Poster of flowers[edit]

Hi Kaldari,

I have just used one of your excellente pictures to make a poster of white flowers: File:White flowers b.jpg. It is one of the best in the bunch... Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:03, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Nashville picture for my homepage?[edit]

Hi Kaldari,

I wanted to verify (FAQ writes, that I should), that I can use your picture from Nashville

Nashville skyline 2009

for my homepage. Can I use it as a picture in the header? (It's about my country [and soul] music)

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards Josh T. Cute

Sure you can use it all you want. I would prefer to not be credited anywhere. Thanks. Kaldari (talk) 07:02, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay. Thx again :) (I think, I'm commited to relate to the copyright holder under german law) Josh T. Cute

a heads-up[edit]

In 2011 you participated in Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb_(de-adminship 2). That discussion ended with User:Jcb losing his administrator privileges.

This note is to inform you that User:Odder proposed Jcb have unconconditional access to administrator privileges restored.

Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb (readmin) is scheduled to close on May 20th.

I think the spider picture you identified as Phidippus johnsoni is actually P. cardinalis. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 04:38, 20 May 2013 (UTC) I think I was wrong, anyway. I'll find that picture again. I've raised a couple of P. johnsoni and I don't think the one of yours I was looking at looks right, but the one I found had the wrong carapace color. I'm blind, obviously. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 05:16, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Oddly I never noticed before. All the P. johnsoni that I have seen have lacked the spots, but Edwards says that most specimens have the spots. My mistake.Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 12:06, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Curious about your take on this[edit]

Not "Deleted per Turelio" but "Kept per Turelio". Stupid mistake. --High Contrast (talk) 19:18, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Grand Theft Auto logo series.svg[edit]

The U.S. laws do not apply on Commons but it's international. If in wikipédia French is prohibited so it's prohibited in Commons in general, because is more restrictive. Sorry for my english, the origin of law or copy right isn't an argument. 08:26, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Dealing with the URAA[edit]

Hi, I see from your posts at Commons talk:URAA-restored copyrights that you are interested in tackling the problems that the URAA causes us here on Commons. I've started a new policy that might help, at Commons:Hosting of content released to the public domain globally. Could you have a look, and also add your thoughts to the talk page? I hope you will support it! --MichaelMaggs (talk) 10:40, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Maryland Decriminalization[edit]

Kaldari, would you be willing to update the US cannabis laws map since I can't seem to figure that out?

Map updated. Kaldari (talk) 19:52, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

A pie for you![edit]

A very beautiful Nectarine Pie.jpg Thank you for your edits! I am still learning on here, but would like to change the color of Maryland for the update. Can you assist? Dialectic2012 (talk) 00:16, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

hockey photos from Flickr[edit]

Hi! I uploaded a series of hockey photos from Flickr, but a bot seems to be unable to find them in the gallery :(. If you could approve them, I would be most grateful.

Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:37, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

@Hawkeye7: The problem is that the file pages don't link directly to the images on Flickr, just to the photoset. If you change the links on the file pages, the bot should be able to approve all of them. Kaldari (talk) 21:52, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Attribution for image[edit]

Dear Sir,

I would like to use your image of the "Twin-spotted Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus magister) in Phoenix, Arizona" available at , in an extension-outreach publication related to pests in community environments. This publication is purely for educational purposes and has no commercial interests whatsoever.

However, the suggested attribution format, "By Kaldari (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons", is very different from the style I will be following for other pictures in my publication, which will most likely be much shorter and in the format:

"Photo by Abc Defghijk", or "Photo by Abc Defghijk,".

Therefore for the sake of consistency, kindly let me know whether I may cite the images in the above formats, and if so, what name/affiliation should I use.

Thank you! Sincerely, Shaku

Shaku Nair, Ph.D. Assistant in Extension, Community IPM University of Arizona - Maricopa Ag. Center 37860 W. Smith-Enke Road Maricopa, AZ 85138-3010 Cell: (520) 840-9429 Office: (520) 374-6299

Re bugzilla:71897[edit]

Hi. I saw that you enabled wgCopyUploadsFromSpecialUpload at testwiki and later removed.. Is it okay to enable it here at commons? (i.e., Do you know whether any nasty things happen when it's enabled?). Regards, --Glaisher (talk) 04:58, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
