Please, don't remove the informational tags about the avaliability of SVG version. Sanbec 23:36, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Please stop editwarring over this. Can you both agree on the use of {{vector version available}} or just inserting a plain text link (An SVG version of this image is Image:xxxx?)? Thanks in advance. NielsF 23:49, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Flickr pagesEdit

Hello, I think, I really haven't been understand to use this Flickr pages. How can be the photos licenced from an open-source site and with writings "This photo is public" on the right and bottom of the page? Perhaps, you can explain me, which one I must believe, "This photo is public" or "All rights reserved" (that has been writings on the same place)([for example])? Sorry for my English, and thanks for helps. The cat 08:21, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

David Levy, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net. You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to Commons:List_of_administrators and the related lists by language and date it references...

Could you please explain what this is about? —David Levy 13:59, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

The image contains a license that isn't commercially free as well as GFDL. There is a license conflict which only the copyright holder (User:Erin Silversmith) can resolve. Nothing too serious. -- Cat ちぃ? 14:12, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, David Levy!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

En.wikipedia main page imagesEdit

Hello, I noticed that you protected main page images of the English language Wikipedia. While I can understand the protection and am perfectly fine with the protection, I was just wondering if you could protect them only from uploading, which is now possible with the MediaWiki software. You need to press "Unlock move permissions" and then you can set who is allowed to overwrite the file. Then, set the edit protection to all users, move protection doesn't matter as only sysops can move files anyways. Since the English Wikipedia main page wouldn't suffer if someone vandalizes the image description page, I'd be happy if you could make them editable when they're on the Main Page. Thank you. --The Evil IP address (talk) 13:10, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice! I've adjusted the image's protection accordingly, and I shall do so from now on.
Note, however, that some of the English Wikipedia's main page images are protected via cascading protection applied at this page. —David Levy 15:06, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Please help replace this outdated licenseEdit

Hello!

Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:

We need your help at the Wikiproject medicineEdit

Hello, Sorry for spaming your talk page, but this is very important. On the behalf of the Wikiproject medicine at the en.wikipedia, I am inviting you to be a part of the discussion going on the project's talk page about Patient images, The discussion started after I obtained a permission to more than 23000 dermatology related images, and about 1500 radiology images. As some editors of the Wikiproject medicine have some concerns regarding the policy of using patient images on wikipedia, and regarding patient consents. Also they believe that common's policy is not so clear regarding the issue. And since you are the experts please join us at this very important discussion -- MaenK.A.Talk 14:20, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-en.pngEdit

David, can you upload a revised version of File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-en.png for me? The file is here. The change is very minor. I have modified the default background color to be #f6f6f6 for display in older browsers like IE6. That color better matches the default skin. You can see the difference at [1]. It does not effect display in other browsers. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers --Svgalbertian (talk) 18:16, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, David. I'm sorry that I didn't talk to you about this one; I didn't even notice who placed the image here. I was e-mailed at my staff account about the matter, which puts me in a strange position because of the separation of duties. When approached as staff, I need to bring issues like this to the community to handle and not engage as a volunteer. Since my correspondent pointed out it was on the front page and needed an answer quickly, I ran it past an OTRS admin (who recommended the administrators' noticeboard) and then IRC. (Even as a volunteer, I'd have been taking it to somebody else, since image issues are not really my major area. :)) In retrospect, I wish I had looked into it at least deeply enough to drop personal notes to those involved; I must admit that the pressure to finish up a project I had due today kind of blinded me to that. Not very collegial of me! :/ Again, I'm sorry for that. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:07, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Oh, it's quite alright! In such a circumstance, resolving a potential copyright problem is of the utmost importance.
I wasn't at my computer at the time anyway, so contacting me wouldn't have made a difference. When I noticed that the image had been added to and removed from the English Wikipedia main page (with the latter due to a copyright concern), I responded to the speedy deletion request on the image's talk page and then proceeded to seek advice at the Commons administrators' noticeboard, where I saw your exceedingly friendly message.  :) —David Levy 21:40, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Wangari Maathai portrait by Martin Rowe.jpgEdit

If I got this correctly now: this low quality file uploaded by User:Get It in 2005 is deleted for copyright violation as well as a high quality version File:File-Wangari Maathai by Martin Rowe.jpg/renamed File:Wangari Maathai by Martin Rowe.jpg uploaded short time ago by User:Jan Arkesteijn. Why?
p.s.: avoid redirecting files to different files. It might be ok for the first of the aforementioned files, but its uneccessary for that file that only existed for 14 day without any usage on the project. It only makes things complicated, it gives a false impression of what the deleted file looked like and I first thought that the redirect target is a surviving version of the copyright violation. --Martin H. (talk) 09:21, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

I am surprised to find these files deleted, without there being any protocol. Who requested the deletion, and why? Where is the nomination page and discussion? Shouldn't the uploaders at least have been notified? Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 10:19, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
In your direction, Jan, I have the question: Where did you get the large quality version from, where is it published under a free license? In the permission field you added a link to the 2005 small quality upload, having however a small size version published under a free license does not mean that the large size version in other unfree publications is also free. --Martin H. (talk) 10:23, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
Searched for the full quality, its from http://greenbeltmovement.org/gallery.php, scroll down to media section and enter it. Its not free indeed. And according to internet archive it never looked different and never was free. --Martin H. (talk) 10:35, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
That is why this should have been discussed in a more public space than this discussion page. I referred to the copyright status of the smaller image. Copyright applies to intellectual property, i.e. the image, not the medium and it's properties. If the high res image is protected I am not allowed to rescale it to the small size and release it in the public domain. The small size image therefore cannot be in the public domain when the hi res image is not. Only fair use covers such a situation but we don't allow that here. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 11:17, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
The small size can if a license was arragend for the small size. Such a license contract will allow anyone to reuse the small size, it will not have any implications on the full size. --Martin H. (talk) 11:30, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
I disagree, based on the protection of the hi res image I am not allowed to scale it down to the exact smaller size. It is still protected. Even Peter Row can not put copyright on bits and bytes, only on the intellectual image. If he released the smaller size in the public domain, so did he do that for the hi res image. It is to bad the images where deleted so quietly. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 11:41, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
If you give a contract that anyone can reuse a version of 123x321px of the file then anyone can reuse a version of 123x321px of a file and not a larger version. If you ask a copyright holder to release a published file under a free license (example: "Can you provide a free licensing for http://greenbeltmovement.org/images/gal/s/gbmwm03.jpg?") then this license applies to the published file, not to any other publication of the file and not to unpublished versions. But it looks like the original uploader never got such a contract. In any possible case how the small size found its way to Wikimedia Commons, the later upload of the full size is copyright violation.
If the source is free then we should have replaced the small size upload with the full size years ago already. Regretably the source is not free. I agree however that a more clear deletion reason was required. --Martin H. (talk) 11:49, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
But you pass over in silence the contradiction. If I rescale the larger protected image to 123 by 321 pixels I have the exact same image but it is still protected because the source is. However, now I have two exactly the same images, one is protected, the other is not. It is a contradiction, that cannot exist, legally. Copyright is given for intellectual property, not bits and bytes, paper and ink, etc. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 12:20, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
You 'contradiction' is based on the idea that the original small size upload was free. It was/is not. --Martin H. (talk) 12:41, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
1. I discovered the copyright issue last month when the image appeared on the English Wikipedia's main page. At that point, I contacted the user who uploaded it there in 2005. (User:Get It merely transferred the file to Commons.)
I finally heard back from that individual, who has a history of image copyright problems and possesses no recollection of the file's unstated source. Having scoured the Web last month (which brought me to the same high-resolution version later uploaded by Jan), I found no indication that any form of the photograph ever was released into the public domain. (All such claims are based on our PD tag.)
2. As of last night, both files were in use. I assume that someone subsequently orphaned the newer one.
Note that I also visited every listed page, purged several dozen caches to fix broken transclusions, and edited pages to correct the sizing wherever I knew how to. (Template syntax varies from wiki to wiki.)
3. My apologies for not making the situation clearer. As you cited the original file's copyright status as the basis for the PD claim, Jan, I assumed that you would understand that the deletions in no way reflected on you. —David Levy 12:47, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the research, and if uploader doesn't know, then we have to assume the image is protected by copyright, so deletion is justified. I thought it was strange, though, that it happened without leaving any notifications. Under the given circumstances, the discussion about the copyright status of an image, which has a copy released in the public domain, will bleed to death, unfortunately. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 17:56, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
In retrospect, it would have been helpful if I'd left a message on your talk page (noting that I was in touch with the original uploader and explaining the copyright problem's nature). I apologize for not taking the time to do that. —David Levy 19:55, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Viscount of Rio BrancoEdit

It was not you the the person who scanned the file. It was I. It was not you the one who uploaded the file. It was I. If you believe that you prefer the photo cropped, wonderful. That's not everyone's else opinion. If you really want it cropped, then you may upload the photo in a new file and ask on the articles which the files are presently being used to use you new version. In case you are unware, you don't push your views through other people's throat. You don't revert what the original uploader did, who is the very same person who created the article about the Viscount of Rio Branco and successfully nominated to Featured Article. You talk, you discuss, you listen. That's how it works. --Lecen (talk) 19:54, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

We typically maintain multiple image versions with significantly different compositions/content. It's perfectly normal to perform minor tweaks to an existing file.
You don't own the file or have special authority to control it. However, I respect your opinions and have made a sincere attempt to solicit them.
You reverted my contribution without explanation (as though it was vandalism), at which point I attempted to discuss the matter with you. You ignored my message. Only then did I revert. —David Levy 21:04, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Help: no-FoP ItalyEdit

Hi. When you have a moment, could you do me a favor. I decided to occupy my time to list the no-FoP files in Italy. It has been a long and difficult work that needs to be reviewed by administrators. Please, could you check if everything is correct on User:Raoli/Deletion requests/FoP Italy? Thanks! Raoli ✉ (talk) 00:23, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
