I am back!

Hello everybody
I am sorry for my long and unexpected absence, I was very busy with my problems, and they didn't let me log in to wiki,
In past 80 days I was very sad and depressed, I really missed everything and I wish never have to leave Commons again if life lets me I am planing to be more active from now on.

Happy holidays and keep editing Commons :)
P.S. Did you missed me? did you even notice my absence?

Hi Mmxx,

Please ignore to deletion my photos because all photos taken by me and the name shown is my alias name (Yagoozaa)

Thks & Best Regards, Tawee Ch. (Yagoozaa)

Dear user, I'll not withdraw my nomination unless you provide me some evidence, do you own the original files, in full size and without border and watermark? if yes please upload them over current versions.   ■ MMXX  talk  20:59, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Comment by User:Hakan DAMAR

  • Hi, I'm sorry for upload screenshot file. Please, don't remove my wiki account. :(
Dear user, there is no problem, just remember don't do it again, also it is useful if you read Commons rules before uploading any image,

File:Forum Mleczarskie Praktyka.JPG

Mmxx, I wonder about the reason to post the given info box at, and the immediate deletion (though the box' text says something else, ... discussion ...) of this file, although the file already was used in 2 interwikis ? --Wistula (talk) 12:18, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Dear Wistula, I am not sure what the image was and it is already deleted due to copyright violation, but from your history I can guess it was an scan from book cover or something like that, please keep in mind that Wikimedia Commons only accepts free contents, and an original scan does not mean you have the right to upload those files to Commons, please spend some time and read Commons' rules carefully,
Commons:Image casebook
Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:57, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
No, not an old book cover, but an actual magazine cover. I am quite careful about the rules, thats why I mentioned an already earlier given permission about covers from copyright-owner Nathusius Investments Sp.z o.o. at the description, while loading up. And thats why I wonder that file has been eliminated - even without giving notice to me/a chance to clarify the eventual still unclear copyright situation. I guess, I have to upload the file again now ? Rgds --Wistula (talk) 15:06, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
If you have the permission from copyright holder, then you can upload the file, after uploading please add {{OTRS pending}} to image, so everybody can understand that you are waiting for a permission. Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  20:15, 2 January 2010 (UTC)


Hello, could you please check all files uploaded by this user? I've checked many of them and they were copied from other websites. In many cases, user claimed s/he is the author, and that the image is his/her own work, although it was copied from other websites (and were uploaded with the same resolution, even for small images). I trully believe all images were added wrongly. Thanks, Ednei amaral (talk) 01:49, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your notice, yes, I too think that many of them are suspect.   ■ MMXX  talk  15:09, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: "Where does file File:4chanannouncement.jpg come from?"

Hello, you asked where the image came from, it was is a screenshot taken in mozilla, the content is from an old 4chan thread as well as a edited version of a article, of course all free and not copyrighted, the image in the article or the article itself is not copyrighted either, therefor i dont see any reason to edit it out from the article..

Kind Regards, zgdthree

Hi, I didn't notice the 4chan name at first place, this image is copyright violation, please read Commons:Screenshots for more information. Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  07:01, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

user Sheik26

by the way, I have seen a deletion request from you for one of his files, but for me nearly all files of user Sheik26 look strange, I doubt that they are selfmade, talk page User talk:Sheik26, it is not really clear what to do. Best wishes Cholo Aleman (talk) 12:33, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps we can open a mass deletion request for all of these images and the reasons would be "outside of project scope" and "unusable", I just don't know why I forget them, thank you for your notice.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:16, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Here it is: Commons:Deletion requests/Images uploaded by User:Sheik26   ■ MMXX  talk  22:53, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! - for me they all look like a copyrightviolation, very unusually. I watch the deletion request and will comment it in some days. Cholo Aleman (talk) 04:40, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Comment by User:Cheesemaker30

Mmxx, The file I uploaded is a file that I own the copyright to and am fine putting into the public domain. I thought that I indicated that in my upload form. Please advise.

Thank you.

Hi, The image which you have uploaded was an screenshot of WiFi-Where iPhone application which belongs to 3Jacks Software. are you owner of 3Jacks Software or do you work for them? if yes please tell me, then I can help you, Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:06, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Cardiff Arms Park Male Choir images

Hi, I uploaded a photo of Cardiff Arms Park Male Choir along with the front cover images of four of our CDs. I created all of the cover images myself, and none of the images have been copyrighted. Drlast (talk) 13:24, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear user, for protecting you and your choir's rights we need a prove that you (as creator and copyright holder) is willing to release these images under CC-BY 3.0 license (which you have chosen for your images), please send an email using your official email address like this one ( to OTRS ( ) stating that you are willing to release these images under mentioned license, meanwhile please also add {{OTRS Pending}} template to your images. if you need any other help please ask me, Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:44, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Your Question about Andre_Fedorow.jpg

Hi, you asked where the file is coming from. I took the picture and I own all rights but its free to use everywhere. Sorry i am new here. Did I missed something?

Dear user, if you are the photographer of this image then you must have it's higher resolution or perhaps not edited version, you should upload either one of them (high res. or not edited version) or provide a more appropriate source which we can verify your claim. Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  07:24, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi MMXX, i uploaded the unedited file, if u want a higher res on top, just give me you email. best, sky ( )

Dear sky, do you have any connection whit Andre Fedorow/Julian Styles? because a derivative work of this image is available on his website, ( we need something more convincing to verify your claim such as original image with Exif data, could you please explain more about yourself and your connection with this image, Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  07:28, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Hi MMXX, i am hobby gfx designer and have interest at Andres work - he confirmed at that I own all right, just check it, there is a personal message for you. this shoot was taken at the industry area of braunschweig (andres hometown). we used a really cheap digi cam, i guess 70€, nothing special. most after edits i do with photoshop. best, sky
Thank you very much for your swift reply, can you please tell me exactly where is his confirmation in his website, please give me exact link, also about camera type, nowadays almost all type of cameras can record Exif data, anyway it'll help a lot if you upload the original image as it is shot by camera, without any resize or edit, Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  09:01, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Hi MMXX, he posted ist on the news section , the camera doesnt exist anymore (cheap stuff doest exist too long ;>), when I am at home (back from the office) I will look on my CD-Rom backup where the original file is storaged! But thats all I can do. Andres confirmation and upload the original file if the CD-R still exist ;) . best sky

Hi MMXX, I had a hard time to get this CD-R up and runng BUUT finally with some effort here we go: , more original it cant be! ;-) best, sky

Dear Sky, thank you very much for your cooperation, I just saw the note on Andre Fedorow (Julian Styles), also thank you for providing original file. I have removed the "No source" tag from image, also I have copied the complete discussion from here to your talk page for the records. Best regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  20:26, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Comment by User:Angix

  • The photo Sine frontera foto band.jpg comes from my camera and my editing. Is the first time I post a photo in commons, so I'm sorry if there's something wrong.

Now I edit the permission in Public Domain, I hope this is enough. Thank's.

Dear user, welcome to Commons, I didn't saw your comment because you had posted it between all other comments, please don't worry about anything, here we have very simple rules, just don't upload any image that's doesn't belong to you like this one, also about this image (File:Sine frontera foto band.jpg) you need something to prove that you are the photographer or provide appropriate source information, please explain how did you take this picture and do you have any connection with Sine Frontera band, if this picture is published anywhere before please provide a link to that website, also please upload it's original high res. version. if you need any help please do not hesitate to ask me, Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  07:15, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
First of all, thank you for your patience. I am a component of this band, and for this reason almost all of these photos belongs to my girlfirend; the others are taken by friends. I asked them if should be a problem to post their photo in wikipedia and the answer was no.
A couple of this photos are posted also on Facebook profile, but you can view it only if you are a band's friend: in any case I must write the link to Facebook?
Others photos are posted in our site.
So, all photos can be downloaded in others site without any problem..
Now I'm proceeding to add photo information but.... In english? Or in italian? :)
I ask it to you because, as can you read, my english should be a little problem :))
thanks awfully, --Angix (talk) 08:20, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Dear Angix, first of all you should only upload the images which created by you or images which you have written permission from their authors,
If you are a member of "Sine Frontera" band you can send an email to OTRS ( using either one of these addresses ( or stating that "Sine Frontera" band is willing to release their images under one of accepted licenses in Commons, this way you can upload all the images which are available on this page or any other page of "Sine Frontera" official website. But still, you can not upload images which belongs to your friends or other persons without their permission, you have to do two things, first, upload the high resolution images, you can ask your friends to give you the original file (high resolution), second, if they have already published those images on any website like Facebook, ask them to write a small message with images stating that they have released those images under one of accepted licenses in Commons for example they can add this text to the image's notes "CC-BY-SA 3.0" which stands for Creative Commons Share-Alike 3.0, I will be happy if I can help you so do not hesitate to ask me any question that you have.   ■ MMXX  talk  23:43, 15 January 2010 (UTC)


I noticed your tagging of copyrights violations and no license/source/permission... I think administrator tools will be helpful for you and Commons. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:42, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your suggestion, I also think that admin tools can be very useful for me, since I spend most of my time here finding licensing and copyright problems, also I am planning to start translating templates and some other parts of Commons to Persian language and admin permission gives me access to many protected pages and templates, I am very honored and fortunate that you have asked me about this and actually I wished that somebody else propose and nominate me for adminship, so I would be very happy if you nominate me, thanks again.   ■ MMXX  talk  23:55, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Done. Please add confirmation and a little bit about yourself there. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:58, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Mmxx, congratulations! You now have administrator rights on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons on There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators:#wikimedia-commons-admin.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references.

Copyright violations?


Why do you keep flagging my files as "copyright violations?" My magazine, my photographs, my right to upload. Please explain?

Dear user, Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content, it is believed that copyright of images which you had uploaded recently belongs to publisher of HK Golfer magazine, if you are the publisher or someone who work for HK Golfer, please send an email to OTRS ( using HK Golfer official email address (, stating that you are willing to release these images under one of accepted licenses in Commons, I should warn you, if you release any image to public domain, anyone at anytime can use any part of this covers for any purpose, also if you upload any magazine cover again without permission, your account will be blocked. if you need any other help feel free to contact me, regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  23:03, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Dear Mmxx, I'm trying to understand your operating model here. If you believe someone is "violating" my copyright, why not write to ME and tell me so? Surely that should be your first response rather than to delete the files? You obviously know my official email address, so why not contact me first? I shall of course write to the address given, but you have put me to a significant amount of trouble, seemingly just because you felt like it and I'm not impressed. If what you are doing is the official approach (which I somehow doubt) then I suggest you put up instructions to publishers telling them that if they don't write to "", you will be deleting their images. However, as I said before, if you feel the need to do anything at all, I suggest you first write to the publisher rather than simply delete his work, issuing "warnings" and threatening to block accounts.

Dear user, who are you anyway? how should I know that your are the publisher or not? where did you mention your contact address? I will not send email to some publisher just because someone has stolen their materials (that's what I think), if I want do that, I must write dozens of emails every day. please spend some time and read our terms carefully, Commons:Licensing and Commons:Image casebook. anyway, you have only three choices, 1) send a permission to OTRS ( using HK Golfer official email address (, 2) if you are not publisher, send an email to ( and ask them for permission, 3) stop uploading these covers or your account will be blocked, this is not a threat, but just a warning, best regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  11:19, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Dear Mmxx. As I've stated several times now, I AM the publisher of this magazine. I have written to "" using "". You told me to do so. Now, knowing about "" and given your deep concern about my magazine, why didn't you write to me before? Instead, you deleted my work and threatened, sorry "warned", me. Ok, enough from me, I'll let you get back to monitoring pictures which you seem to be very keen on doing. Do me one favour: Check with "" before you destroy my work again. Thanks.

Ok, please first send the email, you should clearly say in your email that you are willing to release these images under mentioned license, then upload the files and add {{OTRSPending}} template to the image page.   ■ MMXX  talk  23:12, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

About the map[1]

Hi Mmxx. That's the one[2] and that's the other[3]. Both from Wikimedia. The work is entirely mine. Sorry if it was not clearly stated and thanks for inform me. Cheers, --Factuarius (talk) 04:52, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

File Tagging File:Wout-Brama.jpg

I do not know what you want me to do with File:Wout-Brama.jpg. It is a Photo of Wout-Brama which I took after a foorbalmatch against Ajax and I uploaded the file like I do all my files, I see no difference between Wout-Brama.jpg or Danijel-Pranjic.jpg‎.

It's probably a good idea to send a mail to OTRS confirming that your user account is held by the same person operating and to fill the author field with "Paul Blank (Commons user account: user:Paulblank)". Occasionally, users are not who they claim to be. ;) Paradoctor (talk) 10:16, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Unsourced File?

You've marked File:Luis Pereyra.jpg as unsourced. Could you please explain what kind of information is lacking? Greetings --Port(u*o)s (talk) 00:18, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Everything in the image made me to doubt the uploader's "Own work" claim, the crop, lack of EXIF, date, ... and also uploader's history, It doesn't looks like a self made image.   ■ MMXX  talk  00:29, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Could you please in future specify your critics. Your claim, that the file is unsourced, is obviously not true. It makes it more difficile to deal with those problems if you don't know what the critics is about. --Port(u*o)s (talk) 00:58, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Do you know source of this file? or do you know the uploader?? why do you think my claim is "obviously not true"? my experience tells me that it is not by uploader or at least I must doubt it, that's why I didn't speedy delete it, I was waiting for a reply from uploader, I'll change "no source" tag to a DR, you can say your opinion about it here.   ■ MMXX  talk  01:16, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I do know the uploader (the account of course), for she has asked on german wikipedia to get a mentor through the first struggles. Look, most newcomers which I had the chance to coach, feel very unfamiliar with image rights. And if you are stating facts they can't possibly comprehend (e.g. unsourced: the item «source» has clearly been filled in), it won't be easy to figure out what your boilerplate is meaning to them. I assume that my new mentee is quite confident that she «owns» all necessary rights if she is the owner of one (physical) image — at least if she had paid for it. For sure yuo could have speedy deleted the images (I don't know your rules for speedy deletion), but you would have put off a person willingly to contribute. --Port(u*o)s (talk) 10:28, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
P.S. Just know I've found a notice on our specific assistance page which I won't keep back from you:
«Nun noch eine Frage: wenn ich die von mir fälschlich hochgeladenen Fotos löschen möchte... muss ich das tun, oder erledigt sich das von selber (habe beim Arbeiten doch einige Fehler gemacht und Bilder hochgeladen, die ich erst einmal ansehen wollte....und zu spät all die Bedingungen verstanden. Hat es Konsequenzen, wenn ich sie nicht lösche? Ich habe nämlich nirgendwo finden können wie das geht..... oder kann ich irgendwo eine Entschuldigung loswerden? ich meine, man möchte ja gerne eine gute Arbeit leisten und nicht allen Leuten Probleme bereiten...»
Translation: Now another question: if I want to delete the photos I erroneously uploaded... do I have to do that, or will this matter settle itself (made a couple of mistakes in work, and uploaded images I wanted to have a look at first....und understood all the conditions too late. Will there be consequences if I don't delete them? Because I couldn't find how to delete them.... oder can I unload an apology somewhere? i mean, one wants to do quality work and not make problems for everyone...
I don't trust Babelfish. ;) Paradoctor (talk) 15:12, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the translation, I think it's a little bit late, but can you please explain to her that she can delete images by adding {{speedydelete|Write reason here}} to the images, Regards.   ■ MMXX  talk  22:51, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Dear User, I need to know what is the source of map that you used for this image.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:27, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
I scaned a magazine (newspaper) and I reworked the scan. Let- me know if it is accetable, If not, I will do differently. RegardsThcollet (talk) 12:29, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
It depend on the magazine, what magazine is it? anyway, generally magazines are not free, so you can't use that map.
There are many free maps in Commons, please use one of them, you can also use OpenStreetMap, please keep in mind that you should always mention your source with a link.

Dear Mmxx,

I made a mistake by not categorizing my pictures + I uploaded twice a same picture. It seems that you were having a doubt about the picture including F.Kristiansson and J.Chirac, do not be worried, it is a picture taken by me which has no copyright whatsoever

Best Regards, and sorry for the disturbance

Dear User, I would like to know what kind of camera did you use for taking this image?   ■ MMXX  talk  17:16, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Dear MMXX, I used a Canon EOS 5D, and that's why I uploaded the picture several times, because the quality was very high and the image was too big. I saw that it was deleted, so could you put it back please, because since I am the author of the image, and I know categorized it, I don't see any reason for its deletion. Though if you have any advice, I am open to suggestions. Best Regards,

Ministère de l'Education (talk) 11:51, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Dear MMXX,

Is that ok if i re-upload the image, this time by categorizing it better? Also, could you maybe give me a few advices on how to put a decent scale(that fits on a computer screen. Last but not least, I guess that you don't want to have 3times the same pictures with different scales and names, so how can I delete the former version on that same picture?

File:60GB PlayStation 3.gif

Hello, the imagine is made by myself with Paint and Photoshop. I also added permission licensing. Can you check it now, and delete the Media without a source tag? Thanks.

The image have been deleted already, but we can easily undo the deletion if you can prove that you are the photographer.   ■ MMXX  talk  04:01, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

OK, I will try prove you that the file is mine. The imagine was originally taken from (if you can see, is it a tag on the imagine.) Then I took the picture and saved it. After it, opened I Paint and removed the tag (you can see, the picture I uploaded was without a tag). Then I opened PS and began to fix a little on the colors. And thats all. If you still can not accept it, can I upload the picture as from somewhere else, source as and photographer as @2006 CNET Networks. Inc. (David Carnoy)?

Farsi help needed

I want to write article for Russian Wikipedia about this movie. Could you please help to find original Farsi title and article in Farsi Wikipedia if it exists? I also wonder what is meaning of Zemestan (place name?) and how correct English title? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:50, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

"Zemestan" is transliteration of Persian word for "Winter". according to article about main actress on Farsi Wikipedia, the Persian title of this movie should be "زمستان است" which means "It's winter", but it could also be Zemestan "زمستان" according to movie's poster. I couldn't find any reliable source in Persian for this movie.   ■ MMXX  talk  08:32, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
