Hello, I contact you concerning "Lenz_theodor_friedrich_carl.jpg" "This media file has been nominated for deletion since 26 October 2015." I'am not the author of the photo. The author is unknown. It's a 'family-photo' which is in my possession. Friedrich Lenz is my great-great-grandfather. I hope this information can help to classify this photo.

Low Newton-by-the-Sea MMB 08.jpg[edit]

Hi, please may you confirm when this photograph was taken? I think I recognize the dog. Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 17:04, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

@ the date's on the page and it's correct to within a few minutes. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:51, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Use of COM:Nudity[edit]

You may be interested in the outcome of Commons:Undeletion_requests/Current_requests#File:Male_erect_penis.jpg. It is a case of a photograph on Commons for 6 years being deleted because it was overwritten by a newer photograph. The people involved are experienced, so this is disappointing. -- (talk) 04:18, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Hooray, early morning penis! -mattbuck (Talk) 07:44, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Uploaded a file of yours to wikimedia[edit]

Good evening,

I uploaded a photograph of yours to Wikimedia. I'm just letting you know so you can change the title to your naming scheme as per last time. I've had a go, but I've no clue what the MMB part is.

Thanks, Jcc (talk) 19:43, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jcc. Thanks for letting me know. The number after MMB is just the number of the photo on Commons, so generally it'll be the next one numerically in that sequence, in this case 04. I've sorted out the categories and such. I think you probably made a better picture with that crop than my original. -mattbuck (Talk) 21:29, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Permission for the photo of Klausbernd Vollmar File:PRFotoGlas.jpg[edit]

Please send permission for File:PRFotoGlas.jpg to OTRS

Hi Matt, I have a permission from Konrad Lenz for the use of the photo. What do you want me to do? Should he contact you personally to conform it? Best regards, Leserin — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leserin789 (talk • contribs)

@Leserin789:, if you follow the instructions at Commons:OTRS you will see an email address you can forward your correspondence to and an OTRS agent will guide you the rest of the way. If you could also reply at Commons:Deletion requests/File:PRFotoGlas.jpg to explain to anyone looking at the deletion request that you're contacting OTRS, that would be great. -mattbuck (Talk) 13:59, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
@Mattbuck: I have followed your instructions and I have sent Konrad Lenz the E-mail to use. I hope it works out alright! Leserin
Leserin789 thanks for that, the OTRS team should be able to sort everything out. Oh, one more thing, please remember to sign your posts with four tildes ~~~~ - this automatically adds your username and the date/time. Happy editing! -mattbuck (Talk) 22:13, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Clarification requested[edit]

... here. I assume that by "you" you mean the person who nominated this for deletion, not me. I took the photo at a conference where I photographed as many panelists as I could; I barely know the person in question and don't live in the same part of the country. - Jmabel ! talk 18:00, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Well get out your x-ray megatelescopic zoom lens, Jmabel! -mattbuck (Talk) 19:23, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Updated/archived link needed[edit]

Hi Matt. The link on File:Virgin Trains East Coast logo.pdf is dead. Can you update it or find an archived page so I can review it? INeverCry 20:10, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

INeverCry, see [1], second row, mouseover it and it shows CC-BY. They seem to have uploaded more stuff, I might be transferring some of that soon! -mattbuck (Talk) 20:37, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done I've updated the link and passed the review. If you upload more stuff from there, tag it for LR so I can get it reviewed. I usually get reviews done within a day or so. INeverCry 21:12, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

User:Fæ/BLP overwrites[edit]

This report caused a crash (apparently), it's unclear why after such a long history of running without a problem that the queries became long to run. It's been set so that queries cannot run in parallel. As a user of the report, if you notice a loss of utility from the lag between image overwrites and the report being updated getting too long, do drop me a note.
