Sig-pro-SP2022-p1030058.jpg[edit]

The photo you have authored titled Sig-pro-SP2022-p1030058.jpg has an incorrect description. The photo not of a Sig SP2022. Note that an SP2022 does not have a take-down lever, but has an extended slide stop that doubles as a takedown pin. Your photo clearly shows a separate slide stop and takedown lever. The photo appears to be of a Sig Sauer P226.

Copyright request[edit]

Dear Rama,

First of all, I just wanted to say thank you for your work in making pictures available on Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to use one of your photos in a publication I am working on at the moment, and since it will be produced by a charity organization my royalties are not large (and would quickly be swallowed up if I had to pay for images).

My publisher, however, has requested that I confirm with you that you are willing to give me permission to use the following:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Zakkur_Stele_0154.jpg

Are you fine with this? Could you please contact me at achalmers@adelaide.tabor.edu.au

Once again, thanks for your work and I look forward to hearing back from you.

All the best,

Dr Aaron Chalmers

Dear Rama,

I'm working for a french historical revue. For a an article on Robespierre I would like to use your photo of the bust of him by Deseine taken at Château de Vizille. Could you contact me soon at : jsuarez@sophiapublications.fr ? I wish you a merry christmas.

Trying to contact Rama[edit]

Rama-

I would like to use a modified version of your photograph "Japanese Arrowheads of Various Functions" in my unpublished Master's thesis from the University of Nevada, Reno. I have cited you based on the license agreement. Can you please provide me with a year the photograph was taken or uploaded to add to my references, and perhaps a first and last name so that the citation meets the requirements of my University? Thank you. Email is the best way to contact me. Please respond to mrlenzi@hotmail.com.

Permission to reprint photo of Pazuzu[edit]

Dear Rama,

I would like to use the Pazuzu photo (on black background) in my ebook, which is of a scholarly nature. Do I need to do anything to secure permission and how should the photo be attributed? Thank you! Jodell — Preceding unsigned comment added by JodOns (talk • contribs) 03:04, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Greetings, and thank you for your interest! The image can be used freely as long as its credits mention "Rama, Cc-by-sa-2.0-fr". More information here, but do not hesitate to ask further should anything need clarification. Cheers! Rama (talk) 10:29, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you!!~Jodell Onstott

Chamois ou bouquetin ?[edit]

Bonjour Rama.
Cette photo File:Chamois mp3h2317.jpg me semble représenter davantage un jeune bouquetin qu'un chamois. Pour éviter les confusions quand elle est réutilisée, ne pense-tu pas qu'il vaudrait mieux demander son renommage ? Par contre, elle est dans la bonne catégorie.
Cordialement, --Arcyon37 (talk) 13:24, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Merci beaucoup pour cette correction fort utile, j'ai renommé l'image. Bonne continuation ! Rama (talk) 13:59, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Background for "Copyvio: proprietary kerning algo. leaked in file."?[edit]

Hello.

If you recall deleting a raft of "traffic signs manual" related images on or about 9th February 2016 with the above tag would you please be so kind as to reveal your reasoning &/or provide a pointer to the relevant discussion. In particular, I was the uploader of (now obviously deleted) File:UK-Traffic-signs-manual-chapter-03-Page-22-Image-01.png, File:UK-Traffic-signs-manual-chapter-03-Page-22-Image-02.png and File:UK-Traffic-signs-manual-chapter-03-Page-22-Image-03.png

I am not at all questioning your judgement or necessarily want the images resurrected. My only involvement was in extracting these images for layout demonstration purposes on English wikisource and was unaware of this form of encumbrance. As the images were drawn from a PDF already present on Commons: File:UK Traffic Signs Manual - Chapter 3 Regulatory Signs. 2008 (Second Impression 2008).pdf (in point of detail all three were drawn from page 24 of that document) I rather fail to comprehend why the PDF is not also subject to removal upon identical reasoning.

Thanks for your time. AuFCL (talk) 00:15, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

I would also like to see where you have communicated with the English Wikisource community about the deletions of files in use. As an administrator, you have a broad responsibility to the community at large, not a narrow focus on single issue. There was neither urgency nor privacy issues to required deletion of the files without consultation. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:35, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
@AuFCL the kerning (i.e. variable distance between letters) on these panels is based on a non-Free Frutiger font; hence, they contain proprietary intellectual property and cannot, as such, be published under a Free licence. This is of course highly technical and hard to spot (I did not myself, my attention was drawn on the issue), so there is nothing improper in what you did. I think that if these signs were recreated with the fonts implemented as paths, it would not be a problem. Rama (talk) 07:22, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for a gracious response. As you indeed suspected I had no idea of such considerations. Thanks also for suggesting an alternate approach. AuFCL (talk) 08:46, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
I am further embarrassed to find that—now that I know the terms to search for—the user for whom I prepared the original demonstration was aware of this matter as of 1st February. Thanks again for your actions. AuFCL (talk) 09:36, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
@billinghurst the mission of Commons is to constitute a repository of Free content: it is not ancillary to other projects, and there is an emphasis on Free for a good reason. If anything, my "broad responsibility to the community at large" is to ensure that their work is not jeopardised by a creep of non-Free content. Rama (talk) 07:22, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
And nothing that I said is contra to the free content component, my message was in the paragraph in its entirety. The scope of Commons is cited at Commons:Project scope and you will see it is a two part statement, not solely the one part that you cited to me. The message is not whether the files should have been deleted, it is the process and discussions to undertake. It is the consideration that administrators here should have on a crosswiki project where the images are stored here wherever possible. Education and the sharing your knowledge is an integral part of the role, not predominantly policeman.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:02, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
user:billinghurst, don't know why you would expect anything but summary deletion. being an admin means never having to say you're sorry; and free to make picayune license purity tests. deletion before collaboration; and what other projects? but hey it's all good we can farm flickr.

Rama photograph of: M2 Browning Heavy Machine Gun[edit]

Howdy from Texas Rama, I enjoy genealogy work. I am in the " Military & War" Project, at wikitree.com / http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dortch-50 I would like other users of wikitree.com to be able to use this image also. I think that I have completed all the necessary steps for Creative Commons. URL. url site. Attribution: "Photograph by Rama, Wikimedia Commons, Cc-by-sa-2.0-fr" . & then I tried to use the "[ [ ] ]" for the wikisite. It did not appear when I used the double brackets. It is no problem :). If I have missed doing something please advise me sir ? I have also attempted to up load the same image at fold3.com , I will double check that I have fulfilled the requirements of Creative Commons for this site also. Thank You Kindly, John P Vickery IV http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vickery-352 I can also be reached at yaquidebrujo@yahoo.com Have a Great Day :)

Thank you for your interest in my image and in Free licences.
Normally, the image should appear on a MediaWiki-based wiki if you use Image:Dortch-50-1.jpg, but depending on your settings this might change. Keep in mind that other wiki systems might use different syntaxes. At worse, you should be able to use a full HTML command ("<img src="http://www.wikitree.com/photo.php/e/ee/Dortch-50-1.jpg">").
Best of luck, Rama (talk) 10:51, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
