On this page, users can ask for a deleted page or file (hereafter, "file") to be restored. Users can comment on requests by leaving remarks such as keep deleted or undelete along with their reasoning.

This page is not part of Wikipedia. This page is about the content of Wikimedia Commons, a repository of free media files used by Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia Commons does not host encyclopedia articles. To request undeletion of an article or other content which was deleted from the English Wikipedia edition, see the deletion review page on that project.

Commons deletion (policy)


Contents

Finding out why a file was deleted

First, check the deletion log and find out why the file was deleted. Also use the What links here feature to see if there are any discussions linking to the deleted file. If you uploaded the file, see if there are any messages on your user talk page explaining the deletion. Secondly, please read the deletion policy, the project scope policy, and the licensing policy again to find out why the file might not be allowed on Commons.

If the reason given is not clear or you dispute it, you can contact the deleting administrator to ask them to explain or give them new evidence against the reason for deletion. You can also contact any other active administrator (perhaps one that speaks your native language)—most should be happy to help, and if a mistake had been made, rectify the situation.

Appealing a deletion

Deletions which are correct based on the current deletion, project scope and licensing policies will not be undone. Proposals to change the policies may be done on their talk pages.

If you believe the file in question was neither a copyright violation nor outside the current project scope:

  • You may want to discuss with the administrator who deleted the file. You can ask the administrator for a detailed explanation or show evidence to support undeletion.
  • If you do not wish to contact anyone directly, or if an individual administrator has declined undeletion, or if you want an opportunity for more people to participate in the discussion, you can request undeletion on this page.
  • If the file was deleted for missing evidence of licensing permission from the copyright holder, please follow the procedure for submitting permission evidence. If you have already done that, there is no need to request undeletion here. If the submitted permission is in order, the file will be restored when the permission is processed. Please be patient, as this may take several weeks depending on the current workload and available volunteers.

Temporary undeletion

Files may be temporarily undeleted either to assist an undeletion discussion of that file or to allow transfer to a project that permits fair use. Use the template {{Request temporary undeletion}} in the relevant undeletion request, and provide an explanation.

  1. if the temporary undeletion is to assist discussion, explain why it would be useful for the discussion to undelete the file temporarily, or
  2. if the temporary undeletion is to allow transfer to a fair use project, state which project you intend to transfer the file to and link to the project's fair use statement.

To assist discussion

Files may be temporarily undeleted to assist discussion if it is difficult for users to decide on whether an undeletion request should be granted without having access to the file. Where a description of the file or quotation from the file description page is sufficient, an administrator may provide this instead of granting the temporary undeletion request. Requests may be rejected if it is felt that the usefulness to the discussion is outweighed by other factors (such as restoring, even temporarily, files where there are substantial concerns relating to Commons:Photographs of identifiable people). Files temporarily undeleted to assist discussion will be deleted again after thirty days, or when the undeletion request is closed (whichever is sooner).

To allow transfer of fair use content to another project

Unlike English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects, Commons does not accept non-free content with reference to fair use provisions. If a deleted file meets the fair use requirements of another Wikimedia project, users can request temporary undeletion in order to transfer the file there. These requests can usually be handled speedily (without discussion). Files temporarily undeleted for transfer purposes will be deleted again after two days. When requesting temporary undeletion, please state which project you intend to transfer the file to and link to the project's fair use statement.

Adding a request

First, ensure that you have attempted to find out why the file was deleted. Next, please read these instructions for how to write the request before proceeding to add it:

  • In the Subject: field, enter an appropriate subject. If you are requesting undeletion of a single file, a heading like [[:File:DeletedFile.jpg]] is advisable. (Remember the initial colon in the link.)
  • Identify the file(s) for which you are requesting undeletion and provide image links (see above). If you don't know the exact name, give as much information as you can. Requests that fail to provide information about what is to be undeleted may be archived without further notice.
  • State the reason(s) for the requested undeletion.
  • Sign your request using four tilde characters (~~~~). If you have an account at Commons, log in first. If you were the one to upload the file in question, this can help administrators to identify it.

Add the request to the bottom of the page. Click here to open the page where you should add your request. Alternatively, you can click the "edit" link next to the current date below. Watch your request's section for updates.

File:Participation Party.jpg

In some countries witch include Japan and South Korea, escheat copyright works became public domain. --Sharouser (talk) 17:23, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

If there is an exclusion in the local copyright law that is not implemented into our copyright templates, it should be discussed in COM:VPC before posting here. If it is already implemented, please point out appropriate template (or exact paragraph in the copyright law if you need help to find it; or court cases). The {{PD-textlogo}} rationale was rejected in the Commons:Deletion requests/Files of Pipenavis. Ankry (talk) 06:30, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Template:PD-South Korea contains escheat cases. (There are exceptional cases. Property rights are to belong to the state according to provisions of the Civil Law and other laws upon the death of a copyright owner without heir or, in the case of a legal person or organization, upon its dissolution. )
Participation Party was merged into the Unified Progressive Party. After the dissolution of Unified Progressive Party by the Constitutional Court of Korea, All of property of UPP was transfered to South Korean government.
  • Political Parties Act of Korea, Article 48
    • The residual assets of a political party dissolved by a ruling for dissolution by the Constitutional Court, shall revert to the National Treasury.
  • In that case, copyrigts are become public domain by South Korean copyright law Article 49(Expiry of Author's Property Rights)
  • South Korean copyright law Article 49(Expiry of Author's Property Rights)
  • Author's property rights shall expire in any of the following cases:
  • 1.Where, after the author's death without heir, author's property rights are to belong to the state according to provisions of the Civil Law and other laws
  • and
  • 2. Where, after the dissolution of a legal person or an organization who is the owner of author's property rights, author's property rights are to belong to the state according to the provisions of the Civil Law and others laws.

File:Wealden ostracod environments.jpg

I discovered that the file was deleted because somebody decided that it "These files look professional and I doubt whether the copyright holder has given permission to release it under a free license." It looks professional because it is professional - I am a professional - and I am the copyright holder. I chose to make it freely available via Wikimedia Commons because I was asked to provide it (and several other figures) for a web page in support of a podcast that I recorded. As I indicated clearly in the text I supplied with it: This is an original diagram; a modified, black-and-white version of it was published as Text-fig. 12.3 in: Horne, D.J. 2011. Ostracods. In Batten, D.J. (ed.), English Wealden Fossils, 125–137. The Palaeontological Association, London, Field Guides to fossils 14, ix + 769 pp. It differs from the published version (to which the Palaeontological Association holds the copyright) in several aspects of layout and detail as well as the use of colour.

If I can get this image reinstated on Wikimedia Commons I will then go through the same procedure with others that were provided in support of the podcast but have since been deleted.

File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg

File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg

This image had 2 Public Domain references (one of them is Wikipedia!!!) containing the very same information buried in much text of the Free e-book by Google that Wiki is citing Corpus Reformatorum (details below), yet my original illustration with proper embedded and explicit references through Wikipedia itself (and presently on Wikipedia) was deleted evidently maliciously, diversely, and plurally, due to the fact that subsequently also in the article the "editors" deleted all references to Polish Sarmatian Astronomer Nicolas Copernicus which is a fact of history through a number of other references, which the "editors" also deliberately deleted (about half of my references of books or articles published in the last 500 years on Copernicus)!

The File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg that I have created, in fact specifically is cited in the Public Domain through Google e-books, and on Wikipedia, as and at Corpus Reformatorum:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corpus_Reformatorum The Corpus Reformatorum online CR 4 - 1837

Corpus reformatorum, Volume 4 C.A. Schwetschke, 1837

You need to scroll down to the cited page 679!

Which was stated in the deleted File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg ... “Page 679 of vol. IV of Corpus Reformatorum, containing a letter (of Oct. 16, 1541) from Philip Melanchton to a Mr. Burcard Mithobius, with first historic reference to "that Sarmatian astronomer who is trying to stop the sun and move the earth." ...

File:Photo of Charles P. Rettig.jpg

This photo and all rights associated with it belongs to us (Hochman Salkin Rettig Toscher & Perez, PC), not the NY Times or anyone else, and on September 22, 2018 we posted it on the Wiki site re Mr. Rettig.

The photo was taken in our office - by us, and posted on our firm site - by us, in April 2015. See https://www.taxlitigator.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/rettig.jpg.

This photo was not previously in the public domain in any manner until we first posted it on our firm site re Mr. Rettigs firm bio. The NY Times took it from Mr. Rettigs bio on our firm site -https://www.taxlitigator.com/our-firm/our-attorneys/charles-p-rettig/ - and first used it, with our permission, THREE YEARS LATER in 2018.

This photo and all rights associated with it belong to us - Hochman Salkin Rettig Toscher & Perez, PC and we posted it on the Wiki site re Mr. Rettig.

We would not prevent others from using the photo but it belongs to us, not anyone else, an we properly posted it on the Wiki site re Mr. Rettig. --MaraprI (talk) 16:27, 23 September 2018 (UTC) Thank you, we appreciate your consideration of the foregoing.

For images previously posted on the Internet, and because accounts here are essentially anonymous and photos are constantly uploaded without permission, we generally require that the copyright owner goes through the COM:OTRS process. That process confirms the ownership (sometimes the photographer does not transfer full ownership for example), and is clear about the rights being given. It is generally undeleted at the end of that process. Alternatively, the license could be specified at the source website. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:42, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Speedy Deletion Criteria clearly state "If a category is empty and is obviously unusable, unlikely to be ever meaningfully used, it may be speedily deleted."

In this case the categories relate to: 1) a physical, identifiable location 2) some of these locations are on heritage registers and could have photos uploaded from WLM 3) Railway stations are of general interest enough and identifiable enough that it is quite likely photos will be uploaded at some point 4) existed on wikidata and was correctly linked through

Thus I'd contend the criteria for speedy deletions has not been met as the categories are usable and able to meaningfully used going forward. Therefore the deletions should be reversed and edits on Wikidata also reverted.

It's quite time consuming to create categories on commons when a file is first uploaded and link through to wikidata properly. Thus if a category already exists and is linked properly and relates to something as obvious as a railway station I'd argue they should be left in place. This would seem to be supported by the wording of the current policy. Nickw25 (talk) 09:22, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

  • You’re right as rain, but good luck with that. My experience is that some admins swear by this holy rule and will delete any empty category on sight, regardless of any considerations. (Curiously, some of those admins wont even consider deleting galleries no matter how unmantained and shabby, because another hallowed proclamation states that galleries and categories should co-exist.) -- Tuválkin 10:04, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
