not own work?
Hi DenesFeri, if I understand your description correctly, then File:Vitis vinifera - 20120829.jpg, File:Asterales - Cichorium intybus - 20120831.jpg and File:Cat from Transylvania - 20120831.jpg are not your own work, but by "Emőke Dénes", right? Then, you need to provide his or her permission to email@example.com (OTRS). --Túrelio (talk) 08:52, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
- Hi Túrelio,
- Emőke Dénes is my sister. She made this pictures so I could uploaded here, in Commons. It is writen in every picture: kindly granted by the author. Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 08:57, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks. Nevertheless, our policy in such a situation (uploader is not the author) requires a direct confirmation from the author. It's not that I wouldn't believe you, but it's simply our policy. As you seem to upload a lot of images from your sister and she being your sister, she might agree to give you a "blanket" permission for your uploads of her images. Please look at Commons:OTRS for some background information and for a ready-made permission template. It seems we don't have it in Hungarian, though in several other languages. Please copy and edit the boxed permission template from OTRS and where it says "SPECIFY THE WORK HERE .." add a list of the filenames of all images from your sister. If she is willing, she might then add something like "and any further uploads of my images by my brother Feri". At the bottom, where it says "SENDER'S NAME ..." you or she should write her full name and city (remember the content of theis permission mail will not be published). Finally she should email it to firstname.lastname@example.org . You do not need to do this today, but within the next weeks would be nice. --Túrelio (talk) 09:08, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
- Sure. If you don't plan to continuously upload images from your sister (congrats to her nice images!), then just finish this series and thereafter care about the permission. --Túrelio (talk) 09:15, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
- I am not sure to understand you. Is this a question? O.k., if all your uploads are and will be coming from your sister, then a "blanket" permission, as described above, from your sister would be the best solution. OTRS will then issue an OTRS ticket, which you can then put to all your past and future uploads and everything is fine. Besides, as images with discrepant author/uploader name sometimes confuse re-users and lead to wrong attribution, you might consider adding your sister's name to the license template, such as I have done now with File:Octopus vulgaris - Madeira.jpg. See, whether you like it, otherwise you can revert it. --Túrelio (talk) 09:35, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
- Exactly. Of course, you should talk to your sister about this, it's actually her choice, as she is the author. --Túrelio (talk) 09:48, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
- Well, you can find a contact link on my userpage User:Túrelio in the tool box. However, as I am rather busy with my admin work and in RL, I would prefer if you would explain to your sister the permission thing and the attribution thing (rather easy). Both things are not urgent. Besides, I don't speak a word Hungarian. --Túrelio (talk) 10:31, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
- Then activate email contact in your user settings, as I don't like to publicly post my email address. --Túrelio (talk) 10:48, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
I discovered today that The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families does not contain Pteridopsida species. How come a site like this, doesn't have them? Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 10:29, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
- WCL is a work in progress and it does not contain all plants. To my knowledge, there is no global list of these plants. But you can consult different floras and specialized sites as for example:
Thank you! DenesFeri (talk) 08:04, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Senecio erucifolius vs. Jacobaea erucifolia
According to the The Global Compositae Checklist  Senecio erucifolius  and Jacobaea erucifolia  are two different plant species, with two different homeranges S. erucifolius  and J. erucifolia . Could you tell me your opinion about this, please? Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 09:09, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
- I apologize, but I am not a botanic specialist and I dont have any advice about your question. I am interested by succulent plants and cactuses, but I am disappointed when seeing the changes of names. For example, the nice name Lobivia (anagram of the name of country Bolivia) changed to Echinopsis. Or Notocactus changed to Parodia. It is hard to understand and it makes genuses with (too) many species. Best regards. --Tangopaso (talk) 19:42, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
On your pictures of Bombus subterraneus there is actually a completely different species
I'm studying apiology and I must say that you have unfortunately identified these pictures http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Iz_-_Bombus_subterraneus_-_UK_1.jpg wrong.
This is B. subterraneus http://www.bwars.com/index.php?q=bee/apidae/bombus-subterraneus, which has been seen in the UK only in one area after the year 2000 and before that was declared extinct in UK. What you have in the pictures is Andrena cineraria (http://www.bwars.com/index.php?q=bee/andrenidae/andrena-cineraria), which is quite common in UK :)
Hi DenesFeri, sorry for the delay answering. Yes, that photo is not from Phrynops geoffroanus. This one is. I am not an expert in turtles in general (I know a bit about the south american ones), but it looks to me like a member of en:Trionychidae; although I could be completely wrong :) Sorry for not being more useful. Best. --Erfil (talk) 17:10, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
