User talk:Ronhjones

Hi there! To keep the flow of conversations, I like to keep threads on one page where possible. So, if you post a message here, I'll probably respond to it here - I do have e-mail alerts for this page. Conversely, if I post a message on your talk page, you can respond there if you wish; since I've edited your talk page I'll have it on my watchlist. Thanks!

If you wish to contact me privately you can email me


Another deletion requestEdit

Hello again. You handled a big deletion request for me a few weeks back for sound clips. I have now re-uploaded the sound clips at the correct length but the copyright holder has realized that they do not actually hold copyright on about 150 of them, so i have made another mass deletion request here. Once this is sorted we should be all done! I thought i would flag this with you as you dealt with my last request so efficiently. Many thanks, Jason Jason.nlw (talk) 13:33, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

File: ATRILogo.pngEdit

Hi Ron- I apologize for uploading incorrectly, as this is my first attempt at creating a new article with an image. I reached out to the org and got permission to use the logo, so I'm looking into how to re-upload with evidence of said permission. I have the email saying "yes, go ahead, here's the image," but after reading the copyright page, I think I may need to reach out with the formal template. Do you have any advice on this? Thanks very much. JPH001 (talk) 18:17, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

@JPH001: Yes, you are correct. There is quite a choice for this one.
  1. Get the copyright holder to send in the form at COM:CONSENT, to release it under a suitable license (e.g. CC-BY-SA-4.0) - backog on permissions is about 56 days, they will undeleted when permission has been validated.
  2. We could try undeltion and changing the license to {{PD-textlogo}} - it is a bit subjective, as it's then down to the editors whether it's has enough originality or not (COM:TOO), and that varies with country. There is a large graduation of colour in the "blue flash", is that eough for copyright - possibly not in USA (possiby yes where I live, but it is a US logo)
  3. Lastly, if this is only for en-wiki use, then go for the easy option and upload at en-wiki as a fair-use item - it's a logo, and it's size is OK with fair-use. Look at en:Template:Non-free logo and check the "What links here" to see pleanty of examples there. The only criteria that can be an issue, is that the image has to be in use in an article - draft/sandbox articles are not included - for those you have to wait until it is a full article before uploading.
If you want to try No.2 then let me know, if you go down No.3 and need help then let me know on en-wiki. Ronhjones  (Talk) 18:31, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
@Ronhjones: Thanks for this, Ron! I double-checked with the organization and they'd like it up on the Commons to be shared, so they sent a form in as you outlined in option 1. The Wiki volunteer asked for the image to be reuploaded for approval, so if you see the file again, it's at their request, not trying to skirt the process. Thanks for taking the time to walk me through this. It's very much appreciated. JPH001 (talk) 17:33, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Release rights is not available ?Edit

I upload my own files, I Release rights under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 4.0 license on your site and you still deleted, so strange! Really have no words for this :(

@SaschArt: It is not clear that you own the copyright to donate - any computer screenshot will be deleted as a derivative work. All editors are anonymous and we cannot link any user with a real person. If this is your software that is being shown then you can only donate the copyright by going to COM:CONSENT, where the OTRS team will validate your claim, and if valid will undelete the file.

Code issues in User:Ronhjones/Adds.jsEdit

Hi Ronhjones, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:Ronhjones/Adds.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 11 new jshint issues -- the page's status is now having ERRORS. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!

Amadeo image.Edit

Hi. The image is not copyrighted as I have asked the Municipality of Amedeo to update their Seal in a much higher resolution. Rex s dimaala (talk) 13:11, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

@Rex s dimaala: Every image is copyrighted at creation. If there is no copyright now, then you will have to use the correct licese to show it is not copyrighted - saying you own the copyright is clearly wrong.
