Changing Infobox photo[edit]

Please help me with Changing an old photo on Infobox. I have a photo with no copyright I'd like to place up with the photographers full permission which I can provide if wished. I'd like to credit him wit taking the photo. How do I do this. I'm really stuck and I keep getting a message that I'm not allowed to upload anything! I'm getting very confused. Can any one help me please? Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Baillon (talkcontribs) 16:23, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

@Baillon: Hi there, in order to upload photos, you must be an autoconfirmed user. That means your account has to be four days old and you must have made at least 10 edits. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 14:56, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
@Baillon: you declared that you took the photograph when you uploaded the File:Gordon_Giltrap.png but above you said somebody else took the picture. You need to make it clear as otherwise the image could be deleted due to copyright concerns. MilborneOne (talk) 17:50, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

I tried hard to upload an image taken by someone else gaining necessary permissions but was unable to do so. I promise that I took the photo which is currently on the site. I can send you a whole page of similar photos I took at the same time if you don’t believe I took it. I give Wikipedia unlimited rights and access to use the photo exactas you wish. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Baillon (talkcontribs) 10:09, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Tim Andree[edit]

Hello, I'm Lucy and I work for Dentsu Aegis Network. As I've noted on my profile page, I created an account to represent the company and propose changes to related articles. I'd like to start by sharing a draft article about Tim Andree for editors to review. Tim is an executive at Dentsu, but was first notable for his professional basketball career. His name is linked at Dentsu Aegis Network, 1983–84 Chicago Bulls season, and Chicago Bulls draft history. Will someone from WikiProject Biography review the draft to make sure he meets criteria, then take it live? I'm confident he is eligible but prefer other editors to review first, given my conflict of interest. Thank you! LH Dentsu (talk) 16:16, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

You should try submitting it; see Wikipedia:So you made a userspace draft for some help, advice, and links to tutorials. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 03:56, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
