File tagging File:Ashlee Marie Preston.jpgEdit

I have gotten permission from Ashlee Marie Preston for using that image and to add credit to the photographer. She sent off an email to OPS giving permission to use the image.

Livinginthepink (talk) 18:29, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Hey Livinginthepink. Unfortunately, we generally cannot accept these types of permissions sent from generic email addresses. As I'm sure you can understand, anyone could register an email to the effect of or and send one of these permissions. For that reason, they need to come from an official domain that can be verified independently as belonging to the subject, or they need to be done in some other verifiable way, such as appending a statement to an official website.

Flickr human review needed listEdit

Do you see anything obviously wrong with that idea? If not, I'll copy it to VPP. I like having some extra (fresh) eyes on these things, even if you have no comment or opinion otherwise. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 14:18, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Re: File:ROKiT Williams Racing Formula One Team, 2019 logo.jpgEdit

Ok, thanks to explained me. So, now we must delete all the Williams logos uploaded here in Commons... right? --Danyele (talk) 18:25, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

If you are aware of similarly licensed images that are from the UK, then yes, they probably should be nominated for deletion here and then moved locally over to the English Wikipedia (or some other project that also allows local uploads of files only free in the US). The UK uses a "sweat of the brow" standard for copyright, and not one principly based in an assessment of original creative contribution, like...countries that have copyright laws that aren't stupid. GMGtalk 18:29, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
I understand, thank u again for your explanations about UK standards :-) Danyele (talk) 18:33, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
Hey, no problem at all. If I can ever be of any help feel free to stop by. GMGtalk 18:34, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

The image File:Francesco-Lotoro-Ph.-Giuseppe-Marchisella.jpgEdit

Hello, i'am writing from Italy and i need to delete this image because I tried to upload it so that my name appear as a photographer, Giuseppe Marchisella, but something went wrong in setting the license. Sorry. Can you help me to delete it? Thank you. User: Pino Marchisella 20:42, 01 March 2019 (CET)

@Pino Marchisella: Both images have been nominated for deletion. It appears that these images have been taken from online, as there are multiple preexisting versions available. In order for them to be kept, the creator and owner of the copyright needs to send verification in accordance with instructions at COM:CONSENT. GMGtalk 19:48, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
The photo is mine. Pino and Giuseppe is the same name in Italy. That image was used many times on internet and I'am the Author, the photographer. I asked you to delete only the second file i uploaded, not the first, beacause only in the uploading the second file something went wrong (about the license setting). Thank you. User: Pino Marchisella 20:59, 01 March 2019 (CET)
@Pino Marchisella: You should still send verification of your identity at permissions-commons since the photos have been used elsewhere. Once your identity is verified, then no one should give you any trouble. The correspondence is private, and a volunteer will merely place a reference number on your user page indicating your identity has been verified. GMGtalk 20:04, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I sent the verification using the button "Interactive Release Generator", in 5 steps. The last step was that to send a text (in a green box) to the email address Thank you very much. User: Pino Marchisella 21:29, 01 March 2019 (CET)

Dear GreenMeansGo, let me ask you a question: having sent a verification of my identity to the address you indicated to me, i would like to know if will be preserved both copies of the same image uploaded by me or just one. Thank you. User:Pino Marchisella 22:12, 01 March 2019 (CET)

Hey User:Pino Marchisella. We generally don't retain exact duplicates of files in the same file format. GMGtalk 21:26, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
OK, then retain the first one I uploaded because it's a little bigger. Thank you User:Pino Marchisella 22:34, 01 March 2019 (CET)

Hello, i received on this page ( an OTRS notification that says to contact a volunteer who owns an OTRS account, so I wrote a message on user talk: Krd, but nobody answered me. In the notification they talk about an email that is waiting to be managed, and i believe it be the email I sent for the verification of my identity as the Author of the image "Francesco Lotoro.jpg". Please, can you do something to help me? Thank you User:Pino Marchisella 11:33, 02 March 2019 (CET)

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Pino Marchisella (talk • contribs) 10:33, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Hey Pino Marchisella. When you sent the OTRS email, you should have gotten an automatic reply with a ticket number. If you can provide this number it will make it much easier to find your message in the system. GMGtalk 13:18, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Hello GreenMeansGo, first of all thanks for your answer. I received an email with two links: the first one to confirm the email address and the second to cancel the email address confirmation. I clicked on the first one. I don't see a ticket number inside this email. Now let me ask you a question: why my photo on wikimedia was canceled before ending the verification? I no longer see it in the page on "Francesco Lotoro". All is very strange. I am the author of that image and something prevents to release it with a creative commons license! Why? If necessary, I can send the photo of my identity card. Please, i ask you for advice on what to do.Thank you. Pino Marchisella (talk) 13:19, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Hey Pino Marchisella. Well the photo isn't really "gone", it's just hidden until the details are verified and then an administrator can restore it. I did find the email at Ticket:2019030110007209.
It's not that anyone is questioning whether you are telling the truth; it's just that we have to verify the details. The thing is, I'm not entirely sure how to verify the details on this one. You can verify your identity to be sure, but I don't see anywhere online where the photo is credited to you. If so, then that would be independent verification of you as the author. Otherwise, I'm not sure how we verify that you are the original author and copyright holder. I'm going to ping a couple of other OTRS volunteer to see if they have any ideas. @Yann: @AntiCompositeNumber: GMGtalk 14:08, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi, if you need a web source where the photo is credited to me, i send you the link to this 2014 article on the Famedisud Magazine Pino Marchisella (talk) 14:24, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Ah ha! Yes Pino Marchisella, è perfetto. If you can send in some type of document that verifies you're identity, then I'll verify your account and request that the image be restored. Usually something like a government issued identification or passport will do, so long as it's not otherwise available online. GMGtalk 14:47, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
OK, thank you, i can send a copy of my identity card (so called in Italy, "Carta di Identità") issued by the government; just let me know which email address I have to send to Pino Marchisella (talk) 16:03, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Pino Marchisella, if you have the automated reply (the "Thank you for your email. This is an automatically generated response..."), then you can just reply to that message. GMGtalk 16:23, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
  Comment I have undeleted the file. The permission can be validated when the ID is received. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:17, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks Yann. GMGtalk 18:21, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you all. I inform you that I sent my ID card by email about 5 hours ago. Please, let me know when the procedure is complete. Regards. Pino Marchisella (talk) 02:28, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
@Pino Marchisella: I'm not seeing the email anywhere when I search for your name. I sent a reply to the earlier email. If you can resend it in reply to that message it should be easier for us to find. GMGtalk 13:14, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Hello, i sent you again my ID Card. I hope you received it. Please, let me know if everything is OK; otherwise, give me a specific email address by which to send it again. Thank you Pino Marchisella (talk) 10:36, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Hey Pino Marchisella. I'm still not seeing it anywhere. Are you sending to the same address: permissions-commons Apologies again that this is becoming so difficult. GMGtalk 13:19, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Hello, i sent my ID Card to that email address and i received an automatically generated response with ticket number (#2019030810003469). I hope now everything is OK. Pino Marchisella (talk) 13:23, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
Pino Marchisella   Done I've verified your account and the image. Should you like to upload other images that have been previously published and credited to you, then you should need only to reference the account verification on your user page. If I can ever be of any help with any other issues feel free to let me know. Thanks for contributing the image, and for your patience while we got all this sorted out. GMGtalk 13:38, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
OK, thank you very much Pino Marchisella (talk) 13:50, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Senator Fernald, Hale, Keyes, Moses, Nicholson LOC npcc.04287.tifEdit

Thanks for the ping.

WRT badly eroded historic photographs, my instinct is to keep the scans, but I am aware that this example is an extreme case and the scan itself looks poor even to represent the damage. Not resisting a deletion, but just pointing out that where photographs are historic, even very badly damaged versions may be useful for comparison, digital reconstruction using tools that may be available in a few years, or even AI search methods that might be able to point out that this photograph is identical to a better one in a different online archive.

With regard to another matter, hopefully you are aware of why events have superseded my personal involvement in anything that others might point to as controversy.   -- (talk) 15:55, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, I've been going through Category:National Photo Company Collection on and off for a little while now. I normally keep and categorize photos even if they're fairly badly damaged. I think this was the first one that I came across that was so badly damaged it was virtually destroyed. GMGtalk 16:11, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Incidentally, I have a draft worked up at w:User:GreenMeansGo/sandbox#The gap gap in case you're in for some light reading. GMGtalk 16:44, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey Tomanek Jan. If you own the copyright to the posters, and wish to license them for free public use, then you will need to send verification of this in accordance with instructions at COM:CONSENT. We require this type of verification in order to protect both the rights of copyright holders, as well as those who may reuse the content believing it to be free. GMGtalk 12:37, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks - I just sent this mail for all those posters.
