File:CPR LogoBlack.jpg[edit]

I see you nominated File:CPR_LogoBlack.jpg for deletion. I did also because it is a logo for a university at commons, so I just assumed it was a copyvio. I asked for it to be restored per the discussion below, but am not sure what to do now:

Now undeleted and restored at the article. So, what about the license? Who actually owns it? Is it to be public domain. You decide and then we can work out the wheres and hows of the license. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 15:06, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
Well, it was designed by our student body, as a gift to our college, but since licensing is not a big deal in India, we did not file for a license. Also, because, it is something which is safe in the public domain, and we have no issues. If you think I should apply for a license for the image as the ex- head of the student body, please let me know as to how I should go about it. I along with the co designer can apply for the license together of you think it is necessary. Regards.--24.96.190.19 (talk) 04:58, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Please advise. Many thanks, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 03:15, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

I think the best way forward would be to ask for permission via COM:OTRS from the designers of the logo, as we have to assume everything is copyrighted if not proven otherwise. Also if the image is in the public domain, than the CC-BY-SA-3.0 tag is not applicable for the logo. User:Armbrust (Local talk - en.Wikipedia talk) 09:59, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
I've asked the uploader to send in permission [1]. Would it be okay to swap in the otrs pending template? Many thanks for the assist. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 02:23, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
No. User:Armbrust (Local talk - en.Wikipedia talk) 08:57, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok. I'll give that a score of 10 for both clarity and bluntness. :( Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:13, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Oops. I meant to say Yes. It looks like I was still a little sleepy after just waking up and answered the "Objections?" question at Commons:Deletion requests/File:CPR LogoBlack.jpg here instead there. Face-blush.svg User:Armbrust (Local talk - en.Wikipedia talk) 21:58, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Possible deletion of pictures added to Geoffrey Bagley page[edit]

Hi Armbrust, I can see that two pics which I have uploaded are tagged for deletion but I am not sure how to respond to that. I hope messaging you like this is ok? My rationale for assuming that the pics are ok to upload is as follows:

  1. The picture of the Escort Frigate was drawn by Bagley for the Canadian War Office when he was working for them seconded to the Royal Canadian Navy from 1939 to 45. Therefore I have assumed that the copywrite holder is the Canadian Government and not Geoffrey Bagley, therefore there should be no copywrite issues in the same way that the USA Government does not copywrite its images.
  2. The oil painting of the speed boat is in my personal collection. I own the painting and I own the image and picture which I have used of the painting. Therefore there are no copywrite issues there.

I hope my assumptions are correct and that the pictures are allowed to remain. If you need any further information please message me. Regards, Bagley59 —Preceding comment was added at 16:01, 1 April 2013‎ (UTC)

Sorry, but that's not enough. (1) There is no similarity between the Government works of the US and Canada. (2) That you own the painting doesn't mean, that you also have copyright for it. BTW in the meantime both images were deleted by Ronhjones (talk contribs blocks protections deletions moves rights rights changes).

Deletion request[edit]

Okay, okay, I'm sorry. I uploaded LizCochran1.jpg for w:Wikipedia:Files for upload. The requester had said the images were all Army images, and I took his word. I should have just checked. I will always check before I upload. Citrusbowler (talk) 23:39, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

No problem. Not everything on these websites was created by them, sometimes they use content from other sources. User:Armbrust (Local talk - en.Wikipedia talk) 04:23, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:Russian billiards players auf Commons[edit]

Hi Armbrust, Ich bin gerade dabei Bilder von meinem Besuch der de:Dreiband-Weltmeisterschaft 2013 hochzuladen und zu kategorisieren. Dabei bin ich über diese Kat gestolpert. ich finde das Lemma ziemlich verwirrend. Ist zu verwechseln mit "Billiards players from Russia". Wäre eine Umbenennung oder Klammerzusatz (Russian pyramids) nicht sinnvoller? Gruß. --LezFraniak (talk) 19:48, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Ja, damit hast du recht. Wahrscheinlich is est auch Category:English billiards players wahr. Dies sollte aber nicht ohne Diskussion geändert werden, da es die Konvention für Disziplinäre ist (siehe Category:Billiards players by discipline). Die Konvention für Nationalitäten ist "Billiards players from NATION". User:Armbrust (Local talk - en.Wikipedia talk) 10:43, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Ich habe Beschreibungen für die Kategorien geschrieben, und ich denke, dass sollte genug sein. User:Armbrust (Local talk - en.Wikipedia talk) 11:02, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

"Happy Diwali!"[edit]

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning behind it is "the awareness of the inner light". It is the belief that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil” refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening come compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings Satcitananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light. While the story behind Diwali and the manner of celebration varies from region to, the essence is the same – to rejoice in the Inner Light! And this year Diwali and All Souls' Day come together to fully defeat the Evil! "Happy Diwali!"JKadavoor Jee 06:01, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Alitta succinea (epitoke form).jpg[edit]

Yes check.svg ResolvedFile was delisted on en.Wikipedia and than subsequently deleted on Commons. User:Armbrust (Local talk - en.Wikipedia talk) 10:58, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

You urgently need to apologise to User:Biopics for showing gross stupidity and rudeness. This is a scientific image. While balance is not a matter of taste. You insulted him by claiming the nomination was pointy and by claiming that the opinion of the expert creator had no weight, especially compared to a bunch of complete amateurs over at en:wp. If you think "Nobody needs to consult you to modify the image you uploaded" you are using legal technicalities to justify an act of gross stupidity. Commons is a repository of free educational medial. See the word "educational"? Not "free media". So the fact that the other file is no longer educational and is actually negatively educational wrt the correct colours for the animal, as judged by, doh!, the subject expert, should matter a lot. I have requested a delist-and-replace over at en:wp. You might be able to redeem yourself by re-opening the Commons deletion yourself with some grovelling remarks. The creator of tens of thousands of images is now leaving Commons. You have the opportunity to do something about that.... -- Colin (talk) 15:02, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

I hope your deletion of this message was a mistake. This is a serious issue and a serious misjudgement on your part that has had significant consequences. Not something for your to sweep aside. -- Colin (talk) 15:18, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

Ticket 2012010510009261[edit]

Hello Armbrust. I note you're one of the few Hungarian-speaking OTRS volunteers active on Commons this week. Could I persuade you to have a look at the request at Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard#Confirm 2012010510009261? —Psychonaut (talk) 06:30, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
