Poster of flowers[edit]

Hi Kaldari,

I have just used one of your excellente pictures to make a poster of white flowers: File:White flowers b.jpg. It is one of the best in the bunch... Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:03, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Nashville picture for my homepage?[edit]

Hi Kaldari,

I wanted to verify (FAQ writes, that I should), that I can use your picture from Nashville

Nashville skyline 2009

for my homepage. Can I use it as a picture in the header? (It's about my country [and soul] music)

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards Josh T. Cute

Sure you can use it all you want. I would prefer to not be credited anywhere. Thanks. Kaldari (talk) 07:02, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay. Thx again :) (I think, I'm commited to relate to the copyright holder under german law) Josh T. Cute

a heads-up[edit]

In 2011 you participated in Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb_(de-adminship 2). That discussion ended with User:Jcb losing his administrator privileges.

This note is to inform you that User:Odder proposed Jcb have unconconditional access to administrator privileges restored.

Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb (readmin) is scheduled to close on May 20th.

Phidippus[edit]

check out : http://salticidae.org/salticid/diagnost/phidippu/cardi-ph.htm

I think the spider picture you identified as Phidippus johnsoni is actually P. cardinalis. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 04:38, 20 May 2013 (UTC) I think I was wrong, anyway. I'll find that picture again. I've raised a couple of P. johnsoni and I don't think the one of yours I was looking at looks right, but the one I found had the wrong carapace color. I'm blind, obviously. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 05:16, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Oddly I never noticed before. All the P. johnsoni that I have seen have lacked the spots, but Edwards says that most specimens have the spots. My mistake.Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 12:06, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Dealing with the URAA[edit]

Hi, I see from your posts at Commons talk:URAA-restored copyrights that you are interested in tackling the problems that the URAA causes us here on Commons. I've started a new policy that might help, at Commons:Hosting of content released to the public domain globally. Could you have a look, and also add your thoughts to the talk page? I hope you will support it! --MichaelMaggs (talk) 10:40, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

hockey photos from Flickr[edit]

Hi! I uploaded a series of hockey photos from Flickr, but a bot seems to be unable to find them in the gallery :(. If you could approve them, I would be most grateful.

Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:37, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

@Hawkeye7: The problem is that the file pages don't link directly to the images on Flickr, just to the photoset. If you change the links on the file pages, the bot should be able to approve all of them. Kaldari (talk) 21:52, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Attribution for image[edit]

Dear Sir,

I would like to use your image of the "Twin-spotted Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus magister) in Phoenix, Arizona" available at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File%3ASceloporus_magister_Phoenix.jpg , in an extension-outreach publication related to pests in community environments. This publication is purely for educational purposes and has no commercial interests whatsoever.

However, the suggested attribution format, "By Kaldari (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons", is very different from the style I will be following for other pictures in my publication, which will most likely be much shorter and in the format:

"Photo by Abc Defghijk", or "Photo by Abc Defghijk, Lmnopqr.org".

Therefore for the sake of consistency, kindly let me know whether I may cite the images in the above formats, and if so, what name/affiliation should I use.

Thank you! Sincerely, Shaku

Shaku Nair, Ph.D. Assistant in Extension, Community IPM University of Arizona - Maricopa Ag. Center 37860 W. Smith-Enke Road Maricopa, AZ 85138-3010 Cell: (520) 840-9429 Office: (520) 374-6299

Looking for connections to the Honolulu Museum of Art[edit]

Aloha! I am guessing that you know someone from the Honolulu Museum of Art or an editor who works with them, from the bot that you ran that uploaded images from HMA. I used to live on Oahu, & someone from the Smithsonian asked me if I know of any Wikipedia or Wikimedia contacts in Honolulu. I am including below what I have been posting on the talk pages of Wikipedians in Hawaii. Peaceray (talk) 19:58, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Looking for editors to help with an Asian Pacific American edit-a-thon in Honolulu[edit]


WikiProject Hawaii.svg
On Oahu? Edit Wikipedia or Wikimedia sister projects? You are invited to help the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center with an Asian Pacific American edit-a-thon in Honolulu this September.
Smithsonian logo color.svg

Aloha!

Last summer I moved to the Seattle area after 14 years in Kailua on Oahu. I immediately fell in with the Cascadia Wikimedians User Group as it formed, joined its board and became its first president as well as the GLAM representative for Washington State.

Recently, Adriel Luis, Curator (Digital & Emerging Media) at the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, contacted me about setting up an edit-a-thon like the previous Wikipedia APA edit-a-thon. In addition to discussing one for Seattle, he wrote:

“It's awesome to learn about your past in Honolulu - I'm actually going to be there for another SmithsonianAPA project mid September, and thinking that this could be an opportunity to do an event there as well! I have lots of contacts with UH and the museums, but do you know of any contacts on the Wikimedia side out there?”

As I was working two jobs while I lived on Oahu, I did not have the opportunity to meet your or any other Wikipedians at the time. Hence, the reason why I am contacting you now.

If you would like to help, please contact me through one of these methods:


Mahalo,

De-adminship warning[edit]

This talk page in other languages:

Dear Kaldari, I am writing to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2015 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Re: Jim Morrison[edit]

There were some very detailed arguments presented at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Jim Morrison 1968.jpg, but you did not offer any explanation as to why you believed those arguments were valid or invalid. Carl presented 3 different US court cases showing that, according to US jurisprudence, derivative copyright protects only the new material contained in the derivative work, not the matter derived from the underlying work. Do you disagree with that assessment? If so, could you explain why? Kaldari (talk) 05:14, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Also, you should be aware that Joel Brodsky's estate is actively claiming copyright over this image: http://www.tmetta.com/brodsky.html, thus keeping this image on Commons may be putting the uploader and reusers at legal and financial risk. Kaldari (talk) 05:32, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Having accepted your appeal, next time, please avoid moving a file to be deleted soon, and avoid editing your post to my talk page too frequently in a short time. I had problems reading your post and deleting your questioned file.--Jusjih (talk) 19:42, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Sorry for the trouble. Kaldari (talk) 20:04, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
I could claim copyright over an image of Jimi Hendrix. Doesn't make me the actual copyright holder. How exactly could they own a photograph copyrighted to 2006 when Jim Morrison actually died in 1971? Even if Brodsky took the photograph in the 1960s or whenever it was, proof was presented at the IFD that there was no registration for the photo for either Brodsky or Elektra Records. Of course Brodsky is going to claim copyright on it as it's probably a good source of income. It's a bullshit argument.Dr. Blofeld (talk) 13:52, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • I agree. A copyright claim on a public domain work is clearly invalid. Unless there's something that multiple editors missed during the two deletion reviews (a registration or renewal), I don't see how the claim can hold water. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 14:10, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • A supposed 2006 copyright claim of someone who died in 1971? Something is obviously screwy with that, and with yet another deletion on dubious grounds. - SchroCat (talk) 14:44, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
As has been explained several times, no copyright registration was necessary since the photo was first published after 1963. If anyone can provide an example of this photograph (not a derivative work) being published without a copyright notice before 1978 (as the license tag claimed), I'll be very happy to undelete it myself. As it stands, there is simply no evidence that this photograph is public domain, but there is evidence that someone is actively claiming copyright over it (even if the year is bogus).

File:Gulfstream Park's giant sculpture - Pegasus slaying a dragon.jpg[edit]

I came across this image today which you uploaded. Problem; I believe it's copyrighted. There is no freedom of panorama in the United States for three dimensional works of art. See Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#United_States. The statue was recently constructed, and thus automatically enjoys copyright protections whether so labeled, registered, or not. Given that its license is incompatible with Commons and being that you're an admin, would you be so kind as to delete the image? Thanks, --Hammersoft (talk) 13:27, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

@Light show: The license you put on the image said it was published "without a copyright notice", which was clearly not true. I'll undelete the image, but please be sure to put the correct license tag on images in the future and link to any discussions about them. Kaldari (talk) 04:21, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Kaldari,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2016) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.

Thanks,
--Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 08:42, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Nephilidae demotion[edit]

I've been making fixes on the English Wikipedia for the demotion of the spider family Nephilidae to the subfamily Nephilinae, implicitly accepted by the World Spider Catalog since the genera now appear in Araneidae. Here, I created Category:Nephilinae and re-categorized appropriately, leaving a category redirect at Category:Nephilidae. I hope that was the right thing to do. There are two other categories that need fixing: Category:Videos of Nephilidae and Category:Unidentified Nephilidae, which I'm not sure how to handle. Can you please check what I've done and deal with anything else? I'm far from experienced in Commons editing. Peter coxhead (talk) 07:55, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

abuse filter syntax question[edit]

Quick question. Is there the ability to combine contains_any and regex. I am more interested in managing case sensitivity for file extensions. Thanks for any help and my inability to work it out myself.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:05, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: I don't believe there's any way to combine contains_any and regex, but I also can't think of any situations where you would use contains_any that couldn't be handled by a regex instead. What specific problem are you trying to solve? Kaldari (talk) 00:18, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
At enWS we have a problematic person uploading video files. Started as only webm, though starting to spread their wings. For many users unfamiliar with regex, I find "contains_any" easiest for admins to understand and to which to add. So maybe I will try this contains_any(lcase(article_text), ".webm", ".flac", ".ogg")  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:50, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Shoemaker 1821.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Why are people now able to upload mp3? If it is now a right, can I get it? I plan on uploading a few pre-1923 songs. Artix Kreiger (talk) 03:55, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
