Hello, and thank your for sharing your files with Commons. There seems to be a problem regarding the description and or licensing of this particular file. Could you please resolve these problems, which are described on the page linked in above? Thank you. --Orgullomoore 15:05, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

I undeleted the image. Please next time provide proper information. Thanks, Yann 20:01, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
It was just a rude mistake. I endeavour to put correct licenses in all cases. — Kalan 08:15, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

You do realize that not all backgrounds are white, right? Forcing image backgrounds to white just makes an ugly box. --Connel MacKenzie 06:33, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

No, I've made white background for other reasons, see this userbox. P.S. If you use Internet Explorer <7, you will see an ugly box in any case. — Kalan 06:39, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Your revision of Image:GreenCopyleft.svg[edit]

I have reverted it, as the lime/light green looks way better. Yung6 14:53, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Aargh! I hate so bright and annoying colors. So, let's find the consensus.
Is this color okay? — Kalan 15:25, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Can you show me a screenshot of it in Inkscape? You can screenshot it using the Print Screen key. Then open up Microsoft Paint, select Paste, save the screenshot, and upload it at an image host such as Tinypic. Then I'll look at it. Yung6 22:40, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Are you kidding? Why should I use screenshots and external sites? There's nothing terrible if Commons will receive another 3KB image. That's it. — Kalan 05:02, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I like the new one. Yeah, that colour's okay. Yung6 14:10, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Sea Otter[edit]

Привет Калан! The Еnglish en:Sea Otter article is under "Featured Article" review, and I have been cheerily stealing images from the EXCELLENT ru:Калан. I wanted to add the graphs on Commander Island harvests [1] and London fur market sales [2], but am not sure what the units are on the Y-axis (особи? сотни? шкуры? фунты?). Can you tell me? Best to respond to my English TalkPage [3]. Можешь по-Русский писать (читать так читаю да только пишу хреново!). Спасибо! Eliezg 20:34, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Horizontal axis of both images represent years. Vertical axis of first graph is measured in individuals, and axis of second graph is measured in thousands of fells. By the way, thank you for your efforts in promoting Sea Otter to FA. :) (cross-posted to User talk:Eliezg, as requested)Kalan ? 17:52, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
Спасибо! Eliezg 19:03, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello Kalan!

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. BotMultichill (talk) 12:50, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

POTY voting system[edit]

Hi Kalan,

Thanks for writing poty.js, it's quite neat. However, it's a bit confusing for some people (see Commons_talk:Picture_of_the_Year/2008#Why_modifying_the_voting_system.3F). Would it be possible to add, next to the Support button, a regular link to the list of votes? Cheers, Pruneautalk 09:46, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Poty.js el translation[edit]

            'comment': 'Σχόλιο',

            'alreadyvoted2': 'Επεξεργαστήκατε την αντίστοιχη σελίδα. Ίσως η επεξεργασία σας ήταν ψήφος.'
        },

May I bug you one more time for

 'votes': 'Votes list',

which translates as

 'votes': 'Κατάλογος ψήφων',

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Kalan!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

POTY 2010[edit]

Hi Kalan,

I've noticed that when someone votes on a picture in the gallery, the 'Votes list' link becomes unavailable for that person. That is inconvenient becomes it makes much more difficult to have access to the history of our favourite pictures. Can it please be fixed? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:00, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Boxes around images and voting buttons[edit]

Hello Kalan, Would it be possible for you to either: Move the voting button so it is inside the same grey border as the picture or Change the text on the button to read "Vote for this the above image" because on the panorama gallery it becomes unclear which button belongs with which image (even though it can be figured out by scrolling to the top or bottom of a gallery page). Thank you, Waerloeg (talk) 15:11, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

The arrows on the button are great. Thank you. 118.93.239.152 02:39, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Results in the yellow manual vote button only. Maybe it is easy to fix? Altough I do not care too much for IE. ;-) .. but sadly some people are using it.

And here is the actual problem-line:

var gallery = document.getElementsByClassName('dshuf')[0].getElementsByClassName('gallerybox')

Maybe the same in Chrome (I doubt it - Chrome is more similar to FF than to IE)? Commons_talk:Picture_of_the_Year/2010/Finalists/Medium#Automatic_voting_not_working_in_Chrome --Saibo (Δ) 02:15, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Suggestion for next year[edit]

Hi Bot-liker :)

Can you improve your script? Next year voting twice (or over the permitted number) in the final round should be prevented by script. This should be possible since script already queries the contribs. Thanks. Sincerely -- RE rillke questions? 20:13, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Flag and crest of Hannover prior to 1714[edit]

Kalan,

the flag for the Kingdom of Hannover is wrong. The Saxon steed had it's tail up, not down. Only after WWII is the Saxon steed depicted with a downward tail, unless in Westphalia, where the Saxon steed still proudly holds it's tail up.

This link leads to the original Hannoveran flag as used until 1714. You will notice that the crown is also incorrect in that regard.

I am not sure in how far the above is a reliable source.

You may with to correct your flag or offer some proof other than existing post WWII depictions. Your current version is historically incorrect. LordFarrow (talk) 08:55, 29 May 2011 (UTC)LordFarrow



May i humbly add to the quite very well educated remarks of Lord Farrow above that the royal crown of Hanover is very much inspired in design by the british crown jewels, notably the crown of Saint Edward, with some clear distinctions: The hanoverian royal crown does have a hermin base as do the british crowns, quite very unusual for a continental crown, it has 6 fleurons instead of the british fleur de lys, adorned originally with round/spherical stones or round pearls and 2 stylised maltese crosses after the british model, but heavier in appearance, also originally adorned with either stones or pearls, it has eight arches adorned with stones, instead of the four arches of british royal crowns, as is continental european custom for royal and grand-ducal crowns, the middle arch is continuous and broader whereas the other 6 are different in design and more narrow, between the fleurons and fleur de lys are 8 prongs, orginally adorned with pear-shaped pearls or stones which are now missing. The crown is made of 14 carat gold, filled completely (as can be seen in the last Prussian Royal Crown made in 1889) with a royal red velvet cap, topped by an orb of blue enamel embellished with a circlet of gold and one middle arch of the same, on top of which is sitting a stylised maltese cross with the round/spherical stone or pearl in the center missing, leaving a hole, the crown is adorned today with 6 blue Sapphires, 4 green Emeralds and 10 Rubies on the circlet and the arches, plus some obviously missing 17 pearls and/or round/spherical stones and possibly even more missing pearls and/or stones on the arches and the circlet. The crown is 26cm high, diameter 17,5cm, circumference 56cm and was originally heraldically designed by H. Schaedtler in 1816 when he designed the royal house order of guelph, and was finally comissioned in 1843, together with a sceptre and a smaller, similar crown (without any adornment of stones or pearls at all), originally intended (and once used) as a bridal crown, as the guelph jewels and with those the famous guelph bridal crown were in dispute between the hanoverian royal house and Queen Victoria of Great Britain as last british hanoverian, and were thus kept in Britain at the time - that second, smaller crown was later called the queens crown. The hanoverian crown jewels were made by the Royal Hanoverian Court Jewelers Knauer and Lameyer and the Royal Hanoverian Court Furrier Krüger and were first used at the wedding of Crown Prince George of Hanover in 1843. The Crown Jewels were never used for a coronation, as there never was a coronation in Hanover, they were used on the aforementioned wedding when they were shown to a selection of courtiers and guests and only once again, a last time, for the lying in state of George V. of Hanover. After that they remained hidden and went into exile to Gmund in Austria with the last King of Hanover, Ernest Augustus I. in 1866 when Prussia annexed Hanover in the aftermath of the German War. After 1925 they were kept at Blankenburg Castle, and were guarded by british troops to Marienburg Castle in 1945 where, it is assumed, they were kept since, but never been on public display. The hanoverian crown jewels are the private property of Prince Ernest Augustus (V.) of Hanover, head of the royal house of guelph, the house of the former kings of Hanover. The royal hanoverian regalia are kept in a private vault of the royal house today and are not on display.

One can find a not quite realistic by rather near, more heraldic, depiction of the Crown in Wikimedia Commons in > File:Hannover1837.jpg > http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hannover1837.jpg, a far better and realistic depiction of the crown can be found in the hanoverian great seal of state of 1860 as well as, depicted accurately realistic, in the hanoverian marshals baton made for the Duke of Wellington in 1844, kept at Aspley House, London > http://images.mediastorehouse.net/106/4513845_450_450_753_0_fit_0_89277d3a6bbf2b6d0edbce5925a95c6d.jpg, the second baton from the left.

May i add that that to use the heraldic Savoy crown of the Kings of Italy for the Hanoverian State Flag is quite ... ambitious. ;-)

Wikipedia Stories Project[edit]

Здравствуйте!

В настоящее время, многие считают, что Википедия создается людьми, которым платят за то, чтобы они писали статьи. Многие не знают, что редакторы Википедии прилагают свои усилия к созданию открытой электронной энциклопедии добровольно, что никто им не платит за эту работу. Для того, чтобы ознакомить общественность с процессом создания Википедии и пригласить заинтересованных людей принимать участие в ее редактировании, Фонд Викимедия-США, вместе с Фондом Викимедия-Россия, собирает личные рассказы редакторов русскоязычной Википедии о том, что движет ими в их добровольной редакторской деятельности и о том, как Википедия повлияла на их жизнь. Сбор подобных историй в разных странах уже позволил нам открыть для мировой общественности, что Википедия создается обыкновенными людьми на добровольных началах. Мы надеемся открыть для себя и общественности личные истории редакторов Википедии в России.

Если у Вас есть интересные истории о себе и о Вашем вкладе в развитие Википедии (или если Вы знаете кого-нибудь с интересными рассказами), пожалуйста свяжитесь с Виктором Григасом:
