Dear officious jerk[edit]

Here where I am physically staying there has been an invasion of ants. I agree with many resource conservation suggestions, especially when they mean less housework which is even more agreeable to me. That being said, it seems I have managed the infestation with a pile of scraps outside of the living area. They do not seem to care now for the little bits of things that might be in the living area and are interesting to watch where they now dine around the clock (some clocks are still actually round).

I mention this now because at English wikipedia, they did not like it when I spoke for myself. Then, they did not like it when I borrowed the words of en:Nathan Explosion to say what was on my mind. I have the option to log into either of the two other computers I have shell access to and work from there, just because. I rather like keeping it "real" though or among human beings and not about access privileges and sneaking and hacking, etc.

Is there something like what I did with the ants where I physically am that I could do to the eh, biting ants at English wikipedia? -- carol (talk) 11:02, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Also, I can still tell the difference between ass kissing and brain picking, this is not yet ass kissing.... -- carol (talk) 11:09, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, I usually deal with the ants on my patio using boiling water. Not sure I can recommend that, though. LX (talk, contribs) 11:14, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
"Feasties" don't like salad dressing....
I don't want to kill them. Just put something they can feast on somewhere else; out of sight is fine in this case. The real ants here are interesting and I have enjoyed watching them. No boiling water here -- I am not going to name each one of them but, I am becoming fond enough of them that they are being called collectively the feasties which almost rhymes with species.... -- carol (talk) 11:19, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

user: Executioner making racist comments, vandalizing, and using sockpuppet IP[edit]

user: Executioner often tries to delete or change images I upload. A few days ago he did it with his IP so that he doesn't get into trouble for it. I know that this is his his IP range because it is this IP that he uses when placing the images he uploads on Commons onto articles in EnWiki. Here is the diff where he tries to delete an image that I uploaded. Executioner often puts "cleanup" in his edit summaries, here he puts cleanup in the edit summary but does not do a cleanup at all. Instead he puts a deletion tag on the image. He has tried deleting images I upload many times. Also, just a few days ago he also made racist remarks about Persian-Iranian women basically calling them ugly on his talk page, see here. He clearly shows he is racist toward Iranian women so it makes sense that he would try to delete their images from Commons. Due to this evidence I am sure this IP is him vandalizing the image of the Iranian woman I uploaded. Editing with an IP is ok, but using your IP to get away with racism inspired vandalism is sockpuppetry. Le Behnam (talk) 19:59, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Serious questions about administrative goals here and elsewhere[edit]

In the last few days, uncommunicative and disruptive edits have been encouraged here and communication attempts has been discouraged.

Administrators revert some of my edits and then ask the reason for them.

I was having similar problems on English wikipedia. English wikipedia has a really weird situation going right now, weird, contradictory and kind of interesting so I am taking your time and talk space to outline it:

  1. I was blocked for idiotic reasons (I suspect the real reason was that I clicked on a wikisource upload and reaction to that got out of hand).
  2. While my user account is blocked, my login expires and I was pasting some information that was already wikified for a category here (All the names of Yugoslavia!!!), I could easily read that the block on the IP was to expire on a certain date.
  3. that date arrived, the IP was no longer blocked but the user name was. I like my edit history there. I made one edit with my IP and got a sock en:User:Spears, Carol and went to a user name who had been really good about keeping administrative spam off from my user page there to ask about (or mention) the inconsistency in the ban between IP and User name. No other edits.
  4. I am now banned for "making socks".
  5. The same inconsistency exists where the ban on the IP is set to expire but the ban on my User name is set indefinitely.

My problem with all of this is that it is a point where the definitions do not meet and those points are oftn where extremely abusive people work. I suspect that Ryan Postelwhatever is a new/recent administrator here (using the windows gamebox) but have nothing but a feeling about that.

I do not like the new these last few weeks atmosphere where non-communication is encouraged. I am used to administrators looking into things and making changes then, not making changes and then looking into things.

And not only am I sorry to bother you with this, but I am also sorry that it exists to bother you with. -- carol (talk) 01:03, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

(It does often have the look and feel here that all of the administrators and interested contributors that are looking for problems I create are experiencing unusually strong PMS here. Sometimes I have regular PMS, but never -- I think -- to the extent that the administrators are experiencing it now. Over-reactions, over-emotion, lack of logic and the over-quick deletion of things. It is actually textbook and an often mentioned reason that a female could not be a good leader, yet all of the current administrative actions against me and my work have all of those qualities to it.)
Forgive me for these observations of the "staff" both here and at English wikipedia. I would love to be seeing something else. -- carol (talk) 01:25, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Alexandrina (talk · contribs)[edit]

@LX, would you mind if I replace your english Welcome-template on the userpage of User:Alexandrina (blocked by you for 1 month) by the portuguese language version? Patricia told me recently that portuguese-speakers often have little knowledge of english. --Túrelio (talk) 07:06, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

I generally leave templates in English because don't want to give the impression of being able to speak languages that I don't speak. I figure anybody should be able to recognise the name of their own language in their own language, but if you want to give that a try, I don't mind. LX (talk, contribs) 07:44, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Contributions of Webber[edit]

Hi LX,

I wonder if you would have a look at the contributions of Webber. I am not convinced that they are free images at all. Thanks 84.13.130.1 10:07, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Any particular reason for that suspicion? They appear to have a consistent style and quality level as far as I an see. LX (talk, contribs) 16:02, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Renaboss (talk contribs Luxo's SUL deleted contribs logs block user block log checkuser)[edit]

Good day LX, I was wondering if you could give me more information on how you found the sockpuppet LeoLaci which belongs to Renaboss. For all we know the user might have more so if you find another one, or if I find another maybe a Checkuser report should do. Best regards, --Kanonkas(talk) 14:06, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Spotted the uploads in Special:NewImages, knew I'd seen them before, checked their usage, looked at the history of one of the instances where it was used, found that pt:User:Renaboss added the image uploaded by User:LeoLaci and that they had previously added Image:Lynette-Scavo.jpg (uploaded by User:Renaboss) to the same article. With User:Renaboss being blocked, User:LeoLaci uploading the same images and pt:User:Renaboss adding references to the images, it was pretty trivial to connect the dots.

Image:Golf Pgatiger.jpg[edit]

Hi, i nominated this image for deletion after you deleted it. Im very sorry for recreating the page Image:Golf Pgatiger.jpg , can you remove it once more? thanks and greetings, --Martin H. (talk) 13:49, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Done, no worries. If you see images following the same pattern as this, please report them at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems#New Salma sockpuppet, since this is a persistent vandal with so far over half a dozen sockpuppet accounts. LX (talk, contribs) 13:52, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Hi, i once nominated (and speedy nominated) a bunch of golf pictures, i still have them on my watchlist, so i found Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Golf Pgatiger.jpg and finaly this thread on your discussion page. Can you please check the contribs of Fatooosh (talk · contributions · Move log · Number of edits · logs · block log), the Golf images he recently uploaded are looking familiar to me, all of his uploads are photographed with a mobile phone cam from the monitor (i strongly believe). There are some images of airplanes to, the first i mentioned was Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Airplane114.jpg, i dont nominated other contributions of this user so far because it is obvious and waste of time. --Martin H. (talk) 12:37, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
This could be the same user, and the last rangeblock has expired, but it's not obvious enough that I'm willing to go for a block right away. You could file a request at COM:CU or talk to Herbythyme (talk · contribs), who's familiar with the case. I'm a bit too busy at the moment; otherwise I'd do it myself. LX (talk, contribs) 14:36, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
done by involving User Herbythyme. Thanks, --Martin H. (talk) 17:04, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Image:ManuelVillalobos.jpg[edit]

Hi, you deletet this image already. Is there any template to tag a imagepage with "permission needed"? The uploader claims to be the author of the image (Photosport (talk · contribs), author is ANDRES PINA/PHOTOSPORT according to the images metadata), unlikely he is - so i want to call on him to sent a written permission. Could you give me an instruction? Please excuse my bad english, --Martin H. (talk) 19:14, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

I've deleted that again, since it was recreated outside of process. For what you're asking for, see Image:Luis Flores Abarca.jpg, which I've tagged with {{subst:npd}} and notified them of this per the instructions on that template. If you enable User Messages gadget in your preferences, you'll get a bunch of new links in your toolbox on the left-hand side which makes the whole process a lot easier. LX (talk, contribs) 19:33, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much, ill try out the User Messages gadget, it seems to be very useful. The npd tag is what i'm looking for, there are three possible reactions of the uploader in this example: 1. permission per email and everything is ok, 2. do nothing and image will be deleted, 3. make the copyvio obviosly (like this time) and the image will be deleted. thx, --Martin H.

Question[edit]

http://artlibre.org/licence/lal/en/

Hello i was wondering if i could upload a manga scan using this licene, ive been banned already by you for the same image but i think this license should work --Elmerion (talk) 19:04, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

In a word: no. Firstly, do not recreate images that have previously been deleted. If you believe the deletion was incorrect, you may request undeletion at Commons:Undeletion requests. Secondly, only the legitimate copyright holder can issue a valid license to their work. Making a copy of someone else's work by scanning it does not make you the copyright holder. Please read Commons:Licensing. LX (talk, contribs) 19:15, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

feasties are back![edit]

Sorry to bother you, I have no idea where the correct place for this is. The feasties have returned. They do not seem to enjoy the cold weather but that isn't the problem because the weather has not changed and they have returned.

Regardless to what makes them appear and disappear, this morning I moved something and they started running around. There was a spider which was about their size hanging out near their hole. I got to see the spider encounter one of these ants face to face. They both got scared and ran away. Honest! It was quite funny.

I am really sorry that there was no way to capture that via a movie -- even if I had a lens and a camera that could make a good picture of it; it was just one of those things.

Anyways, thanks for the break -- carol (talk) 00:43, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

PD-Art[edit]

Hello LX. Regarding the PD-Art policy it appears you are the main person blocking consensus on changing the policy. If that is your decision, I would like to ask you how you intend to fix the current problems with PD-Art without changing the policy. Currently, there are 2 major problems:

  1. All PD-Art images get moved from the English Wikipedia to Commons and then speedy deleted from en, even if they are not allowed on Commons. On en.wiki we have tried everything to get people to quit doing this. It is already prohibited by the speedy deletion policy. We have tried protecting such images and adding warning templates to them saying not to move them to Commons. Yet the fact remains that admins on the en.wiki do not understand the issue and they uniformly assume that the PD-Art policy on en.wiki is the same as on Commons. If you don't believe me, look at this example. This is an image that is not allowed on Commons, yet it has been moved to Commons and deleted 3 times! This, despite the fact that the image was fully protected on en.wiki and included a prominent warning that it should not be moved to Commons. Anything marked PD-Art on en.wiki gets copied to Commons and deleted without a second thought.
  2. The PD-Art policy on Commons is not enforced, indeed it seems to be unenforcable. We have literally thousands of images on Commons currently in violation of policy. If you try to delete these images (as I did) it stirs up a firestorm of objections, and all you end up with is a mile long debate and more images left in limbo. If you could just move these images to en.wiki, it would be OK, but since they hardly ever actually get deleted from Commons, people on en.wiki keep moving them here, and we have thousands of images that are left in danger of being deleted. Having thousands of prominent historical images that are used across dozens of wikipedia projects but are always in danger of being deleted is not a good situation.

If you have any compelling suggestions for addressing these problems, please let me know. Kaldari (talk) 16:14, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

I may have been one of the more vocal participants in objecting to encouraging copyright violations (and that is what the proposal is; there's really no way around that), but as far as I can see, I'm far from the only one "blocking consensus" as you put it.
With regards to the first issue, we have always have, and probably will always have, a problem with people not understanding our policies or international issues in copyright law. We also have problems with users not understanding that fair use cannot apply on Commons. That doesn't mean that our stance on that matter is incorrect either. It's simply an issue that we will have to inform people about on an on-going basis.
With regards to the second issue, it is enforced, but like everything else, there are backlogs, and we don't catch everything right away, but there have definitely been many instances of content deleted on this basis, usually as a result of expired {{nsd}} notices from what I've seen. Yes, there are objections from people who don't understand our policies or the legal matters involved, just like COM:UNDEL and the user talk pages of active admins rack up plenty of invalid complaints after blatant copyvios are deleted. Again, that doesn't mean that our stance is incorrect. LX (talk, contribs) 19:33, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

I have a lot of sympathy with your view, and as you know I argued the UK case at some length, but who are we to stand in the way of the WMF Board's "position"?  :) --MichaelMaggs (talk) 20:05, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
In that case, why did we even bother with a discussion or with that whole voting circus? Other than that, refer to my comments here and here. LX (talk, contribs) 20:19, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
I would like to note that it's not a Board Position, it's a statement on philosophy of the WMF in general, if that date is correct, it's while Erik is Deputy Director, not a Board Member, and has no (and should have no) undue influence on Commons policies whatsoever (speaking as a WMF Staff Member).

Over here, you deleted a bunch of screenshots from the Lost Via Domus video game, despite {{Attribution-Ubisoft}}, which states that "Ubisoft allows the users to publish screenshots of all their games under a free license. … Ubisoft, the copyright holder of this file, allows anyone to use it for any purpose, provided that they are properly attributed. Redistribution, derivative work, commercial use, and all other use is permitted." Why? –thedemonhog talkedits 20:54, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
