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)

Can you please delete? The license was changed from cc-by-sa-2 to all rights reserved right after I uploaded the image. By the time the Flickerreview tool hasn't passed it. Sorry for the inconvenience please. Legolas2186 (talk) 03:52, 8 December 2009 (UTC)


Hi. I couldnt understand the license details given in the above file. Can u clarify it? As far as I know, that is a music album published in early 1970s and it might have re-published in CD/DVD form recently. Do we allow to publish such DVD cover in Commons? --Vssun (talk) 08:08, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

No, I nominated the image for deletion. Hekerui (talk) 09:17, 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)

Confirmation required

I have just transferred one image from mlwiki to here. Please check and confirm whether all required parameters has been added on it. I have some doubt at the Original upload log section.

Copyright Doubt


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)


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.

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 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)

Problem with an image of a Senate candidate

Hello Hekerui. The image at seems to have turned into a negative. You're the last person whose name I could find in the history, and your edit was on September 3. Do you have any idea what might have happened? I am en:User:EdJohnston. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 22:50, 9 September 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 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. Und warum nicht mal zeigen, dass es auch im arabischen Raum nicht nur Muslimbruderschaft und Al-Qaida gibt.....? Gruß, --Pristurus (talk) 19:28, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

File:Ravi Shankar - Madhuvanti.ogg

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" ( recht einfach, das Hochladen dauerte dann allerdings ca. 90min., da es hier leider nur Schmalspur-DSL gibt.

Actor Vijay Category

Hi I recently noted you reverted my category of Actor Vijay image. I do not know what went wrong. He is an actor from India. He belongs to Tamil people, people of tamil nadu, he is men from india. You might have changed ONLY that did not correct. But you changed all completely. This is not fair. Accept which are all correct and proper. I hope you receive me well. Thanks !!

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 -- "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. !!!

Hallo Hekerui,
deine File:Ravi Shankar - Madhuvanti - Shiraz Arts Festival.ogg ist jetzt über all durch die bessere Version ersetzt worden.

The photos I tagged as fair use were photos added to Wikipedia by political campaigns and individuals that did not give the proper permission, making them fair use. The photo of Raese appears to have been taken straight off of Google. Sincerely, User:Aaaccc 28 November 2010 (UTC)

I never stated that I don't care about the policies, please correct that here. I just pointed out that what your are stating at my talk page, would mean that most of our PD templates (like PD-old) with quite a lot of use, would be invalid. And I don't believe that? If you think that some PD-templates are invalid, please nominate those templates for deletion. As long as they exist, I will feel free to use them.
