Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:OsmAnd[edit]

This one has to take the cake for the most frivolous deletion. Two users mention that none of the screenshots meet the threshold of originality and thus should be kept. How does User:Srittau decide to close?

Deleted: Only one image had a proper license tag, all others were "licensed" under a clearly invalid CC license.

Translation: I can't be arsed to change around a few licenses (which could literally be copy-pasted from the page that was kept), so instead I'm just going to throw everything out. This kind of disregard for fixing problems is pretty rampant here and quite disappointing considering it's readers who get affected and reduces the utility of the project. Opencooper (talk) 04:03, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is one of the most frivolous undeletion requests I have seen in a long time. If the uploader (or anyone else) can't be arsed to fix their own license in the 1.5 months this DR was open, it is clearly not the admin's task to do so, especially given our backlog and number of deletion requests and speedy deletions on any given day. But of course it is easy to demand of other people to sacrifice their own free time. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 09:08, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Weak excuse. Would have taken you as much time as you typed in this reply to copy-paste the license templates from the non-deleted file. If you're really so pressed for time you could even post a request in the village pump for assistance. It also shouldn't be an admin's task to delete perfectly fine files just because there's a backlog. Opencooper (talk) 02:29, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
The sad thing is, if you had just asked to restore these files and fix the template, I would probably have done it. But given your shitty attitude I am not inclined to do just the slightest bit of work for you. I wonder if any other admin will, just to be abused by you. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 08:51, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
the deletions will continue until the attitude improves. the civility burden is on the uploader. charming. Slowking4 § Sander.v.Ginkel's revenge 11:16, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Do you want those licenses to apply to all restored files from this category?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 02:37, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
If the screenshots only contain simple geometric shapes, then yes (though logos can always be cut out, as has been done in the past). I can only go off of the linked discussion though as the files are all currently deleted and can't be viewed. Opencooper (talk) 02:52, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Don't think we should be requiring OTRS for uploads from spouses. U.S. law allows for a "duly authorized agent" (not well defined) being able to do almost anything copyright-wise (including file registrations I believe) for the actual copyright owner; a spouse would probably fall under that (unless the author complains of course).

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question @Ruthven, Clindberg: how do you suggest to mark it to avoid redeletion after nominating again by a user who notices that uploader is not the author? Ankry (talk) 12:47, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
@Ankry: When you undelete a file, you always add {{undeleted}} template in the talk page (and eventually the {{deleted}} template when the deletion is due to a DR)). It suffices for anyone to be able to check past deletion history. --Ruthven (msg) 16:35, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
@Ruthven: I doubt bots will check that. And checking whether it is uploader's work or not may be a bot job. Ankry (talk) 17:53, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
@Ankry: When you consider a UDR done or not done, please also close it with {{Udelh}} and {{Udelf}}.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:45, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: I consider it done when the OTRS agent added the OTRS template or nominates for redeletion. I would prefer OTRS requests to bo closed by the nominator, but this is to be discussed elsewhere. Ankry (talk) 17:50, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
@Ankry: Fair enough, I hope @Arthur Crbz understands that.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 18:09, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
Not sure to understand why Jeff G. mentions me in this discussion. Undeletion requests have always been closed by the administrator handling the request. {{undeleted}} is used to keep track of the request and if permission is insufficient, OTRS agent can ask for speedy deletion.
OTRS agents can close these requests but you need to know that sometimes we need several days before adding the permission template on the file (asking to the uploader to provide permission from another person OR clarifying information for instance). So requests could remain open for days... Unless we create a new page dedicated to OTRS agents ? --Arthur Crbz (talk) 08:33, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

File:North Korea FA.png[edit]

Hi, this file is the logo of the North Korean Football Association, and it can be seen here. The file was deleted from Commons because "the ball makes the logo pass the threshold for originality". However, since there are hundreds of thousands of such football icons, this one cannot be original. We have hundreds of them on Commons, see Category:Association football icons and Category:Association football logos. Please undelete and mark as PD-shape.

Recuperação do Arquivo File:Cidade de Coluna (MG)-2018.jpg[edit]

Português do Brasil: Vim pedir a recuperação do arquivo File:Cidade de Coluna (MG)-2018. Venho novamente falar que ele é de minha autoria. Além disso, ele é essencial para a visualização da página da Wikipédia em português Coluna (Minas Gerais). Eu acho que o arquivo foi eliminado por eu não preencher corretamente as informações sobre as licenças (não sou muito bom com isso). E peço que recuperem esse arquivo de minha autoria ou deixem eu carregar uma nova versão do arquivo.

Respondendo a sua pergunta da página de recuperação de arquivos, observe bem no vídeo: ele é antigo, e o formato da imagem é em 3×4, enquanto a minha foto está em formato 16×9. Não teria como eu tirar uma foto desse vídeo, senão ele ficaria em péssima qualidade. O arquivo não carrega metadados porque a foto foi tirada de outro celular. Guerreiro do Vale (talk) 13:31, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Answering your question from the file retrieval page, look closely at the video: it is old, and the image format is 3 × 4, while my photo is in 16 × 9 format. It would not be like taking a picture of this video, otherwise it would be in bad quality. The file does not load metadata because the photo was taken from another cell phone.

@Guerreiro do Vale: The image is reasonable resolution (1040×584) but contains no camera info so it may be hard to prove that it is indeed your image and not made by somebody else. You can try to prove that contacting COM:OTRS; however, if you fail, the image may not be stored in Wikimedia Commons due to COM:PCP (reasonable doubt about authorship). Please note, that you may upload a photo as {{own}} if you made the original photo yourself using your camera (and if you did, it is hard to explain why did you not upload the original photo, full-size with camera info in EXIF). If there is a reason not to publish the original photo, you can also provide it to OTRS, where it will be kept private. As we have many photos, that are claimed to be Own work why they are actually not, we must be extremely carefull axepting photos that atuthorship cannot be verified, even if the image cannot be find in the Internet using services like Google Images.

The files were erroneously marked as copyright violations, when they actually aren't. (See the thread at User talk:Secondarywaltz#Re Chomsky photos for a detailed explanation). Σ (talk) 18:49, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram voting info.svg Info unsure if the uploader's explanation is enough here to prove that the uploader and not UMass DML owns copyright to the photos. IMO, a more reliable information from an identifiable person via email to OTRS might be needed here to explain more precisely relations between the photographer/uploader and UMass DML. However, any other opinions are welcome. Ankry (talk) 12:55, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
@Ankry: Did you read the thread? Because all the objections you note were answered therein. Are there any specific points that you find to be insufficiently explanatory? Σ (talk) 01:48, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
@Σ: Yes, I did. Let's assume, that you are right. And lets assume that in few years, when you are no longer an active user, we (or WMF) receive fake copyright claim from somebody claiming that they have boght copyright for this image from UMass DML, and they wish take-down and fee from reusers. How can we reject such a claim basing on declaration from an anonymous user only? That is the reason, that I think we need some independent or verifiable confirmation of your (an anonymous user's) words, eg. that Umass DML is a company that loans cameras only and do not claim copyright to any images or that you have some real agreement with them. Note, that I do not object undeletion here, I only raise some doubts for consideretion. Fake copyright claims are real. Ankry (talk) 04:59, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
It sounds like you're asking Σ to out themselves.
Did you look at the UMass DML website? It's pretty obviously a university service, and not a company. This is a standard arangement at universities I'm familiar with and have attended - you borrow a camera, and have full rights to copyrights to any media producted. Legoktm (talk) 05:11, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
On what basis, the metadata? The DML website clearly explains their policy on lending equipment to university affiliates. The metadata of a photo is text that can be changed by anyone who has photo editing software. I could do it to any file on Commons. I could do it to yours. You could do it to mine. If a hypothetical copyright troll did somehow manage to buy the copyright to all pictures produced by the university, could they come up with a plausible claim of copyright consistent with the DML's loan policy? Maybe. But based on metadata? That would be pretty thin ice to walk on. Σ (talk) 06:32, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

The file File:Arnab Ray.jpg was given to me by the original author[edit]

Hello,

The file File:Arnab Ray.jpg was given to me by the original author who holds the copyright with the understanding that I will be uploading it to Wikipedia for updating his own wikipedia page. Please suggest what would be the appropriate copyright license to use under this scenario. I was not sure so I may have selected an option that conveyed the wrong information.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose According to our rules, for previously published images, a written permission from actual copyrigt holder (following COM:OTRS instructions) is needed or an evidence that initial publication was under a free license (Facebook is not free). Moreover, to accept a permission from the person depicted, an evidence is needed that the image is selfie (does not seem to be) or that the photographer has transferred copyright to him.

@BarryAK: You have successfully uploaded File:Barry Alexander King Singer Songwriter.jpg (but with a defective description). You seem to be the subject of that photo, so here is some advice: The owner and subject of a photo is not usually the copyright holder, the photographer usually is. Please have the photographer send permission via OTRS with a copy to you. We do not host articles here on Wikimedia Commons, English Wikipedia does. There, you are cautioned to read en:WP:MFA, en:WP:COI, and en:WP:AUTO.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 22:15, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

File:GiancarloSturloni.jpg[edit]

I had the authorization of Giancarlo Sturloni, author of the photo
— Preceding unsigned comment added by Lascribaegizia (talk • contribs) 17:06, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First, every permission concerning copyright must be in written form; otherwise invalid. We cannot verify on-wiki whether you have appropriate permission and whether it is valid. Second, as Giancarlo Sturloni is the depicted person; he is unlikely the photographer, so his permission may be void. Third, we generally do not accept permissions from third parties; a permission should come directly from the actual copyright owner. That all can be resolved via email in OTRS, read COM:OTRS. And be patient, this is not a short way. Ankry (talk) 17:27, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

File:Faraz Shibli portrait.jpg[edit]

I am the copyright owner of this portrait. I have emailed my permission for its use to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org. The original, uncropped photo is on my website, www.farazshibli.com/travel. The cropped version of the photo appears on some of my social media and other accounts. You can see that the email address I sent my permission from matches the email address on my website, where the original photo appears. Please could you restore the photo? Thank you.

File:The Dog.jpg[edit]

Mistaken speedy deletion. Yesterday I requested deletion of File:A Dog.jpg as a degraded version of what when was available as File:The Dog.jpg. The former has JPEG artefacts one of which is now highlighted as an image note. The latter is compressed milder. Soon I came offline, then a sock puppet tried to remove deletion templates and edit warred, and in the ensuing confusion another file (better quality, or probably the source) was deleted.

I tried to obtain satisfaction from Magog the Ogre but he rejected my request. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:11, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Or, alternatively, just upload the better-quality JPEG over A_Dog.jpg. I am too lazy to search for it in the browser cache, whereas you sysops can extract it quickly. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:42, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I suggest restoring and merging the images. However, as the existing one is subject of a DR I also suggest to delay any action until the DR is closed to avoid larger mess. Ankry (talk) 05:12, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Requesting my photo uploads to Be undeleted

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Your only deleted upload when you added this request was File:Self made - freelance model casting360.jpeg. The file was deleted because you did not specify where it comes from, who holds the copyright and if it was published under a free licence. This information is required to undelete the image.
Please note also that we do not allow selfies and other personal images of users who have not made any substantial contributions at Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia or Wikimedia Commons. Commons is not your personal webhost but only collects images that can be used for educational purposes. I have therefore also deleted your other uploads per Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by LaTonya Jean Lawrence.
