Speedy deletion of user group signEdit

Recently, I was notified that an image that was uploaded of a sign used by a Wikimedia affiliate was marked for speedy deletion. Why?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 22:58, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

@RightCowLeftCoast: There are three logos in the photos. Each logo is copyright protected unless you can show it falls under an exception. In the middle is the Wikipedia logo (File:Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg), which is licensed under CC-BY-SA-3.0, a license that requires re-users to both attribute and ShareAlike. In the photos you uploaded, you’ve licensed them without any attribution to the original authors of any of those logos. The Wikipedia logo is also trademarked, so re-use may require permission from the WMF. FredWalsh (talk) 23:08, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Unblock requestEdit

Unblock request granted

This blocked user asked to be unblocked, and one or more administrators has reviewed and granted this request.

Request reason: "It seems I share an IP range that has been globally blocked (see the details below). My ISP allocates IP's using a formula that I do not control and neither do the other millions of UK people who are served by this ISP. I am a bona fide user with a proven track record of positive (albeit sometimes unpopular) contributions but I make no apology for tagging hundreds of copyvio files which have been deleted. I cannot wait till the global block ends in four weeks because I suspect it will again be used for malicious purposes by persons unknown and it will probably be blocked again. I am aware that I do not qualify for a global IPBE because almost all of my editing is done here. Please add the IPBE flag to my account so I can continue working. The message I received was:
Your IP address is in a range that has been blocked on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis.

The block was made by Tks4Fish (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Long-term abuse. Start of block: 22:06, 13 July 2020 Expiry of block: 22:06, 13 August 2020 Your current IP address is 2a02:c7d:3c1a:7300:60cc:d8c1:312e:46a1 and the blocked range is 2A02:C7D:3C1A:7300:0:0:0:0/64. Please include all above details in any queries you make. If you believe you were blocked by mistake, you can find additional information and instructions in the No open proxies global policy. Otherwise, to discuss the block please post a request for review on Meta-Wiki or send an email to the stewards OTRS queue at stewards@wikimedia.org including all above details.

Thank you. FredWalsh (talk) 23:51, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Unblock reason: "Apparently you are requesting IP block exempt right. I granted you the right. Happy editing! Taivo (talk) 13:22, 16 July 2020 (UTC)"

Assistance regarding deletionEdit

I, Ulf Larsen, have added a deletion request on this picture of mine below, in order to suspend a speedy deletion request:


I do however think that I have not got all correct, so if you could fix my mistakes I would be glad for that.

Regarding deleting the picture, my position is as on other of the 90+ pictures I have uploaded of me in amateur porn, that this is up to the community on Wikimedia Commons to decide. It seems to me that pornography is not uncommon and so, if such pictures are to be deleted, what other pictures must we remove? Pictures of war, perhaps? Ulflarsen (talk) 11:21, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

@Ulflarsen: sorry I wasn’t able to help earlier. I see you’ve added a comment in the deletion request. I don’t think the deletion will happen. FredWalsh (talk) 15:52, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
