Hey Anna, thanks a lot for your picture of the solar tree in your home town!!! I loved it. I am working in photovoltaic projects and want to design solar trees but moving ones (tracking), or fix but not necessarily beautiful, but cheap. Thanks again and great work!

Hallo Anna reg,
könntest du bitte Namen und Lebensdaten des Künstlers ergänzen, der diese Büste erstellt hat. Steht die Büste eigentlich drinnen oder draußen? --Túrelio (talk) 08:28, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Die Büste steht drinnen - und ich kann versuchen, die Daten des Künstlers herauszufinden... bis jetzt hab ich nur durch die englische Wikipedia (en:Ernst Späth) gelernt, dass sein Schüler Percy Lavon Julian die Statue in Auftrag geben ließ... --Anna reg (talk) 08:01, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Die Büste steht drinnen - dann gibt es allerdings ein Problem, wenn der Künstler nicht schon 70 Jahre tot ist, weil Panoramafreiheit da nicht gilt. --Túrelio (talk) 08:21, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

An die Panoramafreiheit hab ich diesmal gar nicht gedacht - und da die Büste erst nach Ernst Späths Tod (1946) aufgestellt wurde, kann der Künstler noch keine 70 Jahre tot sein... ich werd unabhängig davon, ob das Bild nun in Commons bleiben kann oder nicht versuchen, so bald wie möglich was über den Künstler herauszufinden... lg --Anna reg (talk) 11:47, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

{{VN}}[edit]

Hi Anna,

I noticed that you added a translation table to Saxifraga cernua. Recently, a slightly more elegant template, {{VN}} has been created by Rocket000, which is explicitly for this purpose. You may want to use that slightly more "clean" template in your future work here.

Best wishes,

--Slaunger (talk) 13:43, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for pointing out the new template - all the more as I frequently add translation templates - the only thing I'm not alltogether happy with is the German title of the template (the traduction of 'Vernacular Names' to 'Volkstümliche Namen')... --Anna reg (talk) 19:34, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Anna. Thank you for nominating my image for QI. I'm glad you liked it. Best wishes.--Mbz1 (talk) 03:17, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

You are welcome - I like to nominate nice pictures I find as I think that marked QIs in galleries can help a lot when looking for good pictures to illustrate a subject (and I'm looking forward to mark this one in the gallery Pearl ;->). In my opinion there should be more people nominating QIs as I have the impression that most nominations are made by the photographers themselves... (which is why you were able to have your discussion about nominator and photographer... ;->) --Anna reg (talk) 10:30, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello Anna! Thanks for your comments. I appreciate them :) I've added the information to the photo File:Hydrangea macrophylla petals.jpg as you suggested. My regards!

Tfioreze

You're welcome. I started looking through your gallery and realised that you include hardly any of your images in galleries - perhaps that would be something you could consider as well? (Of course, not all pictures have to be in a gallery, but images illustrating new points of view can improve a gallery...)
And one more suggestion - have you tried nominating pictures as QI's?

Banská Bystrica[edit]

Hallo Anna aus Gleisdorf (wenn es in Gleisdorf eine Aluminiumgissserei gibt, war ich das schon einmal). Ich kam als Angehöriger einer Armeeeinheit, nicht SS, am 29. August 1944 quasi als "Feuerwehr" in die Zips und verbrachte in der Folge einige Monate in der Slowakei, vor allem in Poprad und am Duklapass, aber auch an zahlreichen anderen Orten. Insofern interessierte mich der Wikipediaartikel "Slowakischer Nationalaufstand", auch weil sich die Ereigniss zum 65sten Mal jähren. Auf Anregung hin habe ich den Beitrag zuerst ergänzt und dann gab es eine Aufforderung den Beitrag noch etwas umfassender zu gestalten. Das liegt jetzt als Arbeitsfassung vor. Nun wollte ich das Bild des Mahnmals in Banská Bystrica zur Abrundung des Schlußabschnitte von der Altfassung in meine übertragen, bin dabei aber auf erhebliche Schwierigkeiten gestosse, auch weil ich das Regelwerk nicht durchschaut habe. Man sagte mir. ich benötigte Deine ausdrückliche Erlaubnis das Denkmalbild in meinen Artikel einzustellen, sagte aber nicht ob das formlos oder nach strengen Regeln zu erfolgen hat. Kannst Du mir helfen? MfG--79.212.76.46 15:16, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Buttons (sewing)[edit]

Hi. Did you notice there's also Clothing_buttons? Maybe the two galleries should be merged. Regards, Wutsje (talk) 14:02, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

This gallery was named Button collecting (clothing buttons) yesterday - and as you can see, I saw that gallery (there's a link at 'see also'), but I decided that a gallery about buttons couldn't be included in a gallery focusing on their importance for collectors. I'm a bit unsure what should be done now, as the new name doesn't include anything about collecting and therefore really seems to suggest a redundant gallery... I see two possibilities - either we include 'button collecting' in the gallery about buttons (and decide which name we like better) or we change the name once again from clothing buttons to eg. button collecting (as Tyranny Sue is correct that the former name was quite long...)
I will suggest both possibilities in the discussion page of Clothing buttons
--Anna reg (talk) 15:53, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi Anna, You wrote on my talk page: "I personally don't like links to wikipedias from a gallery - except as interwikilinks ([[en:Button collecting]] [[simple:Button collector]] at the end of the gallery, showing up on the left side just below the tools) or in language templates ({{VN |de= Knöpfe sammeln |en= butoons collecting |fr= }} at the top of the page) - as commons is international... but of course links to other commons-galleries are great! ;-> Though I tend to put them in a See also: [[link]] instead of directly in the headline... but that's probably a matter of taste..."
Could you please direct me to a gallery that illustrates this well? I'm relatively new to the commons & galleries :) Thanks very much.--Tyranny Sue (talk) 00:46, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Well, recommending one gallery is a difficult task - as I'm hardly ever completly happy with a gallery - each time I look at one, I see new mistakes or things that should be changed... - and it seems as if I'm not the only one - after all the project 'featured galleries' doesn't seem to be starting soon... ;-> I still recommend the link as there is a list where one can recommend galleries one likes (and I still hope that one day there will be featured galleries...)
A gallery I am quite proud of would be Innere Stadt (Vienna) - and perhaps Papaver as an example of a plant gallery - but as you can see, I just changed a few things in that gallery... ;->
I also really like the featured galleries (and as I think that links are important, I'm helping a bit with the descriptions & links on featured architecture, featured flowers and featured animals - until now nobody complained ;->)
Oh, I just saw that Eye has a language template with interwikilinks - but the template used is the old one... ;-> (The new one -
No common name has yet been provided in this user_talk. (Soon common names will be retrieved from wikidata)
changes its headline to the language you chose)
I hope that I managed to include something helpful in that reply ;-> - and don't hesitate to ask, if you have any questions! --Anna reg (talk) 01:44, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi Anna, Thanks for the pointers. I still want to keep the wikipedia links for now. Maybe if one day I paste the whole thing into the wikipedia button collecting article, that will change. I don't mean to be an English-language-snob or anything. Maybe I still don't really understand how Commons works. I'm still learning, and the button page is probably going to be huge eventually (though it will take a lot of time unless I get some help somehow) since buttons were made in so many materials & styles, etc. (arg! It's a huge project.)--Tyranny Sue (talk) 12:43, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Rosa rugosa[edit]

Bonjour, la ville de Melle a une collection de roses anciennes, mais aussi quelques hybrides. Je ne peux pas répondre de façon sure, mais en y réfléchissant bien, ces rosiers doivent plutôt être des hybrides de rosa rugosa (Cinnamomeae). Bonne journée--Rosier (talk) 14:48, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

File:Rose Vison Blanc 20070601.jpg[edit]

Salut Anna,

Je me permet d'écrire en français, ça sera beaucoup plus simple pour moi.

Tout d'abord, félicitation pour tout ton travail de catégorisation concernant les roses. Par contre, je dois avouer que je n'y connais moi-même absolument rien en fleurs. Un jour de printemps, alors qu'il faisait beau, je suis allé me promener dans cette roseraie et j'en ai profité pour prendre les fleurs en photo, en prenant soin de photographier également les petites pancartes avec le nom des fleurs inscrits. Mais parfois, soit il n'y avait pas de pancartes (j'ai marqué "unknown" pour les fleurs concernées), soit il n'y avait qu'une seule pancarte avec deux fleurs différentes aux alentours, et j'ai donc pu me tromper. Par conséquent, si tu penses qu'il y a des erreurs, n'hésites surtout pas à corriger. Okki (talk) 22:59, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Salut Okki,
Je vais essayer de repondre en francais (je le comprends bien, mais je fais beaucoup d'erreurs en écrivant). :-)
Merci pour tes félicitations - j'avais l'impression que ce travail était necessaire ;->
Mais même si je commence à reconnaître certain rose maintenant, je ne sais pas beaucoup plus sur ces fleures que toi (je m'aide avec help me find roses ;-> ). Avec l'image 'Vison Blanc' j'étais étonnée de trouver une fleure rouge - et une verification sur 'help me find' m'a confirmé que la 'Vison Blanc' est un cultivar blanc... (mais je n'ai aucune idée quelle cultivar l'image presente et alôrs je peux seulement le changer en 'unknown')
Mais comme j'ai déjà éssayer de decider sans succès le cultivar de quelque de tes images, j'ai encore une question concernant les 'petites pancartes': Est-ce qu'ils offrent vraiment seulement le nom du cultivar - et pas par example aussi une date ou une abréviation du groupe de cultivar?
Dans le jardin de rose oú j'ai fait mes photos il y avait l'année de création et des raccourcis comme F., TH. (Tee Hybride = Hybride de thé), Eng. (Englische Rose = Rosier Anglais),... - ça cerait interessant car il y a quelques photos ou 'help me find' me presente plusieurs cultivars et des informations additionelles seraint necessaires pour pouvoir decider le cultivar...

Off center portrait[edit]

IMO off center portrait is helpful only when the subject is looking at opposite direction. When the subject is directly looking at the camera it looks odd to me. See the following examples.

There is a whole category dedicated to subject but is not well organized. Category:Portraits by angle between observer and subject's face

--Nevit Dilmen (talk) 21:54, 29 August 2010 (UTC)


I don't think of myself as an expert concerning photographing - but I do like thinking about compositions and therefore I would like to say, that in my opinion, it is not necessarily the direction in which the subject is looking, but the lines/motions the eye would follow - and in this case, the cloth draped over the woman could be a line making a slight off center composition interesting.

I tried to show what I mean in the two following derivatives of the discussed image and a featured picture I found - off center, looking directly into the camera but her body is slightly turned and her clothes draw the eye into the 'empty side' of the image.

Rosa cultivars[edit]

Dear Anna,

I am a botanist, but not a specialist of roses. I have added recentlty pictures of two roses, which were not present in Commons:

  • 'Ella Elisabeth' to Rosa cultivars E, an obtention of my friend Ivo Pauwels, to which he gave the names of his daughter 'Elisabeth' and granddaughter 'Ella',
  • 'Lieve Louise' to Rosa cultivars L, one of the last obtentions of Ivo's friend Louis Lens, to which he gave the name of Ivo's wife ('Lieve' is her first name and 'Louise' her mid-name).

When adding this latter, I found it very strange that the category Rosa cultivars L had subcategories for (only) 5 roses, of which 4 ('Livin' Easy', 'Lavender Dream', 'Lord Byron' and 'Lavaglut') were not present in the main category. That is the reason why I emptied these subcategories and integrated their content in the main category. If you think that I was wrong, do not hesitate to reverse my changes.

Best regards, --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 06:54, 6 July 2011 (UTC) PS: Un bonjour amical depuis la Belgique.


Dear Anna,

You have got a "Common Barnstar" for your work on Roses. I have got a "Botany Barnstar" for my classification of (unidentified) species. Our works are thus in a way complementary.
I have encountered similar issues when reviewing a lot of classifications. I then put the species in a category and when there is already a created page with/without category, I put it the corresponding category. However, I really do not know what is the best option for the Rosa cultivars...

Kind regards from Belgium, Amicalement depuis la Belgique, Beste Grüße aus Belgien, --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 11:30, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Crocus cultivars[edit]

Dear Anna,

I am not sure that what you are doing in the page Crocus cultivars is OK. In your section Cultivars by alphabet you are actually mixing three different kinds of cultivars:

  • The category Crocus cultivars was originally created for the the so-called Crocus vernus cultivars, i.e., the large-flower Dutch crocusses derived from Crocus vernus and Crocus flavus. Perhaps this category should more accurately be renamed Crocus vernus cultivars.
  • For the so-called Crocus chrysanthus cultivars‎ a category Crocus chrysanthus cultivars‎ was created. This category is devoted to selections and cultivars from Crocus chrysanthus and hybrids of this species with Crocus biflorus and Crocus aerius, as, e.g., Crocus 'Blue Pearl', 'Snowbunting' or 'Cream Beauty'.
  • Selections of other Crocus species should remain related to their wild taxon, i.e., Cocus sieberi for its selections 'Bowles White' and 'Tricolor', Crocus versicolor for its selection 'Picturatus', Crocus tommasinianus for its selections 'Barr's Purple' and 'Ruby Giant', etc.

Best botanical regards, --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 21:56, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Dear Meneerke bloem,
I'm aware that I mixed cultivars of different crocus species in that gallery, as I wanted to make a gallery giving an overview of all crocus cultivars.
Do you think that would be possible, if I include a section about the different groups (cultivars by species with links to the corresponding gallerys) and create Crocus vernus cultivars? Or is it a bad idea to call a crocus cultivar only by its name - without adding the species name (as is done for dahlias, roses,...)?
Best regards, Anna reg (talk) 22:17, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

I see that the problem isn't only concerning the gallery, but also the category crocus cultivars, as I includes Crocus chrysanthus cultivars after seeing that there were two crocus cultivar categories in Category:Cultivars. I still would prefer to create a category & gallery for all cultivars with subcategories for the different groups, but I'm not sure how that 'master-category' should be called in this case. Anna reg (talk) 22:53, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Dear Anna,
I think that the following would be the best solution.
The current category Crocus cultivars, which already contains the sub-category Crocus chrysanthus cultivars‎, should become a "master-category".
I could create a second sub-category called Crocus vernus cultivars, in which I would put the content of the current category.
Creating other subcategories for the cultivars of other species looks in my meaning redundant, because their cultivar must be associated with their species name, e.g., Crocus versicolor 'Picturatus' (never Crocus 'Picturatus').
Best regards, --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 08:06, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
So, I have created a category Crocus vernus cultivars, and redirected the page Crocus vernus cultivars to it. The 184 pictures which are currently in the category Crocus cultivars, should be now manually be redirected to the new category Crocus vernus cultivars. I will do it... --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 08:45, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
PS: Dutch Horticultural conventions request that, except for Crocus 'Blue Pearl' (which is very close to Crocus biflorus), Crocus chrysanthus cultivars sould be called Crocus chrysanthus 'Skyline', Crocus chrysanthus 'Gipsy Girl', etc. According to he RHS conventions Crocus 'Gipsy Girl', etc. is OK. --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 09:15, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
A couple of pics in the category Crocus cultivars were actually Crocus chrysanthus cultivars. The remaining are presumably all Crocus vernus cultivars.
Most of the unclassified pics in category Crocus and in category Unidentified Crocus are presumably Crocus vernus cultivars too.
I have to check all these pics one by one... --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 11:20, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Dear Reginald,
thanks for your help - I will correct the names in the galleries & add links to the species galleries with a 'cultivar'-section (as I did for Crocus tommasinianus). The pictures in the new gallery Crocus vernus cultivars should be correct (I will check with your categorisation as soon as I have some time).
Best regards & have a nice weekend!

Fotos der Slowakei[edit]

Hallo Anna, ich bin durch Fotos aus Ružomberok auf dich gestoßen. Ich bin gerade dran und erstelle für die gesamte Slowakei Listen über die de:denkmalgeschützte Objekte in der Slowakei ähnlich jenen in Österreich. Logischerweise fehlen mir da noch jede Menge Fotos ;-) - nachdem du schreibst, dass dich die Nordslowakei nach wie vor interessiert, vielleicht hast du da auch da ein bissl Zeit übrig und kannst die Listen ergänzen. --gruß aus dem Wienerwald K@rl (talk) 12:30, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Hallo Karl, nein, nicht wirklich... nur nicht ganz sicher, wie ich am Besten drauf antworte, nachdem mir nicht ganz klar ist, was für Hilfe du dir vorstellst.
Ich hab mir die Listen gestern ein bisschen angeschaut (echt detalliert!) und gesehen, dass für den Prešovský kraj (und damit die Gegend, aus der ich am meisten Bilder hab - allerdings nicht unbedingt gezielt von 'denkmalgeschützten Objekten' ;->) die Listen alle noch zu erstellen sind. Meinst du mit 'ergänzen' Hilfe beim Erstellen der Listen, die deutsche Beschreibung & das Koordinaten raussuchen oder die Bebilderung - durch Suchen auf commons (falls du das nicht gleich beim erstellen machst) bzw. durchforsten der eigenen Bilder?
Liebe Grüße, Anna reg (talk) 16:44, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
P.S. Übrigens - ich glaube, ein Template für die verschiedenen Krajs wäre auch noch sinnvoll, so dass man nicht auf die Seite Denkmalgeschützte Objekte in der Slowakei gehen muss, um von einem Kraj in den nächsten zu wechseln...
Hallo Anna, ich bin derzeit dran, die Rohlisten für den letzten Kraj, nämlich den Presovský kraj zu erstellen. Mit rund 3.500 (siehe de:Portal:Slowakei/Denkmallisten ist das der umfangreichste. Die mach e ich selbst. Geholfen wäre mir mit Ergänzungen von Fotos, Koordinaten oder auch Beschreibungen. Da ich selbst SK-0 bin, ist mir mit jeder Übersetzung geholfen ;-) - User:MarkBA hilft mir dabei sehr. Er hat schon eine ganze Liste für die begriffe unter de:Diskussion:Denkmalgeschützte Objekte in der Slowakei gemacht. Ich wollte eigentclih dass auch auf der slowakischen Wiki die entsprechenden Listen gemacht werden. Nur dort mangelts an Kapazitäten.

To help with rosa cultivar links[edit]

Morning, I tinkered up a little template to save us quite a bit of typing: {{Rosa}}. {{Rosa|Aloha}} produces [[Rosa 'Aloha'|'Aloha']] and {{Rosa|Schneewittchen|Iceberg}} produces [[Rosa 'Schneewittchen'|'Iceberg']]. --Pitke (talk) 09:57, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Sounds great! (even though I don't really type that very often - you probably already saw my empty |[[Rosa ''|'']], )
Would it be possible to include the 'bracket rose links' (e.g. Rosa 'Flamingo' (1979) in that template? That would help me a lot! Ideally in a form where even the brackets aren't necessary - something along the line of {{Rosa b|Flamingo 1979|Flamingo}}...
--Anna reg (talk) 10:19, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Easy enough. {{Rosa2|Flamingo|1979}} produces [[Rosa 'Flamingo' (1979)|'Flamingo']] and {{Rosa2|Flamingo|1979|foobar}} produces [[Rosa 'Flamingo' (1979)|'foobar']]. --Pitke (talk) 11:44, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Great! Thanks a lot!
While I have already worked with templates (and even created some - like {{Rosa cultivars TOC}} - after a schema I found) I don't know that much about creating them...

Helford River[edit]

Hi,

There's a problem with your otherwise good work on the Cornish cats I've noticed: Specifically Category:Helford River and Category:Helford Estuary. This is because w:Helford River is not a true river (its a ria). The Helford River is entirely tidal, and has no non-tidal element, which means the Helford Estuary is non-existent.--Nilfanion (talk) 12:03, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks - I tried to check on Google Earth and thought that I had found one of the creeks entering the estuary called Helford...
I'll correct that mistake immediately. Anna reg (talk) 12:07, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

I just stumbled about the Helford River pictures that led me to the creation of the Helford Estuary category (File:The Helford River - geograph.org.uk - 418453.jpg). Of course I don't know if the picture is named correctly. Anna reg (talk) 11:46, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

One issue is there are two streams at the head of the estuary, and neither is marked on maps at any scale. If one is the "Helford", there's no obvious way to identify it as such. Indeed, the Environment Agency considers the other one to be the main stream (but doesn't label it, so its not clear if its the "Helford"). I haven't found any indications from reliable sources that either of those streams is the "Helford", and if one is the Helford which one it is. In the absence of any evidence, it would be best to treat both as unnamed streams. If evidence is found, great, it can be handled then.--Nilfanion (talk) 12:55, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Plymouth Sound[edit]

A little more irritating than the above: Plymouth Sound is just the large bay to the south of the city, and not any of the estuary complex.

The Tamar Estuary is exceptionally complex in terms of sheer number of names that apply to various sections. The Hamoaze is roughly the bit from Tamar Bridge to the mouth of the Tamar - but excludes all the side creeks in that stretch.

I'll probably have a bash at this myself in next few days.--Nilfanion (talk) 22:02, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Done a bit of research to work it out. The largest conservation designation covering this ares is the Plymouth Sound and Estuaries SAC, which treats the Sound as distinct from the estuaries. Thankfully, the term Tamar Estuary is used to cover everything north of Cremyll (including the Lynher and Tavy estuaries) - so Category:Tamar Estuary is useable as a catch-all.--Nilfanion (talk) 09:58, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

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

Clematis patens[edit]

Hi Anna! I see that you have put a number of Clematis cultivars under the Category:Clematis patens. Only images of the true wild species and garden selections of the that species should be placed here. Hybrids involving Clematis patens and other species are usually placed in the Category:Clematis Early Largeflowered Group (there are exceptions). A good source of info is Clematis on the Web Uleli (talk) 18:04, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the link - I must admit, that in this case I just followed the File names (there were pictures of the cultivars in the category Clematis patens - most of them called Clematis patens 'cultivar name'). I will try to check a bit more in the future... Anna reg (talk) 18:10, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Prince de Monaco Olesen 1985 JdP 2013-06-16.jpg[edit]

Bonjour ! Je n'y connais rien en roses, mais j'ai relevé l'identification fournie par le Jardin des Plantes. L'étiquette mentionne les informations suivantes : « Remontant. groupe des hybrides de thé. Rose Prince de Monaco ('Poulart'). Olesen, 1983, Danemark ». Il est possible cela dit que l'étiquette ait été mal placée ou déplacée par quelqu'un au sein de la roseraie. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 09:58, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Pour compléter : des erreurs ont déjà été relevées dans les étiquettes du Jardin des Plantes, donc une mauvaise identification est tout à fait possible. Je retournerai à la roseraie prochainement pour vérifier. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 13:23, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Category:Quality images of cultural heritage monuments in Austria[edit]

Hallo Anna reg, du hast bei einigen Bildern die Kategorie Category:Quality images of cultural heritage monuments in Austria entfernt, z.B. File:Power_at_sea_Macht_zur_See_Hofburg_Vienna.jpg. Verstehe ich nicht ganz. Eigentlich ist diese Kategorie nur eine Zusammenfassung aus der Darstellung eines denkmalgeschützten Objekts und der Auszeichnung als Quality image. Man kann jetzt den Denkmalschutz in Frage stellen, oder die Qualität des Bildes, aber nicht die logische Konsequenz aus beiden. lg --Herzi Pinki (talk) 09:25, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, du hast das schon richtig gemacht, habe die Kategorie Category:Quality images of the Hofburg, Vienna übersehen. lg --Herzi Pinki (talk) 09:40, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
Ok, passt - mir können natürlich Fehler passieren, aber eigentlich bemüh ich mich, eine Kategorie nur zu entfernen, wenn sie überflüssig (weil das Bild in einer genaueren Unterkategorie eingeordnet ist) oder falsch ist... aber überprüfen schadet auf keinen Fall! ;->
Für die Hofburg-Kategorie bin sogar ich 'verantwortlich' (ich hab sie vor einiger Zeit kreiirt, nachdem die Hofburg-Kategorie so viele Unterkategorien hat, dass QIs nur mehr schwer zu finden waren). Bei der Kreation von QI-Unterkategorien bin ich allerdings etwas unsicher, nachdem bei QI eigentlich entschieden wurde, dass man mit Gallerien und nicht mit Kategorien arbeitet, um ein 'doppeltes Kategoriensystem' zu vermeiden. Meiner Meinung nach ist das nicht (mehr) möglich - aber man kann vermeiden, QI-Kategorien mit nur 3 Bildern zu machen...
Ganz liebe Grüße, Anna reg (talk) 12:07, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

New QI galleries[edit]

Hello Anna, thanks for starting to create the gallery pages. However, be advised that the bot cannot handle multiple gallery block per page. It will always sort the images into the first gallery block. (You have multiple sections under Architecture/Religious..). --Dschwen (talk) 22:38, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

I know (I'm one of those people sorting pictures in the birds-gallery ;->). But Religious and Transport are the 2 galleries we already have a subpage on our list - churches/bridges (I'm not sure if all the sections should have subpages or just the largest ones). I also sectioned 'Public Buildings', but I'm not sure if that's a good idea - if we think that we will perhaps need subpages (now or sometimes soon) then the sections should remain - if not, it's probably better to put everything in one gallery, or there will be one more big gallery needing manual maintenance...
But I think I'm done for tonight and think about changes/solutions tomorrow... Anna reg (talk) 22:48, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
I removed/changed the sections in public buildings and religious - only sections with their one page (Churches & Bridges) remain below the main gallery with an overview gallery and a link to the subpage. The final galleries (Agricultural and Industrial and Miscellaneous) are now also done. If you think something should be changed - feel free to do so! Anna reg (talk) 13:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
Hallo Anna, ich hab jetzt doch nochmal ein bisschen was umbenannt um Commons:Quality_images/Subject/Architecture in die gleiche Struktur wie Commons:Quality_images/Subject/Objects zu bringen. Ausserdem habe ich noch Redundanzen bei einigen Kategorienamen entfernt (Religious (churches and Temples)/Churches -> Religious/Churches). Und iich habe konsequent /Other seiten eingefuegt, damit nur in den letzten Ebenen des Kategoriebaums einsortiert wird, und nicht in Knotenkategorien (wieder um es mit Subject/Objects zu harmonisieren). Ich werde das jetzt so in den QIHelper eintragen. Danke schonmal fuer Deine Sortierarbeit! --Dschwen (talk) 15:02, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Fein! Aber ich hab schon wieder eine Frage - bevorzugst du (ihr? weiß nicht, wer aller bei der Aufteilung von Objects beteiligt war) verlinkte Listen, oder wäre es ok, wenn ich wieder ein paar Beispielbilder einfüge (mit der jetzigen Struktur, die man dann ja auch im Inhaltsverzeichnis sieht)? Ich finde Gallerien ohne Bilder immer ein bisschen schade... Anna reg (talk) 22:36, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Photo challenge[edit]

I've taken your response and created two sections to see what people think. How much time do you need to upload the pictures?

If you can help with the challenge theme that would be great. I'm keen to not be the one making all the decisions! -- Colin (talk) 16:19, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I'll try to upload the pictures today, as I'm on a climbing camp for the next 4 days, where I won't have internet access. Unfortunately, that means also that I can't help a lot with the challenge themes during that time...
I tried to brainstorm a bit with my sister today and we thought that perhaps identified plants/animals in winter could be interesting/useful, if it's not too difficult (identifying plants can be helped by taking photos in a botanical garden, but I'm not sure the same can be done for animals).

February theme[edit]

Anna,

I wonder if I could ask you to take charge of organising the monthly themes for February. The community hasn't (yet) organised itself such that such decisions are made as a group consensus so you may still end up having to just make a choice from a set of suggestions. Rather than reuse the old discussion section, perhaps new ideas will be more forthcoming if a new section for February is created. I'm not sure that January's month theme has been successful enough to repeat just yet. I know that limiting submissions to pictures taken this month will also have a limiting effect, though I also hoped it would inspire people to take their camera out. I don't want the "challenge" to end up just a themed Feature Picture contest as taking new pictures is mainly what it is about. So perhaps we can try some themes with the limitation and some without over the coming months. We don't need to have just two themes for February. Having three, say, would give even more scope for each theme to be radically different in style so appeal to different people. So having said that, I'd like to leave those decisions to someone else this time. Feel free to ignore my opinion. You decide what themes (after getting suggestions in some way), how many themes, and whether to restrict any of them to photos taken that month. I'll watchlist this page so you can reply here. -- Colin (talk) 18:57, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello Colin,
That's quite a big responsibility - but not wholly surprising, as you didn't seem really comfortable with having to decide the topics for the last two months. I'm not sure I can do it for the coming months, but I'll try to coordinate February.
And you are right that a new section is needed for February, but I hope that the list of suggestions can help with the selection of future themes. Anna reg (talk) 23:01, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Anna, have you decided on some themes for February? It is disappointing there still hasn't been more engagement on the talk page, but perhaps people just want someone else to make these decisions. Maybe the solution is just to share round the responsibility for choosing themes each month? Post your thoughts on the talk page. I'm happy to set up the new submission pages unless you want to have a go. -- Colin (talk) 11:38, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
It's a bit strange that the discussion about future themes has so little participation, but I can decide the themes for February - if somebody complains, they can do it next month. ;->
I'd propose newsworthy (and therefore from 2014, as I think something featured in an article a year ago isn't really newsworthy any more...) and two of something (not sure if the second one isn't a bit two close to a bunch of stuff) - another possibility would be local food... I can set the pages up later today, but I'd be happy to let you do it if you find the time. I'll check in about two hours... (at the latest) ;-> Anna reg (talk) 21:22, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Anna. I see you've picked some good themes. Great. As far as the vote is concerned I was planning to set up the pages today but ran out of time. Tomorrow I'm busy till the evening (Going into London to see the Chinese New Year celebrations). However, setting up the voting pages wasn't trivial and I used some search/replace and macros on a text editor to transform the submission page to the voting page. Unless you are dying to do this, I'm fine to do this again tomorrow but it is up to you. I'm keen that the voting doesn't have the same problems at the start that it did last time when I screwed up. I think hiding the votes and not randomising worked well considering how manual it all is at present. I suggest you simplify the submission period to just say "February" as the extension option seemed to cause some confusion this time. I see you've set "Newsworthy" to photos taken this year. We'll have to keep an eye on submissions to check they comply -- I didn't keep such a close eye on the January ones and had to remove some quite late on, which isn't ideal. Hopefully now people are getting the idea. If we manage to set up the submissions and voting tomorrow, we can request a watchlist notification to inform everyone. I may also spam people's talk page, though I very much doubt I'll have time to do that tomorrow. One day, all this will be replaced by bots :-) -- Colin (talk) 23:26, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

I saw how you set up the voting page and I can probably do it tomorrow if necessary, but I have to do most of it manually - so no, I'm not dying to do it. ;->
Removing the may be extended if requested is easily done and probably a good idea (tomorrow, I'm too tired today) - but I'd like to hear your opinion of my examples gallery. I tried to make them quite small so that they don't disturb from the entries, but hopefully help people to understand what the challenge is about (in my opinion there were quite a few entries to 'a bunch of stuff' which didn't fit as they showed structures - making me wonder how many people looked at the links you provided... ;->).
About the time restriction for 'Newsworthy' - I thought it made sense to prevent pictures from events taking place ages ago - even though you are right that that means more things to check for each submission...
One last thing - about the next voting period - we are still using the same system as in January?
Well, I'm looking forward to seeing the first submissions... Anna reg (talk) 00:21, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
I've set up the voting pages and requested a watchlist notice. I set the deadline for voting to be Saturday 22nd. I think three weeks is long enough and it gives us a breather in between to get organised for the next one. Do you agree? I think your examples gallery is worth trying. Hopefully good entries will also encourage similar. I agree that some of the "bunch of stuff" entries don't seem to be appropriate but presumably that will reflect in voting. I'm interested to see how the Newsworthy one turns out - that should be quite a challenge. I see you requested a link to the news. We'll have to watch how people format entries and help if the markup proves too difficult. Again, the initial entries (when they come!) should help guide future ones. I plan to keep voting the same for now. We'll have a chance again at the end of Feb to reassess. -- Colin (talk) 20:43, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello Colin! Thanks for setting up the voting pages - I hope you still found time to enjoy the New Year Celebratrions... ;->
The deadline sounds fine - and it's sensible to use the January voting system once more, as I think it's a bad idea to organise something new now. But that also means that we probably should plan changes before the end of the month... concerning more or less appropriate entries I think we can be optimistic - considering the results of the December challenges I suspect that they will reflect how well the theme is illustrated.
I'm also curious about Newsworthy - we had two fitting pictures in 'coloured lights' but none since then. About the link - I'm not sure if it should be a requirement, but I think that it would help to understand which event is depicted (information I needed for the picture from the Festival of Lights in Lyon). If it's difficult to do on the submission page, we could say that providing the link in the file information is enough (as is done for the date). We will probably know more when the first pictures are submitted... Anna reg (talk) 21:31, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Dülmen, Bahnhof, Dampflokdurchfahrt -- 2011 -- 1.jpg[edit]

Hi Anna

I also wanted to understand why this image was deleted. It seems that according to Deutsche Bahn house rules, you need prior permission from station management when taking photos for commercial purposes from inside the station premises including the station platforms. Commons images may be used for commercial purposes. Permission is not necessary if you are taking them for private purposes only or if you are taking them from public property (at a distance). This particular image did not have the necessary permission uploaded with it. HelenOnline 13:16, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for showing me what you found. The rule would be comparable to a museum (also a more or less public place) not allowing photographs for commercial purposes. Okay, I think I can understand (and remember) that, even if I still can't fully comprehend why the Deutsche Bundesbahn would be unhappy about pictures made inside their train stations being used commercially (e.g. printed on t-shirts)... ;-> --Anna reg (talk) 13:32, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't seem to suggest they won't give permission though. Maybe they just want control over it for some reason? For example, if someone was filming a movie (included in the same clause) it could be quite disruptive. HelenOnline 14:07, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps they would - but it means that the photographer (or somebody else from wikipedia) has to ask for permission - and find somebody who can give that permission. And as the commons licenses look quite formidable, I can easily imagine that that person withholds permission in a better safe than sorry decision... I'm quite sure that's what happened with my picture of a Christmas tree collection place in Vienna (my January entry). Anna reg (talk) 14:20, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about that, I didn't know it was deleted. HelenOnline 15:01, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

It was deleted before the submission period finished. I tried to get the permission (and even got an informal one), but finally lost against the bureaucracy... ;-> well, I learned something. Anna reg (talk) 15:06, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

und wie weiter?[edit]

Hallo Anna, bin gerade über den von dir neu angelegten Kategoriebaum Category:Public art in Vienna by district gestolpert. Ich hoffe du sortierst die Bilder und Kategorien aus Category:Public art in Vienna zeitnah in die entsprechenden Bezirke (nach dem Verursacherprinzip). Sobald es diese Unterkategorien gibt, sollte die Oberkategorie entleert werden. Unterstützung kannst du dir auf de:Wikipedia Diskussion:Wiki Loves Public Art, besser wohl aber unter de:Portal_Diskussion:Österreich/Denkmallisten erbitten. lg --Herzi Pinki (talk) 11:01, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Für so umfangreiche Kategorisierungen kann ich dir Help:Gadget-Cat-a-lot sehr empfehlen (kann auch Kategorien, wenn frau es in den preferences so einstellt). lg --Herzi Pinki (talk) 11:40, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
Danke für die Empfehlung - und natürlich bin ich mit diesem praktischen Werkzeug am Sortieren... ;-> (es hilft nur leider nicht ganz so viel, wenn man die zuzuordnenden Kategorien alle überprüfen muss - auch wenn das 'Verwendete-Artikel-Anzeige-Werkzeug' dafür ganz praktisch ist).
Den Kategorienbaum habe ich übrigens noch eine Ebene höher neu angelegt - mit der Kategorie Vienna by district und der neuen Vorlage {{Districts of Vienna Navi}}, die wahrscheinlich noch etwas überarbeitet gehört (sie ist sehr stark an {{States of Austria Navi}} angelehnt, nachdem ich zwar Templates kopieren, aber nicht selber kreierien kann...

Wichtige Frage[edit]

Hey Anna, weißt du welche Frage sich mir gestellt hat? Ist das rote Gewinnerei etwa hier gelandet? Schöne Bilder, nicht nur die beiden! :) --Indeedous (talk) 23:46, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Danke für das Lob! Wie bist du denn auf meine Beiträge zu den verschiedenen Photowettbewerben gestoßen?
Zu deiner wichtigen Frage: Das wäre nur andersherum möglich - gebacken wird am Ostersamstag (und die Nester werden verschenkt), Eiergepeckt wird erst, nachdem die Eier für's Osterfrühstück möglichst vollständig wieder gefunden wurden (ganz egal, wie sehr der Osterhase behauptet, dass die Eier nicht schwer versteckt sind, wird doch immer wieder eins geopfert...). Ich hätte allerdings noch ein leider etwas dunkles Bild, wie das Gewinnerei zum Solei wurde... ;->
Anna reg (talk) 08:17, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Oh, ich seh jetzt erst, dass die für unterschiedliche Wettbewerbe waren. Ich war über den Osterfotowettbewerb auf deine Benutzerseite mit den schicken Bildern gestoßen. Und ich stell gerade fest, dass ich keine Ahnung von Ostern hab :D Aber klingt ziemlich logisch, erst backen, dann suchen und dann essen. Naja, ich bin und bleibe wohl ein Kulturbanause. Was mich allerdings richtig wundert, ist, dass ich nicht einmal Soleier kannte, obwohl die Berliner Küche nur wenige Kilometer von meiner langjährigen Küche entfernt ist. Dafür musste erst eine Österreicherin kommen und mir das erklären :p --Indeedous (talk) 13:19, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Hmmm, der Ausdruck Solei ist wahrscheinlich für die Form, in der wir einen guten Teil der Ostereier essen, eigentlich nicht ganz richtig - denn in Salzlake eingelegt werden sie nicht. Aber sie werden auf die gleiche Art gegessen: die Eier werden halbiert, der Dotter herausgenommen und die Mulde je nach Geschmack mit Essig, Oliven- oder Kürbiskernöl, Salz und Pfeffer gewürzt, mit dem umgedrehten Dotter zugedeckt und dann das ganze ohne zu patzen essen... ;->
Sieht so aus, als hätte sich die Bedeutung des Wortes in unserer Familie etwas verändert... muss ich wohl mal meine Großmutter genauer befragen, die ist nämlich aus Berlin. ;-> Anna reg (talk) 09:50, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Roses[edit]

Hallo, don't you have by the chance the pictures of 'Belle Bigottini' selected by Jean Laffay and 'Fanny Bias' by Jean-Pierre Vibert? It would be great to have it for illustrating the articles about those ballerinas. Fleur-de-farine 08:43, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

I fear not (as I don't think I've heard those cultivar names before). It's often difficult to find old rose cultivars... but I'll write to Pitke, who is trying to maintain a list of needed rose cultivars... out of curiousity - on which wikipedia are those articles? Anna reg (talk) 08:53, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, getting cultivars not growing on the path of a few select Flickr rose enthusiasts is quite a longshot. I'll do a plant photo trip or two this summer, just to cover some sub-arctic favourite cultivars. Beginning, of course, with our own 'New Dawn', 'Flammentanz', and 'Europeana'. With some luck I'll get my friend's 'Augusta Luise' as well. --Pitke (talk) 09:03, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Good look on your plant trip ;-> (but what do you mean with the Augusta Luise reference? hmm...)
There are two (or three) rose gardens in Vienna - which is the main reason I'm able to contribute so many pictures of rose cultivars - but they don't specialise in old cultivars... I'm thinking of making a day trip to Baden in June - it is only 50 km south of here and quite famous for it's rose garden (and we only have four pictures! ;->) but I don't think that they have those two specific French cultivars... ;-> Anna reg (talk) 09:34, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

I wish you to have a nice "plant trip" too. Hope you'll keep in mind my Bias & Bigottini. Thank you in advance! Fleur-de-farine 09:30, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, you too! Perhaps you could contact a gardening group or forum to ask for invites to private gardens? --Pitke (talk) 12:02, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Photo challenge themes[edit]

Anna reg, I apologize for not realizing that we weren't supposed to use Commons talk:Photo challenge/themes yet and thanks for fixing it. How about Commons:Photo challenge/themes? Is it OK to add suggestions there now? Nandaro (talk) 18:09, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes, of course you can edit that. The problem with the discussion page is that I copied some relevant discussions to see how that would work and editing those copied discussions creates a confusing mix with the ones on the original discussion page. In contrast the lists on Commons:Photo challenge/themes are something I created as an overview (there is a similar list of proposed challenge themes at the beginning of Commons talk:Photo challenge, but it's not complete and a mixture of suggestions and discussions).
By the way, I think that you are right that we won't be able to show all previous challenges on the main page forever - perhaps we should decide on something like presenting the last two or three months)there, while the rest is collected on another page. While it is probably also correct that a lot of the set-up discussions will fade out with time, I think that we are still far from reaching that point...
I hope I didn't create to much confusion, Anna reg (talk) 18:25, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
No, I think we are good. Thanks and have a great weekend.Face-smile.svg Nandaro (talk) 18:42, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Servus Anna, ich hatte neulich vier Vorschläge für neue themes auf die falsche Seite gepostet. Soll ich die nochmals auf der aktiven Diskussionsseite vorstellen, oder erübrigt sich das? Mich würde eh interssieren, wie du sie findest und ob Sprichwörter als themes für die Allgemeinheit überhaupt von Intersse sind. LG Lesekreis (talk) 15:04, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Lesekreis, ich hab deine Themenvorschläge gesehen und auf der Seite gar nicht schlecht aufgehoben gefunden, nachdem ich die Liste ein bisschen wie die Anfangs-Themenliste sehen/verwenden würde (die nicht mehr vollständig ist): zum Vorschlagen von Themenideen, wo der/die Zuständige schauen kann, was für Ideen andere Leute denn noch so hatten. Ich kann allerdings nicht sagen, ob die Liste tatsächlich so verwendet wird, nachdem anscheinend doch nur wenige für ein Auslagern der Themendiskussionen sind...
Zu 'von Interesse' - das find ich noch schwerer einzuschätzen... ich hab das Gefühl, dass kreativere Themen und Menschenthemen eher schwierige Themen sind (wenn man sich die Anzahlen an Kandidaten und Einreichern anschaut), aber die schwierigen Themen sind teilweise spannender... (meiner Meinung nach sind 100 Bilder für unsere Abstimmungsart schon sehr viel). Ich könnte mir deine Vorschläge also gut als eines der laufenden drei bis vier Themen vorstellen. Hilft das weiter?
Liebe Grüße, Anna reg (talk) 21:45, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Anna, vielen Dank für deine ausführliche Antwort und ja, sie hilft schon weiter ;-) Mir persönlich gefallen die "kreativeren Themen" auch viel besser. Ich lasse sie jetzt einfach mal in der Liste, wer weiß, vielleicht holt sie ja jemand da raus. Schönen Tag Lesekreis (talk) 10:51, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Photographing insects[edit]

Hi Anna, I think one needs a special macro lens for this (not on my list of priorities). Face-smile.svg HelenOnline 09:02, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

What camera do you use, Anna (your images don't have any EXIF so I can't tell)? Colin (talk) 10:37, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
Canon EOS 600D with the 'standard' lens (Canon zoom lens EF-S 18-55mm). I got it two years ago (to the day as of yesterday!) and there are still so many things I can learn in how to use it... ;-> (and I think it would be possible to make quite nice pictures of insects with my camera equipment - but those insects are so much faster than the roses I'm mainly photographing at the moment...) --Anna reg (talk) 21:13, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I don't know the Canon stuff as I have a Sony. Sony do a very cheap 30mm macro lens, which (if you get it on sale) is not much more than the cost of some extension tubes or a high-quality close-up lens adaptor. It does have a ridiculously short distance from lens to subject when at 1:1 (about an inch) which makes it hopeless for insects flying about but ok for spiders in webs and such. And is a very sharp 30mm lens too. I don't know if the other makes do something similar. The usual macro lenses are around 100mm but far more expensive for something you might not use much. I agree there is so much to learn even with basic kit. -- Colin (talk) 22:02, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
My parents gave me a gift certificate for a new lens for Christmas 2012 - but I'm very slow in deciding what I want (and at that time I was not ready for more possibilities) ;->. --Anna reg (talk) 22:23, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
I have the Canon EOS 650D and am mainly using the EF-S 18-135mm lens. The recommended macro lenses are pretty expensive and I am definitely not ready to think about buying one. HelenOnline 06:11, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Watch out keeping that gift certificate for so long. In the UK we've had many electrical and photo companies go bust and their gift certificates become worthless. -- Colin (talk) 06:58, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Have no fear - I have just a little paper my parents wrote (and drew) for me, telling me that they will pay for a lens of my choice - I'm quite sure that it won't become invalid... ;-> (perhaps 'gift certificate' isn't the correct translation, but I wasn't sure how to call it) --Anna reg (talk) 07:51, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

German translation[edit]

Hi Anna. If/when you have some time, please can you check my additional translations in Commons:Photo challenge/2014 - July - Primary colors in manmade objects and Commons:Photo challenge/2014 - July - Tools of the trade (not live yet). Danke schön Face-smile.svg HelenOnline 19:50, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Sure, I'll do it now. --Anna reg (talk) 20:59, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Much appreciated Face-smile.svg HelenOnline 07:11, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Your titles are difficult to translate. ;-> I think they are okay as they are now, but it would sound better to change Grundfarben in künstlichen Objekten to Künstliche Objekte in den Grundfarben - I'm just not sure if that doesn't also change the emphasis of the theme a bit. But your German is good! --Anna reg (talk) 09:26, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
I studied German and French about 30 years ago at school and am out of practice so now I rely on online translators and dictionaries. It is quite similar to Afrikaans which is my second language so not too difficult to understand but much harder to write complicated sentences from scratch. It is better for me to translate the other way into English. Face-smile.svg HelenOnline 09:41, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
That's normal - translating to German is also easier for me, even though I think that my English is quite good - and I still rely on online dictionaries to check my translations (to verify that the meaning of Handwerkszeug and tools of the trade is the same I finally made a google image search for both ;->).
By the way, I just saw that the first pictures are already submitted - and the converse look great! To me, that theme seems to be a summer theme with all those bright colours - which is funny, as you probably didn't have summer in mind - or did you? Anna reg (talk) 23:19, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I got the primary colours idea from the World Cup soccer (was not really watching but it was on TV). I haven't based my themes on my personal location (except for not restricting when taken) and have not had as much time as I would have liked to go out and take photographs weather permitting. I will go through what I haven't uploaded yet to see what I can use and weather permitting I will take some new photos. HelenOnline 10:24, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Are you able to translate the watchlist notice? Is there any way we can gather a group of people able to translate into the popular languages? Sorry I'm not able to help with this. -- Colin (talk) 08:03, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

I should be able to translate it into German (and French) - but where do I do that? For other languages I can look who made translations of the Photo challenge page and ask them to help. --Anna reg (talk) 08:17, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Try asking at MediaWiki talk:WatchlistNotice - that's where I made the initial request. Rillke and Steinsplitter seem to be active there so may be able to guide. I suppose if we get better organised, we can set up the watchlist request in advance, with multiple translations, (you can schedule the start/end dates) but I like to double-check the pages are all created and look ok before it goes live. -- Colin (talk) 08:48, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
@ Colin: Ok, I've posted the German and French translations on MediaWiki talk:WatchlistNotice and written to users who did translations for the photo challenge page in their languages.
Another idea - as even you forgot to vote until the end of June - perhaps we should make a second 'last chance' notice for the last two or three days of the month? Anna reg (talk) 11:24, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Categories Roses by grower and Roses by nursery[edit]

Hi, Thank you for correcting my recent uploads of rose photos. I wonder if you can explain what is the difference between [[Category:Roses by grower]] and [[Category:Roses by nursery]]. It seems that one of these would be appropriate when it is not known which of the people at a particular company was responsible for breeding a particular cultivar, so [[Category:Roses by breeder]] has no suitable entry, but what of the other of these two categories? It's a puzzle. Best wishes, Nadiatalent (talk) 12:18, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome - I appreciate you photos and that you are taking the time to understand the probably sometimes bizarre categorising system!
To answer your question - the names are probably not ideal. Category:Roses by grower is the oldest category and is still used as a main category for sorting roses by their creators (breeders and nurseries are subcategories), and is the one used if there is a name, but you don't know if it's a nursery name or the name of the breeder. Category:Roses by nursery is used if the company is known, but not the individual breeder - and the breeders are categorised in Category:Roses by breeder and the companies they work. Most of the Categories remaining in Category:Roses by grower are in fact nurseries - and were just not yet changed to Roses' by Nursery Name (with the correct nursery name - which is sometimes a bit difficult to find out/decide on). If you know the name of the breeder or the nursery you won't need it.
By the way, I normally only create categories for cultivars with three or more pictures - if there are fewer pictures, I just categorise them into the correct alphabetical category - but every cultivar gets a gallery linked from the respective Rosa cultivars by alphabet gallery.
Looking forward to more of your pictures, --Anna reg (talk) 12:55, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks very much for your reply. That's probably all the rose photos that I'll get this season, but perhaps next year I'll find myself at a garden with labelled plants, armed with a bit more skill in achieving a good depth of focus. Yes, some of the categories that I created were for cultivars where I initially thought that more than one photo would be good enough, but then rejected some. Nadiatalent (talk) 15:03, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, you did upload over hundred rose pictures. ;-> Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 23:27, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Rosa Simply Magic.jpg[edit]

Hi, yes, I mean chromatic aberrations, at the top left of the flowers there is a little purple colored fringe. With your editing software (all the softwares have something like that) you must have something to activate to delete this CA. It is certainly and simply called CA and in more you can use the tool delete the fringe (en français : supprimer la frange). -- Christian Ferrer Talk 04:39, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Photo challenge translations[edit]

Thanks for the notice, I will translate the texts. Einstein2 (talk) 12:29, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Great! And you are welcome. Anna reg (talk) 12:31, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

I did the Ukrainian translation, it still needs to be read. Thanks for organising the process. Mykola Swarnyk (talk) 06:38, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome - it was actually quite rewarding to do, as it's great to see things get done that quickly. Anna reg (talk) 12:05, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for creating the templates, it was a good idea. I did the Hungarian translations and corrected the sentences which contain the month name in both templates. There would be a better translation for the suffixed form of the months (augusztusbanin August), but I think it can't be displayed with templates because of the Hungarian suffix system, so I used a less frequent, but still meaningful version (augusztus soránduring August). Einstein2 (talk) 14:45, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Great - I feared something like that (I have a friend who studied German-Hungarian translation). There should be a possibility to make the other version work too, but I'm not that good with templates - the safer version is therefore probably better for now. --Anna reg (talk) 15:05, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Thanks, sure. I check almost every day Commons, but lately I've got no picture to upload. I'm working in a couple things right now, but as soon as I finish I'll be glad helping you. See You. --Ganímedes (talk) 13:42, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Athena et le Parlement de Vienne[edit]

Bonjour Anna reg.

J'ai vu que dans tes galerie figuraient deux photos prises par moi, sur ta page d'utilisatrice.

Je suis très honoré de ces choix, très content et fier de voir deux de mes photos sur ta première page, surtout pour illustrer Wien et Schönbrunn !!

Je te félicite d'habiter ce si beau pays, et d'étudier dans cette magnifique ville de Vienne dont je suis amoureux depuis ma visite, espérant vite y revenir (et pas seulement pour déguster une Sachertorte...). Je voulais juste te signaler que j'avais supprimé les câbles du tramway devant Athéna et le bâtiment du Parlement, je crois que c'est plus joli comme ça, même si c'est moins conforme à la réalité. J'espère que ça te convient.

Amitiés parisiennes (il pleut...)

--Jebulon (talk) 13:51, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Salut Jebulon,
merçi pour tes félicitations - moi aussi j'aime Vienne beaucoup - mais Paris est aussi une très belle ville! ;->
Et tu peux bien être fier de tes images - je les trouves vraiment bien fait. Mais bien que je trouve qu'on ne voit presque pas qu'il y avait des câbles dans l'images (on doit vraiment chercher les restes), je ne suis pas tout à fait sûre que c'est une bonne idee de télécharger une nouvelle version d'une image évaluée (dans ce cas une image de qualité) - je crois que à ta place j'aurais téléchargé la nouvelle version sous File:nom 1.jpg ou quelque chose pareille et mis un lien sous autres versions. Mais peut-être tu sais s'il y a une régulation quoi faire dans ce cas? J'ai rien trouvé quand j'ai juste essayer de le rechercher.
Amitiés viennoise (où le soleil brille), Anna reg (talk) 16:16, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Oui, tu as raison, je sais, mais j'ai été paresseux... Et puis c'est une image "à moi"...--Jebulon (talk) 16:53, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

"Géante Lockness"[edit]

Hi ! I looked in my archives and "Géante Lockness" is what is indicated by the en:Muséum de Toulouse. I asked them for confirmation, it happens that museums make mistake too ^^ Léna (talk) 20:04, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

I have to admit that I don't know anything about Rubus cultivars. I just performed a google search to confirm that what I think is a cultivar name in the image description really is - and as 'Loch Ness' seems to be a common cultivar (and lockness definitely doesn't sound French) a mistake seems plausible... So thanks a lot for trying to solve that question! Anna reg (talk) 22:27, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
According to the museum it is a cultivar and the name is really more likely to be "Loch ness". I'll rename the files and change the categories :) Léna (talk) 15:58, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
The cultivar is now added to Rubus cultivars. Thanks again, Anna reg (talk) 08:59, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

How to remove (almost) all CAs[edit]

Bonjour Anna reg, J'ai vu, en écrivant hier soir quelques mots sur la page de discussion de Christian Ferrer, que tu avais eu des soucis avec les aberrations chromatiques au début du mois. C'est un peu loin, mais il n'est peut-être pas trop tard pour bien faire. Je te conseille vivement d'utiliser Rawtherapee, logiciel léger libre et gratuit, qui permet de traiter aussi bien les fichiers Raw que les fichiers JPEG, notamment en ce qui concerne les célèbres CAs ! Dans le deuxième onglet, colonne de droite, tu utilises la sixième ligne ("Aberrations chromatiques" en français) : il y a deux variables, c'est assez facile à prendre en main. Juste au-dessus (5e ligne) tu trouves "Réduction du bruit" avec trois variables dont une appelée en français "Chrominance" : elle permet de réduire le bruit chromatique et peut parfois se combiner utilement avec "Aberrations chromatiques". Les résultats sont souvent très bons. J'espère que cette suggestion pourra t'être utile. Bien cordialmement. --JLPC (talk) 16:30, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for your advice (and I do understand French - I'm just too tired to try to write it ;->). I'll look into it as soon as I find some time (as I said, I'm interested in learning more - especially as I do know that there are better options than my old version of Corel Photo-Paint 9 ;->). Best wishes, --Anna reg (talk) 21:50, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

RfC on the scope of file renaming criterion 2[edit]

Pursuant to the closing of the RFC "Proposed overhaul of the "Which files should be renamed?" section", a second RfC has been opened at Commons:Requests for comment/File renaming criterion 2 specifically to address the scope of criterion 2, which currently reads "To change from a completely meaningless name to a name that describes what the image displays." Since you participated in the initial discussion, I am notifying you of the follow-up RfC.

Please note that I fully anticipate that the first few days will see a number of additional options proposed, so it may be a good idea to check back periodically on the RfC.

Thank you. Sven Manguard Wha? 01:43, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Once again[edit]

Dear Anna,
Hello again, when I got a new camera I went to public park, and took few test photographs
as per your advice I have added description.
once again I love your pictures of Vienna, Gleisdorf and plants
regards

@Aftabbanoori: Oh, I actually meant the file description on the filepage itself (as that can be seen no matter how you find the image) - below the link to the file description of File:Rose hybrid.jpg and as a comparison here is the description for one of my rose pictures:
Does that explain what I mean?

Great! That's exactly what I meant. Similar information would of course also be interesting for other plant files you uploaded...
All the best, --Anna reg (talk) 07:15, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Danke,[edit]

dafür, aber das Problem ist, dass die ObjektID mE falsch ist. Oder hast du gegenteilige Belege? Nach dem Titel Spruch am Eingang zur Oberstadt von Bregenz würde ich das eher beim Durchgang in die Oberstadt vermuten. [2] Aber lassen wir es mal so, ich habe Böhringer um Hilfe gebeten. lg --Herzi Pinki (talk) 20:31, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Nein, Belege hab ich keine - ich hab mir nur das das Bild angeschaut und festgestellt, dass es immerhin einen Bogen mit ähnlichen Steinstücken hat, auf denen etwas draufstehen könnte. Der Name deutet eher auf einen Stadteingang (also vielleicht 21703) - aber ich kann auf den Bildern nur eine andere Inschrift finden und damit nicht sicher sagen, ob das Stadtmotto (das anscheinend mehrmals zu finden ist - in der Kategorie ist eine Wandbeschriftung) sicher dort zu finden ist. Ich glaub, ich seh gerade, warum du dich so nicht über den Detail-Schwerpunkt freust... ;->
