Renaming Request for Psi1 Draconis[edit]

Hi Julian. Thanks for the explanation. Much appreciated and it makes total sense. In the future I will use the other criterion (#1) that you suggested. David.

Commons:License reviewer[edit]

Hi, I have been a active user on enWikipedia for some time. Of late I have been enjoying my time on commons. I have been going through Flickr files needing human review. I would like to help out here if possible. While trying to review one of the files a warning sign came up while trying to save this file so since then I refrained from doing so. I would like access to this tool if possible. Thank you and I hope this is not incorporate me requesting this on your talk page. FitIndia talk to me 20:54, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

@Fitindia: How do you know the linked file isn't an instance of flickr washing? While the license on flickr is compatible with Commons requirements, the uploader there says it was taken from Instagram, where I can find no evidence that the image has been licensed under CC-BY. –Juliancolton | Talk 18:20, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Juliancolton definitely an error on my part I took a second look and yes it seems to have been lifted and cropped from Instagram without permission. I think I should undo the review and tag it with no permission/license? FitIndia Talk 18:33, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

@Fitindia: Yes, agreed. Unfortunately, I think this shows that a little more experience and caution should be demonstrated before you become a reviewer. You're welcome to submit an application to Commons:License review/requests and try regardless. –Juliancolton | Talk 20:25, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Juliancolton am going to wait a bit before I do. I think I need some more time here before I request this tool. Thank you for taking the time out to explain. FitIndia Talk 20:42, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Your best shot 2018[edit]

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I'm wishing you all the best for the New Year and I hope you're going to have many memorable photo opportunities in 2019. With 2018 coming to an end, it's time to look back at the past 12 months. I'm curious – what would you consider your best shot of 2018 and why? I invite you to share your image and your thoughts in order to provide others with the opportunity to celebrate, learn, and enjoy:

Your best shot 2018

Thanks for all your effort in sharing your vision of the world with others under a free license!

Warmly, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 19:36, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Threshold of originality[edit]

Hello! I haven't got a lot of experience with Wikimedia Commons, so I want to answer: doesn't these logos of Slovak capital Bratislava meet threshold of originality and can I upload they on Wikimedia Commons? I don't know, where I can write my question, so I wrote to random administrator. :) Thank you very much. --MmichaelDr. (talk) 11:32, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi MmichaelDr.! I'm honored to be the randomly selected admin. :) Those logos are all made of simple text and shapes, and do not appear to pass the originality threshold. Some countries have special exemptions to this rule, or allow more broad copyright protection for simple images, but I can find no evidence here on Commons that Slovokia is one such case (see Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Slovakia). So, good to upload! –Juliancolton | Talk 15:00, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
