Synagogue in Saragosa
Hello! I am turning to you as an author of an article Ancient synagogue (Barcelona). I need a free or Wiki-usable image of synagogue in Saragossa, like here: http://aragonguide.com/622/aragon-guide-place-zaragoza-jewish-quarter--aragon-pyrenees.html, http://aragonguide.com/images/74b02136ddc02fe6aa36146267cf9b48old-synagoge-zaragoza.jpg. I need it it badly for a big article in a Russian Wikipedia on Hasdai Crescas (the single picture in this article provided by me.) (Russian: Крескас, Хасдай), who lived his most important years in Saragossa. Pictures of Jewsih quarter there will do good too. I would be very grateful! Great thanks, --Lkitrossky (talk) 08:47, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Hi there! Concerning the file on Muslim Americans, please note that I am not the original uploader. The only thing I did was to revert a file to a previous version when I found out that sources on their religion an American citizenship weren't sufficient to include two women on the picture. If you ask me, all of the Muslim faiths of all the people on the image should be individually sourced. We shouldn't have to find sources proving someone is not muslim, we should have sources for those who are and leave out of it persons for which positive sources aren't available.

Malcolm X photos
Thank you for thanking me for my edits on Malcolm X, however, regarding the taking down of the photographs, I believe they were in the public domain, as on the Malcolm X gallery, it says on the bottom of the page: note - these pictures are assumed to be in the public domain, if this is not the case, please let us know by contacting us so that we can give credit or remove them from the web site as desired. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mozart834428196 (talk • contribs) 12:57, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
- Hi Mozart834428196. I understand why you thought the photos were in the public domain, but unfortunately the image files' EXIF metadata contained copyright notices. Commons can only host images that have no claim of copyright. I appreciate the fact that you sought to improve the article about Malcolm X with more photos, but Wikipedia and Commons have strict rules about the use of non-free images. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz (talk · contribs) 03:44, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
