Hi Sterkebak,

would you please start to read user pages before writing pointless requests for deletion? And please consider the possibility that there are people out there who actually lived in 1965 and were owning a camera. -- 16:14, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Every photo over the map comes from commons. What is the problem? --Ángel Luis Alfaro 19:25, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Even when using a photo from commons, you should refer to the original picture and picture owner, otherwise you are violating copyright. These are not your own pictures, but you are using them and all should be traceable. Thank you! Groucho M 20:33, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Hola Ángel, please see my comments at the deletion request. Cheers, NielsF ? (en, nl, fr, it) 23:10, 21 May 2008 (UTC) (sorry Sterkebak, was voeballuh kijken, dus zag je verzoekje wat laat)


Where was the photo Mack.jpg taken? What city? Thanks. ~ WikiDon 03:46, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

the foto is taken in Tilburg a city in the netherlands. The truck is owned by the famelie Notenboom. En will only be use at shows. Sterkebaktalk 04:56, 12 June 2008 (UTC)


Hello Sterkebak, will sound a little stupid, but what is the violation of copyright? In any event, if it exists, no problem, I seek another image and submit. Greetings from Chile! Albomaster (talk) 20:27, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi, The content on the site's is protected en the site has the rights to use the pic. You have to have premission by email that we can use the pic. Greetings from Holland. Sterkebaktalk 21:30, 5 July 2008 (UTC) i am sorry but my english is not so good

Fair use on commons

Hi, if you see a fair use image, please don't nominate for deletion, use {{speedydelete}} instead. Thanks. -mattbuck (Talk) 01:40, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, i didn't now that. I will use it now on. Sterkebaktalk 05:04, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Why did you nominate this image for deletion? What's the problem with the source? It says: "Extracted from Image:LA2-Blitz-0189.jpg".--qwertyytrewqqwerty (talk) 18:42, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

see the image. i fix it. Sterkebaktalk 20:31, 1 September 2008 (UTC)


You made a mistake when uploading this image: you suggested I was the "original uploader at nl-wiki", while it's easy to see that I'm not: User:Koektrommel is. Please correct this error. Thank you. - Erik Baas (talk) 20:42, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Koektrommel heeft enkel online gezet. Jij hebt de afbeelding bewerkt. Met enkel online zetten van een afbeelding hoef je niet vermeld te worden. Aangezien je ook geen rechten heb. Voel je vrij het aan te passen. Ik doe het zeker niet. Sterkebaktalk 21:04, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Flickr images

Hi. As a result of your request at Commons talk:Flickr images/reviewers, I have added you to the reviewers list. Please see the instructions at Commons:Flickr images/reviewers and add {{user trusted}} to your userpage. You can ask me if you need any help. Cheers, Giggy (talk) 09:58, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Puzzling category

Why this Category:The falcons Castle, which has an insufficient name, omly one image in the category and redundancy of categories. May-be you intended to rename "Image:The falcons fort" into "Image:The falcons castle", but there is a procedure for that. If you really need this category, a better name should have been Category:Falcons castle at Valkenburg and redundant categories should have been removed from the image page. If not so, better rename the image and suppres the category. Greetings Havang(nl) (talk) 10:36, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

I am from the netherlands so i use the dutch name for the image. The other one was in english so i used that name for the cat. I can rename the cat but al category's are in english and not in dutch. Sterkebaktalk 11:26, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
Maar "The falcons fort" is een engelse naam; en is hier een cat nodig voor die ene foto; en zo ja, dan moet de naam onderscheiden van andere falcons castles en als je die falcons castels in een cat wilt hebben, moet het meervoud zijn. Het is een peanutkwestie, maar ja, je leert ervan voor de toekomst, Sterke Bak. Groeten Havang(nl) (talk) 11:58, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Bedankt voor je nederlandse uitleg. Hoe zal ik de cat dan noemen? Castle Valkenburg? Gr Sterkebaktalk 12:34, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Category:Castle Valkenburg komt goed overeen met nl:Kasteel Valkenburg. Die categorie geef je de categorieën die onder Image:RuineValkenburg.jpg staan; daarna geef je de individuele foto's 0File:.... alleen deze category:Castle Valkenburg. Je kunt met catscan (zie menu bovenaan de category-pagina)[1]

daarna controleren of er afwijkingen in de categorisering zijn. Als je klaar bent, even een signaal en ik verwijder The Falcon Castle. Havang(nl) (talk) 13:13, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Category redirects

Hi, it might interest you that for category redirects that have not be changed the last 7 days, a bot is doing the moving job one or twice per day. --Foroa (talk) 17:19, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Kastelen per provincie

Hoi, SterkeBak, ik zie dat je de kasteelfotos verder rangschikt per provincie. Als je deze lijst nl:Lijst van kastelen in Nederland op een tweede tabblad opent, en met de muis langs de blauwe kastelen en bij rode kastelen langs de blausew plaatsnamen gaat, kun je snel zien of er afbeeldingen er zijn, die moeten dan op commons te vinden zijn; je zult zien: het zijn er meer dan in de commonscategorie Castles of the Netherlands staan. Veel plezier. Havang(nl) (talk) 12:28, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Ik ga even kijken :) Sterkebaktalk 13:30, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Ik heb er gedaan t/m Friesland. De rest doe ik later. Nu wel weer genoeg kastelen gezien :) Sterkebaktalk 13:34, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Mooi werk voor een regenachtige dag. Ik was in het zuiden begonnen, ben blij dat je ook een deel doet. Groeten, Havang(nl) (talk) 14:50, 12 September 2008 (UTC)


I got an email with this as an address to visit. I think it is about an image I uploaded to Wiki Commons: Gallerygirl Which i wholly own, created and it is of ads I created for Fvlcrvm Gallery, which is photos of my wife, who owned the gallery at the time. I hope this clears up any confusion. 19:30, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi, The images was made of ads. The maker of the ads has the rights for it. It's not alloud to collect ads and put it under one picture. It was also out of scope of the project. If i remember correct there where nude woman in the picture. Sterkebaktalk 19:42, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Can you please explain

this to me? Thanks, abf /talk to me/ 17:42, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Seals of Philippine LGUs are public domain in terms of Philippine copyright law. It doesn't matter if they are used under fair use in en:WP --Septembermorgen (talk) 17:45, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Hi, When i looked it up on En wikipedia. I saw this:
This is a logo of an organization, item, or event, and is protected by copyright and/or trademark. It is believed that the use of low-resolution images on the English-language Wikipedia, hosted on servers in the United States by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation, of logos for certain uses involving identification and critical commentary may qualify as fair use under United States copyright law. Any other uses of this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement. Certain commercial use of this image may also be trademark infringement. See Wikipedia:Non-free content and Wikipedia:Logos.
Because fairuse is not okey on wikimedia projects and commons i tag't it with Fair Use. Did i do something wrong? Sterkebaktalk 17:46, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
How can it be Fair use and Pd at the same time :S Sterkebaktalk 17:57, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
In terms of Philippine copyright law (see link in PD-Philippines-template) it it work of the government of the Philippines and therefore PD. It doesn't matter what en:WP says. --18:01, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Oke then i have learnd something. But on it's then also pd or am i wrong? Sterkebaktalk 18:09, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Grootvader en kleinzoon - Katwijk aan Zee crop.jpg

Hallo SterkeBak, je hebt recentelijk de afbeeling Image:Grootvader en kleinzoon - Katwijk aan Zee crop.jpg die op nl-wiki staat op Commons gezet. Bij het wegwerken van de lijst 'NuCommons' viel het me op dat deze afbeelding op nl-wiki een resolutie van 897 × 1.003 pixels heeft terwijl de versie die jij overgezet hebt een resolutie van 536 × 599 heeft. Voor elke verwijdering kijk ik steeds of de afbeelding wel klopt, de resolutie hetzelfde danwel beter is (dat laatste komt soms voor als het overgezet is vanaf andere dan nl-wiki), de licentie klopt en nog wat zaken. Dat is meestal vrij saai werk want dat gaat eigenlijk altijd wel goed als het met een tool overgezet is. Maar deze keer dus niet. Op zich is het heel goed werk wat je doet met het overzetten, maar blijkbaar kan het soms dus ook met zo'n tool toch nog niet helemaal goed lopen. Heb je enig idee waarom het deze keer verkeerd ging? - Robotje (talk) 16:22, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Ik gebruik de tool enkel om de samenvatting om te zetten. De afbeelding zelf sla ik via de computer op en zet het vervolgens met de hand weer op commons. Dus ik denk dat ik per ongeluk vergeten ben de grote versie op te slaan. Ik zal zo de betere versie even uploaden. Bedankt voor de melding! En mischien is het controleren saai werk maar je doet het toch goed dat blijkt hier wel uit. Groetjes, Sterkebaktalk 16:27, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
opgelost :) Sterkebaktalk 17:42, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Tell me what is wrong?? I have seen other company logos on yourpage. Why can't I upload a logo???

The rights of the logo are bij the company. There for you can't give rights away that you don't own. Please upload only own work or work that's on the internet with a free licence. Sterkebaktalk 18:19, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

I work for TARGIT and I am allowed to use the logo when pupliching TARGIT!

Okey, then please send the permission to Commons:OTRS. Then the problem is solved. Sterkebaktalk 18:32, 17 September 2008 (UTC)


Since you were the one who suggest it to be deleted, could you please remove this "deletion request" then? "The deletion request" shouldnt be here in the first place until OTRS read the mail and make a decision. By Wiki rules, you cant ask for the photo to be deleted since I ahve put up OTRS request banner before youa sk for deletion!- Jay (talk) 04:38, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

I was working on it but you already did it. Sterkebaktalk 04:45, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
Also i can still ask for deletion if the otrs template is on it. But i already sad sorry what else do you want? Sterkebaktalk 04:46, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Achaemenid & Buddha image

Dear Sir, Thank you for correctly reviewing this image: Image:Persia - Achaemenian Vessels.jpg I have 1 brief question as the person who requested a new flickr review: why does this German page still say that it has failed flickr review: [2]? The image is used in this German article on Ekbatana where the image says it has passed flickrreview: [3]. This seems a bit strange. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:28, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

  • One more thing. You also correctly approved this image: Image:Mahayanabuddha.jpg. But on Spanish Wikipedia sites like this: [4], it still says the Buddha image failed flickrreview. Its the same thing for Italian WP: [5] Are these problems temporary? Very strange indeed. --Leoboudv (talk) 07:27, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi, i don't know what went wrong on the local wiki's. I check the image and the licence checkt to be correct. After your message i checkt it again and the licence is still correct. So here on commons the are safe. The images are on the local wiki's already deleted so i can't check there. I hope it was a little error and it not happen many time's. I just want to say i like the image's. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 07:38, 18 September 2008 (UTC)


Have you heard about {{nsd}}? Ragards, abf /talk to me/ 16:44, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Give a break

Man, I have uploaded over 2000 images of my friends, who make photos for my wish and gave me permission to upload onto commons, so give a break ! pjahr @ 17:12, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi, since your not the author of the image but recieved permission to use the image we can't check of its okey. You must send permission to Commons:OTRS so it's able to check of you have the rights for the images. Sterkebaktalk 17:15, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Homo Homini w tvp Lublin 29.04.2008.JPG

I am simply uploading this on behalf of the author, who is the guy on the photo. Not sure what else do you need... --Zureks (talk) 18:35, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi there,
If i remember correct you have given a link to a website as source. Because of that i tagt the image for no permission. If you upload a image you don't have taken yourself you must send permission to use it under the licence to Commons:OTRS. Because then we can now for sure that the author who has the rights is fine by the idea everybody can use his image for free. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 05:16, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

What a relief - I worry about how little I ever learnt, and sometimes remember bits and pieces - I lived in Java (Indonesia) about 11 years ago for one year and needed to read lots of dutch language materials - but never really got to speaking it SatuSuro (talk) 12:58, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Will try - my father learnt dutch in his late 60's and early 70's - photo wise my Nikon Coolpix L5 with good macro has got the dot of death, so I am moving to a Pentax K200 which has average macro compared to the L5 - so here is hoping :) - thanks again SatuSuro (talk) 13:14, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Deletion Request

Hi. I saw this and this deletion requests. I can't understand perfectly english language, so I have to ask you what does "flickrwashing" meaning. The watermark on the photos is a way the photographer protect his photos from stealing, but in this case i asked him personally and he agreed to change the license. As you can se the photographer name is the same of the watermark. Elsewhere take a look at his gallery [6]. Anyway I really don't understand what is the problem.--Valerio79 (talk) 06:10, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

hi, i will try te explain flickrwashing. If a flickr user takes a picture from the internet en put it under a free licence on his flickr. The problem than the flickruser doesn't have the rights of the picture. I think the user on flickr has copyvio on his account. If you look at the photo you see a watermark from the author, that name doesn't match the name of the flickruser that is one reasson that i think the flickruser is not the author of the image. But not worry it is not your foult. All you did is oké zou did nothing wrong. Sterkebaktalk 07:09, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Flickr delays again?

Dear trusted user SterkeBak. Is the flickr bot having problems again today? Where I live in Canada, I know the flickr bot usually reviews images every day between 5:15-5:25 PM and then 6 hours later between 11:15-11:25 PM....however, no reviews has happened at either time. Its now 11:47 PM here and the flickbot has still not reviewed 6 images I downloaded thru flickr: [7] Its unfortunate because I cannot thank flickr owners for letting Commons use their photos until they have been passed. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:47, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

hi, if you give me links to your image's i will revieuw them. I will try to keep the category empty but i have to work today. 08:30, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
✓ Done. I Will try to do the rest of the category tonight but i am hoping at some help of other trusted user or the bot. Sterkebaktalk 09:32, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Thank You. Its incredible that out of all the trusted users, you are the only person, I know, who does flickr reviews. I wonder if Admins can do flickr reviews too sometimes. Cheers from Vancouver, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:45, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
    • Matbuck helpt with the backlog on sunday :) I have take a look on the category and it looks like to bot is working again. So i don't have to revieuw 260 images by hand a day. Cheers form Geldermalsen (The Netherlands) Sterkebaktalk 20:44, 23 September 2008 (UTC)


Dear SterkeBak, I don't any images on flickr to be reviewed at present...but I notice the bot has not run again. Yesterday night there were 20-25 images; today night, it is 73 images...and counting. By the way, isn't flickr review just a robot doing this job and nothing more. It is not a person reviewing pictures? Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 01:25, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi, the robot checks if the licence is the same as on commons. He also checks if the larges size is uploaded. It's not a person but he does good work. The bot has run 10 minutes tonight but has stopt after 14 image's. I will look if i have time tonight to review again. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 04:31, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Hi SterkeBak. Then flickrbot is indeed a robot. It seems to have had some major "teething" problems recently as the number of images waiting to be reviewed has now increased to 93. There was no problem in August with flickrbot when I uploaded images then. It is very strange. Perhaps the designer should be told of its recent troubles. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:55, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
I have told the designer about the troubles monday but he has not been online since. I am driving a truck today so i can't review till i am home. You can send a email to the commons list. Check http://lists.Wikimedia.Org if you register to the commons-l you can send a email. I think there are trusted users that should read it then. I will start reviewing tonight. Sterkebaktalk 08:18, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Circus Charlie


I found a message by you about a jpeg intitled level 5 about the game Circus Charlie. I have a question for you: I'm writing a page in italian about the video game Circus Charlie. I've done by me self a screen shot and I'like to use the copyrighted screen shot. How can I do about the selection of the licence in Wiki Common? I don't understand what to choose for it.

Can you help me? Now I have uploaded a new jpeg intitled circuscharlietitolo.jpg and I really would like to DON'T have problems. Many thaks and best regards.

hi, i think the problem can not be solved. If you take a screenshot of a computergame you don't get rights. All rights of the image stay's by the authors of the game. If you wan't to use the image the authors of the videogame must send permission to Commons:OTRS. I am affraid this was not the answer you where looking for :( cheers, Sterkebaktalk 21:33, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Equine Teeth mind map image

Hi you flagged the equine teeth image as missing permission information - I am the author, and also anything uploaded to NovaMind Connect is public as per , so either way it should be adequate permission. I was not aware that even if it is my own original work, I would still have to provide proof of permission to use it - seems a little strange...

Anyway, I have fixed that image, and will put that description in other images I upload. In the notification, it said that it might be deleted in 7 days - do I need to do anything else to stop it being deleted?

The site novamind doesn't say all contents are free to use, it doesn't say anything about a licence. So that's why i tag't it. Sterkebaktalk 12:26, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
The author of the image should give his full permission the use the image on commons because he has the rights. That permission can be send to Commons:OTRSSterkebaktalk 12:28, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

It is mentioned in the 7th paragraph of the TOS: "you accept and agree that the information you provide in your profile and the documents and comments and other material you post is publicly visible, and available for use by anyone who downloads or uses it.". Is that sufficient for you to accept?

NovaMind (talk) 12:47, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes but it does also says:
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service.
That's non commercional use. Sterkebaktalk 12:51, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm - not sure what you are getting at - there are two different things: The service i.e. NovaMind Connect, which you can't sell access to etc, and the content (documents, comments and other material that is posted), which is public. I see no conflict here - in fact even though they deal with two different things (the system and the content), they are in agreement in that you can't use the system for commercial purposes, and the contents are public. Does this help you understand, or am I missing something?

NovaMind (talk) 13:13, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

available for use by anyone who downloads or uses it. is not the same as giving permission that anybody can edit or use the image without attribution. Sterkebaktalk 13:19, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
Yes, you're missing that in order to use the content here, it must be free to copy, redistribute, modify, sell... That novamind connect contents are publicly visible is not really relevant. Platonides (talk) 13:21, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

OK, that was certainly the intent - is there some specific wording that would be required to clarify this intention?

NovaMind (talk) 13:27, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

To solve this you can email OTRS agreeing to the public domain license. Than you recieve a OTRS ticket and the image are than fine to stay. For information about emailing see Commons:OTRS. Sterkebaktalk 13:29, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

OK, thanks for that - I'll email them.

NovaMind (talk) 13:33, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

When you have send the email please put {{OTRS pending}} on all your image. Otherwise the maybe get nominated again or even deleted. Sterkebaktalk 13:36, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

OK. I will take note of the copyrights violation.

welcome to commons. If you have any quistons please tell me i will do my best to help!
try uploading only pictures that you have made your self. Or from flickr with the licence cc-by or cc-by-sa. Op other pictures that say that you can use them with a free licence. So that also means you can not upload: cd / dvd covers, screenshots from game's, posters and press foto's.

Hi, The images are copyrighted on that site, Because of that whe are not allouwd to use it on commons. Sorry. Sterkebaktalk 18:24, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Help evaluating copyright

This image was uploaded by a bot from Flickr with valid CC license. However the image clearly has a watermark denoting an "All rights reserved" icon. What should be done in this regard? Is it valid to use this image? LeaveSleaves (talk) 08:01, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi, i have taken a look on that flickr account. All image's has the same watermark and the name on the watermark match the name of the Flickr user. I think we can Assume Good Faight and i believe the flickr uploader is the maker. So it is no problem useing this image. But i think you must tag it with {{Watermark}}. There are people who will remove the watermark. Thanks for noticing the image. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 08:47, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I've tagged that image and couple of other images from same flickr user for watermark. Thanks for your advice. LeaveSleaves (talk) 11:03, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

cropped flickr images

Dear SterkeBak, I had to crop these 3 flickr images: Image:Seated Olmec Jaguar from San Lorenzo, Veracruz.jpg, Image:Olmec head from San Lorenzo, Veracruz2006.jpg and Image:Mayan stela from Mexico2005.jpg Will the flickr review bot reject them or does someone approve them? I am worried because this is the first time I have to crop an image. They are from the National Museum of Mexico City or the Metropolitan Museum of NY. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:16, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi, the flickr reviewbot can not check cropt images. Those image must be checkt by trusted users and are send to a other category. I check both images and the flickr licence checks out. Keep up the good work! Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 09:32, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Thank You for your help. It is greatly appreciated. Someone told me on Commons that flickrbots are not 'intelligent' compared to human Admins or trusted users. They cannot distinguish if a cropped image came from the original flickr picture. I guess this is correct then. With kind Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 10:44, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
No problem it is always nice to help Sterkebaktalk 11:18, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi, i don't think its a malfunction. The Flickrbot checkt of the largest size is on commons. When that isn't he upload a larger size image. The bot didn't tag the image as flickrreview not passed, or review by trusted user needed. I think the bot only check the size. And come back later for a review, but i am not sure you can best ask user:Bryan about the flickrreview and upload proces. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 21:19, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Thanks. I once contacted Admin Nilsfanon about the flicrreview process and he told me the flickrbot sometimes fails to pass images even though they are correctly licensed. I thought this was one example but I wasn't 100% sure. Have a nice sleep tonight in Holland--you have certainly earned it! Regards from Canada --Leoboudv (talk) 22:08, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Notice of namespace-rename "Image" -> "File"

Dear user, the MediaWiki developers recently announced that the "Image:" namespace is going to be renamed to "File:". "Image:" will remain an alias. The canonical namespace name wgCanonicalNamespace will change from "Image" to "File".

I noticed that you use wgCanonicalNamespace in either your monobook.js page or a JavaScript file in your userspace (check this list).

Please check and replace all occurrences of

wgCanonicalNamespace == "Image"


wgNamespaceNumber == 6

to ensure that your scripts keep working. Thanks! --Dschwen (talk) 18:41, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Datum foutjes bij overzetten

Hallo SterkeBak, bij de afbeeldingen

staat als datum 21 september 2008 terwijl in al die gevallen de datum van de originele afbeelding daarmee niet overeenkomt. Het lijkt erop dat er iets fout gaat met het importeren van de gegevens van het datum-veld en dat dat veld dan automatisch op 21 september wordt gezet. Graag even naar kijken. Groetjes, Robotje (talk) 11:46, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Ik weet niet precies wat er fout is gegaan, ik weet wel dat de toolserver beetje vaag deed die dag. Ik heb de datum's van de bovenstaande afbeeldingen hersteld. Ik controleer de beschrijving, licentie en auteur na het overzetten. De datum heb ik eigenlijk nooit zo opgelet. Maar dit is weer opgelost. Als de toolserver nu goed blijft werken gaan de volgende 100 weer allemaal goed.
Sterkebaktalk 20:42, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
Diezelfde dag waren er ook een of twee afbeeldingen die wel degelijk van 21 september 2008 waren. Dat is blijkbaar op een of andere manier blijven hangen. Bedankt voor het corrigeren. Ik had dat zelf ook kunnen doen, maar het leek me beter om het eerst even te melden zodat je meteen ziet dat er wat fout was gegaan. Kan gebeuren natuurlijk en mijn melding is dan ook bedoeld om je op dat probleem te wijzen zodat je ervan weet en er mogelijk wat aan kunt doen om het in de toekomst te voorkomen. Daarom is het ook goed als er zo af en toe ook eens iemand anders naar kijkt. Verder nog gefeliciteerd met je 'promotie' tot moderator (admin) op Commons. - Robotje (talk) 07:37, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
Dankzij het melden blijf ik ook weer scherp. Ik ga nu ook op de datum letten :O. En bedankt voor de felicitatie. Sterkebaktalk 17:14, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Conditional Adminship

You have been granted conditional access based on This decision. At the end of 60 days (December 6, 2008 at 16:42 UTC) if the conditions for revocation have not been met, you will retain this admin status as would a normal administrator.

I will congratulate you at that time. Bastique demandez 16:58, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

I will too. For now I will caution you to take it slow, ask questions if you are confused, work extra hard to secure consensus and communicate clearly, and if you are at all unsure, ask the community for input and guidance. Best wishes. ++Lar: t/c 17:32, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Ik zag dat jij VGchartz logo had verwijderd. Mag ik je erop attenderen dat deze wel op de engelse wikipedia stond? --Mezelf14 (talk) 05:49, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Hoi, als ik op commons een afbeelding verwijderd en hij word wel gebruikt dan komt er na 15 minuten een bot langs om globaal de afbeelding te verwijderen uit artikelen. Het logo mag gebruikt worden op de engelse wiki want de Engelse wiki staat het gebruik van fair use toe, commons echter niet. Als ze fair use afbeeldingen willen gebruiken, dan moeten ze op de Engelse wiki uploaden. Maar bedankt voor de melding dat de afbeelding nog ergens gebruikt werd. :-) Sterkebaktalk 08:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for deleting the broken image. But, sorry, do you know what happened with it ? I can't understand. On the page of discussion of Herby, you tell me to « try again with the right version », but on my computer this version of the photograph is right, it's the uploading which was wrong.

You just deleted the picture VCH and HCH.jpg which I uploaded. The reason you gave was: Unfree Flickr license: all rights reserved. The picture has a cc-by-sa-2.0. Can you explain this to me. --Lamilli (talk) 16:03, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

This morning check it.. All rights reseverd. This midday i checkt it. Still all rights reserved. If you are sure that the licence has been changed i am willing to check again. But checkt twice. Twice all right reserverd. Sterkebaktalk 16:22, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Collega MBisanz also marked it als All rights reserverd. I know for sure i revieuwed it correct Twice. I also made a DR for it. I believe the image is out of scope. Sterkebaktalk 16:50, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, that's strange indeed, because I checked it yesterday, checked it this noon and checked it right know. The result is always the same: valid CC-license. So I don't know what you've done wrong, but you might want to check it again. And: no - it's not out of scope. It was in use in the German Wikipedia and even if that wasn't the case, it still illustrates a certain kind of piercing. --Lamilli (talk)

I suspect this user does not speak English as most text edits are in Hungarian. At Image:Kotlosphönix.jpg he listed the source as "Saját" and the description as "kotlós" twice, once using the Hungarian template and once using the English template. Both the description and the source would appear to be proper in Hungarian.--User:Doug(talk contribs) 02:52, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi, that is possible but on all his images he gives a other source many of them has the source Wikipedia or the source Flickr or things like that. So i thought this would be a other site or something like that. It is my foult that i didn't look futher but because all the other image source is the reasson i tag this also. Please note that all images where also tagt with {{Flickrreview}} Sterkebaktalk 04:10, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah I saw a lot had Wikipedia which was strange, I couldn't find them on en-Wiki but they seemed to be used on hu-wiki in their commons versions on articles by the uploader. I just wondered if in the interests of AGF we should try to find someone who could communicate with the uploader in Hungarian. He may have just put {{flickrreview}} on there because he didn't know what he was doing (copying someone else perhaps?), as none of his images appear to be on Flckr as far as I have found, though I certainly haven't searched for them all and pictures of chickens are pretty common there.--User:Doug(talk contribs) 12:29, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
i will try to look for a person that can communicate with him. If i can't find somebody i / whe can ask someone on there local wiki. Now that we know the language whe can ask some for help. I ask somebody but he didn't know via language. Or do you know somebody that can help? Sterkebaktalk 12:37, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Why isn't this a copyvio? The clock is not in the Public Domain and we don't know the source of the number displayed (it's certainly not provided by the US Treasury). If I were to copy the actual clock and make one just like it, that would probably be a copyvio so why wouldn't the image? Just curious what your thought process was before I nominate it, not trying to sharp shoot you.--User:Doug(talk contribs) 03:04, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Hoi, aangezien ik niet meer zo heel actief ben op de Nederlandse wikipedia kan ik daar niet echt op antwoorden. Ik denk dat je het best even gebruiker Advance kan aanspreken over hoe en waarom. Groetjes, Sterkebaktalk 22:13, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Hebben jullie dan totaal geen verstand!?

Hoe halen jullie het in jullie hoofd, om Psyclone en Mario Galaxy te verwijderen terwijl ze WEL op de engelse pagina staan!?

Graag een hele goede uitleg.

Een beetje dimmen met zo'n toon kom je nergens. Op de Engelse wikipedia kennen ze fair use waardoor daar cd / game / dvd hoesjes kunnen worden gebruikt bij artikelen. Op commons is fair use niet toegestaan en je hoesjes zullen daarom ook zo snel als mogelijk worden verwijderd. Groet, Sterkebaktalk 10:38, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Dan gaan ze mooi op de Nederlandse als ze daar wel mogen. Maar wat betreft de Psyclone? Die staat daar wel gewoon. Ook bij de Shockwave, ik heb daar alle informatie geplaatst wat ik kan, wat moet erbij? --Mezelf14 (talk) 14:27, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

PS: Sorry voor de toon, ik word er alleen gek van als er telkens dingen worden verwijderd, die wel op de engelse Wikipedia staan. --Mezelf14 (talk) 14:27, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Op de Nederlandse wiki mogen ze ook niet. Alleen de Engelse wiki staat fair use toe. Sorry, Sterkebaktalk 14:30, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Mag Psyclone wel? Want ik zag die volgensmij ook op de Duitse of Franse staan --Mezelf14 (talk) 14:38, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Verzoek arbcom

Hoi SterkeBak,

Allereerst bedankt voor je mail. Mijn gedrag op Wikipedia van de laatste tijd heeft een reden: Ik ben bepaalde mensen op Wikipedia meer dan spuugzat. Ik zou er niet eens meer terug willen. Hoe de laatste tijd met Tjako is omgegaan deed mij de druppel overlopen. Wat mij betreft dien je een verzoek in tot blokkade van onbepaalde tijd. Misschien is dit de beste oplossing. Ik hoop buiten Wikipedia om, dat wij op een positieve manier kunnen samenwerken. Wellicht hier op Commons. Maar met alle respect: Jouw gedrag op Wikisage zou je ook trollgedrag kunnen noemen, dus heilig zijn we allebei niet. Misschien kun je je inleven in mij?


MarkMu (talk) 12:40, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

ik wacht nog steeds op bewijs van de hackpoging aangezien die er niet is. Ik heb de hoofdpagina verplaatst ja. Maar meer ook niet. Dus je kan mijn gedrag zeer zeker niet met troll gedrag vergelijken. Sterkebaktalk 12:48, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Mijn gedrag kun je ook niet met een troll vergelijken. Jij kunt mijn gedrag vergelijken met een wanhopige gebruiker die naar rechtvaardigheid streeft. Die rechtvaardigheid is ver te zoeken op Wikipedia. En daardoor schieten gebruikers (waaronder ik) soms te ver door. Ik wil best toegeven dat mijn gedrag te ver is gegaan en daarom snap ik dat je een herzieningsverzoek wilt indienen bij de arbcom. Hier heb ik alle respect voor. Groet, MarkMu (talk) 14:00, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Wanhopig is mischien het goede woord indien je mensen uitscheld. Het is mischien het beste om Wikipedia te vergeten, het uitschelden van gerespecteerde gebruikers via proxys heeft echt geen enkele zin en kan alleen maar tegen je werken. Sterkebaktalk 16:38, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Je hebt gelijk dat ik Wikipedia het beste kan vergeten. Ik zal me op Wikisage gaan richten en misschien over een tijdje op Wikicommons, WikiWoordenboek e.d. Groet, MarkMu (talk) 17:53, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
P.S. Deins er niet voor terug om contact met me op te nemen. Je bent altijd welkom. Zou je me willen mailen als het verzoek bij de arbcom is ingediend? Ik zal proberen Wikipedia helemaal niet meer te bezoeken, dus ook Wikipedia:Arbitragecommissie/Zaken niet. MarkMu (talk) 17:57, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Own work

Oef, foutje. Ik gebruik de laatste tijd Commonist voor het uploaden van foto's en dat voegt zelf de directory toe van de plaats van de foto op mijn computer. Ik zie nu door je aanpassing dat ik gewoon Own work had moeten invullen. Nu heb ik nogal wat plaatjes geschoten voor Commons, dat is dus eigenlijk steeds verkeerd gegaan. Is er een simpele manier om dat te herstellen, via een bot bewerking of zo, of moet ik dat op de hand gaan doen? --Stunteltje (talk) 20:51, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Het is opzich niet zo belangrijk dat het ineens aangepast moet worden. Het is enkel voor het gezicht mooier.

I uploaded a few images (1, 2, 3 and five others) from this flickr user on October 22 and they were all cleared under cc-by-sa.

Hi i have tagt the images with {{Flickr-change-of-license}}. If the licence change on flickr in doesn't mean all people using the image must change the licence also. Once given a free licence all people can use it under that licence. If change later all people who use the image after the change must use the new licence.

Image removed


This morning I received a message that an image I uploaded last night was removed. The image was titled melissa8x10.jpg and the reason given was "fair use: dvd cover". Variations of this image have been used for promotional purposes, but this image was taken by me and created on my computer. I wish to submit my work and have full copyright on the image. I run the company called "ChickFight", which owns these images. Please undo deletion. Thanks!

Hi, If the company has the rights of the images you have to send a email to OTRS. If you say in that email that you are the author of the picture and that you give it free under a free licence. You will get a answer with a ticketnumber. The people who handle the email will place the image back if it al is oke. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 15:42, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

  • via 'Commonist' en bulk: Permission=Own work, copyleft: Multi-license with GFDL and Creative Commons CC-BY-SA-2.5 and older versions (2.0 and 1.0)

en dan verschijnt ook nog: orphan en categorize with CommonSense usage in all projects! in the usage kolom, normaal is b.v.: in de usage kolom: Categories: CC-BY-SA-3.0, Maps of Moldova, Moldova usage in all projects

Zie verschil via bulk Image:Praha 2006-1.JPG en via handmatig: Image:Sobor Cathedral.JPG Weet U wat ik moet toevoegen? anders ga ik maar door en corrigeer handmatig de orphan weg, neem aan dat dat kan en de licentie verhoog met groet,-- KJL 68 Watchdog 17:31, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi SterkeBak/1,

I received an e-mail notifying me you have changed my user talk page. I saw your message and I get a bit confused cause Herbytyme blocked the user, then, assuming good faith I did an autoreversion on the Admin notice board but, considering that it is not the first time this user plays with the rules (blocked till infinity on es-wiki for that) I've contacted the admin to reblock him again.

When I saw your message I get also a bit scared, cause I thought that I've done something wrong; if I done I hope you could apologize me.

A brief translation of the text could be:

You have been warned several times that the logos of the WMF are copyrighted and despite our warnings you are using them without any permission. You have been blocked one week. If you consider that this block is non-justified, please, add {{unblock|reason}} and an admin will review your block.

Please, let me now any further questions. Cheers. --Dferg (T-ES) 16:16, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Twice in a row you have deleted a screenshot that was created by myself, via the opensource TurnKey Linux project.

The image inside the screenshot is also on wikimedia commons:

Please stop deleting my files.

I am going to upload it again.

If the image is also on commons, why uploading it true a screenshot. The linux site's says the don't own the copyright of the images and there for i nominated for Copyvio.

I do not understand why this image was deleted. The reasons are so vague and far from specific. This is so frustrating! I go through everything right and all looks fine and then, bam, it is removed because of "a very vague reason". 'It didn't meet the licensing requirements or what not?" AHHHH!!!!! help me!!!!!!

No it did not meet the licence requirements. The page you that you linked was saying the software was under a gfdl licence but the photo where all rights reserved. With that it would have been copyvio. Later you give me a link to a commons image on that screenshot. The image on commons is under a free licence so it is oke to use. I could not see on that site the image was free so i deleted it for copyvio. The image is oke now. But the site that use the commons image was making a mistake. Because of there mistake i deleted the image. That is why it went wrong. Do you understand? Sterkebaktalk 20:26, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

I was commenting on your deletionist attitude as exemplified by the entry above. You are far too trigger-happily deleting high-quality images like Image:Flatiron Building New York City 1903 Chicago Trib.jpg and Image:Gray1120.png. You have blocked users from editing your talk page, and now you even censored my remarks here. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 15:07, 31 October 2008 (UTC)


Dear SterkeBak, why did you remove the image i uploaded (File:Página principal do sinapse.PNG)? It´s a free software screenshot. I have´t undestood. Could you explain me, please? Nevinho (talk) 12:54, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Sure i can explain. The browser you used is free indeed. On the bottom of the image you had the Windows Vista toolbar (that is not free). And i am not sure of the content of the website is free. Because if you make a screenshot of a internetsite, the material on that site must be free. And i don't think the logo and stuff is free.
Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 12:59, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll edit the screenshot bottom. The content of the site was designed by myself. I've got the intellectual property. Please give me a note when you have responded. Nevinho (talk) 18:29, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I think if you lose the windows toolbar the problem is solved. Sterkebaktalk 18:42, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I would like a second opinion from a third part, if I may. If you were not sure about the logo, you should ask me instead. thanks for attention Nevinho (talk) 18:18, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

I give me opinion over there. I am sure that windows is not free. So there was no need to ask you. Sterkebaktalk

Hi, about your deletion request for [14], this was added due to the lack of pictures showing male's pubic hair.

removing category "Ogg files" from "SpanishPod" files

Hi there! Sorry, I didn't see your removal of the "Ogg files" category of the SpanishPod files; therefore, I added a couple more of files with this category.

Removal of image.

Hello there,

It seems that you have removed an image from wikipedia commons which I have uploaded. I have no idea why you did this. I have the license to put up the has been granted to me by the artist.


Hi, I have taken a loop on your deleted images. I have found:
If you have a licence for the images, you can reupload them and give them a good licence. Please make sure when you are not the author from the image that you send the permission to Commons:OTRS before you upload them.
You can also ask for undeletion on COM:UNDEL. When you ask there please give the licence for the images with your reqeust.
If you have any quistions or need any help. Please ask me.

Question on this image

Dear SterkeBak, I have a question for you. Is this Commons image legitimate: Image:Dinogetia Bizantine Cross.jpg?

  • The original source is a French government web site and the license tag does not seem 100% correct. It says it is 2D art...whereas the object is surely 3D, I think. What is your opinion here? I am not an expert on such matters sadly. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:12, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Hi am also no expert on french law. I think the image is not free. But i am not sure. I am going to ask somebody else to give his opinion. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 08:12, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Dear SterkeBak, Thanks for your reply. The image of the cross cannot be 2D since you can see the shadows in the image. That is why an Admin asked for this image to be deleted too: Image:Toetmoses1.jpg As for the copyright, I assume that the image belongs to the French government...although I may be wrong. It is a pity--if it was just a painting or a papyri--there would be no problem since this would be 2D art. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 22:44, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Your recent full protections

They did not at all warrant a full protection, and certainly not for 1 whole month. I'd rather be more mellow with the uploader. They probably wanted their image deleted, but giving them a vandalsm warning in return? No... Sorry but my suggestion is to remove that and apologize. --Kanonkas(talk) 17:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

I removed the protection and the message. Placed a nother message on it instead. Do you think it is better this way? And first i was thinking it was vandalism, after your message i think the same as you. Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 17:19, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, thank you. Best regards, --Kanonkas(talk) 18:15, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

I was trying to remove the images, as I was uncomfortable about the copyright issue. I 'think' one was produced by the US Govt, but do not know so for a fact. Other one is one I found on line and a friend colorized. Trying to be a good a citizen here. Is it all right to guess that an image is in the public domain if it depicts an old govt facility? Can I assume anything postd to the Internet is in the public domain? Want to err on the side of caution here. --Mpdc100 (talk) 06:47, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, not all images on the internet are public domein. When there is no notice on a image to say that it is free, you have to assume that it is copyrighted. Can you please give links to the locations where you found the images. Than we can work to find the right licence, or delete the images. Sterkebaktalk 08:20, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello Sterkebak,

I noticed that I kept you quite busy deleting all those images I uploaded recently. Sorry about that.

I just went through a very time consuming e-mail exchange with the German Wikipedia team regarding an article I posted recently. Honestly, it was quite a headache to get that article about the "Global Entrepreneurship Week" through their quality control. Now that this is finally done I'd like to have the article decorated by the "Week's" logo but I really don't feel like going through all those unreadable guidelines of Wikimedia Commons. I hold a master's degree in philosophy, English literature and economic policy but, honestly, I'm too stupid to upload a logo at Wikipedia permanently.

Therefore, if there is anything like an easy "three-steps-to-upload-a-logo-way" I would love to get learn about it. I can assure you that I do have the right to upload the "Global Entrepreneurship Week" logo. I'm one of the German hosts who coordinated the event week. I'm also looking after the German webpage where you can actually download the logo and lots of other stuff too.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,

Why did you steal my image? IturbideOvalo.png

I mean, it is how it works?, because if it is, it's gonna be one more thing to know why I shouldn't be registered or uploading my own images. Also, it's not correct to change versions I guess only because you think it has better colors, how can I image a controlled respected world if there are people like that?.

Ohh if you are an administrator, I know you can deleted users, because I installed a Wiki time ago, so, there are too many things what I am very disappointed of this place, maybe I am nobody, but I won't spend my time with this, so, please tell me if you are an administrator and if you can eliminate my account and my all uploaded images. --Heraldicos (talk) 08:55, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

This is a wiki. Everybody can change everything. You reverted it to a version with very bad colors. I changed it back.
What do you mean with stealing the image ? Sterkebaktalk 19:50, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Hallo SterkeBak, I noticed you already moved the DEVCO logo to the englisch Wiki. Thanks - wanted to do it right now and noticed you made it. I will then delete the PNG in commons. --C.wolke (talk) 20:43, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

I have fully-protected this image for 2 weeks because of upload warring it appears you have participated in. Please discuss on the image talk page any outstanding issues. I will unprotect that image when the dispute is resolved.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 01:23, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your message but i wasn't involved in the editwar. A time ago when i was still a admin... some people on irc where saying !admin@commons and told me about the editwar.
I was trying to end this editwar by making the cropt version available as Image:Bronze Soldier of Tallinn, 2007 (crop).jpg. see here and here so i wasn't really involved only trying to end it. But i support your protection complete. Sterkebaktalk 06:21, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi SterkeBak, I noticed that you tagged these images as copyvios. Seeing that these images just consists of some typefaces and two red bars, I fail to see where the threshold of originality is met in these cases, i.e. I do not think that they are eligible for copyright. In my opinion, {{PD-textlogo}} would apply. Best wishes, AFBorchert (talk) 20:35, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Yes i was thinking about that also. But i was thinking that the two bars and the position of the text made it a logo that doesn't aply for Textlogo. But feel free to change it in a normal Deletion request so we can hear more opinions. Sterkebaktalk 21:36, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Ok, SterkeBak, I've just opened a regular deletion request and your opinion is welcomed. Best wishes, AFBorchert (talk) 22:22, 4 December 2008 (UTC)


How do I delete logo from Commons? I want to upload now on the English version.

please send note when responded.

You can place {{Speedy|**replace with your reasson**}} on it. A admin will delete is asp. Do you have a link to the image for me? Cheers, Sterkebaktalk 16:51, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
