The user asked me to nominate two pictures for FP. His request is written in Persian using Fingilish. AMERICOPHILE

Copyright infringement[edit]

Well, Razghandi, or Americophile, whichever name you want to use. I saw your "copyright infringement" complaint on Mmxx's talk page and disagree with you. Really, copyright shouldn't exist. Have a look at this page too: http://questioncopyright.org/promise Also, have a look at the Undeletion requests page. My topic is "Undeletion of Multiple Files". I hope you look at it as soon as possible and leave your comments. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AMNeSiaaiSeNMA (talk • contribs) 08:11, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

File:Pars Khodro PK.JPG[edit]

Please do not remove categories unless the image does not really belong to that category. Vehicles in Tehran are very different from vehicles in Rio or Caracas or Chicago. They are part of personality and character of the city. Pars Khodro P.K., based on first generation Renault 5. The P.K. was a car made by Pars Khodro between 2000 and 2005 using the body of the Renault 5 and the engine of a Kia Pride car. So you can not find this vehicle in Paris. Tehran is relevant here. Each image should go into as many appropriate categories as possible. If the category is very general as in this case do not go by removing the category. Please move to appropriate sub-cat. If it does not exist create it yourself. There is already a category names transport in Tehran, you can move the image there. You can also create a sub category named Vehicles in Tehran. You should add Vehicles in Iran and Tehran as parent categories. Location information is very important. This is how commons work. Always be polite. Happy editing. --Nevit Dilmen (talk) 08:42, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your advice. I will add sub categories when removing general ones from now on. AMERICOPHILE 10:09, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

FoP issues[edit]

Thanks for your explanation. :) BUT, before nominating any mine picture for deletion I advice you to slow down and contact me because of two reasons: deleting my photos may ruin some of my great article about your country at Croatian Wikipedia (some 800-900!), and because I'm in position to find any artist and ask them for permission to use photos of their artworks (I'm sure that absolutely everybody will approve my request). All I need is TIME. --Orijentolog (talk) 20:56, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome.
OK, no problem. That's really great. I will put them on OTRS from now on, if I find any images of yours that has a FOP problem.
And a warm "Thank you" on behalf of all Iranians for writing articles about Iran on Croatian Wikipedia. Regards AMERICOPHILE 04:30, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
Well, you may take a look just at size of some articles which I've made - from ancient Median and Persian Empire to modern Iran, from ancient cities like Persepolis to modern capital Teheran, from ancient rulers like Cyrus to current president Ahmadinejad, and including many other themes like Iranian Kurds or even Economy - those Croatian articles aren't just larger then their English or Persian counterparts but in many cases larger then both of them combined. You'll also notice that in there is no red links in most of ancient articles but only blue one, which implies that hundreds articles exist about Iranian rulers, satraps, places and various things. I know that Croatian Wiki isn't so popular like English version, but at least 20 million Croats, Bosnians and Serbs can read it (we have very similar languages). Stay in touch, bedrud! :) --Orijentolog (talk) 02:37, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Photo request: Tehran trolleybus[edit]

Have you taken any photos of Tehran's trolleybus (اتوبوس_برقی) system? In case you don't know it, the small network starts at Imam Hossein Square and (at or near) Imam Hossein Metro Station, and I added some information about it to the Tehran page of Wikipedia 10 months ago, using two British sources (but I have never visited Iran). It is also mentioned in the trolleybus article on English Wikipedia, and it has its own article on German Wikipedia. Currently, Commons has only one photo of it, and it is not very good (because the trolley poles are difficult to see). There are more than 300 trolleybus systems currently in operation in the world, but Tehran's trolleybus system is the only one anywhere in the Middle East (however, a small new system is under construction in Riyadh); see List of trolleybus systems if you are curious. You probably have no interest in buses/trolleybuses, but if you have a convenient opportunity to take a few photos of the Tehran trolleybuses (and upload them), I would be grateful. This is not urgent. Steve Morgan (talk) 21:04, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Sure, I will take some photos and upload them on Commons and leave a message on you talk page when the photos are ready. I searched the web a little and found out that there is another small line between Shush and Rah Ahan that is intended to be connected to Imam Hossein-Khorasan line. Both of them are parts of a longer line (Imam Hossein to Rah Ahan). Feel free to ask any other photo requests. Regards AMERICOPHILE 05:03, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! According to a news report in the July-August 2011 issue of Trolleybus Magazine (a British magazine), the route section from Meydan-e-Shush "to the railway station at Meydan-e-Rah-Ahan" opened on 13 March 2010 (as an extension beyond Shush), so the route section to Rah Ahan is the newest part of the Tehran trolleybus system.

Trolleybus photos were used at the Russian-based electric transport site http://transphoto.ru/. Since trolleybuses in question do come from Eastern Europe, and similar vehicles are used throughout the former USSR, these photos would be of great interest. Many thanks.

Well, I have more if you like: Read Help:RotateLink (to understand what it does, first) and then click the blue "Translate the gadget" button on the upper right corner to submit a translation for the rotate gadget. I hope it will look correct (since fa is RTL - sorry, always a bit difficult). Thanks! --Saibo (Δ) 21:02, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
I did the translation. As it was mentioned on Help:RotateLink, I was not aware of lossy Windows JPEG rotations and some of my uploads are in lower size and quality than they actually used to be. I still have the original images in my computer. Do you think it is better to re-upload them and make a rotation request using the RotateLink gadget? AMERICOPHILE 17:34, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
Great! :-) Well, not all Windows programs do lossy rotations - but many. For windows I recommend the free (no price but not open source) Xnview (which does lossless transformations if you select the correct button from the toolbar).
Yes, you could just upload the images directly out of your camera by using the function "upload a new file version" on each file page and then -if it displays wrong- request rotatebot. But wait some weeks - as you may have read the backlog is quite big currently. Wait time normally should be below 6 hours... Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 23:15, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Category:Society of Iran[edit]

Hello, Americophile! I've been working a lot on categories of countries both here at Commons and at the English-language Wikipedia. In particular here, categories of countries have been overpopulated, so I moved a lot of categories around to about 20 for each country. One of the criteria was to place "Society of X" as one of the main categories, and put there "People of X" and "Culture of X". The reasoning is: particular people are part of the society of certain countries, so "People of X" must be a subcat of "Society of X"; and the culture is part of the society, so "Culture of X" must be a subcat of "Society of X".

I often think as an enginner, so I think these categories as sets and subsets. In this case, "Michael Jordan" is a subset of "People of the US", which is a subset of "Society of the US". The same way, "French anime" is a subset of "Culture of France", whihc is a subset of "Society of X".

If you thinks the sets and categories should be different, explain my your views, and let's find a solution. See you! --NaBUru38 (talk) 19:10, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your hard work in category namespace. As you can see Category:Iran is a category in good standing. This main category has no images and just 20 subcategories. I usually keep an eye on it and have lots of its subcategories in my watchlist. I have no objection if you want to harmonize all the categories in Category:Society by country by please note that you need a community consensus about this major change. I mean that the categories of Category:Society of Iran, Category:Society of Germany, Category:Society of France , Category:Society of the United States, and Category:Society of the United Kingdom must be identical, not different. Thanks for all of your contribution. Regards from Iran. AMERICOPHILE 07:02, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Soroush90gh[edit]

would you plz explain why my uploaded files must be deleted? I didn't understand your reason because I'm just a freshman here. Soroush90gh (talk) 17:44, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Soroush, Welcome to the Wikimedia Commons. Commons is a repository of free images and does not accept fair use. This image is a logo of Imam Khomeini University that may meet the threshold of originality, so it cannot be hosted on Commons. This image is the entrance gate of Imam Khomeini University and unfortunately there is no freedom of panorama exception in the Iranian copyright law, so it cannot be hosted here. The problem of the logo can be solved by uploading it locally on Persian or English Wikipedia (fair use is accepted on both of them) but the problem of the entrance gate cannot be solved until Parliament of Iran pass a new provision about FOP in Iran. Feel free to ask any other questions and if you prefer to use Persian, don't hesitate to ask in Persian. I will respond in the same language that you use. AMERICOPHILE 18:26, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Dear brother I think about Entrance pic you are right but about logo I'm sure that usage of it is free maybe my selected license is not correct. thank you because of your attentions. Soroush90gh (talk) 20:09, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Just simple logos (e.g. File:Googlelogo.png on Commons) can be uploaded on Commons. Complicated and creative logos cannot be uploaded here, though they can be uploaded locally (e.g. w:File:University of Tehran logo.svg on English Wikipedia). AMERICOPHILE 20:24, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Removal of filemover right[edit]

Dear Americophile. I just removed the filemover right of your account, because you renamed lots of files without following the policy (COM:RENAME). There was absolutely no need to rename File:Colombia - Risaralda - Mistrató.svg to File:Colombia - Risaralda - Mistrato.svg (the only change is the letter "ó"). These weren't obvious errors or any of the other criteria. Furthermore you also changed English names of pages about cities to a Persian title. Of course this is a multilingual project and English is not the main language, but these articles already existed and therefore there was no need to change the name of the page (instead you could've create a redirect). Please use {{rename}} for a while and of course you could always request it again on COM:RFR. Kind regards, Trijnstel (talk) 17:54, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

As I had explained here in detail, at first I declined those rename requests because Commons is an international and multilingual project and there is no reason to prefer English to other languages but after a few moments I noticed that the requests were made by the uploader of the files (Criterion #1) and I fulfilled them (I also mentioned this issue in edit summaries). And about those galleries, as mentioned here, "galleries should be named in language most associated with the subject" and I moved all of the galleries relating to Iran to Persian titles (Persian is the official language of Iran). If I were you, I would ask a user for an explanation and then wait for his response and finally take any action. Anyway I'm not interested in moving files anymore. Thanks for removing this great privilege. AMERICOPHILE 18:21, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Americophile[edit]

You forget some things, don't you? It doesn't matter but check your email (please). The last email is more important than others. kind Regards. لئونیداس (talk) 22:34, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Renamed files[edit]

Hi Americophile !

I requested the renaming of these files because I realized that in many languages ​​keyboards do not have accents or other Spanish keyboard characters. Not that I'm being given more importance to English. Thanks for your attention. Shadowxfox (talk) 23:42, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Shadowxfox, Users usually do not type the file names, but instead select it and then copy&pasted it on the appropriate article. Furthermore, you can add a description in English to file description pages. Regards. AMERICOPHILE 07:19, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Making Persian versions of English maps[edit]

Hi Americophile! Here is how we can make Persian versions of File:Moderniranianlanguagesmap.jpg and File:Iran Air 655 Strait of hormuz 80.jpg 1. For each image, make a list of which English words correspond to which Persian words 2. The request can be posted in the Commons:Graphic Lab/Map workshop. Another person will digitally edit in the Persian words Would you be interested in listing the English to Persian words? WhisperToMe (talk) 06:58, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi WhisperToMe. Sorry for the delay, I was a little busy in my real life!
Sure, I will list the English to Persian words and make a request in the map workshop. AMERICOPHILE 05:19, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
I made a request about File:Iran Air 655 Strait of hormuz 80.jpg here. I think that I can do File:Moderniranianlanguagesmap.jpg myself. Just give me some time to have a look at GIMP tutorial. let me see what I can do! AMERICOPHILE 08:36, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
Alrighty - thanks :) WhisperToMe (talk) 04:31, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

sir[edit]

آقای محترم این حرفها را از کجا ساخته ای اصلا آیا تا حالا در ایران را برای استفاده از تصویر در مجلات معتبر (نه غیر اسلامی و پورنو) در ایران جریمه کرده اند یک مورد مثال بزن.) آقای محترم دهها مقاله من در وب سایتها حتی بدون تغییر یک کلمه فقط لت حذف نام نوبسنده در روزنامه ها چاپ شده بعد شما کار گرافیکی خلیج فارس را که من از وبلاگ عمومی گرفته ام را حذف کرده ای تحت قانون پاناراما؟ ایران را با آمریکا اشتباه گرفتی رفیق آمریکو فیل image can be lack of freedom of panorama in Iran.!!! The hotel is built in 1999 and is not considered an old one. AMERICOPHILE 08:59, 16 February 2012 (UTC) dear sir you do not know Iranian law.this law have been vanished after the Iranian revolution. Iran have no law on the copy right. Iranian law on copy right is only applicable in some few cases in film maker and private life of persons there is no copy right even copy of the articles and books in Iran is not protected.there is no any law in Iran on the freedom of panorama. you can ask Iranian lawyer.there is no such a freedom of panorama in Iran.you can ask. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maahmaah (talk • contribs) 23 February 2012‎ (UTC)

کاربر گرامی؛ ایران قانون حق تکثیر دارد و آنگونه که شما فکر می‌کنید نیست (قانون حمایت حقوق مؤلفان و مصنفان و هنرمندان). لطفاً تنها تصاویری را بارگذاری کنید که آزاد می‌باشند و یا خودتان مالک آن‌هایید. لطفا تصاویر را از روی اینترنت و یا کتب و مجلات منتشر شده به اینجا انتقال ندهید؛ زیرا وقتتان را تلف کرده‌اید؛ دیر یا زود حذف خواهند شد. ویکی‌انبار پروژه‌ای آزاد است و نه پروژه‌ای برای کپی/پیست تصاویر از اینترنت به آن. نزاکت را هم رعایت کنید. Americophile 20:02, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

آقای محترم تمام عکس هایی را که شما کاندید حذف کرده اید عکس هایی هستند که خودم گرفته ام یا دوستانی که از آنها

خواهش کرده ام عکس بگیرند و بفرستند عکس کوره آجر را خودم شخصا گرفته ام شما از کجا فهمیدی که آن نقض کپی رایت دارد؟ بطور مثال عکس قلعه درسته که تصویر یک شخص در آن هست ولی تا زمانیکه من عکس بهتری از ان بدست نیاورم برای فهماندن مطلب به مخاطب کمک می کند بسیاری از آن نقشه برای توضیح یک مطلب ضروری است

هیچکدام از اینتر نت نیست دارای حق کپی رایت هم نیست . اما چون در ویکی پدیا فکر می کنند آنها حق کپی رایت دارد آن را در فلیکر آپلود کرده ام کخ بدانند حق کپی رایت ندارد. البته ممکن است تصویر حرفه ای نباشد همه عکس هایی که شما کاندید حذف کرده ای می توانند حذف شوند ولی زمانیکه عکس های بهتری آپلود شود بطور مثال تصویر ساعت آبی تصویر خوبی نیست اما فعلا من تنها تصویر ممکن را دارم و هزاران کیلومتر از آن مکان دور هستم اما بدیهی است وقتی عکسی از همان موضوع در آن صفحه آپلود شودشما می توانی عکس بد را حذف کنید من آن تصاویر را فقط برای فهم مخاطب گذاشته ام صمنا من بیکار نیستم که عکسهای دیگران را آلود کنم و کاندید کردن آنها تحت عنوان کپی رایت بویژه در مورد مقالات فارسی مسخره ترین چیزی است که در اینجا صحبت می شود آثاری که من می فرستم هیچکدام مشمول حق کپی رایت نیست اینرا آگاهانه می گویم چون نقض کپی رایت در درجه اول متوجه خود نقض کننده است بارها مقالات من از رسانه ها ایرانی خوانده شده بدون دکر منبع یا حتی در روزنامه های رسمی اما من شکایتی ندارم برای اینکه هزینه شکایت از دستاورد کمتر است . مثلا برای من مهم نیست عکسهای جزیره کیش یا اصفهان یا رود اسالم حذف شود آنها را حذف کنید اما حذف نقشه ها با نیت صورت می گیرد و باید انگیزه یابی شود من برای گرفتن آن تصاویر به جاهای مختلفی مراجعه کرده ام از جمله موسسه سحاب . ش

آنچه شما مجددا تحت عنوان قانون برای من اعلام کرده ای قانون 1348 زمان شاه است در جمهوری اسلامی خیلی از قانونها وجود دارد اما مهم اجرای آنها است آنچه من گفتم این است که فانون مالکیت معنوی در ایران اجرا نمی شود

maahmaah I realy give up i do not know with which language and how many times i should write i am the owner AND no copy right violation. many times i had wrote this is my own, pictured from my own book or from my own work by my own camera or from my own weblog ...but still somebody is nominating my upload for deletion under pretext of copy right. you had deleted my picture . i had published it in my weblog and fliker and 4shared. but again sombody have asked delet . This file is a copyright violation because it is copyrighted and not published under a free license.look: This file is a copyright violation because it comes from: http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/WFGQv_MZ/_online.html#dir=121321857 OK . ok how many times i shall write i myself am the owner of this page : http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/WFGQv_MZ/_online.html#dir=121321857 and also i am the owner of http://www.flickr.com/photos/54272266@N06/5981369985/in/photostream — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maahmaah (talk • contribs) 25 February 2012‎ (UTC)

قانون حق تکثیر ایران اگرچه مربوط به دوران پهلوی‌است ولی در جمهوری اسلامی هم اجرا می‌شود. قانون حمایت حقوق مؤلفان و مصنفان و هنرمندان، قانون اصلاح مادهٔ (۱۲) قانون حمایت از حقوق مؤلفان و مصنفان و هنرمندان مصوب ۱۳۴۸. حوصلهٔ مغلطه و سفسطه را ندارم، لطفاً این بحث را ادامه ندهید. Americophile 02:45, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

آقای محترم قانون کپی رایت حرف شما درست. اما وقتی بنده می گویم من نویسنده و ناشر آن کتاب هستم و همه آن نقشه ها را در کتاب منتشر نموده ام کتاب را رایگان توزیع کرده ام قبلا هم بعضی نقشه های آن را در وب سایت پرشن گلف آنلاین منتشر کرده ام هیچگونه کپی رایتی برای آن در نظر نگرفته ام انگیزه ام فقط به اشتراک گذاشتن اطلاعاتی است که برای بسیاری از هموطنان مفید است کجای این حرف مغلطه است. عکس مربوط به کوره آجر محمود آباد تهران را بنده شخصا گرفته ام هیچ حق کپی رایتی ندارد خودم آنرا در صفحه فلیکر و 4 شیی ر منتشر کرده ام شما از کجا فهمیدی که آن حق کپی رایت را نقض کرده است؟ آقای محترم من خود تخصص در حقوق بین الملل دارم و هرگز حاضر نیستم حق کپی رایت کسی را نقض کنم آیا بهتر نیست مثبت بیندیشیم . maahmaah

حامد کرزی[edit]

Hi! About حامد کرزی - Would it be alright if the individual section names and the individual picture captions get Persian too? Something like what I did at United States Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 09:45, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi! Done. I removed some images of Hamid Karzai with US officials such as Rod Paige or Elaine Chao because I think they are not very important persons and completely irrelevant to Afghanistan. Furthermore, I think that there are lots of redundant images that must be deleted such as some of images with George W. Bush (but not all of them). Americophile 00:49, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Rumi[edit]

Please refrain from such edits. Thanks Americophile 04:49, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Why ? Did you read Category talk:Writers from (Ancient) Persia ? If you cannot find valid arguments about that issue, I'll remove such non-sense categories. Thank you. Takabeg (talk) 04:51, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but this is absolutely irrelevant. If there is any problems with the category name, the solution is to find a better name, rather than to remove it from Category:Rumi. Both of us know that Rumi is a Persian, not a Turk and we know that some Turkish guys try to distort the facts! Take care Americophile 05:06, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

No valid reason[edit]

Could you please explain why you think "No valid reason stated". Thanks. Americophile 23:46, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Images with copyright issues shouldn't really be nominated for page moves until that is resolved. I do not want to move images if they are going to be deleted anyways. I accidentally clicked the button (I accidentally hit enter while reaching to the keyboard) too early so I apologize for that reason as I was not able to input my rationale. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 23:49, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
It seems logical. Thanks for clarification. Americophile 23:54, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Transferring to WikiCommons[edit]

Hi,

Do you have any better suggestion on this[1].

How can I share the file with commons, I mean I don't want to download the file and upload it again. The file is already on en.Wikipedia, I wanna transfer it to Wiki Commons so to share it, with other projects. Then I want to use it on other wikis. (Its necessary to mention that file is not mine and I have not uploaded that at first place, Its uploaded by another user, which he himself don't know how to share that.)

Cheers, KhabarNegar (talk) 11:44, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi, You can use Move-to-commons assistant. For more information please see Commons:Moving to Commons. Best. Americophile 08:00, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
You know I think tools don't work. This is the error I got "Toolserver User Screening Control, Could not find the requested edit! ::Information might be delayed; try reloading this page in a few seconds." you may see my talk page, & I have done what that tool said to me. Anyway you helped, I don't want to take your time more, its my time to find the way, Thank you. KhabarNegar (talk) 12:44, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
I usually upload them manually so I'm not very familiar with the procedure. You may ask your questions at the help desk and I'm sure that you will get the best answers there. Please consider searching previous archives before starting a new thread. Thanks. Americophile 18:26, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

من دسترسی برای حذف تصاویر ندارم و تصویری را هم تاکنون حذف نکرده‌ام؛ اگر منظورتان نامزدی برای حذف است، دلایل را به همراه لینک‌های موردنظر در همان صفحات نامزدی توضیح داده‌ام. لزومی برای توضیح دوبارهٔ همهٔ آن‌ها در اینجا نمی‌بینم. Americophile 18:18, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

File:Zahra_Rahnavard.jpg[edit]

این تصویر همان است و نه تصویری مشابه، تفاوت معنی داری ندارد فقط کاربر قبلی اطراف شخصیت را سفید کرده بود که به حالت طبیعی برگرداندم--►Surena/Discussion)1 Farvardin 1391-- 10:51, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

پروژه از نظر فضا و حجم با محدودیت مواجه نیست. لطفاً تصاویر جدید (حتی کراپ، فلیپ یا ...) را تحت نامی جدید ذخیره کنید و نه روی فایل‌های قبلی. در ضمن تفاوت از نظر شما معنی‌دار نیست ولی از نظر من قطعاً معنی‌دار است؛ تفاوت اصلی هم در فلیپ شدن تصویر است و نه سفید شدن پس زمینه که برای ویکی‌های چپ به راست طراحی شده‌است.

شما هنوز جوابیه قبلی من را پاسخ نگفتید، بهتر نیست اول قضیه قبلی حل و فصل کنید؟Sarbaze naja (talk) 20:13, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

اگر مخاطب کلامتان من هستم لطفاً آن را در صفحهٔ بحث من بنویسید تا من متوجه آن بشوم، آثار شما آثاری اقتباسی (اشتقاقی) هستند و شما تنها پدیدآورندهٔ آن‌ها نیستید بنابراین باید رضایت پدیدآورندهٔ اصلی را نیز جلب کنید. دربارهٔ تصاویر محمود احمدی‌نژاد هم موضوع این است که آن تصاویر سوژهٔ اصلی عکاسی نیستند و Commons:De minimis نجات‌دهندهٔ آن‌هاست؛ دقیقاً مانند این تصویر شما. در ضمن لطفاً عنوانی جدید برای بحث ایجاد کنید زیرا که ربطی به بحث قبلی نداشت. Americophile 20:59, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

سلام. چطور حواست به File:Gasht e ershad.jpg نیست، ولی قبر 3 تا شهید گمنام را خط قرمز میدونی! Sarbaze naja (talk) 20:31, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

سلام. لطفاً نیت‌یابی نکنید، به جای بحث بر روی مشارکت‌کننده بر روی محتوا تمرکز کنید و نزاکت را نیز رعایت فرمایید. تصویر مورد نظر شما اثری از ایرنا و به‌وضوح ناقض حق تکثیر است که نامزد حذف سریعش کردم. خود شما هم می‌توانستید این نقض حق تکثیر را با استفاده از {{copyvio}} گزارش کنید.

?[edit]

Hi, Americophile. Can we upload this image without permission ? Thank you. Takabeg (talk) 00:28, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Takabeg. Absolutely not. I reported it as a copyvio because I'm pretty sure any attempt to convince governmental organizations in Iran to send a permission to OTRS will fail. They don't care about copyright issues and don't understand how a free content differs from a copyrighted one. If you think that there is any chance to save the file, don't hesitate to undo my edit and ask the uploader to send a permission to OTRS. Americophile 02:45, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
