Thanks for your message about url

I've not great experience but I immediately sent a email with the permission of the owner of the copyright.

I was undecided because the photographer is Dayan BUT the owner of copyright is David Pietroni and he sent me a mail that I forward at you need a copy? Thanks!

Dear user, thank you for your quick response, if you have already forwarded an email which meets the OTRS requirements to, you should also add {{OTRS pending}} template to the image page, you don't have to send me the email. for more information please read OTRS.   ■ MMXX  talk  12:38, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of Chrome_OS_Mario_Beta.png

Can you please revert this i have done nothing wrong as all i did was upload a new version of ChromeOS.jpg, it is the same Operating system released by the same company under the same licence displaying the same applications.Chrome OS is free software released under a modified version of the Berkley software distribution licence. If it is in fact copyrighted please take action on ChromeOS.jpg since it is identical and let me know, i will put the screenshot on English Wikipedia non-free.

Dear user, thank you for noticing me about that file, I have removed that file too for the same reason as your file, although screenshot of Google Chrome OS can be used under GNU and BSD licenses, however your image contain non-free copyrighted logos, please upload it directly to English Wikipedia, thank you.   ■ MMXX  talk  17:53, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

copyright for RADAR shot off my computer

Intellicast clearly states on their site the information is public access free for use and distribution.

I personally took that screenshot from live CONUS radar, and is from my blog.

it is mine in the sense that I captured the live shot from radar.. there is no copyright on public radar images provided by the us government weather satellites. yes the shot came THROUGH intellicast, but they are mirroring the US government CONUS radar, therefore free for public use, dissemination, and repost for the purpose of scientific discussion and education per fair use.

cheers mate


Dear user, please read intellicast's terms of use, whatever you copy from them does belong to them and protected by copyright law.   ■ MMXX  talk  06:36, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I haven't experience with files, is wright my upload now? Leandro LV (talk) 23:06, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

I've made new version. Leandro LV (talk) 04:24, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Dear user, we need to know what is the source of this image? did you take this image by yourself? if yes, how? you have added my "webcam/my files" as the source, please explain what does it mean and how did you take this image.   ■ MMXX  talk  08:34, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Is it correct now? My english is more or less. Leandro LV (talk) 12:46, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Daer user, may I ask what kind of camera did you use?   ■ MMXX  talk  12:49, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Well, I use an smartphone Nokya with 2mp. Leandro LV (talk) 13:02, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Which Nokia phone?! is this the original image? have you done anything to the image? e.g. retouching or cropping?
Please upload the original file with metadata so I could verify that you are the author.
Thank you.   ■ MMXX  talk  13:17, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, all my photos are in jpg format, I do not keep any files exif. Is it a problem? Leandro LV (talk) 14:24, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Daer user, cameras or smartphones recorded EXIF metadata into the JPG file itself, as metadata is very usual thing and nowadays even simple phones or cameras are able to record metadata, your only way to prove you own this file is to upload the original file which shows this image is created by a Nokia smartphone otherwise the image will be deleted on the mentioned date in file page, also please let me know what Nokia phone did you use.   ■ MMXX  talk  14:50, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Ah, so esif is a tag, but I have all the photos automatically converted to jpg and uploaded to websites and Facebook. Anyway, I guess I better get a professional photo with all the formalities, Wikipedia's bureaucracy is too big when it comes to images. Thanks for your help. Leandro LV (talk) 18:44, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Dear user, all I'm saying is upload the original image if you have it, without doing any converting or edit on it, also as far as I know all smartphones only shoot in JPG format.   ■ MMXX  talk  09:01, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

I reverted your addition of a "no source" template to File:Tikal1234.jpg. I don't understand how a file described with "Photo by User:Infrogmation" can be described as "no source". Infrogmation (talk) 21:50, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Did you take the picture by yourself back in 70s? please explain more about this image.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:55, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I did, as the description already says, I thought with no ambiguity whatsoever. If I am incorrect, please suggest better wording. As to "explain more", sure, though I have no idea what this has to do with sourcing. My family and I flew from Guatemala City to the Tikal airport on a day trip. I climbed up Temple 1, and snapped this photo with my pocket Kodak Instamatic. Is that what you wanted to know? Puzzled, Infrogmation (talk) 22:01, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Alright, I just wanted to be sure that this is a scan of your own work and it's not taken from a book or something like that, thanks for your explanation.   ■ MMXX  talk  22:08, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Yep. I uploaded it to Wikipedia back in the pre-thumbnail era (first illustration of the Tikal article, if I remember correctly). I know it's low res, but somewhat to my surprise we seem not to have gotten any better free licensed pix from the same viewpoint since. By the way, if you have questions about images especially those from long established contributors, I'd like to suggest you ASK them on their talk page first, rather than slap a "no source" template on images with an an image such as this. My photo still looks to me to have a VERY SPECIFIC SOURCE VERY CLEARLY INDICATED. I still don't understand what you find problematic about the source text; if there is something specific you think I did wrong or something you think that could be worded better, please suggest. Thank you for your attention. Cheers, Infrogmation (talk) 23:12, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
I just checked your account Face-smile.svg I believe it is your own work, maybe it would be helpful for other reviewers to explain on the image page that it is a scan from your own work.   ■ MMXX  talk  17:37, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
How about I copy this discussion to the image talk page? I'm sorry, I'm assuming good faith from you, but I fear I'm still not clear what you see is the problem is. Is the issue that it was scanned? Scanning is, I believe the usual way non-digital photos are turned into digital images. All my photos before 2003, and the majority until October 2005, were done on film. I still fail to see what is unclear about "photo by (my name)". How would you suggest wording it? Thanks. Infrogmation (talk) 18:13, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
Well, scans are difficult to say whether they are by uploader or not, in your case I only trust you based on your works in Commons, also please stop reverting my edits, this and this image are suspicious for being copyvio and just saying "own work" is not acceptable at all! if you believe they are works by uploader please mention your reasons on uploaders talk page or on the file page.   ■ MMXX  talk  18:23, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
After trying to figure out why you would put "no source" on an accurately and specifically sourced image without success, I checked some of your other edits. I saw you putting the same template on a couple of images where the uploader gave the source as own work, and briefly thought you were doing some sort of vandalism before I looked in more detail at your works. That was the reason for those reverts. You may be correct that some of the images may be copyright violations and the uploaders lying -- tagging such as "no source" rather than listing for deletion seems to me a bit of a cheat which I am not comfortable with. In any case, I still think it was completely inappropriate in the case of my image. Perhaps we can call in some disinterested third party or parties to comment and offer suggestions so we can avoid such friction in the future? Thanks. Cheers, Infrogmation (talk) 22:34, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
I don't think we need to talk more about this, this could be prevented by checking the users history before tagging Face-smile.svg when I first saw your image, the way you didn't use any information template made me think that you are a new user uploading scans from some book...   ■ MMXX  talk  19:30, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
(unindent) No template because it was uploaded to Commons before Commons had templates. (I and others have added templates to hundreds of my images uploaded in the pre-template era, but there are thousands more.) Looking at the date it was uploaded here is a good clue for such situations. Thanks for your attention. Cheers, Infrogmation (talk) 16:37, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Cover of book-CD

As a member of the production team for "Η Μαγική Φλογέρα", I have permission to use the file File:Η Μαγική Φλογέρα.png. Please advise.

Dear user, you can send an email with clear permission to use this file to, for more information please see OTRS.   ■ MMXX  talk  17:21, 7 May 2011 (UTC)


You deleted the above mentioned file; reason: no source; could you please restore the file; there is still OTRS pending and the question of the source is under investigation; for your information: the person who has questioned the source is a known trouble maker and blocked for several times. The picture is more than 30 years old and has been published in Iran; means it is PD-Iran. --Wvk (talk) 07:26, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Sorry but I won't restore the file unless you provide reliable source information, the mentioned source on the file page was "transfered from Wapedia Farsi; this file is from a private collection" which is not acceptable, I know about Iran's copyright law and it is clear that this image is more than 30 years old, however the file source information says it's from a "private collection" so it might be possible that this file has not been published before. you should bring an evidence that proves this image has been published 30 years ago.   ■ MMXX  talk  17:15, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
This file had actually been uploaded as Farah Diba.jpg. Unfortunately this file has been deleted, means that the original information about the uploader and the source is no more available. May be you can restore the file or the history of this file that I can write to the original uploader an get comprehensiv information about the source and publishing date. --Wvk (talk) 20:43, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
There is not any information about the uploader at enwiki in file history, there is only User:Bellavista1957 who is uploader in Commons and file history shows the uploader was aware about the problem, I can restore this image if you could find any image of magazine or newspaper that shows this image is published 70 years ago.   ■ MMXX  talk  19:41, 8 May 2011 (UTC)


Hi, why you deleted File:REifeil (6).JPG and File:Musée du Louvre r (3).JPG. i took both of them by my camera. it is not form web or any other places.Reza1615 (talk) 14:49, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Dear Reza, France has no freedom of panorama, the architect of the Louvre Pyramid is still alive so it is protected by copyright, also the company operating the Eiffel Tower owns copyright of images of the tower when lighted at night. for more information please see COM:L#France and COM:FOP#France.   ■ MMXX  talk  18:25, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

A question about images

I'm bringing this to you because 1] you're an admin 2) your nick was on the village pump page 3) I don't know where else to ask. File:Lightmatter peacock tailfeathers closeup.jpg has author as Aaron Logan and provides source however, File:Peacock_tailfeathers_(revised_again).jpg has author as self, while File:Peacock_tailfeathers_(revised).jpg provides nothing. Where is the proper place to bringing this to the attention of people who make these decisions? Thanks ·· —N·M— talk ·· 06:12, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi, it is clear that File:Peacock tailfeathers (revised).jpg and File:Peacock tailfeathers (revised again).jpg are derivative works of File:Lightmatter peacock tailfeathers closeup.jpg, User:RyGuy17 edited the original image to candidate it as featured picture at enwiki, the licensing is correct, however correct source information should be added to the derivative works.   ■ MMXX  talk  17:09, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Fair use allows derivatives from copyrighted material: parodies, Warhol's Campbell Soups [1], etc. Please restore the file realmen.jpg, which you deleted. Mindbunny (talk) 17:09, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Comment by User:Westwood1984

Thanks for your message about File:Hadley20.jpg, I took the photo and uploaded it, so I wasn't sure on the copyright tag, I tried to add the appropriate tag, I hope this will help. Also, all license information is listed in information settings, as we released all images and content on at bottom of page and we had Hadley email permission to, we can reforward if you like. Please email for needed info Westwood1984 (talk) 21:24, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Dear user, Tabriz Hotel Pars building is a new building, probably less than 20 years old which is still protected by copyright law and all it's rights belongs to the hotel or it's architects. but, the Tabriz municipality building was built in 1934 as the Tabriz municipality central office, being owned by municipality (a juridical personality or legal person) makes it eligible for {{PD-Iran}} license. for more information please see Commons:Licensing#Iran and Commons:Freedom of panorama#Iran.   ■ MMXX  talk  08:36, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

I am a representative for Roosevelt "Roe" Williams and just recently I posted a picture to his Wikipedia page and now it has been deleted by you (Mmxx). Can you tell me how can I get permission to post that pic. I got the pic from by Scott Boehm/Getty Images which is open to the public. If possible can you post the pic since your more knowledgeable of the process? Thanks for your time and understanding, just trying to get this figured out.

گرم‌ترین درودها بر شما باد.

بنرهای طراحی شده توسط شما را در ویکی‌انگلیسی دیدم و از آن‌جا که کاربر فارسی‌زبان دیگری که بنر طراحی کند را نمی‌شناختم و خود نیز چیزی از فتوشاپ و امثالهم سر در نمی‌آورم، مزاحم شما شدم تا یک بنر برای ویکی‌پروژهٔ خودآموزها و راهنماها طراحی کنید.

ترجیحا از رنگ‌های زرد و قرمز و نارنجی (تو همین مایه‌ها) استفاده کنید. یک تصویر متناسب با موضوع پروژه انتخاب کنید و به کار گیرید (شما با تصاویر انبار آشنایی کافی دارید و بهتر می‌دانید به کجای انبار بروید. موضوع تصویر آموزش و تعلیم و ... باشد). نوشته‌های بنر نیز جملاتی از این قبیل باشد: «از این‌که به دیگران کمک کنید، احساس خوبی به شما دست می دهد؟» و «وپ:کمک در فهرست پی‌گیری‌های شما هم هست؟» «پس معطل نکنید» «به ویکی‌پروژهٔ خودآموزها و راهنماها بپیوندید» این جملاتی بود که به ذهن من رسید. احتمالا جملاتی زیباتر و جاذب‌تر با قالب‌بندی بهتر به ذهن شما می‌رسد که در این‌صورت جایگزینش کنید. فونت ساده، بزرگ و ضخیم باشد (در کل بنرهای ۶۳ و ۶۶ را خیلی دوست دارم)

با سپاس فراوان

ارادتمند --Persian Americophile (talk) 04:14, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi dear Mmxx. I have a question. Please take a look at this. I took it from Tehran museum of contemporary art. Doesn't it have copyright problem? --Ayda (talk) 07:46, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately Iran's copyright law does not mention any exception about works which are placed in public places, so such works remain protected by the law. I'm not sure who's the author and copyright owner of that art work, but it seems to be a new work with less than 30 years old, if that's the case, it is protected and it should be deleted from Commons.   ■ MMXX  talk  10:31, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
OK. So please delete that file and this. And excuse me, what about buildings have like this arts? --Ayda (talk) 11:11, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

So, please, and in a civic way, as you claim, give your opinion about sourcing, then your advices will be followed.

MMXX, further to above please see this denial of my undelete request. Apparently I must convince you that these pictures are my own work. Well, they are scans of paper photograph prints from my personal photograph album taken by me in the years indicated in the file names, and with the permission of the individuals pictured. The camera is long since gone, but it was 35mm film, likely Kodachrome. Not sure what else I can add! Could you undo your deletions, please? ServiceAT (talk) 21:08, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

re photo: Rick Hayes-Roth

Hello Mmxx,

You're marked as the deleter of the image Rick_Hayes-Roth.jpg. I'd uploaded this file. The talk page says it was deleted because:

A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Rick Hayes-Roth.jpg, is missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status.

The image came from Rick Hayes-Roth, the work of a government photographer. It's therefore public domain, but I guess my attempts to get this across in the copyright statement were unclear. Would you please help me figure out how to tag it properly, so that I can use it on Wikipedia?

Thanks much for your help,

Ryandake (talk)

Dear user, just saying that this is work of "US Government/DoD" is not enough, you should provide a verifiable and reliable link for the image to an official US government website, if the image doesn't exist on the web, you can also ask the subject or the author (US Department of Defense ?) to send us a written permission to OTRS at ( using an official and verifiable email address. then you may upload the image and add {{OTRS pending}} template to the file page, later an OTRS member will check and verify your permission.   ■ MMXX  talk  09:08, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

please be more careful

You placed a {{no source since}} tag on File:Эрика.jpg even though it already had an {{own}} tag on it.

I think if you had a reason to doubt the uploader you should have initiated Commons:Deletion requests/File:Эрика.jpg yourself, explaining your doubts. Geo Swan (talk) 15:00, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

I'm careful, thank you, I'll use this or similar tags when I doubt the claimed source, adding {{own}} template doesn't always mean that the file is truly owned by uploader.   ■ MMXX  talk  15:43, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
While I am relieved to learn you noticed the own template, and thought you had a reason for doubting it was legitimate, why should your doubts not have triggered you to initiate Commons:Deletion requests/File:Эрика.jpg yourself... Geo Swan (talk) 16:15, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Because opening a DR for every single suspicious image is an unnecessary load for deletion requests.   ■ MMXX  talk  16:24, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
When instantiated the {{no source since}} tag tells uploaders that if the image is their own work they should place an {{own}} tag on it. So, how is an uploader supposed to interpret the tag if they have already placed an {{own}} tag on it? Are they supposed to interpret it as meaning that the tag placer is accusing them of lying?
Sorry, I think it is clear here you chose to place an inappropriate tag -- a tag only appropriate for images that do not already have an {{own}} tag on it. So, sorry, but I continue to believe you should be more careful to use tags as they are meant to be used. Geo Swan (talk) 07:55, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay, I just noticed your comment. this have been discussed many times in Commons, as I said {{own}} doesn't always means that the file is truly owned by uploader. the {{nsd}} is simply asking them to provide the true source, for example in case they have added the {{own}} mistakenly by choosing "It is entirely my own work" link from the upload form. so it's not an accusation but only a notice for uploaders to correct themselves.   ■ MMXX  talk  22:09, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

New delete notice on issue I thought was resolved earlier

In June I uploaded numerous images that I had produced to illustrate my articles, and received numerous notices of not declaring sources, although I had clearly said the work was mine.

I thought I had answered you to your satisfaction. I explained my graphics training and provided examples on my profile and I uploaded many of the original photos to show where I derived the posterized images.

However two images I allowed to be deleted as I could not find where I had downloaded them: Vikings and Champrepus. The second was photographed by me on the wall in the city hall, since the subject died over a hundred years ago I thought it was okay to say it was my work. I let it go.

However, a number of other images are listed on my talk page as scheduled for deleting based on your note made in June, but no threat is highlighted on my galleries. Several images needed categories, but most do not, I have found, even though the notice says I have no categories.

I have since uploaded numerous more images and most have been Photoshopped by me, and I have received no notices of deletion.

Is the reason that the image deletion notice has returned is because it automatically returns if not released by you or another administrator? If you could someone release me from the purgatory of suspicion.

Thanks for your response to this Mlane 19:35, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

First could you please explain that what do you mean by saying "I could not find where I had downloaded them"?
About the notices on your talk page, the notices which requiring source information are not effective because you have removed the tags from the file page, but there is also a notice to categorize images, which is not a deletion warning, you have to categorize your files, for more information please see Commons:Categories.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:24, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your quick response. the sentense"I could not...." meant that I found the original image by google image search "viking reenactments" or "norman costumes" several years ago and could not find the images by similar searches. I did find very similar images by the same photographer(I recognized the images, same people, same costumes, same event, same sensitivities) on wikicommons but the photographer had not donated that image. I decided to allow it to be deleted. when I was a professional graphic designer we often took photos of others and heavily altered them as I did here, and that was considered allowable but I understand the interdiction here.

I have returned to all the images and added categories. Several that I created don't seem to function anymore i.e. rural France(someone redirected to Countryside in France, which is acceptable to me)but all the categories provided by wikicommons were extremely specific, ie specific chateau, or too general so I added general categories such as Chateaux in France, which I found more useful. I hope this answers your concerns.Mlane 08:26, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

مجوز نشر

سلام می خواستم در انبار کمکم کنید تصاویری که در انبار اپلود کردم همه از کارهای خودم هستند گالری من به جز قسمت photographers

که تصاویر متعلق به دوستام هستند و برام میل کردن و اجازه گرفتم ازشون برای استفاده در ویکی پدیا ولی در اینجا همه برچسب حذف خوردن می خواستم بهم کمک کنید یا راهنمایی کنید ممنون اهورا

اهورا عزیز، لطفاً دقت کنید که شما برای بارگذاری آثار دیگران باید اجازه‌نامه کتبی داشته‌باشید و همچنین آن را به OTRS ارسال کنید. خصوصاً در مورد آثاری که پیش از این در جایی دیگر منتشر شده‌اند، مانند Mahdi Kalhor و Reza Hajipour، توجه کنید که باید منبع و پدید‌آورنده هر تصویر را به درستی ذکر کنید، File:Mcdo.jpg را شما تهیه نکرده‌اید: File:Albert Einstein at the age of three (1882).jpg، البته اطلاعات و منبع هم برای آن ذکر نشده‌است، لطفاً اطلاعات صحیح منبع و پدید‌آورنده را به تمام پرونده‌ها اضافه کنید و از الگوی {{own}} تنها زمانی استفاده کنید که شما پدید‌آورنده اثر هستید، همچنین در صفحه کاربری خود فهرستی از دوربین‌هایی را که شما استفاده کرده‌اید بنویسید تا کار بررسی برای سایر مدیران نیز آسان شود، با تشکر.   ■ MMXX  talk  21:37, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
در مورد مجسمه‌ها لطفاً توجه کنید که ما به اطلاعات کامل در مورد پدیدآورنده، مالک و شرایط مالکیت آنها نیاز داریم.   ■ MMXX  talk  23:22, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
اره قبول اون چندتا رو از روی نااگاهی از شرایط انبار اپلود کردم فقط اگه میشه اون دوتا نگاره ای که حذف شدن رو برگردونیداگه تصاویر اقای حاجی پور و کلهر رو ببینید توی پانو می بیند که کادر دارن و یا اسمشون زیر تصویر هست ولی اینا اصل تصویر هستند ،من نمی دونم چه طور باید از اون مجوز استفاده کنم ؟!بعد از اپلود میشه ویرایش کرد و ایمل و ادرس اصلی اثر رو اضافه کرد ؟ اهورا
توضیحات شما را در صفحه درخواست حذف دیدم و پاسخ شما را در اینجا خواهم داد.
اول در مورد مجسمه‌ها باید بگویم که ایران قانونی مبنی بر آزادی تصویرسازی از آثاری که به طور دائمی در اماکن عمومی قرار گرفته‌اند ندارد و چنین آثاری شامل شرایط عادی حق تکثیر می‌شوند، مانند تاریخ مرگ پدید‌آورنده، یا نوع مالک آن (حقیقی یا حقوقی} و تاریخ عرضه. با توجه به این موضوع تصاویر مجسمه‌ها درصورت نداشتن اطلاعات دقیق، حذف خواهند شد.
در مورد تصاویری که در پانورامیو هم منتشر شده‌اند دو کار می‌توانید انجام دهید: از Reza Hajipour و Mahdi Kalhor درخواست کنید تا جواز آثار خود در پانورامیو را تغییر دهند و از جوازی آزاد استفاده کنند، همچنین می‌توانید از آنها درخواست کنید تا با استفاده از ای‌میل ذکر شده یک اجازه‌نامه به OTRS به آدرس ارسال کنند و تایید کنند که شما اجاره دارید آثار آنها را تحت جوازی آزاد و به منظور هر استفاده‌ای منتشر کنید.
تصاویر حذف شده بعد از تایید اجازه‌نامه احیا خواهد شد.   ■ MMXX  talk  11:01, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
پانورامیو مانند فیلکر انتخاب نوع مجوز نداره متاسفانه، در ایمیل ارسالی توسط صاحب نگاره به اون ادرس باید چه چیزهایی باشه ؟ آیا باید برای هر نگاره یک ایمیل ارسال کنند ؟ به هر زبانی میشه یا باید به انگلیسی باشه ؟ و بعد از ارسال ایمیل من باید چه کار کنم؟! ایا خود ویکی انبار مشکل نگارها رو حل می کنه؟اگه میشه نمونه ای از متن ارسالی رو برام بفرستید ahura (talk) 12:36, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
تا جایی که می‌دانم در پانورامیو هم مانند فلیکر امکان انتخاب نوع جواز وجود دارد، ولی مطمئن نیستم که تغییر آن بعداً امکان دارد یا خیر، در هر صورت روش آسان‌تر ذکر جواز در خود پانورامیو است، این می‌تواند در پروفایل کاربر پانورامیو نیز ذکر شود، در مورد ایمیل هم می‌توانید به فارسی یا ترجیحاً به انگلیسی به ارسال کنید، اجازه‌نامه باید به وضوح مشخص کند که کدام آثار تحت په جوازی قابل انتشار می‌باشند، فهرست جوازهای پذیرفته‌شده در انبار را می‌توانید اینجا ببینید: Commons:Copyright_tags#Free_Creative_Commons_licenses
فکر می‌کنم جوازی مانند Cc by sa 3.0 یا Cc by 3.0 مناسب باشد. نمونه‌ای از یک اجازه‌نامه مناسب به انگلیسی در اینجا موجود است، اگر دوستان شما مایل به انتشار آزاد تمام آثار خود هستند کافی است همین را همراه با یک لینک به صفحه گالری خود ذکر کنند، اگر تنها مایل به انتشار برخی از آثار هستند باید هر اثر جداگانه لینک داشته‌باشد و در اجازه‌نامه ذکر کنند که آثار ذکر شده می‌توانند تحت جواز ... به آزادی و به هر منظوری استفاده‌شوند.

Hi, can you take a look at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Ahura21 ? Thanks. --Jklamo (talk) 21:26, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

User Z interactive

I saw you posted some notices for lacking copyrights on User:Z interactive's photos. I have noticed a number of other problematic ones, such as this one (most likely taken by AHG, a German dealership - it uses the same background as their other photos), this Chrysler taken at the 2011 NAIAS (was he really in Detroit as well?). He was also in Detroit in 2003, it seems: File:Bmw xActivity.jpg (other photo). The frequency of copyright concerns with his photos, as well as the complete absence of response to concerns leads me to doubt the majority of this user's contributions. Perhaps we should take this to a higher level? Mr.choppers (talk) 02:57, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

You are right, but some of images might also be their own work, I'll open a deletion request for specious ones.   ■ MMXX  talk  11:06, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I've applied a fully bot automated moving - suggested by a template - to these images


Original uploader (also the creator) is en:User:Wiggy! and gave CC as you can see by the history [2] [3]

Let me know. ZipoBibrok5x10^8 (talk) 17:40, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

File:NE forgesu.jpg

You have marked File:NE forgesu.jpg as missing a source, while source has been clearly indicated as "own work" by a standard template since the beginning, plus the uploader/author (it's the same person) has appropriately released the image under a CC-BY-SA licence. In which way do you suggest the source information yet needs to be improved? Marek BLAHUŠ (talk) 21:58, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

The image is already published elsewhere on the web:   ■ MMXX  talk  22:00, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Indeed. And if you go to (which is the website of the event to which it relates) you may see Andreo Jankovskij listed as the webmaster and contact person in the left menu. I was not aware it was published elsewhere, still I suppose the creator has simply uploaded it from his own computer, without any direct relation to that website. After all, the instructions at Commons:Licensing to which you have pointed by means of the template explicity state that "The Source of the material[:] If the uploader is the author, this should be stated explicitly. (e.g. "Created by uploader", "Self-made", "Own work", etc.) Otherwise, please include a web link or a complete citation if possible." (emphasis is mine). What do you suggest me/him to do now? I think the link would be superfluous because he himself is the author. And we have his CC-release statement (provided during upload). If you still suspect it could be a copyvio, I think I could even tell him to add some kind of license statement next to the image where it is currently being used on the web. However, the only page I can find at the moment is which is a discussion board where he (again under his full name and photo) has put a link to it - so this does not feel like a place where it would be easy/worth placing a CC license statement. Marek BLAHUŠ (talk) 22:17, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
I've changed the 'no source' tag to a deletion request, please see my explanation there.   ■ MMXX  talk  22:31, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for raising attention to the background image. The uploader could indeed not prove its source and preferred to replace it by a trivial design of his own. He has uploaded it over the old image so that the new version is now present under the old name. Do you agree with me that this makes the reasons behind the deletion request void? Or is there still something to do? Marek BLAHUŠ (talk) 10:56, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello, thank you for your notice about the missing source of File:Mary Katrantzou.jpg. I copied this file from the following webpage: where I cannot find the author of this photograph. It is also available at several other sources (google pictures). Can you help? Thank you! -- 21:19, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

You can't upload a picture from random websites to Commons, this should be deleted because it's author is unknown and you don't have any permission t use it. to learn more about Wikimedia Commons and our policy, please see Commons:Image casebook and Commons:Licensing.  ■ MMXX  talk 21:31, 26 August 2011 (UTC)


Hello Mmxx, You left a message at my talk page, saying it didn't have a link to the source and it didn't had the license, but there are both things in the file. The image comes from the chamber of congressmen of argentina which publishes its images at public domain, and in here, in commons, it has a special template for images taken from there.

Adding a MyUploads Link next to MyContribs - further reading


if you could translate the following two strings to your native language:

, I would be very pleased.

(please change fr to fa on the first string) Thanks. BTW, what's with the translation of AjaxQuickDelete? Can I do something? -- RE rillke questions? 18:56, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for letting me know, I've corrected my mistake :) about AjaxQuickDelete, truth is I forgot to fix it, I'll try to translate it soon.  ■ MMXX  talk 19:02, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
I changed the last code at User talk:Rillke/Discuss/2011#MediaWiki:AjaxQuickDelete.js. Now it displays all messages and additionally it adds a RTL style to the dialog. Is there still something wrong with it? -- RE rillke questions? 19:42, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Problem is integration of rtl and ltr characters together and they doesn't show correctly, please see this edit (and page's history), it seems this is what I should do.  ■ MMXX  talk 19:56, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Can you tell me, which one are now displaying right? If you want, I can escape all strings. Thanks. -- RE rillke questions? 22:16, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
I've tested the code again, please see these screenshots:
I've also escaped some characters with Unicode literals but it didn't fix anything, I'm thinking to only translate some parts and leave the messages with mixed characters in English.  ■ MMXX  talk 14:27, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

I think it would be better if you translate all messages and just leave out the variables. It works even without them. When ready, I have to ask DieBuche what's the best way to add the rtl style to the script. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 17:40, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

What do you mean? if I remove the variables how does the script's messages mention the namespace? I can also replace "wgCanonicalNamespace.toLowerCase" with "page", it doesn't have to be specific for different pages. by the way, I tested the script many times but it doesn't notify me, what is the problem? also I have replaced {{delete}} in the messages with "الگوی حذف" which means "delete template".  ■ MMXX  talk 17:59, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
It seems the script won't notify myself but it works with other users!  ■ MMXX  talk 18:05, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, there is a line of code which prevents notifying yourself. Just choose a generic formulation for what the script currently does. It is not really important to see for 1/10s which uploader has been notified and if you are on a file page, it should be clear to the user that the template won't be added to a gallery page. -- RE rillke questions? 18:42, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
And concerning the "delete - template": You can create a redirect in template namespace making everything easier for users speaking Persian. -- RE rillke questions? 18:46, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
I fixed the translation as you suggested, it's much better now. is there a way to test listUploaders and notifyUploaders messages without bothering other users?  ■ MMXX  talk 20:10, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

To test, insert this in some js in your usernamespace and hit preview:

function setI18n() {
   // Translatable strings
   AjaxQuickDelete.i18n = {
genericFailure: "در زمان انجام عمل درخواست‌شده یک خطا رخ داد. ",
      errorDetails: "توضیح خطا با جزئیات در پایین نمایش داده‌شده‌ است. ",
      errorReport: "خطا‌ را اینجا گزارش دهید",
      taskFailure: {
         listUploaders: "یک خطا رخ داد در زمان تعیین " 
          + (6 == wgNamespaceNumber ? " بارگذارنده(های) پرونده" : "سازنده این صفحه") + ".",
         notifyUploaders: "یک خطا رخ داد در زمان اطلاع‌رسانی به " 
         + (6 == wgNamespaceNumber ? " بارگذارنده(های) پرونده" : "سازنده این صفحه") + "."
   window.setTimeout(testError, 50);
if (!window.AjaxDeleteOptOut && wgNamespaceNumber > -1) {
function testError() {
	var timeout = 0;
	var strs = [];
	var cus = 0;
	for (x in AjaxQuickDelete.i18n.taskFailure) {
		setTimeout( function () { 
			AjaxQuickDelete.currentTask = strs[cus];
			cus++;"some error in english. e.g. xy is not a function");
		}, timeout);
   window.setTimeout(rmMessages, timeout+2000);
function rmMessages() {
window.setTimeout( function () { $('.ajaxDeleteFeedback').css("direction", "rtl") }, 500);

You can remove the last line to see how it looks without rtl style applyed. -- RE rillke questions? 20:24, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, it works correctly, I tested those messages while deleting this user's image too :) how can I add the rtl style to the translation?  ■ MMXX  talk 20:48, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Add the following line:
appendCSS('.ajaxDeleteFeedback { direction:rtl; }');
at the bottom (outside the last bracket.) to your common.js -- RE rillke questions? 21:42, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Will that work on MediaWiki:AjaxQuickDelete.js/fa too?  ■ MMXX  talk 12:07, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
If it is outside of the last bracket, yes. It (appendCSS) adds a style definition to the page you are visiting. -- RE rillke questions? 12:14, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
I created the translation, thank you very much for your help.  ■ MMXX  talk 12:48, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

I've tagged your image because license on the Mises Institute website and the source is not very clear, however I also find that the book is actually published under CC-BY, I've removed the tag and added and additional source for the reference.  ■ MMXX  talk 12:37, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
The cover image is clearly labeled as CC-BY-3.0 on the Picasa page, AS I ORIGINALLY LINKED TO. I do not understand what the license on the Mises Insitute website has to do with the license for the book cover image. Wikimedia Commons guidelines themselves include recognition that Picasa images are clearly identified with their license. As an admin I would think you would be aware of this and would have the sense to at least click the source link provided, before just tagging images with false claims of missing permission. --JohnDoe0007 (talk) 08:03, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
It's ok now as I saw the license inside the book, but neither information on Picasa nor Mises Institute was convincing for me. perhaps it would be more helpful if Mises institute add a clear ToS to their website explaining what is exactly published under CC-BY.  ■ MMXX  talk 20:59, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
If the Picasa label is not "convincing", why is there an entire article teaching Commons users how to search the Picasa database for images labeled as cc-by-3.0 and cc-by-sa-3.0 specifically for the purpose of uploading to the Commons? Why does the Commons not only instruct users on how to do this, but advertise a tool to help facilitate this? --JohnDoe0007 (talk) 09:56, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Not being convincing for an editor doesn't mean the guidelines are not correct, COM:PICASA is generally useable. I just doubted the license because of nature the uploaded file and the unclear license on the publisher's website.  ■ MMXX  talk 18:15, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
Again, what is one supposed to do then? The guidelines essentially state that Picasa licenses are valid (and can even be verified by a bot). How can the license stated on Picasa, as uploaded and labeled by the copyright holder, be not "convincing", yet apparently the guidelines say exactly that is enough of a verification? And if you are disputing the Wikimedia Commons guidelines, can you please tell me where other guidelines that supersede those at COM:PICASA are located? I am curious to know how the copyright status of an image, uploaded by the copyright holder and clearly labeled with the corresponding license can be made any more clear. --JohnDoe0007 (talk) 12:29, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Please notice that Picasa licenses are not necessarily true or dependable. I didn't think it was license laundering case, but I doubted the license on Picasa because it was cover of a book which were available on many online bookshops, if I wasn't able to find any explanations of terms of CC-BY on the Mises institute website or inside the book itself (as I did), I would ask the uploader to provide it.  ■ MMXX  talk 22:37, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

That doesn't make any sense. If you believed the copyright holder was the one who uploaded the image and declared the license he wished to use, what else is there? You literally just said you believed the copyright holder declared a license for his own image, and then said "If I didn't find something else that is completely unnecessary, I would have asked the copyright holder to declare a license for his own image that I believe he uploaded and declared a license for. --JohnDoe0007 (talk) 18:02, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for the long delay, I just noticed your comment! by "uploader" I meant you, the Commons' user. as I said if I wasn't able to find any explanations of terms of CC-BY on the Mises institute website (like this), you had to provide a confirmation of the license, by contacting Mises institute (not the Picasa uploader).  ■ MMXX  talk 14:14, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Some Questions and Requests

Hi MMXX, This image is not available on flickr despite the fact that my SafeSearch feature is off. Google search shows no higher resolution version of this image, so I think it's NOT a copyvio but still I don't know what exactly to do? Nominate it for deletion due to lack of source or let it to continue its life on Commons!?
Do you think that these images (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) must be deleted because of lack of FOP in Iran? Definitely none of them are old enough to be in public domain. If your answer is yes, please delete them.
You may know that both flickr and Commons are filtered in Iran, so I use Tor to bypass filtering to review licenses. Could you please make me exampt from IP block to be able to edit on Commons via Tor? Thanks in advance. AMERICOPHILE 01:55, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Americophile, if a file has source problem, we will never "let it to continue its life on Commons" :) you should contact it's uploader to clarify the source information, you don't have to open a DR though, you can simply tag it with {{nsd}} and don't forget to leave a note for it's uplader too. to tag files and notify users easily, you could enable the "Quick Delete" from Special:Preferences,
I've deleted images of Pearl Monument's models, but other photos might could be saved, how old is this building? IUST is an governmental university and if it's more than 30 years old, then it's in public domain, also this and this might be de minimis, you can open a DR to hear other opinions too.
Unfortunately, at this time, I can not exempt you from IP blocking, considering that you are currently blocked in for misusing multiple accounts, however I'm not completely aware of the situation in, I suggest you to ask User:Mardetanha or email your request to info-commons @  ■ MMXX  talk 15:09, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Former Iranian Shah

Hi Mmxx, there's a category on Commons named after w:Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, last Iranian king. User:Bellavista1957 created a new category and named it Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi that is the same person but has a royalty title (I know that you know all of these yourself but I'm explaining in detail for those who watch your talk page but have no information about Iran and Iranians). I moved all the files in the category:Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi to category:Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and redirected the former to the latter, but today I noticed that Bellavista1957 has undid all my edits about the former Shah without providing any obvious reason. As I had lots of edit wars whit him in several different projects and I don't want to have the same edit wars on Commons, I ask you to revert all of his last edits and redirect category:Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi to category:Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and warn him to not make edit wars on Commons. I'm currently organizing files in Category:Iran and trying to move them to sub categories, so there's no time to involve myself in edit wars. Finally please note that the article of the former Iranian king on EN:WP is named Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and NOT Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi. Thanks in advance.

File:F2010 04PC.jpg, warning

Hi Mmxx, you posted me a warning about the file above. Let me first tell you I am new on Wikipedia and Wikimedia. But the artist himself, Domingo Vega de la Rosa has sent an email to on 20-11-11 to give his permission to use these pictures of his paintings on Wikipedia. I thought they would be put in the database after that. I have searched for them, so I can put them in my article about this artist. But I couldn't find them, so I thought I had to put them on Wikimedia Commons myself and it would be allright, because you have the email. I will ask the artist to sent me a copy of the email so I can send it to you to confirm this. Is that all right? Vermajol (talk) 09:51, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Dear Vermajol, thank you for your response, I've replaced the warning template in the file page with {{subst:OP}}, please notice that when you send a permission to OTRS ( you should also add this template {{subst:OP}} to the file page, an OTRS volunteer will later check the email in OTRS to verify the permission, if everything was ok they will replace this template {{OTRS pending}} with the permission tag.  ■ MMXX  talk 15:02, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

تصویر جلد نشریه

Dear MMXX I have just added an image of a magazine cover which is extracted from its affiliated website. It's been mentioned on that website that all contents can be republished and used in public domain if the name of the website is mentioned. I couldn't find the proper code to put on the description of the file. Can you help me with this? Ayahra (talk) 00:27, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

سلام دوباره در بخش بحث تان متوجه شدم که شما فارسی هم بلدید بنابراین سوالم را به فارسی می نویسم. اخیرا تصویر جلد نشریه حرکت دهندگان را از وبسایت انجمن متکفران و محققان (که این نشریه زیر مجموعه آن بوده است) در ویکی انبار ذخیر کردم اما بلافاصله توسط شما پیام نقض احتمالی کپی رایت درج شد. در تمام صفحات آن وبسایت تصریح شده که برداشت مطالب از آن با ذکر اسم وبسایت بلامانع است اما من موفق نشدم الگوی مورد نظرم را که در بخش فارسی بصورت "با ذکر منبع" هست در بخش انگلیسی پیدا کنم اگر ممکن است برای اصلاح مجوز مربوطه راهنمایی کنید با تشکر Ayahra (talk) 00:33, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Dear Ayahra, the permission mentioned on the website is not suitable for use in Wikimedia Commons, generally, permissions should be more clear and specific on the content they're releasing and the permitted usage. about the deleted cover, it also seems it is derivative work of possible non-free images. please let me know if you prefer Farsi, thank you.  ■ MMXX  talk 01:06, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Dear MMXX Many thanks for your quick response. The permission on the website has been given through this quote: استفاده از مطالب سايت با ذكر منبع و قرار دادن لينك سايت مجاز است To me, this means it can be used in public domain if the source is mentioned specifically if the "attribute", "information" and/or "Copyrighted free use provided that|insert conditions here" tags are used. Furthermore, I have already got the permission of the chief editor and license holder since I am in direct contact with them. But, how can I provide a proof in this regard? A verification letter or what? Ayahra (talk) 01:32, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Ayahra, as I said before, this cover is derivative work (اثر اشتقاقی) of possible non-free images, see these links for example:
the work has been made by using other non-free works, therefore, any possible permission from its publisher would not be useful. you/they should request for permission from original authors of the works.  ■ MMXX  talk 12:56, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

PD Iran

  2. I nominated some of my own pictures for deletion because I was not sure about their copyright status. User:Jameslwoodward deleted them.

Do you mean that images of any new building with any shape ,say Milad Tower, must be deleted from Commons? AMERICOPHILE 18:31, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately the copyright law of Iran is not very clear on threshold of originality and nothing is mentioned about de minimis, there are different explanations of laws, for example about part 7 of article 2, as some lawyers explained, an architectural work should have a creative design and could be considered as artwork to be protectable, however, as there is no clear background about threshold of originality in Iran AFAIK, we have to open DR for any specious content to discuss about them. about FOP, IMO similar to UAE, we can allow photographs of buildings which shows incomplete exterior designs, such as this one or similar images.  ■ MMXX  talk 00:45, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Web size, missing EXIF

Hi Mmxx, How can I deal with low-resolution, web-size, and EXIF-less images, such as File:Mansour New Picture In A Concert Poster 2008.jpg? Start a DR or ask the uploader to send a permission for the file to OTRS? (In other words, I have enabled "Quick Delete" tool in "My preferences". Which option should I use?

Thanks AMERICOPHILE 11:35, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello, when a file has a correct source and author information but it is lacking permission, you can tag it with {{npd}} by using the 'No permission' link. this file was transferred from English Wikipedia and it was originally uploaded by User:Mansourist, who is apparently a fan of Mansour, the file information says "Mansour New Picture In A Concert Poster 2008" so it sounds it is from a poster, the file is missing source information and could be deleted after 7 days if the correct source was not added.  ■ MMXX  talk 23:05, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

نام زبان فارسی

سلام. شما رده و الگویی ساخته بودید که در آن به‌غلط واژهٔ «فارسی» را به کار برده بودید. نخست اینکه چنین واژه‌ای در زبان انگلیسی وجود ندارد و این واژه در سدهٔ بیستم توسط عده‌ای ببخشید بی‌سواد و احتمالاً فارسی‌زبان وارد انگلیسی شد و به‌کارگیری آن در زبان انگلیسی غلط است. برای اطلاعات بیشتر مقالهٔ ویکی انگلیسی پیرامون فرهنگستان زبان و ادب فارسی را ببینید در بخش آخر در این باره توضیح داده‌است. وقتی من برای این رده‌ها اقدام کردم یکی از مدیران همهٔ ویرایش‌هایم را واگرداند. خلاصه اینکه لطفاً برای انتقال آن الگو و رده که ساخته بودید اقدام کنید چون آن مدیر گوشش بدهکار حرف‌های من نیست. نامش را عمداً اینجا نمی‌نویسم لطفاً مشارکت‌هایم را ببینید. برای آن رده‌های دیگر هم اگر اقدام کنید ممنون می‌شوم. این مدیر هرچه ساختم حذف کرد و نگذاشت انتقالشان دهم. سپاس --Z 14:17, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

سلام، الگوی نگاره هفته را تصحیح کردم، ولی در مورد رده‌های تلفظ با توجه به وجود گویش‌های متفاوت، بهتر است ابتدا فکری برای ساختار رده‌ها بکنید، برای نمونه Category:English pronunciation را ببینید.  ■ MMXX  talk 22:50, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Undeletion Request for File:HaiderMahmoud2012.JPG

Hi there, I'd like to have the file mentioned above undeleted, I'm aware that it was missing some copyright notes when I uploaded it, but this was fixed at the time and I added the label "own work" to the description, it's a painting I made of my father, and I have chosen to release copyright, I would appreciate any tips on how to undelete it, or re-upload it with the correct copyright labeling, keeping in mind that it's not someone else's work, it's my own work, a portrait of my father, painted by myself.

P.S: the question referred to you above is also mine.

Hi! I'm writing you to humbly ask you for a favor. I saw your profile and read you are part of the graphic laboratory. I was wondering if you could help me out with this file: File:Gran_Sabana_Map.jpg, to vectorize it or whatever, I don't know what would be the name for the job it requires. The fact is that part of the map is pixelated, the other part is not; the pixelated part could be improved by vectorizing I guess. It looks very mediocre when you open the file, but that's the only one I can use for this article: This is the only article I need to finish and the only file I'll need to vectorize. If you don't know how to do the job to improve it, maybe you can address me to someone you know who can. By the way, if it is too complicated to do all the lines of the states, you could leave only the outline of the country, no problem, it doesn't have to be perfect. Last, the file is not urgent, anyone could do the job now or in a month, not a problem at all. Thank you for taking the time to read this! --Paolo Costa (talk) 00:54, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I don't usually do vector graphics and it's a little time consuming, please request at Commons:Graphic Lab/Map workshop and ask them to vectorize it, also any active user at illustration workshop should be able to do it. good luck.  ■ MMXX  talk 01:21, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

دوست عزیز لطفاً خون سردی خودتان را حفظ کنید و نزاکت را نیز رعایت فرمایید. پیشتر برای شما توضیح داده بودم که در ایران آزادی پانوراما وجود ندارد و شما نمی‌توانید عکسی از سر در دانشگاه بین‌المللی امام خمینی بگیرید و آن را به صورت آزاد منتشر کنید زیرا اثر شما اثری اشتقاقی است و مالک حق تکیر تنها شما نیستید بلکه مجوز سازگار از جانب دانشگاه (یا معمار سردر یا طراح و یا هر کس دیگر که مالک حقوق بنا می‌باشد) نیز لازم و ضروری است.

کاربر عزیز، Soroush90gh، آن دو تصویر به علت نقض حق تکثیر دانشگاه بین‌المللی امام خمینی حذف شدند، یکی از آنها لوگو/طراحی بود و دیگری تصویری که مستقیماً از سایت IKIU برداشته شده بود، لطفاً دقت کنید که تنها مجازید تصاویری را بارگذاری کنید که خود پدیدآورنده آن هستید، مالک حق تکثیر آن هستید یا اجازه استفاده آزاد از آن را دارید.  ■ MMXX  talk 23:47, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

You removed the above image shortly after I posted it on WikiCommons to use in my Sandbox for an article I am preparing. I understand that you will have assumed I had made a copyright infringement. I have appealed against the deletion, but no action seems to have been taken to reinstate the image. I am unclear myself as to what is permissible in terms of using an image from Google Earth. I did go to that website and made a request to use the image. After answering several questions on an automated process, the answer seemed to be that Google have no objection to the use of the image as long as it appears with an attribution. You can see the text I coped and pasted from their site on my User talk:Kim Traynor/sandbox. Any suggestions as to what I should now do to get that image back in use?

Heroes Welcome

Hi I have just seen your note re the images and my sincere apologies, the images uploaded were taken at the Bassetlaw launch and uploaded in all good faith by the originator having indicated free use on upload. The last editor asked for an appropriate photo to be attached to enhance the article as Heroes Welcome is a visual scheme and this was noted and actioned. Heroes Welcome is an open program involving whole communities and regions, so anyone and all are free to use change and adopt the logo. I am trying to archive the scheme and its progress and am sorry if I am being a little clumsy at Wikipedia entries but as they say please keep trying, probably very trying for the editors! I can only reiterate that these images are given in all good faith and freely by the originator. Again my apologiesFwe506 (talk) 15:20, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello Again I think I understand what I have done by trying to upload through Wiki Commons, to be honest the Image aspect of this is all a bit confusing, again my apologiesFwe506 (talk) 15:32, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello, those files has been deleted because there were non-free works in their background, they were derivative works of other non-free works. also about the logo, Heroes Welcome's website mentions everything is copyrighted, you could however contact Heroes Welcome and ask them for permission to use their contents, for more information please Commons:OTRS and Commons:Licensing.  ■ MMXX  talk 15:43, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks for the guidance, I thought that a photo taken of public persons in a public place were free use so apologies. I will speak to the Heroes Welcome organisers and see if they will give permission for the use of the logo to illustrate the scheme if they agree would I be able to re submit a photo which includes the logo in a public place ie a launch? Many thanks Fwe506 (talk) 16:43, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
Sure, please ask them to send an email to OTRS ( using their official email address, stating that they are willing to release their logo (or other contents) under a free license, please notice that they should clearly mention in their email what they are licensing, for example logo, posters/banners or other contents.  ■ MMXX  talk 17:04, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

مجید عزیز، نظرم را درباره چند تصویر دادم، علت نامزد شدن تعدادی از آنها نبودن استثناء آزادی پانوراما در قانون حق تکثیر ایران است.  ■ MMXX  talk 20:38, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
جناب شما طرف ما هستید یا اون کاربر
به شما گفتیم بیاید مشکل را حل کنید که حذف نشه نه اینکه رای به حذف بدید!!!، این همه تصویر از میدان و خیابان تو ویکی‌های مختلف هستش، کدوم حق تکثیر، میدان شهر که این حرف‌ها را نداره، جای عمومیه، در ضمن این تصویرها که پانوراما نیست.

--Kasir (talk) 21:55, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

مقاله آزادی پانوراما را ببینید، منظور تصویرسازی از آثاری است که به طور دائمی در اماکن عمومی قرار گرفته‌اند، در ایران، با این فرض که سازمانی دولتی مالک آن آثار باشد، تا 30 سال بعد از تاریخ عرضه دارای حق تکثیر می‌باشند. نام و تاریخ مرگ پدیدآورنده این پرونده نیز باید مشخص شود، در غیر این صورت حذف خواهد شد. همچنین من تنها نظرم را درباره هر پرونده گفتم، موفق باشید.  ■ MMXX  talk 14:50, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
وقتی همچین قانونی در ایران تصویب نشده نمیتوان گفت برخلاف آن هم نمی‌شود رفتار کرد، چون نگاه دولت ایران به ویکی‌پدیا یک سایت دانشنامه‌ای است و فقط برای معرفی شهرها تصاویر قرار داده شده و تا به حال کسی را برای تصویربرداری محاکمه نکرده‌اند فقط در مواردی مانند میدان بهارستان که تابلو عکس‌برداری ممنون نصب است.
شما به عنوان یک ایرانی می‌توانستید رای خود اعلام نکنید زیرا کسی شما را برای اعلام نکردن نظر بازخواست نمی‌کرد، متاسفانه موضع‌گیری شما جای تأسف و تأمل دارد.--Kasir (talk) 18:24, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
وقتی این استثناء در ایران وجود ندارد قانون عادی حق تکثیر ایران مشمول همه چیز می‌شود، همچنین کم‌توجهی به یک قانون به معنی عدم وجود آن نیست. شما گفتید "بررسی کنید" من هم بررسی کردم! تنها مورد قابل حفظ این پرونده است، در صورتی که نام و تاریخ مرگ پدیدآورنده آن مشخص شود.  ■ MMXX  talk 14:11, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to events in June and July: bot, script, template, and Gadget makers wanted

I invite you to the yearly Berlin hackathon, 1-3 June. Registration is now open. If you need financial assistance or help with visa or hotel, then please register by May 1st and mention it in the registration form.

This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, teaching, and socialising, primarily talking about ResourceLoader and Gadgets (extending functionality with JavaScript), the switch to Lua for templates, Wikidata, and Wikimedia Labs.

We want to bring 100-150 people together, including lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!

I also thought you might want to know about other upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing.

Check out the the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC and our other events.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page at Sumanah (talk) 00:00, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I just wanted to let you know that recently blocked User:Argentumm has answered your comments with insults. I removed them because they were quite offensive, you can chek them in page history. Since it's argentinian slang es quite hard to get the meaning, but the guy wanted to say something like "i don't care what you say, you're a pain in the ass, or don't you have anything else to do?. Greetings.--Ileana n (talk) 22:31, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for caring for your our community, perhaps they were frustrated because their work has been deleted, I appreciate your help, but please note that removing another editor's comment from their own talk page may inflame the situation, usually the best practice is just to ignore it. I looked for a fair use policy on Spanish Wikipedia, but translating es:WP:FU suggests that it's not allowed in es-wp too, so there is nothing they could do about that cover image, please explain this for User:Argentumm if it's possible for you. thanks again.  ■ MMXX talk 20:20, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

El Escorial, your edit

Hello Mmxx
I thank you very much for your work and your edit, it is a great job !
However, I'll keep my nomination in FP how it is now, with the two guys.
Don't you think this monument is very "mineral" and strict ?
I think so for my part. That's why I kept those two guys, because IMO, they "break" the symmetry just a little bit, enough.
Moreover, they give something "human" in this "cold" picture, and provide an idea of the scale.
I understand very well different opinions, I guess it is here a simple matter of taste.
By the way, I'll tell you a secret: I've already removed five or six disturbing tourists from this image...Clin
Anyway, thank you very much for your interest, and for your work, again.
I think it is good we can find on "Commons" both my version and yours, then users can chose !
Kind regards from Paris, --Jebulon (talk) 23:26, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome and thank you for the photo. it seems that the majority prefer your version and they already voted for it, I like it too, so IMO we don't need to confuse them with another alternative. regards.  ■ MMXX talk 21:59, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Many pictures

Thank you for the note. These are pictures that belong to a firend. Is there a template he can fill out to release more than one picture at the same time? In other words, if he wants to release 100 pictures, does he have to write 100 emails? Bobjgalindo (talk) 15:39, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Image voting

In reference to my comments here: Commons:Featured_picture_candidates#File:Nepali_woman.2C_Ghyaru.jpg
I feel uncomfortable editing the Voting section in the nomination guidelines; but perhaps this needs clarification. ~Eric F 19:07, 22 October 2012 (UTC) - Although I just noticed "Anonymous votes are not allowed" at the bottom, that relates to Anonymous signing, implying: ~~~~ is not "anonymous". ~E 20:15, 22 October 2012 (UTC) - Besides, whenever I'm wrong, it's always somebody elses fault! Clin

Hi Eric, wording of the rules seems to be misleading but please note you don't have an account to be qualified for the first rule :) anyway, I changed the wording a bit, also I would like to encourage you to create an account, that way you could be more helpful in projects such as FPC.  ■ MMXX talk 15:38, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

مشکل در بارگذاری مجدد تصویر

سلام به شما. عرضمن به خدمتتان من کاربر:گیر_3پیچ2005 هستم که سالهاست در ویکی فارسی ویرایش میکنم. اگر خاطرتان باشد قبلا هم با شما تماس داشتم. در مورد طراحی با نرم افزار بود که چندتا سوال مفصل ازتان پرسیدم. غرض از مزاحمت این دفعه این است که من در انبار مادام العمر بسته شده ام و سالهات با زاپاس در حال بارگذاری تصویر و رده بندی انبوهی از تصاویر مربوط به ایران عزیز هستم. یکی از تصاویری که قبلا بارگذاری کردم، تصویری از پانورامای تقاطع غیرهمسطح میدان جهاد در اراک است که در رده:ترابری در اراک قابل رویت است. اینها در اصل دوتا تصویر بودند که یکی از بچه ها زحمت کرد و یکیش را ادیت کرد. حال که بلد شدم چجوری با فتوشاپ 5 میشه گوشه های پانوراما را پر کرد، نمی توانم نسخه جدیدی از تصویر را با کمک زاپاس بارگذاری کنم. به عبارت بهتر لینکش خاموش است و بجایش نوشته

You cannot overwrite this file

حال این سوال مطرح است چطور کاربران کامانز روزانه دهها عکس را بارگذاری مجدد می کنند و خودم هم در گذشته یکبار این کار را کردم. ولی الان من نمی تونم این عکس را اصلاح کنم؟

پیشاپیش ممنون از شما. 22:59, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

سلام، این تصویر را می‌گویید؟ احتمالاً حساب شما کمتر از 4 روز عمر دارد، برای بارگذاری نسخهٔ تازه‌ای از یک پرونده حساب شما باید تأییدشده باشد. موفق باشید.  ■ MMXX talk 13:31, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

طراحی نقشه

سلام مجدد به شما. بازهم گیر_3پیچ هستم. ممنون از جوا سوال قبلی. منظورم همان تصویر بود. پس چند روز دیگر پس مجددا امتحان میکنم.

راستش با این آخرین اکانتم که الان در خدمتتون هستم، سعی کردم هرچه عکس با ارزش بالا در ویکی فارسی موجود است را به انبار منتقل کنم تا در اختیار همگان قرار گیر. حدود 100 تا شد. دیگه عکس خوبی که جامانده باشد سراغ ندارم. حالا فقط مانده یک روز بنشینم و همه‌شان را مفصل رده‌دهی کنم. آخه نمیدونم میدونید یا نه که من رده‌ده خیلی ماهری هستم. بیشتر از هر کاربر دیگه‌ای در ویکی فارسی رده ساختم. بیشتر از هر کاربر فارسی زبان دیگری هم در کامانز رده ساختم. حداقل 3000 ویرایش رده در اینجا دارم که یا با زاپاسهای مختلف است یا با آی پی.

و اما غرض از مزاحمت اینکه کاربر:آرش یکی از مدیران خوب ویکی فارسی ازم خواسته یک نقشه مربوط به دوره ساسانیان برایش ترسیم کنم. من هم هنوز بلد نیستم با نرم‌افزارهای وکتوری کار کنم و فتوشاپ 5 کار میکنم. پس دنبال نقشه های بلنک رفتم و به عنوان مثال این. پس کاری که کردم این بود که با ایلوسترتور 6 بازش کردم و با کلیپ ماسک یک قسمت را که حدود قلمرو ساسانیان بود جدا کردم. ولی به نظرم کیفیتش هنوز پایین است. فکر میکنم نقشه‌های اس‌وی‌جی بدون مرزهای سیاسی دیگری هم باید بارگذاری شده باشند که خطوط ساحلی با جزئیات بیشتری داشته باشند؟ آیا همینطور است؟ در ضمن در نقشه اسکن شده‌ای که برای من فرستاده شده است، رودخانه‌های ایران و کشورهای همسایه هم است. آیا نقشه بلنک با چنین ویژگی هم یافت؟ اگر بخواهم بعد از رستر کردن نقشه رودخانه ها را با دستور پث بیفزایم میترسم کیفیت رودها خوب نشود. شما چه پیشنهادی دارید؟

سوال آخر هم اینکه با توجه به اینکه نقشه قرار است پی‌ان‌جی باشد و احتمالا در سایز 300 در مقاله قرار گیرد، فکر می کنید من این نقشه را در چه سایزی طراحی کنم که وقتی در نمایش کوچک می‌شود، جزئیاتش کمتر آسیب ببیند؟حداکثر

Hi, please see here and leave a comment. may be we can solve many problems of fa.wikipedia. thanks Yamaha5 (talk) 11:27, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'm glad to see you back. it's an interesting idea and it may be actually possible, because Iran's news agencies shouldn't expect anyone to respect their copyright and many people may use their content without any permission, some of news agencies like Mehr already allow their users to use their content provided that they get the proper credit, so they might be interested in publishing their works on Wikimedia projects too, all they have to do is to add a few more words to their copyright notice and be more specific about their license. if you're going to contact them, please remember that they should specifically and irrevocably release their works under a free license which allows commercial use and derivative works (their watermarks can be removed).  ■ MMXX talk 17:06, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Even though i am not a Pashtun nor a Tajik it is still racist, every ethnic group is allowed to be here. I have already showed him a source, but he keeps removing the edit.

قطع دسترسی و بسته شدن

با سلام من تاکنون دوبار توسط شما قطع دسترسی شده ام لازم به ذکر است من کاربر جدیدی هستم و چندان آشنایی به قوانین نداشتم اما تلاش خود را کردم تا با قوانین(که متاسفانه بیشتر هم به انگلیسی بوده) آشنا گردم و طبق آن عمل نمایم اما هربار با کوچکترین خطا شما من را قطع دسترسی کردید! این کار شما هرچند حق شما باشد اما بسی موجب دلسردیست کاش به جای آن فقط یکبار در مورد اینکه چه باید انجام دهم به من توضیح میدادید و هربار با کوچکترین خطا تنها به بستن دسترسی ام بسنده نمیکردید ضمنا من فکر نمیکنم تصاویری که حذف کردید، حذف شدنی باشند چراکه هم توسط سایتهای رسمی آن افراد به نمایش عموم درآمده و هم اجازه نامه لازم را وارد نموده ام همچنین در انتظار OTRS آن میباشم چراکه درخواستهای OTRS را همان ایتدا وارد نمودم با تشکر (talk) 21:58, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

در "نمایش عموم" قرار داشتن دلیل آزاد بودن نیست! fa:ویکی‌پدیا:راهنمای حق تکثیر را ببینید. تمامی پرونده‌های حذف شده شما، از منابع غیرآزاد و بدون مجوز برداشته‌شده بودند. متن الگوهای هشدار نقض حق تکثیر به فارسی موجود و به اندازه کافی گویا است، به همین دلیل نیازی به توضیح دوباره نیست، بعد از اینکه بحث خود را بایگانی کردید، چنین فرض کردم که هشدار نقض حق تکثیر را درک کرده‌اید و نیازی به کمک ندارید، همچنین مشخص است که مشکلی برای ارتباط با بنده نداشتید و در صورت نیاز می‌توانستید درخواست کمک کنید. در مورد OTRS هم لطفا صبور باشید تا به آن رسیدگی شود و از درخواست احیا برای پرونده حذف شده خودداری کنید.  ■ MMXX talk 15:52, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

اول اینکه هرکجا مشکلی داشتید می‌توانید از بنده یا سایر کاربران فارسی در Commons:قهوه‌خانه، کمک بگیرید. به صورت کلی، شما تنها می‌توانید تصاویری را بارگذاری کنید که یا خودتان پدید آورده‌اید، یا اطمینان دارید که آن اثر تحت جوازی آزاد منتشر شده است، منبع چنین اثری باید به وضوح ذکر کند که اثر تحت کدام جواز آزاد منتشر شده است، در این صورت باید به منبع پیوند دهید و نام پدیدآورنده آن را ذکر کنید. تصاویر خبرگزاری‌ها یا وبسایت‌های دیگر، عموما حق تکثیر دارند و بارگذاری آنها در اینجا ممکن نیست.  ■ MMXX talk 20:12, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. it's okay as long as you attribute the work and publish it under the same license.  ■ MMXX talk 23:19, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Salaam Alaykom. I'm trying to get in touch with so that they can fix the alleged problems and we can use the pics in commons. Although most of the pics are now useable here, I'm trying to make it completely useable! I followed the pages discussing the problems of this website and found some points which should be fixed. For example, some of their pics were borrowed from other sources! and some of them were TV screen shots. The major problem, as was mentioned in those various long discussions, were not mentioning the authors and/or creators. So my questions are as such:

  • How can fix this problem considering the fact that some of the photographers are really unknown and the pics date back to almost 30 years ago?
  • Does the fact that is a subsection of governmental organizations changes its copy right rules? How?
  • What else do you think should be done to make the site completely useable? Thanks Mhhossein (talk) 04:00, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Salam! the problem is that this website has various unattributed images, from different sources and different times. if the authors and publication information of those works are unknown, then cannot legally relicense them. being a governmental organization doesn't change anything, and authors and publication information of the images should be available in order to verify their copyright status.
Please note that the general copyright notices under websites, only applies to their own contents and to those contents which they have legal rights to relicense them.  ■ MMXX talk 20:24, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
Is it enough if the authors are attributed? I'm talking about the images they allege to own. Mhhossein (talk) 07:26, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
As you know, we can only use free images on Commons. such works are either in public domain, or their authors and copyright holders have released them under a free license. to determine whether a work is free or not, we need some basic information such as authors name and date of first publication. some photos may have been published more than 30 years ago, their authors may have died more than 50 years ago, or the author might be a legal personality, in those cases we can use {{PD-Iran}}, but without some basic information, it is not possible to tell if a work is PD or not. also when someone claims that they have permission from the copyright holders to publish and relicense their works, we have to be able to verify their claim, either by contacting the original authors, or by confirming it through a trustworthy third-party.  ■ MMXX talk 15:29, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
When there are various authors, what sort of trustworthy third-party can help? what should be done then? Mhhossein (talk) 11:18, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
We have to review all images one by one. there is no way around it. other sources where photos were published previously (books, newspapers...) may help to verify their copyright status.  ■ MMXX talk 20:30, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
