Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, Philafrenzy!

SEEKING PERMISSION TO USE ONE OF YOUR IMAGES[edit]

I am from Mosaic Films and we are producing a series of educational animations for BBC Learning, on the history of medicine. We are using lots of archival illustrations and photographs to bring the history to life, and were wondering if it might be at all possible if we could use the image you have of the former premises of T.J.Boulting & Sons, Riding House Street, London. As it is BBC Learning, we are unfortunately unable to attribute. I am happy to tell you more about the way this will be used if you would like to start a discussion about this. Please get in touch: auriol@mosaicfilms.com

All the best,

Auriol

Category naming[edit]

Hi, it's cool that you're creating categories for UK stamps by year. What was your reason for choosing year-then-country? Categories like Category:1919 stamps seem to use two different formats, and it's never been clear to me which one should be the standard. Stan Shebs (talk) 18:21, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

I noticed that too, but another user had already created several by year then country and there was no facility to rename them so I decided to stay with that. Incidentally, I also created by reign but capitalised the R of reign by mistake. Do you know how to change that? Thanks. Philafrenzy (talk) 00:40, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

File:God or Anti-God propaganda stamp.jpg[edit]

What country is it from, and why should it be reasonably assumed to be out of copyright? -- AnonMoos (talk) 12:18, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

  • I can't say for sure so I suppose it will have to be deleted unless you can find a better licence. Philafrenzy (talk) 16:16, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
It's not just the country of origin, it's also that the 70 years rule generally applies as 70 years from the death of the author (not 70 years from date of publication -- and by "before Barbarossa" dating, it won't even be definitely 70 years after publication until a month and a half from now...) -- AnonMoos (talk) 17:15, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Stamps of Poland[edit]

I reverted your entry about polish stamps. Unfortunately it is not correct, See Commons_talk:Stamps/Public_domain#Polish_stamps_are_copyrighted. --Jarekt (talk) 00:01, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

OK, I was thinking about reverting it myself actually as I had just seen the earlier discussion. Is it correct, however, that the stamps are PD from 1994? Philafrenzy (talk) 00:04, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Every few years we go through big deletions of Polish Stamps. I think previous Deletion covered everything after 1945. I do not thing 1994 made stamps PD that law mostly retroactively removed PD status from Polish works that were PD before. --Jarekt (talk) 00:31, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for uploading images from Wikipedia to Commons. However, the file you uploaded, File:1914 Greece educational revenue stamp.jpg appears to be a scaled down version of the version on Wikipedia. Please reupload the full version of the image. You can then tag the scaled down version with {{duplicate}} to have it deleted. Consider using CommonsHelper to provide the correct image description and licensing tags. Thank you,

File:Stamp Jamaica 1870 1sh QV.jpg[edit]

While I don't own one, nor have seen one of these stamps, maybe you have, but your increased contrast looks rather overdone to me. I agree that the original sandafayre image may be a little dark I think you have gone too far. Maybe a slight increase in brightness would have been better rather than increased contrast. Of course, if you have compared it to an original I accept your new image as an improvement. Cheers Ww2censor (talk) 03:42, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

I changed it to a mid level, trouble is it's not a particularly good scan in the first place, and really you can barely see the variety anyway. I will try to put a bit more Jamaica up. Philafrenzy (talk) 11:15, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Re:File:Estampilla de Austria 1973 000.jpg[edit]

Ok si esta estampilla esta en derecho, entiendo que debe borrarse, sin embargo entiendo que las estampillas austriacas están libres de derechos de el año 1975. También llama mi atención que si una estampilla de 1973 esta en derecho como señala quien sometió a consulta de borrado no halla visto que hay estampillas más recientes y que están bajo la misma licencia y que entonces todas deberían ser borradas. Hago referencia a la siguiente lista:

Para mayor comodidad revisar Category:Stamps of Austria by year

SEEKING PERMISSION TO USE ONE OF YOUR IMAGES[edit]

Dear Philafrenzy

We are visual artists and academics who are currently working on a chapter in a book entitled ‘The Photograph and the Album’ (published by MuseumsEtc http://museumsetc.com/blogs/news/7422776-forthcoming-the-photograph-and-the-album). We are also contributing to the editorship of this volume.

Our chapter is examining the role that the internet plays in acting as a 'giant photograph album'. We have taken this principle and have begun to look for images, searching – as many of us do – under our own names, curious to find out what images appear. The following image came up in relation to one of our surnames: Miller's Green Gloucester with Parliament Room and Cathedral http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Miller%27s_Green_Gloucester_with_Parliament_Room_and_Cathedral.JPG

We are interested in using the image in our chapter and want to confirm that you agree that we can do this in line with the statement that appears in Wikimedia Commons which is as follows:

“You are free: to share – to copy, distribute and transmit the work to remix – to adapt the work Under the following conditions: attribution – You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).”

To be clear about our use of the image, it will appear as part of a sequence of images for which we will provide full captions and acknowledgement (in reference to the information which appears on the webpage provided above).

We hope you are willing to give permission and would appreciate if you would confirm this via this email - r.miller@salford.ac.uk . We would also be very grateful if you could inform us of any other parties from whom we should seek permission in reference to this image, if you are aware of any such parties.

If you are willing to give us permission please confirm the text you would like us to present in relation to the image to satisfy the condition of attribution. We would appreciate it if you could respond by Friday May 3rd.

Thank you for your consideration & please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Very best regards Rosie Miller & Jonathan Carson r.miller@salford.ac.uk

Replied by email giving permission today. Philafrenzy (talk) 00:13, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Stamp-UK 1955 Castle definitives.jpg[edit]

I always understood the Castle series were the GB high value definitives of the 1950s, so I was surprised to see this edit. Am I missing something? Can you please explain? Ww2censor (talk) 21:42, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

They are in category Wilding Series, which is a sub-category of the definitives, though until I read the article on Wikipedia I must admit I had never thought of them as Wildings, but I guess they are as they use the relevant Wilding portrait. Thanks. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:56, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Ok, it's curious how we perceive some things like this. BTW, were you thinking of contributing to the Signpost interview about the philately project? I did not get time yet. The one contributor has rather little to say and I am surprised that Stan has not done a piece yet either. Cheers. Ww2censor (talk) 09:32, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes I have been meaning to do it. I am aware of the existing contribution. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:37, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
If I get a chance I will try to contribute either today or tomorrow. BTW, I should commend you on your extensive contributions to the Philately Project on the enwiki. Ww2censor (talk) 13:46, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, and the same to you! Philafrenzy (talk) 13:50, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Deletion requests/File:Congo 139 1967.JPG[edit]

Hello Philafrenzy I was quite surprised when I saw your delete requests for a bunch of files of stamps I uploaded in Commons. For two reasons. First of all because those files were pictures I took of stamps. I think stamps are not under the copyright laws because they are useful objects. They are made for charging a letter or postcard, that is, for paying a postal service. They are not made for being an artistic object like a film, a book, a painting or a statue. Second reason is that I paid for those stamps... they are mine. I photographed my stamps. The artist got paid when he made his drawing for the postal service. The postal service got paid when they sold the stamps to their users. So... the copyright is already paid. This is my point of view. Best regards. Towiki60 (talk) 18:31, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

I understand your point of view and wish you were right as then I could upload all of my collection. Unfortunately it is the law that counts and in most countries postage stamps are copyright the artist or the relevant national Post Office for a long time after issue. There is more guidance here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Stamps/Public_domain Philafrenzy (talk) 19:57, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, as I changed the name in order to avoid confusion and make it clear it is a mirror image, it seems not to be a good move to upload a another version of the image like you did. How can we solve this? Lotje (talk) 12:16, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

It's in use so we can't leave it as it is as two pages are showing the mirror image by mistake. I have suggest a simple rename. There is no benefit in leaving a mirror image here. What is it good for? Philafrenzy (talk) 12:29, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

File:Crouch End post office.jpg[edit]

I used to live about 10 mins walk from here back in the early 19…s. My wife and I used to push the pram up here for the weekly shopping! Do you ever add the coordinates to such images as I could not easily find 28 Topsfield Parade. None of the maps I looked at actually placed it at that address but on Tottenham Lane. Curious. Cheers Ww2censor (talk) 13:38, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Unfortunately, neither my camera nor my phone include that facility. Perhaps when I replace them. That's the post office in Broadway Parade which continues as Tottenham Lane slightly further on. Topsfield Parade is the name for the row of shops rather than the street name I think. Those Victorian/Edwardian rows of shops are characteristic of that part of north London as I expect you know.
Queens Parade
Queens Parade in Muswell Hill is another one. Philafrenzy (talk) 18:56, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks; I saw Topsfield Parade as a small street backing onto Broadway Parade, but I dont' remember it in such details. I was just interested because I lived so close by. Ww2censor (talk) 22:29, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

This looks copyright[edit]

This website indicated that File:The postal services of the Gold Coast to 1901.jpg is a 2003 book, so I'm not sure it can be freely licensed. Ww2censor (talk) 18:13, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

The book is recent put the picture is Victorian or earlier and the text is too simple to qualify for copyright. Philafrenzy (talk) 19:40, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Yeah but when was the picture published previously or is it a painting from a gallery or museum? One should really know where it is from as it might still be in copyright. I could not find anything old online. Ww2censor (talk) 13:33, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
I will add the full details from the book shortly. Philafrenzy (talk) 17:28, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
Great. Thanks Ww2censor (talk) 19:17, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
It's an 1874 print: Cape Coast Castle - Zouaves embarking for Sierra Leone. I have added the details. Artist not stated however. Philafrenzy (talk) 22:12, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

eBay items[edit]

BTW, you can use the eBay temaplate {{Ebay item}} and add the item number to File:Hildebrand Harmsworth postcard 1906.jpg that you recently uploaded; then we have an actual linked source. Ww2censor (talk) 13:40, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi Philafrenzy, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{Rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please leave a redirect behind unless you have a valid reason not to do so. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references. Please see this section of the file rename guideline for more information.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

Queensland_Telegraph_Form[edit]

I came upon this image when working on the Cardwell Bush Telegraph article. I don't know if you are able to remember back to 2011 when you uploaded the image, but you said the creator was the British Government and then licensed it as a UK public domain image. However, I don't think this can be so. The form is for a telegraph in Queensland in the 1880s. The Queensland Government was established in 1860 and post and telegraph were within their responsibilities until Federation of Australia in 1901 when post and telegraph became Australian Government responsibilities. So, I think this is a Queensland Government document (but I think still public domain under PD-Australia). Is it OK with you if I change this? Thanks Kerry Raymond (talk) 23:38, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Yes, no problem, I wasn't sure when such items moved from British to Australian responsibility. Thanks. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:45, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

The Were-Wolf cover image[edit]

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Were-Wolf_by_Clemence_Housman.jpg

The page history means to me (uncertainly) that you provided one image 2013-12-14 with documentation. You scanned some c. 1900 original? Do you mean that that image including top banner shows front cover of some c. 1900 book?

Later I'll write to the person who revised the documentation this January, probably. --P64 (talk) 01:53, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

It's an 1896 illustration and out of copyright. You can see it here: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/13131/13131-h/13131-h.htm Philafrenzy (talk) 10:10, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, the illustration is "Sweyn's Finding" from the end of the 1896 first ed. of the story as a book [1]. Is the image with yellow banner a scan of the front cover of one of the modern reprints that von-eitzen.de identifies: Reprint Edition, 2000 // Ayer Company Publishers, Inc. (or) Reprint Edition 1976 by Arno Press Inc.? (This section is my first contribution to www.Wikimedia.org; I don't know the documentation standard and don't mean to criticize, only to identify the edition where the image is used at EN.wikipedia.org, whose caption I revised this weekend. I don't see any cover image at von-eitzen.de, only the interior artwork of the 2000 reprint). --P64 (talk) 22:18, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
I think the source of that version was https://web.archive.org/web/20140211005258/http://thefreehold.us/?p=1828 which doesn't state which edition the cover is from. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:16, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Category:Andy's Diner[edit]

This category combines 2 photos of the Orient Express restaurant in Seattle's Sodo neighorhood, which was once known as "Andy's Diner" with a photo of a now-demolished restaurant on Seattle's Capitol Hill that was also once known as "Andy's Diner", later the third successive location of Cafe Septième. Is there even any reason at all for a category here? - Jmabel ! talk 18:33, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

They all appear in a Wikipedia article of that name Andy's Diner. Which is the photo that is wrong? Is it the black and white one? It would be useful if you could check that article. Philafrenzy (talk) 20:00, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
The black and white one is the unrelated one. - Jmabel ! talk 21:37, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Nope, I was wrong. The picture is indeed the same restaurant; the description was wrong. (There were, indeed, two "Andy's Diner"s in Seattle; the description on the B&W one was about the one on Capitol Hill, but the picture is the Sodo one.) - Jmabel ! talk 21:45, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

No offense, but wearing shorts in a church is not very respectful, also as a tourist, let alone as a worshipper. There is (as it should) a clothing etiquette/dress code for churches (also outside services), just as there are (and should be) for fine restaurants, operas, classical music concerts and official functions. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 31.200.8.179 (talk) 17:23, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:
  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

This file may be deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Trump's Small Hand Soap for Dirty Politics.jpg, is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such works would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a map that has been altered from the original. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the description page states who made this derivative work, it currently doesn't specify who created the original work, so the overall copyright status is unclear. If you did not create the original work depicted in this image, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

Please edit the file description and add the missing information, or the file may be deleted. If you created the original content yourself, enter this information as the source. If someone else created the content, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so. Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

September 2019: it's Wiki Loves Monuments time again![edit]

Hi

You're receiving this message because you've previously contributed to the annual Wiki Loves Monuments contest in the UK. We'd be delighted if you would do so again this year and help record our local built environment for future generations.

You can find more details at the Wiki Loves Monuments UK website. Or, if you have images taken in other countries, you can check the international options. This year's contest runs until 30 September 2019.

Many thanks for your help once more! MichaelMaggs (talk) 15:35, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Important message for file movers[edit]

Commons File mover.svg

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:36, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Use of photos[edit]

Please contact me about some of the photos you have taken. Thank you. GizmoLucyJumper (talk) 14:47, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Please let me know on what basis you are able to take and publish photographs of a personal home without permission? Your photos include car number plates and other identifying factors that even Google do not include. Who gave you permission to photograph windows and doors of a private property and subsequently publish them? Have you photographed your home and published those photos too? There is an issue of privacy, security and respect which you seem to think unimportant and have totally ignored. I look forward to receiving your response. GizmoLucyJumper (talk) 00:11, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
I take a lot of photos of houses from the street, mostly listed buildings, but others too. There is a legal right in the U.K. to do so. Please give a specific example of an image to which you object and we can have a more detailed discussion about your concerns. (Add your next message below this one please) Philafrenzy (talk) 08:30, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
You have taken a series of photos of Ossulston House in Barnet. These include a car number plate which could link a vehicle to the property and detailed photos of 2 windows and the front door. Please share details of the UK law which give you the right to do this without explicit permission from the owner. As I said before Google pixilate car details and people. Why did you not decide to do the same? Whilst the property might be listed it is not public property. Seeking permission before publishing images would not seem unreasonable. I presume you have published similar images of your home? And car? And specific features? Without exception our neighbours and friends are most unhappy at your decision to publish images without permission and with the explicit wish to then share those images. We look forward to hearing your response. Thank you. GizmoLucyJumper (talk) 08:46, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
There is a broad legal right in the U.K.to take photographs of objects, including houses, in public. These photographs were taken purely because the house is a listed building of architectural and historical interest. All the pictures were taken from the street. You can't see into the house in any of them. Chipping Barnet is so short of parking that one is rarely able to take a picture without someone's car being included but I will see what I can do about blurring the number plates. Rest assured, nobody is interested in you personally, you remain anonymous. Philafrenzy (talk) 09:20, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi. I am the author of a photo showing illegal graffiti on the building, this is not a mural. The author is known only from a nickname, this work is illegal, it is in a place not intended for painting any graffiti. I am the author of a photo of graffiti in public space, and this is legal.
