Allie X Performs Live at the Phi CentreEdit

Hello, could you explain to me why you deleted the image used on Allie X's page? I explicitly asked the person who released these to release it stating anyone may use the photos for any reason etc. Upon further inspection it appears their tumblr where this was was deleted, but you can see evidence of the exchange here: You can see Jessy posting links to the images and clearly stating they are happy to have their pic up on Wikipedia. Thank you for your time.

After a DN closeEdit

Hiya BrightRaven: Any chance that when you close DN's and suggest a change in license, as at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Macvey Napier by J P Slater.jpg that you update the file template to indicate the change? That way the image won't appear incorrectly licensed and people will be less likely to misunderstand in the future. As I was taking it off my watchlist, I'll fix it, but any possibility you could do this from now on? I really hate throwing the fish back in the ocean with the hook still stuck in them. Cheers!

Recent DeletionsEdit

Hey BrightRaven, I am extremely disappointed that you deleted some of my uploads. For the Diamondbacks logos, the logos were from a Sports logos site. The Snake logo was used more often from 2002 to present day. For the Mission Oak High School logos, the school gave me permission to keep their Wikipedia page up to date. Also I redesigned their school logo that is their asb and athletics logo and as an artist, I do not appreciate when someone deletes my work that I put weeks of hard labor on. So I ask you to undo all your deletions and I will assure you that I am not violating copyrights. I am just contributing like you to make Wikipedia the true online encyclopedia. Here are links that prove my uploads don't violate copyrights:

Traditional to reply to notesEdit

Hi BrightRaven I see you have been busy on the project recently; but you have not replied to talk page notes. I think it would be lovely if you took a couple of minutes away from deletions and replied! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:10, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

File:"Alter Hafen-vor 1914".Bremerhaven. Ölgemälde.H. Kohnert.jpg has been marked as a possible copyright violationEdit

Hi, BrigthRaven, unfortunately it was not possible to send you an e-mail, therefore I'll use this way for communication. Today you deleted the above named file "because of possible copyright violation". The only reason given was: " [[:c:de:Hans Kohnert|Hans_Kohnert]] died in 1967. ". I am well aware that normally fotos of pictures older than 70 years are allowed to be uploaded to wikimedia commons. However, this case is different. The person in question, Hans Kohnert, was my grandfather. He died in 1967, the original which was painted in the 1920th, is in family property. The foto of the picture was taken by myself. It has been used in the wikipedia-arcticle on "Hans Kohnert" by myself in order to illustrate that my grandfather was not only a well-known entrepreneur and sponsor but also a gifted paineter himself. Could you please explain why you deleted the file and/or if possible re-install the file? Kind regards, Dirk-Franz --Dirk-Franz (talk) 13:55, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

File:King Diamond Logo.pngEdit

Regarding your close of Commons:Deletion requests/File:King Diamond Logo.png, Commons:Licensing states that to be acceptable for Commons, the image must be in the public domain in at least the United States and in the source country of the work. So to my understanding it would not be enough that the logo may be considered PD in Denmark, it would have to be PD in the U.S. as well. I highly doubt it would fall in to PD in the U.S., based on the level of originality in it and prior cases of band logos I've seen deleted from Commons with similar levels of originality (for example and --IllaZilla (talk) 06:10, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Category:Buddhist temples in Ratchaburi ProvinceEdit

Hi BrightRaven,

I hope, you can still remember this? On 4 October 2013‎ you assigned Category:Buddhist temples in Ratchaburi Province to File:Wat.JPG. Do you have any more specific information about this file/building, e.g. name of the temple, location, etc.?

Marine Le PenEdit

Salut. Est-ce que tu pourrais jeter un coup d'œil sur les fichiers de cette galerie qui ont été supprimés. La frontière est parfois assez mince et les interprétations divergentes selon les pays et les personnes, surtout quand il s'agit de Marine Le Pen, comme on peut encore s'en apercevoir ici et (j'indique également que je suis « en froid ») avec les deux protagonistes de cette affaire.

Fritz BoscovitsEdit

Hallo BrightRaven, warum hast Du die Bilder von Fritz Boscovits aus den Wiki Commons und aus seinem Artikel in der Wikipedia deutsch gelöscht? Die Bilder sind legal importiert worden, und die Familie Schmid, Erben des Malers Fritz Boscovits (1881-1965) in Meilen am Zürichsee hat die erforderlichen Formulare unterschrieben an die Administratoren der Wiki Commons eingereicht. Ich habe jetzt mit der Familie Schmid Kontakt aufgenommen, damit die Formulare mit den Unterschriften der beiden Enkelinnen von Fritz B. Dir nochmals zugeschickt werden, und dann bitten wir Dich, dass Du den Löschungsbefehl rückgängig machst und die Bilder wieder an ihren Platz einsetzest. Mit Gruss --MGBiblio (talk) 10:29, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Hallo BrightRaven, ich bin heute mit der Familie Schmid nochmals in Kontakt getreten. Die Familie hat im Oktober je ein Formular unterschrieben und per pdf eingereicht, bevor ich die Bilder, die mir die Familie zur Verfügung gestellt hat, in die WikiCommons und dann in den Wiki-Artikel "Fritz Boscovits" eingestellt habe. Ich verstehe nicht, dass man nicht kontrolliert oder bei mir rückfragt, bevor man Bilder löscht. Sobald ich von der Familie die pdf-Dokumente bekommen habe, werde ich sie an BrightRaven einsenden, damit die Bilder wieder eingestellt werden. Mit Gruss, --MGBiblio (talk) 13:00, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello, BrightRaven, here some citations of your and my discussion items, and I would ask you to restore now the pictures, deleted without taking notice from the permissions sent to, with the ticket number 2015092810007236 at 28 of September. At 4th of November you declared: Hello ... When the permission is reviewed, the files will be restored. Best regards, BrightRaven (Diskussion) 12:03, 4 November 2015 (UTC) ... Hello BrightRaven, here the information from the Schmid family: the young lady had contact about 28 of September with Daniel Baur c/o Permissions-German Wikipedia, and she sent the permission signed by her mother and her aunt (as pdf for each of the pictures) to the address:, with the ticket number 2015092810007236. Is it possible that you may find the permission with the help of this information? It would be very fine if you could then restore the pictures in the media commons. From there I could insert them again in the wiki article about Fritz Boscovits. Many thanks for your help to restore them. Sincerely yours, --MGBiblio (Diskussion) 19:59, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello BrightRaven, could you please inform me, if you agree with the restoration of the 7 pictures by Fritz Boscovits?

Même si cette photo présente mieux la personne, j'avais remplacé car je ne suis l'auteur la présente photo.

Suppression des illustrations Michel StiévenartEdit

Bonjour, j'ai constaté que les illustrations que j'avais téléchargés ont été suprimées. Je vous avoue avoir de grosses difficultés à comprendre les différentes liscences. Pouvez vous m'aider à choisir la bonne liscence. Je suis l'heritire de l'oeuvre de mon grand-père qui est fort vaste (dessins médailles gravures sculptures etc). Ce n'est pas un problème que de cèder mes droits sur quelques oeuvres pour mieux le représenter. Pouvez vous me dire quelle liscence je dois choisir pour que wikimédia m'autorise à les utiliser dans wikipédia.

As you've requested, I've split the file history of File:Valerie Cruz.jpg. The older content is at File:Valerie Cruz.jpg. The newer content is now at File:Valerie Cruz (cropped).jpg.

Thank youEdit

I see that you have removed an abundant template that I put in. Could the template be the reason for the mess I've made in the deletion list? (I've already asked about the mess at [1], but I'm not sure how frequently that page is read. Sorry for mass posting.) But anyway: Thank you for cleaning after me! 3s (talk) 10:40, 12 January 2016 (UTC)


Hi BrightRaven. The file Portrait of Cosmas Xenakis.png that you deleted some minutes ago citing as a reason a publication by Piasa, is a picture taken by myself of which I have full copyright, and was used by Piasa after contacting me. I would appreciate if you could instruct me how to restore it. Thanks.

Thanks for checking. I sent OTRS forms for both works, hope everything is OK now. Monachus~commonswiki ( talk) 13:02, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Closure of Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Sainte_Onenne_recevant_le_baiser_de_la_vierge.JPGEdit

Je ne vous remercie pasEdit

Je sais que vous avez lancé cette procédure de bonne foi comme moi-même, j'avais patiemment et vraiment très longuement, d'abord cherché puis trouvé ces photos à la suite de deux séjours à Paris, puis consulté sur la possibilité de les publier sur Commons. Ensuite il y a eu cette procédure où je me suis aperçu que les arguments avancés n'étaient pas les bons. A la suite de quoi j'ai entamé de nouveau des démarches que l'on ne m'a même pas laissé conclure alors qu'elles allaient l'être. Je vous ai même demandé si j'avais le temps. Je sais que vous m'avez dit que ce n'était pas vous qui décidiez. Voilà des dizaines d'heures de travail réduites à néant. Je sais que je peux finalement publier ces photos, les arguments et les preuves seront apportés. Ce n'est vraiment pas agréable de travailler comme cela, pas du tout. Non, je ne peux vous remercier, je pense que vous le comprendrez. Je sais que l'on ne peut pas supposer que les droits d'auteur ne seraient jamais réclamés. En tout cas, ce qui est sûr, c'est que le travail des contributeurs, lui, est franchement peu estimé. Tonval (talk) 21:29, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

What on earth are you up to? I may not be the best wiki user in the world but everything I have uploaded and you removed I have the rights to. You have removed a whole article that has been up for just under a year.

Please re-evaluate

But sir I have found many images on wikimedia that originally post on that was why I'm upload it. And this image is 60 years old and I don't knows who's its author.-Dedha9 (talk) 08:42, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Sir, These pics are published in a Japanese magazine or newspaper in 1955. Because these are captured in Japan Wrestling Alliance, Japan during a tournament. One of them against Rikidōzan and another against King Kong (Emile Czaja).

Information is written in Japanese, so I can't understand anything. You plz check when I upload them. -Dedha9 (talk) 13:47, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

David Virgin, DCREdit

Hi there Patootik here. Please advise on how I can prove I own the copyright to the images David Virgin and Dublin City Rounders which you have makred for deletion. I had some images deleted recently, and rightly so. I uploaded them without fully understanding the terms, and that's why I didn't contest the decision to delete (some were mine, some were not, all we deleted because of the doubt). But in uploading these David Virgin and DCR pictures I was very careful to make sure these are pictures I took myself. The reason for the low quality and no EXIF is because I just copied them from Facebook rather than going through my archive to find them. And the reason for the professional looking images is because I'm a photography enthusiast, and I use Adobe Lightroom for my editing. These images are 100% my own works, and if my word is not enough please advise how I can prove it. Or if I have to remove these, how to make it clear that they are my own when uploading in future.

All advice appreciated. I'm not trying to be difficult, just want to represent these Wikipedia pages well with a photo each and do it according to the rules.

Thanks in advance.


Hello BrightRaven I looked through my HDD but was unable to locate those photos, I may not have the originals anymore, or they are on another HDD. I have however uploaded 2 new pictures that are straight from my HDD, one has been edited in Adobe Lightroom, the other is unedited. The edited David Virgin one was taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S4000, and the Dublin City Rounders picture was taken with my Sony DSC H-200. All the EXIF info should be intact, though the date stamp on the David Virgin picture is incorrect for some reason. Hopefully you will find these to be legitimate uploads to Wikimedia Commons. I will be sure to only upload images from the original source to avoid these issues in the future. Thanks for your help.

Kind regards.

Ibrahim DemirEdit

Hello mr. BrightRaven this photograph as you referred for copyright violation i am not sure if its possible. Because the engraving work in the photo belongs to me as signed with my name and still in exhibition in istanbul graphic art museum imoga. If you are referring that i have to prove that this work is belong to me, i can send various confirmation including contacting with the museum for a solid confirmation aswell. I am a beginner with wikipedia editing. So i have to learn more about references and sources.

File:Lyon 3e. Montchat. Le Chat.jpgEdit

Bonjour BrightRaven,
me voilà bien ennuyé ayant pensé que tout était OK mais me voilà confronté à un Bot (bien difficile de lui écrire !).
Concernant le fichier File:Lyon 3e. Montchat. Le Chat.jpg, en page de discussion figure l'autorisation de l'auteur de la photo. Il me semble que j'avais demandé son autorisation il y a plus d'un an (sa réponse a tardé !). Le versement sur Commons a eu lieu pratiquement à reception du mail. Il est joignable depuis Commons (lien fonctionnel dans la PDD du fichier).
Pouvez aider le Bot qui se pose des questions quant à la compatibité de la licence avec celles de Commons?
Merci et cordialement 6PO 14:38, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
