Photo of the weekEdit

Hi :) Great idea!! Thanks for adding them and featuring them this way. I might do something similar with my images or ones I find on Flckr if I can get my act together. Take care, FloNight 18:30, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Truck-nerdy like-to-knowEdit

I asked a question on a picture talk page and Jeff G mentioned Your name; please read below: G®iffen 13:14, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Image talk:Truck in a tree after Hurricane Katrina.jpg

Is this a Volvo? It sure looks like a Volvo cabin from the FL series, but I have no idea how it ended up anywhere near Katrina...? G®iffen 15:04, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
It appears from the image that the truck was owned or operated by Roko's Oysters & Seafood Inc., (985) 657-5344, Empire, LA, and carried a THERMO KING TD-II MAX refrigeration unit. However, it appears from at least five google hits that Roko's is currently at 112 Bowers Ln, Buras, LA 70041, very close (about 0.7 miles driving distance) to the middle of Empire, LA, and may have had "Empire" on its truck for advertising reasons only. You could, of course, call them and ask (they don't seem to have email), but that could be expensive from Denmark, or you could ask Infrogmation to call or stop by. — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 05:20, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
That is a couple hours from me. I could make a telephone call-- what specifically do you want to find out? I'll note that I don't know anything myself about the truck in the photo, but that Volvo vehicles are sold and not unusual in the United States. Almost every building in lower Plaquemines was either destroyed or so damaged that ith had to be rebuilt gutted to the frame, so it isn't so unexpected that some businesses may have moved their address when they were able to reopen at all. If I remember correctly (I've only been down there a couple of times, and not since the disaster) Empire and Buras are part of a long narrow stretch of community along the highway on the lower Mississippi, rather than discrete towns. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 14:26, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
OK, more than one hour is a long way to a dane, more than a half is only when you have other things to do there anyway. The main topic is to find out what truck it is, and if Volvos are sold there, I'll just categorize it as such. I just thought Volvo were only sold in the White brand except for a few hooded models. I've only herard of the Volvo FL series in Europe ans Asia before. G®iffen 17:23, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
I'll just copy these last parts back to the picture talk page. G®iffen 17:25, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Roads and road signsEdit

Category:Road signs in the United States has gotten way too big so we're orphaning it and splitting it up into the road categories. See Category talk:Road signs in the United States. Since road signs are placed for the benefit of the users of the road, and also because road signs are most frequently used in articles about the road itself, nobody so far has had an objection to placing them in the same category. I suppose we could do a category of just signs for Louisiana.—Scott5114 19:21, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. Creating state road sign subcats sounds fine by me. -- Infrogmation 20:01, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Image:Max mosley.jpgEdit

plz check the image after downloading in photoshop it has not been mastered but i know that its background has been changed but the image is fully protected and of person onleyUosgd 01:48, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

I've requested permission for a better image using w:Wikipedia:Example requests for permission#Commons 1.   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 04:28, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

There is some information I have for you. ++Lar: t/c 04:18, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Re: OTRSEdit

The OTRS claim for Image:Kelly_Madison_7.JPG appears OK. (Good grief, you should have warned me it was NSFW. :/ ) However I am going to ask around for some opinions about it because I don't think it's acceptable regardless of the license. --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 11:16, 1 August 2007 (UTC)


Thank you for add more category to Image:Old man-1.jpg! Best wishes --Beyond silence 00:48, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:Bill Gates mugshot.pngEdit

I have listed this image at Commons:Undeletion requests. Please explain your deletion of it there. -Nard 03:26, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Done. Thank you, -- Infrogmation 13:06, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Thank you. :) -Nard 13:12, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Ok. I only used PD-art because it mentions Bridgeman. I think I saw another tag somewhere explaining it though. -Nard 21:43, 6 August 2007 (UTC)


Hello! You've blocked this user and, watching his historial, I can see you're right. This user has asked me for help and I've talk with him and I explained to him their mistakes and how to do to load their photos in commons without problems. I ask you to give him a second opportunity and myself would guard him in their next actions.--Lohen11 10:02, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi. That user has not merely had a problem uploading, but has also repeatedly uploaded copyright violations with false claims of licence and authorship. Messages have been left on users talk page and image pages many times since March without reply or improvement. I think the user has been given many chances far beyond a second. Thank you for your offer to mentor the user. On your reccomendation, if the user asks for an unblock on their user talk page, I'll consider it. But given Gabino's actions, what more can we do? Gabino uploaded some images on which the licence and authorship claims were clearly fraud. Thanks, -- Infrogmation 18:08, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
Hello! He seems to be regretted about his uploads and he left a message at his talk page: User talk:Gabino#Blocked. Besides, he requested our help at ca.wikipedia. I think he should have an other opportunity. Thank-you!--Iradigalesc (talk) 18:58, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Please, consider his unblock, now he knows the rules. He's a good user in ca.wikipedia and I think you'll not have any problem again with this user. If it's possible, answer me in my user talk. Thanks.--Lohen11 22:24, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Unblocked per requests. Thank you for helping the user, and reccomendations to help keep this type of problem from happening are welcome. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 22:30, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

using images as sourcesEdit

Hi, on Image:Ford Motor Company assembly line.jpg you removed the literal link to the source image. I thought that would be handy so people could directly see where the image came from, and also for people viewing the source image to see what other images use that image. Out of curiosity more than anything else, why did you change the link to plain text? Cheers, Jayvdb 05:20, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Ah. Actually, that didn't link directly to the other image page as it was malformed, which is why I removed the wikilink brackets. I see what it was intended to link to, and so have fixed the link. Thanks! Cheers, -- Infrogmation 14:00, 15 August 2007 (UTC)


An image that I uploaded was deleted. However, I followed the example of the way another non free magazine was uploaded. Can you please explain the difference between why this has not been deleted, but mine was? Did I need to clarify something? Thanks. Bherbert 17:32, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use of copyrighted material is allowed on en:Wikipedia, but not here on Commons. If you see other copyright violations on Commons, they are not supposed to be here, please tag them as copyright problems or otherwise point them out. Thanks, -- Infrogmation 17:38, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Category:Categories by yearEdit

hallo Infrogmation, it's no good to sort metacategories (catogories about the structure of commons) into categories of specific entities - see the cat-tree resulting from that [1] an awfull mess, isn't it? - I didn't redo your edit, so you can see it.. try changing back to my version, and reload catgraph - you will see an "well-formed", easy-to-use tree - greetings --W!B: 04:53, 18 August 2007 (UTC)


Please delete my picture Tonian.JPG ... --Tonian 17:48, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much!--Tonian 19:17, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Hey dudeEdit

You requested date/loc info on Image:Hillary Clinton Bill Chelsea on parade.jpg, and I provided it. Yeah, I am still around though after the twins were born, I have not had a lot of time here at commons. Nice to see there has been some activity on the time categories. I haven't been able to review much yet, but did see a template with a navigation set of links for category years. -Mak 23:36, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Great, thanks. Best wishes, -- Infrogmation 23:39, 18 August 2007 (UTC)


Image:Goud.png is correct ? ---- OS2Warp discussão 01:59, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I also noticed that this image is being removed from many articles on enwiki. Your deletion log indicates that there may be a replacement image? I can not find any link to one, can you please clarify? --After Midnight 02:51, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
What has happened. Many many many articles on the Dutch wikipedia are automatically replaced because of this deletion.... Rudolphous 05:11, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Hello there,
I guess this image is removed while there is a svg format available now. Personally I don't find it necessary to delete the png types but at least if you do so, replace it on the wikipedia's that use this image and don't be satisfied with just deleting the old version. This will not stimulate the people to see commons as a trustworthy place to store media. Theun 08:10, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
(By the way the replacement images are Image:Med 1.png,Image:Med 2.png and Image:Med 3.png)
Hello Infrogmation, it would save many people many hours of unnecessary work if you could undo all your deletions you made concerning this goud.png. At the same time you could make the replacement of the image goud.pgn by med 1.pgn, which would lead to the same result, but would give many people bring back a smile on their face on this beautiful sunday morning. With regards, Miho NL 09:49, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Ooops! Image:Goud.png was marked as an obsolete duplicate for speedy deletion, and I neglected to check usage on other projects. Sorry. I believe it's taken care of now. -- Infrogmation 13:01, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Copyright problemEdit

Hello Infrogmation,

you marked one of my uploaded pictures (Image:Booth-Bluff 2.jpg) as deleteable due to some copyright problems. Actually, the only reason why I uploaded this picture is, that there is another picture, which looks like a screenshot from the same show to me (Image:HansenHSP.jpg). There doesn't seem to be any copyright problems with the last picture. Why that? Nintendere 09:40, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi. See Commons:Licensing for details of what is and isn't allowed here. HansenHSP.jpg is a screenshot of a broadcast television show as well? Thank you for the alert; I will so tag it. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 13:10, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, that wasn't my origin target. Nintendere 13:23, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Delete Image:Gold.pngEdit

Why have you deleted the image Gold.png? 10:11, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, :) But I Think the right name is Goud.png. There are two more in the same circunstances: brons.png and zilver.png. But apparently the license information is right...--Xabier Cid 12:06, 19 August 2007 (UTC) :) Thank you, and sorry about no reading the previous comment--Xabier Cid 12:10, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Deleting this image was a bad call. I understand that happens. We all make bad calls now and then. We had to revert about 2000 pages in 23 wikis. I restored the image and will replace the image with its duplicate later today. Our apologies for the inconvenience. Cheers! Siebrand 13:33, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes. Apologies again. Thanks for the fixes. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 13:36, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Delete Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Serbia1918.pngEdit

Because I am new on commons and do not know how things are working can you please explain what is happening with this deletion request. Will this map be deleted, when and if not why not ? Rjecina 00:10, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

I don't know; that particular discusion seems to have dragged on for a good while without resolution. -- Infrogmation 01:02, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Copyright problemEdit

Hello Infrogmation, I would like upload some picture from website Is it possible with Permission Bild-PD-Schöpfungshöhe ? --Wici 16:21, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

I don't know. If copyright information is not listed clearly with the photos (I did not see it with a quick look), ask them at the "Kontakt" link on the web site what the copyright status of images you are interested in are, and if they are willing to allow free licencing of them. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 20:47, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Hola Infrogmation, soy nuevo usuario y debido a ello (como lo habrás notado) he tenido problemas con las licencias de las fotos que he subido. Ej: Norberto_Rodríguez.jpg, Mala_Medicina.jpg y A Pura Sangre.jpg. Me gustaría saber por qué no puedo subir estas imágenes. Tengo autorización verbal tanto por parte del autor de la foto como de los artistas.Gracias, Saludos, -- Paula--AR 13:50 25 August 2007

Hello Infrogmation, I’m a new user and due to that (as you may have noticed) I’ve been having problems with my recently uploaded photo licences. Eg. Norberto_Rodríguez.jpg, Mala_Medicina.jpg and A Pura Sangre.jpg. I would like to know why I can’t upload this photos. I have verbal permission of the author of the photos and of the artists. Thank you and please excuse my english. Cheers, -- Paula--AR 13:50 25 August 2007

Answered on your talk page, User talk:Paula--AR. Thank you. -- Infrogmation 17:41, 25 August 2007 (UTC)


Hola, yo considere que las imagenes del metro eran propias porque las hice yo mismo y no son iguales a las que aparecen la pagina, sin embargo, si no es asi y procede su borrado lo acepto sin problemas. saludos!

My imageEdit

Why did you do that with my image? There's no violation. It's mine. It's my character and I can prove it so easily...--VPP 22:26, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

You mean Image:5.jpg? That face looks very familiar, so I marked it as derivative. You created that character and can easily prove it? Great! Thank you, -- Infrogmation 22:52, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Cool. Give me a few hours. I need to find this drawing and I'll post it right here. --VPP 22:59, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

--> Done! The first guy was in a commercial of this thing called "Globo Pop". I saw him... and I started drawing. Later, I thought "hey, he might be the principal character I was looking for"... and there's the second drawing: Manco Inca (based on that guy) and his brother Huascar Inca (I designed him months before).

Now you may remove the tag. Bye and thanks for your time...--VPP 23:23, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Tag removed. -- Infrogmation 23:24, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Message at User talk:ChrisglieEdit

Just to clarify, my message at Chrisglie's was not intended as an answer (or objection) to your warning, I was just trying to let Chrisglie (Christian) know that I might be able to help him sort things out (in Norwegian) if there were technicalities or such that led his uploads being deleted. I'm sure he himself is aware of which of his uploads has been deleted ;) Happy editing, Finn Rindahl 00:15, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. My latest message was an attempt to let you know the sort of things that User:Chrisglie was uploading that were getting deleted, and to try to explain things one more time to that user if they honestly didn't understand why the copyright problem images were being deleted. Cheeers, -- Infrogmation 00:20, 26 August 2007 (UTC)


Hello, I am the user Euskaltzale bat and I was banned one week ago, but I don't have bad intention. I need one administrator who knows spanish, please. --Euskaltzale bat 17:21, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

See User talk:Euskaltzale bat, Commons:Sobre las licencias. Your block ends soon. No more copyright problems please. I read Spanish OK, but I write it bad, Sorry.

-- 11:11, 30 August 2007 (UTC)Edit

hello, I am new in this and I have suvido images without knowing since there is to raise them and like the card and without knowing the one of copyright fills up. You have cleared me the right to raise images by this, instead of explaining a little to me since one becomes.

It would be thankful that you let raise images again to me, but tell me before as they rise, because not like filling up the card. thanks.

It pardons my English, but I have written it with a translator.-- 11:11, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

What user name? What language do you prefer? -- Infrogmation 12:59, 30 August 2007 (UTC)


Your message:There seems to be a problem with Image:JeronimadelaAsuncionFuenteFilipinas.jpg. You cannot licence images which you are not the creator or copyright holder of. If that is a contemporary portrait of someone who died in 1630 image is likely public domain; if it is a modern impression of her, it may be under copyright but if you are not the artist or copyright holder it is not yours. -- Infrogmation 20:34, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

I have corrected the tag. Kindly check if I did it correctly. Thanks. Image is public domain. - Dragonbite 22:47, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Image question/problemsEdit

Your message: Are you the photographer of Image:LibertitoPelayoFilipinoReporterFounderPublisher1a.jpg? If so, when and where did you take the photograph, and do you have a better resolution version of it you could share? If not, the licencing information is incorrect. Please take care of this quickly. It is YOUR responsibility to determine and accurately list the source and copyright status of images you upload. False information is considered vandalism for which you can be blocked. Check the links on the welcome message for links to useful pages explaining policies, and if you're still not sure about something, ask. -- Infrogmation 20:39, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Please kindly delete this image. This should actually be copyrighted. This was due to a time when I was still an inexperienced uploader at Wikipedia (and no one corrected/notified me about my error). A free image or at least one under fair use may be obtained. Thanks for your message. - Dragonbite 22:47, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Deleted. Thank you for your explanation and prompt attention to this matter. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 22:53, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Deletion requestsEdit

(Originally posted at User talk:Fred J, he doesn't seem to be online though...) Could you take a look at the deletion request pages for yesterday and today, User:Maria lo sposo and User:Michele Bassi has made a lot of very strange edits trying to nominate some images for deletion. I've tried to do some clean up, it does not seem to help. It's pretty obviuos cases, seems they just tried a not very straightforward approach to renaming, but it messes the deletion pages up horribly. Thanks, Finn Rindahl 22:54, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Thank you for the nomination of my photo Image:Narayangarh-Security.JPG. --Seeteufel 06:37, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Logos in FranceEdit

You have designed logos for communes in France? Were you hired by the communes to design these logos? Wondering,
Absolutely not. I do it on my only own! I take pictures of logos or coat of arms and then modify them on my PC. I've been doing this for many months and nobody never told me it was against the Wikimedia law rules. Hence I keep doing so...

Image:James McGrory.jpgEdit

Could you review the deletion of Image:James McGrory.jpg; it and a few others have been transferred here from enwiki, with original license of GFDL by w:user:Winterbottom (w:Image:James McGrory.jpg). See also Image:Patsy Gallacher.jpg, Image:Pat Crerand.jpg, Image:Danny McGrain.jpg and Image:Brian McClair.jpg‎. John Vandenberg 23:38, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

The licencing on all of them seem to be quite dubious-- it looks like en:User:Winterbottom has been putting bogus self-GFDL licences on commerically made photos of UK footballers of previous generations. You might wish to get feedback from someone with familiarity with footballers of half a century ago. -- Infrogmation 23:56, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
Yes, on en:Wikipedia Winterbottom was challenged on some of his images on WP:PUI -- scans or snapshots of old magazines, not own work-- and stopped contributing to Wikipedia at time of first deletions. Sounds like we should list the lot of them for deletion unless they're sourced. -- Infrogmation 00:06, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Category:Music in 2005Edit

Why did you delete this category? I thought we rename them all to "Music in"? Regards, Code·is·poetry 07:52, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

I deleted it because I created it before I realized that a Category "2005 in music" already existed. It was after I deleted it that I realized that the "Music in [year]" format seemed more appropriate. Thanks for your feedback. I have already standardized the pre-2000 categories in the "Music in [year]" format, and if there is no objection soon, I will request a bot fix of the more recent cats which are in the "[Year] in music" format. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 15:46, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
All right then. I've already created the new cats. Regards, Code·is·poetry 16:12, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Image:Kh figure.jpgEdit

Hi! Why did you delete this image??? This is your reason: cv; flickr clearly not original source. what?? have u checked the information? it is from flickr Now, if you mean that it looks different...yeah it does, cuz i've cropped it and changed the color. Eacz12 03:22, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I looked at the flickr source. I also checked about Kingdom Hearts. That flickr account is not the owner of the character design of this copyrighted game. Sorry, you (nor the flickr user) cannot create a free licenced image from someone else's non-free copyrighted one. -- Infrogmation 03:40, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
well, so i can't take pictures of action figures? :S...anyway, thnx for info!!!Eacz12 04:11, 8 October 2007 (UTC)x


I still don't get the procedures here on Commons for dealing with a dubious (but not blatantly problematic) image. The process, insofar as I thought I'd learned it, seems to keep changing, and I can't find any clear guidance. So I'm hoping that as an admin here you can help me sort things out. Image:Javelins.jpg has a claim of "own work", but there is no further explanation and it is an obviously posed photo from the 1960s. I frankly doubt the claim (though, of course, I've uploaded a couple of photos I took that long ago myself). Anyway, I have no idea how to proceed other than... by contacting you! - Jmabel | talk 02:15, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Hm. My first thoughts: Check on the original uploader. Seems to be nl:Wikipedia, so maybe ask an admin also active there about the user, or the user who uploaded it here. If not satisfied by that, list on deletion requests. -- Infrogmation 03:59, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

But it is not a image infringement, It is actually an image that I took the photo when Zinedine Zidane was in Jakarta having a discussion. Can you please re upload it. Frickman 04:22, 12 October 2007 (UTC)


I'm not sure what template you just used to warn this user, but you might like to know that you templated him/her in Portuguese, whereas his language is Spanish. What template is that anyway? Patstuart 17:37, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I switched it to Spanish. Template is endofcopyvios, you can see the other language versions in the interlanguage link at the top of it, or the name of the template can be seen if you edit the user page where it was placed. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 18:07, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Antonio Sicurezza - La sposa formianaEdit

Hello Infrogmation,

The picture you deleted is actually the picture of a painting owned by the Antonio Sicurezza's family, that required me to do this publication on wikipedia. Please, can you tell me if there is a different way to do it? the preceding unsigned comment was added by Gbroggio (talk • contribs)

I have replied on your talk page at User talk:Gbroggio. Thank you, -- Infrogmation 15:24, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Alexz Johnson Photo: Licencing PermissionEdit

I sent a copy of the correspondence to, as requested in the template. I can obtain any additional permission (e.g., with specific wording) as required. In that case, just give me a bit of time, because I have 5 other photos from the same source to upload (for 2 articles, maybe more in that group), and I'd like to get any additional specific permission all at once. I'm also still trying to figure out how to rotate those photos which are sideways.

This is for this photo.

Also, this photo.

I'm new to the Wikimedia Commons, so I'm on a learning curve here.

If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}} to release it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

I don't recall what I scanned that from for en:Wikipedia 4 years ago nor if I still have the original. So I guess go ahead and delete. -- Infrogmation 23:20, 26 October 2007 (UTC)


I'm concerned that this image was deleted without any discussion. I remember adding it to a couple of categories and it seemed to be properly licensed. It appeared to be a piece of artwork for a small independent movie uploaded and licensed by the filmmaker. --Simonxag 21:08, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

That seemed to me to clearly be a commercial dvd cover, not a self-created poster as claimed. However if you think it should be undeleted or go through some other procedure, I am open to suggestions or discussion. Thanks, -- Infrogmation 21:47, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes, the image is clearly being used for the DVD cover which doesn't mean that it's not a self produced poster. The image will be owned by Steve Balderson or his company and an upload by the man himself or an employee ought to be quite legit. Another movie poster Image:XPepSquad-poster.jpg purports to be uploaded by his PA, but has a missing-permission tag. For once I am not struggling to assume good faith: the motivations, (independent artists are pro-freedom and desperate for any publicity), seem to add up. We need to hang on to these images if they are legal, Category:Movie posters is hardly overloaded. --Simonxag 22:56, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Okay. I have seen so many dvd covers uploaded with (generally obviously false) "self made" claims that perhaps I was too swift to act with that one. I will undelete and ask for clarification. (If none is forthcoming, I may list it for deletion discussion in the future.) Cheers, -- Infrogmation 23:08, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

I've been in touch with the uploader (Ella) on the Wikipedia en:User talk:Pipistrello2004 and she has replied on her talk page that Steve Balderson has sent an email. She has added "Will this work?" and I haven't a clue. Could you help us out? --Simonxag 23:01, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. Thank you for your work. -- Infrogmation 23:11, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

I think it's sorted now. Thank you for your help. --Simonxag 20:16, 10 November 2007 (UTC)


give me a hand, man. i'm uploading images to improve portuguese articles i'm creating, but the images are always deleted. see that i just upload: has something wrong? the preceding unsigned comment was added by Wild rover (talk • contribs)

Yes, as the message left at User talk:Wild rover explained, it was not a free licenced image. Commons only accepts free licenced images. This has been explained on your talk page more than once, in both English and Portugese. I think you saw the messages, since you blanked the page more than once. If you need to see the messages again, you can look at "page history" on your talk page. See Commons:Licensing (in English) or Commons:Licenciamento (Portugese). What else can I give you a hand with? -- Infrogmation 23:04, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

so, how can i put the "wbc logo" on the portuguese article? why the english article about the "world baseball classic" have? --Wild rover 05:58, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

That would be because English Wikipedia allows fair use pictures, whereas Portuguese does not. It was an editorial decision by the people at the Portuguese encyclopedia. It looks like you're simply out of luck. Patstuart 15:44, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

An image you deleted was re-uploaded.Edit

Just letting you know that Image:SsBB_mx.jpg was re-uploaded after you deleted it. I nominated it for speedy deletion. Ipankonin 00:32, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. -- Infrogmation 01:02, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

{{Agência Brasil}}Edit

Hi, The Source in Agência Brasil's workings must be a URL. You can read "To the uploader: You must provide a link (URL) to the original file and the authorship information if available.".--OsamaK 04:17, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for the explanation. -- Infrogmation 20:53, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Ooopsy (Image:Tetitla Teotihuacan Great Goddess mural (Abracapocus).jpg)Edit


Oooops, on that Great Goddess Teotihuacan photo. I neglected to include the Flickr link for that one. I have in the past and will hopefully remember in the future. Flickr is an honest-to-goodness goldmine, although perhaps it's more like panning for gold: you spend a long time sloshing for a single nugget.

Anyway, glad you like them. To me, an article's not complete without images. Keep up the good work, Madman2001 02:36, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi. Nothing new. It seems the contact section of the web is abandoned. The author doesnt answer my messages. ---- Fernando Estel ☆ · 星 (Talk: here- es- en) 10:25, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for your efforts and for the reply. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 13:03, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Bonsecours Market Montreal Quebec Old Postcard.jpgEdit

Hi. Image:Bonsecours Market Montreal Quebec Old Postcard.jpg looks like a useful image very likely to be in the public domain. However I note that you listed the author as "unknown" and that the "author died more than 70 years ago". That doesn't seem to make much sense-- you don't know who it was, but you know when they died? Puzzled, -- Infrogmation 03:49, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry, I don't have much information and the way it is written it is in fact strange, but I did not upload this image first and I am not the one who wrote that. The original uploader and the one who wrote this information is User:RedAndr. I tried some research on google and found an ebay link [2] showing the same image in black and white suggesting that S. J. Hayward published it, but I don't know if it's related to the photographer Sydney Jack Hayward. Beyond that, I can't really find anything more, I hope someone could find more information about the author, but apart from that I also think this is very likely to be in the public domain. --DarkEvil 05:11, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I see you uploaded a cleaned up version, my mistake; I will ask the original uploader. Sorry to bother you with irrelevent question. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 05:20, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
