Authors should decide their own license preferences[edit]

I, Infrogmation, hereby "opt out" of the involuntary "license migration". Notes: The vast majority of my uploads I would happily agree to add cc-by-sa-3.0 to the listed license option (if that license is not one of the listed options already) IF I am ASKED. I do NOT consent to any change license of any of my copyrighted works that I have not personally authorized. I have NOT authorized any party other than myself to change licensing of any of my works without my explicit permission. See here on my talk page for discussion.

This was my stand more than 2 years ago. It has not changed. Months of work and thousands of edits have been required of me for this simple assertion of my basic authorship rights. I consider Wikimedia a noble project, but think Wikimedia should be deeply ashamed of the way they have treated and continue to treat contributors who have been kind enough to share their own media under free licenses. Infrogmation (talk)

I do so agree with you. This license policy of the commons project prevents me from uploading more photos because I do not like my pictures changed by other people and not even knowing about it. --Manuela (talk) 06:38, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

"Election flyers in the United States"[edit]

I know this is an old edit, but were you planning to create a category or did you mean to type something else? - Jmabel ! talk 18:43, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I don't recall off hand what my thoughts or plans were at the time. Possibly it might be a useful category, but I'd have to hunt around to see. Feel free to remove the no-existent cat. -- Infrogmation (talk) 01:04, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Music of 1905[edit]

I'm not about to close it — for the simple reason that I don't know how properly to do it, and I'm afraid I'd make a mess of the page (and perhaps the monthly log) if I tried. Would you mind closing it yourself? I have no objection to seeing it closed as "Uti possidetis", i.e. we're happy with the changes that happened during the DR, and we're not going to make any further changes without having another discussion. I'll happily file a bot request to untag all of the other pages, if you'd like. Nyttend (talk) 00:15, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Permission to use an image that you uploaded[edit]

Hello there, I would like to use an image that you uploaded to this site - it is this one in particular 'AfricanSlavesTransport.jpg' - and I just wanted to be sure that I have your permission to use it. It looks as though it is in the public domain but I just wanted to check with you for formalities and because I don't want to get into trouble if I do use it and have not got your permission first! Thank you 109.231.202.226 16:32, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

File:AfricanSlavesTransport.jpg is public domain. I hold no rights to it; I merely scanned and uploaded a copy here. It can be freely reused without restriction. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 16:36, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Can you confirm for me that you made the scan and what the source of the scan was - the original book for example or did you get the page with this illustration from somewhere else? Thanks once again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.231.202.226 (talk • contribs)

Yes, I scanned it from a 19th century book I had in my own collection before Katrina. -- Infrogmation (talk) 20:40, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Incomplete block notice[edit]

The gent whom you queried "why don't you want" these pictures on here is a naturist whose personal images were deleted previously. I suspect he wants his lead in/lead out images removed since his naturist images were deleted. Love your name! Ellin Beltz (talk) 08:10, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Image deletion question[edit]

I found reference to File:Miller cir.png in en:User:Spinningspark/Why I don't upload to Commons. You deleted it as a copyvio; Spinningspark is objecting that it can't possibly be a copyvio, since it was the same as the clearly free en:File:Miller cir.png. As far as you can tell from a five-years-old action, what happened? Perhaps it was different image with the same name? I'm just trying to understand, since I don't have ViewDeleted on this wiki. Nyttend (talk) 13:34, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't recall anything about that. -- Infrogmation (talk) 17:17, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Of course I didn't expect you to recall anything about it; I'm simply asking you to check the deleted revisions and then tell me your best guess at what happened, just as you would do if I asked you to look at an image that had been deleted by another admin. Nyttend (talk) 03:13, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

On a completely unrelated issue, I was curious about the previous section, so I looked at the CTownNYIfrog1995.jpg DR. I didn't understand However the photo uploaded via Flickr leaves me with no way to expand the license (short of a separate re-upload to Commons not via Flickr). Is it no longer possible to add extra text to a file description at Flickr? I've not used the site in a long time, but several years ago I found an image with a PD release — the uploader couldn't pick that as a license option of course, but he said in the description "this is in the public domain", so I uploaded it as File:Miami County Courthouse clock and Justice.jpg and didn't have any problems once I explained the situation to the reviewer. Nyttend (talk) 13:40, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Music year categories[edit]

I'd completely forgotten about the situation, so I'm left expecting that I accidentally ignored your previous request. I would actually lean more toward a "keep" than a "no consensus" close, but either way I'd not mind your closing of it. You perhaps noticed that I filed a bot request just to tag them — it's too much effort to go around untagging all of them, so I'll be happy to file another bot request if you wish. Nyttend (talk) 12:00, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Sounds good. I just closed the nom. Cheers -- Infrogmation (talk) 23:07, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Removal of deletion nomination information for File:Anencefalia.jpg[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you recently removed the template and associated text which I had placed on this file. I do not know how familiar you are with deletion nomination procedure, but this is not the way they are resolved. If you wish to contest the nomination, you are welcome to do so on the appropriate page according to the instructions given on the file's main page (which I have reverted to the version I created). Please do not remove the template a second time. Thank you. KDS4444 (talk) 18:32, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

I am familiar with procedure. I closed the deletion request Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Anencefalia.jpg because the issue seemed to me entirely resolved. If there is some evidence that the image is a copyright violation, please present it and I will be happy to reopen the discussion, or if the evidence is clearly definitive, speedy delete the image. I have seen no evidence presented yet that this is a problem image; your statement "Image lacks EXIF data" seems to be a misunderstanding of the nature & history of EXIF, as briefly addressed on the discussion. Thanks for your attention. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 23:01, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Are City Park and Audubon Park different parks? Or is one a section of the other? You seem to be a native, and I'm willing to go with what you know. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 22:41, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes, they are two different parks in New Orleans. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 23:46, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about the confusion. SIRIS lists only one Hyams Fountain. Thanks for cleaning things up.
P.S. - Thanks for the great photos. NOLA is well-represented because of you. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 09:16, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
