File:Dragana Dujovic.jpgEdit

File:Dragana Dujovic.jpg seems uploaded the third time. Please protect it from upload. Seems like there are socks used to upload it. Conduct SPI if necessary --✝iѵɛɳ२२४०†ลℓк †๏ мэ 08:42, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

 Not done All different images. (Of course, still likely copyvios.) Protecting would be counter-productive, as the images would probably just be uploaded under a different name that is not on anyone's watchlist. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 08:54, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Category:Sockpuppets of Jeff G.Edit

Could someone please protect the non-existing Category:Sockpuppets of Jeff G. from being created again? Liza Veniza (or a copy-cat) made it twice, once in May and once today. As User:Jeff G. is a trusted contributor here I suggest that this category should only made made in the actual event of sockouppetry from their part and make it to "create=Administrators only" so Liza Veniza (and imposters) can't recreate it. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 16:59, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

User:Gdsg44Edit

This seems to be a sock-puppet I have seen pop up before (e.g., User:Vhvyghu). Adds spam copyvio images of clothing (also mostly of Asian women) from various sketchy eCommerce sites. IronGargoyle (talk) 02:36, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

User:Jonathan7375Edit

The user regarding continuously uploads images of food packaging which exceeds threshold of originality after numerous warning. The user also attempted to ignore these warnings by removing the warnings templates on the user's talk page. Maybe a block for a week is suitable?廣九直通車 (talk) 09:03, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

@廣九直通車: He disputed the speedy deletion on the file talk pages, saying in Japanese that he took the photos with his iPhone. Clearly he doesn't understand the problem. COM:PACKAGING doesn't have a Japanese translation, so this might be an issue of language barrier. Can you explain the exact issue to him in Japanese? Guanaco (talk) 09:19, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, I can only read some kanji for Japanese , not for the most commonly used hiragana. What about inviting a Japanese-speaking user to explain the issue to the user regarding?廣九直通車 (talk) 11:41, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Miya, Whym, Y.haruo: Could one of you talk to him about this? Guanaco (talk) 11:46, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@廣九直通車:I thought that it was deleted because I use photos on the Internet. I wonder if it means "Product Packaging is copyright-protected" ? Jonathan7375 —Preceding comment was added at 01:15, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
@Jonathan7375:Yes, unless the packaging is too small (which can be a de minimis)(Japanese Wikipedia explanation), too simple (which can be under the limit of threshold of originality) or it is too old (which can be in public domain).廣九直通車 (talk) 04:27, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
@廣九直通車:I understand. I have received a request for work on Wikipedia from the Ajinomoto Company making products of photographs. The Ajinomoto company told me "Please use the photo as you like." What is necessary to prove it?Jonathan7375 —Preceding comment was added at 05:23, 19 July 2018‎ (UTC)
@Jonathan7375: If the request was via email, please forward it with full Internet headers via OTRS with a copy to the Ajinomoto Company. If not via email, how did you get it?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 11:49, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.:My boss has received a request for work. I will consult with my boss once. Thank you for giving me good advice. Jonathan7375 —Preceding comment was added at 01:32, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Modification of a protected page (File:France champion of the Football World Cup Russia 2018.jpg)Edit

Hello,

First of all, sorry if this is not the right page. I am not very accustomed to requests to sysops on Commons…

Could a sysop correct the french version of the description of File:France champion of the Football World Cup Russia 2018.jpg? The current version does not have any sense. A correct version should be "Équipe de France victorieuse de la Coupe du Monde de Football de 2018 en Russie". Thank you! Litlok (talk) 07:54, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done Yann (talk) 08:58, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

"FIFA" should be in the descriptions on that page.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 13:12, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

I don't really care, but there is only one Football World Cup, so... Regards, Yann (talk) 14:37, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
