Copyright problem?

Hi ABF, what seems to be the problem with this image? I have clearly released it into the PD. I have had 3 other images deleted as well; my fix has been to upload to the English WP, where I have had no problems at all. Not very inclusive, but if Commons won't accept my images when WPEN will then I won't put them there. Freestyle-69 23:23, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Now there is no problem with it anymore, but it was not clear at this moment. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 08:14, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Update checkimages.py please

Hello, I've added a new function in checkimages.py and I have done some rewrite. Maybe I will make some changes also in the next days. So, please, every time you use the bot in this month make a svn-update first (then, I'll re-send you an advise for the big updates like this one). I've added the function -duplicates please use it ;-) Bye, Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 15:30, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Of course, but I will have to talk to you in IRC. abf /talk to me/ 18:31, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Hello ABF!

Hey ABF, nice to see you doing your great work! If their is anything I could help you with, then just contact me! Best regards --Kanonkas(talk) 18:51, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Hehe, thanks :) abf /talk to me/ 18:54, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

{{User:ABF/Warned}}

I have some concerns about your userspace template, {{User:ABF/Warned}}. First, you should be aware that userspace templates (except image credits) aren't meant to be used extensively in mainspace (e.g. image pages); if you believe it should be used there, make it a Template. Second, it's not reasonable to ask "PLEASE LEAVE THIS TAG IN THE IMAGE EVEN IF YOU KEEP THE IMAGE. IT'S FOR STATISTIC REASONS." It's an intimidating warning message, and there's absolutely no reason for it if the image is valid. Finally, the template doesn't appear to be based on any Commons policy and it has a hard-coded date.

These issues will need to be addressed to keep using it in mainspace. Superm401 - Talk 21:45, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

The template will only be used for three or four times. We discussed a second warning on the administrators noticeboard before and this template is helping me with the statistic of the success of the acrtion. abf /talk to me/ 06:47, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Do you mean that it is for a trial experiment, and will be discontinued soon? Superm401 - Talk 06:52, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Yes. If I see from the statistics the second warning helps it will be continued (without this template and after a new discussion), otherwhise it will be stopped. abf /talk to me/ 06:58, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Okay, that sounds very reasonable. Superm401 - Talk 07:00, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

From Dhatier

May be you can help me.
I made a mistake while uploading Adrienne Clarkson photo. I uploaded the one named Adrienne Clarkson.jpg (with one space), but discovered that there was another image with the same name.
So I uploaded the same photo under the name AdrienneClarkson.jpg without a space, with description, licence, and so on.
But I cannot remove the first version. Can you do that for me? You can answer me on my french discussion page: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discussion_Utilisateur:Dhatier Dhatier 01:27, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Help pliz :-)

Moin, I need help to keep clean my report :-( Indeed this report gain every moment a lot of new pictures! Can you help me deleting them? (they are all duplicates found in the new images). Thanks, --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 13:52, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Done. abf /talk to me/ 17:31, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Collard

Why did you block him? There was no purpose in doing so. Blocks are not punishment, and by blocking him again, doubling the time, you're basically punishing him. Majorly (talk) 10:36, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

I have to say I am inclined to agree with Majorly. Blocks really are to prevent disruption. It would seem preferable to engage with Collard (a hard working admin) to discuss the position?
If he continues to behave inappropriately (& his behaviour was inappropriate) then we need to take this to the community for discussion.
I really do prefer not to overturn other admins actions & I would ask you to consider our comments here. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 11:17, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Please see my further comments here. If you feel I was wrong I would appreciate it if you would take the matter to one of the admin boards to allow others their input. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 15:48, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

I blocked for abusage of sysop-rights. I only followed the policyes by doubeling the block. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 17:09, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
You have an advantage over me - I tend not to read policies, please point me to the section, thanks. What I do know is that blocks are not to be used as punishment but to prevent disruption. --Herby talk thyme 17:27, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
I cant point it out because its years ago i read it. But a freind of me who's steward now pointed it out to me. I will ask him. abf /talk to me/ 17:31, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Which steward? Very few stewards work on Commons --Herby talk thyme 17:41, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
AFAIK it was a meta-policy, so naming someone is not interesting. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 17:45, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
I did wonder. Of course only Commons policies apply here on Commons as I'm sure you know. Equally though I am not aware of that policy elsewhere on the Foundation (& certainly not on Meta) so I will investigate. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 18:20, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
The policy states nothing about blocking for abuse of admin rights. Of course, if he went on a delete spree you should, and find a steward to desysop. This was, I think, a misunderstanding. I have told you before, ABF, about not blocking way after the incident. What exactly were you trying to prevent by blocking him some seven hours later? Also, I see nothing in the policy about doubling the block. This kind of thing makes you just as bad as Collard, imo. Majorly (talk) 20:28, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Answer needed

I only want to know (take a look at my talk page). Best --Weissmann 08:24, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Removal of image from "Permian–Triassic extinction event"

One of the Wikipedia:Trifecta logos

Hi, I am annoyed about the removal of the Stampfli-Borel map from Permian–Triassic extinction event. I do not know how it came to be removed from Wikimedia Commons, whether it was by a bot or by a warm, breathing human being. If you were not personally involved in the deletion of the image, please do not take the following comments personally.

Either way, the deletion was a mistake, because whatever policy motivated the deletion makes it more difficult for editors to illustrate articles and these additional difficulties are not justified by objective considerations such as avoidance of copyright issues - they appear to be mere bureaucratic rules that provide no benefit to readers or editors of Wikipedia. In addition the upload process does not ask for a category nor provide any help in assigning a category. In fact the "upload" link on a Wikipedia page directs to a Wikipedia page upload page, not a Wikimedia upload page. Furthermore if one wants to upload to Wikimedia one has to get a separate account (yes, I've noticed there appear to be global accounts, but I have seen no announcment of this or advice on how to upgrade an existing account). This entire collection of obstacles and hidden traps is contrary to a current effort to simplify Wikipedia editing in order to attract new editors.

PS I notice this edit page has no one-click link for adding signatures. This is another instance of user-unfriendliness on the part of WikiMedia Commons.

Please reply on my Talk page.

Hi, this is the original image and does not make any duplicate except the one you deleted correctly. Therefore may I request for undeletion? Thank you! Baycrest(Talk) 16:28, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

✓ restored sorry. abf /talk to me/ 16:43, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Never mind :) Baycrest(Talk) 16:52, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I made a mistake... Can you help?

You were the first person to comment on my talk page haha, so I decided to ask you. I've been a member of the English Wikipedia for probably a month or two now, and I didn't know I was supposed to be uploading photos I've taken to the Commons.. I've taken maybe 25-30 pictures, but they're all over on the en part of the site. Is there any way to copy/move them over to the commons, so they can be used by everyone? --Dudemanfellabra 17:14, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, upload them here under the same name and tag the Image on en with {{subst:NC}}. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 17:17, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Omg, I have to upload all of them again? It takes me forever to upload one picture haha. My internet is wireless through AT&T, and for some reason, it doesn't like to upload things. I have to retry like 20 times to upload one picture, so uploading 25-30 would take the better part of an entire day. Is there not an easier way? --Dudemanfellabra 17:22, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
You can also bot them using m:Pywikipedia or the File Upload Bot of Magnus Manske. abf /talk to me/ 17:40, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Ah.. thanks for telling me about Magnus Manske's File Upload Bot.. The direct upload feature made it reeeeally easy by eliminating the need for me to upload from my computer; it does the transfer completely on the server. I just transferred from en 30 of the 38 images in Category:Meridian, Mississippi in about an hour haha. Once again, thanks a lot!--Dudemanfellabra 18:52, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Hello ABF, I'm Fernando. You've deleted most of the images i've uploaded to commons, and I just want to know why.

Sperre

Ich wollte nur heute Fotos hochladen. Das ging nicht. Ich muss die aber hochladen, damit das nicht umsonst geschossen wurde. Ich habe das nicht gemacht. Ich habe keinen PC. Bis November ist wirklich schlimm. Ich hätte heute mindestens 30 Fotos hochladen können, die von der Stadt Dresden sind. Dann wollte ich meinen Namen umändern lassen. Das geht hier aber auch nicht mehr und daher überlege ich, ob ich ein neues Konto eröffenen muss. Aber das ist dann wieder Puppenspiel.--The User 14:51, 14 May 2008 (UTC) Und was ich wkomisch finde ist, dass ich nur gesperrt werde, aber auf Kommunikation hier niemand aus ist.

Ich habe dich heute nicht gesperrt. Es wäre besser, wenn du die Frage auf deiner Benutzerdiskussionsseite beantworen würdest, dann siehst du, ob dich die ip-sperre zu Recht oder nicht getroffen hat.
Btw. ohne PC könntest du hier nicht schreiben... abf /talk to me/ 19:23, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

deprecated function in your monobook.js

Dear user, I noticed that you use the includePage function in your monobook.js page.

This function is now obsolete, as the importScript function was introduced with rev:35064 to the MediaWiki Javascript core library wikibits.js. It also keeps track of already imported files.

To allow us to remove includePage from Mediawiki:Common.js I'd kindly ask you to replace its use with importScript (same syntax!). Thanks! --Dschwen 17:03, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Deleting images

Hi, An image of mine was deleted as per protocol, I'm wondering if you can help me? How can I ensure that an image is correct and proper myself? A quick look at my page shows a couple dozen other images that might also have been deleted, at least they were all uploaded together, yet somehow only this one slipped through. Obviously, since I am making sure of the images myself, I hope to keep them on the server. So I don't want to leave them improperly uploaded to the system.  :) Robbiemuffin 12:37, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Reading COM:L might help you. If there are any more specifity questions come back and ask me :) abf /talk to me/ 17:10, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:Chernihiv_flag.jpg

You deleted this image. What you did is a pure vandalism no matter how well intention you where. This image is used in a hundreds of places in a number of wikipedias. If you are not capable of going into every one of them and fixing the pages to have new image - please stay way at all!

I do not care how often it is used. There is no source as User:Ahonc reported correctly. abf /talk to me/ 12:21, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
If you do not care about wikipedia, why are you here? Go do someting else that you care about. --Ilyaroz 12:39, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Ilyaroz, Commons' admins cruelly delete images with no license/source/permissions. They care about Commons at first.--Ahonc (talk) 13:20, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I care about wikipedia, so I deleted in accordeance to our policys e.g. COM:L, and they do not say "do not delete files who are uncompatibe to our licensing-policy if they are heavy in use!". abf /talk to me/ 12:42, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Ukrainian admins don't care about correct licensing, sources and FUR of images, but Commons admins care about this.--Ahonc (talk) 13:11, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I do not understand. It had the same licensing-policy as a new file with the same flag. Did User:Ahonc removed it to make you delete the image? He has this idea that all images has to be renamed to English name and be png. While I generally agree - the methods used are very distractive. BTW - User:Ahonc is no longer an administrator of the Ukrainian Wikipedia. --Ilyaroz 12:49, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
There is another flag of this region (however, some admins here don't like FOTW images).--Ahonc (talk) 13:15, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I restored the history (not the file) so you can take a loock at it. But why is ahonc no more sysop at uk:? I only know him as a good contributor. abf /talk to me/ 13:03, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
He was desysop because of edit war and personal attacks see comment 17:56, 30 October 2007--Yakudza 21:31, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
You are wrong. I was not desysop after this.--Ahonc (talk) 21:39, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
ABF, Because I deleted many images there :)--Ahonc (talk) 13:09, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Gnah! I hate de-sysoping goodies :S abf /talk to me/ 13:11, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I do not see any difference in licensing-policy with a new file with the same flag. All Ahonc wanted is to get read of this file as the png exists. If some one would really like to help wikipedia succeed - they would go and fix the articles. Right now what you do, Ahonc, does not help readers or writers, just exercise of power --Ilyaroz 13:21, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
The new (is it new?) file has a source, and anyone can check that it is flag of Chernihiv Oblast (but not i.e. Cherkasy Oblast) and copyright status of it.--Ahonc (talk) 13:24, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
ABF - let me explain it to you to remember for the next time. This is a flag of a territorial community in Ukraine it is covered by {{PD-UA-exempt}}. The ultimate source of the flag is the goverment of the particular subdivision of Ukraine. In this particular case it does not matter what site it came from - the do not have the rights on it --Ilyaroz 14:27, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Hm, but same sites take money for uploading images (for example, vector-images.com) and if you pay money, download it and then upload here, this image will be free. And nobody will be pay money to vector-images.com for downloading images because they may download images here. And vector-images lose a lot of money and bring an action against Wikimedia. And then ABF will convict of guilty and throw in jail...--Ahonc (talk) 14:51, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
For the Ukrainian coats of arms and flags they have no case - I am 100% sure. --Ilyaroz 15:41, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
OK. If you are sure, pay money and upload quality SVG images here, but then you'll need explain for admins why these images must not be deleted. :)--Ahonc (talk) 15:50, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Ahonc - I think we changed the subject - The deleted image was not from there. All you needed to do is to fix its description. Instead you tricked people into deleting the image . Why did you do that - because you did not like its name and that it is not in png. I do not like it eather but I know that deleting the image will ruin people work and create negative impression of Commons in Ukrainian wikipedia. You know that what happened already and this is why you are not an admin there anymore --Ilyaroz 16:22, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I stay with my deletion as per Ahoncs comments. If you still disagree go to COM:UDEL. abf /talk to me/ 19:24, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Request to announce Valued images on de.wikipedia

Hallo ABF!

I was wondering if you would help us announce the launch of the Valued images project on June 1, 2008 at 0:00 (UTC) on the German village pump, FPC talk and graphics lab pages? The announcement has been translated to German already by Dschwen, so it is mainly a cut'n'paste job. If you are not interested in the doing it or do not have the time, could you perhaps delegate the task to another de regular?

We have a thread at here for coodinating the announcements. Plese report back there here. I have also asked AngMoKio to do this yesterday, but this user does not seem to be online currently. I will leave a note at this users page telling that I have also contacted you.

Happy editing,
