Hmm, but I made this vector image! --Yuriybrisk 15:11, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Look here - Template:Vector-Images.com. They claimed their own copyright over the work which is indeed in public domain!!! --Yuriybrisk 15:26, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Image talk:Npp zvezda logo.svg --Yuriybrisk 15:36, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
The logotype is copyrighted by R&D PE Zvezda. This covers not only a specific version of the logo, but the creative elements themselves. This copyright also applies to such things as a photo consisting primarily of their logo, a screenshot of the logo on their website, and vectorised versions of the logo.
R&D PE Zvezda are the only ones who can approve a free licensing of their logo, and since your image does not add any creative elements (even though it can be said to add some technical information and usefulness), they are the sole authors. For all intents and purposes, your redrawn, vectorised version is still a copy of the original, which is copyrighted (literally meaning the copyright holder has the right to control the distribution of such copies).
I hope this clears things up. I'm not sure what the Vector-images.com template has to do with this, but there's a big difference between heraldic weapons and flags on the one hand and corporate logos on the other. I also notice that there's some discussion on that template's talk page saying the images may not comply fully with Commons policy.
LX (talk, contribs) 17:12, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
OK, you convinced me, thank you... How we should deal with it? Upload it to local Wikipedias? --Yuriybrisk 17:17, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, unless you can convince the company to publish their logo under a free licence (which doesn't seem too likely), your only alternative is to upload it locally to those Wikipedia editions which accept fair use images. (There's a list on Meta.) LX (talk, contribs) 18:21, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Question...[edit]

Hello Yuriybrisk!

You have uploaded quite useful pics of the Central Armed Forces Museum in Russia! Thank you for that! Do you have more? Greets, High Contrast (talk) 18:57, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Currently, I've uploaded just one photo (Kub's 2P25 backside), all the rest credited to other users. And, yeah, I have more... I'll take some time to upload them in the near (or, possibly, not so near) future. Thanks for understanding. --Yuriy Lapitskiy (talk) 12:32, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

File:Inside of a Kub-SAM.jpg[edit]

Hello Yuriybrisk!

You have changed the description part to SA-11, Buk. Why? Where do you see that it is a Buk-System? The original uploading description site on flickr said Kub, see here. --High Contrast (talk) 13:21, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Mr., I'm confident that's not a 2P25 nor 1S91 vehicle of a Kub missile system. The author on flickr had a mistake (see a tag "buk" there?). --Yuriy Lapitskiy (talk) 16:42, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Inside view of 2P25: [1] [2] [3] ([4], [5])
Inside view of 1S91: [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] ([11])
It's ok. Cool down, boy. Possibly you are right. But I disagree in your cropped version because it is not necessary to denote as a private photo album picture. A anonymous soldier sits in a vehicle where should sit a soldier. If you feel embarassed about this you could have inserted a personalrights-tag. --High Contrast (talk) 19:07, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm cool as an ice :) 1. Non-cropped version has a large white triangle on the right asking to be clipped. 2. Removing of a soldier figure does not affect the equipment inside the vehicle which is the main subject of the photo. --Yuriy Lapitskiy (talk) 23:54, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, Yuriybrisk!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Flickr image request[edit]

Hello Yuriybrisk!

With interest I have recognized your delightful images on your flickr stream. Lots of them would be a great enrichment for Commons! Unfortunately most of them are released under unfree Creative Commons licences, such as "no commercial use". My question aims for releasing some of them under a free Creative Commons licence, for example cc-by-sa. Nice contributions would be: [12], [13], [14], [15], [16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21], [22] and [23]. Of course, I can help categorizing them. Hope for a positive feedback!

Greets and thank you, High Contrast (talk) 07:52, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Sure, why not. Some of the images you mention are already in commons as the File:A Giant and a Dwarf - Mi-12 and Mi-28 at the Mil Helicopter Plant in Panki, Tomilino.jpg is, some of them were discarded by me for uploading because of minor things badly done (people, unproper perspective etc) and some already have a similar images of other authors in commons (File:Buk-M2-MAKS-2007.jpg, File:Tor M2E maks2009.jpg, File:SA-20 missiles.JPG. I appreciate your interest in my photos though and will upload the best of them. --Yuriy Lapitskiy (talk) 10:17, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
Uploaded:
Thank you for releasing those files under free licenses and for uploading them! I have worked on some of them, added/changed categories or descriptions. These files demonstrate good contributions for Wikimedia Commons! Greets, High Contrast (talk) 08:19, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Flickr image request, No.2[edit]

Hello Yuriybrisk!

Can I have your attention for a new image request of 2 photos of you?

These two files can be needed to fill this category. These two image show this vehicle in different views that are not yet on Commons. Perhaps you upload them. Would be great.
Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 16:56, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
