Merci pour la salutation. Je ne suis pas vraiment un nouveau venu, je suis là depuis un peu plus d'une année. Mais bon, mieux vaut tard que jamais.  :) --Rotkraut 19:02, 5 April 2007 (UTC)


It's funny, now I can see how much you really care and the other user who voted "to keep" that image File:Jacivelasquez.JPG, maybe the uploader is your boyfriend, friend or some, it's comical, well honestly I don't care my images at all, as you know I can do the same with your images, but I'm not like that, good luck!.--Celestial (talk) 23:58, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Soviet Mars probes[edit]

Hi Rotkraut, you've been deleting dozens of Soviet Mars Probe images [1] because they apparently were blatant copyvios. I don't know how the images looked like, but I have some suggestions for how they're free images anyway.

  • Soviet Union had an exhibition of Mars probe replicas at VDNKh at a Moscow suburb. Perhaps a NASA photographer shot images of Mars probes there?
  • In 1975 the US and Soviet spacecraft Apollo-Soyuz made a rendezvous in space. Prior to that NASA employees went to USSR and could have taken images of the technical backups in an atmosphere of cooperation.
  • The Soviet Union didn't recognized copyright so USSR images are free.
Have a nice day. --Necessary Evil (talk) 07:15, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
First of all, i did not delete any image. I'm not an admin, so i don't have the power to delete images. But i indeed filed the deletion request you are refering to. Some comments on your suggestions:
  • Even if there may be a theoretical possibility for the images to be created by a NASA employee—i still do not believe this—this is irrelevant. For {{PD-USGov-NASA}} to apply, we need to know that the images are created by a NASA employee.
  • These images came from the NASA web site, i checked this for each of the images. On none of the NASA description pages was any statement that the images were created by NASA. The NASA webservers host lots of non-PD images and there is an explicit warning hint in the license template {{PD-USGov-NASA}} on this issue.
  • Some of the images were credited to Russian sources at the NASA web pages. At least for these images we know for sure that they are not PD-USGov-NASA.
  • Ex-USSR images are not in the PD, see {{PD-Soviet}} for details.

I just wanted to say thank you for cleaning up after my botched translations at COM:POTD. It has been a decent amount of time since I've done translation from English to German, so hopefully you don't mind too much as I plan to continue translating the captions. VernoWhitney (talk) 16:34, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

You're welcome! And please, keep translating the image captions! In any case it's better to have a translation with some minor issue then to have no translation at all. --Rotkraut (talk) 19:31, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Dein Revert[edit]

Moin, moin, ich sah gerade das du das Quality-Update umgehend revertiert hast. Ich war der Ansicht, dass das Bild nach der Bearbeitung noch besser geworden war und ersetzte es durch die neue Version. Es lag mir fern den Erschaffer des Bildes dadurch in irgendwelcher Form zu 'schädigen'.

Ich bin mir sicher, dass dies von dir auch nicht so empfunden wurde, aber die Erfahrung hat mich gelehrt, dass es im Wiki-Universe vereinzelt solche Mitglieder gibt. Aus diesem Grund hoffe ich auf diesem Wege einem evtl. Sturm im Wasserglas entgegenzuwirken. Nichts für ungut.--1970gemini 22:21, 14 Oct. 2011 (UTC)

Bei Geschmacksfragen kann man natürlich unterschiedlicher Meinung sein. Aber in dem Fall, das Bild mit Bonbonfarben überpinselt, die mit einem realistischen Anblick nun wirklich nicht mehr viel zu tun haben, nee, sorry, eine Verbesserung kann ich darin beim besten Willen nicht erkennen.
Ich habe auch gesehen, daß Du diese Art von „Quality-Updates“ auch bei vielen anderen Bildern vorgenommen hast. Zumeist in ähnlichem Stil, mit völlig unrealistischen, poppig bunten Farben. Ich möchte Dir nahelegen, mit solchen Aktionen zurückhaltender zu sein. Ich bin vermutlich nicht der einzige, der darin keine Verbesserung sieht.
Ich möchte aber auch anerkennen, daß Du gleich hier auf meiner Diskussionseite das konstruktive Gespräch gesucht hast und daher auch ausdrücklich annehmen, daß Du in gutem Willen gehandelt hast. Ich hoffe daher, daß Du mir meinene deutlichen Worte nicht übel nimmst. Also, wie Du selbst sagst: Nichts für Ungut! --Rotkraut (talk) 21:20, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
