Autopatrol givenEdit

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, you can now share images from Flickr using the UploadWizard, batch-upload up to 500 files with UploadWizard instead of 50 and upload freely licensed audio files in the MP3 format. Thank you. --Thibaut120094 (talk) 14:57, 11 May 2016 (UTC)


Bonjour Gratus,

Pour info tu as le gadget PermissionOTRS que tu peux activer dans tes préférences qui te permet d'ajouter plus facilement les permissions OTRS, t'a aussi le gadget COM:VFC pour appliquer la permission sur plusieurs fichiers en un clic.

Cordialement. Thibaut120094 (talk) 14:53, 11 May 2016 (UTC)


Hi Gratus,

Can you take a look whether these files fall under ticket:2016071610003201 or rediscuss them with the uploader?

Basvb (talk) 15:07, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Basvb : Hello, this ticket is for File:Kadour naimi theâtre conteur meddah clap cinema 1969.jpg only. Please note that the account Kadour naimi wich are imported these picture has been verified. I thinks more autorisation if not needed if we can affirmate that Kadour naimi is the owner of this picture (as productor for example).--Gratus (talk) 18:21, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
Dear Gratus,
Thank you for your answer and the clarifications. The other files are mainly by other authors, for the cordonnier file there seems to be permission within ticket:2016071510009715. For now I'll just leave the images as they are (do nothing to speed up their keep/deletion). Greetings, Basvb (talk) 09:09, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Your RfA, and thank youEdit

Hi Gratus,
I'm just formally letting you know that I have now closed your recent RfA as unsuccessful under the snowball clause and due to the number of oppose votes cast there. While this attempt was unsuccessful, I would definitely suggest that you consider re-applying in the future after you gain some experience on this project and gain deeper understanding of Commons policies and procedures. With that said, I would also like to re-iterate my thanks for your contributions to this project (and the movement) as an OTRS volunteer; while most of your work might be unseen by the wider public, please know that a lot of people are aware that it is hard and thankless most of the time, and we deeply appreciate your commitment and your involvement. Thank you! odder (talk) 19:51, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Your VFC installation method is deprecatedEdit

Hello Gratus, 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 enable the VFC gadget in your preferences. Thanks! --VFC devs (q) 16:23, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks :) --Gratus (talk) 16:29, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

File:Dickson Yu Tak Shing.jpgEdit

Hello, Gratus. Could you continue to handle my picture? Thank you. Gm King (talk) 00:54, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

@Gm King: Hello, I'm sorry but I can't really handle this picture through OTRS since I have a poor level in english. If you're the copyright's holder, can you re-send an email with a proof of your identity (like an official and verifiable email's address) ? Regards.--Gratus (talk) 08:37, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gratus: I have sent a new email with the original photo and copyright registration to OTRS team, you could check this ticket number: [Ticket#2017081310005264] . Thank you. Gm King (talk) 12:43, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gm King: It seem your picture was already in the Internet (see my email). If you were posted your picture on the net, it will be OK if your give the original post with an proof it's you. I really sorry but, as OTRS member, we must be formal and we can't take any risk. Regards.--Gratus (talk) 18:44, 13 August 2017 (UTC)


Could you also help to handle this photo uploaded to my Flickr [1]? Thank you. Gm King (talk) 15:00, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

@Gratus: Sorry, I don't know what is the meaning of "Verified accounts" on my talk page. And could I remove two tags by FlickreviewR on two pages? Gm King (talk) 16:36, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gratus: Should I need to add a template of "License review needed" if I upload my photo from my Flickr to here? Gm King (talk) 16:58, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gm King: You are free. You can choose any licence which are accepted on Commons. If you want, you can put a link to your Flickr's picture, add the Flickr's licence and add {{Flickrreview}} to confirmate it. --Gratus (talk) 17:07, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gratus: I'm a Flickr reviewers now? Gm King (talk) 17:13, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
No, it's only said that you have your picture on Flickr's too, and you share it with the same licence. The template give, after verification by admins or trusted user, a proof that the file was under this licence on Flickr when the template was verified. --Gratus (talk) 17:19, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gm King: For example : YourNewFile.jpg
You can put the file on CC-BY-SA 4.0 (or others accepted licence) because you are Gm King with your account verified (you have not to give a proof of your identity, it's already made).
You can put the file under CC-BY-SA 2.0 because it is on Flickr, then the {{Flickrreview}} give of proof of that.
You can made these two actions in the same time.
--Gratus (talk) 17:32, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Like your work on File:Dickson Yu Tak Shing.jpg? Gm King (talk) 17:47, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes. --Gratus (talk) 17:49, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
I would like to thank you for your time and patience because I'm a newbie here. Gm King (talk) 17:56, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gm King: There is no problem. It's me who should thank you for uploading pictures of quality.--Gratus (talk) 17:58, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Gratus. Can you take a look at this picture which was added "OTRS received" ? 天馬松風 (talk) 16:19, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

@天馬松風: Hello, this permission is not valid because we have not the proof that the sender of this request is the copyright owner. Regards. --Gratus (talk) 09:15, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
@Gratus: It will be ok if providing the original photo & copyright registration? 天馬松風 (talk) 09:26, 26 August 2017 (UTC)


Hello, Gratus. Excuse me, I have the photo but not processed now. Could you help to check? Thank you. Kelvin Hui (talk) 08:00, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

Hello Kelvin Hui, it seem there is a discussion about this ticket. You should ask to @Josve05a: which have apposed the template. Maybe he know more about this situation. Regards. --Gratus (talk) 08:38, 29 October 2017 (UTC)


Aloha! I just restored two files upon your request, File:PhilippePoreeKurrer Vancouver 01102018.jpg and File:Philippe Porée-Kurrer.jpg. Did the actual photographer or the uploader send permission? Sorry, can't look that up myself anymore, I quit OTRS last year. Thanks! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:44, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

@Hedwig in Washington: Hi! Thanks for the restoration. Yes, the copyright holder send valid permission, it's confirmed now the files are restored (it's far more easy to check when we can see the content ^^). Regards.--Gratus (talk) 03:50, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
Excellent! Thanks for your fast reply! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:49, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
