Can I use this image of the Libyan PM?[edit]

Hi Magog,

I found this image of the Libyan PM on the Libyan gov's official facebook page:

Libyan Government Facebook Image of Libyan PM Can I use it, and if so, under what license. Thanks, Scottperry (talk) 03:13, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

@Scottperry: Only if you get email permission from them. The Libyan government's works do not fall into the public domain until 30 years after creation. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:16, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Magog for your quick reply. While email permission sounds possible, it doesn't sound easy. Any suggestions about a good way to more easily get a pic of the guy that would comply with Wikipedia copyright requirements? If not, I guess I'll try my hand with the email route. Sincerely, Scottperry (talk) 03:45, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

@Scottperry: This one looks free: [1]. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 05:16, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for that, but the current PM is named al-Thani, and is a skinny dark fellow with either horrible teeth, or a scowl! I'd scowl too if I had his teeth!!Scottperry (talk) 06:59, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

OgreBot and Summer of Monuments[edit]

Hello. I notice your bot is sorting some uploads from Wikipedia Summer of Monuments (WSM) as not having a recognized copyright template. This is likely because they are using {{WSM no known restrictions}}, a sort of niche template used on mass uploads coordinated by WSM's project manager. He is screening candidates to make sure archival uploads are of acceptable copyright status, and the three photos uploaded from UNC are unambiguously in the public domain I am told, but if you have any questions feel free to ask him. Just keeping you updated. Harej (talk) 03:25, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the notice. I am updating the templates and categories on a daily basis to avoid this. Feel free to remove the images from the category if they're bothering you. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:27, 12 July 2014 (UTC)


Whay did you delete File:DeadGazagirlcloseday14.JPG and where is the debate ??--Ezzex (talk) 21:39, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

As it states literally right in the block log, the debate is here: Commons:Deletion requests/File:DeadGazagirlcloseday14.JPG. And as it states right on that page, the reason I deleted the file is because the uploader took it from Al-Jazeera. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:41, 12 July 2014 (UTC)


Hello, I am an blocked user that was suspected to be a sockpuppet of Geórafo23. I have been talking with the user Hedwig in Washington and he recommended me to ping you to check if i am that sockpuppet of that user. I still blocked until now, so i need your help. Regards. The Limean--00:53, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

User:MoiraMoira made the initial block; would she have something to add? I don't see anything immediately wrong, but she may know something I don't. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 07:46, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Image removal[edit]

In this edit you added a no permission tag, despite the existence of an OTRS ticket tag.

Am I missing something, or was this just a mistake?--Sphilbrick (talk) 19:13, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

@Sphilbrick: I was probably running off a cached version of the English Wikipedia NowCommons helper, and failed to notice the new tag. Or I just missed it. My bad. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:40, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
I noticed a shortish lag between the two, which fits. Thanks for restoring, I will restore to the article and notify the uploader. --Sphilbrick (talk) 13:54, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
