While I'm not terribly active at the moment, I am a former administrator here, so I know my way around the wiki – if you have a problem, let me know how I can help!

I am currently an administrator on the English Wikipedia and am familiar with the OTRS system, so if you need help at either of those, please let me know.

  • To do: Go over the government public domain rules and check them against Commons' licensing templates for accuracy, completeness, and clarity.


I often find {{Iowa General Assembly official portrait permission}} to be useful.

Note: Even though I am interested in the law, I do NOT offer legal advice via Commons or other projects of the Wikimedia Foundation. Comments on copyright, etc. are in reference to the various Wikimedia policies and should not be relied upon for legal purposes. Similarly, edits related to legal topics are for general understanding (as in a Free Encyclopedia) and should not be relied upon for legal matters. It goes without saying, but an encyclopedic article or discussion can not substitute for a meeting with an attorney who is familiar with the specific facts of your case and who is familiar with the national, state/provincial, and local laws and regulations.
