(un)deletion of some of our files[edit]

Many thanks for your help and suggestions. We will proceed accordingly. With best, ESDC Secretariat

Help ...[edit]

Hello ... Pls Delete all Old & New version of this file

Thanks :)

« Wemmick's Castle »[edit]

Thanks for the information. You're absolutely right. The best thing is to remove the file from Commons. It's not all that important, since it's not a genuine illustration. Personally, I'm deleting from the article Les Grandes Espérances. Best wishes, Robert Ferrieux

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Hopefully you took my comment in the spirit it was meant, as a 'teasing' joke. What you said was quite apt, just a bit of a 'wall of text'... I try to keep things friendly.. the OP's comment was rather not, so a bit of a digression seemed in order. Revent (talk)

Oh, no offense taken ;-) That's hardly my worst example of a stream-of-consciousness wall of text reply on here either... I have some pretty long ones sometimes ;-)


this got archived within hours. :-( Missed it?

Taiwanese FOP Problem-Aftermath[edit]

Kai3952 contacted me again regarding the problem of Taiwanese FOP. To determine appropriate actions, I have read through your comments on the HD discussion thread. However, I'm not sure about what is your exact opinion regarding the issue, besides from the factor of de minimis.
I'll be grateful if you can summarize your viewpoint and opinion to me, so that I can explain some more authoritative opinion to the stakeholders, and determine follow-up actions (such as opening a amendment discussion on COM:VPC, etc.). Many, many thanks.廣九直通車 (talk) 12:58, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

By the text of the law, I think we had always assumed there was at least a non-commercial restriction on FoP in Taiwan. Japan has much the same wording in their law, and we have had a similar interpretation there. Of course, it's always possible we are reading the laws wrong, which can especially happen when we are going by an English translation and not the native text. Reke's finding of a government opinion was pretty persuasive to me, that we had been reading the law incorrectly -- that pretty clearly says that commercial use of photos of buildings with graffiti (and therefore murals) on them would seem to be OK, in which case our interpretation must have been wrong. So, I was mostly OK with the changes to policy that Reke made. I assume that Kai3952 had been nominating a number of works for deletion under the original policy text. FoP deletions are always controversial, especially of buildings, since we hardly have any court precedence that such things are really a problem, and none in Taiwan -- so such deletion requests do tend generate anger, even in places where there are some precedents. It can conflict with typical practice in a country, or people think it's OK since all non-commercial uses are OK and that is mostly what they see. Without court case interpretations, we have to judge the wording in a law based on similar wording in other laws. The most effective way to argue against our interpretation is to find some court precedents, or at the very least some significant legal opinions, which Reke did for Taiwan. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:53, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
I think you need to take a good look at Reke's talk page. He basically keep faulting me for my mistake and has told me to “no common sense, lack of correct judgment about policies.” This type of thing has annoyed me for a long time. I don't know what he wants from me. Now Reke is coming to my talk page on zh.wikipedia and attacked me personally (he said I have Asperger's syndrome). I have been harassed by him for more than a month. Who can help me?--Kai3952 (talk) 12:39, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Ship categories[edit]

Dear Carl,

first of all, I would like to thank you for making such an effort to categorize ships and creating new categories. I have now tried to create a category for tugboat following your example, but I could not find a reliable source that would provide substantial technical data on the ship itself. Can you please help? Best regards, Mosbatho (talk) 10:20, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Great, thanks for that. I added some details. is a good source for info on a good many Russian (and Soviet bloc) ships. They will typically have a link to the Russian ship register too, like they do for your tugboat, if registered there -- that has a lot of the technical data. But you can also search directly on the register as well. Marinetraffic or many of the other general ship databases often has some of the technical info, but the registers are usually the most accurate and complete. Carl Lindberg (talk) 11:25, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistance and for completing this categroy with the missing information. So far i have only used marinetraffic, but not all infos were to be found there. --Mosbatho (talk) 20:19, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Template:PD-Philippines-artistic work[edit]

Hello. Is the wording at {{PD-Philippines-artistic work}} OK? I moved this from "Template:PD-Philippines-architecture", so that this will become a multipurpose template for Philippine DW works (of artistic works including architecture), and heavily revised it according to prevailing status right now. Hopefully there shall come the Wikimedia Foundation-IPOPHL dialogue, of which IPOPHL has been open since November 2020 (per their Nov. 2020 email reply to Higad Rail Fan), in which FOP will be the principal matter. JWilz12345 (Talk|Contrib's.) 15:04, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

@Clindberg: hello. Is the revision of the template now OK? JWilz12345 (Talk|Contrib's.) 04:44, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

So we are using 1951 as the architectural line, but 1972 for registration? If works were still subject to registration, wouldn't architectural works be the same? Copyright became automatic with Berne (not requiring registration). That may not matter much, because any work registered after 1942 would still have been under copyright in 1972 and its copyright got extended then. I might move the wordy citations to the talk page, to try and keep the size down, and have more room to explain it better (and document the uncertainty of the 1951-1972 period). I might make the 50pma provision first, as it applies to all works and is the most common one and needs no qualifiers. Then make a second section about architecture before 1951, then I guess another on the registration. Unpublished works sounds like they kept their copyright forever, so date of creation did not mean too much. Carl Lindberg (talk) 06:45, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Feel free to modify so, to make it more concise and readable but still containing essential elements. By the way, I once again messaged IPOPHL-Bureau of Copyright and Related Rights via Messenger yesterday (Wednesday), in an attempt to get the clarification on the status of the 1951–72 buildings, in relation to the accession to Berne plus the 1955 Presidential Proclamation. However, I browsed IPOPHL's article on the history of IP in our country, the Berne was mentioned once but the Presidential Proclamation wasn't.
