Please note that I am not an admin. I can neither restore the deleted file nor can I see it once it is gone. I primarily tag copyright violations on Commons and in my judgement the file you uploaded could not have been hosted here. See the licensing requirements for more information. I did not delete your file. I only tagged it. An administrator deleted your file.

All images uploaded to Commons must be uploaded with a specific license that allows anyone to use and modify the image at any time for any purpose (including commercial use) with varying degrees of credit given to the original author depending on the license. You should assume that anything you find online is copyrighted and cannot be uploaded here unless there is an explicit notice on the page you got the image from.

Logos are always assumed to be copyrighted unless they are too simple to be copyrighted. The vast majority of logos will be tagged and deleted on sight.

If you have any further questions please feel free to post below and I will answer your question as best I can.

In regards to OTRS related business:
OTRS is a private, confidential, service. If you are here regarding one of my actions as an OTRS agent please note that posts on this page are public and permanent. If you are asking about a ticket that you are not directly involved in, I will be unable to give you specifics due to the confidential nature of the service. When asking questions please provide a ticket number or a link to the image in question so I can assist you in a timely manner. Thank you.


since it got closed by Davey2010, I wasn't totally ready to jump in yet. Mostly because I was gonna postpone full-speed reviewing until a few weeks later. I'll put a new request later. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Artix Kreiger (talk • contribs) 22:59, January 27, 2018 (UTC)

Probably best not to apply for a right that requires such scrutiny unless you are fully prepared to use it. I never really looked at whether you were right for the permission since your opening statement showed that you didn't really want it. --Majora (talk) 23:10, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
yeah admittadly, I kind of hoped it would bring some scrutiny for some feedback. Admittadly, yes it was the wrong place. Any timeframe you suggest? a week or so? Artix Kreiger (talk) 23:16, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Are you actually going to take it seriously and commit to helping with the backlog? If so, perhaps three weeks to a month. Provided that everything else checks out. As I said previously, I haven't looked at whether you were actually right for the permission. --Majora (talk) 23:42, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

In the future, yes. I will commit to cutting some of the back logs.Artix Kreiger (talk) 03:15, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

How do I contact you? (moved from userpage)[edit]

How do I message you about the images that I am copyright owner on which are being deleted? I'm sorry if this is not the right medium, this website has a really confusing UI. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AmyLeeRobinson (talk • contribs)

@AmyLeeRobinson: Hi Amy, the instructions for doing so are within the notice that I left on your talk page. What you have to do is head on over to COM:Email templates and use one of the two methods to send a copyright release form to our copyright response team. The interactive release generator will just create the same thing as the email template so either will do. Please read, fill out, and send in the release form to the email mentioned and please send the email from an address that is associated with the content. Sending it from an official email for the company will help speed the process along as it helps with verification purposes. When you do that you should get an automated response back with a ticket number. If you just let me know that ticket number I can take a look at it. If you have any other questions please let me know. --Majora (talk) 22:34, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

Mai Dubai Logo font[edit]

Hi there!

I'm Chielou...need some help..May i know what font style is used in Mai Dubai logo? Need that kind of font..I've been browsing nearly 8 hours searching for that font. Hope you can help me...Sorry for being a bother.

Thanks and God Bless —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 22:47, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry but I don't know. I just uploaded the image. I don't have anything to do with the company. I tried to do a quick search myself and came up empty. It is possible that it is a custom font designed specifically for the company. --Majora (talk) 22:56, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Ticket number[edit]

Thanks for your clarification. Should the ticket numbers be posted here, to the deletions request page, or should they be forwarded to you privately?

Altman (talk) 17:09, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

@Altman: You can post the ticket number here. That isn't the private part of the permission email and it will be attached to any image anyways when permissions are approved. --Majora (talk) 18:17, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
— Roger that, thanks! There's more than one, as I had to track down someone from decades ago while I was at it. Fortunately, I still talk with her :)
Altman (talk) 19:48, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Everything appears to be fine with them. I just don't have the time right now to do my normal checks. I will get to them later today. Thanks! --Majora (talk) 20:10, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
— Thank you! Altman (talk) 01:07, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry for not getting to these sooner. I got through one. The other two I'm going to have to do tomorrow. One of which I'm going to have to get in contact with an admin to do some undeleting. Thank you for your patience in this and I appreciate you getting the permissions in order. Everything looks fine and there isn't anything to worry about. I just got distracted with some other things. --Majora (talk) 05:37, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
@Majora: Mahalo, I appreciate your assistance. One question in regards to credits: if the copyright holder prefers a specific alternative to listing their full name under attribution, does that order need to be specified now, or—provided she uses her own account to do so—can she change the attribution field herself later? — Altman (talk) 15:20, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
@Altman: My apologies for not asking that. Yes, the creator can require any attribution that they want. Technically the copyright license chosen requires attribution for any reusers but what is actually being used as the attribution line is up to the copyright holder. In the interest of making sure they are comfortable with the images being hosted here I have removed the name from the file pages. I can also have it scrubbed from the page history if that is their desire. Again, my apologies. That is just standard procedure when we receive permissions due to the attribution requirement for that license. --Majora (talk) 21:18, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

About the copyright[edit]

You mentioned that my picture File:Andrawos-white.jpg is copyrighted, held by the photographer. I own this picture and I have took this picture in my camera for the photographer himself! He is a good friend of mine in Sweden and the picture is MINE. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mosheeko (talk • contribs) 04:40, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

It is not only all over the Internet. But because you took it from Picasa you eliminated any metadata from the image. You also uploaded other professional photos that have other issues. What did you expect? Follow the instructions on COM:ET and sent in a release form to our copyright response team. --Majora (talk) 04:47, 12 February 2018 (UTC)


Hi Majora, as you cited an OTRS ticket in an edit at File:Jugulator amplissimus.jpg, are you a OTRS-volunteer? If yes, please put some userbox or similar on your userpage, so that one can easily recognize you as somebody with OTRS access. Thanks. --Túrelio (talk) 08:38, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

@Túrelio: I have the OTRS top icon on my user page and the notice on the top of this page in regards to OTRS matters. Were you looking for something additional? I'm not a huge fan of userboxes for user rights. I prefer the smaller, unobtrusive, top icons for those things. --Majora (talk) 21:41, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
