David Chaum[edit]

Dr. Chaum authorized me in a PM to use the photo from his homepage. I ask you to put it back, where it belongs. Could you PSE discuss such issues before acting this hasty?

TY. Now, PSE go to the homepage of Dr. Chaum and ask him, if you do not believe me. Psycho Chicken

Comment on the oppose vote[edit]

I'd just like to comment on the oppose vote if that's okay. I suppose I can understand how you want me to have more edits to the Commons namespace. However, I could rack up an "impressive" number of edits by just going through every image listed on Commons:Deletion requests for a month or so and adding {{delete}}, but that doesn't really show anything. I hoped instead that my contributions to both Wikipedia and to the library here would have carried more weight. Also, just out of curiosity, I noticed when you were nominated for adminship on January 16 that you also only had two edits to the Commons: namespace. I'm not trying to be a douche bag or anything, but I'd just like you to possibly reconsider {{oppose}}ing me simply because of the fact that I only have two edits as well. At any rate, thanks for at least voting; I didn't expect so few. :) --tomf688 (talk - email) 19:17, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Your Comments at my RfA[edit]

Je sais que je n'ai beaucoup de modifications au Commons. That's why I don't consider my RfA that much of a deal, I just want to help where it's needed. If you think it's useful and/or necessary for me to have more edits on Commons, where would you find my edits-to-be very useful? Thanks for your reply in advance. NielsF 06:24, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Help with license Image:FrankGambale.jpg[edit]

Could you please help with license/copright of that image? Somebody pointed out (in my discussion) that I should use {{PermissionOTRS}}. Whats next?

  1. Should I add the tag to the picture page?
  2. Should I delete the {no license...} tag?
  3. Contact a you (as described in Template:PermissionOTRS to confirm the permission?!

Thanks --Nil dib 07:46, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

I took the photo from the english wikipedia so i think it is now free, isn't it? Thanx Guanxito 12:06, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Ok now I understand, I will delete it from the spanish wikipedia (where I used it) but i do not know how to delete it from wiki commons. Adios! bye bye Guanxito 13:01, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Category:Food of Turkey[edit]

Hello Bastique, some time ago I marked Category:Turkish Food with a speedydelete-tag, because it was a double of Category:Turkish food. You've deleted both and created Category:Food of Turkey. This is another possible name for the category but it doesn't really fit to most if the other labels in Category:Food by country. I think it would help to navigate, if the names follow the same rule and I would prefer to rebuild Category:Turkish food. What do you think? --Lyzzy 07:47, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Hey Bastique, thanks a lot for your vote for my photo on the featured pictures candidates page. There is a new version of it now. The disturbing green wastebin got removed. As i didnt know if i can just replace the old photo with the new edited version I withdrew the original version and nominated the new version. Do u want to shift your vote to the new version? :) Regards --AngMoKio 20:20, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Category:Egyptian Museum[edit]

Hello. Why did you change the Category:Egyptian Museum to Category:Museums in Egypt. The Egyptian Museum is considered to have the best collection of antiquities from Ancient Egypt and we have many photos here that justify a separate category. There are also many museums in Egypt. --JLCA 11:23, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Just to make this clear: The Egyptian Museum is ONE museum. Category:Museums in Egypt held and should hold pictures connected to this museum in my point of view. --Avatar 11:13, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi Bastique. The link is There's another similar station I like as well Have fun. :-) Arnomane 09:06, 24 June 2006 (UTC)


Hi Bastique, thanks for uploading lepidoptera images. I have seen, that many of these images are redundant, so I have some hints for you. Please don't upload the entire compact flash card or whatever your cam uses. ;-) Select only the best image from each view. Try to capture the whole animal.

You created some new cats within Nymphalidae (as far as I have seen) - thats nice! There are some rules for linking and categorizing images within a taxonomic tree. If no article exists for the species, create one, and link the file name inside this article via gallery. Don't categorize the image itself. The article should only have one taxonomic cat (Nymphalinae and not Nymphalinae and Nymphalidae)! No rule without an exception: if you have an unidentified species you can categorize it with Unidentified Images of Butterflies and (if you know it) the familiy or subfamily cat. Last but not least: Please forgive me my terrible english! Best regards, --Olei 14:18, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:99px-Castlebar crest.png. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL-self}} to release it under the GFDL or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Commons-l subscription[edit]

Hello Bastique/archive4,

as per Commons talk:Administrators, I am asking all admins to subscribe to commons-l, a mailing list for Wikimedia Commons policy and project discussion. Since many admins are only on Commons infrequently, this is a good way to alert people about important happenings. The mailing list is nominally multilingual, but predominantly English.

If you are already subscribed to commons-l, I apologize for bothering you, and you are free to ignore this message. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail account, feel free to leave me a message, and I can send you a GMail invite. Traffic on the mailing list is relatively low, and we do not expect admins to read all messages to the list, but it would be nice if you could check on it at least every few weeks. Thanks for your time,--Eloquence 22:53, 4 July 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the support and the congratulations. I've already begun deleting a few bad images. Jkelly 16:02, 7 August 2006 (UTC)


I support the decision and the image. It is unfortunate this had to happen as well as the reaction of some uncivilized users on following the procedure strictly. Lycaon 17:18, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Stop shouting! (Another reason to vote in contra.) You should read the discussion and think an instant before you do something. I was talking about a German stamp being a good replacement for the photo. Not a Falkland Stamp. Besides you did not correct the description page of the image. And no, you are not helping me to close the discussion if you produce double work cross checking yours. --ALE! ¿…? 22:51, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Sobre Jery Sandoval IV[edit]

Hola Bastique.

Quiero decirte que las fotos de Jery Sandoval no tienen problema alguno en cuanto a Copyrights pues ésta fue tomada por un amigo internauta mejicano en una fiesta a la cual Jery Sandoval fue; mi amigo me pidió que la subiese ya que no se la pasa mucho en el computador a diferencia mia.

Además recientemente fui atorizado a través de un e-mail por Televisa (la propietaria de todo lo relacionado con Jery Sandoval)para usar las fotos de ella exclusivamente en Wikipedia.

Gracias por tu atención y espero que no me vuelvan a borrar las fotos de ella. Todos sus fans estaríamos muy tristes.

--S.V.B.E.E.V. 21:11, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

I just wanted to tell you that [[Jery Sandoval] pictures have no problem regarding copyright, since they were taken by a mexican friend from internet on a party where Jery Sandoval assisted. My friend asked me to upload it since he doesn't spend much time at the PC, unlike me.
Besides I was recenly authorized by Televisa via email (who owns the material related to Jery Sandoval) to use pictures of her "exclusively" at Wikipedia:
Thanks fot your attention and I hope the pictures dont' get redeleted. All the fans would be very sad.
Well, while it would be nice to show us the email proof, the fact is that we cannot use "for wikipedia only pictures" at commons. Therefore they were deleted. Sicne as you pointed , televisa owns the copyright, televisa would have to show us proof of the release under a free license (not just "for wikipedia only")
Bueno, mientras sería bueno que nos muestres la prueba, el hecho es que no podemos usar fotos "con permiso exclusivo para wikipedia" en commons. Por lo tanto, tienen que ser borradas. Dado uqe, como señalas, televisa es la que posee lo derechos de tales materiales, necesitaríamos prueba de que televisa liberó las imagenes bajo una licencia libre. No basta con que sea "sólo para wikipedia". Drini 21:32, 23 August 2006 (UTC)


I noticed at User talk:Eragon18 that you've deleted one image uploaded by Eragon18. I've tagged two more with nld, but they are probably copyvios too; if you happen to know anything about this, could you take a look at them? Cnyborg 21:27, 23 August 2006 (UTC)


Vi que has colocado un cartel de borrado de la imagen, cuando he pedido a Donna Hilton en forma expresa la licencia GNU y me he molestado en aclararlo en el sumario citando el mensaje de quien es propietaria de la imagen ("I give you a GNU Free Documentation Licence for the following photographs: and"). Le solicito que por favor quite el cartel, y si tiene algun tipo de duda sobre la veracidad de la licencia puede preguntárselo a la dueña aquí. Muchas gracias. --Sking 01:05, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Bureaucrat[edit]

Does the country of origin make a difference? I think the language is more important. Maybe ask User:Anna? Some more Germans? pfctdayelise (translate?) 05:06, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

Why does timezone matter? Bureaucrats don't do anything so urgent. If you want Chinese speakers, try perhaps User:Fanghong or User:Shizhao (he is a steward I believe). pfctdayelise (translate?) 01:19, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

You know what, Bastique, I wrote a peculiar comment on your b'crat nomination (which, I realized after reading, didn't make any sense), but in fact it would be just as well to nominate a dozin more b'crats, like they have done on Spanish Wikipedia. / Fred Chess 21:23, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Re: IRC[edit]


Just wondering... do you ever get on IRC? We could use a Russian expert at #wikimedia-commons every once in a while, notably with the Template:PD-Soviet debate going on... Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 17:16, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

No. I didn't play with IRC. Main point - it's yet another distraction (I have much of them, be:Special:Recentchanges is main for my Wikipedia time). I'm definitely not a en:Julius Ceaser :-(
I could install software, but don't sure that I'll have too much time to be available.
As for expert - it's very loud word for my law knowledge :-) I think User:Lupo know subject much better then me. I agree with arguments of Template talk:PD-Soviet#Retroactivity redux (I read original Russian Supreme Court ruling), so only images with {{PD-Russia}} could be left on Commons. Main problem - to find out authors and date of their death.

Confused over Image:Laracroft.JPG[edit]

Hi Bastique, you got me confused here. A week ago another admin decided to keep the image and you've added a deletion nomination for it today. Could you please add your objections to the deletion page and/or contact Shizao on this matter? Cheers, Siebrand 22:15, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

It could be simply stated as follows: When I saw the image the first time, I thought it was a woman dressed up as Lara Croft. That could be simply excused as a "woman in a costume". Having seen the image Image:Laracroft-neu.jpg, I realized this was a mannequin, clearly designed to be the character Lara Croft, which is very heavily copyrighted. It's a minor distinction, but one that changed my decision nevertheless. Bastique
Ah, yes, I had the same reservations and I also think the images should be deleted. Thanks for clearing this up. Siebrand 06:00, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
Oh, is it a mannequin? That changes my opinion too. No-one said this. / Fred Chess 08:20, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Image:EU flag.png[edit]

Image deletion warning Image:EU flag.png has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this image, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue. If the file is up for deletion because it has been superseded by a superior derivative of your work, consider the notion that although the file may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new file.
In all cases, please do not take the deletion request personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!

In this link (you can accede to that link from here) of the site of the museum you can ask for the permission to make photographic reproductions.

--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 22:30, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

English: Sorry, I have been studying the image. The exposed data are true, but I cannot give a definitive answer and I am not able to relate in English the complication that the subject has. I can't say what I want in english, although I will try it.
Images of sculptures in public places can be photographed and be published in Spain (spanish law, article 35,2), but it's a museum outdoors: I do not know if the place of the statue is public or private, I do not know if the place belongs to the municipality of Madrid or to the museum.
In addition, in this link of the site of the museum you can ask for the permission to make photographic reproductions of the museum (the commercial use, without paying, is not allowed).
Nevertheless, seeing this image of the statue I think that the statue is in the street, but the museum locates it in its interior (number 12 of the map of this link)
Since I am not able to decide, tomorrow I am going to consult this image with people of Madrid. Perhaps they can clarify where the statue is located.
Español: Lo siento, he estado estudiando la imagen. Los datos expuestos hasta ahora son verdad, pero no puedo dar una respuesta definitiva y no puedo expresar en inglés la complicación que el tema tiene. No soy capaz de decir lo que deseo en inglés, aunque lo intentaré.
Las imágenes de esculturas en lugares públicos se pueden fotografiar y publicar en España (véase la ley, artículo 35.2), pero es un museo al aire libre: no sé si el lugar de la estatua es público o privado, yo no sé si el lugar pertenece al municipio de Madrid o al museo.
Además, en este enlace del sitio del museo se puede pedir permiso para hacer reproducciones fotográficas del museo (el uso comercial, sin pagar, no se permite).
Sin embargo, viendo esta imagen de la estatua pienso que la estatua está en la calle, pero el museo la localiza en su interior (número 12 del mapa de este enlace)
Puesto que no puedo decidir, voy mañana a consultar esta imagen con gente de Madrid. Quizás puedan clarificar donde se localiza la estatua.

  • español: He recibido la respuesta de User:Anna sobre esta imagen. Piensa que es copyvio, pero ha decidido consultárselo a otro administrador (User:Dodo). Realmente debe de ser una imagen difícil de catalogar.

Bosnian COA[edit]

Hey, I see that you are an admin so I am reqyesting that you delete two images:

This is because I created the .svg file: Image:Coat of Arms of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1992-1998).svg

Thank you, Kseferovic 00:10, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

There, I completed what you asked. My only question is does this have to be talked over or can any admin delete any image? Since there are for several Bosnian flags that have not been deleted after better versions have been uploaded. Thanks, Kseferovic 00:18, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Commons deletion[edit]

I made a mistake in naming the files (i put image instead of media).

Best regards and thanks West Brom 4ever

Your Picture[edit]

So, I've just searched a bit arround. And I think it should be one of the following species:

  • Scarlet Skimmer (Crocothemis servilia)
  • Pin-tailed Pondhawk (Erythemis plebeja)
  • Roseate Skimmer (Orthemis ferruginea)

But I will look for mor details tomorrow. Just remind me in the irc ;-) good night --Morray 22:41, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
