Hi! I'm one of the admins and bureaucrats here on Wikimedia Commons. If I can help, please leave a message here!.

I work in a spirit of COM:AGF with Commons images for deletion, as well as categorizing and sourcing images.

Please do not be offended if your images were nominated for deletion or even deleted. There are processes to provide copyright permission and undelete even images which have already been removed. If you need a really fast response to a general question, please write at the Village Pump. To contact me, please leave your message

Free Licence for image "family tree final Sept 2015 (1)" already uploaded in existing entry "Radhabinod Pal"[edit]

Hi Ellin

I have already emailed copyright holder, who had earlier authorised me by an email, Dr Madhumita Roy (nee Pal) to send an email (using prescribed template) to granting Free Licence.

Hope this is what is needed to retain it there.

Re:Please act professionally[edit]

Then, what specific nominations are you talking about?

I promised to refrain to do personal attacks, but not refraining to comment your DRs, most of them obvious cases (like PD scans, Threshold of originality, well know Free Software and free logos) (yes, I ecceded in some of my comments). If I mentioned Copyright paranoia (seeing every element of a image as copyvio) some weeks ago, was because you're somewhat abusing COM:EVID, requiring more evidence than the enough . But instead of understanding, you're still taking most of my comments as a personal attacks, and even making the same mistake DRs (most of them resolved as Kept and even Speedy kept).

As an admin (just a trusted user with andminsitative tools), you should take advice and criticism (from other trusted users in good faith) to learn, not as personal attacks (specially the Copyright paranoia term). Anyway, if you want to avoid my comments in your DRs, please think two or three times and do a little research before nominating, and try to do more constructive and corrective editions; obvious cases anyway will be kept. You're right in most of cases, but obvious ones are just a waste of time.

PD: I recommend to you to learn the Avoid copyright paranoia (and also Avoid accusing others of copyright paranoia) essays in Meta. --Amitie 10g (talk) 18:42, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Images submission[edit]

Hi Ellin,

I am new to Wiki and had uploaded couple of my works to wikimedia, but you sent me a message that they are not properly copyrighted. All these images were created by me myself. What kind of proof you want to be placed on images? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Janelop (talk • contribs) 16:01, 08 October 2015 (UTC)
