fire truck photo

The fire truck in the photo taken on October 10th 2008 is a Walter not an Oshkosh. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.164.76.68 (talk • contribs)

Screen Shot Source

You have notified me about a threat to delete Blender249ObjectMaterialMenu.png, presumably because it has no author information. But what should I put for the author? I did not write the software, I merely took the screenshot. I have properly documented the source application; what more should I do? Ldo (talk) 02:54, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi

Hi can you tell me how this picture to add it to Wikipedia, click --Tzo15 (talk) 15:34, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi, before you want to upload to COMMONS, you must be aware of the licence of this image. You must understand that it is impossible to extract any licence information out of this link. For a first attempt, I'd say that this image cannot be uploaded to Commons. --High Contrast (talk) 15:37, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Is it possible to be public domain? --Tzo15 (talk) 16:10, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
It is not possible to choose image licences randomly. When you think you want to use a {{PD-old}}-licence, then you must proof that the copyright has expired: e.g. death date of the photographer + 70 years. --High Contrast (talk) 17:41, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
It is logical that the author is dead. Then please upload it in Wikimedia. I want to see how it will upload it under what license to be able to orient. --Tzo15 (talk) 17:50, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
You obviously did not understand. Again: PD-old does can only be used for death date of the photographer + 70 years. An example why it mustn't be possible: the photographer died in 1960; 1960 + 70 years = 2030. PD-old can be used on 1.1.2031. And do not come up with arguments like It is logical that.... It is not of interest what is "logical" for you, it is of interest that you bring evidence for licence information. And for this image you obviously cannot bring any evidence. --High Contrast (talk) 17:55, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
The picture from Helen Helmink is copied from a DVD with images from this character. On other projects, like the English Wikipedia, you see this also. An example is the character Pamela Ewing Barnes from Dallas. The picture on this page is also from a DVD. Are these pictures good for Wikipedia? Because you have give me a reaction on the picture Helen Helmink. What can I do to make it good? Bella Schutter

Source

Hundreds if not thousands of images I uploaded (and in fact, am uploading as I write this, since I just feed another folder to the Commonist) are missing {{own}}. If there is a bot which could fix that for me, that would be nice, because I most certainly will not waste my time manually adding this template to my uploads (I will try to add it to my future ones, but it is not something that seems to be in a pull-down menu on the Commonist (I'd suggest adding it to the next release)). Please note that all my files should say something like "myself" in the author column, this makes the source quite redundant (I guess I could've filled that line with "myself" as well...). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 21:20, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

No, "myself" in the author column makes the statement that a photo is taken not superfluous. This is really necessary. For a bot request: please have a look here: Commons:Bots. I am sure that some bot can do that for you. Please try to insert sufficient source information in Commonist uploads. Others get it done, too. BTW: I removed the problem tag of your image and inserted {{own}}. --High Contrast (talk) 21:28, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
I asked here. From now on I'll try to remember to fill in the source field, too. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 22:07, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Perfect! In addition you can ask here COM:PUMP as well. I am sure that you get positive results faster at COM:PUMP. --High Contrast (talk) 22:25, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

File:Chris_Turner_QB.jpg

Please restore this file. Under 'other versions', it was noted as a crop of File:Chris Turner droppping back.jpg, which was certified as being released into the public domain on December 6, 2009. The user must have changed the copyright status on Flickr since, but the original image has already been released into the public domain under a CC attribution 2.0 generic license. Thank you.

Re: WHAT?

Hello.

If you looked at User talk:Alofok you would notice that I have responded to Alofok and explained to him the reasoning behind the changes that I have made. BTW all the changes correspond with what can found in cs:Škoda 742 article (which is very well referenced and covers its subject very well) thus a user who speaks Czech on a near native level and "works on the same topic" should probably be familiar with what's written there.

Regards. - SuperTank17 (talk) 18:01, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

You understood falsely. Before you create an enormous category tree, here with Skoda automobiles. Here, some other users (without Alofok) that work on this topic are not content with your work based on personal preferences. And perhaps you can understand that such category monsters like Category:Škoda 120 L (1988 - 1989) / Škoda 120 GL (1988 - 1989) / Škoda 130 (1988) / Škoda 135 (1988 - 1989) / Škoda 136 (1988 - 1989) are not a optimal for category names. Please coordinate your category efforts with others. --High Contrast (talk) 14:50, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
If you are still interested in the matter of Škoda 742 categories then check Category talk:Škoda 742.

Matthew rainfall image

Huh? The image source is clearly stated on that page. Look lower. Thegreatdr (talk) 20:13, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

answered on your page. Please read tags. Everything you want to know can be found there. --High Contrast (talk) 20:15, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
I read the tag, and still don't understand the problem. Are we not providing full web addresses anymore, for US government sites, as sources? Is the fact it is from noaa.gov not obvious enough? Enlighten me as to the apparent change in policy, and what I can do to resolve the problem. This issue has not come up with my image uploads over the past few years...until now. Thegreatdr (talk) 21:22, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
In short: sources like the ones you have stated are insufficient because they point directly to the image (example: http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/tropical/rain/matthew2010filledrainblk.gif). The problem is: with this link it is not obvious that this image is a work of a NOAA employee. NOAA websites do contain images that are not from the NOAA but from any other non-PD-Gov service. I sincerely hope that you understood the difference. Please read again the "problem tag": It is requested that a better source be provided to make determination of the copyright information easier. Please provide a URL to an HTML page that contains this image. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 21:29, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Re: Deletion of File:Foto espadim 2006.jpg

Hi! I am contacting you as you are the admin responsible for deleting the file I list in the subject. I marked this file as a possible copyvio during the early hours of this morning (UK time, about 3am), since I found a duplicate through Tineye. A few hours after the tag, the uploader, User:Victorcarv attached an image note to the photo, stating that he was a Lieutenant in the Sao Paulo Military police who took that photo in 2006, and the site where I found it was using it with his permission. Is it possible to get the file undeleted please, since the suggestion has been made that the uploader should go via OTRS to confirm ownership of the image and creation of it. Thanks for your help!

Jesus Hates Zombies Cover

You marked the cover to my book as possible copyright infringement violation. But I OWN that image, and all of its usage, so if I post it here, how is that copyright violation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by StephenRL (talk • contribs)

You must give evidence that you are the copyright holder of it. Consider: anybody could come to say that. Go to COM:OTRS and find the correct email adress and mail an email to our OTRS-team.

Your (my !) Flickr uploads

Thank you for your message and your work for Flickreviews, I always use Flinfo for upload (very useful for geolocalisation) and I upload highest sizes ! I just hope for 2011 that flickr users will never use no commercial use licenses again !

It could be great too if there will be a cooperation between Flickr and Commons to prevent people that their files could be used on Wikipedia, they use Flickr because it seems to them that Wikimedia upload system is too complicated or they don't know anything about licensing, but a lot of them are agree to chose cc-by or cc-by-sa licenses (most of files I upload were copyrighted).

Natus Vincere photos

Hello, High Contrast! I would like to ask you about the following notification. The photos have been provided by the editorial staff of NaVi official website by email. Per my request they have also created a separate page on their website, and confirmed that they were the authors and the owners of those photos.

http://navi-gaming.com/content.php?page=wikipedia&l=ru

The text at the top is taken from the standard template on ru.wikipedia.org:

http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%92%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%BF%D0%B5%D0%B4%D0%B8%D1%8F:%D0%94%D0%9E%D0%91%D0%A0%D0%9E

Could you please let me know if that's sufficient, or if there is anything else they could do to verify the copyright status?

Looking forward to hearing from you. --D.bratchuk (talk) 13:16, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. If you have a valid permission for these images, then it will be no problem to keep them.

File:09 RV PCE 2008 Radek Zocek jpg.jpg

Hello,


(sorry for my bad English)

I uploaded the File:09 RV PCE 2008 Radek Zocek jpg.jpg before a few minutes and now there is problem. This photo was taken from the Czech webpage [1] about emergency medical servises in the Czech Republic. In photogallery is text: "Prosím respektujte autorská práva. Pokud není přímo na fotografii uvedeno jinak, můžete fotografie z této galerie libovolně použít pod podmínkou uvedení autora a zdroje (např. v podobě "foto Jan Novák, www.zachrannasluzba.cz")." It means in the English "Please respect copyrights. If the photo is not directly stated otherwise, still images from the gallery free to use provided the author and source (such as "John Doe photo, www.zachrannasluzba.cz)." (Google translate). There is source: [2], yellow text is license. Please, see the originally website. I think this image doesn't infringe copyrights. I wrote name of the author and source too. Thank you.--Midi7 (talk) 12:08, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

That sounds good. Do you have any information about commercial use? --High Contrast (talk) 17:16, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
What information do you want? The website and photos aren't official. Photogallery is public (there are 3 my photos too) and photos are collected from different people, sometimes from foreign countries. I don't know something about commercial use. I uploated to Commons 21 images from this webpage and I think it should be correct - see this.--Midi7 (talk) 19:46, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
If you do not know anything about commercial use, then all of those images must get deleted. Because commercial use is very important for free file usage. And no, your uploads seem to have some severe problems - they are not correct - equal what you think. Interesting are facts. --High Contrast (talk) 19:50, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
I don't understand this rules. Administrator of webpages allows free use. --Midi7 (talk) 20:02, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
Free use is a quite vague statement. "Free use" does not include commercial use or derivative works of these files. If you know the webmaster of this site, ask him if he would agree a free Creative Commons licence. --High Contrast (talk) 22:28, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

SasemarG.jpg

Hi High Contrast,

This image is not a copyright violation. You can read the policy explanation in the Ministerio de Fomento website.

http://www.fomento.es/MFOM/LANG_CASTELLANO/FOOTER/LEGAL/default.htm

If you don't undestand Spanish language, because even selecting English, the policies are shown in Spanish, you can use the Google translator tool. Yours sincerely.--Dura-Ace (talk) 19:03, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

There is notthing written about a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license. --High Contrast (talk) 19:05, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
So the problem is the license selection, right? Maybe I've selected the wrong one (CC Attribution 3.0) as there is not specific license for gubernamental agencies or ministeries that are not from the US... Which one is the correct for this kind of file?. Yours sincerely. --Dura-Ace (talk) 19:14, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
Of course the problem lies in the licence section! The problem is that this image was not released under a free licence, so that's why this issue is called a copyright violation. This image cannot be kept on Commons. Read COM:L and learn what is understood under free licences and which files are allowed on Commons. --High Contrast (talk) 19:17, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
OK, now I understand. I've changed the photo licence, taking into consideration the licence of another Spanish Goverment photo uploaded to wikimedia [3]. Now, I think that the licence problem should be fixed, right? Kind regards. --Dura-Ace (talk) 19:28, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
No, the problem is still not fixed. "Presidencia del Gobierno de España"-images have a special public domain permission that does NOT apply the image we discuss about. There is only one way that could keep the image: write an image to this spanish organization and ask for a free release. Nothing other is possible in this way. Read COM:L (exists in spannish, too) and accept that Commons is a free image host. --High Contrast (talk) 19:32, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Your removing of Category:License plates of Hungary.

Hello.

I would like to ask why did you remove instances of Category:License plates of Hungary. Surely you saw that there were clearly visible license plates of Hungary on those pictures.

Regards. - SuperTank17 (talk) 15:18, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

The old problem again: just because there is somewhere on the car a license plate of Hungary does not qualify such images for the categrory License plates of Hungary. As you might remember: the main subject on the image should be "categorized". The purpose of Category:License plates of Hungary would get abrogated by using this category for any automobile that is officially registered in Hungary (this applies for other countries, too). Please read COM:CAT for more information. --High Contrast (talk) 16:32, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
So if I am understanding this correctly you mean that only the pictures cropped to show only the license plate can be placed in that type of category?
Regards. - SuperTank17 (talk) 18:21, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
I think I was talking to you repeatedly about such issues. --High Contrast (talk) 21:47, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

File Green Ukraine

What should I do as the author of this map: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Green_Ukraine_-_Zeleny_Klyn_-_Russian_Federation.jpg? I do not understand this remark: "This file is missing evidence of permission". I made a change now, is it OK now? For other similar examples I have not seen the same warning?! Thanks! --SeikoEn (talk) 17:57, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

You gave as source the homepage volgota.com/sometrouble/zeleniy-klin which is obviously a copyrighted homepage. Thus you need the permission of the copyright owner. If you are the author of this map, you have to do 2 things: a) always give {{own}} as source if it is your own work b) you must state where you have the base map from. --High Contrast (talk) 19:02, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
I didn't know that, thanks for information. I will now make those changes so please check them out when you have time. Thanks!--SeikoEn (talk) 07:05, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Was the base map published under a free licence? By now, the source information is still insufficient. --High Contrast (talk) 09:23, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Other files

I had previously made several other uploads. The examples below have poor print quality and they don't have the mark of protection or copyright mark. I have scanned those postcards aged over 20 years:

Can I do anything to fix any errors? --SeikoEn (talk) 07:29, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

You state that these postcards are released under a "Free Art License" - this must simply be proven by you. In addition you have to give source and author information. --High Contrast (talk) 09:21, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Everything what is presented on these cards I wrote in File Summary. There is no sign of protection or copyright mark. Some cards have authors and I have named them. I do not know how to prove their license in other way. Every information I have is in Summary of every postcard. If in these conditions for them there is no solution then unfortunately I can't do anything else. All known information is in Summary and the active license is a presupposition only. --SeikoEn (talk) 16:54, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
These postcards are nice. I'd wish to have them kept. But whether my opinion nor the opinion of somebody else does count in licence questions. Only facts count. Why do you think a "Free Art License" does apply here? --High Contrast (talk) 19:55, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
I am not expert on this, maybe beacuse they don't have Copyright mark and they are in public use for long time? You have helped me before and I have no doubt in your actions about those files. If they are not suitable for Wikipedia they should be deleted, it is quite clear. I just thought if something can be corrected, I will do it. Thanks one more time for help and patience. :-) --SeikoEn (talk) 09:21, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

aproblems with picture upload

Greetings High Contrast! I've got a problem. I recently uploaded a couple of pictures, but soon they deleted them all and told me the file source is not properly indicated. I did'nt want to violate any kind of copyright, I was simply not sure how to upload them correctly. I uploaded them from this side here: http://vnafmamn.com/lamson_719.html I'm pretty sure these photos are free for everyone to use them.

Let's make it together, right?

  • Where is it from? Its somebody elses work/
  • Scourcefile Sourcefile is clear/
  • Source Original scource is the mentioned side above/
  • Author That's difficuilt, it was actually the vietnamese Army who madé it, but can I write this?/
  • Date of work The article I'am trying to create is about a battle in Vietnam War, the battle occured between 8. February and *25 March 1971, Thats all the information I have./
  • Description Description is OK/
  • Permission Thats the problem, I don't really know what liscense to take/

This is all I can say, it would be nice if you could answer soon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kolya60 (talk • contribs)

Those images cannot be uploaded to Commons because they have not been released under a free licence. Read COM:L for more information about licence questions. You can upload those photos on that local wiki where you want to write an article. Maybe these files fall under "fair use" conditions, that are accepted on some wikis, but not on Commons because we try to create a really free media host. --High Contrast (talk) 21:43, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Damit meinte ich, dass es auf den einzelnen Wikipediaprojekten unterschiedliche Lizenzen akzeptiert werden. Ich vermute, dass du diesen Artikel auf der dt.

Jamie Baillie Photo

Hi there,

I'm emailing because some time ago you made an edit to a article about Nova Scotia PC Party Leader Jamie Baillie. In your edit, which i can see by viewing the edit history, the photograph in the article is now obsolete. I have replaced it with the updated one, but yours still remains when I view your edits. I represent Mr. Baillie and am the owner of both photos.

Is it at all possible to delete the photo from your edited page permenantly? I don't want that photo on Wikipedia's server.

Sorry to bother you with something so trivial, but I am new to Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Milton19 (talk • contribs)

Thanks.

Which images do you mean? Can you give the links, please? Regards, High Contrast (talk) 10:45, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Venera Images

Be advised that I have provided permission links for all of these images. Please read it before submitting the deletion request! NSSDC Gallery Use Policy

"All of the images presented on NSSDC's Photo Gallery are in the public domain. As such, they may be used for any purpose. NSSDC does ask, however, that you acknowledge NASA and the NSSDC as the supplier of the data. In addition, where the source of the image (by project or as a specific person) is credited in the text, you should also acknowledge that, too.
In addition, NASA further requires that NASA images cannot be used to imply endorsement by NASA."

Clearly all of these images come from this source and clearly they are in the public domain. Please remove the deletion request promptly. --Xession (talk) 01:06, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Clearly all of these images come from the Soviet Union. The NASA cannot put them in the public domain. --High Contrast (talk) 01:07, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Clearly you did not read the NSSDC Gallery Use Policy which does not say that only NASA material is covered. It says all. Please remove the requests. The licenses could be changed to 'Copyrighted, but may be used for any purpose, including commercially.' However, that isn't exactly factual nor does it follow the image use policy of the NSSDC.--Xession (talk) 01:20, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Clearly you did not understand what the problem is: This notice is not complete - PD-NASA applies only for NASA images, for others not. And clearly you did not read the licence template that is used by you consecutively. Do this, think about it and stop uploading copyright violations. Those DR won't get removed. --High Contrast (talk) 01:23, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Obviously you do not understand that the policy covers 'everything' at the NSSDC gallery as it states explicitly. PD-NASA does apply only to NASA images and I understand that fully. However, the images are not in violation of copyright and are currently held by the NSSDC for preservation. There is no option at Wikimedia for 'NASA Held' or anything similar. What other licensing option would you recommend? As I stated, 'Copyrighted, but may be used for any purpose, including commercially' is an option. Would this appease you? Lastly, if you are certain that these are in fact violations of copyrighted material, I challenge you to prove this as you are in the affirmative on this debate and under the burden of proof.--Xession (talk) 01:28, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
You should argue at the deletion debates. High Contrast wrote down his concerns there. --Martin H. (talk) 01:53, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'd wish to keep those images. Although other DR with the same file was discussed here (for example). Xession, you seem to be dedicated contributer. So, to get final clarification, you could write an email to http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov and ask if this public domain licence applies to the Venera-images, too. Maybe an error occured and non-NASA-files are not included - as they are normally. Tell us the feedback and if it is positive, we'll store that mail here and the images will be kept for all time. I think this is the best way to solve this issue. --High Contrast (talk) 11:00, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Transcript between User:Xession (hereby known as Zachary L. Doyle) and Dr. Edwin V. Bell on January 6, 2011
Mr. Doyle ---
   These images were scanned from data that is currently
   archived at the NSSDC. All data that is not archived
   as proprietary data (data for which special conditions
   exist) at NSSDC is, by definition, in the public
   domain. These images were obtained by the NSSDC during
   the Soviet era as a data exchange (such exchanges between
   different space agencies still occur) with the intent of
   making the data available to interested parties (science
   researchers, general public, professional press). These
   images are not proprietary (i.e., no special conditions
   were specified when the images were provided to NSSDC).
   We have tried to carefully avoid putting copyrighted
   information on our site or to do so only with the
   permission of the copyright holder and with proper
   credit. There are some images available from the NSSDC
   web site (such as in the photo gallery) that are not part
   of the archived data here or for which copyrights are noted
   or possible, but these are not, to my knowledge, among
   them.

In accordance to his remarks, the images from Venera including all other images on the NSSDC that are not explicitly labeled as copyrighted works, are within the public domain. Again, I am aware that PD-NASA isn't exactly the most accurate licensing label for these images as they were acquired by Soviet spacecraft. However, there seems to be no other more accurate label as they do come from NASA and are in the public domain as a result. --Xession (talk) 20:06, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes, this is definately a valid evidence. And yes, the classic PD-NASA-licence does not work here. I think we choose a PD-author-licence - but these are questions of detail. The DRs are closed. But you must send this Email above to our OTRS-team; basically only a email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org (per Commons:OTRS).

Deleted Tatra photos

You deleted old Tatra photos which were from 1930's. The photos had been uploaded there with the information that they are over 70 years old and the author is unknown. Then you stated here that because the copyright holder is unknown, the photo shall be deleted. What?! Of course it is unknown, as the licence says. When the photo is taken by unknown and the original source is not known, obviously, there is no certain evidence about anything. For the same reason all those photos should be deleted from Commons which have been marked with a such licence. I am waiting for your explanation and instructions how to do in the future with photos taken in 1930's. --Gwafton (talk) 17:59, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

When the photo is taken by unknown and the original source is not known, obviously, there is no certain evidence about anything. Can I disagree with that? Unlikely the photo was first published on the internet >70 years ago, Or? If it was first published on the internet a few years ago the publisher will have a short protection term, so providing the website as the only source and claiming the work as free is an argument that will fail. But obviosuly the work is scanned from somewhere, so the argument "the original source is not know" is based on the laziness to not find out the person who scanned it, by e.g. asking the person who published the scan on the internet. The scanner can of course answer the question where it was scanned from and provide the source. Juding images by the online information or by the information you can see on first sight isnt an argument and fails the legal requirement to make research before concluding something as an "unknown", out of copyright work. The internet represents <1% of the information maybe, especially for old works it is necessary to consult sources that are in contact with the original paper prints. --Martin H. (talk) 18:33, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
Even now, it is extremely rare that the name of the photographer gets mentioned in advertising. So unless an old photo is signed, typically {{PD-anon-70}} applies. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 18:46, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Files uploaded by Julbert1980

Hi High Contrast. You just tagged a lot of files uploaded by Julbert1980 as "missing permission information" (see User talk:Julbert1980). Don't you think that this user and the photographer (Julien Bertrand) are actually the same person? Croquant (talk) 17:29, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Hello!
Possibly it is likely but the final proof can just be proceeded by the Julbert1980. I told him to give a statement about this but he did not react. That's strange. --High Contrast (talk) 17:34, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Hey High Contrast, I also noticed your marks for deletion, shouldn't be presumed that user good faith? Is there any reason that has led you to suspect he's not the author of those photos?--- Darwin Ahoy! 09:40, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
There are no "marks for deletion", just "no permission"-tags. I can assume good faith but maybe others can't in a few years. As long as Julbert1980 is active it is much more easier to ask him to clarify this situation. You can help in this issue if you want to. --High Contrast (talk) 16:21, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Ehehe The tags say the file will be deleted soon, therefore I called them "marks for deletion", I'm still not that familiar with all the technicities over here.
But I hate to see valuable photos as those of Julbert incurring the risk of deletion for what seems to mee to be a minor formality. What if he confirms to you that he is Julien Bertrand, what will change on the files? Or does he have to send OTRS for everyone? I have some interest in this because I myself considered writing my real name on some of my photos, but I don't want them to be deleted at some point because of that.
Anyway, you said I can help, how can I do it if I don't know the man?--- Darwin Ahoy! 16:45, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Julien Bertrand only has to make clear that that he is "Julbert1980" - that's all. Several possibilities exist: a) to give a short statement on the Userpage or b) to give as author for example Julien Bertrand/Julbert1980. That would be sufficient (for me). If one of those methods have been applied, I will remove those problem tags. An OTRS-permission would be possible but a bit much. By the way, what does "Ehehe" mean? --High Contrast (talk) 17:02, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I'll send a message to him in French, then, maybe he has not understood the problem.
"Ehehe" means nothing, it's a small laugh, like "Ahahahah". :) --- Darwin Ahoy! 17:20, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I am sure this problem can be solved easily. --High Contrast (talk) 18:16, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
The user hasn't come since 7 Feb, I don't know how much he's active there, and all his photos may be deleted tomorrow or after tomorrow. Wouldn't it be better to remove the "source missing" tags, since there isn't any reason to doubt that they are his own work as stated?--- Darwin Ahoy! 19:18, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I can undelete these images after Julbert1980 gave a comment about the authorship. --High Contrast (talk) 19:23, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
Lucky you, I have an undeletion request catching mould for almost 2 days. But if you can undelete them in case they are really deleted, I'm less worried.--- Darwin Ahoy! 19:33, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
Believe me, I am interested in keeping Julbert1980's photos but I think we must solve this authorship now. If we do not act now, somebody else could recognize this grieviance in 5 years when lots of us aren't active anymore. Can you reach Julbert1980 on fr:wiki or per Email? --High Contrast (talk) 19:37, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I left him a message on wiki-fr, but it seems that he's even less active there than he is on Commons. I'm still a bit puzzled with why we can't just assume that Julbert is Julien Bertrand, it looks somewhat obvious to me, but you certainly have your motives.--- Darwin Ahoy! 19:50, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I do not have any personal motives. Maybe you know about the Commons' licensing requirements. --High Contrast (talk) 19:55, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I didn't mean personal motives, but rather "administrative" motives. I know about the licence requirements, but I think that this one of those cases where good faith should be used.--- Darwin Ahoy! 13:12, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

File:Nail growth.gif

Hi there. I was wondering if you could take a look at what happened to File:Nail growth.gif. It seems the original uploader included a note purporting to grant permission by the copyright owner, you replaced the note with a CC-BY-SA template, and now the image has been flagged as lacking evidence of permission. Is the original note suitable or do we need to try to get the uploader to get the copyright owner to contact OTRS? It's a great image used on several Wikipedias so I'd hate to lose it. Thanks.

Please see File:Bjjj.jpg, from a user that you warned at [5]. --UserB (talk) 02:09, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

You did not warn User:Hungryhowies123 after you have tagged File:Bjjj.jpg as copyright violation. Please do not forget to do so.

File:Kairo Protest 2011.jpg

Hallo, High Contrast. Kümmerst du dich bitte noch einmal darum. News.ch hat das Bild von Flickr (siehe Vermerk direkt rechts unter dem Bild), also wohl aus derselben Quelle, wie die gelöschte Datei. Somit wohl keine copy vio. Bitte nachprüfen und ggf. wiederherstellen und die Widereinbindung veranlassen. Danke. --Matthiasb (talk) 07:00, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Hallo, unter welcher Lizenz wurde es auf flickr veröffentlicht? Die Person, die das Bild hier hochgeladen hat, gab an, dass es sich um "eigenes Werk" handelte, was nicht zutrifft. --High Contrast (talk) 14:13, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Das kann ich dir nicht sagen, weil ich als Nicht-Admin die Versionsgeschichte nicht einsehen kann und mir insofern nicht bekannt ist, von wo es hochgeladen wurde. --Matthiasb (talk) 13:43, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Das Löschen ist rechtens; ein Hinweis auf einen flickr-link, der beweisen könnte, dass die Datei unter einen freien Lizenz veröffentlicht wurde existiert nicht. --High Contrast (talk) 16:53, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Ist immer dieselbe Schlamperei. Als ich das Bild damals hochladen wollte, hatte die Software gestreikt, weil es das Bild schon gab. Ich habe mir leider den Link auch nicht gemerkt. Danke dir für deine Mühe. Grüße. --Matthiasb (talk) 15:28, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Falls du die Datei auf flickr noch finden solltest, dann melde dich und ich das Foto ist wieder im Katalog. Gruß, High Contrast (talk) 15:36, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Nachtrag: Ich habe auf flickr recherchiert und ich fand das Foto hier. Es handelt sich hierbei um eine recht gut angegebene Dateiwäsche: Der flickr Benutzer "Frame Maker" hat offenbar das Bild von facebook hochgeladen. Er weiß auch, dass der Fotograph Mohammed Abed von AFP/Getty Images ist und er weiß auch, dass er keine Erlaubnis hat das Bild unter einer freien Lizenz zu veröffentlichen. Zumindest hofft er, dass er Fotograph dies aber so will. Nunja, das reicht aber leider nicht. Ohne der Freigabe seitens des Fotografen handelt es sich um Urheberrechtsverletzung. --High Contrast (talk) 15:48, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Hallo, High Contrast Du hast mir bezüglich der Datei:F-22 Raptor - 070401-F-6701P-049.jpg auf meine Diskussionsseite geschrieben, dass die Quelle unvollständig sei und deshalb der Copyrightstatus nicht überprüft werden kann. Da ich mir eigentlich einbilde, den Link zu der Quelle angegeben zu haben, kann ich das Problem gerade nicht so recht erkennen und bitte deshalb um eine genauere Erläuterung. Mfg -- DeffiSK (talk) 17:29, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Bitte die Info auf deiner Diskussionsseite erneut lesen. Es geht um die Quellenangabe selbst. Du hast als Quelle ledglich den Direktlink auf das Photo auf der Airforce-Seite angegeben. Das reicht leider nicht aus. Die Quellenangabe dient der Nachvollziehbarkeit der verwendeten Lizenz. Da du hierbei eine "PD-Air Force" angibst, musst du auch die Quelle so angeben, dass darauf ersichtlich wird, dass der Fotograf tatsächlich ein Air Force angehöriger ist. Das geht aus dem Direkt-jpg-Link nicht hervor. --High Contrast (talk) 17:36, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

npd-tagging

Hi. Working through npd-Category of February 7th I see quite many pictures of the user Julien Bertrand tagged by you (e.g. [6]). So far they all look like private pics (vacation landscapes, car exhibition; all with same camera according to the always existing EXIF) so I wonder about the reason. -- Cecil (talk) 14:15, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, it I agree that these images with proper EXIF information are by "Julien Bertrand". But the uploader is a User called "Julbert1980". So, there is no permission by "Julien Bertrand" that allows "User:Julbert1980" to upload these delightful pics under free licences. With the help of User:Darwinius I tried to clear this issue because one can think "Julien Bertrand" and "User:Julbert1980" is one and the same person. But User:Julbert1980 didn't react on our request - as you can see on his talk page. We tried to contact him on fr:wiki as well but nothing happened. --High Contrast (talk) 14:23, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Seems, he has not been active in any of the projects since some time before the tried contact. I'll better give it some more days, as I think that both are the same person and I don't want to be the one who has to restore that all again. -- Cecil (talk) 14:38, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

File:LibyanEE-9.jpg

Hello, the picture was taken from [7], where it is public domain, why did you deleted it here? Ranbar (talk) 09:21, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello; for several reasons: a) read the deletion reason - the image is a copyright violation that appears onseveral different webpages b) the image on en:wiki is the same copyright violation without any valid licensing information c) as you can somebody else tagged this image on en:wiki as copyright violation. In short: there is no valid evidence for this image being in the public domain. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 13:09, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes, it was tagged on en-wiki because of this notice. Well, see if I can find a photo of Libyan Army without copyright violation. Ranbar (talk) 16:26, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

File:Kungl. slottet från ovan.jpg

Dear High Contrast, You just deleted a perfectly correct licensed image, although I stated this clearly on the image's talk page (which you also deleted). There are thousands of photographs made pre 1969 on Commons with the {{PD-Sweden}} license. I hope that you are not about to delete all these as well? Please revert the deletion, or at least have the courtesy to motivate yourself (here, now that the image's talk page is deleted). Thanks, /Urbourbo (talk) 17:57, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

I folloewed the deletion request. By the way: Why did such intelligent people like you did not remove the incorrect copyvio-tag if it was placed incorrectly? --High Contrast (talk) 18:01, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
At Swedish Wikipedia, it is common not to delete tags on content you produced yourself, but instead motivate yourself at the talk page. This is also what this particular tag did encourage me to do, and I just followed the link from the tag. But it seems you deleted without reading the talk page?
This is not the first time I've had PD-Sweden-licensed images deleted by admins too busy to understand the license (or too busy to question copyvio-tags). I hope for your understanding for my somewhat low patience level with having to spend time defending images I've uploaded from these actions.
Thanks, /Urbourbo (talk) 18:19, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) One might also wonder why you mistook a painted postcard (which requires a publication prior to 1944 in Sweden) for a photograph. De728631 (talk) 18:14, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
P.S.: My comment on painted postcards was a reply to you, Urbourbo. De728631 (talk) 18:27, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
This was news to me, and although I doubt it would be confirmed by Swedish law if tried, at least it was a form of motivation, for which I thank you. /Urbourbo (talk) 18:30, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
To be exact, {{PD-Sweden}} applies only to photos, so this specific image was totally out of question because we don't know the author. Please have a look at the license text on the PD template, it has several conditions, not a general pre-1969 ruling. De728631 (talk) 18:39, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Exactly which part of the tag, in your opinion, regulates that the author must be known for a pre-1969 image? I might not be so intelligent, but I cannot find it. I'd also be interested to know the legal background to your absolute ruling that a postcard (created from a, perhaps, painted photograph) would not be applicable for PD-Sweden. /Urbourbo (talk) 18:45, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
The part that says that this entire license is valid for photos only, not for painted images like the one we're discussing here. Paintings are subject to general copyright, i.e. the author's life plus 70. De728631 (talk) 18:54, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
a/ To me, it is obvious that the postcard was created from a photograph, and not a pure painting. Do I understand you correctly, that you do not believe that it was created from a photograph? If so, how do you arrive at that conclusion?
b/ Possibly, it was originally a black-and-white photograph which was manually colored before going to print. But in this case, we need to prove that the coloring was of significant artistic value to rule out the photo from the pre-69 regulations, which I personally beleive would be legally very difficult, but maybe you have further information on this as well?
c/ Also, the source web page given on the file description page clearly states that the image was a color photography ("färgfotografi" in Swedish), just for your information. Thanks, /Urbourbo (talk) 19:25, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
As to a/, it was pretty obvious from my point of view since the colours had no shading and on a close look there was a canvas-like structure on the image. And even if a photograph was taken of an original painting it is the source image, the original art, that is copyrighted and overrides any free photo license for derivative works. On that note it might help if you posted the link to your source here. De728631 (talk) 19:40, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
We obviously have two completely different analyses regarding the probable origin of the image. Maybe, then, we should let the source do the final ruling? /Urbourbo (talk) 21:14, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, you might have a point there. The source page does in fact call it a coloured photograph by an unknown photographer. And on a second thought what looks like structured paper may also be a poor scan and/or upscaling artefacts. I think we can therefore ask High Contrast to undelete the image. Thanks for your patience, Urbourbo. De728631 (talk) 17:05, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

There is no need to undelete this file: it was reuploaded by User:Urbourbo as File:Kungl. slottet från ovan 2.jpg some days ago. --High Contrast (talk) 14:38, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Wrong again; that image is a similar but different photograph, from another direction. /Urbourbo (talk) 15:14, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
What do you mean with "another direction"? --High Contrast (talk) 17:33, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
I mean that File:Kungl. slottet från ovan.jpg and File:Kungl. slottet från ovan 2.jpg are two different photographs (and, for avoidance of doubt, as you would have seen yourself if you had endeavoured to verify your hypothesis, they were both uploaded before you deleted the first one). /Urbourbo (talk) 18:25, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

All in all, I have come to the conclusion that a {{PD-Sweden}}-licence applies here. Urbourbo, if you have any questions left, contact the inital copyvio-nominator of the image here if you have any questions left about licences that are accepted on Commons. In addition, you can read COM:L for more information. --High Contrast (talk) 18:31, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Would you please also undelete the talk page? /Urbourbo (talk) 23:52, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks very much! The article in question is in the queue on wikipedia for a DYK hook, so I'm afraid to do anything to jeapordize it -- and the template specifically states that the image should not be used until it is reviewed. (Is there a difference between using in on wikipedia and wikimedia?) On the other hand, if more people will be looking at the article when the DYK hook is printed, I want to use this much better photo!

03.04.jpg

Hi! You recently deleted File:03.04.jpg based on a copyright notice of a website where it was hosted. It seems the file description (and indeed the description on the website) states that the image is from "the beginning of the 20th century", which would mean that its copyright could very well have expired -- Truskavets is in Ukraine so maybe {{PD-Ukraine}} could apply? My understanding is that a website's copyright notice applies to the content of the website, but not necessarily every image that is hosted on the site. Regards, Jafeluv (talk) 21:22, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

There is a certain reason why this file is protected. The coat of arms of the Republic of Croatia from 1990–1991 has used it in this composition. I cannot follow your rational of "an identical file with the first red field" is existing, too. If so, tag the other file as a duplicate of this one.

The reason for nominating it to be deleted was that "Licence information for each single image is missing", which is incorrect because every image has a license information.

The guys who invented English decided the word "hole" needed a "W" in it (whole). That needs to be changed in your template which I'd do except it's protected from editing. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 08:54, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for letting me know. Typing error: the "w" has obviously fallen in a hole ;) --High Contrast (talk) 10:31, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

two licences etc.

Hallo High Contrast, you edited twice on the page of Use:Slavadoku89 in order to prove some licences, sources etc, see here. The user is a mentee of mine on the German WP. She sent the necessary emails to OTRS already, see her notices on File:Winfried Petzold.jpg and File:UV 005.jpg. After my question on Commons:Forum#Hm, it turned out, that the permission did arrived OTRS yet, but there is a two weeks gap in processing the emails. So please make clear that the files will not be deleted befor the OTRS team will prove it. Thanks, -jkb- (talk) 22:10, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Hallo! Die Bilder werden nicht gelöscht - jedenfalls nicht von mir. Wenn es weiterhin diesbzgl. Handlungsbedarf geben sollte, einfach hier eine Nachricht hinterlassen. Gruß, High Contrast (talk) 19:50, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Temporary restore a file.

Hello. This file was deleted File:Moscow500.JPG http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&type=delete&page=File:Moscow500.JPG Is it possible to temporary restore file? I want to recreate this file using open source maps layer, and this file contains some unique information (path drawn on it), which can't be restored easily without access to this file. `A5b (talk) 18:34, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Uuuups. I'm too late. It was deleted again with "Replacement seems to have been created: File:Moscow500.png". Moscow500.png is created by me but I still want to compare, is new map easy to read as old one. `A5b (talk) 21:44, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Images

Those images weren't mine, i eliminated the template because he asked me why they had speedy deletion, if he is the owner of those pictures, which is Tillor87, even he has the same name on Skyscrapercity, an architecture website formum, and he is very well known there since he is a moderator. Anyway, I told him that he needs to prove to Wikimedia Commons that those are his images by providing a link on Flickr o Panoramio. --Vrysxy (talk) 16:41, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

I know that these files didn't come from you. But you acted wrong by removing the speedy-tags with such poor evidence. And by the way, all of his flickr images were copyrighted and had different Uploaders there. --High Contrast (talk) 16:45, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

A Whole lot of Images

Hi there, High Contrast. I've began working on changing source info. There are a bunch of images I've seen that have 'Unknown' in the source, so I didn't think source really mattered as long as the image was clearly in the public domain. (like an official Army portrait) It's a lot easier to do that when you're uploading multiple pictures. My apologies for that. There are some images, however, that were sent to me by the U.S. Army Chaplain Museum after I sent an email requesting them. Here's a list:

  • [File:Axton 1925 2.jpg]
  • [File:Axton 1925 with son.jpg]
  • [File:Axton 1926 arlington.jpg]
  • [File:Axton 1925.jpg]
  • [File:Axton 1921 chaplains.jpg]
  • [File:Axton 1921 chaplains2.jpg]
  • [File:Axton 1925 with son 2.jpg]
  • [File:Axton 1926 tomb of unknown.jpg]
  • [File:Arnold induction.jpg]

I think I'm missing one or two files in there, but you get the idea. How should I source those? Rockhead126 (talk) 20:40, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello! This is no problem as long as you bring the correct source to each image. Reliable sources that can prove the image's licencing are very important on Commons so that it is traceable where those files come from. I know that lots of files are highly likely in the public domain but nevertheless a source must be given as evidence. Anyway, if you have stated the source information to these files, let me know and I will remove those problem tags on the images. It is very good of you that you are interested in doing Commons-like so that we can keep these images. Thank you for that. Till then. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 10:46, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Copyright Propaganda-Aufnahmen

Hi, beim Australian War Memorial fand ich viele Farbaufnahmen von deutschen Truppen aus dem 2. Weltkrieg (z.B. http://cas.awm.gov.au/item/044589, einfach die laufende Nummer erhöhen bis 44602). Da steht zwar "Copyright expired - public domain", aber die Aufnahmen sind ganz sicher deutsche Propagandaufnahmen der Kriegsberichterstatter, die wohl nach Australien "befreit" wurden, oder zumindest Abzüge davon. Wo liegt denn nun das Copyright? Danke und Grüße Cobatfor 15:56, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Hallo! Dabei handelt es sich um eine schwierige Angelegenheit, die auch schon oft über Bilder aus dem 2. WK geführt wurde. Auch auf defenseimagery.mil findet man Bilder die unter keinen Umständen von alliierten Militärangehörigen stammen können. Auch bei den Bildern des Bundesarchivs gab es umfangreiche Diskussionen über einzelne Bilder, von denen einige gelöscht wurden, aber andere wiederum erhalten blieben. Ich würde die Bilder hochladen; letztendlich begehst du ja keine Urheberrechtsverletzung, sondern dieses australische Museum. Zumal es ja rein theoretisch sein könnte, dass die Bilder vom Fotografen rechtmäßig erworben wurden. Gruß, High Contrast 16:05, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
P.S.: Wenn du willst, kannst du die Frage auch ins Forum auf Commons stellen. Vielleich ergab sich mittlerweile eine kosistente Vorgehensweise bei derartigen Bilder. Jedenfalls sind meine Angaben (sicherheitshalber) ohne Gewähr :)
Danke! Ich werde sie wohl hochladen und dann kann jemand meckern, wer will. Herzliche Grüße Cobatfor 16:11, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Indica claramente la licencia, indico la página de donde está tomada [14], en cuya esquina inferior izquierda, indica sin lugar a dudas que tien licencia creative commons

Además, si te pasas a ver las condiciones para publicar fotos en es sitio, que está aquí, verás que son muy estrictos con la forma de publicarlas (como mucho, sacan 5 a 10 al mes)

Pick here, in down-left corner, is the license

File:Croatia, Historic Coat of Arms.svg (again)

Since the consensus about the file Croatia, Historic Coat of Arms.svg wasn't reached in this discussion, or in this one, I'm proposing another solution. Let the disputed file be reverted to the version with the first white square, and then renamed Croatia, Historic Coat of Arms, first white square.svg. Also, we should rename the file Coat of Arms of Croatia (1990).svg (which is an exact copy of the disputed file) to Croatia, Historic Coat of Arms, first red square.svg. In both files, we should leave links to the other file, in the Summary section, for those who might need to use the other file. That way, we could evade future conflicts about any of the files.--Starčevićanac (talk) 07:53, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text.

album covers

Hi! I'm owner and author of this album covers. They are free and any one can use them so why they are non-stop deleted ? Xtubedriverx (talk) 07:38, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Primarily it's because a lot of people claim to own the copyright to album covers from Metallica and other mass-market bands, which is, let's face it, highly unlikely. I would suggest you send an email to our OTRS team explaining you are the copyright holder and that you agree to publish them under a free licence which includes the right to distibute, make derivatives and use them for commercial work, all without having to contact you. -mattbuck (Talk) 10:43, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Hello! Thanks for your efforts. I have deleted the image because it is a duplicate of an existing image. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 08:16, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Non existing licence template PD-ITALIA-FILM

Hello, I just attepted transfer the File:Altrimenti ci- arrabbiamo Spencer.jpg from Italian Wikipedia via Commonshelper and I did not notice any error. Could you help with localistion of it:Template:PD-Italia-film? Is it acceptable on Commons? There are many useful files on Italian Wiki, see it:Categoria:Screenshot film PD-Italia. Sincerely --Gumruch (talk) 21:37, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello! Well, I don't know if such template is existing here, but these images seem to be reasonable. But you should post you comment here (in Italian) or here (in English). There will be surely an expert from it:wiki who knows more about this. Thanks for your support. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 18:21, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I thought the CC attribution on the Flickr image was sufficient to upload to Commons. I guess it isn't judging by your tag. My apologies. Endrick Shellycoat (talk) 21:48, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

No problem; just use this tool in future: it checks automatically if the licence on flickr is suitable to Commons and it created all important information automatically, so that you just have to copy&paste. Thanks for your support. --High Contrast (talk) 22:57, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

You have recently added a "no source" template to my file "1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS of Bob Middleton.jpg". The file seems to have the relevant information in place even though it does not display it. What do I need to do please? GTHO (talk) 08:07, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Glans Stimulation.png

Since you closed the above deletion request as a keep, what is your answer to my question? That is clearly an identifiable person in a private location, so we require an assertion or other evidence of subject consent. --99of9 (talk) 13:26, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

You are right in this case but is there any official policy for that - besides COM:PEOPLE? COM:PEOPLE is a bit too vague in order to apply in this issue and what "recent WMF resolutions" are is unclear, too. --High Contrast (talk) 14:45, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, I presumed you knew about the resolution. It is quite clear, and COM:PEOPLE was recently made stronger because of it, so we now require some kind of evidence. --99of9 (talk) 22:49, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Interesting thing with enormous effects on lots of images on Commons. According to this, File:Glans Stimulation.png must get deleted. Nevertheless, I'd rather see this resolution be fully integrated in COM:PEOPLE. What is your opinion on this? --High Contrast (talk) 09:32, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
I agree it's not integrated enough with COM:PEOPLE yet, but it is already clear enough for this image (since the Flickr account is gone, we have no realistic hope of ever getting evidence). Do you want to amend your closure, or do you want me to renominate? Regarding further integration into the policy, I am keen to participate, but don't have time to drive it just yet (and a clarification question I asked one of the board members has not been fully answered yet). --99of9 (talk) 11:35, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'd suggest first to modify COM:PEOPLE and then simply restart the DR. --High Contrast (talk) 15:47, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

File talk:John Earman and Jesús Mosterín in Pennsylvania in 1997).tif


This request is addressed to the person in charge of deleting and undeleting photos.

I read in an email I received from you the following: "The deletion and move log for this page are provided here for convenience: 15:54, 15 May 2011 Matanya (talk | contribs) deleted "File:John Earman and Jesús Mosterín in Pennsylvania in 1997).tif" ‎ ( Media missing permission as of 27 April 2011) (global usage; delinker log)." I also read something about a lack of categorization and of authorization that I did not understood. The photo was provided by myself. I authorized its use. I do not see that the photo has any problem. Can anyone tell me in simple language what the problem is and what, if anything, I am expected to do? In any case, please, undelete the photo and keep it available in Wikipedia Commons. Schnufflus (talk) 19:12, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Flagging US patent images as "source needed"?

Why are you flagging images from US patent applications as "source needed"? Is it not sufficient to give the patent ID and credit the USPTO as the source? In what way would additional verbiage give us more information? Txinviolet (talk) 18:13, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Of which image are you talking? More information can be found here: COM:L. --High Contrast (talk) 18:19, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

In general source information is here to verify the applied licence of any file. --High Contrast (talk) 18:21, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

You flagged File:Singer.Patent00326821.Page001.jpg and File:USPatent9041.Wilson.RotaryHook.figures1to6.jpg as "needs source", even though I specified "USPTO" in the source field and uploaded them as such (back when the uploader page had "Original work of the US federal government" as one of the options for non-copyrighted images). Plus, the images were obviously taken from US patent applications, which automatically places them in the public domain. This has created a big headache for me because I didn't see the "needs source" flag until the files were both deleted.Txinviolet (talk) 14:12, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
Then give clear evidence. "USPTO" is insufficent as well. --High Contrast (talk) 16:45, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of Samsaya image

Hi,

i'm working on behalf of Sampda Sharma developing her new web sites. Recently she asked me if I could change her image on Wikipedia.

You have deleted the press photo I uploaded, due to copyright violation. What is violated? The image rights belongs to Samsaya`s label "3 millimeter".

Please let me know how we can upload this photo without having it auto deleted again.

Hi, ich hatte mal dieses Foto hochgeladen. Jemand hat mal reingeschrieben, dass das gar nicht Spangdahlem ist. Ich habe recherchiert und es ist tatsächlich Sembach (bei Kaiserslautern).

Übrigens stolperte ich hierüber: File:Hubschrauber-1 2010-by-RaBoe-08.jpg. Ich denke, Ra Boe hat es mit seinem Lizenzbaustein etwas übertrieben, da der doch sowieso übersetzt wird.

you recently suppressed an picture I uploaded, thinking about a copyright violation, but it is not. I'm a professional photographer who truly took this picture and put it on wikimedia, so that it could be added to the biography of Blanche GArdin, as she asked me.

How could we fix that problem ?

Thanks for your message. I'm still trying to understand how the whole licensing thing works, to be honest.

Could you please then delete these two files (File:MegionNefteGaz.gif and File:Slavneft logo.png) from Commons, please?

Yad Hashmona

Yes. But I uploaded a smaller version for that very reason: People who use my photos without attribution...--Gilabrand (talk) 19:52, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
I suggest you to just re-upload this image on COMMONS in the highest resolution you have. Your rationale for uploading small images is no proper method to avoid image use without attribution. --High Contrast (talk) 19:55, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

You must work more carefully. When you upload images of which you have valid OTRS-permission then insert those permissions correctly. Do that for all files, please. Those files you do not have permissions, get deleted. --High Contrast (talk) 12:36, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

I am hesitant to create a site-wide template for any image from the site given that two of the above images were not restored, as one had an AFP watermark and the other was taken from someone's Facebook page. I am getting worried that I am being deceived. There are now quite a few images that I OTRS-approved based on the origin email address of the permissions statement but actual locations on their website were not provided. Additionally most are not full resolution and lack EXIF data. – Adrignola talk 15:52, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for your support, Adrignola. It is good to have a member of the OTRS team in this issue. Can you check the OTRS-permission of User:Mohamed CJ? And if there are some that cannot be reached by this permission, please nominate those files for deletion. User:Mohamed CJ states that he has a permission for all his uploads. --High Contrast (talk) 16:44, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
Even if I did apply the OTRS emails I have received to everything from bahrainrights.org, I found quite a few uploads in May from http://twitter.com/#!/NABEELRAJAB, with no permission shown to be received from Nabeel Rajab. I marked them as not having permission. – Adrignola talk 20:28, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

I found 2 sources for this photo but cannot verify if it is a genuine US Marine photo. Also the uploader gave a link to a forum which gave some extra information--including a reference number--on this picture which stated that it is a US Marine photo. I placed this link in the image talk page and it looks promising. I don't have access to irfan to verify it though...but maybe you do. If not, oh well! I won't lose any sleep over it.

Hallo, ich sehe, du bist gerade aktiv. Ich glaube, dieses brandneue Bild kann man getrost als Vandalismus/persönlichen Angriff löschen. De728631 (talk) 15:45, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Hallo! Gegen wen richtet sich diese Datei? --High Contrast (talk) 15:46, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

About "Musura Bay, Black Sea.jpg"

Hi ! Mitica-Misha is one of my students. Our sources are navy maps of the area (Romanian & Ukrainian). The ICJ delimitations confirm the Ukrainian-Romanian border Treaty of 1997, and the new ukrainian delimitation can be photographied (and I done) from the Sulina's dyke lighthouse because the ukrainian border-guards put beacons, without any romanian reaction (Romania have few boats and few gas, and prefer to conteste on the diplomatic side). --Spiridon Ion Cepleanu (talk) 08:06, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

US Government images?

Can you tell if these 4 images are from US Federal institutions? I suspect only the first is certainly US but the resolution is poor. Not quite sure about the other three.

Its a pity flickr review seems to go haywire and marks all these images sometimes. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:44, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: You're right. This USAID website says USAID established FEWS (or Famine Early Warning system) in the 1980's (ie. they have a relationship) but not who owns FEWS or runs it today. FEWS may be a private organisation today which cooperates with USAID. So, I guess the map may or may not be PD. Thanks for your comments. Kind Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 21:10, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

photos from the MAKS show

Hello!

I see that the Commons-media collection has some images fom the various MAKS-airshows on zhukivsky airfield near moscow hosted. I once saw a homepage that delivers some free photos from different years this airshow took action.

And no, I do not think of flickr, Zooomr or picasa.

Licences were:

  • CC-zero
  • CC-by
  • CC-by-sa

I hope you konw of which homepage I am talking. One example is the Klub-missile systems. I canno t find right now the photo.

THANK YOU for your help!!

I don't know how to go about changing filenames. Maybe you do.

In English "Sanitary" implies a washroom or toilet. In English this should be translated "First Aid Post" not a "Sanitary post". There is no equivalent to the term "First Aid" in other languages. Can you fix it? Amandajm (talk) 00:35, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Flickr

Hi, ich habe File:Blohm & Voss BV-142.jpg hochgeladen. 1. Kann man Flickr-Dateien beim Import auch andere Namen geben? Und 2. ist bei dem Bild die Lizenz korrekt? (die Auswahl ist beim Importtool sehr beschränkt) Danke und Grüße Cobatfor (talk) 18:33, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Hallo! Ja, flickr-Dateien kann man schon andere Dateinamen geben. Lizenztechnische ist die Datei etwas problematisch; ich kann mich erinnern, dass es eine Nachfrage auf dem englischsprachigen Forum diesbezgl. gab. Anscheinend wurde bewusst auf einen Automatismus für "Keine Urheberrechtsbeschränkungen bekannt"-Dateien verzichtet, da dies oft nicht zutrifft. Wie es mit der von dir verwendeten Lizenz aussieht, kann ich nicht genau sagen, aber ich wäre skeptisch. Gruß, High Contrast (talk) 20:06, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
Na, die Aussage des San Diego Museums dazu ist ja salomonisch: [24]. Grüße Cobatfor (talk) 21:17, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
...im Prinzip gestehen die Herrschaften, dass sie keinen Ahnung haben, unter welcher Lizenz die Bilder zu veröffentlichen sind. Gemäß dem Motto "Mach dich selber schlau" ("It is your responsibility to determine and satisfy copyright and other use restrictions before copying, transmitting, or making other use of protected items."). Naja. --High Contrast (talk) 21:35, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
Andererseits könnte man hierbei "The Museum's images that are part of The Commons are marked "no known copyright restrictions," indicating that the Museum is unaware of any current copyright restrictions on the works so designated, either because the term of copyright may have expired without being renewed or because no evidence has been found that copyright restrictions apply." auf die Idee kommen, dass sie zumindest recherchiert haben. Ich finde es übrigens merkwürdig, dass die die alle veröffentlichen (als Amis), denn, wenn ich Rechte einklagen wollte, würde ich mich an das Museum wenden, da die die ja frei zugänglich machen mit "no known copyright restrictions". D.h. sie verstoßen gegebenenfalls genauso gegen das Urheberrecht. Man kann dann nur darauf vertrauen, dass sich keiner beschwert... Cobatfor (talk) 06:51, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Stimmt! Über ie von dir zitierte Passage bin ich auch gestolpert und auch auf die Hoffnung "wird schon keiner was sagen" ist in gewisser Weise kurious, da wir auf Commons vage Verdachtsmomente heranziehen, um Bilder zu löschen. --High Contrast (talk) 08:07, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

The second photos is of a top Canadian commander. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 05:04, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello Leoboudv! Are you sure that all of these files are in the public domain due to a US governmental work? Regards, High Contrast (talk) 00:41, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: You never said anything but this is the basic source website for all the photos. Is this not a US Government webpage? Or should I revert my pass? I asked for your input because you are the more experienced Admin here. At first glance, it looks like a US Government run site...but only you know if this interpretation is right or wrong. Please respond. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:07, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Please keep in mind that I cannot be available on Commons for 25 hours per day. Well, I see a problem with some of those images above. Please consider: Just because some image appears on a US .mil-site, does not make it automatically a public domain image. An image must be the work of the United States Federal Government, for example a US service member took a photo with a camera.
To the images:

As a conclusion: I see only a problem with the two Wendy Gilmour images. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 09:01, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

  • OK, I'll revert my pass on those 2 pictures. Maybe its better to let someone else file a DR like you? I never uploaded them --Leoboudv (talk) 18:43, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
No problem, Leoboudv. A DR would be appreciated. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 22:00, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
  • I filed the 2 DRs you requested and asked that the community decide. They may have more experience than me here. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 22:43, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Wenatchee Mountains

Hi High Contrast;

Many understand the Wenatchee Mountains to refer to "the area between the Wenatchee and Yakima rivers and Stevens Pass", and not as you have described them.[25] Category:Wenatchee Mountains has an interlanguage link to the aforementioned article. Best wishes, --Walter Siegmund (talk) 15:14, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello! I received two Email of two people that told me that this category is heavily filled with images that do not show the mountains in the park itself. If there would have been a description in this category I would not have had made any edits there. --High Contrast (talk) 15:19, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
I agree that a description would not hurt, although an interlanguage link should suffice. The uppercase "Mountains" should be a clue that this is the proper name of a specific region. I'm not sure I understand why images of biota should not be included in a regional category. That said, perhaps images of biota could be better categorized in Category:Nature of the Wenatchee Mountains, in analogy to Category:Nature of Yosemite National Park. Do you think that would be satisfactory? Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 22:19, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
That's a good. I'd appreciate a Category:Nature of the Wenatchee Mountains. If you want some support by me doing this, just let me know. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 22:26, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Military people of Poland

Wieso sabotieren Sie meine Arbeit ? Wiesen sie die Namen der special forces Soldaten ?. Ich bemühe mich diese Kategorie alphabetisch zu ordnen und das was nicht dazu gehört woanders zu kategorisieren. Annonyme Photos (wo die Personen nicht namentlich genannt sind sollten in der Kategorie "Military of Poland" untergebracht werden. Wen jeder hier Photos von namentlich unbekannten und anonymen Personen platzieren würde dann kriegen wier hier totalen Chaos und prosit Mahlzeit. Wenn ich hier die Ordung bringe dann machen Sie es bitte nicht wieder kaputt. 80.171.48.106 14:34, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Ich "sabotiere" "deine Arbeit nicht". Nimm Abstand, mir derartiges zu unterstellen! "wo die Personen nicht namentlich genannt sind sollten in der Kategorie "Military of Poland" untergebracht werden": das stimmt nicht, das ist deine eigene Regelung, die auf keinem Commons-Kategorisierungsprinzip ruht. Ich habe die Bilder nun in eine speziellere Kategorie verschoben, in der sie verbleiben sollen. --High Contrast (talk) 14:38, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Ich habe Sie höflich mit SIE angeschrieben. Ich fördere Sie hiermit sofort auf Abstand zu gehen und mir den üblichen Respekt zu gewähren. Ich wünsche AUSDRÜCKLICH von Ihnen nicht gedutzt zu werden!!!. 80.171.48.106 14:52, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Ich dutze jeden auf Commons - das ist hier gängige Praxis unter Kollegen. Wegen dir mache ich hier keine Ausnahme, zumal dein Verständnis Höflichkeit gemäß deiner obigen vorwurfsvollen Polemik etwas bizarr ist. --High Contrast (talk) 14:58, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
In diesem Fall werde ich mich an jemandem Andern wenden, der diese Sache in Ordnung bringt. Es interessiert mich übrigens nicht daß Sie sich die Freiheiten nehmen alle zu Dutzen ich habe Ihnen von Anfang an deutlich gemacht daß ICH ES NICHT WÜNSCHE. Damit es klar ist es geht jetzt nicht mehr um die Veränderungen die Sie vorgenommen haben ES GEHT JETZT AUSCHLIEßLICH DARUM WIE SIE ALS ADMINISTRATOR MIT ANDEREN UMGEHEN. 80.171.48.106 15:08, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Mein Umgang ist dem Verhalten anderer angepasst. Das ist dir sicherlich klar. --High Contrast (talk) 15:10, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Nein! Das ist überhaupt nicht klar. Man kann zwar immer anderer Meinung sein aber nicht seine Freiheiten (die jetzt in die Frechheiten übergehen) durchzusetzen. Sie hatten Ihre Möglichkeit aus der Sache rauszukommen gehabt, hartknäckig haben haben Sie jedoch Eskalation und Konfrontation gewählt in dem Sie mich weiter dutzen. Hiermit beende ich diese Disskussion in der Hoffnung dass auf Commons die Meisten wissen WAS HÖFLICHER UMGANG MIT ANDEREN MENSCHEN bedeutet. 80.171.48.106 15:27, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
...zu denen du ganz offensichtlich nicht gehörst. Ein Ende dieser überflüssigen "Diskussion" begrüße ich sehr - ist es doch wahrlich reine Zeitverschwendung. Ich bin hier, um konstruktive Beiträge zu leisten - wie du offenbar auch. Also, noch einmal, lass dich nicht von deinen Bearbeitungsvorhaben auf Commons abhalten.

This Image

Do you think that this image can be moved to Commons? September 11 is coming. I checked the source and the global security website says its a 'US Government photo' which I noted in an edit to this photo. Any views? I did not put the 'move to commons' tag to it. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:22, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello! Well, if it is an US governmental photo, then it should be no problem. Did you find a different source, an official US governmental site, like FBI or the Dod, that can verify this licencing statement on www.globalsecurity.org? --High Contrast (talk) 08:32, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
  • No. I don't know where global security got this image but the reference is given: "U.S. Department of Defense publication. 'The Nature of the Enemy.' Vol. 1, No. 3, Oct. 24, 2006." I just noted what they say. So, I should I or should I not move it then to Commons? (I added that publication reference to the picture) Its your call.
  • Note: Ramzi was arrested in September 2002-- a year after the 9/11 attacks in Pakistan--and deported to the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. So the image could be taken by US authorities. --Leoboudv (talk) 20:02, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I know that it could be taken by US authorities, but could be is unfortunately not enought evidence. Nevertheless, "U.S. Department of Defense publication. 'The Nature of the Enemy.' Vol. 1, No. 3, Oct. 24, 2006." is a valid source. That sounds really good - do you find this US Dod publication on the internet? As I said above, if you have a valid source, feel free to transfer this file. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 08:25, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

The problem was that one of the the upload guides in Portuguese included my username and the name Cesáreo Fraile Izquierdo (which is someone else's), and some uploaders copy-pasted that verbatim into the file descriptions. I have since replaced most references to my name, but the problem isn't completely solved. I will work with other translators of help pages to make sure this cannot happen again. —UED77 (talk) 10:24, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

OK. Thank you for your help! Regards, High Contrast (talk) 10:27, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I just missed the own template while uploading using commonist. Added to those images where source was missing. Thanks for notifying.--Rameshng (talk) 12:46, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi! Such things simply happen. Thanks for inserting the {{own}}-template. I have removed this no-source-tag on File:Kolkotta Streets 10.jpg. Thanks for your help and happy editing! Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 12:51, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Image copyright warning

Hello, I'm writing you regarding the warning the on image file located at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Museum_for_the_Macedonian_Struggle_collection_items_5.jpg. I've added the required source information, as well as contact info of the owner, however the waning persists. Please let me know what I must do to rectify the situation. Regards, Patrinos (talk) 09:56, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello! Sorry, but this is not enough. Are you the photographer of these images? If yes, insert {{own}} as source. If you have taken those images from the website of this museum, please go to COM:OTRS (our "permissions-check-team"). Then send the email to the emailadress that can be found there and tell the volunteers there that you have the permission to release these photos here under this licence. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 14:33, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. The images ('Museum for the Macedonian Struggle collection items 1.jpg' to 'Museum for the Macedonian Struggle collection items 5.jpg') were made available to me by the Foundation of the Museum for the Macedonian Struggle for the express purpose of publishing them on wikipedia. However, I did not obtain them from their website. They were commissioned to photographer Pavlos Makridis as work for hire and the foundation has full ownership and copyrights. Would it be sufficient for the foundation to send the OTRS team a message to this effect?

Patrinos (talk) 16:36, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I do not doubt your words. Send this to OTRS and this must work. It would be great if it works because these photos are a good addition for Commons. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 20:06, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Hallo, schade, dass Du mit Deiner Löschung über eine Stunde meiner Arbeit zunichte gemacht hast .... Die bisherige Kategorie "Musée des Blindes" umfasst weit über 200 Bilder. Wie ich die wikipedia-Praxis verstanden habe, ist eine derartige Häufung unerwünscht. Außerdem war die Seite sehr unübersichtlich. Natürlich könnte man deiner Anregung folgen und zu jedem Fahrzeugtyp eine eigene Kategorie bilden. Dies hätte aber zur Folge, dass nicht wenige Kategorien nur ein einziges Bild enthalten würden (was doch wiederum in wikip. nicht erwünscht ist). Deshalb erschien und erscheint mir eine Gliederung nach Nationalitäten sinnvoll. --Matthias Holländer (talk) 16:25, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Achtung. Deine Arbeit wurde überhaupt nicht zu Grunde gemacht. Deine Uploads wurden lediglich verschoben. Deine Bilder sind gut und sehr erwünscht auf Commons (hier kannst du alle deine Bild-Uploads sehen). Die Kategorisierungspraxis auf Commons ist anders strukturiert, als du dir das momentan vorstellst. Dass Kategorien auf Commons gerne einmal mehr als 200 Bilder beeinhalten ist normal. Bei den Museenkategorie gibt es noch keine einheitlich Praxis. Es gibt diverse Ansätze, aber eine breite Durchsetzung oder ein Konsens existiert noch nicht. Lade deine Bilder einfach weiter hoch und lege sie in Category:Musée des Blindés ab, wo sich all deine anderen Bilder ebenfalls befinden. Ich schaue später noch einmal über deine Uploads und kategorisiere sie richtig. Gruß und viel Spaß beim weiteren Hochladen. Gruß, High Contrast (talk) 16:31, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

You as the uploader must prove that all stuff you present here is free enought for Commons. And yes, there many different possibilities for getting free satellite images.

Requesting undeletion of a template

Would you mind undeleting {{Dablink}}? Contrary to the statements made by the nominator in its DR, which you closed, this template is heavily used — it appears in 440 different categories by my count, as well as other pages. Nyttend (talk) 00:12, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

y the way, please leave a note at my talk page when you reply here; I'll probably forget to come back if you don't. Nyttend (talk) 00:13, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
You will remember my talk page ;) Well, I was aware of the fact that this template is used on several categories but nobody took part in this deletion discussion. So, on Commons such DR get regularly closed after 7 days. I, personally, can think of undeletion but this would be a bit unfair for others who disagree in an undeletion. I would prefer a ordinary request at COM:UNDEL, so that others can post their opinions as well. Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 00:22, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Ahemmm....

Did you realise that the category you demolished was called "Airliners of Air New Zealand", NOT "Airliners of New Zealand"? At the very least, you could have reinstated the "Air New Zealand" categories. As it is, you simply removed valid categorising data. Please be careful with such moves, and check whether your removals did the same to the files of other uploaders. Regards, Ingolfson (talk) 12:15, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

The "Airliners of" was never a valid category system; As a careful User I have watched this pseudo-"category-tree" for several months/years: It was set up by User:Joshbaumgartner (not active on Commons since June 2008) that was not completed and is redundant to existing and better linked categories. User:Joshbaumgartner started this project and stopped prematurely because he suddenly agnised that it is much work. So, which categories should be reinstalled again? --High Contrast (talk) 16:21, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Please explain me why Category:Airliners of France are legitime, and Category:Airliners of Romania (did you delete it) not? Thanks. --Turbojet (talk) 18:34, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello Turbojet! Category:Airliners of France is not legitimate. This cat will be deleted as the other connated categories of this type. This cat is, as the other ones, redundant to existing ones. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 23:54, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer. Please give me a link towards a discussion showing that this is the opinion of the community, not yours. I want to understand why a certain kind of category is good and another not. Possible to discuss there. --Turbojet (talk) 10:09, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
This certain category tree was unfinished and was an attempt by one user to copy a category tree from the English Wikipedia to Commons. He stopped after some 20 edits and he left behind the remains of this inconsistent category tree. Inconsistent because there was a similiar, but differently named category tree already on Commons ("Category:Civil aircraft"). Due to this redundancy it was deleted as an uncontroversial cleaning. --High Contrast (talk) 11:27, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
"Civil aircraft" is not the same as "airliner". Agricultural aircraft are also civilian, but not airliners. Category:Airliners is legitimate? If yes, Category:Rombac should to be linked to this kind of aircraft. --Turbojet (talk) 14:18, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
I know what civil aircraft and airliners are. The problem was differently. Is Rombac an type of aircraft or is it a manufacturer? --High Contrast (talk) 14:26, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
"Rombac" is the short name (complete ro:ROMBAC 1-11) of the aircraft, like en:BAC One-Eleven and en:Boeing 747. The manufacturer was Întreprinderea de Avioane București (The Aircraft Factory of Bucharest), branch of en:Industria Aeronautică Română. The ro:wp category is ro:Categorie:Avioane de pasageri = en:Category:Airliners. --Turbojet (talk) 15:25, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
So, it is an aircraft/airliner model; then place it in Category:Airliners. --High Contrast (talk) 15:27, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. I hope that in future you will not act as you think. --Turbojet (talk) 15:40, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
I never did. --High Contrast (talk) 15:42, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Really! What about saying "this category name/structure is good and the other is bad"? I asked the link to the community decision. You do not gave me, so i consider it is your own opinion. Why not ask you to undelete Category:Aircraft of Romania, also other categories deleted by you? --Turbojet (talk) 16:18, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Redundant categories get deleted on Commons, do you think this is not appropriate? You never asked to undelete anything nor did you act construcitvely to improve the Airliners category. So why do you now start to get harshly? --High Contrast (talk) 16:20, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Ok, as far as I have time, probably in 2016, when I retire. If I still find something after you delete it. --Turbojet (talk) 16:36, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

help

Please see Martin has deleted this and this and File:Prelucrare 3D pentru Sandulita si Magureni, Calarasi.jpg and more files. Say, I violated copyright. I think this is caused by wikimapia where I just take information that fill the map. Please help me.Asybaris01 (talk) 15:30, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello!
It seems that "Wikimapia" brought Martin to delete this file. But that's no problem at all because images on Commons that were deleted are not gone but just invisible for non-admins; that means those files are still there. The next to do is, to explain Martin where these images came from. Explain that the base map is from NASA World Wind and that only the text information is from Wikimapia (as far as I understood this issue). Important is that you contact Martin directly on his talk page. The Restoration of these files should be done by the User who deleted them, so please contact Martin. I am quite sure that these files can come back. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 16:57, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

These images

Will someone delete any of these failed panoramio images if they have been failed for more than 1 week? I had to revert my panoramio pass on 17 images and so this category is a bit full now. The images initially failed review in 2010. Then I saw the copyright give broad permission to the uploader to upload the images to wikipedia--so I passed them since Lupo said that a permission was OK for pre-2009 uploaded images--but now I see (from the image talkpages) that the typed permission has disappeared from the panoramio link. But anyway the permission for pre-2009 images was only for wikipedia...which is a restriction as I noted when I filed a DR here...and as Admin Lupo told me in the DR link I gave. But I can't really file 17 DRs when the images were initially failed in 2010 by other Admins or trusted users. It wouldn't make sense. I just revoked my panoramio pass. Just curious, if you can delete them. That's all. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 05:56, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

As always: the Commons principles requires "valid sources" that can verify that any image is really published under the licence that is used for any image (COM:L). Bwmoll3, we had this discussion for several times.
What you gave as source for File:C-130-Peoria-Illinois ANG.jpg is "Illinois Air National Guard 182d AW PA office". This is insufficient to show that this certain file is in the public domain. For example this file: here you have sufficient source information of an USAF-image: you see the "gallery" where this image can be found with the correct byline that this image was taken by an USAF-employee. In addition, the direct link on the file is also given. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 14:28, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

So, in other words, you are saying that an image provided by an Official United States Air Force officer, emailing from an official United States Air Force email address in line with his official duties as a public affairs officer making government information available to the general public is "insufficient" as a "valid source", because it is not posted on a government website? I have even offered to forward to you his email FROM the af.mil address Bwmoll3 (talk) 15:15, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Evidence is missing. Anybody could say I have received an email of the president of the United States. --High Contrast (talk) 15:18, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
However, not anyone would offer to forward you the email, which I have now twice Bwmoll3 (talk) 15:20, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Do you know COM:OTRS? --High Contrast (talk) 15:22, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, I'm not familiar with all the nuances of commons. I'm just a simple author trying to illustrate an article I've written for the benefit of the general public. If, in your zeal to delete the image while it's under review, that's your prerogative, and once it's passed it's review there I'll just simply re-post it. Bwmoll3 (talk) 15:33, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
I hate deleting images. I only want reliable source information. --High Contrast (talk) 15:37, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
And no, you are not "just a simple author" - you are the same author like anybody else here on Commons. There is no group of "simple" authors. --High Contrast (talk) 15:47, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

File:Dornier Seastar D-ICKS.jpg

You tagged File:Dornier Seastar D-ICKS.jpg as no source. While it currently has source = author and the author field blank, it was originally uploaded [26] with the uploader as author. The uploader (who does not appear to active on commons) appears to have removed his username [27] in 2009 - is the statement of authorship that the photograph was originally uploaded sufficient to keep this photo?Nigel Ish (talk) 16:44, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Wonderful! Thanks for support. I tried to open the file's history but it didn't load. Neverthless, I have removed the "no source"-tag and I restored the original source informaion that which is definately sufficient. --High Contrast (talk) 17:12, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello, there is a little cleaning to do in the uploads of this user, as the DR pointed that those colorized nazis were copyvios. Could you take a look at it, please ? --Lilyu (talk) 20:50, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

File:Wehrvonbockcopy1.jpg
sources of the copyvios is the wehrmacht-awards.com forum. The DR showed that the file was a copyvio and that the own work claim was a lie, proofs were provided that other colorized nazis were copyvios with fake own work claims, the uplaoder had a previous history of uplaoding copyvios with false own work claims, and he was finally blocked for that. We can't trust the own work claims of this user, and i think it's pretty clear that he didn't colorised those old black and white photos and don't have the skill to do it.--Lilyu (talk) 21:10, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
Well, I agree with you but most of the upper files were not listed in the DR? I can delete it but other users may see this as controversal because those files haven't been discussed with other community fellows. --High Contrast (talk) 21:19, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Same situation with Commons:Deletion requests/File:Crew ncis 2009 09 06 thetvdb.jpg that you closed with a deletion, while leaving the exact same type of copyvio (8 portraits) in Category:NCIS (TV series). Lilyu - siffle.svg--Lilyu (talk) 17:08, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

And the same rationale from above applies to this issue. The DR is only for one file. --High Contrast (talk) 17:59, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
I can't see the deleted file, you confirm that it's the same copyvio source as File:Brian Dietzen - NCIS.jpg or File:Cote de Pablo - NCIS.jpg ? --Lilyu (talk) 23:50, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

This file has been deleted with this DR. If you find copyright violations, nominate them. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 13:28, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

I have deleted those files because they are blatant DWs of the deleted file. Please bring such connections in DR next time. Such things must documentated in the correspondending DR. --High Contrast (talk) 15:58, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
huh ? how could i have done such a thing, the DR was already closed when i saw those files, pro quality, with a source linking to a deleted file, it's only that way that i found the DR... with no idea what was the deleted file.--Lilyu (talk) 16:25, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
A DR is open for at least 7 days. After that, you normally have to start a new DR for the problematic files. Can you please let the person who created the DWs of the originally deleted file know that his uploads have been deleted? Thanks in advance. --High Contrast (talk) 18:22, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

These images from M. Bahri's account

These 5-6 images were recently uploaded within the past 2-3 weeks and failed review from panoramio with an ND restriction. But after MGA73 contacted the copyright owner on the panoramio links--like this--he changed the license immediatedly for all his photos to "ARR." If this was flickr, an image which failed flickrreview would be deleted ASAP. So, why aren't these images from M. Bahri's account deleted from Commons? He clearly doesn't want them here...and they were never free in the first place. They should all be deleted--like one deletes a recently uploaded unfree flickr photo. Will you delete them? Why does anyone have to file a formal DR on a recently uploaded image which failed panoramio review when MGA73 contacted him--and his reply is very clear.

Setra buses

Hello. I think, you don't known rules sorting buses like this. Good categories including (necessary): manufacturer (like Setra), model (like Setra S 415 HD, if is known), place (like Munich, if is known) and other optional categories like Setra buses by country name. When you put in foto only in optional category Setra buses by country name this foto is unsort by model name. Setra buses with unknown model name and still unsort by model name must by in category Setra buses. Category Setra buses (sort by manufacturer, unsort by model name - waiting for this sort) is not category Setra buses in Germany (sort by manufacturer, by country, unsort by model name and hidden by this sort!!!). This Setra 400-series need category Setra buses. This is not owercat!!! Sort rules are not the same. Marek Banach (talk) 18:33, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

I don't understand why an image of a free fundraising brochure has been nominated for deletion! Is it a technical problem in the way I submitted the info? What can I do to keep the image? In addition, regarding the use of logos... I copied and pasted this license from the file of the Technion Logo at WikiCommons: This is a logo of an organization, item, or event, and is protected by copyright.

Images from Caelum Observatory & The Mount Lemmon SkyCenter

Dear High Contrast, I am looking for an administrator to help me with batch uploading some images. Adam Block from The Mount Lemmon SkyCenter has kindly agreed to release a large amount of his images with a CC BY-SA 3.0 license. He has done this specifically so they can be used on wiki projects. A .zip containing all of the released images can be found here. I would like to be able to upload them all into a category called 'Images from Caelum Observatory & The Mount Lemmon SkyCenter' or something in that vein. Many of them will be very useful and have high EV. A link to one of his galleries showing the relevant copyright statements can be found here. As there is 200+ files in the .zip file, uploading them all would be very tedious. I would be really grateful if you could help me, or point me in the direction of someone who can. Many thanks, Originalwana (talk) 16:55, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello Originalwana!
Thank you for making these files available for Wikimedia! Great work - they are definately useful! But I have no experience with batch uploads.

Pourriez vous m'expliquer , en français svp , ce que je dois faire

Merci

Bonsoir! Tes images restera sur Commons. Ce DR reste ouverte pour seulement quelques jours parce que les règle la demande. Ce n'est pas un problème pour l'image, tes montages certainement pas être effacées. Mais: tu dois indiquer la source exactement; example: [29]. Beaucoup de salutations, High Contrast (talk) 20:17, 5 October 2011 (UTC)


Merci pour la réponse , ça me rassure

A l'avenir j'indiquerai mieux mes sources

Je ne suis pas encore très douée pour comprendre les règles , c'est compliqué quand on est nouveau

J'avais mis le fichier " La Tour d'Air " dans la catégorie " Seraing" mais je ne le vois pas affiché sur ma galerie

Serait ce possible de l'ajouter ? J'aimerai aussi ajouter " Fort de Boncelles " dans la catégorie , c'est possible aussi ?

Watermark ?

Hello.

I found this image at Flickr and uploaded it as it was under a free licence. However, it has a watermark on it. Do you know any tools that could be useful in removing the watermark ? I've requested a peer review for the Bulgaria article in the English wiki, and I plan to propose it for FA status and all images have to be perfect. And sorry for not responding on my talk page, I only stop by to upload here and I'm somewhat short on time for other issues. Best, - Tourbillon 17:25, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello! I thought you were not active any more. Welcome back! Well, photoshop is a quite good software but it is not free. A more simple alternative is for instance the software paint.net (Wiki-article: en:Paint.NET). Regards, High Contrast (talk) 17:31, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Floral ornaments

Hello. The mentioned figures ( File:Flower Ornament Coloured.svg, File:Floweret 6 Red.svg) are simple wide-spread shapes and they are not results of creative work. May be the correct license is: {{PD-ineligible}} But when I upload pictures the form page doesn't give me a chance to write the most suitable license by hand. --Gabriel VanHelsing (talk) 18:36, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello! They are widly spread but I think they are not ineligible for copyright. Are those drawings your own work? --High Contrast (talk) 18:43, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello. I saw another pictures with the same source (for example File:Floral heart.png). I used old dingbat fonts too, edited and coloured the figures and then upload them to Wikimedia.--Gabriel VanHelsing (talk) 18:51, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

File:Floral heart.png is a bad example. Please don't take it as an example. But, did you draw all thos files? --High Contrast (talk) 19:01, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
Please do not remove problem tags arbitrary. --High Contrast (talk) 19:03, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello. You're a very strict administrator and it's good for Wikimedia. But File:Floral heart.png is not a bad example. It's a medieval ornament (from medieval books and walls) and not a subject of copyright. That's why dingbat fonts contain symbols or figures of very old or very simple shapes. For instance File:Vine leaf ornament.svg is a medieval ornament too but the user that uploaded it has declared it as an own work. I consider the data given by the first user is more correctly and honestly than the second one. --Gabriel VanHelsing (talk) 16:02, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Well, I know that it is a medieval ornament. I know it all and I know that this motive should not have any copyright restriction anymore. But this is not of interest in this issue. I fear that we talk at cross-purposes. The source-field should be filled correctly with source information: that means usually that it should be stated who is the author of it (if the uploader him/herself, then "{{own}}" for own work) and if it was taken from the web or from a book, then we need the complete source information for that. Well, again: are those symbols that you have uploaded your own work? Or did you take it from another website? Regards, High Contrast (talk) 16:54, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Now, I'm confused. I'll explain in detail. First as I have declared I use a very simple or very old figure from a dingbat font as a template. Then I edit it until it meets my views and finally I colour it. What should I fill in the fields: Sourse and Author. Who's the author: me, dinbat fonts creators or an unknown illustrator of past centures? Can you help me? --Gabriel VanHelsing (talk) 18:37, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

So these images are derivative works of existing, likely copyrighted files? You must be aware that the following files are likely not ineligible for copyright, so that {{PD-ineligible}} or CC-zero does not apply: [30], [31], [32], [33]. Please be aware of the fact that "wide-spread figures" does not make images ineligible for copyright as well. --High Contrast (talk) 22:07, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Sorry. There were presidential elections yesterday in our country and I took part in their organization and had no possibility to answer your comment.
Your explanations help me to learn some more things about rules in Wikimedia. And let me explain something about fonts and dingbat fonts. A font may be a subject to copuright as a whole font or as a style, but its elements are not copyrighted. (Maybe that's why there is no particular wish to create fonts since the 1990s.) Otherwise every literate person should ask permission and pay a fee to fonts owners for every letter, digit, dot, comma, mathematica sign he/she wrotes or for every triangle, square, cross, star, rhomb, heart, cloud, sun, arrow, drop, snowflake, leaf, floweret, fir tree, writing nib, clock, watch he/she draws because they are elemets of different copyrighted font in different variants. There are a lot of signs in the fonts: $, €, ¥, £, signs of disabled people, road signs, "no smoking" sign, metropolitain stations [34], river stations [35], tiny Mona Liza, tiny Michelangelo's touching hands, tiny portrait of Washington, tiny medieval ornaments (such as mentioned above), signs of guns, clipboards, pencils, phones and other wide-spread common used symbols in all sorts of variations. I've uploaded another files using different dingbat fonts as sources and no other administrator made me a remark. I can't specify a name of the dingbat fonts because different fonts use the same elements. If you consider I don't fill properly the source-fields, please show me the correct way to fill them, but I think it's honestly to declare the uplouded ornaments are not my creations, they are from different dingbat files. --Gabriel VanHelsing (talk) 15:44, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

A problem with pictures

I upload a pictures to a 0 AD article, a free source and glp game, the pictures i took from http://www.wildfiregames.com/0ad/ You can read that in the page:


New Release: 0 A.D. Alpha 7 Geronium 0 A.D. News Feed Posted by Jeru on Sep 17 2011, 01:22 AM Comments: 0 - (Post a comment!) Wildfire Games, an international group of volunteer game developers, proudly announces the release of "0 A.D. Alpha 7 Geronium", the seventh alpha version of 0 A.D., a free, open-source game of ancient warfare. This alpha debuts Carthage, a mighty, versatile naval civilization, includes a dynamic border game mechanic, a new main menu and several new music tracks featuring live performances by professional musicians.

Easy Download and Install Download and installation instructions are available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. 0 A.D. is free of charge and always will be. You can redistribute it and modify it as long as you abide by the GPL. You can even use parts of the art and sound for your own projects as long as you abide by CC-BY-SA. No "freemium" model, no in-game advertising, no catch.

Is a copyright vilation?

plz wait you answer — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gadox13 (talk • contribs)

You made several mistakes in your uploads. You placed these files under weird licences here that did not fit, like e.g. PD-old or something like that. If these video game screenshots are released under CC-by-sa, then you have to state that explicitly with a valid notice to the homepage where this is written. I have restored all images and I have put on all relevant information. If you decide to uploade new files from this website, please give all information that are relevant - as I did. Regards and thanks for helping. --High Contrast (talk) 19:00, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

rational for deletion

you closed this debate & deleted the images without providing ANY explanation for your decision?

per nominator: Unlikely to be own work: small resolutions, missing EXIF. --High Contrast (talk) 15:46, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
low-res & lack of exif DO NOT constitute proof of copyvio; not de facto, & not in commons' policy & guidelines. the images are clearly snapshots & not professional photography; no evidence of a copyvio, or copyvio source for the images was provided. do you really consider that a good basis for closing & deleting a disputed dd, with only 2 commentors, after only 1 week open discussion?

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Actually, Commons urgently needs a bot to review images from Indafoto rather than panoramio right now. I've pointed this out to Dcoetzee twice already...the second time here But he doesn't respond because I assume he's much too busy to create a new bot for this task. But when there are 2,900+ images mostly from Indafoto waiting for review in the category I referenced, something should be done. But this all...takes time sadly. Thanks anyway for your reply.

Copyright

Hello,

Thank you for the warning. I was unaware of what I was doing. If you give me a little bit I will be sure to correct all of the photos I have uploaded. I work at the JSC and was told to upload our photos to Wikipedia from the Crew Earth Obs. website. If you could tell me the easiest way to correct the copyright information I would be happy to change all of them. I do not plan to take credit for all of their hard work :)

Thank you! Aresceo (talk) 19:46, 20 December 2011 (UTC)Aresceo

Hi! Glad to have a resonse from you! I have answered on your talk page. --High Contrast (talk) 20:50, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello

Thanks for the quick response as well! I will get started on that immediately. Everything should be good and legal by tomorrow.

And by the way the pictures from my department are not satellite images. They are Astronaut Imagery taken by mounted or handheld cameras from the ISS. That is what makes the pictures so unique, knowing that there is a human behind the camera. My boss wanted me to get our pictures out there because everyone does think that only satellites take pictures from space. If you ever need Earth Imagery feel free to use our website! (With proper citation of course :])

And actually I have a question. How did you make the pictures at a larger resolution? It may just be me but it would appear the few pictures that you corrected are at a higher resolution than the ones that I have corrected. And also while I have your attention, is this an acceptable correction?

Thanks again! I'll be in touch if I have any more questions. Aresceo (talk) 22:04, 20 December 2011 (UTC)Aresceo

It is everything okay with this image. The only thing that I have corrected were the round brackets at the source link. Besides, I uploaded the highest resolution: If you want to do that, you have just to click on "Request" (on the source page; file Size 1467592 bytes). Then, this page opens and you just have to "Navigate to ftp://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ESC_large_ISS005_ISS005-E-20945.JPG". Mostly, this link opens not with the first try (some problem message appears). But after you try to open it for a few times, the image can be downloaded. I usually crop out the bottom.
Happy editing! --High Contrast (talk) 17:21, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

BTR-Serie und Category:KPV

Hi! Ich habe gesehen, daß Du die Kat entfernt hast. Gibts dafür eine Begründung? Eingefügt hatte ich sie, weil die BTRs in der Regel mit dem 14,5er KPW bewaffnet sind. --Markscheider (talk) 13:05, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi! Das stimmt nur bedingt, aber nicht alle BTRs sind mit dem 14,5er KPW bewaffnet. Ich wurde diesbzgl. per Email benachrichtigt. Gruß, High Contrast (talk) 07:45, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
Deshalb "in der Regel". Das KPW ist die Standardbewaffnung, nur Spezialversionen wie Artillerieführung, chemische Aufklärung usw. führen es nicht. Aber meinetwegen, wenn Du diese Ausnahmen als so gravierend ansiehst, daß man die BTR Kategorien nicht in die Kategorie KPV einordnen kann, dann bleibt nur eine Möglichkeit: Du gehst jedes Bild einzeln durch und setzt die Category:KPV in die einzelnen Bilder, auf denen das MG zu erkennen ist.

Das ist die einzig sinnvolle Möglichkeit, denn auf Commons wird nur das kategorisiert, was tatsächlich auf einem Bild zu erkennen ist. Ebenso. --High Contrast (talk) 08:24, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
Man könnte noch die BTRs in Untertypen aufteilen und die KPW-Kategorie dann nur den Kampfversionen zuordnen - allerdings habe ich dafür nicht genügend Detailwissen.--Markscheider (talk) 08:58, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
Könnte man, aber: Auf Commons gilt zudem der Grundsatz, dass bloß das sog. main subject (COM:CAT) kategorisiert werden sollte. Folglich verdienten nur diejenigen Bilder die KPW-Kategorie, die tatsächlich diese Waffen draufgesetzt haben. Ich werde die nächsten Tage die BTR-Kategorien durchforsten und versuchen die KPW-Kat. einzubauen. --High Contrast (talk) 09:04, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Fotos de la Alianza y M1A1 Abrams

Estimado High Contrast, las fotos La Alianza lateral.jpg y La Alianza frontal.jpg son trabajo propio por lo que cedo el permiso para que se puedan hacer lo que se quiera con ellas. En cuanto a M1A1 Abrams es de la Wikimedia inglesa en la que se especifica entre otros que es una foto de dominio público. Saludos. --myfgsl (talk) 10:05, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

"Wikipedia inglesa" is no sufficient source. Sorry. --High Contrast (talk) 10:16, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Nevertheless, the licence is absolutely incorrect because you are not the author of it and you have not the right to place it under a CC-by licence. --High Contrast (talk) 17:31, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Lo siento, pero no se a ciencia cierta que cubre y como se utilizan las diferentes licencias, puse una de ellas sin saber si podía o no.--myfgsl (talk) 19:33, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

No problem, the image is saved by now. It is an image of the US Marine Corps thus an image that is in the public domain. --High Contrast (talk) 08:49, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi, could you please look at this deletion request, either to keep or to delete this file? Thanks --Wvk (talk) 15:19, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi, the consensus seems to be that this file falls under the {{PD-Iran}}-"rule". Regards, High Contrast (talk)
Thanks, and a happy new year! --Wvk (talk) 15:11, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome. I wish you the same. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 15:58, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Cosmos Hotel

The Cosmos Hotel likely violates Russian COM:FOP since it was built in 1979 and is not a generic looking building. I discusseed the problem with MGA73 here Would you consider filing a speedy delete tag on this upload? I imagine all the other images in the cat for this Hotel should face a mass DR (if you know how to do this) except for one where De Minimis can be used. (it is mentioned in my question to MGA73). Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:12, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi! In my view this building does not meet the threshold of originality. I oppose a mass DR since some images are "simple" photographs like e.g. this one. How do you see this? --High Contrast (talk) 23:32, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I asked Admin and Bureaucrat (indirectly) EugeneZelenko a question about a bridge in France and a mosque in Russia here sometime ago. EugeneZelenko said that FOP in Russia depends upon the date of construction. If the mosque was built in the 19th century, it may be kept if the architect died 70 years ago...presumably. But as for Hotel Cosmos, it was built in 1979, so the architect cannot be deceased for 70 years since the time difference between 1979 and 2011 is 32 years only so there is a problem (with this picture under Russian copyright law) especially since its not a standard industrial designed bland building but a unique design--which should fall under copyright laws. But why don't you ask EugeneZelenko just to be sure? He would know more about all the intricacies of Russian copyright law...and say if the image is not acceptable to Commons. Tell him that if its OK to please pass the image file or if not to to file a DR. At least, you are open and flexible to Eugene. That is what I do. So, far all the evidence from MGA73 and EugeneZelenko suggests the answer is not OK for Commons. I passed this other image and another here due to the template which EugeneZelenko told me...that Russian and Soviet emblemed monuments are generally OK and in the public domain. But the hotel has no symbols. It may be best to ask Eugene to get 100% certainty if this image is OK for Commons. (plus he can pass the image if its OK). Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 01:15, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I won't tag your image but the risk is someone may either decline to mark it or tag it for deletion of course. That is why I suggest EugeneZelenko to get some certainty here. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 01:36, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

I know about the Russian FOP-issues and I agree with you that they are sometimes quite complicated and oftenly controversial results come out of DRs. But all in all claiming copyright on simple shaped strucutres is not possible and in my view the Cosmos Hotel is one of those "simple" structures - especially if you do not have a detailed view on the building's face. If the hotel has Soviet "symbols" on it does not matter - only the age of some structure does. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 09:34, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
