Dear Magog,

After many years, I am contacting you. It looks like we have an issue again. Ruff tuff cream puff placed a tag on the page above. You've been involved with almost all media I was dealing with and I thought all the issues were resolved. I don't know what the problem, after almost eight years, could be. I forgot the details but I recall submitting everything that was needed and again there is an issue. If we would just use our common sense, we would realize that the possibility of a potential issue with a file uploaded almost a decade ago is almost equal to zero; especially knowing there were no problems whatsoever during all these years. Would you please help us resolve this, in my opinion, nonexistent issue or help Ruff understand? Best regards, Mountlovcen8 (talk)

@Mountlovcen8: the person who created the image, do you still have contact with that person? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:16, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Question re: Mary Ann Hathaway Tripp image[edit]

@Magog the Ogre: Hi, Magog. Just wanted to find out more about why the image of Mary Ann Tripp and my User Name were placed on Ogrebot's new users list for May 2018. (The copyright for this image has expired so I'm not quite sure what the issue could be.) Also, I'd also appreciate it if you could remove my User Name from Ogrebot. (I sent a request via the opt out function earlier this week, but received no response.) Thank you in advance for your clarification. Kind Regards. 47thPennVols (talk) 18:27, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

@47thPennVols: The first question is answered in the FAQ linked in large text of the top of the page. The second question is that your images are no longer added to Ogrebot's galleries. I'm not sure what other "response" you were looking for. If you want it removed from old ones, you'll need to update each gallery. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:25, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: Thanks so much for your response, and for updating Ogrebot to remove my User Name. Regarding your explanation as to why one of my photos was added to Ogrebot, I'm not clear on what you mean when you say, "If you want it removed from old ones, you'll need to update each gallery." (I'm honestly not trying to be difficult here. I'm just not undestanding what you're telling me to do. Could you please explain further?) Thanks in advance for your clarification. 47thPennVols (talk) 02:03, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
@47thPennVols: I mean, when you add your name to the opt out, it won't add any more of your images to the galleries. But it doesn't automatically update all the old galleries that still have your image on them. If you want that done, you'll need to do it by hand. I will do it for you if you request it of me. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:48, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: Thanks so much for the clarification. The process makes more sense to me now. Since I'm not sure which of the old galleries have the image(s) on them, I'd very much appreciate it if you could go ahead and do that update. 47thPennVols (talk) 04:30, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

File:S.M. Re Vittorio Amedeo III di Savoia.png[edit]

hi Magog the Ogre, I am writing to ask you whether it would be possible to restore these files concerning some of these portraits of an unknown artist executed between the seventeenth and eighteenth century, the artist since he died for 100 years, the most correct license included in the following files was PD-100 ,,

Please sign in and request unblock on your talk page. Please see w:WP:SO. I would rather not talk about a mass undeletion until you are in good standing with the community. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:35, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
but if the user has been blocked, I am not allowed to ask for the restoration, because my requests would be CANCELED to view,--82.50.35.247 09:42, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
With all due respect, I am trying to advocate on your behalf and give you a way out of that situation, so that you aren't permanently blocked and you don't keep getting your uploads deleted. I tend to be forgiving, but I need you to work with me if I can work with you. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:55, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

2010 Oregon, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and South Dakota gubernatorial maps[edit]

Could you create maps for the 2010 gubernatorial elections held in Oregon, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and South Dakota? I would really appreciate it! Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 02:21, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

@Count Awesome: ✓  Done Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:24, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much Magog! However, I one minor request. Could you change the third party coloring on Colorado from green to purple? I noticed you used this color on a map of the gubernatorial races throughout the country, as it is the color associated with the Constitution Party, whose candidate Tom Tancredo was the winner of several counties in the state. I really appreciate the maps. Count Awesome (talk) 04:34, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@Count Awesome: instead, consider this a good learning exercise on how to edit SVGs by hand and how to work with hexidecimal colors. I think you'll quickly find it worth your time. Face-smile.svg Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:16, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

File:Green Bay Packers radio affiliates.png[edit]

Just curious if you can add a dot to the map for WTMJ's translator W277CV within Milwaukee proper and update with any new stations the network has. Thank you. Nate (chatter) 04:09, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

@Mrschimpf: at first blush, it looks like they haven't updated the page for a few years. Can you vouch for the accuracy of http://www.packers.com/media-center/radio-shows/packers-radio-network/station-listing.html and or that page on wiki? In general, I prefer to use the official source, since users tend to bungle this type of page on Wikipedia. But I'm open to using Wikipedia if it's more up to date. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:53, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
I used a javascript shortcut to access the 'last modified' date for the affiliate image, and it says 'last updated June 23, 2015', so you're right that it's been a while there. Usually though the Packers project tries to keep the info up to date and fakes out of the list on en.wiki. Nate (chatter) 23:57, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

Photos from Press Information Bureau (PIB)[edit]

Hi Magog the Ogre, @Jameslwoodward: @LX: Sorry to bother you guys but I had a question. I am aware that we have gone over this in the past at an extensive un-deletion discussion here ([1]) and then a follow-up discussion I had on Magog's talk page here ([2]). But recently I came across this image File:Ram Nath Kovind 2017.jpg which was attributed to PIB and uploaded by @TDKR Chicago 101:. I have specific questions on this - (1) Are we now allowed to upload images released under PIB on Commons? (2) If understand the wording correctly, now, can this be extended to Indian Government ministry websites? To be more specifc, can we now upload images from Indian Army and Indian Air Force? I am also pinging @Krishna Chaitanya Velaga: who was instrumental in getting us the OTRS from Indian Navy and is pursuing this for some time. Thanks. Adamgerber80 (talk) 15:56, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

I don't know why you're asking me this question, nor why it's on my talk page instead of a central location. Regardless, the DR discussion was clearly in favor of not uploading these images. But apparently they have OTRS verification now, so who knows. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:58, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi Magog the Ogre, Sorry if this questions does not belong here. I am happy to ask it at another community location. Do you have a recommendation for it? (Sorry I am not very well versed with Wikimedia Commons). Is Commons:Village pump/Copyright a good location? Thanks. Adamgerber80 (talk) 00:15, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@Adamgerber80: No need to apologize. You'll get much better feedback when asking the whole community. Yes I recommend VP/C. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:26, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@Adamgerber80: Ping me once the discussion is moved to an appropriate page. Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk · mail) 04:43, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Media Issues on Jugger page[edit]

@Magog the Ogre: Hi Magog, i'd like to know if it's possible to put back some of the deleted files on the Jugger article, the following files are made by myself, but they are not protected or licensed (i have the original PSDs, i just don't know to proove they're mine)

For the rest of the pictures, every time i indicated that it wasn't my work, and mentionned every authors and sources. i'd like to know if it's possible to published them in any way ? do i have to manually confirm that i have the author blessing ? Sorry, it's my first time on wikipedia, it's a little confusing.

Take Care Magog ! JuggerParis (talk) 10:41, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

@JuggerParis: Hello. I apologize, this was a misunderstanding due to some of your uploads existing elsewhere online. I have restored all but one of your uploads. Nonetheless, I recommend you go through the process of OTRS to verify your identity, so that no one makes the mistake again. Instructions in French are here: Commons:Messages type.
Can you clarify where you got the base map: File:Jugger World Map.png? Thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:08, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: I'll go do the OTRS Process as well, thanks again Magog ! I took the base map here on this website
— Preceding unsigned comment added by JuggerParis (talk • contribs) 09:20, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
@JuggerParis: thanks for the OTRS. As for the map, I couldn't find a free license, so it is automatically an "unfree" derivative work, as we call it.
Would you have the time to recreate it using one of our many free maps as a base (Category:Blank maps of the world)? If it is too onerous, I'll see if we can get someone to help out with that. Face-smile.svg Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:44, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: I sure have time ! thanks again for all the help Magog, really cheers me up Face-smile.svg JuggerParis (talk) 19:19, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
