Image:Turkish battleship Mesudiye.jpg

Hi. On '14:47, 22 March 2008 ABF (Talk | contribs) deleted "Image:Turkish battleship Mesudiye.jpg" ‎ (Deleted because "Was in Category:Unknown as of 14 March 2008; still missing essential information". using TW)'

I have more recently acquired an interest in the page where this image was used, and was wondering exactly what the problem was and whether it can be restored. The image had been transferred and deleted from the English wiki, where it has now been undeleted. However, there does not seem to be an obvious problem why it should not be here. I was wondering if you could explain the problem? Sandpiper (talk) 23:12, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

No problem. There is no real source. User:GeorgHH marked it with the {{nsd}} tag. The author and his date of death was missing. And in the image which is now at that place its the same. abf /talk to me/ 08:11, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
There are a lot of similar files from Category:GWPDA which seem happy here (not to mention many many where the author is unknown). I imagine the original upload was at least partially tagged GWPDA, but as it was deleted and a new one uploaded rather than undeleted I can't tell. There seems to have once been a debate about it and some GWPDA files were fixed up to people's satisfaction while othes got deleted before anyone attended to them.

Loock at the talk page if you're really interested. For the protokoll: I will now block your IP for the "bullshit" and for abusing multiple accounts. abf /talk to me/ 12:00, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
This is stupid. It won't help. -- 13:53, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Your recent blocks

Good day ABF, would you mind sharing the "checkuser" evidence on your recent blocks? I haven't found anywhere were a checkuser have confirmed this here. Regards, --Kanonkas(talk) 09:14, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, but this isnt an open cu-progress, I will mail you. abf /talk to me/ 12:00, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Das ist ein anderer. Gruß --Bubo 17:01, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Ich vertraue dir da mehr als jedem anderen Wikipedianer, desshalb entsperrt. Beobachte ihn, wenn er Weissmann-anwandlungen zeigt wars das aber. abf /talk to me/ 19:50, 27 August 2008 (UTC)


Hello, please have a look at Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests#Image:Cafe_Lipstick.jpg. Regards, Spiritia 20:16, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

There where two issues about that Image: Once there was a native-languaged user who told me there is a problem with comercial use of that Image and the second thing was that the permissioning person is not clearly the photographor (there was no corespondence with the OTRS afaik. I hope I remember well. abf /talk to me/ 17:42, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
The deleted image is absolutely identical to this one, as linked from here, where the name Nikola Gruev stays just under the right bottom corner of the picture. This is the name of the photographer whom my colleague User:5ko (Petko Yotov), one of the founders of the BG WP branch, asked for permission almost 4 years ago. This permission has been originally published (in BG and EN) on a subpage of BG WP, as linked from the template. This is the first time I hear of an OTRS permission, to the best of my knowledge this permission email has never been forwarded to the OTRS team... So... I think that your second issue is resolved.
As far as the first issue, I explained the case on the undeletion request and do believe that the problem was resolved an year ago (exactly one year ago...) and I don't want to further harass Mr Gruev. Besides, as I said in the UndelReq I see no problem with releasing different copies of the same work under different licenses. Mr Gruev declared that he was aware of the GFDL conditions when giving the permission and he was fine with releasing the images under this license. Please contact him (his email provided in the undeletion request, he has a command of English), explain yourself, ask for removal of the NC notice, ask again for permission, suggest the OTRS option, whatever you like. I don't want to sound rude and belittle anyone's copyright concerns, but at present I have awfully lots of pending work on- and off-wiki and dealing with problems which seem to me already dealt, goes very low in my priority list :-) (By the way, this cafe is nothing worth mentioning, I'd even think that the image is not fully in-scope, so I am in no way advocating for this particular picture...) Warm regards, Spiritia 20:35, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I do not have enough time either. Lets wait what the udel-req brings. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 20:37, 30 August 2008 (UTC)


Er will hier mitarbeiten und keine Accounts spammen. Wird das nicht deutlich? -- 13:52, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Hehe, du hörst dich an wie cesar, er sprach auch immer in der dritten Person von ihm selbst. Deine IP ist nun 3 Tage dicht. Kommst du wieder sperr ich beide rangen. Liebste Grüße, abf /talk to me/ 15:27, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Inactivity notice

Hey, thanks for doing the notification. I think maybe the notice might be a bit off, in that everyone is signing here: Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2008, but the notice only points to Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section. I moved Magnus's note from the latter to the former. I think we need to get clarification on this, and if you have a canned note, maybe change it for next time. For this time, I don't think it's a big problem, do you? Again, thanks! ++Lar: t/c 15:13, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, next time we'll better change the template, but I belive for this time its okay. Thanks and regards, abf /talk to me/ 15:28, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
