It is important to keep a cool head, especially when responding to comments against you or your edits. Personal attacks and disruptive comments only escalate a situation; please keep calm and remember that action can be taken against other parties if necessary. Please try to remain civil with your comments. Thanks!

Rahaf Mohammed filesEdit

Hello Andy,

I don't understand why you keep deleting my videos and screenshots thereof about Rahaf Mohammed. All those videos are licenced under a Creative Commons 3.0 licence that is allowed on Wikimedia Commons. What am I doing wrong? Please explain. Nederlandse Leeuw (talk) 11:37, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

@Nederlandse Leeuw: I have not deleted anything. I have suggested that certain files be deleted, and neutral admins, who have agreed with me, have done so. The flies you mention have been uploaded to YouTube by people who do not own their copyright. Commons:License laundering explains. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:15, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
Ah ok, thanks for explaining. I'll try to be more careful in the future. Greetings, Nederlandse Leeuw (talk) 22:41, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Creator templatesEdit

Hi Andy, I noticed you created Creator:Emil Ludwig Schmidt and I just wanted to let you know that I have removed this step from my workflow. After discussing at the Women Techstorm with Multichill and Amir, the added overhead that these files give to Commons is not worth the effort, since the info is dynamically created now with SDoC. I was also creating them with much less overhead anyway, just using Magnus' creator tool. I took this off my d:userpage because of that. Thanks for creating Schmidt's item! Jane023 (talk) 10:56, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

I didn't create Creator:Emil Ludwig Schmidt; I moved it from Creator:Emil Schmidt; then fixed the latter to reflect its actual usage. All SDoC does at present is hold captions. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:32, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Ah OK and yes that's true about "just captions" still. If a creator template is once created I tend to leave them alone and reuse them too. SDoC has launched with captions, but the idea is to mesh with Wikidata. So the structure for artists (as I have come to understand it) is to 1) make the Commons category 2)create the Q5 if it's not there and add the category and 3) make an item for at least one work before going back to Commons and adding Mike's Wikidata infobox to the category and the Qid to the file for the work. When this is done, then even without a creator template the creator will show up in the work file info as if one were there. I expect (not sure about this) this will happen with SDoC : for files of works without wikidata items, this dynamically created creator summary will appear there too (because otherwise you need that template).

@Patrick Rogel: I suggest you take that up with the WMF; see the source given. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 23:18, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
It's not a matter of source; it's a question of permission: "Courtesy of Lisa Lewin" is not a valid one. Moreover because the same image can be found under an unfree license ( prior of being uploaded here, please ask Lisa Lewin to send a permission via COM:OTRS. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 23:27, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
@Patrick Rogel: Again: I suggest you take that up with the WMF. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 23:30, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
I've removed the permission-missing notice, since the license is given in the source. If that's an issue, I suggest taking it to a deletion discussion. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 22:26, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
