End of copyviosEdit

Hi again Storkk. I was wondering if non-admins can add {{End of copyvios}} to another editor's user talk page. The last two files uploaded by User:Jezyl Galarpe are definitely not "own work" and there's no indication anywhere that they've been released under a CC license that Commons accepts by their respective copyright holders. Mistakenly uploading fair use content as "own work" is a pretty common mistake, but this editor's user talk page is filled with lots of notifications about inappropriate uploads. I'm not sure if they even understand what "own work" means, but I thought one last warning might be warranted. -- Marchjuly (talk) 13:11, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

I don't think I used it myself before I became an admin. To me, the template's wording felt a bit too close to making empty threats on others' behalf... but you may feel differently, especially in obvious cases. Lots of people do, and per Template:End_of_copyvios/doc, the template is intended to be used by all users. I suggest using your best judgment and doing what you feel comfortable with... I've placed it on Jezyl Galarpe's talk page. All the best, Storkk (talk) 13:35, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for taking a look at this and adding the template. I agree about the wording/tone of the template; it does seem like something only an admin should be posting since it pretty much implies that the next copyvio uploaded will lead to an immediate block. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:04, 26 July 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Marchjuly: I used to feel the same, had also reported a user on AN to be warned once, only for user T Cells to add the template. Might as well do it myself then.. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 00:36, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Permission appears to be from subject rather than photographer. Storkk (talk) 09:26, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Protection of my talkEdit

Hello. I don't endorse now protection of my talk pages. I think it is unhelpful now. Please unprotect it. Marshmallych 09:39, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

@Marshmallych: OK - I have unprotected it. I semiprotected it on the assumption that your previous request still stood, and the fact that every time protection ran out your talk page was vandalized again... but if you'd prefer to leave it unprotected, that's fine too. Feel free to request protection again, either here or on COM:ANB. Cheers, Storkk (talk) 12:16, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
