--Владимир Нимчевић (talk) 19:26, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

@Владимир Нимчевић: The offered permission appears to be 46 pages of typed, printed, and scanned information on 100+ files. Please send hyperlinks, a file with them, or a link to them.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 19:45, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

droits auteurs contesté par JCB pour image : Claude de Romefort, autoportrait 1942 jpg et l'image supprimée sans vérification préalable.[edit]

L'image file:claude de Romefort autoportrait 1942 jpg a été supprimée par JCB depuis le 16 février sous prétexte qu'elle n'était pas sous licence. Un mail et même plusieurs ont été envoyés par les ayants droits pour deux images, celle mentionnée ci dessus et une autre intitulée claude de Romefort, jugement dernier novembre 1976 détail. Cette dernière ne pose pas de problème, l'autre par contre, celle supprimée, a fait l'objet de demandes complémentaires qui ont été produites par mail,en même temps que la seconde mais la mention n'a pas été mise à jour. Voila une semaine que j'ai renvoyé un mail resté sans réponse et que je n'ai aucune réponse pour savoir si ces mails envoyés pour autorisations par les ayants droits ont bien été reçus et conservés. Que faire pour rétablir cette image ? que faire pour que JCB ait accès à ces mails et rétablisse cette image? je vous remercie--Tpgrieg (talk) 09:57, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour, j'écris partout, je suis perdue! Je viens de trouver cette otrs notice board pour renouveler ma demande. Le 16 février dernier, JCB a supprimé cette image (cf sujet) sous prétexte que cela faisait 30jours qu'il fallait confirmer l’autorisation de licence. Cela avait été fait mais la mise à jour n'a pas suivie. Il y a eu un premier envoi de mails des ayants droits, puis à nouveau des nouveaux mails en complément ainsi que le rajout d'une nouvelle image nommée Claude de Romefort jugement dernier 1976 détail jpg. Celle ci n'a pas eu de problème tandis que la première a conservé sa mention otrs sans mise à jour. Pourquoi ? comment faire pour la rétablir? je passe mon temps à expliquer dans différents lieu du labyrinthe de wikimédia et wikipédia, pas de réponses, pourquoi? , merci de votre aide , je suis désespérée.--Tpgrieg (talk) 10:31, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

@Tpgrieg: Il ne faut pas se désespérer pour si peu! Avec l'e-mail il devrait y avoir un numéro de ticket. Si vous l'avez, on pourra contrôler. Normalement il faut plusieurs mois pour vérifier une authorisation et, une fois fait, le fichier est remis où il était. --Ruthven (msg) 12:09, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Помогите пожалуйста с этим файлом https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Косенко_Віталій_Анатолійович.jpg, мне разрешили им пользоваться, но я так понимаю письмо от автора так и не пришло, а прошло уже пару лет, как мне сохранить его?

A question on partial uploads[edit]

Quick question on the OTRS process. I've reached out to a copyright holder about submitting an image they have onto Commons, and they're somewhat reluctant about handing over the whole image. They are, however, fine with uploading a portion of the work. The image itself is a group photo, and I'm after a cropped part of it to use as a portrait for a historic figure on Wikipedia- this is the bit they're willing to crop and donate.

Is this acceptable to you guys, or does he have no choice but to upload the whole image? What's the process/consensus here? I'm new to all this and I'm not sure where else to ask. - ක - (talk) 04:52, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

@Jesuschristonacamel: That is fine, as long as the EXIF metadata survives the cropping. If it doesn't, they can email us the whole file with EXIF metadata, and we can apply that to the crop.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 05:25, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Cheers! I'll get him to submit an OTRS ticket soon.- ක - (talk) 05:46, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Quick follow-up: do I get him to mail you guys the image through OTRS, or will him uploading the image on Commons be ok? The entire image is on his personal website with a watermark. Additionally, how do you verify the uploader is who they say he is unless they submit an OTRS ticket? - ක - (talk) 16:12, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Bruce R. Griffith (from Zeno.ru)[edit]

Mr. Bruce R. Griffith sent permission to allow me to upload his images to Wikimedia Commons to use on Wikipedia "and elsewhere", when this OTRS ticket 🎟 has been process I would like to request the volunteer one or two months from now to notify me of this fact on my talk page and tell me what template I should use. This ticket has no particular haste, I am working on a couple of large projects ans importing these images would disrupt them, but I plan on being done after 60-something days so don't hurry with it. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 06:30, 28 April 2018 (UTC)

Bilder Mommer[edit]

Wertes OTRS-Team,

sorry, dass ich mich jetzt erst melde, ich habe halt heute erst bemerkt, dass einige Bilder aus dem Artikel Willy Mommer von JuTa gelöscht wurden, da angeblich keine Freigabe vorhanden war. Ich als derjenige, der diese Bilder hochgeladen hat, bin diesbezüglich auch nicht informiert worden.

Fakt ist jedoch, dass ich vor längerer Zeit mich an die Ausarbeitung des Artikels de:Willy Mommer beteiligte. Über Benutzer:Dolores18, die mir bekannt ist, bin ich an einigen Bildern gekommen, die aus ihrem Archivbestand sind. Diese habe ich für sie am 6. Februar (!) hochgeladen und ihr zugleich die Freigabeerklärung geschickt, die sie wiederum ein Tag später ordnungsgemäß an das OTRS-Team weitergeleitet hat! Eine Kopie ihres Mails an das support-Team liegt mir vor.

Da bis zum 7. April auf diesen Bildern noch keine Freigabe vermerkt wurde, schrieb ich AKA an und dieser versicherte mir, dass er die Priorität von "Normal" auf "Höher" gesetzt hat. Trotzdem sind die Bilder offensichtlich nicht freigegeben worden, obwohl alles rechtens gelaufen ist!

Deshalb verstehe ich die Verzögerung beim OTRS-Team insgesamt und letztendlich auch die Löschung nicht und bitte Euch freundlichst um Klarstellung dieses Problems und Wiederherstellung der Bilder mit ordnungsgemäßer Freigabe.

Es handelt sich um diese Bilder: File:Männerquartett Eupen 1959.jpg, File:Männerquartett Eupen 1959 (2).jpg, File:Plattenhülle Männerquartett Eupen DNB 30.005.jpg, File:Willy Mommer, jun..jpg, File:Willy Mommer, jun. (2).jpg.

Deleted Photo has since submitted permission letter[edit]

Hi, A photo that was placed on Commons in September 2017 and was taken down on November 6 2017 has since submitted an addtional permission letter which hopefully meets WikiCommons standardsand requirements. The File name is File:Portrait of Alfred Spector.jpg and you can find the deletion page here; It was deleted by editor Jcb. I am asking that the photo be reinstated onto Commons with an OTRS tag so that it can be added to the following Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Spector. Please let me know if there is any problem. Thank you. SteelersSuperBowl (talk) 11:06, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

@SteelersSuperBowl: Did the photographer from Ticket:2018043010006165 take this photo, too?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 00:53, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Forwarded emails[edit]

Hi, How do we deal with a forwarded email, when a direct answer is not possible. There is a concrete case just now, which could make a difference for a lot of files: Commons:Deletion requests/Getty Images photos from the TechCrunch Flickr account (see at the bottom). Regards, Yann (talk) 15:49, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

@Jeff G.: that seems to make no sense? That's the address for the Domain Name System administrator. Not only do they nothing about the issue at hand, OTRS can't contact Getty directly and/or has considerably worse odds of getting a useful answer.
My proposal was that I create a new mail address, receive the mail on that address and give Yann the login details for that mail account. Yann can share it with other OTRS members, just be careful you don't get locked out if everyone tries to login at the same time. - Alexis Jazz 18:51, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz, Yann: If we have a forwarded email message, one way to verify it is genuine is to email the original sender. If we have to go through a dnsadmin, postmaster, or webform to do that because the target organization is purposefully opaque, I think we should try.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 02:14, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: small chance that'll happen..
If I give OTRS the login details for a mail account, you will be able to see the mail sitting in the inbox of the account, including headers. Afaik, that can't be faked. (no more or less than a mail direct to OTRS, which can't be faked either afaik) It's strange how we blindly believe any new user who uploads images as "own work" as long as Google can't find them, but here we must jump through incredible hoops because I can't be trusted, Yann can't be trusted, you can't be trusted, nobody can be trusted. Even though none of us lie or has any incentive to lie. - Alexis Jazz 04:14, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: Do you have a pair of URLs for the same photo on Getty and TechCrunch's Flickr I could ask about?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 15:39, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: I could find such a pair, but Getty is infinitely more likely to respond to a question from a potential customer as opposed to Commons asking for freebies. So please, don't contact them. - Alexis Jazz 22:08, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: I am not trying to reach Getty, Alexis does. And he is right that, in that case, we have to contact them through a form, so they will probably answer to the requester only. A special email account may be a solution, or may be someone has a better idea? I would trust Alexis in this case. He could also copy the full header to OTRS for additional proof. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:42, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Uploading images for the owner[edit]

If someone has given me permission to upload their photos and promotional event posters to the public domain for use in a wikipedia article, how do I go about doing that? Since I am not the owner of the image, I have to select - "This file is not my own work." and then provide a source, author, and why I "have the right to publish this work" which is either selecting a Creative Commons license that the copyright holder published the work with, or another reason with a valid copyright tag, and the date the work was created or first published. I don't have all this information, just the image and a statement from the owner: [we] own the copyright 100% of all the posters we create. Can I upload these on their behalf? Thank you!! --Beccalyn137 (talk) 21:14, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

@Beccalyn137: Welcome. It sounds like {{CC0}} would fit your purposes if they truly want to release the works into the public domain. If, instead, they just want to use the works on English Wikipedia, please see en:WP:F.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 03:46, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
@Beccalyn137: No. They must release their work under a free license. They will still own the copyright to the work, but they must allow anybody to use it for any purpose. Otherwise we cannot host them on Commons. Storkk (talk) 12:16, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Being granted permission to upload all media by a deceased author[edit]

I would like to know if it's possible to be granted permission to upload all media by a deceased author via the usual OTRS. As in, an email is sent to the OTRS team that grants the permission to upload the media of an author under a CC license. In this case Ayik Umar Said. Aumars (talk) 10:38, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Permission is granted by the CR holder (usually the photographer) instead of the one in the picture. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 16:42, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
If you mean photographs made by Ayik Umar Said being the photographer, we need a permission by email coming from his heirs. De728631 (talk) 21:02, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
I think he's asking about Ticket#2018052010004282. It claims to be "CR Holder" but is not clear about if it's CRH (by what means) or photographer. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 01:30, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

2007040710013293[edit]

Can somebody pelase check out ticket:2007040710013293 and see if it is a legit ticket, since it has been added in plaintext by Céréales Killer in 2007 on the followig files:

I'm currently at work, and don't want to open OTRS. --Jonatan Svensson Glad (talk) 09:02, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

  • @Josve05a: it's a real ticket but it appears to contain no actual license. It's a shame, because it could probably have been fixed at the time. Storkk (talk) 09:24, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
    • @Storkk: Would you agree that it would be appropriate to tag these with the appropriate "OTRS recieved (but insufficient)" tag? --Jonatan Svensson Glad (talk) 17:48, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
      • @Josve05a: Not sure there's much point, given the ticket is 11 years old... but it might be worth a shot if a francophone user wants to reply to that ancient ticket, and see if the film studio wants to specify a free license. Storkk (talk) 17:56, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
    @Josve05a, Storkk: Apparently sending the email failed:
          A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
          recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed <omissis>
But original copyright holder said "libre de droit", which is equivalent to our "public domain". --Ruthven (msg) 07:17, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

John Ferguson from Sportstune.com[edit]

John Ferguson who has a website that hosts a fairly large number of images of Chinese coins and charms has confirmed to me that he had sent permission to the OTRS team of Wikimedia Commons, he said that he didn't receive an automatic reply and that he didn't get a ticket number, can someone confirm that Mr. John Ferguson did indeed sent permission? (or at least that this e-mail was received by the servers? The e-mail address he may have used would've either have been "building@architectsoffice.co.uk" or "john@sportstune.com", I just wish to confirm that the ticket would've indeed been received by the OTRS.

If a special template will be created, could the maintenance category for all of his images be Category:Images contributed by John Ferguson (Sportstune.com)? Could someone then notify me on my talk page once the ticket has been processed? --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 21:22, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

@Donald Trung: Yes, we got a zip file from him on the 14th in the permissions-commons queue, creating Ticket:2018051410008727 and an autoreply; please ask him to check his spam folder.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 21:34, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
Alright, I just wanted to confirm the fact that the e-mail actually made it through as I was afraid that he wouldn't have passed your spam-filters or something, is there something missing with the permission or is the way he sent it "good to go" (after the mandatory waiting time, of course) if he didn't give the permission correctly I will notify him. As I have to sleep now I won't be able to reply to this thread soon. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 21:41, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
@Donald Trung: A lot of images were provided, its going to take a while for a volunteer to look through the coins and the website to identify which coin is which (they weren't named in the file names). I've started a cursory glance but its going to take me at least a week to go through all of these. - Cameron11598(talk) 21:20, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
On second thought I have no idea how to even name these coins based on the information from the website :/ Maybe I'll let someone else identify and upload the coins. - Cameron11598(talk) 21:24, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
@Cameron11598: from what I can tell all the scans are John Ferguson's and illustrations like the ones found here aren't his. Note that at the bottom of this page he specifically states when images aren't his, as all the scans look similar I suspect that those are all his. Usually people credit others when they use their images so you could ask him just to be certain. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 21:29, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
@Donald Trung: That doesn't really help me come up with a naming scheme as there are multiple versions of the same "named" coin. Some of them have descriptions some don't so it makes it difficult for me to come up with a viable naming scheme for these images as I'm not an expert on Chinese Coins (I may be on the path to becoming a historian by my area of emphasis is Latin America US relations.) - Cameron11598(talk) 21:39, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
@Cameron11598: personally I go with the inscription + the name of the author + number if the mint mark or script type is unknown, see Category:Media contributed by East Asian Cash Coins, I prefer not to use an inscription alone as one coin could have many variants. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 21:49, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Likely fraudulent permission provided to OTRS[edit]

You are free to use for many purposes without worrying issues licenses because this picture is TRUE FREE.", it's just dripping with sarcasm), but the date on the site ("SUNDAY, MAY 1, 2005") seems to have been faked (as the URL says 2018/05), the blog has no other posts, the author is claimed to be "Mike Dichen" (but what does a G+ profile prove?) and the photo as shown there is cropped, Tineye finds the uncropped photo in various places, none of which seem to be the actual source.

Si te han dado el permiso escrito, hay que comprobarlo y tienes que enviarlo a permissions-es-at-wikimedia.org, con la licencia elegida y en nombre de los ficheros (puedes también indicar como referencia la página Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Alek25). --Ruthven (msg) 07:11, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

File:Tabunshikov.gif[edit]

This is the uploader's last remaining contribution. She added OTRS-permission herself. Is it valid or fraudulent? Please confirm or nominate for deletion. Taivo (talk) 09:52, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

@Taivo: The permission by @Lvova appears to be valid, but in retrospect it should have been added by an OTRS member. However, that was six years ago.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 12:27, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G., Taivo: If the permission is valid, in those cases you should also delete the entry from the list at User:Krdbot/af69. Thanks --Ruthven (msg) 07:21, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
The problem is that KrdBot log starts in April 2013, but the file was uploaded and the ticket number added in 2012, so it is missing in logs. Taivo (talk) 07:33, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
@Ruthven: It's not there for the reason cited by Taivo. I hope @Lvova is not still advising uploaders to add permission themselves.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 11:56, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
It was the standart reply (Response:Ru-Достижение результата) until creation the Response:Ru-Достижение результата (Викисклад), that is until 2013. Анастасия Львоваru (ru-n, en-2) 13:55, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, the same happened with Italian queues: before we used to ask customers to add the template themselves. Now all queues should be aligned on that, but it's a relatively recent change. --Ruthven (msg) 16:10, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
@Lvova, Ruthven: Thank you both.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:23, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

Soubor:Show_Ivan_with_the_drawing_by_Pavel_Rampir_of_the_Alsterufer_attack.jpg[edit]

Hi,

id like to ask about waiting for approval of photo on page: https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Otto_Schwarz File: Show_Ivan_with_the_drawing_by_Pavel_Rampir_of_the_Alsterufer_attack.jpg.

Thansk to answear.

@Viki80: The only ticket I can find which mentions "Alsterufer" is Ticket:2018041210013299, but that is resolved and doesn't mention the filename above. Do you have a ticket number? Looking further re File:Ivan Otto Schwarz.jpg (which may be the same photo), we have been waiting since 19 January for permission from artist Pavel Rampir in Ticket:2018011610010147. While we wait, would a bust or headshot crop of the latter file suffice? That would be a vast improvement over File:Ivan Otto Schwarz.png.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 13:21, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Email has not been delivered from artist Mr. Rampir yet? Is It possible to load this photo again? Thx to answear VW.

Uploads by Hiba Falah[edit]

Hi, This user has uploaded posters and added an OTRS permission. However it seems that the permission was not validated by an OTRS volunteer. Knowledge of Arabic would be useful. See e.g. File:بوستر ثار غليص.jpg, and User:Hiba Falah/MyTag. Thanks, Yann (talk) 10:54, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

@Yann: I have responded at Commons:Deletion requests/File:بوستر ثار غليص.jpg. --IagoQnsi (talk) 02:33, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
User:Hiba Falah is the copyright holder. We had a meeting with the company Arab Telemedia Group last year, and they agreed to release some posters. Now, in order not to send a new email for each poster, it was agreed to let User:Hiba Falah handle the uploads. Any Company Poster not uploaded by User:Hiba Falah is actually a copyright violation. This was all in the ticket, in Arabic :) . I just updated the ticket. --Tarawneh (talk) 11:58, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

File:RenateAnderl.jpg[edit]

Hallo, die Uploaderin hat die permission mail in die Bildbeschreibung kopiert, wenigstens schaut es so aus, das Bild wurde trotzdem mit Löschung gedroht. Könnt ihr bitte überprüfen, ob eine entsprechende Mail von der Urheberin im OTRS-Team aufgeschlagen ist und gegebenefalls die Mail aus der Bildbeschreibung löschen (lassen) - sie enthält private email Adressen. lg --Herzi Pinki (talk) 06:28, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Hello, the uploader has copied the permission mail in the image description, at least it looks like the picture was still threatened with deletion. Can you please check whether a corresponding mail from the author in the OTRS team is open and, if necessary, delete the mail from the image description - it contains private email addresses.

Bruno Motta[edit]

I find this case slightly too complex to leave to FlickreviewR.

w:pt:Bruno Motta is a comedian from Brazil. (registered here as Special:Contributions/Brunomotta) File:Bruno Motta.jpg is his photo and he also has File:BrunoZé03pq.JPG. https://twitter.com/brunomotta is his Twitter account (verified by Twitter), also linked on his website.

There was no way to link https://www.flickr.com/photos/brunomottafotos/3710574781/ to him, he is in the OTRS process but I've been talking to him and I suggested he would link the Flickr account on his website/Twitter and change the license on Flickr. He linked the Flickr account on his Twitter and changed the license for both photos to CC0.

I will still let him go through OTRS, even if only because we generally require that for notable people editing Wikimedia projects. But I think File:BrunoZé03pq.JPG and File:Bruno Motta.jpg can also just be reviewed now since they have a compatible license on Flickr and the Flickr account can now be linked to him via his verified Twitter account. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 07:44, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Case appears to have been resolved. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 03:36, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

File:Jallal Rapper 2017.jpg[edit]

This may be nothing, but could I ask for a check on the permission received and logged for this file (Ticket:2017040910001158), from Ursus Magana? It all appears to be in order ... except that the author of the image is, according to the EXIF data, not Ursus Magana but Alex Hallajian. Also, I note that the email address used by Magana is not associated with his website. Ping my esteemed colleague Arthur_Crbz in case he can shed light here. Some files from this uploader may need closer scrutiny. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 12:50, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

I will check Groetjes --Neozoon (talk) 18:19, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi, Justlettersandnumbers - it appears your esteemed colleague worked his magic, and the image has been cleared through permissions. I'd say it's safe to consider this case RESOLVED. Atsme 📞 00:53, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Er, no, esteemed colleague Atsme, it isn't resolved – Neozoon has sent an enquiry, but no reply (that I can see) has been received (thanks, Neozoon – I could and should have done that myself, I now realise). I don't know if he/she has also contacted Alex Hallajian, but there's a note saying he/she'd do that too. I'm concerned about this file because it appears that the uploader has been less than 100% transparent in some other uploads – see. e.g., Commons:Deletion requests/File:Diane Tuft 2017.jpg. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 11:51, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Hmmm...I did not see the most recent correspondence when I first checked the ticket - but I see it now. Apologies. Atsme 📞 13:34, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Files uploaded by Anantashakti[edit]

File:Lord hanuman singing bhajans AS.jpg

This file was originally uploaded in 2007, so maybe the way Commons verifies licensing over the years has changed since then. The file is licensed as {{cc-by-sa-2.5}} and it is "Copyrighted to Himalayan Academy Publications, Kapaa, Kauai, Hawaii. Licensed for Wikipedia under Creative Commons and requires attribution when reproduced." There is a link on the file's page which says permission can be found at en:User:Himalayan Academy Publications. "User:Himalayan Academy Publications" also contains a link to en:User:Satyanatha/Permission email,which looks like a permission email which was/could be sent to OTRS, but there's nothing there suggesting OTRS has verified the original copyright ownership license, etc. Moreover, the permission emails seem to user specific (i.e., permission granted to a particular user only) which is something Commons generally doesn't accept. There are quite a number of files uploaded by Special:Contributions/Anantashakti~commonswiki and all seem to be under the same license. Anantashakti~commonswiki hasn't edited since 2008 and User:Himalayan Academy Publications hasn't edited since December 2011, so I have no idea how to find out more about this from them. Is all this sufficient for Commons verification purposes, or do these files require fruther OTRS verification? -- Marchjuly (talk) 10:14, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Copied from COM:VP.
I don't see the issue if https://secure.wikimedia.org/otrs/index.pl?Action=AgentTicketZoom&TicketID=738277 actually shows these permission mails. Well, I see one issue: the license needs to be changed to GFDL, but we can do that. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:31, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
"permission granted to a particular user only" permission is granted to a specific user to upload, so they leave the decision of what to upload and what will be licensed to that user. "All material uploaded by User:Anantashakti copyrighted by Himalayan Academy will automatically be licensed to Wikipedia under GFDL." is clear: the content is licensed to Wikipedia under GFDL. Wikipedia shares it with the world using the same license, and the GFDL allows Wikipedia to do that. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:38, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Correct. Atsme 📞 19:52, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Images from the WikiGap event in Kigali on March 8, 2018[edit]

Hello everyone, I recently uploaded some images from the WikiGap event in Kigali on March 8, 2018. While the pictures taken by Julia Sjöström have been marked as verified by an OTRS-member, the ones from Carl Fredrik Wettermark are marked as permission missing. I guess this is due to Mr. Wettermark sending the permission email not from an official domain, but from his private account. As I asked him to resend it using an official email address, I hereby request you to not delete the pictures and wait for that email. Thank you. --Zenith4237 (talk) 15:49, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Un Vaincu[edit]

Hello. The file https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Boissonnas,_Un_Vaincu,_English,_1875.djvu has now a red tag of deletion within 15 days. I would like to understand what went wrong with the process, because I have contacted and obtained authorization from the translator's son, Jean Boisssonnas (the author Lucie Boissonnas died at the end of the XIXth century). The translator's son sent an email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org at my request, I was in CC, on Sat, Mar 17, 2018 at 10:17 AM. The text of the email had been cut and paste from the tutorial on this web site. See also User_talk:Hektor in wikisource for background. Thanks for considering my question. Hektor (talk) 06:03, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

@Hektor: If a free license has been sent to OTRS, then the file description page will be adjusted when and if the email message regarding Ticket:2018031710003042 is processed and approved. Note that OTRS, like Commons, is entirely staffed by volunteers, and, also like Commons, is shorthanded, so it may be close to 93 days before the message is processed.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 06:12, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Thanks for your answer. The blue tag which has been added to the file says the information in the message was not sufficient to confirm permission for this file. Could you please clarify what exactly is missing ? Hektor (talk) 17:27, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

What I wish to know while creating adult coloring book using images from your website that holds this sort of license. what is the proper way to give attribution to the author who is under creative commons?

The shortest acceptable attribution would be "Peaksel CC BY-SA 4.0", and you would have to license with a CC BY-SA 4.0 or later license, unless you negotiate something better with Peaksel.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 18:28, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
