On this page, users can ask for a deleted page or file (hereafter, "file") to be restored. Users can comment on requests by leaving remarks such as keep deleted or undelete along with their reasoning.

This page is not part of Wikipedia. This page is about the content of Wikimedia Commons, a repository of free media files used by Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia Commons does not host encyclopedia articles. To request undeletion of an article or other content which was deleted from the English Wikipedia edition, see the deletion review page on that project.

Commons deletion (policy)


Contents

Finding out why a file was deleted

First, check the deletion log and find out why the file was deleted. Also use the What links here feature to see if there are any discussions linking to the deleted file. If you uploaded the file, see if there are any messages on your user talk page explaining the deletion. Secondly, please read the deletion policy, the project scope policy, and the licensing policy again to find out why the file might not be allowed on Commons.

If the reason given is not clear or you dispute it, you can contact the deleting administrator to ask them to explain or give them new evidence against the reason for deletion. You can also contact any other active administrator (perhaps one that speaks your native language)—most should be happy to help, and if a mistake had been made, rectify the situation.

Appealing a deletion

Deletions which are correct based on the current deletion, project scope and licensing policies will not be undone. Proposals to change the policies may be done on their talk pages.

If you believe the file in question was neither a copyright violation nor outside the current project scope:

  • You may want to discuss with the administrator who deleted the file. You can ask the administrator for a detailed explanation or show evidence to support undeletion.
  • If you do not wish to contact anyone directly, or if an individual administrator has declined undeletion, or if you want an opportunity for more people to participate in the discussion, you can request undeletion on this page.
  • If the file was deleted for missing evidence of licensing permission from the copyright holder, please follow the procedure for submitting permission evidence. If you have already done that, there is no need to request undeletion here. If the submitted permission is in order, the file will be restored when the permission is processed. Please be patient, as this may take several weeks depending on the current workload and available volunteers.

Temporary undeletion

Files may be temporarily undeleted either to assist an undeletion discussion of that file or to allow transfer to a project that permits fair use. Use the template {{Request temporary undeletion}} in the relevant undeletion request, and provide an explanation.

  1. if the temporary undeletion is to assist discussion, explain why it would be useful for the discussion to undelete the file temporarily, or
  2. if the temporary undeletion is to allow transfer to a fair use project, state which project you intend to transfer the file to and link to the project's fair use statement.

To assist discussion

Files may be temporarily undeleted to assist discussion if it is difficult for users to decide on whether an undeletion request should be granted without having access to the file. Where a description of the file or quotation from the file description page is sufficient, an administrator may provide this instead of granting the temporary undeletion request. Requests may be rejected if it is felt that the usefulness to the discussion is outweighed by other factors (such as restoring, even temporarily, files where there are substantial concerns relating to Commons:Photographs of identifiable people). Files temporarily undeleted to assist discussion will be deleted again after thirty days, or when the undeletion request is closed (whichever is sooner).

To allow transfer of fair use content to another project

Unlike English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects, Commons does not accept non-free content with reference to fair use provisions. If a deleted file meets the fair use requirements of another Wikimedia project, users can request temporary undeletion in order to transfer the file there. These requests can usually be handled speedily (without discussion). Files temporarily undeleted for transfer purposes will be deleted again after two days. When requesting temporary undeletion, please state which project you intend to transfer the file to and link to the project's fair use statement.

Projects that accept fair use

Note: This list might be outdated. For a more complete list, see meta:Non-free content (this page was last updated: March 2014.) Note also: Multiple projects (such as the ml, sa, and si Wikipedias) are listed there as "yes" without policy links.

Adding a request

First, ensure that you have attempted to find out why the file was deleted. Next, please read these instructions for how to write the request before proceeding to add it:

  • In the Subject: field, enter an appropriate subject. If you are requesting undeletion of a single file, a heading like [[:File:DeletedFile.jpg]] is advisable. (Remember the initial colon in the link.)
  • Identify the file(s) for which you are requesting undeletion and provide image links (see above). If you don't know the exact name, give as much information as you can. Requests that fail to provide information about what is to be undeleted may be archived without further notice.
  • State the reason(s) for the requested undeletion.
  • Sign your request using four tilde characters (~~~~). If you have an account at Commons, log in first. If you were the one to upload the file in question, this can help administrators to identify it.

Add the request to the bottom of the page. Click here to open the page where you should add your request. Alternatively, you can click the "edit" link next to the current date below. Watch your request's section for updates.

File:WCRA special train - Cheakamus Canyon. (34473269966).jpg

Those who review flickr images should not do so robotically, should exercise some measure of common sense. Some recently uploaded flickr images will appear to have a license problem, due to a typo, or some other kind of trivial problem. Those images should not be robotically deleted.

The following images, were all uploaded to flickr, by a uploader who says they took the images themselves, who then offered them under a free license. In years past the only free license flickr offered regular uploaders was {{cc-by-2.0}}. Traditionally they only allowed a limited number of institutions, like museums, to mark their images as public domain.

However, in recent years, they have allowed regular uploaders to mark their images as public domain.

This should have been good news for us. Unfortunately, someone took an interpretation of this change in licenses on flickr's part, and has a robot mark the images as suspect, and demand proof that the public domain license is believable.

I looked at a lot of these images, and saw ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to doubt that this flickr contributor was operating in good faith and that all these images were in fact taken by the uploader.

Whoever added the burden of extra work to those of us who upload flickr images does not seem to have considered a simple easy way to clarify that the images seem to be good faith images, taken by the flickr contributor.

All these images should be restored. Geo Swan (talk) 14:38, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

    • Is this a ruling, on high, from the WMF? If not, how was this decided?

      When I saw flickr made a less restrictive license available I changed the license on all my images thinking it would make it easier for other people to re-use them. How wildly counter-intuitive that choosing a less restrictive license should make it harder to re-use one's images.

      You seem to be saying every flickr contributor, who thinks a public domain mark makes it easier to re-use their images, is supposed to somehow figure out that they need to supplement that with an OTRS. Geo Swan (talk) 16:55, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I may in fact be incorrect, but my reading of what Geo Swan wrote is that there is no reason to doubt that the images fall under the second half of your inclusive or statement. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 16:57, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
    • I sent the flickr uploader a flickrmail, saying:
You have uploaded many fine images... thank you very much.
You placed a public domain mark on some of them, giving permission for them to be widely re-used... again, thank you very much.
I uploaded a couple of dozen of them to the wikimedia commons, a couple of weeks ago. I was very surprised to see someone had deleted them. Another person told me that the commons
"...can only accept images licensed under Public Domain Mark 1.0 if ... if the author on Flickr has specified that they grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law."
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Undeletion_requests/ps#File:WCRA_special_train_-_Cheakamus_Canyon._(34473269966).jpg
Would you consider placing a note to this effect on your profile?
Thanks again for uploading fine pictures!
Cheers!
In their gracious flickrmail reply they thanked me, and said I had understood their intent perfectly, and that they would try to add a note with the permissions necessary to re-use his images.
Their flickr about page now says:
"I use the Public Domain category in all the items that I upload. They are mostly photographs taken by myself or by members of my family that are no longer alive. It is my intention that anyone who wishes to use any of my uploads in another context should be free to do so without recourse to me. It would be nice if the pictures were credited if they are my or my family's photographs but I don't insist upon this - my only objective is to put items that interest me into the public domain for the enjoyment of others who might share my interests."
Restore please.
I looked at COM:PDM, that Jeff G. linked to. Geez. We've got to have some way to include images where the flickr uploader is obviously a good faith individual who has only uploaded their own images. As I said above, individuals who choose a PDM, instead of {{cc-by-2.0}} are doing so because they think a freer license makes their images easier to re-use, not harder. Geo Swan (talk) 05:18, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
The appropriate Flickr license for that type of thing is {{CC0}}, which is how you place your own works into the public domain. The public domain mark is actually meant for marking *other people's* works. This is per Creative Commons' guidance. I tend to agree that using that mark on your own works indicates pretty much the same thing as "I place these into the public domain", which we would normally accept, and should be fine -- however the appropriate Commons tag for those is {{PD-author}}, not the PD mark of Creative Commons. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:21, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
@Clindberg: Thanks.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 17:04, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
@Geo Swan: Have you talked to such individuals about this?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 17:04, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Sorry, I am not sure I understand your question. Are you asking how much effort I have made to communicate with flickr contributors over what their licenses mean?
  • In 2009, when I uploaded flickr images one at a time I took an extra 30 seconds to leave an explicit thank you on the flickr page of every image I uploaded, and a link to the images commons description page. I did this for about five years. During this period lots of people replied graciously. Three people were upset. I explained that there were circumstances where the commons community might agree to a courtesy deletion, even though our flickrreview robot had confirmed they were properly licensed. I explained that deletion was not up to me, but rather the community. And I offered to initiate the deletion discussion, and tell them where it was, so they could weigh in.
  1. One adult declined my offer, told me how cross she was, but decided to simply amend the licenses of all her images, so people would no longer have permission to use them in future.
  2. The individual who partially succeeded in winning courtesy deletion was a student who went on a field trip to an Inuit community on Baffin Island -- either Pond Inlet or Pangnitung. She said she was too young to understand what the license meant, and now thought she had made a mistake to have uploaded some images of children. The community deleted the images that included the children, and kept the rest.
  3. The final individual did not win courtesy deletion. His request was complicated because (1) his anger made him go ballistic, accuse the WMF of intellectual dishonesty, and actual theft; (2) Other commons contributors had uploaded about 400 of this guys image, over the years - but he had also started his own commons ID, and had personally uploaded 3 or 4 dozen images here. This completely undermined any claim that he didn't understand the licenses he was using.

    It seems my polite thank you prompted him to count how many of his images had been uploaded here, and it passed some kind of threshhold that triggered an extreme over-reaction.

    When he realized we weren't going to agree to let him claw back the images he said we had completely ruined photography for him -- a hobby he had enjoyed for over forty years, and on which he had spent tens of thousands of dollars. He said he would use his flickr ID to warn the rest of the flickr community how they too were at risk of having their images stolen by commons contributors. He did put up some kind of note on his main flickr page. But a week or two later his flickr ID was shut down. I think his efforts violated the flickr terms of service.

  • So, if you are asking whether I have ever communicated with flickr contributors over what the licenses they chose really meant, the answer is Yes, I have done that, a lot. I've also reached out to some flickr contributors who had uploaded good images of topics we really needed images for, and asked them to consider changing the licensing on those images to a free license. I didn't get any angry responses. I think a few people agreed to change their licensing.
  • My own flickr about page is the one I drafted in 2009. It predates flickr adding additional licensing options. I guess it is overdue for an update. But I think it shows I have made an ongoing effort to communicate with flickr contributors over their licensing choices and what those choices mean. Geo Swan (talk) 02:10, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment Jeff G. offered their opinion of what the flickr contributor had to do for these images to remain here. I drew the flickr uploader's attention to this discussion. The flickr uploader complied with the request. I request anyone who concluded their attempt to comply with our rules fell short, to explain how their efforts fell short. Geo Swan (talk) 17:01, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
@Geo Swan: WCRA special train - Cheakamus Canyon. is still showing "Public Domain Work", expressed as "Cc-public domain mark white.svg Public domain", which is a mark, not a license, and thus unacceptable on Commons. The appropriate license which matches William Davies' expressed intent is "Public Domain Dedication (CC0)", expressed as "Cc-zero.svg Public domain". Please note the differences in the icons and links. I would encourage him to change his Photostream's license en masse to "Public Domain Dedication (CC0)" by selecting all at Flickr: Organize your photos & videos, dragging up, and then clicking "Permissions / Change licensing".   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 08:09, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
Let's not make good faith flickr contributors jump through hoops -- hoops they don't understand.

Some regular people find the details of the free licenses we aim for here, overly complicated, bizarre. I am concerned that we risk frustrating those good faith flickr contributors, when they have clearly expressed their intent, to throw their hands up in frustration, and change to "all rights reserved", because we are so hard to please.

My OTRS from 2009, when cc-by-sa was the free-est license choice flickr provided, said that, without regard to the license on my images on flickr, I place them all in the public domain.

Flickr makes periodic changes to its user interface. I know they made at least one that made applying a license change to all images an order of magnitude more complicated, and time consuming. Jeff's suggestion? I am afraid our flickr contributor might find the same result I did, a year or three ago, if they can follow those instructions. I experienced a long, long wait, as flickr tried to assemble an internal list of all my images, prior to changing the license, followed by its link to my computer timing out -- and none of the licenses ended up being changed.

So, in this particular case, I recommend restoration of the images, in light of his or her clearly expressed intent. Geo Swan (talk) 17:23, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

File:Stickers Währinger Gürtel.jpg

The reason was No FoP for single pieces of artwork in Austria. The image shows three stickers on a lantern pole in the street, e.g. public space. Acc. to Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Austria it does not fall into architectural works (left column), but into other works (right column), where two-dimensional works of visual arts is explicitly allowed (and open in scope). If the nominator is right with the single piece of artwork, than a sticker is explicitly allowed. But the image showed only some stickers without any intent of art. Stickers are placed in the public space permanently by intent (just like graffiti). Pinging @B dash: who did not see or ignore my question. I cannot follow arguments, so please undelete. best --Herzi Pinki (talk) 13:15, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

The picture was taken on my behalf as part of my 2014 election campaign. I own all the rights. Otherwise I obviously wouldn't have used it. You can find it on my website, borchures and so far and so on. I can hardly imagine how anyone vould have gotten to the impression, that it wasn't a picture I own the rights to. As there have been multiple spurious changes to my article page recently, I assume that to be a part of it and kindly ask you to restore the page. Thank you.

@Hanka Kliese: I can assure you that I have never touched the biography of you at de:Hanka Kliese; you shouldn't have done so per de:WP:COI. Pinging @Túrelio about this photo.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 15:55, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Neither did I touch the biography, at least not since June 2017. The changes were made by another person and not in the biography part. Under the point "Sonstiges" there were added some false statements and I reversed them. To assure maximum transparency, I did this under the real name (as always), which cannot be said about the person who introduced the fake parts. Of course I didn't want to imply this person was you. Thank you for you help, I'm hoping the damage done to the article will soon be repaired.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Hanka Kliese (talk • contribs) 16:17, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

The problems regarding the content of the article are now set to be fixed within the next few days. So will it also take some more days till the original picture is back in place and everything will then be set back to the repaired version at once? I didn't hear anything yet from the person you contacted in your last comment and I just realised that the picture is still the wrong one, so I wanted to check back for that matter. Thank you in advance.

This is not how copyright law works "Otherwise I wouldn't have used it" would be laughed out of court room, because "Otherwise all copyright infringers would use that defence". Now, I am not saying that you are infringing the copyright, but you must provide evidence that you hold the copyright. You are the copyright owner if 1) You pressed the shutter, even if remotely, 2) You acquired from the person who pressed the shutter, 3) You have set up the camera, chose the aperture, exposure, white balance, timing, and focus, after that you have signalled another person to take the photo, and were the one who handled the image afterwards (note that in this case it is important that the decision to press the shutter was actually yours, you had to signal that other person and not rely on that person's judgement of when to take the photo, saying "Take a photo when I am ready" is precisely what would make them and not you the author, since they make a creative decision). So could you please explain how the image was taken. Ignoring the conversation and repeating the claim that you own the copyright will not convince anybody to restore it. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 10:04, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

As I wrote above: "The picture was taken on my behalf as part of my 2014 election campaign. I own all the rights." And because I understand the copyright concerns, of course otherwise I obviously wouldn't have used it. By that, I mean, I would of course never upload a picture of which I don't own the copyright to. That is what I wanted to say with this statement. What is laughable about that point remains unclear to me.

So it obviously - as probably in almost every case with a portrait picture of a politician - would be number 2 of the options you put out. 1 and 3 would be types of "taken BY myself" which was ruled out way up front in this discussion. It was a portrait shooting for a campaign. Maybe it becomes clear, by also repeating: "Never claimded to be the author, of course it is not a self-portrait. I wrote: It is a picture OF myself, taken FOR myself (not BY)."

Hello once again, just checked and the image is still the wrong one. Has there been any progress in restoring the picture? So far I unfortunately didn't get an answer. I also sent the permission to use the picture to the "permissions"-e-mail-adress a while ago, no reaction from there as well. Compared to how fast the erasure went, I would really appreciate if the restoral would also move up. In the meantime, as I'm still trying to get a sense of the very specific rules of this encylclopedia, I would also like to ask if there has there been reported a substantiated copyright complaint? I can't imagine why anyone would bring that up, as there was nothing wrong with the picture. Or is it the same as with the changes made to the content of the article itself: changes can be made pretty arbitrarily, without proof and only reversing the damage done takes a lot of time and proof with all the discussions connected to this? Thanks in advance.

@Hanka Kliese: The photo author (photographer) is the photo copyright owner by default. And if the copyright owner is somebody else, there is some contract (eg. the photographer's job contract, copyright transfer contract, etc.) that states so. And we need en evidence that such a contract exist; in written form as required by copyright law. We understand that such contracts cannot be made public and their evidence cannot be proven in on-wiki discussion. So we have the OTRS system for this purpose. Unfortunately, our OTRS team is small and overloaded, so processing emails sent to OTRS requires time. Few months, now. And, basing om information you provided, I see no other way to restore your photo that providing all the copyright-related information including your written permission to OTRS, verifying the provided information by an OTRS agent, and the agent's request to undelete it. Even if you have rights to use the photo in your campaign or for other purposes, this does not mean that you are the copyright owner. And only the actual copyright owner may make the photo freely licensed. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose undeletion at this point. Ankry (talk) 17:14, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Please restore files uploaded by Catsquisher

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Numerous image files that I uploaded years ago have recently been deleted or are pending deletion. All of the images I’m referring to are from utility patents. When I posted the images years ago I used a licensing template that indicated that the drawings are in the public domain because the content of utility patents is typically not copyrightable. The template was later modified to claim that the exemption from copyrights only applies “to images published before March 1, 1989.” That change to the license template may be a reflection that the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals ruled in Yardley, 493 F.2d 1389 (C.C.P.A. 1974) that "Congress has not provided that an author inventor must elect between securing a copyright or securing a design patent." While the consequence of that ruling is that authors/inventors of design patents could assert copyrights on their designs, the ruling did not extend to utility patents. The ruling acknowledges that design patents are granted for the novelty of ornamental design (potentially copyrightable), whereas utility patents are granted based on functional novelty (not copyrightable). All of the patent drawing images I have uploaded are from utility patents that made no copyright claims, and are thus within the public domain. Therefore, I request that they be restored to the creative commons. Catsquisher (talk) 03:20, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

I think that you need to bring that up either on the talk page of the template, or on COM:Village pump/Copyright (or better bring it up on one and then link notify about it on the other). This isn't something that should be done on the file per file basis. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 09:51, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

@Ankry, Jcb: Those are memorial plaques documenting the naming of Hofstra women's lacrosse locker room in honor of James C. Metzger '83 in recognition of his support to the women's lacrosse program. As far as I know there are not other pictures like this here, but even so, I would find quite unusual deleting something so obviously on scope, as memorial plaques commemorating the efforts of someone promoting women equality on Sports. It really boggles my mind how is this being compared to "random houses and trees".-- Darwin Ahoy! 12:24, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
I know dozens of buildings only in my villages with such memorial plaques, most of them naming someone who did an effort in something. Jcb (talk) 14:48, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Colleen Ballinger doesn't use this. This appears in the Google search results because https://twitter.com/honeymoondix replied to something she said. Honeymoondix mentioned Pete Davidson three times in the past two years: today, 14 October and 30 September. So they likely also switched their icon recently. Twitter icons can't be dated anyway.

RE:Herbert Mensah PR.2.jpg.jpg[edit]

Although the picture used had been published earlier by some news sites, as a personal biographer of the subject/copyrights owner, I obtained this portrait directly from the subject/owner whose personal photographer shared the portrait with the media sometime ago. It is on this basis that the copyrights of the portrait are not attributed to any other source. (as I am directly authorised by the owner/subject to use in Wikipedia). I, therefore, want to appeal the deletion of the portrait and request urgent undeletion. The subject/owner of the copyright/photographer is prepared to attest to this in writing. Subject insist on this portrait of him be his profile face on Wikipedia for now based on which I am making this urgent appeal. Please reconsider your decision. Thank you.

The image deleted does have permission to be used on Commons as I took the photo.
