Carmine Esposito ImagesEdit

Hi Ronh, could you tell me why you deleted all the images of the article Carmine Esposito? I personally talked with Carmine Esposito who is the owner of this images and awards and he gave me his approval to use it. Could you help me tell me how can I share these images in this Biography when the images are property of the person who is the biography about.

In the case of the awards, how can I put these on the biography if he won these but he by himself shared it on his social profiles. Which is the Creative Commons Licence that I have to use these images. I used a Licence where I said that these images are property of Carmine Esposito but isn't was enought and I don´t unerstand.

Thanks for all your help. I'll wait for your answer. Template:01:01, 21 April 2017

Because you uploaded them before and they were copyright violations then. So they still are. If an image is already on the internet then it's far harder to get it uploaded here, as it will be immediately be deleted as a copyright violation. There is no way here of proving identities. You will have to sort out the permission with the OTRS team - see COM:CONSENT, when the team approve the permission then they will undelete the images. Ronhjones  (Talk) 01:10, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

File:Nickelback - Someday - CD cover copyright violationEdit

Hi, I've taken this cover from english wiki page and I don't know exactly which type of license I should choose/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leo240 (talk • contribs) 07:17, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

@Leo240: There isn't one. Commons does not allow non-free images like Wikipedia. If it did, we would move the file from Wikipedia, not make a copy. The number of CD covers you will find on commons is very small - one that is far too simple for copyright. Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:58, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Kate WarneEdit

Just for your information, the person in the photo you uploaded here:,_seated)_with_his_officers.jpg is not Kate Warne, it is John C. Babcock. The original is labeled as such and other photos of Babcock confirm the ID. That this is Warne was just someone's online incorrect supposition that spread thanks to the internet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shootseven (talk • contribs) 16:37, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

@Shootseven: I only moved it from en-wiki - the uploader en:User:Spalm jhu has long been inactive. Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:45, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Tropical Depression 1- Previously Deleted Image due to copyrightEdit

Hello Ronhjones,

My sincere apologies for the original upload of the .gif image regarding Tropical Depression 1 (1988). I was trying to find the way to edit the information of the upload so I could include links to the satellite dataset but by the time I was able to get to it, the file was deleted. Many thanks for pointing the issue out to me and this error will not be repeated in future uploads. Bmatilla (talk) 03:04, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Soth PolinEdit

Hi Ronhjones, I don't understand why you deleted the pictures on Soth Polin's page. There were pictures of old newspapers and old book covers before the Khmer Rouge (1975; the KR destroyed everything, all books, all newspapers, they killed 90% of the writers). There is no right holders. Could you help me to resolve this problem ? Chris —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 12:14, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

They were uploaded and then deleted as per Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Domrey sar, the uploader then uploaded them again which is not allowed, so they were deleted again, and appropriate notices added to User_talk:Domrey_sar. The procedure is to request undeletion at Commons:Undeletion requests, and show why they need to be undeleted. Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:11, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

延榮 imageEdit

Hi Ronh, could you tell me why you deleted 延榮.jpg image of the article 延榮?This is the portrait of my great grandfather I found in my family's album. It was scanned by myself. My great grandfather died in year 1916. I have no idea who and where this photo was token. Could you help me and tell me how can I share this image? 亦飛 (talk) 04:18, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

@亦飛:The image was originally deleted (not by me), you are not allowed to just upload it again. The process is to go to Commons:Undeletion requests and request deletion. You need to address the arguments at Commons:Deletion requests/File:延榮.jpg Ronhjones  (Talk) 22:54, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Ronh, thank you for explanation. Actually, I contacted the person ( EugeneZelenko) who suggested delete the image before. I provided the information he asked about "Proper author/date/country of creation information should be supplied to determine copyrights status.", but I never got response. 亦飛 (talk) 01:35, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

@亦飛: Best to use Commons:Undeletion requests - editors come and go, can't guarantee they will be around. Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:48, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Ask to restore File:Harunaluna20160224a2.jpgEdit

The file was removed because of a doubt of copyright violation. However, the problem had already been solved. The photo was taken by me. It was discussed in Actually, I allowed to use this photo under the licences CC-BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL. See the following tweet. I would like to ask restore File:Harunaluna20160224a2.jpg. Highskysingwind (Talk) 13:54, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

@Highskysingwind: Restored - the permission field has been included to show the text from twitter, the license adjusted to match that text.
Thank you very much. Highskysingwind (Talk) 21:47, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Photo deletion: Oliver Harrison.jpg. The licence agreement for photo sent on 11 Feb 2017 (revisited)Edit

Hi Rohn, I was just wondering, it’s been over two months and I haven’t heard anything about the photo - mentioned above - being restored. A fully signed Wikipedia licence was signed and sent to ‘ ‘ on the 11th Feb by the photographer Richard Townshend. I just wondered if it had got lost in the system or perhaps I need to contact somebody else? Many thanks for your time.Underground Art (talk) 17:09, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

@Underground Art: Well that's very odd. It travelled all around OTRS... It went straight into Queue "Probably-Spam", they get checked and it got manually moved to Queue "permissions::permissions-en", I've now moved it into Queue "permissions::permissions-commons" (where it should have dropped into). Because of that wacky treatment, it did not issue the auto-answer message. I've no idea why the system called it spam, It looks like the permission image was pasted into the e-mail body, rather than made it as a proper attachment - that would be my guess of what has happened, the large HTML section has triggered a spam filter, whereas a small HTML message with a separate attachment would not. Who knows... I've locked the ticket to me and I'll sort it out tonight. Ronhjones  (Talk) 19:34, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
