Photo DeleteEdit

Can you delete "File:Türk Telekom yeni logo.jpg"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Farukacan (talk • contribs) 09:25, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Have they uploaded files "despite requests from editors not to do so, and despite their instructions"?

I just saw three in a row that I wasn't sure about which I tagged for attention. Their account was created less than four hours ago and their talk page here and on Wikipedia shows no previous warnings.

The languageEdit

Hello.I am bad in English, and I use Google translate, does this prevent nomination of suitable images, or to obtain rights? --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 12:14, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 Hi,
Sorry, I don't speak Arabic either. But 1. don't remove FPX template. Only someone else voting for support can do it. 2. You confuse MB (megabytes) and Mpx (megapixels, there are articles in Arabic Wikipedia). The limit is 2 Mpx (1600 x 1250 pixels), not 2 MB. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:51, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Image deletions from Glasgow Science Festival pageEdit

Hi Yann

A number of images from the Glasgow Science Festival Wikipedia page were deleted. These images are owned by Glasgow Science Festival, of which I am an employee. I was tasked by the festival Director to upload these photographs, for which we own the copyright. Can you explain why these images have been removed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anyzaz (talk • contribs)

@Anyzaz: Hi,
For all content previously published or not directly created by you, a formal written permission is needed. Two of the files are credited to Bartosz Madejski, and the third is from Fiona Higgins. Please see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:57, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

File:Georgia Revolution FC Crest.pdfEdit

Hi Yann. Would you mind checking File:Georgia Revolution FC Crest.pdf to see if it's the same as the previously deleted File:Crestpng.png and File:New Crest.jpg. I've posted about this the problems with such logos before on User talk:Eric.morrison1332#File:Crestpng.png, but the uploader did not respond. It could just be a case that they are unaware of how Commons works regarding non-free logos, but I'm not sure what else can be done to try and explain things to them. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:01, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

@Marchjuly: Hi,
Yes, it's the same. Deleted, user warned. Regards, Yann (talk) 22:15, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for checking. -- Marchjuly (talk) 13:35, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi again Yann. Same uploader just added File:Ga Revs FC Crest.png. Not sure whether they simply do not understand the messages posted on their user talk or are just ignoring them. I left a message at en:User talk:Eric.morrison1332#Wikimedia Commons images in case they check that page more frequently, so they cannot claim to have not been informed. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:35, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

An opinion?Edit

Greetings Yann: I found [1] that page this morning when I had run out of time even to think. I see a pile of "self" images which cannot be, but can you imagine the size of the DN if I put them all on one? What do you suggest? Thanks! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:53, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I don't see a lot of issues. Most files are correctly sourced and licensed for me. These are old files, so I think Commons is the source of most copies on the Internet. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:26, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi, we must be looking at different things. VFC shows these all as "self" but searching finds things like "all rights reserved" and then this image File:Habiru_head.jpg claimed self. The whole gallery seems shot through with problems like that. Yes I realize these are older images, but I don't think they're all free. Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:53, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
OK, this one is not OK. I deleted it. Any other issue? Regards, Yann (talk) 19:30, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Yann, as per the user's explanation, he innocently uploaded copyvio images (scanned copies/camera pics of already published images) AND HIS OWN IMAGES.

Undeletion requestsEdit

Николай Hi, May be a discussion on the VP is needed? Regards, Yann (talk) 19:00, 5 February 2016 (UTC)


Hello Yann,

Not sure what else I need to do to have this image undeleted. The image is marked public domain, is from Prince Ali's Flickr account, and part of his "Stock Photos" album for anyone to use his provided images. The photos are part of his campaign to be the president of FIFA. They are in use and connected on his various sites: PeterWesco (talk) 22:39, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

@PeterWesco: Hi,
There is no general agreement about these files. In this case, it is even more a problem since Prince Ali is not the photographer. May be you could ask on Flickr that the license should be changed to CC-0, or to get a permission via COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 23:23, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I will see if he responds to a message and ask him to change to CC-0. He may not be a photographer, but one can assume he paid for full rights to the photos as he is releasing them as "Stock Photos" to the press. Thanks for the response, I will let you know if he responds and if he updates to CC-0 PeterWesco (talk) 11:54, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
@PeterWesco: Hi,

Salut Yann,

This is in response to my un-delete request for BeatBuddy— I am the creative director of the site who created the image in question. I actually realize that all our content on the site is Copyright as well: please visit, which has the image in question. That page, containing the image, has © 2016 BeatBuddy on the bottom. I respectfully request that I be allowed to re-upload that same image (I might change the licensing on it). You can email me at for more info. I hereby swear that I am the originator and creator of this work. There is already our copyright on it, so Music Connection cannot legally appropriate their own copyright on it.

Block WarningEdit

Thanks for the warning, I won't upload anything from now on (even if it's not copyrighted). As for the last two deleted uploads, File:Messi Copa America 2015 MVP.jpg and File:Camp nou mes que un club.jpg. It's stated on flickr, the first under Attribution license: why was it deleted? the second is under Attribution-NoDerivs, and I didn't know that NoDerivs is prohibited here: Plus I uploaded them all in once, meaning the requests came after all uploads, all in 28 January not one after the other and I saw them only two days ago including yours, I rarely come to commons, so I didn't ignore the requests on purpose.

Another thing, just to make sure I avoid the block you told, is these images in the links below, illegal to upload just in the concerned article FC Barcelona?

  • Please do not tag redirects as speedy. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
