This image is now under discussion, as there is (no more?) proof that it is PD. It is obvious that the image was somehow free before, as we can see in the internet archive links. But the biggest issue is that there are some limitations as well, as it is mentioned that the image can not freely be used in newsarticles etc. To keep this image on Wikipedia, it would need to get one of the supported licenses. The easiest way to manage this, is to get a mail sent to OTRS, like it is mentioned on http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/WP:OTRS. Edoderoo (talk) 20:49, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Revision deletion on my talk pageEdit

Hello. I'm a little bit curious about what you deleted [1] (in between) from my talk page. If it concerned myself i have some interest to know what it was about. --/人 ‿‿ 人\ どこに見てもオッパイばかり 12:50, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

  • I forgot to log in, so I deleted my IP address which is potentially geolocating. It could have been oversighted, per policy, but revdel should do - Alison 12:54, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Deletion reasonsEdit

Would you mind providing deletion reasons and links to the DRs at your deletions? exmpl.. Thanks. I do not need to mention that your deletion reasons with "clearly not an adult" and so on are laughable. But you may know that yourself. Have fun censoring Commons. --Saibo (Δ) 00:40, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

It's clearly pointed out in the deletion discussion. The automated tool, which I don't particularly like, left out the deletion rationale. I'll likely just do them manually in future, while I'm "censoring" pics of naked children on Commons, kids who were legally unable to provide permission. The word 'censorship' has been abused and bandied around Commons now to the point that it's now meaningless. But you may know that yourself. Have fun trashing Commons - Alison 00:53, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Fix it. You are responsible for your edits. --Saibo (Δ) 01:50, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
That said, I am happy to have such medical experts here at Commons who can judge from a blurry mobile phone photo that a person is not at least 18. God bless you! And save the children! --Saibo (Δ) 01:55, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
(Nearly (I did not check all)) All the recently deleted files (by you) are trash (quality POV) you are right - but why can't you leave the DRs open at least(!) 7 days and provide such laughable reasons and do not let the community judge? --Saibo (Δ) 02:13, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm glad you appreciate my 'medical expertise' - it spurs me on to do better and further work here :) However, I'd like to point out that I'm not averse to appropriate pictures of children's genitalia where these are clearly educational, illustrative and provided in context. Here's an example of an image from the English Wikipedia, from a medical publication, and here are my comments voicing my appreciation to the uploader. Note that both myself and the uploader found the image appropriate, tho' upsetting (it relates to a poor surgical outcome). It's all about context. If I see pictures of naked children on here that have been uploaded by a child, for example, I'll speedy-delete them where and when I can. Children cannot give consent, per law, and cannot release rights to such images. That's apart from the fact that this place is jam-loaded with inappropriate, out-of-scope, poor quality images of all sorts. We don't need them, and they detract from the quality of the extant image bank, and the project as a whole. As admins here, we are trusted to exercise good judgment, often autonomously - it's what we're paid for, so to speak. And I'm an admin here of some years, voted in by the community and for the community. Not only have I Commons' interests at heart, but also of the subjects depicted and of the appropriate laws. It's a balance, and we have to use our discretion. Also, I appreciate your blessings here, but I'm not religious in the slightest! Thanks, though ;) - Alison 04:35, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Mein_penis_und_ringelsocken.jpg at least you provided a reason for deletion (which Denniss did not). But is there a chance that you respect the usual deletion request duration in future? Thank you. --Saibo (Δ) 12:52, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Like I said, I'll act as I see prudent in serving the best interests of the project. Thanks for your concern - Alison 09:30, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

BlocksEdit

Please note [2] - I think there should be given a notification. At least if it is a indef block! Also note that I have reverted your block extension - please do not act in a rage and scare away people willig to contribute. --Saibo (Δ) 13:12, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

  • I never block an account based on an emotional response, least of all in a 'rage', as you put it. The block and legal implications of the uploads were already discussed on Jimbo's talk page (y'know - that guy you hold in so much contempt) and I did what was most prudent. There was no 'rage; involved. In future, I'd appreciate it if you would ask before undoing any of my admin actions; they are all done with due consideration and with good reason. If someone is here soley to upload their own underage genitalia for erotic purposes, I'll be only too glad to "scare them away" and will likely do so as I see fit. Thanks for the advice, though ;) - Alison 09:29, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
    • Jimbo's talk page ... is that mention intended as joke? If your action would not be so obviously unjustified and personal opinion-driven I would not have reverted it, of course. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 15:18, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
      • No, it's not meant as a joke. In fact I pointed it out to both you and Denniss at the time as it contained comments pertinent to Commons. Here's the link again. You can see it was User:Wnt, in fact, who brought up issues related to the uploader in question. Commons, believe it or not, does not exist in isolation and certainly does answer to the other projects. As to your wheel-warring, you should be aware that User:Mattbuck spoke out strongly against the practice here on Commons only last week. Undoing another admin's action - especially undoing a block - should never be done, IMO, without first consulting that admin. Furthermore, you repeatedly restored one image that another admin (Denniss) had rightly deleted, and declared the deletion to be "laughable", yet the image had clear legal implications in many jurisdictions. This was all covered on Jimbo's talk page, which was why I drew your attention to it. You chose, however, to brush this off. Your prerogative, of course. As to my indef block of that user, please do not second-guess either my motive or my emotional state at the time. All blocks I've made, on all projects I'm admin on, are done dispassionately and with due consideration, and I've done almost 10,000 blocks now. These are always carried out in the best interests of the project and with due consideration of policy. It really is that simple. So in future, please do not undo any of my admin actions without first asking. Thanks :) - Alison 21:42, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
    • Btw: That comment regarding your block might be interesting to you. --Saibo (Δ) 12:35, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
      • Interesting in that Trycatch declares, "What The Fuck". Uninteresting in that he concurs with your flawed opinion of my block. Thanks, though :) - Alison 21:42, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
        • Hmm, at least it was partly interesting. Have a nice week! :-) --Saibo (Δ) 22:01, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Your talk page protectionEdit

[edit=autoconfirmed] (indefinite) - could you please remove it (probably it was just forgotten)? People should be able to contact you - especially if you do admin actions. Thank you. --Saibo (Δ) 13:12, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

  • This was done by User:Túrelio last year, as I have one of the most vandalized user/talk pages on-wiki due to my being checkuser on the English Wikipedia. It goes with the territory. I'll unprot it and see what happens - Alison 09:24, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks for trying - I hope you understand the motivation of my suggestion. Maybe setting up a more specific abuse filter is an alternative in case of continued vandalism. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 15:16, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Comments on a DR closure by yourselfEdit

I have been asked by an editor to look at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Mein penis und ringelsocken.jpg which was closed by yourself, and after reviewing the available on-Commons information, there are some concerns with this closure by yourself.

Firstly, and less importantly, in the close you have closed it "Per Commons:Deletion requests/File:Mein penis und ringelsocken.jpg" which is the actual request in question. Is this an error on your part? Did you mean to refer to another request?

Most importantly, this image was the subject of discussion on JW's English Wikipedia talk page; the Commons community was not involved in discussion at all. Discussion which occurs offsite and on another WMF project, without the wider eyes of the Commons community, is somewhat problematic. This is because we obviously have policies and guidelines which control our content here, and that control is driven by this community.

After looking at the available information, your close of this DR was rushed, and has resulted in deletion for an incorrect reason. The photo File:Mein penis und ringelsocken.jpg, uploaded by User:Ralf 20 shows a semi-erect penis, in which it looks like the person is pulling down the foreskin. There is obvious hair on the upper thigh region, but is appears from the photo that the pubic area is free of pubic hair; most likely shaved, which is quite popular these days amongst many younger guys. File:Mein Penis von hinten.jpeg is another photo of Ralf 20 showing a person wearing the same socks, but taken from behind showing the anus region with the now-erect penis being held down between the legs. The are obvious tufts of hair on the back of the legs up to, and including around, his anus region. File:Mein penis 14 cm.jpg is a similar photo of the same penis to the one at the DR and File:Mein penis.JPG is the same penis yet fully erect.

It is obvious that this is not a 13 year old penis, but is the penis of someone who is likely 20 years old (judging by the editors username), and hence should not have been deleted upon that rationale, much less due to "serious concerns".

Having said that, the photos should have been deleted as per Commons:Nudity#New_uploads, but that is in itself a matter for community discussion, but on this occasion this has not occurred, due to off-Commons comments being used to control our content.

I am not going to undelete the file, and reopen discussion, but it would be great if you would go back to the DR and "reclose" it only based upon Commons content guidelines and policies.

I hope you would agree that this is an example of why it is of utmost importance for the Common community to control its content on-Commons instead of offsite and/or via other projects. russavia (talk) 03:05, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Just a comment... that the user is "likely" 20 years old because his username is "Ralf 20" is so weak it's not even worth suggesting. From what I recall of the image, the subject could realistically be anywhere from 13 to 30. Even with a clear shot of the subject's face there can be some uncertainty. The age discussion should be less about how old this particular subject is and more about how we can (should?) reasonably verify that nude subjects are in fact of legal age. – JBarta (talk) 08:53, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Alison, I have gone ahead and re-amended the close to be based purely upon Commons:Nudity#New_uploads. Hope you don't mind me doing that; it's better to get it right, rather than suppose that it is child porn, when it likely is anything but. Other than that, no probs. russavia (talk) 12:39, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Actually, let me go on record as saying that I do object to your petty restoration/deletion of that image, not that it matters at this point. I've no interested in counting the hairs on his nadger, thanks all the same, and I'll stick to my policy of deleting any images that I perceive to be potentially illegal and/or uploaded and licensed by those who may not be legally able to release rights - Alison 05:21, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Shouldn't we block users who attempt to defame other users?Edit

Source [3]

"Fear of being banned, to give an example from just now. People have raised matters on-commons repeatedly only to find themselves blocked - Alison ❤ 23:33, 10 May 2012 (UTC) "

This shows how wrong you are.
  1. Don't mix up to bann an to block, please.
  2. Making untrue claims and being uncivil is indeed a reason to block. After I complained about that, the user in concern didn't apologize but tried to justify what he did. "I called Fæ's comment, not Fæ himself, silly." is just one example of the poor tone of the user who obviously felt attacked by my comment.

Request to UNDELETE the photos of Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr..JPG, Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr2.JPG and Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr3.JPGEdit

My name is Faith M. Fernandez and I am the daughter of Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr. who is a prominent labor leader of Davao City, Philippines. My father died on June 9, 1979.

Sharpie2007 wrote an article in Wikipedia.Org about my father Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr. [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudy_Fernandez_(labor_leader) ] wherein which the family of Mr. Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr. is so grateful about. I have further given complete permission to Sharpie2007 to use the photos of my father under the filenames of Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr..JPG, Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr2.JPG and Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr3.JPG. I was very surprised that suddenly on the 14th of March 2013 a Wikipedia Editor with the username INeverCry deleted the three photos in question. I further advised INeverCry that I have given complete permission to Sharpie2007 to use the said photos.

I have further given the scanned copies of the death certificate of my father (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/36095247/Rudolfo%20A.%20Fernandez%20Sr.%20Death%20Certificate.jpg ) and my birth certificate proving that I am the daughter of Mr. Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr., (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/36095247/Faith%20Fernandez%20Birth%20Certificate.jpg ) to the said Wikipedia Editor INeverCry and he instructed me to write to you, hence this email.

I therefore request your goodselves to UNDELETE the said photos so it can rightfully be returned back to where it has been inputted since January 2010. I am further willing to do anything and everything that you instruct just to be able to make sure that the said photos will be inputted back to the said Wikipedia article of Rudolfo A. Fernandez, Sr.

I look forward to your immediate acknowledgement of the above. Faithfern09

I find your sarcasm here rather unbecoming - please either comment in good faith or not at all. -mattbuck (Talk) 22:59, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

  • I'll do as I see fit, Mr. Buck. And in this instance, I'm certain I've treated this with the level of gravitas it clearly deserves - Alison 03:53, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

OdderEdit

It is clear from his edit summaries that Odder was involved in a heavy dispute regarding Jimbo Wales and left after making it clear that his actions were unbecoming. As an admin here, I would request that you explain to Odder how his behavior has been completely unacceptable on Commons in attacking and intimidating those who try to stand up for our BLP standards. Ottava Rima (talk) 19:21, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

FaeEdit

For obvious reasons, Fae wont be able to make the same smears of homophobia he uses to distract from his wrong doing, so you are able to talk to him when others can't. [4]. He tried to smear me by claiming that I only uploaded 90 images when it is obvious that I uploaded over a thousand. After this was pointed out, he made the above attack. The discussion guidelines makes it clear that his incivility is really inappropriate, and that he has been acting out of control because the policy would be tightened to ensure that promotional material is deleted as not being educational. It is obvious that a handful of people are trying to use Commons to get attention, money, or some other benefit that is outside the purview of this community. It is obvious that they will make whatever nasty comments and threats to ensure that they can continue. Ottava Rima (talk) 16:48, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Now here - Fae failed to link you. Ottava Rima (talk) 17:19, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

HarassmentEdit

If you don't see harassment, all I can say is that you have very selective vision, or you clearly need to open your eyes. I won't stand for harassment of other editors on this project under any circumstances. And thanks for fixing that revdel, he didn't request it, but I thought what the hey, but obviously missed the text bit. Cheers, russavia (talk) 07:51, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Harassment is a serious matter, Russavia, and one I'm more than familiar with. Harassment, however, is not a number of serious, well-meaning, yet pointed questions. Pointed questions can make people squirm. That's not harassment - Alison 08:15, 23 September 2013 (UTC) (and my vision is fine, thanks! :) )
    • Would you like me to show you precisely where particular people have had a hard-on for the editor in question for a long-time, and are now openly linking him with paedophilia (there's no need to read between the lines Alison). I don't need to show you, for you are in the thick of it day-in, day-out. Also, if you think that we are here to make people squirm with allegations of wrong-doing and illegal activities, then I sincerely suggest that you reconsider your position on these projects, because that is NOT what we are here to do. russavia (talk) 08:22, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
      • Seriously - can you try to dialog without bringing penis into it? I believe there are questions to be asked and answers to be provided; it's that simple. What you're doing is tantamount to censorship and to an outsider, looks a whole lot like cover-up. Especially as all that were provided were links. Links to on-wiki evidence. Now, step back and let Jimmy handle it. If it's to be dismissed, he can dismiss it - Alison 08:29, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

I propose reinstating the editsEdit

See my note on Russavia's page. Also, Alison, could you possibly add your voice to my request for a comment on meta [5]? I would be very grateful. Peter Damian (talk) 19:28, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Your technical help is neededEdit

Hello, I'm addressing you as an Admin (indirectly picked this page searching for a recently-active en-speaker on the admins' list). One of our users has earlier tonight taken a "blessed initiative" and, somehow spotting on me while I was uploading my files and categorizing them, performed file-renaming to no less than 15 16 of my just-uploaded files as well as older ones, all invalid acts! I contacted them when I noticed the first four moves, assuming that they hadn't fully been aware that they were abusing their mover-rights, and let them know that I would pursue undoing those renames back to the legitimate names. Unbelievably, right after giving me a not-so-mannered response - they continued renaming many other files from my plethora of contributed images, and I have no explanation to that other than either craziness or an odd will to damage my work. I've been volunteering here on Commons from 2009 and haven't experienced such a terrible thing. Needless to mention that these 15 16 (and probably still counting) renames, being all against any policy or rule we have here, are an absolute joke and are all reversible to the last one, but obviously I can't do this myself as the rename process automatically converted the original names to redirects.. Very kindly fix it, given you have the technical tool to overcome it. Thanks.

[6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12], [13], [14], [15], [16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21]

HiEdit

Hi, how are you? I still remember your nice action to me from almost a year ago. Anyway, I came here to request that my user and talk page of Trongphu is deleted from en wikipedia please. I believe it's possible to do that, right? I've known many instances of people asking for that request. Regard! Thanks!Trongphu (talk) 19:13, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
