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

File deletionsEdit

@Ellin Beltz. I agree on all deletions. Too many confusing files... I would be grateful if you could delete all 4 files. Thanks and kind regards.--Infideus (talk) 07:46, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

DR archivingEdit

Hi, Could it be that the duplication and imbrication of the closing templates for this DR and the duplicate entries in this list is keeping the the archiving bot from finishing to archive that day? Can it be fixed? -- Asclepias (talk) 06:48, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done @Asclepias Thanks for the headsup!! Ellin Beltz (talk) 14:58, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Bcxfu75k exa.JPGEdit

This has now run 10 days and has had no new discussion in the last four days. I have provided a summary at the end of the discussion. Can this now be closed? - Ahunt (talk) 16:13, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ahunt: Sure, but we wait for someone not us to do it! Maybe Yann or Natuur12 will have a look? Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:15, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Okay, thank you! - Ahunt (talk) 16:22, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done cropping the file should solve the copyright problem. Natuur12 (talk) 16:25, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
That is kind of an odd solution. Sure it no longer shows any copyrighted components, but it is now not a browser screenshot, but simple a picture of a website. What do we do with all the other screenshots of Google Chrome, based on this solution? - Ahunt (talk) 16:32, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
I'd ask Natuur12 that, as he's the closing admin now. Face-wink.svg Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:38, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Okay, will do. - Ahunt (talk) 16:54, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Posted request here in case you would like to offer an opinion. - Ahunt (talk) 17:10, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

File:NGC 1333.jpgEdit

Hi, Ellin!

I'm Alberto Prats Rodríguez, webmaster of AAE (Agrupació Astronòmica d'Eivissa) and also processing author of the image of NGC 1333 I uploaded today. Following this link you can check the image's credits as appeared when NASA published it as APOD on november the 5th. I've received an alert about you requesting its deletion because you doubt it's my own work (though I am its author both personally and also more widely as representative of the AAE) and that it should be sourcing to AAE. I included in the info of the picture that the AAE captured the image using the Cala d'Hort Telescope but didn't include a link (the reason being I didn't see the way to do so in the upload form). I appreciate your help and understand there's been some problem in the way I uploaded or described the image. If you could point to me how to mend the problem or demonstrate in some way I'm its legal representative, I'd do so. Yours, A.P.R.-AAEIVISSA — Preceding unsigned comment added by AAEIVISSA (talk • contribs)
PS: By the way, this is the second time I upload something to Wikimedia and also the first time I discuss something about it, so please forgive me if I'm not following the correct procedure.

Hi AAEIVISSA: I just withdrew my nomination at Commons:Deletion requests/File:NGC 1333.jpg based on my promise to work with you on the details of filling in the file templates. It's really easy to edit file templates after upload.
Click here for larger version
This image shows the edit and history positions on every page and also a reasonably well filled out template. The way to put in the information after the upload is to go to the correct page, push "Edit" and then go into the file template itself.
On your file:
  • I added Wikilinks inside the description and moved up the text about the telescope from below the template to the end of the description. The description is what the search engines use to find the images, you can be lengthy in describing what you see and how it was made here.
  • Then I added the link to the APOD source as well.
  • Next, I changed around the categories you had from under the description to outside the "int:filesec" template section. They usually go below the "int"license-header" section, after any other tags and with all the other categories. I also searched "NGC 1333" and found we had other images of this and added "Category:NGC 1333" which takes the user to the rest of the images.
  • To help the sister project, I went over to Wikipedia and made sure they had a "Commonscat|NGC 1333" tag so that users of the encyclopedia can find the category of all images.
I think I am done editing this image and also removed the "no permission" tag that another of your images had acquired. Please leave any questions you may have here, or on your talk page. If the latter please use {{u|Ellin Beltz}} somewhere in your comment or talk page. That causes a system notification and clickable link instantly. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:47, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Ellin Beltz, lots of thanks for all your help and work! I take note of all the changes and corrections you've made and will also update my user information to avoid further problems. I've seen you helped me with the comet video I uploaded, which was also nominated for deletion because of my inexperience. Thanks again! — Preceding unsigned comment added by AAEIVISSA (talk • contribs) 18:24, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

files: paintings of grzegorz stecEdit

Permission mails are on the same day sent, when I gave the paintings to wikipedia. Ruessen-Kleinstorckwitz (talk) 07:45, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ruessen-Kleinstorckwitz: The files were retained and your OTRS was received. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:09, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Flag of North Mexicorea.JPGEdit

The word "jihad" did not directly refer to anyone who commented on that deletion request, but rather to two other users who got bees in their bonnet on the subject of "special or fictional flags", and went on indiscriminate rampages against them, and thereby stirred up much turbulence and turmoil which pretty much ended badly all around. Unfortunately, BrightRaven used the same modus operandi in making his deletion nomination as one of the bees-in-bonnet users (now blocked) did, and refused to give any assurances that he would not go on an indiscriminate rampage -- so unfortunately BrightRaven is a moderately annoying person from my point of view ... AnonMoos (talk) 15:02, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi AnonMoos: I'd suggest that if someone else is "wrong" it is not best course of action to take second "wrong" action to attempt to change anything. There is some quote about how "two wrongs a right do not make." I realize that deletion nominations can get heated, but I still request courtesy and professionalism in all discussions, not religiously charged words which only further inflame situations to which no fire is needed for solution. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:49, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Penetke photo deletionEdit

Dear Ms Beltz, May I know the reason why you suggest the removal of my uploaded photos? Sincerely yours, Pal Toth — Preceding unsigned comment added by Penetke (talk • contribs) 10:49, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Penetke: Please see Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Penetke. That has the explanation and is where the discussion is supposed to take place. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:07, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

File source is not properly indicated: File:Wiki wyatt comp.JPGEdit

Ellin Beltz, I am very confused as to why you nominated my two files, Wiki wyatt comp and Wiki wyatt comps to be deleted. These files do have the correct source and license. However if you go to the attached page you can see that the two comparison photos were uploaded and are being used only in a "talk" discussion as to decide whether a photo that I added of Wyatt Earp is legitimate or not. The caption under these comparison photos states "Comparison photos for wiki users only. Not for public viewing" OSMOND PHILLIPS (talk) 18:57, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi OSMOND PHILLIPS: There is no such thing as "not for public viewing" of an image on Commons and composite images are required to have each image uploaded separately (with proper source). Then you can use them anywhere on the project by creating a minigallery of all the images. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:09, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
