Jeremy. I have answered your notice for deletion on my talkpage. --FinnBjo 03:00, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Merchant's Cresent image[edit]

Hi Jeremy, I have seen the image you have uploaded from the Geograph Project. I have seen the same image on PennineWay's website and would like to make sure that the correct copyright was used to upload the image, seehere, you will also notice the straddle house. Regards, Captain Scarlet 15:08, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Hmm... I went throught that user's other photos on the geograph project, and it seems that he has uploaded a few that come from other websites. It is still possible, of course, that he maintains those websites, but to be safe I will put the image up for deletion. In the mean time, if you can get a replacement that would be good. Thanks, JeremyA 15:20, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I think it is the same thing concerning the straddle image. It's a bit worrying really, burt if needed I'll go on location. Captain Scarlet 20:58, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

PS: Sorry, it's this one Image:VictoriaQuays.jpg Captain Scarlet 21:01, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

I took the straddle image myself, so if it's used on another website they got it from here. JeremyA 22:56, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
OK, no problem. Doesnt attribute like require them giving the source ? Captain Scarlet 23:32, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
If a website is using my photo then I should be attributed in the manner that I specified as part of the CC-by-sa-2.5 licence. Is the photo on the website that you listed above?--I can't see this photo on that website. JeremyA

Mmmh, it appears they have a slightly different photo on the virtual tour. Sorry bout that, they're very similar. Captain Scarlet 06:10, 3 April 2006 (UTC)


You are now an admin here on the Commons. Congratulations! In case you haven't found it yet, CheckUsage is a very useful tool for seeing where images are used. Cheers, User:dbenbenn 17:45, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

No problem, congratulations. If you ever want some advice on anything 'round here, feel free to ask. pfctdayelise (translate?) 03:52, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Best wish for your adminship.--Jusjih 16:35, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Sure thing. Thanks, and congrats and good luck to you too! —UED77 20:33, 4 April 2006 (UTC)


While it is true that categories and articles are not mutually exclusive, it is true that articles are preferable to categories, at least at the end nodes. For example, I wouldn't recommend creating a "Cities in Illinois" article in place of the "Cities in Illinois" category. What would go in it? On the other hand, city articles provide a superior format for organizing and presenting media. Rklawton 03:29, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

I know this is Jeremey's talk page, but I do tend to work with Jeremy on other projects and so I've noticed your question, I hope you don't mind Jeremy. The Commons are here to host media, not articles like the encyclopedae do. Since media has to be sorted so it can be found and used on encylopedic articles, it is found in categories. It is easier and quicker to maintain a sorting tree organised around categories arther than articles. The end node will simply be the media in turn sorted in categories. Since i actively participate on three encyclopedae i use much media from the Commons and add the Commonscat tag rather than the commons one as categories contain more media and don't need updating them selves. Hope this helps, regards, Captain Scarlet 09:47, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Sheffield Midland Station[edit]

Hi Jeremy, how do you like that Image:Sheffield Midland Station - plan.png. Thought you'd like it. I've also concocted a plan of the Sheffield Electric Tramways. Regards, Captain Scarlet

Nice one, it looks good. One suggestion and one question: From the numbering of the buildings it looks like you are going to add a key--maybe the platform numbers (which I realise you have made smaller) could be in a different font to really distinguish them. Also, Isn't Sheaf House gone/going? I had thought about doing a tramway map, but when I looked at it I found it pretty daunting, which is why I decided to try the railways instead. Thanks, JeremyA 14:37, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
Mmmmmmh tramway map. I do realise Sheaf House's gone but it was part of the station and the Br administration. I'll think about the difference in fonts or even numbering (using letters instead for the key) Captain Scarlet 20:03, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
The tramway map looks great! I've uploaded versions of the railway map for c.1855 and c.2005; c1930 is coming along, but is the most complex of the lot (the 1921 OS map of Sheffield city centre is almost 1/3rd railway—BTW. you know anything about the Nunnery Colliery Railway? I think that it possibly deserves an article). JeremyA 03:38, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
I do. I hope you include all the goods stations that used to be in the centre near all the markets. Pity you can't go to Waterstone's as the Godfrey Maps are a wealth of information. I used to have my great uncle's brother or something that worked at that colliery... I have been to Crich so have photos of the you-know-whats from you-know-where as well as plans for all tramway systems in the area: Rotherham, Barnsley, Mexbro, Doncaster: they'll have their own article and plan. If you want to help, you'll be most welcome, that can be an expansion from the Sheffield Project. You'll find that trams were connected from Sheffield to Mexbro so it is not entirely off-topic.
I know my plans don't look as good as some others made with expensive imaging suites but it's all about the information, and it's there. I have changed the referencing on the Midland Station plan and added a key. It is clearer indeed, cheers. I have noticed your upload but I am confused at what is Grange Station. Is is at the LC in Ecclesfield ? From what i know, Meadoahall Station (on SYR/GCR) is on Grange Mill Lane. I'm wondering if they're not the same station. Unless if Grange Lane Station is where I went the other day on the road from Thorpe Hesley next to the M1... Tell me more ! Captain Scarlet 08:37, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
I was hoping that you might be able to tell me something about it! Grange Lane station is marked on the 1855 OS map here. I had thought that Meadowhall station was to the south of this, but maybe I am wrong. Strangely this timetable from 1854 doesn't mention Grange Lane, however the diagram linked from this page shows (very faintly) platforms at Grange Lane. Other than that I have not been able to find much else out about this station.
The 1930 map will have sheds and goods stations on it. I have included Neepsend shed and Bridgehouses goods on the 1855 version, but it doesn't seem that there were many more in existence at that time. I have a big pile of Godfrey maps that I am working from--I'm maybe being a bit too anal about getting everything in the correct position, which is slowing me down a little.
I was half hoping that you might go to Crich to get some photos. When you started the tramway article I was frustrated because I think that I have some photos of Crich, but if I do they are locked up in Edinburgh (I have a storage unit there). JeremyA 21:44, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Well the diagram shows Grange Lane as a LC box, like I thought, and on the road that I thought. I went there on the 22nd after work, there's even track crossing the road. I think that form the maps you've shown me that the station was short lived, whilst the station at Meadowhall opened. My South Yorkshire Railway on old picture postcars does not mention Grange Lane... Grrr, annoying ! I had never been to Crich, and my great uncle randomly came up with the idea, so I went! I'll get photos uploaded when I have time. Meanwhile, I've created a template for tramways in South Yorkshire and Humberside, and started the Grimsby District Light Railway article. I'm gutted as there is a Grimsby Electric LR tramcar (the american looking ones) at Crich which I did not know, and missed. I've been told by Mrs Captain Scarlet that we are going back to Crich, so I'm not arguying or complaining! I might need your moderation skills on EN, but these can wait at least till tonight (GMT). Now.... work Captain Scarlet 06:40, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Image:860-880 Lake Shore Drive.jpg[edit]

Hi, you gave to that image CC-BY-SA-licence, but at the same time you write "© Jeremy Atherton 2006." AFAIK © means you are holding copyright for the picture which is a contradiction to CC-BY-SA-licence. You cannot leave it like that. Please, change the description to "Photo taken by Jeremy Atherton 2006", "Photographer: Jeremy Atherton 2006" or something like that. Shaqspeare 07:24, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Jeremy is free to have copyright of the image so long as the license is CC-BY-SA. Jeremy retains copyright, by licenses the image for use indicated by the license. Hope that helps. Captain Scarlet 14:36, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Sorry for my mis-interpretation of the ©-sign, I was wrongfully informed, in the mean-time I read more about the using of it in connection to the licence. Just a question: are you living in Chicago or were you only visiting the city? Shaqspeare 15:47, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
So... could you take some nice pics of IIT-buildings of Mies, as well as the new building by Koolhaas? The pic of 860-880 is really nice and I put it in pl:Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Or is the imaging of building facades in the US somehow reserved? Shaqspeare 16:25, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
Good work! It could be shot in a simmetrical manner... But photos of that kind as yours are pretty rare on the Wiki. Thanks! Shaqspeare 00:42, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
P.S. My foto of a Miesian work in Stuttgart is not even 10% as good as yours Image:Weissenhof Mies 1.jpg (ok, it was analogue camera). Did you take some pics of the chappel, boiler house etc.? I kow them all only from some old books. Shaqspeare 00:42, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
And another one now: Image:Weissenhof photo apartment house Mies van der Rohe Stuttagrt Germany 2005-10-08.jpg. Shaqspeare 00:58, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
There is one more to photograph: An IBM-tower, don't know if it's still IBM but it stand near the river bank on the outside of the street bend and next to some funny car park towers. Shaqspeare 16:59, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Image:Julie Delpy.jpg[edit]

Hi, I received permission to upload photos of max 300 px width and height here. Regards Arniep 15:29, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi I explained that to him which is why he introduced the 300px clause. Regards Arniep 15:52, 28 May 2006 (UTC)


Hi, i marked that for copyvio becouse last sentence in commericial licence for web: "It is not permitted to copy bigfoto pictures onto a web site and offer them for downloading." I guess that is just what commons does? There is also resrictions for print and tv. --Tomia 18:35, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

problem users[edit]

Hey Jeremy, don't be afraid to take a harder line with newbies who won't listen, and those who don't take the time to understand even the basic requirements. (ala User talk:UNFORGIVEN) If one "no source" notice gets ignored then 10 hundred will be ignored just the same. Some of the images you tagged no source were uploaded yesterday by the same user, and speedied as copyvios. I'm not sure if you got the "1 deleted edit" link or not but in cases like this I would strongly bend towards speedying again. eg. Image:LitaSault.jpg (ah, the link is in the "history" tab)... by viewing the deleted edit you can see that the user hasn't provided any new information.

It simply takes too much work and these stupid images hang around for far too long if we are overcautious. I wish we had an upload-only ban but so far, no luck. Short bans tend to have a greater impact than talk page warnings.

cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 09:53, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

OK, that's fine. I just wanted to give you some support in case you weren't used to taking a harder line. :) pfctdayelise (translate?) 03:09, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Valo3 images[edit]

These images you deleted were fastly restored? [1] [2] [3] They seem to provide correct information now, but it's suspicious... Can you give them another look?

Platonides 20:11, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

A new tool to help with deletions: FYI[edit]

it's called "Bad Old Ones". See e.g. [4]. I created a template, {{delete assist}} which should be put on subcats of 'Unknown'. I just put it on the month-level ones, if you want to put it on day-level ones you're welcome to. It will just automatically create the link to Bad Old Ones for that category.

It's good if you want to delete "easy" cases that aren't being used anywhere. :) There's also a 'safe delete' option which creates a backup copy on the toolserver. However Brion is working on undeletion of images at the moment and it might be fixed permanently very soon!

Some probable copyrighted images[edit]

Although I am a Wikipedia user, my knowledge about Commons is very limited. Thus, instead of trying to be bold and executing the steps, I prefer relying in someone who seemly knows about all this. With some time, I may consider learning about this namespace, but for now, I prefer staying away.

It is my belief that FatFox (talk · contribs) has been uploading copyrighted images to Commons. I crossed his path at w:PlayStation Portable, and after some study I arrived to my previous conclusion. Wikipedia user tried to link an image found in internet directly in the Sega Mega-CD/Sega_CD article. [5] This image was uploaded by FatFox at Commons, [6] when you tagged it [7] (from where I picked your talk page). The user tried to mark it as promotional, [8] but reverted to GFDL when he noticed the speedy tag. md5sum for the uploaded and the one found in internet is the same.

The user also uploaded Image:JapPSP.jpg From the Japans and Europes stores., which he marked for deletion later, [9] and is quite similar to others found in internet like this one.

He also uploaded Image:Sony PSP.jpg, which although I couldn't find anywhere, is quite similar to a promotional image found in internet, [10] which leads me to believe it is also copyrighted.

I marked the SegaCD as imagevio at Wikipedia, but guessed informing here would be the best option. Thanks for your time. -- ReyBrujo 04:17, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Colégio Santo Antônio[edit]

How I can hold the image in commons page, because you will delete it?

What I have to change in the image? This is a oficial logo so this image is granted to copy. -- Andrevruas 00:39, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Santo Antônio[edit]

"As you say, this is the official college logo, so the college owns the copyright and you can only upload it to the commons if you have written permission to do so from the college. JeremyA 00:55, 25 June 2006 (UTC)"

If I change or modify this image I can use it? (my own work?) -- Andrevruas 00:57, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

derivative work[edit]

"Changing or modifying the image creates a derivative work that is still copyright to the original copyright holder. The same is true for Image:Colegiovertice.JPG and any other of the images that you have uploaded that you did not create yourself. JeremyA 00:59, 25 June 2006 (UTC)"

"Derivative works, according to the US Copyright Act of 1976, Section 101 are defined as follows"

But I am brazilian... i have to take the brazilian laws or the united states laws?

sorting... so i can make a derivative work of the logo of this colege? -- Andrevruas 01:16, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

McCormick Tribune Campus Center[edit]

Just thought you might like to know your image of the McCormick Tribune Campus Center caught my eye. It looks like an interesting building. Thanks for uploading it. -- Solipsist 08:18, 28 June 2006 (UTC)


Im trying to update the info of Belanova, I have the url where I took it and the promotional template, the problem is I cant find a promotional template in spanish, could you help me?.

User :Rosarinagazo[edit]

I saw you warned and fixed erros from this user. The user is active in the Spanish wikipedia and has been blocked ad infinitum because of copyright violations. Watching his talk page and his contributions here I see he has been warned many times and still makes many "mistakes", so please let me know if he continues with that kind of behaviour here because in that case we would block him here too. Barcex 18:05, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

What the f***???[edit]

"Please stop uploading copyrighted images without the permission of the copyright holder. Thanks, JeremyA 21:11, 4 July 2006 (UTC)"

Without what? Please stop deleting my images without my permission. Thanks!" --Popdelux 21:28, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Commons-l subscription[edit]

Hello JeremyA/Archive01,

as per Commons talk:Administrators, I am asking all admins to subscribe to commons-l, a mailing list for Wikimedia Commons policy and project discussion. Since many admins are only on Commons infrequently, this is a good way to alert people about important happenings. The mailing list is nominally multilingual, but predominantly English.

If you are already subscribed to commons-l, I apologize for bothering you, and you are free to ignore this message. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail account, feel free to leave me a message, and I can send you a GMail invite. Traffic on the mailing list is relatively low, and we do not expect admins to read all messages to the list, but it would be nice if you could check on it at least every few weeks. Thanks for your time,--Eloquence 22:59, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

The Legendo of Zelda[edit]

I want to know how to upload successfully the logo of The Legend of Zelda. I don't know which license to put so that you don't erase it, and I also don't understand why can't I if it is already uploaded in the english Wikipedia. I hope you can clarify some of this question. Thank you.

But if I use the license of logo, would that be ok?

But here[11] says to use it when uploading a logo

my mistakes[edit]

sorry I'm new to Wikipedia. I think I fixed mistakes with the pics I uploaded. Can you please restore my rights. Thanks. --Charhally 06:57, 14 July 2006 (UTC)


I followed User:Charhally over here from Wikipedia, where he was spamming Wake Forest sub-sub-sub topics, and noticed that you had blocked him for repeat uploads of unsourced images. He responded to this by retagging them all GPL; in addition to being incorrectly licensed, they are still all unsourced. I've gotten through tagging a few of them so far... BTW, he inserted a comment on this talk page in a very bizarre place.[12] Postdlf 05:40, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi, the picture Celeste carballo.jpg has author name (Luciano Triviño) and i put the page name where i took it,the year, and the permission. I read the rules but i don't understand what is the problem? --Vocoder 09:46, 4 August 2006 (UTC)tanguero

Image:Faro maspalomas 1925.jpg[edit]

Just curious, what made you delete this so fast? As far as I could make out there only was a referral to Spanish copyright law, and users that wanted to make use (commercial or not) of it should contact ... which was why I put it up for deletion anyway, because I wanted to grant the uploader just some more time. Cheers, NielsF 02:57, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

If you don't mind I'll restore it and continue the deletion request, I had some serious doubts but just wanted to be sure. The first sentence: Para las empresas, corporaciones o instituciones de cualquier tipo, públicas o privadas, con o sin ánimo de lucro y para los particulares con fines comerciales o lucrativos la disponibilidad está sujeta a lo estipulado por la Ley de Propiedad Intelectual (Real Decreto Legislativo 1/1996, de 12 de Abril), in my mind translates to for enterprises, coroporations or institutions of any type, public or private, with or without commercial goals and for private persons with commercial goals the availability of the images is subject to the Law of Intellectual Property etc. because I'm not exactly sure of what it references to, especially for eventual future uploads, I'll contact a Spanish admin to be absolutely sure, that's ok? NielsF 03:12, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
It's been deleted already, you were right in the first place, I just completely misread the statement. Sorry for disturbing you. NielsF 15:20, 16 August 2006 (UTC)


Hi Jeremy, I understood you deleted my image because I was violating copyright? I took a picture of this show on TV with my camera phone and thought Wikipedia editors wouldnt mess with it since I had produced the picture. user:Minkyboy78 on Aug 23, 2006

So what type of images may I upload on here without having an administrator like yourself delete them?

Hi! Thanks for uploading this image. However, the Wikimedia Commons is a repository only for images that can be used freely for any purpose, and I think that this is not the case with this photograph. The sculpture depicted is likely still protected by copyright as the artist died less than 70 years ago, as such the photograph is a derivative work that would require aithorisation from the copyright holder (presumably the estate of Chaim Gross) before it could be published. I noticed that you have used the photo in an article on the English wikipedia, and I think that this photo would be an ideal candadate for a 'fair use' illustration in that article—I suggest that you reupoad the photo directly to the English Wikipedia and use one of the fair use tags, such as Statue. Thanks, —JeremyA 01:07, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you for telling me that, and especially for being so polite. I had wrongly assumed that things (art, buildings, etc) in public places were acceptable unless marked otherwise, so I have learned something. For my own part, I stick to GFDL and Public Domain, so I think I will not upload it to the English wikipedia as fair use. Of course please feel free to delete this photo from the Commons. Cheers! - Daderot 18:51, 27 August 2006 (UTC)


Hi. You deleted Image:Guadalupe-victoria.jpg. Could you tell me what the description said, so I can explain to the user what was lacking? Thanks. --Angus 07:45, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Image review petition[edit]

Hi there. Back here, it seems. I noticed someone added Image:Tarja turunen.jpg to the Nightwish article in the english Wikipedia, and after further checking it, I noticed it was uploaded in Commons with the {{Cc-by-sa-2.0}} tag although the image itself is not free for commercial purposes (licended apparently under Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0). Could you please review it? I believe this could be tagged with a speedy tag, but just like last time, I am not familiar with the process here, nor I want to be taken as a vandal for tagging speedy a (perhaps) valid image.

Sorry for bothering you again. -- ReyBrujo 18:00, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
