Berlin is Prague?[edit]

Hi. What is wrong? The categories, or the coordinates? --ŠJů (talk) 17:57, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

ŠJů I'd say the co-ordinates. Tags on Flickr say it is in Prague. russavia (talk) 18:05, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
The photo is created by SONY DSC-HX5V camera with GPS and compass. I cann't imagine somebody falsifying EXIF data from the camera in such way, also such defect of the camera is not just probable. Thank you for the information that the "Prague" was from Flickr tags. --ŠJů (talk) 18:15, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Mass deletion of kept files in an already closed DR[edit]

Hi, on Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:La Nación Argentina Libre justa y soberana you have deleted 110 files listed in an already closed (after 7+ days) deletion request. That's not covered by the deletion policies here. Admins might overrule each other for obvious reasons, e.g., fixing errors or reverting abuse, but otherwise they are supposed to follow the same rules as everybody else.

Opening the DR again or just restarting it from scratch is an idea, if you don't like the "appeal" business in the deletion policy, but at that point you are the nominator, i.e., you can't close your own DR "per nom". Please undelete the files and find a solution reflecting what the deletion policy means. As an admin you can't pull IAR when using elevated rights.

The most important policies on this project are COM:L and COM:PRP. If files on this project are in violation of either of those policies, then they unfortunately have to be deleted. The close by Yannf was not in compliance with any of those policies and used a discussion which was firmly rejected by the community.
There may be other solutions to this issue, such as hosting some files outside of the US, but then this still presents a problem in that they can't be used on projects such as English Wikipedia which uses US law in its guiding principles. A solution is out there, but there needs to be the will by the community to find it.
Until such time as that occurs, we simply can not, and will not, allow files which are in direct contravention of COM:L and COM:PRP to be hosted on our projects. We have an obligation to ourselves and our re-users (including outside of Wikimedia projects) to ensure that files we host can be safely used by anyone for any purpose. If we ignore this obligation, then we may as well shut up shop and all go home.
You can take this to COM:UDEL if you so wish, but the same argument will be made there. russavia (talk) 04:29, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
PRP protects the WMF as hoster (incl. uses on WikiMedia projects) and other re-users. The WMF in essence already said that they are not interested in URAA bulk deletions. And for "other users" somebody added a template clearly stating that this could be one of those URAA cases, if a legit third party shows up claiming a copyright. So all users are warned and willing to let's see what happens.
A third important policy is "in use". PRP should beat "in use" only in hopeless cases, i.e., nobody including the uploader has a clue about author/source/license. Already existing good faith users also need protection, if they link to their source here. And a fourth important policy could be "admins don't overrule each other ignoring all rules for non-admins, unless they must", but admittedly that doesn't exist outside of my imagination.
If you can tell that there were no "in use" cases for these images I'd skip the undeletion procedure as not really important, but (formerly) used images would deserve a third (admin) opinion about the procedural question. Was that also you, with some laser show, where an admin reverted his own "keep: no copyright for light" after an immediate new DR discussion to "delete"? That also upset me, because it ignored all others supporting the original "keep". –Be..anyone (talk) 06:51, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm not repeating myself here. I've said everything that needed to be said both on the DR and above. russavia (talk) 07:11, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Incorrect categorisation[edit]

Hello again. I came across about 20 files that started with "Backroads New Mexico" in the filename (e.g. File:Backroads New Mexico (14229826890).jpg). You had uploaded them from Flickr and added two incorrect categories, one of them being Category:Mexico instead of Category:New Mexico. Can you please be more careful with assigning categories? Inaccuracy is harmful to Commons. Regards. Alan Liefting (talk) 01:14, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Alan, these are in Category:Files uploaded by Russavia (cleanup), meaning I have to do the full cleanup on images. It's more important to have the images whilst they are available under CC licence, and then the real work can be done by myself. Thanks russavia (talk) 01:30, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
I would prefer to have the categories are added after your cleanup so that we do not have inaccurate info on Commons. The series of images in question have been inaccurately assigned to a category for over three weeks. Alan Liefting (talk) 01:43, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
You have got 100,000 images in Category:Files uploaded by Russavia (cleanup)! Alan Liefting (talk) 04:48, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes...and? I've uploaded 500,000 images in the last 18 months. There is constant turnover in the category. What exactly is your problem. russavia (talk) 04:55, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Just seems like a lot of work that needs doing. Alan Liefting (talk) 05:53, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Not really, with a HotCat and Cat-a-lot I can knock off several thousand in a day. But at the moment I am concentrating on getting more permissions from numerous photographers. russavia (talk) 10:24, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
