Current requests[edit]

Files of user User:BavariaYachtbau[edit]

The files

have been recently speedy-deleted by user:Ellin Beltz. The deletion reason seems to have been that the files do not have identical metadata and therefore an own-work claim is dubious. The uploader is a confirmed account of Bavaria Yachtbau, a well-known german boatbuilding company (see en:Bavaria Yachtbau, de:Bavaria Yachtbau). That the company is not the photographer on itself is obvious, but that the company has the necessary rights for distributing their promotional images (which they obviously were) is very likely. We do have an OTRS ticket (#2012022710009281) about the account, so the content of this should also be considered when making a decision on these images. If something is still unclear, there should at least be a contact in that ticket to clarify the situation. (XenonX3: can you check that ticket?).

The images themselves would be very valuable, as they're among the best images of modern sailing yachts that we have. Others of similar good quality I've found seem to be obvious copyvios (that's a different story though). --PaterMcFly (talk) 10:03, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The files did not have any OTRS information, no descriptions and were uncategorized in addition to having two different photographers (uncredited). If restored, please take the time to adequately describe and categorize the images. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:45, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Of course. That is no problem at all. --PaterMcFly (talk) 07:55, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm not sure that the fact that this is a well known company is relevant here. Ticket:2012022710009281 does not come up when requested. Aside from a deleted logo, these are the only contributions from this user. We have no evidence that User:BavariaYachtbau is in fact the company -- it could well be a fan or customer of the company. We also typically require a free license via OTRS for images that are not PD, own work, or from freely licensed sources. We also need to know the actual author, because in most countries that determines the life of the copyright. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:36, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Is it possible that you don't have the rights to see that ticket? It might be on the permissions-de list. This edit is very unlikely to be fake. XenonX3 is admin and OS on dewiki. --PaterMcFly (talk) 16:41, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
I have pinged de:User::XenonX3 on their talk page on German Wikipedia. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 18:32, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
When I search for the ticket on the OTRS main page it comes back saying there is no result. But, of course, strange things happen. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:46, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I also cannot view this ticket. As a matter of principle, if an OTRS ticket provides the permission (i.e., foundation) for hosting on the Commons, it needs to be in a permissions queue accessible to Commons' OTRS volunteers. If the ticket is valid as claimed, please assign it to a permissions queue. Эlcobbola talk 16:06, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Exhibits at the the Lehi Museum IMG 1170.JPG[edit]

I do not understand why the image was deleted. Deror avi (talk) 16:23, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is a photograph of a man who is not named anywhere in the file name or file description. There are no useful categories. It is obviously not "own work" as claimed and you clearly have no right to put a CC license on it -- either it is PD or someone else owns the copyright. In order to show that it is PD, you will need to provide the date it was made or published, in addition to the name of the author, if known. You will also need to name the subject and show that he is notable. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:01, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

  • I would think that the fact that it is a museum exhibit is enough for notability, but otherwise agree with James. - Jmabel ! talk 19:59, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
Clarification -- an unnamed man is rarely notable. This man is, indeed, probably notable, but until we have a name we cannot make that judgement. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:25, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

 Not done . The file has two problems. At first, it has no source and this was immediate reason, why it got deleted. At second, depicted person is unidentified and that way unusable. Taivo (talk) 08:42, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Ramsey Water.jpg[edit]

I have written permission from photographer, Blair Bunting, to use photograph. Lowcawki (talk) 19:16, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Then why did you declare this as your own work? Please note also that permissions like "for use in Wikipedia only" are not sufficient. We require images that anyone may use for any purpose including commercial re-use. So if your permission includes these points or if it explicitely grants a Creative Commons 4.0 licence like you did, please forward a copy of the written permission to Once the email has been checked and approved by our team of volunteers, the file will be restored but this may take up to several weeks. De728631 (talk) 19:29, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

 Not done : Per my colleague, if a valid permission is received, then the image will be undeleted. Christian Ferrer (talk) 12:38, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Знак на Армијата на Република Македонија.svg[edit]

The PRP does not apply to simple geometric shapes like squares, triangles, or stars, which this is. It is a simple 12-point star, there is nothing original about that. We have much more complicated police stars on Commons from other countries. Fry1989 eh? 03:41, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

For reference: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Знак на Армијата на Република Македонија.svg. The problem is that we have no idea about the standards for TOO of Macedonia. Therefore, the PRP applies. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 22:55, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
As I stated, TOO does not matter for simple geometry. I asked the question of what is different between this file and File:Silver star.png, and nobody answered me. I don't think it is appropriate deleting the file without deciding if it is really any different from any other simple star geometry we have on Commons. I see nothing complicated enough about this to be deleted. Fry1989 eh? 18:25, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

File:USAF JAN15.pdf[edit]

i request undeletion of the file because the file is my own work created and dated Jan.15,2017 and the only changed two changes i made from the original to the new version are a) a correction on the word ´´in deed´´ to ´´indeed´´ and the change in the file name, from ´´USAF JAN15´´ which was the file (archive name on my computer) to the full name United States of Africa. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Justwisdom (talk • contribs) 04:26, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Quiron el Centauro Dicta el Primer Tratado Terapeutico, oleo sobre lienzo (590x410 cm) pintado por Vicente Puig y Antonio Pena en la Facultad de Medicina, Uruguay.jpg[edit]

This image may qualify for UNDELETION on the basis of FREEDOM OF PANORAMA {{FoP-Uruguay}}

The picture shows the claustro of the School of Medicine in Uruguay. In the background it can be seeing a mural painted by Vicente Puig and Antonio Pena. This photo has been uxed extensively public media for decades. It is frequently used to announce public activities or celebrations by the School of Medicine as may be seen in the following URLs .

The photo has even been used to feature tourism opportunities en Montevideo Uruguay as may be seen in the following link —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 21:26, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This file was not deleted because of the painting in the background, although that might be a problem. It was deleted both because there is no evidence that it has been freely licensed by the photographer and because the uploader did not put any license on it. In order for it to be restored to Commons, (a) the actual photographer must send a free license via OTRS and (b) someone fluent in Spanish must determine that either the painting is PD because its copyright has expired or that FOP covers works in schools. .     Jim . . . .

File:Funnel Space.pdf[edit]

Copyright Issues and Survival Significance of ‘Funnel Space’ Author of ‘funnel space’ 1. Copyright issue of ‘Funnel Space’: Contents of my article in internal magazine ‘Peking Man’ are adopted for ‘Funnel Space’, and copyright issues may be produced. A few questions should be clarified here: 1. ‘Peking Man’ is an internal magazine without sociability. 2. I have not entered into any agreement with the magazine ‘Peking Man’. 3. Papers published in magazine ‘Peking Man’ are not integral (references are deleted). 4. The paper is not modified by magazine ‘Peking Man’. Therefore, the magazine ‘Peking Man’ is a platform for discussing issues. Papers can not be issued publicly. There is no copyright issue about ‘Funnel Space’.

2. Survival Significance of ‘Funnel Space’ It is proposed in ‘Funnel Space’ that modern people survive and dominate the world by new attribute of biology- spirit flow rather than intelligence improvement. Human beings are discussed since more than 2.5 million years ago till the late pleistocene: homo habilis is regarded as beginning, development of human beings looks like tree-shaped development, thereby intelligence was improved, and human beings were varied. However, intelligence from human brain capacity did not guarantee survival of human beings in different categories in the late pleistocene, and modern people were separated only. It is obvious that improvement of biological intelligence is not the master key of survival. It is only a mode of limited competition under evolution trajectory shared by biology. However, human beings respect high intelligence in the concept. ‘High intelligence’ concept of modern people has been formed, which must lead to behavior direction. The behavior direction goes against nature. Meanwhile, it leads to a series of wrong theories. ‘Funnel Space’ theory is proved by the evidence chain formed during human evolution. The existence of ‘Funnel Space’ theory is confirmed in the process of human evolution. Existence of ‘Funnel Space’ theory is confirmed in the process of human evolution. There is no way to discuss the process of human evolution and reveal source of modern people except by ‘Funnel Space’ theory. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zx13007202263 (talk • contribs) 04:16, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Hope that's all ok.

Thanks Gareth --Garethbaxendale (talk) 12:28, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First of all, the image is way too small to be useful. Regarding the permission, I'm afraid a simple statement on this noticeboard is not enough, but we need an email sent by a representative of the journal's publisher.

We are Tandem Talent, S.L., the agency that represents the actor Luis Callejo. In his name, and on behalf of his rights to own image, we asked the deletion of the file Luis_Callejo.jpg, published in the article whithout his permission. We uploaded his picture, our own work, Luis_Callejo_Martinez.jpg, by request of himself.

Please, undelete it, as it has all the rights and the actors' permission.

This image is not a copyright violation. I have tried to upload it in various ways (directly on wikipedia commons and through Flickr) and it still gets deleted. I need to know what I am doing wrong and the images keep getting deleted, so that I can upload this logo and other photos that have been deleted.

Thank you in advance. --ContentGenie (talk) 10:00, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

We have full rights to this image. Please undo deletion. Also please let us know if there is any method by which someone is able to somehow provide documentation of their rights to an image. I am not sure how we could do that, but of course we are more than willing to comply with any reasonable standard.

File:Bill Winters on the San Antonio Gunslingers.jpg[edit]

I request this file be undeleted. It is not a team publicity photo as asserted by user C. Fred. It is a photo of Bill Winters taken by his coach Mike Barry with Bill's own camera. Additionally, the San Antonio Gunslingers team does not even exist anymore, but that photo doesn't exist anywhere except for in Bill's personal belongings and was never under the ownership of the team. If I need Bill to send an email to OTRS to verify this, that is fine. I have several other photos of Bill that were taken by friends or family and would like the know the proper way to handle this in the future, so I do not have to repeatedly deal with deletions. Is it as simple as writing this information somewhere when I upload it?

I would at this point also like to express frustration with the way this has been handled by administrators/moderators. I am new to Wikipedia, but have read the copyright information section for uploads. My goal for creating the page is obvious, and the admins do not seem to be especially helpful. Instead, they do not reply to what I write on their talk pages while nominating the photos for deletion. They also did not reply or even ask questions on the photo page when it was nominated, but instead made a false assertion that the photo was a team publicity photo. An admin, INeverCry, then ignored my comment and deleted it. I don't know etiquette here, but that comes off as rude at best, and negligent at worst.

Please let me know about the photos, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks and kind regards,
