Image helpEdit

Hi Majorly, As for the picture 1989-6-4-student.jpg, it is scanned from the book from Library of University of Illinois: Historical Record (Taipei, Research Center for China Mainland Issues, 1989). This book was compiled by Research Center for China Mainland Issues, but they printed the pictures without indicating the photographers. I am sure that the pictures in that book were not taken by that research center, but mostly taken by the students in the 1989 movement of Beijing. However, due to the massacre, the photographer may be put into prison or killed. Nobody dare to claim it is his picture due to the political pressure.

Most importantly, the photographer, who may be killed that time or put into prison, took that picture for the purpose of letting more people know the truth of that massacre and to reveal the lies of the government that nobody was killed in 1989. If you delete the picture just because you cannot confirm whose picture it is, then you miss the point of taking that picture. Civilized people know how to protect the copyright, but the communist government does not know how to protect the lives of people, including the lives of photographers.

In the spirit of this, I hope you do not delete that picture because I am sure nobody will claim who took those picture and nobody would like this precious picture to stay unknown and the lies made by the government, which claims there was no massacre, still prevades.

Please help me how to keep this picture.

Sincerely, Amphylite

What is the image's copyright status? Majorly (talk) 23:45, 8 January 2008 (UTC)


Pourquoi avoir supprimé l'image Logo_aix_les_bains.gif. Il s'agit du logo administratif de la commune d'Aix-les-Bains. C'est parfaitement légale de le mettre sur wikipédia. Mais si tu veux supprimer tous les logos des communes françaises dans ce cas voici une liste, mais franchement c'est n'importe quoi :

  • commune d'Aix-lesBains : Logo_aix_les_bains.gif (que tu as effacés)
  • Commune de Paris : Mairie De Paris copie.png
  • commune de Besançon : Logo Besançon.jpg
  • commune de Créteil : Logo Créteil.svg
  • commune de Grasse : Logograsse.jpg
  • commune de Livry-Gargan : Logo ville de Livry-Gargan.gif
  • commune de Vitré : Logo Vitré.jpg
  • commune de ...

"le site internet de la ville ainsi que toutes les brochures concernant cette station thermale" - n'est pas une source valide... Majorly (talk) 01:02, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Deleted imageEdit

Hi, Majorly:

1. You have deleted the image "Hugonmazzilli.jpg", in "Commons", that was used in "".

2. I understand your reasons, because the image was not accompanied with source information etc.

3. **But the image is taken by myself in 2005 approximately, and so, I have the user right of it.

4. I don't know how to insert these informations (n. 3, above), when I upload the image.

5. I'm sorry my bad english... :(

6. I have done a correction, I hope it works. If not, please, can you told me how to do this?



That's good now, thank you! Majorly (talk) 14:42, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

My name changeEdit

Hey there — just came along and saw my name change request had been archived and taken care of. After reading the all the uproar my request had made, I just wanted to thank you for finding the proof that I was the same person on Wikipedia, so that my account could be renamed. Thanks again! Diligent Terrier 20:33, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Hiya ca:Canal Haccourt-ViséEdit

I know that copyright is a serious issue and that deleting images is not a pleasant duty.

On 30th December someone wrote that the map on the site didn't have the good licence. On 2d of January I wrote a mail to permissions with the reference of the website where they say that the maps on the site are free for use by anybody, without copyright.

I didn't receive any answer, nor negative, nor positive from permissions. Whatever there decision be, it is useful to know the reasons. It would be interesting to me, in order to learn what images can be imported and what images must not be imported, as for my understanding, the authorisation given by the copyrightholders on their website was quite clear. 99% of the images i donate to Commons are my own work, so in that case there is no doubt, but good maps free of copyright are hard to find and I really try to be careful when I find an image somewhere else. --Flamenc 18:32, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Please state the name of the image, so I can investigate. Thanks! Majorly (talk) 18:46, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Carte7_office_promotion_des_voies_navigables.jpg The website and the authorisation information I gave is in French. Are you sure you know enough French to evaluate whether the image is conform the rules? Did you go to that web site to check? I will accept any fair decision, but I prefer some communication before as I have the feeling you did not read/understand the information that was available. With other controversial images I had discussions with the supervising volunteers and that makes it a lot more pleasant. Flamenc 23:09, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I didn't go to the website. All I saw was OTRS pending. Once the OTRS team have dealt with it, it can be undeleted. Regards, Majorly (talk) 23:54, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

surprising lack of clevernessEdit

why did you eliminate the map of the Cesar tactic in the Guerre des Gaules without asking a question

are you a bot : I'am a machine, I can't think ? too much for me ?

being an administrator should not prevent you to be polite and even more important to think.

thank you for reverting your decision.

Roucas in WP:fr-- 20:43, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

I have no idea what image you are talking about, and I don't know where I haven't been polite. Majorly (talk) 21:14, 9 January 2008 (UTC)


Hey Alex - thanks for your quick response to my, um, fanbase? lol :) Take care, ~ Riana 09:33, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Translation: "Could you tell me why you deleted my images from here?" Luckily enough I stumbled on your talk page :p RedCoat 15:24, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanks RedCoat! The images lacked sources of who created them. Majorly (talk) 15:28, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I've left the user a note explaining why they were deleted. RedCoat 16:09, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Majorly (talk) 16:17, 15 January 2008 (UTC)


Please undelete this image. I am the copyright owner of the original unwatermarked image that this was a derivative of. I gave a proper copyleft license to that derivative. The flickr image is a different derivative of the original that I stamped with a watermark.

  Done Apologies for any inconvenience. Majorly (talk) 14:09, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Undeletion requestEdit

Hi - on 4 Jan you deleted Category talk:Train stations in the United Kingdom as an orphan talk page [2]. Please could you restore this to Category talk:Railway stations in the United Kingdom, as this is where the category was moved to. Many thanks. – Tivedshambo (talk) 12:47, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

  Done Majorly (talk) 12:59, 17 January 2008 (UTC)


Can you please undelete 'Image:Kindrochit-Castle-03.jpg' - it's one of mine - I guess I didn't tag it correctly TheCreator 13:27, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

  Done Majorly (talk) 13:31, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
Thank you TheCreator 14:02, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I want that you explain to me: Why you deleted my files Rotunda_da_Paz.jpg and Rua_Moinho_do_Cuco.jpg da Wiki Commons? I think that you, be or not be a administrador you do not have the right of deleted my or another Wiki Commons or Wikipedia work!! There is a thing that her name is "Copyright" that I have, as photographer of refereed images and as creator of page refereed.

Respeitosly, cdmafra

Very Kind of You...Edit

Majorly, it was very kind of you to take the time to review the comments by Jayvdb and change your vote. Have a nice day! Take care, FloNight♥♥♥ 16:39, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

re. EhEdit

Not much. Disillusionment...mostly with EnWP I admit, but I think taking a full break would probably help. I'm kind of at a point where I'm not enjoying it (whatever that is) I'd rather not keep grinding just for the heck of it. And since I shouldn't really be checking here too much, email me if you want to talk or anything; my gmail is open. Cheers, giggy (:O) 04:44, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Your comment on Patstuart's RfAEdit

Majorly, I beg you to rephrase this, that comment is totally out of line and quite disrespectful towards other users. I'm asking pretty please. Patrícia msg 19:25, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

I removed it but stand by it. The comments being made are more ridiculous than on English Wikipedia - and that is where the worst kind are made. Majorly (talk) 20:47, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

deleted Image: "FeldPost 6 1945.png"Edit

Hello Majorly..... In November 2007 I had uploaded a picture of a world warII US leaflet Image: "FeldPost 6 1945.png" on the Wikimedia Commons. I was not sure whats the correct copyright status of this leaflet is. So I try it with the "U.S. government work" tag. I am the owner of this leaflet and had scanned is by my self. It is in my opinion an important historical document and it is incomprehensible to me why no experienced users can find a usable correction of the copyright tag. So I ask you for any idea to make this file "delete-resistant"? thank you for your help and excuse me of my bad English .... i grow up in the France-sector of berlin....;o)) Pilsom 21:56, 3 March 2008 (UTC) pilsom

There has never been any image with that name [3]. Majorly (talk) 21:57, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

for example in the german article about the ship Gustloff I find in the history this: (Feldpost_6_1945.png entfernt, wurde auf Commons von Majorly gelöscht. Grund: In category Unknown as of 10 November 2007 for more than 7 days, missing essential information)Pilsom 22:26, 3 March 2008 (UTC)pilsom

Ah ok, now that I have the exact image name we can continue :) The image is now restored. Thanks Majorly (talk) 23:09, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
Super! Thank you too for your help.... greetings.... Pilsom 11:45, 8 March 2008 (UTC)pilsom

Many ThanksEdit

Dear Majorly/Archives,
Thank you for supporting my Request for Adminship. I’m honored by your trust and will do my best to help build a better site. Durova 20:51, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Start small, close obvious deletion discussions. Get bolder with experience. Pretty soon Commons will have ten thousand images! (giggles, flees) ;)

Full protection of the Main PageEdit

Please see this. --Boricuæddie 14:55, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Image talk:Young Street Richmond Hill radail railway.gifEdit

Please restore this page, it had important talk on it linked elsewhere that has left one user confused. Thanks! Patstuart (talk) 17:40, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Restored. Majorly (talk) 18:50, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Protection/admin board etcEdit

I've now blocked a much larger range for a bit (& unprotected the board - which seems more important to me). It's a wiki - you know what to do if you don't agree. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 23:03, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

That seems fine. Majorly (talk) 23:04, 16 April 2008 (UTC)


Hey Majorly, I guess I'm missing something. You deleted my edit, saying it's not consistent, but when I look at, say Special:Contributions/Majorly, they're all uppercased expect "block". I'm guessing this text is used elsewhere where it isn't consistent. Trivial, I know, I'm just curious. Rocket000 14:01, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

It was inconsistent on my watchlist. Majorly (talk) 14:20, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Thank you for your vote on my RfA :) (I'm not a leaf ;) ) --Leafnode 17:50, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Your AN postEdit

If it's needed I'd throw my hat into the ring. Think it'd be a good idea? Durova 01:35, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Probably not - you've not been an admin for very long, which some people may oppose over. I'd support you with a little more time. Majorly (talk) 01:45, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Question at RfBEdit

A question for you at Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/Giggy (bureaucrat). I'm more than happy that you seem to have sorted out the difficulties that may have been between you and Giggy, I still would appreciate some clarification. Regards, Finn Rindahl 21:50, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Giggy's RfBEdit


I just wanted to say a huge thanks for your support in my RfB. It just closed, and I'm now a bureaucrat. If you ever want to discuss any of my actions, as a 'crat, admin, or plain old user, please don't hesitate to leave a note on my talk page.

And of course, a HUGE thanks for the nomination—I doubt I would have done so well (and I'm still surprised how well it went) without it. Cheers, giggy (:O) 10:36, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
