Wikipedia:VRT noticeboard

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Welcome to the VRT noticeboard

    Wikimedia's volunteer response team (VRT) handles copyright permissions, email inquiries from the public, reuse inquiries, article errors, and a wide range of non-public inquiries. The email service is operated and managed by a cross-project team of volunteers at the Meta-Wiki level and not by the English Wikipedia community. Actions by VRT members on English Wikipedia are ultimately subject to review by the Arbitration Committee.

    Please be aware that there is sometimes a backlog in processing tickets sent to the permissions-en queue. This backlog is currently 0 days.

    This noticeboard is primarily for
    1. Permissions verification and inquiries for text and files (hosted on the English Wikipedia) said to have been granted permission via VRTS.
    2. Requests for VRT member review of matters that have been described as VRT comments or actions.
    3. Other inquiries to VRT members that do not involve, disclose or reference private material.
    Do not post
    • Private information or links to private information (including but not limited to emails, phone numbers, physical addresses).
    • Fishing requests (asking for all details of a ticket or generally probing ticket information). You should make a specific request and clearly state the reason for your request.
    • Additional questions on a point, once a VRT member has indicated they cannot answer due to privacy issues. (Further inquiries and any complaints should be made via email.)
    • Requests for VRTS access (use meta:VRT/Volunteering instead).
    • Questions regarding media hosted on Wikimedia Commons (use Commons:Volunteer Response Team/Noticeboard instead).
    • Media questions unrelated to VRT (use Wikipedia:Media copyright questions instead).

    Eguchi files[edit]

    Hi, these three files have the ticket number #2008062610005886, but there is no confirmation by a VRT volunteer of the author's permission. Can someone give this a look? They may need to be tagged for deletion. plicit 00:08, 13 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi @Explicit. I am placing the ticket content here for your reference: "I have just created a page on your Wikipedia site titled 'Kyushin Ryu Jujitsu' and this contains text from my own website www.kyushinryujujitsu.com. I hereby give permission for the Wikimedia Foundation to re-use this content under the GFDL." These files are not okay for Wikimedia Commons and are not released under CC BY-SA 3.0. ─ Aafī (talk) 06:47, 13 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Nonetheless, insufficient permissions in any case. If these do not qualify for a fair-use here, feel free to tag them for deletion. I have put up a note in the ticket that the permissions are insufficient and have tagged the files on Commons as a failed license review. ─ Aafī (talk) 06:54, 13 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Thank you, I have tagged them for deletion. plicit 02:44, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
