Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by ZenwortEdit

I came across that DR and I noticed that you decided to keep the files although the uploader recognised that it was a mistake from his part as the work is located indoors. Could you recheck this? Kind regards, -sasha- (talk) 08:24, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[]

-sasha- - Somehow I misread this one. Thanks. Missvain (talk) 14:49, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Deitsches Schproch-Gebiet.PNG DeletionEdit

Hello, could I request that the Commons:Deletion requests/File:Deitsches Schproch-Gebiet.PNG is closed and the map [1] deleted — this is yet another version of the deleted Postmann Michael map, this should be the last one of them. Again, apologies, for another follow up related to these maps. --E-960 (talk) 13:47, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[]

File:2014-12-07 SM City Batangas 017.jpgEdit

From a DR watcher: Hello MissVain! Is the mentioned file supposed to be deleted via Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:SM City Batangas or not? Or was it due to accidental oversight? Thanks in advance. JWilz12345 (Talk|Contrib's.) 12:18, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[]

JWilz12345 - Oversight. Sometimes my clicking misses one or two. Thanks. Fixed. Missvain (talk) 16:04, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Kept "Copy vio"? Please review your decision.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 00:24, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[]

User:Jeff G. - That's what I get for doing DR before my first cup of tea. LOL. Thanks!! Fixed. Missvain (talk) 03:05, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[]
However, you could give a clearer closing remark. Now you "per nomination" refers to "Because it is Nonsense". When the nominator doesn't give a comprehensible reason, stating one when closing would be very nice. The deletion may have been clear in the context of the file description, but that description is now unavailable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by LPfi (talk • contribs) 05:50, 5 August 2021‎ (UTC)[]

Hi there. That's actually not how it works. Please nominate the file for deletion via Commons:DR and let the community discuss. Cheers. Missvain (talk) 17:01, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Erena JamesEdit

Would you mind deleting this photo again? It appears to have been uploaded again shortly after it was deleted. Users keep trying to add it to her en Wikipedia bio. Thanks, Ohnoitsjamie (talk) 13:34, 6 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Ohnoitsjamie -   Done. I also deleted the other images. Next time, please nominate blatant copyright violations for speedy deletion. Thanks! Missvain (talk) 17:00, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Oh, OK, to be honest I wasn't aware that Commons had a speedy template; I will educate myself on that! Thanks, Ohnoitsjamie (talk) 17:48, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Ohnoitsjamie - No biggie. Even after fifteen years of contributing I still learn something new every day!   Learn more about speedy d's here: Commons:SPEEDY. Missvain (talk) 17:50, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[]

UndeletionEdit

Hi, Could you undelete File:2 Weeks In Italy - A Cinematic Travel Film.webm please so that I can remove the audio, I had hoped the closing admin would've either pinged me or left me a message so that I could quickly remove it as from my point of view I've done things in the past only to be told I didn't need too so I wasn't going to mute it and then find out I didn't have too, Guess it's just one of those things lol, Anyway thanks, –Davey2010Talk 16:14, 6 August 2021 (UTC)[]

User:Davey2010 - Done. Please let me know when you download it, so I can delete it, again. It's actually not my responsibility to ping people when files get deleted. Frankly, the file sat in Deletion Requests for 30 days, which was plenty of time for folks to download, strip the sound, and re-upload it. Thanks again. Missvain (talk) 16:58, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks for undeleting it - Unfortunately I didn't realise the file is 500mb and at present I have terrible internet speeds so this is taking longer than expected, I understand and agree and I apologise for the above message - Just one those things unfortunately, Anyway thanks again for your help it's much appreciated, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 20:40, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by WaldemarwallEdit

Hi Missvain, thanks for closing the DR. In your closure you are writing “btw being "paid editing" is not a policy-based deletion rationale.” However, I never gave "paid editing" as a deletion rationale in my statements. I just pointed out that – in the context of paid editing – these photos are unlikely to be the uploader's own works. I can tell from my experience in the support team, that, most commonly, these pictures are provided by the paying subject to the paid editor. Hence, it is not just a possible out of scope issue as we have to take care of the copyright as well. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 15:22, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[]

AFBorchert - That was referring to the commenter. Missvain (talk) 15:23, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Ok, thanks for the clarification. --AFBorchert (talk) 16:41, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Strange, uneducational imagesEdit

Hello. Thank you for deleting the three image I had nominated. I have nominated five more images from this user right now. It seems the user has a very heavy tendency to upload images whose names make them look educational, but once zoomed in are in fact bizarre and uneducational. From what I get, the user has his/her own wiki - as advertised in File:Norse cosmology.svg and the user's profile - and uses WCommons to host his/her creations related to this wiki. It might a good idea to look into the upload history of the user. Veverve (talk) 08:27, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Veverve - Very weird stuff. Make sure to provide them a warning and then if they don't stop. Alas, deletion requests don't really do the trick and we generally result to blocks as last resorts. If they don't stop, I'll give them a final warning and then proceed to block, if absolutely necessary. I'll let the files you nominated go through their week long Deletion Request process and take care of them. Thank you for your due diligence. Feel free to do one mass nomination for any files you find troublesome of theirs. That saves volunteers time in reviewing deletion requests. Missvain (talk) 16:48, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[]
User warned. I am very happy you do not recognise in those drawings the classic religious type of people who tend to work very hard to link every religion and other theories together in a strange mishmash; as for me I have spent too much time on the internet to ignore this archetype. Veverve (talk) 17:13, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Do you have a tool which would help me making a batch DR? The images concerned are File:Yggdrasil.png, File:Races of Norse cosmology.png, File:Navajo cosmology.png, File:Norse cosmology.tif, File:Jotnar.png, File:Navajo cosmology.svg, File:The 9 worlds of Norse cosmology.png, File:Norse cosmology.png (all those cosmologies are shown as a circle - why? -, are unsourced, and most have some syncretic elements inserted by the user); and File:Allotment of land to the 12 Tribes of Israel.svg (bloated, has the Roman god Janus in the Sea of Galilee; I did not look much into it).
File:World tree stretching from Heaven to Hell.png, File:Mouth of Tartarus.svg and File:Tartarus.svg seem acceptable to me.
The other images uploaded by the user as science related, so I do not have the skills to juge them. Veverve (talk) 09:39, 18 August 2021 (UTC) Images nominated. Veverve (talk) 10:03, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Tagooty -- deleted File:Spire Debre Libanos Monastery Ethiopia Oct19 D72 12188.jpgEdit

Thank you for keeping two files of stained-glass windows. The file File:Spire Debre Libanos Monastery Ethiopia Oct19 D72 12188.jpg showing the spire was deleted. I learnt recently that the Debre Libanos Monastery was designed by architect Hector Corfiato who died in 1963. This is documented in his obituary in the Journal of the Royal Society of Arts. Hence, his copyright would have ended in 2013. Presuming that he designed the spire and cross, I request you to kindly reconsider the deletion of this file. --Tagooty (talk) 09:10, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Tagooty - Thank you for presenting me this update! Good job at finding out these details.   I've undeleted the file. Cheers! Missvain (talk) 16:46, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[]
  Thank you. The cross file has a "nominated for deletion" notice. Could you please resolve this?
Katherine Hevezi, daughter of the artist who created the stained-glass windows, recalled the name of the architect from when she was a 12-year old girl! A search in Wikipedia and DuckDuckGo found the obit. --Tagooty (talk) 01:32, 13 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Revision deletionEdit

Hi! I've fixed a typo in my File:WHATWG DOM.png. Please «delete» i.e. hide the old version. --Максим Пе (talk) 16:11, 17 August 2021 (UTC) @Missvain: --Максим Пе (talk) 18:33, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[]

German standard varieties.pngEdit

Hello Missvain, I'm sorry about this, could I request that the following map is deleted File:German standard varieties.png [2], this is yet another duplicate of the original Postmann Michael map, it appears multiple copies were created, and in the description it says this copy is just a "retouched picture" of the original map created by Postmann Michael, who got banned for showing sympathies towards National Socialism (link). --E-960 (talk) 07:25, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Whose file is this originally E-960? I don't want to proceed until that is clarified since it looks like a few cooks (and a bot?) were in the kitchen for this. If you are indeed not, it might be ideal to go through DR. Missvain (talk) 20:54, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Sorry, I should have mentioned I set up the DR here [3], at this point its been up for the minimum of seven days. --E-960 (talk) 10:50, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[]
This file was set up by user Zoris Trömm~commonswiki (who was notified of the deletion request), it's an exact duplicate of the deleted Verbreitungsgebiet_der_deutschen_Sprache.PNG map by user Postmann Michael (cites it as source, and is the exact same file under a different name). The only difference is that it has an English language title and is a "retouched picture" (as stated in the description). I would have grouped it with the original deletion request, however it was in some other category and I just overlooked it. Since then, if you recall I found several versions/duplicates of the Postmann Michael map scattered through various categories on WikiCommons. Also, this was noted by User:Piotrus, who commented on this an other maps. Postmann Michael's maps (and the prolific clones of his maps) are a problematic case due to the fact the a large number of them were already deleted over time due to accuracy issues, and the fact that Postmann Michael's account was blocked due to some questionable view regarding Nazism quote: "POV from doubtful sources and trivializing National Socialism." - which is a very serious charge. --E-960 (talk) 05:37, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Also, the original Verbreitungsgebiet_der_deutschen_Sprache.PNG:, was open to discussion for over a month, and no one provided reliable sources to confirm the accuracy of that map. Again, my apologies for the confusion, since German standard varieties.png is the exact same image under a English file name, I should have included in in the same deletion request (and it would have been less irritating), I just overlooked it. --E-960 (talk) 06:34, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks E-960, all I needed was the DR. I'd also appreciate if folks would only ping me about speedy deletions. When I have personal capacity, I will go to review DRs, but, sometimes I don't, and I don't want to give any (except those that qualify for speedy) special privilege over others. Yes, there are many that last longer than seven days, but, most aren't urgent. Cheers. Missvain (talk) 16:50, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Confirmation about your Carmel, Indiana photosEdit

Hi Sarah, I'm Ryota Yashima a.k.a. Yassie (talk), who usually writes articles about U.S. cities onto Japanese Wikipedia.

I'd like to confirm one thing; Are these photos of Kawachinagano Japanese Garden, just to the south of Carmel City Hall in Carmel, Indiana?

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Microsoft Windows 95 Version 4.00.1111 command.com MS-DOS Prompt 492x259.pngEdit

Hi. I happened upon this image and was kinda puzzled by your decision to not delete it. The argument for keeping it was to simply paste the text of an inapplicable template. Simple shapes and letters are not subject to copyright. But this text clearly passes a threshold of originality. If two people came to you, showed you a blue triangle, and both said "I created this", they might both be telling the truth - it simply isn't a creative work. But if two people both came to you with the text in this image and said, "I wrote this", one of them must be lying because they wouldn't independently come up with it. It's not exactly on point, but in a recent Supreme Court case w:Google LLC v. Oracle America, Inc., Google was found not to be infringing on Oracle's API patent because of fair use. But nobody anywhere questioned that the APIs are copyrighted. That would be the same case here - reprinting this manual is certainly "fair use", but we don't do that on Commons. --B (talk) 21:23, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]
