Tagging copyvios

Hi, When tagging copyright violations, please inform the uploader. This is best done using the gagdet. See in your preferences to enable them, tab "Gadget", section "Maintenance tools" : "AjaxQuickDelete" and "Quick delete". These add links in the left column (or right column for Hebrew, Arabic, etc., language interface). Regards, Yann (talk) 07:11, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

@Yann: But what should I do if there are multiple copyright violations occured? (Like this time, about 20 of them were found) Are there any templates were for multiple copyright violations? I don't want to cause serious annoyance to the uploader, thank you.廣九直通車 (talk) 07:18, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes. Create a mass deletion request with COM:VFC. When uploading copyvios, the uploader is creating annoyance, not you. Thanks, Yann (talk) 07:23, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
Thx!廣九直通車 (talk) 07:32, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Speedy Deleted Content

@廣九直通車 How can I get it published in my article? Suggest me a solution because that newspaper picture is from an event organised by company. Thanks, @aviraj.gupta3

@Aviraj.gupta3:First, I have to remind you that fair use is NOT allowed on Wikimedia Commons (See:COM:FU). If you find the file is useful on an Wikipedia article, please upload it separately on your language's Wikipedia, thanks.廣九直通車 (talk) 08:30, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Spamming at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Vandalism

Stop posting blatantly off-topical messages to the noticeboard. Yet another such fake “vandalism report” as this, and I start a request for your topic-ban from Commons:Vandalism. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:17, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

@Incnis Mrsi:You mean that the user is actually not vandalising Wikimedia Commons? Another lesson for me, sorry about that. However, as he really did spamming, and what he spams are computer hacking (which is very likely illegal), I think there is a need to notify admins.廣九直通車 (talk) 07:34, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
No, I didn’t see what Ruiz_Cuellar_1 uploaded, and expect it to have bad license, not to be spamming. But I see that the noticeboard looks spammed after you poured every first grievance to it, vandalism or something completely unrelated. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:43, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
But the user who was involved in uploading unfree files after deletion warning and uploading deleted files. Moreover, the user also misused public domain tags in order to cover those unfree files, which is a violation of COM:LL, and I'm not reporting the user without reason. Anyway, perhaps I would be more careful in such situations. Thank you.廣九直通車 (talk) 10:05, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

您好,想請教閣下一個問題,關於Geograph網站上的這張圖片[1]版權是以CC BY-SA 2.0發布的,請問能否將其上傳至共享資源?若可以,那該以什麼樣的模板來標示?(如來自Flickr網站的圖片會使用Template:Flickrreview)謝謝。--一群貓 (talk) 08:47, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

@一群貓:啊,其實你上傳的照片其實本來沒有問題。但因為你上傳的照片是一些在美國(加利福利亞州聖地牙哥市)的雕塑,而美國版權法律規定藝術品的創作者是有版權的,所以即使那些照片是Filckr用戶以CC-BY-SA-2.0批准的,雕塑的原作者仍然可以追究版權,因此不能在共享。詳情可以參見COM:FOP,謝謝。廣九直通車 (talk) 09:44, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
上面是搞錯的回應,這次的圖片沒問題!這張圖片是在英國北愛爾蘭貝爾法斯特拍的,而英國允許FOP,再加上圖片以自由授權發布,因此沒有版權問題。至於模板的話請用Template:cc-by-sa-2.0,再加上Template: licensereview,通知管理員/審查員檢查就行了,謝謝。廣九直通車 (talk) 09:50, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi there, You tagged this particular piece as it does not have evidence of permission, yet the link I posted on said file clearly shows that the image in question is under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License. Therefore, as per the alert on the image, I provided a link to a site (in this case, deviantart) with an explicit release under a free license, and so the image should not have been flagged in this manner. Of course, unless you want me to also have the authour of the image send you a declaration of consent even though this is not needed (as per the flag message) as the image is under a creative commons license.

Category:Police automobiles in China by provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions

This category name is kind of complicated. Would it be OK if it were changed to Category:Police automobiles in China by location? --Auntof6 (talk) 06:57, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

@Auntof6:Thank you for your suggestion. I once considered to name the category as Category:Police automobiles in China by provinces. But unlike the United States (which other child categories can be organized by the 50 states), China has 4 municipalities and 4 autonomous regions. What about Category:Police automobiles in China by provincial-level administrative divisions? Of course, if you have other better ideas, please change the category name.廣九直通車 (talk) 09:46, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

@MusicmanFive:Thank you for your inquiry. The reason why your file is deleted can be seen on the deleted file page, the reason is also mentioned on your user page. As you seem to be quite confused, I would like to explain to you again.
The file you uploaded is in fact copyrighted by the original author of the album's cover art, and very unlikely to be unfree, which means that the file has restriction imposed on the usage (eg. commercial usage, derivative work). Though it is possible to breach these conditons though fair use, Wikimedia Commons does not accept fair use. Your file is therefore recommended to be uploaded to English Wikipedia if you are sure that it adheres with English Wikipedia's policy on fair use. If you have any other questions about the file, please feel free to ask me here under the same subtopic, thank you.廣九直通車 (talk) 12:41, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

閣下您好!抱歉打擾了。最近我在中文維基寫條目時使用到了這張共享資源的圖片[2](應是《zh:羅佛蘭登》一書的俄語版封面),早已在2008年就被人上傳共享資源,但我一直對這張圖片的授權存疑:因為《羅佛蘭登》此書是1997年才出英文版的,俄語版則是在這之後,版權不可能過期,也很難想像出版方會對他們的書籍封面作cc授權。可否請閣下在有空時幫忙查看一下這張圖片是否有侵權之嫌呢?謝謝!--一群貓 (talk) 04:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

The problem is not “typing”, but low-quality software not tasked for escaping forbidden characters. Later versions, as far as I remember, replaced such characters with hyphen-minus instead of truncation. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:36, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

@Incnis Mrsi:Thank you for your comment. What I mean for "typing problem" is that the uploader may uploaded the file without completing the title. I made this guess because "la" is a frequent used word in Spanish (I do not know Spanish, but I have seen some Spanish texts). Anyways, I think the issue should not affect the rename request. If I made a mistake, please tell me, thank you.廣九直通車 (talk) 09:42, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Section resolved

Hello, please, do only add the template {{Section resolved}} to threads where the thread opener added a reaction like a thank you (or you yourself have been the thread opener). Sometimes there is a reaction after a longer hiatus, or even without a reaction the thread opener may not that often be active in Commons. Also, please, add this template to the end of a thread. For short threads this may not matter, but for a longer thread the template is too easily overlooked if added to the top. — Speravir – 21:04, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

@Speravir:Thank you for your kind reminder!廣九直通車 (talk) 08:35, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
Just after writing this I acted against my suggestion.   I had noticed that a user followed my advices, but did not leave a message in the thread he had opened. This is, of course, another case for setting the template. — Speravir – 20:10, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Missing source info

Why did you tag files by Ton1-bot as source unknown, rather than adding {{Own}}? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 16:19, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

I've fixed them for you. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 17:03, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
@Mike Peel:Then I advise you to revert all of them. According to the original file pages, all of those files have no author information (such as [3] and [4]). You actually made a assumption without evidence that all of the files uploaded by User:Ton1-bot are from User:Ton1~commonswiki. I knew that if I just revert them all ruthlessly, then perhaps it would be the largest scale of edit war on Commons, so I would like to reach a solution with you, or know if there is any mistakes with my edits.廣九直通車 (talk) 00:49, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
These files were uploaded in 2006, before templates like {{Own}} existed, and before the information template was expected to always be used. The files uploaded through the "bot" are from the same events as those uploaded with the main account, at least one of which (File:Toots in Ris Orangis France June 2006-1.jpg) was manually marked as own work. So it seems a reasonable assumption to me. If you disagree, then please start a deletion discussion so that we can get other editor's input. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 07:23, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
@Mike Peel:Thank you for your comment, but did you noticed that the image is not uploaded by User:Ton1-bot? Anyways, I listed all files uploaded by User:Ton1-bot on Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Ton1-bot, please have a look.廣九直通車 (talk) 08:37, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi 廣九直通車

I'v sent emails including the original/ negative of the photos to the OTRS which will prove to you all that i'm the only and solo creator, and thank you for your great time, cheers, and have a very beautiful sunny day. Femmesrouges (talk) 16:55, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Regarding the evidence you provided, they will be reviewed, and we will make our decision based on your evidence given. Please feel free to ask me if you have any question, thank you.廣九直通車 (talk) 05:14, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@ 廣九直通車 , thank you, I have received many emails and also I'v sent many many replies with lots and lots of files and moreover it was a bit strange yesterday that I was asked to prove that my photos are my photos, and otherwise I want to tell you something, I became a bit confused why should anyone upload other-one photos? what would he/she gain from that. I guess the opposite is the more logical one, every photographer would like to upload his/her photos for many purposes! Femmesrouges (talk) 05:25, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@Femmesrouges:Thank you for your question. I acknowledge your eagerness to upload your works. However it should be mentioned that we need concrete source and copyright information on all of our works, as Wikimedia Commons treats copyright strictly, and often, we receive problematic emails claiming themselves as the author, such as users who mistaken the OTRS procedure (Just to mention that I have also sent such emails once when I did not know how OTRS works, which of course, was identified and corrected by another volunteer). As we would not know how the author or copyright owner will react to any unauthorized hosting of their media files, we OTRS volunteers are instructed to be careful when working on every email. After all, it should be guaranteed that your images can be hosted on us Wikimedia Commons, provided that you can provide sufficient information. Anyways, I look for your reply, and your images being used on various Wikimedia projects and other places. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, thank you.廣九直通車 (talk) 13:48, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@廣九直通車, 廣九直通車: Thank you, you are a true gentleman, and of-course if I have any questions I will feel free to contact you because you are a very kind-person, as you spoke to me like a true gentleman, thank you again, cheers to you and all gentleman like you form beautiful China.

Guten Tag,

ich habe mir einen Account erstellt, zu einem Artikel von Bekannten zwei Bilder hochgeladen, wurden vom System auch als OK befunden, nun steht die Prüfung bzw. Freigaben noch aus, damit diese Änderung jeder sehen kann. Diese müsste allerdings schnell geschehen, da ich dies für einen Geburtstag gemacht habe.

Ich bitte um Hilfe und vielen Dank im Voraus.

@Assistenz.GF:Thank you for your question. As I cannot understand German, could you repeat your question in English again? Alternatively, I have requested for German translation on COM:HD#German Translation required. Translation should be provided after some time, regards.廣九直通車 (talk) 05:14, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
Hallo Assistenz.GF, ich habe den Artikel als gesichtet markiert, damit sind die Fotos jetzt sichtbar. Aber die Fotos selbst könnten evtl. gelöscht werden, denn sie sehen aus wie Scans oder abfotografierte Fotos. Damit sind sie keine "eigenen" Fotos (es sei denn, du hast sie tatsächlich selbst fotografiert und dann gescannt). Insofern haut source={{own}} nicht hin. Mit "author" ist der Fotograf des Originals gemeint (wenn unbekannt, ginge auch author={{unknown|author}}), und mit "source" ist gemeint, wo das Foto herkommt, es ist ja nicht vom Himmel gefallen. Wenn der Fotograf des Originals nicht schon 70 Jahre tot ist (wovon ich mal ausgehe), dann muss er (oder seine Erben) eine Einverständniserklärung abgeben, oder aber das Foto ist schon veröffentlicht (Print, Web) und darf frei weiterverwendet werden. Da kann ich jetzt leider nicht garantieren, dass die Fotos bis zum Geburtstag hier stehenbleiben. Gruß, --Achim (talk) 08:09, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
