Please do not be offended if your images were nominated for deletion or deleted.
There are processes to provide copyright permission
and undelete images which have already been removed.

The fire ate my internet. No kidding. Thankfully it's back on - for now.

pictures removal

Sweetcorn: Why do you think those three images need to be deleted, please? Ellin Beltz (talk) 00:18, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
I need those to be deleted. They are non-enciclopedical. --Sweetcorn (talk) 00:08, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Talk page fixes

This thread was apparently restarted by editing a pre-archive version of the entire page. I have restored the sections below (and deleted one above that’s already in the archive). I was hesitant to delete the archived copy of (the start of) this section, but you may wish to.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 02:42, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Doug Jones

I was given permission to post Doug Jones picture from the Doug Jones Campaign. I've got people calling me from the campaign irate, wanting to know why his picture was removed. Contact me so this can be fixed.—inunotaisho26 (talk)

Hi inunotaisho26, It's super simple... the actual copyright holder fills in the simple email form at COM:OTRS to provide permission to retain the image. When that's approved, the image is restored. As to why "his picture was removed," because you haven't provided the copyright holder's approval to Commons via COM:OTRS. This protects actual creators from people who would upload images and say "I have permission," but don't. Since the campaign wants the image here, it will be easy for them to work with the OTRS admins to fix it. Also, according to the file history, "03:12, 16 October 2017 Jcb deleted page File:Doug Jones for Senate.jpg (No OTRS permission for 30 days)." I've pinged Jcb in case there's additional input. Also of interest is that the files which are still here (File:Doug Jones for Senate.png and File:MoveOn DougJonesEndorsement.png) were uploaded by SecretName101, not inuotaisho26. Do you have more than one account? Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:07, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
The OTRS ticket did not contain any message from the copyright holder. Jcb (talk) 18:29, 20 November 2017 (UTC)


Dear Ellin -- I have just received permission for the photo of Joe Clifford, which you recently deleted in accord with policy. I am submitting an undeletion request. Thank you. Rory1262 (talk) 12:11, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Rory1262: Hopefully you had them send it to COM:OTRS? Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:13, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes. :) (and regrets with regard to "shouting" -- how should I have finessed what I put?) Rory1262 (talk) 22:45, 21 November 2017 (UTC) Rory1262 (talk) 22:45, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
