Thorpe pic[edit]

Can you help me crop and clean up this pic? It's desperately needed over on en. It's some kind of weird file that I can't edit, I can't even get it to display on my computer using Windows picture or Media center and had trouble uploading it. I'm not sure if you're aware of the Thorpe fiasco but if you have time/interest see from here down, it's on FAR and one issue is that it has no pic. Quadzilla99 05:10, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

To clarify I talked the flickr user into sharing so that thread doesn't relate to the flickr pic in question. Quadzilla99 05:11, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Dutch licence information[edit]

What he basically does is citing the freedom of panorama paragraphs of the copyright law. Here he assumes that, because there exists freedom of panorama, all pictures taken from the object are not copyrightable. He is wrong of course, and I will contact him about it. -- Bryan (talk to me) 18:54, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Fine, thank you for help! --GeorgHH 19:36, 3 May 2007 (UTC)



LayersTransparent.jpg sat happily in commons for a few months, but when I was not looking it disappeared. There is no problem with the copyright of the picture. I created it from scratch. I know what copyright info to enter, and try to do so with every picture I upload, but I sometimes inadvertently may miss entering it on the page, especially days when the template seems messed up. Is there any way to undelete the image? I do not have any copy on my harddisk, so if it is gone from wikipedia, it is gone from the world. Thanks. Mlewan 21:04, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello, if have undeleted the image and tagged with PD-self. --GeorgHH 21:20, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
Great! Thanks! Mlewan 22:07, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Images tagging[edit]

Dear GeorgeHH, thank you for the vigilance on the recently uploaded images (see User talk:Pavlucco). As you may notice all of this images are EXTREMELY OUTDATED that means they were taken before the 20th century or just in the beginning of the 20th centurty - before the WWI. In the any way they depict a monastery destroyed by the bolsheviks in 1930. On the other side, as you may also notice:

These files are in the public domain in Russia. They were published before January 1, 1954, and the creator (if known) died before that date (For veterans of the Great Patriotic War, the critical date is January 1, 1950).

So, in the anyway, we have more than 20 years non-overlapping 'time buffer' from 1930 - the year of destruction of the object of these images to the critical date of January 1, 1954 (and later) - when Copyrighting is becoming 'theoretically possible'.

Unfortunately it is impossible to discover the creators for this truly public pictures because they died about 100 years ago.

My general policy on the image uploading means that:

  • I upload my own images (created by me) with Copyleft tags
  • Or apparently outdated pictures that are in the PD Worldwide.

So I ask you to remove 'no source' tags (some information is added) and quite sure these images may be left on Wikimedia absolutely legally.

Thanks to you once again, Pavlucco 19:57, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello, you cant tag an image with PD-old if dont know the the author and his death date. Also, if you tag an image with PD-Russia you must know the author or the date of first publishing of the image. --GeorgHH 11:49, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

thanks for bringing this to my attention, i hadn't realised i hadn't put a licence, im not used to the image upload on wiki commons. --Steveoc 86 21:15, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for adding the licence tag. --GeorgHH 11:51, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Image:Hokkaido wolf.jpg[edit]

Hi - saw from Commons ticker on Wikibooks you had tagged this. It has been deleted several times on Wikibooks - someone seems to want to use this and other "wolf" photos for their own agenda - personally I would delete it - regards --Herby talk thyme 10:17, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Image Alex Salmond[edit]

Hello - Despite explaining the copyright situation regarding this image in its description, it was deleted. The image was uploaded under exactly the same fair use guidelines as the image for other Scottish political leaders who appear in Wikipedia. Please explain why the image, released by the copyright holder for public use under specific conditions which were adhered to, was deleted. Thanks

Rab-k 18:36, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello, the image was deleted because it is a press image and derivative works aren't allowed. All images on commons must allow derivative works and commercial use, fair use is not allowed here (but on english wikipedia). See Commons:Licensing#Material under the fair use clause is not allowed on the Commons. --GeorgHH 20:21, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

About my uploads[edit]

Hello GeorgHH. In want to react about your messages on my talk page.

Regards, RM77 16:52, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello RM77, thanks for your fast reply. To help others to use the images, it would helpful if you give a description to Image:LouisGuiguen,photoavecMarcelCachin,1948.jpg: where and by which situation was the image maked? Thank you. --GeorgHH 16:59, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

medalha de ouro[edit]

Hi, George. I think your doubt on this image is because you do not understand portuguese and the license is in this language. The man portrayed on it is a brazilian olympics gold medalist in Sailing and the image was uploaded by user Jo Lorib (I just cropped it) who took the license from Marcelo, the champion, who provided the image from his own archive to the uploader. This assertion is written in the license but you can't understand. I hope I have helped. Thanks. Machocarioca 01:05, 16 May 2007 (UTC)Machocatioca

Hello, thanks for your explanation. Your cropped image has no licence tag. If GFDL is the correct licence for Image:Medalha de ouro 2006 T e M.JPG, then you must add also {{GFDL}} to Image:Medalha de ouro 2006 3.jpg. Thank you. --GeorgHH 12:51, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

picture license[edit]

Dear GeorgHH, I am a novice, could you please help me. You've marked for deletion photo Image:Yeltsin resignation.jpeg which is placed to public domain by it's author. I provided source link and link to author's permissions page. What else can I do to revoke deletion mark? Which type of license should I specify there?--Stopar 03:32, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello, the problem is that [1] not give a concrete licence and it is no information that derivative works are allowed (all images on commons must allow derivative works and commercial use).
You should ask the copyright holder about derivative works of this image. If it is allowed, you can use {{Copyrighted free use provided that}} (write {{Copyrighted free use provided that|any reproduction or broadcasting of the website’s materials contain a reference to the original source}}). --GeorgHH 08:32, 18 May 2007 (UTC)


When Image:HIVT.jpg has a license tag saying self-published but you have tagged it no source twice, what doubt do you have? If you doubt the accuracy of self-publication source, please use COM:DEL instead.--Jusjih 01:45, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

I wonder that you say i should use COM:DEL for this, but you self use no source for Image:ABN AMRO Coolsingel.JPG. --GeorgHH 08:40, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
Image:ABN AMRO Coolsingel.JPG does not say who made it so it has no source, but Image:HIVT.jpg has a self-published license, so speedy deletion does not apply, so you cannot consider both cases similar.--Jusjih 00:46, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi GeorgHH, I see you're an admin currently online doing some deletions. Could you delete may rubbish upload Image:MapLendelede.svg ?

Bild gelöscht[edit]

Hallo GeorgHH, unser Bild Neuehelden_studio.jpg wurde gelöscht. Wenn ich es richtig Verstanden habe, weil es wohl nicht richtig einsortiert war (?). Was können wir machen um es wieder herzustellen und wo gibt es eine Anleitung um solche Fehler in Zukunft zu Vermeiden? Ich halte mich zwar für einen relativ Englischsprecher, aber hier bin ich etwas konfus. Hättest du vielleicht auch noch einen Tipp, welches Lizenzmodell für Deutschland am besten passt? Gruß, 16:33, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, das Bild wurde gelöscht, weil keine Quelle angegeben war bzw. angezweifelt wurde das ihr die Rechteinhaber seid. Ihr könnt das Bild einfach erneut hochladen, aber ihr solltet klarstellen, das ihr ( die Rechteinhaber seit. Als Lizenzen würde ich {{Cc-by-sa-2.5}} und {{GFDL}} empfehlen, eingeben müßt ihr dazu {{Self|GFDL|Cc-by-sa-2.5}}. --GeorgHH 16:47, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

File:Los Simpson-La Película-Promo.jpg[edit]

Hi GeorgHH: You deleted Image:Los Simpson-La Película-Promo.jpg. It was a picture of a common guy, with the plastic scultures of the family Simpsons. Do you think it was copyrighted? Can you tell me the rule that estates that? It could be usefull to learn, for future cases. Thanks, George. Regards, --Roblespepe 04:06, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello Roblespepe, the Simpson figures are copyrighted, so every image of them is a derivative work. Please read Commons:Derivative works for more information. Thank you. --GeorgHH 09:09, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

German help needed[edit]

Hi Georg - Would you be able to translate my message on this user's page in German, please: User talk:Cornava - I understand German, but I'm afraid my written German would probably make less sense to this user than my English :) (There was still a misunderstanding after I added in the German template - user has left msg. on my talkpage) Thanks in advance and kind regards, Deadstar 10:22, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, ich war am 7.4.2007 noch ein Commons-Anfänger, habe manches falsch gemacht. Ich glaubte damals, ich hatte bei diesem Bild die Lizenz verpasst, deshalb habe ich das löschen verlangt damit ich es dann später wieder richtig aufladen konnte. Ich sehe jetzt aber dass ich es doch richtig gemacht habe. Also, bitte, nicht löschen. Ich setzte diesen Kommentar auch in die Diskussion des Bildes ein. Herrlich das wir uns so gut, trotz Umwegen, doch verstehen können. Danke und Grüsse.--Cornava 10:05, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Hola, da bin ich wieder denn ich habe eben gesehen dass Du in Bargota2 und 13 Sterne eingesetzt hast. Das ist schön. Ich werde es in meinen "alten" Bilder und in den Neuen auch machen. Nochmals Danke. --Cornava 10:14, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Ist meine eben aufgeladene Image:Alberite1.JPG richtig?. --Cornava 11:49, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Ja, wunderbar! Nur eine Kategorie fehlt noch, das ist sehr wichtig, damit andere Benutzer die Bilder finden können. --GeorgHH 11:53, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Freue mich sehr, ich mache das mit der Kategory sofort. Jetz habe ich eine weitere Frage. In der "Category:Books" möchte ich die Subcategorie "Travel literature" oder wie man es eben auf Englisch bezeichnet, haben. Auf Deutsch ist es, wenn ich mich nicht irre: "Reiseberichte". Ich habe diese Subcategory zu machen versucht, ist mir aber nicht gelungen. Grüsse, --Cornava 17:55, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Wie ich sehe hast du es doch geschafft die Kategorie anzulegen, fein. Jedoch, wird eine Galerie nicht in Kategorien eingetragen. Ich habe das rausgenommen und die Galerie Travel literature angelegt, die dann wiederrum in der Category:Travel literature einsortiert ist. Zur Kategorisierung deiner Bilder (z.B. Image:Espartero-Exmilianos.jpg): Bitte ordne die Bilder nur der spezifischsten Kategorie zu, es reicht also die Kategorie Category:First Carlist War da diese eine Unterkategorie von Category:Wars ist. Siehe auch die Hilfe unter Commons:Kategorien. --GeorgHH 21:28, 26 May 2007 (UTC)


Hallo GeorgHH,

kommen auch noch Bilder vom Hafengeburtstag. Da du bei aktuellen Ereignissen vor Ort bist, hoffe ich, daß du auch am 12. Mai fotografiert hast oder jemanden kennst, die/der fotografiert hat. Vielen Dank. --Timo Beil 18:22, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Timo, danke für dein Interesse, aber leider war ich nicht auf dem Hafengeburtstag. Bist du dort gewesen (wie ich sehe bist du nicht aus dem hohen Norden)?
Bei der ASEM-Demo bin ich durch Zufall gelandet, als ich in der Speicherstadt fotografiert habe. Die Bilder sind eigentlich nicht sehr interessant, da man von der Demo bzw. den Demonstranten selbst kaum etwas sieht. Aber mich direkt ins Getümmel zu begeben schien mir denn doch etwas zu gewagt ;-) Gruß --GeorgHH 19:16, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Ich war an dem Tag in Bochum, siehe Kategorie: Dampffest Bochum 2007, wollte viele Stunden Direktübertragung von Phoenix aufnehmen und stellte wieder zu Hause leider fest, daß ich keinen leeren Datenträger eingelegt hatte. Weiter bin ich dieses Jahr noch nicht nach Norden vorgedrungen, oder ist die Westfalenhalle in Dortmund weiter nördlich? Etwas östlicher sicher. --Timo Beil 00:14, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

destroying a little bit too fast[edit]


I see that all the illustrations I had uploaded to illustrate some articles I had contributed to and my page have been deleted. The problem with automatic controls of image rights, is that they do not read the corresponding text nor "see" what it is about. If the had done so, they would have seen that the images used are 1) my creations in case of art objects 2) correspond to common (mathematical/scientifical ) knowledge in case of explaining schemas.

Now, "my" article is referring to illustrations that have disappeared. I understand you have good reasons to control images, but in this case removing was not appropriate action. How are you going to have them reappear ?

Thanks for being as fast to restore as you were to remove...

Best regards

--Lyonart 20:11, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello, all files uploaded by you was deleted because they was missing essential information. No author was stated, also no source and no copyright statement. Such incomplete files are against the commons licensing policy. Please read also Commons:First steps/Quality and description to learn about acceptable uploads. --GeorgHH 20:27, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

gallery tool not working(Or did I do somtething wrong ?)[edit]

Hi again GeorgHH

In your previous message to me, you also give a link "gallery" on which I can see my uploads. Actually, clicking on "gallery" opens a query page... which leads after several minutes to an error message. What can be the problem ? Sorry, I am trying to be a clean wiki contributer and write good, thought-over articles, but still in the learning phase...

And of course thanks for help/explaination/etc. --Lyonart 20:28, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi, this seems to be a sever problem, you did it right. But it shows only excisting files, your deleted files will not be displayed. Please use this link to see all your files, deleted (red) and excisting (blue).
You can simple upload the files again, but remember to fill out all fields at the information-text box in the online form (see Commons:First steps/Quality and description). --GeorgHH 20:41, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Verschiebung gelöschten Inhalts nach Wikipedia[edit]

Hallo, ich spreche dich als Admin an. Würde es dir was ausmachen, bei Gelegenheit mal das hier einzusehen, als Markup zu kopieren und mir irgendwie (Diskussionsseite, E-Mail) zukommen zu lassen, damit ich eine bearbeitete Version davon in die Wikipedia retten kann, wo solche Inhalte wohl besser aufgehoben sind? Es handelt sich um eine bilderlose Tabelle, die als solche auf den Commons offenbar unerwünscht ist und die Szczepan1990 daher gelöscht hat, allerdings ohne dabei diesen Grund anzugeben.

(Übrigens hat derselbe Admin noch eine andere Tabellenseite ohne Nennung von Gründen gelöscht, diese aber sechs Tage später ebenfalls ohne Angabe von Gründen wiederhergestellt – irgendwie etwas inkonsequent, auch was den enzyklopädischen Wert von ihm gelöschter, zugegebenermaßen nutzloser Fotos im Vergleich zu dem ebenso nutzlosen Foto auf seiner Benutzerseite betrifft, der sich mir nicht erschließt.)

Staubsauger 2007-05-30 02:26

Moin, du hast mit beidem Recht, die Artikel entsprechen (zumindest auf den ersten Blick) nicht dem Projektrahmen, und die Löschung hätte von Szczepan begründet werden müssen.
Die wiederherstellung von Glossaire héraldique français/anglais beruht wohl auf einer Anfrage auf seiner Diskussionsseite (User_talk:Szczepan1990#Please_undelete_Glossaire_h.C3.A9raldique_fran.C3.A7ais.2Fanglais).
Ich habe beide Seiten erstmal in den Benutzerseitenraum verschoben und aus den vorhandenen Kategorien rausgenommen, da ich nicht weiß wie du weiter damit hier auf commons verfahren willst. Du findest sie hier. --GeorgHH 10:27, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Besten Dank, damit ist mir sehr geholfen! Mit dem glossaire héraldique habe ich zwar nichts zu tun, habe aber auch nichts gegen eine Lagerung bei mir. Schönen Tag noch! Dustsucker 11:56, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Unknown author[edit]

I have imported some pictures on Commons, founded on wikipedia in different langages (but not from Wiki en!). Since that, i've got messages ti inform me that the authors were unkwon et thait teh files will be delated withn a week. I don't understand what i have to do. All those picture are in public domain ou free or rights, fonded 'and used) on Wiki but i can't find any name of author.Couthon 15:44, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

That's the problem, you can't say it is in the public domain if you don't know the author or source of the original image. Such files with incomplete information are not usable on commons and will be deleted. --GeorgHH 17:36, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
I still don't understand. The picture of Steiner on Wiki it has tehe label "public domain" and the page related to this picture mentions that it may be transferred on Commons ; they are non informations on the author on the pages about the picture or about Steiner and this illustration is present on Wiki it since monthes.Couthon 08:00, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes, i have seen it, but the images should also be deleted on the wikipedias. The move-to-commons label is useless if the image has incomplete source and license information. Source information is meaning that the photographer is named, and also the date of the photograph. Without this information we have no indication for PD/GFDL or that the uploader on wikipedia is the photograper self (this is doubtful). The only way to receive information about the images is to ask the uploaders on wikipedia. --GeorgHH 09:21, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Just fly and go the right way
In this Image you can see me!

Thanks for your Vote (oppose) at my stopped RFA. Even if it is stopped, it was a nice experience for me and I learned from it. Perhaps I´ll try it again in a few month, and I would be happy if you would give your vote (best a support;)) again. Thank you again, __ ABF __ 12:16, 11 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi Georg. Don't you think that template:Bild-by can be just redirected to template:Attribution? The question was raised at Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/Attention#Merge_Template:Bild-by_to_Template:Attribution.3F, maybe you could comment? / Fred J 18:03, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, I'd like to ask you a question... some months ago I have uploaded a picture of an old car.
This is the picture: Image:Peugeot Type-190-S.jpg.
Unfortunately, I have made a mistake when I uploaded the photo. In fact, The picture doesn't show a Peugeot Type 190, but a Peugeot Type 172 BC. So I ask you to remove the picture, so I can re-upload it with the right filename... Thank you very much! Let me know! Bye bye! Luc106

Hello, please upload it with a new name like Image:Peugeot Type 172 BC Quadrilette.jpg, and put {{Bad name|Image:Peugeot Type 172 BC Quadrilette.jpg}} to the description of the old wrong named image. Then the old file will be deleted. --GeorgHH 17:28, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, die Category:Clonmacnois muß Category:Clonmacnoise heißen genau wie der Artikel Clonmacnoise heißt. Verschieben kann ich die cat aber nicht. Kannst Du das machen? --Clemensfranz 14:50, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, schon erledigt. --GeorgHH 15:19, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Danke für die prompte Erledigung. --Clemensfranz 17:52, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Hallo zusammen, als derjenige, der diese Kategorie angelegt hat, bin ich schon etwas erstaunt, das solche Aktionen im Hauruckverfahren erfolgen, ohne eine Meinung von mir einzuholen. Der irische Name ist Cluain Maic Nóis (siehe Annalen von Tigernach) -- zu deutsch: Das Weideland der Söhne von Nóis. Entsprechend sollte auch in der englischen Variante das abschließende »e« wegbleiben, da Clonmacnois wenig mit »noise« zu tun hat. So findet es sich auch in der Fachliteratur, etwa in dem Standardwerk von Gwynn & Hadcock Medieval Religious Houses Ireland. Ja, ich weiß, es findet sich auch im Übermaß die Variante »Clonmacnoise«, aber wirklich richtig ist das nicht. Es war jedenfalls kein Tippfehler, als ich die Kategorie beim Anlegen so genannt habe. Seufz und viele Grüße, AFBorchert 22:25, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Hallo AF, ich habe mir vorher die entsprechenden Wikipediaartikel angeschaut, und da heissen sechs von acht Clonmacnoise. Ich kann mich nur daran orientieren; ob das so richtig ist kann ich nicht sagen. Villeicht kannst du das Problem in der deutschen und englischen Wikipedia mal ansprechen, solange die Artikel mehrheitlich Clonmacnoise lauten, sollte natürlich auch die commons Kategorie so bennant sein. --GeorgHH 15:29, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
Ich habe ein Visitors' Guide der OPW (The Office of Public Works /Oifig na nOibrreacha Poibli) vorliegen (in Englisch), den ich bei dem Besuch von Clonmacnoise am 09.05.2007 gekauft habe. Die OPW ist der Betreiber der Kosterruine Clonmacnoise und wenn die das so nennen, gehe ich davon aus, dass das richtig ist. Es sit halt ein Eigenname. AF hat aber auch Recht mit dem irischen Namen. --Clemensfranz 18:00, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
Ja, ich kann Eure Beweggründe schon nachvollziehen. Aber meinen kleinen Seufzer musste ich dennoch loswerden ;) Einen Feldzug werde ich nicht führen, weil das wegen dem in der Tat vielfach vorzufindendem »Clonmacnoise« jeweils eine nervenaufreibende Diskussion nach sich ziehen würde. Viele Grüße, AFBorchert 23:15, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

You take at my photo "copyvio'. I don't understand why... My friends from other jobs and my jobs give me photo with licence with I use for Wiki. You are blind or I cant't write in possible for you? Joymaster 22:40, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

You dant't havy any problems? Picture and photographs wich I take for Wiki are clean - GFDL or PD - I think you have trust me and it will be OK. Best regards Joymaster 22:48, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

It's a different if you take a photo yourself or if it was taken by someone other. If the photo is not your own you must provide a permission.
I can't trust one who provide hundreds of photos with unclear license information or hundreds of photos against project scope. An administrator should know about the generally commons policy rules, and he should stand to the rules to set a good example. --GeorgHH 08:12, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Here I write that I have permission - you still are thinking that it isn't possible? Maybe you don't know: I'm a soldier and I have many friends in anoher units. My friends are very happy that picture and photos wich they taken are for all wikipediausers. Joymaster 20:29, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

I look at your user-page. You don't understand my language, and you don't have helpful users with knoledge polish language... Problems are not in permission but they are in understanding. Think - nobody from this group say nothing about permission - And think that about 12% admins are from Poland. They understand permission. Joymaster 20:38, 25 June 2007 (UTC)


Hallo GeorgHH,

als ich kürzlich ein paar Nähmaschinenfotos zusammengesucht und dann hochgeladen habe, stellte ich fest:

18:01, 18. Mai 2007 GeorgHH (Diskussion | Beiträge) hat „Category:Sewing machine“ gelöscht (moved to Category:Sewing machines (plural). content was: 'Category:SewingCategory:Machines')

und mir wurde in Erinnerung gerufen, daß ich auch Kategorien im Singular angelegt habe, und zwar unter den Baumaschinen. Konkret geht es um Kipper und Lader, die Dumpers und Loaders sein müßten, aber weil im Deutschen Singular und Plural so ähnlich sind (der Radlader, die Radlader), habe ich das nicht bemerkt. Kinders, was war ich dumm! Asphaltiermaschinen dürften auch falsch sein, das war ich wohl nicht.

Kannst Du das komplett verschieben, oder müssen die Einträge einzeln geändert werden?--Timo Beil 09:30, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Timo, ich habe die Kategorien verschoben. --GeorgHH 11:31, 27 June 2007 (UTC)



You have recently edited many templates, and you impaired them by adding a line feed (example). Please, be careful when you edit widely used templates. Thanks. --Juiced lemon 18:43, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Oh, I see. Thanks for notice. --GeorgHH 20:01, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Deletion error[edit]

Kindly undelete Image:Phanerozoic Carbon Dioxide.png and Image:Solar Activity Proxies.png and any other of my images you deleted. They are dual licensed GFDL and CC-NC-BY-SA. As I would expect a Commons admin to know, mutually incompatible licensing options are entirely possible, simply requires a reuser choose one. Images on Commons need to be licensed under at least one compatible license, but do not require that all licenses be compatible.

As they were copied from Wikipedia (and not directly uploaded by me), they may have been documented incorrectly, but they should be marked {{GWArt}}. Dragons flight 07:24, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Hello, i have undeleted this files. --GeorgHH 19:41, 19 July 2007 (UTC)


The image page clearly states the author of the image! Thanks! Image:Nasimi isfara.JPG - 11:27, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

przykro mi ale nie wiem gdzie tutaj wklejać tą licencję

You must give all information (author, source, licence, permission) to the image description. If you have permission, give a verifable link to the permission. --GeorgHH 20:38, 31 August 2007 (UTC)


Moin Georg, ich habe diese Grafik entdeckt, da es den Benutzer:Olaf Roehling noch nicht gibt, die Frage an Dich, ich würde gerne eine anderen Deichqpuerschnitt, Sandkerndeich an der Elbe, aus dieser Vorlage bauen, könntest Du mir diese Arbeitsdatei, was für ein Programm auch immer, geben. Danke und mal wieder Lust auf ein Treffen in Hannover? Tschüß --Ra Boe 16:59, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Raboe, würde dir gern helfen, aber das Bild habe ich nur von wikipedia nach commons verschoben, welche Vorlagen der Benutzer zur Erstellung benutzt hat weiß ich leider nicht.
Vielen Dank für die Einladung, ich werde mal über die Teilnahme an einem Stammtisch nachdenken. --GeorgHH 12:49, 4 August 2007 (UTC)


Hello GeorgHH.

I'm new in Wikimedia Commons, and I don't know what's wrong with the license of this photo: Image:Catavino.jpg. I took it myself, and it has the tag with the CC license.

Thanks --El Pantera 09:16, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Hello El Pantera, your first upload on 19:51, 7. Apr. 2007 was without licence information for the image, this was the reason for deletion. Now it is ok, thank you. --GeorgHH 19:26, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Domingo photos[edit]

Fine, delete it. It was so difficult for me to request for permission from Mr. Domingo office via his PR to send me photos to be legally published in Wiki "groups" including Commons etc but now, after my hard work and finally managed to get them, you suggest for deletion? Probably my remark was wrong because I dont know what actually to write. But if I was wrong about my remarks, you should have advised me what to do instead of "SUGGEST" for deletion. I have deleted the page etc, no need to "vote" or suggest for deletion!. Thanks for nothing Georg! - Whjayg 08:03, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

I never post photos of any celebrities in my life nor do I bother to ask permission for it except for Domingo because I believe he deserves to have good photos in all Wiki Family. I wrote there as promotional because I thought that is how it should be written based on what I saw many people doing it in Wiki. The photos are given with unconditional permission straight from the PR in Placido Domingo office that hold all the events, publicities, his official website etc. The PR never state any terms and condition at all. When I requested for permission, I sent e-mail through the e-mail BOX in Placido Domingo official website, not from some agents or recording companies because I believe the consent should come from the company of the singer itself. I was expecting people here to advice me on what to write in the remarks or at least discuss with me if I have done or write anything wrong. I never expect the admin could easily come up to the conclusion for the photos to be deleted as soon as I uploaded it. The PR as a matter of fact, didn’t give me photos that I asked because according to her, all the photos that I asked have copyrights. She then, sending me photos approved by her company for various purposes including promotional etc to be published. So, it is still wrong to publish in here? I would love to hear your reply - Whjayg 09:50, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
First, I acknowledge your work to share Domingo photos in commons/wikipedia.
The deletion request is to discuss a problematical file, not a ultimate resolution.
As Túrelio wrote, all content on commons must be under a free licence. Please ask the copyright holder for permission to use the images with a concrete licence like {{Cc-by-sa-3.0}}. If you have permission, please send it to the OTRS system (it's not public) and the permission will be confirmed in the image description. --GeorgHH 19:23, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Confessions from a fair use image upload violator[edit]

Heh, sorry about Image:Time Cover March 8 1963.jpg and Image:Time Cover July 23 1965.jpg

I kind of read(ish) that there were strong feelings about these types of images being uploaded here -- with the exception that I might have seen some others and also that William H. Pickering has such a handsome exterior for such a working brain. I thought (honestly) the more of those images that I could move from wikipedia to the commons the better. -- apologies from my morning at the meat market -- carol 23:28, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

ps: let me know when you delete them and I will take the tags off from the wikipedia pages. -- carol
Hi carol, the images was deleted. To move images from to commons is a good idea, with the exception of fair use images. I use the move-to-commons-assistant - it's easy to use, allows only acceptable licensed files and suggest you approriate categories. Try it! --GeorgHH 08:11, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
I actually saw that upload tool before. I might soon use it, I really wanted to understand things in a way that only uploading manually could show. One of those things is akin to 'being pulled over by the commons police' and it is not always a bad experience :) -- carol 09:33, 3 October 2007 (UTC)


Zum Bild Image:Vinterviken_Spraengbunker_1910.jpg habe ich nun die Erlaubnis des Urbebers (Stockholms Stadsmuseum, "Faktarummet", Ingrid W Severin 08 508 31 641) eingeholt und im Bildbeschreibungstext angegeben, damit dürfte die Frage geklärt sein. Gruss--Holger.Ellgaard 12:54, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Der Lizenzstatus von Dateien auf den Commons muß überprüfbar sein. Bitte lies Commons:OTRS und sende eine erhaltene schriftliche Genehmigung an die dort angegebene email-adresse. --GeorgHH 17:23, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Oh yes, i agree. I feel kinda stupid, i uploaded it a long time ago. I deleted it. Anyways thanks for noticing me. Herr Kriss 00:59, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

A little advice[edit]

If you want to warn someone for avoiding upload more copyrighted image, you can simply use the {{end of copyvios}} template...
Yuval Y § Chat § 19:12, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for the advice. Of course, i have seen it before, i will get accustomed to use it. --GeorgHH 19:25, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Beuys Photos[edit]

Hallo GeorgHH, die Bilder sind alle von Rainer Rappmann vom FIU-Verlag. Er hat persönlich mit Beuys zusammengearbeitet und die Bilder aufgenommen, sowie auch die Lizenzen erteilt und diese via Email an die Wikimedia gesendet. Archiviert sind die Lizenzen bzw. Permisions bereits, sodass eigentlich kein Grund besteht die Bilder zu löschen. Die Quelle ist somit der Bestand von Rainer Rappmann vom FIU-Verlag. Mfg, --Zita 19:45, 18 October 2007 (UTC)


Ich hoffe das passt jetzt so mit den Quellen? Es sind jedenfalls alles alte Fotos, die ohnehin schon frei sein müssen (die jüngsten sind von 1930, aber die Fotografen unbekannt). - Buchhändler 22:12, 18 October 2007 (UTC)


Danke für die Nachbearbeitung!--Kuerschner 10:52, 21 October 2007 (UTC)


It does say who created the content: her name is Izabela Kornak. What more do you want? Her age and bra size? --Anittas 21:00, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Did you read the message I've added to Image:Zawichostmonument.JPG? You are not the creator of that image, so we need a written permission which confirm that you are allowed to publish this image and also Image:Vistula.JPG under the given license. You can find more info at Commons:Licensing and Commons:OTRS. --GeorgHH 19:04, 22 October 2007 (UTC)
I have forwarded the email from her with her permission to release the photos under free license, to the addy you gave me. In fact, I was going to do that. You see, I wanted to upload the photos on Wikipedia and there, it said that I should email the confirmation to that addy; however, upon selecting the license, it said that it would be better to upload the photos on wikimedia. When I got here, it said nothing about having to email the confirmation to any addy, so I assumed that it wasn't mandatory. It is for that reason that I did not email the confirmation to that addy, from the first place. Are you an admin? --Anittas 00:24, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for your support to make sure that only checkable free contents are stored on Commons.
At the upload form you should see a short how too for file upload with a section Permission.
I have marked your image with a message that you have send an permission email to OTRS. Please check next days that a OTRS member make a edit to the images that confirms the source and licence information you send. Otherwise contact a OTRS user to clarify the situation.
And yes, I am Admin. Have a nice day. --GeorgHH 11:07, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Regarding Image:Novena SquareIMG 8340.jpg[edit]

Thanks for placing my photograph in the correct catgory, I've been trying to find that category for hours. You seem to have a good gallery in your user page, if you have any advice on my photos, it would be appreciated. Thanks.


02:03, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Hello Someformofhuman, sorry for late answering!
You could not find Category:Novena Square - I have created it after your upload and found other images about Novena Square. To categorize your uploads you can try the tool CommonSense. Or browse trough a excisting category like Category:Singapore by clicking on [+] in front of category entries.
If you wish you can copy my gallery layout, it's free. But I think everybody should make own creation for his user page/image gallery. --GeorgHH 11:32, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Gee, I can see there are alot of stuff going on in Commons! Thanks for letting me know! And yeah, I might get a gallery like yours too, I'll see what I can do with the wiki codes... Thanks!

Image Tagging Image:Familie Ten Boom.gif[edit]

I did indicate where I found this image, and I indicated the date too. The picture was probably taken by a professional photographer, and the year is known: 1902. I guess that the photographer died a long time ago, but I cannot guarantee that it is at least 70 years. HandigeHarry 19:19, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

That's the problem. If the author is unknown, it is impossible to say he died 70 years ago, so it is not PD Old. --GeorgHH 19:25, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
