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)

I have scanned and uploaded railway pictures from 1996 slides. I dont know the precise date.

Picture of FistingEdit

You descided "keep" for this nomination for deletion in 2013. Meanwhile, the photo has been deleted from it's origin, Flickr, and so has, apparently, the photographer's gallery on Flickr. Would that make any difference in your opinion, e.g. concerning the depicted person's consent? I'm asking because we cannot identify nor contact the photographer nor the model anymore and there might have been a good reason to delete that stuff on Flickr? --Superbass (talk) 21:24, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Superbass, I confess I'm not sure. That DR was more based around the idea of the model being underage. If you feel it's problematic, start another DR. -mattbuck (Talk) 21:29, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of my photo of Edward S. Walker Jr.Edit

Hi. I personally made a photo of Edward S. Walker Jr. in September 2006, edited it and uploaded it to Wiki giving all the necessary permissions. Now I have noticed that you have deleted it and the whole article has since then been missing a photo. Why? What rationale did you have? Can you fix your screwup? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mixer (talk • contribs) 22:12, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Mixer. Hello and welcome back. I have never before been asked about a deletion that happened seven years ago, so there's something new! This is what I was able to work out from looking at the logs and the filepage:
The file was deleted as a copyright violation. It had a big notice "(c) Mikko Vedru" on it, and there was no evidence that that that was you. Furthermore, it was found on Picasa where it was listed as All Rights Reserved, which is not something we allow on Commons.
If this is in error I apologise, we have a policy here of erring on the side of caution and deleting anything which looks iffy, but this was pretty clear-cut. -mattbuck (Talk) 06:17, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
That was one of my first contributions to Wiki and I haven't been following what is happening to the article - I assumed, that quality at least won't degrade. Recently I decided to check my history and remind myself of things I did in the very beginning of wiki and how well/bad my edits survived a decade.
The photo was fully mine. My equipment, my photography, my edit. Obviously, the copyright is also mine. It stays with me from the moment I created this work (and can't be transferred), regardless of whom I grant part of those rights (even if they are full exclusive material rights till the end of times). Picasa was my personal archive and I don't remember setting anything specific there (but then again it was 10 years ago). Maybe I didn't want people to take all photos from my personal gallery, but was totally fine with people using specific photos I granted wikipedia all needed rights. There also might have been an idea of "Wikipedia and people can use my photo however they want as long as I get the source attribution.
Can you undelete the photo? I don't seem to have an unedited version anymore.
Please also tell me what (if anything) I did wrong in that situation back then? How and what I should have done instead? How have the rules changed since then (e.g. I can't put my name on the photo anymore?)? What do I need to know for this not to happen again? -Mixer (talk) 12:47, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
Mixer, there haven't been any changes to the way we handle such things in the past seven years. We generally frown on people adding watermarks to images as it reduces their usefulness. Images with watermarks are liable to be cropped to remove the watermark, or, if cropping is not possible due to positioning, just plain deleted. In this particular case, there was nothing to confirm that the uploader was Mikko Vedru, and when the same image was found elsewhere under a different licence it was assumed that the uploader here had simply copied it from Picasa and uploaded it without permission. We get that a lot.
As for your Wikipedia edits, once the image was transferred to Commons from Wikipedia, it became an issue for Commons. We take copyright seriously here, and so it wouldn't matter if it was used on every single Wikipedia page - if we thought it was a copyright violation, we would delete it.
How to fix this now: I've restored the file File:Edward walker.jpg, but have added a 7-day countdown to getting sufficient permissions. You need to make clear that User:Mixer is the same person as Mikko Vedru. Create a userpage or something. -mattbuck (Talk) 13:50, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
I created a user page, put my name in both Commons and En-wiki, as well as edited the photo page. Could you please make sure that I did everything correctly? -Mixer (talk) 04:23, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
Mixer that looks ok to me. -mattbuck (Talk) 15:32, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. Have a nice day! -Mixer (talk) 17:12, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

About how images of bugreirosEdit

Hi! I spoke previously with the user Ronhjones about the images of bugreiros that were deleted, he told me to talk to you. In order to be contextualized, you can see the discussion there, but in summary, I affirm that there is no reason for the exclusion, since according to Brazilian laws, unknown author works are public domain, I posted the link there, in addition, even if it were not, it is very likely that 70 years have passed since the death of the author. Please, I ask you to reconsider the exclusion and sorry for bad english.

Class 73s mis-categorisedEdit

Hi Matt, among all those images uploaded last week there are a couple of hundred pictures of class 73s which have all be categorized as Category:British Rail Class 43. Do you have a quick way of moving them all to the correct category? Geof Sheppard (talk)

Hi Geof, I've moved all the images of 73s I could see (230ish in all) from Category:British Rail Class 43 to Category:British Rail Class 73. I used the Cat-a-lot tool - it's available from Preferences > Gadgets > Tools for Categories. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:28, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Photographs of sculptors and artworkEdit

On 5 Oct 2014 you nominated a photo for deletion citing copyright infringement. Under UK law, any photograph taken from a public place is not illegal and the copyright rays with the author of the work (photograph). In nominating a photo for deletion because it contained an artwork, it follows therefore that all photos of artworks globally on Wikimedia ought to be deleted also on the same reasoning because those artworks (sculptures) are all copyright of the sculptors and any images of those sculptures should therefore have consent of the sculptor to be photographed. Since this is not the policy of Wikipedia or Wikimedia, my image of a sculpture was illegally deleted cutting incorrect application of Wikimedia policy and therefore the file should be restored. The content of the image is not a breach of copyright unless that content is copied by another person for their profit. Ashattock (talk) 18:58, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Ashattock I'm afraid you're mistaken about the law there. If you take a photo of, say, the cover of a magazine, while in a public place in the UK, that's a copyright violation because that work is not permanently situated in a public place. With artworks, the rule is that "graphic works", such as paintings, retain the copyright of the original author, while 3D things such as sculptures and buildings are not copyrighted. A better explanation can be found at COM:FOP#United Kingdom. -mattbuck (Talk) 19:16, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

New sub-category, not quite rightEdit

Greetings, Mattbuck, I have created a new sub-category but it is not quite right.

It is: Category:British Rail Class 43s in London North East Railway livery Zath Ras (talk)

Zath Ras, the template you want is {{Tbyl}}. That said, those are not in LNER livery, it's still the VTEC livery, just with a new name on the side. -mattbuck (Talk) 12:13, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Church Bank, Bradford FOP advice, pleaseEdit

Hi Mattbuck, since you seem to know a lot about the subject of FOP, what do you think about uploading this photo to commons? I find the ornate door intriguing, but there is the recent addition of a two dimensional artwork. The new art has no real value without the surrounding old stones. Thanks for your time. --Judithcomm (talk) 16:37, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Judithcomm that looks fine to upload to me. I'd say the picture falls under COM:DM - the photo is still worthwhile without the artwork. A photo of the artwork alone would be a copyvio on FOP grounds however, assuming it's a mural and not graffiti. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:58, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your input. The painting is actually a work of art commissioned by a Bradford organisation. There are more works by the same artist throughout the area --Judithcomm (talk) 20:22, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Ukt templateEdit

Hi,

I was wondering if you could would be kind enough to update this excellent template which you created a few years ago (Template:ukt) to take into account a change in category naming. I am in the process of moving train interior categories from the "Train interiors of British Rail Class xxxs" to "British Rail Class xxx interiors" format, but unfortunately I do not know how to update your template correctly, and I don't want to ruin it.

Thanks

ElshadK (talk) 09:41, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Why are you doing this? And, given the template still references the old names, why the hell are you removing redirects? -mattbuck (Talk) 11:04, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
Hi, made sure I moved all the files before removing redirects. I am also going through all the relevant templates and checking to make sure there are no broken links. I did raise a discussion on the main category page but no one replied. The reason I moved them was because all current Class subcategories are in the form of “British Rail Class xxx by line, operator” etc. so I thought I interiors should also start in the same format to look neater. I’m sorry if this was too abrupt, but I wasn’t aware how long I should wait for discussion. ElshadK (talk) 11:12, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
ElshadK, yeah, no one will ever check the main category page because no one watches catgeory pages. I suggest you bring any future large-scale changes to en:WT:UKRAIL, which is as close to a decision making body as we get.
As well as modifying the UKT template, several others will have to be modified which make reference to interiors. {{Tint}} and {{Tocint}} or something. How far through have you got? Will you also be renaming such categories as Category:Train interiors of London Midland? -mattbuck (Talk) 14:28, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
Mattbuck, No, I won't be renaming the other categories such as interiors by operator. I only wanted to move the ones by class to neaten up the category pages for each class. So there will be no need to update the {{Tocint}} etc. Also, in the future, I will make sure to suggest any major changes in en:WT:UKRAIL. ElshadK (talk) 12:07, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
ElshadK I have modified {{Ukt}}. Are you intending to also do categories such as Category:Train interiors of British Rail Mk3 coaches? If so {{Ukc}} will also need modifications. -mattbuck (Talk) 19:53, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I will move the coach ones now. There's only a few of them. Thanks for your help. ElshadK (talk) 08:16, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Querying the file description of File:Cardiff Bay railway station MMB 07.jpgEdit

Hi Mattbuck! I was adding the captions to one of your photos and noticed that, while the file name, category, and photo itself suggest it is Cardiff Bay Railway Station, you labelled it as Cardiff Queen Street Railway Station in the description. I just wanted to check this. If the captions and structured data I have added are incorrect, please do feel free to remove them. Thanks! Bibeyjj (talk) 19:15, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

Bibeyjj, thanks for the heads up, I have corrected the description both here and on flickr. -mattbuck (Talk) 21:10, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
Bibeyjj, one thing with your captions, "railway station" should not generally be capitalised. enwp has a policy about naming them, but it generally works as (where X is what is written on the station name board):
  • X railway station for mainline or heritage stations, but not London Underground stations
  • X station for stations which are multi-modal, eg mainline+LU, LU+DLR, etc.
-mattbuck (Talk) 21:29, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
Mattbuck, thank you for this clarification. I will bear your advice in mind for future captions, and may well go back and update others as I can. Bibeyjj (talk) 08:18, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

File:St_Albans_City_stn_slow_tracks_look_north4.jpgEdit

KEEP - reuploaded it with a near-duplicate. For avoidance of doubt, unit 700048 is the train pictured. Thanks, Sunil060902 (talk) 11:15, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

File:Nude_blonde.jpgEdit

Hello. I wanted to discuss with you the image file File:Nude_blonde.jpg. I see that it is semi-protected by you, so I feel that my inquiry is more likely to get a response here, than the file's presently uncreated Talk page.

The uploader has had many pictures deleted as a result of the Flickr upload bot trawling images belonging to other people. Of those images, most have been deleted, some are nominated on the grounds of failing to prove permission (possible copyright violation). I wanted to ask you about the named image, as I have my personal doubts the uploader has permission. The source account and source location of the image file no longer exists, and using Google Images to search for this image only shows one porn site (www.cloudygirls.com), which isn't loading at this time due to 522 Error (connection timed out). Until more information is brought forward regarding ownership of said image, I don't feel I can personally nominate it for deletion, though I feel the grounds for keeping it are shaky at best.
DeNoel (talk) 08:08, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

DeNoel, the image is semi-protected due to repeated vandalism. The original uploader was Nordela, and they have plenty of images still around. I ran a TinEye search on it, and it doesn't show any older versions of the image on the web. We have proof that the image was on flickr under a free licence, so that's not an issue. You're welcome to DR it. -mattbuck (Talk) 12:55, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

File:Dad with daughter 3.jpgEdit

Deleted after DR. But no discussion, just a nominator who said it was OoS. You commented that it’s from a notable event: what event was that? Brianjd (talk) 05:02, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

@Brianjd: it was taken at Nudes-A-Poppin'. -mattbuck (Talk) 20:01, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

File:507033 at Port Sunlight station.jpgEdit

Do you realise that if you do not pipe a different sort value in a category, it sorts on the filename, which starts with the unit number you added to the category? In short, somewhat pointless. Rodhullandemu (talk) 20:04, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

Line categorisation queryEdit

Just wondering if British Rail Class 180 at Leeds Railway Station.jpg is meant to be in the Huddersfield line category. As its on a Hebden Bridge train, shouldn't it be in the Calder Valley cat, or is there something I'm not thinking of here? ~~ Alex Noble/1-2/TRB 15:37, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Alex Noble, quite possibly, I always get confused with lines around Leeds. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:57, 6 September 2020 (UTC)


Map of Norfolk railwaysEdit

There is an image of a map of Norfolk Railways used on your page User:Mattbuck/Railways/2018 March 11-20

It looks as if you may have created this map/image. May I have your permission under the CC license SA 4 to recreate the map and adapt it a bit for a not for profit activity ? The activity is the creation of a heritage trail in Dereham, Norfolk, UK and we want to place an interpretation panel at the Mid Norfolk heritage Railway Station and use this map to explain how it used to be connected to other Norfolk railway lines.

Many thanks Carolyn hello@aboutDereham.org

Carolyn, I assume you mean File:Norfolk-rly.png. This was not an image I created, it was created by Afterbrunel. However the image is licensed under CC-BY-SA-4.0 which allows you to use it in such a manner provided you attribute Afterbrunel and share the resultant image under a compatible licence. -mattbuck (Talk) 20:54, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
