File permission problem with File:Southern Chinese Lion Portrait (Cutout).jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Southern Chinese Lion Portrait (Cutout).jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 20:30, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Problem solved. The image uses OTRS ticket number 2013022110010297. I'll be careful about adding copyrights next time. Many thanks to Stephen Philbrick for his help! Brandon Pow (talk) 16:50, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Stub tags[edit]

Please take care not to add {{stub}} to an article like Soviet (council) which already has a specific stub tag. It just wastes other editors' time. Thanks. PamD 12:21, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

All right... I still can't quite figure out how I ever got involved with that page. Brandon Pow (talk) 16:50, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Seri Lintang Volume 31 (2012) Cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Seri Lintang Volume 31 (2012) Cover.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:52, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
