Use of State Street Bridge Picture[edit]

The Chicago History Museum is interested in using the image of the State Street Bridge in an educational activity to have a current bridge picture to show students and I would like to know how the copyright would work in such a situation. Are we allowed to use it by just crediting it to Jeremy Atherton?

Yes. And as a Chicago History Museum member I am very happy for you to use it. —JeremyA 22:21, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

About adamsavage.jpg[edit]

Hi, you deleted a picture that i uploaded to commons "adamsavage.jpg"

I email adam savage to obtain the copyright in order tu use the photo, he agreed and i paste the email and the reply in the info of the picture.

I dont know how i violated copyrights.... neither how can i upload a f*cking photo without being deleted everytime.

I uploaded the logo of my university, a PUBLIC univeristy here in argentina, how in hell does that have a copyright???

Im sick of this private policy imported from neocon countries.

RE[edit]

Sabes, no entiendo absolutamente nada de lo que me dices. Esto de crear commons, con usuarios mayoritariamente "gringos" y que desplazan a los usuarios de habla hispana fue pésima idea. Si alguien me quiere llamar la atención, que lo haga en español, mientras tanto, no entiendo. --The Game, HHH 02:05, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:Lise Anne Couture + Hani Rashid.jpg[edit]

Hey, Jeremy - in regards to the above image which you deleted, I've been through the en contribution history of the en Wikipedia uploader and have no reason to doubt that the photo was uploaded by the firm Asymptote Architecture, the copyright holder. Was there a reason you simply deleted the photo rather than dropping me a note (here or on en), or listing it at COM:DEL? If you have no objections, I'm going to undelete the photo. Videmus Omnia 15:47, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Ugh - I did some more checking and I have to say I'm mystified and appalled by your actions regarding this photo, and I sincerely hope that this isn't your standard modus operandi as an administrator, or Wikimedia is in serious trouble. Put yourself in the position of the uploader - they provided a source and a license for the photo. An administrator shows up, strikes through the free license they provided, then drops a totally inappropriate warning template on their talk page that the photo they uploaded has no license. No attempt to contact them, apparently, and no helpful instructions on how to confirm the license they provided, through OTRS or otherwise. What would you think if someone did this for a photo that you uploaded? Please apply a little more diligence and common sense before running around and deleting useful content (and, in the process, alienating potential future contributors of free content). I encourage you to spend a little more time on creating/obtaining content, and appreciating the effort that goes into that side of our common endeavor, as opposed to simply summarily deleting material that you find suspicious for whatever reason. Videmus Omnia 17:20, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Hi, I think that there is very good reason to question the uploads of the en Wikipedia uploader. They have given the source of the file as a photobucket account, surely if they were the copyright holder the source would be 'self' or the firm 'Asymptote Architecture'. I see nothing on the photobucket site to suggest that the images there are under the GFDL. Before moving any of these images to the Commons I think that it would be a good idea to verify with Asymptote Architecture that they are indeed releasing their images under the GFDL--it would be great if they are, but very unusual. I would normally use PUI but I felt that in this case the website given as the source made it clear that the image is not GFDL. —JeremyA 17:46, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Did you make even a cursory examination of the other contribs of the en Wikipedia uploader (en:User:Asy arch)? Videmus Omnia 17:50, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes, he/she uploaded a bunch of images in July, had a good few of them deleted then, and hasn't logged in since. I do apologize for not contacting you, that was an error on my part—it really annoys me when people undo my edits without contacting me and I should have done to you as I like people to do to me. However, I still think that this persons uploads are very questionable—it is very common for people to find images on the web and upload them with a made up licence. —JeremyA 18:06, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
If you look at the person's other uploads, I think any doubt you may have that the uploader was Asymptote Architecture will be erased - for example, see this. Once I saw this, I even left the editor a conflict of interest warning and listed them as a COI editor here. However, I still don't understand striking through the GFDL license on the image page, flagging the image for speedy deletion, and then leaving a talkpage message that their uploaded image has no license, with no instructions for OTRS etc...do you see why I would object to this? I'm curious to hear the logic behind this practice. Videmus Omnia 18:19, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I struck the licence because I found it very hard to believe that these images were uploaded to Wikipedia by (or with permission from) the copyright holder. If the uploader had claimed to be the copyright holder I would probably have ignored the image, but the fact that the they are sourced to a photobucket account rather than being given appropriate credit convinced me that the uploader was not the copyright holder. As the uploader has not edited since July I assumed that trying to message them in a sensible way would probably have been fruitless—however, with hindsight I agree that I probably should have tried rather than just sending them a boilerplate message. Reading the image description you link to I do agree with you that reads like someone trying to use Wikipedia for free advertising, which does make me question my certainty. Perhaps an email to the company would resolve the issue—although I can't get their website to work (it crashed my computer) so I haven't yet found a contact address. —JeremyA 19:05, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I sincerely appreciate the apology, thank you. I hope you're not upset that I've undeleted the image - I'll take responsibility for it and the other images from that uploader that I transwikied. Although this may sound cynical, I watch WP:COIN at en Wikipedia because, whatever their other faults, COI and autobiographical editors often upload their images under free license, which is the silver lining in the cloud of conflict-of-interest editing. I personally have no doubt that the images were uploaded by the copyright holder...do you think we should get e-mail verification for every PD-self or GFDL-self image on the Commons? That would grind the project to a standstill....though WP:PUI or COM:DEL discussion is definitely appropriate for borderline material. I think we need to have some measure of trust. (The AA website comes up fine in my Firefox browser, by the way.) Videmus Omnia 19:50, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Of course I don't think that email verification should be sought for all images where the uploader claims to be the copyright holder. As I stated above, if the photo in question were tagged GFDL-self or 'self' was given as the source I would have ignored the image and moved on. —JeremyA 05:39, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Suggested Promoting Merchandise Mart photo to Fetured Picture status[edit]

Hello. I recently linked to your Merchandise Mart photo on Wikipedia Picture Peer Review to suggest that it be promoted to Featured Picture. I hope you don't mind. I think it's a great shot of the building and really shows the building's scale and architectural details. Bikingshaun (talk) 21:17, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Use of Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church 071215.jpg[edit]

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, JeremyA!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Chicago L photo CTA Brown Line usage[edit]

Hi Jeremy Many thanks for taking and uploading such cool photos! I'm working on a documentary about Minnesota's Iron Range for the public TV station up here (Minneapolis St. Paul) and the Minnesota Humanities Center. The doc will be used primarily to educate teachers about the significance of the Iron Range. I'm interested in using your CTA Brown Line photo as an example of one of the major US structures (the 'L') that Minnesota's iron helped build. I'm happy to give attribution but can it be done in the end credits? --Lisa Blackstone 2.16.2009

Sounds OK to me. Thanks for asking. —JeremyA (talk) 00:25, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Use of several images seen in Wikimedia Commons and on your Flikr page...[edit]

Hi Jeremy,

I'm working on a website/blog called TotallyFreeChicago.com where I list all the free events in the Chicago area. I was looking in Wikimedia for some unique header images for the page and found your Lablue picture. I love it and went further to your Flickr page. There I found a few more fun-angled Chicago pics I'd like to use. My idea was to assemble the pictures into a 1300x160 pixel image that would lay under the title of my page/blog. I have several of these large images that rotate when you visit other pages on the site. Because I have no money and no photographic skills, I'm snagging public domain photos from Wikimedia Commons. Anyway, I was not sure how to properly attribute your image(s), so I thought I should just ask. Can I use your images for this project?

Below are all the images I would like permission to use, if possible. Lablue is the only one I have seen on the Commons so far, so I understand if the others are not available for public use. Lablue bean top of the dome reflections on paulina walking alone

If I can use these, the best way I could think of to give credit was to combine them all into one larger image, then put your name in the bottom right corner. I'm not sure how else to do this effectively on the site. If you're ok with the use, please feel free to suggest a better way of attributing the work properly. Thanks!

I have no idea when or if I'll ever remember to look at this page again for your answer so I wouldn't mind if you sent an email directly to founder at totallyfreechicago(dot)com.

use of red line photo[edit]

Hi Jeremy,

I'm working on a report for an Illinois non-profit, Illinois PIRG, on the benefits of public transportation, and I'd like to use a photo you posted of the CTA Red Line (this one: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Willow_portal_070826.jpg). Would it be alright if I used that photo in the report, and credited "Jeremy Atherton"?

Thanks! Siena 209.212.73.14 14:47, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Sure, no problem. —JeremyA (talk) 17:53, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Sheffield population graph[edit]

Hi there! I've been working on various graphics to spruce up Wikipedia articles I'm developing, and I was wondering if you'd be willing to share the style information for your graph of the population of Sheffield, England. Did you use InkScape, Illustrator, or something else? What color did you pick for your gridlines and the background? Is there a set style I should use for graphs? I hate to throw so many questions at you, but you seem like the right person to ask.

I created a graph, but it could use a little aesthetic work. Any suggestions you might have on that one or future graphs would be helpful. Thanks! JKBrooks85 (talk) 02:11, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Just making sure this is ok with you, and I would of course use the credit info you requested: © 2010, Jeremy Atherton. Hope this is ok, thanks!! –Erin

No problem. Thanks for the message. —JeremyA (talk) 19:47, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Problem user User:Akalethia[edit]

You banned User:Akalethia for continued uploading of copyrighted images, upon viewing his uploads today I believe all his current uploads are again copyright violations. The one I tagged for speedy is clearly a copyright violation, the others have different meta tags and are VEEEERY likely pulled from online photo albums, one even has a Picasa tag which means its probably from Picasa Web Albums. Just bringing this to your attention since you've dealt with this user in the past. — raeky (talk | edits) 19:28, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Deleted Multiple Photos[edit]

Hi,

You have deleted multiple photos that I am the owner of. The pages you deleted photos from are:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Buried_Life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonnie_Penn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duncan_Penn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Nemtin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Lingwood

I work directly with these guys and all photos that were submitted today, we do own. Please email me kim@theburiedlife.com so this can be sorted out. In the meantime, these have been added back. We are trying to create individual wiki pages for each cast member, however Wikipedia is making it VERY difficult to do so.

Thanks, —JeremyA (d) 20:58, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

using your picture of Lasalle Street Bridge[edit]

I am doing a brochure for the National Trust for HIstoric Preservation to promote a tour to Chicago. May I use your Lasalle Street bridge picture if I provide your copyright beside the photo credit?

That's OK. No problem. —JeremyA (talk) 01:59, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Used your photo of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago. Thanks for sharing (put the copyright in, of course)

That's great. Thanks for letting me know.—JeremyA (talk) 13:33, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

About images[edit]

Please tell me how all those photos were copyright violations! I want you to give me proof and I wanna know now! I want you to tell me the real truth or I will talk to an admin about how you assaulted me! Give me your proof and it will be fine!! OZODOR (talk) 00:27, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Well I guess I did screw up, although you would never know if I uploaded the photos to Flickr!! I work for the CTA you know!!
It's perfectly possible to trick people into believing that photos you've stolen are yours. But if you work for the CTA, why would you want to? You should be able to go take photos of the parts of the L that you want to illustrate yourself.—JeremyA (talk) 01:15, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the information you have given me. I look forward to doing the best I can on the Commons, but I'm only a rookie, so it gets hard when you don't know what you're doing! Thanks! OZODOR (talk) 00:09, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Sorry![edit]

Sorry about the file I uploaded. I know Wikimedia Commons has strict copyright restrictions; I thought we were allowed to use CC-BY-NC here because we're non-profit, but I see now that we don't qualify to use this type of image. Entropy (talk) 02:33, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

Files to be deleted[edit]

Hi, I send you this message to ask if you can delete the following pictures:

File:Jaguar Mk2.JPG
File:Jaguar Mk2 Rear.JPG

The reason for my deletion request is because those files had a wrong name. They don't show a Jaguar but a Daimler (very similar to a Jaguar but it's not a Jaguar). I've already uploaded the same pictures with the right name and I've removed all the Categories in the pictures to be deleted. Please let me know if the there's something wrong with it. Thank you for all. Bye Bye. --Luc106 (talk) 07:43, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
