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!

There are two things wrong with the page
  1. There is no license - that is not allowed. Every image must have a suitable license, it's a fundamental rule here.
  2. If you go to the source it says "This item is available to be shared and re-used under the terms of the IWM Non Commercial Licence" - we do not allow non-commercial usage, and since it has the IWM logos all over it, it would silly to ignore that - I don't know how much image processing has been done by the IWM, the colour scales at the top would suggest they have been adjusting it, and UK TOO is very low (I live here!), so their claim to copyright can be valid.

Thank you so much: Again, the newbie is wrong, we are right. I and the Foundation gives a shit about permissions of images, which do not have any copyrights left. A poster, which is older than 100 years is free. But it´s clear, you you have studied law and additionally, you are administrator. Thanks for the great support of my students and any new editor and contributor. --Hubertl 18:33, 3 January 2017 (UTC)


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)

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)
