Mass Deletion RequestsEdit

When you nominate more than two or three images in the same category or from the same uploader for deletion, as you did at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Full scale GUNDAM - panoramio (21).jpg and related images, please use VFC. It will save you considerable time in making the nominations and it saves the closing Admin one click per file plus having to write only one closing comment for the whole batch. You can access it easily by using

or learn more at Help:VisualFileChange.js. Thanks, .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:06, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

By the way, I should add that I very much appreciate all the effort you have made in cleaning out FOP problems in Japan -- in the past week I must have deleted 100s of them that you nominated before I posted this. Keep up the good work! .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:38, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. --G I Chandor (talk) 02:06, 5 February 2017 (UTC)


こんにちは。あなた G I Chandor (talk · contributions · Number of edits) は、日本語を理解しているものと考える私は、あえてこの場に日本語で投稿します。あなたは、日本語版ウィキペディアの記事に用いられている各種案内板の類について、詳細に検討することなく軽々に著作権侵害を騒ぎ立て、削除依頼を乱立しています。著作権を正しく理解していますか?また自分の行為に問題はないと考えますか?--もかめーる (talk) 04:48, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

もかめーるさん、こんにちは。もかめーるさんのアップロードした画像File:Haradani chonaikai.JPGが削除されたんですね。案内板の著作権について、Wikipedia日本語版の井戸端で「案内地図は美術作品か、その他の著作物か、著作物ではないのか」という議論が行われていますので、そちらの議論に参加してみてはいかがでしょうか。私の提出した削除依頼は大多数が管理者の判断により削除されていますので、問題はないと考えます。--G I Chandor (talk) 08:40, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
(横やり失礼、可読性のためインデントします)User:もかめーるさんへ コモンズではjawpのようなグダグダと長い依頼文は好まれていません。それは、Commons:Deletion requests/2017/02/08などをご覧になればわかるかと存じます。それこそ、「メタデータが付与されていない小さなサイズの写真であって、アップロード者には著作権侵害の履歴があります。」という依頼文を管理者がするくらいです。
もし、以上の説明で以ってしてもG I Chandorさんの削除依頼に不服を申し立てられるのであれば、Commons:削除依頼#決定への抗議に従って、削除操作を行った管理者に直談判されるとか、Commons:削除撤回依頼を提出するという方法で削除撤回(jawpでは復帰)を求めることができますので、ぜひともご利用下さい。--Kkairri (talk) 14:27, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
User:Kkairriさん、補足をしていただきまして、どうもありがとうございます。--G I Chandor (talk) 03:56, 16 February 2017 (UTC)


Hello, please read and understand COM:TOO first before nominating an image which contains simple text for deletion. Text are obviously not copyrightable unless if there is originality on it, such as calligraphy. Thanks, Poké95 02:31, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

In Commons:Deletion requests/File:KandaMyojinZenigataHeijiSign8808.jpg, the administrator said "In the USA and most other countries, any text of one sentence or more has a copyright as a literary work.". Thank you.--G I Chandor (talk) 08:53, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
Hmm, if that's the case, the threshold of originality for the U.S. on texts is too high. Weird. I am going to ask Jim on this since if this is the true, then a possible mass deletion is on the way. Poké95 10:48, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, User:Pokéfan95. I read User_talk:Jameslwoodward#Does a simple sentence have copyright in the U.S.?.--G I Chandor (talk) 04:00, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Please don't forget to categorize deletion discussionsEdit

With categories like Category:FoP-Japan or undelete in 20xx. Please see the categories I added to Commons:Deletion requests/File:Zojo-ji Temple Minata Tokyo August 2014 51.JPG. Thanks! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 02:29, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Hello, User:Piotrus. Please teach me. Does the person who submitted DR must always categorize the DR?--G I Chandor (talk) 03:48, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
Must, no. But I think it is best practice, through sometimes it is hard to do - when we don't know details about image, etc (copyvios). But since you were able to identify the reasons/dates so well, those items are very good examples of what can be tagged for future review and rescue (even if it can happen decades down the road). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 09:17, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. If it is not submitter's duty, I want to leave it to others. Because I think that it is not good for the submitter to edit it.--G I Chandor (talk) 09:45, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
I believe that if you are taking upon yourself to delete (or nominate for deletion) the work of others, you should follow the said best practices and add undeletion categories. Not doing so, IMHO, is showing a lack of regard and respect for the uploader, the Commons community and the spirit of free culture. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 04:25, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Deletion requests.Edit

Hi G.I. Chandor, I noticed you requested to remove some pictures. One of the pictures was taken by me in a public park for no commercial purpose. As i am no lawyer i assume you are right that the picture is not allowed on the Commons. I just wonder how does this picture bother you personally and what is your benefit to delete this picture? Just for your information. I have no commercial benefit of putting this picture on the Commons and only put it there for information so people might be inspired even more to visit your (i assume you are Japanese) beautiful country. Note I realize that somebody might copy the picture and use it for commercial benefit. If so i think they can use better quality pictures.--Butch (talk) 11:45, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Butch. Your idea is that "I want many people to know about the beautiful country". It's very wonderful idea. But, images of copyrighted statue in Japan aren't allowed in Commons, unfortunately. (See Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Japan.) We must obey Commons policy. Which do you like orderly Commons or chaotic Commons ? If you like orderly Commons, I want you to understand the necessity of deletion requests. Good luck!--G I Chandor (talk) 23:28, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
