Thank you for uploading files on Commons.

Please add your files to appropriative pages and/or categories where other users could easily find them. For example to Category:Antarctica.

beetje bijdehand ben jij


But if a user's name is "User:Fred Jones" {{PAGENAME}} only shows as "Fred", ie. it cuts off at the first space. (OK, my example wasn't very good...) Can you show me an example where it went wrong? Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 01:09, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

please don't subst deletion tags[edit]

The only things that really need to be subst'ed are NSD, NLD and maybe talk page notices. Thanks for your work in marking copyvios! :) Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 11:06, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Oh, wow... that's funny. I didn't realise, I just changed mine. I don't use it that much myself (I prefer to just zap on sight if possible :)).
BTW...maybe you will like to help me with this? It's a record of all the new accounts that Orgullobot has welcomed. I just go through and check their contribs, and remove them from the list. If you are lucky, all you will need to do is tell them to {{please link images}} (ie, use a category or gallery). More often you will find a whole lot to put NSD or NLD, and if you can tell they don't speak English, maybe hunt down a translator too. Hm, sounds like fun, doesn't it. ;) Well even if you just want to remove the "easy" cases, that would be welcome too. cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 15:26, 30 May 2006 (UTC)


¿ Cual es el problema ? Las banderas que realizo las copio de donde las veo. No lo entiendo. Es por no usar el programa inkscape ? No siempre me salen bien con el. Walden69 16:55, 3 June 2006 (UTC)


Las banderas oficiales no hay que pedir permiso para reproducirlas, en principio. Sigo sin entender nada. Y que pasa con las banderas de estados desaparecidos, ficticios o inventados Walden69 17:09, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Te sugeriría que tuvieses unos modos un poco más suaves, si es posible, con éste usuario. Recuerda Wikipedia:No morder a los novatos. Ya le estoy ayudando yo a comprender la dinámica de trabajo de commons. Saludos. --Joanot Martorell 10:05, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
Ya, te comprendo, pero con las superpestañas del Firefox 1500 imágenes, entre tres, se arregla en un santiamén. Y, a cambio, si le guiamos para que lo haga correctamente, tendríamos otros 1500 trabajos libres potenciales, en vez de irse sintiéndose puteado, que es como me ha manifestado en mi página de usuario, que abandonaba el proyecto. --Joanot Martorell 15:54, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Image:Eminem mugshot2.jpg[edit]

Hi, this photo is a mugshot, probably taken by the Royal Oak Police Department (Detroit, Michigan) or Eminem himself. Anyway, this photo is in the public domain because works such as official legal documents and public records created by state and local government agencies in the United States are generally not eligible for copyright for reasons of public policy. See the original document on the right. Code Binaire 18:42, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Possibilities for WM projects[edit]

Hi Platonides, since you were the only one to comment on my post at the Village Pump about calendars and the like, maybe you will be interested in this: m:User:Pfctdayelise/WikimediaShop. It's based on some ideas I brought up here. What do you think? You're welcome to help me develop some "Commons packs" if you like (and especially Spanish material too!). cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 16:03, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I realise that some stuff would just make more sense on a CD (or on paper, ala m:WikiReader). But for the moment I just want to develop some things that are download-only. So maybe no Spoken Wikipedia... Certainly we could sell stuff on Ebay. (Anyone could, of course. :)) It seems a bit... cheap? I'm not sure. :) But anyway thanks for your thoughts. pfctdayelise (translate?) 01:45, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Ukrainian stamps[edit]

Hi, thanks for the message. I would suggest that you put this question to administrator User:EugeneZelenko who knows more about ex-Soviet Union-copyright law than I do. Thuresson 00:30, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Re: Image:Ukrainian Stamp Fifa World Cup.jpg[edit]

Hi, recently Image:Ukrainian Stamp Fifa World Cup.jpg has been uploaded ([1]). The image claims to be PD-stamp according to Ukranian law. This seems to me like a reupload of Ukrainian_Stamp_Fifa_Wold_Cup.jpg, deleted by User:Thuresson due to FIFA 2006 world cup logo. I advised him and he sent me to you as you probably know better than us if this stamp can stay on commons or not. (is the stamp PD? can Ukrainia give to public domain a derivateve work of a logo?)

Cheers Platonides 10:52, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not big expert in international copyrights law. I think this stamp is derivative work, so it must be deleted. --EugeneZelenko 14:14, 14 June 2006 (UTC)


Hola! Muchas gracias por el consejo, pero el problema no es que no quiera, sino que no tengo los medios para guardar archivos SVG. Si pudiera lo haría, pero bueno, creo que hay alguién que las va remplazando por el buen formato, o en todo caso ya ha remplazado algunas. De todas formas muchas gracias. Aliman5040 16:14, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Re: Valo3 images[edit]

Hi! Thanks for the message, and sorry for the delayed reply. I think that it is likely that Valo3 is a wikipedian who uploaded images that he/she created and then never revisited the commons, and so wasn't aware that anything was wrong until I removed the images from wikipedia. Now that they are appropriately tagged I am happy to let them stay unless there is evidence that the tags are incorrect. JeremyA 23:45, 16 June 2006 (UTC)


Image:DemonDeLuxe southpark.gif is not an exact duplicate of Image:DemonDeLuxe southpark.png: the eyes are different, skin colour is different and one has a glowing stomach. Please only use {{duplicate}} for EXACT duplicates. Files of different file types are rarely exact duplicates. pfctdayelise (translate?) 05:58, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Yes, {{redundant}} is depreciated. I think you were looking for {{superseded}} (I changed it to this). Note "superseded" is not a deletion tag. I was a little bit annoyed because a lot of people seem to be using {{duplicate}} on PNG flags to get them deleted. IMO this is totally wrong and I plan to change them all to "superseded". But I'm sorry for making a wrong assumption if you just made a simple mistake. :) cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 13:39, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Foto con el logo de Hasecorp[edit]

¡Hola! Haciendo algunas traducciones, he llegado a esta página: Commons:Derivative works. Me ha dejado de piedra. Inmediatamente recordé haber visto esta imagen en commons: Image:Microsoft Sign on German campus.jpg pensando que si una foto con alguien con una camiseta del Mikey Mouse no puede ser subida a commons porque el Sr. Walt no te ha autorizado a que publiques esa foto, ese peaso logo de Hasecorp menos todavía. He visto que no soy el único que entiende que según lo que dice esa página, esa imagen no puede estar en commons (se considera el logo de Hasecorp como artwork propietario, además con una señal de copyright). Estoy algo confuso, porque este tipo de restricciones me parecen excesivas (el fair use me parece perfecto que no se admita, pero esto...) así que me gustaría que se aclarase este tema y si esa imagen finalmente no tiene cabida o bien el artículo citado anteriormente no es correcto. Un saludo --Ciencia Al Poder 16:00, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Hola, esta imagen está puesta en como de origen desconocido, después de que la cargaras, por lo que habrá que borrarla si no se esclarece su estatus, si puedes hacerlo tú mejor, saludos.--Rocastelo(talk) 21:48, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Curioso, será que lo hago tan bien que me ha tomado por nativa ;-D. Bueno, ya le he dejado una nota avisándole que no lo soy, no me gusta ir fardando por ahí, gracias por avisarme. Anna 00:37, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Image:Microsoft Sign on German campus.jpg[edit]

For the same reason one cannot take a picture of Mickey Mouse and say you have thus avoided infringement, a picture of a logo or trademark is still unfree (that is, it cannot be used to identify with a product or coporation without in fact being used as a trademark.) - Amgine 01:43, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

I frankly don't care about the "freedom of panorama". Use is as trademark. Luckily I'm pretty much completely uninvolved in the community at commons. - Amgine 18:43, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
Hi, I'm the one who took the picture. This picture is not exactly comparable to Mickey Mouse. Or well, it depends: If Mickey Mouse is a fixed part of a given panorama, then yes :) I crawled through a lot of legal text to finally find that this picture falls under the German freedom of panorama (see definition here).

Re: Index images[edit]

Hey Platonides. Thanks for helping out!

Re User:Brtoken: I think the message you left on this user's talk page is a good one. It won't always be that everything can be resolved immediately. Asking the uploader about the purpose is good. The images say "for wikipedia" but they're not being used anywhere. Images can be nominated for deletion for failing to meet commons:project scope which is pretty much what you would say for images that make you say, "er, what?" (assuming licensing is OK). You could perhaps be a tiny bit more polite in future though. :P Sometimes (or, often) users are very concentrated on their own project and don't put any effort into good image practice here. What might seem baffling could actually have some strange use (although not always, which is why we ask...).

For "permission from X" claims, what you have done is correct although I agree not always appropriate. It depends a bit on how you judge the validity of the claim. If you think there's no chance it's true then tagging this way is OK. If you think it's possible it's true then maybe just ask the uploader for further information. Usually they won't have the "right" permission. Ask them to use something from Email templates (fill in a specific license) and forward the permission to . Then we can use {{permissionOTRS}} on the image with the correct license tag. Alternatively they can post the information on the image/category talk page or a user sub page. But if they do this it still needs to be that "strong" permission, "OK for Wikipedia" is NOT OK!

You can make a template to use to express this if you wish, but it might be hard to condense like this~ I also find that users tend to ignore generic templates as opposed to personal, specific requests for information.

You can either follow up with the users about what they should be doing (remember they often reply on their own talk page too), or else just firmly direct them to the Commons:Help desk.

stargate glyphs[edit]

Thank you for the usefull question. The stargate glyph is from English Wikipedia and all glyphs at are from English wiki. There should be NCT tempate at English wiki, but I do not know actual situation. I have uploaded it 1 year ago. Please help. --Snek01 20:53, 3 August 2006 (UTC)


I think all glyphs should be transfered from en-wiki as is (especially pegasus ones i'll need soon on fr), and then create separate transparent ones, or event better svg ones...

Modifing the 01 glyph which is used on many wikis is not a good idea IMHO, even if transparency is...

Red Rooster[edit]

I've seen you are correcting the text-content of my uploaded Images. Do you use a bot for this? I have uploaded the Pictures of Category:MKL - Complete pages: Book 3 to Category:MKL - Complete pages: Book 12 by error. Could you help me to correct this? Please tell me how you do that mass-tagging of pictures, because I have several other Projects where this technique would save much hours. Red Rooster 16:59, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for answering me so fast. The mistake I have made is that all pictures of the 3rd book are uploaded with the template of the 12th book. I use commonist to upload the pictures and I don't see any way in this tool to load the pictures up with the right parameters. Red Rooster 18:05, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

How can I use the Javascript? I really don't know much about Java. If I could use your script it would save you a lot of time in correcting my pictures. Red Rooster 18:10, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

No, unfortunally I don't know how to configure the commonist. If you could help me a bit, I would be very thankful! Red Rooster 18:14, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

I simply downloaded and installed it on my Windows. I have no idea how to configure it... Red Rooster 18:20, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

You are right. I simply name the Images correctly and then I press upload. But if you tell me what I have to change I will do it instantly!
  • The first thing I have to say is, that I will upload the missing pictures as soon as possible. Please continue to inform me which pictures are missing.
  • The second thing is that I think the {{information}} template really not nessecary for my projects. If you would create a user friendly tool for uploading books (perhaps based on the commonist) you would help much users (like me) working on wikisource projects.
  • If you could tell me how I get your java-script working (which you are using for retagging my pictures) I could get other books working that I have already uploaded.

Red Rooster 18:42, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Ok, I have now added this script and it seems to work fine. Now I can tag my uploaded images by myself. Thank you a lot! Red Rooster 19:08, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Now I have to bother you once more (sorry for that). The second button returns me an error (as I tried it on the 4th book). Do I make a mistake? The Error is:

Fehler: getParamValue is not defined
Zeile: 49

I use Firefox. What must I do with this second java code? Red Rooster 20:17, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

I don't know why, but the second button still doesn't work. Could it be that there is still code missing? Red Rooster 20:50, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

sobre Logo_izquierda_unida_2006.png[edit]

hola, gracias por tu consejo sobre la imagen Logo_izquierda_unida_2006.

Pero sobre la situación de copyright de los logotipos de partidos políticos hay una flexibilidad, ya que son entidades de dominio público. Por ello, en alemania el SPD, grünen y la CDU dicen que es público ( o en francia que es GNU General Public License (

Por lo tanto es un caso similar al alemán, registrado por el partido pero de dominio público.

Hola Platonides, como he visto que has respondido a mi mensaje Boardvote_intro_outdated queria hacerte una pregunta al respecto. Lmbuga creó la navegación para saltar entre idiomas (así podría cambiarse de idioma en el caso de no poder hacerlo en las preferencias), pero surgió un problema. Con el wikicode la presentación de todas las lenguas era correcta menos la entrada en inglés, poniendo los enlaces como unha clase externa en la entrada en inglés funciona pero no en el resto de las páginas. ¿Conoces algunha solución o sabes de algún atributo class que permita corregir eso? Gracias. --Prevert(talk) 21:37, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

esfera armilar[edit]

Hola Platonides, estoy algo perdida, me gustaría que me dijeras si he subido bien la imagen Image:Armillary sphere escorial.jpg o si hay algún problema. No sé si lo habitual es que comente aquí o en my talk Mercewiki 11:17, 9 September 2006 (UTC)


Eu não lhe entendi totalmente pero io tengo tentado contribuir da melhor forma pero a commons não tem em minha lingüa. es um caso sério!

Hola, tengo que hacerte una consulta. Tras solicitar a dos usuarios unas fotos de Maradona en flickr, y que me dieran la licencia en forma expresa, las subí aclarando y citando esa autorización. Algunos usuarios me aclararon que debía enviar esa autorización a permissions(arroba)wikimedia(punto)com. Me indicaron también, que me enviarían un ticket OTRS que debía colocar junto a la cita de la autorización en el archivo. Les solicité a los autores que me envien nuevamente la autorización, pero esta vez a mi correo electrónico (habían sido gestionadas por el correo interno del sitio). Uno me respondió en forma inmediata (el otro todavía no), y yo reenvie ese correo a la dirección nombrada antes, sin agregar absolutamente nada (me habían dicho que simplemente lo reenvíe). El problema es que a casi dos semanas, no he recibido ningún tipo de respuesta y quería saber si el trámite demora mucho tiempo o si yo he realizado algún paso en forma incorrecta. Muchas gracias. --Sking 19:02, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Gracias por la respuesta, lo he enviado como me indicaste y me contestaron en el mismo día. Tengo una última duda, me respondieron "The original email had ticket number 2006082910006209", ¿es eso lo que debo agregar en el sumario de la imagen? en el caso afirmativo, ¿de qué forma es conveniente agregarlo?. Muchas Gracias. --Sking 19:21, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Messina Straits The future of water power plants.jpg[edit]

That image was released under GFDL OTRS#2006090710007873 and OTRS#2006090810010894.

(provo anche con l'italiano che secondo me è più chiaro)

L'immagine è stata rilasciata in GFDL OTRS#2006090710007873 da quelli del pontediarchimede. Il permesso è contenuto nel jpeg allegato alla mail (vedi anche OTRS#2006090810010894). User_talk:Edd48 mi ha pregato di contattarti e di dirtelo. . Ciao, DracoRoboter 10:26, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. I will add that OTRS myself. Please check if I made some mistake. Ciao. Grazie per l'attenzione, speravo che l'avviso lo avrebbe messo User_talk:Edd48 che evidentemente non è capace. metto io stesso il permesso, avvertimi perfavore se trovi che si sia qualcosa di sbagliato. PS sono a conoscenza del fatto che l'it:inquisizione spagnola è terminata parecchio tempo fa :)

Strange function[edit]

Hi I am just wondering what this lonely function does [2]? I don't see any script called by default that uses this function. Arnomane 16:53, 15 September 2006 (UTC)


Hola Platonides, te escribo para aclarar lo referente a las imágenes de la PEGI. Bueno, esos gráficos los hice en el CorelDraw!(c), después los exporté a la extensión .png, modificándolos en lo posible para que no sean idénticos a los oficiales, pero sí manteniendo cierta similitud. El fin de crearlos es meramente para usarlos como dibujos representativos de los logos de clasificación que usa la PEGI, de otra manera creo que quedaría inconcluso el artículo al no identificarse los certificados que maneja dicha organización de manera visual. En esta dirección[3] puedes ver las imágenes que usan en la enwiki y que si son los diseños originales que usa la PEGI, ejemplo parecido son los logos que hice también para la BBFC. Agradezco tu interés y la bienvenida que me otorgaste, hasta luego.Oscar Flores 19:25, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Copyrights category:Feria de Ayerbe[edit]

Se entiende por "meras fotografías" a las que se limitan a recoger de forma mecánica, automática, común o normal, la realidad del modo en que se presenta. Esto es, las que carecen de esfuerzo creativo o intelectual.

Párrafo del resumen de la conferencia "Propiedad Intelectual y uso social y académico de la Fotografía", que ofreció Fernando Bondía Román, profesor especialista en derechos de autor

Personalmente yo lo entiendo así y puse la plantilla que entendí se acercaba más, pero si, de todas formas considerais que no se pueden poner en dominio público, aceptaré, sin más discusión, el que sean borradas the preceding unsigned comment is by Dionisio (talk • contribs) 18 oct 2006 14:44

Podría encontrar otras, y de hecho las subiré. El problema está en que seguirán siendo igual de originales (por ser tetimonio de una época pero sin carácter artístico), o estás dejaran de serlo, porque la feria de Ayerbe era año tras año igual y es muy difícil distinguir en que año están hechas. Esta fotografía Image:Ayerbe feria 000.jpg, hecha por es:Santiago Ramón y Cajal en 1892, es igual de original que las hechas en 1929-1930 por Ricardo Compairé

Ayuda imagenes[edit]

Hola, te pido ayuda en este tema ya que sos de habla castellana: en estos dias se borraron varias imagenes por Nilfanion porque no me habia llegado la licensia para usarlas. Hoy me llego y la mande por mail a segun me solicito Alhen. Me comunique con Alhen pero ahora me habla en ingles en lugar de español, no se por que, pero bueno, la cuestion es que quisiera que se restituyan esas imagenes ya que no estoy seguro de tenerlas a todos para volver a subirlas. El mail con la autorizacion ya esa alla. Me podrias ayudar con esto? El que las saco de circulacion es Nilfanion, pero como el mail con el OK ya esta alla (contiene la licencia y autorizacion) yase podria retaurarlas. Muchas gracias. Saludos. --Fede5 04:14, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Saludos platonides[edit]

Hola platonides, te escribo porque veo que te has molestado conmigo, precisamente estaba tratando de solucionar o que me guiaran porque yo no he creado esta discusion de mala gana, solo pensaba que si yo modificaba una imagen, con respecto a la verdadera pues esa imagen sería de mi creacion por lo tanto la podria poner bajo esa licencia. Pero parece que no es así, o bueno eso es lo que supongo porque aquí en vez de explicarte como hacer las cosas mejores, como el amigo chess creo que trato de hacer una vez, te dan de hostias y te dicen o explicas o lo borro!! en tono amenazante, y creo que esa no debe ser la idea. Yo en Wikipedia he hecho colaboraciones a veces buenas y a veces mejores, y estoy cada día esforzandome más en algo que como a ti no genera ninguna ganancia. Yo no estoy cobrando comision por ningun articulo montado ni tampoco por alguna imagen, así que ya por ese sentido no violo ningun derecho de autor. Claro que sé que existen otras cosas que debo de respetar, pero creo que si "DIALOGAS" y me explicas de estoy haciendo mal, lo podré hacer mejor, y guiar nuestra relacion en este sitio a una amistad que creeme que te va a gustar, porque yo soy muy consecuente en lo que hago y te podría ayudar mucho.

No te tomes esto como alguna crítica mala, ni un inicio de pelea, que yo no quiero aqui pelear con nadie amigo, solo quiero que me orienten de una manera constructiva, y confio en tu experiencia aquí para que me guíes y no violar nada mas en mi estancia aqui en este sitio.

Saludos amigo, espero contar con tu ayuda, y bueno espero limar cualquier rozadura contigo.

Non commercial[edit]

You can delete the images that you wrote me for two reasons: they are not used at this time (someone deleted the text where I had putted them fwe weekes ago beacause he think that what I wrote was not interesting) and I don't want to licensed them for commercial use for everyone (so if I can't licensed for commercial use only for wikipedia and wikimedia let delete it!).

Bye --Nicolaesse 13:45, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

You are right, they are only two diagrams and I don't think someone should use them for making money. I will relase them onto pubblic domani because you were a gentleman and you ask me before delete them. Anyway I don't think I will upload my pictures on Commons again because I had uploaded many few weeks ago and someone delete them without tell me anything because there were a mistake on the licence. I don't want to work for someone profit and I uploaded the images only for wikipedia and only for free project. At Commons they said me that if I upload pictures on commons I can only choose for relasere them on commercial use at all. I'm so tired and little angry to this point so I hope what I've wrote here have a sense. Thanks. --Nicolaesse 00:07, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the message but I still think that I don't want to upload them again with commercial use licence, maybe I just have to think some days about but now I'm not sure I want to concede the commercial use.

For the format I used I'm sorry but I can't make vectorial images (I don't know how to make them). Thanks, bye. --Nicolaesse 20:23, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Template:End of copyvios/es et al[edit]

I noticed the corrections on the template, thanks. :)

While I do speak a little Spanish (among other languages) I'm not quite fluent enough to do a really good job of translation, though I've been told that making some sort of attempt is very important. I've got a personal project going at User:Kylu/templates where I want to add somewhat-understandable translations to each of the templates. Since you speak a few languages yourself, I'd appreciate it if you'd be willing to help! If you see any more translations that need tweaking, please feel free to do so. :)

Wikimedia logo mosaic[edit]


Please do not replace non-unique images with one image or something like that. This will ruin some of my and most of Waugsberg's work. I belive in the end we will not have enough pictures for the mosaic, so some of them will stay non-unique and they are already in place. I know you have reverted your first attempt, but I'm just afraid you are still working on it ;)

Best regards, Nux (talk··dyskusja) 16:28, 6 November 2006 (UTC).

Yes, I've made some edits that were not to put in images but to smooth it up and compose images (like moving the cake near to the coffee ;)). I've also seen that Waugsberg have done some similar moves. So it wouldn't be a good idea just to shuffle this randomly by color. --Nux (talk··dyskusja) 00:25, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Re:Juan sibaja - Solidarios[edit]

A mí tampoco me convence, las subidas de este señor son inútiles y extrañas, la primera la imagen de un balón que parece tomado de cualquier página de internet, la segunda "asinprosa.jpg" un texto, al parecer un ensayo personal, y ese afiche que si no es diseño suyo tendrá copyright, no está enlazado a ninguna página y él no tiene cuenta en wiki. No parece muy creíble la licencia, mas bien da la impresión que la eligió al azar. Anna 20:56, 28 November 2006 (UTC)


Hola Platonides, es tarde y quizás no tenga la mente fresca, pero estoy sorprendido. He visto que has bloqueado a un tal Aquilez. La cuestión es que te agradecería que me ayudases a corroborar que hay 2 usuarios Aquilez en Commons (probablemente sean la misma persona).

Copyright issues[edit]

While trying to understand what is implied, I incidentally found some pages in the Wikipedia discussion site which, though not related strictly to images seem to make some light on the issue. I am raising these questions because if I request somebody to grant a licence, I should be able to explain exactly what the implications are. The persons to whom I am talking (or writing) are not lawyers, and some of them may be in remote countries where they have no detailed knowledge of international copyright laws.

What I seem to have understood and I would kindly request you to correct me is the following:

Wikipedia simply requests a licence for the use of the picture which is actually not a free gift of all rights to the picture tto the entire humanity. That means that the picture can be used freely by anyone, without having to pay royalties. However, a license is just for use and does not make anybody else the owner of the image. It does not give the right to anybody else to register a copyright of the picture whether in its initial form or with any kind of modifications. As a consequence, the licence does not relieve any user of the free use license of the obligation of acknowledging the ownership (authorship or however it is called) of the person who has issued the image. If so requested by the granter of the license, the picture may be freely used but may have to indicate: picture taken by Mr. XYZ or any other indication requested by the author.

If this is true, I would make a statement about this to the persons from whom I request the license, so that they understand. Simply indicating GFDL or some other acronym without any explanation simply scares people off. You may not believe it, but in this modern world, many people are scared off by lawyers and legal issues. People are willing to help, but want to avoid getting into the legal trouble GFDL might imply.

I would appreciate if you would confirm this interpretation or enlighten me about details I may not have understood, so that I can explain these conditions to others.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Afil 20:42, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for your answer. I hope that I understood most of it. I will do my best to comply and if I don't it won't be because I didn't try to. I am sorry to have bothered you, but I really was extremely confused. You have taken the extremely out of it. Again thank you.

I started out intending to dual-license everything, but I didn't want to use the 2.5 or 3.0 versions of the license so I threw up a tag I figured would work.

The extra "0" on my .png's[edit]

I use a program called Arcsoft Photostudio for all the images i create, and i upload them through Firefox. I assume the only problems are with my fish distribution maps? or is it the fish diagrams as well (which are jpgs)? I'm not really sure what the problem is (i'm not sure what you mean exactly by the 0 or whatever), but if you can tell me what to do to fix the problem, i will. Also is it possible the problem stems from the original map i use? The link to it is on all my fish distribution maps if you wanted to check that out. Cheers Kare Kare 11:35, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Its version I don't have any other programs for this kind of work, so maybe i should get another one. I don't suppose you know of any decent freeware photoshop type programs? Cheers Kare Kare 12:16, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Actually, is there a problem with me uploading any future files as jpgs? Do you think that would solve the problem?
I have just uploaded another PNG:, does this have the stupid /0? I can't see it at the moment, and where should i be looking to see where the offending /0 would occur? Kare Kare 11:29, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
Ok, i've saved one in MS Paint and uploaded it (yeah its a duplicate) Is it still the same? Kare Kare 11:46, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
Hey yeah, the file name is a .PNG instead of a .png (I have no idea whether that is significant :p). Anyway, thanks for helping me through that, at least i know what to do from now on to get a valid image! Cheers Kare Kare 11:54, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

This image was made by Pavel Vinogradov 18-05-2007. He personally gave his pictures to me and authorized to use them on the condition that I write on the photo his authorship (and I have done it

Author Pavel Vinogradov

). Why do you want to delete this image? It is used in paper about Egor Shevchenko. What license should I write at this picture and similar? Did I choose incorrect license for this case? Dinamik 09:54, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Is it allowed to Pavel Vinogradov to send me e-mail in Russian (it is my and Pavel Vinogradov's native language) or the only permissible language is English? Can I redirect Pavel Vinogradov's mail directly to or I should write some comments into redirected mail? Could you give an example (link) of using "id to put on the image with the OTRS tag"?

En ciertos svg están definidos por lo que creo que son coordenadas: Image:IPA in IPA.svg & Image:RPGA international.svg.

Not a copyright violation[edit]

I have recently uploaded the file dots.png. I did't steal anybody's work, that image was from and it had a free licence (don't remember the exact name) and you can check anytime. I tried to transfer it from to commons but it didn't work and I need that image for an article on So please don't delete it :) Wicked01 10:37, 4 September 2007 (UTC)


I don't know how to do that. I did highlight the source, the user who uploaded it but how do I show the image of the licence? could help me if u really wanted that. Wicked01 10:43, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

I want my map deleted[edit]

Hi Platonides, i would like my map - Image:Chennai schematic map.svg to be deleted. The map is about to be used in bus stops in my city and i dont want the svg to be in public. i will upload a png version instrad. or please tell me what procedure to follow to have it removed at the earliest. Due to this i am not able to work on my project --Planemad 11:07, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

==Chennai Map==

You dont understand, the organisation im working with doesnt want the source map to be available on the net. i dont get it, as the author, dont i have a right to pull the map off wikipedia? the map is no longer under a free license, i can no longer permit derivative works of it--Planemad 10:54, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

ok ,so what do you suggest i do to have it removed. i cant work on the maps for the city transport organisation because the source is available on wikipedia and anyone can use it for commercial purposes. doesnt the uploader have the right to delete his content? --Planemad 11:02, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
like i had mentioned, i have been asked by the en:Chennai MTC to create route maps for them. the svg is the actual source for the map and thus anyone else will be able to download it and make commercial use of it by modifying it. while i am doing this free of charge for the organisation, there could sone be hundreds of others who will be trying to make money out of my work --Planemad 11:10, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
thats like asking why people buy encyclopedias when theres wikipedia. if someone were to modify my map, like improve upon the work, i dont know how i can prove that its a derivative of my work. they could argue that the idea was mine, but the work was theirs, and in India no one gives a shit about intellectual property. i have put in a lot of effort into this map and i dont want to see it being stolen. i feel as if i have made a BIG mistake by uploading the svg. and you still havent answered my question, as the author and uploader dont i have a right to pull my file off the server?

Image:Flag of Croatia.svg[edit]

Ok you have locked the file, but ... why have you locked the file at the version done by Minestrone. I do not ask this question because my version is in the "play" but rather because there are dependent images that are not synchronized to Flag of Croatia (version by Minestrone) and are synchronized with Flag of Croatia (version by Rainman). Those dependent images are Naval Ensign of Croatia, Naval Jack of Croatia and Civil Ensign of Croatia (all sVG). If Minestrone is not capable of following the rules of synchronization of all of the dependent images then his version should not be the one which will be left locked (even if this period is till 2008-01-09 21:20h). When I decided to went into this venture, I was warned that before changing anything I must synchronize the dependent images properly. -- Rainman 18:14, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Please... If you do not want to read the entire discussion about the Flag why suggesting anything that "supports" Minestrone's claims. Namely that "proof" you gratiously communicated to me is an oppinion of a ONE flag manufacturer (productor). The flag is red-white-and-blue and not red-white-and-dark-navy-blue. Thank the Gods and the Universe that United Nations exist. Look at what has my representatives, the representatives of Croatia acomplished at UN. They have acomplished something that I couldn't have done in a million years, because the Wikipedia must push for a compromise, and I must compromise with Minestrone (who offends me constantly, and calls me a lunatic), I must compromise with those sort of people (Minestorne included, you - for the time being excluded), I am forced to compromise the truth and Croatian laws and regulations because Lupo is pushing me and I expect every other admin to push me and push me to give up on the Flag issue. I will not give up as long there exist a single drop of blood in my body AND as long there are people and institutions that support the Law, standing by the Law's decree's and by the sources that are validified at the highest places like this one. If you are interested look at this proof and see that the Croatian Flag is not and shall never be the same "blue" version as the French Republic Flag. If you want there is even available a higher resolution photo. This photo has been taken at the UN building, on the January 3rd, 2008. and shows Croatian Flag as it should be represented everywhere. Because the man holding a folder is making a shadow on the Flag only a small portion shows most clearly that the color is blue and the same kind of a blue that is on the 1st, 3rd and 5th small shield of the Crown that is on top of the Croatian coat of arms (red-white checkered). Please, if you do not want to participate in the discussion, this is fine. If you want to lock the file - it is again more - FINE, but do not say to me, Oh there is evidence that Minestorne's version should be the final one, not after he insults me on every step of the compromisal path and furthermore he (Minestrone) is ruining any chances of a compromise because he darkenes up the blue on the Flag even further than possibly imaginable and further than Lupo. -- Rainman 03:07, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Quick delete Gadget[edit]

Hi, I'm having a problem with the QuickDelete gadget on Safari and was wondering if you could help. I'm thrown a "Can't find variable QuickDeleteLoadCount". This is because the variable is never truly defined. So the code starts with: if ((typeof x == 'undefined') || !QuickDeleteLoadCount)I'm not sure what "x" is here, but it seems like a weird variable to test. Perhaps this needs to be QuickDeleteLoadCount ? Also, if the variable is undefined, then it never actually defines the variable (Apparently QuickDeleteLoadCount++ does not count as defining on Safari). A simple var QuickDeleteLoadCount=0; after the initial if statement should suffice. Ergo I propose to change the beginning of the code to:

if ((typeof QuickDeleteLoadCount == 'undefined') ) { // Load functions only once
var QuickDeleteLoadCount = 0;


Similar changes might be required in the standard QuickDelete.js ? TheDJ 13:34, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Deletion without any message on my talk page?[edit]

Hi Platonides, I've noticed you've deleted some images I uploaded. Probably there was something wrong with the tag or anything like that. You stated that the images were "all rights reserved by Flickr". Well, to be honest I agreed with the author of this work on publication and he actually changed the tag on flickr. So what exactly was the problem?

Thanks for helping me out a little bit.

deprecated function in your monobook.js[edit]

Dear user, I noticed that you use the includePage function in your monobook.js page.

This function is now obsolete, as the importScript function was introduced with rev:35064 to the MediaWiki Javascript core library wikibits.js. It also keeps track of already imported files.

To allow us to remove includePage from Mediawiki:Common.js I'd kindly ask you to replace its use with importScript (same syntax!). Thanks! --Dschwen 17:03, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I read this comment by you: "I find strange though that it was made with Dom functions as i was told some time ago at #wikipedia-tech that some browsers didn't load it in that case." This is somewhat true. It has taken considerable time of several en.wikipedia editors to find code that worked on every single browser (see the list). And likely some VERY old browsers might still not support this. However the browsers that do not support this likely don't support most of the actual loaded scripts either, so it is not as much of a problem as it appears to be at first. Also, includePage used document.write, which is actually very bad, because the JS documentation does not specify WHERE you are writing, and especially with scripts loaded from <head, this can become problematic. document.write in combination with Safari for instance causes problems like these TheDJ 20:05, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Wiki-bot is broken and has been kicked from #wikimedia-commons[edit]

Every so often today the bot pop's up with some comment or another. Most of them are something about not being PNG format, or empty file, or not accepted file type. All of them have been wrong. The only one message that was right was when it suggested a PDF was out of scope - which I'm curious is to how it would know that. Regardless, since 95% of the messages were false positives, I've kicked the bot. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 00:07, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi Platonides, the original of the featured image Snipe-fly Rhagio scolopaceus copulation.jpg is lost, but it isn't listed on your page, so I hope that you still have a copy of this specific one. If yes, could you reupload it please? That would be really great as the author doesn't store any copy of this image on his computer no more (he regularly deletes big original files after he uploaded them to Commons [6]). Many thanks --:bdk: 13:25, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

My Bot[edit]


I really can't explain why my bot an year ago has driven mad in that way. The time is too much and the code of the bot is changed a lot. The only thing that I can suppose is that it has happened is that I've found some list of images without license and tried to run the bot parsing that list. Indeed I've found other images with that same problem (and reverted) in the time before and after the one you linked me. That's not its normal behavior, so I cannot explain to you exactly what happened. I can only assure you that this doesn't happen normally and that the bot should also have warned the original uploaders and it's strange that nobody have seen that before.

Sorry for the problems, but I cannot know much other that this.

If you have some ideas / suggestions / other, feel free to ask me or to explain me your theories in order to fix that problem (that I think is now fixed, but who knows?).

Oh well, it seems that you deleted my pics, but, I bet you won't find them on the net so easily in that format, resolution. How did you check those informations, through metadata? Eduemoni (talk) 22:00, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

How did you check information about these pics, through Wiki-Gallery? Or through metadata?
Then how can I be sure of what you've made? I did not copy those photos, like I stated before, you WON'T find them in these resolution throughout the internet, because it is not replicated. Eduemoni (talk) 22:09, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Do you want a formal request? Like LeToya authorizing me, to use these images here? Or what? Eduemoni (talk) 22:14, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Do I need to deal with that? OK, I'll, but, why don't you take a look at Category:Beyoncé_Knowles, everything there is fake, much more than mine. Eduemoni (talk) 22:24, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Better? Nope, I'm not as fake as these photos that were explicitly taken from WireImages and GettyImages. Eduemoni (talk) 22:30, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Where is my template? For uploading images?
So, what about it now? Image:LeToyab.jpg and Image:LeToya.jpg amIdoinrite? Eduemoni (talk) 23:22, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
It is not the same photo, neither it is unfree, stop deleting my pics, they are in conformation with wiki's guideline for using pics from Flickr, and I don't want to engage you in an admin war, by reporting you and your misconduct. You are NOT using any common sense, and misleading your admin powers. Eduemoni (talk) 23:31, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Chandrayaan 1 Video[edit]

Hi, thanks for deleting that as I was about to delete the same. Can you please tell me how can I convert the video to OGV format? I used MediaCoder and selected Theora format and OGG container but when I upload it is showing MP4 format. The file cant be seen using VLC (only sound comes). Please guide me and let me know how to convert it to OGV --[[User_Talk:Anuraagvaidya|Anuraag Vaidya]] (talk) 17:47, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

File:MS Ecstasy April 2004.jpg[edit]

Hi Platonides, I just came across the image above and it is listed as missing source information because apparently the author is not named in the {{PD-author}}-template. --Matt314 (talk) 06:19, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

For me that is perfectly fine, I was just looking for a way of getting it out of that "missing source" category. The template is not really made for a change like this, but it will take care of the missing source template. --Matt314 (talk) 04:59, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Wiki-bot got kicked (again) from #wikimedia-commons[edit]

Oddly enough it is the exact same thing that I posted about a few months ago. Someone was uploading a mass of SVG files, I guess and it just kept repeating (at least a dozen times in a row, if not more) "Warning: 15_white,_brown_rounded_rectangle.svg is not a SVG file (not XML 1.1)" (As an example). I know _why_ the bot is checking, but the images work, so.. I'm not sure if it is helping. Thanks --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 08:19, 11 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi Platonides,

Are images from Baidu wiki permitted to be uploaded unto Wikimedia Commons? (for example, this image.)--Jose77 (talk) 21:08, 23 February 2009 (UTC)


I've undone your edit because it generates a runtime error "Error: document.getElementById("mw-upload-permitted").firstChild.firstChild.nextSibling is null". Please test changes to site-wide scripts extra well. Besides, please note that the separator for some languages is not the comma. Lupo 23:31, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

No try{} block, please; it'll always fail. Take a look at the XHTML source. I don't think there is such a node anymore. Possibly they changed the page generation a little at the server side, and thus it fails now. It can be fixed (I think) by omitting the ".nextSibling". Current structure is
<div id="mw-upload-permitted"><p>Permitted file types: png, gif, jpg, jpeg, xcf, pdf, mid, ogg, ogv, svg, djvu.
Lupo 23:40, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Right, the link it is. I've added some alternate "comma" characters such that it also works for Arabic and far-eastern languages. Lupo 19:22, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

TinEye gadget[edit]

Hi -

Just ran across the TinEye gadget you wrote, and ported it for en.wikipedia: w:User:Twp/tineye.js. I was curious about the reason for the 300px thumbnailing; did you do that to reduce bandwidth demands on, or because it produces better matches, or for some other reason?

Hola Platonides, pues la verdad es que no sé qué decirte. La postura de la fundación respecto de {{PD-Art}} personalmente no me gusta. Vale que la LPI española es abusiva. Pero la solución contra las leyes abusivas no es ignorarlas (o al menos eso es lo que me gustaría creer). Pero creo que la postura de la fundación es taxativa. Quizá se pudiera hacer una consulta en CT:L, pero no confío mucho en que se llegue a ninguna otra conclusión que la ya expresada :-( Creo que no he respondido a tu pregunta, pero no se me ocurre otra cosa. Saludos --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 21:06, 4 May 2009 (UTC)


Saludos, Platónides. Perdona que te moleste, pero me dijeron que me podrías ayudar, ya que eres uno de los pocos en commons que hablas español. Verás, hace unos días, el usuario Elmiky ha estado subiendo unas fotos de luchadores mexicanos, de las cuales creo que tienen copyright, pero tampoco sé si las ha podido sacar él muy cerca del ring.

Could you please upload the files which are not on Commons, but public domain in Canada here: wikilivres:Category:From Hermitage torrent?

Illegal uploads[edit]

Do you know that it is illegal to upload uncropped PD-Art images? Please be aware that you work could become vain because of this.

Also, why did you rip off my cropped and precisely color-corrected images? They are much more useful that these illegal uncropped versions. 4649 06:05, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

I'll eventually fix and remove frames from Hermitage-related images, so please go ahead with your uploads, just try not to upload framed images when there is a frame-less image of same source. Also please add {{Non-free frame}} to these framed images, so I can easily find them.
File:Monet,_Claude_-_Waterloo_Bridge._Effect_of_Fog.jpg are not a problem, that were with another images and another user. Very sorry about that.
Also I give you a hint of good description: when you look into the source of this page you'll find a good description template. I wrote the website author about {{O_c}} problem, but still got no reply. Now please replace it with {{Oil on canvas}}. 4649 02:07, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Platonides!
Tip: Add categories to your images

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

Here's how:

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


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

[[Category:Category name]]

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

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

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

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

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

File:Comet SOHO-6.jpg[edit]

May I ask why you deleted the image File:Comet SOHO-6.jpg? I am well aware that NASA/ESA images from the SOHO spacecraft are not allowed on commons, as they are not free for commercial prurposes. However, this image was from the LASCO group of the US Naval Laboratory. To make sure that this image is free, I asked them, and I did get the confirmation that this image is in the public domain. All this was noted on the talk page of the image. (If you have the chance to see the deleted page somehow, please take a look there...) So why is there the need to delete this image? --Vesta (talk) 21:25, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]


Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.
