Suppression de fichiers sur Commons[edit]

Bonjour Yann, Suite à une consultation des contributeurs de mon site, il apparaît que certains ne souhaitent pas publier sous une licence autorisant l'usage commercial. Je suis donc dans l'obligation morale de supprimer ces fichiers (tout en en laissant bon nombre d'autres) : Commons:Deletion requests//Audio files uploaded by User:Augustin B.

Si la suppression a bien été validée, en revanche la mise en pratique tarde à venir. Pourrais-tu me donner un petit coup de pouce à ce niveau-là, grâce à ton statut d'administrateur ? D'avance merci, Augustin B. (talk) 11:53, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:LA Girl 1974.jpg[edit]

Tu comptes supprimer tous les fichiers listés ? Il me semble que la dernière série, au minimum, mérite considération et peut être incluse dans le scope... Un seul utilisateur a demandé leur suppression, et je ne crois pas qu'il ait examiné tous les fichiers. --Eusebius (talk) 15:47, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Ah oui, tu as même supprimé la photo qui servait à l'utilisatrice à se présenter sur sa page perso... Bref, pour info, je demanderai (en bonne et due forme) une discussion sur la restauration des quatre dernières de la série, que j'ai incluses par erreur dans la DR et qui sont clairement in scope pour moi (illustration de vêtements traditionnels historiques siciliens). --Eusebius (talk) 16:05, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Utilisatrice ? Plusieurs photos d'un homme ont un commentaire comme « Moi... ». J'ai restauré les images utilisées sur sa page perso. Les photos que j'ai supprimées n'ont pas d'intérêt pour illustrer des vêtements. Un contre exemple du même auteur est File:Sicilian costume 1880s.jpg. Yann (talk) 16:12, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Oui apparemment c'est une femme. OK pour les quelques photos perso, OK pour ton évaluation de l'utilité des photos supprimées, si tu me dis que tu as checké... Après tout, si je les ai nominées, c'est que ça ne m'a pas sauté aux yeux. --Eusebius (talk) 17:33, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

I think Admin Lupo has made a good suggestion on this DR but its your decision. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 11:14, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

I don't mind that it was deleted if there is a better image. However Lupo should have informed me that he reverted my deletion... That's just plain politeness. Yann (talk) 11:51, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry it didn't turn out right. --Leoboudv (talk) 05:35, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Duplication[edit]

There are 2 duplicate images here of the Nazi hunter Efraim Zuroff:

Perhaps the first image should be deleted since it is uncategorised and not used on Wikipedia? Just a suggestion. I had checked for 'Efraim Zuroff' on Commons before I moved the second image here....and found nothing. But in the first earlier image, the person is just called Zuroff. Anyway Yuval added some categories to the second image I uploaded here. Thank You from Canada, --Leoboudv (talk) 05:35, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Done. Yann (talk) 10:23, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Thank You for your help sir. --Leoboudv (talk) 20:37, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Money of Algeria[edit]

Hi Yann, would you like the honour of closing the very last deletion request left over from last June? I did ask Eusebius but after some research he decided to leave the closing to someone else. Can you help? --MichaelMaggs (talk) 20:44, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

According to me, this kind of deletion requests are pure nonsense. I don't understand how banknotes can be copyrighted. Ultimately I don't care much about the result, so I won't fight against people supporing a deletion. Yann (talk) 16:19, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

File:Ans Tesselaar.png[edit]

Dear Yann, one of the files in the 'Category:Athletes from the Netherlands' is the 'File:Ans Tesselaar.png'. This image used to illustrate a page about her on dutch Wikipedia. However, this page has been removed, because it lacked quality. Now a fortnight ago I happened to speak to mrs. Tesselaar and she told me at the time, she doesn't like her picture still to be available on Wikimedia Commons. She would prefer to have it removed too. I promised her to take appropriate actions. Therefore, could you arrange for me that this image will be removed, as requested? Thank you in advance.--Piet.Wijker (talk) 20:08, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Done. Yann (talk) 23:58, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks!--Piet.Wijker (talk) 12:14, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

The Settlers images[edit]

Hi Yann, I just noticed you deleted images from this game as copyright violation. But Blue Byte is a second-party developer from Ubisoft and we got permission from it to use screenshots of it's games. Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 13:04, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't know how the images are, but we do have a template for it. {{Attribution-Ubisoft}} Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 13:28, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh, I don't know about that. I'm not managing to find that information. I understood that any lind of screenshot can be used. And thanks for restoring them. Oh, and please pay attention on the logos. Commons accept logos that are simple enough to do with smple geometric shapes and typeface fonts. Thanks for your time. Cheers!Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 14:01, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

File:Activestills3.jpg[edit]

Hello. I think there were two seperate issues. The nomination for deletion (on grounds of no model release) was rejected, but the lack of permission confirmation from the copyright holder was not resolved. Thus while the deletion listing was closed as keep, the image was later deleted for an usue unrelated to the deletion request. Hope this clarifies the situation. I have redeleted the image, as far as I can tell appropriately deleted per npd. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 01:28, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Self taken images[edit]

Looks like you are on a deletion spree [1] and the bots are picking it up. Can you tell me how a self camera picture violates copyrights? This must be some kind of new rule. Benjwong (talk) 13:55, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

File:Election poster pan-purpel 2007.jpg[edit]

Sorry, but why did you suddenly delete this pic? There was no request for deletion before so that I had no time to get some further information, if necessary. 快樂龍contentquestionconsequence (on de.wiki) 11:05, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Giao Dien XaLuanCom.jpg[edit]

Je me suis un peu fait prendre entre deux feux, j'ai restauré avec un OTRS pending (pour l'histoire de copyright), et proposé à la suppression pour prendre en compte ton speedy delete... --Eusebius (talk) 15:31, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

OK, très bien, merci. Yann (talk) 16:04, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

You might like to comment here, as you suggested. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 18:19, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Wiki.jpg[edit]

On the English Wikipedia, there used to be a file called wiki.jpg that was used for various purposes including greetings. It is currently only used on one live page, but appears more often in page histories. Viewing these pages now means seeing the Cairo Institute of Human Rights logo in place of the Wikipedia one. Since it looks like the image has already been nominated for deletion, I won't do that, but I think that the file should be renamed at the very least unless it is being used somewhere outside the English Wikipedia and keeping it as wiki.jpg is important to that project (the logo is not used on any live page on the English Wikipedia at this time). Soap (talk) 07:55, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I copied your message to the Village pump where it will meet more eyes. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:59, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

fr:René Fonck[edit]

Bonjour,

Vous avez à juste titre supprimé le fichier File:Renep.jpg qui affichait un copyright incompatible, me semble-t-il (on ne peut pas interdire la reproduction, (sans parler de l'esthétique !), alors qu'il existe en outre sur Commons d'autres versions du même fichier. Or le fichier supprimé a immédiatement été rechargé avec un autre nom et par un autre pseudo, probablement un membre de la famille Fonck. Que peut-on faire ? Cordialement, Ji-Elle (talk) 17:24, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Corrigé. J'ai mis un mot à la personne qui a déposé le fichier avec la mention Copyright lui demandant de ne pas le faire. Yann (talk) 18:56, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Alan dershowitz by Latuff.jpg[edit]

Is it really appropriate to close a deletion discussion before the standard one week duration where you have already expressed your support for the deletion and there is clear opposition? I would suggest not. Adambro (talk) 21:29, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I restored the image. The images is in use at en:Carlos Latuff so clearly in scope. Multichill (talk) 22:34, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I am reopening the DR so that it can run the full seven days, at least. After seven days it can be closed and if the closing admin, whoever that may be, decides to delete that decision should be respected and the case taken to Undeletion Requests if anyone does not agree. It is not now appropriate for this DR to be closed by Yann, Multichill or me. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 22:50, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
OK, I am fine with that. Yann (talk) 23:03, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Image restoration[edit]

Salut Yann. It is not always that easy. I actually have already tried File:Refuge des Aiguilles d'Arves, Savoie.jpg on my computer but the results were not good enough. Noise reduction depends on several factors such as type of noise (grain, compression artefacts, photo chip noise), size of the file (the bigger the more successful) and complexity of the image (larger junks of rather evenly distributed colour give a better result). I'll give it another try and then get back to you with tips and results. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 17:21, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Yann. Of course Hans knows much more than I do about removing of the noise, but I remember myself, when I just came here and had no idea what noise is at all. So I took one of your images and removed the noise from the upper, left corner only to show the difference: File:Les Bans ed1.jpg. Please compare this upper left corner with the rest of the sky, and then may I please ask you to delete my edit? Best.--Mbz1 (talk) 02:45, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
There are special programs that reduce noise. I would not mind at all to reduce the noise at your images, but the problem is that together with noise lots of details will be lost too. In other words it is one thing to reduce the noise at the cloudless sky, where there are no details anyway and quite the other to reduce noise at the rocks. Let's wait and see what Hans will come up with. He knows photography and photo shops much better than I ever will. I would also like to tell you that I took many quite unique images in Africa, Antarctica, Galapagos, Midway Atoll, Easter Island and so on. The problem is that they were taken on film camera and I never was able to have any one of them to get FP status. The quality is just not there, when I digitize my old prints. So, I believe that although your images are very good, but in the end you might have to accept that they cannot be promoted. Best wishes and please feel absolutely free to ask me more questions.--Mbz1 (talk) 14:31, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Than I'll work on your images and try to do my best, if Hans would say that he cannot do it. Best.--Mbz1 (talk) 15:46, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

I gave it another try here. The sources are difficult, with as Mila already mentioned hard parts to denoise in the mountains and glacier. I use Corel Paintshop Pro (CPSP) and Neat Image (NI). It is really a matter of setting parameters and trying. I used the jpeg artefact removal on CPSP on a low setting followed by a NI luminance denoising of 25% and a sharpening of 20%. Both techniques are rather gentle to preserve details. Lastly I brightened up shadows and light parts independently and gave a little extra contrast. Maybe it is a small improvement, but still a lot of details were lost. Amicalement. Lycaon (talk) 22:08, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

I took Hans version and tried to reduce more noise from the sky. I also changed contrast a bit. Here it is: File:Les Bans ed5.jpg. I am sure Hans would say that the image is overprocessed :) Best.--Mbz1 (talk) 17:05, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
You are welcome. Please feel free to ask me for more help with your images. Best.--Mbz1 (talk) 21:52, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Yann, you left me no choice. I had to work on your image after you said: "Please don't feel free to refuse" :). Here's the image File:Mer de nuages dans le Rouergue ed1.jpg. I reduced some noise and lost some details on the trees in the process. This is absolutely beautiful image. I liked it very much, and I am sorry I was not able to improve the quality that it could be promoted to become QI. IMO, if you have old images that you like, it might be a good idea to downsample them. Then the noise will not be so obvious. Regards.--Mbz1 (talk) 02:47, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Your images[edit]

Hi Yann,
May I please ask you, if you ever thought about nominating some of your images for VI? Please let me know, if you need help with this. Best wishes.--Mbz1 (talk) 16:17, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
QI images are mostly about quality while VI image supposed to be the most valued image for a particular scope. Let's for example take an image of a bee. Let's say there are two images in the category for this particular bee: one is a great macro, great quality and a very high resolution, but shows only a head of a bee. Other image is not a very good quality, but shows the whole bee. So the first image could be promoted to get QI while the second could be promoted to get VI. We could try this one of yours File:Mehndi Gujarat India.jpg. By the way I will support this image for QI also. It is a litlle bit smaller than required, but I will support it anyway, if you'd like to give it a try. In order to nominate an image for VI, image should be geotagged. May I please ask you to read more about VI here and let me know, if you have more questions or need a help in creating the nomination? Best.--Mbz1 (talk) 20:42, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
No IMO the image is fine, and I will support it for QI. Of course I should admitt that my opinions are often very different from those of the other reviewers. In any case you have nothing to loose. We could also try this one File:Mehndi.jpg. Let's give it a try, shall we? Please add camera location first.--Mbz1 (talk) 20:58, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

You could nominate as many VI as you wish. I added your images to English wikipedia articles and supported one. I am not sure about wedding. The thing is that there are many different people (I mean religion, ethnicity and so on) living in India. I assume they all have different wedding ceremonies. Could you please make the description of the image a litlle bit more specific?--Mbz1 (talk) 23:08, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Yann, I noticed this thread. If you have opther questions regarding VI, you are also welcome to ask me. The reason field is a new field, which was introduced yesterday, it is an optional field, where you can write why, you as the nominator, believes this particular image is the most valuable we have within the nominated scope on Commons. You do not have to specify it.
Regarding links to categories in the scope, there has been some discussions pro and con links in the scope recently. Currently it is drifting towards allowing links to Commons categories in the scope.
Finally, no you do not have to nominate several images for the same scope. If a VI reviewer believes another image is a competitor within the same scope and fulfills the requirement, he can convert the nomination into a most valued review, where competing images undergo a comparative review.--Slaunger (talk) 13:05, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, Kim! I hope all your questions, Yann, were answered, and of course Kim knows about VI much, much more than I do. One more thing. If it will be allowed to link to categories to the scope, just use the name of a category inside the dubble square parentasis. When you added the word "category", the format of the nomination did not work properly IMO. Regards.--Mbz1 (talk) 14:57, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
    • You could nominate for VI as many images as you wish. I believe you could nominate one image for two scopes, but not at once. Maybe it is better to ask Kim about this. I do not think you should wait until your VI is clossed to nominate an image for QI. IMO it does not matter. Just remember that in order for an image to become VI it should be the most valued image in the scope. It is not required to be the highest quality or/and the highest resolution one. Are you sure your cat is, for example? If you do, why? I'm very glad you found out that you images are used so much. That's great! Good luck!--Mbz1 (talk) 23:07, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

File:Zen btn.jpg[edit]

Bonjour,

Je viens de voir la suppression de cette image pour copyright. Certainement j'ai mal compris comment cela fonctionne, peut-être tu pourrais m'aider. Cette image est un logo que j'ai fait pour une webradio qui est la mienne. Je voudrais mettre le logo de la webradio sur la page qui la concerne. Comment je pourrais faire pour que l'image soit plus supprimée pour violation de copyright (car c'est moi l'auteur). Merci à toi :)

Comment[edit]

Dear Admin Yann,

Do you know someone who is very knowledgeable of Indian culture or architecture on Commons? If you do, please feel free to pass this link of someone's English Wikipedia images here to him or her. This person on English Wikipedia is a good contributor (more than 250 photos!)...but I know nothing about the temples or the places of ancient India. I would say his images are a mixed bag of good and 'so so' images. But it may be worth someone's while to transfer some photos here from Wikipedia to WikiCommons. Cheers, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:19, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thank You Admin Yann. The user's Indian pictures are generally good but I think the uploader doesn't know about WikiCommons. I could transfer them to Commons with my TUSC account but I wouldn't know how to classify them. Its a classic catch 22! As an aside, can you consider deleting this image here: File:Tapir Bairdi.JPG The uploader placed an exact duplicate here: File:Wuppertal.JPG but at least that (pretty fuzzy) image is used on one wiki page. The first image is not used at all. And I think having duplicates is discouraged by Commons. Unfortunately, I don't know the deletion codes here. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 05:45, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
    I deleted File:Wuppertal.JPG instead because this is wrongly named. I replaced it with File:Tapir Bairdi.JPG. Yann (talk) 10:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Thanks for deleting the image. As for the 250+ images, I'll see. Right now, I have personal work to attend to. Thanks for the suggestion. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 19:27, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

File:Pffffft.gif[edit]

Hello Yann, this file was used in many pages, even in templates, it would have been nice if You had checked that before deletion, ... --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:05, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I know it was used. But if we decide to delete it because it doesn't meet Commons policy, the fact that it is used does not come into account. Yann (talk) 23:12, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
Very well, if that is so, I hope You continue and delete also the many many other images that are out of scope but used on many userpages, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:19, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Birdy is correct, Yann. It's not necessary to meet Commons scope, but if the image is being used elsewhere it may stay. You can see this here (see File in use in another Wikimedia project) and here. So please, bring it back. Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 03:44, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
