File:BarbaraRobertsSpeaking.jpg[edit]

I was invited to its deletion review and I am "forwarding" the invitation to you, as you were part of the file transfer chain and have much experience with image licensing. As I understand, the uploader is inactive, and thus we'll have to decide whether to trust his word on the license. Regards. Materialscientist (talk) 06:24, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks very much for the notification. -- Cirt (talk) 16:23, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Please stop dumping any free image from [1] onto Commons. Unless you can demonstrate that these images are useful for some purpose, you are abusing Commons. John Vandenberg (chat) 01:20, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

I've gotta respectfully disagree with your opinion here, the images are useful for multiple purposes. -- Cirt (talk) 04:52, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
Demonstrate that. John Vandenberg (chat) 07:26, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
I've added some other categories to them. :) They're part of a larger category, photographers and artists expressing their artistic license and freedom of expression on an interesting topic. It's useful to compile free use images on topics in this manner. -- Cirt (talk) 07:28, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
You have only demonstrated that you can categorise them. You haven't demonstrated that these images are useful, beyond increasing the use of the term "donkey punch" on Commons. John Vandenberg (chat) 07:34, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, it's difficult to do so, when you've removed the category from them. I've tried to assemble them together, in order to actually demonstrate their usefulness, but then when that category is removed, that hampers that attempt. -- Cirt (talk) 07:36, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh? you want to debate their appropriateness in category:donkey punch? I thought my edit summaries where adequate explanations of why your categorisation was not useful, and even inappropriate. Apparently you disagree, so I will explain myself in more detail over at category talk:donkey punch.
In the meantime, perhaps you could try to use one of these images on a content page somewhere on a Wikimedia project? John Vandenberg (chat) 07:41, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I disagree about the removal of the categories. Thanks very much for engaging in discussion at the category talk page, I really appreciate that! As for the images, the category itself is linked on multiple sister project pages. :) Viewers can peruse the images, and go back and forth between content on the sister projects. -- Cirt (talk) 07:43, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

File:Drinks Commie Bastard and Donkey Punch by uberculture.jpg description[edit]

Hello Cirt, I noticed that you copied the description on Flickr to Wikimedia Commons file description page. While the file is under the CC-BY license, the author did not release the text of the description under the same license. Without permission from the Flickr uploader, the exact description shouldn't be used. Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 03:35, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh really, I'd never heard of that before, can you link me to where it's stated that all the info isn't included under the license specified by the Flickr user? -- Cirt (talk) 03:59, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
This sounds very startling to me as well. I've never heard anything like that; where is that policy? I've been under the impression that the titles and captions should usually be copied with the photos -- indeed the Flickr to Commons bots do exactly that automatically. I've been active on Flickr for years, and this is the first time I've ever heard it suggested that the caption might be under a different license than the photo! Flickr has no option for selecting different licenses for the text and the photo that I am aware of. Where are you getting this allegation from? Astonished, -- Infrogmation (talk) 04:31, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
I was under the impression that copying the exact description used on Flickr could potentially be en:Wikipedia:Plagiarism. If I am in error, I apologize. Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 18:11, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
Shrug, I was always under the impression that the text description was covered under the exact same license as the image. -- Cirt (talk) 18:14, 14 February 2012 (UTC)


Voting, deciding .. what next[edit]

Hello Cirt, in e. g. this DB both you have voted and decided as admin. I just wonder since when an admin is allowed to vote and decide (in this case, the outcome fits, but it could be also the other way around). --Yikrazuul (talk) 19:54, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Only in limited circumstances, in this case:
  1. I was the uploader as well.
  2. The outcome was unanimous.
  3. It would have qualified as speedy-delete anyways, as self-requested-deletion-by-uploader.

Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 19:56, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Category:Videos of ejaculation by year[edit]

Why? It's not as if ejaculation changes... -mattbuck (Talk) 03:39, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Video quality changes. Art changes. Cultural norms change. Lighting changes. Technology of cameras change. It's quite useful. :) -- Cirt (talk) 03:40, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
No, it's really not. Video quality fine, but that's no excuse for segregating by year, do it by quality instead. But for crying out loud, there were only 40 of the things, what you've done has just made it a lot harder to compare two videos or find a suitable one. -mattbuck (Talk) 04:46, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
It's really standard categorization practice. I modeled it after another pre-existing and accepted category. If you want to compare two videos, please, create an additional categorization, for quality, in addition to this. :) -- Cirt (talk) 04:48, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Moving of category Commons Featured pictures of User Paolo Costa[edit]

Hi, I just found out you moved (without warning me), my page of featured pictures on Commons and incorrectly merged the files with my featured pictures of Wikipedia, two completely different things. My Wikipedia pictures include pictures featured in wikipedia around the world in different laguages. Is it stated anywhere that I can not have two different categories for my FP's? I need a different one for my commons featured pictures, which get more recognition. Now my Userpage commons FP counter cannot count any of my FP's.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Commons_Featured_pictures_of_User:Paolo_Costa_Baldi

Please return my category as it was, and if it is not possible to have two different categories of FPs (one for Wikipedias and one for Commons), I think you should warn people before deleting and moving files of personal pages. Isn't it fair? If you had told me so, I would have given you permission to delete category Wikipedia featured pictures by me, and keep the ones from Commons, which are more important, not Viceversa as you did. Anyways, now I have a big chaos among my featured pictures categories. Please revert your changes in every file to my Commons Featured pictures by Paolo Costa category. Thank you very much, I'm open to discussion. --Paolo Costa (talk) 20:06, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

It was Foroa (talk · contribs) that first tagged the page, and then deleted the category. Can you please talk to Foroa (talk · contribs) about this? Thank you, -- Cirt (talk) 21:45, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I saw that you useed a creator template in File:AlFranken2008.JPG. Creator templates are supposed to be used for authors only. I would emphatically agree that it would be better to have something similar for depicted people as well, but we should not use the current creator template for that, as it is used for mainteance tasks, such as analyzing the copyright status. --Zolo (talk) 11:12, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Respectfully disagree, it's quite informative and helpful and provides useful material and is eminently appropriate for both capacities. :) -- Cirt (talk) 18:34, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
The information it provides may be useful for person description as well but this is not the way it is currently used, and not the way crator template is documented. We should try to keep usage consistent. The template layout, with new line before and after the template is probably not ideal for these cases either. I would very much like to have something for non creators (see Template_talk:Creator/Archive_2#persondata.2C_non-creator_people) but we currently do not have that. A m:Wikidata project is currently under development, it may eventually be useful for that. --Zolo (talk) 08:59, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but it still is quite helpful for "about" info on those pages, and the complaint about the linebreak thingy is not really a big deal. -- Cirt (talk) 16:20, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Sandra Fluke[edit]

It isn't a disruption I am trying to make on the Fluke Imagine. However, since I uploaded the original image and contacted C-SPAN concerning use of the image, I feel some responsibly. It is clear that the copyright holder wanted the "free use" copyright tag off the image. It took over a week to do that. I am sorry, but under those circumstances I see no problem with bring this to someone's attention with a SD tag. It is and remains a copy right violation until properly released. Casprings (talk) 03:43, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Hi Cirt, please do me a favour and delete the main lead image in the Osho article. It has the same file name as the Commons image, and is a non-free image. Thanks. Joyson Prabhu Holla at me! 17:05, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah there appears to be unanimous consensus at Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard#File:Osho.jpg. -- Cirt (talk) 23:50, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

The deletion does suck. It did add to the article. I have nothing beyond getting it from CSPAN, which I tried. Just out of curiosity, why won't wiki allow the use of a file when a company simple says you can use it with permission?

Category:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day[edit]

I'd like to ask the point of the majority of the files listed in this category. They are too low of a quality for us to keep them here. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 00:35, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

  1. Commons:Deletion requests/File:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day - Depiction of The "Prophet" Muhammad by Napalm filled tires.jpg
  2. Commons:Deletion requests/File:Depiction of The "Prophet" Muhammad by Napalm filled tires.jpg
  3. Commons:Deletion requests/File:Depiction of The "Prophet" Muhammad by Napalm filled tires.jpg (2nd nomination)

I refer to above for some related listed discussions about this matter. -- Cirt (talk) 01:54, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

There's probably also relevant discussions about it at w:Talk:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. -- Cirt (talk) 01:56, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Notice how I am not nominating files for deletion and instead talking. I am ware of such nominations but I do not see what these files add to commons. I would prefer keeping more artistic ones in the category and axing the ones that are insignificant such as File:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day - Mohammed by Jeff Walenta.jpg. It seems like the files are associated with a contest of some sort. I think we should try to be more-selective. First of all, how do we know these files were even participants in the actual competition? Do you know how many participants the actual competition had? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 02:41, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I very much appreciate your taking this step to politely and kindly discuss this issue with me here, thanks very much! I think they all were participants in the contest, I really do suggest you read archived discussions at w:Talk:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. There's probably already lots of similar discussion there. Let me know what you find from those archived discussions? :) -- Cirt (talk) 02:46, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
I do not even know what I am looking for. Is there a source for all the participants? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:51, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Well, the specific links are here:

  1. w:Talk:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day
  2. w:Talk:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day/Archive 1
  3. w:Talk:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day/Archive 2
  4. w:Talk:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day/Archive 3

Hope that's more helpful, -- Cirt (talk) 16:50, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Please do not ask me to read all of the archives. If you have a specific point, link to that. Existence of commons content should not need a detailed explanation. Also, I still do not see how any of this Wikipedia talk page content is relevant to Commons. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 22:43, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Okay well it's there as a resource if you wish to read it at some point in the future. :) Basically, there's been a lot of discussion and support for using those images in various encyclopedic ways, on multiple different language projects, mainly in relation to the phenomenon of w:Everybody Draw Mohammed Day and explanations and depictions about that event. -- Cirt (talk) 13:23, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
OK, there is an art gallery by 5 year olds down the block. I do not think I should upload them to commons even if I get their parents permission to do so. Each image isn't important. Maybe the winner and note-worthy ones are. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 18:49, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Well clearly if you read the discussion from the links above, there are editors that respectfully disagree with you. Besides, as the images are currently in-use on multiple other projects, they are in scope and satisfy COM:SCOPE. -- Cirt (talk) 20:31, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
I can delink them fairly quickly since they are used locally in galleries only to meet COM:SCOPE. I have not been told any reason why these very poor quality images should remain on commons. I am not going to pay too much attention to wikipedia talk pages (that are full of trolling probably) to determine inclusion on commons. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 23:32, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Yes but if you actually were to pay attention to Wikipedia talk pages, you would obviously see that the purposes of use locally in various galleries (on multiple different language Wikipedias) is not to meet COM:SCOPE but for other encyclopedic usages. And if you were to try to go and delink arbitrary images due to your own personal dislike of certain images, I would highly recommend that you read prior archived talk page discussions, and initiate your own new talk page discussion before attempting to do so. -- Cirt (talk) 19:59, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Streisand Estate[edit]

Hi Cirt. The image appears to be of a very high quality at full resolution and the sunshine reflection puts additional weight to it. But the composition of the objects, that apparently are part of the estate, does not satisfy that quality. There might be a way to zoom in the main objects and to cut off those that are not important; the white house in the middle seems to be more important than the others. On the other hand, the two houses that are strewn and cropped badly on the left and the right ends do not seem to be of much importance. No doubt that the picture was taken from a very good camera by a person with good knowledge in photography, but I strongly believe that these changes could improve the composition in order to make it featured one. Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 09:58, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Category:Arabic architecture in Indonesia[edit]

Hello there, I wonder why you removed this category. There has been a trend in Indonesia since the 1980s to impose Arabic architecture on new mosques. You can see that there is a local Islamic architecture with indigenous features. Today only mosques built by the government retain the traditional three-roofed Indonesian style. Not all Muslim in Indonesia, especially the educated ones, are happy about this "arabisation" of Islam in Indonesia. This sensitivity has to be taken into account. This is why I created the category. By removing it, you are only vindicating those Muslim in Indonesia who want to "arabise" Islam in the country. Humboldt (talk) 09:51, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo says Howdy Ho and Happy Holidays.jpg[edit]

Cirt, don't images like File:Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo says Howdy Ho and Happy Holidays.jpg infringe on the copyright of whoever owns the rights to South Park? I know that whenever there is a Star Wars or Disney character here, it gets deleted - are South Park characters different for some reason? Delicious carbuncle (talk) 06:23, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi there, Delicious carbuncle (talk · contribs), and thank you for your interest in this subject matter!
  1. It's the copyright of the artist that made the artwork itself to have the idea to make the greeting card.
  2. Also, I don't think it's a close enough representation.
  3. Also, it can be seen as in a similar vein to cosplay. And upon review of Commons:COSTUME, seems to be fine usage.
  4. It would be inappropriate to go deleting everything in Category:Cosplay.
  5. Pictogram voting question.svg QuestionDelicious carbuncle (talk · contribs), I'm curious to hear how you came by these files in the first place, so soon after they were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons?

Thank you for your time, -- Cirt (talk) 14:06, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

I occasionally look through the recent uploads here which is how I spotted your uploads. I flag a few of the more obvious cases of copyright violation while leaving others to see how long it takes before they are detected and deleted. Concerning your uploads, I am concerned that an OTRS member and admin here would suggest that copyright of a card using a character from a television show belongs to the creator of the card as if that negates the copyrights of the character's creator. I think COM:FAN would apply here, don't you? Delicious carbuncle (talk) 15:01, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Cirt asked me to comment, so here I am (hi DC! More on you later...)
In my opinion, these images are probably derivative works of South Park, and thus certainly trademark if not copyright infringements. There are exceptions to this rule, we allow cosplay photos on the grounds of utilitarian items, but I don't think a Christmas card counts. Also, unless the Christmas card was made by you, it is a copyvio anyway. So, probably delete, but better send to DR as I'm not entirely sure on these issues. There's probably something in the casebook or something.
Anyway, DC, I flag a few of the more obvious cases of copyright violation while leaving others to see how long it takes before they are detected and deleted. Please just flag them yourself, it really doesn't take long. As my Students' Union keeps saying, be the change.
Toodles. -mattbuck (Talk) 15:16, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Matt, having someone flag copyright violations as they flood in is not the change I wish to see at Commons. Besides, it seems like I must be prepared for an argument every time I file a deletion request and it isn't a good use of my time. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 15:25, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Sent to DR (as your talkpage is still on my watchlist for some reason). Nothing to do with costumes; seems a pretty clear fan art case to me. Rd232 (talk) 15:33, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

  • ✓ Done, I've deleted those mentioned above, and retained the one that was clearly Cosplay, will only keep future uploads to those that are Cosplay. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 17:49, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

  • ✓ Done, I've deleted those mentioned above, and retained the one that was clearly Cosplay, will only keep future uploads to those that are Cosplay. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 17:49, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Advice on cosplay from Peter Weis[edit]

Note to self: Good advice on cosplay going forwards, from Peter Weis (talk · contribs), diff. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 15:25, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

While I understand to some degree[edit]

I see the blocks of Kuiper's IPs. However they are dynamic - the only effect will be to puzzle some future user who attempt to use the IP on Commons - the probability is that it is unlikely to be Kuiper. Actually tagging the Ip seems plain wrong. From experience on en wp - I have had warnings that my IP has vandalised en wp - it may well have but it wasn't me - my IP is equally dynamic. --Herby talk thyme 10:53, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

plus for info thanks --Herby talk thyme 11:03, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Respectfully disagree, but I guess I'll respond there. -- Cirt (talk) 15:51, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
I've made some comments at diff and diff, and diff. -- Cirt (talk) 16:09, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

User:90.184.205.91 used by PK?[edit]

Why do you think Mr. Kuiper used this IP? Just because it commented on a DR, Mr. Kuiper started? And why the hell did you remove all comments of this user? Thanks in advance. -- Rillke(q?) 18:11, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

That's a sock IP used by the blocked sockmaster, yes. Where did I remove any comments from it? Please no need for harsh language, thanks. -- Cirt (talk) 20:59, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Please, why do you think it's a sock of him? -- Rillke(q?) 21:07, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Because the behavior and technical evidence is quite similar to other socks of the main blocked sockmaster that is performing block evasion. -- Cirt (talk) 21:09, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
The behaviour is totally different. When PK is signing he was used using /~~~~. The ISP is also different from other IPs. PK never used typo as edit summary, never nominated whole categories for deletion using VisualFileChange (he dislikes these tools for some reason), … and the wording was much less offensive. I don't think it's him. -- Rillke(q?) 21:32, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I've gone ahead and voluntarily reduced the block to a block length of one week time expiry for this particular IP, we can revisit it later after that if problematic behavior occurs again. Hopefully this is satisfactory to you. :) Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 21:35, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I have to disappoint you but this still did not answer my question and I am not out for satisfaction. Please prove that the behavior and technical evidence is quite similar and now I have a new question: Which problematic behavior of User:90.184.205.91 are you referring to (diff links please)? Thank you. -- Rillke(q?) 21:43, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
✓ Done, I've gone ahead and voluntarily unblocked this one. I'll admit some of your above evidence is interesting. We can always revisit later if problematic behavior pops up, in the future. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 21:45, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Question[edit]

I was looking through your log of blocks done to see what experience you had doing these range blocks. Several caught my eye (well there weren't many in fact):

  • 16/1/12: 76.208.0.0/18 blocked for 1 year - "Abusing multiple accounts"
  • 19/2/12: 70.224.32.0/20 blocked for 3 years - something to do with User:Dantherocker1, who has no contributions, "Abusing multiple accounts"
  • 17/3/12: 67.236.128.0/17 blocked for 1 year - "Abusing multiple accounts"
  • 12/4/12: 216.66.128.0/18 blocked for 1 year - "cross wiki vandalism"

It's not obvious what these are about - would you mind explaining? Rd232 (talk) 02:37, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

I'm not certain I recall each of them, but most likely it's correlated to the checkuser mailing list of cross wiki spammers and the like. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 05:22, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
