|Image deletion warning||Image:Watersnoodramp 1953 11.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.
If you created this image, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
- and you've already deleated it the very same day! Okay, so you don't want such contributions - no problem, I got the message :-( --Ferditje (talk) 11:27, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
- Hi Ferditje, I am sorry to see that you take it this way. Please note that I've just filed this image for deletion and not deleted it myself. (I am not an admin.) The unfortunate problem is that the publication of this photograph constituted a copyright violation as the depicted cover was still copyrighted, making it a derived work. I am sure that you uploaded that photograph in good faith but we at Commons need to make sure that we do not violate copyright laws. The policy at Commons is not to wait until we get sued by a copyright holder but to remove such images as soon as we notice them. At times it is possible to identify the photographer and to ask him or her for permission. If this is successful, you can upload such images again or ask to get them restored when you or the copyright holder email a permission notice to OTRS.

- I just noticed your comment at the deletion request. Please forward the details of your permissions to OTRS. It is no problem to undelete this image. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 14:56, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
I closed the deletion request early by accident, as mentioned above, and I am sorry about that. At AFBorchert's request I have undeleted the image and re-opened the deletion request to give you time to forward the permission you mentioned to OTRS. Apologies again, and I do hope that my mistake will not discourage you from contributing to Commons. Very best regards, --MichaelMaggs (talk) 06:07, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
Please keep up your good work!
Hi Ferditje, I am just browsing through your contributions and seeing wonderful images from Delft like this one I ask you to continue to share your photographs with us. Your contributions are very much appreciated. Best wishes, AFBorchert (talk) 14:05, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
Ferditje, die selbe dringende Bitte kommt von mir. Ich bedaure überaus, dass man das Photo einfach gelöscht hat, ohne Dir die Möglichkeit zu geben, die Berechtigung nachzuweisen. Ich bin gern bereit, wo auch immer zu bestätigen, dass wir uns persönlich kennen und ich Dich explizit um Unterstützung in Bildfragen gebeten hatte. Leider habe ich Deine Telefonnummer und Adresse nicht hier (ich bin gerade in Deutschland) und bei Wikimedia hast Du keine eMail-hinterlassen. Bitte melde Dich kurz bei mir. Hartelijk bedankt en lieve groetjes - ook an Henk! --RoswithaC (talk) 18:04, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
