Canadian Forces FlagsEdit

Hello. Thank you for your diligent efforts in removing copyrighted images. However, I didn't have the chance to save them at home to transfer them to the English Wikipedia. Is there any chance I would be able to transfer them? Thanks for all of your time. Trackratte (talk) 01:35, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Just so you know these files have been listed at undeletion requests.--Nilfanion (talk) 10:41, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

If they don't get undeleted - I can help you move them  Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:17, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good and thankyou. A discussion has already been started at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Flag of the Royal Military College of Canada.svg. Instead of starting several at the same time, I think it would be easiest to focus on the one only and then apply to the rest. Trackratte (talk) 20:31, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Let's see what the community have to say...  Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:37, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

UnDREdit

You recently deleted several images of the Canadian Forces. They were improperly tagged as "Fair Use" but are not violations. I have filed an UnDR, please grant it. Fry1989 eh? 17:36, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

I have replied on the page  Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:17, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Canadian Space Agency Coat of Arms.svgEdit

I noticed that you un-deleted the Canadian Space Agency Coat of Arms.svg, despite it being a derivative of a copyrighted work (which was linked to in the request). I have opened a regular DR as you suggested, but I didn't think SVG versions of copyrighted works, even if slightly different, were considered new works rather than derivative works. I understand that in this case it's a COA, but as far as i know that only explains the rationale behind a new work (based on the blazon) rather than a derivative work. I would appreciate your comments either way. Commons:Deletion requests/File:Canadian Space Agency Coat of Arms.svg. Thank you, The Haz talk 01:25, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

It was undeleted with several other Canadian images (see talks above) - I saw it as a derivative - if you took the original and, say, changed the colours of the stars, then that's a derivative. How far one can move away from the original image until it no longer resembles it, it a moot point. Who ever drew the svg (and I've made a few myself), must have had the original image alongside to work from - thus it's a close copy (I've turned jpgs into svgs by having the jpg load into the drawing program and them adding the vector elements on top of it, finally deleting the jpg when complete - it's not exactly the same, but it's a derivative) (copy to DR if you want)  Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:21, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Madhukar_Dhas_on_MTV_Set.jpgEdit

Hi, I noticed that you deleted this page https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Madhukar_Dhas_on_MTV_Set.jpg for copyright reasons. Kindly note that the uploader is the owner of the website that you referenced, BigDooker.com. I've not used the Commons much, so I don't know how to request undeletion. Do help! Susheel c (talk) 07:12, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

All editors in Wikimedia are effectively anonymous. There is no way we can validate who a user really is within these pages. Therefore the best way to upload images is to upload them to Wikimedia first - then it can not be said that the image was copied from elsewhere. If the image was on the web already, then it needs some explicit permission. Either
  1. The remote image page needs to show the appropriate license - e.g using code from http://creativecommons.org/choose/results-one?license_code=by-sa&jurisdiction=&version=3.0&lang=en. Allowable licenses are usually CC-BY-SA, CC-BY and CC-zero.
  2. The copyright holder (that will normally be the photographer - unless there is a written release of copyright from him/her) needs to send in the form at Commons:Email templates/Consent
Then the image can be undeleted.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 00:18, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Ok, the uploader / owner of the website is my uncle, so I'll ask him to do the needful. Thanks Susheel c (talk) 18:38, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Eduardo Garcia Caffi.jpg and File:GARCIACAFFI.jpgEdit

You deleted File:Eduardo Garcia Caffi.jpg as a facebook copyvio a few days back, however it looks like the same user has uploaded the picture again, this time as File:GARCIACAFFI.jpg, can you check and action this ? LGA talkedits 23:42, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Good spot, tagged up, user warned.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 19:09, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
