Well, you can thank user:DVD R W for this message, not the bot. And you are allowed to remove it, of course. :P --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 02:47, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I saw that... it was a little roguish of me to post that on your feedback page, apologies... it is a little large and colorful, though - almost intimidating. I prefer short, friendly welcome messages myself. The large ones make it look like there is a great deal to learn, and indeed there is, but one can easily contribute without knowing 99% of it, and learn as one goes along. One puppy's opinion. KillerChihuahua 11:25, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
I got mine too after I'd been here a while [1] I still click the links on it all the time. I just don't like to see someone who has a talkpage with no talking on it, and didn't know how else to break the ice. See this [2] for the company your in for having recieved one from me :-) DVD R W 16:12, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
And an observation on the colorfulness of that template, I think the Commons tends to attract the more imagey people, who think more about graphics than text. That is why I think this welcome message has taken off here, I could be wrong though. DVD R W 17:05, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

  • so pls provide the ticket number. Its kind of essential when you stated that you arent an author and a picture was obtained from other source. Masur (talk) 04:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm looking for the damn thing. It was formerly not particularly important, especially before OTRS even got started, you know? So not like I made a habit of it. Also trying to recover my email from my dead computer, having no success there either.I have, however, taken the step of re-emailing PZ and asking him to send a new email, this time directly to permissions, so one way or another this should be handled quite soon. I have removed the big loud template from my page; please do not replace it, thanks. I am more than willing to continue this discussion but as it was clear before you placed the template that I was aware of the base situation, templating me seems unnecessary. Since PZ sent me the image for use on Wikipedia himself, there is no question of permission, merely of legal paperwork. Surely a little patience is not too much to ask.

OTRS frustration[edit]

Hi KillerChihuahua. I am having a problem uploading a photograph in connection with OTRS. I have the email permission from the photographer and have sent it on to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org. Now I am trying to upload the photo in Commons. I click that it is someone else's work and get hung up in the "Release Rights" step. I don't understand how to input the OTRS information about getting permission already and having a license to enter. The wizard isn't making it clear to me. I re-read the directions under "OTRS" which tell me I am supposed to upload the photo then "tag the file [double-parenthesis]subst: OP[double-parenthesis]" but I don't understand what to tag or how to do this with the wizard. Do you mind explaining this to me? It would help with the massive frustration which has been building for the last hour as I have tried to unsuccessfully to upload the file. I am sure the wizard is great, but in the old days I used to be able to handle this OTRS business with no problem, grumble, grumble. Thank you. Hisland7 5 Aug '12 ####

Sorry, I wasn't online yesterday. Are you still struggling with this, or have you found help elsewhere? KillerChihuahua (talk) 17:01, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
My struggle continues. In fact, I'm stymied. Your interest is very much appreciated. By the way, I thought I used to sign discussion pages with #### for my username and date. It didn't seem to work.
No, it's ~~~~. You were right that it was a symbol repeated four times, but it is a tilde not a hash. Let me take a look at the pages as they are currently, and I will get back to you here shortly. KillerChihuahua (talk) 17:29, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok, the parens are actually curly braces {{ and }} and that indicates a template. OP is OTRS pending, which means the permissions has been sent to OTRS and the image is waiting on an OTRS volunteer to verify the permissions. After you select the file to upload, the next screen is release options. Choose the radio button for This file is not my own work. and fill in the source and author name. Below, choose Another reason not mentioned above and type or paste {{subst:oP}}. That should do it. KillerChihuahua (talk) 17:38, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
You are so kind to help me. I followed your instructions. What happened next was a red error prompt telling me the following, "This does not seem to be valid wikitext, or does not contain a license." So then I pasted after {{subst:OP}} the license in the exact wording from the permission template, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0, but I still got the same error prompt. Can you think of what I might be doing wrong? Thank you again for your help.Hisland7 (talk) 18:55, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure; have you considered taking a different tack? Try using the old form rather than the Wizard. It is located at Commons:Upload. KillerChihuahua (talk) 20:21, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
