We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

Suggestion about licensing

Hi. I think you should really read COM:L, about Commons's requirements on licensing, free licenses, public domain and so on. COM:CB can also be helpful. Regards, --Eusebius (talk) 18:29, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

I think I'll stick to texts... If the authors have to fill the form every time, I'll never finish my project with 88 covered bridges in Quebec. Guess a standard email and proof on author's website isn't enough for the international laws...--UncivilFire (talk) 21:31, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
One e-mail per author is often enough, but with a proper permission. The quoted statement was in no way a free license, and uploading them on Commons (as well as hosting them on Commons) is currently a copyright infringement... It was clearly stated that permission was only for personal use. --Eusebius (talk) 22:00, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
As an administrator, can you delete them all (which is basicly my only contribution to commons) or do we have to wait 7 days? As it obviously violates the copyright, the sooner they leave, the better it'll be.--UncivilFire (talk) 22:57, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
OK, if you don't expect to obtain a permission e-mail from the author, I'll remove them. --Eusebius (talk) 10:58, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media was probably deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Robert_Aitken_by_Stanley_Fefferman.jpg. This media is missing permission information. A source is given, but there is no proof that the author or copyright holder agreed to license the file under the given license. Please provide a link to an appropriate webpage with license information, or send an email with copy of a written permission to OTRS ( This also applies if you are the author yourself.

Please see this page for more information on how to confirm permission, and Commons:Permission if you would like to understand why we ask for permission when uploading work that is not your own.

The file probably has been deleted. If you sent a permission, try to send it again after 14 days. Do not re-upload. When the OTRS-member processes your mail, the file can be undeleted. Additionally you can request undeletion here, providing a link to the File-page on Commons where it was uploaded ([[:File:Robert_Aitken_by_Stanley_Fefferman.jpg]]) and the above demanded information in your request.

It seems that this file needs a confirmation e-mail from its copyright holder(s) in order to be hosted on Commons. It is the case for any copyrighted logo, content coming from an identified website or publication, or credited to somebody else than the Commons user. The copyright holder (maybe it's you, maybe not) should send us an e-mail in this form to When the e-mail has been sent, please apply {{OTRS pending}} on the image page (in the "permission" field) to tell us so (and to prevent the file from being deleted). Please don't ignore this message, contact me instead if you want to discuss the issue or if you have a question about the procedure. Eusebius (talk) 13:11, 6 December 2010 (UTC)


Salut! Thanks for your message. You do not need to delete the duplicate - an administrator will do it, so no problems. The only reason I uploaded a new version was because "Sherbrooke from the east about 1858" is a more informative file name than "MP-1974.61". We also typically crop out the McCord Museum watermark before we upload an image; however, if one ever forgets to do so (I do sometimes), one can just add the {{Watermark}} tag to the image description, and someone with cropping skills will do it.

I hope you do keep contributing to the Commons. It takes everyone awhile to get used to everything. I will take a look at that deletion request for you.

You're right. I should have kept "Silver salts on paper mounted on paper - Salted paper process" - I was overly ambitous with my copyedit. I don't normally keep information about the size of the original - it has limited relevance to a digital version.
