Autopatrol 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 sighted. This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, you can now share images from Flickr using the UploadWizard, batch-upload up to 500 files with UploadWizard instead of 50 and upload freely licensed audio files in the MP3 format. Thank you. INeverCry 23:32, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

China flag deletionsEdit

It is not the place of Commons to decide if a flag is historically accurate or legitimate, that is the job of the individual projects that decide to use the files, however in the case of these flags, the files look to be copyvios, are derivatives of copyvios, by a permabanned serial copyviolater and I've deleted them on that basis.--KTo288 (talk) 11:42, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

@KTo288: My deletion nominations ([1][2][3]) are valid as I did highlight the copyvio and what-you-mentioned was part of my explanation of why there's no proof that these flags are freely available (including on the basis of age, because it is inaccurate). I can't imagine anyone wanting a vague-as-possible deletion nomination, do you? Do you criticize that? I made a deletion nomination in case there was something to discuss. You are wrong if you think that I'm going after historically-inaccurate flags, because I just put a {{fact disputed}} with explanation on inaccurate images if they are freely available (like so [4]). --Cold Season (talk) 18:43, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Apologies than, {{Fact disputed}} is absolutely the right way to go with these things normally, reading between the lines I sensed a frustration with inaccurate/fake flags, that it would seem to be unjust. Actually with these ones if you had put them up for deletion by reason of copyviolation with a link to the site they came from, without mentioning, for example " annoyingly many self-designed flags purported as a historical flag." then it wouldn't have appeared that you had an axe to grind, and motivation to do anything but rid us of a copyvio. Anyway and I should have said this in my earlier comment, thanks for picking up on the fact that these were copyvios.--KTo288 (talk) 19:50, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
There's nothing to apologize for. I will leave unnecessary loaded words such as "annoyingly" out of it next time. --Cold Season (talk) 22:25, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
No problem, not really looking forward to next time though. These were obvious copyvios and easy to come to a decision, its going to be tricky now if someone decides to make a version of the flag themselves to replace the ones deleted, based on the design of the flags from that site, but not actually stealing the image from that site. How would we decide between your supposition that the user there created them from his own imagination-in which case the new files would be copyvios. Or if as he said he only based them on existing flags that he saw in a Vietnamese museum, in which case a derivative work inspired by a derivative work of a PD work. I may bury my head and let someone else decide that one. Anyway all the best.--KTo288 (talk) 13:37, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I hope I got your questions right. If the source site is unreliable/unavailable and we have to decide for ourselves, then it would be nice to have a reliable reference (like so; this file doesn't even have a source) or some museum identifiers (like a museum name, accession number... like so) for the object, noting that it was the basis for the derivative work. The rest is a gray area, so I can imagine. All the best to you too, Cold Season (talk) 21:14, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Yusuf ibn Abd al-Rahman al-Mizzi.jpgEdit

Thank you for doing this Commons:Deletion requests/File:Yusuf ibn Abd al-Rahman al-Mizzi.jpg. I don't do anything over here or I would have started the process J8079s (talk) 05:08, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

No problem. This should at least spur the uploader to provide correct information about the uploads or face it getting deleted. If you have anything to add there, feel free to do so. --Cold Season (talk) 16:13, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Your questionEdit

Hi Cold Season,

I'm innocent.

You guessed right, I've nothing to do with this chinese file, I don't know what happened here. If you find an explanation, I'd be happy to know it !

Best regard from (not cold at all) Paris.--Jebulon (talk) 21:51, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

I understand. Thank you. --Jebulon (talk) 23:10, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Please use the {{Creator:Author name}} to describe the authorEdit

Hello. Please use the {{Creator:Author name}} (ex: {{Creator:Wang Xizhi}}) to describe the author, so that Commons can easily maintain the information of the authors. Thanks! This is Taiwania Justo speaking (Reception Room) 04:11, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps. But in this instance, it would be later copy of his work and not his own authentic work. Hence the "After Wang Xizhi". --Cold Season (talk) 04:41, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Do not nominate old Chinese paintings for speedy deletionEdit

and do not revert my edits. Ask any Chinese user and everyone can tell you those paintings do not come from anytime later than 19th century.--Roy17 (talk) 21:10, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

I do not have to "ask any Chinese user" for whatever. You or anyone else need to provide an actual source as provided by Commons:Deletion policy, otherwise the files can not be kept. "Unknown" or any similar general statement is not a source. --Cold Season (talk) 21:14, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Your action is just like asking people to prove painters of Category:Ancient Egyptian reliefs are dead 70 years ago. No, this evidence is not needed. You can go ahead and ask for that in a DR.--Roy17 (talk) 21:24, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Those have verifiable sources. There's a section dedicated to it in the policy Commons:Deletion_policy#Missing_legal_information.--Cold Season (talk) 21:41, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems#Cold Season. nominating old Chinese paintings for deletion. Thank you.

--Roy17 (talk) 23:22, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Nominating problematic files (which is literally Commons:Deletion policy) is grounds for that? Pff, ok. Bye. --Cold Season (talk) 23:24, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
