Image:DDR-Briefmarke-8.jpg[edit]

Sorry, but for applying {{PD-old}} tag this stamps should be printed not later then in 1936, when DDR even not existed. --EugeneZelenko 16:36, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Hallo Magellan, benutze auch für die DDR Briefmarken die Vorlagen wie ich sie für "normale" Westdeutsche Briefmarken genommen habe, da die Bildrechte an die BRD übergegangen sind.
Also am besten immer folgendes reinkopieren:
Copyright-Begründung auf: [[:de:Wikipedia:Bildrechte#Amtliche_Werke]]
{{Template:PD-Germany}}
{{Template:PD-GermanGov}}
[[Category:German stamps]]
--Viele Grüße - kandschwar
Hallo, ok, thx. Gruß --Magellan 08:54, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Kategorien[edit]

Hallo Magellan, da es ja die Category:German Democratic Republic stamps gibt, kannst Du bei den DDR-Briefmarken, die Ober-Category:German stamps weg lassen. ... Ich weiß, oben habe ich noch was anderes geschrieben, aber was interessiert mich mein Geschwätz von gestern ;-) --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 16:23, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi kandschwar, ja, ist bei mir ähnlich. Rede manchmal auch viel, wenn der Tag lang ist ;o) Werde nachbessern und soweit erkennbar die Stempelungen mit angeben. Gruß Magellan, 10:49, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
Hi Magellan, bezugnehmend auf User_talk:H.A.,_Dresden, kannst Du bei der Einstellung der Briefmarken ja schon mal unten stehende "Vorlagenmuster" nehmen:
==Beschreibung==
eingescannt von: [[User:Hier Dein Name eintragen]]
eingescannt am: tt.mm.jjjjj
===Briefmarkenbeschreibung===
Oberkategorie der Briefmarke sollte es sich um eine Serie handeln
*Text der auf der Briefmarke steht
*Ausgabepreis: xxx Pfennig
*Erstausgabetag / First Day of Issue: TT. MMMM JJJJ
*Auflage: xxx Stück
*Entwurf: xxx
*Druckverfahren: 
Michel-Katalog-Nr: Ländercode-MiNr: xxx
== Licensing ==
*Copyright-Begründung auf: [[:de:Wikipedia:Bildrechte#Amtliche_Werke]]
{{Template:PD-Germany}}
{{Template:PD-GermanGov}}
[[Category:Stamps]]
[[Category:German stamps]]
[[Category:German Democratic Republic stamps]]

Dann brauch ich nur noch die Daten eintragen ;-) --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 11:26, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Hab noch was vergessen. Da es eine Art Mustervorlage ist, bitte immer dann die unpassenden Kategorien rausnehmen oder ergänzen. --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 11:30, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
Hi, ich bins schon wieder, habe jetzt mal auf der Diskussionsseite von den deutschen Briefmarken auch die Vorlage eingefügt, von daher bitte dort rauskopieren bzw. auch ergänzen, wenn dir noch was einfällt. Talk:Stamp/Germany#Mustervorlage Bis dann und --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 17:46, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

hi kandschwar, stimmt, da hast Du Recht, werde die bisherige und zukünftige Angaben wie in der Muster angegeben verwenden. Es kommen jetzt noch 3-4 DDR Briefmarken und dann einpaar Westdeutsche. Falls ich noch Bock habe, dann auch aus andere Länder der Welt. ;o) Gruß Magellan 13:46, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Jo mach das. Allerdings habe ich nur für deutsche Briefmarken Michel-Kataloge. Also alles andere kann ich dann leider nicht ergänzen, aber dennoch kann man ja die Vorlage schon mal mit einbauen. Dann wird es ein wenig einfacher. Noch eine Bitte, solltest Du auch mal Briefmarken auf kompletten Briefen, Postkarten oder ähnliches haben dann auch bitte komplett oder zumindest mit Stempel mal einscannen. Siehe auch bei meinen eingescannten Briefmarken. --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 20:15, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Vorlage für Briefmarken[edit]

Hallo Magellan, mir hat es einfach keine Ruhe gelassen. Ich habe jetzt mal Vorlagen für deutsche Briefmarken entworfen. Eine genaue Erklärung findest Du unter Template talk:PD-German stamps. Diese können wir dann nun für die deutschen Briefmarken bzgl. der Copyrights verweden. Schau Dir die Vorlagen bitte mal alle an, ob ich dort eventuell einen Fehler gemacht habe. --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 19:34, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Allgemeine Hinweise zur Vorlage[edit]

Habe mal eine Vorlage für deutsche Briefmarken entworfen. Die rechtliche Grundlage hierfür ist auf verschiedenen Seiten in der deutschen Wikipedia zu finden, u.a. hier:

All dies habe ich nun in dieser Vorlage versucht zusammen zufassen. --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 18:47, 27 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi kandschwar, auf den ersten Blick fiel mir das hier auf. Es ist ein wenig unverständlich, Du meinst als Zusammenfassung diesen Template Template:PD-GermanGov?

Die anderen Vorlagen z. B. für den früheren DDR-Briefmarken scheint in Ordnung zu sein, aber die Inhalte von diesen bitte auch mit Profis nochmals durch sehen, sicher ist sicher.

Demnächst lege ich noch 4 DDR Marken auf und nehme die neuen Vorlagen + tausche sie dann bei den anderen Bilder ebenfalls aus. Inklusive Michelgerechtigung. ;o) Gruß --Magellan 11:21, 30 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi Magellan, mit dem Hinweis auf PD-GermanGov, habe ich den dort enthaltenden § 5 (1) UrhG gemeint. Sozusagen doppelt gemoppelt angegeben. ;-) Ich hoffe es ist jetzt verständlich dadurch. Ansonsten können wir dann solche Änderungen jetzt in der Vorlage vornehmen und schwuppdiewupp ist es in allen betreffenden Briefmarken erledigt :-)

Deinem zweiten Wunsch kann ich nur zustimmen, auch ich würde mich freuen, wenn noch mal irgendjemand über die Vorlage drüber sehen würde und eventuell es auch mal in ein gutes englisch übersetzen würde.

Was die DDR-Briefmarken angeht. Wunderbar.

--Viele Grüße - kandschwar 16:18, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Verwendung der Vorlage[edit]

Hallo Magellan, wenn Du die Vorlage in die Artikel einbauen willst, musst du nicht den Quelltext einbauen, sondern einfach nur {{PD-GDR stamps}} (für z.B. DDR-Briefmarken) schreiben. Der Rest wird dann direkt von der Vorlage gemacht. --Viele Grüße - kandschwar 18:40, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Ach stimmt ja, ok, ist auch kein Aprilscherz. Ich müsste mich halt mehr hierhin konzentrieren ;o) lol* Gruß --Magellan 10:45, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

For cooking, oder?[edit]

Hi Magellan. I like your Image:Kesselgulasch.jpg. I'm working on categories, and I wonder if this object is for boiling water only (eg for washing) or also for cooking? Sorry to write in English - I can read German, if you prefer to reply auf Deutsch... JackyR 01:04, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Hallo, Antwort liegt bei Dir vor. Gruß Magellan 18:26, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
Vielen dank! Alles klar (höffentlich)! Ich habe seine Wörte auf dem Seite geschrieben, weil finde ich die benützliche da zu Lesen. Sie sehen, daß meine Deutsch so häßlich is. So ich hoffe daß mein Übersetzung nich falsch ist... Aber Sie haben das wichtigste Frage ganz klar geantwörtet - cooking, not heating water for washing! So the file is now in Category:Stoves. And now you can stop laughing at my German... :-P JackyR 23:41, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
PS enschuldigen daß ich habe nur den englisch gelinked: veilleicht ist es sicherer wann Sie den Deutsch selbst linken... Gruß, JackyR 23:49, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
No problem, if I speak in English, than it is the same how by your german. But we can understand us and that is good. Ihre Übersetzung auf deutsch ist in Ordnung, ich habs verstanden. Bezüglich Verlinkung in deutsch wird bald was unternommen. Viele Grüße --Magellan 08:58, 2. May 2006 (CEST)

Missing license/wrong author information for several animated images[edit]

Hallo Magellan, kannst Du bitte alle Bildbeschreibungen in Deiner Galerie nacharbeiten? Es fehlen bei den von mir durchgesehenen - vermutlich bei allen - die konkreten Angaben zu den verwendeten Bildquellen, den Autoren und den jeweiligen Lizenzen. Ob überhaupt Bilder unterschiedlicher Lizenzen, z.B. einerseits GFDL und andererseits CC-by-sa-2.0 (also nicht mehrfach lizenzierten Bildern) in einer Datei zusammengepackt werden können, wird üblicherweise bestritten; auch ich bin der Ansicht, dass das in fast allen Fällen nicht geht (vgl. Wikipedia:Bildrechte).

So oder so, notwendig ist, dass Du in der Reihenfolge der gezeigten Bilder jeweils wenigstens folgendes angibst:

Verwendete Bilder:
1) [[Bild:xy.jpg]] - (Kurzbeschreibung zur schnellen Identifizierung) - Urheber: [[User:XY|XY]] - Lizenz: GFDL
2) [[Bild:xy.jpg]] - (z.B. Gänseblümchen) - Urheber: [[User:YZ|YZ]] - Lizenz: GFDL/CC-by-sa-2.0
usw. 

Wichtig übrigens: Du wirst nicht zum Autor, nur weil Du Bilder anderer Leute zusammenbastelst. Bitte korrigiere die entsprechenden Angaben.

Danke --Überraschungsbilder 23:03, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Hallo Überraschungsbilder, hast recht, in meine Bilderdarstellungen muss mehr Übersicht her. Werde es nachholen. Die Situation mit z. B. animierte Bilder die gemischt sind mit GFDL und cc-by ist mir allerdings nun etwas iritierend, weil bei wiki.de hieß von eine Userin (EvaK), dass es mit der Lizenzierung (siehe hier: Image:Blumen1.gif) die ich einsetzte in Ordnung ist.
Was ich zukünftig tun kann ist, einerseits von vorne herein die Bilder getrennt animieren, also nur GFDL oder nur cc-by ... Bilder erstellen und andererseits klar definierte Angaben über den Herkunft etc. zu den Photos machen. Viele Grüße --Magellan @_/" 11:01, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
Danke für die schnelle Reaktion. Ich habe kurz geguckt, was Du gemacht hast und das sieht schon viel besser aus :-) Die Detailkontrolle überlasse ich Dir, Du weißt jetzt wohl, wo es drauf ankommt.
Sofern alle verwendeten Bilder z.B. GFDL und/oder GFDL+andere Lizenz aufweisen (PD sowieso), sollte eine Kombination möglich sein, nur nicht bei ungleichen Lizenzen, bei denen keine optionale Lizenz übereinstimmt.
Grüße --Überraschungsbilder 23:17, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
Gut, gut, bin beruhigt, dass es nun besser ist. Die restlichen (auch animierte) Bilder werde ich etwas später bearbeiten, hoffe, dass es noch dieses Jahr klappt. Wie meinst Du folgendes: nur nicht bei ungleichen Lizenzen, bei denen keine optionale Lizenz übereinstimmt.? Gruß --Magellan 14:08, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi, unfortunately the {{PD-BrazilGov}} don't apply to brazilian money and (also unfortunately) apparently Brazil don't have nothing releasing money representations into PD like USA and EU have. No one from Portuguese Wikipedia up today has found a solution for this copyright gap and I think that all imagens on Commons:Deletion requests/Brazil money (2007-03-03) may get deleted :( Lugusto 20:29, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Baha'u'llah image (religion1.gif)[edit]

Hello, I'm requesting that you remove [Image:Bahaullah from miller.jpg] from [Image:Religion1.gif]. I can see by the usage that there is certainly no malicious intent but this is a very controversial image and, all other things being equal, it would be a great mark of respect to remove it. You can refer to Aniconism in the Bahá'í Faith and Talk:Bahá'u'lláh/Photo for more information on this subject. I'm sorry I don't speak German but this paragraph looks similar to the one on the en.wiki:

Um einer unangebrachten Bilderverehrung vorzubeugen und aus Respekt vor der Person des Religionsstifters, werden seitens der Bahai keine Darstellungen Baha’u’llahs vervielfältigt oder verbreitet. Jeder Bahai kann während einer neuntägigen Pilgerreise für eine kurze Zeit einen Blick auf ein Bild Baha’u’llahs werfen. Für die Vorstellung, wie Baha’u’llah auf die Menschen gewirkt hat, ist die Beschreibung, die ein westlicher Besucher von ihm gab, hilfreich:
In der Ecke, wo der Diwan an die Wand stieß, saß eine hoheitsvolle, ehrwürdige Gestalt mit jener Kopfbedeckung, wie sie bei den Derwischen Táj genannt wird (aber von ungewöhnlicher Höhe und Form), und um deren unteren Teil ein kleiner weißer Turban gewunden war. Das Antlitz, in das ich nun blickte, kann ich nie vergessen, obgleich ich nicht imstande bin, es zu beschreiben. Diese durchdringenden Augen schienen auf dem Grunde der Seele zu lesen. Macht und Würde lagen über diesen breiten Augenbrauen; die tiefen Falten auf Seiner Stirne und Seinem Gesicht verrieten ein Alter, das Sein tiefschwarzes Haar und der in üppiger Fülle bis zur Leibesmitte herabwallende Bart Lügen zu strafen schienen. Unnötig zu fragen, in wessen Gegenwart ich stand, als ich mich vor Dem verneigte, Der das Ziel einer Verehrung und Liebe ist, um die Ihn Könige beneiden könnten und nach der sich Kaiser vergeblich sehnen.
– Edward Granville Browne[33]
In der Darstellung der Bahai-Religion durch Außenstehende wird häufig ein Bild von Baha’u’llah genutzt, welches der christliche Missionar William McElwee Miller in seinem Buch „The Baha’i Faith: Its history and teachings“ veröffentlicht hat (siehe rechts).

Uncontroversial images associated with Baha'is can be found here. Thank you for your consideration. -LambaJan 20:04, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:

  • use in any work, regardless of content

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on Wikimedia Commons; "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Please note that derivative works of copyrighted material are also considered copyrighted.

Hello, Magellan!

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!
