FlickrEdit

Yes, you are right. Those photos were taken by Noele, not by Jack himself: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jackdorsey/188883635/

Dear Mattbuck,

Feel free to delete all those images. I've already removed them from all the Wikipedia articles.

Uploads on Meena Kumari's Wikipedia PageEdit

Dear Mattbuck, From the past many days I have been trying to upload several pictures in various Wikipedia pages but somehow I'm facing copyright issues on my uploads. I just wanted to know, how can I 'create' pictures of people (such as Meena Kumari) who have died several years ago? I feel its quite obvious that I'll fetch their pictures either from print media or electronic media. So how should I upload more pictures without any copyright violation? Vrishchik (talk) 16:46, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Vrishchik, you should start by reading Commons:Licensing - this has a good overview. Put simply, if the photo is not one you took yourself, then it either needs to be so old that it has fallen into the public domain (this usually happens 70 years after the death of the photographer) or it needs to be explicitly released under a free licence. This means that images you find in books or online are almost certainly not acceptable. If you want to use these images for a Wikipedia article, and the subject is dead, you may be able to upload images to that Wikipedia as "fair use", however not all Wikipedias allow fair use (for instance English Wikipedia does but German Wikipedia doesn't). Fair use images are not allowed on Commons. -mattbuck (Talk) 00:16, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you Mattbuck, firstly I'll thoroughly go through Commons:Licensing before uploading anything. Thank you for your guidance.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Vrishchik (talk • contribs) 17:04, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

1996 scansEdit

I have scanned and uploaded railway pictures from 1996 slides. I dont know the precise date. See Category:1996 in rail transport in London and Category:1996 in rail transport in the United Kingdom (Brigthon and Ashford). There are also some 1996 Eurostars (problem I cant separate the English, French and Belgian Eurostar subcategories) Could you help to catogorise?Smiley.toerist (talk) 11:29, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, I moved from the high speed line categories as high Speed 1 was only opened from 2003.Smiley.toerist (talk) 22:52, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
@Smiley.toerist: fair point, I've moved them to South Eastern Main Line as the Chatham Main doesn't go via Ashford. -mattbuck (Talk) 00:36, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
