Re: Image:STS-51L_riadiace_stredisko.jpg[edit]

Hello! I noticed you left a note on my talk page about this image. I'm not actually the original uploader: it was tagged with the {{RemoveBorder}} tag, so I edited it to remove the border and re-uploaded it. I have no idea where the image came from, unfortunately, or I would certainly add the required information! Regards, Editor at Large 03:25, 27 December 2006 (UTC)


Hi! Thanks for creating this image. Although your contribution is very much appreciated, a circle is not copyrightable. I have thus tagged the image {{PD-ineligible}}. -- Bryan (talk to me) 15:05, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Done. :) --PoM 16:10, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

FlickreviewR bug?[edit]

Image:Sílvia_Pfeifer.jpg was marked as a failure. However, the URL that was left in the tag was completely different than the one noted as the source. The commons image is actually a crop (more of a detail really) of the flickr image so there is no good way for them to be matched, but it seemed odd that FlickreviewR could get a completely wrong URL to check against. The Flickr license on the correct URL looks correct though. Carl Lindberg 05:28, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

No problem, glad to know it will be fixed. Should I retag the above image with {{flickrreview}} so it will be reprocessed? Carl Lindberg 05:40, 29 December 2006 (UTC)


Uh! Thanks Bryan. Retagging all screenshots right now. --Nosferatu it 13:28, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Rhyssa persuasoria.jpg[edit]

I am positive about CC license - I have spoken personally with the author and he agreed to release it under CC. I have used many of his images before as well - if you want I can forward you all the emails, but it is all in Polish. Do not worry, all is fine and I know what I am doing (I am an admin on pl-wiki). In pl-wiki we have this "resource list" and this website, and as you can see this is listed as green (which is OK): [1]. The template says that "there is insufficient info" - my hobby horse is asking external sources for photos, so I can image more similar situations in the future. What info then you would need in order to avoid any confusion? (not so active at commons apart from uploading stuff) --Zureks 22:27, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

hey man! dunno what's the problem with my file...i've taken it from a website i've quoted!!!! dunno y u guys r saying the source is missing? even where i used it i've added a reference to the site!!! so let me know!..later

Quick question about free/unfree images[edit]

Bear with me, I am a new user :-) What happens with the images that are sent to Category:Possibly unfree Flickr images reviewed by FlickreviewR? That is, if an image was uploaded when the license was free, and later the Flickr user changes its license, are we still allowed to keep the image? Or, if the license was free, the bot checks and affirms it is free, but later the user changes the license, can we keep the image? Can the user withdraw the permission? Does the last point at Commons:Email templates#Declaration of consent for all enquiries apply here, at least for the images that have been reviewed at least once and found to be free? Sorry for the question, but I am still learning my way around here, and you were the first person I thought about asking :-) -- ReyBrujo 19:34, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Indeed, thank you very much. I did not know the licenses irrevocable, I will add that fact while talking with Flickr users about changing their licenses for us. -- ReyBrujo 20:20, 1 January 2007 (UTC)


As I explained in the comments I have downloaded the image from Flickr, it had cc 2.0 license which, as I understand, allows me to modify it. I modified it (I deleted a person from the picture) and left cc 2.0 tag. What did I do wrong? EvgenyGenkin 18:29, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

I added the URL to this picture. Does this help?EvgenyGenkin 18:36, 3 January 2007 (UTC)


Yes, I am the same person. Did I made a mistake? I think, I have to name the author of pictures with the real name? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Alfredjulius (talk • contribs) at 11:46, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

no personal attacks were made by me pal[edit]

re: MY image that was WRONGLY taken off by WIKI COMMONS?...ahem, there were NO PERSONAL ATTACKS made by me, rather it was the OTHER without a name....who did the ATTACKING.

Thank you for your attention, Bryan.

Bot incorrect in failing set of images for commons[edit]

Hi. Concerning the 12 images in the gallery images section on this page: Mexican general election 2006 controversies - I can see why the bot got it wrong. I copied the 12 gallery images on that page from wikipedia to the commons.

The author (Gisela Ishihara) of the 12 images is different from the person (erasmo perez) who uploaded the images to Flickr. On the image pages in the commons I noted the author's name who uploaded the images to wikipedia. I gave the wikipedia image link URL, and the permission that Gisela Ishihara gave there. The images also happen to be on Flickr so I also gave the Flickr link in order to cover all bases. If you go to the wikipedia image pages you can see that the author permission is clear. I put the wikipedia image URLs in the notes on all the commons image pages. For example; the source for this commons image: is noted as with this wiki code added during Gisela Ishihara's upload: {{self2|GFDL|cc-by-2.5}} --Timeshifter 06:02, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Discussion is continuing here:
On his Flickr photoset page for the above-mentioned photos erasmo perez writes that the author of the photos is Gisela Ishihara. Erasmo perez also uploaded other photosets of Gisela Ishihara. All were uploaded on different days in July 2006 soon after the photos were taken. So I assume erasmo perez has permission from Gisela Ishihara. See: --Timeshifter 16:32, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
I did as you suggested, Bryan, on the other talk page. Thanks again. --Timeshifter 20:41, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
I received an email from erasmo perez confirming the permission given by his wife, Gisela Ishihara, when she uploaded the photos to wikipedia. --Timeshifter 02:02, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
As you suggested, I forwarded it to, and I CCed the forwarded email to erasmo perez too, so that he knows the permission was passed on to wikimedia commons. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do. I hope I have the info and links correct on the photos. --Timeshifter 13:11, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Parma_nel_1700.jpg[edit]

Hey Bryan, sorry but i dont speack english! Vorrei sapere per quale motivo questa foto può essere cancellata. L'immagine appartiene ad un autore scomparso da più di 70 anni. Io ho solo fatto lo scanner e ridotto l'immagine con PhotoShop. Si tratta in effetti di una parte di un disegno molto più grande e complesso. A mio avviso essendo il Copyright del creatore scaduto e l'immagine da me modificata non esistono più i criteri di una violazione. Puoi chiarirmi la questione? Thank you and happy new year!--Lex2 18:51, 2 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi Bryan, could you please stop the bot uploads? See my bug entry on FlickreviewR's talk page. Thanks. --:Bdk: 01:09, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Re: Flickr images[edit]

Hi! As you are an admin, you might want to use a template like {{User:Kaveh/flickr}} when uploading images from flickr, instead of leaving it as {{flickrreview}}. -- Bryan (talk to me) 18:02, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

I just think that independent review is always good idea, even in case with admins :-)
And I missed extension for semi-automatic uploading Flickr images (discussed on Commons-l) :-(, which could do this job.

Bryan, i am newby in wikipedia. I understand te difference between copyrighted material and free material. Now, What is the way I may use a picture as the ones I wrote in the title of this comment? I mean, tha are copyrighted, but as they are already in use in several wikis, maybe I confused the picture upload site (which I thought was Commons). I think I got it: Spanish wiki can only use Commons and Commons do not use copyrighted material. Is this the case?

Yes, I released them for any use. But for free only for non-commercial use. If somebody tries to sell my pictures for profit as his own work, that's not ok with me.

No problem, they removed it first then an IP got involved. I'm getting the hang of the place - I've marked around 30+ pages as speedy in the last 24 hours! (does nothing for my edit count of course!)

Thanks alot Bryan. I'd spent probably a couple hours looking for policy details on this. I know it's probably logically said in the CC itself, but...

So. (depending on the lic?) I could just load the image like any other, & go through the process to make the page look similar to the one you just did, with attributes etc? Your answer here may well effect a lot of images someday...;~D Grye 16:27, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:Sinistra Liberale.jpg[edit]

I have deleted this logo, as there are surely some trademark or other mark restrictions on it, and thus not free enough for Commons; regardless its copyright status. -- Bryan (talk to me) 19:50, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

I have redeleted the logo, as logos that fall under some trademark restrictions are not allowed here. About the other images, did you photograph them yourself? Because the copyrights of a photograph are almost always copyrighted by the photographer. -- Bryan (talk to me) 21:06, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
Hi how is possible to add a logo here? What do you need? I don't photograph them but the photographer lets to us the use of the pics. Thank you very much. User:Claxroma 22:18, 18 January 2007 (CET)
You simply can't use a trademarked logo here. For the other pictures, are you sure the photographer has released all rights to it, including, but not limited to unlimited redistribution (e.g. making an unlimited number of copies), commercial use (e.g. selling) and the creation of derivative work (e.g. that anybody is allowed to use this image to create, for example, an advertisement)? -- Bryan (talk to me) 21:25, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
The logo has not trademark. It is not a party but a movement. The photos are free. In which way can I post this free logo? Thank you again. Claxroma 00:20, 19 January 2007 (CET)
I have moved this for community discussion: Commons_talk:Licensing#Logo_of_.22Sinistra_Liberale.22 -- Bryan (talk to me) 09:30, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Dominik Hasek[edit]

I noticed you reviewed my upload of Dominek Hasek.jpg. A couple of things: I uploaded a cropped version but forgot to name it correctly, also the old one spells his name wrong Dominek Hasek instead of Dominik Hasek, could you delete the old image and keep the new cropped image and move it to Dominik Hasek.jpg?

Old misspelled image:[5] please delete New Image: [Image:Airglasslg3.jpg] please move to Dominik Hasek.jpg

Deletion ? Image:10 days off logo.jpg[edit]

Hi, you gave me this message on my talk page for File:10 days off logo.jpg (and you probably deleted it too), but I got the explicit permission from the organisation ("10 days off") itself to use it. That should allow to put it here, not ? Please advise..the licensing texts I read so far are just too big or inadequate for me to spend more time on.
(Sigh, it's so difficult to get other than your own images on the wiki.. :-( )

Hi Bryan, I've uploaded avobe the image by replacing cc-by-sa-2.5. I found this image from a website and that website collected it from another website. I mentioned the link in its description page. I'm bit confused about thess types of image that are mostly found in website. Is that correct license for this image or is this image likely to be deleted. Thank you NAHID 14:37, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Pictures of Darwin[edit]

Hi Brian!

I just left some comments for [Deletion request] if I have to change copy rights please tell me. We just used the copy right version Wikipedia is offering. Due to the fact we will write articles for every NT destination I need to know which copy right version will be accepted. We would like to have a link to our site or at least be credited as owner.

what do you mean?[edit]

what do you mean by purging? i have tons of problems when uploading svg. sometimes they dont show on the mage page but do on galleries. other times the oposite.. what is wrong? -LadyofHats 14:30, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

  • But i can not add this action=purge when making a gallery by example or?. and it doesnt explain why sometimes they dont show in thumbnails at 200 px but do at 201px. is there a way to fix this? or to go arround it?-LadyofHats 14:59, 24 January 2007 (UTC)


I've taken it from the German wiki. The original size is the same. I don't know why has that 800px- appeared. Thanks for your advise Gangleri2001 15:05, 24 January 2007

I've already uploaded the right image at Image:Battle_of_Nagashino.jpg. Could you delete the images Image:800px-Schlacht.jpg and Image:Nagashino.jpg please? -- Gangleri2001 16:15, 24 Januay 2007
