Image source problem with Image:Ying Yang Tai chi.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Ying Yang Tai chi.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, 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 files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 22:21, 8 October 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Kiryat Gat photo[edit]

Hello. You have recently added an image of Kiryat Gat to the city's article. The caption and the image title claims the picture is from 1941. Kiryat Gat was founded in 1955. Please check your source, the picture may be from a later date, or of a different place. Derwig (talk) 18:08, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

You could be right, Derwig - since all that the photo label says is the Jewish settlement of Gat - the distinction of Kiryat Gat and kibbutz Gat are not made. From my understanding, there was a settlement at what was later called Kiryat Gat well before the town was actually established - but it is not clear whether the photo is from one or the other site.StevenBirnam (talk) 10:42, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Tiverya Flag.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Tiverya Flag.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 20:21, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Kotel photo[edit]

Hi! Just wondering if you remember where you got Image:Yerushalayim praying at haKotel 1900.jpg from? I want to upload it onto commons and it needs a source. Thanks, Chesdovi (talk) 20:06, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Chesvodi: I was sent the photo by a friend in Yerushalayim. But I do believe it has been posted on several sites on the web. The photo was taken almost 100 years ago, and I believe is part of the Matson collection.

My friend pointed me, believe it or not, to the Palestine Remembered site, where he had found a lot of old photos of many cities and towns in Israel from the Mandate period and before. I checked with him on this photo and he said it was at http://www.palestineremembered.com/GeoPoints/Jerusalem_5180/Picture_15412.html

BTW: Noticed that you had done work on Chassidic families in Stanislov - Ivan--Frankivsk - Stanislowow Would you have any information on the Jewish community there, other than the Chassidim? StevenBirnam (talk) 17:26, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Haviva Reik at Haifa.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Haviva Reik at Haifa.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:06, 21 December 2007 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Aharon Shulov book cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Aharon Shulov book cover.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 19:30, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Migvan[edit]

Hi, StevenBirnam! Just wanted to drop you a note about the article Migvan that I deleted. You're absolutely right - there are processes for deleting articles. One of them is the Speedy Deletion process. If, for example, an article is just spam, or is a copyright violation, or has no context, then it is eligible for "speedy deletion", which adds it to Category:Candidates for speedy deletion. Any user can add one of the "speedy" banners to an article. Then an admin comes along and cleans up afterwards, deleting articles that truly do fall into one of the speedy criteria.

In the case of Migvan, the article was started yesterday by User:SZAgassi. About half an hour later, User:Martijn Hoekstra added the speedy tag. Four hours after that, I deleted it. All of that happened per the process and procedures laid out in WP:SPEEDY.

The reason Martijn added the speedy tag is because the article contained two sentences and a link to the kibbutz's website. Nothing about the article asserted any sort of nobility or said why the kibbutz was important or should be contained in an encyclopedia. It said nothing about being one of four urban ones.

So next time something happens to an article to which you feel attached, please consider that whatever happened might have been done by someone trying to improve the work. Please do not assume that the editors involved want to hurt you or the article in any way. We are all working toward the goal of a better encyclopedia. Thanks! -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 20:41, 27 December 2007 (UTC)


Image copyright problem with Image:Shmuel tankusExample.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Shmuel tankusExample.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 image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 20:29, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Yakum[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Yakum, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Yakum and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 00:44, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Airedale terrier image issues[edit]

I'm nominating for deletion the following images:

because there's really no discussion of these books and I don't see that we need a discussion of these books, and so there's no good reason to have them on WP. I've removed them from the Airedale Terrier article because they didn't add anything to the list of reference titles.

Also, I've flagged Image:Airedale Terrier Champion.jpg as questionable; the page doesn't give the source, and GFDL or any other release can be given only by the image's creator. Elf | Talk 20:27, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Meetup/Montreal[edit]

I see you are a user located in Montréal, you may be interested in: Wikipedia:Meetup/Montreal. Please add your name to the "Interested" or to the "Not interested" list. Date is set for May 3rd 2008 and Buffet La Stanza is the proposed location. If you have another idea for the location; propose away! Please pass on to any Montreal Wikis you maybe aware of and who are not yet listed as interested, may be interested, or not interested. Pro bug catcher (talkcontribs). 04:57, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Merci pour votre invitation. I would be delighted to join the meetup, but malheureusement, I most probably be out of town on that date. Please keep me updated - perhaps we can form a mailroom to keep all Montreal-based Wikipedians advised.(StevenBirnam) 12:22, 10 March 2008 (UTC)


Fair use rationale for Image:Semel palyam.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Semel palyam.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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 non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 22:00, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

This logo or emblem of the Palyam has the same origins and Fair Use Rationale as the Palmach emblem, Palmach.jpg, it is a logo of an organization, in this case, an organization over 50 years old. It is believed that the low-res image qualify for fair use on Wikipedia under US and Israeli copyright laws. As this, and other offical military emblems are displayed on Wikipedia, using the same fair use statement, what more is needed - especially since, in this case, and the Palmach emblem cited, the emblems were first posted on the Hebrew Wikipedia pages, with no issue regarding usage.

Image copyright problem with Image:Haviva Reik at Haifa.JPG[edit]

If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Image copyright problem with File:Rosh Pina Anniversary stamp.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Rosh Pina Anniversary stamp.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Proposed deletion of George M. Galambos[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article George M. Galambos, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

WP:ACADEMIC, tagged since 9/07

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Copyright problem: Hanita[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Hanita, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material.

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page. Leave a note at Talk:Hanita saying you have done so and an administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved.

Thank you for uploading File:King David Hotel Yerushalayim.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Airedale Nigel with degenerative retina condition.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

Non-free rationale for File:Dov Grobshtein in Siberia page 211.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Dov Grobshtein in Siberia page 211.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. Stefan2 (talk) 01:11, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

File permission problem with File:Airedale Nigel with degenerative retina condition.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Airedale Nigel with degenerative retina condition.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for 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 permissions-en@wikimedia.org, 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 permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

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 in section F11 of the criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. DferDaisy (talk) 01:00, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
