Ajax Waterfront Park
Thanks for using this photo. If you tell me what the issue is, I'll fix it and upload a new version. Because you edited a JPG file, the photo in the article is now of a lower quality. I can edited the original and maintain the quality. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 23:01, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Hello User:Magnolia677. I used this photo in Wikivoyage as the heading banner for the article on Ajax here. Banners are supposed to be in the proportions 7:1, so I cropped the picture using the Croptool. If you want to switch that for a better quality image in 7:1 ratio, that would be great. Thanks.

When I try to upload a cropped file using the CropTool, I get this message: "Your IP address has been blocked automatically, because it was used by a blocked user." My IP address is User: I am not aware of any reason that I would be blocked. This is preventing me from creating page banners in Wikivoyage. Thank you. Ground Zero (talk) 11:35, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
It's an issue with the CropTool. Multiple users are facing the same issue. -- CptViraj (talk) 15:32, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
User:CptViraj thanks for letting me know. Ground Zero (talk) 16:22, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
Have you considered applying for autopatroller rights here? You've about 2000 edits here, making it easier for patrollers. SHB2000 (talk) 10:03, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
@SHB2000: Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into that when I get back to WiFi later in the week. BTW, I've had run-ins with the angry guy before. He seems to contribute only a little, but is always up for a barney. It's frustrating, but Illegitimi non carborundum. Regards, Ground Zero (talk) 19:43, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
I agree. But still hasn't learnt their lesson yet :( Cheers, SHB2000 (talk) 22:00, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
