Ole hea ja kustuta ka see. Läks üles koos teiste Pääsukese piltidega, aga siis ilmnes, et see pole üldse tema töö (kuigi seos on olemas). Teiste puhul on loomulikult luba olemas, aga siin sai leitud, et ei hakka selle puhul luba taga ajama. Kruusamägi (talk) 01:37, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

File:Dana Depelteau.jpgEdit

Hey, I noticed you deleted the file Dana Depelteau.jpg, but a release was sent to OTRS by the copyright holder. Can I re-upload it? Shadowrvn728 (talk) 22:40, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Also on deleted file:Hosanna Yemiru.jpg you put "(OTRS: Unaccepted or insufficient permission for use on Commons)" as your edit summary. What do you mean by this? Isn't an OTRS release sufficient permission for use on Commons?
Edit: Also, don't the logos you deleted fall under pd-textlogo, as with the many other campaign logos on Commons that are used in politics articles?
Edit 2: I saw your reason for deletion on the logos. I was working to get the rest of the logos and photos if possible to add to the article 2021 Dallas City Council election, but since they were nominated for deletion, I was waiting to upload more until it was clear whether I am allowed to upload them or not.
Thanks! Shadowrvn728 (talk) 22:43, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
OTRS is sufficient permission for use. But these files had no such permission. You tagged them on 26th and 21th of February with "OTRS pending" with "they will send the email tomorrow morning using the OTRS Release Generator". During month there was no evidence of such e-mail ever sent. If the permission will received and accepted, then the files will be restored. Do not re-upload them.
All the logos in Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Shadowrvn728 were really PD-textlogos and I did not delete them due to copyright reasons, but due to missing educational value. They were used nowhere, not even in en:2021 Dallas City Council election. This does not mean, that every logo used in 2021 Dallas Council elections is textlogo, it depends on logos. Taivo (talk) 07:07, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
So can I re-upload or request undeletion of the logos [here] as long as I put them in the article soon after? Shadowrvn728 (talk)! Shadowrvn728 (talk) 16:42, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
@Shadowrvn728: I restored them without formalities. Please add them into article. I am quite sure, that some candidates have complex logos, so you cannot have logo of every candidate in the article and if the Wikipedia community decides to remove all the logos, then I'll delete them soon after. You can try nevertheless. I'll look after week or so the situation. Taivo (talk) 16:51, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks! I’ll make sure to get them in there soon. Shadowrvn728 (talk) 17:15, 7 April 2021 (UTC)


This file was wrongly overwrited. Can you split them apart? Thanks!--Larryasou (talk) 06:16, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

@Larryasou: Splitting is possible, but all versions are quite similar and I do not know, which versions to separate. Also I am not sure, which name to give for separated version. Taivo (talk) 07:32, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Thomas Ashburton PickenEdit

Please would you kindly think twice before deleting any more of the categories relating to Thomas Ashburton Picken. There has been a wholesale change of those categories, and I cannot keep up with it before it is all deleted and changed. Picken never left the UK as far as I can discover. However he illustrated many other countries during a long career, and that is significant. The categories need to show, all in one place, all the countries which he illustrated. Also, not all his work was lithographs (some were copper engravings, and some possibly wooducts), and it's currently all being labelled as lithographs. Too many of the important categories have been deleted without discussion, and I don't know what to do about it. Storye book (talk) 11:22, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

"December 2016 in Switzerland"?Edit

Hi Taivo; I don't think that adding this category to a logo makes much sense. As I understand it, the category is for images that show something in Switzerland in December 2016. In this case, the radio station using this logo apparently began broadcasting in that month indeed, but as I see it, the logo itself is not depicting "December 2016 in Switzerland". Gestumblindi (talk) 16:07, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

In my opinion it still makes sense. Does community have any discussion or even decision about that? I have no strong feelings towards the category. Taivo (talk) 16:19, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
Oh, I also have no strong feelings there. Personally, I found it strange and not what I would expect in such a category, but I also don't know of any community discussion regarding the matter. Gestumblindi (talk) 00:12, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Which deleted file refers to a sculptureEdit

Hello Taivo. I noticed that you deleted two files that are DW at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Rizal Park, despite my withdrawal. Which of these two show the sculpture? So that I will list the file name manually on top of Category:Philippine FOP cases/deleted for quick restoration in case FOP is introduced here officially and formally (when will that happen, I don't know however, as legislative priority now is on recovery bills in response to the pandemic). The other one is certainly not eligible for the future Phil. FOP as proposed. JWilz12345 (Talk|Contrib's.) 13:12, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

File:RizalParkjf8109 09.JPG is some kind of abstract metal sculpture. (And maybe you noticed: I deleted at first file:RizalParkjf8110 13.JPG, but restored, because discovered, that the information board is not copyrighted). Taivo (talk) 13:16, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for your response. Done adding it too, and I also renamed the pseudo-heading to reflect that some may have been deleted for other reasons (and not necessarily speedy). JWilz12345 (Talk|Contrib's.) 13:25, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

User Tm creating a lot of redirecting categoriesEdit

Hi Taivo. Thanks for clarifying Category:International railway line between Barca d'Alva-La Fregeneda and La Fuente de San Esteban. The user Tm is creating another 4 more redirecting categories to it. His behaviour is completely obsessive and senseless. He's never going to stop creating a lot of redundant and useless redirecting categories to it. He's exhausting me. --Lojwe (talk) 00:05, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Lojwe, you are the one that is completely obsessive in wanting to delete this valid and sourced redirects to remove valid names from Wikidata, Portuguese Wikipedia and Commons. This is hapenning since the middle of 2020 and you are the one that is constantly trying to remove names that, albeit sourced, are not of your liking. You are the one that is constantly trying to speed delete valid redirects, albeit what other users have said " There's nothing wrong with keeping redirection categories where users and readers will find this useful, e.g. Category:Crows" in one of your attempts to have me blocked. Will you stop obssesing with other persons and let them do other things instead of having to stop this madness of yours? Tm (talk) 00:20, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

File:Bahnhof Harlingerode Emaille.jpgEdit

Yes, my argumentation is valid since I am the original uploader of this picture and know the circumstances around it. I have lately been cleaning up older pictures of mine that are not suitable for online publishment. Be more precise in your argumentation and discuss it with the requesting user (here: me) if you are in doubt in future. Nin-TD (talk) 17:21, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

No, I am not in doubt. Permission from sign creator is not needed, because the sign is very simple and ineligible for copyright. Taivo (talk) 17:28, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

I still want this picture deleted as the original uploader. Why are you opposing it? Nin-TD (talk) 17:37, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Also, it is not about the simplicity of the sign but the fact this picture was shot on private property and I do not own the rights. I already explained that I've been cleaning up pictures with an ambiguous origin and this one is part of it. Furthermore, the owner is not the sign creator. Nin-TD (talk) 17:40, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

@Nin-TD: Some places like museums forbid photographing. Commons does not care about that. Please read COM:HOUSERULES about that. Actually this is railway station sign and it is difficult to believe, that railway station is private property. The first reason, why I am against deletion, is that railway station signs have educational value. Another reason is that the image is used in German Wikipedia – and I do not mean your userpage. Such images can be deleted only due to copyright problems, but here is no copyright problem. Taivo (talk) 17:58, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

This is what I initially meant with argumentation and discussion: You don't know the whole background of the footage and are instead arguing by false assumptions. It is unnecessarily taking both my and your time.

- This sign isn't hanging in a recent or historical rail station. The original rail station had been abandoned in 1987 and was later sold to a family. The sign was sold to a different family whom I did not ask for permission.

- It isn't positioned inside a household either but in a backyard.

The main reason why I'm not agreeing is that I'm still affected as the person that can be held liable in doubt. So yes, there is a copyright problem since I'm saying this as the original uploader. Also, the educational purpose of this image is not significant - it's used in one Wikipedia article that is generally dealing with enamel signs of all kind. It is easily replacable. - Nin-TD (talk) 18:18, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

The file is ineligible for speedy deletion. I thought about creating regular deletion request, which lasts at least week, simply for searching courtesy deletion. The file has educational value, it has no copyright problems and it has no replacement file, so outcome of regular DR will be inevitably keep. Actually the file would be eligible for speedy keep. Creating deletion request would be wasting community's resources. Taivo (talk) 21:10, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
As you wish, then the file is going to stay. However, I will point out that it's your decision that the file is staying and thus out of my responsibility if there actually will be a complaint. Nin-TD (talk)

Question about blocked userEdit

Question: How can a user was able to edit his discussion page ( after you blocked him indefinitely? Pierre cb (talk) 22:55, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Blocked users, even indefinitely blocked users can still edit own talkpage to be able to request unblock. If this right is abused, then users can be blocked without talkpage access. At moment I do not want to do that, maybe in future. Taivo (talk) 09:39, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Railway line between Barca d'Alva and La Fuente de San EstebanEdit

Hi Taivo, I saw you did this change which resolved the trouble about the name of this category. But again the same users (1, 2) broke the apparent consensus that there was. I see you are administrator in Commons, so I beg you please put an end to this situation. Since last year I usually work in this line, in es:wiki, in Wikidata and in Commons, but that's impossible. I don't care about the name (although I prefer a short one), but it is impossible to work this way. I am always changing the data in Wikidata and Es:wiki because of these arbitrary changes. It is very difficult to stay calm and in good manners. Thanks in advance. CFA1877 (talk) 10:57, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Forcefire ao vivo em Mangaratiba, Brasil.jpgEdit

Morning Taivo, In regards to Commons:Deletion requests/File:Forcefire ao vivo em Mangaratiba, Brasil.jpg - Not all images have Metadata - For instance my images taken with a 2011-2013 phone includes no metadata either[2], I worry for my own photos and I worry it sets a precedent where people will think No Metadata=Copyvio.
If and when that time comes where I'm no longer around I would hope my photos (even the 2013 ones) still survive here and would certainly hope they're not nominated on the basis of being a copyvio,
The image in question is theres (otherwise they wouldn't of made such a big deal about deleting it) and personally I feel it should've been kept purely because it shows an image from that era.
Anyway have a nice day in this beautiful weather :), Warm regards, –Davey2010Talk 09:26, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Yes, I know, you are right ... I started to feel, that uploader is himself depicted, and the photo was not a selfie. Taivo (talk) 09:46, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
Hi Taivo, So shouldn't the file be undeleted and kept or failing that relisted to gain more opinions ?, I appreciate you taking the time to close DRs especially when there's thousands of them but in this specific case I'm just not seeing a reason to delete other than "low res image" which in itself isn't a reason to delete the file.

@TTP1233: The images must be made by Indian government. Publishing on Indian government site is often not enough. And if source site has non-free license, then this is also bad. I have deleted multiple of your uploads, because they were taken from site with non-free license. Taivo (talk) 21:27, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
Then Press Information Bureau are a part of Indian government site, as I noticed that GazothBot usually uploaded PIB files originally until 2018, after that it is inactive. So I can upload files from only Press information Bureau under this license. Right?TTP1233 (talk) 03:14, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
every Commons file must be free for commercial use and derivative works. I have deleted files from, because site's copyright policy from says: "The material must be reproduced accurately". In my opinion this means: derivative works are prohibited, nothing is said about commercial use. The site is not enough free. You can ask from village pump for another opinion.

File:Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi official portrait (2).jpgEdit

Sir, an observation to this file is that, the source mentioned on the file is from Press Information Beareau but when I click the direct link, it is going to Prime Minister official website, which is given at the top of the message. The ID to this file is unavailable. I need you to nominate this file for deletion...And the reason will be the wrong source used with improper manner...TTP1233 (talk) 15:12, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Hello Taivo, I greet you from Germany. I maintain the German language articles on the Gambia topic. Also I have an eye on Commons with the Gambia categories. I watch interpret changes here in the subject area and am grateful for them.

I try to look further whether there are not small errors, as for example with the lagoon by Tanji.

I have just tried to create the category for drinks, but as a non-native speaker in English, I am not sure. Should it now be Category:Beverages of Gambia, Category:Beverages from Gambia or Category:Beverages in Gambia? --Atamari (talk) 08:36, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

I am not a native speaker of English as well. Please look at Category:Beverages by country. Taivo (talk) 08:46, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Diff not a Road. Not a Road for vehicles, it's pathway for pedestrian. --Atamari (talk) 08:40, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Walking paths are roads as well. Taivo (talk) 08:46, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

You closed File:Dan Trotta at the Gale Anne Hurd Masterclass (6829984489).jpg as delete, asserting that since no article covered Mr Trotta the image was out of scope.

Are you sure that is correct? Mr Trotta is a senior producer of a very successful and long-running television show, one with a wide international distribution.

The Canadian Film Centre has made thousands of images available, on flickr, under free licenses. Most of those photos show celebrities or VIPs, mainly figures from the Canadian film or television industry, but also visiting American filmmakers or filmstars, or the well-heeled philanthropists whose donations support the CFC, or politicians and journalist or other VIPs. I believe that most of the individuals in those images measure up to SCOPE, and that Mr Trotta measures up to scope.

May I point out were have an order of magnitude more images here than any wiki has articles, meaning images can be in scope even if they are not currently illustrating an article.

Imissdisco never took the step to confirm that they were the real life Dan Trotta, through OTRS. I think we should assume that he or she was not the real life Dan Trotta, unless they take that step.

I supported deletion at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Bryan Atkinson at the CFC 25th Anniversary Celebration in LA.jpg once Mr Atkinson used OTRS to confirm his real life identity.

I will note courtesy deletion is a choice, on our part, and I have supported turning down requests, in the past, when requesters were abusive. Geo Swan (talk) 16:29, 21 June 2021 (UTC)

You are indefinitely blocked in due to dispute over Dan Trotta. Indefinite block is not infinite block. If you request unblock and if you are granted unblock, then you can again ask undeletion of Dan Trotta image. Of course, files are undeleted through undeletion requests, requests on user talkpages are generally declined. If there is an article about Dan Trotta in some mayor language, then this will help your request. Taivo (talk) 17:04, 21 June 2021 (UTC)
