It could only be replaced with another photo showing exactly the same box.I didn't find Lethal Squirrel's usage post when I went looking previously.
  • 7bit (Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:14:53 +0200) OK, then maybe we delete it and replace it by some images from Half-Saint or Ascaii. At least those 2 have one of these Dino-Alps boards.

Some people here take it upon themselves to upload images belonging to another forum member, with or without permission, but frequently without any comment.So whose images are they? The name recorded by MediaWiki as the uploader, is not the author of the image. You can't take the username in MediaWiki to mean anything.The image sixty posted is on KBDMania (I found this because IIRC someone else on Geekhack is hotlinking it directly from KBDMania). Thanks to the useless URL format they use, I can't trace the image back to the forum post it came from. As such, I can't tell who posted it to KBDMania. sixty was very thorough with his watermarking, and that image is not watermarked.I don't know what's going on. One guy has posted it here without any ownership details, another guy at GH as hotlinked it without bothering to credit the source, and I can't tell whose image it is and whether we're allowed to use it.There have been plenty of images uploaded to the wiki that were stolen off other websites. That's the whole problem.
  • 7bit (Wed, 17 Sep 2014 20:16:41 +0200) These are safe to use here:Lethal Squirrel gave us permission to use these. Just look at the Geekhack thread where he originally posted them ...Wait!What is wrong with this one?Uploaded by Sixty => no problem.Except for the following images, everything uploaded my me, User:7bit, is my own work and needs not to be deleted!I'm quite sure Muirium will not have anything against this:I think this scan is from Sixty, posted here on DT:These are from PrinsValium (bipiphany) posted in some Phantom thread: This is from HaveANiceDay and I'm quite sure he has nothing against it to be used in the wiki:Users gave permission to use them as DT headers, so why not in the wiki:This goes for all files of the form: "File:Dashboard*"Anything else is from me, so just write something that automatically adds"Copyright by Desktority Club" or whatever you think is appropriate.

Let's just wait a bit
  • HaaTa (Sat, 30 Aug 2014 20:12:50 +0200) I'm definitely guilty of uploading a few of the above.One of the ones lacking attribution is from MouseFanhttp://www7.ocn.ne.jp/~hisao/image/N860-9201.htm
