Images of Val Gardena RailroadEdit

Hello, I have uploaded the wrong images. I would like to upload the originals, because the one that are on Commons now are edited and didn’t look very well. The problem is, I don’t know the exact procedure how to upload new images to replace the old one. Could you help me? The images I am talking about are


Thank you a lot. Luigino 16:57, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Salve Filnik, come mai spegnere la mia fotografia? La ho preso con la mia LUMIX, la chiesa non e privata, e vecchia, ha un sacco di centinaia, nessun conosce l'architetto, ho natato {PD=self) e {self|cc-by-sa-3.0} [con due {{ }}], non so, che cosa possa mancare. Ti prego di dirmi dov'è la problema. Grazie! Gregor Bert

I don't speak so much english.Edit

Do you speak portuguese or italian?The foto is mine, I made that in Kilkenny. Santista1982 16:31, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Image deletionEdit

Hi Filnik, your bot has told me that it is planning to delete one of my images. See the note on my talk page. It told me my image had no information about the author and no license tag. Bt this is not true. It has got both. Could you please take care that nothing goes wrong? Best regards --Maulaff 16:46, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Fix your botEdit

The bot you are running are nagging about license when it is clearly stated in the text or in {{Information}}. Either fix it or get an consensus on changing the policy on what is necessary license tagging. Jeblad 23:20, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

This (Image:Signature Kiev letter.gif) was tagged for deletion, its about 1000 years after any copyright has expired. Don't run a bot without verifying the results! Jeblad 23:34, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Adjust your robotEdit

For Christ's, Allah's and so on sake: adjust your frigging robot. If it says: "Source: self-made" it just days that. Go away!!!!!! If author =username it means that your robot is crap if a warning emanates! Cheers, and happy fiddling with the settings of your robot!! I have better tyhings to do than to respond to idiotic error messages. Stay away with Wankbot X. or you shall get into trouble. -- OAlexander 08:25, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Adjusted my brain. Sorry for having been a bit harsh, but maybe the copyrightenforcers might enforce a bit less on the broadscale, but provifde a bit more pro-active assistance on a case by case basis. Just a thought. Happy co-op forthwith, my dear and valued colleague. OAlexander 13:49, 15 November 2007 (UTC)


Could you please use {{No tag message}} instead of {{Image source}}? User talk page will be much more compact in case of multiple problems. See User talk:Ганна as example. --EugeneZelenko 15:52, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:PAN2.JPG è stata creata da me con la macchina digitale mia, e poi perchè dovrei specificare la fonte se qundo si carica la foto ti danno un template che dice 1)opera mia; 2)Proveniente da Flickr; 3)Da un'altro progetto di wiki; 4)Governo federale americano e 5)da quelche altra parte. Ogni lik di questo ti mette il source automaticamente. Quindi non è possibile eliminarla.--Pinotto992 10:03, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Mi devi scusare di questo atto improvviso accaduto qui sopra, perche avevo dimenticato di mettere la licenza all'immagine caricata di recente e guardando tra i messaggi arrivati mi sono spaventato di un messaggio di cancellazione dell'immagine caricata (Image:PAN2.JPG) e quindi non ho ragionato su chi aveva scritto quel massaggio recapitatomi dal utente che aveva questa questione dell'inserimento della fonte.--Pinotto992 13:34, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Template not workingEdit

You put this on my talk page: "{{subst:Utente:Filbot/PD_deleted|Bellocq Storyville undamaged.jpg}}", which is not working so I don't know what you wanted to say. Also, the image involved has all license information there, please tell me what you or your bot thinks it needs. Thanks, Storkk 22:42, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Problems with permissionsEdit


Concerning the photos of Baden, Austria, I loaded them to WikiMedia Commons with the license "From another Wikipedia project". Actually, all these photos can be found on, article "Baden (Austria)" or just search for it.

If the pictures there have been uploaded without a proper check, then I do not know.

But I am sure that they do have already a license that fits to Wikipedia.

SAE1962 10:23, 12 December 2007 (UTC)


You seem to have asked me about the license for photos I recently uploaded to WikiMedia COMMONS. I got this email that I can send to you, if you wish.

Hi, The bot put up a message regarding Image:John Brack working.jpg

I understand that the Author of a Photo is the photographer. In this case the Photographer is dead, or unknown. My family has inherited the photo.

I have sent an email to Subject: Permission - Image:John_Brack_working.jpg

The original photography was a 35mm slide given by the artist John Brack, deceased, (depicted in the photo, circa 1971), or by someone else - not now known, to J.R. McLeod, deceased, and the slide has passed to his estate. The inheritors of his estate hereby grant permission of use of the image for public use.

will this be OK. Dnw

Wappen at PerchtoldsdorfEdit


The picture Wappen at Perchtoldsdorf actually exist in the Article Perchtoldsdorf at Wikipedia German. So, it is a free license document and can be modified.

What I did was to remove some noise in the beg central part of the picture by editing it.

So, it is a Wikipedia document (Wiki license) & was improved by me. What am I supposed to add to such a picture?

Hi, your robot is not very good if it can't read the permissions and see when a licensed picture is re-loaded with corrections or addings. Sorry you'd better stop it, otherwise it could make a lot of damage.--B.navez 18:31, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Is there any chance your bot could be made to recognise {{tl:Notify me}} and take some sort of different action? David Underdown 21:58, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
True, that email could be enabled, but the template is suggested in the registration process as a way of ensuring that messages get left for you somewhere they are likely to be seen. I got interrupted last time so didn't have enough time to put down my full thoughts. Perhaps the bot could list users who use the template (for a trial period), and if there is not a ridiculous number, some thought could be given to manually notifiying users on the relevant project?

License of montage, GIMPed together out of public domain images of Wikimedia CommonsEdit

Shamanism is a very general (sometimes even debated) concept, comprising mediator-role figures of several different cultures, with great diversity. That is why this image is a tableau. It is created to be a lead image of Wikipedia's Shamanism article.

Thank You for notifying me about the inappropriate description page of my recently uploaded image. It is a montage, I myself made it with GIMP out of four images of Wikimedia Commons.

  • Three of the four "member images" is licensed {{PD-old}}
  • but one of them is more restrictive: {{LOC-image|id=cph.3b25870}}{{PD-US}}.

I am entirely ignorant about

  • How shall I make the description page? What license shall I give to it?
  • May I remove the Filbot's {{no license|month=January|day=16|year=2008}} template myself, or must I wait for someone to do it?

Till then, I have given to the montage the most restrictive license of its member images, that is {{LOC-image|id=cph.3b25870}}{{PD-US}}.

Image seens to be alright, but...Edit


I am totally new at Commons and have been trying to upload the image "GYN-Skyline.jpg" to be used at Wikipedia. You won't be able to browse this image by searching for it, and that's the problem! But somehow the image is already listed at the category "Goiânia" (sorry, I also couldn't make hyperlinks work here!). What am I doing wrong? Would you be so kind as to help me on that?

Hello, I didn't understand what is the problem & what I should do to fix it. I have taken this picture by myself & I want to release it into the public domain. oh! I've forgotten to add license? can I just add "==Licensing== {{PD-self}}" and erase "{{no license|month=January|day=20|year=2008}}"? Thank you, Almighty 23:09, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

wie kriege ich das denn hin, um ein bild vom englischen wiki in Wikimedia Commons zu verschieben? muss man es sich erst runterladen und dann selbst nochmal hochladen? wie ist es dann aber mit der Lizenz?, weil es ja nicht mein Bild ist, da gibts so ne beschreibung nicht.

Your certain suggestion?Edit

Copyright issue, really?

Sorry, I cannot get your message certainly. You mean that the User name, Picture description or Copyright mark is missing?

Well, If you were me, how would you correct the defect?

Please give a certain suggestion. Thanks! --JavaSat26 09:13, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

re Image:Tankwa02.jpgEdit

Hi Filnik, As I stated in my description of the above image, it is the same image as Image:Tankwa01.jpg with the boundaries of the park added. Rotational 13:43, 29 January 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I am User:Tsungyenlee. I saw you message. Well, the image was captured from the Chinese Wikipedia. I just dont know to to tag the exactly same tag as that on zh.wikipedia. Can you just help me if you can? Bty, I'm the student at that school. The flag has been used for a long time, and the school always encourages us to promote our own school in any way. However, They didn't mention about the use of the Shcool's flag. Yup, indeed, I haven't asked my teacher, and it would be weird if I do so cause it's not he that create the flag? And should I ask my school master for this kinda thing? I dont think he has such time to answer me. SO I just dont know how to add the license. Please help me if you have any idea. You may leave message at my en.wikipedia or zh.wikipedia talk page since I appear there more often. I really appreciate your advice and thank you for helping me! Tsungyenlee 13:53, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

As to your concern, I think I've found out some solutions. However, if you are still willing to help me check if there is any mistake, I will be appreciate.Tsungyenlee 14:02, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
According to my previous experince, I have to spend lots of time explaining even what "wikipedia" is to my teacher. I am sure the license on th zh.wikipedia is correct, that is {{{logo}}}. It should be the seventh points mentioned on

I'm really sorry for keeping bothering you, but can you help me find the related tag on commons? I am new to commons...sorry..By the way, I know it might be a bit confusing, but I still have to say, I live in Taiwan, not China. There are some similarities as well as differences between Taiwan and the Chinese Mainland. I didn't feel bad, but just want to clarify that I'm not now living in the so-called China.^^Tsungyenlee 15:23, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

I see. Thanks for answeing me anyway. I'll try to find. But I just cannot guarantee if I would successfully get the right information. ^^ Tsungyenlee 15:49, 29 January 2008 (UTC)


I wouldn't mind a little help finding the liscence for File:The Eighth Hour Romance Band Picture.jpg. If you can help find that would be great. Saksjn 20:15, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Problems with copyrightEdit

I've edited my first article in wikipedia (, and I've registered myself in Wikimedia to upload some images, and add them to the article.

I don't know very well the way of uploading them (probably because of my bad English),but due to something about copyright, the images will be deleted in seven days. They are free images, taken from free webs (papers and forums), and I don't know exactly what I must do to keep them in Wikipedia. I 've written the source where I've taken them...but i don't know if it's ok!!

You will be very kind if you can explain me what's the problem and what I must do to solve it.

Thank you and greetings


No - because I am not a 'crat! Sorry --Herby talk thyme 15:34, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

I have no interest in any license, I practised GPL.
I think that the licenses were compatible.

Hello user Filnik. I´m new here and I´m Spanish. You can see that I haven't got a good level of English so I did not understand your message. If you are able to write that message in Spanish or in Frech if you want I'll be very very happy. Thanks you very much. --CParísC 21:22, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Copyright problem Amazone 48Edit

Hello, I have not understood well your message , in terms of what I shoul add or do. But I have had some help from Wiki friends. I am sending a e-mai from the artist and myself ( photographer) giving official permission. I am sending it in French to:permissions-fr Will that be OK or should I send it also in English? Must I change anything of the description ?? I have changed the license since I realized that I have put the same images also on the artist website which I have done myself : And there is of course a copyright on the site . So I suppose this is where the problem has come from. Thanks for your help --amazone 48 09:35, 8 February 2008 (UTC) ( Rachel Sun in photo)

License put back, but image no longer appears in category "gallery"Edit


Your bot correctly tagged my image after I inadvertantly removed the {{pd-self}} license (due to some hamfisted editing).

I fixed this as soon as I spotted the problem.

However, despite reinstating the license template, the image now doesn't appear in its category listing/gallery. I remember checking before it was tagged and it definitely showed up. Are images tagged as missing a license also implicitly marked so that potential copyvios don't appear?

If so, can you please restore the status of this image, as the lack of a license was a minor typo on my part which has now been fixed.

Multicherry 19:25, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Hang on, ignore that. It's back now. I don't believe that it was a problem with my browser, as I cleared Firefox's cache several times since last night, and it has only reappeared now. Am still curious to hear what happened if you do know the answer anyway; if not, don't worry. :) Multicherry 19:38, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


Nice to meet you, Filnik. I want to have contacts in wiki and commons, if you want, add me to messenger. You can find my messenger there. Bye! Sebado 14:04, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Tagging modified version of PD images?Edit


The following are separately-uploaded modified versions of public domain images. Is the tagging okay?

Here's my reasoning:- These are *not* the original versions. AFAIK, it is theoretically possible to make some (non-trivial) modifications to a public domain work and copyright it. Therefore, I thought it should be clear that

  • This is not the original version
  • I disclaim all theoretical rights (if any) to the modified version, and also place it in the public domain.

About my uploaded Image:Itanium Sales Forecasts edit.pngEdit

The original source in English Wikipedia [3]is under GFDL, and when I creative this file at wikimedia commons, I have select "GFDL content at English Wikipedia" on select permission, but I have got the "no license" template now. What am I missing?

Message from your botEdit

Hi. I have received a message from your bot after uploading the image "Image:43102fall08.jpg". In fact I wanted to upload the image form the english WIkipedia to share it on commons, as it was licensed under GFDL; I have used this tool. Actually it seems that the license is not good because it's a screenshot from a video available on a website. What do you think? Should the image be deleted? Sorry for the inconivenience.
