photos d'archi effacées[edit]

Bonjour, Oui l'idéal est de restaurer les uploads originaux pour l'historique et le nom de l'auteur, mais je n'ai pas les droits d'admin ici et les admins se soucient généralement peu (ou se méfient) de restaurer des images déplacées sur Commons puis effacées. Par contre je me tiens à ta disposition pour restaurer des images en urgence. Greudin (talk) 19:33, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Hello, je suis repassé sur l'article, elles ont encore été éffacées en masse, pas trop le temps d'enquêter mais as-tu une explication, je pensais avoir montré patte blanche pourtant ? Greudin (talk) 12:25, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: Source d'une image[edit]

Mmm je viens de check et on n'avait pas de source ici non plus. Potentiellement ça ne serait pas gênant si l'image était bien PD mais tu me mets un doute là: je me demande si cette pièce existe vraiment vu qu'elle n'est pas sur le site de la banque. -- lucasbfr talk 07:37, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Chambly-Borduas[edit]

J'ai vu ta contribution à la page sur la circonscription fédérale de Chambly-Borduas (ajout du candidat du NPD). J'aimerais s'il-te-plaît savoir quelle est ta source, puisqu'ailleurs cela semble incertain si le NPD se présentera dans cette circonscription. 70.83.33.107 (talk) 03:08, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Bonjour, J'ai indiqué la source de chaque ajout en note dans la page contenant la liste des candidatures, par exemple New Democratic Party of Canada candidates, 2011 Canadian federal election, (et de même pour les listes des candidats des autres partis). (Je n'ai pas recopié ces notes dans chacune des pages de circonscription, puisqu'elles vont devenir inutiles après l'élection lorsqu'on aura les sources vers les résultats d'élection.) Dans le cas de ce candidat, on voit que la source était tout simplement la liste des candidatures sur le site de son parti, telle qu'elle se lisait à ce moment-là (voir site du NPD). Maintenant, ces listes elles-mêmes sur les sites des partis ont connu quelques changements au cours de la dernière semaine et il se peut que quelques noms soient à revoir à la suite des listes définitives. Toutefois, le candidat prévu par le NPD dans Chambly-Borduas est toujours sur la liste à ce moment-ci. Et une vérification sur le site d'Élections Canada montre que sa candidature est aussi officiellement confirmée auprès d'Élections Canada : voir site d'Élections Canada. -- Asclepias (talk) 11:15, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

April 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Manicouagan (electoral district). When removing content, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the content has been restored, as you can see from the page history. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you.

Please do not change information that has been updated due to recent changes in the candidacy of this riding. If you are not Canadian, you should not be editing this article, since you are unaware of what is happening here. Also, the election for 2011 has not happened yet! --Skol fir (talk) 16:29, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

I am sorry, but I need to apologize for one change I made. First of all, I see that you are from Québec, so you are well-informed. Secondly, I just saw an article that proves that Forbes is indeed the Liberal candidate. From the Liberal Website, it looked for awhile like it was Simon Bérubé. The Liberal Website now does not even show the Manicouagan district in their list. It's as if it does not exist for them. We'll see what develops here. --Skol fir (talk) 19:31, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Opinion polling in the Canadian federal election, 2011[edit]

Question about the copyright eligibility of a movie prop[edit]

Greetings. I've been impressed with your knowledge of copyright issues, and I was hoping you might have some insight about this question. Obviously a sculpture in a museum is eligible for copyright protection in the U.S., and obviously the design of a trash can is not. There's a lot of gray area in between. I know that copyright eligibility can be murky territory due to the lack of case law. But do you have any insight into this particular situation? (And is this case, described here, relevant?) All the best, – Quadell (talk) 14:57, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Poll reference[edit]

Hi, I'm not opposed to this modification, as I think the article should not give importance to polls sponsored by the candidates (as opposed to independent polls) but, for information, a reference about the removed sentence is available on this website. -- Asclepias (talk) 23:45, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

If it's in that source then use that source, your previous citatation to Paul Dewar's website did not mention that information. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk)
It was not my citation. Me, I wouldn't even mention in that article a poll sponsored by a candidate, just like I wouldn't mention a poll sponsored by a political party in an article about a general election. However, because of your edit comment, I thought perhaps you wanted to use that information or you wanted to know it. If you don't have a use for it and didn't need it, then no problem. -- Asclepias (talk) 05:53, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Non-U.S. images[edit]

Ford Museum copyright[edit]

hello!

I contacted Jim about the copyright mess (I saw him on several discussion pages about copyright and presidential portraits, plus he has some background into the NARA project, etc) and here is his excerpted answer:

"During Ford's time in office, the copyright rules required that there had to be notice -- usually words like "(c) 1975 James L. Woodward" or "Copyright 1975 James L. Woodward" -- on the work. Many sculptures and paintings do not have notice and therefore are PD. We use the tag {{PD-US-no notice}} on those. That rule changed in 1978 to allow registration or notice and then again 1989 to require neither. See File:PD-US table.svg for a summary."

I can definitely live with this for now. I'm still curious about what the NARA lawyers say. Is this acceptable to you? Happy Holidays! Bdcousineau (talk) 01:07, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Way to explain stuff so clearly to Bdcousineau at WP:Media copyright questions!! Elvey (talk) 22:51, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Err ... reasonable doubt?[edit]

Well, I spoke a bit too soon. I'm concerned about your description of the precautionary principle policy, which is here. I think your use of the term "beyond a reasonable doubt" misdescribes the policy. It's not that strict. I and many editors say files should NOT be deleted for licensing reasons if "to the best of our knowledge" they are free. And surely, files should NOT be deleted for licensing reasons if based upon a preponderance of the evidence they are free. Do you think if there is little doubt, there is still significant doubt? I would be happy if you changed/clarified what you posted at WP:Media copyright questions.--Elvey (talk) 01:02, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Election Templates[edit]

Hi Asclepias. Sorry if I sound terse but I'm forced to work in ten-minute bursts (at best) today; no offense felt or intended.

I notice you've been sourcing the candidates confirmed by Elections Canada. I understand that it would be normal practice to do so, but I've added the © marker to represent such candidates and noted on the proper page that such candidates are not being sourced simply because of the clutter it would cause. [Oh great, in my head this sounds like the cover sheet scene from Office Space.]

Just a heads up.

And thanks for all the great work herding Rhinos. Now if the Marxist-Leninists would just have a candidate page instead of popping up like somebody turned on the sprinkler system at a hotel hosting a Mogwai convention... G. Timothy Walton (talk) 16:22, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Laval--Les Îles[edit]

Thanks for the correction. I couldn't find anything recent when I looked, so assumed it was one of the old Hill Times entries that have so often proven incorrect. I'll restore it this morning and source to the second link you cited. G. Timothy Walton (talk) 11:39, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Deleting FD column from election templates[edit]

Shouldn't we wait until the final list of confirmed candidates is released before doing this? The last few SD candidates making the confirmed list were not on the website nor did they seem to get any media coverage.

There's even a slim chance some of their incumbents could be elected, and they are a sitting party. It's not like they're Libertarians. G. Timothy Walton (talk) 15:04, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Regarding Mary Barr photo[edit]

Photo

If the licensing needs to be changed, that's fine. Barr's daughter, Molly, already confirmed with me that all three photos are in the public domain because they were works of an official US government organization during the line of work. Namely, the US Forest Service. The photos were then exhibited at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and later by the San Diego Air and Space Museum, all while being public domain. Can you change the license to reflect this? SilverserenC 10:15, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

I can't, because personally I don't have direct knowledge of evidence that would allow me to take responsibility for making that statement. If you trust that you possess evidence solid enough to make the statement yourself and you're willing to take the responsibility for it, the template would be PD-USGov-USDA-FS. -- Asclepias (talk) 13:31, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Okay, done. Thanks. Does it look okay? SilverserenC 18:44, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Almost. ;) 1. Templates about copyright status are usually not supposed to be substituded, but transcluded. For example: {{PD-USGov-USDA-FS}}. 2. It's not necessary to duplicate in the permission field what's in the description field or in the status template. 3. Finding and providing references to the photos from a USFS collection or publication would be ideal. If direct references can't be found, then quoting the person who is the source on which you base the statement may be better than nothing, although it's hearsay. -- Asclepias (talk) 19:54, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
I changed it to a transclusion. And I do remember seeing it in an official publication somewhere. Though the issue was that, while being the same photo, it was in black and white for some reason. SilverserenC 19:59, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Copyright in Spain[edit]

Thank you for the detailed answer! It's all so complicated it's amazing that anybody gets it right. Your point about my sources is well-taken. As you probably noticed, my (recent) tendency has been to give more detailed links if the source was unusual (and maybe short-lived), whereas standard image sites, like ArtNet, are simply named. Unfortunately, I've uploaded too many images to go back over them all. I'll simply have to wait to see if any of them are challenged, then respond. I doubt that many will turn out to be copyright violations (the vast majority are over 100 years). Of course, I thought the ones from Spain were OK, too. Again, thank you! WQUlrich (talk) 20:24, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

PS, I've been in contact with a Commons administrator named "Cookie". I gave her a list of six categories containing non-PD files (mine and other user's). She hasn't indicated if she plans to delete them. WQUlrich (talk) 20:35, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

File:Peter Ewart CP poster Big Game.jpg[edit]

Hi Asclepias. I saw you provided the licensing, etc. for File:Peter Ewart CP poster Big Game.jpg. Perhaps you wouldn't commenting at c:User talk:JoolsA#File:Peter Ewart Big Game poster for CPR.jpg? If the licensing you added to the Wikipedia files is Commons-acceptable, then the Commons' file should be eligible for undeletion and the Wikipedia version could then be deleted, right? -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:11, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
