Hi Chstdu. I was patrolling recent uploads when I noticed this Kelly Rutherford photo. It is obviously a photo taken by a professional photographer (who would be the copyright holder) - professional photographers rarely license their photos in such a way that anyone can legally copy, distribute, and/or modify their photos. If they have licensed the photo this way, that license info should be posted at the source so we can verify it is freely licensed. -Brynn(talk!) 15:27, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
If you created this image, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
In all cases, please do not take the deletion request personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!
Hallo Chstdu, nachdem der Fall solange offenblieb, ohne dass ein Beleg für die notwendige Genehmigung vorhanden ist, blieb mir nichts anderes übrig, als dieses schöne Bild zu löschen. Es kann jederzeit gerne restauriert werden, wenn über OTRS diese noch nachgereicht wird. Grüße, AFBorchert (talk) 23:13, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.
Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.
