2 images

Dear Christian,

Please review these images when you can. I only upload them since Commons does not have this species but they are confirmed to exist here and here

Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:17, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Thank You. I will ask Thiotrix to create a category for them. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:23, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

4 DR's

Dear Christian,

If you wish, you could consider closing these 4 DRs below as delete as they are more than 1 week old and no one has replied to them....except the first case where the uploader conceded it cannot be kept.

As for this image below, I am unsure if its OK to review it as I thought the nightlights of the Eiffel Tower are copyrighted.

Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:18, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

  •   Done, for the Eiffel tower, I think the light is quite ordinary in this image... I reviewed it, but I will understand if you or someone else nominate it for deletion. Christian Ferrer (talk) 12:18, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Thank You Christian for your advice. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 19:42, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Nice guitar skills!

Just saw your YouTube channel. Amazing stuff. I liked your Passion cover a lot! I'm not too much of a Johnny Mandel fan though haha. ― Gerifalte Del Sabana 10:59, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks you very much, glad you like it. Me neither, I'm not especially a fan Johnny Mandel whose work I know very little, I'm more a guitar swing fan and I played Johnny Mandel because we have a little studied this song in classroom at the music conservatory.

Structured Data - development update, March 2019

This text is also posted on the Structured Data hub talk page. You can reply there with questions, comments, or concerns.

A development update for the current work by the Structured Data on Commons team:

After the release of multilingual file captions, work began on getting depicts and other statements ready for release. These were originally scheduled for release in February and into March, however there are currently two major blockers to finishing this work (T215642, T217157). We will know more next week about when depicts and statements can likely be ready for testing and then release; until then I've tentatively updated the release schedule.

Once the depicts feature is ready for testing, it will take place in two stages on TestCommons. The first is checking the very basics; is the design comfortable, how does the simple workflow of adding/editing/removing statements work, and building up help and process pages from there. The second part is a more detailed test of depicts and other statements, checking the edge-case examples of using the features, bugs that did not come up during simple testing, etc. Additionally we'll be looking with the community for bugs in interaction with bots, gadgets, and other scripts once the features are live on Commons. Please let me know if you're interesting in helping test and fix these bugs if they show up upon release, it is really hard to find them in a test environment or, in some cases, bugs won't show up in a testing environment at all.

One new thing is definitely coming within the next few weeks, pending testing: the ability to search for captions. This is done using the inlabel keyword in search strings, and will be the first step in helping users find content that is specifically structured data. I'll post a notice when that feature is live and ready for use.

Thanks, let me know if you have questions about these plans. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

File deleted

Dear FatherMcFly!

I think that the words of PaterMcFly in this discussion were absolutely correct. See also this source. It is not clear why the file was deleted. Could you please restore this file to Wikimedia Commons??

Thank you in advance, --DarDar (talk) 10:34, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

  • No, I will not, sorry. In my understanding, and in matter of copyright status, "unknow author" is not the same thing than "anonymous author", therefore it is not clear to me that the work is indeed in public domain. Christian Ferrer (talk) 14:08, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment: Thank You Christian for giving me a second good opinion on that image. I have reviewed it now. With flickr images, I worry sometimes even though I saw the camera metadata. As for the 3 images, I only uploaded them since there are so few images in their 3 categories here, here and here . Thanks for all your help.

Structured Data - early depicts testing

The Structured Data on Commons development team has the very basic version of depicts statements available for early testing on Test-Commons. You can add very basic depicts statements to the file page by going into the new “Structured Data” tab located below the "Open in Media Viewer button." You can use the Latest Files link in the left side nav bar to select existing images, or use the UploadWizard to upload new ones to test with (although those images won’t actually show up on the site). The test site is not a fully functional replica of Commons, so there may be some overall problems in using the site, but you should be able to get a general idea of what using the feature is like.

Early next week I will call for broad, community-wide testing of the feature similar to what we did for Captions, with instructions for testing, known bugs, and a dedicated space to discuss the feature as well as a simple help page for using statements. Until then, you're welcome to post on the SDC talk page with what you might find while testing depicts.

Thanks in advance for trying it out, you'll be hearing more from me next week. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

How do you add a subpage to your profile?

Hi there,

I saw that you had added one of my photos to your "Favorites" subpage, and I was wondering how I could create such a page on my profile?

Thanks! Kestreltail (talk) 21:20, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Kestreltail: there's a gadget that can be enabled in your preferences that handles that. See Help:Favorites. clpo13(talk) 21:50, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi, indeed Clpo13 is right, you go to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets, section "Interface: Files and categories" and you select "Mark images as Favorites", and so, when you will look at a file, you will have "Fave" that appears in a tab, the subpage will be created automatically as soon as you click "Fave" for an image. In your image the building looks very impressive and I like the color tone. Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:46, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for responding so promptly (both of you)! I'm glad you liked my photo, Christian Ferrer! Félicitations on today's featured photo!Kestreltail (talk) 13:53, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Notes qu'en ajoutant ceci et cela dans Wikidata, tu vois deux nouveaux champs qui apparaissent dans l'infobox, l'auteur et la citation de l'auteur juste en dessous du nom scientifique, c'est nouveau pour la citation. (exemple) Christian Ferrer (talk) 12:21, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Je deviens plus fou que d'habitude ou je suis tombé sur un créneau de mise à jour.Je vais prendre la 2e option, quoique pour la galerie que je n'arrivais pas à créer... elle existait déjà.

Pour ton info Didier tu n'es pas fou, ou alors si tu l'es, le problème n'avait en tout cas rien à voir avec ta folie, c'était en effet un bug → [4]. Christian Ferrer (talk) 17:42, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
En ce qui concerne Wikidata les deux solutions sont utiles, car la première permet de lister les taxons par auteur et/ou par années. Un très rapide exemple → User:Christian Ferrer/sandbox4. La deuxième a un intéret évident, restituer la citation correcte. Le but étant qu'un jour nous soyons capable de regrouper les deux dans un seul champs, mais les nomenclatures sont tellement variées et compliquées que c'est très dur d'obtenir le rendu souhaité pour l'instant.

Problème en wikidata

J’ai décortiqué le cas de Ceratomia undulosa pour me faire la main et je trouve un problème qui est embêtant dans l’affichage des données.

  • Walker, 1856
  • (Walker, 1856)
  • Walker, [1856]

Seule la première est la bonne, les deux autres sont des exemples.

Les trois choses sont différentes La première formule veut dire que le nom initial est toujours en vigueur, la seconde que le nom du genre a été reclassé, la troisième que l’on connait l’année de la déception mais sans traces écrite. Comment le faire appraitre?--Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 08:44, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Didier, cela se fait via la propriété taxon author citation (P6507), elle est très récente et c'est moi qui l'ai proposé. C'est en fait un champ de texte qui permet de palier au manque d'un outil automatique pour recréer toutes les subtilités des différentes nomenclatures. Cela dit en ce qui concerne cette espèce, ce serait plutot la deuxième. Je te laisse essayer. Christian Ferrer (talk) 11:44, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
Didier, Pour etre plus précis, comme c'est un champs texte, tu y mets exactement le résultat que tu veux obtenir, en l'occurence pour "(Walker, 1856)" tu met le texte brut (Walker, 1856). Christian Ferrer (talk) 19:56, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Ok cette fois c'est parti, j'ai modifié Clanis titan j'ai bien compris. Il semble que ça n'apparaisse pas dans la Wikidata Infobox. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 07:20, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Didier, Ouh là là! cela n'apparait pas car tu l'avais rentré comme "référence" au nom de taxon, "référence" sert à noter la source potentielle. Mais je pense savoir ce qui ta trompé, c'est parce que lorsque l'on ajoute l'auteur et l'année, ces deux prorpiétés ont été parametrées pour etre des "qualifiers" du nom de taxon, sans d'ailleurs que rien ne justifie cela à mon avis, mais bon. Pour les ajouter tu clique sur "edit" puis "add a qualifier (ajouter un qualificatif)" ect... Ce n'est pas le cas pour "taxon author citation", pour l'ajouter tu clique directement sur "add statement (ajouter une déclaration)". Je l'ai corrigé pour Clanis titan, cela devrait apparaitre dans l'infobox, note qu'il y a parfois un délai pour les changements fais sur un projet soit visible sur un autre, le temps que les serveurs fassent leur le boulot. Christian Ferrer (talk) 08:34, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

If the content does not fit in the categories above, you may upload the file directly into Wikipedia under the "fair use rationale" as for the examples that you have quoted yourself. But I'm not a specialist, you'll have to ask there. You can read en:Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline. And for the most relevant policies here : com:scope and com:Licensing.

Category:Gareth Jones poster

Hi! I've seen a message from you about 'Gareth Jones' film poster. It was detected as not free content. I want to tell you, that this is the official Ukrainian poster of the film, that is noted in the release, and while adding it I've added the link to the official page of the film at the production company website. How can we solve this problem?

  • Hi, a free compatible license have to be added to the official website, or the copyright holder have to send a permission to our permission system, where you can read how to do it. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:02, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Why is artwork being deleted?

We added free artwork and it has been deleted repeatedly. Then, we updated the page with artwork already in Wikimedia and it has been deleted. Is our artist page being targeted for some reason? We have provided copies of our photography permissions for new artwork and we are following guidelines. Tbkowalski (talk) 14:04, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

  • In order to publish here, that is to say under specific licensing terms, the visuals of album covers, then the copyright holders of those album covers must send the appropriate permissions to our permission system. Otherwise, we can't keep the images of those disc covers. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:38, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Stanisław Mikołajczyk.JPG. While you are correct that anonymous =/= unknown, applicable PD template would be Template:PD-EU-no author disclosure. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 04:41, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

  • No, to be applicable it must be that "the original author's actual identity was not publicly disclosed". Sorry but there is, as far I see, no specific informations about the publication. Therefore once again "anonymous or pseudonymous" is not the same thing than unknown. Christian Ferrer (talk) 04:49, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

A question about URAA and chinese public domain

Bonjour, how are you, Christian? Sorry in English. You closed the talk (File:1962《阿诗玛》封面.jpg) and deleted the file with the reason of URAA. So I have a question that how can the URAA restore US copyright to chinese works. Let's just talk about File:1962《阿诗玛》封面.jpg. It is a front cover of a book that published in 1962. According to URAA main test:

If the answer to either of these questions is NO, then the URAA does not restore US copyright to foreign works.
1.If published, was the work published in an eligible country and not published in the United States during the 30-day period following publication in such eligible country?
2.Was the work still in copyright in the source country on the date of restoration?


For question 1, NO. This front cover is on a reissue version of a poem. People's Literature Publishing House first published the poem as a book in 1955, then two Japanese writers translated the poem and published it in 1957 (over 30-day period), the translate is based on the version published in 1955. On the other hand, this image File:1962《阿诗玛》封面.jpg has no relation with 1955's front cover.

For question 2, NO. This image is a front cover of a book, the copyright is reserved by People's Literature Publishing House, the publisher is a legal entity, so the book and the front cover is legal entity's project. According to Copyright Law of China Act 21 paragraph 2, the protected period is 50 years after publishing. So it has become public domain in China from 31 December 2012.

So I think URAA does not restore US copyright to the front cover.--瑞丽江的河水 (talk) 13:20, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Hello, the date of restoration of copyrights in USA for the People's Republic of China works is January 1, 1996, before the delay of 50 years for this book cover, this is why I deleted the image. Christian Ferrer (talk) 17:20, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
    • So, do all the photos and other projects that published in china after 1946 will be restore US copyright due to URAA, even it has become public domain in china? Thus, I can't upload chinese PD that published after 1946, is that right?--瑞丽江的河水 (talk) 20:17, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
If not in public domain at January 1, 1996, and published from 1924 through 1977 the duration of copyright protection in USA is 95 years. After 1 January 1978 in almost case the delay become 70 years after the death of author. Therefore, no you can't upload such works,published in china after 1946, unless I miss something. See Hirtle chart. Christian Ferrer (talk) 04:52, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
OK, cheers.--瑞丽江的河水 (talk) 10:06, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Kept images

If you feel Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Terrence Andrew Davis was in error, let us discuss it. I read everything and felt that Keep was the safer option due to the source website clearly stating materials are PD. Again, if you feel this is wrong, I am open to talking! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 21:26, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Yes of course I feel the files, at least the ones that I nominated, have to be deleted. That was the purpose of the deletion request. The publisher is very unlikely to be the photographer/author, therefore he can not put the images in public domain. That was what I tried to write in my rationale "the images are unlikely selfies, therefore we need the permissions from the photographer(s) ", and I did not change my mind. I do not have much more to say, do what you want. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:00, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello Christian Ferrer, can you take a look at this deletion request? I think the file can get deleted now! Thanks in advance. Best regards, Chem Sim 2001 (talk) 16:57, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks so much. Can you also close this deletion request? It has been opened for 12 days now. Don´t be scared of that big discussion. The original uploader of that file thought, I forgot to place the chemical catalyst into the middle of that reaction scheme, but it was intentionally. Just placing them somewhere into the middle is chemically nonsense. This reaction is divided up into many steps, and each of those steps use their own catalyst. They are explained in the respective Wikipedia articles. Furthmore, the reaction schema does become more clearer. Thanks for your help again!

Violaciones de los derechos de autor

Hola, Cristian. Yo entiendo que subí alguna imágenes para mi página personal del perfil de la Wikipedia que son cuestionables, pero tú me has borrado imágenes que las escaneé personalmente en mi casa, y que eran evidentes en las fotos. Me estoy refiriendo a las tapas de la revista EL PERIODISTA DE BUENOS AIRES. Ahora las voy a subir nuevamente, por favor no las saques porque las escaneé del material original, que tengo a mi disposición. De otro modo, por favor decime el motivo porqué no se pueden subir tapas de revistas escaneadas.Andrés Nicolás Arce (talk) 11:12, 21 April 2019 (UTC)Andrés Nicolás Arce

  • Hi, this is a screeshot of a freeware, not a of free licensed software. The right of commercial reuse, as well as modification, must be explicitly given by the copyright holder, even if it is you. This can't be done by an anonymous account such as the one you have used for this upload. We must be sure. There is two solutions, the copyright holder, even if it is you, send a permission to our permission system com:OTRS, or you add a free explicit license to your official website; example : just below the screenshot available in that page you add something like "this screenshot is licensed under the cc-by-sa-4.0 license".

How are they so called 'bogus' by you? These are real which other countries outside of the USA are involved, so they are not written in black and white format. If you will search the legal documents of other countries, these meet their standards and speciation. Simply to call a name does not make it fake.

  • Official documents may be in public domain for various reasons. But the reasons (e.g. source, authors, ect..) must be given and the relevant PD tags must be added to the files instead fo the Creative Commons license that are indeed bogus here. Example File:08-F-0481 FactorsDocsBates401-500.pdf, or one of the files in Category:PD US Government; or from another country. If the licenses are not fixed then the files will likely be deleted. If you correct them, do not mention it here but directly in the relevant deletion request page in order to help whoever will close the request, and that surely will not be me, procedure obliges.

RE: Deleted content

Hola Chris, por lo que veo podes entender algo de español (lo que sepa de ingles, lo escribiré en ingles)... Entiendo los motivos de querer borrar los de "Apoyo Social Mujeres" y "Harry Mason", básicamente porque no tengo permiso de sus dueños si bien puse toda la información de su origen.

Pero no entiendo por qué tienen que irse también el de "Alan Wake", "Drakan Logo" y "Alien Resurreccion HUD"... ¿Cuál es el motivo real? Porque tengo entendido que si son solo logotipos, no hay problema (como lo dice aquí). Fundamentalmente me importa la de "Alien Resurreccion HUD" ya que me llevó su tiempo "modificarla" para que no afecte algún tipo de copyright... ¿Qué se puede hacer?

Saludos y gracias de antemano!

  • Hola, borré los logos "Alan Wake" y "Drakan Logo" porque yo pienso que estos logos son por encima del umbral de originalidad.
Los logotipos y marcas registradas se aceptan en Wikimedia Commons solo si
están en el dominio público (ayuda) por una razón específica; o
están autorizados libremente por su propietario, en tal caso, incluya un enlace web; o
están por debajo del umbral de originalidad

Si no está de acuerdo con las razones que acabo de mencionar, puede solicitar la opinión de otro administrator en las solicitudes de restauración, pero dudo que los logos y el HUD sean aceptados aquí. Pero puedo estar equivocado, y has trabajado para crearlos. Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:37, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

HMLAT-303 New Squadron Patch

Good evening I am the Uniformed Readiness Coordinator (URC) for HMLAT-303 and I am attempting to update my squadron patch. We have recently (April 26, 2019) changed our patch design which can be seen in the following official Marine Corps page I attempted to upload the new squadron patch image on April 28 but it was unfortunately taken down on April 29. I was tasked to upload this image from the current commanding officer of HMLAT-303 which I thought would give me “required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above” as per your message on my talk page. If this true I would like to have the current HMLAT-303 patch design re-instated. If not, what is the correct channel to have the correct patch uploaded onto Wikipedia? Best regards HMALT-303 URC.
