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


Hi Ronhjones, I just checked the files of user:مصعب. All these photos where taken during an Education Program Event that I participated in. We even gave each of the students a Wikipedia Coffee Mug each. Nothing wrong with phots or the license  :) . Regarding queen Rania Photos I tried calling the university to check the validity of the license, it seems I need to wait till after the weekend (Friday and Saturday in Jordan). For the time being, I closed the current deletion request.

Mosab (مصعب) is a very active admin on Arabic Wikipedia, we even had an article about him on the wikimedia blog. So I guess we need to slow down about the indefinite block. It looks like a simple misunderstanding, and communication slip from his side. Best regards. --Tarawneh (talk) 08:28, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

@Tarawneh:It not the first block for copyright issues otherwise I would have set a time. Not to mention the three images of Queen Rania, were all marked as "Own Work", which they clearly wasn't. I don't see that as a simple error. Also you may want to note that I found at least 2 more images in the December upload on other web sites earlier than upload, hence the mass request (which includes them). I suppose I will have to go through them one by one to tag out the copyright violations. Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:17, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Palazzopaure.jpg and File:Isolaviscontea.jpgEdit

Hi, if you look at the sources given in the speedy deletion template ( and, you will see that the uploaded pictures are cropped versions of the pictures available online, exactly as other uploads by the same user. Gpmat (talk) 18:20, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

@Gpmat:. Sorry - well spotted, that was a very subtle crop, not immediately obvious. Ronhjones  (Talk) 18:40, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi, isn't license icons at the bottom right of the image is not enough? If you'll confirm it is so, I will ask authors to create a page stating the license along with the image. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oleksii.matiiasevych (talk • contribs) 06:08, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the pointer, I've added a note in the template as well. Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:01, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Pierre BonteEdit


Vous avez demandé la suppression du portrait de Pierre Bonte, pour violation de copyright. Il s'agit de ma propre création. Il suffit de regarder le fichier EXIF associé à l'image. Mon nom figure dedans. En revanche, c'est le site qui l'a utilisée sans mon autorisation.... Merci Saadtazi — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saadtazi (talk • contribs) 13:36, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Web image is dated 05 November 2013 21:35:16 and has a copyright watermark. Anyone can change EXIF data. With an earlier web image, you will have to use COM:CONSENT to get the image permission agreed. Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:05, 22 February 2017 (UTC)


Hi Ronjones. You previously posted a note at User talk:Hishamhmk#Copyright violations advising Hishamhmk to be careful about the files they upload. I'm not sure whether the uploader didn't understand your message or simply decided to ignore it, but they just uploaded File:Amman International Stadium.jpg which seems to be another copyvio. They have also uploaded File:Yarmouk Uni Logo.png and File:Jordanian football league.png as "own work", but the files actually seem to be COM:FU. I've tagged the Getty photo as a copyvio. I was going to tag the logos as {{Logo}}, but figured I'd ask you here about them first. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:21, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
