I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!

Use of photos showing trolling motors.[edit]

Hi Nick, My name is Doreen. I have a website www.the-boating-store.com. I live in the UK.

Would you give me permission to use your photos showing trolling motors on a page of my site where the subject is trolling motors. I am more than happy to site you as the photographer.

I find the wikicommons legal stuff confusing - so thought I would contact you this way instead.

With thanks

Hi Doreen. Thank you for requesting to use the images rather than just doing so illegally.
On your request, I have release the following image in the public domain.
You may now reuse them as you wish without any license requirements.

Minn Kota photos.[edit]

Much obliged to you Nick. I have downloaded them and will add them to the site in the next few days. Will add 'photographer NJR ZA wikipedia'. Is that OK?

Leopard Vehicle[edit]

Hi Nick,

I would like to use your image of the leopard vehicle for a paper I am writing for a medical journal. Would it be possible to get permission to use the image, and if yes, could you tell me how you would like to be accredited?

Kind regards

Arul

Dear Nick, My name is Shem Oirere, a freelance journalist based in Nairobi, Kenya. I was requesting if I could use your photo on solar hot water system taken at the Kouga local municipality (May 1, 2011) to illustrate an article I have on solar energy. I will give credit to you for the photo once permission is granted by you.

Many thanks and hope to hear from you

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

Shipwreck categories for Diving the Cape Peninsula and False Bay[edit]

Hi NJR ZA, To avoid duplicating the work, I will concentrate on the animal photos and leave the wrecks to you as I am not sure how to create categories for ships for which the date of construction is not known, or which changed name at some stage. Some wreck categories needed are: SS Cape Matapan, MFV Katsu Maru, MFV Aster, Highfields, SS Hypatia, MV Gemsbok, SS Clan Stuart, SS Clan Monroe, SS Umhlali, SS Bia, MV Romelia, MV Antipolis, MV Daeyang Family, SS Oakburn, Bos400, SAS Gelderland, MV Ker Yar Vor, RMS Athens, MV Treasure, MFV Princess Elizabeth, MV Rockeater, SAS Fleur (HMS Barbrake), SAS Bloemfontein. There may be others too which I can't think of offhand. Cheers, · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 06:39, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

OK. It will take a while to do all the ships as I will need to research the date the ship was constructed, but I'll keep working on those till we have them all and where possible also create wikipedia articles for each ship with their history. --NJR_ZA (talk) 07:20, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
OK, Thanks, I will keep a lookout for the new categories. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 07:51, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

CTA382[edit]

You recategorised the vessel, with reason that the indication on the ship has to be used. That reason is correct, but you made the wrong interpretation. Look at the image: the indication on the fishing ship is given at the bow. I admit that also the name is given, unlike most fishing vessels even in the same size. But categorising as you did now, the Category:Fishing vessels by license number does not show the license number any more. This is not correct. I made a mistake in the name, so a solution can be that I {badname} Category:CTA 382 Cap Metaplan (ship, 1925) and ask for Category:CTA 382 Cap Matapan (ship, 1925). And if you insist, categorise that category in Category:Fishing vessels by license number (will be in green) --Stunteltje (talk) 14:29, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

OK, I was not aware of the naming convention on Category:Fishing vessels by license number, was just following the one on Category:Ships. Go ahead and change it, but before you do, please check on the Cap Matapan vs. Cape Matapan as I am sure it should the the latter. --NJR_ZA (talk) 15:28, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
I am getting old, i think. You are right in the name again. So I intent to change to Category:CTA 382 Cape Matapan (ship, 1925) and give {badname} to the other categories. Correct? --Stunteltje (talk) 15:38, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that will work. --NJR_ZA (talk) 15:42, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
✓ Done But the name without license redirected. --Stunteltje (talk) 16:28, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Reef categories[edit]

Hi NJR ZA, I see you have categorised by reef. Are there any guidelines about where the lines should be drawn between reefs? How do you decide whether to group two sites on a contiguous reef or split them for categorisation? The dive site names are pretty arbitrary and follow usage rather than any rules. Is it the same for reef categories or should they be grouped together following some other logic? Cheers, · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 13:38, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Peter, there does not seem to be any guidelines at the current time. Category:Reefs is also still very sparely populated. I would suggest we just follow the usage as you have it at the moment per the dive sites just to get the ball rolling. Might also be a good idea to start a discussion in en:WikiProject Scuba diving for additional input. --NJR_ZA (talk) 13:56, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
We may as well go according to the site. It will usually take local knowledge to make a more useful distinction. In some cases I will recommend grouping a few close sites together, but this is usually done already in the site articles. Go ahead and create whatever looks good to you, I will suggest merging if it is ever necessary. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 16:30, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
It think this will be OK. If anyone later wants to add the larger geologically classified reefs (or however it is done with reefs) we can just make these smaller diving names for the reefs part of those categories. --NJR_ZA (talk) 18:44, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Translation request into Afrikaans[edit]

Hello NJR ZA, I hope you can help me translating three lines of text for me into Afrikaans? I am a member of the international team of Wiki Loves Monuments who takes care of the upload campaigns used with the picture contest Wiki Loves Monuments next month. We would like to enable as much as people as possible to participate in their own language, and for this we want to translate also the system messages in Afrikaans. Can you translate the following for me?

  1. Template:Upload campaign header Wiki Loves Monuments no contest (used above the upload wizard of a country which does not participate, not South Africa as that country does participate)
    • To translate: This country does not participate this year in Wiki Loves Monuments 2013.
    • To translate: You are welcome to upload pictures with this upload wizard, but they will not be part of the photo competition.
  2. For a label above a field where uploaders can enter the (unique) identifier (code) of a monument:
    • To translate: Monument ID

Thanks! I will read again here later or contact me on User talk:Romaine. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 14:35, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Done, Template:Upload campaign header Wiki Loves Monuments no contest/af
"Monument ID" is already valid Afrikaans. Monument is pronounced diffirently from English, but spelled the same. Identification is Identifikasie in Afrikaans and ID is a valid abbreviation.

Stellenbosch cats[edit]

Hi Nick :) Please let me know if I am not helping or doing something wrong. HelenOnline 12:37, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Helen, you are doing excellent work and I am glad to have you onboard. Not many people are willing to spend time on the donkey work of sorting out categories. Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Stellenbosch is looking brilliant :)
I have added all the Stellenbosch cats to Cultural heritage monuments in South Africa in addition to Cultural heritage monuments in Stellenbosch so that we can get a decent list at Category:Cultural heritage monuments in South Africa. Slowly busy working through the 1500 remaining images in that category to see if we can create categories for as many of them as possible. --NJR_ZA (talk) 13:24, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
Oh, almost forgot. Thanks for spotting the categories I created with spelling mistakes ) --NJR_ZA (talk) 15:00, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
No problem. I thought I had found all the uncategorized Stellenbosch images but I see you found a few more which I have categorized in SAHRA coded cats. HelenOnline 15:42, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

If you could let me know that would great.

Thanks.

Mark
