Image:Suillus luteus 2.jpg[edit]

This is not Suillus subluteus - in Poland does not step out such species. Forgive translating automatic ( I do not know English language). I greet. Selso 17:25, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Image:What am i.jpg - Identification[edit]

Hi Eric,

I saw your picture in the unidentified plants category ... It's a Datura, but I don't know exactly which species. Most probably it's Datura stramonium, but they are all very similar. --Carstor 12:33, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi Carstor- That looks like it--thanks a million! Do you mind a little English Einrichtung regarding your discussion page? At the top, the second part should read: "...you'll find the answers here as well." Alternatively, you could just change it to: "I will respond here to posts made here." --Eric
Thanks for the correction ... but "Einrichtung" isn't the correct german word as well, I guess you meant "Berichtigung" or "Verbesserung". :-) All the best, --Carstor 14:39, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! I had a feeling that wasn't right--my German is rusty! There's a good word I wanted to use in English--tweak--for which LEO gives "zwicken," but I wasn't sure about that either. --Eric my en:wp talk page 15:38, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Re: rename question[edit]

Hi Eric,

In the end, I uploaded the right one with a slightly different name, and requested deletion for the bad one - that's exactly what should happen. :) The trick is to upload the image with the better name first, then request the bad-name one for deletion (using {{bad name}}). This is because we would rather have a badly named image than no image at all, so if you don't upload the correctly named one first, the old one might not be deleted.

{{rename}} represents a request for someone else to do the re-uploading, it doesn't actually mean the image will be renamed unless someone volunteers to do it. So for your own images you should definitely do the housekeeping yourself. :P

hope this helps, pfctdayelise (说什么?) 01:02, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Category:Trail Markers, Category:Trail blazes and Category:Hiking and footpath signs[edit]

Hi, my knowlidge of English language and local usage and differences of terminology is low, so I have submited it for discussion and consideration:

Category discussion notification Category:Trail Markers, Category:Trail blazes and Category:Hiking and footpath signs have been listed at Commons:Categories for discussion so that the community can discuss ways in which it should be changed. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this category, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for discussion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution.

If the category is up for deletion because it has been superseded, consider the notion that although the category may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new category.
In all cases, please do not take the category discussion personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!

File:Remi Clovis Reims.jpg[edit]

Hi Eric, I've seen you've reverted my edit on the categories and I disagree. Let me explain: I changed it from Category:Saint Remigius churches to Category:Saint Remigius because I understood that the stone is in the Cathedral of Reims, which is dedicated to St. Mary, so it isn't in a church or a chapel dedicated to St. Remigius. Also, I put it in Category:Baptism of Clovis I since it is related to this event. Thanks. --Cruccone (talk) 17:16, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Ciao Cruccone- Ah, I get it now. Thought the churches cat was just an awkwardly named one for churches having to do with Remi. Once again I find myself wishing definitions were required for categories--then I wouldn't have mis-categorized it in the first place...and I completely missed the Clovis cat you put there--sorry! I reverted my revert. Grazie! --Eric my en.wp talk page 17:58, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
It's all right, to be honest there are times I'm not really sure I'm putting the right categories, I just try to put a bit of order in the mess, but there's so much stuff to do! Ciao! --Cruccone (talk) 18:56, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

I suggest asking at Commons:Help desk. --Timeshifter (talk) 22:01, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Category:Clay[edit]

Dear Eric, before you "boldly" revert other people's edits, I suggest that you educate yourself regarding the basics of Wikipedia and Wikidata. By reverting my edit you have created a Wikidata conflict. What I did was very simple: Category:Clay on Commons is linked to Wikidata Category:Clay, the page Clay (a page off the Category:Clay) is associated with Wikidata:Clay — with all of its associated interwiki links. If you dont' understand this, please take a bit of time researching and understanding this before you blindly assume that you know better than someone else who has been editing for a while. All of those interwiki links which you tried to reinstate were already duplicated in Wikidata:Clay. Very trivial (talk) 11:43, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Dear @Very_trivial: Use edit summaries and you'll look more like someone who's been editing for a while. When I did not understand the reason for your edit, I erred on the side of blindly assuming that anyone who can't be bothered to leave an edit summary was wasting other editors' time here. So thanks for the education, and for not sniveling defensively when your unexplained edits are reverted. --Eric my en.wp talk page 13:57, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
