Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, SpacemanSpiff!

On what basis & merit has the files which were already in public domain as per Indian Copyright Act have been deliberately deleted? If a picture is already in public domain since its copyright has expired and can be reused freely, how the contributions made by me over last 4 years deleted entirety, some of which were credibly in public domain? In reason it is written, found higher resolution, pls provide link of any such higher resolution picture! 04:17, 30 September 2015 (UTC) Bn bt ec01

Request kind attention towards PD Images taken before 1955[edit]

Sir, the following Images taken between 1930s and 1947 when the subjects first rose to office in British India and later in independent India (In 1947) have been wrongly deleted.These images are clearly PD-India and legitimately old enough (more than 74 years old) to be undeleted and kept. File:Dr Rajendra Prasad PM Jahawar Lal Nehru Dr Anugrah Narayan Sinha Patna.jpg File:Bihar Vibhuti Anugraha Narain Sinha portrait.jpg File:Bihar Vibhuti Dr Anugrah Narain Sinha.jpg File:Bihar Vibhuti Dr. Anugrah Narayan Sinha.jpg Request to kindly verify,As these images belong to the period 1930s-1947, they are certainly in PD-India —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 13:13, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Deleted image returns[edit]

Regarding Commons:Deletion requests/File:LCA Tejas.jpg, is File:LCA.jpg the same image? It was readded to the WP Tejas article with the comment "the image is the same as what was there earlier but was removed from storage". Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 15:04, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

I think it's the same, likely a sock of the earlier uploader but as I don't have access to deleted stuff here I'm pinging @INeverCry: to check on that possibility. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 15:47, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

It's the same image. First uploaded in July 2011 by Rinju9 and today by With that length of time in between uploads, they probably lost or forgot their earlier password. INeverCry 18:23, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
