Hi @Clpo13:. Since you posted on my talk page to clarify (and thank you very much!), I will reach out to you about how I need to proceed on next steps to save my image from speedy deletion.
I just sent an long note explaining my picture creation process and provided detectable evidence on the image itself on EugeneZelenko's Talk page, and I also provided an example of the image that inspired my work (An old illustration of Ann Hutchinson) followed by my own image on my own talk page, User talk:wtfiv. I put my image beneath it, so that the inspiration and the non-derivative nature of it can be seen. From what I've read on speedy deletions, just don't think there is evidence that my work fits into any of the elements of the "speedy deletion" category, unless I'm just misunderstanding something.
EugeneZelenko may not yet have had a chance to reply to my latest post yet and he is a responsive admin, so my request to you may still be a bit premature. But I am a little concerned that in the last discussion, EugeneZelenko insisted on an additional demands to "prove" the work is mine to move me off the speedy delete list (e.g., he wanted me to resubmit a bigger image when the image I submitted was within a few pixels of the original canvas I created and then repeated the attribution claim. I'm reaching out because I want to be proactive, as I'm proud of my work (see the image comparisons) and would like to ensure that is not prematurely deleted. Of course, I have requested that it be taken off the deletion list altogether, but I did ask that if he still felt that I am doing some copyright violation that he at least put my image on a normal deletion track so I could have it judged fairly by consensus.
My understanding, if I read the documentation correctly, is that normal deletion generates a discussion page. I gave details on his talk page). At this point, I'm starting to feel that I'm at the mercy of one person's judgement. It may be a seasoned judgement, but not necessarily correct in this case. If he and I cannot agree as to the status of the work, is there a way that I can garner other opinions and insight first? Any help or direction you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you very much.Wtfiv (talk) 08:41, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
EugeneZelenko did reply and admitted a second opinion would be good, though he still had his own personal reservations, but the template remains the same, the clock is still running, and I'm unsure how to open a discussion that can reach a consensus in time. Could you help?Wtfiv (talk) 16:05, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
I've been going through the guidelines and potential issues to the best of my ability. My understanding is that I can convert a speedy deletion to a regular one, which I did, so now there is a discussion page. I copied information from my talk page to start the discussion, but kept your account name out of it in case you rather not be involved. (Though I'd welcome your weighing in if interested.) Even though you didn't have time to reply to this, I just want to thank you for the potential of being available. Your simple clarification on my talk page helped me to figure out- after some trial and error- how to get started.Wtfiv (talk) 18:37, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
- @Wtfiv: sorry for not replying sooner, I didn't have Internet access for a while there. I agree that a discussion is the best way to go. FWIW, after reading your posts, I don't think there's any problem with the image. I'll chime in at the discussion when I get a chance. clpo13(talk) 16:48, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
