Hi GeorgHH. I can't understand the reason for deletion. It was tagged that the photo was created at 1924, which is more than 70 years ago, so it is O'K for use. Thank you for your attention. Shmuliko 06:59, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

PD-Old says life of the author plus 70 years, not publication 70 years ago! So please state the name of the author and the date of his death. --GeorgHH 10:37, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Polyurethan.png[edit]

Hi Georg,

I created this image myself and just forgot to mark it with "PD-Self". Sorry for the trouble, my mistake. Grüße aus AC in die Freie Hansestadt, --GattoVerde 15:31, 18 March 2007 (UTC).


is it ok now? --Jacklab72 16:21, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Image:Sudan one pound note 2007.png[edit]

Hi, you can erase this page, I was too quick to add it (and forgot that the faire-use is not allowed here). Don't forget to tell me when you do it, in order to report the change on the french Wikinews. See you. Grimlock 08:37, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Ok or not?[edit]

Hi, I've put the licences with the photographs. I thought that it was ok to mention the source (English Wikipedia) because the license already stood there. I hope that everything is ok now, and the next time I'll always put the license with the photograph. JojoParis 21:44, 20 March 2007 (UTC)


Ich bin ja mal gespannt, wie viele Bilder Sie von mir noch löschen wollen. Es wäre nett, wenn Sie mir erklären könnten, was ich zu tun habe, damit sie wieder über eine korrekte Lizenz verfügen. Die von Ihnen ausgesuchten Bilder habe ich schließlich selbst gemacht. Dabei fände ich es schön, wenn Sie mir sagen könnten, wie ich neue Versionen von einem Bild hochladen kann. Ich bitte um eine Antwort
MfG Andreasdziewior 07:59, 21 March 2007 (UTC).

Zu jedem Bild muss eine konkrete Lizenz wie zum Beispiel {{PD-Self}} angegeben werden (so wie du es nun bei Image:Speciosa.JPG gemacht hast), nur die Angabe eigene Aufnahme oder own work reicht leider nicht.
Zum hochladen einer neuen Version klickst du einfach den link Eine neue Version dieser Datei hochladen, dieser ist im Abschnitt Dateiversionen zu finden.
PS: Das markieren der Bilder und die Benachrichtigung sind bitte nicht als "Freude am löschen" zu verstehen, vielmehr geht es darum den Uploader auf fehlende oder falsche Angaben aufmerksam zu machen, die eine Verwendung seines Bildes nicht zulassen würden. --GeorgHH 21:28, 21 March 2007 (UTC)


Please keep my upload image of a tri-coloured Brittany. I am the photographer and I am the source and I am the author. I thought that I typed that well enough in the upload steps. Please hurry as not to lose the file and have to redo it. Please contact me if there is anything more that I can do. Marycontrary 15:01, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Added licenses[edit]

Hi! I have added the licenses for:

  • Image:Testudo_graeca_50_years_old_2_male.jpg
  • Image:Testudo horsfieldii rustamovi.jpg
  • Image:Testudo_werneri.jpg

Bevorstehende Löschung von Image:Matildabethamedwards.jpg[edit]

Lieber GeorgHH, zur Klärung der Lizenz von Image:Matildabethamedwards.jpg habe ich eine E-Mail an gesendet, siehe Image_talk:Matildabethamedwards.jpg.--GrafZahl 09:02, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Hallo GrafZahl, das ist eine gute Idee. Ich habe Benutzer Dedden auf noch eine Nachricht hinterlassen, so das er eventuell trotzdem noch die Quelle und Lizenz nachtragen kann. --GeorgHH 10:32, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Jericho from Perú[edit]

Hi Sir I´m from Perú Whit this photo I haven't violated any law, because The autor clearly says "The publication of this photo is permited, but you should indicate the origin of the photo" and I did it. All the people who will see this photo, they will know the true origin of the image THE IMAGE BELONGS TO THE AUTHOR, and He wants that all the people know that, In my case I haven´t denied this, NEVER.

Thank you

Jericho1 02:44, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello, you didn't provide a link to the image source and the copyright text, so we can't verify your licence statement. --GeorgHH 11:00, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Tagging uploaded images[edit]

I created the image Condición-acción_ejemplo.jpg and stated that by writing "own work". I do not understand what else is required (the explanations given in the upload page are rather unclear) so that the image is released to the public domain and how to do it. The licensing page is so lengthty that I imagine it would take a full day to understand it completely, time which I am not willing to spend. If you tell me what to do to release my image to the public domain, I will do it, otherwise, erase the image. Thanks. Csoliverez, February 29, 2007.

For own created images which are PD, add {{PD-Self}} to the image description. --GeorgHH 17:23, 29 March 2007 (UTC)


Anscheinend habe ich vergessen, die Copyright-Angabe für eigenes Foto beizufügen. Bild wird aber am besten gelöscht (ich weiß nicht, wie das geht). Ich hatte bei den deutschen Wikipediaeinträgen zur Color Line und Color Fantasy ein entsprechendes Bild vermisst und deswegen eins eingestellt. Als ich aber den Link zum Bild dort einfügte, kam ein anderes, offenbar nicht aus Commons, sondern aus dem deutschen Wikipedia unter dem gleichen Namen. Dann ist mein Bild also überflüssig. Jelly 17:11, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, ich habe das Bild als Image:Color Fantasy 02.jpg neu hochgeladen und unter GFDL lizenziert. --GeorgHH 17:38, 30 March 2007 (UTC)


I apologize for the mistakes I have made on wikimedia commons. I have a question though. I have seen pictures of different people that are limited licencing and they have not been deleted. Why was mine? Finally, I uploaded a picture of Ayiesha woods that was a promo shot. Other musicians promoshots were not deleted why was mine? The Random Editor

Hello, it is a lot of work to check all excisting and newly uploaded files for copyright violations or incomplete information. The administrators cant find all problem files at the same time, be sure that the others will be detected later too. --GeorgHH 09:20, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

So am I correct in assuming that promoshots are not allowed?

The Random Editor 21:44, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Dear GeorgHH: I've already put the original source of the picture, in the FBI site. Regards, --Roblespepe 18:33, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your help, Roblespepe. --GeorgHH 19:35, 2 April 2007 (UTC)


Hallo Georg, ich hoffe du kannst uns weiterhelfen. Wir haben das Bild Image:Nh mlm kim wilde.jpg hochgeladen, welches leider wegen fehlender Copyrightangaben gelöscht wurde. Kann man das löschen rückgängig machen, und wir ergänzen den Hinweis zum Copyright? Das Foto wurde von uns gemacht, wir sind daher Rechteinhaber. Gruß aus Hamburg, 14:21, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, ich habe das Bild wiederhergestellt. Um Missverständnissen vorzubeugen bitte eine konkrete Lizenz angeben, und wenn möglich auf eurer Benutzerseite eine kurze allgemeine Erklärung wer ihr seid, bzw. das ihr Bilder im Namen der Firma veröffentlichen dürft. Danke. --GeorgHH 14:34, 2 April 2007 (UTC)
Hallo, vielen Dank. Könntest du mal schauen ob wir das mit dem Copyright-Tag richtig gemacht haben? Ich habe PD-self eingefügt. Wir arbeiten uns hier gerade erst rein, daher sind wir noch etwas grundverwirrt. Ich bitte das zu entschuldigen. Gruß und Danke, 11:47, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Ja, ist alles in Ordnung. Danke. --GeorgHH 16:44, 3 April 2007 (UTC)


I fixed problem. Sorry i don`t speak english well.--Fica Blok38 14:15, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Gwen Stefani images[edit]

For some reason, the person who added the {{PermissionOTRS}} for the images only added it to some of the images. Should I add the other templates myself, e-mail permissions again, or ask Drini to add the template to the other images? ShadowHalo 12:25, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, if the permission is valid for the images i have marked, then you can copy the permission tag to the images by yourself. --GeorgHH 12:32, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Why was File:Tikal (sonic).jpg deleted?[edit]

Hi there. I was navigating in the article I created and noticied that an image was missing. Searching here and there I found out that you deleted it [1]. Well, maybe I should log in more times to check my files, but the tag was put only two days ago, and now the file is gone. As the discuss page is now gone, would you please explain to me why a drawing made by me is a copyvio? You can reach-me by my discuss page (I'll try to check it more from now on) or by my e-mail (kahless at bol dot com dot br. Best regards Rafael

Ok, I saw that requirements here in commons are different from those on Portuguese Wikipedia. Derivative Works, I see. But, well, I still would like to see what was in that discuss page anyway.
Hello Rafael, it was no entry on talk page for this image. The file was speedy deleted by an admin. Clear copyvios, "fair use" or non-commercial images can speedy deleted on commons without dicussion, see Commons:Deletion_guidelines#General_procedure (2. Speedy deletion). Have a nice day. --GeorgHH 09:48, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

Mozart Requiem[edit]

Dear George, I do not understand your query about the files et al. The music is by Mozart and therefore PD, I selected the examples (and voices) and typed them in myself. What kind of copyright problem do you see? -- 20:22, 7 April 2007 (UTC) Sorry, --Mautpreller 20:24, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Mautpreller, wenn das Bild dein Werk ist dann füge noch einen Lizenzbaustein ein, beispielsweise {{PD-self}} oder {{Cc-by-sa-2.5}}. Danke. --GeorgHH 20:31, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
Wie mach ich das? Ja, es ist mein Werk, ebenso wie alle anderen (Mozart selbst ist eh PD, die Auswahl der Stimmen und der Noten sowie das Erstellen des Bildes hab sämtlich ich gemacht). Meinetwegen gern Public Domain. Gibt es eine Anleitung, wie und wohin der Baustein muss? --Mautpreller 20:34, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
Ich sehe gerade, du hast es selbst hinbekommen... Einen schönen abend noch. --GeorgHH 20:38, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
Fein, offenbar ist es in Ordnung so. Ist jetzt alles klar? Ich möchte nicht gern die Notenbeispiele verlieren ... --Mautpreller 20:39, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
Nein, ist alles bestens, ich habe die Warnhinweise soeben erntfernt. --GeorgHH 20:42, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

Kategorien und Unterkategorien...[edit]

Moin GeorgHH, danke, daß Du mehrere Bilder von Segelschiffen kategorisiert hast. Könntest Du in Zukunft aber bitte nicht Category:Sailing ships benutzen, sondern die jeweils zutreffenden Unterkategorien? Klasse, danke, Ibn Battuta 00:21, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Ibn Battuta, wenn möglich mache ich das auch, allerdings muß dann aus der Beschreibung hervorgehen um was für ein Schiff es sich handelt oder woher es kommt. Sonst nehme ich die Hauptkategorie damit jemand, der sich besser mit Schiffen auskennt, sie richtig einordnen kann. --GeorgHH 09:59, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Question about changes you did[edit]

I have seen that you added lines as [[es:Actinidia deliciosa]] on page What is the purpose of that because I don't see anything on the page? To mention the name in other languages I use the syntax {{de|Kiwifrucht}}. You can answer in German (reading German is for me no problem, writing without too much errors is).--Wouterhagens 13:58, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, i write in english - to improve my not good english ;-)
The entrys like [[es:Actinidia deliciosa]] displays the links to analogical wikipedia articles. This links are called interwiki links. You see them in the left column under the toolbox, they're not displayed in the image description itself. I copyed the link from de.wikipedia. --GeorgHH 17:43, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for the answer. I usually check the Dutch, French, English and German wiki sites whether there is a link to the Commons. If not I add for example {{commons|Actinidia_chinensis|Kiwifrucht}}. The interwiki links you mentioned are useful to find the pages and if they are not there I will add them in the future. --Wouterhagens 08:25, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Rascacielos de Cesenatico[edit]

Scuse me, but I don't speak English very well. I have taken the image of "Rascacielos de Cesenatico". I think that now it's OK. I have realased it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. If there is any problem, please say to me. Thank you. Sebasgs 14:41, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

It is ok now, thanks for your help. --GeorgHH 17:48, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Removing a picture from Wikimedia[edit]

Hi, I have a request for you: can you remove (or ask someone for removing) the following picture? Image:Innocenti 850-S Spider.JPG. I'd like that picture (uploaded by myself) to be removed because the filename is wrong. Thanks. Bye bye !!! Luc106

Hi, i have deleted it with a notice to the new image Image:Innocenti 950-S Spider.JPG. --GeorgHH 14:34, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Why my images are not correct?[edit]

Hi, you have sent me some messages in my discussion page with the notice This media may be delete. Your message tell I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear.

Well, I usually write in the page details this

Author: Giancarlo Dessì (Posted by --gian_d 17:24, 9 April 2007 (UTC))

so, I specify who created the content (Giancarlo Dessì is my name) and set the template {{GFDL-self}} or {{cc-by-sa-2.5-it}}. Can you tell me where I was wrong? Thanks --gian_d 17:24, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, yes you have given that you the author, but it is no copyright tag on the image descriptions. Please add a licence and the remove the warning. Thank you. --GeorgHH 17:30, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Sorry, it is possible I was confused. I'm checking all my uploads and I found some pictures without licensing tags. Thanks :) --gian_d 18:22, 9 April 2007 (UTC)


I am not very pleased with you removing my Badr_Hari.jpg. The British Badr Hari article clearly states that the image is free to use. Therefore i request that you make everything the way it was.

This image is not free. clearly says Copyright (C) 2006 G.T.Entertainment, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Unauthorized publication or exploitation of text, images or content of this website is specifically prohibited.

Image:Kenwa Mabuni.jpg[edit]

I added some info about source, just as you requested. But nobody knows who actually made this picture - it was some years ago, author is dead by now, so the only sure thing is fact, that this photo i used by every shito-ryu karate web pages, resources etc.

Hi, if you dont know the author you cant say he died more than 70 years ago. Also i cant see a copyright notice on --GeorgHH 14:28, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
I am quite sure that I have already choosed this option (that author died 70 years ago) and it means "public domain" in practice. And yes - on there is nothing about copyrights, just like on every others websites which are using this picture. Ehh... I must say that I am surprised that this picture caused any troubles here... I thought there won't be any.


Hello, if I have some selfmade pictures what I want to upload here what source or license i must to put that it will be accepted in your community guys. Nota bene! I want that my name (fotographers name still stand, that it is not inkognito picture, just author name will remain ?=

Hello, for self created images is {{Cc-by-sa-2.5}} a good idea. --GeorgHH 18:35, 11 April 2007 (UTC)


Why did you suppress this image? It was provided by Google Earth which provides free-licensed images, doesn't it?


No, on the image itself are copyright watermarks. The image is not free for all puposes. --GeorgHH 18:44, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Pictures from NSU[edit]

Delete them all if you want since your "commitee" thought that the agreement of the university which owns the copyrights is not sufficient... It is so easy to destroy other people's work instead of trying to improve it... Graouilly54 07:04, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

We cant improve it, if you cant give concrete approriate licence information. --GeorgHH 09:51, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

What's wrong with my photos?[edit]

Hi! I would ask you what's wrong with my uploads you tagged! I'm talking about Image:Cibiana_San_Lorenzo.JPG and Image:Cibiana_Cadore_belltower.JPG that are already deleted and Image:Sagrada fam guell.JPG and Image:Lorenzago scoiattolo.JPG that still exist. You say that the author isn't specified but I don't agree:in the description my name is indicated. About the two you already deleted I can't say if you are wright or wrong but you should give me more time!Thank you and good work.--Kufoleto 07:36, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello Kufoleto, i have undeleted Image:Cibiana San Lorenzo.JPG and Image:Cibiana Cadore belltower.JPG. With licence tag they are ok now. The two other images are ok now, too. A question: it helps the administrators if you write in the description :Author= Antonio De Lorenzo ([[User:Kufoleto]]) . Then its clear that the uploader is the same person as the author. Thank you. --GeorgHH 09:45, 12 April 2007 (UTC)


Hi, This is about Image:Keladi_Rameshwara_gandaberunda_dtv.jpeg. It is a derivative that I uploaded, the original of which can be found here. The original uploader is user:Dineshakannambadi, an editor at en.wikipedia. I want to license this dtv under gfdl and cc (multilicense). But when I uploaded this pic couple of days ago, for some reason I didnt get the usual drop down menu where I can choose the licenses. And I dont remember the tag syntaxes off the top of my head. Can you explain why the drop down menu didnt come? I see that there have been some changes recently. Does it mean that we have to hereafter, manually tag our pics with the appropriate licenses? Sarvagnya 07:46, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, if you click It is from another Wikimedia project on the upload form it comes no drop down menue and you must dircetly typ in {{GFDL}} or {{username}}. To upload your own work you must select It is entirely my own work, then you can choose a tag from the drop down menue. --GeorgHH 16:58, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Why are photos still tagged.[edit]


I have written permissions for most of the tagged photos. Could you please remove the tags of the following photos whose permissions I have already sent to (Permissions were forwarded to from my emails: and

By the way is there any non-commercial license that is compatible with commons. thanks - Marmoulak 23:43, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, the tags will be removed if the permission on OTRS is in process and added to the images itself.

It is no non-commercial license compatible with commons, all files here must can be used by anyone, for any purpose. More information you can find on Commons:Licensing. --GeorgHH 17:32, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Two images to un-tag[edit]


As an admin on the french wikipedia, I help a new user (names Kasos here too) in a program similar to the "adopt a user" program on the english wikipedia. He has uploaded two images here : Image:Guy lebegue.jpg and Image:Jlh72.jpg. In fact, he is Guy Lebègue and has himself taken the photograph of Jean-Louis Heudier. He has put informations fot both images, and wonders why his images are still tagged for deletion within 7 days.

That I have, but I still don't know how to search on wikimedia - I tracked 'em down through a suggestion on wikipedia (found them when another user pointed them out to me from another page). Is the secret to use the categories? Does wikimedia have categories? Is there a FAQ?

Nur meine familie heisst "dambaek" also woher sollte ich dann das logo gestolen haben???? Ich hoffe dass du mir bald eine Antwort geben kannst.

Logos sind auf commons nicht erlaubt, ebenso ist fair use-material verboten, siehe Commons:Licensing. Solche Bilder kannst du auf hochladen.
Du mußt bei jedem Bild angeben unter welcher Lizenz es steht, unvollständige Angaben stellen einen Löschgrund dar.
Das du der Rechteinhaber der Bilder bist, war nirgendwo zu erkennen. --GeorgHH 12:56, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Judging from past experience and looking at the number of complaints on your talk page, the process for validating the use of images remains extremely cumbersome and is screaming out to be rationalised. It is extremely frustrating and irritating to have to return to the images repeatedly. While we're about it please get someone to change the tags used from "this media may be deleted" to either "this medium may be deleted" or "these media may be deleted" ("media" is plural, "medium" is single - also shouldn't the word "image" or "picture" be used instead?)

Help needed about possible United Nations copyright tag![edit]

Hi! I contacted the United Nations Photo Library, asking them if I could use images under "fair use" since the UNPL website says that fair use is ok. I wanted to check if so and sent them an e-mail. The response was better then I would have hoped for:

Name: Björn Mattsson



Referral page: /av/photo/photo_library.asp

Comments: I was wandering if one could use UN photos (low resolution) on the non-profit Wikipedia encyclopedia. I have read the guidelines of using photos under the fair use statures and it looks ok, but I still wanted to ask. Best regards

Hi. The source of this image is this. I'm not the creator but I thought that this photo was on public domain because is a very old photo...

Hello, to know the image is pd-old, you must know who the author is and when he died. --GeorgHH 08:48, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for the info, but I don't know this details, I think that you can delete the image. Sorry. --Elisardojm 12:01, 25 April 2007 (UTC). PD: I forgot sign my last post, sorry too. :)

Image:Amazan em Show.jpg[edit]

It's not a caption, but a picture from a concert that was recorded and sold in a DVD. However there's no license or source. Dantadd 23:03, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Pfäffikon SZ, Schlossturm und Seedamm-Center[edit]

Hi GeorgHH, die Bilder Pfäffikon SZ und Schlossturm stehen nicht in einem Copiright. Von mir aus kann man das Bild Seedamm-Center löschen! --LukeSZ 16:42, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Categorization & Deletion[edit]

You marked an image that I uploaded as uncategorized—how do I categorize it? Is there a master list of categories? Also, is there a way that I can delete an image that I uploaded to Wikimedia Commons? I misspelled the title, which is "Golondrinas Entrance Rapelling.png". I've since uploaded the same photo with a correctly spelled title. Thanks! Stubb 17:32, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, for help about categoies see Commons:Categories, a tool to find appropriate categories is
Images can be deleted only by an admin. You can mark an misspelled image with {{Bad name}} (e.g. wrote {{Bad name|Image:Golondrinas Entrance Rappelling.png}}.) I have deleted the misspelled Image:Golondrinas Entrance Rapelling.png. If you have questions, please contact me. --GeorgHH 18:20, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the links. I've bookmarked them for future references.Stubb 13:18, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Vielleicht …[edit]

… kannst du das zum Löschen ja gebrauchen? :-) Grüße, --Polarlys 23:49, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Danke, habs auch gleich in meine monobook.js kopiert - aber es funktioniert nicht... Vielleicht kannst du mal schauen woran es liegt, ich kenne mich mit scripten nicht wirklich aus. --GeorgHH 00:36, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
Habe mal noch was angepasst, ansonsten leere mal den Cache (Strg + R) und dann müsste über dem Commons-Logo die kleine Löschbox erscheinen. Falls nicht, so sprech ich den Ersteller nochmal an, ich hab es auch nicht selber gemacht :) Grüße, --Polarlys 00:39, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
Die Box habe ich, aber beim klick auf einen Eintrag passiert nichts. --GeorgHH 00:45, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Sollte jetzt gehen. --Polarlys 22:33, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Bild abschaffen[edit]

Bonjour Georg,

Merci de m'indiquer la raison de la suppression de l'image suivante :

20 novembre 2006 à 14:26 GeorgHH (Discuter | Contributions) a effacé « Image:Maison d'enfants de Sèvres 04-06-2005.jpg »

Il s'agit d'un "owner work", d'une œuvre personnelle, donc pas de problème de droits.

OTRS check[edit]

I can not find the e-mail. There is only 1 outstanding e-mail from February and it's not about these images. I would likely think the e-mail was never sent, or another agent replied because it didn't specify what image or wasn't specific enough of a license. In order to search better, I would need the e-mail it was sent in from, or a ticket number. MECUtalk 13:38, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

You are using different licences for you images, so i dont know what is the right for Image:Impresion de alginato.jpg: {{PD-self}} or {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-2.5,2.0,1.0}}? --GeorgHH 19:50, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
