Images from Facebook?Edit

Hi Babu,

The metadata from File:29 January Romanian protest10.jpg (same for some related images) shows that this image was originally published on Facebook. Did you publish them on Facebook yourself or how did you get permission for reuse.

Greetings, Basvb (talk) 16:15, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Basvb,
My friends publish their photos on Facebook, but give me the permission to upload them on Commons. The permission was given by Facebook chat in Romanian language. --Babu (talk) 17:03, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your reaction. We normally do not accept indirect permissions. Would it be possible for you and your friends to verify these permissions using Commons:OTRS? This is done to ensure that those releasing images know what they are releasing and to prevent to false permission claims. Basvb (talk) 17:12, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
I'll talk to my friends, but just for your information this system is rather heavy and discouraging. - --Babu (talk) 17:55, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes I know OTRS is not always optimal. Another option, if the facebook pages are open to be seen by everybody, is that they publish the image with cc-by-sa in the description (or in a comment chain after asked if they release the image). Then Template:LicenseReview can be used to verify the permission. This option is prefered over OTRS (by me) if possible. Basvb (talk) 18:19, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much for this information. --Babu (talk) 18:22, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Photos of picture panels on Calea VictorieiEdit

Hi Babu, there might be problem with many of your uploads in Category:Walking on Calea Victoriei. Per Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Romania there is no freedom-of-panorama exception from copyright for photos installed in public space. In addition, it seems that these picture-panels are not permanently installed. Therefore, you need to research for each visible photographic image on these panels, who is the original photographer and when did he/she die. Alternatively, you need the information, when each image had been first-published/created and whether eventually the original copyright is already expired.

etc.
--Túrelio (talk) 09:13, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio. Is true, these picture-panels are not permanently installed, but I am unable to do what you are saying, so please delete them or do what you're supposed to do. --Babu (talk) 09:36, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
The alternative that you gave me is also very hard to do, almost impossible. --Babu (talk) 09:57, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
I have no wish to delete these images, which are likely of value for Wikipedia and for history in general. However, we have to try to respect the copyright of its original authors. I think it should be possible for you (and would also be of value for the use of these images) to obtain information at least about the year of creation of the original images (when they have been shot). With the help of other users from :ro-Wikipedia you may then be able to determine — based on Romanian copyright-law — how long the copyright might last. As you shot these images yesterday, you could eventually still contact the people who put the original photos on these panels and who might have more information about them. --Túrelio (talk) 10:37, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Indeed, the images are valuable for Wikipedia and especial for ro.Wikipedia. I'll try to follow your advice and - as this will last - please feel free to delete the pictures; I can upload them again after (and if) I'll manage to obtain needed information. Thank you for your helpful attitude. --Babu (talk) 13:37, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Butterflies of RomaniaEdit

Hi Babu, thank you for your uploads of butterflies. Could you please add the species categories to them? I also want to inform you I had to recategorize a few pictures that are not from Romania, such as this one. Best regards --LamBoet (talk) 17:42, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

FYI I made a couple of corrections here: 1 2 3 4.--LamBoet (talk) 00:56, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
About these two 1 2, the blue basal sheen makes them look like C. osiris. Are you sure that they are minimus? (Have you seen the upperside of the wings?) --LamBoet (talk) 17:36, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I'm not the author of the photos, I'm just the uploader. I've noticed that this one is similar with "my" Cupido minimus (the same blue basal sheen). But I'm not an expert. --Babu (talk) 18:44, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
They actually look quite different to me (much less blue, more minimus-like). Given the doubt, I prefer to label "your" pictures as "Cupido sp." --LamBoet (talk) 15:24, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Cats of BucharestEdit

Hello. Wikimedia Commons is not facebook. Thanks. --Allforrous (talk) 15:05, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Please look better before make accusations, not me but another user upload cats photos, I've just corrected the category. - --Babu (talk) 15:16, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

GaudeamusEdit

Hello! I saw that you have renamed Category:Gaudeamus 2011 to Category:Gaudeaumus 2011, but the name of the fair is Gaudeamus, see the official website at gaudeamus.ro. The proper spelling of the term is also without any 'u' before the 'm', see en:Gaudeamus igitur. Razvan Socol (talk) 15:39, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

MonthbyyearEdit

Hello Babu, you have added an extra "0" before the number of the month. The documentation of the Monthbyyear template advises to use just the number of the month - see the example. Sorting works well without extra zeros, the template adds a zero in front of month numbers that are under 10. --Estormiz (talk) 05:27, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Hello Estormiz. Plese see Category:2001 in Romania where the months aren't sort well. They are displayed correctly only if I add 0 in front of the months <10 --Babu (talk) 12:43, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
I removed the zeros and if look at the Category:2001 in Romania by month, you can see sorting works. Sorting also works in case there is no "Year by month" category, see Category:1998 in Romania. But in case the year category is mixed with pages with a zero and without zero, the sorting does not work. I guess it could be possible to alter the template so that it wouldn't matter which way one fills in the template code. --Estormiz (talk) 17:18, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
I understood. Thank you for your explanations. --Babu (talk) 19:03, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Government buildings in BucharestEdit

https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Government_buildings_in_Bucharest&diff=321496606&oldid=83504092 seems wrong to me. Nearly all of these are buildings of the national government; only a couple are part of the government of Bucharest. - Jmabel ! talk 15:41, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

It's true. Changes reverted. --Babu (talk) 15:56, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
