Kvelertak photo permissionEdit
I recognized you wrote a message to me regarding user permission for Kvelertak photo. Unfortunately I can't open this message so please tell me what is on your mind on my personal discussion page on my account.
I got a notification that you have sent me an email, but I don't know where to find emails within Wikipedia or Commons (if you know how, please tell me). So, if you have a question for me, please post it here or on my talk page. Thanks, Rob. Robman94 (talk) 21:16, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
- I notice that you've been leaving requests all over the place for permission to use pictures that you've found on Wikimedia Commons. Anything published here is free to use for any purpose anywhere, even for commercial use, so there's no need to ask permission, you are free to use all of the photos (just comply with any requirements for giving credit to the photographer). That being said, I bet the various photographers wouldn't mind if you let them know that you're using it and give them a link to the website. Robman94 (talk) 21:22, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
