Ecclesiastical Province of New York Map[edit]

I noticed a graph legend coloring error on http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ecclesiastical_Province_of_New_York_map.png -- Syracuse's label should be orange.U664003803 (talk) 14:24, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Ecclesiastical Province of Newark Map[edit]

I noticed on your image, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ecclesiastical_Province_of_Newark_map.png, Paterson is misspelled. There should only be one t, not two. --Cg41386 (talk) 16:06, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Farragutful!

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.

Houston Buildings[edit]

There seems to be at least a couple mix-ups in some of your downtown Houston images.

Only the best places.
I'd like to think I can get all of Montgomery County, Maryland this month, but the northern places may have to wait. Greater Poolesville is next! (Hopefully the weather will cooperate.) Farragutful (talk) 22:23, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Edward T. Potter[edit]

Hi. What's the reasoning behind removing Potter from my images of the Grace Church chancery? The information I have is that he designed it. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:33, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

He did design it, but your photos are part of a larger category Category:Grace Church (Manhattan), which includes the category "Edward T. Potter." Your photos do not need to be individually listed as it serves only to clutter the category with extraneous photos. I've taken several photos of Potter's Trinity Cathedral and have not listed any of them separately. By organizing the photos of a single place into one category and then linking it to other categories (denomination, architecture type, name, architect, etc.) allows for better organization and navigation. Quite frankly there is no reason for your photos, or mine, to be singled out. The single photos in the category exist as such because there are only single photos of those buildings at this time. Farragutful (talk) 11:58, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, but I disagree with your reasoning. It would be better to remove Potter from the larger Grace Church category, as he did not design anything else there, and leave him on the images of what he specifically did design, i.e. the chancery. That would be clearer and would better serve those who use the collection. Beyond My Ken (talk) 19:43, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
I was unaware of that he did not design the entire church. I only took note that the "Edward T. Potter" category is listed as a part of the "Grace Church (Manhattan)" category and thought there was a redundancy. It makes sense to me to attribute to him only those things that he designed and not the entire church. We, therefore, do not disagree. I am at fault for not looking into this beyond a category on the Commons, but you might rethink how you communicate. I only needed the facts. Putting words in bold and italics is demeaning to us both. Farragutful (talk) 20:28, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Peoria today?[edit]

I noticed you updated File:Cathedral of St. Mary Peoria Illinois.jpg. You didn't happen to get any shots from the opening of the Greenway Bridge (trail bridge) over IL 40/Knoxville Ave. this morning, did you? --Closeapple (talk) 22:00, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I did not. I was just passing through Peoria and wanted to replace the photos of St. Mary's I took a few years ago. I also wanted to get a few more historic structures, but I didn't have the time after I got the former Spalding Institute. Farragutful (talk) 22:08, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Do you object to Category:July 2014 in Illinois? You seem to have removed it in the 3 minutes between my adding it to a picture and my creating the category. --Closeapple (talk) 22:31, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

No, my mistake. I thought I was looking at one of the photos I changed and I know one of them had that category from 2010 and I changed it to 2014. When I went to the photo in question, thinking it was the other one, I noticed it wasn't active yet so I removed it. You can certainly undo my change. I have no problem with anyone adding categories to my photos. Farragutful (talk) 22:42, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Co-Cathedral of Saint Thomas More, Tallahassee[edit]

Here is the photo you requested - File:Co-Cathedral of Saint Thomas More, Tallahassee.JPG --Mjrmtg (talk) 10:51, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Kansas cathedrals[edit]

Got your note re. photos of Kansas cathedrals. Unfortunately, I don't expect to be photographing Kansas again soon; but it my travels take me in the direction of any of the cathedral cities you mentioned, I'll keep your request in mind. Ammodramus (talk) 00:16, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for responding. I figured as much, but I thought there was no harm in asking. I appreciate your willingness to keep the request in mind. Farragutful (talk) 22:50, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
If they'd be of interest to you, I've just uploaded four photos of stained-glass windows in the Beloit church. They're with the exterior photos at Category:St. John the Baptist Catholic Church (Beloit, Kansas). — Ammodramus (talk) 23:28, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Very well done. Thanks. Farragutful (talk) 12:38, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your note re. the Dodge City cathedral. Unfortunately, I didn't look at the WP article before going out and photographing it, or I would've realized that there was a second cathedral—the one in current use—in the city, and shot that one as well.
Also unfortunately, I hit Dodge City in the afternoon, and the cathedral faces east, so I couldn't get a good shot of the rather impressive front entrance. Next time I'm in Ford County... Ammodramus (talk) 12:12, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Not a problem. I appreciate you got the photos you did. I can also appreciate that the sun does make it tricky to take a decent photo at times. Farragutful (talk) 13:24, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Cathedral of St Peter, Rockford, IL[edit]

I received your request for pictures of the Cathedral of St Peter in Rockford. Thank you for the suggestion; I was able to get this done today.
