Hey I am really sorry to bother you again but I don't know whom else I can address this to. Could you please specify what more can be done to prove that pictures jr_mapuku.jpg and veselin_penev.jpg deleted by you are legit to be uploaded in wikicommons so that they are finally restored. I have sent my email to on 10th March 2015 and have no reply since. Thanks

DRs from Jcpag2012[edit]

Hi, Please check the DRs from this user before deleting files. Many are with bogus reason. Thanks, Yann (talk) 11:58, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

"Apparently this tag is OK"[edit]

Please, explain: why? Where is a valid license in that files? I don't see any. --A.Savin 10:58, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

{{Flickr-no known copyright restrictions}} is a valid license tag -FASTILY 21:57, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
{{Flickr-no known copyright restrictions}} is obviously NOT a license tag, because I don't see any specific license terms there. Do you see any? Maybe you mean that the images uploaded just with this dubious template (like hundreds of uploads by "Ethically Yours" are) are in PD? So, if they are PD, then for what reason? Who is the author, have they died more than 70 years ago, or is there an other reason to believe it is PD? Or are these images CC-BY(-SA), GFDL, FAL? If so, where is the corresponding permission?
From my understanding of our policy, this template is never ever a license tag and much less a valid one according to COM:Licensing. It is nothing more than some kind of warning for re-users that the files are possibly free to reuse because no one currently knows the exact copyright status. Relying on such information goes against our Precautionary principle. You can also read from Commons:Flickr_files#The_Commons_on_Flickr the following: What this means for Wikimedia Commons is unclear, and beware that some institutions (such as the Smithsonian Institute’s Right Statement) flatly contradict “No known copyright restrictions”, asserting copyright and “No commercial use”. One must thus be cautious about uploading such images to Wikimedia Commons. So, please show me any community consensus saying that we may use files from Flickr, which are from "Commons on Flickr" without having any other evidence of free licensing and without being obviously PD; otherwise you are obliged to delete them! --A.Savin 23:28, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, for once I actually agree with you, the template is much too vague for my liking. While I used to delete files with this template as missing license, this has upset a good number of our colleagues who firmly believe "no known copyright restrictions" is an acceptable licensing status for Commons. I'm honestly glad to see that someone else agrees with me, so perhaps another community discussion is in order. I've nominated the template for deletion here.

Australian embassy picture[edit]

Hi Fastily ! How are you ? I see of you have delete my photo of Australian Embassy in France (page). This picture is mine. I take it when I visited Paris and the Eiffel tower. My car was parked just right beside the embassy. I'm not a thief and I try to illustrate lots of articles with my pictures. I put all of my photos in the public domain. Look my others pictures of embasy ==> one, two and three. Have a nice day and please, restore my picture. Supporterhéninois (talk) 13:19, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi! Unfortunately there is no FOP in France so I'm afraid this image is not eligible for hosting on Commons -FASTILY 22:00, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Abusive deletion ?[edit]

Hello Fastily, Yesterday, I requested the speedy deletion of some of the images uploaded by the user Geddara because there was a copyright violation. Some pictures were also copright violations and I planned to request their deletion. You decided to delete all the pictures he uploaded. Reason : Out of scope. Why ? Pictures of streets and public parks in an Algerian city are out of scope ? Please undelete these pictures unless you had a reason to delete them. Here is a list of pictures which are copyright violations and should not be undeleted :
