As for me loaded files[edit]

As to File:En Avant Guingamp 86-94 logo.svg. What do you mean a product of its not own work? I created this file yourself in Inkskape based on the team photo of the football club 80s-90s. Analogues of this image on the Internet is not. As for the rest I downloaded this logos of the French team, their primary source is the site, where they are laid out by the authors to the public and free download.

I answered in Commons:Deletion requests/File:En Avant Guingamp 86-94 logo.svg. Taivo (talk) 20:38, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Delete previous versions[edit]

Hi Taivo. I have a question, I have been experimenting with coloring a black and white photo but I didn't like the result. Due to old monitors I wasn't able to see it before and I made the mistake of uploading them. I decided I only want the original black and white photo uploaded. So I did today. I replaced the earlier upload. This is the final version and the only version I want to have uploaded. The permission of the work is already done. Can you please remove the previous uploaded versions? (the ones from 29 and 8 September). The only reason they are bigger is because of the fake colors. Thanks in advance! E. Monteyn (talk) 00:47, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Recent deletion closure[edit]

Commons:Deletion requests#Closing discussions says that "In general, requests can be closed by an administrator after seven days.". So I'm wondering why you closed Commons:Deletion requests/File:Kalachakra 2014 (14515227658).jpg (as "delete") when less than three hours had passed? – Philosopher Let us reason together. 00:17, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

It seemed to me, that the result was so obvious. Taivo (talk) 09:48, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Would you mind un-deleting the image restoring the discussion? I'm sorry, but deleting an image in a discussion-based deletion process (as opposed to the speedy deletion process, which is separate) seems quite inappropriate when there is no time given for the discussion to take place. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 20:42, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Actually, if new circumstances do not appear, then the photo would be deleted anyway. Please say, what kind of educational value is here, and I may consider restoring the photo. Taivo (talk) 21:42, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
I can't do that unless I can see the photo. And I can't do that because you deleted it. Unless it met a speedy deletion criterion (if so, it should have been noted in your close notice and the deletion log), such an early close was inappropriate anyway. I suppose the next step is for me to head over to Commons:Undeletion requests, then? – Philosopher Let us reason together. 01:38, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
OK, you did not show any reason to restore, because there isn't any, so I do not restore the file. I explained when closing the request, why the file should be deleted, so you can go into undeletion requests. Taivo (talk) 08:44, 24 January 2015 (UTC)


.moe TLD logo.svg

This image is considered textlogo, so many images from Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Association football logos of Turkey probably would be too. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 21:05, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

No. All deleted logos had other problems. Taivo (talk) 22:30, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Taivo. You deleted some of these files, but that is not a right thing to do. First of all, you should have done a better research for the creation dates of these logos. For example, "Logo of Vefa SK.gif" has been created circa 1910s, and "Logo of Feriköy SK.png" has been created circa 1930s, "BJK 1903.png" has been created circa 1900s-1910s etc. We can not act on "possibilities" to delete files. Secondly, if we take a public domain logo (lets take this one) and change it a little bit with replacing the text with ehatever we want and change it colours. After some minor changes, we get another logo, right? So if the first logo is public domain because "it consists entirely of information that is common property and contains no original authorship", the second logo that we created must be a public domain too. What I'm thying to say is, logos that you deleted are public domain, because "they consist entirely of information that is common property and contains no original authorship".--Rapsar (talk) 15:18, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Rapsar, please give links, which show, that some files are old, and the old files are restored. Finding these links are actually uploader's work and the deletion nomination was open whole month. Taivo (talk) 15:46, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
They should be kept beacues of they are simple designs. Some of them are public domain because of their creation date, too. I may have added wrong licenses some of these files, but that is not a reason to delete them, right?--Rapsar (talk) 16:08, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Microsoft logo is simple, Audi logo is simple, Volkswagen logo is simple, Olympic rings are simple. None of the logos, which I deleted, was simple. Wrong license (for example PD-textlogo here) can be reason to delete, when correct license is not found. Some deleted logos could be old, but without proof for that they remain deleted. Taivo (talk) 21:04, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
They were consist only simple geometric shapes and text. Most of the people who participated the DR said "we shold keep them" and made reasonable comments, but you deleted them anyway. What is the point of discussion, if you act however you want?--Rapsar (talk) 12:15, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
They had all elaborate shield of coat of arms. The simplest of them was file:Logo of Beyoğluspor.png, this is borderline and I considered it keep due to simplicity, but actually this shield surpasses also threshold of otiginality, it is not made of simple geometrical figures. Fortunately this logo is very probably old. The point of discussion is presenting arguments. The deletion discussion is not voting, you can look here for an extreme example: I voted delete, other 31 people voted keep and my 1 vote weighed more than 31 other votes altogether. Taivo (talk) 22:50, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
I agree with your opinion about "deletion discussion is not voting", I'm supporting the same idea in Turkish Wikipedia. But your example is not good, because these anonymous users are the same person obviously. Anyway, just take a look at this logo. It only consists simple shield of coat of arms, a star and some text. Can you tell me, are there any elaborate shape in that one?--Rapsar (talk) 11:04, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
The shield of coat of arms is not simple. If the shield would be rectangular or ellipsoidal, it would be simple. Taivo (talk) 14:08, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
The shape of the shield does not matter, it is a public domain anyway. Just look at here or here. If I take this one (which is pulic domain) and add some text, vertical lines and a star, it would be a pulic domain too.--Rapsar (talk) 16:34, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, but Bilecikspor's shield has bigger holes left and right and it has not a pointy, but round bottom. Standard shields are of course in public domain, but this shield is not standard and is not in public domain. Taivo (talk) 17:00, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

File:Alfa vector.png[edit]

Dear Taivo, this vector image is absolutely and totally my own work and I can present a CDR (CorelDraw) file created by me at any time. The logo itself is not registered yet but de-facto it is used by company where I work.

Konkreetsemalt. Kolmel failil pole litsentsi, missugune litsents neile lisada? Nelja järgmist faili ma ei tohi ja kaht viimast ei taha taastada.
  • file:A.Kaasiku fotonäituse avamine.jpg – pole litsentsi.Faili kasutusluba on mul olemas,kuna kasutan kas alati mulle kingitud kasutusõigusega faile või enda tehtud tööd virtuaalsetest arhiividest.

Kui juhtun ise pildil olema, on võimalus näiteks loodusvaate puhul autoknipsi kasutada. Ent konkreetset pilti fotonäituse avamisest enam hästi ei mäleta ja ei hakka siin aega raiska. Mees kes tahab pilti kustutada ja kui teab, miks ja milleks- mis mul vastu öelda...

Ma jah, olen asendanud teinekord kuhugile kadunud pilte ja samas mõtlen, et kas olen unustanud siis üles laadida, et kuhu pilt sai kaduda ja siis ka asendanud jne. Vabandan, kui ei osanud konkreetseid vastuseid öelda, pilte on silme eest palju läbi käinud, praegu tegelen ülesvõtetega Venemaast ja raske tagasi möödunud aastatele vaadata. Vahel mõni suure jutuga ingliskeelne sedastaja pajatab mõne pildi või kirjutise juures, ent ma ei hakka lugema sõnastiku abil teateid, aru saan eestist ja venest, ülejäänuga end ei pinguta. Ja nagu olen maininud, aeg pole raiskamiseks kui pilditöö ootamas Soovin Vikitegijatele parimat! User:Aleksander Kaasik

Aleksander, ma pean konkreetsem olema. Ma saan kolm esimest pilti taastada, aga neil puudub litsents. Missugustel tingimustel oled nõus need pildid Commonsis avaldama? Kas nõuad näiteks, et pildi juures tuleb alati sinu nime mainida? Või ei sea üldse mingeid tingimusi?

Vabandan, et ei saanud litsentsi olemusest aru. Mulle teeb ainult röömu, kui teised saavad ka kasutada neid pilte ükskõik mis otstarbel. Need tingimused mulle sobivad. Tegin näiteks üsna heaks Bresti pildi, nägi ühel ajal Eesti ajalehes sarnast, kuid kehvakeses vormistuses. Siinkohal mainin, et olen valmis mudima mõnd pilti kui eesti Vikitajal vaja üldkasutatavaks tarbeks üles seada mõnd olulist ülesvõtet. Asjandust mida tunnen, saan abistamisena pakkuda, ent mitte inglise keelses olus.User:Aleksander Kaasik

{{CC-by-sa-3.0}} või {{PD-self}} või midagi muud? (Pildid peavad olema tasuta kasutatavad ükskõik milliseks, sealhulgas äriliseks otstarbeks, teistel inimestel peab olema ka õigus pilte umber teha.

Tema viimased pildid on CC BY-SA 4.0 litsentsi all. Seega küsiks pigem ühe lihtsa kas küsimuse: kas see sama litsents sobib ka nende teiste litsentsita piltide juurde? Ega Aleksander esimest korda pilte lisanud. Kruusamägi (talk) 09:36, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

"Mantra" images[edit]

While I of course don't disagree with you deleting them (obvious, since I made the actual requests) it's worth noting IMO that the copyright logo itself doesn't make them fair use... they are probably PD-logo as below the threshold of originality. What is apparent (though I didn't want to try to get into the details there, largely out of a desire to not BITE the 'owner') is that they are rather out of scope... they were connected to a draft about a not-notable business and self-published ebook about a form of 'therapy' that, from looking at the author's website, apparently consists of traveling to Singapore and paying to be masturbated. No, I'm not kidding. Revent (talk) 21:09, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Copyright question[edit]

As I know it is not right to upload a company logo to commons. File:Sanalphp.png is this site's logo. And the pages which consist it are deleted on wikipedia. So is it okay to upload this kinda photo?--Ayrıntılı Bilgi (talk) 18:52, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Usually OTRS-permission is needed from company representative. Permission is not needed for very simple logos (which do not surpass threshold of originality). You asked, is it OK to upload this kind of logo. Usually no, because in my opinion it surpasses threshold of originality. I thought, that this case is exception, because probably company representative himself uploaded it. Everybody is allowed to have some personal files on his/her userpage. Taivo (talk) 19:08, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
When I declined speedy deletion, it was used on 3 userpages. Now it is still used in 1 userpage. If the last userpage is deleted, then I can delete the file as out of project scope (unused logo of non-notable company), but not earlier. If you want, then you can create a regular deletion request. That way the logo can be deleted even if the last userpage will not be deleted. Taivo (talk) 19:08, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry to bother but it is no longer used like you said. I didnt mean to take your time. Just want to help.--Ayrıntılı Bilgi (talk) 20:47, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Incorrect deletion[edit]

No. I asked for someone to delete Template:Portal-headline, which redirected to Template:Headline after a page move, not Template:Headline itself. (Obviously, I should have removed "#REDIRECT" on the page before asking for it to be deleted, but I didn't think someone would accidentally delete the page the redirect pointed to.) Since you followed the redirect and deleted the wrong template first, when you saw the broken redirect Template:Portal-headline you deleted it because it was broken. You should have only deleted Template:Portal-headline and not Template:Headline. Please undelete Template:Headline. - dcljr (talk) 00:48, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

This has been done by another admin. - dcljr (talk) 20:26, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
You said at the VP: "This error happens, if speedy deletion tag is placed after redirect link, not before." That makes a lot of sense. I should have realized… (In the future, I will simply deactivate the redirect by removing the "#". Just to be safe.) - dcljr (talk) 01:32, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Ridiculous deletions[edit]

I will probably not be wasting my time with the Wikimedia Commons as I am not at all sure why you deleted (censored) my profile page. My profile page contained a 1 paragraph generic statement about myself. You also provided NO EXPLANATION as to why you deleted my profile page.

If this is the terms of using this website I will probably be using Flickr and I will not be donating any money to anything wiki. I notice how you guys are always soliciting for cash. Is there any wonder why people do not donate to this website? Its because of this ridiculous mindless behavior.

Well, I will make sure none of my content reaches your website as I have revoked my copyright to all of my images posted here. I will continue to use Flickr which seems like the best place for posting photos.

I request your supervisor contact me, but wait, you probably have no supervision or anyone responsible for watching over what you do. At least with Flickr and other websites there is a management to complain to.— Preceding unsigned comment added by MichaelVadon (talk • contribs)

The message (especially e-mail address) on your userpage was out of project scope. It did not consist of single paragraph, but was 3 paragraphs long. You can complain in COM:AN/U. You can request undeletion your files in undeletion requests. Taivo (talk) 09:44, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
@MichaelVadon: I am sorry that you had a negative experience with Wikipedia and Wikimedia. I hope to limit your disappointment by explaining that the content on any user page cannot be freely chosen. Otherwise, the user page (and thereby the expensive storage and bandwidth that the Wikipedia donations are used for) could be abused f.ex. as an advertising platform, for example for a professional photographer. Also, I would like to point out that once you have licensed your media under the Creative Commons license, it may not be easy to revoke those rights you granted others, see en:Creative Commons license#Applicable works.

Author requested deletion of page: author's request on creation day[edit]

Please delete my files also, to avoid problems in reallife. Thanks in advance --Pitlane02 🏁talk 10:20, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done I really do not believe your words "to avoid problems in reallife". The files did not surpass threshold of originality and there was nothing personal. I'd better not delete them, they were potentially in scope, but ... uploader's request on uploading week. Taivo (talk) 10:30, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
At this point of view you are right, but the reason of the signs are the accidents at the Nürburgring[3], and I'm to deep in this community in reallife. Thanks again and regards --Pitlane02 🏁talk 10:38, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Question regarding page on Estonian Wikipedia[edit]

Thank you for deleting the File:NAF BTR-80 near Chornukhyne.png which I nominated for speedy deletion.

I see that in addition to having an advanced level of English and Russian, you are also an administrator on the Estonian Wikipedia.

I hope you don't mind that I ask you a question about the Estonian Wikipedia.

On the English Wikipedia I often go to one article and convert a bare reference to use the 'cite web' or 'cite news' template. My rationale is that an article is not stronger than its sources, so this is important. Obviously, the actual link, the displayed title etc. is not changed by such a conversion.

Now, with a few exceptions, one can go to a different language version of the same article, and perform the same conversion. One has to be careful, especially with the dates and trans_title, but the approach generally works well.

In this manner I have modified Wikipedia pages in more than 20 languages, some of which I don't know at all. In this manner I often get a 'Thank you' from an editor from one of these languages, that I at most know just a little bit.

Which is nice.

At one point, I went from the English en:Little green men (2014 Crimean crisis) to the other languages on that topic (excluding the Russian which was locked), but including the Estonian et:Rohelised mehikesed (I am aware that the Estonian title translates to something else than the English, but that is not a concern for my question) and performed the conversion of bare references to use the 'cite news' or 'cite web' templates instead also on the Estonian page.

Somewhat to my surprise, my two attempts were quickly reverted after a short exchange on the Talk page - and instead of an edit summary I got a not-so-friendly posting on my English Talk page (to which I replied in kind).

So if you have the time, I would much appreciate if you could answer this question:

Are the two above reverts of my edits really according to some special policy on the Estonian Wikipedia? (And if not, you are welcome to reinstate the changes I made).

Regardless of the answer to my question, I thank you for supporting Wikipedia. Lklundin (talk) 16:22, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

At first, your sentence "I am aware that the Estonian title translates to something else than the English" is not correct. "Roheline" 'green' + -d 'plural' = "rohelised" 'green (plural)'. "Mees" 'man' + -ke 'little' + -d 'plural' = "mehikesed" 'little men'. But that's not important.
Estonian wiki tries to avoid dates like 2015-04-07, because Estonian reader takes that as 4th of July 2015, which is incorrect. After your edits, there were 5 such dates. This was the main reason of reverts. I am not sure, what you should do, except avoiding such date format in in the future. You can write "7. aprill 2015" or at least "7. 4. 2015". Taivo (talk) 09:28, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
User:Lklundin, now I read the mentioned talk page. One user complained, that the template "cite web" must not be used – apparently on the reason mentioned before. The other user said, that he cannot reply to you in your preferred language, because your main language is apparently C (this was not nice by him, I suppose). Taivo (talk) 10:15, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
OK, many thanks for taking the time to look into this and for answering my question. All the best, Lklundin (talk) 10:28, 18 April 2015 (UTC) PS. The date format YYYY-MM-DD is a part of ISO 8601 (for which I see that there is no page in Estonian).


Thank for deletion of all those "V.A.D.". --Havang(nl) (talk) 09:21, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Category:Cadillac Series 452[edit]

Hi Taivo. Please tell me where I go to get help to sort this out. I need to change the name of that category in the headline to Cadillac 452 because the word series is wrong there and also can lead to confusion. But Commons when I try to create a new category Cadillac 452 insists that I use the old name Cadillac Series 452 even though you have just kindly deleted that category for me! Any suggestions very welcome! Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 10:29, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done I deleted the wrong redirect. Please recreate the category:Cadillac 452. Taivo (talk) 10:33, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! It had me totally fooled. regards, Eddaido (talk) 10:34, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

File:Kakerdaja raba.jpg[edit]

Pildi lisanud kasutaja soovib seda faili kustutada. Kuna meil on Kakerdaja rabast niigi külluses fotosid, siis võiks vast sellele soovile vastu tulla. Kruusamägi (talk) 11:32, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

 Not done Pole nõus. Pilti kasutatakse kahes projektis, sellisel juhul ei tulda üleslaadija palvele vastu. Taivo (talk) 14:11, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Enam ei kasutata. Nagu ma ütlesin, siis teisi pilte jagub. Kruusamägi (talk) 22:44, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Doyle Bramhall - Ron Baker 2.JPG[edit]

Taivo, The author (Ron Baker) is the same as the uploader (Crawlin Kingsnake). Crawlin Kingsnake is my user name on both Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. My real name is Ron Baker. I license to Commons (Share Alike) whenever I upload a photo, or when an author wants to use one of my photos from Flickr on Wikipedia. I don't change the licensing until I am uploading or allowing others to use one of my photos. That is why on my Flickr photos, most have "All Rights Reserved". I maintain that right until I post to Wikimedia Commons, then I change the permission to "Creative Commons - Share Alike".

Here is the link to my original photo of Doyle Bramhall on Flickr:

Please remove the deletion request. Thank you.

✓ Done Thank you very much for quick answer. I closed the request as kept. Taivo (talk) 17:47, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Deciduous teeth by David Shankbone.jpg[edit]

Hi, thanks for dealing with this request. I'm afraid that you didn't read COM:IDENT, an official guideline, which makes it clear that it "outside of Commons […] is [a] problem of Commons" – in short, photographs of identifiable people just cannot be kept on Commons if local laws don't allow it. Quotes:

The subject's consent is usually needed for publishing a photograph of an identifiable individual taken in a private place, and Commons expects this even if local laws do not require it.

The degree to which a subject is identifiable varies. An image that includes a clear view of the face is highly identifiable.

If the original or similar images are already present on the Internet (either on Commons or elsewhere) then attempts at anonymising the subject are ultimately futile. Content-based image retrieval engines such as TinEye or Google Images can identify a subject that has been anonymised.

This should leave no doubt that the images should be deleted, regardless of the opinion of an unpatrolled user with a liking for overly long comments.    FDMS  4    22:53, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Abd said very well in discussion: "Policies exist for a purpose; when the purpose is gone, the policy is meaningless." You quote three parts of policy. Part 2 does not apply for children's photos multiple years after photographing. The photo has been in Commons for many years and the subject is not identifiable any more. In addition, no proof is given, that the photo is made in private place. So part 1 can also be unapplicable, but this is not important any more. I am convinced, that I closed the request correctly, according to existing policies. Taivo (talk) 14:24, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
