The photos from Lawrence Berkeley Library can not be uploaded to WikiCommons. The reason is that the library do not allow commercial use of the photos [1]: "These images may not be used for commercial purposes, noting exceptions for scientific or educational use as referenced above. The Laboratory will consider and respond to written requests for specific usage."

Image:Openoffice2-screenshot.png[edit]

I put Image:Openoffice2-screenshot.png under {{Incomplete license}} because I don't think it should be under PD since its from a program copyrighted under LGPL. Instead shouldn't it be {{Free screenshot}}{{LGPL}}. However all this licensing stuff makes my head spin so I may be wrong, and if that is so I apologize for the incovidance.

Furthermore, one should use a screenshot from a suitable Linux distribution as the parts of the Windows XP user interface visible in your shot are not free. ed g2stalk 18:27, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

Hi R.O.C,

I noticed you marked several Chinese province maps, such as Image:Weifang.png, as speedy delete because they were "redundant". This map is actually different to other map - they're not versions of the same image. "Redundancy" like this is not a speedy deletion criteria, so I have removed the speedy delete tags from them.

If you want images like this deleted, please list them on COM:DEL with your reason. But I should tell you, I don't think they will be deleted. There is a policy proposal at the momentCommons:Village pump/Policy proposal:No deletion of improved versions of images which you can comment on if you like.

If you have any comments please write a note on my Talk page. Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 14:09, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Tiananmen Hand Poster.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL-self}} to release it under the GFDL or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

Hello R.O.C,

the following content you uploaded is not free and therefore had to be deleted:

Image:Openoffice2-screenshot.png

The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:

  • use in any work, regardless of content
  • creation of derivative works
  • commercial use
  • free distribution

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on the Wikimedia Commons. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on the Wikimedia Commons: "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how the Wikimedia Commons works. Thanks for your contribution, and please do leave me a message if you have further questions.

Please see Commons:Licensing#Screenshots. LX (talk, contribs) 14:25, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, R.O.C!

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.
