Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Baboons on rock.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|cc-by-sa-2.5}} to release it under the Creative Commons or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

Kilimanjaro[edit]

Regarding Image:Kilimanjaro-from-the-air.JPG, it would be helpful (to some readers) it you could add the view direction to the description. Thank you. --Wsiegmund 15:45, 10 November 2006 (UTC)


Nice picture of the Kilimanjaro. I've climbed it last summer and want this photo printed at high resolution. Can you mail this picture to me? andre@doeje.nl

BBC using your image[edit]

Thought you might be interested to know that BBC News have run an article about the Great Bear Rainforest and used your photo Image:Grizzly-cub.jpg. They have credited "Charles J Sharp, Wikipedia" in the alt text, but have not complied with the GFDL or the CC-BY-2.5, becuase the terms are not stated to make people aware that further distribution is permissible. 17:28, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Charlesjsharp!

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.

Thank You for the Wikipedia Pictures[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 pictures (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Saqqara_pyramid.jpg and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Male_Galápagos_red-footed_booby.jpg and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Galápagos_tortoise_Santa_Cruz.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

Hi Charles - I'm just checking that it would be ok to use your great photo of the Step Pyramid (and camel!) in a book that I am currently writing on ancient Egypt. I will of course acknowledge you in the book.

Yours Sincerely,

Julian Heath

P.S. You can email me at clynnog1@liv.ac.uk or jmheath@fsmail.net

All the Best,

Julian

Glass frog[edit]

Hi Charlesjsharp, how are you? I saw that you id the frog of this image File:Fleischmann's glass frog.JPG as Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni again. I am pretty sure it is not a glass frog: check the toepads, the eye, the eardrum, and most glass frogs are also green. You can compare it with the other pictures in the category. If you have any pic from the belly you could double check it, as Hyalinobatrachium have a completely see-through venter. This frog is a member of the treefrog family Hylidae, quite likely in the genus Hypsiboas, but I don't know too much about the Costa Rican frogs to be able to tell you the species. Regards. --Erfil (talk) 20:20, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet[edit]

Hi Charles,

Your photo of Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet, as used on the main Wikipedia page for the species, is in fact some kind of elaenia species, and NOT a Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet. I've removed it from the Wikipedia page twice now, but it would really help if you would rename it or remove it from Wiki Commons, so that someone doesn't go back and add it a third time.

Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet is a species I am extremely familiar with, from my job as a full-time birding guide in Southeast Arizona. They are very distinctive, having a short and unusually stout bill for a flycatcher, with an obvious orange-pink base, as well as many other plumage differences from the bird in your photo. I can't tell you which elaenia species is in your photo, however.

Here's a good example of a Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet: http://www.briansmallphoto.com/images/Northern-Beardless-Tyrannulet_T0B65080.jpg

Best wishes, Richard Fray (www.arizonabirder.com) will do Richard. Thanks.

Hi Charlesjsharp, sorry, but I had to revert your speedy-tag, as this image is in use on 1 project. You need to file a regular DR, not a speedy. Besides, what's wrong with this shot? --Túrelio (talk) 09:21, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

move request for File:Northern beardless tyrannulet flycatcher.JPG[edit]

You wanted the name changed, but haven't suggested a new name. I've made up a name and made a move request. Rybec (talk) 21:48, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Tip on categories[edit]

Hi Charles - when adding categories, it is standard practice just to add the single most relevant category, and not parent categories of it; thus e.g. File:Grey heron in flight (ardea cinerea).jpg should be in Category:Ardea cinerea (flight), but not also in its successive parent categories Category:Ardea cinerea and Category:Ardea. See COM:OVERCAT for more details. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 22:55, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Charles - thanks! I've done most of your bird pics and one or two of the others (and some have also been done by other editors), so it's mainly to note for new uploads; no harm in checking through your old pics just in case any have been missed, but it isn't hugely important. A nice set of pics, by the way! - MPF (talk) 15:04, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
