File information request on my "talk page"


please look at the the "file information page" and the comment there: . All you ask for is there. May I ask why you ask?

BR, Michael. --MichaelK (talk) 10:01, 6 March 2022 (UTC)

@MichaelK: Which is license of that file? Is it available on some open license? If yes, how it may be confirmed? Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 10:40, 6 March 2022 (UTC)

Question on my "talk page"

Hi Mateusz, the file is used by a hiking trail. The relation is ralley66 (talk) 12 March 2022 (UTC)

@Ralley66: Thanks! I put note on Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 13:58, 12 March 2022 (UTC)
@Ralley66: I also proposed to avoid such potentially mistaken deletions Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 14:08, 12 March 2022 (UTC)
Resolved: file not deleted, similar files where I requested deletion are now without {{Delete}} and with note about situation, I proposed solution to avoid this problem and confusion in future Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 16:28, 12 March 2022 (UTC)


Thanks Mateusz, I've now added a license to File:Navigps_on_helmet.jpg. I still have this bike helmet from 14 years ago, but unfortunately the Navi GPS is no longer working, which is sad.

File license

I'm the author of file. I released it as Public Domain. I don't know legal requirements to do that. I just make a comment on the image file. Feel free to modify it accordingly,

Hi Mateusz, User Abunai is actually Ulfm. He has been killed in January 2012. Maybe Thomas, Michael or Bekri can help here. All three are still active, I saw Thomas and Bekri yesterday during the on-line pub-meeting. See also event where the foto has been taken --ToniE (talk) 13:46, 11 March 2022 (UTC)

@ToniE:! Thanks for info! I excluded this accounts from detector of problematic images. It is really sad that it happened :( Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 13:53, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
Resolved: not sure how to progress here, I linked this info on user talk page and file talk page so it will not be lost Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 16:26, 12 March 2022 (UTC)

entrance for emergency_ward_entrance

Hello, thanks for clarifying. You are more experienced than me, so may I ask - the wiki only says entrance=yes, but if I find a case where entrance=main is more appropriate, can I use it or is there a risk of breaking some applications like StreetComplete? Thanks --Pippo6 (talk) 16:00, 12 March 2022 (UTC)

@Pippo6: - I would not worry too much about breaking software and care primarily about correct data. Good point that entrance=main may be preferable, I made an edit - see Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 16:08, 12 March 2022 (UTC)

Missing file information for Flyer_tn.png

Hello, Mateusz.

Thanks for your message. I have updated the license of this image as you suggested:

Yes, I was the creator of that image. It's a PNG export of a OSM flyer in Spanish that I composed with LaTeX:

Links in Wikiapiary


regarding, you have to change the setting "Data" from "Pages" to something like "Page Queue". The setting is not reflected in the URL, thus you can not link to the plot directly.

File:Grimm - season5 - chapter4 1.jpg

Hello, the file was a screenshot that I did of the chapter. In this case I don't know which license woudl be the correct one.

@Cronoser: Looking at it, probably we need some fair use for that. It seems that there is nothing substantial you can do here, sorry for a false alarm. File:Lupin tv series s1e3.jpg is in the same situation, I edited it to add category that I excluded from this complaints. Sorry that I have missed that with Grimm file Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 07:36, 16 March 2022 (UTC)

File:Img 2821.jpg

Thanks Mateusz, I've labeled the image as public Domain. I hope it's better now.

@SlowRider: Can you consider using CC0? "auto release of the uploader's camera" reminds me about this court case and it would be good to have a clear situation Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 08:03, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

File:Taxiway lane explain VIE.png


I got the vector sources of the screenshot a long time ago from the author of the file at VIE to help with discovering the possibility to use OSM data internally by the VIE. As there is not defined license for the source file and we didn't discuss the license details, I removed the file from the proposal page. Didn't find a way to remove the file itself.

--kelvan (talk) 08:40, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

@Kelvan: - you can use Template:Delete to request that, is there any other file or page that also need to be deleted? Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 21:05, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

Removing a rendering example

Not sure why, but I just got a notification that you removed the "rendering in OpenSeaMap" example from this page:

Just wondering why you removed it? TheThe image is literally just text and a circle, I don't see how that could be a copyright violation. It's now confusing for anyone visiting the page, since the rendering example is empty...

Instead, maybe you could add this template? Template:PD-shape

This template should only be used on file pages.

Thanks --Kylenz 09:29, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

@Kylenz: thanks for spotting my mistake, I fixed it now. I intended to remove photo and got confused somehow, sorry. BTW, if you have by any chance replacement for that photo - and other in this category where replacement was not found then help is welcomed. I added the template you mention to this image, and yes it is a correct one to use. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 09:34, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! I can help replace most of those photos, except for [1] - I've never seen one of those before. But luckily there are lots of photos on wikimedia commons. Also, I figured out why I got that notification :) --Kylenz 09:55, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

Deletion of Map_Icons_Collection

There isn't a corresponding discussion, but I support the deletion. I have no idea, how the process of deletion is going to be. I don't see any use in keeping it, except for future historians, but they might have more interesting stuff than this. --MeastroGlanz (talk) 14:57, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

Graphic redesign of the Template:Information

Hello Mateusz Konieczny!

I've made a graphical redesign of the template for image description locally on the OSM wiki (Template:Information), notably in green color to distinguish it from the light purple of Commons (and thus to identify more easily the origin of the image).
What do you think about it?

Also, would you have a list of useful templates on image management that are on this wiki? (for example: a template to say that an image can be transferred to Commons or on the contrary a template to say that an image should not be transferred to Commons etc...)

Stone and rock

Please revisit the comments you have added for the distinction between rock and stone. It is a general distinction also made in English (and even if it wasn’t it did not matter a lot, because it is the definitions and descriptions that count, not natural language use). Strong distinction between rocks attached to bedrock and not attached to bedrock is present in German but not in English[1]. It is one more case of OSM tag design following German terminology. you added this sentence, based on someone’s comment in github who apparently wrote about things he doesn’t know well (he is German so he isn‘t a good reference for English language). Please conduct your own research. A stone is always loose, (unless the word is used to describe a material), it is describing a grain size, bigger than a cobble and smaller than a boulder. —Dieterdreist (talk) 08:01, 28 May 2022 (UTC)

@Dieterdreist: - it appears to not be defining difference, see say If you have a better source that describes it as a defining difference the feel free to edit that page to improve it Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 09:02, 28 May 2022 (UTC)
e.g. Robert Thorson writes “Rock is raw material in situ. Stone usually connotes either human handling or human use, although it can also be used to describe naturally produced fragments of rock larger than a cobble.” I just searched the web for „rock or stone“. —-Dieterdreist (talk) 19:08, 28 May 2022 (UTC)
OK, so there is a difference in at least some specialist terminology which does not exist in a common language. This - as far as I know - is distinct from German where distinction is also in a common language. Feel free to add note that specialist English geology terminology has such distinction. Note that distinction is quite obscure, as indicated by your own link and in typical usage this terms are used interchangeably @Dieterdreist: Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 07:10, 29 May 2022 (UTC)
Resolved: Page may be still improved, obviously - but it seems to me that my edits were not wrong Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 09:12, 6 June 2022 (UTC)

File source: Surface-Metal.jpg

You're asking this 12 years after the file was uploaded? Is there a new initiative to get all sources clarified?

Yes, it's my own photo, taken at Punchestown Racecourse in Kildare, Ireland, when the Oxegen festival was being set up. I'll update what I can in the file info. Hackery (talk) 22:35, 17 June 2022 (UTC)

Yes, see (BTW, feedback there would be welcome) - in general problem was ignored and it turns out that some people were really confused or just ignoring copyright. Fortunately many people are still around and can help or files are fixable, or are clear unfixable copyright violations Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 07:28, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
