Ref.: User:Dcoetzee/NPG legal threat
If not already in the works, perhaps it is time to consider these charges as defamatory? And not only toward Wikimedia F. and the individual, who were initially victimised by yet another unconscionable act by the British against Americans (I believe minor skirmishes aside, this all began in the eighteenth century), but also those like myself. I have no feel for how many of us there are, but I'm surely not the only one who has committed yet one more "act of treason" against the Empire of England, am I? My crime was, purely for reasons of proper formatting, to download one of the images in question, switch the horizontal orientation so the subject would be facing in the opposite direction, and then upload my new rendition of the image to Commons. There was an almost immediate reaction to delete the image, not on a copyright vio, but just because such things shouldn't be done. Eventually, it was allowed that it wasn't a problem as long as it's mentioned in the the image caption. Thus far, the only places this image is linked are the correctly oriented image and my Wikipedia User page. The image in question is File:Benjamin Franklin by Joseph Siffred Duplessis left.jpg, and I would be more than happy to participate in any class-action countersuit that may arise in this most recent "war of independence".

If you do launch a defamation lawsuit are you going to do it in the UK where the law re: defamation is generally recognised as plantiff friendly and rather strong or the US where given the 1st Amendment and stuff like that it's generally considered defendent friendly and rather weak. Also I'm confused about what the suggestions of (I presume) wikipedians many of whom I'm guessing were Americans instead of the NPG to delete an image because they didn't agree with flipping it has to do with anything related to the other stuff you're discussing. Nil Einne (talk) 19:11, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
Just to clarify, to launch a defamation suit is not really my style. To support a defamation suit, and/or to defend myself in a lawsuit if necessary, is moreso my style. If you are familiar with what I was rambling on about (see User:Dcoetzee/NPG legal threat), then you know that this is really about the fact that that user originally uploaded the Ben Franklin image. I suppose it was my unlearned and goofish attempt at satire to include myself in the proceedings just because I uploaded an altered image of Ben. You see, it wasn't the suggestions to delete the image, but the suggestion by British law that Dcoetzee had done something wrong by uploading those photos that I was on about. Hope this clears it up for you, and thank you very much for your response! Paine Ellsworth (talk) 13:48, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you for uploading File:Billy the Kid Headstone.jpg to the Wikimedia Commons. I noticed that when you uploaded from another Wikimedia project, you left out some important information, or copied it incorrectly. In the future, please consider using CommonsHelper, a tool which automates the process of moving files over. Thank you,

If I could have used the tool, I would have. It didn't work. CH2 and a couple of other tools wouldn't work either, so I had to do it manually. I'll check it to see what I did wrong. Thank you for letting me know! Paine Ellsworth (talk) 17:44, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
PS I've used the tool before, which is why I now have a toolserver uid and password (see above).
The Toolserver has been picky recently, so try the version on Wikimedia Labs. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:35, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much, MtO! If I run into a picky toolserver again, I'll give it a shot – or did you mean I should use the version on Wikimedia Labs as primary? Paine Ellsworth (talk) 23:18, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
I wasn't being that specific. If the one on Labs is more reliable, then go with it. And vice versa. I haven't used the Labs version enough to say which is better. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:27, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Paine Ellsworth,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2016) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.
