Administrator's assistance

This is a place where users can communicate with administrators, or administrators with one another. You can report vandalism, problematic users, or anything else that needs an administrator's intervention. Do not report child pornography or other potentially illegal content here; e-mail legal-reports@wikimedia.org instead. If reporting threatened harm to self or others also email emergency@wikimedia.org.

Why someone removes pictures from wikicommons without contacting the person having uploaded it?! 'Found elsewhere on the web and unlikely to be own work' is no argument at all! I obtained the permission from the photographer and uploaded the file (because the photographer is no wiki-person and has other things to do, but you can contact him immediately, as soon as I got the signal that there is a problem). But simply removing is quite arrogant. CorneliusHasselblatt (talk) 17:38, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm guessing this is about File:Veenker.jpg, which was deleted by Krd. When uploading, you stated that this was your own work and that you were the copyright holder, which is obviously not true. You also linked the author's name to your user page, which is misleading. Regardless of whether you obtained the author's permission to upload the file, those untrue and misleading details on the file description did make it a copyright violation. Such files are eligible for deletion without prior warning (though you should have been notified after the fact). Such deletions are in accordance with policy and do not constitute vandalism. To get the file undeleted, please follow our documented procedure. Do note that permission to upload the file to Commons is not sufficient; you need the author's permission to publish the photo under a license that allows anyone to use it in modified or unmodified form for any purpose, including commercial purposes.
