Wikicommons media upload that are in violation of copyright.[edit]


I am new to editing/uploading wikipedia and wikimedia commons. I would love to contribute but I think my mistake here is not fully understanding first what are the things that are not supposed to be uploaded and what makes a media copyrighted. I will review the rules and copyright information to make sure I don't violate it again.

What I would like to ask is what would be the best step for the images I have previously uploaded. I was thinking of just deleting them but I can't seem to find where and how. Your guidance will be much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Yann could you please approve my logo --Derasu (talk) 22:26, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi, This is not OK. You need a permission for complex logos. Regards, Yann (talk) 04:33, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Judge_Graham_on_the_Scale_With_Speed_King_Podcast.jpg Deletion Question[edit]

Hi! It looks like you deleted the file, Judge_Graham_on_the_Scale_With_Speed_King_Podcast.jpg, under an alleged copyright violation. I uploaded the file on behalf of and at the discretion of the subject, Judge Graham, from his official website, But I think because I'm new to uploading files to Wikimedia Commons I might have indicated the wrong permissions on the upload on behalf of the subject in the photo.

Do you know how I would go about un-deleting the file if I've received permission to upload the photo to Wikimedia Commons by the subject in the photo?

@Prufrock1888: Hi,
As for any image previously published elsewhere, we need a formal written permission from the copyright holder, which is probably the photographer, not the subject. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:35, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

2 questions[edit]

Hi, concerning this edit :

1) Can you quote the guidelines where it's written that a nominator with less than 50 edits can vote ?

2) Why deleting this FPX template ? The quality is just terrible and very far away from a FP. Also FYI, this template has just been added again by someone else -- Basile Morin (talk) 07:06, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Basile,
COM:FPC says Everybody can vote for his/her own nominations. No problem to FPX it for quality reasons. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:32, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
No, COM:FPC says Editors whose accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Everybody can vote for his/her own nominations. The nominator had exactly 3 edits before launching this, so could not vote.
"No problem to FPX it for quality reasons", but as the main reason given was the quality is insufficient, so why did you remove the template ? -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:00, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but that's a long standing policy. The second phrase makes it clear that it is an exception to the first phrase. You can ask anyone about this. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:10, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but this was not clear. If that was the main reason, sorry for the misunderstanding. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:10, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Now concerning N this edit on this section, my messages are signed and are intended to remain signed. Then you should read the Talk Page guidelines : "Generally, you should not break up another editor's text by interleaving your own replies to individual points; this confuses who said what and obscures the original editor's intent" -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:36, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
About the vote (at least 50 edits), the guidelines are quite clear in my opinion and I Symbol delete vote.svg Disagree with your interpretation -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:42, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
It has been like this since this rule was created. We have had plenty of nominations with votes by new users. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:47, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Could you give an example ? -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:50, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't have the time to dig into the archives. You can do it yourself or ask anyone else, if you don't believe me. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:26, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Exactly, I don't believe you and think you're changing the official rules -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:04, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
You need to assume a bit of good faith... :( Yann (talk) 14:24, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Good faith is on my side -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:27, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
✓OK After having asked other people, it appears you are right, Yann, concerning this particular rule. My apologies for having been too skeptical. Best regards -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:27, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Basile Morin, a small point: Yann helped set up Commons back in September 2004, and even made the earliest edits to the Main Page. He also helped set up FP. So, I think you should work from the assumption that he knows the rules and guidelines. Anyone can make a mistake or forget or get sloppy, but here you seem to be treating Yann like he only started this year. -- Colin (talk) 12:20, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Files by PennyLane89075[edit]

I spoke to PennyLane89075 in the IRC help channel; they said they uploaded the photos to Facebook (see this talk page's history), downloaded them, and uploaded that to the Commons. Apparently somewhere in the process the EXIF data got lost. I see no reason to doubt them and advised them to add a note to Facebook to clarify that they indeed are the same person and uploaded the images to the Commons, and to try and transfer the images from their mobile phone to a computer directly, without Facebook, and to re-upload them, in hopes that that might not lose the EXIF data. I tried a Google Images search for some of them and came up empty. Maybe you want to keep an eye on that? Some of them looked quite useful to me, and it would be a shame to lose them due to copyright confusion. Huon (talk) 15:06, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

@Huon: Hi,
I would advice PennyLane89075 to upload the original files, not small versions from Facebook. People upload all kinds of images to Facebook, and its copyright policy is not compatible with a free license. Thanks for your help. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:27, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

I don't have the originals anymore, delete it then I know the work was mine I'm at peace with myself

@PennyLane89075: Hi
Please sign your posts. You can send a permission via COM:OTRS (in English) or COM:OTRS/pt (in Portuguese).
For the future, I advise you to install the Commons App on your mobile, and upload the files directly. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:49, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
You can change the license on Flickr, and mention a free license on Instagram.
Personally I would be fine if you upload the Facebook files to Flickr with a free license.
The link to Facebook is broken, and for viewing the images, one need to be logged in to Facebook. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:01, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

PennyLane89075 will add a free license on her Facebook account. Yann (talk) 17:18, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

I'm not fully aware about license on instagram my account is not private.

My old flickr was hacked I have a new one but these picture from facebook I do not have the originals anymore I can only send the posts I appreaciate the time and patience I feel a bit better now so much assistance was given.

Guerre d'édition sur Commons[edit]

Yann, bonsoir. Je vais à présent rarement sur Wikipedia mais je viens de voir que vous avez effacé mon montage Lophostropheus au motif que je l'aurais téléchargé. Mais c'est la journaliste Coelia Priam-Keilani de Saint-Mandrier (une personne tout-à-fait réelle) qui l'a téléchargé, et pour une raison très simple : c'est parce qu'en dépit du fait que dans son article [1] elle m'avait mentionné comme auteur de ce montage, l'administrateur Elcobbola le lui a attribué (voir sa liste d'images à effacer sur ma page de discussion [2]). En tout cas merci à vous de m'avoir averti que même pour des fonds de carte il faut mentionner la source et vérifier qu'elle est libre. Je l'ai fait par-ci, par-là quand j'ai eu un moment, mais je vois sur Commons des milliers de cartes qui ne mentionnent pas la source de leur fond (NASA ou autre) et qui sont donc, si j'ai bien compris, toutes susceptibles d'être effacées ? Il y a aussi cette photo [3] qui n'a eu aucun souci alors que sa source (qui, elle, a disparu) est le Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, comme pour plusieurs de celles que j'ai téléchargé mais qui, elles, ont été effacées. Donc il suffit qu'un document ait un rapport avec moi pour être effaçable ? Mes collègues ou relations sont tous mes faux-nez, à bloquer d'urgence et à vie ? Après des années de bénévolat et pas tant d'erreurs de téléchargement que ça, je ne suis plus qu'un charlatan, un voleur de ceux qui veulent bien me citer, un plagiateur des cartes en anglais je traduis en français ? Et tout ça, simplement parce que j'ai cru que je pouvais monter en Photoshop quelques portraits d'après des photographies anonymes de personnes décédées depuis un certain temps ? (Les familles de ces personnes m'ont passé ces photos pour les mettre dans Commons, mais elles ne m'ont peut-être pas donné ces images qu'à moi... il y a tant d'autres sites.) Remarquez que je m'en fiche, je ne suis plus actif. Si la totalité de mon travail est détruit et mon nom sali par un administrateur qui a décrété que j'étais un salaud, ce n'est pas un souci. Tout est éphémère de toute manière. Pauvre Lophostropheus, et pauvres professeurs du Muséum ! Comme je dis toujours, y compris à ceux qui m'insultent, do for the best. À vous, un bon automne ! Cordialement, --Spiridon Ion Cepleanu (talk) 21:02, 17 September 2018 (UTC) cheminant doucement en direction d'un monde sans copyright et sans procès d'intention.

Bonjour Spiridon Ion Cepleanu,
Oui, il y a de nombreuses images sur Commons qui ne devraient pas y être. Certains ont avance le chiffre de 1% (500 000 fichiers), ce qui est à mon avis une estimation basse. Si vous estimez qu'une image a été supprimée par erreur, vous pouvez demander la restauration sur COM:UDR, en fournissant le maximum d'informations possibles. De nombreux fichiers sont supprimés simplement parce que les informations complètes n'ont pas été fournies. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 04:07, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:DirkCoster1930s.jpg[edit]

Regarding this close, can you answer the question I posed: don't we need a source that says that no one knows who took this photo, per Commons:Anonymous works? Finnusertop (talk) 13:14, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

You can never prove a negative. If the source is reliable, and no author is mentioned, it should be OK. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:56, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Kārlis Johansons - 189x300.jpg[edit]

With most wiki systems I learn through trial and error until I get the hang of it. I make mistake is good faith that someone might fix my mistakes, clean up my accidents, or teach me about it.

As I was uploading this file I had linked to where I got it, twice. One is in the body of the description. I don't know where the link went for the copyright. Either way, this is the source: I also came across another variation on the same photo here: It claims it's from 1922. I had assumed it was old enough to be copyright free and was eagerly waiting for feedback about it.

Also, perhaps you can help me with the Wikipedia infobox on the English article for Karlis Johansons. I just don't know why all the data isn't showing up, including his photo. I spent hours trying to fix it.

Thanks in advance, please ping be back. ~ JasonCarswell (talk) 02:15, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi JasonCarswell,
1. You need to add a license to all files you upload. If you don't the files will be deleted after a week. The source gives no information about the date of first publication, which is a bit of a problem.
2. The description is too long here. This text is for Wikipedia, not for Commons.
3. {{Anonymous-EU}} might be OK, but I am not sure all people would agree. Regards, Yann (talk) 03:36, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. It's a start. ~ JasonCarswell (talk) 03:39, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Interesting this, I've asked Smolasty repeatedly to contact OTRS. But only now after telling them at did they respond. "zmiana zdjęcia na prośbę artysty" means "Change photos at artist's request" btw, so Smolasty is not Smolasty himself. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 03:34, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
