Just to let you know that the permission for this file was disputed. If no new permission is given then the file will be most likely deleted. --Zureks (talk) 20:48, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

File:Mark Hamill (1978).jpg

Hello. Why did you change the license for File:Mark Hamill (1978).jpg from cc-by-2.0 to cc-by-3.0? I followed the link to the original Flickr page and the stated license is cc-by-2.0; I didn't see an indication that the photographer had changed or updated the license. Thanks for your attention.

File:Hillary Clinton video greeting.jpg

Hi. You have entered a notice on lack of permission on this picture. I am in doubt. The picture is from the Labour Party National Convention. At this meeting I took hundreds of pictures of speakers and other participants. A lot of those are uploaded. One of the speakers was Hillary Clinton, but as she was not present, her speech (a tribute to former party leader Brundtland on the occasion of her 70th birtday) was presented on video. I understand that the video produscing company or the Labour Party might have rights to the video. On the other hand it seems odd that the presentation form itself should put this picture in another licence category than those of speakers present.

However, this is not an important picture, and I will not spend time on getting any permissions, so feel free to delete it if you should decide that to be necessary. Regards, --GAD (talk) 07:39, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Flickr reviewing

Hello Hekerui, and thank you for your application to be a flickr reviewer. The application has been removed as successful, and you've been added to the list of reviewers. Congratulations! Please see Commons:Flickr images if you haven't done so already, and the backlogs at Category:Flickr images needing human review and Category:Flickr review needed. A helpful script for easy-tagging flickr images is at importScript('User:Patstuart/Flickrreview.js'); (which you can add to your monobook.js), and you can add {{user reviewer}} or {{user trusted}} to your user page if you wish. –Juliancolton | Talk 15:50, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I couldnt understand the license details given in the above file. Can u clarify it?

Do we allow to publish such DVD cover in Commons? --Vssun (talk) 08:08, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

An out of topic question

Please look at this image at mlwiki. As it contains Microsoft Windows/IE elements & wikipedia logo, what will be the suitable license to be used? Presently it has been uploaded in mlwiki with CCBYSA 2.5 license. Please convey your view. Regards --Vssun (talk) 11:25, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks again. And I am wondering, how did u reached the exact deletion request page?. --Vssun (talk) 13:05, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

A question on the OTRS noticeboard...

Answering the question: we currently have an almost 30-days backlog (~580 e-mails) and indeed are handling the tickets from December 2009. Sad it is, but true, unfortunately. Please provide any information about the e-mail in question (e.g. the e-mail address it was sent from, the subject of the e-mail or such) and I will handle it in a few hours' time. odder (talk) 09:18, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Copyright Doubt

Hi,

I am a sysop at the Malayalam Wikipedia. Could you help me with some copyright clarification? My basic doubt is this : A user uploads a photo on Flickr saying it is copyrighted to him. Later he uploads the same photo to Wikipedia with a Creative commons license. Is this acceptable under Wikipedia policy? Where is the policy page regarding this?

My personal belief is that the original creator of the work can change the license from unfree to free anytime. But I am unsure. I would really appreciate it if you could help in this regard - some pictures have been proposed for deletion on Malayalam Wikipedia due to this. Could you reply on my talk page in Malayalam Wikipedia?

Thanks and best wishes -- Razimantv (talk) 15:37, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi,

Thanks - That was fast. Here are the five images in consideration : 1 2 3 4 5

They can be found on Flickr at : 1 2 3 4 5.

I am pretty sure that the two people are the same. On his user page Mithu has said that his flickr profile is this one. Also in each photo uploaded he has said that the photo has been taken by himself. I wasn't sure whether it is all right if someone uploads a photo as copyrighted/noncommercial etc on flickr and later without those restrictions on Wikipedia.

Thanks and best wishes -- Razimantv (talk) 16:12, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much. You helped a lot -- Razimantv (talk) 16:23, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Kategorien resp. Category:Ravi Shankar

Übertrag aus meiner Diskussionsseite: "1) Das meiste von dem was du machst is sehr gut! 2) Du fügst aber ne Menge nicht existierender und redundanter Kategorien ein, das stopft die Seiten voller als es sein muss. lg Hekerui (talk) 09:31, 12 February 2010 (UTC)"

Kurzantwort (Versionsgeschichte): "danke, zur Kenntnis genommen, aber der Inhalt Deiner Nachricht bleibt etwas im Unklaren"
Hallo. Ich hinterlasse noch einmal eine Nachricht, trotz des irritierenden "nur in dringenden Fällen" - was ist ein dringender Fall? Das klingt eher wie: bitte niemals benachrichtigen. Wenn du störende Emailbenachrichtigungen bekommst, dass jemand die Seite ändert, kannst du die auch ausschalten. Jedenfalls, wo steht das geschrieben, dass die Seiten unwichtig sind und stattdessen interwikilinks auf die Kategories gehören? Danke Hekerui (talk) 11:17, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Hallo Hekerui,
Zuerst danke ich Dir, dass Du mich in meiner Muttersprache kontaktiert hast, was ich sehr zu schätzen weiss.
Konkret scheint es Dir um 1) diese Versionsänderung und 2) diesen nachträglichen Edit (beide 12.2.2010) bei Category:Ravi Shankar zu gehen; warum das nicht gleich von Anfang an unmissverständlich erwähnen ;-)
(während der letzten 24 Stunden hatte ich schätzungsweise 250 Edits vorgenommen und rund 20 Dateien hochgeladen)
Jedem von uns darf es im Verlauf einer langen Nacht mal passieren, bei den verschachtelten Kategorien "voller als nötig" zu kategorisieren respektive konkret zu übersehen, dass "Vocalists from India" eine Unterkategorie von "Musicians from India" ist und einige zusätzliche aus Deiner Sicht redundanter Kategorien zu verwenden ...
Aus meiner Sicht sind solche Kleinigkeiten kommentarlos zu berichtigen, ohne gleich eine "Benutzerdiskussion" in der o.e. Weise als "dringlich" zu erachten :-(
Dein Versionskommentar "rm interwikilinks redundant to page, cleanup categories" ist aus meiner Sicht mit "thx... but galleries are 'additions' to the more relevant categories, "non-redundant" categories/iwl's re-established: "red" categories will be done from time to time, as always done before ;-)" hinreichend beantwortet, zudem mit Category:Padma Vibhushan recipients eine der vorgängig zwei "roten Kategorien" mittlerweile in einer Kaffeepause erstellt ist ;-)
Im übrigen sei auf die für mich zentralen Hilfeseiten unter Categorisation verwiesen — ich habe mit keinem Wort auch nur angedeutet, dass "Seiten unwichtig sind und stattdessen interwikilinks auf die Kategories gehören".
Um auf Deine "Interpretationen" zu meinem Diskussionsverhalten einzugehen:
Meine Tätigkeit innerhalb von commons ist auf der Benutzerseite unmissverständlich umrissen, ebenso, dass mir die Zeit für Diskussionen schlichtweg fehlt: Entweder Kategorisieren & Uploaden oder "Diskutieren"; für beides zusammen reicht meine Freizeit nicht aus. Interpretationen zu meinem "Diskussionsbedarf" sind unnötig und wirken beleidigend.
Zum andern ist Englisch die "Haussprache" in Wikimedia commons, und mein Englisch (siehe Babelbausteine) ist offen gesagt im Verständnis ganz passabel, im Schreiben und insbesondere Wahrnehmen von sprachlichen Feinheiten doch sehr beschränkt, weshalb ich "Diskussionen" zusätzlich auf wirklich "Wichtiges" beschränke. Welche "Themen" das üblicherweise sind, geht ebenfalls aus den Diskussionsseiten deutlich hervor.
Zudem steht es jeder/jedem Commons-NutzerInnen frei, sich auf der eigenen Benutzerseite zu erbeten, dass sich "Gäste" an die "Hausregeln" halten sollten, imho eine Frage der "Nettiquette".
"Wichtig" sind für mich persönlich im übrigen Löschanträge von "own works", allfällige Korrekturen von Bildbeschreibungen, Bilderwünsche aus meinen "Spezialgebieten" (siehe Benutzerseite) und ggf. Lizenzfragen; alles andere gehört meines Erachtens auf die Diskussionsseiten von Galerien, Kategorien und ggf. Bildbeschreibungen oder eben Versionskommentare, sodass es jederfrau überlassen bleibt, ob sie/er sich daran beteiligt oder auch nicht ;-)
Nichts für ungut bitte, nimm bei Category:Ravi Shankar bitte die Dir passend erscheinenden Änderungen vor, im übrigen habe ich ja an der Galerieseite nichts geändert.
Abschliessende lg aus dem Spital (wortwörtlich), Roland zh 17:51, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Again a doubt from ml wiki

@w:ml:പ്രമാണം:Virat vishwakaram with manu, maya, twasta, shilpi, viswagna.jpg

The above image has been nominated for deletion from ml wiki. Actually this artwork is published in 1931. But we don't know the death date of the artist. Can we take its publication date for counting the copyright expiry, if the death date of artist is not known? With warm regards. --Vssun (talk) 04:51, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your fast response. --Vssun (talk) 15:46, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Category:Dong Ho painting

Hi, you've just tagged the whole Category:Dong Ho painting as unsourced. In fact they are traditional products that dated back to 18th or even 17th century (you can check from verified source in en:Dong Ho painting) so I think there's no problem about copyright for those pictures. About the original source, the problem is that the user who uploaded them was not active at Wikipedia for a very long time so I'm afraid that it's impossible to ask that user for the source that he/she used to upload. Could you help me to find out a reasonable way to keep those pictures? For example, can I use a source such as this one to represent the source of uploading? Thank you. Grenouille vert (talk) 20:37, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files from Bob Bobster on Flickr

Hi Hekerui! Bob Bobster (bobster855) on Flickr is known to upload files created by others, marking them with licenses that he has no legal right to release them under, and failing to credit the actual authors. The account is therefore listed as an unreliable source at Commons:Questionable Flickr images.

I have initiated a review of all files taken from this Flickr user that I could find. Since you uploaded one or more of those files to Commons, you may wish to comment at Commons:Deletion requests/Files from Bob Bobster on Flickr. It is possible that some of the files should be kept, but even most of the ones that may be okay to keep need to have their authorship, licensing and other information corrected.

Adding pnb to Template:Translation table

Hi Hekerui! I'm not officially in charge of this template. You should put your request on the template's talk page with and {{editprotected}} tag since it is protected. If people are reluctant to edit this complicated template, I may do the change myself as I know it quite well. But first, you have to create a {{pnb}} template similar to the {{en}} template. This, I can not do it myself since I don't know how "Western Panjabi" is written in the Western Panjabi language.Xavier, 23:49, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Oops, no need to know Panjabi writing. I've created the {{pnb}} template (please check). Now, I'm going to ask for the modification of {{translation table}}. — Xavier, 00:25, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Category:Centuries in India

Übertrag von [User talk:Roland zh]: Sei so nett und tagge Bilder die nur ein "ca." als Datum haben mit der passenden Kategorie, z.B. bei "ca. 1930" besser "Category:India in the 1930s" als "Category:1930 in India". Hekerui (talk) 22:52, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Hallo und dankeschön für den Hinweis, leider erfolgt Dein Einwand etwas spät ;-) Meinerseits ist das "Projekt" Category:Centuries in India. d.h. die Kategorisierung historischer Bilder aus Indien (Category:Historical images of India) aus meiner Sicht bereits vor Deiner Nachricht vollumfänglich abgeschlossen gewesen.
Die Mehrheit "unklarer" ("ca." Datumsangaben) sollte ich wie von Dir erwähnt gehandhabt haben, bei aber vermutlich insgesamt ein bis zwei Tausend nun "Datums-kategorisierten" historischen Bildern werden sich mit Sicherheit Fehler eingeschlichen haben, und so danke ich Dir für die sicherlich ja bereits erfolgte Korrektur im der von Dir gedachten Weise.
btw: Die Einrichtung der Datumsbezogenen Kategorien für das 21. Jahrhundert ist übrigens nur der Vollständigkeit erfolgt und könnte bei allfälligem Interesse (ist meinerseits nicht beabsichtigt) analog beispielsweise Category:Switzerland by month weiter ausgebaut werden.
Mit freundlichen Grüssen, Roland 23:30/23:48, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Deletion of Mpbb images

I'm surprised by you claim (which i didnt see until blacklake deleted recently). The two first pictures have been posted after the third "eolienne narbonne" and you are putting all in the same basket. The latter indeed was a mistake as i thought google earth pics were copyright free and i didn't complain when this one was deleted. But the two first ones are scans from personal family pics (as it shows at the borders). PLease tell me how i have to prove. I understand your claim to overall image deletion is an accusation of general bad faith which I would ask to be more precise since there might have been some wrong assumptions but never bad faith ( even in previously deleted images which were always reported as taken from a website, at the time also thought bot copyrighted, as these correspond to public places) Mpbb (talk) 00:59, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Trying to understand your mixup, i can summarize there had been 4 pics removed by bots (and removed actually because i had been transparent about their source). These have not been reclaimed as i realized they were probably rightfully deleted. Then there were the two added ones from personal stock. Which is the one named "own work" ? i cant recallm but you imply here bad faith so I would ask some prcision. In any case you've mixed the two last with one of the previous 4. So I would ask immediate restituition of Librairie_PB and CdlLL_PB since your accusation is both imprecise and mixed, what is serious specially if you are asking overall deletion.

For hundreds of thousands Flickr imports, we have the license in the first position (most important), followed by the validation of the license.

File: Tom Horner.jpg

Hekerui, You recently requested the deletion of a picture of Tom Horner I uploaded, claiming it is in copyright violation due to it being on the Tom Horner Campaign website. I did not pull the image from the site; I actually work for the campaign and was given the file to put up on the wikipedia page. I am not copyright-savvy, so I do not know whether taking the image from the website or receiving it from a coworker on the campaign makes any difference. If it does matter, then hopefully the deletion request will be removed. If not, is there someway to change the copyright I put on the image? I haven't used Wikipedia enough to become adept at its workings, so I'm hoping you can offer me some assistance. Thank you, ZombiePowered (talk) 20:23, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Copyright of Illustrations

Please see the following links.

  1. Illustation in a copyrighted book
  2. Illustration based on the above image, uploaded in mlwiki

Is there any copyright problems in re-drawing such illustrations? Can we use such illustrations?

Regards --Vssun (talk) 13:23, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

As per the uploader in mlwiki, the same kind of illustrations are being used widely in most of the immunology books. He has taken only the idea from it and re-drawn entirely. Interestingly, scanned copies of the same image are uploaded in enwiki and commons as pd-self and claimed as own works!. --Vssun (talk) 17:06, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Please see the following sentence at w:en:Copyright
Free use of copyrighted work is expressly permitted in the case of quotations from lawfully published works, illustration for teaching purposes, and news reporting (Article 10).
--Vssun (talk) 03:24, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
What you are quoting is basically called "fair use" & not allowed on commons. Regarding the image itself, imo the file on ml.wiki is fine. The drawing and style are {{own}}, and the information on which the drawing is based is not copyrightable. And I'd say that the vertical arrangement of the process is not elligible for protection either. --DieBuche (talk) 13:29, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Multimediadatei des Tages

Hallo Hekerui, das Einfügen von Videos dort habe ich im Sommer angefangen, als mehrfach kein Medium auftauchte und sich zwar einige darüber erregten, aber dann doch wieder nichts geschah. Wollte nur mal anmerken, dass ich dein Einfügen von Audiodateien gut finde (es war schon arg Video-lastig in letzter Zeit, da ich selbst mich primär mit diesem Medium befasse); es macht also gar nichts, mal ein Video zu verschieben, Hauptsache die Mischung stimmt. Gruß, --Pristurus (talk) 17:33, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Hekerui, hm, wenn ich dem ersten Link auf der Filebeschreibungsseite folge (dort zu goo.gl/QKoU gekürzt), heißt es neben dem Flash-Video: "This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License". Da bin ich eigentlich davon ausgegangen, dass dies reichen würde, bin aber in Lizenzdingen relativ unbedarft. Inhaltlich ist das natürlich eine politische Geschichte, aber gerade auf Commons wird doch "no censorship" immer gefordert. Meinungsfreiheit, Demokratie und Politische Bildung fallen sicherlich auch unter "educational purpose", so wie auf Commons erwünscht.

Hallo Hekerui, so deine Datei ist hochgeladen; leider ist ja die MP4-Datei auf YouTube schon qualitativ nicht so berauschend. Ich könnte das im Video vorherrschende Grau höchstens etwas dunkler machen und den Kontrast anpassen, wird aber wahrscheinlich auch nicht viel bringen. Dein Problem war ja, so wie ich das Verstanden habe, der Download von YouTube zu deinem PC. Das geht hier mit SeaMonkey als Browser(oder auch mit Firefox) mittels des Addons "DownloadHelper" (http://www.downloadhelper.net/) recht einfach, das Hochladen dauerte dann allerdings ca. 90min., da es hier leider nur Schmalspur-DSL gibt.

Image clarification

"You claim to have taken yourself the following images: File:Jayalalitha Early Star.JPG, File:Ilayaraaja the Maestro.jpg, File:Kamal with sivaji.jpg and more. These look like promo shots and an old black and white image from the 1960s, have you really clicked them yourself?"

Hi, I recently got a message like this. Of these 3 images except File:Jayalalitha Early Star.JPG, all are mine. Please trust me. The jayalalitha image alone was uploaded by Kumarrajendran (talk). This jayalalitha image is already there in wiki page Tamil cinema and Dravidian politics. But it is not there in wiki commons. Clearly note that I found this image was not uploaded in wikicommons. So I uploaded it there and later wanted to add this jayalalitha image in "jayalalitha article" in wiki.

I thought re-uploading a file to wikicommons from already available image in wiki, is allowed. Since it is stated in the original uploaded page Tamil cinema and Dravidian politics description by Kumarrajendran (talk) at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jjkumar.JPG -- "I grant any entity the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law."

The only problem it went is -- I uploaded it in wikicommon saying it is mine. Thats it. As explained above I thought I can do so. Please understand this. This image was already there in wiki main article ONLY. I uploaded it in wikicommons for other purposes, inorder to re-use it for jayalalitha article.

Other than this both other images are mine ONLY. Why are you guys make me go hanged again & again like this. I also do edit and upload after reviewing all the instruction. Seeing everything in doubt is not good and crushes users like me. I am totally got mad when again and again this is raised against me. Please please for God sake try to reach me. !!!

OTRS cases

Hi Hekerui, please do not tag files which have already {{OTRS received}} tags like in this case. Thanks and kind regards, AFBorchert (talk) 05:27, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi. These files don't seem to be in order but have been included in Wikipedia pages since June. Isn't that problematic? No changes were made to them since June either - it doesn't look like there is a more than month-long discussion happening that attempts to resolve their copyright, or is it? Thanks Hekerui (talk) 08:32, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Hi Hekerui, we have a 30 day period for OTRS cases as it is not uncommon for these cases to take that long. One problem is the OTRS backlog, the other the time consuming exchange of emails with third parties who are not familiar with free licenses etc. For these processes it is helpful to see the actual uploads for some considerable time such that the copyright holders can see what a permission refers to. And these files are already tagged; the tags are {{OTRS pending}} (initially used by the uploader) and {{OTRS received}} (confirmation by an OTRS member that we have an open ticket for it). Whenever concerns arise, they should be addressed at COM:ON. But there is no need to double tag these files. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 08:57, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Duration of copyright

Of course. Look at here (page 22, article 96). This is the Copyright and Related Rights Law adopted in 1998, and it was repealed in December 2004. So, in Serbia, the works of authors who died before 1954 (2004-50=1954) are in public domain. I know that Croatia had a similar law until 1999 (text in Croatian, article 81). mickit 08:38, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

I just found this (the law adopted in 1978). Article 82 says: Copyrights last for the life of the author and 50 years after his death, unless otherwise stated in the articles of this law (rough translation). mickit 09:07, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Bollywood Hungama

I just retagged a few BH uploads with {{Cc-by-3.0-BollywoodHungama}}, replacing the generic tag, so they are now in the unreviewed cat. Also, we now have a significant amount of uploads from Filmitadka.com who have a similar CC-BY release for images their photographers take at parties, but that is being misinterpreted to include other images at parties, should we start a similar process for that source too? cheers.

A question about copyright

Hi Hekerui,

Please see this file. Text in this file was written in Ninth century by some unknown person. However the present file is scannned copy of a 1959 edition.

  1. Can we use this?
  2. If not, can we use this by removing title page, prologue etc.?

With regards

--Vssun (talk) 15:19, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for explanation. I mentioned this at Village Pump too. Please have a look there also. I will ask the uploader to re-upload the same after removing Title, Prologue & Footnotes. --Vssun (talk) 12:28, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

File:Ray stu.gif

Hi! How do we know the photo was published before 1951? According to the article on en-wiki his first move was released in 1955. We could asume that he was not famous before that date and then wonder if it is likely that his photo was published before that date. Do you have info about that? --MGA73 (talk) 21:29, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Assessment

Hi,

I was assuming that a "Media of the day" was selected after a vote. This is not the case, as opposed to a "Picture of the day". I will stop to add the assessment header for this kind of media. I will correct my previous edits to correct that. Thank you for the comment.

Hi Itu, ja, ich hab es zu der Zeit am vollständigen Bild gesehen, aber jetzt ist die Lizenz dafür geändert worden und wir können das Bild nicht mehr hochladen - sich auf eine damalige Lizenz für ein Werk zu berufen, das so hier noch nicht hochgeladen war, von dem nur eine Ableitung legal existiert, und dem jetzt hinreichende Lizenzierung enzogen wurde, ist trotz des Nichtzurücknehmenkönnens problematisch. Wir haben es halt zu dem Zeitpunkt nicht getan, deshalb ist es jetzt zu spät. Beste Grüße Hekerui (talk) 20:42, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Help

Hi. I remember long time before we had some talks on commons. I need your help here. Recently I uploaded this image (1). It seems now there comes a new issue about the authors work. But I see clearly this image must have been taken by camera as per its high resolution size by the author. Need your suggestion. Thanks ----Ungal Vettu Pillai (talk) 06:23, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

I have contacted the author and waiting for some response and as per response I believe we can move forward. But Hekerui on what basis that account was black-listed (This will help me so that next time I can watch out for author's status. I would like to share this also: after my upload I did some research and found no where that image being downloaded from some sites or taken from else-where. So with that I believe it must have been his own work (only based on my research I say this) but still when there are some doubts it is better we go by rules. Thank you again. ----Ungal Vettu Pillai (talk) 21:16, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Copyright status of File:Fredrick banting.jpg

Hi, Hekerui. I think this file, and all Arthur Goss's work, is PD in the US because its copyright expired in Canada prior to the URAA date. Goss died in 1940, so his work entered the public domain in Canada on January 1st, 1991 (end of the calendar year in which he died plus fifty years). I've change the license accordingly, but if I've made an error please by all means correct it. Rrburke (talk) 01:44, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Hekerui! Du hast jetzt die Rechte eines Administrators auf Commons. Nimm dir bitte einen Moment Zeit, um dir die Seite Commons:Administratoren und die in Verbindung mit der Beobachtungsliste stehenden Seiten durchzulesen (insbesondere Commons:Administrators' noticeboard und Commons:Deletion requests), bevor du damit beginnst, Seitenlöschungen, Accountsperrungen oder Änderungen am Seitenschutzstatus bzw. an den geschützten Seiten selbst durchzuführen. Der Großteil der Bearbeitungen eines Administrators kann durch andere Administratoren wieder rückgängig gemacht werden, mit Ausnahme der Zusammenführung von Versionsgeschichten, die deshalb mit spezieller Obacht behandelt werden muss.

Wir laden dich herzlich ein, mit uns auf IRC Kontakt aufzunehmen: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net. Es gibt auch einen Channel für Commons-Admins, der für sensiblere Themen sowie zur Koordination unter Admins genutzt werden kann. Du findest zudem in dem Commons:Ratgeber zur Administratorentätigkeit vielleicht eine nützliche Lektüre.

Appropriately Licensed

You participated at the earlier discussion on licence choice for Featured Pictures. A number of users felt that such restrictions should be made at policy level. Please comment at Commons:Requests for comment/AppropriatelyLicensed. This is a proposal to amend this licence policy to disallow future uploads where the sole licence is inappropriate for the media (e.g., GFDL for images). In earlier discussions there were a number of comments that, while reasonable opinions, did not align with Wikimedia's mission for free content. Please read the FAQ before commenting.

Undelection of a picture

Trophy.png Undelection of a picture
Why did you delete my picture (Capilla SUD Melipilla Chile.jpg)?

I am the onner of that picture. I took it in my city in June 2008. You shouldn't have done that with my picture. If you know how to remediate your mistake, I will be grateful. Thanks Frarozu (talk) 06:09, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Mondrian image

Dear Hekerui, I noticed you've uploaded an image of Gray Tree by Mondrian. There are several problems with that image: its was apparently scanned from a book, catalogue or magazine (it's riddled with halftone dots of different shades and colors), the contrast was overpoweringly pushed, the paintings edges were overly cropped, and the colors (tones of grey) were not accurate. I've replace that image with one that does not present these problems. In the future, if you do upload more images of paintings, by Mondrian or others, please check the website of the museum (or gallery) where it is located. They usually have professional photographers that attempt to reproduce the picture faithfully (which is quite difficult). Unfortunately, others too often accentuate contrasts and colors (because they like it better that way) deviating significantly from a true representation of the original work. Thanks for your comprehension. Coldcreation (talk) 08:44, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

1) The image was a big improvement over the Wikipedia image used before, but I admit I had not found the image on poeticmind.co.uk, 2) you acted correctly in improving my upload, thank you. Hekerui (talk) 08:55, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

File:Ravi Shankar - Madhuvanti.ogg

Hallo Hekerui, lässt sich diese Datei jetzt nach Abschluss von Commons:Deletion requests/File:Ram Narayan at the Shiraz Arts Festival.ogg wiederherstellen? Soweit ich das überblicke, liegen die Verhältnisse in diesem Fall ganz ähnlich und das Video war zuvor in mehreren Wikipedia-Ausgaben in Verwendung. Gruß, --Pristurus (talk) 19:26, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Pristurus, da genau dasselbe Prinzip dahinter steht, wie du sagst, habe ich die Datei wiederhergestellt und einen Kommentar auf der Diskussionsseite hinterlassen. Besten Dank für deine Nachricht. Ich hatte das im Hinterkopf, aber hatte noch nicht gemerkt, dass die Diskussion geschlossen wurde. Gruß Hekerui (talk) 10:59, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
Danke Hekerui, vielleicht sollte man mal schauen, ob da noch mehr ähnlich gelagerte Fälle existieren. Diese Datei war nur auf meiner Beobachtungsliste und dann habe ich zufällig deinen Kommentar im genannten Löschantrag entdeckt.. Gruß, --Pristurus (talk) 00:05, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
Das war auch meine Beschwerde. Es gab keine Benachrichtigung. Ich hinterlasse immer eine Notiz falls ich was nominiere oder lösche. Hekerui (talk) 00:17, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Paul Klee

... is a particularly complicated case when it comes to US copyright situation. See the detailed copyright section at Category:Paul Klee explaining things. Works by Klee from his last Swiss period (1933 and later) are most likely not affected by the URAA (as the copyright on his works expired on January 1, 1991 in Switzerland and thus wasn't restored by the URAA in the US), only Klee works published from 1923 to 1933 (in Germany). Therefore, I reverted your change at File:Death and Fire.JPG. Gestumblindi (talk) 20:17, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Aus dem gleichen Grund (ich sehe gerade, dass du ja deutschsprachig bist) habe ich auch die ursprüngliche Lizenzierung von File:Heroic Roses.JPG wiederhergestellt. Wenn dich eine detaillierte Diskussion zum Thema interessiert, findest du eine hier in Lupos Diskussionsarchiv. Gestumblindi (talk) 20:40, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Zu diesem Edit deinerseits: Nein, da hattest du keinen Aussetzer - wäre Klee tatsächlich erst 1944 gestorben, hätte in der Schweiz für seine Werke schon der 1993 auf 70 Jahre p.m.a. angehobene Schutz gegolten und damit wäre dann auch der URAA zum Zuge gekommen. Da er 1940 starb, lief der Schutz jedoch nach der damals geltenden Schutzfrist von 50 Jahren 1991 ab (und wurde bei der Anhebung auf 70 Jahre 1993 nicht wiederhergestellt, siehe dazu Sternheim-Urteil des Bundesgerichts).

Dan Balan Pictures

Hello Hekerui,

I uploaded a copyrighted picture recently and it was deleted. I am sorry for that. I didn't know Wikipedia had such strict rules. I thought who would find out. I got that picture from the artist's Google Plus Page. However, two photos which have been deleted were actually mine that I had taken at concerts. I have uploaded them again. Sorry for the issue. I promise, it won't happen again.

Thanks Derek Carlo-Sciaca (talk) 12:51, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

-- Continued -- Herekui, I am not Serghei. These pictures were taken from his camera, they were with him for some time, but I have no way of proving that I have taken these pictures. The pictures from my iPhone were on poor quality. How can I show Wikipedia that these pictures are mine? If there is now way I can prove that these pictures are mine, please delete them. I am so sorry for the trouble again.Derek Carlo-Sciaca (talk) 13:43, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

-- Continued -- On one event, we were together. He left for some time and gave me his camera, so I took some photos and this black one was very good so I asked him to sent it to me. One other time, I took his camera for this event. There I took the photo. Its okay if i cannot use them I can upload my iPhone pics.Derek Carlo-Sciaca (talk) 14:15, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
