Hello, EncycloPetey!

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.

Incorrect audio file[edit]

Hi!

does not work. ogginfo tells me the following information:

Negative or zero granulepos (0) on vorbis stream outside of headers. This file was created by a buggy encoder
Vorbis stream 1:
Total data length: 29 bytes

If possible, could you please regenerate that file? Thank you! David.Monniaux (talk) 12:36, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

I've loaded a new version, but I don't know how long it will be before the new version is recognized by the server. Clearing my local cache has had no effect, but that's normal. --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:04, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Works for me. David.Monniaux (talk) 12:24, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Tirana[edit]

Could you make a Tirana.ogg file, to hear english pronontation of it? --Vinie007 (talk) 09:43, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Colchicum[edit]

Thanks. :) Yeah, it's probably Colchicum. It had a sort of bulge below the petals though. Probably just fertilized and beginning to turn into fruit. I went back to check today and the flowers were gone. :( Probably eaten by a goat. LOL, oh well. Anyway thanks for the ID. Obsidi♠nSoul 05:33, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

re: File:En-us-Shanghai.ogg[edit]

See: http://pokazywarka.pl/64gpcg/

It is not my mistake.

http://www.diki.pl/slownik-angielskiego/?q=Shanghai&source=opensearch -- pronunciation of city and the verb is the same. What is the problem? Upload another file: File:En-us-shanghai.ogg and File:En-us-Shanghai.ogg - will be the same files. // Bubel (dyskusja) 09:34, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes, it is your mistake. You made the move, and you had no good reason to make the move. The file was correctly named before the move. The error was that someone had added a category that should not have been there. No, the city and verb are not stressed the same by all English speakers. The verb is strssed on the first syllable, but the city name is stressed on the second syllable. Note also that the site you have appealed to is using a UK accent, not a US accent. British and US pronunciations are often different, although in this case the site you found seems to be in error, since it disagrees with the Oxford English Pronouncing Dictionary if it claims that both verb and proper noun are pronounced the same.
And no, I can't uploade another file because the redirect you created prevents me from doing this. And this would not fix the problem you created.
Please restore the file that you incorrectly renamed. --EncycloPetey (talk) 14:12, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

✓OK Done.

With doubts like this should give a more accurate description of the file :)

Elbow flexor model[edit]

Hi there, I have a question about the description for 2 of your images. File:Arm_flex_supinate.jpg says 27yo wrestler, File:Arm_flex_pronate.jpg says 26yo bouncer. From what I can tell though, these pictures look like the same person. Were they taken at the same time, or a year apart? From what I can tell, if it is apt, there was a 26 year old bouncer who took a photograph of his arm in a pronated position while he worked as a bouncer, then to celebrate his change to a career in pro wrestling, took a picture of his arm in a supinated position the following year. It seems strange though, like it's more easy to imagine someone took these photographs at the same time. Especially considering that the same shirt is worn, one might imagine that if they were taken a year apart that the shirt might be different. Dictabeard (talk) 13:14, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

If you looked at the edit history, you would have seen that some anon altered the description I originally wrote, which matched between the two images when I initially loaded them. This truth is a much simpler explanation than the story you invented. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:38, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Washington (audio file)[edit]

Thank you for the File:En-us-Washington.ogg. I used it for creation the spoken article about "Washington, D.C." (intro) for Russian Wikipedia. -- Andrew Krizhanovsky (talk) 21:46, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Re: Miscategorization[edit]

You're right, I think it should go both despite the tangle of overcategorization. You can leave explicit in the edit summary is not an error. I had seen such cases in es.wiki and accepted this dual categorization. At least until other specific categories. You think? Cheers, Metrónomo (talk) 04:44, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

A dual catgeorization (general language and planets) is possible. --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:29, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

About Audio[edit]

Hello :EncycloPetey,

I saw that you uploaded the audio of

. Could please upload for Rahul Gandhi and Mamata Banerjee. Thank You--Kkm010 (talk) 04:31, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

I would need to know the correct stress and pronunciation to do that. Otherwise, I'd just be creating an Americanized guess at the pronunciation. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:03, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Moss classification[edit]

The NCBI moss classification is out-of-date. A current and updated version is available at the author's website [1]. Several families and orders have changed classification since the publication of the system used by NCBI. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:28, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Cool, a online classification is always a good news. I will correct our categories according.
By first, I would like to modify our templates to specify that we will follow this classification.
But I need:
Do you have any idea for this shortname and displayname (not too long) ?
Thanks Liné1 (talk) 05:51, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
I would use Goffinet et al., sinc ethe other authors are not actually part of the same lab, or at the same university site. If you need more, you could used "2008 emend.", where the "emend." indicates it includes emendations to the 2008 paper, or you could use "on-line". They have a new classification "in press", but I expect that the on-line version will continue to be more up-to-date and revised as new discoveries are made. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:35, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
Hello, I have tried to contact M. Goffinet (I did that for multiple classification website and had quiet many positiv answer) but he hasn't answered yet.
Let us try "Goffinet et al" as short name and "Goffinet et al" as display name.
I will contact you to show you the result.
Thanks Liné1 (talk) 06:21, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
You can should the result on Bryophyta. Please, tell me if what you think of it. Thanks Liné1 (talk) 09:27, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
I migrated all taxa with rank higher or equal to family to "Goffinet et al". You will find all the families in Category:Families of Bryophyta. Regards Liné1 (talk) 14:02, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
I like the way that users can quickly navigate to families. The families of mosses have changed far less than other ranks over the last 40 years. --EncycloPetey (talk) 19:59, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Spirodela[edit]

Hi, please have a look here and give a comment: Talk:Spirodela polyrrhiza. I'd like to make your move of article and category undo. The spelling with one "r" was correct. -- Fice (talk) 18:26, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

No, the spelling with a single "r" was incorrect, although a common mistake. I've replied with fuller details on the talk page. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:18, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

English pronunciation of Bosnia and Herzegovina[edit]

Hello, I was wondering if it was possible for you to record a new sound file for the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina. As it currently stands the only sound file that exists only says "Bosnia" and not "Bosnia and Herzegovina" the country's full name. Regards, -- ◅PRODUCER (TALK) 19:19, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Done. File:En-us-Bosnia and Herzegovina.ogg --EncycloPetey (talk) 04:56, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Dagwood sandwich[edit]

Hello there, EncycloPetey! True story, I've been meaning to reach out to you for at least a couple of years now to ask you about the story behind your amazing Dagwood sandwich photo. You probably don't know me, but aside from being a contributor to enWP I also write a blog about Wikipedia, The Wikipedian. I've recently started an interview series about interesting work by Wikimedians that I admire (here's my first one, with User:Esemono). If you're willing, and if you think you'd have something to say, I'd love to put a few questions together like that for you. So what do you say: are you game? WWB (talk) 08:16, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps. I had a falling out with Wikipedia last fall, and don't care for the way the community has gone. Right now, I'm spending most of my wiki-time on Wikisource. In what format were you planning to conduct the interview? E-mail, user talk interaction, something else? --EncycloPetey (talk) 19:56, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Oh, definitely email format. Easy for both of us, and it's meant to be fun. I'd put together a few questions, similar to what I did for Esemono, but tailored to your work. I'm really interested in the sandwich, but I'd ask about your work on other projects. I did notice that you have not edited at Wikipedia for awhile, and while I do write the most about Wikipedia, I cover the whole Wikimedia movement. Let me know what you decide!
