en:Devils Tower National Monument[edit]

Hi, Hydrargyrum. May I ask why you put Image:Devils Tower 18A.JPG into Category:Basalt, please? As far as I know, the monument has no significant outcroppings of basalt. The tower, despite its superficial similarity to columnar basalt, is phonolite porphyry, according to en:Devils Tower National Monument. The article does not mention basalt. The joint scale is quite different. My memory is that the columns are ~10 m v. ~1 m that is more typical of basalt.

Also, I thought that items are not to be put into a category that contains a category into which it is also placed. Here, I'm referring to Category:United States National Monuments containing Category:Devils Tower National Monument. Won't the reader looking for Image:Devils Tower 18A.JPG find it by going to Category:Devils Tower National Monument, the subcategory? Searching through Category:United States National Monuments seems unlikely to me, whereas adding the image to Category:United States National Monuments increases the category clutter making it difficult to hunt through images that depict U.S. National Monuments in general. What am I missing? Best wishes, Wsiegmund 13:25, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

I stand corrected. I've moved it from Category:Basalt to Category:Phonolite. Very nice photo, by the way.
When I stumbled on the image while performing category maintenance, it had only categories "GFDL | CC-BY-2.5 | Self-published work", which by now contain, collectively, hundreds of thousands of entries. (For example, as I write this, the GFDL category alone contains 158,330 links.) That kind of catch-all category is hardly useful if one is looking for an image in a particular category, and the search capability on the Wiki databases is, at present, pretty miserable, even using the Google site search that was recently added. By selectively adding a few category links to each image, it's less likely to get lost in the crowd. If links start to get too numerous on certain Category pages, they can always be pruned back later.
I just spent some time working on the Cameras category, looking for orphan image files. I found well over 100 that were clearly images of cameras, but if one had searched on them by Category:Cameras, one wouldn't have found them. I also found some duplicate images, clearly the result of people re-uploading the same image because the lack of linking makes existing images in Wikimedia difficult, if not impossible, to find. Your image happened to be used in an article, but what does one do if the image isn't used anywhere? It then becomes and orphan. --Quicksilver@ 14:26, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
Hi, Quicksilver. Thank you for your reply and your kind words about my photo. As I'm sure you are aware, the editors on Commons have a variety of views on how images should be indexed. A tiny plurality favor, as I do, the use of normal pages. See Commons:Images on normal pages or categories:Vote. The images you categorized are on the normal page Devils Tower National Monument (Commons). Images are rarely removed from such pages and it is on my watch list. Devils Tower National Monument (Commons) is in Category:United States National Monuments. The picture summary links to Devils Tower National Monument (Commons), so that editors like yourself can see that it is indexed. I mention this to indicate that I share your concern about orphan images and I have addressed it effectively, I think.

Your reply misses the point of the question that I raised earlier, to wit, why put an image in both a category and the category that contains it? Thank you for your patience with me. (When I was very new, I put one of User:Angela's categories in COM:DEL. Having read Commons:Images on normal pages or categories:Vote, I have a better understanding of the diversity of opinion on this matter.) BTW, I don't object to others categorizing my images, as long as it isn't excessive. The addition of Category:Phonolite was good, I thought. Best wishes, Wsiegmund 16:38, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

HMS Hermes vs HMS Ark Royal[edit]

Hi. You uploaded new versions of the two USN photos File:HMS Ark Royal USS Nimitz Norfolk2 1978.jpeg and File:HMS Ark Royal USS Nimitz Norfolk1 1978.jpeg. However, the USN WRONGLY identifies the carrier as HMS Hermes (R12). Date and carrier are wrong. The carrier depicted is clearly HMS Ark Royal (R09). Hermes is easily identifiable by the deck-edge elevator on the port side at the end of the angled deck. Ark Royal had both elevators on the midship line, as clearly visible on one of the photos. Please remove your speedy deletion request immediately! Greetings Cobatfor (talk) 20:57, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

To see that the ship is really Ark Royal and about the correctness of the date see here [2] and here [3] (page 50). Cobatfor (talk) 18:15, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

A file uploaded by you is under deletion request[edit]

A file (or files) you uploaded from the Remote Sensing Tutorial from NASA Goddard Space Center has been tagged for deletion since that tutorial acknowledges that not all of the used images are actually NASA. (See here the overview of the tutorial). The group deletion request is here. Comments would be welcomed.--Garrondo (talk) 11:48, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

File:Shocked_quartz.jpg was created by Alan Hildebrand (as you note), who is not a NASA employee, but a professor from Canada. This means the image is not in the public domain. I listed both that and File:Shocked_quartz.gif as copyvios for speedy deletion. If you want to contact Dr. Hildebrand to get a free license for the image, please feel free! Thanks!
