Copyright violationEdit

I have added DR for 1, 2 & 3 files due to copyright violation, and all DR tags have been removed by uploader without explanation. --AntonTalk 02:26, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Arctic circle.svgEdit

Hello. You tagged this file as having no source. Looking through the history it looks like the metadata was vandalised a few years ago, removing this info, or else it's in the original work this was derived from. You might want it have a look and restore the data. (I would do this but I'm travelling at the moment and that's a non-trivial thing to do from an iPad). Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 08:24, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Mike Peel, took the 'no source' tag off and fixed it with the source "CIA Fact Book." Thanks to Fæ, it is solved! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:45, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Great, glad it's sorted out. :-) Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:29, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Your input if you have the timeEdit

Ellin, If you had a moment, I was wondering if you'd care to have a look at a DR to let me know if the opening sources/statements are clear. I would just like to avoid a repeat of the Canadian Space Agency badge, where the central argument/evidence I was (attempting) to get across was lost in the subsequent discussion/noise. If you don't have the time, no worries, I know you're busy! Thanks. trackratte (talk) 04:18, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Re: File source is not properly indicated: File:Armenian Air Force roundel.svgEdit

Hi, I've added a source, you can add a best one if you need. As per license, the image is my own work. --F l a n k e r (talk) 19:18, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi F l a n k e r, Tag removed. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 00:20, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, cheers, --F l a n k e r (talk) 21:24, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

My comments at COM:AN/BEdit

Hey Ellin, don't take my comments at COM:AN/B to be including you, because they don't in the slightest. I just like seeing otherwise unproblematic content being deleted simply because of who created it. This is not something that we generally practice here on Commons, but seems to be the modus operandi of some (but not all) on English Wikipedia. All I ask is that we look at things objectively and not get dragged into hysteria. :) russavia (talk) 14:15, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi russavia: Thanks for the update and I agree that hysteria is bad, I just don't see it in this case. I've commented over there to not clutter over here with the details! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:22, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Pictures Bert van LooEdit

Hi Ellen, I noticed you deleted the pictures of Bert van Loo. I can assure you that he personally gave me these pictures, that he took himself, from his own sculptors for use in Wikipedia. I send the written permission he gave me to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org. Could you be so kind to undelete his pictures please? Or please help me to provide you or Wiki with the appropriate means to undelete his pictures. Please help. Thank you Madhu Gopal (talk) 13:54, 16 July 2014 (UTC) Hi Ellen, I understand Bert van Loo needs to sign this http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ right? How does he do that, or is the contract he send me enough (which I send to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org)? Could you please help me, I really want his pictures restored asap? Thank you. --Madhu Gopal (talk) 14:22, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Madhu Gopal: Please visit the OTRS page where this issue can be solved. Once you send permissions to the email address you give, it's the OTRS editors who will be helping you. They are as backed up as the rest of us, please be patient with your requests to them. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:39, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Missing sourcesEdit

Hello, Thank you for your email. I don't have much time right now but i will do my best to get it al done. I have lots of photo's on my computer wich i want to opload too but i didn't get time for that too. i am still figuring out how it all works. Greetings Rob Hille User talk:Rob Hille

This relates to the bottom half of [1] where many of Mr. Hille's images need descriptions. They were his earliest images. If any other people who are good with flowers are interested in helping out, that would be great. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:54, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

File:1914 Pittsburgh Rebels team photo.jpgEdit

Thought I'd let you know that Hedwig in Washington added the missing source for the picture on May 21, 2014. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:08, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Awesome! Ellin Beltz (talk) 02:29, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Human Heart and Circulatory System.pngEdit

You deleted the Human Heart image. I am the author of the image and allowed National Geographic AND Wikipedia to use it under the wikipedia guidelines. http://bryanbrandenburg.net/wikpedia-heart-3d/ Please undelete. Thanks. Preceeding unsigned by WhatIfWeCould

Hi WhatIfWeCould: Thank you for your note. I'm so sorry about that! I have undeleted the file and left a note on the talk page explaining my error in the deletion. Again, my apologies! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:54, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Horvitz photosEdit

Russavia undeleted two of the photos previously deleted through DR out of process so I've started new debates at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Laketahoewhalebeach.jpg and Commons:Deletion requests/File:Pyramidlakenv.jpg.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 16:19, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

I've also listed the cropped versions for deletion on the questionable copyright grounds.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 20:49, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

I've found another sleeper account based on Horvitz's admission that he uploaded a photo for a particular Wikipedia page (and actually edit warred to keep it in use).—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 00:36, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Make that two.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 00:45, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

God, all you have to do is search his name and wikipedia and you get gold.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 00:57, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

There's a couple of really good references about this including here and here. Ellin Beltz (talk) 07:09, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
All I did was throw "david horvitz wikipedia" into Google and it came up with all the photos I found earlier.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 08:53, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Back view of man on beachEdit

Hi Ellin, Was it you that I had the conversation with about the so-called art project with the guy posting images of "back view of man on beach", mostly on California beaches? If so, I found another one today. Invertzoo (talk) 01:26, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Invertzoo: Please feel free to write me about it here, or by email. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 07:11, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I have the info I need now. Invertzoo (talk) 14:18, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Source = mechanical reproduction of 2D imageEdit

Source information is not only used to write something in a source field. The reason for providing sources is also:

  • Allow users to verify that the describtion matches the content. Thats important since many of our users dont put any effort in what they upload, sometimes they just grab a file from google imagesearch and the subject they searched was only mentioned on the website they found but isnt shown in the file. See en:Wikipedia:Citing sources#When and why to cite sources, the scope and educational purpose of Wikimedia Commons sources is not different.
  • of legal nature for international users, see COM:ART. For non-US users it indeed is important if the photo was taken by e.g. a British photographer or from a British institution/source.

If you dont have any information for the source field please leave it. I refere to File:Queen Henrietta Maria circa 1637 by Van Dyke.jpg. --Martin H. (talk) 04:02, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
