Seaton Hall Surrounding Area Map.jpg - to be undeleted[edit]

This file has been deleted erroneously as user Fastily has incorrectly identified this as not my work. I spent a long time drawing this map and resent the allegation without being contacted first. I would like this reinstated.

I'm sorry that I choose that way of uploading the file, but i'm not found right way. This file is not my work, but work of my friend. He deligated me to use this file in Wiki. So we decide to upload it in flicr and use this licensing. What is the right way to upload this file? With best regards, --Poletniy (talk) 11:00, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

В общем, мне разрешил публиковать это изображением сам автор. Но он не википедист и не может самостоятельно загрузить картинку ввиду ограничений викисклада. Мы решили с ним залить ее на flicr, а потом выбрать соответствующую лицензию. Как правильно следовало поступить в этом случае? Что нужно сделать, чтобы восстановить изображение? Автор готов подтвердить свое разрешение нужным способом. С уважением, --Poletniy (talk) 13:05, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

File:Robert Joseph Greene Press Phto.jpg[edit]

and File:Robert Joseph Greene V2 Press Photo.jpg

I find it kind of odd that I was told that "" Everything has been received and nothing further action is needed" and then 25 days later gets removed. We made the license change as you requested and in fact the photographer emailed wikicommons, too. So, I don't see why this was removed.

Furthermore, I want the person who DELETED this to go back to the notes (discussion) site where it said "" Everything has been received and nothing further action is needed" and tell me WHY THEY FELT they could override another wikicommons editor's comments and just remove a photo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Desaderal (talk • contribs) 08:30, 31 May 2013‎ (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have examined OTRS ticket 2013050410007827. The words you quote above, "Everything has been received and nothing further action is needed" do not appear there. All that we have received referring to these images is an e-mail from a g-mail account in which the photographer says
"While I retain full rights to my work, I grant Robert Joseph Greene the limited rights and permission to use the images, labeled Robert Joseph Greene Press Release and Robert Joseph Greene V2 Press Release, for promotional distribution and usage."
As our OTRS volunteer told you, that is far from the CC or other free license which Commons requires for images kept here.
I find that the purported photographer who sent the g-mail message is something of a mystery. We are told that it came from Ben Odynski at Odynski Studios. Almost all professional photographers have a web site showing off their work. This one does not -- in fact, except for the interchange with WP and Commons, "Ben Odynski Studios" doesn't show up in Google at all..     Jim . . . .

I don't understand -- or perhaps, you don't. Both files were "deleted" by Administrator Krd at the same time for the same reason -- that the OTRS permission was not valid. Both files are still visible to Admins -- we never actually delete anything.
You say
"The words were written in the discussion of file:File:Robert Joseph Greene Press Phto.jpg by an editor who was monitoring the file." -- ::Where? The file never had a talk page. I don't see anything related to this in your history. Of course we have more than 17 million files, so it is possible that I missed something.
Although I would like to track down the source of your misunderstanding -- we try hard not to confuse new users -- it is irrelevant to the central issue here, which is that we need a valid license from the photographer, coming from a verifiable source. .     Jim . . . .

Apesar da defesa feita pelo user:Maddox, o sysop Jim deletou a o arquivo File:Profeta gentileza.jpg, desconsiderando a argumentação por manter, que é válida. A Lei do Brasil consagra a liberdade de panorama, ela considera que obras de arte expostas em local público não são obras passíveis de direito autoral. Logo, o autor da fotografia é o verdadeiro dono do direito autoral e poderia dispô-lo em favor do commons. Esta eliminação foi completamente absurda. Leandro Rocha (talk) 19:36, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

The Act enshrines Brazil freedom of panorama, she believes that artworks exposed in public works are not subject to copyright.

Since this file was deleted almost two years ago, I think your outrage is misplaced. It appears that the Brazilian FOP applies, as it is said to be under a public underpass. I have therefore restored the file.
With that done, I emphatically reject your assertion that the painting is not subject to copyright.

File:Example.jpg Restore pages please[edit]

Reason: Kiriorigami is a Japanese paper craft hobby name and a book of Kriorigami ("Three dimensional insects kiriorigami ") was published in Japan 2009. "kiri" means cutting and "origami" means folding paper. Most simple style is making any image with cutting and folding paper without glue. Using scissors, "Kiriorigami" become easier and more free than traditional "origami".The pages (photographs) prove the charm and the easy techniques clear. The three photographs uploaded are used under the permission of the each artist and the other 3 three photographs are my works. These pages should restored to tell the charm and the difference "kiriorigami" and "origami (or "kirigami").

Hi there,

This photo was delelted with the reason that there are buildings on it, and that we cannot have photos of buildings because the architechts might have copyrights. A legal case should be made for this. If indeed it is the case that photos containing buildings cannot be published it would have huge implications for this website and all media using photos! Thanks for looking into it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:|]] ([[User talk:|talk]] • contribs)

Un-delete Rebecca Lindsey images please[edit]

To Whom It May Concern:

What was uploaded belongs to me (I reserve the copyright to the images) and as such I reserve the right to fair use images. The uploads are realistically useful for an educational purpose since it coincides with what is written about Rebecca Lindsey whereas it is her album cover. All rights and permission are with Rebecca Lindsey to post what belongs to her, which is all the pictures that were up loaded from her website, included the deleted photos.

All photos are freely licensed as well as have been in several public domains for years. These pictures serve as evidence that what was written about Rebecca is in fact true.

Please un-delete these photos as soon as receiving this request and please addwww.rebeccalindsey.net the deleted photos to the write-up about Rebecca Lindsey as soon as possible.

Thank you, --Samantha Beddingham (talk) 04:25, 3 June 2013 (UTC) Samantha Beddingham Rebecca Lindsey Management

OK, you seem slightly confused about our licensing requirements. You are uploading these images to en:Wikimedia Commons - we exist to assist in the proliferation of freely licensed images. As such, we do not allow any fair use images (for that matter Wikipedia does not generally allow fair use images of a living person). There is only one "public domain", and if someone releases an image into the public domain then they are releasing it from all copyright and can hold no say over what happens to it thereafter. The same is true for free licences, albeit with a few restrictions. But the general idea is that if you release an image, you don't control it anymore, you can't say who can and cannot use it, you can't say how someone can use it, or where. Further, just having an image on a website does not release it into the public domain, it just means people can see it more easily. -mattbuck (Talk) 06:54, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
As for the images you uploaded, let me go through them one by one.
That said, I would expect to see most of your other uploads deleted. Put simply, you could be anyone - we've had people claim to be Angelina Jolie before to upload photos. If you are Ms Lindsey's manager, please understand that we are trying to protect your copyright - we can't let people upload promotional photos (or similar) without proof that they have the rights to release. Sure, it could have been Ms Jolie uploading, but it seems unlikely - more likely it's someone who likes her and found some images on google. We have to apply that standard, and I'm sorry you got caught in the crossfire. If you email our permissions team from an official Rebecca Lindsey email address, we can work something out. -mattbuck (Talk) 07:20, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Un-delete Rebecca Lindsey images please[edit]

To Whom It May Concern:

This is not an "of course" copyright violation, as was written. As stated earlier, I OWN THE COPYRIGHT to my album cover. I have since 2006. That is how my album cover is everywhere on the Internet, as it has been since 2006. I put it there. I give Wikipedia permission to post my album cover on to its website.

Any questions or if you need anything else to show my permission to post my album cover that own any and all rights to on your website, please let me know.

Hope that clears this rather frustrating and difficult debate, that should not have been a debate once I said I own it and give permission for you to post it, up.

Thank you,

Rebecca Lindsey

Ms Lindsey, I'm very sorry for all this, but you have to understand we are trying to protect your works from people impersonating you. We get that happening all the time - people see an image on Google and think that because it's on the internet it lacks any copyright restrictions. Please email our permissions team from an official email address and we can get this sorted. -mattbuck (Talk) 07:23, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

I am shocked by the deletion of this file because it clearly doesn't violate any rules. I'm a reputable freelance writer who takes several pictures at events where expectedly a lot of journalists are present to take similar pictures or perhaps similar postures. So the fact that a magazine had used an image used by me doesn't mean I'd violated your policy or I wasn't the rightful owner of the work.

File:Tonye Princewill.jpeg[edit]

I feel really so embarrassed to be linked with copyright violation over an image that is genuinely mine. The image in question was taken at a public event where several photographers were gathered which afforded everyone the right to take as many pictures as possible without any restriction on the pictures taken because it was a public function. Since I wasn't the only photographer present at the event I would expect similar picture to be used or seen at other places and for different purposes but that doesn't mean I wasn't the rightful owner of the material uploaded on this site. So please I hope you will understand that picture of public figures taken at public event by several people (who are legitimate owners of what was taken with their cameras) could be used at different places and platforms. So on that factual note I politely ask that you undelete the image as quickly as possible. Thank you Lekantodu (talk) 09:45, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

File:Gone with the wind Leigh and Howard.jpg [edit]

I believe the following files were mistakenly deleted:

They were deleted as per Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by User Aylaross and Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by User Rossrs on the basis that the trailer includes a copyright notice, with a link to this specific trailer. The problem though is that this is not the original theatrical trailer. It is the trailer for the 1961 reissue, clearly indicated 10 seconds in by the big writing scrawled across the screen: "Saluting the Civil War Centenary". There is also a fresh voice-over proclaiming it the winner of "ten Academy Awards", which it obvisouly didn't win before being released. The uploader clearly indicated the caps were taken from the original theatrical trailer which didn't include a copyright notice.

Unless we have reason to believe the original uploader was not honest about where he sourced the images, then they should be restored. In any case the deletion rationale they were deleted under wasn't valid, so they should be restored and re-nominated if there are any further problems. Betty Logan (talk) 23:14, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

  • If the trailer was reissued in 1961, then it means that it was published before 1964. Was the copyright to the trailer renewed? If not, then it shouldn't matter if it has a copyright notice or not. --Stefan4 (talk) 20:45, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
GWTW was released in 1939, and reissued in 1947, 1954, 1961, 1967, 1971, 1974, 1989 and 1998, but according to the US copyright catalog no trailer has ever been registered for copyright, although it only goes back to 1954 with the film itself being re-registered back in 1967 (after its 28 year term). The trailers themselves are often updated for the purpose of the reissue such as Civil War centenial, the cinescope reissue, the 50th anniversary etc, although they have a lot of common footage. Betty Logan (talk) 02:34, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Were these deletions an instance of us trying to be more Catholic than the Pope? US copyright laws underwent several key changes in the 20th Century, correct? At one time nothing was copyright, in the USA, unless it bore an explicit copyright notice -- correct? At one time copyrights had to be renewed, to remain valid, correct? Wasn't that at the 28 year point? Wasn't it a big hassle? Wasn't that why the copyright of It's a Wonderful Life and tens of thousands of other Hollywood films were allowed to fall into the public domain? Aren't all these images from the period when images weren't copyright without an explicit notice?

File:Portrait of Nello Puccioni, 1902 by G. Costetti.jpg[edit]

This painting is my proprety, and has been in m family ever since it was made that is 1902, over 100 years ago!! Nobody can claim copyright on the painting. The photograph I have taken personally. So there is jus no way there can be a copyright violation!!!

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I disagree. The fact that you own the painting is not relevant. It is almost certain that the copyright to the painting belongs to the heirs of the artist, Giovanni Costetti. Since he died in 1949, the painting will be under copyright until January 1, 2020. Your photograph is a derivative work and infringes on the copyright. The only way it can be restored to Commons is if we receive permission from the artist's heirs using the procedure at Commons:OTRS. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 01:27, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Hrm. By today's standards, the copyright of a painting actually remains with the author, even if the physical copy is owned by another. Per it:Giovanni Costetti, the author of the painting died in 1949, so the copyright of the painting will not expire until 2020 (The January 1 following the 70th anniversary of the author's death). Italy's law does give strong portrait rights to the pictured person, which are separate from the copyright -- per the current law (articles 96 through 98), the pictured person's heirs can cause a photographic portrait to be used without permission of the author, but automatic payments need to be made to the author (Costetti's heirs presumably) for any commercial use. That section is specifically for photographic portraits though not paintings. I did say "by today's standards" because I don't know what the legal situation was in 1902 -- if by the law of the time, the copyright of the commissioned portrait was owned by the person who commissioned it, then later law changes would not have changed that -- the pictured person's heirs would then own the copyright and have the rights to license it. But the copyright definitely still exists. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:37, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:Haarle[edit]

Category:Haarle was a disambiguation category (cf. fr:Haarle, nl:Haarle and nds-nl:Hoarle). In my opinion it is needed because, as yet, it is unknown whether Category:Trekshoes, Haarle is in Hellendoorn or Tubbergen. Some pseudonym seems to be unaware of the geography of Overijssel.

Category:Trekshoes, Haarle is a faulty name, this place does not exist. --Foroa (talk) 01:10, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Even if the name would be "faulty" (for which you offer no proof), the 4 pictures of "Trekshoes" would still depict the same farmhouse. The place (the farmhouse) does exist: it is far easier to take 4 pictures and make an error in the name of the farm, the street, or the hamlet/village than to fake those pictures. According to https://www.google.com/search?q=%2229+May+1965%22+Netherlands+site:commons.wikimedia.org H. Hagens visited Hezingen (in Tubbergen) the same day.

  • This says a lot about how we handle deletion of categories. Obviously the history of the category won't show that it was once populated and recently emptied, so admins deciding whether to delete it only see that it's empty, but emptying a category and then requesting its deletion because it's empty is sneaky and we should discourage it. As to this particular category, I can see the use of tracking comment-less DRs if that's not already done, so I'd have no objection in principle to re-population and undeletion/re-creation. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:36, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose If you go through Commons:Deletion requests/Old, my guess is that you'll find atleast 5000 DRs closed without a comment. Before the above cat was emptied, it contained a little over 100 DRs. I think the emptying of the category as "useless" was justified. I personally close nearly all my DRs with no comment because of their simplicity. I would point out that this is in-line with policy, which states: "In many cases, where there is little discussion and no disagreement with the request, no details are required." I don't see why we need a category to collect and monitor DRs closed according to policy. Again according to policy, the closing admin should be asked about any DR where the outcome is questioned. A DR can also be re-opened or brought here if needed. Also, I disagree with the above claim of dishonesty. There's no secret that FSV is an alternate account of Fastily, so it's not like he was trying to hide his actions. INeverCry 16:44, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Discussions about sense or nonsense of a category, or discussions about empyting or re-populating of a category is nothing to bother COM:UDEL with. If there is content in there it can be created (the source code was [[Category:Sorted deletion requests]]__HIDDENCAT__). --Martin H. (talk) 16:48, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
The category was emptied and deleted as a useless category for a reason. I don't think it should be re-created. I'd like to see or start a discussion at COM:AN if there's intent to re-create this and re-populate it, and the discussion can't be continued here. INeverCry 17:04, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
AN is Administrators Noticeboard. This is not about asking admins to notice something, it's about undeleting (and hopefully continuing to populate) the category. Sinnamon Girl (talk) 17:15, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Your category unnecessarily monitors a standard admin action. There are procedures in place, as I've stated above, if a closure is questioned. Do you intend to populate that category with all the DRs closed without a comment? My estimate of 5000 is very conservative; the number is likely above 10000. Deletion policy allows for no-comment closures of simple DRs, so what is the purpose of an indiscriminate category like this? If you question the validity of a close, you should question the closing admin. If this doesn't resolve the issue, the DR should be re-opened or brought here. INeverCry 17:49, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

10,000 is way low. I'd guess that I myself have closed 10,000 DRs without a comment, probably many more. As INC has correctly said, policy is perfectly fine with that. At least half, maybe 2/3s of all DRs are very simple and obvious and require no comment. Creating this category and putting some, but not all, qualifying DRs into it, invites abuse. If one wanted to start a vendetta against Admin X, it would be easy to put all his no-comment closures into this category and then claim that since he was the largest offender in this way, he should lose his Admin bit. I think such a category is an inappropriate waste of our resources. I agree completely with Fastily's action. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:40, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Where is this paranoia coming from? Has something like this happen? We already categorise DRs and something like this has never taken place. User:Mattbuck for example has a very large interest in populating Category:Nudity and sexuality-related deletion requests, but it is very clear that he does all within the policy, so there will never be a successful deadminship on that ground (in fact mattbuck helps out quite a lot by taking 10 extra seconds to categorise all his DRs himself). Sinnamon Girl (talk) 01:51, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
It's not paranoia, it's an application of practicality, which you are obviously incapable of comprehending. You're creating a problem where there is none, and this 'wastes everyone's time. I think the real problem here is not this category, but rather you and your unhelpful contributions. 2600:1013:B016:3CC1:CC44:A427:EF12:BC3 02:29, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose I stand by my original reasoning.

  • The way categories are implemented contain terrible weaknesses.
  1. There is no convenient way to determine whether a category ever had elements in the past;
  2. There is no convenient way for the contributor who added the element to the category to justify why it belongs;
  3. It is (unfortunately!) traditional for contributors to decide an existing category has a bad name, to create a new parallel category, and to empty all the elements from the first category into the new category -- without ever seeking the opinion of any other contributors.
  4. There are bots, like Siebot, which are used to transfer all the elements from one category to another category -- which do not leave meaningful edit summaries, so individuals seeking an open and transparent explanation for the recategorization have nowhere to turn.
  5. It is (unfortunately!) traditional for administrators to delete empty categories, on sight, without any thought that they might have been emptied due to vandalism, or due to an ill-advised hijacking.
  6. When contributors do initiate discussions over choices of category names, those discussion can remain open for years.
Addressing the first two weaknesses requires a rewrite of the wikimedia software. However, the remaining weaknesses can be addresses without a rewrite.
  1. Can we make a greater effort to educate contributors not to empty the elements of existing categories into new categories, without calling for discussion first?
  2. Can we suspend Siebot, and other similar bots, until they are rewritten so they leave edit summaries that provide an open and transparent trail to the human or discussion behind the recategorization?
  3. Can administrators stop blithely removing empty categories. As a stopgap, surely a simple tool could be written that could check to see if the category had recently been emptied? Administrators could use that tool to make sure they weren't deleting valid and useful categories that had been emptied in a questionable manner?
  4. Can we go back and close all those discussion in a timely manners?
Some people above have suggested the individual who initiated this discussion may be a sockpuppet. If true, that would be irrelevant to me, so far as this discussion is concerned, as even a stopped clock is correct twice a day, and I think the initiator has raised a very important point. Geo Swan (talk) 16:12, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Restore -- and reverse the emptying of this useful category.
Some rogue administrators used to never explain their closures.
Some administrators usually explain their closures, but skip this step when they think the rationale for their closure is "obvious".
In my opinion every closure should have an explanation.
First, this is a world-wide project. What we think is obvious is actually highly culturally relative, so, as I wrote in a wikipedia essay, Nothing is "obvious". If the closure is truly simple, then it should be a simple matter to leave a closing explanation of the form, "as per Commons:SomePolicy#Subsection".
Second, what seems "obvious" in the moment can seem opaque, months, or years later. If I had a nickel for every time I asked an administrator to explain a past closure where they skipped adding an explanation, and found they could no longer remember their reasoning... Geo Swan (talk) 16:59, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Current deletion policy, which I've cited above, allows for closures without comment. This category would potentially have 20000 or more DRs in it. How would such a huge indiscriminate category be helpful? Also, it would definitely not be a "simple matter" to include a rationale in every DR as you suggest. We only have a handful of admins closing DRs on a regular basis, and so adding a rationale for each simple close could mean hours of extra work each week for closing admins. INeverCry 17:19, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:Deletion requests closed without a comment[edit]

Crystal Clear action loopnone.png Moved/copied to Commons:Categories for discussion/2013/06/Category:Deletion requests closed without a comment rather than closing this discussion, I'll let it "die in the ass" amongst "deaf ears" in this venue as it will be less controversial that way. Penyulap 01:48, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:Deletion requests closed without a comment

i'm re-opening this request, which was closed by the initial requestor after a rather unfair "barrage" of criticism, almost entirely from admins who work in deletions...

the matter WAS NOT settled in the previous discussion, & the only reason the requestor withdrew their nomination, was from despair @ making any progress in the request.

the discussion was then HASTILY & perfunctorally closed by one of the OPPOSING admins; which is not exactly appropriate.

the initial request to restore is below; i will add my comments separately

"It was deleted by User:Fastily saying that it is "Empty category". But it was only emptied by User:FSV. At the very least that is dishonest. Sinnamon Girl (talk) 15:47, 2 June 2013 (UTC)"

(Edit conflict) I wouldn't be using the word dishonest, that implies an intention rather than a co-incidence, which you have not shown. As such it is a personal attack.
with all due respect; how is it a "co-incidence, when ONE user empties the category WITH THEIR OWN BOT, & then THE SAME USER deletes the category "non-controversially" as empty, USING THEIR USERNAME ACCOUNT?
i mean what? "oops, i forgot i was cheating the rules"?
Lx 121 (talk) 21:26, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Lol (to the opps comment, otherwise it's no laughing matter), yes, I am very very sorry LX 121, I was wrong and you were right, FSV, when I look at the userpage is indeed a bot, I didn't know enough about Fastily to know he even had a bot or it's name. I am sorry.
Yes, as I say below, this is sloppy, however, there is the above UDR discussion which clearly enough shows it to be a shit-list that had to die, viewed from that point of view, and I do see all points of view, it was ok if you assume good faith, just sloppy from other viewpoints. I guess it depends on what you *want* to see as to wether you see all points of view, or just hand pick the nasty one. Penyulap 21:39, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
I would suggest labelling the category page with something along the lines of "In many cases, where there is little discussion and no disagreement with the request, no details are required." and "estimates of the number of DR's closed without comment is well above 10,000", links to policy, so on. Then wait 12 months, and re-delete the category based upon it not being used, Like Bart and Lisa Simpson, Bart only wants it if Lisa does, if Lisa gives Bart the category, he won't want it because it doesn't annoy Lisa anymone. I support undelete, only with the labelling stated, as a lovely way to keep people busy doing virtually nothing "Useless busywork" as Lisa calls it, or, if there is merit to the category, they can happily prove it. Undeletion is cheap in this case. Cheap. Cheap. Cheap. Prove me wrong. Penyulap 21:18, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
i thank-you for your support in restoring the category, but i politely & respectfully object to any attempt to "sabotage" its potential usefulness, but implmenting an unwieldly rename. clearly, ANY rename should be in accord with the category naming-conventions in place @ commons.
that said, i respect your right to have the opinion that you consider the category unuseful, & i politely & respectfully disagree with you about that point. Lx 121 (talk) 21:26, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
No no, I am not saying it is useless, I am saying that it's usefulness hasn't been outlined properly, or look at it this way, I think I am at least a little bit smart and I cannot myself understand the purpose of the category myself. If you can explain it to me I would be thankful so I can find a way to implement the category in such a way as it doesn't upset people, but you wholeheartedly achieve the purpose that you are pursuing. At the moment, I can't do that because I can only see the category being used to take a portion of the tens of thousands of discussions and label those belonging to admins that you don't like and pointing to it while playing everyone's favourite game 'wall-o-crap' :D seriously, that's one hell of a fun game, but I don't know if that is why we are all here, I'm just asking, I'm just requesting, please, tell me and help me to understand because I really do want to know, what is this category actually for ? why can't a bot find the tens of thousands of DR's in an emotionless (read harassment-free) and impartial manner ?
Also I am not suggesting a rename, but would even support "Category:Crappy deletes", that was not what I was wanting, I just mean having a blurb at the top, same as many categories have a blurb at the top, to mitigate people misunderstanding the purpose of the category. We know what it is not (or should not be) just need to find out what it IS, to go with that. Penyulap 21:46, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

1. this categorgy was IMPROPERLY DELETED

admin-user:Fastily EMPTIED the category, using a bot, & then performed a "non-controvertial" deletion "BECAUSE THE CATEGORY WAS EMPTY".

that is a naked abuse of the rules

the user wasn't performing a rename, or improving the organization of the category, they were UNILATERALLY DISMANTLING a part of the categorey-schema.

if the user objected to the category, the appropriate action was to add a cfd tag, & post their reasons.

IT WAS NOT APPROPRIATE TO "DISAPPEAR" THE CATEGORY, & pretend that it was a "non-controvertial" deletion.

this was a particulrly innapropriate action FOR AN ADMIN.

& the user STILL doesn't admit any wrongdoing.

the user should be sanctioned for this action, their use of bots should be restricted/CLOSELY-monitored & if it is repeated, and/or if simillar actions are shown in their user history, then they should be considered for de-admin-ing

2 this was an administrative category, for the purpose of keeping track of deletion patterns. it was both potentially useful & non-harmful.

& i find it notable that the objections to the existence of this category ALMOST ENTIRELY come from admins WHO PERFORM LOTS OF DELETIONS; that would seem to suggest that the involved admins object to closer monitoring of their actions, & THAT violates the principle of TRANSPARENCY in the wiki-community.

ESPECIALLY since the operation of this category REQUIRES NO EXTRA WORK ON THEIR PART.

now, here is the kicker:

fastily claims the whole thing was a "non-controvertial" deletion.

IF that's the case (& it would seem that all the supporting deletionist admins agree),

THEN

NO ONE HAS TO "REQUEST" THAT THE CATEGORY BE RESTORED

all one has to do is restore & repopulate it; that way, it is no longer an "empty category".

isn't that cool!? ^__^

& if user:fastily deletes it AGAIN, then they can be cited for edit-warring.

& if any other user deletes it "non-controversially", then we can go back here

OR do an rfc

OR go through dispute-resolution.

on the other hand, if some user wants to cfd it, then we can go through a PROPER DISCUSSION there; which is WHAT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Lx 121 (talk) 21:15, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I wouldn't call it improper, I'd call it sloppy. Should have read "a category that SHOULD BE EMPTY at all times". The commons community time and time again has moved to can 'shit-list pages' which, as the creators haven't done enough to show why this is not a 'shit-list' it should be empty AND Deleted. Pretty simple no matter how you cut and tie it. Maybe there IS some purpose beyond harassment, but it has yet to be outlined. Penyulap 21:28, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
I would suggest that another consensus of 'delete' is formed first, and that consensus includes the use of the FSV bot to de-cat, and then someone else caps the category in the head, like, if consensus is to cap it's ass as a shit-list. But hey, where are the reasoned arguments FOR the category ? Come on, someone say how this is a useful category please. Penyulap 21:32, 5 June 2013 (UTC)


with respect, i don't understand why you consider a category used to track uncommented deletions to be either a "shit-list", or "harassment"? o__0
to me, it's a matter of tracking operations @ wmc.
it's useful to be able to see how many "uncontested" deletions there are (or deletions closed without a comment by the closing admin, or etc.).
it's useful to be able to assess the quality of past deletion activities, & to discover when & where we have problems...
it's useful to have this information at hand, when having discussions about deletion policies and/or user problems, etc....
we have simillar resources for other areas of operation, so why not here?
that said, i wouldn't object to moving all such functions over to the toolserver, IF toolserver was set-up for that, & IF the wmf wasn't ass-deep in the middle of making a huge mess out of our toolserver, but i digress...
Lx 121 (talk) 21:50, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Oh ok, I get some of that, and actually I agree that things like 'uncontested deletion' are certainly a problem, in cases where anyone nominates any image for deletion and it is then deleted because nobody objects, that is something against the charter of the project, (and a good reason why en.wiki is failing). We do need that addressed.
The other objectives I think you would fail if you try to do this manually, I agree with you that an automated process is required. I can't see anyone categorising them fairly unless they are going to do ALL deletions from a particular date forward, rather than play 'follow their favourite admin', I'm sure you can see that someone may possibly misuse the category. An arbitrary or automated approach would be better.
On the other hand, can we skip forward, and see that there are problems, just to assume that there are, and ask ourselves, "What do we do next" what do we do about it, what changes can we make to improve the situation and make proposals about what to do. Thing is, if nobody is disputing that the problems exist, then we may not need to prove the problems exist or how large they are, we can just fix things right now. Penyulap 22:00, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm not a real fan of the category, but I do strongly oppose people unilaterally emptying a category and deleting it "because" it was empty. We have places to have the discussion.--Prosfilaes (talk) 00:27, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Crystal Clear action loopnone.png Moved/copied to Commons:Categories for discussion/2013/06/Category:Deletion requests closed without a comment Penyulap 01:50, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Since my comment was requested I will post here. I have realised that I chose an incorrect name for the category, in fact there should be two separate ones: 1) Category:Deletion requests closed with no discussion (for those that have only the nominator and the closing admin) and 2) Category:Deletion requests closed without a closing comment (for those that admin has closed without clearly specifying a reason). Therefore, since I doubt that Fastily will restore the damage and it will still take time to begin repopulation it makes little sense to restore the category with the ambiguous name. Finally, I do not understand why people say (sometimes in the same post) that both are within policy and that it is a "shit list". Sinnamon Girl (talk) 02:58, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
In a nutshell, INeverCry and Jim are giving estimates of 10,000 and 20,000 items for the category, people are suggesting it would need a bot to fill it, and that is without answering the primary question, which is what purpose can it serve, or rather, what on earth can we do with 20,000 items in a category ? do you want someone to go and do anything with them ? what ? It is more useful to people who are making collages to categorise the images on commons into red, green, and blue images, but where is the demand ? So you have only one thing that you can do with the category, that is, fill it manually, which suggests people shall focus upon their least favourite sysop, who is doing what they are supposed to be doing. After all, didn't someone quote policy pages as saying no comment is required ? Penyulap 03:32, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I would appreciate a help of a bot. Sinnamon Girl (talk) 03:41, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

File:Tz zanzibar-afroshirazi.PNG[edit]

In use at w:ca:Història de Zanzíbar and w:ru:Флаг Занзибара and Commons:Deletion requests/File:Tz zanzibar-afroshirazi.PNG does not specify the SVG one would have to use. Without the allegedly worse PNG, it is harder to find the replacement.

Compare Commons:Deletion requests/File:Flag of Xinjiang-Shicai.gif which was kept even though the SVG was mentioned. Perhaps based on Commons:Superseded images policy#Redundant/bad quality. --80.114.178.7 11:51, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support We do not delete superseded images -- only if the PNG was generated from the SVG or something like that; otherwise it is not a duplicate. Commons talk:Superseded images policy. The fact the PNG even was used in articles is enough to keep it, let alone being *currently* in use. Carl Lindberg (talk) 12:13, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Rather than speculate about whether the file you cannot find is a duplicate or not, 80.114.178.7 could ask where the svg is at on User talk:Antemister

File:Batatais FC.jpg [edit]

Boa Tarde,

Estou entrando em contato para solicitar a Revisão da Suspensão da imagem por mim adicionada, pois trata-se apenas do Escudo do Clube, Batatais Futebol Clube, da própria cidade de Batatais, Interior de São Paulo - SP, Brasil, sendo assim, algo público de utilização freqüente, inclusive pela própria imprensa na divulgação de informações do clube e das competições que o mesmo disputa. Por ser um Clube de Futebol, e inclusive de alta visibilidade, suas informações e divulgações de imagens e notícias já caracterizam algo público, e consequentemente por ter este tipo de trabalho, já possui os devidos direitos de imagens acordados com seus atletas e patrocinadores, possibilitando seus devidos usos publicamente.

Sendo assim, fica incoerente e errônea essa Suspensão, então peço por gentileza, a Reativação e Reinserção da devida imagem (Ficheiro).

Obrigado,

Paco Batatais


Good Afternoon,

I am contacting you to request a review of the suspension image added by me, because it is only the Shield Club, Batatais Futebol Clube, the city itself Batatais, interior of São Paulo - SP, Brazil, so something public frequent use, including the press itself in disseminating information and club competitions that the same dispute. Being a football club, and even high-profile, your information and disclosures pictures and news already feature something public, and consequently to have this type of work, already have the necessary rights to the images agreed with his athletes and sponsors, allowing their proper uses publicly.

Thus, this is inconsistent and erroneous suspension, then please ask the Reactivation and Rehabilitation of proper image (File).

Thank you,

I fell that this page was deleted incorrectly and had vital information

Hello, unfortunately the internet is full of images that have wrong copyright information (some say that they are copyrighted when they are not, many more say they are PD when they are copyrighted). Unfortunately it looks like there is evidence that NASA did not check the status of these images, and thus it is impossible to determine their copyright status. If you have any information that would show that this is created by NASA please state it, if this information needs to be private please forward to COM:OTRS.

File:Abbas al-Musawi.jpg [edit]

I dont understand why this file had been deleted. It had been published in Flickr with a right license (cc-by 2.0), with the shot been made on the streets of Baalbek, Lebanon, on October 13, 2008. Leoboudv claims that it is a derivative file, but do not provide the original file or any proof of that. I had found another Flickr copyrighted photo of the same banner, but its clearly not the same shot as the other one, see the date of the shot (December 29, 2008) or the fact that this latter one had been made from the inside of a car (the car glass window is clearly seen). Im not an expert on Commons and its rules, but I dont see where the problem with this file is. Regards, --HCPUNXKID (talk) 14:24, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

File:Batatais FC.jpg [edit]

Boa Tarde,

Estou entrando em contato para solicitar a Revisão da Suspensão da imagem por mim adicionada, pois trata-se apenas do Escudo do Clube, Batatais Futebol Clube, da própria cidade de Batatais, Interior de São Paulo - SP, Brasil, sendo assim, algo público de utilização freqüente, inclusive pela própria imprensa na divulgação de informações do clube e das competições que o mesmo disputa. Por ser um Clube de Futebol, e inclusive de alta visibilidade, suas informações e divulgações de imagens e notícias já caracterizam algo público, e consequentemente por ter este tipo de trabalho, já possui os devidos direitos de imagens acordados com seus atletas e patrocinadores, possibilitando seus devidos usos publicamente.

Sendo assim, fica incoerente e errônea essa Suspensão, então peço por gentileza, a Reativação e Reinserção da devida imagem (Ficheiro).

Obrigado,

Paco Batatais


Good Afternoon,

I am contacting you to request a review of the suspension image added by me, because it is only the Shield Club, Batatais Futebol Clube, the city itself Batatais, interior of São Paulo - SP, Brazil, so something public frequent use, including the press itself in disseminating information and club competitions that the same dispute. Being a football club, and even high-profile, your information and disclosures pictures and news already feature something public, and consequently to have this type of work, already have the necessary rights to the images agreed with his athletes and sponsors, allowing their proper uses publicly.

Thus, this is inconsistent and erroneous suspension, then please ask the Reactivation and Rehabilitation of proper image (File).

Thank you,

I had to make this request again, as it seems no one had consistenly proved that this file is a derivative work, because THIS FILE AINT A DERIVATIVE WORK. I dont think Im asking for too much by simply asking for a proof that this file is a derivative work, as some other editors are claiming. So please show the supposed original file that you claim this file is a derivative work of. Simply as that. Regards, --HCPUNXKID (talk) 23:15, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The image is a picture of a painting -- whether it is a poster or a larger work, I can't tell, but, in either case, it is clear that the work that is pictured is relatively recent and, therefore, still covered by the copyright belonging to its creator or his heirs. The subject image is a DW of that work.
As a general rule, any image of a created work -- sculpture, painting, photograph, architecture, text, and so forth is a DW and may be kept on Commons only if either the original work is out of copyright or we have a license from the artist. Neither is the case here.
Note that this is the second UnDR by this user on this work -- see 14:24, 8 June 2013. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:22, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
What? First, the banner shows a photo, not a painting. So you are claiming that the supposed copyright (can you tell who is the artist copyright owner? Because talking about a copyright without knowing the owner is at least a weak point of view) of that banner means that a photo of that banner couldnt be accepted, although it had a free license? If so, there are plenty of examples in Commons of relative recent photos of banners, posters, etc..., for example File:F1000015divinevictory.JPG and lots like this, so I suppose that they should be treated equally, dont you think so?.--HCPUNXKID (talk) 17:27, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
And about being the second UnDR is like that because the first discussion was closed so quickly that I dont even had the chance to express my POV. Regards, --HCPUNXKID (talk) 17:29, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
We honor all copyrights, even if we do not know who the copyright holder is. The banner clearly has a copyright, so without permission from its creator, it cannot be kept on Commons.
The fact that there may be other images on Commons with similar problems is irrelevant. We have more than 16 million images. I would not be surprised if 1% of those were problems -- that's 160,000 images. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:02, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

File:Lion of Judah wheel.JPG[edit]

File:Lion of Judah wheel.JPG is the admitted source of File:Lion of Judah wheel.PNG, it isn't a "duplicate" like the tag-team Antemister/Fastily claims. --80.114.178.7 00:47, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Hmmm. Oddly, the PNG version was nominated by Antemister at the same time with the reasoning "this is not an official roundell, but a private creation. Out of scope" -- but it's in use so it was kept. Normally we do keep superseded images (I'm unsure a PNG created from a JPG adds much value but I guess it did for someone), so that would argue in favor of keeping the original source image. However I have licensing reservations -- this is a vector-images.com work, which we decided were non-free (as mentioned at {{Vector-Images.com}}). It is marked as being PD due to age, but it would appear to be a modern rendition of the basic arms design, and as such would carry a modern copyright -- the copyright is not based on the general design but rather the specific rendition (unless the design is so simple as to make any rendition uncopyrightable, but that is definitely not the case here).

File:RijksmuseumAmsterdam.jpg[edit]

File:RijksmuseumAmsterdam.jpg was in use at [nds-nl wiki], some foreigner changed it 15 April at 15:41 (whether CEST or GMT, I don't know), some other foreigner deleted it at 18:18 and replaced it.

I don't think that an image isn't "in use at a wikipedia" just because someone changed the page a few hours earlier. What's more important, by redirecting the original picture to the allegedly "higher resolution" picture, the nds-nl wiki not only could not check the change, but was (falsely?) let to believe that the two pictures were duplicates. --80.114.178.7 01:58, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Files should never be deleted because they are not in use -- but they can be deleted if they are duplicates. Given the logs on the original uploads[6][7], File:RijksmuseumAmsterdam.jpg was moved to Commons on April 10, 2008, with the (archived version of the) source link here, while File:Rijksmuseum1.jpg was moved to Commons on April 24, 2008 with the (archived) source link here. The source .jpg of both of those links are identical -- i.e. it was the exact same image used in two different places on the original website. The image today is a lightened and enlarged version of that same photo, it would appear -- unsure if someone edited the original, or if they found a larger version elsewhere. These days I think there are attempts to preserve the image upload history when moving to Commons, as opposed to just keeping the most recent revision, so the history can be seen. And perhaps one may want to upload that original to Commons and then immediately revert to the current version, just to preserve some of that history. But unless there is a reason to have the original available as a separate file, it does appear they were duplicates. When those are marked for speedy deletion, and it appears an obvious case, yes that will probably happen quickly. Carl Lindberg (talk) 05:25, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Image deleted in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Evans Evans Tours coach, 25 July 2011.jpg[edit]

I've objected to this deletion on the admins talk page, but all they would say was that it was out of scope in their opinion, which is hardly helpful given that's what I was disputing by going there. There was only one other person who wanted it deleted, and I've laid out my objections to their opinion on that admins talk page, ending with this comment]. To repeat in part, contrary to the opinion of that editor, this image is most definitely not too small or too fuzzy to be of use, and his description of it as being merely an image of a 'big red bus' was quite alarming in its level of ignorance (We have thousands of images of big red buses, are they all at risk now? And it's not even a bus, but a coach). The basic facts are that it was large enough and clear enough for two categorisable qualities to be easily identified, namely vehicle model and operator, and in the latter of those cases the image was definitely unique on Commons. Two other categorisable qualities were also available based on location and date, neither of which are currently represented on Commons for this operator in any other image. Given all that, this clearly should not have been deleted for being out of scope, and certainly not when the only delete comment seemed to also be based on the faulty ideas that doing so was OK because I could always go and get a better image (which is clearly not part of the deletion policy, and even so I cannot, as I live miles away and it may not even be replicable due to the time that has passed), and that it wasn't used (clearly irrelevant to deleting something for being out of scope).

File:HarryArnold CD.jpg [edit]

Hi.

I'm the chairman of a musical group (a big band) that is run as a non-profit organization. We made a CD a couple of years ago and contracted a graphical designer for the CD cover. We ordered it exclusively for us, paid for it (owns it) and have the explicit permission from the graphical designer to use it whatever way we want.

I uploaded the file "HarryArnold CD.jpg" and stated the someone else was the origin, submitted his name and that we have his explicit permission to use it. However, we got a notice that the file is up for deletion.

Should I go about this in another way? I can't see how we cannot use our own production but apparently I haven't been able to give the right references or similar?

Hi there,

Good day.

I was having a problem for a specific image that was deleted. I am actually the owner of the image that was deleted. I was making a profile of a person last week but having problems learning how to create one so I drafted my work first in my computer. The problem is, when I decided today to finished what I started the image is now deleted.

I can try and upload it back but for obvious reasons it would probably would be deleted all over again. Hopefully you would reconsider the image I uploaded so I can finish this one.

More power!

It has been clearly stated clearly creative common license under no derivative work . Well the work is not derivative at all .you can check from here:(http://code.google.com/p/google-summer-of-code/downloads/list?can=2&q=2013+logo&colspec=Filename+Summary+Uploaded+Size+DownloadCount) the file is color version of jpeg format.

The picture is of an open-source program conducted by google itself known as Google summer of code .The thing that might have confused you is that i uploaded the logo of 2013 previously it was of 2012 , so i just uploaded the recent one.

Thanks hope it clears the misunderstanding.

Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry is a Non-profit organization in bangladesh. Which is working for business development of Bangladesh. I am web developer of Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry. I have the logo and before use this logo I got permission to use this logo to wikipedia. There is no permission problem at all so I don't know why this logo had deleted from wikipedia. I am just a contributor in wikipedia & I love it very much. I get huge number of information using wikipedia. So I think Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry have to be in wikipedia and also with logo. One day this article will be helpful for all people who wanted to know about Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry. A logo is a identification of an organization that's all.

Thanks.

I request the undeletion and proper deletion discussion. Both the nominator and the admin didn't bother to even use a single full world; all they did was to link to a policy without explaining how it applies here. I requested such an explanation but nobody bothered to provide it. As such, I challenge that the linked policy was relevant at all (the nominator should clearly explain how is relevant, not just link some letter soup). As far as I am concern, the only response the nom and admins should receive here is en:WP:TROUT. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 13:05, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is a photo of a copyrighted poster. The poster is centered and takes up about 80% of the photo, so COM:DM can't be applied. The description placard at bottom left indicates the poster was drawn in 1980 by Marvel Comics artist John Tartaglione. The poster itself is marked "(c) 1980 Marvel Comics Group". The deletion per COM:DW was correct as this photo is a clear derivative work of a copyrighted poster. INeverCry 16:45, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

This picture, along with the Andres Bonifacio and Luis Taruc, and Lakan Dula pictures seem to be spread throughout the internet, and neither of them seem to have any copyright specifically placed on them, if they did, then fair use should cover it if Wikipedia is recognized as non-profit.

Especially the Lakan Dula painting shouldn't have any copyright placed on it, besides, there is another one of it available right here in Wikimedia commons.

In that case, if I want to reupload these files again, I need the CORRECT permissions then? Alright. --LakanBanwa (talk) 03:27, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
HOWEVER, Martin H., what if there are pictures like the Andres Bonifacio one, that cannot be tracked and are spread throughout the internet? As well as this picture of Luis Taruc, it cannot be traced. http://thephilippinesamodernhistory.blogspot.com/2012/05/huk-rebellion_24.html Can I be offered assistance or be pointed towards the right direction?--LakanBanwa (talk) 03:51, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Thats why I linked COM:PRP to avoid such assumptions. Point 5 there. Seeing a picture on the internet everywhere does not mean that it is free. --Martin H. (talk) 13:22, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
