Categories[edit]

Hi Si Griffiths, please categorize MUCH more exact! Keep in mind that only well categorized images can be found by other users. Some examples:

File:Vending Machine UK.jpg: Category:Vending machines by country is simply nonsense. If in the UK Category:Vending machines in the United Kingdom and Category:Food vending machines are much better.

Please urgently read Commons:Categories to avoid more mistakes! Greetings, -- Ies (talk) 14:59, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Categories again[edit]

Hi Si Griffiths, to avoid more mistakes like Category:Orchid and Category:Flowering plants in case of File:Orchid Flowering 2 At RHS Wisley Surrey UK.jpg please FIRST look for the appropriate categories for your images. Look into each category to see whether or not your image is actually in line with its content! Then upload you image with the correct categories. Btw. the category for unidentified Orchidaceae is Category:Unidentified Orchidaceae. -- Ies (talk) 09:31, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Project scope[edit]

Hi Si Griffiths, please don't upload images that are out of project scope like File:Pins Adapted With Photoshop. Surrey UK.jpg and File:Windshield Wipers Modified With Photoshop. Surrey UK.jpg. Keep in mind that contributed images must be realistically useful for an educational purpose. -- Ies (talk) 11:32, 3 February 2013 (UTC)


Category:Surfaces[edit]

Hi Si Griffiths, obviously you didn't check this category's content and meaning. As long as people can't see x-rays to look into object they always see surfaces. Therefore it's simply nonsense to use Category:Surfaces for what object surface ever. -- Ies (talk) 13:04, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Notification about possible deletion[edit]

Hi,

Just a brief note to clarify the boilerplate below- although most of your images appear to be original photos taken by yourself, a significant number appear to be reproductions of published artwork which- I'm assuming on the law of probability- you didn't create. Although some of these are quite old and a few may be edging towards the expiry of copyright due to age, this isn't at all clear.

If the images are still within their copyright period, and have not been licensed by the copyright holders, then they are copyright violations and we cannot use them. If there is serious doubt as to their suitability due to lack of information and incorrect licensing (e.g. claiming as "own work" when they aren't, not having publication date or origin) then we can't take a chance.

(Please note also that a straightforward scan or rephotographing of a copyrighted work doesn't "erase" any existing copyright- it's still owned by the copyright holder in the original image).

Sorry if this is unclear and annoying, as you appear to have uploaded quite a lot of useful images- however, we do need to be clear that these are freely and legitimately usable, otherwise Commons cannot host them. Thank you for your understanding. Ubcule (talk) 21:46, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
