Hello, I was away from Wikipedia for a while. You deleted File:StereocardCarabao.jpg - (F4: File without a source for more than 7 days) was the reason stated on April 25,2014. I need to work on the file again, but don't remember what parameters were missing since image was on Carabao page for several years until someone replaced it with a modern picture. Is it possible to undelete image temporarily at this late date, so I can see the original. Thanks - Athrash | Talk 00:58, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
- If you send me an email via Special:EmailUser/TLSuda then I can reply with an attached image. I can also send you a copy of what the description page looked like. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 12:05, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

It is not replaceable with a free equivalent. Please do not delete fair-use images that you have not found a free equivalent for. I do not check my wikipedia account daily.--Craigboy (talk) 19:01, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
- First, it is replaceable. It is an artist's rendition of what the vehicle would look like. Anyone could, with the specs, create their own rendition and release it under a free license. Second, this not how WP:NFCC#1 works. A free equivalent does not have to exist or be found for a file to be deleted. It only has to be able to be created, then it fails WP:NFCC#1 and then we delete it. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 19:34, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Yateesh M. Acharya
May I know the reason to remove the picture from Yatessh M. Acharya page? I've taken a written permission from the artist to use the picture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jatilsharma (talk • contribs) 09:28, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
- You have to show evidence of permission where the original copyright holder of the photo (not the subject) who is usually the photographer is releasing the rights under a free license. See the process at WP:CONSENT. The file was tagged as non-free so it was deleted because it could be replaced, therefore failing WP:NFCC#1. It would have still be deleted as no evidence of permission as we have no proof that the photo was released how you claim. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 11:22, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Mark Lawrence (bishop)
Hello. You recently deleted a photo that I added of Mark Lawrence, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. I got the photo from the photo gallery on the media room section of the diocesan website, where a caption describes each photo as "shared publicly." I tried to provide adequate information about this in my upload. It certainly sounded to me like the photos had been released into the public domain for purposes such as this. Can you help me figure out what I need to do differently? Thanks. Dunncon13 (talk) 14:22, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
- "Shared publicly" is not the same as release into the public domain. We need evidence that the image is released into the public domain. You could reach out to the Diocese and see if they would follow the directions at WP:Consent or by including a statement on their website that the file is released into the public domain.

Regarding this warning, I wonder if that user's continuing campaign against me would have any relevance. If not, fine, I'll just work on developing thicker calluses. ~ J. Johnson (JJ) (talk) 23:01, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
- I don't see any "campaign" against you. I think you just need to listen to what is said at WP:ANI. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 23:55, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
- Absolutely. I'll take another look at your draft and then probably move it soon. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 19:02, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! (The Photo of the B-50 at Biggs AFB)
Apparently you received my message regarding my inadvertent uploading of the photo of the B-50 at Biggs AFB. As soon as I realized my mistake, I notified the folks at "Media Copyright" as soon as possible.
As you know, I was just trying to learn how to upload a photo. Well, I guess I learned "too well!"
Apparently, you are the person who actually deleted my inadvertent uploading. Thank you.
I admit that I am fairly new to editing or making any "edit requests." And, today was my first try at learning how to upload a photo. Heck, I still get confused as to which "talk" page to use in corresponding or to get replies! (Yours, mine, or someone else's?)
As a clear example, I happened to stumble into your brief message saying that you had deleted the photo. I found it by looking back at my “Contributions” page and clicking on the "Media Copyright” contribution that I had made earlier. (That is, it wasn't on my talk page, Eeekster's talk page or your talk page.)
Golly, if someone writes to me, how am I to know without a lot of “digging?”
Nevertheless, the photo was indeed deleted per my frantic request. Yet, I was sorry to see it go. (My Dad was a SAC bomber pilot, and, we were stationed at Biggs AFB for a while. While at Biggs, Dad flew B-29s, B-50s and B-47s.) But, as I admitted earlier today, I had not yet checked copyright issues.
Rest assured that I will be much more careful in the future. Hopefully, one day I can upload that photo again. I know that I am prejudiced when I say that I think it is a pretty darned-good photo, not to mention its connection to Dad.
Thanks again for your time and attention. Oh, no reply is needed, OK? (Besides, how would I find it?!)
