Ted Baillieu photo[edit]

Hi Befekir, I fixed up the tags and sizing on the photo of Ted Baillieu that you added to the article. I see from your Request for Permissions that you're from the Premier's media office? If so, it might be a good idea to send an email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org from your official government email address confirming that the photo is indeed released under the CC-BY-SA licence with the permission of the copyright holder. See here for more info on confirming permission and licensing with OTRS. Also, if you can add a bit more information to Wikimedia Commons about the image, that would be very helpful. Thanks for uploading the image, it's great when politicians and their offices release photos for use on Wikipedia and other sites. --Canley (talk) 06:02, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Um, careful what you do with the article there... I've reverted your edit as it broke all the reference tags and some of the standard layout and style. --Canley (talk) 06:21, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

The image used has been removed as it appears to be a WP:COPYVIO. If you have permission to use it then you're aware of the procedures per above. Please explain? Timeshift (talk) 05:17, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Timeshift This photo was taken by the Office of the Premier and I have indicated that the Office has given permission for the photo to be used. I have also sent an email to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org from my official government email account confirming the photo was released under the CC-BY-SA licence with the permission of the copyright holder.

That email was sent on 28 February and I haven't been given a response yet.

Please let me know what we can do to comply so as to have the Premier's photo changed. Thank you so much for your assistance.

You will just have to wait I guess. Or an admin that comes across this page can answer it. I have never done one so I dont know how long it takes. Note however that the old image will be moved to the article body rather than removed. Timeshift (talk) 02:35, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
I once submitted a permission ticket to OTRS for an image which I had photographed but I no longer had the original print and the only copy I could find was a scan from a magazine on a geocities website. I think it only took a day or two—I don't think I got any direct confirmation, a Commons admin just added the OTRS ticket number to the Talk page of the image. --Canley (talk) 10:10, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
I just had a look at the OTRS page on Commons, apparently the waiting period is currently 27 days due to the small number of OTRS volunteers. --Canley (talk) 10:11, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

There is always the much quicker way. Look at what the Greens do. They have their photos on their official website, and down the bottom it has "This website is license under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 Australia License". Info on this license can be found here. Timeshift (talk) 05:56, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Cut it out[edit]

You have been told by a number of editors not to reintroduce an image which is a clear copyright violation. Please consider this your final warning. Also, as you have a direct conflict of interest you should refrain from editing the article. Flat Out let's discuss it 01:35, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Flat Out, read the part about images. Timeshift (talk) 02:38, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
Timeshift, thanks I have read it and I have also explained the situation to the editor on my talk page. Cheers Flat Out let's discuss it 22:55, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
