Hi there, Inali, and welcome to WikiFur! Thanks for telling us a bit about yourself and your novels. I've made a few changes to the page about you in accordance with our Book of Style. Let me know if you need any help not already provided. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 23:08, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Maned wolf page up![edit]

Heya, just wanted to let you know that I created a page about maned wolves since there wasn't one. It could use some editing, such as a contents box and the pictures off to the side. Thanks! --Inali

Well, it looks like you figured all that out! I moved it to Maned Wolf because it is a proper name of a species. The contents box will automatically appear if you have four headers in the article. If you do not (or to move it), you can make it appear by adding __TOC__ wherever you want. I sometimes put this inside a div tag that is set to float to the right. You can also hide it with __NOTOC__.
One question I have, though - do you have permission from the people who made those pictures to put them on this site? While I appreciate that you wish to improve the articles, it is not enough to just state who owns the copyright of an image - if you do not have explicit permission (either by having asked them or through a blanket license or copyright wavier), we cannot display the images. That's what copyright means, after all . . . the right to make copies. Both the Ark Gallery and Kenneth W. Fink/Root Resources sources appear to be non-free in this respect (indeed, the Ark Gallery seems to have a specific note at the bottom saying that images are not for reproduction elsewhere).
Oh, and one last thing - on talk pages, it's easier to know who's talking if you sign your name at the end. You can do this by typing ~~~~, or just ~~~ to do so without adding the date and time. --GreenReaper(talk) 03:13, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

I will email them and ask permission. If I can't get it from them, I'll ask some others until I get written permission. Where do I post that I have written permission when I get it? Thanks!

You should put the permission on the image information page, the one that comes up when you click on the image. You can edit it just like any other page. If you fail to gain permission for those images, let myself or another administrator know, and we will delete it from the WikiFur image store. --GreenReaper(talk) 14:04, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
I very strongly feel that we should delete the images; they can be uploaded again if permission is given. -- Sine 16:16, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
Then do so. --GreenReaper(talk) 19:08, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Image:Sparkdrabbit.jpg, Image:Sparkdragon.jpg[edit]

Hello InaliKealoha,

This is in regards to Image:Sparkdrabbit.jpg, Image:Sparkdragon.jpg. It has not been tagged with a copyright status. This can be a complicated area, so I can try to help if you need any. The Wikipedia Image use policy may give some background, but it isn't policy here.

To deal with this image, there are a few choices:

  • If you are the copyright holder, release it under a free license, for example:
  • If you are asserting that this image is usable under fair use, add an appropriate fair use tag. A very basic summary is that fair use is used for commentary, criticism and review on the image when no free image could be used instead. Some fair use tags are:
    • Logos: {{logo}}
    • Covers: {{Cover}}
    • Comic panels: {{Comic-panel}}
  • If the image is already under a free license, provide information on the license, and tag the image if you can.
  • If you would like the image to be deleted, ask any administrator

To see a list of current copyright tags available on WikiFur, see Category:Image copyright tags If the copyright status is not resolved, the image may be deleted.

Unless you have a question for me specifically, I'd prefer responses on the page for the image. --Rat 21:52, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
