Deletion RequestEdit

This discussion is regarding a deletion request reportedly been uploaded through copyright.

File name (image): Dambuhalang_titi_ng_Negro_na_hindi_tuli_at_lubasan_naka_tayo.jpg ‎(316 × 316 pixels, file size: 31 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)

In my defense, the image was not uploaded contradicting to copyright due to the file was of my own works for educational and health purposes. But, the image was taken from the internet from a personal reliable source which some of my works are contributed to. However, some viewers or users may find the image displays an inappropriate file which undoubtedly does contain a graphic image or a file uncommonly portrayed and used. Therefore, I will accept the deletion request if the file is partly reported stated above.

If the file is requested through its file name, then I will simply rename the file. However, my conclusion of the file is not copyrighted or taken from other sources according to any whatsoever degree of illegal licensing.

Deletion Request/Copyrighted imagesEdit

This discussion is regarding a deletion request reportedly been uploaded through copyright.

File name (image): Dambuhalang_titi_ng_Negro_na_hindi_tuli_at_lubasan_naka_tayo.jpg ‎(316 × 316 pixels, file size: 31 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)

I would like a viable reason for the deletion request. However if it is a copyright file, I would like a strong copy of the reported copyright file or link but greatly want the returned for educational purposes of the matter not mainly because of its graphic content to the eyes of certain viewers.

File:Older Lamborghini Front View.jpg Deletion of the ImageEdit

Hello Gbawden, I understand to the regard of File:Older Lamborghini Front View.jpg that is blurry and obscured. You may delete my image but originally I was going to save that image later on in my car album in my gallery. --MTSRider18 (talk) 05:21, 3 February 2017 (UTC)MTSRider18

Photo licenseEdit

Dear Gbawden,

The photos sources are come from, basically I am on behalf of HKJC to upload those visuals to wikipedia under free license. About this issue, I have already send a email to one of wikipedia representative, he named Chris Brown. And he will help to made the necessary adjustments to all the files. So there are no license problems here, I could share the relevant documents or email if needed.

Thanks, Chris

Hi thereEdit

Please have a look at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Enmanuel2307. Do we have a case of "deleted files re-uploaded" here? Thanks. --E4024 (talk) 23:42, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Combi logo.svgEdit

Hello, it looks like you forgot to close the discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Combi logo.svg, though you marked the file as kept. clpo13(talk) 16:48, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

@Clpo13: Thanks. I missed that one Gbawden (talk) 06:35, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files on User:BevinKacon/Badstock6Edit

You closed Commons:Deletion requests/Files on User:BevinKacon/Badstock6 as Keep files in use giving "INUSE" as the reason, but COM:INUSE seems to supports their deletion. Could you explain this decision? Thank you.--BevinKacon (talk) 15:38, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi. There is a strong precedent that if a file is INUSE on a project then it is good enough to keep on commons. While INUSE seems to give us reason to delete, not every admin shares that opinion. I have seen other admins being told off for trying to delete files that are INUSE. I have been following that thinking. FWITW - I completely agree with you. Perhaps this is worth a wider discussion Gbawden (talk) 06:29, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
You'd need to either edit the reason for keeping, reclose as delete, or revert to be closed by someone else.--BevinKacon (talk) 11:49, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
Oh I just noticed you are new admin, I would've attempted to be more sympathetic if I noticed. Relax more and don't feel under pressure if someone disagrees with you.--BevinKacon (talk) 16:33, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

File:Oona Garthwaite singing at the Log Cabin Meadow, Golden Gate Park, sunny San Francisco.jpgEdit

Would you please consider restoring this file? The uploader makes a plausible case that he is the author, so IMO we should tag it as missing permission. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:42, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

@Magog the Ogre: Hi. Done. I have tagged it as missing permission Gbawden (talk) 06:25, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

UAWS ImagesEdit

Hi Gbawden,

Why did you delete the images? This nomination was done months ago, and nobody mentioned OTRS. If you believe that this is an appropriate course of action, why not suggest it before taking a drastic and destructive action? From my comments, it should have been obvious, that no copyright laws have been violated. Rather, it's a question of formalities and technicalities, so why this sudden action?
I respectfully ask to restore the images. 凰兰时罗 (talk) 15:07, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
@凰兰时罗: You have had since October to obtain permission. I suggest you obtain the permission via OTRS and request undeletion Gbawden (talk) 06:10, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
No, I did NOT have since October, because nobody ever mentioned the need for OTRS, and nobody ever replied to my post! Please restore the images, point me to the correct procedure, and I will help UAWS to jump through the hoops. I believe that Wikipedia is about people cooperating for the common good, and if we want to achieve this, good communication is essential. Why not reply to my post and explain about this OTRS, why take a deleterious action instead? 凰兰时罗 (talk) 14:56, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
A Deletion Request was your notification! I merely closed it - after almost 5 months. I consider this matter closed. As I said, if you want it undeleted follow the process. The deletion request was valid Gbawden (talk) 06:06, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Please point me to the appropriate policy that justifies your actions. Please be specific. I read through Commons:Deletion policy, and I am not sure that your actions or even your new demands for OTRS are appropriate.
On top of that, I see this incident as an example of very poor communication skills on the side of both you and the original nominee. I explained the situation immediately after the nomination was made, and the best course of action would been to communicate with me, not to take drastic action after months of dead silence. I believe that such poor communication skills may be excusable for a regular user, but inappropriate for an administrator, entrusted with taking actions. 凰兰时罗 (talk) 17:37, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
My question still stands. I now suspect that the deletion was inappropriate altogether. Please point to specific guidelines that would justify the deletion and the OTRS demands for this particular case. 凰兰时罗 (talk) 14:45, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
Please see COM:LL - "Unless the uploader is the copyright holder, we require proof that the copyright holder released the work under the license." That proof was lacking thus the file was nominated in the first place and then deleted. Gbawden (talk) 07:36, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Arly Jover new photoEdit

Hello Gbawden. First of all, I wanted to thank you for looking out and making sure there are no copyright violations here. Now, you said that there maybe one in the new photo that was loaded for Arly Jover. Let me assure you there is not. The photo is mine. I took it. If TimeArt has it and uses it in there webpage, it is because I aloud it. I gave it to them.

Best regards

@Arly Jover: Please could you upload a file with the exif data or supply some kind of proof of ownership? Please comment on the deletion discussion page so everyone sees it Gbawden (talk) 08:12, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Undelete request- FILE: Wang_Leehom_-_Best_Actor1.jpgEdit

Hi @Gbawden: Please kindly undelete the file as the photo is provided by Hongsheng Culture for free use on all social media as well as any website that is related to the artist. I've also received permission to freely use these photos that they sent. Therefore this and other similar photos will appear on various articles and sites that reported on the artist winning the award. Thank you. Kievew (talk) 07:38, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

@Kievew: Please post this request at COM:UDR. You will need to provide the permission to OTRS - without this permission the file will not be undeleted Gbawden (talk) 09:54, 3 April 2019 (UTC)


It looks like some unfulfilled requests of yours have been at User:CommonsDelinker/commands for a long time, you might want to check them. Jmabel ! talk 23:19, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Hi. I see a few duplicates that I processed. Is there something I still need to do? I can't see an option for processing. Sorry this is relatively new to me Gbawden (talk) 06:21, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
If the remaining status is a notice back to you that delinker can't do anything about the image, you would do well to remove that. Presumably no one other than you has any way to follow up further. - Jmabel ! talk 20:14, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Re:File copyright statusEdit

Hello Gbawden, I've received a warning message by you in my talk page this morning, but I can't figure out about what kind of files you were referring to. Could you be more explicit, please? Thank you. --Mess (talk) 19:45, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Subrata Koloi.jpg: kept or deleted?Edit

Hello. You closed Commons:Deletion requests/File:Subrata Koloi.jpg as Deleted, but File:Subrata Koloi.jpg still exists and you tagged its talk page with {{kept}}. I think one of those may have been a mistake. --bjh21 (talk) 10:18, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

@Bjh21: My bad. Fixed. Thanks for spotting it Gbawden (talk) 10:25, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Glammis CastleEdit

Should not be renamed. I debated this to myself when I uploaded the image. Canmore is a modern reference resource and sanitised version of Scottish history. In the the book the image comes from The baronial and ecclesiastical antiquities of Scotland (1852)by Billings it is named Glammis (Angus). In The earth and its inhabitants by Élisée Reclus and edited by Ravenstein on page 366 you can see it spelt as Glammis, and I could go on and on. Glamis as a spelling was only fixed on, relatively recently in history. Please change it back. The modern mis-spelling here, acts as a signpost to the researcher to investigate alternative spellings. I'm all for correcting modern day spelling goofs (I only found one yesterday made by the Imperial War Museum made in the 50s or later who misspelt what the artist was telling them on his drawing), but not historical correct spellings. Still Billings beats Canmore everytime. Again, move the file back to its correct original spelling Glammis. Can you explain to me why as the original uploader, spelling it as given in the original source this file was renamed? Regards --Broichmore (talk) 09:49, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
@Broichmore:Hi. The request to rename came from Finavon so he would need to explain his reasoning. I merely processed it as it appeared to be a reasonable request for renaming Gbawden (talk) 10:45, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
My explanation is on the image Talk page. Glammis, Angus is fine but Glammis alone survives for another location now in Fife. I do not have a technical knowledge of the relative authority of different sources. I don't have the same strength of feeling as Broichmore so either filename is acceptable. Perhaps the page description should show the source caption (ie Glammis Castle) and indicate that it is now known as Glamis Castle. Finavon (talk) 10:25, 12 April 2019 (UTC)


I am away on holiday and will only be back after Easter and will attend to my talk page messages or alerts then Gbawden (talk) 12:56, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

File:صبح مه گرفته در دره نیوکاسل استرالیا.jpgEdit

At Commons:Deletion requests/File:صبح مه گرفته در دره نیوکاسل استرالیا.jpg, regarding File:File:صبح مه گرفته در دره نیوکاسل استرالیا.jpg, you granted the deletion requested by the uploader. However the relevant criteria covers only files uploaded in the previous week, and I find it strange that this would be the only file (among eleven) with deletion requested by the uploader on 19 April which was a indeed a recent upload. Furthermore, there are grounds to keep this file (although I only saw it briefly) — please cp. Commons:Deletion requests/File:یک صبح مه گرفته در دره نیوکاسل استرالیا.jpg. Are you sure this deletion was properly justified? -- Tuválkin 11:28, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

@Tuvalkin: Hi. This user posted a request to delete his posts at the Admin noticeboard and has been bugging the admins to speedy delete them Gbawden (talk) 13:29, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes, that’s where I knew about these files. Insistence should push admins into conceding, though. -- Tuválkin 14:53, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
