Hi. On 8 October 2011, you redirected File:Blank-map-world-reversed.png to File:Blank-map-world-south-up.png with the summary "Redirecting to duplicate file". Actually, the latter was a duplicate of the former. Also, judging by the talk page of the original, the user who created the duplicate, may have actually created a different map. Apparently (I commented on the talk page at the time, though I don't remember), the original was a flipped map, rather than a rotated map like the duplicate. Is there anyway to restore the original?

Hi, Túrelio Good Morning[edit]

I received a dire or disturbing message here [2] to which I replied forthwith; [3] and another reply; with all due resepec, I cannot understand why after more than 101,000 edit files I upload only since February this year, 2014, I am attacked and accused of many bad things; as you see in my reply, I only not opted or chose to create 2 categories and rather placed the category in one Category as sub-category; I am accused of violating the Rules on Meta or Over-Categorization; but the accuser failed to point to me the specific provision or rule that I violated; I deny the violation, for I am faithfully adhering to the rules; the thing speaks for itself; good faith in editing is presummed; no editor or administraor has messaged me on this, but only this editor, since I started this February, 2014; It is very painful and terrifying to edit and contribute and at the same time being personally attacked; Please, with your kindness and integrity give me some protection, and if I am wrong, please help me be corrected; I chose not to use my user name but just an IP Address for reasons of security. Muchas gracias Túrelio-- 04:45, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for you time, Túrelio. I forthwith received in my talk page, a more dire message in this manner which I am quoting because of its importance and I underscore it, to wit: ::::* Sorry xxx I have given up on xxx He just does his own thing, thinking that his pictures will make "Commons a better place for researchers", "a wiser tool of knowledge for the future" and "benefit in the future". Obviously he is thinking way too much of himself and his pictures! But really, he is using Commons as his personal storage device. We have told him many times to be selective, to categorize properly, even to add better descriptions. Even after pointing out the problem, he still doesn't go back to his uploads to correct them, but leaves it to others to clean up after him. That shows that either he doesn't understand English, or he is too arrogant to care. We should just dump all his pictures in a special category like Category:Photographs by Ramon F Velasquez or Category:Photographs by Judge floro, and there nobody will be able to find them or make sense of the mess... [4];

Will all my 101,000 files [5] since February 2014, disappear[edit]

And does User: P199 which, as is shown the other account or alternate of User:Briar fallen, have the power, administrative or otherwise, to delete all my 101,000 photos and dump them in hidden category as these Users P 199 and Briar fallen decide to dump in ""a special category like Category: Photographs by Ramon F Velasquez or Category: Photographs by Judge floro, and there nobody will be able to find them or make sense of the mess... as they proclaimed, announced and stated? Hence, all my photos are rendered nugatory, hidden and can no longer be found in Commons and Wikipedia, is this for real? Please help me, thanks, Very sincerely yours.-- 14:29, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio[edit]

Jermboy entwickelt zur Zeit wieder ungeahnte Energien. Ich habe den ja schon mit gefälschten Verkehrszeichen (seine Leidenschaft) seit Jahren am Knie. Danke für die schnelle Reaktion. Leider kann ich so meinen neuen Artikel zu den DDR-Verkehrszeichen nur sehr langsam vorantreiben, da ich durch Jermboy vielfach hier gebunden werde und nun wirklich keinen Bock habe den ganzen Tag am Rechner zuzubringen, zumal es ja noch das RL gibt. Leider mußte ich auch meinen Artikel zu den DDR-Verkehrszeichen vorzeitig aus meinem Namensraum in den Artikelbereich bringen, da mich auch da Jermboy schon störte. Und ich hatte Angst daß mir das passiert, was dereinst schon der unsägliche Benutzer Korrekturen einst gemacht hat. Der hat nämlich auch Artikel angelegt, die andere schon in Vorbereitung hatten. Das hat er bei mir auch mal gemacht. So steht er nun als Artikelbegründer in den Analen, obwohl er nur einen winzigen Stub produzierte. Das war sehr ärgerlich. Solche Artikel baut auch niemand mehr groß aus. Mediatus (talk) 20:28, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Destruction of redirects[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems #Destruction of redirects by CAPTAIN RAJU and Túrelio. This is in relation to an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:28, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm currently too ill to take care about that. Maybe I'll be a bit fitter tomorrow. --Túrelio (talk) 19:49, 4 March 2018 (UTC)


Hello, I saw the message. the truth is, i spoke to the man who run the sport shop in my neighbour and he told me it's fine. Yesterday i went there to buy an inter shirt and i saw this panorama picture of duro and i asked him to make a picture. I don't have any evidence to convince you for it but i'm not lying. I've done the same before with a Dinamo tirana poster (you can see it at my uploads) in a restaurant. Please remove it, it is not a copyright. -- Sadsadas, 8 March 2018

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Sadsadas (talk • contribs) 14:32, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Sadsadas,
this is not about believing you or not. First I would like to know what thing did you actually take a picture of (in other words, on what thing is the depicted photo on)? I cannot recognize it, is it a framed photo-print, a screen, a drinking glass or what? --Túrelio (talk) 14:52, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

It is a framed photo-print, it is in the entry of the shop. --Sadsadas (talk) 14:54, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

If you want, i can make another photo in daylight so you can see it better. --Sadsadas (talk) 14:57, 8 March 2018 (UTC

No, that's not necessary. Thanks.
The decisive question is now: who created the original photo of Klodian Duro? Because only he/she can give us/you a permission. With "creating" I mean, took his camera, went to the soccer stadium or whereever the photo has originally been shot, shot the image. Sitting in front of the TV and making a screenshot in the right moment is not valid.
If the owner of the shop bought this image somewhere else, he has only the right to "use" the physical printed image. But he cannot (legally) multiply or copy it or even give you permission, because it is not his own work.
Problem is, most people in the world have no idea about copyright, not in your country, not in my country. People buy a contemporary painting (the original) for a lot of money and think, now it's my own, I can do what I want. They are wrong. The copyright over the painting is still with the painter, even if he sold the physical painting. --Túrelio (talk) 15:26, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
  • I understand your point. Then i'll have to ask him about the image. I'll respond to you after some days. --Sadsadas (talk) 20:30, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

speedy deletion removed[edit]

Hi, you removed the speedy delete tag from a list of images that easily meet the requirements for speedy delete. Why? If I added the heading in a manner that's incorrect, would you mind telling me what is proper? These images don't fall under standard DR. They are stills from a video that has been deleted for copyright violation. Thanks. Rosepoussiere (talk) 16:32, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion for a deletion request? Agree with Túrelio – this was utterly lame. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:43, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
hi Incnis Mrsi: I posted this here asking for help, as clearly I'd done something wrong, but I didn't understand what. Do you mind explaining? I wasn't looking to be called "lame" but to ask about protocols. thanks, and have a wonderful day Rosepoussiere (talk) 16:47, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
@Rosepoussiere, when a speedy-template (any kind of) is inserted into a deletion-request (on the image-page and/or the discussion page), then this DR and the common page for all DRs filed on the same day, are listed in the speedy-deletion category and might possibly become speedy-deleted by an inattentive admin (me included), which would be a desaster. That's what mainly behind my edit. --Túrelio (talk) 16:49, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

@Túrelio, thanks for explaining. Is there a different way to mark them for speedy delete? In fact, that is what these images are. There's no debate or ambiguity about them, since they derive from a nonexistent source. But perhaps anyone can alter them from speedy delete to DR and once that's done, there is no re-tagging them for speedy delete? thanks for your help.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Rosepoussiere (talk • contribs) 17:01, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
Technically, you could just put a copyvio-tag on each of the images. However, I would not recommend that, as the DR is ongoing. Nevertheless, I've notified my admin-colleague Sealle, who was also the uploader, about consent to speedy-closure of the DR. So, for the moment, you can just sit back and watch the process take its course. :-) --Túrelio (talk) 17:17, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Túrelio,
There is a kind of weird activity I would like to draw your attention to. Seems like this user came here for one reason and one reason only – to get rid of Rachel Kushner photos. Please take a look at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Rachel Kushner March 2015 in Zürich, Switzerland.jpg and [6]. I feel unimpressed about these attempts to dictate to the community, which photos are to be used in articles. Now, let's stick to the issue. Here's what the result of a deletion for copyright violations on YouTube looks like: [7] [8] and this is definitely not the same as in our case: [9] or [10] (depends on your settings). This apparently was a courtesy deletion, so I really did not like those groundless accusations of copyright infringement on my talk page. Accordingly, I see no reason to follow their desire and now I would prefer a regular DR. In case that video has been deleted by YouTube not for copyright concerns, then my uploads were OK because the license was irrevocable. Sealle (talk) 19:16, 8 March 2018 (UTC) UPD: I find this case similar to another one, when the subject did her best to force deleting all her photos and became happy only when a foppish one has been uploaded instead. Sealle (talk) 20:02, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
what is the similarity? that image is not a video still, and it's not from a deleted source. I'm very confused. what does foppishness have to do with it? that's a funny image you posted, but this discussion seems to be straying into some other territory. this issue is about putting images on creative commons that have no creative commons attribution, correct? thanks Rosepoussiere (talk) 20:46, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
 : just responding here since this is about me. It's true that I originally asked an administrator about the image you link to, and in response, you posted many images of the author Rachel Kushner that are all stills from a video that was incorrectly declared as creative commons by librerie mollat, who were then informed of their error by the french publisher edition stock, and they immediately removed the video: they deleted themselves, thus the copyright violation notice would not appear. I alerted wikimedia that those images are pulled from a source that no longer exists. How is this weird? I respect the process of administration, and appreciate the work you do to uphold both copyright laws, and communal standards. In this case, there is no source, so the images should be deleted. Thanks, Rosepoussiere (talk) 19:31, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Brochure MeCoaching Voorkant.jpg[edit]

Dear Túrelio, Thank you for checking Commons for copyright violations and removing if appropriate. Please look closer when you delete a file according to a google search. The 22.800.000 hit may indicate that the file is licensed correctly like in this case as it is based on a CC0 Creative Commons from Pixabay Keep up the good work :) With kind regards, BeeBringer (talk) 19:06, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

@BeeBringer: so what? It is {{CC0}} – practically, public domain. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:26, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Dear @Incnis Mrsi: I could not understand why it was deleted on basis of copyright violations when it is public domain? BeeBringer (talk) 19:30, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Oops, I missed the point. Supply {{derived from}} next time to fend off copyright paranoia. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:31, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Dear @Incnis Mrsi:, thanks good tip! Greetings, BeeBringer (talk) 19:33, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
@BeeBringer:, when we (patrolers) copyvio-tag a recently uploaded file, it does not absolutely proof that it's a copyvio. In case of files uploaded as "own work", such as in your example, it just shows that the same image had been published earlier, which usually is a clear indication that the "own work"-claim may be wrong. Of course, even that assumption may be wrong in a few cases. But, we are open for discussion. If the files hasn't been deleted already, you may comment on the file talkpage, which usually will prevent speedy-deletion.
We are all aware that he overall situation is far from optimal. We are flooded with new uploads, of which quite a number are copyvios, which need early detection, to prevent that re-users are exposed to litigation by the true rightsholder. But, there too few users patroling recent uploads, so the workload makes a more thorough investigation to prevent false-positive impossible.--Túrelio (talk) 19:44, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Dear @Incnis Mrsi:, I understand completely. No problem. Only thankful that volunteers try to keep this project running. Thanks, BeeBringer (talk) 20:07, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Maria Callas.2.JPG (histlogsabuse log)[edit]

It was not an “exact” duplicate and even less “scaled-down” one because of larger pixel size (height = 240 px) and, of course, different cropping (breasts partially included). Don’t trust random assertions without verification – I start to deem that this problem of yours (and several other Commons sysops) is systemic. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:47, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Technically you are correct, but the (deleted) version had obviously been "enlarged", i.e. it was more blurry than the maintained version. --Túrelio (talk) 08:54, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
I uploaded a lossless crop similar to the deleted one, but without retouching. Please, restore all deleted things to make history consistent. BTW, I still expect your comments about CAPTAIN RAJU who (presumedly) duped you into deletion of six legitimate redirects. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 09:28, 10 March 2018 (UTC)


Hii sorry for my ignorance while uploading images. how can we upload a film poster? which type licencing? and the normal image that took by me(which licence)... thank you --Yourmistake (talk) 10:17, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi, movie-posters do always require an expressed license from the movie studio, which needs to be presented to . Also, the permission needs to be compliant to policy. See also: Commons:Copyright_rules_by_subject_matter#Posters. --Túrelio (talk) 11:11, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

I have an Email from an official at the Rolex Foundation, which is the owner of this photo, saying I can share it as long as I attribute it to the photographer and Rolex. I can forward this Email to you. Would this be enough?

Thank you,

Little advice[edit]

Hi Túrelio, I noted that you tagged image to delete which I was uploaded as an copyright violation. if I upload like this.

|source=Name of person who has given (email/message)

is that ok, also could you please conform what basis can create category about a wikipedian like this.

File:Alte Gesamtausgabe.JPG[edit]

Dear Túrelio,

I have uploaded the picture File:Alte Gesamtausgabe.JPG to illustrate the page Bruckner Gesamtausgabe.

The picture is a scan of a page put at the end of Max Auer's book "Anton Bruckner - Sein Leben und Werk", published in Leipzig in 1941. It is actually not a part of the book, but an annoucement for the "Bruckner Gesamtausgabe".
Max Auer deceased in 1962, and Robert Haas, who was the editor of the "Bruckner Gesamtausgabe", deceased in 1960.
Hopefully there are no problems of copy-right.

Please let me know whether I was allowed to upload it into Commons.

Thanks for your help, --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 17:26, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Meneerke bloem:,
nice to hear from you again. I am not sure about whether such an information sheet is above threshold of originality. Therefore, I've asked other :de users and are currently waiting for their opinions. --Túrelio (talk) 21:40, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
So far opinion is that the page is below threshold of originality and thereby not copyrightable. I've placed it also in the :de article. --Túrelio (talk) 08:50, 19 March 2018 (UTC)
Danke vielmals! As you can see, I am still active on Wikimedia with botany, but also Anton Bruckner's works. In addition to the nice collaboration I have with John Berky and Hans Roelofs, I have now also a close cooperation with scholar William Carragan about the difficult topic of the different versions of Bruckner's works. My practice of the German language is unfortunately not sufficient to adapt the existing pages on Bruckner's works of the German Wikipedia or to create via translation the pages I have created on the English and French Wikipedias.

User page deletion[edit]

Hello Túrelio, I noticed at AN you deleted a user page per his request. I would be very interested to learn if this practice (which I do not disapprove) is based on a community discussion and what is the reasoning behind, since on the French project such requests are systematically declined. How about your home project and other projects you know of ? Again, please trust this is by no means a criticism. I am just interested to dig further into the matter. Cheers, — Racconish 11:04, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Racconish, you are likely refering to User:Mr.Polaz. In our policy the deletion of a userpage, as request by the user, falls into the category "Maintenance" and can be performed as speedy deletion. Commons is my home-project, though I started in :de, where the deletion of userpages (or pages in userspace), but NOT of user-talkpages falls also into speedy-deletion, see de:Wikipedia:Schnelllöschantrag#Sonstige_Löschgründe. I don't remember whether there was any discussion about this on :de. At :en, the deletion of userpages (again, not user-talkpages) is part of the right to vanish. --Túrelio (talk) 12:16, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

5 images and a question[edit]

Dear Turelio,

Could you review these 5 images below please first?

Secondly, I think this image below is licensed incorrectly. The copyright owner says on the source link that she licenses it into the public domain.

It seems to me that the correct license is cc-zero and not CC BY SA. If you agree, please consider changing the license to cc-zero and reviewing it. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 05:17, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

WRT to the Sally image, that's likely a "misunderstanding". For her (and likely for most unexperienced people) a CC-license is like "public domain", anybody can use it etc. As her tweet actually confirms that she uploaded it by herself, we can safely take literally the placement of the CC-template. With portraits of living people, I feel a bit more safe (WRT to fight abuse) with a CC license. --Túrelio (talk) 07:02, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
  • OK then. Thank You for your analysis Turelio. I prefer to ask an experienced Admin on complicated copyright issues. I will pass the image on the CC BY SA license. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:57, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Uploading picture[edit]

You deleted a picture on a wikipedia page called "Tim Schulz". It is my own work and I did not know how to upload it any other way than Flickr. How can I upload it on wikipedia common? While deleting pictures, you should give advices how to properly upload because people just are going to upload it again and again. And make you life harder. Harijan2018 (talk) 17:40, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Your upload File:Tim Schulz profile.jpg had been tagged by another patroler under the suspicion of Flickr washing, as this image has metadata (EXIF) which show "Jeff Zimmerman" as author and was uploaded to a one purpose Flickr account in the name of Pierre Mangold created shortly before it was uploaded to Commons. While this is not absolute proof, it is a rather solid suspicion, justifying a speedy deletion. I am sorry that the nominator did not notify you in advance about this deletion and I missed to notice this.

about pic of Pierre Milza... Why do you remove it?

I was Pierre's friend... I was his friend for over 20 years! and it's me who took this picture years ago in front of his house of Miniac-morvan ...

I was already obliged to give these explanations a few years ago when I deposited this photo the first time!

With regard to File:Perre Milza.jpg, which has been deleted 4 times already by different administrators: when you uploaded it in 2011, you claimed it to be work by Perre Milza[12] How fits this to "it's me who took this picture"?

Österreichische Sparkassenzeitung | Cover Bild[edit]


Sie haben mein Coverbild aufgrund von Copyright gelöscht. Wir sind Herausgeber der Sparkassenzeitung und alle Rechte liegen bei uns. Wie kann ich also das Coverbild wieder hinzufügen?


— Preceding unsigned comment added by Ksspv1988 (talk • contribs) 13:57, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
Hallo @Ksspv1988:,
ein Überprüfer der neuen Uploads hat das Bild als mögliche Urheberrechtsverletzung markiert, weil Magazin-Titelseiten üblicherweise nicht unter einer freien Lizenz stehen. Ich habe es daraufhin gelöscht, weil die Einschätzung plausibel war.
Das Problem ist, dass sich hier jeder x-Beliebige unter dem Benutzernamen Sparkassendirektor oder Rolf-E. Breuer o.ä. anmelden kann. Wenn du oder deine Sparkasse vorhabt, noch mehr Bilder auf Commons hochzuladen oder auf der deutschsprachigen Wikipedia etwas mitzuschreiben, dann ist eine sog. Benutzerverifizierung zu empfehlen. Dann würde das das "offizielle" Wikipedia-Benutzerkonto der Sparkasse Dingsbums.
Falls es bei ein paar hochgeladenen Bildern bleiben wird, dann lohnt sich dieser Aufwand wohl nicht. Dann müsste der bei euch dazu rechtlich Befugte für das jeweilige Bild (oder auch mehrere zusammen) eine Bestätigung an (auf deutsch) schicken. Der Ablauf ist hier Commons:OTRS/de beschrieben; eine Email-Vorlage für die Bestätigung findest du hier: Commons:E-Mail-Vorlagen#Einverständniserklärung (Rechte-Inhaber). Ich würde dir unbedingt empfehlen, auch für das bereits hochgeladene Logo euer Sparkasse eine solche Genehmigung zu schicken, weil sonst früher oder später mit einer Löschung zu rechnen ist, da in angelsächsischen Ländern die für einen urheberrechtl. Schutz erforderliche Gestaltungshöhe viel niedriger liegt als in D. und A.
Sobald die Genehmigung unterwegs ist, gib mir wieder Bescheid, damit ich das Coverbild wiederherstellen kann. --Túrelio (talk) 16:33, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

ich habe die Bestätigung gerade losgeschickt.

Possible mistake on deletion of one of my files[edit]

Would it be possible to undo your deletion?

Requesting Permission

Anyone may, without requesting permission, use original figures or tables published in PNAS for noncommercial and educational use (i.e., in a review article, in a book that is not for sale), provided that the full journal reference is cited and, for articles published in volumes 90–105 (1993–2008), "Copyright (copyright year) National Academy of Sciences." Commercial reuse of figures and tables (i.e., in promotional materials, in a textbook for sale) requires permission from PNAS.

AriasUploads (talk) 05:15, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi @AriasUploads:
the problem is the cited clause "for noncommercial and educational use". Our policy COM:L requires that uploads are free also for commercial use. I am aware that this is not easy to understand, as Wikipedia is perceived as a non-commercial project. However, the decision was taken very early and we cannot change it. So, the only possibility would be to contact PNAS and ask them whether they or the author would be willing to license the needed diagrams/images under a CC-BY or CC-BY-SA license. --Túrelio (talk) 06:50, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Good day Túrelio

As I explained to Vycl1994: I have taken the picture of the logo myself. However if it is a violation of copyrights, then I'm happy to remove it. I belief in ethical and legal behavior.

Hi, I'm a bit confused by what you mean about the violation of fair use. The screenshow shows an open-source bulletin board software running on a open-source terminal emulator software (PuTTY). I seriously cannot understand how screenshot of open-source services on open-source software is considered proprietary. Kindly elaborate as I do not understand, thanks.

Hi RAMChYLD, well, in your description of the image there was no indication of the original software/material being under a free license. The screenshot-problem-tag {{screenshot}} expressedly requests: "If the screenshot shows a program or other material that is itself under a free license like GPL, please indicate this with the {{free screenshot}} tag."

Re: File:Monument for the Yoshino Immigrant Village in Ji'an.jpg[edit]

I saw you deleted File:Monument for the Yoshino Immigrant Village in Ji'an.jpg. Your reason for deleting is: "There is no freedom of panorama exception for anything other than buildings in Taiwan." But I still don't understand why it was deleted. I only know that its copyright is "CC BY-SA 2.0"(See: [17]), and because I follow "Well-known_licenses" rule.--Kai3952 (talk) 09:53, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

I am ready to upload this photo: [18]. Can you tell me why I can't upload it?--Kai3952 (talk) 09:56, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi Kai3952,
the user on Flickr put "his" photo of the monument under a CC license. So, formally everything seems to be o.k. However, his photo depicts a work of somebody else, a monument, which is copyrightable and likely still in copyright. So, actually, the Flickr user wasn't even legally entitled to put "his" photo under a free license, as it violates the copyright of the sculptor. That is a rather frequent problem on Flickr, as many people don't have an idea about copyright and many other don't bother about it.
So, with both images, the deleted one and the to-be-uploaded one, we can discuss in a deletion-discussion whether the depicted work is indeed above the threshold of originality, as required per copyright-law of the respective country, or whether the sculptor, if known, is already dead for >70 years. --Túrelio (talk) 10:21, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Even so, you should discuss first before deleting any files. The law of Taiwan is stipulated for 50 years, and not 70 years. See: [19] and [20]. The problem is that no one knows when the sculptor died, because this monument was established by the government during the Taiwan under Japanese rule(1985-1945). See: [21]. So you tell me, how to know "who" died more than 50 years?--Kai3952 (talk) 13:00, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
"So you tell me," - Sorry, but that's not my job. It's the job of the uploader to convince Commons, i.e. present evidence, that an upload is o.k. If you want to do the research, I am willing to restore the deleted image, but will put it into a regular DR. --Túrelio (talk) 13:04, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Do you think this article is evidence, or is this law?--Kai3952 (talk) 18:11, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
I have no idea what these texts are about, as I don't read chinese. So, it doesn't make to continue this discussion on my talkpage. I'll put the image into an DR, so you can invite other users with knowledge about the applicable law. --Túrelio (talk) 18:19, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Here you go: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Monument for the Yoshino Immigrant Village in Ji'an.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 18:21, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure what the "evidence" you refered to is.--Kai3952 (talk) 21:34, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
The CC license on Flickr is valid only if the depicted monument is already in the public domain (per local copyright law). That's what you have to demonstrate to get a keep decision from my admin colleagues. Please continue this discussion on the DR-page, as I asked you already once. --Túrelio (talk) 21:40, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio, wie geht's nun weiter? --Simsalabimbam (talk) 06:32, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Da er sich explizit weigert und nach meinem Hinweis auch weiter gemacht hat, zumindest 1x, und sogar Einsatz von Sockenpuppen angekündigt hat, macht es keinen Sinn mehr, das hier im Dialog zu behandeln. Das muss auf ein Admin-Board. File:Brickegickel-2018-Ffm-0871.jpg habe ich jetzt zunächst mal zurückgesetzt und für 1 Monat vollgesperrt. --Túrelio (talk) 06:46, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Two image files from the film Carnation Revolution[edit]

Hi Túrelio,

These images have been drawn by Siné for the film in my house in May 1974. I’m the film director. They will have no other use but in the film, they are part of its contents.

What may I do?

Thanks, Portunick 11h 23 min April 22, 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Portunick:,
hmm, not easy. Siné died only in 2016, whereby his works are in copyright til end of 2086. If these works were created for the movie, there was possibly some sort of contract/agreement that artists agreed to the use of their works by the movie company. So, you need contemplate for yourself, do you - as the film director - have enough rights to distribute these works under a free license? If you are sure about that, then send a statement of permission from your business/official email addressto (OTRS), in which you need to elaborate a bit why also you have the copyright, mention the filenames and the choosen license. OTRS volunteers will then process this permission, eventually contact you and then put a permission "ticket" on the image pages. In case you come to the conclusion to send such a permission, the moment you send it, drop me a note, I will then undelete both images. --Túrelio (talk) 07:49, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Images to be review[edit]

Hello Túrelio, could you please review these 14 images. if any problem let me know.

Thanks ZI Jony (talk) 18:42, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi @ZI Jony:, I've no experience in reviewing images on the Bollywood-Hungama ticket. So, I would first need to read myself into the terms. As I don't have time for this today, you will get your files reviewed faster if you ask another Bollywood-Hungama experienced admin. --Túrelio (talk) 19:12, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of File:Jan Vermeer van Delft 014.jpg[edit]

A couple of minutes ago you deleted Jan Vermeer van Delft 014.jpg as being a (scaled down) duplicate of Johannes Vermeer - Lady at the Virginal with a Gentleman, 'The Music Lesson' - Google Art Project.jpg. I object to these quick-and-dirty deletions. I have no way to check this claim anymore. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 07:27, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

I've temp-undeleted the image version, uploaded by you, however, without the description, as mediawiki wouldn't process that this moment. See, if that's enough to compare. --Túrelio (talk) 07:36, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
The image is used on several pages so there is no reason to delete. Besides, to be exact it is not een scaled down duplicate of the Google image. Who requested this deletion anyway? Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 07:39, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
WRT: the image is used you may misunderstand. The image wasn't simply deleted, it was processed as duplicate, i.e. all its uses were replaced by the target image. So, that's not really a problem.
It had been tagged as duplicate by User:John a s. The duplicate process allows to visually compare both images, which I did, and found the duplicate-claim at least not unreasonable. Anyway, if you insist I can try to restore it completely (including description history), if mediawiki allows me. --Túrelio (talk) 07:48, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
Yes please, and the deletion procedure should be different. This is not the first time an image was tagged as duplicate and in no time deleted. Duplicates should be treated as normal deletion requests. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 08:11, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
✓ Done. You won't see the dupe-tagging and my following 3 edits, as I restored only all edits before the tagging. Luckily it worked. --Túrelio (talk) 08:19, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

File:Logo Hagen Aktiv.jpg[edit]

The page said that I have one week to set a license for the image.

I am sure that I can upload it here, I was just going to officially make sure it's possible to set it to public domain in the next few days.

You deleted the file in less than a day. --D3d9 (talk) 16:31, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi @D3d9:,
das Logo war als copyvio markiert, nicht als no-license. Auf Commons sind wir mit Logos generell weniger "großzügig" als auf :de, weil die für einen urheberrechtlichen Schutz erforderliche Schöpfungshöhe des Logos in manchen Ländern (z.B. England) deutlich niedriger liegt als in Deutschland. Ergänze bitte noch die Quellenangabe, "Hagen Aktiv" ist etwas zu wenig; gibt es keine URL? --Túrelio (talk) 07:43, 28 April 2018 (UTC)
Danke für die Hinweise. Was soll ich in die Quellenangabe schreiben, wenn diese Datei nicht genau so online zu finden ist? Die Datei (und eine andere, die ich bald hochlade) (Edit: Für die habe ich eine Quellenangabe gefunden, ich warte nun, dass die Lizenz dazugeschrieben wird --D3d9 (talk) 14:26, 28 April 2018 (UTC)) wurde mir per E-Mail zugeschickt. Danke --D3d9 (talk) 09:57, 28 April 2018 (UTC)

then can you please tell me how should I upload the pictures of celebrities for their page? please reply ASAP.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Saad123890 (talk • contribs) 09:13, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
Your recent 2 uploads are suspected to be copyvios and not own work, contrary to your upload-statement. This violates not only our policy COM:L, but may also expose you and re-users of these uploads to litigation for copyright infringement. So, in the future, try to take a shot of these celebrities truely by yourself or, if not possible, try to find a freely-licensed (CC-BY, CC-BY-SA; but not: CC-BY-NC) image, for example on Flickr. --Túrelio (talk) 09:19, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

ok got it i am new to all this i don't know how to upload pictures of celebrities which were present on their Instagram for public use. because they have public their account and the pictures they post can be used by their fans. so does that still comes under copyright violation?

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Saad123890 (talk • contribs) 09:23, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
"Put to the public" does in no way equal "being under a free license". In general, images on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. are not "free" in the sense of "under a free license". There needs to be an expressed statement such as "licensed under CC-BY" or similar. --Túrelio (talk) 09:26, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

ok should what should I do now? remove the pictures and upload those who are taken by me or copyright?

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Saad123890 (talk • contribs) 09:28, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
You cannot remove your own uploads. An admin will take care of that. For future uploads see my explanations above. --Túrelio (talk) 09:32, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Kopilot (talk) 07:27, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Hallo @Kopilot:,
reine Löschvorgänge werden nicht als normaler Edit gewertet, sondern nur in der Log-Liste erfasst (ich weiß nicht, ob die für nicht-Admins sichtbar ist). Die Löschung der gen. Datei erfolgte letztlich auf direkten Wunsch des Hochladers, der selbst eine mögliche URV befürchtet hat (Indiz: Wasserzeichen RT im Foto). --Túrelio (talk) 07:41, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
"Wasserzeichen"? Das war doch vermutlich ein Foto von einer RT-Fernsehsendung. Wo ist das Problem? Kopilot (talk) 08:51, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
Mag sein. Screenshots oder Captures von TV-Sendungen sind per se eine URV, schließlich reproduziert man lediglich etwas, das jemand anderer produziert hat. Das wird auch nicht dadurch besser, dass jemand es unter einer angeblich freien Lizenz auf Flickr hochgeladen hat[24].--Túrelio (talk) 09:31, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
Achso, wenn Fotos von Fernsehsendungen generell als URV gelten, OK. Nach einem möglichen Ersatz muss ich wohl JD fragen. Kopilot (talk) 10:11, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

PC Caucus Services[edit]

Hi! Should these two images be marked as possible copyvio or DR: Michael Harris and Laurie Scott? Exif has "PC Caucus Services" as Copyright holder. The photographer is Tavis Nembhard and he released Oosterhoff's image to Commons in 2017 via OTRS. Both images are marked as Own Work and they're definitely not that. Thoughts? // sikander { talk } 13:23, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

I've tagged both as no-perm now. Thanks for notifying. If you are in contact with Tavis Nembhard, you might consider asking him directly, whether he is willing to release them (with proper attribution, of course). --Túrelio (talk) 13:52, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Túrelio, here you go again[edit]

Túrelio, here you go again. You are sitting on two chairs. Proposing to delete a file and deleting it in no-time. Quick-and-dirty! This time it is File:Zaak Magere Josje (1959).jpg You claim it is an exact or scaled down version of File:Rechtszaak Magere Josje publieke belangstelling, Bestanddeelnr 910-8331.jpg but that is not true. The latter is just an copy from the Nationaal Archief. The first I have worked on, like scratch and dust removal. Exposure correction and cropping. I am not quite sure what exactly I did on this image but I always clean my uploads. Please stop that. Use a normal DR if you need to, but don't sit on two chairs. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 21:53, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

You got your first conclusion wrong. I did not nominate the file as duplicate[25]. I simply processed the nomination by User:Vysotsky. So, I do not sit on 2 chairs. SD of the duplicate is an integral part of the duplicate-process.
After restoring "your" version, apart from that is functionally a crop of the original, I don't see any difference between the two. --Túrelio (talk) 06:42, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
In Category:Duplicate currently further 19 images from the Anefo series are waiting to be processed as duplicates. Feel free to check them. --Túrelio (talk) 06:54, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
I am sorry for the harsh words, Túrelio. I will talk to Vysotsky. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 07:53, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Apart from being cropped, obvious changes are rotation clockwise, and removal of scratches. But being cropped by itself does contradict the claim of duplicity. This procedure is to quick-and-dirty. Something has to change. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 07:59, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
I do not disagree about that. As a first step you could propose at Commons talk:Deletion policy to add something like "a crop of an image is not its duplicate" to Commons:Deletion_policy#Duplicates. I would support that. --Túrelio (talk) 08:24, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Hallo ZeusUlrich247,
die Ehrenamtler, die sich um die Bearbeitung von eingeschickten Genehmigungen kümmern, das sog. OTRS-Team, ist z. Zt. leider völlig überarbeitet, weshalb es dort einen Rückstand von etwa 70 Tagen (!) gibt. Das ist natürlich sehr unerfreulich, aber es gibt keine andere Lösung als auf das Abarbeiten der Warteschlange zu warten.

Sorry, I don't have any further details as what was posted by the nominator "speedydelete: as per this request on OTRS also if you delete this pelase also delete File:1990 Vauxhall Nova L 1.2 Rear.jpg for privacy reason." I too don't have access to OTRS. You might ask the nominating OTRS-volunteer whether it was mainly about the car number, as it my be blurred. --Túrelio (talk) 06:26, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
Is there a way to make a request for it to be undeleted since I heard that can be done on the Commons. I want to try and get the images undeleted since I think they been wrongfully deleted and got valid reason why but I don't know how to appeal. I'm currently asking the volunteer and waiting for a respond. --Vauxford (talk) 08:19, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi @Vauxford:, as these deletions were performed due to OTRS-ticket, I would ask you to take the regular way: Commons:UR. --Túrelio (talk) 10:01, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Undelete request.[edit]

So has anything been decided whether my files be undeleted? There two that support, I just don't want this ended up archived without a conclusion. --Vauxford (talk) 18:53, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Well, the decision needs to happen on Commons:Undeletion_requests#1990_Vauxhall_Nova_L_1.2. As I had deleted the files, it wouldn't be ideal for me to decide this request. No, AFAIK, open request don't end up archived. IMO, there was no real objection against uploading a "censored" version of the images. Do you have them ready? However, IMO more important is the potential "risk" for you which I mentioned in my comment. Did you check that in any way? --Túrelio (talk) 19:34, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
I still have the original images. Davey2010 another user from the UK putted something about it being fine if that make any sense. But what do I need to check in your comment that could pose a risk? Just want to double check. --Vauxford (talk) 19:41, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
If I understood you earliest comment right, the car owner has RL-identified you to some degree; if that is correct, if we re-upload the images, even without visible car-plate, and she gets aware of it, he/she might try to put further pressure on you, by complaining to your university, hire a lawyer, whatever is possible under UK law. If that happens, though probably very unlikely, you will be on your own. I just wanted to ensure that you take an "informed decision" instea of getting badly surprised. --Túrelio (talk) 06:23, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
@Túrelio: They be fine if the plate get censored which I can easily do. It very unlikely they would check the image again. In one of the emails we exchanged they were asking to blur the registration plate. Unfortunately they sent that email 2 days after I found out my pictures got deleted so I was unable to respond with their request. Another thing. What should I do if it does get undeleted. Do I update the file with the edited picture or do I reupload the edited picture myself? --Vauxford (talk) 12:20, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
Just to add I was unaware that the owner had apparently found out - Unless you took it on their driveway then no there is no law that states "You cannot take a picture of a car on a public road" and as such if it went to court or whatever the owner wouldn't have a leg to stand on,
You took an image on a public road - They found said image and complained - You reuploaded said image censoring the plate to protect their identity - The judge would see that as you listening to their concerns and taking reasonable measure to protect their identity whilst at the same time providing an image free to use for everyone so no if she doesn't like it tough luck,
Just to add on the driveway bit - Obviously taking an image on a driveway is a no no as you're literally telling millions of users where that vehicle is whereas if it's outside the house ... well it could be absolutely anyones house couldn't it?,
It's no different to taking a picture of a building or a bus and as I said there's no law that prevents you from taking an image providing it's on the road.
Not sure if wholy related but Vauxford if you've told that person what your username is here and all that then I would suggest you refrain from doing that in future - It's no one's business as to why you're taking a picture but it is courtesy to kinda give an explanation (I'm a car photographer will do),
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 15:24, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
@Davey2010: Couldn't of said it any better, it was a lesson learnt. It not the first time I had feuds with car owners. I was just so humbled to have spot and let the owner know but sadly it was with the wrong person. When it comes to driveways, especially ones that are sticking out and in the public. Since my images are always cropped, most of the time it result of showing little to no details of what the house looked like, I do say what town or city it was in but that it. I most definitely not going to inform any future car owner again unless they understand the purpose why I photographed it. Although the chances of that are low. --Vauxford (talk) 21:31, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi Vauxford, FWIW If anyone approaches me I just say I'm a photographer .... I never mention my Commons stuff or indeeed the Commons website because like I said it has nothing to do with anyone,
I would still avoid putting towns as anyone can go on Google Streetview and hunt around the town (and worst case scenario someone could see this image and do all sorts to the car!) - Not saying that could happen mind but you don't know how low people can be!,
Anyway as it was taken in a car park It could well be private land which would mean by rights they can refuse photography but if they only questioned or queried you and didn't say "Sorry, No photography here) then you're allowed to photograph and so again they wouldn't have a leg to stand on,
If they send you further emails demanding you take it down tell them to take a running jump (but in nicer words) and then ignore them from here onwards,
Cheers, –Davey2010Talk 22:44, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

File:Logótipo OE com Fundo.png[edit]

This logo was created by me and a friend in collaboration for the 4th edition of a project we joined in college 2 years ago, in the hope of revamping its image which was out of date.

The user that reported it upon checking with google saw the logo on the facebook page and thought i had simply just stolen it and claimed as my own.

I expected that the description where i mention the file was based on the origin of the project to give proof of "ownership".

The file was added as we are expanding the project and to facilitate acess to our resources, we intended to create a wikipedia page for it, thus entering the file to use on said page.

Is there any specific proof I can provide to show that I am both one of the creators and I am related to the project from which the logo is used for?

(I am a decently new wiki user so I am not up to par on the best way to showcase such things)

--PfmAleixo (talk) 17:00, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi @PfmAleixo:, you are rather correct in your analysis of the process.
Now, does this "Olimpíadas da Economia" or the college project have an own email address or facebook page? If yes, just send or make the responsible person send an email to confirming that the logo, which had been uploaded as File:Logótipo OE com Fundo.png to Commons, is your own work and is correct to be released under the choosen CC-BY-SA 4.0 license. When this has happened, drop me a note. In between you may start with the wikipedia article about this project. --Túrelio (talk) 19:03, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
Hello again, regarding confirmation I was told the email was already sent and we're hoping for a positive reply.

Hallo Túrelio,
kannst Du mir bitte zur Meldung auf diesem Bild File:Cynorkis squamosa, Habenarrinae, Orchidée (17014558304).jpg etwas sagen
und wie man damit umgehen muss? Danke und Grüße. Orchi (talk) 19:37, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Orchi,
ich hatte selbst bislang wenig mit diesem Problem zu tun. Ursache ist wohl die schwachsinnige Einführung dieser sog. PDM-"Lizenz", die wir auf Commons wegen der damit verbundenen Unklarheiten nicht einfach so akzeptieren. Eine gewisse Handlungsanleitung findest du in den beiden Aufklappmenüs des PDM-Bausteins auf er Bildseite. Wenn das Bild halbwegs nützlich ist, würde ich dir empfehlen, den Flickr-User direkt zu kontaktieren und zu fragen, ob das Foto von ihm selbst stammt und, falls ja, ob er dir eine echte CC-0-Lizenz (oder halt unsere üblichen CC-BY-SA 4.0) für den Upload auf Commons gibt. (Alternativ könnte er auch die Lizenz auf Flickr umstellen) Tut er das, leitest du die Email einfach an OTRS weiter, passt die Lizenz des Bildes an und setzt {{OTRS pending}} darauf. --Túrelio (talk) 20:24, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
...danke für die Hinweise. Scheint mir etwas kompliziert zu sein. Zu Flickr habe ich keinen Zugriff. Grüße. Orchi (talk) 20:31, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
Es geht eigentlich: Anmeldung bei Flickr sollte - Dank DSGVO - jetzt rel. risikolos sein. Dann gehst du auf die Benutzerseite und klickst auf das Briefkasten-Symbol rechts neben dem Namen. --Túrelio (talk) 20:35, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

File deletion File:Rest in Fear at Metaldays 2015.jpg[edit]

Hey there, you've deleted that file because it was copied from facebook - that's ok. But I'm a member of the band shown in the picture and we took it from our facebook page ( The picture was taken by a friend of us for no professional or commercial use; what would you recommend to do to keep it on the Wikipedia article about Rest in Fear?

Update on the Vauxhall Nova image[edit]

I uploaded the images but with the plate censored. However I wasn't sure whether to rename with a different name or use the existing name. I think I made a mistake by using it existing file name it ended up displaying the images in it full-size. Now I'm worried I violated a Commons rule as put by Jeff G. --Vauxford (talk) 22:00, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

No worry, as the UR was going to result in undelete anyway. An admin-colleague has already closed your UR request and put the OTRS-ticket on the image talkpages. --Túrelio (talk) 07:26, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
@Túrelio: Thank you. I thought it was better because if I leave it to be undeleted it will be the uncensored version. I sorta got into a mix up with Jeff G and told me he going to defer to you. --Vauxford (talk) 07:56, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

File:Dreamy Evening.jpg and others[edit]


How can you say that this photo and others by the same author are not copyvio as the copyright is straight on the photos themselves? Anybody can use a wiki name identical to the one of the real author and claim that it is their work. It needs at minimum an OTRS authorization.

Pierre cb (talk) 18:12, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Quite some contributors put visible copyright-watermarks on their uploads. Even I have some uploads invisibly watermarked. So, putting a visible watermark on an upload is no evidence of copyvio, especially as nearly all his uploads carry the same watermark. For each of the tagged images of this uploader I've checked Google-Images and TinEye: Zero hits. So, it's obviously not a blatant copyvio. I have asked the uploader to consider uploading these images without a visible watermark: User_talk:BilalAhmed5092#your_uploads. Of course, we could add a request to confirm to OTRS. --Túrelio (talk) 18:52, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

A question of copyright[edit]

Hi. I noticed you'd deleted File:Sir-Henry-Monck-Mason-Moore.jpg some time back, citing "Copyright violation: No evidence of permission. The EXIF data includes this note: "Unauthorised reproduction prohibited. For authorisation contact"" as the reason for doing so. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but isn't the copyright on the image expired, given that it was produced and published in 1942? - ක - (talk) 17:15, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Jesuschristonacamel,
thanks for the links, which weren't included in the image-description. As the depicted person, the actual image-owner and the artist are in U.K., UK copyright law has to be applied. Per en:List_of_countries'_copyright_lengths#Table_of_copyright_durations_by_country, the U.K. has the usual 70 years after death of the author. However, who is the author? The source says "by Bassano Ltd" and "active 1901-1962". So, if we take the 1962, copyright would end in 2033. But, Bassano Ltd is a company, founded by en:Alexander Bassano in 1850, who died in 1912.[29] So, he himself cannot be the photographer. Overall, it's no that easy. If you are interested enough, do some reseasrch and open a request at COM:UR. --Túrelio (talk) 06:42, 7 June 2018 (UTC)


Hi! You reverted my edit in File:Усадебные постройки - panoramio.jpg with the reason "in several jurisdictions the removal of a copyright-watermark is not permitted". But the watermark that is in this photo "19.08.2016. Иван Бай" is not a copyright-watermark, as it doesn't contain "copyright" symbol.

Please explain whether the files

should also be reverted to watermarked versions? --Jarash (talk) 16:57, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Jarash: Commons:Watermarks "In 2014, a 3rd-level court in Germany ruled that the removal of a watermark, which contained copyright information, violated the provision "You must keep intact all copyright notices for the Work" of the CC license (in this case CC BY-NC-2.0)."
However, that was a Creative Commons 2.0 license. The files linked are 3.0 and the license text regarding this was changed in 3.0. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:16, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi Jarash, in addition to what Alexis wrote, this is issue is a sort of judgment call. As recorded in Commons:Watermarks#Legal_issues_with_the_removal_of_watermarks, the legal dep. of the WMF some years ago gave the opinion that the removal of copyright-watermark (no watermarks in general) may violate the DMCA law. Shortly thereafter and completely indepedently, a German court decided in the same direction. Therefore, I usually advise people, better not to remove such watermarks and I ask users, who upload own images with such watermarks, to consider uploading them without a visible watermark. So, my action has a valid rationale IMO, but it's not a policy, it's not a "you must". --Túrelio (talk) 20:29, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio, was sollte diese Reversion? Trzęsacz (talk) 18:35, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Trzęsacz,
puh, das ist schon so lange her. Wenn ich mich recht erinnere, war mir die Datei beim Abarbeiten der Dateien in cat:copyvios aufgefallen. Du hattest als Autor/Quelle angegeben. Das Gemälde ist aber von Monet und damit PD-old. Bei 2-dimensionalen PD-Old-Werken erlauben wir per PD-Art den Upload auch wenn die Reproduktion von einer formal unfreien Quelle kommt, weil - nach US-Urheberrecht - die treue Reproduktion einer 2-dim. Vorlage kein neues Urheberrecht erzeugt. --Túrelio (talk) 19:41, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Das stimmt. Aber dieses Bild ist nicht von Monet. Es ist noch nicht einmal eine Kopie nach dessen Gemälde von 1873 sondern nur eine Adapption des Motivs und stammt von ca. 2010/2011. Von besagter Web site wird das Bild als Muttertagsgeschenk vertrieben. Die hier hochgeladene Version ist also die treue Reproduktion eines Bildes von 2010 oder 2011. Siehe auch bei der Hochladequelle Trzęsacz (talk) 01:31, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
Deine verlinkte Website sagt zwar "Poppy Field in Argenteuil by Monet". Aber egal; ich bin kein Kunstexperte und habe auch keine Zeit dafür. Dann sollte das Bild in einer reguläre LD gehen, wo z.B. entschieden werden muss, ob der "Adaptation" tatsächlich ein eigenes Urheberrecht zugestanden werden muss. Das ist auch in deinem Interesse, weil bei einer Schnelllöschung das Risiko besteht, dass das Bild irgendwann wieder hochgeladen wird und die Chose von vorne beginnt. Da du dich mit dem Bild schon mehr beschäftigt hast, scheint es mir klüger, wenn du einen (regulären) LA stellst als wenn ich das mache. --Túrelio (talk) 06:26, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
Ok, hat schon jemand getan. --Trzęsacz (talk) 08:15, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

File:Nick Jones.jpeg[edit]

Hi, I've re-requested deletion of File:Nick Jones.jpeg with updated rationale. Would you be able to take another look? The previous source was poorly chosen but it's obvious this user did not take this photo. Anarchyte (work | talk) 12:56, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Anarchyte,
it's often rather difficult to prove the copyvio-status of uploads as old as this one. When I reverted your first nomination, it was not as I would have been convinced that this upload is clean. Anyway, now I searched for myself and finally found a true pre-publication from 2013: Upload now deleted. --Túrelio (talk) 13:28, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Would you be able to restore File:Lusius-malfoyi-lateral.jpg please? The photographer has uploaded it twice, and I can see by the logs first as CC-BY-SA, then CC-BY; the second time he linked to the Landcare page which also states images are released under a CC-BY licence. But it's been taken down both times. —Giantflightlessbirds (talk) 11:18, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Well, the 1st upload was claimed as own work by the uploader. The 2nd upload, which I've restored now, has the problem that its EXIF data state "CC-BY-NC-ND 3.0", which contradicts the expressed statement of the source "© This image by Landcare Research is published under the CC-BY 4.0 international licence unless otherwise specified." --Túrelio (talk) 12:42, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Willy Mommer-Seite: Freigabe des Bildmaterials[edit]

Willy Mommer-Seite: Freigabe des Bildmaterials Guten Tag Tùrelio,

auf Empfehlung von McGill wende ich mich an Sie, um mir eventuell in der oben genannten Angelegenheit weiterzuhelfen. Hier die E-Mail, die mich seitens eines Wiki-Commons German namens <Name red.>, erreichte. Den Wortlaut dieser E-Mail übermittelte ich bereits an McGill, der mir riet, Sie zu kontaktieren.:

Forwarded message ---------- From: Permissions - German Wikipedia <> Date: 2018-06-20 16:13 GMT+02:00 Subject: Re: [Ticket#2018020710009647] Freigabe Bildmaterial Willy Mommer To: Mommer Marie-Claire <>

Sehr geehrte Frau Mommer,

vielen Dank für Ihre Nachricht zu den u.g. Bildern. Sie schreiben bei den Bildern auf der Beschreibungsseite - zur Quelle "Bestand Familienarchiv Marie-Claire Mommer", - zum Urheber schreiben Sie (oder der Uploader): "unbekannt".

Der materielle Besitz eines Werks reicht allerdings nicht aus, um eine solche Freigabeerklärung abzugeben; vielmehr können dies nur Inhaber des vollumfänglichen Nutzungsrechts als immateriellem Gut machen. Es kann durchaus sein, dass Sie sich auch im Besitz der ausreichenden Nutzungsrechte befinden — zum Beispiel wenn der Urheber bereits verstorben und Sie der (alleinige) Erbe des Urhebers sind. In einem solchen Fall sind Sie zur Freigabe befähigt; geben Sie uns doch bitte kurz Bescheid. Wenn das Foto im Jahr 1959 gemacht wurde und der Fotograf wirklich unbekannt ist, ist es zwar möglich, dass er nicht mehr lebt, aber die Schutzfrist von 70 Jahren post mortem ist mit Sicherheit noch nicht abgelaufen.

Sollten Sie unsicher sein oder wissen, dass Sie nicht über ein vollumfängliches Nutzungsrecht verfügen, möchte ich Sie bitten, mir die folgenden Fragen zu beantworten:

1. Ist Ihnen der Urheber des Werks bekannt?

2. Sofern der Urheber bereits verstorben ist, können Sie mir das Jahr seines Todes nennen?

3. Sofern der Urheber noch lebt, können Sie einen Kontakt zwischen uns und dem Urheber herstellen oder alternativ direkt eine Freigabeerklärung des Urhebers erhalten? In letzterem Fall sollte sich der Urheber aber über die eventuellen Konsequenzen einer solchen Erklärung bewusst sein, da dies die kommerzielle Verwendbarkeit des Werks unter Umständen erheblich einschränken könnte.

Eine zweidimensionale Reproduktion eines geschützten Werks (z.B. Fotografie, Scan) ist nach deutschem Recht übrigens eine triviale Leistung und stellt kein eigenes Werk dar, damit ist eine solche Reproduktion nicht eigenständig schützbar.

Ich bedanke mich im Voraus für Ihre Mühen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

<Name red.>

'In der Zwischenzeit sind wir aber bereits bzgl. des Bildmaterials und seiner Urhebersuche tätig geworden und haben Folgendes herausgefunden: Hier meine Antwort vom 25.6.18 an Herrn Heinrich:

Sehr geehrter Herr Heinrich,

ich danke Ihnen für Ihre aufschlussreiche E-Mail.

Der Klarheit halber beantworte ich Ihnen Ihre Fragen, soweit möglich (jedoch mit den nötigen Erklärungen dazu):

1.- 3.

  a) Foto Preisübergabe
  b) Foto Chor mit Dirigent beim Concorso/Arezzo 1959
  c) Willy Mommer mit Résistance-Orden als Pianist
  d) Schallplattenhülle Königliches Männerquartettt
  e) Willy Mommer Studie als Dirigent

Zu Fotos a), b), c), e) sind die Urheber bekannt: a), b) = Studio Fotografia Gaburri Arezzo (besteht nicht mehr). Offenbar ist der Nachlass dieses berühmten Fotografen (samt Foto-Studio) im Archiv "Archivio storico fotografico Aretino (ANCOS, Via Tiziano 8 in Arezzo) erhalten. Über einen uns bekannten Mittelsmann in Arezzo (Pietro Ponticelli) versuchen wir, Näheres zu erfahren, haben die Bilder dorthin gemailt und um Freigabe bzw. Erklärung der Bilder im "Public Domain" gebeten.

Zu Foto c): der Urbeber heißt Felix Vanderheyden, Eupen. Todesjahr unbekannt, sind noch auf der Suche auch nach eventuellen Rechtsnachfolgern, falls vorhanden....

Zu Foto d): es ist ein von uns persönlich angefertigtes Foto der Originalhülle...

Zu Foto e): Familienfoto aus den 60er Jahren von einem verstorbenen Sänger seines Chores aufgenommen.

Meine grundsätzliche Frage an SIE: Alle Bilder wurden von uns gescannt und als Scan an Wiki übermittelt. Löst sich das Problem dadurch nicht automatisch (Ihre Anmerkung zur zweidimensionale Reproduktion)???

Ich bedanke mich freundlichst für Ihre Bemühungen und würde gerne bald von Ihnen hören, dass die so ansprechend gestaltete Willy-Mommer-Seite auf Wikipedia wieder vollständig zurückzufinden sein wird.

Mit freundlichem Gruß Marie-Claire Mommer

Und dann ein Nachtrag (WICHTIG auch vom 25.6.18): Sehr geehrter Herr Heinrich,

NACHTRAG zu Bild c): Willy Mommer mit Résistance-Orden als Pianist

Den rechtlichen Nachfolger, Sohn des Fotografen Felix Vanderheyden, Benno Vanderheyden/Rixensart habe ich gefunden und wir erhalten umgehend eine Freigabe seinerseits.

Können Sie mir bitte ein solches Freigabe-Formular übermitteln?

In diesem Sinne stände ja einer Freigabe der Bilder c), d) und e) nichts mehr im Wege. Oder? Und dies unabhängig von der möglichen Freigabe für "gescannte Fotos/Bilder"...

Im Voraus lieben Dank

Können Sie mir da beistehen? Dafür im voraus herzlichen Dank Marie-Claire Mommer

PS: gestern stellte ich fest, dass eines der Fotos wieder in "Commons" aufgetaucht war (und dies über einen gewissen "Emmah" vor 6 Tagen). Dieses Foto wurde heute wieder von McGill in den Haupttext eingearbeitet.

Help request[edit]

Hi, Túrelio, good admin. A request: Would you kindly check the history of my TP and make invisible a "contribution"; reverted by Sakhalinio, another good admin (in TR:WP). It comes accompanied by a pic, you will not miss it; and I do not want to repeat or give links to words of offence. Thank you very much in advance. --E4024 (talk) 10:49, 26 June 2018 (UTC) (Note: I waited for a serious sanction to the offender; but I realize my understanding of civility and voluntary work are different than that of the general in Commons. Therefore no need to wait more or keep proofs for anything.)

I am in a hurry. Please check whether I hid the right versions. BTW, did you intentionally leave the goat-image on your talkpage? --Túrelio (talk) 12:35, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks! Alaska Based (talk) 22:32, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Alaska Based,
I understand the political/historical value and importance of these images. However, none of them has been credibly released under a free license. The mere publication of a photo in the web has no effect on its copyright status, i.e. it does make it free to use. Only the author/photographer can legitimately release his/her photo under a free license. With photos of such content, the photographer will surely try to remain unknown, in order to avoid reprisal from the goverment. If you want to use these photo on :en wikipedia, you should try to claim them as fair-use and upload them locally; see en:Wikipedia:Non-free content. However, for legal reasons, Commons does not allow fair-use material. --Túrelio (talk) 06:43, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi Túrelio,

Ok. Aber es ist besser Kat. nicht anzulegen bevor Dateien vorhanden sind. "Kategorie leer" ist ein Schnelllöschgrund. --Túrelio (talk) 18:13, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi @Wilhelm Zimmerling PAR,
I am the one who emptied Category:Schmetterlingsflieder (Buddleja davidii) in Ruhland into Category:Argynnis paphia in Brandenburg and nominated it for speedy deletion. At that time, I had not noticed that you created a whole "Category:Nature of Ruhland by genus or species" structure. And, sorry to say this, but this structure is quite bad.
First, category names should be in English and they should not include any vernacular names. Second, and most importantly, your categories don’t fit in the existing categorization logic. Cross-categorization as “species in city” is rarely used on Commons, since it is pointless to have categories with very few pictures and it makes any maintenance difficult. Things should stay simple and consistent.
A lot of categories you created within Category:Ruhland have similar problems of language and organization. I would strongly suggest that you read Commons:Categories and try to get much more familiar with existing analogous category structures before trying to create tens of new such categories. Thanks!--LamBoet (talk) 18:55, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
(nach BK) Danke, Turelio. Ich habe gerade LamBoets Beitrag gesehen, sorry.

Hallo LamBoet, the names of the (or "my") bottom Categories here are in german. Better were for local categories the next level in german, too, in some cases, but its a strong rule. And because of this, if I want to hold a german categoy name, I couldn't have a sub-category there. By the way, I think, we must not discuss this here.

Full view of an artwork record in Rhizome’s Wikibase Catalog.gif[edit]

Hello Túrelio, I have noticed that you have just deleted Full view of an artwork record in Rhizome’s Wikibase Catalog.gif referring to COM:SS. This image is uploaded by an employee from the cultural organization in preparation for an upcoming blog post for the Wikimedia blog, which I'm writing together with them, about Rhizome's use of Wikibase. I have explained the copyright issues around screenshots to the Rhizome staff, and they themselves have spent quite a bit of time to adjust the screenshot so that they would have the right to upload it to Commons. Did we miss something in that process?

  • The screenshot is deliberately made on a free software operating system (a Linux distro, I can check which one exactly), in a FLOSS browser (Firefox, Mozilla Public License 2.0)
  • It shows the Wikibase software (GPL 2.0)
  • The system font has been deliberately changed to OpenSans (Apache License 2.0)
  • The information and logo in the screenshot is from the internal database of Rhizome, and uploaded by employee Lyndsey Moulds.

Please let me know which elements are still not OK, and I will get back to them and ask them to improve that. Thank you! Warmly, SandraF (WMF) (talk) 08:23, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Sandra,
the image had been copyvio-tagged by another colleague[33], which seemed plausible to me. Anyway, now I've restored the image. I would recommend you to enter your above information into the image description. Also, if this Lyndseyjm has a sort of blanket permission from Rhizome for all these uploads, it might be better to forward this permission to OTRS (,so that a ticket can be issued and put on all her uploads. --Túrelio (talk) 09:14, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

File:Dietrich von Choltitz liberation of Paris.jpg[edit]

Please put back the file you deleted, the licensing stated that it was taken by an employee of the U.S. government and thus is in the public domain. This is an image of the signing of the liberation of Paris in 1944, a historically important photograph and quite relevant to the pages it was on in Wikipedia. I have no idea why it was removed, as I deleted a quick removal request not only once but twice, and once that template is taken off it shouldn't be replaced but the process moved to the next step if the editor who wants it deleted wished to continue. See the page history. So at a minimum it should be taken to a deletion board somewhere. Thanks, and please ping me on Wikipedia as I very seldom come by Commons. Randy Kryn (talk) 10:27, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Randy, I've restored the image due to the ongoing regular DR. However, while it's not totally unlikely that the had been shot by the US military, there is no evidence for it. Even the uploader wrote "author=unknown" and sourced it to a German website. The claim "taken by an employee of the U.S. government .." is just the content of the default license-template based on an assumption, nothing more. --Túrelio (talk) 14:31, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

criteria for speedy deletion[edit]


I'm no expert on Copyright law, but Wilhelm Sauter died on 27 June 1948, which means that he has been dead for 70 years, 60 days, so when the tag says 70 or more, I would think that it is correct. Is it not? Regards, Skjoldbro (talk) 15:30, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

You are correct in your calculation. But per law it gets PD when the 70th year has finished, i.e. on January 1st of the following year. I've put your 3 uploads into the category:Undelete in 2019. They will be restored without requirement for further action. --Túrelio (talk) 15:59, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Just to let you know, negotiating with Trump is like dealing with a mafia boss. He is always threatening us Canadians. Some of his threats are just smoke and mirrors but they must be taken seriously since he is the US President. Trump's words cannot be trusted....and he will offer Canada a deal that "we cannot refuse" or else he might put 25% tariffs on the cars we produce here in Canada that we export to the US.

PHB at the office[edit]


I sam that you have deleted the photo PHB at the office.png from Wikimedia Commons. Understandable, since it was flagged for copyright violations. However, as a representative for the copyright holder Investment AB Spiltan I have earlier today sent a permission to COM:OTRS (see discussion on making that plus one additional photo available for Wikimedia.

I was hoping that the picture could stay online. Is there anyway we can put it back online? Or should I just simply upload it again (in a higher resolution as suggested by Patrick Rogel)? --Spiltan (talk) 13:31, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

I've temp-restored the image and tagged it with OTRS-pending. An OTRS-volunteer needs to check the permission and will then add a definitive ticket to the image.

File:St Lawrence Church Ludlow Thomas marker.jpg[edit]

Hello Túrelio, this is Didymus Ridgeland.

I understand that you removed the St_Lawrence_Church_Ludlow_Thomas_marker.jpg at 07:18 this morning believing it was a Copyright violation.

The image itself was taken by me on my phone when I was in Ludlow visiting St Lawrence. Thomas is my 11th great granddad, which is why I have been building up his page, since there wasn't much despite the many amazing things that he did and events that he took part in.

As I've said the photography is my own work, the marker itself is accessible to the public, since admission to St Lawrence is free and the marker was created for public display.

Having the image (as does the website King James Bible Translators is helpful for members of the public or indeed family doing research into ancestry for locating where Thomas had been. It may even help to bring visitors to St Lawrence like the image off the King James Bible Translators website inspired me to visit where my 11th great granddad was born.

If under these conditions the Copyright violation is nullified can you please restore the image?

If the image requires specific permission from St Lawrence Church then I can contact them and explain what I wish to use the image for. These are their contact details:

Parishes' Office No. 2 College Street Ludlow Shropshire SY8 1AN Tel. 01584 872073 website e-mail

Hi @Didymus Ridgeland:,
there was no doubt that you have taken the shot by yourself. However, the pictured board or marker contains a lot of text, which might be considered copyrightable. Regrettably, in the UK there is no freedom-of-panorama exception for 2-dimensional "graphic works" in the public. The old headshot shouldn't be a problem due to its likely age. All I can offer you is to restore the file and immediately put it into a regular (as opposed to speedy) deletion-request, which has the advantage that it allows for discussion and might eventually lead to a different result. --Túrelio (talk) 10:41, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
So, here you are: Commons:Deletion requests/File:St Lawrence Church Ludlow Thomas marker.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 20:05, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Túrelio I have contacted St Lawrence's but since they are out of office until Wednesday I will not know whether or not I have permission until then.

Kind regards,

Didymus Ridgeland

Please do not delete such categories as "Solar/Lunar eclipse of 20XX Month XX in Moscow", for future. --Brateevsky {talk} 16:31, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Because it had been tagged by another user for speedy-deletion, likely because it was empty. Do you have file to put in it? --Túrelio (talk) 16:33, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
It wasn't empty. It contaied two files — File:Солнечное затмение 11 августа 2018 года в Москве (парк Артёма Боровика).jpg and File:Солнечное затмение 11 августа 2018 года в Москве (парк Артёма Боровика) (cropped).jpg. User:B dash made it empty, I think: diff. Anyway, this user harms to me and to solar/lunar eclipses topic by his (strange) edits. In this situation he broke category tree. And made another category, Category:Solar eclipse of 2018 August 11 in Russia, useless. Can you undelete the category? --Brateevsky {talk} 16:43, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Frage zu gelöschter category[edit]

Hallo Túrelio, Du hast am 7. August die Category:Wilhelmsplatz, Platz (Göttingen) gelöscht. Grundsätzlich sehe ich das ein, zumal es ja auch die Category:Wilhelmsplatz (Göttingen) gibt und das sehr doppelt aussieht. Ich habe das leider nicht bei den Categories for discussion gefunden. Ein Problem habe ich nämlich damit: Der Wilhelmsplatz in Göttingen ist ein Platz, der auch als Straßenname fungiert. Und die anliegenden Baudenkmale sind natürlich entsprechend kategorisiert. Nun ist aber beim Wilhelmsplatz auch die Platzfläche selbst ein Baudenkmal bzw. konstituierender Bestandteil des Baukulturensembles Innenstadt Göttingen, ebenso wie übrigens die Platzflächen von Joghanniskirchhof, Markt und Jakobi-, Albani- Nikolai- Paulinerkirchhof (letztere ohne die angrenzenden Straßen). In der entsprechenden Denkmalliste der Wikipedia führt der Link "weitere Bilder" jetzt ins Leere. Soll man den umbiegen auf die Oberkategorie, in die Du anscheinend die Datei verschoben hast? Das ginge, aber die Einordnung der Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Wilhelmplatz (Göttingen) ist unvollständig, wenn die Platzfläche fehlt, und wenn man die Oberkategorie da reinpackt, dann enthält sie sich selbst. Wie solte man das am besten handhaben? --Dehio (talk) 17:21, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Dehio, ehrlich gesagt habe ich hier nur einen bestellten und mir plausibel erscheinenden Löschantrag ausgeführt; das war also nicht etwa Endergebnis einer eigenen Überlegung. Wenn ich selbst vor so einem Kategoris.problem stehe, schaue ich meist erst einmal wie das in ähnlichen Fällen gehandhabt worden ist und orientiere mich daran. Das würde ich dir auch empfehlen. Wenn du am Ende zum Schluß kommst, dass der jetzt gelöschte der beste war, dann stelle ich die Kat. gerne wieder her. --Túrelio (talk) 19:19, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Das leuchtet mir sofort ein, und leider habe ich verpasst, damals zu intervenieren. Aber ich habe auch nicht ausreichend Zeit, da wirklich passende Parallelen zu suchen, zumal ich befürchte, dass es nur wenige gibt. In Göttingen waren die Plätze alle entsprechend angelegt, und einige davon wurden gelöscht, andere nicht. Wenn ich Zeit habe, frage ich vielleicht mal User:NiSaTi, der nach meiner Vermutung wahrscheinlich den Löschantrag gestellt hat. Ich möchte nichts widerherstellen lassen, was dann gleich wieder einen Löschantrag kassiert. Und es kann ja auch andere bessere Lösungen geben, auf die ich nur nicht komme. Vielen Dank erst mal! --Dehio (talk) 19:49, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Why do you delete my pictures!!![edit]

I have full right to publish all the pictures. Put them back and ask before you do things like this!

Túrelio, please have a look at File:John Lundgren.png, which is a new upload by the upset (unsigned) contributor above. Riggwelter (talk) 17:25, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
@Riggwelter, yes, the png is just a smaller version of the same image as File:John Lundgren.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 19:41, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Please restore all the pictures you removed!!! --Ilvma (talk) 17:32, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

@Ilvma, Mätt din ton.
1) You had been prenotified on your talkpage User talk:Ilvma.
2) In your Swedish reply on your talkpage you claimed: All images I post here are allowed to post. I am personal friend of John Lundger ...
This statement suggests that you did not shoot these photos by yourself. Otherwise you wouldn't need his permission. But in the description of all your uploads you claimed them to be your own work. This does not fit together.
Per your last posting to your talkpage it's clear that you are not the author, as you mention a photographer as a separate person.
3) Now, let's assume you were given all these images by Mr. John Lundgren and were asked to upload them to Commons. In this case, Mr. Lundgren needs to send a declaration (template at Commons:E-postmallar) to (or in which he confirms that he is in possession of the full copyright over all uploaded images (each filename needs to be mentioned) and that he agrees to release them under the choosen free license (cc-by-sa-4.0). Only then the images can be restored. --Túrelio (talk) 19:41, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I can't do this now, as both images are without license (your did not state any free license) and without evidence of a permission.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by DamianoL (talk • contribs) 09:26, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
That's nonsense. I have no access to permissions, only OTRS-volunteers have, I cannot remove something to which I have no access. In addition: on Commons it's the job of the uploader to provide convincing evidence that his/her uplaods are o.k., not the other way round. EOD. --Túrelio (talk) 09:30, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
"(...) and you removed them" - sorry, I mean: I have sent permission and you deleted the photos... You deleted the photos, before I could write to permissions-pl...and now AGAIN I have to contact them, not you... OK, I sent second info to permissions-pl and i'm waiting for a response...

Image deleted - Michel Franck wikipedia page[edit]

Hi Túrelio,

I was wondering whether you could help regarding the image of Michel Franck you deleted recently on Commons? I work at the Theatre des Champs-Elysées, and we own the rights for this image and would like to use it on Michel Franck's page. Have I not registered it correctly? I would highly appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance, 08:14, 5 September 2018 (UTC) Fiorilla

Hi Fiorilla,
as you are not logged-in (username?) and did not provide the filename of the deleted image, I have no idea about which image you are talking about (I make some hundreths deletion per day). --Túrelio (talk) 08:22, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi Turelio,

Sorry, didn't notice I wasn't logged in. Fiorilla is my username. And the name of the deleted image was File:Michel_Franck,_par_Harcourt.jpg

Thanks again for your help! Fiorilla

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Fiorilla (talk • contribs) 14:37, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi Fiorilla,
ok. You sourced and credited the image to "Harcourt Paris". Is that identical to the theatre you mentioned above or another entity? Who is the photographer?

In such cases, where the uploader is not the photographer, a credible permission from the author or rightsholder needs to be send to ; see Commons:Email templates for permission-template. So, if you (or your theatre) is not the photographer, but has obtained rights from the photographer, you need to check whether these rights include the right to release the image under a free license, which allows everybody to use (including commercial use) this image for free, provided the license-terms are met. A licensing "only for Wikipedia" is not allowed per our policy, see COM:L. --Túrelio (talk) 06:50, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio, Thank you. I have just sent the authorization from Harcourt to, hope the picture will be restored soon! Thanks for your help. 08:53, 12 September 2018 (UTC) Fiorilla

File:Sunhild Kleingaertner.jpg[edit]

Dear Túrelio,

two days ago you deleted the picture File:Sunhild Kleingaertner.jpg , uploaded by my client with the account "Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte" because of a copywright violation. Thank you for taking care, but in this case the accusation is wrong. My client is the owner of the picture and he uploaded it for free use. The website you found and linked as original source is the website of my client, who's also the owner of the picture you deleted: The DSM Museum is the Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte like its mentioned in the subheadline.

Hallo 35c63n,
ich antworte mal auf deutsch, weil :de ja dein "Heimatprojekt" ist. Das Problem mit Nutzerkonten wie "Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte" ist, dass jeder beliebige so ein Konto eröffnen kann. Deshalb gibt es für institutionelle Nutzer seit einiger Zeit die Möglichkeit, das Nutzerkonto verifizieren zu lassen, wie es hier: de:Wikipedia:Benutzerverifizierung beschrieben ist. Falls du bzw. das "Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte" weitere Uploads planen, würde ich das unbedingt empfehlen. Falls nicht bzw. um das o.g. Portrait wiederherstellen zu lassen, sollte das Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte von seiner offiziellen Emailadresse an eine Mail schicken, in der bestätigt wird, dass das Institut entweder selbst der Urheber oder der Rechteinhaber an dem Portrait ist und zustimmt, dass es unter der gewählten freien Lizenz auf Commons verbreitet wird. (Falls der Urheber ein unabhängiger Fotograf ist, ist es Sache des Instituts im Innenverhältnis zu klären, ob er dafür seine Genehmigung gegeben hat). Wenn diese Mail abgeschickt ist, kannst du mir kurz eine Nachricht geben. --Túrelio (talk) 09:10, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio,

herzlichen Dank für deine schnelle Rückmeldung. Ich bin auf der Talk Seite auf solch einen Hinweis gestoßen und an meinen Kunden weitergegeben. Das Konto wurde inzwischen, wie aufgefordert, durch ein formloses Schreiben über eine offizielle E-Mail Adresse des Instituts verifiziert. Ich habe auch schon im Auftrag des Instituts eine Undeletion Request gestellt und die Sachlage aufgeklärt. Falls das Portrait infolgedessen nicht wieder hergestellt wird, gebe die Anleitung an den Auftraggeber und Rechteinhaber weiter. Ich danke für die Hilfe. Schöne Grüße!

Hallo Túrelio,

falls du mein Edit zur letzten Nachricht nicht gesehen hast: Erstmal einmal vielen Dank für deine schnelle Rückmeldung. Ich hatte solch eine Info auch auf der User Page der Kundin gesehen und daraufhin schon drum gebeten, das Konto verifizieren zu lassen. Das ist auch direkt passiert. Ich weiß nicht wie lange die Bearbeitung nun dauern wird und ob das Portrait nun durch den von mir gestellten Undeletion Antrag wieder eingestellt wird; falls ich oder die Kundin als Urheberin das Foto erneut hochladen müssen, freue ich mich über eine kleine Nachricht.

Dear Túrelio,

I noticed you recently deleted the image mentioned above. (original here:
I'm not sure what license I initially selected, but I do believe it qualifies as {{PD-textlogo}} (possibly {{trademarked}}).
Compared with, for example, File:Nielsen_logo.svg or File:Steinberg_logo.png, I think the same logic applies here.

Could you take a look ? If you agree, should I upload it again or file an undeletion request ?

thanks for your time — Kwakeroni (talk) 13:09, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Kwakeroni,
the logo-image was deleted because you had tagged it by yourself as non-free logo, which automatically leads to speedy-deletion. After viewing the deleted image, I agree that it might go per PD-textlogo. So, I've restored it. However, be prepared that it might be nominated for deletion by anybody else. --Túrelio (talk) 13:17, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Social Media Marketing.jpg Is a CC0 File[edit]

Hi Túrelio, I hope you are well. I noted you deleted my uploads below as you could find them on existing sites. All of these images have been taken from Pixabay and are in the public domain under the CC0 Creative Commons licence. THe images i have uploaded have social media icons edited into them so they look quite different to the Pixabay images they are based on. Hopefully they will add value to those writing social media based works. For example the social media marketing.jpg image can be found here

In any case i can understand if you did a quick google image search that they would appear so it looks like infringement. Can you confirm how i can ensure future files i have altered from Pixabay are not deleted and what actions i need to take to undelete my 6 files below (alos included links to all pixabay files below).

I appreciate you have a difficult job with endless tasks so hoping my images will not cause issues for you again.

Today Testing (talk) 12:48, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Today Testing,
if File:Social Media Marketing.jpg is an edited version of this Pixabay image, why did you claim it as completely own work? That's the reason why another tagged it as copyvio and why I consequently deleted it.
Anyway, IMO the easiest way to prevent these edited images getting suspected as copyvio, would be to 1) upload the original (unedited) image to Commons, and then as 2) step to upload your (edited) version, under an at least slightly different filename and clearly writing in the source-entry {{Derived from|original.jpg}}. If you could do this, then I could undelete your images.
However, another advise for caution: In the description of your uploads, you asked for a credit/link to This might be considered as spam and either removed (or the image itself getting deleted).

--Túrelio (talk) 14:54, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio Regarding your 1st question, I put it as own work after reading the below in 1st paragraph in the section. ‘In, either case, unless the underlying work is in the public domain (see Commons:Public domain) or there is evidence that the underlying work has been freely licensed for reuse (for example, under an appropriate Creative Commons license), the original creator of the work must explicitly authorize the copy/ derivative work before it can be uploaded to Commons.’ I interpreted this as allowing me to authorise my derivative work as my own as it was in the public domain and I have altered them considerably. Apologies if I misunderstood the rule there.

Regarding uploading the images, do you want me to upload all my edited versions again or just the originals – not sure because you mention undeleting the existing images in your message. Also where exactly do you input This file was derived from: Original.jpg
? Is this done by choosing ‘this file is not my own work’ and then putting code into ‘source’ or is it added to the description section?

Lastly, thanks for heads up on spam thing. Can you clarify though, the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license Wikimedia uses states under attribution –‘You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor’. Can I specify to attribute to me or my site given that rule? I understand that using the URL can be spammy but if I removed the url and just stated the name of the website would that be reasonable?

Thanks for your help,

ad 1) whether the author of a PD-released original is mentioned, is mainly a moral/ethical question. IMO, one should do it. As opposed to that, the source of your derivative absolutely needs to be mentioned.
ad 2) no, just the originals. Thereafter, I can undelete your currently deleted derivatives.
ad 3) Correct. But that has nothing to do with copyright or license; that's an application of our (Commons) policy Commons:Project scope.

Hi Túrelio Thanks for the update. I have now uploaded all the originals. Not sure if this below link works for you to view them? Kind regards, Al / Today Testing Today Testing (talk) 14:43, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Photo Yoann Bourgeois[edit]


I saw you removed today Yoann Bourgeois' portrait on his wikipedia page saying that we don't have permission to use it I would like to inform you that I modified his page and added this photo on behalf of Yoann as I am working with him and currently in charge of improving his wikipedia page Yoann knows personnally Geraldine and they work together very often; he has bought this photo himself exactly to be able to use it in this kind of situations. I will upload again the portrait and I would be thankful that you do not remove it again

Thank you for your understanding

All the best

you claimed to be the author of this photo. Now you confirm that you are not. Crediting the true author is an absolute basic in every country's copyright law. So, even if Bourgeois has obtained copyright/permission from Geraldine Aresteanu, she still needs to be mentioned as author. In addition, in such cases (uploader is not author) the uploader needs to provide a written permission from the author or the copyright-holder to . See Commons:Email templates (or Commons:Messages type in French) for the appropiate wording. --Túrelio (talk) 19:16, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

If I am right, we did say that the photo was taken by Geraldine, it was written right underneath the photo Also, when we uploaded the picture, wikipedia doesn't ask us if we own the photo but if we do have the right to use it (at least this is the french translation) which we totally have Anyway, it doesn't really matter to us, maybe we made a mistake in the process and if it is the case we apologise; what we ask is, how can we now upload again Yoann's portrait in the right way ? I tried this afternoon and didn't find an answer to it... thank you for your help

All the best

The answer was already in my first response: 5th and 6th sentence. You actually cannot re-upload the same image again, as it was deleted for suspicion of copyvio. Also, it's not necessary, as it can easily be undeleted by me or any other admin. However, first you need to provide a permission as explained in my first answer. --Túrelio (talk) 06:45, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Undeletion request for US Air Force Academy photos[edit]

I'm writing regarding the following files that you deleted after speedy deletion requests:

While it is technically correct that they all had "copyright" licenses on Flickr, it turns out that those licenses are incorrect, an ironic reverse of "license laundering" cases where unscrupulous Flickr users upload others' copyrighted works under free-use CC licenses. AF_Academy is the official Flickr page of the US Air Force Academy, as indicated by the USAFA official Facebook page, so all of its photos are original works of the US Air Force and thus in the public domain. This is a clear case of a false positive, and I hope you reconsider. Arbor to SJ (talk) 16:07, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Arbor to SJ,
I was aware of the contradiction between license on Flickr and assumed status as Gov works. However, from other US gov accounts I know that they sometimes put such images under CC-BY-ND, which is formally also not accepted on Commons and where we ignored the restricted license. However, we also know that US gov entities sometimes present not-own images on their websites, as "courtesy image", which naturally do not fall under the US gov PD clause. So, when this Flickr account is indeed officially by the "AF Academy", they should know what they do. The "all rights reserved" could mean that these images are also "courtesy images" by other authors. IMO, the best would be if you would contact this Flickr account and ask them directly about the 5 images and send their reply to (OTRS). --Túrelio (talk) 20:06, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
Do you have any evidence other than conjecture ("could mean", "sometimes present not-own images") that these pictures are not official US government works? The Air Force Academy Flickr page puts VIRIN's on the names of all its photos (but lazily omits other descriptive info like captions and photographers, for reasons unknown). A VIRIN is "assigned to all DoD personnel who create Visual Information (VI) records", thus meaning that VIRIN's go strictly to works of the US Department of Defense. One of the deleted photos (of Wachenheim and Calhoun) has the VIRIN 160902-F-KB029-2017, the "F" in the second field standing for US Air Force. Arbor to SJ (talk) 03:41, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but that's not how it works here. It's the task of the uploader of not-own works to convince the community that the uploads are under a free license. If there were blatant copyvio-evidence, you would have got just 1 short sentence from me. Also, I don't understand why you did not take my hint and just contacted the Flickr-account to get clarity about the copyright. Anyway, as I am offline for the rest of the day (and eventually also tomorrow), I recommend you to take this case to COM:UDR, where other admins may view it. --Túrelio (talk) 07:08, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Alright then. I just wanted to approach you first before attempting UDR. Arbor to SJ (talk) 20:25, 20 September 2018 (UTC)


Im Thread "fragen wegen bewohner des kohle bergwerks..." wird der Klarname eines gewissen Herrn verwendet. Sollte man den vorsichtshalber ausblenden und mit revdel verstecken?

File talk:Boeing 717-200 Jetstar.jpg[edit]

Why did you not only revert my speedy deletion, but also protect the talk page? The content is a duplicate of the file page, with no additional information. -- 07:35, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

1) Because what you did, is edit-warring. You might even have been blocked. 2) No, it is not, I compared the content. Whether the information on the talkpage is relevant, is a different question, but it's not a duplicate. --Túrelio (talk) 07:38, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
What does edit-warring mean? Why does irrelevant information have to be protected?-- 09:36, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
en:Wikipedia:Edit warring. I didn't say it's irrelevant. Do you really have nothing better to do than to edit the talk page? Why such interest in this page? --Túrelio (talk) 10:19, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

Deletet File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg][edit]

This image had 2 Public Domain references (one of them is Wikipedia!!!) containing the very same information buried in much text of the Free e-book by Google that Wiki is citing Corpus Reformatorum (details below), yet my original illustration with proper embedded and explicit references through Wikipedia itself (and presently on Wikipedia) was deleted evidently maliciously, diversely, and plurally, due to the fact that subsequently also in the article the "editors" deleted all references to Polish Sarmatian Astronomer Nicolas Copernicus which is a fact of history through a number of other references, which the "editors" also deliberately deleted (about half of the references of books published in the last 500 years on Copernicus)!

The File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg that I have created, in fact specifically is cited in the Public Domain through Google e-books, and on Wikipedia, as and at Corpus Reformatorum: The Corpus Reformatorum online CR 4 - 1837

Corpus reformatorum, Volume 4 C.A. Schwetschke, 1837

You need to scroll down to the cited page 679!

Which was stated in the deleted File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg ... “Page 679 of vol. IV of Corpus Reformatorum, containing a letter (of Oct. 16, 1541) from Philip Melanchton to a Mr. Burcard Mithobius, with first historic reference to "that Sarmatian astronomer who is trying to stop the sun and move the earth." ...
