File:Askar Zhumadildayev.jpgEdit

Hi! I was wondering why did you decide that this file is the object of copyright infringement? --Nurbek Matzhani (talk) 12:38, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

I restored the file. But it lacks the permission (COM:OTRS) of the photographer Dementyev Roman. The specified link does not work anymore. Hystrix (talk) 17:23, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

My Brother's Blues.jpgEdit

You deleted this image. I work for the artist who did this CD and am doing the Wiki page for him at his request ... I also am the artist and I composed the CD cover (my credit is actually on the CD). Therefore, it is my work (as I said it was when I uploaded it) and I should be able to freely use it. I would appreciate an answer and steps on how I can upload my own work to use on Wiki pages in the future without having to do this each time. Thank you so much. --Debraannclark (talk) 02:54, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Konica Minolta multifunction printersEdit

File:Logo KM 3D.jpg wasn't deleted. Also not kept. I don't know if it would be PD-textlogo. If you think it should be, feel free to change the license. - Alexis Jazz 06:58, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

I now see in the log you restored it saying "my mistake". I thought it was that bug again that caused deleted files randomly not to be deleted, but I was mistaken. However, the file is not properly "kept" now either and still has no valid license. - Alexis Jazz 10:32, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
I wanted to keep it as a PD-textlogo. But I read here:
"The intellectual property rights and trademarks for all images, texts and logos (hereafter referred to as "material") that are stored in the database available at are held – unless otherwise stated – by Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe GmbH, Europaallee 17, 30855 Langenhagen (hereafter referred to as "Konica Minolta").

Deleted. Thank you very much for your hint. Hystrix (talk) 17:10, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Reply: Notification about possible deletionEdit

I uploaded pictures which I took, but almost all files have been listed at 'Commons:Deletion requests.' They have been nominated for deletion. The reason for the nomination is 'Low resolution, no EXIF. Only one file within.' I think it is because there is no metadata. Is the reason 'NO metadata'? But is there any rule that the metadata should be included? I want to hear about more specific reason for deletion requests.

And, I took the picture with my smartphone and sent those pictures to my computer through SNS (not USB) and save them. During the process, can the metadata of picture be deleted? How can I resolve this problem? Should I delete the files and upload again the pictures with metadata?--Yeon So Jeong (talk) 04:57, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello Yeon So Jeong,

Gelöschte DateienEdit

keine Beschwerde, nein, nur eine Nachfrage. Du hattest einige Dateien von User:Giebel FilTec GmbH, z.B. File:GIEBEL FilTec GmbH Gebäude.jpg gelöscht, die ich per speedydelete zur Löschung vorgeschlagen hatte. Gibt es eigentlich eine Info-Vorlage für "broken/corrupted/faulty image data" oder ähnliches? Die vorgeschlagenen templates sind in diesem Fall alle etwas arg unpassend. Grüße, --Pentachlorphenol (talk) 08:26, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Pentachlorphenol,
wenn ich Deine Anfrage richtig interpretiere, in den Benutzereinstellungen Visual File Change aktivieren. VG --Hystrix (talk) 19:45, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
Hallo Hystix, nein, leider nicht richtig interpretiert. Ich such(t)e nach einer vorgefertigten Benachrichtigung für den Uploader. Der Benutzer hat eine ganze Reihe kaputter Bilder hochgeladen. Die von der Vorlage "speedydelete" angebotenen Benachrichtigungsbausteine sind ja schön und gut, aber für diesen Fall nicht zutreffend. --Pentachlorphenol (talk) 19:32, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
Da kann ich Dir leider nicht helfen. Evtl. kannst Du im Forum nachfragen. Hystrix (talk) 17:17, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

New sectionEdit

Why you deleting all of my photos?? It's not fair. If I'm vandalizing you, then I must admit I regret for what I've done to you.

Thank you for your apology. Please look at some pages like COM:PS, COM:L and ohters. And „Why you deleting all of my photos??“ Please see this discussion. I am available for further questions. Best regards, Hystrix (talk) 14:24, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
Would you please explain to me how I fixing "EXIF" for all of my photos? Thank you.

Please read COM:L. Did you design the logo? Are you the owner of the mascot rights? Hystrix (talk) 01:57, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

Football kit templatesEdit

Lol excuse me, I just got back home from work and am not exactly well tuned :-) You mean that you've turned Footballl kit templates into a disambiguation page for the several football codes kits? -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 20:04, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

«You mean that you've turned Footballl kit templates into a disambiguation page for the several football codes kits?» Yes «I just got back home from work and am not exactly well tuned» There's no hurry. Hystrix (talk) 20:39, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Ok thanks, well done! -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 18:55, 8 September 2018 (UTC)


I am the creator of this text, which is based on PD material. Even though it is my own work, which I uploaded and agreed to release with CC-BY-SA, a "no permission" label was added to the page recently (and in my opinion mistakenly). In order to deal with this (unnecessary!) label, I sent a permission form to OTRS immediately on the morning of September 3 (the very day the no-permission label was added), but have not received a reply. And now the file itself, which is in current use on Wikimedia projects and has been for years, has been unilaterally deleted with a note that says "No permission since 3 September 2018" (!).

I therefore ask that the file be restored. Dovi (talk) 20:37, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Can you send me the OTRS number? Hystrix (talk) 20:48, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Like I wrote, I have not received a reply to the permission letter I sent to OTRS on 3 September. Dovi (talk) 20:55, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
You wrote a letter to OTRS and you don`t know the number. OK. On 3 September we have more than thousand Mails. Hystrix (talk) 21:21, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Why in the world would a letter to OTRS have a number? The number is in the reply from OTRS, which I haven't received. I'm sorry there is such a backlog at OTRS, but this file shouldn't have had a "missing permission" tag added in the first place, nor should it have been deleted. When someone does his best to follow the rules, and does so promptly, but there is a backlog and it takes time for OTRS to respond with a number, then simply leave the file in place in the meantime. Dovi (talk) 05:13, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Wait! I apologize! I just noticed that there is a number in the automatic reply email. I thought it was only in the final (human) approval. I submitted two OTRS requests on 3 September, and got two automatic replies. The numbers are: Ticket#2018090310001621 and Ticket#2018090310001658. Once again my apologies, I didn't understand that the number you were asking for was there. Dovi (talk) 05:17, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
@Dovi: The file is restored via OTRS number. Please check everything again and apologize for the trouble. Best regards, Hystrix (talk) 06:08, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you and sorry for the misunderstanding :-) Dovi (talk) 06:48, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Vernet-Lecomte 1.jpgEdit

files removed from commonsEdit

Hello Hystrix,

i'm the author of the article "Covention furry" on the french Wiki, and i would like to know why you have removed the pics i had load on wikicomons to illustrate this article ? Those pics have been taken by a friend of mine, and i have the autorisation of use from him. There are no people's faces on those pics, and they have been shot in a public place.

Thanks for you answer --RawWriter (talk) 10:39, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello @RawWriter:,
the photos were marked with {{No permission since|month=September|day=5|year=2018}}. Such photos will be deleted after a short period of one week, for example, to avert possible damage to re-user. Your friend, the photographer or the rights holder, must send a permit to the OTRS team. Your sincerely, Hystrix (talk) 11:50, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Ganz herzlichen Dank!!!Edit

Boah, du bist ja total schnell, ganz herzlichen Dank, ich dreh bald durch vor all dem Stress mit dem Hochladen, Kategorien finden, der Künstlerin mailen, etc. - ich muss endlich mal frühstücken - jetzt :-). Viele liebe Grüße und DANKE! --Gyanda (talk) 14:00, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

... und Du dankst mir schneller, als ich Dir, @Gyanda:, im Forum antworten konnte ;-) Falls Du bei einer weiteren Datei, die Du hochgeladen hast, innerhalb von sieben Tagen Fehler entdeckst, und diese Datei schnell gelöscht werden soll, füge im Quelltext {{speedydelete|<Begründung>}} oder die Abkürzung {{SD|G7}} ein. Die Datei wird dann meistens noch schneller gelöscht. LG, Hystrix (talk) 14:23, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Stefan Ostrowski.jpgEdit

Could you undelete File:Stefan Ostrowski.jpg ? The proper agreement has been just sent to OTRS. (Ticket#2018091510002698) Polimerek (talk) 20:09, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

The file is restored. Please check everything again. Best regards, Hystrix (talk) 05:41, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm new to wikimedia and I'm trying to create the page of an artist I work for. Her name is Letizia Gambi and she is an amazing Italian jazz singer who released 2 albums, nominated for Grammy awards and who worked with incredible musicians like Chick Corea,Ron Carter, Gato Barbieri and Lenny White and who had Sting support too. I've uploaded pictures that I took personally or that are published already on Letizia's website or on her cd booklets. We have the permissions but all the pictures have been deleted by someone like you did. Even a selfie that Letizia Gambi took herself was deleted. Could you kindly help me and explain me what should I do to not to have those media deleted ? (I'm in troubles even just trying to create her wikipedia page, but that part of my job!) Any help would be more than appreciate

Thank you


Hi Marta, especially if the photos have been published before, on websites or booklets, the permission of the photographer or rights holder is required. Further information can be found here OTRS/it. Best regards, Hystrix (talk) 14:50, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

How can I recover the picturesEdit


I'm not clear as to why the pictures on the account I edited for Chance Thomas were deleted. The profile picture he owns and authorized me to use, the picture of the group I took it myself and the picture with the books was taken by Chance personally. How do I go about restoring these pictures?Kdvr9 (talk) 06:06, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi, please see COM:OTRS. The photographer or rights holders must send a permission to the OTRS team. Regards, Hystrix (talk) 15:23, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
