filenames too long

Abigor, please have a look at this page: [1]

There are several filenames that are way too long. Can something be done about it? Citypeek (talk) 09:23, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Image:Amherst College Main Quad.jpg

Hello, I would like to know why this image was deleted? It is my own original work that I added to the Amherst College page myself. Dsem (talk) 23:26, 7 March 2010 (UTC)


Image - not sure if anyone will call it qi due to the tilt but it is a very effective shot indeed. Hope all is good :) --Herby talk thyme 10:47, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

thank you herby :-)
I made the decision to use the tilt but I know some people here on Commons don't like it but most of my pictures are made for my own site and there is it high profile with 100 vieuws a day :D Huib talk 10:51, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Yes I understand - I find some of my images not quite "right" for Commons but I really like that one! Regards --Herby talk thyme 11:06, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Nice (bis)

Marvellous ! I went to this page for expressing exactly the same comment about the same photo. I like the tilt, especially "this" tilt. For me, very impressive shot indeed (I like that the close up with only this anonymous "ein deutscher Soldat"). Tank U. Even your images are not "quite right" for "Commons". D'you know what ? Most of mine are not quite right for...nothing and nowhere.--Jebulon (talk) 14:07, 21 March 2010 (UTC) Post scriptum: does your girlfriend have a sister   ?

Deletion of File:Dutch 1 gulden front.JPG / Verwijdering van File:Dutch 1 gulden front.JPG

Hi/Hoi Abigor,

I noticed that you deleted File:Dutch 1 gulden front.JPG on the basis of this request: Commons:Deletion requests/Banknotes of The Netherlands by Mvllez. However, that discussion only mentions benknotes as issued by De Nederlandsche Bank (legally a private entity and not the state) which are indeed copyrighted. The 1 guilder note you deleted, was a "muntbiljet", nl:Muntbiljet, issued by the Dutch State directly as a replacement for coins. As such, it might be subject to article 15b of the Auteurswet, which states that literary, scholarly or artistic works, published by or on behalf of the government may be reproduced (but I'm not sure about derivative works ans reusing/mixing). I'm thinking of putting up an undeletion request for this file, but I just thought I should let you know. Let me know if you have any thoughts about this.

Ik zag dat je File:Dutch 1 gulden front.JPG hebt verwijderd op grond van dit verzoek: Commons:Deletion requests/Banknotes of The Netherlands by Mvllez. Dat verzoek behelst echter alleen bankbiljetten die zijn uitgegeven door De Nederlandsche Bank (formeel een particuliere instelling) en die zijn inderdaad auteursrechtelijk beschermd. Het 1-guldenbiljet dat je ook hebt verwijderd, is echter een nl:muntbiljet, dat rechtstreeks door de Staat der Nederlanden is uitgegeven als (tijdelijke) vervanging voor munten. Het zou daarmee onder artikel 15b van de Auteurswet kunnen vallen, dat stelt dat werken van letterkunde, wetenschap of kunst die door of vanwege de openbare macht worden gepubliceerd, mogen worden verspreid en gekopieerd (hoewel ik niet zeker weet hoe dat zit met afgeleide werken en hergebruik). Ik overweeg een verzoek tot terugplaatsen te doen, maar vond het wel netjes je dat even te laten weten. Laat het me weten (hier of op nl:) als je hier nog opmerkingen over hebt.
