Thank you for the DYK on Monument to the Fallen and Murdered in the East[edit]

Thank you for the DYK on Monument to the Fallen and Murdered in the East. I just did the initial translation from Polish and got the page working. Wikipedia user Piotrus cleaned it up massively and provided all the references and checking that me, as an English-only speaker, couldn't do (or was too lazy too).

Is the image under a compatible licence to be on Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Commons? Or is it gonna be Fair Use onle? --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 10:55, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
I don't know. I know someone added paintings from this website for some mayors of Nashville, so I thought it would be fine. Do you know how to check?Zigzig20s (talk) 13:54, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Since there is no copyright notice on the bottom of the page, the best thing is to email the owner of the website and ask. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 13:56, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Dykish Award[edit]

ViktorDyk.jpg
Slakr's Dykish Award

For your tireless efforts at handling DYK well, I present you the Dyk of all DYKs, Viktor Dyk. I have absolutely no idea who he is or what he did, but it's clear that he was a total Dyk. By the way, DYK that Dyk doesn't have a DYK? Perhaps we could DYK the Dyk. :P

Heh, but on a serious note: thanks for your endless patience in staying on top of the DYK entries. It's a thankless job until someone doesn't do at, at which point, people notice just how important you are. :) Anyway, thanks again for all you do. Cheers =) --slakrtalk / 04:52, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Passion[edit]

Thank you for moving Good Friday articles to prep. I rarely ask a personal favour like time of day and such things, but this time I do. I believe that (on top of my passion and vanity) the St John Passion deserves an image by the weight of the article and the power of Bach's handwriting, and that it would be better after the simple chorale, not during European night, in prep 2 that is. Off to singing, four days in a row now, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:40, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

I will set it back to the original image, but I think its not very legible. Maybe you are right. All the best Victuallers (talk) 20:49, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

I'll do my best, but I may need to "oomph" up the image. Its very poor at 100x100 - good singing! Victuallers (talk) 16:47, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your approach! Can we at least show John also, and the upper vivid "black" line. - I think the proposed image doesn't show details but energy - and creates curiosity ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:42, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Nimbus Records.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Nimbus Records.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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:07, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Exhausted?[edit]

I don't believe a polite request to ask you to explain your comment is out of order. For some reason I'm not entirely sure about, you seem to be accusing me of lying about where I got that image from. If that isn't the case then an explanation would clear up any misunderstanding. WCMemail 19:32, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

I am sorry if you have made that assumption. That was not my intention. I am finding it difficult to communicate on this issue and that is my fault I guess. That is why I am exhausted. An image needs to have a source. You seem to be saying that is where you got it from ... I don't dispute that. However when I found the image it did not record the source of the image. Commons may have been "your source" but Wikipedia requires "a source". "A source" is the place it came from originally. Ideally this is the name of the book or the painting or the photographer/date/place etc. This sourcing is what commons gives you. If you decide to not use commons then you lose that benefit. You need to show me how it is going to work without commons if you decide not to use it. (I understand why, I'm annoyed at commons too..... but it doesn't help to just moan about it).

My wish was to get your article onto the main page. I spent sometime adding a source for the picture and finding a ref to support the simplified hook that I suggested. (More work than is usual I suggest - and unappreciated and ineffective work at that). I did feel that I was wasting my time when you asked that I justify my actions and asked me to assist with clearing a hook that I had found problematic. I felt thwarted in my efforts to help, but you should not feel insulted. I am just disappointed that I was not able to get your article onto the main page and I have had to give up. That is a pity and I do hope that your next reviewer is able communicate better than I did. Getting to this point of spending time discussing a failure just adds to my feeling of working for no benefit ... I'm taking a break from approving hooks. Victuallers (talk) 20:16, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

No offence taken BTW I am not a newbie at DYK, I already have a number under my belt as well as contributing to a GA. I am just one of those editors who doesn't feel a need to trophy hunt on my user page.
[3] - Commons link and source to original image ie there was no need to guess as you did. I still see nothing in any policy that would compel me to use Commons and anyway that image was and is fully sourced. If I may offer a constructive suggestion, you weren't clear as to what you were looking for and I could have easily provided it (ie the commons page). In any case the reference to putting the image on Commons merely complicated matters ie I looked but could find no mention in policy it was a requirement. I now assume from your response there is none. For info, the hook is fully sourced in the article, so I am left rather bewildered what you were trying to achieve but no matter I did assume you were trying to help.
Anyway apologies if I have inadvertently added to your wikistress, we work in a medium that is not good for conveying nuance and it is all too easy to misintepret an innocent remark. I hope a break helps. WCMemail 21:20, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
