Bandy[edit]

Please notice many of your bandy photographies are placed in the wrong orientation. J 1982 (talk) 01:20, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes thanks, I know. It is not my fault, it's a problem with Commons after the upload of the newest MediaWiki. There's supposed to be a template to turn them round. And it's supposed to be turned around automatically after a few days by a specific Bot. Bjoertvedt (talk) 01:32, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Geranium images[edit]

Hi, you uploaded File:Geranium bohemicum 01.jpg and File:Geranium bohemicum 02.jpg as the rare species Geranium bohemicum. In my opinion, both is Geranium sylvaticum which is a common species in Northern Europe. Please, compare with photos in the following pages: [1], [2]. Differences are in the shape (and size) of petals and in the contrasting color of nerves on the petals. Regards --Franz Xaver (talk) 14:37, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

based on geographic distribution data, I agree. I remember the field trip, and I remember certainly that I checked size, leaves etc carefully and found it not to resemble G sylvaticum. But it could have been individual modifications or variances that played me a trick. I am not against renaming. Kind regards, Bjoertvedt (talk) 16:25, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer. Now I changed description and categories. I also removed the first photo from several wikipedia articles on Geranium bohemicum. I did not rename files, as File:Geranium sylvaticum 01.jpg and File:Geranium sylvaticum 02.jpg already exist. Regards --Franz Xaver (talk) 15:24, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

File:Longyearbyen Gruve 1 cemetary.jpg[edit]

Great image! Thanks! --Gampe (talk) 07:20, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Well, yes I believe this to be me best shot ever. It is taken at 400 meters distance on free hand, so it was an instance of great luck. Thank you very much!! Bjoertvedt (talk) 16:26, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Kategorier[edit]

Hei Erlend! Kan du legge bildene fra Svalbard i riktig kategori når du laster dem opp? Alle kulturminnekategoriene for Norge (Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Norway) har egne underkategorier for hver kommune, men når det gjelder Svalbard skal bildene i Category:Cultural heritage monuments at Svalbard. Mange fine bilder du har lastet opp! Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 10:52, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Lavetthuset på Hovedøya[edit]

Hei Erlend! Du har bl.a. lastet opp flere bilder av Lavetthuset i forbindelse med WLM og satt på lok.id. med nummer 115850, slik som f.eks. på dette bildet http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Oslo_Hoved%C3%B6ya_lavett_IMG_8776_rk_115850.JPG Men det id.nummeret går til et skipsvrak som ikke kan sees over vann. Jeg har gjort utvidet søk i kulturminnebasen og kan ikke finne Lavetthuset oppført der. Vet du noe mer om dette? Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 15:28, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Hei! Nei, jeg vet ikke mer om det - jeg har bare brukt kart og ikke liste, og da får man ikke med seg at det er f.eks "skipsvrak". De har helt sikkert rett og i så fall bør det stå uten ID-nummer fra RAK. Men huset er fra 16-1700-tallet, så det er vel en del av den høye terskelen vår at ingen av byggene på Hovedøya er kulturminne. Kanskje vi skal utvide begrepet litt neste gang, tror det virker begrensende på mange at så "få" objekter faktisk er med på lista. Mvh, Bjoertvedt (talk) 15:38, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Double images[edit]

Hi, I saw that you uploaded some images twice, with different names: for example File:Ny Aalesund IMG 6490.JPG and File:Ny-Aalesund IMG 6490.JPG, or File:Ny-Aalesund Amundsen villa IMG 6478.JPG and File:Ny Aalesund Roald Amundsen villa IMG 6478.JPG. Could check all your photos in Ny-Alesund and mark for deletion the wrong ones? Thanks :-) bye. --Superchilum(talk to me!) 13:03, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi1 I do not have the total overview, but I can assure that if there are double sets then they will be totally similar, and there is no "right" or "wrong" ones. So if you come over doubles, it is just to delete instantly one of them without any objection from my side. 83.109.105.183 15:42, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

please, choose :-)

--Superchilum(talk to me!) 08:25, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Wow! It seems that the b's are of somewhat higher light quallity, and they have a common denomination as "Ny Ålesund". Is it possible to keep them and delete the rest? Thx, Bjoertvedt (talk) 18:18, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Morse keys[edit]

Hi, I am strongly assuming that you mixed up the text of two uploaded pictures, File:Morse key n jacobsen mek verksted 1935 IMG 3776 telenor bergen.JPG and File:Vibroplex morse key 1940-50s IMG 3774 telenor bergen.JPG. The key with the grey metal base is the Vibroplex. --Cqdx (talk) 17:35, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

might be. I am 100% sure that the explanation cards were thus placed, but they might have been switched around. The name "Vibrople" is certainly visible at the plate of the grey one! Is it possible to have the names changed, aswell? BR, Bjoertvedt (talk) 18:58, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
Then the exhibition confused the cards. Jacobsen was a Norwegian manufacturer of telegraph keys ([3]), Vibroplex is American, famous for the pendulum, which generates dots automatically, and still in buiness ([4]). For renaming in Commons, I suggest to use Template:Rename --Cqdx (talk) 19:56, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Muuga.jpg). I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

http://www.freeenglishsite.com/

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

Thank you so much for your email and the credit! My photos are all free to be used by everyone! Good luck in your further work... Bjoertvedt (talk) 09:43, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Some plant IDs[edit]

Dear Bjoertvedt,

I changed the ID of the following images from Category:Succisa pratensis to Category:Knautia arvensis, because Succisa pratensis has blue, rather symmetrical flowers that are not so much different in size (see e.g. File:SuccisaPratensis2.jpg). Apparently there is no other species of Knautia in Norway, at least according to the rather old Flora Europaea. So this should be Knautia arvensis:

Thanks, you've been quite right about this one! Is is a bit strange that I have confused these ones since I have myself used one of them in the norwegian article on Knautia arvensis.... Kind regards, Bjoertvedt (talk) 17:14, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

These three images show Kalmia procumbens (sometimes called Loiseleuria procumbens), not Saxifraga oppositifolia:

I corrected the categories, but I have not attempted to have these images renamed.

Thankls alot, these ones are also misplaced by me. They are what we call "greplyng". Kind regards, Bjoertvedt (talk) 17:20, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

I also found a few photographs, which were supposed to show Saxifraga aizoides, which is obviously not the case; I suggest that they show some plant from the Brassicaceae family (with 4 petals instead of the usual 5 for Saxifraga aizoides, just for example!), possibly a Draba species. Unfortunately there seems to be quite a number of species from this genus in the area - and I do not even know whether the genus is right. These are the misidentified flower pictures:

It might be best to move these to Category:Unidentified Brassicaceae and correct the descriptions accordingly. Best regards --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 23:59, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

These are another two plant photographs with a wrong ID:

These cannot be Rhodiola rosea, because they have got 5 petals per flower instead of 4 for Rhodiola rosea. This might be Phedimus kamtschaticus or a related similar species. --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 11:41, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Actually, they are Phedimus hybridus. Bjoertvedt (talk) 03:05, 29 December 2012 (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

Hva viser bildene?[edit]

Hei Erlend! Kan du ta en titt på to bilder du lastet opp til WLM? Det gjelder http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ringebu_IMG_3048.JPG og http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ringebu_IMG_3049.JPG Bildene heter Ringebu og under står det: Nybyen vannforsyningsanlegg, Nybyen, Longyearbyen, Svalbard. Om man klikker på bildet for å få det i større format kan man se at det står Kaupanger på skiltet og Landsbyen Ringebu på flaggene, så det er sikkert i Ringebu. Vet du hvilken bygning det er? Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 10:13, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Uff, her har det blitt litt "klipp og lim". Har retta opp teksten nå. Men det rare er at dette er den største, mest staselige bygningen i hele Ringebu - men det framgår ikke på bygningen hva den har vært brukt til. Den står liksom bare der... Bjoertvedt (talk) 19:00, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Kommunekategorier[edit]

Hei! Hver kommune har egen kategori, bilder fra Oslo skal derfor i kategorien Cultural heritage monuments in Oslo og ikke Cultural heritage monuments in Norway. ;-) Så mange fine bilder det har kommet allerede! Gøy! Ha en fin søndag! Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 13:21, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Uff ja, det glemmer jeg visst for hver gang.... Fin solrik søndag - og takk for tipset... ;-) Bjoertvedt (talk) 13:24, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
Hei. Ser du har satt inn Cultural heritage monuments in Oslo igjen på filer jeg har fjernet det og hvor det er føyet til i kategorien. Vær så snill å ikke gjør det; jeg har fjernet hundrevis på bildene dine de siste dagene. Altså; når f.eks. Ørakerbråten har egen kategori skal Cultural heritage monuments in Oslo bare stå på kategorien og ikke under hvert enkelt bilde. Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 21:05, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Aha - skjønner! Da skal jeg fjerne dem, og passé på. Takk for all god hjelp! Bjoertvedt (talk) 22:24, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Filen mangler[edit]

Hei! Takk for hyggelig fotosafari i dag! Du, filen mangler her: File:Gr%C3%B6nland_Nordbygt_48_rk_164503_IMG_8331.JPG Du kan enten laste den opp på nytt eller jeg kan be om hurtigsletting. Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 20:42, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Tusen takk - jeg fikk beskjed om at den var lastet opp fra før av, da tror jeg det er Commons som bug'er og ser på selve opplastingen som en "tidligere"... Skal ta den opp igjen! Gleder meg til å se fangsten av helleristninger!! ;.-) Bjoertvedt (talk) 20:49, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
Ikke mulig å laste den opp. Får beskjed om at den fins, men det gjør den vel ikke... ;.) Bjoertvedt (talk) 20:51, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Oslo bispegård[edit]

Jeg ser du har kategorisert dine bilder fra Oslo bispegård/Oslo gamle bispegård i Category:Bispegaarden. Denne kategorier gjelder bispegården i Kalundborg. Jeg går ut i fra at noen av bildene hører hjemme i Category:Oslo Ladegård, men jeg er usikker på om det gjelder alle (det er flere katalognumre i Riksantikvarens kulturminnebase ute og går her). Kan du ta en titt på det? - mvh 4ing (talk) 08:01, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Da trenger vi ny kategori. Oslo Ladegård er et annet bygg på et annet sted. Bjoertvedt (talk) 19:56, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
Anne Sophie har ordnet opp, se Category:Bispegården, Oslo :-) 4ing (talk) 20:31, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
Anne Sophie er en helt!  ;-) Bjoertvedt (talk) 20:41, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Category:Pages using Information template with syntax errors[edit]

Hi Bjoertvedt. Could you please clean up your uploads as I did here? --Leyo 16:35, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

I am sorry but I do not understand your question. I have used the Wizard and any lack of such vital tags is quite surprising to me. How many files is this applying to, I do not know, When you say "clean up your uploads", there is a difficulty when I have well above 12.000 "uploads". Though I have never seen on any of them that such important data like "source" and "author" are missing. Could you explain how this might have come about? 84.208.189.220 17:11, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
You successfully fixed one. In the above category, there are more. Their file name starts with “Dovre” or “Hjerkinn”. --Leyo 21:58, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm. That one only had the same tag twice. I went through 10-15 files and none had any tags missing, and all had the source and author tags. Would be better if you could point to some of them , it is hard to look for the needle in the hay stack... ;-) Bjoertvedt (talk) 22:52, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
Just search for the keywords “Dovre” and “Hjerkinn” in the category mentioned above. --Leyo 10:20, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion.

Thank you.

Could it be that the license info got lost when Rotatebot changed it? I might of course be mistaken, but I rarely miss adding license to my photo. I took this one myself, yes. Bjoertvedt (talk) 18:19, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Rotated photos[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you have uploaded a few photos from Liseberg, and that some of them are not correctly rotated:

Also, I see that some of your other photos are rotated as well:

Images should be rotated before uploaded to Commons.

Also, you might give your photos better names and categories. All your photos from Liseberg are placed in the category Liseberg, although there are categories for every ride at Liseberg. -abbedabbdisk 15:15, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi abbedabb. Actually, I rotated all these images before uploading. It is the upload by Wizard that sometimes ignores the rotation, or destroys it. The right thing to do is to "request rotation", and everyone can do that for photos, even if they did not take the photos themselves. The introduction of the feature "request rotation" was done because Wizard often ignores rotation and presents rotated images as if they weren't originally rotated by the uploader. In the following, you can take it for granted that I always rotate my photos before upload, I don't think I have ever forgotten that. The best contribution for others will be to "request rotation" for an image if I didn't remember to request it. Thanks! Bjoertvedt (talk) 14:42, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Tower, MN home photo[edit]

You have uploaded this image from Tower, Minnesota. It sure does look like the John and Helen Stefanich family home to me--though I have not seen it in years and could well be wrong. Do you have any connection to the photo? Thanks.

Hi and thanks for your question. I don't know the owners, just wanted to shoot this photo as a representative of the typical building style and livelihood of these small towns of MN. It is a nice house and a typical Tower home! BR, Bjoertvedt (talk) 15:45, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments är på gång igen![edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

This is an invitation to participate in the Swedish part of the Wiki Loves Monuments competition. You are getting it since you participated in 2013. The message below is in Swedish, should this be an issue you can get more information in English here or drop a message on my talk page.

Hej Bjoertvedt,
I september genomför vi fototävlingen Wiki Loves Monuments igen.

I år har vi till den svenska deltävlingen lagt till ytterligare en kategori med objekt du kan fotografera, nämligen arbetslivsmuseum. Vi har även passat på att förtydliga instruktionerna för hur man deltar. För mer information se tävlingens hemsida.

Det finns gott om fina priser och tio av bilderna går vidare till den internationella finalen. Så varför inte delta i år igen!

Vänliga hälsningar,
Arrangörerna av Wiki Loves Monuments i Sverige

Foto uppladdat till Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 i Sverige[edit]

Hej Erlend

Ditt foto C J Carlsons handelshus uppladdat till årets Wiki Loves Monuments i Sverige saknar id-nummer från Riksantikvarieämbetets bebyggelseregister - BeBR.

Jag kan inte hitta C J Carlsons handelshus i bebyggelseregistret - har du något ID-nummer? För att fotot skall kunna delta i tävlingen krävs då det gäller byggnadsminnen att det avbildade objektet finns i Riksantikvarieämbetets bebyggelseregister.

Med vänlig hälsning

Stefan Elfving (WMSE) (talk) 12:10, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia Sverige

Neeeej, det har det inte. I Norge gör vi så där att man kan lasta upp också dom inte-registrerade kulturminnerna under WLM, men dom deltar inte i juryns bedömning. På det sättet får man inn också bilder af kulturminnen som för tilfellet inte står i Riksantikvariens databas, men som fortfarande kan betecknas som ett kulturminne. Men dom bilderna kan altså inte premieras. Hur ni gör det i Sverige bedömmar ni själve, och jag vill fölge dom reglarna ni har.
Bästa hälsningar
Bjoertvedt (talk) 12:30, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

I enlighet med våra regler har jag då tagit bort fotot som deltagare i den svenska deltävlingen i WLM. Hälsningar Stefan Elfving (WMSE) (talk) 11:29, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
