Wappen der Freiherren Pranckh zu Pux[edit]

Hallo. Die Familie stammt ursprünglich aus der Steiermark, dementsprechend leitet sich die bayrische Linie aus der steirischen ab. Das hochgeladene Wappen mit den 4 Feldern ist das freiherrliche Wappen der Pranckhher zu Pux, welches 1298 durch die Vermählung zwischen Friedrich von der Pranckh mit der Erbtochter Anna von Pux entstand. Das Wappen mit den 2 Zinnen ist das ältere Stammwappen. Neben dem einfachen Stammwappen und dem Wappen der Pranckhher zu Pux bestehen auch noch jene der gräflichen Linie bei Tyroff und Siebmacher.

Why has File:Caleidra, Miss Me, Official Video, Photo Still, Jan 2013.png has been nominated for deletion?[edit]

Hi De728631,

I just checked your reason for nomination for deletion and can see why you suspected it was a fan account. Caleidra has tweeted the image from her official Twitter account to verify that it is an official Flickr account.


Can't authenticate E-mail.[edit]

Hello De728631,

Would you, as an administrator, please check my account and see what is wrong, in that I am unable to authenticate my e-mail function, thereby limiting me. I've asked for authentication codes but I've never gotten one from Commons, even though I get the message that one has been sent.

Thanks, Bassoonstuff

File:Infanteria Ejercito de Chile.jpg[edit]

Please do not delete. The Chilean Army (Ejército de Chile) shares its graphic work. See please page and in the bottom "Todos los derechos reservados bajo una licencia Creative Commons No Comercial - sin derivadas 2.0 Chile". Thanks!

Drosophila images[edit]

Hi I am User:Josiasseb

One FlyBase guy and I agreed on the license terms as well as text labels for these images. I send e-mails we got to Do I need to provide something more? Maybe the CC license we agreed on is not the right one?, or, is a USA academic database partly funded by NIH. Some of these images were published in 1943/1944. Those should not have copyright anymore, right?

Need to Hire Heraldry Artist[edit]

I am looking to hire an artist to create vector coats of arms for me. Please contact me at

I'm sorry, but I'm not a professional artist nor do I do works on private commissioning. If you would like to have a coat of arms created for use on Wikipedia, we can discuss it here without having to send emails. De728631 (talk) 16:59, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Deleting images[edit]

Hi there,

Thanks for helping me categorise some of the Flickr images within Category:Photographs by NZ Car Freak. I have just spoken to the author on Flickr, and he has asked that some files of his private vehicle be deleted because he did not wish for those to be on Wikimedia. Are you able to facilitate this? It is just a handful of images out of the 2,000 uploaded, specifically:

Cheers and thanks in advance! OSX (talkcontributions) 22:26, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Oh, I see, but I'm not an administrator at Commons, so I can't delete files over here. But what is more important is the fact that the photographer has released all those images under a Creative Commons licence. This is irrevocable and permits anyone to use the files anywhere — in short, he has no legal basis for claiming a removal of his photos. So anything we do would be a courtesy (and frankly if he doesn't want these particular images to be spread around he shouldn't have released them under a free licence in the first place). That aside, I don't see any difference between storing the files at Flickr or here. We could, however, blur the number plates and ask an admin to delete the previous upload or some such. If you think all these should be deleted please file a massed deletion discussion for them. De728631 (talk) 22:39, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Ooops, sorry I saw the admin tag on your Commons page but didn't read the text properly about it being for Wikipedia. I understand that the licesning is irrevocable, but I emailed the Flickr user to relicense and he did, so I think a courtesy deletion of just those files above would be the right thing to do. I will ask someone else only because the Flickr user wants the files deleted as soon as possible. Cheers! OSX (talkcontributions) 22:49, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, technically a relicensing won't work either because once you've released your photos on a CC licence this licence will remain valid for all times so any other licences applied afterwards are ineffective. Anyhow, a changing to (c) All rights reserved at Flickr might at least reduce the chance of these photos being spread any further. De728631 (talk) 22:54, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
I've just had a look at Commons:Courtesy deletions. You may tag these for speedy deletion and provide a reason like "Both original uploader and photographer request deletion". If that doesn't work and any admin decides to keep a file you can still run a full deletion discussion. De728631 (talk) 23:00, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Although all sorted now, thanks for all your help today with this matter. Cheers, OSX (talkcontributions) 06:35, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
