Thanks for uploading File:Baby owl 2.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

BadJPEG[edit]

Hi DannyH (WMF). Please do not upload screenshots as JPEG. See Template:BadJPEG for more information. --Leyo 10:31, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

Leyo, thanks for the tip. I didn't know about that guideline. I'll upload in PNG from now on. Thank you! -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 17:58, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. It might even be a good idea to re-upload the important existing ones as PNG. --Leyo 19:33, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I'll see what I can do. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 19:54, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear DannyH (WMF),

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2016) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.

Thanks,

Special:EnableStructuredDiscussions still working?[edit]

Hi DannyH. I didn't wanted to test further but it seems the kill switch isn't working as expected? Special:EnableStructuredDiscussions is still up. I didn't want to test further and try to create or enable Flow on a page to avoid issues. Can you verify that? Also, Flow still appears on Special:Version. Is that intended? Best regards and thanks for your help. —MarcoAurelio 11:57, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Marco: The kill switch deactivates that special page. When I just tested it, it gave me an error message: "An error occurred. The error message received was: safeAllowCreation failed to allow the import destination, with the following error: User does not have the "CreateStructured Discussions boards in any location" permission." So that special page still exists, but it doesn't do anything and nobody can use it.
We decided to remove Flow from Commons by deleting the pages, replacing them with wikitext archives, and using the kill switch config change to stop anyone from creating any new Flow boards or posts, regardless of user rights. Flow's not being used here anymore.
We didn't uninstall the extension, because it would create problems in the logs that throw fatal errors every time someone clicks on a link in someone's contributions or other log pages. It's possible to fix that, but it's a lot of time and work -- the uninstallation at English WP was a huge pain. I know that people here want it uninstalled, but it would be a lot of work for no tangible difference. That special page exists, and the extension is still listed in Special:Version, but it doesn't do anything, and nobody can use it. Does that make sense? -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 16:56, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Danny, thanks for your reply. Since I have the 'flow-create-board' right in my global group I though asking before doing anything I could regret. Thanks so far for your work and for the explanations. I can understand what and why you did not totally removed Flow from commons totally so you'll get no qualms from me here now that I know the background. I think, however, without commenting on the future development of Flow/SD, that maybe MediaWiki should better handle extension uninstalls (this and all others) so we don't need to force wikis to keep a software that for any reason shouldn't be there anymore. Thanks too for your patience and courtesy on the VP trying to explain things. I can see it wasn't sometimes pleasant, and I'd like to apologize to you if I ever contributed to make that discussion incendiary or unconfortable. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 19:16, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Marco: Yeah, I can understand why you'd want to ask, before testing it and accidentally creating a new Flow board. :) I agree on the need for better planning on uninstalls. And thanks for the note about the VP discussions. I thought your comments were sensible and well-explained, no problems at all. There's a lot of mistrust, especially around Flow, and I totally understand it. I'm working on making the WMF/community relationship more productive, but to get there, we need to have these conversations, even if they get rough. I really appreciate your message. :) -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 20:41, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
