Hello, 4ing!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File:Statue ved Ulsrud Vgs.jpg[edit]

Hi, thank for you for notifying me about the image. I have one question, however. The law text states that this [the depiction of permanently mounted works of art and photographic works when located in or near a public space] does not apply when the work is clearly the main motive and the reproduction is exploited commercially (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Norway). I realise that the statue is clearly the main motive of the image, but I cannot see how the image is being "exploited commercially". Is it only necessary for one of the conditions to be met in order to mark the image as a copyright violation? Michae2109 (talk) 19:40, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

When considering the principle that Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content, that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose I do understand why the image was deleted. I apologise for my rather rash query, just ignore my previous message:)Michae2109 (talk) 19:50, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Sea Shepherd images[edit]

Hi, I tagged a whole pile of sea shepherd images for deletion as the flickr user who uploaded them has stated that he has only uploaded them to support sea shepherd and in fact does not have any rights to them. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a note on my talkpage on en.wikipedia. --Terrillja (talk) 16:04, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

File:Antarctic_iceberg,_2001_-2.jpg and File:Nature_Antarctica_20.jpg[edit]

Hi, regarding these images, I am not so sure that the 800x600 is an "upscaled" version with data loss. I think the flickr author (or perhaps the flickr software?) has done some arbitrary downscaling and saved of his/her original photograph to different sizes. Note that even the 500pixel version (on flickr) has a larger file size (90kb) than the 640pixel version (80kb). Editing software can easily produce a larger file size when down scaling an image (difference compression parameters for instance). Aesthetically I can not see any lower quality in the 800px version. The 800px version was uploaded by the flickr reviewer, so it is reasonable to assume it was from the flickr site, but no longer offered there now. --Tony Wills (talk) 00:41, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

hi;

you requested a rename of File:Bærums VerkSandvika Two-Wheeled Road Trip No. 15 Iceberg. Bærum Kulturhus Asymmetrical architecture in Norway is not uncommon. They have deviated landscapes making it reasonable enough to design buildings that complement the deviation. Icebergs are.jpg to File:Bærum kulturhus.jpg

Bruk av grafer og tabeller fra SSB[edit]

Hei! Anne-Sophie Ofrim sier at du er x-pert på opphavsrettigheter. Jeg har en en mengde grafiske fremstillinger fra Statistisk sentralbyrå (ssb) som jeg vil bruke til å illustrere en stor artikkel om energi i Norge med. På nettsiden til ssb står det at grafer og tabeller kan benyttes, bare en opplyser om at ssb er kilden. Er det en egen attribut som velges for å få dette til å gå gjennom ved opplastingen? --Frankemann (talk) 19:03, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Jeg har gitt et delvis svar på diskujonssiden til Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk · contribs). En mulighet er å kontakte SSB og høre om de kan legge inn et lisensmerke på sine nettsider, som klart viser at materialet er lisensiert med en for Commons akseptabel lisens (f.eks. {{cc-by-sa-3.0}}). - mvh 4ing (talk) 21:13, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Category:Ships by IMO number[edit]

Please realize that categorizing a ship in Category:IMO 9148506 by Category:Ships by IMO number without the piping |9148506 all are categorized by sequence IMO, not by the number 9148506. So please be so kind to revert. --Stunteltje (talk) 13:21, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

No, correct sorting is embedded in the template {{IMO}}. - 4ing (talk) 13:26, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
I think that there is a misunderstanding. For the Look up template you are correct. For the IMO category we have more than 11.000 ships categorized with the number behind the | --Stunteltje (talk) 13:42, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
The look up template is defining the default sort key for the category, and are applied in all the parent directories unless overridden by a custom sort key. This default sort key is the IMO number (numeric value, without the letters IMO). All of the entries in Category:Ships by IMO number are sorted correctly, including the few hundred categories I have created without adding a specific sort key (e.g. Category:IMO 9181510, see also Category:IMO 1004819 on the first page in Category:Ships by IMO number). It is therefore not necessary to include the sort key as long as you include Template:IMO (not to be confused with Template:IMOcat). - 4ing (talk) 13:59, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for this explanation. I started a long time ago with categorising ships and all the way things are improved. This template was not in my system and I forgot to add this one to add in new categories. Perhaps it is useful to add the template to the old categories by bot and skip the piping in the categories there. --Stunteltje (talk) 14:16, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes. I think that is a well suited task for a bot. I found 125 categories sorted under "I" ([1]), in addition there are probably houndreds of categories sorted under "I" in the [[Category:Ships built at NN yard]]. These errors would be fixed by inserting Template:IMO. BTW, are you aware of Category:IMO checksum failed? It contains IMO categories with invalid IMO numbers, and I think we should try to keep it empty. I have spent some time correcting these errors, but there are still quite a few left. - 4ing (talk) 07:50, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
I have seen that category. I know the problem, but also know where it comes from. For administrative reasons the Miramar-site gave these dummy-IMO numbers to old ships. For us it is as helpful as for Miramar for the same reason as for other ships by IMO number: it groups images for the same ships but with different names. Therefore I saw no reason to skip these categories myself. --Stunteltje (talk) 10:09, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
I strongly discourage using invalid IMO numbers just to group related categories. According to the description in Category:Ships by name, the category with the old name should be a subcategory of the one with the new name if no IMO/ENI number exists for the ship. - 4ing (talk) 11:29, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
You are right. I don't add these numbers any more and I hope to recognise a wrong number in time. --Stunteltje (talk) 11:41, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

David Villa Euro2008.jpg[edit]

Hi 4ing, I noticed that you were attempting to place deletion tag for David Villa Euro2008.jpg, This image is not an Getty Image it was uploaded by the user from Flickr who owns this image, Therefore this is likely to be Public Domain Image with expired license which was rightfully claimed by the Flickr Uploader. I would kindly advise you to stay away from putting speedy deletion tags on my pictures without giving a qualified reason. Thank You --PrinceSulaiman (talk) 21:32, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

The photo is tagged with (c) All rights reserved on Flickr, not with a free license as required by Commons. Moreover, the uploader is very unlikely to be the copyright holder, as the caption states that Photo credit should read JAVIER SORIANO/AFP/Getty Images. - 4ing (talk) 06:56, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:BB Troll (ship, 2000)[edit]

Sorry about that. So the "BB" isn't a prefix like HMS or SS? Would the same be true for the other ship categories starting with BB that I also changed?

Thanks for educating me! --Auntof6 (talk) 16:52, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

BB is an abbreviation for the shipowner, Bukser & Berging, and part of the name, not a ship type prefix. I think all ships listed above should be sorted under B. - 4ing (talk) 20:59, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
OK, thanks very much for clarifying. I will change them all to sort under B. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:19, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

IMO number[edit]

You were correct with the wrong IMO number of the ENTERPRISE. It is in fact 8434037. --Stunteltje (talk) 10:28, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

OK, I was not able to find an IMO number for her, only the MMSI number (246154000) - 4ing (talk) 10:32, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
In many cases (even old ships) you can find years of completion and IMO numbers at http://www.shipspotting.com. --Stunteltje (talk) 10:41, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I use it a lot, but was not able to find the IMO number on first attempt and was not sure pilot vessels required an IMO number. - 4ing (talk) 10:46, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
