Deletion RequestEdit

This discussion is regarding a deletion request reportedly been uploaded through copyright. I (PUECH P.-F.) am concerned by: Deletion requests/File:Deposizione (Deposition) 1915 Yules P Van Biesbrueck.jpg I agree and ask you to withdraw the picture. Please accept my thanks PF Puech — Preceding unsigned comment added by PUECH P.-F. (talk • contribs) 17:42, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Deletion Request/Copyrighted imagesEdit

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.

Regards, Parker Phy

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.

I got the information that you requested deleting the file: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adodo_Eddy_Osaman#/media/File:Osaman_in_2018.jpg

I want you to look at this photo on Wikipedia: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page#/media/File:Anna_Kournikova_DF-SD-04-04709.jpg and tell me how this photo is for educational purposes as you claim, yet it was featured today on Wikipedia's homepage! I can search out millions of photos of people on wikipedia which do not even meet the educational criteria you claim, yet they are on Wikipedia for years. Please do not delete Osaman in 2018.jpg as it meets the same requirements in the sample photo in the link I sent

Please participate in the Universal Code of Conduct consultation on Wikimedia Commons!Edit

Dear Gbawden

Thank you for your hard work to create the sum of all knowledge that is freely sharable to every single human being across the world. As our diverse community grows, we need a guideline that will help all of our work collectively and constructively where everyone feels safe, welcomed, and part of a team. That is why the Wikimedia movement is working on establishing a global guideline called the Universal Code of Conduct, often referred to as UCoC.

After the months-long policy consultation, we have prepared a policy (available in many languages) that has been ratified by the Board of Trustees. We’re currently in the second phase of the process. During this round of consultation, we want to discuss the implementation of this policy. As a member of the functionary team of Wikimedia Commons, your opinion on enforcement is of great value. We want to hear from you on how this policy can be enforced on the Wikimedia Commons community and what might be needed to do so. There are a few enforcement questions so you can easily outline your answers based on them. Please do not hesitate to bring any more questions/challenges you think are not yet discussed.

The discussion is taking place on Commons:Universal Code of Conduct consultation. You can also share your thoughts by replying to this message (Please ping me so I get notified), posting your message on my talk page. I am aware that some thoughts cannot be expressed publicly, so you can always share your opinion by emailing me as well.

As a valued member of the Commons community, please share your thoughts, ideas, and experiences that relate to UCoC. Let us know what needs to be improved so we can build a more friendly and cooperative space to increase editor engagement and retention of new users.

Wikimedia projects are governed by you. So, it is you who needs to step up to ensure a safe, comfortable, and pleasant working environment.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you! Wikitanvir (WMF) (talk) 10:18, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Please take a short survey regarding UCoCEdit

Hello Gbawden,

I would like to inform you that we now have a survey in place to take part in the UCoC consultation. It is not a long one and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. You can take the survey even if you have already participated in the on-wiki consultation. It has a different set of questions and allows you to participate anonymously and privately.

As a member of the Commons functionaries, your opinion is especially essential. Please click here to participate in the survey.

You are still welcome to participate in the on-wiki discussions. If you prefer you can have your say by sending me an email. You can also drop me an email if you want to have a one-to-one chat.

Thank you for your participation! Wikitanvir (WMF) 13:53, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

regarding image deletions from the Symeon Shimin pageEdit

hi - either the images were pulled directly from the website regarding his art or provided by his family for me to use in the creation of this page. Symeon Shimin is no longer living and his daughter requested my help in creating wiki page to honor her father. all of the pictured of his art were provided by her. or taken directly off her website about him. which I've cited all sources, as well as responded to it being unpublished due to him still being alive which isn't the case.
