- Hi Martin,
- I'm wondering why you deleted my images 'File:Vote Counting in Timor-Leste Elections.png' and 'File:Water well built in Bangui, Central African Republic.jpg.' The Timor-Leste elections one came from a UN document with a UN symbol that is 'designed primarily to inform the public about United Nations activities' (http://www.un.org/en/peacebuilding/pbso/pdf/peacebuilding_orientation.pdf), which makes it allowable under PD-UN. The water well image came from the front page of the Peacebuilding Support Office website, which I though would fall under "Public information material designed primarily to inform the public about United Nations activities" from the PD-UN.
