Identification question[edit]

Hi, How did you identified this dolphin to Tursiops autralis rather tahn Tursiops truncatus in this diff ? Mirgolth (talk) 12:39, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello, if it was in Port Phillip as stated, then it is an australis; otherwise a bit difficult to tell from a pic like this Crusoe8181 (talk) 04:28, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
But isn't Port Phillip in Tursiops truncatus repartition area too ? Mirgolth (talk) 15:01, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Only the one resident population in Port Phillip- here for instance and the ones along Tasmania, most of Victoria and SA coasts likewise so no crossover nearby Crusoe8181 (talk) 03:41, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the details ! Mirgolth (talk) 14:31, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Crusoe8181!

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.

Federation Ribbon[edit]

Hi Crusoe8181, I'm interested in the pic of the Federation Ribbon that you posted (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Australia_Federation_Ribbon2.jpg). Do you have the actual original ribbon in your own collection? I'm doing some research on early Australian symbols and flags and would love to know a bit more about it. Cheers, Helen

Hi Crusoe8181, I'm still really keen to find out a bit more about your federation ribbon - specifically, I'd like to know whether you'd be willing to loan it to us for a major exhibition here in Melbourne. Would you be able to drop me a line? Many thanks! Helen
