Thank youEdit

Thanks for fixing the image file [1], I had gone to another tab before it finished saving and when it did save I just closed it so until just now I had no idea of the error .... That'll teach me for not checking first! Face-grin.svg, Anyway thanks again, –Davey2010Talk 20:05, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Your 'notices' at DRsEdit

Edits such as you made at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Συνάντηση ΥΠΕΞ Σ. Λαμπρινίδη με ΥΠΕΞ Τουρκίας A. Davutoglu.jpg are not at all helpful. We are not going to close a DR, or delete it, because of who opened it, especially when a valid issue was raised. The potential consequence of keeping a file that is a copyright violation is unacceptable, and I don't think anyone is interested in playing some silly game of deleting and recreating the page just to deny some blocked sock of Russavia's the 'credit' for pointing out the problem. Please stop wasting people's time. Revent (talk) 11:02, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. Chalk this one up to a difference in cultures. While my home wiki (English) takes copyright very seriously, they also have a very aggressive stance when it comes to block/ban-evasion. There, such a notice would invite additional scrutiny of the claim that a copyright violation occured. Of course, if a copyright violation occurred and it was not permitted under that wiki's non-free content policy, it would be deleted (as far as I know, the Commons does not allow non-free content - but the point is that if a known banned or blocked user briglng a copyvio to that wiki's attention, the claim will get more than the usual amount of scrutiny but if is found to be valid it will be treated the same as any other valid claim).
Again, thank you for reminding me that the cultures on the English Wikipedia and the Commons have diverged in the years since the Commons was created and for pointing out that they have diverged when it comes to handling banned or blocked editors evading their ban or block.

If the WMF was not being so aggressive about globally locking Russavia's socks, there would undoubtedly be more attention paid to them here... at the same time, it would rather be a full-time job, and images that he uploads aren't his 'work', they are the works of the photographers, and if they are allowable and in scope then deleting them just to reupload them would be a bit silly. As far as that DR, since I don't read Greek it's hard for me to really have much of an opinion, but we get truly 'anonymous' copyvio reports constantly... admins are supposed to look much more at the evidence than who made the claim, since the copyright status of a work is generally a determinable fact. It's not like AfD on a Wikipedia, where opinions as to how 'notable' something is are far more important.
Largely, I think, most people here just consider trying to 'battle' with Russavia to be a waste of time... for one thing, he seems to enjoy it. Revent (talk) 00:08, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
