How come I did not get a notification to add source information was needed on the image? Would you please provide me the information that used to be attached to the image so that I can upload it again? I took all of the images that were combined to make this image. I've uploaded thousands of images and I didn't know that any were missing source information. I may have uploaded it from my flickr account. Royalbroil 02:13, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

|Description=The panorama of [[w:Angell Park Speedway]] taken from my (Royalbroil's) seat at the June 10, 2007 [[w:midget car racing]] event

Please note that Flickr uses 2.0 version of Creative Commons licenses. Please also include links to all individual images used in panorama, so anybody else could verify copyrights status. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:45, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, so the issue was the 2.0 vs 2.5? I am a trusted user here at Commons, so I understand the importance and the distinction. I only temporarily uploaded the individual images to flickr in order to transmit them to Cmakin and I deleted them from flickr because I didn't want odd looking images to mess up my flickr photostream. I don't see how I transmitted the images to Cmakin should matter. I'll check in with Cmakin to make sure that version 2.0 is acceptable before I do anything. Thanks for your help with providing the text attached to the image! Royalbroil 18:48, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Upon further review of the description, note that the only thing that this image has to do with flickr is that a separate flickr contributor happened to stitch the images together. I never claimed that the image was uploaded from flickr, I claimed that I took the image myself which is true - I took all of the images that were used to compile this image. I am able to license an image differently at different places if I choose, as long as I have the other contributor's consent. How the flickrreview tag got on the image is beyond me, but it shouldn't be applicable in this case since there's enough information present on the image. The fact that I happened to post the image on flickr [1] with a different license shouldn't matter in this case - it was a direct upload from my own image collection. Royalbroil 19:03, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Not easy situation... I think you should highlight in description that resulting image was not uploaded on Flickr. Everything else looks fine for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:47, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
Sorry that you had to hear me being a whiny crybaby. I took care of it. The flickr contributor left a message on the image's discussion area stating that he allows both Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 2.0 and 2.5. I then uploaded the image with the flickruploadbot, so its license is certified. This discussion is done, you can archive it. Royalbroil 12:16, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Проблема с логином[edit]

Здравствуйте, посоветовали к вам обртиться. Возникла проблема: не удалось залогиться на викискладе под своим ником. Пришлось создать аккаунт Hugin-barnaul. Но я хочу чтобы логин на Википедии и Викискладе совпадал (всетаки, я загружаю фото, созданные мной). Т.е. как совместить эти 2 логина: Hugin Hugin-barnaul ??? Я где-то читал что параллельное существование 2 логинов не приветствуется в системе. Можно ли мой логин на викискладе переименовать в Hugin или наоборот логин на Википедии переименовать в Hugin-barnaul?Hugin (talk) 11:25, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Учётная запись Hugin уже была кем-то создана, но никакой активности с неё не было. Я переименовал Hugin в Hugin (usurped), а Hugin-barnaul в Hugin.
✓ Done User:Hugin was renamed to User:Hugin (usurped) and User:Hugin-barnaul was renamed to User:Hugin.

Belarussian pronunciation[edit]

Hello. I've found files with pronunciation of Belarussian words on Shtooka project and plan to upload them to be later used on Wiktionary (all records in Belarussian are free licensed). Can you take a look at some on and tell me if these records are spoken correctly? --Derbeth talk 01:09, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

А как правильно по-английски: Belarusan, Belarusian, Belarussian, Belorussian или Byelorussian?--Ahonc (talk) 21:53, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Belarusan, Belarusian — транслитерация с белорусского (беларускі). Belorussian, Byelorussian — с русского (белорусский). Соответственно Belarussian — точно неправильно. Если не ошибаюсь, Belarusian — наиболее используемый вариант. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:43, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Хм, а словарь Lingvo пишет

Belarusan, Belarusian, Belarussian ( о независимой републике Беларусь ); Byelorussian ( о Белорусской Советской Социалистической Республике )

Кроме того, там есть Belarussian ruble.--Ahonc (talk) 16:17, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Global account for user Brest2007[edit]

Hi, i have a global account whith the name "Brest". But on Wikimedia Commons someone already create account with the name Brest, which do not contribute since it is created. I want to unify my global account Brest with my Wikimedia Commmons account user:Brest2007 if it is possible. Can you help me about this? Best regards. --Brest2007 (talk) 09:04, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

It's possible. But I need confirmation that you own User:Brest2007 here on Macedonian WIkipedia.
Hi. Before we can do this, you need to go to your userpage on another wiki (where you have the desired username), and while logged in, edit that page to say "I am requesting a rename on Commons." (and mention your Commons username while you're there.) Save the page, get a diff, and post it here. If you have one, a wikimatrix (like m:User:Lar/WikiMatrix) also works for this purpose. All this is just to prove that you're who you say you are and make everyone's life easier. Thanks. EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:48, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Deliberately deleted images by You[edit]

Hi, could you please defend your reason, why you have deleted the images: kometa.gif, kometa-brno.gif and LTC praha.gif. You know absolutely nothing about czech laws. Have you at least tried to read my reason and §§ quotations why the content is accepteble under czech law? I am studiyng czech law at university 5 years. Do you think you know czech laws better than me?? This is ridiculous that a foreigner decide whether some content is acceptable or not. Unbelievable. I want you to get these images back, or I will report your act. --Fingon1 (talk) 21:02, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Please read Commons:Licensing carefully. Fair use (analog of quoted Czech copyrights law) files are not accepted on Commons. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:45, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
Ehm, I don´t understand your answer. So you tell me, that you will ignore czech laws under which these logos are acceptable?? Well, but this is very ignorant attitude. A propos, this is no fair use! We do not know nothing like that in Czecn republic. It is the "legal free licence" - licence that comes from Law itself and is free. I will repeat what I wrote to the discuss page of these images:

Law number 121/2001 Sb. (Author law) lex specialis to Civil code (40/1964 Sb)

§ 31


§31 (1) Do práva autorského nezasahuje ten, kdo

a) užije v odůvodněné míře výňatky ze zveřejněných děl jiných autorů ve svém díle,

b) užije výňatky z díla nebo drobná celá díla pro účely kritiky nebo recenze vztahující se k takovému dílu, vědecké či odborné tvorby a takové užití bude v souladu s poctivými zvyklostmi a v rozsahu vyžadovaném konkrétním účelem,

c) užije dílo při vyučování pro ilustrační účel nebo při vědeckém výzkumu, jejichž účelem není dosažení přímého nebo nepřímého hospodářského nebo obchodního prospěchu, a nepřesáhne rozsah odpovídající sledovanému účelu;

vždy je však nutno uvést, je-li to možné, jméno autora, nejde-li o dílo anonymní, nebo jméno osoby, pod jejímž jménem se dílo uvádí na veřejnost, a dále název díla a pramen.

§31 (2) Do práva autorského nezasahuje ani ten, kdo výňatky z díla nebo drobná celá díla citovaná podle odstavce 1 písm. a) nebo b) dále užije; ustanovení odstavce 1 části věty za středníkem platí obdobně.

Translation to English

Section 31


Section 31 (1) Does not violate the copyright he, who

a) use in a reasoned extent published extracts from the works of other authors in his own work,

b) use excerpts from work or small whole works for the purposes of criticism or review relating to such work, scientific or professional development and such use is in accordance with honest practices and to the extent required by the specific purpose,

c) use the work for illustrative purpose of teaching or scientific research, whose purpose is not achieving the direct or indirect economic or commercial benefit, and not the extent appropriate to their purpose;

always should be noted, if possible, the author's name, unless it is a work of anonymous, or the name of the person under whose name the work gives the public, and the name of the work and source. (in our case the name of the club and his internet page).

Section 31 (2) Does not violate the copyright also he, who use further the extracts from works or small whole works, quoted in paragraph 1 point. a) and b), the provisions of paragraph 1 after the semicolon shall be applied accordingly.

In case, you will ignore this too, where can I complain about this nonsense? --Fingon1 (talk) 06:58, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Nowhere. What you quote are "Fair-use"-like permissions for quotations. We don't allow that here. Period. The point is that we want free images, not images subject to a number of usage conditions. Note that the paragraphs you quote restrict uses to "purposes of criticism", "illustrative purposes, teaching or scientific research", non-commercial only. That is not free at all. We don't allow "fair use". Lupo 07:42, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Deletion of EVE[edit]

I would like to know why you have deleted Image:EVE_(Wall·e).PNG. This was not a photograph of a movie poster, a screenshot, a videogame, a drawing, or whatever. It is a photograph of a model of the character. Should we delete this because Pikachu and Clefairy are painted on the plane? Or delete this because the person is disguised as a copyrighted character? Or delete this because the parade includes figures of copyrighted characters?

I believe you have gone way belong the guidelines by deleting the EVE picture, and I request that you restore it. Leptictidium (talk) 15:52, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

See Commons:Derivative works for details. Please nominate files you mentioned for deletion. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:54, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Deletion request[edit]

When will the "Delition Request" be taken away from Image:WesternLowland.gorillas.JPG? I have already changed the license from Flickr from "all rights reserved" to "Attribution". I'm the owner of the photo, so no problems.

Please fix license on image (should be {{cc-by-2.0}}) and add {{flickrreview}} into description. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:57, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Can you help me a bit. I'm not very experienced with Commons. Could you please put back the picture Lecture at Output.jpg involved Yuri Landman on wikipedia? This request is nonsense. There are no rights on the pic shown on the screen at all. I've no understanding of all your GNY Free etc etc, but I took the photo's of the guitars myself and they are totally right free to use for your websites. Thank you very much. I will try upload it myself again also. Best wishes, Yuri Landman

Please blank slide on the screen. Otherwise your photo is Commons:Derivative works. I'll nominate it for deletion again. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:39, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Нет, не исчезнет. Для Image:Gosprom_1_May.jpg - готово, а в Image:Bronepoezd_ed_ros.jpg пусть останется (для истории загрузки). В любом случае дубликаты в истории не являбтся копиями файлов, да и удалённые версии всё-равно хранятся. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:53, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Что делать?[edit]

Привет, Женя!

После проблем с фотографиями белорусских памятников (Бронная Гора) я немного читал, как там с авторским правом, и понял, что всё сложнее... (Кстати, большинство украинских памятников тоже надо удалить, украинское авторское право тоже не знает свободы панорамы.) Вот, есть кадр макета (Image:Model of Brest in 17th-19th century - Artmuseum Brest.jpg) в Брестском художественном музее, который явно не соответствует требованиям белорусского законодательства. У меня скоро будет возможность связаться с авторами макета, хочу их уговорить дать согласие, что фотка есть на Коммонсах. рос сейчас такой: Как это должно формально выгладить? Для Коммонсов наверно устное согласие недостаточно, правда? Вот, вечный вопрос: Что делать?

Всего доброго --C.G. (talk) 20:19, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

К сожалению, проблема со свободой панорамы во всех странах бывшего СССР.
Надо попросить авторов макета написать, что они согласны на лицензирование этого снимка (а лучше всех снимков включая будущие) согласно условий свободных лицензий и отправить в Commons:OTRS. Образцы разрешений можно увидеть на Commons:Email templates. К сожалению, на русском нет.
На снимок я пока добавлю {{no permission}}.

This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Unofficial_Coat_of_Arms_of_Pinsk_District,_Belarus.png. 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. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multilicense GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Не появляются правки в статье при исправлении сецкии[edit]

Я вот, наверное, что-то не понимаю, но почему при исправлении секции Commons:Changing username/usurp requests, мои правки не появляются в основной статье - Commons:Changing username?

May I ask you why did you delete this file? This is a portrait which owned by the son of Jeno Ban, it is in the ownership of the family. What else does it need to exist in Commons? --Zimmy (talk) 18:19, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

You need to obtain permission from son of Jeno Ban (if he is photographer). See also Commons:Email templates. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:09, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

It was his son who uploaded. Twice. It was deleted twice also. Please undelete, if possible, and tell me or him what to fill yet. --Zimmy (talk) 18:06, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Will be good idea if his son will use Commons:Email templates. In current resolution/quality image seems as any other thumbnail randomly taken from Web. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:42, 16 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi. You deleted Image:Usaf-laser.jpg, which was US government work. What for? /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 18:49, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

If you check the deletion log of that image you'll see it's "Missing essential information: source, license and/or permission: since November 7, 2008" Best regards, --Kanonkas(talk) 18:52, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
What was missing? Source? According to google, it was transferred from enwp. Probably the source url was given there. Have you checked it? /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 18:56, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
This is original image description (before added no source):
== Opis ==
Laser (USAF) 


== Licensing ==
Image is not available on English Wikipedia.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:40, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
So you deleted a free US government image just because wikipedia deletes its files. Very poor record keeping. That is the problem here. Is not that stupid? /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 15:56, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Could you please notice that description doesn't contain information about image source? How it's possible to verify that this is free US government image? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:00, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Information on the origin might very well have been in the file on enwp. Years ago some wikipedian scoured US government sites and uploaded a file to english wikipedia. Then someone transferred it to commons without any details. Then the great deletion machine of wikipedia starts. First someone deletes to original file on enwp. Then you delete it here because records are missing. Is not that plain stupid? /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 16:08, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Please read Special:Upload carefully. It's responsibility of uploader to provide all source information.
There was discussion to give Commons administrators right to look into deleted images on other projects, but AFAIK this was not implemented in software.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:13, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
The uploader gave his source. A source inside the wikimedia system. And now system administrators are deleting such images just because something "was not implemented". It is difficult to motivate people to upload material when stuff is deleted because the system deletes records or because it cannot take the effort to look up a reference. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 16:23, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
English Wikipedia is not source of this particular image. It was teken from somewhere else. And external source must be credited by Commons uploader. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:26, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Probably the first uploader had provided details. Probably the person transferring it to commons was not properly instructed and/or his upload was not properly checked. Anyway with wikipedia destroying records we cannot tell. Is not that stupid? Would it not be wiser to stop deleting and assume good faith until you can check wikipedia records? Such records are still being destroyed - make copies and keep them! /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 16:36, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
CommoneHelper provide this possibility. Please don't use phrase Is not that stupid? in this discussion. 3 times is enough.
Please not that verifiable source is requirement for all files uploaded on Commons. Good fauth can't replace it.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:47, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
"Probably this, probably that"... No, neither was the case. The original upload at en-WP just said "Laser (USAF)" in 2003, then in August 2004 someone added "{{unverified}}" (which since then has been moved to no source), and in November 2004 an IP replaced that by the PD-USGov tag. That's it. (BTW, no records are destroyed. It's all still visible for admins at en-WP. Though I agree it can be a problem for non-admins. Whence the suggestion that Commons-admins should be able to see the history and contents of files deleted at other projects.) Lupo 16:57, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
The only source in the history of the image on wikipedia is "Laser (USAF)" - Sorry, thought i could help a bit to get it restored, but I got nothing. J.smith (talk) 20:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Diti’s RFA[edit]

Thank you for your trust

Dear EugeneZelenko,
Thank you for your support on my request for adminship, here at Commons. Now that I am a new sysop, I plan on starting small, closing obvious (to my eye) deletion requests at first, getting bolder with experience as and when my contributions here intensify. As a contributor, I look forward acquiring professional photography/video skills and equipment, that will allow me, one day, to proudly help Commons to be better (I would like to obtain my Master's degree while in Antarctica, more free videos and photos of this place would be truly great). Waiting for this moment to happen, let me address you once again my warmest thanks for your trust and your support in my successful request for adminship, that received 100% of Symbol support vote.svg support votes.
I do feel the tools given to me will be useful for the project as well as, obviously, for me. And even for you: besides questions regarding templates (about parser functions for example) and licensing, I will be henceforth there at any moment to perform administrative tasks like deletions, interventions on protected pages, and the like. You just have to ask me on my talk page or by IRC at #wikimedia-commons, and I will normally be glad to honor your request.

Good day, EugeneZelenko. I was wondering if you could take a look at this, maybe you know more of this here? For now it seems very likely that we have an impersonator here with sockpuppets. --Kanonkas(talk) 14:45, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Просьба Zimin.V.G.[edit]


У меня просьба к Вам. Дело в том, что я несчастный обладатель целых двух учётных записей на коммонс: Zimin Vas и Zimin.V.G.

Сейчас вообще пишу Вам будучи отлогиненым. Имя учётной записи Zimin.V.G. совпадает с моим Zimin.V.G. в ru разделе где я наиболее активен а также и во всех других разделах где имеется мой вклад. Однако на коммонс я давно потерял пароль от учётной записи Zimin.V.G. и поэтому объеденить учётную запись не мог. Давно завёл аккаунт Zimin Vas, с него и вношу свой посильный вклад: загружаю свои фото, расставляю категории. Можно ли с целью объединения учётных записей переименовать учётную запись Zimin.V.G. в Zimin.V.G. old, а учётную запись Zimin Vas в Zimin.V.G.? 07:12, 15 December 2008 (UTC) P.S. Прийду домой, залогинюсь с Zimin Vas (пароль в блокноте дома) и подтвержу Вам, что я и есть и Zimin Vas и Zimin.V.G. P.P.S. Вариант с восстановлением пароля я пробовал, но тщетно - видимо указал при регистрации ящик ныне недоступный. 07:15, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Да, можно. Для формальности ещё стоит подтвердить это в русской Википедии (на личной странице или в комментарии к правке в ней). --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:45, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi. I'm still waiting to have the username usurped. I posted the crosslink on the usurp requests page several days ago. Timmeh37 (talk) 00:24, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Counting votes[edit]

Aren't "unfortunate political considerations and cultural differences" one of the myriad reasons we don't vote - on RFAs in particular?  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:32, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

I didn't vote because of experience with OsamaK bot's requests. However I don't feel that anti-logo reasoning is right. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:36, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Err... what he's saying is that you decided based on a pure vote and didn't take into consideration the arguments. In particular, there were 3 of the "votes" had not actually articulated any reason. J.smith (talk) 19:33, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that is indeed my meaning. Apologies for any lack of clarity.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 21:29, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't think we require to justify votes. Otherwise many of my supports votes should be invalidated :-) However, it's good idea to request clarifications of votes during voting period. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:04, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Indeed yes. That is why I (almost) always provide justification. Particularly in contentious RFAs, it is important, I think, to not count votes. The Wikimedia projects have a long tradition of not voting on such things - the strength of arguments should be weighed primarily. That is the bureaucrat's job - if it were not, we would have no need for them as all decisions could be tabulated by anyone, or indeed even tabulated by MediaWiki, and implemented automatically. Luckily, we do not vote, and bureaucrats do not count votes. Or, at least, that was my understanding.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:09, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
I think Commons:Administrators#Requests for adminship clearly tells about counting. Otherwise there are many open possibilities to misinterpretations and abuses. Of course, sock-puppets should not be taken in account. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 17:02, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

May I please state my opinion? This image has nothing to do with politics. It also has nothing to do with anti-logo images. We cannot compare this image with any other image from anti-logo category simply because this particular image is about the country, in which killing her innocent civilians is an every day occurance. This is a hate propaganda image from the beginning to the end starting from the name of the file. Commons should be an educational tool. How this image could educate? If somebody from let's say hezbollah </small or somebody from hamas will see this image, he could read it as a green light to commit a homicide bombing or fire a mortar toward schools and hospitals.And why not, if even Commons with its supposedly neutral point of view displays such inflammatory images during never ending terrorists attacks? No, this image has nothing to to with politics. This image's creator knew exactly what he was doing while creating and uploading the hate image. IMO he cannot be administrator no matter how many good contributions he has because he crossed them all out with this single image.You decided right, Eugene!--Mbz1 (talk) 19:39, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Евгений, добрый день! Мне порекомендовал к Вам обратиться Андрей Бутко.

На мою страницу обсуждения написала сообщение участница, занимающаяся оформлением категорий о биологических таксонах. Насколько я понимаю, у нас с ней разные точки зрения на то, как это предпочтительно делать. Поскольку моё (не)знание английского языка не позволит мне с ней общаться, я хотел бы попросить Вас быть переводчиком в нашем диалоге (если, конечно, он состоится и если это не будет обременительно для Вас). К тому же Вы, как человек с опытом, возможно, в курсе, существуют ли какие-то договорённости по этому поводу. С уважением, Павел. — Cantor (talk) 19:12, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Попробую, но не биологическую научную тематику :-)
Участник/ца спрашивает, почему в категорий Commons добавляются интервики на категории, а не на статьи. Насколько знаю, строгих договорённостей не существует. И вообще по-хорошему, во избежание недоразумений, лучше статьям ссылаться на статьи, а категориям - на категории. Особенно для родов, семейств, отрядов и т.д.

Thank you. Ulrich von Beck (talk) 13:41, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Before we can do this, you need to go to your userpage on another wiki (where you have the desired username), and while logged in, edit that page to say "I am requesting a rename on Commons." (and mention your Commons username while you're there.) Save the page, get a diff, and post it here. If you have one, a wikimatrix (like m:User:Lar/WikiMatrix) also works for this purpose. All this is just to prove that you're who you say you are and make everyone's life easier. Thanks. EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:38, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I have question is it okay to run a bot without a flag while waiting for a flag? I will keep it under the one edit per minute?

Best regards, Abigor talk 16:59, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

If you plan mass edits will be good idea to wait for flag. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 17:00, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
No I was busy with a category but we had a power failure. I want to finish that category its now just half done.. After that I will wait on the flag. Is that okay?
You could use User:CommonsDelinker/commands before receiving bot flag. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Derby War Memorial[edit]

Thank you for your comment on the image of the Derby War Memorial on "My talk" page. Is this the way I respond to you?

I hope that I have now shown that the photograph was my own and that it can be issued in the "public domain".

I am new to Wikipedia but hope I have corrected things correctly

In the comment just made about the Derby War Memorial I think I should have signed off to identify myself.

Sir Frederick Currie.jpg[edit]

Thank you EugeneZelenko. There was certainly no edit tag on the file I was looking at, but your reply led me to wonder if there is another file with the same name. Yes, I found it. Originally I followed a Wikipedia trail to and there is definitely no edit tag there. After your reply I used Google and found which is almost identical, but it does have an edit tag.

Surely it causes unnecessary confusion to have two files with the same name, File:Sir_Frederick_Currie.jpg, and almost identical appearance. Is this a problem Wikipedia should address? Apuldram (talk) 22:26, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

File shown in English Wikipedia is file from Commons. This fact reflected in This is a file from the Wikimedia Commons. The description on its description page there is shown below. shown below file.
Absence of edit button and text Create this page instead means that local description on English Wikipedia doesn't exists (and definitely should not).
Probably MediaWiki implementation of shared files repositories should reflect things more transparently for users.

Віленская беларуская гімназія[edit]

Прывітаньне. Загрузіў некалькі здымкаў з матэрыялаў пра Віленскую беларускую гімназію (усе яны ў Category:Belarusian gymnasium in Vilna), але ня ўпэўнены ў назьве катэгорыі і ў бацькоўскіх для яе, таму катэгорыю пакуль не ствараў. Калі гэтая назва будзе добрай, то можна яе і пакінуць, а знойдзецца лепшая, то можна і зьмяніць. Адзінае, пракалоўся ў пары назваў для файлаў, але на жаль, ужо не зьмяніць. —zedlik (talk) 19:15, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Мяркую, што назва нядрэнная, калі не ўлічваць магчымых спрэчак наконт Vilna (прыклад можна пабачыць у en:Talk:Vilnius). Мяркую, будзе лепей выкарыстоўваць польскае Wilno, як афіцыйную назву гораду ў большы час існаваньня гімназіі. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:49, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Для мяне асабіста Vilna-Wilno не прынцыпова, але як лепей зрабіць з бацькоўскімі катэгорыямі? Адна будзе Vilnius, а пра беларускую адукацыю як згадаць? Было б добра кшталту Category:Belarusian Education, але яна зблытаецца з Category:Education in Belarus. Тая самая праблема, дарэчы, і тут: be-x-old:Абмеркаваньне:Віленская беларуская гімназія --zedlik (talk) 16:09, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Наколькі ведаю, у Commons прынята называць падобныя катэгорыі па краінах/гарадах. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:17, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Ага, ну тады напэўна хай так і будзе. Дзякуй! --zedlik (talk) 14:27, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Could you please explain more fully...[edit]

The record shows you deleted File:Governor Mangal visits Garmsir bazaar.jpg and File:Children at Helmand PRT water tower in Lashkar Gah.JPG.

The uploader took the photos himself. Could you please restore the images, and explain what you thought was missing?

Thanks! Geo Swan (talk) 15:04, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, both images contains PRT press office in author field. So permission is required in this case. Licenses were missed in both cases.
File:Governor Mangal visits Garmsir bazaar.jpg is also in small resolution (500×375).
EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:01, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
I left the uploader an explanation of the deletion. Can I ask you to weigh in, and correct that explanation, if you think it is incorrect or incomplete? Thanks! Geo Swan (talk)
I think you should also mention that images must have license. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:40, 15 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi Eugene! Could you please delete this duplicate, but cropped image, of my original upload File:8thDoW(RLH).JPG. It is orphaned and as a duplicate is not required. Richard Harvey (talk) 22:18, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, CheckUsage still works unreliably (most of the wikis is not updated for a month). I think will be good idea to wait. From other side this cropped image may be useful too. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:43, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Question on image licence[edit]

Hello Mr. Zelenko.

I am new on Wikimedia Commons and I have not much experience in uploading images and the licences wich are allowed on Commons. But I am quite familiar with GNU licences and so how can this be possible: [10], [11], [12]. Three images, of each of them the author is unknown, but these images are all under a GNU 1.2 licence which is almost impossible. Furthermore no specific reliable and traceable source is given. As I think, these images should be deleted.

I hope I could help.

Bye, Christian

Thank you for your attention! You are definitely right. I deleted two images and nominated File:Ar95.D-OHEO.JPG for deletion. It may survive, if author is not known as {{PD-old}}. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:44, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Possibly unfree image[edit]

I saw you have deleted File:Diogo Luis Santo.jpg. The same image is uploaded here 30px . I suspect the uploader doesn't have the right on that image. I found the same image in a blog on bigger resolution ( , [[13]]). What can i do?

Thanks in advance --Lapost (talk) 17:56, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

You could nominate image for deletion or mark it as no source. Both links are available in toolbox on image page. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:40, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the advise. Do you think it is necessary to put the links to the blog, somewhere in the image page for the administrator who will process the request? --Lapost (talk) 15:59, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
I think it'll definitely help, especially in deletion request. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:01, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

No source[edit]

I noticed you tagged a couple of images (example) as no source. Why? The image clearly has a source. Multichill (talk) 19:22, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Small resolution and missing EXIF may indicate that image is not own work and taken form somewhere else. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:28, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
You're clearly using the wrong template here. A source and author are mentioned, so the use of {{no source since}} is incorrect. If you think an uploader is lying please nominate it for regular deletion. Multichill (talk) 17:21, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
