about your warnings[edit]

The warning on this file [1] is wrong. It's a building made during the 19th century. so please do not warn more than necessary. Otourly (talk) 16:07, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

File:Ad van den Berg.jpg[edit]

user jerone2 please do not delete this image

File:CDIC-IMG 8333.jpg[edit]

Thank you for your concern regarding File:CDIC-IMG 8333.jpg, but thus is not a meaningless name: CDIC means "Chaland de débarquement d'infanterie et de chars" and is the name of the ships featured on the image. Since "Toulon harbor.jpg" is not a very good description for this file (it shows a small detail of the harbour (and I prefer English spelling anyway)), I have reverted to the original name.

Welcome, Dear Patroller ![edit]

Hi Warfieldian !

You now have the Patroller right and may call yourself a patroller ! Please take a moment to read the updated Commons:Patrol to learn how Patrolling works and how we use it to fight vandalism.

As you know already, the patrolling functionality is enabled for all edits, not just for new-page creations. This enables us to keep track of, for example, edits made by anonymous users here on Commons.

We could use you help at the Counter Vandalism Unit. For example by patrolling an Anonymous-edits checklist and checking a day-part.

If you have any questions please leave a message on the CVU talkpage or ask for help on IRC in #wikimedia-commons. Ben.MQ (talk) 15:03, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

File:Mariah Carey We Belong Together Angels Advocate US.jpg[edit]

Hello Warfieldian. I uploaded the above image from Flickr, but I had to rotate the photograph before uploading it. I was wondering if you could check the photograph's license in case the bot fails (which I'm pretty sure will, as I have modified the original photograph). Thanks, Novice7 (talk) 04:19, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Academia de Música - CNM.jpg[edit]

It seems you've put this image under copyright violation, when it isn't.

I'm very unhappy about how "wikimedia patrollers" act. They seem to think the more images they delete, the better they are.

I was honest in saying the image didn't belong to me, when other people say it's their OWN and don't get their image deleted.


I hope you reconsider your "action".


Eduarda7 (talk) 21:06, 16 August 2011 (UTC)


I don't think you got me at all. I agree that you apply these measures, but not like this.

Sorry, but I have to ask (since you "forgot" to tell me): How can I "prove" that the image is under a free license?

Eduarda7 (talk) 21:27, 16 August 2011 (UTC)


The image is under a free license because it is on a site!

IF it isn't under one, then this is illegal too (same image on two different sites):

http://esperandoleitor.blogspot.com/2010/06/starry-night-1889-vincent-van-gogh.html

http://www.princetonol.com/groups/iad/lessons/elem/elem67.html


I'm sorry for bothering you further, but this is just unacceptable. I tried to upload that image EIGHT times, just because it wasn't on Commons and there was no indication. Then, finally, I was able to upload it at here.

But now, to "prove" the image's under a free license, I have to contact the institution and FORCE them to write something and lose time??

I'm sorry again, but if you could use your good sense, you would see there is no reason in this. How can someone want to use Wikipedia if they are continually "blocked"??

Eduarda7 (talk) 21:47, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

No, I won't quit that easily.

I will ask again: how can I prove it's under a free license? (Those "links" you gave me were just things to read, they didn't help at all!)

Eduarda7 (talk) 10:06, 17 August 2011 (UTC)


Thank you anyway for your help. Eduarda7 (talk) 15:07, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Brenchley[edit]

Hi Warfieldian,

Was File:William Arthur Brenchley 1863.jpg found on Flickr? If so, do you have a link?

The same uploader has placed two other images on Commons as the same man. None of them match. One is an image of Ulric Dahlgren (File:UlricDahlgren.jpg) where the user merely took the image from here and uploaded it with the new name. He created the article on en Wikipedia with the clearly-named Dahlgren photo before uploading his renamed version File:Col.William Arthur Brenchley.jpg and claimed it came from Flickr (his review failed). His other version also failed his claim that it came from Flickr for File:William Arthur Brenchley.jpg.

I'm trying to determine if the article is a hoax. I haven't found anything on the article subject and he doesn't appear to be in the reference cited. Cheers,
⋙–Berean–Hunter—► 01:52, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi, none of the files that he has uploaded have contained a flickr link and that is why they all failed review. He placed the flickr review tag on them when he uploaded them but made no claim to Flickr as the source in the file description. I doubt they were taken from Flickr. Warfieldian (talk) 02:20, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you...I misunderstood that he was claiming they came from Flickr. I've nominated the article for deletion here.

File: Wrapdress.jpg[edit]

About the personality warning you placed on the file: I followed all the links and read up on the subject, but it isn't clear what I'm supposed to do in response. This is my first time uploading a Flickr file, so I'm unfamiliar with all the ins and outs of it. Am I supposed to do something about the personality warning? Or is the file OK as it stands?

Sorry about duplicate rename request of ANZAC biscuits.JPG[edit]

Sorry about the repeated request for renaming ANZAC biscuits.JPG.

Panoramio images[edit]

Hello Warfieldian

Could you please have a look at Category:Panoramio review needed. Most of them are images about Slovenia where the FOP isn't available. I have reviewed some images but I want to ask you for sure--Hoangquan hientrang (talk) 11:36, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Hoangquan, thanks for letting me know about those. It looks like it will take some time to look through those. Several look like they might not be de minimis and still within copyright with Slovenia's lack of usable FoP. It looks like copyright expires in Slovenia 70 years after author's death. Warfieldian (talk) 12:59, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi Warfieldian, thanks for reviewing. Of course I would have done myself - but I like the bot more. :) Do you know what the problem of the bot at File:Kidnappers arrested Rio.jpg (and the others of this series is? Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 02:21, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Thanks for marking many of the images. Unfortunately, I was busy today with work. Usually a few of the trusted users like Logan, wwcensor and Hongquan mark a few panoramio images but that's about it. An Admin might mark a few too but not many. Not too many trusted users seem to know about panoramio. Thanks again. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 03:07, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Flickr[edit]

Thanks for the message. Please help me then how we can identify these pictures are not thierown picture. I checked before uploading that license is valid for commons. anyway I shall take care in future. Once again thanks.--RajeshUnuppally (talk) 18:06, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your willingness to be proactive in keeping improperly licensed images off Wikimedia Commons. You can check on TinEye.com to see if the image has been published elsewhere and is not likely created by the Flickr account holder.Warfieldian (talk) 18:25, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

File:JasonBonham2010b.jpg[edit]

Help me out here please. You have confirmed that this file is available "on Flickr under the above license on that date", but "there is no proof that the author or copyright holder agreed to license the file under the given license". It seems it cannot be both. Is there some other permission that is needed for some reason?--Sabrebd (talk) 06:47, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

The image is listed as CC licensed on Flickr. However, the author is listed as chickswithguns but the watermark on the image has (C) as Karen Curley. So, even though the license on Flickr is CC, there is no way to be sure this is valid given the watermark demonstrating that the photographer Karen Curley is the proper copyright holder. You would need to go through COM:OTRS to find out how to contact the photographer and obtain permission to distribute the image on Commons or you could use OTRS to contact the Flickr account holder and see if they have some kind of blanket licensing agreement with their photographers. Warfieldian (talk) 14:18, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply, but as a point of fact the watermark says copyright Karen Curley/cwgmagazine.com, which I took to be a claim of copyright for the magazine, not necessary the person. This is not an argument for "other stuff exists", but I notice this picture File:Taylor Momsen - Warped Tour Kickoff.jpg was uploaded by an admin User:Tabercil (no watermark here, but the same claim of authorship), so I will probably enquire as to whether any additional permission was sought for this. Beyond that a look at the OTRS details suggests a pretty horrendously complex and time consuming process. I am also not clear as to whether I need to contact the account holder on Flickr (that obviously works with a licence change) or separately by email (since they is no way of knowing if the account holder really is the magazine), so it would probably really help if you could clarify that for me. I will have to think about whether it is worth the candle, or just to settle for a third rate image or, as is all too common, none at all.--Sabrebd (talk) 16:16, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
It is a fairly common problem that images are uploaded with a valid Flickr license but have watermarks that suggest that it may be copyrighted by someone other than the FLickr account holder. After looking at it again, you do make a good point about the image appearing to be copyrighted in the watermark by the photographer and the magazine. I think this actually does make an argument that the cwgmagazine holds the copyright or is at least authorized by the photographer to license it under CC. I'll remove the 'no permission' tag. Thanks. Warfieldian (talk) 16:39, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Many thanks for that. I may send the magazine an informal email in any case just to check on whether they are the holders of the flickr account and the status of the pictures. I will let you know if I gain any relevant information.--Sabrebd (talk) 16:48, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your review of my request as image reviewer[edit]

THAT TIRED FEELING - NARA - 515538.tif

You think I am a fool. I waste my lot of time to find the images for wikipedia. Days and days months and months. Without perfect reasons my many upload are deleted. They blocked me because of socket puppet of sridhar100. Yes I am the sridhar100. They blocked my first account for vandalism. I requested many times but they wo'nt hear my words. They completely block from wikipedia. I create many accounts. But they also closed as socket puppets. I requested them to complete my article but they refused and taught me like as a fool. That day I feel very sad so I want to retire and abandon all my projects. I closed all my accounts and retired. But In telugu wikipedia the other member requested to rejoin. So I want to work only for telugu wikipedia. My recent uploads only for telugu wikipedia. By your decision I feel very sad. I work for wikipedia by wasting my lot of time. But every where I am refused and abondoned. I tired and agree your decision. If any mistakes or any grammar errors forgive me.--Sridhar1000 (talk) 05:22, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't think you are a fool but I don't think you meet the requirements of a trusted user based on your history of repeated copyright violations. Warfieldian (talk) 14:40, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

File:Министерство культуры Туркменистана.jpg[edit]

Today, this ministry was renamed, and the building remains the same! so I do not see any reason to delete a file! http://www.turkmenistan.gov.tm/?idr=1&id=111017b

Hi! Thanks for contributing this photo to Wikimedia Commons. The reason this file was nominated for deletion is because Turkmenistan has no Freedom of Panorama provisions in their copyright laws and, sadly, this building falls under unacceptable copyright restrictions of no commercial re-use. You can read a little more about the problem at COM:FOP. Thanks again for contributing. Warfieldian (talk) 21:02, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

AJAX patrol[edit]

Hello, I see that you use AjaxPatrolLinks. I have good news for you: AJAX patrolling is now in core! On Wikimedia projects, it should arrive with MediaWiki 1.21wmf5, between 2012-11-26 and 2012-12-5. You should disable this gadget when the new feature change is enabled, because it will become redundant and to avoid double patrolling. Thanks, Nemo 08:03, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

why did you delete my picture Warfieldian[edit]

File:Bobby in the far east.JPG , i mean i took it myself and released the rights to wiki commons and it met all the policies of wiki commons ? just don't understand why you deleted it , please do advice me on how to upload or put a picture on wiki commons

files on wikimedia commons should have educational value. Examples of images that typically do not have educational value: private party photos, photos of yourself and your friends, your collection of holiday snaps and so on. There are plenty of other projects on the Internet you can use for such a purpose, such as Flickr. Such private image collections do not become educational even if displayed as a gallery on a user page on Commons or elsewhere. Warfieldian (talk)

File:Langsdorff.jpg[edit]

Could you add a more detailed source? It says that the photo was taken before 1912, but there is no information about when or where it was published. It looks like a scan of a publication, so it is definitely a published photo, but it's not possible to tell whether the publication was before 1923 or not. Also, as the photo shows a German man, it was likely first published in Germany, which requires information about the photographer. For example, if the name of the photographer was given in the image caption in a book containing this photo, or if the name of the photographer was revealed in any other context within 70 years from the first publication, then we need to verify that the photographer has been dead for at least 70 years. --Stefan4 (talk) 20:02, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
