Block of Amin hannibal[edit]

Amin hannibal is continuously uploading copyrighted pictures despite all warnings on this talk page. Can someone block him to avoid further damages? Moumou82 (talk) 09:52, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  •  Not done Amin hannibal's last uploads were made yesterday while a final copyvio warning was issued today by Jeff G. No reason for a block right now, but more copyvios in future uploads will result in a block. De728631 (talk) 18:13, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

User:Calypso2301[edit]

Copyvio images as own work, after warning and block. Lord Belbury (talk) 16:28, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

User:Koreafishnumberone & User:Ricatayakahusta[edit]

checkuser confirmed in enwiki. continuously uploading non-free images or no license images. GY Fan 08:23, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dear administrator. I have requested licensing from the original photographer and copyright holders of the image a few days ago. The copyright holders have agreed on me putting these images on Wikimedia commons image database. I can forward/screenshot contact emails for proof. Please do not delete them, thanks. Koreafishnumberone (talk) 08:32, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The permission needs to be send to COM:VRT. You should mark the files with Template:Permission pending. This does not affect the question whether the files are in scope or not. --GPSLeo (talk) 08:51, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@GPSLeo: Thanks, but please suggest {{subst:PP}} for this type of situation in the future.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 15:01, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
✓ Done. I blocked Koreafish indefinitely due to abusing multiple accounts. But in my opinion Ricatayakahusta can remain unblocked. Uploads are mostly nominated for deletion due to copyright problems. Taivo (talk) 07:52, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The file File:2022년 6월 21일에 발사된 누리호 2차발사.png, which is chain protected due to main page usage in Chinese Wikipedia, is in fact licensed under standard YouTube license and is eligible for copyvio deletion.

@廣九直通車: Thanks, is there another file which a Chinese Wikipedia Admin could use on that main page instead?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 15:03, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Sockpuppets of Rory trains[edit]

User:はらまち, suspected to be a sock puppet from Rory trains. For example, This is an image of Hiregasaki Station, The image posted by User:Rory trains is very similar to the image posted by User:はらまち. In addition, although it is an image posted by User:はらまち[1], since it says "It is the same as the previous photo, but it was changed because the car number was not mosaiced.", It is considered that the image that had the account of User:Rory trains is diverted[2]. In addition, User:Rory trains and User:はらまち have been blocked indefinitely as improper use of multiple accounts in the Japanese version of Wikipedia. --Mister0124 (talk) 12:56, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Unprotect Request File:Flag of Arkansas.svg[edit]

I'm unclear as to why this was protected in the first place and though it says it is semi protected it has been indefinitely fully protected. The file needs some minor tweaks as some stars are not showing up consistently. I'm happy to do so but currently cannot. Enzwell (talk) 11:47, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
