Hi Magog the Ogre. Is there an alternative for the broken link at the bottom of de:Wikipedia:Administratoren/Anfragen/Aufgaben? --Leyo 09:57, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

@Leyo: try tools:magog/commons_images-de.htm and let me know if you face any issues. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 05:14, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. It seems to work fine. I fixed the link. --Leyo 23:19, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Honestly, I prefer the link to the first 500 rather than the overview. It is rare that there are more than 200 files in this category. The situation now is an exception, i.e. wdwdbot tagged a few hundred of legacy cases. --Leyo 09:58, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
@Leyo: then how will anyone see the update button? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:56, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Couldn't you place it in the gallery page, too? In the standard case, when there is just one gallery, the overview page is dispensable IMHO. --Leyo 11:37, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
@Leyo: yeah I'll do that. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:45, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. --Leyo 22:06, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Consistent Copy-right violations by userEdit

Hi, Alikhan090 has been consistently uploading copyright images on Wikimedia Commons and the English Wikipedia. All their images have been deleted in the past Special:Log/Alikhan090 and the current image has also been nominated for CR violations. Maybe a warning or a short-period block might be required. Thanks. Adamgerber80 (talk) 14:53, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

@Adamgerber80: I've given a last warning. FYI you can report such issues to COM:ANU for faster resolution in the future. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:35, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I will remember this in the future. Adamgerber80 (talk) 01:20, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
Can you kindly guide me how one can upload image other than his own camera. How we can use images on internet to upload on Wikipedia that comply your standards. Alikhan090 (talk) 05:44, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Tamara787 sockEdit

He's back. The newest (unblocked) sock is Elvesaugur. He has also been messing around on the English Wikipedia. Can you please run a Sleeper Check and block any sleepers? Thanks. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 21:42, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

@BlueHypercane761: Honestly I have been trying my very hardest to ignore the sockpuppetry because he mostly keeps his nose clean and has a skillset to contribute to a very notable issue, which it seems no one else has been able to replicate.

Uploading imageEdit

So can you guide me whats the legal and simple way of uploading pics. How we can upload pics from general internet other than our own camera Alikhan090 (talk) 05:36, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

@Alikhan090: hello. In general, you can upload pictures that you have taken; most other pictures you cannot upload to Commons. There are some exceptions, but they are pretty complicated; here is an essay if you're interested: Commons:Copyright rules.
You can sometimes upload logos or pictures of dead people as "fair use" on English Wikipedia. Living people you cannot. If you want more guidance, I can provide you some examples. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:56, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Sunny Leone Sexy Red Outfit, 02.22.2013.jpgEdit

Can you review this please sir?Rudra Tenio Chakraborty (talk) 13:23, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

@Rudra Tenio Chakraborty: you did everything right by checking the license, but it looks like the person who uploaded it to Flickr was themselves doing so in violation of copyright. It doesn't happen often but it's usually pretty easy to spot; we call it Flickr washing. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:20, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

About a license fileEdit

Hi, recently you sent me a message that the file File:REM map.png will be deleted 7 days after if there's no permission from the author. I contacted the author by email yesterday, and I sent them the email link to send the permission, and you will probably receive the permission for this file this week. I think that there's will not have major problems to get a permission for this file. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bill Wong (talk • contribs) 17:13, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

@Bill Wong: Hi. When they send the email to OTRS, or you forward the response to OTRS, please replace the missing permission note with {{subst:op}}. This alerts administrators that they shouldn't delete your page immediately, as it is awaiting confirmation. Thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:28, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
OK, but maybe I will not know when they will send the permission to OTRS, I don't know if they will respond to me by email to tell me about that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bill Wong (talk • contribs) 17:34, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
@Bill Wong: that's technically true, but it's unlikely. My experience is that creators almost always inform the petitioners when they send an email to OTRS. Even if that does happen, a volunteer will restore the image. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:23, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Kagney Linn Karter 07.09.2011.jpgEdit

I uploaded this photo because it has File:Cc-by new white.svg icon. But an editor deleted the file. Can you restore it? Please check yourself. I even used Google advanced search with filter "free to use and share" to be sure.

Flickr link is: Rudra Tenio Chakraborty (talk) 22:35, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

@Rudra Tenio Chakraborty: As I said on your talk page, Commons requires that images are available for commercial use and can be modified, so images with NC and/or ND are not allowed. See Com:Flickr and Com:Licensing. --Elisfkc (talk) 22:38, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
Ah. I got it now. Sorry.Rudra Tenio Chakraborty (talk) 22:50, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

nl.wikipedia → de.wikipediaEdit

How come? --Leyo 15:29, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

@Leyo: it removes the transferred from where it is redundant to the original upload log and there is another source present. Then the original description page got clobbered because the bot got confused by the unorthodox manner of local upload of another local upload. As far as I am concerned, this is an edge case and probably not worth spending much time on. Let me know if you see it again and what you think the fix should be.

File without source (url)Edit

Hello, I've notice a File, File:副總長執行官陳寶餘.jpg, does not have any source (url) for verification, only the name of publisher (Military News Agency in Taiwan) is given. Is it necessary to add a {{No source since}} to it? --Howard61313 (talk) 14 February 2018 (Wed) 04:03 (UTC)

@Howard61313: technically any image without a source should be marked no source, except obvious cases. That image, on the other hand, is a rather flagrant copyright violation, and someone correctly marked it as such. You can do so in the future.

2010 Alabama, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina gubernatorial mapsEdit

Can you make maps for the gubernatorial elections that were held in Alabama, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina in 2010? I would really appreciate it if you could. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 04:14, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Windows 7 logo.pngEdit


It appears File:Windows 7 logo.png has been re-uploaded just hours after you deleted it.

It is not just that. It appears the uploader, Un usuario de esta página, has been engaged in prolific copyright violation on 12 February 2018, uploading non-free images with fake licenses. Please see for yourself: Special:ListFiles/Un_usuario_de_esta_página.

User:OgreBot/Notable uploads for February 16Edit

Somehow it's missing. Please take a look. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:54, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

@EugeneZelenko: For some reason, the Wikimedia API is erroring when I try to hit that date. This will take a while to get fixed. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:19, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: see phabricator:T187759. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:47, 20 February 2018 (UTC)


Found a picture that infringes copyright:

This picture was edited from this website. My regards.--VictorPines (talk) 22:28, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Logo WpisEdit

Hi! Why did you delete my uploaded file? It is listed as public domain online to which I posted the cource/link. All the best! Sillmarillion (talk) 09:50, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

@Sillmarillion: sorry about that. Can you confirm for me that the website owns the copyright on the logo and isn't just reproducing it? I will restore it shortly once you can confirm this. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:29, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
@Magog the Ogre: Hi! The logo is taken from the company's website that owns and publishes the magazine. Since they classified the file to be Public Domain it should be safe to consider this to be true :) Sillmarillion (talk) 08:30, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
