Thanks for uploading File:HomalopsisBuccataRooij.jpg. This media is missing permission information. A source is given, but there is no proof that the author or copyright holder agreed to license the file under the given license. Please provide a link to an appropriate webpage with license information, or send an email with copy of a written permission to OTRS (permissions-commons@wikimedia.org). This also applies if you are the author yourself.

Please see this page for more information on how to confirm permission, and Commons:Permission if you would like to understand why we ask for permission when uploading work that is not your own.

The file probably has been deleted. If you sent a permission, try to send it again after 14 days. Do not re-upload. When the OTRS-member processes your mail, the file can be undeleted.

  • {{PD-1923}} is not enough in any case, since this template is used only with other templates to prove that the work is in PD not only in the state of origin but also in the USA. The main problem is that the work is not in PD in Netherlands (first published in Leiden). Seems to me you can do nothing with it, that's copyright violation. Mithril (talk) 11:28, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
ok, I suppose you mean that the rule of the shorter term is not followed by the Dutch. Shyamal (talk) 15:03, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
No, I don't. I just mean the Commons asks for both US license (e.g., {{PD-1923}}) and work's origin country license. See the text of {{PD-1923}}: “If the work is not a U.S. work, the file must have an additional copyright tag indicating the copyright status in the source country.”.

File:ThrushUpperWing.jpg text[edit]

The image is very nice, but the text is so small as to be virtually illegible. Would you consider redoing the image with larger text? Thanks! KDS4444 (talk) 19:20, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

File:Pair mantodea Bangalore.jpg[edit]

You are claiming to be the author of this (and several other) image on Commons for which you do not provide any EXIF data and have only a small image size. This makes me wonder if you yourself actually took the picture. If so, would you consider providing appropriate EXIF data and a larger image size? If not, would you care to explain your decision? If you are not the original author, then the image needs to have the correct author and source added or it will be at risk of being nominated for deletion. Thanks!! KDS4444 (talk) 19:25, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

EXIF is not a must on Commons. In my case, the lack of EXIF is due to the lack of a good CR2/RW2 raw to JPG converter. Shyamal (talk) 05:43, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Chrysomelid wynaad.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

Pictures from the British Library flickr collection.[edit]

It looks like you've been finding some great images in the BL Flickr collection. Many thanks for taking the time to look through it, and for finding such good things!

One little request: when you're uploading such images, could you use the ingestion template described here, which sets up some appropriate image templates and categories).

You can see the effect on the description pages for c:Category:Mysore: a gazetteer compiled for Government. One advantage is that it puts the images in page-number order in the category (and also if they are used in another category, like c:Category:Maps of Mysore District.

It also re-writes the description pages to use an {{Artwork}} template, with a link back to the original image on Flickr, and with a facility also to add a link to the BL georeferenced version of the map, once it becomes available; and it adds a source category, to make it easy to find the descriptions of all images uploaded from the BL stream.

So if you could copy and use this script for your recent uploads from the BL collection, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks, Jheald (talk) 22:55, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. Will try with future uploads. Shyamal (talk) 08:49, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Wrong license for File:Dictyopharidae WG.jpg[edit]

Hi there! I certainly hope you haven't been dead for over 70 years: If you took the photo File:Dictyopharidae WG.jpg please update the license to a more appropriate one (e.g. CC or GFDL)). Cheers, and thanks for all you do! Animalparty (talk) 00:01, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
