Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements#Japan (2)

Konbanwa Whym, recently the discussion as I cite earlier (ja:Wikipedia:井戸端/subj/人物画像の掲載について) has been re-started. Can we take the issue to Commons and discuss with Japanese Wikipedia community together? I think that the discussion may give a hint how to deal with photographs of Japanese celebrities on Commons. If necessary, we may need to consult with WMF too. --Puramyun31 (talk) 10:42, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

So far I don't see a major new information in the revived discussion. Going forward, I could be of help when translating opinions from Commons and presenting them to Japanese Wikipedia, if that is useful. I'm not confident about doing the other way around, partly because discussions in general on Japanese Wikipedia tend to be a lot more messy than on Commons, and because my ablility to write in English is more limited than reading. whym (talk) 13:06, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

I think your answer is mostly correct, However, There are examples which say about the position of Japanese entertainment/sports industry regarding The right of publicity in the discussion:http://www.japrpo.or.jp/, http://www.jame.or.jp/shozoken/, https://www.j-league.or.jp/aboutj/property/. They claim that they have a powerright to control even just taking a picture of their personel regardless whether they are "public figure" and acting in public in the cited pages. Although I'm not sure whether and how they impose the right of the likeness of their personel in practice as they said, but it's clear that the argument of Japanese entertainment/sports industry is contradictory to our explaination about The right of publicity, which says the scope of protection of the right is limited to commercial use and does not affect the hosting of an image on Commons. If Japanese courts uphold (or already upheld) their argument in real world court cases, we will (would) need a major amendment of COM:IDENT policy and this project will (would) be seriously damaged by the decisions. --Puramyun31 (talk) 06:13, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Photo challenge-translations

Hello Whym,
I saw that you did some translations for the Commons:Photo challenge page to Japanese and wanted to ask if you are still interested in translating texts for this project. If you are, there are several things that could be translated: a) the page itself was just actualised, b) we started to translate the challenge descriptions themselves (so far only with langswitch), and c) I just posted translations to French and English for the watchlist notice (MediaWiki talk:WatchlistNotice - the last entry), where other languages could be added.
Best wishes, --Anna reg (talk) 12:24, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello Whym,
I don't know if you are still interested in the Commons:Photo challenge, but the challenges for August are ready for translation - if you find the time, here are the links: Hair & Holidays.
The general rules which remain the same from month to month are now transferred into two templates - Template:Photo challenge rules and Template:Photo challenge rules restricted (the only difference between the two templates is that the sentence but may have been taken earlier is missing in the restricted one). The templates can also be translated.
Best wishes, --Anna reg (talk) 13:48, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Cannot complete translation on Commons:Administradores

After translating all paragraphs of this page to Spanish, it appears that I cannot translate the section named "How do I become an administrator?" and all of its subsections. The translation interface does not include this section. Could you please help me? Thanks in advance and best regards, Alpertron (talk) 13:52, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Alpertron, I guess the problem is that the how-to is written in another page and is transcluded into the main page. it's discussed at Commons_talk:Administrators#Incorporating Commons:Administrators/Howto. I am undecided whether to merge the two pages or to stop transcluding and leave a link. whym (talk) 00:00, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Code issues in MediaWiki:Gadget-Favorites.js

Hi Whym, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited MediaWiki:Gadget-Favorites.js. Thank you for caring about Wikimedia Commons's javascript pages.
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 2 new jshint issues — the page's status is now having warnings.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine.
  1. ISSUE: line 112 character 47: Expected an assignment or function call and instead saw an expression. - Evidence: if (lock>0 && (time-lock)<(60*1000)) {m
  2. ISSUE: line 112 character 48: Missing semicolon. - Evidence: if (lock>0 && (time-lock)<(60*1000)) {m

Files in Category:Asuka Nishi

Pardon me, but can you help to solve this problem? I'm facing a conflict with the photos of the voice actress, see the talk page of her article in the Japanese Wikipedia, ja:ノート:西明日香, but my knowledge of Japanese law and culture and Japanese language ability are limited. I had added her image on there, but some of Japanese users have strongly opposed my edit and a dispute regarding the edit have occurred, and the article have been protected until today. I apologized this Japanese admin for the edit war without discussion with a long time, but I highly disagree with the opponents' claim that the posting of images of the voice actress is illegitimate, since the photos depicts her official activity and she is a person of the social interest as a part of Japanese pop culture. Nevertheless, the editors argued the photos of her violate right of portrait (肖像権) and legally threatened me that if I still resist themselves, they will report this situation to her management agency. I responded them I just complied with Commons policy and the requirements defined by Tokyo High Court cited to Commons:Country specific consent requirements#Japan and suggested them to contact Commons or WMF directly if they really believe the Commons policy has a problem, but they ignored my response and still pressed me with the name of the agency but without any concrete legal basis such as a statue or a court decision. They seems to impose the financial interests of Japanese entertainment industry regarding their personnel's likeness to Wikimedia projects, however, I believe COM:IDENT is only intended to respect a indivisual's privacy or honor, but not to advocate philosophy of an interest group such as the entertainment industry. --Puramyun31 (talk) 05:08, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

@Puramyun31: As a tentative measure, it might be easier to seek consensus on putting {{commonscat}} instead of directly showing the image. Per previous discussions including ja:Wikipedia:井戸端/subj/人物画像の掲載について (which have never been conclusive), despite they use the term 肖像権, the issue appears not only about (purely) legal matters, but also how Japanese Wikipedia wants to comply with what appears to be the industry standard and maintain its good reputation among the industry. I don't have enough energy to invest on this, but if you care a lot about the general issue of how Japanese Wikipedia should deal with celebrity images, I suggest bringing it up at ja:Wikipedia:井戸端. (but remember, as the first link I gave suggests, it's a perennial issue there.) whym (talk) 10:25, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

File:Annoying User, Good Content.JPG

I don't think this works. IMO, such licensing is only possible in collections; not in adaptations. We have a similar discussion at Template_talk:Art_Photo#Issue_with_MediaViewer where we concluded that the photograph should be CC BY-SA if the statue/painting/object is. I've a bit doubt; so pinging Colin's opinion too. Jee 12:52, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

My guess is the photo is a derivative work of Jimbo's speech and so also CC BY-SA-3.0. The Author part of the file description should say it is jointly created by Jimbo (text) and Vlsergey (photo). The actual image can't be joint licensed with CC0 and CC BY-SA. If Vlsergey wishes to make the non-text part of the image CC0, it's up to him to upload a suitable crop. -- Colin (talk) 13:32, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
@Jkadavoor, Colin: I hope you don't mind that I have moved this discussion to File talk:Annoying User, Good Content.JPG. I have replied there. whym (talk) 00:38, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

about all my photo

can you show me what policy are you according to in COM:IDENT ? because I don't think it's inappropriate or sexual photo. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thewatcher2271 (talk • contribs)

Please look at Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements#Taiwan. (I supposed it was in Taiwan.) I also considered that younger people warrant more protection in general. If you disagree, feel free to propose undeletion and see what others say at COM:UDEL. whym (talk) 01:17, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

ja-speaker needed

Hi Whym, after I had tagged File:フルブル - マンボウ.jpg for suspected copyvio, the uploader left a comment on my talkpage, which I don't really understand, as it was machine-translated, see User_talk:Túrelio#For_File:.E3.83.95.E3.83.AB.E3.83.96.E3.83.AB_-_.E3.83.9E.E3.83.B3.E3.83.9C.E3.82.A6.jpg. As you speak Japanese, could you eventually help with the communication with User:フルブル. Thanks. --Túrelio (talk) 14:39, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Survival craft

Hi - I opened noticed a mass deletion request for Survival craft screenshots - I saw you had deleted a few of the other uploads by 神竜候 (talk · contribs) around the same topic. Do you know anything more about the licensing of the game? I can't find anything specific. If you have any info feel free to add to the deletion request. Thanks very much. -- Deadstar (msg) 14:51, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Problem with Japanese contributor

Hi there. I have been having problems with User:KyotoFlowertourism. This user insists on using a transcription which is not commonly used in English for this island (Ogishima instead of Ogijima; see their talk page) They say that the present transcription is incorrect and disrespectful to Japanese people. This user also does not understand the category system of Wikimedia. I tried explaining policy to them but they either don't understand or don't care. Can you please try to explain to this Japanese user how Wikimedia works? I tried but they keep reverting to their own version which is not correct. - Takeaway (talk) 17:27, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

@Takeaway: Hi, honestly I feel like both have a point. Do you want to try COM:井戸端 or COM:CFD to discuss the issue? I believe transcriptions of not-too-famous proper names are usually treated on a case-by-case basis, per COM:Categories#Category names and COM:LP. whym (talk) 11:55, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi there. Thanks for your reply. I only came across this user because they had put certain files into main Category:Lighthouses, whilst also categorising them under a whole bunch of the subcategories. I tried cleaning up the tremendous overcategorisation that this user seems to love, and also put the media in to correct, existing categories. This user also seems to love creating categories that poorly fit in with existing categories, even having their own user name as a category into which other categories fall. It was then that I discovered that there were double categories in existence for one and the same island. After some research, I directed everything to the oldest category which also was transcribed in what appeared to be the most commonly used spelling for English speakers, which this user didn't like at all, accusing me of being disrespectful towards Japanese people (if I understood the translation by Google correctly). To be honest, as I tend to concentrate more on the correct transcriptions of Thai categories, this issue of transcribing Japanese is not really my concern. But having this user on the loose who creates categories parallel to existing categories because they don't like the naming conventions used, is not very conducive for finding media related to Japan. - Takeaway (talk) 13:32, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
I am not sure but I think this user used two more accounts besides KyotoFlowertourism: Taekotukide and Masamiokamoto. - Takeaway (talk) 13:41, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
I agree that it apparently is being a mess, and I hope somebody can help out (remembering it's a new user who might needs help rather than warnings). However, there is not much I personally can do right now, mostly because of the lack of my volunteer time. I recommend asking for help at COM:井戸端 or COM:CFD. Concerned users there will take it sooner or later. whym (talk) 09:19, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
As you can see from their talk page, I tried to offer them help many times. Unfortunately, they seemed not to want to listen. I am not going to involve myself with this user any more. - Takeaway (talk) 10:01, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Help decide the future of Wikimania

The Wikimedia Foundation is currently running a consultation on the value and planning process of Wikimania, and is open until 18 January 2016. The goals are to (1) build a shared understanding of the value of Wikimania to help guide conference planning and evaluation, and (2) gather broad community input on what new form(s) Wikimania could take (starting in 2018).

After reviewing the consultation, we'd like to hear your feedback on on this survey.

In addition, feel free to share any personal experiences you have had at at a Wikimedia movement conference, including Wikimania. We plan to compile and share back outcomes from this consultation in February.

With thanks,

I JethroBT (WMF) (talk), from Community Resources 21:32, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Towards a New Wikimania results

Last December, I invited you to share your views on the value of Wikimedia conferences and the planning process of Wikimania. We have completed analysis of these results and have prepared this report summarizing your feedback and important changes for Wikimania starting in 2018 as an experiment. Feedback and comments are welcome at the discussion page. Thank you so much for your participation. I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, 22:47, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Flickr上の「public domain」ファイルは、一律7日間で削除対象なのでしょうか

日本語で失礼いたします。「Flickr public domain images needing specific licenses」について、管理者のWhymさんに、お尋ねしたくて参りました。

ArchiverBot leaving post behind each week

Hi. Re: Special:Permalink/212522859, any idea why the "Tech News: 2015-51" post is getting left behind each week? I looked at the wikitext source for a bit and didn't see anything obvious. Maybe the bot has some debug output somewhere that explains what went wrong? --MZMcBride (talk) 16:01, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

@MZMcBride: Thanks for spotting this. I believe [1] addresses the problem. One of the lines has "2016" + several words + date and time + "(UTC)" and that was misrecognized as a future timestamp. whym (talk) 12:17, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello Whym, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well. A detailed explanation can be found here. Important: To prevent problems please remove the old VFC installation code from your common.js and instead enable the VFC gadget in your preferences.

Issue with ArchiverBot

Hi Whym, can you check this, please? The two oldest threads in Commons:Help desk as of now (1, 2) should have been archived some weeks ago judging from their dates, but nothing happens. I first thought the issue would have been the time stamp, but my changes (1, 2) seem not to have an effect either. — Speravir – 20:43, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Signature templates are not supported. I suggest using {{subst:unsigned instead of {{unsigned. In order to be recognized by the bot, signatures in wikitext need to look like those entered by ~~~~. Otherwise they are ignored. whym (talk) 03:48, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Alas, this conflicts in the moment with the SignBot (ping @Zhuyifei1999:), latest example: Special:Diff/250408757/250408884. — Speravir – 21:08, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Pinging also @Jmabel: who added the substituted template to one of the questions. — Speravir – 21:42, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
There is another issue: Substituting {{Unsigned}} and siblings leeds to this what we find in these threads, because here these templates are multilingual. Using my start posting from here we get:
  • {{unsigned|Speravir|20:43, 2 July 2017}}: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Speravir (talk • contribs) 20:43, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
  • {{subst:unsigned|Speravir|20:43, 2 July 2017}}: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Speravir (talk • contribs) 20:43, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
  • {{safesubst:unsigned|Speravir|20:43, 2 July 2017}}: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Speravir (talk • contribs) 20:43, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
The biggest issue here is that there is no difference between subst: and safesubst:. — Speravir – 21:45, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
@Whym: {{subst:unsigned|Speravir|20:43, 2 July 2017}} => {{Autotranslate|base=Unsigned|1=Speravir|2=20:43, 2 July 2017|3=}}, which is not only much more unreadable, but still a signature template. We require the unsigned templates to be signature templates to to it's i18n-ability.
@Speravir: safesubst is for a different issue. When substitution fails, {{subst:non-existent template}} is left as is, but Template:Non-existent template is a transclusion. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 00:52, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
Aah. @Jmabel: I think in the moment the best solution would be to look frequently on the oldest threads and to add the {{Section resolved}} template with a short comment when there are no answers for weeks, like I meanwhile did for these two postings we talk about here. Or do you have another idea? (One idea would be to rewrite all the templates to show the full date after substitution …) — Speravir – 17:23, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
The role I've taken on is just to make sure it's clear who wrote the comment when the SignBot doesn't come through, not to keep track of what threads are ready for archive. If there is a better way for me to do that -- in particular, if I should use {{subst:unsigned}} instead of {{unsigned}} -- I can certainly change how I do that. Is {{subst:unsigned}} (or something else) preferred to what I've been doing? Should I just stop doing this? - Jmabel ! talk 19:24, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
@Jmabel: The issue is that neither {{unsigned}} nor {{subst:unsigned}} work for archiving (well, they work for the designed purpose …), so unsigned questions without any reaction are never archived. With {{section solved}} the SpBot is triggered. Actually it would also work, if there was a correctly signed reaction. — Speravir – 02:24, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
(You are right, substitution doesn't get what we want from the signature template here.) @Jmabel: This may be more like a workaround than a solution, but I wonder if it's possible for unsigned comments to get both - a template-based signature to be read by human, and a normal signature to be read by bot, e.g. "{{unsigned|Whym|02:42, 8 July 2017}}<!-- [[User:Whym|whym]] 02:42, 8 July 2017 (UTC) -->". To avoid duplicating, the latter can be commented out. If I recall it correctly, archivebot already recognizes commented-out signatures without issues. On the archivebot side, I have also filed phab:T170034 to deal with templates, but I believe it is going to be rather tricky. whym (talk) 02:47, 8 July 2017 (UTC) Um, actually, you will need to replace the username with "DoNotArchiveUntil" when commenting out. Still, I hope this is simple enough for you to do, Jmabel. whym (talk) 02:52, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
Whym, getting a signature understood by your Bot (SpBot also needs this, but it will be added by {{section solved|1=--~~~~}}) was the intention of what I wrote above in smaller font size (rewriting template). And you're right, {{DNAU}} is a much better workaround, it is not forbidden to write {{subst:DNAU|1}}. — Speravir – 16:52, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
If we need a combination of an {{Unsigned}} template and a comment, can't we create another template that can be subst'd to create both? - Jmabel ! talk 01:29, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
This would be a workaround, of course, but for these luckily rare cases it should be enough to use the DNAU template with 1 day delay after 2 weeks or so. We will see tomorrow. — Speravir – 21:40, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
I miscalculated for 1 day, but it worked and they are archived now, cf. Special:Diff/251377928/251378706. — Speravir – 21:00, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

翻訳依頼

新年あけましておめでとうございます。Commons:Deletion requests/File:10000Yen-Phoenix.JPGにおいて削除依頼を閉じましたが、Jcbさんが指摘される通り、Commons:Currencyには日本の通貨について情報が有りません。そこでWhymさんに私が出典とした箇所を翻訳して頂き、Commons:Currencyに掲載して頂けないでしょうか? お忙しいところ申し訳ありませんが、御一考くだされば幸いです。--Y.haruo (talk) 09:20, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

まず必要なのは著作権に関する情報だと思いますが、よい文献はどれでしょうか? ウィキペディア井戸端の議論中のリンクのうち一応1件には権利関連の記述がありましたが、これだけだとやや弱いです。 http://rnavi.ndl.go.jp/mokuji_html/000002343169.html には直接の答えがありそうです(これは本なので、オンラインの文献もあればいいですが)。http://www.mof.go.jp/faq/currency/07af.htm にあるように印刷物における使用等への法的制限があることも書いておいたほうがいいでしょうか。 --whym (talk) 10:29, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
とりあえず『日本のお金―近代通貨ハンドブック』(大蔵省編集)については直接確認してみたいと思います。(年始なので少々時間がかかるかもしれません。)財務省ホームページは著作権法以外の印刷に関する法的制限を記しておりますが、これはおそらく日本に限ったことでは無く、世界的に紙幣の偽造は禁止されており、Commons:Currencyの冒頭にも記載されていますので、私個人としては不要だと思っております。改めてコモンズに画像を掲載できるかどうかの財務省の見解についてメールにて確認したいと思います。いま暫く時間をくださいませ。--Y.haruo (talk) 14:38, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
遅くなりました。昨日、財務省大臣官房文書課行政相談係の担当者から返信を頂きました。私は昨年の8月の事件を引き合いに出して、通貨及証券模造取締法について財務省へメールを送りました。この事件ではおもちゃの『子供銀行券』をカラーコピーした男が同法違反容疑で逮捕されましたが、そのおもちゃを作成した業者は何の罪にも問われていませんでした。この点を踏まえて財務省に対して鳳凰のページを示し、他人が印刷するとホームページの掲載者が違反になるのかどうかを質しました。しかしながら、担当者からはこれについての返答はなく、財務省ホームページの内容を再度記すのみで法的見解を判断してはいただけませんでした。財務省の見解は「ホームページに載せることは『製造』には当たらないが、印刷された場合は、同法に抵触する可能性がある。」という極めて曖昧なものです。日銀のホームページに同法について記載が有りましたが、そこには「第1条【模造販売禁止】 貨幣、政府発行紙幣、銀行紙幣、兌換銀行券、国債証券及地方債証券ニ紛ハシキ外観ヲ有スルモノヲ製造シ又ハ販売スルコトヲ得ス」とあり、ホームページの画像を他人に印刷された場合に掲載者を『製造者』と認定するのはおかしな解釈ではないかと個人的には思います。(それについての返答を期待していたのですが徒労に終わりました。)
また、『日本のお金―近代通貨ハンドブック』の119頁には確かに著作権についての記載が有りました。そこでは「紙幣のデザインは、その寸法、用紙、表裏の図柄に関する説明文とともに、大蔵相告示により官報で公示されます。著作権法第13条第2項の規定により、国の機関が発する告示は著作権の対象にはなりません。」と記されており、著作権法上は問題が無いことを確認致しました。私はこの記述を基にCommons:Currencyに記載することを望みますが、Whymさんはどのようにお考えでしょうか?--Y.haruo (talk) 15:26, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
ありがとうございました。著作権については要約してCommons:Currencyに書きたいと思います。印刷のリスクに関しては、リスクが小さいかほとんどないにしても「可能性がある」というのは間違いではなさそうなので、書いてもいいのではないでしょうか。書かなくてもいいですが。(余談ですが、財務省としては違反とも違反でないとも言えないと思います。判断するのは裁判所でしょうから。) --whym (talk) 10:41, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
そうですねえ。画像データをウェブ上に置くこと自体は取り締まりの対象とならないことも記されておりますので、財務省の見解として付記してもらって結構です。よろしくお願いします。--Y.haruo (talk) 13:29, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
過日、担当者に対して誠意のある明瞭な回答を求めておりましたが、本日、それに対しての返信が有りました。大意をお伝えしようとも思いましたが、細かいニュアンスが伝わらないかもしれませんので、以下に引用いたします。
『 まず、「過去におもちゃの印刷者やホームページの掲載者が画像を使われたことにより通貨及証券模造取締法違反で罪に問われた判例があるのか」については、当方では承知しておりません。
 次に、「同法に対する財務省の見解」については、紙幣や硬貨の画像をホームページに掲載する行為自体は通貨及証券模造取締法の対象となりませんが、例えば、紙幣の画像とともに模造等の作成方法等をホームページに掲載するなど、犯罪を助長する内容のホームページ等を作成したようなケースでは、模造等の本犯が逮捕等された場合にホームページ作成者や管理者が犯罪を幇助した可能性があるとして、警察に事情を聞かれたり、場合によっては罪に問われる可能性があります。当方ではホームページに掲載されている個々の内容すべてを把握できる立場にないため、財務省ホームページのFAQでは、こうした可能性にも言及している旨をご理解頂けますと幸いです。
 最後に、「https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/鳳凰 で使用している画像は同法に違反するのかしないのか」については、当該画像(紙幣の一部)であっても前述のとおり、例えば、当該画像とともに模造等の作成方法等をホームページに掲載するなど、犯罪を助長する内容のホームページ等を作成したようなケースでは、模造等の本犯が逮捕等された場合にホームページ作成者や管理者が犯罪を幇助した可能性があるとして、警察に事情を聞かれたりする可能性はあると考えます。当方では、このような要件としてどのようなものが存在するか否かを確認できないこと等から、当該画像を掲載し、その画像が第三者に印刷された場合において同法に抵触する可能性を否定できない点、ご理解頂きますようお願い申し上げます。
財務省等では、紙幣の画像をホームページに掲載する場合、その画像が印刷された場合においても本物と誤認されないよう、「見本」や「斜線」を表示しておりますので、ご参考にして頂ければと存じます。
今後とも財務行政にご理解とご協力をお願いいたします。』
とのことでした。例も挙げられており、こちらを付記して頂いたほうが良いかも知れません。ただ、このメールは私個人あてに送られていますので、皆様が確認することは出来ません。OTRSなどにメールを保管したほうがいいのでしょうか?--Y.haruo (talk) 12:48, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
ひとまず確実と思われる著作権関係の部分だけ追記しました。『日本のお金―近代通貨ハンドブック』が説明しているのは紙幣についてだけのようなので、コインについては書きませんでした。「製造」関係のリスクをどう扱うかはコミュニティの議論しだいだと思います。なお、OTRSはコモンズ関係では原則として、メールを通じて送られてきた質問にこたえることと、ライセンスの証拠を保管することにつかわれています。公刊された文献でないとコミュニティの議論の材料にはしづらいので、コミュニティ内での議論や主張の根拠をOTRSに保管することについてわたしは否定的です。 --whym (talk) 04:49, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
お忙しい中、編集並びに返答頂きありがとうございました。今回の件は大変勉強になりました。--Y.haruo (talk) 14:45, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

File:Bloemenwereld, Groningen (2018).jpg

I see that you removed the location information ℹ at File:Bloemenwereld, Groningen (2018).jpg, I opened a thread in the Village Pump before I realised that I could probably just ask you directly as it might not have been a "community" decision to do so, but why was the location data redacted? --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 11:49, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

@Donald Trung: Please see Commons:Bots/Requests/Whymbot and [2] for details, but to put it briefly, I have been redacting location information from the files contributed using the Android app that satisfy a certain criteria, because a vast majority of them are believed to contaion the location information published without the (full) knowledge of the user. But I have to admit it might not be all of them. If you think it doesn't apply to you, (e.g. you are sure that you willingly published the data / you do not really mind publishing any location information from your phone) my apologies. I'm more than happy to revert my actions onto your files. Please be aware that we are talking about upload-time location of your device (which might be your home), not when the photograph was taken. --whym (talk) 12:40, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Denkoji Nara Jizobon.jpgその他について

お世話になります。 File:Denkoji_Nara_Jizobon.jpgですが、著作者に依頼して許可のメールを送っていただいたものの、情報が十分でないというステータスで止まっているようです。 許可申請の説明に従って送ってもらったのですが、情報が足りないのであれば何の情報が追加で必要か明確にしていただけないでしょうか。 また、情報機器操作に慣れていない著作権者様に無理を言って対応してもらっている状況ですので、正直申しまして許可申請の説明に従ったにもかかわらず一度で許可が出ないような状況であれば、説明の方に不備があると考えます。 改善をお願いしたいところです。

また、表題のファイルは許可申請受信=>評価できないのでペンディングという感じになっているようですが、一緒に依頼しました

の方は、まだ許可申請受信の状態になっておらず、もうすぐ1週間で削除されてしまう状況にあるようです。 大変申し訳ありませんが、削除されると困りますので、これらについてもペンディングの状況にしていただけないでしょうか。--Kochizufan (talk) 06:45, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

申し訳ありませんが、対話していただけませんでしょうか。対話拒否はウィキコミュニティの禁忌だと思うのですが...当該ファイル群は削除状態になってしまったようですが、こちらが精一杯誠実に対処したにも関わらずこの対応ということは、ウィキコミュニティは実質著作権者以外のアップロードは拒否する方針という方針という理解でよろしいでしょうか?--Kochizufan (talk) 05:21, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
Kochizufanさん、画像の投稿ありがとうございます。3日ほどログインしていなかったので、お待たせしてしまい申し訳ありません。作者Yasushi Fukunaga様からのメールは拝見しました。permissions-ja@wikimedia.orgからの折り返しのメールは先方に届いているでしょうか。「Ticket#2018092210000113」ではじまる表題での9月27日送信済の質問に対し、今日までお返事がないようです。携帯電話の場合は、メールの受信拒否設定が関係しているかもしれません。もう一件、純粋に到達状況を調べる参考のためですが、「受信通知」ではじまる表題のメール(22日送信)が届いたかどうかもご確認ください。なお、おたずねしたかったのはFacebookで発表済みの作品かどうかという点です。その場合はFacebookのページを介した本人確認が必要になります(未発表の作品であれば、不要です)。確認作業に時間がかかるとき一時的に削除されることは残念ながらよくあるのですが(その原因がしばしばウィキメディア・コモンズ側の対応能力・人員不足にあるのも申し訳ないところですが)、問題がなかった場合はすぐに削除に取り消しいたしますので、ご容赦ください。 --whym (talk) 12:42, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
Whym様、ご返答ありがとうございます。著作権者にメール返答いただいているのですね。著作権者に確認したところメールは来ていないという事でしたので、どうしたらいいのかわからず若干取り乱してしまいましたが、送られているという事であれば、著作権者に迷惑メールなどに入っていないかなど再度確認してみます。もしどうしても見つからないというようでしたら、お手数ですが再送お願いできますでしょうか。--Kochizufan (talk) 02:20, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
事前に指定したメールアドレス以外からの受信を拒否する設定になっていないでしょうか。Kochizufanさんにおたずねすべきだったかもしれませんが、これはもともとFacebookに投稿された写真だったのでしょうか。Facebookに投稿ずみであれば、確認のため、Facebook上のアカウントからのご発言(「以上の写真をCC BY-SA 4.0でライセンスする」など)をいただく必要があります。未発表の写真であれば、これ以上の確認作業は必要ありません。 --whym (talk) 00:16, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
投稿としては、次の2投稿(1, 2)になります。CC BY SAの文言はありませんが、Wikimediaに公開する旨了承する文言はございます。CC BY SAへの言及自体は許可申請メールに含まれていたかと存じますので、セットで確認完了とできないでしょうか。著作権者、およびその友人の方々自体はWikimedia活動に知識があるわけではないので、彼らにとっては暗号でしかない「CC BY-SA 4.0でライセンスする」というような文言を私的な交流の場に加えてくれと強要するのは気が引けます。どうしても必須であれば頼み込みますが...。--Kochizufan (talk) 03:05, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
わかりました。メールとFacebookの両方を踏まえると大丈夫だと思います。ご協力ありがとうございました。 --whym (talk) 13:53, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
復帰確認させていただきました。ありがとうございます、お手数をおかけいたしました。--Kochizufan (talk) 02:24, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

衆議院議員山尾志桜里.jpg

貴殿がCommons:Deletion requests/File:衆議院議員山尾志桜里.jpgで削除する理由がないと述べられた著作者自らがアップロードしたと記述されているこちらの画像ですが、明らかにモデルの国会議員が国会議事堂内で撮影した写真です。モデルの議員の公式Facebookに同時撮影されたと思しき画像があります [3]。アップロードしたMukimuki52氏が著作者であることが証明されておらず、仮に著作権者であっても[Commons:削除の方針]で禁止されている自己宣伝に該当する現状では、削除はやむを得ないと考えられます。ご面倒かとは存じますが、この画像に著作権の問題が存在せず、且つWikimedia Commonsのガイドラインに準拠していると考えられる論拠をお示し下さい。--Huronevict (talk) 16:03, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

仮に関係者が未発表の作品をウィキメディア・コモンズで発表しているのであれば、著作権関連の問題は特にないのではないでしょうか。即座に問題となるのは、第三者が公式サイト等から無許可で転載をしている(ことが疑われる)場合です。「宣伝」についてはCommons:Project_scope/ja#別のウィキメディア_プロジェクトで使用されているファイルが参考になるかと思います。いずれにしても、前回の(即時)削除依頼では、削除しなければならない理由が示されていませんでした。追加の理由があれば、あらためて削除依頼をすることもできます。手順については、Commons:Deletion requests/jaをご覧ください。日本語で助言を求めたい場合は、Commons:井戸端もお試しください。 --whym (talk) 12:32, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
助言いただきありがとうございます。私が確認したところ、写真家が撮影したと考えられる肖像写真はアップロード者が著作権を保持している証拠がない限り一律で削除されていると認識していたのですが、認識不足だったようです。仮に事務所の人間が撮影しアップロードしたのであれば、自己宣伝およびWikimedia Commonsの政治利用に当たるかと存じます。Mukimuki52氏がアップロードした画像はこの1枚しかなく、フリーランスで活動されている写真家であるとは考えられません。この画像がパブリックドメインで公表されたものを第三者がコモンズにアップロードされたのであれば適切な利用ですが、今回のケースはただの政治的な自己PRであると考えられます。この場合は{ {speedydelete|Files and pages created as advertisements} }を書き込むことが適切な対処法でしょうか。--Huronevict (talk) 16:07, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
ウィキメディア・コモンズの方針等は前記のリンク先に書いてあるとおりです。その上で今回Huronevictさんが何をするのが適切かは、ご自身でご判断ください。判断に迷っていらっしゃるのでしたら、前記の井戸端で相談することもできます。 --whym (talk) 10:04, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

In this deletion request, have you noted that it appears the uploader is not the one who took the picture? Veverve (talk) 19:15, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

No, I didn't notice, to be honest. (although I could argue from a standpoint similar to Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag). Shouldn't you rather be asking the deleting admin the question, though? If they want to reopen the deletion discussion, they can. whym (talk) 13:31, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

Strike-through

Hi Whym. Years ago, you uploaded the photo File:Kanpou mokuzi souran 1.jpg, and later on the same day you added a red bar right in the middle of the picture. The edit comment was "strike-through" and that's pretty much what you did: striking through the stamp shown on the picture. The image is use both in the Japanese and the German Wikipedia, and while I don't know if the marking serves any particular purpose on the Japanese one, it sure doesn't in the German one. So can you explain me why you did that modification? And as you probably did it for a reason and will likely vote to keep it, would there be a reason against re-uploading the first version of the image to another file, so the image can be used in German Wikipedia without that strike-through? Thanks in advance. --2A02:110:0:3002:0:0:0:1067 15:22, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Stamps like that are used to authorise something, and I didn't want to help someone else use the image for the purpose of misrepresenting the stamp owner. At least that's what I thought back then. I won't try to convince someone else to take the same view - in fact the argument sounds a little bit meaningless to me now. I still think the image is useful enough with or without the line, though. And just in case you didn't notice, you were logged out when you posted your comment, and users cannot upload at Wikimedia Commons while logged out. whym (talk) 07:34, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
