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!

Bonjour monsieurEdit

J'ai rjoute les photos que vous aviez supprimees j'aimerais que vous lisiez ma presentation ici : soiree Bien cordialement, User:PELERIN 2 CHRETIENTE (moved from User:Ronhjones --Guanaco (talk) 21:42, 26 June 2018 (UTC))

@PELERIN 2 CHRETIENTE: If you re-upload files that have been properly deleted, then they will be deleted again. You may only upload once. Please go to commons:undeletion requests to get the original files undeleted. Si vous téléchargez à nouveau des fichiers correctement supprimés, ils seront à nouveau supprimés. Vous ne pouvez télécharger qu'une seule fois. Veuillez aller à commons:undeletion requests pour obtenir les fichiers originaux non supprimés. Ronhjones  (Talk) 22:04, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Je pense que l'affaire est entendue :était_annulé_PELERIN_DE_CHRETIENTE : Faux nez, re-upload et copyvio… --AdM (talk) 21:24, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
@AdM: Thank You. All known accounts are blocked here. Je vous remercie. Tous les comptes connus sont bloqués ici. Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:59, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
As I read you correctly: “If you re-upload files that have been properly deleted, then they will be deleted again”, these pictures should be deleted, but they are not. Is there a special procedure? // Si je vous suis bien — « Si vous téléchargez à nouveau des fichiers correctement supprimés, ils seront à nouveau supprimés » —, ces images sont appelées à être supprimées à nouveau, mais elles ne l'ont pas été. Y a-t-il une démarche particulière à faire ?

@AdM:Just nominate for deletion as "recreation of previously deleted image" (and link to image name if different) - you can add {{dont recreate|Image:Example.jpg}} to the user's page. Users with a low edit count get flagged at User:SteinsplitterBot/Previously deleted files automatically. Ronhjones  (Talk) 15:08, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Portada libro Zafari.pngEdit

Hi Ronhjones. The image is the product of the scanning of the cover of the book Zafarí, published in Spain in 1942 (76 years ago) and for many years exhausted in commercial networks. Today you can only find it in collector's shops. The cover consists of a drawing, possibly made by the author of the book, who was a painter as well as a writer. The author died in 1946 (76 years ago) without offspring and I am sure that, if he lived, he would be very proud that his work was publicly known and used. You can see the author pageán_Montemayor in Wikipedia. --Majarova (talk) 04:47, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

@Majarova:possibly made is not good enough for commons. It need to be certain. Note that for an artist in Spain, dying before 1987, copyright is 80 years en:WP:NUSC, so if he did do the cover, then I think copyright will expire on 1st Jan 2027. Lack of offspring makes no difference, someone (cousin, second cousin, etc) would have inherited the copyright. Ronhjones  (Talk) 12:59, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Photos in museumEdit

Hello Ron, Sorry for that. I hope this is the preferred manner in which to respond as well. Little troublesome navigating around Wikipedia. How does one respond? On mine, or yours, USER page? Or in the email sent to me?

For this response:

Your image or other content, File:George Doundoulakis promoted to First Sergeant, 1945, Cairo, Egypt.jpg, was recently deleted in accordance with our process and policies. You have recreated this content after it was deleted; please do not do this. If you would like to contest the deletion, please visit Commons:Undeletion requests and follow the instructions there to have the deletion reviewed. Recreating deleted content outside of process is not allowed, and doing so repeatedly may cause you to lose your editing privileges. Thank you for understanding.

Ronhjones (Talk) 21:03, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

If photo is in the National Hellenic Museum is there a system in place for that, such as Wikipedia's [content criteria]? If not, is there another preferred method to place a photo in that is under museum auspices and soon to be digitized and made public? CheersBigeez (talk) 22:37, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

@Bigeez: Photos of items in a museum are usually not allowed, but depends on country. A museum will have 2D and 3D items (paintings, photos are 2D, and sculptures are 3D). Having an item in "public place" can make it "Public Domain" Some countries call a museum a "public place" - e.g. UK and most of old UK empire - but often the work needs to be "permanent" - see Commons:Freedom_of_panorama for a list of countries - the US does not call a museam a public place, neither does it call a 2D work "public domain" because of it's display (the only 3D items that can be photographed in the US are buildings). Anyway, back to the point. You are only allowed to upload once - after that you have to request undeletion at Commons:Undeletion_requests for the original image - File:Fullsizeoutput 1f96.jpg. For the image to be free, you need to know who took the image, where the image was taken, and when they died (copyright is usually 70 years after photographer's death - but US copyright is a minefield of different rules for different times - that will depend if the image was published first in the US or somewhere else). If you can show that it was taken by US military, then there is no copyright. If totally unknown photographer, then it needs to be 120 years old. Oh, and Non-free images are never allowed on commons, you have to upload them on en-wiki (and add a fair-use rationale and a non free license) Sorry for long winded answer, but this is not an easy one.Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:18, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Hello, Thank you, clears it up! I will follow these guidelines in the future. (Also, Eng:2, Swe: 0!)Bigeez (talk) 16:17, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

I'm addressing itEdit

Hey, can you please restore this deleted photo? I'm dealing with its OTRS ticket. Regards. --Mhhossein talk 11:20, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

@Mhhossein: All yours. Ronhjones  (Talk) 11:25, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Permission for a 1874 file?Edit

Hi Ronhjones. I don't quite see your point for your request for permission to use a 1878 photograph [1]. This photograph is Public Domain, having been shot in 1878, hence the {{pd-1923}} tag I've used. I've never heard of anything more needed for this kind of very old file, please enlighten me. Would a Pd-Art license be more appropriate?? पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 15:48, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

@पाटलिपुत्र:I changed the template - A US template slone is not suitable for non-US items. If it's in the BL - has there been any restoration? UK TOO is very low. Ronhjones  (Talk) 15:58, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
I updated the licence for this particular file. It's PD because the photographer died in 1907 and/or works created in India before 1958 only had a copyright term of 50 years after creation. De728631 (talk) 16:14, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

Museum filesEdit

All these files [2] were provided to me under cc-by-sa-2.0 by e-mail agreement by the creator of the photographs. I can of course send the e-mail to anyone in charge. Can you explain to me how to do it? पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 15:59, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

@पाटलिपुत्र: The copyright holder has to go to COM:CONSENT, this is the only way to use someone else's photographs. Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:01, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

"Η ΩΡΑ" as per email of 27 June 2018, Ticket#2018062510009972 and Ticket#2018062510009758Edit

Hi Ronhjones.Thanks for the guidance. An email is sent (1:13 Athens time, 7/9/2018) to "" with title "Ticket#2018062510009972 and Ticket#2018062510009758 "Η ΩΡΑ" greek daily newspaper 1956" with additional information. These are to help make the connection of greek and latin characters. Charilaos Tzannetakis scanned and attached at the email his ID card so that there is no issue of identification of the email address.--John Larry Chaos (talk) 10:40, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ronhjones. For a valid permission to be provided what additional piece of information is needed? Regards,--John Larry Chaos (talk) 15:57, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

@John Larry Chaos: The permissions team will ask if they need more data. Usually just the permission form from the copyright holder, and verification that they are who they say. Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:22, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Deletion for copyviolEdit

Hi. When you delete a file for a copyright violation o undefined license it better to look for derivative files and delete those too. For instance [3]. Regards--Pierpao.lo (listening) 09:05, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Archivo mjmp. JpegEdit

La foto es obra mía. No estoy violando ningún derecho de autor. Tiene hasta los datos de cámara. El problema es que no se que plantilla y etiqueta debo colocar. Es la primera vez que intento subir algo. Agradecería me informara que debo hacer. Saludos Majosoes (talk) 17:39, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

@Majosoes: You can only upload once. If it gets deleted you must either talk to the deleting administrator (User:Jcb}, or go to Commons:Undeletion requests and request that the original file (File:Rmjm.jpeg) be undeleted.
Solo puedes subir una vez. Si se elimina, debe hablar con el administrador de eliminación (User:Jcb} o ir a Commons: Solicitudes de restauración y solicitar que el archivo original (File:Rmjm.jpeg) sea recuperado. Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:52, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

The "keep" result is on the talk page, so it gets flagged when there is a speedy. Speedy is only for the most obvious cases. Ronhjones  (Talk) 00:04, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

No answerEdit

Hoping for a speedy and positive reply. thankyou! KS=Karamveer (talk) 18:20, 14 July 2018 (UTC) Karamveer Singh

@KS=Karamveer: Virtually everything created, automatically gains copyright at creation. The copyright holder must go to COM:CONSENT to donate the copyright. Ronhjones  (Talk) 18:28, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Photos that u nominate deletion about meetei languages pageEdit

The 2 photos that I have uploaded has no ISBN and it is local books. How I have to approach it not to be deleted? --Awangba Mangang (talk) 20:01, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

@Awangba Mangang: It is not a subject I know about. It looks like a modern book / maybe re-print. It might be PD due to its age - when was it (originally) written? You might get better answers with a question at Commons:Village pump/Copyright - there maybe somone who knows about it, but we need to have the correct license for the book. Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:00, 14 July 2018 (UTC)


w:File:Ben 10 Ultimate Alien logo.svg

I think this can be moved to Commons as PD-textlogo, would you agree? File:Ben 10 reboot logo.png was also kept. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 15:02, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

@Alexis Jazz: The extra bit is just a text block, you are probably right. US TOO is quite high. Ronhjones  (Talk) 15:30, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of File:Bonus Island II in SuperTux 0.5.1.pngEdit

I have noticed that your name has been mentioned in the 'speedy deletion' notice. However, it is NOT a copyright violation.

The game, its resources and the worldmap are either licensed under the GNU General Public License for code or the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license for data. I took the screenshot myself and licensed it under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license. Therefore I do not see why it would be copyright violation or why it was made subject to speedy deletion.

@Brmbrmcar: Then you need to put in a the license for the software as well as your own, and a link to the game's license page. Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:30, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Deletion ResponseEdit

Hello! Wanted to touch base because I uploaded content for a second time, and it was taken down again. The copyright owner had sent an email to the Wikicommons permissions email address. What else can I do?

Austin Austinwmcl (talk) 21:49, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

@Austinwmcl: You may only upload once. After that you have to use Commons:Undeletion requests, or wait for the OTRS team to verify the permission and undelete the image. Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:54, 18 July 2018 (UTC)


Hi. I haven't done much work with stamp files, and noticed that you speedied this page as a derivative work with no source. To me it looks like a photo from a personal collection (not a photo from a catalog), although there's no EXIF data. Commons:Stamps/Public domain doesn't address Swaziland stamps. Am I missing something? All the best, Miniapolis 16:41, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

I agree, there nothing in Commons:Stamps/Public domain, so they are effectively 5 paintings, unless you can show that Swaziland stamps are PD. Someone painted those designs, and thereby (as Wikipedia:Non-U.S._copyrights) gains 50yeras pma copyright. Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:46, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
