AryaieradEdit

Promotional / advertising-only account. Blocked on enwiki as well. Please block it, and delete those files too. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 08:01, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

You warned the user. All uploads are nominated for deletion. No other action is needed at moment. I see no advertising, simply unused personal photos. Taivo (talk) 13:43, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
@Taivo: Okay. I understand. Block if they upload some again. Actually, Aryaierad probably has written a book "Torah in the name of Islam" (check the deleted files), and seeing global contribs i personally think they are just here to self-promote. Not likely to contribute like all of us. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 17:43, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

N. PayenEdit

  — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 17:59, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

@Jeff G.: I do not really know how to use WikiCommons, it seems slightly complicated. Forgive me if I delete content that I should not delete, I did not know I was not allowed. Please tell me how to archive it and I will do. Regarding the picture of the oratory, I answered on the image discussion: I do not think that it is illegal content regarding French law, as it is located in public space. N. Payen (talk) 18:18, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@N. Payen: Aside from what I wrote at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Oratoire Notre-Dame-de-Grottais.jpg, if the photo would be illegal for you to put on a t-shirt or coffee cup and sell in downtown Guer or Paris, we will not host it here on Wikimedia Commons.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 21:25, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Bmxracerx - repeated copyvio uploads and permission problemsEdit

The user claims this file has been taken by them "in Los Angeles, August 2019", whereas the EXIF contains generation data from May and June 2016. I am no expert for technical image questions or EXIF data, but this seems almost impossible and an intentional falsehood. Usually I would just speedy-nominate the file, but the user has been repeatedly uploading files with invalid permissions and has been repeatedly asked to use OTRS if needed. Could an admin please check the data situation and the user's history? GermanJoe (talk) 04:48, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Camera clocks can be set incorrectly, but one wonders how Bmxracerx would explain that a photo supposedly created in August 2019 could appear elsewhere in 2018 or even 2016. I think they might find they'll need a fire extinguisher for their pants. LX (talk, contribs) 09:03, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
