File:China Online Centre 01.jpgEdit

Ciao! This file and next to this were uploaded to Commons with permission of the photographer, and OTRS was like this


So could you restore them? Sorry for the inconvenience. --Melirius (talk) 18:25, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

I've asked about this at the OTRS noticeboard. Let's see what they say -FASTILY 21:36, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Let's wait for the answer. --Melirius (talk) 14:34, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
They answered! Could you restore these two images? --Melirius (talk) 01:07, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Images taken by Israel Defense ForceEdit

Fastily, Please I am asking you stop to delete the files. There is a war now and we can not meet now the IDF Spokesperson's Unit. I am sure that we will get more claere permession. I am asking you to be more patien, Thanks Hanay (talk) 23:42, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

You also deleted File:Israeli Air Force jets Fly-over Auschwitz concentration camp.jpg That recieved another permission that I my self got. and there is no problem here. Every picture in this category should be checked before doing anything. Thank. Hanay (talk) 23:57, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, if the IDF gets back to us and says that the images are available under a Commons-compatible free license, then let me know so I can restore these. Regards, FASTILY 03:13, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
The sad part is most of the files were free, due to the release announced here and [1] all file published before December 1st 2011 are free. On this date the IDF spokesperson has re-licensed all his flickr photos from cc-by-sa to cc-by-sa-nc. As the cc-by-sa is a non-revocable license all those uploads are free, files uploaded after that date were covered by the weak ticket. So mass delete without reviewing the status of each file, including file which had specific good OTRS ticket is a shame and a waste of volunteers time. I will restore all the free ones. It is easy to use a bot to delete files, you were elected to use your judgment and common sense, not mass deleting. I have lost trust in you as an admin after this action. matanya talk 09:13, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Alatau T. AtkinsonEdit

Can you help me move File:Alatau T. Atkinson (PP-67-6-006).jpg back to File:Alatau T. Atkinson, 1902.jpg and delete the move from its history if you could? Thanks.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:31, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Done! Hope that helps, FASTILY 19:53, 31 July 2014 (UTC)


Well, I believe that you are wrong in closing this without discussion, and you have also used the template for the July nomination incorrectly, as it reads January 2011. Geogene (talk) 19:11, 1 August 2014 (UTC)


Please consider mentioning User:FastilyClone on User:Fastily; you do the converse. --Elvey (talk) 21:48, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Admin roleEdit

Is it appropriate for an admin to, after nominating a file for deletion, but having the discussion not go his or her way, delete a file him or herself, ignoring the discussion points? I think not.


You say that, "Apparently gradients exceed the threshold of originality," implying that you are aware of a legal source to back the claim. Can you please provide a legal citation to back your claim? I can't see where you did so.
