Vastaa sitten omalle keskustelusivulleni, eli, olin kerran näkevinäni oudon tiedostomuodon jolla pystyi selaamaan skannattua kirjaa. Voistiko mahdollisteti kertoa mikä tämä tiedostomuoto oli.--Tigru 13:45, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Nyt mulle selvii tiedostomuoto (DjVu), mutta miten sitä voi tallenaa.--Tigru 13:56, 1 January 2007 (UTC)


The en version is not GFDL-presumed, but GFDL. I fixed that in [1]. If that is the only reason this image was deleted, may be it should be restored...

BTW I fixed a small typo at en:User:Samulili. Hope you don't mind. -- Paddu 18:41, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Restored, and thanks for fixing that "bug". -Samulili 13:41, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:CNT-armoured-car-factory.jpg & Image:36 tramcnt.jpg[edit]

I believe the work is anonymous because those are photographs collected by Abel Paz from various CNT militants who donated their personal stuff to him over the years, and are currently held by the Fundación Anselmo Lorenzo in Barcelona. They were widely republished, so you can get them from almost anywhere, but the main source is him and his books, which never refer to the original photographers. Not even him knows. You can check this on Paz, A. (1976) Durruti: The People Armed. Montréal: Black Rose Books, or V/A (1996) Durruti 1896-1936. London: Active/Beastie. What other proof should I give you?

Please answer in the image's Discussion page. Best regards, Mr.Rocks 04:02, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

I have added this explanation on the image pages. -Samulili 09:19, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Hey. You changed a recording of Image:De-Zürich.ogg from what seemed to be a native Swiss pronunciation to the old one I had recorded in northern-type Standard German (but not as a native speaker). Could you motivate your edit at the talk page?

Peter Isotalo 12:55, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Answered. -Samulili 16:21, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Coats of Arms[edit]


You just added a move command to User:Orgullobot/commands. “Coats of Arms” is mispelled, and the correct name for the destination category is Coats of arms to be classified. --Juiced lemon 16:02, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing. I hope that Commons will work long enough for me to fix that... Samulili 17:53, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Welcome log active again[edit]

Hi, on User:Orgullobot/Welcome log you are listed as a helper. Orgullobot hasn't been active for a while and SieBot has taken over the welcoming a few days ago. There is fresh output again. I thought you might be interested in that info. I do hope on your continued participation in checking newbie edits. Cheers! Siebrand 09:17, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Silent Hunter III[edit]

Hi, I wanted to send the screenshot from the Silet Hunter III (Ubisoft). Ubisoft allows for using screenshot on wikipedia. You see: [2]. However I am new user of Commons,can you help me to upload screenshots form here. Wojo overkill 20:14, 26 January 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for your change to the Template:Duplicate, it should make deletion comments easier without ading more work for the admins. i was just wondering if you could take a look att the change I suggested on the talk page. Cheers /Lokal_Profil 16:42, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Ok, done. Samulili 16:55, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, however what I meant was that the [[: ]] should be displayed in the template (i.e. no wikilink in the template but a text copy of the line would give a wikilink). The way to get this is by simply putting a nowiki tag about the [[:{{{1}}}]]. Cheers /Lokal_Profil 17:59, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Many thanks /Lokal_Profil 01:37, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:Oswald hahmo.jpg[edit]

Looks like copyvio to me but you will probably know better. Yonatanh 19:57, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

It sure looks like a copyvio, doesn't it. But the original uploader is actually the creator of the series. Samulili 20:47, 12 February 2007 (UTC)


Hei, Minulla on ongelma. Olen kirjoittanut fi-wikiin artikkelia Sahan tasavallasta (ja siihen liittyvistä aiheista). Commonsin kuvavalikoima on kuitenkin aiheesta suppea. Olen ollut sähköpostitse yhteydessä sivustoon ja saanut luvan käyttää eräitä sivuilla olevia kuvia wikipediassa. Lisäksi olen saanut joitain kuvia sähköpostilla, mitä sivustolla ei ole. Ehtona on että kuvin tiedoissa on mainittu mistä ne ovat peräisin. Ehdotin samantyyppistä lisenssimerkintää kuin on esimerkiksi vector images-sivuston kuvissa [3]. Niin että mitenkäs tässä nyt olisi järkevintä toimia? (ja jos täällä vaikka vastaisit.) --Kyzyl 19:26, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Jos olet saanut luvan sähköpostilla, voit lähettää viestin eteenpäin osoitteeseen Huomaa kuitenkin, että Wikipediassa ei voi käyttää kuvia, joiden käyttöön annettu lupa koskee vain Wikipediaa, vaan luvan tulee sisältää maininta vapaista käyttöehdoista. Vapaita käyttöehtoja ovat esimerkiksi CC-BY-SA ja CC-BY sekä GFDL. Vector-image ei ehkä ole kovin hyvä esimerkki, mutta vastaava selkeämpisanainen lupa olisi täysin kelvollinen. (Esimerkiksi "Yakutitravel antaa luvan näiden tiedostojen käyttöön ja muokkaukseen. Lupa koskee myös kaupallisia tarkoituksia.") Lisäksi luvan yhteydessä tulisi olla linkki Wikipediaan/Commonsiin lisättyihin kuviin, jotta luvan lukija tietää, mitä kuvia lupa koskee. Samulili 19:58, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
Kiitos vastauksestasi. Täytyy nyt katsoa miten asia etenee. Saatan palata vielä asiaan jatkossa. --Kyzyl 20:18, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Free fi.wikipedia license to CommonsHelper[edit]

Done. Also, the fi "information" template should now be parsed correctly into the commons one. --Magnus Manske

Yes, my Finnish is a little rusty ;-) Anyway, should work now. --Magnus Manske 19:26, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Karpacz Samotnia[edit]

Why the.. have you deleted the photo named 'Karpacz Samotnia.jpg' ???

It was a great panoramic shot. I want it back. I dont care whether you have it or not. That pic was great in that article and I want it back. Or at least put it at and put the link here.Cheers.-- 14:09, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi! The image was deleted because there was no information if the image could be used freely. For the same reason I can't upload it anywhere else because that would be a copyright violation. Samulili 16:44, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Can you at least send me that image via e-mail? Thanks in advance. -- 17:44, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
I'd rather not, as it seems that the picture shouldn't have been uploaded here in the first place. That's why I prefer to act like it didn't exist. Samulili 21:06, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Categories naming[edit]


I would appreciate if you discuss instead of threathening me of vandalism.

I think that there is no good reason not to name the categories with the language of the place, so please do not rename Genève as Geneva. Categories redirect works quite well. Regards, Yann 21:38, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

The good reason is the rule. We have common rules, not rules custom made for every individual. 20:38, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

About Image:Laden.jpg[edit]

I noticed that you marked this photo as not having valid source information. Please check to see if a vandal removed it before marking images with {{Nsd}}, and please revert the vandalism. If you want to respond, please respond on my talk page on the English Wikipedia at en:User talk:Jesse Viviano. It was missing the source information because some vandal removed it. The information was restored, and the vandal has been warned. Jesse Viviano 21:57, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Armenian genocide memorial photo[edit]

Did you have any specific reason to delete this photo (its previous name was Tsitsernakaberd.jpg)? I swear I took it myself and that I uploaded it onto English Wikipedai (Commons did not exist at that time yet) about 3 years ago. Now I have reuploaded it and I hope its description ad license are OK.

BTW, this photo is requested to be deleted due to inappropriate name. --Heretiq 17:54, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Please see Commons:Freedom of panorama: "[Armenian law] only allow this limited form of freedom of panorama: images of architectural works, photographic works, or works of fine art (which includes sculptures and statues) that are permanently located in publicly accessible places may be published only for non-commercial purposes or if the depicted copyrighted base work is not the main subject of the image." This means that there is no correct license under which it can be used in Commons. You may, however, be able to use the image in some context in some projects which allow Fair Use. Kind regards, Samulili 19:06, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
I guess, the same applies for my other photos of Armenian monasteries and churches? If this is the case, give me some "transition period", please, to relocate them to Flickr or a similar site. --Heretiq 20:07, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
They may be used freely if their creator has died in 1936 or earlier. That might be true for most monasteries and churches, I think. Samulili 20:16, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you for changing the template. For some reasons I ask you, as the author of this file, to remove this image from the Commons depository. I would appreciate your immediate action.. Thank you for understanding! Greetings from: --Riva72 20:42, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Sputnik 1.jpg[edit]

Dear, Samulili. You closed the disscusion, and deleted Image:Sputnik1.jpg, but what's about it's copy Image:Sputnik 1.jpg? - It was also candidate for deletion. Alex Spade 14:15, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I meant to do it but apparantly I forgot. Samulili 16:36, 27 February 2007 (UTC)


Hi. Can you explain me this edit? I don't really follow your thinking, no offence ;) You've deleted category Musicians from Finland. Why? The other two categories don't belong to Musicians from Finland - that's how I try to explain myself your change. Can you make it clearer for me? Thanks in advance, cheers Wyglif 18:21, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

What we have here is problem caused by a confusing mix of categories and galleries. This image is in Musicians from Finland via Swallow the Sun > Category:Musical groups from Finland > Category:Musicians from Finland. Samulili 20:10, 28 February 2007 (UTC)


Dear Samulili, thank you. I am fond of Finland. It is an interesting country. I had a chance to visit Helsinki and I stayed at the New Valamo monastery for two weeks.. which was a wonderful experience in the beautiful environment.. I deposited two of the photos I've taken with the commons. You can look at them here: Image:Valamolanding1.jpg and Image:Valamolanding2.jpg. Have a nice evening and good luck! --Riva72 20:10, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Per Commons talk:Licensing#Photographs from places that allow only photographing for own use, what exactly did the Museum say in its communication to Wikimedia Commons? I would like to know, if that information is public of course. Balcer 01:05, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hello! Can the author of the photo which is uploaded to the Commons under 'Creative Commons Attribution 2.5' licence prohibit one of the sections of the Wikipedia encyclopedia (the Polish Wikipedia section) to use the author's photo to illustrate an article available there? The author wants to inform about this in the permission section of the photo summary info box. -- 16:57, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

That kind of license is not permitted. Regardless of the license issue, you could check the Polish Copyright law and see what it has to say about the moral rights of the author. There is slim chance that the law may have something to say about your situation. Samulili 14:23, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


Do you have a minute to offer some advice to me? Sorry to trouble you - I'll see an answer here - thanks --Herby talk thyme 08:31, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Sure. Just ask your question. Samulili 08:32, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
You've have had some contact with this just above! User_talk:Herbythyme#A_request_to_the_Commons_administrator - this is not an "easy" user and has some troubles with Polish wiki and some admins. I understand his wish for privacy but altering the license (in a sense?) and I'm not sure about the idea of unblocking him even temporarily? Rather a "new" admin to deal with this - sorry and thanks --Herby talk thyme 08:36, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
I think you can change the attribution from real name to a pseudonym. If Riva so wishes, you can add a license like {{Copyrighted free use provided that|The Polish Wikipedia project is prohibited by the author of this photo to use this file and its derivatives}} but the CC-license must not be removed. Samulili 10:02, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks - I do appreciate the help. I'm offline for 24 hours or so and will give it some thought --Herby talk thyme 11:44, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Suomen kunnista[edit]

Moi. Suomen kunnista Rautavaaralta puuttuu luokka täältä, laiska kun olen niin en jaksa itte tehdä:). Toisekseen, kun en tiedä käytäntöjä niin miksi jotkut luokat on kunnan ruotsinkielisellä nimellä, Category:Pernå (Pernaja), Category:Larsmo (Luoto), Category:Vörå-Maxmo (Vöyri-Maksamaa), Category:Oravais (Oravainen), Category:Kimito (Kemiö). Category:Ingå ja Category:Inkoo pitäis varmaan yhdistää. Tälläistä osui silmään tässä pikaisesti. -- 13:24, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Puuttuvia oli pari lisää, jaksoin luoda itse.. Category:Mustasaari ja Category:Korsholm pitäis varmaan yhdistää johonkin suuntaan. -- 18:35, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
Olin unohtanut Kymanlaakson maakunnan. Suomen kuntien luokat on nimetty sen mukaan, kumpi on kunnassa enemmistökieli. Yritän muistaa yhdistää nuo pari. Samulili 19:36, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Simple photographs[edit]

Regarding that Paavo Nurmi photo: even if this is a "simple photograph" in Finland, it is a "photographic work" in countries that have a low threshold of originality (like the U.S.). And as its protection in Finland expired only in 2002, I think its copyright was also restored in the U.S. by the URAA in 1996. So we shouldn't actually host it. The image is also not useable in Germany (another low threshold country), or in Austria, or in many other countries. Lupo 09:08, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Samulili, please relax a little on the template deletion requests, to avoid making comments such as "You want to know my asshole?".

Full text of art.72 UrhG (German copyright law) - according to photos ====

UrhG § 72 Lichtbilder

(1) Lichtbilder und Erzeugnisse, die ähnlich wie Lichtbilder hergestellt werden, werden in entsprechender Anwendung der für Lichtbildwerke geltenden Vorschriften des Teils 1 geschützt.

(2) Das Recht nach Absatz 1 steht dem Lichtbildner zu.

(3) Das Recht nach Absatz 1 erlischt fünfzig Jahre nach dem Erscheinen des Lichtbildes oder, wenn seine erste erlaubte öffentliche Wiedergabe früher erfolgt ist, nach dieser, jedoch bereits fünfzig Jahre nach der Herstellung, wenn das Lichtbild innerhalb dieser Frist nicht erschienen oder erlaubterweise öffentlich wiedergegeben worden ist. Die Frist ist nach § 69 zu berechnen.


Commentary: Article 72nd UrhG is "lex specialis" (strict definition according to photos) in contrary to article 64 UrhG which is "lex generalis" ( general rule of copyright apart exlusions such like art. 72 )

Andros64 14:21, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Art 72 UrhG in official English translation:

Section II Protection of Photographs

Article 72

(1) Photographs and products manufactured in a similar way to photographs shall be protected, mutatis mutandis, by the provisions of Part I applicable to photographic works.

(2) The right afforded by paragraph (1) shall belong to the photographer.

(3) The right afforded by paragraph (1) shall expire 50 years after publication of the photograph, or if its first permitted public communication took place earlier, after the latter, but 50 years after its manufacture where the photograph has not been published or legally communicated in public within such period. The period shall be calculated in accordance with Article 69.

According to discussion - greetings from Poland ( like in Winter War Just take a look:)

Andros64 18:48, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment § 72 UrhG covers „Lichtbilder“. Nearly every photo (except: Für den einfachen Lichtbildschutz verblieben demnach (von Zufallsfotos infolge eines versehentlichen Auslösens der Kamera abgesehen) nur technische Fotos, bei denen jeder Fotograf mit denselben Fähigkeiten und Kenntnissen dasselbe Ergebnis, nämlich eine technisch einwandfreie Wiedergabe, erzielen müsse (also etwa Reproduktionen von Gemälden, Fotos von Maschinen, Fotos für die Verbrecherkartei, kartografische Luftaufnahmen und - im Regelfall - Passbilder aus Fotoautomaten).) is a „Lichtbildwerk“ (§ 64 UrhG, copyrighted for 70 years after the author’s dead). Andros is wrong („according to photos“), but he doesn’t stop promoting this false information and uses § 72 UrhG for portraits and so on. --Polarlys 15:39, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

I find your reopening of the case distasteful. -- Cat chi? 14:08, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

I don't find it distasteful, but I do find it extremely worrying that an admin is not aware of the rules of the deletion process. I don't know why this is such a sentimental issue to you that you find it necessary to drastic actions against the rules and why you find it reasonable to use words like distasteful, but I do hope that you find in your heart some room for self-reflection.

Regulations of German Law towards common photos (not the Artphotos)[edit]

Green politicians[edit]

Moi! Oon nyt lisännyt tänne kuvia poliitikoista. Ne kaikki näkyvät käyttäjäsivullani. Voisitko tarkistaa, onko niissä kaikki kohdallaan, ja pitääkö noita varten pyytää kuvan kohteelta lupa? (Typoja, määrittelyjä, luokituksia jne. saa korjata!) Ehkä kannattaa myös tsekata, onko kuvan Image:Sumuvuori.jpg oikeudet varmasti ok.

Mites muuten noiden luokkien ja galleriasivujen kanssa: Kumpi on ensisijainen, jos samasta kohteesta on useampia kuvia? Mä tyhjensin jonkun sivun (kun en tiennyt, mikä täällä on roskamallinetta vastaava) ja korvasin sen luokalla.

Call to arms[edit]

Hi Samulili. I write to you and all other users listed on the Welcome log helpers list, except for EugeneZelenko this Call to arms. The reason for it is that I have seen very little activity on the project by you. Because of this we have most probably failed to check the contributions of thousands of new users and have not been able to inform them of the practices on Wikimedia Commons in a timely fashion, causing more work for us and the contributor later in the process.

I would like to urge you to make a habit of checking at least 10 or so new user's contributions from the Commons:Welcome log each day you are active here. We welcome about 200 new users with contributions each day and we currently have 19 users on the helpers list. You can find links to some helpful scripts on the welcome log page, that are likely to make your life a lot easier. If there are no users to be checked that have been welcomed today, please attend to a previous log. Thank you for your renewed attention. Cheers! Siebrand 12:20, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Last comment[edit]

Regaring Commons:Deletion requests/THEhotel, my rationale for believing that it was a helicopter shot was becuase it looked too perfect. No information on the vantage point, so I naturally assumed a helicopter. It could be a hotel room, in retrospect, but he does not specify the hotel room. But it simply has that aura of professional style, compared to his other ones. Most of his other photographs are ground-level, what I call the the "parking lot vantage point" shots (examples: w:Image:Janugget.jpg and w:Image:Lv-hilt3.jpg). The Hilton one is even tilted, amateurish, compared to the THEHotel ones. These are bizzare in that they look like perfect promo shots of the hotels. Well, those are just my suspicions, I regret that I didn't tag them with w:template:nsd when I had the chance. hbdragon88 04:04, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

A "sorry, I disagree" would aptly close the issue here and now (reply here, by the way). 01:36, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Certainly, I'm sorry I didn't realize that you hoped for a reply. Regarding the photos, I understand why you were suspicious but all things considering I disagree and that in my opinion it is certainly reasonably probable that the uploader is also the photographer.

Tips for image deletions requests and user messages[edit]

Hi Samulili. I was very pleasantly surprised to see you take an active interest in COM:WL recently.

Names of the regions[edit]

As South is more exact and determined expression of a region than Southern and as South Karelia and Southn Bothnia use South instead of Southern and as North Karelia is North Karelia, not Norhern Karelia, I would suggest that as for the regions of Finland would be used South instead of Southearn and North instead of Norhern to translate the Finnish expressions Etelä- and Pohjois-. 16:38, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

This is a very difficult question that I have been wondering. First problem is that these may be names that Finnish bodies have given to their regions—when we should use the names that English speaking people use. The real English names might be found in some EU documents, or maybe not. The second problem is that some of the names are given by Finnish bodies as the names of the bodies, and not as the names for the region.
I don't oppose to changing names but I would like to use other sources than the Finnish ones. If you find them, I will be glad to help in renaming the categories. Samulili 19:34, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
