Hi Majorly, sorry to let you a post in the wrong place. I'm just new on this. The question again: The logo put at the TM-XML definition was removed from Commons by you giving as a reason in the history that it is unfree. The logo was created by us at OHIM (European Office for the Harmonization in the Internal Market) and haven't issued any copyright restriction, in fact the TM-XML is an open standard initiative that welcomes to everybody to use and participate on its development ... what or how should we do to have it rightly? I had a look at the wikipedia logo guidelines definition and didn't see what to do. Thanks! Antonio Grau 15:25, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

What was the image file? (e.g. Foo.jpg) Majorly (talk) 14:07, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
The image file was TM-XML_Logo.png angrau 9:44, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Hi, there was no permission listed. We need explicit permission from OHIM to confirm that that the image is freely released. Please see Commons:OTRS, and email permissions-commons [at] from the company email address. Thank you. Majorly (talk) 13:52, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. angrau 19:55, 27 October 2007 (UTC)


Imagine a sphere. Draw on it a small circle. Now draw a great circle through the center of the small circle and erase the part of the great circle inside the small circle. How is the preceding enough to allegedly infringe copyright? I would have thought that the elements as described would have fallen under {{PD-shape}}, just as the first subdivision of a Sierpinski triangle does. --Damian Yerrick () 03:10, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, undeleted. Majorly (talk) 17:23, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch. --Damian Yerrick () 19:10, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Image:DotA 6.49 Game in progress2.jpgEdit

Good morning, are you joking about deleting Image:DotA 6.49 Game in progress2.jpg ? Do you mean it really ? It is a screenshot, on the screenshot is name of the host, there are 3 screenshots and every screenshot have same host, it appears from this that host is author of all screenshots. Host am I, i cant understand why are you doing this work about deleting and posting reasons and other things about that, if autor is perspicuous, of course that screenshots are free - noncopyrighted.

No, I'm not joking. Even if it was of free software, no one could have known as there was no information to tell me. Feel free to reupload accordingly with the essential information required. Thank you. Majorly (talk) 22:53, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Image:Wendi deng murdoch news corp wife rupert murdoch christopher peterson.jpgEdit

Hi. This image is a copy of en:Image:Wendi deng murdoch christopher peterson.jpg, released by en:User:Christopherpeterson under a {{Cc-by-3.0}} license. Christopher Peterson also maintains the http://www.christopherpeterson website linked to as the image source. Although on that website he lists this image under a {{Cc-by-nc-3.0}} license, it is still well within his right to release that same image under a less restrictive license at the English Wikipedia and, by extension, the commons. The discrepancy between licensing is easily explained by the fact that Peterson is a commercial photographer, and may not be inclined to announce on his website that he offers images under a free commercial use license on Wikipedia. Despite this, I think there's a clear basis for keeping the image, and I would like to urge you to reconsider your deletion. ˉanetode╦╩ 23:02, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

The image is not freely released, and said so on the image. Majorly (talk) 09:36, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
Um, yes, yes it is. See en:Image:Wendi deng murdoch christopher peterson.jpg. ˉanetode╦╩ 17:05, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
Fine. Majorly (talk) 22:09, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Va pensieroEdit

Good morning Majorly ! File:Verdi Va,pensiero.png has been deleted. It was essential for the french page on Verdi (>Milan>Nabucco). What is necessary to do for have it again ? I don't speak english well, I don't practice well on Commons : thank you for your help ! Best regards   Alter Mandarine 10:27, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi, vous avez besoin le auteur, date, et endroit. Merci, Majorly (talk) 22:14, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
Ah, et permis :) Majorly (talk) 22:17, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
And where are these informations ? The person who puted the image on commons knows them, no ? But his user name was whith the image witch has been deleted, no ? The only thing I see now is the red link File:Verdi Va,pensiero.png. Can you do something ? Thank you.   Alter Mandarine
Don't worry : we have a new image (thanks to hautbois). But I didn't understand what is necessary for avoid the previous situation : I write a text, I illustrate it with an image from commons, and months and months later : pfftt ... no more image ! ! ! I haven't a crystal ball for guess that an image will be suppress ! Kink regards !   Alter Mandarine 11:05, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Why delete Image:Kd_State_Dinner_1950.JPG and Image:KD_Lobby_1930's.JPG Pictures are hung at an exhibition at the King David Hotel. PD according to Israeli Law. (all pictures taken in Israel before 1956 are PD. Deror avi 18:03, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

I want my images backEdit

Hi Majorly, I have not checked my pages related to Modern Sculpture recently. To-day I noticed that images from Niki de Saint Phalle sculptures where deleted by CommonsDeLinker on September 25, 2007(I suppose on your request):

  • Image:Saint_phalle_hannover1.JPG
  • Image:Hannover_nanas1.jpg
  • Image:Saint_phalle_hannover2.JPG

Can you please explain me why these images, which are obviously taken in Germany, are copyright violations. You should have read this line on the Niki de Saint Phalle page/article before you took this drastic action: "Pictures taken in several countries (at least taken in Germany and Switzerland) are ok by freedom of panorama. Please check before deletion" I believe you also deleted the Zurich (Switzerland) image. Why, oh why??? Sorry for my late reaction. Greetings--Gerardus 11:37, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Majorly, can I please hear something, anything from you--Gerardus 15:19, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
Sorry, I missed your message. Undeleted them, Majorly (talk) 19:01, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
Majorly, thanks a lot. But can you reopen Category:Nana by Niki de Saint Phalle as well?--Gerardus 07:30, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Majorly, I found 2 out of 3 images mentioned above, but not: Saint-phalle_hannover1.JPG. I also checked the nl-wikipedia pages and miss image:Niki_de_Saint-Phalle_Nana_on_Dolfin,_Den_Haag_juni_2003.JPG (Netherlands also f.o.p.). From the Swiss image in Zurich I even don't know the filename. What a mess. Admin:Siebrand gave me some hints how to do the Delinking, but honestly I don't understand a word. Help me. Greetings--Gerardus 10:52, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
I missed Saint-phalle_hannover1.JPG, that's restored now. There has never been an image called Niki_de_Saint-Phalle_Nana_on_Dolfin,_Den_Haag_juni_2003.JPG on Commons, so I don't know how I can help :( Majorly (talk) 18:31, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Majorly, with your and admin:Siebrand's help most of the images are back on their places. With you I wonder what happened to "Nana on Dolfin". You can find on nl:wikipedia Article:Niki de Saint Phalle : History 25 sep 2007: the line notifying the Users that this image is deleted with CommonsDelinker on your request. May be this information is of any use in our search for this image. Greetings--Gerardus 09:14, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Iraq streetfight.jpgEdit

This image was deleted because it was orphaned. I'd like to use it for en:Iraqi insurgency. Could be you so kind and undelete it? If you want to reach me do so at en:User talk:Victor falk. Thank you--Victor falk 04:21, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

The image was a copyvio, and so I cannot restore it. Majorly (talk) 18:27, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Empty image pagesEdit

Hi. A few days ago you deleted a bunch of "empty image pages" ie. image pages where the image doesn't exist but the page still has content. All the /overlay.kml subpages were used by Commons:Geocoding/Overlay and the images that link to those pages. I undeleted them now, but is there anything that could be done to prevent this in the future? Looking at your deletion log, a couple of other subpages seem to have been deleted as well. Please share your thoughts on Commons talk:Geocoding#Geocoding of Maps as an overlay. --Para 12:53, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Feel free to undelete all the subpages. I'll ensure they aren't on the list next time. Majorly (talk) 13:42, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Roman Czyborra.jpgEdit

I had restored the image because the reasoning for deleting it was not given. The user had been present at German meet-up(s ?) in the past and clearly gives his identity, so the reasoning for deleting (possibly underaged) was not given. I therefore restored the image that had been used in the German Wikipedia'a article Mann, see here. I restored the image, even knowing that the user has been banned indef. in the German Wikipedia, at that time I did not know about the block at en.wikipedia, though. I don't know whether blocks should be carried on from other wikipedias to Commons, e.g. User:Mutter Erde has done some good contributions here but is blocked indefinit at de.wikipedia. --Matt314 20:54, 6 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for showing me where to get the script. I would talk to you about this on msn, but I am kinda "out" for a few days. Could you tell me how the script works? --[[Anonymous Dissident]] 06:59, 9 November 2007 (UTC)


...for withdrawing your b'crat request. I have no doubt that you would have used the tools well, and admire your wisdom in reading where the consensus would have gone (another sign of a good 'crat). If we find ourselves in a situation where too many of our 'crats are MIA, I hope you'll make yourself available when the need is great. --SB_Johnny | PA! 19:41, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

I really think Commons could do with another crat. I only withdrew because it was brought up I don't interact with the community and processes enough - which is true, I don't. I think another, more experienced user should put themselves forward - or let me nominate them, as Commons could do with another. Thanks for your confidence in me as well, it's much appreciated. Majorly (talk) 19:53, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Three imagesEdit

Is there a way you can undelete:

So I can take a look at them? I didn't realize they had been tagged until after they had been deleted. Evrik 20:42, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

OK. Majorly (talk) 21:02, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Hola Majorly!!Edit

Me presento, soy Maica creadora del artículo de Tahis en wikipedia y me gustaría saber si eres tan amable.. porque has borrado las fotos de Tahis en wikimedia commons?

Espero tu respuesta, gracias y saludos --Maica padilla 23:33, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Ultra PRT.jpgEdit

Why you think that description is satisfactory? I see copyright at the original source. ~ putnik 13:45, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

My mistake. Majorly (talk) 14:08, 22 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi, could you please tell me, which information was missing for this image? It is higly important, and I would hate to lose it because of something, that could be helped. --h-stt !? 19:32, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi, it's missing a source. Who created it, when was it created, where was it taken from (book, website, scan...). If you need it, I'll undelete the image. Cheers, Majorly (talk) 19:56, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Oups - could you restore it for - say 48 hours - and I try to check this out? Greetings. --h-stt !? 07:48, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Done then. Majorly (talk) 13:18, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
I notified the uploader by e-mail and in his home-WP. Let's see if he can provide a valid source. Thanks for your help. --h-stt !? 17:40, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Cecil already deleted it again - and rightly so, as the uploader told me, that it was a copyvio from the times, when he didn't understand copyright well enough. Thanks again for your help and have a nice weekend. --h-stt !? 08:55, 24 November 2007 (UTC)


My name is Maica, I' ve done an article this singer called Tahis and yes i speak and write english but little, I'm sorry jiiii.. well friend my question was why have you deleted the images of article "tahis" en wikipedia? and here in wikimedia...

Hi Majorly,

I've returned the Image:Panopticon.jpg, and added information. Maybe the older version you removed was of a better quality. Could you please return it if it was? Thanks. - .Aiko 20:27, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

--Maica padilla 21:57, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

The image was deleted by User:Cecil, not me. Sorry. Majorly (talk) 22:43, 22 November 2007 (UTC)



I am new to W.Commons, but just wanted to inform that the image "Image:Madrid-MetroLinea10.PNG" has been removed by you. This image is the pictogram for Line 10 of Madrid Metro. It seems that there are some required data missing, but the data could be taken from any of the other images belonging to the same serie (changing the number from 1 to 12) because all other eleven are still into Commons and were not deleted, so I guess they must fulfil the requirements. I am not the author of the image but I have participated in some of the pages where this image is supposed to appear. I would like to ask you if you could undelete the image and taking the missing data from "Image:Madrid-MetroLinea11.PNG", for instance.

Many thanks in advance. --Torrales 15:13, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I've restored the image. Please add the data to it yourself. Many thanks, Majorly (talk) 16:03, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Sauniere jpg removedEdit

Hi, Why was Sauniere jpg removed from here?

Please reply to Talk Page:wfgh66

Sierra Sam PicturesEdit

Hello. I am User:Nerdi from the german wikipedia.

I just noticed that some pictures concerning "sierra sam", the first crashtest dummy ever, were deleted because of lack of license information, permission etc.

my commons talkpage lists some of the images, but i don't know it that's all there are/were about that topic.

I asked the image-uploader in the english wikipedia, User:Denni, to clear the license status (here). He answered "I contacted Dr Gary Enever, the author of the article, for permission to use the images. He gave me full permission to use them in any manner I saw fit. I think a gfdl tag would be appropriate, if that's what you want to do. Denni 17:39, 24. Mär 2006 (CET)" (here).

This means there should be a permission to publish the images in the wikipedia, they were according to user:denni in fact emitted to the public domain by their author Dr. G. Enever.

I hope this fits for a rehabilitation of the images? If you wish to answer, please do so here.

Tank you, User:Nerdi (de.wp.) Nerdi 17:15, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Hola Majorly, soy el usuario Braian 393 y supe que habias borrado un archivo que yo habia subido a commons para un articulo en Wikipedia. quisiera saber porque borraste esa imagen? the preceding unsigned comment was added by Braian 393 (talk • contribs)

Translation: Hello, Majorly, I'm user Braian 393, and I know you have deleted the file I uploaded to Commons for an article at Wikipedia. I would like to know why you deleted it. --Boricuæddie 03:02, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
I don't know which image you speak of, sorry. Majorly (talk) 18:35, 30 December 2007 (UTC)


This image was deleted from the Commons after you found it was missing essential information. I may be able to provide that information, but I don't know what it was, because I can't see the image or image description.

The picture is of Israeli poet Natan Alterman (1910 - 1970). It was taken about 1952, and is therefore in the public domain according to Israeli copyright law. It is in the possession of the Kfar Saba Municipal Museum.

The picture was used in the Wikipedia articles on Alterman, and in the article Music of Israel. I was unaware that it was a candidate for deletion, otherwise I would have stepped forward right away.

Is there a chance of getting it back? Tnx, --Ravpapa 08:04, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

It seems to be back. Regards, Majorly (talk) 18:36, 30 December 2007 (UTC)


Hi Majorly, can you tell me what was missing with image laranjada.jpg?

Permission. It didn't look "self made" to me. Majorly (talk) 18:37, 30 December 2007 (UTC)


Hi Majorly, I created the Lazarus screenshot image. It only shows open source software, so there is nothing wrong with the image. I didn't understand the reason on the log (what is copyvio suppose to mean?). Please revert the deletion and tell me what is missing on the image so I can fix it and we have the image restaured. I don't know where the original is, so please undelete.

So how should one illustrate free software for the Microsoft Windows platform that runs in a window, not in the full screen? Must one install ReactOS? --Damian Yerrick () 22:31, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Based on Commons:Licensing#Screenshots, I guess so. Please express your views in Commons:Deletion requests/Windows screenshots --Damian Yerrick () 23:18, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:Retrato de Carlos Pellicer por Alfonso Ayala para el frontispicio de Con palabras y fuego 1962.jpgEdit

I don't agree with your action [4]. The image states clearly : "Retrato de Carlos Pellicer, por Alfonso Ayala, para el frontispicio de la Editio Princeps de Con palabras y fuego, 1962." that means the drawing was made by Alfonso Ayala for a book. I don't see any permission from Alfonso Ayala that allows us to have a photo of his work in commons, please delete the image as the author of the photo & uploader has failed to show the permission of the author. --Ecelan 19:43, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
