Bash Bug Logos[edit]

The logos I uploaded were given to me directly by the creators, or taken from public locations. The Bashinga one was created by me. I have no issue with them begin deleted, I was simply trying to curate as many as possible that were generated from the event. Currently there is a logo on the page That is not one of the ones created during the event. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Edprevost (talk • contribs) 02:52, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

You reverted this without explaining, what I was asking was for Category:Ailsworth to be temporary deleted (see COM:GCSD#6 so that Category:Ailsworth, Cambridgeshire can be moved to Category:Ailsworth as I can't find any other uses, note on Wikipedia the move was reverted.

image de l'écrivain[edit]

Il s'agit d'une photo de l'éditeur de José Tolentino Mendonça des Editions Paulinas afin de promouvoir l'auteur. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Beatattitude (talk • contribs)

@Beatattitude: Bonjour,
1. Il manque la license. 2. Il manque une autorisation du photographe. Voyez COM:OTRS/fr pour la procédure. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 15:08, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Copyright accusation[edit]

I have no idea who you are, Yan , nor don't have any knowledge of who accuses me of copyright violations. Everything I uploaded was done with the full consent of the involved parties. That is all I have to say on this matter.

Parker Robinson. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 01:01, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

I have just seen that you have deleted the photo of Liz Hodgkinson on the grounds of Copyright violation, which you clearly do a lot of, given the section Copyright accusation message from Parker Robinson (

IT IS NOT A COPYRIGHT VIOLATION! The photo is owned by its subject, who gave me permission to use it! I completed the form at in reply to the email from Permissions - Wikimedia Commons <> What the hell do I have to do to stop this happening??

And please UNDELETE this photograph immediately so that it can be restored to the page Liz Hodgkinson! Iph (talk) 04:26, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Iph : Please calm down and stay polite.
The file File:Liz Hodgkinson.jpg will be restored when the permission is processed. As there is an important backlog, it can take some time. We are all volunteers here. Thanks, Yann (talk) 08:04, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Ultra Festival Photos[edit]

Hi there, photos that I used were recently flagged and deleted on a myriad of Wikipedia pages. I have received permission from the owners of these photos to use said photos throughout these Wikipedia pages. Not sure why they were deleted, I worked very hard on updating these pages and it's unfair to have them deleted. I can provide proof of permission if need be. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arnold.kevin729 (talk • contribs) 19:18, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

@Arnold.kevin729: Hi,
You didn't answer in the deletion request, and many of your pictures were copied from the Internet. If you are the copyright owner, could you please send a permission via COM:OTRS? Thanks, Yann (talk) 00:06, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
I was given less than a week to respond which is absurd, and I will send the email as suggested.--Arnold.kevin729 (talk) 15:58, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
@Arnold.kevin729: Hi, OK fine. The pictures can be restored once the permission is received. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:59, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Restoring images[edit]

Hi Yann, Can you please restore the following photos, as the permissions have been provided for them: File:Slovo Cirilovo1.jpg, File:Slovo Cirilovo2.jpg, File:Slovo Cirilovo3.jpg, File:Slovo Cirilovo4.jpg, File:Slovo Cirilovo5.jpg, File:Slovo Cirilovo6.jpg, File:Slovo Cirilovo7.jpg (ticket:2016112510014031).

Your closure[edit]

Can you please say how your closure is not in contradiction with the part of guideline saying: " A model, for example, may have consented to the image being taken for a personal portfolio, but not for publication on the Internet." Please don't say the pics are on flickr since long ago! --Mhhossein talk 12:34, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

When a professional photographer sets up in a bathroom, and the model knows this, the bathroom ceases to become a private place -- there is no expectation of privacy. And publication on Flickr is publication on the Internet, period. By long-standing U.S. law, further publication does not violate privacy. That section you mention is a possibility for privacy law in other countries, but not the U.S. Privacy laws vary greatly between countries, so not every possible aspect mentioned in the guideline will be true for all countries. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:27, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Carl Lindberg: So, you mean that per U.S. privacy law 'we can assume that a model is consent with her photo on the net'? --Mhhossein talk 10:56, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Mhhossein: For a professional model, generally, yes. They are expecting to be photographed in sessions, so wherever they are, it's not a private place, and no further consent is needed. If there is a prohibition on being published for such photos, that would be a contractual issue between the model and the photographer, not a privacy issue, and unless there is a complaint from one of the parties involved, we would assume that all contractual issues are OK. Most of the COM:PEOPLE guideline is about more normal upload situations -- photos taken of friends and family, or unknown people -- in those cases, the uploader is the photographer, and the publication here is the first publication. In that situation uploaders have a lot more to be aware of, and is where Commons may need to be more careful. A few countries have stronger rights attached to pictures of oneself, which can go well beyond pure privacy, which we may need to take into consideration. But the U.S. does not, and (strictly speaking) that is the only law we absolutely have to follow -- the rest is by policy or community decision, taking all aspects of the photo (and claims/requests by parties involved) into consideration. Professional modeling sessions are pretty far outside the normal scope of that guideline. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:17, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, but you're introducing new concepts inside the guideline. No, the models, be it professional or otherwise, are not determining criterion for privacy or publicity of the place. So, the rest of your comment seems meaningless. The privacy issue matter here for the cases we just discussed. Instead of basing your words on your own speculations which I respect, you'd better link to actual laws or guidelines, just how I did. But, as you were trying to discredit the guideline from the very beginning, you ignored those explicit notes from the guideline page. A photo on commons has spent two steps; 1) photography 2) uploading. The first step is resolved by issuing a free licence and the second step is an issue for photos taken in privacy. Sorry to say that the comment is not accountable to my eyes. --Mhhossein talk 17:52, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Expectation of privacy is the only criteria for if it's a private place. Carl Lindberg (talk) 20:02, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
And merely based on the quality of the photo and pose we can't say she did not have expectation of privacy and the place is hence considered private. Nothing remains!--Mhhossein talk 13:00, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
  • It's interesting that the closing admin has apparently nothing to say. --Mhhossein talk 13:00, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
    • Mhhossein, you are beginning to be annoying. I don't see what I can add to Carl's excellent explanation. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:42, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Two files[edit]

Revent, Jcb and I agree that we need a new look at:

File:Rezomb.jpg‎ has no source information at all, and while it looks old, looking old isn't enough to keep it on Commons. We also have a much better image of the monument at File:Thombrez.JPG.

File:Rf-4c-68-0568-zr.jpg does not offer any proof that the photographer was a Federal employee whose job it was to take photographs. The source description is wrong on its face because it says, "Image source listed as United States Army Air Forces via National Archives". The United States Army Air Forces went out of existence in 1947, while this is an image from 1968-1991. It could be an official US Air Force photo, a photo by the plane's pilot or crew chief, or a photo by someone else.

I propose, and Revent and Jcb agree, that I open a new DR for each of the two, with the DR comment written as above. If you agree, after I post the DRs, you and the three of us will not comment on the DRs and will let them run their course entirely in the hands of our colleagues. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:54, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Yes, please do. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:57, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
✓ Done, thanks for your quick response, see Commons:Deletion requests/File:Rf-4c-68-0568-zr.jpg and Commons:Deletion requests/File:Rezomb.jpg. You (Yann), Revent, Jcb and I all agree that we will not comment on the DRs. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:52, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Copyright violations[edit]


I'm new here in Wikipedia. I've uploaded some photos that, apparently, shouldn't have been uploaded, but that's because I was not familiar with your policies yet. However, I am familiar with them now. That's why I'd like to say I'm really sorry for what happened and that it won't happen again ;)

Sincerely yours,

Valued image[edit]

Bonjour Yann, je m'aperçois que je ne t'ai pas répondu avant clôture à ta question suite à mon vote sur cette page de vote. Pour reprendre le contexte au début, j'ai déjà eu du mal de voir toutes ces tombes, même si l'image est bonne, se voir remettre le Valued image, alors que pour la plupart (sauf si je me trompe) ne possède pas d'article du défunt dans les wikis, on pourrait donc se retrouver avec des cimetières comprenant des centaines de Valued Image ce qui déséquilibrerait je pense la répartition des Valued image, mais je ne suis pas intervenu. Pour le coup de l'image de l'allée, là par contre je n'ai clairement pas compris l’intérêt de l'image. L'allée en elle-même ne présente pas (à mon sens) d’intérêt particulier, donc une photo de celle-ci sans en plus d'orientation manifeste (j'ai plus l'impression que la photo montre le carré de tombes à côté), je ne pouvais pas voter pour l'image. J'espère que tu comprends mes arguments, n'hésite pas à me signaler quelque chose que j'aurais mal compris sur l'image. Olivier LPB (talk) 00:22, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Bonjour Olivier LPB,
Toutes les photos de tombes que j'ai proposées comme VI sont utilisées dans au moins un article. Il y a des VI pour des choses beaucoup moins notables que des tombes de personnalités. Et je ne comprends pas ton opposition à cette candidature. Une VI est sensée est la meilleure illustration d'un sujet donné, et cette photo illustre parfaitement bien l'aspect général du cimetière.

@Pitpisit: OK, But are you a member of the OTRS team? If yes, please add this on your home page. If not, please do not add the template yourself. Just add {{OTRS pending}}. The license template was not right. Now that it is fixed, I removed the warning. Thanks, Yann (talk) 22:41, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
I create new template for use Licensing replace old licensing How do you think??? [2] The thai government permit to use photo. So I think I create that and I have treaty to use photo [This is a letter to use to wikicommon] --Adhidech Hirunyakan (talk) 11:51, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Supposed copyright violation.[edit]

I have been targeted once again for supposed copyright violations. This is ridiculous because all of the images I upload I have taken with my own camera and either uploaded directly or edited and then uploaded. I do not know what I have to do to prove to you people that I own these copyrights. I upload these pictures for people I work with in wrestling as a favor to them, I receive no compensation for this and do not know why these pictures keep getting flagged for copyright violations. If someone were to claim to own them that would be one thing, but no one does because I own them! This is beyond ridiculous that someone can say I don't own the pictures because they think I don't. These people do now know me or the wrestlers in the pictures. Any of these wrestlers are easily reachable through our Facebook page at They will all tell you I own the pictures and they have given me permission to post any picture I take. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jasonecohen6 (talk • contribs) 13:20, 08 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Jasonecohen6:
All of your images are very small and have no EXIF data. It would help if you upload the original ones. In case of images such as File:NWA Mid America Champion Nic Noble.jpg, there is a copyright on the logo and on the belt. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:25, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

These are the only files I have for the pictures because I use a program to edit and crop the pictures. I will take note of this for the future and just upload the originals, however these are the only copies I have of these pictures because I have deleted the originals to save room on my camera's card and my computer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jasonecohen6 (talk • contribs) 13:30, 08 December 2016 (UTC)
