Allie X Performs Live at the Phi Centre[edit]

Hello, could you explain to me why you deleted the image used on Allie X's page? I explicitly asked the person who released these to release it stating anyone may use the photos for any reason etc. Upon further inspection it appears their tumblr where this was was deleted, but you can see evidence of the exchange here: You can see Jessy posting links to the images and clearly stating they are happy to have their pic up on Wikipedia. Thank you for your time.

After a DN close[edit]

Hiya BrightRaven: Any chance that when you close DN's and suggest a change in license, as at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Macvey Napier by J P Slater.jpg that you update the file template to indicate the change? That way the image won't appear incorrectly licensed and people will be less likely to misunderstand in the future. As I was taking it off my watchlist, I'll fix it, but any possibility you could do this from now on? I really hate throwing the fish back in the ocean with the hook still stuck in them. Cheers!

Recent Deletions[edit]

Hey BrightRaven, I am extremely disappointed that you deleted some of my uploads. For the Diamondbacks logos, the logos were from a Sports logos site. The Snake logo was used more often from 2002 to present day. For the Mission Oak High School logos, the school gave me permission to keep their Wikipedia page up to date. Also I redesigned their school logo that is their asb and athletics logo and as an artist, I do not appreciate when someone deletes my work that I put weeks of hard labor on. So I ask you to undo all your deletions and I will assure you that I am not violating copyrights. I am just contributing like you to make Wikipedia the true online encyclopedia. Here are links that prove my uploads don't violate copyrights:

Traditional to reply to notes[edit]

Hi BrightRaven I see you have been busy on the project recently; but you have not replied to talk page notes. I think it would be lovely if you took a couple of minutes away from deletions and replied! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:10, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

File:"Alter Hafen-vor 1914".Bremerhaven. Ölgemälde.H. Kohnert.jpg has been marked as a possible copyright violation[edit]

Hi, BrigthRaven, unfortunately it was not possible to send you an e-mail, therefore I'll use this way for communication. Today you deleted the above named file "because of possible copyright violation". The only reason given was: " [[:c:de:Hans Kohnert|Hans_Kohnert]] died in 1967. ". I am well aware that normally fotos of pictures older than 70 years are allowed to be uploaded to wikimedia commons. However, this case is different. The person in question, Hans Kohnert, was my grandfather. He died in 1967, the original which was painted in the 1920th, is in family property. The foto of the picture was taken by myself. It has been used in the wikipedia-arcticle on "Hans Kohnert" by myself in order to illustrate that my grandfather was not only a well-known entrepreneur and sponsor but also a gifted paineter himself. Could you please explain why you deleted the file and/or if possible re-install the file? Kind regards, Dirk-Franz --Dirk-Franz (talk) 13:55, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

File:King Diamond Logo.png[edit]

Regarding your close of Commons:Deletion requests/File:King Diamond Logo.png, Commons:Licensing states that to be acceptable for Commons, the image must be in the public domain in at least the United States and in the source country of the work. So to my understanding it would not be enough that the logo may be considered PD in Denmark, it would have to be PD in the U.S. as well. I highly doubt it would fall in to PD in the U.S., based on the level of originality in it and prior cases of band logos I've seen deleted from Commons with similar levels of originality (for example and --IllaZilla (talk) 06:10, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Category:Buddhist temples in Ratchaburi Province[edit]

Hi BrightRaven,

I hope, you can still remember this? On 4 October 2013‎ you assigned Category:Buddhist temples in Ratchaburi Province to File:Wat.JPG. Do you have any more specific information about this file/building, e.g. name of the temple, location, etc.?

Salut. Est-ce que tu pourrais jeter un coup d'œil sur les fichiers de cette galerie qui ont été supprimés. La frontière est parfois assez mince et les interprétations divergentes selon les pays et les personnes, surtout quand il s'agit de Marine Le Pen, comme on peut encore s'en apercevoir ici et (j'indique également que je suis « en froid ») avec les deux protagonistes de cette affaire.

Fritz Boscovits[edit]

Hallo BrightRaven, warum hast Du die Bilder von Fritz Boscovits aus den Wiki Commons und aus seinem Artikel in der Wikipedia deutsch gelöscht? Die Bilder sind legal importiert worden, und die Familie Schmid, Erben des Malers Fritz Boscovits (1881-1965) in Meilen am Zürichsee hat die erforderlichen Formulare unterschrieben an die Administratoren der Wiki Commons eingereicht. Ich habe jetzt mit der Familie Schmid Kontakt aufgenommen, damit die Formulare mit den Unterschriften der beiden Enkelinnen von Fritz B. Dir nochmals zugeschickt werden, und dann bitten wir Dich, dass Du den Löschungsbefehl rückgängig machst und die Bilder wieder an ihren Platz einsetzest. Mit Gruss --MGBiblio (talk) 10:29, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Hallo BrightRaven, ich bin heute mit der Familie Schmid nochmals in Kontakt getreten. Die Familie hat im Oktober je ein Formular unterschrieben und per pdf eingereicht, bevor ich die Bilder, die mir die Familie zur Verfügung gestellt hat, in die WikiCommons und dann in den Wiki-Artikel "Fritz Boscovits" eingestellt habe. Ich verstehe nicht, dass man nicht kontrolliert oder bei mir rückfragt, bevor man Bilder löscht. Sobald ich von der Familie die pdf-Dokumente bekommen habe, werde ich sie an BrightRaven einsenden, damit die Bilder wieder eingestellt werden. Mit Gruss, --MGBiblio (talk) 13:00, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello, BrightRaven, here some citations of your and my discussion items, and I would ask you to restore now the pictures, deleted without taking notice from the permissions sent to, with the ticket number 2015092810007236 at 28 of September. At 4th of November you declared: Hello ... When the permission is reviewed, the files will be restored. Best regards, BrightRaven (Diskussion) 12:03, 4 November 2015 (UTC) ... Hello BrightRaven, here the information from the Schmid family: the young lady had contact about 28 of September with Daniel Baur c/o Permissions-German Wikipedia, and she sent the permission signed by her mother and her aunt (as pdf for each of the pictures) to the address:, with the ticket number 2015092810007236. Is it possible that you may find the permission with the help of this information? It would be very fine if you could then restore the pictures in the media commons. From there I could insert them again in the wiki article about Fritz Boscovits. Many thanks for your help to restore them. Sincerely yours, --MGBiblio (Diskussion) 19:59, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello BrightRaven, could you please inform me, if you agree with the restoration of the 7 pictures by Fritz Boscovits?

Suppression des illustrations Michel Stiévenart[edit]

Bonjour, j'ai constaté que les illustrations que j'avais téléchargés ont été suprimées. Je vous avoue avoir de grosses difficultés à comprendre les différentes liscences. Pouvez vous m'aider à choisir la bonne liscence. Je suis l'heritire de l'oeuvre de mon grand-père qui est fort vaste (dessins médailles gravures sculptures etc). Ce n'est pas un problème que de cèder mes droits sur quelques oeuvres pour mieux le représenter. Pouvez vous me dire quelle liscence je dois choisir pour que wikimédia m'autorise à les utiliser dans wikipédia.

Thank you[edit]

I see that you have removed an abundant template that I put in. Could the template be the reason for the mess I've made in the deletion list?

But anyway: Thank you for cleaning after me! 3s (talk) 10:40, 12 January 2016 (UTC)


Hi BrightRaven. The file Portrait of Cosmas Xenakis.png that you deleted some minutes ago citing as a reason a publication by Piasa, is a picture taken by myself of which I have full copyright, and was used by Piasa after contacting me. I would appreciate if you could instruct me how to restore it. Thanks.

Thanks for checking. I sent OTRS forms for both works, hope everything is OK now. Monachus~commonswiki ( talk) 13:02, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Je ne vous remercie pas[edit]

Je sais que vous avez lancé cette procédure de bonne foi comme moi-même, j'avais patiemment et vraiment très longuement, d'abord cherché puis trouvé ces photos à la suite de deux séjours à Paris, puis consulté sur la possibilité de les publier sur Commons. Ensuite il y a eu cette procédure où je me suis aperçu que les arguments avancés n'étaient pas les bons. A la suite de quoi j'ai entamé de nouveau des démarches que l'on ne m'a même pas laissé conclure alors qu'elles allaient l'être. Je vous ai même demandé si j'avais le temps. Je sais que vous m'avez dit que ce n'était pas vous qui décidiez. Voilà des dizaines d'heures de travail réduites à néant. Je sais que je peux finalement publier ces photos, les arguments et les preuves seront apportés. Ce n'est vraiment pas agréable de travailler comme cela, pas du tout. Non, je ne peux vous remercier, je pense que vous le comprendrez. Je sais que l'on ne peut pas supposer que les droits d'auteur ne seraient jamais réclamés. En tout cas, ce qui est sûr, c'est que le travail des contributeurs, lui, est franchement peu estimé. Tonval (talk) 21:29, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

Sir, These pics are published in a Japanese magazine or newspaper in 1955. Because these are captured in Japan Wrestling Alliance, Japan during a tournament. One of them against Rikidōzan and another against King Kong (Emile Czaja).

David Virgin, DCR[edit]

Hi there Patootik here. Please advise on how I can prove I own the copyright to the images David Virgin and Dublin City Rounders which you have makred for deletion. I had some images deleted recently, and rightly so. I uploaded them without fully understanding the terms, and that's why I didn't contest the decision to delete (some were mine, some were not, all we deleted because of the doubt). But in uploading these David Virgin and DCR pictures I was very careful to make sure these are pictures I took myself. The reason for the low quality and no EXIF is because I just copied them from Facebook rather than going through my archive to find them. And the reason for the professional looking images is because I'm a photography enthusiast, and I use Adobe Lightroom for my editing. These images are 100% my own works, and if my word is not enough please advise how I can prove it. Or if I have to remove these, how to make it clear that they are my own when uploading in future.

All advice appreciated. I'm not trying to be difficult, just want to represent these Wikipedia pages well with a photo each and do it according to the rules.

Thanks in advance.


Hello BrightRaven I looked through my HDD but was unable to locate those photos, I may not have the originals anymore, or they are on another HDD. I have however uploaded 2 new pictures that are straight from my HDD, one has been edited in Adobe Lightroom, the other is unedited. The edited David Virgin one was taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S4000, and the Dublin City Rounders picture was taken with my Sony DSC H-200. All the EXIF info should be intact, though the date stamp on the David Virgin picture is incorrect for some reason. Hopefully you will find these to be legitimate uploads to Wikimedia Commons. I will be sure to only upload images from the original source to avoid these issues in the future. Thanks for your help.

Kind regards.

Ibrahim Demir[edit]

Hello mr. BrightRaven this photograph as you referred for copyright violation i am not sure if its possible. Because the engraving work in the photo belongs to me as signed with my name and still in exhibition in istanbul graphic art museum imoga. If you are referring that i have to prove that this work is belong to me, i can send various confirmation including contacting with the museum for a solid confirmation aswell. I am a beginner with wikipedia editing. So i have to learn more about references and sources.

File:Lyon 3e. Montchat. Le Chat.jpg[edit]

Bonjour BrightRaven,
me voilà bien ennuyé ayant pensé que tout était OK mais me voilà confronté à un Bot (bien difficile de lui écrire !).
Concernant le fichier File:Lyon 3e. Montchat. Le Chat.jpg, en page de discussion figure l'autorisation de l'auteur de la photo. Il me semble que j'avais demandé son autorisation il y a plus d'un an (sa réponse a tardé !). Le versement sur Commons a eu lieu pratiquement à reception du mail. Il est joignable depuis Commons (lien fonctionnel dans la PDD du fichier).
Pouvez aider le Bot qui se pose des questions quant à la compatibité de la licence avec celles de Commons?

You kept this in an earlier discussion, but I'm pretty sure the uploader works for the company, as he has provided similar un-letterheaded, unsigned docs as license proof, linked directly to the company server, and in a directory that is not publicly accessible. Frankly, I think the user works for the company and wrote these himself. I'd like to re-open the discussion. MSJapan (talk) 22:41, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

What I'm saying is there were pictures that I deleted IN ORDER to post the new pictures; that you deleted. So we would like the old images added back (from the history) that we had ORIGINALLY, before I deleted them to update them. I don't know how to do that, and since this inconvenience occurred because you decided to delete the NEW pictures, can you please help restore those OLD images (which have been there for 6 months with NO ISSUES). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ljhpublishing (talk • contribs) 16:31, 07 July 2016 (UTC)

File:Out of heaven zx spectrum ulaplus palette.png[edit]

Hello, this file is my own work, it was made in a freeware editor, it is a fragment of a larger work (not the whole production), the production is freeware. The photo that was a base to this image was also taken by me. It was released in 2014. The download link is The image is a demonstration of the ULAplus graphic chip. Abrimaal (talk) 09:49, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

The educational purpose of this example screenshot is obvious. While the standard ULA chip is able to display 15 colors, the enhanced ULAplus can display 256 colors, but still in 8x8 px blocks. 8 bits per each color, 3 for red and green, 2 for blue. The color palette is arranged in 4 CLUTs and it is stored as a separate file. Because of the CLUTs, the number of colors displayed at once is limited to 64 indexed colors. This palette is not listed in the article List of color palettes yet. I have uploaded a new version of the image, without text. I could convert the example parrot image and add the palette view, however the deletion request discouraged me to work with this. So do what you want with this image, I don't see a big difference in educational values between a parrot and an apple. Regards, Abrimaal (talk) 17:57, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Student Newspaper Image - Please undelete[edit]

Please could you undelete the image from 'The Student Newspaper'. It was uploaded in accordance with WikiMedia guidelines. I am the copyright holder for this image and I can be contacted at or for verification. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Boredintheevening (talk • contribs) 12:55, 08 November 2016 (UTC)

Je n'utilise plus ARTWORK parce que l'utilisation est trop compliquée. De plus les informations affichées dans le Visualiseur de médias (qui s'ouvre automatiquement dans WIKIPEDIA ou pour les utilisateurs non connectés) ne sont pas suffisantes. C'est dommage ! Alors si vous voulez modifier les autres descriptions de mes fichiers pour plus de cohérence... Je me demande juste pourquoi je me complique la vie. Il me suffirait de téléverser en mettant le strict minimum d'info, à savoir le lieu de la prise de vue.

Hello BrightRaven,

I see you deleted a lot of my images. I think I can understand why. Do you know how I can place an external image (URL) into my own wiki?

Greetings Dharma-lotus-wiki (talk) 14:21, 27 January 2017 (UTC)



Hi BrightRaven. Can you put this user on your watchlist? They've uploaded 100+ out of scope personal images so far, and I just tagged another 10 for deletion. I ask you to keep a watch on them because you tagged a large number of these personal images for deletion a while ago. I've left him a note asking him to stop uploading these personal images. A block may be needed if he continues uploading his personal image collections. lNeverCry 21:26, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Your VFC installation method is deprecated[edit]

Hello BrightRaven, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well. A detailed explanation can be found here. Important: To prevent problems please remove the old VFC installation code from your common.js and instead enable the VFC gadget in your preferences. Thanks! --VFC devs (q) 16:23, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Map of Electorate of Mainz[edit]

Hello BrightRaven. I just noticed that your map of Mainz File:Électorat de Mayence.png also shows the Prince-Bishopric of Worms in green, as if it was part of Mainz. Of course, those were two distinct ecclesiastical principalities, although they have often been ruled concurrently by the same man. I therefore changed the description. --Lubiesque (talk) 18:56, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Commons Conference project[edit]


I'm writing you as one of the most active Commons users right now. Since a while now, the idea of a dedicated Commons conference has been floating around. But since the last Wikimania concrete steps have been taken to actually make it happen next year. If you're interested in participation or maybe willing to help organize the first ever Commons Conference, I invite you to check out the project page and leave your comments; or just show your support for the idea, by signing up.

suite à une question posé dans l'aide[edit]

Bonjour et je vous remercie de m'avoir répondu; pardon de vous déranger, je suis graphiste et photographe de métier. Je débute sur le wiki et j'avais entamé un travail de vectorisation. J'ai obtenu de l'aide de 6po FG de ses initiales sur la mise en ligne des fichiers qui au départ été très sympa, mais qui s'est vite pris au jeu d'être mon professeur, effaçant des choses sur ma page personnelle Commons et Wiki et m'envoyant des mises en garde sur ma façon de faire etc. Et maintenant il me menace d'avoir des procès ! ci-joint une copie du mail : est-ce normal d'être traité de la sorte sur Wikipédia ? surtout que je ne l'ai jamais sollicité par mail, c'est lui qui m'a écrit à partir du forum des nouveaux. j'ajoute également qu'il me "flic" m'écrivant par mail au sujet des messages que je laisse sur les pages d'autre wkipédien pour avoir de l'aide. Merci de m'avoir lu. Bonne soirée

De : censuré Envoyé : mercredi 23 mai 2018 20:31 À : 'emmanuel dissais' Objet : RE: Insigne du béret des Troupes de marines

Bonjour Emmanuel,

La donnée prioritaire n’est jamais : ce qui est fait par ailleurs mais que vous faites.

(ce n’est pas parce que votre voisin traverse en dehors des clous que vous y êtes autorisé...)

Donc la donnée posée est de savoir s’il y a une licence.

Cet insigne est dérivé – vous-même indiquez : « convention graphique internationale » - d’un logotype, donc il répond à la licence du logotype.

Si la licence du logotype a été cédée au créateur de l’insigne, il s’agit de la licence du dessin de l’insigne attachée par le créateur qui s’applique.

Comme vous ne pouvez probablement pas référencer l’histoire de ces licences mieux faire comme si...

Croyez-moi partez sur le logo

Le fait de son utilisation dans plusieurs pays n’a pas de valeur : en effet Wikimedia Commons est sous juridiction nord-américaine

Commons stipule pour les dessins simples « Il est souvent très difficile de déterminer si un dessin est protégé par des droits d'auteur ou non, et les images de ce genre sont souvent proposées à la suppression, avec des issues variables. Voir Commons:Threshold of originality et/ou “Seuil d'originalité” (sur Wikipédia) pour quelques conseils. »

En un mot, beaucoup de travail peut être réduit à néant par une suppression (c’est-à-dire disparition du fichier)

Pour les dessins qui ne sont pas simples (votre ancre ne l’est pas) la suppression se fait sans débat sur Commons (procédure de « Suppression rapide »)

Mais attention même les logos simples comme celui de Sony sont frappé de Copyright...

Le code de propriété intellectuel français est un peu plus large.

· Soit le copyright n’existe pas

· Soit le copyright est tombé

Tout est permis à condition d’en apporter la preuve

· Il existe un copyright, et quel qu’il soit, La vectorisation et l’emploi sur WP en français est possible mais uniquement dans la page dédiée

Si vous souhaitez « aller au feu » ayez des arguments hyper-solides en sachant que cela est assez proche d’un procès :

Il en est que l’on gagne sans savoir pourquoi et il en est que l’on perd sans savoir pourquoi...


F --Picte (talk) 19:12, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour BrightRaven

Avant tout merci d’avoir pris le temps de me répondre sur ma page et je donne une suite sur celle ci que vous pourrez supprimer après l'avoir lu.

Ce n’est pas tant le problème de la licence de cette ancre de marine que je soulève puisque ça ne m'a pris que deux heures de dessiné, le problème à un fond plus large puisqu’il s’agit de l'accueil nouveau. Je fais un retour sur expérience et Il y a un vrai problème dans ce domaine.

C’est une excellente chose que des volontaires sacrifient du temps pour aider à comprendre le wiki code, la navigation on a toujours besoin de quelqu’un pour mettre un pied à l’étrier. Et je les en remercie, mais car il y a un mais …

Je pense que les admis devraient créer une charte de bonne conduite en plusieurs points qui serviront de référentielle à ceux qui souhaitent aider les nouveaux. Comme par exemple :

  • Ne pas envoyer de mail si le demandeur n’en a pas fait la demande express et qu’il a posé la question dans un groupe de discussion.
  • Proposer des modifications s’il y a lieu sur la page de présentation utilisateur, plutôt que de le faire sans prévenir, c’est ce qui m’est arrivé et qui est blessant. La page utilisateur sert aussi à apprendre au même titre que le brouillon.
  • Ne pas oublier, que lui-même a débuté un jour.
  • Qu’une formule élégante et polie soit mise en place lorsqu’un problème a été identifié, avec sujet verbe complément … (ex) j’ai identifié un certain nombre de points sur lequel nous pourrions échanger nos points de vue si vous le permettez.
  • Ne pas imposer, mais proposer (par exemple si le nouveau commet une erreur) il est possible de lui laisser un peu de temps qu’il l’efface de lui-même. Ensuite avisé en fonction
  • Dédramatiser la suppression éventuelle d’une image. À chaque fois je lis « mais votre image sera supprimée » comme si mon Dieu c’était l’infamie ultime ! j’ai envie de dire « et alors ? » nous ne sommes plus au temps de l’argentique, il n'y a pas mort d’homme !
  • Les licences, les explications sont trop succinctes même en lisant les articles d’aide, il n’y a pas d’exemple concret.
  • Donner au nouveau le bénéfice de l’acte de bonne foi
  • Ne pas profiter de son ancienneté pour prendre un ascendant injustifié, vous ne savez pas quelles sont les qualifications de votre interlocuteur.
  • Mettre fin au « cordialement » bien trop distant, pour un bénévole. Amicalement ou au plaisir de vous lire serait plus approprié.

bien entendu ce ne sont que des propositions de réfléxion

Pour ce qui est de cette ancre, il n’y a pas d’auteur connu elle existait déjà au XIX éme et même avant ! url en clair puisque le parseur ne peux l'interprété : comme je l’ai dit c’est une convention graphique et pas un logo déposable. Autant sur les « pucelles » Comprenez les enseignes de régiment il est évident qu’il y a un graphisme à proprement parlé déposable et protégé. Quant à me poser la question est-ce que ça va me refroidir de participer à Wikipédia, je pense que vous subodorez la réponse.

j'ajoute que les information ajouté par 6Po renvois vers un site non officiel de l'armée française et que la source ne correspond en rien avec celle que j'ai utilisé soit ma propre insigne puisque je suis un ancien marsoin moi-même.

Amicalement--Picte (talk) 17:18, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Tm et la sur-catégorisation[edit]

Salut !
Il y a quelques mois, j'avais essayé de supprimer ce que je considérais comme une sur-catégorisation en enlevant la catégorie "Caramulo" pour les fichiers également présents dans la sous-catégorie "Caramulo Motorfestival". Tm, apparemment spécialiste de la catégorisation polémique, avait quasiment tout annulé d'après des motifs que je qualifierais de discutables. Mais je n'avais pas donné suite, mes connexions à Commons ayant été des plus clairsemées à partir de cette époque.
Ayant un peu plus de temps, et faisant le tour de mes anciennes interventions, j'ai vu que tu avais également réagi à cette sur-catégorisation (ici et , plus tous les autres fichiers semblables, trop nombreux pour être listés un à un), mais que le sieur Tm était là aussi revenu à la charge pour tout remettre en place selon sa logique (ici et , pour ne reprendre que les deux fichiers pré-cités). À sa décharge, on peut lui reconnaître une certaine constance dans ladite logique Clin
Est-il logique de trouver ça un peu "lourdingue" de sa part, et si oui, y a-t-il quelque chose à faire face à ce genre de comportement ?

Henri(s) Uzureau, 2 maîtres verriers[edit]


J'ai trouvé des infos à propos de Commons:Deletion requests/File:Sainte Onenne recevant le baiser de la vierge.JPG.

Il y a eu en fait 2 peintres verriers nommés Henri Uzureau, le père (mort en 1939) et le fils (mort en 1976) - donc pas DP.

J'ai créé deux éléments wikidata pour y caler les infos qu'on peut trouver sur eux d:Q56247866 et d:Q56247868. Les deux sont enterrés à "La Bouteillerie" à Nantes, si quelqu'un là-bas peut y trouver leurs sépultures

J'espère que ça pourra être utile pour les prochains problèmes avec des photos de leurs vitraux (vu qu'il y a encore quelques photos de vitraux signés Uzureau à Curzon et Joué-sur-Erdre).

Reste à trouver comment différencier les oeuvres du père et celles du fils, et là, je suis totalement incompétente, malheureusement ;) --Hsarrazin (talk) 10:23, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

from Danielbaise "Avertissement de suppression de fichier multimédia"[edit]

Rebonjour, from Danielbaise "Avertissement de suppression de fichier multimédia".

Il semble que l'ensemble des travaux que je me suis permis de charger ne convient pas aux desiderata de wikipedia. Je ne trouve pas le moyen pratique de soustraire de manière simple l'ensemble chargé sur Wikipedia. Je demande donc l'aide d'un modérateur pour dynamiter mes chargements. Le texte d'introduction qui propose une collaboration de contenu informatif, d'images anciennes, de schémas explicatifs, de photos parfois historiques sont refusées?

J'abandonne donc ma collaboration dans wikipedia, décidement trop sophistiqué pour un collaborateur ambda comme moi.

I would like to add, BrightRaven erroneously requested deletion of one of my images, "Spirit of Forgiveness" by Carolyn Mazloomi. The quilt was given to me by Mazloomi, it is in my personal collection, I photographed it and own the photo, I have Carolyn's permission to use the photo freely, and it belongs on her page. It would be great if other contributors such as BrightRaven could stop going around making requests without more information. The request and the deletion were incorrect, and now I have to figure out how to reverse BrightRaven's error. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Billvolckening (talk • contribs) 18:45, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

File:Bottazzi paris la defense public art.jpg[edit]

The licensing on File:Bottazzi paris la defense public art.jpg appears to be a mess. I believe you are by far the most active person on Commons of the many who have been involved with this image. Is there any chance you could take on sorting this out? Thanks in advance. - Jmabel ! talk 02:01, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

✓ Done. Since the licences are inside {{Art Photo}}, I think that it is not necessary to have other licences below. {{PD-Art}} was irrelevant in this case (this is not a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art).
