Gaborik Photo[edit]

Man, I wish I could've been there. Nice photo too, by the way. :D —Zachary talk 19:50, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Fargo vs. Winnipeg[edit]

Ughhh - I've done that before. Sorry, I ought to have checked your user contribution list first before leaving such a whining edit summary. These last few months, I have encountered a number of instances where people have categorized images really carelessly, so I was a little quick on the draw here. --skeezix1000 (talk) 13:17, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

File:2010-1014-PillHillRHD.jpg[edit]

I have extracted into 4 the File:2010-1014-PillHillRHD.jpg because it had the {{Extract image}} template. --Robot8A (talk) 20:27, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

File:09-02-06--ChristofOzarks.jpg[edit]

Hi! You've mentioned three different licences for this picture: GFDL, CC-By-2.5 and CC-By-SA-2.5. I'd just like to make sure if this is indeed what you want, or of there's been a typo somewhere. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 15:31, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

My early photos (which I uploaded to Wikipedia) were all eventually moved to Commons with these sorts of shotgun licenses--I assume because of a bot or something trying to convert licenses. All my work is basically supposed to be CC-by or Cc-by-sa. I've gone ahead and made the fix. All the best. --Bobak (talk) 18:51, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

File:112307-BritishMuseum-Badari.jpg[edit]

Technically, you first uploaded that picture under both "GFDL" and "CC-BY-2.5" (see http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:112307-BritishMuseum-Badari.jpg&oldid=12160122 ), and you can't retroactively withdraw either of those licenses. "GFDL" had "CC-BY-SA-3.0" added to it because of the great license migration, but that doesn't remove anything else. The display of the resulting templates may look visually messy, but what you changed it to was not accurate (and Wikimedia Commons places accuracy in legalities far above aesthetics). AnonMoos (talk) 11:30, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

Hello! Here's the situation: I only recently became aware that, at one point or another, someone changed the license tag on one of my older photos without my permission and added that GFDL tag. That photo was my copy/paste template for all the generic info I didn't want to repeat on later photos, so it was copy-pasted into all subsequent tags before I would just changing the description and date information. In fact, my oldest images on here (and Wikipedia) don't and never had that GFDL tag. There was never any intent on my part to release under that license and now that I've become aware of it and learned of a manner to correct it, I did. It came up because someone using my photo (a lot of them get used) emailed me to clarify what was going on in the tag and that's when I realized there was confusing jumble caused by someone taking actions they should not have. I've previously had people copy my images from Wikipedia to Wikimedia Commons with only a GFDL tag. I've learned to not blow up about it and make the fixes when they come up, I didn't mean to cause issues here, but the bottom line is the tag was not created by me and my intent is an important element of all of this: why would I create that jumble of tags that appeared on my image? If I had the time I would look through all however many hundreds of photos and figure out who added a GFDL tag to my tags but it's easier just to fix the damage. --Bobak (talk) 14:45, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:112307-BritishMuseum-Badari.jpg&oldid=12160122 reveals that you added the "GFDL" tag in your original upload of that image. If some scripting bot did something you didn't originally intend, or if you didn't really mean GFDL, then you need to go to Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard and explain yourself and request a licensing change. Your current unilateral nonsense violates Common policies and technical license legalities, and really doesn't help anything. As for a "jumble of tags", that means absolutely nothing at all in the context of Wikimedia Commons discussions, since here an unsightly "jumble of tags" which is LEGALLY ACCURATE is greatly preferred to any inaccurate aesthetically-cleaner version...

Did I just see you write[edit]

"If mine had to go, so does this." What sort of attitude is that? Einar aka 22:40, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Not enough of an attitude to chase peeps down to their userpage. --Bobak (talk) 00:22, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes, it is true that I have an attitude about this sort of thing. I was once pulled out of geometry class, by the hair, by a vice principal and tossed out of school until I got a haircut (this was long ago). It seems that when this same administrator had told someone else to get a haircut, that person had replied, "Well so and so has longer hair than me." and that was it for me. If you believed that your original posting should be saved then you should (in my opinion) be fighting to save the other posting not get it deleted. Again, in my opinion, this is what user pages are for, to talk about this sort of thing. Carptrash (talk) 03:49, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

This is a non-obvious case as the photos is a part of a scene and not the center of the photograph. This has already been debated and allowed. This calls all of your decisions as an editor in question. Thanks. --Bobak (talk) 15:26, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
