Thanks for using my photos[edit]

Thanks for using my photos in Wikimedia Commons! I am a big fan of Wikipedia, and wikis in general. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 192.30.92.238 (talk • contribs) at 22:20, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

You're very welcome! -- Bryan (talk to me) 09:35, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for all your work![edit]

Here's some gelati to keep you super-cool while you tirelessly toil away. :)

Hm... you might need this Tablespoon6234.jpg too. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 09:32, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Re: Translation on your user page[edit]

Hey, and you're welcome. If you ever need anything translated to Portuguese, and it won't take a few months to do *wink*, just give me a call.--Saoshyant 10:48, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Use of photos on Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Hi Bryan

Thanks for your message (left on my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/unloveable/). Please feel free to use any of the other photos that have the Attribution-2.0 licence applied to them. There are many photos of toys in sets on my Flickr account.

Bryan

Thanks so much for your comment on my Flickr photo (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tompagenet/6531772/) - all my pictures are licensed to be CC-BY-SA, so please use as you see fit! Tompagenet 12:41, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

ESA images[edit]

Hi, sorry, I only saw your message re. the ESA images just now. Sorry if we have made a mistake. Could you let me know what the problem is? Cheers Lars (lars@eso.org) 134.171.27.138 13:19, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi, can you provide me the page where I made that comment? I can't remember it by heart. However, the general problem with ESA images is that they can only be used for non commercial purposes. This is not what Commons calls free. See Commons:Licensing for more information about free. -- Bryan (talk to me) 13:34, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Liberia rainbow[edit]

Bryan, glad you liked the rainbow from Liberia from my [1] Liberia set . Happy to contribute! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out.

You thank you for choosing a free license :) You may want to look on Commons:Welcome if you want to upload pictures yourself to Commons. -- Bryan (talk to me) 13:36, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

re: Flickr images[edit]

Hi! Thank you for uploading images from Flickr. Please be sure that you either upload the original (the largest) version of the image, or that — in case you crop — you crop from the largest version available [2]. Also add the {{flickrreview}} tag to the image, so that it can be tagged for flickrreview. Thanks, -- Bryan (talk to me) 14:21, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Very impressive. Thank you for the largest image reminder; I'd forgotten I could do that. Anyway, I've been adding the category flickrreview, so I hope that would be good for now. Patstuart 14:52, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Rename of a image[edit]

'''LASSARI'''[edit]

We have the rights the use these photos of our artist Juan Carlos Salazar. His photographer, Mrs. Beverly Brosius has given us authorizations to use these pictures for any purpose as long as we give her credits for this. We are trying to improve the article about Juan Carlos Salazar by uploading relevant related to his musical career.

All his pictures have been used on his CD covers becaue of the graning of rights. We also hold the rights to Juan Carlos Salazar's CD's, so we can use the images of the CD covers any way we would want to. We even created his website (www.juancarlossalazar.com), and used the same images we are trying to upload to Wikipedia.

We would like for the page to look more professional and it is more complete. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Ana Briceno LASSARI The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.157.197.171 (talk • contribs) at 23:38, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi, and sorry for deleting the images. Please understand that we get very many images uploaded; mostly of users who don't know anything about copyrights, so it is very hard for us to distinguish between users who really possess the rights and who not.
I order to prevent such mess in the future, please send an e-mail to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org, stating that you have all the rights on the covers and want to release them under a free license. You will then receive an OTRS ticket number. If you add the reference to that ticket number to the image description page, people know that formal permission has been received.
Yours sincerely,
-- Bryan (talk to me) 09:21, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:Styria content company logo small.gif Hi Bryan, I have forewarded a permission-mail from the copyright-owner, the w:de:Styria_Medien_AG to permissions@wikimedia.org on 2007-01-24. I can also foreward the permission-mail to you. Greetings from Austria, -- Kardel523 10:19, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

{{delete}}[edit]

Hi, could you please use a sandbox to make big changes to heavily used templates, and then later merge the changes? Because what you are doing now is greatly increasing the m:job queue, see Special:Statistics. Thanks, -- Bryan (talk to me) 15:32, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Ooh, shit, sorry, I didn't realise. How much did I increase it by? I was just following WP:BOLD, and I saw that other people had been editing it in the same way I was, and I assumed I wasn't doing anything wrong. Does the new layout work well? That's my main concern. I was worried I'd broke the some code in its rendering, so I was very careful; hence all the minor edits. Could you (if you know what you're doing more than me) give it a look-over? Thanks, and sorry again - Jack (talk) 17:34, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
And, now that (for the first time in a while) I've looked over WP:BOLD, I've seen it saying the rule doesn't apply to templates! Whoops... - Jack (talk) 17:37, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

clingfish photo[edit]

I am happy for my picture to be used on Wikipedia. My father, who had some expertise in marine biology, told me that this was a Cornish Lumpsucker. They occur in this form in the far west of Cornwall (this one was in the bay just north of Cape Cornwall). It might help to say on the Wikipedia page that it is known locally as a lumpsucker, in case people who don't know it by any other name want to look it up. Regards, Andrew (Polandeze) 15:32, 28 January 2007

Done. -- Bryan (talk to me) 15:46, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Two bad pics[edit]

I added the following two pics of Thomas Jones and Muhsin Muhammad because although while I was skeptical about their copyright status the flickr user had listed them as creative commons, so I took him at his word. Wikipedia user Shadow Jester 07 informed me that the flickr user marks copyrighted images creative commons, so I'd like you to delete them. I think these are the only two I've made that error on but if you want to look over my photos I list all of them on my user page and a lot of them still need flickr review anyhow. Quadzilla99 05:15, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! Quadzilla99 02:50, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

POTY[edit]

Bryan - Thanks for your help on this. As you know, I'm still relatively new here and this is the first time I've attempted any heavy-duty multilingual stuff. I can't speak for Alvesgaspar but I for one would appreciate your keeping an eye on how things are going, just in case... One thing I don't understand is why the page Commons:Picture of the Year/2006 has this at the bottom:

[[fr:Commons:commons:Image de l'année/2006]] [[pt:Commons:commons:Imagem do Ano/2006]] [[zh:Commons:commons:每年图片/2006]]

What do those lines do? Are there some pages where I can read up on this? --MichaelMaggs 17:54, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, and for the Dutch translations. Would you be able to translate the main voting pages, please? --MichaelMaggs 19:12, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Flickr comments[edit]

Thanks for the comments. I already have an account here on the Commons as well (many of the same pics, but under a Public Domain license, which I prefer). Feel free to use what you wish, though. Pacific Coast Highway {talkcontribs} 20:22, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

1 question left...^^[edit]

Hi, I've got one question left xD

Display image on homepage I want to display Image:Schwan1 db.jpgt ( http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Schwan1_db.jpg) on my homepage. What must I attend? Please help me! =) Thanks! Jelena

Hi, you must:

  1. Attribute Dickbauch as the author
  2. Write that the image is licensed under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License
  3. Include a link to the GFDL, or preferably host your own version of the GFDL
  4. If you create derivative work (modify the image, etc.) you must license this work under the GFDL

You may also, but are not required, tell the author that your used his image [3]. -- Bryan 13:04, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

How can I attribute Dickbauch as the author? Should I just write under the pic "Photo made by Dickbauch"? Sorry, but my hp is just a few weeks old and I've never made that before... Please help me once more =P Jelena --84.167.119.117 13:53, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

You can just say "Photo made by Dickbauch licensed under the GFDL" and add a link to the GFDL. I see that this user has permanently left the project, so it is not very useful to leave him a message. -- Bryan (talk to me) 14:36, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much!! =) Bye...(:

Your request[edit]

I noticed you've uploaded Image:B-17 Love.jpg and I thought I should turn your attention to a common error.
Please give some thought to writing a good description of uploaded images. This ensures that they can be used in more than one way. It also helps those that review and improve categories do a better job, which also ensures that images will get used in novel and interesting ways. Thanks, and happy editing! -- Bryan (talk to me) 21:42, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Sheesh... adding the information after upload took one minute, what can I do? If I put the info in before the actual uploading, I get a lot of odd doubling and a less specific license, and have to change the whole thing anyway. If one minute to insert the description from en.wiki is too long, could you please specify exactly what you'd like me to do? Bishonen 21:55, 29 January 2007 (UTC).\

Machinist:[3][edit]

Could you do me favor and delete this photo? The original photographer was unhappy with the use of it when I informed of it's use on Wikipedia as he said it wasn't an accurate representation of a Machinist (even though he entitled the photo "Machinist at work") as the person was only representing a machinist at a rennaissance festival. Quadzilla99 11:20, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

You can see the discussion here,[4] if you care. Quadzilla99 11:21, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Please, the image in http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:As_Catedrais_Lugo_Galicia.jpg . I think the photo must be like I have made it in http://www.flickr.com/photos/ubu/42662259/

The extra light of the edited picture I don't like, and it is not correct. Sorry.

Thanks.

PLEASE DO NOT SUPPRRESS RoadmapNanoInfo2020.jpg, I'm the author[edit]

Bonjour, je suis l'auteur de l'image qui est contesté par le message de Discussion Utilisateur: RoadmapNanoInfo2020.jpg.

J'ai publié cette image en tant qu'auteur et avec l'autorisation de mon Editeur HERMES SCIENCE PUBLISHING Londres.

Please do not suppress Image:Réseau_objets.jpg, I'm the author[edit]

Dear Bryan , I'm the author of the picture you mentionned, please do not supprress it, and let me know the process I have to follow to authorize the picture to live thanks JB Waldner 11:58, 30 January 2007

POTY again[edit]

Hi Bryan. Not sure if you're around, but Commons:Picture of the Year/2006/final still needs to be put into Dutch. --MichaelMaggs 22:58, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Abandoning the POTY 2006 project[edit]

I’m abandoning the project. I don’t deserve, and can’t tolerate, to be treated like an intruder or a vandal. Have fun. Alvesgaspar 13:40, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

The Licence for Lospilaresdelacreación[edit]

http: espacioblog.com/forestman/post/2006/06/28/el-hubble-se-quedo-ciego

This is the web, and the autor says the image is free about the Hubble Legacy.

He said me that by e- mail. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cme (talk • contribs) at 22:47, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Image:Differential.png[edit]

Why did you delete Image:Differential.png? The log entry reads "Screenshot from the 'Grapher' app by apple", however, the picture shows only a mathematical graph. The application is only used as a tool to create the picture. In my experience, copyright of such pictures rests solely with the creator.

I'd prefer it if you could answer at w:en:User talk:Jitse Niesen as I don't log in here on commons very often. Groetjes, Jitse Niesen 06:36, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

I was responsible for the request for deletion of this image due to the copyvio, see my comments on en:Talk:Differential equation and en:User talk:Romansanders. I am going to attempt a new image, but im no graphic artist! User A1 07:59, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Hi, this is all a very difficult matter. One can argue that the image shows content, and thus is solely copyrighted by the person who had inputted the data. One can also argue that the creation of the screenshot involved no creativity, and that the copyrights thus fully rest by the creator of the program. This problem could be solved by using an open source program to create the screenshot, such as en:gnuplot. I am however willing to temporarily undelete the image, so that you can upload it to the English wikipedia under the fair use terms. Nobody said that copyrights were easy Bryan 08:51, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

After reading User A1's comments, in which he says that the image is included as an example with the Grapher application, I agree that it is a copyright violation. I don't think fair use applies, so just leave it deleted (thanks for the offer though).

Bryan, could you clarify one more thing: did you delete the image because it was included as an example with the application, or would you argue that if I input data in a non-free application and have it generate an image which I then upload here, that image would also be unfree? Just answer here please. -- Jitse Niesen 13:11, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

I was in doubt, but I deleted it because it was a screenshot of a unfree application. When in doubt, and especially when a free equivalent could be created, I rather delete than keep it. -- Bryan (talk to me) 14:00, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Checking of votes[edit]

A number of voters have posted invalid diffs, and I've struck those out and warned them when I've spotted it. But I suspect there may be others who appear to be valid but don't actually have 100 edits. Do you know of any way in which we could automate the check for that? --MichaelMaggs 19:36, 3 February 2007 (UTC)--

Articles[edit]

Señor B.:

No entiendo porque si está en la lista de administradores en habla hispana, parece no entender el idioma y tampoco entiendo que si se entregan gratis tres artículos innovadores sobre ecología, uno estuvo tres meses y seapareció, otro apareció y en una semana desapareció y otro no apreció directamente.

Que no estén a su altura de entendimiento , reconozco que con 18 años, tiene mucho camino por recorrer, los artículos fueron publicados, pero no han sido pagados , así que estoy en libertad de donarlos a quien se me antoje.

"Indicios de cambio climático inverso", "Groenlandia e indicios de cambio climático inverso" y "La desaparición de los dinosaurios", son innovadores, técnicamente fundamentados y dan un punto de vista diferente a lo comunmente difundido.

Si Wikipedia commons, no los quiere, mejor, pues demuestra, el poco valor que a este medio generalmente se le dá.

Les dono tre artículos y me hacen "un bardo".

Hay una expresión que les viene bien.: " Que les garúe finito".

Saludos y gracias por nada de Manlio. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 200.122.46.12 (talk • contribs) at 13:50, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

POTY final[edit]

It's bad timing, I know, but I'm afraid I will be away on holiday and probably without internet access from this Saturday until a week later. That means I won't be around to finish off stage 1 and to help start the final. Sorry. I'll drop in from an internet cafe, if I can find one, but probably not for long. --MichaelMaggs 07:31, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Template:Unfree[edit]

What is the point of this template? How is it intended to be used? We already have a number of extremely similar templates. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 11:53, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Why did you delete my picture?[edit]

Hi, Bryan. I'm confused: I uploaded a photograph taken by me, and clearly stated that it was Public Domain (Qwentin2007.JPG). Since it is mine, I believe I have the power to do so. Now, how come my picture got deleted? Being mine, I can do whatever I want with it! Or am I wrong? Tomas.aveira Tomas.aveira 22:08, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Still, the missing photo[edit]

Ok, I got that newspaper article bit - it was there by mistake, as a matter of fact. I'm experiencing some trouble in citing my sources and I thought I would have to upload the clippings. I was going to delete it, anyway (although I still don't get the sources part). However, I repeat my question: what about the photo Qwentin2007.JPG? It's mine. I took it. And I want it to be in Wiki. Is there a problem with that? If so, please explain to me what should I do, since all these instructions provided are ambiguous and confuse for beginners such as myself.

BryanBot[edit]

Hi Bryan,

I have some questions concerning your bot BryanBot:

  • is it still being tested?
  • why does the bot not archive all closed discussions?
  • could you explain how the bot works exactly on the BryanBot page?

POTY 2006 - votes missing[edit]

I did not want to interfer with the routine voting verification but I have too. We have a complaint from user Tsui here about a missing vote. This was the result of a mistake, or an act of vandalism, by User:75.5.9.244 at 3 Feb, 21:42 and affected also the votes from users Amrum, Wing045 and Dannycas (and maybe others, I didn't verify). The incident was not corrected to the moment and affects the voting results. I'm sending this message also to Verdy p. Alvesgaspar 17:49, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

RFA?[edit]

Hi Bryan!

I ask you, because you know me a bit. Do you think I have chances to become admin here? My editcount. I'm kind of new but I speak a lot of languages and have only honourable intentions. :) I ask, because I would like to assist with the Category:Flickr_images_needing_human_review. I think there are some valuable images in it, that shouldn't be left unattended so long. Greetings! Enricopedia 16:08, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for your confidence in me! I don't think lack of experience about copyright questions is a big issue when its about flickr tags :), but of course I will follow your advice and try to get more involved into the help pages. I also got Commons_talk:Flickr images on my watchlist now and hope to see news about the trusted users decision soon. Greetings! Enricopedia 20:30, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
Well, once again thanx for your trust. I will use the my new privileges wisely, when I'm not drunk anymore ;). And after you answered my questions. Saludos! Enricopedia 04:12, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Machina sounds[edit]

Hi there. I uploaded File:Smashing Pumpkins - CR-01 - 01 - Slow Dawn.ogg, and you deleted it, even though it is for Free Distribution and is subject to free use. If I used the wrong licensing tag, or if there is some other snag, I would like to be made aware of it. Otherwise, as far as I am concerned, it is a valid upload. Reaper X 20:43, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Berezovsky[edit]

Hi Brian, regarding [Berezovsky-5.jpg], isn't this reference that i had already provided by the moment enough? According to the MosNews tag, images from this site may be used freely. Do I misunderstand something? What kind of information is needed? Colchicum 22:14, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Deleted Flickr file[edit]

Hi.. Sorry this is the zillionth "Why did you delete my photo" message, but I don't understand why you deleted it and like to learn something more. So: why did you delete the Image:Devin Townsend.jpg which I found on Flickr [here]? As far as I can tell it clearly has Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 license. Doesn't that mean I can freely use it here if I attribute the creator (which I did)? What am I missing here? Thanks! --Mighty Jay 10:09, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Michael Jordan statue[edit]

Could you do me a favor and please look over this photo?[7] User:Zirland deleted it previously, I assume because maybe it wasn't labeled correctly. It's definitely listed under a creative commons-attribution license. Thanks in advance. Quadzilla99 23:22, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

What about Category:Frank Gehry? Quadzilla99 18:59, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
You might as well delete this too:[8] Quadzilla99 23:16, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Deleted Milano images[edit]

I see you have deleted two old Milano pictures ( Filen Milano amfitheater in 1927.jpg er blevet fjernet, da den blev slettet fra Commons af Bryan. Why? The pictures (postcards) is 70 years old and as such they are not protected by copyrights. --Bobby 21:00, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

FlickrObamaGMU02.jpg[edit]

OK, I'm new at this. To eliminate guess work and be sure we get it right the next time, please tell me, will any of the licenses listed here under "own work, best practices" be sufficient to maintain the photo on the commons? I would of course ask the photo's creator to do the upload himself. In case he is not willing to authorize commercial use, do we still have a shot at uploading it at Wikipedia under the Flickr identified cc license? Thanks for your advice. --HailFire 10:06, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Wiki DYK?[edit]

Could you do me a favor? I started a couple of articles and submitted them for DYK? over on Wikipedia the pics I found haven't yet been checked to make sure they comply with the rules of creative commons. I was told they have to be checked if they are going to be put on the front page of Wikipedia with the DYK's so could you check them real quick and give them the approval. They're flickr pics and fine it should only take one minute:[9][10][11][12] Thanks in advance. Quadzilla99 09:28, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

I have re-loaded the same sound track again. I don't understand why it was erased since the other en:Habemus papam sound tracks use the same licence and it has never caused a problem. How could there be a copyright on a public anouncement with a standard sentence made in front of a two milliard people crowd? Who am I supposed to pay to have the right to use it? The Cardinal? The Pope? God himself? Švitrigaila 00:01, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

I think {{PD-ineligible}} is sufficient. However we do need a source where you have the recording from. -- Bryan (talk to me) 10:14, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

I can't remember with precision. I remeber only I found it on an Italian personnal web site one or two years ago. I took the sound track and I asked the site owner the permission to use it on Wikipedia. He gave me the permission with pleasure, but I didn't use it earlier because it's incomplete and I wanted to find the complete recording. And now I can't remember on what site it was...

Stephen Crow photo[edit]

Hello. You may not remember me as it was some days ago, but i had uploaded the photo of Stephen Crow (the game designer) that you deleted. Sorry it took me that long to check your message on my talk page. I had the photo from the Moby game site. I have to admit this photo can't figure in Wikicommons. I'm only on Wikipedia most of the time, and i wasn't well aware of Wikicommons license policy. I went through some reading meanwhile, so thanks.--Arikel 16:43, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Many thanks for the message, hopefully I'll be able to help. In the hope of avoiding mistakes - I have only "vetted" the obviously incorrect phone in the section of archived (pic of the year).
