Welcome to the OTRS noticeboard

This page is where users can communicate with Commons OTRS volunteers, or OTRS volunteers with one another. You can request permissions verification here, or anything else that needs an agent's assistance. This page is multilingual — when discussing tickets in languages other than English, please make a note of this and consider asking your question in the same language.

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions before posting your question here.

The current backlog of the (English) permissions-commons queue is: 14 days  update

Commons:Deletion requests/File:2011 05 Edvard Chubaryan 75th Birthday 37.jpg[edit]

User who downloaded this image says, that he included it in permission ticket:2013052110006439. Please, check it and add this permission to file. 17:36, 19 January 2016 (UTC)— Preceding unsigned comment added by Красный Партизан (talk • contribs)

@Jcb, ticket owner. Ticket purports to cover images and text on what likely should be seen as this version of a hywiki page. A possible issue is that many images were added by an ip, whereas most historical edits were made by a Vahram Mekhitarian. I have doubts about the validity of the ticket, but will defer to any other agent. Storkk (talk) 17:45, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Striking part of my comment, as images were uploaded by Vahram Mekhitarian. Ticket still seems dubious to me. Storkk (talk) 17:47, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Situation seems really strange, because uploader says, that all of that files are property of Edvard Chubaryan and he permitted the usage. But I don't know is he really the owner of that images. Specifically this image — a photo collage and I don't know anything about copyrights in those cases. Красный Партизан (talk) 18:49, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

File:Ruprecht von Mangoldt.JPG[edit]

Hi, for the above linked image a permission had been sent on September 24, 2015 to permissions-commons-de@wikimedia.org. Nevertheless, 1 month later the image was still untouched by any OTRS-volunteer and consequently had been deleted. As the permission-mail has been disclosed to me by the original sender, I have temp-undeleted the image to allow OTRS volunteers to check for the permission-mail (possible search term "Ruprecht von Mangoldt", the depicted person) and evaluate it accordingly. Thanks. --Túrelio (talk) 10:34, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Permission is pending under Ticket:2015092410007556 after recent incoming replies. Basvb (talk) 12:20, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Russian reviewer needed[edit]

I need a Russian-speaking reviewer familiar with OTRS to {{subst:LRW}} these files: Special:ListFiles/Vmdubovoi. It looks like they are good, but I can't read the Russian permission message. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 15:02, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Commons:Village_pump/Copyright#Template:VitalyDruchenok[edit]

Could an volunteer can explain the logic behind this template? It is not clear who approved and/or added that permission. (Prefer commenting there.) Jee 02:30, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

@Jkadavoor: This was Anatoliy. I have responded on the page you requested with my take. In short, looks OK in this instance for photos uploaded to the external site before the OTRS ticket date. The general case of these templates is potentially problematic, and we should really strive for proper lists of specific files rather than blanket releases. Storkk (talk) 13:10, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Jee 17:59, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

File:Cobalt CO50 Valkyrie.png & File:Cobalt Co50 Valkyrie.png[edit]

Dear OTRS volunteers,

can someone please verify permission for File:Cobalt CO50 Valkyrie.png and File:Cobalt Co50 Valkyrie.png, which are currently being undeleted? I believe permission was sent from an @cobalt-aircraft.com email. Thank you! Ariadacapo (talk) 12:12, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Ticket:2016012410009754 and Ticket:2016012410010537. Neither have the boilerplate that we prefer (COM:CONSENT), but they might be deemed acceptable given that the uploader's username appears to match an official at the company. Given they need another back-and-forth, I'll leave this for another agent... the permissions-en queue has >100 day backlog, so I am trying to focus time on that. Storkk (talk) 12:44, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I am getting back to them and asking for a better permission mail. Thank you for your time Storkk. Ariadacapo (talk) 17:42, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Copyright infringement[edit]

I see that the file on File:Steinway & Sons upright piano, model 1098, manufactured at Steinway's factory in New York City.jpg in size 1,767 x 1,695 (2.87 MB) has been uploaded with permission by a company. However, in the file history there are two versions from 2014 that are of much higher sizes "3,998 x 4,828 (4.5 MB)" and "3,998 x 3,652 (4.47 MB)". My guess is that these two large versions from 2014 are too high and are not in accordance with the permission from the company.

We are allowed to create derivative works of what is uploaded here on Commons, but we are not allowed to simple find the same image in a higher resolution somewhere and then re-upload it here. That is illegal.

Is it possible to delete these two old versions from 2014 in the file history: File:Steinway & Sons upright piano, model 1098, manufactured at Steinway's factory in New York City.jpg#File history?

The company never mentioned such a restriction. Regards. Natuur12 (talk) 01:42, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Valid OTRS Ticket, nothing illegal here. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:10, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
