Instagram app screenshot deletedEdit

Good afternoon, you deleted my photo. Please bring it back as everything you see there is my own work. File:Instagram app screenshot.jpg Thank you! Mickeysamuni (talk) 19:41, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

@Mickeysamuni: Collages like that require individual links to all parts that show that every image is under an acceptable license. The file description on that page did not include that. Please provide links to every image showing an acceptable license. --Majora (talk) 20:44, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
So you are saying I basically need to donate all the photos in the collage to Wikipedia in separate files? Mickeysamuni (talk) 21:01, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
@Mickeysamuni: I asked for links and links to the images on Instagram would be fine. Captions on each image stating what license each one is under would be preferable. --Majora (talk) 21:02, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I do not wish to give permission to each of the photos Mickeysamuni (talk) 01:17, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
@Mickeysamuni: I'm sorry but you can use this photo is not good enough for our purposes. You must allow anyone, including outside reusers, to use or modify the image at any time and for any purpose including commercial use. This requires an actual license statement, such as Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0, or something similar. Please see COM:L#Well-known licenses for a list of common licenses and pick one. In addition, we cannot take your word that you are who you say you are since this is the Internet and unfortunately people lie (not saying that you are it is just we can't take that risk). So either you have to physically add such a licensing statement on the images in question or you can go through COM:OTRS to confirm you are who you say you are. If you wish to go to later route please let me know and I can give you the OTRS instructions. I understand that this is a pain but it is just what we have to do and I hope that you can understand that. --Majora (talk) 21:18, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for being so nice and informative about this. I've been in Wikipedia for 7 years and I feel like it turned into a war zone. While I have no problem contributing the images as a collage, I do not wish to give the same permission to each one of my photos separately (these are 15 professional photos). If you wish, I can add the Commons 4 but I'll delete it from the photos tomorrow morning.Mickeysamuni (talk) 21:26, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
I understand, Mickeysamuni. The only other thing I can think of is for you to do an overarching statement on your main profile page. I don't use Instagram so I'm not sure if you can do that but if the stuff at the top of is directly editable you can always do something like, "All images on this page are placed under the <insert acceptable license here>". That would also work but the statement would have to stay there for verification purposes. --Majora (talk) 21:29, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Done Mickeysamuni (talk) 21:46, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
I am sorry, Mickeysamuni but you have to specific a license version number. Your original upload claimed CC-BY-SA-4.0 which stands for the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. What that means is that anyone can use it and modify it provided that they attribute you and that any modifications be released under a similar license. If you agree to those terms please state the full license name or its acronym on that page. I can restore the image here once that is done. Again, I am sorry for being so specific with the requirements and I do appreciate your understanding. --Majora (talk) 23:10, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I'm sorry. I thought about it and I don't want to give permission for each one of the photos. You can only use the collage. Mickeysamuni (talk) 01:17, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
I understand your decision. Unfortunately, without doing one of the above I can't undelete the collage. I am sorry. --Majora (talk) 02:11, 10 April 2019 (UTC)


Thanks!--StagiaireMGIMO (talk) 10:00, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

File:Stamps of Germany (DDR) 1975, MiNr 2029.jpgEdit

There is a template like "Free at 20xx" Please paste it. Sorry for my poor english. --Nightflyer (talk) 21:26, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

@Nightflyer: I would if I knew when it would be. Who created the stamp? Per Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Germany#Stamps copyright is 70 years after the death of the author. --Majora (talk) 21:33, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Gerhard Wilhelm August Stauf (* 28. Dezember 1924 in Burg (bei Magdeburg); † 25. April 1996 in Leipzig) --Nightflyer (talk) 21:39, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
  Done [1] --Majora (talk) 21:41, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Peter PetroffEdit

You can delete pics of Nasa of a dead ingenier? No one is going to claim image rights. It is absurd and idiotic and imbecile what you have done. delete delete delete , in this case is not correct. --Reterteed (talk) 17:46, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Copyright, generally, lasts 70 years after the copyright holder's death. The copyright holder is generally the photographer. The person in the photo being dead is irrelevant I'm afraid. Copyright is a complex topic, Reterteed, with a lot of variables. Also, please be civil. Continued personal attacks against other editors will result in the revocation of your editing privileges. --Majora (talk) 17:52, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello againEdit

I liked the way you talk to me. Can you tell me how to find interesting articles to take to Spanish wikipedia? I want to know you more and more too in real life. --Reterteed (talk) 01:57, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
