Christopher Michel photos of Ladakh[edit]

Hi Russavia

I'm wondering why there are so many of these files you got from Flikr and placed in the categories Kalachakra, Leh, Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama in 2014? Many bear little relationship to the category names, some seem to be just pictures of the photographer's friends, and the file names - which are usually nearly the same - often don't have anything to do with the content. Some of the photos also don't seem realistically useful for any Wikimedia project or educational purpose. (And do we need so many pictures of Robert Thurman? - why not just select the better ones?) These files also nearly all need much better descriptions. I've tried to sort this out a little - mostly by moving many of the images to Category:Kalachakra empowerment, Ladakh, 2014 (which at least separates them from the main Kalachakra and Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama in 2014 categories) - and, where the content was obvious to me, to other relevant categories. If you are going to do this kind of mass upload, don't you think it might be better to just place the files in a holding category until they can be properly renamed and categorized rather than flooding useful categories with files not really relevant to the category?

Sorry about that. I now realize this is an Instagram type effect as you also uploaded another version of this file. Christopher Fynn (talk)) 19:10, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

IDF file of three teens of 2014 kidnapping and murder of Israeli teenagers[edit]

I was trying to upload https://www.flickr.com/photos/idfonline/14433226962/ when I learned that it (Brother's_Keeper_Operation_in_Judea_&_Samaria_(14433226962).jpg) had already been deleted at the uploader's request due to concerns that it is outside of Commons' scope. It is obviously an IDF file meant to persuade people to take its side but it is a freely-licensed photo of the teenage boys who are the subject of the en:2014 kidnapping and murder of Israeli teenagers so I would like to upload this file.

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 18:47, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

I actually deleted that file for COM:PRP. There's no evidence that the IDF owns copyright over the images. The photographer of each photo would need to give permission. russavia (talk) 20:06, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
What I plan to do is make a comment on that image and ask the IDF about the three images (I assume they got the images from the families): "Dear IDF, my name is WhisperToMe and I am a volunteer at Wikipedia. I wish to upload this picture to the Wikimedia Commons so Wikipedia articles (including but not limited to the Hebrew, English, Arabic, and Russian Wikipedias) will have the image of the victims. In order for me to do that we need to clarify the copyright status of the images of the three boys. Do you have permission to use the photos of the boys? What kind of permission did the owners of the photos give you? The Wikimedia Commons accepts freely-usable photos (may be redistributed commercially with attribution). Please clarify the copyright status. Thank you" WhisperToMe (talk) 09:07, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
I made the post. I hope the IDF responds. I would love to use the picture on various Wikipedias and add a multilingual description. WhisperToMe (talk) 11:12, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
That's fine, but tangible evidence is going to be required of any copyright transfer. russavia (talk) 16:48, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
What type of evidence would you request? I may post this request for evidence on the IDF page. It may be good to get input from the Commons community re:the needed evidence. WhisperToMe (talk) 18:27, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

File moved[edit]

Just to let you know, OTRS received an email that a Flickr photo uploaded by you was incorrectly named. The Flickr user is to blame, so I have left a note there. I have moved the file and changed the description. Green Giant (talk) 22:45, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
