Request for File:Puttingondog2.jpg and File:Puttingondog4.jpg[edit]

I think File:Puttingondog2.jpg and File:Puttingondog4.jpg shouldn't be deleted. I tried you upload them but they were empty files. Marole3 (talk) 17:07, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello, I noticed an image I had added and that you warned be about was removed. It did take me a long time, but I did get to add a CC note to the original photo in Facebook. The warning was about there not being a clear copyright release with that original image. I wonder if you could take another look and let me know if it is acceptable now to place that image with the article. The photo was the only one on this page: and the image is on Facebook here: - that only shows the photo. The note about CC0 1.0 is on this page, but I'm not sure it will go directly there: Please advise. Thanks! BethJaneToren (talk) 18:34, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

You should ask for a Deletion review, WP:UNDELETE, as I concur with the the CC note on the facebook site. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 22:58, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Warren Hastings trial engraving[edit]

Yes, it certainly is old enough. Please change it to PD-Old and transfer it to Commons (as you will do it a lot faster than I). Fowler&fowler«Talk» 10:28, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

File:Deposit of fibrosis and fatty infiltration.jpg[edit]

Hi, when you nominate files for deletion with F8 as also existing with a different names on commons, can you please update the articles to point to the new name on commons? Otherwise if we just delete the file off Wikipedia, it will cause lost image problems in articles. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 11:43, 30 July 2016 (UTC)


The original album does not credit anyone for creating the image. It is out of print more than half a century and Indra Devi is deceased. I'm not sure what further information can be added or whom I could contact for clarification. Schmausschmaus (talk)

File:DuckDuckGo Logo.svg and File:DuckDuckGo screenshot.png[edit]

Hi, could you review these files as they're going to be transferred to Commons? It seems that license conditions allow this. Thanks in advance! --RezonansowyakaRezy (talk | contribs) 10:17, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Based on available evidence I don't see an immediate issue, Take it to FFD if you aren't sure. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:23, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Both files are moved now. They're available in c:Category:DuckDuckGo. --RezonansowyakaRezy (talk | contribs) 14:18, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
@Sfan00 IMG: Do you know what is the process with files replacement? I mean that these files uploaded locally should be deleted and redirected to the same version on Commons. --RezonansowyakaRezy (talk | contribs) 14:27, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
OK, I found it on WP:F8. Never mind. --RezonansowyakaRezy (talk | contribs) 07:38, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Help me talk to Oluwa2Chainz because what ever i say to him he doesn't reply to my message even when i asked him questions i don't get reply.[edit]

They are laying fuse allegation on me that i am a sock puppetry of choccitymusic1 and the later even make edits similar to that of the already blocked Markzy90 as it was stated.

  • I am a sock puppetry of AmPizzle because i am a big fan of the guy's style of music production and i was told by Nihonjoe to change my user name, which i did but because could not wait for their respond i created this account and Huon declined my request because i had opened a new account without waiting, so i was asked to keep using this account.--Obari2Kay (talk) 11:18, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

File updated[edit]

As you requested, I updated everything about this file, including uploading a larger & better-edited version. Sighhhh--WP was a very different place in 2003! Elf | Talk 16:01, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Good luck with me updating the other photos of mine. Heh, I wish I had more time. I'll add it to my to-do list, after finishing with my dad's estate, my own disability, cleaning out house for downsizing eventually, training the dogs... well, I'd like to. I have an easy-to-see collection of them here--you can see why it's daunting-- so someday maybe. Elf | Talk 16:08, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

I am proposing[edit]

changing the name of an article that you were involved with from Vicken von Post-Börjesson to Vicken von Post Totten. Please see its talk page if you are interested in this process. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 03:25, 9 August 2016 (UTC)


I've updated my image page as requested, but I'm not clear on what is meant by self license. I see no mention of this at Wikipedia:Licensing, nor is there a helpful link in Template:Media by uploader where the phrase is used. (The article Self-licensing is obviously not relevant, either.) If this image's current dual-license, which others updated but I approve, is insufficient, I'll be happy to make any recommended changes. Can you give me specific, templated suggestions? Thank you for your help. ~ Jeff Q (talk)

You should read the documentation for the {{self}} template :) Sfan00 IMG (talk) 08:04, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
Also, I didn't link in the template because there didn't as you point out seem to be a page specfically about how to license your own images. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 08:11, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

File:InGeneron Processing Unit.jpeg[edit]

Hi, I just wrote to the company and received permission to use this and a few other of their images.

How do I go about submitting this proof about this permission? Would forwarding the e-mail communication to permissions-commons AT wikimedia DOT org suffice?

Many thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by V.petcu (talkcontribs) 09:48, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

DaHeala Profile.jpg[edit]

That is exactly how he sent it...personally. To Me. I can send proof as requested as mentioned before. I don't know how else to say it. Can you help me out? I don't want the photo to get deleted, and it was taken by Jason Quenneville himself and sent over personally. Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jiggamafu (talkcontribs) 18:43, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

I still don't understand. This photo has no copyright. The link you have provided does not clearly explain to me what I have to do to prove that this person gave me this photo. I am also using it on HIS profile page. Please take some time to explain to me in plain old english what must be done to avoid this confusion. I understand if this picture was used elsewhere on wiki, but its on his own wiki page, as he has advised me to do so. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jiggamafu (talkcontribs) 18:49, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much! you've been extra helpful. i appreciate it and I'll let Jason Quenneville to email them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jiggamafu (talkcontribs) 18:58, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Jason Quenneville[edit]

You might want to look into some other music industry media, to get some more background. It's highly likley that a producers whose won an award will have had other coverage than online.

File:Arizona lewis prison aerial.jpg[edit]

[I was going to remind you of a related discussion we had recently, but apparently I had this discussion with someone else, and I can't find it.]

I entirely agree with your assertion that a source would be nice. Do you have any reason to think that this image might be a copyright problem, or in other words, if we didn't require sources nowadays, would you have any reason to begin the deletion process if someone uploaded this image today? I'm definitely not attempting to interrupt deletion if you have any evidence of a problem. Nyttend (talk) 01:26, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

The concern was that I was wanting the source to check if it was actually "Federal" govt, which seems likely given the photos subject vs a "state" government, one. The distinction is important because not all "state" Govt media is 'free', something that after November I'd encourage Wikipedians to lobby about. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:07, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

The template didn't display, and I can't find a template by that or a similar name. Just a friendly heads up. :) MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 16:59, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

7IN D&BC 1950.jpg[edit]

I am curious about the discussion... Referal to FFD, because the sourcing is somewhat vauge, and in an informal IRC discussion, there was some comments that certain things didn't look right in the image. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 17:17, 1 August 2016 (UTC) I believe when I originally posted it, I met the requirement by identifying the source as US government or was it US Army but what I am interested in is the comment that "there was some comments that certain things didn't look right in the image". Could you tell me about that, I could not find the comment. Meyerj (talk) 12:57, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

IRC isn't loged, the nature of the concern was that the image was underexposed or washed out in the print. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 00:39, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
  • I received another notice about this image. Am I supposed to have input? I think it should be retained. However that seems selfish of me as I posted it originally. The image was taken (most likely) by the 3d IN Div PAO or the Ft Devens PAO. The US Army photo was discovered in the personal photo album of the organizer of the unit. All of the musical instruments and equipment accompanied the unit to North Korea where, during the December 1950 X US Corps evacuation, they were destroyed when the ports of Wonsan and Hungnam were blown up to deny the enemy use of the port. Only god knows how many of the men in the photo returned to the US as the 7th IN RGT Drum and Bugle Corps was not a TO&E band; they were not bandsmen by MOS.
You should comment in the FFD thread :) , The concern was not about it's copyright status, but it was a technical concern about the image print. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:37, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

"Dead source"[edit]

When you go looking for the source of an image and you find that the URL is dead, please check before filing a deletion debate. Thanks. DS (talk) 23:47, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Another copyvio image from an editor you've interacted with[edit]

I did a Google image search for File:Qazanci bridge.jpg and found this. Unless the editor managed to convince the clouds to copy the earlier photograph, he didn't take this but just copied it. I wouldn't be surprised if he's copying text and translating it from his sources, but I can't check that. Doug Weller talk 15:01, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Re: File:Welsummer Chicken Egg.JPG[edit]

I'm afraid this ceramic egg cup is not at my current residence so I cannot tell you any more information at the moment, sorry. Officially Mr X (talk) 20:06, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Re: File:Statues at Durham Uni Botanic Garden.jpg[edit]

Sorry I do not know this either! I believe they may not be of anyone in particular, more just generic characters which make nice Durham-related garden ornaments or something! I try to add as much info as I can to the descriptions. Officially Mr X (talk) 20:06, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Your FurMe edit causing text overruns[edit]

When you ran the FurMe script on file:Historic Big Boy Restaurant Franchisee Logos.svg you caused a text formatting error. Would you be so kind as to complete your improvement and fix the text overrunning the page? I'm not sure what's causing it.
Thanks and best of luck achieving Master Editor IV! — Box73 (talk) 07:23, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

I'm not seeing an obvious error, Are you editing on mobile?Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:44, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Please be careful[edit]

You tagged File:Vicky Kalogera-NU.jpg as read to move to Commons when it was a clear copyright violation. The included URL in the summary does not contain any indication of a free license and instead clearly says © 2016 Northwestern University. Please be more careful with your tagging. --Majora (talk) 20:02, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

C'est moi[edit]

Dear Sfan00; you are currently going through numerous of my images (pour example) and stating that their is no information about the author, when it is clearly stated that I am the photographer. I wonder why this is - is this information visible only to me? Giano (talk) 18:23, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Sfan00 is improving the file description page by adding machine readable fields. This is a Wiki: nobody's edits are going to be perfect, and you are more than welcome to improve upon someone else's edits. -FASTILY 03:54, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know , all should within reason be up to spec now :) If not please let me know about specfic images below.Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:48, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Advice needed[edit]

Hi Sfan00. There is an edit-war going on regarding the addition of a non-free album cover to a second article. I have opened a talkpage discussion at that article and I would appreciate your views on the matter. Thank you. Dr. K. 20:48, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Advice and help needed[edit]

Hi, I would like your help to be able to put my information back on wikipedia in the correct way with the correct photos, as every time someone tag it for delete, and I have been on wikipedia for more than 5 years now and suddenly when I tried to update it with my recent films and projects, many people asked for delete, is there is any way you can help in this ? I can support you with all the information and data you need. I will be so thankful if you are able to. All my best, Hisham Abdel Khalek (talk) 00:00, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Green Sunday.jpg[edit]

Hello Sfan00 IMG, When you have the time, could you review this entry? I am working on the William Kurelek page and want to know if I'll be able to use it the way in which I need. Any help from you will be welcome. Nicola Mitchell (talk) 12:57, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
