Hi David, Dumi, .... all - "Everyone" seems to watch here I think. John Cummings and I are giving a talk about Wikitowns at an open source conference in two weeks. As Joburgpedia seems to be such a growing success (Gandhis House!!) I wonder if someone would care to share : Top reasons its succeeding : Problems: Interesting anecdotes, etc. A couple of paragraphs would be great and more would be splendid. If there is stuff published (presentation from Wikimania?) then please point me at it.
Can I thank all those who have been sharing with me (e.g. Dumi etc.)
- I'll copy this request to our chapter mailing list and see who helps out. Right now everyone is busy with the WLM launch, but they'll probably be able to get back to you soon. --Slashme (talk) 17:59, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks David, appreciated. I do hope WLM are going to cover all the plaque locations! As I say a couple of paragraphs or a couple of pictures would be great. My email is available via my wiki page Victuallers (talk) 18:42, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
I am a Journal Editorial Supervisor for the American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology. I have a Review paper that is using an image that you and Dr. Mikael Häggström co-authored. The image is posted at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Steroidogenesis.svg. Even though Wikipedia states that material posted on their site are free to be reproduced based on the Commons Clearance License, I still need to have written permission from the authors of such material to republish their work. I have contacted Dr. Häggström and he sent me his permission to use this cited image. However, he said you were also an author to this image. Thus I am requesting your permission to republish image for the Review paper. Please send me an email with your response and, hopefully, a permission statement to email@example.com.
Thank you for your assistance!

- Dear Dr Moore
- Please see the licensing information at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Steroidogenesis.svg , which dictates how the image may be used.
- As a matter of principle, I will not be giving separate permission (i.e. beyond the rights that I have already released) for an image that I worked on and intentionally published in a free environment, to be used in a closed-access academic journal, because I have strong objections to the closed access publishing model.
