File:אשרה אלקיים רונן.tif and File:אשרה אלקיים רונן - אדם וחווה.jpg[edit]

Hi there, I sent approval for both those images, the aaprovals are from Oshra herself. Is there anything I should do more? I am helping her with this but I am now an expert... thanks! Heblit16 (talk) 22:53, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Heblit16, regarding to File:אשרה אלקיים רונן.tif You do have respond in your mail from 9 January 2018. If you don't speak Hebrew please say so. -- Geagea (talk) 03:28, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
Geagea I speak Hebrew but I dont see any mail... Heblit16 (talk) 15:45, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
@Heblit16: Please check your spam folder.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 01:11, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
talk to me To which email your refering? can you please send it here maybe? Heblit16 (talk) 18:56, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
@Heblit16: For each, who is the photographer who took the picture? When and under what circumstances was the photo taken?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 19:24, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
Jeff According to Oshra herself, it was taken by a firend (who passed away a long time ago) and was given to her and everyone can use it since there are no rights. Heblit16 (talk) 16:33, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
@Heblit16: It is likely that the rights of the friend passed to the friend's heirs or the state. Without permission from them, or documentation that the friend died more than 50-70 years ago per COM:CRT#Israel, we must apply COM:PRP, assume the heirs or state still hold those rights, and delete these photos.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 17:57, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
Jeff, it was just a friend taking it for Oshra and gave it to her, if you will search online you will see the images also appear on I am sire I can get them to approve as well if needed. The rights were never claimed and the friend gave Osra the negatives even... Heblit16 (talk) 12:07, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Jeff, I told Oshra about the whole thing and she contacted the man who took the pictuers's son. Which approval is needed? he is willing to help since he also knows it was given to her for by his father... please let me know asap since he lives in the us. thanks, Heblit16 (talk) 08:41, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
@Heblit16: Please have him email us, copy you, and add the following to the subject bar of the email message: [Ticket#: 2018010910007254]. We also need permission of the photographer of File:אשרה אלקיים רונן - אדם וחווה.jpg for Ticket:2018011410006343.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 12:20, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
G. ツ, email you in his own words saying that his father took the pictuers and gave them to Oshra? and also to which email, the regular one? thanks Heblit16 (talk) 11:31, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
@Heblit16: Yes, Also, mentions of User:Jeff G./talk don't work, please ping me.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 11:48, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
talk to me Hope I did it right :) I asked him to send and Oshra talked with him a well since she knows him personally. Hope it will work and pass. Thanks! Heblit16 (talk) 16:20, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

OTRS ticket:2011011410009399[edit]

I'm wondering if a some OTRS volunteers would mind taking a look at Ticket:2011011410009399 and see if it can be extended to cover Commons:Deletion requests/File:British Columbia Yellowhead Highway 16 3.png. As far as I can tell, only one person commenting in the DR can see the actual ticket, and he has expressed some reservations about it. The others commenting on it (including myself) can only speculate as whether it covers all Yellowhead shield road signs. Since there are quite a number of files uploading locally to English Wilkipedia as non-free content which likely be affected by this DR's outcome, it would be helpful if a strong consensus either way (particularly about the OTRS ticket) is established. FWIW, if the ticket can be extended to cover these other files, then that's fine with me; the DR can be closed as "keep", though I think the file's licensing would need to tweaked to reflect that it is a derivative of the original file and covered by the ticket and not 100% "own work", but that's just "paperwork" so to speak. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:23, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

@Marchjuly: My opinion at that DR was as an OTRS volunteer member who had read the ticket. Yes, it's a grandfathered old ticket, but it does apply.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 04:51, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
Sorry Jeff G. I didn't realize you are also an OTRS volunteer. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:58, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

2 new Bollywood-like templates[edit]

Today a new user created the 2 Bollywood-like templates

which are in the cat "Custom license tags with OTRS permission", but don't carry any ticket number. As the website carries the warning "All photos and videos posted on are only for promoting movies, celebrities and technicians. Those materials are published for general viewing and are strictly not resold or distributed." and states "Copyright © 2018. Dubai Media Incorporated. All rights reserved.", I doubt the legitimacy of these templates. Could you check whether there is any permission related to these sites? --Túrelio (talk) 11:39, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

@Túrelio: Considering, I have found only one good permission Ticket:2015051010011128, for one file on If there were a good blanket permission before that, we would already have such a template. More later...   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:53, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
@Túrelio: Considering, I have found no permission tickets for files on Thus, I conclude that those illegitimate templates should be removed and Mohammedjaseem66 should be prevented from making similar ones.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 00:38, 6 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Cc-by-3.0-Emirates 24/7. --Túrelio (talk) 11:32, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

IPA charts[edit]

Regarding File:IPA2005 3000px.png: Are all IPA charts free, or just those from 2005 onwards? Does the permission in Ticket:2012071010000641 mention the version(s) of the IPA chart one is allowed to use? There are IPA charts from 1932, 1951 and 1979 uploaded locally on English Wikipedia, and I wonder if they could be safely copied to Commons without us making judgments on whether they meet the threshold of originality. Nardog (talk) 17:14, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

@Nardog: Only back through 2005 per what has become, you'd have to inquire there to go back farther.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 23:16, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll see what I can do. Nardog (talk) 02:56, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Art work photo[edit]

Hello, I uploaded photo of a painting of mine, but I could not find the right "licence" to contribute to it, so it has been deleted. Could you please help me: basically I want to show the photo of my art only for reference, academic, or journalistic use. I do not want to give permission for commercial users to use the photo of my painting. In this case, WHICH LICENSE number should I contribute to it please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lidasher (talk • contribs) 16:45, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Lidasher: What you want to do is incompatible with the purpose and policies of this site. If you don't want your works to be free for any purpose, you should not upload them to Wikimedia Commons. LX (talk, contribs) 17:01, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello LX, yes I have just read the section on "free enough" which states that the works have to be available to also commercial users. So yes I am afraid I cannot allow them on Wikipedia. Thanks for getting back to me.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lidasher (talk • contribs) 17:26, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

File:United Airlines flight 1175.jpg[edit]

Is this true? --jdx Re: 18:17, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

No it isn't. That ticket has to do with Category:Universytet Metro Station, Kiev. The attached "permission" letter also isn't valid as it is easily forged. I have DR'ed the image. --Majora (talk) 02:55, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
OK, thanks. So we should look closer at AyaanLamar's contributions because I have already found a QI image which has not been even nominated. --jdx Re: 05:15, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Captive elephants taken by N. A. Naseer[edit]

One of my friend in Malayalam Wikipedia informed me that three photos of captive elephants taken by N. A. Naseer were deleted from the Malayalam Wikipedia page. Upon inspecting that page i found the files were deleted by you. They are File:Elephants of Kerala L12 (2).jpg, File:Elephants of Kerala L13 (2).jpg and File:Elephants of Kerala L14 (2).jpg. They are from the category, Category:Photographs of captive elephants taken by N. A. Naseer and I can see a similarly named one still existing with a OTRS ticket #2017030110015374. Could you check and let me know what the missing information is? Pinging the uploader, the ML Wiki editor and the only admin from Malayalam Wikipedia too for any further inputs.

One more issue I came to notice is that OTRS ticket# in both Category:Photographs by Joseph Lazer and Category:Photographs by N. A. Naseer are same in most files (#2013082110009341). So my assumption is that 1. either, there is a mistake in ticket# entered, 2. or, mails from both parties got merged. Naseer's mail ID is very well known that you can see in the license tag.

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)

File:Perjalanan Hidup Saya.pdf -- copyright holder email[edit]

The copyright holder (son of author) has sent an email verifying that File:Perjalanan Hidup Saya.pdf is released under CC0 license. Can anyone verify? Also, the book does not have information regarding who made the book cover (pages 1-2, page 2 is the back cover which in turn contains the blurb which I regard as part of the book), will it be redacted from the uploaded file? Aumars (talk) 19:48, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose If a free license has been sent to OTRS, then the image will be restored automatically when and if the e-mail is received, 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 49 days before the e-mail is processed and the image is restored.
If the message was sent to the English language version of OTRS and the e-mail has been properly received there the sender will receive an automatic reply with the ticket number.

That didn't answer my question, so I'll assume leaving the first two pages of the PDF should be fine. Ticket number is Ticket:2018022510004028, the email registered the file as "Perjalanan_Hidup_Saya.pdf" although the real uploaded file doesn't contain underscores. I don't think the automated system will realise that, it would be great if an admin could do it manually for a minute. Thanks in advance. Aumars (talk) 10:31, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Underscores and spaces are equivalent in MediaWiki page names. In the visible form spaces are shown whereas respective canonical URLs contain underscores instead. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:28, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the information. May I have an update on the ticket? It's been more than two weeks since I've uploaded the file and there has been no response. I hope there are no problems with it. Aumars (talk) 12:11, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Can somebody check ticket 2011030410006577 for this image? Speakers of Romanian preferred. @Silenzio76: @Turbojet: what do you say? Gikü (talk) 15:56, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

The ticket 2011030410006577 releases all photos from under the CC-BY-SA-3.0 license. There are hundreds of images. The permission is signed by the director of Directorate of Information and Public Relations of National Defense Ministry.
I've completed the permission to the image. --Turbojet (talk) 16:57, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
@Turbojet: Is it good how I prepared the image description? Can I continue in the same manner? Gikü (talk) 18:47, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
IMO, yes. If somebody disagrees, I also learn something.
Please make a list of all those images and let OTRS volunteers confirm the tichet everywhere. --Turbojet (talk) 09:25, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
@Turbojet: You mean a list of all images sharing this ticket ID, be it on rowp or Commons?
Meanwhile, please also review these ones:
Thank you. Gikü (talk) 19:00, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
IMO on rowp. We talk there.
Done for the 3 above. --Turbojet (talk) 08:33, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Schwatka Note.jpg[edit]

Can anyone tell me whether copyright applies to letter written and signed by a then-US Army Lieutenant? Either {{PD-USGov}} applies, or probably it's still copyrighted when it was first published in 1995 (per chart). Moreover, can ticket:2018010710000381 be evaluated please? Thanks. George Ho (talk) 05:14, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

The ticket is about the photo of the document, that was written more than 138 years ago, so I believe we can safely assume it is in the public domain now. --Ruthven (msg) 14:10, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Changed the licensing status. Now what about the OTRS tag? George Ho (talk) 20:34, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Or probably unpublished? George Ho (talk) 20:37, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
@George Ho: We can leave it there, or move to the talk page. The idea is to have a link to the OTRS exchange for future memory. --Ruthven (msg) 20:38, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour AntonierCH,

Les règles de l'ORTS protègent parfaitement le droit d'auteur et ne sont jamais à remettre en cause. Cependant j'ai depuis quelques mois beaucoup de mal à comprendre leur application.

Ainsi pour File:Île du Levant. Nature.jpg j'ai transmis une autorisation avec licence établie en pdf par l'auteur vérifiable sur une adresse web. Ce dernier (Michel Guinard) a néanmoins du répondre à une demande OTRS (ce qui l'a un rien agacé...

Pour File:Île du Levant. Phare du Titan.jpg même démarche de transmission en pdf par l'auteur (Olivier Hoarau) [il s'agit du meme auteur que pour les fichiers suivants].

Puis lui est demandé des autorisations et des licences pour une série de clichés. Ce qu'il accorde très rapidement :

par mail qui vous sont transmis mais qui sont remis en cause ?

La procédure est pourtant la même que :

En résumé que faire ?
Rechercher des clichés est difficiles car identifier les auteurs est ardu, trouver comment les contacter difficile et parfois pour une raison qui est leur droit l'absence de réponse ou le refus est acté.

Merci de tout ce que vous faites pour l'OTRS mais essayez d'être clair dans vos souhaits. Remettez si nécessaire la page de demande à jour sur Commons.

Cordialement. 6PO

Bonjour 6PO,
La raison principale est qu'il y a beaucoup de retard dans le traitement des autorisations. Désolé. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 13:17, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour 6PO, pourrais-tu me rappeler le numéro de ticket pour que j'expédie cela ? Effectivement, notre backlog est a plus d'une centaine de jours et la qualité et rapidité du traitement (surtout si un suivi est nécessaire faute d'informations incomplètes ou insuffisantes par exemple) peut laisser à désirer. --AntonierCH (d) 14:28, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour --AntonierCH, je retrouve dans mes archives : Ticket#2018012510011852 . Est-ce bien cela ? Merci pour tout ce travail et Cordialement. 6PO (talk) 14:38, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
6PO : Ce courriel a reçu une réponse. Nous avons demandé à l'auteur de nous confirmer que l'autorisation était authentique (vous êtes en copie du courriel). A ce jour, il ne semble pas qu'il nous ait répondu. --AntonierCH (d) 15:41, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour AntonierCH, en absence de réponse, pour une question qu'il ne juge peut-être pas prioritaire puisque qu'il a déjà donné son autorisation, l'OTRS peut-t-elle reformuler sa demande ? Cordialement. 6PO (talk) 15:47, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Comme expliqué précédemment, nous sommes surchargés et n'avons pas le temps de faire de multiples relances. La procédure de base est simple, c'est l'auteur qui devrait nous contacter directement. Dans le cas présent, il s'agit d'oeuvres pour lesquels ont peut s'attendre à un retour sur ses dires de l'artiste et il me semble important qu'il nous confirme l'existence d'une telle autorisation. Exceptionnellement, je viens de le relancer. --AntonierCH (d) 15:51, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour AntonierCH, merci de cette démarche à la laquelle l'auteur (Olivier Hoarau) a accepté de vous répondre directement ainsi qu'en témoigne le mail du dim. 11/03/2018 17:13, avec le numéro de Ticket#2018012510011852, pour lequel il m'a mis en copie (et que je vous ai néanmoins aussi transmis). Merci pour tout ce travail qui va permettre une restauration.--Cordialement. 6PO (talk) 17:09, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour AntonierCH, vraiment un grand merci d'avoir permis ces restaurations. Toutefois je n'ose plus les remettre sur Wikipedia France car ells ne possèdent pas de ticket OTRS. Or, il s'agit du seul élément qui manque avant que l'île du Levant passe au vote AdQ. Quelle démarche dois-je effectuer ? Merci de me conseiller et de votre disponibilité. Cordialement. 6PO (talk) 21:19, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

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) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jesuschristonacamel (talk • contribs)

Letter from Dr./Prof. Luke Roberts[edit]

Dr./Prof. Luke Roberts of the University of California at Santa Barbara told me that he had sent an electronic letter confirming that the images of his website can be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, I am just posting this here to confirm the ticket 🎟 so I can start importing the images from his personal website at the University of California at Santa Barbara. I will create the maintenance ⛑🏻 category Category:Media contributed by Dr. Luke Roberts (UCSB) in the meantime and request that an OTRS agent will add the appropriate OTRS ticket 🎟 to this category. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 18:05, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Thank you!--Michedomi (talk) 21:02, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

@Michedomi: The files will be processed when and if the email 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 49 days after 10 March before the email is processed and the file is processed and approved.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 22:16, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
