Eulenburg deleted fileEdit
Re: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Philipp-Fuerst-von-Eulenburg_%281847-1921%29.jpg We have the same problem (unknown authorship) also for these pictures from the same scandal and the same years:
Philipp zu Eulenburg-Hertefeld.jpg
Moltke, Kuno von (1847-1923) sett 1900 a Costantinopoli - Atelier Walsleben Breslau.jpg
Kuno von Moltke.jpg
- Thanks for the notice. While this is by no means "official" policy, i wouldn't press the first one for example: with a creation date of 1882 it would be unlikely enough (for my preferences), that the author died 70+ years ago (adding 50 years should make this safe enough for all images created before 1893). Also for some pictures it may be possible to claim "PD-anonymous" for Germany. Two facts must be shown: the file has to be published 70+ years ago and there must be some evidence/proof, that the author's name wasn't disclosed in the publication (or they used a pseudonym for an unknown real author). Hope that info helps a bit, but i am not going to nominate those images myself. GermanJoe (talk) 13:21, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
- Please remind to always answer on the discussion page of the writer, not on yours, otherwise the writer could now know you answered.
- I know the rules very well, and they apply both on the image you nominated and on those I called your attention upon. Since you don't want to nominate them (why?) I made myself a page with several cases similar to the one you nominated, please cast your vote for their deletion. Thank you.

Your VFC installation method is deprecatedEdit
Hello GermanJoe, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well. A detailed explanation can be found here. Important: To prevent problems please remove the old VFC installation code from your common.js and instead in your preferences. Thanks! --VFC devs (q) 16:23, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
