Hi Stavenn,

I’m here just to say that I’m using one of your pics in my Primates pages (yet in construction). Once I like to know where and how my work is eventually used, I think you would like it, too ;)

Congrats for your beautiful work.--Zecoc 09:34, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

O hai[edit]

What was this about? Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 02:09, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

and this, and this.. Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 02:11, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
...and all the others. WTF? Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 02:15, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
So none of the images you nominated as copyvios were, in fact, copyvios? Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 02:38, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Recap: You tagged a lot of your images as copyright violations, when I think it was quite clear they were not. Why did you do this? By the way, I can't delete accounts, but I can delete your user page if you so please. Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 02:51, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
"Fair use" is not allowed at Commons (the template itself redirects to {{copyvio}}), and isn't even applicable if you took the photos. It is possible for me to delete all your contributions, but I won't do that since 1) I like them all 2) licenses are not revocable. Sorry to hear about your problems. Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 03:12, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi, maybe Template:Pink_CC would be of some help: You could specify the attribution, in case someone uses your pic under CC-by-sa-3.0 license. I think you could upgrade your double license that way (however not withdraw any license ever given -- such are the rules to which you agreed by uploading). Bur please ask Collard's opinion on this proposal before doing -- changing licenses is generally not welcome at all (you should meanwhile be aware ;). Best, --WeHaWoe (talk) 16:43, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Use of "QnZ Cygnus buccinator 00.jpg" in illustration[edit]

Stavenn, I'm an artist doing an illustration for Canadian Geographic magazine. The article is about Citizen Scientists in Canada. The magazine gives an award each year for scientist of the year. This year it's given to all the amateurs who contribute their observations and activities to the furtherance of scientific knowledge in all kinds of fields. I want to use your photo 'QnZ Cygnus buccinator 00.jpg' as an element in the piece because one of the subjects of the article is a boy in British Columbia who counts Trumpeter swans. Your swan is a relatively small element of the whole but I wanted to get your credit right. Should I credit it to Stavenn or would you prefer that I use your full name? You can see the piece at:

Please advise

Hello, Stavenn!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Photo usage[edit]

Hi, I've been working on a small game built around animal quizzes and I wanted to let you know I've used one of your pictures.

I found your picture here:

And I attributed the picture like this: Stavenn with this link: and also added a link to the license:

I hope you're happy with it, please let me know if this is not the case. You can find the game here: Or through here:

Kind regards, Garfunkel Jansen (talk) 08:51, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

P.S. Thanks for taking the picture and making it available.
