IndiaFM ticket[edit]

Stifle can you please check Ticket:2008030310010794 and see whether the licensing is correct? A huge number of images uploaded are pending on the outcome of this ticket. -- Legolas from Mirkwood 12:22, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

User:John Vandenberg is now dealing with this ticket; he should be able to give you the lowdown. Stifle (talk) 13:55, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Wonderful. REgaring the images in Category:Re-Invention World Tour, can you please delete them as listed in the Ticket? Mad-Eyes.net is refusing to send a mail from their id, and is insisting that I send their permission forwarded to OTRS. I explained them that Commons is not accepting it, but oh well. Sorry for all the inconvenience. -- Legolas from Mirkwood 03:59, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
You might want to pass this one to COM:AN where an admin with automated tools will pick it up. I am very busy at the moment. Stifle (talk) 08:57, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

File:WBBaker.jpg[edit]

Hi! You approved the permission for the image above. What about this one File:WBBakerPromotional.jpg? Perhaps you could ask if we could get one for that image also? --MGA73 (talk) 18:35, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

The ticket from that image will cover the other one. Stifle (talk) 13:59, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Category:OTRS received as of 1 December 2009[edit]

Hi! Could you also check the images in this category? I noticed OTRS has been removed from this image File:October 87 - Khalis-loyal Muja.jpg. Was that supposed to happen? --MGA73 (talk) 19:16, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

The four images in the category do not have permission. We received an email releasing those four and five other images under an invalid licence, and when I asked for clarification, we got permission for the other five images but not the four in the category.
The removal of OTRS from that other image appears to have been by accident. I've restored it. Stifle (talk) 14:02, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Could you please issue OTRS ticket for the following image:

The individual (Daijiworld Media Pvt Ltd Mangalore) have already sent evidence of their permission to Wikimedia. --

Sanfy (talk)

14:51, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

OTRS tickets don't work that way. When someone processes the email we received, they will either reply to it requesting further information, or reply confirming the permission is good and tag the image accordingly. There is currently a backlog of approximately 1½ months processing OTRS emails, so please be patient. Stifle (talk) 08:22, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Deletion requests/File:Ciscobra.jpg[edit]

Good job. Thank you. Leandromartinez (talk) 09:17, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

File:Jacopo_Werther_Coordinates_Political_Compass.png[edit]

I use this file in my user page in Italian Wikipedia. Please undelete it. Jacopo Werther (talk) 17:59, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Did you read the deletion request? Stifle (talk) 08:02, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Yes, I read the DR, but then I forgot to write that I meant to use the file in my User Page and then I added the file to my user page. I know, I made a mistake and I have been negligent and I'm really sorry for that, but I'd like to use this file still in my User Page in Italian Wikipedia. I hope in your understanding. Best regards, Jacopo Werther (talk) 09:26, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
      • OK, undeleted. Stifle (talk) 09:34, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
        • Stifle, I thank you so much for your understanding. Have a very nice day, Jacopo Werther (talk) 09:37, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Buenos Aires-Recoleta-P2090056.jpg[edit]

Hi, I think you closed this DR too early. Discussion is still going on at Commons talk:Freedom of panorama#Argentina, and right now COM:FOP#Argentina states FOP covers buildings only. So could you please re-open the DR, and wait for the situation to be clarified before closing it? Thanks. –Tryphon 15:37, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Too early? It's been open for 3 months :| How long more? Stifle (talk) 08:09, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Well too early in the sense that the discussion about changing the FOP status of Argentina is not over yet. And clearly, the result of the DR depends on the result of that discussion. If you insist on closing it now, then it should be a delete, since our current COM:FOP#Argentina says there is no FOP for sculptures. Seeing that you closed it as kept, I thought you were anticipating a change of that status, but as I said, I think it's too early to tell. –Tryphon 08:23, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
      • OK, I'll reopen it, but the vote majority is in favour of keeping (and we don't have "consensus" or "strength of vote" rules here like enwiki does) so if you are going to try to convince people that it should be a delete, I suggest you do so promptly. Stifle (talk) 08:52, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
        • Thanks, I will. –Tryphon 08:55, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Michail Fedin[edit]

The original claim of nominator that "author of photo don't understand what is CC" is misleading, the author clearly published his works cc-by-sa, moreover he has provided explanation of the basic terms of license (see author page autotranslated. The only problem is the lack of version number. This problem has been discussed on Commons_talk:Licensing/Archive_26#Creative_Commons_license_without_any_version_information and prevailing opinion was that CC licenses without version number are acceptable. Only nominator was against the acceptance, but in even he did finally admit that the arguments of his opponent are surely logical, but he still have some reservations (unfortunately, that line in the discussion timestamped 16:00, 3 May 2010 (UTC) was not translated from Russian). Please reconsiderate your decision and leave files undeleted (per community consensus shown on Commons_talk:Licensing), or reopen the deletion discussion. --M5 (talk) 10:32, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Well, wouldn't it have been nice if the people who held this opinion had voted against deletion, no? I'll reopen the discussion, but in the absence of keep voters soon it'll be deleted again soon. Stifle (talk) 19:02, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

File:Desarrollo.jpg[edit]

Hi. You closed the mass deletion request, but you seem to have forgotten this file. --Leyo 10:04, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Don't know how that happened, but it's done now. Thanks. Stifle (talk) 08:11, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

File:David bowie 05061978 01 150.jpg[edit]

Hi Stifle. I undid your npd tagging of this image file. I didn't upload the photo (I just found a larger version on the source webpage) but the uploader claimed it was his/her own work, so npd doesn't seem appropriate here. In addition, he/she has been active in the past in proving his/her own authorship (see File:Peter gabriel 31081978 02 400.jpg). If you know something I don't, let me know. -Gump Stump (talk) 16:06, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

You uploaded a larger version of the image and there is no evidence that the uploader wished to release it at that resolution. I'm not disputing the original image. Sorry if that was unclear, but you need to prove that User:Helwik agreed you could upload the higher resolution image. Stifle (talk) 11:24, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I see. I didn't realize that was a problem. I thought the cc license applied to the creative work, not the creative work at the resolution it was uploaded as (unless specified separately by the author). Is there a Commons policy you can refer me to? I can't find mention of that in the text of the cc license itself. In the meantime, I'll revert the image and remove the npd template. -Gump Stump (talk) 19:19, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
I don't know of any, but I would suggest checking at COM:VP. An uploader may for example release a low-resolution of an image under a free license while retaining rights to a larger version, in case he may wish to sell it. Stifle (talk) 12:29, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

File:Angela_Romeo.jpg[edit]

Help! Thx. SergeWoodzing (talk) 18:17, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

What has this got to do with me? Stifle (talk) 15:19, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
As I just also replied on my talk page, you solved this last time which is being used frivolously as one of the arguments in this new situation. Please see the current deletion discussion where that previous case has been dragged into it! SergeWoodzing (talk) 02:13, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
There are several other OTRS agents who have contributed to the discussion and I agree with them. To retain the image the owner of the image should send this email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org. Stifle (talk) 09:49, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
Replied on my talk page. Thx. SergeWoodzing (talk) 14:26, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Need help reviewing this file: File:Mossen Pere de Queralt.jpg[edit]

Hello, Stifle

I need help reviewing this file: File:Mossen Pere de Queralt.jpg. Apparently, it is transferred from Wikipedia but I can't even figure out what exactly it is. Could you please assist if you can? Or, do you know anyone who can help?

Fleet Command (talk) 15:33, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

The full description from the file page on Wikipedia was transferred over verbatim. I don't know what else there is that can be done. Stifle (talk) 08:28, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Me too. Thanks anyway. Fleet Command (talk) 09:53, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

OTRS ticket request[edit]

Hello Stifle, this photo was taken from flickr website a while ago, but still need a ticket checked, may you provide it? Bye! --95.251.19.250 17:58, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Flickr images aren't processed via the OTRS system. Instead you should tag the image {{flickrreview}}. Stifle (talk) 10:19, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Copyvio[edit]

Hey stifle how are you? Cna you please check the copyright of this image File:Madonna sex 0241658 erotic.png? I don't think it can come under free documentation. -- Legolas from Mirkwood 03:51, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Rename request[edit]

Any chance you can deal with the move request made on my enwiki talk page? Because this is not a controversial move, I asked Stan about a week ago but he has not been around for a while. Thanks Ww2censor (talk) 22:25, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

It looks like someone has created it under the new name. I've deleted the incorrectly-spelled one. Stifle (talk) 11:48, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
It appears the original editor also created the correct version but still asked for the original to be renamed. All's well that ends well. Thanks Ww2censor (talk) 15:14, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

File:Digambar Kamat.jpg[edit]

Please delete this image. The person who i thought was the author has just informed me that the image does not belong to him, but to the Department of Information and Publicity, Govt of Goa. Joyson Noel Holla at me 09:02, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Gone. Stifle (talk) 11:28, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Creative Rights[edit]

Hi. If you are knowledgible of rights issues, would you please carefully check my two recent uploads: this and this, and inform me if everything is correct with that license-thing and if it's alright to use these two scans on Wikipedia, given that in both cases the person showing in the images has yielded all rights of use to us on Wiki. Thank you, /Orrling (talk) 03:03, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

What's required is authorization from the person who took the photographs, not the person depicted. In Israel, currently photos taken in 1960 or earlier have expired copyright. Stifle (talk) 12:39, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Blender.svg[edit]

Hello, Stifle. I have trouble finding deletion review page in Commons. Does it exists? Because the following looks like a joke to me:

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Blender.svg

We have no input and no consensus; also it certainly doesn't look like {{pd-ineligible}} to me.

What do you think I should do about it? Fleet Command (talk) 10:42, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

There's no DRV for kept images, only COM:RFU. You can make appeals at COM:AN. Stifle (talk) 18:54, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I hope you forgive me for not waiting seven days for your reply. (No sarcasm intended; I indeed re-nominated the image for deletion after 24 hours.) Fleet Command (talk) 08:59, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

OTRS Jessica Mae Stover[edit]

Hello, I am suspicious about the pictures from User:Redwing2, here and at enwiki. The user uploaded pictures of Jessica Mae Stover, stating, he created them himself. All pictures are small, have no metadata and are from different places/situations and have different styles.

On the last picture in enwiki you added the OTRS, could you please check the permission, if that all is really okay? Thanks, --CennoxX (talk) 15:14, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

  • I've nominated the first one for deletion. For the others I have rechecked the OTRS ticket and it's OK. Stifle (talk) 17:28, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

a minor point on formerly free Afghan images[edit]

I left a note following the heads-up I got when File:Fareeda Kuchi.jpg was nominated for deletion. It is a minor point. I informed the contributor who nominated the image, and since you were the administrator who deleted it, I thought I should inform you, too.
