File:Polistil VG2 pong console.jpgEdit

Hello

I think that the best action would be to remove the television from the image and leave only the console.

--Arosio Stefano (talk) 11:20, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Logo of Three's CompanyEdit

Hi! I completed your request on Graphics Lab. The resulting image can be seen here. Best regards, --Ivi104 (talk) 09:57, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Kelsey GrammerEdit

Hi, George. Glad you like the image. That Nikon camera I used was such a joy -- I'd still use it, but the auto-focus motor went bad, and I just haven't been able to face how much it'll cost to fix.

Not sure how Getty Images figures in -- I took the photo myself at that Tony Awards event in a Manhattan hotel. I guess I'm unsure of the question. But anything I can do to help, just let me know! --Tenebrae (talk) 23:04, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

VI tag failedEdit

Hi George Ho, although your VIC nomination was successful and File:Damien Chazelle (cropped).jpg was promoted, the bot failed to tag the image, this is possibly because the image file is protected. DeFacto (talk). 07:36, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi DeFacto. I changed the status to "supported". You can re-promote it when the image is not protected, or I can change to "promoted". --George Ho (talk) 10:41, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
@George Ho: that won't work here. I think the problem is that the image file is protected, so the bot couldn't add the VI seal to the image. The reason given for the protection is that the file is transcluded in Commons:Auto-protected files/wikipedia/en. DeFacto (talk). 20:47, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
The image is no longer cascaded, DeFacto. What about "re-promoting" it to VI? --George Ho (talk) 10:15, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the update. The image is now correctly tagged. DeFacto (talk). 18:09, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Altering a PD-Text ImageEdit

Hello, I am planning on uploading some images of record labels that may fall under Public Domain - Text and would like to ask you a question, as you seem to have experience with these types of images. Some record labels simply contain text of the track listing along with a small logo of the record company's logo. Are there any restrictions with altering the image to remove the logo (so that it image would qualify as Public Domain - Text)? Thank you. --Amineshaker (talk) 00:16, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Amineshaker. There is {{PD-textlogo}}. You can create a derivate, but not in similar file pages. Though I don't own record labels and pages, any change would affect reader viewership. Nevertheless, I would neither encourage nor discourage a change. COM:VP or COM:VPCOPY may be suitable venues for more answers. Also, there is Commons:Derivative works. Please notify me before making a change to any of my uploads. Thank you. --George Ho (talk) 03:01, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

yoEdit

I put US and Chinese allies down on it to represent the actual sides of the cold war better.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Ranger Aragorn (talk • contribs) 06:50, 5 March 2017‎ (UTC) (UTC)
Hi, Ranger Aragorn. Well, you're welcome to make maps of such things here in Commons. However, at Wikipedia, verification to represent the alliances is needed, even when true. May you create a new file without replacing the current version, i.e. create a different file without affecting File:Sino-US 2.png? Or may you replace the current version of the file? --George Ho (talk) 06:56, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Pat Nixon StatueEdit

Hi George, I just now saw an email notice that an image I took and uploaded was deleted here back in December (I don't check my Wiki emails very often.) The reason wasn't really clear to me, so I was wondering if you could clarify the reason for the deletion. Thanks, Bahooka (talk) 15:55, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Replied to your talk page. --George Ho (talk) 16:02, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Template:UnsignedEdit

Hi. Thank you for this edit. However, I am confused about it. You seem to prefer adding an empty third parameter to Template:Unsigned, which is unnecessary. You also seem to prefer this template to Template:Unsigned2, even though they function identically if one rearranges their parameters. Please help me to understand these preferences.

Additionally, you seem to prefer adding "(UTC)" when these templates already do that for you, causing "(UTC)" to appear doubled on the page (understandable since your home wiki is English Wikipedia, which doesn't do that for you). Please don't add "(UTC)" to these templates here.   — Jeff G. ツ 14:12, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

I didn't know, Jeff, that Commons's "unsigned2" doesn't function the same as en.WP's version. I'll be careful. George Ho (talk) 20:18, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, George.   — Jeff G. ツ 22:22, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Re:File:Joe Louis Statue.jpgEdit

The photo in question was taken years ago at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The person poising with the statue is my son. In other words I took a picture of my son posing with the Joe Louis Statue. At the time that the image was uploaded I had no knowledge of who the creator might be. If the image is improper and or violets any rules, then feel free to delete it. 2600:8800:C80:8EF0:5D11:2F3:733:95AA 03:14, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for getting a picture of the late en:Robert MilesEdit

Thank you for getting a picture of the late en:Robert Miles on the page. I feel the admins were being a bit heavy handed not letting us use a picture of him under fair use (see this page for that discussion), but I am glad that Salim Lamrani very generously donated a picture of him to the Wikipedia and you were able to help make that happen to honor Miles’ memory. This is the best solution. Samboy (talk) 02:59, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

OTRS agent?Edit

Hi George Ho. As you may know, OTRS is seriously backlogged. I have seen your meticulous work in obtaining permission from copyright holders. Do you want to give us a helping hand with OTRS backlog? If so, please apply to become an OTRS agent at m:OTRS/Volunteering. Thank you. 4nn1l2 (talk) 22:31, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

File:Abramovich_dan.jpgEdit

Hello. Why did you say that the first version is not in compliance with license?--Pierpao.lo (listening) 08:44, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Pierpao. I can say that MFO has released anything marked with "Copyright: MFO" under CC BY-SA but just low-res versions. MFO has been very strict on hi-res ones, so CC BY-SA would not apply to such versions. I figured that bloating the image into bigger size (but still in similar low-res) may violate the licensing terms because MFO intends to give out photos in smaller sizes for anyone to freely use, but I could be proven wrong.
