Watermarking[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your contributions, but watermarked images are strongly discouraged. All images uploaded need to be under a free license, which allows for modification, rendering the goal of watermarking pointless. If you do not want to release your images under such a license, please don't upload them here. Thanks for understanding. Jkelly 23:38, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

The image with the watermarking was taken by my friend, which allowed to release it under GFDL. The orginal picture he gave included the watermarking and I just didn't removed it. MathKnight 16:49, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Hello. We would like to publish this image of "The charred remains of an Israeli bus, attacked by Palestinian terrorists in 1978 Coastal Road Massacre" in a Sociology textbook. Would you please contact me at jillenge@yahoo.com for details? I would like to obtain your permission to publish this photo. Thank you. -Jill

Cathedral of Toledo's Commons entry[edit]

you put a language link in this article's common's entry. but you linked the actual article. Articles have language links to other articles (only). Categories have language links to other categories (only). Projects have language links to other projects (only). and Commons have language links to other commons (only). articles dont link to projects, nor categories to commons. what you did is link a common to an article. the "Cathedral of Toledo" article itself already has a language link to hebrew. in fact, the article has language links to about 6 other languages, and none of these show up on Commons' entry. you should remove that language link, or i'll do it later on, soon as i figure out how Common's works. i'm the user Ivansevil in regular Wikipedia if you want to reply, or i'll just come back to see what you think. 65.16.160.82 17:45, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't see a problem linking category on Commons to an article in Wikipedia (naturally, I would link to the Hebrew one since I am an Israeli). In WikiCommons there is a mixture between "articles" and categories as they serve the same purposes and both require links to articles in the Wikipedias.

כינוי בתבניות התמונות[edit]

הי מת', מה שלומך בוויקישיתוף? במקרה שמתי לב לזה ולא יכולתי שלא להעיר. הביטוי "יהודי ישראלי גותי" וההקשר הסתמי שבו הוא מופיע בשם היוצר של תבניות התמונות לא מחמיא לא לעם ישראל, לא עם היהודי ולא לעם הגותי. בוויקיפדיה העברית למדנו להכיר אותך כחובב גותיקה מושבע הידוע כ"אביר הגותי" אבל אני חושב שגוי כלשהו שייתקל בכיתוב הזה לא ממש יידע מה לחשוב לעצמו. בברכה, ידידך מוויקיפדיה העברית, Sambach 21:50, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

מחיקת תמונה[edit]

מת'נייט שלום, מחקתי את התמונה שלך של הר אביטל בשלג בפברואר האחרון (2008) כי בתמונה זו מצוי מתקן צהל"י וכידוע לך, פרסום מתקנים צה"ליים באינטרנט מהווה סיכון בטחוני. מחקתי את התמונה הזו מעוד סיבה, כי ההר שמצוי בתמונה הוא הר אביטל ולא הר בנטל . שלך, און. 18:04, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

I almost sure this is Bental mountain and the outpost taken is an "an-open-for-tourist" outpost of mount Bental. Anyway, the picture still exists on the server (Image:SnowGolan (6).JPG) so I replaced it with an image in which the outpost is deleted.

the rest of the story[edit]

I wrote at english wikipedia a few months back that I was having a difficult time (possibly due to age and to cultural images) imagining a gothic jew. To be honest, within a few hours of authoring that (which if I remember correctly was on one of the first truly warm days here this season) I actually had an idea of what this might look like -- an image pulled from the cultural soup which the future has become. The Satanic priest in my favorite episode of Metalocalypse, Dethreligon where Murderface spends the eleven non-musical minutes of that particular animated episode "trying on" different religions. This analysis of modern practice of religion is right up there with the Lucy Daughter of the Devil episode (also eleven well spent minutes) in which Jesus and the Devil compare Burning Man with the temptations that the devil has access to.

If you get a chance to see these episodes; both of these episodes stand out from their different seasons to me as being among the best of the lot of them and I think that if viewed individually (if that is the option or choice) that there is not much that needs to be explained about the characters and the situations other than a modern rendering of a Jesus story (pronounced in that series "DJ Hey Zeus") and the life and lifestyle of a metal band.

When I was a child, the FCC had rules against making toys out of television characters. I confess that now, I would love to have a action figure collection including the five-seater motorcycle that they drew for Dethklok. <rant>Jesus also has some toys -- I am so not interested in those; I could write perhaps a masters thesis on how not interested I am in the Lucy Daughter of the Devil toys and the wrongness of using profiles to "market" technology when a simple "yes" or "no" would be more specific to the person being targeted.</rant> -- carol (talk) 21:14, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I don't know the TV show you are talking about, so it doesn't say a lot me. My Gothicness has nothing to do with Satanism or Paganism, but with art (Gothic architecture, Gothic ficition, God, Angels and Death etc) and philosophy. My look is pretty ordinary since I don't have the time or the will to invest in "Vampiric" fashion. By manifesting Gothic with art and philosopy I am Gothic, and yet a "Masorti" Jew.

  • Some editor on the english wiki has complained about part of this photo being fake and that it should not be used. I have to admit that the left hand side of the pano has been copied and pasted from the right hand side. If you think it is appropriate I will crop off the fake additions from the original image and re upload over the top off this one. If you don't want me to crop would it still be advisable to use the image in the other foreign wikis. How many foreign wikis have you inserted this photo in. Adam.J.W.C.

latuff categories[edit]

Of course no doubt some (maybe most) latuff images belong to categories Antisemitism, Racism, and Fascism. The question is, if they should be added to the gallery. I do not think so and I'd like to explain you why:
Although most Commons readers are enough educated and are enough intelligent to take latuff images for what they really are - hate, blunt, one sided propaganda, there are still some readers, who do not know history, and believe latuff images to be educational, peaceful and so on. That's why the less people to see the images the less harm they do. I hope you'd agree that the less categories the gallery has, the less people will see hateful propaganda. Isn't this what we really want now? That's why I stopped arguing about keeping my images, that I created to fight latuff caricatures. The thing is that my images were linked to latuff gallery and I suddenly realized that it is not what I want to do.Best wishes.--Mbz1 (talk) 20:14, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi MathKnight. For the same reasons as outlined here, I would ask that you consider removing the image from your signature. Regards. Adambro (talk) 18:38, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

OK. MathKnight 18:33, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Chartres cathedral[edit]

Hi there. I'll be in Chartres tomorrow and I'll have the occasion to take pictures of the cathedral (it was kind of unplanned...). Do you have something in particular you want me to shoot, if I can? Replies not fast enough will not be taken into account ;-) --Eusebius (talk) 17:34, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I would like you to take a picture of the three rose windows (west, south and north) from the inside, an overview of the cathedral, north facade, west facade, flying buttresses of the nave, flying butresses of the choir and apse, pictures of the interior - nave, choir, crossing and stained glass windows. And again, thank you very much! MathKnight 19:13, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
I don't promise anything, should be snowing tomorrow! --Eusebius (talk) 22:09, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh, :-( . In our place there is barely rain this year and the last two months were mainly sunny. Weather has gone insane this year. MathKnight 18:00, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Bad weather, no much light, very dark cathedral, in restoration: scaffoldings everywhere, one rose window hidden. I'm afraid I don't have anything good. I was not able to access the triforium, the roofs nor the towers. I have picture of some windows (not all of them, but some), the flying buttresses I could see from the ground. No general view of the nave (scaffoldings in the choir :-(), no good shot of the facade (no good angle). I'll put my uploads here, you may want to put the page on your watchlist. It usually takes me some time to process a shooting session, so be patient! I haven't had a look at the existing pictures about the cathedral, but I'm pretty sure mine will not be better. --Eusebius (talk) 18:30, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Thank for the effort and for updating me that this beautiful cathedral is with scaffolds. I'll keep an eye on the page you gave me. Thank you. MathKnight 18:36, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

I didn't recreate it after it was deleted today. I created it long time ago with all images taken from WikiCommons, I didn't know Arafat's pic was copyvio. MathKnight 16:19, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

File:ANDROS-sap1.jpg[edit]

What's going on with the colours in this photograph? Adambro (talk) 16:46, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

I did auto-levels with Photoshop due to bed lighting, so they might be some misplaced shadows and bright parts. MathKnight 18:11, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
There's clearly more than that, look at the picture at full size. Looks like auto-levels have been applied selectively, only on shadows and bright parts. The limit between the corrected and the non-corrected areas makes ugly things. --Eusebius (talk) 18:15, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm no expert on editing images but perhaps if you have the original and uploaded that someone might be able to improve things. Adambro (talk) 19:00, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't have the orginal :-( MathKnight 19:10, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
