File Boiry.jpg[edit]

Hello @Majora:, I am the owner of the picture File:Boiry.jpg

When I uploaded it in 2016, Hab'rtix asked for deletion arguing that the person died in 2014, so the picture could not be my own. To prove that it was my own I uploaded the picture ːFileːAraucanieboiry.jpg, which was the original one and which has Exif datas. The only difference between these two pictures is that I added by photoshop the collar. Racconish came then and wanted a higher resolution, which I dont have. So the original reason for the deletion request was no more valid, as the Exif datas for ːFileːAraucanieboiry.jpg where at a date where this person was still alive.
So please undelete the [[ːFileːBoiry.jpg]. I uploaded again ːFileːAraucanieboiry.jpg, where you can see the Exif datas. Iexplained this already on the Commons talk page but it seems that it was not clear. Thanks

Scola45, I deleted File:Araucanieboiry.jpg as a recreation of a previously deleted file. You should either wait for Majora's answer or ask for undeletion. Thanks, — Racconish💬 11:00, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

ːHello@Racconish:, File:Araucanieboiry.jpg has been previously deleted by myself. If you would go back to the talk on Commons, you will see that I uploaded this file only to prove that ːFileːBoiry.jpg is my on work an that the original picture has well been taken by me in 2011. I even asked in the thread if I can delete File:Araucanieboiry.jpg again after verification of the Exif data by Hab'rtix. I dont want File:Araucanieboiry.jpg existing on commons, that's why I will delete it again once ːFileːBoiry.jpg will be restored.

--Scola45 (talk) 12:50, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry Scola45 but neither of those photos had proper EXIF data on them. They both said photoshop. Which is fine but that does not prove that you are the owner of the images nor is it what Racconish asked you for. That coupled with the fact that the photo can be found on other websites without a free license means that we would need COM:OTRS permission to restore the image. You are welcome to request undeletion but I will say as much there as well. At this point in time I stand by my closure of that DR as delete. Please follow the procedure outlined at the OTRS link or you are welcome to appeal at UDR. --Majora (talk) 22:48, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Imperial Pacific Logo.png[edit]

Hi Majora. I appreciate that you closed this DR, but there is another file listed in the same DR File:Imperial Pacific Logo 400.png which should be deleted as well. Thanks! --Wcam (talk) 22:32, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done My bad. All set. --Majora (talk) 22:44, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

"Totally unnecessary to have all the information here." FoP Provision of Indonesia[edit]

Dear Majora,

My last edit on [FoP Provision] was done with good intention, because I see that the regulation referred to in the previous version are not valid anymore. Other than that, the things you consider as "Totally unnecessary to have all the information here." there IS ACTUALLY NECESSARY. If you don't like it because it's too long, please revert to my last edit version and I'll give you the simplified one. Or at least give me access to my last edit because I also need it as a source for my other article.


--Hilmanasdf (talk) 08:07, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Your changes are in the history. Like all edits are. And having all that on a page that is dedicated to one specific slice of copyright law is completely unnecessary. If you want to put all of that on Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Indonesia that would be far more appropriate. Putting 10,000+ bytes of extraneous information on a page that has to contain information on 154 other countries is excessive and will continue to be removed if you put it back. --Majora (talk) 16:53, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Protected padlock icons[edit]

Hey! I'm the original author of the enwiki's new padlocks and I forgot to implement some suggestions from others (mainly minor typographic error fixes) into the grey shackles variant that were already implemented into the original designs. The up-to-date ones are uploaded at Category:Page Protection Padlock Redesign - (Grey shackles) (2018) and they have file names starting with Z. Please upload the new ones as the editing have been restricted. Sorry for the screw-up. XYZtSpace (talk) 05:52, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

@XYZtSpace: ✓ Done These files should be edited as minimally as possible due to the server load required to change them across all the pages that they are, and will be, used on. So for now done but going forward please be aware of that. --Majora (talk) 06:18, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Mp4 files, ground nesting bee[edit]

I only just noticed File:דבורי אדמה.webm from the same uploader (it was deleted, so I didn't notice before). The translation says "drones". Possibly this was the same video? I'd prefer a file that's uploaded by the author. It was deleted for not having a license (V2C is tricky with that), but we could just copy the license from the mp4 (like I did when uploading File:Ground Nesting Bee bzz bzz.webm). - Alexis Jazz ping plz 04:46, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

@Alexis Jazz: It was the same video as File:Ground Nesting Bee bzz bzz.webm. Would you like me to undelete it and then delete your version? --Majora (talk) 21:14, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
Assuming the quality is also the same, yes please. Perhaps redirect File:Ground Nesting Bee bzz bzz.webm, the new filename the uploader picked is RTL which is confusing for those who are used to LTR. I checked the other uploaders btw and added a {{tick}} to a bunch more videos on Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:MP4 files. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 23:37, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: ✓ Done File:דבורי אדמה.webm. I'm not entirely sure what to do with the source box on the file page now but I'm ok with leaving it even if the names no longer match. Also I got the new ticks on the DR. Thank you for doing this work. It is appreciated. --Majora (talk) 03:54, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
For the Ground nesting bee, I simply changed it to {{own}}. I created {{Converted MP4}} only for those cases where I (or someone else who is not the author) uploads a converted video. I know from experience that a red link in the source field is dangerous, so when the uploader does not match the author this needs to be explained. It's not needed in cases where the original uploader reuploaded the video. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 04:07, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Cherenkov Wavefront.svg[edit]

Re: "nor any valid reason, to delete this file that I can see". The file is a duplicate of another file. Glrx (talk) 02:41, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

There are obviously a lot of other things going on that make that file not just a duplicate, Glrx. Therefore, that rationale is invalid. They can coexist together perfectly fine. --Majora (talk) 03:45, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
I disagree. The earliest version of CW had text on a straight line path converted to rotated text. The second and only other version had the text converted to paths. There's nothing remarkable or interesting in either version. Yes, the versions can coexist, but the whole point of CW was to be a functional duplicate of C2 that librsvg could rednder. librsvg renders C2 without difficulty now. Glrx (talk) 05:16, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry you disagree but I don't consider that reasoning valid and there was not consensus to delete the image anyways in that DR. You may renominate the image for deletion if you wish but the result will most likely be the same. --Majora (talk) 05:23, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Uh, Sarang voted keep but said there should be only one image ("perhaps C2"). Perhelion voted keep but later deferred to Sarang and JoKalliauer; JoKalliauer gave reasons to keep, but then recently struck his keep rationale. I see no support for keep, and the image is not used (except on your talk page above). A second workaround version of C2 has already been deleted. Glrx (talk) 05:37, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Edit warring in user_talk:HutheMeow‎‎[edit]

Please, note that Commons:Talk page guidelines don’t state that IPs may purge user_talk of registered users at will. You seemingly started an edit war against Jeff G. who uses his rollback privilege to combat disruptive editing by one (or more) users from Australia. Your edit summary reflects your personal opinion—that is of course allowed—but you should carefully distinguish your recently acquired rôle of a Commons admin from your private disputes. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 05:50, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Excuse me? Perhaps you shouldn't assume what is going on in other people's minds, Incnis Mrsi. I don't have any dispute with Jeff. Public or private. Never had as far as I'm aware. And not surprisingly COM:Rollback explicitly says that rollback is only to be used for vandalism. Period. "Disruptive edits" as you put it aren't vandalism. So by your own admission, what Jeff did was abuse of the right. Oh and no where on the talk page guidelines does it say that they can't. IPs are users too. Oh, and also, one edit is not an edit war. I stopped a brewing edit war. My "recent" acquiring of the admin right is also totally irrelevant but your veiled threat and obvious put down is noted. In any case, I highly suggest that in this instance, where you, by your own admission are so very clearly in the wrong, that you mind your own business please. --Majora (talk) 12:02, 19 November 2018 (UTC)
