David Jones, regarding Yuri.jpg and Yuri.gif[edit]

I'll need some assistance on how I attach copyright information to the images... {{Fairusein|article}} David Lewis Jones

Wow![edit]

Hey - quick work dabbing The Dismissal (television series)! I was about to do it myself and couldn't work out how come those articles supposedly linked to The Dismissal but were already linked to The Dismissal (television series) when I tried editing them... Thanks! Regards, CLW 08:45, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Yeah I noticed the merge had occured so just changed the linking to pages. Then I realised the merge had just happened minutes before, so I hope I wasn't loking you out when you were trying to update the linking-to pages! Asa01 08:47, 30 January 2006 (UTC)


List of Photographers[edit]

I see that you have removed all of the red-linked entries from this list. Is there some guideline that I have missed prohibiting this? I don't find any discussion of same on the page and I have some question on the wholesale removal of same. I agree that the list had gotten somewhat cluttered with names that I'm not familiar with, but at the same time there were many that needed to have articles written and that should be included. This was a good way to have attention brought to those. Doc 20:33, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply...I do agree that there are many names that shouldn't be there. You are correct, and thanks for pointing it out, I should create a stub at least on the one or two I keep planning to work on and haven't gotten around to. Doc 17:55, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

In a similar vein... I'm glad you've removed some obvious vanity inclusions on the List of photographers, but please be careful about removing other listings. Photographic studio doesn't mean what you think it means - the term refers to collective creators of images, not (only) to the space where photographs are made, etc. Names such as Pun Lun photographic studio, Stillfried & Andersen, etc. refer to collective photographers - e.g. even though Stillfried made photographs on his own, his studio made many more under the name "Stillfried & Andersen". Thanks. Pinkville 14:26, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

simple request[edit]

in regards to Image:HazelCarter.jpe and future image deletions, a simple inquiry made to the person who uploaded the image can be helpful and useful. rather than delete the image, ask the person who uploaded it if they can provide information on its copyright status. thanks, Kingturtle 22:33, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

And I'll make the same request regarding image deletion that Kingturtle just made. I had an image that OrphanBot detected and complained about, but right after getting the notice I went to check on the image to find it had been already deleted before I could even go and see what was wrong with it.

Reply[edit]

Do you have the copyright to that image, what happened? Why remove it, well then, no problem, put another photo which is not copyrighted or let me know how, i have many! -The Rocky 50

Thanks for your message. Unfortunately I have no way of knowing which image you are referring to. If you can let me know, I'll try to answer your query. Thanks, CLW 21:10, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading the following images: Image:Shapka.jpg, Image:Newgostivar.jpg, Image:Tetovo.jpg, Image:Siroksokak2.jpg,Image:Siroksokak.jpg . I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. CLW 13:27, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for reminding me. These pictures are not mine, they were taken from a web sites, but actually I removed the pictures from the articles I put before, so feel free to delete it. Bitola 13:57, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
OK - I'll leave the images until they've had their seven day period, after which I or another administrator will delete them. Regards, CLW 14:03, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

7-11's in HK[edit]

Actually the statement about 7-11's in HK is rather accurate. In most urban areas, you can't make it through one city block without seeing one on either side of the street. --Madchester 15:05, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

OK, cool; I'll try to reword that bit for clarity. From experience, I found that you were never a 5 minute walk away from a 7-11 in HK. They weren't on every intersection, but they're amazingly densely concentrated in the urban centres. --Madchester 15:16, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Six Million Dollar Man[edit]

RE: Image:Sixmilliondollar4.jpg

I'd hate to see this image go. Page gives information about being part of a publicity package. What should I do to make a case for it? Do we need a statement from the company? I hate to take up your time, but if I can learn how to do this, I'll be able to give you photo-sleuths a hand in the future. I'm going to do some looking, but let me know if I'm missing something and wasting my time. Thanks. --DanielCD 21:08, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Could you please notify me before deleting my images in the future? Hyacinth 12:03, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

I thank you for your polite response.
I am currently in the process of tagging many of the images I have created as fair use. I use {{fairusein|ARTICLE}} and provide a rationale.
This is my best understanding of how they should be tagged. I am concerned that if I am wrong and don't have computer access for a week all these images will be deleted (and as I don't have a computer, I don't have backup copies of my images, as we saw with Peggy Sue).
My other two concerns are first that I have not replaced the GFDL tag with a Non-free fair use in tag, since I am not sure that the Non-free fair use in tag is correct (and am thus unwilling to assert that it is fair use, then find out I was wrong and my images where deleted anyways), but added a "if that is not appropriate" or "if not" and then the Non-free fair use in tag. If I gain clarity or confidence on this (if I feel I have "correctly" tagged my images and protected them from deletion) I would gladly remove all the GFDL tags.
Secondly, does fair use, or the Non-free fair use in tag, mean or imply that the image may only be used in one article? For images which I am tagging fair use that are used in more than one article I have been providing rationales for use in all articles. Is this appropriate? If it is not, what is the appropriate tag or claim?
Hyacinth 12:39, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your help. You're actually the first person to offer any assistance, and the first to give any, with images.
I wouldn't be so jealous. I fried my last computer (smoke, weird liquids, tech guy on the phone yelling at me, and since it was my fault no warranty coverage) and can't afford a new or used one. I get frustrated reading books and knowing I have limited time to add information gained (temporarily) to (the more permanent) Wikipedia. I also use the computer to write and record and download and listen to music, and am missing that badly. I currenlty have a borrowed stereo with crap for speakers. No TV, no computer. I wonder now what I did before I had a computer.
The computer access I do have is at work. It is a signifigant amount of time, since I work graveyards, but frustrating (and potentially risky).
Thanks again. Hyacinth 12:55, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Fair use images[edit]

What are fair user images? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Radaar (talkcontribs)

SD.net Image[edit]

You have deleted an image which I have permission from the owner to post. I asked a friend to upload it because I did not know how to upload it myself. I wasn't even warned prior to your removing the link from my page that it was to be deleted. I would appreciate it if you would bring the picture back and show me how to properly label it to prevent this from happening in the future. Alyeska 17:23, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

The image isn't fair use. I have permission from the creator of the image. That should more then suffice. And now that its been deleted, I have no way of resurrecting the image. You really should send a message to the person who is primarily linking the image before deleting it. The image in question was in an article that got voted for deletion. When in the article itself, it was perfectly legitmate, but now that I am protecting the page in my user space, suddenly the image is bad and I can't have it? Give me a break. You've deleted an image which I can not replace at this moment. Not a very nice thing to do. And I see you've been deleting images without dropping messages of warning to people in the past. Please consider messaging people in the future. It would avoid trouble like this. Alyeska 17:39, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

So someone takes the time and effort to upload an image, and its merely a clerical issue, and rather then inform the person of the error you just go about deleting the image without bothering to inform them and instead create tension and inflame members. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. People get irritated when their photos get deleted. I myself am quite irritated. More so that you actualy edited out the link in my article without first getting permission. Broken link or not, you don't edit it out just because you removed the photo. Instead of solving the problem, you erase it and in the process create a new one and cause me trouble in the process. Alyeska 17:50, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

You've not intentionaly done anything wrong, but you have done things which have caused problems. Following policy blindly without consideration to the reactions of those it affects is not a very good way of going about doing business. The rules might not require you to inform people, but that doesn't mean you are prohibited. You would get more cooperation from people if you worked to fix the problem with the photo rather then just delete it. Alyeska 18:00, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Ok, it looks like you could be right. I'm kinda busy today, so it'll be about two days for me to study this and remake my userpage. Thanks. SkeenaR 21:37, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Is this photo real?[edit]

I talked to you sometime past about another picture. I'm not sure this one is real: Image:Iraqis tortured wp-e.jpg. I just thought I'd point it out, as you are a picture sleuth, and I'd hate Wikipedia to become the new Enquirer. It may be real, but I can hardly see the military allowing such a blatant picture to be released. It just looks fishy to me. If you're not concerned, then just ignore this message and have a great day! --DanielCD 23:28, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Linking pages[edit]

Hello, long time no speak, hope you're well.

So, I've been contributing away on various things, my new project has been Latvian artists after a trip to Latvia. Have written several biogs and one on the National Art Museum, hoping to ultimately expand them all and put a link on the Latvia page. However for now I was wondering how to create redirects - the spelling of many of the artists' names have various symbols above the letters which will mean that many typing in the name in the search box will get the spelling correct (in English) but not find the article.

All the best,

Graham

Thanks[edit]

Your recent deletion of As Fast As[edit]

Hi. You recently deleted the article As Fast As. I was wondering what your justification was for deleting the article. I was wondering because:

  • As Fast As released 3 albums, 2 under the name Rocktopus
  • They had a notable radio hit
  • They have a profile on Allmusic, proving that they are a notable band
  • As Fast As is the current name for the band, their former name was Rocktopus.
  • They are signed to a notable label, Octone Records, the label of other notable bands, such as Maroon 5 and Flyleaf.
  • The band is composed of former members of Rustic Overtones, another notable band from Maine.

If you are not convinced to completely revive the article, please at least consider putting it up for debate at WP:AFD. Thank you, Shardsofmetal [ Talk | Contribs ] 05:53, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

(None of which was in the article. CLW 07:47, 23 February 2006 (UTC))

Custom Tech Spec resourcing[edit]

I noticed you changed the source for several of the custom tech specs I made. I think you are in error. For instance the one for Rhinox, I called it a Promo Photo, because it's a promo photo of the Rhinox resin statue. I think took a paint program and painted the tech spec around it. I made the tech spec, and I don't hold any copyright on them, but the original photo is a promotional photo of a statue of Rhinox. Also, some of my tech specs start out as TV screenshots or as panels in comic books. I do the same thing to them in a paint program, but still call them a TV screenshot or comic book panel. I think this is correct.

Rolling Thunder[edit]

Hello CLW, know you're on a break but for when you return, I've done an article on the film Rolling Thunder. Submitted a photo, would you be able to add it to the page?

Serious Sam Enemy biographies[edit]

The images that were on that page, based on the few I looked at were tagged {{game-screenshot}}, which is a claim to fair use. The source is implied as being a screenshot from the said game, so the no source tag isn't really needed. I am re-adding them to the article, although I think some have already been deleted. Is there some reason to think that the the source is something other than the game? If you have any questions let me know. - cohesiontalk 18:41, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

John Osborne[edit]

Hello there, hope you had a good break (presuming you read this upon your return). So, I've put some work into the John Osborne article and was wondering how to add a picture of him - is it ok to add covers of books? What about Getty Images? How best to obtain a photo which is ok to use?

Drive for Swedish quality articles[edit]

Hello. This is in regards to the upcoming Wikipedia improvements Wikipedia:Pushing to 1.0 and Wikipedia:Stable versions, which have the intentions to provide stable versions of articles suitable for prints or publishing.

I've noticed you have written several articles about Swedish matters. If you feel some of these are decent enough to deserve recognition, you are encouraged to nominate them at Wikipedia:Swedish Wikipedians' notice board/Swedish quality articles. In the end, our articles should be comparable to what is expected from the Encyclopedia Britannica. If it currently isn't, but you feel you have spent a considerable amount of time on it, you are still encouraged to nominate it, so that your work will be recognized and others can continue to improve on it. Don't be shy! :-)

  2. I've been trying to upload an image, but everytime I click upload I get "." is not a reccommend file type. Anyway to resolve this?

    2. It's a Nintendo screenshot, but I found on a website, does that make it more complicated?

Shin Wen-Bing[edit]

Hi Nicholas. I want to try to clean up the above article. According to the edit history, you started the article, but I'm a bit puzzled as the original text certainly doesn't seem to have been written by an English native speaker. Did you actually write this or has someone been creating articles using your account? Regards, CLW 12:15, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

It was split off from some other article, created by another person. They were a student at STUT, who was told by a teacher to litter our site with dozens of articles about their institution, some of them copyvios from the institution's website. This may be a copyvio, actually. -- Zanimum 13:40, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

in the future, please check carefully before deleting an image[edit]

You deleted Image:NDP 2005 F-16s.jpg when the uploader summary clearly stated "I took this from the Padang". Now, the tagger was in the wrong, and this was months ago, but I would like to clarify that there should be more caution in the future and to check the circumstances of the tag. It would not have been difficult as it was on the same page.

Also, when you messaged User:Tdxiang about the copyright problem, he stated on the talk page that he meant it to be in the GFDL, but apparently you didn't check back. Can I recommend you at least put {{GFDL-presumed}} in the future? The idea is to prevent lawsuits, not as a punitive measure. Elle vécut heureuse à jamais (Be eudaimonic!) 18:22, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. I must say that I disagree with your comments. "I took this from the Padang" doesn't make the source clear - what's the Padang? A website? A photo archive? As far as I'm concerned, this isn't sufficient sourcing, and there were no copyright details provided. And when deleting images, the deleter can't be expected to go to the user's talk page, and check every message in the archives to see if the user has added a one-liner to a message relating to a different image entirely. I also take offence at you calling me "careless" at Tdxiang's talk page, when all I've done is to correctly delete a speedyable image with no source and no copyright status. You say the tagger was wrong (I disagree - I think the tagger was correct) and yet you're leaving a message to criticise me but not the tagger. I don't understand. You say I messaged the uploader about the copyright tag, but didn't check back - do you seriously think that everytime an editor tags an image and notifies the uploader s/he should be checking that user's page? I leave hundreds of these messages, so that would be absolute madness. Also, I can't see where I've messaged that uploader (after all, it wasn't me who tagged the image), so again I don't understand. Regards, CLW 19:51, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Re: the Padang[edit]

Erm, the Padang is a national landmark, ie. the Padang. Since you deleted a photograph representing the national holiday of Singapore, to "take something from the Padang", especially if it was a high-resolution image. If I said "I took this from the Statue of Liberty", "I took this from the Great Wall", "I took this from St. Peters' Basilica"... The English usage in this case implies that the Padang was a venue, especially concerning the fact that it was a national parade, thus to take a photograph from the Padang would imply that the photographer, our dear uploader, was in the Padang. Generally if it was taken from a website a url would be provided. We should generally avoid copyright paranoia. The image was high-resolution, so this should have hinted at the fact that it was a genuine user-created image, and that it was high likely taken from the user's digital camera. Often, copyvios taken from google images happen to be low-resolution. The source was clearly provided. The word "take" means to take a photograph, so I thought it was reasonably obvious. I am not griping about not checking the talk page - but because someone had linked to it already and he had clarified it was GFDL, the tagger didn't check back. I also thought you were the one that had posted to his talk page. Having deleted 400 images myself, I usually take precuations and investigate the images I delete; and I just feel slightly frustrated, so do pardon me. I would have recommended a GFDL-presumed in this case, it would have been the Wikiquette thing to do. Elle vécut heureuse à jamais (Be eudaimonic!) 20:35, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

I am significantly frustrated because yet another terrific image had been deleted due to carelessness. It is nothing personal in particular, but if you see template talk:no source, you will find plenty of gripes of people tagging things as "no source" when the source could be obtained easily by just looking around (where it was linked, what the summary was)...for example, if I didn't know what the Padang was, I would have googled it. There is Padang, Singapore, right as one of the top five hits. When erring on the side of caution, it is better to err on the side of least destructiveness - images can't be undeleted. If it was a copyvio all we would have is a DMCA take down notice at the worst - we can afford to wait, especially from an active user like Tdxiang. I would think if the tagger bothers to leave a message, then the page should be watched and/or check for a response. Since there are two steps to have an image deleted - tag + deletion, then two people need to make an error. However, "speedy delete" does not mean "glance at the image description page for 5 seconds"; so I am simply trying to broadcast my gripe that if administrators (of which I am one) were a bit more cautious, the results would be overly more tolerable. This is the fifth time this has affected me, so I am a bit frustrated. Elle vécut heureuse à jamais (Be eudaimonic!) 21:01, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Offtopic.com[edit]

I just wanted to say thanks for the work you've been doing with Offtopic.com and cleaning it up and defending it at the same time.Robhakari 15:35, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Fair use images[edit]

Copied from my talk.

I notice that you're using fair use images on User:FloNight/DanielCD. However, please note that fair use of copyrighted images cannot be claimed outside mainspace articles - please could you therefore remove these? Thanks, CLW 10:16, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

You must be psychic. I was planning on cleaning up that user space today. Guilty as charged re: fair use image. That is our stress buster space. It has gotten a bit clustered with all kinds of nonsense. FloNight talk 10:39, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
