File talk:New Zealand Army HX77 (8x8) tractor unit.JPG[edit]

Hello Herbythyme,

I've spoken to a very nice business development person at RMMV. He tells me that all the RMMV images are available here ( ) and that this is an accepted way for media etc. to access free-to-use images. I have not linked to this page in my uploads. If I link each image to this page, which is clearly a site for media access/downloads, would this meet Wiki rules. I think it might, as does Jan at RMMV. He will 'sign off' each image if required, but would prefer this way as it is obviously easier for all concerned. Thank you in advance for your knowledge, and taking the time to talk this through with a learner!


Hello Herbythyme, I'm learning here... I Hope this works...

I'm answering the possible copyright violation messages I received for three images I used in the recently created page for RMMV's HX truck range.

There are three images involved. This one [ ] and two others - &

All three of these are media images and free to use, and can be obtained from Rheinmetall/RMMV. When I set out to create the HX page I was lacking these so I asked them (RMMV) for help. I was directed to these images as an easy download. How can I ensure these images stay used?

I suppose the easiest would be for the contact I made at RMMV to supply me with written permission, stating they are free usage media images. Would that work? I am sure they would do that.

I'm not 100% sure I'm answering the problem in the right way here, and if I am not, please help me to do so correctly.

Thanks very much.

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Herbythyme, congratulations! You now have administrator rights on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard an it subpages), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Have a look at the list of Gadgets (on the bottom there are the ones specifically for admins – however, for example the UserMessages are very helpful too).

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons webchat on There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators: #wikimedia-commons-admin webchat.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading. You can find the admin backlog overview at COM:AB.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references.

So... after seven years, still no one has taken a slice of that pie? Can we not throw it in the bin? -mattbuck (Talk) 14:28, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

@Mattbuck: I think someone baked a fresh one in that time. Sad to see so very few of the people who were around then are still here. However my thanks to @EugeneZelenko: for the rights again Smile. Thanks all - now back to the backlog... --Herby talk thyme 14:34, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

This is only a photo. Catch the moment. This pie can stay for ever fresh. -- Geagea (talk) 14:42, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Aaah - a zen pie - has the pie gone rotten if no one has seen it... ;) --Herby talk thyme 14:58, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Oops; I missed this RfA as I was in holidays when it was initiated. There must be some alternate mechanism to avoid missing important activities as activities in transcluded pages will not reflect in watch-list. Anyway, congrats! :) Jee 14:40, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Congratulations! Have a great time with the tools again! Jianhui67 talkcontribs 14:45, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Congratulations! If we are talking about the pie, then I bought and ate it after becoming admin. It tasted well. Taivo (talk) 15:34, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Gratz and welcome back! Good start, tho Clin --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:27, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Welcome beck!  ■ MMXX talk 21:37, 27 August 2015 (UTC)


Without discussion and as a seemingly kneejerk reaction, you have deleted photos I uploaded that were already in Wikimedia Commons. Then you issued a last warning without discussing or asking me personally what the deal is? Everything I uploaded had the proper licensing for modification and commercial use. I'd appreciate - and deserve - an explanation. Not just a "-1 my mistake" in an edit summary after you deleted a deletion notice on my talk page. Winkelvi (talk) 17:09, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
