tarantula pages[edit]

Hi Sarefo.. i am sorry if i did the spider pages wrong.. could you tell me how to create a page as a gallery page.. the only way i have figured out how to start a category page is by linking a photo to that category name and it will create it.. but if i just want to make a gallery page and not category, how would i do that?

Thanks for you help. --Ltshears 00:51, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Sorting[edit]

OK, I havn't notice that. Sorry, my mistake :) Radomil talk 23:52, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Unknown xxx pages[edit]

Moin Sarefo, ich wollte dich mal fragen, ob aus deiner Sicht etwas dagegen spricht, die von dir angelegten Galerie Seiten in Kategorie Seiten umzuwandeln (bzw. neu anzulegen, da umwandeln nicht möglich ist). Ich habe beim Sortieren gemerkt, dass es schneller geht, da nur das Medienfile angefaßt werden muss und nicht noch ein Artikel. Viele Grüße, --Olei 14:37, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

mosses[edit]

Hello. Are you sure that Image:Pleurozium.schreberi.jpg does not show Hypnum cupressiforme s.l.? Please check the other photos of P. schreberi too. The current name of Polytrichastrum formosum is Polytrichum formosum. The Polytrichastrum-taxon was originally described by Smith in New York Bot. Garden 21 1971 and Hattori in Bot. Lab 38 1974. Pseudoscleropodium purum currently has the name Scleropodium purum. Newer findings show that both genus are closely related. Greetings. Fabelfroh 09:05, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Pocellio scaber by J.Lindsey[edit]

Hi Sarefo, please note that I have updated the description of Image:Porcellio.scaber.jpg with species info determining the animal as Oniscus asellus. If at all posible it would be good if you could upload the pic under a correct filename ;o)

Btw I have, of course, sent James Lindsey an e-mail about this and he agrees he might well have stuck a wrong label on the animal in the first place and will update his website too. Cheers! Pudding4brains 11:44, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the corrections! :o) Pudding4brains 13:15, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I haven't deleted this picture -- it was Bryan who's done that and I think you should request him for undeletion of this picture. /odder 15:40, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Spider distribution maps[edit]

Hi Sarefo - nice work! I don't know a lot about spider distributions, but do know that spiders don't occur on permanent ice (!!) - so I've greyed out central Greenland on all the maps where they had been shown as present (I left the ice-free coastal margin as green) - MPF 21:52, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Geocoding quality[edit]

Hi! Could you put a few words on Commons talk:Geocoding#Quality regarding Category:Pictures by James Lindsey? Thanks. --Para 13:59, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Correction to Image:Distribution.libocedrus.png[edit]

Hi Sarefo, just to let you know I edited this image because the distribution of Libocedrus is New Caledonia and New Zealand. Your original version of the image had New Guinea and New Caledonia in green, and New Zealand unmarked. Cheers and thanks for your work Kahuroa 23:36, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the correction! I must have switched the two, i was working too fast :) --Sarefo 09:50, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Spider ?[edit]

Hello Sarefo,

first, many thanks for your amawing images of Salticidae, I also encourage you to submit this image in the Commons:Featured picture candidates page.

For the categorization, I think image themselves should be categorized as [[Category:Salticidae]]. -- Yug 17:36, 17 May 2007

Ants and Centipedes[edit]

Hello Sarefo,

thank you for the given Informations. Sometimes for me its difficult to categorize some Species. I promise that i´ll work on it. Here are some new Pictures which i cannot propper categorize. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Myriapoda

Myriapoda Millipede Tausendfuesser.jpg

and 2 other versions

All the best --Makro Freak 18:01, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

these critters are called 'millipedes'; centipedes have only one pair of legs per segment (millipedes have four). how big was this specimen roughly? cheers --Sarefo 00:04, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

aprox 30mm --Makro Freak 17:18, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Image:World.distribution.testudines.1.png[edit]

Hi Sarefo - I've revised your map Image:World.distribution.testudines.1.png, which was very inaccurate for Europe (extending far too far north! - none native in Britain or Scandinavia for definite, and other northern European localities are probably escapes from captivity); for reference I used the species maps in cheloniophilie.com, but you might want to check it over. Maybe the rest should be checked? - if the original source Cogger & Zweifel 1998 is so inaccurate for Europe, it may be suspect for other regions too! - MPF 15:18, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

hi; could be that these inaccuracies are my fault. the maps in the book use a different transformation from the map i used, and i had some difficulty transferring them. i only made the maps because i thought it was better than nothing. if you have the sources and ability, do make better maps :) as a matter of fact, i mostly stopped transferring maps for this reason, that i could not invest enough time to make them 100% correct. --Sarefo 20:33, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! - MPF 21:25, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

2 unidentified photos[edit]

Greetings Sarefo. I'm pretty confident that the images Image:Pogonatum.urnigerum.jpg and Image:Pogonatum.urnigerum.2.jpg do not show Pogonatum urnigerum but a Dicranum instead. I removed the photos from the site Pogonatum urnigerum and added them to the Category:Unidentified_Bryophyta. Fabelfroh 15:10, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

thanks! the author says he already changed it on his site a while ago, it's a Dicranum scoparium. --Sarefo 08:49, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Nice job[edit]

Hi, yes, I have created some pages for your images. I will do more if I have time. Thanks for uploading so many nice images. Frédéric 08:13, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

More info would be useful[edit]

Hi Sarefo,

If possible, it would be nice to have the collector name, location, date and museum accession numbers along with the specimen photos you are adding. I know the overhead but it definitely becomes far more useful that way. Best wishes. Shyamal 06:47, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Cogomelos in Galicia[edit]

Hi. (Pardon, my english is too bad) I think that it's interesting: A good description of a region, without pages about its products or nature, is not possible. Please, see Category:Nature of Galicia (Spain).

You failed to create the subpage Commons:Deletion requests/Cogomelos in Galicia. Could you delete this tag ({{delete}}) or create the discussion? Thanks--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 17:50, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

you're right, i was mainly objecting to the title. moved to Fungi of Galicia (Spain). --Sarefo 22:00, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
  • I don't understand. Titles of articles may be named in any language; however, names should consist of ASCII characters only. Is not the galician language a language respectable? Greetings. Moved to Cogomelos de Galicia. Greetings (05:52, 29 December 2007 Lmbuga)
no, the problem is not the respectability of the Galician language (which is probably beautiful :). the problem is that people trying to use the commons don't speak it for the most part. english is the lingua franca of today, and it's the best way that all people, be they from Galicia, Germany, Japan or Ireland, know what on earth the page is all about. so while i won't revert your reversion, i do object to it, it's not really helping in making these pictures accessible to most people. and what's more, Fungi is the scientific term for cogomelos, so this is an international convention too, and has nothing to do with language preferences. cheers --Sarefo 13:08, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Spiders[edit]

Thank you for taking the time to write to someone about the photo! I was wondering if you could identify, or have someone identify, this one: Image:Unidentified black and yellow spider.jpg. I had actually linked to it on IRC the other day, but you must have missed it (it was in the same line as the link to the photo of the wolf spider). It was this one I was referring to as « the spawn of Shelob » (I would have said « spawn of Ungoliant », but that's taking it a little too far. :-p Thanks again and happy new year, Arria Belli | parlami 10:54, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

oh, yes i missed that one. i thought you were referring to this cutie here ;) the black+yellow one is an Argiope species. actually i came across this picture a week or so ago, i thought i had already categorized it. couldn't find out the species though, there are 76 species, most don't have a picture, and the pic doesn't say where the spider was found. --Sarefo 19:42, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
