Current requests[edit]

File:The Ultimate Warrior.jpg[edit]

The reason stated in a previous discussion was that there was suspicion of "Flickrwashing". The user who uploaded this to Flickr, DianesDigitals, has been a reliable source for photos in the past. You can see a list of photos that are from that account, many of which appear to be from the same wrestling event here. The user has uploaded many more photos from the same wrestling event that this picture was taken, including more featuring The Ultimate Warrior, which they chose not to make available for free use. Many of these are of poorer quality, but Warrior appears in the same attire, and it is at the same venue. It's far more likely that the websites which used this picture got it from this very source, otherwise it would be hard to explain how this user was able to take similar pictures themselves only to steal the one which they made available for free.LM2000 (talk) 21:02, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Exactly. Unless another source on the web has a better quality version of this picture or has all of these pictures in this particular Flickr set, I think it's safe to say that the Flickr uploader is the original. Starship.paint (talk) 05:51, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Bundesarchiv Bild 183-R98690, Hitler und Franco.jpg[edit]

Данный файл удален не правильно. Если его автор Генрих Гофман (а это так), то это изображение может свободно публиковаться, как и все его работы. --Kolchak1923 (talk) 20:55, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Thats not true. The works of this photographer are still copyrighted. We can only host the files that the copyright holder allowed to publish under a free license. You cant simply take unfree content from their website and claim that it is freely licensed. --Martin H. (talk) 11:20, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Undelete File:Heleenmees2.png[edit]

Epa has agreed with usage outside Wikipedia. So there is no objection for usage on Wikipedia. It needs to be classified as cc-by-sa-3.0 Bmwz3hm (talk) 20:50, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Related to Ticket:2014040910020553 and Commons:Deletion requests/File:Heleenmees2.png. Hi, It seems that the permission received is not sufficient. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:32, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Instead of asking for undeletion you could also awnser the question which the OTRS-agent asked you of course. You never responded to the email he send to sort this out. Natuur12 (talk) 08:14, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

 Not done per above. This needs to be resolved via COM:OTRS -FASTILY 01:30, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Ledavsko - blejski labodi.jpg[edit]

Reason for deletion: Out of scope. But this picture was used in SL:WP as an example while voting for another featured photo. Therefore it is well in scope. Nominator frequently nominates pictures of a deceased Slovene Wikipedian Lanfra and removes notification messages from his talk page; that's why DRs like this remain uncontested. ℳ₪Zaplotnikcontribs 16:17, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

If it is used in a 2006 discussion to illustrate a point then it realy is time now to delete it. The discussion Commons:Deletion requests/File:Ledavsko - blejski labodi.jpg says all: Its a montage of two other files (with failure to credit the authors), its not realistic, not usefull for other purporse, we must not host it perpetually. --Martin H. (talk) 17:45, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
I was only objecting the deletion reason. If it is used in one wikiproject in any way (maybe to illustrate a point in discussion or to be used in some user's user space) it falls within Commons' scope. Part of that discussion page now lacks context because of the deletion of this photo. I hope you are not suggesting we should delete that discussion page as well because is pretty useless after 8 years? And is it really in the benefit of the project to delete 8 year old photos of now-deceased contributors? ℳ₪Zaplotnikcontribs 18:34, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Cosmos at cipo 1980.jpg[edit]

Deleted due to URAA issue, it could be restored per M:Legal and Community Advocacy/Wikimedia Server Location and Free Knowledge

 Not done Unless it can be demonstrated to be PD in the US as of the URAA date, then it cannot be hosted on Commons. russavia (talk) 22:41, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment My request was based on the restoration of files such as this (still copyrighted in the US so the photo was taken in 1976). I still see contradictory p.o.v. among the administrators. This debate: Commons:Massive restoration of deleted images by the URAA makes me doubt even more about a definitive position from Commons. - Fma12 (talk) 22:58, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
We can't take a vote to ignore a law because we don't like it which is what Commons:Massive restoration of deleted images by the URAA was. If the WMF does not like the law they need to work to change it, perhaps by having the US adobt the rule of shorter term, but ignoring it is not an valid way forward. The image you linked to should have been deleted. LGA talkedits 23:12, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
I agree with your position LGA; in fact, I had nominated a lot of files for deletion due to URAA problems but all the efforts done were in vain so the WFM decided to ignore the law. No further comments from me, I wish all the admin had a similar opinion than you. Regards, - Fma12 (talk) 23:21, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
