Kindly check deeply the request.

I understand the no censor in wikipedia. I think it's neutral if there're no pictures in the article prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and i request to removed the pictures.

Here is my reason. firstly, the privacy in photograph is also applied in drawing in the link i provided below, when the illustrator or photographer has no right or permission to illustrate therefore it is illegal. privacy right and the link i provided below.

Secondly, the issue that includes moral issue of illustrating. it stated in the link below. Moral issues Not all legally obtained photographs of individuals are acceptable. The following types of image are normally considered unacceptable: Those that unfairly demean or ridicule the subject Those that are unfairly obtained Those that unreasonably intrude into the subject's private or family life These are categories which are matters of common decency rather than law. They find a reflection in the wording of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 12: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Wikipedia:Image_use_policy.

according to islamic belief, in islamic history and history, all prophets in Islam never gives permission to any human being to illustrate them and never wants to illustrate them. they have the right not to show or depict their appearance. Kindly respect my request. Thank you. Trysandclean (talk) 02:32, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

media file repository

there should be a very short intro in that page, what Commons is about. One sentence is enough. Newcomers don't know what Commons is about. Commons:Welcome could be placed there. -- 10:23, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Can we expect a decision on un-deletion soon?

A large number of files, essentially photos and scans, were nominated for deletion since 29 September 2015. One of the reasons given was "not own work of uploader although it is all labeled own work." Since then, you have acknowledged that, indeed, I am the owner of all photos myself or that they are taken as a "work for hire"

People have called my office requesting to use this image in a Wikipedia article about me. --Mlaucke (talk) 05:27, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Make a link to Commons:Media by Time?( ▶ By time )

Hi, since a few years I help to start Calendar-date-Categories, boxes for photos or put them inside (add Cat's). But it is a hidden project (others work there too), if there is no Link from the Main Page up to e.g. October 2015. Many direct links from the Main Page are not a good idea, I think: So I have started a Page between, Commons:Media By time. Only 1 Link is necessary now, additional to "by location", "by type", "by author", "by licence", "by source": ▶  By time. Is it possible to make that Link? --LudwigSebastianMicheler (talk) 00:52, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Media of the Day

(before destruction in 2015 by barbarians from ISIL) - I am questioning the use of barbarians. It is clearly pejorative and is not NPOV. --Kiltpin (talk) 11:34, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Right, we don't need that, even if we agree. Yann (talk) 20:21, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
