Christmas card[edit]

Hi Vera, I just noticed there's something wrong with User:1Veertje/xmas2012. It says "no fallback page found for autotranslate" rather than showing the image. I hope there's a quick fix for this problem. Take care. INeverCry 23:11, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi INeverCry, yes I'm either bad at implementing multilingual templates, or something changed recently. I was mentioned here recently in relation to the same error message showing up in a template I made for the legend to a large data project Harvard MIT had. Let's see if they've figured out what's up with it. --Vera (talk) 20:28, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
It's showing again, so someone fixed it. It was ok up until a few weeks ago, so I don't see how you could've been at fault. Someone else had to have changed a component. Now I've got to make one of my own for this year. But I'll procrastinate for atleast few more days... INeverCry 21:00, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Category:Buildings in Menaldumadeel[edit]

Hoi Vera, zou je als je een categorie hernoemt de nieuwe naam bij de verwijdering willen melden? Dat maakt herstellen van links een stuk gemakkelijker. Alvast bedankt, Multichill (talk) 15:01, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

like this?--Vera (talk) 16:17, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
En kun je bij het hernoemen dit ook op Wikidata aanpassen (of als het nog ontbreekt: toevoegen). Dank! :-) Romaine (talk) 16:18, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Had ik al gedaan. --Vera (talk) 16:20, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Hi, as you can see in the {{Welcome}} template, if you want to speedily delete your own files by adding the {{speedy|reason for deletion}} tag. --Vera (talk) 12:22, 3 February 2014 (UTC)



Hoi Vera, tijdens de Kunst & Feminisme edit-a-thon werd er gesproken over de CC logo (het is "mannelijk") en ik dacht misschien is het leuk om het een rokje te geven en roze te kleuren en dat te gebruiken als logo voor een Gendergap project, zowel hier op commons als voor op Wikipedia. Wat denk je? Jane023 (talk) 11:12, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

File:3d lego terracotta army.jpg[edit]

Hi Vera, Question regarding File:3d lego terracotta army.jpg I got this message that you marked the above file as a possible copyright violation and also has been deleted. I am the one who made this picture. The artist of this artwork also gave me permission to use the image for wiki and other. Could you please restore the deletion of the image. Or let me know the reason why you think this picture should be deleted? Dufois.

I recognized the picture as one that has been around the internet and back again. You don't have a long history of contributing to Commons, so this raised suspicion. I found this Daily mail article where the exact same picture is credited to Carters News Agency. :News agencies ought to know what copyright is, the lay person contributing to the Wikimedia projects often has a hard time when they start of getting up to speed.
As a side node, the artist doesn't have to give permission for the use of the image since the US has something called Freedom of Panorama, it's the copyright of the photographer that we are concerned with here. I would like to note that we don't accept images that have only been cleared for use within the Wikimedia projects. Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia, meaning that everyone is free to reproduce sections or the whole of the works that we've gathered, with only the condition that the various authors are credited for their work and that derivatives have the same sort of free license. (Free as in speech, not as in beer). In the future, please post comments on talk pages at the bottom of a page and sign them using ~~~~.--Vera (talk) 12:17, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Please change my name from gundu to gunduu because this name is already exists on wikipedia. So i registered wikipedia as gunduu please merge or rename as gunduu--Gundu (talk) 09:33, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

copyright infringement on images from pizza boxes?[edit]

Hi. I understand your point but these were just photos of pizza boxes without any noticeable marks, certainly no copyright or attribution on them. I hardly can imagine that WikiMedia will get in trouble for putting them online. I don't see why you removed these and allow for example Image:French_Domino's_Pizza_box.JPG, which displays prominently a logo. Thanks. Miguel Andrade (talk) 12:27, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Do you actually remember what your photo's look like? Because they were everything but simple markings. Those boxes had full color graphics on them, a pure example of copyrighted packaging if there ever was one. You don't need to have a signature on copyrighted works in order to get copyright protection. We are a database of freely licensed images, we don't wait around for law suits to happen, the aim is to stay clear of even too gray areas. These boxes were clearly copyrighted and didn't even approach the grey. The existence of other copyright violations doesn't make others OK. - 12:39, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
Understood! Thanks! Miguel Andrade (talk) 14:26, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of files without discussion ![edit]


Is there a way to discuss about this File Deletion ?

I tried to give some information to justify to cancel your deletion request, but got no answer, and even worse : files are now deleted by another user !

I am really disapointed, and feeling just helpless and alone in a humanless Kafkaian world of Wikimedia Commons... Can you help me ? Thanks.

File:Aaron Goodrich, Minnesota Supreme Court.gif[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg File:Aaron Goodrich, Minnesota Supreme Court.gif has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

Trlkly (talk) 23:20, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

So what's the deal here? The {{PNG}} tag specifically says to use the {{supersededPNG}} tag, and the {{supersededPNG}} tag specifically states that files that use that tag cannot be automatically deleted, and must go through the traditional deletion process. Yet, you, an admin, are telling me just to mark it as a duplicate.
I was under the impression that the {{duplicate}} tag only applied to images of the same filetype. I remember there being a big fight over whether GIFs could be deleted once a PNG version became available. The consensus was that each image had to be handled on a case by case basis. If things have changed, I think the text of {{supersededPNG}} needs to be updated. Trlkly (talk) 00:09, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't know exactly. But I think a DR in this case is a bit too much drama. I might have to look into this. --Vera (talk) 00:12, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Please notify me on my talk page if you find out anything. I don't like watching people's talk pages, as I also get updates from other sections. I do hope things have changed, because that decision was silly, and only based on SVG images.--Trlkly (talk) 00:31, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:De Meidoorn, Rotterdam (1).JPG. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

No required license templates were detected at this file page. Please correct it, or if you have any questions please contact me on my talk page. Yours sincerely, Jarekt (talk) 12:48, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
