About File:Foto da atriz brasileira Helena Ritto.jpgEdit

Deletion of photographic material relating to Frank Stilwell, Humphrey McQueen and Patrick Troy (Australia)Edit

[[File:Frank Carbone with volunteers on Georges River, in Western Sydney.jpg File:Patrick Troy.png File:The student campaign to save Political Economy from amalgamation with Government, 2011.jpg File:Stilwell lecturing on Inequality at the University of Sydney 2018.jpg File:Frank Stilwell at Political Economy Society May 2017.jpg File:Political Economy Conference 1976 Sydney.jpg File:Humphrey McQueen HM 2017.jpg File:Frank Stilwell at Sydney Uni.jpg File:Frank Stilwell at Political Economy Society.jpg]]

Hi there, all of these photos are my own work, I am a researcher in the Sydney area, and have provided my time to improve awareness around a range of academic areas. In particular, it is important that Frank Stilwell's page be restored, as I have spent many hours collating photographs to raise awareness of the very specific history of political economy at the university of Sydney. Patrick Troy and Humphrey McQueen are two other intellectuals, who's memory and legacy are supported by photographic documentation. If you have a more substantial issue, could you please make this explicit.

I am the owner of all the deleted material listed.

Deletion of LOGO EVS DE 4C.jpgEdit

Would you be so kind and explain me why you deleted the file LOGO EVS DE 4C.jpg from the Wiki-Page of the Evangelischer Verein für die Schneller Schulen?

File:Gaston sleeping in the marsupilamis' nest.pdfEdit

Hello, About the permission for this file, i am not knowledgeable on the issue. Can you tell me more? I did a vectorized version of the original drawing on Illustrator. The original drawing was in low resolution and I spent some time adjusting it (vector points, colors, etc.) It is not exactly the same as the original, as each vector point is not faithfully replicating the drawing nor could it never achieve it. If someone takes a high res photo of a famous painting for example, is that their own art? are they allowed to put that photo on wikipedia? is my case different? Aren't we in a gray zone?

File:((Insola-de-Porta-Comasina)).jpg and File:((Insola de Porta Comasina i.a.)).pdfEdit


File:((Insola-de-Porta-Comasina)).jpg And also:

File:((Insola de Porta Comasina i.a.)).pdf

Dear Zelenko,

please delete the file with the extension .pdf, (which I have put on Wikipedia as first, for my mistake), and leave in Wikipedia the image with the extension .jpg.

Both files refer to the same image, but the .jpg is more clear and suitable for Wikipedia.

For what concerns the ownership of the image, I can say that the image File: ((Insola-de-Porta-Comasina)).jpg is a photo which I took from a document of year 1720-23 which is kept in the "Archivio di Stato" of Milano, a department of the Italian Ministero dei Beni Culturali (MIBAC).

Prior to uploading this image in Wikipedia, I got a written permission for this publication by the Director of said "Archivio di Stato", as I have clearly written below my photo. Reproduction of this historical material is allowed by Italian law if such reproduction is made for general information, like encyclopedies and son on, and people has not to pay for viewing it. Of course, people can read Wikipedia free of charge, and Wikipedia is a cultural institution.

Dear Zelenko, in the meantime I made a check in Wikipedia at the item: "Archivio di Stato di Milano" and I found that in this site there is a file which belongs to the same series of mine, that is: For this reason I have upload anew my File:((Insola-de-Porta-Comasina)).jpg, adding the same license tag that is used in the Wikipedia "Archivio di Stato di Milano", that is: CC-BY-SA 4.0. I have added more information about the source of my file, inclusive the URL for the said "Archivio di Stato" di Milano:, where everybody can access to the original document. I believe that my file is in the public domain, because the "Archivio di Stato di Milano" has given everybody the access to it in its Website. For this reason, please delete my first two uploads (That is:((Insola de Porta Comasina i.a.)).pdf and ((Insola-de-Porta-Comasina)).jpg, both with the wrong tag) and eventually cancel my LAST image from the list of possible deletion. If I made petty errors in some information I wrote, please correct it (this is my first upload of images, and it is rather a hard work for me). Thank you and best regards.

Now you listed the logo of the German-Polish Research Institute for deletion. This consists of the written names in Polish and German, plus two coloured rectangles linked by a bows. To me, that is a logo consisting of simplest forms. The institute who created it was closed in 2019 and cannot be contacted. If you still see a problem, delete it. I understand that the photo I indeed took myself of the event in which took place president Gauck would have to be deleted too after all, as the logo of the institute is visible behind him (as ist the logo of two universities) God knows whether perhaps anyone has the rights on the design of the lectern he is using on the photo. Sorry - if one as a beginner in Wikipedia cannot get any assistance in using pictures in advance and has to get through endless texts before being told that anyway there might be problems everyway, than why does Wikipedia not just stop telling authors to illustrate their contributions? This is exactly what I will be doing now.

Logo doesn't look too trivial for me. I don't think that institute preparedness without trace: some entity should "inherit" assets. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:02, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

There are lots of uploads from people in Category:Verified accounts that don't have an OTRS ticket mentioned at the file. However, there are also files like this.

The album was released on a major label, it is freely available on all streaming services, it's verifiable on AllMusic, is it not considered public domain? As far as I'm aware the cover was created by the artist or the record label. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by LawknQee (talk • contribs) 17:26, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, availability of image on Internet doesn't mean that its terms of use are comparable with Commons:Licensing. However, you could upload non-free media into projects that allow it, for example, English Wikipedia. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 22:37, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

Dear Eugene, It's very bad idea to delete this picture of Thomas Savy. I think it's a real own work from the one which uploaded it. All his contributions are very pertinent. Missing EXIF is not enough to delete this picture as you propose.

File:Various ;DEdit

Dear Eugene, hello there, thanks for your volunteer work ;D I left a comment below various pictures flagged for deletion that come from the Digital Young Academies, wikidata project. There's been some talk about this in commons and elsewhere so I followed the suggestions and have *not* submitted OTRS requests at the request of our friends at OTRS - and instead uploaded directly from the site of the academy of science (which had a media collector from which the copyright holders/photographers uploaded the pictures to gain a CC-BY-40 license). So this method was arrived at and has been applied for about 1500 other prize-winning scholars: Happy to clarify any questions, I'm also always learning. Thanks..

File:Solomas logo .png was recently deletedEdit

Hi, You explained me well why the "File:2 siecles de savoir faire dans les mains de ces 7 médaillés photo Bruno Bebert (2).jpg" may be deleted. Thank you But I don't understand why the File:Solomas logo .png will be deleted. This is a logo that my boss (she is the designer and have the all rights on this logo) ask me to put in the article. Can you give me some advice that it will not be deleted please?

Bonjour Eugene,

J'ai vu que tu avais supprimé le logo de la page FFAB. Cela fait des années que je n'avais pas ré-essayé de mettre une image sur une page wiki. Je crois que maintenant, je sais que je n'en rajouterai plus. Elles sont systématiquement supprimées, même si je prend moi-même une photo. Je ne comprends pas les conditions sont impossibles à remplir correctement, j'en arrive à me demander comment il y a encore des images sur Wikipédia ! Ce n'est pas un reproche personnel, mais une remarque, malgré des années de wiki. Du coup, je ne comprends pas pourquoi d'autres logos sont OK sur d'autres pages. :-( Merci, au revoir. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Slym-Peter (talk • contribs) 13:36, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

Pictures by PPEscientistEdit

Hoi, you have marked a large amount of pictures that have been send by the people involved to the Global Young Academy to be used for this particular purpose. My problem is that it seems that you have marked them all even when there is no issue. The people involved are all scientists, one of the pictures is the dean of a US legal university department.. So I am pretty sure we will get a solution probably other pictures for where this is indeed necessary.

Work is done to get this sorted. But be more precise why an individual picture is deemed deletable. Thanks, GerardM (talk) 12:00, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

Гербы БелоруссииEdit

Добрый день. Посоветовали обратиться к вам User talk:A.Savin#Переименование файла, там же и суть обращения к вам. Валко (talk) 13:49, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Извиняюсь, но поскольку не являюсь специалистом в геральдике, то хочу уточнить: основной признак - текст девиза на белорусском языке? Надо было бы ещё поправить подписи к изображениям в статьях. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:09, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
be:Герб Беларускай ССР.
  • 1919 — 1927 название файла Герб Социалистической Советской Республики Белоруссии.

  • 1927 — 1937 название файла Emblem of the Byelorussian SSR (1927).

  • 1937 — 1938 название файла Emblem of the Byelorussian SSR (1926-1937).

  • 1938 — 1949

  • Вопрос откуда в названии файла Emblem of the Byelorussian SSR (1926-1937), появился 1926? [1] Валко (talk) 14:30, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
    Год точно некорректен, но кроме этого имелась разница: с 1927 - «Пролятары ўсіх краін, злучайцеся!», с 1937 - «Пролетарыі ўсіх краін, злучайцеся!». Т. е. и 1927 в названии файла - некорректен. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:36, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
    да в девизе тоже разница, но это нужно обращаться к графистам. Валко (talk) 14:50, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
    Так какое же имя будет правильным? Только 1937? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:52, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
    Да, или 1937-1938, на ваше усмотрение, но 1926, это ошибка. Мое личное мнение 1937. Принят в 1937. Валко (talk) 15:06, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
    Так вы переименуете File:Emblem of the Byelorussian SSR (1926-1937).svg в File:Emblem of the Byelorussian SSR (1937).svg? Валко (talk) 13:31, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
    Переименую, но надо же прийти к окончательному варианту :-) Думаю, что вариант 1937-1938 - более корректный. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:14, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
    Да, согласен. Тут точно понятно официальный срок 1937-1938. Про этот тоже не забудьте File:Bssr gerb 1926 1937.png Валко (talk) 15:36, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
    Сделано. Надо будет попросить создать изображение для 1927-1937 годов, а также внести исправления в статьи. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:44, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
    Спасибо. А это File:Emblem of the Byelorussian SSR (1927).svg разве не 1927-1937? Только девиз исправить по источнику. Валко (talk) 15:52, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
    Сделано. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:58, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

    Why are you erroneously deleting content from Commons?Edit

    Do you mind explaining to me why in the world you deleted my upload of a screenshot of the Windows 10 Mobile Home Screen? And furthermore, why did you delete it because "it was a screenshot of unfree content?" The current screenshot on the Windows 10 Mobile Wikipedia page is also of "unfree content," the only difference is that that screenshot is of very poor resolution and should not be used!

    I would appreciate it very much that if you have difficulties understanding the English language, and reading descriptions for images, you refrain from playing admin and meddling in affairs not within your skill range.

    I want you to restore the image. And, if not, be prepared to be reported. I have no idea what it is you do on Wikipedia, but clearly, it is not to do what is expected of Wikipedia contributors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Polancox (talk • contribs) 13:41, 5 July 2020 (UTC) Polancox (talk) 13:43, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

    Could you please explain why PDF on Commons is better then wiki-text on Italian Wikibooks? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:01, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
    Both are hosted here in Commons, if you check it. This is a PDF version of my book whose text is hosted on Wikibooks. I fixed a graphic glitch on this file, nothing that requires a step forward from version 1.2 to version 1.3. Unfortunately I can't do these things by myself because this PDF's size is greater than 100MB so I can't use the "upload a new version of this file" function, because the new Wizard can't handle file replacing. So I have to disturb other people here and give quite a lot of explainations of why I'm asking to replace a PDF version of my book made by me with a fixed bersion of the same my PDF version of the same my book also made by me. I know I have to give quite a lot of explainations, but this is frustrating... No worries, this is not the first time I have to start a long explaination... :( Roberto Segnali all'Indiano 15:10, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

    La ringrazio molto per la sua tempestiva comunicazione, tuttavia nonostante abbia più volte riletto il testo, non sono riuscito a capire quale sia la problematica che mi manifesta e soprattutto come poter e dover fare per sistemare la cosa. Resta inoltre il fatto che non conoscendo l'inglese e la pagina di rimando che lei mi ha cortesemente inviato è totalmente in lingua non italiana. Conseguentemente mi è sostanzialmente impossibile intervenire su quanto da lei richiesto. La prego di spiegarmi con molta semplicità e pazienza perchè non sono molto pratico nell'uso del computer. Qualora ritenga opportuno fare lei stesso le modifiche o ne abbia la possibilità o la pazienza di aiutarmi in questo mi faccia cortesemente sapere. Ringraziando per la sua disponibilità la saluto cordialmente --Palocar (talk) 17:56, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

    Most of my published picture are painting. they are remain in many china temple and being collected by a chinese budhist master in 16th century and they are free to use . As law I see in common wikimedia, publish an own painting in history or a person which died 100 years ago is legal. I think it is not fair when you deteled most of my publish picture.

    Update: Thanks Eugene. I will continue to look for the exact source of the File:Record of the death of Reginald Robert Grindlay.jpg, but with regards to the File:Grindlay Cadet Branch Arms.svg, I am not sure what else I should do if the file is of my own creation on my own computer and I want to freely publish it on Wikimedia Commons? — Preceding unsigned comment added by AndrewFletcher (talk • contribs) 15:52, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

    If coat of arms is based on historical image, it's Commons:Derivative works. I think correct solution will be to put license for original design. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:19, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

    Update: Hi Eugene, the image isn't based on a historical image, it is based on a description of the coat of arms in Wriothesley's Chevrons Part I by Sir Thomas Wriothesley (C.1525) which I have referenced in description. Will that suffice? — Preceding unsigned comment added by AndrewFletcher (talk • contribs) 16:51, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

    Sure, in this case, it's your own work. But please clarify that image is based on textual description. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 12:49, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
    Ok great. I have amended the description to make it clear the image is based on a textual description. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AndrewFletcher (talk • contribs) 13:13, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

    RE: Copyright for Carleton University picturesEdit


    I am writing with extreme concern over your decision to flag several historical photographs from Carleton University's Wikipedia page that I uploaded several months ago.

    I am relatively unfamiliar with how copyright works on Wikimedia, and I am confident that the pictures selected are justified for fair use given that they have been made publicly available by the Archives and Special Collections office at Carleton University on the Internet Archive for several years now:

    If this does not satisfy you, I am asking if it is at all possible for you to delay the deletion of the files you flagged on my Talk page so I can seek further clarity from the office itself.

    In any case, I would have appreciated a degree of clarity from you as to how I could claim fair use, given that these were taken from digital commons directly set up by the institution itself.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Что конкретно нужно сделать?Edit

    Здравствуйте, Евгений.

    Я являюсь автором данных изображений, что я и указал в лицензии. Какие мне от себя, для своих их же файлов, нужно предоставить разрешения? Не кажется ли вам ситуация абсурдной?

    Вот эти файлы я хотел бы оставить, к другим у меня нет интереса.

    ДМ (talk) 16:56, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

    Эти фотографии - w:ru:Производное произведение. Смотроите также Commons:Derivative works. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:19, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
    Посмотрел. Мне что нужно указать в лицензии, что фотографии сделаны мной? И как быть с этими изображениями, которые я сам делал, на свой мобильный, и которые не являются предметом искусства и на них не распространяется авторское право?

    Вот эти:

    ДМ (talk) 14:15, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

    Почему Вы так считаете? Все эти логотипы нетривиальны по дизайну. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:18, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
    Ну хотя бы потому-что, это просто ленты, которые продаются в магазинах. Это не авторские работы и у них нет модельера, который их разработал. А фотографии делались на масонских собраниях, либо я просил, что-бы меня на мой телефон сфотографировали, либо сам фотографировал. На какого автора я в таком случае должен ссылаться, если фотография сделана лично мной, да ещё и вещи не являющейся предметом искусства. Вам не кажется, что требования слишком завышены, к обычным, в общем-то, вещам? ДМ (talk) 14:52, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
    Трудно отнести дизайн, например, File:Lodge of Perfection Pythagoras HCRF.jpg к обычным вещам. Может это и не предмет искуства, но тем не менее, достаточно сложен. Поэтому и нужно разрешение автора. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 12:59, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
    Если нужно разрешение автора фотографии, то я его даю. Если автора, кто разработал логотип, то в данном случае я представил фотографию, не сам логотип. Фотографировать логотипы не запрещено. К тому же, я его использую в тематической статье, он представлен как один из вариантов логотипов и вообще штандартов ложи совершенствования. Я не пойму в чём здесь нарушение, ведь я не использую логотип в коммерческих или иных целях, я лишь указываю в статье, что это штандарт ложи совершенствования Пифагор № 6 ВСРФ.ДМ (talk) 14:28, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
    А с этими файлами что не так? Что, уже нельзя одежду фотографировать и значки?

    Вот это просто фотографии документов File:Patent GLdF-UGLR.jpg, File:Patent Upiter.jpg, которые дают определённые права. В них нет никаких признаков авторского права и не может быть, ибо они заполняются от руки, а не выставляются в качестве бессмертных полотен в музеях. Неужели так сложно отличить рабочий документ-стандартный бланк от произведения искусства? ДМ (talk) 14:37, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

    Вы прочитали w:ru:Производное произведение и Commons:Derivative works? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:53, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
    Да, прочитал, и не увидел того, за что вы выставили данные файлы на удаление и какие требования предъявили к ним ко всем без разбора. Файлы все разные, не однотипные, не являются произведениями искусства (это вы так трактуете правила), не обладают авторским правом, ибо являются просто одеждой, в одном случае, либо являются стандартными бланками документов. По остальным, я не увидел, что кто-то предъявил свои права на авторство к этим изображениям. Поэтому, считаю, что вы должны убрать шаблон требующий подтверждение авторства или повелевающий получить разрешение от автора на использование его работы, тогда как лента на костюме не является работой модельера и продаётся в магазинах соответствующей экипировки. Изображения лент взяты не с сайтов интернет-магазинов, а сфотографированы лично мной. Посему, я даю разрешение на публикацию этих изображений. Вопрос в том, кому я даю это разрешение, самому себе? Вам не кажется, что вы ситуацию доводите до абсурда? ДМ (talk) 15:03, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
    Сфотографированные символы не являются тривиальными по дизайну. Вы не являетесь их автором. Соответственного Вашего разрешения недостаточно. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:08, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

    Your message to RobiquetGobley 2020/08/11 re to two imagesEdit

    Hello Eugene

    thanks for hands up

    a) file Theodore Gobley this is a digital version of own family original photographic document, Theodore Gobley being one of my grand-grand-grandfathers ; the original picture is my possession (as you can guess my pseudo RobiquetGobley directly relates to that) I will check how to properly update the license declaration now the WikiMLedia Commons directions applicable to such a case (own family document created 150 years ago) are not crystal clear...

    please don't delete that

    b) file Galabert's canal this is indeed a derived document from the original map by Galabert in French State Archives ; it is modified by myself from a raw copy published by a newspaper in France in 1962 (Revue Pyrénées) ; the copy itself was given me by a local scholar over 20 years ago and only his notes mention the 1962 date which does not appear on the copy itself; the review has probably disappeared as was but may have o continuator of some sort see infra I am quite uncertain how to properly update the license declaration ; I will recheck with the Commons directions and try to contact the publishing review (if still extant; there is one review with a similar name but it may actually be a later phoenix company (Pyrénées Magazine), I just wrote to their Chief Editor

    in the meantime, I suggest not to delete it, it may take some time , there is no stake on such a material (of by the way really poor quality) ; now in your hands to decide

    I will keep you updated

    Addendum : looking for the original publisher, it comes out it did disappear and all its publishing material has been turned into the Public domain and made web-available by GALLICA in France; I will update the licence to public domain — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robiquetgobley (talk • contribs) 17:31, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

    Hello, I have updated the Galabert doc to public domain and linked to authoring database; I have updated the Gobley file to RobiquetGobley authorship Regards RobiquetGobley — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robiquetgobley (talk • contribs) 19:26, 11 August 2020 (UTC)Robiquetgobley (talk) 19:40, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

    Public domain images should have proper public domain tag. You could just edit file description to fix problem.
    According to Commons:Copyright rules by territory/France map could not be in public domain.

    Hello Eugene I checked on the France rules Map itself is in the public domain, Galabert did it self financed in 1835 so it was his own property, and he died in 1841 I will readdress the public domain tag, not sure I get what is not correct regards RobiquetGobley07:24, 13 August 2020 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robiquetgobley (talk • contribs) 07:24, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

    Lord Alfred MilnerEdit

    The pictures nominated for deletion on August 10th & 12th, under my name, are mostly photographs from books, and a few from the internet, that are over 100 years old. Although I reside in the US, and most of the pictures are UK in origin, UK jurisdiction should prevail. Given their age, and the fact that many are in the public domain because they were UK Government property, and as such, exempt from private property rights (I read this somewhere), they will be legitimate once the proper coding is added.

    My problem is: 1. I have to verify the source of each of them, and 2. I have to code them right. This is the first time I've uploaded pictures, and everything is difficult. Is there a quick video link of instructions on this that you can send me? I will do my best to change things, put please be patient.
