Hi Ellin Beltz, I saw that you deleted some of the images I uploaded, specifically Avestan_geography.png, avestan_geography_vendidad_witzel.png, avestan_geography_vendidad_grenet.png, and Avestan_geography_mihr_yasht.png. The older version of one of these images (Avestan_geography.png) was flagged in early June for possible copyright infringement with the notice "Source of derivative work not properly indicated." The source I used was for the topographic background of the image, which I had originally taken from That website explicitly states that their maps can be used without restriction. I notified the Wikimedia user who had left the message, but received no confirmation as to whether or not this would resolve the copyright issue. I was therefore concerned and decided to replace the background with another source of topographic maps, namely I used this source because I saw that several other images on Wikimedia use this website as a source for topographic maps, and the website explicitly states that all data can be used without restrictions. After switching to this other source, I created several more images with this background and uploaded them. I included the source in the description of each image, following the template I saw on the file description page of these other images. Can you please explain to me why you deleted all my files anyway? Fhesse (talk) 18:52, 12 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
