What exactly is missing? The video itself declares that it is in CC-by-SA 4.0 and the author is Wiki Learning Tec de Monterrey (I am the coordinaor of this WMF-recognized user group). In the description, it says the declaration is in the credits.Thelmadatter (talk) 09:09, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

@Thelmadatter: it didn't have a copyright tag, which is required for all files. Anyway I recognized the issue and fixed it soon after I marked it.[1] Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:11, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you... I appreciate it.Thelmadatter (talk) 03:14, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello, Magog.Edit

Today I have two little problems:

  • Remember that time I was looking for your help to keep this image? Saddly, it was deleted days ago despiting your advice on the nomination discuss. Do you think if I can upload again the image, but using the edited picture? It won't be deleted again?
  • Can I upload this image con Commons? It won't get any strike?
  • Do you know where are the general templates to mark an image as not allowed on speed deletion? I mean, the general page of templates for any kind of maintenance of Commons for images?

My regards.--VictorPines (talk) 22:39, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Apparently they decided the image was pointless as blurred. Do you have somewhere you plan to use it?
  • No, that image is a derivative.
  • No, we have no such template.

Magog, about the deleted image, it was planned to show the screen positions; the upper screen displays movies and charts, while the lower one is a multi-touch panel, this last is manipulated by the player. I'm not only uploading pictures to keep images, they will have an use on articles.
To finish, can you give me the tamplate for speed deletion? sometimes I see new poor articles with images uploaded on Commons brought with copyright.--VictorPines (talk) 00:36, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
@Jameslwoodward: would you consider restoring this image?
@VictorPines: you want {{copyvio}}. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:40, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
For the record, we are talking about Commons:Deletion requests/File:BeatStream screen display.jpg. I should start by saying that the fact that you suggested keeping the latest version at the DR made me think for a few minutes. I have more respect for your opinion than that of most of our colleagues and I don't like to cross it.
On this kind of problem, I generally feel that we are caught between a rock and a hard place. If the image is too close to the original, then it is a dertivative work. On the other hand if it is blurred enough so that it is no longer a derivative work, then it is just a meaningless blur and therefore out of scope. I think that is the case here, and Josve5a and Mattbuck agreed with me.
With that said, scope is not as hard a line as copyvio, so if you think the last version ought to be restored, please go ahead and do it with my blessing. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:56, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
In that case, Can I upload it again?, (Jameslwoodward)?--VictorPines (talk) 22:29, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
@VictorPines: if that's how you'd prefer to do it rather than a restoration, go for it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:44, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
A restoration would be great! How can I restore the picture? This will be my last question until further notice.--VictorPines (talk) 18:08, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi Magog the Ogre, there are a lot of non-standard dates that can be found with this search: [2]. Is your bot able to clean up at least some of them? Thank you in advance, --Arnd (talk) 16:54, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

@Aschroet: that sounds pretty hard actually. I hope to open source my tools here at some point, and maybe you could set up a workspace to run them and make the changes on your own if you know how to code. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:48, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Hi, is it really? I thought it can be easily done by removing the "created" and then use the normal date cleanup as it is already implemented in your bot. But actually i could do this on my own, right? Ok, i will try to do so. --Arnd (talk) 06:04, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
@Aschroet: It is now open sourced at Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:17, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
Some day soon I will also provide a how-to for running locally if there is demand. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:34, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Sorry for may Copyright vaolent.but anather website's photo are upload in wikimedia commans how? Template:শুভেন্দু খাঁ 05:56, 24 March 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by খাঁ শুভেন্দু (talk • contribs) 05:56, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

@খাঁ শুভেন্দু: for the most part, we cannot upload these. We have an essay explanation here: COM:NETCOPYVIO. In rare cases, you can ask the uploader for an exception if you are willing to go through the process outlined here: Commons:Email templates.

Hello thereEdit

Hey magog, about the image you restore time ago, an user flagged it. I talked with him but he decided to keep the image flagged, see here the talk page.--VictorPines (talk) 00:39, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

@VictorPines: there are now three administrators who have said they think the image isn't very useful. I suggest putting it in use ASAP if you plan to do so. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:30, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Upload wizard QEdit

I... yesterday I uploaded some 3D models done by students of Wiki Learning Tec de Monterrey (a user group which I coordinate) using the upload wizard. Ive noticed that sometimes when I use the wizard to upload these things (which are not my work but are marked as CC-by-SA 4.0) there have been problems with being corrected tagged on the resulting page. Is this file File:Trompo3DWikiLearning.webm OK? If not, what am I not doing when I go through the wizard's steps?--Thelmadatter (talk) 14:35, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

@Thelmadatter: yes it looks good. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:23, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Film uploadsEdit

This user uploaded a lot of images related to a film Daddy's Daughter as own work and CC 4.0 licensing. What I'm finding about the film is clips here, apparently uploaded at YouTube by the film's creators/producers. The uploads are copies taken from them. I think there's a copyright on the film and they shouldn't be here. Thanks, We hope (talk) 16:00, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

@We hope: I marked them as needing permission through OTRS. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:27, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! :) We hope (talk) 19:05, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
