Hello again. I'm sorry that I'm not an OTRS volunteer so I can't help you with this. You can ask somebody here or leave your request at OTRS noticeboard. Good luck. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 04:31, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Transfer the image to the Wikimedia Commons

Hello again my friend. Service possible, please.

I want you to upload this image to Wikimedia Commons. And the source of the Flickr here. Best Regards. --MyCanon (talk) 19:05, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

  Done, thanks--Morning Sunshine (talk) 04:21, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Flickr reviews under your old usernames

Please add User:FlickreviewR/Images never editted by their reviewer to your watchlist and check for images with your old username review tags. If anyone pops-up and the review was valid, please just replace your old username with your current one and remove these images from the list as fixed. Thank you. --Denniss (talk) 09:42, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know this. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 12:02, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

File:Rowan Atkinson 2011 2.jpg

Hello, I always thought Wikipedia's motto was "Feel free and improve". Everyone is encouraged to add, improve or correct information. The same goes for Wikimedia: that's why they built a "Upload a new version of this file" link on every image page. So that is what I did, I improved a crop of a an image from Flickr and described why I thought it is an improvement (tighter crop, eyes in centre, colour correction, noise reduction). Sometimes an initial uploader reverts that, thinking his or her version is better. I most of the times leave it like that, because it is sometimes hard to see your effort been taken over. But you, not being the initial uploader, reverted my version, and I am wondering why. Do you really think the crop by Blue Marble with the distracting shadowline, and the head left of center, was a better one? I doubt it. Maybe you thought this was the original image, and should therefore be kept? Well it's not, it is just an edited version of the image on Flickr. I am not asking for any official, unofficial or personal policies as an answer. I just want to know if you thought the first crop was the better one and why. I am not going to upload the image again, I did my best. That's it. Kind regards. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 15:24, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello. Reuploading image ("Upload a new version of this file") is allowed when you make minor corrections to the original image which don't change the image much. You can also reupload when you have the exact image which has higher resolution than the original one (if available in free license). For detail, you can see here. Your new image version about Rowan Atkinson is a substantial crop which is different from the original. I notice that you have already been warned about this by Saibo. So why don't you start a new image? You are always free to do that. Good luck. Best regatds! (And BTW I am the initial uploader of the image. When you click the link of User:Blue Marble, it will automatically link to my page)--Morning Sunshine (talk) 03:42, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
Hi, quite an extensive answer, I must say, unfortenately about things I didn't ask for, rules. The only relevant answer was the sentence between brackets. Maybe I should not do this, but I simply have to point out to you that you are trying to silence me with an unofficial guideline, which you seem to see as a policy. It's not a policy, it's not even a guideline, it is a proposed guideline. So, it is up to the individual user whether to follow it or not. So your argument, being "warned before by Saibo" is totally inappropriate, certainly if you know what that was all about. You could have checked the file history. But all in all, I did what you did, and that is make a crop of a Flickr original. The only thing is, it was your file. I make my bow. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 10:43, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I think your version is really good and it is appreciated. However, it doesn't mean that you can usurp somebody's image by uploading a substantial crop so you should start it under new filename. And it's not all because that the image is my upload. I have reverted this image before. Although it's not an official policy but I think it's right. I think many people here are following it. For example here. Sometimes, you think your new image is better but another may not think so and overwriting may cause controversies which may lead to edit-warring. I think my answer now is right for you. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 13:32, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Usurp? Where would Wikipedia be, if anyone could say, go write your own article about this topic, you cannot usurp mine... Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 11:03, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
While, as you say, Commons:Avoid overwriting existing files, is only a proposed policy, nonetheless it has been seen and discussed by a variety of active editors and is generally accepted. The File:MartinScorsese(cannes).jpg example there of what not to do that is almost exactly parallel to this case. You may certainly upload your crop to a new file with a name such as File:Rowan Atkinson 2011 2 (crop).jpg, but Morning Sunshine's action was entirely correct.
I must also point out that this is Commons, not Wikipedia. Citing WP policy on Commons will often be incorrect as the policies are different in many ways. On Wikipedia, an article does not have an owner -- something that is explicitly covered by policy on WP:EN at Ownership of articles. On Commons, though, every media file has a creator -- the one who supplied it. That creation may be as simple as uploading it from Flickr or it can be the actual creation of the image or sound. Since such creators are essential here, we tend to give them considerable say in the treatment of their uploads.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:55, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
I finished this discussion here. It started because I didn't know Blue Marble is an old name of Morning Sunshine. It only lingered on because of replies he gave. I continued a discussion about the proposal over there because we don't need another restrictive rule. Btw, a copy paster of media does not need to be given more say than anyone else. I wonder what Jimmy Wales thinks of all these developments? Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 20:32, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Pictures about to be deleted

Hello Morning sunshine, so you sent a message saying that my images were copyright violation, but I actually got permission some of them! I talked to the owner, what should I do now? I got permission and I am in touch with the creator. What should I do in order to leave the image?

Hello. You can have a look at OTRS and some conversations with other users above. Just send the permission you have received from them to permissions-commons Good luck!--Morning Sunshine (talk) 04:47, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

what? how? I mean I have to send an email? but saying what? what shoul I explain? and how?... could you help me please? I don't really want this picture deleted and I got permission...

If you keep in touch with the author, tell them to send you the email which says that they agree to let you use the image on Commons under one of free license here (you can tell them about this to write in the email if necessary). Then forward the email you have received to permissions-commons and the OTRS volunteer will confirm the permission for you. For more information, please contact them here or leave you message at OTRS Noticeboard. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 04:35, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

A Woman in Berlin

A Woman in Berlin is a video tape cover and as much as I know it has the same condition in terms of copyright as all of the other video tape covers which have been uploaded in wiki commons.--Microinjection (talk) 16:12, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Hello. The reason I mark your image as copyvio is that it is a fair use image which is not free "A free replacement cannot be created as doing so would infringe copyright of the original" so can not accepted on Commons. Thanks--Morning Sunshine (talk) 16:16, 5 January 2012 (UTC)


  • Hello again, my friend, how do I upload a picture through the OTRS ?
  • Such images, that you upload you are:[1], [2]. Best Regards. --MyCanon (talk) 15:00, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Please, I want the answer to this thread. --MyCanon (talk) 23:33, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
Oh, sorry for the delay answer. I'm a bit busy on these days. The images that I uploaded through OTRS are all from Flickr. Some users on Flickr aren't willing to change their license on image page, but they still let me use their images freely, so they gave me the permission in the Flickrmail, then I forwarded the screenshot of message as an images attached to email (because Flickrmail cann't be forward directly) to and have it dealt with by an OTRS volunteer (you can meet them here. However, I think changing the license on image page is the best way to verify image license correctly. You can also use OTRS for image comes from external source where you can contact with the authors to persuade them release their images to free licenses. In this case, I don't know very much. You can ask for more information from User:Nehrams2020, who has uploaded over 2000 images (many of them are confirmed by OTRS) as well as a former OTRS volunteers. Thank you. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 04:55, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Hello again, my friend. Thank you for reply. Thanks for the useful information about this topic. But I do not see contributions of User:Nehrams2020. On a daily basis. But I will demand by OTRS volunteers. Thank you. Best regards. --MyCanon (talk) 14:45, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

My picture was deleted


I uploades the picture ( and you deleted it!! The person on this picture is a very good friend of mine and i need to upload this picture to take it on his wikipedia page. So, I didnt take it - but I have the rights to use it!! So what can i do to upload it again and finally to save it???

its important!

greetings from germany

I'm sorry, you do not have to upload the image from a Web page. Because the from copyvio. That you want to upload this person a picture, looking for in this link, or did not find him looking here. Again, do not forget to sign the talk page. That you want to help, ask me on my talk page. Best Regards. --MyCanon (talk) 11:41, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Hello. I think that your friend's being in the image doesn't make him eligible to release it under free license unless he owns the copyright of it. So you can't have the rights to use it in that way. You need to contact the author/copyright owner of the images to persuade them release it under one of the free licenses and the forward the email you receive from them to OTRS at And then put your undeletion request here to restore it if the permission is sufficient. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 11:48, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Morning Sunshine, congratulations! You now have administrator rights on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons on There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators:#wikimedia-commons-admin.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references.

Welcome to the team, finally. And thank you for cleaning up my Wick image -- I don't know how that sneaked by me -- maybe because I have 30,000 items on my Watchlist?

30,000 items, oh my! How do you clean it? Seems to be impossible without breaking the browser. If you need a script for cleaning (e.g. all DRs and redlinks or similar, please tell me). -- RE rillke questions? 16:22, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Just a word of caution: If you delete an image here, CommonsDelinker will pick-up this from a log/recent changes and will remove it from all usages. So one should be careful...

Deleted pictures


I uploaded some pictures that were deleted and most of them had been granted permission to me by their authors to use them. How can I fix this?



Hello. If the permission for those images has been granted by their authors, please use Commons:OTRS (follow the instruction there or have a look at some conversation above) and request for undeletion here. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 08:53, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Question about picture

Have a good day!

Please, let me know why did you delete the picture "Autoreview newspaper cover, 3, 2012.jpg" from the page I'm from the Autoreview newspaper and have all the rights to use the image.



Hello. If you hold the copyright of this cover, please read and follow OTRS carefully. You can also see some of my conversations about this here. Thanks. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 15:55, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Some flickr reviews

[3] [4] You apparently reviewed these images uploaded a few weeks ago. Both currently say "all rights reserved" on flickr. The first has a copyright notice in the flickr image; I think the uploaded image has indications of photoshopping in that area. Do you recall reviewing these images? Gimmetoo (talk) 18:04, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I don't remember exactly but I usually look at the page when I review an image from Flickr. So I assume that it was available under cc-by license before the author has revoked it (remember that Creative Commons license are irrevocable when granted). For more information, you can ask their uploader Asj wichi. She/he has uploaded a lot of images about Britney Spears and I think they have knowledge about Creative Commons license. Thank you. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 06:42, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

photo Axellemaricq.jpg

Bonjour cher Morning Sunshine.

Vous avez supprimé une photo d'Axelle Maricq car le copyright de la photographe, Sarah Robine, y figure.

Sarah Robine a fait ces photos, qui lui ont été payées tout à fait régulièrement, avec déclaration à l'URSSAFF et tout le tremblement, précisément dans le but qu'Anxelle Maricq puisse les utiliser dans la presse, sur le web et notamment sur Wikipedia.

Sarah Robine vient de nous donner son accord pour la publication. Comment doit-on procéder pour pouvoir les utiliser?

Bonjour Monsieur Krivine,
Je vais y répondre ici parce que Morning Sunshine n'est pas able de répondre en Français.
Si vous publier une photo sur Wikimedia Commons, il est nécessaire d'accepter à un usage commercial, aussi. Est-ce que Sarah Robine a donné son accord pour la publication et l'usage commercial?
Si c'est vrais, lire Commons:OTRS/fr, s'il vous plait.
Je m'excuse pour mon Français horrible. S'il y a encore des questions (dites-moi, s.v.p), je vais demander une personne avec Français comme langue maternelle. Merci. -- RE rillke questions? 14:04, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

File:Stade Louis Michel.jpg

Hello, Morning Sunshine

I want to know why do you have delete the file Stade Louis Michel.jpg, because I'm the autor of this photo, and I autorize wikipidedia to use it.

You use like reason for deleted that this photo is on this website ( but, it's normal because, it's my photo on this site ...

Can you restaure this photo please ?


CONCACAF-Footballeur (talk) 06:05, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello. If you own the copyright of that image, please read and follow OTRS carefully to confirm that you are the author of it. Then request for undeletion here. For more details, please have a look at some of my old conversations. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 09:42, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Electronic Warfare in Switzerland.jpg


Can you provide a clear rationale why you decided to keep this image, please? Thank you in advance. Regards, High Contrast (talk) 10:26, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Ein Geheimnis wird da wahrlich nicht veröffentlicht. Außerdem kümmern wir uns auf Commons doch vorrangig um das Urheberrecht? Weiterhin umfasst die Beschreibung keine Hinweise auf die Funktionsweise bis auf das Glasfaserkabel zur Datenübertragung, die nicht auch im Foto sichtbar wären. Das Foto kann auch in Einklang mit Schweizer Recht behalten werden. Eventuell müsste die Beschreibung redaktiert werden. Siehe auch Mr. Kuipers Link. -- RE rillke questions? 11:49, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
The reason given by the nominator was "The author of this file, Kecko, was sued by Swiss authorities due to publishing secret information." Both is wrong: 1) He was not sued; you need a court for this. 2) not Swiss authorities; instead Swiss military 3) He did not publish secret information; instead he added descriptions to his photos he found on the internet and this was prohibited (publishing photo+description how it works).
I don't know how such cases were treated on Commons in the past but a deletion is, I agree, not an option. Either the text is redacted (removing the few technical details) or nothing is done since this is only Swiss law. -- RE rillke questions? 13:56, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry if I missed anything. I just see no problem in the image. It is licensed under accepted free permission (The file link to Flickr is dead, however, this image is uploaded by bot and CC licenses cannot be revoked so I assume the license is correct). If you have any concerns, feel free to make another DR. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 14:50, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Keep your fingers away from my user page

Why did you touch it? --Saibo (Δ) 21:10, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm sincerely sorry if my action annoyed you. I see that you've put your userboxes and babel in your talk page so I simply think that redirecting to it is better than leaving your user page red link like this. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 04:02, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Hallo Morning Sunshine, okay, thank you for the explanation. Yes, to be honest, it annoyed me since I had not deleted it without reason and I do well know how to make a redirect myself (and I guess you know that I know). ;-) And, yes, I don't like it being a redlink. I have my reasons for it currently. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 19:56, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

License Review

File:Windows 8 preview menu.jpg

Hi! I uploaded [5] to Commons and it was deleted by you. Please give a quick explanation as to what happened, as the URL appears to have just a 'Attribution' clause available, and my impression was that it's ok for uploading. Thank you. (: Gryllida 05:35, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Although the image you had uploaded is licensed under cc-by license on Flickr, its copyright belongs to Microsoft which is fair use and not allowed on Commons. This is called license laundering or Flickr washing. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 09:41, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the detailed reply. Would this mean that you found this image at the Microsoft website, or is the fact of it being a screenshot of a Microsoft commercial product sufficient? --Gryllida 05:51, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

File:Charles Taylor Philosopher and Kyoto Prize Laureate.jpg

Morning Sunshine,

The Charles Taylor photo I put up has been approved by its owner for Creative Commons licensing on Flickr.

Your reason for deletion is "non-commercial" usage isn't allowed. But why is Wikimedia considered commercial given that it's a non-profit?

Wikimedia Foundation is free for all so its contents must be able to be used for any purposes, including commercial. So Only 2 Creative Commons licenses allowed here are Attribution (CC-BY) and Attribution ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA). Other licenses which contain Non-Commercial (NC) and NoDerivative (ND) are not. Your image is licensed under CC-BY-ND-SA so it certainly got deleted. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 11:46, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

File:Entrada Museo Provincial.jpg

Hello, Morning Sunshine. I write this lines because the file Entrada Museo Provincial.jpg has a license. The author in Panoramio website, [7], leave the next licence: [8]. You can use the photo with this licence provide that recognize to the author, in this case "jabaeyens". Also in the photo Murallas Huesca.jpg because is the same author. Grettings.--Semontanés (talk) 12:17, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello. The image Entrada Museo Provincial.jpg was deleted because its license, CC-BY-NC-SA, is not compatible with Commons. Only 2 Creative Commons licenses CC-BY and CC-BY-SA are acceptable. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 15:25, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

upload from

Hi Morning Sunshine, I've seen at File:Disney on Ice - Princesses & Heroes 2011.jpg that you have positively reviewed the licensing of an upload from For the me, a statement such as "(C)2011 Feld Entertainment Inc. Please contact for usage" in the EXIF data would raise strong doubts about CC-BY licensing. I had no earlier contact with this source, but was alerted as User:Bensin uploaded a lot of high-qual album covers today. --Túrelio (talk) 16:33, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

I think it's better to make a DR on this image or other similar ones. I admit that I hadn't notice about this until I found that Bensin has uploaded this which is a posible copyvios and a lot of high-qual album covers as you've said above. I will fix my mistakes. Kind regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 16:49, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
I don't say it's a mistake, this source is just a mistery (or a big hoax). --Túrelio (talk) 16:50, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
And I have found a lot of results for File:Disney on Ice - Princesses & Heroes 2011.jpg--Morning Sunshine (talk) 17:03, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Hello! I have uploaded a lot of images from see here, all which were relesed under CC-licenses by what I understand to be their respective copyright holders. As I understand mynewsdesk is a tool used as a channel for press releases and I have no reason to believe anything else than that the works released there were authorized by the copyright holders. (read more about mynewsdesk at the article on English Wikipedia here) --Bensin (talk) 17:08, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Hi. You are correct about license but I have the same doubt with Túrelio. I think making a DR is a good way to fix the problem as we can hear the voice from the community and some of them may know about this--Morning Sunshine (talk) 17:13, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good. Any way of having a discussion about all the deletion requests all in once place, since they all involve the same issue? Like on the Village pump? --Bensin (talk) 17:34, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
I started a discussion on the Village pump here and I'll refrain from uploading more images from the site until this issue is resolved. --Bensin (talk) 17:50, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Send a permission

Hello again Morning Sunshine, I have a request as possible. Can you send a permission for this pic to OTRS ?

I am surprised, it has become the picture about 5 months, and no warning for this image. --MyCanon (talk) 18:53, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for pointing out but I am not the author of this image or have a permission for it. Moreover, as the source states it comes from (exact link) so it's obviously a copyvio--Morning Sunshine (talk) 05:36, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
You have the right, you must delete this picture, because it is from the copyvio. Thanks for the service. Best Regards. --MyCanon (talk) 11:49, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello, Geo Swan, the image that you have mentioned is unrelated to the others in Category:Samantha Nutt.

Hi, Morning Sunshine. Why you didn't delete File:天地乃響.jpg ( ? Takabeg (talk) 11:36, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Why didn't you, Takabeg specify the reason? (diff=68075545&oldid=68071127) If you take a look at Template:Copyvio, you will see that you can use 1= to specify a reason or source= to specify a source. -- RE rillke questions? 11:44, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Stop removing good Wikipedia images

Hello, today you removed 2 good Wikipedia images of the Firefox logo. These logos are allowed to be reused under Share-Alike 3.0. Mozilla outlines what you can and cannot do with their logo:

Do some research next time.

Category:Mozilla Firefox logos / further reading -- RE rillke questions? 23:02, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps Trewyy should do the research. The very first item in the list of prohibited uses of the Firefox logo at the page he cites is
"alter our logos in any way"
That is an ND restriction, which Commons does not allow.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:24, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

List of Admins

Updating this list is tricky because there are so many hands in the pie. I just added back Andrew c and Bastique, which you removed, because they are still on the system's internal list. Always check that the system's count and the last number in the list (at the bottom) match. While that is obviously not the final word on correctness, it's a good start. For a definitive check compare to -- putting them both in Excel makes it easy.

Also, always update the by Date and Language lists at the same time.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:24, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello Jim. I removed Bastique and Andrew c from the list with some others admins from the list over a week ago because they were initially desysoped for inactivity. A few days ago, both Bastique and Andrew c requested to reinstate their adminship. Thank you for adding them back. Best regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 12:32, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Please give back the picture.

Deletion of WebGLScreenShot.png

Hi! You deleted this picture because (I guess) there is no confirming email from the author. As I explained on that image page, I *am* the author of the picture. I can hardly email myself giving myself permission to post it! Please restore the picture and put it back in the various places from which it was removed. Plus, it would be nice if you'd notified me of the removal so I could have a chance to explain this to you. SteveBaker (talk) 12:17, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello. Capturing a screenshot of a copyrighted games/software doesn't make you the author of that image. Unless you are the designer/copyright holder, you can't have the right to release it under a free license. Please read and follow OTRS carefully. I or any other admin will consider restoring it if the email contains sufficient permission. Btw, you have already been noticed about this when Saibo tagged your image for missing permission on 13 Feb. No OTRS image will be deleted on the next 30 days after tagging.

В чем дело

по какому праву вы убрали являющуюся моей собственностью фотографию "Елена_Соколова_в_спектакле_БЕЗ_ВИНЫ_ВИНОВАТЫЕ_сцена_2.jpg" и другие из этой серии?

removed photos of Qadria Yazdanparast

Hello Morning Sunshine,

I see that at March 26, you have removed three photos of Qadria Yazdanparast: Qadria_Yazdanparastphoto.JPG, Qadria Yazdanparst bezoek.JPG and yet another photo that I don't have the name anymore because it was not used.
I had written an article about this politician in Dutch and English, and because I didn't have pictures of her, I sent her an email and asked to upload some copyright-free photos to Commons, and then I would put them in the articles on the Dutch and English Wikipedia. And so she did: she uploaded three photos to Commons and I decided to use two of them in the articles.
But now they are removed and I wonder what might have gone wrong, as I'm sure that Qadria herself gave permission as she uploaded them. Maybe she did something wrong because she did it the first time, on my instructions.
I hope you can tell me what might have gone wrong and how this can be restored.
Thanks in advance, Erik Wannee (talk) 20:14, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Hello. Sorry for the delayed answer. You can use OTRS (read and follow the instruction carefully). Tell the uploader about this or do it yourself if you have the permission attached on email.

Luisana Lopilato

Hello, Morning Sunshine. I'm coming to you for help as I'm relatively inexperienced in image matters. You recently deleted an image that was being used on this article as a copyvio. It appears that a user has reuploaded the image and is presenting the image as their own work. I can't tell for sure as the original has been deleted and I can't see if it's exactly the same; it appears the same from memory. This article has been plagued by edits and image additions from either overly enthusiastic fans or promotional entities or, I suspect, both. Couold you take a look at File:Luisana en Casa.jpg and take any action you deem necessary? Thanks for your help. Tiderolls 23:46, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Images of Aitken Spence Hotels: copyright authorizations already obtained from original publishers

Dear Morning Sunshine,

This is further to the deletion of the following two images from Aitken Spence wikipedia page:

1). m (Removing "Hotel_Kandalama.jpg", it has been deleted from Commons by Morning Sunshine because: Copyright violation: obvious copyright violation, e.g.

2).m (Removing "Adaaran_prestige_water_villas_Meedhupparu.jpg", it has been deleted from Commons by Morning Sunshine

I contacted the Aitken Spence Hotels (the owners of the hotels portrayed in the picture, who are also the original owners of the images)and obtained their authorization to use the images for publishing on Aitken Spence wiki. The image on has also been authorized by Aitken Spence Hotels who hold the right for the said image. This is also the case for the pic used in The same picture was originally published in Aitken Spence Hotels Annual Report on Page 21-23 (refer

You may verify the copyright authorization by contacting <<>>, who is the Aitken Spence Hotels' contact for public realtions.

Would appreciate your insight on this regard and the way forward

User rights

Thanks At the risk of sounding ungrateful, do you think that I could could get rollback and AWB access as well? I considered license review, as I upload from Flickr.

OK, you can ask for other rights but I advise that you shouldn't request to much of them in the short period of time. This can make people think that you are just collecting rights (hat collecting). I'm sorry to say this but you should think about withdrawing your LR review request as you didn't leave any reasons for becoming a LR and from what I can see in your comment above I considered license review, as I upload from Flickr, you may get LR right to reviewing your upload, which is discouraged here.

Thank You,


I have checked your email but the permission attached to it is not enough. The author must specify a free license (see here instead of saying "you have my permission to use it on Wikipedia". An image on Commons is free for use anywhere, not only Wikipedia. Try to contact the author again and tell him/her about this. Good luck--Morning Sunshine (talk) 06:44, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Get a picture and add OTRS

Hello Morning Sunshine, I want to know where this user got a ticket for this images:

Let's look at the contributions of images here, here, here. Clearly been developed without the approval of volunteer OTRS. I think that the images should be deleted. --MyCanon (talk) 16:00, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
The OTRS of these images are valid. All the images from except wallpaper, poster, screenshot are free to use under cc-by-3.0 according to that OTRS ticket. It appears when you tag the template {{Cc-by-3.0-BollywoodHungama}}. Anyone can do this provided that the image comes from As you are a reviewer so you need to know this. Good luck Morning Sunshine (talk) 17:12, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
If images for Freida Pinto intact. And I've reviewed these images. Thank you for everything. Good luck. --MyCanon (talk) 03:17, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

  Done image deleted, user blocked--Morning Sunshine (talk) 07:05, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Great, Thank you!. In order not to give it back this user, again. --MyCanon (talk) 07:25, 27 May 2012 (UTC)


Chào cậu người Việt Nam! Hiện giờ cậu đang ở tỉnh thành nào ở Việt Nam thế? (để có dịp mời cậu đi họp mặt của các thành viên Wikipedia) Mình chỉ tò mò vậy thôi! Mình là thành viên chủ yếu từ Wikipedia! Mình lò mò qua đây thấy cậu là Sysop đầu tiên rành tiếng Việt! Chúc mừng cậu nhé! Mai mốt có gì rảnh mời cậu qua tham gia Wikipedia :D! Ờ mà mình nhờ cậu chuyển cái hình này qua Common được không? Mình nhờ nhiều sysop và nhiều người rồi nhưng chả ai giúp mình nổi! Hic pó luôn! Cảm ơn! Trongphu (talk) 06:56, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Chào Phú, rất vui được gặp cậu. Trước hết, mình xin cảm ơn nhã ý của cậu. Mình ở TP Vinh, Nghệ An nhưng tiếc là mình bận học quá, năm sau thi đại học rồi, đành để dịp sau vậy. Còn về hình ảnh tại ki thì mình ko giúp được vì ảnh hiện đang bị gắn thẻ thiếu thông tin bản quyền và có thể bị xóa trong 7 ngày tới. Nếu cậu muốn chuyể hình lên Commons cho nhanh thì có thể dùng bot CommonsHelper, chọn Directly upload file để bot tự động up (nhớ tạo TUSC account). Nhân tiện mình xin giới thiệu mình bằng tuổi cậu và rất mong được làm bạn với cậu. Mình cũng đang có ý định đóng góp cho (có lẽ là chỉ tập trung vào tập tin và chống vandalism, quảng cáo hoặc những sửa đổi nhỏ như mình đã làm trên chứ viết bài cũng kém lắm) có gì nhờ cậu chỉ bảo. Thân--Morning Sunshine (talk) 15:41, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
Không dám chỉ bảo cậu đâu! Mình ngu lắm, có nhờ cậu chỉ bảo thì có HAA! Ờ cái hình đó hình nhừ mới bị gắn bản xóa đấy chứ mấy ngày trước chưa bị gì cả! Thôi ba cái vụ Bot với biết và transfer image từ chỗ này qua chỗ nọ thì mình không biết làm đâu! Mình cũng ngại dính vô ba cái chuyện phức tạp này lắm! Mình chỉ tải mình cho mình tự tạo ra thôi chứ ba cái hình copyright rồi búa lua xua thì mệt! Mình không rành ba cái vụ này đâu nên chả biết làm khỉ mốc gì cả! Mai mốt ba cái vụ này thì mình phải nhờ cậu thôi chứ tự làm chắc làm không nổi đâu! Trongphu (talk) 17:23, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Deleted image reuploaded

File:Portada Pan núm. 19.png was previous deleted per Commons:Deletion requests/File:Coberta de la revista Pan..gif, and File:RevistaPan.png and File:Pannnn18.gif have the same dubious source. The user expressed his concerns at the Catalan village pump about the decision you closed. Althouh he was informed that the legal situation of this source is unclear and that he should apply for undelation requests, he rejected to do so. --V.Riullop (talk) 14:27, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Delete nom

This file that you nominated for deletion: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Тула Продукт.jpg for scope is part of a business logo so probably a copyvio. I've voted delete on it. INeverCry 18:34, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome Morning Sunshine (talk) 14:15, 24 June 2012 (UTC)


Can you please block this user. (S)he has been edit warring on the Best Western logo continously edit warring. C3F2k (Questions, comments, complaints?) 23:01, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Since when do we privately ask admins to block a user we disagree with rather then taking it to AN/U? Morning Sunshine would be shortsighted to take your request without looking at the facts surrounding this, those being that I already discussed the file in question on it's talk page with another user (an admin no less), and that admin decided to let the matter go and has left the file alone since the 22nd. Then suddenly C3F2k comes alone to the file 4 days later and reverts it to stir up trouble, claiming there's no consensus. Instead, C3F2k should have joined the file talk page rather than reverting it 4 times, especially after I notified C3F2k on his talk page that there was a discussion in progress and he should join it rather then start an edit war, but of course he removed that comment from his talk page (twice), went to AN/U to report me, only to remove it moments later saying "better to deal with this one on one", and coming here to ask another admin to block me without any sort of oversight from the community as would normally be done. In any case, a third admin (Rosenzweig) has protected the file for a week because of C3F2k's edit-warring rather than joining the talk page that was already in progress. I would suggest to C3F2k (if he comes back) to stop A:following me around (because I find it suspicious that you would just "drop by" a file I've edited four days after the fact), and B: if he wants to make it work here, learn to take things to talk rather than edit war. Fry1989 eh? 01:00, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Alo Bove

Hello Morning Sunshine, thank you for restoring three of the images. I confirmed all of them, so could you please treat the other similarly? Kind regards. --Hephaion (talk) 21:23, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello. These pictures seems to be copyios and have been deleted by Beria. I didn't notice that before restoring. The author (Alo Bové) died in 1977 so the OTRS isn't valid. Regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 03:25, 2 July 2012 (UTC)--Morning Sunshine (talk) 03:25, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
Hello again, I think I didn't make the copyright-holder clear enough. With the help of rai'ke, it should be valid now. Regards. --Hephaion (talk) 12:48, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

CTBTO images

Hi, in April some of my uploads from the CTBTO Flickr account were deleted per Commons:Deletion requests/File:Raymond Jeanloz at CTBTO Science and Technology conference.jpg because of a statement on their website which contradicted the Flickr CC-BY license, but I gather there has since been an OTRS ticket confirming CC-BY is valid, per {{CTBTO}}. Would it be possible to have File:Raymond Jeanloz at CTBTO Science and Technology conference.jpg and File:Susan Watts.jpg restored (another user has already re-uploaded the other two images in that DR)? Thanks. January (talk) 18:46, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

  Done and sorry for the delayed reply--Morning Sunshine (talk) 03:37, 4 July 2012 (UTC)


Hi, a moment before you added the OTRS-ticket, an IP changed the author name[9]. Does the new author name conform the ticket content? --Túrelio (talk) 09:16, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello. The OTRS ticket comes from the email adress of website which own copyrights of this image, says that the author is Hans Schaft. So I think the old name is relevant. I will fix it now--Morning Sunshine (talk) 11:14, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

From Vi.WP

Cảm ơn lời mời của bạn, thật sự là dạo này tôi bận quá, công tác bên này cũng chưa xong nữa. Nhưng sẽ dành thời gian tìm hiểu thêm nhiều thứ tại đây, vì cũng yêu nhiếp ảnh nhưng chưa có dịp đeo đuổi. Không hiểu là có công cụ tìm kiếm hình ảnh nào mạnh để rà hình vpbq không? Hiện tại tôi đang dùng TinEyes, hỗ trợ plug-in tìm nhanh cho firefox, nhưng tốc độ chậm quá, mà số hình cần kiểm tra lại thì nhiều. ~ Ultraviolet (talk2me) ~ 10:56, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Hiện tại, mình đang dùng công cụ tìm kiếm hình ảnh của Google, Google Images, vừa nhanh lại vừa hiệu quả. Ở tại đây cũng có công cụ tích hợp sẵn cho cả TinEye và Google (vào Preferences -> Gadgets -> Maintenance tools, chọn Tineye tab hoặc GoogleImages tab, -. Save, OK).--Morning Sunshine (talk) 11:17, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Cảm ơn bạn, nơi đây phần tuỳ chọn đúng là nhiều công cụ quá. :) ~ Ultraviolet (talk2me) ~ 14:02, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

User:Great farmer

Looks like another one of the Sridhar babu / Sridhar1000 socks. I'll take care of it on, but could you do what's needed locally. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 06:36, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

  Done thank you for letting me know this. Regards--Morning Sunshine (talk) 08:52, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Can you also take a look at Varghesejacob? This is a long term problem here and on (two years at least of socking with copyvios). I'd posted on COM:AN/U, but it hasn't attracted any response. —SpacemanSpiff 05:51, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
  Done Thanks--Morning Sunshine (talk) 09:21, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. —SpacemanSpiff 18:46, 27 July 2012 (UTC)


I guess this FAEP fellow jumped the gun a bit? Would it be ok for me to delete that admin notice he left on my tp, and wait for the real thing? INeverCry 03:34, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello INeverCry and congratulate on your adminship. That's not a big thing, do what you want. However, a congratulation message from a crat is always better. Cheers--Morning Sunshine (talk) 03:51, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the congrats and for your help. INeverCry 03:54, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

License review

Holy See symbols

I'm sorry but you need to revert the File:Holysee-arms.svg back to the other way. There is an AN/U about this and Esoglou is the one who is being disruptive, there is a consensus for the keys to be the other way. Fry1989 eh? 15:58, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

I've unprotected the files but I won't take any further actions as I don't understand this field. Moreover, I plan to retire now so I will postpone my work here. See you later--Morning Sunshine (talk) 16:51, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for unprotecting the file. Sorry to see someone retire thought. 17:04, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!
