Hello, Kiefer.Wolfowitz!

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.

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. INeverCry 16:52, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much.
I have tried to correct my own mistake, at times by alerting the community or administrators when I need help. This seems to be a nice community, and I thank you for your help.
Sincerely,  Kiefer.Wolfowitz  (Discussion) 18:19, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
It's certainly much more mellow and friendly here than on en.wiki. It's much harder to argue and fight over images; and with all the different nationalities represented here, an argumentitive American, Brit, or Frenchman probably sees something he wants to get pissy over, discovers that his potential opponent only speaks Dutch, Russian, or German, and says fuck! and goes about his business instead. Face-wink.svg Also POV, ownership, experience, referencing, and all the other contentious things on en.wiki have few or no counterparts here on Commons. Anyways I hope we'll see more of you here in the future, and if you need anything drop me a line. INeverCry 21:11, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
So far everybody has been reasonable.  Kiefer.Wolfowitz  (Discussion) 14:43, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

File:First and second inversions of C-major chord on six-string guitar with major-thirds tuning.svg[edit]

It doesn't seem to contain any vector data, so you might as well just upload the PNG instead. AnonMoos (talk) 03:49, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

The PNG files use too much memory, and so the Commons gives too coarse images to the articles on en:WP.
I pasted from my pdf into Inkscape, but there must be a better method.  Kiefer.Wolfowitz  (Discussion) 14:27, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Not sure what you mean about "too much memory"; as long as you keep PNG dimensions under 12,500,000 pixels (e.g. a square 3,535 pixels to a side) there should be no problem. Putting a PNG in an SVG or PDF really doesn't help with Wikipedia/Wikimedia display. If you're desperate to avoid PNG, try GIF or a JPEG. If your PDF files are in vector format, then try to capture this vector source into a vector SVG. But we won't send you to the glue factory regardless... SFriendly.gif -- AnonMoos (talk) 15:17, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
I am going to re-animate a computer with Linux, so it should be easier to produce SVG files.  Kiefer.Wolfowitz  (Discussion) 10:29, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
AnonMoos SVG format is really the best for schemas or draw. raster picture should be used only for photos, screen capture or graphics that can't be in a vector format. JPEG is really the worse format except for photos because of lost in compression.
If you need some help to create your SVG, I can try to do that. send me your files.--Tiger66 (talk) 17:35, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

SVG from LaTeX in Ubuntu?[edit]

Tiger66 -- The worst of all is something which is pretending to be in one format, but not actually really in that format (e.g. a PNG pretending to be an SVG). You're right that JPEG isn't preferred for this type of graphic, but an honest JPEG would still be better than a phoney SVG... AnonMoos (talk) 03:34, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
PDF created from LaTex
Dear AnonMoos and Tiger66,
I updated the pdf source from which I created the png files. Let me link it...
My Linux machine is running, but I haven't had (and don't expect to have) an afternoon to play with command lines to convert LaTeX files to SVG. (I've gotten lazy in Windows 7. Perhaps I can separate each graphic as a separate file in LaTeX, and export each to SVG (without pdf)....
Thanks again for your helpful suggestions. Best regards,  Kiefer.Wolfowitz  (Discussion) 17:36, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

GNU Lilypond and SVG[edit]

guitar chords[edit]

Hi, I saw yr message and I thought that "regular tunings" was referred to standard tunings, so I maybe categorized some chords wrong. But I can't remember which ones so that I can change the category! Thanks a lot for your observation. --Elenaf (talk) 09:10, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay in my reply.
I'm happy to remove the "regular" category for you. I added an explanation about the category's scope, which should clarify things, I hope!

English Wikipedia[edit]

well, they have removed my user page, but somehow did not ban me. perhaps Commons is not as broken as I thought. anyhoo, i see that Risker is suggesting that you mail evidence to arbcom. my experience with arbcom is that they are useless, or worse than useless, because they led me to believe they were deliberating my case, so for eight months there was no reply. a reply only came when i wrote to them, and i was told that basically they hoped i would go away.

the reason for this message is to point out that Risker's request is like the court asking the defendant to send his alibi to the prosecutor instead of telling it to the jury. im not very good with analogies, but that one seemed appropriate. good luck with your case. ironholds will win, because thats the way its rigged. if they dont let you post your evidence, suggest that the case be dropped or similar, because they will not let you post the evidence that would show who should win. good luck, Kiefer. Zerofox (talk) 03:20, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

PS: another reason im posting this here is because "Editing from 184.8.96.0/19 has been blocked (disabled) by Legoktm for the following reason(s):", which means they either think that i am a menace, or theyre so desperate to bury the truth that they would willingly block 8,190 IPs from contributing, simply to hide the ugly, ugly facts. so much for openness and transparency, i guess. anyways as i said, good luck. many people are rooting for you. Popcorn.svg Zerofox (talk) 03:36, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your message of support. I'm sorry that I did not see it before now.
I'd like to think that many Arbs recognize the gravity of the principal problems and the political problems posed by the behavior and by their handling of the case.

Honesty[edit]

New improved, New standard tuning[edit]

New Standard Tuning - C major scale harmonized in sevenths and triads, arpeggios. This PNG file looks better than the PDF file.

My chord booklet was recreated with Guitar Pro rather than Gnu Lilypond. Associated .Wav, .png, and .midi (or was it .mid) files have been uploaded.  Kiefer.Wolfowitz  (Discussion) 18:26, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

File:New Standard Tuning - C major scale harmonized in sevenths and triads, arpeggios.midi.mid

New Standard Tuning - C major scale harmonized in sevenths and triads, arpeggios WAV

Expanded pdf file, which loads poorly on a poor internet connection. Maybe the png is better for the English WP article?

Arpeggios[edit]

Arpeggios for closed voicings of broken chords in the key of C major for 6-string guitars with the new standard tuning (NST) of Robert Fripp's Guitar Craft (C-G-D-A-E-G): Three triads (C, G, F major) and the major--minor seventh chord with dominant function (dominant seventh, G7). The PNG file was created by Kiefer.Wolfowitz.

The WAV file was created by Kiefer.Wolfowitz.

I created a set of audio & image files showing chord progressions of closed-voicing chords for NST in the key of C major. The png or pdf file and the wave file could be added to the English WP article.

Also, the old set of audio & image files for NST has been thoroughly revised.

Images for all perfect-fourths tuning[edit]

@Dr. Blofeld:, @Hyacinth: One of these images could be used in All fourths tuning:

Major triads and dominant seventh chords in all perfect-fourths tuning for the major scale on C: C major, F major, G major, and G7 (major-minor seventh with dominant function).
