Mr. AustinEdit

Re:Commons:Help_desk#How_to_add_pubic_image_to_my_page: I agree with your prognosis. Especially the place where he lapsed into first person in writing about himself. Perhaps I should just have let Ruslik's original answer stand, but it seemed a bit too snarky for the help page. - Jmabel ! talk 01:20, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, I think we agree that if one has nothing helpful to say, it's better to say nothing at all. I might have been tempted to throw in a tongue-in-cheek reference to Commons:Nudity#New uploads in reference to the obvious typo, but not without any help on the real issue. Of course, sometimes (quite often, it seems) the helpful thing to say is "you can't/shouldn't do what you want to do." Cheers, LX (talk, contribs) 09:55, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Homenaje a Chapecoense en Girardot (31345909675).jpgEdit

and File:Homenaje a Chepecoense en Girardot (31309711716).jpg.

Hi, Since these files were reviewed, and a previous DR was kept, I think that a proper DR is better. In particular, the reviewer(s) and the closing admin(s) should be informed. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:45, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, if I'd noticed the previous deletion discussion, I would have taken that route. Cheers, LX (talk, contribs) 10:48, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Use Google TransltateEdit

Te voy a hablar en español. Evita mensajes como este que consideran mis contribuciones de mala fe. Solo fueron dos imágenes que un usuario de Wikipedia en Español me solicitó subir, creyendo que estaban con licencia Creative Commons. Te reportaré a los administradores por las agresiones en mi contra. Que @Yann: también sepa. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 13:50, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Fue un error de la Agencia ANDES, no mío, pues en Flickr aún figura con licencia CC. Soy usuario hace 4 años y entiendo bien de las normas. Ese mensaje me hirió mucho, pues no soy novato. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 13:59, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

I agree that Agencia de Noticias ANDES made the more serious mistake, as they really should know better. You made a smaller mistake in trusting them (and perhaps overlooking the description). I think that's quite understandable, which is why I took the time to write a personal note to explain what was going on instead of just the template notices. I don't know why you feel like I've been aggressive, and I'm sorry you feel that way. That certainly wasn't my intention. LX (talk, contribs) 14:25, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Indian Navy Image helpEdit

Hey, I noticed the discussion we had on the last Indian Navy image deletion and wanted to ensure that I did this one right. I uploaded a new image to Wikimedia commons, File:Tropex 2017.jpg and added the Indian navy license to it. How do I go about requesting an immediate license review on this? Thanks for all your help. Adamgerber80 (talk) 20:37, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

You already have requested review. By using {{Indian navy}} (rather than a generic cc-by tag), the file is placed in Category:Unreviewed photos from indiannavy.nic.in to be reviewed by a license reviewer or administrator. Since those resources are limited, that may not happen "immediately", but your upload will get the same priority as the rest. One thing you can do is to visit https://archive.org/, enter the source URL, and if it's not already archived, click the "Save this url in the Wayback Machine" on the resulting page. That should enable license review even if the source link goes dead. LX (talk, contribs) 20:54, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
Got it. I will archive it right way and keep this in mind for the future. Sorry for any trouble. Adamgerber80 (talk) 02:12, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
No trouble. LX (talk, contribs) 11:06, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

UpphovsrättsfrågaEdit

Hej! Filen med detta verk innehåller en hänvisning till denna sida där det står: "Det här verket har identifierats som fritt från kända upphovsrättsliga restriktioner, inklusive alla relaterade närstående rättigheter." Men, det står också bland annat "Detta verk är kanske inte fritt från kända upphovsrättsliga restriktioner i alla jurisdiktioner." Skulle du bedöma att verket är fritt och kan laddas upp på Commons? Edaen (talk) 11:15, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Upphovsrättsinnehavaren dog 1926, vilket innebär att upphovsrätten i Sverige är utgången sedan 1 januari 1997. För att kunna laddas upp på Commons måste även upphovsrätten i USA vara utgången. Reglerna för detta är mer komplicerade. Verket är publicerat efter 1922 och publicerades sannolikt inte i USA i samband med den ursprungliga publiceringen. Under de förutsättningarna är den avgörande frågan om verket var upphovsskyddat i Sverige den 1 januari 1996. Eftersom så är fallet är verket upphovsskyddat i USA 95 år från publicering. Det innebär att det bör vara möjligt att ladda upp det här den 1 januari 2022. Det är i alla fall min lekmannatolkning. LX (talk, contribs) 15:33, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Tack! Som du säger är det komplicerat. Eftersom det ändå är släppt under en fri licens fick jag förhoppningar. Edaen (talk) 20:05, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Jepp. Det här verket hamnade dessutom precis på "fel" sida om gränsen. Hade författaren dött bara ett år tidigare hade situationen varit helt annorlunda. LX (talk, contribs) 20:10, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

No, that is not enough, for several reasons.

Secondly, content restricted to {{noncommercial}} use is not allowed on Commons. Please read Commons:Project scope/Summary/es to understand what you can and cannot upload here.

US government Flickr streams licenseEdit

Hi there,

Saw a couple notices on my talk page regarding a few files I uploaded from a USFWS Flickr stream that, it would seem, they do not own, and which they changed the license from something incompatible with Commons. Disappointing, but oh well. I'd like to suggest, however, that you group these into a single deletion nomination. Was it just a single other Flickr stream it copied from that was incompatible? (I haven't dug very deep yet) — Rhododendrites talk |  18:33, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Rhododendrites! I probably would have started a mass deletion request if I'd come across them at the same time. I'm doing some searching for "by-nc" on file description pages, and these were just kind of scattered throughout. I recall coming across a few similar ones a while back; see Commons:Deletion requests/File:Poem by Spencer (8661671558).jpg and the others linked from there.
Searching for "by-nc" in pages mentioning 50838842@N06 or usfwshq, it looks like there are at least about 40 of these government copyright violations, all from various sources. (There's also one "by-nd", File:Ceratotherium simum simum (29645910396).jpg.) Seeing as a few of them have been uploaded by you, perhaps you could help go through those search results? LX (talk, contribs) 19:25, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
I just tried searching for ' "by-nc" rhododendrites ' and returned 17 hits. Is best practice to assume that if the description includes an incompatible license (one which conflicts with the license attached to the image via Flickr), that it should be deleted? Seems that way to me, but perhaps technically it's only required if it can be verified it was published with that license? (seems similar to the question of what happens if I publish an image on Flickr with a CC-BY, but in the text I write "CC-BY-NC" -- obviously since in this case the image was created by someone else it's different, but the process seems similar). — Rhododendrites talk |  19:37, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
I've nominated a handful of files for deletion where the photo appeared to be the uploader's own work, but where they provided statements in the description contradicting the machine readable license. (Obviously, I wouldn't nominate files that were deliberately multi-licensed.) This applies both to files uploaded directly here or transferred from Flickr. They pretty much always get deleted unless the uploader is willing to waive the noncommercial and nonderivative restrictions. LX (talk, contribs) 19:47, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Re: dragonfly crops; Thank youEdit

Hi LX, many thanks for your improvements to the licencing section of the two cropped images. I was not sure how I should format the licences, so your example makes the process very clear. I will follow this example in future as it makes the source quite clear for others to understand. I am sorry I made it difficult for you! Summerdrought (talk) 22:05, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Special:AbuseFilter/180Edit

The filter currently means: if you're new and you're uploading one of the disallowed file types, warn you, but if you insist the filter will let you pass. None of the conditions mentions WP0, and it is bypass-able. CC @Steinsplitter, Jdx:. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 09:03, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

FoP in SwedenEdit

Thank you for your concern here: [1]. Just want to assure you that I am not very distressed for my own sake. I just think it is very clear there is no FoP in Sweden, and therefore they cannot stay uploaded to Commons. In order to change that we should politely obey the rule on Commons but be more active lobbying. If we do not acknowledge the ruling, there is no ruling to change and we are fine with the fact that pictures from Commons depicting artwork may be subject to fee when used on Swedish websites. Såg att du är svensk nu, hoppas min engelska är begriplig.--LittleGun (talk) 20:10, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Jag håller med om att läget ser dystert ut. Enda hoppet som jag ser det står till överklagande, men eftersom grundproblemet är HD:s yttrande så förefaller det osannolikt att högre instans skulle komma till något annat beslut. För stunden har jag styrt upp Category:Swedish FOP cases, uppdaterat Commons:Freedom of panorama#Sweden och föreslagit omformulering av {{FoP-Sweden}}. LX (talk, contribs) 20:30, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

FoP byggnaderEdit

Among the pictures you've tagged with the new template, there are some which are either too old to protected such as File:Björktorpsskolan, Nyfors västra skola.JPG or are not sufficiently original like File:Brottsta, Stensättarvägen, Tunnbindarvägen höger.JPG or File:Barnens reptilhus, Parken Zoo.JPG. Edaen (talk) 20:00, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

All the files were already tagged as depictions of copyrighted works using {{FoP-Sweden}}. I didn't add this tag to any files today. In most cases, I believe the tags were added by the uploaders. Two days ago, I reworded the template, as discussed at Commons:Village pump/Copyright#Freedom of panorama in Sweden (or lack thereof). As you suggested there, I also added the possibility to separate between artworks and buildings. All I did today was to set the new parameter to building for the files that appeared to depict buildings out of the first 500 or so in Category:FoP-Sweden. All that does is to remove the text "or work of art" and change the category from Category:FoP-Sweden to Category:FoP-Sweden (buildings).
I'm not sure what it is you're asking me to do. Not touch a single file unless I've verified that all tags are correct, including researching architects not named in the file descriptions and questioning the uploaders' judgement on the threshold of originality of buildings in Sweden (which I don't think is very well established – it's not really been an issue before)? Sorry, not going to happen. Refrain from working on creating the separation you suggested? I guess I'll do that if my work is not appreciated. Of course, the result will be that the files are even more likely to be swept up in mass deletions. LX (talk, contribs) 20:32, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Sorry. I didn't see that you just changed the parameter. Edaen (talk) 20:37, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Flickr reviewEdit

Why? Jon Kolbert (talk) 20:00, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Jon, and sorry about this! I've been tagging a lot of unreviewed files from Flickr using VisualFileChange. I've done my best to deselect files that have already been reviewed using appropriate regular expressions. Obviously this one slipped through, probably because it used {{LicenseReview}} rather than {{flickrreview}} or one of the FlickreviewR user namespace tags, and I guess I missed it when reviewing manually. I'll add a few points to my checklists, so thanks for pointing this out, and sorry again for the trouble. LX (talk, contribs) 20:11, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Categories helpEdit

Hello,

I was wondering if you could give me some tips for adding categories to my photo's. Thanks in advance!

Sincerely, NeoMeesje (talk) 21:47, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Commons:Categories covers it pretty well, especially Commons:Categories#Categorization tips. Keep in mind that categories are not tags, but a hierarchical structure. Explore the categories to see if its parent categories, contents and description (if any) match the files you want to add and if there are more suitable subcategories. Try to be as specific as possible, and avoid over-categorization. LX (talk, contribs) 23:45, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

VandalismEdit

The IP here has not made any vandalism, has simply opened a DR in a civic manner. There is no harm in discussing anything. OTOH I avoid calling "vandalism" any edits by established users, therefore will only tell you not to close "hastily" any discussion, please, so that people will not feel bitten, other than for usual reasons. Cheers. --E4024 (talk) 08:56, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

I believe I explained very clearly in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Muslim depiction of Muhammad - 17th century Ottoman copy from the "Edinburgh codex".jpg why re-nominations that do nothing but repeat invalid reasons of the previous 23+ discussions are considered disruptive. Commons:Deletion requests#Appealing decisions also states that users should refrain from re-nominating files for deletion without raising new points. Make no mistake: the drive-by IPs that are nominating these files for deletion are not looking for a discussion; they're simply hell-bent on erasing cultural heritage.

User:Meethi19Edit

Hi LX. I'm posting this here since you had previously warned this editor at User talk:Meethi19#Copyright violations about uploading copyvios back in May 2016, but they do not seem to have taken your advice and have had multiple files deleted as copyvios since that time. I just tagged File:Trishnatheband.jpg as a copyvio since it was taken from Facebook. I was going to warn the editor again, but I'm not sure if that will have any effect, so I'd figured I'd discuss the situation with you instead. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:01, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Marchjuly! I would have hoped that at least one of the administrators that deleted the copyright violations uploaded after the "final" warning that I gave in May would have blocked the uploader, but I guess administrators either no longer take the time to look into the uploaders when clearing out Category:Copyright violations, or they don't think serial copyright violators are a big deal, or both. It might be time to put in a request at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Blocks and protections. LX (talk, contribs) 06:43, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Need your help!Edit

Hi LX, After you instructed me better about the images of vase paintings, I went back through all of my uploads and nominated the ones I think may be in violation of copyright for the same reason. I couldn't see any instruction anywhere for how to delete a file I uploaded, so I just hit the nominate for deletion link and gave this reason for why it should be deleted: I mistakenly thought this was a 2-D work of art (because it's a painting) but now I understand it's a 3-D work of art (because it's a vase). Please Delete this so I won't be in violation of a copyright law!

I hope you will be able to help me get those files deleted. I really don't like to make such an embarrassing mistake, but now I must clean up my mess, and I'll be way more careful in the future.

Aisha AishaAbdel (talk) 01:40, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

AishaAbdel: I only wish everyone would be as responsive and proactive as you! Only administrators can delete files. Using the nominate for deletion link to start a deletion discussion is generally the appropriate way to request deletion. For files that you uploaded less than seven days ago, you could alternatively add {{SDG7}} to request speedy deletion instead. Deletion discussions are typically processed after 7–10 days, while speedy deletions are typically processed within a day. LX (talk, contribs) 17:29, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

thank you. Do you mean the text of the old Manuscript!? Of course not. The scribe mentioned that he wrote this book in Baghdad in 1633.Usamasaad 16:16, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Usamasaad: Then it looks like you have some corrections to make to the file description of this and every other file in the batch. LX (talk, contribs) 16:23, 23 March 2018 (UTC).
Thank you. ..Usamasaad 16:25, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Usamasaad: In an earlier version of the reply, you asked what to do. Here is what you need to do, specifically:
  1. Provide correct copyright information: {{PD-old-100-1923}} or similar, rather than {{self|cc-by-sa-4.0}}.
  2. Provide correct authorship information: Najm al-Dīn al-Qazwīnī al-Kātibī/نجم الدين الكاتبي القزويني (right?), rather than Usamasaad.
  3. Provide correct source information: the address of the web page where you got it from, or {{Scan}} if you scanned it yourself.
LX (talk, contribs) 16:43, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I will put {{PD-old-100-1923}} , {{Scan}}, and the name to the owner of the books (Mullah Qasim Effendi Al-Arim Al-Ani/ ar:قاسم أفندي المفتي) or the authorship information: Najm al-Dīn al-Qazwīnī al-Kātibī/نجم الدين الكاتبي القزويني . Usamasaad 19:33, 23 March 2018 (UTC).

I assume "this" refers to the discussions taking place at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Bienvenido Bones and Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Paintings by Bienvenido Bones. You would need to explain (in those discussions) why the content in question is within the project scope of Wikimedia Commons (especially considering that your attempts at writing about yourself were rejected at English Wikipedia). It would help if your arguments were more succinct and coherent than your previous one. You would also need to correct the source, authorship and copyright information for all the content you didn't create yourself, and you would need to obtain and submit copyright permissions from all copyright holders using the procedure described at Commons:OTRS.

A Barnstar For You!Edit

  The Copyright inspector Barnstar
For your long term work on copyright status inspection, and your guidance and assistance in File:Shanghai Pudong International Airport 1.jpg!廣九直通車 (talk) 10:58, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
廣九直通車: Thank you for your kind words. I also addressed the similar issue with File:Airport Expwy TollGate.jpg. Here are a few hints that you might helpful in tracking down the source information for files like this:
  • In most cases, you can assume the file had the same name on Wikipedia.
  • You can find logs for files on English Wikipedia by going to en:Special:Log and entering the name in the "Target" field. Remember to include the File: namespace.
  • Sometimes, only the deletion is shown. Uploads made prior to December 2004 are not included. Older uploads were manually logged; see en:Wikipedia:Upload log.
  • If the file had a different name on Wikipedia, it may be useful to look at the original uploader's log (if mentioned by the user making the transfer). Go to en:Special:Log and enter the user's name in the "Performer" field. Do not include the User: namespace. Won't worn for uploads made prior to December 2004.
  • You can search for the filename or the original uploader's name in the manually logged uploads by going to en:Special:Search and adding prefix:Wikipedia:Upload_log after the filename or username.
  • You can find copies of old file descriptions using archive.org's Wayback Machine. Prior to the deployment of Mediawiki 1.14 in 2009, the File: namespace was called Image:, so the pattern for the URLs is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Name_of_the_file.jpg. Some snapshots seem to contain more information than others.
  • The same principles apply to files from other projects (except the manual upload logs, which I believe is specific to English Wikipedia). It may be helpful to change the interface language.
This might seem like a lot of work, but I think we owe it to reusers and the original uploaders not to take such deletions lightly – it's not their fault if the person who made the transfer left out a bunch of details. But if all of the above fails or the original upload also lacked information, then I agree with deletion. Cheers, LX (talk, contribs) 12:23, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

About《Rocío Reza.jpg》and 《OscarGonzalesEguiarte.jpg》Edit

I "LX", I saw the request to delete the files but I don't understand why, if you can tell me what's the problem with the files I probably fix then, but, the files are in use and they're about a politician and a bushwaker, and they had their articles in the Spanish Wikipedia (es:Rocío Reza Gallegos and es:Óscar González Eguiarte). I hope we could fix this.

P.S. Sorry for the bad grammar but I'm not really good with the English.

Hola "LX", he observado el requerimiento de borrado de los archivos sin embargo no logro entender del todo el porque. Si pudieras decirme cual es el problema con los archivos podría arreglarlo sin embargo te menciono que los archivos son sobre una política y un guerrillero respectivamente y estos tienen sus artículos en la wikipedia en español (es:Rocío Reza Gallegos and es:Óscar González Eguiarte). Espero que podamos solucionar este problema.

P.D. Una disculpa por la mala gramática, en realidad no soy muy bueno con el inglés. ¡Saludos!

EddieBurciaga (talk) 02:08, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

The problem is that I don't believe that you personally created those photographs yourself. If you personally created File:Rocio Reza.jpg yourself, why is the photo so small? Would you be able to provide the original full-resolution photo? If you personally created File:OscarGonzalezEguiarte.png, why does it look like a photo of a photo or a screenshot of a video? If you can answer these questions, the right place to do it is in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Rocio Reza.jpg and Commons:Deletion requests/File:OscarGonzalezEguiarte.png. LX (talk, contribs) 09:11, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
About the File:Rocio Reza.jpg it was created by my self, and I explained you here (Commons:Deletion requests/File:Rocio Reza.jpg) and the photo is small beacuse I took the photo with a cellphone and appear other men and women and obvously they don't want to apper in the internet.

license validEdit

Hello, image [4] website [5] You are free to copy texts, whether in whole or part, and pictures from this website provided that proper acknowledgement is given.

What is the license used? - Mraslat (talk) 15:04, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Mraslat: First of all, the only one who can grant a legitimate license is the copyright holder. Webs.com is a free web host where anyone can create a site anonymously, so there is no way to know who is behind alshorta.webs.com. Whoever they are, they are using photos created by others. For example, the photo of Alaa Mhawi is a non-free photo by Robert Cianflone/Getty Images AsiaPac. alshorta.webs.com probably don't have the right to use that photo themselves, they certainly don't have the right to use it without attribution, they definitely don't have the right to let others use it, and they absolutely don't have the right to demand that alshorta.webs.com is credited for the works of others. I don't know if the photo of Mohanad Ali is also grabbed from a non-free source, but the site clearly cannot be trusted when it comes to copyright.
Secondly, even if that statement had been issued by the legitimate copyright holder, it is not sufficient for our purposes. Commons requires licenses used here to explicitly allow anyone to use, modify and redistribute the work for any purpose, including commercial purposes. That statement only mentions copying and does not say whether modifications or commercial uses are allowed. If you are unsure, it is best to avoid sources that don't explicitly mention a well-known license by name. LX (talk, contribs) 16:49, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
