Salut Carribou! Thanks for your contributions!

I have a little question about the images: who has created them? If you made them yourself it's all good, if someone else has made them they have to be released under a sufficiently free license. Otherwise we might have to remove them, or ask for permission to the copyright owner. (The same problem exists on the CouchSurfing wiki, but there it has been ignored and no one from the people in charge really cared about this issue.) guaka 14:56, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

However, I just came across a very neat possibility: It's now possible to directly use images from Wikimedia Commons! Just find the image you want to use and put it here, e.g. [[File:Bandeau_France.png|300px]] for Bandeau France.png from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bandeau_France.png Almost all images on Wikimedia Commons have been checked on copyrights, and it's highly encouraged to use them, and also to upload your own work there and then use it here. :) guaka 23:35, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
