Hi! I'm one of the admins and bureaucrats here on Wikimedia Commons. If I can help, please leave a message here!.

I work in a spirit of COM:AGF with Commons images for deletion, as well as categorizing and sourcing images.

Please do not be offended if your images were nominated for deletion or even deleted. There are processes to provide copyright permission and undelete even images which have already been removed. If you need a really fast response to a general question, please write at the Village Pump. To contact me, please leave your message

Removed files for the Draft:Pankaj Naram

Hi Ellin Beltz, you deleted files from Draft:Pankaj Naram on 27th April 2016 because draft "was rejected as non-notable". When this draft will be submitted, could you restore this files? Buhram (talk) 20:38, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Buhram: I'm sorry I don't understand your question. The draft was not accepted, the pictures were removed. Are you planning on resubmitting a previously rejected article at en:Wiki? Ellin Beltz (talk) 23:32, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi Ellin Beltz, I hope Draft:Pankaj Naram will be submited, now I'm improving it. Is it possible to restore some photos when article will be submitted? Buhram (talk) 10:23, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

A kitten for you!

Why was "Necromouse.jpg" deleted? Why wasn't a new discussion held at Commons:Deletion_requests/Image:Necromouse.jpg? --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 15:56, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Because it was nominated as a speedy "23 March 2016 . . Smooth O (talk | contribs | block) (1,010 bytes) (Marking as possible copyvio because This is original photo, uploaded before upload on wikipedia." and also on it's upload template was written "I did not take the photo, my friend did, he authorized its release via GFDL but stated he did not want his name associated with it.". Obvious copyvios do not go to Deletion requests. Ellin Beltz (talk) 22:46, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Fotos de Alessandro Sil postas para eliminação

Olá, Ellin Beltz, você colocou fotos de minha autoria para eliminação: Serra das Éguas; Gatos mãe e filho, são fotos tiradas com meu celular. Se você analisar verá que em Serra das Éguas e em O Sobrado do Brejo, tem os metadados iguais. O Sobrado do Brejo, inclusive é uma pintura minha, pois sou artista plástico e tirei a foto do meu próprio quadro, feito em 2003. Gatos, mãe e filho só não têm os mesmos metadados , porque foi feita por mim há algum tempo, por um outro celular. Dou minha palavra: Não irá encontrar em nenhum outro sítio com data anterior. Por isso fico chateado. Chego a pensar que é uma afronta pessoal da sua parte, que insiste em colocar para eliminação, imagens de minha próprio autoria. Espero que reflita, entenda e recue. Saudações. Alessandro Sil (talk) 18:29, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Google translate: Hello, Ellin Beltz, you put photos of my own for disposal: Serra das Mares; Cats mother and child are photos taken with my cell phone. If you look you will see that in Sierra de Mares and Sobrado's Heath, has the same metadata. Sobrado do Brejo, including a painting is mine, because I am an artist and took the photo of my own picture, made in 2003. Cats, mother and son just do not have the same metadata because it was made for me for some time, another phone. I give you my word: you will not find in any other place with an earlier date. So I get upset. I even think it is a personal affront of you who insists on putting to disposal, images of my own authorship. I hope to reflect, understand and retreat. Greetings. Alessandro Sil (talk) 18:29, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Greetings Alessandro Sil: It's not a metadata issue, it's COM:SCOPE. Commons isn't a site to put LOL-cat pictures or personal paintings. Google translate: Saudações: Não é uma questão de metadados, é COM: SCOPE. Commons não é um local para colocar LOL-cat imagens ou pinturas pessoais. Ellin Beltz (talk) 22:45, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
Por favor, eu já percebi que seus argumentos não são nada sensatos e são fora de logica. Fotos, imagens pessoais? Primeiro o Commons é livre e qualquer foto pode ser carregada, desde que sejam 'sob licença livre' ou de autoria própria, segundo, este é uma pintura minha e eu 'liberei' sob a licença que está na descrição. Seu problema é pessoal. Por acaso, você é dono do Commons, para se apoderar tanto assim com argumentos pessoais? Mesmo que não seja questão de metadados, garanto que as fotos são minhas. Se carreguei fotos com direitos reservados é porque ainda não estava por dentro das politicas. Se seu problema é pessoal, lamento e tenho pena de você, então não há mais o que argumentar. Passar bem. Alessandro Sil (talk) 23:03, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Google translate: Please, I realized that their arguments are nothing sensible and are out of logic. Photos, personal images? First the Commons is free and any photo can be uploaded, provided they are 'under license free' or own authorship, second, this is a painting of mine and I 'liberated' under the license is in the description. Your problem is personal. By chance, you own the Commons, to seize so much with personal arguments? Even if it is not a question of metadata, I guarantee that the photos are mine. If carried photos with copyright is because there was not inside the policy. If your problem is personal, I'm sorry and I'm sorry for you, then there is more to argue. Good day.

Greetings Alessandro Sil: Please read COM:L, COM:DW and COM:SCOPE before making any more uploads. It is not true that "any photo can be uploaded", there are limits to what is in scope. This situation is not personal despite your imagining it to be so. Cheers. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:19, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Карол на снимките на сериала "Луна".jpg

I already marked this as a copyvio, why did you tag it again? nyuszika7h (talk) 19:06, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Because something went wrong with the tag coding; it was merely housekeeping. Please notice "14:05, 3 May 2016 Jcb (talk | contribs | block) deleted page File:Карол на снимките на сериала "Луна".jpg (Copyright violation: Not own work, see [" Problem solved. Ellin Beltz (talk) 22:49, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
It was probably because I accidentally substituted it, I was just wondering why you didn't delete it like the other images, but it's deleted now so it doesn't matter. :) nyuszika7h (talk) 07:42, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Ian lewis 2013.jpg

Can you undelete the picture of me you deleted? It's a picture of me, taken on my behalf by a colleague, given to me, and I'm happy for it to be public domain. I wouldn't have put it on the web otherwise. I cannot comprehend how you thought you knew better than I do who owns that image of me.

Dear Ian: Regarding File:Ian lewis 2013.jpg, this is how it was uploaded
|description={{en|1=Portrait image of Ian Lewis at a conference event at Chelsea Football Ground, 2013}}
|author=[[User:Bravo two one|Ian Lewis]]
|other versions=
=={{int:license-header}}== {{self|cc-by-sa-4.0}}
At that time it was claimed as own work, but it's obviously not a selfie. It's too small and too blurry for one thing. Modern cameras held by the subject - or on a tripod - have much sharper lenses and would not produce such a tiny blurry image. That size is fine for LinkedIn (such as you have it) but it's too small even for Facebook and Commons asks for the largest possible version. I'm sure you see that 344x367 is not anywhere near a large version.
The file uploaded here was identical to the image at which is unattributed and bears no indication it is in the public domain or has a cc-by-sa-4.0 license. That website's home page is marked © 2016 University of Cambridge, thus without COM:OTRS permission from the real photographer "taken on your behalf" (not by you). Please also remember our servers are in the United States, read COM:L regarding photo licensing, then have your colleague fill out the 2 minute form at COM:OTRS. If that all works out the administrators at OTRS can restore it without additional upload.
I would point out you had quite a string of photos you uploaded that were all taken by different people, yet labeled own work. Perhaps our upload forms are not clear enough on the topic, or perhaps you skipped reading them prior to hitting "upload", but at this point would you be so kind as to thoroughly read COM:L and have an understanding of what is and what is not own work prior to making more uploads? And since everyone has a phone that takes photos, why not take some pictures for us of the University of Cambridge? Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:15, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

It's a still from a video clip, taken on a DSLR. I'll leave the image deleted as you intended. Not sure how you think you improved the internet. Ian Lewis / Bravo two one (talk) 21:17, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Glaciers and geology

Read you are a geologist so I thought I'd say hello!
