User:geagea it is a cropped version of an original which has been uploaded to Wikipedia, by someone who say they are the copyright holder of that picture. Do you have any reason to doubt that? Huldra (talk) 20:38, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
Yes. I added the link to the original file and tag the original and the cropped as no permission. -- Geagea (talk) 05:20, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
User:geagea Ok, so why do you doubt that the uploader have the copyright? Have you contacted freekhalidajarrar@gmail.com? Huldra (talk) 10:23, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
If a file uploaded prior elsewhere in the net we need permission for that by COM:OTRS system. This file looks like photo from an interview (TV?). The uploader clam to be the creator of the file not freekhalidajarrar@gmail.com. The link was added by me. The uploader or you can contact to freekhalidajarrar@gmail.com and ask if they own the copyright and if they can release it under one of our license. -- Geagea (talk) 10:33, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

QuestionEdit

User:Huldra, since I know that you are more experienced than I in this particular field, how can I go about adding a category to a certain image that I uploaded to Commons?Davidbena (talk) 02:33, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

User:Davidbena well, it is just like adding a category to an article on en.wp: like I did here: here, adding [[Category:Bayt Nattif]] to one of your pictures, (Thanks for the pictures, btw!) --Huldra (talk) 20:20, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
You're most welcome. Eventually, I hope to get around to other towns and villages here, in our beautiful country, to take more pictures and have them uploaded to Wikimedia Commons.Davidbena (talk) 22:11, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

Les arts arabesEdit

Hello, Huldra! Just thought I’d drop you a line in case there are any other plates you particularly want, or you’d like any specific details cropped out or cleaned up for use as illustrations.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 19:32, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so much! the picture you uploaded looks great! I have put a "wish list" at Commons:Village pump , cheers, Huldra (talk) 20:20, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Renaming imagesEdit

Hello Huldra- I noticed that you decided to rename many (most) of my images that had "Israel" in the title to "Palestine". Political discussions aside, you have broken multiple links on Featured Pictures that now do not connect with the voting pages. I will give you a chance to respond before I seek admin intervention. Godot13 (talk) 03:00, 28 March 2019 (UTC)


I have also noticed you have changed image names e.g. adding a number to https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Recueil_de_cent_estampes_representant_differentes_nations_du_Levant This breaks links to these images. Please do not do this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Graeme374

User:Graeme374, other wp pages which use these pictures should be automatically relinked, if not, please show me which are not. Also, now the pictures are named according to the numbers which Vanmour in his day gave them; so now you can immediately see if anything is missing. Huldra (talk) 20:50, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Hudra, Images on commons.wikimedia.org are open to use by all, not just wikipedia. Btw, Vanmour did not give these numbers, they were given by the publisher of "Recueil de cent estampes representant differentes nations du Levant". Vanmour produced many more paintings than the 100 on which the engravings were based. See some paintings by Vanmour at [2]http://warfare.tk/Ottoman/Vanmour/Vanmour-painting.htm

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Graeme374

User:Graeme374, I realize that he made other pictures, the thing is, that these pictures came in many various forms and I wanted to be able to compare them. It basically started with finding the book on archive, see https://archive.org/details/gri_33125015119957/page/n6, which had the pictures in colour. I wanted to upload them but noted that my copies were much "duller" than the one on archive. Compare this upload with this original, so I abandoned the project. But then you can see that it would be useful to immediately compare the different versions of the same picture, so you would know which to use.
Anyway, I did this back in January, I have since learned that there is a much more easy way to "order" the plates in a book: you can just "pipe" the page number. I started doing that here. If I had known about that back in January, I would have done that, and not moved the pictures. Ah well, live and learn, Huldra (talk) 20:51, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Disputed territoriesEdit

Concerning your renamings (palestine instead of Israel), could this be remembered :

ProposalEdit

That the files be renamed omitting both Israel and Palestine, and simply go by the city name. Each file would begin with "Jerusalem". That seems to be the most neutral point of view, no? -Godot13 (talk) 05:45, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

  • User:Godot13, regarding places in East Jerusalem: I agree. (Israel has annexed part of East Jerusalem, and views it as Israeli territory, but no other country in the world accept that.) If you look at my contributions, this is exactly what I have been doing lately.
  • When it comes to places which 100% are in Israel after 1948 (say, Tel Aviv) then they can obviously be called "Tel Aviv, Israel", etc. (If I ever came across a file named "Tel Aviv, Palestine" from after 1948, I would of course change that to "Tel Aviv, Israel".)
  • When it comes to places on the West Bank which zero countries claim are in Israel, (say, places in Bethlehem, Jericho, Hebron, Ramallah, Nablus), then I don't see why we cannot say they are in Palestine, or the Palestinian territories. (I have corrected lots and lots of files which falsly stated "Bethlehem, Israel" or "Hebron, Israel", and I will continue to do so,) Huldra (talk) 20:27, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
    • Good to hear. I think we are on the same page for the most part. I'm frankly only concerned with the Jerusalem images right now. I had no objection when someone changed the file name on one of my Mar Saba images from Israel to Palestine as it is clearly in the West Bank. I've started removing both Israel and Palestine from my images of Jerusalem.
    • However, respectfully, two things I do take issue with is 1) your changing the file name and breaking links on FP assessments, and 2) creating personal user categories (in my name) for my images, or removing my images from my own user categories. I would appreciate if you would take it upon yourself to fix what you have broken with the FP assessments on English Wikipedia and Commons (one image is featured on 11 different language Wikipedias, most of the links are broken). Those that are not broken still contain the word Israel in the title of the nomination, even though the image file name has been changed. I hope you can leave those residual names as they seem to maintain the links.
    • I don't know what policy is on changing/renaming another user's personal sorting categories, but I hope we can agree that they are off-limits. NPOV actually doesn't apply to Commons, and the Disputed Territories essay is just that, an essay, not policy. Regardless, it just so happens that I agree with both and don't want to make this any more political that it already is in general. Most sincerely -Godot13 (talk) 21:10, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
      • User:Godot13, ok, I agree I should have taken it up with you, instead of changing your Israel to Palestine by myself. If I come across another such file of yours (which I think is) wrongly labeled, I promise you I will take it up with you, instead.
        • I appreciate that. I haven't been very active over the past year or two, but I will go through my files and make the appropriately neutral changes to anything involving Jerusalem and possibly one or two from the West Bank. Give me about a week or so and if you see something I've missed, let me know!
      • What is FP assessments?
        • Featured Pictures
      • When I have changed name on one file here, and that file is used on other projects, then I thought the name was automatically changed on these other project, too. (I have been getting all these messages about me making my first edit on, say, Urdu, Serbian or Korean wikipedias; without me ever looking at any of them..). If this is not correct, and some of my name changes have resulted in broken links, please tell me which.
        • Haha! My aerial photo of the Temple Mount is used on over 50+ different language Wikis. When you change a file name on Commons, it effects all wikis that use the image. It's different if you change a name on a locally hosted image (say, an English Wikipedia file not on Commons) it only gets changed locally.
      • I normally edit on en.wp, where I have been editing in the I/P (Israel/Palestine) area since 2005. Frankly, comming to "commons" have horrified me. In many places it isn't even "Israelipedia", it is "Israelisettleropdia", ie it reflects the views of Israeli settlers, many of whom are far to the right of the Israeli govenment. Wiping off all mentioning of Palestine or Palestinians is part of this, as "Palestine" or "Palestinians" never existed, according to these people. Also, seeing categories like "Israel in the 1880s" is completely absurd, IMO, as Israel did not exist before 1948. There is a lot of "cleaning up" to do. To me it simply looks as if most people on commons dont know very much about modern Middle East history? How else can one explain this, where 3 different editors add pictures taken in what was clearly in Jordan, as being "In Israel"? cheers, Huldra (talk) 21:42, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
        • Agreed... Israel in the 1880's is a bit of a stretch...
        • Ok, got it, FP mean Featured Picture, right? Huldra (talk) 23:11, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
  • I responded to each of your comments above. Thanks for being reasonable about this. -Godot13 (talk) 23:47, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
    • I will find the broken links. It's mainly for the images that are Commons Featured Pictures. I just don't know how to make the links work between the changed name file and the original named voting page... -Godot13 (talk) 23:51, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
      • User:Godot13, if we are to go to all neutral names, then we should try to avoid names like the "Temple Mount" in a file, as that is a very Jewish name. Arabs (both Christian and Muslim) always call it "Haram al–Sharif". The buildings there have one name though, so it is the "Dome of the Rock" and "Al-Aqsa Mosque". Perhaps we should try to name the files after those structures instead? (If they are pictured), cheers, Huldra (talk) 00:33, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
        • Respectfully, I don't think that's a good idea. I went to the Temple Mount page. It appears on 51 different language wikis. I randomly sampled about 20 different languages using the translate function in a Chrome browser. Aside from three (Arabic, Persian, Urdu - all deliberately checked), when the article is translated the name in English is Temple Mount. I would be happy to add in the description section (as I did in a few instances) the Arabic and Hebrew names of the Temple Mount in parenthesis.--Godot13 (talk) 02:54, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
          • Before doing this large scale, is it "Haram al–Sharif" or "al-Ḥaram al-Šarīf"? -Godot13 (talk) 03:28, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
            • Neither of them. It's "al-Haram ash-Sharif" or "al-Ḥaram aš-Šarīf", whatever transcription you prefere. And it's neither neutral name, nor an English one. I'm affraid, a neutral name doesn't exist. "Temple Mount" is in English at least.--Shlomo (talk) 05:27, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
              • User:Godot13: I agree with User:Shlomo here: neither is neutral. (I have never moved files away from "Temple Mount" for that reason: I don't know of a "neutral" name to move it to). I suggest that we try to avoid the name, if we can. See eg Category:Dome of the Ascension, AFAIK, there is no other "Dome of the Ascension", I think we should just call it that, or specify "East Jerusalem" or "Jerusalem". Huldra (talk) 06:33, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
                • Well, there is a Chapel of the Ascension on the Mount of Olives, which is often called a dome as well, and there is also a Mosque of the Ascension. Technically, we can keep them apart by using these names, but for somebody not familiar with Jerusalem's geography it can be pretty confusing. Removing closer description of the location from the file name probably wouldn't be a good idea here.--Shlomo (talk) 07:30, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
              • Or we could use both, as someone has done here, Huldra (talk) 06:53, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
                • Or we can leave the name chosen by the uploader, unless we have a very good reason to a change (such as confusing Temple Mount with Mount of Olives etc.)--Shlomo (talk) 07:30, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
                  • Well, I would not change Temple Mount by itself, but if we are renaming a file anyway, say this (which should be renamed, IMO), then we could take it into concideration, Huldra (talk) 20:22, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Respectfully, I will make the main file name change removing Israel and Palestine and replace them with Jerusalem. Temple Mount is the English term and most widely used (Commons search suggests an overwhelming majority of images use Temple Mount, at a rate greater than 75 to 1). Finally, the term is included to put any specific structures in context (i.e., where in Jerusalem are these places), and thus, to me (the photographer and uploader) it is important. This does not come from any ideological, political, or religious motive, simply a way to provide the broadest possible amount of information within the very limited title of an image.--Godot13 (talk) 20:51, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
    • User:Godot13 Ok, I have no problems with that. (You might consider adding "East" to "Jerusalem" to be more specific, but that is your choice ;P ) As for using "Temple Mount", I of course agree that it is the most common in the West, but editing in this area for years have made me rather sensitive about Arab/Palestinian views (I come from a North Western European Christian Zionist background myself: it has been a looooong "journey" for me), Huldra (talk) 21:02, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
      • I'm in the middle of the renaming process, and suffice it to say it's not enjoyable... There are many instance where you have changed my personal user categories employed for my use in sorting images. I would like your consent for me to undo these changes (using the undo function) as doing it manually would take much longer. I didn't want to hit you with a bunch of reversions out of nowhere. Thanks.--Godot13 (talk) 00:50, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
        • User:Godot13; You of course have my consent to temporarely undo my changes. But I think that on a permanent basis, it is not acceptable to have places in, say, "East Jerusalem" also named as being "in Israel", (as that is a view only held by Israel, and disputed by everyone else), regards, Huldra (talk) 20:59, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
          • @Huldra: It's even more unacceptable to have those places named "in Palestine", since this is a view held by nobody, not even the Palestinian representation/government. Please remove it from the filenames you changed in the last few months.--Shlomo (talk) 05:56, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
            • User:Shlomo Huh??? How can you say that? It is most certainly the Palestinian representation/government official view that East Jerusalem should be their capital, one day. (Yes, I know lots of various suggestiones have been on the table during various negotiations over the years, and have been suggested by various individuals; but those negotiations have lead exactly nowhere), Huldra (talk) 20:38, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
              • "Should be one day" is a declaration of intention, not of sovereignty. As for now, Palestinian official position is that all of Jerusalem […] is subject to permanent status negotiations.--Shlomo (talk) 20:58, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
                • They also refer to it (in the same link you gave) as "the future capital of our state." And eg in December 2017, The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) "recognised East Jerusalem as capital of the State of Palestine."link. Therefore it is incomprehensible to me  that you can write "this is a view held by nobody". Huldra (talk) 21:06, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

FilemovesEdit

Hello. Such filemoves are not in line with the policy, COM:RENAME and controversial. Please refrain from doing such filemoves. --Steinsplitter (talk) 09:32, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Steinsplitter, this ha been discussed abore, and I agree that areas which two different entities claim should not have the name of any of those enities, cheers, Huldra (talk) 23:54, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Old maps of IsraelEdit

Hello Huldra,

Please stop moving catgories of old maps of Israel by years to old maps of Palestine by years. At least these are maps of the history of Israel. Next time I will bring this issue to AN\U. You want to add any category of Palestine, it's fine with me. but don't remove categorize of Israel by year like her. -- Geagea (talk) 01:56, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

User:Patrick Rogel I don't understand this. It is a cropped version of this file, where the uploader said it was their own work, uploaded under CC-BY-SA-4.0, Huldra (talk) 20:38, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
But it isn't as stated by the EXIF files. So, since the original file is put on deletion, the cropped version is as well for the same reason. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 21:11, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
User:Patrick Rogel, sorry, what do you mean by an EXIF file? Huldra (talk) 21:15, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
The "Metadata" box at the bottom of File:EL-Seed-prix-unesco-sharjah-1617.jpg says Amelie Laurin as copyright holder so it's very unlikely that SehamSultan is. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 21:19, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
User:Patrick Rogel, ok, I have no idea. "Seham" is a woman name in Arabic, while "Sultan" can be a surname, Huldra (talk) 21:31, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
Nevertheless it's an Administrator who will decide to keep this photo or not. Please wait until his/her decision. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 21:32, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
