Commons:Deletion requests/File:Emine Ülker Tarhan, Anatolia Party - Izmir.JPG[edit]

Hallo Hedwig, hast du diese Entscheidung auf Basis der FoP-Regelung im türk. Gesetz oder aufgrund der in deiner Summary erwähnten, mehr allgemeinen Erwägung getroffen? Mir ist das konkrete Plakat völlig egal; aber bisher haben wir Wahlplakate, z.B. aus Deutschland, regelmäßig unter genau der Rationale gelöscht, mit der ich diese DR begründet hatte. --Túrelio (talk) 06:58, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

@Túrelio: Ja, mehr allgemeine Erwaegung. IMHO ist hat ein Wahlplakat ein Mindesthaltbarkeitsdatum. Im normalen Wahlverfahren ca. 1 oder max. zwei Wochen nach Ende der Wahl(en). In besonderen Faellen, z.B. Todesfall eines Kandidaten waehrend der Wahl, ein besonderer Skandal Smile, kann dieses Datum natuerlich verschieben. Unter extremen Umstaenden kann ein Plakat auch als so wichtig angesehen werden, dass es kein Verfalldatum mehr hat und die normalen Fristen einsetzen. Soweit meine Ueberlegung. Fallig foelsch? Clin. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:40, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Nein, um ralsch oder fichtig geht es mir weniger, sondern darum, wenn deine Rationale einer etwas breiteren Diskussion standhält, könnten auch in Deutschland aufgehängte Wahlplakate bleiben (jedenfalls solange bis das EP die FoP abgeschafft hat). Es geht also um nichts weniger als einen Paradigmenwechsel. --Túrelio (talk) 06:27, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Stehe vollkommen dahinter. Es ist einfach eine logische Schlussfolgerung. Ich muss aber gestehen, dass ich vermutlich Wahlplakate frueher geloescht habe. Das wird mir sicherlich um die Ohren gehauen. Clin Wir sollten das oeffentlich diskutieren und dann Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Permanent_vs_temporary entsprechend erweitern. Stecken wir das auf com:VP/C oder eine eigene Projektseite? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 07:34, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Da wir in der :de-Community einige versierte Juristen haben, würde ich das Thema erst einmal nur :de-mäßig diskutieren, weil es sich dann auf 3 Jurisdiktionen (D, A, CH) beschränkt. Das könnte man direkt auf :de machen oder auf Commons mit einer ausreichenden Einladung auf :de. --Túrelio (talk) 08:03, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
@Túrelio: Ich wuerde Commons bevorzugen. Es betrifft uns hier mehr als dewiki und die meisten dewikindianer sind ja eh hier. Bin gespannt was Histo diesmal ablaesst. Clin. Nochwas: Unsere Policy wuerde sich ggf. aendern, wenn auf de diskutiert muessen (muessten) wir das hier wiederholen. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:54, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
@Túrelio: Hast Du bereits etwas angeruehrt? :-)) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 18:01, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Hi Hedwig, leider nein. Bis ich Sonntag in Urlaub fahre, werde ich das auch nicht mehr schaffen. Mögliche location: Commons:Village pump/Copyright. --Túrelio (talk) 07:50, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Wurde Dein Urlaub genehmigt? Wo ist die RfVacation Disc? Clin Wenn ich dazu komme, bastel ich etwas auf einer Unterseite zusammen. Ich wuerde Dich gerne bei der Diskussion dabei haben. Schoenen Urlaub!! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 14:55, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Clyde Tombaugh photograph[edit]

FYI:There's a discussion in progress regarding the deletion of a 1928 photograph of Clyde Tombaugh, the discoverer of Pluto. It's at Commons:Deletion requests/File:ClydeTombaugh2.gif‎, have a look. --Marshallsumter (talk) 03:02, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! I left a comment, IMHO {{PD-US-no notice}} applies. Best, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:20, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Temporary undeletion of Commons:Permission to edit or submit to Wikimedia projects in order to move it to a user subpage of mine on Meta[edit]

As you closed the Undeletion Request I made regarding this essay, I thought I'd ask you first. Would you be willing to temporarily undelete it so I can move it to a user subpage of mine on Meta (where I agree it would be more appropriate than on Commons, as it's not specific to Commons or images). Thank you. JesseW (talk) 03:57, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

@JesseW: ✓ Done . Let me know when you're done. Thanks, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:04, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Seems like you haven't been online a few minutes after your request. I took the liberty to create a new subpage for you on Meta: m:User:JesseW/Permission to edit or submit to Wikimedia projects. Best regards, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 05:09, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, that was exactly what I wanted. Much appreciated. JesseW (talk) 05:21, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

User: Nuevosaires & files[edit]

Hi, Hedwig, I see you followed up on my speedy deletion nominations of several files by Nuevosaires. You are fast! Two things: 1.) I just looked through my own "Contributions" list and I do not see my own nominations of these files for speedy deletion— I found this very strange. Usually each nomination I make shows up as a record, even of a file that is eventually deleted, in my list of contributions, but not this time for these files. Do you know why this might be the case? 2.) I see you marked the user's talk page with a "last warning" template for copyright violations. I doubt the account will ever be used again for anything anyway, butI wanted to ask if this rather harsh level of warning might not have been a bit strong-armed, given that all of these images were the user's first contributions to Commons and that, as far as I can tell, he/ she had never been formally warned before about their unsuitability (but maybe there is a sockpuppet involved or something else I do not know about— or maybe some previous files had been deleted and, like my own contributions page, had not created a record of being deleted). I am asking for my own edification, not to doubt your actions: if I am ever an admin myself someday I want to be able to explain placing such a "last time" warning on a user's talk page that never appears to have had a "first time" warning. Can you help me out with this? Thank you! KDS4444 (talk) 05:49, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi! Sure can do. Smile 1) It is in the log: [1]. 2) Well, yes and no. <- Good ey? Clin I could have given a first warning, sure. But from the feel of it I thought it's a one-time account uploading some images found somewhere. Sometimes those come back with a vengeance and reuploading the same stuff or even new copyvios.
So, the final warning is in, nobody can say blocked outside proper procedure. Summing up: Some things just go be gut-feeling, comes after some time using the admin-buttons automatically. I guess it is some kind of profiling as well. Not by race, rather by theme of upload. E.g. one actor photo -> deleted, forget about it. A whole bunch, warning if first time or block if second(+) or a lot of uploads. A lot is measured by gut again. Wow, „self analysis complete. Functioning within established parameters.“ lol --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 21:36, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Felice Casson photo[edit]

Hello, I found the license photos for File:Felice_Casson.jpg (http://dati.senato.it/home), can yuo restore the photo? Thank You --Bepivenezian (talk) 07:57, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done Excellent! I added the source, license, and archived the website via wayback machine. Maybe you could some more categories? Birth year/place, political party, and and and... Thanks! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 08:09, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

You deleted my photos about Alpàa voice[edit]

Hi! You deleted my photos yesterday about Alpàa voice. It is old photo made by my father that i scan last week. The license is free because it is my and only my work! Can you reload these photos please? Thank you!

Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). Thank you.
Well, you contradict yourself. A photo made by your father can't be your own work, can it? Which photo are you exactly talking about? There are 9 deleted files. Let me know and then we can work on a solution together. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 23:54, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Excuse me for my bad english, i wrote by phone yesterday. The files are:
Spettacolo_di_folklore_al_"Parco_della_Consolata",_Alpàa_1977.jpg
intrattenimenti_delle_edizioni_dei_primi_anni_'80.jpg
Enrico_Ruggeri_ad_Alpàa_1999.jpg Malandrino_e_Veronica_in_concerto_nel_1991.jpg

L'Alpàa_nel_1994.jpgL'Alpàa_nel_1985.jpg
These are old photos made in 1970s and 1980s years by my father. Last week i found these and i scanned to upload to attach Alpàa voice. I didn't stole copyright about these photos because these are family memories. I hope i was clear now. I wait your response. Thank you! --AAE86 (talk) 15:12, 24 July 2015 (UTC)


Don't worry, your English is much better than my Italian! Smile I have to ask you one more thing: Is your father still alive? Then he is the copyright owner and only he can release the photos. Or in the sad case that your father passed on, did you inherit the photographs? Either way, one of you needs to send an email with permission. See instructions here: Com:OTRS/it. Thanks for your work here and on itwiki. Best, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:52, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I undestand! Can you give me your e-mail please? My father will send you "release?" (in italian "liberatoria") about these photos. Thank you, bests regards! 95.232.69.217 12:18, 28 July 2015 (UTC)AAE86
Please send the permission to: permissions-commons@wikimedia.org AFTER(!) reading Com:OTRS/it. If you need help from an Italian speaker, please let me know and I'll hook you up. :-) Best, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:04, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Perfect, my father sent e-mail as you tell me. I hope that solve this problem. I wait your response, bests! AAE86 (talk) 16:35, 1 August 2015 (UTC)AAE86

Re:From Russia with Love[edit]

Well, this specific logo seems bellow the COM:TOO, considering the Communist emblem consist just in common forms. I suggets to be more careful when tagging for speedy in mass, some false positives would appear like this (specially if is tagged with {{PD-Textlogo}}); in these cases, I think is better a DR (unless the logo is too complex). --Amitie 10g (talk) 02:17, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, that is a problem with mass deletes, one may hit an innocent one. Thanks for keeping an eye on the shop! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:26, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Review Request[edit]

Hello dear administrator,

I have uploaded some old images and I have licensed them as well but I'm not sure that Wikimedia accepts them or not. These images are very important for Kurdish people history and in order to use them on wikipedia. Can you please take a look at them and tell me if I have done it the right way or not? because I want to upload many images from the same source which is (The Foundation For Kurdish Library & Museum) and all of these images's copyrights have expired that is why I'm free to upload them. Please inform me about them, Thanks. --Diyar Muhammed (talk) 17:46, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Could you please give me an example? A link to one or two images you want to upload would be good. I'll try my best. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 08:08, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

ː Thanks, Here are some examples

--Diyar Muhammed (talk) 11:14, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! I changed the infoboxes and the licenses a little bit, please have a look. The photo of Cigerxwin from 1975 can't be 70 years old, can it? Clin You have to be more careful with the licenses, if the photo isn't taken 70 years ago, you can't claim it is. Same with photographers: If the photographer is unknown, you can't say he died 50 or 70 years ago. Let me know if you have any questions. Best, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:00, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

That Korean Fire Dpt[edit]

The archived discussion with "per nom and Jim" occurs on Commons:Deletion_requests/2015/07/17 at least three times. Please fix this since my hardware can barely load that page and editing it is a distant dream. The first four batches are under identical subtitles and located on a subpage with the same title. Subtitles should have differences if only to check if they're transcluded too many times on the daily rfd page. --Pitke (talk) 21:04, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

My bad, I used VFC and didn't pay enuf attention. IF I have to, I'll cancel all DRs and start over. Sorry for stress-testing your hardware. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 07:04, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Turkish Airlines destinations map[edit]

Hello, Hedwig in Washington! I've added information about the source of the map. I'd thank if you could give me back a feedback about it, concerning to if the information is enough or not and, in this case, what further information shall be added. Thanks a lot for your attention. Viet-hoian1 (talk) 15:36, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done I think it is ok now. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:05, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of photograph in Teddy Rasson article[edit]

Hello, You apparently deleted - without notice - the photograph of the Teddy Rasson article. Did you properly consider my response to the deletion request, and what were your conclusions, and motives for deletion?

Hello, This concerns your deletion earlier this month (on the 4th I believe), following a request by user steinsplitter, of the photograph in the Teddy Rasson articleTeddy Rasson. This was done without notice, and I have no indication that proper consideration was given to the lengthy arguments I gave in response to the deletion request. Is this normal Wikipedia procedure? What is your expertise on copyright rules? It took effort to build my article, and later defend it against Mr. steinsplitter's initiatives, and it is, I believe, legitimate to expect equal effort in justifying decisions that challenge my work. I intend to get to the bottom of this matter. Looking forward to your comments. --Urrr10 (talk) 11:44, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

The case, with the information provided so far, is clear. Commons:Deletion requests/File:Capitaine Teddy Rasson.jpg states: © Monique Rasson. Since it is not you, the photo is not yours to uploads and license freely. You need permission to do so. Please read Com:L for more information. BTW: It is second time that this file got deleted.
We on Commons are only a media repository, we have little to do with the other projects.I absolutely believe that you put a lot of effort into your article, but your blood, sweat, and tears have nothing to do with the copyright. Further: proper notice was given that the file is under investigation for copyright violation. If you still think the deletion was unjust, you can do two things: 1) Request an undelete review. Given the evidence so far I see not much chance of success. 2) Give me some more information: How did you obtain the photograph? When exactly was the photograph created? Who is the photographer, where did this person create the photo, and last but not least, what nationality is the photographer? Let me know which way you would like to go. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 19:16, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. I need to stress again, as I wrote in my response to the deletion request, that the information given by user "steinsplitter" was not clear at all, that he proved unable to communicate in proper English, much less French, that his behavior bordered on hostility, and that he made no effort whatsoever to clarify his request, using half-sentences and cryptic jargon that may have been understandable to someone accustomed to Wikipedia parlance, but not to a regular user. I wasn't aware of the "(c) Monique Rasson" stamp. Well you might be interested to know that she is Teddy Rasson's daughter. Monique Rasson is my mother. I am Teddy Rasson's grandson. After her divorce my mother took back her maiden name. There should be a number of genealogy sites enabling verification of this, if necessary (i.e. in case you ask, am I really who I say I am?) I can provide a link.

There had been considerable interest in the life and actions of my grandfather and commemorations to honor him in Alsace in the past few years up to the 70th Anniversary of the Armistice in May this year, and I helped my mother and local actors a good deal with research and other things, including on the Internet, which my mother could not do. The picture has been in my grandmother's papers since 1944. As stated in so many words in the description, it was taken at the Liberation of Paris, Place St-Michel, on August 24, 1944. Quite obviously, the author - anonymous - was French, and "created" the photograph in Paris. This should be self-explanatory, provided one can read French - hence the perils of attempting to censor articles in languages one doesn't understand; steinsplitter went so far as stating the photo's description was not clear: the description specifies who, where and when and could not be clearer, unless of course you don't know French. Which, as you will certainly agree, is anything but professional. At the same time, big words are brandished such as "under investigation for copyright violation". Proper notice may have been given about that fact, but it does not seem like anybody bothered to read my lengthy response to that notice.

How did we come into possession of the photograph? Quite simply, the anonymous author, a Parisian who had come to greet Leclerc's soldiers at the Liberation, sent the photograph at my grandparents' address at the time (given to him by my grandfather) once the picture had been processed. It has been in the family ever since, and that's all there is to it. Finally, the photograph was published previously in the periodical Pays d'Alsace, issue N° 239, May 2012, referenced in the Wikipedia article. For your reference, large sections of the Pays d'Alsace article, including the contentious picture, are reproduced with permission at http://2db.forumactif.com/t1283-capitaine-teddy-rasson-dit-robert-trevoux.

Considering the above it is my sincere hope that you will positively consider restoring the picture. I remain at your disposal should you require additional information. Sincerely,

J. Urvoy --Urrr10 (talk) 13:45, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Urrr10, here are some things worth reading:

We are having several problems right now. The author is unknown, but still retains the copyright for 70 years after first(!) publication. First publication in 2012 (still under copyright!) + 70 years = protected until the end of 2082. The 25 year protection for posthumous works is not valid because we don't know if / when the author died. We can't claim no author disclosure according to EU law either, since the image hasn't been published more than 70 years ago. Last, and in this case least: The photograph wasn't in the public domain in France on the URAA date (1.1.1996), therefore it is not free according to United States copyright law. We on Commons have to abide to the local AND the US copyright laws (the servers are in the US) Two things you can do:

  1. Dig a little and find an earlier publication date that might enable us to restore the file earlier.
  2. You can upload this photograph on certain wikis that allow fair use. Here is a list that should be pretty much up to date: Fair use wikis Unfortunately the French wiki doesn't allow this kind of photographs, but the English one does.

In the meantime, I'll do some investigating myself, hoping we can find a way to keep the photograph of a person who certainly should be covered here. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:22, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

@Urrr10: We have a solution: Since neither you or anybody else in your family is the true copyright holder, the 2012 publication is not a legal publication and can't be applied. In 2012 the photo was still under copyright. Therefore the copyright of this photograph expired 2014 (1944+70). See, you've been tooooo honest! Smile URAA doesn't apply either, since, technically, it wasn't published. I'll restore the photo and make the necessary changes. Thanks for a great addition to the collection! Best regards, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:23, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Undelete request for file Michelle Beautiful Picture.jpg[edit]

As a matter of fact, that photo was not ever shown on Michelle Chen's FB pages, at least not on the pages open to the public. My opinion of this fact is that the description of "FB" as a source was just a casual mindless mistake. Maybe the uploader should have specified it as "own work" or other types of description. This could result from a lack of skills in using computers. If that photo was an original work, and it was uploaded to be a free content on commons, the technical mistake should not have been used to disqualify it. The author/copyright holder of that photo was specified as Michelle Chen when it was uploaded. I assumed that claim is a true claim. JW19335762743 (talk) 13:34, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Fact is, the source given was Facebook and FB is not a valid source. There's no compatible license associated with this image. The uploader has to proof that free license exists, author named or not. The only way to undelete this image is to contact the author and ask for permission. See OTRS for information/instruction. Sorry --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:55, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Files from the Seoul Metropolitan Fire and Disaster Headquarters[edit]

Hallo Hedwig, du hast vor ein paar Tagen Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Files from the Seoul Metropolitan Fire and Disaster Headquarters gelöscht (hab's erst jetzt gesehen und nicht vorher den DR) und jetzt hängen 200+ Dateien als incomplete DR in der Luft, siehe Category:Incomplete deletion requests - missing subpage.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Phenacetin synthesis BAYER 1888.jpg[edit]

Hallo Hedwig in Washington. Dein zweiter Satz ist (im dortigen Zusammenhang) schlicht falsch: Rastergrafiken werden nicht per se gelöscht, falls eine SVG-Grafik vorhanden ist. In einem DR ist dies jedoch kein Argument mehr, dort wird der individuelle Fall berücksichtigt. Wie auch für Nicht-Chemiker unschwer zu erkennen ist, handelt es sich beim obigen Fall zudem nicht um eine Vektorisierung, sondern um eine Neuzeichnung. Übrigens: Schau dir mal die JPG-Grafik (bei welcher zudem der DR-Baustein noch enthalten ist) in voller Auflösung an. --Leyo 16:36, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
