Copyvio and socking[edit]

Can you redelete the file File:Sultanate-e-Khudadad of Mysore under Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan.jpg, which is a reupload of File:Flag of the Sultanat-e-Khudadad of Mysore.jpg that you had deleted earlier and is copied from this video-gaming forum. Also the uploader is a checkuser-confirmed sock of User:Mughal Lohar, a prolific sockpuppeteer on en-wiki, whose accounts often load copyrighted files and files with false source information/description here on commons (eg, User_talk:Binggo666). Can you block the account? Btw, is there a better way to coordinate the blocks of such accounts between English wikipedia and Commons? Thanks. Abecedare (talk) 16:50, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Now at Tigrpreservrs777 (talk · contribs). Has re-uploaded a file that was previously uploaded by Cheater9990, and again with false info (I found the source on Google images, but not linking since my browser reports malware). Two socks on en-wiki (since reverted and blocked) were adding the image to numerous articles. Pinging @Tiptoety:, who had last run CU on en-wiki, and may desire to do so on commons too.

    • (talk page stalker) I'd alerted Tiptoety to this on However, a lot of this which is problematic content on is not necessarily so out here as the issue of OR is very different out here. Denniss was the one who blocked Mughal Lohar and some of the other socks when I was doing the blocking of this set on, but it was all a very long time ago as I'm not sure we've kept track of the commons socks over the past two years like we have on —SpacemanSpiff 03:59, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks all.
Have tagged another upload for deletion. Note that it is again a copyvio wrongly claimed as "own work", and has false/unsupported description of the object being depicted. Both these are characteristic of files uploaded by the user's socks (sometimes the files he uploads are in fact public domain under {{PD-art}}, yet he still adds false sourcing and description. Weird.). Abecedare (talk) 19:36, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Villa Mariani - foto effaces[edit]

Bonjour je t'écris car je voudrais comprendre quels sont les problèmes de Copyright relatifs aux photos de Villa Mariani à Bordighera que tu as effacées. Je connais la personne qui a mis les photos sur Wiki Commons et c'est le propriétaire des droits d'auteurs des photos. Il a probablement du faire une fausse maneouvre. Peux-tu me dire laquelle de façon à ce qu'il puisse les charger sans avoir de problèmes. Merci d'avance --Bettylella (talk) 06:46, 16 August 2015 (UTC)--Bettylella (talk) 06:46, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Bonjour, désolée pour avoir repondu si tard. Il s'agissait des photos mises sur la page "Villa Mariani" (si je ne me trompes pas c'est bien toi qui a effacé par exemple le file File:Villa_pittore_Mariani_a_Bordighera.jpg ). Si je me trompes, comment puis-je récupérer les photos? Merci d'avance pour ta disponibilité.--Bettylella (talk) 08:15, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

@Bettylella: Bonjour,
Ces photos récentes ont été importées par Ghiro77, n'ont pas de licence, et sont sourcées avec "Archivio Fondazione Pompeo Mariani". Il faudrait envoyer une autorisation via COM:OTRS/fr. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 10:27, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Merci pour ton aide, je vais trasmettre l'information à la Fondazione Pompeo Mariani. J'espére que l'on pourra ainsi charger les photos.

Question on image removal[edit]

Hi there,

Just curious as to why the file "File:Rick Bergman.jpg" was removed. The file has no copyright and is okay to use for the purposes of Wikipedia. Not sure what else I need to provide in order to get this image back on Rick Bergman's wikipedia page.

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Andrew.krepow (talk • contribs)

File:Плоский мост на плане города 1941.jpg File:Элемент плана Красногвардейска 1939 года на экране монитора.JPG[edit]

Вопрос: где вы здесь видите "нарушение авторских прав"? Кто их у меня отобрал? Я - автор этих изображений. Это мои собственные работы. Прочитайте описание снимка File:Элемент плана Красногвардейска 1939 года на экране монитора.JPG.:

Question: where you see "copyright infringement" here? Who took away them from me? I am an author of these images. These are my own works. Read the description of a picture

Русский: Элемент плана города Красногвардейск (состояние местности 1939 года) в программе AutoCAD 2005 на экране монитора моего компьютера. Снимок предоставлен по следующему вопросу. Некоторые не могут себе представить, что человек, занимающийся разработкой топографических документов и сам выполняющий сверку на местности, а также, последующую распечатку, может выставить своё произведение в качестве иллюстрации для статьи "Википедии". Вот и предоставляю доказательство того, что и среди топографов есть люди, интересующиеся историей родных мест.

English: City map element Krasnogvardeysk (a condition of the district of 1939) in the AutoCAD 2005 program on the screen of the monitor of my computer. The picture is provided on the following question. Some can't imagine that the person who is engaged in development of topographical documents and carrying out verification on the district, and also, the subsequent listing, can expose the work by way of illustration for the article "Wikipedias". Here also I provide the proof of that, as among topographers there are people who are interested in history of native places.

Неужели не понятно, что там написано? Или вы действительно не можете поверить, что топограф может выставить свою работу бесплатно в качестве иллюстрации? Или уже есть кто-то, заявивший, что это он - автор этих изображений? Назовите этого самозванца. Пусть попытается доказать своё авторство. Я привёл доказательство - снимок с монитора моего компьютера. Никто больше не может показать это изображение в программе AutoCAD 2005.

Что вы ответите? Жду.

Really it isn't clear, what there it is written? Or you can't really believe, what the topographer can expose the work free of charge by way of illustration? Or already there is someone, declared, what it he is an author of these images? Call this impostor. Let will try to prove the authorship. I provided the proof - a picture from the monitor of my computer. Anybody can't show this image in the AutoCAD 2005 program any more. What will you answer? I wait.

Fontaine de Poblet[edit]

Bonjour Yann, Pourquoi avoir supprimer la "Fontaine de Poblet" que j'avais mis sur wikimedia pour mon article sur les monastères? Cette fontaine se trouve sur wikimedia depuis le 4 juin 2005. Son auteur , sa source (Flickr) me paraissent parfaitement identifiés et approuvés depuis cette date. Ayant trouvé la photo un peu foncée, je l'avais éclaircie et travaillé un peu les "rouge" et renforcé le contraste. Avais-je oublié quelque chose lorsque je l'ai remis sur wikimedia, c'est possible ? Il es est de même pour la photo du Wimborne Minster que j'avais également prise sur wikimedia et qui s'y trouvait depuis le 23 novembre 2009 avec toutes les autorisations voulues, me semble-t-il. J'avais également, pour mon article, travaillé un peu les couleurs de la photo, enlevé les poubelles et redressé la tour, le minster. Si la suppression de la fontaine, ne me gène pas beaucoup car je prendrai la photo initiale, pour le minster de Wimborne, cela me gène un peu plus car la photo initiale, si elle correspond parfaitement au besoin de cette partie du paragraphe sur la couverture des monastères, avec sa couverture en plomb, ne me plaît pas, raison pour laquelle je l'avais rectifiée. Mais bof je trouverai une autre photo, je suis habitué à ce genre de petit désagrément, qui souvent est de ma faute, mais il m'arrive parfois de ne pas savoir comment faire, surtout avec les photos en provenance de Flickr. Je pense qu'au départ du refus, le robot de wikimedia manque un peu de programmation compréhensible.

Hi Yann. This File includes a full adress of a Farmhouse. It is not verifiable if the uploader is the owner. I guess this is a possible violation of privacy, especially in german terms. Maybe it can be renamed to A House in Sippersfeld 2014. Tanks & Best Regards. --Gary Dee (talk) 11:20, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Actually we have many files such as this one. I am not sure, it is necessary, but you can ask a renaming. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:29, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

@Subha238: Hi,

Yes, it is sent to COM:OTRS only. Please consider restoring them.


Hi Yann. Is it necessary to have those following 2 Files. I mean, check the Metadata, they are (to me) exactly identical. The only difference(s) are the Instant ID respectively the Docu ID (wich is „normal” because of the Timestamp difference (Algorithm)). All the rest is exactly the same, so wouldnt it be worth considering to delete one, as reason for duplicate(s) ? Unnecessary Server Resources being used. Ok this may seem small in one case, but imagine about a few hundred of these kinds.

and File 4

Thank you & Best Regards. Gary Dee (talk) 19:23, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Server ressources is really not an issue here, but yes, unnecessary duplicate, so deleted. Yann (talk) 20:59, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Au sujet des images[edit]

Bonsoir Yann, En effet j'ai téléchargé des images qui ont été prises sur Internet car je ne sais pas comment publier une photo sur Wikimedia Commons. Ainsi je ne recommencerai probablement plus ces téléchargements, je n'ai aucunement envie que mon compte soit bloqué. En espérant d'avoir été assez clair Bien cordialement, Combres Rayan (talk) 22:00, 28 August 2015 (UTC)


Yann, can you check the change I made to the author/license and see if it's correct? It was uploaded as own work, which obviously it wasn't. Thanks. —SpacemanSpiff 07:56, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Yes, it looks plausible, at least. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:06, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for deleting categories[edit]

Hello Yann

I would like to thank you for deleting the many categories, I have tagged the last days. As you may noticed, an IP user created lots of categories for individual German locomotives and multiple units during July, most of them with just one or two pictures each, resulting in cases with 10 subcategories for 13 pictures for instance. I am trying to clean up the mess by moving the pictures back, but it takes time. And yes, it leaves a lot of empty categories. So I am very grateful, that you will spend time on deleting them. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 21:18, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, You are welcome! Yann (talk) 21:29, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Photographs by Dianna Bonner[edit]

Please do not simply revert without adressig the copyright issue. This has to be valued higher than the ban enforced on Russavia. --Denniss (talk) 14:00, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I am reverting this user on sight, specially when he creates DRs. I don't mind if you recreate the DRs on your name. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:04, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Is there nothing better to do than to race after Russavia? We are oblieged to pay attention to copyright issues even if they were brought up by a banned user. COM:PRP is one of them. --Denniss (talk) 15:04, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
I don't "race after", I am cleaning the mess cause by a banned user, that's quite a difference. At least one of the DR is nonsense, and I have better things to do that to check which DRs are valid, and which are not. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:17, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Every single DR has to be examined and a decision has to be made upon facts provided, that's our job. --Denniss (talk) 18:46, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Fine, then reopen the DRs yourself, not by reverting me. Regards, Yann (talk) 19:03, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
