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)

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 »

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)

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)

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.)

David Harvey's Reading Marx's Capital[edit]

Hi! Caught this on Wikisource and I noticed what might be a problem but I'm not sure. Since you're a Commons admin I figure you'd know better than me. The official web pages state that the course is CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0, which would be a problem for Wikimedia sites. But the Youtube pages are CC-BY 3.0. I guess that might constitute a re-licensing, although maybe not a deliberate one. Is it enough for Wikimedia sites though? Prosody (talk) 20:11, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi, yeah I saw that too. The YouTube license is a free license though. Legally you can't publish things under one license and than make it more restrictive later on. --Vera (talk) 20:26, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Photo of ballot in ballot-box[edit]

Hallo Vera, last night I have been pleased at your fresh taken photo File:EP 2014 ballot Netherlands .jpg and set 2 links in the de-Wikipedia (de:Mai 2014 and de:Europawahl in den Niederlanden 2014). But today in the morning I'm worried: Have you asked the "Wahlvorstand" at the polling station by taking your photo? They allowed the photo? If "yes" – I hope – please tell it in the description of your photo. (Ach wenn ich doch besser Englisch könnte! Ich hatte mich wirklich über das frisch aufgenommene Foto gefreut, doch möchte ich nicht, dass Du Probleme bekommen könntest, was mir erst nach ein paar Stunden Schlaf bewusst geworden ist: Zumindest in Deutschland sind Fotos im Wahllokal ja während der Wahl verboten (geheime Wahl!), es sei denn Du hast die Erlaubnis dazu. Vielleicht ist dies andernorts in Europa (in den Niederlanden) weniger streng geregelt? Wahlgeheimnis ist ja mit den Wahlrechtsgrundsätzen "Transparenz und Öffentlichkeit der Wahl" abzuwägen. Transparenz finde ich persönlich ja wichtiger, doch was sagt die Wahlordnung im Europawahlgesetz? Hab die WP-Links vorläufig wieder raus genommen – wenn meine Sorge unbegründet ist, dann können wir das Foto ja wieder einbinden! ich hoffe jetzt, Du hast meine Sorge besser verstanden, als ich es in der Schnelle auf Englisch hätte ausdrücken können). Have a sunny day, instead of my sorrows! --LudwigSebastianMicheler (talk) 14:40, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

as you can see, I haven't actually filled out the ballot yet in this picture. A fellow Wikipedian posted a picture of a notice reminding people about how no one could ever force you to publish a picture of your vote. But this isn't my vote, it's just the ballot.
