  • Signing your posts on talk pages is required and it is a Commons guideline to sign your posts on deletion requests, undeletion requests, and noticeboards. To do so, simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name or IP address (if you are not logged in) and a timestamp will then automatically be added when you save your comment. Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). Thank you.
You must discuss this at Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_868,383,950edits. Discussing it here just makes twice as much work for both of us. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:52, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

You've got mailEdit

There is a message in your mailbox that awaits your answer as a matter of urgency. Can you kindly have a look at it, please? odder (talk) 18:59, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

odder, the only new e-mail message from Commons is a question from the Dutch OTRS team. I'll read that right now, but if there's something else you have in mind, give me a hint of what it is about. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:51, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Check your inbox now. odder (talk) 21:54, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
odder, Got it, thanks. Will read and take appropriate action. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:11, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Can't wait to hear your thoughts! odder (talk) 22:34, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Half-open DREdit

Hi Jim, could you have a look at File:Khanda.jpg? Yann has left a mess here. The file is still tagged for deletion, but no longer listed in an active DR. I think the second closure of the DR should be reverted, but I am probably not the right person to do that. Jcb (talk) 21:35, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I globally replaced it with the SVG and deleted it, per the discussion at Yann's talk page. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:00, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Jcb (talk) 23:05, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi, While I don't oppose being deleted as it is not in use anymore, I am quite disappointed by your closure comment. If you think that there is a copyright violation, sorry to say, but you are out of touch with reality. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:29, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Yann, it is well established that individual representations of symbols such as Coats of Arms and this can have a copyright. This symbol is less than 100 years old and the creator of this version is unknown. I said "may or may not be under copyright". While I think that there is only maybe a one in ten chance that there is a copyright, it is certainly possible, so my comment was true. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:46, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
The JPEG version is strictly identical to the SVG version (and to the thousand ones available everywhere), so how could there be a copyright on the JPEG, and not on the SVG? That's why your argument doesn't make sense to me. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:06, 20 January 2017 (UTC)


Hello, I saw you decided to keep on this deletion request, but I don't understand the reason you have given for that. Clearly from the right hand side of the picture, this is a photograph of a framed photograph. EXIF does not tell much about that, nor can I connect this to your reason "certainly the pueblo is not under copyright". But that might be my lack of knowledge. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 20:23, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Hmm. I assumed it was shot out a window, but you're probably right. I'll reopen it, .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:01, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. Lymantria (talk) 12:10, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
