Wappen Afghanistans[edit]

Kannst du mich mal bezüglich des Wappens von Afghanistan erleuchten? Du hast nun eine verkleinerte und sich von der ersten Version unterscheidende Version hochgeladen. Kann man irgendwo die originale Freigabe der Botschaft nachlesen und den Grund, warum das Austauschen nötig war?

Zudem müsste noch eine Versionslöschung erfolgen, da das alte Bild unter [1] immer noch abrufbar ist (das kann ich erledigen, wenn du mir erklärt hast, warum das nötig ist ;-). --::Slomox:: >< 14:28, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Bild Tatamailau[edit]

Grüße Dich,

ich war mal so frei, Deine Luftaufnahme vom Image:Tatamailau.jpg detail zu vergrößern und hinter dem mächtigen Propeller zu rekonsturieren. Ich hoffe, Du hast damit kein Problem. Der Flugzeugmotor hatte doch etwas arg viel Bildfläche und ich wusste einige Minuten lang gar nicht, was ich denn da nun wo sehe... Liebe Grüße, Bo

Marine Life East Timor[edit]

Patrick. Thanks for the categorization work on the Timor images. I just put a bunch in the general Marilne life category and see that you are putting them in only the Marine Life of East Timor category. Is it possible to leave the general category in as well ? There are so few images in that category that I am working on making it more representative so as to provide a top level repository for visitors to see upon first visit to commons. Does this make sense ? Thanks - Nick Nhobgood (talk) 17:51, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

I would have no problem to do so, but isn't it unusual to double-categorize a picture? --Patrick (talk) 18:04, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I see, I made a typo while making the category a category of Category:Marine life! --Patrick (talk) 18:07, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
The general category Category:Marine life looks like it pre-existed before the Category:Marine life of East Timor that you created. I guess in order to avoid over-categorization, a link to the more specific Category:Marine life of East Timor on the general Category:Marine life category page would be more logical. What do you think ? - Nick Nhobgood (talk) 18:45, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
I think, I did now, what you are pruposing. First it doesn't work because of a typing mistake. Please have a look! --Patrick (talk) 18:48, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
OOPS! Newbie error on my part. I now see that the East Timor category is already a sub category of the main page. I will go and move the remaining images from one to the other. Thanks! Nhobgood (talk) 18:57, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Looks like you already moved all of them. Thanks! I will check if there are any ones that I added after you went through to avoid duplication. Nice work! Nick - - Nhobgood (talk) 19:24, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Still 40 to do in Category:Animals of East Timor. ;-) By the way: Was the mountain village in the District of Aileu? --Patrick (talk) 19:51, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Obrigado barrak! I just finished moving the remaining images. The mountain village picture was taken on the way back from Suai and somewhere between Suai and Aileu. Most likely Aileu. Nhobgood (talk) 20:43, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, Nick! --Patrick (talk) 12:56, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Patrick, I support Nick's view on an overall repository, or at worst second order repositories so that users can get an overview quickly. For example, today I was looking for a photo of a "bombie" and had to dig through five or six sub and sub-sub categories before I found the one under Marine animals of Maubara. This would create a top-level "folder" with a lot of pictures in it, but they are only thumbnails so perhaps workable. It is certainly quicker than the "digging" method.--Ahalin (talk) 00:36, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
PS, re my categorisation problem, I posted on my user talk page the following entry, but as it is relevant to this discussion I am copying over so we can keep the discussion in one place:
Thank you again Patrick, I think I understand but I am not sure how to go about applying a country category, district category and dive-site category to a picture without duplication. Do you just link it to the dive site category, which automatically links it to the district, which automatically links it to the country? As per my previous post, if a picture is tucked away in a sub-sub category, it is difficult to find.

File:Tender Donau A69 1993.jpg[edit]

Hello: I'm always interested in learning -- on the subject photo, you have an annotation which says that the flags at the port yardarm are 3 and 5. Since they don't match the international code flags 3 and 5 (see File:ICS-flags.png), what are they? Thanks, . . . . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talkcontribs) 01:01, 26 February 2010 (UTC) (If you chose to respond, please do so here.)

Hello Jim! These are definetly the signal flags for 3 and 5. I set them on my own, because I was signalman at this time on that ship ;-). These flags are not mention on the table, but are here:
Greetings, --Patrick (talk) 11:32, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for a quick response -- but what I'd like to know is -- whose signal flags. I have a US Master's license -- I know the international code of signals by heart, and I've never seen these. Are they German? European? Something else? Thanks, . . . . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talkcontribs) 13:26, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
I learnt them at the German Navy as international code. They were used in normal ship-to-ship-communication between military and civil ships. We made exercises with U.S. ships,too and there were no special regulation for communication with them or other NATO ships. The pennants were not in use to send text messages. Maybe there was a change since 1993? --Patrick (talk) 11:47, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Frosch in Taiwan[edit]

Dein Frosch hat uns Spaß gemacht. Ich hatte vor einigen Wochen eine Auseinandersetzung mit einem Commons-Bild, bei dem der Frosch eine so tolle Tarnfarbe hatte, dass ich und meine Frau ihn nicht gefunden haben. Ich habe deshalb angezweifelt, dass es ihn überhaupt gibt. Dann hat jemand ein Kästchen rumgezeichnet, daraufhin sah ihn wenigstens meine Frau und ein Bekannter, ich habe ihn erahnt. Dann hat jemand in den Hintergrund ein zweites Bild hochgeladen, den Frosch freigestellt, für Leute wie mich. Tatsächlich ein Frosch, unglaubliche Camouflage (das Wort kannte ich auch noch nicht, bis meine Meisterin einen Krimi mit dem Namen veröffentlicht hat). Und jetzt kommst Du mit Deiner Gemüsekiste. Ich das Bild sofort meiner Frau gemailt, mit der erneuten Frage, "wo ist der Frosch?" Naja, meine Frau wusste nicht was ich will, sie hatte inzwischen einen Frosch. - Ich habe heute abend übrigens ebenfalls ein Bild hochgeladen - ebenfalls das falsche, musste ebenfalls das richtige nachsenden.

Wollte ich Dir nicht vorenthalten. Gute Nacht --Kürschner (talk) 20:56, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Nette Geschichte! ;-) Es sind übrigens Seegurken und Igelwürmer in der Kiste. Die Koreaner essen schon komische Dinge. --Patrick (talk) 17:15, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Früher hätte ich (fast) alles mal probiert. Neulich das Krokodil war so knorpelig - muss nicht mehr sein. --Kürschner (talk) 18:21, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
Diese Dinger habe ich auch weggelassen, aber Krokodil in Australien war lecker. Ebenso Papageitaucher. Nicht zu empfehlen sind Kamel (zäh) und Opposum (bäh). --Patrick (talk) 18:33, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
Nutria, lecker!
Aber gerade wegen der Opossums hat man uns angefleht, mehr Felle zu verarbeiten. Wenn sie die unbedingt dezimieren wollen, könnten sie die doch wenigstens lecker zubereiten. Ist doch so ähnlich wie Nutria, das hat mir durchaus geschmeckt.--Kürschner (talk) 19:07, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Bandeira do Leal Senado[edit]

Hi!! Could you create an svg of the Flag of Leal Senado (pt:Bandeira do Leal Senado (Macau)) based on this Flags of the World - Bandeiras do Concelho de Macau?? This flag is very relevant, because it represents the old Macau, the Macau governed by the portuguese... this flag is so representative that in the handover ceremony of Macau, this flag was used to represent the portuguese Macau, instead of the Flag of the Government of Portuguese Macau. Can you help me or can you transmit this message to someone that can create this file? AdriAg (talk) 16:41, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

I am sorry. I am not able to work with SVG-Files. But I am sending your request to User:Zscout370, who made several files here and is working in FOTW, too. Greetings, --Patrick (talk) 18:34, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Request for use of photo of Grosser Panda for educational publishing[edit]

On behalf of Educational Publishing House Limited, an established educational publishing company in Hong Kong, I am writing to ask for your permission for us to use the photo in our textbooks developed for Hong Kong kindergarten pupils.

In one of the units in the series, we will introduce the word ‘panda’. I would be very grateful if you could give us permission to use the photo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Grosser_Panda.JPG) in our Pupil’s Book and the related supplementary teaching resources, including the Teacher’s Guide, workbook, picture card, poster, DVD, e-Book and Picture Bank, where teachers can print the photo from there for educational purposes. Credit will surely be given to you.

I look forward to your earliest reply and I'd be very grateful to get your permission.

Hi Serina! I just answered you at my German main account (de:Benutzer:J. Patrick Fischer). --Patrick (talk) 18:17, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Meira File[edit]

First I want to give you congratulations for your work in wikipedia on East Timor.
Keep on the good work!

Regarding the Photo of Raimundo Meira (My great-grandfather), unfortunately the Commons administrators never read a single copyright law, and refuse to do so. The photo was a commissioned photo and copyright laws state that the rights belong to person who paid for it. But trying to explain that is like talking to a wall.

Anyway if you want, and can upload it directly on the German wikipedia, I can send it to you.

Best Regards

Language Map of Timor[edit]

For the 2006 one, I noticed it did cover the whole island, but the main caption of the image was that it was the language map of East Timor in particular WhisperToMe (talk) 01:23, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

I do not know, what do you mean. Even the West Timor capital Kupang is mentioned on the map. West Timor does not have as many languages like the East, but the map is as far complete. --Patrick (talk) 10:39, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I see what happened. The english version of File:Timor Sprache en.png reads "Languages of East Timor" but the German (File:Timor_Sprache.jpg) just says languages of Timor. WhisperToMe (talk) 12:12, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Digital map of East Timor - suco level[edit]

Dear Patrick
I work for the Department of Agriculture in Australia and we support the Timor L'este government and people through a collaborative program conducting surveillance for animal diseases. As part of our work, we generate maps of the locations at which samples are taken. I currently have digital maps of Timor at the district and sub-district level but do not have a digital map with the suco boundaries. I was wondering whether you would be able to provide me with a digital map of the suco boundaries or alternatively, direct me to a commercial company that has this map for sale. Any assistance you can provide would be gratefully received.

Guereza[edit]

Please beware that you have requested a wrong rename here . As was pointed out earlier, the photo shows a standard Colobus guereza, which looks very different from Colobus polykomos. If the zoo actually claimed they were Colobus polykomos on your visit, they were wrong. I note that when I visited in 2011 they correctly listed them as Colobus guereza and zooinstitutes list them as the correct species, too. Real Colobus polykomos look very different, lacking the long white hairs on the mantle, having a greyer less clearly defined white around the face (especially on throat; this is because the hair is fairly thin), and have an entirely white tail but a comparably small tuft to the tail. You can compare your photo of Colobus guereza to photos of real Colobus polykomos here, here, here and here, but beware that your photos are not the only misnamed on the net. Alternative you should check any of the numerous books that have good illustrations/descriptions of these species, e.g. The Kingdon Guide to African Mammals by Jonathan Kingdon, The Pictorial Guide to the Living Prinates by Noel Rowe, Primates of West Africa: A Field Guide and Natural History by John F. Oates, or Primate Taxonomy by Colin Groves. I would strongly urge you to request a rename again to the correct species Colobus guereza, since the current file name is misleading and in direct conflict with commons policy. When someone points to a mistake in the future, please also consider checking alternative sources instead of just swiftly reverting. Regards, RN1970 (talk) 14:33, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Danke für Deine Hinweise und Links. Es ist verwunderlich, dass der Shanghai Zoo falsch auflistet. Auch, dass im Internet C. guerza für den Zoo aufgelistet sind, dort aber nirgends ein Gehege mit dieser Bezeichnung zu finden war (ich habe alle Affen geknippst). ;-) Aber Deine Begründungen klingen richtig. Die von Dir genannten Bücher sind nicht gerade um die Ecke in deutschen Büchereien zu finden, aber ich habe den Grzimek zu Hause und habe da nachgeguckt. Der zeigt zwei sehr ähnliche Arten, der C. polykomos ist vielleicht etwas buschiger im Gesicht, aber die Färbungen sollen je nach Unterart bei beiden sehr unterschiedlich sein! Ich habe die Frage nochmal zur Diskussion in de:Wikipedia:Redaktion Biologie/Bestimmung gestellt, um sicher zu gehen. Änderungen werde ich nicht beantragen, sofern da nichts geklärt ist. Aber es wäre nett, wenn Du vielleicht einen etwas freundlicheren Ton anschlägst und einen Hinweis VOR Verschiebung an den Hochlader wäre eigentlich auch eine Sache des guten Tons. Grüße, --Patrick (talk) 19:02, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the reply. I do understand German, but prefer to write in English. C. polykomos does not have any subspecies in modern taxonomy (Mammal Species of the World). Until ~25 years ago, it included C. vellerosus (de:Geoffroy-Stummelaffe –similar to C. polykomos, but with white thighs, and more white in the face) as a subspecies, and earlier it also included C. satanas (de:Schwarzer Stummelaffe –totally black) and C. angolensi (de:Angola-Stummelaffe –variable in appearance, but always with white shoulder) as a subspecies, but today everybody treats them as separate species. The first edition of Grzimek animal encyclopedia was published in 1967-1972, and therefore probably uses one of the older taxonomic treatments. In modern taxonomy, C. polykomos is not a variable species. However, C. guereza has many subspecies, but these can all be recognized by the white hairs on the back (unique to the species), and all its subspecies can be divided into two main groups: The eastern "highland group" with long hair, and western "lowland group" with relatively short hair. C. polykomos is rare in zoos, but there are actually two German zoos that keep it: de:Thüringer Zoopark Erfurt (now only keeps C. polykomos, but had C. guereza until 2009) and de:Zoo Duisburg (only C. polykomos). Regards, RN1970 (talk) 13:58, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
The file still has a problematic name and description, and it is in the wrong category, conflicting with commons rules. Please consider reviewing this again; requesting a file rename, modifying the description and changing the category to the correct species (cat:Colobus guereza). Regards, RN1970 (talk) 17:37, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I thought, you would. I respect your knowledge. --Patrick (talk) 20:54, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

In all cases, please do not take the category discussion personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!

Xanana Gusmão's signature[edit]

Gusmão is the prime minister of East Timor. I don't understand why you removed the "East Timor" category. Rybec (talk) 22:26, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Because the Category:Xanana Gusmão is a sub-category of category:East Timor. ;-) By the way: Where did you got the letter? From Facebook? This would cause copyright problems... . Greetings, --Patrick (talk) 12:29, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for explaining; that makes sense. I didn't upload the JPEG, but just traced the SVG from it. Rybec (talk) 07:20, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Ah, I see. OK. ;-) --Patrick (talk) 14:21, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

File:Balibó-Cová--1.jpg[edit]

Hello Mr Fischer, I find it strange that you reversed my changes. To my knowledge Balibo is in East Timor, a former Portuguese colony, independent since 2002, which was illegally annexed by Indonesia in 1976. The man on the picture was unwillingly "Indonesian" Humboldt (talk) 13:03, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

You are right, but as you can read the discription. The man on the photo is an Indonesian, although the photo wasmade in Portuguese Timor (East Timor). ;-) --Patrick (talk) 18:50, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

India and Indonesia[edit]

could you make for India and Indonesia like File:Bekais.png?--Kaiyr (talk) 16:07, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, but I made this map, because I am working mainly about East Timor in Wikipedia. I draw this map by hand and used datas of all 442 sucos to draw this maps for all Timorese languages. It is a lot of work. Maybe you can find help in German Wikipedia de:Wikipedia:Kartenwerkstatt, which is creating new maps by request. Greetings, --JPF (talk) 16:30, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Horses of East Timor[edit]

I understand that horses may be an important part of transport in Timor-Leste, as you said in your edit summary. The issue is that a category called just "Horses in X" is not specifically transport. Not all the images in Category:Horses of East Timor show horses being used for transport. Even if they did, though, the category isn't properly named to be under transport. You could move the appropriate ones into a subcategory called something like Category:Horse-powered transport in East Timor and put that under the transport category. For now, though, I am going to take the transport category back off. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:32, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't think, your argument works really. CAtegories of cars are also part of transport categories, although not every car is driving in this moment. ;-) --JPF (talk) 16:44, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
The difference there is that cars are specifically made to be transport. Horses are used for transport, but they are also pets, they also live in the wild without interacting with humans who would use them for transport or anything else, they are also used for medicine, and they are also used for food. To put pictures of horses in transport categories, they either need to be in a category that indicates transport, or the individual pictures should be put in the category. You can also see that Category:Horses contains Category:Use of horses, which contains Category:Horse transport. We wouldn't necessarily need the "Use of horses" category everywhere, but "Horses" in general would not go under transport. See Help:Categories#For_more_appropriate_categorization for more information about categorizing. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:43, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
OK, thank you for explanation. --JPF (talk) 05:28, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Joao Tavares[edit]

Hello, I want to ask you, in this picture which of João de Tavares? -Denny eR Ge (talk) 17:12, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello! I am noct the photograph, but I would say, the man with the hat. The original source just mention João de Tavares on the photo. Greetings, --JPF (talk) 17:30, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
