photo permissionEdit

Hi, Regarding this picture [1] The permissions are coming from the same person in the picture, he sent us by the OTRS system his identity card and letter of authorisation. --Bachounda (talk) 04:12, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

File:Marah Jabr.jpgEdit

Hi Dr-Taher, why did you tag this image as copyvio? The source states CC-0. Or do you mean that the source is not realiable? --Túrelio (talk) 20:53, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

The same question for File:Mia Khalifa.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 20:55, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio, Regarding the first picture, the source stated that (All Right Reserved), look at the bottom of this link [2]. For the second picture, the user wrote the same previous source, besides it was previously deleted for copyvio, look at this. Thanks for you. --Dr-Taher (talk) 21:14, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
O.k., now I understand your rationale. However, with regard to the "All Right Reserved", this is a misunderstanding of yours. As the cited source is a stock-image website, the "All Right Reserved" refers to their website content in general, whereas the copyright-status of the presented image is shown immediately besides the image. The claimed CC-0 license may still be wrong (for example due to untrustful uploader), however this needs solid evidence.
With regard to the previous deletion(s): these were different images, despite the identical name. So, they cannot be applied to the current image. However, the fact that images of this woman have been deleted in the past should raise our attention. --Túrelio (talk) 21:24, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for this explanation, It's your duty to assure that the uploader did NOT violate copyrights. Thank you. --Dr-Taher (talk) 21:29, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi Túrelio, Please look at the comments here by "Tm" about " license laundry attempt". Thank you. --Dr-Taher (talk) 22:13, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi, yeah. That's what I hinted above as a possibility. However, it's better to treat that in a regular deletion-request, as it may lead finally to judge "" generally as an unreliable source. --Túrelio (talk) 06:58, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2017 is open!Edit

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2017 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in R2.

Dear Dr-Taher,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2017 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the twelfth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2017) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top 2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2017.

Round 2 will end on 22 July 2018, 23:59 UTC.

Click here to vote now!

User:Pi bot on ar.wpEdit

Hi, I see that you blocked ar:User:Pi bot because its username implies that it is a bot. That's because it is a bot. ;-) It doesn't edit on arwp, though, the account was auto-created when it accessed pages there to get the wikidata ID for them. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 16:16, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello, Mike Peel, according to the account name policy it is not permitted. If you want to use it in arwiki you can ask for the flag of bot. --Dr-Taher (talk) 11:28, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Tuğba Ekinci, 2013.jpgEdit

I already split this file once because of our guideline on overwriting images and moved your version to a new title. There is even a notice about this in the file information template. The new version can be be found here: File:Tuğba Ekinci, 2013 (cropped).jpg. I have reverted your most recent upload on the full picture. Do not overwrite it again or your editing privileges will be revoked. --Majora (talk) 03:34, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

@Majora:, Thanks for your effort. But the history of that image is wrong now, it states that I created it on (29 Sept 2018), and this is wrong. So could you solve this. Thanks. --Dr-Taher (talk) 11:19, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
That's the date of upload. Which is correct. The date in the information summary says 7 March 2014. There is nothing to correct. --Majora (talk) 16:55, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Your account has been blockedEdit

You were warned to not do this and yet you did so again. After your block expires do not overwrite files against COM:OVERWRITE. If you do so afterwards your account will be blocked for a much longer period of time. --Majora (talk) 20:57, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Hello @Majora:, Could you please review your comment above. You said: (Do not overwrite it again or your editing privileges will be revoked). You mention that file only. You don't say (Don't overwrite" any file)!. Also you didn't mention that "If I overwrite any file I will be blocked"! So I ask for unblock my account. Thanks. --Dr-Taher (talk) 02:54, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
Even this argument shows the user will probably continue to do after the block what he has done until now, IMHO of course. Dr Taher a friendly advice to you, do not try to censure Commons. See you in a week. --E4024 (talk) 03:01, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
You were already given a link to COM:OVERWRITE and you ignored it. You not only ignored the first split and reoverwrote that file again causing more work for admins here you then did it to multiple other files. You either didn't read the guideline or you did read it and ignored it. Either way, you are causing damage to Commons and work for admins here. You hold advanced permissions on other projects I would expect you to do the same for anyone causing damage to the projects you are a sysop on. I will not unblock you and I will object to any formal unblock request. Take the week to actual read our guideline on the matter. Do not create more work for people here once your block expires. --Majora (talk) 04:42, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
@Majora:. I think there is misunderstanding. When you comment (Do not overwrite it again), I thought you refere to that paricular image, not a genaral case. As I use the "Crop-tool", its default case is to overwrite the file. I overwrite the other file as I think it is a minor correction. I didn't intend to violate policies or cause more work for admins. Anyway I hope you understand my opinion. (I'm not sure if my comment is clear in English or not, as English language is not my mother tongue). Thanks for you. --Dr-Taher (talk) 05:23, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Request for UnBlockEdit

Unblock request granted

This blocked user asked to be unblocked, and one or more administrators has reviewed and granted this request.

Request reason: "Hello, I will write in Arabic to be clear. So please ask an Arabic Admin to review my request. If there is no Arabic admin, tell me to rewrite the reason in English. الزميل الذي قام بمنعي ذكر في سبب المنع (الكتابة فوق الملفات رغم التنبيه المتكرر) في حين أنه لم يكن هناك سوى تنبيه واحد فقط وليس متكررا كما ذكر. كما أنه في تنبيهه كتب (لا تكرر الكتابة فوق هذا الملف) ففهمت من تنبيهه أنه يقصد ملفا محددا، وليس تنبيها عاما لكل الملفات. ثم ذكر في تعليقه لاحقا أنني تسببت في جهد للإداريين للقيام بفصل الملفات، وللعلم أنا قمت بالكتابة فوق ملف آخر لأنني أرى أن تعديلي هو "تعديل طفيف" وفق ما تنص عليه السياسة، وعموما فلن أكرر الكتابة فوق أية ملف مرة ثانية في المستقبل. أرى أن فترة المنع لمدة أسبوع كبيرة جدا ولا تفترض "حسن النية" مع مستخدم مثلي فأنا إداري في ويكيبيديا العربية، ولم ولن أتعمد الإساءة. شكرا لسعة صدركم."
Unblock reason: "Majora's rationale was correct. There have been multiple notices ([3], [4]) regarding your cropping of files. Further, your recent (2019) history indeed demonstrates inappropriate cropping overwrites (e.g., File:Yasmeen Alkhateeb.png, File:Tuğba Ekinci, 2013.jpg (deleted revision) and File:سما المصري -3.jpg). You may well have genuinely believed the changes minor ("تعديل طفيف"), but they unambiguously were not; accordingly, that poor or misaligned judgment in this regard was indeed causing damage. As blocks are preventative, not punitive, the block was not without support and was not done in bad faith (frankly, as an admin on a sister project, you are expected to be aware that AGF applies to intent; good intentions with disruptive outcomes are every bit as damaging as bad intentions with disruptive outcomes. Blocks merely prevent the outcome--here, inappropriate overwrites--and do not comment on motives.) That said, you've committed to discontinue ("عموما فلن أكرر الكتابة فوق أية ملف مرة"), which resolves the issue. If you do return to overwriting, I trust you will consider COM:OVERWRITE and that it applies to all files going forward. Эlcobbola talk 20:58, 28 February 2019 (UTC)"

Thanks @Elcobbola:, for unblocking my account and for this explaination. (You remind me by that overwrite which I made 3 years ago). --Dr-Taher (talk) 21:12, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
