Congratulations, Dear Administrator![edit]

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Elya, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons on irc.freenode.net. There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators: #wikimedia-commons-admin.

Also consider joining #wikimedia-admin, the cross-wiki coordination channel for Wikimedia administrators. Ask any channel operator for an invite exemption (or anyone in the channel may /invite you in temporarily). All admins from all projects are welcome.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references....

My personal congratulations. Clearly you are held in high regard by your peers. Take it slow at first and if you have any questions please ask, your fellow admins will be glad to help. ++Lar: t/c 22:36, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

PS, what's your native language? We like to use the language codes when we update the lists and I did not do that because i was not sure if de, en or something else was your native one. Thanks! (maybe you can do it?) ++Lar: t/c 22:43, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. No danger that I won't take it slow - it's christmas ;-) Native language is done, quite old userpage and userboxes, I suppose. Best wishes, --Elya (talk) 07:16, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

I did by date, and I see by language got done, are you an admin at any other projects? If so you will want to update the other projects list... (Commons:List of administrators by adminship status in other Wikimedia projects) ++Lar: t/c 14:56, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

File:Prof eckhard heise 2006.jpg[edit]

Höre bitte mit dem Vandalismis bei dem File:Prof eckhard heise 2006.jpg auf. Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen dass Category:Scientists from Germany eine Oberkategorie von Category:1944 births ist. Weiter ist die Category:University of Wuppertal alumni keine Unterkategorie der Wissenschaftler, sondern nur von Personen aus Wuppertal und der Bergischen Universität. --Atamari (talk) 22:55, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, hatte nicht gesehen, daß ich die „Medievalists from Germany“ noch nicht richtig angelegt hatte. Da gehört er nämlich rein. Ich räume die Oberkategorie „Scientists“ auf, damit nicht Alchemisten, Physiknobelpreisträger und Kunsthistoriker da zusammen rumliegen. Bißl mehr AGF fände ich im übrigen nett - gleich Vandalismus zu unterstellen muß ja nun auch nicht sein. Grüße, --Elya (talk) 09:31, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

University of Wuppertal faculty[edit]

Was ist jetzt der Unterschied Category:University of Wuppertal faculty zwischen und Category:University of Wuppertal alumni? Wobei erster und neuere keine vernünftige Eltern-Kategorie hat. -Atamari (talk) 18:32, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

die beiden Kategorien gibt's in vielen, leider noch nicht allen Uni-Kats. Das eine sind Lehrkörper (Professoren etc.) einer Uni, das andere Personen, die dort studiert haben. die Faculty hat die Uni als Elternkategorie, was ist daran unvernünftig? Grüße, --Elya (talk) 18:57, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
P.S: natürlich müßten jetzt noch ein paar aus Alumni umgehängt werden, aber ich arbeite mich erst mal von den zugemüllten Hauptkategorien her durch. --Elya (talk) 18:58, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Mit Elternkategorie meine ich dass nicht alle "faculty" aus Deutschland zusammen gefasst sind. Dann müßt die Kat "alumni" aufgeräumt werden. Wer mal wo studiert hatte ist sekundär. Hochschullehrer ist schon eher von Interesse. --Atamari (talk) 19:16, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
bei historischen Personen, die eine berühmte Uni besucht haben, ist es schon üblich, die besuchte Uni mit aufzuführen, es gibt reichlich Alumni-Kats. Du hast aber Recht, ich habe noch die passende Elternkategorie zu der Faculty gefunden: Category:Faculty by university or college in Germany. Gruß, --Elya (talk) 19:22, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

orphan file page[edit]

Hallo Elya, gerade bin ich bei einem Artikel (Aborigines) ueber ein Bild gestolpert, dass Du wohl mit der Begruendung "orphan file page" geloescht hast. Verstehe ich richtig, dass ein orphan file eine Datei ist, die nirgends eingebunden ist? War sie aber...

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, Elya!

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.

Großwallstädter Kirche[edit]

Hallo Elya, entschuldige, dass ich so spät schreibe, du hattest mich Anfang September angeschrieben, ob der Architekt Dominikus Böhm beim Bau/Umbau der Großwallstädter Kirche beteiligt war. Böhm war ja bei uns in der Region (in Karlstein) tätig, bei der Kirche in Großwallstadt handelt es sich auch zutreffend um St. Peter und Paul. Allerdings ist die Kirche in Großwallstadt soweit ich weiß nicht modern ausgebaut (Ich muss allerdings dazu sagen, dass ich nicht direkt in Großwallstadt, sondern im Nachbarort wohne). Gruß, Tilman AB! 25.09.2009

Kirche Karlstein-Großwelzheim[edit]

Hallo Elya,

ich bin mal wieder spät dran mit meiner Antwort :-)

Die Kirche in Karlstein, von der ich ein Bild hochgeladen habe, ist St. Bonifatius (File:Karlstein Kirche Großwelzheim.JPG).

Mein Bild File:Karlstein Neue Kirche Dettingen.JPG hast du schon gesehen? Das zeigt die Kirche St. Peter und Paul in Karlstein-Dettingen, die ist auch von Dominikus Böhm gebaut worden!

Gruß, Tilman 13:00, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

prima, ich war mir inzwischen auch schon fast sicher, daß es nur diese sein kann. Die andere hatte ich wirklich schon gefunden, danke :-)

File:Sangiran IV (Mandible).jpg[edit]

Ich habe da einen groben Fehler in der Benennung gemacht, das Bild müsste auf File:Sangiran IV (Palate).jpg verschoben werden, wenn so was bei den Bildern überhaupt möglich ist. --Gerbil (talk) 20:59, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Ich habe das Bild nach File:Sangiran IV (Palate).jpg verschoben. Die dabei entstandene Weiterleitung stellt sicher, dass es keine kaputten Bilderlinks in der Wikipedia gibt. Raymond 22:02, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Danke; das war im Museum nicht konkret ausgeschildert und lag da wie sonst die Unterkiefer. --Gerbil (talk) 22:09, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]

Hello!

Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:

Lizenzvorlage[edit]

Hi Elya, you might want to wrap __NOINDEX__ on User:Elya/licence in <noinclude></noinclude> as I don't really see a reason why your file description pages shouldn't be indexed. -- User:Docu at 06:50, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Help me, please[edit]

Please, help me! 3 photos of mine are in the project without the permission of the people portraited. Could you please delate them? Here are the pics: File:A woman's portrait.JPG File:Portrait d'une femme.jpg File:A girl looking at herself in the mirror.jpg

I really appreciate your help. Thank you

Just for your information. Alessandro has asked 12 admins at the same time to perform these deletions. In between, regular DRs have been filed for Commons:Deletion requests/File:Portrait d'une femme.jpg and Commons:Deletion requests/File:A woman's portrait.JPG, whereas the third image is heavily used on many projects. I would recommend not to file a speedy without any further input from the uploader. --Túrelio (talk) 13:27, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Wiki-train video[edit]

Hey, excellent work on the Wiki-train video, it's very well paced and interesting to watch :) I have a suggestion, though: how about adding a scrolling list of the Wikipedians present, à la credits style, when the train is leaving? I think it would complete the video nicely :) Cheers, Waldir talk 07:47, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

hi Waldir, thank you for the compliment, it was fun work! I'm sorry that I won't be able to do a "credit line" because (a) I do not know all of them personally and (b) not everybody likes his picture linked to his/her name. Thx for your understanding. --Elya (talk) 09:44, 27 August 2010 (UTC)  
Well, I think you can get the list of people, wiki-style :) i.e, contact some of them, and ask them to help complete the rest.
About the privacy issue, well, the names (or usernames, whichever they prefer for greater privacy) wouldn't be directly associated to each person, but rather as an alpbabetic list scrolling up (just like in movie endings), so it would be very hard to pinpoint someone that appears in the video to a specific name, unless you already know the person previously. In any case, why not ask the people? They might well say they don't mind :) What do you think? --Waldir talk 11:30, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

De-adminship warning[edit]

Deutsch | Español | Italian

Dear Elya. I am writing to you to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you Huib talk Abigor @ meta 08:03, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

done. --Elya (talk) 09:42, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Maria in den Trümmern[edit]

Hallo Elya,
dein schönes Foto File:Kolumba madonna in den truemmern 2009.jpg, das bereits auf einer externen Website wiederverwendet wird (siehe Bild-Disku), macht mir etwas Bauchschmerzen. Das Kapellen-Innere ist sicher als geschütztes Kunstwerk zu betrachten und Böhms Urheberrecht daran ist sicher noch nicht abgelaufen. Und Panoramafreiheit gilt in D. nicht für Innenräume. Könntest du mal versuchen bei Böhm oder Nachfahren nachzufragen, ob sie dir eine Genehmigung für das Foto geben? --Túrelio (talk) 21:30, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Turelio, ich stehe schon seit einiger Zeit in sporadischem Kontakt zum Buero Boehm und habe das Problem bereits angesprochen (und bin zumindest wohlwollend aufgenommen worden) ... die Bauchschmerzen betreffen nicht nur dieses Bild. Das Thema ist eines meiner "laengerfristigen" Projekte. Gruesse, Elya (talk) 09:48, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Deine Verschiebung ...[edit]

Hallo Elya, du hast gestern File:Ingo Nommsen Berlinale 2008.jpg nach File:Marco Schreyl Berlinale 2008.jpg verschoben. Das war leider falsch. Eine Disk dazu hatte bereits im Vorfeld des Uploads hier stattgefunden, da der Ipernity-Uploader sich geirrt hat. Das Bild zeigt Nommsen und nicht Schreyl, der vollkommen anders aussieht. Das ich keinen Ipernity-Account habe, hab ich Siebbi diesbezüglich nicht angeschrieben, mir aber bei der File-Umbenennung schon was gedacht. ;-) Würdest du die Datei bitte wieder rückverschieben? Danke, --Paulae (talk) 09:29, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Achje. Ich habe mir jetzt ein Dutzend Fotos von diesen gutaussehenden jungen Männern angesehen und bin vollends verwirrt. Ich mache einfach mal, was Du sagst ;-) – sorry für die Konfusion. --Elya (talk) 17:57, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Image:Beaufront.jpg[edit]

You deleted File:Beaufront.jpg "(In category: Media missing permission as of 1 September 2010; no permission / claimed "own work" not plausible, subject died 1935)" While the subject died in 1935, the picture necessarily is PD an you should not delete it. It is now lacking in several pages. Arno Lagrange 12:28, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Not the subject, but the death of the photographer has to be more than 70 years ago. As we do not know the photographer … :-| In the de.wp we allow images older than 100 years. If you wish, I can restore the image and put it in a regular deletion request, maybe there are PD regulations I did not see in this case. However, it's not a good idea to claim „own work“ for images that are clearly not yours. --Elya (talk) 06:33, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

File:Campaña Iguales Chile 1.jpg[edit]

Hi!

I have the permission of the people of Iguales Chile. The problem is that they don't have an "official" mailing account (they have registered www.iguales.cl but at this moment is just a redirection to their Facebook page). I'm waiting for a more formal permission about licensing it in CC-BY-SA so I can send a copy to OTRS. --B1mbo (talk) 21:26, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

No source vs permission[edit]

Hi Elya. I noticed you tagged an image with {{no source}}, File:JinNiu.jpg (now deleted), but the file had source information. The image was watermarked with a website, so using {{no permission}} for watermarked images would make deletion easier. Thanks! --ZooFari 19:15, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

well, the source in fact was completely unplausible – in some of these cases it makes no difference. However, I'll tag it different, if it makes your life easier ;-) --Elya (talk) 19:23, 19 July 2011 (UTC)


Leere Kategorien[edit]

Hallo Elya, was hast Du Dir nur bei den vielen leeren Kategorien wie unter Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Kreis Borken, Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Oberbergischer Kreis und Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Rheinisch-Bergischer Kreis gedacht? Die würden Sinn machen, wenn Du sie denn füllen würdest, doch davon ist nichts zu sehen. Da Kategorien hier nur ein Werkzeug zum Ordnen von Dateien darstellen, nicht aber einem Selbstzweck dienen, sind leere Kategorien sinnlos und die idealen Kandidaten für eine Schnelllöschung. Stelle Dir nur mal vor, alle User würden Deinem Beispiel folgen und massenweise leere Kategorien erzeugen, in denen man sich nur noch verirren aber nichts mehr finden kann! Also, fülle bitte die jetzt noch leeren Kategorien baldmöglichst um deren Löschung zu vermeiden. Gefüllt wären die ja durchaus sinnvoll. -- Ies (talk) 16:17, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

sie werden benötigt, und sie werden in Kürze gefüllt werden, siehe die europaweite Veranstaltung Wiki Loves Monuments bzw. für Deutschland de:Wikipedia:Wiki loves monuments 2011.

Though the collection of images for the contest has been completed (as we informed you previously), the organizers of the contest "Wikipedia loves Petersburg" are glad to update you on the current course of events.

Our jury is working hard; on November, 1 it will declare the winners and the recipients of special prizes. We ask those of you who have not yet set up an e-mail address to do it at user preferences page so that the jury could contact the participants of the contest and to hand out the awards. The winners of the European-wide Wiki Loves Monuments competition will be announced later, in mid-November.

Already on November 2 in St. Petersburg, the Art-hotel "Rachmaninov", located on 5, Kazanskaya St., will open an exhibition of works by the participants of the contest. We inform you about the opening time via the website http://wikilovesmonuments.ru/

If you have any questions or need help with Wikimedia Commons, you can contact user kaganer. You can ask any questions about the contest by sending an e-mail to info@wikimedia.ru

Thank you again for your participation!.

"Wikipedia loves Petersburg" contest results are summed up[edit]

Wiki Loves Monuments Logo notext.svg

On November, 1 the winners of the contest "Wiki Loves Monuments" were announced.

It was difficult to select the winners. More than 450 users participated in the contest, having uploaded more than 4400 photographs. The Organizing Committee thanks everybody who took part, tried their hands, and agreed to make their work available to the whole world. There is fascinating work ahead of Wikipedia users: To employ the images to illustrate the articles in Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia which is available in 270 languages.

Do not get upset if you have not won. Look into Wikipedia articles - you may soon find your work there, to help people to visualise the buildings you have taken photographs of. Besides, we will contact you to hand you in a souvenir to recognize your particiation. We hope you will accept this sign of our gratitude.

If you have a chance, you can visit the exhibition of photographs, which has been organized in Saint Petersburg and shows some of the photographs submitted to the contest.

We hope you will participate in the future competitions planned by Wikimedia RU and thank you for your contribution.

You can ask any questions about the contest by sending an e-mail to info@wikimedia.ru.

Sincerely,
In the name of the Organizing Committee,
Lvova Anastasia.

File:Participating Countries WLM 2012.svg[edit]

Hi Elke!
I had a look at the map you prepared (the design is just beautiful) and wanted to add Poland. I have had a closer look at the code of the file and have seen that there is plenty of Adobe-related code that makes the file unusable in Inkscape and makes the file so big. Could you please add Poland and remove the unnecessary Adobe code from the file? Thanks, odder (talk) 13:49, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

grrr. My Mac hates Inkscape, and Illustrator creates horrible XML, I know... So I suppose I open up the virtual Windows system tonight ;-) --Elya (talk) 14:13, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
That's lovely, thank you! odder (talk) 14:18, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Halleluja. I used these wonderful tipps and cleaned the code both of Inkscape's and Illustrator's unnecessary metadata (only on export, no manual fixing). And a different way of placing the logo helped kicking out the binary stuff. Smaller, more beautiful code. And Poland is in :-) --Elya (talk) 18:25, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

File:CSBS Alice Wiegand.ogv[edit]

Hallo Elya, welches Format hatte denn da das Ursprungsvideo? Schwarze Ränder müssen in aller Regel nicht sein (sind nicht schön, brauchen Server-Speicherplatz und Bandbreite beim Streamen). Gruß, --Pristurus (talk) 20:42, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

das Ursprungsformat war ein beinahe perfektes mp4, und inzwischen (mit Rückgriff auf Deine guten alten ffmpeg-Parameter) sollte es auch passen ;-) --Elya (talk) 19:45, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Da habe ich mich wohl etwas ungenau ausgedrückt, mea culpa; es ging mir um die Dimension des Ursprungsvideos, also Breite x Höhe der Frames. Damit ist dann auch das Seitenverhältnis schon festgelegt (heute meistens 16:9), dass man möglichst bei allen weiteren Bearbeitungsschritten beibehalten sollte. Schwarze Ränder sollten dabei in keinem Bearbeitungsschritt auftauchen, sonst stimmt irgendwas nicht. Jetzt hat das Video aber Trauerrand, daher die Nachfrage. Gruß, --Pristurus (talk) 20:55, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
ah, jetzt sehe ich was du meinst, vorher war eine Letterbox (?) drumherum und der Sound völlig kaputtkomprimiert, deshalb hatte ich die neue Version erstellt. Das mp4 hatte die jetzigen Streifen allerdings auch schon, insofern ist das ogv „korrekt“. Ausgangsformat war Full HD 1920x1080, exportiert aus iMovie HD in mp4, der Export geht hier unter Beibehaltung der Proportionen „unter Verwendung von“ Letterbox, Beschneiden oder Größe anpassen – ich bin da immer etwas unsicher, was ich verwende und bin an dem Punkt meist schon etwas genervt, weil Export und Konvertierung länger dauern als der eigentliche Videoschnitt … Idee? --Elya (talk) 05:31, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
Hallo Elya, von Mac-Programmen habe ich keine Ahnung, ich bin nur Windows-User. Hier wird allerdings zur Ausgabe aus Imovie gesagt, Full-HD wäre über den Menüpunkt "Mit Quicktime exportieren" unter manueller Angabe der Auflösung (bei dir sollte das 1920x1080 sein) möglich. Dabei verlierst du aber (wie auch bei einem mp4-Export) etwas Qualität durch diese Zwischenspeicherung mit Neukodierung. Wenn man das vermeiden will, könnte man noch perian installieren und dann mit ffvhuff als Videocodec und wav/pcm als Audioformat als Avi ausgeben lassen; ffvhuff arbeitet dann lossless (ohne Qualitätsverlust), gibt aber auch sehr große Dateien, man braucht mehr Festplattenplatz. Ansonsten, ja, die Umrechnerei dauert, da hat man als Anwender auch keinen direkten Einfluss drauf. Also einfach gelassen hinnehmen und in der Zeit etwas anderes machen... Gruß, --Pristurus (talk) 20:22, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Typo in the WLM factsheet[edit]

Hi Elya, first of all thumbs up for your great factsheet about WLM (on it.wiki, we are translating it). I have spotted a typo, in "You can help Wikipedia and win a price", "price" should be "prize" ;-). May you fix it? Thank you -- CristianCantoro (talk) 22:11, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Cristian, thanks for both the compliment and the typo ;-) - I fixed it. If you want to translate it, I can provide you with the original Illustrator file if that helps (the pdf should be editiable too, in Illustrator). --Elya (talk) 07:05, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

S. Maria im Kapitol[edit]

I have just replaced a file that you uploaded [2]

I didn't retain the original because the original was distorted and misleading.

A lot of photographers use the optical perspective adjustment on Photoshop without realising that this is just the first stage in a fairly complex operation. What generally happens is that the building becomes shorter and wider than it is in reality. All the semi-circular arches get squashed. All the windows and doors become wide and flat. In the case of a building with towers, the towers might become half the height that they are in reality.

So I've adjusted the pic and loaded it over the top (something which I rarely do, if the original merely needs straightening).

Amandajm (talk) 03:56, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Not sure if if it was really necessary, as it was already quite noisy and doesn't get better by re-saving it as jpg – but it wasn't my image anyway, I transferred it to Commons in 2005, and it's rarely used … However, it shows me that I should visit this church and replace the image by something better at some time. --Elya (talk) 08:55, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Категорії з одним файлом[edit]

Доброго вечора Elya. Може не варто створювати категорії на один-єдиний файл? Я завжди думав, що категоріями об'єднують кілька споріднених файлів, але ж не один... Ви ще й пусті категорії чомусь створюєте.--Сергій (обг.) 19:01, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

(sorry, I understand, read and talk Ukrainian, but do not write easily): I felt a bit lazy if I created only the ones with several images ;-) we can do that of course, but I'm not sure somebody cares to create a single category if he/she uploads a second monument image later. It seemed more consistent for me to create them all. However, if you as a member of the Lviv/Ukrainian community disagree, I stop doing it this way - just want to help out a bit with the unused images and the overcrowded "Cultural heritage" category. --Elya (talk) 19:05, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
And one more thing: a category for a street would not necessarily be in “Cultural heritage monument in Lviv", as it contains also other buildings. So we would need to keep the image itself in the overcrowded parent category? What do you think? --Elya (talk) 19:09, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
PS: Did I appreciate the fantastic work you did in WLM Lviv? Most of the images I saw are made by you, this is great, thank you for that! --Elya (talk) 19:31, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Дивіться: що нам справді треба, так це об'єднати існуючі файли у категорії, але лише тоді, коли їх більше ніж 1. Так, категорія "Cultural heritage..." переповнена, але якщо на кожен файл створити по категорії, то вона і далі буде переповненою (було 33 тис файлів, а стане майже 33 тис категорій). Так, потім будуть нові файли, а категорій ніхто не створить. Але я завжди був переконаний, що створення категорій "на майбутнє" - теж хибний шлях. Бо пусті категорії згідно з правилами підлягають швидкому вилученню.
Я ніби не бачив, щоб хтось відносив цілі вулиці до категорії "Cultural heritage...". Якщо натраплю на таке - виправлю. Сподіваюсь я правильно зрозумів вашу думку. Якщо під "overcrowded parent category" ви маєте на увазі категорію-вулицю, то припустимо лежить у ній 20 пам'яток і 50 не-пам'яток. Ми можемо створити для пам'яток 20 підкатегорій, але в parent category всеодно буде 70 одиниць. Результат той самий? / Вибачте, якщо не правильно зрозумів вашу думку.
Щодо P.S. Так, трохи попрацював над Львовом:) Багато файлів завантажив ще до WLM. Тут величезна кількість будівель, які офіційно не є пам'ятками, але давно заслуговують на цей статус. Стараюсь усі ці будинки фотографувати, класифікувати, описувати. Шукаю інформацію про архітекторів і пишу їхні біографії (більшість зібрано отут: uk:Категорія:Архітектори Львова)--Сергій (обг.) 20:19, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
OK, so I won't create these fine-granulated categories anymore for single images. I'll check some of the other raions the next days, lots of lists are not linked to the correct commons category, and lots of images IDs in the main category are invalid . Lots of work todo even without creating categories ;-) What do you think about buildings like „Будинок правління Ужанського комітату“ in Uzhhorod? Should we create an address category (пл.Жупанатська, 3/3 Zhupanatska Square, Uzhhorod), or use the Ukrainian name of the building for the category? Not sure how you handle it on this level. In Germany, we choose english languague names for main and intermediate categories, but on the lowest level, we often have the original names because it does not make sense to translate them. On the other hand, we have english categories for a lot of wooden churches in Zakarpattia. What do you think?  --Elya (talk) 20:30, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Доброго ранку. Щодо назв категорій... не знаю, що вам порадити. Сам періодично маю із цим проблему. Церкви мають певний набір "стандартних" назв-посвят, тому майже завжди можна знайти англійський відповідник. Але такі будівлі... Отакі багатослівні назви я часом навіть перекладав, якщо знаходив усталений англійський відповідник. Деколи ж - називав як "ХХ Zhupanatska Square, Uzhhorod". В останньому варіанті є низка переваг. В цій будівлі зараз знаходиться щось інше - не жупанат, і за різних політичних режимів були різні установи. У свою чергу назва "ХХ Zhupanatska Square, Uzhhorod" - це принаймні точно і свою функцію (групування файлів) вона виконує. Зараз, на біду можна створювати і такі. Потім, якщо якийсь мешканець Ужгорода захоче - він перейменує категорію (таких випадків буде обмаль). Йому буде не складно перенести п'ять файлів до нової категорії, значно легше, ніж відсіяти їх із тисяч некатегоризованих. Просто оригінальну назву (транскрипцію) я щось собі не уявляю...--Сергій (обг.) 05:27, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Kooperation mit Bundesarchiv?[edit]

Hallo, ich fand Dich auf der 2008er-Seite über die Kooperation zwischen Wiki Stiftung und Bundesarchiv. Was wurde eigentlich daraus, und gibt es einen "einfachen" Weg, weitere Bilder vom BA zu bekommen? Danke, Maximilian (talk) 07:56, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Hallo Maximilian, ich erlaube mir mal, für Elya zu antworten, da ich die Kooperation mit vorbereitet habe und immer noch Kontakt zum Bundesarchiv habe. Leider wurde die Kooperation aber beendet, d.h. grundlegend neue Bildserien sind vorerst nicht zu erwarten. Grund ist die starke nicht-lizenzkonforme Nachnutzung der Bilder durch Dritte. Ich habe dir soeben per E-Mail ein PDF mit einem Artikel des Bundesarchivs zur Kooperation und den Gründen zur Beendigung geschickt. Wenn du noch Fragen dazu hast, kannst du mich gerne ansprechen.

Simultanhalle Köln-Volkhoven 2010-1.jpg

Hi Elya, I just discovered your pictures of the Simultanhalle in Cologne and will include one of them in a expanded version of de:Attentat von Volkhoven, just to document the present state of the premises. I decided to take the picture mentioned above, and not the other one, for the reason that the profile of the building is more characteristic for its purpose (in 1979 and now). Cheers, and thank you --Cimbail (talk) 20:14, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Hungersnot Ukraine.jpg[edit]

Danke sehr für der Quellen. I will draw a new map since your photo and these sources, in the next days. But in Photoshop (psd) because I don't know the vectorised work (svg). If you or someone can vectorise later the future map, very good. Wishes, --Spiridon Ion Cepleanu (talk) 23:35, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Spiridon, that's nice but a pity for the double work! I can recommend just trying around with a good existing vector map from Commons, e.g. you could use the Free Inkscape program. I prevents a lot of pain to to it in vector graphics, especially others can work on it, which is not (really) possible if you provide a jpeg. --Elya (talk) 06:54, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
To modify a jpg is very easy with Photoshop... I have since few days an Inkscape, I'm just begin the learning. But when I try to upload my vectorised work in Commons, the picture is invisible !!!! I try with 10, 20 30, 40, 50 passes (resolution levels)... Nothing to do ! >:-( --Spiridon Ion Cepleanu (talk) 15:27, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

File:Simultanhalle Köln-Volkhoven 2010-2.jpg[edit]

Hast du auch Fotos der anderen Seite des Hofes (ehemalige Schule) oder des Zugangstores? Steht unter Denkmalschutz und war Schauplatz eines Attentats. --Eingangskontrolle (talk) 10:35, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Muß ich schauen, ist schon lange her. Ich meine, ich hätte nur Details der Schule fotografiert, oder das Licht stand falsch, vielleicht hat auch User:Raymond was auf der Platte.--Elya (talk) 13:01, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Ich habe gerade schon meine Platte durchsucht. Habe leider nur die Gedenktafel zum Attentat fotografiert und ein paar Schnappschüsse der Umgebung für meine OSM-Aktivitäten. Aber nix brauchbares für den Artikel dabei. Sorry. Raymond 13:18, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
@Eingangskontrolle: Gerade eben kam eine Pressemitteilung der Stadt Köln herein:
"Am Jahrestag selbst, Mittwoch, 11. Juni 2014, erinnern mehrere Veranstaltungen der Stadt Köln und des Bürgerverein Köln-Volkhoven/Weiler e.V. an das Geschehen. Um 14 Uhr wird Oberbürgermeister Jürgen Roters an der ehemaligen Katholischen Volksschule Volkhovener Weg, dem damaligen Tatort, einen Kranz niederlegen. Nach einem etwa zehnminütigen Schweigemarsch beginnt etwa um 14.45 Uhr eine Gedenkfeier in der Schulaula des städtischen Heinrich-Mann-Gymnasiums. [...] Das ehemalige Schulgelände wird am Tag der Gedenkveranstaltung zugänglich sein. Ab 13 Uhr öffnen einige der dort arbeitenden Künstler ihre Ateliers und die Simultanhalle. Auf dem Schulhof wird außerdem eine Audioinstallation zu hören sein."
Hervorhebung durch mich. Ob ich es selber an dem Tag dorthin schaffe, kann ich heute noch nicht sagen. Hängt von der Arbeit etc. ab. Raymond 15:51, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
