File:Security Now.jpgEdit

Hi Ellin. Did you consider the source (bottom left corner) that had been added by the uploader? --Leyo 20:14, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

I don't see any license or creator information on that source page. I see the identical image, with no information needed for the Commons upload. I Google searched the image ( as here) and found it all over the internet with no clear licensing information on the largest files. Sorry, but "all over the internet" isn't the same as "public domain" especially for something like this which is the logo for some guy's podcast. Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:57, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
While on the page I linked the license is stated to be CC-BY-SA, en:Security Now says it's CC-BY-NC-SA. If the latter is correct, the logo indeed cannot be on Commons. --Leyo 21:46, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
The only thing I see is "These netcasts are released under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license. TWiT® and the TWiT Logo are registered trademarks of Leo Laporte." As you point out, that license is insufficient for Commons. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 05:02, 25 September 2014 (UTC)


Hello, and thanks for pointing out some photo problems , I posted some photos but if you wish to please speedy delete some of them thats ok. Welcome, I am sorry my photos are not too good, I am not well aware of rules etc but many friends here too, sometimes like them and share them, so I thought maybe I can also share? Best wishes, Rangbaz (talk) 17:44, 27 September 2014 (UTC)Rangbaz

Hi Rangbaz: Please read COM:L before uploading more pictures. The two images that I removed yesterday were taken directly from someone's website and put up here without concern for actual license, which is why I suggest to you that reading COM:L would be a good idea before uploading more. You cannot upload photos taken by others and published on websites (with a very few exceptions). Taking photos from other people's websites is the very fast way to have the photos removed. I am particularly concerned by File:Lahore 5.jpg because that one came from a website which is marked "all rights reserved." See: and look lower right side, it says "all rights reserved". That means you can't "share" those photos here on Commons. We're not a social media site. Your own pictures as far as I looked at them seem ok. But recently you swiped a whole pile of photos from the web, and those cannot be uploaded here. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:47, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Photo DeletionEdit

Hello there. I have permision for the photo I uploaded at File:Hilton College Rugby Player.jpg . I was told I must refer to OTRS ticket 2013052310011269 Thanks Mattpbarry (talk)

Hi Mattpbarry: Please go to COM:UNDEL and state the reason you wish the file restored. I don't have OTRS rights or permissions - that's a different subset of administrators. I'm sorry I cannot confirm or deny the validity of your OTRS number but the COM:UNDEL editors are experts at all that. Please accept my apologies for the trouble of the process. Cheers!

Coat of Arms for the 508thEdit

Why was this deleted? Works of the U.S. Federal Government are in the public domain. And can be found here.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 22:25, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Please restore it, and correct the issue(s) that was created by the deletion.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 22:26, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi RightCowLeftCoast : That crest had a source that went to a non-functional web-page and it was removed for no source. Images - even those of the U.S. Government - require a valid source for the file data set. Thank you for your inquiry. Cheers!! Ellin Beltz (talk) 06:31, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
