Categories removal[edit]

Hi there! The removal of categories from the images you mention was, indeed, a little drastic, but take a look at the categories I removed. "Category:Female names"? "Category:People by alphabet"? What were these images doing in such broad categories?? I considered that the actors were best represented through their gallery page (and/or category), which could then be placed in the appropriate categories. I did check that this was the case, and placed some of the characters in Category:Charmed, which seems to have been the common thread for these people. Hope this is an okay explanation, and feel free to add better categories for the images. --Ranveig 16:42, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Language proficiency[edit]

Out of curiosity, care to add userboxes to your userpage indicating what languages you are proficient in? Cirt (talk) 01:48, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. No other languages? :P -- Cirt (talk) 07:16, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Flickr images[edit]

Hi. As a result of your request at Commons talk:Flickr images/reviewers, I have added you to the reviewers list. Please see the instructions at Commons:Flickr images/reviewers and add {{user trusted}} to your userpage. You can ask me if you need any help. Cheers, Giggy (talk) 06:15, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Civil Air Patrol images[edit]

In reply to User talk:Closeapple#CAP images: Per Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag and Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag, the U.S. gives no copyright interest in simple copies of 2-dimensional works, and Wikimedia doesn't recognize foreign laws that conflict with that. But for a similar reason, I would think Commons' idea of "authorship" is that of the person who created the original work, not the person who photographed it; after all, one cannot upload clothing patches themselves to the Internet, only photographs of them. --Closeapple (talk) 07:17, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

One more note on the PD-Art/PD-scan thing: The instructions say that the tags themselves are only supposed to for works in public domain, that are then photographed, then uploaded by someone other than the photographer. If the photographer is the uploader, that user should simply be using the appropriate PD tag that applies to the original work in the first place. That's probably what that uploader should have been doing for the government-created patches. For the novelty patches, his photograph (probably) neither adds nor subtracts from the original person's work either, but it's the original creator/copyright holder who has to give permission. --Closeapple (talk) 08:13, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Licenses[edit]

Hi, could you please recheck ALL your uploads to commons? I noticed that you tagged File:Mairead Nesbitt BN signing crop.jpg as being in the public domain. This is incorrect, the uploader expressly tagged it as being cc-by-sa on Wikipedia!!! We have enough copyright violations problems without users infringing each other copyright. Thanks. Lucasbfr (talk) 11:34, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks a lot :) Sorry for the yelling, you happened to be the second person today where I noticed a license discrepancy after a transwiki so I was slightly annoyed :)! Thx again! Lucasbfr (talk) 23:13, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Media Move Bot[edit]

Hello,

I just finished your application. You are now a approved user for the media move bot.

Best regards, Abigor talk 07:20, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Hello,
I don't really now how many times it runs, I think it is user activated. Here should be a better place to ask it :)
Best regards,
Abigor talk 10:47, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Re: Addition to bot?[edit]

It should be fixed now :-) Thanks, --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 13:30, 18 February 2009 (UTC)


Taurus Picture[edit]

Like File:Orbiting Carbon Observatory launch from Vandenberg.jpg need File:Top down view of Taurus XL carrying OCO.jpg a new Cpyright tag. Please chage the tag as uploader, thank you.--Uwe W. (talk) 18:01, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

File renaming[edit]

Thanks. --TcfkaPanairjdde (talk) 17:17, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Lori garver image[edit]

For the image of Lori Garver, I took the larger version you had uploaded and optimized the contrast and coloring. The coloring was nicer on the version I uploaded, but I like the larger resolution. So I think I fixed all that. Let me know what you think. I also saved the image at 95% JPG quality instead of 99% (that what I think it was to get to 3.38MB), and you cannot tell the difference, even fully zoomed in. Its worth the savings of 50% of the file size I think. I also repointed all the links to Lori_Garver.jpg instead of the one I uploaded. Thanks! Jonverve (talk) 13:38, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Re:File Names[edit]

Oh, I'm sorry. I was just uploading them with the name it was put under Flickr. Can you please show me an example of how I would do the description? Thank you. -- Ipodnano05 (talk) 22:32, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you. -- Ipodnano05 (talk) 06:22, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Aircraft by registration[edit]

I have noticed that some editors are removing categories from aircaft images. I have a problem related to the categorisation by registration. Dont have a problem with the registration category but removing the aircraft and operators cats from the images so it only has the registration makes it very difficult to find images. Is their somewhere on Commons to discuss these daft changes. Thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 19:05, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Photoshop[edit]

Hi Hunster. Do you have any tips on how to photoshop out watermarks? It's something I hope to learn. Best regards, Kanonkas // talk // e-mail // 03:32, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

NASA TV (Graphic Lab/Illustration workshop)[edit]

File:Ares mobile launcher with 7th segment.jpg[edit]

Hi Hunster! Would you mind moving File:Ares mobile launcher with 7th segment.jpg to File:Mobile Launcher assembly 15.jpg? I wanted to keep all images from the assembly in chronological order. Sincerely --myself488 (talk) 13:37, 26 January 2010 (UTC)


File:CAP_Stinson10A_N957DW_3TF_emblem.jpg and File:CAP_Stinson10A_N957DW.jpg[edit]

Hi Huntster, I noticed you uploaded these two files from Picasa. I've been reviewing Picasa files (see Commons:Picasa Web Albums files) and noticed that these two appear to have a noncommercial license at the source. I'm not sure whether this was an error on your part or if the original author modified their license setting (in which case the images would be okay) but because it wasn't verified by a trusted user at the time they may have to be deleted. Just letting you know. Dcoetzee (talk) 23:58, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Hey Huntster, just in case you don't check my talk page, I decided to take this one to Commons:Deletion requests/File:CAP_Stinson10A_N957DW.jpg and see what the community thinks. Dcoetzee (talk) 00:56, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Banned user[edit]

I'm not JA, i'm just one of the guys who were in contact with him more than a year ago, and i'm not banned. I've just moved on from all of these sites, pretty much all of the group. But policy says that i can create and use as many accounts as i want provided that i don't vote in elections. So stop reverting good changes, he doesn't like having those images here because certain people are targeting him in real life as well so just put them up for deletion. Had you uploaded something which contained your personal information, and were you disturbed in real life through the use of such data, you would probably ask someone to erase that something permanently. Ffdfd (talk) 17:43, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Righto- thank you for pointing that out. I was moving pictures, well, in an automatic fashion you might say, and I didn't thoroughly check the results. I'll check and tidy all the other stuff. cheerio. Hoodinski (talk) 09:45, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Files by Fale[edit]

Hi There! some time ago you answerd a question I had in the Village Pump. I had time to mark lots of files and create a deletion request but nothing seems to happen. Would you maybe like to write a comment here? Amada44 (talk) 07:54, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Sunsphere[edit]

I understand what you are talking about, but in this case I left those there because they show other features of Knoxville such as buildings, fountains, parks, etc. Xnatedawgx (talk) 20:20, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Removing {{no_permission}}[edit]

Hunster, please avoid removing "no permission" tags from files. These are an important factor in clearing the copyright status of files on Commons. If you remove these without following up on them, you just create repeated work for others to be done twice. -- User:Docu at 02:51, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

When you leave a message like that in the future, it would be nice to note *where* the error occurred. I don't recall removing any "no permission" tags without having a damn good reason for doing so. Huntster (t @ c) 04:50, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
It was on File:ECLIPSE1.JPG. MGA73 had to redo it. -- User:Docu at 05:09, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
(replying here, as you wish) Oh yes, that was an error on my part. I was talking to Geld about the images, but real life interceded and I was unable to follow through (and then lost the emails). MGA73 didn't redo any warnings; he *did* finish what I was unable to do. Funny, I recovered those emails two days ago. But that edit was five months ago...your timeliness in this pointless warning is about as bad as my timeliness in getting Geld's permission to OTRS! Huntster (t @ c) 06:20, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words[edit]

You should have posted them at the Village Pump.  :)
(Note: if you wish to reply, you might as well do it here--and I'll check it out.)

"I believe in this case starting your own wiki site might be the most appropriate solution."
I'm tending towards that as well, thought it'd be good to check out the several 1 000's listed on WikiIndex--though many of the checks will be only for a few seconds.

"I do agree with those who've said that what you are wanting to do doesn't really mesh well with what we're doing here,"
A lot of it doesn't, perhaps most of it: but certainly not all.

As for the nudes, this could be because there are a lot of people like me, or there maybe many files in many categories: eg Category:Bottles

Gosh, some people get so hung over nudity. Why don't they go to Conservapedia if they don't like it.

"If you did start your own wiki, you'd have complete control over what comes and goes, which should be very appealing given your goals."
True, but I might have even more control with a non-wiki website. Still, I like to have a few over to contribute, in which case I'd likely have to give them a fair amount of autonomy--which I don't mind--just don't mess with my pet articles and categories; but if I'm thinking that, so are likely others, which leads back to other sites. I've also thought of Limewire--unlike WC, I'm not all hung-up about sharing licensed stuff. Not once did I aggree to respect the copyrights of the images of Hustler when I bought an issue.  :D

"Plus, there are lots of folks who would be happy to provide technical help with setting the wiki up, both here and at various other Mediawiki sites (probably meta.wikimedia.org would probably be a good place to start). Good luck to you!"
Now that sounds encouraging; and thanks again.

Here are a few songs that I find uplifting.
Sook-Yin Lee's Beautiful--you might want to skip watching the span between 0:16 to 0:40 of the video.

'Lucklucky' Official Video - Veda Hille
(she seems pregnant in this video--but clothed), and

Au Revoir Simone All or Nothing (here's a live version--I understand that Moby's taken quite a liking to them).

Have a nice weekend.  :-D  Better than Hustler (talk) 19:40, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

File:Osvaldo Bayer.jpg[edit]

Hi Huntster. According to you, the OTRS was verified. Please add the ticket number. --Leyo 08:28, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi Leyo, to be honest, I've got no idea why I made this edit considering at that time, I had no access to OTRS. Further, I've now gone and checked OTRS and cannot locate anything specifically pertaining to that image or its uploader...the best I can find is a general statement by the San Martin press office stating that material on their sanmartin.gov.ar site is licensed under the GFDL (ticket 2008043010013425, which seems far too simplistic a solution). Needless to say, I'm scratching my head on this one. :/ Huntster (t @ c) 14:40, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your statement. However, I do not know what to do now. What would you suggest? Tag with “nopermission”? --Leyo 15:14, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Two options. One is to use the generic OTRS ticket I mentioned, and let the onus of proof lie with the San Martin website. (Also, it is entirely possible that the ticket came through another queue, but unlikely since I have access to permissions and photosubmissions.) The other is to tag with NPD. Since the file is not being used anywhere, deleting it won't adversely affect anything. The most appropriate and least sneaky route. Thoughts? Huntster (t @ c) 21:39, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
As I am not really experienced with OTRS, I find it diffucult to decide. We might just wait for a statement by the uploader (see User talk:Nikkeric2#Category:Items missing OTRS ticket ID). --Leyo 07:43, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I'll wait a week, and if nothing happens, I'll tag with NPD. No sense in keeping if status is questionable and uploader has abandoned it. Huntster (t @ c) 23:24, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Re: Sva logo stacked.jpg[edit]

Zapped the file. Looking at the ticket, it may be possible to get a real release from the copyright holder. Complaints about trademark issues isn't cause for a removal, but the lack of a release is..--Nilfanion (talk) 22:28, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Image BAS Trucks[edit]

Hi there! We've added an image of BAS Trucks for the page http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/BAS_Trucks. We're from the company and so we have the permission to use the image for the Wiki-page. We would like to add this picture http://www.arceau.nl/web/images/projecten/990404/bas01.jpg (this image is from origin from our website http://www.bastrucks.com).

We hope you will add our picture to our Wikipage. Thanks in advance.

Images licensing[edit]

I could move the images to en-wikipedia and make a case of fair use. But i just don't have the time right now. Sorry to see the images go they were very informative and educational. Quantanew (talk) 01:42, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Blanik image[edit]

The image of the Blanik File:CAP L-23 N381BA.jpg in Commons has been used in the English Wikipedia article on Gliding. This has been a featured article for four years and it is currently being reviewed en.wikipedia:Featured article review/Gliding/archive1 A query has arisen by a reviewer and I quote: "Source is a direct link to the image. Where can we verify federal authorship?" I guess they want to see it on the CAP's web-site but you may have another suggestion. Would you amend the information on the page to clarify/confirm beyond doubt that it is indeed Federal property? Thank you in anticipation. 80.177.0.93 12:05, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Replied at the FARC page. I don't care whether it is kept or deleted, though I believe the license to be accurate. Huntster (t @ c) 22:55, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

OTRS request[edit]

Greetings. I am wondering if you would be interested in performing an OTRS check for me. I'd like to know if there are any releases for images by Alex Sergeev or www.asergeev.com. Also, I'm skeptical of the OTRS located at File:CentralAvenueCornell2.jpg. Would you please check these out? Thanks! (I posted a request at Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard, but no one has taken up the request.--GrapedApe (talk) 02:31, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Please use lossless cropping tools[edit]

Regarding File:Crew Transport Vehicle at Edwards Air Force Base (1991).jpg: Please ensure that you are using a lossless cropping tool such as jpegtran, XnView or IrfanView. -- Common Good (talk) 19:27, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

As far as I know PSP is not capable to lossless crop an image. XnView is a small and easy to use program for such edits. -- Common Good (talk) 19:08, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
You can find the lossless crop this way: Tools > JPEG lossless transformations > crop -- Common Good (talk) 20:36, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Re: MotD choice[edit]

Hi Huntster, as you can see in the history of Template:Motd/2010-12-12, Pristurus chose the file. I suspect he chose the low resolution version because the main page feature has a limited size anyway and the loading time is less with that version, but you'll know if you ask him directly. Best regards Hekerui (talk) 13:23, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

/* Echeveria categories */ - A heads Up[edit]

Hi Hunster, I have added some more explanation to my Village Pump topic here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Echeveria_categories and would now appreciate some more input as I can't really proceed until I sort this out --Ciao, KK. (talk) 18:33, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

File:LincolnPlant1923.jpg[edit]

Can you tell me how you captured the higher-quality scan for this image? I though Google Books would only provide a set dpi. Thanks. Andrew Jameson (talk) 17:23, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Ooooh, clever. My opinion is that larger is probably better. You're typically using the image at a smaller size (in articles) anyway, and the larger size is accessed only by people who want to see the greater detail. Thanks. Andrew Jameson (talk) 19:33, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

File Tagging File:Abe-airport-1973.jpg[edit]

This image was from a scan I made from a 35MM slide that was one of a batch I purchased at an estate sale some years ago. I presume the original photographer is now dead, since I purchased it at a sale of belongings of his estate. With that sale, all rights to that slide transferred to me as I now own the 35mm slide as one of my possessions, and I put the appropriate permissions tag on the image when I uploaded it. Bwmoll3 (talk) 14:38, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

"...Copyright stays with the original author for life plus 70 years after first publication...." The author is dead, approximately 2003 when I bought his collection of 35mm slides at a public sale. I have no idea what his occupation was, and the slide was never published. Bwmoll3 (talk) 05:23, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
In addition, I think in your zeal to delete this image, you're missing the point. The fact is that the image performs a useful purpose in educating the reader about the article it is being used in, to illustrate the airport at a specific moment in time. Today, the facility is quite different after much modernization over the past 40 years since the slide was taken. The slide itself was not taken for financial gain, and in fact, is not being used for financial gain by its use in Wikipedia. The photo was taken by an ametuer photographer, as a review of the slides in the tray purchased by me are of local objects and buildings in the Allentown PA, area. The original photographer did not copyright any of these slides when they were taken, unlike the artist who you stated painted paintings for his livelihood. In your logic, any photo taken by anyone for any reason is a copyrighted article, and that is not what copyright law is about or it's intention. In addition, your logic could be extended to childhood scribbles made in a student art class as copyrighted. Bwmoll3 (talk) 05:44, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Closure of file deletion discussion[edit]

See discussion at Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/User_problems#Closure of file deletion discussion. Snowmanradio (talk) 10:58, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Not the least bit interested. If an admin has a problem with it, they can let me know. Huntster (t @ c) 11:19, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

please wait with uploading the OR video[edit]

They want to tweak it first before "publishing". If you end up uploading, before seeing this, I will hold off on putting in the article. Just think this is the reasonable thing since we just got the permission a few hours ago and they are acting in good faith. And probably the changes are to improve the content of the video. Sorry for the flutter. At least it shows people care! TCO (talk) 22:51, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

I just woke up, so there's no danger of me uploading anything. Didn't yet know that they had given permission. Huntster (t @ c) 22:59, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

showtime![edit]

(dupe of commons message)

I have the new video from Oregon. Viewed it and it is fine. (It's a little long, but the stuff I care about is front-loaded so it's easy for my reader and I'll call out features to look for in the caption. And obviously now that we have it anyone do derivitve work. But I'd like the full play for base file please.) Here is the youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeTVghxdZwI (will send you a talk page note as well. but just commons this time.)

Really appreciate your expertise in the conversion and all. Please come over to the "other side" and give me a hand if there are any playback issues when put in article. Just want to make sure the whole bit of work finally delivers a result.

BTW, this is really kinda cool. They were very up for the deal and kinda think we are a big deal. I kinda think they are kinda right! Anyhow, positive interaction...and you know they have more stuff on their site! TCO (talk) 22:53, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

TCO (talk) 23:39, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Okay, file has been uploaded to File:Oregon's Native Turtles.ogv. I've only added a basic category, so I'll let you categorise by species or however else you want to do it. Huntster (t @ c) 05:44, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the work and for being so nice to the donor. I will add the cats. Technical problem. neither myself nor my co-editor can watch the movie. Just get a blank screen and it does not run.TCO (talk) 07:13, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
There is no reason that should happen. What browser are you using? If IE, try using FireFox...IE is known for, well, not supporting much of anything, though the built-in Mediawiki player should take care of that. Take a look at Commons:Video#Playing videos and Commons:Media help, see if the answer lies on those pages. Could be you are just missing a single component that isn't auto-installing. Huntster (t @ c) 08:58, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
Can you please come over to the other side and see the talk page discussion? We've had three people try it and in three browsers and can't get good play. I'm not concerned about me seeing it, but my readers. (Surely more than 50% of the readers use IE anyhow, but we could not get it in Chrome or Firefox either). Maybe there is some kludge you can do to get it viewable by bulk of readers? Sorry to bug you and I know you don't have to do anything. I just want to figure out how to get it article, viewable. Anything else we can try? Youtube embed (since we have copyright agreement on content)? TCO (talk) 18:30, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes, this is an issue with Commons, but there's not really much that can be done. We can't help that Microsoft refuses to make a robust browser, nor that Ogg Theora is really the only option for free formats out there. I wish that MediaWiki would add a warning of some kind for IE users that they may encounter problems when viewing OGV files. In any case, it doesn't work for me in IE 8, even with the VLC and Java plugins. Hopefully the new IE 9 will work better. Huntster (t @ c) 04:08, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Why can't we just use Windows Media Player format or something? Why does it have to be some OGG? I mean I know having no advertising. But software? I mean we didn't build the computers ourselves! And I bet the servers have some purchased software on them. What's the object to just using a more industry normal video format? The content is convertable anyway (as we've shown). Not beating on you honest. I'm whining, like a puppy, but not beating. I'm not into the Mac-Windows-Linux wars, I just want to get a slick article that is easy to ingest.TCO (talk) 04:44, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

OK...I'm gonna stop asking for a fix to something we can't fix! I'll send a nice note to the donor. Don't worry, I won't throw Wiki under the bus. Will just say that we're hosting the media on our files and that it's available for view. But that we're holding off on embedding as there are some viewers with browser issues (I'll throw the browser people under the bus). But that I'm going to call attention to the content and link. (which is true...it really is nice content for the first half of the video to show some things for me.) You were so poised and good with the donor, want to keep everything positive and make it look like we are using their stuff. TCO (talk) 04:53, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
It's because all the more widely supported formats use proprietary technology for compression and playback. Since we only use freely available formats (well, for the most part...technically gif and jpg aren't free, but those are a bit of a different situation), we have to use OGG and OGV. The hope is that the formats will mature and be more useful.
To be honest, I wouldn't even worry about sending a message to Oregon. You never know when it will be useful in the future, or if someone else may determine it does serve a good function in that or another article (or an article in another language). Huntster (t @ c) 05:27, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Sundancer Model.jpg[edit]

Is there any way I can save the image (maybe if I upload it to wikipedia instead)? Can you link me to where Commons states "As a model photographed in the United States, this is copyrighted.".--Craigboy (talk) 03:30, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

"It has no utilitarian function and exists solely to portray the appearance of the object." These two things are kind of the same, the image portrays how the crew quarters would be (which is different than ISS or Skylab had), demonstrates the interior layout, demonstrates location of maneuvering thrusters. The image of Sundancer provided by Bigelow features the Russian probe and cone docking mechanism, which the module will most likely no longer use (since its no longer intended to be serviced by Soyuz/Progress).--Craigboy (talk) 04:04, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

It appears you are right, if I moved some of the images to en than what would I put in the copyright description indicating that the image is copy righted due to it being a model?--Craigboy (talk) 04:38, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
What about the Alpha and Beta Complex modules?--Craigboy (talk) 07:35, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
There's only one for Alpha, not Beta.--Craigboy (talk) 09:38, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Is that a policy of en?--Craigboy (talk) 13:55, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
I know you're probably sick of me bothering you by now but is there anyway you can make a exception for an image of the Complex Beta?--Craigboy (talk) 12:03, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Thank you--Craigboy (talk) 10:03, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Re: File movers[edit]

Thanks for adding auto-categorization to {{User filemover}}. To be honest, I never even thought about it until you've mentioned it. Guess it would have saved me a lot of work. Also sorry about editing your user page, I was just going about adding people to Category:Commons file movers. However there are still more people who have not added {{User filemover}} to their user pages. For users without ubx/babel boxes, should I just go ahead and add it, or wait for them to add themselves? —stay (sic)! 06:52, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Acceptable image?[edit]

I'm wondering if this image from Flickr is acceptable to be added on Commons? I've read through Commons:Photographs of identifiable people and I couldn't find anything objectionable per COM:PEOPLE#Examples. Since I'm not the person who took this image, would it be okay if I was to, say, upload the file? —stay (sic)! 04:50, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

For moving the Lunar Electric Vehicle page to Space Exploration Vehicle.--Craigboy (talk) 22:55, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Image Concern[edit]

Its an image of the international Low Impact Docking System (iLIDS)/ Nasa Docking System (NDS) (the caption on their website even says it is) which is a property of NASA, their gallery even includes other NASA photos. Even if the image was of the International Docking System Standard (which doesn't exist, its just a list of requirements) it would be in the public domain.

I usually try to include the NASA ID, I did not know there was a template, I'll try to use it in the future.--Craigboy (talk) 01:56, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Re:Space Shuttle Enterprise[edit]

Thanks, that did confuse me for a moment, as you can see from the page history. I thought the upload-wizard didn't correctly apply the categories at first, until I looked at the history myself. I went and read the Category guidelines, though, and saw that putting things in a category *and* the parent category is a no-no, so I'll know for next time! One question though: Though the pics were taken at Udvar-Hazy, that is incidental at best to the focus of the pics themselves, to wit, the wing panels. Would it be better to put these only into the main Enterprise category? Or is most-specific always preferred? Thanks for the message on my page! ☢ Prompt Critical (talk) ☢ 17:29, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps Category:Space Shuttle Columbia disaster? It already contains File:Impact-test.jpg which is similar in purpose. ☢ Prompt Critical (talk) ☢ 17:56, 11 June 2011 (UTC)


Logic[edit]

We differ in logic at Category:Sea Launch Commander (ship, 1997). No problem at all, as I learned when I whas a softeware programmer. I myself even think about to start the series with the IMO number, than the country of built, the year of completion, the type, followed by the data at the time the picture was taken: the company, the country and the name. Up to now we start with the coutry of built. The shipyard can best be categorised at the IMO number, as ships can change their names very often, the IMO number is the same during the lifetime. The reason of my comment here is another: you used DEFAULTSORT, as I thought that it only works for sorting. The category is already sorted as Sea Launch Commander, so what is the use here? --Stunteltje (talk) 17:39, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes, quite a lot of stuff can be added to the IMO category, I guess country and year of build could be added to it. As for Defaultsort, I do that more because I don't trust the software to properly take care of everything on its own. I recall problems in the past, so I prefer forced behaviour.

1824 Flag[edit]

I noticed on your user page that you move free media from Wikipedia to the Commons. An svg version of the 1824 flag of the Texas Revolution already exists in Wikipedia, File:Texas Alamo Flag.svg, and I've tried to move it into Wikimedia Commons Category:Historical flags of Texas, without luck. I created an svg of the flag myself before finding that someone else already has, and since he released it to the public domain, I don't see a need to upload my version. It does belong in the Historical flags of Texas category with the others, though. I'm hoping you could move this file for me.

Thanks again for all of your help.--Glasshouse (talk) 21:55, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Notes on NOAA[edit]

Hi Huntster,
Please avoid moving around the ships without any prior discussion. --  Docu  at 12:11, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Hi Docu,
Is there anything in particular that is wrong with these changes? Just trying to create a bit of standardisation with the naming scheme in this corner of the tree. They were all over the place. Huntster (t @ c) 12:13, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Most were in the same form as NOAA R 552 John N. Cobb (ship, 1950). Not sure why you moved them around. --  Docu  at 12:17, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
As I said, I was standardising the names to those used by the vast majority of ships operated by the Uniform Services of the United States, of which NOAA is a part. The names are not "R 552 John N. Cobb", simply "John N. Cobb", with a hull number of "R 552". I don't do anything in a haphazard fashion, and believed this was the best way to represent the category names. I know there is some discussion to transfer all the categories away from "USS", etc, so I have no problem if the "NOAAS" (NOAA Ship) prefix is eventually removed, but we're not there yet IIRC. Huntster (t @ c) 12:29, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Additionally (sorry, forgot to include this in the earlier post), this is the format used on the en.wiki articles, and on many of the other language wikis out there. While, of course, those titles have no bearing on titles here, I do feel it is nice to have some degree of synchronicity between the various sister projects. Huntster (t @ c) 12:35, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
I understand your point of view, even if I don't necessarily share it. I think it's frequently a good idea to keep at least redirects from the titles in use at one of the sister projects. The problem with solutions found there is that they don't necessarily scale well. AFAIK at least English language Wikipedia uses less frequently prefixes than they used to (e.g. JSDFS), possibly because they aren't in general use either. --  Docu  at 06:18, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
As I said, I don't care if the prefixes are used, but the names previously used are highly non-standard and quite frankly look a visual mess. What is wrong with "Name (R ###)", without the prefix? Huntster (t @ c) 06:51, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Somehow it could make one think it's a naval vessel with just "R 552" painted on it.
BTW, I did hesitate between "NOAA R552" or "NOAA R-552" and the above ("NOAA R 552"). If you prefer, we could drop the space. The advantage of this solution is similar to the one for subcategories at Fishing vessels by license number: it allows to identify the ship and find its vessel category when viewing the image. --  Docu  at 05:17, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Forgive me, I'm not sure what you're referring to exactly. You mean to use a category name like "NOAA R 552"? As it is, the format is a bit unwieldy to browse. These vessels' names are painted on the hull as well, and they are referred to as such (not by the less-well-known registry number). Again, these are naval vessels of the United States...they just aren't warships. I see no reason to not treat them as we do all other such registered vessels, just without the "NOAAS" prefix, as I know that's a currently contentious issue, and to be honest, not at all necessary for these. Huntster (t @ c) 06:35, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Whoops, as to your specific question, the registry probably should be kept as it typically appears on the hull, with a space, but it's not that big a deal. As most U.S. naval vessels have a dash in the registry, I wouldn't be upset if these reflected the same. But I do strongly feel the category names should use a similar format as the other U.S. ships, just without the prefix (if that's desired). Huntster (t @ c) 06:40, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

The nospam trout[edit]

Huntster, you know I like you, and I'm not trying to be nasty, but this is hardly defensible on the grounds that we should all proofread what we paste right after we copy it. We are talking about a single character vanishing. Certainly, pasting in an email address is something we do quickly, and tend not to check to see if what we just copied, pasted exactly the same. We trust that it does, because it always does.

And I'm not trying to dump on a single editor. This is something we all should have noticed and fixed, hence the village pump trouting. But perhaps I'm being a bit emotional. I am still very cross at the thought of so many images being lost, plus my own issues. I waited more than a year for Mark Beaumont to finish his Americas ride and send me images. He is hard to get in touch with, but he finally did, and I sent him the wrong email address. Embarrassing and heartbreaking at once. I'm sorry to be so upset. I should be more considerate of other's feelings. Best wishes, and no hard feelings I hope. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 06:10, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Super Guppy[edit]

The issue is that Category:N941NA (aircraft) and Category:NASA Super Guppy Turbine refer to the same object, so one must go (or redirect to the other). I chose to preserve the first for consistency with other categories for individual aircrafts. Also note that there is no reason for Category:N941NA (aircraft) to be a sub-category of Category:F-GEAI (aircraft) instead of Category:Aero Spacelines Super Guppy Turbine.

As you can see these edits were made for a reason. Next time you disagree with a change please discuss it instead of simply reverting it. I'll let you fix the categories. Bomazi (talk) 17:47, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Do you know of anyway of finding out when this picture was "published"?

A friend wants to use it for a FA attempt. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Chedzilla (talk) 22:43, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

I know the horse lived from 1900 to 1923, but I cannot verify when it was published. I personally believe it must have been published in that time period, but cannot prove it, and further cannot prove *where* it was first published (the first 9 years of its life were spent in the UK). Unfortunately I don't really know anything about this topic, so I don't know where or whom you might speak to that might have records. Perhaps http://www.arabianhorses.org ?

File:USS Gerald R. Ford island installation (130126-N-ZZ999-001).jpg[edit]

I wanted to let you know I tagged this image as a copyright violation. The source notes the image is "courtesy Huntington Ingalls Industries/Released". It was not taken by a member of the US Navy. There are multiple other images available at that site that are in fact taken by members of the US Navy (example). I recommend using one of those. Thanks, --Hammersoft (talk) 17:06, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

I distinctly remember a DR that dealt with this situation, in which the outcome was decided that credit lines in that format (U.S. Navy photo courtesy Huntington Ingalls Industries/Released) meant that the latter had released rights to the former, but apparently I didn't save that case file, and cannot find it now. Ah well. Perhaps I can locate it later. Huntster (t @ c) 00:51, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
If you do find it, please drop me a note to let me know. :) All the best, --Hammersoft (talk) 03:33, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, now I'm dealing with some images uploaded by User:Matanya, taken from the Navy's Flickr account. I'm leaving a message now...this may become a problem since many folk assume that if the license is CC-BY on a government Flickr account, it is automatically acceptable, without looking at the byline. :/ Huntster (t @ c) 03:48, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I haven't seen the US Navy's flickr feed, but if an image is being posted by them on their own feed and they are tagging it with a CC license that is compatible with us, I think we can safely ignore the byline in that case. The problem with the images on their navy.mil site is that when the images come from another source, they just say "released". That doesn't mean anything vis-a-vis the license. --Hammersoft (talk) 15:04, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
You know, that is a good point...it means the onus is on the military service. I just realised that the images on the Navy site are emailed in to a single point (navymedia@navy.mil), and then selected to be posted on the site. The remaining issue is that the Flickr feed uses the CC-by-3.0 license (I suppose they've not gotten the memo that Flickr allows for Gov PD), which is obviously incorrect considering U.S. Gov images are public domain. I'm wondering if this issue should be raised elsewhere to gain a consensus going forward, so there is less confusion. Huntster (t @ c) 02:30, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
It might do to start a discussion. I see possibly four cases:
  1. Images posted to navy.mil marked as being done by a member of the US Navy are obviously PD-Gov.
  2. Images posted to navy.mil not so marked as (1) above, but courtesy of somewhere else are always tagged as "released" which means nothing; we usually delete these on sight.
  3. Images posted to their flickr feed which are by a member of the US Navy and tagged with a Commons compatible CC license are obviously tagged incorrectly on the flickr feed. If used here, the license should be PD-gov.
  4. Images posted to their flickr feed which are not by a member of the US Navy and tagged with a Commons compatible CC license can be uploaded here with the same license as indicated on the Flickr feed.
Thoughts? --Hammersoft (talk) 16:59, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

On models...[edit]

Hi Hunster, from your comment at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Fiat 880 DT tractor.jpg, I gather you have an interest in models (or the outcomes of related discussions) and are something of a layperson with regards to their copyright. I tried to assemble thoughts and support at User:Elcobbola/Models and I was wondering whether you’d be interested in giving me feedback. I’m largely hoping to learn whether or not you feel it is clear/understandable/accessible/etc., especially to someone who may only have a middling familiarity with copyright. Of course, any other comments—good or bad—would be welcome. Эlcobbola talk 20:00, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the note Elcobbola, I'll check it out and get back to you. I'm confident on most copyright issues, but didn't want to comment on that case as models are not in my field of comfort. I definitely think more consolidated, focused guides like this need to be made, for the sake of future DRs and for an easier time handling mass deletions.

BLITS 300c target.gif

There is this Russian laser target which is tumbling as all passive things do, then it got slapped by Chinese debris a few days ago, and spins a bit faster now and is in 'at least two pieces' anyhow, I was doodling and drew this, it's a cropped version and I could probably do a reasonable short video sort of thing, or just this, either is good. I don't even think there is an article for it anywhere though. But maybe a junk article ? I don't know. Maybe this one goes to the vid if a vid were to be made. Penyulap 17:30, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Oh if you use Internet explorer, this pic sucks, as it is slowed down too far afaik. Penyulap 17:32, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Oh Pen, that is a fantastic representation of BLITS. As far as I know, there is no article yet on it, but when I have some time, I'll try to write one on en.wiki (I am absolutely swamped with backlog work right now). Honestly, I don't know that a video is even necessary...this GIF works perfectly well in Firefox and Chrome, and at least for me, runs at a very acceptable pace in IE 9 (will be installing 10 soon, will test it there as well). I'll also add appropriate categories later on. Huntster (t @ c) 19:59, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
sweeet. (I still feel guilty about the molinyas I haven't sketched yet) glad I'm not the only one who likes it :D
Makes my day. Though I don't much care about en.wiki SF anymore, the ISS can rot, and the picture situation is just plain stupid. The chinese station has two pics available from two wiki artists, but W:OPSEK is fair use because nobody can draw it ? whatever.
But every now and then I get to sketching parts of space and stations, some control panel like they had in the 2010 space odyssey Leonov, and something like a keno examining it with it's own illumination, and oh I'll have to show you sometime, its only tiny, but it looks kindof like the keno has personality. Penyulap 20:17, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Hah, I do kind of wish the kenos had some limited artificial intelligence rather than being just a remote control device, might have made things more interesting (such as them randomly watching crew members instead of Eli being presented a bit pervy). Huntster (t @ c) 23:21, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Article Feedback[edit]

You may remember that back in January we talked about the possibility of enabling AFT for Commons images. I've finally written up an RFC on enabling it - would you mind taking a look before I make it public and start inviting comments? The draft proposal is at User:Andrew Gray/feedback. Thanks, Andrew Gray (talk) 11:51, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Now moved to a formal RFC: Commons:Requests for Comment/Feedback. Thanks! Andrew Gray (talk) 20:03, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Re File:TS Matthew (2004) rain contour map.gif[edit]

Hey there; I saw your edit on my watchlist. Just a brief explanation – it's generally accepted on most WPs that the filled-in black version should be used in favour of other versions of the file; hence, I'm trying to standardize usage across all wikis so that these files (note the comment I made, "please redirect file to aforementioned one after deletion") can be used even when the original file does not exist. I'm not sure if I'm being clear here...I'm getting rather tired (it's nearly 10:00 pm, geez, I should go sleep!) though I'll clarify if needed. Thanks. :) HF (talk) 01:50, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Stay on target.gif[edit]

Hi Huntster, there are some exceptions to the rule, we have a few or should I say, we had a few and still do have a few, videos of Soyuz launches on commons from which I had chosen to make the image File:Stay on target.gif. When my connection is a bit better and/or I'm on the right machine to look for the actual video and look at it's name I can add it, but there are so few videos on commons like that from the period you may well spot it first, I think it is one of the first two of these. Penyulap 22:03, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Pen, I'm not sure what you mean by exceptions to the rule. If we have videos of Russian launches created by a NASA TV crew, those are fine. But the docking video is straight from the Soyuz spacecraft, which is Russian-owned, and thus Russian-copyrighted.
Now, specifically regarding the above videos, the first two are not acceptable since at the very least the in-cockpit video is Russian, not NASA (and given the video itself, I suspect the entire thing is Russian which was rebroadcast by NASA). I'm going to nominate those two for deletion, but not speedy. The third video, on the other hand, very much looks like a NASA TV videographer's work, especially since there is no in-cockpit video, so I would consider it okay. Huntster (t @ c) 22:16, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

I've included those in the request, so they can be examined as well, I don't think there is a need for separate DR's, as the same person can do all of them. I haven't looked at the third, feel free to strike or delete the text of my comment on the DR, I trust what you say there.

Hmm, such a shame about the whole project, there were such high hopes in so many ways, the people who wanted to help with the technical stuff, and my drawings and all, and the project is basically stuffed. Meh what can you do, it is so much easier to build a new site. Penyulap 23:07, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

ELT Search.jpg[edit]

Thanks for marking my photo for deletion, as I didn't know that type of license was prohibited. I'm rather new to wikipedia and the commons, and I was wondering if it would be permissible to upload this photo on wikipedia instead of the commons. I uploaded it because the original image of the cadets with an L-Per was taken down, leaving a broken link on the Civil Air Patrol page. After reading through the policy for wikipedia, I'm not sure whether this would constitute fair-use. Br100x (talk) 15:58, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Category question[edit]

Hi Huntster.

As you likely know, I'm a newbie at doing much on Wikimedia. So rather than do something silly, would prefer to ask for some guidance.

With the SpaceX en:Falcon 9 v1.1 so very different from the en:Falcon 9 v1.0, I think it might make sense to create a Wikimedia files category for each, and make them each a subcat of the current/existing Falcon 9 cat on WIkimedia. Then, the F9 Flight 1–F9 Flight 5 cats, would ostensibly go under the v1.0 cat, while F9 Flight 6 would go under the v1.1 cat. Pros? Cons? What do you think? N2e (talk) 10:01, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
