Hi Yuval, I don't know if this is the right place to put this or not. I see you are an admin and as the author of these images I'd like to save you some hassle and let you know that they are all Creative Commons:

Regards, Jaqian

Well, as the author you can choose your Copyright tag - maybe you'd like to use {{cc-by-2.5}} for example. Besides, you can upload the pictures directly to here too... I also suggest you that when you write in a talk page, sign by using ~~~~ for getting a link to your userpage and time of writing.

Image Cluj la 1930, Vedere Aeriana.jpg[edit]

I don't know the source of the picture posted on the Romanian wikipedia and on Commons. The picture is almost 80 years old. I have an extensive archive with old images of Romanian cities (starting from 1850), especially Cluj-Napoca, and there is where I have the image. If it will remain on comons I will delete it from Ro-Wiki. --Roamata 07:55, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

I've been very wikimissing[edit]

... so apologies for the delay getting back to you, but nonetheless your message of two weeks back on fabartus is making no sense.

     You say: (Please link images
     I saw you've uploaded three pictures, two of them aren't linked everywhere... Yuval Y • Chat • 09:50, 17 November 2006 (UTC))

I haven't uploaded anything in months, and those (were) all used in articles (see this and) See images history. ('Just category' Edits struck out)... I'm not sure where or how you'd know they were linked in any event, as what happens in an en.wp article seems not to show as a link herein. Do explain please what more you mean by links.

Best regards // FrankB 21:29, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Links means categorising the image, or even adding it to a gallery. For example - Image:Stapp hits the brakes, hard.gif isn't used anywhere in the commons. Most of the times I'm using the gallery tool for checking the images, though sometimes it can't reveal the category...

Re:[edit] The images are too large..[edit]

I've uploaded all the images at the same scale - usually 250 meters or (much less commonly) 500 meters. The full-sized images are best used with Photoshop, although I used a different program to convert all the progressive jpegs and make them all more compatible with Wikipedia's software.

We've been trying to keep them at the same resoltion. There are issues with borders and other nasty things popping up in the thumbnails created here, and the effects are lessened by using the largest scale pictures. I have, however, provided links on all of them to where you can find smaller versions of each image. I hope that helps. Good kitty 19:14, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Why not the other way? Try to upload a small version (though 1024x768 isn't that small), for using in the wikipedia ans such, and when you need the full scale version, you can dowload it directly from the web site... Yuval Y § Chat § 19:18, 6 December 2006 (UTC)


Just to let you know: I deleted File:Hamlet-PuraVida.jpg uploaded by User:Kumho; it was just deleted for missing source information, and he then re-uploaded it. I've warned him, since he's likely to just keep uploading whenever it's deleted. Cnyborg 00:35, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

I saw that he had uploaded the same image again, that's why I used the {{please tag images}} messege, for telling him exactly what's wrong, and what to do next time. You know, it's not enough to warn, you could (sould?) also explain. Now that I've explained him, and you warned him, the next time he'll upload an image without any information, he'd get kicked or something.

About Astats.jpg[edit]

Hello, I'm japanese wikipedian. An illegal up-loading act to this image happened in jawp, and this image is deleted. The image lv:image:Astats.jpg has no source/license. And Exif information on this image is the same as the image [1]. Mr.Fred Bayer who is the web master of this site, did not show any license. ---Redattore 15:57, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

It was better if you gave me a link to the page where the image is found - i.e. . I'll add the url to the image, and I guess now we can find out if it's free or what... Yuval Y § Chat § 19:17, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
Besides, the Image Tagging Image:At,85.jpg messege place is not the image itself, but the uploader's talk-page. Yuval Y § Chat § 19:21, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

I see. Thank you. ---Redattore 17:06, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

You welcome :-) Yuval Y § Chat § 17:09, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

My RFA: Thanks[edit]

Thank you for your support on my RFA. Now that I have been promoted, I promise to be as hardworking and fair with the admin tools as I have been with the other areas here on Commons. See you around and happy editing. Zzyzx11 15:53, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Good luck, and enjoy :-) Yuval Y § Chat § 17:11, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks much for changing the CC license on my images of towns in NH - I appreciate it! SatyrTN 23:50, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

שלום יובל, בשעה טובה העליתי את הקובץ הראשון שלי למיזם (Image:Aleijadinho91.jpg). מכיוון שלאחר כמעט 10 דקות נמאס לי לחכות ל CommonsHelper, העלתי את הקובץ ומלאתי את הפרטים בעצמי. אנא בדוק אם עשיתי זאת כראוי.

תודה, --R.uri 19:46, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

ה-Commons Helper עובד, פשוט יש בעיה עם בחירת הקטגוריות, כך שעדיף לא לסמן אותה. במבט ראשון, נראה שרשמת טוב.
Yuval Y § Chat § 19:50, 13 December 2006 (UTC)


I'm doing mass uploads at the moment... I'll link (or catagorize) when I'm done :). --SB_Johnny|talk|books 11:32, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Enjoy, as long as you're making sure you're uploading valid pictures =) Yuval Y § Chat § 11:33, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
Yep... they're mostly for a wikibook on gardening, but also for en.wikipedia articles. I actually make a lot of galleries out of other people's unlinked images, so I'm familiar with the issue.
BTW: you know the toolserver is down, right? (Or was that a template?) --SB_Johnny|talk|books 11:37, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
It's a template... I think I'll edit it untill the template will be online again... Yuval Y § Chat § 11:41, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
Good idea (if sad). I wish they'd fix that soon.
For now, I'm just using a hand-built gallery to keep track of them. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 11:51, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
I saw your gallery, good work :-) BTW, if you'll refresh your talk page, I've edited the template =) Yuval Y § Chat § 11:53, 17 December 2006 (UTC)


It was a mistake. Sorry. Regards, —Celestianpower háblame 22:25, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

image: Musicalbox6.jpg[edit]

Hi Yuval,

Sorry fr bothering you but I am still get acquainted to licensing procedures. I have added a licensing tag to the image I have uploaded: Musicalbox6.jpg ( Please let me know if that's correct now.

Thanks, all the best, Rodrigo

Rpwerneck 10:32, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi again Yuval,

What exactly do you need from me? I was the editor of the magazine and the rights are all mine anyway. What's an acceptable proof in this case?

Thanks, all the best, Rodrigo

Rpwerneck 17:51, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I guess that will do, so I've removed the warning... Could you also upload a larger version of the picture..? Yuval Y § Chat § 19:16, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi Yuval,

Thanks for the comprehension. If you need any extra info I can provide, please just ask.

I will add a larger version of the image soon, no problem.

Thanks, all the best, Rodrigo

Rpwerneck 01:01, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

please see my response in my page[edit]

please see my response in my page. Deror avi 08:34, 1 January 2007 (UTC)


please give me some info why i shouldn't give the real link to the web source. --JD {æ} 23:47, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

When you placed a direct link to the picture, no one can know anything about the photographer, or the copyright, which is very importance in the commons, since you can only place free pictures here. I'm not sure about the source of xPassenger's pictures, since they marked as copyrighted by S. Borsje, which I hope is xPassenger's real name...
Think about it - if all those question are asked for a cc-by-sa picture found in Flickr, what would happen if you place a direct link to a picture you've found in Google..?
Best regards, Yuval Y § Chat § 23:59, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
ah, i didn't think about that... if this is the problem then [2] should be the best link i can giv, right? i will improve the info boxes in the next minutes. just give me some more time. --JD {æ} 00:04, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
[edit:] yes, xpassenger is the real source for theses pictures — all his photos are in this style. and no, i didn't find these pictures via google; i just wanted to make the links as accurate as possible. --JD {æ} 00:07, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Google was only an example... I'm not pushing you arround...
Both of the links are fine, but I guess that the one I gave is better, since you can check if the user have another interesting pictures, etc.
Take your time, everyone is learning =)

לא חשוב. יונידהבסט פתר את הבעיה. תודה בכל זאת, זה נוח שיש פה פרצוף מוכר :-)

יוני פתר למעשה חלק מהבעיה, מעבר לכך שגם ככה אני צריך לשים חותמת אישור על התמונה.

Yuval, where are you?
רוצים למחוק לי תמונה של יצירת אמנות בתואנה שהזכויות שייכות למי שיצר את הפסל
על בסיס אותה טענה אפשר למחוק אלפי תמונות בוויקישיתוף

GAY BIAS[edit]

Good sir, I have no problem with you being gay, as long as you are willing to promise me that you will not support a pro-gay bias with your power as an administrator. Can you promise me this? I look forward to your response! 19:43, 30 March 2007 (UTC)( user Spotswood Dudley)

What do you mean by that..? Yuval Y § Chat § 15:43, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

לא מצאתי כאן לוגו של ישראל בפורמט PNG. הלוגו הנוכחי הוא בפורמט SVG, וגם עד כמה שראיתי יש טענות שהוא אינו חופשי...

orphan pictures[edit]

Hello, Yuval, Thank you for your message. I'll try to add some categories for my future contributions and maybe update some old ones. The thing is I do add most of my pictures to Wikipedia pages and I believe thay could be found that way. Best regards. Mila.

Good luck. Btw, sign by using ~~~~
