Stellations of dodecahedron[edit]

Hello. I have just uploaded File:Zeroth_stellation_of_dodecahedron_facets.svg which is based in part on your previous work. I would welcome any comments you may have on the image (I should probably make the outer pentagram opaque white) or its licensing. First and second stellations are ready to follow. Thank you. en:User:Certes (talk) 21:08, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Life of Riley!

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.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Aristotle's wind rose[edit]

Hi. I noticed you converted the Aristotlean wind rose from my JPG version to SVG. Thanks. I don't know how to make SVG, so I hope I can pester you on a couple of tiny nitpicks:

  • - north is Aparctias, not Aparctius.
  • - I put a "?" on SSW to make it clear that Aristotle didn't have that wind (not that diagram-drawer ommitted it).
  • - Similarly I put parentheses around (Phoenicias) to indicate that Aristotle did not consider it a general wind, but only a possible local wind, omitting it from his general discussion.
  • - the diacritic on the first "alpha" in both Aparctias and Apeliotes should be a grave accent and not acute. (I know the modern Greek alphabet doesn't have the grave; I had to insert them manually.)

I hope its not too much of a bother to make these tiny changes. I would do it myself, but I don't know how to handle SVG. Walrasiad (talk) 20:44, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

  • Corrections made as requested. It is not too much trouble—I want to make it right. Thanks for advising me about the changes. The grave accents had to be manually constructed, as you indicated. Please advise if any further changes are required. •••Life of Riley (TC) 00:23, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

お礼[edit]

初めまして、Mtiです。Life of Rileyさん日本の市町村旗・市町村章のsvg化ありがとうございます。これによって市町村の旗や紋章が増えることに大変感謝したいます。しかし、これには大変な労力が必要であり、現存する自治体でも1500か所、廃止された自治体でも2000か所以上あり、私は今、それに取り掛かっている途中です。特に、北海道・福島県・埼玉県・新潟県・長野県・兵庫県・広島県・福岡県・佐賀県・鹿児島県は現存する自治体・廃止された自治体が80か所以上あり、すごく大変です。暇があれば私がまだ作成していない自治体の旗と紋章のsvg化をやっていただけないでしょうか?私もあなたと同じように取り掛かります。--Mti (talk) 20:47, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Coordinates[edit]

I've noticed you've been adding coordinates. Is it easy for you to figure out coordinates? If not, you can skip my photos and I'll eventually put them on, I just haven't gotten to putting them on all of my photos I've uploaded but it was on my list of things to do. Either way, thanks for adding them. --Mjrmtg (talk) 22:34, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

The ease of adding coords varies widely. If the description is adequate, it is usually not too difficult. Your descriptions seem good enough in most cases. The ones for the Azalea City Trail were not so easy. I had to carefully scrutinize the views in Google maps. I did a couple of them, but the the rest looked like they would be impossible to pinpoint, so I quit working on those. Let me know if I have them wrong.•••Life of Riley (TC) 22:48, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I just finished adding coords for Azalea City Trail except images 49-55, on google maps the tree canopy is pretty heavy. Those photos were taken somewhere between where trail enters the tree area just past the parking deck and where it exits onto Wainright Dr. in Valdosta. I don't know if I'll ever get those 6 photos coords. But I appreciate the work you've done. Thanks again. --Mjrmtg (talk) 21:00, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice. I had the same thought about adding coords to some of the Azalea Trail pictures: I didn't think that I would be able to correctly identify the locations because of the tree cover. •••Life of Riley (TC) 22:10, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

A heads-up on NRHP coordinates: A few weeks ago, someone "helpfully" mass-added coordinates to a bunch of historic sites, using known-inaccurate National Register of Historic Places coordinates on English Wikipedia as a source. If you see that a NRHP list on en.wiki is the source of the coordinates, you might want to do your own work on it instead, just to make sure it's actually over the real site. --Closeapple (talk) 02:27, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I usually double-check the coordinates anyway, but that is good to know. I have found a few inaccurate coords from Wikipedia. •••Life of Riley (TC) 02:31, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

duplicate coordinates[edit]

Thank you for deleting the duplicate coordinates. As I am still helping to categorize the newly uploaded project images I did not yet succeed to clean up, and now am really happy to see how much is already done. Thanks!! --Martina talk 21:16, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Glad to help. It was a big job: 150+ files!

Geo data templates[edit]

Hello LoR, I have seen that you are activ with geo tagging. I have a few suggestions herewith. Your edit at the File:Deutsches Zeichen 260 alt.JPG (still wrong coord) led me to the following ideas: Why not indicate further information on what basis the geo data comes from? I have the following templates on mind:

The following Geo data was added according to EXIF data and the location has been approved: <coord>
The following Geo data was added manually and the location has not been approved: <coord>

What do you think? That templates would be marked with "Beta version" (maybe even not in the user namespace) and get some kind of category. Later, --Mattes (talk) 13:07, 5 July 2013 (UTC) (changed to template namespace --22:18, 5 July 2013 (UTC) --Mattes (talk) 22:20, 5 July 2013 (UTC) --Mattes (talk) 17:29, 6 July 2013 (UTC))

  • I am not opposed to using such templates if you want to build them. However, I think you should provide for using standard {{location}} or {{object location}} templates, rather than building your own coord templates. I oppose private location templates.
What does "approved" mean, and who is the approver? Does it mean the location is approved? or the template is approved?
Please make the location corrections to your figure File:Deutsches Zeichen 260 alt.JPG. If the given location is not correct—which appears to be the case—you should put in the correct location or remove it entirely. •••Life of Riley (TC) 19:10, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Reg. {{location}}: Do you mean {{location/Geo data according to EXIF/approved}} etc.? Reg: "approved": Itwould mean the geo data is true (according to reality, not EXIF). Readers must evenutally trust the approval (whicht could be set by anyone, even if that character did not perform a check, so that remains a little problem.). Reg. File:Deutsches Zeichen 260 alt.JPG: I have left a note (later on, it would qualify for "Template:Geo data according to EXIF/not approved"). Geo data sometimes gets inserted by Bots. So if the EXIF is incorrect, someone deletes the geo data from the Commons file, and a Bot copies the EXIF geo data to the Commons file again, and so on. So we need a solution here, too. Maybe some bot command "don't copy EXIF data in file" or something. Or someone digs out the geo data from the file history or from EXIF and puts it in the Commons file. Anyway, at a glance, no one knows what the geo data in the Commons file is based upon (and if it's according to the reality). Thanks for your comments. --Mattes (talk) 22:18, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. Now I understand what you mean by approved—it means do not trust the bots, but verify the coords for yourself! However, I do not understand where the bots get the latitude and longitude. The coordinates are not showing in the EXIF data on the page. I have seen this many times, and I still don't understand. Does the bot erase the EXIF data from the photograph? Why does it not show? •••Life of Riley (TC) 00:48, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes, any device capable of recording GPS data leaves the coordinates (and mostly the magnetic direction) in the EXIF and gets transferred along with the media file as meta data, look here for example (Latitude 47° 43′ 33.43″ N

Longitude 10° 19′ 8.99″ E). Strange: In the road sign photo above, there are GPS recordings but these are not displayed in the EXIF (but a bot claims that they are). There is a lot mor of meta data recordings in the EXIF file but Commons seems to display a few. Just compare it to a commons file with EXIF data and the output of this tool. Deleting EXIF needs a separate modification and re-upload (don't think that bots can handle that). --Mattes (talk) 12:33, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

That is a good EXIF tool. Now I see that the problem is with Commons: It does not display all the EXIF data. Which is unfortunate, because now I have to take an extra step to find out the true coordinates in some cases. But back to the original subject our our discussion: The previously discussed photograph. Do you recall where you took the picture? •••Life of Riley (TC) 16:18, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Tried to recall but I failed to do it, somewhere south of the village en route to the lake two years ago. I have posted the template ideas @ Commons talk:Geocoding#Building new photo loc template. Greetings, --Mattes (talk) 17:29, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Invalid camera coordinates[edit]

Hello, I am afraid that a bot restores the removed invalid coordinates. There is a template, to prevent that, but I can't find it. Do you know that template? --Havang(nl) (talk) 17:27, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

No, I don't know what template that is. But I would be interested to know where you found the invalid coordinates that had been restored by the bot. •••Life of Riley (TC) 19:00, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
The camera keeps sometimes locations from earlier photo's in its memory, and that appears on uploading ==>I am afraid that may-be 5% of camera locations are incorrect. If removed during upload or afterwards, a bot adds them. By the way, thanks for this, I didn't know how to get it settled. --Havang(nl) (talk) 13:54, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
I think not everyone uses camera location vs. object location correctly. Many times I have seen the two templates used incorrectly. Camera location is preferred, so they say, but a picture can use both templates. •••Life of Riley (TC) 03:50, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Location template as part of the description field[edit]

Please respect that some users prefer to place the {{Location}} template into the "Description" field of {{Information}} template, for well-founded structural reasons. Edits consisting only in transfer of the template to the place preferred by you can be felt as controversial. --ŠJů (talk) 23:49, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks...[edit]

..for adding coordinates to File:340 Madison Avenue.jpg. It's appreciated. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:54, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

You are entirely welcome. •••Life of Riley (TC) 20:05, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

{{Coor}}[edit]

Hello,
I saw this modification to replace {{Coor}} with a lot of wikisyntax.
Don't you have a template to do that jobs ?
You could use {{Object location}} for example.
Because, You really can't replace such a simple code by such a long and non-standardized code.
Regards Liné1 (talk) 16:52, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

I do not have a template. I just use an Excel spreadsheet to do the formatting and then paste it into the page. For categories, inline coordinates are really better than object location. The object location template is intended to fit in with the information template on individual file pages. •••Life of Riley (TC) 16:59, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
The purpose of a template is:
  • simple in usage: {{Coord}} was simple, your syntax (involving table + formating) is not
  • Homogeneous display. With your syntax, a contributor can change the table, the formating, the text => not homogeneous.
  • Factorisation for further improvment. I could modify {{Coord}} to provide, for example, an internationalisation of the term "Location", or the color, or the style... With your solution it is not possible
Liné1 (talk) 18:32, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
  • You will observe that my entry is nothing more than {{inline coordinates}} with a little formatting around the paragraph. The template is not changed in any way. •••Life of Riley (TC) 18:39, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm unclear why you are replacing {{Coor}} with {{Object location}}. If Coor is obsolete, why not have a bot make the change? Evrik (talk) 16:53, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Because he doesn't replace it with a template call, but by wiki syntax. I am not happy with that. Liné1 (talk) 20:45, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Bots are not making that change. And contrary to Liné1's assertion, I am using template calls. I am replacing it with either Object Location for files or with Inline Coordinates for categories. •••Life of Riley (TC) 04:35, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
