Logo TSG 1899 Hoffenheim[edit]

Hallo. The Logo of the Football Club "TSG 1899 Hoffenheim" is old. I have the right and current Logo. How can I change the Logo on the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim Wikipedia page?????? Or can you change the Logo?? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Janein123 (talk • contribs) 09:32, 05 October 2016 (UTC)

@Janein123: which file are you talking about? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:46, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: I talk about the Logo of the football Club "TSG 1899 Hoffenheim" When you watch the wikipedia page of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, you can see the Logo of the Club on the right side of the page. You loaded up this Logo but this Logo is not the current one. So I want to change the Logo because I have the correct one. How can I do this? Can you change the Logo when I send you the correct one?? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Janein123 (talk • contribs) 09:34, October 6, 2016‎ (UTC)
@Janein123: OK, so I assume you mean File:Logo TSG Hoffenheim.svg or w:File:TSG 1899 Hoffenheim logo.svg. What does the current logo look like? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:36, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre:This FIle ist the current one: File:TSG Logo-Standard 4c.png --> I loaded it up last week, but I don´t know how to put it on the Wikipedia page of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. Can you do this? That would be great! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Janein123 (talk • contribs) 07:16, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
I mean, you just change the file name; there's nothing else to it. Like this. I don't know what else you're looking for. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:54, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

User:Vietnam Football League[edit]

Hi Magog the Ogre. I see you have tagged File:VLeague1 Logo.png with a {{npd}} template. Just for reference, this file seems to have been uploaded by User:Vietnam Football League a couple of times before as File:2016V.League1.png, File:2016V.League1.png and File:Logo Toyota V.League 2016.png, and it has been deleted each time. This editor has uploaded quite of number of files as "own work" that have been subsequently deleted as copyvios and for lacking proper permission, but simply reuploads them at a later date without addressing any of the licensing issues. I am not sure if English is an issue here because the editor never responds to anything posted on their user talk page, but the editor might be under the impression that images which can be downloaded for "free" from various websites means that the editor now owns the image and its copyright. I don't know how else to explain why the editor keeps uploading the same files or similiar files and claim them as "own work". The user name might also be an issue as well per COM:IU since it appears to represent a group/organization and is promotional. -- Marchjuly (talk) 23:24, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

This user has had enough multilingual warnings. If s/he actually represents the organization, s/he can follow the process details on that page. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:13, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for checking on this. While it's unfortunate when an editor gets any blocked, I agree that this particular editor has been warned about such uploads enough times in the past. They have either decided to ignore these warnings or they simply do not have the competence required to be uploading files to Commons. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:13, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Date cleanup[edit]

Hi Magog, could you use your bot to clean up dates contained in the taken parameter of the {{Flickr}} template. Example: File:Igrexa de Santiago de Gustei.jpg. Search: [1]. Thanks, --Arnd (talk) 17:18, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

@Aschroet: yeah I'll get to that. It might be a while. I'm trying my luck at OAuth right now so I don't have to rely on TUSC. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:22, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
Cool, thank you a lot. Good luck. --Arnd (talk) 04:27, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Luise Kaish image "Sphere" at Dartmouth College's Hood Museum[edit]

Hello Magog--Thank you for your message. I have permission from the Hood Museum to use the image, which either I or they can forward by e-mail. I just wasn't sure who to contact, or how to relay that information. Navigating these image permissions is new to me, and I want to do the right thing! I just wasn't sure of the best way to demonstrate that I have the needed permissions. Any help or guidance you could offer would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time. Sarahcmccollum (talk)

@Sarahcmccollum: Hi Sarah. It is no problem. Please see the instructions here: Commons:Email templates. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:21, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, Magog! I appreciate it. Sarahcmccollum (talk)

user uploading hundreds of snapshots[edit]

Hi Magog- How do we deal with a user like this? He seems to be using Commons as a personal photo album--of images of unexceptional quality, with timestamps--and placing them in galleries on multiple wikis. He's uploaded hundreds of snaps of some convention, all with meaningless filenames. Thanks in advance for any tips. --Eric my en.wp talk page 19:07, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

@EricM: he seems to be uploading a lot of useful content, many of it with useful filenames. I'm not really seeing where the problem is. Can you be more specific? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 15:30, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
Well, if you don't see a problem in his contribution list, that tells me there might not be one. I'm not familiar enough with Commons policy to cite any rule; it just looks to me like he's making a mess here. I managed to get a link to an IRC thread from yesterday that might help answer your question (My handle there is MrPique). I got the impression from a couple people there, who might be admins, that they agreed with me that much of his content was out of scope. Hope the link works, and thanks for your time! --Eric my en.wp talk page 23:28, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
@EricM: with regards to just inserting images: we don't worry about that. We leave such decisions up to the host wiki. As for timestamps, you can mark such images with {{watermark}}. We don't usually delete images for that reason. We also don't always have to use all images someone uploads. In fact, most images are not in use. As long as they could be realistically usable at some point, they are in scope. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:34, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the info. So, just to be sure I understand, the 281 machine-named snapshots of unknown people watching game theory conference PowerPoint slides are acceptable by our standards? --Eric my en.wp talk page 13:42, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
And if I haven't pestered you enough, I'm adding a link to another question as I try to better familiarize myself with our criteria: User_talk:INeverCry#Thanks_and_question. --Eric my en.wp talk page 22:50, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
@EricM: if you think they aren't useful, you are welcome to nominate them for deletion. You might find a friendly audience. But you might also upset a regular (and notable) user with a lot of useful contributions. Personally, I don't think it's worth it. Other than that, I can't give you a rigid guideline, because none exists. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:10, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Now that I see he's in my dad's age category of computer user, I realize that he likely has no idea that he might not want to upload every snap he takes at a convention. --Eric my en.wp talk page 02:28, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello I'm hamza from Morocco

I study at university I am 22 years old my hobby boxing and swimming and music how are you I want to ask ? what is the problem 630 10:31, 21 October 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by HAMZACLAY (talk • contribs) 10:31, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Maybe User:Jameslwoodward can answer this, as he nominated the files for deletion. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:10, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, Magog.
In both cases, if you disagree, you may comment under my words on either DR. If you make comments in other places, such as Commons talk:Deletion requests/File:HAMZA CLAY BACK.jpg , they will not likely be seen by anyone. If you have questions about Commons, you may ask Magog here, or me at my talk page. You may also ask questions in English at Commons:Village pump or in Arabic at Commons:الميدان. .     Jim . . . .

File:RUC PSNI Dungiven.JPG[edit]

Just curious: how did you find out the name of the original uploader? Kind regards, Tekstman (talk) 20:15, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
