File:Sanlorenzo Viareggio.jpg

Hi, I received an OTRS ticket for the file File:Sanlorenzo Viareggio.jpg. Can you please explain me why it was deleted? The uploader is the author and the structure is a storehouse. --Ruthven (msg) 17:03, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

If I remember correctly, some of the uploader's images were published before their upload on Commons, so I did a mass tagging. For this particular image, I'm now unable to find any sources, so this probably was erroneously tagged. --Didym (talk) 17:44, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
Ok, thank you! I'll consider that when dealing with the ticket. Cheers, Ruthven (msg) 13:43, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Commons als Möglcihkeit zum freien Datenaustausch

Hallo Didym, wie wäre es wenn ihr dafür eine speziellen Bereich einrichten würdet, der sowas wie die Spielwiese ist. Soll heißen alles was dort hochgeladen wird, wird nicht überprüft und wird automatisch von einem Bot innerhalb von 12 Stunden wieder gelöscht. Die Versionsgeschichte nach drei Monaten, entsprechend den Gesetzen zur Vorratsdatenspeicherung. Es wird für Hochlader klargemacht, dass er kein geschützes Material hochladen darf, dem Herunterlader klargemacht, dass das Herunterladen von diesen Dateien möglicherweise gegen Gesetze verstößt. Das macht es unnötig diese Daten permanent aussortieren zu müssen und würde verhindern, dass dauernd neue Accounts angelegt werden zur zum Zwecke von Datenaustausch, die dann wieder gesperrt werden müssen. --Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 03:45, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Das würde leider wenig bringen, den Hochladern ist in den allermeisten Fällen bekannt, dass das Material geschützt ist, trotzdem wird einfach hochgeladen. Zudem sind die Dateien momentan meist so groß, dass erhebliche Mengen an Speicherplatz (im Schnitt wahrscheinlich etwa 500 MB pro Datei) dadurch verschwendet würden. In gewisser Weise geht auch der Sinn von Template:Uwlsubst in diese Richtung. --Didym (talk) 22:09, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Ist mir bewusst, dass die Hochlader wissen, dass sie gegen Gesetze verstoßen. Eine gelöschte Datei braucht doch immer noch Platz, weil sie ja eigentlich nicht gelöscht, sondern nur versteckt ist, oder sehe ich das falsch? Wenn man das dauerhaft in den Griff kriegen will, müsste man auch das so löschen, so dass nichts mehr davon physikalisch übrig ist. Das Problem kriegst du nur dann in den Griff, wenn du den Zugang auf irgendeine Weise beschränkst also so, dass große Dateien nur noch von vertrauenswürdigen Benutzern hochgeladen werden können, alle anderen müssen große Dateien vorher anmelden und können in einem Zeitfenster entsprechendes hochladen. Was groß ist orientiert sich dabei an dem, was eine gängige moderne Profikamera als Dateigröße ausgibt. Ein Filter könnte außerdem das Dateiformat überprüfen und nur Formate akzeptieren, die in irgendeiner Form Mediendateien sind, also keinen Programmcode, Festplattendumps, Zipdateien etc.--Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 09:43, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

suppression de fichiers photos

Bonjour Didym je suis l'auteurs d'autres articles, avec des photos que j'ai prise et dont je suis le propriétaire. Cependant, certains sites internet, autres que wikipédia, en font leur propre utilisation après publication à partir d'un compte utilisateur personnel. je rencontre donc un problème ici, car mon travail, publié sur des espaces personnels d'autres ites étant ensuite réutilisé par lesdits sites à leurs fins personnelles, je me retrouve à ne plus pouvoir les utiliser moi même..... quelle solution proposez vous afin de ne pas mettre en doute le copyright de mon propre travail à votre niveau ?

Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure

Hi there,

Just wondering why you have recommened the photographs for deletion. The photographs themselves belong to John Otway and I was asked by him (as his media representative) to add them to the wikipedia page. We have full copyright for all the images that belong to us.

Best wishes

Deadly

Blocking

Hello, how you doing? So, what about now? I've been using this account for more than 3 weeks by now. So, what do you think? Memyselfi357 (talk) 01:24, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

As of now, I'm not against unblocking, but I won't do it myself. Could you start a formal request (you should still know how to do this)? --Didym (talk) 20:38, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Hilfe wird benötigt

hallo! nachdem du mir schon mal geholfen hast: ich habe ein risenproblem, ich habe endel etztens jahres zum otrs-team eine mail wegen einer freigabe gesendet. ich habe dies nochmal vor kurzem getan, ich habe über 100 fotos, die ich hochladen wollen würde und die arbeit hängt, weil ich keine nachricht vom otrs-team bekam. ich nehme an, jetzt muss ich an jeden einzelnen upload, was es verdammt verlangsamt, weil ich wirklich jede datei einzeln hochladen müsste, ein blödes pending hängen. kann man da mal irgendwas beschleunigen? wo hängt es denn? freigabe war von Francisco Peralta Torrejón für User Gedenksteine (jameslwood hat den account, siehe seine diksussionsseite auf grund eines missverstndnisses gesperrt, wir haben uns geeinigt, wir lassen es so und die freigaben werden auf Abadonna umgeschrieben, das wäre inzwischen Donna Gedenk wegen umbenennung). Alle Fotos, die er macht darf ich für ihn hochladen. allerdings - es hängt. wo auch immer. bitte um hilfe! danke!--Donna Gedenk (talk) 22:34, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Hilft dir diese Änderung weiter? --Didym (talk) 23:56, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
guten morgen, ok, jetzt ist es zumindest amtlich, dass ich als donna gedenk die fotos hochladen darf, die ich vorher schon hochladen durfte als gedenksteine, mich irritiert nur, dass eigentlich mir jameslwoodward schrieb, er würde es entsprechend reinschreiben und ich dachte, das passt schon. jetzt habe ich nur ein massives problem mit den fotos von francisco peralta torrejon, wo beim otrs eine schriftliche erlaubnis vorliegt, aber nichts passiert ist bisher. hab gerade um die 150 fotos von ihm, die hochgeladen werden müssen.--Donna Gedenk (talk) 09:44, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
Im Ticket war das auch tatsächlich eingetragen, nur eben nicht in der Vorlage. Eine unbearbeitete Freigabe von Francisco Peralta Torrejón kann ich im OTRS nicht finden, hast du eine Ticketnummer? --Didym (talk) 12:37, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
nein, habe nichts, hab im november oder dezember gemailt, dann am 12.2. und gestern wieder. habe von ihm ein handschriftlich ausgefülltes blatt, welches ich weiterschickte. bekam aber keinerlei reaktion bisher :-(. und er selber kann nichts mailen, daher handschriftlich ausgefüllte genehmigung mit unterschrift. brauchst Du meine mailadresse? mag die hier nicht reinschreiben.--Donna Gedenk (talk) 12:43, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
Weiter per E-Mail. --Didym (talk) 12:58, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Didym, I took this photo. I can upload it and freely distribute it. Please do not delete my work. I own it and I'd like it to correspond to the wiki page for Chris Moorman. It is a good shot and has been approved by myself and Chris Moorman.

Mancinelli Laura small.JPG

Is a personal picture of my aunt writer! Is possible to upload it? I have all the copyright to put it..! It's Quite evident? Simone Mancinelli --Simoneapril1976 (talk) 13:25, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Nothing is evident. The image is widely available on the web. If you own the copyright (which usually means you have taken the photo, just owning a copy is not sufficient), please contact OTRS. --Didym (talk) 13:31, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

In particular this photo is widely available on the web.. since the date in which I upload it on Wikimedia Commons not before .. this because is a private picture of my aunt Simone Mancinelli --Simoneapril1976 (talk) 13:45, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

File:September 11, 1961 - a Public Visiting - Women's prison of Shahrbani.jpg

can you help me for categorizing and Description of this file. --Chyah (talk) 18:35, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Does this file need any further description or categories? In my opinion, the description is sufficient and the categories are quite good. --Didym (talk) 18:40, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

noch immer irgendas nicht, entweder bekomme ich keine mails oder irgendwas läuft schief. kannst Du Dir das bitte nochmal anscheun? finde den ungeklärten zustand recht belastend.--Donna Gedenk (talk) 08:57, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Soweit ich sehe wurden die Dateien am Freitag einzeln mit der OTRS-Freigabe markiert, du solltest auch eine E-Mail bekommen haben. --Didym (talk) 12:50, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
habe nichts gefunden, kein mail. sehe jetzt aber, dass ich da freigegebene dateien habe. gibt es da wie bei michelides ein otrs-ding, dass ich beim hochladen gleich eintragen kann?--Donna Gedenk (talk) 17:16, 13 March 2017 (UTC) hier ist zum beispiel noch ohne https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Stolperstein_f%C3%BCr_Rudolf_Vogl.jpg , aber wenn es da wieder etwas zum eingeben gibt, dann kann ich es selber nachtragen--Donna Gedenk (talk) 17:19, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

File:Kyle Schlesinger Austin 2016.jpg

Hi Didym. Thank you for your help at User talk:INeverCry#File:MUNI.jpg. Since you are an admin, I am wondering if you would mind taking a look at File:Kyle Schlesinger Austin 2016.jpg when you have the time. The uploader and the en:Kyle Schlesinger subject of the photo appear to be the same person, which could possibly mean it's (1) a selfie or (2) a photo taken by someone else. Given the pose of the photo, etc., the photo did not look like a selfie to me, so I tagged it with {{Npd}}. That tag was removed by another editor as explained at User talk:Marchjuly#could you please be more careful.... Any clarification you can provide regarding this would be appreciated. FWIW, if I made a mistake in applying the template and the file's licensing is acceptable, then I have no problem with it. I would just like to know for my own future reference. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:48, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

That template might be too unspecific, but a deletion request seems to be justified. Even if the photo is a selfie, we should verifiy the uploader is the depicted person and not just someone else. --Didym (talk) 14:04, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for taking a look. How do you suggest this be resolved then? If you look at my user talk, you'll find that the editor who removed the npd template seems to be convinced that the licensing is not really an issue. I'm not interested in edit warring over a deletion template, but what you wrote above does make sense to me and I'm not sure we should just assume that the uploader and the person shown in the photo are automatically one and the same. -- Marchjuly (talk) 15:04, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Sorry

wenn ich nochmal... aber ich habe gerade wieder einen ganzen schwung fotos vom 2. fotografen erhalten, für den ersten habe ich ja da eine kürzelvorlage zum eintragen, könntest Du mir nachschauen oder sagen, ob ich das auch für den zweiten fotografen habe? will nicht schon wieder jedes bild einzeln ans otrs senden müssen :-(--Donna Gedenk (talk) 17:27, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Da scheint es noch nichts zu geben. Ich will das Ticket nicht dem aktuellen Bearbeiter wegnehmen, du könntest dich aber mit der Ticketnummer der Freigabe ans OTRS wenden und um eine Vorlage wie {{ChristianMichelides}} bitten. --Didym (talk) 22:18, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
ok, danke, hab nen mail hingeschrieben, hoffe nur, das dauert nicht sooo ewig :-). danke!--Donna Gedenk (talk) 15:26, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
hi, sie verstehen es nicht, jetzt hat mir wer anders geantwortet und hat es nicht verstanden und ich soll nochmal die freigabe senden und die fotos, die es betrifft. verzweifle hier gerade. nachdem es ja zukünftige fotos betrifft. habe dem eigentlich die ticketnr. gesendet. bitte, kannst Du übernehmen?? die verstehen mich nicht!--Donna Gedenk (talk) 14:12, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

What do you want in order to be convinced? there were my photos, i share my personal album form a city where i lived almost 10 years.

If you have a good explanaition for the small images, different cameras, missing metadata and Facebook tags in metadata, you can request undeletion at COM:UD.

gelöschte WLE-Bilder

Hallo Didym, wo find ich den Löschantrag zB für File:Märzenbecherwald bei Algersdorf02.jpg? Scheint es geht um mehr als 10 Bilder. Bei einigen hab ich den LA gesehen, aber der war ja erst gestern. Wollt noch dazu schreiben, daß "zu geringe Auflösung" nur für die internationale Endausscheidung gilt. Da waren doch einige schöne Aufnahmen drunter, die auch für Artikel brauchbar gewesen wären. Schade daß sie jetzt weg sind. Holger1959 (talk) 21:55, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Die Löschung wurde im OTRS angefragt. Grund ist, dass der Uploader gerne alle Bilder unter einem Namen haben will, in diesem Fall dem nicht gesperrten Alternativkonto. Die Bilder sollen wieder hochgeladen werden, sind also nicht dauerhaft weg. --Didym (talk) 21:58, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Hello Didym, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well.

Question regarding book cover.

I uploaded a book cover for a article I have in my sandbox that I want to incorporate into the article one day. I don't think I did the permission correctly. How can I fix this so that it is not deleted?

Thank you --Hardindr (talk) 15:37, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

The copyright holder, in this case probably Skyhorse Publishing, has to contact OTRS to confirm the licensing. Otherwise, an administstor will delete the file after 7 days. --Didym (talk) 16:03, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Okay, can you explain to me how a low-resolution cover for a book can be used in a Wikipedia article without the copyright holder giving consent? I see covers this one being used all the time, and it doesn't look like they contacted the copyright holder to get permission. Can I do something similar with the image I wish to use? --Hardindr (talk) 08:01, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
Some wikipedias accept fair use, but those files have to be uploaded locally, not on Commons. --Didym (talk) 11:43, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
I don't know what that means. I thought you had to upload images to the Commons to put them on Wikipedia. How would I go about uploading it "locally?" --Hardindr (talk) 12:09, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
You can also upload files locally, for enwiki using en:Wikipedia:File Upload Wizard. --Didym (talk) 19:19, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I don't do a lot on commons, but notice the good work you do regarding copyright violations. Not sure what you can do, but you might want to check out the uploads of the above editor.

Commons Conference project

Hello

I'm writing you as one of the most active Commons users right now. Since a while now, the idea of a dedicated Commons conference has been floating around. But since the last Wikimania concrete steps have been taken to actually make it happen next year. If you're interested in participation or maybe willing to help organize the first ever Commons Conference, I invite you to check out the project page and leave your comments; or just show your support for the idea, by signing up.

Cheers,

(CC BY-ND 2.0) is not uploadable?

Look at this. --Kasper2006 (talk) 15:00, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Per Commons:Licensing, NC and ND licenses are not acceptable. At least one of your uploads was actually even all rights reserved at the source on flickr. --Didym (talk) 15:04, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
can you tell me please how can I search from Flickr to find uploadable images? --Kasper2006 (talk) 15:12, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
for example, people who run in the mountains will have thousands, all in all, the ones I uploaded (and you deleted me) are not that they have a specific interest. --Kasper2006 (talk) 15:15, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
When searching for images on flickr, you can set the license to "allow commercial use and derivatives" (at least to something with this meaning). Usually, you can upload those files to Commons, but you have to mention the license and add {{Flickrreview}} to the file page. --Didym (talk) 15:23, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

But Quirinale images can be loaded

look at this --Kasper2006 (talk) 15:55, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

The OTRS tag at this file page is at least invalid, if not even abusive, it was added by yourself and you are not an OTRS member. The permission granted in this ticket may be valid for some files, but I'm unable to verify this ticket in it, so please ask on COM:OTRS/Noticeboard for a check, and request a permission template that includes the ticket if the permission is valid. --Didym (talk) 16:20, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Sorry, but the image it's secure uplodable. I was probably wrong because I copied an existing form with this license. you could not correct it and leave the image even if it was deleted so it would be a shame. --Kasper2006 (talk) 16:42, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
I'm actually not sure if this ticket is valid at all. @Ruthven: could you have a look at this ticket? --Didym (talk) 17:04, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Bzgl. Versionslöschung von Benutzerseiten....

Hi Didym,

Danke zunächst für die Löschung(en) gestern Abend. Ich hätte da noch eine Zusammenfassungszeile als Kandidaten in der Historie meiner Benutzerseite (gestern, 16:32 Uhr, gut gemeint aber schlecht gemacht....) Sonst ist die Löschung der Zusammenfassungszeile davor relativ witzlos. Keine Ahnung, bestimmt gibt es davon noch mehr Kandidaten, war ja sicher ein Massenedit.

Danke dir und Gruß, --Druschba 4 (talk) 08:53, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Mit der Löschung der Zusammenfassungszeile dieser Bearbeitungen hatte ich gestern schon angefangen, den Rest aber auf heute verschoben. Die Versionsgeschichte deiner Benutzerseite wäre dann auch ohne Hinweis aufgeräumt worden. --Didym (talk) 11:41, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
Danke dir. Ich hatte zwar im Löschlog nachgesehen, dort aber nichts entsprechendes gefunden. Naja, hat wohl an meiner eigenen Blindheit gelegen. Sellerie, wie die Franzosen sagen. Gruß, --Druschba 4 (talk) 11:45, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Recent deletions

Hello,

It looks like you deleted a few images Roland zh recently nominated. I am hoping you can elaborate on the reason.

The reason given was "DR started to verify claimed 'own work' : rather small-sized format, but also missing EXIF data to verify origin and claimed 'own work', hence, potentially non-free content - your opinions ?"

Was there evidence that this was not "own work" or is there reason to assume that if there is no EXIF data and it is small size that it was not actually the uploader's own work?

Came across this because it was apparently part of a class assignment (see this thread on the enwiki Education Noticeboard) to create images for use on Wikimedia projects. A few look like they were deleted for depicting copyrighted works, and if that was the case with these then certainly it's justified, but otherwise? — Rhododendrites talk |  21:22, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Without Exif data at a small resolution, we usually don't require further evidence of not being own work to assume a copyright violation. Also, those images were at least close to falling out of our project scope, so it's not worth the risk of keeping a copyright violation. Depicting copyrighted works was not a problem at all, all copyrighted content was de minimis. --Didym (talk) 21:37, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick reply. If there was no copyright issue and the claim of "own work" appears legitimate, could you restore them? They were uploaded with the intention to use on Wikimedia projects, suggesting there's at least an argument about scope. If you still think they should be deleted for scope reasons, perhaps a new deletion request with that rationale is in order? — Rhododendrites talk |  21:44, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
The actual reason for deletion was copyright, not the scope issue. With highly valuable images, it may be worth the risk of hosting a copyright violation (if that risk is small enough), but compared to the value of these images (which isn't zero, but quite low), the risk is just too high. The uploader is free to upload a version with Exif data in full resolution at any time. --Didym (talk) 06:38, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

my mistake

I helped Special:Log/Roberto_Bertini to upload by smartphone 7 photos, but forgot to tell him to choose the licence PD-Italy or PD-1996|country.IT; can I correct the photos. Thanks --Susanna Giaccai (talk) 06:56, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

I am not really convinced we can keep them, but if you disagree, you can request undeletion at COM:UD. --Didym (talk) 09:54, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Regarding File:Jorge-Ferrer-Foto-Photo.gif

Hi there! I see the file was deleted due of absence of license. I sent out a note from the author of the pic on July 20, 2017 to permissions-commons-es@wikimedia.org. How should I submit my message again? Thanks.

Kind regards,

Unfortunately, the permissions-es queue on OTRS does have a quite large backlog at the moment, there are still some unanswered tickets created in march. But your message is there and will be handled sooner or later, so you don't have to send it in again. --Didym (talk) 00:51, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi

Hi. I have a series of photos to delete. I should probably nominate them for deltetion, however I would have to nominate each one of them and state the reason for each. why not do that once and for all. I was experimenting with the original photo of a singer on which she doesn't look too flattering ( https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Margaret_(Małgorzata_Jamroży)_By_Daniel_Åhs_Karlsson.jpg ). I was cropping the image etc and uploading new versions to see what it would look like in the infobox eventually getting it right. However, in the process I have uploaded so many similar versions which are just a waste of space. These are:

Do you think you could delete them ? ArturSik (talk) 12:36, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

All gone now. --Didym (talk) 13:48, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you so much:) ArturSik (talk) 15:31, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

As this license doesn't allow commercial use, we have to delete the file according to COM:L. Also, this images is probably not included in the licensing, as it was taken by another person decades ago. --Didym (talk) 15:54, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Removed my file

You removed an image from the Bad Royale page which I placed. This is not a copyright violation as I am Bad Royale and this is my file.

As this needs verification, please follow the process mentioned on COM:OTRS. --Didym (talk) 16:53, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

Foto di F.M.Mirabella

Faccio presente che il Mirabella è morto nel 1931(vedi pagina Wikipedia) e pertanto sono già passati 86 anni. Occorre qualcosa?Pugliesig (talk) 21:11, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

The photo itself seems to be OK, but as the frame is 3-dimensional, the reproduction is copyrighted. You could crop away the frame, but as the photo is already very small, there would not be much left after cropping. --Didym (talk) 21:23, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
