Thanks for uploading Image:Makhtesh_gadol.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 the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one.

Image:ISS_configuration_sep-2006_he.svg[edit]

Hello! Thanx for translating the image,

  • but the Hebrew version now looks very mixed up. Are sure, that you saved it correctly? The headline and captions are somewhere out of sight, for example. And I don't see hebrew at all but that might be, because of my local system here.
  • Second thing: You put two licenses on it. GNU and CC. I uploaded the files as public domain. I don't think, you can put two more restricted licenses on it, as it was "just" a translation and no independent work.

Greetings! --Enricopedia 17:42, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi Enrico. Thank you very much for your great drawing. I didn't think GNU and CC was restrictive, but I guess you are right. That's just the default license I put on everything I upload. How can I change it? About the Hebrew bit - I wanted to ask the same thing. I used Inkscape, and the hebrew looked fine there. Somehow when I open it in FF or upload it, things get messed up. The preview wikimedia generates doesn't show hebrew at all, and the title isn't visible (:-?) Is there some other editor you know which might be better? 85.130.142.84 18:27, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Thank you! :) You can change the license by editing the image description page, remove the {{self2|GFDL|cc-by-sa-2.5,2.0,1.0}} tag and put {{PD-self}} or {{PD-user|Benherz}} instead. I don't think there is a better editor for SVG than Inkscape but I heard about a SVG plugin for Adobe Illustrator. If you have that, you might try it with the plugin. Anyway Inkscape should work too: When you are finished with the translation and everything looks fine, you might unselect all objects and hit Fit to selection in Inkscape under File, Document settings (I don't know if the translation is right since I have it in German). This might fix the lineup problems, because it resizes the page to the correct dimensions. But still I don't know about the Hebrew language. I will try searching for more information and tell you if I find anything. --Enricopedia 19:29, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
I downloaded your translated file and played around with the text alignment. Finally I solved the problem with the alignment, so the image looks good now. I still don't really know what happened but on some text the alignment had to be changed from left to right or the other way around. Now the position of some text looks ugly in Inkscape but in Firefox it is good. :)
In detail: Firefox uses the left corner of the text as position anchor but sometimes that point was meant to be the end of the text. So the text is shifted by its own length.
Maybe you can ask in your Commons:המזנון (however that is pronounced ;) ) if more people have this problem with Hebrew text alignment in SVG.
The Wiki's preview function for this file still doesn't work but I guess that is a Wiki software problem.

שלום! according to the comments above I understand that you speak Hebrew but just in case you don't, I just wanted to thank you for making the middle part of copyright.svg transparent. ;) Yonatanh 06:39, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

הי. אני w:he:משתמש:קומולוס. Benherz 07:06, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

היי, תוכל לכתוב את המקור בוויקיפדיה האנגלית לתמונות שהעתקת משם (זאת אומרת לינק ישיר לתמונה המקורית בוויקיפדיה האנגלית)? תודה, Yonatan talk 16:32, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
ואתה יכול בבקשה גם לבקש מחבר שלך שצילם את התמונה Image:Makhtesh gadol.jpg לשלוח אימייל ל- permissions-commons@wikimedia.org שנותן אישור שהוא שחרר את התמונה תחת CC-BY-SA. סיבוכים, סיבוכים. ;) Yonatan talk 16:43, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
ביקשתי מהחבר לשלוח את המייל. לגבי התמונה מאנגלית: תסתכל image:CS30.jpg ותגיד לי אם זה מה שאתה מתכוון או שיש דרך יותר אלגנטית לעשות את זה? אחרי שתאשר אשים את התבנית של {{הועבר לקומונס}} על התמונה בויקי האנגלית. איך קוראים לה, ד"א? Benherz 20:22, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
תסתכל על השינויים שערכית בImage:CS30.jpg, כמובן שלא הכרחי כל המידע אבל העיקר זה שיהיה לינק לדף המקורי בוויקיפדיה האנגלית ושם המשתמש שהעלה את התמונה לשם (למרות שלא חייבים את זה במקרה של PD). התבנית בוויקיפדיה האנגלית היא {{subst:ncd}} ואם בחרת שם קובץ חדש אז מוסיפים |שם_קובץ_חדש.JPG. דרך אגב, אני ממליץ להשתמש בCommonsHelper, כלי מאוד שימושי בהעברת קבצים מוויקיפדיה אחת לשנייה. עוד דבר, שמחים פה על כל תיאור של תמונה שמוסיפים בעברית ומומלץ לשים תמונות שמעלים בקטגוריות.

Image:Chava Alberstein tight composition.jpg[edit]

Benherz, I cannot find the source of Image:Chava Alberstein tight composition.jpg. I tried searching on Flickr but was unable to find the exact image. You may know that the source of a previously published image is necessary to verify the copyright status of the image. Would you be able to provide a source? Thanks, Iamunknown 04:15, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Never mind, another editor found the source! Cheers, Iamunknown 03:35, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Image:Sashakhenin.jpg[edit]

Hi, you marked Image:Sashakhenin.jpg for deletion saying: "I'd like to replace this with a cropped version showing only the face, seems more useful. Benherz 19:32, 27 September 2006 (UTC)" -- did you ever create the cropped version? Do you still want this file deleted? It is sitting in "Incomplete deletion requests", and is NOT considered for deletion at the moment. Regards, Deadstar 09:16, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, this image is no longer used on he-wikipedia. This was one of my first edits, and I wasn't very familiar with commons protocol. You can either delete it or crop it and upload a new version, I don't mind much. Thank you for your attention. If you want me to remove the tag, that's fine too, just tell me. Benherz 19:58, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
Hi, if you can remove the tag, that's fine - if someone in the future needs a better cropped version, it can be done at that time I'd say. Thanks for your help. Regards, Deadstar 08:10, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

File:Jerusalem_oldcity_hebrew.svg[edit]

Hi, Cumulus. On the English Wikipedia, your map has been translated and I asked why the Hulda Gates aren't on the gates map. We eventually found you as the map maker. Do the Hulda Gates belong on your (very useful) map? Since your orginal map is in Hebrew so we don't know the original intent. Jason Quinn (talk) 20:44, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

That's a very good question. First, I only traced the map into SVG from a raster original made by someone else (don't remember). Secondly, the Hebrew article about the Hulda gates says (though there's a "citation needed" next to it) that according to modern research, the location of the gates is unclear and they're not the ones shown in the photos. Interesting. I'll ask on of our Jerusalem experts, w:he:user:תמרה about it. I'll let you know. Cumulus (talk) 07:58, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
