Criticism is something you can avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.

Flickr promoting[edit]

Good day, Mifter. Please do not close these requests, it's up to admins to close these requests and find if there is consensus for them to be a flickr reviewer. Best regards, --Kanonkas(talk) 07:04, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Incorrect, see the instructions: "After a few days, a reviewer or administrator determines whether there are no severe objections to the candidate." (emphasis mine) How do you turn this on (talk) 11:05, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

checkimages.py[edit]

Hi, I don't think that the situation regarding the images on en.wiki is a lot harder than here on commons, so you should try to do as I've done for commons, i.e. add the english category here:

category_with_licenses = {
        'commons': 'Category:License tags',
        'en'     : None,

There should be a category with (almost) all the licenses allowed on en.wiki. The same you should do for PageWithHiddenTemplates and PageWithAllowedTemplates. In the first you can add a list of templates that are not licenses, in the second a list of templates that instead are licenses. But please see that the bot checks if in all the templates in the image's description there's a valid license. For example, if I create a template named "User:Filnik/my-pd-license" with {{PD-Old}} in it, the bot will see the pd-old and will let the image as "OK". To put all the templates will make you waste a lot of time but then the bot won't make mistakes. I still need to put some templates, indeed my report is a bit "full", as soon as possible I will clean it and put all the licenses in the right place.

If you still have questions, problems, other, feel free to ask :-) --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 12:50, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

File:Jimmy Wales Fundraiser Appeal.JPG[edit]

Alisa images[edit]

How could it be that two of four Alisa images were deleted, while all four are under the same license? It is CC-BY, as you can see there and there, so there's no copyright violation. --Beaumain (talk) 07:22, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Image flickr[edit]

Hi Mifter, this picture http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Occidente.PNG is not on flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/14008778@N00/336371204/ , then it must be deleted from commons ? Lockon (talk) 18:50, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

No, to my knowledge, it doesn't have to be deleted, because a creative commons license is irrevocable (Once you post it to flickr under a CC license, if someone copies it and then you delete they are under no obligation to delete the photo) and when I checked it on July 21st, it was available a CC-BY license which means that it was licensed under a CC-BY and is doesn't have to be deleted from Commons, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask me or at the Commons:Help Desk. Thanks and All the Best, Mifter (talk) 22:45, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Mifter!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Help needed - mass license change[edit]

I found that one user had uploaded lots of Israeli stamps, which were deleted because of commons' bureaucracy - the stamps are PD, but they weren't written in Commons:Stamps/Public domain, so after a negotiation, the PD statement was written (Commons:Stamps/Public_domain#Israel) and all stamps must be tagged by {{PD-IL-exempt}} instead of {{PD-because|copy or scan of a banknote or stamp in Israel are part of the public domain. See: Category talk:Stamps of Israel}}... Since I was starting to feel like a bot (or like Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times), I've started to look at the bot list. Could your bot help me, since there are still more images to restore? Yuval Y § Chat § 16:38, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Never mind, I've done it myself. Yuval Y § Chat § 20:17, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

PD review[edit]

Hi!

I write to you because you are listed here Commons:PD_files/reviewers#List_of_PD_reviewers.

The Category:PD files for review was flooded some time ago and perhaps therefore PD review seems to have stopped. After some discussion on Commons_talk:PD_files#Has_review_stopped? the category has been cleaned up.

Perhaps you would like to come back and take a look at some of the remaining files?

Thank you!

Better source request for Image:James H. Robertson.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:James H. Robertson.jpg. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the help desk or me at my talkpage. Thank you. High Contrast (talk) 21:29, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Western Wall April 2006.jpg[edit]

Mifter, Thank you for verifying the image Wilsons Arch Womens Section.jpg (from flikr.com) for the article Wilson's Arch (Jerusalem). In addition to keeping that image in the article, I would like to replace the photo in the info box with Western Wall April 2006.jpg, which has a much better view of Wilson's Arch, but I see the photo has a template that notes the photo should not be used until it is reviewed and the template is removed. Could you please take a look at that photo and remove the template if you think it should be removed? Thanks!! NearTheZoo (talk) 22:38, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Please ignore this request. Looks like it's just been taken care of. Thanks! NearTheZoo (talk) 00:44, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
