Image:Matthew Paul Deady.jpg not showing on preview[edit]

I am having that problem too. It seems like it's not our computer's problem, but a bug in the database. OhanaUnitedTalk page 06:27, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

OK, thanks. I saw someone else post the same thing at the help desk, so hopefully it will get resolved soon. Aboutmovies 06:32, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Commons usability[edit]

Greetings. You're right, I forgot to change the link to add a story after I changed the page name. It is fixed now, thanks a lot. guillom 08:19, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

File:Oregon State Capitol 1.jpg[edit]

Hi! Hope you like it now :-) --MGA73 (talk) 15:37, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

HotCat blanking[edit]

Hi! You seem to have accidentally blanked a file description page with HotCat here. Any idea what happened? If it's a bug, you might want to check your recent HotCat edits for similar cases. Regards, Jafeluv (talk) 23:35, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. Yes, it seems to be a bug. I checked my other edits around then, and no similar problem. If I recall, I think I was having some issues with that image, perhaps a cache problem? But odd. Aboutmovies (talk) 04:45, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Category:2011 in Portland, Oregon[edit]

Aboutmovies, I went ahead and created the category "Category:2011 in Portland, Oregon", so feel free to use this for the remainder of the year. I went through the "2011 in Oregon" category and made changes to appropriate images. You have taken and uploaded many images--thanks for your contributions to Commons! --Another Believer (talk) 17:13, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Oneliner[edit]

Hello Aboutmovies, thanks for your oneliner about the slippery slope. It will remain on my user page on my home Wikipedia for at least one day, as a counter-banner. Just fyi. Yours, Fransvannes (talk) 20:07, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Glaude Gatch[edit]

Hi!

Is the file Claude Gatch.png really a photo portrait of Salem Mayor Claude Gatch? I assume it is since he really was mayor in the 1890s. The description on the file that you uploaded, however, states "Charles B. Moores, mayor of Salem, Oregon". I don't find Charles B. Moores among the mayors of Salem at all, he does have a wikipedia entry and apparently he was the son of Salem Mayor John H. Moores. I was just wondering since I created a category for mayors of Salem and added the Claude Gatch file to it assuming it is a picture of a mayor. 128.214.214.95 16:10, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
