Template talk:BollywoodHungama

(Redirected from Template talk:Cc-by-3.0-BollywoodHungama)


There is a discussion here [1] regarding how to verify uploads. It has NOT yet been decided to delete images after seven days so do not worry :-) --MGA73 (talk) 21:41, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

I removed the "It will be deleted within seven days if not done so." so we do not make someone panic or risk that admins start to delete the images. --MGA73 (talk) 21:43, 29 July 2010 (UTC)


New template created for IndiaFM images please check it Template:IndiaFMreview.

Why? Old one works with license reviewer script [2]. --MGA73 (talk) 15:39, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Normally when we review files we just add a new template saying that file is reviewed. On these files the review template is build in the license template. That is done to make sure, that all files uploaded with the license template will be reviewed.

So far the review was done by adding a "|status=confirmed|reviewer=<name>" to the {{Cc-by-3.0-IndiaFM}}. That could make the review hard for new reviewers. Also there is no option to fail files other than mark them as a copyvio or with a "no permission".

User:Dpkpm007 introduced a new template {{IndiaFMreview}} to be used (to replace the other one I asume). Most of it looked ok but is still talked about "Flickr" and "the license". If we are to change the system I suggest we start with a discussion if we want one template to include both the source, the license and the review, or we want the review to be in a separate template (so reviewed files have 2 templates).

If we only want one template I suggest we use the old name that is mentioned in the OTRS. --MGA73 (talk) 16:21, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Unclear wordingEdit

"Don't just upload any images from there and put this license on it - please check before you upload." <- Check what? Or with whom? --Bensin (talk) 22:52, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Link collectionEdit

Serious issueEdit

Previous day I've successfully tagged File:Filming of Rockstar film.jpg for speedy deletion and today File:Filming of Barfi!.jpg this one. Now its even more concerning because these two were reviewed by in my opinion by one of the most trusted Indian OTRS members, Sreejith K and Dharmadhyaksha and went unnoticed for a year. I would advise new users to use caution while uploading such files, more so if they are from film sets. Such copyright-infringement is not expected from BollywoodHungama.

Unclear templateEdit

The template lists some examples of images which can be uploaded. Is the list meant to state that anything which is © Bollywood Hungama is OK whereas anything which is © someone else isn't OK? w:File:Bollywoodhungamalogo.png doesn't match the examples in the template, but it is obvious that Bollywood Hungama is the copyright holder. Does the licence cover that image? --Stefan4 (talk) 20:49, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

No, I don't think so. Bollywood Hungama has not given a blanket CC-BY license to all of their copyrighted works; I haven't seen the ticket myself, but from what I've been told it only applies to photos taken by their own photographers at Bollywood Hungama parties/events. I'd be very surprised if their branding IP was included. —RP88 17:00, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

On the set picsEdit

Does this license allow on the set pics? Found a number of on the set pics which were deleted but later on undeleted. See here under heading Bollywood Hungama "film sets" images. Boseritwik (talk) 08:13, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes. Or else they wouldn't have been undeleted. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 04:37, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
Do read section Serious Issue posted above User:Dharmadhyaksha.Boseritwik (talk) 05:23, 20 March 2014 (UTC)


As worded, this template would make an image unacceptable to Commons:

"[The image] is provided with a direct link to the source on the Bollywood Hungama website."

That says that if BH takes an image off its web site, as it has done recently for some Commons images, we can no longer keep it. That, effectively, would make the license revocable, which we do not allow.

Fortunately, the OTRS ticket which is the basis for this template does not have this requirement, so I think we can simply remove it. I will do so unless someone objects. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:20, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

(Jameslwoodward), what I understand is that the image has a free license if those 5 conditions are met at the time of license review. It don't care whether the link is dead or alive after that, as in all our license reviewed files. Jee 11:41, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
Jee, the CC-BY license requires attribution in a reasonable manner, but does not require anything else. So even if the copyright holder had asked for this, they can't have both a CC-BY license and require this link. With that said, I see nothing in the OTRS ticket which has this requirement -- although, I will admit that the ticket is a bit of a mess and I may have missed it. .     Jim . . . .

Datestamp missingEdit

Using the syntax instructed at Category:Unreviewed files from Bollywood Hungama:


the template hands off to {{Cc-by-3.0-BollywoodHungama/confirmed|~~~}}, which yields:

The message says "on that date", but there is no datestamp visible--use of three tildes inserts my username only. Should the instructions say |reviewer=~~~~, where four tildes yields:

Or should {{Cc-by-3.0-BollywoodHungama}} have a separate |date=~~~~~ field for five tildes (or auto-populated by {{subst:CURRENTYEAR}}-{{subst:CURRENTMONTH}}-{{subst:CURRENTDAY2}}), which is then passed to {{Cc-by-3.0-BollywoodHungama/confirmed}}? DMacks (talk) 08:53, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

If you use the script to review them, it creates the second version. The instructions are probably wrong, but the wording is itself ugly. Reventtalk 00:04, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
