User talk:Magog the Ogre

The Rolling StonesEdit

Hello, Magog. The proper name of this band is The Rolling Stones, and yet everything on the commons is at Rolling Stones. Could you please move this? - Bossanoven (talk) 18:55, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

@Bossanoven: ✓ Done. If you want to know how to do it in the future, let me know. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:49, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I might take you up on that some time. One more subcat to get: Category:Members of Rolling Stones to Category:Members of the Rolling Stones. - Bossanoven (talk) 08:26, 11 February 2015 (UTC) Could you please move this, Magog? - Bossanoven (talk) 02:00, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello, could you please respond? - Bossanoven (talk) 09:02, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

@Bossanoven: I already moved it to Category:The Rolling Stones members. This seemed like a good way to avoid confusion over capitalizing the and it matched English Wikipedia. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:14, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Forgive me. I guess my adamance paid off, but also made me look like an a$$. - Bossanoven (talk) 08:28, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

@Bossanoven: not really; I forgot to respond. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:40, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Swakopmund photoEdit


Could you specify what exactly is needed? E.g.:

Photograph by Paavo Korhonen. Used by permission of the Korhonen estate, as granted by his daughter Kaarina Toivola.

Yours sincerely, Panu Hallamaa (talk) 18:02, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

@Panu Hallamaa: We will need two things:
  1. An explicit license.
  2. A written statement from the copyright holder that they are releasing it under that license.
You can see templates at Commons:Email templates (English) and Commons:Kirjepohjat (Finnish). If the copyright holder isn't good with computers, you can print out the document and scan it for us instead of having her email the permission.

User:Giorgi BalakhadzeEdit


I noticed today that last year you blocked this user several times for disruptive editing and edit warring, latest time indef, but then unblocked after "user has promised to stop edit warring".

Since they initiated an edit war on Commons talk:Freedom of panorama today, so that the page had to be full protected for a while, and also immediately (!) opened numerous RfD's (some of which are unjustified) against the user they editwarred against (so, clear case of "revenge DR"), I have now indef'ed them again, as I suppose that it is very similar behaviour to that for which they were formerly indef'ed by you.

Now that I don't know what was the exact problem back then, I decided to let you know. If you think that it's not the same behaviour pattern, and/or there is hope for constructive contribution, feel free to modify the block the way you like. (As I see, they already asked for {{unblock}}.) --A.Savin 19:14, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. --A.Savin 20:00, 14 February 2015 (UTC)


Can you review that image and this image? i think both pics are from internet and the "author" lo está haciendo pasar por obra propia. Saludos.--VictorPines (talk) 08:46, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

@VictorPines: me parece probable que el sujeto o alguien cerca del sujeto escribió el artículo y subió esas imágenes. El tono de los artículos es promocional, y todas las imágenes subidas son de la misma persona. El uso de múltiples cuentas es desafortunada aunque es predecible.

Please do not remove it is mine (talk) 13:30, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

My filesEdit

Good day! I uploaded 13 files from the blog of Mark Serov: In this blog, he pointed out that he permits the use of files. Watch: (In Russian) --7777user7777 (talk) 13:44, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

@7777user7777: asking someone to be able to use "on Wikipedia" is not a sufficient license. Please see Commons:OTRS/ru for an example of acceptable licenses. Thanks! Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 15:05, 15 February 2015 (UTC)


FWIW a fair few more have been uploaded today that may need adding to the DR? Cheers --Herby talk thyme 13:57, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

@Herbythyme: thanks. In the future, feel free to {{sofixit}} Face-smile.svg Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 15:06, 15 February 2015 (UTC)


You changed the license tag on this file from {{PD-scan}} to {{PD-art}} and I don't understand why. I thought {{PD-art}} was meant to be used only for photographs taken from a distance, see Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag. WεFt (talk) 10:04, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Someone added that presumably because he wanted hits to his page.[1]. In reality, I don't see how the policies are even distinguishable from one another. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:38, 17 February 2015 (UTC)


I did provided the required info, days ago, before the deletion date. Could you please restore the file, and in future be more careful? Thankyou.--EfePino (talk) 09:24, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

@EfePino: después de añadir la fuente, hay que quitar la plantilla, o puede que el bibliotecario (¡no yo!) no la vea y borra el archivo. Lo he restaurado. Face-smile.svg Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:32, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

New usersEdit

Hi Magog, you operate a bot that lists uploads by supposedly new users. Unfortunately, your bot request did not specify which criteria your bot uses to consider a user as being new. I wonder which criterias are used as the uploads by Rax are listed by your bot despite Rax being around here since nearly 10 years. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 12:16, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

@AFBorchert: < 150 edits. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:21, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, this explains it as the user had just 121 edits. AFBorchert (talk) 06:22, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
 ;) I'll do my best to reach the break-even after ten years ;) best wishes --Rax (talk) 10:23, 24 February 2015 (UTC)


Hola, Magog the Ogre.

Cómo has estado? Por favor, retira esta imagen, es una violación a los derechos de autor. --C.Jonel [contact me] 13:42, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Estoy bien; ¿y tú? Imágenes ✓ retiradas. En el futuro, si no quieres esperar, y si no estás seguro si es una violación, puedes hacer clic en el enlace en la sección de las herramientas que se llama «Nominate for deletion» (si tus preferencias son en inglés) o «Proponer la eliminación» (español). Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 14:59, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Estoy muy bien. Face-grin.svg. Yo sé como hacerlo, lo que pasó fue que estaba desde mi celular. --C.Jonel [contact me] 17:59, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

re:Copyright status: File:Rio Camino a San Fabian.pngEdit

Hello, I come to talk to you about the issue of the possible removal of my image, I'll leave the same photo just not edited, the went up again but not edited, I mean the picture, greetings!

  • and it is my own work.

--Carliitaeliza (talk) 17:09, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

@Carliitaeliza: that is fine, we just need you to provide a license for your image, which it looks like you forgot. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:59, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
