Edit kind: Trying to upload a photo of the Westgard Pass Signage on SR168 for use on Wikipedia for California Mountains Passes.

Error Message: An automated filter has identified this edit as potentially unconstructive, and it has been disallowed. If this edit is constructive, please report this error.

Comments: I am in the process do listing, documenting and photographing all accessible CA mountain passes. Many mountain passes currently lack wikipedia pages and matching photos of the landmarks. I have been a wikipedia editor for a few years but this is my first photo that I am uploading to wikimedia commons (as it is the preferred way for wikipedia articles) to get down the process and was surprised to get the error message.

@Timanrnn: Hi, and welcome. I am sorry to inform you that you have triggered Special:AbuseFilter/153 by trying to cross-wiki upload a png image as a new user. Such uploads of png images are not allowed at all. You indicated it's your own work. Usually when someone uploads a png image, it's a copyright violation taken from the web. Please upload the full-size original of it per COM:HR, including any metadata, but it may be judged too complex to be under TOO in the country of origin as-is, so you may need to license it on your official website or social media or send permission via VRT. Also, any png image will look fuzzy when scaled down (due to design decisions discussed in phab:T192744) or jaggy when scaled up, so you may want to upload an svg or jpg version, too. If you can't get a compliant license, the image may still be uploaded to English Wikipedia in compliance with en:WP:F because we don't allow Fair Use here. If you use our Upload Wizard instead, you should be able to avoid that filter.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 09:26, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Jeff G.: what brought this to my attention was the usage of File:Flag of Austria.svg at w:Template:Country data Sztum. That template was created using File:POL Sztum flag.svg in 2016, and then it was immediately replaced with the Flag of Austria, which appears to be identical. Since I filed this report, I also found this website, which does appear to confirm that the flag of the city of Sztum, Poland, is in fact identical to the flag of Austria. So I shall return the Country data Sztum template to the original image file. Thank you for your input! P. I. Ellsworthed. put'r there 15:45, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
We see now that Austria's flag is a darker red than Sztum's flag, so the correction is noticable. P. I. Ellsworthed. put'r there 16:03, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I am sorry to inform you that you have triggered Special:AbuseFilter/153 by trying to cross-wiki upload a smaller (<50,000 bytes or <2,000,000 pixels) jpg photo as a new user. The photo you tried to upload is smaller, and you indicated it's your own work. Usually when someone uploads a smaller photo, it is a copyright violation taken from the web. If you took the photo yourself, please upload the full-size original of it per COM:HR, including EXIF metadata. If you did not take the photo, please see Commons:Licensing for why we can't accept it as-is, and have the photographer post Commons:Licensing compliant permission for such work on their website or social media presence or send the photo and permission via VRT with a carbon copy to you. If you can't get a compliant license, the photo may still be uploaded to English Wikipedia in compliance with en:WP:F because we don't allow Fair Use here. If you use our Upload Wizard instead, you should be able to avoid that filter.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 23:12, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Kaylianipshi: Hi, and welcome. I am sorry to inform you that you have triggered Special:AbuseFilter/153 by trying to cross-wiki upload png and smaller (<50,000 bytes or <2,000,000 pixels) jpg logos as a new user. Such uploads of png logos are not allowed at all. You indicated each is your own work. Usually when someone uploads a logo, it's a copyright violation taken from the web. Please upload the full-size original of it per COM:HR, including any metadata, but it may be judged too complex to be under TOO in the country of origin, so you may need to publish the logo and your permission for it on your official website or social media or send them via VRT. Also, any png image will look fuzzy when scaled down (due to design decisions discussed in phab:T192744) or jaggy when scaled up, so you may want to upload an svg or jpg version, too. If you can't get a compliant license, the logos may still be uploaded to English Wikipedia in compliance with en:WP:F because we don't allow Fair Use here. If you use our Upload Wizard instead, you should be able to avoid that filter.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 23:07, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

How is that dovecote related to a Purple Heart?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 16:55, 2 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Jeff - Thanks for the great advice. In regard to your question - After helping the American Legion National Headquarters in 2008 get a social media presence I started a social networking group on 20 Jan 2009 promoting the phrase Vets Helping Vets https://www.facebook.com/military.veterans/, to help those who try to navigate the VA system get the help they need, or at least try to direct them to the right person or organization. At present we have a tad over 20,000 people involved and for the last few years I have been working on a program to utilize doves (my hobby since 1975) to help combat wounded veterans, first responders, and others who have witnessed first hand a trauma and have been medically diagnosed as suffering from post-traumatic stress (aka PTSD) that doves can be a way to bring a little peace to their mind. The program launches at the end of the year, and because of my service to the military and veteran community I was asked if I would accept the designation as the first Purple Heart Dovecote in the United States. I gracefully accepted and on Flag Day and the 247th Army Birthday my loft was declared through proclamation by the 2021-2022 MOPH State Commander. For background on me see https://www.myveteran.org/ and/or Linkedin page at https://www.linkedin.com/in/homingpigeons/. Thanks again. David DMZveteran (talk) 17:23, 2 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
