JuTa 07:12, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

@JuTa: Can you be more clear what your issue with this image is? It's a two dimensional work, so the photographer doesn't have an independent copyright, and it was an election poster posted publicly in Slovakia, hence it should be PD under Slovak copyright law {{FoP-Slovakia}}. Thanks, Catrìona (talk) 07:23, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi, {{FoP-Slovakia}} isnt a license template. And I guess it doesnt apply here if you copied it out of a book or similar. It would only apply if this is permanently visible on a public street or similar. A poster is normaly not counted as permanetly visible. You need to find a suitable license within Commons:Copyright tags for it. (If there is one) regards --JuTa 07:28, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Autopatrolled rights givenEdit

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you. Thank you. - FitIndia Talk Mail 11:37, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

Images of Štefan Polakovič and Stanislav MečiarEdit

Hi Buidhe, I have just seen that you have uploaded a lot of very usable images to Wiki Commons. May I pose a request to you: I am currently writing an article about Slovak National Socialism, and it would be great to have portraits of it's to main philosophers in there. Best regards, --Trimna (talk) 09:28, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

  • @3mnaPashkan: Thanks! I do not have time to search right now, but many newspapers and magazines from the Slovak State era are digitized and available here. If you search e.g. "Stanislav Mečiar" and put 1945 as the end date, you can look through the results to see if there is a photograph of him. If there is no byline on the photograph, it can be uploaded as {{PD-Czechoslovakia-anon}}. However, this is quite time consuming so if your local wiki (dewiki?) allows it, it is much faster to do a local fair use upload. Thanks for your contributions! Buidhe (talk) 14:30, 4 March 2020 (UTC)
Dear Buidhe, sry for the late answer and many thanks for your advise! I looked through Nový svet and Gardista, but for now I haven't found anything – guess I have just to keep on searching ;-) I would greatly appreciate if you could keep uploading images from Slovak history on Commons (of course only when your time allows it). --Trimna (talk) 00:13, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi, so here's my first try. Do you have any advices on it? I just don't know how to get an more enlarged version of it. Regards, --Trimna (talk) 20:03, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

  • @3mnaPashkan: I just uploaded two new versions of the file, keep whichever you like better. You can download the entire issue as a PDF (see left sidebar) and then zoom in on the image to get the best quality. (However, the entire issue cannot be uploaded because many text articles are still probably copyrighted). Buidhe (talk) 20:13, 10 March 2020 (UTC)
Awesome, I'm deeply grateful ;-) --Trimna (talk) 20:56, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

I'll try to upload the images from here, here and here, but since you are much faster in this than me, maybe you make it earlier. --Trimna (talk) 22:36, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Dear Buidhe, heartfelt thanks for so many uploads. Your doing such an important work! --Trimna (talk) 19:04, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Hello! In the case you are interested, I've found new great image material here. There are also some great shootings from the Hlinka Guard. Best regards --Trimna (talk) 21:08, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Images of Fascist concentration camps in LibyaEdit

Dear Buidhe, at the moment I am writing the German article of the so called „Pacification of Libya“, where the Italian fascists have also committed a genocide on the Libyan people. Images of the Fascist concentration camps can be seen at a end of a franche scientific page here. Could you upload them? I guess they can be all used unter the PD-Libya license, since they where all published without a mentioned author in the book of General Rodolfo Graziani (Rodolfo Graziani: Cirenaica pacificata.

It may not be your intention...Edit

...I'll take your word for that, but it is the net result.

And, no, there was no "personal attack" in my last comment, or in this one. I simply think you need to re-evaluate your editing philosophy and put the needs of Commons, Wikipedia, and our combined readership ahead of conforming the the ledantic letter of the law. Beyond My Ken (talk) 18:44, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

  • You wrote that I am "going out of your way to strip Commons of historically pertinent images on ultra pedantic grounds". That is a classic example of assume bad faith and unnecessarily personalizing a dispute. What I'm trying to do is make sure that we follow all relevant laws, policies, and guidelines. Please try to AGF in future. Buidhe (talk) 18:49, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Gallica and PD-ArtEdit

Hey there! Don't use PD-Art for Gallica images: The BnF doesn't claim copyright on their scans - they state openly the images are public domain - which means we're adding an unnecessary restriction if we put PD-Art on it. PD-Art is a more restrictive license than a general PD statement. The Library of Congress (US Federal agency, hence unable to create copyright) is another one to avoid PD-Art for.

For the record, given it's the lead image for the newspaper, and given the quote is... well, I don't want to say harmless, but sufficiently specific to its time, and greatly adding to the discussion of Naziism. It's chilling in implications, but not a call to action in the modern day - because of that, I think this would do well on en-wiki's FPC. Adam Cuerden (talk) 07:21, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Manzanar Relocation Center, Manzanar, California. Street scene of barrack homes... - NARA - 538128 - restored.png. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Photos from USHMEdit

Hi Buidhe. I've noticed that recently you uploaded some photos from collections of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum which depict death camps in Bełżec and Sobibór. Do I understand correctly that from the legal point of view every USHM photo mark as "public domain" (like this one) can be uploaded in Commons? Regards.Dreamcatcher25 (talk) 06:45, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

  • @Dreamcatcher25: I've found that some of the public domain claims are not correct for all jurisdictions, so I would not upload unless there's a plausible explanation for being public domain both in US and source country. In some cases, there are multiple sources for a file and only some of them are marked public domain, while others are marked copyright. In those cases, I would excercise caution. (For example this photo appears to be a private photograph—not PD-USArmy as Seibel's job was not a photographer—I would not upload it even though KZ-Gedenkstaette Mauthausen claims it's public domain). Photographs from NARA, or those with Signal Corps watermark, can be safely assumed to be {{PD-USGov}} or {{PD-US-alien property}}, but if the photographer was not a US government employee, copyright status in the source country also has to be considered. For example this photo cannot be uploaded (Ricken died less than 70 years ago so not PD in Austria). If it says "Cases Tried" then it's safe to assume it was published as part of war crimes trials in the 1940s and therefore {{PD-EU-no author disclosure}} (if anonymous). If it's marked public domain and the source is a Polish archive as in the example you gave, Polish law is very liberal with regard to photograph copyright so I just mark it as {{PD-Polish}} (which also covers being public domain in the US). In short, most of them are OK to upload with a bit of common sense and caution. Buidhe (talk) 07:24, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Special:Diff/433995641Edit

Hello. Is there a criterion under which File:Porn actress lisa wilson.jpg could be renamed to File:Lisa Wilson.jpg? It was moved from that name for a very weak reason. I don’t see why the file could not have that name, especially as there are no other files with similar names, the proposed name already redirects to it and the proposed name would match the Commons category and the Wikidata item. FredWalsh (talk) 01:03, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

  • @FredWalsh: I believe this situation is covered under COM:FRNOT, specifically: "Files should NOT be renamed only because the new name looks a bit better." and "Files should NOT be renamed only to translate the filename to another language and/or because the filename is not correctly capitalized." Buidhe (talk) 01:13, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
It is not a case of making it look a little better or correct capitalization. The proposed name was used until someone renamed it for a weak reason that is not covered by the renaming criteria. Why cannot it match the category and wikidata item? FredWalsh (talk) 01:17, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
The other move was six years ago and the title has been stable since then. Nevertheless, if you are convinced that the file meets the renaming criteria (it doesn't) feel free to take it up with another file mover. Buidhe (talk) 01:20, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Charles-Antoine Cambon - La Esmeralda, Act III, Scene 1 set design (Version 2).jpgEdit

Responded to you there. I get your confusion, though. This kind of artwork threw me a lot at first, but I suppose it predates black-and-white photography, so which colour became the middle was up in the air. And if you want more detail...

This seems to be the sort of technique that was particularly suited to making prints from - easy to tell light, midtones, and darks apart, which meant that you could work a print up from very little. I think Cambon is cheating a bit here - his use of white is relatively unimportant and slapdash - I get the feeling on the right he's using it more as an anti-shadow for the out of-focus background elements - but this is a production drawing, the next stage would have been something like https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b54002418n.r=charles%20cambon?rk=85837;2 - but, on the other hand, that may be for the best: 19th-century white ink, if used in too great of quantities, tends to turn rather ugly colours. For example, https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b70010807/f1.item.r=charles%20cambon.zoom

Will I do more Cambon? Sure. He did some gorgeous things for Armide, for example: [1] [2] - and when he is consciously using white for special effect, it can be stunning. [3] - he even, rarely, does more full-colour images, e.g. [4], [5] - and his Wikipedia article could probably use more than just La Esmeralda as examples.
