Could you update the File:Colore della segnaletica autostradale.svg map?

The motorway signs in Azerbaijan are green and in that file Azerbaijan needs to be colored in green accordingly.

hi INeverCry

I want to ask you about categories, how can I add it to my pictures? and your help would be greatly appreciated!Osamaalsaadi (talk) 02:21, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi Osama. The easiest way is to use the Hotcat tool. To use this, go to "Preferences" - "Gadgets" - "Tools for categories" and click the box next to Hotcat. This tool gives you a little + sign in the category area at the very bottom of image pages. Click the + and a box opens in which you type a category and then click "OK". You can also add categories manually by editing a page and placing a category at the bottom like this: [[Category:Name here]]. See Commons:Categories for a detailed explanation of categories and their use. INeverCry 02:33, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Messier 74 ULX.jpg

Hi INeverCry!

I am assuming that you only deleted the file because of the 30 day thing rather than OTRS pending not yet responded to. Am I correct or did OTRS respond? --Marshallsumter (talk) 11:28, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

I deleted it because of the lack of permission. INeverCry 19:13, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Deletion of images

You recently deleted some of my uploaded images citing copyright infringements. The images were tagged stating that the IDF had granted permission for their use under an appropriate licence. This was after I sent a copy of this permission by email and it was registered. (I can send it to you too if you want) Can you explain why they were then deleted? AnkhMorpork (talk) 12:30, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

The file File:Children under fire.jpg has been restored and re-deleted by another admin (User:Matanya). The file File:Ashkelon.jpg was deleted for having a non-commercial license. Ask Matanya about these, as he's an OTRS member, or ask at the OTRS noticeboard. INeverCry 19:12, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Deleted images

Have you asked an OTRS member? Sometimes it takes weeks to get OTRS permission processed. You can also ask about them at the OTRS noticeboard. Once you've got a ticket#, myself, Túrelio, or another admin can restore them. INeverCry 22:54, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Redirect deletion

Hi, when you delete images, you should also delete redirects to them (e.g. File:Oedipus; S. Batič, 1997, Ljubljana.jpg; also the redirect File:Ljubljana sculpture (2).jpg‎‎) should be deleted. Thanks. --Eleassar (t/p) 09:31, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Dementiev V F.jpg

In that DR, the uploader refered to the state archive of the Arkhangelsk province, where the photographer of the image is listed amongst the victims of Stalinian purge who have been executed (or died in prison) in 1939. If it's true, the photo is obviously PD. Not sure if we should restore it? Thanks - A.Savin 10:08, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Deletion error

I know it's become fashionable to attack anything related to Gibraltar. However, you made a mistake in deleting File:Panorama from Green's Lodge Battery.png. That photo was correctly licensed under CC-SA-3.0. The permission is clearly given by Jim Crone on the main page of Please undelete the image and return it to the original article, Green's Lodge Battery. ACP2011 (talk) 22:37, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

and thank you fr the correction. Can you offer some advice? We are losing files like File:Water outflow gibraltar.jpg and we see them disappear via our watchlist of en:wikipedia but we then have to go to commons and trace who loaded the fie and why it was deleted. We then have to apologise for not spotting that it was under threat of deletion for some time. Is there a way of watching a whole category on commons? Is there a quick way of requesting undeletion? Your advice would be appreciated. How do I find Water_outflow_gibraltar.jpg after it has been deleted? Victuallers (talk) 09:55, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
Watching a category only shows changes to the category page itself, so you'd have to watch individual files. I've never had cause to want to watch all the files in a category, and so I don't know what the easiest way of adding them to your watchlist, and updating your watchlist as new files are added would be. You might want to ask about this at the the Commons:Help desk. As for deleted images, you can still search for the file and then click on the redlink result to see the deletion reason. I've linked the above file, which was deleted for being all rights reserved on Flickr. To request undeletion, you can post at Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests. We usually get these taken care of within a day or two. INeverCry 18:34, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Sound advice. I can see that the Fickr license is suspicious, but could be innocent too. At least now with your advice I know that undeletion may be the best available route, even if it is not ideal. thx INC. Victuallers (talk) 08:18, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

File:BAL Penn station.png

Would you please restore File:BAL Penn station.png? It was tagged in error. The subject is the Baltimore Penn Station. It is a panoramic view of the building. The inclusion of the statue is incidental. The image would essentially look quite similar if the statue was removed. I refer you to:

The building is a historical landmark and the photo should be preserved. I think this falls under copyright paranoia. It would be impossible to have any panoramic pictures of the building that didn't include the sculpture. If you disagree, I ask that you restore the image and tag it so it goes through a full discussion here: Category:United States FOP cases/pending. Thanks. Evrik (talk) 07:08, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

licensing of Paintings

I appreciate if you can review these two file that I uploaded because they have been marked for deletion. I believe I have chosen the suitable license for these paintings, they are publicly displayed in "Kafr El Gouna museum" in the city of Hurghada in Egypt. And they fall in the category license of “freedom of panorama” in Egypt. I have provided two links in the summary where you will find mention of the said museum and that it holds paintings of "The eighth wonder" by Hussein Bicar, your continuous support is highly appreciated.

Hast Du

vor dieser Löschung meinen Hinweis in der Löschdiskussion berücksichtigt? Gruß, --4028mdk09 (talk) 03:23, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

German FOP applies to "public ways, streets or places (e.g. squares, plazas)" that are "dedicated to the public and publicly-accessible." Graveyards are mentioned, but I'm not sure about enclosed funeral chapels. Are these really dedicated to the public? If funeral services are held there, does the place need to be reserved by the party of the deceased? Also, if funeral services are held there, then people probably aren't allowed to walk through and view the place during services. I don't think a funeral chapel is "dedicated to the public." I don't know how funeral services are handled in Germany though, or in this particular location, so I could be wrong. You may want to post an undeletion request.

Re: and your communication to me.

The issue is both (a) simple and (b) complicated. (a) is that I've invested a lot of time and energy into Wikipedia (fact-checking and corrections, grammatical editing, adding references, updating biographical entries, fleshing out anatomy articles, etc.), while at the same time (b) not learning the basics of what types of files go where, or how to communicate with other Wikipedians concerning meta-issues like whatever I did wrong with my user image on my own user page -- which I still don't understand.

Perhaps I need to check, step-by-step, into the fine points of (b) where they concern me. Or maybe I need more one-on-one guidance from an experienced editor. In any case, my health prevents me from attending closely to these matters right now. Does this make sense? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Erasistratus1 (talk • contribs) 16:58, November 26, 2012‎ (UTC)

I wouldn't worry too much about the nuts and bolts, as there's always someone around who can help with that. The issue with your pic is that you used a weblink (like rather than a wikilink like [[File:Erasistratus1_WIKIPEDIA_Portrait.jpg]].

File renaming

Hello INC. Should this image be renamed? I see that you have done some such as File:Frédéric Brandon (1995).png. I had renamed several images like this. However, I noticed Commons:File renaming doesn't have any criterias of renaming short filename (but not misleading) and also this discussion. I was also approached by MGA73 for this--Morning (talk) 10:32, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

I think that file should be renamed. I renamed the Brandon file and several others like it because I agreed that they were ambiguous and misleading, and not solely because of their length. It's difficult to address this within policy, and the discussion you link to really doesn't say much about individual interpretation of what's misleading. It simply re-affirms that files shouldn't be renamed only because they're short. INeverCry 19:20, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

French Panorama's

Hi, you recently removed a photo of a French statue of which the sculptor is still alive. Such an image is not freely licensable due to France not having a "Freedom of Panorama," which is why it was nominated for deletion. Now I wrote to the artist, he just hasn't replied yet (neither do I actually expect him to reply, but still, what more can I do?) but unfortunately the image was removed without further discussion (see Now I read up on the French nuances of their Freedom of Panorama law, and it appears that if a work of art is "unavoidable" in an otherwise allowed picture of something else, then the picture itself is also allowed, even when protected artwork is visible. Underneath the statue is a sign that reads "the machine is out of order," which is a normal sign, unprotected by copyright. Therefore, I was thinking to re-upload the image, but just name it "photograph of the sign saying that the sculpture is out of order." That way, there's no problem with Freedom of Panorama. Since you're active in the picture maintenance community (you removed the previous one) I thought I'd ask you first. What do you think? (Unrelated: isn't not having freedom of panorama just weird? What could the intention of a law be if it blocks photos on wikipedia? You'd guess that artist would actually want to have their art on there. Also, it's visible to everybody walking on that square, anyway. Laws are so slow to adapt to reality, because I'm pretty sure that this was never the intention of the law.) Stijndon (talk) 09:08, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

If you're able to get OTRS permission from the author, the image could be restored. The "sign under the statue" idea probably isn't the way to go. As for FOP itself, I hope the laws are lightened or done away with in the future, but for now they have to be followed here on Commons. INeverCry 19:56, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Renaming Files

Hello! Thanks for giving me renaming rights. Before I started doing a bunch of renaming of files, I just wanted to make sure that I am doing it correctly. To correct the name of a photo on wiki, am I supposed to use the "Move & Replace" command or just the plain "Move" command. Also, will the "Move & Replace" command automatically correct any links from within Wikipedia articles to the new name of the photo or will I still need to manually do that. Thank you so much!

You deleted my picture

Hello, you have recently deleted my photograph of Minister for Health James Reilly from Wiki commons as 'copyright violation' it is my OWN photograph, I work as a photographer for Fine Gael party. (File:Minister James Reilly at Fine Gael Ard Fheis.jpg) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MarekOleary (talk • contribs) 14:31, November 28, 2012‎ (UTC)

Lerche coat of arms.tiff

Hello, INeverCry, I am sorry that I uploaded this file and thereby violated the copyright law. I assumed (never assume, always check!) that the coat of arms was from 1660, as stated in the scan I received of 'parts of' the Danmarks adels årbog 1934. The coat of arms probably does date from that year, when Lerche received his "patent", but the illustration in the book was by Britze, I now understand. Hm... this probably was not of much interest to you. I just felt like writing it. :) kj 08:19, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Dear INeverCry: You have removed this file File:Princess Marie Lichtenstein and Giorgi Latsabidze.jpg |thumb|[[Marie, Princess of Liechtenstein|Princess Marie Aglaë of Liechtenstein and Giorgi Latso in the Vaduz Castle]]) due to copyright violation. Could you please explain what was wrong with it? Thank you~ Tibetibe (talk) 17:50, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Giorgi-Latsabidze-Photograph-Los Angeles.jpg OR File:Latsabidze-giorgi-wiki-.jpg If you think this pic might have a problem to, as an administrator I would kindly ask you to suggest me which one shall I use as a main photo on his wikipedia page.

Hi, again, I made my point here just to let you know dear friend :) Nominator for delation stated that on Pianist's web site there is copyright on the bottom, but I examined furthermore and seems to me that it must be technical problem or perhaps the page was never updated. Obviously ALL the photos on Latsabidze's gallery page [1] can not be taken by just one photographer, "Alexander Reznik", it seems to be impossible and unreal. I think this file was removed also for the same reasonFile:Princess Marie Lichtenstein and Giorgi Latsabidze.jpg. Do you think it can be restored? Tibetibe (talk) 23:53, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

As to how to do this on commons, I would appreciate your kind guideline in this. Thanks! Tibetibe (talk) 17:18, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

I disagree. I think this passes COM:TOO because of the way the 2 different colored flag shapes go through and come out of the PRB, achieving a certain 3D effect. This is only my judgement of course, so you may want to put in an undeletion request. INeverCry 18:34, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:CowParade in Edinburgh

Can you clarify whether you intentionally meant to leave the two cropped images I linked to in that debate as undeleted. At the moment they exist here, but with the source now referring to now deleted donor images, which I presume is not acceptable. If you intended to delete them as well that's fine, but if not, at the very least could you replace the source parameter with links to the original flickr urls (which I no longer know due to the deletions).

Both images still featured the copyvio sculpture in the foreground, one with almost the whole sculpture at center, the other with enough of it to make me wonder. Both were questionable enough for PRP. INeverCry 21:33, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

About Bob247


A discussion is going on on Commons:Bistro (the village pump in French) about Bob247 FoP actions. In this context, I would prefer the Bob247 contributions to be more watched by the community, at least the time the issues are solved, so I removed the autopatrol flag.

See also:

--Dereckson (talk) 18:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Deletion requests are already placed before the community for review. If this is the area of concern, I don't see what removing the autopatrol right accomplishes. I give that right to users who haven't uploaded copyvio images, or who have uploaded only a very small number, and who haven't edited in a disruptive manner. I also think it might've been better for you to speak to me before reversing my rights change only a few days after I did it. INeverCry 20:00, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
The issue currently reported is a disruptive behavior. He were accused to follow a pattern similar to Pieter Kuiper actions.
I would like we act very carefully on the matter and take every measure to avoid to create a second Pieter Kuiper drama.
By the way, I would also like to note your autopatrolled flag granting possibility is a tool at the service to the community, not your personal toy.
--Dereckson (talk) 20:07, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Your comment above about rights granting not being "my personal toy" seems like a rude and disrespectful attack on me. Was it your intention to insult me with that? INeverCry 20:23, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I'm sorry if my statement has sound rude, it weren't my intention; I only wanted to reply to your comment I should have discussed the matter with you beforehand and not at the same moment of the action. The real argument is the disruptive behavior report seemed to me to justify the emergency. I should have directly expressed that instead to make the previous comment. --Dereckson (talk) 20:31, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Sergio. It was deleted for lacking sufficient permission as tagged by a colleague of ours. The OTRS ticket was marked {{PermissionOTRS|missingID=true}}.

These may be free, but you had them tagged with {{PD-old-100}} which is not the right license. The photos were taken in 1906, so the photographer could've lived until the 1950s or 60s. You should check to see if {{PD-RusEmpire}} or {{PD-Russia}} might apply. You might also want to ask a Russian-speaking admin like User:EugeneZelenko for advice.

Hi, could you review if File:Cheers-españa.png really had to be speedy deleted? I think it was at least worth having deletion discussion.

I don't agree with what was said there. This logo is 3D, colored in an artistic way, and in a creative cursive font with a flourish at the end.

hi, I uploaded a new photo from my new camera.

Need some advice, please.

Ran into a category where it looks like most to all of the files will have to be deleted because the uploader didn't understand "own work". It looks like the person who uploaded the photos is the widow of this gentleman. This photo was taken by Bruno of Hollywood and appears to be before 1978, but I can't find any way to conclusively date it-it's of the couple when they were still performing. He has an en.WP page. That one could be uploaded there as a non-free file because he's deceased. Should I just copy the file there and then file a DR for the copy that's here? When you see things like this, you feel for the person because there was good intent. Though I know we have to delete what we aren't sure of, I'd just like to see that all of this isn't lost. Thanks! We hope (talk) 03:20, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Your fair-use idea sounds like the best solution to me. That way the image is protected and it can be added to his article without worrying about it being deleted at some point. Once you've done the transfer you could speedy it, or let me know on my talk and I'll delete it directly. INeverCry 03:34, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
In regard to the rest of those files, you could wait until after you've added the above image to the article before filing a mass DR on the others or individually speedying them. Seeing the Bruno image in the article might soften the blow on the uploader a bit. INeverCry 03:40, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
OK-have copied the Bruno file to en.WP and added it to his article. I linked back to this discussion so it can be seen where the file originated after it gets deleted. It looks to me like the only one that might be able to be kept in the category is the award letter. We hope (talk) 05:39, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

I haven't done a whole lot of anti-vandalism work on, but the answers look good to me. It's nice to have someone like Soni who is willing to spend time on fighting vandalism, and if he makes a few mistakes in the course of his work, that's not too big a deal. I'm sure he'll do fine.

Hello INeverCry. I'm pleased to meet you. I posted the file Tess_Broussard_at_the_Emmy_Awards_2012.jpg. When I first posted it I incorrectly sourced it. I have tried to source it correctly but it seems my first mistake is the only sourcing wiki sees and so the photo was deleted. The photo was taken by and is licensed by Joyce Chow at I sent this information with an email from Joyce Chow conveying the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license but they were unable to verify ownership. I then sent a website which used the photo, to also show that Ms. Chow (Montebubbles) is the license holder. And now the photo has been removed. Isn't this enough to prove Joyce Chow is the license holder?

I would like to have the photo reinstated in wiki. Could you let me know if this is possible and if not what you need from me?

I appreciate your work and your time.

Thanks for having the file restored. I have added the license while uploading the images, and I am unsure how to do it on an image that has already been uploaded.

You deleted this file at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Zombie.svg. It was used in Template:The_Walking_Dead and no notice was given there. It only became apparent after it turned into a red link. Can you revert the deletion and reopen the discussion. The nominator makes several deductions about the source of the image without proof. Why he went to so much trouble to invalidate an image that was explicitly free is beyond me. Barsoomian (talk) 08:21, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

I deleted the file because the source doesn't provide an explicit license statement. The file is already the subject of an open undeletion request, so it's restoration would depend on the outcome there. INeverCry 19:32, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Well, great. Since it's been deleted, I can't know what the licence statement was. There was, I suppose, no attempt made to ask the uploader to comply with this? The graphic has been in use for several years without incident, it may have been derived (or could have) from an image that is (so far) unchallenged, so I fail to see the urgency to delete this and mess up articles that use it with no notice on any of the pages it was being used.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:"Gays Against Fascism" - First Gay Pride March (7486040932).jpg

Please reconsider your decision at Commons:Deletion requests/File:"Gays Against Fascism" - First Gay Pride March (7486040932).jpg.

Looking under permission at File:"Gays Against Fascism" - First Gay Pride March (7486040932).jpg there is a link to [LSE Library @ Flickr Commons]

Reading that page, I find

  • "However, many of our images are of unknown provenance, with no accompanying data about their creators or date of creation. If you make use of an image from our photostream, you are reminded to conduct an independent analysis of applicable law before proceeding with a particular new use."


  • "The images on our photostream are meant to be used for personal, educational or research purposes. To obtain high quality digital copies, or to find out more about copyright terms for the reproduction of specific works in our collection, please contact the Library's Archives and Rare Books Division. Please note that it is our policy to charge licensing fees for commercial use."

The first paragraph quoted indicates that there should be an independent analysis of applicable law before uploading to Commons. There is no evidence of such an analysis.

The second reserves the right to charge for commercial use and authorises only personal, educational and research purposes. It does not allow for the use of the photo by comemrcial organisations that scrape wikis and charge for bogus books via Amazon etc. However Commons would allow such usage, therefore the existe3nce of the file here widens the licensing beyond that authorised by the LSE.-- 15:11, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Whether or not this is a banned user, the IP appears to be making valid arguments. Would you mind re-opening the deletion discussion, at least so these arguments can be addressed? Delicious carbuncle (talk) 18:55, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Rather than re-opening the above DR, perhaps a separate discussion should be started on the LSE Library @ Flickr Commons source and how images from that source should be dealt with on Commons? INeverCry 20:20, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Is this a widespread problem with this source? Why not start with this specific image and expand the discussion if other examples are raised? Are you unwilling to re-open the DR? Delicious carbuncle (talk) 20:40, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
It seems that LSE uses the same "No Known Copyright Restrictions" license for all the images uploaded to LSE Library @ Flickr Commons, so my thought is that maybe there should be some set way of reviewing them (the above image passed a Flickr review). I think this might be a better solution than re-opening a DR on just one image. I wouldn't object, however, to another admin re-opening the above DR if they felt it necessary. INeverCry 20:48, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
If you wish to start a discussion about images from this source in general, go ahead. I'm just going to nominate this particular image for deletion again. Thanks. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 22:13, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

While I understand to some degree

I see the blocks of Kuiper's IPs. However they are dynamic - the only effect will be to puzzle some future user who attempt to use the IP on Commons - the probability is that it is unlikely to be Kuiper. Actually tagging the Ip seems plain wrong. From experience on en wp - I have had warnings that my IP has vandalised en wp - it may well have but it wasn't me - my IP is equally dynamic. --Herby talk thyme 10:54, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

User page of Pieter Kuiper

Hi INeverCry, I've reverted this edit by you on the user page of Pieter Kuiper. We do not put such blocking templates on user pages, in particular not to those working under a real name and who collaborated considerably for a significant time period. When Pieter Kuiper stays blocked (there was never a consensus for this), there is no reason to humiliate him. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 23:00, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

If that template isn't for userpages, then whats up with this? It obviously wouldn't make sense to put it on his talk, where he could easily remove it. You don't get indef blocked by accident either btw. There's no getting away from the fact that this user is socking with IPs. Several admins have blocked the IPs for it. INeverCry 23:40, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Some day, I think that someone needs to close the discussion at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems/Pieter Kuiper and decide what to do with this user. Of course, blocking won't affect anything if the user just uses different IP addresses all of the time. --Stefan4 (talk) 00:18, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
That's quite a mess there isn't it? As for the blocks, as an admin I have to uphold policy by blocking socks. Another thing about these IP blocks is that they are evidence of socking around a block which is a legitimate reason for instituting and/or maintaining an indef block and is something to be considered if/when a block is appealed. INeverCry 00:51, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Yes, it's very messy. I'm not sure if it is a good idea to block the IP addresses (e.g. and for a whole year, though. The IP addresses suggest that he is using a mobile phone connected to the largest Swedish mobile network and he obviously gets a new IP address frequently. A long block risks blocking someone else by mistake while it is unlikely that he will use the same IP even after a day. --Stefan4 (talk) 02:50, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

closure of DR with renomination etc

The DR archive Bot does not archive closed DR if it contains more subheadings than the first one. If you close a DR where the image has been renominated, please disable further subheading. Please look at this diff for something I use to circumvent the problem. Another issue is the first subheading, the filename therein has to match the subtemplate name and should not contain other infos or a second image added behind - Bot won't archive such an DR either. --Denniss (talk) 20:04, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Long-term egregious vandalism

Thank you for deleting some of the images uploaded by User:Hiyahkick that I had flagged for copyvio. Thank you for warning this user about copyright issues. I'd like you to be aware that this user is one of hundreds of sockpuppets created by a notorious vandal who was banned from English Wikipedia several years ago (for persistently uploading copyvio content, creating deliberately erronenous content, and other issues), but continues to operate on Commons with near-impunity. I know that essentially everything this sockpuppet army uploads is a copyvio (in many cases I'm fairly sure I've seen the images before, as they were uploaded and deleted previously, but I don't have admin access to check that). However, I'm not technically adept at working with images in order to search effectively for evidence that the inagees are copyvios (I got lucky today with a few images). Thus, I'm not good at finding evidence to convince Commons administrators that a particular image is copyvio. I've been dealing with this character for years, and haven't gotten much recognition of the problem among Commons administrators. Life is too short to try to fight this egregious vandalism one image at a time, though.

I'm hoping for some help in getting Commons to control this long-term, prolific, and egregious vandal.

The sockpuppeteer in question is known at English Wikipedia as Jvolkblum. See EN:Category:Wikipedia_sockpuppets_of_Jvolkblum for a collection of sockpuppets used at English Wikipedia. Note that the Jvolkblum account was never used on Commons (he used to upload images to English Wikipedia, and didn't start working Commons until after he was thwarted on EN). Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/ChucksBike-O-Rama is a checkuser request from 2008 that turned up a collection of socks active in Commons around that time. A number of users were blocked in the 2008 time frame, but this activity has continued pretty much unabated ever since. For a principal example, Category:New Rochelle, New York and its subcategories contain hundreds of images from this army of sockpuppets. In addition to Hiyahkick, accounts active on Commons in the last few months (typically for only a day or two -- these are throw-away sock accounts) have included (but are not limited to) User:Grabbybagg, User:Tuscanice, User:Frankiesay22, User:NataFallon1, User:MotortodaParty, User:DuckieMoMo, User:ChanceTears, User:28Shimms, User;Midnitesweeps, User:Octogoggles, User:Kepclm, and User:ElykSenoj. Sometimes he edits from anonymous IPs -- for example, see Special:Contributions/ and this cross-wiki history. Checkuser effectiveness is limited by the fact that he typically has access to several different Internet services; recently. he has often edited from mobile phone IPs (like that Sprint IP). However, after seeing thousands of his edits, I seldom have any doubt when I'm looking at his work. --Orlady (talk) 05:47, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Orlady. The first thing I noticed was that the Jvolkblum acct is non-existent on Commons, which is a problem in regard to tagging these socks and starting a category for them. I would suggest maybe changing those socks from the 2008 CU to "socks of ChucksBike-O-Rama" and changing ChucksBike-O-Rama to sockpuppeteer. This way there's a reference point for socks tagged on Commons, rather than having people click on a non-existent acct. We could add a reference to the Jvolkblum deal to the ChucksBike-O-Rama userpage.

It looks like all or most of the images are New York-related? This will help if CU won't, though perhaps we should request a new CU anyways? It also looks like atleast the grabbybag acct is used on en and com, so that could be blocked outright. Maybe others, but I'm too tired to look at the moment. I'm going to bed, but I'll have a better look at all this tomorrow. INeverCry 07:39, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for looking at this. I understand that the absence on Commons of the Jvolkblum account has been an issue in the past. ChucksBike-O-Rama is probably as good an account as any to identify as the sockpuppeteer, although it is by no means the earliest of the accounts used on Commons.
In recent times, this sockpuppeteer has often limited his accounts to either Commons or EN, but about about a third of the accounts used on Commons (at least the ones that I know about) also get used on EN. Every known account on EN is blocked; also, on EN these accounts' contributions to EN get purged for being the work of a banned user (unless those contents are validated by someone else). Regarding users who have been active at both sites, here are global contributions page for two of the registered users (ElykSenoj and ChanceTears) who have worked on both sites within the last several months -- and who made some edits at EN that haven't been completely deleted. I'm less concerned about the user accounts (which are typically abandoned after a short time) than I am about the images. When a user uploads a bunch of images with license claims and source information that doesn't clearly accord with the nature of the image (for example, small-scale photos, consistent with website photos, that are claimed to be from the user's own camera) and that user is already blocked on EN as a proven sockpuppet of a banned user notorious for violating copyright and misrepresenting the sources of uploaded content, I believe that Commons should make a presumption that the content is misrepresented -- rather than allowing all contents except the most obvious copyvios to remain on Commons because of the assumption of good faith.
Most, but not all, of the images of concern are related to New York (generally New Rochelle, New York, and Sarah Lawrence College). There also are images of people, artwork, and other topics that are in some way related (or said to be related) to New Rochelle (for example, Norman Rockwell, the Lawton blackberry cultivar, America's Cup yachts and yachtsmen, and actors and actresses who once appeared in Thanhouser film studio productions). Some materials are legitimately PD-US due to their being published before 1923. However, it's not clear that everything that *looks* old truly *is* old (this is a particular concern with artwork) or was actually published in the past (as distinct from being placed in a family photo album in 1919, then donated to a library in 1995). --Orlady (talk) 15:16, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi! This image is only around the head of goku. Does it violate this copyright?. Thanks PetrohsW 02:00, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

The image shows about 80% of the Goku character, and is sourced to "internet". Looks like a definite copyvio to me. INeverCry 02:13, 21 December 2012 (UTC)


File:Grev Turegatan 1962.jpg [4]

I tagged as a possible copyvio and the uploader removed the tag. If you have a moment, could you take a look. The rationale he gave was {{PD-Sweden-photo}} which may be true, but it seemed to be outside the criteria as it was stated in the template and I feel an independent set of eyes on the image is best. Dennis Brown (talk) 14:53, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

The bit about "photographic works" as opposed to "photographic pictures" seems a bit confusing. Seeing that the uploader removed the CSD, which he's basically allowed to do, one option would be to use {{delete}}, which he's not allowed to remove, instead. Another option you might try is posting a question about this image at Commons:Village pump/Copyright. INeverCry 18:31, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
The confusion for me was the exception to be PD if it was released by the press, but this image was instead published by a museum (per the description of the source itself), and wouldn't seem to qualify. And I wasn't sure if creators could remove speedy tags, I know the policies are very different here than enwp. I'm trying to get up to speed to help here a bit more, without stepping on toes. Thank you for the assistance, I will ponder it a bit before deciding. Dennis Brown (talk) 19:56, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
The statement "such as images by the press" leaves me wondering what else is covered, and if the difference is whether or not the work is considered artistic or how much it has to do with where and why it was originally taken and published. You might also ask User:Thuresson, as he's an SV speaking admin, who're quite few here. INeverCry 20:04, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
I've dropped Thuresson a note pointing here. It is an unusual concern, not something you run across every day, so I didn't want to labor it with the editor who removed the tag. Hopefully Thuresson can shed some light. Thanks again. Dennis Brown (talk) 19:29, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Establishing if a particular photo met the requirements must be done on a case by case basis. What should be considered is how a photo can be assessed according to the concept "threshold of originality". Is this a photo that anybody with a camera would be able to make or is it a work of art, made by an artist with an original idea? As far as I'm concerned there is nothing original about this particular photo, just like most photos you can find in a daily newspaper. The identity of the photographer or the publisher is not a concern here, the date is though. Photographs that are works of art can be found here. At least it is not obviously a candidate for deletion so a formal request for deletion should be made if you are still not convinced. Thuresson (talk) 21:40, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

The issue with that file is simple. The source is too vague about licensing. If the source gave an explicit license for the file rather than just saying "free", it could be hosted on Commons. See COM:L for appropriate licenses. INeverCry 17:37, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
All I know is what you say since I can't see the source or whatever information was originally supplied by the uploader. If I knew maybe the "issue" could be addressed and correct permissions sourced. If I knew where the damn thing came from I could contact the author or do a clean reimplemention myself. Hundreds of pages linked to that image and you deleted it without a word notifying anyone. A file that was "free" however imperfectly documented and no one ever complained about until some editor decided to nitpick at it and have it trashed. Barsoomian (talk) 08:28, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

I deleted it per COM:PRP.

We are short on admins who want to close DRs and, from what I've seen, a large number of these small size/no EXIF mass DRs never get commented on at all. Here's a mass DR by me that is still open with no comments from over a month ago. I'm just doing my best to take care of these DRs and keep Commons from having a huge backlog.

I deleted it because it's a complex copyrighted logo. OTRS permission from the copyright holder is needed before the file can be restored. INeverCry 08:12, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Please try to understand me:
* I gave the agreement message I received from the company
* I asked "using aide" how I sould formalised this agreement
I never received any answer nor comment and you decided to delete the file without any telling me what I should have done! This is not the right approach to push the people to contribute to Wikipedia.Pano38 (talk) 08:27, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Mag cover

INeverCry, something is wrong with your page width! Anyway, can you delete this file File:Sanchari mag.png? My own old upload. That time I thought since I bought the magazine, I own it! --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 09:21, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Alright I have tried to fix it, I had to do a minor edit and remove the space at the beginning of a sentence! --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 09:24, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

English message Hi,

It's stupid to supress this poster (Walking_Dead_3.Sezon_Resmi_Posteri.jpg) because it's an pub. You think AMC has forbiden to broadcast this pub ?

So, you can accept this poster for I can put here:

Thank you, and for your information the English Wikipedia has this poster: Sorry for my english because i'm french.

Message en Francais

Bonjour, je ne comprend pas pourquoi l'image Walking_Dead_3.Sezon_Resmi_Posteri.jpg a été interdite alors que c'est une pub. Je ne pense pas qu'AMC soit contre la diffusion d'une pub (ce serait un comble !). Donc, j'aimerais que vous autorisiez l'image afin que je puisse la mettre sur l'article:

Pour votre information le Wikipédia anglophone l'utilise sur cette article:

Merci et bonne continuation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thewalkingdead3 (talk • contribs) 10:06, December 27, 2012‎ (UTC)

I don't appreciate your use of the word "stupid" above. I would advise you not to use that word in future talkpage posts. As for the TV show poster, it's a blatant copyright violation. This is why it's used on as a non-free image. INeverCry 18:21, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Kaakkois-Suomen linnoitusketju.png

Can you please restore the image File:Kaakkois-Suomen_linnoitusketju.png? It need not be for long, it was lying in my need-to-work-on tabs so that I could use it as a reference, as I was about to make a better map with verifiable sources. You can also just upload it to Imgur if you wish, I only need it for local storage. Nelg (talk) 00:14, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

I've temporarily restored this so you can get a copy. Let me know when you've done so, or I'll re-delete it in a day or so. INeverCry 00:23, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Done, thank you :) Nelg (talk) 13:08, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Tito. I'll have to use that border myself for some future awards. Now I have a nice silver cup and a nasty one for my userpage. ;) I hope 2013 is a great year for you too! INeverCry 17:43, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Friuli-Venezia flag

Hello! The deleted file File:Friuli-Venezia_Giulia-Flag.png was used by quite a few WP articles, so I was thinking of recreating it from appropriately licensed elements. Problem is, the FOTW page from which it came shows a few variants, and I don’t know which was copied here. Is there any way you could temporarily undelete the file, or e-mail it to me, so I can identify the design—or just have a peek yourself and let me know what it looked like? The two most likely choices appear to be the one showing the eagle taking flight from a mural crown (which looks like a sort of castle) and the one with just the eagle displayed (in the classic heraldic posture: body vertical, wings spread to either side). The latter version might also have “FRIULI” written sideways in the hoist (on the left-hand side). Thanks for your attention.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 00:59, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

"the one showing the eagle taking flight from a mural crown (which looks like a sort of castle)" - this is what's shown exactly. INeverCry 01:03, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

You've deleted my image sp-santa, but it isn't a copiright of south park, i made it in the site spstudio... and it is my profile page of facebook... c'mon undelete it... it's IMPORTANT!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by John michael dorian (talk • contribs) 19:00, December 29, 2012‎ (UTC)

The image can't be restored. According to the copyright terms given at the SP-Studio site, "The commercial use of pictures created on is forbidden. You are not allowed to sell them, use them for advertising, logotypes or products (selling fake merchandising). Copyright infringements are against the law! Even if I do not sue you the producers of South Park might." This non-commercial license isn't allowed on Commons. See COM:L. The South Park material is also possibly a COM:DW issue.
