Seeking permission as requested .....
I hope you will not delete the photos and the article as it's been difficult to date. I anticipate there will be a little delay, but I am hopeful the information your asking for is achievable.
Thank you for getting in touch much appreciated

- Hi 220.127.116.11 (Charles Dobson). I'm not exactly sure which file you're referring to, but it sounds like one I may have tagged with a Template:No permission since. If that's the case, then please read COM:OTRS for further details on obtaining permission from the original copyright holder (if that's not you yourself). Generally, the photographer holds the copyright on any photos they have taken unless they have transferred the copyright to another party. Please understand that Commons only accepts freely licensed content and that it certain cases the explicit written consent of the copyright holder is sometime required for verification purposes. Commons does tend to delete files whose licensing is ambiguous or cannot be verified per Commons:Project scope/Precautionary principle, but any file which is deleted can be easily restored via Commons:Undeletion requests if the licensing is resolved at a later date. For reference, I am not an administrator so I cannot delete files myself, but the file is likely to be deleted by an administrator after a certain date if permission to upload it cannot be verified. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:32, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
