File:Manif contre Acta-capture d'écran 015.png[edit]

Hi. In OTRS system we have a restoration request about File:Manif contre Acta-capture d'écran 015.png

I saw the deletion log, and I ask yourself, how to act?

Greetings, Alan Lorenzo (talk) 23:52, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

If I remember correctly the speedy request was made by the uploader himself with the statement that he would reupload it with the correct permissions.--KTo288 (talk) 14:40, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Ticket replied and closed. Alan Lorenzo (talk) 21:22, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome,feel free to contact me if my memory was faulty, or if I misread the uploaders reequest.--KTo288 (talk) 21:24, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Guidance[edit]

Hi, you recently commented at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Fiesto bathtub that the files should have been tagged for speedy. Is there a way to do that using VisualFileChange.js? TIA. Rahul Bott (talk) 13:01, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

I personally don't use scripts or gadgets, so I'm the wrong person to ask for guidance on this, I normally do everything longhand by adding {{speedy|reason for deletion}} to the file, see Category:Candidates for speedy deletion.--KTo288 (talk) 13:06, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Nevermind, thanks anyways! Probably some admins visiting your talk page may be of help! Regards, Rahul Bott (talk) 16:34, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Been here to long all these new fangled gadgets and aids to editing have passed me by.--KTo288 (talk) 18:17, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Alfredo Conde‎[edit]

Why you move images back to category:Alfredo Conde‎ in AELG‎?--Juandev (talk) 15:03, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

All the categories in Category:Images from AELG are of the same form. As I see it the ...in AELG, provides in addition to being a category of writers from Galicia, is a category of the source of the images, just as we have images from NASA or the Bundesarchive etc. adding such a source category to Category:Alfredo Conde is not appropriate as not al the images in that category are from that source. Both categories have been kept and nested.--KTo288 (talk) 15:09, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

But do you see there any category named XY in Bundesarchive? I dont. I see for example Category:Holger Börner (not Category:Holger Börner in Bundesarchive or Category:Holger Börner in German Federal Archive). It seems to me logic to group pictures which depicts Holger Börner to the basic Category:Holger Börner. As far as I never seen at Commons categorization of people by their membership in associations. Thus I thing pictures of Alfredo Conde‎ (or any other AELG writer) should be in basic category Alfredo Conde. And if you see more categories like XY in AELG, they are all wrong and should be removed than. As far as I know, we categorise images according the visible layer. So could be Barack Obama in San Francico, could be even Barack Obama in Harvard (in the case it was taken at Harvard), but cant be group of pictures Barack Obama in Asociation of the American Presidents, BO in Domocratical Party etc. If someone needs such categories, I would call them technical and thus they should be hidden.--Juandev (talk) 08:32, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

From what I can see, the categories were created by a bot which uploaded the images from the AELG website, so that in addition to the individual authors belonging to the organisation, the organisation is the source of the images. Its the way the bot named the images using "in" which I guess is the reason why this is not apparent. For Barack Obama we have for example Category:Images from FEMA, category Presidential Visit, FEMA being the source of the images. For some categories categorisation by source is accepted in others the source category is used as a holding pen until the files/subcategories are better sorted, in this case because AELG is both the source of the images and an organisation that all the subjects belong to, I think its a useful intersection to keep.--KTo288 (talk) 18:15, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

But in this case FEMA is being place on images, so it does have a sense. On the other side AELG is not a place - it is a virtual body.--Juandev (talk) 05:28, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Although they must have offices I would consider FEMA as more of an organisation than as a physical place, it'll take some time but perhaps the best thing would be renaming the categories to example Category:Photographs of Alfredo Conde from AELG.--KTo288 (talk) 05:34, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Within the time, I called for deletion of that and those category, so lets allow others to come up with their point of view.--Juandev (talk) 05:50, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

This would have been better served being discussed at Commons:Categories for discussion, but no matter.--KTo288 (talk) 07:23, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Copyright[edit]

Hi KTo288,

Please see OTRS ticket number 2013041210006207 for evidence that copyright has been granted on these images.

Many thanks, Tom McGuinness

Checked at OTRS, and another admin was enquiring about these, I wanted to wait until there was a reply there. However in the interim and these have been restored by another admin. My apologies for what an implicit accusation of making copyright violations.--KTo288 (talk) 12:57, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Editing other's comments[edit]

It's a particularly underhand tactic to edit another editor's comments in a debate in a way that makes them look like an idiot, then to criticize precisely that invented action! I'm really not happy about this and it's not something that is ever accepted across WM. Why?! Andy Dingley (talk) 09:34, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

My mistake, not exactly sure how it happened, but it was not an attempt to make you look like an idiot.--KTo288 (talk) 10:05, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for deleting all those redundant categories (e.g. Category:Mountains of Dundee et al). All the best! Laerol (talk) 17:32, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Categories by day[edit]

Please do not delete any more of the categories nominated for speedy deletion by RolandZH, there has not been any kind of consensus those category are useless. --Abderitestatos (talk) 19:33, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

The established consensus is empty categories can be speedily deleted whoever nominates them, and these cats shoud be of significant news worthy events, e.g. demonstrations, disasters, major sports events etc rather then some haphazard photograph that just happens to have occured on such and such a date. As a courtesy to you I'll hold of deleting until say this time tomorrow, and only delete if you cannot populate these categories with non random files.--KTo288 (talk)

Category:Airmen[edit]

Hi, Kto288, you recently created a new Category:Airmen, but it seems to at least overlap with Category:Air force people, Category:Aircrew members and Category:Aviators. I'm just an aircraft recognition buff, but the whole category tree between Aviation and People seems to be a bit of a mess - perhaps you can help organise it better with unambiguous cat names, definitions, cat redirects etc. Another issue I'm not clear about is how named people can be differentiated from the unnamed people - categories and images for named individuals seem to be randomly scattered all over the place. MTIA, PeterWD (talk) 08:19, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

As I've discovered Commons is a work in progress, if you let trying to getting categories absolutely correct, you'll let it drive you crazy, the only way I've avoided burnout or being booted off Commons is not to to take anything to strongly and expect things to be difinitively fixed. Okay back to yor question, as one aviation buff to another, although pilots and aircrew members get to fly it is because of a great number of people on the ground, and especially in airforces, the number who get to fly are only a small number of the total, you have artificers and armourers, firemen and engineers etc. The reason I created the file is because of File:Pakistani F2000.JPEG, its a file of Pakistan Air Force airmen on exercise, which was categorised in the category soldiers, as you can see they are not aircrew. A similar situation would exist for RAF Regiment aircraftmen and USAF force protection airmen.--KTo288 (talk) 16:01, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

You are receiving this message because you voted in the 2012 Picture of the Year contest.

Galleries in category space[edit]

Sorry but galleries in category space is against the conventions here, its okay to create gallery pages for navigation though and this is what I'm doing to Category:Categories with a gallery for a better choice of sub-categories which will be suppressed when finished.--KTo288 (talk) 15:15, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

I dont understand what you want to do. On some categories with many images, I thought that it was interesting to create gallery in order than contributors upload their images in subcategories and not in a crowded category. What is the problem ? --Tangopaso (talk) 20:33, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Categories for discussion/2013/10/Category:Actual barnstars and Commons:Categories for discussion/2013/10/Category:Barnstars[edit]

Has this actually been done? The cfd tags are still on the categories and nothing much seems to have been moved. --rimshottalk 18:11, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Its still a work in progress, manage to rehome over half of the individual files, running out off steam with the remainder.--KTo288 (talk) 21:06, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
The closing comments on the CFDs are not quite clear. What do you intend to move where? A simple category move can be requested at User:CommonsDelinker/commands or its talk page for non-admins. This shouldn't need to take weeks. --rimshottalk 22:53, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
Using a category move will just be moving one overcroded namespace to another namespace, rather than having all of them in one category, instead they are being diffused into subcategories by design, use and status etc. as subcategories of Category:Wikimedia barnstars.--KTo288 (talk) 23:07, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for blocking me for a duration of 3 days ![edit]

Hello! I want to thank you for blocking user Musichistory2009 for a duration of three days. I realize that administrators of your kind aren't moving forward things (in general) and this project (in particular). I had a lot of good contributions at commons during the last couple of years, I've done a lot of corrections at this project. These days I'm working (or at least I was working) at correcting, standardization and arrangement of cities of Romania categories. I've put the correct city name for the cities I had done, and I've eliminated category redirects, replacing the links to the redirects with the right ones. It was no problem at all with all the administrators, until I've met you! You've banned me for a minor thing, an unused category redirect (with the wrong name). Suddenly, I've realized that Comănești is very important, since it's the only town that needs this kind of category redirect. It's your opinion, and you have to be right. Probably you're always right, because you're an administrator. Congratulations! All of my work had no value for you and, so, you took a hasty and exaggerated decision: to block me. I just want to tell you that you can block me forever, if it makes you feel better. I really want you to feel better and very strong. So, make whatever you need to feel better. Thank you again for stopping me from working and next time try to be an administrator in North Korea.

In addition to other concerns I have with your editing, the block was for edit warring, not for that category per-se. You were entitled to nominate that cat for regular DR, but to add the speedy again, and when another editor removed the speedy to nominate for speedy again. Blocks work on an escalating basis, you have already earned a 1 day block from another admin for edit warring, the next block for edit warring will be for 7 days, and so on. --KTo288 (talk) 17:10, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Reply to email sent to me.
If you felt that I was mistaken you should have opened a DR; or better still put it up for a Cfd becausea s you said it does not affect just one category. As i've said the block is not for disagreeing with me but for edit warring, and not just on this one category.
Different admins see things differently but I work on the principle that Commons is a multilingual project, but with the main category tree in English, redirects should therefore exist for non English speakers to find the pages and categories they are looking for using the search box. I must note that diacritics are not used in English so actually the correct name for the categories would be without diacritics; with the ones you consider to be correct the actual redirects. This is I believe the state of affairs before your so called corrections and the status quo. --KTo288 (talk) 09:23, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Re: Removing descriptions in other languages[edit]

Can I ask the reasoning for this edit? and why you think its justified--KTo288 (talk) 21:13, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Of course you can ask, especially since you are watching every step I make. I've removed the long description text because commons is a files repository and not a wikipedia article with much information. But, more important, to standardize the categories of Romanian cities (320 cities, so 320 categories). I've done so far the cities of 26 counties and I have 15 more. I'd like to finish them, of course, if you don't block me again. The cities I've made have the descriptions in English in Romanian (which are the most relevant). The great majority of them had no description at all (besides this, some of the cities didn't have all the categories needed). There were two or three city categories with long and useless descriptions in a lot of languages (for that, there are the wikipedia articles). I've sacrified the long descriptions for those 2-3 cities to have all the cities categories in the same shape.

About the redirects, you've said: redirects should therefore exist for non English speakers to find the pages and categories they are looking for using the search box. I must note that diacritics are not used in English so actually the correct name for the categories would be without diacritics. In the near future (if you don't block me, of course) I'll create a redirect category page for each city that has Romanian characters (with diacritics). So, Comănești (Comanesti) won't be the only one. Musichistory, an unblocked user (for the moment).

The description was not long, just lots of short descriptions in multiple languages. Why do you think its right to sacrifice other languages in favour of Romanian and English. Commoms is a mulitlingual project, every language is important to someone. Why do you think all the categories have to look exactly the same with just Romanian and English. If you think it unwieldy the descriptions can be collapsed using a template so that only the language the user is interested in is displayed.--KTo288 (talk) 21:48, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I know that the "short" descriptions can be collapsed using a template. It's no news for me. But I think that Romanian and English should have priority for two obvious reasons: Romanian - because there are Romanian cities, and English - because it's the universal language, the most relevant language at Wikimedia commons. It's quite easy what you are doing. You see a singular category, an exception (like I've said, there were only 2 or 3 categories with descriptions in many languages) and you try to find mistakes in my work. Anyone can do that. If you really care about what I'm doing, why don't you add descriptions in 1000 languages for all the 320 cities of Romania? Instead, you try to oppose me and ask me for a lot of explanations and arguments. I can give you that, but it slows me down. For the category names you've blocked me because "Comăneşti" has Romanian characters, and the category at commons must have only English names and characters. For the descriptions, English isn't so important anymore, and the city of Gheorgheni shoud have descriptions in all the languages known to human kind (and probably some unknown). Musichistory, an unblocked user (for the moment).
Yes I do want to slow you down, to use a bit more thought before yu edit, to think about how your edits will look to others, the confidence that you are always right and everybody else is wrong is worrying in a collaborative project as is the casual disregard of their work.
Its exactly because categories are in English the backbone of the category tree is in English that redirects and descriptions in other languages are important for users with other languages.
I think you have made a mistake with Gheorgheni, would you please undo the edit that removed the other decriptions, and of the other categories that you removed the descriptions from.--KTo288 (talk)
Yes I do want to slow you down shows me exactly what I've already knew. Also, you tell me to use a bit more thought before I edit. I can tell you exactely the same thing about your action, when you blocked me. You could tell before blocking me that what I've done was wrong, you could try to explain, you could corect me, you could warn me, but instead you have suddenly just blocked me. That's why I told you that you were acting in the North Korean style in that situation. I'm not telling that you're not a good administrator, but in my case you've acted brutally and, in my opinion, that isn't what a good administrator is supposed to do. An administrator is NOT a dictator, even though he has the weapon, the gun (the possibility of blocking someone). I don't thing that I'm always right and everybody else is wrong. This is something you've thought when you blocked me, because if you weren't so sure that you were right, you would debate, explain, correct, and not act brutally. The act ifself shows me how sure you wore of your rightness.
The supposed disregard of other people work at wikimedia commons is false. All I'm trying to do is to correct errors and emprove this project. I've made a lot of corrections of categories what were categorized completely wrong, I've corrected serious mistakes, I've seen (for example) subcategories of a town in Serbia that were put under the categories of a town in Romania, and so on. Why don't you try to correct this obvious mistakes? I'm assuring you that if I had deleted some descriptions in some languages I've done it for Wikimedia Commons to look better. So, before I append the descriptions in another 1000 languages for Gheorgheni, I ask you: isn't it a shame to spoil the uniformization and the standard for all the Romanian cities with this singular case?
I feel that you take this matter a little too personally and a good and useful administrator shouldn't have personal disputes here. Why are you the only administrator that has an obvious problem with my work? I'm sorry but I don't want any kind of personal disputes here. It's obvious that you are not objective in my case, probably because I was kind of ironic with you. But you must understand me: you have your weapon (the blocking), I have to have mine (the irony).
Respectfully, Musichistory, a user that hopes that you are clever enough not to pull the trigger again.
The last line of my 7th March post was "Please take this as a warning not to edit war." and two posts before this was your 1 day block on the 17th February for edit warring. In case you haven't noticed we take a dim view on edit warring, maybe I was being too polite and did not give you a stern enough warning at the time. Actually I don't mind your hyperbole (your humour is not irony-irony in this case would be you calling me a wise, fair and wonderful admin who can do no wrong and that you deserved your slapdown, this would be ironic because it is the opposite of what you believe), it is far better than ignoring messages on your page, not addressing concerns raised and then being confused and angry when someone "pulls the trigger". Believe me I have better things to do then constantly look over your shoulder, but I will "pull the trigger", after fair warning, as many times as needed if it is deserved. I'm actually not going to have internet access over the next month, so will be unable to look over your shoulder even if I wanted to, so you'll have free rein, just be sure its not rope for your own neck.--KTo288 (talk) 16:08, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Out of patrol and request for a tool[edit]

As you probably know, not a long time ago I've got the right not the be patrolled anymore, because I'm an experienced user that knows what he is doing. You are still patroling me, but that's alright, because I don't intend to do damages and wrong edits at commons. I don't mind if you patrol me, I'm just honored and flattered that you find such an interest in my work.
If you really want to help me, you could suggest where I can find a tool that extracts from Wikidata the list of article titles of a city in all the languages available. There was a tool of this kind which I had used, but it's not available anymore. I need the list ([[de:Article_name]] [[en:Article_name]] [[ro:Article_name]] ....) to put it at the end of each wikimedia commons city of Romania category. Thank you in advance, Musichistory.

Sorry I can't help you with finding a tool, but I can suggest a workaround. Go to one of the articles at a wikipedia e.g. English or Roumanian. In the sidebar under "languages" is a button called "edit links" clicking on this should take you to the Wikidata page for the topic.--KTo288 (talk) 16:41, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
The same button also appears in Commons, but what comes up is a popup to which you can add a link to an article at a wikipedia. Both these require the bot to do the actual linking which it may refuse to do.--KTo288 (talk) 16:58, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Gheorgheni - the most important city at Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Ok, I've seen you rolled back the category of Gheorgheni. It's no problem. I will only put the corect categories if you don't mind, and edit only the descriptions in English and Romanian (after the standardization), leaving all the others descriptions. I think this is fair enough.

When you come back from your one month vacation, you won't find me here anymore, because I intend to leave commons in one week (aproximately). It's not your fault that I'm leaving, but I guess a have better fish to fry.

Musichistory2009, a user sitting in front of your "trigger".

We all need to break from things every now and then, it helps put things in perspective, thank you for your past enthusiasm editing and categorisation, and hope that sometime in the future that it will return. No irony of any sort intended.--KTo288 (talk) 16:54, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

File:Flickr Tony Duell RSCN0878 (9268329126).jpg[edit]

I have now removed the finger mark from File:Clapton bus garage, 19 September 2012.jpg. Hopefully now it should be more obvious why I chose to retain that one over this image. My only use for it was to show the widest possible scene and to create the close crop derivative. I have absolutely no use for this intermediate size - had I noticed it was the same photo I would never have even uploaded it. Hence why I did not bother to name it, describe it, categorise it, or link it with the others via other_version, instead choosing to speedy delete it. Hopefully that better informs you about what is the common sense thing to do now with File:Flickr Tony Duell RSCN0878 (9268329126).jpg, for the benefit of both users and editors.

TVBS588你好
我對比Flickr和元本上傳Commons的文件許可時,Flickr的許可是有「只許非商業用途的」此限制不符合Commons的許可協議,我們只好刪除它。你後來上傳的文件同之前剛剛刪除的是同一的,以你只有說是自己的作品,没有來源,許可等等的證明。很抱歉,我們實在見了太多类似這的事情,是一体不明白Commons的使命,它的文化和許可協議的上傳者的做法,因此我再刪除這文件。其實我們是有渠道放復錯誤刪除的文件,我留在你用戶討論頁的通知模板裡有轉到Commons:Undeletion requests的鏈接。
Commons對版權十分重視,文件每個要有清楚的來源,明確和符合Commons的許可。很多時上傳者會利用Flickr清洗侵犯版權的文件(Commons:License laundering),希望你沒見怪,就算User:TVBS588和Flickr的TVBS Liu真是同一人,我們也不能進信你的說話,很抱歉你一片紅的上傳記錄更令我難相信你對版權同Commons的認識。
此時請你利用Commons:Undeletion requests來要求這文件的放復,可能你要用Commons:OTRS來證明你是這文件的創建者。--KTo288 (talk) 22:14, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
English:
Hi TVBS588, When I compared the Flickr files and Commons uploads, those at Flickr had the restriction of "no commercial use" which is not compatible with Commons Licensing, we therefore had to delete them. Subsequently you uploaded files which were identical to those just deleted, claiming that it was your own work but without evidence of source, permissions e.t.c. Sorry, but we see too much of this kind of thing by uploaders who do not understand Common's mission, culture and licensing policy, I therefore again deleted these files. Actually we do have a channel to restore wrongly deleted files, within the message template that I left on your talk page is a link which would have gone to Commons:Undeletion requests. Commons takes copyrights very seriously, files must be clear with regards to source, and have a proper and Commons compatible license. Often uploaders will use Flickr for the license laundering of copyvios, please don't be offended but even if User:TVBS588and Flickr's TVBS Liu are one and the same person, we can not now just take you on your word completely, sorry but the page of red in your upload history makes it difficult for me to trust your understanding of copyright and of Commons. At this time please use Commons:Undeletion Requests to ask for the restoration of these files, you may need to use Commons:OTRS to prove that you are these files creator.--KTo288 (talk) 22:41, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, looked at it and I think I've now fixed it, error caused by not paying attention when cutting and pasting during the merging of a duplicate, will be more careful in future.--KTo288 (talk) 10:13, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Seoul Montage 2013[edit]

Hello. I am the creator of the montage on the Seoul page of the English Wikipedia File:Seoul montage 2013.jpg. I just found out that there seems to be a problem with it concerning copyright. Am I understanding correctly that the image of N Seoul Tower in the center is somehow in violation of copyright, even though I took the image myself? I am willing to replace that image with something else if necessary. But I am unclear as to how/why it infringes upon copyright. Any explanation would be appreciated.

I can see that you are a very serious editor and administrator. And I thank you for all the work you do on Commons. I just don't understand the problem. I currently live in Seoul, and have taken hundreds, if not thousands, of pictures here. I'm happy to replace the image if necessary. But I'd hate to replace the image with another problematic image. Thank you for your good work! Mark Froelich (talk) 00:35, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

The thing is not your copyright of the photograph, its the copyright for the structure, which belongs to the architect. It's not just this file that it affects, a fuller discussion of the issues at play is at Commons:Village_pump/Copyright#No_Commercial_reuse_FoP_in_South_Korea.2C_files_of_modern_buildings. Basically pictures of modern buildings in South Korea, will probably have to be considered off limits with regards to Commons. So it would be great if you can replace the N Seoul Tower image with something else, but that something else cannot be a modern building, we haven't really been able to come up with a clear year to apply to such cases, but as a, better to be safe then sorry, guideline any building for which the architect is still alive, or who hasn't been dead for at least 70 years, is probably off limits. I'm afraid, that as far as Commons is concerned, architecturally South Korea is going to look like a Joseon theme park.---KTo288 (talk) 07:26, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your speedy response. I will take a look at the link you have provided. And I will start considering what vertical symbol I could put in the tower's place. Maybe I have a self-taken, centered image of the Gyeongcheonsa Pagoda on my computer somewhere. It's tall. And it's actually pre-Joseon! I will let you know what I come up with. Thanks again. Mark Froelich (talk) 08:11, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh. Then again, that pagoda isn't originally from Seoul. (Though it's here now.) So maybe that wouldn't be great. I'll rummage.Mark Froelich (talk) 08:14, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Thankyou for taking the time and effort to offer to fix this for us, I forgot to mention this earlier, but the reason I said on Commons:Graphic_Lab/Photography_workshop#New_photo_montages_of_Seoul_needed that I was wary of in your montage, and that maybe it would be preferable to start that one from scratch, is because off all the pictures of statues, I'm less sure of it then I am of the N Seoul Tower, in general modern public artworks will fall foul of FoP in South Korea, however I don't know the year these works were created, and didn't think to add it at the DR. I'm really sorry that I didn't mention this earlier,-KTo288 (talk) 10:29, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
