Comment[edit]

When you upload an image from flickr, you MUST correct give the right flickr link to the picture. If not, the flickr review bot will say your image has "no source" and it could be deleted within 7 days. So, in your case, you gave the link after the flickrbot marked it and said this image has no source, but you didn't order a new {{flickrreview}} so that the flickrreview bot will mark it. (by removing the failed flickr review mark) That was what I did here . I even said "order a new flickrreview."

On cropping images, its Not a problem at all to upload cropped images from flickr to Commons. I've done it many times. If you crop an image, the cropped image file you uploaded will just fall into the "flickr images needing human review" category. So, an Admin or a trusted license reviewer will mark it later. You just must make sure that the flickr license is acceptable for Commons with no "non-Commercial" or "no-Derivative" use restrictions on the CC license. Your image above was CC BY SA Generic which is acceptable and I could have marked it....but I prefer if another reviewer marks the photo. The important license is the one at the flickr source. Here is one cropped image I uploaded...but as you can see from the original flickr source, I cropped the image and Admin Turelio marked it later. Mr. Twolan agreed to change the license from 'All Rights Reserved' to "CC BY SA Generic" for an article on this former Star Trek Voyager actor.

Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:18, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the complete answers, that's helpful.--Sphilbrick (talk) 02:42, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: No problem. I should add that another common flickr license that is acceptable to Commons is "CC BY Generic" (called 'Attribution Creative Commons' on flickr) like this flickr Source I uploaded the image below with Mr. Campana's permission after he changed the license from "All Rights Reserved":
  • File:Tutankhamun’s chest by John Campana.jpg

Now you know the two main acceptable and popular flickr licenses. There is a third one below--"no known copyright restrictions"--but its mainly given out by educational, government and state institutions. See this flickr source What it means is that the institution believes the image is out of copyright protection.

Good Luck uploading images from flickr, --Leoboudv (talk) 04:00, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the additional points. I just made arrangements last night with the photographer for additional photos, so do plan to add a few more. I see the two acceptable licenses, will probably be using the CC BY SA Generic in these cases. I will add a direct link to the Flickr image. I trust that the bot finds its way to the image by itself (or triggered by the upload) the first time, and the time to use {{flickrreview}} is if I make a mistake and need to have it show up again.--Sphilbrick (talk) 11:42, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
  • That's correct. The flickrreview is triggered at upload but if you make a mistake and it says "image not found" (likely because you didn't give a flickr link to the source image), then you have to type in a new {{flickrreview}} But if the bot says "human review needed" for cropped images then someone will come along and mark the image...as someone did for my uploaded photo of Robert Duncan McNeill. All you have to do is just wait in the second case. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:19, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks.--Sphilbrick (talk) 21:20, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

File:Exa-fae-05-1.jpg[edit]

Hey SP, I saw you added an OTRS insufficient tag to File:Exa-fae-05-1.jpg. I took a look at the OTRS filing, and it seemed clear enough that the image was being released under CC-by-sa-3.0 and GFDL. Just wondering what you felt was insufficient about the filing. Cheers! Huntster (t @ c) 01:48, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

The file name for which permission was supplied did not match the file name that had been uploaded. I sent back a query to tie down the loose ends. I see now they have followed up with confirmation, so I will change the tag.--Sphilbrick (talk) 12:38, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Aha, gotcha, thanks for the action. Huntster (t @ c) 23:26, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

you took credit for my Image[edit]

MILITARY SURPLUS.JPG Is my work it took a year to get the catologe alone. I have all the photos from that shot... Do you have any. NO caused may work. That's very sad

Andy2159 19:46, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

===PLAGIARIZED or STOLEN===

This is my work I can prove it because I have the originals and many photographs from that shoot.

I can prove this and I can also prove that the image you took it from is my image called Cw1850.pdf.

Please explain how you can get away with removing other peoples name from their work and changing the copyrights to include false and misleading information.

Can you explain why you did this? Are you ready to tell the truth about this?

AndyAndy2159 20:37, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

OTRS help[edit]

Thanks Sphilbrick! I appreciate your help. Drmies (talk) 19:30, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Hey Sphilbrick, I got a question for you. Can you figure out where File:Maradona at 2012 GCC Champions League final.JPG might come from? It's quite a stretch to assume that the photo was in fact taken by a user from Abu Dhabi who likes Nazi Germany. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 01:17, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
I haven't found it, but I did find something that lends credence to the possibility is is legitimate. I believe the photo at this site was taken the same day. (same cross, same empblems on shirt). That article discusses his departure from the Al Wasl club which is a UAE club, so he was in Abu Dhabi at the time of the photo on Commons.--Sphilbrick (talk) 20:19, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Two more data points, in opposite directions. Some recent additions from the editor are File:Abu Dhabi Municipality BAD HABITS FINES POSTER.JPG and File:Phone Booth UAE.JPG, both taken with an iPhone. In contrast, the Maradona photo was taken by a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, which is a popular, but not cheap camera, running close to 2 grand. Would someone with access to such a fine camera be using an iPhone to submit pictures? Well perhaps, because File:2012 GCC Champions League Final.JPG and File:Wooden Bucket of a well.JPG are both sourced to the same person, and both taken by a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. The first of those is taken at the same event that Maradonna attended, so I'm thinking it is quite plausible.--Sphilbrick (talk) 20:38, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

User:MarkMysoe[edit]

User:MarkMysoe is not the author of these photos: File:Kwasi Danquah III (autographs).jpg and File:Kwasi Danquah III (performing).jpg. He stole them from two differents facebook accounts just like he did many times in the past. There you go a recent example from English wikipedia:en:File:Tinchy Stryder & Javier (Chicharito) Hernandez.jpg. He was blocked in May 2012[1] on English wikipedia for persistent copyvio photo uploading under false self claim, now is doing the same on commons. Please look how he started his contribuion on commons[2], he disgustingly lied about the authorship of three photos, but I found out that these photos were a screencaps from a youtube vidoes and nominated them for speedy deletion. Please recheck all his contributions, I wouldn't be surprised if he created several e-mail accounts to send a permission to OTRS for photos he uploaded.--Oleola (talk) 13:53, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Aren't these permissions which were sent for the photos he uploaded suspicious for you? Just look at Ruff_Sqwad_Photo log. I found a real source of this file(myspace profile which is inactive from about three years[3]), and nominated this file for speedy on 28 May, but just a day later a permission came on OTRS, so quickly. As I said the profile is inactive since 2009, so he couldn't speak with a person who published this photo on myspace, therefore there is a question who sent this permission? The only answer that comes to mind is that User:MarkMysoe impersonated the author of a photo.--Oleola (talk) 14:29, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
He didn't claim to be the author of the photos, he claimed to be a representative of the owners. I'll contact him, and if the answers aren't satisfactory, will start looking at prior submissions as there are quite a few, and none have triggered issues until now.--Sphilbrick (talk) 00:20, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

OTRS[edit]

I placed an OTRS template on your userpage to avoid confusion. For a second, I wasn't sure if you were a member of the OTRS team. Keep up the good work. I saw you OTRS an image of Rajiv Gandhi. That was an excellent color photo as Commons has no real good colour photos of this late Indian PM. Kind Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 02:06, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

I guess the ticket doesn't apply to these 2 images, however:

Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 02:10, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the template to my user page. I probably should have known to do that myself. I will look at those two images shortly.--Sphilbrick (talk) 11:59, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

OTRS ticket question[edit]

I received an email from User:Davefoc about File:Chucko38crop.jpg. Is this covered by the same OTRS ticket as File:Chucko35.JPG? Thanks for your time. INeverCry 09:50, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, that permission statement covers both. My apologies if I missed adding the permission tag to the second image. If you can undelete it, I'll rectify it.--Sphilbrick (talk) 13:52, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
I've restored it. INeverCry 20:41, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

File:David Gandy with Mercedes Gullwing.jpg[edit]

I restored this and added the OTRS ticket. Can you check and make sure this image is covered by that ticket? Thanks for your time. INeverCry 00:32, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

No, I sent an email to the editor here. --Sphilbrick (talk) 13:56, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for helping me with this. I sent the OTRS permission form to David Gandy on 11 Dec 2012; there were 2 images attached to my original message. He immediately forwarded the permission back to me with both images still attached. I forwarded all of the above to "permissions-commons@wikimedia.org" on 11 Dec 2012. If you are unable to locate these in your Inbox, please let me know if I need to re-send or start over. Thanks,LauraLeeT (talk) 17:03, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
I found the email created by you, sent to Conor Clinch and forwarded to us. It has two attachments, one of which is a jpg, the other of which is an html attachment, which is just the email content itself. If the gullwing image was attached, it was not by the time it reached us.
It is not critical that the image be attached, however, the permissions statement referred to the two attached photos. If it had referred to the images by name, I could process it without the attachment, but I cannot process it without some indication that the permission relates to the gullwing image.
I have a suggestion, but I'll send it via email.--Sphilbrick (talk) 18:13, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

I have just responded to your email but think I should have responded here instead. Thank you for sending the permission form, however, it refers to the wrong image. Here's an abbreviated review of the three photos of David Gandy in question... On 11 Dec 2012, David Gandy provided permission to use his two photos: (a) Mercedes Gullwing and (b) Jaguar. On 18 Jan 2013, Conor Clinch provided permission to use his photo of David Gandy from London Fashion Week. Conor has no connection to the two photos of David with cars. Does that help? LauraLeeT (talk) 20:24, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

I think I've sorted it out. The correct permissions for the two images with vehicles is OTRS ticket 2012121110011092 --Sphilbrick (talk) 21:19, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Since you've been so helpful, I need your assistance on setting up a gallery. I've seen them for other wiki pages, but not sure who "approves" the set-up--or what the "next step" should be. Here is the link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/David_Gandy

I am not familiar with how galleries work, or even what the purpose is in Commons. I see the gallery option used in Wikipedia articles on may occasions. I'm not the biggest fan, I think an article ought to have a fair number of images, but I think it works best when they are interleaved into the article and the images are supportive of paragraphs of text.
That said, I can imagine their use would be appropriate in some cases, for example,t he literal case of a gallery. If we have an article about some gallery, it ought to follow the model I just described, but if we literally have dozens or hundreds of high quality images from a gallery, after using the best to complement the text, I can imagine that a number might be placed in a gallery below the main article. Similarly for an article about a beautiful location, or a concept such as sunsets, it might make sense to include a large handful of nice photos in a gallery at the bottom.
I use Commons extensively, but only as a repository for images that are to be used in Wikipedia articles.
In the case of the Gandy images, I think they would be best used one at a time in a well-written article.
I may not be the best person to ask, you could try at the Village Pump:
Commons:Village_pump
where you are more apt to find editors who work at Commons more regularly.--Sphilbrick (talk) 22:59, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your work on this. I've fixed up the David Gandy gallery and created the needed main category, Category:David Gandy. I've told Laura I'm available to help with this. INeverCry 01:06, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
Nice work. Glad we got this sorted out.--Sphilbrick (talk) 02:37, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Jo Becker at Harvard.jpg[edit]

You added the template to this file that says insufficient explicit permissions had been obtained from the image author (Martha Stewart, although probably not THE Martha Stewart) for its use on Wikipedia. I was the editor who uploaded it, after obtaining what I thought were adequate permissions from Ms. Stewart and Harvard for its use, and I was carbon-copied on a e-mail affadvavit that Wikimedia sent to Ms. Stewart, but if she has replied to that e-mail, I was not copied on her response. There are some questions of journalistic integrity (my own) that I I would like to see resolved by Wikipedia/Wikimedia. Thanks for your attention. - No intel here (talk) 18:51, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

I explained in my response that the permission statement didn't meet our requirements, and I filled out a statement that would meet our requirements. I haven't yet received a response, as far as I know.

File:David M Rosenthal on location in New York City.jpg[edit]

Hi Sphilbrick, I've corrected the author entry for this image, as the uploader, who also seems to be the depicted, stated that — contrary to his entry at upload — the image had been shot by Joe Gallacher, which is in accordance to the image credit at http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3910959360/nm1270033. --Túrelio (talk) 07:35, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree with your correction. I've noticed that the field "author" is potentially confusing. I guess we choose it because not everything is a photograph, but I wonder if we would be better served to have an information photo template, and information other template, where the first would use "photographer" and the second would use "artist" or "author".--Sphilbrick (talk) 14:21, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

File:Scott Allie.jpg[edit]

Hey Sphilbrick. I was wondering if you would object to me photshopping the image a tad to brighten it just a bit. If not, no problem.--Amadscientist (talk) 23:44, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

I started to say that I needed permission from the copyright holder, but I realize the licensing means that isn't true. In fact you don't need my permission, but I appreciate you asking. Go for it, and I will inform Scott.--Sphilbrick (talk) 00:16, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

File:NCAA Women's basketball Tournament invitations by state 2011.svg[edit]

This image needs to be corrected because it was based on an erroneous table in the underlying Wikipedia article. Until my edit there today, the underlying table incorrectly counted Saint Francis (PA) in New York instead of Pennsylvania, and UALR (Arkansas-Little Rock) in Alabama instead of Arkansas. NY & AL each need to be reduced by one; PA & AR each need to be increased by one. I'd do it myself, but I don't have an SVG editor. --RBBrittain (talk) 07:04, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I will fix it shortly.--Sphilbrick (talk) 12:30, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Working on it[edit]

File:Another Celia Sawyer 2013 Cool 10 Project.jpg I got an email from Ms. Sawyer's people and we are going to replace the image with one that is easier to licence. We will probably just overwrite and then have the first one deleted. That way we can use the same ticket number and file page. I hope this is ok.--Canoe1967 (talk) 15:53, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

In short, No. Will expand.--Sphilbrick (talk) 16:22, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
Overwriting an old image with a new image should be done only for minor changes. For example, in the message just above this one, an editor noted that four of the state colors needed to be updated.
If you look at the history of the image File:NCAA Women's basketball Tournament invitations by state 2011.svg, you can see that it is essentially the same image, with some minor tweaks. In the case of changes such as cropping, or fixing the colors, or other similar minor changes, it is fine to upload a new version. However, if the picture is a different picture, it should be uploaded as a new image. It needs a new permission statement, which is a pain, but not hard. The old permission statement referred to a specific photo, taken by a specific photographer, on a specific day. It cannot be used for another image.--Sphilbrick (talk) 16:28, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Either I or her people will upload a new one then. Should I post the file name to your talk page and/or the OTRS notice board? I don't know the easiest way for the system to handle it. A new image should be available within a day or so. I did mention that they can create an account but will assume that any pre-published images would still need OTRS. Perhaps a ticket number or template to cover all of them.--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:45, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
The noticeboard is for investigations of problems. Upload the image, make sure to use the standard language:
Here is a link to a sample permissions form:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Declaration_of_consent_for_all_enquiries
and send in to the address. We have a backlog, but well-formed statements get processed fairly quickly.
I uploaded File:Celia Sawyer 2012.jpg and replaced it in the article so the other one can be deleted any time. I sent an email with links and instructions. I also left notes on the file page in case the rights holder wants to fumble with it. They may create an account and upload more images we hope.--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:12, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
Now they have decided to go with the original File:Another Celia Sawyer 2013 Cool 10 Project.jpg An email should be in the works from the rights holder of that image. It has a ticket number so I will forward that as well.--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:32, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
The File:Another Celia Sawyer 2013 Cool 10 Project.jpg was deleted. I recieved an email from her people and they are still trying to get the correct licence through OTRS. I emailed links to Commons:Email templates/Consent, OTRS ticket number 2013031610006685, and a url to the deleted file. I do have a copy of the image and can upload it again if that is easier. I will also see if the deleting admin is willing to undelete it until we get OTRS sorted.--Canoe1967 (talk) 13:12, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
The file has been undeleted. I added back the OTRS template that was on it. I hope that is ok as that number may still be valid and is the one I used in the email to her people.--Canoe1967 (talk) 16:39, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
I added the permission template.--Sphilbrick (talk) 18:29, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I will let her people know and see if they wish to correct the date, place, etc.--Canoe1967 (talk) 18:49, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Image undeletion request[edit]

Can you take a quick look at User talk:INeverCry#Image undeletion request and let me know if the additional images listed by this user are ok to be restored? Thanks. INeverCry 18:03, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

File:P.Sheshadri.jpg[edit]

Hello! As you handled this OTRS, can you please go ahead and ask them to submit the OTRS for other images too? All images uploaded by this user are tagged for missing permission by me as they were previously published elsewhere. I guess they would give permission. I could go and write to them, but now that you have handled it already, its better to keep just one contact person. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 06:14, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm not clear on what you think I can do that you cannot do. I would suggest leaving a note on the uploader's talk page, but you can do that. At OTRS, we rarely initiate emails, and this isn't one of those rare examples, plus, I do not have any evidence that the email address associated with the one image I handled is the same as for the others. It may well be, but I do not wish to make that assumption. So if I were to handle it, I would leave a note on the talk page of the uploader, however, because there are 752 open requests, I'd prefer to spend my time processing requests we have, rather than chasing someone who hasn't sent one in. Sorry, that sounds cold, but some people have sent in request and have been waiting over a month, so that is my first priority.--Sphilbrick (talk) 02:20, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
Yeah... that sounds about right. Sorry for disturbing you. Have a nice day. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 03:49, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Photo names--ready to use?[edit]

Hi Stephen, regarding these two photos, they appear to still have their "pending permission" file names. I'm afraid if I use them now, the names will get changed and the links will stop working. Are they ready to be used?

David Gandy for GQ Japan by Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca (2009)-a substOP
David Gandy for GQ Japan by Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca (2009)-b substOP

Thanks for your help. LauraLeeT (talk) 01:51, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

You can go ahead and use them. While I agree that the file name doesn't match our best practices, I don't think the issues are serious enough that someone is likely to change them. More importantly, and I'm 99% certain, if you use one of those file names, and someone does change it, the system will update your link. It may be as a redirect, and there is a tiny chance the editor doing the rename will chose not to do a redirect, but that would be an error. --Sphilbrick (talk) 13:57, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

ID check[edit]

An IP at en:wp BLPN says that File:Kamie Ethridge Associate Head womens basketball Coach Kansas State.jpg is actually "ksu assistant head coach Kelly Moylan, not of Kami". Can you check the ID in any way? https://ksuhoops.com/women/staff.php --Canoe1967 (talk) 08:55, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Arggh, I think you are right. This is very disappointing. I did a little work on the Kamie Ethridge article, and had attempted to get a photo of her from the school. That failed, and by happenstance, I was going to be at an arena where KSU was playing. I didn't know what she looked like, so I approached a very vocal KSU fan, who turned out to be the mother of one of the assistants, and asked her. She pointed me to Kelly, and told me it was kamie. Who knows, maybe she mis-heard me. In any event, I agree it is incorrect. I've requested a rename.--Sphilbrick (talk) 14:08, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Sphilbrick, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

Hi, thanks for handling OTRS for images in Category:James Cleland Richardson statue, Chilliwack. Did they state which license they wish or is that still in the process? I want to crop one for an article and need a license type for it.--Canoe1967 (talk) 13:55, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I've been away from OTRS for a few days, and apparently rusty. Checking that the image license matches the permission statement is pretty basic, and normally part of the process. I was focusing on whether permission for a category, as opposed to a specific list of items was an issue, and blanked on checking the license. The permission statement was clear, and I have added it to all three.--Sphilbrick (talk) 14:09, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

The original permission looked adequate, but it did not use the standard language, and as I look closer, I see some wiggle room. The pd statement also raises serious questions.
I've written to the person providing the permission, and asked for clarification. If it is not satisfactory, or if I do not get an answer in a few days, I'll pull the OTRS. I hope there is a good explanation.--Sphilbrick (talk) 22:52, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Definitely 1986. I just looked at the metadata, and see
Date and time of digitizing 06:49, 19 January 2011
so presumably it was shot with film originally and digitized in 2011. That isn't a very informative entry for the date field, so I changed it to 1986. I do not know the exact day, but the event happened in April 1986, and they took the picture shortly thereafter, so it was some time in 1986.

Gilda Radner photo[edit]

Hello!

I have noticed that you have uploaded many photos of celebrities by using OTRS-permissions.

Maybe it is also possible to get a color photograph of en:Gilda Radner?

Kindest regards, Dorian

Most of the images I've uploaded, other than ones I've taken or arranged to get, are sent to Wikimedia unsolicited. I am simply processing them. I have no idea how to get a photo of Gilda Radner, although I suspect if you could reach her publicist, and ask nicely, they might provide one.
For example, I uploaded a photo of Mike Thibault today by writing to the PR department and asking.--Sphilbrick (talk) 20:37, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Needle Galaxy 4565.jpeg[edit]

Did you notice that a user uploaded a higher-resolution copy seven minutes before you added the OTRS tag? Considering that this was such a short period of time, it seems unlikely that the OTRS e-mail was sent before this version was uploaded. Does the permission apply to both resolutions or just to one of them? --Stefan4 (talk) 14:23, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

I did not notice that. I will follow up and ask.--Sphilbrick (talk) 14:41, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks so much[edit]

Very kind of you Sphilbrick. I am VERY grateful for all the work you have done re OTRS tickets, as suggested by Eugene Zelenko. Do I have to ask for a OTRS ticket everytime I upload the image of my artwork, even if I am the author both of the painting and of the photo ? Grazie mille, sie stato molto gentile :)--Aeron10 (talk) 20:26, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Two possibilities, one for certain and the other should work.
You do not need a separate email for each item. It is actually easier for us and you, to "bundle". If you upload a number at one time, you can list all in a single email. That aspect is for certain.
The second possibility is a bit less certain. I've inquired about what I call "blanket permission". For example, a permission statement that covers anything uploaded from a specific site owned by a photographer. I've gotten some feedback that such a process should work, but it hasn't been committed to policy, so I cannot say as firmly that it will work. I'm mulling over exactly how such a statement would read; while I have arranged one, those circumstances don't fit your situation.--Sphilbrick (talk) 21:27, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'm thinking of asking about your commitments to en.wp as an admin vs. your potential role as an admin here.

I restored the image desription page, please verify the license is the same as on the OTRS ticket. --Denniss (talk) 11:47, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, it is. I wondered why there was no description, and mentioned it to the uploader/permission provider, but looks like you took care of it for them.--Sphilbrick (talk) 12:46, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

OTRS tickets[edit]

I have an OTRS ticket that is in conflict with a ticket that you worked on over a year ago. I was hoping that you might help me sort this out. The first ticket (yours: #2012081610003591) asserts its from the musician and is a photo of the musician. The second ticket (mine: #2014041710014447) asserts that the original photo is fake and that we should have permission for a different photo (which I cannot find). Can you take a look?

I'll try to help sort it out but it looks like a mess. I'll add a note to your ticket. For obvious confidentiality reasons, I won't copy the text here, except to add my final line "Sorry, more questions than answers".--Sphilbrick (talk) 13:39, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't even know what to do with it. I have even more questions than you asked now. Somethings just don't add up. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 19:11, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
