If you go to Special:Preferences, there's a checkbox under E-mail for "E-mail me when my user talk page is changed". This is an amazingly handy feature (one that I wish all the wikis had), and will (surprise surprise) send you an email if anyone leaves you a message here.

Kaldari, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net. Also consider joining #wikimedia-admin, the cross-wiki coordination channel for Wikimedia administrators. Any member of the channel can invite you in temporarily, but you need an invite exemption from a channel operator to get in whenever you want. Please come to #wikimedia and ask for an invite. Any admin from any project is welcome.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references....
Congratulations!!!! My stock advice: take it slow and easy at first. Ask for help if you need it or are unsure, lots of folks out there to give it. Have fun! Best wishes. ++Lar: t/c 21:52, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

PS, you need to do the update to Commons:List of administrators by adminship status in other Wikimedia projects yourself as I don't know what your other projects are (or am too lazy to run the utility I know that can tell me :) ) ++Lar: t/c 21:59, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Kaldari!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

SVG images[edit]

hi, first of all, thanks for having my work in such a high steem :P i dont think i am that good. as for your questions: i usually work in adobe illustrator. i have worked before in inkscape but find it much less confortable. About the fonts. i usually convert the fonts to outlines to get sure that the image is always shown correctly. since wikipedia has problem with font sizes. if you still want to add them as font, then use arial or verana or any other really common font since when opening the file the computer uses the fonts in the rading computer. no font is saved in the file. about the suboptions, well i usually remove the keeping illustrator capabilities since it makes files bigger, but the others i keeps them in a way that they create less ENTITY tags.. will explain... there is something about illustrator files. wikipedia has a problem showing those files as they come out from illustrator.in some sizes they dont show sometimes they do show but in thumbnail dont and so to aboid this. you need to open the svg file in a text editor. on the start of the file there are some ENTITY tags, inside those there are words followed by a text inside " " so what you need to do is to find this word in the next paragraf, and substitute the adress or text inside the " " for the word. finally after doing so remove the whole entity tags that are between <>. save and it is done. hope this is clear enough try it a couple of times and if you got trouble let me know and will try to explain it more clearly - LadyofHats (talk) 17:53, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Sounds like the sort of tip that should be put on an SVG help page somewhere on this wiki :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 08:26, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Possible copyvios[edit]

The 1st image has a copy at File:University of the City of Manila.jpg, uploaded by PLMayer, who also uploaded File:UCM logo.jpg. All state it is the own work by uploader. As he's had the university's logo and similar items deleted before, would you mind looking into it? Revelian (talk) 21:48, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Re: CC-meta[edit]

The two main things are: allowing for any combination of CC versions and auto translation (the translations itself can be gather from what we already have). There also will need to be some kind of check for non-existent licenses, because right now, for example, you can use it for {{cc|by|sa|2.5|de}} which doesn't exist but that didn't stop some users from creating Template:Cc-by-sa-2.5-de (and now about 140 images are without licenses). But, yes, after it's finished, the plan is to move it to {{cc}}. Users can then use CC licenses in what I consider the easiest and most logical syntax, e.g. {{cc|sa|1.0}} or {{cc|by|sa|2.5|3.0}}. Rocket000(talk) 22:22, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh yeah, and it should insert a {{Noncommercial}} or {{Nonderivative}} if someone tries using "nc" or "nd" for one of it's variables. Rocket000(talk) 22:31, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I think it should be made on a per-case basis (I have {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual}} in mind, which is a valid license template). Diti the penguin 21:14, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Actually, that template will be problematic once we migrate to the new dual licensing scheme, since your image will then be licensed under both cc-by-sa and cc-by-sa-nc (which doesn't make sense). Kaldari (talk) 23:26, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

invalid licence for Leptopterna dolobrata01.jpg[edit]

hello Kaldari,

I suppose you refer to http://www.entomart.be/contact.html, so in french it is written Les photographies sont libres de tout droit... Vous pouvez les télécharger gracieusement pour votre usage personnel. Cependant, pour toute publication ou utilisation commerciale, les clichés reproduits devront nécessairement être accompagnés de la mention ©Entomart. Entomart souhaite cependant en être informé (adresse mail ci-dessous), mais ceci sans aucune obligation. Merci

That means that commercial use is valid, that picture need attribution, and that the author wish to be informed, but this is not a request. I know, this is a home-made free licence, it should be better that the author use standard cc-by-sa.

thanks Jeffdelonge (talk) 13:38, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

You are right, the english version of the licence is a poor translation. One year ago, i had mail exchanges with the author Claude Galand, Jeffdelonge (talk) 15:33, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
this not the only picture, i had upload a lot Category:Entomart and it had been already debated Jeffdelonge (talk) 15:44, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
no, licence in native language is valid, and is as free as GFDL which require 4 leaves licence annexed. The only requirement of this licence is to attribute picture to Entomart. i dont see what is the problem Jeffdelonge (talk) 06:51, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Category:Wikipedia Loves Art at the Hunter Museum of American Art[edit]

Hi Kaldari, I see you've created Category:Wikipedia Loves Art at the Hunter Museum of American Art. This is a strange category because you mix a source category (images from the WLA project) and a topic category (images related with the Hunter Museum of American Art). All the images should be placed in Category:Hunter Museum of American Art and (a subcategory of) Category:Wikipedia Loves Art. Multichill (talk) 10:44, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

What subcategory would you suggest? We have ~3500 images from 15 museums. It seems like it would be logical to create a subcategory under Wikipedia Loves Art for each museum. I'm open to suggestions though. Kaldari (talk) 15:27, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
We have to respect the museums that participated, and that means making a category of all their images from the project (their "source category") easily accessible. Each museum is a different entity and ran its own autonomous competition. Ideally of course, we will also have topical subcategories for different types of works at a museum, such as "American paintings at the Hunter Museum of American Art".--Pharos (talk) 03:51, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
I assume since you haven't replied on my talk page or here that you have no further opinion on the matter. Please let me know if you still have concerns about the category structure for Wikipedia Loves Art. Kaldari (talk) 16:16, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
You assume too much ;-) I'm somewhat short on time. I tend to respond eventually. The mixing of source and topic categories causes horrible situations so just keep them separated. Multichill (talk) 17:05, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
As Pharos elaborated on above, the combined source and topic category is quite useful in this situation. I'm reluctant to abandon it in favor of one giant 3000 file category without knowing more about the "horrible situations" it would cause. I understand it's not the standard practice, but this is a bit of a unique situation, FWIW. Kaldari (talk) 17:21, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
It's not an unique situation. We get lot's of image donations and all potentially face the same problem. Sure you can split out your source category if you really want that as long as you also place the image in the right topic category and not make the source category a child of a topic category. Multichill (talk) 17:26, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
This is the only case I'm aware of where a single donation event spans more than one source institution. Kaldari (talk) 17:29, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

File:Entrance_to_Wellington_Park,_Somerset.jpg[edit]

You just deleted File:Entrance to Wellington Park, Somerset.jpg despite the DR that was earlier closed as keep. Can you please correct your mistake. --Tony Wills (talk) 21:47, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

It's not good adminship to delete an image after another admin closed it as kept. Please undelete the image. Multichill (talk) 22:50, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Thanks for restoring it :-). You do know that we usually keep original versions and don't delete things as "superceded"? --Tony Wills (talk) 20:36, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
    • In this case, the new image obviously superseded the original. The original had obvious haloing, stitching errors, poor color balance, and distortion due to choosing a bad projection algorithm. Additionally, if you look at both images at full res, you will see that the level of detail is comparable, as large portions of the original had to be up-sampled due to the projection. The original is completely unused and should never be used, IMO. I see no logical reason to oppose the uploader's wish to delete the original file, other than making sure that they become completely frustrated with Wikimedia and stop uploading files for us to use. Also, I think the closer's complete dismissal of the uploader's comments ("No valid reason given") was pretty insulting, especially considering that the uploader had waited several months for the request to be evaluated. So let's look at the scorecard: Commons gained 1 crappy, redundant image, but lost the good-will of a talented uploader. I don't see how that helps the project. Kaldari (talk) 21:59, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
You are an admin? You should know that the appropriate course of action is to re-open the deletion request, not over ride a decision made through normal processes here if you disagree with the outcome. --Tony Wills (talk) 23:02, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
I suggested that to the uploader, but understandably, she wasn't interested in waiting another 2 months to be curtly dismissed again. When did Commons become such a dysfunctional bureaucracy? Yes, I broke the rules, but I thought it was worth a shot to keep the uploader from becoming more upset (and needlessly so). Oh well, I tried. Kaldari (talk) 23:26, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Don't go spin this around. This is not about bureaucracy, this is about admins breaking our own rules and causing a lot of havoc. Multichill (talk) 08:37, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

Dear Kaldari, did u start the upload of the images yet? Since Phase 4 was completed. Please update Commons:Batch uploading/Wikipedia Loves Art saying what templates are used and where images are categorized. I also find {{WLA}} placement with images to be very unintuitive. Wouldn't a substituted Information template be much better? With the description being wiki text, a template in the source saying that it's from Wikiloves art under XX team name and so on (First part of the {{WLA}} template. Then in author it would contain another template if you wish that contains the last part of {{WLA}}? Instead of just having this big bubble in the Description parameter. This would also make description improvement easier and give a better overview of the files.--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 09:30, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Loves Art: Uncategorized uploads[edit]

It seems that some of the uploads only have the (hidden) WLA categories. Would it be possible to add at least one topical one, e.g. the suggested "Category:Paintings in the Hunter Museum of American Art" or at least a general Category:Hunter Museum of American Art one. I think this would make it easier for people to categorize them. I doubt people will dig them up in Category:Media needing categories as of 22 September 2009. -- User:Docu at 18:42, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I thought User talk:Lokal_Profil#Potential featured picture? might interest you =). /Lokal_Profil 15:19, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi, it was something that caught my eye as a potential en:wiki FP. Lokal Profil very kindly added source information to the file. Do you agree this would be a good candidate? Durova (talk) 20:14, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I think it would make a good featured picture. It definitely has a lot of EV. Kaldari (talk) 16:48, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Question about migrated GFDL-en[edit]

Hi, I saw you listed under the migration task force and I have a question: if I create a derivative work of an image licensed under a {{Cc-by-sa-3.0-migrated-with-disclaimers}} can the result be licensed under {{Cc-by-sa-3.0}} (because of the "same or similar license" part of CC)? I'm asking because there is no license with disclaimer (I can find) that omits the "migrated" part. That question occured at the derivative work File:Ballerina-icon.jpg to which I added the license of the original, but it seems wrong because now the page states "This licensing tag was added to this file as part of the GFDL licensing update." which only happened to the original. Thanks Hekerui (talk) 17:59, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this up. Please see User talk:Dragons flight#CC templates with disclaimers. My opinion is that the disclaimers are not necessary if relicensing the derivative under CC-by-sa. You should be able to choose to relicense the derivative under GFDL with disclaimers, CC-by-sa (without disclaimers), or both. The confusion is due to sloppy wording of the GFDL 1.3. I'll let you know if I hear anything back from Dragon's flight on the issue. Kaldari (talk) 19:04, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Re: Florida location map[edit]

Hello
It's ok to make a version of this map without the scale if you like but I don't see well the necessity to modify the license. Asking to re-distribute the map under the same license is not a big issue imo and it grants (at least theoretically) that anybody will be able to re-use it under the same condition.
Sting (talk) 16:02, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

The issue with the license is mainly related to derivative works. Because location maps are commonly combined with other data or graphics to create derivative works, copy-left licenses (such as cc-by-sa or GFDL) can be problematic. It is preferable that basic maps designed for derivative use be released under more permissive licenses such as cc-by or cc-zero. For example, if a GFDL or GPL graphic is combined with a cc-by-sa location map, the resulting graphic is unlicensable (as neither license can fulfill the terms of the other). We have to delete such derivative graphics from Commons fairly often. There is also the issue of consistency. Right now we have 49 cc-by US state location maps and 1 cc-by-sa US state location map. It would be unfortunate if someone had to abandon a project due to that 1 map with a different license (or didn't even notice that one of the maps had a different license than the others).

Hi!

I write to you because you are listed here Commons:PD_files/reviewers#List_of_PD_reviewers.

Perhaps you would like to come back and take a look at some of the remaining files?

Painting deletions[edit]

File:Blumenschein Superstition.jpg was uploaded yesterday. I found it in Special:Newfiles. I thought I was helpful browsing these new files, tagging some obvious copyvios with {{Copyvio}}, and less obvious, copyright status unclear ones with {{Delete}}.

After I found File:Blumenschein Superstition.jpg, I browsed the corresponding categories, and other similar categories, (File:Taos Society of Artists founders.jpg was the connection with Joseph Henry Sharp) and that is how I found your uploads.

My intention was to nominate only one or two, or four or five (among those which are the closest to 1923; the paintings, not the lithographies) but not the whole category.

I am sorry for saying what made you reply that you feel insulted. I didn't know you had been employed by the WMF. I said what I said because I am sad, because I can't fight against Mike Godwin.

I can't on one hand ask small uploaders to upload only files with a clear copyright status, and say nothing when the WMF pushes for massive uploads of copyright-unclear files. The WMF is destroying the precautionary principle.

So I need to leave this project, although it was a project I used to enjoy taking part in. I was back after an absence of many weeks, but I am leaving again. Some time ago I was called an "idiot" on the foundation list. The idiot is leaving. Teofilo (talk) 08:22, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm glad to hear the slight was not intentional. I think you may have a valid point for some of these paintings, but I would personally like to see them kept unless there is some compelling evidence that they are probably not public domain. Considering that I spent nearly a year working on the Wikipedia Loves Art project, I'm sure you can understand my desire to defend the images from being deleted. I'm not trying to destroy the precautionary principle. I'm just applying it a bit more conservatively :) Kaldari (talk) 01:23, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Issue with 2 pictures or are PD-OLD and PD-art tags useless?[edit]

Hello, Kaldari. Since you are both an administrator at English wikipedia and at Commons I believe you can help me out. I have an article which is being nominated to Featured status on Portuguese navigator en:Pedro Álvares Cabral. All that is left to the article to be passed are 2 images in it which an editor has issues with it. They are:

File:Pedro alvares cabral 01.png - a lithography made by George Mathias Heaton (1804 – after 1855) and Eduard Rensburg (1817-1898)
File:Miniature of Pedro Alvares Cabral.jpg - miniature made by Roque Gameiro (1864-1935)

On both pictures I used the PD-art tag due to the type of images and their authors' date of death. This editor who I mentioned says that it is not enough neither the tag nor the author's date of death. I need to prove that both pictures were also published before 1923. Is that correct? According to him, I need to prove that every single image I upload, no matter if the author died more than 70 years (or even in this case, more than 110 years ago), was published before 1923. So, if the PD-art and PD-old are useless, why do they exist at all? So the PD-1923 tag is the only one that we can use? If that's the case, why that is not told? Please, I would really like to hear an imput on this subject. P.S.: Answer me on my talk page, please. Kind regards, --Lecen (talk) 18:44, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

As discussed at Commons talk:Sexual content, it looks like people have finally talked themselves out about this policy and are ready to vote on it. According to the vote text I wrote up, which was supported in a preview thread, the vote runs for 10 days starting when the Commons site notice is altered to advertise it. Because you're the last person to edit the site notice and an uninvolved party in the discussion, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could look over this vote and, if you feel it's right to do, place the site notice advertising it and thus beginning the 10-day period.

Quick n00b copyright Q[edit]

Hey Kaldari, help me out? I took a picture of some cool wall graffiti inside the Tower of London in January (you can see it on the Historic Royal Palaces site here, the second one from the top). Does my photo of it count as my own work or derivative? How does that work, license-wise? As My Very First Article,tm I want to write about that Castiglione dude and include the pic. But I suppose that might also mean My Very First Commons Upload,(tm) too... ahhh! Scary. Thx in advance! --Accedie (talk) 17:14, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

The original graffiti is both public domain due to age, and likely too simple to qualify for copyright protection anyway. You should mark your photograph "own work" and license it as you choose. Kaldari (talk) 17:30, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
Much obliged, as always! Enjoy your weekend, and I'll seeya on Monday :) --Accedie (talk) 18:11, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Hi there. There are two related deletion discussions that seem to have stagnated, as no admin has weighed in yet (c.f. 1, 2). They both involve images that were uploaded by a sockpuppet [6] of a banned Commons user, one Brunodam. Despite this, the user has attempted to participate in the discussion and sway the outcome in his favor. He has claimed both files as his own work, although each dates from at least the early 20th century. He has also misrepresented the subject and location of one of them, a file which was actually deleted in the past when he attempted to upload it using another account (deletion rationale: "Deletion of files added by NBDA: Abusive sockpuppeteer"). I have documented the specifics on each deletion discussion page, with the requisite links. Can you please have a look and help break the stalemate?

Copyvio issues[edit]

Hi,

I'm a non-admin Wikipedia volunteer who has a solid history of uploading pictures, usually without problems. People have emailed me pictures, and given me explicit permission to use them in Wikipedia. What I'm finding is that many of my pictures are being put up for deletion on what I consider dubious grounds -- that is, I feel I'm being picked on in connection with a brouhaha over the Paul Revere-Sarah Palin controversy by another user named User:CutOffTies. And I'm being asked to cross every t and dot every i. So, I'm wondering, can you please help me understand how to do the OTRS system? Must I have every person who took a photo, or if they're a person in in the photo, email explicit permission, one at a time? Or is there a way to streamline this process? Please note that I'm a volunteer who has given his time freely to help raise serious $$$ for Wikimedia Foundation (by doing an editing for donations project in which WMF got a serious check from an indie music label); it is unlikely I will keep volunteering if I am treated unfairly. Please help me understand what I should do to keep the pictures. And which persons or which forum can I turn to for help?--Tomwsulcer (talk) 02:31, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Uploading bot[edit]

Hello Kaldari,

First, I would like to thank you for the picture uploading tool that you created. It is really useful for what we have to do for the Wikipedia takes Montréal contest. But I would like to report some bugs that make it a bit frustrating. First, the bot always stops after 30 pictures uploaded. So for some teams I have to stay in front of the computer to restart the bot manually (refresh the page then hit publish again). It would help a lot if I could just start it and come back when it's done.

Also, I think there should be a "Save" and "back to top menu" buttons in the pages made to review teams works. It's really a pain in the xxx when I have to go back to add a target that was forgoten or whatever I need to do.

I hope you can do something fast for the first point because it makes the process very long. If not, don't worry about it, I know we all have many things to do. Thanks again for your help and I hope we can work again together.

Move files[edit]

Hi! I wonder if you could be so kind and rename (move) two files that I have produced. In an errenous attempt to convert tif-file into jpg-files, I happened to name two files "....JPG.tif". This will probably not work well in the long run, so please either delete the *.JPG" mid-part of it, or delete the files alltogether. I have copies, and I have also managed to export them into jpg-files.

The two files in question are:

  • File:Adventdalen panorama 03.JPG.tif
  • File:Adventdalen panorama 04.JPG.tif ‎

The files are already uploaded as jpg, so a total deletion would not harm. Please see:

  • File:Adventdalen panorama 03.jpg
  • File:Adventdalen panorama 04.jpg

Question: Is .tif a feasible format at Commons? The files seem terribly heavy...?

reply[edit]

I this comment on Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb_(de-adminship_2) you offered an excision which you thought supported Jcb's claim he only excised troll comments.

Did you look at his excision of this comment?

He had made a totally unaccountable deletion decision. His one nominal attempt to explain the deletion was insulting in its flagrant inapplicability. He never tried to offer a meaningful explanation.

Given how seriously he failed to fulfill his obligations to exercise the extra powers entrusted to him I think I was entitled to leave my comment.

His response is also very insulting. His bad decision wasted about 20 hours of my time, so his complaint that answering me was a waste of his time generates absolutely no sympathy with me.

As I wrote in the discussion this deletion gives the appearance of being made in response to inappropriate anger on his part over my having posed civil good faith questions to him that he was unable or unwilling to answer over his early refusal to explain earlier bad closures. I don't really care if the deletion was made in good faith, as if he had been complying with his obligations he never would have given the appearance of operating in malicious bad faith. If the deletion was made in good faith, his bad judgment in failing to explain himself, and his bad judgment in recklessly presenting the appearance of bad faith are sufficient to cause him to be stripped of administratorship, IMO.

Can you take a look?[edit]

Hi, I noticed you're a Wikicommons admin somewhat active at Categories for discussion.

Can you take a look at this user [7] recent actions? The back story is that he just got blocked on en-wiki for edit warring, some of which concerned some images. He then came over here and created several inappropriate categories under dubious auspices [8] [9], nominated widely used images for deletion for no reason [10], removed appropriate categories from several images (for example [11]) and then proceeded to tag a whole bunch of images (too many to list) with just plain strange statements (for example [12], [13], [14], quite a number of others).

When I nomintated two of the categories he created for discussion he removed the relevant notifications from the category page [15], [16], [17], and even tried to remove the discussion page itself [18]

And of course he followed that up with obnoxious insults and personal attacks which he left on my talk page [19] and in edit summaries [20] [21] (and this is leaving out being called a "vandal" etc).

I don't orient myself that well in how things function on commons - either with regard to the details of the deletion processes or reporting abusive and obviously disruptive users. If you can help, thanks in advance.Volunteer Marek (talk) 13:47, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Files you uploaded may be deleted[edit]

The files listed below, which you uploaded, have been tagged {{OTRS pending}} for more than 30 days. This tag indicates that an email setting out permission to use the file was sent to the OTRS team. Unfortunately, we cannot find any record that such an email has been received, and accordingly the file remains without permission. Unless the OTRS team receives evidence that permission has been granted within 15 days of today's date, the file will be deleted. If you have not sent the permission, please send it to "permissions-commons@wikimedia.org" now. Please quote the file name in your email. If you have, please leave a message at the OTRS noticeboard, quoting the file name, so that a volunteer can follow this up. Alternatively, you can contact an OTRS volunteer directly. Please note that this message is being left by an automated bot, whose operator is not an OTRS volunteer, therefore please do not send this information to me, as it will not save your images from deletion.

Artist fields for the Walters[edit]

Kaldari, do you know what happens when there are multiple artist or when there are qualifiers like "style of" or "(?)" ? Descriptions like this or that are seriously flawed. --Zolo (talk) 07:27, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah the multiple artists problem is a known issue. I'm going to fix those as soon as the initial upload is finished. The "(?)" qualifiers just mean that some piece of data is uncertain. Kaldari (talk) 07:38, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok thanks. I know what the "?" mean, I meant they had not made their way to Commons (admittedly my sentence was weirdly built). --Zolo (talk) 07:45, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
The problem with "style of" and "(?)" is that we're using their artist IDs rather than their artist text (so that we can easily match to creator templates), but sometimes their artist text gives extra information that we also want. I'll look more into fixing these after the upload is finished. Kaldari (talk) 07:49, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello, Kaldari. Since you're an administrator here, I'd like to request your aid. There is an editor called Pedro Aguiar who has been repeatly uploading wrong version of two maps I created for a Featured Article I wrote at the English Wikipedia: en:Empire of Brazil. The articles are:

It will be quite easy to you to see what is the main difference between the map I created and the newer versions he added (take a look at Brazil' limits to the northwest). Here is a map of Brazil in the 1850s taken from Brazil: the Forging of a Nation so that you may see which one is the correct version. You can also see a hand drawn map on this English written Emperor Pedro I's biography. Or if you prefer, you may see a 19th century map of Brazil on this other book. Either way, you'll notice that the entire are removed by that editor is present on all three maps.

Your opinion on max allowed bot edit rates[edit]

Hi Kaldari,

I saw in the Saibo thread on VP, that you stated you are a WMF developer. Given that, maybe you could provide some qualified feedback to Commons talk:Bots#General questions not related to a specific bot?

Best wishes, --Slaunger (talk) 19:36, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Walters Art Museum[edit]

Would you be able to look at the question I asked at Commons talk:Walters Art Museum? Thanks. Carcharoth (Commons) (talk) 08:15, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Caption of picture[edit]

hello Kaldari. Thank you for your beautiful images.
For the accuracy of the legend of the picture, could you tell me what is the museum (name of city, region, country ...) quoted in the caption of this image / wiki / File: Zygoballus_concolor_allotype_dorsal_with_scale.jpg File: Zygoballus_concolor_allotype_dorsal_with_scale.
Thank you again. --F. Lamiot (talk) 07:15, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Done. Kaldari (talk) 07:31, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

File:MountSharp-MarsCuriosity.jpg[edit]

Hi Kaldari. While I do admire your tireless work here, I must comment that the deletion of the file above was a bad move (although I don't directly have a problem with that). For two reasons: 1, the files are currently being discussed; you could've at least waited till that was over or at least join the conversation. 2, when it comes to duplicates, we normally delete the newer file; the older file in this case is file deleted. Respectfully, Rehman 12:25, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

What do you think of it?[edit]

Hi, Kaldari. Good to talk to you again. I have recently opened my ninth nomination for FAC. The article is en:Pedro I of Brazil. The pictures used in the article were almost all made during the subject's lifetime, which means that the authors died around 150 years ago. The exception are this painting, made by a painter who died in 1916 and two modern day photographs.

Now here's the problem: and editor has told me that the tags used in all pictures are wrong, and that I need to add the US PD tag, which is solely used for works published in the U.S. before 1923. I believe it's an unreasonable request, since as far as I can remember both "PD-Art" and "PD-100" tags are just fine. The other editor disagrees and said that they are not acceptable in the United States.

It doesn't make sense at all! Why do both exist, then? Anyway, here is the link (scroll down to "Image review"). Could you take a look and share your thoughts? I would be really grateful if you did. Regards, --Lecen (talk) 12:46, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

File:WikiAd for WikiProject Open Access.png[edit]

Hi Kaldari,

while playing around with {{OAMI}}, I was wondering whether you could provide a version of File:WikiAd for WikiProject Open Access.png that does not have the "Join" in it. Thanks, -- Daniel Mietchen - WiR/OS (talk) 02:39, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Response to: Is it possible to get Image URI, imageinfo (like size for thumbs) of one category in one query[edit]

There is a possibility. Prove (using a "generator", only listing files). It would be kind if you could forward this. Because I don't like mailing lists for various reasons (prefer a system like stackoverflow uses for questions), I won't do it myself. Sorry. -- Rillke(q?) 14:16, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Should I explain this in detail, I am wrong or is there another reason why you prefer neither forwarding the message nor responding? Or is Ryan Kaldari at the mailing list not you? -- Rillke(q?) 13:23, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, this looks like a good solution. I'll forward it. Kaldari (talk) 17:25, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Filenames with ampersands break the WLM Reviewer tool[edit]

When the WLM Reviewer gets to a picture whose filename contains an ampersand (I've encountered this with File:Silverspringb&o052.JPG), the places where the picture and full resolution should be displayed are left essentially blank. I don't know whether or not this is fixable; just wanted to let you know. Thanks for the tool! Ntsimp (talk) 14:15, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! This should be fixed now. Kaldari (talk) 17:23, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

A brownie for you![edit]

Brownie transparent.png Thanks for moving my WLM photos from test.wp over here and in way that they actually show up as my contributions. I expected them to be bot contributions and this is a positive surprise to see them as mine. Yay!:) Mutante (talk) 16:12, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Deleted category[edit]

Hello!
I did not understand why you deleted the Category:Faria Bagh? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 06:07, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

And how would a photograph taken in 1880s fall under WLM 2012? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 06:11, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Licences[edit]

I see you are aware of the discussion on Commons FPs concerning licences. I've been trawling through archived dicussions. Your names shows up as someone who also wants rid of this GFDL 1.2 licence option. My reason for raising it at FP rather than Commons Policy was a concern there may be some weak case for allowing GFDL 1.2 images in exceptional circumstances or in combination with some other wiki project. It seems to me that some FP photographers are only using it as a back door NC licence, which I don't regard as anything to celebrate on a "free media" repository for "anyone".

I'm trying to understand the differences between GFDL and CC-BY-SA that might mean somone would legitimately use it (other than to approximate NC). There are hints on various pages that the SA portion of CC differs from GFDL and that the latter is more "copyleft". My understanding of CC-BY-SA is that someone can use my image in a book and that doesn't cause the book to become CC-BY-SA. Whereas if someone uses my image as a poster with a title overlaid, then that is a derivative work that must also be CC-BY-SA. Perhaps it is different with GFDL?

I would appreciate any help/guidance you can give, or a pointer to someone you know may be able to help. Cheers, Colin (talk) 10:38, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Query file delete[edit]

Your edit summary here gives no substantive reason for removing a file that has only just been uploaded and released under a free license. It was already in the Signpost's draft "News and notes". Exactly why was it removed??? Tony1 (talk) 06:11, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Your bot reviews[edit]

Hello!
I recently noticed that your bot User:File Upload Bot (Kaldari) is reviewing files. My understanding of Category:WLM 2012 India reviewed is the contents of this are eligible for award consideration. How is this bot doing this review? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 07:17, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

I second that. If there is no special reason to use bot account instead of yours, please use your account to do the WLM image reviews. --Sreejith K (talk) 10:05, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
I have blocked your bot account. Once you give a clarification here, I will unblock your account. --Sreejith K (talk) 09:09, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
None of those reviews are by me. Naveen Francis asked me to build a reviewing tool for WLM India (which also CCed Yuvi Panda and Karthik Nadar). The tool is here: http://toolserver.org/~kaldari/reviewer/india/. It works just like any other toolserver tool - the reviews are performed by whoever uses the tool, while the actual edits are made by the bot account (since toolserver tools are not supposed to collect login credentials). If WLM India doesn't want to use this tool, just let me know and I'll turn it off. Kaldari (talk) 17:24, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
So its actually you personally seeing each image and reviewing it? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 17:32, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
No, none of the reviews are by me. I have no involvement in WLM India other than building this tool. Kaldari (talk) 17:35, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
@Dharmadhyaksha: You might be confusing Category:WLM 2012 India reviewed with Category:WLM 2012 India nominated. The later category is the one that includes images eligible for awards. Kaldari (talk) 17:34, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
In such case i do not exactly understand how this tool is any different from manually checking images.
Also you are right about my confusion. There are three categories of Category:WLM 2012 India nominated‎, Category:WLM 2012 India reviewed and Category:WLM 2012 India unreviewed‎ with hardly any good role descriptions. Nominated one are the image which jury has selected for the awards' consideration. Now what exactly is the difference between reviewed and unreviewed is not clear to me. I had, some time ago, asked somewhere if i could be of any help in moving files from unreviewed to reviewed. I don't think i got any answer to that. Hence i assumed jury is doing that too. But then i saw this bot changing categories and was puzzled. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 18:22, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure exactly how India is planning on doing it. In the US, they had volunteers doing the reviewing and then the jury would just evaluate the images in the nominated category. When an image is reviewed with the reviewing tool it moves the image from unreviewed to reviewed and then optionally to nominated if the image is supposed to be nominated. It's supposed to work the same as manually reviewing them, but be easier and more efficient. I assume it would be OK to still manually review them, but you might want to check with organizers to see what they prefer. Kaldari (talk) 19:20, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
I see! Thanks for the info. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 03:43, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Sorry for the confusion. Earlier we planned to use Ryan's tool. Since Jury was 6 members we have to move to WLM jury tool. We will delete the three categories to avoid confusion . --Naveenpf (talk) 05:05, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
So what I understand is that moving images from unreviewed to reviewed/nominated category is not doing any good. The jury is using another tool anyways. I would recommend Kaldari to take down his toolserver page so as not to confuse people. Also, the next time you are configuring a toolserver page to use this account, please state that in the bot user page. --Sreejith K (talk) 05:20, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
The tool I built isn't really for juries to use, it's for volunteers to nominate images for the jury to consider. I feel sorry for your jury if they have to review 16,000 images! But I'm happy to accommodate whatever you want to do. I'll go ahead and take down the page for now. Just let me know if you want me to put it back up or create something different. Kaldari (talk) 05:40, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Unblocked. Thanks for the clarifications. --Sreejith K (talk) 06:21, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Heptathela kimurai yanbaruensis[edit]

Hello, you recategorise File:Heptathela.kimurai.yanbaruensis.female.-.tanikawa.jpg from Category:Heptathela yanbaruensis to Category:Heptathela kimurai (here). But why ? It's not a Heptathela kimurai yanbaruensis spider ? Because in "The World Spider Catalog, Version 13.0" : http://research.amnh.org/iz/spiders/catalog/LIPHISTIIDAE.html, if the description is correct, it's Heptathela yanbaruensis. Cordialement - Goudron92 (talk) 22:57, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

You're right. It looks like Heptathela kimurai yanbaruensis was promoted to a separate species in 2009. I've fixed the categorization. Kaldari (talk) 23:33, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Mother carries her child.JPG[edit]

Hello!

I have noticed that you have deleted the file in question. Can you please expand your deletion rationale in order to show how are dealing with the fact that this image comes from a stream of a professional photographer who possibly has that required permission. Thank you in advance. --High Contrast (talk) 09:46, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

The closing rationale says "No evidence of consent." Since the photograph was taken in Spain and the subject is identifiable, we need to have some evidence, any evidence, of consent. This can be as simple as the photographer stating that he had the subject's consent. If you could get the photographer to add such a statement to the picasa page or email it to OTRS, I would be happy to undelete it. If you believe this decision was incorrect, I'm also happy to discuss it further, as I'm certainly not infallible :) If it were a portrait photograph, I think we could reasonably assume consent, but in this case it does not seem certain that consent was given. Unfortunately, due to the laws of Spain, we must err on the side of the subject's right to privacy, per Commons:PEOPLE. Kaldari (talk) 10:55, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
First of all I am perfectly aware of the law situation in Spain. Your rational seemed to be incomplete, as such I was asking you. "No evidence of consent" - I see. I did not know that this sentenced was intended to express what you were writing just above. Would be nice to have such a long rationale in order to give other users to understand what brought you to this decision. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 11:08, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
Good point. I'll elaborate on the deletion discussion page. Kaldari (talk) 11:11, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Commons:Photographs of identifiable people[edit]

Hi Kaldari,

I think there is sufficient agreement to move the draft User:Colin/People to replace the existing guideline page (obviously with a few tweaks to add categories, etc). The complication is that a few people have editing the draft and so I think, per copyright licence, we need to ensure they are credited in the history. I can't find info on that on Commons, but what I found on Wikipedia confused me. I think it might be permissible to move the content over and simply refer to the old draft in the edit summary with a link. Then the draft can be blanked. However, perhaps a more complex admin move is needed where history is kept. Do you know? -- Colin (talk) 11:25, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

I usually just do it the old fashioned way—copy and paste the new material into the old article and list the contributing users in the edit summary. Kaldari (talk) 07:59, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Well in my desire to do things properly, it seems we've ended up with a mess -- a history that is less than a month old. See discussion on the guideline talk page. I think we should have done it as you said (and/or with a link to the draft, which I then turn into a redirect) but I guess it will need an admin to move the old guideline back and then paste in the new material. Could you do this? Colin (talk) 08:34, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

WLM question[edit]

Hi, are you responsible for wikilovesmonuments.us? Mono 23:55, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

No, but I'm an admin on it. Matthew Roth or Aude might be 'responsible' for it, but honestly I'm not sure exactly who is root on it. Kaldari (talk) 00:53, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Helping me move a category[edit]

Hi Kaldari. No rush on this, but, I was hoping you could help me - I want to move this category Category:Images from World Digital Library to Category:Images from the World Digital Library. It hasn't been protested by anyone, so I think it's okay to move. Please let me know what you think (and if you can help). Thanks :) Sarah (talk) 00:42, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Deletion of Image[edit]

Yes for Shared Parenting - med.jpg[edit]

Kaldari Comment

File:Yes for Shared Parenting - med.jpg Appears to be a derivative copyright violation: http://www.imagechef.com/fr/t/arbc/La-permission-de-parking Kaldari (talk) 18:21, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

My reply:

Yes it is a derivative i.e it is a template with my additions.

http://www.imagechef.com/ic/search.jsp?mode=3&tag=yes

However it is certainly not a copyright violation.

The template was purchased by me from Imagechef.com. This was for business use. Therefore the image can be used as I have used it. This is also in accordance with the Imagechef "Terms of Use".

As evidence of this, there is no watermark (deleted by Imagechef) and the file is much larger then the sample provided (as indicated by Imagechef when you purchase the template).

Hi Kaldari[edit]

I've started off some requests for the more obvious batmobile images, listing them at discussions here:

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:The Tumbler

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Batmobile (1995 Batman Forever)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Batmobile (1966)

If you want to just wait a week or two and do nothing, the category contents should be reduced to a manageable size for you to continue and finish off with the harder ones and so on, leaving just what is allowed. Penyulap 20:48, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

just go ahead and edit the list I made directly, I don't mind you editing my remarks in the DR, where it says <s> and </s> and FOP or whatever, just delete it as you please and add [[:Image:battypic.jpg]] to the list, not the : before Image in [[:Image:battpic....
