Did you notice?[edit]

That I commented on your global warming VISC? Cheers, -- Slaunger 20:58, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Commons:Top 200 Images that should use vector graphics by usage[edit]

Any chance you could regenerate this? Many of the images now have vector versions (hurrah). I'd do it myself if I knew how! Cheers, Stannered 16:02, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Do you know if there's a way that updates to this page could happen automagically? It would save having to bother you each time there were a large number of images successfully converted… Cheers, Stannered 09:19, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
The problem is that the code is still a bit buggy. I'm not confident enough in it to run unattended (it gags on some unicode or if it gets a bad response) so I am not running it automatically. Now that I know that it's useful to someone else I'll try and find some time to improve it. BTW I'm a fan of the Vectorization efforts on commons, so if you have and suggestions for more functionality etc.. do tell me.

--Inkwina (talk contribs) 12:27, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Could you please update it again ? I'm quite lost about what I already did and what still remains to do.
BenAllard (talk) 21:23, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
I find Commons:Top 200 Images which have a Vector version available by usage very useful too. Could you update it again ? Fgrosshans (talk) 10:15, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Valued images evaluation[edit]

Dear Inkwina,

This is a standard message to the 18 different users who so far have been involved in testing Valued images candidates as either a nominator, reviewer or project editor. We are interested in hearing what you think about the project and what your positive and negative experiences have been. We would be grateful if you would voice your opinion here. Thank you,

-- Slaunger 19:17, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Category:Silhouettes of aircrafts[edit]

I noticed that you nominated to have the category moved. I found another 12 so I nominated them all and listed them for discussion at Commons:Categories for discussion/Current requests/2008/04/Category:Silhouettes of aircrafts. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather 00:17, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Help needed with the Valued images project[edit]

As you may have seen, this project is going live for nominations on 1 June, 2008 at 0:00 UTC. Before then, there are a few things to be finished off, and any help you can give will be welcome. The latest discussion is at Commons talk:Valued images candidates#Open action items for Valued images.

When the project launches publicly on 1 June, it will need reviewers who are able to jump in quickly and provide prompt feedback. During those critical first few weeks it will be important to have a decent number of reviewers who are prepared to put in the effort to make sure the first nominations are well-reviewed, as that will set the standard for the future.

Would you help, please, with the final tasks now, and also pledge your help with some reviewing on 1 June and thereafter? --MichaelMaggs 17:08, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

deprecated function in your monobook.js[edit]

Dear user, I noticed that you use the includePage function in your monobook.js page.

This function is now obsolete, as the importScript function was introduced with rev:35064 to the MediaWiki Javascript core library wikibits.js. It also keeps track of already imported files.

To allow us to remove includePage from Mediawiki:Common.js I'd kindly ask you to replace its use with importScript (same syntax!). Thanks! --Dschwen 17:03, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Valued images test review phase has ended[edit]

Dear Inkwina,

Thank you for participating in the development of the Valued images project by test nominating one or more candidates. We have used the input from the test reviews to fine-tune the guidelines, process and templates used, hereby hopefully improving the setup.

We have now decided that on June 1, 2008 at 0:00 (UTC), the valued image project will be opened for official nominations. To get ready for the grand opening, we will close down the last remaining open test candidates in a few hours, such that the candidates list pages are emptied and ready.

Since there has been a certain amount of instruction creep over the course of the test review pahse, we have decided that all promoted and declined candidates from the test review phase will be reset to the so-called "undecided" state prior to the opening. This means that test valued image candidate review pages all end up in Category:Undecided valued images candidates and the test sets end up in Category:Undecided valued image set candidates.

The votes from the original test review will be archived in a previous reviews subpage and reset upon renomination.

Although all nominations will be reset, you, as a test nominator, will still have the advantage that each candidate can be re-nominated beginning June 1 0:00 UTC. The votes from the original test review will be archived in a previous reviews subpage and reset upon renomination. Click on the links to the aforementioned categories for instruction on how to renominate.

In addition, the project has decided to re-nominate all candidates, which were test promoted, unless you tell us not to do so on my talk page. Also, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or problems relating to valued images.

I hope, you will also take part in the project once it goes on the air, either as nominator, maintainer and/or reviewer.

Happy editing, -- Slaunger 21:53, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Renaming British artillery shell diagrams[edit]

You are making big mistakes in renaming the British artillery ammunition e.g. Image:BL8inchHENavalShellDiagram1934.jpg as Image:Diagram of British HE shell.jpg

Also Image:BL8inchSAPMkIBShell1933Diagram.jpg Image:BL8inchSAPKMkIBNTShell1943Diagram.jpg Image:BL15inchAPMkXXIIBNTShell1943Diagram.jpg Image:BL15inchAPMkXIIAShell1933Diagram.jpg

You have omitted the important identification information : calibre, mark, year etc. There are many similar diagrams and need to be uniquly and descriptively identified.

Also, for sorting purposes, the most important thing is the gun calibre and shell type, not the fact that it is a diagram. We want all shells for the same gun sorted together, whether diagram or photograph. Hence the name should end with diagram if it is used.

Please do not delete these diagrams until you have proper names. I recommend you just place spaces between the parts of the name as it is now. Rcbutcher (talk) 10:20, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Update[edit]

Hello Inkwina,

Could you please update the page Commons:Top 200 Images which have a Vector version available by usage ?

Thanks in advance

Adding the SVG template?[edit]

Why did you add

{{SVG}}

to Category:Sketch diagrams? At least one of the Category is an SVG. Gordo (talk) 08:24, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm guessing because, as the template says, all images in the category should be in SVG format, and it's a lot less messy than adding the template to each image in the category. Stannered (talk) 11:01, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
Odd really. A template in a category that applies to each item in the category.... I believe that the template should be added to non SVG items only. Gordo (talk) 12:10, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
It does apply. The only issue is the wording. The implication is "All images in this category should use vector graphics". Which is true. Images that are already in SVG format obviously don't need to be recreated. Stannered (talk) 16:03, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
I think this conversation needs to be taken somewhere where more people can give their input. I think that by definition, Sketch diagrams should be SVG, and that template is regularly used on Categories. Yes ideally each image should have its own {{SVG}} but that is not very convenient. Maybe what we need is the following: 1. make the template behave substantially differently when applied to a category vs. an image. 2. get a bot to tag all images which belong to such a category but are not svg. --Inkwina (talk contribs) 17:44, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Commons Scope - Pdf and Djvu files[edit]

I have added some text dealing with these based on the discussion on the talk page. Users are by no means unanimous about which files should be allowed, and I have tried to follow the majority opinion. Thus, the suggestion is that if a Pdf or Djvu file is educationally useful even to a single other Wiki it should be kept. Would you like to comment before this page goes live? Please do so at the bottom of the talk page. Regards, --MichaelMaggs (talk) 21:50, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Refresh on this page?[edit]

Could we have a refresh on Commons:Top 200 Images that should use vector graphics by usage, please? Thanks! Stannered (talk) 22:21, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Location?[edit]

Hi Inkwina - fairly sure I know what species this File:Seagull gliding.JPG is, but location would help: where was it taken, please? Thanks! MPF (talk) 21:54, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

I think that is somewhere in the Netherlands. I don;t rember where exactly but it must be Zantfort and Scheveningen. --Inkwina (talk · contribs) 22:01, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
