Removal of photosEdit

Hello Jarekt,

I have had a request from the person who owns these 3 images to please remove them from Wikipedia. "Please remove the two images (there are actually 3) of the Greek Cathedral in Winnipeg which are my images, published on Ipernity with all rights reserved." I would like to oblige this person's request.

The files are:

File:Greek Church in Winnipeg postcard 2.jpg, File:Greek Church Winnipeg 1906.jpg, File:Tin Can Cathedral with Hotel Dufferin.jpg

I have removed them from the Tin Can Cathedral Wikimedia Commons file. But there are other files that have been created since I put them into Wikipedia, that have used these images, and I am reluctant to go into files created by others and remove them. Can you help with this? Would it be possible to delete these three images with an explanation for other editors, that this was done out of courtesy in response to a request from the owner that they be removed? When you have a chance could you take a look? Nicola Mitchell (talk) 16:31, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Nicola Mitchell, Those photographs seem to be postcards published around 1906. Your correspondence is likely with a person that owns those 3 physical postcards, which are in Public domain in the US, but he does not own copyrights to those photographs. Scanning or taking photo of some old photograph does not give you copyrights in US. Please do not remove those files from any pages. --Jarekt (talk) 02:34, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Can "Wikimedia Commons" <>, who passed along an e-mail from Wikimedia Commons email from user "Canafornian" whose e-mail address is: "Canafornian" <>, send this person a reply to that effect? So that I don't reveal my e-mail address to them? Nicola Mitchell (talk) 11:15, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Nicola Mitchell, If you forward the email to and let me know that you did than I reply from there. --Jarekt (talk) 11:52, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Okay I've just forwarded the e-mail to: Thank you for this!Nicola Mitchell (talk) 13:39, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Here is the ticket number: If you want to send more emails about the same subject, please add the following to the subject bar of the email: [Ticket#: 2019050610007027].

Beginning and end Monthly Photo ChallangeEdit

Hi Jarekt, I need your help. I am not able to find my image in the voting page of Beginning and end Monthly Photo Challange. Is there any process to put my images there too.   Thanks, Bijay chaurasia (talk) 18:06, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Bijay chaurasia, the software used for processing rejects all the images uploded outside the time of competition. See source code of Commons:Photo challenge/2019 - April - Beginning and end/Voting and "REMOVED: Meeting point of Sunkoshi and Tama Koshi River from Beni Ghat-IMG0620-Pano.jpg by Bijay chaurasia was uploaded 04 January 2019 before the challenge opened (01 April 2019)". There is a lot of images rejected that way each month and the software is not designed to alert users beyond that cryptic message. Perhaps that is something that could be improved. --Jarekt (talk) 03:04, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Bonjour, je ne sais pas si c'est votre dernière modification qui en est la cause, mais le modèle Creator dysfonctionne. Voir. Cordialement.Finoskov (talk) 13:10, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

    • Hello, thanks, everything is now ok ; cordially. Finoskov (talk) 20:54, 19 May 2019 (UTC)


Hello, I saw that edit [2]

But, where has the big wikisource button gone ? I cannot find it anymore :( --Hsarrazin (talk) 07:02, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

It is intended to be in the top bar next to wikidata icon and edit icon, the way it is on all the other templates like {{Artwork}} or {{Creator}}. Is it missing in some cases? --Jarekt (talk) 07:08, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Can you please correct your edits? No longer does the header atop {{Artwork}} read Author: Title following the icon(s) with respect to |wikidata=. Please view/purge this file for example. Thanks. AlbanGeller (talk) 14:24, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
