Image:Dornberger-Axter-von Braun.gifEdit

The deletion justification:

03:30, 4 January 2008 Rlevse (Talk | contribs) deleted "Image:Dornberger-Axter-von Braun.gif" ‎ (Dupe of Image:Dornberger-Axter-von Braun.jpg)

is false. The Image:Dornberger-Axter-von Braun.gif was not a duplicate and to claim so is a fabrication by Rlevse. In particular, the gif had more people pictured than Image:Dornberger-Axter-von Braun.jpg, which has two people missing on the left and is missing the face of the person on the right. Please restore the Image:Dornberger-Axter-von Braun.gif page and all the previous text which had the entire photo that was at

For comparison, refer to to see a copy of the image with all of the subjects.

Also, the page created by at Image:Dornberger-Axter-von Braun.jpg mistakenly uses caption(s) that have the missing person(s) names.

Please inform Rlevse and CarolSpears of their oversight and to use sufficient attention to detail when comparing photos in the future. Thank you for your consideration

Alright, I've undeleted the image.
I don't know in what way I should change the caption. Perhaps you can do it yourself?
Fred J (talk) 22:33, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Sorry if I have caused problems. I did a search of the 744 wiki and made sure that the image was not being used. I did not write that caption, I merely made sure that some of the templates were working. Heh, it was authored by the complaint registerer. Heh.
It would be nice to get a higher resolution jpeg of the image with the more people in it. I probably should also mention that I am sorry that I am sorry because it seems to be a sign of weakness or of 'I am not perfect' which does not have a place in this century. -- carol 00:14, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Now it has been deleted because a guy couldnt keep his fingers away from the delete button when its still under OTRS pending. --Mihsfbstadium 17:39, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Why do you not ask if there is another email coming or anything and just decide hey its been sitting here long enough lets delete. I been asking if you have checked for that email and nobody has said anything. Why cant we just undelete it until you can find the email. Is it that hard to take someones word that their is an email. Its getting fustrating wating for you admins to decide to even look. If you dont want to then I can just reload it up every few days until you can give me answer on this. --Mihsfbstadium 14:51, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

What makes me mad is that this picture has been deleted twice now and the fact that it was still in the process of being validated.

Image:MacBook Air 1.jpgEdit

The photograph was deleted (and subsequently replaced with a pixelized version of little value) as a result of this request. The rationale is that it contains non-free imagery, but the content in question is not the image's principal subject; the computer itself is.
I discussed this matter with ABF (the deleting administrator), and he/she indicated that the deletion was based upon the argument by Rocket000 that "this is pretty much a screenshot of non-free software, which we delete." In fact, this isn't "pretty much a screenshot," as the clear purpose is to illustrate the computer, not to illustrate software.
Kaomso made this point by citing Commons:Derivative works, in which it's noted that a photograph of a child holding a stuffed Winnie the Pooh toy doesn't violate Disney's copyright unless the intended purpose is to show Winnie the Pooh. Clearly, this photograph's intended purpose isn't to display Homer Simpson; it's to display an operational MacBook Air computer. As noted by Kaomso, photographs of Times Square contain a considerable amount of incidental imagery that is non-free, but that doesn't mean that the photographs themselves are non-free (nor does it require us to black out or pixelize the content in question, thereby reducing the photographs' quality and authenticity). —David Levy 15:25, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Undelete Image:No_Israel.svgEdit

The image was not deleted for the reason you stated. It was only deleted because it fell out of project scope by not being of good use. 哦,是吗?(O-person) 02:39, 19 January 2008 (GMT)
:), Image:No god.PNG has worst use. I don't care about it, I'm caring of fairing before deleting an image (Delete all, keep all)--OsamaK 11:52, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
  • I prefer to delete all, except those with encyclopedic use. Naked female bodies, 14th century images of Muhammed, photos of penises with syphilis and photos of anti-gay protestors might be offensive to some people, but they have encyclopedic use. Self-created anti-logos, on the other hand, don't have encyclopedic value. / Fred J (talk) 12:40, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm inclined to agree. From en:Wikipedia:User pages#Inappropriate content: "Wikipedia is not a soapbox is usually interpreted as applying to user space as well as the encyclopedia itself. You do have more latitude in user space than elsewhere, but remember: don't be a dick about it." When the userboxes got out of control, there was widespread opposition to it.
A picture may be worth more than a thousand words, but sometimes it is still better to use your words. If for some reason it is absolutely crucial to your work at a Wikimedia project that others are aware of your opinions on Israel or God, then write them down if you must, but it's probably not in your own interest to use an image which some people will inevitably construe as wishing death upon all Jews or all religious people, rather than what you intended. LX (talk, contribs) 20:48, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Then let's delete all of them (the No/Anti-something) where they aren't being used in an encyclopedia article without further debate. NoGod for example is used in 100+ userboxes. If we leave it up to a deletion debate only unpopular anti beliefs are going to get deleted (as happened here), and others will be kept simply because they have more supporters (who will quite predictably pile onto commons to vote). There are only two fair possible outcomes, all deleted, all kept. Any attempt to walk a line in the middle will result in only popular anti beliefs having logos. Imagine if this debate was running in the 1950s, do you think an anti-segregation.svg would survive for more than 5 minutes ? Megapixie 00:22, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
I think they must be kept when they are using in articles (We don't care about its using in users pages, that's project admins' job). If people agree with that, I'll refuse undeleting (As long as other deleted) If they don't agree, I really support undelete it..--OsamaK 10:58, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
Images to keep would then include Image:No_smoking_symbol.svg & Image:Rauchen Verboten.svg (similar images; used in "no smoking" articles); Image:Anti-Nazi-Symbol.svg & Image:Hakenkreuz im Verbotsschild.svg (similar images; used in punk and swastica articles ); all anti-copyright images such as Image:Anti-copyright.svg (heavily used on templates, etc).
I would also like to keep images that are not offensive to anyone: no point in deleting images no-one wants to delete! That's just stupid and would reflect badly on Commons. For example, Image:ThereIsNoCabal.svg and Image:Carlb-sockpuppet-01a.jpg might not be offensive to anyone. "Commons sense" should be applied. Can you agree with me?
I agree with most of Megapixie's comment, but not that these logos should be speedy deleted to avoid people coming and giving their opinion. Don't you think people will come and give their opinion if they are all suddenly speedy deleted? Perhaps we should direct them all to you ;)
It is better to include anti-logos in Commons:Project scope, saying specifically that images that are have no encyclopedic value and are also offensive -- such as certain anti-logos -- are not suitable for Commons. Once this has been done, I suggest to nominate the anti-logos one by one, and if people are offended by them then delete. Deletion requests are not votes, so if 50 people think something is not offensive but 10 people think it is offensive still means it IS offensive to a large group of people (1/5).
My last point here is that it is important to use good judgement. Perhaps someone will put the anti-Japan image on an anti-Japan article just to keep it. I hope that eventhough some people say "oh we can't judge what is encyclopedic", I appeal to your common sense about what is truly encyclopedic and what is original research. If you can't make the distinction please tell me and I will explain to you in detail, with examples.
Ok that is my suggestion and it is open for comments and revision....
Fred J (talk) 15:35, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm not quite sure what 'encyclopedic' has to do with the decision, this is Commons, not en:w :-). But I agree in so far as you mean that the images should be within the project scope and relevant to at least one of the wiki projects. If an anti-<insert your favourite country> logo has significant (or perhaps en:w 'notable') use, eg it is used by a large group of people in a public way (eg spray painted on walls through-out a region), the image obviously has some use in documenting things (most probably a conflict). A photograph of a graffitied wall might be more appropriate, but then there seems to be ridiculous concerns about violating the graffiti artist's copyright, so a diagrammatic representation (eg SVG) is appropriate. But we don't need to host a collection of 'anti' logos as a source of labels that people can plaster on things. --Tony Wills 23:03, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
If I may add my opinion (proper disclosure: I am Israeli), if this image was created or uploaded just for someone's userbox, then it should be deleted. Wikimedia projects have a policy of not supporting hatred or defamation. If this image shows an example of previously known anti-Israeli banner, and may be used in an article about Israel and its relations with other countries or communities, then it should stay.

 Not done no encyclopedic use at all. I will ad somthing about this in the scope. Basic reason for my decission: Its unenclypedic because its not an official Work. If for example a Organisation aggainst Israel or something like this would have made this to its Logo and its free, it would be okay, because then it could be used in Wikipedia articles or whatever.

You're complaining at the wrong place. You're talking about en:Mussie Lebassi at the English Wikipedia. The correct place to voice your concerns is at en:WP:DRV.

Someone then proposed it for deletion on January 29, 2007, and since nobody objected to that deletion, the article was deleted on February 5, 2007. That's more than a year ago...

(once a redirect to the category:Amulets) has been deleted per Commons:Project scope by User:ABF which is not applicable though. The scope defines the goals of Commons not defining how to organize the content.

User:ABF finds it unuseful (unsinnig) to perform such a redirect (source). Since I haven't found any regulation about it I find it a bit strange to state such a personal view rule. I have done such redirects not in a small quantity so I would like to have amulet undeleted unless a rule exists or can be cited. --Mattes 04:26, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

I don't think deleting it and citing 'project scope' is appropriate (seems to be an irrelevant reason), there is no reason a gallery called Amulet shouldn't exist. BUT redirecting galleries to categories is a waste of time: if you do not want to bother creating a gallery with a selection of useful images from the category, with captions for each photo, and ordered in some fashion, then the gallery adds no value. Just adding the word 'Amulet' to the category description is probably more useful. Equally deleting the redirected gallery is of very marginal value as well (why waste your time. is there nothing useful left on Commons that actually needs doing ;-) --Tony Wills 11:18, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
It is useful for users because they don't have to go use the search. What happens now after typing amulet is that you'll
  • find an empty page and you have to push the "Search for Amulet in Commons" button.
  • find 66 entries which are solely connections of image data to the category:
    • Image:Tartaria amulet.png
    • Image:Chinese amulet trigrammen.png
    • Image:Philippine mythology barnstar protection amulet.jpg
    • Image:Tartaria amulet retouched.PNG
    • Image:Buddhist amulet vending machine Zenkoji.jpg
    • Image:Amulet-pendant Louvre Sb2955.jpg
    • Image:Amulet-pendant Louvre Sb3906.jpg
    • and so on
Here, we're lucky that the first file is correctly attached to Category:Amulets so
  • the user is finally there where he wanted to go.

I mean we should "Keep it simple" or not?! A new user could be frustrated by that mess. It doesn't hurt nobody if a nonexisting gallery is redirecting to a category or vice versa. Mattes 11:35, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately the following images was deleted without any notice at my talk page or any discussion .

The images in Harikalar Diyari Public amusement park, Sincan, Ankara, are taken with FOP Law. Law No. 5846 of 5 December 1951, on Intellectual and Artistic Works, as last amended on 7 June 1995 by Law No. 4110, section 40, says: The duplication through illustrations, graphics, photographs, etc., promulgation, demonstration by projection at public places and broadcasting through radio and similar media of the works of fine arts stationarily placed on the public roads, streets and avenues are allowed. This authority is exclusive only to the outer shape in the works of architecture. Unless a prohibitory record is clearly placed on them by their owners, the works of fine arts can be demonstrated at public places by their possessors or by others upon their approval. The law has had a few more amendments since then, but I don't see any that changed that section.

Most amusement parks are privately owned in Turkey. But this spesific one is governmentally owned and can be entered "publicly", "freely", "without any charge", etc. Thus FOP applies here.

chi-ki children's charityEdit

please allow my file to be seen on wikipedia. i think there is a misunderstanding / mistake with licensing and i would like to know how to rectify this problem.

The deleted files of yours were actually not deleted because of licensing issues, but because they were out of the Project scope. They were deleted by Lupo because quote Out of project scope; promotional flyer for a charity. / Fred J (talk) 12:54, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Undeletion request for Nyoman Rudana and Musuem Rudana wiki projectsEdit

I as the uploader of all these pictures, would like to reupload these pictures for wikipedia projects :,

Some pictures which I don’t remember which ones, were uploaded in Wikipedia, under license GFDL, with permission of Nyoman Rudana as the founder of Museum Rudana but then there was a suggestion to upload them in Wikimedia Common so they can be used in different wiki projects. So I upload some other pics based on the discussion in talk page, but I found out that they need permissions of the creator ( is it the same as the photographer ? ) In my opinion, even the photographer cannot just upload the pictures without permission from Mr. Rudana, especially when he’s in most pictures. So I need advise and what kind of copyrights suitable for these pictures below.

1) . The copyrights of these pictures belong to Museum Rudana, and photographed by Nyoman Rudana, founder of the Museum. Can he reupload the pictures under GFDL self Should he reupload them through thorugh wikipedia or wikimedia common ?

PLAKAT RAM-1.jpg RAM Gate1.jpg RAM_gate.jpg

2) . These pictures below are photographed by the staff of Museum Rudana staff ( I forgot his name ), but he's actually doesn't own the copyright, he just took pictures. The copyright belongs to Mr. Rudana himself. I have discussed this matter with wiki admninistrator and he said that the creator of the oics ( which I assumed was the photographer ) owns the copyright and therefore I should ask his permission.

RUDANA-1.jpg Rudana&Wife.jpg Cornerstone-1.jpg Soeharto signed.jpg Blanco.jpg Upakarti Award.jpg Jiang Zemin at RAM.jpg Rudana&Daughters.jpg KSA2-Syiwa.jpg China Delegates.jpg Rudana& Sons1.jpg Earthquake-Yogya.JPG Book Launching.jpg Praying.jpg RUDANA-2.jpg RAM Cornerstone.jpg Kuwait Exhibition.jpg ITALY AWARD.jpg KSA-1.jpg KSA1-1999.jpg KSA-2.jpg RAM_map.jpg

If I want to reupload the pics, what should I do.

1. Should I ask the photographer's permission. If so, is this template email enough for the permission.

To permissions-commons I hereby assert that I am the creator and/or sole owner of the exclusive copyright of WORK [ insert link ]. I agree to publish that work under the free license GFDL / GNU from ]. I acknowledge that I grant anyone the right to use the work in a commercial product, and to modify it according to their needs. I am aware that I always retain copyright of my work, and retain the right to be attributed in accordance with the license chosen. Modifications others make to the work will not be attributed to me. I am aware that the free license only concerns copyright, and I reserve the option to take action against anyone who uses this work in a libelous way, or in violation of personality rights, trademark restrictions, etc. I acknowledge that I cannot withdraw this agreement, and that the image may or may not be kept permanently on a Wikimedia project. Bali, ……………

( Name of the photographer )

2. Can he reupload under GFDL –self , 3. Should he reupload through wikipedia or wikimedia common ?

3). This picture : RAM_logo.jpg are created by a designer, but the copyright belongs to Museum rudana. What kind of copyright is suitable for it ? I once upload it thorugh LOGO copyright, but still, it was deleted.

4). This picture : IPU2007.jpg, was taken during the IPU meeting May 2007 and taking by photographer who sold the picture to Mr. Rudana. So the picture belongs to Mr Rudana, and there's no way I could track the photographer to ask his permission. Please explain how I can upload this picture.

Thank you for your cooperation and please make a list of which picture can be reuploaded and which ones are not and why. There might be any other pictures which I haven't included and I will use your explanation as guidance for upcoming uploading.

This is a complex question and appears to be unanswered on this board.
You probably should seek larger community input, as a suggestion try the Commons:Village pump, Commons_talk:Licensing or the Commons:Help desk.

Image:The sexiest woman in the Roosevelt hotel.jpgEdit

Now one cannot take a picture of the Roosevelt Hotel just because someone painted directly on it? From COM:FOP#USA:"Anyone may take photographs of buildings from public places. The photographer holds the exclusive copyright to such an image (the architect or owner of the building has no say whatsoever), and may publish the image in any way." By drawing over the building, over the fire escape and such, it is part of the building. This photograph is allowed under US law. -Nard 00:51, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

The painting is not permanent and therefore the image does not fall under FOP. See also deletion request 哦,是吗?(O-person) 03:36, 09 January 2008 (GMT)

I would like my file undeleted because I believe that it is showing something which rarely comes up in your website.

Image:Fotografía oficial del gabinete de Michelle Bachelet, 18-09-2007.jpgEdit

The image was deleted in this request because it was without licence. The image was with the {{Copyrighted free use}} tag but when was nominated for deletion, the user removed the licence tag. The licence was valid as you can see in this deletion request made by the same user where the image from the same source was finally kept. I hope you can restore the image because it's really important and it was deleted because of a mistake --B1mbo 16:10, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Unless derivative works and commercial use is explicitly allowed, we can't have the media here. 哦, 是吗?(User:O) 02:16, 15 December 2007 (GMT)
The website of the Chilean Government (the source of the image) says, "Se autoriza su reproducción y uso citando fuente", which means "Use and reproduction authorized if the source is cited". I'll e-mail them and see if this includes derivative works and commercial use. --Boricuæddie 13:30, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:Tokaido15 Kanbara.jpgEdit

The image Image:Tokaido15 Kanbara.jpg was deleted because it is claimed to be a duplicate of Image:Hiroshige nuit de neige à Kambara.JPG. The pictures are the same, but Tokaido15 Kanbara.jpg is a better version because it is labeled as a series with all the other pictures in the set and is easier to understand. Douggers 02:35, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Please link to things for the convenience of other readers, don't just give image names, those require quite a bit more work to follow and review. I have taken the liberty of changing the referenced images in your remarks to links (without changing anything else). I am not sure I follow your reasoning. What do you mean by "labeled as a series" and "easier to understand" I looked at the last deleted revision and I didn't see anything in the information that explained anything. You can always modify the information on the other image to add linking and explanatory information if you want. ++Lar: t/c 00:07, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
There appears to be a set of images see Category:Tōkaidō gojusan tsugi, labeled Tokaidonn+_xxxx.jpg, this was the 15th of the set.

Deleted at the deletion request due to being "derivative" of a copyrighted photo. Derivative of which one? this one, copyrighted under the GFDL? I cannot find any photos of him anything more than passingly similar to this painting, which is also found on[4]. I did find [5] and [6] but these do not bear any more resemblance to this painting besides his hair waving in the air. -Nard 23:45, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
