May I ask why it has been deleted? Please explain me some details... CartoonistHenning (talk) 18:08, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Compare http://earth.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=21422 and http://earth.google.com/intl/en-US/license.html with Commons:Licensing. LX (talk, contribs) 18:52, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Hm. "You can use Google Earth imagery for personal use, but cannot sell it to others." I don't think Wikipedia is for commercial use, but on the other hand they say "you cannot copy, translate, modify, or make derivative works of the Content or any part thereof". Should I display the Google logo then? CartoonistHenning (talk) 18:59, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
As mentioned, you should also read (at the very least the introduction to) Commons:Licensing, as mentioned. Quoting from there: "Media licensed under non-commercial only licenses ... are not accepted." LX (talk, contribs) 19:04, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Okay then... So I have to travel 800 miles to take a picture myself and upload it. Maybe I use the wrong camera too ¬_¬ Anyways. I'm not going to upload any pics here in the future. Bye | CartoonistHenning (talk) 19:27, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
You may wish to have a look at NASA World Wind as an alternative to Google Earth for obtaining free geographic imagery. LX (talk, contribs) 20:12, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Mange takk at du hjelper meg å finne alternativer da ;) CartoonistHenning (talk) 22:26, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, CartoonistHenning!

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.

The file probably has been deleted. If you sent a permission, try to send it again after 14 days. Do not re-upload. When the OTRS-member processes your mail, the file can be undeleted. Additionally you can request undeletion here, providing a link to the File-page on Commons where it was uploaded ([[:File:Artigpedia.png]]) and the above demanded information in your request.

Missing permission right? How can I explain that the creators gave me permission to upload these two images? The license and the authors are given in the table. Does Commons really need to have permission through e-mail or something? Still, the images are wiki logos on wikis which I run, so you won't get complaints from the copyright holders... CartoonistHenning (talk) 17:24, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Since the licensing claims you have made here contradict the licensing statements on http://oncyclopedia.net/wiki/Bestand:Wiki.png and http://artigpedia.org/wiki/Fil:Wiki.png (both non-free {{cc-by-nc-sa}} rather than {{cc-by-sa}}), you need to provide evidence of those licenses being granted by the copyright holders through OTRS, for which e-mail is required. The alternative is to have the authors indicate the licensing directly on the source sites. LX (talk, contribs) 18:00, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Okay, but it was CC-BY-NC-SA I meant for both images. I definitely oversaw the NC in the choices of the upload form. I prefer a normal wiki upload form with a full list of licenses. Can I change the licenses on the given images to the right ones, and then remove the nomination for deletion? CartoonistHenning (talk) 18:08, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Since {{cc-by-nc-sa}} is a non-free license, files under those terms are not accepted on Commons. The only exception is if they are also published under a free license, such as the GFDL, but there is no evidence that the copyright holders have approved GFDL licensing, as you are now claiming. LX (talk, contribs) 18:54, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Who are actually the copyright holders of these two images? The host of the sites? The site's community? The only thing I can tell is that the pics are licensed under CC-BY-NC-SA 2.5 on the two wikis and that the autors are respectively for Oncyclopedia and Artigpedia http://oncyclopedia.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Roye7777777 and http://illogicopedia.org/wiki/User:Silent_Penguin . The Oncyclopedia logo is based on the original potatoe logo from http://uncyclopedia.org that is licensed under the same license. The Artigpedia logo is selfmade, by the user Silent Penguin, so thereby submitted under CC-BY-NC-SA 2.5 too. I can't understand what the problem is and why this is so difficult. Should I adapt the same description of Media:Uncyclopedia.png? CartoonistHenning (talk) 22:42, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
The authors are the copyright holders. The problem is that files whose licensing prohibit commercial use are not permitted on Commons. You need to obtain the authors' approval to publish the files under a license accepted by Commons for the files to be hosted here. This is not a matter which can be addressed just by editing the file description. LX (talk, contribs) 23:03, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Then, will you please wait a few days to give me some time contacting these authors? Where do they have to respond? Is the discussion page of these images okay? CartoonistHenning (talk) 00:11, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
You should have at least seven days from the date of the tagging before the files are deleted, and they can always be undeleted if permission is received later. The authors can indicate the permission on the file description pages on the source sites. They need to approve publication under a specific license that allows anyone to use their work for any purpose, in modified or unmodified form. Noncommercial licenses or Wikipedia-only permissions are not sufficient. If you leave a note here when (if) you get the permissions, I can help you fix up the file description pages here.
