Peugoet Image:604-1978.jpg[edit]

Salut Yann

Cette photo et toutes celles que tu trouveras sur l'article Peugeot 604 sont tirées d'un dépliant publicitaire de l'époque. Je ne sais pas trop quelle licence sélectionner pour ces images. Elles ont déjà été recopiée sur notre site [1].

En ce qui concerne la photo récente, dans l'infobox Automobile a été prise par mes soins à Rétromobile 2007 Paris. J'en suis donc le propriétaire.

Merci pour ton aide.

MJ images[edit]

I wish you had looked at my user page and notified me of the concerns before hand. My advice to you in the future would be to look over someone's contributions and see if they are an established user who knows the policies before immediately deleting their photos (as you can see I've uploaded over 120 flickr photos under the correct license). Anyway the reason for this is because I have been in regular email correspondence with the flickr user who took the photos and convinced her to re-license adn release them for Wikimedia use (giving her several links to discussions explaining Wikimedia policy). However she did so incorrectly and because I saw only the two little symbols and assumed they were cc-by-sa. She has since licensed them correctly and now I have to go re-upload all the photos again. Please be more ocnsiderate to established users in the future, although your actions were within policy you'll make few friends acting that way toward established users. Quadzilla99 16:59, 25 February 2007 (UTC) - All of this was a misunderstanding on my part, I wasn't aware he/she could restore the photos so fast. Quadzilla99 17:24, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Ok she changed the license on the photos, though so you can check them directly. Quadzilla99 17:06, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
Sorry if I came of a little hostile. I type poorly and I thought would have to re-upload all of them myself which would have taken forever especially considering I deleted them from my hard drive. It would have taken me probably another 30-40 minutes. I didn't know you could just restore them so quickly. Thanks. Quadzilla99 17:14, 25 February 2007 (UTC)


Hi Yann! Image:FlickrPopularTagCloud.png is not copyrighted because of lacking en:Threshold of originality so I uploaded it again with Template:PD-ineligible. Thank you for keeping Commons tidy but in this case there should be a vote for deletion process or something like that if you still want the image to be deleted. Greetings -- Nichtich 10:15, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

If you wish you can upload just a list of words but a screenshot of a copyrighted website is copyrighted. All of the words together with the different colors and sizes, IMO is not ineligible for copyright and therefore is copyrighted by Yahoo. Yonatanh 10:40, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
There may be trademark restrictions but surely no copyright because there is not enough originality in the list. There are even less restrictions then on all of this. I can use the same algorithm, the same words and frequencies and create the same image - weighting words per frequency and using two specific colors is nothing original! It's not even sure whether there is a Colour trademark. -- Nichtich 11:01, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
I really appreciate your work and there surely a lot of copyrighted stuff is uploaded to commons that needs to be deleted as soon as possible. But this image is not copyrighted. May you please point me to convincing sources, discussions, decisions etc.? If there is a policy on commons that Threshold of originality does not need to be fullfilled then I regret it but policies are need so I won't insist on uploading this image - so based on what facts do you judge the image as copyrighted? So where does the copyright by your opinion or the current commons policy set the border?: -- Nichtich 11:37, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
  • The screenshot as I uploaded it
  • The same image in black and white (no colour trademark)
  • The same image withtout "All time most popular tags" - just a alphabetically sorted list of words weighted by size (I uploaded it at Image:TagCloudBasedOnFlickr.png)
  • The same in another font, no snapshot but same words and same sizes
  • same words, same sizes, different line breaks, different colour, different font.


Hey, I was wondering why you tagged that picture as having no source since I think that user did take the pic and tagged it with a self license (I'm saying this because he also uploaded two of the pics in Category:Footballers_from_Israel and Image:Ramat Gan Stadium.jpg which all have to do with Israeli football. Yonatanh 10:20, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Images: TinTin and Harry Potter[edit]

Hello Yann,
You say that Harry Potter and TinTin not a public domain is. But TinTin Bruxelles.jpg is a public domain and I've edited it and I thought I am allowed to edit and distribute my edits of public domains.

Concern Harry Potter,
HarryPotter.jpg is not a public domain, indeed. But it is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 2.5 license. Wich sais I'm allowed to edit the file and distrtibute my edits under the same license. That's what I've done:
HarryPotter2.JPG, HarryPotterh3.JPG

So I think the pictures are totally legal.

Greetings Toon Maassen

You deleted my image as "copyvio". Care to give the reasoning? --User:Dante Alighieri User talk:Dante Alighieri 19:02, 27 February 2007 (UTC)


Bonjour Yann. Je connais bien Wikipedia (fr+en) mais je découvre Commons. logo En fait il s'agit du logo de mon labo de recherches, dessiné il y a 2 ans par une collègue (auj. partie), laquelle m'a dit au téléphone qu'il n'y avait pas de problème pour l'utiliser. D'ailleurs légalement le logo est probablement propriété de mon institut de recherche / du CNRS (plutôt que de l'individu qui l'a créé). Sous quelle licence indiquer qu'il s'agit du domaine public? Et sur quelle page indiquer cela? Merci d'avance, Womtelo 16:39, 28 February 2007 (UTC).

Bonjour Yann, Le détenteur des droits (© Lacito-CNRS) autorise l'utilisation de son logo dans Commons. (email envoyé par le responsable du laboratoire aujourd'hui, à La licence qui convient est-elle {{Attribution}}? Je ne suis pas sûr, il y en a tellement... Merci. -- Womtelo 18:06, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't know. You don't have to be such a jerk about it.--MonkBirdDuke 21:36, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Cristina Donà image[edit]

Sorry, I don't understand the tag you put on this: Image:Cristina Donà StazioniLunari Firenze dic06.jpg Why does it have unsufficient information about copyright status?? Thanks--Sibilla 21:46, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

OK, the author asked to upload this image. But the same should be for the other images in the Cristina Donà Gallery.. they have all been originally published on that website ( the authors gave their permission.. but you didn't put any advice about them before--Sibilla 21:56, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

I uploaded a new version of the file above: Image:Cristina Donà FestivalCreatività Firenze dic06.jpg that has originally been posted on Flickr. For the other pics in the Cristina Donà gallery the authors will write an e-mail with their permission to I hope it's okay. Bye --Sibilla 10:41, 1 March 2007 (UTC)


Hi Yann,

when you do special:newimages patrol, I think you should just delete any files that don't have source or licensing info straight away. We already tell people we will do this -- special:upload says If you do not provide suitable license and source information, your file will be deleted without further notice -- and I think we should start following it up. For one thing it is best to delete files before they have a chance to be used in articles, so you don't have to worry about delinking them. For another, it saves a lot of hassle because then later it isn't that someone else has to look at it and check things. If one person can deal with it, it can save a lot of effort.

I have been deleting no source/no license newimages "on sight" for about a week now and it is going well, even no one complains on my talk page yet. Also when you spot someone re-uploading the same file it is a good chance to give them one last warning, and if they continue, then block them. cheers, pfctdayelise (说什么?) 03:58, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

In quite a lot of cases, the author just forgets to put a licence even if he is the author of the image. Even I do that. Usually the author has a blue-linked userpage, though. Even if you only pick red-linked userpage users, there are lots who don't put source information. Don't forget, a description of the image is not a source. And a "self" template is not a source. cheers, pfctdayelise (说什么?) 04:39, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

For restoring my images.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 02:19, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Lestath is deleting them again. Could you comment at Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests? I don't want to see any wheel warring, but it seems to me like he is acting rogue here.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 00:43, 2 March 2007 (UTC)


Do you want the exact URL to the photo or just a wikilink to the page? --Oakster 17:44, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Never mind. I've just seen an example from you. Thanks for the advice. --Oakster 17:48, 1 March 2007 (UTC)


Hi, First, sorry for my poor English, I'm Spanish. I`ve seen you have deleted this image. It is licensed as [2] and I would like to know the reason of the copyvio. Thank you MasterJ 22:18, 1 March 2007 (UTC)



Comment est-ce que je peux importer une image si son auteur m'a donné de l'autorisation de l'utiliser dans Wikimedia à travers de mon e-mail?--Le K@l! 06:25, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Image:Groupofzombiesjoelf.jpg - why this image was deleted? BeŻet 23:10, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

...And why Image:Gt-pro-series-2-.jpg was deleted? You are deleting images on free licenses... It had the {{Attribution-Ubisoft}} tag!BeŻet 12:26, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

...and Image:Kubuspuchatekwinnie.jpeg? The same as above BeŻet 12:27, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Next time please request image for deletion before deleting it so users can have time to explain you some things BeŻet 12:48, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

When it comes to the screenshots, please read (and learn) this User:Avatar/Ubisoft. A german version of the discuusion with an Ubisoft employee can be found here. An example can be found here Image:Lock On Cockpit MiG.jpg. Best regards BeŻet 13:02, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

I know that. The image Image:Groupofzombiesjoelf.jpg was NOT form the film, you must read the description carefully. It was taken during the shooting of the film, thus it IS LEGAL. It HAD a free licence. And what about the screenshots which have FREE LICENCES aswell, but were deleted? BeŻet 15:33, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Thank you. I believe it is confusing, because it is not typical for game companies to release their screenshots under free licenses. Best regards BeŻet 16:07, 4 March 2007 (UTC)


Hi! The diamond I was using was probably copyrighted because it was taken from a Google search, so I've done a new version using Image:Diamong.jpg. Also, I've added this info to the page of the picture. Is that enough? Thank you! Steve-o 14:37, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi Yann. You deleted an image that I uploaded, because you said it is not free. However, the website stated: "We hereby grant to You a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Image on the terms and conditions explained in this Agreement and on the Image preview page FREE OF CHARGE."

Also, I forwarded to Wikimedia Privileges an email from the copyright owner, stating: "I own the copyright to the image mentioned in your email letter and found at and also the image I attach to this email (Ab8wP1140258.jpg).

Book cover picture[edit]

Hi. You deleted the image I uploaded of a book cover: Image:Space Viking (pb cover 01).JPG. What's the problem? I took the picture myself.
Wwoods 19:54, 4 March 2007 (UTC)


You are vandalist. I don't understand why you destroyed photo small-eared dog and bush dog, I totally don't understand, If really was someone bad, that you or other man who know on licence can this correct but not now destroy. I write the author, licence, source.... I must end cooperation with wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and wikimedia commons.....this is difficult choice but I can't normal creature the articles. I must destroy my all articles, sorry, but I must this doing. Why you destroy my pictures, this is free encyclopedia and other sisters projects, I don't think so. User:Caniche Caniche


I don't think {{PD-ineligible}} was wrong license there, for me it was to be accepted. I think sometimes we have to use implicitly positive solutions. And your message you put into the uploader's (Juanmak) page would be rather never read by him, he does not work here since October 2005.

Hello Yann,

It seams artifort is doomed on wikipedia. Ive placed some material this morning and no one believes I work for the company itself. Ive been trying to add a page purely with information on the models and their designers. Nothing fancy, just info.(more because people keep mixing up the models and its designers) But ive already got a warning that it was an advertisement rather then an infomation site. And by the way, our logo's and images are all royalty free(some special reason within the furniture branch) If you still don't believe me, please e-mail us ; User:Artifort

Hi! I don't brake law when I have upload those images, because I have rigts and needed permissions to upload them :D. I think, they are very important in Wikipedia, so please tell me, can You upload them? I don't understand licensing rights on Wiki. And I don't want to have problems, almost everyday with it.

deletion of Image:1112FIC326x550.jpg[edit]

Hi there,

you deleted a picture of the en:OpenMoko-Phone (Image:1112FIC326x550.jpg) with the comment "press image, no source, copyvio". As you might know, OpenMoko project is about creating a GPL cellphone, so their goals are not that far away from wikipedia's. I don't know, if it was stated within the original image description, but Sean Moss-Pultz explicitly released the pictures under the GFDL. (see He is the lead project manager and an employee at FIC. I don't know about the conventions here at commons, but would you consider restoring the picture ?

You delete "Image:Sarahvulva.jpg"[edit]

We used it in two german wikipedia-articles - no porn-articles. We used it a long time ago. So its a bad surprise. Please restore the picture. You can not see in commons that it is used in german wikipedia? Thats a problem!

  • Picture from april 2006: [3] aus google
  • [4] German article
  • [5] second German article -- 12:08, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
I don't get it... wether it is being used on another wiki or not is irelevent. It's an image stolen from an amateur porn site, and therefore should be deleted, and removed from all articles see:Wikipedia:Talk:Vulva#Stolen image. The stolen porn-site image should be deleted. 14:09, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm guessing this is why there is a tag on the DJ Wolfe pic. The higher-res versions of the images were on my old computer.

About Image:GPLLinksysLogo.png, and your deletion of it[edit]

I left a note stating the source of the logo, proof that it is under the GPL, and detailed instructions on how to extract the freely licensed logo from a GPL'd .tgz file at . I do not know how this file could be labeled as no source, and no license after all the work to prove the source and the license. Someone must have vandalized the image description page. Could you please restore this image? Thank you. Jesse Viviano 15:54, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

  • By the way, no one had bothered to notify me about the impending deletion, so I think that the {{Nsd}} that was probably used was invalid. Jesse Viviano 16:08, 10 March 2007 (UTC)


oh thanks for the explanation, now i know what to do and what not to do, very thanks, and sorry, i only have fotos from myself but i don't know if it is right to put them, can i put photos that i myself take?

Affiche du film les anges de satan[edit]

Bonjour, Je m'appelle Amine Soulaymani, assistant réalisateur et assistant directeur artistique sur le film "Les Anges de Satan" de Ahmed Boulane. Je suis en outre informaticien, developpeur Zope/Python/Plone. J'ai été chargé par Ahmed Boulane d'ajouter une page à Wikipedia en ce qui concerne le film. En mon âme et conscience, j'ai crée une page objective, sans publicité ni "arnaque marketing": synopsis, quelques anecdotes et fiche technique. Pour l'agrementer, j'ai ajouté l'affiche du film en basse qualité, avec l'accord du réalisateur. Cette petite image a été postée dans de nombreux forums, et a été communiquée à la presse, et son utilisation est libre mais copyrightée. Votre démarche de suppresion de cette image est certainement justifiée, mais j'ai reçu l'accord formel de son utilisation dans Wikipedia par le réalisateur et producteur du film. Merci.

Have you contacted the uploader? Does his email address look like the one here? Thanks!   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 21:47, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Well, seeing that he probably lied when uploading this picture, I have a problem using his opinion. This site is not just some pictures of his wife... Yann 22:05, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Image:Badgerpages1.jpg[edit]

Why have you deleted this image? It is a picture of the newspaper of my university. I used the correct option...

Dear Yann,

I'm completely baffled as to why you deleted this image. I took it with my own camera and uploaded it to Commons myself under - as far as I can recall - a perfectly suitable license. If there was a problem with it, you ought to have contacted me to discuss the matter before deleting. Please would you either undelete the image or get in touch (s p k 3 0 at cam dot ac dot uk) to let me know what the problem with it was.

Dear Yann,

Thank you for your reply. That image was intended to be licensed under generic CC-BY-SA; my mistake. I would be grateful if you could undelete the image.

Best regards,

Deletion of Image:Chandleraz_logo.gif and Image:Chandleraz_logo.svg[edit]


I am not sure why you felt it necessary to delete the images for the seal of the City of Chandler that I uploaded. Perhaps the .svg version was not of low enough resolution (or any resolution, for that matter) to fit fair use, but I would have preferred some contact, messaging or warning in that regard before completely deleting the images. Let me know what would be acceptable to upload for use in the Wikipedia article for Chandler so that a suitable seal image can be included in the article without being deleted.

Regards, Ixnayonthetimmay


Salut Yann,

Il faut supprimer cette photo, comme ça je mettrais la même mais droite et avec une meilleur description. Cordialement, Bianco Dorian 11:57, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Image:Naomi Campbell.jpg[edit]

Hi, Yann. You deleted this image as "copyvio", but it appears as cc-by on flickr: ? What did I missed? Thanks! --Abu badali 15:39, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Image:Kaltenengers am Rhein.jpg[edit]

Hi Yann! I just saw you tagged an image uploaded by me with {{no source since}}. Since the description page says it's "own work" by de:Benutzer:Luftauge.1 I wonder what information might be missing? --Lychee 21:15, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Image sleuthing for Image:Cricket World Cup trophy.png[edit]

Could you look at this deleted image -- -- which was deleted as a copyvio and see if it is the same image as en:Image:Cricket world cup trophy.jpg, Image:Cricket World Cup trophy.png or Thanks. --Iamunknown 23:45, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Hey Yann!

Concerning: Image:Johann Christoph Dreyhaupt.jpg

There is currently a "Schreibwettbewerb" (writing contest) at and my article covers

I asked ( if there is an oil painting of Dreyhaupt (I saw this picture on a school's website), hoping for some /serious/ information. User "Bucherhexe" uploaded this image to do me a favor (her first Commons upload). I brought this issue on de.wp's information desk where especially "AndreasPraefcke" confirmed my concerns about the originality and the aesthetic value of this painting. We believe that it was done in modern times, possibly to create a modern illustration of the school's eponym. I have not found any information about an /old/ oil painting of Dreyhaupt.


  • this is a low quality image
  • it is /not/ old
  • so it has no cultural, historic and aesthetic value
  • it's not needed to illustrate the article

Believe me, that I am the first to upload his picture again, if I have found any suitable information about an old painting of this great man.

I truly appreciated another deletion of this image, unbureaucratic and without distrust.
