Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2018 is open!Edit

Dear Ganímedes,

You are receiving this message because we noticed that you voted in R1 of the 2018 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in the second round. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2018) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked.

In the final (and current) round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2018.

Round 2 will end 17 March 2019, 23:59:59.

Hola, no te olvides de añadir el modelo de "OTRS received", si no alguien puede borrar los ficheros otra vez por error! --Ruthven (msg) 08:29, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

:-) …de todas forma, depende. A veces son los administradores que ponen la plantilla si son tb OTRS (no pueden hacerlo si no lo son), pero a menudo hacer sólo el trabajo de restaurar ficheros y luego dejan al operador la tarea de poner una plantilla u otra (como aquí). ¡Saludos! --Ruthven (msg) 10:44, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Please see also File:Benjamin_Gordon,_entrepreneur.jpg which is a duplicate of the one you just requested at UDR. De728631 (talk) 19:05, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

I think we need to keep this one (File:Benjamin Gordon, entrepreneur.jpg) for the time being since it is in use. So unless there are copyright issues still left untreated in the OTRS process, I wont' mind giving this file an approval. If notability turns out to be questionable later on, i.e. the draft and/or article gets deleted, anyone may still file a formal deletion request at that time.

Ticket 2019082610002471Edit

Hi, I noticed you added OTRS-permission to File:LUCILLE FEREMANS.jpg. The photo is supposed to be a Selfie of art-photographer Feremans, but it comes with a copyright sign of photographer Eddy Stockmans. If Stockmans is indeed the photographer and the one who gave permission, this should be stated more clearly I think. Could you please check? Ronn (talk) 14:30, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

File:Humming bird by Hasse kamiya, an examples of applied kiriorigami.jpgEdit

Hi, you confimred OTRS release for this image, but forgot to add a license template. Can you have another look please. --JuTa 16:01, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

File:SEAN COMPTON 2019.jpgEdit

Please remember of adding/checking also the license info while adding a permission ticket number to a file. Ankry (talk) 13:05, 15 September 2019 (UTC)


I don't think we even need OTRS for this. The image has a watermark stating that was created with a certain online map software. That page published any maps created with their tool under CC-by-4.0. I have added a link to this licence statement. De728631 (talk) 15:32, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi, can you please explain me what are issues for accepting File:CLIMATE CHANGE PERFORMANCE INDEX OF VARIOUS COUNTRIES.png, and since the map is created under CC4.0, do we need to submit them for OTRS?--IM3847 (talk) 16:01, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
@IM3847: Apparently it was you who submitted it to OTRS, so why did you do that? Is Maps Affinity an alternate account of yours? De728631 (talk) 16:11, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
@De728631:Why would I do that man? I’ve been coordinating with various Instagrammers to release their images on commons, this was one of those cases, may be this Instagrammer forgot to change his mail account while sending it to OTRS request.—IM3847 (talk) 16:25, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Well, I just noticed you added the "OTRS pending" tag while somebody else uploaded the file. Anyhow, as I wrote above, imho we don't need OTRS in this particular case. De728631 (talk) 16:37, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Per Ganímedes' notice at my talk page I have now asked the Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard for suggestions how to move on. De728631 (talk) 16:59, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Important message for file moversEdit

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:35, 7 November 2019 (UTC)


I was working with the user on the help desk and intended to grab the ticket myself but you beat me to it. GMGtalk 18:05, 11 November 2019 (UTC)


Hi there,

I've adding photos of the author Dougal Dixon to his Wikipedia article, and helped his wife Jean Dixon send an OTRS permission to clear the file Dixon_Strida.jpg under an open licence. Can you tell me what the issue is with the permission message? —Giantflightlessbirds (talk) 05:28, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Scott Smith PhotoEdit

Hello and thanks for contacting me. I made a mistake about the Scott Smith photo, he had provided it to me and said he "owned the copyright' and I had misinterpreted that and thought that meant it was a work for hire and not a selfie. I can fix the record or you are welcome to. Thank you Jessamyn (talk) 20:13, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

OTRS ticketEdit

Hi Ganímedes,

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand Revision #406459449. Don't we still await reply to the last OTRS email?  JGHowes  talk 17:23, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

File:Jan Howard--Decca Photo.jpgEdit

Hi. I see you have kept the file which "can be found on Jan Howard's official website" surely because Jan Howard send you a permission via OTRS, as she does for another most recent picture of her. But this image is not her own, first because she is unlikely to be the photographer and second because it has been issued by Decca Records, now a subsidiary of Universal Music Group and it's unlikely that this company replied to OTRS so fast. Then may you double-check the permission? Thanks, --Patrick Rogel (talk) 13:29, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

COM:UDR questionEdit


could you, please, help us to verify in this UDR case if our interpretation of Argentinian copyright law concerning unpublished photos (that they are copyrighted forever) is correct? I am asking you as a native Spanish speaker who might be aware about variuos copyright-related cases due to your OTRS work. Ankry (talk) 08:28, 27 March 2020 (UTC)


Hello, FYI that I opened #User:Ruwaym on Administrators' noticeboard. Thanks --Alaa :)..! 14:16, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Jessica Rich photoEdit

@Ganímedes: Hi there, not sure what happened but the message I posted here just a few minutes ago is gone... I noticed that you updated the OTRS status for https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jessica_Rich.jpg. However, the "This media file does not have sufficient information on its copyright status. " tag is still on the page. Shall I go ahead and remove it? And can I add the photo to the article now? Thanks in advance! Macgirl (talk) 02:11, 7 August 2020 (UTC)



I see you mentioning notes made by agents within the OTRS system several times, and as you can see this is not received well. If notes are being made, they most of the time are simple notes on where to find, or what a line of thought was when replying to the contact. It is not beneficial to mention these online, because you are creating an unnecessary air of secrecy around the OTRS procedure. And this makes others distrust us, so please try not to refer to the notes made.

Best, Ciell (talk) 08:23, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice, but please note that it wasn't me who mention the comment, and it was me who says that wasn't right. --Ganímedes (talk) 10:01, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Hi, yes I saw that, but I concisely did not address his comment about this, and it was not the only topic in which you seem to make things more secretive then they have to be. I'm just warning you about the impact of your words could have on users. I can see you're not a native speaker (same as me), and sometimes it seems a bit of a cultural difference more that a pure language thing.
No angry words here, just a friendly hint. Ciell (talk) 18:23, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, but I think it's completely unnecessary. I've got some time here and I'm quite active in OTRS, and you can see how many times I speak about this and in which circumstances. In the other threat, the user (who's not the customer and not the CR holder) requested more and more information about the talk between the customer and the agent (who wasn't me). I don't know in your country, but in Wikipedia in Spanish some users have been blocked because of made public talks in IRC or email. It's like to read other people's mail. Another agent's suggested him to join the conversation by email. End of story. Now, I think one of these problems (the first at least) should not exist without this comment, that really confused the customer. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 21:27, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
Hi Ganímedes, I actually notice you're spending quite the amount of time in OTRS, and on the OTRS Noticeboard, and I appreciate your efforts and your quick replies to questions. I know you're not the only one in the threads there to mention the agents-notes function of OTRS, but because you are highly active, I thought it correct to warn you about the example you are setting and the idea of secrecy that it reinforces. Ciell (talk) 20:22, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

Hello user Ganímede I hope you are well I need help because the file: Bus of route 47 while it caught fire.jpg It does not have permission and I put it but you deleted it, could you explain how? put that license so that this and other files are not deleted, besides that the ticket they sent me is wrong, which is [Ticket # 2020092010000443] Confirmation of receipt (Re: release of Microbus, thanks.

You've added an OTRS permission as you were an OTRS agent, and you're not. That's our job. And I'm still trying to verify the license. When I'm done, I'll request the undeletion, if it's needed. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 12:04, 20 September 2020 (UTC)


Dear Ganímedes,
may I ask you if this picture will be deleted again, of if Mr Wuschanski's mails plus the metadata of this version might be enough proof of his authorship.
Like Jeff G. suggested here? Best regards, Kaethe17 (talk) 17:01, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

Logos de TV chilenaEdit

Hola. No sé cuáles son las fuentes exactas que se usaron al crear los archivos, pero en esta página están los de Canal 13 o de la Universidad Católica de Chile. Espero que Davos pueda darte datos más concretos. Saludos. Lin linao ¿dime? 02:05, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Hola. Lo que hallo son videos históricos subidos por otra gente, que supongo que no tiene los permisos para subirlos. Uno es un fragmento de algún reportaje ¿re?emitido en el programa "Amigas y amigos" (c. 1998) de Chilevisión, el canal privado sucesor del canal 9 -> el 11 de la U. de Chile: en Dailymotion y en Youtube, ahí se muestra el logo del 9 con el círculo y el de U TV en los segundos 0:27-0:35 y después de nuevo el del 9 con el círculo en objetos en 0:46-0:58. En este video de Youtube está el UTV con los colores al revés y en este de Dailymotion está el 9 con círculo. Finalmente, en este de Dailymotion está el logo del 9 grande. ¿Puede usarse eso? Saludos. Lin linao ¿dime? 22:26, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
Oh, me lo temía. Sospecho que al menos algunos de los logos se hicieron así, dibujando a partir de lo que se ve en los videos. Saludos. Lin linao ¿dime? 22:51, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
