Emmawsz[edit]

Hi,

Emmawsz is still uploading images found around the web after being warned with {{End of copyvios}}. Can someone take action?

Best regards, --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 09:23, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Identity fraud[edit]

Davidgodavid has uploaded various pictures claiming to be the author of them (David Lee as mentioned in metadata). He has sent various emails to OTRS providing permissions to use these files (see Ticket:2017081810011211, Ticket:2017081910000276 and Ticket:2017081910000963).
I asked the uploader to send me an email using the address mentioned on the Instagram description of the photographer: <https://www.instagram.com/davidgodavid/>. Shortly after, I received an email from this address which is very likely from the right author. He said, he had never gave his permission to publish these files on Wikimedia Commons.
Consequently, please delete the following files per COM:PCP and ban the uploader Davidgodavid for identity fraud.

I haven't found other files uploaded from this photographer but if someone can also have a look...--Arthur Crbz (talk) 17:51, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Identity fraud through OTRS is one of the more serious accusations that can be made here at Commons. The tickets suggest it's true. Davidgodavid, what's going on here? Guanaco (talk) 19:59, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Requesting blocks on Shiwam socks[edit]

Shiwam Kumar Sriwastaw (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user currently has at least these obvious socks on Commons that haven't been blocked yet:

User Konicha; new puppet of user AntonyFragakis[edit]

Konicha (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user

User Konicha is indefinitely blocked as a sockpuppet (another one) of AntonyFragakis in Greek-language WP. User AntonyFragakis is already blocked indefinitely for sockpuppetry in English-language WP; in Commons he is blocked indefinitely for uploading unfree files, and so are his puppet accounts (see Administrators noticeboard/Blocks_and_protections/User AntonyFragakis). At Commons, user Konicha uploaded two files on Fragakis' hometown, and Fragakis later edited these two files [1] & [2]. Finally, user Konicha uploaded a picture of Antony Fragakis, deleted afterwards. ——Chalk19 (talk) 20:34, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

PS. Note that through Konicha account Fragakis bypassed the 3-months ban imposed on him since May 24th. ——Chalk19 (talk) 20:58, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
✓ Done. I blocked Konicha indefinitely, tagged him and deleted his last remaining contributions as copyright violations (small photos without metadata). Taivo (talk) 08:25, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
