TfD nomination of w:Template:PD-Old regime IraqEdit

w:Template:PD-Old regime Iraq has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for Deletion page. Thank you.   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 14:35, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

OTRSEdit

When you upload a flickr image, please tag it with {{flickrreview}}. (If you use Special:Upload and select one of the "flickr" licensing options from the drop box, it will automatically be added for you.) Adding that tag places it in a category for a bot or a trusted human to check the image against the source license on flickr to confirm that the license is valid. This review process is sufficient for the image to be accepted - nothing needs to be sent to OTRS. Because the flickr page itself specifies the license, no further information is needed. But if the image comes from some other third party website, ie, this image of Dr. Falwell that I got from Liberty University, there needs to be evidence beyond my say so on file that it has actually been licensed under the GFDL. The same is the case with some of the Tech massacre photos. For example, this photo was all over the news media and the OTRS submission from the author contains a statement that he is the photographer and that he releases the image under the GFDL. --BigDT 22:43, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I misread part of what you said ... when you upload a photo from flickr that you, personally authored, it isn't necessary to add {{flickrreview}}. It's best, though, to say in the "source" field something like, "I took this photo, in addition to uploading it here, I also uploaded it to flickr at http://whatever". That way, there is no confusion. --BigDT 22:49, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Grouping deletion requestsEdit

Please make a single DR when there's more than two or three things for which the same rationale applies. Grouping things makes everyone's job easier - comment in one place for those participating, and only one request to deal with for admins. For the future :) – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 02:06, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, can do. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 04:15, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Help:Mass nominationEdit

Please do a mass DR when nominating many images by the same user for the same reason. This makes everyone's job easier.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 01:19, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Fourthords!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Star Wars picturesEdit

Yep, these are not listed. But where taken in the same place — exhibition in London, 2007. Acording to British law, as it wasn't a pernament exhibition, these pictures are not free. Explanation is in the deletion request. Cheers. --Sfu (talk) 18:17, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Obama videoEdit

Do you mind if I retitle File:President Obama on His Birth Certificate & the Real Issues Facing America (reduced dimensions).ogv to something more neutral, like "Obama speaking after release of long form birth certificate"? This is the title of both the screen captures in Category:Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories. I recognize that the White House is the one that originally gave it this promotional title.--Chaser (talk) 15:06, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Sure, I don't mind. I just gave it the official WH title as a matter of expediency. — Fourthords | =/\= | 16:55, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Iditarodlicenseplate.jpgEdit

Just letting you know I am contesting the speedy deletion request on this image as I think it merits discussion first and there is a larger issue involved. Your input is welcome. Beeblebrox (talk) 02:38, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Oh, i see now that you have just nominated a great many license plate images for speedy deletion, so you are already aware of the larger issues involved. I don't think speedy deletion is the right way to deal with this, a discussion should be had on wether or not such designs, as a category, should be permitted here, instead of leaving it to the discretion of a single administrator. Beeblebrox (talk) 02:47, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

The license image has been looked at by the NC Attorney General's office and approved for its current use:

From the talk page:

- Richfife (talk) 02:09, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

They're right, there's no need to license that image (pay the state) to use it due to fair-use considerations. What we need to know is whether it's acceptable for us to host this image and allow others to (1) modify, (2) re-distribute, and (3) profit from this image in every way (see COM:L). Provided the state of North Carolina finds these terms acceptable for their design of that license plate, we may host it here at the Commons. — Fourthords | =/\= | 05:35, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
The quote is "there is no need to license a plate picture in order to use that image". Not "there's no need to license that image (pay the state) to use it due to fair-use considerations". Two very different statements. The first is from the NC Attorney General's Office, which is the final arbiter here, and clearly is intended as a blanket statement. Who else do you think is going to raise a stink? - Richfife (talk) 07:11, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
… and I'll follow up here. — Fourthords | =/\= | 17:26, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
