Nice photo of the Ricketts bust

I once took a photo of the Ricketts bust at the Drake Street crossing in Monterey and this looks like it, but oddly the surroundings don't look like the ones I remember. Is this the same location? It's certainly the same bust-- perhaps a copy someplace else in Monterey? Or perhaps the Drake St. bust has been moved? Anyway, tell me where this one is, would you? sbharrisONE@earthlink.net (replace the ONE with 1). (sbharris on Wikipedia).

I don't know where this was actualy I know it wasn't far from Cannery Row. We passed it and I made th driver stop so I could get a picture. Probably that same place. There has been a lot of develope ment out there.--Amadscientist 02:27, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Hello Amadscientist!

Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. 85.182.121.196 19:03, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images

Hello, Amadscientist!

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.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

File:Republican Comitum Layout.svg

The reason it isn't creating a thumbnail is because of the following error:

Error creating thumbnail:

librsvg-ERROR **: _rsvg_acquire_xlink_href_resource called for external resource: Republican_Commitium_and_Curia_layout.svg-path5976-704.png base: (null)

This usually occurs when there is still a PNG image embedded in the file. Did you check to make sure it was 100% SVG with no PNG images left? That might fix the problem :) Cheers, -- Editor at Largetalk 03:29, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

re: userpage, copyright of images of statues

hi; linked in from your slt town pic; noticed your mission statement. statues are a tricky area when it comes to copyright. if it's a straightforward pic, not "artistic interpretation", & it's reasonably focused (or cropped so that it's focused) on the statue, it's probably ok; in that, technically, an "obvious" shot reproducing a PD work of art is not really copyrightable. kind of a grey area when you move from 2d to 3d art, but still, pls don't get over-zealous about it!

File:Peace dove.svg

When you make a significant visual change in a file which does not have a single "correct" appearance (such as a flag), then in most cases it's really better to upload it under a new (separate) file name -- especially if the existing file is already in use on Wikipedias etc... AnonMoos (talk) 06:02, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

That is incorrect. The reason we allow re-uploading images is to improve them. It was replaced for the very fact that Wikipedia uses the image as part of several DR venues. The updating of the image was appropriate, but your revert was not.--Amadscientist (talk) 22:51, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Your poor habits of communication

I really wish you could express the reasons for your actions without resorting to nonsense like "original png"[sic], which in the context of File:Peace dove.svg is pure meaningless gibberish jargon... AnonMoos (talk) 15:26, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

That was just a mistake that I couldn't correct afterwards. It was a gif file that the svg file was based on.--Amadscientist (talk) 21:39, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
OK; I don't mean to be too touchy, but between you referencing a non-existent "original PNG", constantly threatening to take things to Wikipedia dispute resolution (which has no jurisdiction here), and seeming to claim a right to ignore COM:OVERWRITE, I'm very close to having no idea whatsoever why you do anything at all -- and most of your "explanations" do not seem to convey much information to my mind... AnonMoos (talk) 22:25, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
I have no idea what you are talking about now. I have never threatened to take anything to dispute resolution sir. I am a volunteer there and we used this imgae as a logo but I have simply changed that at Wikipedia. As you know, images loaded here are many times used at wikipedia and artwork is subjective. However I agreed that the different versions should be seperate, not that I would'nt contiunue to improve the current one. As I said I simply errored when referring back to the original public domain image the svg was traced from. It was not a png image it was a giff image. If these things confuse you please do a search of these terms.--Amadscientist (talk) 05:00, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Sure. Thank you for coming to me about your concern. I agree to change it as long as it need not be that exact suggestion. I would say my initial question was about the copyright status and permissions as well as attribution. So perhaps: "Permissions/attribution status of Pricasso material". I will make that change and if you feel strongly that it is not enough, please feel free to edit the header directly as long as it is from my original posting and not the direction the discussion may have gone. I don't see that there is any question of the derivative status and that it can easily be diffed if needed to show the statements being made and when the files even say. Wikimedia can debate a good many things and hopefully a consensus should form, but the denial that this is a derivative work is simply inaccurate in my view.--Amadscientist (talk) 06:03, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Seth Thomas Clock

Hello,

I saw a picture of the Seth Thomas clock that you had taken. I was interested to know if you are the owner of that clock, or if you know who the owner of the clock is?

If you could please let me know I would appreciate it.

My email address is craigpdx71@yahoo.com

Thanks Craig

Hi Craig. The clock was inherited by my spouse and is in my home on a desk. It still has the original key.--Amadscientist (talk) 20:21, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
