I have the copyright on the photoEdit

Hello, I apparently neglected to clarify that I have the copyright on the photo that I uploaded to the driving simulator page. I am not sure how to proceed at this time. Can I simply upload the photo as second time and proceed with more caution than before?

Hi, I forgot to identify that I have the copyright on the photo I added to the driving simulator page last month, car sim virage.png. I am new to Wiki and do not know how to proceed. Please advise.DriverSafety (talk) 20:06, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

@DriverSafety: you can upload it again but you need to select a license in the Upload Wizard. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:17, 6 October 2018 (UTC)


Hello, I need your help to upload this picture :on the this URL url] Because we need it on Arabic Wikipedia for the same article, and the file is a candidate to be transferred to commonsهارون الرشيد العربي (talk) 23:10, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

@هارون الرشيد العربي: That's an interesting case. The image was given an incorrect license years ago by the uploader, and yet no one has noticed until just now. I think the image should not be copied to Commons; instead, please upload as fair use to Arabic Wikipedia. I can't read or write Arabic, but someone there might be able to help. Also, there's this page: ar:ويكيبيديا:محتوى غير حر. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:51, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
OK, thank you. هارون الرشيد العربي (talk) 04:54, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

OgreBot 2 "own" taggingEdit

Good morning Magog, please see [1]. OgreBot 2 tagged it as {{own}} when in reality it was something I transferred from :en. I'm assuming it read the "I ... created this work entirely by myself", but it missed that it was a transfer, not me actually saying that. --B (talk) 11:34, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

@B: thanks for the note. In general, we have used the own template on Commons also to refer to the original uploader. I did make a template to clear up the confusion: {{own work by original uploader}}. However, the template isn't as widely used. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:54, 8 October 2018 (UTC)


Oups, yes, sorry, I will do so next time. -- 11:58, 8 October 2018 (UTC) --Figuerai (talk) 11:59, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

User uploading the same image even after Copy-right violationsEdit

Hi, can you please have a look at User:DJ Kamal Mustafa. He has uploaded three versions File:Lieutenant Asim Munir.jpg under different names, first falsely claiming it be his own work then claiming it to be from the news outlet. None of these images are released under any license and the user either does not understand our policies or his deliberately violating them. Thanks. Adamgerber80 (talk) 18:43, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

@Adamgerber80: roughly speaking, the user should receive warnings twice after copyright violations, then a final notice ({{subst:end of copyvios}}), and then you can report at COM:ANU. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:06, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks.I gave them a first warning. Adamgerber80 (talk) 15:31, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Jonas BlueEdit

Hola, Magog. ¿Cómo estás?

Tengo una duda, con esta foto. ¿Cumple con las políticas? --C. Jonel [talk] 19:39, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

@C. Jonel: pienso que sí. La foto existe en otros sitios, pero ninguno la tiene con esta resolución. Además, el nombre del usuario es Jbwikiuser123, lo que me sugiere que el usuario representa a Jonas. Normalmente cuando los usuario suben las violaciones de copyright, no se molestan con un nombre de usuario para engañarnos. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:02, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Sí, pareciera que lo representara. Gracias, Magog. --C. Jonel [talk] 00:49, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Problems with an user and a IP (looks like the same person)Edit

Hi, Magog. Can you block this user? This is that guy who hates pop'n music media stuff for strange reasons again... He created that account just for vandalism (See his contributions here) Thanks.--VictorPines (talk) 00:57, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi again, I was cheking the user contributions from the user mentioned before, and found this strange picture. Then I checked the user who uploaded that and saw his User page... Um, well, I have a question: Is this user real? He even puts an URL of a personal Wikipedia possibly created by him, I'm not sure. Maybe you should take a look...--VictorPines (talk) 01:16, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
@VictorPines: I'm not sure what you mean by "is he real?" The user has 6000 edits on English Wikipedia, if that means anything. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:30, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
