Licences[edit]

Well... hello. I created an account here. But of course you already knew that, since you saw the images I uploaded: Image:Regular space.png and Image:Normal space.png. And that's the reason for my message: why did you change the licence tags the images had? If you check, you'll notice those were the tags on the previous images, en:Image:Regular.gif and en:Image:Normalspace.gif (if they haven't yet been deleted). --Fibonacci 01:02, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Hi, Fibonacci! If you check the history of en:Image:Normalspace.gif, you'll see that en:User:Toby Bartels, the author, didn't tag it as GFDL. And at Image:Normalspace.gif you'll see he specified "No rights reserved". I happen to know from talking to him in the past that he means {{CopyrightedFreeUse}}, and not {{PD}}. See Image talk:Separation axioms.png for a slightly related discussion.
Similarly, Toby wasn't the one who tagged en:Image:Regular.gif as PD.
Of course, it's a pretty academic difference. Dbenbenn 01:57, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Thanks, I had not seen the histories of the images. --Fibonacci 13:20, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for contacting me[edit]

Hi Fibonacci, I seem to have missed your message (had no notification). As far as I can remember some of Ivanrguez pictures were taken from spanish Websites and I could not read the copyright notice. But these seem to be deleted by now. Greetings -guety 02:20, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

Merge-to arrow[edit]

I would like to use your SVG to replace the old GIF but the background is not transparent. Would it be easy to fix? TIA HAND —Phil | Talk 10:42, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Yes it would. Just stop using Internet Explorer. The background is already transparent, but IE won't show it correctly. --Fibonacci 16:40, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Uniform tiling images[edit]

Hi, I appreciate the SVG replacements for my GIF images. I'm not sure how you do the conversion. I'm interested in showing the 32 uniform colorings for the 11 uniform tilings, and don't want to keep uploading inferior images. I'm wondering if you could help? I uploaded temporary image from a book, showing he 32 patterns. [1] 207.191.138.14 00:42, 7 August 2006 (UTC) [2]

Answered in your Wikipedia talk page. --Fibonacci 02:36, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Image:Ubuntu_logo.svg deleted[edit]

I have deleted this image, because it is trademarked and has a restrictive use policy, see http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/TrademarkPolicy/ - sorry about this. Note that trademarked logos are generally problematic - even if they belong to free software projects. Even the logos of the Wikimedia Foundation are (sadly) not free. -- Duesentrieb(?!) 08:53, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Even though the file I uploaded was explicitly licensed under the GNU GPL? --Fibonacci 15:30, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
Yes - with the strict trademark restrictions in place, the GPL is effectively worthles. The policy page i linked above forbids any modification, and als restricts use very much. Also note that often, the people that draw icons and release them under GPL don't really think about it - only the original designer of the logo has the right to do that. There are dozens of supposedly GPL icons of, say, the Acrobat logo - but those license claims are void if the original design is copyrighted. There's a strong bias against trademarked logos on commons.
It's ironic that many open source projects have non-free logos - either restricted by trademark, or directly using copyright (like wikimedia does). This appears to be the case because open content licenses don't directly address the case of logos - as they should, IMHO. Ideally, Logos would be free to use, except to express association or endorsement. That would be fine with me. But we sadly don't have that. -- Duesentrieb(?!) 18:52, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
So this PD claim is also void, and therefore, the image is not allowed here. Does it qualify for a speedy too? --Fibonacci 21:11, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
Indeed - the creator of that logo doesn't have rights to the original design, so he can't make it PD. It's derivative work. That he doesn't claim copyright to his contribution does not help - in fact, it's a direct violation of the terms of use of the ubuntu trademark. I'm afraid we have a lot more of those "but i have drawn it myself" type of derivative work under false licenses... -- Duesentrieb(?!) 09:55, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
Is there any special template I should apply to those images so they can be deleted upon sight by an admin? Or should I list each one separately at Commons:Deletion requests? (you might want to check the images on Ubuntu Linux - I think two of those are not allowed here and you could avoid them going through the lengthy deletion process). --Fibonacci 09:03, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
I'd tag them as {{logo}} -- Duesentrieb(?!) 21:05, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

File:Illusion4.gif[edit]

Hi. You indicated on my talk page that this image was deleted. I don't recall having uploaded an image with this caption, however. If it was in fact mine, could you please let me know what it was and when it was uploaded. Just so I can be more careful in future. Many thanks. - Mu 18:55, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. It must have been one of my first uploads. Since then, I've learnt to be more wary of wp:en :-) - Mu 19:26, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

It was on polish wikipedia as FLOSS, so i tought that it's really free. I found on en.wiki that you've right. Thanks for information. Herr Kriss 13:20, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for fixing the svg code of my image. This was first drawn in CorelDraw and then converted into svg and verified in Inkscape. Apparently Wikipedia software doesn't deal well enough with this format, whenever there are objects with holes in the picture files. Any suggestion on how to solve this problem in the future? Regards, Alvesgaspar 20:22, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Would you please clarify what kind of "holes" are you referring to? Sorry. --Fibonacci 08:55, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
    • I think I need your help again. The svg version of this image (here) does not shown correctly. The origin of the problem is in the colored rings (the "holes"), which are treated as filled circles by the wiki system, although everything seems correct in the svg application. Can you please help? I still do not know how to avoid the problem. Alvesgaspar 22:14, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:Maracuyá-2008-12-10.jpg[edit]

Hello. I just noticed that you had retouched my picture of a yellow passionfruit to make it sharper - in fact the original was taken under suboptimal lighting conditions.
However, the flesh of the fruit looks too dark in your version, almost to the point of resembling that of a banana passionfruit. Could you please modify it so that the flesh looks lighter? The other pictures in the article might give you a good indication of its true colour. Unfortunately I'm not skilled with the GIMP or Photoshop, so I cannot do the editing myself.

Thanks in advance. --Fibonacci (talk) 04:32, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Fibonacci!

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.

Possible copyright violation at File:Conway's soldiers.svg[edit]

Hi Fibonacci, I was looking through some math articles and noticed that your diagram File:Conway's soldiers.svg bears a very strong resemblence to the diagram at [3]. Although these are very simple diagrams, and strongly constrained by the problem under discussion, I'm concerned that the design choices borrowed here such as colors and line thickness rise above the threshold of originality, which would make this an illegal derivative work. Would you re-drawing this diagram in an original manner? Thank you. :-) Dcoetzee (talk) 03:31, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

French country gender map[edit]

Almost a year ago now, a user pointed out on the en:WP "Grammatical gender" article's Talk page (see here) that there is a mistake in this map. The United Kingdom is called "le Royaume-Uni" in French, and is therefore masculine in French, not feminine, as it is marked. While I realize that "la Grande-Bretagne" is a proper name for "Great Britain" in French, it actually is not a proper name for the whole country, as "Great Britain" does not include Northern Ireland, whereas "the United Kingdom" does. If you look at this article you will see from the first paragraph alone that French is just as strict as English in making this distinction.

Since I haven't a clue how to edit svg files, do you think you could change that one country's colour to green to indicate the name's French gender?

There is another thing you might consider: The map hasn't been updated to show the South Sudan (masculine, of course).
