Eulenburg deleted file
Re: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Philipp-Fuerst-von-Eulenburg_%281847-1921%29.jpg We have the same problem (unknown authorship) also for these pictures from the same scandal and the same years:
Philipp zu Eulenburg-Hertefeld.jpg
Moltke, Kuno von (1847-1923) sett 1900 a Costantinopoli - Atelier Walsleben Breslau.jpg
Kuno von Moltke.jpg
- Thanks for the notice. While this is by no means "official" policy, i wouldn't press the first one for example: with a creation date of 1882 it would be unlikely enough (for my preferences), that the author died 70+ years ago (adding 50 years should make this safe enough for all images created before 1893). Also for some pictures it may be possible to claim "PD-anonymous" for Germany. Two facts must be shown: the file has to be published 70+ years ago and there must be some evidence/proof, that the author's name wasn't disclosed in the publication (or they used a pseudonym for an unknown real author). Hope that info helps a bit, but i am not going to nominate those images myself. GermanJoe (talk) 13:21, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
- Please remind to always answer on the discussion page of the writer, not on yours, otherwise the writer could now know you answered.
- I know the rules very well, and they apply both on the image you nominated and on those I called your attention upon. Since you don't want to nominate them (why?) I made myself a page with several cases similar to the one you nominated, please cast your vote for their deletion. Thank you.
