Hi Mav

Just to say you 'Bravo !' for your photos on Egypt. Very fine and nice shots, especially those of Cairo museum garden and of Memphis small open-air museum.

I put more categories on some of them or correct other. Hope it will not disturb you...

Regards Neithsabes (talk) 00:00, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks - I'll check everything again after I'm done to make sure everything is in the right category. I generally start off with a general category when uploading but then find more specific categories afterward. --Mav (talk) 00:03, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment Neithsabes (Sebi) is very good at correctly cataloging images, I notice. He quickly added a catalogue (which I missed) for this image of Psusennes I's funerary mask which is usually in the Cairo Museum but was 'on loan' for an exhibition in France when the photo was taken: Image:Psusennes I mask by Rafaèle.jpg I've mostly done with uploading pictures to Commons for Neithsabes to catalogue. Cheers, --Leoboudv (talk) 07:10, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks ![edit]

Hi Mav

Thank you for your comment. Feel free to use it for the english wikipedia section ; some of them have english description but may be i made errors in my translation.

Tell me what you think about and if it's the case then i will correct them and upload a new correct version.

Cheers. Neithsabes (talk) 22:46, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

File:Plutonium pellet.jpg[edit]

If you have a question about the specific origin of an image, please feel free to ask the uploader. Don't just replace it with a totally different image. That's not even good practice even if it was a bad image.

I got that image directly from the DOE. I have updated it with the source link that shows it is from DOE, though there is no online link to the high-res version. That required me sending some e-mails and etc.

Note that eliminating my high-res one for a very low-res one not only is not very helpful to Commons, but also invalidates a lot of work I did on behalf of Commons to get a good image! --Fastfission (talk) 19:52, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

The burden on proof is on the uploader to provide sufficient evidence that an image conforms to the copyright tag they place. When an image lacks basic source info it can and should be removed. Doing otherwise could put the project in legal trouble. That said, I should have followed-up on my actions by notifying you. For that I apologize. But the image still has inadequate source information that needs to be provided. --mav
It's not my fault their website doesn't allow direct linking. The image ID is accurate, the copyright information is accurate if sparse. The data page says:
Image ID: 2006407

Caption: PLUTONIUM-238 SPHERE UNDER ITS OWN LIGHT. Program Category: Defense Photo Date: Site:

Credit: DOE Photo Keywords: INTERIOR, ,

search for "plutonium AND light" and it comes up. --Fastfission (talk) 22:49, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
Nobody is blaming you for the shortcomings of any website. Viewers of the image simply needed more info here on how to find information about the image on the source website. You have now provided it by telling the viewer what to search for. Thank you. --mav


Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Mav!

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.

Usage requirements for the Texas State Capitol Building image[edit]

hi Mav,

We are interested in using this image as one of several primary "hero" images on the home page of a web site. It would appear occasionally.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Texas_State_Capitol_building-front_left_front_oblique_view.JPG

Do you require an "attribute" to use this image? If yes, can you please specify exactly what you would require in order to use this image?

Thank you. Am also sending you an email.

Jack
