Copy Paste #2[edit]

Hey Mattes; Ich habe jetzt einfach mal ohne zu fragen verscht die kaputten Templates zu reparieren. Dreimal musste ich die Dateien vom VFC durchwühlen lassen, bis (hoffentlich) jetzt alles stimmt. (Das Datum mit der genaueren Zeitangabe (+Stunde,Minute,Sekunde) habe ich einfach so stehen gelassen.)
Hoffe das ist ok für dich. --McZusatz (talk) 15:14, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Yupp, danke für die schnelle Unterstützung! --Mattes (talk) 15:35, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Kleiner Tipp (hab ich früher auch immer falsch gemacht)[edit]

Cloisters heißt Kreuzgang, nicht Kloster. Kloster heißt auf Englisch "Monastery". --FA2010 (talk) 10:47, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Danke, gut zu wissen (de:Falscher Freund). --Mattes (talk) 11:36, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

File:Konstanz 2012-09-08 Batch (131).JPG[edit]

Ist der dunkle Bereich rechts wirklich so beabsichtigt? Das Bild wirkt so etwas seltsam. --Aa1bb2cc3dd4ee5 (talk) 20:15, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Der muß mal weggeschnitten werden..... Der reale Panoramabereich war kleiner als der der Kamera. --Mattes (talk) 20:18, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
War so auch meine Vermutung. Jetzt abgeschnitten. --Aa1bb2cc3dd4ee5 (talk) 20:22, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

File:'Venus and Cupid', oil on canvas painting by Battista Dossi (Battista de' Luteri), c. 1540, Philadelphia Museum of Art.jpg[edit]

Hi, you placed File:'Venus and Cupid', oil on canvas painting by Battista Dossi (Battista de' Luteri), c. 1540, Philadelphia Museum of Art.jpg in the Category:1540s paintings in the United Kingdom.
Where in the United Kingdom is this painting? And could you please give a source for that? Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 13:27, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

UK was the next pre-filled option. Of course, it should be "in the United States". Sorry, --Mattes (talk) 13:44, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

File:Der Liebeszauber by Niederrheinischer Meister.jpg[edit]

I noticed you separated the text "24 × 18 cm oil on panel" out of the Information template. Why is that? Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 13:30, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Because the uploader used the wrong template. Any artwork should be formatted with the {{Artwork}}. Artwork with {{Information}} get their title in the Description parameter. In {{Artwork}}, there is a title and a description parameter. --Mattes (talk) 13:41, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
As far as I know the upload procedure does not give a choice of templates (Or am I mistaken? I'm always using the old forms). Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 13:54, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Looks like you're right. I always use http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Upload&uploadformstyle=basic or Commonist. Newbies don't get the artwork template provided (not asked by the wizard). Only experienced users know about it. --Mattes (talk) 14:01, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

File:Pelz-Beinkleid des Ötzi, Südtiroler Archäologiemuseum.jpg[edit]

Hallo Mattes, der Ausschnitt des von Dir hochgeladenen Bilds wird wegen Verstoß gegen das italienische Urheberrecht gelöscht. Nichts zu machen? --Kürschner (talk) 11:12, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Jein, es gibt sicherlich noch Klärungsbedarf bzw. Möglichkeiten für eine Wiederherstellugn. Ich kümmere mich nicht draum, weil mich die Löschung des Bild (gesamte Rekonstruktion) ziemlich frustiert und geärgert hat. Ich weiß immer noch nicht, was an der Veröffentlichung Aufnahme urheberrechlich zu beanstanden ist. Zum Einlesen in die Materie and den anschließenden Kampf gegen die Windmühlen habe ich gerade gar keine Energie. Vielleicht kennt sich jemand aus Deinem Wiki-Netzwerk damit aus?! Wichtig wäre das Bild, da es in vielen Wikipedia-Augaben verwendet wurde (es gibt kein vergleichbares). --Mattes (talk) 12:29, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Crop ok?[edit]

Habe ich den richtigen Ausschnitt erwischt? https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File%3AJugglers_Egypt.jpg&diff=78937641&oldid=63577503 --McZusatz (talk) 19:47, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Bad Säckingen 2012-08-18[edit]

Hallo Mattes,

schön dass du dich am WLM beteiligst. Beiträge zum Wettbewerb sind während des ganzen Septembers möglich. Dein Bild File:Bad Säckingen 2012-08-18 Mattes 35.JPG hattest du aber schon deutlich vorher hochgeladen – so nimmt es am WLM nicht teil. --Atamari (talk) 21:50, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Verstehe ich nicht, auf der Startseite steht
"Während des Monats September haben Sie die Möglichkeit, möglichst viele Ihrer Denkmalbilder hochzuladen. Damit die Bilder an dem Wettbewerb teilnehmen können, müssen sie nicht zwangsläufig im September fotografiert, sondern nur hochgeladen worden sein. "

--Mattes (talk) 11:41, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

der 18. August 2012 liegt deutlich vor dem 1. September --Atamari (talk) 23:47, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Kontakt zu Regionalzeitung Basel[edit]

Lieber Mattes

Ich habe gesehen, dass du dutzende Bilder von Basler Sehenswürdigkeiten geschossen hast. Kannst du mich unter samuel.hufschmid@20minuten.ch kurz kontaktieren und erzählen, wie es dazu kam? Wir könnte uns vorstellen, dich im Lokalteil der Zeitung 20 Minuten zu porträtieren und von deiner Reise nach Basel erzählen zu lassen. Liebe Grüsse, Samuel Hufschmid Redaktor 20 Minuten Basel

portrait 20 minuten[edit]

Guten Tag.

Habe nichts mehr von Ihnen gehört. Sind Sie noch interessiert an einem Treffen für ein Portrait in der Zeitung 20 Minuten? Ich könnte Morgen (Dienstag) oder am Mittwoch morgen bei ihnen vorbeischauen, oder wir könnten uns am Sonntag in Basel treffen.

Liebe Grüsse, Samuel Hufschmid samuel.hufschmid@20minuten.ch

License changes (and reversions)[edit]

Hi there,

I removed the "CC" license on some of your images because I thought it contradicted the "PD" status of the images.

However, I have reverted all these changes, as I am not 100% sure that I was correct. Please accept my apologies. Ubcule (talk) 20:24, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

No problem. I licensed the photographic work with CC-BY 2.0 and the motif with PD-old. --Mattes (talk) 20:26, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I understand that was maybe what you meant- that was why I reversed my changes.
It is complicated, because rules vary in different countries.
In the US- where Commons is based- one cannot claim new copyright on "faithful" reproductions of 2D images. Therefore, in the US, you do not own any copyright on those photographs, and they have the same "PD due to age" status as the originals.
My mistake happened because, under US law, if the image is "PD due to age", then it is non-copyrighted and cannot be CC-licensed. It also means that you do not own any copyright. (Both these mean that your CC licensing does not apply- the first because it contradicts the "PD" status, and the second because one must own the copyright on an image to impose a CC license).
However... in other countries, one can still claim a separate copyright on the reproduction. Although your CC license on those reproductions does not apply in the US, it is still relevant elsewhere.
Perhaps you could add some text to make clear that "PD due to age" applies to the original document, and that "CC licensing" applies to the reproduction (but only in countries that allow copyright on "faithful" reproductions).
Maybe I made this too complicated? Sorry... ;-O
Ubcule (talk) 12:18, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Hm, that's too complicated for me. I have transfered the matter to Commons:Village pump/Copyright#PD-old and CC for own photographs (captured in Germany and Switzerland). At least I understand the problem. :-) I have licensed about 2,000 photographs this way at Commons... --16:13, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
I have a bad habit of making things sound even more complicated than they are. :-(
But yes- it was a good idea to seek further advice. I had considered saying that myself. All the best, Ubcule (talk) 18:51, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

München et al.[edit]

Danke dir für die Umkategorisierungen! :-) Wollte mich noch beim Münchner Stammtisch melden und dort darum bitten, aber noch nicht die richtige Gelegenheit gefunden. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 10:32, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Deine Bilder[edit]

Hallo, Ich habe einige deiner Bilder in der "Category:Bolzano" verschoben (bzw. umbenannt), Beispiel: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Bozen_Zigarettenautomat.jpg&action=history. Wieso giebst du deinen Bildern für Bozen Namen wie "Bozen 1 (161).JPG"? Wäre es nicht sinnvoller zu nennen was das Foto beinhaltet? Danke für die vielen tollen Fotos und Viele Grüße --Steinsplitter (talk) 21:26, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Guten Abend,

Sicherlich ist es sinnvoll(er) — Ich kann aber bei hunderten von Bildern pro Monat nicht jedem Bild von mir einen distinguierten Namen geben, das haut aus Zeitmangel einfach nicht hin. Im September waren es allein über 1.200. Leider muß ich mich mit den genererierten Dateinamen (Hochladeassistent) zufrieden geben und bangen, dass sich jemand darum kümmert. Hinzu kommt oft auch, dass ich gar nichts genaues über das Motiv weiß (Israel, BaWü, Südtirol, Schweiz usw.). Daher: Danke an jeden, der bei den Dateibeschreibungen und Umbenennungen mithilft!!! --Mattes (talk) 21:35, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Danke für die Antwort. Ich war mir nur nicht sicher ob ich die Fotos übethaupt umbenennen darf. Viele Grüße--Steinsplitter (talk) 21:49, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Spundwand : Dammbalken[edit]

Bei den Fotos der "Spundwände" aus Bad Kissingen (z.B. "File:Bad Kissingen - Spundwände für den Hochwasserschutz (IBS).JPG") handelt es sich um Dammbalken oder auch Hochwasserschutzwände, aber nicht um Spundwände. Das ist auch aus den Bezeichnungen auf der web-Seite des Herstellers IBS ersichtlich. Siehe http://www.hochwasserschutz.de/produktbereiche/hochwasserschutz/mobile-waende.html

Category:Wet moons[edit]

This is the default orientation of crescents in the English heraldic tradition (and probably some others), so you could expand this category with hundreds of coat-of-arms images -- but I'm not sure there would be much point to it... AnonMoos (talk) 06:04, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Kunst für Alle[edit]

Hallo Mattes, du hattest File:Prell ruhe auf der flucht.jpg in die Kategorie kunst-fuer-alle.de einsortiert. Bitte beachte, dass das Bild aus der ZEITSCHRIFT Die Kunst für alle stammt und meines Wissens nichts mit der Webseite www.kunst-fuer-alle.de zu tun hat. -- Gerd Fahrenhorst (talk) 09:01, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Hallo, ich habe mich leider vertan. Die Massenzuordnung von heute Nacht habe ich noch nicht gesichtet. Die Kategorie habe ich jetzt herausgenommen. Ich bitte um Entschuldigung. --Mattes (talk) 09:24, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Ja gut, ist erledigt. Nebenbei: was die Briefmarke in der Kategorie macht, ist mir auch unklar. Ciao -- Gerd Fahrenhorst (talk) 12:34, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Alexey Bogolybov - Port of Tallinn (1853).jpg‎[edit]

Hello, I dont't understand why You moved that file from one meaningless category to another one. That painting is in permanent collection in Kadriorg palace. Ahsoous (talk) 00:34, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Cappella Tornabuoni‎[edit]

Hallo Mattes,

Du kannst doch sicher Gallerieseiten kategorisieren. Ich dachte ich könnte das auch, aber plötzlich war diese Seite nicht mehr in der gleichnamigen cat aufgeführt. Was ist falsch. Danke für Deine Hilfe.--Oursana (talk) 09:27, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Keine Ahnung, sowas habe ich noch nie gesehen. Bereits wegen der eingebundenen Institution-Vorlage müßte schon eine Kategoriezuordnung erledigt sein... Vielleicht vorübergehender Systemfehler? --Mattes (talk) 09:47, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Danke für den Versuch, die letzte Gallerieklammer fehlte, das war's. Grüsse --Oursana (talk) 18:06, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Cormon Fernand Le harem Oil On Canvas.jpg[edit]

Don't want to be ultra-picky, but not sure why you included "Paintings lacking painting technique information" on an image which has "Oil On Canvas" in its filename... SFriendly.gif -- AnonMoos (talk) 13:06, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

oh thanks, --Mattes (talk) 13:20, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

"Portraits"[edit]

[1]: Hmm. I wouldn't normally call something like this a "portrait". Normally, that word (when applied to a photo) suggests a more formal sort of pose, not a candid shot like this. - Jmabel ! talk 04:42, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Not sure, you're probably right. Could you help me? This is a huge field for work. I do the art stuff OK? Thanks, --Mattes (talk) 04:54, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for reverting. I'm afraid I'm not in a position right now to give time to other people's reclassification work, I'm pretty loaded up myself. - Jmabel ! talk 06:34, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

You moved lots of images to "Portraits with books in art". 1st "in art" is totally superfluous in this name, Category:Portraits with books is good enough. 2nd, many of those are not portraits in the sense we usually use the word (as "portrait of an individual, possibly nameable human"), but just anything with a person on it (like "Virgin Mary" paintings and such). --FA2010 (talk) 08:41, 21 November 2012 (UTC)


Also, File:Gentileschi, Orazio - Public Felicity Triumphant over Dangers - 1624-1625.jpg and File:Eugen de Blaas The Flirtation.jpg, which are an allegory and a genre scene. None of the information on the image description pages indicates that they're portraits... AnonMoos (talk) 12:42, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Category:Portraits with books in art[edit]

Tell me, dear friend, what means the name of this category? If can be "portraits with books NOT in art"? "Portraits with book in art" can meant only something like "paintings depicting portraits with books"... I believe it is mistake after creating "people with books in art", and you should rename it simply in "portraits with books". --Shakko (talk) 20:48, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

There are photographic portraits with books, too. Therefore I've created an art variation to distinguish photographs from artwork. Greetings, --Mattes (talk) 20:52, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
photographic portraits with books should be simply subcat of main portraits with books, same like painted portraits with book, engraved portraits with books and sculp. portraits with book. "In art" for sure is unnecessary. I can't see the logic. See what we have in Category:Paintings in art: depictions of artwork in other artwork. You in your category mean something other. And by the way, photography is also the visual art. --Shakko (talk) 21:14, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
I have modified the structure now. I think it is OK
Overview of the inventory and hierarchies of Portraits with books (depth=3) (part of People with books + Portraits by detail):

Maybe we need a broader discussion on the category talk page?! --Mattes (talk) 22:00, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

you see, there is the same question from other user. I beliуve you et confused and should simply remove "in art". Shakko (talk) 18:14, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

speedy deletion[edit]

Mattes, don't recreate it please. Every "portrait" is ART. If it isn't art, in isn't portrait, is simple image. "Portrait photograph" and "photograph of man" aren't the same. Not every photo of man is portrait photo of man

We have in commons the system. Don't change it according to your own understanding of terms. --Shakko (talk) 20:29, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Category:Madonna with the Child Reading by Jan van Eyck[edit]

What are you doing?? Go and read the definition of "portrait genre" en:Portrait! Paintings of Madonna, saints and Jesus are not portraits! 'Cos they definitely can't reflect their likeness. Portrait is the image of concrete, specific person's face, even if the name is unknown. File:Rembrandt - Artemisia - WGA19234.jpg also isn't portrait - it is fictional queen, the history painting. File:August Allebé - De vlinders.jpg absolutely not a portrait - simply genre scene. File:Claude Vignon Croesus.jpg - not portrait, Ancient myth. File:Boucher L’Éducation de l'Amour.jpg, File:El Greco 035.jpg... Especially File:Hirsau-Marienkapelle 111-1.JPG - what kind of portrait?? Please, stop it. --Shakko (talk) 18:26, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, my information is based on de:Porträtmalerei whereas they are " a genre of paintings which the aim to depict a person" (Original: "ein Genre der Malerei, dessen Gegenstand die Abbildung eines Menschen in einem Gemälde ist."). I have asked for a more precise definition there. Greetings, --Mattes (talk)
JFTR: 99% of my miscategorized (alleged) "portrait-paintings" are recategorized now, mostly by myself. Sorry again. ::Recapitulating, these are not portrait-paintings of people ("Black list"):
  • any religious figures from the bible, torah, qur'an, etc. (except donor portraits)
  • any saints (except donor portraits); a couple of hundreds are not bible saints.
  • any genre paintings
  • I guess any winged figures
  • snapshots
... Awaiting your comments... Cheers, --Mattes (talk) 22:52, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

HotCat shortcuts[edit]

Hi Mattes; hereby a copy of a message of user:Lupo that implemented a feature that you need badly. --Foroa (talk) 12:52, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

A first prototype is ready now. The functionality is not yet in the gadget, though, thus if you want to test it, it's a bit involved:

importScript('User:Lupo/c2.js');

User:Lupo/c2.js is my private development version of HotCat. To switch back to the normal HotCat gadget, remove the "importScript" line again, re-enable the gadget, and reload the browser cache.

A first shot at some documentation for this is at User:Lupo/hc_shortcuts. I'll probably add a few screenshots of shortcuts in action before this goes live.

If anything is unclear, or doesn't work, or could or should be improved, leave me a message, either here or on my talk page. Please test it thoroughly; and use it for a while with shortcuts defined. Our version of HotCat is used on many Wikipedias directly; before we can update our gadget with this, we'll have to be reasonably sure that it won't cause problems.

Cheers, Lupo 11:52, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. Well, personally, I don't need such a feature, I pass it on User:Mattes that needs such a thing badly. --Foroa (talk) 12:52, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
Great! I'll try that -- although I have no idea about Java... Cheers, --Mattes (talk) 12:55, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

File:MA-Lebrun.jpg[edit]

You added "Paintings not categorised by year", but it says 1783... AnonMoos (talk) 13:55, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

the description reads "Salon de Paris 1783", which means the painting was presented to the public in that year. In my understanding this does not necessarily mean the year of accomplishment. You can add it, I don't do it... --Mattes (talk) 13:59, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok, but then at least you know "1783 or earlier"... AnonMoos (talk) 15:46, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Fine with me :-) --Mattes (talk) 15:51, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Als ich vor einem halben Jahr den Abschnitt zu den Umlaut-Kennzeichen eingefügt hatte hielt ich es nicht für möglich, dass man vierzig Jahre nach der Gebietsreform noch Nummernschilder mit dem bisher einzigen "Ä" der deutschen Nummernschildgeschichte auftreiben könne.

Wem auch immer der alte Deutz gehört, er sollte das Schild auch nach Ausmusterung des Fahrzeugs als Rarität aufbewahren oder ggf. einem Heimat- oder Nummernschildmuseum vermachen.

Selbst bei einer erneuten Zuteilung eienr "Ä"-Kombination werden es dann keine DIN-Zeichen mehr sein.

portrait paintings[edit]

Hi Mattes. We share interest in the arts it seems. I see you around a lot. I have a suggestion. I would like to see "Category:1890s paintings" as a direct parent of your categories like "Category:1890s portrait paintings". If you look at "Category:1890s paintings", you see that it is easy to reach "1890s still-life paintings" for example, but not easy to reach "1890s portrait paintings" at all. This would be useful when using tools like Cat Scan to find 1890s works, for one reason. The 1890 (portrait) paintings would not be found when scanning down the category tree, otherwise. Regards, Boo-Boo Baroo (talk) 03:47, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi there, you'er right [[:Category:<decade>s portrait paintings]] needs a [[:Category:<decade>s paintings]], too. Of course, thanks for notifying. I'll fix that after sunrise --Mattes (talk) 23:32, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good. I can help if you like. I did see your previous message, with the links I had not come across before. It looks like the guidance around art categorization is not very formalized (as I expected). I am comfortable with my own method, knowing that I take care of artist, date/period, collection, genre/topic/etc. Cheers Boo-Boo Baroo (talk) 00:23, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Mission accomplished ✓OK --Mattes (talk) 09:43, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Template:Anonymize[edit]

Hi Mattes. I don't think your Template:Anonymize is a good idea. Once an image is uploaded it may be reused. If the non-anonymised version is on the internet somewhere, then you can use the anonymised version to find it using Google Image Search. See this TV program for examples. I've tried it and it works. Images with privacy issues should be swiftly deleted. Pixelation and black bands over the eyes and other techniques are ineffective. Colin (talk) 15:47, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Hello Colin. As Commons:Personality rights states, "the best remedy is to edit carefully to protect people's rights." ... the earlier the better... After being anonymized, images of identifiable people are "waterproof" for all countries (for Germany: § 22 KunstUrhG and § 23 KunstUrhG). The similar image search is not a problem for Commons (if a face is visible for just a few hours at Commons, it is most likely not catched up by other websites; but if the face is here for months it most likely will be). After all, it avoids uploaders from being involved in potential legal cases. Cheers, --Mattes (talk) 16:57, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Of course it depends on what one means by "anonymized". The example I deleted from Commons:Photographs of identifiable people using pixelation fails the test. My point is that the persistence of images on the Internet combined with tools like Google Image Search means that anonymising techniques one may be familiar may be ineffectual. I am glad to see that the Commons:Personality rights essay also states "Putting a black strip over someone's eyes in a photo or pixelating a face may not sufficiently protect their right of publicity". I don't feel it is acceptable for users to be encouraged to upload an image that fails our policy provided they slap a template on it expecting someone else to cleanup the image. Better for the uploader to carefully edit the image appropriately (such as cropping) to avoid the problem altogether. Surely the legal and moral burden has always been mainly on the uploader, who must not rely on a third party fixing their mistakes. Colin (talk) 17:57, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
You forgot that not every every user has the skill to do the anon-work, example of my low profile skills in this area: File:Sicherheitsfachkräfte der U-Bahn-Wache München.jpg. --Mattes (talk) 19:28, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
What is the purpose of that photograph? With the eyes covered, I can't see anyone using it for any purpose. If the people didn't want their photograph taken or didn't want it uploaded to Commons, then your attempt at anonymising them hasn't worked. They are all easily identifiable to anyone who knows them. Colin (talk) 17:16, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Please discuss it in a DR and/or @ Commons:Requests for comment/images of identifiable people --Mattes (talk) 23:25, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Re "What is the purpose of that photograph?" — The purpose is to illustrate the uniforms and the equipment of the security guards. --Mattes (talk) 00:37, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Hallo Mattes, ich habe Category:1520s paintings from Germany entfernt, deutscher Maler, deutsches Museum, ich sehe da kein from. Vgl. Category:Baroque paintings from Italy nglish: Baroque paintings produced by Italian painters, currently located outside Italy. For baroque paintings in Italy please see: Category:Baroque paintings in Italy. Die anderen Files sind im Ausland. LG –Oursana (talk) 00:27, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Grundsatzdisku :-O betrifft einige tausend Dateien … Aaalso, da hat jemand (du/ich) das System mißverstanden.
Das Bild stammt aus den 1520er Jahren (Fertigstellung) und aus Deutschland (der Maler war Deutscher) → Category:1520s paintings from Germany. Wo sich das Gemälde befindet ist hierbei unerheblich.
mMn nicht unerheblich, es gehört in Kategorien ...in Germany, from setzt Bewegung voraus, so kannte ich es und habe nur als Beispiel Category:Baroque paintings from Italy herausgesucht
Betr. Category:Baroque paintings from Italy mit der Erklärung Baroque paintings produced by Italian painters, currently located outside Italy ist mir völlig neu — vielleicht sollte man das (was gehört in die ...s paintings from ...) auf höherer Ebene bequatschen?!

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Category:Unidentified buildings[edit]

Hi, imho usually there is no need to use (p.e.) Category:Unidentified buildings in Switzerland, instead you may use (p.e.) Category:Buildings in Laufenburg, Switzerland respectively create a 'municipality-related' sub-category Buildings in xxx to avoid 'overflooding'.

imho the same for Category:Unidentified buildings in Basel, so you categorized before as Category:Wooden doors in Basel and/or a category of a Basel-related subcategory, among them districts etc.

You may agree, that there is just a handfull of Wikimedians who would be able to really identify 'such' unidentified buildings ;-) In all, thank you for your uploads and avoiding a 'over-flooding' of the above mentionned categories, regards, Roland 18:54, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Mistaken file description[edit]

I think the description and street address on this file: File:Bad Säckingen - Kursaal außen (2012) (2).JPG are mistaken.

Bonjour, Cette photo était marquée comme ayant besoin de correction de ses perspectives "transform it's not on a hill..." J'ai fait deux essais, merci de valider, car je ne connais pas ce lieu et les corrections peuvent être erronées...

Panoramio help[edit]

I've come here because you're in Category:Commons users with an account on Panoramio. Could you message someone and ask for a free license for an image? Despite reading Panoramio's help pages, I can't yet figure out which free licenses are available through the website, so I don't know what to ask for. The reason I'd like to use this image is that it shows a house that's been destroyed; I'd like to use it at en:National Register of Historic Places listings in Gallatin County, Illinois, which currently has nothing better than File:Peeples Houses site in Old Shawneetown.jpg for the site. Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 14:41, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Cannot reach my Panoramio account (even with my google account data), sorry. When I choose "cannot reach your account" I get ...accounts/recovery/forgotusername and that'll change not only the Panoramio account. Please ask someone else. --Mattes (talk) 15:09, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Wrong Location with Automatic procedures[edit]

"the Upload Wizard adds the proper Geocoding Templates from the GPS data stored in your images"

Sometimes this kind of automatic procedure gives a very approximate location. not sure that it is very useful. by exemple, automatic procedure point to a location in the middle of a city, for a place that is somewhere around in that city. it is enough to indicate the city in the categories, this kind of location is useless. Moreover, it is misleading because it can make people believe that it is accurate information and they will not give it if they have actually the accurate information. so I suggest that this approximate location should be deleted as soon as the correct category is found.

to give an exemple : some photos with GPS data were taken in the jewish quarter of the old city of Jerusalem. the automatic procedure add the same geocoding located in the middle of the neighborhood for all the photos. when the appropriate category is found (ie "Category:Jewish Quarter, Jerusalem"), this approximative location is useless and misleading.

At least it must be clearly stated with a special mention, that this location is approximate, and not accurate.

Bigger, Better, Art Object Images from the New NGA Web Site[edit]

Good Day,

I would like to thank you for your contributions such as File:Martin_Johnson_Heade-Cattleya_Orchid_and_Three_Brazilian_Hummingbirds.jpg. Good news! This image is now available via the Open Access program at even higher resolutions and possibly better scan quality. For example, the new location is Cattleya Orchid and Three Hummingbirds and is 1200 px by 900 px (old version was 1000 px by 760 px).

Bad coordinates[edit]

All of the pictures that you are uploading now have invalid coordinates. It would be better to use {{Location possible}} rather than have invalid coordinates. •••Life of Riley (TC) 16:37, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi, yes the camera generates some weird GPS data. I have just bought it and the GPS software to support data synchronization with maps is not installed yet. The good news is, the coordinates still work for Open Street Map.
Can't suppress the recorded geo tags in batch uploads with Commonist. Couple of hundreds to go though. Don't bother, maybe a bot will fix it, or there is a solution with batch tasks (exchange bad coord with "loc possible"). I even don't know if we need coordinates of exhibits in a museum, although this one is huge. --Mattes (talk) 18:23, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Coordinates needed[edit]

Do you know where this building is in München? The given coordinates point to a town called Kempten, about 100 km from Munich. •••Life of Riley (TC) 16:58, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Credit line[edit]

Hallo Mattes, Credit line als Namensnennung des Fotografen, hat nichts zu tun mit „Credit line“ im Art-Template, für das es kein entsprechendes passendes deutsches Wort gibt. In America z.B. sind die Museen mehr oder weniger verpflichtet die Namen der Spender oder leihgeber der Kunstwerke immer mitzubenennen mit tlw. umständlichen Texten. In Deutschl. wird soetwas kaum gehandhabt. Im Fall des Bildes Cranach, Lucas — Das Opfer Abrahams sind die Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen der Leihgeber, die dann an dieser Position genannt werden können. Für Fotografennamensnennung gibt es z.B. diese Möglichkeit: |other_fields={{Credit line|Author= [[User:Mattes]]|License=PD-Art}}. Gruß --Botaurus (talk) 15:11, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Nichts zu danken. Die Sache ist ja nicht auf die USA beschränkt. Wegen der Artwork Parameter siehe auch hier.

Problem with file[edit]

Leonardo, not Michelangelo

Can you please get this file either fixed or deleted? It is not by Michelangelo. And you have reversed the image. What is more, the image, in this incorrect state, seems to have been used in an article. It is by Leonardo da Vinci. That is why the writing is right to left.

Doch, weil alle anderen keine Kategorien waren, etwas pragmatisch… --Mattes (talk) 16:13, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
Wir sind beide in guter Gesellschaft. Du kannst ja Deinen Standpunkt noch mal überdenken. 80 % der Kategorien verlinken auf wP-Seiten, wen wunderts, eben auch pragmatisch. Und Du verlinkst doch auch einen WP-Artikel auf commons-cat. Gruß--Oursana (talk) 17:10, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Sigismund III of Poland Rubens.jpg[edit]

Hallo Mattes, diese eigentlich schöne Kategorie müllt ganz schön zu. Die Files sind regelmäßig unsortiert mehrfach, wobei man mit einer Sortierung artist, title evtl. year Chancen des Wiederfindens hat. Bilder mit einer Sortierung n Datum sind imho nicht auffindbar. Hier sind die Versionen untereinander verlinkt und wenn das Doppelportrait 1x da ist reicht das doch, oder? Dies ist das einzige Detail und wenn überhaupt sollte es zum Portrait sortiert sein. Gruß--Oursana (talk) 22:25, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Hab das jetzt mal so gelöst: "Wenn es eigene Kategorien für einzelne Werke gibt, wird selbige hier eingeordnet." (diff) Die Details werde die demnächst rauswerfen. Das ganze soll eine Art Arbeitskategorie sein, damit ich endlich mal bei Alte Pinakothek weiterkomme. Das mit dem Sortierschlüssel Jahr habe ich schon lange aufgegeben. --Mattes (talk) 22:32, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
Ich meinte Category:Portraits in the Alte Pinakothek, da reicht doch eine Version.Gruß--Oursana (talk) 22:57, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
Versteh ich nicht, das ist ja keine Galerie. Mach wie Du meinst, damit ich weiß, was Du meinst. --Mattes (talk) 23:01, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
Ich bin jetzt hier eigentlich wieder weg. Aber das mit der Galerie ist eigentlich der Gedanke, weil cats keine Müllhalden sein sollen. Alle Files müssen in die spezifische cat des Künstlers. Aber wenn Du alle Versionen in alle cats mitnimmst, das geht nicht gut. Wenn man restriktiv Unterkategorien bildet, weil die ja die Bilder nicht mehr zeigen, dann müssen die (dann größeren) cats übersichtlich sein. Wenn nun zB 100 Files in je 4 Versionen unsortiert in den subcats herumfliegen (bzw nach Datum und Title gemischt), hast Du den regelmäßigen commons Alptraum. Guck Dir mal cats wie 1720s paintings… o.ä. an. Allerdings geht das nur, wenn im artwork die Versionen festgehalten werden, damit sie so zusammenbleiben. Kannst ja mal drüber nachdenken. Brauchst Du das noch für die Flatlist? Das wir uns über die Sortierung einig sind freut mich sehr, siehe aber. Hilfe, kannst Du bitte die andere Version wieder hereinnehmen, die ist seit Uhrzeiten drin, und nur so habe ich das ganze Portrait gefunden. Das Detail ist die schw.w Ausführung des Portraits, steht doch in der Quelle. Das hat jetzt echt viel Zeit gekostet. --Oursana (talk) 23:54, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Domenico Beccafumi - Fall of the Rebel Angels - WGA01546.jpg:Category:Paintings of angels with humans[edit]

Hallo Mattes,

frohe Weihnachten für Dich. Diese cat gehört wenn überhaupt zur Oberkategorie, sie müsste auch dringend aufgeteilt werden. Aber in Himmel oder Hölle sind doch keine Humans. Kann sie hier nicht ganz weg? Gruß --Oursana (talk) 00:35, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Gott zu Gruße, Cat. ist raus, danke. Bezüglich der Frage, ob es Menschen im Himmel bzw. in der Hölle gibt: Von der Ideologie her gibt es sie nicht mehr, das heißt nur noch deren Seelen. Die Bild. Kunst hat aber stets die Menschen figurativ dargestellt (Seelen sind de facto unsichtbar). Nun gibt es hier für unsere Kateg.-Systematik tatsächlich ein deskriptives Problem. Für die Kategorisierung "Engel und Menscheseelen" (letztere jedoch mit Körpern dargestellt) könnte man folgendermaßen lösen:
  1. Category:Humans with angels mit Unterkat. Category:Paintings of angels with humans bleibt, egal ob Körper oder Seele (evtl. Hinweis Kat.-Beschr.)

oder komplizierter

  1. Category:Souls with angels mit Unterkat. Category:Paintings of angels with souls

Ich würde sagen, dass wir die Systematik so lassen wie sie ist. Außer wenn Category:Humans with angels im Fall von "Seelen die mit Körpern dargestellt werden" ersatzlos gestrichen werden sollte, dann doch Variante 2. Wünsche auch frohe Festtage. --Mattes (talk) 12:50, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

SUL und de-Wikibooks[edit]

Hallo, du hast auf de-WB eine "fremde" Benutzerseite geändert. Offensichtlich ist es deine eigene; durch die SUL-Finalisierung willst du wohl die Verweise anpassen und vereinheitlichen. Ich möchte dich deshalb auf ein paar Punkte hinweisen.

  • Benutzerseiten in Projekten, in denen man nicht aktiv ist, sind IMHO eher irrelevant.
  • Wäre es nicht passender, die Benutzerseite "Denkmurmel" zu verschieben nach Benutzer:Mattes?
  • Für Interwiki-Links gibt es die Kurzfassungen b:de:User:Denkmurmel statt der Langfassungen mit http. Die sehen besser aus und sind wartungsfreundlicher. Ich wundere mich, dass du nach so langer Aktivität dies nicht beachtest.
  • Bei der von dir gewählten Schriftgröße 21px passt viel weniger Text auf eine Bildschirmseite; das liest sich meiner Ansicht nach viel schlechter. Ich hoffe, du hast einen guten Grund für diese generelle Festlegung.

AFAR also provides destination guides for partners, such as Westin Finds from AFAR, in which AFAR recommends places for Westin Hotel guests to visit. (See westinfinds.com/) We would also like to include your image in these recommendations.

If this is acceptable to you, I need you to reply to me that you are in agreement with the following provision, have the rights to the image and are authorized to provide this consent:

Do you have some basis to think I manipulated the colors in the photo I uploaded? Or does your very brief comment mean something else? (The colors have not been altered; the picture wasn't even postprocessed.) - Jmabel ! talk 21:35, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

OK Looks to me the colors in our File:Boeing firetruck 01.jpg came out wrong. a better photograph. Boeing Fire Department's fleet is traditionally yellow. http://www.boeing.com/assets/images/companyoffices/aboutus/fire/images/evt93_n.jpg Other images support that: https://www.google.de/search?q=Boeing+Fire+Department&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=fvL&rls=org.mozilla:de:official&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=3MrqUpKXGqfr4wTunIC4BA&ved=0CAoQ_AUoAg&biw=1440&bih=705 except the second one.

G. Münter-Bild[edit]

Hallo Mattes, ich bin ein noch sehr unerfahrener Autor von Wikipedia-Artikeln und hoffe, dass ich hier den richtigen Platz gefunden habe, um Dir eine Frage zu stellen.

Bin gerade dabei, einen Artikel über eine Malerin zu schreiben, die eng mit Gabriele Münter befreundet war. Bei der Gelegenheit bin ich über das Commons von Gabriele Münter auf Dein hochgeladenes Foto aus dem Lenbachhaus gestoßen. Dort steht, dass dieses gemeinfrei sei, weil das abgebildete Bild germeinfrei ist. G. Münter ist aber noch keine 70 Jahre tot und so müsste das Bild noch dem Urheberrecht unterliegen. Da ich gerne auch in meinem Artikel Bilder einbinden möchte, interessiert mich sehr, was nun erlaubt ist und was nicht. Kannst Du mir einen Rat geben?

Gruß, WWmunich

Übersehen, man braucht unterhalb der 70 J. eine gesonderte Erlaubnis des Rechteinhabers. Da ich die nicht habe, wird es bis 2037 gelöscht File:München Lenbachhaus 20130628 (35).JPG. MfG, --Mattes (talk) 18:36, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Altes Rathaus[edit]

Hallo Mattes, bei der Dateibenennung von File:Amberg - Altes Rathaus (Schild).jpg ist dir ein Schnitzer passiert. Wie der Vergleich mit File:Bayreuth 03.04.07 Maximilianstrasse 33 Altes Rathaus 1724.jpg und File:Bayreuth Maximilianstrasse 33, Altes Rathaus, Schild, 03.04.07.jpg deutlich zeigt, wurde das Bild nicht in Amberg, sondern in Bayreuth aufgenommen. In Amberg gibt es nur ein Rathaus, kein "altes" Rathaus. Schöne Grüße --FordPrefect42 (talk) 02:20, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Hallo, danke für den Hinweis. Hab' die Datei nun umbenannt. Beste Grüße aus Bayern, --Mattes (talk) 06:00, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Buildings with flags in Italy[edit]

Hi Mattes, I saw your edit on the file Usseglio municipio.jpg‎, where you added the Buildings with flags in Italy cat. I don't know if you could be interested in it, but almost all the italian town halls show flags (of Italy, of EU and of the regione whose they belong). Maybe it could be a task for a bot... --F Ceragioli (talk) 20:36, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I have created that category :-) I'll see what I can do! Best wishes, --Mattes (talk) 04:34, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Template Christie's online[edit]

I see that you recently edited this template - it doesn't seem to be working now, and I have no idea how to fix it. can you help? - PKM (talk) 18:42, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Well I have created the Category:Images from Christie's and added that to the template with "noinclude". This works fine. The template has been created by User:Zolo. --Mattes (talk) 18:59, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
