Image display - is it working when Commons image and locally uploaded image has the same name? Especially in case where one proposes deletion of local image and replacing it with the Commons image using the same file name? Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 15:56, 29 December 2021 (UTC)

@Mateusz Konieczny: Oh, you are right. I failed to consider that case. It probably wouldn't work in that case. --Nw520 (talk) 15:58, 29 December 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for identifying duplicates with Commons!

Especially less obvious ones like (downscaled - so not an exact duplicate that would be easy to found)

(today one of mods went through part of deletion requests so Category:Image superseded by Wikimedia Commons got a bit more reasonable!)

Hello! And sorry for bothering you, but descriptions of files you uploaded need to be improved.

You have uploaded files which are licensed as requiring attribution. But right now attribution is not specified properly.

Please, ask for help if something is confusing or unclear in this message.

Please, fix that problem with this uploads - note that images with unclear licensing situation may be deleted.

Attribution may be missing completely or just be specified in nonstandard way, in either case it needs to be improved. Note that using CC-BY files without specifying attribution is a copyright violation, which is often unethical and unwanted. So clearly specifying required attribution is needed if license which makes attribution mandatory was used.

If it is applying to your own work which not based on work by others - then you can select own user name or some other preferred attribution or even change license to for example {{CC0-self}}

For your own work: ensure that it is clearly stated at file page that you created image/took the photo/etc

For works by others - please ensure that there is link to the original source which confirms license and that you used proper attribution, or that source is clearly stated in some other way.

Especially for old OSM-baded maps, made from data before license change on 12 September 2012 you should use "map data © OpenStreetMap contributors" as at least part of attribution

For old OSM Carto maps, which predate license change on 12 September 2012 you can use a special template {{OSM Carto screenshot||old_license}}


You reported missing attribution in mobisaar-App some time ago at (thanks!)

Is it still problem? I am asking, not checking myself as app cannot be installed on my phone ("app is not available for your device") Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 06:51, 29 July 2023 (UTC)

Hi Mateusz Konieczny, attribution is unfortunately still (as of today) missing. (Not sure why you can't install the app, I suppose that it's region-locked to Germany) --Nw520 (talk) 16:28, 29 July 2023 (UTC)

Superseded by Commons

Adding this template is really helpful - I have some half-automated tool that makes possible to handle replacing such images (still has manual verification etc), if "Superseded by Commons" and similar templates is used.

So thanks for adding it to this navigational signs - going through them, later will process also other tagged cases Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 19:35, 2 December 2023 (UTC)
