王维诗画[edit]

Why did you delete File:王维诗画.jpg? It was quite obviously old. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 07:56, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm not a mind reader as to how old a piece of art is. If you know specifics about it, please enlighten me. Using Google translate, I see very little information given for this file other than a use of a Chinese form of {{own}} for the source, and "范孝三" for the author, which Google says means "Noritaka 3". Killiondude (talk) 08:00, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
That is also about as far as I had come; the category given only said "paintings". But one probably does not need to be a mind reader, as there was quite a bit of text in the figure. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 08:07, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
So now you've changed your opinion of it from being "obviously old" to it being old because of the "text in the figure", of which neither of us can read. I'll ask a Chinese speaking admin to take a look. Killiondude (talk) 08:09, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

File:Radisson SAS H C Andersen Hotel Odense.JPG[edit]

You deleted this because it had no source/license. It had {{own}} and {{PD-self}}. What can be missing? --MGA73 (talk) 10:55, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Look at their deleted files. Things like Special:Undelete/File:Farmakonomskolen Pharmakon - The Danish College of Pharmacy Practice - Haven - The Garden.JPG (and many others in there) look like copyvios. The images are very, very small, as if they had been copied from a website or some online source. They also didn't have any metadata, if I recall correctly. EugeneZelenko (talk · contribs) is usually good about finding files that have similar situations like this (he is the one who tagged it as missing a source). Killiondude (talk) 17:14, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
But how is uploader going to know what the problem is if there is not given any good description of the problem? In my opinion it would be fair to start an ordenary DR or at least tell the uploader if the problem is, that you do not believe that it is own work. How is uploader going to guess what the problem is? --MGA73 (talk) 17:36, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
The warnings on their talk page about what is needed in a file should probably give them a clue. Especially the part that says If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. Anyways, I started this for you. Killiondude (talk) 17:43, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Perfect :-) Now he is told what the problem is. He has not been actice on dawiki since december so he might not see it but that is not our problem. --MGA73 (talk) 17:45, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Strange copyvio[edit]

Hello! I think you have mistakenly deleted File:Hhh.jpg. In the log summary, you state that this picture is a copyright violation of this one but the latter is provided under a CC-by license. Is there another reason for this deletion? — Xavier, 23:07, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

It is a copyright vio in my opinion, the one you listed was listed under no copy right at all and was not the original user thus did not have the right to free it of copyright, the one ti was deleted for was the original owner and thus has the right to do what he or she wants with it. This is evidenced by the meta data the fact the the flickr image matches that information.--   CR90  03:46, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply but I'm not sure I understand it. This flickr image is provided under a CC licence, therefore anyone has the right to upload it on Commons, as long as the original author and source are mentioned. I still don't see any reason for this deletion. Do you mean that the flickr user is him/herself infringing someone else's copyright? — Xavier, 01:54, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
No I mean the uploader of the File:Hhh.jpg image uploaded the photo as his own with the incorrect licensing and information, which is not possible for a variety of reasons, one of which is Triple H (the man in the photo) did not have a full beard in 2005 when the image was claimed to be taken by the uploader of the File:Hhh.jpg pic. Another is the meta data at the bottom claimed it was taken two years later, and that two years later data matches up with the image that was correctly uploaded from flickr, thus the old one was deleted as a copyvio (as it did not contribute to the proper author) and the one with the correct information stayed. I hope this clarified any misunderstandings, but if you do have anymore questions you can ask me on my talk page.--   CR90  05:09, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
The correct upload is located at File:Triple H sydney.jpg. Killiondude (talk) 05:11, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
Ok, now I get it, this is exactly what I was missing: an alternate image exists on Commons, with proper attribution. Thank you. — Xavier, 23:03, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Danny Silk[edit]

Danny Silk's images!

Hey why did you delete the images of Danny Silk. I am new to Wiki and the tech guy for lovingonpurpose.com who owns the rights to those images. I need an explanation! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.212.7.195 (talk • contribs)

Hi. I didn't delete it, since it is still viewable at File:Dannyleesilk.png. We need permission from the copyright holder (the person who took the photo) sent to OTRS to confirm that they agree to release it under a free license. This is because the author listed on the file page is "Graeme J Morris" and the uploader was "Soul.guardian" (not the same name). Please see Commons:Permission and COM:OTRS. Killiondude (talk) 17:54, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

File:NarbacularDropScreenshot.jpg[edit]

You deleted this image because of "No OTRS permission". There's a discussion going on at en:User talk:Materialscientist, section "Question about cross-deleted image", about this image's deletion, since Materialscientist deleted the image from Wikipedia because it was here. Would you please respond to the question? Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 02:20, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Done. Killiondude (talk) 05:26, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

File:Fucktext.svg[edit]

Hi! Is File:Fucktext.svg ineligible for copyright? Seems fairly lacking in creativity or originality to me. Cheers! --MZMcBride (talk) 04:23, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes. Changed accordingly. {{PD-text}}, {{PD-textlogo}}, {{PD-chem}}, {{PD-shape}}, and {{PD-old}} are fairly handy if one can remember them. Killiondude (talk) 07:15, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Neat, thanks! --MZMcBride (talk) 07:16, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

File:007_JPL.JPG[edit]

You stated that File:007_JPL.JPG was deleted, however is still there. Elekhh (talk) 04:11, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

My apologies. Should be taken care of now. Killiondude (talk) 04:19, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

We need your help at the Wikiproject medicine[edit]

Rod of asclepius.png

Hello, Sorry for spaming your talk page, but this is very important. On the behalf of the Wikiproject medicine at the en.wikipedia, I am inviting you to be a part of the discussion going on the project's talk page about Patient images, The discussion started after I obtained a permission to more than 23000 dermatology related images, and about 1500 radiology images. As some editors of the Wikiproject medicine have some concerns regarding the policy of using patient images on wikipedia, and regarding patient consents. Also they believe that common's policy is not so clear regarding the issue. And since you are the experts please join us at this very important discussion -- MaenK.A.Talk 14:23, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Files still awaiting OTRS confirmation[edit]

Hello, Killiondude. The file(s) listed below have been marked with {{OTRS received}}, but there has been no complete confirmation of its permission status in the last 30 days. From what I'm able to tell, you were the person who added this template. Would you mind taking a look at this again? If confirmation cannot be found, this file should probably be marked for deletion. This should be the only notification you will receive regarding this image, so long as the comment I added to the image description page is not altered. Thanks! HersfoldOTRSBot(talk/opt out) 00:54, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

If you are not an OTRS volunteer or did not add the "received" template to this file, it's possible I made a mistake identifying the correct user. I look for the most recent diff where the template was added, so if you reverted an edit where this template was removed, I can't tell the difference. If this is the case, please let my operator know at w:en:User talk:Hersfold. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The file(s) in question are:

Thanks[edit]

Thanks. Evrik (talk) 04:49, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

No problem. Thanks for all the work you do on Commons. Killiondude (talk) 19:32, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Trusted user[edit]

Hola Killiondude: Quería hacerte una consulta, vi que cambiaste mi perfil de usuario de "ninguno" a "autopatrulleros"... ¿Para que sirve eso? ¿Donde se puede chequear que tipo de perfil tiene uno? Desde ya muchas gracias. Saludos --Arcibel (talk) 14:17, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Hola Arcibel. Es un poco dificil a mi para explicar en espanol sobre este topico, y yo vi que no tenemos un transduccion de COM:Autopatrolled en espanol. :-( Pues, tenemos un systema nuevo donde personas con un perfil de usuario "patroller" puede marcar los ediciones de paginas como "patrolled". Los que no son "patrolled" tiene un exclamativo rojo. Tu "autopatroller" significa que tus ediciones no tienen los exclamativos rojos, porque estas un usuario bueno ;-). Espero que me entiendas... Digame si no entiendes. Es una cosa para cortar la lista de usuarios que "patrollers" necesiten ver (para luchar vandalismo). Killiondude (talk) 18:06, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
Gracias por tu respuesta y por confiar en mis ediciones. Saludos, --Arcibel (talk) 11:15, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks from Athaenara[edit]

Thank you very much for this change. – Athaenara 01:24, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

No problemo. See COM:Autopatrolled if you need more info about it. Killiondude (talk) 05:25, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Hi again, Killiondude. When you changed my user rights last year, rollback was familiar to me but autopatrol was not. On commons, I'm almost always checking just one thing: the completeness of transfer of en.wikipedia files per en:WP:CSD#F8. Since many of those files need license checks or categories as well (I don't often have time for that lately) I've begun to wonder if files I've edited are less likely to be checked by other Commons editors because my edits are marked autopatrolled. Should I be concerned about it? Athaenara (talk) 12:44, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
Never mind, ZooFari clarified it for me (diff). Athaenara (talk) 03:33, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Bit flip[edit]

Thanks for the Patroller status. I'm still debating with myself whether or not to run for adminship, as my area of interests would benefit greatly from being able to do renaming and such (space-related images suffer badly from generic filenames!), but I doubt I've done enough here to build trust for that bit. Anyway, thanks :) Huntster (t @ c) 03:20, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

You have nearly twice the amount of edits that I have. I haven't looked too closely at your contribs, but I'm sure if you're pretty active for several months and participate in community discussions (DRs, VPs, etc) then you could get the bit. I've seen you around noticeboards, so I don't think the community discussion part would be difficult. And you're welcome for the user right. I keep my eyes on my watchlist for regulars who need that. :-) Killiondude (talk) 04:05, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Mass Deletion of Files From the Baden Württemberg State Ministry[edit]

Hi, you have recently deleted many files that another user had uploaded from the web site of the Baden Württemberg State Ministry [1]. The reason was "No permission". This is a selection of deleted files I found in your deletion logs and that, according to the file name, probably come from this source. I'm not sure if the list is complete:

At least some of the pages, probably all of them, contained a link to the ministry's web site that allows you to find the permission. Some of the pages mirrored the original permission:

"Die Aufnahmen können für Publikationen verwendet werden (Quelle "Staatsministerium" bzw. "StM", soweit nichts anderes vermerkt ist)." Translation: "The pictures may be used for publications (source: "State ministry" respectively "StM", unless noted otherwise)."

If you don't speak German and don't understand the web site that provides the permission, you shouldn't have deleted the files in the first place. Please restore the pictures from this source and revert the bot actions that deleted the files from the articles they were used in. --Sitacuisses (talk) 07:59, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

If I may, this is in no way equivalent to a {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} license (how did the uploader choose this license based on the above permission?). Allowing publication does not mean derivative works can be created, or that the images can be sold; both of these are requirements for images to be uploaded on Commons. –Tryphon 11:12, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
I agree with what Tryphon said. See also Gratis versus Libre. Killiondude (talk) 21:50, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Deletions[edit]

Hi!

I have noticed that you have recently you recently delted files uploaded by Me! [2][3][4] [5] These images were from here


I have notified some admins about that as you can see OTRS is pending! Please undelete them!


regarding to this [6] I have made a tiny mistake and I Will correct it!Quahadi Añtó 16:34, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I've undeleted and tagged the correct ones as being in the OTRS system. I'd prefer an OTRS worker who speaks Croatian to take this over, rather than me using an online translator. Killiondude (talk) 21:46, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Foto borrada[edit]

Hola, mi nombre es Juan Carlos Chirinos, y me gustaría saber por qué me has borrado en Commons la foto "Juan_Carlos_Chirinos.JPG" que aparecía en mi entrada de la wikipedia en español si:

a) esta foto es mía y la tomé yo
b) la subí yo mismo
c) está en mi página web, en la que aclaro que es para uso público
d) cuando lamonté puse en todos lados que era copyleft universal.

te agradecría que deshicieras la acción y repusieras mi foto.

Gracias,

File Image deleted[edit]

I don't understand why the file "Prototype_of_MTM.JPG" has been deleted. I specified all requested info and the picture is mine. Please, put it back. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aikiboy (talk • contribs) {{{2}}} (UTC)

You may have created parts of the image, but the copyright doesn't belong to you. It looks like a promo photo with some description boxes added. Killiondude (talk) 18:31, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm the creator of that project and I created the photo from a brochure and I modified it to insert in the picture a microphone and a videocam. The real PDA was modified to put on more hardware and such photo, that gave just an idea how the PDA should had be, has been presented at European Community and it is in a public document. I am the owner of that image and I didn't put any copyright on it.
So tell me how can I insert the photo of my project if you delete it? It is missing to me something that I don't understand? Please, undelete it. Thanks --Aikiboy (talk) 19:12, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
I'll undelete after I write this message. In the meantime, please read COM:OTRS and Commons:Permission. You need to email our OTRS system (permissions-commons@wikimedia.org) and verify that you are the copyright owner. The easiest way to do that is to email from a domain that is related to the product (that is, [edit] not emailing from an account that is a throw-away like @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, etc). In the same email, you need to give the file a free license. The links I gave you before should have an example email in them, if you'd like to work from that. Killiondude (talk) 23:56, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll do that.
I accidentally forgot to put "not" above, I've edited it now. It's easier if you don't email from a throw-away account, in order to verify who you say you are. Killiondude (talk) 16:45, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

File re-uploaded[edit]

Just as a heads up, I have reuploaded "Johnston-Clock-Tower_Photographer-Amanda-Scott.jpg" under the new name File:Johnston-Clock-Tower.jpg. The image was part of a whole batch that did not cite a proper source. All of the images are "provided courtesy The University of Guelph". --Natural RX 16:10, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

I don't see anywhere on their website that explicitly says the image has a free license. See Gratis versus Libre. The image might be free as in freely accessibly or freely used, but we have no indication that there's a free license attached to it (that I can see). Feel free to point out if I'm wrong. Killiondude (talk) 16:16, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm contacting Mary Dickieson at the University of Guelph right now to verify "provided courtesy The University of Guelph" means free licence. If it is true, I guess what I do is get her to email permissions-commons-at-wikimedia.org? --Natural RX 20:22, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
Yep, you got it. Once they've emailed, let me know and I can search for it. If you haven't, you might want to check out COM:OTRS. We just need to verify that the copyright holder is giving the work a free license. Killiondude (talk) 21:31, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Robert Young author article[edit]

Hello, It looks like you are looking out for the best of others by keeping images off that do not have permission to be up. Well done. You recently took of Robert Young's picture off of his bio page because of the lack of permissions. Would you be willing to put it back up. It seems like that image was given full authority and permission to stay on wikepedia. If not, I know there is an image of him that has been given with full permission and is free for anyone to use. If there are any problems I will try to get it posted up ASAP. Please do not take it off again unless you notify the discussion page letting them know. It would have been very easy to restore the permissions rather than having to put it up again which, it looks like I will have to do, unless you are so kind as to do it. I will wait for a result by tomorrow. Respectfully Honest Research (talk) 18:21, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

I restored it. It is located at File:RobertOYoung.jpg. Please have the permission sent to OTRS otherwise it will be deleted again in a few weeks (though it's liable to be deleted anytime after a week). Killiondude (talk) 04:48, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Krešimir Bikić Picasa[edit]

Hi could you please label this template as checked

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Kre%C5%A1imir_Biki%C4%87_Picasa

I have obtained permission to uplod from picasa . you have been labelling each file separately. Please label the template because there are more files to be uploaded.--Quahadi Añtó 15:10, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

I labeled the individual files that were mentioned in the permission email. I don't remember much else other than I didn't want to get involved because I can't speak the language. Please contact Ex13 (talk · contribs) if you need more help, since it appears that he can help with this. Personally, I think an OTRS member should just place the OTRS tag on each individual file rather than using a template that you put on files. But I think Ex13 can help you more.

File:Amon Goeth with Rifle.jpg[edit]

Hi Killiondude, I just found out you finally deleted File:Amon Goeth with Rifle.jpg just over a week ago. It's a shame it couldn't be properly licensed, since it is Commons-worthy for its historical significance and its (inverse) cultural reference to Schindler's List. Could you do me the favor of copying the talk page of its nominated for deletion page (by eMail/by talk page)? I can't imagine there's no source or license information anywhere, and I'd love to see the few comments on its nomination page. Great thanks Icon wink.gif -- Gohnarch░░░░ 18:10, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey Gohnarch. I recently asked the stewards to take away my sysop bit from Commons as I needed a break (don't know how long yet) from spending so much time on wikis. However, I can tell you that there was no deletion page where this file was nominated. It was tagged using {{nsd}} or {{nld}} for longer than 7 days. If you think it was deleted in error, you could post a request on COM:UNDEL for it to be undeleted. Thanks for taking the time to ask me about it, though. :-) Killiondude (talk) 06:08, 11 May 2010 (UTC)


Hi Killiondude,
I've undeleted several files you had no-perm-deleted, after I was contacted by an OTRS-volunteer from :he[7]. --Túrelio (talk) 07:00, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Okay, that's fine if everything checks out. I appreciate that you wanted to let me know, but if you hadn't have told me it wouldn't be a big deal. Thanks though. :-) I hope you are doing well. Killiondude (talk) 07:03, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, as likely with many others, I'm quite uneasy, might even say suffering, with the current state of the Commons community. Healing will take time and there still seem to be people lashing out at others for "revenge". --Túrelio (talk) 07:08, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes. Common's isn't how it used to be... where I could get away from the enwiki drama. I also find it discomforting. I can only hope that it settles down and we can stop the "lashing out" from happening. Killiondude (talk) 07:29, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

How to deal with a possibly unfree image[edit]

Hi there, you helped me out at the helpdesk, so I thought I might you might be able to help me out with something else. I patrol pages on en.wikipedia, and I came across File:Ahsan-dar.jpg in the article about the subject of the image. It appears to be taken from here, and I'm not sure about the copyright status. At the very least, shouldn't the proof of copyright by the uploader have to be a bit more substantial than placing the appropriate template on the file page? My knowledge of how to deal with these things (both on the Commons and at en.wiki) is a little limited, so any help would be great. Thanks! -- Lear's Fool (talk | contribs) 11:58, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Both on enwiki and Commons you would probably tag it with a "no permission designated" tag. This gives the user 7 days to email OTRS or otherwise clear up the copyright info for the file. The tag is {{npd}} on both projects, and needs to be substituted (add a "subst:" before the "npd" part). See also Commons:Permission. I just tagged the file you asked about. Killiondude (talk) 16:23, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for that.-- Lear's Fool (talk | contribs) 16:25, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

I know you're good at copy-editing, so would you be able to do something here. I feel it needs it. --The Evil IP address (talk) 17:23, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

I went through that page and copyedited each of the messages. I've never been involved in the picture of the year contest, but I'm willing to help out more.

darshan.jpg[edit]

Hello Killiondude - you officiated at a deletion request for the above file in December. The request was closed in April - there was no case. I can find no further such request, no note on my talk page - but the image has been deleted. The page is gone so I cannot tell anymore when or how or why or by whom. Please can you help me find out? Redheylin (talk) 04:19, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Wait - the image was deleted by User Kameraad Pjotr on April 19th. The user entered "closed per above" below a vote in favour of "keep". However, halfway up the page, above your "arbitary section break" he has inserted the note "deleted, failed to answer questions and provide evidence". (The question was from complainant Cirt, demanding the real-world identity of the photographer: I did not answer since complainant had made a large number of allegations of bad faith, since the question breached privacy and did not relate to the complaint - that the picture was scanned from promotional materials. However I made several offers of evidence, which were not taken up.) Final vote showed "keep" yet deletion undertaken summarily without notice or prior involvement per decision inserted invisibly half-way up page. Case closed. I think this is very bad indeed - the original complaint was simply mischievous. Redheylin (talk) 05:22, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Deletion requests on Commons aren't closed according to consensus, they are closed according to the best given explanation of copyright situation. I haven't had time to re-familiarize myself with the specifics, but I believe that since you failed to explicitly say that you yourself were the complete creator of the original photograph, you didn't have the permission to give it a free license. Killiondude (talk) 18:03, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
I'd appreciate it if you'd be able to point out to me the rule you are quoting, and where the rule was quoted in the discussion. At the moment I have the impression that a sysop with a strong dislike of the subject matter that I was editing called in favours from fellow admins to back a chain of complaints against me based on allegations of bad faith, none of which was supported or upheld.
Several admins said my statements sufficed. I had the impression you were overseeing the matter. You drew a line under the original false allegations and restarted discussion - no other person upheld deletion. Then three months later someone else, never involved, without notice, without discussion, unilaterally deletes on the basis of another argument that has never been advanced, without quoting any rule, with effectively no deletion discussion on this new rule - and hides his "judgment" halfway up the page, above the line you drew. I'd say that, if the rule you mention exists, then certainly there has been no deletion procedure on that basis. It's an arbitrary move. You say "the best given explanation" - but who appointed this single admin to decide the matter?
Please note that I have offered to supply any necessary assertion and evidence in regard to this image to Commons - but I'll not release realworld personal details to an editor engaged in an unjustified, extended, bitter, personal attack. For one thing, I think this would have led straight into a COI complaint. Redheylin (talk) 21:35, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
I see now that later on in the discussion you did in fact claim to be the copyright holder to this photo. Commons has been a bit shaky lately, and if you didn't notice from the thread(s) above, I've taken a break from being an admin (as of right now I do not have the technical ability to undelete the file). I would recommend you bring your concerns to COM:UNDEL for people to review it. I think it's likely it will be undeleted if you do that. Killiondude (talk) 22:01, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Thankyou K - I am sorry to have troubled you and I appreciate your taking the time. Redheylin (talk) 01:17, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Ottava Rima[edit]

Hi. You have participated in the long debate about Ottava Rima. You may want to vote in the final poll about his block. I might have summarized your expressed opinion already, if so please check that it is correct! Only one vote (Symbol support vote.svg Support, Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose or Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral), with a block length in case of support. Nothing more in this subsection! Thanks. --Eusebius (talk) 11:56, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Template:Image[edit]

I'm trying to get Mizsabot to work on Commons better and transwikied Template:Archives however it uses Image. Can you either restore Image or help modify this template so it is no longer need please? Thx. - Stillwaterising (talk) 15:33, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

I think a workaround has been achieved, archives works it seems. - Stillwaterising (talk) 16:29, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
Okay, cool. Thanks for working on that. Commons lacks a lot of templates, I've even pulled several from enwiki during my time here. Killiondude (talk) 17:10, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

ticket 2006082110002647[edit]

Hello, regarding this ticked. It appears ticket covers around 20 images on Commons[8] and they should be deleted same as Commons:Deletion requests/File:Porcupine Tree band 2005.jpg. Maybe it is worth to send an email to copyright holder asking for more clear answer then "ok", or is it useless? --Justass (talk) 19:38, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

You could try emailing them, but I'm not sure if you'd get a response (if you feel it is worth it by all means go ahead). It's not a big deal if these images are deleted in the meantime; it's not difficult to restore images after they are deleted. But as it stands I don't think the copyright holder really understood the licensing they were giving the images (when presented with the option of which license to give them, they just said "ok" essentially--not choosing themselves which license iirc) and it's not really fair for Commons to host them. Killiondude (talk) 19:42, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
One and main problem is that I am not OTRS members and I have no idea where to send email :) --Justass (talk) 20:45, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh! I am very sorry. I thought you were an OTRS volunteer. I should have double checked. My mistake. If I have some time later, I will try to email the person in question. Killiondude (talk) 21:10, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

File:Jennette McCurdy KCA.JPG[edit]

The EXIF says something different (Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images - staff photographer), and thats correct [9] - faked ticket? --Martin H. (talk) 18:26, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't sure when I was handling this ticket... I previewed the exif data on my computer and the author field said the person's name who I was in contact with. I sent her a few emails to confirm that she holds the copyright and in both cases she confirmed that she personally took the photo. The author field doesn't appear to be showing on the Commons file page, but can be found here. I'll email her again and ask what her relationship with Getty Images is. Killiondude (talk) 19:38, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
This is either an image sent by someone related to the subject to provide an better image - but gave you false author information and didnt comply with en:Wikipedia:Contact us/Photo submission #1 ([...]the copyright was transferred to you via written statement or operation of law (e.g., inheritance). Please specify which scenario applies) or it is an user who tries to trick OTRS. The "Smith" appears to be wrong, I have no reason to believe the photographer info at GettyImages is wrong. In any case they should provide evidence that they own the exclusive rights. I have no doubt, that GI is the true copyright holder, and they never grant exclusive licenses, means Smith is never allowed to grant others the right to reuse the image under any license. I strongly suspect the second case here: Someone tricks us here. --Martin H. (talk) 20:42, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
It's the subject's publicist. I sent the email asking for them to explain their relationship with Getty Images, and they responded asking for me to change the picture in the infobox until a newer photo is put up. I think by their avoidance of the question they may have implicitly showed they are not the copyright holder. Feel free to delete this image until this is resolved, thanks for your involvement, Martin. Killiondude (talk) 20:47, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
I will do so and close the deletion request. I pardon my distrustfulness against the email sender but I wonder why they did this so vague and - sorry - unprofessional, while the photo submission instructions give so simple and clear instructions. Deleted untill the issue is clearified in OTRS communication. --Martin H. (talk) 21:25, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. Regarding this summary, I resigned my admin tools over a month ago both on Commons and enwp. Killiondude (talk) 21:59, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Flickr review notice[edit]

Cancer Research Center photos from December 2009[edit]

Hi, three photos which I uploaded to Wikimedia Commons have been deleted. It looks like they were marked for deletion back in December 2009. I work in the communications office at the University at Albany, and we own the copyright on the images. From everything I gather, I selected the appropriate copyright/copyleft option when uploading the files. I want to ensure that this time when I re-upload the files they don't get marked for deletion. Please advise on how we can avoid the images being marked for deletion in the future. This is, as you can imagine, quite irritating to have to go back and do something I took care of more than 9 months ago.

Meek Mansion[edit]

Thanks for your note about my photo of Meek Mansion. I'm glad you like the photo and that you took the time to write the article on Wikipedia. I've got several other photos of the Meek estate, including the carriage house (which is also part of the NRHP listing). Now that you've created the article, perhaps I'll upload the other photos I took.

It's been one of my hobbies over the past couple of years to visit places on the National Register in the Bay Area. I've posted photos on my user page of most of the NRHP sites in San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin and Sonoma Counties. I started on Napa County over the Labor Day weekend, but haven't uploaded anything from that photo trip as yet. After Napa, I'll probably tackle San Mateo County next.

I see from your user page that you're in Sacramento. Have you taken photos of any of the NRHP sites out that way? --Sanfranman59 (talk) 09:03, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm by no means any more than a very amateur photographer myself. I'm very actively involved in updating the NRHP lists on WP and am also in the habit of adding photos to NRHP-related articles when I find them. But if you find articles for which one of my photos is appropriate, by all means, please add it.
I'll upload the other photos I have of Meek Mansion, the carriage house and the grounds and will let you know when they're out there. Thanks again for your interest. --Sanfranman59 (talk) 21:35, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
Hi KD ... at long last, I've uploaded the additional photos I have of the Meek Mansion and environs. I created a new category (Category:Meek Mansion and Carriage House). Feel free to use the photos as you wish. Sorry it took so long to post them. A few days after we last corresponded, my less than year old computer died. I didn't get it back from the repair shop until last weekend and it took me until yesterday to recover all my files and get the system back to the way I like it. Thanks to Carbonite and my nightly Windows backups, I don't think I lost anything. But what a pain! --Sanfranman59 (talk) 04:02, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
If you're not familiar with it, I recommend checking out Carbonite for backups (I understand that Mozy works basically the same way). I set it up so that it backs up anything I add or change in various folders every night (it allows you to pick and choose which folders you want to include in the backup). It really saved my butt this time. If I had kept doing things the way I always used to, I would have probably lost hundreds, if not thousands of photos and music files. I also use the Windows 7 backup utility to back my system up to an external hard drive every night. Better safe than sorry! If you decide to use Carbonite, let me know so I can refer you. I think they'll give me 3 free months for making a referral. --Sanfranman59 (talk) 23:57, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Nice to see you back again :) Kanonkas // talk // e-mail // 12:20, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Deleting the odd file I find or looking at already deleted material is useful. I'm not sure how much time I'll be putting into Commons, so I can't commit to much. Killiondude (talk) 20:56, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Monobook.js[edit]

Hey Killiondude, I've rolled back your change to Monobook.js. As indicated in the source comment we had extensive discussion about this feature. Please open up a new discussion if you disagree with the consensus from back then. Simple removal is not acceptable. --Dschwen (talk) 19:32, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Extended discussion that was enacted a year and a half later? Also, in what world is it acceptable to make monobook users who type in real page names in the search bar have to go through an intermediary page to reach their destination? Killiondude (talk) 19:37, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Real page names are a useful concept on Wikipedia maybe, but on commons only a fraction of content has guessable page name. You may be the exceptional user who knows what to type in, but for the majority of users the expected default is search. In any case, the opinions were pretty unanimous for changing the default. Please do not simply ignore them. --Dschwen (talk) 20:06, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
We can all say we support something without knowing actual results. The fact that this was added a year and a half after said discussion is also a bit suspicious. Killiondude (talk) 20:08, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, whatever. You seem to be pretty aggravated about this. so why don't you just GoButton=true; in your monobook js and chill. Then we'll see where the discussion on the VP leads us. --Dschwen (talk) 20:22, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
I think you're reading more into my emotions than necessary. I just think it's a poor configuration. Killiondude (talk) 20:23, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I probably misinterpreted the I'm both perplexed and a little angered at this situation. ;-). Anyhow, as I wrote on the VP the change is probably obsolete now in any case as most users have vector as a template. --Dschwen (talk) 20:28, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
You'll note the qualifier before angered! :-) In any case, responding with "yeah, whatever" and directing one to "chill" is not considered good communication skills with someone who is potentially angry. I think there's a solution to this that could benefit both groups (power users and newbies); the namespace prefix thingy I've been trying to get input on. Killiondude (talk) 20:34, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Killion![edit]

Hello, dude!! :) I didnt know that you are admin on commons also? Cool! Can you help me with one thing? I post it here, so i just need you help now. The owner of those pictures, some Jean, send a letter to OTRS with your default permission (slightly changed) and i would ask from you to find it.

Hello back![edit]

Not sure if Im sending this back the right way... No, I don't work for Titan, but am studying them for a course. I tried to upload images last week, but was asked to get permissions from wiki, so I contacted Titan and this is what they gave me as their official Flickr account.... Im a bit reluctant to go back and bother them again about putting a URL on their website just to use some images. I had also thought film posters could be used under 'Fair Use' -- but perhaps not? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Clarisworks86 (talk • contribs)

Do you have your email conversation with them? If so, if you can forward that to permissions-en@wikimedia.org and that'll solve the issue completely! That's our OTRS system where we keep non-public records of permissions, among other things. I'm an OTRS member and can deal with it once you let me know you've sent it. The other route would be fair use, yes. But Commons doesn't accept fair use since this project's goal is freely licensed media only. One would have to reupload those images on the English Wikipedia with the proper fair use stuff. But since Titan seems to want to freely license those posters, I think we should go with the OTRS route. :-) Killiondude (talk) 16:44, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Premature closing of DR[edit]

Is there a reason why you this DR was closed before the usual delay of 7 days?

Given that it's a scope discussion and the uploader left some incivilities on my talk page after I opened it, it seems odd that I couldn't even comment before it was closed. --  Docu  at 14:07, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

It was a silly nomination and appeared (at best) to be in bad faith. It doesn't seem odd that you couldn't comment before it was closed. It looks like you chose not to based on your talk page history (yes, I did read that thread on your talk page before I closed it). Killiondude (talk) 16:40, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Adler files[edit]

Hi Jason, So VERY glad to have received your e-mail!!!! As you can guess, I have found the different licensing procedures and acronyms a bit confusing. So yes, I need your help!! Exactly what does "Share alike" in this context mean? I want to be sure that any/all re-users of my illustrations (and BTW, the lioness and her cubs is a pencil drawing, not a photo. Glad it looks so real!) give me, the only copyright holder* to these works, as well as the illustrator, credit each and every time. If "share alike" makes the re-use even more protective of my work, then that's the route I'd like to go. If it is less protective of my work, then I want to go however my work and I will have the greatest protection -- and therein I will need your guidance, as well. I have to say that I am fabulously impressed by the assistance I have received from Wikimedia as well as Wikipedia. I look forward to hearing from you in this regard.

  • I have been the copyright holder from day one for my book illustrations.

When the the books went out of print in the 1980s, both of my publishers, Franklin Watts and the John Day Company, had all rights revert to me per contract agreement.

Something about Windows Live Mail that needs some tweeking, as duplicates arrive all the time. Usually I file one in storage before deleting the second one. This time I did not. Regards, Peggy Adler User:bxzooo Bxzooo (talk) 21:46, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello! I've just resent it. I'll put your article on my Watchlist and look at it at some point today or tomorrow to check things out. Killiondude (talk) 21:48, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanx!! BTW, I sent you some pix of my 1725 house to you by e-mail. Was that OK? Also about my California family members. Regards, Peggy Adler/User:bxzooo Bxzooo (talk) 23:31, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

How come the lioness file at Wikimedia is licensed one way and at my article, another? At Wikimedia, it is now licensed exactly the same as my other art work -- I assume thanks to your fine handiwork. At my article it is not. Just wondered. Also - the other day you offered to remove the lead-in tag at the top of my article. I'm fine with that if you are still willing to do so. Regards, Peggy (Adler) User:bxzooo Bxzooo (talk) 13:21, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Killiondude, I need your HELP!!!! While Harry and I were watching the LL world Series I went to show him my article, sans tags, and found a very distrubing new one calling for the deletion of my article. WHY??? And can you do anything to prevent this? The BIG box at the top of the page now reads:

"This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy.
Please share your thoughts on the matter at this article's entry on the Articles for deletion page.
Feel free to edit the article, but the article must not be blanked, and this notice must not be removed, until the discussion is closed. For more information, particularly on merging or moving the article during the discussion, read the Guide to deletion."

I will not be back on the Internet before tomorrow morning, as Harry and I live together in two houses three miles apart, half a week in each. And his computer is a very slow XP. Thus, I raced back to my little cape to send you these SOS messages. If you need to reach me before then, check out my latest e-mail re:same, which has additional contact info. Regards, Peggy Adler/User:bxzooo Bxzooo (talk) 00:54, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

move to commons[edit]

Help, I uploaded (en:File:Som‌Nath‌Sharma.jpg) this image under "use rationale". This is image of person who died 60 years ago. Is it allowed to move this image to commons. A user (en:User_talk:Raghith#Please_assist) asked me for this. Thank you. -- Raghith 09:43, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

I found (en:Copyright_law_of_India#Duration_of_copyright) this. -- Raghith
Hi. The 60 years thing appears to be from when it was published, not just when the subject or author died. I'm not entirely sure that's free to distribute... I know we have a noticeboard on Commons where you might get a better answer at Commons:Village pump/Copyright. Killiondude (talk) 18:56, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Document Camera page - image deletions[edit]

Hallo! I notice that you recently deleted 8 images from the 'Document Camera' page. As copyright owner of these images (WolfVision - yes they are our images) we happy to allow them to be published on Wikipedia. I believe that they are useful enhancement to this page. Please can you undelete them. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Murray 1010 (talk • contribs)

Hello! Yes, I recall deleting images that were copied from WolfVision's website. You'll need to go through our OTRS system to verify that WolfVision does give consent to use those images with free licenses (i.e. reusers can use those images commercial settings, altering the images, etc.). This email will need to come from someone with an official WolfVision email address. We recommend the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 3.0 license. Which account uploaded these files? I see no deleted files listed under your account and in the quick glance I took at the files I've deleted I didn't see the ones you want. The OTRS volunteer who processes your email will likely need a link to the deleted pages so they can undelete them. Killiondude (talk) 23:47, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

De-adminship warning[edit]

This talk page in other languages:

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 한국어 | മലയാളം | português | português do Brasil | +/−

Dear Killiondude. I am writing to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you Trijnsteltalk 23:23, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

diff=95577045&oldid=93852307 -- Removing edit request that was never implemented[edit]

Is there any reason why you removed the edit request there? Do you think it is invalid or problematic? -- Rillke(q?) 09:53, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Nope. But if it is still an issue it shouldn't be a live edit request in an archive. The author (or you) are free to make another edit request on the current talk page or copy/paste the old one. Killiondude (talk) 18:55, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
I am the author and now did the change to the template. Let's see what happens. -- Rillke(q?) 13:03, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Mr. Savides didn't respond directly to my email and I see no tickets coming up any search for him emailing OTRS. If he ever does get around to this and releases it, the file can be undeleted quickly. Killiondude (talk) 17:38, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Killiondude. Are you sure this will archive COM:ON instead of this? Shouldn't it be on the page you wish to archive? Regards, Trijnsteltalk 07:14, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

No, I hadn't considered that. I wonder if the template is hidden if the bot will still archive it... Hmmm... Killiondude (talk) 00:30, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
