Please help thereEdit

in choosen pictures without copyrigths, because you sent me a warning and I only try to help the page — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikiplayer99 (talk • contribs) 01:46, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

@Wikiplayer99: Hi,
You are not allowed to copy files from the Internet, unless 1. you have a permission from the copyright owner, or 2. the file is in the public domain, and you have to show why it is not under a copyright. I fixed your first upload, which was fine, but others are not. File:Muerte de Anita Garibaldi.jpeg may be in the public domain due to age, but you need to provide the author, date, and source.

Freda Dudley Ward imagesEdit

Thank you for undeleting File:Freda Dudley Ward.jpg per Commons:Undeletion requests/Archive/2015-10#File:Freda Dudley Ward.jpg. Unfortunately the other two images in the same DR (File:Freda Dudley Ward01.jpg and File:Freda Dudley Ward - 1918.JPG) which were also undeleted are not also by Bassano, they are by photographers who died less than 70 years ago so are still unfree in the UK. Please could these be re-deleted – I will list them for undeletion in the appropriate years? January (talk) 08:30, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Echinocereus reichenbachiiEdit

Hello, Yann. I tried File:Echinocereus reichenbachii by RO.jpg at featured pictures, but it failed. Can I try again, or is it one time and out? Rationalobserver (talk) 23:53, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

@Rationalobserver: Hi,
There is no rule which prevent a failed nomination to be done again. But experience shows that unless there is some improvement, renominating failed pictures usually get even less support votes than the first. In short, you better try something else. Regards, Yann (talk) 00:10, 13 November 2015 (UTC)


I didn't read all the licenses to upload a photo, I've uploaded some photographs which 're taken by me. And previously some map of out locality. But I did a mistake by uploading the photographs of Oriya film poster from different websites with the source code, but those were deleted. But I've a photograph taken on July 30 about Rasagola has also been deleted. Now, I'm sorry what I did. I never upload those pics.. Gapu (User talk:Ssgapu) 18:23, 13 November 2015

Figura 1118.jpg and copyright violationsEdit

Hello Yann

I'm having several problems to upload files and attach images on my work.

I created a picture (Figura 1118.jpg) and you send me a messenge to perform some changes.

That was did.

Now i've some doubts about copyright violations and upload files.

I Found (Figura 1111.jpg,Figura 1112.jpg,Figura 1113.jpg,Figura 1114.jpg,Figura 1115.jpg,Figura 1116.jpg,Figura 1117.jpg) In a public forum and i used that to explain my work, these pictures completed the main goal of the page.

So if that was a copyright violations, have i another way to share these pictures on wikipedia ?

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by ClaudiaSasaki (talk • contribs) 17:38, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

@ClaudiaSasaki: Hi,
It seems that your files are scanned from a book. So the book author and/or publisher owns the copyright. If you are one of them, or have a permission, please send it via COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:43, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
I see your point, if i didn't found the copyright permission, how should i procede to show the image or refer that in wikipedia? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ClaudiaSasaki (talk • contribs) 21:02, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
@ClaudiaSasaki: You may also upload it instead locally at the English Wikipedia. They accept non-free images and fair use, but you must include a fair use rationale there. But don't upload it here at Commons. Commons only accept free content, and doesn't allow fair use. Poké95 04:03, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

most pictures are from my personal file of photos that I captured with my Nikon , others from local historic book. So I have to replace the "own" word with the source title? right? please leave me a message. Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_Viliop. Viliop (Talk Viliop)

@Viliop: Hi,
For old paintings, you need to provide the painter's name, and the date of the painting (at least approximately). For photographs, you need the formal written permission from the photographer. Since I don't speak Greek, I can't do it for you from the page you linked. Please see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:07, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Removing ImagesEdit

Hi Yann,

I can't seem to fathom what I'm doing wrong with images. I've checked with the publisher of the content who provided email permission allowing us to use the image. I can't find it posted online ANYWHERE other than our personal flickr page. Could you enlighten us to what we are doing wrong? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 375mon (talk • contribs)

@375mon: Hi,

File:Raja Harishchandra- 1913- India's First Silent Film.webmEdit

Hello Yann, le statut des droits sur les 21 premières minutes de cette version du film n'est pas clair. Il ne s'agit pas du film original mais d'un documentaire à son sujet, avec un générique de fin. C'est pourquoi j'avais téléversé de mon côté File:Raja Harishchandra (1913).webm, au demeurant dans une meilleure résolution. Il est notoire que si le film original faisait environ 40 minutes, il n'en subsiste pas une copie complète [1]. J'ai téléversé une version sans le documentaire initial. Il faudrait supprimer la version antérieure. Cordialement, — Racconish ☎ 10:11, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

@Racconish: Bonjour,
OK merci. J'ai caché l'ancienne version. Il faut aussi noté qu'il existe une autre version, produite en 1917. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 15:47, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Tasos Georgiou VatikiotisEdit

Because I am also personally getting extremely annoyed and do not care to continue who from Wikipedia can help us upload these images under the correct license? This is the worst experience I've had in my professional career in anything I've been involved with. We have 2 images that are for public view, one from a yearbook who we called and they said it's free for all public and one from a newspaper who also confirmed we can use it. This is very important to this story as they are big highlights.

Instead of every Wikipedian jumping on us like leaches, are there any good citizens out there that can tell us what license they want these 2 images under so they can leave us alone and so we can have peace in our lives and move on from this for the love of God?


thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Goodfellabear (talk • contribs) 17:38, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

@Goodfellabear: Hi,
You must read COM:L before uploading anything here. If the files are not made directly by you, the copyright owner needs to send a formal written permission. Idem if the content has been previously published elsewhere. Please see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Please ask me if you have more questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:31, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Yann, this is becoming annoying because the OTRS helpdesk gave HappySquirrel instructions on how to load up our 2 very personal and very important images on to our article. 1 is from Loyola's yearbook which I took and Loyola has told us many times that all of their yearbook stuff is good for public use and the other one is from a newspaper clip Tasos was mentioned on in the Herndon Observer - the newspaper does not exist anymore but that newspaper clip has been distributed in all of Herndon, all of Reston, within high schools and Tasos himself has given us permission to use. Please allow us to complete this wikipedia story the way we want without being such a strict Wikipedia police officer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Goodfellabear (talk • contribs) 00:27, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Also Yann, I see you remove many images from all over - our images our personal images of Tasos Vatikiotis as he himself has give permission to use the Herndon Observer newspaper article as well as his picture in his college's yearbook - happysquirrel and the tea party (both wikipedians) got permission from the OTRS in June, near 5 months ago and everything has been fine until you came along and absolutely deleted both images - if you are so well round and such a good Wikipedian tell us the correct licensing code to put so we can go about our way with peace of mind - *STOP threatening us and embarassing us and HELP us - HappySquirrel helped us back in June and now you have ruined it for us. Thank you in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Goodfellabear (talk • contribs) 00:39, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
@Goodfellabear: Hi,
As I wrote above, please send a permission and the files can be undeleted. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:15, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
    • Yann, please undelete the photos and put the correct permissions on there since you are an active Wikipedia editor - these are normal and down to earth photos of the mentioned person playing soccer in college and being highlighted in a local newspaper - we are not creating a gateway to Mars or anything - please get permission via the OTRS or classify them with correct licensing code - these are simple images, nothing complexed about them. There is nothing private about them - they are public images that have been printed by the thousands. Please lead by example and get this sort it out. Thanks.
    • Yann, please lead by example and help with this issue. As Ghandi said, "be the change you want to see in the world" and as your front page reads - A novice was once curious about the nature of the Edit Count. He approached the Zen master and asked, "Zen master, what is the nature of the Edit Count?" "The Edit Count is as a road," replied the Zen master. "You must travel the road to reach your destination, and some may travel longer roads than others. But do not judge the person at your door by the length of the road he has traveled to reach you." And the novice was Enlightened.

I have seen this page before removing your thumbnail. You should use a logo instead. A thumb like this is quite disturbing, and doesn't bring any additional value.
