Re: Flags of Darfur and LebanonEdit

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for notifying me about your flagging of the flags of Darfur and Lebanon as missing source information.

Although I am not the original creator of either, and both have since undergone revisions since mine, I'll just point out that in the upload history sections of each, you can see that source information was originally provided: Flag of Darfur.svg was originally tagged with Template:PD-self by User:Walden69, indicating it was his own work, while Flag of Lebanon.svg was originally attributed by User:Nightstallion to Openclipart. I don't know when or why the source information was removed from either, but it was evidently there to begin with, and it seems rather silly to e to be threatening deletion of files which have been used on literally tens of thousands of pages for over a decade simply because of what amounts to a clerical error.

Best regards,

Mnmazur (talk) 08:25, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Sorry for the inconvenience. I flagged those flag images because Green Giant had copied them from Category:Images without source to Category:Images of flags without source. They were in Category:Images without source because the source field in their Information templates was not filled in when those information templates were added. All actions were mistakes, I am sorry for mine.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 06:07, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

File:Joseph_Schuster_(composer).jpgEdit

Hi, you left a mark saying that I did not provide sufficient info to that higher-res. version of the portrait for German baroque composer Joseph Schuster. Obviously the sketch is from some 19th-century, maybe earlier, journals for the educated classes, maybe from some musicological annual of that time. Yet this is something I only guess and cannot say for sure. In any case, there is 1) the names of the artists who created it in the engraving itself (see beneath the oval) - painting by v. Vieth of 1796, engraving by Pettschich in 1811, and 2) the link to the original source, the graphic collection of the university library of Frankfurt University, should be sufficient, should it not?--2A00:C1A0:4A00:2800:DCD8:5CA2:E6F1:E2D8 09:32, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes, sorry for the inconvenience.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 06:03, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Category:Media without a source as of 19 June 2018Edit

Hi, before tagging files as 'no source' please see if the problem cannot be fixed. E.g. last September I spent a lot of time to fix sources for a large number of Indonesian CoA's (files beginning with 'Lambang'), which I found in Category:Images without source. For e.g. File:Lambang Kabupaten Subang.jpeg you could have simple removed the redundant maintenance category instead of tagging the file for deletion. On the other hand, you tagged a lot of files that are ineligible for copyright, e.g. File:Flag of Varese.jpg. In such cases you can simply add {unknown|source} to the source field instead of tagging for deletion. Jcb (talk) 15:22, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

@Jcb: Sorry about that. I will go through them.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 15:25, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Jcb (talk) 15:27, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jcb: You're welcome. I did some, more after work.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:20, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jcb: I went through all of the files in Category:Coats of arms of cities of Indonesia needing source. The only one I couldn't find a good source for was File:Logo kabupaten sarolangun.jpg, all the identical ones seem to have been copied from here.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 08:42, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, you are probably right on this one. I could not track it back to an official government website either. Jcb (talk) 15:04, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jcb: Thank you.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 15:19, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

HelpEdit

Hello,

Last month I asked for help regarding the sending of an email to a Flickr user about a change of licence to a photo for use in the Wikipedia article w:Graham Potter. Unfortunately, it seems the Flickr user did not agree to change the licence. Since you were kind enough to help me last time, could you send an email to this Flickr user regarding the licence change of this image (https://www.flickr.com/photos/7788682@N06/26924348538/in/photolist-H2djMQ-CMCvRv) instead? It is the only other suitable Flickr image of the subject I can find; I still think the aforementioned Wikipedia article would benefit from an image in the infobox. Thank you and kind regards Doogooder (talk) 19:16, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

@Doogooder: I sent him a Flickrmail message.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 00:50, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Thanks very much. Hopefully we'll have more success with this Flickr user instead. Doogooder (talk) 06:31, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Doogooder: You're welcome.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 06:36, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Flyby "no source" tags on documents that are hundreds of years oldEdit

Could you please desist from the apparently careless no source tagging of very old documents please? The template encourages unthinking deletion of the images. In some cases these may be lower quality than other versions, but the correct process is to use the duplicate template or raise a deletion request if the case is not clear. Where the images are in use on other projects, as the example below is, a deletion request is always the best way to discuss any potential deletion.

The no source tags you added yesterday to files that have been hosted on this project for ten years are disruptive and waste volunteer time.

  1. File:Desportes - Premières œuvres (éd. 1600) II - Les Amours d'Hippolyte.djvu
  2. File:Desportes - Premières œuvres (éd. 1600) III - Cleonice. Dernières Amours.djvu
  3. File:Desportes - Premières œuvres (éd. 1600) IV - Elegies.djvu
  4. File:Desportes - Premières œuvres (éd. 1600) V - Imitations de L'Arioste.djvu
  5. File:Desportes - Premières œuvres (éd. 1600) VI - Meslanges I.djvu
  6. File:Desportes - Premières œuvres (éd. 1600) I - Diane. Premières Amours.djvu

There are plenty of other backlogs to spend time on that are unlikely to cause any disruption or controversy. Thanks -- (talk) 07:59, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes, sorry for the inconvenience.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 08:19, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Please take action to remove the inappropriate no source tags from all the clearly PD files you have tagged. In the same batch yesterday was File:Ecrazer-l-infame-1.jpg. I am sure you have the skills needed to find these among your other actions in the last 24 hours. -- (talk) 09:21, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

@:    Done , sorry.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 09:47, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Zimbabwean currencyEdit

Jeff, you must understand what does “mechanical reproduction of currency” mean. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:22, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes, sorry for the inconvenience. I flagged those currency images because Ellin Beltz had copied them from Category:Images without source to Category:Images of currency without source. They were in Category:Images without source because the source field in their Information templates was not filled in when those information templates were added. All actions were mistakes, I am sorry for mine.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 08:38, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Unsourced taggingEdit

Why have you tagged File:Flag of Prague Old City.svg and File:Flag of Pribram.svg as needing source info when they are clearly simple geometry making them public domain?--BevinKacon (talk) 23:04, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
