Hi Kylie, You commented on something re: copyright. I had an image deleted previously and wanted to know if you have any suggestions to have it released it under a suitable 'free' licence. A sort of quick and dirty how to have this uploaded without being deleted.
Does the owner of the work - in this case the publisher have to do or can I proxy with the appropriate permission.
- Hi Obltkg4, copyright on Wikipedia is a difficult/complex subject - and it's even more strictly applied over on commons were the image was remove from. Firstly I'd recommend reading the notice on your commons talk page HERE where you'll find some links, and the editor who removed the image and could maybe help. Unfortunately their is no "quick and dirty" way for images that have been already published not under a 'free' licence. To publish on commons the copyright owner has to give permission because although you know that you have permission to anyone else your an unknown person just claiming that on the internet. It actually looks like they may have made it easier than the old method, if you look at Commons:OTRS in the Declaration of consent for all enquiries section there is a link to a Wikimedia OTRS release generator - I've not used but hopefully it is easy enough although if they don't want to upload the image with the release then they'll need to know the file name File:AugustEnigma.jpg. Otherwise people should release publicity images on there own websites with a CC-BY/CC-BY-SA etc licence clearly marked (see Commons:Licensing). Hope that helps.

The Nairobi Hospital article
Thank you for undoing the modification I tried to The Nairobi Hospital. I could not add an image because I have not reached the minimum edits to be enabled to upload media! Would you please add the logo as I tried?
Just wanted to let you know that there is already a Page for the Movie Love Day https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_Day_-_Pyaar_Ka_Din Love Day - Pyaar Ka Din is the full name of the Movie. So could you please help delete the Page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_Day_(Film) Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anamika S Jain (talk • contribs) 06:32, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
- Hi Anamika S Jain, thanks fro pointing that out. I have redirected Love Day (Film) to Love Day - Pyaar Ka Din. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 17:41, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I agree, it is odd, but it is what it is... Not the only recent song title where the composer has overlaid a second title/message... Two years ago, the same corps did Andy Akiho's "to wALk Or ruN in wEst harlem" which a couple other corps did this year... Odd, but I guess it works for the composers...

New Zealand Scout Jamboree
Im just going to let you know that I Will Change Back the Edits For the NZ Scout Jamboree Page as I currently Work For them As Part of Their Media And marketing team there is a plan in place to create 19th and 20th jamboree pages in conjunction with this main page to keep this information relevant to our event
- Hi Crazycart00n thanks for the heads-up, but I'm just one of many editors that would have picked up the same concern as I see Velella already has. As you state you work for them there are a number of polices that you must be aware of: Firstly is Wikipedia:Conflict of interest which strongly discourages these types of edit. Next would be to point out Wikipedia is an encyclopaedia and not a platform for promotion see Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not especially WP:PROMOTION. Lastly yo can just remove information with intent to create new pages sometime later. If an editor wanted to do this they should either prepare all the pages in there own user area or in draft, or a more normal approach is just to add to a page and move out sections to there own pages if and when they get big enough to stand alone. In this case I don't see enough information for separate pages. I would suggest asking for assistance at the Wikipedia:Teahouse, or WikiProject New Zealand or WikiProject Scouting. I've done a quick tidy as well. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:50, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the information and the tidy i had no intention on using it as promotion for our event even. At the time it did not show what nz jamboree was about i have just found it really hard to find information on nz jamborees even for editing this. i have asked nz jamboree officials to hopefully receive some more history on previous ones. It was misunderstood that wikipedia could be edited by others and i was asked to have look into this, We work on volunteer basis i did not understand that This could be Wikipedia:Conflict of interest how ever as im relatively new to editing on Wikipedia and seem to have missed Somethings so again thank you for pointing me in the right direction Crazycart00n (talk) 22:33, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
- Hi Crazycart00n, no problem at all - we don't expect people to know all the rules (I still don't know many and I've been doing this for years) and one important one is Wikipedia:Assume good faith. Also most cases of Conflict of interest are well meaning, and most 'promotional' content is done with the best of intentions, and it can often be a fine line between 'encyclopedic' and 'promotional'. So you didn't misunderstand that "wikipedia could be edited by others", that's correct in fact all content is just added by volunteers not by any paid staff. All the best KylieTastic (talk) 15:02, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
USS COLORADO (SSN 788) Ship's Crest (a.k.a badge)
Not sure where you came up with the ship's crest you posted around 15 June 2016 to subj page. It differs from the crest picked as the winner by ship's C.O. in announced contest. See ship's commissioning page on Facebook for further info and actual crest.
- Hi, it wasn't me I was just fixing the image Ootervon3 attempted to add with this edit - and they uploaded the image to commons here but gave no information to were it came from. I was just assuming good faith that it was the correct one. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:07, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
You revered my edit, I am assuming because the name of the TV Movie has the word "Dick" in it. Am I supposed to censor that word? It is also directly cited in one of the references on the page. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4295500 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Susanev (talk • contribs) 16:04, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
- Hi Susanev, no we don't censor on Wikipedia - however with a reference or any edit summary it just looked like the sort of vandalism we get a lot of. We can't check every dubious looking entry (or the vandals would win due to volume) so its the responsibility of editors to add sources and explain actions via edit summaries. So apologies for the mistake, I've added back with a reference and please add edit summaries especially if the edit is non obvious or could look dubious to others. All the best and happy editing, KylieTastic (talk) 16:10, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
Deleted image on Woods Hole Research Center page
Thanks for removing the link to the image that had already been deleted.
But I was wondering how people upload logos to Wikipedia. Logos are obviously copyrighted (which I assume is why mine was deleted) but I see plenty of logos on Wikipedia pages.
- Hi LeadvilleDave, you can upload logo under fair use locally to Wikipedia but not to Wikimedia Commons. Commons only hosts 'free' media but on English Wikipedia (and I believe similarly on other languages) allow some copyrighted images under fair use. Start here and use the options for "This is a copyrighted, non-free work, but I believe it is Fair Use." and "This is a logo of an organization, company, brand, etc." make sure you five the source, the article it will be used on (fair use images can only be used in one place), and for why the use will be minimal something like "Only used in infobox to inform users on subject". Hope that helps KylieTastic (talk) 20:34, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
Commons Un-delete Request File:Yura Min and partner, Alex Gamelin
- Hi HyeSK, I assume your talking about File:Hasmik Karapetyan.jpg. I don;t have permissions to see deleted images so I can only go by the discussion commons:Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Hasmik_Karapetyan.jpg which suggests you just took an image from the internet and claimed it was you own work. As per the answer to your question on commons here if you do own the image copyright you need to show that you do. Or you need to find an image with suitable licensing as per commons:Commons:Licensing. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 14:19, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
