Re: No More "Fair Use"?[edit]

There used to be a "Fair Use" option under licensing, is it no longer available? I posted the question at the Talk page of the image as well: [Image talk:TcsLogo.gif]. Did it change latetly? If no logo images are allowed, then it mean no logos AT ALL will be added to wikipedia from now on? Waqas.usman 05:24, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Commons since beginning allow only images which anybady could use for any purposes. This automatically excludes all fair use, non commercial, non derivative content. See Commons:Licensing for details.
So please upload logos, CD covers and etc. on English Wikipedia.

Wrong use of categories[edit]

Hi. You are putting redundants categories at Karakoram Highway. The article itself is under Category:Karakoram Highway that is under the rest of categories at the Category Tree. I'll revert your last change. Please take a look to Category:Karakoram Highway (also reverted) and if you have some doubt ask me, but don't edit categories again while you are not used to Categories in Commons. Regards, --Colegota 09:24, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi. There is two relationships in Commons. Categories are linked through Category tree. And articles (galleries) are related by hyperlinks.
You can have relationships in Karakoram Highway gallery as those in description text (at the begining of the page), links to galleries in images description text and even in "See also" section.
Categories is a tree, so you must put on a gallery only one node of every branch of the category tree. For example, in Karakoram Highway gallery is enough (at this moment)with Category:Karakoram Highway. When you click on that link, you see that this category has several subcategories and that is under five parent categories (Category:Sites_along_the_Silk_Road, Category:Xinjiang, Category:Mountains_of_China, Category:Transportation in Pakistan and Category:Northern Areas) all from different branches of the category tree. Putting it all toghether in a gallery is know as "redundant categories".
If you follow up Category:Xinjiang you'll find that it's under Category:Provinces_of_China that is under Category:Geography of China that is under Category:China.
There are also two categories in the Category:Pakistan tree (but different branches) and for example Category:Sites_along_the_Silk_Road is in the "multi-country" Category:Silk_Road sub-tree.
I hope it helps. Regards, --Colegota 10:49, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Feature Pictures: Nominate them !![edit]

Hi Waqas,

I see you have alot of images of scenery from Pakistan. I think you should nominate them on the follwing page to see what the response they get;

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Featured_picture_candidates

Once you have nominated it on the above link place it in the Pakistani notice board section too under the table of "Collaboration opportunities"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notice_board_for_Pakistan-related_topics

Good Luck and continue uploading your great pics. Fast track 08 May 2006

Thank you for the idea, I have been writing a lot on wikipedia in the recent weeks and my "To do" list is quite long, I wasn't sure how to nominate pics or whether anyone could nominate their own pics as well... thanks for the link.
PS: You should create your user page on wikimedia commons as well.
Also, thanks for the link about the Pakistan Notice board, I read your message yesterday but didn't have time to dig into it. You're right, we should organize to work more efficiently. Waqas.usman 11:21, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Image renamed[edit]

An image Landslide.jpg was moved and renamed Image:Landslide_2.jpg because it was uploaded over Landslide.jpg an older image from myself. I'm sending message to all contributors to the renamed image

Deleted files[edit]

Hi, I saw your message on User:Siebrand's talk page. Probably the best thing to do is get your friend to send an email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org (read OTRS) stating the that he is releasing all his images for free use (including commercial) and perhaps specifying the free license he approves of. That is usually all the 'proof' that is needed. At the same time request the images be undeleted, either on Siebrands page (as he deleted them) or Commons:Undeletion requests if he is busy (give specific links to each individual image that was deleted). For the image that was your own, you should just have to clarify that you are the source and author etc (after it is undeleted). Hope that helps :-) --Tony Wills 20:51, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Tony, thanks a lot for the details, and sorry for the late acknowledgment, I was on a long wiki-commons vacation :) I will have my friend email at the above mentioned address. One of the images was my own, I'll request undeletion for that (GNAT at PAF Museum, Karachi) and mention the ownership at the commons page (and provide a link to my personal gallery).

Websites dormant??[edit]

Salam Waqas,

Long time no speak, I havnt been using Wiki since I have been unable to find the time. I hope all is well.

Ps. get your webpages back online! :) --Fast track 00:30, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Wa Alaikum Assalam, sorry for the late response, I had been on a long wiki-commons vacation :) I just logged in to my fotopic.net account and now the pages should be active. I planned to upload them to my other gallery; pbase.com/waqas (I have a paid account at pbase), I've just been lazy because I want to reprocess the images to improve quality.
