Street Lights edits[edit source]

Hi Danny, welcome!

Thanks for your contributions. Note the questions at Talk:Street Light. --Chriswaterguy 21:33, 25 June 2013 (PDT)

Hi Danny, I am Joe and I'm also an admin here. I am concerned about the image you've uploaded at File:Hight-pole-street-lights.jpg - I'm not sure 'fair use' is an appropriate license for this image. Please stick to uploading images which you've either taken yourself or which we can identify as having a license which allows us to display it on Appropedia. Either way, please link to the original source of the image when you upload it or if you took it yourself (and/or own the license to it) please say so in the description.

If it is a commercial image, where did you get it from, and in what context can we use it here - given that we are not generally into promoting individual products? As it stands, my feeling is that these images need to be edited or removed. I'm sure there are many open source street lighting images which can be properly licensed to be used here.

--- Hi Joe, Thank you for your suggestion. I've updated the image now. Feel free to let me know if you have other suggestion. I am trying to find some good quality licensed images for this application. But I can't find proper TOS on these websites. I replaced it with a fair quality image.


I have looked at your updated images, but I'm afraid they are not an improvement. They are commercial images, the only circumstance we can use them is on pages specifically referencing those manufacturers. An example might be using the Coca-cola logo on a page talking about the Coca-cola corporation (which we are very unlikely to have on Appropedia). On the pages where you've used these images, they are illustrating general classes of street light, hence they do not fall within fair-use. As a general point, you cannot upload images here which you cannot find the TOS for - the quality, in this instance, is not relevant. Joeturner 00:54, 27 June 2013 (PDT)

Welcome![edit source]

Hi Cskey,

Welcome to the Appropedia wiki! If you need a general wiki-tutorial, see the main help page (or the more in-depth one on WikiEducator).

Check your preferences. It's a good idea to verify your email address and turn on email notification - then you'll be notified when you get a message on your talk page, or when any page on your watchlist, is modified. You may want to upload a photo or information about yourself to your userpage (which is at User:Cskey).

If you have a particular interest or project in mind, go ahead and start it! If you have questions or suggestions, the best place to leave them is at our community discussion page, which we call the Village pump - you should get a fast response. Or, feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have further questions, need help finding your way around, have a cool idea for a project, or just want to chat. If you just want to know how things work here, check out Appropedia:Policies and Appropedia:FAQ. We're a relaxed and friendly bunch though, and you can also just pick things up as you go.

Glad to have you here!


Hi Joe, I have stopped using these pictures. Thank you for checking this.

Best Regards
