Datebox[edit]

Hello Paul,

A datebox is an excellent idea, although I think it would make a lot more sense on Commons:Picture of the day and Commons:Media of the day. Truly, as opposed to Wikinews, we have much less time-sensitive info, and while frequent editors might appreciate a reminder of what the time is, casual browsers could care less. Besides, chances are that experienced editors have other ways of keeping the time. As for the date, it is listed twice on the main page, specifically below Picture of the Day and Media of the Day... which makes me think that those places could use a datebox. Don't know so much about the Main Page, though :)

An added thought: another pitfall of the datebox is that the page is squid cached when it is generated, and the datetime is cached into it. This cached page is sent to all users unless it's purged or edited. Which means not even a client-side cache wipe could refresh the date, but only an "?action=purge" command sent to the server. I don't want to sound like I'm opposing everything that is new and great, but the datebox might not be so efficient after all. Thanks for your understanding. —UED77 01:01, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

By the way, keep up the great work with the Image classification system. Be sure to move it into the Commons: namespace when it's done! (Or I'll move it for you.) —UED77 00:56, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, Paul, but I see through your contribs that you are active, but have not responded. I'm going to remove the datebox for the aforementioned reasons. Thank you for your understanding. —UED77 13:04, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

BadJPEG tag on Image:Florida Ave (Washington DC).JPG[edit]

Hello, Rfc1394. I have restored the {{badJPEG}} tag on Image:Florida Ave (Washington DC).JPG. First, it seems odd to me that the PNG version of this image would be larger, unless you are trying to convert the JPEG into a PNG (which will not solve the fundamental problem). But the primary reason I restored the tag is that the size of the file is not the most important consideration. Images that use JPEG compression suffer from compression artifacts, and these artifacts will get progressively worse if the image is modified and resaved as a JPEG. The PNG format does not have this problem. The quality of an image is maintained when an image is saved as a PNG, but JPEG compression reduces image quality. For these reasons it would be better to have a PNG version of this map, even if the file size is somewhat larger than the JPEG version. (Also, there are ways to reduce the file size of a PNG image without losing any image quality, whereas reducing the file size of a JPEG image always results in a lower-quality image.) If you have any questions, please let me know. —Bkell (talk) 19:23, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Commons:Image classification system[edit]

Please do not implement this on a wide scale (a few examples to demonstrate it are OK - but please indicate that it is experimental) until it has demonstrated community approval. This would be a major change and should not be implemented by stealth.

Hello Rfc1394,

the following content you uploaded is not free and therefore had to be deleted:


The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:

  • use in any work, regardless of content

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on the Wikimedia Commons. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on the Wikimedia Commons: "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how the Wikimedia Commons works.

Image:I 35W Bridge.svg[edit]

Hi,

Could you please clarify the copyright on Image:I 35W Bridge.svg? Who is that telephone company? Did they release it under the GFDL/CC licenses? I don't get it.

Thanks! Kmccoy (talk) (en) (en:talk) 22:13, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

I was about to ask the same. --NE2 22:14, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing the link. :) Kmccoy (talk) (en) (en:talk) 22:25, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

My name is Paul Robinson. The telephone company listed is 'Robinson Telephone Company of the National Capital Area'. So, perhaps now, you can guess where the name came from. It is incorporated in Virginia (corporations are cheaper than LLCs). I am in charge of the company (it's now a non-stock corporation, which means it has no 'owners', however I happen to be both General Manager AND the only member of the Board of Directors). I release all my maps under the company name (for legal and technical reasons). So it is reasonable for me to say it is my own work, since I am the person who created the map even though it is owned by the company, e.g. in a form of 'work for hire' if you will. If you notice on the image, there is a logo that specifically says it was released under both licenses (which is why I put it there). Rfc1394 09:33, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Watermark != copyright. By releasing your image under those licenses you allow it to be freely edited, which includes removing watermarks. The image is still under copyright, it is just not watermarked on the image. If you read wikipedia's image use policy it specifically states images should not be watermarked. "Also, user-created images may not be watermarked, distorted, have any credits in the image itself or anything else that would hamper their free use, unless, of course, the image is intended to demonstrate watermarking, distortion etc. and is used in the related article. All photo credit should be in a summary on the image description page." -Ravedave 14:27, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Hi Rfc1394, I made a change to the picture because Google Map shows that 4th street (the bottom crossing of 35W in this picture) actually passes under the freeway. I haven't upload it yet, since I want to get your opinion first. If you agree, I will upload a new version of the file. Thanks. Chrishomingtang 17:57, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Actually when I upload it, there is something wrong with the file. So I revert it. Chris! my talk 19:11, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Nelson_River_Bipole_HVDC_Anchor_Pylon.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}} to release it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you. Siebrand 16:50, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

This image appears to be damaged. It's over a year old, so I don't remember what it was from. I can't see the image so I can't determine if it's one of mine, or something I have permission for, or it may very well be from a public domain source like a U.S. Government agency. Since I can't see the image it's really not fixable, so it may be deleted at any time. I have changed the message on the image to mark it for deletion. Rfc1394 22:17, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Nuvola[edit]

Hi there, I've noticed a lot of the images you made, you uploaded with "Nuvola" as part of the name. These image don't really have anything to do with the Nuvola icon set originally designed by David Vignoni. I'm aware of the current effort to expand this icon set with projects like Commons:Project Nuvola 2.0+, but unless I'm terribly mistaken, I thought the goal was to make new icons with the Nuvola style. To quote the project's description page: "WikiProject Nuvola 2.0+ is a project to make new icons that will fit stylistically into David Vignoni’s Nuvola icon set" Your contributions, while greatly appreciated, do not really belong in this collection, and by naming them "Nuvola", you may be confusing and/or misleading people on what Nuvola means. To help illustrate what I mean, here's three "nuvola" icons you made and three original Nuvola icons.

Nuvola dryer.svg Nuvola recliner.svg Corn flakes box.svg Nuvola apps edu science.png Nuvola apps atlantik.png Nuvola apps filetypes.png

As you can see, these two styles have nothing to do with each other. I mean, you have every right to name them what you want, but maybe you can explain to me why you are using "Nuvola" in your names and why you are adding them to the project's page. Thanks. Rocket000 19:50, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Rfc1394!

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.

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

New York State Area Codes map[edit]

Hello, Just wanted to mention that there's an error on the current version of the New York Area Codes map, namely in the display of the area codes in New Jersey. Area code 201/551 is directly adjacent to 212, not 973/862. So they need to be switched. Oknazevad (talk) 14:50, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Following up, while fixing the NJ area codes on a couple of the maps, I noticed a severe error on all of them highlighted on the 516 map. Area Code 516 covers Nassau County ONLY, and is not the area code for Westchester county. All of the maps are incorrect and need to be fixed. Oknazevad (talk) 16:57, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
I just uploaded a new version of the master NY map that I think takes care of this. Also see the talk page. Thanks! --Arg342 (talk) 12:00, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Collective Security Treaty Organization Map on Warsaw Pact page[edit]

I looked over the most updated map of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), which is Russia's military alliance and successor of sorts to the former Soviet era Warsaw Pact military alliance from the Cold War era. The map entails that all of the CSTO countries are in orange and the NATO countries are in blue. The current CSTO countries consist of: Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Both Serbia and Afghanistan were given CSTO observer status as of April, 2013. However, for the purpose of the CSTO map that is presently on the Warsaw Pact page, it shows that Belarus is not highlighted in orange, when it should be. Belarus is still have active participant of CSTO and has not left the military alliance. The most recent country that suspended its membership was Uzbekistan. Hope this helps clarify the current CSTO alliance.

Thanks for uploading File:ICS010107.PNG. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.)
