Image:RAID ant and roach.jpg[edit]


This image cannot be accepted as it is a derivative of the design. Note that this is not a personal point of vue, but done according to current Commons policy and copyright legislation. On my personal opinion, it would be acceptable into Commons. Finally, I undeleted it pending further opinions. Regards, Yann 21:09, 27 February 2007 (UTC)


Hi, this image (and possibly others) has been uploaded in your name. Could you confirm that you are the author and that you have released it with the stated licence? Thanks a lot. --Eusebius (talk) 15:45, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

File migration from GFDL to CC-BY-SA-3.0[edit]

Hi, you may not be aware that "In accordance with the Licensing update and associated WMF Board Resolution, Wikimedia will be exercising its rights under GFDL 1.3 to dual license existing GFDL content — text and images — under CC-BY-SA 3.0 (Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0) starting June 15th, 2009."^.

  • Basically files with GFDL1.2 with the "and later versions" licenses are now available under GFDL 1.3 which allows us to migrate them to a CC-BY-SA-3.0 license. I note some of the files you have uploaded or edited have the {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual}} template which suggests to me that you may not want to expand to the more open CC-BY-SA-3.0 license.
  • I urge you to make these files more widely usable by adding a more general license yourself. But understand that this may not be possible (eg if the original is not your own work). If you are happy with the 'migration' of the license you can either widen the terms yourself or do nothing and it will be done by a bot anyway.
  • The Commons community has recognised that some people may want or need to opt-out of this 'migration' - to do so: add the text "migration=opt-out" to the license template eg {{GFDL|migration=opt-out}} or {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual|migration=opt-out}}
I hope that this is of some use to you, don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions (although I'm not actually an expert of licensing questions :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 02:11, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


Hi Dante - does the OTRS ticket for the file you uploaded File:Dugong - profile.jpg offer any information on where the photographer took the photo? Thanks! - MPF (talk) 14:08, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Excellent, thanks! - MPF (talk) 23:31, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
