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 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)

@Marchjuly: The "endofcopyvios" notice is has multi-language links, so we can assume that they chose to ignore it. Block applied and other images tagged. Ronhjones  (Talk) 15:01, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for taking a look. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:05, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Uploading a pictureEdit

hello, it seems that whenever i upload a picture it's somehow violating the copyright laws/rules. This is become quite inconvenient as there are no clear instructions as to how to upload a picture properly. I always pick a picture that has is on google and is clearly for public use yet it gets removed. Please help and explain what to do since I'm on my final warning. Thanks.

@AbdulRahman1997: Images on google are "free to view", but not "free to use". You have to find an image that says "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License." and/or shows the cc-by-sa logo as seen on If you use Google Images then click "Tools" under the search box, then under "Usage Rights" select "Labelled for reuse with modification", you will find most of the images normally seen will vanish - probably >99% of images normally seen will not list under these conditions.

@Ronhjones: Well thank you for informing me about that, i really appreciate it. But, then, how am i supposed to even get a picture when nothing that i want exists on google after doing that "Labelled for reuse with modification" ? I mean I honestly wonder how on earth do the other users manage to find pictures to be honest lol. This is a lot more complicated than i expected. Thanks again though! AbdulRahman1997 (talk) 07:02, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
@AbdulRahman1997: Yup. If there is a usable picture on Google Images, chances are someone else would have found it first! Same with Flickr - suspect all the suitable images there are already here, and panoramio - we have a bot looking for free images automatically. The majority of new images that stay tend to be (useful) photographs actually taken by the user. Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:18, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Kalu PandeEdit

Mr. Ronhjones, Kalu Pande.jpg was published under Public Domain since all copyright has expired of the 18th Century painting. So I think no permission is required. What do you say? Best Wishes Thapa Kazi999 (talk) 04:37, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

source website has been protected. So, I have changed that unavailable source to an available site: so that you may see the same old copyright expired painting of Kaji Kalu Pande. So, I would request you to remove the permission tag.

Best Wishes Thapa Kazi999 (talk) 04:37, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Agreed - but it has been found to be a small duplicate of File:Portrait of Damodar Pande.jpg. The Commons Delinker will sort it out. Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:31, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Suppression logo groupe OCPEdit

Cher Ronhjones

Je me permets de vous contacter dans la mesure où vous avez supprimé le logo OCP que j'ai mis en ligne la semaine dernière pour cause de violation des droits d'auteur en citant le fait qu'un logo était déjà disponible sur Wikipedia. En effet, j'ai bien vu que l'image suivante était déjà sur la plateforme, ( cependant, je n'arrive pas à l'intégrer dans l'infobox pour la page anglaise OCP Group - Je vous serais très reconnaissant de m'indiquer la procédure à suivre si possible. Merci d'avance, Mister Mike (discuter)

@Mister Mike: I did it for you en:File:Ocp.jpg. Adding non free images to English Wikipedia is not easy to explain! The image needs to be of a certain maximum size, and have the correct templates. Also now in the article en:OCP Group Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:50, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much indeed! Have a great day, Mister Mike

File:RTP Internacional.pngEdit

Hi Ronjones. You deleted File:RTP Internacional.png as a non-free logo, but it has be re-uploaded by the same editor. They left a message at File talk:RTP Internacional.png, but it's not in English so I don't know what it says. The same editor has made a number of other posts on talk pages of files they have uploaded (re-uploaded?), but these are also not in English so I'm not sure what they say. Anyway, I'm wondering it you wouldn't mind taking a look at all of these files when you get a chance. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:38, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

@Marchjuly: Just deleted it as re-uploaded without deletion review - talk page said "This image is that of a logo created and used by the company Rádio e Televisão de Portugal, S.A., the public television of Portugal. This logo is available in the section of the RTP site, in, referring to the part of the graphic identities of the radios and the channels. In conclusion, this image is not a creation of its own, as already mentioned, in the description of it, and is given freely to anyone who wants to use it to illustrate the identity of the channel in question." - Thanks to Google Translate. says at the bottom of the page "C RTP, Rádio e Televisão de Portugal 2017" - no sign of any PD or CC license. Protected page against creation as well. Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:26, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for taking a look. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:58, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Out of process speedy deletion of logosEdit

Ronhjones, you recently speedy deleted the following files:

despiste these files has been discussed in an ongoing DRs, and ignored the   Keep vote by Thibaut120094 considering them bellow the COM:TOO, specially this, that seems very bellow the TOO even in France.

Could you explain your administrative action, and restore these files inmediately to follow the nromal DR process? --Amitie 10g (talk) 00:56, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

@Amitie 10g: That's very odd... I was going through the list at Category:Copyright violations, which is where I picked them up - how they were in that category, I've no idea. Sometimes the wiki software does strange things. Files restored. Maybe change the license to {{PD-textlogo}} of you think they are below the TOO? Ronhjones  (Talk) 02:28, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

File:Arrival of Iran Air Airbus A330-200 (EP-IJA) at Mehrabad International Airport (2).jpg and File:Arrival of Iran Air Airbus A330-200 (EP-IJA) at Mehrabad International Airport (15).jpgEdit

Hi, you deleted these two photos as being copyright violations, but they are in fact not. Homa was designed in 1961, and as per {{PD-Iran}} the logo fell out of copyright 30 years after being published (Iran Air is the legal entity which holds copyright). Could you please undelete. Homulka (talk) 06:09, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

@Homulka: OK, I've added that template as well under sub-heading of logo Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:47, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
