New Photos and Content[edit]

Hi Yann - thanks for your message and for flagging this issue with me! I will review all of our info and all of our photos to ensure they are added in the correct manner moving forward. I appreciate your prompt follow up.

Complaint[edit]

Hi, you modified a protected file ignoring the pending edit request. I had lots of modified SVGs on my watchlist, and after fixing some minor issues I ended up with four protected pages in need of an update. Edit requests are a very painful procedure with lots of open tabs for cross-checks, that the request might do what it's supposed to do. On File talk:Cc-white.svg I completely missed—by clicking on [+] for a new section—that there was already an older edit request. The good news is that the new edit request is a simple "replace everything" request fixing more issues on this page. –Be..anyone (talk) 01:19, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi,
I didn't see the request. Done now, but I kept the headers. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:57, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. (I was just wondering how this page ended up on my watch list, problem solved... :-) –Be..anyone (talk) 17:52, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

A QUESTION[edit]

Is This vandalism?Anningia (talk) 09:53, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

@Anningia: Hi,
What do you mean? Are you asking about the request for deletion, or the removal of the tag? A reason certainly needs to be given, and a speedy does not seem to be appropriate here. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:10, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
not sure,but I found some images on a blog which doesn't seem to belong to the uploader--Anningia (talk) 10:27, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
@Anningia: Hi,
Which blog? which images? Could you be more precise please? Regards, Yann (talk) 10:31, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

File:Youra Livchitz (1917-1944).jpg[edit]

Bonjour,
J'ai vu la discussion concernant cette image. Les règles de Commons, un peu trop strictes à mon goût, demandent que l'on connaissent qui est l'auteur et où la photo a-t-elle été publiée la première fois. Autant on peut raisonnablement argumenter que l'auteur est anonyme, mais il est possible qu'elle n'a jamais été publié à l'époque. Il serait aussi possible d'obtenir plus d'infos de la part des Ghetto Fighters’ House Archives, où plusieurs photos sont disponibles : [1], [2]. J'espère que ça peut aider. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 17:59, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Merci. Toute aide est la bienvenue. N'hésite pas à déposer ton avis Ici. --Madelgarius (talk) 18:03, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Même sans élément nouveau, si deux cloches sonnent du même timbre, cela fera vite un carillon... ding, ding, ;-) --Madelgarius (talk) 19:27, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
@Madelgarius: Relis ce que j'ai écris plus haut. Il faudrait au moins montrer que la photo a été publiée il y a plus de 70 ans. PS: le ping est nécessaire seulement sur une autre page que la mienne. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 19:34, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Mouais, on n'est pas rendu... --Madelgarius (talk) 19:36, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
@Madelgarius: Je sais que c'est difficile, c'est pourquoi je proposais de demander à Ghetto Fighters’ House Archives. J'importe pas mal de documents externes, mais je fais attention à ce que toutes les infos soient fournies, pour ne pas tomber sous le coup des personnes pointilleuses sur le droit d'auteur. cf. Special:ListFiles/Yann. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 19:39, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Why you delete the photographs?[edit]

Dear Sir/Madam

After a long, hard & rigorous efforts, I have taken the photographs of Kali Bari Chhindwara and uploaded these photographs in Wikipedia file (Kali Bari Chhindwara) through wikimedia commons. But you have deleted all the files from wikimedia with comment- 17:08, 11 April 2015 Yann (talk | contribs) deleted page File:Kali Bari Chhindwara.jpg (Copyright violation, see Commons:Licensing) (global usage; delinker log).

Sir/Madam May I know in what manner I have violated the copyrights.

Atleast who should inform to me, before deleting the files.

Awaiting your positive reply

Thanks & Regards, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dutta1sandy (talk • contribs)

@Dutta1sandy: Hi,
The files you uploaded are not your own works, therefore you need a permission from the copyright owner (usually the photographer) before importing them here. Please see COM:OTRS for details. This is also the case for files previously published elsewhere, even if they are your own. The files can be restored after the permission is received. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:42, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Phony photo of an alleged lynching[edit]

Regarding File:Horse thief hanging.png, the reason for my requested deletion is Commons:Deletion_policy#Not_educationally_useful. This is obviously a group of cowboys having fun with a straw dummy strung over a crossbar. For examples of real dead people at the end of a rope, go to Lynching.

That recent KEEP[edit]

Hiya! Please take a look at the gallery from which File:Türkischrotfärberei und -Druckerei J.J.Kelly, Mettendorf, Gossau SG, Aquarell von Elisabeth Kelly, um 1850.JPG was extracted. I think we should at least fix these - or educate the user to change them - if they're kept. Face-wink.svg Ellin Beltz (talk) 20:16, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Deleted file[edit]

Hi, Yann! You deleted File:UNEM logo Universidad Empresarial de Costa Rica.jpg at my request (thank you!). There's an OTRS ticket associated with it, #2014121710021423. I don't believe the file should be undeleted - please see the long discussions over the true domain for this institution at w:Talk:Universidad Empresarial de Costa Rica – but would ask you to do what you think best. Could I ask you also to look at the other file mentioned in that mail, File:Copyright Universidad Empresarial de Costa Rica.jpg; that is clearly PD, a US .gov publication; does the OTRS ticket need to be recorded there? Many thanks for your help, I'm a total newbie here. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 23:27, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Projet Poirier[edit]

Bonjour,

Je vois que je ne suis pas le seul à venir pour une suppression.

Les deux conservations que vous avez jugées ici et ici frôlent l'absurde. D'autres cas de doublons sont répertoriés. Il faut avoir une discussion avec Asclepias et Benoit Rochon sur la conduite à suivre mais il était acquis dans notre discussion qu'il n'est pas souhaitable que ces images demeurent en double sur Commons. Là, les excuses tâtillones, on va laisser ça de côté. Louperivois Ψ @ 00:09, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Etant donné que je suis un des admins les plus actifs ici, ce n'est pas surprenant que j'ai des messages sur ma page de discussion. D'habitude, on me reproche des suppressions, pas de garder les images. C'est donc plutôt positif. Mais les remarques sarcastiques n'apportent rien... Yann (talk) 11:52, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Ça n'a rien de personnel. Le fait qu'un doublon soit utilisé par une simple page est assez faible comme motif de conservation. Et qu'elle ait été recadrée de 3 pixels aussi. Louperivois Ψ @ 20:04, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Copyright violations[edit]

Dear Yann,

that's simply not true. I uploaded several pictures that belongs to me. But as I use them for disclosure of my work they appear on film festivals websites. There is a confusing concept there, because you claim that the site has copyright, which is true, but they do not have copyright of the photos, after all, they belong to several different sources that allow it uses for disclosure purposes. Anyway, what I did now was upload photos that I'm sure that never appeared anywhere just to be able to use in wiki pages. I hope there is no problem with that.

Best regards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 187.115.150.68 (talk • contribs)

Hi,
All recent images have a copyright by default, even if not mentioned anywhere. If you give your account, or the list of images, I can give you further details. Regards, Yann (talk) 00:34, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi,
I just realized i was unsigned. That's the list, right: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cainanbaladez (talk • contribs) 21:45, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi, answer to your message on my talk page. I realize, and I will do it with the pictures that were published after I uploaded here. But what about images that i'm abolutly shure that were never published anywhere? Regards. Cainan. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cainanbaladez (talk • contribs) 14:08, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
@Cainanbaladez: Hi,
Images never published before should be fine. If you are a professional photographer, and that your images are often published elsewhere (either in print or on the web), I suggest that you send a general permission to OTRS. That would prevent most deletion requests. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:12, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Kept image[edit]

I'm was surprised you kept this image Commons:Deletion requests/File:Soltam M-71-68 Armada de Chile.jpg considering there is no evidence of permission.

Copyright violations[edit]

Hello Yan

I received a warning from you about the alleged copyright violations. The deletion nomination of several of my uploaded files came to my attention recently when I checked wikimedia. It would be nice if you stalled it down a little since the issue is being contained and I generaly do agree with the complaints and getting myself into the guidelines, specificaly affecting photos. Most of those nominations that got deleted had upload and validation issues and not copyright issues per se. I won't be that careless in the future but please refrain from such direct threats. Thank you.

Sincerely and with best regards TheMightyGeneral (talk) 22:16, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

大量の削除について[edit]

以前から投稿していて、これまで数年間、なんの問題の指摘もなかった、以下のファイルを大量に削除されようとしていらっしゃいますが、

第一に、何を撮して、何が書かれていいるファイルか、理解されておられるのでしょうか。 ロゴが修正済みのものも含まれていますし、著作権とは関係のないものも多く含まれており、理解に大変苦しみます。 個人攻撃なのでしょうか? 画像に書かれている日本語がおわかりなのですか? 何を写して、どこに問題があると 思われるのか、検証されずに雰囲気だけで感じ取って、いきなり削除しようとしているように見えます。 たとえば、JR creditcard 01 ではすべてロゴは修正してありますし、その旨ファイルに日本語で明記してあります。 数年間、なにも問題にはなりませんでした。他の画像も、これまで長く掲載されているものを参考に、問題がないと判断して 掲載したものです。問題点があるならば、どこがどう著作権的に問題なのか、指摘して下さい。あまりに大雑把で、理解に苦しみます。 Asacyan (talk) 17:06, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

QI 4 megapixel[edit]

You participated in a very short discussion on file size, and you, with a few others, decided to implement a decision that was undemocratic and irresponsible. It is completely inappropriate for macro photography. How do I complain? --Charles (talk) 20:02, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I was the first to request a longer voting period. I may agree that the voting period was too short, but I think it would not change anything. And just in case you are not aware, Commons is not a democracy. Regards, Yann (talk) 22:31, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Your reversion of my close on AN/U[edit]

[3]. Yann, I have long experience with non-admin closes. To my knowledge, there is no policy that prohibits non-admins from closing discussions in a manner that reduces disruption and represents community consensus, and while many may not be accustomed to it, most wikis allow it.

If I am incorrect about Commons policy or guidelines, please advise.

Any close may be reversed, including mine; however, when I reverse a close, I normally convert the close to a comment, because it is, in fact, a comment, and it is at least a requested speedy close. I would then explain why I was reversing the close, i.e., why the wiki or community needed it to remain open. It could even be "reversing involved close," but I would hope that you would then review the situation and either comment or close, yourself. I have restored my closing comment as a regular comment.

In this case, I saw that leaving the discussion open was encouraging these users to go back-and-forth with no value to the wiki, except possibly that one of them would finally irritate an administrator enough to be blocked. I'm trying to avoid that. I did research the history of these users. There is a small possibility of preventing Ryulong, in particular, from repeating prior history. He's going to need support, and (in this context) warnings are support.

I also considered adding a comment "non-admin, involved close," for obvious reasons. However, in this case, that would specifically have encouraged one of the users to revert it, possibly defeating the purpose. It's moot now. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 22:20, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Abd, you should work a bit more on content, and let others deal with this kind of issue. Just a friendly advice... Yann (talk) 22:28, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
I work where my expertise takes me. I am here and on WMF wikis for content, but my long-term interest on the wikis has been process, and I go back a long way. I contribute a certain amount of content, I always have. But my goal is to create and maintain wikis such that others create content, and the result of my work on these lines in the past has been far more good content than I could ever have created myself. I'm 70 years old, I won't be here long, but I'm creating a future that will long outlast me. Thanks for understanding that.
You have not explained your re-opening of that discussion. Just saying. --Abd (talk) 04:03, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Yann, it's the duty of proactive members of the community to faciliate the ceasation of hostilities between parties, and I hope that sysops such as yourself desire to be counted among those faciliators. At the moment, the AN/U page faciliates hosilities, not peace. Allowing the discussion to play out without moderation isn't going to make things better. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 02:54, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, Michael. To me, it's obvious that the status quo on Commons is not working. The tendency is to blame incivility on "uncivil people." It's a serious error. Anyone can and will be uncivil, in an uncivil environment. Civility frequently requires moderation. Skilled moderators can make a huge difference in organizational productivity. Frankly, the WMF should hire them.... --Abd (talk) 04:36, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
I agree that many of us admins have been slow responding to requests recently. So I'm certainly not averse to anyone attempting to facilitate peace (although IMO Abd you often do go a long way off topic in overly verbose posts). But I do think that can be done in ways other than thread closure. I think it's fair for users who bring a matter to an admin board to expect admin closure, so we should seek to honour that expectation. Although there is no policy about this, perhaps it is worth adding to the AN instructions (if others agree with me). --99of9 (talk) 03:53, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, 99of9. Yes, I write a lot. People have always had various opinions about that, but it's not the issue here. That close was succinct, and clear. I have long experience with handling user disputes, frequently defusing them. Some users take firm handling. When that doesn't happen, the situation gets bad enough that they are banned. It is not doing them a favor to allow them to fight.
If there is an expectation of an admin closure, the expectation violates long-standing wiki traditions. Current procedures explicitly allow non-admin closures when tools are not needed to implement a closure. Non-admins may close DRs with keep, for example, with expectation of consensus. I've done more than close a DR, I've actually reverted some. I've reverted RfCs on meta, or speedy-closed them, or closed them as stale, etc. Because anyone can revert a closure, it's harmless. However, if one reverts a closure, one is taking responsibility for the effects. A disruptive close -- or a disruptive revert of a close -- could deserve a warning.
The discussion being on the AN page means that it will be seen by administrators. If I incorrectly close a discussion, an admin will see that close and revert it. My close can actually increase attention. My close is basically a claim that continued discussion is not necessary, so this serves all the administrators who might think the same way. I would never close a discussion expecting lack of consensus.
My view, in general, is that, as users, we do not adequately support administrators. Instead, we expect them to resolve our petty squabbles and complain bitterly when they don't, or when they get it wrong. Many of the disputes I see, particularly on AN/U, require research to understand. I do that research and present it. If one isn't interested, fine, there is no obligation to get involved. The result of that disinterest, if it's collective, though, is continued disruption. It's obvious: it is essential that the community assist. What is important is that such assistance be aimed toward creating and maintaining a civil environment on Commons. If it is just more "get rid of the bad users," it will just increase and maintain toxicity.
Yann, this is your talk page. Any continued discussion of this here is with your sufferance. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 04:36, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

G&K Services photos[edit]

Hi,

I totally understand why the photo uploads were rejected. My apologies.

I do have a question: G&K wants to upload those photos to Flickr and mark them with a CC License. Does that work?

I want to be clear on how to approach this so I don't get blocked.

Quick question[edit]

What do I need to do to get so many featured, quality and valued images like you have. --Anningia (talk) 10:52, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

@Anningia: Hi,
Actually I don't have so many featured, quality and valued images. Some contributors have hundreds of featured pictures, and thousands of quality or valued images. ;o)
If you want to make pictures of featured quality, you need a good camera (probably a en:DSLR), and some photographic skills and knowledge. All you need to know is available in Wikipedia. ;oD
Other contributors create SVG graphics using software like Adobe Illustrator or Inskape. Others (like me) restored old pictures and documents. There you first need patience and some technical skills with photo editing software, like Adobe Photoshop or Gimp. I hope this help. Please tell me if you have more questions, I would be happy to help. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:26, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
I've got a Nikon camera, and it makes quite good pics, but I always have to shrink the images I want to upload, because my internet connection crashes if I upload pics which are too big. As for the quality of the pics, most of mine are quite ok and without blurr, but if I photograph something which moves then some blurr is expected. --Anningia (talk) 14:22, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
@Anningia: For big files, you can use this script: User:Rillke/bigChunkedUpload.js. I use that for any file bigger than 15 MB, and it works much better than the UploadWizard. I usually save my pictures with 98% or 99% compression to minimize compression artifacts. Actually, the automatic mode is rarely the best to produce good pictures. For moving subjects, you have to adjust shutter speed vs. aperture and ISO setting. See also photography, camera, etc. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:01, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
Can I upload some of my photos so that you can see their qualities? Also can I upload videos here? And if yes, what formats are acceptable? --Anningia (talk) 07:26, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
@Anningia: Sure. For the videos, see Commons:Video. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:56, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Your block of User:Meryllid[edit]

User talk:Meryllid does contain a warning of block for uploading copyvio, but it was from 2012. The AN/U report did mention warning with a diff, but that was on en.wikipedia, a warning again by NeilN there.[4]. Then there were three copyvio notices, without warnings, recent, the last two by NeilN.

NeilN did not warn the user here before going to AN/U. The only recent warning was by NeilN and it was not on Commons, but on en.wikipedia. It referred to "you've been warned enough on Commons," but that could only refer to the single warning in 2012. There is visible evidence of content conflict between NeilN and Meryllid on en.wikipedia. That may cause a warning to be disregarded. The offense justifying block appears to be the uploading of a single file after an alleged warning that was not on Commons.

I looked further. Meryllid uploaded the poster for the film, w:en:Are All Men Pedophiles? here -- I think --, and it was deleted for copyvio (properly), in May, 2012. He uploaded it to Wikipedia, and it stands, for fair use in the article. The warning on en.wiki by NeilN was not for an image upload there. It was for alleged addition of copyrighted material to Wikipedia. In fact, this was not actual copyright violation (because of the NC license.) It was a WMF policy problem. The edit, was using the file he uploaded here (that you just speedied). That file, or a version of it could be used on Wikipedia under a fair use claim, and it is very possible that the owner's permission could be obtained for hosting here. It's a picture of him, being used to illustrate an article about him. NeilN was revert warring with Meryllid on a number of articles. We cannot get into Wikipedia content issues, but it appears that a Wikipedia conflict has been brought here.

I'm not seeing adequate cause for a block here. The user has uploaded files with iffy licenses, i.e, what a naive user might think are okay. An NC license may well seem usable to such. This user needs support, not blocking, such as an explanation of the NC license issue. Will you consider helping this user? I will support the user, I'm willing to do the heavy lifting of explaining all this, but wanted to give you first opportunity to hold out your hand. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 02:25, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

OK fine, I unblocked him/her. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:08, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Abd, oh come on. Copyright notices are warnings. To pretend otherwise is disingenuous. I count at least seven of these on the user's talk page and three more derivative works notices. And please don't spread incorrect information about the English-language Wikipedia's fair use policies. There is no fair use for images of living people per NFCC #1. [5] If you want to help, please make sure the user has the correct info. --NeilN (talk) 12:24, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Actually, that's correct about fair use for people; but the problem is not copyvio. It's about WMF policy on non-free images, and this comes into conflict with the purposes of the projects, so projects must mediate and choose. Not a matter to be resolved here. The most straightforward solution for that photo is to gain permission from the copyright owner. My biggest concern is that the user does not have email enabled, and may end up uploading without being aware of what transpired.
No, copyright notices are not warnings unless they say so.
Now, I suspect that the user didn't see what had happened. Email is not enabled. There may be a language problem. To top it off, the user was just indef blocked on enwiki. The blocking admin noted that it is "indef" as in "until resolved," not "indef" as in forever. The block reason was one often used against SPAs, which is sad, but if the user becomes communicative, it might work out okay. However, I can't help the user on en.wiki, especially with no email enabled. So, Yann, thanks for that unblock, it was a nice gesture. It didn't work this time, and I'm sorry for any extra trouble.
I have written to the subject of the photo you just deleted, to see if he will release under a proper free license. Maybe some good will come out of this. --Abd (talk) 04:41, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
@Abd: "Wikimedia Commons takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing." - plain English. --NeilN (talk) 15:21, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Okay, pinged. I looked for such warnings, and believe I described the history accurately. But it doesn't matter. There was no actual copyright violation, I now know that. I contacted the subject of the photo, the apparent copyright owner. Maryllid had permission. However, she had no clue how to handle this, and did anyone help her? To be sure, she was not communicative. Consider, though, how she would read that warning! She's not violating copyright. What she was doing was violating Commons procedures (and there may be other details.) It will take a little time to get this sorted, and I'm pretty busy elsewhere. Maryllid doesn't have email open, but I believe the owner has her email, so I may be able to establish supportive communication. Again, Yann, thanks for your good faith unblock. When I have OTRS arranged, if the owner agrees, I may ask for another action. --Abd (talk) 19:59, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Ethnicity of U.S. rampage killers.png[edit]

Hi Yann, I wasn't sure what the problem with this is. Could you elaborate please? Do I need to remove the usage first before nominating? The file in question has no source for the information on the ethnicity of perpetrators that it claims to be a graph of. Several other files by this author also had no source for their claims and were removed from the en project. I'll be watching this page for a response, but I'm more active on en. Thanks Padenton (talk) 18:46, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@Padenton: Hi,
Yes, as it is currently used, it won't be removed. As mentioned in the DR, it should be concerted to SVG and replaced. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:44, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Mission to Mars[edit]

Hello, Yann, you deleted a photo of mine and I want to know why? That still shot was from a Public Domain trailer on Internet Archive. It is an honest mistake, I'm sure. Please put it back as soon as you receive this message, or did you erase it from Wiki completely? GEOGOZZ (talk) 15:40, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

@GEOGOZZ: Hi,
This image is not in the public domain. It is under a copyright by the film producer. Please read COM:L before uploading any file. Thanks, Yann (talk) 16:40, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yann, please, take a look at this page. I made a photograph on movie maker of a "PUBLIC DOMAIN" trailer. It is my photo. You will see that this trailer is in Public Domain. Look below the video. It reads, "PUBLIC DOMAIN Mark 1.0." What part of that don't you understand? https://archive.org/details/MissionToMarsTrailer Thank you, GEOGOZZGEOGOZZ (talk) 20:33, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

@GEOGOZZ: Hi,
Sorry, but no. archive.org is not a reliable source, and in this case, it is clearly wrong. You can ask other admins at COM:UDR, but I am pretty sure you will get the same answer. Regards, Yann (talk) 22:26, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Yann, but I frankly don't think it is worth the effort. To me, Wikipedia is missing out on a great resource. Have a great day! GEOGOZZGEOGOZZ (talk) 01:14, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

OTRS Behindwoods[edit]

For this file whose source is available at Behindwoods, the OTRS ticket number was #2013081810003844. I've sent an email to its team for using this content and want to upload it after the OTRS ticket link is sent to my email. Can you please verify whether #2013081810003844 applies only for that particular file or for all images of the film related / other celebrity related events available in Behindwoods.com just like "Parties & Events" in Bollywood Hungama?

Kindly do the needy and answer my query within a reasonable time, preferrably ASAP... :) Pavanjandhyala (talk) 12:48, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
