Hello, Diannaa!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File tagging File:Pseaa figure1.jpeg

Please go ahead with the deletion of this file. I have redrawn the graph, and uploaded it as an svg file.--Dcirovic (talk) 14:41, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Star Air Service

re: File:Star Air Service LogoA.jpg - plz see earlier correspondence here & on RoyDickson UserTalk page Magog the Ogre (talk) 22:17, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

RE: File:Star_Air_Service_LogoA.jpg I have never mastered all the complexities of the "File Source" rqmnts. I set this up with the help of one of your more expert users. As far as I can see all reqd info has been entered. If you want to rqst any additional info, I will be glad to respond, but I can't seem to find any helpful instructions by wading thru all the complex terminology. It would be to bad to delete this as it is a historic item, but there seems to be an ongoing effort to delete rather than enhance! —Preceding unsigned comment added by RoyDickson (talk • contribs) 15:37, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry for any confusion. I just needed to know where you got the file! Right now it says "Jack Peck photo", but that really doesn't man anything to me. Can you elaborate on the page: did a friend take the photo and give it to you? Did you snap it yourself? Did you get it off the internet? That's all I'm looking for. Thanks for your time, and thanks for your patience in the whole issue. Magog the Ogre (talk) 04:08, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

MORE - 3/28/2011 - A person named JACK PECK took the photo about 80 years ago and gave the photo to LARS OPLAND of Wasilla, AK who collects Alaska Aviation memorabelia, photos, etc. LARS OPLAND has give me written permission to use the photo and to post it on Wikipedia. If you wish I can give you his email address. Let me know. Regards, Roy Dickson www.alaskabushpilot.org

OK great. Could you do me a favor and if it's in email form, follow the instructions at Template:Image permission and forward the email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org so that we have a record of the permission on file? Thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) 15:54, 28 March 2011 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by RoyDickson (talk • contribs) 15:21, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the information. What you need to do is get an OTRS ticket attached to the file using the instructions provided by Magog the Ogre. Thanks. --Diannaa (talk) 22:17, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Why?

Hi Diannaa.

I will write in my language, sorry.

Este logo que quieres borrar consiste sólo en formas geométricas simples y texto. Por favor, reconsidéralo--Inefable001 (talk) 23:44, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

La razón por la que es propuesto para borrado se debe a que está claramente marcado con un símbolo de copyright, y la Wikipedia en Inglés reclamaciones de la imagen es de autor. El asunto debe ser resuelto. --Diannaa (talk) 02:50, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I declined your speedy deletion request on grounds of a DR closed as keep a few months back. I have reopened the DR with your comment. Commons:Deletion requests/File:LogoSonair en.png -mattbuck (Talk) 01:43, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. I was unaware of the previous discussion. --Diannaa (talk) 02:47, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Delete

Hola Diannaa.

Fuiste tú quien mandó a eliminar la imagen en:File:Municipalities of the province of Santo Domingo.jpg?. Por qué no puede quedarse en Commons?--Inefable001 (talk) 03:10, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

No, yo no soy un administrador en la Wikimedia Commons, y no eliminar el archivo. Todavía hay una copia del archivo en la Wikipedia en Inglés. La razón del archivo fue propuesto para borrado era porque no había pruebas suficientes de la autorización de la editorial original en http://www.wikidominicana.edu.do. --Diannaa (talk) 03:58, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Entonces puede la imagen volver a Commons o no?
The image can then return to Commons or not?--Inefable001 (talk) 07:05, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
No, they will just delete it again unless you get the proper permissions in place. The image will probably get deleted from the English wikipedia soon too.

No, sólo lo eliminará de nuevo a menos que obtenga los permisos adecuados en el lugar. La imagen probablemente se elimina de la Wikipedia en Inglés demasiado pronto. -- Diannaa (talk) 13:52, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much, amig@--Inefable001 (talk) 05:39, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Licensing on File:Seneca Niagara Casino Hotel and Tower.jpg

Hi,

I see you changed the licensing on File:Seneca Niagara Casino Hotel and Tower.jpg to match Flickr. That is my Flickr account, and I am the copyright holder for the photo (took the pic myself). Flickr uses the 2.0 but I'm okay with releasing this same image under 3.0 to Commons. If this needs to be verified through OTRS, please let me know. Regards. -- Whpq (talk) 17:54, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. As long as you are aware and okay with it, that's perfect. --Diannaa (talk) 18:39, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Licensing on File:Final Destination Premiere.jpg

Yes, you can delete the image if you want. i understand it's url license expired and I have not found any replacement of the latter. Please notify me a day before you'll remove it. Thanks. --FDJoshua22 (talk) 08:54, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

It won't be me that deletes it, because I am not an administrator on this wiki. -- Diannaa (talk) 14:32, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Concering the file :Coenonympha pamphilus-3.jpg

No, I don't know where this file File:Coenonympha pamphilus-3.jpg comes from. The work that I do on Wikimedia is mostly editing (i.e. the removal of watermarks in pictures). I have found on the page on removal watermarks [1]. Obviously the bot has made a mistake citing me as the owner and uploader of the picture. I at least cannot remember uploading it to Wikimedia commons. Citypeek (talk) 16:41, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for looking into this for me; I appreciate it. -- Diannaa (talk) 17:18, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

User rights

Hi Diannaa. I'm glad to see you're active over here. I've added a few more rights to your acct in the interest of making sure you have the all the tools you need. Let me know if you have any interest in the patroller right. INeverCry 18:09, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

File:VK Krishna Menon.jpg

Hi, thanks for your prompt review of the above file. However, both of us forgot to check the metadata. It says that the "Date of data generation" is 1958 and not 1948 as was claimed in the en.wiki title. Therefore, perhaps you should delete the file from Commons and re-instate it on en.wiki. Sorry for causing this inconvenience. Regards, Lovy Singhal (talk) 08:20, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the information. I have restored the copy on en.wiki for fair use in one article, and nominated the copy here on the Commons for deletion. Regards, -- Diannaa (talk) 05:29, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Shubra el kheima.png

This file was originally uploaded to the English wikipedia under this license by the owner of the blog. I simply transferred it to the commons (it was already flagged for transfer). I hope I won't have to keep doing this every time I transfer something to commons. --عبد المؤمن (talk) 15:36, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Many images presently hosted on en.wiki have been flagged for transfer (literally hundreds of thousands of them) but the tagging is done by a bot. The person who actually does the transfer should be checking the status of the licenses and making sure they are valid before the transfer is done. Items that do not have vaild licenses need to be deleted, not transferred, so sorry. For this particular image, there's no evidence that the person who uploaded the image to en.wiki is the owner of the blog. There's no indication on the blog that the material has been released under license. The best way to ensure that such files are not deleted is for the original uploader, if they are the copyright holder, to get an OTRS ticket in place using the instructions at Commons:OTRS. -- Diannaa (talk) 19:35, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

HIM byMaurizio Cattelan in Warsaw Ghetto 2013.JPG

This photo has been taken by myself so i am only copyright holder. Mathiasrex (talk) 19:48, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

The photo is a picture of a painting done by Maurizio Cattelan, so there's two separate copyright issues here - copyright on the photograph and copyright on the painting. Maurizio Cattelan holds the copyright for the artwork, and has not released permission to us to display his artwork here. -- Diannaa (talk) 22:34, 10 January 2013 (UTC) Sorry these remarks are incorrect. The artwork is a statue displayed in a public place in Poland, which is okay for freedom of panorama, so I have removed the deletion tag. Sorry for the misunderstanding. -- Diannaa (talk) 23:00, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Patroller

Hi Dianna. I just wanted to let you know I switched your autopatrolled right to patroller. This means your edits are still autopatrolled, and that you can now mark others' edits as patrolled if needed. INeverCry 23:25, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I will read up about this to see how I can make use of this tool. Best, -- Diannaa (talk) 23:31, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

deletion - why and what to do etc.?

Hello ~

I have received the following message - and below it is the message I sent earlier to permissions-en@wikimedia.org

I am the photographer of an image of Allison Crowe, whom I serve as manager, and I posted the photo for which I control/hold all rights to Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons with the intention that it could be used freely by people.

For some reason or reasons I don't understand - my photo has been deleted.

Please help, thank you!

Adrian

Replying on your talk page. -- Diannaa (talk) 03:23, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello - I responded to the notice I saw earlier today immediately - and do not understand - why have you deleted the image summarily? If there is no redress of things for weeks, that suggests perhaps some time and consideration should be given matters before hasty deletions are made - eg. on the same day as a notice appears. Please, help, and do not further the complications. Thank you. I control rights to ALL images I upload - either as being original photographer or creator and/or through deals made with any photographers or creators to obtain such rights. I thought I had entered everything correctly when I first posted any/all images. If I have not, that is due to confusion - not illegality etc. - and I will tend things when notified of same. But, if things are deleted so hastily, that creates a situation such as exists in your description - an image that is entirely legitimate, has been deleted - and cannot be restored for weeks you say. This is not good. Thanks for your time and consideration. Adrian du Plessis management@allisoncrowe.com

If you upload images that are later found to have already been uploaded elsewhere on the internet, your uploads are impossible to differentiate from copyright violations, of which we get hundreds every day. As you might imagine, many people claim to have the rights to images that they don't actually own. So out of respect for the rights of copyright holders and in compliance with copyright law, any suspected copyright violations are immediately removed both here at the Commons and at en.wiki. I see that at least some of the images now have OTRS tickets in place. Please follow up with User:Alan, the OTRS team member who handled your email, regarding getting any files restored that have not yet been dealt with. Sorry you have been inconvenienced. -- Diannaa (talk) 19:44, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, Diannaa, for the fuller explanation. We come from different vantages to the same point. And, clearly, neither of us wants to see copyright violations. For someone such as yourself who is intimately familiar with the ways of Wikipedia, what is self-evident to you may not be so to one less acquainted, thus, your response here is most helpful. It can be something of a maze working through the various interconnected pages to ensure that a topic is addressed. Add to that such things as entering codes that one things are templates, but, then learning that the template is not entered. And so on. I do believe posts and content is all coming together - in mutual understanding. best' Rimbaud22ca (talk) 21:09, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Bigger version of File:Bobby Byrne.jpg!

Love it - thanks for making the update. The file probably came your way because I randomly chose to move it to Commons & now it's all bigger and better! Leaving a note cause it made me smile. Kind regards -- Deadstar (msg) 07:54, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes, that's how I spotted it. Lots of the Library of Congress images have a tiff file which is huge, so it can be downloaded and cleand up and converted to a jpg using this website. A lot of steps, but such an awesome result, and a great opportunity to use the word "embiggen"! -- Diannaa (talk) 19:28, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Confused about tagging

Hi Diannaa. I tagged File:Ireland-Capitals.PNG with {Cleanup image|14 old versions require deletion}. Another user has removed the tag with the edit summary sry, the guidelines do not allow this. He/she has left any tag on the image. What should I do in circumstances such as this? Is there another tag I can use? (I haven't been able to find one more suitable). To me it looks unprofessional to have 14 revisions still visible. Thanks in advance for the advice. SonofSetanta (talk) 12:09, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I don't know the answer to this question, as I am not an admin on this wiki. Perhaps the old versions are necessary for proper attribution? -- Diannaa (talk) 14:13, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for replying in any case. SonofSetanta (talk) 14:26, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

WikiLoves Monuments

I noticed your excellent new photos from Banff. I was just there myself a few weeks ago but didn't come away with many useable photos (for Wikipedia at least!). Your photographs are excellent quality and I encourage you to upload ones now through the end of September to Wiki Loves Monuments 2013. The top photos receive prize money! Last year's contest was the largest photo contest ever. Also, your answer on the last question thread about keeping old versions for proper attribution is correct. Royalbroil 18:13, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks Royalbroil for the positive feedback, and for the info about SonofSetanta's inquiry. I will definitely consider entering the contest. -- Diannaa (talk) 18:29, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

File:EL with pipe at piano.png

Hello Diannaa,

You wanted to know how it is that the creator of the article about Emanuel Leplin has the right to use this photo. The photo was taken 67, 68 or 69 years ago. The person who took the photo was probably in the U.S. Army in Europe in WWII. S/he gave it to Emanuel Leplin. S/he did not claim a copyright. The photo was in the possession of Anita Leplin after Emanuel's death. About twenty years ago, Anita gave it to her son Rocky. Rocky scanned the photo, smoothed out rough aspects if the image in Photoshop, and uploaded it to the pending Wikipedia article about Emanuel Leplin. Rocky doesn't claim that he took the photo, just that it belongs to him. If he owns the image, and no one contests or has ever contested that he owns the image, and thus there is no copyright infringement, how could it be a violation of copyright law for him to publish it?

Hello Mr Leplin. Common-law copyright in the United States protects unregistered works. Therefore the image is copyright, regardless of whether or not the photographer officially registered the item. Possession of a copy of the image does not mean that the copyright has been transferred. And the person in the photograph does not own the copyright, nor do his heirs. The person who took the photo (or their heirs) owns the copyright. For anonymous unpublished works, the copyright expires after 120 years. For images that have been published, the status depends on the date of publication and whether or not a copyright notice was attached at that time, and whether or not the copyright was ever renewed. Please see the Commons:Hirtle chart for more information on this topic. Proof of prior publication is required for an image to be available to us for fair use. Fair use images should not be on the Commons, but only on the local wiki, in this case the English Wikipedia. The deletion discussion for the copy on the Commons is at Commons:Deletion requests/File:EL with pipe at piano.png. You are welcome to post comments there if you like. For the copy on en.wiki, where you stated the image was from the family archives rather than your own work, the image is scheduled to be deleted on Wednesday, 25 September, as it lacks permission of the copyright holder. -- Diannaa (talk) 00:56, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

published in 1893. However, I can't spell the author, who is indicated under the image. Moreover, the book may be a french translation of a latin one: here and here recalled. Is it sufficient to mantein the picture? Thanks. --Harlock81 (talk) 11:18, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

I can't read it either; the writing gets too blurry at high zoom. It should be enough though; I will withdraw the deletion nomination. -- Diannaa (talk) 14:35, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Your nomination of File:Tahoe19882.png for deletion

Hi there, I normally work on the assumption that if a person claims to be the creator of an image in the license, and it is they who uploaded the image, then source may be assumed to be them. Many images on EN Wiki were uploaded without the standard template, and hence do not explicitly state source=self or source=username. This image comes into that category, so I transferred it from EN Wiki to Commons assuming it met commons guidelines : originally uploaded by by the creator and copyright owner. Unfortunately, the transfer process does not tidy this up, and leaves source on Commons empty. I normally get around to cleaning up this problem on Commons a little later. Conclusion : I think we can keept this image after cleanup. regards, rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 01:51, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

I disagree on this particular shot, as it looks like it was professionally taken, and is web resolution rather than the size one would see if the uploader took it with their own camera. It may have been copied from here. -- Diannaa (talk) 13:37, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Definitely stolen from that website ! It has to go. How did you find that website ? Rcbutcher (talk) 20:42, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
If you use Chrome, you can right-click on any image, and a wee menu will come up. Ask to "Search Google for this image". Find copy vios in an instant! If for some reason you are not using Chrome, add this to your common.js (on English Wikipedia):
//
// Googling (based on Commons:MediaWiki:Gadget-GoogleImages.js):
if (wgNamespaceNumber == 6) {
  var images = document.getElementById('file').getElementsByTagName('img');
  var imageurl = images[0].parentNode.href;
  mw.util.addPortletLink('p-cactions', 'https://www.google.com/searchbyimage?image_url=' + encodeURIComponent(imageurl), 'Google Images');
}
 
// 

On Commons, go to Preferences→Gadgets→GoogleImages tab: On File pages, adds a new tab to easily search for similar images on the Internet using Google Images. -- Diannaa (talk) 23:41, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

thanks for taking the time to educate me, this is awesome (to me anyway). Rcbutcher (talk) 06:39, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images

Hello, Diannaa!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

DLindsley (My talk page) 20:50, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the reminder. I will go back and add categories to them later. -- Diannaa (talk) 20:53, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
You are welcome. :) DLindsley (My talk page) 21:48, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Image Licensing

If you don't mind answering a quick question: I want to upload this image [2] to Commons; should I use Template:PD-1923 or Template:PD-scan? Also, the website claims it has copyright over all content on the website but since the image was published in 1903, does that make it public domain anyway? Thanks, Altamel (talk) 03:40, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

You should use PD-1923 since the image was published in the United States. The image is public domain, regardless of the claim posted on the website -- Diannaa (talk) 03:43, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer. Altamel (talk) 04:01, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

File:Djura Jaksic autoportret.jpg

I think the source information would need to be provided by Ninam. Still, given that Đura Jakšić died on 1878, I don't think it's an issue ;) I have thus removed the nsd tag. Cheers Platonides (talk) 21:20, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

I think it's important to have a source, so that we know the person has been correctly identified. How do we know it's the right guy? -- Diannaa (talk) 01:36, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you

Hi Diannaa, I saw the edits you made to the files I moved from en. I added User:Magog the Ogre/cleanup.js to my account. I'm planing to be more active here, is there any do's/dont's you think I should know about, when moving files ? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Mlpearc (powwow) 02:46, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

I think the script worked OKMlpearc (powwow) 03:14, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Mlpearc. Thanks for asking.
  1. Don't bother moving images that aren't properly sourced, as they just have to be deleted. If you notice unsourced files on en.wiki, they should be nominated for deletion rather than brought over to the Commons. Don't move files that are not the own work of the uploader unless they are obviously and provably in the public domain or have an OTRS ticket attached.
  2. Try to focus on files that will be useful on other wikis, and/or files that are already in use. See en:Category:Move to Commons Priority Candidates for some likely candidates.
  3. When moving files, make sure the data gets transferred accurately: Watch that you move the full-size version and not a thumbnail. Fix oddities and errors so that the patrolling admin has little or no work to do to clean up the file. For example, this becomes this (note the clean-up in the info box and especially the difference in the licensing).
  4. It depends how far you want to go, but oftentimes for historic old files there's a bigger better version out there, particularly those images available at the Library of Congress. For example, File:WI-Wauwatosa-1892.jpg, File:AJ Bessell-Browne.jpg. Old images can also be cleaned up easily using readily available software. It doesn't have to be hi-tech to create a dramatically better image, and it's fun and satisfying work with a lasting impact on the quality of the site.
  5. For your sample image, you could remove the templates {{Center}} and {{Yesno}} from the licensing section, since you already have the edit window open to use the script. Otherwise it's a good un. -- Diannaa (talk) 03:20, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Wow :) thank you so much, this will definitely save some time and work and improve quality (I'm hoping my access to OTRS will be approved, I can help out even more) again thank you for the help. If I can help with something specific, please let me know. Cheers, Mlpearc (powwow) 03:31, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Absolutely, will do. Face-smile.svg -- Diannaa (talk) 03:54, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

File:Sarasota chalk festival tra4691 2010 streetpainters.jpg

I didn't upload it, I moved it from en:wikipedia. What you do with it is entirely up to you. Personally, I couldn't care less. Go to en:wikipedia and look for yourself. If you have a problem with the file, it's your job to fix it, not mine. It's not my file. Mike Hayes (talk) 01:04, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
I know you moved it from en.wiki. It now has to be deleted from both the Commons and en.wiki. Please be more careful what files you move to Commons in the future. Thanks, -- Diannaa (talk) 01:13, 2 February 2015 (UTC) If you see files with inadequate evidence of permission in the future, please nominate them for deletion instead of transferring them here. That will cut the admin workload. -- Diannaa (talk) 01:24, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
What qualifies as "inadequate evidence of permission" in this particular case? The rules state that if you are not the owner of copyright, Wikipedia needs and e-mail from the owner. How do I know whether or not the uploader is the copyright holder, or whether Wikipedia has received an e-mail giving permission? User names are almost never real names, so how is one to tell that they are not one and the same? Mike Hayes (talk) 15:59, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
We do know in this case that the uploader is not the copyright holder, as they specified at the time of upload that the image is the property of Avenida de Colores, Inc. The usual way to prove ownership is for the copyright holder to send an email to the OTRS team from an email address that is related to the corporation. The same could be done in the case of a professional photographer, as most would have a website and related email address. Once the OTRS team receives a permission email, they add a {{PermissionOTRS}} template to the file. -- Diannaa (talk) 16:43, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

In order to protect the rights of copyright holders, images that have already appeared elsewhere online require proof that the copyright holder has released the image to Wikipeida under license. There's instructions at commons:consent. -- Diannaa (talk) 22:37, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your contribution to Wikimedia Commons. Yours sincerely, Sreejith Kulamgarath


Wiki guys, it all too confusing to new users! Each one comes and gives new messages. It would help if you could check the ticket and make necessary arrangements to add OTRS instead of deleting! How negative approach to things.. Also how can it be found on twitter 21st April first when original was uploaded to wiki commons on 20th April 2015?

Really .. It amazing!

Mpadma 11:21, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I did not see the April 20 upload, because you uploaded it under a different file name. Once the OTRS email has been assessed, an administrator will make a decision. -- Diannaa (talk) 14:18, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of my files

Me, and certainly me! has taken those pictures you deleted because of copyright. I used my own camera to take them! I'm the webmaster of http://iamt.tums.ac.ir/ webpage which also includes these pictures. How can I prove that I took this picture? can I send 100 other pictures of this event (from other camera viewpoints for example) to prove that these are all my pictures and I just choose the best one to be uploaded both on wikipedia and http://iamt.tums.ac.ir/? Or maybe I can change a tag on the webpage to ensure you that I am the webmaster of that webpage you cite as the source of this picture? Fowlia (talk) 05:27, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Dear Diannaa. Thank You for your message. The file is not a copyright violation. It is marked and I will remove those markings from all the files. However I do not understand why the file File:Training Scheme Structure-1.jpg was also deleted as it is not marked and I have the copyrights and have granted wikipedia with a license: "An email containing details of the permission for this text has been sent in accordance with WP:OTRS." What else should I do to be allowed to upload those jpgs? By the way, being new to wikipedia. Am I doing it right to answer on your talk page or should I reply on my talk page so it would than resemble a conversation. Regards Wodnikprasowy (talk) 04:41, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Please don't contact me anymore

I thought I recognized your name from somewhere and couldn't figure out where. I just realized your one of the people who supported that last ban bullshit over at ENWP. So since you don't want to collaborate with other editors and don't want high output dedicated editors like me editing your project, please don't contact me in the future. If you see something that needs to be deleted with my name on it just delete it. No need to contact me over it. I only want to work with editors who want to collaborate and it's obvious to me that you do not. I do understand that some tools contact the uploader automatically and I understand that, I will just ignore it though if I see your name. I think we will both be happier that way. Happy editing.

I was banned by community after a proposal by a sock IP. The IP was lying that I was stalking GorillaWarfare. Nobody tried to verify anything from GorillaWarfare. There were many impersonating socks of User:Undertrialryryr who makes personal attacks against users copy pasting my signature code. Only Vanjagenije knows the tricks of Undertrialryryr.


Then TopGun tried to link me with a previously banned User:Maheshkumaryadav. I am an Indian Bengali but Maheshkumaryadav is a Yadav.

SQL revoked my talk page access yesterday. I don't know whether banned users are ever unblocked. You know how much I worked against spammers and paid editors in Bollywood related articles. At this time, how long shall I wait. Even BASC is disabled. UTRS administrator asked me to email ARBCOM. My email is also blocked in English Wikipedia.

What should I do now?--The Avengers (talk) 04:41, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

MikeV says that in an OTRS ticket, you confirmed you are CosmicEmperor. As an admin, I can see the deleted attack pages that you created about GorillaWarfare. I don't think there's anything I can do to help you. Sorry, Diannaa (talk) 13:54, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
It's okay, if you don't want to help, but I didn't want to create any attack pages. I was commenting on the talk page of two user who were harassing GorillaWarfare. In those days in June 2015, I was unaware that commenting on a red linked talk page of any user, is equivalent to creating attack pages. If that was my intention then I would have done by logging out with an IP or any public wifi IP. I wouldn't have used my main account. As you can see what I wrote, I won't repeat that. I thought, if those users believed me, then they would stop harassing GorillaWarfare. I don't remember the other usernames, but as I regularly visited WP:SPI, in that period from April 2015 to June 2015, many trolls and vandals were creating usernames similar to either GorillaWarfare or Molly White. There were even SPI investigations against those accounts. They even started ANI post wasting others time. I should have left them like that, instead of doing what I did. Thanks. --The Avengers (talk) 14:31, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
I can see why you believe you created attack pages inadvertently. But it's not so much that you created the pages, it's what you said. You got no business saying that, or anything like that. It's derogatory and insulting. Combine that with your extensive history of socking, well, I have no interest in trying to help. Diannaa (talk) 14:36, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
This is my last comment in this post. I am very sorry for making such comments about GorillaWarfare. I had apologized to GorillaWarfare through emails in June 2015. You can ask GorillaWarfare through email. Reading your reply, I can say that difference in culture is responsible for my comments. Something which is considered a joke in my place; is considered derogatory in English speaking world (I wish I knew at that time). I promise, I won't create any more block evading socks or repeat such acts for which I was blocked. After 8 months, in December 2016, I would request you to give access to my talk page in English Wikipedia. Thanks. --The Avengers (talk) 01:43, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Anna Bilinska's painting of a black woman. Help please.

Hi, I happened upon this wonderful painting today. I noticed too that you are one of its users. I wondered therefore, if you could help with renaming its categories. The English translation of the Polish, Murzynka, simply means A Black Woman. It is not clear how it acquired the offensive English term, but it needs to be changed to contemporary acceptable usage. I have moved one page, but got stuck on sub-categories. Could you help with this please? Kind regards, --Po Kadzieli (talk) 23:17, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know much about categories, and won't be able to help with this task. Diannaa (talk) 00:53, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello Diannaa. I read your message about File:Oskar Schindler en Cracovia en 1942.jpg. I think it's sad we can´t use this illustrative images. How can we use photographs from the vast archive of The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum or Yad Vashem? Thanks!. Alonso de Mendoza (talk) 10:28, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Sorry but you will need to prove ownership of these photos, by following the instructions already provided on your talk page. Diannaa (talk) 19:30, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Sir, the photos I've took is in the public domain in the Philippines. Accordingly, those logos that is in the public domain in the Philippines and are considered free to reproduce, re-edit and to post on public domain site like Wikipidia under "fair-use" according to the laws here in this country (RA 8293 sec.217 - Intellectual Property Law of the Philippines: Fair-use police in exception for Educational Purposes).

I just newly discovered the rightful way on tagging it if a file is in the public domain.

Hoping for considerations. Bumbl_loid (talk) 04:02, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Please leave the tags in place and let an administrator decide what to do. Diannaa (talk) 04:55, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
Ok. I thought once the tags is fixed, so I can remove it......stood corrected. Bumbl_loid (talk) 05:06, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
