Wikimedia's volunteer response team (OTRS) handles copyright permissions, email inquiries from the public, reuse inquiries, article errors, and a wide range of non-public inquiries. The email service is operated and managed by a cross-project team of volunteers at the Meta-Wiki level and not by the English Wikipedia community. Actions by OTRS volunteers on English Wikipedia are ultimately subject to review by the Arbitration Committee.

This noticeboard is primarily for
  1. Permissions verification and inquiries for text and files (hosted on the English Wikipedia) said to have been granted permission via OTRS.
  2. Requests for OTRS volunteer review of matters that have been described as OTRS comments or actions.
  3. Other inquiries to OTRS volunteers that do not involve, disclose or reference private material.
Do not post
  • Private information or links to private information (including but not limited to emails, phone numbers, physical addresses).
  • Fishing requests (asking for all details of a ticket or generally probing ticket information). You should make a specific request and clearly state the reason for your request.
  • Additional questions on a point, once an OTRS volunteer has indicated they cannot answer due to privacy issues. (Further inquiries and any complaints should be made via email)
  • Requests for OTRS access (use meta:OTRS/volunteering instead).
  • Questions regarding media hosted on Wikimedia Commons (use Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard instead)
  • Media questions unrelated to OTRS (use Wikipedia:Media copyright questions instead)

The uploader states on description page, "Permission given by Rebecca Wright. OTRS number requested at Permissions, via email." Has this e-mail been received at OTRS and does it confirm the licence? January (talk) 17:23, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

If an e-mail has been received, please also confirm if it covers these files by the same uploader:

Files have been uploaded to Flickr originally. Because of this, I've asked them to follow the usual course of verifying the information. --Mdann52talk to me! 18:00, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
