Re: File:NoviPazar05.jpg

Hi. I don't remember the original license of this picture on flickr when I've uploded it in it:Wikipedia. I'm only sure that the license was compatible with Wikipedia, but not the exact license.

Metalab

Thank you about the image change lisence request. I really will use it. (http://tools.wikimedia.de/~daniel/WikiSense/CheckUsage.php?i=Metalab001_A350.jpg&w=_100000)

Dear captain,

Kindly excuse my bad english.

I'm sorry for the copyright violation. But shouldn't then this pictures deleted too: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Puflogv1000X650.gif http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Openbsd2.svg http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Openbgpd.gif http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Opencvs.gif

Because the copyright is by the OpenBSD Group?

Kind regards. Unicard-ic

Request for check

Hi Captain-tucker, I saw you have OTRS access. Could you please check whether the images uploaded by Arjun024 are compliant with the given license/OTRS ticket? The permission note says images have to be checked individually (and I was asked about a watermark on one of them by a Malayalam Wiki user). Thank you Hekerui (talk) 13:45, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

It would appear that the three photos File:Vidya1.jpg, File:Vidya2.jpg and File:Soha.jpg do meet the requirements of ticket 2008030310010794. But this ticket as well at the template {{Cc-by-3.0-IndiaFM}} documentation does state that the image must be individually processed through COM:OTRS. Ticket 2008030310010794 can not be directly used for these image but should be referenced in the email to OTRS. You should either send in the email or have the uploader do this and remove the current OTRS ticket and replace it with {{OTRS-pending}}. --Captain-tucker (talk) 23:35, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

File:Haathi parvat.jpg

Can you see if you can mark this. I had transferred the image, so its better if someone else marks it. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 19:11, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

✓ Done, No problem. --Captain-tucker (talk) 19:43, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Thank you very much. I had contacted someone yesterday night in Germany but he seems to have been away. I will tell him to not worry about it. The license is right...only the flickr version is cc by sa 3.0. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:54, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Some images you might be able to save

Hi!

Are currently under a non free license. We have other images from this user, that is ok. So perhaps user is willing to change license. Could you perhaps ask him? --MGA73 (talk) 20:16, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Flickrmail sent. Will see what he says. Several of the images uploaded direct to en-wiki are freely licensed on Flickr. They need to be moved over to Commons. I haven't done that in a while, maybe I will move them... --Captain-tucker (talk) 12:45, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good... I thought all free Flickr images were now moved to commons. Perhaps I have forgotten some... :-) --MGA73 (talk) 17:49, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

File:Magic Roundabout, Swindon.jpg

Hello! The author has agreed to change the license on Panoramio to CC-BY-SA so you can confirm the license used on Commons. Link to the photo on Panoramio: [2]. By the way, he asked if it's possible to remove his full name as an author from the history (eg. by deleting those versions of the page where it's used or in any other way) and replace it with his nickname on Panoramio. Regards, Delta 51 (talk) 16:17, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

I passed the file. Can you provide me with the actual request from the copyright holder requesting to have his name removed. Will have to check on this as I am not familiar with our policy on removing this kind of info. --Captain-tucker (talk) 13:19, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
I've asked him to contact you via e-mail, so he can request it personally. Delta 51 (talk) 13:56, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps....

...you can make a miracle once more.... http://www.flickr.com/photos/riviera2005/463855187/ would be nice to have but we need a permission or a change of license. Perhaps you can get it for us? --MGA73 (talk) 21:18, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure you pasted the right link? That image on Flickr is already CC-BY-2.0. --Captain-tucker (talk) 09:20, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Yes... We had a DR discussion on enwiki. Perhaps someone else persuaded the user to change license :-) --MGA73 (talk) 18:03, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Hiya! You look very busy. Can you tell me what the dealio is with these 2 commons images? I saw your OTRS tag on both, from April 16. While we're at it, what is the dealio with this commons image: File:Chair1.jpg, if you know. That's the one I was checking on, and your tagged images are from the same user/submitter. Thanks much for what you're up to here. Arbortender (talk) 05:28, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

  • That's OK. I got the same message from both my father's computer and my computer. Perhaps the picture has some XML which plays havoc with uploading images here. Oh well thanks for your help. We both tried our best. --Leoboudv (talk) 19:54, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
  • This was the photo I was talking about. I couldn't upload it and Admin Lupo had to delete html and xml (as he says) which totally currupted the image before he could upload it here. Notice it has the same flickr source. I don't know how he does it but I don't bother sadly. It was taken 3 days before the final defeat of the LTTE on May 18, 2009 and Commons needed Mahinda's photo as PM of Sri Lanka. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:05, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

This DR

Would you like to make a reply on this DR? I think the photo can be kept given the unique circumstances. Commons was less strict with image permissions in 2007/2008 but the permission was given on 4 January 2009--very close to 2008. The permission is quite clear and mentions copyright.

Rosa 'Capistrano'

Hello,
I wanted to ask if you are sure about the identification as 'Capistrano', as it doesn't look like 'Capistrano' by Morris on helpmefind at all...
All the best, --Anna reg (talk) 20:50, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Last April I went on vacation to San Diego, California and went to a place call The Flower Fields where they have a Rose Garden with all of the All American Rose Selection Winners so I went around taking photos of first the rose and then the sign under the rose. Here is my sign photo: http://s696.photobucket.com/albums/vv323/bailey-tucker/?action=view&current=IMG_0706.jpg you can see a petal with the same coloring as my photo. I also found this Blog posting of someone who took a similar photo along with the sign at the same location: http://nadiaknows.com/2010/05/09/happy-mothers-day/ So I know that my photo is from the same plant. Unfortunately the AARS document just lists the Rose as 'Pink'. http://www.rose.org/site/files/766/66147/251395/463956/Past_Winners_2010.pdf One interesting thing that I did find if you go to page 11 (in the PDF) or page 9 as shown in this document (a listing from a different rose garden in San Diego: http://www.grpg.org/Files/HRGCatalog7.15.10.pdf it lists two Capistrano roses created by Morris, one in 1939 and one in 1949. I would assume that the one created in 1949 was the winner of the 1950 AARS. --Captain-tucker (talk) 15:48, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your detailed answer. I will give it finding information another try... --Anna reg (talk) 17:15, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Re: File:Cody Simpson Live.jpg

Hello, I completely understand why you tagged the photo for deletion, but have a bit of an issue. The permission was given to me by the author via Flikr messaging. Not E-Mail. How would I go about providing the proof that I was authorized by the author of the photo to use it on Wikipedia? Could I just copy and past the correspondence into the description of the photo? Any advise would be appreciated.

What I have done in the past is to take a screen shot of the Flickr email and send that screenshot to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org, see COM:OTRS for full instructions, the best thing to do is to get the Flickr author to change the license on Flickr to either CC-BY or CC-BY-SA. If they won't change it on Flickr, permission must go through the COM:OTRS team.--Captain-tucker (talk) 02:14, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

OK, did you try and contact the Flickr author and see if he might change the license on Flickr. I have done this many times and have had some success.

An email containing the permission for the File:Noh Gonbad Mosque.jpg from its creator was sent to "permissions-commons@wikimedia.org".--Artacoana (talk) 18:56, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Yes, unfortunately the email says you may upload the photo to Wikipedia. This is not an acceptable license on Commons, see: COM:L#Well-known_licenses for examples of acceptable licenses. You should contact the Flickr author again and see if they will either change the images on flickr to CC-BY/CC-BY-SA or reply back to OTRS providing a free license.

RE: File:BrandonFlowersJeanJacket.jpeg

Captain,

Hi. Thank you for having a look at the Brandon Flowers photo. In fact, this photo is allowed for use and is not under prohibitions for copyright. Furthermore, I work for Robert Reynolds (manager of Brandon Flowers) who holds any rights to this photo and has specifically given me permission/direction to put it up. Is there a better way for me to go about doing that? Would you please be able to help me figure that you.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. --Waytagojoe (talk) 18:44, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Responded here. --Captain-tucker (talk) 22:22, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Rename of File:Tanew Canon 068.jpg and File:Tanew Canon 133.jpg

Thanks for your response to my request. Mistakenly used the term "mispelled". As a beginner, trying to fix the previous error in the name of two files named "Canon Tanew ...". In fact, I care about the harmonization of names within my own files. In these two files, I used the word "Canon" instead of something more appropriate such as a brief description of the place or even the date the photo was taken. The names of my files also leave core "IMG_xxxx" so I can easily find them in the Wikimedia Commons. Try to find the photo files using a set of words "palenica img", "szczawnica img" or "kazimierz dolny img".

Unfortunatly moves for that sort of reason are not supported by the File renaming policy. But if you want an easy way to find all of your images the better thing to do is to use User Categories. Policy is here. All you do is create a user category such as Category:Files by Robsuper and then in that page put {{user category|cat=Files by Robsuper}}. Then add this category to all of your images and you have a easy way to find all of your images. If you upload a lot of files you can even have sub user categories. Take a look at mine: Category:Photos by Captain-tucker. Now user categories are hidden categories so you will not see them on the file page unless you enable viewing of hidden categories in your preferences. You can enable this by going to My Preferences/Appearance and checking the box next to Show Hidden Categories. Let me know if you have any questions. --Captain-tucker (talk) 10:38, 13 January 2011 (UTC).
Good idea, I will use it. However, again I posted a request to change the names of these two files but this time with a more eloquent figure. And if File Renaming policy will not be too cruel to me, however I have a great re-request for the establishment of such names in accordance with the wishes of my humble manner and modes wish. Thank you in advance, Your Honour. --robsuper (talk) 12:29, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
I will let another file mover/admin decide on your move request, BTW you should always sign your talk page messages, just click on the signatures icon on the editing toolbar Button sig.png or enter ~~~~. --Captain-tucker (talk) 12:35, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your help and understanding. Knowledge is the almighty power. --robsuper (talk) 12:49, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

For looking into that for me. I didn't want to do anything if I wasn't 100% sure, but I always like having the full answer to a question.  :) Canada Hky (talk) 00:51, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Reviewing question

Hi, Captain-tucker. Among the many files in Category:License review needed I came across a couple of files from http://www.travelgeorgia.ru/ e.g. File:Daryal Gorge.jpg. Each page of travelgeorgia.ru has an indication at the bottom that the content is published under cc-by-sa-3.0. I wonder if in such a case the License review is indeed needed? Isn't it meant mainly for files from sites with multiple licenses? What to do? Thanks. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 09:40, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, you are correct, COM:LP does specifically state: external websites that provide images under different licenses. and travelgeorgia.ru does have a footer that licenses everything on the website under cc-by-sa-3.0, so {{licensereview}} does not really apply. As all of the images from travelgeorgia.ru had the {{licensereview}} template added by User:Geagea you might want to drop a note on his/her talk page and then remove the {{licensereview}}. Let me know if you need any assistance. And Thank You for all of your work in Category:License review needed, I added almost 600 images to that category and you have done the majority of the work. --Captain-tucker (talk) 11:10, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome and thank you so much for your explanation. I did as you suggested, and made a general license-notification as header of Category:Photos from travelgeorgia.ru. Here is one more problem I have, and for which I want your advice. Some files, e.g. File:Kintua river.jpg or File:Torre de Madrid y Edificio España en plaza de España de Madrid.jpg, the source indicates license cc-by or cc-by-sa generally, without adding a version number. How to treat these? Thanks again. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 15:42, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
It is my opinion that if the publisher does not specify a specific CC license version that it would default to the latest version currently available from CC. At this time this would be 3.0. There have been discussions within OTRS as to what to do when someone just says CC-BY/CC-BY-SA and does not specify a version but I am not aware of any consensus so that's what I do. --Captain-tucker (talk) 15:56, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. I agree that perhaps it is best to add 3.0 as version, but when it is already given as for instance cc-by-sa-all, I think I will accept that. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 13:26, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

License Review

Hi Captain-tucker. I've noted you dedicate some time to license reviewing and thought you might be interested in testing a new version of the script. Since I saw in your contributions that you sometimes review files with {{LicenseReview}}, I thought you might be a good reviewer to ask. Would you be interesting in reviewing files in Category:License review needed and do regular reviewing for testing? If so, you may temporarily replace the license review script with User:ZooFari/Sandbox.js. The new stuff about the script are:

  • Use license + to review files with {{LicenseReview}}. Note it does not work yet if the template has parameters.
  • If there is no {{flickrreview}} or similar template, use license + and the script will add one to the bottom of the page (may not be convenient if the license is not the last object of the page; I'll try to see if I can find a solution)
  • {{Picasareviewunnecessary}} and {{Panoramioreviewunnecessary}} in the license - drop down menu
This new modified version has many loops and conditions that can potentially introduce bugs, so any errors or suggestions before making it live would be appreciated. If you're busy then no big deal, just let me know. --ZooFari 04:30, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
I would be happy to test out your new script. --Captain-tucker (talk) 11:05, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Curious as to why you removed reference to your script in the edit summary. I think it's good to know that a certain script was used for something like {{LicenseReview}}. --Captain-tucker (talk) 12:08, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I removed the reference because I thought the summary looked cleaner and simple. Perhaps having them more informative by including the script reference would be more important. I'll see what I can come up with. Let me know if you have further suggestions. --ZooFari 06:31, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

It seems that the OTRS permission is only for the image while we might want the permission from the original owner of the image depicted in the poster. What do you think? Or can we take the poster under de minimis principle and give the photograph owner the copyright since there is also a certain amount of originality involved in the image? --Sreejith K (talk) 10:50, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
This is a close one, I would recommend that you open up a deletion request for this image asking if we need permission of the poster photographer or if it meets the requirements of de minimis. I would lean toward needing permission. A DR is the best way to go. --Captain-tucker (talk) 11:57, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

I have restored all three but please look carefully at File:Josh_Brolin_and_Diane_Lane.JPG, File:HFPA07 5533.jpg. They both have EXIF data that claim different authorship. You may want to review the entire ticket closely just to make sure. Let me know if you want File:Josh_Brolin_and_Diane_Lane.JPG and File:HFPA07 5533.jpg deleted again. --Captain-tucker (talk) 10:48, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
Before I saw the images, it was already deleted stating balant copyright claim. Two persons, Josh Wood and Luisa Pisani has emailed OTRS saying that they are the owner of the image. They both have used the OTRS template email. Can I know what was the EXIF saying? --Sreejith K (talk) 13:11, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
If they use images for spamming - and all content at Josh Wood does not serve any other purpose but making a non-notable person visible in the internet, and that finding is consistent with the definition of spam - they should use their own images. The File:Josh_Brolin_and_Diane_Lane.JPG contains the author information of that WireImage photographer, the File:Josh Wood.JPG contains the information about said author. The only file that might be ok is File:Josh Wood.JPG where Jdwoodr is holding the camera himself apparently. Likley that upload is the only upload of Jdwoodr where the author claim holds, the rest is all not self-created. --Martin H. (talk) 09:26, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Captain-tucker!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Questionable uploads from "UED77"

Hi. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The problem was that one of the the upload guides in Portuguese included my username and the name Cesáreo Fraile Izquierdo (which is someone else's), and some uploaders copy-pasted that verbatim into the file descriptions. I have since replaced most references to my name, but the problem isn't completely solved. I will work with other translators of help pages to make sure this cannot happen again. —UED77 (talk) 10:22, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Your assistance please...

Could you help me with some information concerning File:Family celebrating St Patricks day at Guantanamo.jpg?

Could you help me with the timeline?

User:Yachtsman1 placed a speedy tag on Category:O'Kelly's pub, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base on 15:38, 28 January 2011. I changed that speedy tag to a full deletion discussion on 10:34, 31 January 2011. You closed that discussion as keep on 13:41, 7 February 2011 You deleted it on 14:09, 7 February 2011.

The record shows you also closed the discussion on File:Family celebrating St Patricks day at Guantanamo.jpg as delete on 14:09, 7 February 2011 I changed the speedy delete Yachtsman1 put on 10:34, 31 January 2011 The record shows that I changed a speedy delete tag Yachtsman1 put on the file to a full deletion discussion on 16:59, 31 January 2011.

What I would like your help with are:

  1. Did I upload the image of Patrick M. McCarthy, the senior officer who was responsible for the creation of the pub, and his family, prior to this offensive personal attack by w:User:Yachtsman1? Can you tell me when it was uploaded?
  2. Can you tell me when Yachtsman1 placed the speedy deletion tag on the article?
  3. If the wikipedia, or another sibling project, contained an article about the Pub, would you agree to restore this image of the club's founder on opening night?

Thanks! Geo Swan (talk) 17:39, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this as I have not been very active on Commons lately. To answer your questions, you uploaded the photo at 02:24, April 18, 2009, the speedy tag was added at 19:30, January 28, 2011 and the photo is not within COM:SCOPE because it appears to be a private image, it's a photo of a family at some type o celebration, there is nothing that relates the image to the Pub you mention. If you read this section carefully Commons:SCOPE#Examples, you will see that the photo in question is a perfect example of what it meant there. The other images in Category:O'Kelly's pub, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base relate to the pub but this one IMHO does not and is not in COM:SCOPE. You are of course free to bring this undeletion request to COM:UNDEL --Captain-tucker (talk) 00:55, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
You wrote "it's a photo of a family at some type o celebration, there is nothing that relates the image to the Pub you mention."
No offense, but the article the image illustrates was entitled "McCarthy's kick up heels at O'Kelly's" [7], [8]. 462 of the 714 words in the article the image illustrates are devoted to the McCarthy family, the family shown in that image. So, no, I can't agree that "there is nothing that relates the image to the Pub you mention."
Can we agree that images used on other project automatically in scope?
I asked you "If the wikipedia, or another sibling project, contained an article about the Pub, would you agree to restore this image of the club's founder on opening night?" Can we agree that there is, after all, a connection between this image of individuals who spoke or performed at the pub on opening night and the pub itself? Can I ask you to reconsider under what circumstances you would restore the image in order for it to legitimately be used on a sibling project?
I refreshed my memory of Commons:SCOPE#Examples. You said this called this appears to be a private image. However, doesn't the article largely about the featured role the family played on opening night in a public venue make this a public image? As an image taken by a GI it is not only a public image, it is a public domain image. Geo Swan (talk) 05:14, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I would recommend that you bring this issue to COM:UNDEL and obtain consensus there as to whether or not this image is in scope. You make some good points and that is the place to ensure that the right thing is done. --Captain-tucker (talk) 09:16, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I think I will wait until I have actually require the image. Geo Swan (talk) 19:55, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:IMG1066A.jpg

Hello Captain-tucker, I was curious as to why you closed Commons:Deletion requests/File:IMG1066A.jpg as keep. It is an extremely low quality image of someone sitting in front of a computer at a radio station. There is an excessive amount of jpg compression and the image is in a fairly low resolution. It isn't used on any of the projects, and there is no foreseeable educational use for the image in the future, either on one of the Wikimedia projects or elsewhere. Therefore, it is out of COM:SCOPE#File not legitimately in use. Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 16:18, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

This image didn't seem like it was blatantly out of scope and it seemed like there was a possibility that it could be used. This was admittedly a close call, I was on the fence thinking about it but ultimatly decided to close it as keep. There were no other comments so it was a judgement call. --Captain-tucker (talk) 04:21, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Ok, thank you for the explanation. Would it be fine with you if I renominated it. Perhaps a second nomination will draw comments. Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 20:06, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
If you would like that is fine as I have no 'stake' or interest in the image at all. --Captain-tucker (talk) 22:17, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of File:TramontoBosa.jpg

Hi, and thanks for reviewing my deletion request. You kept it because it was in use in it.wiki. In fact that picture was just part of a gallery, and didn't hold any prominent role in the article. I removed the file from it.wiki page about Bosa now. Should I nominate the file for deletion again? --Japs 88 (talk) 11:01, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

You certainly free to nominate the file again. I personally don't see anything wrong with the file, we do have lot's of sunsets but deleting a file does not save any resources, it just hides the file from public view. --Captain-tucker (talk) 18:47, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Not encyclopedic

Hi Captain-tucker, I removed File:The Iranian National Museum Of Medical Sciences History, Tehran; Iran (By Dr. Maziar Ashrafian Bonab) (4).JPG and File:The Iranian National Museum Of Medical Sciences History, Tehran; Iran (By Dr. Maziar Ashrafian Bonab) (14).jpg from the English Wikipedia article. Unfortunately I'm currently blocked on Persian Wikipedia and I couldn't remove them from the equivalent Persian Wikipedia article? If I ask a user of Persisn Wikipedia to remove them because of not being encyclopedic, will you delete them? AMERICOPHILE 18:27, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

If circumstances change relative to these files you are certainly free to nominate them for deletion a second time. --Captain-tucker (talk) 18:50, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

About the difficulties to understand the different combinations of Licence

Hello !

I received a strange message on my ip count telling me that I tried to vandalize commons ??? Actually, I didn't understand the different combinations of Licence. I think I understood now. I didn't tried to vandalize but I was surprised by the message shown when selecting specific Licence. I thought I couldn't use that licence on wikipedia. That's why, I do and undo until I understand the meaning and the purpose of the message.

Please, understand that it was only because I didn't know what kind of licence I should use to protect my svg file.

Sincerely yours,

French user, --Matwi (talk) 08:02, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I was doing a real time patrol of IP address changes and saw an IP address change a license to a template that did not exist on File:Montpellier - Tramway network.svg. I assumed that it was vandalism. IP address sometimes make strange edits in attemps at vandalism. I will remove the template from the IP address. I see that you have changed the license using your regular user id. Do you know that once you release a image like this using a Creative Commons license that its irrevocable. The CC-BY-SA-3.0 license will always be valid. So just changing the license to CC-BY-NC-ND is not a valid reason to delete the file. The image is in use, why do you apparently want it deleted? --Captain-tucker (talk) 11:33, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

I don't want to delete it ! I just want to protect the file from commercial use? Thanks for your help. --82.229.135.217 11:53, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Ok, Unfortunately as I mentioned you have released the image using the CC-BY-SA-3.0 license so there is no way to stop if from possibly being used for commercial reasons. Once you license something with a Creative Commons license its irrevocable which means that you can not retract that license, it's valid forever. The only way to stop it from being used commercially would be to get the image deleted via a deletion request but that may be difficult as it is in use and you did publish it with a valid CC-BY-SA-3.0 license. --Captain-tucker (talk) 12:07, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Photo deletion by you...

Hi, I posted a photo back in February to the Wikipedia page of Laura Cha.

Ms. Cha is a personal family friend and she gave me a photo of herself that had been taken by her husband. She asked me to post it as a replacement photo to one that already existed... and that she hated.

I did that... but apparently not in the right procedure, as you deleted it.

Can you please advise how I should "properly" go about replacing her photo for her?

I have read several pages in Wikipedia and Wikimedia etc... but frankly, ams still lost.

Thank you very much.

Tom

Tom, The photo that you uploaded File:Laura May Lung Cha.jpg on 2012-01-01 appears to be a professional corporate 'head shot' and has been published on the internet in many different locations [11],[12],etc... If you have an image that you personally took with your camera you can upload that. If you obtain a photo that someone else personally took with their camera then you need to follow the procedure at COM:OTRS. The photo must have a free license such as CC-BY or CC-BY-SA. You can not download a photo that appears on the internet or that someone else took without obtaining a free license from that person. If her husband really took the photo that you uploaded then you will need him to send an email with proof that he holds the copyright to that photo as described in COM:OTRS. Having the original high resolution image with EXIF data would be very helpful. When someone uploads a very low resolution photo that is published in many other locations on the internet we usually assume that they just downloaded it from some other website and uploaded it here without obtaining a free license from the copyright holder. Please let me know if you have any more questions. --Captain-tucker (talk) 11:42, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

You deleted a photo that I took personally and gave full permission for common use

Why did you take down my photo???? It was from my camera, by my hand, and was free use for anyone. What's up with that, Captain?

Could you let me know the name of the photo please.--Captain-tucker (talk) 00:28, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Files on Wikivoyage from Flickr

Hi!

If you are still into Flicr files then we have http://wts.wikivoyage-old.org/wiki/Category:Files_from_Flickr_-_local_licencereview with files that was uploaded to Wikivoyage or Wikitravel. The files are now unfree or no longer excisting but they were reviewed by a local user.

So we could 1) Trust the local reviewer or 2) Ask the user on Flickr for a change of license or a permission or 3) ???

Do you have any good ideas what to do? --MGA73 (talk) 08:01, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Well if we consider this against out 'rules', I don't think we can just trust the local reviewer. I would recommend that if any of the Flick authors are no longer on Flickr these image cannot be moved since we will not be able to contact them. The only thing we can do and meet our Flickr review requirements would be to try and contact the Flickr authors and verify if the free license was ever valid. I have not been that active on Commons lately but I will see if I can find some time to contact some of these Flickr authors. --Captain-tucker (talk) 01:52, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Help: no-FoP Italy

Hi. When you have a moment, could you do me a favor. I decided to occupy my time to list the no-FoP files in Italy. It has been a long and difficult work that needs to be reviewed by administrators. Please, could you check if everything is correct on User:Raoli/Deletion requests/FoP Italy? Thanks! Raoli ✉ (talk) 00:23, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

can't vote on picture of the year

hey, i've had an account on en.wikipedia.org for years and have made many edits ( > 750). it says if i'm logged in at en.wikipedia.org i'm automatically logged in at wikimedia.org, but when i try to look at the pics it says i'm not logged in (but i am -- at wikipedia), then when I try to log in (at wikimedia) it says my user name (Too Old) doesn't exist.

Don't know if you can help, but, if not, can you direct me appropriately?

Too Old

I believe that you need to visit this page: Special:MergeAccount. You will then be able log in to any wiki site of the Wikimedia Foundation without creating a new account. --Captain-tucker (talk) 10:43, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

SEEKING PERMISSION TO USE ONE OF YOUR IMAGES

Dear Captain-tucker,

We are visual artists and academics who are currently working on a chapter in a book entitled ‘The Photograph and the Album’ (published by MuseumsEtc http://museumsetc.com/blogs/news/7422776-forthcoming-the-photograph-and-the-album). We are also contributing to the editorship of this volume.

Our chapter is examining the role that the internet plays in acting as a 'giant photograph album'. We have taken this principle and have begun to look for images, searching – as many of us do – under our own names, curious to find out what images appear.

The following image came up in relation to one of our surnames:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rcnwr-1.jpg

We are interested in using this image in our chapter and want to confirm that you agree that we can do this in line with the statement that appears in Wikimedia Commons which is as follows:

“I, the copyright holder of this work, release this work into the public domain. This applies worldwide. In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so: I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.”

To be clear about our use of the image, it will appear as part of a sequence of images for which we will provide full captions and acknowledgement (in reference to the information which appears on the webpage provided above).

We hope you are willing to give permission and would appreciate if you would confirm this via this email – J.Carson@salford.ac.uk. We would also be very grateful if you could inform us of any other parties from whom we should seek permission in reference to this image, if you are aware of any such parties.

If you are willing to give permission please confirm the text you would like us to present in relation to the images to satisfy the condition of attribution.

We would appreciate it if you could respond by Friday June 21st 2013.

Thank you for your consideration & please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Very best regards, Rosie Miller & Jonathan Carson

See private email for response. Let me know if you need anything else.--Captain-tucker (talk) 13:03, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
