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.

Hello, DiverDave!

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:


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]]

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:Parry–Romberg syndrome.jpg[edit]

Hallo DiverDave, do you have the explicit permission from the depicted women in File:Parry–Romberg syndrome.jpg? Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 04:35, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

No, I do not. DiverDave (talk) 04:58, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Hmm - you need to ask her. Otherwise we should delete the photo because it could violate her personality rights. See Commons:PEOPLE#Photographs_taken_in_a_private_place. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 05:20, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
I believe you are correct. Problem is, I don't know how to delete the file. Can you either delete it for me, or else show me how to do it myself? Regards, DiverDave (talk) 15:28, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Go to File:Parry–Romberg syndrome.jpg click "edit", and paste on top of the page

{{speedy|Uploader request: We do not have permission of the depicted person - see [[User_talk:DiverDave#File:Parry.E2.80.93Romberg_syndrome.jpg]]. --~~~~}}

and save. Will be deleted in a day. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 03:30, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

OK, I have pasted the tag. Too bad, it is a great photo, but you are correct and the person depicted in the image has been lost to follow-up. Thanks for your help! DiverDave (talk) 19:13, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Well done - it was deleted on 20:21:44. Yes, it was a good photo - but is has to be sacrificed to protect the rights of the depicted. Thank you for cooperating and understanding. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 01:18, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
