Grüss dich. Es ist nicht wichtig aber- Im Bild, gibt es Eine toplesse Frau- nicht nackte. Ich hatte dem text nicht gelesen . Es ist Karnival Umzug wie man oft sieht. Untern es sagt, sie is eine FKKAnhängerin (wie fast 50% meine Deutsche Freunden) aber im photo steht sie Textilistin. Im photo, gibt es kein DFK /VFK schild. --ClemRutter (talk) 10:56, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Foundry Painter

With reference to the Tondo Kylix by the Foundry Painter 480 b.c. of a woman urinating: I believe that it should be considered that she is giving birth. The line from the pubic to naval is a particular feature of women during pregnancy and I can't imagine another reason it would have been indicated here other than to denote a pregnancy. Also, this is not an obligatory position for female urination, but it is for giving birth.

No, definetly not. This is e hetaira - this is of course not the obligatory position for female urination - because this is a "show" for the male audience. The image sadly don't show the whole scene. At the original in Berlin you can see the urine stream. It's also common in science, that this is an urination. There's no doubt. But it's interesting, what you say. But at the end you're view is caused of the not so good image. Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:19, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Suche Hilfe mit drei Bilder vom flussinfo.net

Ich möchte gern diese drei Bilder vom flussinfo.net untersuchen:

Ich habe flussinfo.net gefragt ob wir Ihre Bilder auf Commons legen dürfen. Sie haben leider nein gesagt. Dafür wollte ich untersuchen ob der Fotograf selbst die Bilder auf gelegt haben. Ich brauche Ihre Hilfe weil die Bilder vom de: gelöscht sind. Als du sicher sehen kannst dann bin ich nicht Deutch aber ich hoffe das Ich verständlich bist :-) Viel Dank MGA73 (talk) 20:19, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Wie stellst du dir meine Hilfe vor? Ich weiß jetzt nicht genau, was ich machen könnte. Marcus Cyron (talk) 10:46, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Ach so, du kannst meine Gedanken nicht lesen? :-D Wenn Ich recht habe, dann bist du admin auf de-wiki. Auf de:Datei:Treene_bei_wohlde.jpg sehe ich dass Jürgen Clausen der Fotograf ist und dass er „Benutzer:Flussmensch” ist. Sind alle drei bilder vom Flussmensch erstes Mahl auf gelegt?

German translations

Hi Marcus,

As I just achieved to make the museum templates (like {{Information Staatliche Antikensammlungen}}) autotranslatable, we need now more translations. Can you propose a German translation for each fields ("Artist/Maker", "Description", etc.)?

Thanks. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 12:53, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

I will try my best :). Marcus Cyron (talk) 18:08, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
PS: Where and how to change? Marcus Cyron (talk) 18:10, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Bibi's probably referring to {{Meta information museum}}, which is called by {{Information Staatliche Antikensammlungen}}. To create a new translation for Meta information museum, simply visit the template page and use the inputbox at the bottom of the page. This will take you to an edit window, where the English version is preloaded. Replace the English strings with German ones and you're done. Regards, -- ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 18:40, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I must admit this is not that simple... So if you want you can just write me the translations, I'll integrate them where necessary. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 19:22, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
OK. Then so:
  • Header (Kopfzeile): Staatliche Antikensammlungen, München, Deutschland
  • Artist/Maker: Künstler/Produzent
  • Description: Beschreibung
  • Dimensions: Ausmaße
  • Credit line: (???)
  • Accession number: Inventarnummer
  • Location: Standort
  • References: Anmerkungen
  • Source/Photographer: Herkunft/Fotograf
  • Other versions: Andere Versionen

-- Marcus Cyron (talk) 17:50, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

OK, I created the German translation. "Credit line" is generally used for the mode of acquisition of the work by the museum (gift, purchase...) and the former collections. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 09:46, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
OK, then I would call it "Objektgeschichte". Marcus Cyron (talk) 11:14, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Then it's finished! Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 11:52, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Wouldn't it rather be "Provenienz"? Just wondering. Wikisource-logo.png Jonathan Groß Wikipedia-logo.png 07:25, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Category:Nike from Olimpia

Hallo Marcus,

ich kenn mich hier nicht so aus mit den Gepflogenheiten, darum bitte ich Dich um Hilfe. Die Category:Nike from Olimpia ist nicht nur falsch geschrieben, sondern sachlich falsch. In der Forschungsliteratur heißt die Statue nirgends anders als Nike des Paionios, darum hätte ich den Namen gern in Category:Nike of Paionios geändert. Ich bin durch ein paar Ausgrabungsfotos von 1875/1876 darüber gestolpert. Gruß, Wikisource-logo.png Jonathan Groß Wikipedia-logo.png 07:22, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Etruskische Sammlung im MMA

Hallo Marcus,

Ich bin wie gesagt gerade dabei, Bilder aus der etruskischen Sammlung im MMA hochzuladen: Category:Etruscan antiquities in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Ich bin damit länst noch nicht fertig, aber du kannst helfen, die Objekte nach Form und Stil zu sortieren, ich kenne mich nicht besonders gut aus und kann nur anhand des Aussehens einsortieren. Ich denke, Du kennst dich insbesondere in antiker Keramik aus, da gibt es noch viel einzusortieren (oder von mir falsch kategorisierte Objekte richtig zu kategorisieren): Category:Etruscan pottery in the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Gruss --Kurpfalzbilder.de (talk) 15:35, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Hallo, klar, ich schau es mir gerne an. Marcus Cyron (talk) 20:58, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Hm, wir haben eventuell ein Problem. Zwei der Vasen waren definitiv griechisch, bei anderen bin ich mir recht sicher, daß sie es sind. Hast du nicht vielleicht auch die Beschreibungen fotografiert (so mache ich das immer)?. Denn nur weil Vasen in Etrurien gefunden wurden, sind sie es meist nicht, sondern Importe aus Griechenland. Diese wurden allerdings auch von etruskischen Töpfern nachgeahmt, deshalb sind Unterscheidungen nicht immer leicht. Die dunklen nicht bemalten Gefäße scheinen alle Bucchero zu sein, obwohl vielleicht auch Impasto dabei ist. Möglicherweise haben wir allein auf den Bildern in der Kat ein halbes Dutzend verschiedener Herkunftsorte und ebenso viele Techniken und Stile. Und die CVA-Bände zum MMA sind durchweg nicht besonders gut, zudem ist die Sammlung nicht weit bearbeitet, so kann man da auch schlecht nachprüfen, obwohl sie sogar online sind. Da du die Sachen gesehen und hoch geladen hast, sind sie dir vertrauter als mir, ich müßte immer switchen. Aber wenn du deine Bilder wirklich brauchbar machen möchtest, kannst du ja mal versuchen einige deiner Bilder auf den folgenden Webseiten (alle blätterbar) zu finden:
Diese Fehler habe ich am Anfang auch selbst gemacht. Von mir schwirren noch einige nicht brauchbare Bilder hier rum, aber ich versuche das nach und nach zu beheben. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:37, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
PS: Ach ja, das hier ist nicht rot- sondern schwarzfigurig. Das ist eine Stil-, nicht zwingend eine Farbbezeichnung. Ist für einen Laien bei diesem Fehlbrand sicher schwer zu erkennen. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:41, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
PPS: Sind alles tolle Bilder, die müssen wir irgendwie retten, daß sie auch wirklich nutzbar werden. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:44, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Marcus Cyron!

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.

Überschrift

Hallo Marcus,

die Commons-Welt ist manchmal sehr unübersichtlich. Ich würde gerne die File:Brisk Fingaz Feat. Godsilla - Schicksal.ogg löschen lassen, da mir die Urheberrechte sehr fraglich vorkommen, abgesehen davon halte dich die Datei wegen der eingeblendeten Werbung generell für ungeeignet. Mir sind die verschiedensten Bausteine von Commons nicht wirklich bekannt und ich bin doch immer wieder etwas überfordert hier etwas in dieser Hinsicht zu unternehmen. So was wie „unser“ DÜP gibt es hier wohl nicht, oder? Gruß --blunt. (talk) 15:17, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Ganz ehrlich - ich weiß es nicht. Löschanträge in diesem Projekt zu stellen ist auch mir ein Buch mit sieben Siegeln. Nur für Profis machbar. Ich kopiere mir bei Bedarf die Anträge aus entsprechenden Dateien. Ganz ehrlich - ich halte das Commons-Systen, das sich nahe am en-WP-System orientiert, für eine unglaubliche Zumutung und Frechheit.

Memnon Pieta

Hi Marcus,

I could easily recognize it among others... Is it part of the cake (it would very impressive) or just a paper put on the top? I hope it was good anyway!

Are you going to live permanently in Berlin? Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 13:12, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Look here. It's really part of the Cake. And the Cake was (still is, für 3 persons a lot too much ;)) good. Not the best, but OK. Created by User:Elya (Admin here) and User:Raymond (Commons Oversight).
And yes, I will live permanet in Berlin. So I'm also "bookable" for Pictures there (I was also here in Cologne, but Berlin is ofcourse much more important). And my new Camera isn't one of a Professional, but much better than the old one... ;). Marcus Cyron (talk) 15:29, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks :). Yes, I will be have a lot do do (and will have a season ticket). Btw - whenever you will be in Berlin, you could find Accomodation by me if you like (same is valid for Jastrow ofcourse, you're both my french heroes ;)).

Wünschen für den Commons-Admin ..

Könntest Du mir bitte auf folgenden Seiten versehentlich hochgeladene Bilder aus Commons wieder herauslöschen (als normaler User kann ich das ja leider nicht). In beiden Fällen handelt es sich um die ALTE Version (da hab ich mich beim Hochladen verklickt), nicht um das aktuelle Bild (das ist ok) http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:CymerAbby13.jpg http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DolgellauBruecke2.jpg

und dann hätte ich noch eine alte Videoversionen, die nur Platz wegnehmen und eigentlich gelöscht werden sollten (die aktuelle Version aber bitte nicht!) http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Samson-mauterndorf-2.ogg Vielen Dank --HelgeRieder (talk) 14:12, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Helge, die Bilder habe ich gelöscht, Versehen ist eben ein Versehen (allerdings sahen sie doch gut aus). Das Video muß ich nicht löschen, da ich es eh nicht aus dem System löschen könnte. Sie wäre nur nicht mehr erreichbar. Den Platz würde das Video weiter einnehmen. Also kann es auch genauso bleiben. Grüße. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:32, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Viele Dank!! - ich sehe, Du musstest wohl auch die letzte Version löschen. Aber die kann ich ja dann problemlos wieder hochladen. Das Dover-Bild kommt dann noch mal mit der richtigen Benennung. - Das Video muss ich eh mal durch eine hoehere Aufloesung ersetzen. Das derzeitige stammt noch aus der Zeit mit 15MB Obergrenze ..

Eo Romam

Hi Marcus. I can't remember if I told you -- on Friday I'll fly to Rome. I'm going to stay for 10 days and take as many pictures as I can in museums. As usual, I'll focus on Greco-Roman art. Let me know if you or a German user need pictures about someone or something (I'll have Internet access). Jastrow (Λέγετε) 09:05, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

I'll go to the Vatican Museums indeed. Regarding vases, the Villa Giulia Museum didn't allow pictures three years ago and the Museo Gregoriano Etrusco is closed most of the time... If you have a new request, please add it to User:Jastrow/TODO Rome. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 13:36, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi Marcus, I'm back! I bring back heaps of pictures from Rome, but sadly, I couldn't honour your requests. The Braccio Nuovo, which holds the Augustus of Prima Porta, was closed (chiuso is a word you learn real quick in Italy). The Museo Etrusco Gregoriano had many rooms closed, so I could shoot only a few vases. I want to the Galleria Colonna but they didn't allow pictures; anyway, I didn't see the Knöchelspielerin in the exposed works.

Re your move to Berlin, that's great news for us! I hope I'll be able to spend a week-end there to visit the Museumsinsel. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 18:07, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I know it. The National Museum was nearly comlete closed, as I was in Rome. But the Etruscan Museum was all open - I never saw so much Vases like there before ;). But I had no Interest for them at this time ;). At the end, every picture you've made is a little mosaic-stone here. And I would bet, it was'nt the last trip to Rome from one of us. And depending Berlin - I will look forward :). Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:41, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Bildverzerrung

Hallo Marcus! Weißt Du zufällig, wie man folgenden Bug beseitigen kann? Wenn ich ein Bild auf Commons zuschneide und unter demselben Name neu hochlade, wird es in allen Artikeln schrecklich verzerrt (in den alten Dimensionen) angezeigt. Aktuelles Beispiel: Günther Bachthaler. Kann man dagegen etwas anderes tun als die alte Version des Bildes zu löschen? Viele Grüße, Wikisource-logo.png Jonathan Groß Wikipedia-logo.png 09:25, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Ich habe nicht den Anflug einer Ahnung. Frag das am besten mal beim Commons:Forum. Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:14, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
Wenn ich mich mal einmischen darf: Das liegt daran, dass dein Browser noch die alte Version des Bildes und/oder der entsprechenden Seiten im Cache hat. Normalerweise liegt das Bild noch im Cache und die Seite wird neu geladen. Da das Bild ja nach einer Beschneidung in der Regel ein anderes Seitenverhältnis hat, wird es auf der Seite mit dem neuen Seitenverhältnis eingebunden. Dein Browser hat aber noch das alte Bild, stellt also das alte Bild mit dem neuen Seitenverhältnis dar, was logischerweise zu einer verzerrten Darstellung führt. Das Problem siehst also nur du, bei anderen Benutzern ist alles in Ordnung. Um das zu beheben, musst du den Browser-Cache leeren, das geht z.B. beim Firefox Shift-Reload der entsprechenden Seite. Wenn es dann immer noch falsch dargestellt wird, kannst du auch das Bild purgen (gibt auf jeder Beschreibungsseite oben einen Link dazu), das führt dann dazu, dass alle Miniaturansichten des Bildes neu gerendert werden. Jetzt nochmal die entsprechenden Seiten mit Shift-Reload neu laden und die Darstellung sollte passen. Beste Grüße, -- ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 14:39, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
Nachtrag: In diesem konkreten Fall war das letztere das Problem: Der Server hat keine neue Miniaturansich generiert, mit dem Ergebnis, dass die alte Miniaturansicht weiterhin angezeigt wurde, aber eben mit dem neuen Seitenverhältnis, was zu der Verzerrung geführt hat. Ich habe die Seite gepurget, jetzt funktioniert alles. Wenn du es immer noch falsch angezeigt bekommst, musst du mit Shift-Reload die Artikelseite neu laden.

Hi Dorio. This an an corinthian votiv-Pinax (here is not an correct image used, this is not an Pinax!). It shows a part of the process of the making ceramics. It's founf in Penteskouphia.

Hallo Marcus,

Ich kann nicht den Settecamini-Maler in die Liste der griechischen Töpfer und Vasenmaler/S finden. Ist es ein Versäumnis? Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 12:50, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Bibi, schön mal wieder etwas von dir zu hören :). Nein, das ist kein Versäumnis. Die Liste ist schlich nicht komplett. Wird sie auch nie sein, da es immer Bewegungen bei den Zuschreibungen gibt. Ich persönlich denke, daß dort etwa 50-75% aller bekannten Notnamen und nahezu alle bekannten Realnamen aufgeführt sind. Die Liste ist also ständig erweiterbar und ich arbeite auch immer wieder daran, wenn ich neue Literatur auswerte. Du kannst da natürlich jederzeit ergänzen, wenn du fehlende Maler/Töpfer findest/kennst. Grüße Marcus Cyron (talk) 12:41, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Marcus, jemandem zu sagen, er sei out of scope, ist m.E. schon fast menschenverachtend (historische Analogien erspare ich mir). Ok, vielleicht hast du es nicht beabsichtigt.

Tag Removal

Hi Marcus, could you please remove the tag of Craig Driffill in the pictures of the british biathletes, I am now a teacher and do not want my students to have access to these pictures for obvious reasons, thankyou Craig.

Hi Craig, I'm a bit confused - where is the problem with the images? They are totally harmless and you would be a model for a sportive man. For school pupils this is important, I think. Marcus Cyron (talk) 14:41, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Could you remove my name from the pictures please, thankyou Craig.

The article was this and i cant publish in wiki another time because anybody don't let me do it. This is the deleted article. Could you publish it? You can find more information in http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arch%C3%A9og%C3%A9ographie

Arqueogeografía thumb|En 1968 David. L. Clarke publicó Analytical Archaeology, incorporando el concepto de sistema al campo de la arqueología thumb|Una de las corrientes de la arqueología es la Arqueología Aérea. Este estudio de aerotopografía esta publicado en Roma (2007). thumb|En el número 167-168 de Études Rurales (2007) G. Chouquer publicó un artículo en el que subraya la importancia de estudiar los cambios en el paisaje de las sociedades antiguas. [[Archivo:Desde_la_ortodoxia.jpg|thumb|En 1989 Javier de Carlos hace una revisión crítica de la Arqueología Espacial y del Análisis de Captación de Recursos al estudiar los dólmenes de la Rioja Alavesa y el Valle de Cuartango.]] [[Archivo:La_arqueogeografia.jpg|thumb|La tesis doctoral presentada en 1990 por Javier de Carlos es el manifiesto y la puesta de largo de la nueva disciplina.]]

La arqueogeografía (del griego ἀρχαίος «antiguo», y γεωγραφία «estudio de la tierra») es una disciplina de la arqueología que estudia la relación entre las sociedades pasadas de carácter arqueológico y el territorio que habitaron. Es decir, estudia el espacio geográfico en el que se desenvolvían los grupos sociales y su relación con el medioambiente. La finalidad de la arqueogeografía es proporcionar información adicional a la propiamente arqueológica para conocer mejor las sociedades pasadas.

La herramienta utilizada es el Método Arqueogeográfico, que es el procedimiento de estudio del territorio que ocuparon las sociedades de carácter arqueológico. Se trata de un Método Científico ya que determina una serie de pasos para formular y responder a una pregunta.

La arqueogeografía estudia frecuentemente las culturas de la prehistoria, aunque en ocasiones también se emplea para conocer mejor la organización social y económica de las sociedades de la protohistoria y de la edad antigua, e incluso en épocas posteriores como la edad media y edad moderna.

La arqueogeografía hoy en día es una disciplina que se estudia en varias universidades en los currículos de titulo de grado y de tipo master.

Fotos der Biennale di Venezia

hi Marcus Cyron, gestern Nacht habe ich 14 Fotos von der Biennale hochgeladen. Scheinbar gelten besondere Regeln in Italien und das Hochladen meiner Bilder verstößt gegen geltendes Recht. Für fünf Fotos hat jemand bereits einen Löschantrag gestellt. Muss/soll ich für die restlichen 9 Fotos jeweils einen Schnelllöschantrag stellen, oder kannst du als Admin die Fotos auch ohne Antrag quasi mit einem "Klick" löschen? Falls das geht, wäre ich dir sehr dankbar, wenn du sie entfernen würdest. Sorry wg. der Umstände und vielen Dank vorab für deine Antwort. Lesekreis (talk) 11:26, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Wenn du das möchtest, kann ich das auch sofort so machen, einfach eine Nachricht mit den entsprechenden Bildern hier hinterlassen. Ich würde allerdings im Commons:Forum nochmal nachfragen, ob es wirklich nötig ist. Manche Leute sind hier manchmal etwas voreilig. Vielleicht wäre es andernfalls möglich, die Bilder in der deutschsprachigen Wikipedia hoch zu laden. Aber da bin ich nicht wirklich fim. Grüße Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:15, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
merci für die rasche Antwort. Ich habe deinen Rat befolgt und den Vorgang im Forum gepostet. Aber wie gesagt, so wichtig sind die Bilder nicht und bevor es deswegen Ärger gibt, lieber löschen. ;-) LG Lesekreis (talk) 15:23, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
Was ist schon "wichtig"? ;) Wer entscheidet das allgemein gültig und zufriedenstellend? Ich könnte es nicht. Fast alle Bilder helfen weiter, wenn sie nicht gerade private Schnappschüsse des Familienlebens sind. Marcus Cyron (talk) 15:47, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Hallo, Ich habe gesehen, dass du das Bild als nicht geeignet als QI bewertet hast. Ich habe aber die Erklärung dazu nicht verstanden. Ich hatte das Bild mit meinem Teleobjektiv gemacht, damit man die Möglichkeit hat, eins der wichtigsten Objekte vom Monument im Detail zu betrachten. Das Objekt an sich ist vollständig und ist das zentrale Element vom „Kloster“. Wo klemmt's?. Viele Grüsse, Poco a poco (talk) 20:51, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi Poco. Detailbilder sind natürlich gut. Aber bei dem Bild sind - da es eben nur ein Detail ist - die Proportionen nicht stimmig. Unten müßte etwas mehr sein, damit man merkt, daß es ein Detail ist, dafür müßte vom Himmel einiges weg. Um unten einzig beim Naiskos anzusetzen, müßte man wiederum oben fast alles vom Himmel entfernen, was generell nicht mehr stimmig wäre. Eine Alternative wäre eine komplette Freistellung des Motivs, was wiederum mit dem eigentlichen Witz des Bildes kollediert - nämlich der Herausarbeitung aus dem Fels. Hättest du das Bild mit etwas mehr Breite und vor allem etwas weiter in die Tife gehend, wäre es sicher super. Dein Kamelbild finde ich aber richtig Klasse. Anders als bei den Architekturbildern, bei denen ich etwas Ahnung habe (Archäologiestudium) traue ich mich bei derartigen Bildern immer nicht so recht zu das zu beurteilen. Grüße. Marcus Cyron (talk) 17:27, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your thoughtful comment here. Although obviously I don't agree, I understand both your reasoning and how hard it is to be the lone voice of dissent in a long string of support. I hope that our work together will eliminate your concerns.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 11:13, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I don't think I'm so alone. But for the most it's not so important. And I don't think I would have given a "no", if there weren't so much "yes". But then I have a Chance to show, that there are problems, we should clear. There never were were concerns against you. Maybe I should had made this more clearly visible. Good luck! :) Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:25, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi Marcus ! I'm wondering what you want to know about me. I know I don't give much information in my user page, so I would be glad to know what people are interesting in. Léna (talk) 07:42, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Not about you as Person. About you as Wikimedian, mostly here on Commons. I wan't to know more about you philosophy, what you want to do in future and so on. I want to know, what kind of an future admin I vote for (or maybe against). With one, two or three phrases I can't see it. Marcus Cyron (talk) 12:11, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Löschung ohne Diskussion

Hallo Marcus! Du hast File:Miki Maloer 1.jpg ohne Diskussion und/oder Benachrichtung meinerseits mit dem Kommentar „false permission (given only for Wikipedia usage -> not really free content” gelöscht. Warum? Alfie↑↓© 10:30, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Hallo. Weil das Bild einzig für die Nutzung in der Wikipedia frei gegeben war, was eine falsche Lizensierung darstellt. Falsche Lizensierung führt zur Löschung der Dateien, das wird direkt beim Upload angezeigt. Wenn du das ändern kannst, kann man das Bild wiederherstellen. Wir dürfen aber schlichtweg nicht wissentlich unfreie Dateien hosten. Wenn du also die Lizenz ändern kannst (Bild von dir gemacht?), stelle ich es dir wieder her. Die Erlaubnis muß aber eben jede Nachnutzung erlauben. Marcus Cyron (talk) 02:21, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Hallo Marcus! Ich habe mich missverständlich ausgedrückt. Die Löschung an sich ist nicht das Problem (das File wurde seit drei Jahren nirgends mehr verwendet) – sondern deine Vorgangsweise (ohne Löschdiskussion & Benachrichtigung des Uploaders). Alfie↑↓© 11:22, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Unnötig. Eine Datei mit falscher Lizenzangabe kann gelöscht werden. Diese Datei war nach unseren Kriterien nicht frei. unfreie Bilder werden gelöscht. Dazu braucht es keine weiteren Diskussionen. Es stand ausdrücklich dabei, daß das Bild einzig für die Nutzung in der Wikipedia frei gegeben war. Das ist ein Schnelllöschgrund. Marcus Cyron (talk) 00:48, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
OK, OK; erl. Alfie↑↓© 12:52, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Using one of your pictures in a textbook

I am thinking of using your picture of the colored Marathon warrior stele (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Rekonstruction_Aristion_warrior_by_Aristokles_-_Bunte_Götter_in_Berlin.jpg) in a textbook. I would remove the background but it would still be your picture. I was wondering if, this being print (so that I can't put a hyperlink), you would want to add any other information to 'Marcus Cyron' in the credits (such as location, an URL, whatever). Just in case, I can be contacted at thechabon aa a t h otm ail d o o t c om. Thanks for uploading that picture. Iiiiaaaa (talk) 22:20, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Cool if you wan't to use the picture. I'm fine when you give the Name - but you also need to give the Licence. I think "[your name] using an image made by [my name], CC-BY-SA-3.0" would be an idea (because you also do something with the picture, so you should be named) - but you don't need to write it between the image ;).

FTW

Hi, I don't understand German. I uploaded the images following the direction of Italian WLM form, the disclaimer comes automatically, so for any further question please contact the Italian board of the contest. As far as I know we received the autorization to shot in some museums, so anything was in could be uploaded. I also understand that images of the works of art could not win due to the subject, but this is ok for me. My first target is to enrich Commons, not to win the contest. As regards the "very bad" categorization, I am not a specialist in ancient pottery, and I always refer to what I read in the captations and in the descriptions of the museum rooms. I can show you pictures of it. I always have to thank the help of specialists smarter than me, like you, that by the way should thank me too as they can see all that many works of art without going to Arezzo or to a library, but standing comfortably seated in front of their PC. Isn't this "very good"? Regards. --Sailko (talk) 15:40, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Pittore di fauvel, kylix, 425-400 ac. ca.JPG
Hi. Problem: You've used a cc-by-sa-Licency - but you also use a template that says, it's not allowed to use the images for every purpose. That's not OK on Commons. I think, we have to delete all your images from the museum. All images on commons have to be free for any use. And - but this is an other point - your descriptions are very bad, the images mostly are not usable, because we don't now, what they show. Attic pottery is given as etruscan, we don't know, what we see. For example the image on the site here. Fauvel Painter is a usefull information. But the Fauvel Painter is an attic painter, not etruscan. With this information we can guess a bit over the date. You never give a date. You never say, what's painted. You never give any discription (the image name is not enough! Images can be moved to other names!) I know how hard this is, how much work. But without informations the images - I know this is hard, but true - useless. But I don't think, I don't want! you're work to be useless! But even with some knowlege in this theme I can't help. There are more than 100.000 ancient greek vases known all over the world. Nobody can know them all. Marcus Cyron (talk) 15:53, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
First, it's not "me" using CC and that tag, it's all the Italian participiants to WLM. Complete category is here, 3000+ files. So don't blame at ME, please. Thank you.
Second, I have uploaded 67.000+ pictures on Commons so far, and I realized, much time ago, I just cannot add a single description to all of them, you just have to raise your eyes a bit and look at the filename. I cannot copy and paste the filename for each of them, it's too much work. Filenames can change, but also descriptions can change, so? I shot the pictures, select them, organize, fix, crop, regulate light, sometimes regulate sharpness and focus, then I put a filename where I describe all the information I have (in Italian, sorry, that's my style), upload and put in the proper categories. I usually describe in objects' filename the author, the title, the period, sometimes I also put the place of origin (if space is enough). It is false I "never give a date", just read: File:Pittore di fauvel, kylix, 425-400 ac. ca.JPG, translated in English it is "Fauvel painter, kylix, about 425-400 BC (last quarter of 5th century BC). I always put the date when it's available. The same is for description of the subject (see another example here, "gynaeceum scene"). If you look here, for instance, there are 9 images uploaded by me, and all have the date. If extra information are not shown it is because they are not provided by the museum captation. So you have to blame the museum, not me, again. Tonight, just to let you see, I will upload the captation of that kylix, so you will see what people can read there (please cancel it then, I think they are not allowed to be uploaded). A useful information I could add is the inventory number, I know, but it's maybe too much job; anyway I keep in my computer a copy of the museum captation, so i can provide it on request. Moreover, I always suppose that if somebody is looking for a specific image, he can go to the category of the museum and just recognize it, even if the description/captation is not the best possible.
Third, I understand I made some mistakes in categorizing one room of that museum, sorry. It was a big room about pottery, which I though all Etruscan, but probably is partially etruscan and partially greek, found in etruscan sites. There is a big lack of information there, so for the categories I just had to guess. I am usually very accurate, but sometime I make mistakes, as everybody. Switching category from Etruscan to Ancient Greek pottery is quite easy, you can do that with the Cat-a-lot gadget in a few seconds. You can also add a description where the filename is wrong (you can write "NB: Filename wrong!"), and maybe later also change the filename. I don't think it's a great problem, it's the wiki style, you see a mistake, you fix it, if you can.
So, dont' get mad at me, ok? And try to safeguard these images, there is a LOT of time and job behind each of those. Thanks.
--Sailko (talk) 17:56, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Maybe I'm too dumb to say what I want to say. Your images too good than to be useless. That's my point. But - und here I can't accept I have uploaded 67.000+ pictures on Commons so far, and I realized, much time ago, I just cannot add a single description to all of them, you just have to raise your eyes a bit and look at the filename. The Informations are not enough. What we need is ((when known)
  • what do we see
  • who made it
  • where it was made (style)
  • when it was made
  • which shape has it
  • where it was found
  • where it is today
Kylix, pittore di Fauvel (425-450 a.C), that's all!

I work in this field since years - and I often find good images like yours - but I can't use them for articles, because the most or all information we need are missing. This is simply sad. To upload 67.000 images are great! But they need all possible informations. I have on my Laptop 25.000 Images from a lot different colloections, who are waiting for the upload. But I will load them up in the Moment I have the time to do it with the propper information. Today I've tried to clean up the Categories and found there your images - images I mostly can not sort in a correct way. And now I'm frustrated. Marcus Cyron (talk) 22:39, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Dear Markus, you are absolutely right, but some of the information you need can be found in the filename, other in the categories. I am attaching a the image I took of the captation of that vase in the museum: you can see the lack of more information depends on them, it's not my fault. :(( I am sorry, but what can I do? It's frustrating for me too, I would really love to add all information. PS: I put the image without license, not sure it can stay on Commons, please delete it after you see it. Thanks. --Sailko (talk) 12:23, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
First: as far as I know now, it is actually so, that we not longer delete files from italian museum like in "older times" and "ignore" the opinions depending the right issues outside of Itlay. I'm really fine with that! :) To the Vases: in the german Wikipedia we have the possibility to get Literature from Wikimedia Deutschland or Wikimedia Austria (see there). In the pictures are very often a hint to the CVA (sadly no article in italian, here the link to en:WP). Would you be inerestet in getting the fitting CVA book? Maybe the german literature grant could give you the book! So you (or maybe an other person who speaks italian, I guess, the italian CVAs are written in Italien, so I sadly can't use them) could "upgrade" the picture informations?! Marcus Cyron (talk) 19:26, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
This is very interesting, I didn't know that! Unfortunaly, from the list online, it looks like the Arezzo Museum is not included! Very strange... --Sailko (talk) 13:36, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Help: no-FoP Italy

Hi Marcus. When you have a moment, could you do me a favor. I decided to occupy my time to list the no-FoP files in Italy.

Tankard/beer stein

What's with moving all those files from Category:Tankards to Category:Beer steins? Many of these are described as tankards (like the wooden ones from Mary Rose), yet you've decided to redefine them as beer steins. What's the deal here?

Peter Isotalo 17:58, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

You made some rather problematic category alterations and have neither reverted them nor replied to my post. Would you mind commenting on this?
Peter Isotalo 07:09, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry for answering so late, but I had not as much time the last Days. I will not say, that I have a problem in understanding the english terms. But you can be shure I know enough about Ceramics. If you know, where I made Misatakes, please feel free rechange ist. As far as I understand it, I made correct changes. But it is possible, that german and english terms are not ever 1:1 tranlatable. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:16, 19 February 2013 (UTC) PS: the translation for Tankard and Stein is in german the same. There are no differences.

"Beer stein" has a specific usage in English, whereas "tankard" is more general. Keep in mind that these categories are in English, not German. "Beer stein" is a specific type of ceramic tankard, though I'm not sure exactly where to draw the line. But it's unquestionable that wood or metal tankards should never be categorized as "beer steins". I urge you to correct your own mistakes in this case.

OTRS waiting list and 1-2 other issues

I have heard that OTRS can have a waiting list of up to 75 days in some cases. (I hope I was not misinformed.) If this is true, then its no wonder that people are puzzled when they send permission for a picture...and it still gets deleted perhaps by you or another Admin.

As for this image you uploaded, since you gave no description, I managed to give a description--this time--since it is a holiday. Without a description, most people don't know when this object dates to, just the name of the owner. I also named the owner in the category you gave for this tomb.

PS: Most of these ddenisen flickr images have the right category but this image is missing a certain category, I think:

Luckily all these images were taken at the king tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Centre in Seattle in 2012 as this notice states the end of the exhibit by the Pacific Science Centre of Seattle. Flickr here has 1000+ images from this exhibit but very few images were licensed freely like those from ddenisen's account. Normally these objects would be in the Cairo Museum where photos are all prohibited since mid-2005. Ddenisen gives good descriptions for his photos usually but I did not upload most of them. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:13, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: This is the only other photo from flickr that I uploaded which was not from ddenisen's flickr account...and even the photo of the mask is affected by the bright museum lights:
  • File:Funerary mask of Psusennes I (2012).jpg

The other images by this other user (geraldford) are partly out of focus...which is not a surprise since I too have difficulty sometimes taking good pictures in a dark or brightly lit museum in Canada where I live. The only image that might be worth uploading--if you wish--is this One I did not upload it because I like ddenisen's images which have clearer descriptions....but the resolution is high. Best Wishes, --Leoboudv (talk) 01:23, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Since two days I'm working on the images: names descriptions, categories. I've made hundreds of edits in this area the last two days. But I can't do everything at once. I uploaded all images at once because of offering them to the egyptologist community at de:WP. Some images already get description from them. And all the other will get description in the next days. I've uploaded them not as a joke under a temporary name. But - do you really think, such a description helps the people? This says nothing, absolutely nothing about the object. You see a model of a boat. What helps to know biographical things of the owner of the tomb at this place? I'm happy if you would like to help with categorizing. But I would be more happy for some more substantial informations.
Practically I'm not an egyptologist - I've studied classical archaeology, so I've made the pictures in Boston (and Brooklyn) because I was there and upload them - but for a bigger engagement in the egyptologian area I've not the time and energy.
And I'm only working for the german language community for the OTRS. I'm not elected for Commons. -- Marcus Cyron (talk) 02:19, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Dear Marcus Cyron,

Thank you for your reply. My reply was not a criticism--more like a comment that it helps to give an image some context to a reader who doesn't know the topic if you give a brief career of the owner the tomb as I tried to do. I, too, am not an Egyptologist though I have an interest in Egyptology from my days at University in Canada. And yes, I saw your large and impressive number of image uploads from Boston and Brooklyn. Unfortunately, there is no Egyptian art in Vancouver where I am as you can see on my userpage. As for this rare freely licensed Image, if you wish to upload it to commons from flickr, please feel free to do so. I have not uploaded it--but I let you upload it if you think the image quality is worth your while. Please have a happy Easter in Germany or Austria. I will not disturb you again. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 03:34, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

OTRS waiting list and 1-2 other issues

My comments were just comments that adding a brief description helps. (That was why I added a brief description...since I was free that day) I am not an Egyptologist and I have a busy job in real life, too. I just have some interest in Ancient Egypt but that is not my job. I mostly mark images on Commons which was how I accidentally saw your images. I don't know if I can participate in a Wikimedia Egyptological community as I am on the EEF forum.

Riesengroße Sammelkategorien

Hallo Marcus,

Du hast Bildern, die ich vor drei Tagen hochgeladen habe, in mir zwei rätselhafte Kategorien mit Unmengen von scheinbar zusammenhanglosen Bildern eingeordnet. Ruft man versehentlich einen der Links auf, dann ist der Browser minutenlang blockiert, gleichzeitig fließen riesige Datenmengen. Gibt es einen Grund für diese Sache – und wäre es vielleicht möglich, bei Wikilinks auf solche Datenmassen eine Warnung wegen der abgfeforderten Datenmengen einzubauen? --Falk2 (talk) 04:04, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, kannst du bitte mal sagen, worum genau es geht? Ich habe in den letzten Tagen Einiges bei Commons aufgeräumt (eigentlich meist eher in Subkats). Marcus Cyron (talk) 08:34, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Du hast (vermutlich) die Seiten User:Marcus Cyron/OgreBotArchaeology/2013 May 21-31 und User:Marcus Cyron/OgreBotClassics/2013 May 21-31 angelegt, oder Dein Bot ist durchgegangen und hat es ohne Dich getan. --Falk2 (talk) 09:40, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Habe ich nicht. Ich habe beim Betreiber des Ogre-Bots die Anfrage gestellt, für bestimmte Großkategorien Seiten mit den neuen Bildern anzulegen, damit diese begutachtet werden können. Das waren wohl Experimente vom Betreiber, ob das geht. Ich habe nichts getan. Marcus Cyron (talk) 10:35, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Betroffene Datei
Dasselbe oben von Falk 2 beschriebene Problem habe ich mit meiner gestern hochgeladenen Datei. Sie ist, wie ich heute sah, mit einer von Falk 2 genannten Seite ( User:Marcus Cyron/OgreBotCeramics/2013 May 21-31 ) verlinkt. Da ich den Link nicht aufrufen konnte, bzw. irgendwann entnervt abbrach, finde ich das Ganze doch etwas mühselig und dabei sinnfrei. Hast Du nicht die Möglichkeit, dem Betreiber seine "Experimente" auszutreiben? Besten Gruß, LeoDavid (talk) 11:21, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Da ich nicht wirklich weiß, was er genau macht und wo genau euer Problem liegt, wäre es villeicht am Besten ihr geht den direkten Weg zum Botbetreiber. Meinen Segen habt ihr. Marcus Cyron (talk) 00:21, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

OgreBot's page collections are a right nuisance

I am not certain what is happening with OgreBot, however, its collections are problematic.

  1. Something like File:Jarkko_Nieminen_-_Roland-Garros_2013_-_001.jpg does seem right to be be collected into three categories like archaeology, ceramics and classics, and I actually doubt that it should be collected into much at all by a bot for display at a page.
  2. By golly those pages that it builds are so bloody big!!! Trying to run a rename is slowed down by the beastly size, and looking at the category is a worse mistake as it comes close to killing my browser, at least slows it down for many minutes.

If you could look at and resolve this matter it would be great, as it is problematic for my admin work. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:42, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

The problem lies in the fact that OgreBot is including every subcategory of Category:Ceramics... which it just so happens is almost every category on Commons (it has to do with the category tree... it's complicated). I meant to disable these categories while I do research into why this is happening, but apparently I failed. I will blank these pages while I continue to do the research. Sorry about that! Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 15:45, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
It seems, the idea is good, but it does not work in "myy" categories. So we better should stop here. The more, the Cat-system is actually that bad. Marcus Cyron (talk) 19:43, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Kuriermeinung

If you don't mind, I will post the following at Commons:Checkusers/Requests/INeverCry in 22 hours:

* [[User:Marcus Cyron]] [//de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia%3AKurier&diff=119618111&oldid=119616120 wrote the following] at [[:de:Wikipedia:Kurier]] (the de-Wikipedia equivalent for the Sign Post). I think everyone here, and especially the candidate has a right to know what he wrote there, thereof, here is a rough (and possibly not always correct) translation which Marcus is welcome to improve it:
** Currently there is a Checkuser-election at Commons. It is arguable whether the writer of these lines is right with his demand keeping the number of people who have access to these sensitive right low. He is more interested or even alarmed by the statistics of the eight checkusers at Wikimedia Commons during the past year: [[User:Trijnstel/comcu|About 8.500]] check user actions were performed. Half of them during [[Commons:Checkusers/Statistics|the last half year]]. Especially two collaborators — of which one just threw in the towel (retired) — excelled with a four digits number of actions, each. And it doesn't grasp to the author [of these lines] how such a thing could happen. Are there really so many violations that have to be treated with a CU (where there is hardly a Community with “socking”) – or are the buttons carelessly used? And how can we then complain about spying by ACTA, SOPA, PIPA and PRISM, if we ourself created such a surveillance structure in our project. A comment by M.C. // 
* Note that the checkuser policy at de.wp is stricter. I just found it awkward posting something to a broad public before even waiting for a response. -- ~~~~

-- Rillke(q?) 22:02, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

You don't have to ask, I wrote it in a public space. And you don't have to tell me that the policy at de:WP is strincter, I know that. But here it's not only not strict. It's dangerous often used. Marcus Cyron (talk) 09:28, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Right... I post something on your talk and I see the comment of Rillke. :/ You clearly don't trust me of handling the tools correctly otherwise you wouldn't complain about it. As I said, 90% of the time I use them to check spambots and attack accounts. It's pure vandal fighting. Commons is just attacked by many spambots and vandals. I've never checked a regular editor. And there must be a very valid reason for me if I would ever do that. Besides, why is it important to complain about me (or my CU work) on another project (dewiki) where I'm not even an active contributor? I'm disappointed in you. You could've asked me to explain the amount of of CUs or whatever instead of making your own conclusions. Trijnsteltalk 12:29, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry

I never check normal editors. There must be a very valid reason to do so & I never came across one. It's mostly a help for vandal fighting. Trijnsteltalk 12:19, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Don't get me wrong - it's not Mistrust. But I have an other opinion depending CUs. Marcus Cyron (talk) 23:55, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
I have to correct myself. Now I can't don't trust you longer. People who like better applause than critics is one thing - but to accept Nazi comparisons to feel better, is not trustworthy as Checkuser or Administrator. Marcus Cyron (talk) 00:27, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
There was no “Nazi comparison”. If you are unable to understand what Túrelio wrote, you should not comment about it. Túrelio just mentioned that this phrase was also used them. -- Rillke(q?) 17:38, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

sorry

Hallo Marcus,
es tut mir leid, dass ich mit der Bezugnahme auf das Geibel-Schlagwort in meiner Kritik an deiner ersten Kurier-Meldung zu persönlich geworden bin und dich unnötig verletzt habe. Ich hatte mich über den direkten Bezug auf INeverCrys rfCU, den ich weiterhin für falsch halte, außerordentlich geärgert (gerade weil ich die Arbeitslast der im recent-upload-patrolling, Ausfiltern von URVs, Abarbeiten von SLAs und LAs, Auffinden und Revertieren von spambot-Edits usw. aktiven Admins bestens kenne und weiß, dass eine solche rfCU nicht aus Eigeninteresse des „Bewerbers“ herrührt, sondern weil die (für Commons-Verhältnisse) wenigen aktiven CUs händeringend nach Entlastung suchen) und deshalb zu heftig reagiert. Natürlich wollte ich dir mit dem Geibel-Satz keine Nazi-Haltung/Methoden anhängen, sondern auf die kaum zu übersehende Neigung der :de-community hinweisen, alles allein nach den auf :de üblichen Geflogenheiten/Maßstäben zu beurteilen. Ich habe die betreffenden Aussagen in der rfCU nun zurückgezogen (durchgestrichen).
Ich bitte um Verzeihung.
--Túrelio (talk) 16:46, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Túrelio, die Wahl einer vorbelasteten Redewendung war sicher nicht glücklich gewählt, jedoch fand ich das Problem auf den Punkt gebracht: Offensichtlich zerbrechen sich sämtliche Wikipediae den Kopf darüber, wie sie Commons in ihre Richtung „verbessern“ können; Häufig reden die Diskutanten und Schreiber über Gebiete in denen sie nie aktiv waren oder mit denen sie wenig Erfahrung haben. Das ist wohl auch ein Problem, das durch die zunehmenden Aufgabenteilung ausgelöst wird. -- Rillke(q?) 17:31, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Abgehakt. Wahrscheinlich habe ich auch nicht den besten Weg gewählt, auch wenn ich gar nichts von dem wollte, was mir zum Teil unterstellt wurde. Vor allem ärgert es mich, daß man meine Beiträge offenbar als persönliche Kritik ansehen konnte, was nie meine Absicht war. Ich sollte unbedingt noch deutlicher und besser formulieren, was ich sagen will. Meine Kritik in der Sache halte ich allerdings bei - und sie ist, wenn man sich meine Stimmen der letzten Jahre in dem Bereich ansieht auch in keiner Weise singulär. Ich halte den "deutschen Weg" (wenn man das so nennen will) in dieser Frage für den Sinnvolleren, Besseren, zumindest ein Mittelweg sollte gefunden werden. Aber - und hier gebe ich auch Rillke recht (wenn auch leicht anders als er es schreibt): durch die Zusammensetzung von Commons ist es hier sicher alles nicht leichter.

OgreBot categories

Hello Marcus,

I was able to trim down the ceramics category so that the bot can run it on your category. However, the archaeology and the classics categories were simply too broad, as they both have almost every ancient civilization under them, and the ancient civilizations have the modern equivalents, which themselves contain almost every category on Commons. If you wanted to narrow down the categories, we can look into adding them again. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:57, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Die Begründung lautete: Copyvio - how should be the Author and the Photographer of the Newspaper texts and the photo be dead for more than 70 years, if the Newspaper was released in 1953? Definetly a Copyvio.} -- Rillke(q?) 11:33, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
Das war eine Botbenachrichtigung, mit der habe ich nichts zu tun. Wie auch immer, sowohl Text als auch Bild der abgebildeten Zeitung stehen so nicht anders nachgewiesen unter Urheberrecht. Erst recht, wenn man eine PD-Lizenz angibt, die behauptet der Urheber sei schon 70 Jahre tot - was bei einer Zeitung aus dem Jahr 1953 bitte wie genau möglich sein soll?

File:Attic Geometric Lidded Pyxis LACMA M.77.48.5a-b.jpg

I really did not regard my edits to that file as radical or extreme cropping, since there remained a margin of at least 50 pixels on all four sides. Not sure what the advantages of margins much greater than 50 pixels is.... AnonMoos (talk) 03:54, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Why you can't give an Object some room? You press an object into much more shorter borders than nessesary. Marcus Cyron (talk) 07:09, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
I really don't know what the purpose of "room" too much greater than 50 pixels is in most cases, and the example of "File:Miyasaka Hakuryu II - Tigress with Two Cubs - Walters 71909.jpg" at Commons:Overwriting existing files#Substantial crop or un-crop more or less supports my position...

Wiederherstellung Wappen Schlins

Hallo Marcus,

ich schreibe dich an, weil du einer der Commons-Admins bist, die Deutsch sprechen und es mir sicherlich leichter fällt, den gegenständlichen Fall auf Deutsch zu schildern: Gestern Nacht wurde die Datei File:Wappen_at_schlins.png wegen eines angeblich fehlenden Lizenzbausteins gelöscht. Nachträglich kann ich nicht mehr prüfen, ob der Datei tatsächlich die korrekte Einbindung des Lizenzbausteins gefehlt hat, jedoch kann ich es mir kaum vorstellen, weil das Wappen aus einer Serie von Uploads österreichischer Gemeindewappen aus dem Jahr 2006 stammt (siehe z.B. die Lizenzbausteine bei File:Wappen_at_sulz.png, die selben Lizenzbausteine sollten eigentlich auch bei dieser Datei eingebunden gewesen sein). Ich würde dich bitten, die Datei wiederherzustellen und ggf. die Lizenzbausteine entsprechend dem oben angeführten Beispiel einzubinden, sollten diese noch nicht eingebunden sein. Die Datei wird an mehreren Stellen nicht nur in der de.Wikipedia gebraucht.

Besten Dank und Grüße aus Wien, Plani (talk) 06:36, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Gemacht. Es fehlte wirklich der Lizenzbaustein. Marcus Cyron (talk) 08:07, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Dankeschön. Wundert mich, dass von allen Wappen nur bei einem der Lizenzbaustein gefehlt hat, aber naja. Jetzt muss ich nur alle Wikipedia-Seiten wiederfinden, auf denen die Datei benutzt wurde... Lg, Plani (talk) 08:55, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Copyright

What is a copyright violation. How do you know what is and whats not.Johnericlee (talk) 13:02, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

I know it - but it seems you don't. You uploaded copyrighted material (so what I nominated for deletion an image of marvel figures used by Disney!) as your own (!!!) work. This is a copyright violation, because you used copyrighted material and it is a betrayal, because you say you've done something, you don't have. And if we see you diong this again, we have to block you here on Commons. Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:09, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Kategorieänderung: Wikimedian meetups in Germany

Ein deutscher Wikipedianer und ein österreichischer Wikipedianer hatten sich in Wien getroffen. [2], [3], [4] Ich kenne den Hintergrund für die Kategorieänderung nicht, aber Wien-Wieden liegt in Österreich und Category:Wikimedian meetups in Austria existiert nicht. --Fg68at de:Disk 16:10, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Ich weiß. Ich habe derzeit nur eine Umkategorisierung vorgenommen, das soll später Detaillierter werden. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:34, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Carl Wilhelm Ludwig Müller.jpg

Hi Marcus, I did ask for deletion this file, cause is a duplicate with bad name. It already exist with good name (Carl Wilhelm Friedrich Ludwig). Anyway, I do not now any picture of Karl Müller. The raison of this misunderstand is probably that. Best regards. Piero (talk) 06:52, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

What we're talking about? Sorry, I can't remeber. Btw - your link shows 4 images, but 3 different persons. The last one for example is Karl Otfried Müller. Marcus Cyron (talk) 12:29, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
No problem, It's done. It was about this file, created by yourself, but with wrong name. See you Piero (talk) 21:22, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Ah, OK, thanks for fixing it. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:26, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Multiple deletion of Galaxy images, G Pad, and Optimus Pad

Hi Marcus Cyron, I know your just doing your job to clean up wikimedia but may I ask what is wrong with my upload regarding Galaxy Note and Tab devices, G Pad, and Optimus Pad device? I have followed all the guidelines in uploading flickr images on commons. User:TheMostAmazingTechnik is sabotaging my images description and licensing. Moderators like User:Fastily and Flickrbot found my images to be licensed properly and Fastily even undeleted all of them due to being properly tagged and licensed. If ORTS is the reason, I mailed them before and accepted it but for it to be clear I mailed them again the consent I got from the original uploaders respectively. Thanks! Jeromesandilanico (talk) 16:19, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi. The problem is, that not all images who has free licence tags at flickr are really free (by far not). And here it's hard to belive, that the Uploader at flickr could give them free. In my eyes it wasn't your fault - but until we get a OTRS ticket that the images really "clean", it's better to delete them. If we get a positive answer, I will restore them as fast as it is possible. But we should getting the safe way here. Marcus Cyron (talk) 16:26, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
But another administrator via User:Fastily accepted it as it was licensed in flickr under Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic. Also please look at the angle that User:TheMostAmazingTechnik did these by personal attacks. Jeromesandilanico (talk) 16:34, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
It seems he not really accepted it, because the "Speedy Deletion" were still in the files. And depending flickr I already said, what I think is to say. Marcus Cyron (talk) 16:56, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Actually he accepted it, its only User:TheMostAmazingTechnik who again putted it on the files, I even contested it on the talk pages as per instruction. And by the way isnt it that I could put an "OTRS pending" tag for the mean time while we both wait for the OTRS ticket?Jeromesandilanico (talk) 17:09, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

File:K2 board game.jpg

Marcus, was ist das Problem bei einem Foto, dass ich alleine gemacht habe? Dürfen da keine Inhalte anderer Autoren drauf sein oder wie? Ugryz (talk) 17:34, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Du hast vielleicht das Foto gemacht. Aber sicher nicht das Bild gemalt, oder? Und das unterliegt natürlich dem Urheberrecht des Künstlers. Man darf nicht einfach alles nehmen und weiterverwenden, das gibt das Uhrheberrecht nicht her. Dazu bräuchte es eine Erlaubnis des Malers des Bildes. Marcus Cyron (talk) 17:38, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Darf man dann auch kein Foto hochladen, dass Leute beim Spielen des Spiels (wird auch das Spielbrett zu sehen sein, dass jemand gemalt hat) zeigt? Ugryz (talk) 17:45, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Das kommt drauf an. Wenn das Cover nur Beiwerk ist geht das, wenn sich letztlich doch darauf konzentriert würde nicht. Ist immer etwas eine Gefühlssache. Marcus Cyron (talk) 18:16, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Jorge Royan's pictures

Hello.

I see you tagged one of Jorge Royan's pictures as copyvio. Jorge's account is authentic and he holds the copyright of every single image he has uploaded. You will also be able to check that all the images he uploads have full EXIF info and most of them in full resolution. If you find his pictures published elsewhere either they were copied from Commons or from his personal web site.

Best, Barcex (talk) 17:35, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

You're right, sorry. This really was a mistake. Marcus Cyron (talk) 17:42, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Porcelaine

Hi Marcus! I always put as many infos as I can in the filenames (you can easily translate it to any language with online tools). But unfortunately the captaions of the museums are sometimes very poor. It's not because I am dumb or lazy. In this is a case all it says is: "Vienna 1785-1786"... I know it is sad. I guessed it is Apollo because it has the Lira and the fleeces at his feet. Who made it? I don't know. Do not complain to me but to the museum! At least I just uploaded many new pictures of Manifactures which had almost any before, like Fulda, Würtzburg, Paris, Worcester and many more... if we had more images to compare it could be easier to guess the missing infos. --Sailko (talk) 11:17, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the Infos (I don't think you're dumb ;)) - it's sad, when museums give not enough informations. Marcus Cyron (talk) 11:23, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Pictures

Never claimed as any of these photo as my own work. These photos are there only for educational proposes and are taken by Veria F.C. website who allows the useage from the public. As long as the people being in photo ain't disturbed by this action either, and as far as they are used by multiple websites all over the Greek sport portal, I can't see where's the problem Regards.

Hi - where the problem is? You can't take pictures other people take - this is simply stealing. The Website of Veria claims the copyright for what's on the site. And Wikipedia is not a "multiple website". We honour the Copyrights of other persons. Simply: you can not go somewhere and take the images from there. Only if this isn allowed. And for Wikimedia Commons this is only possible with a free license. Marcus Cyron (talk) 11:41, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

User_talk:Fæ#Aircrafts

Heya Marcus, this is a project that me and Fae are working on, which will involve probably 150,000+ images. Luckily many of the images are automatically categorised by registration, but there are a lot of other categories to be added and this can only be done manually, and I and many other editors are diligently working on this.

I would be happy if this would be so - but I can't find it. Could you please give an Information about that in the description of the picture? Then I think everything will work fine. Marcus Cyron (talk) 11:51, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Category:Images from Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 in Turkey

Nice images, but I'm afraid that Turkey isn't part of Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 so this category will probably deleted soon. Multichill (talk) 20:13, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Why? Isn't the important thing to get the images? In my opinion only this is of importance. It's not important who does this. And from where. So why it is imortant who gives the start für Turkey? Marcus Cyron (talk) 20:31, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Hallo Marcus, du hast eine Meta-Kategorie für einen Wettbewerb (WLM Turkey) eingerichtet, der nicht stattfindet. In der Türkei hat sich halt schlicht keiner gefunden diesen Wettbewerb durchzuführen. (s. Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments_2013). Pack sie doch nach Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Turkey. (vorausgesetzt es gibt einen solchen Status in der Türkei).
Danke für deinen Bildbeitrag zu Wikimedia Commons. --PigeonIP (talk) 18:27, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
Hört doch bitte mit dem Wettbewerbsquatsch auf. Es geht darum innerhalb dieses Monats so viele Bilder von Monumenten auf der Welt zu sammeln, wie es eben geht.

Ciao, Marcus Cyron, grazie per aver partecipato a Wiki Loves Monuments! Ti ricordo che mancano poche ore alla mezzanotte, termine per l'invio delle immagini, e che puoi sí puntare tutto sulla tua foto migliore, ma non ci sono limiti numerici né di dimensione: hai ancora tempo per caricare moltissime foto, tutte quelle che riesci.

Can't remember what was more than a week ago. But you're right, this image is not a speedy deletion candidate, it's an imgage where is to talk about a possible deletion. I always open more than one Images to deletion and it's possible, I deletet here on false, one I don't wanted to delete instead of a clear Copyvio. I've restored the image.

Hello. When you follow your link you can see, that the image is NOT under a PD-license. It's a CC-license. But not uder a CC-by-sa or a CC-0-license, as Commons it accept, no, it's a CC-nc-License. NC for Noncomercial. Sadly we can not accept such licenses. And PD-1923... - sorry, but I don't belive, that the image is so old. But also if I would belive it, without a date of creation, publishing or Vita-dates of the painter - how I could? Copyright is a really importand thing, we must du everything here as correct as we can. Not only because Mistakes could be expensive, also because we would do a lot of copyright violations up to possible stealing other peoples work. Marcus Cyron (talk) 22:30, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Sorry - but it don't work this way. Only because he gave this picture to you (and we must trust you, because there's no proof!) it doesn't mean, that he can give it away. Who was the photographer? Did he say yes to a free use? If you have permissions, you should send them to the support team. Copyright issues are much too important than to take the things easy. We have to use the project rules. We must do that! Marcus Cyron (talk) 16:37, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Based on the specific usage of the photo, as part of an existing Wikipedia article about a public figure, your volunteer efforts in this case are not aligned with the mission of the Wikipedia community. You need to consider what you are doing in the correct context. In the United States, a personal photo taken of oneself can be used in any way by the subject, without seeking any permission from the photographer. If this image is not correct, and not approved by the subject, don't you think the subject would immediately address and flag it him/herself? Monitoring and flagging public figure photos used on personal sites isn't a good use of your valuable time. In any case, I have gone back to the subject and will find out who took the photo, if it was indeed a professional, or just an acquaintance, and will get some sort of release note from that person. And in the future, rather than immediately marking every image for deletion, think about the context. If you still have valid concerns, please try a more measured approach. You can outline your concerns about the copyright, and give the poster a chance to address those concerns in a civil fashion.

Timtempleton (talk) 20:48, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

In all Wikimedia projects the authors and photographers have to follow the rules! And the Copyright is one of the main pillars of the project. Even you have to accept it and to follow the rules. Goal for Wikimedia is to create FREE projects. Free means FREE for every usage by following the Rules, Rules as the Licenses. We don't need to discuss this more here. You are simply wrong.

Hey,

User:Montehurd is a WMF member of staff who mis-directed the Commons app he was developing to Commons (rather than a test site) during testing. I'm sorry that this wasn't flagged up yesterday.

Unsinn. Wie kann ein Abzeichen "öffentlich" sein? Die Feuerwehr ist hier ein privatrechtlicher Verein, die Medaille durch nichts öffentlich legitimiert.

Thera and Ancient Thera

Hi. It is very probable that the jug comes from the island of Thera (aka Santorini), not from the ancient city of Thera, wich was founded around -900, centuries after. The description here (N°1 p 44) even states it comes reportedly from Thera : it means that it was not found during regular excavations and that it is thought to come from Santorini/Thera but the precise location is not known.--Phso2 (talk) 13:56, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

file Aco Šopov Anthologie.jpg

Hi Marcus Cyron, I've just sent a request fos undelition of the file Aco Šopov Anthologie.jpg which is my own work. It is the cover of my father's book "Anthologie personnelle" published in 1994 by UNESCO in the collection "Collection UNESCO d'oeuvres représentatives" and co-edited by Actes Sud. I took the picture of the cover that I put on Wiki Commons.

Here is the detail of the rights printed in the book: (c) Jasmina Šopova et Vladimir Šopov /myself and my late brother/ (c) Ante Popovski, 1994, pour l'introduction (c) Actes Sud, 1994, pour la postface (c) UNESCO, 1994, pour la traduction française ISBN Actes Sud 2-7427-0203-2 ISBN Unesco 92-3-202964-2. Illustration de couverture: Portrait d'Aco Šopov par Dimitar Kondovski Collection particulière /my own collection/ (Tous droits réservés)

According to the publishers, the cover of the book can be freely reproduced. The book is out of print. Please let me know if you need more information in order to allow the undeletion of the file file Aco Šopov Anthologie.jpg Thanking you in advance, Jasmina Šopova --Јасмина Шопова (talk) 13:05, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Aco Šopov Anthologie.jpg

I'm curious why you restored this file while there is an open UnDR?

File:Supernova Remnant SN 1006.jpg

Hi Marcus, what is the story behind this deletion? Regards, --SJ+ 17:54, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi. The Cause that was given at the speedy deletion request was: http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/image_use.html states only non commercial, John P. Hughes is not a member of NASA. Free are the Images as long the NASA publish their own material. But here it isn't the NASA and the original copyright holder says: NC. Marcus Cyron (talk) 18:11, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. (I wish deletion didn't hide the revisions; this is a useful record to preserve.)
The specifics of that request are wrong: John P. Hughes (one of the scientists who was a PI on the NASA telescope work) does not have copyright on the image. Also, the NC license in the Chandra website (which you link to) is a catch-all that covers any image found on the site that is not otherwise licensed; the all-NASA images there are still PD. (I checked with a staffmember who runs the site)
The actual copyright status of this image is tricky, since it is a composite of 3 wavelengths from 3-4 institutions; it is likely that not all of the non-NASA institutions (NRAO, NOAO, DSS and possibly Middlebury College) have released copyright - worth asking them. But it seems to me that a regular deletion discussion may be worthwhile, if only to clear up the discussion at Category_talk:Chandra_images. --SJ+ 11:52, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
OK, I trust you ;) - I've restored the image. Marcus Cyron (talk) 12:06, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Evelyn Matthei

I don't actually understand your rationale for nominating Matthei's pictures, but I will explain it all on your 15 (!) nominations. Evelyn Matthei's website is licensed under the license CC-BY-3.0-CL (it clearly shows this. Secondly: the pictures can all be found at a relative location, which I will point in every single nomination. I recommend you withdraw all your nominations. küñall (nütramyen) 13:17, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Her Website looks like a point were simply Photos were put under a free license. It's not clear, that the photographers really give the images free. And - all the images were uploades as work by Evelyn Matthei - that's simply a lie. She's to see on the images, some of them look very official. She isn't the photographer. So it's hard to trust every information there. And some of the Images are worked over - but you will not tell me by Evelyn Matthei. Too much problems, too much unbeleavable things here. Marcus Cyron (talk) 16:16, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
She might not be the author of the photographs, granted. But it's pretty clear the content is released (most likely by her campaign team, otherwise the Independent Democrat Union party) under the terms of the CC-BY-3.0-CL. We might never know who actually took the photos, but the copyright holder clearly is the political coalition behind the website (Alianza). As I said, it's pretty clear she is not the author, but might be the copyright holder, and so the website www.evelynmatthei.cl is properly attributed. küñall (nütramyen) 17:25, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
For me this is not clear. Because of this there's now a discussion. We will see, what other people think. Marcus Cyron (talk) 18:21, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
Why? The images and content are clearly CC-BY... küñall (nütramyen) 21:32, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
We end the discussion here. It seems you don't want to understand, where the problems are. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:33, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm not looking for trouble, but... your rationale is vague. I'll let the nominations continue its route if you don't want more discussion. Regards. küñall (nütramyen) 21:36, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
I don't beive, that Matthei relly have the right to give the images free under a free license. Point. You see it different. This is OK. Now other people should decide, if you or me is correct. When I'm not right - fine! I'm happy about every image more we can use. But Copyvios could cause big problems, so we must look at every image. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:40, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Lygaeus equestris/simulans

Concerning this edit commented as "discussion with open end". Where is the discussion? I don't see it. It is simply incorrect to name (or categorize) all these photos as Lygaeus equestris:

  • a reliable ID is not possible from these images
  • usually no location is given and if it were given in many regions both species occur sympatric and for other regions presence of both species is simply not investigated with enough depth since simulans was described, so location is not a viable help for ID anyway.

Schiphol

Hello, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is situated in Schiphol, a district of Haarlemmermeer. What about splitting Category:Schiphol in a Category:Schiphol (neigbourhood) and a Category:Schiphol (airport), this latter redirecting towards Category:Amsterdam Airport Schiphol ? --Havang(nl) (talk) 09:28, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Yes - do it! :) You are the expert, so it seems :) Marcus Cyron (talk) 11:59, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
I am not that expert. Amsterdam airport Schiphol itself is in Schiphol Centrum; there is also Schiphol-Rijk (and Business Park Schiphol-Rijk), Schiphol-Zuid-Oost, Schiphol-Oost. It is said that: <<Schiphol-Zuid-Oost, Schiphol-Oost and the industrial park of Schiphol-Rijk is part of the main distribution area for the Schiphol Airport>>, so they are directly related to the airport anyhow. I made a gallery, somewhat arbitrary.

What do you think about these? By the way, Category:Amsterdam Airport Schiphol could be subcategory of Category:Schiphol (neighborhood). Or is all this too complicated to be practical? --Havang(nl) (talk) 16:22, 19 November 2013 (UTC) --Havang(nl) (talk) 16:22, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Google Art Project works

Hi, you were correct in marking for deletion works such as File:Unknown Greek - Female Head Oinochoe - Google Art Project.jpg. These were misidentified as paintings due to the core:type metadata (this issue is now fixed). However, you should not delete works such as File:Unknown Scottish - Portrait of a Brother and Sister - Google Art Project.jpg which depict 2D paintings surrounded by a 3D frame. These should be marked with {{Non-free frame}} so that they can be edited to remove the frame.

Vielen Danke für Deine Hilfe bei meinen umfangreichen Umbenennungen. Leider wurde in der Vergangenheit beim Thema Verkehreszeichen etwas geschludert - auch von mir. Es zeigt sich, daß man sehr sauber trennen muß, da in jeder Zeitstellung ganz besondere typographische und farbliche Eigenarten zu beachten sind. Einiges mag auf uns ungewöhnlich wirken. Aber jeder ist halt von seiner Zeit geprägt. Und gerade vor 1971 läßt sich in Westdeutschland noch einiges an variablen Spielarten finden. Trotz Normierungswahn hatte man vor dieser Zeit immer noch einige „kreative“ Spielräume. Mediatus (talk) 17:10, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Ich bin mal wieder total überrascht, überrascht aus der Rubrik "was es nicht alles gibt", obwohl es eigentlich klar ist, daß sich das immer mal wieder geändert haben muß. In Frankreich findet man bis hute zum Teil noch Uraltschilder. Marcus Cyron (talk) 01:37, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

File:PlanPompeji4.jpg

Hi Marcus, I was looking at the above file and was wondering what the source is. Nev1 (talk) 19:59, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Hab Dank fürs Katzen der Grenzsteine in Ketterschwang - irgendwie bin ich nach einem Jahr Vicuna-Uploader zu doof für den Commons-Uploader, ich hatt die Cat angegeben, die wurde dann aber von der Cat Ketterschwang überschrieben. Ich weiss nicht, wie Du überhaupt auf das Bild kommst - ich kann mir nur vorstellen, dass du entweder meine oder alle Uploads regelmässig beobachtest - in diesem Fall mein Kompliment, dass dich da nicht gleich der Irrsinn einholt. --Ordercrazy (talk) 12:26, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Überhaupt ein Problem. Ich bin selbst so unglaublich schlampig, daß ich ruhig mal anderen Leuten helfen kann, wenn sie was vergessen haben. Und ja, manchmal - so wie in dem Fall - beobachte ich die neuen Uploads und das Bild ist mir sofort aufgefallen. Hob sich erfreulich in Qualität und Motiv vom Rest ab :). Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:09, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Die Steine sind schon einige Zeit das letzte Bild, das in der Liste der Baudenkmäler in Germaringen noch fehlte. Ich hatte die schon mal gesucht, aber nicht gefunden. Losgezogen bin ich, weil jemand die Steine als Basis eines neuen Geocaches nahm und das BLfD im Zuge der Nachqualifizierung irgendwann in den letzten Monaten die Koordinaten der Dinger in den Bayernviewer hinzugefügt hat, sonst wär ich bei dem Wetter nicht rausgegangen. Ich mag das Bild selber - obwohl es im matschigen Schneeregen mehr so im Vorbeigehen und aus der Hüfte raus mit dem Handy aufgenommen ist und ob des problematischen Lichts nur als Provisorium gedacht war. Aktionen wie die deine sind es, die mich dran glauben lassen, dass wir das hier alles nicht ganz umsonst machen. BTW: Der zugehörige Grenzvertrag zwischen Pfalzbayern und Hochstift Augsburg von 1785 hätte einen WP-Artikel verdient - er findet im weiten Umkreis um Kaufbeuren und Landsberg Niederschalag in einer großen Menge von Grenzsteinen (und einer Berg-Kapelle, die 20 Jahre im Rohbau stand und dann abgerissen wurde), von denen viele im Denkmalverzeichnis sind. --Ordercrazy (talk) 14:41, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Ich warte auf den Artikel! :) - und ich kenne diese Jagd nach "dem letzten Stück". Habe drei Listen wo mir noch ein Bild fehlt und habe in diesem Jahr 10 komplettiert. Wenngleich in meist nicht so schöner Qualität. Marcus Cyron (talk) 15:35, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Clean up required

I think that I will leave File:Flag_of_Iraq_(1963-1991);_Flag_of_Syria_(1963-1972).svg.svg cleanup to you. It is my opinion that the rename of flags like this one is not a good idea. They are a PITA due to how the templates are used at the WPs plus while they look the same I think that separate naming is a better way to manage these issues, especially with like flags that have different derivation.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:26, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for redirecting

Thanks for moving File:Le opere di Galileo Galilei XV.djvu to itas new name. At beginning I've been confused from the existence of a redirect: I didn't know that it was possible! Is it something new? Or did I simply ignore this possibility? --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 13:10, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

I fixed all references to File:Le opere di Galileo Galilei XV.djvu, pointing them into File:Opere complete di Galileo Galilei XV.djvu; can you delete the redirect page? It could be confusing into itsource. Thanks!--Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 19:00, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
Can't be a new evention, as far as I remeber, redirects were earlier than moving. And the redirects always comes automatic, when you move an image that's used. Deletion is ofcourse possible. Marcus Cyron (talk) 22:20, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Special:DeletedContributions/Black Sonic Prophets

Hallo Marcus. IMO waren deine Löschungen überhastet. Der Benutzer scheint allenfalls die Berechtigung zu haben. Die Bilder hätten besser mit no permission getaggt werden sollen. --Leyo 15:11, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Möglich ist vieles, geht aber in keiner Weise aus den Angaben hervor. Bei Urheberrechtsfragen sollten wir kein Risiko eingehen. Wenn er zeigt, daß er die Bilder nutzen darf, kann man sie sicher gerne wiederherstellen. Würde mich aber interessieren, wo du das zu erkennen meinst (und das meine ich ernst, nicht daß das falsch ankommt, ich freue mich immer, wenn ich noch dazulernen kann, ich merke immer wieder, daß ich doch noch recht limitiert bin). Marcus Cyron (talk) 16:39, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Bei Fotos, die schon mehrere Monate auf Commons sind und dann getaggt werden, kommt es auf einige Stunden (im getaggten Zustand) auch nicht mehr an. Der Uploader war ja gerade aktiv und es ist einfacher, sich über sichtbare Bilder zu unterhalten.
Betreffend deiner Frage: Ich habe den vom Benutzer hauptsächlich bearbeitete Artikel auf meiner Watchlist und auch schon mal mit ihm diskutiert. Da und heute auf seiner de-WP-Disk. hat er ein paar Angaben gemacht. --Leyo 17:44, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Ich muß gestehen, ich habe nicht danach geschaut, wie lange sie schon da sind. Marcus Cyron (talk) 17:48, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

File:Trebitzsches Haus Jena 2009.jpg

Ich bin mit der Umbenennung nicht ganz glücklich. Der Fotograf hatte auf Flickr eine ganze Reihe von Bildern aus Jena gepostet, die ich auf Commons übertragen habe. Ich hatte auch überlegt, aussagekräftigere Namen zu wählen, aber dann die Originalnamen beibehalten, um zumindest den Seriencharakter der Bilder (und damit letztlich die Wiederauffindbarkeit) zu gewährleisten. Aber was solls .... --slg (talk) 17:35, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Die Weiterleitung müßte noch da sein. Aber bei der Masse an Bildern, die wir mittlerweile haben, müssen wir wirklich mehr auf die Namen achten. Marcus Cyron (talk) 17:47, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Es ging mir vor allem um die Auffindbarkeit in einer Kategorie wie 2009 in Jena. Für größere Serien erscheint mir eine Sortierung nach Datum, Ort und fortlaufender Nummer durchaus ausreichend (was z.T. im Übrigen auch von sehr erfahrenen Wikifotografen nicht anders gehandhabt wird, siehe z.B. die ersten ca. 100 Bilder dieser Kategorie ;)); wichtiger als Dateinamen finde ich halbwegs aussagekräftige Bildbeschreibungen und Kategorisierungen. Ich habe übrigens einen großen Anteil an Bildern aus Gera und Jena selber kategorisiert, so leicht entwischt mir da keines, nur manchmal ist es halt ein mühsames Hinterherarbeiten ;) --slg (talk) 18:15, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Vielleicht hast du eine Idee, wie man Datum uns bessere Erklärung verbinden kann? Ich verschiebe dir alle, was sein muß ;). Und ich muß unbedingt mal nach Jena... Marcus Cyron (talk) 19:54, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Ich will ja eben damit ausdrücken, dass es von mir aus keine Verschiebungen braucht ;) .... aber wenn, dann würde ich die Erklärung im Dateinamen ganz nach hinten setzen, damit die alphabetische Sortierung unbeeinträchtigt bleibt. Wenn also (erfundenes Beispiel) ein Bild als 2013-12-02 Jena 0001.jpg hochgeladen wird, dann könnte man es z.B. in 2013-12-02 Jena 0001 – Weihnachtsmarkt.jpg umbenennen. --slg (talk) 21:17, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Photos that are almost identical of the Arn Limited Edition movie sword

As you know, this sword has files with photos that are either identical or almost identical views of this sword. If I knew how to nominate the duplicates for deletion, I would do so. I probably would get some very negative comments, but we are trying to make the Wikimedia system better, not waste space with almost identical images. If you would tell me how to nominate these images, I would do so. I work mostly in English Wikipedia and am very familiar with setting up deletion nominations there. Lately, however, I have spent some time in Commons. Thanks again for your file moves based on my requests. Wpollard (talk) 13:18, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Tell the file names here to me - the ones you want to delete and the ones you want not to delete. Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:27, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
As I said, some photos are almost duplicates of others that provide no additional information.
The files to keep are:
  • File:The Arn Limited Edition Offical Movie Sword (6103678070).jpg
  • File:The Arn Limited Edition Offical Movie Sword (6103119479).jpg
  • File:The Arn Limited Edition Offical Movie Sword (6103123087).jpg
  • File:The Arn Limited Edition Offical Movie Sword (6103657404).jpg
The files that I think are duplicates and can be deleted are:
  • File:The Arn Limited Edtion Offical Movie Sword (6103678162).jpg
  • File:The Arn Limited Edtion Offical Movie Sword (6103113411).jpg
  • File:The Arn Limited Edtion Offical Movie Sword (6103116407).jpg
  • File:The Arn Limited Edtion Offical Movie Sword (6103126147).jpg
If these are nominated for deletion, I will write I think these are duplicates that are not needed. Thank you for your help and time. Wpollard (talk) 02:07, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Photo wrongly deleted

File:Alopekis dogs working with sheep.jpg The file was wrongly deleted. The photo is included in the article of the Greek wiki that I authored https://el.wikipedia.org/wiki/%CE%91%CF%81%CF%87%CE%B5%CE%AF%CE%BF:%CE%A0%CE%BF%CE%B9%CE%BC%CE%B5%CE%BD%CE%B9%CE%BA%CE%AD%CF%82_%CE%91%CE%BB%CF%89%CF%80%CE%B5%CE%BA%CE%AF%CE%B4%CE%B5%CF%82_1960.jpg and carries a FREE licence. (see the licence in Greek wiki under the photo) The file was wrongly deleted. I am the author of both articles and legal user of the photo I wish the photo re-instated. I filed an undelete request. Thank you Fainomenon (talk) 19:16, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, but why exactly you think you are allowed to use an image from 1960 with unknown photographer? Marcus Cyron (talk) 19:52, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Because the file belongs to the archive of Amaltheia Society for the Preservation of Hellenic Native Breeds, of which I am a member, and I was given specific permission (copyright) by the Society to use it in the creation of articles about the breed in the English and other wikis and other media.
And why these information was not to find in the article? And why there's not an permission send to the Support team? How we should know, that this is correct what you say? There were so much people who told us a lot. We need at least some written words to the support team, so we can use an OTRS number. We talking about copyrights - they are often very problematic (and at the end this could become expensive), we must take this serious. Marcus Cyron (talk) 14:35, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
I am sorry. I am a new user and not very familiar with all the instructions yet.I did not see how I could have attached all this info to the file in the first place. I thought I selected the correct options for the file but that's obviously not the case. I am learning the wikimedia commons instructions as I go along, I find them very complicated and I am not an experienced user yet; I will e-mail OTRS with all the relevant information; I was astonished by the fact the file was deleted here despite the fact it is published in the Greek wiki with a free licence, and the information I supplied here about the source. Amaltheia Society's site is down at present otherwise I would have included it in the information. I am waiting for an e-mail message from the HQ of the Society before I proceed to write to the OTRS. I thought I had seven days' time to do that.Fainomenon (talk) 19:31, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Good Idea. I will help you as good as I can. I'm always happy, when we can solve a problem. Marcus Cyron (talk) 22:22, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

No it is a separate file; and I have no file mover right. So I restored the old file name at Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list to avoid affecting the nomination. It may a bit complicated for you to understand. On the other side, give the the file mover right, I can do it without disturbing you. :) JKadavoor Jee 05:23, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

ICDD at Gate to the Unknown 2012 photo deletion

I understand that the image is copyrighted. However, Hull specifically stated to me that he doesn't care that I use the picture for Wikipedia. If I mislabeled something when I uploaded the image, I apologize. Is there any way to correct the license on the upload form after the uploading? Since Vaguedge's website's contact page is broken (403 Forbidden), the only way I know to contact Hull is via Twitter, also linked on his website. Thank you for your understanding. Ruukasu2005 (talk) 20:47, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi. The problem is, that our images need a free license. That means, they have to be free for every use - not only for Wikipedia. If Hull says yes, that would be fine. Then would be the best way, he writes a mail to the OTRS. Then we can write it at the image site. Marcus Cyron (talk) 21:46, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough. Anyway, Hull's Twitter page is halcaitk. I also notified him about his site's broken mail form, so things should be easier to contact him whenever it's fixed. Thanks. Ruukasu2005 (talk) 11:30, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
Just an update: I received a reply from Hull. He said that he can't permit formally because he is not the photographer of the photo, so this may take some time. Ruukasu2005 (talk) 19:31, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Category talk:People by occupation by alphabet - Indeed "move mostly opposed"?

I'm sorry, but you're wrong in this funny "conclusion" and possibly have difficulty in either counting or reading through the discussion. There's one (1) single user opposing, and four (4) others fervantly supporting the elimination of that category, of whom three (3) advocate a merger with "People by occupation". The opposing user has "opposed" in more than one comment throughout the thread, therefore you may by perplexed. Please ask somebody else to review your decision (which is fantastically invalid given the overwhelming majority down there) if you don't have time to review it yourself. Thank you.
