Commons:Deletion requests/Indian army photosEdit

Hi Jim. You deleted a number of files per Commons:Deletion requests/Indian army photos because the licesing of the source website was not compatible with COM:L. A number of these have, however, just been restored under a {{GODL-India}} license. I'm OK with that if that license is correct, but that GODL license does seem to be in conflict with the information given on the actual source website. If the GODL is OK, then perhaps the remaining Indian military photos which were deleted per the aforementioned DR and other DR for the same reason. It seems that these files were restored per COM:UDR#Files deleted by Jameslwoodward. -- Marchjuly (talk) 11:59, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

pretty british bookEdit

I uploaded File:The story of hedgerow and pond.djvu before I read the warning in the category because it was such a pretty book. Maybe it will still be here for you to delete when you get back.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Railfreight sub sectors.svgEdit

Hi Jim. Could you take a look at en:WP:MCQ#Trainload Freight logos and clarify whether the files being discussed there are the same as the ones you deleted per this DR? Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:30, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Scupcinarii - ilustratii de S.Mutzner.jpgEdit

Hi, can you please undelete this image temporarily? It is needed for a deletion discussion at rowiki. Gikü (talk) 00:26, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Your deletion of my commons imageEdit

Hi, Jim. I am afraid I simply cannot understand the complexities of why you apparently deleted the image I posted to Commons, or how to fix the problem. My fluency on Wikipedia is limited. The history of this issue can be found here:

The only copyright that may exist regarding the text on this marker would be common-law copyright, in which case I am the owner. Please help me figure out how to follow the proper process to un-delete the image.

Thank you kindly.

@Bmankin1: This was restored nearly 5 years ago, so I don't understand what you want. Regards, Yann (talk) 03:14, 24 September 2018 (UTC) (talk page stalker)

Sorry. For some reason I viewed a page where it was absent. Apologies and thanks for your quick response. --Bmankin1 (talk) 14:43, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Question regarding the "vector version available" when it won't match.Edit

So, I've been doing some work over on the English Wikipedia Hazchem page. So the article's header image is an old JPEG diagram of a sign from 2006. It was tagged at some point for upgrade to vector for somewhat obvious reasons.
However, there's a dilemma, the original image is only sort of what a Hazchem placard should look like. The format is correct of the boxes is correct, but the color, text proportions/size, the radioactive placard are wrong. I made an more accurate version that I intend to replace the current image with, but I don't know that I can call my new one a 'new vector version' of the old file.

I've taken this to the help desk, since it seems you are still intermittently active. I hope your trip went well.--The Navigators (talk) 03:40, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Why did you delete my photo?Edit

I took the photo myself when Ted came by our TV station to be interviewed. It was not a screen shot, but a photo I personally took. It was also deleted from Commons. I was on the road for 18 months with limited internet access during the time it was deleted. I just noticed it today. Phil Konstantin

Deletion of File:Ungureanu et Rice.jpgEdit

Hello, James.

Sometime in 2016, you closed the discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Ungureanu et Rice.jpg saying that we need proof that this file is {{PD-USGov}}. Well, the image appears on a site, saying "State Department photo". Isn't it enough to conclude that it is a work of a State Department employee? Razvan Socol (talk) 06:55, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
