File:Finch ON.JPGEdit

Hi there. I notice you overwrote your original upload of this file with a different file. Was this intentional? If not, could you split the second upload to a new file? Also, could you provide date info for the new file, as I doubt that it was taken in June. Thanks. Mindmatrix 14:11, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

Ditto for File:Webbwood ON.jpg. Mindmatrix 15:33, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
  • @Mindmatrix: Yes both were intentional overwrites. I will update the dates later on. Regards, --P 1 9 9   16:55, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
OK, and thanks! Mindmatrix 17:09, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Welcome backEdit

If you're working on Workers' Day, can you have a look at the following uploads, please? Thanks. --E4024 (talk) 16:47, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi @E4024: Thank for welcoming me back. Why do you want me to look at these uploads? They appear to be OoS to me. --P 1 9 9   17:00, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
And from FB. They are occupying our space. :) --E4024 (talk) 17:17, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Ok. Is there a reason why you don't want to nominate them for deletion? Do you want me to do that? --P 1 9 9   17:23, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Deleted PageEdit

Hi P199, I just noticed that you deleted 3 files I uploaded:,_maple_syrup_and_hockey_on_coloring-page.jpg&action=edit&redlink=1

I checked but I'm not sure which law has been violated? I created all 3 submitted images and I'm the owner of two websites where these pictures are published.

What should I do in this situation to have them republished?

Hi @Janmarian83: The website that you took the images from clearly states "All rights reserved" (= copyvio). Being the website owner is irrelevant, you need to prove that you are the creator of the images, and you need to send that proof using an OTRS ticket, see COM:OTRS. Regards, --P 1 9 9   19:33, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

Source of derivative work - Plaza Cuartel markersEdit

I added the appropriate tag for both images: Pi3.124 (talk) 22:29, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

@Pi3.124: That is not sufficient. There is no credit to the original portrait photographers. And what evidence is there that the images were indeed released as PD? --P 1 9 9   01:49, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

I discussed the origin of the photographs with the daughter and granddaughter on the phone and they sent the following email to me:


Original Message-----

From: jennifer ancheta [1] Sent: Saturday, May 11, 2019 5:27 AM To: xxxxx Subject: Picture of Nazario B Mayor

The picture has no copyright. The picture was found in his album of pictures that he had by his oldest daughter Nelllie Loudon Mayor Loleng. There was no date or writing on the back of it. He had quite a few pictures of himself as he loved to freeze time and frequently wrote about the time in his life when it was taken. Usually something profound. This had nothing. We FaceTimed our family in the Philippines to ask and they all said it was my Aunt who submitted it and there’s no info. Any person that would have taken that picture has probably left the earth to a heavenly state by now

Please let me know if any other questions come up. We are happy to reinvigorate his legacy

. Jennifer Mayor Ancheta James

@Pi3.124: Please follow the instructions at COM:OTRS. Thanks. --P 1 9 9   13:00, 13 May 2019 (UTC)


The image is not copyrighted. The images are own.

Please, let me know if any other question comes up. We are happy to revitalize your legacy.

  • @WebOn HN: You need to add your comments at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by WebOn HN (not here). Clearly explain why the images are not copyrighted and why you say they are your own even though the EXIF data credits other people. And finally, removing the deletion tag before the discussion is closed, is considered vandalism. --P 1 9 9   14:12, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Mottechaix - 1886.pdfEdit

Please also fix license tag. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 21:37, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

@EugeneZelenko: Thanks for the reminder. Done. --P 1 9 9   13:04, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Please take second lookEdit

Greetings! Re: Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Микола1984леон Please take second look, it seems only some of the files were closed. Thank you!! Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:20, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ellin Beltz:   Done. --P 1 9 9   20:07, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the picture of Fassett, QuebecEdit

Have just linked to it in a new article about a court case over the railway line, and there it is, a perfect picture of the railine to illustrate the article. Canadian Pacific Railway Co. v Notre Dame de Bonsecours Thanks! Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 15:54, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

File:Northbound lane of Jhongli IC on the Taiwan No1 National Highway.JPGEdit

Please look at your edits at 15:01, 30 October 2018. If you take a closer look at the picture you can see that the A-pillar of the car at the lower-right. I don't see any reason for it to be removed, so could you please explain why?--Kai3952 (talk) 17:53, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@P199: What do you think?--Kai3952 (talk) 11:35, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
@Kai3952: The visible piece of the A-pillar is so small, it's inconsequential, it doesn't define the image. --P 1 9 9   12:59, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
Look at what you said earlier: "It is simpler to just add a description to the page that clarifies that a portion of the vehicle must be visible." The A-pillar is a portion of the automobile. Why do you think that it is "inconsequential"? Even if the visible piece of the A-pillar is so small, we can still see it in the picture. So...where is your standard? --Kai3952 (talk) 17:47, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
What's your point? You already put back the category a long time ago. This is a totally moot discussion... --P 1 9 9   20:06, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
I have expected that you would follow what you said, that's what my point is. Now I am worried that you may have made the same mistake elsewhere. I have to take the time to check your every edit.--Kai3952 (talk) 21:16, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

@P199: Look at your edits. Just as I expected would happen, you have made the same mistake elsewhere. The car hood can be seen at the bottom of the picture(to me that is clear), so I don't know why you didn't see it.--Kai3952 (talk) 05:09, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of The_4_Mimff_books_by_H.J._Kaeser.jpg,Edit

Hi, This is about 18 months late! Please advise why you appeared to remove a photo THAT I TOOK of the four books by H. J. Kaeser to illustrate that writer's Wikipage/? Thanks in anticipation. Arrivisto (talk) 11:05, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

@Arrivisto: Yes, you took the photo, but you don't own the copyright of the illustrations in the photo, read COM:DW. --P 1 9 9   13:07, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of House illustrationsEdit

Hi, I just read Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Illustrations of the cast of House (television programme) following the automatic removal of these pictures from Wikipedia. I don't have access to all of them, but I do remember the looks of File:House graffiti.jpg.

Doesn't it comply with Commons:Fan art#There is no copyright in an actor's likeness? Tomer T (talk) 19:01, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

@Tomer T: Restored File:House graffiti.jpg as per Commons:Deletion requests/File:House graffiti.jpg. As per the COM:FAN: " if the fan art drawing is a wholly new creative representation showing the actor’s natural likeness plus some non-creative allusion to the original work, it can be accepted". The rest are clearly not wholly new. Regards, --P 1 9 9   19:26, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
However, it does not "copy creative elements from the movie". What do you suggest to do? Reopen a deletion discussion for this image? What's the protocol for that? Tomer T (talk) 19:33, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
You had more than a month-and-a-half to comment on the DR. We can't start a discussion after the DR closed. The protocol is to ask for undeletion, see COM:UNDEL. Regards, --P 1 9 9   13:10, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:KurtBeckJohannesRau.jpgEdit

Hello P199. It is not the small image that I worry. What I wanted to point out is that there is a human head that does not exist between the sitting people, and that we can not see the hairstyle that the person sitting behind can see. This photograph is clearly a collage and it is impossible for the uploader to shoot. And this uploader's images has been deleted in large quantities. I do not think that he made this collage with his material. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but please check again.--Y.haruo (talk) 16:43, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

@Y.haruo: I don't see the clear evidence of a collage. Yes I see that there are some persons mostly blocked from view by others. But the image is so small and with little depth perspective, and depending on just the right camera position, it is possible to get funny/strange anomalies in pictures. It is not conclusive to me. If you still feel strongly about it, I suggest to get a 3rd opinion. Regards, --P 1 9 9   17:06, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Let's wait for the third party's opinion.--Y.haruo (talk) 17:35, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
The discussion on Administrators' noticeboard is over. For more information see Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive 74#Commons:Deletion requests/File:KurtBeckJohannesRau.jpg. By the way, I removed this image from wikipedia excluding the Hebrew version on June 27th. (I did not know the location of the Hebrew version of the image.) The reason is "useless file like collage". Two weeks have passed, but no one has restored this file. I find this to be a true third-party view. The fact that this file remains is of course negative for Commons, but I think it is also negative for the uploader. The fact that this file remains is to leave a black mark permanently for the uploader. Please let me know your opinion if you have that.--Y.haruo (talk) 20:29, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
Sorry @Y.haruo: but there is no third opinion at the AN. Achim merely concludes that fotoforensics can be fooled, but it's very hard to do so. And Túrelio states it's highly improbable that this user would claim something untrue. You are still the only one arguing for its deletion. I will take no further action on this file. Regards, --P 1 9 9   01:30, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Standard Model of Elementary Particles outlines.svgEdit

You have deleted the file without proper discussion or responses to the deletion request. A random nomination is certainly not enough to delete someone's work from Wikimedia Commons, yes? The nomination is basically just a I-don't-like-it plea. Please give a real reason. Cush (talk) 21:54, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

@Cush: It was deleted because it was a (near) duplicate of an existing file without any purpose. That is a deletion reason. If you felt that it should not be deleted, well, you didn't provide any argument to keep it at the DR. --P 1 9 9   14:34, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
The purpose is use by third parties, as mentioned in the DR. Cush (talk) 15:53, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Deletion requests Orgosolo Murales Giovanni Leone.jpgEdit

Although it is a work of public domain, given the cancellation request, i the Mayor of Orgosolo for authorization via PEC(Certified email). The administration of Orgosolo has not communicated any prohibition. So we must wait. You are not the Law and you do not know the Italian rules. The cancellation report was made in a completely arbitrary manner. Please, as the administration of Orgosolo has not communicated prohibitions, restore the page. Thank you. --Dino Michelini (talk) 12:08, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Making a picture usefulEdit : actually, the vehicles have not been identified (just who owns them), and the picture remains without any categories that are particularly relevant to what it shows, and with a near-useless description. - Jmabel ! talk 03:45, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
