Apologies for reuploading deleted content. I did not understand the procedure the first time, and submitted the proper permissions request the second time (Ticket#2018053110010031). I hope the file will be restored once the ticket is processed. Logan'sRunner (talk) 17:48, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes, if the permission is in order, the OTRS agent will restore the file. Please be aware that OTRS has a backlog of at least several weeks. Jcb (talk) 19:39, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

It's a completely different picture. The Flickr source of this one seems fine. Jcb (talk) 23:34, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I couldn't remember what the other pix were as I wasn't following too closely. I just saw that you had deleted one that had been previously uploaded. Just thought I would bring it to your attention if it was something that needed handled by an admin. Corky 01:41, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Farid Mansour (artist) photo deletion[edit]


I am referring to the deletion of some pictures from Farid Mansour (artist) page on Wikipedia. I think this deletion is not justified, since those pictures are already under CC BY-NC-ND as depicted in the website Furthermore I am the heir of the said artist and all those images and photos are in my possession. Appreciate your comments on the above as I need to re-publish those photos again properly without having to be deleted.

We do not accept NC and ND restrictions, see COM:L. Please contact OTRS to provide evidence of permission. Jcb (talk) 09:26, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Denis Beau[edit]


As far as File:Denis Beau.jpg is concerned, I have sent permission to on May 31.

Can you pleas restore it?

Thank you, --Swaf75 (talk) 17:05, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

As soon as an OTRS agent processes a valid permission, the file will be restored. Please be aware that this may take some time, OTRS has a backlog. Jcb (talk) 19:50, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Es en serio????[edit]

Esto es un chiste de mal gusto o una broma? nuevamente han vuelto a borrar mis fotos luego que les he enviado el permiso correspondiente. Pido de favor se restaure nuevamente y dejen de atacar mis contribuciones:

att:--LocoWiki (talk) 21:33, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Si un ticket de OTRS no se resuelve dentro de 30 días después nuestra primera respuesta, siempre borramos los archives, hasta que se resuelve el ticket. Usted debe tener paciencia, no puedo ayudarle en eso. Jcb (talk) 22:06, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
(CdE) Hi, Jcb. As History says, there is ticket:2018050310000344 where user grant permission (I handle the ticket as OTRS agent, and files were restore by request in Common/Undeletion request) . Please check and undelet. --Ganímedes (talk) 22:34, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
You never added the permission after undeletion, so that the files were deleted again after 30 days. I will restore the files. Please make sure to handle the permission properly within 48 hours or the files will be deleted again. Jcb (talk) 22:40, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
To do so, you must restore them first. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 22:43, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
Pardon? Please read my comment properly before responding to it. I am working on restoration, which you are deletion by your nonsense comment. Jcb (talk) 22:46, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
Don't you never be newe in anything? Don't you never had a conflict of edition? --Ganímedes (talk) 22:56, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
This was not an edit conflict, this was poor reading. Jcb (talk) 23:23, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Anyway, as you can read here, the files should never be deleted, and OTRS permission was no need. All it was a mistake. --Ganímedes (talk) 23:02, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Sincerelly, I don't understand your attitude. I've been collaborating with Commons per years, with no even one problem. I jointed OTRS less than one month ago, and close dozens of tickets... I think all this rush and sour messages are unnecesary, specially for files that doesn´t need a permission (If you just see the resolution, you'll see there was no reason for deletion; it was a mistake). Anyway, I thank you for telling my there were more files... All fixed, including categories. See ya. --Ganímedes (talk) 21:30, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

File:Tschudy, Theophil (1847-1911).jpg[edit]

Hi Jcb, are you sure your decision to delete this image was correct? The photo in question was taken in 1883 and the source can be found here. --Gnom (talk) 00:06, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

This user keeps uploading files with bogus licensing and false authorship information. This file e.g. was uploaded as cc-by-sa-4.0, with insufficient information to determine the real copyright situation. It was tagged as 'no permission' and deleted 7 days later together with several other files. If a user floods us with problematic files, this will normally result in mass deletion. If one file turns out to be safe and valuable, a genuine user can upload it again. Jcb (talk) 00:20, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
On 8 June 2018 you deleted this file (dated 1883) as a "copyright violation". Two days later you say it might be "safe and valuable" and encourage "a genuine user" to upload it again. That's fun. I hope I will be labelled as "a genuine user". Vysotsky (talk) 19:09, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Deleted files Netwerk Oorlogsbronnen[edit]

Dear Jcb,

On April 24 between 14:53-14:55, you deleted a number of files that were uploaded by @Jjorna: as part of an upload by Netwerk Oorlogsbronnen. The reason given was that all these images represented copyright violations. The uploader (and I) believe that this is not the case, and that lacking and/or conflicting information in the uploaded images can be added and/or corrected (where necessary) in such a way that the images can stay on Wikimedia Commons. Since you are the deleting administrator, we would like to work with you to correct this issue, and we would be glad if you could provide more exact information on why you thought that these images should be deleted.

I have a complete list of the images that were deleted in this way and can provide that to you if necessary.

I'm looking forward to working with you, and I apologize for the late reaction on this issue. Best, --AWossink (talk) 14:08, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

I have sent you to OTRS in your native language. Is there a specific reason to try to avoid to follow the official process? Jcb (talk) 15:01, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
No, there is not, and "avoiding the official process" is not what I'm trying to do. But the problem is not with OTRS. As I understand it, a number of these images were deleted because of an empty license field. However, the source from which these images came had a correct license displayed. I also understand that it is common to give an uploader some time to correct mistakes like these before they are removed. So that is why I am asking you, as the administrator who deleted the files, if you could help us resolve this case. Best, --AWossink (talk) 15:16, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
For every picture where the photographer did not die before 1948, you need to provide evidence of permission from the (heirs of the) photographer to OTRS. Jcb (talk) 15:42, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Deletion request for one of the photos I uploaded.[edit]

I already categorized the pic so I don't understand why you marked it as "Out of scope."

— Preceding unsigned comment added by AbeLuna (talk • contribs) 20:23, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
With or without categories, it's useless for educational purposes due to poor quality. Jcb (talk) 21:02, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Deleted photos with Permission?[edit]

Hi. There are some photos you deleted, even though I had contacted the owners of the content and they gave permission. I believe that the owner of these two photos has not forwarded the permission email yet, although I have been granted permission by email - File:SG4GE Steven Daigle.jpg and File:SG4GE Arpad Miklos.jpg

I suppose I will have to wait until that email goes through, then re-upload them.

However, in the case of these photos - File:Kory Luke Jockpussy.jpg and File:Luke Aiden Jockpussy.jpg

...I already contacted the content owner, received permission, and was told the permissions email had been forwarded.

What exactly went wrong here? Did upload these incorrectly? What should I have done instead? Thanks. Satyricon2 (talk) 15:20, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

OTRS has a backlog. As soon as a valid permission is processed, the OTRS agent will take care of undeletion. Jcb (talk) 15:22, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

You missed the first edit - the info is still on the page, also, so needs to be removed (which I can't do because of edit filters). 18:03, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
I deleted the content, but there are too much versions now to hide them all. Next time please go to COM:AN with this kind of issues. Jcb (talk) 14:45, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Adrian De Gerlache de Gomery's photos[edit]

Hi Jcb. Please why do you deleted the photographies of Racovitza taken 1898 by Adrien de Gerlache deceased 1934 (more than 70 years), issued from his book Le premier hivernage dans les glaces antarctiques, published 1902 in Brussels? Have the rules of Commons recently evolved? Thank you, --Nihil scimus (talk) 07:40, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Please provide links. Now it's completely unclear to me what you are talking about. Jcb (talk) 14:49, 16 June 2018 (UTC)


Hi. Why did you delete these? What made you think the subjects were underage?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 05:55, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

I don't remember. There must have been a complaint somewhere, because the files were not in any maintenance category. And yes, I think these files are high risk (and out of scope anyway). Jcb (talk) 11:37, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

Deleted file "robtinyhstr1.jpg"[edit]

The picture has been deleted on 3rd of June because of "no permission". It took some time but now we got the written permission of the photograph Robert Haas. Sehr geehrtes Support-Team, ich, Astrid Grolla, erkläre in Bezug auf das Bild »Robtinyhstr1.jpg«, dass ich »Robert Haas«, die Inhaberin/den Inhaber eines vollumfänglichen Nutzungsrechtes, rechtmäßig vertrete.

This was what I had sent to Heinrich Stricker and the photograph:

Ich erlaube hiermit jedermann die Weiternutzung des Bildes unter der freien Lizenz »Creative-Commons-Lizenz „Namensnennung – Weitergabe unter gleichen Bedingungen international“ in Version 3.0«. Ich genehmige somit in urheberrechtlicher Hinsicht Dritten das Recht, das Bild (auch kommerziell oder gewerblich) zu nutzen und zu verändern, sofern sie die Lizenzbedingungen wahren.

Please contact OTRS. All third party releases should go via OTRS. They can undelete the file if there is a valid permission. This may take some time, because OTRS has a backlog. Jcb (talk) 11:40, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

This ticket was processed by @Ruthven: and the images you are now deleting with unanswered Subst:OP templates were overlooked by him, all the images (and ticket number) could be found at Category:Media contributed by Art Hanoi at which all those images are a member. It's already affecting Wikipedia, please see this. Please undelete them immediately. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 06:07, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

@Donald Trung: I got it: the "OTRS pending" template was still there even if the "PermissionOTRS" had been added. My mistake. Probably Jcb didn't checked and saw the files with an overdue deletion. Jcb, I leave you restore those file (the ones that had the "PermissionOTRS"). Cheers, Ruthven (msg) 07:00, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
The ones that I checked did not have the PermissionOTRS template. I will restore the files, @Ruthven: please process them. Jcb (talk) 09:26, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
I have restored the files and changed the date of the template to prevent them to be deleted by a different admin today again. The files are scheduled for deletion the day after tomorrow if nothing happens. Jcb (talk) 09:34, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
Bedankt voor het herstellen van de bestanden, daarom prefereer ik met een sjabloon te werken waar de OTRZ kaartje al in is verwerkt. Ik denk dat Ruthven het morgen wel allemaal heeft opgelost, ik ga alle categorieën waar zij nog in zijn verzamelen en het hem vertellen, prettige dag nog verder en dit kan gearchiveerd worden (als je het zelf wil).

File:Beaufort-en-Vallée (49) Église Notre-Dame - intérieur - Baie 28-08.jpg[edit]

No source. No authorship information, unknown copyright situation. Jcb (talk) 15:48, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Avant que de proposer à la suppression un quelconque fichier, veuillez vous donner la peine de cliquer sur les liens qui lui sont associés. En l'espèce, je pense que la notice Palissy est suffisamment explicite pour pouvoir répondre à vos pseudo-interrogations, mais aussi aurait-il fallu que vous daigniez la lire. Au surplus, j'avais bien pris le soin de recopier sur la catégorie "Baie 28 de l'église Notre-Dame de Beaufort-en-Vallée", ce après les avoir vérifiées, les informations parfaitement pertinentes qu'un autre contributeur avait judicieusement postées à l'appui de son versement préalable au mien d'une image de l’œuvre incriminée. Quand bien même tous ces renseignements n'auraient pas été portés à la communauté Wikipédia, rien ne vous dispensait du minimum d’honnêteté et de désintéressement intellectuels qui eût consisté à pallier un défaut de sources, de références, par l'apport d'une contribution corrective résultant de vos propres recherches sur la toile, ce qu'assurément vous n'avez même pas envisagé de faire. Navré que de devoir être désagréable, mais je passe suffisamment de temps à décrire, sourcer et géolocaliser les fichiers que je verse sur Commons pour éviter de voir mon travail réduit à néant par des contributions aussi inutiles que destructrices.
