Loactor maps for Sudan[edit]

hi Bkell ... i have seen your Loactor maps for Sudan Cities ... can you add the federal-state-borders, so it is difficult to sort a city to a federal-state? Sven-steffen arndt 17:17, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

i've thought about it ... better leave it simpel ... cheers Sven-steffen arndt 21:05, 21 May 2006 (UTC)
see my discussion ... Sven-steffen arndt 14:30, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
sorry, but you have to clear the triangles (Halaib, Ilemi) out of the territory of sudan ... so your maps are wrong, see en:Hala'ib Triangle and en:Ilemi Triangle ... cheers Sven-steffen arndt 11:31, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
i have created Image:Meroe locator map.svg to show the right borderline ... Sven-steffen arndt 17:25, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Freedom of panorama[edit]

I'm no expert. It seems unbelievable, but apparently it might be true :-( William Avery 11:09, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Watermark Image:Adler fg01.jpg[edit]

Please explain the procedure. I have to change the images or use a former version without watermark. Next I have to open the Commons webpage with the demanded image, using the link "Eine neue Version dieser Datei hochladen" (Downloading a new version of this data file) under "File History". The template box "This image contains digital watermarking or credits ..." suggests to replace itself by the following term: "superseded|Image:Mount Everest - no watermark.jpg|image without watermarks". Now I got your note "an image cannot be superseded by itself". What does it mean? I know that Wikipedia Commons isn't able to offer an easy instruction book for all cases, but more common actions should be explained for newcomers. Thank you very much. --Dysmachus 09:57, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Good work on activation energy diagram[edit]

Bkell, good work on making that activation energy diagram, I was about to start working to make one today, but then when I checked the status of the activation energy page I saw yours. Nice work! --4.158.78.91 23:18, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Image:Resolution chart.svg[edit]

Hi Bkell, thanks for your help with the Image:Resolution chart.svg file. The text looks much better now.

I've noticed a mistake I made in the original, but since I can't edit .svg, I wonder if you could fix it for me. The cyan box that says "Broadcast NTSC" is too small horizontally: The number above it should be 475, not 440. Just that one line needs to be moved a few pixels to the right. Thanks!

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, Bkell!

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.

JPG -> PNG[edit]

There is currently a bot in development to convert JPG files into PNG files automatically if appropriate. The code is not finished yet and we need the file history for referenze possibly. Therefore I reverted your edit. https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File%3AOMSYMBOL.jpg&diff=92213176&oldid=92141466 . I hope this is ok. I will try to keep in mind to inform you as soon as the bot is ready to run. --McZusatz (talk) 11:04, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

I see. I didn't understand why the template had been commented out, but now I know. Thanks for the explanation. —Bkell (talk) 11:46, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. --McZusatz (talk) 11:04, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. —Bkell (talk) 11:45, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
