Thanks for uploading File:MD-520MG Cockpit.jpeg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

I don't understand why the picture I uploaded was deleted. I thought it was CLEAR enough when I uploaded the image that it was MINE and that I was uploading on my own free will for use by Wikipedia. So how come we have all these hassle now again? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rhk111 (talk • contribs) 03:57, 18 March 2014‎
I don't recall this exact image but from log I can see that you did not provide a copyright licence for the image when you uploaded it, so it was deleted. All images must have a copyright licence even when it is your own image because we don't know exactly what permission you are giving even though you say that you were "uploading on my own free will". The upload page walks you through the process step by step with great details given. If you chose the "It is entirely my own work" link, under Step 3 you were asked to provide a copyright licence and told to "Choose a license from the drop-down box". You must not have done that, so we did not have your permission to use or keep the image. You can upload it again under the same name and if you follow all the steps as requested there should not be a problem. Any questions just ask. Good luck. Ww2censor (talk) 09:18, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
BTW, you did this one correctly. File:PhAF MD-520MG Helicopter.JPG Ww2censor (talk) 13:06, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

The source is the Philippine Navy's "Philfleet Magazine", 2016 Anniversary Edition as I had indicated when I uploaded the file. Since it is a Philippine Navy property, then that should make it eligible to be under the Public Domain. Rhk111 (talk) 12:13, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. Can you identify a public-domain license tag here in Commons that applies to the Philippine Navy? CC-0 cannot apply here: it is a dedication, which means it can only be applied by the author or copyright owner…~ --Ariadacapo (talk) 12:56, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
I don't understand, because Wikimedia Commons has been accepting Public licensing of PN materials for quite some time now, like these examples: BRP Tarlac Homebound,Philippine Navy Cessna -- Rhk111 (talk) 13:46, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
{{PD-PhilippinesGov}} ! You found it, this is the copyright template we need, and I just applied it to the file in question.
To clarify: the CC-0 dedication is chosen by the author/copyright owner of the work: it is applied "on top" of a given work which is copyrighted by default. To upload a CC-0 file on Commons, you need to either be the author, or show that the work has been dedicated. By contrast, the public domain status of (some) governmental works is by default: copyright does not apply to those works, whether the authors like it or not. Even if in the end, the result is practically (though not exactly) the same, indicating the proper reason why some work has no restriction attached makes this information verifiable, which is important on a wiki website. Thanks for your patience! --Ariadacapo (talk) 18:08, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
