one plus another one for your opinionEdit

Hiya Jim: Trying to clear through more DNs, found Commons:Deletion requests/File:Dictionary through lens.JPG that one which I'd appreciate your opinion. Thanks! Ellin Beltz (talk) 14:59, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for that, would you take a look at [1] this one please? I'd appreciate a second opinion. Face-smile.svg Ellin Beltz (talk) 05:50, 26 April 2015 (UTC)


Commons:Deletion requests/File:Kill Me y su cuchillo..JPGEdit

And File:Kill Me..JPG? --Ezarateesteban 16:38, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

  • ✓ Done Thank you. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:39, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

please undelete Rodolfo Antonio Mendez VargasEdit

Dear Jim, let me explain to you why I think you are confused. The first time I open an account in wikipedia was to post this article, so when I create the account I was thinking the name of my account should be the name of the person I was writing, reason by which I put the name of my father Rodolfo Antonio Mendez Vargas ( I am Pedro Mendez Carvajal, his son). The person who appears in the portrait, and other pictures, the artist is my father, it is not me!. The pictures you separated in the group that I am allowed to post, are taken by me personally. The pictures where the artist is holding his own art was taken by my grandfather (both my grandfather and my father, passed away). The pictures were passed to me directly from my father, who received from my grandfather. I am Rodolfo Mendez's son, and I am grandson of Jose Guillermo Mendez (who took the pictures where my father is). My father Rodolfo Antonio Mendez Vargas passed away in 2004, if you check the article I wrote about him, you will see that he has a death date, otherwise, I would be a ghost writing here ;-)..could you please help me with this? I am trying to illustrate this article to have good information for the public. Please apologies for the mistakes but I am new here, let me know what to do. Thank you very much.--Rodolfo Antonio Méndez Vargas (talk) 23:08, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Good, thank you. For the images of the artwork, you need to send a license to OTRS explaining that you are the heir. For the photographs -- in all cases where your grandfather is the photographer -- you also need to send a license to OTRS explaining that you are the heir of the photographer. These two things can be done in one message. If there are any photographs for which none of the three of you was the photographer, they require a license from the actual photographer or his heirs. .     Jim . . . .

NyctiprogneEdit

Hello James,
About Commons:Deletion requests/Nyctiprogne, I must confess that I am quite confused.

  • We clearly don't do this kind of redirect in biology. It should be suppressed.
  • you said yourself that you don't do biology.
  • you summary of vote closure is weid: if an external site has a link to Nyctiprogne, he will think we have 2 pictures for this genus. Sadly those pictures belong to another genus. That is bad.
  • 2 or 3 persons were for the suppression and only you against

So can you explain me more what happened?
I am a wikilover contributor. I would hate to have to ask biologists contributors I known to get involved in such a petty thing.
Best regards Liné1 (talk) 19:57, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Indeed, it is a petty thing. The redirect has been in place for ten years. It harms nobody and may be helpful to outsiders who stumble on it while looking for images. At the DR, I said my piece and left it. The DR stayed open for almost a month and finally was closed by one of our colleagues who apparently agreed with me that when pages have been in place since very early in Commons history, they should be left, unless there is a compelling reason to delete them. .     Jim . . . .

Undeletion request regarding the following filesEdit

File:Bavaria S.A..png File:Unidad Nacional para la Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres.jpg File:COTECMAR.png File:Migracion Colombia.png

Though you're right about the Commons:Threshold_of_originality#Colombia not being particularly clear on the translation, other files in wikimedia, in this case of a Colombian based company and an NGO of Colombia, are submitted with the {{PD-textlogo}}

File:Colombian Red Cross Logo.svg and File:Avianca Logo 2013.png

If those submissions are similar to mine, I want my uploads to be reconsidered.

The appropriate place for this discussion is at Commons:Undeletion_requests/Current_requests#File:Bavaria_S.A..png, not here. I've already given my comment there.

File:Colombian Red Cross Logo.svg has nothing in it that is not PD -- the Red Cross itself is over 150 years old and is long out of copyright, if it ever had one -- the laws were different then. The Avianca logo may well be a copyvio. The fact that other stuff exists is never a valid argument -- my best guess is that around 1% of the files on Commons -- over a quarter of a million files -- should be deleted for copyvio or other reasons. .     Jim . . . .

Please lend me your rhino-hide coat againEdit

Hiya Jim: It's even full moon. Please see [2] when you have a moment. I think this sound effect goes really well with the situation. Cheers and thanks. Ellin Beltz (talk) 20:41, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Carlisle Military SchoolEdit

Please tell me why a photo taken of a roadside marker violates any copyright? If there is a copyright on the historical data displayed I know of none - that data is in the public domain, much of it since 1892. The photo was taken by me. I am at a loss on how to disprove a negative dealing with Wiki editors. With no known copyright, how can I reference one? — Preceding unsigned comment added by SandHills (talk • contribs) 18:00, 5 May 2015‎ (UTC)

With some exceptions (detailed below), every created work -- art, architecture, music, and text -- has a copyright when it is created. Note that bare facts are not themselves copyrighted, but text used to express those facts is. Just as you cannot copy a book without a license, you cannot copy any other copyrighted text without a license. Historical markers are primarily text, so, as a general rule they cannot be kept on Commons unless one of these exceptions apply:

1) They were placed by the US Federal Government or the governments of Florida and California, all of whose works are PD.
2) They are in the USA and were placed:
a) before 1923,
b) before 1964 and there was no notice or the copyright was not renewed, or
c) before March 1, 1989 and there was no notice.

As I noted at Commons:Deletion requests/File:SCHistMkr.jpg the marker deleted there must be later than 1977 because it mentions that date on its face. There is no copyright notice on the marker, so, if was placed before March 1, 1989, it is PD. If placed after that date it is under copyright and will be until at least 2060. .     Jim . . . .
