Hello I saw that you contacted me abiut the maps I made about the airline destinations. I entirely made those by my self. The maps that were used were also found on Wikipedia commons and I just edited them and added the destinations. I do not see how there is anything related to copyright. Hopefully I would appreciate if we can resolve this issue.

Your own statements are contradictory. If maps are based on existing templates, they are not your own work. You need to mention source and also follow originals' licenses requirements. Claiming exclusive copyrights is copyright violation. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:41, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

On my understanding Piwigo is software used on that web site. You should investigate terms of use for photos. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:57, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

The use of photos from this website, which I was a moderator and editor for a year, is carried out under the terms of the license specified by Piwigo, on which the whole forum is created. This is a GNU license and only the author of the photo is required. In addition, I would like to add that Grazyna Drzewiecka gave me permission to use all her photos if I need to. I informed her on what terms are photos published in Wikipedia Commons. Can you kindly tell me how to put a preview of the conversation with her on the Messengerze Polish language. I have a clear agreement there. What applies to all three photos you are asking about, on 9/11/2018. both authors sent an e-mail with consents to the following address: LukeEmski (talk) 00:12, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Physical copy ownership doesn't assume copyrights ownership. See also Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Ecuador. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:56, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Please do not delete the following files that I have uploaded except for one (File:Gatazo.pdf.pdf) to Wikipedia Common because every photo of General Juan Francisco Morales Llerena is in the Public Domain because the photos were made in the late 1800's and early 1900's and, therefore, it is in the Public Domain in the United States because the pictures were taken before 1923 and, in Ecuador, because it has been more than 70 years since the pictures were made.

The File: El TelegrafoDelHomenajeGenMorales.pdf was taken off the Internet. The only thing the newspaper El Telegrafo requested that El Telegrafo be given full credit for the article which I have done in the reference section of General Morales Llerena's Wikipedia page.

File:LBNCCE-Alfaro-2313-PUBCOM (1).pdf - This document was published in 1897 in Quito, Ecuador. This document was stamped in blue on the front cover of the document "El Bliblioteca Nacional del Ecuador en Quito, Ecuador". This document is in the Public Domain in the United States because it was printed before 1923. It is in Public Domain in Ecuador because in Ecuador:

Copyright expires 70 years after death of copyright owner. Copyright of anonymous or pseudonymous works expires 70 years after first publication.

The document was fully documented in the Reference Section of the General Morales Llerena's Wikipedia page.

File:Gatazo.pdf.pdf - The book "La Guerra Civil de Ecuatoriana de 1895" and written by Elias Vicuna Munoz is NOT Public Domain because he died in 1997 or 70 years have not passed after the author's death for it to be within Ecuadorean Public Domain.

All the photos and jpg files of Juan Francisco Morales Llerena are legally my property under Besides the jpg files of Juan Francisco Morales Llerena are in the U.S. Public Domain laws and are in the Ecuadorian Public Domain because it has been over 70 years since the photos were taken in the late 1800's. These files are as follows:

File:Colonel Juan Francisco Morales Llerena.jpg File:Gen. Juan F. Morales Llerena.jpg File:General Juan Francisco Morales Llerena.jpg

The three files that follow:

File:Mensaje del Presidente about GenMoralesPagina274.pdf File:Mensaje del Presidente about GenMoralesPagina275.pdf File:Mensaje del Presidente about GenMoralesPagina276.pdf

were published before 1923 and are in the public domain in the United States and in Ecuador because the material in the above three files were printed in 1907. In fact, the copy of the book wherein the above three files came from states the following:

"NABU Public Domain Reprints:

You are holding a reproduction of an original work published before 1923 that is in public domain in the United States of America, and possibly other countries. You may copy and distribute this work as no entity (individual or corporate) has a copyright on the body of the work. This book may contain prior copyright references, and library stamps (as most of these works were scanned from library copies). These have been scanned and retained as part of the historical artifact."

The only file that I can ascertain that might not be in the public domain is the File:Gatazo.pdf.pdf. If it gets deleted, then I can live with it in as much as I would not like to lose it. If you have any questions about what I have written, please let me know.

request for assistance on Lmm1245 potential file deletionEdit


I am new to this, so I am not fully clear what details must be provided for adding photos that I own. For the two in question, the USS Vernon County and the USS Tom Green County, I am the owner and I possess the original slides. The pictures were taken by my father while in the Marines. They are of a training mission while stationed in Okinawa, Japan.

Given the numbers on the side of the ships, there is no question what ships they are. Please advise what else I need to provide to avoid the files from being deleted. I believe they are some of the best pictures of these ships in the public domain, and many people will enjoy them.

Thank you,

Mass DeletionEdit

Greetings. I have gotten an alarming amount of alerts from Wikipedia, which isn't the most helpful things. All the files I uploaded are mine. I made them in Photoshop or made them in a music creator app that I paid for with my own money. Also, a fictional state with a questionable notability? This is directly from this link [2] , "A sandbox is a testing environment that isolates untested code changes and outright experimentation from the production environment or repository". My own user sandbox is for experimentation. I don't see why deleting files I made myself for amusement, comical emotions, etc is really necessary. I'd really like to know why the files I uploaded are being "mass-deleted". For what? I don't know, but it's not needed and unnecessary. Eugene, can you explain why you are deleting the files? I'm sorry if I didn't place the license, but what was the reason to place those deletion templates?

--PMaciasL (talk) 16:28, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

What's the issue? I can't even upload my own works without having an administrator delete them? My sandbox is where those images are being used, and later in a draft. Just like any other files, apparently I can't upload any of them without them being removed. For what reason? I don't know and I'd like those questions answered since I realized upload files relating to a Micronation is a "fictional state". It isn't fictional. I dedicate almost eight full hours a day on creating art and updating another wiki, and for this to happen on Wikipedia? Back in the day when I had another account, Wikipedia admins were not like this at all. I don't know what some of these admins are doing but it either needs to stop or something needs to be fixed, as me uploading files for my own personal sandbox is not allowed I'm guessing in Wikipedia anymore. I'm sure a plethora of other people have personal sandboxes with their own things. yet, I manage to upload my own copyrighted arts with the following license below and I'm being accused of uploading files relating to a fictional state? Of course it's questionable notability. It's a sandbox. I haven't yet finished adding up all the sources, so I really don't see a reason as to "mass deleting" all the actual files I uploaded and created with my own time and money.
--PMaciasL (talk) 16:46, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
Please read Commons:Project scope. Internet offer a lot of other places to upload personal files. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 18:46, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
I have carefully viewed the Project scope on Commons. The files aren't really personal, but are going to be used later in an article draft. They are being used in my sandbox to make sure I don't mess things up. Then, I will move it to a draft space where the draft might be able to turn out as an article. That's whyI am asking if you could please reconsider not deleting the important files. Thank you!

Uploads about Telmo Vergara and his worksEdit

EugeneZelenko, thanks for your revision on my recent uploads. The two images of Telmo Dias de Castro Vergara are digitalizations of the original photographs made by me. I have these photographs myself, that's because I'm the great-grandson of Telmo Vergara. And I also took photographs of the book covers, cause I have the books with me. I will add more information to the uploads, but I don't think they should be deleted. Sorry, I have few experience with commons. Can you give me instructions of how to add the necessary information?--Alexandre Fiori (talk) 15:20, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Owning physical copies doesn't mean owning of copyrights. However, some of works may be in public domain. You need to find out information about photographers, painters, etc. See also Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Brazil. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:37, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Hi EugeneZelenko, I just corrected some information in the following images: "Telmo Dias de Castro Vergara 2.jpg", "Telmo Dias de Castro Vergara.jpg" and "Assinatura Telmo Vergara.svg". The other three images of the signatures were uploaded in the wrong way, so they can be eliminated (the exception is the .svg one). I'll be soon getting the name of the author of the book covers. Thanks! --Alexandre Fiori (talk) 18:23, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Files marked for deletionEdit

Apologies if this the wrong place to do this but this communication system isn't at all intuitive.

You've marked a number of files I've uploaded for deletion. Rather than delete them can you tell me what I need to do to keep them? They are all taken from a book published in London in 1862 which I have been proofreading on Wikisource (Great Neapolitan Earthquake of 1857, Volume 2) and are for re-insertion back into the transcribed book.

The author Robert Mallett ( died in 1871 - more than 100 years ago - so the work is out of copyright.

Files by Lucas Pianta marked for deletionEdit

File:Scriptorium sao gallo.png File:Scriptorium Of Tábara.jpg Hello, EugeneZelenko. Thank you for your warnings about the licences of the images I uploaded to the Commons. I am new here and didn't know exactly how to do it. I actually have the infos about who made, where and when the image of the scriptirum of Tabara was made and thought i'd done it properly, but it seems that I was wrong. About the St. Gaal Abbey's plant image, what I did was to cut it to show where the scriptorium was located, but I see that I did it wrong when I wrote that the license was mine, I should have imagined that the proper thing to do was writing the infos about the abbey's plant, and not about who cuted the image. About those images which seemed to be prints from movies, that's wright. They are screen prints from The Name of the Rose, a movie; The Secret of Kells, an animation and Vikings, a series by History Channel and I already asked for them to be deleted urgently. I apologise about those mistakes and understand the importance of using the right licenses. I would really appreciate if you could help me to use the right licenses, since I am new at Wikipedia and not used to its rules. Also, those Tabara and St. Gaal images are very important for my work and I fear it wouldn't be as good as it could if I don't use them. So, I would really appreciate if I could only change the licenses and still be using them. Thank you, again. And sorry if I did something wrong. --Lucas Pianta (talk) 17:29, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Scriptorium sao gallo.png and File:Scriptorium Of Tábara.jpg are not your own work. They are seemed very old, so should be in public domain. You need to fix license tags. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:59, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Yes, that's right, they are not my own work. They were handmade in the Middle Ages. As you can see, the author of Tabara's image is Beatus of Liebana and it was made in 1220, also, the license I used for it was public domain. Should I change something in that picture? About the other picture, how can I change its license for public domain and edit its infos? Thank you. --Lucas Pianta (talk) 15:46, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

File pages could be edited as regular pages. Sorry, but {{Cc-zero}} didn't exist in 1220. You need to use public domain tags with period of copyrights protection. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:50, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi there,

I work for Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and we noticed that our logo was removed from the museum's wiki page saying that it was a "non-trivial logo" and was a copyright violation. Can you elaborate more on this and tell me what I need to do for it to be acceptable to stay on the page? The file was named Slugger-museum-logo-304.jpeg.


--Fuchs nick (talk) 18:04, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Please ask museum official (director, lawyer, etc) to send permission to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review and image undeletion. Alternatively you could upload logo locally to project which allow non-free media, for example, English Wikipedia. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:19, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

Mirai Suenaga undeleteEdit

Hi EZ, can you undelete these? Looking at the evidence, the original author has released the character under a free license, so speedy doesn't apply. See Category:Mirai Suenaga.

I think will be good idea to dig into issue deeply. Character claimed to be created for TV program, so copyrights transfer is possible. Commons:OTRS clarification from Danny Choo should solve problem. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:17, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

Hello, I signed the music author (music session in this case) and listed the songs, as it is on which is the source of music files. Is there something I missed? Perhaps derivative work is if I use music in the manner I did- Mixed together with interviews? Music is used as background music. It is instrumental music.

It is licensed with non commercial NC use, and I see now that is not in tune with commons policy.

Problem about my post en "Vikio amas Zeojn"Edit

I thank for the notification of the problem about the copyrights existing in my post. I am sure that there are no problems, but I do not know in which photo is the problem noticed and so I cannot solve it. The most parte of the photos are taken in the public streets; some are of the marble bust of Zamenhof, which is in the Esperanto Library, sculpted by Riccardo Rossi, and owned by the library itself, where me and others of the Esperanto Group voluteers. How can I remove the noticed problem? I am not so expert to do it by alone! Thanks for your help, Enrico (Apuano1)

Are you photographer? If so, please reupload photos as separate files, preferably in original resolution with EXIF.
In case of bust, please ask Riccardo Rossi to send permission to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:10, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Good morning and thanks for your help! The photographer is my friend and esperantist Alessandro Simonini; we decided to post not only photos, but a full article with phrases and photos, to partecipate in the "Premio Kvinpetala Stelo". I will try to put the photos in the original resolution with EXIF in our file.

Unfortunately, the sculptor R. Rossi died in the year 1983 ( ); therefore, I do not understand why we should ask, now, to the heirs, for a permission about a sculptur that was regularly purchased around the year 1976 by the esperantists of Massa, Tuskany, just for their Esperanto Library.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Apuano1 (talk • contribs) 07:33, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
You need to ask Alessandro Simonini to upload photos himself or to send permission to OTRS.
Did Riccardo Rossi have hair(s)? If so, they inherited copyrights and could give permission(s).
It's better to place text in relevant WMF project then with photos.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Macarena García Romero.pngEdit

Hi EugeneZelenko!

I took this photo from a live tv show interview about a year ago. I decided to post this Image now because I want this emerging actress to be identified with a picture since she is becoming more recognized by these days and she has not a picture yet in wikipedia. The image has a low resolution because it's just for identification purpose in her Biography page, also that she won't be confused with other persons that have a similar name, like for example another actress from Spain. The Image was taken with a average old camera (kodak zd 8612), in automatic mode. You also can check that this Image is not posted on the internet before here.

I hope this clarification can help to keep the File posted. Thank you for the attention. --Cesoso55 (talk) 02:57, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Butterfield's "Time Schedule" in "Butterfield Overland Mail"Edit

Eugene: I am surprised at this notice since I cleared using the Butterfield Schedule with Wikipedia “Master Editor” whose logo on Wikipedia is Cullen328. I will show my request on Wikipedia and his answer here, but suspect that the issue may be that I did not properly fill out the form. I thought I had by giving an additional explanation on the Wikipedia Commons that covers the source-copyright. The simple answer may be that I missed filling in the proper part of the form covering the issue. If that is the answer, I apologize and hope you will instruct me where the entry for this information should be entered on the form. Here is the explanation giving me permission by Wikipedia for why I inserted the schedule in “Butterfield Overland Mail (or you can read the entry in “Talk):

Right to use artwork.[edit source] As a newbie to the Wikipedia site, I want to be cautious at first until I understand the proper conduct. For additions of artwork to “Butterfield Overland Mail” entry in Wikipedia, I want to make sure that the information for a copy of the original Butterfield Overland Mail Company 1858-time schedule is acceptable for me to add to the site. The image to be used was scanned from the frontispiece published in “The Butterfield Overland Mail by Waterman L. Ormsby,” The Huntington Library, San Marino, California, 1991. According to a footnote in the book, the schedule was copied from “The Frances Lieber papers were purchased in 1927. A survey, by C. R. Robson, of the collection, other than the miscellaneous material, is available in “The Huntington Library Bulletin, No. 3 (Feb., 1933), pp. 135-155.” This information, if acceptable, for the use of the schedule will be included in its entirety. Thank you. Gerald T. Ahnert (talk) 16:16, 18 October 2018 (UTC)Gerald T. Ahnert Welcome to the Teahouse, Gerald T. Ahnert. Copyright is a very complex subject but some aspects are simple. Here is what the U.S. Copyright Office says: ". . . all works published in the United States before January 1, 1923, are in the public domain." So, you can use that 1858 schedule as you see fit.

Structured Data - copyright and licensing statementsEdit

I've posted a second round of designs for modeling copyright and licensing in structured data. These redesigns are based off the feedback received in the first round of designs, and the development team is looking for more discussion.

Deletion of Two PhotosEdit

The paintings that are seen in the photo have also been allowed by the current owners, such as the paintings at public display at the Blanco Family Museum, as well as those privately owned. I am quite new to becoming an editor on Wikipedia and really hope that you reconsider having the file on public view on Wikipedia, for i have said my appeal with the aforementioned statements.

Что не так с изображениями?Edit

Здравствуйте Евгений. Я новенький в Викискладе. Скажите, что не так с изображениями которые я загрузил на Викисклад? Я так понимаю какие-то проблемы с авторским правом?

Вот тема по поводу мною загруженных изображений

Про формулы и таблицы смотрите w:ru:Википедия:Формулы и w:ru:Википедия:Таблицы.
Иллюстрации явно взяты из книг, поэтому нужно знать источник/авторов, чтобы понять, охраняются ли они авторским правом или нет.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:21, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Взято конечно из книг и в принципе книги лежат в открытом доступе в сети. Сам автор не против публикации его материалов. Может их пометить, что автор согласен на публикацию материалов из книг? И я так понимаю, что формулы и таблицы не могут быть в формате изображений? --Balor9003 (talk) 01:12, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Открытый доступ не обязательно подразумевает свободную лицензию. Вы можете попросить автора прислать разрешение в Commons:OTRS (пример: Commons:Email templates).
Таблицы и формулы лучше делать в текстовом описании: так проще вносить изменения и также гарантировать то, что стиль (шрифты и т. п.) не будет отличаться от стиля основного текста. Также снимается проблема масштабирования.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:22, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

То есть я так понимаю автору необходимо прислать письмо написанное по шаблону и с указанием ссылок на изображения в Викимедии на адрес А кто рассматривает эти письма и насколько быстро это будет рассмотрено? --Balor9003 (talk) 20:15, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Рассматривают участники со соответствующими правами, но их не так много. Поэтому стоит попросить обратить внимание на Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard или напрямую кого-то из Category:Commons OTRS volunteers. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:13, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

У меня ещё вопрос по поводу видео. Если я в статье выкладываю небольшое видео научного эксперимента, то как я понимаю в видео не должно быть никакой музыки в виде фона, так как почти все музыкальные композиции защищены авторским правом? --Balor9003 (talk) 20:18, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Свободная музыка существует, но надо обязательно указать её источник и правильно лицензировать видео. Смотрите Commons:Использование содержимого Викисклада вне проектов Викимедиа. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:13, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Евгений докладываю вам: с электронной почты автора направлены письма в OTRS на предмет освобождения авторских прав для всех загруженных мною изображений. Также во все описания изображений добавлена информация, что файлы находятся на рассмотрении OTRS. Надеюсь вы не удалите их пока они не пройдут рассмотрение? --Balor9003 (talk) 21:43, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Даже если файлы будут удалены, их можно восстановить. Но лучше будет привлечь внимание к запросу, как я уже писал выше. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:52, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Евгений, скажите - если я загружу видео эксперимента с музыкальным фоном композиции, которая выставлена в интернете на сайте с музыкой с правами Creative Commons, то Викисклад автоматически просканирует моё видео на предмет музыкальных композиций с авторским правом или мне надо отдельно указывать при добавлении видео, что в видеофрагменте есть музыкальная композиция с правами Creative Commons? --Balor9003 (talk) 11:08, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

До автоматического сканирования прогресс не дошёл :-) В описании файла Вам надо будет добавить ссылку и лицензию музыки. Обратите, пожалуйста, внимание на то, что результат не может быть Вашей собственной работой, и на то, что не все варианты лицензий Creative Commons принимаются тут (смотрите Commons:Лицензирование). --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:06, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

I am professor of mathematics and am the author of these files writing it on german wikiversity, hence CC-by-sa 3.0. The uploaded version is the pdf-version (more beautiful). For used images from Commons all licences are given explicitly in the appendix of the file. The licensing statement expresses this and links to the wikiversity file. So please tell me what else I have to do in order to make the licencing satisfactory. Thank you, Holger.

please see the talk on Template talk:Wikiversitydedruckversion, thanksBocardodarapti (talk) 23:50, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

This files include historical photos and illustrations. Most likely they are in public domain, but you need to list their sources/copyrights status in files descriptions. Please do this for all such files, not only in those I marked. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:58, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
I understand this in the case of Dedekind/Peano, where indeeed something went wrong in the appendix, but not in the case of File:Grundkurs_Mathematik_(Osnabrück_2018-2019)Teil_IArbeitsblatt3.pdf (all pictures are from Commons, maybe that I could also add in the appendix). Best regards,Bocardodarapti (talk) 15:44, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
At least you could refer to page where images are attributed. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:52, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
I hope that now everything is satisfactory. The description page refers back to licence statement on Wikiversity, the same statement is explicitly in the file (appendix) and it is explained that all pictures come from commons (appendix). Best regardsBocardodarapti (talk) 17:24, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes, it's better now. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:59, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know Italian :-( Files nominated for deletion are historical photos and documents, not your own works. However there is possibility that they are in public domain. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:01, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Me explicoEdit

Ya que yo no soy experto en la Wikipedia no tuve más remedio de destacarla a la imagen cómo "Trabajo propio" (ya que no me lo permitía). Si puedes y si quieres puedes editarla, cambiandole el origen, la licencia y demás.

Saludos --Santiago Urquiza (talk) 02:52, 4 December 2018 (UTC)


Since I am not an expert in Wikipedia, I had no choice but to highlight it in the image as "Own work" (since I did not allow it). If you can and if you want you can edit it, changing the origin, the license and others.

the translation may be wrong ;)

--Santiago Urquiza (talk) 02:55, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know Portuguese :-( If photos were made by other people, please provide their source, authors and license information. Please note that licenses must confirm Commons:Licensing, otherwise files must be deleted. If photos were made by you, you could upload thim in original resolution with EXIF to proof your authorship. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:35, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Borrado de archivosEdit

Buenos días Eugene

Me pongo en contacto contigo porque se han borrado archivos de imagen y de vídeo de artículos que ya estaban publicados y de otros que estaba preparando. Todas las fotos y vídeos son de mi propiedad o tengo autorización para poder utilizarlos. Es muy posible que al ser novata haya cometido algún error a la hora de documentarlas o me haya saltado algún paso.

Por todo ello te solicito que reconsideres tu decisión o que seas tan amable de indicarme cuáles son los errores cometidos y cómo puedo solucionarlos.

Estos son los archivos: File:Avistamiento de delfines con Pescaturismo.png File:El grado de satisfacción de los turistas de Pescaturismo es del 95%.jpg File:Descubre la costa con las excursiones de Pescaturismo.jpg File:Pescadores artesanales de Pescaturismo.jpg File:Marinero por un día con Pescaturismo.jpg File:Descubre la costa con Pescaturismo.webm File:Aventura en Familia con Pescaturismo.webm File:Avistamiento de delfines y ballenas con Pescaturismo.webm File:Pescaturismo es elegido mejor producto turístico de Baleares.webm File:Pescaturismo es premio Turismo Sostenible de Fitur.webm File:Comida a bordo en las excursiones de Pescaturismo.webm File:Comida a bordo de Pescaturismo.ogg File:Excursiones de Pescaturismo.jpg File:Excursiones con pescadores.jpg File:Excursiones en barcos de pesca.jpg File:Logo de Pescaturismo.png File:Coll-baix-02.jpg File:Coll-baix-01.jpg

Muchas gracias y enhorabuena por el gran trabajo que haces, Merce García --Mercè Garcia Roca (talk) 09:44, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know Spanish :-(
Problem with permission should be solved following way: copyrights holder should send permission to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review and images undeletion.
Please note that some of images may not fit into Commons:Scope because of their advertisement nature.

You need to find out who is photographer and ask hin/her send permission to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:14, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

File:Bishop Stefan.jpgEdit

Hi Eugene,

This picture belongs to our church. It was taken by somebody from parish. I knew Bishop Stefan personally and wanted to put his photo to article.

Can you tell me how to fix it?

Thank you,

Deletion requestEdit

No tiene sentido que se borren imágenes que se han tomado de mi autoría junto con otros amigos fans de la lucha libre. Hace unos años atrás fui baneado de una cuenta permanentemente por supuestamente la misma violación de derechos con imágenes de futbolistas que yo mismo tomé con mi cámara mientras posaban con fans luego de los partidos, pero no me dejaron defenderme ni probar que realmente era así. Me parece absurda y muy injusta la acusación, así muy pocas ganas dan de colaborar.

Traducción: It does not make sense to delete images that have been taken from my authorship along with other friends fans of professional wrestling. A few years ago I was banned from an account permanently for allegedly the same violation of copyrights with images of football players that I took with my own camera while posing with fans after matches, t they did not let me defend myself or prove that it really was that way. The accusation seems absurd and very unjust, so there is very little desire to collaborate more, so do whatever you want. --El mantecoso (talk) 22:01, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

bot flag removalEdit

hello, if you got some time,
can you remove the bot flag from my bot.
the bot is not active and I don't plan to use it any time soon.
So this is probably safe to disable the bot flag.
and maybe do an indef block on the bot for security purpose.

The bot is Esby-mw-bot (talk · contribs).
Thanks in advance.
Esby (talk) 23:17, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

  Done. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:41, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

File:Tears of steal fps-comparison.webmEdit

Hello, thanks for reviewing the above mentioned media. I don't completely understand the template message you left on my talk page. What copyright information should I add? Do you mean the pictures in the back? --McMalloc (talk) 16:12, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

Video file seems to be clip from movie. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:16, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes, it is from a movie from the Blender Foundation that was published under CC-BY 3.0, as stated in the copyright information. --McMalloc (talk) 16:22, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
Please add link to that movie into description. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:24, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
I did, it's --McMalloc (talk) 16:48, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for completing the information on the file. I will refer to it the next time I'll upload something like that. Cheers, McMalloc (talk) 10:21, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Multilingual captions beta testingEdit

The Structured Data on Commons team has begun beta testing of the first feature, multilingual file captions, and all community members are invited to test it out. Captions is based on designs discussed with the community[5][6] and the team is looking forward to hearing about testing. If all goes well during testing, captions will be turned on for Commons around the second week of January, 2019.

Multilingual captions are plain text fields that provide brief, easily translatable details of a file in a way that is easy to create, edit, and curate. Captions are added during the upload process using the UploadWizard, or they can be added directly on any file page on Commons. Adding captions in multiple languages is a simple process that requires only a few steps.

The details:

  • There is a help page available on how to use multilingual file captions.
  • Testing will take place on Beta Commons. If you don’t yet have an account set up there, you’ll need one.
  • Beta Commons is a testbed, and not configured exactly like the real Commons site, so expect to see some discrepancies with user interface (UI) elements like search.
  • Structured Data introduces the potential for many important page changes to happen at once, which could flood the recent changes list. Because of this, Enhanced Recent Changes is enabled as it currently is at Commons, but with some UI changes.
  • Feedback and commentary on the file caption functionality are welcome and encouraged on the discussion page for this post.
  • Some testing has already taken place and the team are aware of some issues. A list of known issues can be seen below.
  • If you discover a bug/issue that is not covered in the known issues, please file a ticket on Phabricator and tag it with the “Multimedia” tag. Use this link to file a new task already tagged with "Multimedia."

Known issues:

Gunther Schuller Society concert programEdit

I'm not sure if this is the place to make this comment, but here goes.

I added the cover page from the 11/19/18 performance in order to prove that it had taken place.

Orchestra existed for many years. Does article about it need every concert poster? Recent one is not exception. You could refer to orchestra's web site, is that concert is important in some ways. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:46, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
