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.

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.

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/headline: field, enter an appropriate subject. If you are requesting undeletion of a single file, a heading like [[:Image: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.

This request has been sitting around for nearly a month now. Pinging the six admins that we have that are native Portuguese speakers (Beria, Dantadd, Darwinius, Érico Júnior Wouters, Teles and Waldir).
If I understand the request correctly, the uploader claims that the coat of arms in question "is for public use and has no known copyright", but this claim seems to be unsubstantiated. It is possible that {{PD-BrazilGov}} applies, but it would need to be demonstrated that the coat of arms was first published prior to 1983. LX (talk, contribs) 15:10, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
No response for well over two months now. Re-pinging the Portuguese speakers that have been active since the last ping: Darwinius, Érico Júnior Wouters, Teles and Waldir. LX (talk, contribs) 19:55, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
I agree. We should have more information on its sources. We can't tell if PD-BrazilGOV applies without having more information of when it was created.—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 20:30, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Als Neuling verstand ich das Hochladen von Bildern auf Wikimedia bezüglich Lizenzierung nicht. Hatte mehrere Versuche gemacht, scheiterte aber jedesmal. Mittlerweile habe ich die Vorschriften der Lizenzierung mehrmals gelesen, und ich meine jetzt auch zu wissen, was ich machen muss. - Deshalb ersuche ich, die bereits hochgeladenen Bilder OB 0198 und FP 0065 wieder zu aktivieren, damit ich sie ordnungsgemäss in den Text einfügen kann. - Mit bestem Dank, Sofia König (Sofia König (talk) 07:08, 28 July 2015 (UTC))

Ich bitte höflich um Entlöschung der beiden im Betreff genannten Bilder. Als Neuling machte ich beim Hochladen von Bildern auf Wikimedia bezüglich Lizenzierung nur Fehler. Mir war leider nicht klar, weshalb die Nennung des Copyrights in der File-Beschreibung (siehe unten das falsche Beispiel) nicht ausreiche für die Veröffentlichung. Mittlerweile habe ich die Vorschriften der Lizenzierung mehrmals gelesen, und ich meine jetzt auch zu wissen, was ich machen muss. - Deshalb ersuche ich, die bereits hochgeladenen Bilder OB 0198 und FP 0065 freizuschalten, damit ich sie ordnungsgemäss in den Text einfügen kann. - Mit bestem Dank, Sofia König (Sofia König (talk) 07:08, 28 July 2015 (UTC))]]

Image:Lighting McQueen.jpg

See Commons:Deletion requests/File:Lighting McQueen.jpg. A skilled automotive customiser has taken a drivable vehicle, shortened the wheelbase and replaced the standard body panels with customised ones that make the vehicle look like a cartoon character, but the car remains drivable. Image is not a sculpture but a {{Useful-object-US}} (or whichever country the photo was taken; it looks to be a motorshow in the UK): one cannot remove the customised body from these vehicles and leave nothing in its place without affecting the utilitarian aspects of the motorcar, as these body parts are not merely decorative - they protect the mechanical workings of the car from the elements, just like the standard body panels would have. As such, the deletion of the image is erroneous. Furthermore, the image does qualify for fair use on en.WP as w:Eddie Paul discusses this specific group of automotive customisations, including this specific vehicle. Clearly, en.WP should be hosting these images locally instead of here if the result of upload here is that legitimate content which is in active use is disappearing in this manner. Please undelete this to upload it to en.WP directly, fair use for w:Eddie Paul as an encyclopaedia article which discusses the making of this specific three-dimensional article.

Reason: Dear Wikimedia Commons,

My name is Chris Steffler, a Sony Music artist and I am writing to you today to send you verification that I have legal write to apply an image to Wikipedia’s Platinum Blonde (Band) page (Wikipedia). Our legal dept at Sony Music has issued a letter from vice president of the legal dept Ms.Judy Nueberg and I am not understanding why I cannot attach our letter here.

I am happy to donate $100.00 to Wikipedia for correction of this matter and to see the photo info you provided below undeleted.

Thank you, Chris Steffler PlatinumBlonde.com Toronto Canada

This media was probably deleted. Thanks for uploading File:Platinum Blonde 1984.jpg. This media is missing permission information. A source is given, but there is no proof that the author or copyright holder agreed to license the file under the given license. Please provide a link to an appropriate webpage with license information, or send an email with copy of a written permission to OTRS (permissions-commons@wikimedia.org). This also applies if you are the author yourself. Please see this page for more information on how to confirm permission, and Commons:Permission if you would like to understand why we ask for permission when uploading work that is not your own.

The file probably has been deleted. If you sent a permission, try to send it again after 14 days. Do not re-upload. When the OTRS-member processes your mail, the file can be undeleted. Additionally you can request undeletion here, providing a link to the File-page on Commons where it was uploaded (File:Platinum Blonde 1984.jpg) and the above demanded information in your request.

Image:MapAsiaGeonamesallCountries.jpg

The image File:MapAsiaGeonamesallCountries.jpg was deleted as an alleged copyvio. This is an image that I have generated myself from scratch, based on data with a free license (CC-BY 3.0) from GeoNames.org. From the GeoNames "about"-page, right at the top: "The GeoNames geographical database is available for download free of charge under a creative commons attribution license." The image is created from data in that geographical database, specifically this file: http://download.geonames.org/export/dump/allCountries.zip (290 M). In the corresponding readme file in the same directory, the CC license is repeated: "This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License, see http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/".

Requesting restoration of the file to Wikimedia Commons with Stevens' Special Collection Policy as proof of free use. OPJ91 (talk) 15:47, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yann, The copyright at the bottom of the page refers to the website code and content. Aside from the "Duplication and Reproduction" policy at the bottom it also states that "All duplication of materials in Special Collections and Archives is done by staff only, and the library reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in the staff's judgment, fulfillment of the order would violate copyright law, or if size or condition of the material does not permit safe copying". Since the copy is distributed from their collection it is implied that it does not violate copy right and is open. OPJ91 (talk) 19:14, 26 August 2015 (UTC)OPJ91
@OPJ91: Hi, As the bottom of the page says "© Stevens Institute of Technology. All rights reserved.", documents from this institution are not automatically in the public domain. These are old pictures, so it would help if you provide the exact source(s), date(s), and author(s), which are necessary to determine the copyright. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:47, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
@Yann: Hi, Sorry if I'm misunderstanding, but I thought the "© Stevens Institute of Technology. All rights reserved." only applies to material on the website itself. The uploaded images were scanned copies of physical photographs in the university's archives which were distributed to me upon a visit (not contained on the website). If the the information provided on the "Duplication and Reproduction" policy does not suffice, would you advise sending asking a representative of the university to submit permission to OTRS? OPJ91 (talk) 13:03, 27 August 2015 (UTC)OPJ91
How did the copyright expire? Was this a published photograph at some point? Looking at the Google cache, it had a CC0 tag -- that implies that the uploader owns the copyright and is using that declaration to place it into the public domain. Was this a photo owned by the school as a work for hire? It is possible that it was {{PD-US-no notice}} or (if published before 1964) {{PD-US-not renewed}}, but... that is what we wanted to see. It may be that the school owns a still-valid copyright thus is able to let researchers copy it... they could be more careful about third-party copyrights than their own. What was the photo scanned from? Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:36, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Images for Jess H Davis and Harvey N Davis were both from early years of their presidencies (early 1950s and late 1920s, respectively) so both your suggestions are possible. As mentioned earlier these JPEGs were scanned from the original print photograph and was presumably used in yearbooks/newspapers. @Clindberg: did you find this photo through a different source within the Google cache where it was declared CC0? OPJ91 (talk) 15:24, 27 August 2015 (UTC)OPJ91
No, I saw the cache of the commons image page. I don't think that license is valid -- that would require the license to be explicitly stated as such by the university. So these were prints they had on file? Just given odds, they were probably published and are probably PD, but the precautionary principle usually means we would like some more concrete evidence that such copies were either distributed (i.e. published) themselves, or published elsewhere. If it was a private photograph, the copyright status does get murkier. What exact collection was the print in? Was it university records, or was it material donated by someone else?

Please undelete the file called When the Time is Right.

Please undelete the file called Looking up to Cuuba'.

Please undelete the file called When the 'Assassinations Series no 15 Rudi Dutschke'.

I am writing the profile for Paul Eachus who is an international artist (please see his website: http://www.pauleachus.com/ ). I would like to include this image as an example of his drawing work. I am in fact his wife and have total permission to distribute and promote his work and if you need me to provide any proof please let me know how I can do it.

I have tried to upload this image a few times and it was rejected as copy right violation. As I am doing this for the first time and also very unfamiliar to the system I thought I may have done this incorrectly so I tried to upload the image a few times in a different way. The original Photo is a large scale photo and the jpeg image is only a documentation of the original image.

All of the photos except for one for the Rampart Institute Wikipedia page are the ones I took. As owner of Athena Graphics, I had my own camera equipment and dark room. I was also the first executive director of Rampart Institute. The only photo I did not take was the photo of the library at Rampart College. Robert LeFevre, founder of Rampart College, was also a board member of Rampart Institute. Since Rampart College became defunct in 1975, much of his material from Rampart College were donated to Rampart Institute. We used the Rampart College library photo in one of Rampart Institute flyer (New Renaissance flyer) which is enclosed in attachment. We could not find the original photo, so we took it from the flyer. Let me know your decision. See the archive site for Rampart Institute ( http://rampart.freedom1776.com/ ) which is still being assembled.

Hi,

The image belongs to Open magazine and is free content (for other users to use and download). Hence, being a part of Team Open, I request you to please undelete the image from our Open Wiki-page. Its hampering the page without the magazine cover. --Nehadey3 (talk) 12:52, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Airport Guide Western Edition back cover art.jpg

This is MY original artwork for the cover of MY software product so it should not have been deleted. I would like to know why someone can delete a picture without knowing it's background. A hunch should not be good enough. Please undelete this picture. Anyone is free to use this picture with no restrictions as stated when I uploaded it. N8080 (talk) 16:07, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Billetes

Por enésima vez borran archivos de billetes y monedas que subí y que están en dominio público y que no tengo los escaneados disponibles ya. Los 100 años no son válidos para trabajos de hasta de 1952 y los trabajos de gobierno se refieren a los del gobierno posrevolucionrio. Por lo que solicito restauren de nuevo primero fue el usuario ARTEST4ECHO y ahora Mattflaschen el que borra mis archivos sin mas ni mas. Además los billetes pertenecen al gobierno de Yucatán y la Comisión del henequén, NO AL GOBIERNO FEDERAL, ya que los estados y particulares al monento de la creación del Banco de México empezaron a tener prohibido emitir billetes y monedas.--Inri (talk) 18:37, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Gsebbaplenario.jpg

Hi, I received an OTRS release from this picture. But for some reason I can't upload the file (the editor was blocked here); I tried the older and the new uploader but it always fails. I try to use another name "File:Gsebbaplenario.jpg" but commons said it was deleted. It's there some kinf of cookie blocking the upload? Can someone find the original file and restore it?Willy Weazley 22:11, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Well, no file by that name has ever existed on Commons, you haven't provided a reason for the undeletion request, and you forgot to sign your entry. But after digging through the history of this page to identify who created this section, I see that you have uploaded File:Eric Millegan headshot 2015.JPG and posted this help desk question before changing your mind and removing the question again.
Wikimedia Commons (this site) is a repository of free, educational media files used by Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, and others. The free part is very important – it's a founding principle of Commons that we should only host content that can be used, modified and redistributed by anyone for any purpose, including commercial purposes. Therefore, Commons only hosts copyrighted content if the copyright holder has explicitly agreed to publish the content under a free license. File:Eric Millegan headshot 2015.JPG was deleted because there was no sign that the copyright holder had approved publication under a free license.
Based on your description in the help desk question, it sounds like File:Eric Millegan headshot 2015.JPG was a photo of you – presumably taken by someone else. Normally, the person who creates a photo is the copyright holder and therefore the only one who can issue a valid license. See Commons:OTRS for instructions on how to obtain and submit an appropriate release statement. LX (talk, contribs) 16:32, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Benedict XVI coat of arms with Tiara and Pallium.svg

The image in question is a "fastasy" in the official sense, it is true that the coat of arms of Pope Benedict XVI uses a mitre, but there is documentation where the papal tiara has been used. This includes on gifts to the Pope and at the Vatican Gardens. Fry1989 eh? 00:05, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Uploads by Jesmith627

UN symbols are generally considered PD. In the case of these logos, it is the UN olive branches, cog wheel and initials in the respective language, so these most likely also qualify for PD-textlogo. Fry1989 eh? 00:11, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
