Thanks for uploading Image:Ariel_Garten_Playing_Quintephone_at_ICMC2007imgp7900cpq.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one.

Hello, Glogger!

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.

I've updated the categories; Thanks for letting me knowGlogger (talk) 17:41, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Photo challenge...[edit]

Hi.

Your latest posts are very cool but GIF are not really pictures and should be removed from the challenge and I think you may choose the best of the series : only one of the angle grinder and only one of the abakographic.

Smiley.svg Thank you a lot. --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 01:45, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

I got rid of 2 of the 3 grinder images (picked the best one) as suggested. I also got rid of some of the abakographic images.

I thought that the GIF photographs illustrate the concept of "Lights in motion" in long exposure photography and also there is some encyclopedic content there that shows an important principle, and educates people about how long-exposure photography works, and how lights-in-motion leave behind a trace of light, especially evident in Darkpainting Sightpainting Surveillance and Sousveillance.gif which shows the process of inverse lightpainting and the way that the light leaves behind a trace when it is in motion, and how the trace shows what the surveillance camera can see. Glogger (talk) 04:39, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Please see the discussion at Commons talk:Photo challenge#Moving pictures (and earlier ones about videos). I don't think it is fair on the other participants to start accepting video/animated-gif part way through the challenge. If it was open to video images (or animations) then the challenge theme should have stated this at the start. I agree with Llann Wé², please could you remove the animated gifs. Also consider making them in a standard video format for Commons since animated gifs really only belong on social media and aren't a professional video format. -- Colin (talk) 10:01, 11 October 2014 (UTC)


If GIFs have no place in any quality educational publication (like Wikipedia) and belong only in social networking, what should we be using in Wikipedia to express concepts like lights-in-motion? Should these image be deleted from Wikimedia or replaced with something in a "modern video format"? https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Eye_dilate.gif https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cycloid#mediaviewer/File:Cycloid_f.gif https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed-ball#mediaviewer/File:Speedball_super-solo.gif https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed-ball#mediaviewer/File:Speedball_match_simple.gif https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed-ball#mediaviewer/File:Speedball_match_double.gif

I think there should be a place for GIF images. It is not really a movie format, but is useful in images where most of the content is static, but some small part of it moves, such as lights in motion, or the pupil of an eye in motion while the rest remains static.

I actually do see a lot of GIF pictures in Wikipedia, such as the main first (lede) image in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cycloid

How can that be replaced by "modern video formats" (e.g. so they play when the page is viewed, without requirements of an external program)?

I'd agree that in print media there's no capacity for this, but Wikipedia should encourage images that explain concepts, such as something moving, such as lights moving.

Should we also delete these from Wikipedia: The last 3 images in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed-ball http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A*_search_algorithm#mediaviewer/File:Astar_progress_animation.gif http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A*_search_algorithm#mediaviewer/File:A*_Search_Example_on_North_American_Freight_Train_Network.gif

Photo challenge 2...[edit]

Hi Glogger.

This is a photo challenge not a gallery so :

  • Please 1 : choose one the best of your similar pictures and remove the other because we don't need so many pics so similar.
  • Please 2 : can you make shorter captions because with the gallery mode choosen we can't see all the pic while passing mouse on it (and we need to click on to display image to see if the dates and the autor match with the rules).

Could be very kind, Smiley.svg Thank you. --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 22:15, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

I second Llann Wé²'s request. Your images are verging on self-promotion/advertising. Many of the images show the same equipment. This isn't a gallery nor are images judged for their educational value -- we are trying to create images that are artistically interesting as a challenge for photographers. Please select just a few images that you feel are great. You've been asked several times now. If you don't show some restraint, we may need to cull the images or consider whether you should participate in future. Try to remember that overloading the challenge will only create ill-feeling among the reviewers who will grow weary of the similar images, and this fatigue is unfair on other nominations. Reviewers only get three votes to share among everyone's images. It is unfair to ask them to use them up deciding between your pictures. It also reduces the chance that any one of your images will get sufficient votes. -- Colin (talk) 12:59, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

OK, I removed a bunch of the images and shortened the titles of the remaining. I notice, also, that many people are uploading groups of similar images, Telus Spark Ring of Light 1, Telus Spark Ring of Light 2, and Telus Spark Ring of Light 3, for example, which appear to depict the same subject matter, i.e. very little variation. Glogger (talk) 04:14, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Smiley.svg Thank you a lot Glogger. Very kind of you.
I asked the same to a pair of users and I'm expecting them to remove some before I'll have to do it but I'm not sure I'll remove the ones they'd like to.
Have a good week and go on with making so interesting pictures, they are cool.
--Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 04:48, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Glogger. I have asked the person who uploaded the Telus Spark Ring to also show some restraint. This is the problem: we see other people uploading several of similar images and so think this is ok. But if everyone did it... Well, if you review 100+ images you will know that it is time-consuming and you become grateful if someone selects the best first. The rules say "There is no limit on the number of submissions per user, but please choose from among your best and most varied images." -- perhaps we need to repeat this on each theme page too :-). Nobody reads instructions... The subject of your images is insteresting and novel, and I do think you will get a better voting result from your smaller selection. Please vote next month (though you can't vote on your own pics). Thanks. -- Colin (talk) 08:35, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
