Image tagging[edit]

You just notified me that two of the images I uploaded don't have licence. Actually, both the images are from Wikipedia, one from and one from and I think I correctly tagged them as GFDL/user. Can you explain me which is the problem in this case?--Frazzone 13:40, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Can you tell me please which is the problem with those images? They are all from other Wikimedia projects, and everyone has its tag PD-user or GFDL-user.--Frazzone 13:44, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Hello, you must give a link to the original image at or so that other users can verify the given source, author and license information. Files with incomplete information will be deleted. For help see Commons:Licensing and Commons:First steps. For transfering images from wikipedias to Commons you should try Move-to-commons assistant, a tool that makes it easy and will get all required information. --GeorgHH 13:49, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Images Gumley.jpg and Conceptual vortex engine.jpg[edit]

Hello GeorgeHH, thank you for advising of the inadequate tagging of the 2 above images which I placed on Wikipedia Commons. At age 74 I have a bit of difficulty comprehending the tagging methods so if you would be so kind as to further adviser me or alternatively tag the images for me I would be appreciative.

The image Gumley.jpg was supplied to me by the Public Relations Department of the Department Of Defence Australia and is an unrestricted photo free for public use. (see also Wikipedia Stephen Gumley.

The image Conceptual vortex engine was taken from the site after communication with Eric Michaud of the company advising that it is in the public domain and free for public use. (see also Wikipedia Vortex engine.

(Addendum: I have emailed Dept of Defence and Eric Michaud requesting a repeat email giving explicit permission for use and shall onforward the replies to your email address)

Thanks Geoffrey Wickham (Wikipedia User:Geoffrey Wickham)Gwickau 02:26, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello Geoffrey, I am pleased to see that not only young people are member of our Commons community!
All files at Wikimedia Commons must be under a free license, free means that derivative works and commercial use must be allowed. To be able to verify the license status of files, it is required to give all relevant information about source, author and license. For files which are not your own work we need a link to sites that include such information, or you must have a written permission by the copyright holder to use the file under a specific license (see Commons:OTRS for further information). If you received such permission, please forward it to and a OTRS volunteer will add the information to your images.
Image:Gumley.jpg was tagged with {{GPL}} which is surely wrong, because it is a license for software. I have added source information to Image:Conceptual vortex engine.jpg, but it is no concrete license stated on --GeorgHH 11:04, 6 November 2007 (UTC).
Thank you sir, I have obtained an email of authorisation from Michaud of and forwarded that to Am awaiting a reply from Dept of Defence re Gumley.jpg and shall forward that as soon as received. Thanks for your help. Best Geoff

Image missing permission information[edit]

Hello GeorgHH, (I apologize if this is not the right place to post this.) Anyway, you recently added to my talk page several comments about images missing permission information. Those pictures come from the english version of wikipedia (see Final Fantasy XI) (you may notice the first one is different but they both are coming from the same game and representing the same thing) and while translating this article for the french version of the wiki (see Final Fantasy XI) I somehow noticed that I couldn't directly link to them (or at least couldn't find out how to do it). It was faster to upload them once more and that's what I did, however I wasn't sure which license I should use since the one mentionned in the pictures on the english version of the wiki (Vana'diel.jpg for example) wasn't available.
I'm fairly new to wikipedia so I would appreciate it if you could explain me what I should do.
Thanks in advance !
Kikoogay 20:56, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello Kikoogay, unfortunately the images I've tagged will be deleted. The problem is that Commons only accept free files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. Your files are not free because they are screenshots of copyrighted programms/games. This material, called fair use, is not allowed on Commons, see Material under the fair use clause is not allowed on the Commons. So please do not transfer files from that marked as fair use. --GeorgHH 21:13, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick answer GeorgHH. I have no problem with the suppression of those pictures, I was just confused since they seemed to be allowed on the english wiki. Kikoogay 21:21, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
There are a lot of other files on which are free and are waiting for moving to Commons to be available for all the Wikimedia projets - feel free to move them to Commons. A helpful tool for that job is the Move-to-commons assistant - try it! --GeorgHH 21:29, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Andrea Yates Image[edit]

I'm only calling attention here to the Andrea Yates image because the deletion request you made was 8 days ago, and I am afraid if I don't call your attention to it here, the image will be deleted before you can respond.

Your misunderstanding was that the Yates frame grab was sourced from a CNN video. This is not true. It came from Texas state evidence which the article was only cited to prove that it has been released into public domain by the District Attorney of Texas.

Please see my discussion at the Andrea Yates image page.

Verstehen Sie bitte meine gedankengänge! Lesen Sie nicht so schnell, meinen Freund!!! :)

(I hope I said that correctly). Thomas Anderson 07:37, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello Thomas, the transcript uses different statements: "What more will be out there in the public domain soon?" and "So in answer to your question, at some point these tapes and this information is going to become public. " In my eyes this is not the same, and I cant verify if the image/video is in the public domain or not. Also, the image here is tagged as PD-because and as GFDL. One license tag must be wrong. The deletion request was made to discuss this problem. --GeorgHH 08:46, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Georg, There is no question from the following CNN article statement that the video from which the image was grabbed is not awaiting release, it has definitely been released already:
"Prosecutors have now released tapes presented as evidence at her trial, including a prison interview with a defense psychiatrist just a month after the murders."
When Odom says "these tapes":
"So in answer to your question, at some point these tapes and this information is going to become public."
He is not referring to the already released materials, he is referring to other documents which have not yet been released--"additional tapes," he said. That means beyond the tapes they initially discussed at the begining of the article.
"HEMMER: Wendell, curious to know from you, perhaps there is more to come forward. What more will be out there in the -public domain- soon? ODOM: Well, there's the -- there's additional tapes."
The following link to a CBS article proves there is no question that the Puryear interview with Yates video was released by the D.A.,
I'm assuming -Hemmer-, a professional reporter knows what "public domain" means in the most technical copyright sense, and that despite claims by another commenter at the discussion page, I am not the one errantly defining "public domain."
I'm a little beside myself that such a claim would be made without any basis in fact. I would appreciate if you would investigate that comment. His judgment is clearly off base. Thomas Anderson 12:05, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
The GFDL and PD tags weren't meant by me to ride together. My intention was the PD rationale. I'm not sure how or why the other tag got in there. It might be my unfamiliarity with the new procedure for uploading. What should be done about that? Thomas Anderson 12:12, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Thomas, please make your comments at Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Public Domain Image Andrea Yates.jpg, so other users can participate to the deletion request. I've started the request, but after discussion it will be closed by another admin. Thank you. --GeorgHH 18:42, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Auguste Beernaert(03).jpg[edit]

You have marked this image for speedy deletion since it lacked a source. I've uploaded this image to the Commons from the en.wikipedia where it was uploaded by someone else. I did a Google search and the most probable source is the the Taking into account that August Beernaert died in 1912, it can be safely assumed that the photo was made earlier, probably around 1900. Therefore, I assume that the license for this photo is PD-old and the photo can be retained. JoJan 18:23, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

How can we know the author died before 1937 and his age at that date, if he is unknown? --GeorgHH 19:51, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
I've added the source and a justification for the license Pd-Old. If you check the article Public domain, you'll find the text "The copyright in a published work expires in all countries (except Colombia, Côte d'Ivoire, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Samoa, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines) when any of the following conditions are satisfied :
  • The work was created and first published before 1 January 1923, or at least 95 years before January 1 of the current year, whichever is later"
Since August Beernaert died in 1912, the photo was certainly published before 1 January 1923 and therefore the license Pd-Old applies.
I ask you then to remove the speedy deletion template from the image. JoJan 16:06, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
I've changed it to a deletion request, see Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Auguste Beernaert(03).jpg. --GeorgHH 18:30, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Willkommen Österreich.jpg[edit]

Hallo! Ich wollte fragen, was bei der Lizenz nicht stimmen soll, ich kenne mich noch nicht so gut aus, weiß aber, dass man getrademarkte Logos hier mit {{Trademarked}} verwenden darf, oder? Welche Lizenzvorlagen bräuchte ich für dieses Logo noch außer dieser?--Marcus123 14:13, 11 November 2007 (UTC) P.S.:Selbst erstelltes Logo--Marcus123 14:16, 11 November 2007 (UTC) Noch etwas: was unterscheidet die Lizenzierung dieses Bildes von meinem?--Marcus123 14:19, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Hallo, es geht nicht um das Logo, sondern darum, daß du ein Bild von einem geschützen Werk angefertigt hast (snapshot/screenshot). Somit stellt es eine Urheberrechtsverletzung / Derivative work dar, es sei denn, du hast eine schriftliche Genehmigung von Superfilm das das Bild unter GFDL|CC-BY-SA-3.0,2.5,2.0,1.0 verwendet werden darf (Siehe dazu Commons:OTRS). Du hast die Datei früher schon einmal hochgeladen, Image:Willkommen Österreich logo 2.png, und sie wurde wegen Urheberrechtsverletzung gelöscht. Ich habe die Datei als Genehmigung fehlt markiert, somit erhältst du letzmalig die Chance eine Einverständniserklärung an OTRS zu senden, ansonsten wird die Datei in sieben Tagen gelöscht.
{{Trademarked}} ist nur ein zusätzlicher Hinweis, es ersetzt nicht die Angabe einer Lizenz. --GeorgHH 17:57, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Wohin soll man die Lizenz schicken, wenn der Urheber einwilligt? (WÖ-Team fragt bereits)--Marcus123 21:23, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Die Einverständniserklärung ist an zu senden. Sie muß die Genehmigung für Nutzung unter einer eindeutigen Lizenz z.B. CC-BY-SA-3.0 beinhalten und der Dateiname "Image:Willkommen Österreich.jpg" sollte angegeben sein. Eine geeignete Vorlage findest du hier. --GeorgHH 22:51, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Categories message[edit]

Hi, you've placed a message on my talk page about the need to categorize the images in commons because the image Jeffsm.jpg I've uploaded was not categorized yet. Well, I would ignore your comment, but I thought better and I'm going to give you a reply: I have spent 3 hours searching for every-single boxer picture last week in commons and then I have edited every one of them and categorized them accordingly in the 'Boxer (dog)' category. I don't think I deserved this kind of patronizing message on my talk page :-). I know what I'm doing. And uncategorized media in commons does bother me a lot... How can people be so lazy to forget to place a simple category tag on his uploaded files.. (Ooopsss, I just did that too :-). Regards Loudenvier 14:53, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

re: Image Tagging Image:Sinkin'_in_the_Bathtub.jpg[edit]

I uploaded the image from the english Wikipedia. I used the same license (in public domain because its first publication occurred prior to January 1, 1923). But, the cartoon was made in 1930, so it seems the license doesn't apply. Sorry about that, I'm gonna be more careful about that kind of information. Soulreaper 01:24, 21 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi, GeorgHH. The permission text in the information box says in Russian that the Deputy Director of the company from whose website the image was taken licenses its use. It claims that a copy of the permission letter was sent to . However, I don't know whether this is sufficient since: first, it doesn't appear there's any mention of a response from the permissions address; second, the right to use the image may be limited to educational purposes ("В просветительских целях"), whereas Wikimedia images must also be licensed for commercial use; and finally, it doesn't appear the uploader is the creator of the image (I may be wrong about that), so I don't see on what basis he can license it GFDL -- {{Copyrighted free use}} maybe? --Dutch Uncle(talk)/(On English Wikipedia) 18:04, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello Dutch Uncle, thank you very much for your translation of the given permission statement. I've tagged this and other files by User:Vladimir-sergin for missing permission. I saw the email link, but as today it was not confirmed by a OTRS volunteer, so I assume no permission email was send. The uploader now have seven days to clarify the license status and the required permission. --GeorgHH 18:27, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Hi again, Hi, GeorgHH. Alas, I can't speak Russian. I just ran the text through the translator at . --Dutch Uncle(talk)/(On English Wikipedia) 20:27, 23 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi GeorgHH,

I just wanted to say thanks for tagging the images I uploaded from other Wikiprojects (Image:Wikipedia-logo-sco.png and Image:Wikipedia-logo-nov.png). I wasn't sure what the copyright status should be on those, but I'll be sure to add the {{CopyrightByWikimedia}} tags from now on. Thanks again! --jonny-mt(t)(c) 07:31, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Ring 2 Holstenstraße.jpg[edit]

Mal eine Frage zu diesem Bild. Laut Beschreibung ist die Blickrichtung nach Norden/Elbe. Das kann nicht sein, denn dann müßtest Du Dich ja südlich der Elbe befunden haben, was - wenn mich meine geographischen Kenntnisse nicht völlig täuschen ;-) - auf dem gesamten Ring 2 nicht der Fall ist. --Mogelzahn 19:15, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Hhmm, soviel zu meinem Orientierungssinn... ;-) Das Bild ist am Bahnhof Holstenstraße aufgenommen, der Blick geht Richtung Elbe (soweit richtig), also nach Süden. Hab's geändert. Gruß --GeorgHH 19:22, 28 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi Georg, Looks like the POlish Group reached conclusion in our disscussion regarding that image. Please read the discussion. I would be much obliged if you could remove the copyright violation objection you have put forward if , ofcourse,you agree with the findings.Best regards- Yvett Willimas Media2000 the preceding unsigned comment was added by Media2000 (talk • contribs) 02:11, 29.

Hello, Wikipedia itself has no commercial use, but all files stored on Commons must be under a free license that allows anyone to use the material for any purpose, include commercial use and derivative works, see Commons:Licensing#Acceptable licenses.
If you follow the link Resumen de la licencia Creative Commons. on this, you will see that the license is cc-by-nc/2.1/es/ and "nc" means non-commercial. CreativeCommons licenses are allowed on commons only if they allow commercial use and derivative works. --GeorgHH 22:36, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

No problem, that can happen every single day. Cc-by-2.0 is fine for Commons, but is a screenshot. Screnshots are generally not allowed on Commons (see Commons:Licensing#Acceptable licenses) irrespective the license on flickr or somewhere. --GeorgHH 10:43, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Auf Wiedersehen! --Boricuæddie 15:12, 8 December 2007 (UTC)


The welcome template already contains the links you left him. He ignored them and uploaded a copyright violation twice. I think enough warnings had been given at the time and I left him a stronger, final warning. I agree with you; educating is better than threatening, but that user had already been warned. --Boricuæddie 22:59, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

The issue is not that Baltz has claimed that the image violated his personal rights. Baltz himself has sent me a replacement image that I am in the process of clarifying the license. As wikipedia's Biography of living people guideline also applies to images, using an image that the subject feels is not denigrating or disparaging is always preferable.

The Smart Show[edit]

I had meant to do 1=the url, which would demonstrate that the smart show is its own website/show and owns its images. This template is somewhat confusing as "1" is the parameter for reason and without the "1" it becomes a url. The template would be less confusing if the parameters were named, but they are used so often that it would be tough to replace all. I've forgotten how to assign multiple parameters to the same input, but I can figure it out if necessary. Thanks. -- Avi 22:15, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Image deletion[edit]

why did you delete my images from Guapirama in Brazil? It's not from your city and you don't know what is from here... Please, I need to do a good work about my place! the preceding unsigned comment was added by Walmania (talk • contribs) 03:59, 29. Dez. 2007

Hello, the problem is not the city or your work in good faith, but Commons has rules and you should know about them and follow this terms and conditions. The most important pages are our licensing policy and the first steps tutorial, please read it and add required information to your uploads. Then your files will not deleted. If you need help you can ask at Commons:Help desk or contact an Administrator with language knowledge of your country. --GeorgHHtalk   15:52, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:Marita Ulvskog.jpg[edit]

Hallo GeorgHH. Das Bild ist jetzt zwar schon weg, dennoch verstehe ich nicht warum da was nicht gestimmt haben soll. Auf der Homepage der schwedischen Sozialdemokraten stand, dass die Bilder frei sind, solange der Autor genannt wird. Einzig und allein eine kommerzielle Nutzung wurde gänzlich ausgeschlossen, wie immer. Wenn ich mich nicht irre sind Commons und Wikipedia keine kommerziellen Unternehmungen, wieso also wurde das Bild gelöscht? Wäre schön wenn du mir helfen könntest. Grüße, --Hofres 09:03, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Hofres, das grundlegende Prinzip der Commons ist, das alle hier gespeicherten Inhalte unter einer freien Lizenz stehen und von jedem und zu jedem Zweck' verwendet werden dürfen. Das heist erstens, das die Bilder nicht nur in Wikimedia/Wikipedia Projekten verwendet werden können, und zweitens das die Lizenz sowohl Bearbeitungen der Datei als auch die kommerzielle Verwendung gestatten muß (siehe Commons:Lizenzen). Zu dem Bild Image:Marita Ulvskog.jpg und anderen hilft dir vielleicht auch diese alte Löschdiskussion: Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Members of the Riksdag. --GeorgHHtalk   16:10, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:HomeBanner.jpg and Image:Wire99 1.JPG[edit]

Hi. About the first image, I've found it here. It's indicated that it has been released in the Public Domain, so I thought I could upload it on commons. Was I wrong? Sorry but I'm not an expert in licencing problems. Maybe I could upload it with another license? Could you tell me in that case? About the second one, I've found it [3] and it's indicated that it's under GFDL, so I don't understand at all... Could you explain what I've done wrong and whatever else I should have done please? Sorry, just I've told you I thought there would be no matter. Please excuse my poor english... Xic667 17:59, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello, my answer for Image:Wire99_1.JPG is given here.
The problem with Image:HomeBanner.jpg is the missing link to the image source and to the license text. Without that we can't verify that the PD license is correct. --GeorgHHtalk   18:42, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Hallo DaB, ich weiß nicht recht was du möchtest das ich dir schreiben soll. Gibt es da etwas geheimnisvolles? Noch einmal werde ich das Bild nicht wiederherstellen - auch wenn ich die angegebene Begründung nicht der wahre Grund zu sein scheint.

Hi, GeorgHH. Thank you for your messages. I still believe the images should be deleted. They are confusing and misleading. It is my fault that I uploaded them in the first place and I'm sorry for this. I should have showed them to a mirage specialist before the uploading and not after. If for some reason the images would be kept, I believe the names should be changed because once again it is not a mirage. Sorry for the extra work I've created and thank you for your time.BTW as long as I'm writing to you a message anyway, do you know, if there's a way to completely close my Commons account ? I mean delete all my user pages and discontinue my username and password that I would not be able to log in with my user name any more in other words make it like I was never contributing to Commons at all. Of course all the images I've uploaded to Commons, except these two in question should stay. Thank you.--Mbz1 23:29, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello Mbz1, the images will pass through the regular deletion request procedure, possibly they will be renamed.

Hello GeorgHH, The photo I uploaded was taken in 1905, 103 years ago! It's a well known photo of French writer Alain-Fournier who died in 1914, and I can hardly believe the author (who is unknown) may still claim the copyright of it. It's exactly the same case as for the other photo of Alain-Fournier, which is present in Wikimedia Commons: Alain fournier.jpg. I cannot see any difference in copyright matter... Let me know what I can do. --Mtiovinelli 15:54, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello, the author claims the copyright fpr 70 years after his/her death. You can't use {{PD-old}} if you don't know who the photographer was because you in this case don't know his/her date of death. Without that it's not possible to say he/she died 70 years ago. You can try to investigate who the author was, or you can look at Commons:Copyright tags to find a more suitable copyright tag.
BTW: I've tagged Image:Alain fournier.jpg as incomplete file for the same reason. --GeorgHHtalk   16:37, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
I've changed the tag to anonymous-EU. I think this is more suitable.--Mtiovinelli 16:57, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
The policy is that AFAIK that {{PD-old}} can be used if the photo is more than 100 years old. Yann 18:41, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Image:Alain fournier.jpg[edit]


This image was taken between 1901 to 1906, so more than 100 years old. The photographer is unknown, but it is quite obviously in the public domain. Thanks, Yann 18:39, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

I absolutely agree with you. I suggest you the Anonymous-EU tag. It seems to me suitable for those images that are widely known but their author never claimed a copyright, especially when more than a century has passed.--Mtiovinelli 21:23, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. I just uploaded some images and I'm confused about the copyright issues. The images I uploaded are my property - I shot them myself and I created the band poster myself with PhotoShop. What I want to do is make them available for use on Wiki articles, etc. with photo credit given to me. Is that possible? If I have to, I will simply release them to the public domain (I am not a professional photographer). Can you tell me what I need to do to make the image copyrights correct?

Thank you David Ellman 20:39, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello David, I've removed the warnings. Posters and promational images are problematical because they mostly are copyrighted and for this reason normaly not allowed on Commons, see Commons:Licensing. To confirm that you are the creator and copyright holder, I suggest you to send a permission with a text like this one to the email address given at Commons:OTRS. Then a permission ID number will be added to your images, and they don't run the risk of deletion. --GeorgHHtalk   21:10, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Weiter Bilder löschen[edit]

Moin GeorgHH, ich habe bei Sulmona versucht eine gewisse Ordnung hinzubekommen und mich dabei etwas vertan. Jetzt würde ich es gerne wieder "gerade rücken", hier meine Idee:

Image:Sulmona 109.jpg löschen da ich es doppelt hochgeladen habe.
Die Bilder Image:Sulmona 66.jpg, Image:Sulmona 67.jpg und Image:Sulmona 68.jpg hatte ich doppelt in der 100teren Nummer hoch geladen aber vergessen sie wieder löschen zu lassen. Ich wollte alle Bilder ab 100 für den Friedhof reservieren, aber leider wurden einige gelöscht und die niedrigen Nummer behalten. Frage: Die Bilder so lassen oder versuchen die Bilder umzubenennen? Sorry für meine Leichen im Keller, habe wenig Zeit und will dann doch so viel machen ;-). Aber wie ist Deine Meinung? Tschüß --Ra Boe 00:02, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Commons prohibited file names[edit]

Image:JPG.jpeg and 'kin' -- this is one of those really simple and good ideas. I mentioned that here when I first saw it but did not follow through at that time.

If the images could display in the category -- it should be really easy to get rid of the images where the uploader did not see the warning or whatever reason that images get uploaded in those awkward namespaces.

It is (or should be) like managing a public land or a public service, huh? Where the easiest solution to make it so everything is nice for the main purpose is the best.

In college, they called this kind of solution 'elegant'. It is a good word for that. Thanks -- carol 15:13, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello Carol, thanks for your approval! The images need not to displayed in the category, I think, because after uploading this warning text images I protect them. If the protection works (I note that it sometimes not work, seems to be a bug), it should not possible to overwrite the file. --GeorgHHtalk   18:40, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Karl Benz redirect to Carl[edit]

Your redirect of the category for Karl Benz has introduced an inconsistency in the ability to find items for Karl Benz -- which is the title of the Wikipedia article on the person born and buried as Karl Benz.

This issue of a spelling variant has been hashed out several times for the article and settled to remain as Karl since all official documents for his birth, honorary doctorate, and the tombstone read Karl... the alternative French spelling which was used for C. Benz Shone, a family held business, to differentiate itself from the stock company is addressed as well. At the time that spelling was in vogue, Karlsruhe was spelled Carlsruhe popularly also.

The official name used by Daimler-Benz is Karl and it is used in their museum as well as all of their public relations on the Internet and in other media. They are the successors of his business that developed the first production automobile, Benz & Cie., which merged with DMG and is still in business under Daimler now. I presume that the successors will continue the long standing tradition. Granted the museum in Ladenburg uses Carl, but that is the name used for the small business that was located in Ladenburg and was unrelated to Benz & Cie and, later, Daimler-Benz, however, even in that museum one will find the official documents that bear the name Karl, right on the walls.

Without knowing that you had only recently changed this, I have made multiple cross-references now in Commons to try to overcome the redirect, but it might be easier to eliminate your redirect instead and put all data and images under the same name as the article... than to have them inaccessible to readers and editors alike. I believe that the commons, media, and articles should agree and would be glad to assist in the reversal of the redirect, if necessary. 83d40m 01:17, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I'll explain my changes for Karl Benz:
  • Before I've made changes, it was a category Carl Benz and a gallery Karl Benz. Different names for gallery and category of the same subject are confusing.
  • The different Wikipedias uses Carl Benz and Karl Benz one half each.
  • Google find a lot more pages for Carl Benz.
For that reasons I harmonize both, gallery and category, to an identical name.
The redirect is to inform users that different spellings of this subject are possible, it imply not that Karl Benz is wrong. We can use only one name for the topic/subject. --GeorgHHtalk   11:02, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I understand your objective, but now all of the images for Karl Benz are missing and there only are two images for Carl Benz. Now a search for Karl Benz goes to those two images for Carl Benz instead of the page with many images for Karl. The images I have used previously are not found under searches in Wikipedia Commons for either name. I have to go to Google to find the images on Wikipedia Commons for Karl Benz that I have used before.

The balance you seek to make is not working, Carl is the only result. If you are going to concentrate to one name, why are you choosing to make it different from the article name, Karl Benz? There are hundreds of cross references to Karl Benz in Wikipedia -- it makes no sense to me to make a category for two images under Carl and suppress numerous images for Karl.

Seems better to have searches for Carl Benz redirect to Karl Benz. Why would we want people to have to go to Google to find the images for Karl Benz in Wikipedia Commons? That is what I have to do since your change. It has cut off my access to images for Karl Benz that used to exist in the commons. 83d40m 22:15, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

The images aren't missing: It's only one click at the link Category: Carl Benz at the bottom of gallery Carl Benz and all the images you think are missed will be displayed. You don't have to go to Google. You are free to add further images to Carl Benz gallery (like this edit) so more than two images are available there.
Second: If you use the search with selection of only images and press the Search button instead of Go the result is eleven hits for "Karl Benz" and 38 for "Carl Benz"!
Finally: Have a look to the file names in Category:Carl Benz, you will see only two images with Karl in the name. --GeorgHHtalk   14:23, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Bitte zwei Bilder umbenennen[edit]

Moin GeorgHH, ich habe gerade eine Nachricht aus Italien bekommen, das diese beiden Bilder einen falschen Namen tragen, Image:Roccascalegna 01.jpg und Image:Roccascalegna 02.jpg zeigen Roccasale und sollten somit auch mit Image:Roccacasale 01.jpg und Image:Roccacasale 02.jpg benannt werden. würde mich freuen wenn Du Zeit findest diese beiden Bilder umzubenennen, ich kann gerade nicht auf die Originale zurückgreifen und ein zweites Mal diese Datei hochladen in der Qualität sicher abträglich.

Hmm, in it.wikipedia gibt es nur den Artikel Roccascalegna. Die Suche nach "Roccasale" in der italienischen Wikipedia bringt 0 Treffer, mit Google gerade mal 150 (die ich nicht weiter geprüft habe). So erscheint mir die Umbennung eher unangebracht, es wäre nett wenn Du das nochmal klärst. Wenn es dann OK ist werd ich Dir die Bilder umbenennen.

Hello, it looks that the permission is only for use in zh.wikipedia. But files on Commons must be allowed to use anywhere also out of Wikipedia/Wikimedia, see Commons:Licensing#Acceptable_licenses at "The following restrictions must not apply to the image or other media file" point one. --GeorgHHtalk   12:00, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, I got it. This is my first time upload file to Wikimedia Commons. I am sorry for making a mistake. I will try to got the permission definitely from the author again, but I am not sure when I will get reply. Will the image be deleted soon? --Lcwmax 16:54, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
It's no problem if you receive the permission after the image was deleted, an admin or OTRS volunteer can undelete it then. --GeorgHHtalk   07:52, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello GeorgHH, about one month ago I gave a reply on your comment on the page Commons:Deletion_requests/Image:DePuntAnnie_Brouwer.jpg. I now notice your a very busy person on Commons so probably you didn't see it. Can you please see if the deletion request is now enough motivated? Best regards, Robotje 13:30, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello Robotje, I've deleted the image and closed the deletion request. Thank you for remind me! --GeorgHHtalk   14:06, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Re: Image:Computerra cover.jpg[edit]

Hi. Feel free to delete the above image, which was an accidental duplicate of Image:Computerra-cover-706.jpg which had been uploaded some 15 minutes prior due to crossed wires on OTRS. - Mark 04:14, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
