bonjour ; Category:Females performing fellatio in art ???? ; 81.64.30.73 09:25, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Oui! You just have to look more closely. I took the photo in Amsterdam's red light district. Schwede66 09:46, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Magog the Ogre, User:JLM has now twice removed a relevant category from this file. I'm not really sure what their problem is. Is there anything that you as an admin (I've just randomly picked someone who I've interacted with before) can do about it? Schwede66 06:40, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
I would leave a message on the talk page and ping the user and ask for an explanation. If none is received, restore it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 19:35, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I suspect that the anon above is the same editor. JLM, can you please explain why you keep removing the Category:Females performing fellatio in art when that is what is being shown on the panel in the foreground? Schwede66 20:14, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
where is the female ??? JLM (talk) 09:18, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
I've added a note to the photo. Hover over it with your mouse and it'll show up. Schwede66 09:25, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
thanks ! JLM (talk) 14:02, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Patrick Rogel, you will find that the National Library of New Zealand claims that copyright applies to everything that they host, even though that this is clearly not the case for material older than 50 years, or where the photographer died more than 50 years ago. That's why the Template:PD-NZ outlines all these rules. I will have uploaded hundreds of their files but none in breach of the PD-NZ situation. Schwede66 18:37, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi. I've already undone this deletion request 1 day ago a few minutes after realizing my mistake. Kind regards, --Patrick Rogel (talk) 21:02, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
Patrick Rogel Yes, I saw that. I posted the above because you did not seem it necessary to do so yourself. Somehow, I don't like it having copyright notices sitting on my talk page without something that puts it in context. Schwede66 21:26, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

File talk:DSC 0594 (3834917543).jpg[edit]

Hello. You left a note on this deleted talkpage, asking about the PD-Mark:

I've just uploaded a bunch of photos including this one. Do I take it from the tags that a user cannot license their own photo PD, and that they need to choose a different license before I can continue with their files? Schwede66 19:54, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

The problem is that PD Mark 1.0 is a marking tool but not a legal instrument. Effectively the Flickr user is saying "I think this work is free of copyright, as far as I know," which makes it unsuitable for Commons. If it is their own work, they shouldn't be guessing the copyright, and instead need to use something like {{CC-zero}}. If it isn't their own work, they should show why it is free of copyright. If you have uploaded such files, please tag them for deletion. I hope that makes sense. Green Giant (talk) 14:45, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, Green Giant; that makes sense. There were eight photos (I think) in that batch and I’ll look through my contributions to find them. I’ll go back to the photographer (these are that person’s photos) and ask them to please change the license on their Flickr stream. Schwede66 15:03, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
Excellent idea. If they do change to an acceptable license, please let me know and I'll undelete any relevant files without you having to go through the undeletion process. Cheers. Green Giant (talk) 15:09, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Green Giant, I'm a bit puzzled; those uploads don't show in my user contributions. I used flickr2commons. This was all done in one upload and from memory, there were about eight photos in that batch. Is it expected that using that tool, there's nothing in my user contributions? Or is it gone because somebody has already deleted the other files? Schwede66 20:56, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Hmm... is it not the first eight listed at Special:Log/Schwede66? If so, then they've been deleted. If those are the files, then the details are:
I hope that helps. Green Giant (talk) 22:14, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
Yep, that's the ones. I was looking at Special:Contributions/Schwede66 and that drew a blank. Thanks. They are also on my watchlist (which I only checked right now); got deleted six hours ago. Schwede66 22:20, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
