US Flag Photo Question
About this photo: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Flag_Backlit.jpg
Would you have a problem with it being used on the website for Four Block (fourblock.org), a non-profit organization that connects war veterans with job opportunities?
I don't really represent Four Block; I'm simply helping them with their website. If you don't want us to use it, no problem! There are plenty of flag photos out there. This one is great and high-quality, though, so I thought I'd ask.

- Comment - Thanks for the support. I didn't want to offend anyone, and when I saw that comment about national flags, I took it the wrong way. Jnn13 (talk) 04:32, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Comment I get it - incidental national flags are OK (e.g., if they are not the subject of the image), but I wonder if this is 'incidental,' when even the name of the image identifies the flag as an integral component of the image. Makes me wonder if the image would have been approved without the flag? Should the image be delisted as FP, or should it be put to another vote, given the 'no national flags' policy? Also striking (imho) is that there is no mention of the 'national flag' issue in ANY of the photos linked here...Flag1, Flag2, Flag3Jnn13 (talk) 23:05, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikimedia blog profile
Jnn13, I'm moving this interview request from one of the Wikimedia blog volunteer writers to your talk page. Apologies for him having put it on your user page. If you're interesting in doing an interview, we'd be happy to profile you on the blog.
My name is Michael Guss and I'm a communications volunteer with the Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco. We have a feature on the Wikimedia blog  to profile the photographers behind the beautiful photos that become Picture of the Day (POTD) on Wikimedia Commons. You can see some of our past POTD posts here: https://blog.wikimedia.org/c/communications/picture-of-the-day/ Given that one of your photos "Panorama of New York City Skyline in 2009" is scheduled for 11 September 2013 , we'd love to do a short interview with you by email to discuss your photography and your POTD. Please let me know if you would be interested! You can email me mgusswikimedia.org or respond on my talk page.
Hello, Jnn13. I'm with the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and am not sure how to credit your flag photo...is it just Jnn13 or is there a different name? I would be using it on social media, most likely. Best, Janice firstname.lastname@example.org
