flag of sweden colours ([edit]

can somone please change flag to the "21:21, 3 February 2009 version of this file" (current version is from 2010) per and also per earlier consensus (can be found on File_talk:Flag_of_Sweden.svg#How_were_the_colours_decided.3F) Enbionycaar (talk) 00:10, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

I am happy to temp unprotected the file if someone experienced with flags can confirm that this change is OK (Fry1989 for example). --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:50, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
i can ask AnonMoos Enbionycaar (talk) 17:25, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
the colours shall be exacly as per the flag in Enbionycaar (talk) 17:53, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
I would support using the colours set out by the Swedish Government. Fry1989 eh? 17:57, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

A dirty little secret is that flag colors are generally specified in official government documents using a device-independent color system (Pantone etc.), while computer RGB colors are inherently device-dependent, and these is no one single correct conversion between device-independent colors and device-dependent colors... AnonMoos (talk) 18:26, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

I would also support the colours by fry1989 they are exactly the same colours as in the first source but instead of interpreting them in some svg editor we must just copy and paste on yellow and blue boxes in Swedish Government, and AnonMoos points are irrelevant since if you live in sweden like me you will notice the physical flags flying all over sweden looks exactly like the government description Enbionycaar (talk) 18:58, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

can you update the flag now?[edit]

since fry1989 said it was ok as you required can you please update the flag of sweden now Enbionycaar (talk) 00:07, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Microsoft Surface 2 file[edit]

Greetings Steinsplitter! I've seen you've deleted File:Microsoft Surface 2 tablet computer.jpg under COM:COPYVIO. I've uploaded the image from Flickr which was licensed under a CC-BY-2.0, a compatible license with Wikimedia Commons. Best, --///EuroCarGT 14:10, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

It is a COM:DW of unfree content. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:17, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Alright, but I am allowed to upload images from Flickr if they have a compatible Creative Commons license per COM:F. May you please elaborate on the statement above. Thanks and best, --///EuroCarGT 15:53, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Pleas read COM:LL. Flickers uploads are not always 100% free. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:59, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Good read! Though wouldn't say that this was a copyrighted image, I did perform a Google Image Search and results came back as the original image. Si the photo is legit. Best, --///EuroCarGT 16:56, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Microsoft Products and the images in it are copyrighted. Go to COM:UNDEL. I see no need to undelete this file. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:59, 25 May 2014 (UTC)


please answer earlier thread Enbionycaar (talk) 15:28, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Done --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:57, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Deletion question[edit]

I accepted the permission statement for File:Mohit Malhotra.jpg (originally uploaded to, then transferred to Commons) which used the following license: "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5-India"

I made a note in the OTRS record that this license isn't worded exactly the same as "cc-by-2.5-in" but I assumed that "In" was short for "India" and assumed it was the same licensee.

According to:

they are the same.

I see that you deleted the file and linked to Commons:Licensing. Does this mean you think that the two licenses are different, or is there some other reason I missed?--Sphilbrick (talk) 16:09, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Ummn, This was a wrong deletion. Sorry. I don't have seen the OTRS template o_O. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:16, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
I'll restore, but I didn't want to do so without checking to see if I missed something. I'll go ahead and restore.--Sphilbrick (talk) 17:03, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
You beat me to it, thanks.--Sphilbrick (talk) 17:04, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks guys! Appreciate all of your efforts. (Raasta123 (talk) 21:24, 25 May 2014 (UTC))

Packaging copyright problems meet the criteria for speedy deletion[edit]

You asserted "Don't meet the criteria for speedy deletion, pleas nominate for deletion" for several dozen images tagged {{Copyvio}} that I would consider to be clear violations, meeting Commons:SPEEDY#File "Apparent copyright violation".

Killbeggan Whiskey.jpg
Jim Beam White Label.jpg

According to COM:PACKAGING, product packaging carrying original printed designs cannot be uploaded to Commons, even if "you personally own the physical object and even if you took the photograph yourself." The "limited exceptions" are

  1. Packaging which carries a printed design which is so insignificant as to be incidental.
  2. Packaging which carries only a printed design which is so simple as to be ineligible for copyright protection.
  3. Packaging which carries only a printed design which is old enough for the copyright to have expired.

This issue is serious enough that Category:Whisky_bottles, the category containing those images, has included this reminder for more than three years {{packaging}} Before I bring this issue to a wider audience I am hoping you will reconsider. Thanks. 18:09, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Pleas start a regular deletion request, Pleas see Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_in_Category:Whisky_bottles for example, some files was kept some time ago. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:17, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Soy novata!! Ayuda!!![edit]

Hola! Un gusto poder contactarme! Soy muy novata. No comprendo todavía cómo se usa Wikipedia. He subido algunas fotos de mi propiedad y creo que me la han borrado o eliminado. Estoy teniendo problemas porque tengo el acceso denegado en wiki porque dicen he vandalizado! No entiendo nada! Te pido ayuda!File:Luis Ángel Díaz 3.jpg has been marked as a possible copyright violation. Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content—that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. Traditional copyright law does not grant these freedoms, and unless noted otherwise, everything you find on the web is copyrighted and not permitted here. For details on what is acceptable, please read Commons:Licensing. You may find Commons:Copyright rules useful. You can ask questions about Commons policies in Commons:Help desk. The file you added has been deleted. If you believe that the deletion was not in accordance with policy, you may request undeletion. Wikimedia Commons takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. Te Agradezco de corazón si puedes darme una respuesta o puedes revisar mi caso.

Ramon Langa.jpg deleted[edit]

(I've rearranged the thread to ease the reading)

Hi there, In the source page you can read in Spanish "Puedes enviar la fotografía por email como postal, pulsando en Enviar foto." what means that can be redistributed. So, Why do you removed it?? Regards, Chanchus (talk) 15:57, 5 June 2014 (UTC).

Ansprache der Massenlöschungen auf englisch[edit]

Hallo Steinsplitter, ich werde die massenlöschung meiner Bilder auf der englischsprachigen Wikipediaseite Administrators' noticeboard ansprechen und den deutschen Text als obsolet kenzeichnen. Spricht etwas dagegen das Thema auf englisch anzusprechen oder muss dies zwingendermaßen auf deutsch erfolgenß Das Thema ist kein nationl deutsches Problem. Heinz-Josef Lücking (talk) 11:48, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

[TPS] Bitte frage dich vor einem Beitrag weniger "spricht etwas dagegen", sondern mehr "spricht etwas dafür". Und man muss schon arg an Verschwörungen glauben wenn man meint weiterer Krawall im AN führe zu einem anderen Ergebnis als dass du einfach Lizenzbestimmungen akzeptieren musst.    FDMS  4    12:16, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Moin! Entsperrung zur Diskussion moeglich? Schau mal hier: Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests#Many Files deleted 2014-05-31 Ich hab zwei neue Versionen seiner Lizenz gebastelt. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:02, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Besser nicht, er hat ganz klar eine Editwar mit anderen Benutzern geführt. Eine Diskussion entschuldigt keine Editwar. Zudem läuft die Sperre eh bald ab, waren/sind ja nur drei Tage. Übrigens: du hast eine Mail mit Details über den Benutzer. --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:04, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Danke Steiny! LG --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 15:05, 3 June 2014 (UTC)


Leider hast du weder auf meiner Benutzerdisk noch auf der Disk der Commons-Seite reagiert, sondern mich stumpf wegen Editwar gesperrt. In deiner Version ist es nämlich so, dass man ,wenn man die deutsche Seite [1] aufruft, a) einen unschönne Weiterleitunfshinweis oben links sieht, und b) amn die Seite nur mit dem Übersetzungstool bearbeiten kann, also keine KandidaIten nominieren, promoten oder ablehnen kann. In meiner Version war es so, dass man auf der deutschen Seite ganz normal die Kandidatenliste bearbeiten konnte, der obere Abschnitt mit den Regeln ist ja per Vorlage eingebunden (di emit dem Übersetzungszeug bearbeitet wrid). Soll nun wieder auf meine Version zurückgesetzt weren, damit es funktioniert? Mariofan13 (talk) 11:11, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Ich habe dich nicht gesperrt, war Yann. Bitte sprech das auf COM:TN an, ich sehe kein Problem mit dem Neuen per communety-consens genehmigten Tool. Und die Kandidaten befinden sich auf Commons:Quality_images_candidates/candidate_list. Ein "Kandidaten Bearbeiten" Link wäre technisch möglich. Soll ich so einen einbauen? lg --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:22, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Das mit.der Sperre sollte eh erledigt sein. Es geht nicht um.das Einbauen eines Links es geht darum, dass ich in anderen.Sprachversionen wie der englischen direkt auf der entspechenden Seite zu "Commons:Kandidaten für Qualitätsbilder" direkt den Kandidatenabschnitt bearbeiten kann ohne ihn gesondert aufrufen zu müssen. Auf der deutschen Seite wäre das in meiner Version möglich gewesen. In deiner Version, die derzeit aktuell ist, wird hingegen direkt auf die Vorlage für die Regeln zu Qualitätsbildern weitergeleitet, die aber klarwrweise nur per Übersetzungswrkzeug bearbeitet werden kann. Darum,und.weil ich keinen EW fortsetzen will, frage ich hier ob ich meine Version wiederherstellen soll (was an dieser falsch ist, hast du übrigens noch nicht erläutert) oder wie man das Problem.lösen soll.

Es gehz hier übrigens nicht darum das Übersetzungstool abzuschalten oder dass es selbst fehlerhaft sei.Mariofan13 (talk) 21:57, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Ist ein bug. Leider ist es technisch nicht möglich die [edit] links für andere Sprachen anzuzeigen, ich hoffe das wird in den nächsten Monaten behoben. Wenn die devs so weitermachen in dem Tempo kann das noch Jahre dauern. --Steinsplitter (talk) 22:02, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Bei der Seite gab es schon Probleme mit dem Templates, die Seite hats wirklich in sich *seufz*. --Steinsplitter (talk) 22:04, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Löschung Smiderkal-Bild[edit]

Kannst du mich über den genauen Lizenzmangel im Smiderkal-File, das du gelöscht hast, bitte informieren. Roland Smiderkal hat explizit die freie Verwendung mit folgenden Worten erlaubt: "Dieser Inhalt ist unter einer Creative Commons-Lizenz lizenziert. Darüberhinaus ist eine Nutzung in der Wikipedia zu den dortigen Lizenzbedingungen ausdrücklich erlaubt." Für mich ist nicht zu ergründen, wo da ein Mangel liegen könnte! Ich habe auch nirgends eine Frage oder eine Diskussion dazu gesehen, nur jetzt die Löschungsmitteilung erhalten! Warst du da nicht gerade etwas übereifrig? -- Gürbetaler (talk) 18:37, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Die Lizenz sagt "Eine kommerzielle Nutzung ist untersagt", somit kann das Bild nicht auf Commons bleiben (COM:L). Siehe auch Commons:Forum#CC_BY-SA_3.0_AT_ohne_kommerzielle_Nutzung.3F. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:50, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Nein, wenn Smiderkal sagt "darüberhinaus", dann gibt er für alle Inhalte, die auf Wikipedia transferiert werden, eine andere Lizenz. Er verlinkt [2]. Er gibt als zwei verschiedene Lizenzen: CC-NC-SA für Inhalte, die direkt bei ihm abgeholt werden und GNU Freie Dokumentationslizenz für Inhalte, die auf Wikipedia transferiert werden!-- Gürbetaler (talk) 22:35, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Klingt für mich sehr dubios und es bleibt vorerst wegen COM:PCP gelöscht biss Smiderkal eine Schriftliche Freigabeerklärung an COM:OTRS gesendet hat (Standardprozedere). --Steinsplitter (talk) 22:52, 5 June 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I just noticed with this edit that your bot removes spaces, but maybe that with a little twist it could also remove final commas, as well... ;-) Greetings :-) --g (talk) 23:02, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Looks like maybe it's not removing the rotation template after rotating? Beyond My Ken (talk) 12:19, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Moved to Talk:Main Page.Mono (how to reply) 02:07, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hi, let's talk about the buttons on the main page.

The change I made did a couple of things:

  • Fixed this layout problem
  • Added an intuitive contact us button. (Buttons are much better than links for demonstrating to new users that an action can be taken.)
  • Retained the upload button for logged in users

I was working on a way to only show the upload button to logged in users, meaning there would be 3 buttons at most visible at any time.

Does that sound like an acceptable solution to you?

Hi, There is a contact us link in the sidebar, i don't see the need to flood otrs with too much mail and i don't see the need to have two upload buttons on the mainpage. --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:01, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
There are 22 links in the sidebar and they all look the same, not counting language links. We could definitely replace the upload button with a contact us button. However, it makes sense to me to have a upload button in the 'Participating' section because that is the most obvious way to participate in Commons. —Mono (how to reply) 20:04, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
One upload button on the Main Page is imho enough (users are not blind) and no need for a contact us button, why a such button? --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:06, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
There is a need, it's very difficult to find that page among the 22 links in the sidebar. Plus, buttons are much better than links for demonstrating to new users that an action can be taken. —Mono (how to reply) 18:48, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Imho no need ;) I suggest you start a discussion on Talk:Main page. --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:03, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

File:Portada Dentro de la Ley.jpg DELETION[edit]

Dear Steinsplitter, I see that picture has been removed by not indicating the proper permissions, but I sent them an email (OTRS) with a Written by the author of the file that gives me full rights to their free play, as you can see in my other uploads release.

The author of the file is the son of the person who wrote the book (Concha Ramos) which has recently died. As heir has all rights to images I'm uploading to wikimedia commons and are being used for article

Please, I thank you not erase anything on article "Concha Ramos" as part of an investigation of his life and work and I have full rights to its use.

Please, could you undelete

Thank you very much.

RotateLink isn't used much, do we really need it on for everyone? (many people may not know to/how to use it... —Mono (how to reply) 00:43, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

RotateLink is used a lot of times every day, i have checked it. Not sure about the other twos. --Steinsplitter (talk) 00:44, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Just saw your comment. Maybe it is used a lot, but the statistics from when it wasn't default didn't look too large. We can keep it as default though. For the other two, ExtraTabs is a catch-all gadget but it has some layout problems and functionality still using the Toolserver, functionality is not necessary for everyone. Improved Upload Form is from pre-upload wizard days; upload wizard is used 93% of the time for non-batch uploads so that's unnecessary imo. —Mono (how to reply) 00:47, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Greetings Steinsplitter,

Miss-Sophie from the German Wikipedia noticed that the Media Viewer interface used "Webseiten" instead of "Websites" and that this was an incorrect translation. I went and made the change on translatewiki and then I noticed that you had changed Websites to Webseiten. Seeing as how this is an issue between native German speakers, I am curious as to how to resolve this. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 02:24, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Webseiten would be correct Denglish. Websites is used a lot in German as well. The correct term would be Netzseiten or Internetseiten (Denglish again). As a DE-N I wouldn't mind either one. Oder um es mit Kurt zu sagen: Mir doch egal, Ferkel. Face-smile.svg --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:33, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Wikipedia (or rather Wikidata) translates w:de:Webseite with w:Web page and w:de:Website with w:Website, so I guess "Website" would be the better choice for MV (unless it is referring to single web pages or HTML documents) ...    FDMS  4    10:24, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Erich Brill-030.jpg[edit]

Servus, Steinsplitter. Du hast die Diskussion beendet, bevor ich auf den URAA-Kommentar antworten konnte. Im Template:Not-PD-US-URAA heißt es nämlich auch: "Images whose copyright was restored in the U.S. by the URAA are no longer accepted at Wikimedia Commons. New files should not be uploaded with this tag, or they will be deleted." Die Bilder von Brill sind neu, daher auch meine Löschantrag. Der Hinweis, daß URAA kein alleiniger Löschgrund ist, gilt anscheinend nur für bereits vorhandene Dateien. De728631 (talk) 18:59, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Hallo, Bitte lies mal Commons:Massive restoration of deleted images by the URAA, wo es genug Konsensus gibt die Dateien nicht zu löschen. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:01, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Ok, dann sollte man aber auch diesen Lizenzbaustein anpassen, wo es heisst, dass man keine neuen Dateien nach diesem Muster hochladen darf. Und auch {{PD-art}} verlangt ausdrücklich, dass das Werk im Ursprungsland und in den USA gemeinfrei ist. De728631 (talk) 19:07, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Ja, Aber das URAA Zeugs ist etwas Chaotisch - niemand weiß so recht wie. Biss man genaueres weiß wie vorgehen sollte nichts gelöscht werden. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:09, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Na gut, dann weiß ich bescheid für's nächste Mal. De728631 (talk) 19:15, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Graphic Recording Coding da Vinci[edit]

Hallo Steinsplitter! Darf ich fragen, wieso du das Graphic Recording von Coding da Vinci gelöscht hast? Liebe Grüße, Katja Ullrich (WMDE) (talk) 07:54, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Katja. Kollege Steinsplitter scheint gerade nicht hier zu sein, also mische ich mich mal ein. Sowohl Photograph als auch Zeichner sind Julian Kücklich, @playability, richtig? Der Upload wurde aber von Nina Schuiki durchgeführt. Da das Urheberrecht bekanntlich nur dem Urheber zusteht und wir davon ausgehen, dass dieser auch die Nutzungsrechte inne hat, würden wir bitten die Zustimmung des Urhebers, wie gefordert, an unser Support-Team zu senden, so dass sie dort archiviert werden kann oder Julian Kücklich, @playability könnte es mit Hilfe a) eines evtl. vorhandenen Commons Benutzerkontos oder b) auf einer evtl. vorhandenen persönlichen, öffentlich zugänglichen Website bestätigen, dass er mit der Lizenzierung so einverstanden ist. Sollte das eine Auftragsarbeit o.ä. sein, die vertraglich geregelt war, erbitten wir ebenfalls eine Kopie der relevanten Bestandteile an unser Support-Team. Ich habe die Datei wiederhergestellt. Leider ist das alles sehr bürokratisch auf Commons, aber bei Bildrechten hatten wir schon so oft Schiffbruch erlitten und der ist immer ziemlich teuer. Auch kommt es häufig vor, dass Autoren meinen eine CC-Lizenz gelte nur für Wikipedia o.ä., so dass wir hier immer auf Nummer sicher gehen. Liebe Grüße nach Berlin -- Rillke(q?) 09:51, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Rillke! Danke für die Antwort. Du hast Recht, es handelt sich hier tatsächlich um eine Auftragsarbeit, über die ich sicher von unserem Veranstaltungspartner auch eine Aufzeichnung einholen kann. Was das Foto angeht: Nina Schuiki ist eine Mitarbeiterin von Wikimedia Deutschland, sie hat das Poster abfotografiert und hochgeladen. Julian Kücklich wurde allerdings als Urheber genannt, weil das reine, detailgetreue Foto m.M. keine Schöpfungshöhe hat. Liebe Grüße, Katja Ullrich (WMDE) (talk) 13:46, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Rillke hat schon alles gesagt :) (Rillke: Danke für's Antworten, sehr nett von dir). --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:24, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Katja, es wäre super, wenn Du vom Veranstaltungspartner eine Aufzeichnung einholen könntest. Ob Repro-Fotos tatsächlich keine Schöpfungshöhe haben und daher urheberrechtlich nicht geschützt sind, können die Juristen entscheiden :) Ich habe mal vermerkt, dass Nina das Foto gemacht hat. Vielen Dank, auch fürs Nachfragen. -- Rillke(q?) 12:31, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Rillke und Steinsplitter! Wie mir eben auffiel, ist mitten im Bild in rot auch die Lizenz vom Urheber vermerkt worden. Wie praktisch. Ich hoffe, das genügt als Nachweis. ;) Bei der Fotografin mache ich mir keine Sorgen, sie hat es ja immerhin selbst hochgeladen. Vielen Dank für Eure Hinweise, Katja Ullrich (WMDE) (talk) 11:04, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Ich bin damit zufrieden. Wie meine Kollegen das sehen, weiß ich nicht, denn a) könnte es "zufällig" dort vermerkt sein, quasi als inhaltlicher Bestandteil b) die genaue Versionsnummer der Lizenz fehlt. -- Rillke(q?) 14:21, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Messina (Hauptaccount) legt auch keinen SUL an weil er dann wegen Crosswiki abuse Global gesperrt werden könnte. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:55, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Ja, nicht nur nicht blöd, sondern da wird ein Aufwand betrieben. Du musst einen Account suchen, der Anno dazumal erstellt wurde, und seit irgendwann 2008/2009 oder offensichtlich so nicht mehr editierte (der Edit auf der grusinischen wiki fällt etwas aus dem Rahmen, war wohl nicht Messina). Der ist dann nicht "sulisiert", wie es aussieht, und die Software erlaubt die Erstellung eines Kontos auf einem weiteren Projekt (ich dachte, es geht nicht, aber wohl doch). Ich nehme an, wenn man mit dem Account jetzt auf dewiki editieren würde, könnte man es ohne CU auch nicht nachweisen. -jkb- (talk) 15:35, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing this: User:Steinsplitter/wikitechml

I don't know much about the technical issues, but I do know that the plans presented last month, for an Upload Wizard update from the Multimedia Team at WMF, seem to ignore the main concerns most often expressed about the tool:

I'm concerned about this -- please let me know if you'd like to discuss what can be done. -Pete F (talk) 01:39, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

@Pete F: If I may add my 2 rupees: I agree with Steinsplitter that there are a lot issues with the UploadWizard which remain unresolved for ages. Many users complain of uploads failed and other problems. See Commons:Upload Wizard feedback‎. This marketing document gives very little information about addressing these issues. Personally, I almost never use the UW. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:15, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
@Yann: Yes, it sounds like we all share more or less the same concerns. I've been watching Commons:UploadWizard feedback fill up and get archived, with virtually no discussion or acknowledgment, for many months. -Pete F (talk) 06:37, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I have written a lot of Mails to WMF, some weeks (moths) ago Fabrice has mailed to me that the Multimedia Team is planning to improve Upload Wirzard. This is a first step. Swift (the Media Storage) Server is broken and need to be fixed, there are a lot of higprio unresolved bugs open since months. --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:58, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Steinsplitter,

you deleted it before answering my opinion on it. Why ? There's nothing remarkable on that screen. Regards --KarleHorn (talk) 20:06, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi! The screen looks copyrighted. Feel free to request undeletion on COM:UNDEL --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:21, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Steinsplitter, das war kein "deletion war". Ich bin einfach in die Routine aus der Zeit zurückgefallen, als es noch "erlaubt" war, Redirects zu löschen – weil ich die Seite User:Leit/Löschkandidaten nicht aufgeräumt hatte. Das hätte natürlich nicht passieren sollen. Keineswegs plane ich, über dieses verhältnismäßig unbedeutende Thema Streitereien anzufangen. Dazu bin ich auf Commons admin-mäßig zu wenig aktiv bzw. weitgehend auf einfache Aufräumarbeiten ohne Nutzung irgendwelcher Entscheidungsspielräume beschränkt. Beste Grüße--Leit (talk) 20:50, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Hallo, Kein Problem also. Ich dachte du hast den redirect absichtlich erneut gelöscht, weil das Gespräch auf deiner Talkpage klang nicht so als ob du einsehen würdest. Dann ist ja alles super. LG --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:56, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Ich hatte einfach nicht mitbekommen, dass es der neue Konsens auf Commons ist, Weiterleitungen wegen der off-Commons-Nutzung bestehen zu lassen – mit der vage definierten Ausnahme, die Datei sei unmittelbar (eine Stunde, ein Tag?) nach ihrem Upload verschoben worden. Nicht zuletzt, weil dies weiterhin als Löschgrund angegeben ist, den man als Admin standardmäßig auswählen kann. Gruß--Leit (talk) 21:02, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Radrennbahn Schöneberg 2005[edit]

Für das File:Radrennbahn Schöneberg 2005.jpg lag mir eine Genehmigung des Fotografen per E-Mail vor. Leider weiß ich nicht mehr, wer das war. Könntest Du mir bitte noch mal den Namen des Fotografen zugänglich machen, damit ich versuchen kann, ihn zu erreichen? Vielen Dank !--Uwca (talk) 04:11, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
