Greetings! Please poke around and leave me a message!

Please do not be offended if your images were nominated for deletion or deleted.
There are processes to provide copyright permission
and undelete images which have already been removed.

Hang in there!! Commons might seem difficult or arbitrary, just don't lose your grip and ask questions!

You can please some of the people all of the time,
You can please all of the people some of the time,
But you can't please all of the people all of the time.

Reason for deletion of an image (2)

Hi, can you please explain your decision at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Berenjacht tijdens Corona.jpg? There was no consensus to delete. Guido den Broeder (talk) 06:49, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi Guido den Broeder: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Berenjacht tijdens Corona.jpg 29 June 2020. Image nominated under COM:TOYS. It was a photo of three toys. It was deleted. Consensus of incorrect answers not required for administrator decision. If you disagree, please feel free to take it to COM:UNDEL. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:42, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
I am aware that no consensus is required, but if your decision isn't based on consensus, I expect an explanation. Just claiming that some people are wrong isn't it and won't give me an opportunity to either learn and agree or post an effective undeletion request. Guido den Broeder (talk) 08:27, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
Hi Guido den Broeder: Did you read COM:TOYS? There's no reason to retype a whole paragraph of guidelines! Also has link to prior deletions with more information.  :) Ellin Beltz (talk) 02:27, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
Of course. Nothing new there. Copyright applies to toys as it does to other stuff. That was never the issue. Did you read Commons:Threshold of originality? Guido den Broeder (talk) 10:19, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Hi Guido den Broeder: Obviously yes on your question "Did you read Commons:Threshold of originality." There were three toys depicted, probably by three designers and manufacturers and it was a copyvio. "There is no question but that stuffed toy animals are entitled to copyright protection." Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:17, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
It is not relevant that they were designed and manufactured. Everything is. Relevant is their lack of originality. Guido den Broeder (talk) 06:06, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

MV Wakashio picture

Can you take a look at Commons:Deletion requests/File:WAKASHIO...oil spill in Mauritius.jpg again? You deleted a file that was not nominated for deletion - the target of a redirect created after the deletion nomination. (Perhaps I should have closed the DR.) I believe it was originally published at [1] with acceptable license. whym (talk) 11:19, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi Whym: The image was clearly copyright violation The image at the file location you gave was identical to the image which was nominated for deletion. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:01, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Would you take a look at the file pages, not just the images again? The images were identical, but the file pages were not: the nominated file page contained no source, while the not-nominated file page contained a source which lead me to the Flickr URL I gave above. Do you think is not its original publication (or the Flickr image is different from the deleted one)? I believe it passed license review. Who was the reviewer? whym (talk) 23:15, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Hi Whym: If you look at the source above you will see the photo is credited, and not to the flickr account. Therefore the flickr account uploaded something that wasn't theirs, and we can't keep it. I have no idea who reviewed it, that's not really important. It could have been a bot. Flickr reviews are fairly regularly overturned when people take a serious look at the images. Cheers!

Friendly message

Hi, I'm TTP1233, you have tagged most of my contributions as possible delete, which is not a good sign. If I ignore all of it, but I can't tolerate one of my contributions. The last deleted one, File:Raj Chakraborty 2021.jpg, which you had deleted maybe, without seeing the permission part, where an OTRS member has verified the copyright person. Still you have deleted. Did you check Exif file comparison with the Twitter link you said in nominated for deletion. My observation is when I uploaded it, thereafter it went to Twitter but we don't know when it was uploaded. So being a bureaucrat of this Commons, how can you guarantee that this file is deleted for copyvio, where the film's attribution person has talked to OTRS member and verified this file. And the person is no other but one of my family members. I would request you that next time dont make any mistakes...I didn't came here for undeleting my file...TTP1233 (talk) 03:28, 9 June 2021 (UTC)

Túrelio is the person who closed the deletion discussion (but apparently didn't delete it). whym (talk) 11:11, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
But he didn't check the OTRS conformation, then how they can delete this picture... TTP1233 (talk) 11:53, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
TTP1233, Túrelio is the person who closed the deletion discussion. How "they deleted it" was by pushing the delete button. The OTRS editors can restore if the OTRS is confirmed. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:14, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
