An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

SarahStierch, congratulations! You now have administrator rights on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons on irc.freenode.net. There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators: #wikimedia-commons-admin.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references.

yes it is! Sarah (talk) 04:04, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Edit[edit]

Hi, I did an edit to this file. I was just thought I would let you know and if there is a guideline against it then feel free to have admin revdel it. I probably should have asked first.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:44, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Deletion requests closing[edit]

Hi, Sarah. Congratulations for being an admin now. You closed deletion requests for File:Helena'snewtattoo.jpg and File:Kappanoyu Statue.JPG as deleted, but you did not delete these files. Also, please could you look at Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Nova-sport.png. The deletion request was closed as deleted, but the file was kept. Taivo (talk) 09:20, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

The same for File:Bartomeu Ribó- Pere el gran al coll de Panissars.jpg. Taivo (talk) 12:39, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Same for Commons:Deletion requests/File:Helena'snewtattoo.jpg. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:41, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
DOH! That is embarrassing. I think I did the SAME thing when I closed my first deletion requests on Wikipedia. Let me take care of these now :) Sarah (talk) 14:53, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
✓ Done :) Sarah (talk) 14:55, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

OTRS[edit]

Hi, could you please lock a ticket before you start working on it, so that we are not working simultaneously on the same tickets? Jcb (talk) 15:27, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Crazy, that's the first time that has ever happened to me in two years! Sarah (talk) 15:28, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Mojtaba Salimi[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you have added permissions to files previously deleted. does the permission also verifies that Mojtaba Salimi is the photographer or copyright holder of these works? are you sure that this one was not published in France for the first time?  ■ MMXX talk 17:35, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

The OTRS was from Rouhani's website and Salimi's representatives. I'm pretty confident with it. I have a feeling Salimi is a more experienced and older photographer than we might be used to working with. Anyway, if you are concerned about that one image, you're welcome to take up any concerns about it via his talk page perhaps. Sarah (talk) 17:38, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Alright, since the permission is from an official source, I'm going to assume good faith and believe that they have the right to publish these photos.  ■ MMXX talk 15:23, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

File:Rabati,_Akhaltsikhe,_Georgia.jpg[edit]

Hello, i read this and don't understand why OTRS didn't confirmed permission, i wrote by email to the Editor-in-Chief of civil.ge and he get permission to me to add file, in form which it has now.--Giorgi Balakhadze Flag of Georgia.svg 18:51, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

File:George Hill, portrait.jpg[edit]

Hi, I have processed ticket 2013060110000864 and I do not find that this contains a valid permission. I don't know what made you undelete this file. They are trying to pressure me e.g. by mail, with strange statements about our policies. Jcb (talk) 21:05, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Please, do not tag images with the permission tag before permission is confirmed. Any use of the tag before permission is confirmed is deceptive. Since we do not know who the photographer is we can not be certain the person has the rights to the image. MorganKevinJ(talk) 22:27, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Well, I did go through about 250 OTRS permissions for Commons and Wikipedia the other day. So I suppose one or two slip up's isn't too bad. Looks like ya'll took care of it. Great work and thanks for a heads up. Thanks for the work you do! Sarah (talk) 00:34, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Ok, no problem. And thanks for all the work at OTRS. Jcb (talk) 16:35, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

copyright[edit]

Hi regarding your templating of my old talkpage with a threat to block template

http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Off2riorob&diff=98405289&oldid=98405237

I uploaded thousands of move to commons templated en wikipedia pics to commons - If one or two of them are disputed - that is fine by me - delete them - delete them all if you want - but I was a good faith user using the best of my copyright knowledge simply transfering templated pics from en wiki to commons - I was not the original uploader to en wikipedia of any of the pics. Regards - Youreallycan (talk) 12:32, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

As an administrator you are expected and required to respond to comments regarding your actions[edit]

As an administrator you are expected and required to respond to comments regarding your actions - at least a, "yes I see your comment" - or something - you have returned to editing and failed to respond to me at all - did you even read my post? Youreallycan (talk) 04:54, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

First thing. COM:MELLOW out a bit. The statement on the template "Wikimedia Commons takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing." is a standard thing, because due to the number of copyvios that people upload we simply need to let people know that we take copyvios seriously here on Commons. You are asking that Sarah extend good faith to you, the same thing needs to occur from your end as well. russavia (talk) 07:28, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi everyone. Sorry for the delay, I am traveling and working right now at a workshop I'm helping to run, so I'm not really on Commons right now. Thanks so much for sharing your story with me Youreallycan. I was merely doing my job as an admin - and I did not know you weren't the original uploader and perhaps that is my fault for not looking into it further. Thanks for the contributions you make and thank you for letting me know what type of work you are doing! It's great for me, especially as a new administrator, to know. Sarah (talk) 07:42, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
@Youreallycan, already 4 days ago I posted an explaination to your other talkpage, which in essence said the same as Russavia above. However, you seem to have ignored it. Nobody accuses you to be a copyviolator. But every now and then I have made the same experience that files, when transferred to Commons, were either found to be copyvios or at least missing a valid permission, though they had been hosted on :en for quite a while. That doesn't mean people over at :en are idiots or something. Scrutiny for the copyright status has changed (increased) over the years on both projects. --Túrelio (talk) 07:45, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Simon Libsig.jpg[edit]

Hi Sarah, just thought I'd pop you a link to Commons:Deletion requests/File:Simon Libsig.jpg which you may be interested in looking at. In this instance Turelio appears to have been correct in his tagging this photo as missing permission. I see you removed that tagging stating that the licence is on Flickr. If this was a case of where the licence was legit, Template:Flickrreview is available to show that the licence has been checked by an authorised Commons person (this is normally done by bot, but appears to have been missed on this occasion). Anyway, just an FYI for you. russavia (talk) 11:13, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks and cheers[edit]

Hi. I didn't need to add a license, it's correct on the image. Sarah (talk) 17:12, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
Yes, because I applied it after I asked on COM:OTRS/Noticeboard for it. --JuTa 19:38, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi Sarah, {{copyvio}} is for obvious copyright violations (images ripped from the web etc.), not for difficult cases like freedom of panorama. The fact that you had to include this whole story already indicates that it's not very obvious. Please use regular deletion requests in the future and it's also nice to inform the contributor.

Hi Sarah, I fear we will need to discuss whether this shot is legitimate or a derivative violating the copyright of Helmut Newton. Could you consider blanking out the Newton poster? --Túrelio (talk) 18:41, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

AH! Good point. I wasn't even thinking about it. I have to finish some work (work work, not fun volunteer work :) ) and then I can fix it. Is it OK for us to leave it for now until I can upload a new version or should I delete it for now? Sarah (talk) 00:54, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
No problem, if it doesn't take weeks. --Túrelio (talk) 08:02, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

File:United States Post Office, Berkeley, California - Stierch - 14.jpg[edit]

Hi SarahStierch; Your photograph of the mural detail at the United States Post Office, Berkeley, California, is well executed and a valuable contribution to Commons. However, I wonder if the underlying work is protected by copyright. "Often mistaken for WPA art, post office murals were actually executed by artists working for the Section of Fine Arts. Commonly known as "the Section," it was established in 1934 and administered by the Procurement Division of the Treasury Department."[1] To me, this suggests that {{PD-USGov-WPA}} added on 5 September 2012 by Slowking4 may be inapplicable.[2] I wonder if you would be kind enough to clarify the copyright status of the underlying work, please? Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 16:25, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

I just saw the OTRS arriving for some pictures I only uploaded yesterday - that's great, by far the quickest that the OTRS procedure has ever worked for me so I wanted to thank you volunteers. Cheers, mr.choppers (talk)-en- 22:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC)


I just left a message on the page where a number of authorised images are scheduled for deletion. Please note that all of these images were released with explicit authorisation by the State Library of New South Wales with the OTRS process completed and filed. Please explain what the issue is with these images or the category they have been included in. Aliaretiree (talk) 03:25, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Removal File:François Glorieux and Michael Jackson.jpg[edit]

Why was it removed? I provided sufficient information , even the photographer and I know the composer himself who onws the rights to the picture.

License from the author of the present.[edit]

Hello Sarah. Could you explain why you need to delete the images of the artist Tatarnikov Alexander? He loaded them under the license, and that he is allowed to use pictures if you want to delete an article in the English Wikipedia, delete and to the rest of the drawings is not clear why such an attitude. Just a confirmation already not once was, but you continue to put die for deletion. That does not appeal to you? Could you tell me please? I think this is done to remove the article.


Yes indeed article for the second time is added but are now better with pictures. But if you want to delete, and then delete, but the images have to do with it? You've written here: their work has been speedy deleted in English Wikipedia before, and now a new discussion is taking place to delete their autobiography again. We can argue about the encyclopedic worth of these images, or use the whole Commons:What_Commons_is_not#Commons_is_not_your_personal_free_web_host policy. I just felt like if I didn't nominate these for deletion I'd lose sleep. It follows from this that don't like the picture and there is pressure to delete the article and pictures with them. Looks like it.


--- In Russia there is an article in the criminal code - bringing of a person to a grave condition.

Hello. The best place to discuss this is here. Not on my talk page. Therefore others can participate. Thanks. Sarah (talk) 19:39, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Explain why you don't like these pictures? It is not clear it. Remove then the article in the English Wikipedia, once this guy is so bad for you, and the pictures he himself and license there. Put then license these pictures, you OTRS account there.. Help the individual. it's better than just to take and put to delete and then listen to different is not the right words.. We love you, and you don't like creativity.

Favorites gadget[edit]

Hi Sarah, yesterday in the Hangout you mentioned that it would be nice to have a tool to quickly mark an image as a "favorite". I whipped up a gadget and thought you might be interested in helping test it. If you are add

importScript('MediaWiki:Gadget-Favorites.js');

To your userscript page. On file pages there is a new "Fave" link next to the Bookmark star (this will be made into a fancy thumbs up icon soon, as the star and heart icons are already used). There is a lot of magic going on in the background to make sure every favorite is safely saved in your Favorites gallery. --Dschwen (talk) 21:02, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

I got some good suggestions from User:MarkTraceur, will be implementing those tonight. They will cause incompatibilities with older version (Array->Object switch). So you might want to hold off for another day. --Dschwen (talk) 14:55, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Change is already implemented now. --Dschwen (talk) 15:30, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Right on! I haven't had a chance to fiddle with it yet. Thanks for letting me know and thanks for working on this :) Sarah (talk) 22:28, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Upload from Flickr[edit]

Sarah - can you look into how to upload using a Flickr URL? Thanks.--ɱ (talk) 22:51, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Aloha![edit]

Hi Sarah! Hey, there is a little trouble brewing with photos you uploaded on enwiki with a fair use rationale. They have been marked for transfer to Commons, and I already deleted them because of the FU tag. It seems like you took those photos, but your name was added way after the first upload. Could you have please a look and let me know? Maybe you could do a quick OTRS? Shall I restore? Thanks a bunch! Here are the files: File:Our Lady of Fatima Detail.jpg and File:Our Lady Of Fatima Back1.jpg --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 13:22, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Those pictures were taken by me but the artwork is not out of copyright. The images were used on an article on English Wikipedia for the sculpture. While the image I took might be freely licensed, the artwork in the image is now. It's copyrighted (or no known copyright) so they are OK to be deleted. Except the one on EN WP that is being used for depicting the artwork. Sarah (talk) 22:13, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Re-edition of the Photowikimeetup in Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hello SarahStierch! in the case that you are also visiting this year's Wikimania in London, you may be interested in attending the new edition of the photowikimeetup that took place in Hong Kong last year, and where you listed up. As the preparation is not yet settled, you are more than welcomed to take part in the discussion here. All the best, Poco2 17:39, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

File:The Scotsman Hotel.jpg[edit]

Hi there,

I notice you uploaded (and apparently took) this photograph which is labelled as The Scotsman hotel in Edinburgh. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is mistaken- my first thought was that it's an attractive building, but not one that looks anything like The Scotsman hotel. A comment on your Flickr page expresses the same sentiment.

A little work with Google Image search suggests it's probably the clock tower of the red brick section of Kings Cross railway station in London. See here and here, for example.

Could you please confirm if this is correct (or ought to be, since I'm assuming you know if you visited London or not!)? Thanks, Ubcule (talk) 20:52, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in Kürze[edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo SarahStierch,

in Kürze ist es wieder soweit. Der nun schon traditionelle Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments wird im September zum vierten Mal stattfinden. In ähnlicher Form hatte unlängst der Wettbewerb "Wiki Loves Earth" eine erfolgreiche Premiere. Zu allen bisherigen vier Wettbewerben haben seit 2011 gut 3000 unterschiedliche Teilnehmer (User) ihren Beitrag geleistet. Du warst dabei, und bist auch herzlich eingeladen, am bevorstehenden WLM-Wettbewerb wieder dabei zu sein.

Allein in Deutschland wurden in den letzten drei Jahren im Rahmen von WLM rund 100.000 Fotos zu den insgesamt ca. 850.000 Kulturdenkmalen bundesweit hochgeladen. Jährlich haben sich mehrere Hundert Wiki-Fotographen daran beteiligt. Auch im kommenden Denkmalmonat wird dies gewiss wieder der Fall sein. Der Tag des offenen Denkmals am 14. September bietet bundesweit vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Denkmale nicht nur von außen, sondern auch von innen zu fotografieren. Denkmallisten sind dabei ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt und zugleich auch Ziel der Einbindung der Fotos. Auch in diesem Jahr sind wieder neue Denkmallisten hinzugekommen, die hilfreich bei der Planung von individuellen oder Gruppen-Fototouren sind und auf eine Bebilderung warten, wie z.B. zu Görlitz oder Zittau. Unter den Landeshauptstädten fehlt nur noch Stuttgart. Aber auch hier ist Licht in Sicht.

In der Mitte Deutschlands hat die Denkmallandschaft der thüringischen Landeshauptstadt Erfurt nun das Licht der Wikipedia-Welt entdeckt. Mehr als 50 Tabellen enthalten 3.700 Denkmale. Allein die wunderschön restaurierte Altstadt umfasst 1.800 Denkmale. Eine von WMDE geförderte WLM-Fototour nach Erfurt am Wochenende vom 29. – 31. August lädt herzlich ein, diese einzigartige Kulturlandschaft zu dokumentieren. Mehr Informationen findest Du auf der Projektseite.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 16. August 2014)
