Page Hondupedia[edit]

Hello Magog, I noticed I was suspended due to copyright violation, I tried uploading the files and giving copyrights as I thought they were fit, nevertheless apparantly I am doing it wrong. Can you guide me in how to format the pictures to avoid this problem??? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hondupedia (talk • contribs) 14:52, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

@Hondupedia: Sí, te puedo ayudar. Gracias por contestar. Estas tres cosas son las más importantes para usuarios nuevos del Wikipedia en espaňol:
  • Si encuentras una imagen en el internet, casi nunca es aceptable subirla en Commons. Hay ciertas excepciones: algunas de Flickr tienen licencias libres que sí se pueden usar. Este es un ensayo que tenemos en inglés: Commons:Flickr files.
  • Ni la Wikipedia en español ni Commons permiten el uso legítimo. Esto significa que no puedes subir los logotipos que encuentres en la Wikipedia en inglés.
  • Hay ciertos logotipos que son muy sencillos que sí se permiten porque son bajo la umbral de originalidad. Si sigues a esa enlace, verás unos ejemplos.
Si tienes una pregunta, no dudes en preguntármela. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:38, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Could you fix and restore File:Moeda50AnosBC.png ??[edit]

Dear Magog, I see the File:Moeda50AnosBC.png was unlinked from ptwiki after you deleted it. It seems the uploader has marked it as "own work", which is, obviously, not the case. If I provide you the correct metadata, could you fix and restore the file?

Thanks!! --Usien6 (talk) 20:31, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

PS.: I mean, if you can and don't mind. I wonder if I sounded rude, which was not the intent. I am not really used to anglophone politeness. Neither to inner workings of the Commons project. Sorry if I did --Usien6 (talk) 21:00, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
@Usien6: Given my Spanish, I know just enough Portuguese to be dangerous. Still, I think sem fins lucrativos means without commercial use, which is an unacceptable condition according to COM:L. I also don't think that {{Money-BR}} applies to the image. Let me know if I'm mistaken. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:27, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
You are right. --Usien6 (talk) 14:02, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Improvements ideas for User:Magog the Ogre/PD ineligible[edit]

Thank you for great tool!

I think will be good idea to add file and uploader name; to sort files inside days by uploader, and then by file name; for bitmap images it'll be great to have indication of {{Convert to SVG}} and {{Use TeX}}; to add update button and updates counter; indication of deletion/no permissions/etc temaplates.

@EugeneZelenko: maybe some day. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:46, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Migration review?[edit]

Any idea why? CC-BY-4.0 is pretty darn current. (I actually meant to do Cc-by-sa-4.0 and I'll go back and fix that, but that's neither here nor there.) - Jmabel ! talk 17:19, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: I still haven't gotten around to fixing the bug because of the way that it's coded. Sorry; I will get to that in the next week. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:34, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Democratic colors changed for clarity[edit]

Hello, thanks for the Edit on de.WP. Clarity I think is unfortunately not. Clinton in the File:Democratic Party presidential primaries results by county, 2016.svg it has Color:gold. In the File:Democratic Party presidential primaries results, 2016.svg ist has Col--Sarkana frag den ℑ Vampir 19:18, 5 February 2016 (UTC)or:#d2b55b - i think consistency would be better.

@Sarkana: which color do you think Bernie should be? Should he be green to match en:Democratic Party presidential primaries, 2016? You can change if you want or just ask me to. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:35, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Magog the Ogre: yes, i think green (color:#228b22) is most sense. Then he to match to en:Template:Democratic Party presidential primaries, 2016. And i can not edit an SVG-File. :(--Sarkana frag den ℑ Vampir 15:21, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Special:Contributions/Fennoscandic seems to be WPK, so he should be blocked. --Stryn (talk) 15:31, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
