Thanks for uploading File:Bulgaria Gabrovo Province relief location map.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

British Isles 10th centuryEdit

Many thanks for all your work on this. I seem to remember that with your original map clicking on 2000px blew it up so as to make the names more legible. Am I correct on this and would it be possible to provide a facility to blow the map up and put instructions how to do this in the 'description'? Thanks again. Dudley Miles (talk) 11:55, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

I have no idea how to do this. There are two rectangles in the right bottom of the picture in the article that are supposed to enlarge it. It links to the Commons' page of the picture and than you have to click once again on the 2000px link. You may ask on the discussion page of the en:Graphics_Lab/Map_workshop --Ikonact (talk) 19:46, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Many thanks once again. I find now that clicking on the map blows it up, so maybe it was a problem with my computer that it did not work before.
One other point. I am slightly colour blind so I may misunderstand, but should 'See' below the description be 'Sea'? Dudley Miles (talk) 22:21, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, sorry, See should be Sea. Corrected. Please let me know if you want me to changes the colours. I have chosen the swamp/alluvium colour without any relation to the adopted colour conventions in Wikipedia. One other point is that I have used another map to present the coastline as it was in the 10th century but I have to consult some experts on this point. Finally, if you need other maps, please let me know. I will be happy to help and I will learn more about the British history :) --Ikonact (talk) 13:58, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the offer. It will be some time before I get to that stage with another article, but I will come back to you then. Dudley Miles (talk) 11:07, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

New mapEdit

Hi Ikonact. You very kindly said that you could help with a new map. If this is convenient, I have a further request. I have been working on w:Æthelred, Lord of the Mercians, and I have amended the map which is currently on the article and created a new one at [1]. I am not sure how legible my writing is, but places I have added are Conwy, Much Wenlock, Buttington, Tettenhall, Gloucester, Berkeley, Risborough, Pyrton, Thorney. Welsh kingdoms: DYFED, GWENT, GLYWYSING. Many thanks if you can help. Dudley Miles (talk) 23:51, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dudley Miles, I will check what I can do. I think the best will be to recreate the map in the article and make it in vector format. Then I will add your modifications. I will keep you informed. It may take a week or two as I am quite busy at the moment. Regards. --Ikonact (talk) 09:17, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
By the way, you can ask for a correction on the Map workshop. --Ikonact (talk) 09:20, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks very much. Please advise if you would prefer I went to the map workshop. Dudley Miles (talk) 09:48, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
It is always better to go to the map workshop :) It is seen by more map makers. I will be happy to do it but I will need a bit of time. On the map workshop it can be done quicker by someone else. As you wish. --Ikonact (talk) 10:02, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
I will go to the map workshop so that an editor who has time can work on it. Thanks. Dudley Miles (talk) 18:51, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
