Hi Takeaway,

I've used Chrome at times over the years but at this time I don't want to use it.

We don't know each other as editors. We have had little or no interactions that I'm aware of outside your posts on my talk page.

I truly appreciate good advice, and I'm certain I could learn from you as you clearly know a lot. I'm aware that I have many deficiencies and want to improve. But in all good heart, I wish that you would stay off my talk page. There's something about the way you show up there that brings me down for the rest of the day or longer. That is the reason for my request. Kalbbes (talk) 23:17, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

@Kalbbes: I shall in future, when I encounter more categories that you have created but don't make sense, not ask you why you created them. - Takeaway (talk) 07:42, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

"Bandaraban" images by Ferdous[edit]

Thank you for sorting those better... I was basically just slotting them somewhere 'in the right general direction' as an improvement on something like 'places' or 'food'. Reventtalk 04:17, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

You're welcome, User:Revent! - Takeaway (talk) 07:50, 18 August 2016 (UTC)


hi, you have nominated many of images I've uploaded for deletion because as you have said that they are kind of "Art" of unidentified significance. I'm a new user here so I don't understand what that sentence means, can you please tell me what kind of ART images I'm allowed to upload? thank you so much for understanding. --Super ninja2 (talk) 22:31, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi too Super ninja2. Please read COM:NOTUSED which states in the section Examples: "Artwork without obvious educational use, including non-educational artwork uploaded to showcase the artist's skills". If the artwork had been made by a well-known artist, it would be a different matter because then the artwork could be used to, for example, illustrate an article about that artist. - Takeaway (talk) 23:19, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
thank you so much ^_^ I appreciate it--Super ninja2 (talk) 00:22, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

hi Takeaway. What you mean "well-known artist" could explain this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Paweł Marcinek (talk • contribs) 08:16, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

@Paweł Marcinek:. For this, please read - Takeaway (talk) 12:00, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Salad ingredients[edit]

Hi. As you like food items, I want to tell you that maybe you have not seen the category I opened on "salad ingredients". I am sure you know of many items to put in there. On the other hand, in your photo album you refer to "both bridges on the Bosphorus". Since lately there are three of them maybe you might like to use "two of the three bridges" at the legend. Thanks. --E4024 (talk) 13:56, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

photos on Lomami National Park page[edit]

Hi, I noticed you nominated to delete the pictures I uploaded, because i made a mistake. I changed the license category. Could you remove your request please? I don't know how to do it. Thank you. Best, Cintia Garai Cintia Garai (talk) 12:50, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

@Cintia Garai:. Hi too Cintia, the problem with the license is not solved by changing the license in Wikimedia from CC-BY-4.0 to CC-BY-2.0. The problem lies with another part of the license of the original Flickr uploads (see this image for instance), which prohibits the commercial use of the images. This last bit is incompatible with available licences on Wikimedia Commons. As long as this isn't solved in Flickr, the deletion request must stay. Kind regards, - Takeaway (talk) 21:42, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
PS If you want to contest the deletion request, please do so on the nomination page itself as outlined in the instructions in the notifications of the deletion requests on your talk page. - Takeaway (talk) 22:13, 26 October 2016 (UTC)


Hi Takeaway, you categorized the Eisbein to austrian pork dishes. But its only a german meal. In Austria there are the Category:Schweinsstelze as the most similar dish. --ragrds from Austria --K@rl (talk) 18:04, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

@Karl Gruber: There were a whole bunch of photos of food in Austria in the "Eisbein" category. Should they be in there or have they been moved to another category in the meantime? - Takeaway (talk) 22:41, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
This is correkt, if the photo is from Austria so it should be moved. But thanks of the review, I will correct there. --regards K@rl (talk) 07:40, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Pointing left[edit]

I noticed that you reverted my removal of the "Pointing left" category from File:2010 0517 Soi Ngam Duphli 04.JPG, but without an edit summary. Why? No one is pointing left in the image; there is only someone pointing right, and the "Pointing right" category is already used on the image. Any clarification you might provide would be greatly appreciated. Neelix (talk) 01:18, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Please look at the photo carefully, and read the file description. PS I did leave an edit summary: "read".- Takeaway (talk) 01:29, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Images can be found widely on the Internet?[edit]

Could you show me the links where you found my files on internet? Prettyboy361 (talk) 12:13, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

@Prettyboy361: I found many instances of each of your uploads on the Internet through Google Image Search. Is there any way that you can prove that the images are yours? Please read COM:OTRS for more information. - Takeaway (talk) 12:24, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Fenugriek-spice.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Oleg Stukalov artworks[edit]

Hi Takeaway, the author of the artworks that have been requested for deletion is my father Stukalov Oleg Konstantinovich. He is not familiar with Internet but he asked me to create his page on Wikipedia and gave me the images and books for scan. How can he give a permission for the images? Thank you in advance for your answer. Best regards, Aliole — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aliole (talk • contribs) 18:29, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

@Aliole:, please follow the appropriate procedure mentioned in COM:OTRS. Thank you. - Takeaway (talk) 18:38, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Removal of posts on Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems page[edit]

Hello takeaway You have selectively removed a number posts without any explanation. I assume that is because you are an admin and we have posted things on the wrong page. Please explain what process I need to follow to a) sort out the edit war and b) get a response from user Srittau? Thank you, Charles (talk) 18:43, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

I am not an admin. I only undid your edit, which I could only assume was a mistake, because you had, with your edit, removed many of the recent threads by posting old threads that had been already taken care of, over them. And I did provide an edit summary. - Takeaway (talk) 19:47, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Need you[edit]

Hi Takeaway,

I'm Nadia, I'm a advertising producer, and I'd like to ask you something, but privately please... Could you please send me an email at my personal address :

Thanks & Warm regards*


@Nadia J:. Sorry, but I prefer keeping my interactions on Wikimedia/Wikipedia public. I have a huge dislike of private dealings when it concerns Wikimedia/Wikipedia. I might reconsider and make an exception if you can at least give me some info on what you want to talk to me about. If it has to do with adding promotional content to Wikimedia, there are ways of doing that while still in accord with Wikimedia rules and regulations. You can ask for more info @ Commons:Village pump. - Takeaway (talk) 11:06, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Category:All media needing categories as of 2016[edit]

There are >200 files to be transferred to Category:Unidentified subjects in Iran. It's impossible to do it using Cat-a-lot. Do you know a way? Thanks--Frze > talk 09:23, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Frze. I have no idea either. Maybe someone over on Commons:Village pump might know? Good luck! - Takeaway (talk) 14:04, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletes, 2[edit]

As we talked about before(, for speedy, please provide the URL to the page you think contains one larger, or older - or for some other reason is why you think this is a copyright violation. If you're putting it up after having found the exact one, what is to say google search will yield same one to someone else, and why repeat the search? If you have no URL, or if you're not sure, please use deletion nomination instead. Thanks. Ellin Beltz (talk) 20:40, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi again Ellin Beltz. C&P-ing a url of a google image search result is kind of a hassle on a mobile phone (I often clear out categories during train commutes) but sure, I'll go back to providing url's in clear-cut copyright violation cases. The problem with many of these copyvio uploads here on Commons is that it doesn't really depend on just one easy to find original file somewhere on the internet but more on a certain image indeed circulating widely without it being possible to discover where it originated from. All I can link to is the simple google image search result (which is a huge url) showing that it is indeed a very common image that has been uploaded to Commons as "own work". You seem to be the only one demanding that though. All other admins so far seem to be okay with just the sentence that it appears widely on the internet. - Takeaway (talk) 08:43, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
I'm sorry pasting a url is hard for you on your mobile. It's never stopped me - although my phone is an old S3. This page shows how to use the "share" feature (hidden under the three dots at upper corner of your browser) to easily paste the addresses. It works like that for twitter and pasting to chat also. If that's not your platform or browswer, perhaps Google how to do it on your particular smartphone?
What each admin does and how we follow the speedy rules is to our own conscience and how much heat we're willing to take for a mistaken decision. I would prefer none and am careful. I do not believe I am the only admin who needs proof which shows (a) as you suggest that larger and older images are widely spread and/or (b) as I request the exact URL from which it was taken in order to speedy, (c) or some other obvious truth about why the image is a copyright violation (metadata, watermarks, what is said on source page, external links no permission, etc.). What I don't accept is "I found this on the internet" with no link and no evidence. I personally do not delete based on "oh ya I found it on the internet somewhere" without a link whether naked or buried - which sends the admin to duplicate your effort. "What other admins do" is on them in the same way that "Other Stuff Exists" is not a criteria for image deletion.
For me, speedy is that we have to be totally sure its swiped - otherwise it's a deletion nomination to give everyone time. A week or two extra in most cases is not the end of the world - and the cases which are obvious (i.e. Getty, AP, metadata marked, 10,000 google hits larger and older) are easy to take out. Point (a) above is obvious - but the images have to be Larger and/or Older than the upload in question... 10,000 hits on thumbnails does not show that our larger image was taken from their smaller image. In the absence of the image being widely distributed, and only one or a few copies showing results in the point of (b) above is to direct us to the actual image that you think causes the copyright violation. I have seen several to many cases where people have pointed fingers and claimed COM:COPYVIO!! and it turned out the webpage took the photo from Commons and then used it themselves. This is only one reason why I am careful. As before, I cannot speak for the actions of other admins - I only know that you were told this before and - as above - you agreed to do it. Please do google up how to paste a link on your mobile - the problem will solve itself. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 14:23, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
