User Simpleshow foundationEdit

You are apparently on vacation/holiday, but this is a matter you've been involved in before, and there is no big rush.

Here it would appear that user "Simpleshow foundation" is indef blocked. Here, that user has uploaded (yet another) video -- on 10 March 2016. (Most but not all of that user's videos are Here.)

The article 'Sleep hygiene' on English Wikipedia is one of the articles I watch, and the video has been added there today by user "Norma jean" who states that she found it on Commons. I may argue for deleting it from the article, as at least one "fact", isn't. (Isn't a fact.)

I am very seldom on Commons, so if you reply here please give me a heads up on English wikipedia (same username). Thanks, --Hordaland (talk) 20:08, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

I suggest you post a request at Commons:Requests_for_checkuser -- my colleagues will handle it for you. I would do the CU myself, but we're offshore right now and although our WiFi repeater is working, it's very slow. 10:21, 5 July 2016 (UTC) (also posted on WP:EN)
I'd suggest it's not a checkuser issue... it appears they were only ever blocked for having an inappropriate username, so creating a new username would have been perfectly acceptable, I think. There may be COI/paid editing issues on enwiki, but I think that's a different question. Have a great trip, Jim! Storkk (talk) 11:01, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Underhill (2010)Edit

Hi Jim,

Underhill did respond! And he's okay with the use of the map at Wikipedia!!! Here is his mail:

I am OK with your using the map(s) from
Underhill PA, Myres NM, Rootsi S, Metspalu M, Zhivotovsky LA, King RJ, Lin AA, Chow C-ET, Semino O, Battaglia V, Kutuev I, Järve M, Chaubey G, Ayub Q, Mohyuddin A, Mehdi SQ, Sengupta S, Rogaev EI, Khusnutdinova EK, Pshenichnov A, Balanovsky O, Balanovska E, Jeran N, Augustin DH, Baldovic M, Herrera RJ, Thangaraj K, Singh V, Singh L, Majumder P, Rudan P, Primorac D, Villems R, Kivisild T. 2010. Separating the post-Glacial coancestry of European and Asian Y chromosomes within haplogroup R1a. Eur J Hum Genet 18:479-484
Assuming you agree to the following conditions
1) That you cite the publication adequately including full name of journal, etc
2) That you declare (perhaps in your figure legend for the map(s) that you use), that any interpretations and/or inferences you make based on the frequency distributions shown on these maps are yours alone and not necessarily those of the authors of Underhill et al 2010
This way, readers will clearly understand that my co-authors & I take a position of neutrality, rather than thinking that because I grant permission to reproduce images, I am necessarily endorsing any interpretation(s) you make regarding themodern frequency distributions shown in the publication.
Best wishes,

So, what do I do next? Does it mean we can use the original maps from Underhill et al. (2010)? Which license should be used; I guess a limited license which only permits the usage within Wikipedia? And does this copy of his email suffice? I mean, who garantees that I didn't write it myself? I figure the full text of the email (except my name) should be included; should that be added to the Licensing-section? I hope you can help me here. Best regards, Joshua Jonathan (talk) 07:26, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Joshua Jonathan: That permission is not enough. They should agree to release their map under a free license, like CC-BY-SA-4.0. And they should send an email to the OTRS. Thanks, Poké95 07:45, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Pokéfan95! I'll have to consider if I've got enough guts to ask this to him, but thanks anyway. Joshua Jonathan (talk) 10:51, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
Pokéfan95 is correct -- that won't do it. However, if Underhill reads the CC-BY license (, I think he will probably find that it covers his issues -- attribution is required and that the creators do not endorse the particular use. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:36, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
I've had further email-contact with him, and I'll leave it as it is; that is, no maps from him. It was worthwhile anyway, having contact with him; he's very carefull indeed. Best regards, Joshua Jonathan (talk) 04:40, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Please (Fauvirt)Edit

Commons page Gerhard DrekonjaEdit

Hi Jim, could you please undelete Gerhard Drekonja? I'm planning to upload more pictures in the next few days. Thank you! Hans Urian (talk) 11:26, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

✓ Done -- It's helpful if you put a note on the page -- "more coming soon" -- or the like. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:26, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

You are right. Thanks! Hans Urian (talk) 07:48, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Jim, you should have said to put a note on the talk page instead, I undid their addition of the note, which resulted to User talk:Pokéfan95#Your edit in Gerhard Drekonja... Face-smile.svg Poké95 08:24, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Poké95 -- No, in the case of a blank or single image gallery, putting a note on the talk page won't help -- the gallery page will simply be deleted and the talk page with it. See {{Underconstruction}} for a quick way to do it and note that it calls for putting the template on the gallery page itself, not the talk page.
