Hi Jon, since Kjetil is on a wikiholiday at the moment, would you mind investigating this image (ie. ask the uploader about the source and licensing, since I have some doubts it's acceptable)? Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:19, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Also this one Image:Freesbie-1.1.png - I suspect this is actually a screenshot of free-licensed software, in which case it's OK and can be tagged {{free screenshot |license=GPL}} (or something like that...) (BTW I'm asking you about these images because they're used in no.wp) --pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:24, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
The first image was made by the uploader, for a bittorrent group he's in, and he has chosen to release it under those licenses. On the second, I don't know the uploader. THe screenshot is of FreeSBIE – the name suggests that it is free, but the website doesn't mention a license. Jon Harald Søby 22:36, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
FreeBSIE is licensed under a BSD-style license - the same as FreeBSD -, and completely open. As for the GUI, I do not know. There are also FireFox logos visible, of which the license status is also unknown to me. Siebrand 12:23, 20 June 2006 (UTC)


  • This is the reason because the word support is in the template {{concordo}}. Support was provisional only. I don't call stupid anyone. Greetings. --Prevert(talk) 10:27, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Well, "a favor" may be a bit problematic, since it actually means something in English. "Concordo", however, doesn't mean anything, and the icon makes it quite obvious what it means, so I don't think the translation is necessary. Jon Harald Søby 10:45, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I prefer concordo without support but to avoid misunderstanding, I include this provisional word. Greetings. --Prevert(talk) 11:18, 21 June 2006 (UTC)


Hello. WikiThanks.pngThanks for bringing that to my attention, it was purely due to carelessness. Ciao.--Orgullomoore 12:37, 21 June 2006 (UTC)


Hi I just wanted to add you to the admin list templates and now I see that youd did so already. Thanks :-) As well congratulations for the large list of supporters of your vote. Don't loose the fun with these admin rights. ;-) If you have any questions for example on deletion guidelines just ask me (I am as well on IRC in #wikipedia-de oder #wikimedia-commons channel most of the time). As you already know Category:Against policy and Category:Unknown need urgently some help on reducing the number of copyvios awaiting their deletion. ;-) Have fun, Arnomane 20:52, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Thank you! =) Jon Harald Søby 07:55, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

not used anywhere?[edit]

Hi, Jon.

Some strange entries appeared on our CommonsTicker: You deleted Image:Bandera de Villajoyosa.gif and Image:Bandera de Buñol.gif (superseeded by the png versions), explicity saying not used anywhere, but they were! [1] Was the CheckUsage drunk that day? ;-)

Platonides 18:18, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about that! There were about 30 or so "Bandera de *.gif" images for Spanish municipalities, all in the same style; after checking the ten first, of which none were used, I only checked every fourth image or so, assuming that they had all been replaced by PNGs. But I guess that didn't go for them all. Sorry for the inconvenience. Jon Harald Søby 09:54, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Feil lisens Øvstebø.jpg[edit]

Har prøvd å laste opp igjen, men den første lisensen blir hengende.

--Frode Inge Helland 16:28, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Det virker riktig for meg, med {{PD-old}}. Og jeg tviler litt på at du har tatt bildet sjøl, slik det står på beskrivelsessida…? Jon Harald Søby 16:44, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

manglende lisens for 1978_Aurlandsdalen_Øystøylene1.jpg[edit]

Jon Harald, jeg vet ikke hva som skjedde, men jeg kommer ikke inn på billedsiden for å legge inn lisens. Har prøvd å laste det opp en gang til, uten at jeg ser noen endring. --Frode Inge Helland 17:05, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Commons-l subscription[edit]

Hello Jon Harald Søby/Archive/2,

as per Commons talk:Administrators, I am asking all admins to subscribe to commons-l, a mailing list for Wikimedia Commons policy and project discussion. Since many admins are only on Commons infrequently, this is a good way to alert people about important happenings. The mailing list is nominally multilingual, but predominantly English.

If you are already subscribed to commons-l, I apologize for bothering you, and you are free to ignore this message. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail account, feel free to leave me a message, and I can send you a GMail invite. Traffic on the mailing list is relatively low, and we do not expect admins to read all messages to the list, but it would be nice if you could check on it at least every few weeks. Thanks for your time,--Eloquence 22:59, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: Image:Loading.gif[edit]

Yes, I made that image, with some help from my brother. But it's really inspired on Firefox loading icon. Should I say it on the image description? I will do it now. Thanks, FlipDarius 18:49, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your welcome[edit]

Because it's nice to be nice. --Robdurbar 12:33, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Spor etter slettet bilde[edit]

Jeg leter etter spor etter et bilde som angivelig skal ha ligget her: Motorsykkel Utrykningsenhet(MUE).jpg . Jeg finner det ikke i slettingsloggen. ref.. __meco 12:38, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Ja, bildet har vært her, men blei sletta fordi det ikke hadde noen lisens. Jon Harald Søby 10:49, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
Ja, det var det som ble opplyst. Men hvor ser jeg det? __meco 11:12, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
Bildet? Her (veit ikke om det funker om en ikke er admin). Loggen? Her. Jon Harald Søby 11:24, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
Kunne du finne fram hvem som lastet opp bildet i sin tid så jeg kan be vedkommende laste det opp på nytt, med lisens? __meco 16:38, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
Oslo medic lasta det opp. Jon Harald Søby 10:57, 20 July 2006 (UTC)


Hey, could you please explain how Image:Wikipedia-banner(no)-Øyenstikkere.jpg can be both GFDL and copyrighted? IMO GFDL should be removed, or not? Siebrand 14:50, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, the main image by Aka is GFDL, while the Wikipedia logo is copyrighted. I'm not sure if it's ok with GFDL to just remove the tag. The original image, WIKIPEDIA ANZEIGE3 libelle.jpg, uses GFDL only, but I'm not sure if that's ok, as the logo is being used there too. So I'm not sure what to do about that, frankly… Jon Harald Søby 10:46, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
Would it be a good idea to discuss it on a licensing page? Siebrand 20:53, 18 July 2006 (UTC)


Kan ikke du ta på deg å rydde opp i virvaret av «XX in Norway»/«XX of Norway»/«Norwegian XX». Standarden er visstnok «XX of Norway»? Ensarta praksis hadde gjort arbeidet mye enklere. Mahlum 20:06, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Det er en bot som driver med det nå. Jon Harald Søby 11:05, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Image:Wikipedia logo silver.png[edit]

[2] --Steschke 11:38, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Darn. I wrote "{{Copyr" in the description field and got {{Copyright Wikimedia}}, so I assumed I had added that before and that it was correct. But it wasn't... Thanks for telling me. Crystal Clear app amor.png Jon Harald Søby 11:53, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
Gerne geschehen ;-) --Steschke 11:59, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
Ah, the Norwegian Wikipedia uses Copyright Wikimedia! That's why it appeared in the description field. (Someone just changed the template, so I became aware of it again (I initially created it).) Jon Harald Søby 19:33, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

File:40px-United Federation of Planets flag.png[edit]

What about it is against policy? Image is PD-ineligable, being that small it looks nothing like the one that appeared on the show. --Cool CatTalk|@ 12:30, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

It is still a derivation of a copyrighted image, and can't be used. (Oh, and I don't make the rules, I just follow them. Crystal ksmiletris.png Jon Harald Søby 13:49, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
