Vandalized track file[edit]

The English closed caption for File:National Anthem of Bahamas.ogg has been vandalized. I'd fix it myself but I have no idea how. Reported via OTRS. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 22:21, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Grrrrrr, deleted TimedText:National_Anthem_of_Bahamas.ogg.en.srt. Thanks for bringing this up.
Should we prohibit it for anon users to insert Swastikas completely? -- Rillke(q?) 23:20, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Pls delete[edit]

I accidentally uploaded the same image of mine twice. Can you please delete it one. Delete this one, as it is a duplicate: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Divine_Liturgy_1.jpg Thank you. --Zakharii 01:59, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done Next time please use {{speedydelete|uploader requested}} within seven days of uploading. Green Giant (talk) 02:19, 19 December 2014 (UTC)`

Images uploaded by user:Pmsocialmedia[edit]

Hello! I am not sure whether I am posting this in the right place or not, feel free to correct me if I'm not.

In September of 2011, a (now no longer active) user uploaded several images. All images are tagged as being 'self-made'. However, some images (for instance File:The ten Boom Family.jpg) were made ca. 1900 which makes this claim rather unlikely. It could be argued that an image of that age falls under PD-OLD, but (see the same image) it looks as if might be saved from a website. That goes for File:Casper Ten Boom's family bible..jpg as well. Other images, e.g. File:Ten Boom Museum.jpg and File:Ten Boom Museum1.jpg, might be self-made, but could be 'borrowed' as well. Given the unlikelihood of earlier mentioned images, I am a bit suspicious. A co-editor on the Dutch Wikipedia has tried to contact the Museum but to no avail.

What would be a good course of action? Richardw (talk) 13:13, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Many have come from the museum's Flick River site:
It looks like everything uploaded by the account belongs to someone else. Would suggest putting them up for Deletion Review with the links to the other photos posted here. We hope (talk) 15:13, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for confirming my suspicions. I will start deletion requests for all images concerned. Richardw (talk) 15:27, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Images uploaded by User:Hoary[edit]

That's me. I'm untrustworthy, it seems. Here, Jameslwoodward suggests (politely and amicably) that I ask one of youse to verify that the claim I have made for the copyleft status of each of

is true, and to mark that you have done so by adding a {{licensereview}} tag to it.

Thank you for your trouble. -- Hoary (talk) 12:25, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done Hoary in future on such images just add {{licencereview}} to the licencing field and it can be checked in due course. russavia (talk) 12:36, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Excellent; thank you. -- Hoary (talk) 13:20, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
