Band picture
« on: July 12, 2007, 05:51:10 am »
Hello! I'm currently after an photo of the band. It's for the Wikipedia article on the band, but unfortunately it needs to copyright free or released under a free licence.

The current image there was deemed replaceable and I'd hate for the page to be without a photo.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Image_use_policy#User-created_images
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machinae_Supremacy

I'll greatly appreciate any help anyone can give.

I have no idea. But it'd have to be explicitly stated as being free/free licenced for it to be used as such on Wikipedia.

Cheers Gaijin, couldn't spot one showing the while band though, the best being http://random.motljus.net/index.php?id=298 but Jonas is hiding Tomas. :/

Unless someone comes up with a better one, I'll use it either way. Would you be alright with releasing it to the public domain or using a free licence?

Thanks. :)

Hm. I guess that's a no? Anyone else able to contribute? I consider the wikipedia page to be a worthy source for potential fans, so a picture there would help greatly. Ta.

Shouldn't we be able to use one of the promo pics if we write a disclaimer that we have permission?
