On a QI candidate

Hi there,you declined Fire,Fire buning bright.JPG on the grounds of it being noisy.Is there anything that can be done to bring it up to quality image level? Thank you for your time - Amog |Talk 09:45, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

If not,please tell me if this picture at least,is worth a candidature: Red tulips melbourne.JPG - Amog |Talk 09:54, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
You might try to use some noise reduction software (such as Neat Image) or use a lower ISO value on your camera. But the other thing I notice on your images is some posterization (largish areas of monochrome colour), also on the tulip pic (the yellows, e.g.). That's another thing that you should try to avoid. Furthermore, if the topic is an animal or a plant the species name or cultivar (for a garden variety) should be given. I know that's a lot of requirements, but that is the way QI works. Cheers. Lycaon 12:28, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the advice:)I tried out Neat Image,and it worked out brilliantly! Here's a newer version of the sunset picture: [1].Is this good enough for a QI? May i re-apply? Thank you - Amog |Talk 14:09, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
Re-applying is always an option ;-). Lycaon 07:38, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
I did,too :) Now it's sitting without a review.Was it that un-inspiring? Heh - Amog |Talk 14:37, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
It is a bit calm at QI lately: not enough assessors, plenty of nominations. I've had quite a few unassessed images on QI myself recently. Don't worry, You have eight days. Lycaon 15:44, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

It is now May

And so after the end of April. Can I fill in the nom? Regards --Herby talk thyme 08:10, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

FPC flooding

Hi. I don't think it is a good idea to flood FPC with similar images. The only thing that will probably happen is that people get bored and don't vote, or alternatively votes might be spread over all the images and none of them may reach FP-status. Could I kindly ask you to remove those noms and nominate them one by one (say one a week)?. Thanks Lycaon 07:49, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

I have spent days asking around over this. No one raised objections and now I deal with this. It is kinda frustrating. I will remove all deep space ones for now except the main poster per below. However I will not spend the next 61 weeks nominating these one by one. That is not very reasonable. Don't you think?
I would however do not object if you took over the nomination thing. I simply do not want to spend so much time on the page. :)
-- Cat ちぃ? 08:23, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi White Cat. Please just nominate two or three of your favourites at a time. FPC is not really usable with umpteen similar pictures nominated. I removed them for now. --norro 08:14, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

You do NOT remove someone elses nomination like that. I am very irked. Do not do it again. -- Cat ちぃ? 08:23, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

You have recentely nominated in COM:FPC 60 images of coliding galaxies. I suggest you to keep only the poster (which has them all), as there is no way each of the pictures can have a fair and accurate evaluation from the usual reviewers and they disturbing the normal working of the page. Alvesgaspar 08:18, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

See above. -- Cat ちぃ? 08:23, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. Lycaon 09:09, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Reviewing request

Hi Lycaon,

thanks for your review on my picture, promoted for qi. Could you be so kind reviewing this following edit with a few words here on your discussion page? Background, I've tried another software for raw image processing:

Canada Goose - other edit


The picture has clearly improved, but altogether lack of details still prevents it from becoming a QI. I fear that the original was not good enough. Pity, cause the reduced version looks great. Lycaon 12:48, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! I'll trying to work on lenses and tripod techniques in future :) --XN 13:47, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Multi FP template

Hi witte poes, I have a comment on your template. It gives a non existent page for the german wikipedia, e.g. on Tibia insulaechorab .jpg, while my own box has the correct reference. Could you please look into this? Thanks. Lycaon 17:01, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes I am aware. We had a similar problem with Spanish wikipedia after a rather brief discussion es.wiki adopted a standardized scheme. I will compensate with code if de.wiki doesn't agree. -- Cat ちぃ? 17:09, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
OK, then that will be solved eventually. thanks. Lycaon 17:21, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

BTW, your computer bot is now even double tagging... Lycaon 17:05, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes I am aware. It is easier to tag first and then deal with duplicates by hand or software. :) -- Cat ちぃ? 17:09, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
It is a bit disconcerting though, as those edits all show up in my watchlist. Lycaon 17:21, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
You should not see my bot's edits. Its a flagged bot. It may be a setting issue. You are welcome to help deal with duplicates :) I am kind of holding back from that task because I want to process all wikis first so as not to wate time with duplicates. I have processed de.wiki, tr.wiki, es.wiki, and en.wiki so far. -- Cat ちぃ? 17:23, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Re:"Removing an FPX template does NOT mean removing a user's remarks!! — Lycaon 05:00, 9 May 2008 (UTC)" My apologies about that, I'm new here and the template said if you disagree to remove it so I just took out the whole line, I'll remember that for next time!

Size

Accident de voitures sur l'avenue Charles de Gaulle à Ouagadougou.jpg

Hi, I don't understand what you modified in this picture to change the size like that... Is that a better JPEG compression ? Or something else ? Romanceor 15:32, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Which community?

"per community request"? Which community? -- Cat ちぃ? 15:07, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Noise in Galaxy pictures

That "noise" are individual stars (or clusters of them). If I were to process the image to remove them, this would no longer be an image of a galaxy. The dust like noise are hundreds or thousands of individual stars. -- Cat ちぃ? 18:05, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:Bug and fly May 2008-1.jpg

This fly was killed by a crab spider in the morning. I returned to the same spot in the afternoon and there was this strange creature apparently feeding on the remains. I have no idea of what it is, not even if it is a bug or a beetle. Look at the long antennae (or palps?). Any idea? -- Alvesgaspar 20:52, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Joaquim. No success so far. I've seen this thing before (a picture). It is a bug (Heteroptera), but I haven't found a name yet. I'll keep on searching. ;-) Lycaon 22:02, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Thanks Hans, I'm really puzzled with this one. Are you sure it is an heteropteran? I went through all bug families and I couldn't find this kind of long and thick antennae. Have you noticed the sucking beak? -- Alvesgaspar 23:38, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

From Messier to messiness

I just read the page {{ITIS}} and I have been making a mess of things if what I understand from reading that is correct. I have been putting tribe into the Cronquist System information and it doesn't go there. I did this because I simply did not like the number of genus there were here: http://www.itis.gov/servlet/SingleRpt/SingleRpt?search_topic=TSN&search_value=35420 eh, not there 'here' but here at the commons as listed there, at ITIS.

Am I correct in saying that I was wrong? -- carol 07:25, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

ITIS has of course it uses and is often a good (be it incomplete) source. However, they tend not to bother with the fine art of subdivisions. Tribes are necessary and useful when they have been taxonomically defined. In Asteraceae, e.g. they are a must. Lycaon 07:35, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the very prompt reply. My solution was going to be to strip which ever system did not break that family into tribes from wherever I had put it. I just made a quick review of things (a review that I had opted to ask you about instead of looking myself) are the words legion and cohort supposed to be in the scheme as they are at en:Tribe (biology)? And those systems are about things at the top of the (for lack of a better word) the break down? -- carol 08:39, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Help needed with the Valued images project

As you may have seen, this project is going live for nominations on 1 June, 2008 at 0:00 UTC. Before then, there are a few things to be finished off, and any help you can give will be welcome. The latest discussion is at Commons talk:Valued images candidates#Open action items for Valued images.

When the project launches publicly on 1 June, it will need reviewers who are able to jump in quickly and provide prompt feedback. During those critical first few weeks it will be important to have a decent number of reviewers who are prepared to put in the effort to make sure the first nominations are well-reviewed, as that will set the standard for the future.

Would you help, please, with the final tasks now, and also pledge your help with some reviewing on 1 June and thereafter? --MichaelMaggs 17:08, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

VI closure

Hi Lycaon,

I have written down a proposal concerning VI nomination closure. I'd like to hear your opinion on the procedure because you have a lot of experience with closure. I have tried to find a balance between providing sufficient structure and keeping the workload for the closer down.

In particular, I have tried to lessen the burden of maintaining a monthly log. This happens behind you bag in monthly categories, when subsituting {{VI-add}} onto the image page (where it is replaced by a {{VI}} template with some added date related parameters generated during the substitution).

Also I propose not to have a parallel subject hierarchy as in QI and FP (Animals, landscapes, natural phenomena, and so on) as it seems that closers always run into problems that there is really not a fitting category). Rather I propose to weave in the VIs in the normal category/gallery structure, as it is here the editors looking for specific material will notice it.

You may want to review my structuring proposal right above as it gives some further insight. -- Slaunger 12:18, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

question

Hi, Hans,
May I please ask you how the media of the day is selected? I also like to ask you about your orchid. I wonder, if you saw a bee, who polinates it? Thank you. --Mbz1 14:17, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

About the orchid (I guess you mean this one?), I didn't hang around long enough to see the pollinator (in casu the bee Andrena morio), as I had only three days to discover 'all' the orchids of Sardinia ;-).
As for the potd, that is up to the contributor who first fills in the spot. Lycaon 22:09, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Valued images test review phase has ended

Dear Hans,

Thank you for participating in the development of the Valued images project by test nominating one or more candidates. We have used the input from the test reviews to fine-tune the guidelines, process and templates used, hereby hopefully improving the setup.

We have now decided that on June 1, 2008 at 0:00 (UTC), the valued image project will be opened for official nominations. To get ready for the grand opening, we will close down the last remaining open test candidates in a few hours, such that the candidates list pages are emptied and ready.

Since there has been a certain amount of instruction creep over the course of the test review pahse, we have decided that all promoted and declined candidates from the test review phase will be reset to the so-called "undecided" state prior to the opening. This means that test valued image candidate review pages all end up in Category:Undecided valued images candidates and the test sets end up in Category:Undecided valued image set candidates.

The votes from the original test review will be archived in a previous reviews subpage and reset upon renomination.

Although all nominations will be reset, you, as a test nominator, will still have the advantage that each candidate can be re-nominated beginning June 1 0:00 UTC. The votes from the original test review will be archived in a previous reviews subpage and reset upon renomination. Click on the links to the aforementioned categories for instruction on how to renominate.

In addition, the project has decided to re-nominate all candidates, which were test promoted, unless you tell us not to do so on my talk page. Also, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or problems relating to valued images.

I hope, you will also take part in the project once it goes on the air, either as nominator, maintainer and/or reviewer.

Happy editing, -- Slaunger 21:59, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

VI seal

the fate of the pet alligator

How many words equals a potential QI candidate

I just transcribed a title and seriously do not want to waste the enormous effort it took me to transcribe this title on a mere article. Here it is: "The Journal of Botany: Being a Second Series of the Botanical Miscellany; Containing Figures and Descriptions of Such Plants as Recommend Themselves by Their Novelty, Rarity or History, or by the Uses to Which They are Applied in the Arts, in Medicine, and in Domestic Œconomy; Together With Occasional Botanical Notices and Information"

As it is just a title, it seems to me as if it should qualify for something. Thoughts? I was thinking that it wouldn't take that large of a font to make the pixel minimum as perscribed by the guidelines. -- carol (tomes) 13:53, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

VIs of visually distinct species

Hi Hans, I am a little bit surprised by your withdrawal of the parasite image and your associated message, which seemed to express some frustration. Especially I think Michaels question is relevant and I do not think it is that fair to snap at him for posting a question (or is it carol you are snapping at?). I know you have earlier argued that any species could warrant a VI. That makes sense as long as the species are visually distinct. There are many species where you cannot id the species just based on a photograph of it, so I think we have to draw a line somewhere when it comes to photographs of species. Otherwise nominators could start claiming that uncertainly identified species is this and that and nominate that for VIC. Therefore I think the question posed by Michael is relevant. We all know you are an expert in identification of marine animals, so it is only natural to ask what is the difference? You mention the host animal for instance. Is that specific for the species?

Can there then be a VI for any species. I think so, but for very similar species I do not think those VIs are photographs but rether illustrations and or drawings detailing the differences between the species or highlighting exactly what identifies a certain species.

I saw a cat disagreemnent later on, on this one I am with you: Being in a species category is just fine. As a matter of fact it is probably better than having it in a species cat. -- Slaunger 21:56, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

I would like you to reconsider the withdrawal of the cat disagreement one. -- Slaunger 21:58, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
Oops, sometimes a little letter means a lot. Maybe it was good we had the category discussion after all? I was actually pretty amazed that you (apparently) had been in the middle of the Amazon jungle far far way from road just to photograph this caterpillar. :-) -- Slaunger 23:16, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
I am glad you have withdrawn the withdrawals. Do you feel the process is more on track now? How about the one I absentmindedly in a state of premature Alzheimers closed as declined. Should I do something about that, or should we just leave it be? -- Slaunger 20:49, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Revert war

Hi Hans, I can see a long history that has lead to this and have seen a fair few other odd interactions in my time here.

FP Candidate Iguazu Falls

Good day

I saw your vote on the FP Candidate page about my picture. From you and other users, I recieved opposing vote because my image contains either artifacts or a lack of details. Here is the comment I posted on the voting page in reaction to your votes:

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Please consider the fact that the image is 4800 x 3500 pixels. You are judging it from it's quality (artifacts, details) when viewed at 100%. Pictures stitched with Hugin have artifacts from the manipulation (rotation, deformation of the original image). Have a look when I downsample this image to 2000x1500 px, (the same size than the previous and following candidates images), and you can clearly see that my image has the required levels of details and no artifacts. From the guidelines: "it is important that nominated pictures have as high a resolution as possible". If the artifacts and lack of details at 100% is the only reason why it fails FP nomination, if I upload a downsampled version of this image, would you change your vote? If yes, then we need to change the guidelines. -- S23678 18:33, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

If my picture presents problems other than lack of details or artifacts, please state it in your vote. However, if was the only reason for your opposing vote, please reconsider your position basing yourself on my arguments, and either cancel your vote, make it neutral, or support my picture if you now think it's a FP.

I also posted a comment about this on the FP candidates talk page. Feel free to add your comments.

Thank You

English Wikipedia is a bureaucracy and they are constantly rerunning Did You Knows and things like that. I am summarizing many images and stories and no real facts that I can cite, but it seems like "community" behavior is at its worse when uniformity is demanded.
I don't remember this happening so much before 1980, but there seems to be a lot of power obtained by doing a lot of wrong things to a person who tries to be communicative. Then when the communicative person changes the nature of the communication enough in an honest attempt, that the attempt becomes the issue and not the wrongs that initiated the attempt. The actual wrongdoings never get looked at. Bureaucracy devolves into functioning like that. I think (or my wish is) that Hans does not want to be in a situation like that. -- carol (talk) 22:52, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Not really. Lumbricidae is as good a guess as any, but I'm not convinced. That doesn't mean however that I would oppose if another user would support.

OK, I am wondering how important the taxonomy is for the scope of "Earthworm feces".
