Hello Ahunt!

Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. EugeneZelenko 16:43, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the info! - Ahunt 21:08, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Ahunt!

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Environment CanadaEdit

Hi, just been adding some categorization to Canadian government aircraft. I think I figured out the relationships and roles of Nav Canada and Transport Canada, that come under Government of Canada, but puzzled by Environment Canada and Department of National Defence coming under Federal Government of Canada. Perhaps a bit too subtle for non-Canucks, but perhaps you could have a quick check to see if the category trees are indeed correct, MTIA.PeterWD (talk) 11:15, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Yeah that can be pretty confusing. For one thing Nav Canada is a private company and not government at all. - Ahunt (talk) 13:17, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Frola imagesEdit

Hi, just a few comments about images of Sadler Vampire and Stolp Starlet recently. They are just two of many hundreds of files prefixed "Frola" followed by groups of numerals. I didn't rename them at the time of assigning aircraft model/type to the images. That was partly because there are so many to deal with, and partly because the numbers might have significance for future categorising. For example, images are often uploaded in groups that have parameters in common, such as date and/or location. In the real world, as a full-time archivist, I place high importance on cataloguing negs and slides with locations and dates. Those can often be discovered via context such as background, nearby aircraft, buildings, weather conditions, etc, and I even sometimes remove slides from their mounts to help link them with others. At Commons, I have often used 'upload' numbers (those in brackets) similar to each other to assign the same location or event category to many images. Here, the name "Frola" can be safely removed, because it is embodied in the file information, but the numbers could prove useful. It takes a lot more effort to chase each redirect individually, or the Flickr link (often unproductive). So, I respectfully ask if you can bear all this in mind when renaming files. MTIA, PeterWD (talk) 15:07, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your note here. I just proposed the file names, I didn't do the renaming as I don't have those privileges here. As anyone can propose renaming, so it may better sense if you propose your own renaming to preserve some sort of index system while complying with Common's requirement that file names be descriptive. - Ahunt (talk) 20:01, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

File:NC37905 July 1991.pngEdit

 
File:NC37905 July 1991.png has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.

Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

You rang?Edit

Is there some problem for which you need an admin? If so, please leave me a message telling me what it's about and I can help. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:55, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ellin: Great to hear from you. I mostly work on en.wikipedia, but do a bit of stuff here on commons as well. I recently found a Google Chrome screenshot here on Commons that a user had uploaded under a CC licence. Google Chrome is proprietary software issued under Google's Terms of Service, so screenshots cannot be uploaded under free licences. I tagged it as a copyright vio and it was deleted. I checked Category:Screenshots of Google Chrome and found many more screenshots of Chrome that had been uploaded under the wrong licences. As a test I tagged three of them File:Bcxfu75k exa.JPG, File:Aw, Snap!.png and File:Bug de pagebanner en Google Chrome.PNG as copyright vios and another user removed the tags and indicated they were under BSD licenses. I have reinstated the tags and left the other user a note to please let an admin assess these for deletion. A lot of people confuse Google Chrome with Chromium. Chromium is the base project for Chrome and is under a series of free licences, including BSD. Google takes the Chromium code, adds proprietary components and copyrighted logos and produces Chrome under the Google Terms of Service, a proprietary licence. This means that all screenshots of Chrome are proprietary and none are eligible for any free licences. Basically all the screenshots at Category:Screenshots of Google Chrome, need to be removed from Commons as they are all copyright violations. You can confirm all this information on the en.wikipedia article on Chrome. If you have any questions about this please do ask! Let's get this solved! - Ahunt (talk) 16:14, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Hiya! I'd like to suggest that a few of these be nominated for deletion as a "trial balloon" and see the discussion generated. Then based on that discussion (most likely "vd"), we can batch out the rest. Would you be interested in doing a Lengthy Deletion Nomination on one or two images saying what you have above? When they go to speedy, there is less discussion and less paper trail leaving it possible for that user to do what they did which was take the tags off without notice. If you need help with the DN, let me know, for example I could start it and you could comment right away with the details. Whatever works, just let me know. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:37, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick response! I do lots of AfD work on en.wikipedia, but have only done speedies here on Commons and I am not that familiar with the process here, so that would be great if you would like to get the ball rolling and I can provide the background as explained above. - Ahunt (talk) 16:41, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Please pick one of the most egregious images from the category and I'll be happy to DN it. Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:47, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
It is not in English, but this one I already tagged shows the whole browser window and has a really ridiculous mess of licences added that looks like some attempt to shotgun it with every free license the uploader could think of File:Bcxfu75k exa.JPG. - Ahunt (talk) 16:53, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Ok, nommmed... see Commons:Deletion requests/File:Bcxfu75k exa.JPG. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:55, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Re:Google Chrome screenshotsEdit

Before continuing the discussion, see Commons:Deletion_requests/Google_Chrome_screenshots, this was already discussed, and Community consensus is clear. The Google Chrome binaries are covered by the Google EULA, but the UI interface is part of the Chromium source code (you will notice that the Google Chrome and Chromium interfaces are exactly the same), therefore, the screenshots are covered under the Chromium license, the BSD. Please don't retag the files again, or I'll repor you to the COM:ANU. --Amitie 10g (talk) 17:58, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Well thanks for bringing that up, but the conclusions that were arrived at there are not in accordance with the licensing for the software and so the conclusion is wrong. The Chromium binaries are free software, but Chrome is not Chromium, it has added proprietary components and is under a proprietary license. No need to threaten me, this has gone for discussion as noted above. - Ahunt (talk) 18:04, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
No, and again, the EULA covers only the binaries and propietary elements included in Google Chrome binaries, but not the UI, that is part of Chromoum, that is covered under the BSD (Google Chrome is a version of Chromium with some propietary elements). This was already discussed several times and there is already Community concensus about the Google Chrome screenshots. --Amitie 10g (talk) 18:15, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Sorry but you are just wrong in that regard. I have provided new information in the discussion. Please take it there. - Ahunt (talk) 18:19, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Source of derivative work is not properly indicated: File:Ubuntu 17.04 English.pngEdit

Català | Deutsch | English | فارسی | 日本語 | Русский | Slovenščina | Tiếng Việt | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−
 
This media may be deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Ubuntu 17.04 English.png, is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such works would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a map that has been altered from the original. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the description page states who made this derivative work, it currently doesn't specify who created the original work, so the overall copyright status is unclear. If you did not create the original work depicted in this image, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

Please edit the file description and add the missing information, or the file may be deleted. If you created the original content yourself, enter this information as the source. If someone else created the content, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so. Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

Note: If your claim of GPLv2+ is correct, then you must also distribute the complete corresponding source code under terms of GPLv2 section 3 or or convey the CS under GPLv3 section 6. If the license you've stated in the file description is incorrect, please fix it. ISO file is not enough to satisfy the source for verifiability, and most likely the ISO file you refer to is a binary distribution and not the source code distribution. Please see Commons:Screenshots. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 09:46, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Please also specify the name of screenshot photographer, if known. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 09:48, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
    •   Fixed - Ahunt (talk) 11:55, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
      • Please read what I wrote about conveying the source code. This has not yet been done: The copyright and conditions of the underlying work must also be considered. More information is needed or the file may be deleted. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 12:17, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
        •   Fixed - Ahunt (talk) 12:23, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
          • Sorry for the lengthy discussion, but thank you so far for helping with this issue. Are you sure that's the corresponding source code distribution?

            “The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable.”

            — GNU General Public License, version 2

“The “Corresponding Source” for a work in object code form means all the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to control those activities.”

— GNU General Public License, version 3

Instead of the binary ISO images, I found http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/17.04/release/source/ – is this the corresponding source? If you can also instruct where/how to retrieve the wallpaper and what license it's under, that'd be great! If the wallpaper is free and not already on Commons, consider uploading it. Thanks! 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 12:41, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

If the wallpaper is in ubuntu-wallpapers package in Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty, the copyright of ubuntu-wallpapers package (the wallpaper) must also be respected. The majority are under CC BY-SA 3.0 in that package, with few under CC BY-SA 2.0 or CC0 licenses. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 12:49, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

  • It looks like you have located all the source code files for the software and the many user-supplied wallpapers as well there. As I understand the default wallpaper is not listed there, but is under the general licence for the source code. - Ahunt (talk) 12:59, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
  • I found it in ubuntu-wallpapers, it's called warty-final-ubuntu.png and seems to be licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 according to the copyright info of the package. That leaves me with a question if there are any copyrightable GPLv2+ elements remaining to be depicted in the screenshot. The CC BY-SA 3.0 license is currently not indicated in the file description. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 13:04, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
    • Good find, please do feel free to add that licence then. - Ahunt (talk) 13:06, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
      • There's a problem: Unless you're the copyright holder of all works depicted, it's hard to "promise" to distribute under {{GPLv2+}} and {{CC BY-SA 3.0}} at the same time: Those two copyleft licenses are incompatible, and derivative works cannot be distributed in the same work without violating the license of one another. See {{Incompatible license}}. If you don't mind, this would be the best to nominate at Commons:Deletion requests, because neither of us seem to be certain what's actually in the screenshot. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 13:13, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

We have identified all the licences involved, so there is no need to nominate this for deletion. Sorting out licences is not what deletion requests are for. The screenshot is distributed under its licence and the software under its licence. No element is under both, so there are no incompatible licenses. - Ahunt (talk) 13:33, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Okay, now I'm feeling real frustrated. Arguably I didn't really want to spend this much time on the issue because the burden of proof is not generally on me, but you fellow uploader. I'm upset, real upset how this concern was handled.

    I disagree. I have not identified all the elements yet. There's icons with at least {{PD-textlogo}}, {{MPL2}}, {{CC BY-SA 3.0}} and I'm still unsure what else there is – not considering de minimis. Can you help me with that?

    Know that the screenshot is an adapted work, and must be conveyed as a whole under CC BY-SA 3.0, GPLv2+ or whatever the underlying works require.

    Including CC BY-SA 3.0 section 4(a) restriction, must include a copy of, or the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for, this License with every copy of the Work You Distribute or Publicly Perform, which has not been done yet. I could do that, but then I also have to add {{Disputed}}, {{Wrong license}} or {{Incompatible license}} because there's no way I'm going to touch the GPLv2+ license tag without your consent, for my own legal good.

    I'm not sure if you're insisting on GPLv2+ only for redistribution here, because if so it'd violate the wallpaper license – unless you are the author/copyright holder of the wallpaper itself of course, and I highly doubt this. In that case, the licensee would be left with no legal way to redistribute the file because of incompatible licenses.

    I'm also feeling like your latest argument confuses the distribution of aggregated works and adapted (derived) works. The screenshot is a derivative work, the CD image/corresponding source distribution is an aggregated work. Incompatible licenses can be conveyed as aggregated works on the same storage medium, but not in the same derivative work. I'm having real difficulty understanding what you mean with The screenshot is distributed under its licence and the software under its licence. No element is under both, so there are no incompatible licenses.

    I need a break to calm down. I feel like you've asked me to violate someone's copyright, that's not nice. Please do the right thing, in a less obscure way. (I suggest dropping the GPLv2+ if there's no other GPL'd elements, and going with CC BY-SA.) And could you please elaborate? 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 14:27, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

For a train of thought, this is how I became frustrated:

  • I was believed the screenshot was under GPLv2+ only. No source was conveyed under GPLv2 section 3 or GPLv3 section 6, as expected from a GPL distribution.
  • I asked for the corresponding source, repeatedly. I didn't get it. I tried to make it clear with corresponding source and complete corresponding source, but only received corresponding binaries in response.
  • (I questioned silently with myself if you were aware about the GPLv2+ license conditions.)
  • I had to start looking for a source myself, to confirm with you if I had found the corresponding source for reuse. At this point I suspected a GPL copyright violation, but persisted.
  • You hinted(?) the wallpaper was under some GPL license. I had to prove you otherwise (reverse burden of proof).
  • You acknowledged it was under CC BY-SA 3.0, but didn't act upon it and asked me to handle the situation (burden of proof?).
  • Already feeling not well treated and nearly committed a CC BY-SA 3.0 copyright infringement myself...

Something something. Break time. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 14:50, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Also know that I'm real afraid of adding {{CC BY-SA 3.0}} myself, as it would likely violate your {{GPLv2+}} tag. Hence the suggestion to nominate for deletion. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 14:55, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

  • And that's why we're talking here. 2001:2003:54FA:2F79:0:0:0:1 14:58, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
    • Sorry, but I really have no clue what you are on about here. Perhaps you can ask someone else to look at this? - Ahunt (talk) 00:07, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Consider adding iw links here on commonsEdit

Dear Ahunt,

Thanks for creating new categories here on Commons as you did recently for Category:Italian Rotors Industries. It would be great if you could as well add the interwiki-link to the corresponding page on en-wikipedia by clicking here on commons in the sidebar menu under 'In Wikipedia' on 'Add links' and then putting in the appearing pop-up box the link to the corresponding article on en-wikipedia. This will add a link to commons to all language versions of the corresponding article on en-wikipedia. MOreover this will avoid the corresponding article to be included in the maintenance category en:Category:Commons category template with no category set.

Many thanks if you could consider to do so, indeed this would reduce my efforts on adding these iw links later through patrolling the pages listed on the pre-mentioned category on en-wikipedia. I would like to thank you for all the great work you are realizing on en-wikipedia and here on commons.

If you have any further questions on this do not hesitate to contact me. Best regards and already now my very best wishes for you for the New Year. Robby (talk) 07:57, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for your note, let me give that a try! - Ahunt (talk) 13:22, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps I am misunderstanding what you are asking, but it looks like it is already done. - Ahunt (talk) 13:26, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
You are right it's already done for this article. It was mostly to take your attention to this. So you may try it for the next category you will create on Commons.Robby (talk) 14:14, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. - Ahunt (talk) 14:23, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

File renamingEdit

Hello Ahunt,

thank you, for proposing file renaming for some of my images from AERO Friedrichshafen. While the renaming is generally really helpful and justified, I would like to ask you, to keep the file ID in the name. This is the only way, I can properly identify each file, after uploading to Commons.

Cheers,

--MB-one (talk) 11:58, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

I see you have restored the file numbers. No sweat, Commons and Wikipedia users don't really need the numbers, but if they help you I'll leave them in future move proposals. Just so you know, I have also proposed renaming one more file that has a ".jpg.jpg" double extension. I also noticed when you moved some of my proposed new names, that you put "XXX at AERO Friedrichshafen, Friedrichshafen". The duplicate location is probably not needed in the interests of keeping names as concise as possible. - Ahunt (talk) 12:08, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
You are totally right, that those numbers have probably no meaning to any other user, but then, they don't really hurt anyone either. The duplicated mentioning of "Friedrichshafen" comes from my standard naming scheme, which always includes the location in the file name for easier orientation. In this instance the name of the location was also included in the event name. Thanks for understanding. --MB-one (talk) 12:49, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Okay. Just a thought, but it might be easier to name the files as to the type of aircraft illustrated before uploading them to commons, then they won't require renaming at all. - Ahunt (talk) 12:54, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi Ahunt,
Your thought is, in theory, a good idea. In practice however it would overcomplicate the upload process.
Another question: have you considered applying for moving rights yet? It's quite simple and has virtually no downside to it. If you would like to get granted those rights, you can request them here: Commons:Requests_for_rights#Filemover.
Cheers --MB-one (talk) 16:09, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for that tip, I'll do that. - Ahunt (talk) 16:51, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover!Edit

 

Hi Ahunt, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

If you check the page noted it is under a CC-BY-2.0 licence, so is a free image. - Ahunt (talk) 17:24, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Source of derivative work is not properly indicated: File:442SqnCrest.JPGEdit

Català | Deutsch | English | فارسی | 日本語 | Русский | Slovenščina | Tiếng Việt | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−
 
This media may be deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:442SqnCrest.JPG, is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such works would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a map that has been altered from the original. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the description page states who made this derivative work, it currently doesn't specify who created the original work, so the overall copyright status is unclear. If you did not create the original work depicted in this image, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

Please edit the file description and add the missing information, or the file may be deleted. If you created the original content yourself, enter this information as the source. If someone else created the content, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so. Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

Ronhjones  (Talk) 19:28, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

It is a photograph of a three dimensional object, in this case a sewn badge. The name of the company that sewed the badge is unknown. - Ahunt (talk) 20:41, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

A-I-R AtosEdit

Hi Ahunt! The en:A-I-R Atos article does not have any photos. Can you please add info about these variants to the article or use any of these photos?

Many thanks! -- Meisam (talk) 16:25, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Those are completely different aircraft than the Atos hang glider, so new articles would need to be started to use those photos. I have no refs that would show the notability of those types, do you? - Ahunt (talk) 16:30, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Ah…! I didn’t check the article. Seems like they are going to stay in the Commons for a while. I’ll write you again if I find any good reference about them. Many thanks for your great articles in the Wikipedia anyways. -- Meisam (talk) 17:41, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Sure, let me know! Glad the articles have been of use! - Ahunt (talk) 17:49, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Solid Air DiamantEdit

Hi again! Can you please check this photo? Is it the Solid Air Diamant LP? -- Meisam (talk) 17:43, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

PS: this one seems to be the EP variant! -- Meisam (talk) 17:46, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your note. Based on the markings and visual ID, I would say those are. Thanks for finding those images, I'll add them to the article. - Ahunt (talk) 00:25, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
