I have been an active editor at several Wikimedia projects since 2003, but have long primarily worked at Wikiquote, where I am an administrator, as Kalki.
Blessings to all.

OTRS call for help[edit]

Dear Kalki. The volunteer response team (aka OTRS) is currently lacking colleagues to take care of questions regarding the sister projects wikibooks, wikinews, wikiquote and wiktionary. As you appear to be active on at least one of them, I'd like to invite you to volunteer at OTRS/Volunteering. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you in advance for considering. --Krd 08:30, 3 May 2016 (UTC)Reply


Hello. When you uploaded File:WikiQuote-JUL-150-1.png, you did not specify complete source and copyright information. Another user subsequently tagged it with {{GFDL-presumed}} and, for some time, it has existed on Meta-Wiki under the assumption that you created the image and you agreed to license it under the GFDL. This assumption, however well-meaning, is not legally sufficient and the tag is being phased out. Images using it are being deleted. This image has been tagged for deletion and will be deleted in one week if adequate copyright information is not provided.

If you, personally, are the author of this content, meaning that you took the photograph yourself or you created the chart yourself (and it does not use any clipart that you did not create), please retag the image with a free image copyright tag that correctly describes your licensing intentions, usually {{GFDL-self}} or {{PD-self}}. Please also make sure if you have not already done so that you write a good description of what the image depicts, when you took the photo, and other important details. This will allow Meta-Wiki to continue using the image.

If you did not create the image or if it is derived from the copyrighted works of others, please keep in mind that most images on the internet are copyrighted and are not suitable for use on Meta-Wiki. Meta-Wiki respects the copyrights of others and does not use images unless we know that they have been freely licensed. Any creative work is automatically copyrighted, even if it lacks a copyright notice. Unless the copyright holder has specifically disclaimed their rights to the image and released it under the GFDL or another compatible license, we cannot use it. If you did not create the image, simply do nothing and it will be deleted in a week.

Please feel free to contact me on my talk page or leave a message at Meta:Babel with any questions you may have. Thank you. Green Giant (talk) 07:08, 9 April 2017 (UTC)Reply

The same applies to all your uploads but I don't want to fill your talk page with notices. Green Giant (talk) 07:33, 9 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
I believe I have now updated the obsolete licensing info on all the uploads I made during the 2003 logo suggestions contest. ~ Kalki (talk) 12:48, 9 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
Checking Category:Proposed Wikipedia logos I realized there are a few more I haven't yet tagged — but have to attend to other things right now — will get back to updating them within the next day or so. ~ Kalki (talk) 12:59, 9 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
Cheers. Take your time. You've actually done more than most of the users whose uploads I've reviewed. Green Giant (talk) 22:25, 10 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
I believe that I have now provided all the previously mentioned images with updated license tags. ~ Kalki (talk) 23:55, 13 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
