Hello Quartermaster!

Thanks for your contributions to the Commons. Unfortunately there is a problem with Pierson's Puppeteer.jpg, which caused me to nominate it for deletion.

You would reply on my talk page just like you did here. My concern is that although you created this creature you made it with copyrighted components of EA/Maxis. The EULA (which you agreed to when you installed the program) clearly defines what EA/Maxis claims copyright on (everything) and what you can do with it. There is no wording or indication that you can use images/art/creatures that you create with Spore for a commercial purpose. Commons requires all the images hosted here to be licensed under a license agreement that ALLOWS commercial use. Since the EULA doesn't explicitly give you the copyright rights to your creations for commercial purposes you couldn't license the image here for commercial purposes either. You can't compare Spore to Microsoft paint or photoshop since that type of program doesn't claim copyright ownership of your creations (although everything created in those may not be legally copyrighted to you, like you couldn't import and save an image someone else owns and then claim copyright over it). As for other games you stated like Second Life and World of Warcraft those are different. Second Life's business model depends on user content, but even their EULA gives them ownership over your content, likewise a screenshot from it likely will contain art/models/graphics that are not SOLELY the work of the person taking the screenshot, so copyright issues could come up from that. World of Warcraft is entirely different the user has no legal right or copyright over anything in the game, so screen shots of that would NOT be allowed on Commons, they could be used on Wikipedia provided they have a sufficient'fair use' claim and are scaled down to a small size. Hope that answers some of your questions. Raeky (talk) 21:45, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Quartermaster!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

I do not think the workers were playing mah jong. I suppose they were playing a cheese game, may be w:Weiqi or w:Xiangqi.刻意 (talk) 19:00, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Jackrabbitvibrator.jpg[edit]

Hello, you have added a sexual image to Wikimedia Commons, unfortunately it seems like the consensus has been reached to delete that file. I would like to thank you for making this project develop and grow, but unfortunately not every image about sex is allowed to remain here. Do not feel disheartened, many other sexual images are kept here, and hopefully your future uploads will meet the criteria for inclusion. But i thought that you might be interested that there are projects which are more interested in sexually explicit and freely licenced material, like Freedom Porn which distributes its content under Free Art Licence or in public domain. You may want to check it out and see if you would be interested in uploading there as well as here. VolodyA! V Anarhist (talk)
