Whose house is it?Edit

It is interesting what you said about two images Mary Arden's House. They are both images I found on flickr labeled Mary Arden's House. If your are correct, then the image would need renaming. Snowmanradio 16:58, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Watermark removed from Yuyuan.jpgEdit

Hi, I have removed the watermark from the image and uploaded a new version without the watermark I am quite new so I am not sure that I've done the right procedure. Please let me know if anything else needed to be done. Thank you.Tinbin (talk) 10:44, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Copyright questionEdit

Hello! As you seem proficient in UK copyrights, I have got a question. I obtained a copy of "Luftwaffe: The Allied Intelligence Files" by Christopher Staerck and Paul Sinnott (ISBN 978-1574883879). They used only photos from the PRO, taken during the Second World War by UK planes (reconnaissance photos, gun camera shots), which were collected by the Air Ministry. Almost all photos are quoted with their Air Ministry registration. Would this then be Crown Copyright? Cheers. Cobatfor 19:10 15 Oct 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, MilborneOne!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Provided evidence of permission by providing a link to a site with an explicit grant of permission that complies with the licensing policy : see Shiv Aroor said...

   anon@1.13am: You are welcome to pick up any of the photos here that I own the copyright to. I cannot speak for photos that I have picked up myself with due attribution to the respective copyright holder. But regarding any of the photos taken by me, or if I mention that the copyright is mine or LiveFist's, then you're most welcome to use them on Wikipedia.

MilborneOne any further question.

It really needs an email into the OTRS system as you're most welcome to use them on Wikipedia. images need to be useable by anybodyi and in my opinion not an acceptable release - no mention of Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike. MilborneOne (talk) 22:38, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Re: Aircraft by RegistrationEdit

Hmm, you could discuss at the Village Pump, but the general rule is to only add images to appropriate subcategories. It is generally discouraged to add images to both subcategories and parent categories, since this duplicates effort and in some ways makes it harder to find images. Especially in situations like this, the 'by type' categories (such as "Airbus A320") will all yield the same aircraft look, but perhaps in different liveries; the 'by carrier' categories will all have similar liveries, but different types of aircraft. I know where you are coming from in your complaint, but I just don't think it is such a big deal as to start muddying up the categorisation system. In any case, I'd appreciate if you let me know how this situation develops. Let me add that I don't really care which method is ultimately used (though I admit I somewhat prefer the more minimalist approach), I'm just following the standard categorisation method here. Cheers! Huntster (t @ c) 00:49, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Please Don't Delete..Edit

Hi, please don't delete the following image that you tag in commons. All of the image that you tag were given me a permission by the owner mostly member of\forum(which I am also a member),and because I am not aware of the OTRS before.. They only sent me a personal message granting me to use their image in my inbox in the forum not in email. I have already send them an email request last June 2 before you tag those image. So I am waiting for the email with OTRS template from the respective owner. Also the File:PAF S211 2.jpg is not a copyright violation it is from my account in friendster but i can't remember the email and its password because it was way back 2007 when I last use the fs account. I don't have also the original copy of the image because my PC was corrupted and I formatted it in the same year. I also want to tell you that the image in flickr: is a real copyright violation, I don't know if he copy it from my fs account. Hope you'll understand.Your consideration will be appreciated. Thanks

European Air GroupEdit

Hello, you proposed the pictures that I added on WIKIMEDIA COMMOMONS for deletion. I object, because they are owned and taken by the organisation for which I work (being the European Air Group). Some of the pictures also appear on our website, of which my organisation also owes the rights. The pictures are all uploaded in a Wikipedia article on the European Air Group. The main purpose these pictures were taken , was to put them on our website. Later we (the EAG) decided to use them for an article in Wikipedia. Keesbleijerveld (talk) 12:18, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

You need to send the permission to use the images into the OTRS system, working for an organisation doesnt give you the right just to copy images and uload them here particularly when you declared them as your own work. If you have other images that you have declared as your own work then you should really remove that claim. The only images that you can upload as your own are those that you have took yourself and hold the copyright any others need the permission from the copyright holder. Thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 13:05, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

OTRS?? Keesbleijerveld (talk) 15:51, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry OTRS is the system used to log and deal with external emails which deal with permissions from copyright holders, refer OTRS. MilborneOne (talk) 22:37, 16 December 2010 (UTC)


Hi, are you sure about en:Avro Vulcan XH558's civil registration? It's article states G-VLCN. Perhaps you knows better since you've seen her, so I don't want to correct it in the description of File:XH558-AvroVulcan-1379.JPG, where you (or someone else) stated it to G-VULC (which is stated for en:Avro Vulcan XM655 in the articles). – I always admired these beatiful planes, though I am from Hungary. If you would reply, would you mind to do it on my Hungarian talk page? (I seldom check the Commons talk page.) - Er... and Happy New Year! --HoremWeb Place of Auditions 21:06, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry my error it is G-VLCN - I have corrected the caption on the image, thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 23:06, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for the quick action! I wasn't sure enough to correct it by myself. --HoremWeb Place of Auditions 14:21, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Camcopter pictureEdit

Hi and hello from a first time WIki user - apologies if I'm getting some of this Wiki thing wrong - I`m not really a techno-phobe, honest! I was just looking at your Camcopter picture. Any chance you can email me about it? Many thanks. Aviator 738 (talk) 14:40, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

File:Russian Sukhoi Su-25.jpgEdit


You placed this file in Category:1992 Farnborough Airshow; the flickr uploader that is the photographer of this image stated that this photo was taken "at Farnborough 1989". Was the flickr uploader wrong with his statement? Thanks. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 10:55, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for checking High Contrast, the image has an embeded date 12 . 9 . 92 and a web search should confirm that the Su-25 "10" was on show in 1992, for example MilborneOne (talk) 18:47, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

KC-30 VoyagerEdit

Hi MilborneOne. Just for your interest: While I have no objection against the new category name for files like this one, the RAF calls them KC-30's on their website, see RAF Brize Norton - KC-30 Voyager. Cheers LittleWink (talk) 16:38, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Understood but I am afraid it is wrong as the rest of the RAF and AirTanker does not use the title it was a designation of the Australian aircraft but has not been used since the RAF aircraft were named (also the KC-30 has a boom the Voyager does not). If you have a look at they only use the Voyager name and they own and operate the aircraft rather than the RAF. MilborneOne (talk) 19:11, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Usage of boing 787 dreamliner pictureEdit

Good afternoon

I´m Julio Romero from the SCI - Sociedad Colombiana de Ingenieros (Colombian society of engineers), I´m leaving you this message to ask you if it´s possible that we could use your picture of the boing 787 dreamliner in our magazine "Anales de Ingeniería", it would be very helpful, certainly we will attribute your work. Thank you very much for your time, i´ll be waiting for your response. --Jromerogalofre (talk) 22:13, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for asking Julio, you are welcome to use my images as long you attribute me as the source, thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 11:54, 14 May 2014 (UTC)


A reader contacted Wikimedia to report that the waterfowl in: File:Bentley-wildfowl2.jpg are magpie geese, common in northern australia.

This seems plausible, see:


If you agree, I would be happy to correct the image title and the description, uness you want to do it. The image came up because it is used in:

so we would want to make sure to add a caption there.--Sphilbrick (talk) 15:09, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for that, I have added it to the caption and in the article. MilborneOne (talk) 10:18, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
