Pocahontas Consolidated Stock Cert question[edit]

Hello- I noted the B&O stock certt, GREAT pic. I own a Pocahontas Consolidated Cert from 1907, cancelled in 1917. I wish to upload the image for an article, HOW do I mark the image to note that its in the Public Domain, much as your B&O cert us nowCoal town guy (talk) 15:57, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram reply.svg Glad to be of help, Coal town guy. As a certificate published in the U.S. in 1907, it's Public Domain same as File:B&O RR common stock.jpg, so all you need to put in the License section is {{PD-US}}, and the template will do the rest.

Crested Saguaro Cactus Location[edit]

I believe the location specified for the image at is incorrect. The location specified (32° 16′ 20″ N, 110° 7′ 0″ W) appears to be well east of Saguaro National Park East (Rincon Mountain District). I recognize the "crested" saguaro cactus you have shared in your image as being located outside the entrance to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (just outside the southern boundary of Saguaro National Park West). I can forward an image file if you'd like to see what it looked like as of last week (not a whole lot different as might be expected given the cactus' growth rate). I thought you might want to consider changing the information on the location of this cactus to {32.244112, -111.167622} for the benefit of individuals who may want to visit this cactus in the future.

Kind regards,

Robert M. Taylor

Hedwig in Washington, Many thanks for your message. Indeed, the blockee was notified of the block and the reason for it on his talk page here.  JGHowes talk - 22:53, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Wooops. I didn't notice that in all the copyvio chaos and his talk page. m( --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 22:57, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
That's certainly understandable! The block was necessary to prevent the blockee's re-uploading of his previously deleted copyvios and obscuring or falsely stating the source to evade re-deletion, as evidenced by ‎File:Jagtar Singh Hawara.jpg JGHowes talk - 23:22, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
He's pretty creative. Nothing good will come from him, that's what my gut tells me. Well, let's decline and move on. ;-) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:40, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Imagenes del articulo Camargo (Chihuahua)[edit]

Hola, las imagenes que yo subí a Wikimedia son de mi autoria, imagenes que tambien subi a mi cuenta de Facebook y Youtube ("File:Lago Colina.png", "File:Reloj Camargo.jpg", "File:Santa Rosalía.jpg") después con esas imagines contribui a el artículo de Camargo. Pero he visto que las has quitado de ahí ¿entonces quiero saber cómo puedo hacer para que las pueda restablecer?--Lalof3 (talk) 04:32, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
