Please[edit]

Please don't overwrite images with a good source as File:Wilhelm Simmler-Haff-Ruhmeshalle.jpg with such ridiculous photo shop experiments. Thank you Mutter Erde 78.51.152.94 19:07, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

I've seen only now that you were so kind to have fixed my english user page! Really thank you! Unfortunately, I'm only en-3! :-) If you have time, I would like to ask you a favour! :-) Could you be so kind to fix also the english syntax of this page: User:Filnik/License_missing? Now it's protected, so if you have time please write me so I will unblock it :-) The reason is that this page is heavily visited and it should be well written but I can't find some motherlanguage that can help me! Thank you again, --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 18:23, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Page unlocked :-) If you meant also this page: User_talk:Filnik/Talk, feel free to do every correction that you prefer! :-) If you instead mean to correct the messages of the other users, well, better not to do so (sometimes people don't like that but I dunno why). Thanks again! :-) --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 08:20, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
The link you have given to me, it's not a wikipedia page :-) So, you can simply copy the text in the page and then copy it here with the corrections: User:Filnik/Sandbox. After I've taken the text, I will delete the page again ;-) Thanks for your help! --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 17:23, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Wisconsin barns[edit]

Thank you for your work with categorizing them. I notice that you uploaded numerous images of barns in Wisconsin. I'm from that state! If you upload an image of a Wisconsin location listed on the National Register of Historic Places, please add it to Category:National Register of Historic Places in Wisconsin. I'd appreciate it if you would also add the image to the NRHP article on the English Wikipedia [1]? I've been trying to systematically take pictures of these places and I'd hate to duplicate our efforts. Thanks! Royalbroil 03:39, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Actually, it looks like you've done most of my suggestions! I did add these to the NRHP category. Let me know if you need a picture of a place in the eastern half of Wisconsin. I do drive around on misc trips from time to time and there's a chance I might be able to take it. Royalbroil 03:49, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Misspelled category name[edit]

✓ Done I did the move and deleted the category. No problem, happy to help! Royalbroil 04:31, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Oooh, very cool. Thank you! Jdsteakley (talk) 04:41, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Cornelis Visscher[edit]

It's Cornelis Visscher, not Cornelis de Visscher, according to several sources, including the Rijksmuseum. If you could revert the changes you made, that'd be great. Thanks! Regards, Kweniston (talk) 16:36, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

✓ Done When consolidating all the pictures into one category, I opted for the existing artist template titled "Cornelis de Visscher" [[2]] simply because it was there. Now I've moved all the images to "Cornelis Visscher" [[3]] and linked that category to the template. What do you think? Should the template be deleted?

Bernhard von Bülow[edit]

where did you find the picture of mr.bülow?do you know more from him???? I´m very interesting!!! have you an email? u.gollesch

Do you mean the cartoon File:Brand, Adolf - from - Kladderadatsch (Berlin) - 27 October 1907.jpg? I found that cartoon in the journal Kladderadatsch, which is in many German libraries, especially in Berlin, where it was originally published. Jdsteakley (talk) 22:56, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Photo[edit]

I saw that you took a lot of pictures of different Stolpersteine in Berlin. In case you are still interested in this subject: I rewrote the German article on de:Fritz Pfeffer, who got a Stolperstein in Berlin in 2007. It is located on the corner of Passauer Straße/Lietzenburger Straße. Is it possible for you to take a picture of that stone? It would be great for the article. Greetings, --Paulae (talk) 14:43, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Okay, on my next trip to Berlin I will take a picture. I expect to go to Berlin in August. Jdsteakley (talk) 20:23, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Do you still plan to go to Berlin this month? Greetings, --Paulae (talk) 20:56, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Jdsteakley. Kennst du diese Gallery? Sehr nützlich wenn man Kunstwerke sucht... Liebe Grüsse, --DenghiùComm (talk) 06:09, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Thanks Jdsteakley So many pictures of commons are difficult to locate by lack of categorization, your categories are very helpful! Ecummenic (talk) 05:02, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Excellent![edit]

Thanks for File:Königin Luise mit ihren Söhnen.jpg---I couldn't find this anywhere else on the Web at a reasonable resolution. Morn the Gorn (talk) 13:48, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

  • I too was thrilled to find this color picture in the Schill book. Up to then, I'd only had a crummy black and white version. Jdsteakley (talk) 14:07, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
I was at Schloss Charlottenburg yesterday, and while the painting (and variations on its theme by other artists) were an important part of the currently ongoing exhibition, they didn't seem to have a postcard of it in the museum store. And photographing in the exhibit, even without flash, was prohibited... Morn the Gorn (talk) 20:23, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Ernst Moritz Geyger[edit]

Du hast vier Bilder von Geyger hochgeladen und mit {{PD-Art}} markiert. Allerdings ist der Autor nicht seit 70+ Jahren tot. Erst 2012 werden seine Werke gemeinfrei sein. Die Bilder sind in der Versionsgeschichte von Ernst Moritz Geyger gespeichert und können am 1.1.2012 wieder hergestellt werden. --Martin H. (talk) 01:51, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Autopatroller[edit]

I have given you the autopatroller right on Commons. You are well respected and there's no reason for your edits to be patrolled since they are always high quality. Royalbroil 20:24, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Background removal (Graphic Lab/Photography workshop)[edit]

Your request of Background removal have been done, please have a look. Ivan Akira (talk) 05:53, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm afraid your deletion request to File:Ferdinand von Schill (Schnupftabakdose).jpg might be rejected according to the Commons:Superseded images policy, and you can even read the discussion at Commons talk:Superseded images policy. So, your edit which remove the link to File:Ferdinand von Schill (Schnupftabakdose).jpg should be reverted I think. Ivan Akira (talk) 00:00, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Hello, Ivan. Thank you for pointing me to this discussion of superseded images, which I was entirely unaware of. Reading through (parts of) the very lengthy discussion, it seems to me that there are two key issues here. One is the matter of licensing, and in the present case that doesn't really matter, because this is a public domain art image. The second, possibly more important issue, is the transparent background of a png image, which apparently is not readable with the Windows Explorer browser. -- With this image, I was concerned that the cloth visible in the background might be protected by copyright. It shows that a photographer at the Berlin Museum was hard at work, and created an original image. The circular image, on the other hand, lacks originality (at least within the past 200 or so years), and therefore can be copied for Wikimedia. -- Now I am wondering whether it is possible for you to change the png image once again, so that a neutral (perhaps white, or perhaps black) background appears where it is now transparent. That way, it would be possible to upload the image as a jpg which could be opened with all browsers. What do you think? -- Jdsteakley (talk) 00:16, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh yeah, about the IE issue, let's talk it here, not in the graphic lab. Based on my observation, the PNG transparency problem only occur at Internet Explorer version 6 and its predecessors. While start from version 7 (the latest version is 8) there are no problem in PNG transparency (I'm already confirmed this through test in my IE 6 and IE 8 browser). So based on my personal opinion, you shouldn't need to worry about the transparency issue anymore. Simply because almost every Internet Explorer users now using the version 7 or 8. -- And, how about the request? Are you still want me to make the round photo to square? If you do, I will do it after you reconfirm. Okay? You can answer either at this talk page or at graphic lab, but not both :-). Ivan Akira (talk) 11:54, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, Ivan, for this update on viewing transparent area on Internet Explorer. That was my only reason for wanting a square image, not a round one, so let's just skip that and leave the image as it is. Now I'll try to figure out a different rationale (other than "superseded") for getting the original jpg deleted. -- Jdsteakley (talk) 20:01, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Okay then~ so I think I'll re-set the request as resolved. Ho ho ho. Ivan Akira (talk) 07:07, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I am in complete agreement. -- Jdsteakley (talk) 14:14, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Historic House exhibit[edit]

Hello. I apologize if I am doing this incorrectly. My name is Kaitlin Ammon and I am the curator at the Sam Bell Maxey House State Historic Site, located in Paris, TX. Our website is www.visitsambellmaxeyhouse.com.

We are planning a new temporary exhibit for our historic site. Part of that exhibit will focus upon the Italianate architecture of the Maxey House and we want to display pictures of other Italianate houses to compare the Maxey House to. On Wikimedia Commons, I found your image of the Fitzgerald Home, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The address is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fitzgerald__Home_Milwaukee.jpg. It states that this photo is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license. I wanted to make sure that this is still the case, as well as personally ask your permission to use this photograph in our upcoming exhibit, which we will attribute to you in the manner of your choosing as specified in the license.

The exhibit will be a free exhibit for any visitors who stop by the Maxey House while we are currently under construction and unable to offer guided tours of the actual house. We do not plan to use the photo in any way other than as an image in our free exhibit. If this use is agreeable to you, please send me the wording for your photo attribution here or at my work email address, kaitlin.ammon@thc.state.tx.us. Also, please feel free to email me if you have any further questions. Thank you in advance for your time.Kammon (talk) 21:06, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes, certainly you have my permission to use the photo of the Fitzgerald House in your upcoming exhibition. As for credit, I would like it to say: James Steakley (Wikimedia Commons). It would be wonderful if you could upload a photo of the Maxey House to Wikipedia or Wikimedia, for it could then illustrate the Wikipedia article on the house. -Jdsteakley (talk) 10:35, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for[edit]

Category:Oberrheinische Narrenschau Kenzingen, and for describing them and categorizing everything beautifully into the local Fasnet categories. This meticulous work (that I also do when photographing the costumes "in action") makes the Commons one of the really good sources for photos and Fasnet information, better than most sites on the web where they don't even name the groups and figures.

File:ReliefspänneI.JPG‎ and File:ReliefspänneII.JPG‎[edit]

I will point out that those two files do not belong into Category:Viking fibulae because they are from the Migration period and not from the Viking period. You have placed them in that category three times now without giving any reasons why. Do you have scources that say they are dated from the Viking period? Please share them with me then. / Achird (talk) 13:27, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for this information. What do you think of the category "Ancient Germanic fibulae"? Perhaps a different category could be created, for example "Nordic fibulae" or "North Germanic fibulae". Do you have a preference? --Jdsteakley (talk) 13:32, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
All three of those categories works, but I would prefer Category:Nordic Iron Age fibulae for these two files (together with File:Reliefspänne (Raä-nr Trävattna 31-1) 8839.jpg, File:Odin bältespänne Finnestorp Västergötland.jpg, and File:Spänne förgyllt silver guldfiligran och granater skåne vendeltid.jpg) and put the Category:Viking fibulae as a subcategory of it. / Achird (talk) 13:51, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Mengs' four times of the day personified[edit]

Hello! Thanks for adding Mengs' paintings of Diana, Helios and Hesperus, from Roettgen's Anton Raphael Mengs 1728-1779, vol. 2: Leben und Wirken. The description says he painted four, but I can't find any more about the last one; do you know if still exists, and if so whether it's in the book? Thanks. ‑‑xensyriaT 15:11, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
