Can somebody pelase check out ticket:2007040710013293 and see if it is a legit ticket, since it has been added in plaintext by Céréales Killer in 2007 on the followig files:

I'm currently at work, and don't want to open OTRS. --Jonatan Svensson Glad (talk) 09:02, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

  • @Josve05a: it's a real ticket but it appears to contain no actual license. It's a shame, because it could probably have been fixed at the time. Storkk (talk) 09:24, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
    • @Storkk: Would you agree that it would be appropriate to tag these with the appropriate "OTRS recieved (but insufficient)" tag? --Jonatan Svensson Glad (talk) 17:48, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
      • @Josve05a: Not sure there's much point, given the ticket is 11 years old... but it might be worth a shot if a francophone user wants to reply to that ancient ticket, and see if the film studio wants to specify a free license. Storkk (talk) 17:56, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
    @Josve05a, Storkk: Apparently sending the email failed:
          A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
          recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed <omissis>
But original copyright holder said "libre de droit", which is equivalent to our "public domain". --Ruthven (msg) 07:17, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
@Ruthven, Josve05a, Storkk: So can we restore the images, considering the "Public Domain" in the email? Ciell (talk) 09:18, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
@Ciell: Ok for me. Maybe you can change the license to something like {{PD-author |author=}} (or something similar). --Ruthven (msg) 08:58, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure, there's a discussion on OTRS about the ticket, I'm not confident to restore the images. There's no response from the old mailadres that forwarded the previous emails about the public domain statement. They discuss your translation. Ciell (talk) 18:15, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
@Ciell: I've seen it, thanks. Then I agree with you, better be cautious if we do not all agree on the permission. Cheers, Ruthven (msg) 11:43, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Ticket #2018062010007572 (Bob Reis from Anything Anywhere)Edit

Bob Reis from the website Anything Anywhere has sent an e-mail to the Wikimedia OTRS team giving permission for a few very specific pages on his website, due to the nature of his website (being a commercial business) I had made a deal with him that I would ask permission per page (or pages) and that he would evaluate permission to be released under free licenses based on several circumstances, usually if I would also use some of his images in a Wikipedia article and kept him up to date on it, the licenses however are free for re-use but as I would ask him separately per a number of pages I prefer that if an OTRS template for uploading his images would be created that it would be something alongside Template:Anything Anywhere1 so it could leave room for a future Template:Anything Anywhere2. I know that the backlog is 99 (ninety-nine) days so I have no hurry with this ticket being processed (also I am working on several huge projects on Wikipedia and have to import images from earlier tickets anyhow), however when it is processed could the agent who processed the ticket leave a message on my talk page with the template I should use for every upload? --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 20:06, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Oh yeah, these separate templates for separate permissions should probably all organise into the same maintenance category (Category:Media contributed by Bob Reis (Anything Anywhere)) if possible so they can be grouped together, but as the permission will essentially be either per page or per group of pages each ticket should have its own template. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 20:35, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Update permission of File:Kylie Padilla, Filipino - Australian actress.jpgEdit

Hello! Can I ask you an update of the above-mentioned photo I uploaded? The photo was posted on her Twitter account (@kylienicolep) more than a year ago, and I'm glad that it is so unique that is why I use to use the photos from her personal Twitter account instead from her Facebook and Instagram accounts.

PS: If you have an update regarding that particular photo, feel free to answer to my response. TY. RenRen070193 (talk) 14:11, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

@RenRen070193: The owner and subject of a photo is not usually the copyright holder, the photographer usually is. Please have the photographer send permission via OTRS (with "[Ticket#: 2018072910003049]" in the subject line without quotes) with a copy to you. We have not heard from any of them yet, just you.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 15:06, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
Pinging @DarwIn.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 15:13, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
@RenRen070193: Still waiting for the copyright holder authorization...-- Darwin Ahoy! 15:28, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
@RenRen070193, DarwIn: Are there any updates or can we close this request? Ciell (talk) 16:29, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
@Ciell: Hi, authorization from the photographer is still missing, as far as I know.-- Darwin Ahoy! 16:37, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Ticket 2009101410050321Edit

Ticket 2009101410050321 seems to be for scanned copies of File:The world starts tonight front newcd.jpg and File:Natural force front.jpg album covers sourced from a record retailer, for which the art work is owned by the record company and not usually freely licensed. Please check if this is valid. Secondarywaltz (talk) 21:12, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

@Secondarywaltz: The permission was from Cherry Red Records, which matches the source on those files but doesn't match the record label on the English Wikipedia articles for those albums. — JJMC89(T·C) 02:47, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Exactly! Cherry Red Records does not have the necessary permission for those record covers and the OTRS is invalid. Secondarywaltz (talk) 03:52, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
@Secondarywaltz: FYI, I've started DRs for those two files. — JJMC89(T·C) 04:39, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

OTRS permission before upload? How would this work?Edit


I know that there is a significant delay in OTRS permissions being granted and that this is causing issues with images being deleted. Is there a way that an outside organisation who was not overly familiar with Wikimedia could:

  1. Apply for OTRS permission for a batch of images on an external website before uploading them? How would this work? What should they say? What should they add to their uploads to make it work once they have the permission?
  2. Apply for OTRS permission for a batch of images which aren't online before they are uploaded to Commons? How would this work?

I'm currently working on documentation on uploads and would really like to offer simple and easy to follow step by step advice that makes it easier for them to share images with Wikimedia and makes OTRS volunteers' jobs as easy as possible. I'm also very happy to work on documentation on OTRS pages to include this information.

Thanks very much

John Cummings (talk) 20:30, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi John Cummings , if the images have not been previously published (either online or offline), they do not need to go through OTRS procedure. The copyright holder can simply upload them to Wikimedia Commons and release all the associated rights when uploading.
But if the images have been published somewhere else, they still can be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons and if the uploader tags them with {{subst:OP}}, they will not be deleted before an OTRS agent handles the ticket. So there is no need to send a permission statement before uploading the images to Commons. 4nn1l2 (talk) 03:37, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi @4nn1l2:, thanks very much for your reply, this has not been my experience, images get deleted despite having an OTRS pending template. Could you tell me if there is a way of getting the OTRS permission before uploading the content? Thanks John Cummings (talk) 10:24, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@John Cummings: No, that is not possible, as far as I know. If I were to handle such tickets, my very first response would be "what image on Commons are you talking about".
But let me say again that {{subst:OP}} works! Please take a look at Category:OTRS pending. There are images uploaded on 4 April 2018 and not deleted yet. There are 140 (133 + 7) days between 4 April and today. 133 is our current backlog which is updated regularly at Commons:OTRS/backlog, and 7 is {{npd}}'s respite. 4nn1l2 (talk) 11:20, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@4nn1l2:, thanks for clarifying, in the OTRS release generator it gives two options:
1. Files already uploaded to Wikimedia Commons
2. Attach the file to the email
How do it work when people attach the file to the email? Does the OTRS person just provide a template with the OTRS number which is added to the files when the are uploaded?
John Cummings (talk) 14:17, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@John Cummings: Typically, when they attach the file, they don't provide enough information to fill out {{Information}} properly, so we have to ask for that information. Once we have the information (which sometimes happens in the initial message), we can upload for them (including {{PermissionOTRS}}) or encourage them to upload for themselves. If they upload, we then apply {{PermissionOTRS}}.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 14:45, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
One follow up question, if the organisation sent an email to OTRS saying 'everything a specific user uploads from our collection is us uploading it' is that possible? Would you then give an OTRS number which they would add to every upload? John Cummings (talk) 14:26, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@John Cummings: Yes, that is possible, in which case we make a template for them (including {{PermissionOTRS}}), and they can then use that template on every applicable upload.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 14:49, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: thanks very much, do you know of an example of where this has been done (so I can understand what the template is and where it should be used in the upload wizard process. John Cummings (talk) 14:55, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@John Cummings: There are multiple examples in my page creations in Template space, including {{Long Island Museum}}.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 17:51, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Charlotte Auerbach and Vote 100 ribbons imagesEdit

Hi, I've been discussing some recently deleted images with Jcb regarding OTRS permissions for an image of Charlotte Auerbach released by the University of Edinburgh's Centre for Research Collections and multiple images related to Vote 100 from the City of Edinburgh Council Museums and Galleries. The discussion is here. The Charlotte Auerbach image was deleted from Commons as no permission had been received within 30 days but the release was sent on 7 May 2018 and is in the OTRS queue to be processed. Nico Tyack, Collections Officer at City of Edinburgh Council Museums and Galleries has resent permission for the deleted Vote 100 images yesterday. So would it be possible for someone to take a look at these deletions and see if they can be restored? @Mike Peel: is this something you could take a look at? Want to make sure this all goes through okay as we are using the Vote 100 images as part of a showcase Histropedia timeline on one of the giant smart tables at the entrance to the University Collections. Any assistance would be gratefully received, Stinglehammer (talk) 13:05, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Ticket has been handled and the permission is unfortunately invalid. Jcb (talk) 14:27, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
I replied on Ticket:2018050710007885 and Ticket:2018082210004746.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 15:20, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi both. I can't access either of those links so can't tell what has happened or why the permission is invalid. Plus are we talking about the Charlotte Auerbach image OR the Vote 100 images or both? Can you explain more as to what has happened? Or let me know how one can become an OTRS agent so I can see what's happening for myself as ultimately we would like to see these images released on Commons and a lot more from both University of Edinburgh's Centre for Research Collections and the City of Edinburgh Council's Museum and Galleries. very best, Stinglehammer (talk) 11:29, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
@Stinglehammer: Ticket:2018050710007885 is about the Charlotte Auerbach image (our customer is trying to find the rightful heir of the photographer's copyright) and Ticket:2018082210004746 is about the Vote 100 images (internal discussion is inconclusive). Volunteers for OTRS membership are welcome at m:OTRS/V.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 11:56, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jeff G.:

Jeff, the copyright is clearly granted. Just tell me where do you want the mention to and it will be done ASAP. I can put it where ever you tell me. Please kindly stop blocking our requests. If you have the option of looking at the file history you will see the copyright was already validated by some other user.

en:File:Richard_Ellis.jpg and File:Richard Ellis-49 copy.jpgEdit

Hi, I noticed en:File:Richard_Ellis.jpg citing ticket 2016112510013602 and claiming that someone removed this image from Commons after it was uploaded. Can someone please validate that 2016112510013602 applies to en:File:Richard Ellis.jpg and that the license is valid? If the image was uploaded to Commons and previously deleted, can you restore it? --B (talk) 12:35, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

@B: en:File:Richard_Ellis.jpg is not mentioned at all in the valid ticket, but clearly it is it looks similar to a less-cropped version of File:Richard Ellis-49 copy.jpg, which was mentioned by name but not URL. I will leave assessment of potential previous deletion and restoration to those with more bits.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 01:04, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Thanks, but please note that in File:Richard Ellis-49 copy.jpg, he is not showing teeth, while in en:File:Richard Ellis.jpg he is - so it's different pictures. Still, though, the uploader of both images is Rsellis (talk · contribs), so if he has authenticated himself in the OTRS ticket, that should be sufficient for us to accept the second image? --B (talk) 06:41, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
@B: No. The owner and subject of a photo is not usually the copyright holder, the photographer usually is. We need permission from the photographer of en:File:Richard Ellis.jpg via OTRS.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 10:06, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, obviously I understand that, I was just seeking to know if it was something general that we had ("my photos of Richard Ellis") or something specific. --B (talk) 12:31, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Possible deletionEdit

Good day @DarwIN! I'm here again to ask about the possibility of deleting a photo due to lack of owner's authorization. I understood your side and I'm open for that possibility as well as I'll accept whatever the result might happens afterwards. Do you think you'll do that? ````

About using photographs I would like to use Hungarian border fence photos on Japanese documentary programs. It is a program on the theme of the world's borders. This time is the border theme of Croatia and Serbia. Among them, there is a story about refugees. It is about Balkan route. Since I can not get into Serbia from Hungary, I would like to convey the reality that refugees are flooding on the Croatian border.

Hey Dear OTRS team members!

Could you give me an update of the status of ticket

I've tried to contact the administrator who deleted the file. He said that you should do better on addressing this case.
Please see our conversation here:

we got confirmation from copyright holder Guela Solow.

He sent something of this lines:

We, A R K - give permission to use the work that we own - Sketch of Congregation Habonim building improvement.jpg - under the Creative Commons open license Attribution-Share Alike.

Edith StauberEdit

Ahoi! Mir ist nicht klar, warum die Freigabe der Bilder "Edith Stauber 3 Miniaturen aus dem Leben mit 47 Kopie.jpg" und "Edith Stauber Linz Martinskirche 1.jpg" durch das ORTS-Team (Eintrag durch User Josve05a) nicht erfolgen kann. Es sind eigene Werke von Edith Stauber und diese hat das Freigabeschreiben selbst per Mail an OTRS übermittelt. Bitte um nähere Auskunft, damit ich das ggf. abklären kann - danke! Dromedar61 (talk) 20:47, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Dromedar61, ich spreche zwar nicht für das OTRS-Team, aber die Bearbeitungswarteschlange (oben auf dieser Seite angezeigt) steht derzeit bei 152 Tagen! Das ist zwar ein Unding; du musst aber bedenken, dass die unzähligen Mails, die bei OTRS eingehen, ausschließlich von Freiwilligen/Ehrenamtlern bearbeitet werden, die einfach zu wenige sind. --Túrelio (talk) 07:55, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Danke Túrelio für die Info. Wenn der Eintrag nur wegen der Warteschlage ist, ist alles ok. Dann verstehe ich nur diesen Satz nicht: "Leider genügten die bisher eingegangen E-Mails noch nicht unseren Anforderungen für eine Freigabe". lg Dromedar61 (talk) 14:42, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Request from "14.10.2018 um 20:42 Uhr" and Ticket#2018071510002076Edit

  • ticket:2018071510002076: I have sent additional information on 20th september, and that email was received, but nothing happened since then. It should be easy, as the ticket only references a legal assesment by WMDE. I really hope, that this can now be resolved, so that I can concentrate on the new ticket below.
  • Request from yesterday: I have sent the request yesterday (20:42 CET, from c.suthorn address to permissions-de). The mail was sent successfully, but I did not get a reply with a ticket number. The request contains proof a a press accredition to an event, and I do not want to upload files before the ticket has been verified. One of the files shows an author signing her autobiography. The author has articles in various languages on wikipedia, but with newest foto from 2014. The book has an article in the english wikipedia, but with a fair-use picture only. Other language versions may soon have articles, as the book has been translated and may soon become a bestseller.

@Krd: Schaust Du bitte auf File:Stormy Daniels Signiert In Aller Offenheit.webm, Kategorien und Lizenz-Template? Die Mail aus OTRS ist endlich angekommen, jetzt ist nur noch das ältere Ticket offen. --C.Suthorn (talk) 20:13, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Ich werde nicht auf Zuruf alle möglichen Tickets an der Warteschlange vorbeiziehen und dafür andere Leute länger warten lassen. Das Ticket wird bearbeitet werden, wenn es dran ist.
Wenn es Probleme mit einem bereits bearbeiteten Ticket gibt, die sich nicht per E-Mail-Rückfrage klären lassen, gib mir bitte nochmal Bescheid. --Krd 05:57, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
OTRS ist schlicht ein chinesisches Zimmer. Dass es zu wenig OTRS-Mitarbeiter gibt, um die Tickets zeitnah abzuarbeiten, ist mir klar. Wie OTRS funktioniert, nicht. Werden die Tickets chronologisch abgearbeitet oder nicht, bleibt ein Ticket beim immer gleichen Bearbeiter, wie laesst sich erkennen, ob ein Ticket haengt, oder einfach nur auf Bearbeitung wartet. Die einzige von aussen zugaengliche info ist eine Tageszaahl, die sich auf die englische Bearbeitungsschlange bezieht. Dann gibt es noch auf einem Server bunte Grafiken, die ich nicht interpretieren kann, und die Kategorie OTRS pending, der taeglich eine Tageskategorie hinzugefuegt wird, bei der aber solange ich darauf schaue keine alten Tageskategorien verschwinden, oder die Anzahl der Eintraege geringer wuerde. Was darin steht (in Bearbeitung befindliche Eintraege, noch nicht angesehene, solche die haengen, oder aufgegeben wurden) ist nicht ersichtlich. Es waere einfach durch ein DB-Tool statistische Inforamtionen und den Status von einzelnen Tickets anzuzeigen, das wuerde auch die OTRS-Mitgleider entlasten, da dann eine Reihe Fragen auf dieser Seite entfallen wuerden. Bedenklich ist die lange Bearbeitungszeit, wenn eine Person, die selber nicht an Wikipedia mitarbeitet eine Frigabe erteilt und dann erst nach ueber hundert Tagen Rueckfragen erhaelt und dann ggf nicht mehr erreichbar ist oder sich mit einer erteilten Freigabe nicht weiter arbeitsmaessig belasten moechte. Zu meinem Ticket: Ich hatte dich so verstanden, dass Du es wohl zumachen willst (oder als gegenstandslos ansiehst). Dem hatte ich widersprochen, aber auch darumgebeten die OTRS-angefordert Bausteine aus den Artikeln zu entfernen (durch Dich oder ein anderes OTRS-Mitglied, aber nciht durch mich, da die Entfernung dieser Bausteine durch ein nicht-OTRS-Mitglied Fragen aufwirft und wiederum Mehrarbeit statt Entlsstung bedeutet. Das wuerde auch die Laenge des Backlogsverkuerzen und die Kategorie OTRS pending entlasten, da es immerhin um 69 Dateien geht, die dort alle aufgefuehrt sind. --C.Suthorn (talk) 06:16, 16 October 2018 (UTC)


File:BIANCHINI EDUARDO serigrafia.jpg (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs)

Could this ticket be reviewed by an OTRS volunteer to check what further information about the release can be published on Commons? The drawing detail appears oddly enhanced, presumably through digital manipulation, rather than purely an original scan of a drawing. For the copyright release to be correct the information supplied in the ticket should be more than guesswork of the current possessor of the drawing, in particular the drawing must have been created before 1896 and the artist should be unknown/unknowable through research. Though the subject of the drawing died in 1896, it is possible that this may have been an artist's impression after Bianchini's death, possibly based on portrait photographs, as an etching for later publications.

I have raised the question with @Ruthven: who uploaded this image 12 days after the ticket was received and validated it with an OTRS ticket on-wiki 2 days later. However no further factual information has been added to the image page that would satisfy the normal requirements of visibility per COM:L.

Thanks -- (talk) 17:49, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
