Thanks for giving me the advertisement of the unlicensed file. I think that now it's correct. I had some problems uploading that photo =D. Thanks and see you, Flag of Argentina.svg Agustín Any question? es-wiki 22:34, 12 July 2009 (UTC)


I took the picture myself; last year on holiday. What kind of licence do you want me to place there since this is my very own work ? I think I don't understand ... (Jagna (talk) 19:32, 14 July 2009 (UTC))

Wrong place for licence[edit]

Probably there is an error in uplod software, wich put info about licence under description box?--antosh (talk) 08:10, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Totally agree, but there seems to be an up-to-now unsolved technical problem. The upload mask was designed by user:Lupo, I think. [w.] 04:05, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Problems with images[edit]

My error is due to the fact that the upload software is a shit. You have to wait three hours to copy a picture there. And when it was copied or is not visible, or the text isn't copied. Do something with this and don't accuse me because I have only good intentions. If you delete my images without to ask, then I leave your project.

And two other things: where is the signature (it should be below the button Save page, I don't see it) and the second, why you don't delete two duplicates I asked to be removed two days ago. Nobody takes care to delete them, but you want to remove my picture because the upload software don't upload a license, only the picture. Nice of you. Signature: Cezarika1

Change the category names of architercture în architecture[edit]

Can you help me by changing the category name of in and subcategories associated. Thanks. --Cezarika1 (talk) 04:48, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Please don't mark images that just have been cropped. Thanks, --Flominator (talk) 18:10, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Flominator, Did you remove the cc-by-sa-3.0 tag? It appears from revision history Nikbot tagged the image correctly. --InfantGorilla (talk) 21:03, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Whoops! Thx! --Flominator (talk) 08:06, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Really a Deprecated License?[edit]

Hie, I uploaded this in commons [1]. What is wrong with that?[2]? Thanks.--Pastorals2007 (talk) 08:04, 2 August 2009 (UTC)


Ciao Filnik, ho un piccolo problema con le immagini che ho caricato. Sono immagini libere non create da me ma bensì da società sparse per il mondo. Queste immagini possono essere utilizzate liberamente solo se rapprensentano una "spiegazione del significato" come nel mio caso. Cosa devo fare per farle rimanere in Wikipedia ?


Improving on text of "Template:No tag message whitetemplate"[edit]

Hi, I suggest to improve on German version as follows:

Dieser bot [might be replaced by filbot?] findet ein Problem mit der Beschreibung oder der Lizenzierung dieses Bildes. Du hast wahrscheinlich eine Vorlage mit Informationen über das Bild eingebunden, aber keine gültige Lizenz angegeben.
Bitte füge der Bildbeschreibungsseite eine der erlaubten Lizenzen hinzu, indem Du die Seite bearbeitest. Diese Seite kann Dir weiterhelfen. Danke.
  • Hinweis: Das Hochladen einer neuen Version eines Bildes ändert die Bildbeschreibung nicht, du musst die Beschreibungsseite ggf. hinterher überarbeiten.

  1. No need for "strengthened" "nur" by bold type. The word is completely useless in this context.
  2. No bot can find out whether information given in the template is useful for someone, or not. This additional (pseudo-) "information" is irrelevant, therefore confusing.
  3. K.I.S.: Of course, nobody who would be willing to DONATE a few media files would like to read ALL_THAT_F***ING_STUFF which is linked -- that would mean that he/she would have to "study" wikipedia/wikimedia before being allowed to donate! Imagine a German en~0-1 speaker clicking "Vorlage". I-for-myself would probably turn my PC off, in such case. Similar when clicking "Lizenz" and arriving at a huge page (no German version available) which describes all that bloody history of licenses, whilst the newbie would in 95% just need Commons:Choosing a license#Common_free_licenses, or slightly more.
    Clicking "this page will help you" [it will not, it might, and only in case the newbie would be able to read it] would bring you to a template which broadly describes how to apply the "incomplete license" tag.
Off-topic: Same applies when clicking "Babel" from the "welcome" template. I would propose to create a couple of Newbie:Licenses, Newbie:Babelbox (of major importance!) and similar. The welcome-template should be redesigned to put the "Babel"-thing on a very prominent place -- I recently was contacted by a ca=N speaker (and regular contributor to wikimedia) with low-level English, whose major problem for several months was that he did not communicate his language abilities, because that "Babel" link was too confusing.

-- Best, [w.] 05:39, 6 August 2009 (UTC) PS: I would provide an improved layout of the "welcome" template on request. Question is, where to talk about such -- I'm uncertain whether COM:VP is the best place. --[w.] 05:46, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

no license-tag without Filebot[edit]

Maybe you can help here Template_talk:No_license#And_nothing_happens--Avron (talk) 18:24, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Nikbot not giving me a message[edit]

Just curious, is Nikbot supposed to tell me when it's tagged one of my files? I uploaded File:Beaver Valley Christian Fellowship.jpg and tagged it with PD-self, but due to a coding error on my part, it didn't appear that it had any license (see here as I uploaded it), so Nikbot reasonably tagged it. However, I'm surprised that I didn't receive a notification; if this isn't standard, would you please tell the bot to notify uploaders? Nyttend (talk) 20:31, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

A new can of worms- Marsden illustrations[edit]

I am on vacation and have limited internet access for the next 14 days (* Seven days is too short a period to cope with the European Holiday system *) Your useful bot left me a message-- Deutsch | English | Italiano | മലയാളം | Português | +/−

It has been found that Image:Roberts loom-marsden left.png has a deprecated license tag. Please choose a new free license tag which describes the rights of the image correctly otherwise it will be deleted!Thanks for your consideration. This is an automatic message by Nikbot.--Filnik 14:40, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

In my opinion a graphic by an unknown author published in the UK is clean. Which licence does the bot now want? If I knew I could change it in 15 days - but if it is as simple as that could the bot do the task automatically (* Second Worm *).

Following the link, to the description of UK ordinary copyright- I am directed to a flowchart that gives instruction on which copyright tag to use. (9.69.4 Duration of Copyright (UK))It uses data from Chris Padfield (or similar name) work. It is a clear flowchart- I wrote it. (* Third worm- This flowchart has been deleted- because some of the wording I used to describe UK copyright was also used in his work!)

All in all, a can of worms. If you would like to investigate some of the images- and help me by retagging them so you bot ( * who normally does an excellent job *) is happy. I have not a good enough connexion here. The links from the licence page needs to be edited out or the page I wrote reinstated- I have no desire to become an admin so haved the necessary tools or contacts. ClemRutter (talk) 15:45, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Nikbot mistake[edit]

this one should probably not have been tagged. --Eusebius (talk) 09:49, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−

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").

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.

Hi, first of all i'm new to wikipedia and wikimedia so sorry about my ignorance. I uploaded this photo (File:C510_topic_Energetic_Red_MX.png), i took it from the sony ericsson website and put the licence. it is ok? the nikbot says that the information is wrong, how can i put it correctly?

BTW, i'm elJOjo

File:100 złotych 1932 r. AWERS.jpg[edit]

I simply added a scanned jpg image of a clean pre-war banknote besides the dirty, damaged PNG-image. I used the {{PD-Polish-Symbol}} like the previous image uploader. What is wrong? What shall I do? Szczebrzeszynski (talk) 07:03, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Please compare my and previous images to understand the problem. It's nothing new, only improved image quality. Szczebrzeszynski (talk) 07:08, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

"Not a valid license"[edit]

I was told that the page for File:Team-Associated-SC8-Kit.jpg does not have a valid license. I looked at the license page and used the acronym on the page: CC-BY. That is the correct license. It was created by the company I work for and pulled from my own desktop computer. If I have misunderstood Nikbot, please be more specific about which line should be changed. I've spent an hour on the site trying to understand how to use it and it is not easy. Thanks. AssociatedElectricsInc (talk) 07:45, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi Filnik, Nikbot sent me a message about a missing license for the File:Soviet_stamp_1951.jpg. I now added the license. Can I ignore (or delete?) the warning on the page? Thx for your answer, --Philato (talk) 16:35, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Italian lire coins[edit]

Hi Filnik, Nikbot sent me a message about licences. It suggests me to use a free licence, and I think the one I've chosen it's correct: Template:-PD-Italy-, which is for non-artistic Italian photos, and these kind of coins are not artistic, so which is the problem? What do you suggest to me? Kind regards--Manu (talk) 16:08, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

I've edited again, and I've chosen Template:-Money-EU- tag: "its use is permitted by ECB, "as long as reproductions in advertising or illustrations cannot be mistaken for genuine banknotes"[1] and [for coins] "for photographs, drawings, paintings [...] etc." Do you agree? --Manu (talk) 16:39, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

why I cannot upload a new version of the same image? I get always the answer that the image with this name exists. --Cezarika1 (talk) 04:15, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Good night Filnik! Thank you for your message, I was finding someone who could help me with that file...

She is under free license, the author says that at less (he lives in Finland), the author left that under free license, but the license wich he put is "Authority" that says how the flag is a national symbol, it is free

But i nothing know about licenses, and i dont know how put the correct license

I have left an annonce in the Village pump, ¿know you how help me?

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 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.

This message was added automatically by Nikbot, if you need some help about it, ask its master (Filnik) or go to the Commons:Help desk. --Filnik 07:20, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi! Nikbot keeps telling my bot about deprecated license tags. As I am usually not the one uploading thorugh it, and I usually don't check that page, there is little point in that. Better to inform the "transferer" or, better, the uploader in the original wiki - all information is on the image description pages. Also, Nikbot tags files like this, which have both {{PD}} and {{PD-old}}, as not having sufficient license information. That is wrong - they do have PD-old, they just have a superfluous PD template as well. Removing the latter when the former is present would be much more helpful than the current behaviour. Cheers! --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:36, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Template:No license[edit]

I suggest harmonization of Template:No license with Template:No source since and Template:No permission since. Including to finaly autotranslate the template as it is still not. Any objections from your side? --Martin H. (talk) 22:49, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

I see that you are not active at the moment. Your bot is extremly important so I will wait for your answer. The question is: will moving "Template:No license" to "Template:No license since" break the bot or uses he {{subst:nld}}? --Martin H. (talk) 04:41, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi Filnik! You left a message on my talk page concerning File:TwilightLength-hu.svg. I have just seen it. :-) I don't understand the problem.

Bináris (talk) 21:33, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Filnik[edit]

Something may be going wrong about nikbot.

These two files were correctly marked by the bot as without licence and deleted lateron. File:FR-HBF 030.jpg 2009-11-07T15:58:52 Nikbot (Diskussion | Beiträge | Sperren) K (283 Bytes) (Bot: Marking newly uploaded untagged file) (rückgängig) File:FR-HBF 031.jpg 11-07T13:39:07 Nikbot (Diskussion | Beiträge | Sperren) K (283 Bytes) (Bot: Marking newly uploaded untagged file)

The date of marking can be seen. The only thing I'm missig is a notification about that process. When you look at the history of my discussion page there is no notification. The last notification by nikbot is from 2009-10-09 20:21:34. I got the information about the deletion by commonsdelinker, who removed the reference to the file from german WP.

can you fix it?.

Unhelpful bot message...[edit]

Hi. I've just received a message from your bot regarding File:Moon.Archimedes.jpg, a file I transferred from en.wp last night, saying that it "has a deprecated license tag" and that it will be deleted unless a new license is chosen. What exactly is wrong with the current license on the page? Why has the license tag been deprecated? Why am I being (indirectly) linked to a page that given me copyright information for every single possible country? The message doesn't give any of this information when rendering its judgement ("It has been found that..."). Help? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 10:23, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

  • The problems are: 1) it's not my image so I can't relicense it, 2) I have yet to see anything that actually says that the license is deprecated, or why. Mike Peel (talk) 13:29, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
    • I still don't understand: why is the license of this image a problem? I now see that template page says that it has been deprecated (but for some reason this isn't displayed on the actual template). However, these is no information on why, or discussion about it, that I can see. I also note that a number of images use this template, apparently without a problem.
    • I am very worried by your bot message, which does not provide any useful information. Please could you fix it so that it gives more information in this specific case (and any other cases where it provides a similar lack of information)? I've been around Commons for over 3 years, and I can't understand this problem; a newbie stands absolutely no chance. If you don't understand why this is important, read the recent news coverage about Wikipedia...
    • Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 15:39, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Filnik:[edit]

Hello, Filnik:

Now fix the license of the image that I carried here on Commons, just sent this message to see if you're right.

"No known copyright restrictions"[edit]

Your bot does not recognize the license {{Flickr-no known copyright restrictions}} and has tagged a TON of my images... this is incorrect behavior. — raeky (talk | edits) 11:28, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Err maybe not a license template, but it's how they was tagged by Flinfo upload tool with the license. It's a public domain disclosure... — raeky (talk | edits) 11:29, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
This was caused by an edit by Multichill of the template, see Template talk:Flickr-no known copyright restrictions. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 12:54, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, also before the template doesn't stated the copyright, too general. I approve Multichill's edit and the images tagged need to be fixed. --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 13:03, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
I copied your answer on my page here to keep the discussion tractable for others. I would ask you to stop your bot until there is consensus. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 13:10, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Ok, no problem. The bot is still running but only the new images uploaded with that template will be tagged, not the old ones. --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 13:25, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 13:26, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Please let me know when you decide what to do.. I can also write a bot to revert the changes, but I would suggest to continue like that because the template it's clearly not a license template. --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 13:29, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
I cannot decide anything. But realistically, I hope that few admins would be willing to delete these images a week from now, so it is probably best to revert. There is no copyright problem, this is as good as license. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 13:34, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
It should be a license template, the images are in the PD and thats what it says. The "this isn't a license template" was added as the result of the deletion request a year ago. Back then there was a couple museums participating in Flickr's new commons thing, now many more are there. It needs revised to be a full license template now. — raeky (talk | edits) 13:37, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Ok, so discuss about it and let me know! :-) --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 13:41, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
HELLO. I also was really annoyed by this little bot mucking up my legitmate uploads. Marking them with speedy delete and what not, I don't have time to retag all the ones that it messed with. Do something. Please. (I even put comments on the wrong page about this annoying little 5$%#W$W# and looked like a doofus.) Anyway, please fix the situation. (Clarification: it marked tons of my OLD ones with speedy delete and thats annoying!! Cant that be fixed automatically since it was messed up automatically??!?!)

Imperatrice Eugenia[edit]

Ciao! Scusa il disturbo. Vengo dal progetto Wikipedia dove fondamentalmente mi occupo di pagine dedicate alle regine della storia. Ho riscontrato due errori in due immagini che ritengo debbano essere rinominate. Una è questa (la dama fotografata è certamente Eugénie de Montijo e non Eugenie Leichtenberg, l'altra foto che ho messo come esempio nella motivazione fa fede perché viene dallo stesso servizio fotografico). L'altra immagine è questa: sono andato a ricontrollare sulla wikipedia polacca nella pagina dell'imperatrice Eugenia di Francia. La foto fin dall'inizio ha sempre presentato la dicitura corretta che la indica come Carola Wasa e il file originariamente caricato si chiamava Vasa007. Evidentemente quando l'hanno ricaricata su commons gli hanno erroneamente dato il nome dell'imperatrice Eugenia (anche se nelle categorie sono correttamente indicate gli anni di nascita e morte di Carola di Vasa e l'appartenenza alla casata di Oldenburg e di Sassonia). Se potessi rinominarle, mi faresti un grande piacere! (P.S. Buone feste!)--Kaho Mitsuki (Dis-moi) 22:20, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Re File:BunsenPeakFromBlackTailDeer2009.jpg[edit]

Your bot was correct and I failed to add the PD-Self license when I uploaded. However, whenever I try to edit a Commons file using the Edit this page link, all I get is the php file opening in Notepad. The only way I can edit a Commons file is via an Edit link on the side. This particular file does not display one because there is no license section yet. This file should be licensed PD-SELF. Could you please add for me? Thanks--Mike Cline (talk) 21:53, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

There are two problems with this photo: 1. You didn't give a license. 2. You can't give a proper license because the user who uploaded the picture to Flickr states that he is not the original author of this photo (see the description). Assuming that this photo was released under CC-by-sa/2.0 the Flickr user is not in compliance with the license's attribution clause and neither were you when you uploaded the photo. See Commons:Upload/Unknown author or license and Commons:Flickr files for further information. Cheers --AT (talk) 20:49, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Dear Filnik

It's true that some required information about this file is missing, but I thought that once it was accepted in English Wikipedia, it would be automatically accepted in commons. --Maher27777 (talk) 22:10, 27 March 2010 (UTC)


hi Filnik ,

Far all the justification on various pages, and fro reasons that escape me I'm requesting you to look at 2 two up loaded photos that I took on the Knockdrin castle site. I understand very quickly.... However one has to be exhaustively pragmatic, clear, and take the pains to render the error visible, otherwise I may misunderstand...badly...

IF it's true that some required information about this file is missing, (for the different reasons identified right left and centre in wikipedia, who am I to argue) I no longer can see clearly the wood from the trees, therefore, please that my contributions are again accepted in commons. --User:Gavigan --

Sphynge (talk) 14:22, 13 April 2010 (UTC)


I just got a message from your BOT saying that the licensing for several pictures I uploaded is incorrect. I thought I had followed the instructions correctly. If you click on the Permission "?" it says the following:

"If you know that your file falls under a specialized copyright rule not covered by the licenses mentioned in the "License" drop-down menu below, you may also write a copyright tag directly in this field instead of choosing a license below."

I thought i had done the instructions shown in bold so i added Cc-by-3.0-ec on the permission box for all pictures. Essentially, they are all licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Ecuador as you can see in the following link Creative Commons 3.0 Ecuador.

I am new to wikipedia and would not want to lose all my hardwork uploading pictures so I please ask you to help me correct this issue. I appreciate it. You can go to my discussion page and see all the images I received messages for! Thank you in advance!

To be deleted[edit]

Hello Filnik and thanks for the welcome message. The file in question: Egyptian Fayoumi at show cropped.jpg came up in error, should have been another, this one is not cropped. I tried to clear the page but that was against the rules. Please delete. Yet I don't know wy license information wasn't added, it was uploaded with the 'deriative from commons' option. Also the bot welcome message is adressed to user "Ancientkingdom" though it appears on my talkpage. That would have something to do with this username being my username on english Wikipedia but as far as I can see I'm always signed in to commons with my SUL /Mercurial name and just about never on EnWiki.

bad name[edit]


I'm sure your bot is very useful -- I sometimes forget the licence, so I know it is. However, in the case of File:Papier log log.svg, I purposedly removed the description to place a template:Bad name. It could be a good idea to teach your bot to recognise the various speed deletion templates and avoid useless messages.

Anyway, thanks for your work.
