About uploading Image:MetroLigeroMad_logo_1-borde.pngEdit

Hi, I created this image. and of course it has no copyright, it's just a label for Line 1 of Madrid's light rail. I hope you have understood it hasn't copyright.
Javitomad 12:25, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Should be fine, try to make it clear on the licencing. Thanks. Majorly (talk) 12:43, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Image:Woman in Fort Lamy, Chad.jpgEdit

I'm not sure what you want from me. The image is a work of the US federal government and is in the public domain. Why did you change the tag? BrianSmithson 09:56, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

I didn't. Majorly (talk) 09:57, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
I think I must have just forgotten to put the tag. Thanks. BrianSmithson 10:00, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
No problem :) Majorly (talk) 10:00, 29 May 2007 (UTC)


Hi, you put a tag on this picture stating that it didn't have permission to be used. It was taken in 1902 and published then and is thus out of copyright on both publishing date +70 years and pre-1923 publishing criteria, why should permission be required?-- 01:08, 1 June 2007 (UTC) Sorry, that was me.--Jackyd101 01:09, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, looks like my error I think. Majorly (talk) 01:59, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
S'OK, good to see people are vigilant for copyright violations, keep up the good work.--Jackyd101 03:21, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Do you want to remove the tag or is it OK if I go ahead and do it?--Jackyd101 03:23, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Ah you can. Majorly (talk) 15:00, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

US Navy ImagesEdit

I will expand the image page wording, but I think it strains credibility that an image from "" without any other image credits isn't a PD Navy image. Nardman1 01:22, 2 June 2007 (UTC)


Morning. You have removed and tagged this image which I have indicated was taken from Wikipedia (and would have originally been in the public domain as having been broadcast on Dutch TV) stating that it is not a source. According to Commons:Upload there is an option which clearly says :

One of us is confused. CWiltshire 10:04, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

The image on Wikipedia should have had a source added to it, but didn't. It now looks like the image was deleted. Majorly (talk) 13:32, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

User talk:Xiki rubi 89Edit


You left this user 33 warnings? :o Please, in the future, just give one "template" warning and manually write the other images below. It's like talk page spam and it makes people ignore the message if they see it too often like this... thanks, pfctdayelise (说什么?) 17:23, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

They were ignoring the original warnings anyway. Sorry, it's the automated process I use to tag the image - it does the talk page at the same time. Majorly (talk) 17:33, 4 June 2007 (UTC)


I am unsure why you say the copyright for this picture is unclear?

It is clearly tagged as being Flickr, the source URL is provided, and the CC licensing status can be verified there.

Is there some other problem I should know about?

I have reworded the summary and license part of the same, but am still unsure what the original problem was. Achitnis 15:07, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

It must have a licence. You've added an appropriate one, so should be fine. Majorly (talk) 15:14, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

According to your post, the Montespan picture has been deleted. Right. But Madame de Montespan died during the 17th century. I guess the painter died too. Can't we use documents whose author died 70 years ago? Gerrito 18:51, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Deleted flagEdit

Hi, you deleted File:Praha 13 flag.gif although I wrote explanation on my talksite and I gave you a link to licence template: According to the Czech Copyright Act, this image is in the public domain. (Law No. 121/2000, Article 3, Section a). Protection pursuant to this Act shall not apply to - a state symbol and symbol of a regional self-governing unit. Please restore the image as soon as possible, thank you. Mirekk 21:12, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

It had no license, so I can't really restore it. Majorly (talk) 03:24, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Maome.jpgEdit

It wasn't clear whether you had ruled on my speedy deletion request so I re-instated it. -Nard 11:05, 6 August 2007 (UTC)



  1. This is now redirect category
  2. This is very old comment (1,5 year before)
  3. This is commend about image (so shuldnt be here but in discussion of image/article)

So - this is very old comment in category redirect about old photo. Then why you dont delete this discussion ? --Pmgpmg 14:31, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

We normally keep old discussions for historical purposes. Majorly (talk) 15:15, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Majorly! You deleted this image that I uploaded from the romainian wikipedia, where it is marked as being in the public domain. I distingtly remember stating this at the talk-page for the image when questioned (at least I stated it at my talk page, when I recieved the question). I am sure that you have done things acording to the rules, but I wondered what I should have done in order for the image not to have been deleted? I.e I want to know what I did wrong, so that it will not happen again. Best wishes Micke 12:49, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi, you need to state the original source of the image (i.e. not Wikipedia) - that is, who created it, where it is from (website, self made, book etc...). Wikipedia is a secondary source so does not count :) Majorly (talk) 13:03, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! Now I know what to do next time, cheers! Micke 14:32, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

"Self-made" picturesEdit

The statement "self-made" is automatically written when the uploader choses the option "It is entirely my own work" and many people, believe me, simply LIE. If the picture is a thumbnail and shows a famous person the attention with the source must be doubled. We cannot simply believe that all pictures with "self made" are really "self made". As I said, when the image pictures famous people, in most of cases, the fans lie, because they just want, in any way, to have a picture of their preferred singer/actor/model in a Wikipedia article.

You reverted me two times in Image:Robertasaperfil.JPG, in a naïf belief of good faith. Well, just look this picture's history: Image:Tam1.JPG, that has been previously uploaded by the same user. Take a look at the source. The user saw his picture excluded because it was a copyvio. What does he do after it? Upload the same picture and states the work is self made. Unfortunately there's some administrators that believe him. Dantadd 16:02, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

I'll be more careful next time. I am generally wary of "self made" images, and users making it up, but to me the image is rather large, and I honestly thought it was genuine. I'll delete it. Majorly (talk) 17:29, 11 August 2007 (UTC)


Hello, why did you delete my picture Citalopram_numbered.png, and why did you comment it “incorrect”? Has there been any deletion request? And, besides, I don't think it was incorrect.

Markus Prokott 22:11, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi, you should probably speak to User:Hoffmeier, who tagged it so. Majorly (talk) 07:33, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
I'm currently talking with him on my talk page. But, nevertheless, incorrectness is no reason for a speedy deletion, but for a regular deletion request. So you were not to delete it anyway. Incorrectness is a case of bad quality and requires a regular deletion or replacement request!
I will, however, give you additional reasons to undelete it just because the labeling as incorrect was invalid: You can compare the following sources for either the correct structure and the correct numbering of the structure I uploaded here.
The discussion between me an Hoffmeier is about, whether it is good oder bad, nice or not so nice, helpful or disturbing to put a numbering of a main chain of a structure into the picture, even if it is completely correct with respect to the IUPAC or any other official nomenclature. The main reason for this dispute is, that most times there are more than one correct variant of a structure's numbering. There is no dispute about the correctness of my picture, but about the correct use of it. I don't understand why he tagged it for speedy deletion, I can only think he hasn't followed the guidelines for speedy deletion.
So, independently from the ongoing discussion between me and Hoffmeier, I ask you to undelete the picture meanwhile. I had much work to search for all the correct categories for the picture and would not like this efforts to be senseless. If Hoffmeier will still want to have the picture deleted, he may place a regular deletion request here and let everybody see his arguments.
Markus Prokott 19:27, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
Fair enough. Undeleted. Majorly (talk) 23:43, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much. :-) —Markus Prokott 15:46, 12 September 2007 (UTC)


CheckUsage: Flag_of_the_European_Union.svg says that it is used on 372 pages in 10 projects. I have therefore undeleted it (and deleted quite a few unnecessary CommonsTicker messages).

Removing my speedy tagsEdit

Hi Majorly; I was just curious if there was a reason as to why you removed my speedydelete tags on several images which have been lacking sources for more than a week. These are similar to several other images already deleted (and to several I haven't tagged yet) that have been here for months without sourcing. There are multiple claims that these images are not what they are tagged as, and without sources we can't even be sure that they are not copyrighted in some cases. Komdori 14:07, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

The images were in unknown categories, and do not fall under the speedy criteria. 1 week isn't the limit, Majorly (talk) 14:09, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
I apologize for my ignorance. What is the limit? I was adding the speedy tag per the template that says, "Unless the source is given, the file can be speedily deleted seven days after this template was added and the uploader was notified." Komdori 14:28, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
Well you aren't actually incorrect ... :P But what happens is, the unknown backlog is massive, often about a month, and although it would be great to delete them after a week, that just doesn't happen. Singling out those images therefore isn't really the way to do it - unless of course they are blatant copyvios. If they are, then they shouldn't be in the unknown category. Majorly (talk) 14:36, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. One thing that I'm wondering about now, though, is what the procedure is--they were never in the unknown category until I added the nsd template. That template itself put them in the categories. So is the idea that when we add an nsd template, it inserts them into unknown categories, and we wait for the backlog in unknown to clear before speedying? Otherwise I'd try to find a template that didn't insert them into unknown when I stumble across such images (I don't want to make the backlog even worse than it is). Komdori 14:42, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
If you tag them with {{speedy|reason here}} if you know they are blatantly unsuitable, then that's fine. Otherwise, whether it's a month or a week, there's little difference in the long run. Majorly (talk) 15:14, 23 September 2007 (UTC)


Thank you for the warm welcome :). I have a question, though, is MediaWiki:Quickimagedelete.js to assist deletion, or can it also be useful non-admins such as myself? Maximr 20:45, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Scale modelEdit

It's hard to take good pictures. Why you deleted my picture about the stadium of FC Barcelona??? (on FCBarcelona museum, opened to everybody)

There are hundreds of scale models: Category:Architectural models

Hello, what image is this? Majorly (talk) 16:37, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
hi, Image:Camp Nou - Maqueta (Norman Foster)

Try Image:Camp Nou - Maqueta (Norman Foster).jpg. EVula // talk // // 18:13, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
Ah thanks EVula :P Well, just because other images exist does not mean they should necessarily. Did you have permission from Norman Foster to photograph it? Majorly (talk) 18:50, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
But we are talking about the new soccer stadium of FCBarcelona, not a private creation. Everybody can see it and take photos without conditions.
Mutari 20:10, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
It still counts as a derivative image, unfortunately. Majorly (talk) 20:57, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

derivate..omg, like ASIMO?? why you didn't delete a 'private model instead a public and free model like mine? Category:Torre Agbar??? what's teh difference between a tower and a stadium? and what's the difference between a scale model of Camp Nou introduced in a public show and ASIMO introduced in a public show too? Mutari 11:42, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I asked on the Commons IRC channel about it, and those who I spoke to agreed with me. However, I'll undelete it, and let someone else make the decision. Regards, Majorly (talk) 11:53, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

About pictures deletedEdit

Hello Majorly,

I have seen that you delete 3 pictures on the page "Administration et administrateurs de la marine royale": 1/ one picture of duke of Richelieu 2/ idem of Michel Bégon 3/ idem of Gilles Hocquart

There is no copyright on these pictures. How can you explain your choice ? Thanks for help. jean-françois78

Image:Franz Fischer.jpgEdit

Hi Majorly why did you delete the Franz Fischer jpg????? I even sent a copy of the permission from the author of the picture to wiki via real mail. It had been opened to public use by the owner and I wrote so several times. Now it is missing in the article too and I would apreachiate it if you undid the delition. Thanks so far Kasiramis

There was nothing at all on the image to tell me this. It just showed me there was no source, so I correctly deleted it. Majorly (talk) 16:05, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
