I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!


I have just come across a few images you have recently uploaded from Flickr. I would appreciate it if in the future, you used the Flickr2Commons tool. This tool allows images to be moved to Commons from Flickr without having to download the images to your own computer. It also brings in the largest resolution of the image, as well making sure to list the correct license and url, making it easy for the automated Flickr Review system. Also, it is fairly easy to categorize images with this tool. To use it, you just need to go to the url and authorize it (where it says "authorise first").--B dash (talk) 00:16, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

@B dash: I don't download Flickr images to my computer first. Under my user rights, I get the option of uploading directly from Flickr via the Upload wizard, and all I have to do is to provide the Flickr URL. I would have thought that the system is clever enough to find its way to the full-res version as any down-sized version relates back to the full-size version via given URL rules on Flickr. Is that not so? Would you be able to provide an example where I've uploaded a photo from Flickr that isn't the full version? Also, I've never used auto-categorisation as I don't believe in that; I'd rather stay in full control of that aspect. Schwede66 00:39, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
@B dash: Could you please give me the courtesy of answering (at least some of) my questions? Schwede66 09:50, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

@JuTa: It's my own video, taken on my iPhone. I uploaded it to Vimeo first so that I can convert it to a format that works for Commons. Just like it's described on the relevant help page. Now that the video is on Commons, I've set visibility on Vimeo to "only me" so there is no way of checking there, I'm afraid. Schwede66 09:48, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Then you should give the vimeo movie a license that commons accepts. Otherwise it will likely get deleted within a week. --JuTa 09:53, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
@JuTa: Done. But I ask once more, how will you check now that the video is no longer listed? Schwede66 10:02, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
I didnt meant to delete the vimuea video, but to change its license. --JuTa 10:05, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
@JuTa: That is what I have done; I have changed the licence to Commons Share Alike. Schwede66 10:08, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
But I now get Leider konnten wir die Seite nicht finden (in german), that looks like it has been deleted or hidden. --JuTa 10:10, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
@JuTa: That is unsurprising. As I said above, I've set visibility on Vimeo to "only me". I have no interest in people looking at my videos on Vimeo. I simply use that site for video format conversion purposes as per the help page linked to above. That is all. And after all, what I do with my videos on other sites is entirely my own business, isn't it? Schwede66 10:16, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Then nobody can check that license anymore. You should switch it back, otherwise the license check will fail. --JuTa 10:18, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
PS: on the help page there a lot of offline conversion tools listed. Maybe its better you use some of them in future, then you dont have to "publish" the videos online at vimeo anymore. --JuTa 10:20, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

@JuTa: Nobody needs to check that licence any more. It's my video. I took the video for publishing on Wikimedia Commons. It is licensed here on Wikimedia Commons the way I want it to be licensed. It is now licensed on the other site with a compatible license. That it was briefly visible on another site is merely a function of Wikimedia Commons recommending that I use that site for file format conversion purposes. In fact, the video was originally unlisted but the Video2commons utility produced an error (which was obvious; it simply couldn't see that URL). I use Vimeo because that's the default option that's been recommended for this. If this situation is a problem then Wikimedia needs to get its shit together and start accepting more video file formats. I sense, though, that it isn't really a problem and you simply want to be difficult. Where's the common sense approach? This is my video, mate. Think about it for a second. Schwede66 10:32, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Then you should remove the vimeo link and the {{licensereview}} template on the desciption. --JuTa 10:35, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Done. Schwede66 10:40, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
