Pyotr Slovtsov[edit]

Hello! Help me to understand a question of copyrights please.I am the author of several broadcasts about creativity of opera singer Peter Slovtsova.My co-authors-regular employees of radio station "National radio" and "RtV-Podmoskove" had for these transfers, unlike me monetary compensation.I have been interested in rehabilitation of my grandfather-subjected to repression in 1937 was my most important task.For this reason my work was absolutely free. contacted supervising directors radio stations-they publication of these broadcasts do not object.Moreover, they are interested in popularisation of the of radio station.At present the unique justification of the publication of these broadcasts in entsiklopedii-is my desire, desire of the basic author.With respect - Сергей Соковнин (talk) 14:09, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

No mistake... at least by you.[edit]

I just got a message from your bot claiming that I didn't add a license to three images I've uploaded. Actually, I did, but I believe that they were deleted when I was required to rename them before uploading them. I've since re-added the licenses that have disappeared. ----DanTD (talk) 21:13, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

I didn't say it was caused by your bot, and I agree it was the uploading tool. Of course that mistake by the uploading tool triggered your bot. ----DanTD (talk) 03:12, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

No instructions.[edit]

I've received a message saying that one of my pictures lacks a copyright notice. I will gladly correct this to match the other pictures I uploaded today, but HOW? I have read everything I can link to, but can't find instructions on how to do this simple thing, just warnings that if I don't, the picture will be deleted. There isn't even an answer in the FAQ. Grrrrr.

Likewise you warn that you won't answer unsigned questions - but how does one sign anything? Really, Wikipedia does take an awful lot for granted - or is it a deliberate ploy to discourage contributors? I'm not even sure if this is the way to contact you via this talk page. What's wrong with a standard edit box and Send button? Kendall K. Down

Thanks for your help. I trust this is now signed? I've also tried to add a suitable copyright to Glenmoriston2010a.jpg KendallKDown (talk) 07:35, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

I have to agree that Wikipedia is incredibly difficult to follow and makes contributing (by people who are recognised experts on a particular subject) extremely difficult to the point that they won't bother. Wikipedia is failing to make contributing user-friendly and by having instructions and help pages that are very confusing and complicated it essentially restricts its content. I know many people who are experts in one subject and who all want to improve a page but none of us can comprehend how do do so. Make it simpler Wikipedia!!!!! [user talk:dcrobertson68]

No mistake made ... entry deleted[edit]

I recognized that many companies, also SME´s, have entries about their companies on wikipedia.

Because of that, I thought it might be a good idea to do so as well. I followed the instructions and set up a wikipedia-site for the company I work for. About an hour later I got the message that my entry was deleted because I was the only user who edited the entry and that it would be only an entry for advertising reasons. So I wondered whether I am allowed to create a wikipedia-site for my company? And I wondered why all other companies are allowed to? Is there any criteria for it?!

I would be very thankful if you would tell me which steps I did wrong, or better: how I can make an entry about the company I work for without erasure following.

Thanks for your help. PeCo-PerformanceConsulitng (talk) 08:32, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

KurtEisner1919.jpg and license[edit]

Hello Filnik, though I don't quite get what was missing from the file I uploaded, I indeed made a mistake: it seems the author died in June 8th 1940 but his works will not be in the public domain till the end of the year (I assumed it was 70 years from the date of his death). Thus, I'd be grateful if you could delete it for the time being. I will try to remember and add it back into Commons next year. Thanks you in advance for your help.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 18:16, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

A database error...[edit]

Dear Filnik , hello !

I took advantage of your kind invitation to contact you when we have a problem, so please excuse me for the inconvenience. I want to ask you what does mean this message on my gallery page about the occurrence of an error in the database and how can I solve this problem. Thanks in advance!

A database error...[edit]

Dear Filnik , thank you for your message and reply . I can not give now a link because the issue was resolved, but I do not know by who. On July 25 the error still exists. I left a message with this error to Túrelio , on July 25 (I saw it in his gallery too), but he never found it. The message is in history (it was deleted in the meantime). The error was that it only display the last downloaded image, other images could not be accessed . Have a nice evening . Argenna (talk) 21:22, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

hello, I received your message about a missing license for my image [[3]], but I didn't know how to add the license or even what to add, though I went to the pages explaining what to do :/ It has been a time since I last came to Commons and I forgot a lot of things ^^' so a little help will be the most welcomed :)

Fixing the license and changing a file name to binomials[edit]

I'm having the same problem as some other folks - I can't see where to change or add the license to Multi-license with CC-BY-SA-3.0 and GDFL (recommended). I think I've been to every link there is and I still can't find it - can it really be that difficult to do? I would be more than happy to change it, but how? I can just wait a week and start over when the file has been automatically deleted, but I'd really like to know how to correct this.

Also, I would like to rename all my images that use English common names to the standard binomials. Should I change the name of the images from English to the binomial before uploading? The instructions for renaming a file say: "If you're not an admin, you can place the text {{rename|newname.ext|reason}} on the image description page. An administrator will perform the move, if it conforms to the guidelines described below."

Where exactly do I put "{{rename|newname.ext|reason}}"? There are at least two edit places to add it - I tried the top one and got an offsite third-party webpage! I also tried to upload the same image with the binomial name and I could not do that, so at my image, there are now 4 unwanted images while I was working out that this approach doesn't work.

I could really use a little help. Thanks, Amaling

request to delete files[edit]

Please could you delete the Flag of Berkshire.jpg and Wap_vv_hoofkerk.jpg‎ (if not already deleted). Struggling with license-tags, I do not wish to use them. No harm intended in uploading them. Thank you --Williwaw (talk) 11:45, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

File:Strokkur geyser erupting 2.ogv[edit]

Your bot said there's an issue with the licensing of this video, but it didn't give much of a clue what that problem might be. It says I've "only used a template, not a license", but when I look at Commons:Choosing a license, I'm told that "If you don't want to read this and just want to know which license the Commons community recommends, choose one of the following: {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}}: "Copyleft (Multi-license GFDL, all CC-BY-SA)"; {{PD-self}}: "All rights released (Public domain or waiver if the PD release is invalidated)". I've already marked it with {{own}} and with CC and GFDL licenses ({{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}}{{GFDL-self}}), which seems to be pretty much what that page advises: what more is needed?! I think the Commons help pages on the issue of licensing seriously need revising, as I'm hardly a simpleton and I have trouble working out what hoops to jump through and boxes to tick.

Request to delete file File:Wilhelm von Brandenburg-.jpg[edit]

Hello! I uploaded a picture of Riga's last Archbishop, but hitted wrong key first time and so picture went up half-named and without license. Later I uploaded picture properly, but since I can't delete older picture, it's still up with half name and without license. So, maybe You can delete it? Athanasius Soter (talk) 20:03, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Bot tagging of files already marked for speedy deletion[edit]

Per Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests#File:Benton Burlesque, 1922.jpg, I though I'd suggest to you that it might be a good idea if your bot(s) skipped any files already tagged for speedy deletion (at least for tags like {{bad name}} where the deletion is indeed likely to be speedy, maybe not for "delayed speedy" like {{nsd}}/{{nld}}/{{npd}}). It just seems a bit pointless to warn people about problems with files that are likely to be gone by the time they see the warning. What do you think? —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 16:37, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Photo of Roman barbotine cup[edit]

I am new to uploading pictures, so I don't know what the trouble is here. This photo was taken yesterday (23 August 2010), by me, in the British Museum galleries, as were the other files I have uploaded so far. It is absolutely my own copyright. I edited it (cropping, lightening etc.) in Photoshop, but I have also edited the others. I have chosen the 'recommended' licence option on all uploads so far. Please help me understand what I have done wrong. AgTigress (talk) 13:06, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Your bot error?[edit]

Your bot "Nikbot" tagged File:Kansai Wikimedia Unconference 20100626 02.JPG as "No license", but the file has been for speedy deletion ({{bad name}}). I think your bot must check the file's status of deletion before it tag and warn.--aokomoriuta (talk) 14:26, 25 August 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for the counsel, I'll try to introduce a valid licence, but I'm not completely shure to achieve it, I'm not very proficient in Wikimedia. --Miguel Bravo-Ferrer (talk) 15:43, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Hello, I am new here on Wikimedia Commons. You have sent me messages that copyrights are missing from two of my photographs: Garden Solhaug.jpg and Pinsemenigheten, Betania.jpg. I do not know what do do? Can you please explain that? I have uploaded these photographs twice, because their file names were uncorrect in the beginning. You wrote that I could add the licence in the the image linked above. What image? Please give me a reply. Best wishes! Mbakkel2 27. aug 2010 21:49 (UTC)

Job for your bot[edit]

Hi! Your bot hunts down files without a license. I noticed that this file does not have a license File:Kvogur.jpg but it has not been tagged. Is {{insignia}} on the skip list?

Need help with licencing[edit]

Hello Filnik i see that I've had some trouble with my logo uploading.... I still don"t get everything on this website, but I'm getting better everyday :) Anyway, about the incorrect licence: I used the choice list given when uploading the file and I messed up the licence type.... I should have used "logo" instead of "my own work"... I did the logo so it is my work in a way, but I suppose I "logo" is better...

On the other hand , I have another question, how do i erase an image I uploaded? In order to complete the article I'm writing I used the old logo (I hadn't finished the new one :) ) and now I would like to erase it, but it doesn't seem I can... If you can help me with the licence problem and this one, you'd save my day :D

I received a message from nikbot saying that an image that i have added, paintingm.jpg, doesn't have a proper license. I thought I went through the proper channels and added the license correctly?

Lauro Chieza de Carvalho (talk) 17:31, 29 December 2010 (UTC)[edit]

Hello! I am trying to update the script so that it could work in ru.wikipedia. I've added new translations, categories of license plates, etc. It works OK and tags images without license but I have one problem: when I use -duplicates paramater bot breaks when finds such a file. For example:

100 2994.jpg has a duplicate! Reporting it...
Execution time: 29
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1915, in <module>
  File "", line 1896, in checkbot
    response2 = mainClass.checkImageDuplicated(duplicates_rollback)
  File "", line 1099, in checkImageDuplicated
    if self.duplicatesReport or only_report:
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'only_report' referenced before assignment

I haven't changed the code of the script, only translations, so, I think, the problem is in script itself. Can you advice me how to solve this problem? Or is it better to open a bug on tracker ? rubin16 (talk) 08:47, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Category: Paintings of Saint Rosalie[edit]

Ciao Filnik, dopo aver creato la suddetta categoria, ci ho improvvidamente caricato le immagini di due dipinti del Prado trovate sul web: 1) 70px e 2) 70px .

Riguardandole ad alta risoluzione ho notato la presenza in sovrimpressione del logo del Museo. Non è presente la "C" del copyright, ma forse sarebbe più prudente eliminarle. Potresti dargli un'occhiata ed eventualmente ( sigh! mi dispiacerà moltissimo per il van Dyck, ma...) procedere alla loro "cancellazione immediata"? Grazie! --Memorato (talk) 09:54, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Ciao Filnik, molte grazie. E ho incassato anche la ramanzina. A riguardo, nella categoria museo del Prado c'è più di un'immagine con lo stesso logo in sovrimpressione (e questa volta non caricata dal sottoscritto); sarà il caso che qualcuno vi compia una piccola ricognizione --Memorato (talk) 22:30, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Ma nel caricare la penultima (OF9b), ho sbagliato a scrivere il titolo.

Deleted image at Italian Wikipedia[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved– Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 21:16, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Filnik, I was referred to you from my discussion at Commons:Help_desk#Can_admins_see_deleted_histories_across_language_wikis.3F. I was hoping you would be able to go to this image and look for the uploader's original "source" proving the image was licensed for use on Wikipedia. The image was eventually moved to File:Avril_Lavigne_Geneva_June_09_2005.jpg and I believe it to be a copyvio image, but I can't prove it. In addition, I have tried to contact the original photographer with no luck, but I emailed him a second time a few moments ago. I'm sort of hoping there may be a clue in the deleted image information at the Italian Wiki. Thanks so much! – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 21:04, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Stemma comunale errato[edit]

Buongiorno Filnik, rappresento il comune di Collina d'Oro e scrivo a nome dell'esecutivo comunale (il Municipio) per chiedere un aiuto. Lo stemma presente sulla pagina del nostro comune è errato, è stato caricato nel 2008 ma non sappiamo esattamente da chi. Ora, trattandosi di uno stemma comunale la licenza di utilizzo è praticamente illimitata o regolata comunqe da leggi che ci consentono di pubblicarlo in 'libero utilizzo' essendone i legittimi proprietari. Purtroppo accade che molti utenti utilizzino questo stemma (errato) al posto di quello 'ufficiale' presente sul nostro sito istituzionale e questo al Sindaco non piace per nulla. Avrei bisogno di sapere come posso correggere questo errore inviando (come, a chi, in che modo) lo stemma corretto da pubblicare su wikipedia. Mi rendo conto che malgrado io e i miei colleghi siamo degli utilizzatori pressochè giornalieri del sistema informativo più conosciuto del mondo, non sappiamo in realtà praticamente nulla sulla sua costruzione e modifica. La ringrazio già sin d'ora per ogni aiuto che potrà fornirci.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Filnik!

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

license warning after renaming[edit]

Hi Filnik, after renaming a file, I sometimes change the resulting redirect to a {{bad name}} to get it deleted by an admin. Especially after having typos in files just uploaded. And 5 minutes later your bot bashes me for not having a license. Although I can as well live with that, there is no need to warn in that case and maybe you can improve the behavior, cheers, --Herzi Pinki (talk) 07:02, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

De-adminship warning[edit]

Dear Filnik. I am writing to you to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2011 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

foto Marramao FondazioneBasso.jpg[edit]

Ciao, ho un problema con la licenza della foto Marramao_FondazioneBasso.jpg nel senso che ho provato a specificare che, pur non essendo io l'autrice, avevo il permesso di usare l'immagine, tuttavia è stata ugualmente segnalata la violazione di copyright e il file è stato rimosso dalla pagina Wikipedia inglese in cui l'avevo inserito (Giacomo Marramao). Si tratta di una foto scattata per conto della Fondazione Basso, diretta dal prof. Marramao e l'ho ricevuta dal prof. stesso con la richiesta di usarla per la sua pagina sul Wikipedia inglese. Mi ha detto che il copyright è della Fondazione e mi ha autorizzata a pubblicarla online, tra l'altro informandomi che la stessa era già stata utilizzata per un paio di suoi libri come foto profilo. Quando ho caricato il file su Wiki Commons ho provato a specificare tutto ciò ma o non l'ho fatto secondo gli standard previsti oppure la mia spiegazione è stata ignorata. Non so come fare per ripristinare il tutto correttamente: puoi aiutarmi? Grazie! Dreammy

Please remove the inappropriate restriction your bot placed on my image[edit]


I work as a consultant for Wikimedia Foundation and your bot just placed an inappropriate restriction for this image I just uploaded as part of my work:

I have no idea why that restriction was added, as I filled in all the fields correctly, as I do for all other images I create for Wikimedia.

Please remove this restriction at your earliest convenience. I need this image to stay up for this project.

Hi Fabrice, first of all: It does not count a bit if you are a hobby photographer or Jimbo Wales.
Apparently you understood now that the bot was totally right and you were wrong. ;-)
By the way: "Wikimedia Foundation" is no source. Please state how you got this image. If you are the author of the mockup the correct source would be {{own}}. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 02:31, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Evanex! Please ask such questions at Commons:Help desk (there also was a direct link on the file page in the license section).
You have added a license tag now - yes - but only the author / creator / designer of the image can issue such a license.
I had a look in COM:L and COM:CT but couldn't find anything about Panama. In this case here see also COM:COA. Unless we know that the image is freely licensed or public domain we cannot use it. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 20:24, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Incomplete License[edit]

About all of my recent uploads of images,

I understand that to upload images that are for information purposes without permission is not accepted, but, It's just to add more a little more understanding or to make the article recognizable for the readers, in no way I want to harm the companies, I just know alot about retail and well adding an image of a company logo to be recognized by viewers can be considered a good thing, correct?

Thank you for your time and for your attention.

immagini da controllare[edit]

Ciao Filnik

Mi è arrivata una e-mail che mi dice che alcune mie immagini non vanno bene, e precisamente le:




Per l'immagine 1 già nel 21/11/2011 ti avevo contattato per dirti che mi pareva che il file aveva tutte le informazioni essenziali, tranne la data. Comunque l'ho inserita e ho aggiunto ...reale... nella descrizione... Per le immagini 2 e 3 le ho sostituite con altre più adatte e quindi vanno cancellate...

Non capisco bene l'ultima voce


Sono andato sulla immagine 1 ma non ho so cosa mettere e dove mettere questa classificazione... Sono andato alle spiegazioni ma ci ho capito poco e niente...

Mi puoi aiutare? 16:31, 10 January 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Scfn (talk • contribs) 2012-01-10T16:31:23‎ (UTC)

De-admin message[edit]

Copyright problems about a file I uploaded, although consent was sent in due form[edit]

Dear Filnik,

You have requested copyright information about a file I uploaded, <File:Guido Haazen Selfportrait.jpg>. In addition, all kinds of warning signs and messages have been attached to that file, lots of it in jargon I do not understand, but also including a passage I do understand: “This media file does not have sufficient information on its copyright status. Unless the copyright status is provided, the file will be deleted seven days after this template was added: (1 February 2012).”

But I have done absolutely everything I thought I could do to provide WikimediaCommons with that information, and I am at my wits’ end to explain what went wrong. I will tell you the whole story of what I did.

I first corresponded with the copyright holder of the picture, and at my request he gave it to me, for the express purpose of using it in an article I am writing for the Dutch-language Wikipedia. I told him about the advantage of putting it on WikimediaCommons, I told him about the strictness of all Wikipedia projects regarding copyright, and he assured me he would cooperate. One more thing about this correspondence: we are both speakers of Dutch, so our correspondence was in Dutch.

Obviously I had his permission. But this being the first time I planned to upload a picture I did not take myself, I wrote to <permissions-commons AT wikimedia DOT org> in advance. I received a reply (from an OTRS volunteer who signed her e-mail, but whose name I must not divulge on this open-access page) which contained the following passage: “If we are provided with a clear statement that the copyright holder is releasing this content for redistribution under an allowable license, then the content may be used on Wikimedia projects. The email template at <> can be used if needed.”

So, since I had already obtained the copyright holder’s permission, I followed the procedure outlined in the section “When permission is confirmed” on <>:

(1) I uploaded the image.

(2) I had the copyright holder send his consent to <permissions-commons AT wikimedia DOT org>, using the form suggested by my OTRS correspondent. I also made sure he added the picture itself as well as the URL of the file I had uploaded. As to the additional requirements in this second point of “When permission is confirmed”, I had him summarize our correspondence mentioned above. (It would have made no sense to include it, since it is all in Dutch.). — He sent me a copy of his e-mail, so I know his consent was sent in due form.

(3) I added the OTRS pending template (between double braces, naturally) to the description page.

I do hope you can solve the problem. I am sure you understand that to have done my best to make sure there would be no copyright problems, and then to find that there are is very discouraging. Polla ta deina (talk) 11:13, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

In case you read this reply: you did fine - until the permission is received and processed the image will be undeleted. Please write further comments regarding that image to the permissions-commons email address. You can also find information here: Commons:OTRS/nl. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 20:19, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Hey Filnik, thanks for your message. As I wrote this picture was taking from a friend of mine. I announced his name under the picture as copyright owner.

Can't find the right license[edit]


My friend John Quinlan sent me a photo via e-mail to which he owns the copyright, and he encouraged me to share it as widely as possible, releasing it to the public domain. I uploaded it here but it does not have a license attached as I paged through hundreds without finding any that said "For a recent work released into the public domain."

John can be reached at to clear up the issue.

Nikbot issue[edit]

Hi. User:Russavia uploaded File:Air India Boeing 747-437 d'Silva.jpg. A few minutes after that upload, I edited the file and uploaded a new version. Nikbot toddled along a few minutes later, slapped it with {{no license}} and left me a message. Would be a whole lot more useful to leave a message for the original uploader instead. This has happened twice recently, and had I not manually copied Nikbot's message to the original uploader's talk page, they would have gotten no notice that you'd been through. Sort of like getting a traffic ticket and not finding out about it until they arrest you for non-payment. – JBarta (talk) 06:41, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Your marked this, and another Peters image for deletion, but they did not get deleted after the 7 days. Did you change your mind? -- Ssilvers (talk) 19:24, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Images are not automatically deleted after precisely 7 days. However, at some point after 7 days an admin will stumble by and if nothing has been corrected, he will most likely delete it. This can happen after 7 days, 8 days, 9 days or even longer. – JBarta (talk) 19:44, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Obvious copyright violations[edit]


I think that obvious copyright violations (images with Google/Internet/Facebook/etc. as source, CD/DVD/book covers, posters, images from agencies (Getty/etc.), promo images, logos, etc.) should not be tagged with a missing license template, as your bot does. They should be tagged as {{copyvio}}. That would greatly help the work of admins and others trying to separate the good from the bad. Thanks, Yann (talk) 14:35, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

We can be glad that the bot is still running at all (see Filnik's contribs) - at least most of the time. No license is not wrong - and at the end hopefully the files will get deleted due to that tag. --Saibo (Δ) 21:08, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

To let you know, your bot is complaining about a file that does not exist. This is confusing but (from my point of view) easy to fix. You should skip such description pages if they do not contain a file. --TMg 13:13, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi Filnik, do you know whether Nikbot warns the uploader of a file whenever it marks a file?

Hola mucho gusto, disculpa pero no sé inglés u.u, y soy semi-nuevo en commons (ya que una vez subí imagenes sin saber de los derechos de autor y eso, y obviamente fueron eliminadas).

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." Qué debo hacer? de ante-mano gracias.

Could you please explain...[edit]

You deleted File:Kurdistan caravan كوردستان.jpg, about five years ago. I see no obvious clue as to why it would be considered a copyvio.

Back when I uploaded it from flickr I left a note on the flickr contributors's description page for that image, thanking them for using a CC license, and telling people the URL where they could find the image on the commons.

It showed up on my flickr "recent activity" list, because someone else left a note on that description page.

Your deletion log entry says the image was a copyvio -- but it doesn't point to a discussion where that copyvio concern was discussed.

  • No discussions link to the image.
  • If some third party tagged it as a copyvio they did not follow the guideline of leaving me a heads-up on my talk page -- a serious problem, IMO.
  • doesn't find any versions not on flickr

I know it has been been five years, but do you remember how you came to be convinced it was a copyvio?

If there is a good explanation I will update my comment on that flickr page, explaining why it was deleted from the commons. Geo Swan (talk) 00:08, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
