Info[edit]

Hi. I noticed your edit in Tetrachromacy‎. There's no problem with anonymous edits, so, no reason to explain. But also, for general security, you don't want your IP connected with your user name. In fact, it would be good if you deleted this message after reading. Just an FYI. Regards, Piano non troppo (talk) 02:42, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Al Bundy's God's Shoes.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Al Bundy's God's Shoes.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Acather96 (talk) 07:48, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Vibram FiveFinger Manual Copyright.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Vibram FiveFinger Manual Copyright.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.

Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 05:24, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

The image File:Vibram FiveFinger Manual Copyright.jpg is currently being used as a copyright evidence of the Wikipedia page File:Vibram FiveFingers CARE AND CLEANING.jpg, which can be considered as a Wikipedia graphic article, or at least as a part of it since it is included in the Wikipedia article FiveFingers.
Both pictures come from the same document and it is unlikely to find free images of the same document to replace them. Heathmoor (talk) 15:35, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Torà - Plaça del Vall - Holy Friday Market 1983.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Torà - Plaça del Vall - Holy Friday Market 1983.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use 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 you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 23:43, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Tora Coat of Arms 1.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Tora Coat of Arms 1.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the final warning you will receive regarding your disruptive edits.
The next time you use Wikipedia for advertising, as you did with FiveFingers, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. SchuminWeb (Talk) 01:34, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Stop x nuvola.svg
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for persistent copyright infringement. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|Your reason here}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Request reason:

Your reason here

Decline reason:

You have a large number of inappropriate uploads. That you do not understand why they are inappropriate is the issue. The problem is that you do not understand the nuances of Wikipedia's Image Use Policy. That's fine, but you have been warned about a dozen times above about this problem, and yet continued to upload images without regard for these numerous warnings. I have reviewed every one of your image uploads, and nearly all of them are inappropriate for use at Wikipedia. If you wish to be unblocked, your going to have to pledge to stop uploading images, since you obviously do not understand the image policy. Jayron32 03:51, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

The administrator that has blocked my account is misusing his entrustment for blocking other editors. It first gave a warning notice to go on to block me by persistent copyright infringement before I had edited anything else, and without giving a chance to reply to its warning. Besides, there are other other points to support this administrator's incorrect behavior:

This administrator has been deleting my editions with hardly any comment in the edit summary line, just limiting to say it was either advertising or I had to prove it was not. In any case, there are 10 criteria to meet on fair-use of promotional content established in Wikipedia that seems this administrator ignores or purposely misinterprets at his or her convenience:

  1. No free equivalent. Non-free content is used only where no free equivalent is available, or could be created, that would serve the same encyclopedic purpose. Where possible, non-free content is transformed into free material instead of using a fair-use defense, or replaced with a freer alternative if one of acceptable quality is available; "acceptable quality" means a quality sufficient to serve the encyclopedic purpose. (As a quick test, before adding non-free content requiring a rationale, ask yourself: "Can this non-free content be replaced by a free version that has the same effect?" and "Could the subject be adequately conveyed by text without using the non-free content at all?" If the answer to either is yes, the non-free content probably does not meet this criterion.)
  2. Respect for commercial opportunities. Non-free content is not used in a manner that is likely to replace the original market role of the original copyrighted media.
  3. Minimal usage. Multiple items of non-free content are not used if one item can convey equivalent significant information.
    Minimal extent of use. An entire work is not used if a portion will suffice. Low- rather than high-resolution/fidelity/bit rate is used (especially where the original could be used for deliberate copyright infringement). This rule also applies to the copy in the File: namespace.
  4. Previous publication. Non-free content must have been published or publicly displayed outside Wikipedia.
  5. Content. Non-free content meets general Wikipedia content standards and is encyclopedic.
  6. Media-specific policy. The material meets Wikipedia's media-specific policy. For example, images must meet Wikipedia:Image use policy.
  7. One-article minimum. Non-free content is used in at least one article.
  8. Contextual significance. Non-free content is used only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding.
  9. Restrictions on location. Non-free content is allowed only in articles (not disambiguation pages), and only in article namespace, subject to exemptions. (To prevent an image category from displaying thumbnails, add to it; images are linked, not inlined, from talk pages when they are a topic of discussion.)
  10. Image description page. The image or media description page contains the following:
    Identification of the source of the material, supplemented, where possible, with information about the artist, publisher and copyright holder; this is to help determine the material's potential market value. See: Wikipedia:Citing sources#When uploading an image.
    A copyright tag that indicates which Wikipedia policy provision is claimed to permit the use. For a list of image copyright tags, see Wikipedia:Image copyright tags/Non-free content.
    The name of each article (a link to each article is also recommended) in which fair use is claimed for the item, and a separate, specific fair-use rationale for each use of the item, as explained at Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline. The rationale is presented in clear, plain language and is relevant to each use.

I claim that the content I uploaded clearly met all these 10 criteria when incorporated to the article FiveFingers. In contrast, this administrator never argued a single one of these 10 criteria against to support his or her deletions. This administrator never included a rationale in the discussion page of the article I had previously edited to support his or her deletions. When an administrator is editing an article he or she is not yet freed from commenting and justifying his or her changes as any other editor is expected to do.

The last rather unorthodox decision (blocking my account without an additional arguable reason after a previous warning) make me think that this administrator rushed to block my account to prevent me from reporting on his or her misuse of the administrator tools that he or she has been trusted with. Heathmoor (talk) 03:35, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

In short: spamming is against the rules. Your FiveFingers edits and related images were clearly promotional in nature, you were told that they were promotional when they were removed and the images speedy deleted, and the images and text were re-added. SchuminWeb (Talk) 03:54, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
Additionally, the decision to block despite the final warning given earlier was made after the pattern of uploading copyvio images was discovered and verified. I researched on Commons (pretty much Wikimedia's gold standard for what is allowable free content), and found no indications of broad permissions at Commons:Licensing for government-created images in Spain. A pattern of copyright violations as you were found to have been engaged in puts the entire project in jeopardy. You were blocked to prevent further jeopardizing of the project. I make no apologies in having blocked you. If it were only the advertising, you may have been given another chance, as evidenced by the final warning placed on your talk page.
