User talk:Denniss/Archive 8#Special:Diff/120338779[edit]

Seems like you overlooked my question there …    FDMS  4    08:13, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

John Mayberry Jr. picture[edit]

Hi, I apologize - I linked the photostream page, not the photo itself. Fixed. Thanks and sorry. Go Phightins! (talk) 19:22, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Djibouti FOP[edit]

I had filed this DR assuming that Djibouti, had no FOP. But I see that the uploader changed Djibouti's FOP laws here...before I filed the DR. Is the uploader's edit correct--or should it be reverted? The picture in the photo I took is not incidental as it is the focus of the photographer's camera. Djibouti's FOP statement now seems a bit unclear--as what is incidental?

Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 04:34, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Sleeping Giant - Quinnipiac Trail Tower Photo[edit]

Definitely my photo. Let me know what I need to do to tag it with appropriate Commons license, etc. I can no longer find the photo on Wikimedia -- I know it was referenced from some Wikipedia articles.

--H. Morrow Long (talk) 20:30, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

My sassy girl pictures[edit]

Hi Denniss, I put these pictures because when I surch on the web, I found with Creative commons license, so I believe that I can put on the web. I put the picture about Jun Ji-Hyun because she is the main actres; I do that for a work of my university, later I will delate it.

No, because unfortunately a lot of pictures have been pirated on the web and "released" under a false license by someone claiming to be the copyright owner, when in fact they most likely stole the copyright from someone else without asking permission. Around here it is often called license laundering. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 09:32, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Need your input[edit]

Hi Denniss! Auf der Diskussionsseite von User:Никола Питерский steht noch ein unblock request. Wie stehst Du dazu? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:13, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Zum Einen ist die Begründung für einen zu erfolgenden Unblock reichlich kurz und zum Anderen ist der indeffed in der russischen Wikipedia für 'destructive + unethical behavior'. Das geht also gar nicht. --Denniss (talk) 07:22, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
War mir eigentlich klar. Wollte Dir nur die Moeglichkeit geben Dich zu aeussern. Gesuch wird dem entsprechend abgelehnt. :) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 17:26, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Panoramio photographer[edit]

I notice there are 3 photographer cats on panoramio I was just wondering if you might consider creating a fourth category for this panoramio photographer I think there are 280 photos from his account on Commons here. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:04, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: As an aside, this user's uploads from April 20, 2013 to June 5, 2013 from panoramio have not been subject to a {{panoramioreview}} I ordered reviews for his post-June 5, 2013 images but must sign out now. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:38, 11 April 2014 (UTC)


Hi Denniss. In follow-up from my red-link housekeeping, I note that in the current Bad Boys report, I am shown with nearly 600 image pages with redlinks. However this is incorrect as it seems to have picked up many pages where the linked image was created soon afterwards. Do we ignore these as the report will refresh itself eventually, or does something need to happen? -- (talk) 14:33, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

There's a null-edit Bot from User:Zhuyifei1999 running through them once or twice a week (at least I hope it's still running). --Denniss (talk) 14:55, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Good, I'll ignore it for the moment then. -- (talk) 14:57, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

TIF and colours[edit]

Hi I see you have fixed colours in File:Stara Ljubljana - Ciril Metodov trg.tiff, can you do the same for File:Ljubljanska stolnica.TIF and File:Stara Ljubljana - detajl.TIF? --Sporti (talk) 08:10, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Done. --Denniss (talk) 14:36, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. It looks like you cleaned some thumbnail trouble.

Please give me a description of what was removed.

Hello Denniss,

You added a tag labeling one of my images as unsourced, but in fact I clearly labeled the source of File:BriarcliffManorCompilation.png as "own work" and the author as User:Ɱ. Whatever evidence you need that I personally photographed all of these locations and put them into this compilation on GIMP, I can provide.

Thank you. --ɱ (talk) 10:27, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Nowhere on the page is a statement that this compilation is based on your own images, we have many "own work" compilation using images taken from everywhere that have to be sourced or deleted. Please add this statement and remove the no source template. Even better would be the addition of links to the source images. --Denniss (talk) 10:51, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Well I haven't put the original images anywhere on the Web yet, the only exception being File:AllSaintsBriarcliff.jpg. I'll add the statement. Thanks for clearing this up. --ɱ (talk) 10:59, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:DEU Stadtlohn COA.svg[edit]

Hi, I undid your closing since there are some new arguments. This DR is not a clear case so it really should not be speedy kept. Could be an interesting discussion. Natuur12 (talk) 19:27, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Die Argumente sind ausgetauscht und die Diskussion ist gelaufen, das Wappen wurde modifiziert. Ich denke, man kann den Fall abschließen. --Maxxl2 - talk 21:25, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Denniss, ich denke du kannst den Fall abschließen - ich habe eine neue Quelle gefunden und das Wappen nochmal überarbeitet.--Juergenk59 (talk) 21:51, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Deletion query[edit]

I see that three photos on my watchlist, all with "Centre of New Zealand" in the file name, have been deleted. I suspect that I uploaded these, given that they were on my watchlist. What was the concern with those photos? If I was indeed the uploader, should I be notified if there are concerns? Schwede66 21:19, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

AFAIR these were incomplete uploads, just the filepage but no image. --Denniss (talk) 21:20, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I remember the upload bot not performing the other day. Given that it records the link to the photo, it would be easy enough to upload those photos manually. Would you mind restoring the three files? Schwede66 22:54, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Just to let you know that the files showed up on my watchlist (thanks!) and I have dealt with them. Schwede66 18:48, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Disculpa, has borrado una imagen que subí a la página de Ezequiel Montalt, y no entiendo porque, trabajo para Ezequiel y esa foto es propiedad suya. Tiene derechos sobre ella, puesto que se trata de una imagen de su propiedad, no me parece bien que se pueda borrar una imagen porque sí, sin dar opción y destrozar el trabajo de otra persona y los deseos de la persona que cede su imagen para wikipedia.

Te ruego restablezcas la imagen, no hablo correctamente inglés, hablo en español y para mí es mucho mas difícil entender todo esto. O dame una solución que pueda hacer para que haya una imagen en el perfil de Ezequiel. Muchas gracias y Saludos!

Answer at your 58 remarks[edit]

Guten Tag

Thanks for all the 58 remarks about the media I put on Commons wiki. Concerning the source of the media I have intermingled where I found the media and the one whom made the picture. I have changed that information for all the media you have indicated. I hope it's OK for a max of them. I have changed all of them excepted:

  • N° 1 Technical shaft. It was a shaft from a skyscraper in Dubai, but I think photos from tower in Dubai are not accepted. It can be cancelled; but I think it’s already done.
  • N° 2 Tour al Hamra à Kowet. I think it’s already cancelled. I am going to prepare another one.
  • N° 3 Hotel Marina Bay à Singapour. I think it’s already cancelled. Another one was prepared on Commons to be accepted N° 19.
  • N° 4 Vieux gazomètre à Zwickau. I think it’s already cancelled. Another one was prepared on Commons to be accepted N° 57.
  • N° 5 La tour Khalifa à Dubaï. Dito Tecnical shaft. Already cancelled.
  • N° 6 Tuyau en bois calorifugé. Already cancelled. The remarks from the man in charge at that time said the photo was not clear. I did à new scan and that new photo is on Commons to be accepted N° 28.
  • N° 7 La tour de l’hôtel Burj el Arab in Dubaï. Dito Tecnical shaft. Already cancelled.
  • N° 8 to 20 Sources have been changed.
  • N° 21 Pipe from the National Museum in Berlin. I gave on the source the references given by the museum. I don’t what to do else. “If you like, the credit line is: (c) Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin - PK, ÄM 23716” Klaus Finneiser. Please tell me.
  • N° 22 to 27 Sources have been changed.
  • N° 28 and 29 Tuyau en bois calorifugés d’Alaska and Maison des compagnons d’Anger. These two photos are « my own work”, I think it’s a mistake from the computer.
  • N° 29 to 41 Sources have been changed.
  • N° 42 I think the photo was cancelled. I cannot found it on Commons.
  • N° 43 to 45 Sources have been changed.
  • N° 46 La tour de l’Honneur de Lesparre. I think the photo was cancelled. I cannot found it on commons. But I went on that city and took a photo which is on Commons “on my own”.
  • N° 47 to 58 Sources have been changed.

If you are following the draft “brouillon” of my article about “Le Plombier et son Histoire “ or “The plumber and is History”, you can see that the text is finished. As soon as the photos I am introducing in the text will be accepted on commons Wikimedia, I will be able to put the article on Wikipedia (I don’t know yet how, but I’ll find!). Sorry for my English, which is not very good, but I am a French plumber! Best regards. Le plombier du désert.

Remarks on my media[edit]

Monday may 5th 2014. Guten Tag, On saturday 3rd may 2014, I made an answer to yours 58 remarks on the media I put on commons wikimedia; you can see the document on your talk section. This morning, 5 05 2014, I have changed the sources of the media n° 59 and 60, you have done the remarks. Sincerely. Le plombier du désert.

Hallo Denniss, jemand hat [1] hier aus mir nicht nachvollziehbaren Gründen zehn jpg-Wappen gelöscht. Sie dienten als Quelle und Vorlage zur Erstellung von SVG´s - Kannst du sie wieder herstellen? Gruß --Juergenk59 (talk) 11:21, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Gibt's keine Hilfe bei de:Wikipedia:Löschprüfung? --Denniss (talk) 11:35, 8 May 2014 (UTC)


Hallo! Ich antworte direkt auch (doppelt) in deiner Diskussion. Danke für deinen Hinweis und deine Aufmerksamkeit. Leider habe ich keinen direkten Einfluss auf den generierten Text, denn ich nutze Commonist zum Hochladen. (Zugegeben, man sieht die Verwendung von Commonist nicht.) Das Tool ist ein wenige eleganter als der Online-Upload. Aber leider hat er u. a. die beiden von dir bemerkten Nachteile. (Aber das sind weniger Nachteile, als der Online-Upload/Upload-Wizard hat.) Da ich diese Problematik kenne, habe ich mir einen (genehmigten) Bot geschrieben, der im Nachgang auch die von dir angemerkten Korrekturen anbringt. Auch zusätzliche Kategorien werden dann gesetzt und andere Unzulänglichkeiten beseitigt. Es ist für mich deutlich einfacher, erst einmal mit Commonist hochzuladen und dann im Nachgang zu korrigieren. Es kann allerdings passieren, dass zwischen den beiden Gängen mehrere Tage (oder auch mal Wochen) liegen. Derzeit läuft noch ein Upload und deine Anmerkungen kamen mitten im Upload. ;-) Also Geduld (und keine Sorge), die Korrekturen kommen.--XRay talk 14:09, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Ein Nachtrag: Klar, ich versuche auch, unnötige Bot-Aufrufe zu verhindern. Aber gleichzeitig versuche ich, möglichst wenig fehleranfällige Handarbeit auszuführen. Solltest du einen besseren Upload-Weg kennen als den Online-Weg (immer schwierig mit mehreren Bildern und recht viel Aufwand beim Eintragen von Kategorien und individuellen Angaben - es läuft einfach mit unserer langsamen Internetanbindung nicht fehlerfrei, wenn es über mehrere Stunden hinweg Bilder hochladen soll) oder Commonist (nicht ganz optimales Format, aber einfacher bei der Eingabe), bin ich für einen Tipp dankbar. Ein eigenes Upload-Skript habe ich bisher leider nicht geschrieben, welches einerseits das gewünschte Format schreibt und andererseits auch die EXIF-Daten zur Kategorisierung auswertet.--XRay talk 14:21, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Removal of separators between multiple deletion requests[edit]

I notice you removed the separators between separate deletion requests for a particular user that were on the same page.

The second one took place later and was decided separately. I don't understand what benefit this change makes- it makes the two different requests harder to differentiate- but perhaps you could explain? Thank you. Ubcule (talk) 16:05, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

I reverted the edits to the deletion nomination and closures because every single discussion says to make no changes to the discussion. I quote from the header visible to any user at the top of the page: This deletion debate is now closed. Please do not make any edits to this archive. You can read the deletion policy... I see absolutely no reason to change a deletion discussion in spite of bold red text saying not to and hence the reversion. I would additionally suggest that changing deletion discussions for any reason ever again is highly unrecommended as the policy instructions at the top of each closed DR states. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:18, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Additional; had not realised when I made that first comment that Denniss was an administrator, and therefore more likely to have known what he was doing. I'd still probably have asked anyway, though! :-) Ubcule (talk) 18:20, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
With these intersections the Delreq handler does not work, that's why I removed them to correctly close the DR on the affected pages. And this did not affect the DR discussion as the statements of the closing admins were kept intact and the discussion closed.--Denniss (talk) 20:18, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
I disagree that it doesn't affect the discussion, as it makes the separation between two different (albeit related) requests harder to follow. However, I understand your reasoning if the change was necessary to close the DR. Hopefully some kind person will fix the delreq handler so that this isn't required.
As mentioned, I had not originally noticed that you were an admin and wrongly assumed you were an ordinary user, possibly "helpfully" tidying things up! That's why I'd asked Ellin Beltz to contribute, since she's an admin- with more assumed experience and authority on this sort of matter. OTOH, if I'd noticed you were an admin too, I'd have assumed there was probably a good reason for the change... which there was, of course!
All the best, Ubcule (talk) 13:35, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Why were my files deleted?[edit]

Hello! Just want to know why my files were removed? Did I do something wrong? I happened to attend the the Film Festival in Krakow where Cumberbatch was at last May 10. I took the photos myself with my camera. Here are my tickets: Alextheweirdo (talk) 09:28, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:ARA Belgrano sinking.jpg & Commons:Deletion requests/File:ARA Belgrano sinking 2.jpg[edit]

I am aware that "using URAA as sole deletion reason is not permitted", in both of these case I see no reason why Press Association would not have complied with US notice requirements when they published the image, as a result the image would have not need the URAA to remain in copyright in the US. Please re-open the DR's. LGA talkedits 20:40, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Alfredo Zitarrosa 1974.jpg[edit]

As above, there is nothing to suggest this image has ever been PD in the US and needed the URAA to have it's copyright re-instated. LGA talkedits 20:51, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

File:Gabriel Garcia Marquez 4.jpg[edit]

Dear Admin Denniss,

Would you be willing to mark this image and pass or fail it? I am not sure if it dates to the 1980s or to 2005 or who took the picture but flickr account owner says in the 9 more comments section of the source that he finally added this photo to his collection. His other images on his account seem to be ARR. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 21:42, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Cover Images[edit]

Dear Denniss,

I assume that most of these cover images are free for Commons use and not copyrighted images. If not, someone should consider filing a mass DR to images with no COM:OTRS tickets. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:31, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Image for Jan Johnstone[edit]

I notice that you've deleted images "Jan Johnstone" because you found them on the web.  If you'd bothered to follow procedure and notify my that you intended to delete the images, I would have explained to you that I emailed the person in question and, in order to obtain appropriately licensed images for Wikimedia use, asked them to publish one of the photos on Flickr.  They responded by being kind enough to post all of the images from their website on Flickr with the required CC BY-SA license (as indicated in the attribution on the uploaded image).  If absolutely necessary, I could even forward the email (sent from the email address listed on their website) where they advised me of that Flickr address where they published the photos.  Why wouldn't you put a message on my talk page, asking about it, before running all over Wikipedia/commons/my user page and deleting images?  Who R you?

Deleting my first contribution[edit]

Hi, I don't understand why you deleted my first contribution to the Wikimedia Commons.

The image was my creation it does not breach copyright and I released it to the Public Domain. Why did you delete it? It had no content that could be considered offensive.

Rupert. PS I was just about to upload a series of another image that I had spent 2 days creating but now I don't think I will bother. Not a good way to encourage new users.

Hi Rupert I am more also coinciding with your issues as well. I had posted also into wikipedia many Radio and information and they deleted it. Is the first time I do Radio in 22 years as a Queen Fan and I have to be angry about I would use my own methods of creations and other sites as well. They push that way to do so and I am a local student which is now not recommending wikipedia. Such as really awkward reports. As well.

Andrés Ardito. if you delete the page I would go on legally issues and there are many ppl angry with these issues.

About File:Ouidah banner.jpg[edit]

You send me a message because of a problem with source informations about File:Ouidah banner.jpg . I don't see the problem with this file. You have the name of the source file in wikimédia commons (maybe you needed a link ? I just make one) and authors of the file are written. What's wrong with this file ? It's not clear for me …

Also, if you know an equivalent to DerivateFX that doesn't work anymore to upload derivative work faster, it would be helpful for me and for wikimédia commons, it's a pain to copy information from the source to the derivative work, and it's not also a very nice presentation.

Thank you for your answer. Inkey (talk) 14:58, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

File:Coccinelles MHR championnes 2014.jpg.[edit]

Bonjour Deniss, (je m'excuse d'écrire en français, mais je pense que vous comprendrez le message). Les choses sont très claires : le fichier vient de Flickr (CC BY-SA 2.0) : galerie. Les auteurs sont l'équipe féminine de rugby du MHR (Montpellier Hérault rugby) dont le surnom est : les cocc's du mhr (les coccinelles du MHR). C'est donc un auteur "collectif" et je n'ai fait que reprendre les indications accompagnant la photo... J'avais dû renommer la photo car elle n'avait pas de nom (seulement un numéro). Il n'y a absolument aucun problème (et puis je sais comment fonctionne Flickr). Cordialement. --34 super héros (talk) 17:24, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Hallo, Warum hast Du die Kategorisierung wieder rückgängig gemacht? Es handelt sich ja auf dem Bild (sagt sogar der Bildname aus) um eine BE-200 an der Markierung sieht man zudem das es eine Maschine des Russischen Zivilschutz ist daher war die 2. Kategorie ja auch korrekt die ich hinzugefügt habe. Hornet Driver (talk) 04:00, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Copyright violation accusation by Denniss[edit]

You accused me here of copyright violation for uploading a what is in fact a PD work. As was fully documented on the file page, and properly tagged. I uploaded an image from the cover of a newspaper, which as noted in the description, is from,6134586 , where anyone can see it was published w/o notice, I uploaded it to commons, using the same filename as a deleted image that is also a derivative of the same famous photograph but from a copyright law perspective, it's quite a different image indeed. The copyright status of the image I uploaded is PD because it was published w/o a copyright notice, and I've provided rock solid proof that it was published w/o a copyright notice. Your reference to Commons:Licensing is severely lacking in specificity. --Elvey (talk) 08:12, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

This copyright claim is irrelevant if the basic image was never free or had it's copyright restored. Uploading an image again that was deleted in a DR borders vandalism. --Denniss (talk) 15:07, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Asserting I uploaded an image again that was deleted in a DR borders on lying. I uploaded a different image, and you know it. --Elvey (talk) 07:42, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Not a URAA case?[edit]

Hi Denniss... I hope you are well. You speedy kept Commons:Deletion_requests/File:1935_Reid_Pictorial_Map_of_Edinburgh_and_Leith,_Scotland_-_Geographicus_-_Edinburgh-reid-1935.jpg citing URAA policy... However, I don't understand why you consider it a URAA case? URAA "restored copyrights in the U.S. on foreign works if that work was still copyrighted in the foreign source country on the URAA date." This is not the case, as far as I can tell, for that file. That file never had lost its US copyright, and was never PD in the US. According to the Hirtle Chart, this seems to fit the line in the section "Works First Published Outside the U.S.", "Solely published abroad, without compliance with US formalities or republication in the US, and not in the public domain in its home country as of URAA date[3]" , for which the copyright term is "95 years after publication date". Could you please explain the fault in my reasoning? Cheers, Storkk (talk) 15:52, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

The question has basically been answered as best as it probably will be given the WMF's position, but I would still appreciate your thoughts if you would be so kind as to give them. Cheers, Storkk (talk) 20:55, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
It seems plausible the image is still copyrighted in the US, and not via the URAA. I'll reopen the deletion discussion assuming that Denniss doesn't object. Kaldari (talk) 03:12, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Flamenco Dance[edit]

Hello! :) Why do You think, that Mexi Molnar' image: "Flamenco dance" is out of scope and no usable in education? We, the Hungarian community are missing this Photograph very painfully! ... SZERVÁC Attila (talk) 03:59, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Flickr review procedure[edit]

Hi Denniss. With respect to this DR, I have been a file reviewer for some time, yet was unaware that "all Flickr images have to undergo the standard review procedure". Could you link me to the policy that states all Flickr files without having a standard review procedure should be deleted, and the policy that defines what the specific procedure is for Flickr?

I would appreciate the file in the above DR being undeleted and nominated on the basis of being out of scope. This was not discussed in the DR and was not the basis of the nomination, so your deletion appears to be based on your opinion of the educational value of the image alone. I would like the opportunity to put the value of the photograph in context of the stage production it was part of, and the background of the producer and the photographer as a well established professional in the arts and film production. Thanks -- (talk) 08:07, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

All Flickr files have to undergo review by placing {{flickrreview}} below the license tag and waiting for a bot to review. See also Commons:Flickr files. I won't undelete the clearly out of scope image: bad quality, low res, out of focus and misleading filename.--Denniss (talk) 08:14, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
  1. I shall have to spend my volunteer time and that of other going to UNDEL then. To be clear on the issues you have raised in this user talk page thread, these were not raised, nor discussed in the DR. You have not given me any opportunity to respond to them before deleting the file based on your personal opinions of quality and scope. In particular the claim of "misleading filename" is bizarre as the production was called "Crematorium" which was available had you checked up on the photographer's Flickrstream.
  2. The page you have linked to with regard to Flickr files is not a policy, nor an official guideline. It states "Images which are no longer freely available at time of review should be marked as possibly unfree pending a decision on what to do with them on Commons talk:Flickr files", which has not happened in this case. You appear to be deleting based on your personal views, rather than based on the DR nomination or any of the issues raised in the discussion. I find it hard to believe you would support that as best practice for DR closures. With regard to all Flickr files have to use the Flickrreview tag, I do not believe there is any policy basis for this statement, certainly bot review is not a requirement and for restricted files or those limited to friends on Flickr this is not currently possible to achieve. -- (talk) 08:36, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Flickrreview does not need a policy page, it's a common practice and requirement. If the license is not verifyable unreviewed images will be deleted. You are always crying/asking for a policy page, that sound more like a german bureaucrat than an experienced wikipedian.--Denniss (talk) 08:56, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Your personal attack is unwarranted. Asking an admin for a policy basis for their actions is not "crying". As you have resorted to petty personal attacks rather than dealing with the issue of a non-policy based deletion, I guess it is pointless asking you to explain your actions any further on this talk page.
By the way, I am a volunteer here on Commons, not writing as a Wikipedian asking about Wikipedia policies.
Clarification, in order to not associate myself with an above comment. I do not claim to understand your dismissive comment about German bureaucrats as opposed to one of any other nationality, that appears to be an unnecessary and unhelpful stereotype to raise in your capacity as a trusted administrator. -- (talk) 12:10, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Blocking of LibDutch[edit]

Hi, I'm not here to complain about the block or anything like that but you might be interested in this dossier. Other sockpuppets have edited the same file as LinDutch did as well. However, I have another question, you also blocked Babylon 2000 and he is also a sockpuppet of course but he is listed here. One of the other sockpuppets has edited the same file as well. Do you think that those cases are releated? And maybe we should block the other socks as well. Maybe we should also protect the file? I am looking forward to your awnser!.

Wiki Loves Earth 2014 - Ein sichtbarer Wiki-Beitrag für den Naturschutz[edit]


Hallo ,

vor gut einer Woche endete der zweimonatige Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth. Du hast daran aktiv teilgenommen und wir möchten Dir dafür herzlich danken.

Mit rund 14.500 Fotos hat Deutschland einen Anteil von 20 % an diesem internationalen Projekt erbracht, an dem sich 15 Länder beteiligten. Sehr erfreulich ist die hohe Zahl an 729 Teilnehmern allein in Deutschland. Einen Überblick zu den Fotos und Teilnehmern findest du auf unserer WLE-Projektseite.

Gegenwärtig ist die deutsche Jury dabei, diesen wertvollen Fotobestand zu geschützten Naturlandschaften und Naturdenkmalen zu sichten. An diesem Wochenende wird in Hamburg die entscheidende Jury-Sitzung stattfinden. Wir wünschen auch Dir mit Deinem Foto-Beitrag dabei viel Glück und Erfolg.

Der nächste Fotowettbewerb steht bereits vor der Tür. Im September findet nun schon zum vierten Mal der Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments statt, wo die Kulturdenkmale im Vordergrund stehen. Doch du musst mit dem Fotografieren nicht bis zum September warten. Vielleicht kannst du den Sommer nutzen um entsprechend den offiziellen Denkmallisten geeignete Motive aufzuspüren. Ebenso kannst du gerne dabei helfen, die hochgeladenen Fotos zu kategorisieren oder in Wikipedia-Artikel und Listen einzubinden.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Noch ein Hinweis: Du kannst zukünftig bei den Fotowettbewerben gerne auch mehr Fotos hochladen. Eine Begrenzung auf nur ein Foto gibt es bei Wiki Loves Earth bzw. Wiki Loves Monuments nicht.

Viel Spaß dabei wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 12. Juli 2014)

Unprotect request[edit]

Hallo Dennis, du hast Ende 2013 die Datei Kit body protected; aus gutem Grund, denn da fanden völlig sinnlose Reverts auf sich selbst statt. Die anderen Bestandteile des Kit sind nicht geschützt, da wurde auch kein Unsinn getrieben. Ich habe den SVG-Code dieser anderen Teile vereinfacht, und würde gerne auch den "body" ersetzen. Wenn du damit einverstanden bist, ginge das auf folgende Weise:

  • entweder du entfernst die protection wieder, damit ich hochladen kann; anschliessend kann es ungeschützt bleiben in der Hoffnung, dass es nun ruhig bleibt. Oder du aktivierst den Schutz wieder.
  • du kannst aber auch selbst den (von mir getesteten) Code aus der talk page ersetzen und hochladen, ohne den Schutz zu entfernen.
  • Jedenfalls kann ich dann die Beschreibung pflegen.

Eben dann, wenn du mit der Vereinfachung dieses sehr viel benutzten Bildes einverstanden bist. Gruss, sarang사랑 12:15, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Danke für deine Aktivität. Merkwürdig, wie Geier fallen Benutzer über die Dateien her und revertieren - leider ohne jeden Kommentar warum sie das tun. Vom Kit sind nur noch die sleeves neu, shorts und socks sind wieder zurückgesetzt... Warum nur??? Das wird uns leider nicht verraten, besonders Rizky Iconia scheint unbegründete Reverts zu lieben. sarang사랑 17:21, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of File:Joan Chen 20110129.jpg[edit]

Hello Denniss,

just so I understand: Why do you think this file is a case of license laundering? It is not readily apparent, and your deletion comment doesn't really help either. So please give me some background. Regards --Rosenzweig τ 16:34, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Lots of issues with images from this Flickr user, attributed to multiple different authors in Exif, multiple camera models. Has been added to the untrusted user list and all uploads were deleted. --Denniss (talk) 16:46, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, you could have pointed me to the pertinent discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Michelle Trachtenberg 3, 2011.jpg. But I found it myself.
Before transferring that file, I had looked at the Exif data and noticed the photographer's name and copyright there, but I assumed they had hired this photographer and acquired the rights, since they seemed to have organized the event. But looking at some of the files uploaded there now, this seems less likely now. So unless they confirm that they indeed own the rights, deletion seems to be the best course of action. Regards --Rosenzweig τ 17:17, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Donetsk and Lugansk[edit]

Why do you counteract to add Donetsk and Lugansk republics to this map ? --Nicolay Sidorov (talk) 04:51, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

No recognition of these self-proclaimed "republics" by anyone, they are still Ukraine. No need to present facts that are none. --Denniss (talk) 07:19, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
First, on this map both partially recognized and unrecognized states are designated (Somaliland, for example). Secondly, South Ossetia recognized independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics. Thus recognition of these republics is equivalent to recognition of Transnistria or Nagorno-Karabakh. And thirdly, these republics aren't Ukraine any more and will never become Ukraine. It is possible to try under different pretexts not to notice their existence and not to add them on maps, but it won't change the fact of independence of these republics of Ukraine at all.--Nicolay Sidorov (talk) 07:29, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

When I created Template:Nationalmuseet-license, I thought it would be a good idea for it to automatically place images in Category:Nationalmuseet. I now think that I was wrong, but you have protected the template, so I cannot change it. Please unprotect the template or remove the automatic category from it. Thanks in advance. --Palnatoke (talk) 07:02, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Usage of a category to collect all images from this source is OK. You may want to create a better named category for them like "Images from the Nationalmuseet" and place this as a subcategory of the current cat "Nationalmuseet". --Denniss (talk) 07:33, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Category:Files released by Nationalmuseet is now a subcategory of Category:Nationalmuseet, and I would like Template:Nationalmuseet-license to place files there rather than in the top category. --Palnatoke (talk) 17:30, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Simon Mol[edit]

You speedily deleted Simon Mol's public photo released to the public worldwide by the current Minister of Justice, as I described in the comments. Read Simon's story there. It was republished by many reputable newspapers, with attribution only.

Publishing on a government website is not PD, especially if the image is not made by the government. --Denniss (talk) 21:33, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Have you read the bio? The image was made by the government (they took the actual photo), and sent to all newspapers for wide distribution. The newspapers published it: "In an unusual move, his photo with epidemiological warning, was ordered to be publicly displayed by the then Minister of Justice Zbigniew Ziobro.[21]"

What is the problem? If none, please restore it and advise me.

Where on this site do they state it's a photo made by them? Ordering a publication does not make them the creator of the work. --Denniss (talk) 20:38, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Das Bild wurde gelöscht da es nur zur Nutzung bei Wikipedia freigegeben wurde, diese von Dir nachträglich bei vielen Deiner Bilder hinzugefügte unzulässige Einschränkung habe ich dort wieder entfernt. Das Bild File:A-EM 873 Segmüller Hauptbahnhof.jpg kann ich wieder herstellen wenn Du die von mir dann durchgeführte Entfernung due Einschrängung auf Wikipedia zustimmst. Ein Link zu den mehrfach vorhandenen Bildern wäre hilfreich. --Denniss (talk) 14:25, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Denniss! Mein Mentor hat mich leider nicht über das hochladen von Bildern aufgeklärt. Ich kenne mich mit den Rechtefreigaben nicht aus. Die vielen Möglichkeiten der Freigaben verwirren mich. Ist es nicht möglich, die Bilder nur für Wikipedia freizugeben? Wenn nicht, dann bitte sage mir, wie ich die Freigabe einschränken kann, auf die Verbreitung mit meinem Nutzernamen. Ich möchte nicht auf mein Urheberrecht verzichten. Möglicherweise habe ich die anderen Bilder auch schon falsch eingegeben. Beim Bild 3531 Rotes Tor.jpg ist im Text auch der Text mit der Freigabe nur für Wikipedia Artikel. Außerdem ist da eine Person störend im Bild. Ich möchte dieses Bild gegen ein Bild ohne Person ersetzten. Es ist das gleiche Bild nur ohne Person. Die Person war ein Versehen. Das Bild 3497 Niederflurgelenkbus Erdgas 1.jpg ist aus Versehen gleich drei Mal hochgeladen, obwohl es identisch ist. Ich möchte die beiden Bilder mit "Kategorie" und "Kategorie vergessen." weg haben. Kannst Du diese beiden Bilder bitte löschen. Ja! Stell bitte das gelöschte Bild wieder her. Wenn Du den Text mit dem nur für Wikipedia Artikel nicht selbst entfernen kannst, dann nehm ich es raus. Ich brauche das Bild für den AVG Artikel. Warum musste man sich für die Wikipedia Bilderseite eigentlich extra registrieren? Vielen Dank! Gruß! --LGB-ler (talk) 17:11, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Bild ist wieder da. Eine Lizenzeinschränkung nur für Wikipedia ist nicht möglich, das wird hier nicht akzeptiert, und diese Einschränking verstößt auch gegen die Bedingungen der GFDL und CC-By-SA Lizenzen. Das Hochladen auf Commons bzw Wikipedia beraubt Dich nicht Deiner Urheberechte da sowohl die GFDL als auch CC-BY-SA eine Namensnennung des Autors vorschreiben. Du kannst die Namensnenung spezifizieren, oft wird der Realname oder Benutzername eingesetzt, manchmal mit Wikipedia/Wikimedia oder Commons als zusätzliche Nennung.--Denniss (talk) 17:25, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Danke für das entfernen der doppelten Datei 3497 Niederflurgelenkbus Erdgas 1.jpg. Bitte die gleichnamige doppelte Datei 23:58, 5. Mär. 2011 auch löschen. Die ebenfalls gleiche Datei 23:39, 5. Mär. 2011 soll bleiben, weil diese Datei die Informationen in der Spalte Beschreibung hat.

Inappropriate deletion[edit]

Please revert your oddly uninformative and inappropriate deletion of File:Nsa-ant-typhon-hx.jpg. There is no duplicate in Category:NSA_ANT or on commons at all, AFAICT. You provided no indication as to what it supposedly duplicated. You should have. As Ppelleti has noted, it would be nice if the "Exact or scaled-down duplicate" message would include the name of the existing file which it was believed to be an exact or scaled-down duplicate of. Or maybe even replace the duplicate file with a redirect to the original file, rather than completely deleting it. Sometimes the "Exact or scaled-down duplicate" message does include the name of the other file; I would like to know why it didn't in the case of your deletions. Especially in the case of documents that the NSA would rather not have us host. Deletion already overridden. --Elvey (talk) 08:05, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Unreasonable administrator[edit]

Kindly explain why you have deleted my entire "collection" despite the fact that I have stated that I have permission for most of the photos and the fact that I have told all copyright holders to send an email to COM:OTRS. Most copyright holders have told me that they have sent an email to COM:OTRS and I have reflected that to you. Also, you have ignored my argument that the copyright laws of Malaysia allow for many of the photos to be used without any proper counter-argument or reason to prove otherwise. Another point is that many photos were proven to be released by the US government so unless you are saying that the US public domain is bullshit, I don't see why you should be agreeing with the user FMDS4 that "Entire "collection" appears to be unfree". I strongly request that you revert the deletion of the photos. junchuann

Template:Fps junchuann - It's frustrating when admins aren't responsive. But in this case, I think it's fairly clear what you need to do, and I see you've been to ... I don't see that your argument's been ignored. It's been refuted, at least in some cases. Unfortunately, the admins 'round here tend to be heavy handed and prejudiced against folks that have been frustrated and/or made mistakes. That sucks. Still, starting another discussion here is/was counterproductive. It seems that where OTRS received appropriate notifications, your uploads have been undeleted. You use the phrase "released by the US government", but more relevant is whether something is a work of the US government. If you have evidence that all works of the Malaysian government are PD, provide it. -- 04:35, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia uploads - choice in removal/modification of own images[edit]

Dear Denniss,
My son first started putting ship images onto wiki when he was fifteen years old. He went on to do other things after the age of sixteen or so, and now wishes that he now had taken more notice of the rules, and still wishes to put some other images in their place that will describe things just as well. Surely the Licensor has the right to modify, since Flickr allow people the freedom to modify things according to what they wish to do. I do feel that it is unfair that a person has to leave their images on your sites indefinitely, as it is as if you own them in a way, and we are powerless to modify, when my son only wishes to put some other images in their places, and leave it at that. Then there will be no further mentions about the matter. Please consider this. The main images my son would like to remove/modify were placed on Flickr under an (C) All Rights Reserved licence before they were put onto Wikipedia,and he had put copyright marks on the images. He didn't know all the small print involved, and having read it myself, I don't find it easy to digest. There is nothing I can find to say that a person has to keep the image on even if they don't want it to be there any more, it seemed more like you can do and have copyright coverage while the images are on wikipedia. We are going to find out the legalities of this, just to put our minds to rest.

Ukraine location maps[edit]

I noticed you have reverted my edit on the Ukraine location maps. The main Ukraine location map should be the one that shows Crimea as a disputed region, a counter map with Crimea shown as an integral part of Ukraine was already made.

User blocked[edit]

Hello ! I'm sorry, I don't speak german an my english is not very good.

I'm a sysop on frwiki and a recent user (but doing useful contributions) asked in february why he was blocked in Commons. His message was not correctly answered and I just found it randomly now. His username is Justinetto and you blocked him in early february for "possible sleeper/misused/hacked account". Sure there was a good reason, but I do not understand it. Is it possible to unblock him ?

Nomination and ilegal treatment - My licences are local.[edit]

Bullying against Argentinians. I am really Deniss really indeed decepointed with your issues of Creative commons. I got youtube problems and now they want to take me out my working tool. And I won't admit that. I have Hardware Oem vendor devices which I bought really on local Stores. And the percent of piracy is 25% is really pointless to nominate someone who wants to teach the goodies of Queen and music as well. And introducing what he does not whom is. Is really moreover I am male and 30 years old man. Precisly I am not a copy of others. Just snober that creates creativeness in different ways. And I need my wikipedia for using for other projects on Games designs. Own scripting abilities. Using software and Fps Creator as well. Youtube accounts Andrés Ardito are 4 for the 4 best areas I run to. Which are Radio, Music, Computers and English as well. So these are the theorical places I want to run a teaching place too. I need to do own notes and own work on radio speeches too.

Regarding your message on my talk page[edit]

Hello, regarding your message, I would like to explain better what happened during the last days.

My update on the Main Page (in Brazilian Portuguese) was proposed and discussed here, with approval of the community(including 1 admin) and only Rodrigo Argentom was against it(but he is against everything, based on that behavior he was blocked in many of the others wikimedia projects). He told me "if you change things here I will f... you to never edit here again". I dont like this kind of trash talking, so I did what I think that is right for the WLE and the Exhibition that I was realizing. It's impossible to have a good conversation with Rodrigo Argentom, it's impossible to get anything productive talking to Rodrigo Argentom. He is always attacking and discussing using "the name of the whole community", but he represents only himself.

I was responsible to organize the Wiki Loves Earth in Brasil, bringing near 1.000 new users and almost 7.000 pictures to commons. I updated the main page to promote the results of the contest and to promote the exhibition that I organized and was running until October 12. Unfortunately we was not able to promote the exhibition here because the content was reverted by Rodrigo Argentom many times. I recommend to you to ask and get more information before support this kind of behavior.

I dont want to move forward with that conversation, the WLE was finished and the exhibition as well.

I see that you have blocked this for abusing multiple accounts. Although it is certainly a suspicious, single edit account, I see no evidence that it is a sock.

It highly suspicious to create a new account just to vote 'keep' in a recently opened DR so the block was based on this non-standard highly suspicious behaviour. And there are multiple options to fake the origin via open proxies et al. --Denniss (talk) 20:42, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
I think it is very likely that Doble requested the comment, so you could say Lorenzimarcella is a meatpuppet, but the CU evidence makes it very unlikely that it is a sock account.

Socks of Zotteteen[edit]

Hi Denniss. On 17 September, Zotteteen was indefinitely blocked by you for abusing multiple accounts. Unfortunately this particular sock is not listed in any sockpuppet category. As it stands, the user is a suspected sock (multiple accounts, 5th) on en.wikipedia. Would you happen to know his other socks as it might be helpful in potentially sussing out his alternative accounts on Wikipedia? Thank you. LRD NO (talk) 03:31, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

It appears to me that it is a sock of Futbase, as Rizky Iconia and Rizky Shaimoery were blocked on Wikipedia (others being Spiraaal and Germany2014). Zotteteen1 seems an obvious alternative account too, with the same kit edits, and ignoring of editor messages on copyvios on here and on Wikipedia. LRD NO (talk) 04:18, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

CIS map[edit]

Hi Denniss, a few editors are trying to repurpose File:CIS (orthographic projection).svg. The original uploader depicted Ukraine as a lighter shade of green since as described at en:Commonwealth of Independent States they are not a full member. The map in this form became used on a number of wikis. However, with the recent troubles in Ukraine this has become a politically sensitive issue. Editors are now trying to depict Ukraine as a full member. I believe such changes should not COM:OVERWRITE this file. Perhaps you could protect and keep an eye on it?

Bilder Otto Göttler[edit]

Hallo Denniss, ich brauche Hilfe. Bin von Otto Göttler beauftragt, 2 Bilder zu löschen (Zankenhauser Dorfmusik/Tollwood 2014 von Thomas Springer/Obercrazy). Diese Bilder sind absolut nicht relevant, es war ganz einfach eine nette Geste gegenüber der Zankenhauser Dorfmusik und nicht präsentativ für diese Veranstaltung!! Diese Bilder können im Privatgebrauch sein, haben aber nichts in Wikipedia zu suchen!! Otto Göttler ist empört. Auch gleich noch zweimal mit riesiger Auflösung. Außerdem habe ich die Erlaubnis von Otto Göttler, Bilder aus meinem eigenen Fundus hochzuladen, was ich gestern getan habe, um die Wikipedia-Seite von Otto Göttler zu aktualisieren. Es ist aber sehr kompliziert. Wikimedia hat mir zwei verschiedene Formularformen angewiesen, die ich nach bestem Gewissen ausgefüllt habe. Nun ist folgendes passiert. Zwei Bilder werden von Wikimedia in meiner Diskussionsseite gemeldet: Ich hätte den Urheber (mich) nicht angegeben. Habe ich aber gemacht!! Die anderen beiden Bilder erscheinen zwar unter Otto Göttler, aber nicht mehr unter meinen hochgeladenen Dateien. was ist denn da passiert?? Ich kenne mich gar nicht mehr aus, ein völliges Durcheinander! Bitte dringend um Hilfe, danke! --Selbsteiner (talk) 09:52, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Was der Herr möchte ist irrelevant. Die Bilder verletzen auch nicht das Persönlichkeitsrecht des Künstlers und sind in keiner Weise abwertend.

Ach so, also darf man jederzeit jemandem seine Arbeit zerstören, indem man das Unwichtigste zum Wichtigen macht. Interessant! Ich dachte, dieses Forum nimmt seine Inhalte ernst! Das ist doch eine Katastrophe. Ansonsten wird ja auch um jede Richtigkeit der Informationen gestritten. Nur zu Ihrer Information, dieser Auftritt der Zankenhauser Dorfmusik war in der Auftrittsliste ganz hinten, da sind auch andere Gruppen wie PituPati mit Traudi Siferlinger, Kofelgschroa, Coconami, Zither-Manä etc. aufgetreten. Voll peinlich, auch gleich zweimal mit einer irren Datenmenge sowas hinein zu setzen. Es ist 1. abwertend, wie Sie darüber reden und es ist 2.abwertend, wenn man hier Tatsachen verdreht und lächerlich macht! Das ist doch kein Raum für persönliche Fotoalben. Obercrazy sollte mal die Betroffenen selbst fragen, ob ihnen das recht ist.
