Tech:The page on South Korea was vandalized by someone named "Hagger". Just thought you should know.[edit]

  • Delete. This is not even vaguely a bug report, and I think we should summarily delete such tech requests upon their creation, rather than allow them to clutter up our already cluttered collection of tech requests. --Peter Talk 16:19, 21 August 2008 (EDT)

March 2008[edit]


Delete. I meant to release this .SVG map source into the Public Domain. Under the current Sharealike license, it can't be modified to make new maps. --Tally 19:26, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

And if there's some way for me to change the license on this, I for the life of me can't figure out what it is. :-p If I can do that without deleting, that would be much better. --Tally 19:31, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

Keep. Licence clearly granted as well. This photo is explicitly licensed by the author under the CC by-sa. He must own the copyright in order to do that. -- Mark 16:31, 5 April 2008 (EDT)
Keep. CC is just a way of licensing copyrighted works. Jpatokal 05:41, 6 April 2008 (EDT)

Keep. Scenes of crowds not focusing on any particular individual are not a privacy violation. (It's not a particularly good picture though...) Jpatokal 23:39, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

Delete. Definitely does not belong here, but I'm not sure what the intent was, so I'll leave it to run through the process. --Peter Talk 11:24, 28 April 2008 (EDT)

Delete No license info is specified. Tatata ask him for license a long time ago (see [1]), but author not answer. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 04:37, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

I suggested that license info must be assigned explicitly. I will keep in my mind your remark. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 04:08, 9 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Delete. Was on the en:Ohrid page, but it's pretty random and not useful, and there are plenty more pics for that destination already – cacahuate talk 17:00, 21 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Outcome: deletedcacahuate talk 03:14, 21 September 2008 (EDT)


  • Delete. We don't have much use for drawings here, we normally just use pictures and maps in the articles – cacahuate talk 01:52, 24 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Keep for using in en:Alexandria as a introduction to ancient history. The lighthouse was demonished in XIV century, so it is imposible to take a photo. But uploader should denote a drawing's author for a copyright cleanness... -- Sergey kudryavtsev 06:12, 25 June 2008 (EDT)
Hmm. What do others think about this? In general we should be using current pics of what a place looks like now, and not old pics or drawings... those are usually more relevant to Wikipedia than us... but I'm a little unsure on this one, it's one of the 7 wonders... but what's left there now? is the site a tourist attraction? is there rubble there now? do people visit it? – cacahuate talk 15:47, 25 June 2008 (EDT)
Now there is Citadel of Qaitbay. I don't know how much its tourist popularity. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 03:41, 26 June 2008 (EDT)
Keep. Absolutely nothing of the original lighthouse remains, they've built the abovementioned fortress above it. But I agree with Sergey: as one of the original Seven Wonders and an icon of the city, the drawing is important as a historical reference and should be kept. I've added the source, it's a valid old PD image. Jpatokal 06:21, 28 June 2008 (EDT)
Then keep we shall – cacahuate talk 23:47, 28 June 2008 (EDT)


  • Delete. Of no use to a travel guide (and it's not an orchid) – cacahuate talk 15:52, 26 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Delete a evident site advertising from user's personal page. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 03:54, 29 August 2008 (EDT)
  • Comment. I'm not sure what shared policy is on touting user pages. On :en, we decided to delete only those pages that contain large amounts of external link spam. On :ru, we decided to delete touting user pages when that user has never contributed beyond the creation of their userpage-advertisement. I'm inclined to follow the :ru model here (unsurprisingly) and delete this page, but I'd like to hear other thoughts from shared users. --Peter Talk 12:43, 29 August 2008 (EDT)
