Nelly Bly died in 1922, any photo of her will predate 1923 --Vera (talk) 14:24, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi Vera. To be sure that photo is PD in the US, we need the first publication date, not only the creation date. Thank you--Trixt (talk) 14:30, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
She wrote a best selling book about her 6 months in Mexico before the end of the century. Do you really think this picture wasn't published before her death? --Vera (talk) 14:33, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
It doesn't matter what I believe. It's important when it was first published and country of origin.--Trixt (talk) 15:36, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
The author is unknown, isn't threre an orphan work act in the US like we have in the EU?
I don't think so (take a look at COM:TAG#United States). However, keep in mind that on the EXIF dates there is Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS.--Trixt (talk) 16:23, 9 October 2011 (UTC) P.S image is located here: http://www.corbisimages.com/stock-photo/rights-managed/U927198BACME/nellie-bly?popup=1
Battman started the database of images Corbis took over. That does not give them the copyright. corporations are only people when it comes to political donations. --Vera (talk) 16:34, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

found a fitting license --Vera (talk) 16:58, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

If you are sure that this is the correct copyright status (the image was never published before 2003? Mmhh...), please remove the {{No permission since}} tag. Thank you in advance--Trixt (talk) 09:47, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
aye, didn't see that part. But I don't have a record of it being published :S --Vera (talk) 09:49, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Note of Thanks[edit]

I'm not inclined to try to figure out how to place my response in the same section as the appearance of my photos on this page, so I will just say that I gratefully appreciate what I assume was your nomination of my photos for promotion to 'Quality Image.' For the record, the Lenawee Courthouse photo had a minor edit from a fellow Wikimedian which removed a partial lampost. I approve of this change and it represents a technique I myself have used.

Hi, I am also the wikipedian who edited the lamppost out of that picture. I also edited the st. Josheph church, which is still awaithing further judgement here--Vera (talk) 15:06, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Institution:IIG[edit]

I noticed that you created Institution:IIG. If this is intended to be used to indicate that the IIG is the author of a file, it should actually be a creator template with the "type" paramater set to "corporation" (even if it is non-profit, it is just for categorization and is probably provisional). The whole thing may sound a bit messy, as the same institution can both create and host document, but creator template can be used to machine-identify authors and institutions to machine-identify location of physical documents. Hopefully, we will come up with a better system some day. -Zolo (talk) 09:54, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Een cadeau voor onze nieuwe adminstrator van je collega's

1Veertje, gefeliciteerd! Je hebt nu administratorrechten op Commons. Neem een moment om Commons:Administrators te lezen en plaats gerelateerde pagina's op je volglijst (vooral Commons:Administrators' noticeboard en Commons:Deletion requests), voor je in verwijderen, beveiligen, blokkeren of wijzigen in beveiligde pagina's duikt. De meerderheid van de acties van administratoren kunnen ongedaan worden gemaakt door andere administratoren, behalve het samenvoegen van bewerkingsgeschiedenissen, die dus met bijzondere zorg behandeld moeten worden.

Neem eens een kijkje op het IRC-kanaal: #wikimedia-commons op irc.freenode.net.

Zie de Moderatorenhandleiding (Engels). En check of voeg je zelf toe aan List of administrators en de gerelateerde lijsten op taal en datum.

Hi Vera, please do not simply add {{speedy}} {{copyvio}}, as copyvio is already a speedy-tag, so speedy+copyvio is redundant; but also do not simply add copyvio, but give hint or better a link that shows why you think that a file is a copyvio. Thanks. --Túrelio (talk) 07:09, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Please provide rationals that led to your decision (examples: [3]; [4]). Please sign such comments. Why did you not wait 7 days to close those DRs? Thank you in advance for helping. Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 22:38, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

files of Helmut Diez[edit]

Hi 1Veertje, there is no need to delete the files that are used in the article about Helmut Diez (Category:Helmut Diez). He himself wanted those pictures to be used here freely and he is the owner of the copy right. So there is no problem as far as his rights are conerned. Sincerely --Hans-Jürgen Hübner (talk) 16:19, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Hans, it is one thing to be ok with the images being used on Wikipedia, it is another to make them public. Is Helmut aware that the current license used for the images grants third parties permission to use them, even on a commercial basis? Please take a look at Com:OTRS and arrange for his permission to be send trough there. --Vera (talk) 17:48, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your hints. I'll try to send his permission through there, probably next week. --Hans-Jürgen Hübner (talk) 14:47, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
Hi again, I've redirected an email sent by Mr. Diez to the mentioned address. Mr. Diez is aware that the current license used for the images grants permission to use them to anybody, even for commercial purposes. Hope that's enough. --Hans-Jürgen Hübner (talk) 10:58, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Rameshng[edit]

looks like an attack[edit]

For me, it looks like targetted attacks. Are you an admin who is try to help or has an intention to track down everything which you seems be dont like? Why dont you help with a way of saving Files? I can see some of the images got deleted even without notifying me in the Talk page.--Rameshng (talk) 06:23, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

It's not an attack, you invited me to go back through your history of files. You did get notified of the deletion of files that were copyright violations. Not every copyright violation gets a discussion because they are simply that obvious. Most of the now deleted work viol copyright law by being derivative work. I explained every speedy deletion on your talk page. As you can see I went through the trouble of pixalating the portrait that was prominent in the car picture. --Vera (talk) 07:50, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

speedy deletion[edit]

Hi Vera, don't worry, I warned the uploader that I had asked for speedy deletion of these images, via Wikipedia in French. Cordially, Alchemica (talk) 14:27, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

BB-deletion[edit]

The picures nominated for deletion where printscreens. Just part of the big brother homepage where used - like a quotation.--Ezzex (talk) 18:30, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

photographs and text, by default, are protected by copyright. There is such a thing as a fair use policy, but fair use isn't allowed on Wikimedia Commons. Please take a look at Commons:Image casebook to learn what kind of images are welcome and which are not. --Vera (talk) 18:36, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
Its idiotic to delete a picture that is just a small scale version. of the original. How can we get any picture from tv, film etc. if we should wait 70 years after the death of a copyrightholder? - Early silent film era?? This is not satisfying at all.--Ezzex (talk) 00:22, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Some of them are just small Facsimiles.--Ezzex (talk) 00:32, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, our hands are bound tight when it comes to copyright. But there is an idealism to sticking to it: by creating a database of images that are free of copyright we are creating an invaluable database of free teaching material. If you don't like this, there is always wikia. Articles on tv and film can be illustrated often by unofficial photographs fans have made. If you search flickr.com for photo's that have an Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license you might find something. You could also find amateur pictures on Flickr and request the author to release his/her copyright (be polite). I'm highly doubtful that the photographs of Paula Bracht amd Synnøve Skarbø are your own work. Especially the latter one looks like a screenshot. Please accapt that pictures can't be released from their rights unless you've made them yourself. Claiming the works of others as your own is a vile infringement of the copyright of the maker since it doesn't even give them any credit. --Vera (talk) 07:55, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I haven't deleted the photo, I have nominated it for deletion. As you can see here, the photo can be found outside of commons. Now, you also claimed that the photograph of Audrey Hepburn is your own work, making your other uploads suspicious. I will look into it further --Vera (talk) 21:09, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok for Audrey (but please read below). For WMA I'm very surprised, really! I'm the author. I was in Arena from the beginning, and I take this picture with my bb. Ciao Kodaly (talk) 21:19, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I was wrong to indicate the copyright, but now it's expired or not? In many other similar photos (pre 1964) there is this template. Can you check? Thanks Kodaly (talk) 21:11, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

It has been published twice: Once under CC-NC-ND in book form, and then on the website under CC-BY-SA. The same graph can be retrieved on the website, making it acceptable for Commons. --Vera (talk) 18:30, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
I've replaced it with the exact version that can be found on the website. --Vera (talk) 18:47, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Re Machen book image[edit]

With regard to the message you left on my talk page, I admit that I don't understand "a stylised picture of a 3D artform is still protected". A book is a "3D artform"? Would replacing the image with a "flat" image of the book's cover, such as the second one here solve the problem? Deor (talk) 07:28, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that one would be OK. The trouble with 3D objects is that there is some level of artistic skill involved in photographing them, making the photograph a work that has copyright. --Vera (talk) 08:14, 5 April 2012 (UTC) The first one would be OK too btw. --Vera (talk) 08:16, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you again, but I'm pretty much a neophyte at this. I'd like to replace the current image with the one on this page (ignore the date of 1923 in the heading; that's the date of the U.S. Knopf edition, not the edition pictured). All the descriptive and licensing information, categories, etc., would be the same as those at the current File:House of Souls 1906.jpg, except for the link to the source. What's the best way to go about it? Should I upload the new image as a separate file with a different name and just let the old one be deleted, or is there a way to edit the new image into the current file page to replace the image now there? Deor (talk) 13:30, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
It's good to ask questions. On the file page, when you scroll down, you can see a link to "upload new version". If you click on edit at the top of the page you can change the source information. The website it came from isn't all that relevant in this case. Maybe it's better to mention the publisher. After that I'll delete the old version from the version log with my admin powers. --Vera (talk) 14:37, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

The behavior of the User:Fry1989[edit]

Hello, I am concerned about the behavior of User:Fry1989. The fact that he tries not to let others upload new versions of its files. But this time I uploaded a new version of the File:Flag-map of Georgia.svg. This version is better that the map of Georgia is much better and the colors of the flag in the description. But Fry1989 uploaded the previous version (which is the author of it), in which a map of Georgia is bad, and the colors are not as in the description of the flag. He explained to boot a previous version of that card is worse than his version of the flag and the colors are not needed only in my head. Then again, I uploaded his version, and the next day, he loaded his own. And it was until April 4 (today), because today he loads his version has not written anything. The same thing happened with the file File:Switzerland EU.svg, where he also uploaded his version without explanation. Please, help.

Sincerely, D5A (talk) 13:28, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

I've notified him that edit warring isn't appreciated. Please take a look at the instructions yourself. --Vera (talk) 15:16, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Question: what template did you use? this is a strange combination of links to en.wp and Commons pages. Rd232 (talk) 15:28, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
I tried finding the Commons template for edit warring, but couldn't find it. I copied the text from the EN wiki template. Is there a Commons template? --Vera (talk) 15:31, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Commons:Message templates lists those templates. There doesn't seem to be one for edit warring! I will make one, as it should be adapted for Commons, and translated. Rd232 (talk) 15:40, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
I'll translate it into Dutch :) --Vera (talk) 15:45, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Cool. Here it is: {{dont editwar}}. Maybe hold off on translation though - I've posted at Commons:Village_pump#Template:dont_editwar for comments, and it might get tweaked. Rd232 (talk) 16:21, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
OK--Vera (talk) 16:21, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the warning party Fry. I want to tell / ask two things:

1. Since my version (at least in the flag-map of Georgia), better than the version of Fry, can I upload my version of the files / file? 2. Know it is important or not, but I want to tell you that Fry deleted your alert.

Sincerely, D5A (talk) 14:28, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Excuse me, do you see this message? D5A (talk) 14:45, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I wrote on his page again, but than removed it shortly after. It might be better to ask the Commons:Disputes noticeboard for help. I've only been an administrator for less than a month and don't feel up for the task. At first I was confused about why you had contacted me specifically, but than remembered that I'm at the top of the list of administrators since I'm the only one that has a username that starts out with a number. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, I mostly deal with copyright issues. --Vera (talk) 14:50, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. D5A (talk) 14:55, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

???[edit]

Hello!

Your accusation is not true! I have never done that. Please apologize for it. --High Contrast (talk) 23:38, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

If you disagree with a speedy delete it should be converted to a DR and explain why on its talk page. -.- --Vera (talk) 23:42, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Please look closer: you have warned me with an automatic message with the text: "Please do not remove deletion request tags from images before an administrator has closed the debate". I have never done that. Please apologize for this incorrect accusation. --High Contrast (talk) 23:44, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
YOU are hiding every form of criticism I post on your talk page. YOU are not taking me serious. --Vera (talk) 23:46, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
You have never posted any criticism on my talk page - just automatic message that were partly incorrect. And no, I do take incorrect accusations serious but obviously you don't. --High Contrast (talk) 23:51, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
