Recategorising to "Lighthouses of the New Jersey"[edit]

You seem to have recategorised my images to a non-existent category, and I'd also prefer that such a category be "Lighthouses in New Jersey" rather than "Lighthouses in the New Jersey". I'm going to revert your edits for the moment, but feel free to give it another whirl should you get the kinks worked out! Thanks! --Thisisbossi 01:26, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Argh. That was a mistake. the THE wasn't supposed to be there. It was wrong in image:NJ LBI Lighthouse 04.JPG; the rest were ok.--User:Parkerdr 03:09, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

Thanks for the Southfield Photos. Let's have some of the Hyatt Regency in Dearborn, One Towne Square in Southfield, and DaimlerChrysler.12.110.179.187 22:52, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Postcard cats[edit]

I haven't either. Maybe someone decided "old" was redundant since we're only putting up ones in the public domain, which would of necessity be old. Let me know what you find out, if anything. Daniel Case 04:14, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Postcard scans[edit]

Hello, I have noticed your image LosAngelesPanorama2007.jpg. In the image discription, you say it is a scanned postcard. I am unsure about U.S. copyright laws, but are you sure that re-publishing a (commercially produced?) postcard does not constitute a copyright violation? Cheers, JDrewes (talk) 21:57, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

When I view the image page, the description says "panorama of los angeles", and the source says "own work". I took the pictures and stitched them together. It was not from a postcard. Parkerdr (talk) 01:21, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
That's strange. If I was mistaken, I apologize. However, I see this on the description page for the current version:
({{Information |Description={{en| }} |Source=Scanned postcard |Date=13 April 2008 |Author=Dave Parker |Permission=See license |other_versions= }} {{PD-US}})
Am I being confused somehow? --JDrewes (talk) 12:18, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
That's in the "history" section for the image, and I did upload a new version of the image, but when I did, I didn't have form to fill in the description, source, etc. It must have gotton that from a previous upload. If you look at the history of the text on the page, you don't see any mention of scanned post card... Parkerdr (talk) 12:32, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Ok then, sorry to have bothered you. :-) --JDrewes (talk) 13:31, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
No problem; Commons needs people who are vigiant concerning proper use, copyrights, etc. Parkerdr (talk) 13:57, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Use of your picture in Businessweek[edit]

An image which you uploaded to Wikimedia Commons of the Montana State Capitol was recently used by the magazine Bloomberg Businessweek in an article entitled 'Best Places to Raise Your Kids'. The image appeared without attribution and did not mention that it may be reproduced under a Creative Commons license. I thought it would be helpful to notify you of this fact. Contact information for Businessweek is available on its website. NotFromUtrecht (talk) 21:13, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

thanks for the notice. I was wondering how this was found out; I see that you have a list and many of these state photos were lifted from commons. Now, I have to figure out what to do... Parkerdr (talk) 12:07, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Use of the Detroit Temple Photo[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture. I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

http://www.freeenglishsite.com/

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA
