Identifying a tankEdit


I'm not an expert on Soviet and Russian tanks, particularly when it comes to the T-series... must admit despite years and years of photographing armored vehicles on three different continents I still don't know the difference between a T-54 and a T-55. Could you identify which one it is in this picture I took? Thanks.

No hope. I know nothing, just move what people can verify. I would suggest looking at the names of the uploaders of images.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:35, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello.This file is s duplicate.See Commons:Deletion requests/File:Arab stone design.jpg.Thank you --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 11:29, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Deletion requests trump speedy deletion requests, so I removed the speedy template. If you ever wish for something to be considered as duplicate them please use Template:Duplicate  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:32, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

I am a writer and took them in 4 years!هفشجانی (talk) 09:35, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

If they have been marked as copyright by someone else then please remove the tags and address the matter directly with the person who tagged them. The problem will certainly lie with images that you uploaded that do look at though they were taken by you, and other images have been marked due to this assoication.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:52, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

I have instructed you on how to proceed for nominated though not yet deleted. Admins should only delete pictures that appear to be copyright. If they have already been deleted, then address the issue with the deleting admin, or with the process at Commons:Undelete  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:12, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

please delete this photo/they are not clearly!

Closed DREdit

I'm guessing that you missed that it was my intent, when I 'voted', to add File:Pokémon Go Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge.jpg to the DR about the cropped version. It's really not DM either, the sign and the Pikachu are just as much the 'subject' of the image. I'd flagged it as being up for discussion there when I mentioned it as 'also', so it needs closed out as well. Thanks. Reventtalk 01:04, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

I did miss the referral. I will label {{fair use delete}}.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:21, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, and thanks again for understanding DM. :) Reventtalk 12:43, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Dcoetzee talk pageEdit

Could you unprotect the talk page please, or raise this page protection at AN? Many volunteers who are not Commons Administrators work with Dcoetzee's legacy of uploads, especially the Google Art project images. Using their user talk page to flag notices for deletion requests and other issues is useful and putting the information anywhere else makes no sense. Commons has no policy for stopping all edits to a banned user's talk page even when the banned user can no longer edit it. Thanks -- (talk) 12:07, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

You are welcome to raise it at AN. (Obviously) I believe having contributions on the talk page of a banned user is counter-productive.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:08, 18 August 2016 (UTC)


Hello, I saw the you deleted the logo of ICCROM that I uploaded to the Spanish language article about it. I work for ICCROM, therefore I am the rightful owner of the logo, but I understand that the Spanish language Wikipedia forbids fair use images. However, isn't there an exception for logos of organizations? Many thanks --Akozlova

That you are an employee of an organisation does not allow you to own the copyright of a logo. If your organisation is willing to put the design of the logo into the public domain then please have someone authoritative within the organisation follow the process at Commons:OTRS. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:57, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
So there is no way to upload the logo under "fair use"? It has to be released into the public domain? I know exceptions are made under the Wikipedia in English and in other languages for logos to be uploaded under a "fair use" policy.  — Akozlova
English Wikipedia has an allowance for fair use through w:en:Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline as it limits how and where an image can be used. Commons, however, is the central point for all wikis to store files, so has a no fair use statement in its Commons:Project scope. If that is an issue for articles at Spanish Wikipedia then you should address that matter at that wiki.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:03, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
