Re:Comment on deletion requests[edit]

Hello,

About you message at User talk:Amada44#Comment on Deletion requests:

Amada44's statement is accurate. There's nothing to fix there. That statement merely relayed the IDF twitter message, which says "CC-by" and links to the IDF flickr account. It is well-know that the CC-by license available to flickr accounts was, and still is, version 2.0. Thus, by writing "CC-by-2.0", Amada44 merely specified the obvious "2.0".

You might wonder if the IDF twitter message (which said "CC-by") accurately reflected the license that was actually displayed on the IDF flickr account at the same time, or if the IDF flickr account displayed a different license. But that would be a question about the consistency between the information on the IDF twitter message and whatever information was displayed on the IDF flickr account. That has nothing to do with the accuracy of Amada44's statement (CC-by 2.0) relatively to the IDF twitter message (CC-by). Another aspect of the same question would be to ask if User:Matanya's tagging of the images with CC-by-sa 2.0 tags accurately reflects the license that was displayed on the IDF flickr account between September 2011 and December 2011, or if the license on the IDF flickr account was a CC-by 2.0 license, as expected from the IDF twitter message. (It is already obvious that User:Matanya's tagging of the images with CC-by-sa 2.0 is not consistent with the information stated in the IDF twitter message.)

That matter of CC-by vs CC-by-sa seems relatively trivial when compared with the much bigger problem that you correctly raised in a deletion request today about those files, i.e. the fact that User:Matanya's tagging of the images with CC-by-sa 2.0 tags is not consistent with the license CC-by-nc-sa, which he said was the license offered on the IDF flickr account at the time of the uploads to Commons (2012), nor with the license CC-by-nc 2.0, which is the license that is actually displayed today on the IDF flickr account.
