Okay, I have an e-mail from TNS Records stating that they are happy for their logo to be uploaded here. When do I put the details to stop it being deleted? Mozza1979 (talk) 12:52, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Dumb robot[edit]

Your robot has just sent me a message complaining about Image:DCP 6031.JPG. It says:

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 informations about the image, it's not a valid license...

It is right, of course. The only problem is that the template in question is {{badname}}, requesting that the image be speedily deleted. Seems a bit dumb to threaten me with deletion (yes, I know its too polite to actually do that) when that is exactly what I'm asking for anyway. -- Chris j wood (talk) 18:01, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Tismana River Basin[edit]


I just received an automatic message regarding the Image:Tismana River Basin. which was tagged PD-author-w with the appropriate information. The original of the image was released to the public domain in Ro:Wiki, the link being indicated in the description of the source of the image. As it is a public domain image it is free to be altered or modified. I changed the text and the legend of the image, translating them into English. What is wrong with the tag?

Grazie. Afil (talk) 22:41, 14 October 2008 (UTC)


Look at this [1]. The bot tagged a file with the {{PD}} in nowiki tags. Maybe you should only have it tag new uploads marked with PD if there is no other valid license tag present. -Nard the Bard 02:34, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Robot is tweaking![edit]

Please take the batteries out of your bot, it has tagged a whole bucket-full of my legitimate uploads (that had proper tags) and do I have to go through each one and fix them now?!?!

Hi Face-smile.svg

i just saw you deleted that image, but the comment is a little confusing, could you provide more information please ? Was there a deletion review i could read ?

Do you know if there was any information on the image page about who/where/when that photo was taken ? Maybe if we find the author is dead for more than 70 years, the photo might be in PD ?

Image:HaydnOpus 20 Title Page.jpg[edit]

You say I need permission from the copyright owner of this image. That will be difficult since the copyright owner has been dead for over 200 years.

I think your bot found this because I put the google search address in the source. I have fixed the source so it shows the actual website from which the facsimile is taken.

Hey there Filnik, I run your script ( on my Bot on the English Wikipedia and on Commons, and I just recently updated my revision of the script to the most recent edition of it and I must say that it works wonderfully on Commons, but when ever I try to initialize the script on the En, it gives me a bunch of command line errors all saying "Error: No Licenses Allowed Provided, add that option to the code to make the script working correctly" Unfortunately the English Wikipedia has hundreds of License tags, and a whole bunch of User created License tags which makes it nearly impossible for me to compile a list of them, and I was wondering if there was a way to disable that setting in the Bots Code so that I can just run the bot where if an Image has no template on it (except the Allowed non License templates like {{information}}) like it used to do before you introduced the new regex license finder? I would use my older version, but for some reason the older version of your script that I have been using for some time doesn't seem to be able to load the Images anymore, and I believe that this is due to MediaWiki updates which is what caused me to update my version of the script in the first place. Any help you could give would be much appreciated. Thanks in Advance and All the Best :), --Mifter (talk) 14:19, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

False positives[edit]

Badges of rank pictures[edit]


I understand that is a dummy bot message. All pictures from that category have the same license. Please delete all ;)

Well. The pictures of Romanian badges of rank are assimilated as Signs of State, and are in the public domain, see "DP-Ro", "c)" paragraph.

Ciao Filnik, desolata di disturbarti, ma traducendo una voce ho visto queste immagini palesemente copiate da qui.

Image:Deaerator.png appears to be a copyright violation or advertising spam[edit]

Image:Deaerator2.png was uploaded by anonymous User:BerkeleyLab and claimed to be copyrighted by him/her. I believe it is either a copyright violation or was uploaded simply to advertise a deaerator manufacturer.

(1) There is no such user as User:BerkeleyLab either here in Commons or in the English Wikipedia. So a copy violation template cannot be posted on that user's page.

(2) It is an exact copy of a drawing from a presentation by Stork Power Services (a company in the Netherlands) who manufactures what is known as the Storq Deaerator. See the following websites and scroll down to the see their drawing which is exactly what was uploaded here as Image:Deaerator.png:

Robot error[edit]

Hi, your robot tagged Image:Karta över Södra Sandby.png as no license. I simply forgot to template the license. Maybe it would be wise to include all the template names in the robot, and give a list of those so you don't tag people incorrectly. I got angry when I got the no license template, wonder how a complete newbie would react... If your robot could detect the template text instead of the {} letters, and you could go through those that have the text without the template, you could probably get less angry messages from newbies, and less scared away newbies because some stupid robot is templating them. /grillo (talk) 21:55, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

It would be nice if you could at least acknowledge that you read this page... If you don't answer to concerns about your robot's actions, then maybe you shouldn't run a bot. /grillo (talk) 12:52, 21 December 2008 (UTC)


This file, which you say may pose a problem, is merely a cropped corrected version of an existing file named 'Cotedazur.png' (because the parameters of the existing image did not accord with the title), and I would have stated a licence for the corrected image if I had found one on the existing file - but the template I added is all I could find on the existing file. This presumably means that 'Cotedazur.png' is therefor also a problem, in that it gives no licence. What happens now? --BHJ (talk) 17:34, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Moïen, I make corrections for the license --Bernard Piette (talk) 09:23, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Public domain license[edit]

Two files I uploaded

are in the public domain and appear to fall under {{PD-US-1996}} The license is based on the following example and precedent:

which says:

This image was created in Hungary and is now in the public domain because its term of copyright has expired. According to Hungarian copyright law, photographs which do not enjoy copyright protection as scientific or artistic works enter the public domain after 15 years counted from the end of the calendar year in which they were first published.

Your bot entry says the PD template is not correctly filled out. I am unfamiliar with the template requirements. Can you please clarify? -- Btphelps (talk) 20:26, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Innocent victim of the September 2008 image loss[edit]

Hi Filnik. The image File:Danish-Navy-OF6.gif was lost or corrupted due to the September 2008 image loss bug. The image was then restored [7] 15 December 2008. It was a copy that was deleted on the Danish Wikipedia because it was transfered to commons February 2007. This image has been tagged with {{Military-Insignia|Danish Navy}} stating that images uploaded after 8 May 2007 will be deleted. This image was uploaded before 8 May 2007 and is therefore still correct. Your Filbot has treated the restoration as a new-upload. Please reprogramme it to treat this image as an innocent victim of the September 2008 image loss bug. As I'll be on christmas holiday I've removed the {{no license|month=December|day=15|year=2008}} tag because some automatic deletion could occur. --Necessary Evil (talk) 19:18, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

There is a link at the bottom of each mediafile's page, "Upload an other version" or similar. Overwriting is the way to repair such without needing an admin's help. Besides, the real problem of this file is the missing permission/copyright status.

Image File:Sir Frederick Currie[edit]

This image is in the public domain. The description records that it was created in 1858.

The copyright holder - the subject of the portrait - Sir Frederick Currie - died in 1875
The author, ie the photographer, created the work in 1858 - 150 years ago
Several prints of the photograph were made for Currie family members, including my forbears.
The photographer firm, T Fall, is no longer in existence.

I couldn't find a suitable slot on the licence page - It's not my own work; I don't know who Flickr is; It's likely that the author died more than 70 years ago, but I don't know that for a fact - Nothing seemed to fit.

How do I amend the information I uploaded to show this additional data? There is no "edit tag" on File:Sir Frederick Currie.jpg Apuldram (talk) 12:57, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

I make a lot of photos 1998 from Triumph cars and today I will use this photos in an Wikipedia article about Triumph. Thanks for your help. --FDS2 (talk) 13:08, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

File:Circle Area-mk.svg[edit]

Hello. I just got a "no tag" warning message from your Filbot (here) about my translated File:Circle Area-mk.svg. Upon rechecking however, I didn't find any irregularities in my description, licensing, sourcing or attribution. Can you please see and tell me what is it more precisely that is missing on the file description and how I may amend that? Regards --B. Jankuloski (talk) 20:34, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Template message error[edit]

Hello. According to the message left on my talk page by your bot, it is its own master, so you might want to change that. :) Also, if you're around and File:File-Crushing by elephant.ogg hasn't been deleted yet, would you please do it? I Copied the File: into the file name when trying to upload a new version of File:Crushing by elephant.ogg, so it went to the wrong title. Thanks. – wodup – 04:03, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Bot issue: uploader was not informed[edit]

In this bot edit (diff) the original uploader, Photohound (talk contribs), was not informed of the speedy deletion tag.

I expect that is because the derivative version was uploaded by a different user. (Filbot correctly notified User:JMV290, but that user is not able to do anything except ask the original author to add a license tag: see Commons:Help_desk#Lacking_a_copyright.)

Could you update the bot code to inform both uploaders in future, please?

--InfantGorilla (talk) 06:32, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Addition to bot?[edit]

Hey there, got a message from Filbot regarding it detecting an unlicensed upload, though it was just an incorrectly named image that I was asking to have speedied. I'm wondering if it would be possible for the bot to detect templates such as {{bad name}}, {{duplicate}} and similar speedy deletion templates, to avoid those kinds of messages. No big deal of course, just a thought. Cheers! -- Huntster T@C 06:43, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Collage Berlino[edit]

Ciao! Scusami se ti disturbo, ma volevo chiederti se potevi risolvermi un problema! Nella pagina di discussione di Berlino [9] è saltata fuori l'idea di creare come immagine del template, una sorta di collage come quello che c'è sulle pagine di Londra [10] e di New York [11]. Ho provato a crearne uno, ma mi sono trovato in difficoltà riguardo alla licenza da attribuirgli. Le foto che ho inserito sono queste: [12] [13] [14] [15]. Ho provato a caricare il collage come "Opera derivata da un file di commons" ma il programma mi dice che le licenze sono incompatibili! Per caso sai dirmi cosa posso fare? Grazie mille... --Zuffe (talk) 16:15, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Southfrieze pcture[edit]

Hi, I added this Southfrieze picture. I took it from the English Wikipedia. It was used in an article about the Oakland California Temple. I thought, if it is free there, it should be free here too.

Problem with Image:MAGIC Telescopes.jpg?[edit]

Hello Filnik, your Filbot has detected a problem with my image Image:MAGIC Telescopes.jpg. Note that this image has been published under both the GNU and the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 license. So where is the problem? Thanks. --Vesta (talk) 11:22, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Filnik[edit]

Da du auf deiner Nutzerseite DE-2 stehen hast, bin ich so frei und schreibe dir auf Deutsch.

Es passiert regelmaßig, das einer deiner Bots bei Seiten die von GerWsUpload hochgeladen werden, das Fehlen von informationen bemängelt (oftmals mehrere hundert Seiten). Da wir alle Bücheruploads mit eigenen Templates machen, sind dort sowohl die Kategorien als auch nötigen Lizenzinformationen vorhanden. Villeicht findest du eine Möglichkeit deinen Bot toleranter zu machen. In diesen Templates findest du immer den Aufruf von DE Wikisource Book in den Kategorien und DE Wikisource Image in den einzelnen Seiten eines Buches.

Wie du an dem Bild File:Fr Figur Orsay.jpg sehen kannst, waren auch dort alle Information vorhanden, da ich das template 'Joergens.mi/licence eingesetzt habe, welches die Lizenzsachen eindeutig regelt.

Hi there!

I dont know, but I think I have given the relevant information from the recent contributions [21].

Filbot for transfering images[edit]

I have seen that Filbot transferred File:Coppia_di_navi_davanti_al_Vesuvio.jpg. As the file did not have a link to a category I tried to make a link. A problem was that the description "Autore foto: Roberto De Martino" did not help me. I tried to find the image back in the Italian Wikipedia without succes. My experience with [[22]] is that indeed sometimes a description as in this case is automatically filled in, but often on the page itself there is a good description with the photo. That is what I use then and making at the same time a link to a category. Further there is an "original upload log" see for example File:Tizianoferroconcerto2.JPG. Is it possible for your bot that it gives also such an original upload log? Regards, Wouter (talk) 20:49, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Not Deprecated License[edit]

It has been found that Image:Peacocke-Advertisement.jpg has a valid free license tag {PD-old} which describes the rights of the image correctly. It was published in 1847, thus it should not be deleted! Thanks for your consideration. This is a manual message by-Marcus334 (talk) 17:56, 8 March 2009 (UTC). ----

I am still very new to commons and did not realise there was a way to Speedily delete images like Wikipedia.

I do not understand why do I have to show a license of a public domain Stemma.

I think a City stemma is a public domain image, there is not license and nobody have to ask to no one to use an stemma. So I don't understand what information do you need of the creator of an image that is of a public domain.

I need, if there is not a problem, an explanation about why do anybody needs to put a license of a city stemma, or a country flag or a national symbol of public domain.

I am sure that you know the answer,

kind of regards.

Public domain works[edit]

Images marked with the templates PD-Art and PD-old are presumably pubic domain. It is my impression that Wikimedia Commons is not entitled to apply a license of any sort to such works. If that is indeed the case, then perhaps your Bot needs to include that information in its message, or add it prominently to pages which discuss which licenses shoud be used. (Your bot marked some public domain images I had uploaded as needing a license. I think this may be because I put the template on the wrong part of the page, but I am not sure.) Robert.Allen (talk) 04:49, 16 June 2009 (UTC)


It should not be deleted. It´s under the same license as the Stahlhelm.svg logo in the german Wikipedia, but 1. this license doesn´t exist here and 2. in stupid Commons it´s deleted immidiately after uploading and I can´t ask someone for help.

I´ve thought here in Commons it would be easier. But it´s more difficult and the people who find pics which are without license delete them instead of ask the uploader for license. Very funny... --Bessawissa94 (talk) 11:07, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Ich verstehe nicht, warum das Bild gelöscht werden soll. Es hat die thoretisch gleiche Lizenz wie das Bild Datei:Jungstahlhelm.svg auf der deutschen Wikipedia. Was kann ich aber dafür, wenn´s hier diese Lizenzen nicht gibt? Ich habe überall gefragt, und trotzdem will der Nikbot das Ding löschen. Wenn es keine passenden Lizenzen auf Commons gibt, dann bringt das hier nichts. Dann meinentwegen bitte löschen.
