About this image


Civility and politeness are
just demonstrations of
passive-aggressiveness!


Fair Warning!

Before typing anything on this page be warned that:

  • I have a sense of humour and rarely take anything seriously,
  • Am totally politically incorrect (and don't expect/want to ever become so),
  • Very blunt,
  • not too overly concerned about causing offence or hurt feelings
    (which aren't real and only ever exist in the mind of someone who wants them to be there)
  • I generally don't appreciate humourless people with a stick up their arse, especially when they try to tell me how to behave...
So you may not get the the answer you either expected or wanted.

Eco's labyrinth

You used my work to make something which you called "your" work. It is now through wkimedia commons visible that you didn't make it. It is unpolite to behave in this manner. You may take politeness for passive-aggressiveness, as you wrote on the user page, which I don't care, but you have to respect the rules. You are currently blocked. Otherwise I would have reported you. Don't call my work "yours"! --Freud (talk) 18:32, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

@Freud Sorry no, not really, he has completely redrawn this SVG. He has given your picture as ref. But you have not given any source!? Your picture is only the reference of the SVG. Here are thousands of SVG with only a raster version as source/reference. If you not give a ref, then there is also a big suspicion of copyfraud of yours. What means that many inscriptions there, is it your fantasy?? IMHO there is no "threshold of originality" of an old existing floor plan.

PS: What your are doing is more like vandalism. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  20:51, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

[personal attack removed]

Wrong. He made no ref to my pic as reference; this was done by a commons-admin. --Freud (talk) 14:15, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Incorrect. He did not list the source as his own, he listed the source as your image, right from the start. The vector image is his work, not yours. --31.6.38.75 15:12, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
He may have created the svg but it's a derivative work of someone else work so it's not 'own' work. Thus he had to state the original author and to use the same license as the original. The svg was in violation of both the GFDL and CC licenses and could have easily be deleted as copyright violation. --Denniss (talk) 15:47, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Once again incorrect. By linking to the original that is enough to stay within the CC license. The vector had the same license as the original. FtO's vector did not share a single pixel with the original therefore it is his work. The original design is Freud's work, the vector is not. FtO kept to the letter of the law, he also kept to the spirit too. He is not in breach of copyright, whereas Freud himself does not have permission for the original from the book's author. --31.6.38.75 16:12, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

The original drawing is from the book http://www.willizblog.de/?p=7642 (maybe it refers also to an older original, it is also more a like a schematically sketch). As we can see the drawing is very unsymetric and the cardinal direction are also wrong, all in all the drawing is very amateurish and not so good for Wikipedia. I'm really not sure this image can have a CC license. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  18:31, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
