Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

Thanks, I'm flattered. :) Jahoe (talk) 08:21, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Distinctive emblem for cultural property.svg[edit]

Hallo Jahoe, I wondering a bit about your changes there. So is there any reference to remove the border-lines? All official refs seems to show with:[1], [2] User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?) 08:15, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Perhelion, first of all my apologies for taking so long to reply. For personal reasons I've been off wikipedia and -commons for more than a year.
  • I've tried to verify both sources you give. On the first one I get lost; I can't find what you mean. The second one seems to be off line all together.
  • I made this change (removing the border) because this image is in use on many templates on wikipedia (probably showing on thousands of pages). I felt the image should be as simple as possible.
  • I'm convinced that the borders are not part of the symbol itself. When I look around in my own living environment (shields attached to old buildings, etc.) I see no borders. But I admit I do not have an official source.
This is not a big deal for me however. If you feel you should revert my changes, or if you can improve the image in any way, then please go ahead.
Cheers :) Jahoe (talk) 22:50, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

File:Paul Marstrand.jpg[edit]

Dear Jahoe & Ellin Beltz

I have done further digging (tags & all) which confirm my initial claim: The photo *is* unquestionably public domain, in both DK ({PD-Denmark50) & US ({PD-1996}). Please see the full tags & my reply on the nomination page. As I've said I'm relatively inexperienced with this, but believe the photo should be kept. Naturally I don't care a whit whether it's as "own work-CC" or "PD", as long at it's freely available. I also apologize for any possible error in uploading it under the former status, but this was the first photo I ever uploaded (on WP commons), & I must say I had never imagined it would cause such a stir!

What would you recommend is now the correct (& appropriate) course? Should the photo (now it's going through a nomination process) be deleted, then possibly re-uploaded with the correct tags & text, or would it be sufficient (& correct - I don't want to do anything wrong anymore!!) to edit the file, affix the correct tags, & stop the process/withdraw the nomination?

Thanks infinitely for any help you can bring in this.

Sincerely, --Nielspeterqm (talk) 13:54, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello Nielspeterqm, I've answered on the nom page, and made some (detailed) suggestions there, hoping they will help. A few things remain:
  • No need to apologise. These things just happen. :)
  • About the course to follow now: I strongly suggest you edit the file info page. Then wait and see if the file is kept or deleted. A re-upload is not necessary.
  • About the stir you mentioned: for me personally it was the "own work" tag. Of course you're proud of your editing skills, but it doesn't change the legal status of the work. I've edited Andy Warhal's work, but can I base legal claims on that? Of course not. Also, any original artist deserves his credits, even when his work has fallen into PD, especially for a nice artistic portrait like this one. ;)
  • I'm quite impressed with the research on copyrights you've done, but also think that you're somewhat biased in your effort to have the file on commons. This file is not PD, not in DK, neither in the US. But perhaps others are milder than I am, let's wait and see.
Thank you for your message here, all the best to you. :) -- Jahoe (talk) 18:10, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
