Age verification and, just in case, thanks to everyone[edit]

In view of the current uncertainty over Wikipedia's future in the UK, I just like to note here that I am a UK editor who would be locked out of Wikipedia by any geographic ban. As you can probably guess from my writing style, user boxes and account creation date, I am over 18.

If such a ban takes place and you're visiting this page because I've stopped editing: thank you for checking up on me. I've enjoyed working here and have enjoyed most of my occasional interactions with other editors. -- John of Reading (talk) 08:36, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Orphaned non-free image File:Kidderpore SC logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Kidderpore SC logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:26, 29 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

To whom it may concern: the low-resolution JPG image that I uploaded was replaced by a high-resolution SVG image - which, of course, a bot has converted into a low-resolution image. If the file I uploaded gets deleted and later turns out to be useful, it can be retrieved at WP:REFUND. -- John of Reading (talk) 08:59, 30 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

To whom it may concern: the low-resolution JPG image that I uploaded was first overwritten by a high-resolution image, which was downsampled by a bot. It was then replaced by a high-resolution SVG image, which was also downsampled by a bot. I wonder how long it will be before another well-meaning editor decides to upload another high-resolution version?
