Our first steps tour and our frequently asked questions will help you a lot after registration. They explain how to customize the interface (for example the language), how to upload files and our basic licensing policy (Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content). You don't need technical skills in order to contribute here. Be bold contributing here and assume good faith for the intentions of others. This is a wiki — it is really easy.
More information is available at the community portal. You may ask questions at the help desk, village pump or on IRC channel #wikimedia-commons (webchat). You can also contact an administrator on their talk page. If you have a specific copyright question, ask at the copyright village pump.
Are you intentionally trying to repeal all of my uploads and edits? Signatures cannot be CC. They are allowed. And to the images that are not signatures, I have given ample amount of information about the source, and CC code, etc. Why are you trying to revoke them?

- Because none of them have permission. You can't just lie about an image being CC licensed (and if you persist in doing so, I expect you will be blocked, and good riddance). Uploading copyrighted images without permission is - like most of your edits - actively damaging. There is a risk of the actual owner of the image sueing Commons.

Hi I have noticed that a lot of my photos have a notice that reads "Spurious upload rationale - unlikely to be "own work" since the subject is in the photo." I would like to clarify that yes the subject Joseph Carrillo "me" is in the photo, but I had a family member John Carrillo use my camera. Do I need to update the rights on these photos 📷? If so what do I update them to? Josephwcarrillo (talk) 19:27, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
- Then they're not your own work, are they? You would need evidence of the photographer's permission; evidence of permission does not mean "just claim to have permission", but I suggest you leave them alone, since the draft Wikipedia article they feature in is never going to be approved.

- Commons clearly documents the requirements there. You'll have to do your own reading. Pinkbeast (talk) 21:46, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Can I attribute a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 using Flickr? This photo is also on flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/alistcelebrity/44154592174/in/dateposted-public/ and my other photos are on flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/alistcelebrity/ Josephwcarrillo (talk) 20:39, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
- That seems to be another case of you simply claiming you have permission, without any evidence to that effect. Pinkbeast (talk) 21:22, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
- As I said above, it's documented on Commons. You should have read the material about copyright before uploading anyway, so go and read it now. I am not wasting time spoonfeeding you for images for which you probably don't have permission and which have no actual use. Pinkbeast (talk) 00:39, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
