Dear Fale, I have nominated some of your files for speedy deletion, but not as many as I should have done! Why do you upload so many almost identical pictures of each subject? I have noticed, for instance, 17 shots of one plant (File:Fale - Giardini Botanici Hanbury in Ventimiglia - 121.jpg files 121–138) that are only very slightly different from each other – they are not even bracketed exposures or different compositions! And not one of them is properly in focus, or correctly exposed! Wikipedia is not here to store the complete contents of your camera's memory. You have some very nice pictures here, but there are also a lot of duplicates that are wasting enormous amounts of storage space. Please be more selective and only upload one file of each subject, unless there are important differences between the exposures! Many thanks. SiGarb (talk) 15:24, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Hello again Fale. Following advice from a few admins, I have nominated a whole raft of your images for deletion, as per our earlier discussions. The full list is available at: Commons:Deletion requests/Some images by Fale. Please believe me, there is nothing personal about this, it's not a vendetta. I will try to make sure that the best (so far as I can tell) of each set of images remains unmarked and therefore will remain available to be used in any wiki projects. Please keep uploading your great images (just not 5–10 versions of the same shot!). Best wishes, SiGarb (talk) 09:02, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
BTW, if you agree that some of your images are surplus to requirements, you can nominate them yourself. They will then be deleted more quickly, more easily and without wasting anyone else's time. It would be best for you to go through your gallery yourself and decide which images are worth keeping (and you probably know which ones have already been used somewhere). Then you can just use {{speedy|author request}} – add that to the top of the file info, with your reason for deletion, and it should soon be dealt with. SiGarb (talk) 12:00, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
