Regarding file deletionEdit

Ices2Csharp, Thanks for your decision to close the deletion debate and retain the aforementioned files on Wikimedia Commons. What is the process for finalizing things? Who or what process will remove the deletion information, as well as prevent the files from actually being deleted? Elizabeth Blandra (talk) 00:04, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

I forgot to remove the deletion templates. Now everything should be finalized. Thanks for the notification. Ices2Csharp (talk) 11:09, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. Elizabeth Blandra (talk) 13:32, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Out of scope?Edit

May I ask why a file linked on a WMF project that specifically deals with how to upload pictures to Commons was nominated for deletion? How is it out of scope? The only reason it hasn't been transcluded into a page is because I worked on it and then things came up and I didn't get a chance to come back to it. The file directly relates to the project and the local project it is linked on does not allow local uploading. --LauraHale (talk) 19:31, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

There is no open DR for that file, at least not one in which I am involved. Ices2Csharp (talk) 22:01, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Water Report Fort IrwinEdit

The file is linked to a virtual demonstration application for heterogeneous data linking.

Please leave intact..

I see you also found the nomination itself. That's a better place to respond, because a closing administrator won't read my user talk page when taking a decision. Ices2Csharp (talk) 14:20, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Deletion requests by one uploader / files in one cat with similar reasonsEdit

Hi, do you know about Help:VisualFileChange? It helps when nominating files of users like User:Gringos123 for deletion. It also prevents cluttering the DR-log and the uploader's talk page. But use it wisely. Cheers -- RE rillke questions? 11:14, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. I will take a look at it and see if I can use it in some cases. Ices2Csharp (talk) 11:20, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
I already used this a few times and I see this was a very usefull advise. Ices2Csharp (talk) 11:27, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
And I have another tip: If you mark files with no permission/ no source, you could use Quick Delete (Maintenance tools) adding some links to the toolbox in the sidebar of file-description pages that add the appropriate template and notify the uploader with instructions what to do (what kind of permission is required, ...) or not to do. -- RE rillke questions? 12:23, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, I will take a look at it. Ices2Csharp (talk) 12:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

another problem nominationEdit

File:Videonewsscripttemplate.pdf is yet another ridiculous nomination where you are not doing any research. If you had looked at the content, or the users talk page, you would have seen this. Please will you stop nominating content for deletion. No ifs or buts. No more. You're not good at it. John Vandenberg (chat) 08:45, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm open for constructive comments. The fact that almost every file I nominate for deletion gets deleted, like 99+ %, clearly shows you are not true in your qualification of my work. Ices2Csharp (talk) 11:10, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Fiestas papix.jpgEdit

Hello I am the author of that photo, where you must vote for the deletion? Hola soy el autor de esa foto, donde hay que votar para que la borren?

saludos --Papix (talk) 19:33, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Hola Papix, si pones {{Speedy|Author request}} en la Pagina del archivo, van a borrarlo dentro de unas horas. Normalmente si el cargador lo pide, lo hacen pronto. Saludos, Carlo - Ices2Csharp (talk) 20:47, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

File:Zhwandoon TV logo.jpgEdit

Any reason why you think this image is copyright free due to age? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 04:08, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

I didn't add any PD-old tag or something comparable. Ices2Csharp (talk) 11:29, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

File:Orkan na Jamajce.jpgEdit

Hello. My mistake, I couldn't delete that file myself. It definitevely shouldn't be on Wikimedia Commons. MBialy (talk) 20:04, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok, no problem. File will probably be deleted within about 2 weeks. Ices2Csharp (talk) 20:19, 9 April 2012 (UTC)


Dear Ices2Csharp, I see you're nominating a lot of files for deletion. Good job!

However, files that are missing permission generally shouldn't be nominated for deletion. Please use Template:No permission since for such files. That template, combined with {{Image permission}} on the uploader's talk page, explains what the problem is and how it could be solved. In other words, it is way more informative and helpful for the uploader.

Something else, album covers and film posters (such as this Rick Wakeman's album cover) can be deleted as copyright violations. It would be great if you could tag those with {{Copyvio}} instead of nominating them for deletion via COM:DR.

Kind regards, Mathonius (talk) 02:10, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Mathonius, thanks for the feedback. I will see what I can do. In some cases a normal DR may still be better. I already have the 'Report copyright violation / No source / No permission / No license' links installed in my toolbox, I will try to use them more often. Ices2Csharp (talk) 07:07, 13 April 2012 (UTC)


OK ,then give me the confrimed rights (if not giving Filmover rights) then give me confirmed rights PLzzzzz......

Thanx CCCI2talkContributions

I don't think you will get any additional rights without experience. Ices2Csharp (talk) 15:42, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
I've been wikipedia & Wikimedia from December 2011 so i am experienced about it..Thanx CCCI2talkContributions
I don't see any edits from your account. Ices2Csharp (talk) 15:46, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
You can see my account which i have left it Ali33471 and in wikipedia there are many accounts e.g Khan810 विकिजी (from hindi wiki) (from hindi wiki)....and many more..Plzzzzzzzzzzzzz make me confirmed user
Thanx CCCI2talk 15:51, 13 April 2012

Question, I need an adviceEdit

Hello Ices2Csharp ;
I have a question for you. On this interresting document of the OSPAR Commission] are mentioned 2 phrases (below). I saw no prohibition of commercial use, but the use of "may" puzzles me a bit. Do you think I can make a map from this document on Commons ?

© Commission OSPAR, 2009. La reproduction de tout ou partie de ce rapport dans une publication peut être autorisée par l’Editeur, sous réserve que l’origine de l’extrait soit clairement mentionnée.
thank you for your advice --F. Lamiot (talk) 21:10, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

I sent the same question to Ospar Commision by mail, but no answer for the moment.--F. Lamiot (talk) 21:21, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

It seems to mean that they have to authorize every single reuse. Doesn't look like a free license. Ices2Csharp (talk) 23:12, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Please refrain from deceptive nominationsEdit

Like in Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Panoroma.JPG, you claimed that the image was lacking description. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 11:43, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

It DID lack sufficient description, but closing admin fixed it. Ices2Csharp (talk) 13:17, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
You did not write "Unclear description", or "I cannot find out what the description means", you wrote that it lacked description. So your DR was quite misleading. And it was not so difficult to find out what the abbreviation meant. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 14:05, 2 May 2012 (UTC)


Why? This is illegal and a big crime for Turkey. -- Supermæn (talk) 10:22, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Could you cite a Turkisch law on that and explain me why Commons would be under Turkisch jurisdiction? Ices2Csharp (talk) 10:25, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
Many places on this map is in Turkey. But, User:Ferhates divides Turkey and shown these areas as Kurdistan. This is illegal and a crime for Turkey and these penalty is 3 years jail to death penalty. (Reference: here) -- Supermæn (talk) 10:38, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
I just removed your DR from a page it didn't belong to and left you a notification, so that you could place your DR at the right place, which seems to have been done by now. Ices2Csharp (talk) 18:41, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Metaphorically speakingEdit

The metaphors are lovely. Me - I'm going to get steel covers for the windows just in case... --Herby talk thyme 07:52, 9 June 2012 (UTC)


Do you appreciate that while nominating the lot for deletion might have saved the nominator time, everyone reviewing the DRs would have to go through all those images, including half which were wrongly nominated. So we are comparing time saved in nominating vs the time wasted my many people reviewing multiple images that a visual inspection would have excluded. Please don't do DRs this way. --Tony Wills (talk) 11:24, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

IMHO this way of nominating was the far most efficient way for this specific case. Feel free to have a different judgement. Please take into account this is an exceptional case. In the thousands of nominations I started till now, you will not find another DR like this. Ices2Csharp (talk) 11:33, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Deletion requestsEdit


Do not close DRs. The non admin closure is only for absolutely non controversial issues. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 12:29, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

I was invited to at the administrators noticeboard? Ices2Csharp (talk) 13:21, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
Rillke thought you are an admin. But you are not. So, do not close any DR until you have become an admin. Feel free to run a request. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 16:34, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I see. Thanks. Ices2Csharp (talk) 16:38, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

"Of course. Uncontroversial and nonsense requests can be closed as kept. Constructive comments can be made, {{DR proposed close}} can be used."

is exactly what I said about closing deletion requests. Gathering a bit experience before becoming an admin can not harm IMHO. Perhaps, after getting the first complaints the applicant (for adminship) reconsiders the desire of becoming an admin - or not :-) If you were an admin, I would have recommended to activate DelReqHandler in your Preferences and not adding text to your common.js. -- RE rillke questions? 20:43, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
I would like to be helpful, but I feel uncomfortable doing things other admins apparently disagree with. This is a confusing situation. Ices2Csharp (talk) 21:32, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
Then there is only one way COM:RFA (or Commons:License review/requests, if you like to get some input before). -- RE rillke questions? 10:08, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I will think about it. Ices2Csharp (talk) 10:11, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

File:Alejandro Lerroux.JPGEdit

Hi Ices2Csharp. I don't see how you can close an open deletion request as "keep" when the file in question has no US copyright tag. This means it is incorrectly licensed. Your thoughts appreciated. Grandiose (talk) 12:32, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Consensus and longstanding practice at the moment is not to take action on this specific {{Not-PD-US-URAA}} issue. Ices2Csharp (talk) 13:25, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
I don't understand. The file was not tagged as Not-PD-US-URAA; it has not US licensing at all. Grandiose (talk) 21:37, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
You could tag it with {{Not-PD-US-URAA}} if you feel you must do something. Ices2Csharp (talk) 21:58, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

I have reopened it because Ices2Csharp is not authorizeed to close such DRs, he is no admin (at least not yet). Ices2Csharp can post his opinion on the DR if he wants to. --High Contrast (talk) 11:11, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Out of ScopeEdit

Hello I am trying to understand what does it mean "Out of Scope" for the PROCAL Productividad y Calidad Total publication,only Spanish that is related to productivity and quality in manufacturing company (perhaps applicable to other activities as well), based on ISO9000, Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing principles. I would appreciate if you contact me, you can use email <blanked>

Thanks, Mauro Cardenas July 15, 2012

Hi, (late response due to vacation), could you give me a link to the involved file? Ices2Csharp (talk) 19:30, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi! File:KAL801Ex 3I.pdf is not out of scope. Wikisource wants the original PDFs/documents of public domain works to be uploaded to the commons. WhisperToMe (talk) 14:54, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

  • The Wikisource page Wikisource:Korean Air Flight 801 investigation/Exhibits is a recreation of an NTSB website about Korean Air Flight 801. Wikisource links to this document at "3I" - Again, Wikisource requires source document PDFs to be located on Commons, so Commons is required to accept these files as being within its scope. WhisperToMe (talk) 15:07, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Editor @ ar.wikiEdit

Hello. I would like to inform you that I have granted you editor flag at the Arabic Wikipedia, all your edits there will be automatically marked as patrolled. Best regards.--Avocato (talk) 07:09, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Your VFC installation method is deprecatedEdit

Hello Ices2Csharp, 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)
