Those are free videos at YouTube and do not hold any copyrights. U1Quattro (talk) 05:13, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

No, not at all. Just because they are at YouTube does not mean that these videos are not copyrighted. To the contrary: The "Standard YouTube License" indicated in the video description does not allow any free use of the video without consent from the copyright holder. Please see COM:WHERE#YouTube how to identify YouTube videos with a free licence. De728631 (talk) 05:17, 8 February 2018 (UTC)


I have undone the hiding of the Trainpix bucket category. If you insist on hiding it, I will not revert you twice as you are an administrator. I would instead have to create another bucket category that can stay unhidden as a bucket category with exactly the same contents, though you would probably want to hide that for the same (non-policy) reasons. If you can think of a way of stopping bots unnecessarily flagging the images as having no categories if this bucket category gets hidden, I would appreciate it. Thanks -- (talk) 17:54, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

@: No problem. I for one though would be happy for the bots flagging all these pics. "Category:Images from somepage" and the like are non-topical categories that do not provide any assistance to a specific search and do not aid navigation as categories should do – which makes them hideable in my book. As to policies, there is no requirement to hide bucket categories, but Commons:HIDDENCAT at least acknowledges it as a common practice. Apart from that, it is a long-standing practice for aircraft and ship categories at least to regard images as "unidentified" as long as the type or, even better, the name haven't been categorised. I'm not going to hide the category again, but I'd appreciate it if you at least added a default Category:Unidentified rail vehicles to your upload script. De728631 (talk) 18:10, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
That particular category would be incorrect as the photographs of trains have very good identification information, most of which I doubt we have specific categories for. The bucket category is already in a topical category. -- (talk) 18:16, 20 February 2018 (UTC)


The original source - - I guess you mean this - does not show any image. Or which other source do you mean? --JuTa 01:36, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

@JuTa: Nein, ich meinte das, was als Bioguide im Feld "Quelle" angegeben ist. De728631 (talk) 14:05, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Das hat ich doch glatt übersehen. Dann sorry for the trouble. --JuTa 17:46, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Geschenkt.   De728631 (talk) 17:48, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Again on PD-1996Edit

Hi! I was wondering when URAA date applies. For instance, in Italy holds for works created by the Italian Government the Open by Default, i.e. applying by default CC BY license. In this case, URAA date doesn't matter, right? --Ruthven (msg) 09:16, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

@Ruthven: URAA applies only to works that were already in the public domain in their country of origin before 1996, but then got copyrighted retroactively in the US in 1996. So you're right that it has nothing to do with open government data where a free licence has been granted for using this data. De728631 (talk) 15:54, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Annamaria ParenteEdit

Hi, De728631 (talk). I've received an informal authorization from the image owner to use on WikimediaCommon, how can I manage to include it in his wiki page?. Thaks for your support. --Nicola Caione (talk) 21:29, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

@Nicola Caione: Owning a physical copy of the image does not automatically transfer copyright to whoever owns the image. We need a permission sent by email coming directly from the copyright holder. In most cases this is the photographer, but if Mrs Parente has acquired the copyright along with the image we need a verification for this. Please see COM:OTRS for more information. De728631 (talk) 22:46, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi, De728631 (talk), I'll contact the image owner and ask for the written authorization. --Nicola Caione (talk) 11:03, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
@De728631: Hi, De728631 (talk), I've sent the permission request via the release generator found on the COM:OTRS web page. I hope now the copyright issue is solved and soon the image will be visible again --Nicola Caione (talk) 16:03, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Work Life BalanceEdit

Hi, De728631 (talk). I've upladed a file [[1]] taken from from a website wich allow the redistribution via the CC-BY-SA 3.0 licence. I would avoid any issue, so please tell me, how can I manage to include it in lavoro agile wiki page?. Thaks for your support. --Nicola Caione (talk) 21:49, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but this seems to be a non-free image which does not fall under the generic CC-BY-SA-3.0 licence of the website. A larger non-free graphic was available online already in 2015, and I don't see how Pongovernance1420 would have gotten a free licence for anyone else to use this image. De728631 (talk) 23:07, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi De728631 (talk), tahnks for the info I'll remove the image now. I've spoken to a pixabay admin that told me I can upload on pictures from that site because they are released as Public Domain under Creative Commons CC0. The picture I would use is: --Nicola Caione (talk) 11:03, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
@Nicola Caione: Good idea. CC-0 from Pixabay is alright. De728631 (talk) 21:44, 18 March 2018 (UTC)


I'm writing to you because you're a sysop on commons. Can you please PLEASE take care of this report in "Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Vandalism"? I opened the same request in "Commons:Administrators' noticeboard" (Other) but it's been ignored for so long by sysops that a bot archieved it and the vandal I'd reported has waited for that to restart editing. I'm waiting for your intervention, thank you in advance! 2A01:7C8:AAAE:2B3:49DF:8C78:3C94:3FB 08:39, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Note to self: Referred to Steinsplitter at Taivo's talk page. De728631 (talk) 14:26, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
As I wrote there, I can't write on his talk page because it's protected, so I pinged him twice, but he didn't answer. Could you please write there in my place to ask him to read what I wrote in Taivo's talk page? I hope this isn't against rules...
2A01:7C8:AAAE:2B3:49DF:8C78:3C94:3FB 16:48, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
OK, I have asked Steinsplitter about investigating the issue. De728631 (talk) 15:29, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks :-)
