FPC candidate[edit]

Howdy! per your comments on the FP nomination page, I've located the original image and uploaded it. It's less striking as a thumbnail, though the added resolution and surrounding whitespace probably help it as a composition. Please check again to see if this new image satisfies the requirements. If not, I'd appreciate any comments on how to improve the image (or any direct help!), since I'm fairly inexperienced at this, and don't have a particularly good eye for composition. :) GeeJo 23:22, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Species identification[edit]

Species identification is important for QI and FP, especially if the organism is prominent. BTW, the pretty mantis you found is a Sphodromantis viridis, Mantis religiosa has a typical black and white spot on the coxa, S. viridis can amongst other things, be recognized by the pale spot on the proximal part of its elytrae. Lycaon 17:46, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for the correction and the advice! It's comforting to know that some people like you will help in this regard. I find it quite difficult to properly identify species. Adamantios 18:25, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
No probs. I try, but it is not always easy with only the internet to search. For some taxa I have identification guides (like for North Sea Polychaetes ;-) ), but for others it is mostly a matter of research and looking at the fine details. Regards. Lycaon 18:29, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:Mecaflex-camera-HDR-BW-0b.jpg[edit]

I did an edit of Image:Mecaflex-camera-HDR-BW-0b.jpg with the background brightened and the bright spot on the camera darkened. Tell me what you think or if I made any mistakes. Thegreenj 20:33, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi greenj, thanks for the effort! I think I prefer the soft grey tone of the background in the original, it makes it a bit easier for the eyes. Of course many people might prefer the other version, you never know. Regards, Adamantios 10:22, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Ampere-o-meter-vintage-HDR-0h.jpg[edit]

I am right now uploading a rotated and centered version of this image. I am uploading it to the same name so if you do not like the changes -- please be sure to revert them. Darn, if I had waited 11 minutes, the upload time would have been the same as the width.

I have hindsight issues....

Great image, btw. -- carol 12:12, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi Carol, I'm glad you like it, it took me hours to get it right. I generally prefer to upload with a different filename, unless it's an old picture used all over the wiki space. Never mind, it's probably not so important :) Adamantios 21:15, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Just FYI, you don't have to move to CR anymore. Just put a discuss in the template and the bot will move it on its next round to CR. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 16:37, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Ooops sorry, that was me-- entering a bot command to loose inappropriate captialization, and I made a typo in the process. I'll clean it up if it hasn't been already. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 00:40, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Wonderful images[edit]

Hello ! I am quite impressed by the quality of your images. If I may make a suggestion, it would be to write binomial names in italic and with a link: for instance Echinops sphaerocephalus instead of Echinops sphaerocephalus. I have changed this in some of your pictures. Yours, Frédéric (talk) 11:20, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your kindness, it's encouraging. I often find that there's a surplus of hostility and rudeness in Commons and Wikipedia. It's good to be reminded that it's not necessarily so! I'll follow your advice regarding binomial names. Thanks again, adamantios (talk) 16:17, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
I second that. I have played with one of your images for my website. You can see the result here: [1] :-) notafish }<';> 12:12, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

eduNET proxies[edit]

{{unblock|1=IP address 194.63.235.157 is one of the filtering proxies used by the Greek schools network ([http://www.db.ripe.net/whois?form_type=simple&full_query_string=&searchtext=194.63.160.0+-+194.63.239.255&do_search=Search]). This block affects a great number of potential contributors and ultimately the very people that we should encourage to get involved. Please reconsider. Regards, [[User:Adamantios|adamantios]] ([[User talk:Adamantios#top|<span class="signature-talk">talk</span>]]) 16:13, 18 November 2008 (UTC)}}

✓ Approved based on the fact that the IP was never used for vandalism previously, and it was only given a year block which would have expired here shortly. _IF_ there is vandalism, the IP will promptly get reblocked. I'd suggest to your users to sign up for accounts - after all you can't upload on commons without an account. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 21:24, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the swift response. I found myself unable to edit even though I was logged in. Furthermore there are two more proxies (194.63.235.156 and 194.63.235.155) serving this region that weren't blocked, as far as I can tell. I think they are load-balancing, so it was only a matter of chance for your traffic to go through the blocked one. I do understand your concerns, ofcourse.

File:X25-network-diagram-0a.svg[edit]

hi, could u tell me which font is used in this picture (the "x.25 network" part)? i like it and just being curious --Aaa3-other (talk) 17:40, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello, I'm afraid it's too long ago for me to remember. What I can tell you, though, is that I used en:Inkscape. If you search for font definitions within the SVG, you will find the following: "-inkscape-font-specification:Times New Roman;". Hope that helps. Regards, adamantios (talk) 19:37, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
ok, ty :) (o, the thing is, that yes before asking it here, i opened and found that line just didnt believe it; remembered that font to something totally different, but now as i opened up wordpad it looks very similar so now i believe its that ... still feel surprised bit though, but nvm) thanks, aaa
