Hi there! To keep the flow of conversations, I like to keep threads on one page where possible. So, if you post a message here, I'll probably respond to it here - I do have e-mail alerts for this page. Conversely, if I post a message on your talk page, you can respond there if you wish; since I've edited your talk page I'll have it on my watchlist. Thanks!

Wiki Loves Africa[edit]

In English (lire en français plus bas)

Thank you for your contribution to Wiki Loves Africa 2017


The project is a celebration of the visual diversity of Africa on Wikipedia and its sister projects. There are several fun ways you can help us to make the impact of Wiki Loves Africa stronger:

  • Add more categories to your images so that people will find them to use them in articles ... you can see how to do this here: Quick Guide to Categories on Commons
  • Add your image to a relevant Wikipedia article, i.e. if your image shows a tailor sewing, then add the image to an article on Sewing or Tailors - this allows readers to see different global perspectives of a universal subject. You can see how to do this here: How to insert images into Wikipedia using WikiText
  • Improve the images description to make them easier to understand and reuse.
  • If there is no article that reflects the subject of your images, then start an article about that subject. If you are a new editor, you can see how to do that here: Creating your first article
  • Add more images - you can add more images or media that reflect interesting and encyclopedic subjects in your immediate community.
  • Become involved in (or start) your local Wikimedia community groups - it is a lot of fun, and is important! Find the existing groups here: Wikimedia groups across Africa

We look forward to seeing your contributions!!

Here is the license information of File tagging File:Lydia Wabs.jpg[edit]

I got the licence link from flickr to the file allowing its re-use thank you in advance and hope the tag will be removed {{Boy Addi (talk) 07:49, 24 November 2017 (UTC)|07:38, 24 November 2017|Boy Addi}} Here is the link to file marked for deletion

Uploads by QuantumDeveloperTeam[edit]

Hi Ronhjones. You just deleted File:EuroAsia Map.jpg which I tagged as a copyvio. I think it might be a good idea to check all of the files uploaded by Special:Contributions/QuantumDeveloperTeam for more copyvios. I also found File:EuroAsiaJan2012.jpg since it can be seen here. Just a guess, but this might be a case where someone working at that website is uploadeding the photos as "own work", and maybe all that is needed is OTRS verification. The account is only about a week old, so the uploader probably is not familiar with COM:L. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:01, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

I've left him a note. Ronhjones  (Talk) 01:24, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:34, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

Now our Director of Communications gave all permissions to wikimedia in [Ticket#2018013010004118]. Although still waiting to respond what files are involved in that process, so little bit patience please. My name just day ago was User:QuantumDeveloperTeam.--Vermed22 (talk) 08:34, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

I suggest to add {{OTRS pending}} to avoid deletions until OTRS volunteer will take care the ticket. -- Geagea (talk) 15:29, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Black Devil Disco Club LP cover.jpg[edit]

From here : [1] ??? --Dbult (talk) 23:20, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

@Dbult: Actually here - en:File:Black Devil Disco Club LP cover.jpeg - non-free image used under US fair use Law (600,000 such images on en-wiki). Not allowed on commons. Nearly all images on en-wiki cannot be used here (most of the ones that can, have been moved here). Also note that the few images left on en-wiki that can be used here must be moved properly and not copied. See en:Wikipedia:Moving files to Commons Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:50, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Deleting File: LPR_logo1.png[edit]


Information from the official site of LPR:

«Also you can download a file with our logo - a vector image in pdf format or high-quality raster in jpg format and independently make any materials you need...»

[Также вы можете скачать файл с нашей атрибутикой - векторное изображение в формате pdf или растр в высоком качестве в формате jpg и самостоятельно изготовить нужные вам материалы...]

In addition, the Libertarian Party of Russia is opposed to copyright, so it is strange enough to delete their logo for using it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xhostilex (talk • contribs) 00:13, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

@Xhostilex: There needs to be a copyright release to CC-BY-SA-4.0 on or we cannot use it - or the copyright owners use COM:CONSENT to donate the copyright. Ronhjones  (Talk) 00:21, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

umcntplogo deleted[edit]

-How I use my company Logo to my article in wikipedia? I am employe of PT nusantara turbin dan propulsi .. Erlan Azahra (talk) 02:02, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

@Erlan Azahra: It can only be on commons as a free image, so the copyright holder needs to go to COM:CONSENT and follow the instructions there. If it is only for English Wikipedia, you could upload locally at en:Wikipedia:Upload/old, and set the image up as a fair use logo - look at any image at en:Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Non-free_logo to see how it's has a rationale and a non-free license.

Kris Brownlee.jpg or Kris Brownlee 2012.jpg[edit]

Hi Ronhjones! I know you are just trying to do your part in keeping Wikimedia safe and fair of lawsuits. Being still new to Wikimedia/Wikipedia, I don't understand how this infringes on any copyright, since it is no longer on The only reason why I re-uploaded it, is because I removed it off my website and was unfamiliar with Wikimedia's policies. I own this file as it is a picture of me. How do I go about releasing this file so it can be used on Wikipedia. There has to be way because companies such as Apple use the same graphic on their website and on Wikipedia. If you need me to prove that it is actually me I can take a selfie of myself or send you a video to your private email. Please Advise! Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saxy61 (talk • contribs) 22:29, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

@Saxy61: COM:CONSENT is the way to go. Ronhjones  (Talk) 22:33, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your help!--Saxy61 (talk) 22:43, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
