Is this image legal?Edit

I am not sure about the license of the following image: Image:060815 f 005.jpg. I suspect that it is copywrited. I dont know exactly what to do when I found a irregular image, so I am asking you to investigate.

Thank you very much. --Carlosar 20:36, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: COM:DEL and stuffEdit

Hey Nilfanion,

Don't worry, you don't seem stupid at all. MediaWiki is a tricky beast to learn and I've made a fool of myself many times in attempting to understand it. :)

I don't think it's disorganised... We just keep bureaucracy to an extreme minimum. :P It's true, we have no written-down blocking policy. But actually I have seen very few legitimate complaints about blocking. The few I have seen have been handled well.

I think because everyone usually has a 'home wiki' where they learn most of the wiki culture, including what's a blockable fence, what's vandalism, what's trolling etc, that's why we don't have a written down one.

If anything we probably don't block enough - users who repeatedly upload copyrighted/unsourced material are the biggest problem and they tend to get pages of warnings. After a few warnings, I think a short block is better to get their attention.

Anyway...that is the reason some stuff isn't written down, to minimise bureaucracy. And, you know, we're overworked and underpaid. :P

I guess we will have an admin board in the very, very near future, since several people have made comments like this recently. In fact, as soon as someone bothers to make one and announce it...

Keep playing around, if you have any questions my talk page is always open.

cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 14:21, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Commons--A Refuge for those Disenchanted with en.wp. :)
Perhaps, a short block on Commons would be more effective if combined with a block on their "home"? Hmm, I can see that *not* working for many reasons. One, many people don't indicate what their home wiki is. Two, it would require a level of inter-wiki trust and communication that simply does not exist at the moment. Many projects are almost fierce in their determination to allow users to edit who have been blocked on other wikis. A Commons block is not a punishment, but like a bucket of water in the face to finally make them pay attention to what we're saying. I don't really see blocks elsewhere serving that purpose. Besides which, blocks here are effective enough -- it's just there probably isn't enough of them. :) pfctdayelise (translate?) 15:21, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Request for adminshipEdit

Your request for adminship has closed and your vote passed. You are now an admin! Please don't hesitate to ask if there's anything I can help you with. Also, be aware that if you have an irc client, try to make yourself available through #wikimedia-commons whenever you can. Thanks and happy sysoping! Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 19:42, 2 September 2006 (UTC)


They may have been uploaded from the en wiki, but I always check the licence prior to uploading the file. If it's written that it's PD or GFDL, why can't I upload it? 18:43, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Why was Image:8btheater.png deleted? It was under GFDL, as prooved on English wikipedia? 17:47, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

I hereby award you the Working Man's Barnstar for all your hard work managing images on Commons. :) Coredesat 18:24, 7 September 2006 (UTC)


Maybe you know the answer to this? Are the images used here [1] PD? They could fill in some of the gaps on the typhoon pages which are really hard to find. For example, this [2] one says NRL Monterrey, but I cannot find anything about that in NRL's archives. Good kitty 13:53, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Justin's imagesEdit

Hello Nilfanion,

Thanks a lot for doing that work! However, in your next uploads, I think it would be better not to say "Original image Image:Palestine occupationXX.jpg". The old image will be removed in any case, and now everybody who checks the image page at the Wikipedias will see "Palestine occupation". In any case, thanks again for your work. Yellow up 18:51, 9 September 2006 (UTC)


Hi, you have warned this user last week because he uploaded copyrightes images. Now again he uploaded such images (Special:Contributions/Mattk4e). Can you please confirm that and delete the images? Thanks. --GeorgHH 05:18, 10 September 2006 (UTC)


I know it is gone but why it didn't show up? --Irfanfaiz 12:43, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Deleting duplicatesEdit

I ihope you remember that you must not delete duplicates before you have replaced them in all projects. -Samulili 10:06, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Image:Warsaw 1 Zlota-44 2.jpgEdit

Hi, you can delete this image. User Hiuppo stated on my talk page on polish wiki (pl:Dyskusja Wikipedysty:Kotasik) that he copied this image from website without any permission from the author(s). Kotasik 20:48, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Please restore the album coversEdit

Please read this: . --Steven Fruitsmaak 21:16, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes, the link seems dead. I've registered on the forum and trying to track it down right now, just give me a sec. Anyway I don't think I'll find it, you can delete and I'll upload to en.wikipedia under fair use of album covers. Commons has undeletion, I hope? --Steven Fruitsmaak 21:49, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
I can't find a proper document where they have released their images. I trust it to be true however, cause the band dumps all their music on mp3, promotes file sharing trough P2P,... Anyway please delete all the Gorki-images until I have actually found a release letter. Thank you for your understanding.--Steven Fruitsmaak 22:02, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
Thx. I've sent the band a new request.--Steven Fruitsmaak 00:46, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

WWI-era imagesEdit

Hello, I see you zappped three images (I, II and III) as unsourced. They did have the unscourced tag on them too even though they are part of a larger deletion discussion (as it says here). While I like to see finally some input in the matter I'd hoped that the entire matter could be resolved in its entirety. Cheers, Scoo 07:27, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

If it's not too much of a hassle, please do. Certainly there is a risk that they must migrate to under some kind of {{Old-might-be-copyrighted}}, but I'm hopeful. If you have an opinion, please do voice it (the interest so far in the matter sweeps one off one's feet ;). Regards, Scoo 09:22, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Why did you delete the article entitled The Sweetest Day Hoax? How was it "not an article"? Miracleimpulse 19:54, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Move my user pageEdit

Hi, Nilfanion! I'd like to move ny user page Albedo-ukr with Albedo. It's real? Can you help me? And another question. Where can I ask help on Commons, so, as I saw, my user task is not for this. Sincerelly--Albedo-ukr 03:21, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

In general renaming of users can be requested at Commons:Changing username. As the User Albedo exists already (see Special:Contributions/Albedo) it is not possible renaming you to that new name. In case you own both accounts it is also not possible merging them. So sorry we can't help you. Arnomane 09:27, 16 September 2006 (UTC)


It seem in "lastest files" that an user upload sex fellatio at 13:12 pm on September 16 and others sex images with your name.
Looking at your contributions It seem that you upload nothing at 13:12 pm.

We get a big trouble ! Yug (talk) 13:50, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Maybe .... You just reverted it, and that appear in "Last upload" ? So that's not a vandals uploading with your speudo.... Yug (talk) 13:54, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

I've noticet the same weird thing, also with Bastique. I don't get it... Erina 17:48, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Before anyone else asks: I was reverting a user who had been censoring images. See Special:Undelete/Image:Fellatio1.jpg. If you look in my upload log you can see I did those reverts. The user in question was indef blocked [3]. Hope that helps explain the mess.--Nilfanion 20:10, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi, please check the images you tagged me and tell me if they are right or something is missing:

You have deleted that file. Please tell me what was the problem with that? Is there a difference between album covers and book covers [4]? --Hanna V 20:04, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Including addressEdit

Regarding, Captain John Palliser Elementary School. I think its important that for all pictures of buildings, we include the precise address of the building. We should be providing the maximum amount of information about pictures we provide (I uploaded the school pictures). For instance, many schools have multiple addresses over the course of their life. Sometimes, they're demolished and rebuilt, with the same name, close to, but at a new location. We should keep track precisely of which/what building we have a picture of. If I had more time, I'ld be even more precise in the location of what's in the particular picture, but the quickest approach, is to copy/paste the address. I'm not including this as "contact information". I do agree with you that we don't want to include contact info, but that wasn't my purpose (note, I didn't have stuff like phone numbers, fax, email, etc...). --Rob 05:28, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

{{Duplicate}} is only for exactly identical imagesEdit

I saw that you replaced the template duplicate by the template superseded (e.g. Image:Zar.jpg) with the comment {{Duplicate}} is only for exactly identical images. That is wrong. In the first line of the template you can read This image is an exact duplicate or scaled-down version of blabla. Would you please consider this in the future? --jed 06:13, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

You did the same thing with Image:Senegal coa.gif. I contest the idea that two images in different file formats cannot be duplicates: An indexed GIF and an indexed PNG are AFAIK exactly identical in terms of data. -- Himasaram 12:49, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
You did the same with Image:Bathyporeia pelagica.png and others. Why would you keep a low res .png, if a high quality (low compression) and high res .jpg version of the same file is uploaded? The .jpg was the original output b.t.w. Lycaon 21:57, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

{{Duplicate}} is only for exact dupes and scaled-down versions. Any variation (explicitly including different filetypes) has to be nominated for deletion through COM:DEL. I am just replacing the incorrect duplicate tag with a correct superseded tag. If you want them deleted, nominate them (add {{Delete}} and follow that process. However, I am not going to speedily delete such images and nor should any other admin following the current guidelines.--Nilfanion 22:02, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

I'd like to direct your attention to Image:Canada quebec.svg which is a special case, since it is identical with the very first revision of Image:Flag of Quebec.svg (18:46, 15 November 2005). I made a note about it under the duplicate tag. --Himasaram 13:37, 23 September 2006 (UTC)


Hi! i've been creating Łomża page at PL.Wiki project and when i saw your change there i was schocked :!:
You changed one graphic, that's ok, BUT You also removed essential links to public schools (Education thread), that's nonsense link
i'll change that but please don't interfere in articles in language You don't know at minimum pre-advance level :/ patrol110 14:05, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

about your ability to talk in polish, just write in your native language :D Cheers patrol110 15:02, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

{{Name your images}} moved to {{Please name images}}Edit

I've moved the template you've created from en: so that its name will be closer to the ones of existing templates (see Category:Message templates). As {{Name your images}} is not linked from anywhere it may be deleted: I see that you're an admin so I suggest you that you do that :)

Check pleaseEdit

The image Pennsylvania Lingyen may have been a duplicate, but over on the English wikipedia the sudden disapperence of this particular photo created some confusion since it was featured there. I am not blaming for the incident, mistakes do happen, but next time could you maybe check first to see where the image is being used? 23:36, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Oh damn, I feel really stupid now. :( I have been dealing with hundreds of these images, I must have fallen asleep on that particular image or something... By the way, I assume you are an en.wp user - could you provide a link to your talk page when posting here as an anon (I don't know who you are after all...).--Nilfanion 23:48, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

{{Hurricane auto track map}}Edit

I think I'm very confused by a probably very humourous thing you did. You changed {{Hurricane auto track map}} from PD to PD-magic. As this concerns a huge amount of images, could you please explain why you did this? PD-magic is IMO a very confusing template that should not be allowed. Cheers! Siebrand 07:47, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi, the template is a daft joke that belongs in Commons version of en:WP:BJAODN. I picked the hurricane template as all but a very few of the images tagged with it are my own work. For now, PD-magic includes the fine print of PD-Self (the correct tag for those images) so isn't very harmful. However, I'll rv that change soon, don't worry ;)--Nilfanion 10:34, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the explanation. Please be aware that changing a template that is used on many, many pages requires a change for those many pages that is processed through the job queue. I recommend not be participate in too many jokes like this as it may create precedence... Siebrand 11:03, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I won't be daft in future. Thankfully the Commons job queue is generally light. As an aside, I think it may be worthwhile to subst the hurricane template, as it has been incorrectly modified by users wanting an update to a specific storm...--Nilfanion 11:15, 25 September 2006 (UTC)


Hello Nilfanion, you removed the nld tag from these two images, commenting "license fine Permanent structure in de...":

Why would not need a licence for these images? To me, they seem like interior shots of an copyrighted architectural work. It's private ground, too. Inside views of the Berlin stadion have long been the classical example in the German WP's article on image rights of what freedom of panorama does not cover. Cheers, Wikipeder 07:54, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Need image fixesEdit

There definitely is something wrong with storing old images in the file history. It often breaks the image. Can you clear these two: Image:TSJose_2005.jpg and Image:Td192005.jpg? Also these have been looking at me really shifty: Image:HurricaneKenna2002.jpg and Image:Tropical_Storm_Zeta_2005.jpg. Just clear out the whole history on these. That feature isn't any good. Good kitty 20:56, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Illegal deletion of my images own workEdit

Can you tell why you delete my images like Manipur revolution flag. If you dont understand catalan is your problem. I dont speak english, but I stated clearly in message that was my own work (as 90% of the complicate flag images in the web). Please restore the file inmediately and please dont act with illegal actions in the future. Theres people that is moving from wikipedia due this illegal actions -- 19:07, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

There's never anything illegal about the deletion of an image, irrespective of its value. If you are referring to Image:FPRM Manipur.png, I deleted it as duplicate of Image:Bandera FPRM Manipur.png; we don't need two copies of the same image. As for any other images, I can't comment on them without knowing what image you are referring to (I'm guessing you are a logged-in user who forgot to sign in).--Nilfanion 19:41, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Deleting "Image:Nyhus Pappa 04.jpg" etc.Edit

You apparently deleted my uploaded file Image:Nyhus Pappa 04.jpg because of a copyvio book scan. This file was made by me as the author, illustrator and graphic designer of this Norwegian children's book, and I consider the image in low resolution to be of no violation against copyright laws of the publishing house. I therefore hope we can keep similar files under lisence self2|GFDL|cc-by-sa-2.5,2.0,1.0. Or am I misinformed? ́́--Wolfmann 18:13, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

You have deleted some of my other image files as well. As the originator of these files I published them under the same free license as for Image:Nyhus Pappa 04.jpg. Please restore these files immediately. Thanks! --Wolfmann 18:32, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
Oh my, oh my! Why do you delete files like Egil Nyhus Carl I Hagen.jpg? They were uploaded under a free license for non-commercial use. Or don't wikimedia commons have this type of license anymore? Once again: Please restore. --Wolfmann 18:32, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
Commons does not allow "non-commercial" use. Nilfanion cannot restore. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 18:36, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

Deleted as a copyvio, promotional pics are not acceptable on Commons.--Nilfanion 21:53, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Image:Lxx Minorprophets.gifEdit

hmm, the pictures are completely identical. The fileformat shouldn't really make a difference.

I just read the deletion guidelines again and it only states that vector graphics don't supersede normal bitmaps, which is of course true. But nothing is said there between two different bitmap file types. I would think that the file compression shouldn't make a difference. ;)

I mean I don't wanna be a pain in the *** and all, and don't really care that much if the picture gets deleted now or in a week, but you really made me curious about this. Because if you don't see it from a technical point of view the pictures are identical ;) --Werckmeister 19:52, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Image:Mitac mio a701.jpgEdit

How do I supply the licence? I got it from the imagebank of the mio-tech official homesite. I asked in an e-mail specifically if I was allowed to use the image on wikipedia and I was confirmed that all images in that database are for public use. I do understand that wikimedia is very strict in it's policy about copyrights, but I thougt in this case that I did enough to verify that the picture was publishable. I'll give you the link to the 'Press section' of the website: you can find the link to the imagebank here. If you know how to gain the correct copyright information, please let me know.

Image Tagging Image:Picswiss_SZ-29-29.jpgEdit

I don't understand this notification, the source is clearly specified in the description page (Picswiss), the author is specified as well. Dake 20:49, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Ok, I guess you are refering to the inner picture and not the container. Please confirm. Dake 20:55, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
I more or less agree (to me, it is sufficient to know the page and the canton, a direct link is a "detail for convienence"), but please don't tag the other pictures I have uploaded from Picswiss, I hope I can fix the problem. The filenames match those of Picswiss, the only problem being the "Picswiss_" I have added, which afaik will be difficult to process without going through all images with a bot.... Dake 10:23, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
I somehow fixed your problem, see Image:Picswiss BS-46-03.jpg (do not forget to purge). I have added in the template a search link to Google images that uses the filename, but the user must remove the "Picswiss_" to make a correct search. This will be enhanced when the meta:StringFunctions will be available on Commons, as it will be easy to remove that prefix. (don't know when it will be available). Otherwise if this is not satisfying, I would be forced to go with a bot through all the pictures I have uploaded yet... The pictures that I will upload from now on won't have this issue. Dake 11:31, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

"Image:Book Gernsback Ralf 1964 Russian.jpg"Edit

You have deleted this image because "it has not been edited for 156 days", according to your comment. Please explain, your meaning is obscure to say the least. 06:26, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

The reason is it was a {{PD-Soviet}} image - Commons no longer accepts those. The 156 days shows that it hasn't been modified in ages.--Nilfanion 12:46, 7 October 2006 (UTC)


Hello, you recently deleted these images with the following comment (In category PD Soviet; not edited for 24 days). They were properly sourced and had the Pd-Soviet tag? They weren't even marked for deleteion? Edit: So Pd-Soviet can no longer be used on commons?--Eupator 15:28, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

PD-Soviet is not acceptable on Commons see Commons:Deletion requests/Template:PD-Soviet.--Nilfanion 15:31, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Images deletedEdit

Can you explain me why you have deleted these following images :

  • Image:Great white shark South Africa.jpg
  • Image:Requin Universal Studios Orlando.jpg
  • Image:Jaws tatoo.jpg
  • Image:Jaws ride Universal Studios Florida.jpg"

You have just written : copyvio flickr source is -nc-nd

I don't understant, there are mant Flickr images with the same kind of copyright.

To answer me, you can do it in english or french.

Thank you. Kuxu76 23:08, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your comments in Lar's recent RfA!Edit

Dear Nilfanion: I would like to thank you for your support in my recent RfA which passed 20 to 1. I really appreciate the trust you've placed in me. Please help me be a better admin by giving me feedback when you think I need it, and praise when you think I've earned it. I am glad you gave me that tip, and that it went in the permanent record because it's very important. I look forward to noming or supporting your en:wp adminship soon. Take care and thanks again. ++Lar: t/c 03:41, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
I chose LEGO to illustrate my thank you messagess, because LEGO is a system that we build things with. Commons holds the building blocks that other wikis use to make great things. Without Commons images and media, other wikis would be much poorer. Let's help build the greatest freely available intellectual collection the world has ever known... together.

Image:Inflatable-boats-from-the-gree.jpg - could you possibility undeleteEdit

Hi, I'm Bawolff (wikinews admin), I was wondering if the image you deleted - Image:Inflatable-boats-from-the-gree.jpg with comment copyvio non-commercial, was just deleted because it couldn't be used commercially, if you could temporarily undelete it for wikinews (until I upload locally), as we used it in several articles, and we can have non-comercial images. Thanks Bawolff 21:53, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

I've uploaded it locallly. you can delete now. Thanks Bawolff 23:13, 13 October 2006 (UTC)


Siento no poder expresarme bien en Ingles, pero la imagen es oficial y pertenece al archivo libre de CIDAM. Ver "CIDAM" en la wikipedia en español. La Ley española 38/1995 sobre el derecho de acceso a la información en materia de medio ambiente, se ajusta a la directiva europea 90/313/CEE,la cual exige que el contenido referido al Medio Ambiente en poder de las administraciones públicas es de uso libre. Asi pues, la descripción que pongo en el archivo es correcta. Los datos que posee la administración son de su propiedad para uso público y por tanto en este caso, no tienen autor. Por último, la imagen convertida a JPG ha sido tratada por mi. (Espero que me hayas entendido!). Gracias y un saludo. Gafotas 01:04, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

  • estimado Nilfanion. Veo que has contestado un mensaje posterior al mio y que el mio sigue sin respuesta. En caso de no recibir alguna, entenderé que puedo eliminar la advertencia que pusiste en mi imagen. Un saludo. Gafotas 15:50, 14 October 2006 (UTC)


Why was this image deleted? The english-spoken Wikipedia is using it, anyway:

Sigh... was using it under Fair Use - which is unacceptable here.--Nilfanion 15:14, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Image cancelled for copyviolEdit

Hi. A few days ago you have deleted a pic I had uploaded (namely Image:RobertSmith SimonGallup Imola2004.jpg) for copyvio TV screenshot (see [5]). I'd like to explain that pic: it is not a tv screenshot, but i took it live during the show, from the audience, pointing to the big screens that are next to the stage, because i liked the particular image. I hope this makes it different from a "normal" tv screenshot, and, if you'll let me, I'd like to upload it again.

Office protection?Edit

I see you have placed Office protection on articles. Should w:WP:OFFICE be updated? (That says that User:Danny is the person currently authorized to put in this form of temporary protection.) --InfantGorilla 01:58, 17 October 2006 (UTC) copied from my Talk page:

The office protection here was done at the explicit request of BradP on IRC. They don't actually have sysop rights here and decided to be nice and work through the commons admins as opposed to using steward powers to do it.--Nilfanion 02:00, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Thought it was something like that - lets edit w:WP:OFFICE to reflect that. --InfantGorilla 02:04, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Wikipedia is not Commons. We cannot edit a Wikipedia policy to govern a Commons action. Office actions are done at the behest of Wikimedia Foundation staff.

Maybe a Template:Office (or whatever the project namespace here is) would be better? ~Kylu (u|t) 02:42, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice and sorry of waste your time.

Sorry for my english. --Equi 01:40, 19 October 2006 (UTC)


Hi, my english is not perfect but i'll make the try. You have recently deleted some images i have uploades. A couple of hours ago i sent the email with the license to use them. I have been told that, when it arrives, you could restore them - for example: Coloso.jpg - and the others i uploaded. Please restore them, so we can used them in the spanish article. For any cuestion, ask me whatever you need. Thanks. --Fede5 20:25, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I hace sent for he second time the email with the license to use these images (user: Alhen told me you needed it again with the correct license). Please restore the ones you erased that I uploaded, because the email (and the license in it) tells they are available to be used. I will wait for your answer al possitive restorating of the images.

Image:Subtropical Storm Nicole (2004).jpg, Image:Hurricane Rita 22 sept 2005 1655Z.jpg, and Image:Hurricane Danielle (2004).jpg.

PS. Commons:Deletion_requests/2006/11/04 is where I apparently broke something when adding the category. I thought I was following the instructions, which I apparently wasn't, after all. Thx again.

Redlinks on CommonsEdit

Hi! When a picture used on my home project (nn:) was deleted, I noticed that there was still at least one page here on Commons that used it -- in other words, a page with a red link to the image [7]. This does not look good. I highly recommend delinking these things at Commons, since as far as I know, there's no CommonsTicker for Commons itself. --Ranveig 10:13, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

You did this again with Ice cream [8]. Like I said, it's not very good for Commons. --Ranveig 19:23, 20 November 2006 (UTC)


When singing off images, check for EXIF metadata, and similar photos in the stream. You approved which is clearly a copyvio. Thanks, ed g2stalk 16:35, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

please check usage before deletionsEdit

Hi Nilfanion, in the last few days you deleted some images of the soviet space program, but you forgot to check usage of those images before deleting, resulting in many broken images in other projects. So please check usage before deletions, and remove the images that are supposed to deletions from pages in other projects which use them. thank you, 13:15, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

It would help if you had a user account here then I could reply to you directly and stated which project you "come" from. All the major projects have a CommonsTicker (with the sole exception of en.wikipedia), which is designed to let commons admins get along with their work without worrying about the orphaning - the local editors can do that. In the case of the Soviet images those were all liable to speedy deletion and have been for the past 2 months (due to a policy change), so projects had plenty of warning.--Nilfanion 18:11, 18 November 2006 (UTC)


I scanned it myself. What else should I do so that it would not be deleted? Athkalani 21:54, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Image:D'Annunzio in Fiume.jpgEdit

Why was Image:D'Annunzio in Fiume.jpg deleted? Given the date of the event, it is almost certainly public domain (unless it was not published at the time, which given its nature seems unlikely).

If you respond here, please also ping my user talk page, either here or on en:, since I don't really use a watchlist on Commons. Thanks. - en:Jmabel | talk 03:39, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

I've replied at your en talk page.--Nilfanion 17:53, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the info about getting email when my user talk is hit, I'll turn that on.
So, in short, the issue is that we have to show that the image was published at the time? I'm quite certain it was, but that is going to be tough to prove. I'll try to track one down (possibly not the same one) for which we can be sure of that. - en:Jmabel | talk 19:59, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Image:Italian ice cream.jpgEdit

Please see User talk:Ranveig#Image:Italian ice cream.jpg. --Ranveig 13:36, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi, my picture was deleted but nobody told me anything it was going to happen: shouldn't I be noticed about it?? I took it and I published it, so it could remain in commons. Moreover it was quite nice, and it was used in several other wikimedia projects: can you recover it?? Alessio Damato 16:55, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! --Ranveig 18:44, 22 November 2006 (UTC)


Moin Nilfarion. User:Melanom asked this already further above. You answered him, but you missed his point. Why have admins to do the check in the Category:Flickr review needed? Why couldn't a automated bot driven by a trustworthy user do this checks? The bot only has to access the Flickr side which is linked on the image description and to check the licence tag, which is easily accessible through the source code of that page. You then only have to add some functionality to be sure the two photos are the same, but in the end this should work more accurate than checking by hand through admins. --::Slomox:: >< 17:32, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

There is indeed a bot working now on the category. The maintenance pagse need some updating to reflect that. Admin (or some other class of trusted user) backup is still needed due to the different images; see Commons:Administrators/Requests and votes/FlickreviewR.
As luck would have it I today found an image which was bot-reviewed. Then my question is obsolete. Thanks for the answer. I updated the text in the category. --::Slomox:: >< 14:43, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Anonymous workEdit

Hi Nilfanion. In your closing statement, when you wrote "The fact that it is misused or badly phrased does not mean that the template itself is valid", did you in fact mean invalid?

Just checking... Fred Chess 23:50, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Flickr businessEdit

Thanks for your comments on the debate regarding Image:Holdem.jpg at undeletion requests. You mentioned there that you would like to have a discussion on how to handle images that may have been licensed under CC but are not currently tagged as such. If such a discussion begins somewhere, would you mind dropping me a line (preferably at en.wikipedia) regarding this? I must say that I was very frustrated with the way the situation was handled in my case, and I would like to contribute to a discussion of policy here. Thanks. --Kzollman 09:35, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Star Wars-imagesEdit

Hi! I've noticed that you've deleted a lot of images that I've taken on a Star Wars-exhibition in france, that had a lot of film material from the star wars films. I guess that they aren't copyrighted, because I photographed them. Please restore this images, they are quite valueable for the Star Wars-articles. //moralist 13:32, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for deleting those photosEdit

Thanks for deleting those photos I flagged up at WP:AN/I on Wikipedia. I've now created myself an account here so I can easily post to the admin noticeboard here in future. I'm also starting to work out how to upload photos here so I can add some of the free images I'd found for Wikipedia.

Hi, some days ago I described a problem with the preloaded deletion debate link in Template:Delete. Since no one has reacted yet and you are the one who introduced it originally, could you have a look at this and maybe offer a fix? As I am not a sysop here I can't edit the template and besides I don't know enough about Substitution. Regards, High on a tree 20:30, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Image deletion - why?Edit

I see you have deleted Image:Aydilge.jpg reasoning that it had no source, whereas I HAVE put the source link and it had proper licensing as well. Haven't you seen the source or what? Thank you in advance for your answer. --Teemeah 14:21, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Ok, thank you. You're right, the picture url has changed since I checked it for the last time. I had written to her publisher at the time of requesting the photo and they agreed to publish it under a free licence (saying "whatever, we get promoted outsdide of Turkey" ) altough at that time it was not yet required to send the permission anywhere and the exact license type was not specified (just that it would be a free licence - but not promotional image licence). So - providing that I attach the permission to use it under free licence (with a translation of the letter), can I upload the photo again (or another)? --Teemeah 17:30, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Image: Kristoffer ZetterstrandEdit

This image was supposed to have been deleted 'ages' ago. But still remains as a search result on Google, etc. linked to [9]. Please - we need to get rid of it as it causing problems! Can you help? --Profero 07:51, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

These are all affected by that bug where old versions of the file are used for the thumbnails instead of the current versions.

{{Delete}} templateEdit

Hi. I recently made a lot of edits to the {{Delete}} template, as I notice you have done, I was wondering if you could take a moment to check my edits to see that the new coding hasn't malfunctioned, as I am not an expert.

Images and templatesEdit

Hi Nilfanion, I'm the user nazgul.sp on the portuguese wikipedia. I saw that you are removing links to images deleted from the commons, you´re doing a great job. Could you just delete the file and not the components of the template ? I think that it will be easier to add some legal image in the future.

Article with image to be deleted from commons:

  • | Capa = Stripped.JPG

The final result:

  • | Capa =

Question about linking to other languagesEdit

Hello. I have recently started writing Urdu articles for Wikipedia. I have some questions I wonder if you could answer for me.

1. When I make a new article I add the inter-language link to other the new Urdu page so you can see the English, French, Bengali version of the same page. But to add Urdu to their pages I have to go to each page and write ur:xxxx . Is there a better way to do it then going to 15 different sites and writing that? It would save time I'm sure. 2. My Tayaji and Chachaji are very old but they enjoy adding to this site. But the Urdu font used is set so tiny. Could we vote to increase the size as really it is almost unreadable for out older readers/contributers. And the Urdu font being so fine and dainty and so full of subtle movements an increase in size can only diminish the strain on all of our eyes. :) 3. Is there anyway a more pleasing Urdu font could be used? 4. Why are numbers on Urdu Wikipedia Western Style Numbers? Would it be possible to vote to change them to Urdu style numbers?

Milan kundera.jpgEdit

Why file Milan kundera.jpg was removed from commons? I don't use commons often, so I have no idea why did it happened. I didn't upload it, but I've used it in about 15(!) articles on, so it really makes a difference for me. With regards, Galileo01 11:11, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of images in Category:UnknownEdit


I only delete images which are in clear violation of Commons policies. Keeping these for a week encourage people to upload more images without following policies. Actually, I do this following pfctdayelise suggestion. See her message. Regards, Yann 22:35, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

The proofs that the images are free have to be given by the uploader. Hopefully, I don't have to prove that the image is a copyright violation, which is rather difficult, that why I don't tag deletion as "copyvio". I think therefore tagging deletion as "no source or/and no valid licence" (or "against policies" if you prefer) is the right thing to do. Regards, Yann 22:52, 8 February 2007 (UTC)


Hi! Your bot just tagged some images with {{Flickrreview}}, although I just reviewed them. I guess it's because my tag is written with first letter captialized {{Flickrreview}}. Example: Image:295336413_07a5f84c43.jpg Enricopedia 22:35, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

That's it. Everything reverted. Enricopedia 22:54, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Nilfabot editEdit

This edit broke the licensing transclusion. I assume that the bot is making similar edits to other images, but haven't checked. Cheers, - BanyanTree 22:41, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

It happened here as well. Is this expected behaviour? Jkelly 22:59, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Damn, this case sensitivity issue is a pain in the neck. Of course, I don't need to inspect the images to know cc-by and cc-by-sa are invalid licenses (Flickr uses the 2.0 variant after all) so these breakages will be fixed when the licenses are reviewed, but that's no excuse. I've stopped the bot run for now and will resume it tomorrow. For now I've created redirects at the targets of the bad edits...--Nilfanion 23:05, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

(... sorry for my english) Thank you Daplaza 17:59, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

NilfaBot - Error?Edit

Look at this change. The Bot set {{flickrreview}} after the template {{Flickr-change-of-license}} is set. --Atamari 19:27, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

This is not an error, flickr-change-of-license is a weaker form of this tagging system; deprecation of it will be worthwhile.--Nilfanion 19:32, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Deleted ImageEdit

You have deleted my image Pasquino 02. Can you please tell me why. I'm new here and don't know if I made a mistake.

That maybe, that I forgot the license. I took the photo by myself so it's the same license like for Pasquino 01. Thank you for restoring it. --Pippo-b 00:38, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
