Thanks for taking the bullet on this. You're a better man than I. Face-smile.svg Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:18, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

@Cyphoidbomb: He was being lazy and could have easily added a proper cite himself as he had all the info. He did somewhat meet WP:BURDEN, though, as the in-line info he gave (source, date) was sufficient, though harder than necessary, to verify the info he added, which is what I did.

Well, then I was being lazy too. There was a teach-a-man-to-fish aspect though. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:42, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
@Cyphoidbomb: You took the time to make a good attempt to educate but some people just refuse to make the effort to learn stuff per this on your user page. Geraldo Perez (talk) 17:06, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

CSD or PROD?[edit]

GP, could you please look at Arthur (season 19). I nommed it for speedy delete under hoax criteria, but a third editor EoRdE6 didn't think it qualified. The refs being used relate to season 18, not 19, so to me it looks like a kid's trying to introduce BS, where EoRdE6 is assuming good faith that the kid is a n00b and just copy/pasted content to get the article started. I'm PRODing it for now, but your feedback is appreciated and I don't mind being wrong. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:42, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Episodes named are supported by Zap2it but listed for season 18 as you noted. I think editor is good faith declaring a new season because of the gap but that is not supported by the references. PROD looks good for this, doesn't really meet speedy criteria as it is possible he is right but doesn't have supporting references. Geraldo Perez (talk) 16:53, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I think I'm going to pull back on this one. Although I can't find a good ref that supports S19 (this is garbage) but there are whispers). Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:55, 15 May 2015 (UTC)


Hello, User:Geraldo Perez, thank you very much for the appreciative help regarding copyright and its basic rules, but I have a really good question that has been bothering me lately, I know I cannot upload directly to Commons from the internet without the use of permission from the author, but if I was the author of the file, e.g a picture, that I only did a screenshot of it from a device, then used it to upload to Commons. Does that violate any rules whatsoever? I personally find this question a good one, but I bet that numerous users have asked. The users will see it as the file being uploaded from the internet, obviously, and have a report of copyright. I intend desperately to know how does this works, if you please User:Geraldo Perez. Thanks again in advance. ~Cry (talk) 19:41, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

@CryOCed: Simple rule for Commons that will keep you out of trouble:
Don't upload anything and claim it as yours unless you personally took the picture with your own camera. No screenshots, no pictures found on net.
Some of that may be permitted if you carefully know and follow the rules but when starting out it is better to keep it easy to understand. Anything you yourself didn't take with your own camera belongs to someone else. You don't get to claim ownership if you just copied it or modified it either. It might be uploadable if you can prove permission, but you must accurately state who owns it, where you got it, what the license is, and where the permission can be found. Full set of Commons rules are at c:Commons:Copyright rules, also mentioned in welcome and copyright messages at c:User talk:CryOCed. Geraldo Perez (talk) 20:01, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I am much delight for the informative reply User:Geraldo Perez, Thank you so much. Now I finally got it inside my cortex, but if I was to screenshot something and upload it into Commons, does that mean I can use the "Upload file from your own work" category? or should I find another picture of the same type and find the author that I can ask to grant me permission? ~Cry (talk) 20:10, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
@CryOCed: Pretty much anything you screenshot can't be uploaded to commons, particularly anything from a TV show. Don't use "Upload file from you own work" category unless it is a picture you personally took with your own camera. Some stuff Commons won't permit may be uploadable to the ENWiki (here) if you can justify fair-use - see WP:Image use policy and use WP:File Upload Wizard here. Commons is the preferred location for free-use stuff as all wiki projects can use it, not just this one.
@Geraldo Perez: Thank you for the informative answer, now I know why my pictures kept getting deleted, sorry for the picture spam and thank you very much. :) ~Cry (talk) 05:21, 19 May 2015 (UTC)


SuperMarioChris: Maybe a Kuhn sock? Sonic references in his User:SuperMarioChris/sandbox[1][. Creation of Gumball S4 article [2] (misspelled "or") setting up Gumball S4 in List of article, only to revert it. Worth an open eye, I think. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 01:07, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
