Thanks for uploading Image:Tiberkul church.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one.

Hello Dbachmann!

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. BotMultichillT (talk) 21:44, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

map update: Scythia-Parthia_100_BC.png‎[edit]

As a consequence of the archaeological excavations at Arzhan, Republic of Tyva, to which reference is made in the text, the full eastern spread of the Scythians should be included on the map Scythia-Parthia_100_BC.png‎. Ref.: [1]

The size of the kurgans, and quality of the findings now on display in the National Museum in Kyzyl, capital of the Republic of Tyva, surpass contemporary discoveries further west to Ukraine, and thus throw into question the 'origin' of the Scyths.

I have spent several years living in Tyva, teaching at the university - hence my interest.

File:Centum-Satem modern.png[edit]

Regarding the centum/satem map, isn't it rather artificial to place Romanian and French on opposite sides of the isogloss? Romanian appears among the satem languages and French among the centum languages. The words for "hundred" in these languages are "sută" and "cent" respectively; both are pronounced with an 's' (i.e. an alveolar fricative). But both derive from Latin centum.

The placement on either side of the line seems like an attempt to enforce some clear east/west split, at the expense of historical fact. --Saforrest (talk) 16:07, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

no, you probably cannot upload somebody else's artwork just like that. You need to file a verifiable permission via Wikimedia's ticket system. --Dbachmann (talk) 08:18, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Italy 6th c. BC linguistic map[edit]

Hi. I find your previous map File:Iron Age Italy.png) much superior to your latest one (File:Iron Age Italy.svg).

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]

Hello!

Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

Hi Dbachmann. A couple of other editors and I are looking to take the Horse article to FA status on the English WP, and we would like to use your image File:Chariot spread.png in the article.

Bas-relief[edit]

[comment made at User talk:Jameslwoodward/Archive3]

"In my opinion, a bas-relief is not a sculpture. A high-relief may arguably be a collection of diminutive sculptures in front of a stone face, but a bas-relief is clearly a 2-dimensional work of art, depicting a scene from only a single angle.
You might as well argue that an oil-painting is a 3-dimensional work of art because the paint layers have thickness.
Photographs of sculptures are legally considered original works, because lighting and choice of angle may be done creatively by the photographer. A bas-relief cannot be reproduced "orignally". This image is merely an unoriginal reproduction of a 2-dimensional ancient work of art and consequently not copyrightable. --Dbachmann (talk) 14:48, 10 March 2011 (UTC)"

[end of comment]

I have reverted your comment made on my Archive. Archives are just that, not active discussions. Comments made on a talk page are very public, while those made on an archive are essentially invisible, except to you and me.

As to your point, perhaps you should have read the discussion while you were at my archive as it clearly addressed the points you made above.

I agree that a bas-relief may not be a sculpture within the usual meaning of the word. It is, however, a 3D work, not 2D. The direction and angle of the lighting can dramatically affect the image.

My view is reinforced by our formal policy on coins, Commons:When_to_use_the_PD-Art_tag#Photograph_of_an_old_coin_found_on_the_Internet. A coin and a bas-relief such as the one we are discussing have more or less the same relief.

Finally, our position that photographs of 2D works do not have a new copyright is based entirely on Bridgeman v Corel, which dealt only with 2D works. This is not a 2D work, despite your opinion to the contrary.

Feel free to try to change our well established policy on coins and similar works. However, until that policy is changed, works like this will remain unacceptable on Commons.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 16:55, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Since Bridgeman v Corel does not address this case in any way, I fail to see why should be able to cite it in support of your point of view any more than I could cite it in support of mine.

If there is a court verdict stating explicitly that bas-reliefs should be considered "3-dimensional works of art" for the purposes of copyright law, I would be interested in seeing it. And after being shown such a verdict I would of course immediately concede that this settles the question. As long as there isn't, this is simply idle speculation.

If there is a precedent that makes your point that "dramatic effects" of lighting on bas-reliefs or coins should be considered an original work worthy of copyright protection, I would be interested in seeing it. As long as there is no such precedent, I see no reason why wikimedia should go beyond actual legal practice in assuming things to be copyrighted. I am sure you can also create a "dramatic" effect by reproducing a photograph using, say, red lighting, or no lighting. But as we both know, such an effect, no matter how dramatic, has no effect on copyright. --Dbachmann (talk) 09:12, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

My Behavior[edit]

How can you talk about my behavior when you make edits like this in which you replace sourced content with your opinion. When one says things like "fallen out of use completely", "has been used as continental boundary in Late Antiquity", "has been the commonly used continental boundary", one can hardly be trusted on one's words alone. You should know that by now.

You have actually been pushing your opinions blatantly on other pages as well, such as this. Your new description reads "Locator map of Serbia which has been altered to show Armenia instead of Serbia for some reason."??? Is this some kind of mockery? Comments like this have no place in descriptions. So what that another map was used, most of the maps are actually derivative works and this one makes it clear in the description.--ComtesseDeMingrelie (talk) 20:40, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

what are you talking about? This has nothing to do with my opinions, it has everything to do with encyclopedic content discussed at w:continental boundary and elsewhere. Also, you are edit warring against numerous editors, all bona fide map editors. People upload broken and erroneous maps to commons. These should either be corrected or deleted. Sometimes I cannot be bothered to do either, so I leave at least a comment warning people against using it in encyclopedia articles. --Dbachmann (talk) 20:43, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Let me repeat this again: you deleted my sourced info. and replaced it with your opinions. You did the same thing on other maps, like the one I provided above. This little paragraph that you just wrote does not address any of the two instances raised above, and it does not explain why you feel like you have a monopoly in determining which maps are "erroneous" - despite being sourced - and which are not.--ComtesseDeMingrelie (talk) 20:53, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

nonsense. your "sourced info" concerned Herodotus. In a map that has nothing to do with Herodotus. You, madam, are just a troll. --Dbachmann (talk) 06:07, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

I at least had some source, while you had absolutely none. Using words like "standard", "most common", "most standard" requires that you furnish necessary evidence but I have not seen any of that as of now. That is undoubtedly the reason why you limit yourself to one sentence answers here and other pages. Answer my argument on the Europe map page,where are you hiding?--ComtesseDeMingrelie (talk) 06:21, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
wow, I have "no source"? Please come to w:continental boundary and read all about it. It's an encyclopedia article. With references. --Dbachmann (talk) 06:22, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

File:Historical Europe-Asia boundaries 1700 to 1900.png[edit]

It appears to me that your revert didn't work. Is it just my cache? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 06:51, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

I think so. The image is ok again for me at this point. Must be your cache. --Dbachmann (talk) 07:51, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

File talk:FirstCrusade.jpg[edit]

Great job tracking down the origin of the image.

In light of its actual subject matter, should the file be renamed? — Malik Shabazz (talk · contribs) 15:32, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

well, there is a much better quality scan at bnf.fr, so I suppose we could just upload that under another filename. I would like to keep the old image around though, as it has really made wikihistory over the past seven years or so. I actually remember the original debate on this image back in 2005. --Dbachmann (talk) 15:34, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

That makes sense. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz (talk · contribs) 15:53, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Wernigeroder Wappenbuch 010.jpg[edit]

I'm reasonably certain that it's just the word "Spiritus" written upside-down for some reason... AnonMoos (talk) 09:34, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

you may be right. Interesting, it never occurred to me that "spiritus" upside-down would look like "baruch", but I'll retract my claim. --Dbachmann (talk) 10:04, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
P.S. Looking at the image again, the bottom two "Non Est"s are written mostly upside down, so writing "Spiritus" upside down is consistent with that... AnonMoos (talk) 15:33, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
you are right. I was misled by the "capital S" used for Spiritus. --Dbachmann (talk) 05:51, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

IE expansion picture need an update[edit]

Hi Dbachmann, I like your picture of Indo-European Expansion (File:IE expansion.png) that you created all the way back in 2005. But there are some problems with it, if you check the English Wikipedia talk page (here), you see that a user has listed several errors in the image. I would agree with all of the points made in that list, except perhaps Crete and Cyprus as I think they were at least partly Greek by that date. Other anomalies would be the Etruscans in Italy and I'm not sure about the arrangement in Iberia either. Another issue may be Anatolia, my understanding is that the Northern coastal region of Turkey was non-Indo-European for a long time after 2500 BC. The Kaskians and the Hattians lived there and in central Anatolia at that time and the Hattian area should only be Indo-European at 1000 BC, after the Hittites conquered the Hatti, in around ~1800 BC. Apart from those problems it's a nice map, but I think the issues should be resolved since this has now become such a frequently used image (several dozen articles on English Wikipedia alone use it). It would be really nice if you could create another expansion layer at like 500 BC or so. In fact it would probably be better to start with a higher resolution map, because that old one is very small for modern displays. --Hibernian (talk) 05:29, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

As you noted, I drew this picture as a brief sketch of the situation back in 2005. At the time, there was next to no coverage on the topic and a rough sketch was better than nothing. It is high time that the picture was replaced. I have always been aware that the image is only a rough illustration and not to be taken as accurate in any detail. It should just be superseded by a better map. So, the guy who made the list of complaints should just invest a little more effort and draw an improved map. It will be pointless to "fix" my old map, a the quality is simply too low. It could as best serve as a starting point on which to base the new maps. --Dbachmann (talk) 10:13, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Misnamed, orphan category[edit]

Category talk:Celtism - Zero response to call for discussion. We're the only two who seem to have bothered with it. Looks like it's up to us. Kathryn NicDhàna (talk) 20:33, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

I guess I accept "Celtism" as an awkward synonym for "Celtic Neopaganism", so at least as long as the category isn't duplicated under several synonyms I suppose I don't care too much what it is called. But I agree that a move to "Celtic Neopaganism" would be preferable. Even if "Celtism" may (or may not) be acceptable, it certainly isn't unambiguous. The primary meaning of "Celtism" is much wider, referring to "the Celtic character" in culture, language, etc., certainly not limited to polytheistic or pre-Christian topics. --Dbachmann (talk) 11:29, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Deletion requests[edit]

Hello,

If a file has been on Commons for several years, do not tag it for speedy deletion. Open a regular deletion request instead. In addition, do not remove information from the description page. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:09, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

yes sorry, I meant to mark it as "copyrighted", not as "speedy". Also, I did submit a formal deletion request for the parent image. I am not aware that I did remove any information, I rather added what information I could find. I actually did spend some time researching this, see Commons:Deletion requests/File:Allah-eser.jpg ‎ . --Dbachmann (talk) 21:22, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
