Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Someone is posting my photo in his 23hq account   April 15, 2012, 08:31 AM

I don't know, if this is by mistake or intended, but I found my photo here posted by another user. Could somebody clarify this? Thank you and regards.

Have you contacted the user?   April 15, 2012, 10:05 AM

Hi Steffen, I posted a message under my photo in his account. Could it be, that he is posting content, which he has no right to do so? Look at his gallery.

Yup, that's my question too. For now, I have taken the photo offline (marked it private). Would you mind sending him a mail through and see if he reacts. If not, let me know and I'll take it from there.   April 15, 2012, 10:34 AM

I posted him a message: "Hello .....,

today I saw, that one of my photos ( was posted in your gallery. I am happy, that you like my picture, but I would rather prefer to get contacted and asked about the possibility to repost and use my photo, since I am the copyright holder of it. I contacted about it, so in a first step they marked the photo private. I urge you to delete the photo from your account. If you like my photo, you can add it to your favorites here in

I opened a discussion thread under , where you can clarify thinks.

Please mail me or post a message in the discussion thread about what your next step of action will be.

Thanks and many regards"

Let us see, how he is reacting.

Hmph. Most of the photos in that account are scans or sourced from the internet. Which is sort of ok, except that the default copyright claims ownership.

Not cool, fellow Canuck. Not cool.   April 28, 2012, 09:08 PM

Einar Vinqvist does not respond. Indeed not cool

I have reached out to the user via mail, but haven't heard back yet.
