SpaceX images released under Creative Commons[edit]

Have you heard about this: Celestial Commons: SpaceX Makes Its Photos Easier for Everyone to Use?

My comparative advantage is clearly not in wiki-images so I'd be real interested in your informed opinion on the matter. Cheers. N2e (talk) 17:55, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

N2e, I hadn't seen that yet! Unfortunately, the images are being released are not really free as advertised, since they are licensed as CC-by-nc-2.0, meaning they are non-commercial (images on Commons cannot have restricted use). It's their prerogative, and it's one step closer to truly free material, but at this time it is no-go. Huntster (t @ c) 02:06, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Crud! I was thinking that the "restrictions" the article talked about might be something Wikipedia might not tolerate. My premonition was correct.
Well, keep working with them. I think they ought to be embarrassed by such out of date photos of their stuff on Wikipedia as that 2 1/2 years old photo of the short Grasshopper sitting in Texas, on the ground, well before they ever flew the thing. Here's to hoping your contacts with them will get them to throw Wikipedia a bone. (I wrote them on Wikipedia use of SpaceX media one time too, and they did not even respond to my email.)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── New news. Apparently Elon Musk himself was unhappy about that restricted license, or the press it got following the new news. Either way, according to this thread, Musk has changed it and made the SpaceX images full public domain. Here's a URL a friend just sent me [1] where the topic is being discussed.

Let me know what you think. N2e (talk) 11:04, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

N2e, oh wow, now they're the standard CC-by-2.0. I'm gonna have a busy evening uploading and sorting images when I get home. Musk continues to be my professional hero. Huntster (t @ c) 17:21, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
N2e, looks like a Russavia clone already uploaded most everything to Commons:Category:Photographs by SpaceX. That was fast. Now I just need to go through and verify their categories. Huntster (t @ c) 17:38, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Hooray! There will be a lot of article improvement happening as a result of better images. But I think I'll hold off until categories and file names are sorted over a few days. N2e (talk) 18:11, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Good news! 3 weeks on, SpaceX have released more images on their Flickr stream. There's a really nice one of the entire launch and controlled-descent test sequence that I'm sure will be useful to article improvement. A tip of the glass to you from the Pub, N2e (talk) 23:17, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Great! One had already been uploaded, but I grabbed the others. Nice F9R graphic on there. Huntster (t @ c) 01:58, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
Super. I've just added two of the new ones to articles.
I'm really glad you have that category of SpaceX-released pics. Helps find them. I just wish it showed them in date-added-to-Wikimedia order so we can easily isolate on the new ones each time SpaceX releases another set of them. N2e (talk) 02:52, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
N2e, there's an easy way to check on that. When you're in the category page, look on the left side, under "Tools", for "Related changes". That will show you all the changes made to files in the category in chronological order. Huntster (t @ c) 05:54, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
Great. Thanks for letting me know that. I will now look at that category even more, and be scanning the wikimedia media for new SpaceX-released images. N2e (talk) 04:43, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

A cup of coffee for you![edit]

Cup-o-coffee-simple.svg Thanks for defending the wily comma in Where the Wild Things Are. HullIntegritytalk / 15:37, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Commas are precious resources. I cannot allow them to be mishandled! Huntster (t @ c) 01:59, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

@Huntster: Please stop putting meaningless and crap in articles here:

  • HD 40307 g (crap image, using Photoshop)
  • Kepler-5b (bad Celestia texture using Photoshop, copyvio)
  • Mu Arae e (bad Celestia texture using Photoshop, copyvio)

Just delete my crap images and meaningless artist's impressions. Thanks. :) --Jcpag2012 (a.k.a. John Carlo) from Wikipedia 02:30, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

If you want your images deleted on Commons, go to Commons:Commons:Deletion requests/Mass deletion request and follow the instructions. Don't ask others to do the work for you.

Knoxville, Tennessee[edit]

We may need a lock on this article, due to a persistent vandal. Bms4880 (talk) 17:12, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Bms4880, I've added it to my watchlist. The current level of vandalism isn't enough to justify page protection, but I'll reevaluate if it escalates. Huntster (t @ c) 18:10, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Regarding INS Arihant at launch.jpg usage.[edit]

Hello, i came here clear a doubt that i have about this picture File:INS Arihant at launch.jpg as i have very little knowledge about copyright and commons rules and guidelines, so if possible can you please explain me why this picture cannot be added on Future of the Indian Navy Submarines-Nuclear powered-Arihant class- picture section but allowed only on Arihant-class submarine and INS Arihant. what makes this picture different from others and is it in anyway possible to add this picture in any other related page? thank you :) Nicky mathew (talk) 12:36, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Nicky mathew, that image is not freely licensed, so it's usage must be kept to a minimum. I think it is justified to use the image in the ship and class articles, since the image specifically relates to those, but including it in the Future of the Indian Navy article would be very difficult to justify, especially considering there is a freely licensed graphic of the ship already present.

User talk:TheRedPenOfDoom[edit]

Hi Huntster. Do you visit TheRedPenOfDoom?

Cause I said...thank you. :) --Jcpag2012 (a.k.a. John Carlo) from Wikipedia 01:12, 15 May 2015 (UTC)


Hello Huntster, look I put {{Copy to Commons}} on these files:

You can transfer to Wikimedia Commons. Just okay, thanks. :) --JCP (a.k.a. John Carlo Pagcaliwagan) 07:10, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

KOI-1686.01 (not an artist's impression)[edit]

Hello Huntster. JorisvS wanted to nominate this file for deletion on Wikimedia Commons, because it shows the hurricane photo as seen from space.

The copyrighted violation found from the random internet called Astro-Espace since last months. If the copyright violation is found from laterrej33.jpg to make an artist's impression using Adobe Photoshop (CS5).

If it's not an artist's impression of KOI-1686.01, so delete this file, thanks. :) --JCP (a.k.a. John Carlo Pagcaliwagan) 08:09, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Actually, Jcpag2012, it's you who came to me requesting that I nominate it for deletion. I'm all for deleting this useless image, but you shouldn't distort the facts. --JorisvS (talk) 08:12, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
Jcpag2012, why did you upload and claim it as your own work? Huntster (t @ c) 08:14, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
@Huntster: This is a copyright violation from laterrej33.jpg, you did it, thanks, because the planet does not exist, so artist's impression is not appropriate. :) --JCP (a.k.a. John Carlo Pagcaliwagan) 08:27, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
Jcpag2012, that did not answer my question. Why did you claim it as your own work? Huntster (t @ c) 10:24, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
@Huntster: The answer is yes, because the planet does not exist, so artist's impression is not appropriate. Thank you. :) --JCP (a.k.a. John Carlo Pagcaliwagan) 23:59, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
Jcpag2012, again you refuse to answer my question. I can only assume you intentionally committed a copyright violation. I will not hesitate to block you indefinitely the next time I observe this behaviour. Huntster (t @ c) 08:46, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I will not refuse to answer your question. Do not do that again, thanks. :) --JCP (a.k.a. John Carlo Pagcaliwagan) 08:52, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

File:Noctis Labyrinthus.jpg[edit]

Hello Huntster. Cannot revert, just upload a full resolution on Wikimedia Commons, don't make moiré pattern, okay. :) --JCP (a.k.a. John Carlo Pagcaliwagan) 06:05, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Jcpag2012: You are blocked on Commons. Do not ask others to perform edits for you there, especially edits that are the direct reason why you are blocked! I cannot even fathom your thought processes. Huntster (t @ c) 08:54, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I will not talk to you again. Do not do that again, thanks. :) --JCP (a.k.a. John Carlo Pagcaliwagan) 08:56, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
