A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
I would like to thank you and Odder for making a brave and righteous action at Fæ's AN thread. This shows that we shall not tolerate these kinds of users to prevent Commons from being used for fraudulent purposes. You and Odder deserve this barnstar. Poké95 01:17, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

DR error?Edit

Hi Michael. I hope you are well. Commons:Deletion_requests/File:St_Nicholas_chocolate.JPG references a different file in the Page Name than in the section header. The header references a file that has its own DR at Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Chocolate_Santa_Claus.jpg. I didn't want to change the header, since that is arguably substantially changing a week-old DR. Cheers, Storkk (talk) 09:38, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Storkk: I do recall there was some copy-paste problem, but I thought I'd sorted that out and I'm afraid I can't see the issue you're referring to. When I look at the page Commons:Deletion_requests/File:St_Nicholas_chocolate.JPG I see that it correctly references the file File:St_Nicholas_chocolate.JPG. Have I missed something, or could it be a caching issue perhaps? --MichaelMaggs (talk) 15:03, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Sealle took care of it. Cheers, Storkk (talk) 15:17, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Your Rainbow PanoramaEdit

I wonder if I could invite you to give your opinion on this FoP case. It affects quite a number of photos (including my own) of this popular tourist attraction. Thanks. -- Colin (talk) 18:37, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Could I ask another favour. The Italian photographer User:Moyanbrenn is particularly concerned about permission to photograph buildings, and has travelled to many countries where there could be issues. He's opened a DR at Commons:Deletion requests/undefinedmoyan brenn. One subject he mentioned to me might be a problem are my photos File:Vatican Museums Spiral Staircase 2012.jpg and File:Vatican Museums Spiral Staircase Looking Up 2012.jpg. Commons:Freedom of panorama#Italy says there is no FoP and perversely, cultural buildings are even more protected. The Vatican Museum website says photography is permitted only for personal use. So is is permitted? Hope you can help. -- Colin (talk) 17:30, 17 May 2017 (UTC)


  File:European-rabbits-1006621.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Arthur morrison.jpgEdit

Hi, Think what I have posted on this request is correct, and although I believe I am 100% positive, belief is not enough on WC. Would be grateful if you can cast your eyes over it. P.g.champion (talk) 14:15, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
