Mr. Austin[edit]

Re:Commons:Help_desk#How_to_add_pubic_image_to_my_page: I agree with your prognosis. Especially the place where he lapsed into first person in writing about himself. Perhaps I should just have let Ruslik's original answer stand, but it seemed a bit too snarky for the help page. - Jmabel ! talk 01:20, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, I think we agree that if one has nothing helpful to say, it's better to say nothing at all. I might have been tempted to throw in a tongue-in-cheek reference to Commons:Nudity#New uploads in reference to the obvious typo, but not without any help on the real issue. Of course, sometimes (quite often, it seems) the helpful thing to say is "you can't/shouldn't do what you want to do." Cheers, LX (talk, contribs) 09:55, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Homenaje a Chapecoense en Girardot (31345909675).jpg[edit]

and File:Homenaje a Chepecoense en Girardot (31309711716).jpg.

Hi, Since these files were reviewed, and a previous DR was kept, I think that a proper DR is better. In particular, the reviewer(s) and the closing admin(s) should be informed. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:45, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, if I'd noticed the previous deletion discussion, I would have taken that route. Cheers, LX (talk, contribs) 10:48, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Use Google Transltate[edit]

Te voy a hablar en español. Evita mensajes como este que consideran mis contribuciones de mala fe. Solo fueron dos imágenes que un usuario de Wikipedia en Español me solicitó subir, creyendo que estaban con licencia Creative Commons. Te reportaré a los administradores por las agresiones en mi contra. Que @Yann: también sepa. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 13:50, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Fue un error de la Agencia ANDES, no mío, pues en Flickr aún figura con licencia CC. Soy usuario hace 4 años y entiendo bien de las normas. Ese mensaje me hirió mucho, pues no soy novato. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 13:59, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

I agree that Agencia de Noticias ANDES made the more serious mistake, as they really should know better. You made a smaller mistake in trusting them (and perhaps overlooking the description). I think that's quite understandable, which is why I took the time to write a personal note to explain what was going on instead of just the template notices. I don't know why you feel like I've been aggressive, and I'm sorry you feel that way. That certainly wasn't my intention. LX (talk, contribs) 14:25, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Indian Navy Image help[edit]

Hey, I noticed the discussion we had on the last Indian Navy image deletion and wanted to ensure that I did this one right. I uploaded a new image to Wikimedia commons, File:Tropex 2017.jpg and added the Indian navy license to it. How do I go about requesting an immediate license review on this? Thanks for all your help. Adamgerber80 (talk) 20:37, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

You already have requested review. By using {{Indian navy}} (rather than a generic cc-by tag), the file is placed in Category:Unreviewed photos from to be reviewed by a license reviewer or administrator. Since those resources are limited, that may not happen "immediately", but your upload will get the same priority as the rest. One thing you can do is to visit, enter the source URL, and if it's not already archived, click the "Save this url in the Wayback Machine" on the resulting page. That should enable license review even if the source link goes dead. LX (talk, contribs) 20:54, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
Got it. I will archive it right way and keep this in mind for the future. Sorry for any trouble. Adamgerber80 (talk) 02:12, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
No trouble. LX (talk, contribs) 11:06, 10 February 2017 (UTC)


Hej! Filen med detta verk innehåller en hänvisning till denna sida där det står: "Det här verket har identifierats som fritt från kända upphovsrättsliga restriktioner, inklusive alla relaterade närstående rättigheter." Men, det står också bland annat "Detta verk är kanske inte fritt från kända upphovsrättsliga restriktioner i alla jurisdiktioner." Skulle du bedöma att verket är fritt och kan laddas upp på Commons? Edaen (talk) 11:15, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Upphovsrättsinnehavaren dog 1926, vilket innebär att upphovsrätten i Sverige är utgången sedan 1 januari 1997. För att kunna laddas upp på Commons måste även upphovsrätten i USA vara utgången. Reglerna för detta är mer komplicerade. Verket är publicerat efter 1922 och publicerades sannolikt inte i USA i samband med den ursprungliga publiceringen. Under de förutsättningarna är den avgörande frågan om verket var upphovsskyddat i Sverige den 1 januari 1996. Eftersom så är fallet är verket upphovsskyddat i USA 95 år från publicering. Det innebär att det bör vara möjligt att ladda upp det här den 1 januari 2022. Det är i alla fall min lekmannatolkning. LX (talk, contribs) 15:33, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Tack! Som du säger är det komplicerat. Eftersom det ändå är släppt under en fri licens fick jag förhoppningar. Edaen (talk) 20:05, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Jepp. Det här verket hamnade dessutom precis på "fel" sida om gränsen. Hade författaren dött bara ett år tidigare hade situationen varit helt annorlunda. LX (talk, contribs) 20:10, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

No, that is not enough, for several reasons. Firstly, only the legitimate copyright holder can issue a valid copyright license, and there is no evidence that the file in question was uploaded to by the legitimate copyright holder. Secondly, content restricted to {{noncommercial}} use is not allowed on Commons. Please read Commons:Project scope/Summary/es to understand what you can and cannot upload here.

US government Flickr streams license[edit]

Hi there,

Saw a couple notices on my talk page regarding a few files I uploaded from a USFWS Flickr stream that, it would seem, they do not own, and which they changed the license from something incompatible with Commons. Disappointing, but oh well. I'd like to suggest, however, that you group these into a single deletion nomination. Was it just a single other Flickr stream it copied from that was incompatible? (I haven't dug very deep yet) — Rhododendrites talk |  18:33, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Rhododendrites! I probably would have started a mass deletion request if I'd come across them at the same time. I'm doing some searching for "by-nc" on file description pages, and these were just kind of scattered throughout. I recall coming across a few similar ones a while back; see Commons:Deletion requests/File:Poem by Spencer (8661671558).jpg and the others linked from there.
Searching for "by-nc" in pages mentioning 50838842@N06 or usfwshq, it looks like there are at least about 40 of these government copyright violations, all from various sources. (There's also one "by-nd", File:Ceratotherium simum simum (29645910396).jpg.) Seeing as a few of them have been uploaded by you, perhaps you could help go through those search results? LX (talk, contribs) 19:25, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
I just tried searching for ' "by-nc" rhododendrites ' and returned 17 hits. Is best practice to assume that if the description includes an incompatible license (one which conflicts with the license attached to the image via Flickr), that it should be deleted? Seems that way to me, but perhaps technically it's only required if it can be verified it was published with that license? (seems similar to the question of what happens if I publish an image on Flickr with a CC-BY, but in the text I write "CC-BY-NC" -- obviously since in this case the image was created by someone else it's different, but the process seems similar). — Rhododendrites talk |  19:37, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
I've nominated a handful of files for deletion where the photo appeared to be the uploader's own work, but where they provided statements in the description contradicting the machine readable license. (Obviously, I wouldn't nominate files that were deliberately multi-licensed.) This applies both to files uploaded directly here or transferred from Flickr. They pretty much always get deleted unless the uploader is willing to waive the noncommercial and nonderivative restrictions. LX (talk, contribs) 19:47, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Re: dragonfly crops; Thank you[edit]

Hi LX, many thanks for your improvements to the licencing section of the two cropped images. I was not sure how I should format the licences, so your example makes the process very clear. I will follow this example in future as it makes the source quite clear for others to understand. I am sorry I made it difficult for you! Summerdrought (talk) 22:05, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Cheers, no worries. Just glad we got it all worked out. LX (talk, contribs) 05:38, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Special:AbuseFilter/180[edit]

The filter currently means: if you're new and you're uploading one of the disallowed file types, warn you, but if you insist the filter will let you pass. None of the conditions mentions WP0, and it is bypass-able. CC @Steinsplitter, Jdx:. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 09:03, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

FoP in Sweden[edit]

Thank you for your concern here: [1]. Just want to assure you that I am not very distressed for my own sake. I just think it is very clear there is no FoP in Sweden, and therefore they cannot stay uploaded to Commons. In order to change that we should politely obey the rule on Commons but be more active lobbying. If we do not acknowledge the ruling, there is no ruling to change and we are fine with the fact that pictures from Commons depicting artwork may be subject to fee when used on Swedish websites. Såg att du är svensk nu, hoppas min engelska är begriplig.--LittleGun (talk) 20:10, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Jag håller med om att läget ser dystert ut. Enda hoppet som jag ser det står till överklagande, men eftersom grundproblemet är HD:s yttrande så förefaller det osannolikt att högre instans skulle komma till något annat beslut. För stunden har jag styrt upp Category:Swedish FOP cases, uppdaterat Commons:Freedom of panorama#Sweden och föreslagit omformulering av {{FoP-Sweden}}. LX (talk, contribs) 20:30, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

FoP byggnader[edit]

Among the pictures you've tagged with the new template, there are some which are either too old to protected such as File:Björktorpsskolan, Nyfors västra skola.JPG or are not sufficiently original like File:Brottsta, Stensättarvägen, Tunnbindarvägen höger.JPG or File:Barnens reptilhus, Parken Zoo.JPG. Edaen (talk) 20:00, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

All the files were already tagged as depictions of copyrighted works using {{FoP-Sweden}}. I didn't add this tag to any files today. In most cases, I believe the tags were added by the uploaders. Two days ago, I reworded the template, as discussed at Commons:Village pump/Copyright#Freedom of panorama in Sweden (or lack thereof). As you suggested there, I also added the possibility to separate between artworks and buildings. All I did today was to set the new parameter to building for the files that appeared to depict buildings out of the first 500 or so in Category:FoP-Sweden. All that does is to remove the text "or work of art" and change the category from Category:FoP-Sweden to Category:FoP-Sweden (buildings).
I'm not sure what it is you're asking me to do. Not touch a single file unless I've verified that all tags are correct, including researching architects not named in the file descriptions and questioning the uploaders' judgement on the threshold of originality of buildings in Sweden (which I don't think is very well established – it's not really been an issue before)? Sorry, not going to happen. Refrain from working on creating the separation you suggested? I guess I'll do that if my work is not appreciated. Of course, the result will be that the files are even more likely to be swept up in mass deletions. LX (talk, contribs) 20:32, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Sorry. I didn't see that you just changed the parameter. Edaen (talk) 20:37, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
