Hi Magog,

I noticed that you have marked the file 'Pressefoto-Bernd-Sahner.jpg' with a having unclear license statement and that it will be deleted by next Sunday. However, today it has been deleted already. Maybe I didn't clearly state the copyright status in the license tag? Could you please help me to do so:

The copyright of the image is at the Universitätsklinik in Freiburg (engl. : University Medical Center Freiburg), which is offering the download and usage for reports about Bernd Sahner (see website:

"Pressefoto" means image for journalism. The usage of the file is explicitly permitted.

How to state this correctly?

If you please could help me as fast as possible - I feel ashamed for not having understood the licensing...

@Schmidan: it's quite OK. We don't expect our new users to get everything right the first time, especially with something as complex as copyrights.
In this case, it doesn't look like the ‎university explicitly provided a license for that image, so it probably isn't yet suitable for Commons. However, many organizations are OK with licensing their press photos as free; we just have to ask them politely. I see a contact email: Could you please follow the instructions at Commons:E-Mail-Vorlagen? Let me know if you get a positive response. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 19:49, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for this fix and many related ones. I did so a stupid mistake! :-( --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 19:45, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

@Alex brollo: maybe before you do a mass upload, you could preview the upload. You probably already know that by now but I thought I'd give advice in case you don't. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:03, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Mea culpa[edit]

Magog, it looks like I messed up when I transferred File:Arthur Sullivan memorial at Wellington Barracks.JPG here - I didn't move over the original upload, only the derivative version. Kelly (talk) 08:23, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

That's twice with no sleepers. And this one didn't even edit. Maybe he's getting bored with the whole sockmaster deal... INeverCry 03:28, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
