There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful informations about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Image:Bay-of-Piran maritime-boundary-dispute.jpgEdit

Whatever -- I dislike very much the fact that you're trying to sneak an allegation into the "disputed map" tag which is simply not supported by the relevant talk pages, since at Image talk:Bay-of-Piran maritime-boundary-dispute.jpg and en:Talk:Gulf of Piran there have been absolutely no remotely credible allegations whatsoever of "NPOV", in any usual or accepted meaning of the phrase. Instead, there have been only semantic hairsplittings over the possible speculated hypothetical potential implications of asymmetrical wording (even though I have explained in great detail that the aforementioned asymmetrical wording has nothing to do with me supporting Croatian or Slovenian positions, but is solely due to Croatia currently being the status quo power), and the use of an exonym. All the disputes are abstractly terminological and metaphysical, and have nothing to do with me advocating any particular position in the dispute between Croatia and Slovenia.

And even more importantly, according to the official policy Commons:Scope#.22Neutral_point_of_view.22 , it is generally not the reponsibility of Commons to adjudicate such matters. Obviously, an image which is being used to spread blatant falsehood can be deleted for that reason, but where there is a legitimate content dispute (some which are a hell of a lot more "POV" than anything involved in the Piran image, such as maps showing the status of Kosovo or Western Sahara) then it is not the role of us here on Wikimedia Commons to make decisions which the individual language Wikipedias can and should make for themselves...

Important proposalEdit

I wrote a proposal for equalizing the different picture formats on FPC Please have a look. Best regards --Richard Bartz (talk) 20:36, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Municipalities of SloveniaEdit

I have seen that you created for example the category Cankova municipality. I just added the towns/villages in that municipality in the short explaining text. I think that that is useful when people search on a village name. Then it is easier to know in which category the image can be put. For example I tried a search on the name "Korovci" and found the image File:Kapela_Korovci.jpg with the category "Churches in Prekmurje". I think we can add to that photo also "Cankova municipality".
I am not familiar with your country Slovenia. What do you think about it?
Just an other idea. I live in Belgium and we have made for all 2419 cities and villages a separate category. Some of them are still empty (no images yet) but the advantage that the structure is there. What do you think, would it be useful to expand the existing 66 municipalities of Slovenia to 210 municipalities? Regards, Wouter (talk) 21:31, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Of course I will make categories for the rest of the municipalities, it's just too much work to do it in one go ;). List of settlements looks useful and I'll probably put it in the rest as well, but as for including images, there is one problem: Slovenia is noted for the lack of imagination in geographic names and some names appear many times throughout the country (see for example the disambiguation page for the name Log). So in some cases it is difficult to know in which of the settlements was the picture taken if it doesn't say in the description page. But yes, sorting existing pictures comes next and I plan to enlist some help from Slovenians when I finish this. For now I'm just categorizing those pictures that are included in the articles about settlements in Slovene WP. --Yerpo (talk) 06:17, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Excellent! The advantage when you do this with the help of other Slovenians is that there will be no typing errors because of the for me "difficult" characters. For situations as you mentioned with "Log" I experienced that it helps sometimes when I put a message on the users page and ask for the exact name and give a link to the disambiguation page. I also "follow" the page of the photo because the user may answer on the user page and/or change it him/her self in the description with the photo. The last half year I work also on Media needing categories and that is why I came accross photos of Slovenia that I wanted to put in the right category. Wouter (talk) 08:04, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Can you give me some examples of photos from Slovenia that are uncategorized? I might be able to help. Is there some pattern (uploader, description, etc.) so I can find them easier? --Yerpo (talk) 20:25, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

To give examples of uncategorized photos is difficult. When I see new ones I will give you the filenames or may be better the name of the user. The most recent ones were almost all that are now in Category:Cankova. You can see it by looking at the photos and looking at the history. Often I look at the other contributions of a user when I have categorized a photo and do a search on a word (for example Cankova) to see whether there are more photos for the same category. Also I look sometimes at the contributions in the gallery presentation because then you can see immediately whether they are categorized (search on "Media needing categories"). In this case I did not do it with User:Lanfra and User:Doncsecz (there you find about 10 examples of uncategorized images). It all depends on the quality of the first photo I see. When very worthwile I spend quite some effort, when very small size or not sharp I just leave them uncategorized. Hope this helps. Wouter (talk) 21:46, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

May be you can help for categoryEdit

Hi, I have seen the photo File:Kabverdi_2_048.jpg without a category. From the description I understand it is Slovenian. Computer translated "Volcanic crater on the island of Sal", but I could not find an island Sal. From the photo it looks more a place where salt is collected from the see. Could you give it the right category? Thanks. Wouter (talk) 14:18, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Hey. It's this Sal. I categorized the image and translated the description. --Yerpo (talk) 17:09, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Concerns on importEdit

Hi. :) Just wanted to let you know that I've listed File:Airbase Cerklje landing.jpg and File:Divača Airport from air wiev.jpg, which you imported from English Wikipedia, for deletion request.

You could've tried finding the image on PLoS pages yourself (it isn't that hard to find) instead of just popping the "no source" template on the description page. They moved the file so the link got broken. I put DOI link under source instead. — Yerpo Eh? 19:58, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Duplicates (?)Edit

In my opinion, File:Anton Azbe Self Portrait.jpg and File:Anton Ažbe 1886 Avtoportret.jpg are not duplicates - I reverted your tag. They are, quite obviously, scanned from different intermediate copies, processed independently and are visibly different in tone curve and white balance / saturation (only a look at the original canvas can tell which is closer to it). The small pic is not a scaled-down clone of a bigger one (which was, BTW, cropped and doctored to remove book title imprinted on its dark background).

Image LicenseEdit

Hi Yerpo,

I'm doing the design for a kids' book about cave animals. I'd like to use your image of Leptodirus hochenwartii. It would be one of seven animals used in the book. It is for very young kids who are just learning to read, but are intrigued by interesting animals. Please reply to anders@mightymedia.com. Thanks!

Image LicenseEdit

Good Afternoon,

I hope you do not mind me contacting you but in searching the internet for images of Chirocephalus croaticus, I came across your image on wikipedia which I would be interested in using for ARKive, if you would like to become involved.

ARKive - www.arkive.org - is a unique conservation initiative.

Films, photographs and audio recordings of the world’s animals, plants and fungi are being gathered into one centralised digital library. To date we have created digital multi-media profiles for over 5,000 species, digitising and storing more than 40,000 still images and over 60 hours of moving footage. These important audio-visual records are being preserved and maintained for the benefit of future generations and are being made available via the ARKive website.

I am able to send some more detailed documentation that will tell you a lot more about the ARKive project should you provide an email address. Please take some time to have a quick look at our award-winning website and see examples of species which have been ARKived at www.arkive.org.

Please let me know if you have any queries. I am contactable at the below email address.

I hope to hear from you soon. Best wishes,

Helen Roddis Helen.Roddis@wildscreen.org.uk

"Over the past few decades a vast treasury of wildlife images has been steadily accumulating, yet no one has known its full extent - or its gaps - and no one has had a comprehensive way of gaining access to it. ARKive will put that right. It will become an invaluable tool for all concerned with the well-being of the natural world.” Sir David Attenborough

"ARKive is a noble project, one of the most valuable in all of biology and conservation practice. It has whatever support I am able to give it." Professor E. O. Wilson, Harvard University

Slovenian emblemsEdit

Hello, yes I saw that you moved some emblems to the Category:Coats of arms of municipalities of Slovenia, I didn't know about this category, but I'll add them from now on.

Is a Creative Commons license not good for these pictures? On the Slovene wiki it says „Slika predstavlja pečat, emblem, grb ali njegov del. Zanjo avtorske pravice ne veljajo ali pa je v javni lasti.“ So as far as it's public property and author's rights cannot apply, it can go under the Creative Commons license as well, no? --Gcsaba2 (talk) 09:12, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

No. The emblem's description is public domain, but the actual image made from this description is a creative work, therefore protected by copyright laws. So you can draw an emblem based on the description yourself and license it any way you wish, but if you get them elsewhere, you have to respect the author's choice of use permission. The appropriate slovenian license template is sl:Predloga:Neprosti simbol, the one you quoted is meant primarily for very old emblem depictions; in other cases, the "V ostalih primerih menimo, da se na Wikipediji tovrstne slike lahko objavljajo pod pogoji poštene uporabe" distinction applies. — Yerpo Eh? 10:29, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

OK so delete all the picture... --Gcsaba2 (talk) 11:17, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

vlada.siEdit

Ne vem, če predloga za vlada.si še velja, ker povezave več ne delajo, toda pod slikami piše "Fotografije so v formatu JPEG in v kakovosti, primerni za tisk. Ob navedbi avtorja fotografije in vira jih lahko uporabljate brezplačno." (npr [1]), kar je ok za zbirko?--Sporti (talk) 17:13, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

V večini primerov piše (foto UKOM), ne vem pa kaj točno naj bi pomenilo (foto: Nebojša Tejič/STA, vir: UKOM)[2]. --Sporti (talk) 07:38, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Ne bi si upal rečt kako je s tem. Splošni pogoji se približno ujemajo z licenco {{Attribution}}, pri fotkah ne-UKOM avtorjev pa dvomim da veljajo. Pomoje bi bilo najbolje napisat mejl in jih vprašat s katero od licenc soglašajo ter kako je s fotkami od STA. Potem naj za ziher napišejo novo pojasnilo na OTRS. — Yerpo Eh? 08:10, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Ja no sredi leta 2010 se končajo lastne slike in starejše so samo še od STA. Sicer pa če že, bi bilo dobro narediti nek standarden dopis glede slik in ga poslati na več državnih oz. javnih zavodov. Tega za vlado je verjetno poslal Dbc334, ker je on ustvaril predlogo. --Sporti (talk) 10:24, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

No pa še nekaj - Galerija Picase Dolina Soče med drugim tudi s precej rastlinami in kakšno živaljo, v glavnem sicer brez imena (če pa jih prepoznaš in so za naložit...). --Sporti (talk) 15:46, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Can you translate the Slovene text on this page (especially in the image)? I need to know if the image is OK for the Commons or not. Thanks in advance. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 02:03, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

It is the same image you dealt with before at sl:Pogovor:Drinske_mučenke#Dovoljenje_za_sliko. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 02:06, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I think it is the same image I dealt with, yes. The permission text is in Hungarian, not Slovene, but as far as I can decode it (with help of Google Translate), it says that the author permits "fair purpose" use on Wikipedia. I'm afraid that both the author and the uploader have a lot of difficulties in understanding the copyleft concept (or even copyright, for that matter). I think that "fair purpose" mentioned in the permission doesn't refer to Fair use in the legal sense, but some vague idea that the image should not be used for anything fishy. Generally, the permission is insufficient for Commons even ignoring the vagueness, because it only mentions "use on Wikipedia".

I tried to explain (here) what has to be done in order for the image to be useful for Commons, but about the only response I got from the uploader was that he doesn't wish to disturb the author anymore. Later, he asked again what has to be written for the author to sign (bottom of that talk page), but we apparently overlooked it. I can answer that again if you think it would help, but that's about the last thing I'm prepared to do for this issue. — Yerpo Eh? 08:34, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

I received an email on OTRS (he sent it to the wrong one the first time around) and it just restated that post. I am going to go ahead and close the discussion as no permission. Thank you for your assistance. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 14:49, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Ni nobene ovire za sliko, torej jo obnoviteEdit

Spoštovani Yerpo!

Mislim, da si narobe razumel, kaj piše v dovoljenju avtorja. Avtor prav hoče, da se slika objavi ne le na Wikipediji, ampak povsod. Ne vem, kaka ovira je tukaj. Po Tvojem zapletenem pismu v angleščini, ki ga jaz ne razumem dosti, so odgovorni pri OTRS prišli do sklepa, da slike ni mogoče obnoviti. Prosim Te, da vzameš na znanje naslednje, ker verjetno ne razumeš madžarsko. Tukaj je original in prevod slikarja slike. Slikar je tudi prvič hotel, da se slika objavi, vendar je pozneje dodal besedo povsod. Sedanji tekst, ki ga je napisal lastnoročno, se torej glasi: Én Tápai István rajzoltam a Drinai vértanúkról szlló képet. Ezt a képet ajándékoztam barátomnak Stebuniknak. Ezt a képet lehet használni a Vikipédijánés mendenhol becsületes célokra. Tápai István 11. április 2011. Prevod: Jaz, István Tápai, sem narisal sliko, ki predstavlja Drinske mučenke. To sliko sem podaril svojemu prijatelju Stebuniku. Ta slika se sme uporabljati na Wikipediji in povsod v poštene namene. Tápai István, 11. aprila 2011. Mislim, da je besedilo zadosti jasno. Če je kaj narobe, ni avtorjeva krivda in mislim, da bi bilo pošteno, da se to upošteva in da se že enkrat dovoli povrnitev slike. Avtor je napisal tako, kot je mislil, da je po Wikipedijinih predpisih najbolje, da bo slika gori. Če je kaj premalo ali preveč, povej, pa bo on napisal tako. Poleg tega: če je on meni sliko podaril oziroma jo naslikal zame, potem je logično prenesel tudi pravice name. Četudi to ne bi bilo, je njegova volja jasna. Ne vem, kje je ovira? Ti si v angleščini tistim na OTRS napisal tako učeno, da so sliko blokirali še nadalje. Če si že napravil to, napravi še to malenkost, da jim pojasniš oziroma pojasni meni, kje naj bi bila v kakem dovoljenju pomanjkljivost. Hvala za razumevanje. Pisanje se pa nanaša na dva fajla: na sliko in pa na dovoljenje, ker slikar nima računalnika.

File:Drina'-1 Tapai.jpg
File:Drina1-Tapai-license.JPG
Dovoljenje za sliko od avtorja Drinskih mučenk.

Če sem narobe razumel, oprosti.

Tvoja razlaga, ko sem še enkrat pregledal, je popolnoma napačna. Če piše slikar: mindenhol, to je povsod, ali to ne pomeni fair use in the legal sense? Ti praviš takole: "fair purpose" mentioned in the permission doesn't refer to Fair use in the legal sense, but some vague idea that the image should not be used for anything fishy.

Ne le slikarjeva, tudi moja volja je, da je slika gori, drugače je ne bi postavil. Ali pa misliš, da jo je on narisal za Wikipedijo zato, da jo bo kdo zbrisal?--Stebunik (talk) 18:08, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
V zadnjem dovoljenju ne piše o "pošteni rabi", ampak da se lahko uporabi povsod in v vse namene. To je napisano in madžarsko in angleško. Angleško piše takole in mislim, da več od tega res ne more nihče zahtevati: "I István Tápai drew 2011 the image of Drina Martyrs. I permis: This image can be used on Wikipedia and everywhere. 2012. III. 1. Tápai István." Če je bilo prejšnje dovoljenje pomanjkljivo, mislim, da to zadnje ni več. Hvaležen bi Ti bil, da dokončaš ta maratonski tek za postavitev nazaj slike. Hvala. --Stebunik (talk) 06:10, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
To dovoljenje spet nič konkretnega ne pove. Zelo točno sem napisal na tvoji uporabniški strani (sl:Uporabniški pogovor:Stebunik) kaj mora pisati v dovoljenju in kam je treba tisto poslati. Povedal sem tudi, da več kot to nisem pripravljen narediti za objavo te slike, niti ni v moji moči. Prosim, da to spoštuješ, kar sem (očitno zmotno) mislil da nameravaš, glede na odgovor "Hvala za pojasnilo in pomoč." — Yerpo Eh? 06:19, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Tebi se to zdi preprosto, zame ni, vendar bom poskusil, seveda ko bo več časa. --Stebunik (talk) 09:47, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

copyrighted imageEdit

pls help me in getting the right license details for the images i uploaded. Kailash29792 (talk) 12:53, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

i've sent an email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org, regarding the Vadivelu image. this is how it was: http://us.mg4.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.rand=33qp5u8jc1hs4, now wat do i do? Kailash29792 (talk) 04:17, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Of course I can't see your e-mails, so I don't know what was in there. If you got permission form The Hindu newspaper, then you just wait and somebody will tag the image as OK. But I have a feeling that you didn't really get any permission because you don't understand the point here: you cannot just take some random picture from some random website and publish it on Wikipedia. That's copyright violation - you can only look at them, but you can't publish them elsewhere. I understand that you want to illustrate the articles, but Wikipedia only accepts works that are free to use for everyone. Some pictures from some website are usually not. Only the author can decide that, and he has to say it explicitly. Articles about Indian film stars will just have to wait until somebody takes a picture of them and decides to share it freely. — Yerpo Eh? 06:19, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Louis Adamič.jpgEdit

I'm surprised at your resoration of rename request after my decline. Another file mover has declined your request.

  1. file is in use on many Wikis &
  2. The en:wp surname is more matching than your suggestion.

Plz do not go for further rename requests of the file. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 09:13, 11 October 2012 (UTC).

Russian Embassy, LjubljanaEdit

Hi Yerpo, I noticed that you took File:US embassy Ljubljana.JPG, and I was wondering if you might be able to help with a photo of the Russian Embassy in Ljubljana. It is required as per User:Russavia/Required_photos#Slovenia. The embassy is located at Tomšičeva Ulica 9, and it next to the US Embassy (I believe). Can you possibly help with that? Cheers, russavia (talk) 00:59, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do, but I can't promise it soon; I don't live in Ljubljana so it will have to wait until I go around the center with my photo equipment again some day. — Yerpo Eh? 15:23, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
First make sure it passes Commons:FOP#Slovenia. I couldn't find anything about the building. --Sporti (talk) 16:00, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately it's unfree (work of Costaperaria, who died in 1951).[4] Photos of it will be eligible for Commons only in 2022. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:10, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
That's ok, whilst we can't host it on Commons, it can be uploaded to say dewiki and other local projects where FOP rules aren't taken into consideration. Then in 2022, we can move it to Commons :) russavia (talk) 19:02, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Zdravo, zdaj imamo naslednji predlogi za Slovenijo: Template:PD-Slovenia in Template:PD-Slovenia-exempt (velja tudi za slikovna gradiva v uradnem listu, ne samo za tekst).[5] (str. 28) --Eleassar (t/p) 13:11, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Ajdovščina municipalityEdit

Hi, as you've created Category:Ajdovščina municipality. Per [6], its name is grammatically incorrect, therefore it should be renamed either to 'Ajdovščina (municipality)' or 'Municipality of Ajdovščina'. Which version seems better to you? I'd choose the first one for easier sorting. --Eleassar (t/p) 08:32, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

All categories of municipalities in Slovenia are named this way. --Sporti (talk) 08:52, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
I have been thinking of renaming them so that the titles will be grammatically correct. Do you think this would be redundant? Is there any other objection to this? --Eleassar (t/p) 09:20, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
I suggest we come to a consensus on :en, first. — Yerpo Eh? 14:32, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
I hope we've reached a consensus there. Please let me know if there is some additional issue in naming these articles. In addition, also names such as 'Mokronog - Trebelno municipality' are grammatically incorrect: we should use the en dash instead of a hyphen (or minus sign). --Eleassar (t/p) 09:21, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

AnimalsEdit

Hi, do you know perhaps the species in the following two images?

Thank you. --Eleassar (t/p) 21:00, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Another one, albeit a bit more unsharp, is File:Skrzat Okroglice.jpg. --Eleassar (t/p) 21:18, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Butterflies could be Melitaea athalia, although I don't know butterfly taxonomy nearly well enough to dare say for sure. The turtle looks like a European pond turtle with almost completely abraded carapace. The third is quite unsharp, but it's definitely a grasshopper, not a cicada. — Yerpo Eh? 06:09, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. I have some additional images (animals and plants) and will upload them gradually so any help in identification is more than welcome. The turtle definitely looks like Emys orbicularis. In any case, I have to buy asap those macro (extension) rings. Have a nice stay in Italy. --Eleassar (t/p) 06:31, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

It probably doesn't make much sense to upload images as unsharp as the grasshopper if you don't know the ID, the rest I can have a look at. — Yerpo Eh? 08:05, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

It was the worst, because it was taken from distance with a strong zoom. I hoped you could nonetheless recognise the species. --Eleassar (t/p) 08:25, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

File:20120622-Pentatomidae-1.JPG and othersEdit

(Copied from User talk:MHM55)
The bugs depicted in the set you took are almost certainly Acanthosoma haemorrhoidale, so Acanthosomatidae, not Pentatomidae.

Dishonest and distastefulEdit

Why don't you take a wikibreak for some time to think about how you communicate with the people around yourself? --Eleassar (t/p) 11:52, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Do you have any idea how patronizing this sounds? You're not exactly in the position to be able to act this way. — Yerpo Eh? 14:27, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
You think that as a dr., you may now run around and insult people like you see fit, don't you? Congratulations for the title, but I find these insults dishonest and distasteful, and I'll tell you a secret: they don't go well with it. --Eleassar (t/p) 14:47, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
Sorry if my first reply wasn't as diplomatic as could be expected, but in my opinion, you were taking words out of context (later repeating it several times), which is in fact dishonest, at least in my book. Dragging my title into this is really low, so please, refrain from commenting this further on my talk page, I don't want this to spiral out of control. — Yerpo Eh? 15:40, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
I've removed my comment and apologise to you for mentioning your title in relation to the conflict. No matter how hard I sometimes find to edit here and how much hatred and dislike I feel directed towards me, it was wrong that I tried to escalate the conflict instead of finding a way to talk to you about my concerns in a mature way. The point that I wanted to make is that we are both members of the same project and we have to learn to collaborate respectfully and assume good faith despite evidently fundamental differences in our viewpoints. If we can't come to agreement, then it is the best to get an impartial third opinion. As to taking words out of context, I've already explained to you that I have not taken words out of what you perceive as the necessary context to mislead, but because it didn't seem necessary to me. --Eleassar (t/p) 20:51, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
It seems to me that both of us have to get used to breathe in and count to 10 before replying in discussions like this. I understand that I can get undiplomatic when irritated (for which I apologize), but please also understand that each particular discussion isn't conducted in vacuum, unrelated to others. Expecting the same starting attitude when discussing very similar controversies over and over again ignores basic human psychology. Yes, AGF is crucial, but we're just human and when we talk about something as vague as the relation of actual works to an unknown legal standard, there is a lot left to imagination.
So we must figure out how to deal with Slovene FOP/DM cases as a community (at slwiki), because impartial foreigners aren't familiar with situation in our country and would have to operate with even more assumptions than us. At the end, it always comes down to a third opinion anyway (the closing admin's). I believe the right way is to dig up as much specific literature as possible, maybe seek an expert opinion, and then apply that in a consistent manner. Until we do, applying the worst case scenario within a range of vague interpretations does way more harm than good and should be avoided, in my opinion. — Yerpo Eh? 13:31, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
The fact is that I also had to get used to keep the same attitude when discussing similar unfounded objections again and again. I believe that foreigners are actually better at judging the situation, exactly because they are mostly not personally invested and are thus more impartial. However, they must be given all available relevant information. It is not about applying the worst case scenario, but applying the policy that when we don't know / are not sure of the copyright situation, we delete the image. On the rest, I agree with your reasoning. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:10, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

I've provided the source that I've mentioned.[7] --Eleassar (t/p) 11:49, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I saw, I'm typing the answer right now. — Yerpo Eh? 12:44, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

File:Flag of Koper.gifEdit

Hi, if the municipal coats of arms are covered by the public information act, then probably an UDR would be in place for this file. I'm not sure how to formulate it though. --Eleassar (t/p) 19:41, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

I'll think about it. — Yerpo Eh? 17:15, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Flagging images I've uploadedEdit

Hello Yerpo. I saw you have flagged some of the images I've uploaded as up for deletion, because there is no proof of license. Well, in both cases (Gary Yourofsky and Laurent Bisch) I have contacted the authors of the images (which depict themselves in person) and asked for permission to put it on Wikipedia. Both have agreed to this. Therefore, I do not believe the images should be deleted. However, seeing as both persons are not users (that I know of) on any of the Wikimedia projects, I can't get them to come here and say this out loud to everyone.

I don't think the pictures should be deleted, but do as you see fit. If they do end up deleted, there will be no hard feelings from me, as I understand why it was done.

Thanks for your photo!Edit

Hello!

My name is Laurie and I'm the Project Manager for na2ure, an NYC-based startup toy company. We featured this photo of yours (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Aphid-giving-birth.jpg) in our upcoming app, and wanted to thank you. Thank you!

na2ure is all about designing science play. We developed a game-changing platform called ferret that classifies ecological data into an intuitive network that can be easily learned through play. The high end value of our work attracted STEM>STEAM icon John Maeda, as well as the VCs behind LittleBits, Sphero, Makerbot, and Shapeways. The science has been vetted by MD's and PhD's, tested by kids, and praised by educators as appealing to all ages.

None of this would have been possible without your work. Thank you.

The app is available on the iOS platform and will be released to the public soon. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Anigramit) and Twitter (@anigramit) for a quick, easy way to share the news with your social media network -- and to keep up to date on all the great stuff we’re doing.

Again, thank you! Laurie Vazquez Project Manager, na2ure manager@na2ure.com

Hi, thanks for the notification, but I'm not the author. The photo was taken and first uploaded by the now inactive user MedievalRich at the English Wikipedia project, I just transferred it to Commons. Make sure that he is credited, not me. — Yerpo Eh? 15:50, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
