Photos Cadillac Ranch[edit]

Bonjour, Je viens de découvrir que vous avez supprimer 3 photos sur Cadillac Ranch (126, 127 et 128). Ces 3 photos sont des photos que j'ai prise lors d'un voyage sur la Route 66. Je ne comprends pas cette suppression... Pouvez-vous m'en dire plus ? Merci Lreich

Ian Thorpe[edit]

Can you delete this photo?:[1] The copyright holder doesn't own it. I basically just created a cropped verion of the photo that was already here (which has since been deleted). As I was relatively new at the time I didn't fill the other versions sections out on both images. Quadzilla99 18:03, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Incidentally the discussion on this is on the w:Ian Thorpe talk page on English Wikipedia. Quadzilla99 18:04, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
In case you're curious I created the cropped version in case anyone thought the one of him in a speedo might be too suggestive. Quadzilla99 18:06, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Hoten Theresa[edit]

hi bryan,

I need your help for uploading two pics from the en:WP : Image:Hotel theresa.jpg and Image:Harlem - Hotel Theresa.jpg. Is it right just to load them down on my computer and than upload 'em on commons? What about the history etc.? Bedankt --Ulz cup of coffee? 20:01, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

thx. Done. Except the higher resolution image of the second one. (Help?) --Ulz cup of coffee? 20:23, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
On the en:WP (here) is a link to Version in höherer Auflösung (1200 × 1600 Pixel, Dateigröße: 271 KB, MIME-Typ: image/jpeg), but I don't find this link on commons: Keine höhere Auflösung vorhanden.. So hires is only on en, the tool didn't upload it automatically. Do I have to do it myself? --Ulz cup of coffee? 21:09, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
thx once again, got it. I downloaded the wrong, the small, one. Now it's wright. And I will find the templates for speedy deletion on en:WP. Bedankt nog en keer. --Ulz cup of coffee? 21:23, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Albanian money[edit]

You have deleted the following pics without any reason. I will explain it in easy words because my english is bad and it seems you are quick in deleting but not in reading and thinking:

For the images Image:25-Lek-Albanien.jpg, Image:200Lek(1992).jpg, Image:1Lek.jpg, Image:100Lek.jpg I set an exact quotation (with web-link on the full text) of the albanian copyright law, which says that bills and coins do not fall under any copyright. What else a uploader can do? I think it can be awaited, that an administrator reads all text, which is related to a pic before deleting.

The second case is a liitle more complicated. There it would have been necessary not only to read but to think: If you had read, what was written at the pics of the bills, a normal thinking person could combine, that it will be the same fpr the actual coins. (Pic Image:Albania 2006 circulating coins.jpg)

For the last case (Image:Zog frang ar coin back.jpg, Image:Zog frang ar coin front.jpg) it would have been necessary some information about albanian law history (first copyright law after 1990). You do not know and you are not interested to ask, just deliting. This is stupid.

You just believed the groundless statement Albanian money is copyrighted you gave a stupid comment Regarding the money older than 70 years, what does Albanian law say about that? Anyway, deleted all recent money. I am just surprised and not amused. --Decius 20:30, 26 March 2007 (UTC)


Ik ben en nieuw gebruiker bij Ik heb veel foto's getrokken waar ik het portret recht op heb. Ik heb die foto's official ge registreerdeonder mijn naam met de US Copyright Office. Ik will die fotos op zeten. Dat zijn ongeveer 150 fotos. Kun je me helpen. Ik weet niet welk license te gebruiken, maar ik wil die niet op the public domein zetten. Ik ben bang dat ik geblokkeerd (This user has been blocked) worden voor de regels niet te volgen. Ik heb van users gehoord die zo ge blokkeerde zijn ge worden. As ik die foto's oplaadde kun jij die bekijken zonder en me niet blokkeren, en dat die foto's die niet good zijn te verwijderen, en helpen met en goed license en decryption in het Engels zeker en ook in het Nederlands as het passend.

Image:Hotel Hidalgo 2.jpg and others[edit]

Hi Bryan. You deleted Image:Hotel Hidalgo 2.jpg with a summary "copyvio". Are you sure it is a copyvio? Why do you think so? I do not see any reason not to believe the uploader was the photographer. Thanks. ~MDD4696 05:08, 27 March 2007 (UTC)


  • OK for all; I don't need this... Thanks (I don't speak english, sorry):
    • Estas imagens todas feitas por mim foram apenas para ilustrar a Wikipedia, e para tanto fiz os desenhos. Se as regras colocam-nas como "trabalho derivado" e, portanto, passíveis de apagamento, apenas tenho que concordar, sem com isto opor-me em nenhum momento. Agradeço a todos que se dedicaram à exaustiva análise dos meus posts, inclusive pela apreciação das caricaturas e desenhos feitos com base em fotografias - não se pode "inventar" um rosto, ao que me parece - e limitarei minha participação aqui apenas às imagens que forem antigas (domínio público) ou feitas por mim, com minha velha e pobre câmera. Espero, finalmente, que tenhas um tradutor que lhe possa verter estas minhas palavras... Cordialmente, André Koehne TALK TO ME 15:17, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

:Image:Arkas2 A rat in my soup (cover).jpg[edit]

Hi there. Thank for pointing out my erroneous syntax. In my email to Arkas I pointed out that whatever he sends will be published under " GNU ". The email is in Greek. I don't see much point in sending it to OTRS, unless you think it is necessary. You may undelete the image if you think it is OK or else let me know.--FocalPoint 21:21, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

I sent the email. Thank you for restoring the image. I must note that you are well informed (you pointed me to the correct email address, which I knew as a user of the Greek wikipedia - I should have thought of it first).--FocalPoint 19:44, 29 March 2007 (UTC)


Bryan - if you are online today and have a minute to exchange a mail or two can you leave a message on my talk page. Not about here but about something that relates to here! No worries if you can't - cheers --Herby talk thyme 07:25, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

sent --Herby talk thyme 08:49, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
Replied to your last one - should have included this [2]. That is (mostly) the basis of that block. If you want more info you know where I am! --Herby talk thyme 10:45, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Renamed account[edit]

My account has been renamed recently User:Vayaka => User:Vaya. Will it pose any problem concerning images I have already reviewed? Feel free to answer here :)--Vaya 08:31, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Not at all :) -- Bryan (talk to me) 08:45, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]

I'm now well past 200 edits; grateful if you could look again at my RfA now that this eligibility factor has been resolved. -- ChrisO 19:38, 30 March 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for voting in my RFA. I've been too busy at work do any Admin stuff yet, but will make a start soon. --MichaelMaggs 19:53, 30 March 2007 (UTC)


Appreciate the message Bryan (& the support) - it just wasn't going anywhere though! I understand that I am pretty unknown and that is a good reason for not voting for me now. But it does concern me that the tool is needed and those with it need to use it. If you warn someone a few times about copvios for example and block them a few times and then block them indefinitely what proportion do you reckon will try again! I shall be watching the CU log very carefully.

More importantly, hope the exams go real well - I'll catch you around I'm sure --Herby talk thyme 15:01, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Image importée à laquelle il faut appliquer une ROTATION[edit]

Bryan ! J'ai à nouveau besoin de tes conseils avisés et de ton expérience précieuse ! J'ai importé des photos depuis Flickr. Or, je m'aperçois que parfois, elles sont "de travers" ! C'est le cas pour moi et pour un autre "importateur", par exemple concernant Image:The_Sultans_Elephant-Rocket.jpg.
Existe-t-il un module automatique sous Commons ou Wikimedia permettant cette rotation de 90° ? Sinon, peux-tu le faire "à la main" ou m'indiquer comment procéder ? N'existe-t-il aucun moyen ... hormis le ré-import (toujours "long" sous un autre nom, à faire suivre d'une demande de "suppression rapide" ?

  • Je viens de découvrir l'existence du template Rotate. Donc, je l'ajoute aux images à basculer ... A défaut de mieux ... pour l'instant ! Si un administrateur réalise la rotation des images, leur commentaire éventuel est-il parfaitement conservé ? - Merci beaucoup ! - Amicalement - Marc ROUSSEL - Markus3 15:27, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
Parfait ! Merci beaucoup ! Bon dimanche ! - Amicalement - Marc ROUSSEL - Markus3 05:08, 1 April 2007 (UTC)


I know it is a fave of yours <g> - User:Slash wrestling - just uploaded a nice piccy but I've got to go - hope you are still there if not I'm sure it will wait. --Herby talk thyme 15:26, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Image:Alex psv.jpg[edit]

Hi, you deleted this image, presumably because it was tagged as not having a source. Please look at the source again; I cropped it from that image, and it is valid. I'd appreciate it if you'd undelete the image. Cheers, Jacoplane

Thanks so much! Jacoplane 22:51, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Ohh, ik zie dat je zelfs Nederlands spreekt :) BOEREN!!! Jacoplane 22:57, 1 April 2007 (UTC)


Hello, Bryan,

The FlickreviewR bot reports a mismatch on Image:David_Singmaster_2006.jpg but I don't know how. All the versions I've found--the commons image, and the Flickr image (under both the URL I gave and the URL FlickreviewR reports) compare identical when I download them (with Firefox to MacOSX). While I'd like to get it fixed, of course, I'm more interested in being sure I'm doing the right thing to keep the bot happy so it doesn't need more human intervention. Is there some log of what sort of mismatch the bot found, or a way to see if the bot still finds a mismatch? I suppose the photographer could have temporarily changed the Flickr copy, but bugs abound. --Dan Hoey 20:38, 3 April 2007 (UTC)


Could you approve this pic of the Baseball Hall of Fame? I want to get it approved so we can use it in a template:[3] Quadzilla99 00:48, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


Can you please have a look at this and undelete it.--Thugchildz 04:41, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


OK thanks for the information--Kimdime69 10:44, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Publishing an image from wikimedia[edit]


The picture is the main one on the Diamantina, Minas Gerais page (people on street with colourful houses and hillside behind). It states in the licensing section:

Public domain I, the author of this work, hereby release it into the public domain. This applies worldwide.

In case this is not legally possible: I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.

Many thanks for your help with this. tommy t

Sock blocks[edit]

In practice User:Mappase was contributing (in a very small way) sometime before the others came on the scene (looking at the contributions). As such the other might be socks of this user rather than any other options --Herby talk thyme 17:29, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

I guess my issue was who was the sock of who (the blocks should stay for sure) and looking at it it isn't that important. I see a couple more pics have been picked up and deleted. I am concerned that, as the underlying IPs have not been blocked, we may see other attempts to get these pics on Commons - worth keeping an eye - cheers --Herby talk thyme 07:20, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Flickr review on[edit]

Hey is it possible to have a flickr reviewer on en:wiki?--Thugchildz 19:10, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Re: Image:At the botanic gardens.jpg[edit]

Oops. I did the A's last so I was getting a little sloppy. I've removed the no source and added copyvio. Though there seems to be some complaints about my tagging decisions, the way I see it, it should be verified. I did get a taste of the admin world with this, and what a thankless whine-educing job it is. I have a whole new perspective for admins. Thanks for the kind words. MECUtalk 12:30, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Please take a look at these images[edit]

I think they are unfree.


In order to the image of the mucca steam locomotive I am not able to know who is the author; Image was published on a old review that I have not now. I scanned image many years ago, so i don't remember. Photo is very old, more than 110 years ago, no other date I know.--Anthostav 18:53, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Images catch[edit]

Pourquoi les utilisateurs angalis de wikipédia peuvent afficher des images copyrightés de la WWE et non nous les utilisateurs français ?

Persistent vandals[edit]

Hi Bryan, do you still remember this deletion request Commons:Deletion requests/Private scouting and school images (2007-04-04)? Well, the bad news is that the same person (based on the username and his/her photos) are keep coming. Here's the new one: Special:Contributions/Smpl05. I can put deletion requests again to their images and follow the usual procedures, but I guess there will be revert and revet again by other new sock users. The problem is that the person, whom I believe is coming from Indonesia, is using those images to vandalize id articles. For instance, this version of his/her under other username in id wikipedia. What do you think should I do? Shall I go for the usual deletion request procedure? Thanks. Indon 09:16, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for deleting those images. I thought that you were busy with other things so I took the normal deletion procedure. In future, I'll ask your favor to delete that kind of images. Indon 19:45, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Tagged for wrong licence[edit]

Your bot replaced Image:South and ohanlon.jpg with the original from Flickr, but as you can see the original is on it's side whereas the large sized image is correct.

Image Tagging Image:Alvarado-Cava.jpg[edit]

Hi Bryan, I read twice the message you sent me; the images i uploaded did have copyright information and, actually, they have NO copyright; a friend of mine took them while on vacations in the city, and i even asked him for permission to use them (although NO copyright is being held). He uploaded his pictures on flick and i chosed "the best" i could get. I don't understand why they have been erased :S, i would really appreciate if you can tell me why the images are considered as "not free", as you wrote in your message. So, —this is an example— if my sister takes pictures in Italy and upload them to flick i cannot use them in Commons?? EOZyo 18:12, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
