Thanks for uploading File:Western Maryland regions map.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

All I did was upload two cropped versions of File:Map of maryland counties.jpg, I cropped them myself, and I selected the "I'm not sure" copyright option. I've NEVER uploaded a photo, and I didn't want to make a mistake and select the wrong copyright template or something; I thought I'd let someone more qualified do that and I thought that's what the "I'm not sure" option was there for!

Hi, I now corrected the description pages accoring the source. You "forgot" to use a vali license template. The easiest method for such cropped version is to look into (edit) the description page of the source page and use the same license source, ... regards --JuTa 19:24, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
