Hi Prosfilaes, Hope you don't mind my asking, you seem knowledgeable on getting a photo up on Wiki. I have taken one with permission of the painter, it is a self portrait of an artist.. he want's me to put it up, but it needs a certain permission or license it seems, and I can't figure out how to do this. Does he/I need to send permission somewhere? Or ? Hope this makes sense, I'm a newbie, Thanks! RudiBassSelfPortrait70s.jpg is the name I thought I uploaded.. davenru aka Dave

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Zarqawi dead us govt photo.jpg [edit]

If your vote is based on precedent, you should know that the deletion of the image of US Soldiers was actually undone, then it was redeleted (despite an 11-2 Keep ratio), now it's being undone again. As has been pointed out, we have all kinds of images of people from my Lai, the Holocaust, Guadelcanal and Hurricane Katrina which are images of deceased people, recently deceased people, and people whose families could be "offended". The best example I can offer is File:Omar Khadr getting battlefield first aid.jpg, I'm in regular contact with the w:Khadr family; whose son is depicted in the photo - and needless to say the image is disturbing to them, but it ran in newspapers, documentaries, news broadcasts, and it would be poor judgment for us to delete it simply because of "feelings".

question[edit]

WRT to the Pangnirtung images, I am curious -- do you know how isolated Nunavut is?

I am not going to speak in favor of those images. I uploaded them in good faith. And the original flickr uploader had placed them under a CC liscense -- apparently without understanding what that meant. The email request the original uploader sent me embarrassaed me. She apparently thought that the wikipedia and wimimedia were like flickr, and that I, as the uploader, could delete the images I uploaded, without consulting anyone else.

I have got to say I disagree with you about the scope. Geo Swan (talk) 06:03, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Pic rename[edit]

Ooops, sorry! I have to admit I somehow hadn't seen the deletion notice - I happened on the pic while sorting through Category:Unidentified Anatidae, identified and recategorised it to Cat:Domesticated ducks; and seeing such a grossly POV title, decided to rename after checking first that it wasn't in use anywhere (so thought renaming would be safe!).

Yes, I take a pictures of some book but I am creator of those pictures, isn't that right? Or what should I do about it?

What I must to do about it, so that my images would not be deleted?--Gospodar svemira (talk) 19:34, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Look what I found: If I take a picture of an object with my own camera, I hold the copyright to the picture. Can't I license it any way I choose? Why do I have to worry about other copyright holders?

So, I do the same thing - use a camera and take a picture of something that is in public domain. That I take image of sky, that is obviouse in public domain, isn't?--Gospodar svemira (talk) 20:04, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

File:675 Sixth Avenue 101 5491.JPG[edit]

Excuse me, is there a reason that you're butting into this? I uploaded a file under an incorrect name, so I reuploaded it under the correct name, marked the old one as a duplicate, and then uploaded a "Please delete this file" under the old name, just to make sure it got attention. Why do you insist on reverting it because "this is not the way to delete a file"? I was under the understanding that we're, generally speaking, result oriented and not hung up on process as the be-all and end-all. What possible difference can it make to you? I'd appreciate it if you'd just back off, since it doesn't concern you and has no wider implications. Thanks, and please don't bother to respond. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:09, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Question about GNU Free License[edit]

Hi again,

I had asked about the GNU licenses for use of a modified image in a thesis. I contacted the creator of the image but haven't yet heard from him. Could you help me understand how I could use that image under the GNU free license? As for the "document" defined in the GNU free license documentation, I am still confused about the word document. Does that mean the image itself that I've used or would it mean the entire document in which that image is used? I am wary of uploading my entire thesis to wiki, but I would gladly upload the compass rose image that I got from wiki and subsequently modified. My grad school requires a writer to obtain permission from the copyright holder. I have used graphs and photos from books in my thesis and have gotten permission from those copyright holders. To comply with that permission and the grad school requirements I must cite the copyright holder as having given me permission just below the image and keep the documentation of the written permission (most of these have come via email). It it also highly advised to thank those copyright holders for the permission in the acknowledgment section. I believe if I comply with the copyright/copyleft requirements of the image license, that would suffice for my thesis if I am unable to get permission directly from the author in time. Any advice? Thanks!! Friesweg (talk) 18:05, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Knute Rockne Image[edit]

Hello Prosfilaes - I just saw your response to my query about the copyright issues related to the Knute Rockne image. I appreciate the explanation of the copyright laws. With a bit of checking, I located what may be the source of the image used here [3]. I'm wondering if this -

Date Created/Published: [no date recorded on caption card] - Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, Bain Collection - Reproduction number: LC-DIG-ggbain-38914 (digital file from original negative) - Rights Advisory: No known restrictions on publication.

changes the status of image usage, especially as regards the image's inclusion in the L of C collections and the the absence of known restrictions on usage. regards, 69.229.4.48 06:05, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

apologies - I forgot to log in to Commons - the comment above is from me. Sensei48 (talk) 06:07, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

By definition, a personal attack must contain commentary on a -personal- attribute of an individual. Their words or online behavior is not considered a personal attack. This claim is incorrect. There is nothing even offensive about the comment.

This is a list of examples. Please read over the examples before misapplying policies, as accusing others of impropriety when that is clearly not the case is a breach of incivility and not acceptable. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:06, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Applying your own standard, this is a personal attack: [4] "Someone needs to take a cluestick to about.com about how to legally reuse our photos." It is also nasty commentary that has no place in deletion discussions. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:13, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Then there is this nastiness. ""There is no use for an image of urine" strikes me as pretty absurd statement." No one in 2 years used the picture. It is obvious that you substitute your personal politics for policy, make incivil comments, and accuse people of wrong doing to try and "win". This isn't a game. Please don't act in this manner again. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:18, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
    • So you disagree with me. That doesn't make my statements incivil. I commented on the content, not the contributor.--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:24, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
It isn't a disagreement, it is your outward false statements on policy to try and cause harm to another that pointed out that you had no actual position in a discussion. That is not acceptable behavior. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:28, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Again, you act as if no reasonable person can disagree with you. That's completely unconstructive.--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:33, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
See below. An image of "drinking urine" that has no drinking nor any actual urine and not used anywhere on the WMF is not within scope. It requires some kind of use and a non-misleading title if anything. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:46, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Warning 2[edit]

You were told to stop making things up about policies as that is incivil. You edit warred and did this. You said: "It should be indisputable that your statement violated the "comment on the article's content without referring to its contributor at all""

It actually says "When in doubt, comment on the article's content..."

The policy also says: "That is, they should be directed at content and actions". That means that we are allowed to comment on on-wiki behavior.

This misquoting the policy to attack another user is highly inappropriate. Is it merely a mistake or do I need to take this to the Noticeboard? This is not acceptable in any form. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:27, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

I invite you to take to the Noticeboard.--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:30, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Are you saying that you are not done with being nasty and that you will continue to act incivility to promote a point of view that is damaging to Commons as a whole? It is odd that you would act in such a way over an image that is one 1. not someone drinking anything, 2. not necessarily urine, and 3. not used anywhere on the WMF. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:45, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
This is not over the image; it's about your habit of committing personal attacks. And what I'm saying is that you complained to the en.WP Arbcom, and got a permanent block. I doubt the Noticeboard will block you permanently, because they're laxer on stuff like that here, but I know if you take it there, you'll get the lion's share of the blowback.--Prosfilaes (talk) 23:02, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
It has been pointed out over and over that you are making things up. A personal attack, by definition, is a statement that discussions the real life individual and not on wiki statements or actions. You claimed that I made a personal attack by saying: "I don't know how you would even attempt to justify the image." Not only is there no person involved, the "you" is the hypothetical "you" meaning anyone. It expresses bafflement. Your statement is so unbelievably off base that it is done only to attack. The fact that you are unable to discuss this situation proves that you have no grounds for an argument. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:51, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
This is part of your problem. When I say that I have a problem with your actions, you consider it an attack. If I said that I didn't read that statement as having a hypothetical you, and as you were quoting someone, I still don't, you're not going to reread that statement and try and look at it through my eyes; you're going to simply accuse me of making things up again.--Prosfilaes (talk) 00:28, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
You don't say you have a problem with my actions. You misuse policy to try and belittle and intimidate me. That isn't civil. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:56, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
*Shrug* As I said, you haven't bothered to try and listen to me. You just assume the worst about me.--Prosfilaes (talk) 02:22, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Um, you went after me, not the other way around. Ottava Rima (talk) 04:24, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Category:At the Earth's Core[edit]

Hello,

I don't understand why I reverted my renaming of Category:At the Earth's Core (film) into Category:At the Earth's Core. As there is no ambiguity about the name of the category the parenthesis are not necessary.

Can you explain me why I am wrong ?

Regards

--Hercule (talk) 02:06, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

When I did it, I assumed from memory there was a book category called Category:At the Earth's Core that the film category was a part of. There certainly is potential ambiguity, as At the Earth's Core is the name of a fairly notable book whereas At the Earth's Core is a fairly non-notable movie.--Prosfilaes (talk) 02:13, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
I've just uploaded from Wikimedia a dust jacket for the book, so we certainly need categories for both.--Prosfilaes (talk) 02:18, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Fake images of elements[edit]

Of course commons isn't wikipedia. However, a very large quantity of images on commons are used on wikipedia and we don't need unscientific innaccurate fake images there. But neither do we need them here, on commons. Besides the fact that they were fake the images were also poor quality and served absolutely no purpose. I don't feel that opposing everybody's deletion view on the basis that this isn't wikipedia is entirely valid since the fact that the images were in use on wikipedia was usually only part of the users reasoning. This is of course moot because the fake images have fortunately now all been deleted. Regards Polyamorph (talk) 12:13, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

It's none of your business what images Wikipedia uses. You don't have the right to delete images to protect poor stupid Wikipedians who don't know any better from them.--Prosfilaes (talk) 18:35, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
You're 100% wrong there and the idea that you think "poor stupid wikipedians who don't know any better" only goes to show how in truth you know these images are unfit for purpose. They are innaccurate and have zero educational value. In fact they are misleading and as such fail commons policy. So like I said, if users of wikipedia wish to comment then that is their choice. At the end of the day the same policy which makes such images unsuitable for wikipedia make them unsuitable for commons. Polyamorph (talk) 20:08, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
You think they're stupid, because otherwise you would be fine letting them choose which images to use there. I think the concept of having pictures of things we don't have photographs for, whether it be dinosaurs or elements is a good one. The policy says that when a Wikipedia has chosen to use a picture, we don't second guess it, and you ignoring that policy is Wikipedia-hostile.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:42, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
No it's not because you're ignoring the fact that many of the users who commented on the deletion discussion (including myself) are scientists and edit the chemical articles on wikipedia and see absolutely no value in fake images of elements. Like I have repeatedly said they were scientifically innaccurate. Sure the idea of illustrating things we don't have real images for is fine but at least some degree of effort should be made to ensure such images are accurate is necessary. Otherwise they are misleading and pure fantasy. If you support that then you're entitled to have that opinion but as is clear you are in a minority as the majority of us prefer scientific accuracy over scientific fallacy. Polyamorph (talk) 09:04, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
So what? You're obviously in a minority on the Lithuanian Wikipedia, since they kept the images up. You're invoking the tyranny of the majority here.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:50, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
That is no excuse for hosting blatantly scientifically innaccuarate and misleading images. This is such an important point that any idea of responsiblity of hosting other projects images is overuled by the fact that by doing so readers receive incorrect and false information. There is no justification for hosting such images and so fact goodness sense prevailed and the images were deleted. Polyamorph (talk) 08:32, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

clicked upload twice on same picture, by mistake[edit]

Thanks for adding the proper license tag to the picture I uploaded today: "File:Collier's2-2-1924." This might seem very minor, but, there are three uploads for that picture. The middle one with the time of 22:28 is bogus, and should be deleted. What happened was I uploaded it and then realized I left no "comment," so went back and uploaded it again three minutes later with a "comment." It's the last of four pictures in the article, "Paul Martin (illustrator). Thanks, or skip it if too minor. JimPercy (talk) 02:50, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Laraine Day Photos[edit]

Hello, would you mind terribly chosing, or maybe uploading a new, picture from the Wikipedia Commons and adding it to the Laraine Day page at Wikipedia. For some reason I am temporaily blocked from editing, the downfall of a shared computer, and I can't and I noticed there are a lot of pictures of her here on the commons but on her page there isn't a lead image anymore. Would you mind adding a lead one there real quick so that saves time for others?68.70.27.96 20:34, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

I see no point in carrying on a discussion about license terms with someone who can't be bothered to find the actual license terms. If you can't see the link on the license template at Commons, Google would have found them for you.--Prosfilaes (talk) 17:13, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Can you maybe?[edit]

Hi, Prosfilaes, are you able to edit pages on Wikipedia. If so maybe you can add one of the new Laraine Day pictures as a lead image for her article. There has been some abuse their lately and when I tried to add one in one of the bots or editors reverted everything and won't let me fix it. Can you help me out with that? She was my Great Grandmother and it would mean a lot to me.Rosalie My Darling (talk) 18:27, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

I have no idea why you're bothering me with this.--Prosfilaes (talk) 18:34, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

I apologize, I didn't mean to bother you. I won't do it again. I don't know whether you can edit on the actual Wikipedia site and I thought maybe you can add a lead image of her there from one of her files here because lately people have tried to edit her page with information and lead images and the site is just reverting everything left, right, and sideways. I'm sorry I wasted you time, I won't do it again.Rosalie My Darling (talk) 18:41, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

vandalism of flyb.jpg[edit]

Hi there, thanks for your message. This is user $01734071290912$ on wikipedia. I dont have an account here. As part of a copyright dispute concerning all my uploaded material which was taken from a flickr account, i am removing all the copyright licenses which were created fraudulently. Is there a way i could make this clear so that my changes do not continue to be reverted? Thanks

Your changes will continue to be reverted; take them to DR and explain clearly your case if you want them deleted.--Prosfilaes (talk) 09:29, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
did not realise i'd ever be defending wikimedia's copyright policy against a wikimedia administrator. I'm getting stick from wiki about copyright i shouldn't have to do the same with you. Thanks for your input though.
You should be able to anonymously demand and get the deletion of any files you want? I think that's a stupid idea.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:29, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
You should be able to put files forward for deletion where there is a legitimate reason and not face opposition from wiki administrators working against wiki policy. Don't kid yourself that i'm suggesting anything more drastic than that. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.5.45.32 (talk • contribs) 03:24, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
I look at your contributions, and don't see any evidence that you put any files for deletion and gave a legitimate reason. Instead of nominating for deletion, you removed information from files.--Prosfilaes (talk) 04:24, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Yep, i explained that in the first message above thanks. The information i was deleting was the stuff that was fraudulent which made sense to me. Then you explained that instead i needed to enter a deletion request detailing this fact. My technique worked ok for the other photos and would have worked just fine again here if it wasn't for you being the worlds biggest noob. xxx
It made sense to you; it was nonetheless wrong.--Prosfilaes (talk) 09:05, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

URAA[edit]

Note to self, for future discussion: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Legal/Legal_Policies#Office_Actions meta:Legal/Legal_Policies#Office_Actions says:

Importantly, the Wikimedia Foundation does not advise the Community to ignore laws that are under challenge.
Example: The Wikimedia Foundation has decided to challenge a copyright law in Spain that affects whether certain art falls into the public domain. Users who are subject to Spanish law should continue to comply with that law while it remains legally valid. This is so even if the Wikimedia Foundation itself is challenging the law.

File:Kiek in de kök regnr3015.jpg[edit]

That picture was nominated for deletion by author because of confusion. He wanted that picture to participate in Wiki Loves Monuments competition, but uploaded it mistakenly with the general upload wizard. So he nominated it for deletion and wanted to upload the picture again with Wiki Loves Monuments wizard, but it wasn't possible. User WikedKentaur (who is one of the organizers of Wiki Loves Monuments in Estonia) added appropriate competition templates and removed the deletion tag. Please don't revert that. Thank you. Adeliine (talk) 16:36, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

There's an open DR on that. Until that DR is closed, the deletion tag shouldn't be removed. What should be done is an explanation put on the DR page and why it shouldn't be deleted, and let an admin close the DR as a keep.--Prosfilaes (talk) 20:52, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

a defensive fine point[edit]

It is defensive and it is a fine point, yet I make it anyways.

I thought "photobucket" to be appropriate because the idea of having those images tagged "Anna" "Family" "Rome" and "Great" on Flickr was as painful to me as the way they had been uploaded here.

Now you know, my defensive fine point about all of this. -- Queeg (talk) 16:40, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

User:Яндекс[edit]

Hi Prosfilaes, sorry if I would had used a clearer edit summary, but actually I already explained you who is targeting that RfD ;)

--Vituzzu (talk) 18:10, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh I already said that, but keep in mind there where already similar reverts on the page which was, definitely, a low-traffic one, finally there are so many stuffs to revert I hope I don't have to always explain even obvious ones. Anyway, I have two questions for you: since you surely knew what I was doing, why did you rollback me rathen the simply asking me to use clearer summaries? Why didn't you answer to what I wrote you on Jan, 9?
--Vituzzu (talk) 09:24, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Reverting a vote is never obvious. Reverting any change on a discussion page that's merely adds a comment and isn't abusive isn't obvious. And sockpuppet or no, leaving one message on their talk page makes it clear to both them and others why you're reverting their posts. I didn't know what you were doing at the time; I watch a lot of pages and forgot about the IP revert on this one.
What did you want me to answer on January 9? I could have taken this issue up with you then, but I was in a mood to let it lie.--Prosfilaes (talk) 09:50, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Considering the history it should have been almost obvious. Actually he knew why I was reverting his comments, you can see he understood I cannot lock him by myself unless it's an unified account. If you didn't see the page history it was your fault, not mine.
Saying it in a few word I ought be clearer and maybe I shouldn't rely so strongly on others' eye ;p
Finally, dealing with Jan a quick feedback is always welcome and prevents further misunderstandings. --Vituzzu (talk) 23:29, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
I didn't want to argue with you in January. Isn't that my right, not to participate in discussions when I don't want to?--Prosfilaes (talk) 00:34, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Template:PD-Afghanistan[edit]

I did give the user a detailed explanation in their talk page if you have not noticed. You have just broken categorization of all Afghan images disrupting the ongoing copyright review after the establishment of Afghan copyright law - something that has been ongoing since early March. In commons we do not normally remove working code without prior discussion particularly if someone states that it has a use. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 12:22, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Since when do we not discuss edits on the talk page of the item being discussed? This is not a private discussion between two users.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:40, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Sure it is. You discuss first and then remove code that is in use. Otherwise it is a private discussion or private disruption if you will. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 01:51, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

DR tag[edit]

If I don´t remember bad, you had removed the copyright violation tag first. So before giving me such advise, be respectful with my previous edits on the logo. Thanks. Fma12 (talk) 01:32, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

I don´t want to start an edit war with you, I have better things to do. And if you want to search for all my uploads and nominate them for deletion, so go ahead, have fun. Fma12 (talk) 01:38, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

File:Middx v NZ 1905.jpg[edit]

What I really admire about you is how persistent (or just stubborn?) you are. I think you have kept an eye on every move I make on Commons, just to edit exactly the oppose I had edited first. You could be really collaborative if you wanted... (and I would really appreciate that) but you always prefer to take the other way. A pity. Fma12 (talk) 22:03, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

If you refer to the AFA file, I put a copyvio because I thought that logo was a clear copyright violation (from my opinion, of course). Then you changed it to DR, what is ok, but your next move was to substitute the logo (more than once) on all WP pages where it appears. Moreover, you accused me of "stealing" (or something like that) the SVG file although I never attributed the authorship of such file (which is already registered). What do you want I respond in the edit summary? We have different opinions, probably I'm right, probably you're right or probably both of us are wrong. But you preferred to start an edit war instead of trying to reach a consensus, for example using my talk page. That's what I refer when I talk about "being collaborative". I hope things change, really, or this will be the neverending story. Fma12 (talk) 22:32, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
I changed it to a DR, then you changed it back to a copyvio notice on the 9th of April.[6] I have no edits on Wikipedia in that time period. You uploaded the SVG file to Wikipedia and dropped the name of the person who turned it into an SVG file.
I have no clue what you mean by "registered".--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:39, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

der Stürmer[edit]

Why have you deleted the 4 front pages of the Stürmer, published more than 70 yrs ago? They are copyrightfree according to the Zeitungszeugen.

You must not be more royalist than the King. And do not forget the policy of WP has always been to fight the liberty killing copyright --FLLL (talk) 07:04, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes, there are times you must be more royalist then the King. In any case, I didn't delete the images. They were deleted because they had no license, and they had no license because of all this talk about "Zeitungszeugen", nobody bothered to put clear licenses on them. Feel free to take it to Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests‎, and be ready to explain clearly why they're actually copyright free.--Prosfilaes (talk) 07:31, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Sorry to contradict you: if you read carefully the article you will see:

  • Bavaria has acquired the property rights of Third Reich propaganda material. (it is not limited to publisher)
  • The court gave authorization to publish the Zeitungszeugen which included inflammatory cartoons (see article) and photos. In the case of the nazi propaganda, the rights of the artists and authors are owned by Bavaria and free after 70 years of the publication as per court decision.

I repeat: Why do you want to be more royalist than the king, if the court considers the Nazi propanganda material to be free of copyrights after 70 years of publication.--FLLL (talk) 08:02, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
