About my uploadsEdit

Hello dear

Thanks for the deletion requests you made on my uploads.. Actually, I want to have them deleted because I uploaded them into the wiki commons instead of using Non-free content page.. I really need to learn more..

All the images I uploaded are non-free content. I have the URL sources and I'll use them on wikiepedia articles that pertains to each.

So, when you have them deleted, how do I upload them as "Non-free content"... which link should I use?

Thanks a lot and God bless.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Hilumeoka2000 (talk • contribs)

@Hilumeoka2000: Are these images for the English Wikipedia? If so, is the form to use. IMPORTANT NOTE: photos of living people are never permitted under fair use. If the article is about a living person, then the only way it can have a photo is if the subject of the article sends one in or if a Wikipedian takes a photo of them. --B (talk) 17:34, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

About my uploadsEdit

Thanks a lot for the reply. Yes, the images are for English Wikipedia.. I'll use the form you provided to upload..

However, one of the images if for living person. You should the person should send the image to wikipedia.. How would he do this? Can he upload directly from his wikipedia account?

Once again, thanks a lot.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hilumeoka2000 (talk • contribs)

@Hilumeoka2000: Please use four tildes - ~~~~ - to sign your messages. This makes it easier to see who it is from. Please see en:WP:CONSENT (or COM:CONSENT) for information about donating photos under a license that is compatible with Wikipedia. Wikipedia and Commons only accept donations of images with a permission that permits the image to be reused or modified by anyone. So if you are in contact with the copyright holder of the image, please ask that person to submit this statement of permission for the image. Please make sure that either (a) they attach the image to the email or (b) if the image has been uploaded to Wikipedia or Commons give the URL where it was uploaded so that we can find it. Wikipedia's preference is to have images under a en:free content license and if you are in communication with the copyright holder, that is the best practice. Under very limited circumstances, photos can be used under a claim of fair use. This is not what we would prefer and is never acceptable for living people. Wikipedia's non-free content criteria say that a fair use photo can never be used if have an expectation that we could ever receive a en:free content one and image donations without an acceptable license are never permitted. In other words, if the copyright holder wants to grant permission to only Wikipedia to use the image, we will only use it if we could have used it under a claim of fair use even without permission. --B (talk) 22:53, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I think the flickr upload tool added the categories - didn't notice until it was too late. I will try identify the subjects - shouldn't be too hard. Gbawden (talk) 11:50, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi B, when you complain about somebody on a public noticeboard or even report to WMF (such as here), it is an elementary question of fairness to notify that person about your complaint/action. --Túrelio (talk) 08:44, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

@Túrelio: Don't be ridiculous. That's not a noticeboard. It's a user talk page where I was letting a user know that their block had been reverted so that they could re-apply it, and that the banned user in question had switched IPs. I'm not sure where there is "fairness" involved. Were the underlying facts - that an IP had been globally blocked and someone locally had overridden it - in dispute? Perhaps if Commons admins would get on board with en:WP:RBI, instead of continuing to treat this banned user with reverence, he would move on with his life. --B (talk) 12:35, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
If I lowered myself to your choosen level of communication, I would have to say: Don't be cowardish. You denounced another user (Denniss) to "the authorities" (aka WMF). As a result of your denunciation, this user has now been threatened by WMF. The latter fact has also been noticed[1] and not well taken by the :de community, surely again improving their relation towards WMF. So, if you didn't scruple to report Denniss, why didn't you have the guts to notify him? Even your beloved :en policy requires that. --Túrelio (talk) 20:12, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Oh good grief, you're being ridiculous. --B (talk) 22:23, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello B,

the following content you uploaded is not free and therefore has been or will soon be deleted:

File:GT Buzz.jpg

The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:

  • use in any work, regardless of content
  • creation of derivative works
  • commercial use
  • free distribution

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons, and Commons:Image casebook for some specific examples. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on Wikimedia Commons; "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Please note that derivative works of copyrighted material are also considered copyrighted. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how Wikimedia Commons works. Thanks for your contribution, and please do leave me a message if you have further questions.

Yours sincerely, Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 05:36, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
