Hi Goodvac! I noticed your recent uploads from flickr - nice pics! One small request - would you please choose the highest resolution flickr photo available? I've gone to flickr and uploaded the highest res file available of the princess cruise ship already. Thank you! Brynn (talk!) 22:25, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
It seems to be a problem with Commons servers. The image is stored, but the download right now it's really slow. I'm sure it will be fixed in the next hours. And as Brynn said, please check if you upload the best resolution available. In Image:Carnival Liberty-sun deck.jpg you uploaded the "large" version, instead of the "original" one.

- Yes, one of them is OpenPhoto.net. ;) And there be others out there, but Flickr and OpenPhoto are the most popular. Cheers, KveD (talk) 19:23, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Re:Is this correctEdit
Hello! Thank you for the note, it's always a pleasure to hear from someone asking questions and trying to do things the right way :D
First off, the way you credited the image was correct. However, I'm afraid the image would be classified as a copyvio; images on photobucket are either copyrighted to the person who uploaded them (in cases of family photos, travel photos, and so on) or, in the majority of cases, are copyright violations stolen from the web. Photobucket does not have a licensing system for those users who do upload their own work.
It is possible to ask the uploader to release their work under a free license, if you can contact them, but due to the large-scale copyright violations that go on at hosting sites like photobucket and tinypic, it is very VERY hard to trust that people actually do own copyright to the images. The best solution is to stick to flickr, where users can add licenses to their photographs which you can then search through. I'm not sure if you're aware, but if you choose "advanced search" there is an option at the bottom of the page where you can search only for CC-licensed images; if you check all three boxes the results will all be photographs with licenses compatible with the Commons. COM:FLICKR has some helpful information and tips that may prove useful :)
