The National Archives UK[edit]

Hi, thanks for posting on my talk page about the two images from the The National Archives UK. The images can be found on Flickr at the addresses mentioned but in flickr the coypright states "no known copy right restrictions". I'm new to uploading images to wikicommons and very new to unloading Flickr images. Is it okay to use these images? I thought that since they are from the national archives it seemed very likely that they would be okay to use but please correct me if I'm wrong. If not, just let me know how I can tag the "UK national Archives" photos in the future to avoid confusion. Thanks again!Monopoly31121993 (talk) 17:32, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

@Monopoly31121993: I fixed the pages. Note the template I added showing no copyright restrictions, as well as the {{Flickrreview}} template so that the bot can stamp this image as currently available under this license (it may not be available at a future date).

Clean up of new upload[edit]

Hi! Your bot here removed the transferring template from the description page. Why did it so? --Tacsipacsi (talk) 17:11, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

@Tacsipacsi: this was discussed at the bot's request for approval. To quote Leyo: "IMO the information template should only contain information that is relevant for a reader or reusers. The fact that a file was first uploaded to Wikipedia and then transferred to Commons by User:XY is not relevant in this sense. Hence, it is sufficient that this information is contained in the original upload log and in the text next to the thumb." Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:01, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
I hadn't known about it. Then can you remove the asterisk? --Tacsipacsi (talk) 16:47, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: Good idea. I will add it to my bucket list. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:40, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

CU attention needed[edit]

Hi Magog

I wanted to upload all the versions of this file and the bot said "succes" but it seems that only some of the versions were uploaded. Is there a max of xx versions you can upload with the bot? Or is there just some delay?

--MGA73 (talk) 16:18, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Oh it was only downloading that was succesful. It did not say that uploading was. Well I'd better wait before I try to upload the latest versions. Perhaps the bot will upload some more. :-) --MGA73 (talk) 16:30, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
I transferred the rest later so problem is solved :-) --MGA73 (talk) 17:48, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

About image I uploaded[edit]

Hey no problem. I was just wondering that is actually the mascot of our high school and we use it all the time all over facebook for events and our school district doesn't seem to mind is that grounds enough for it to be be used on Wikimedia? --Sanjev Rajaram (talk) 02:45, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
