Please contact me via my talk page on wikinews, I am not an active commoner. --Brianmc 21:14, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

I would like to encourage Commons admins to use Magnus' ExCommons tool where I may have uploaded sets of media from which some are in-use on Wikinews articles. Such can, in most cases, be considered part of my Reporter's notes.
Where, as I have experienced, unused images may fall outwith an individual admin's understanding of Commons project scope, that may not be the case for future use on Wikinews.
I'm happy to have these as galleries under my userpage on Wikinews, as-opposed to seeing them lost. Obviously that would not apply were I to in-error upload sub-30Kb thumbnails (has happened).


Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Wikimedia Commons has a specific scope[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. Your image or other content, File:Hopetoun Cres Gdn, Edinburgh 014.jpg, was recently deleted, or will soon be deleted, in accordance with our process and policies, because it was not, or is not, within our scope. Please review our project scope, but in short, Commons is targeted at educational media files including photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text and video clips. The expression “educational” is to be understood according to its broad meaning of “providing knowledge; instructional or informative”. Wikimedia Commons does not contain text articles like encyclopedia articles, textbooks, news, word definitions and such. Each of these other kinds of content have their own projects: Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikinews, Wiktionary and Wikiquote.

If the content seems to fit the scope of one of those other projects, please consider contributing it there. Otherwise, consider an alternative outlet. If you think that the deletion was in error because the contribution really was in scope, you can appeal it at Commons:Undeletion requests, giving a reason why it fits our scope to help others evaluate the matter. Thank you for your understanding.

and also File:Hopetoun Cres Gdn, Edinburgh 015.jpg. These two are extremely blurry and can't be used. Vera (talk) 01:55, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Apologies if some of the photos were blurry, but I'd dispute that they are outwith project scope. The images are taken from a major street in a w:World Heritage Site. --Brian McNeil / talk 09:40, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
It's not a big deal, but you've made other pictures of the same park that are fine and these two just where way too blurry to be usefull. --Vera (talk) 13:59, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I think I'd, most likely, the camera on the wrong setting. As you say, it's no big deal as there are others. What's interesting about that park is it is all that remains of the original site of Edinburgh's Botanic Gardens. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:28, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

  • /me dances! Vera, thanks! But, since I'm "allegedly" the interim liasion between Wikimedia UK and Museums, Galleries Scotland it's what I — personally — feel is a tad delow what I could do. --Brian McNeil / talk 14:51, 8 May 2012 (UTC)`

I think this could use an update with the new Wikivoyage logo. Thanks! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 19:49, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

  • I agree, but I've about 100 media files (including video which needs converted) to upload. --Brian McNeil / talk 14:25, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Edinburgh Bedroom Tax Protest[edit]

Thanks for uploading the photos in Category:Edinburgh_Bedroom_Tax_Protest,_March_30_2013. Some of the pictures (filenames starting with T-) are 160x120 thumbnail images. Please upload the full versions if you can, such tiny images are at risk of being deleted. Thanks, moogsi (blah) 14:43, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

  • If I've missed them, I'll get them later. The thumbnails ended up all mixed-in with the rest. --Brian McNeil / talk 15:09, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks, I just deleted the duplicates, the Ts left in there don't have a full-size version. Also, some Fs are miniature as well:

  • Thanks for the tidy-up. I'm well-pleased with quite a few of the photos in that lot.
Would love to see a few Commoners look at doing photoessay-type contributions for Wikinews; here's the article done to use the photos. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:17, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
