Please note that the editor in this case is a long term photographer in Perth, Western Australia and I and other west australian editors met him at a Fremantle Prison event for wikipedians - as he is not young, please make an effort to be helpful and polite as he has an astonishing resource to provide if he is given a chance. Thanks. [[User:JarrahTree]] (talk) 11:50, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
@JarrahTree: I think it would be more constructive to make these comments on the discussion page than here to me. I am not an admin and will not be making the closing decision, so if you only post here they will not see your comments. Ww2censor (talk) 17:51, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for that - it has been closed - also I have made a comment at the editors talk page, and I think all around it has been clearly established he is not a young editor, and in fact they are his photos - at 40 or 50 years later! cheers [[User:JarrahTree]] (talk) 00:44, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
That does appear to be the case and it looks like he uploaded the image himself. However, his own website information page does have a non-commercial restriction so any new images would really require an OTRS verification they were freely licenced. Ww2censor (talk) 10:02, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for that - will make sure that gets understood! [[User:JarrahTree]] (talk) 11:06, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

deleted images[edit]

I have uploaded three images for the article Stanley Pranin. Unfortunately, those images have been deleted, i think because of confusion about the permission. I have tried to rectify this confusion but to no avail. Stanley Pranin owns the images and he has given me the images and permission for their use in his biographical article. The images are already in the public domain and their use is free. Please remove the automatic deletion so that these images can be inserted in the article for which they are intended.

This is a crosspost of what is essentially the same question asked at Commons:Upload help#Message of Trowbridge Aikikai. I've replied to Trowbridge Aikikai there. LX (talk, contribs) 20:49, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
The images were deleted because you did not provide a suitable licence and you have previously been given plenty of information on how to proceed. You need to verify that the images are in the public domain as claimed and perhaps the most important issues is that most often the subject of a photo is not normally the copyright holder so their permission is useless. The copyright holder will usually be the photographer and it is their permission you need. @Trowbridge Aikikai: Ww2censor (talk) 23:30, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
