Panorami[edit]

Hallo Simisa. Könnte ich bitte wissen warum die Kategorien Panorami von Amalfi und Panorami von Assisi die in der korrekten Category:Panoramics in Italy sich befanden, du sie in die falsche Category:Cities in Italy versetzt hast? Die Kategorie Cities in Italy betrifft NUR Gemeinden (Comuni) von Italien (also in unserem Fall: Amalfi und Assisi), und nicht unter-Kategorien der Gemeinden. Die Panorami von XY sind schon in den Gemeinden XY korrekt (unter)kategorisiert. Also ich habe deine Aenderungen rückgängig gemacht. Sonst eine gute Arbeit wünscht dir --DenghiùComm (talk) 19:18, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Denghi! Panorama-Bilder sind Aufnahmen, welche normalerweise horizontal oder vertikal aus mehreren Bildern zusammengesetzt sind. Es gibt natürlich auch andere Techniken, um Panoramabilder zu erstellen. Grundsätzlich unterscheiden sie sich aber im Format von "gewöhnlichen" Aufnahmen. Alle diese Bilder sind in den Commons unter "Panoramics" zusammengefasst. In der Unterkategorie "Panoramics by country" sind für alle möglichen Länder weitere Unterkategorien "Panoramics in XY" angelegt. Sinn dieser Kategorien ist es, Panoramabilder, welche sich von den üblichen Formaten unterscheiden, aus jedem Land abzulegen. In den von Dir angeführten beiden Kategorien befinden sich vorwiegend oder ausschliesslich ganz normale Bilder, welche m.E. nicht in die Kategorie "Panoramics" oder eine der Unterkategorien gehören. Entweder sollten die "normalen" Bilder in eine andere Kategorie umgeteilt werden oder dann eben die ganze Kategorie aus den "Panoramics" genommen werden.
Ich habe auch den Inhalt der Kategorie "Panorams of Italy" nach "Panoramics in Italy" verschoben und einen Redirect-Vermerk auf der Seite angebracht. Leider wurde diese Änderung wieder von jemandem gelöscht und somit existieren jetzt wieder zwei Kategorien mit grundsätzlich dem gleichen Inhalt und Zweck. Das ist für die Systematik der Commons nicht sinnvoll und widerspricht auch der geläufigen Syntax für die Länderkategorien in den "Panoramics". Es wäre hilfreich für die Suche von Bildern, wenn hier eine gemeinsame Syntax zur Anwendung kommen könnte.
Ich wünsche Dir ebenfalls viel Spass an der Arbeit in den Commons! Simisa (talk) 13:39, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Ich verstehe was du meinst, aber es ging mir gar nicht um Panoramas und Panoramics, sondern um Cities in Italy, wo die Kategorie der Panoramas/Panoramics versetzt wurde, und wo sie absolut nicht hin gehört. Was dein Problem betrifft, ich glaube dass es an korrekte Information mangelt. Ich habe dasselbe Problem mit der Ornung (womit ich mich im Moment befasse) von Cities, Municipalities, Villages in Italy, in Province of, in Region of, und, und, und. etc. Ein totales Chaos! Weil nirgends geschrieben ist was man unter Cities, was unter Municipalities, was unter Villages zu verstehen muss. Nun mache ich ganz systematisch Ordnung, aber sehr bald werde ich in den betreffenden Haupt-Kategorien eine Einführung schreiben (auf en, it, fr, de) was da zu verstehen ist, was in die Kategorie hinein gehört und was nicht. Ich hab diese Einführungen schon geschrieben aber noch nicht eingesetzt weil die verschiedenen Texte auf den verschiedenen Sprachen noch nicht vollständig korrigiert sind. Ich glaube dass du auch sowas machen solltest: zuerst entscheiden was Panoramas oder Ansichten (oder wie du sie benennen willst), und was Panoramics sind; neue Kategorien machen wo sie fehlen oder mangelhaft sind; und dann im top der betreffenden Kategorien eine kurze Einführung in den verschiedenen Sprachen schreiben, in der du ganz genau erklärst um was es geht. Mach das! So wirst du und andere in Zukunft keine (oder weniger) Probleme haben! Herzlichst, --DenghiùComm (talk) 08:01, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Dams and reservoirs[edit]

Hi, just wondering what you thought of my category description at Category:Dams in Switzerland. As all reservoirs (which generally include a dam) are already listed in Category:Reservoirs in Switzerland, there isn't much use in including them in both categories. Some reservoirs have a lot of images, so it might be worth doing a category specifically for the dam.

BTW, I like your images. Interesting to categorize them. -- User:Docu at 16:31, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Please check my edits:
-- User:Docu at 16:42, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Hi Docu! Thanks for your comments and your great work with my pics. I have noticed that you have categorized many of them during the past couple of weeks. Thanks for that!
As far as the dams are concerned, my thinking was that there is a main cat "Dams by country" with hardly any entry in "Dams in Switzerland". As most of the dams in Switzerland are used to produce electricity, I guess they better fit in this cat than into "Reservoirs" which has in my opinion the meaning of storing drinking water. Therefore I have started to shift many of the pics in the cat "Dams in Switzerland" into appropriate subcategories in order to avoid that all pics of dams in Switzerland will be stored in the main cat. I stopped for now, please let's discuss. Cheers, Simisa (talk) 16:50, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
As many images in sub-categories of Category:Reservoirs in Switzerland are show dams, we could give this a try and eventually do specific subcategories for dams. Grande Dixence already splits the two, even though the other way round that I would generally do it (an exception as "Dix" is less known than "Dixence").
BTW According to the category description of Category:Reservoirs (current version), the scope of "reservoir" is larger ("artificial lakes", but not "cisterns", "water supply buildings", or "containers"). To some of extent, this matches the definition of en:reservoir ("a place or hollow vessel where fluid is kept in reserve, for later use. Most often, a reservoir refers to an artificial lake, used to store water for various uses"), but that could include natural lakes used that way. GNIS uses it as a feature class definition for the US: "artificially impounded body of water (lake, tank)". At en:Category:Reservoirs, some attempt to apply it to anything with a dam. For Swiss lakes, this might lead to Lake Lucerne being categorized as a "reservoir", because of its needle dam. ;) -- User:Docu at 11:52, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
BTW Category:Lac de Sanetsch and Category:Sanetsch dam are somewhat like what I have in mind (there aren't too many pictures though). -- User:Docu at 12:25, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Úlfljótsvatn, nicht Þingvallavatn[edit]

Servus Simisa, ich hab bei einigen deiner Bilder den Beschreibungstext geändert. Etwa bei File:Þingvallavatn Iceland 003.JPG: das Foto zeigt eindeutig den See de:Úlfljótsvatn und die Kirche der gleichnamigen Ortschaft. Der de:Þingvallavatn liegt unmittelbar nördlich dieses Sees.

Why?[edit]

[1]?--Darwinius (talk) 20:10, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Ahahahah, so that's what it is! I'm from Funchal myself, and I thought that the other place had some relation (theme park?) with my city, mainly due to the tourist plaque we can see in one of the photos. So it's a river, I presume that the name is a mere coincidence then. Thanks, --Darwinius (talk) 23:49, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Re: Madeira[edit]

Dear Simisa, it's me who have to thank you for sharing such beautiful images of my home island. I'm not there at the moment (will be in a few weeks), and your photos have contributed to appease my nostalgia. I see as well that many of your images have been nominated as quality images, it's great to have such quality works on the subject. I hope in the near future to use them at wiki-pt, as I'll resume the work on the Madeira articles there. Cheers, --Darwinius (talk) 08:04, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Roggenburg?[edit]

Hallo Simisa,

ist das links hinter der de:Insel Schwanau auf diesem Bild die Insel Roggenburg, oder ist das Festland? Falls ersters, was sind das für Gebäude auf der Insel Roggenburg? Ich schau gerade, ob genügend Material für einen eigenen Inselartikel zusammenkommt, nachdem es für Schwanau seit kurzem einen gibt. Gruß,--Ratzer1 (talk) 09:19, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Hallor Ratzer, das ist Festland! Sorry, kann Dir nicht helfen. Gruss Simisa (talk) 16:19, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Klar, dann ist das Foto vom Südufer aus aufgenommen. Denn vom Nordufer aus könnte man nicht links an der Insel vorbeisehen, ohne die kleinere Insel Roggenburg zu sehen. Aber noch eine Frage zum Foto der Insel Schwanau: Was ist das für ein Gebäude zwischen der Burgruine rechts und der St. Josefskapelle links (teils durch Gebüsch verdeckt). Das sieht fast aus wie ein altes Bauernhaus. Ein Museum vielleicht? Oder wohnt dort zeitweise oder dauernd jemand? Gruß,--Ratzer1 (talk) 20:02, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Ich befürchte, ich kann Dir hier nicht weiterhelfen! Ich habe nur auf einem Motorrad-Ausflug kurz angehalten an jener Stelle und ein paar Aufnahmen geschossen. Ich bin leider nicht ortskundig. Simisa (talk) 16:07, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Lightning Picture usage?[edit]

File:Lightning_14.07.2009_20-42-33.JPG

Hi, I've been looking at your "File:Lightning_14.07.2009_20-42-33.JPG" picture, and I would like to inquire about using it for a project I'm working on. With your permission, I would like to use a cropped version of the image as a background on a 2 x 6 inch bookmark. The bookmark would have Bible verse references on it. It would be sold inexpensively (and possibly used as a giveaway item) at the not-for-profit Bible College Bookstore that I volunteer at. I can give you more details and even a preview file if you would like.... Thanks so much for your time! Starg8sg1 (talk) 02:50, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi Starg8sg1, the picture is released the license indicated with the picture and may be used under those conditions. Simisa (talk) 17:00, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Simisa, Thank you so much for getting back to me! I can credit you on the image if you would like. (I'll put something silimar to "Lightning Image by:" on it.) Should I put "Simisa" or would you rather have your name on it instead? Thanks!! Starg8sg1 (talk) 22:29, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
Please put Simisa on it! Thanks, Simisa (talk) 12:40, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Kloster Sankt Katharinental[edit]

Hallo Simisa. Kannst du mir sagen, warum du die Aufnahmen vom Kloster Katharinenthal aus der *Category:Monasteries in the canton of Thurgau* entfernt hast? Wenn es heute auch kein Kloster mehr ist, so hat es doch die Geschichte eines Klosters und die typische Architektur, wie übrigens auch die meisten anderen "Klöster" in der Category. Ebenso verstehe ich nicht, warum man die Aufnahmen nicht in der Kategorie *Panoramics of the canton of Thurgau* lassen kann, zumal das Abgebildetet ja auf Thurgauer Boden steht (und das Format m.E. für die Einordungung so ziemlich wurst ist). Gerne erfahre ich dein Gründe.--Pingelig (talk) 12:38, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Pingelig. Die Nennung des Bildes in der Kategorie "Monasteries in the canton of Thurgau" und in der Kategorie "Kloster Sankt Katharinental" entspricht einer Doppelnennung, da "Kloster Sankt Katharinental" bereits eine Unterkategorie von "Monasteries in the canton of Thurgau" ist. Solche Doppel- oder Mehrfachnennungen in der gleichen Struktur sind in den Commons nicht erwünscht. Gemäss den Richtlinien auf Commons soll zudem immer der Aufnahmeort und nicht der Ort des Subjekts angegeben werden. Und das ist in diesem Fall eben Gailingen in Deutschland. Simisa (talk) 12:54, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Du hast Recht, was den Aufnahmeort angeht und theoretisch natürlich auch mit der "Doppelnennung". Allerdings ist die Doppelnennung ja nur ein Problem in grossen und dadurch unübersichtlichen Kategorien. *Monasteries in ...Thurgau* ist eine kleine und sehr übersichtliche Kategorie und wird es wohl auch bleiben, da es so viele Klöster ja nun auch wieder nicht im Thurgau gibt. Ich finde es praktisch, in einer solch kleinen Kategorie eine Schnellübersicht mit Beispielbildern zu haben, um dann in der entsprechenden Unterkategorie ein passendes Bild zu suchen. Natürlich könnte man zu diesem Zweck auch eine Bildgalerie anlegen, aber in einer kleinen Kategorie scheint mir dieser Aufwand übertrieben, wenn man dem Zweck viel einfacher entsprechen kann. Liege ich da so falsch?--Pingelig (talk) 13:45, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Durch die Mehrfachnennung eines Bildes in der gleichen Kategorien-Hierarchie geht eben auch die Übersichtlichkeit verloren. Stell Dir nur einmal vor, das gleiche Bild würde auch noch in "Buildings in the canton of Thurgau", "Canton of Thurgau" und zuletzt noch "Switzerland" eingereiht. Alle Kategorien wären grundsätzlich korrekt. Aber damit würde die Übersichtlichkeit der höher gestellten Hierarchieknoten vollkommen verloren gehen. Deshalb sollte die Nennung nur einmal in einem Hierarchiestrang erfolgen. Simisa (talk) 15:41, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Was die grossen Kategorien (die du als Beispiele anführst) angeht, sehe ich das ja ein. Aber wir sprechen hier von einer kleinen Unterkategorie.--Pingelig (talk) 15:51, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Märstetten/Tägerwilen[edit]

So liest man sich wieder. O.k., das Photo ist also vom Luftgebiet über Tägerwilen her aufgenommen worden (gilt die Von-wo-aus-aufgenommen-Regel wirklich auch bei Luftaufnahmen?! Vom eigentlichen Tägerwilen aus würde man das Abgebildete auf keinen Fall sehen). Auf jeden Fall ist das Dorf, welches abgebildet ist, nicht Tägerwilen sondern Märstetten.(Praktisch) jeder, der das Bild in der Kategorie findet, wird denken, das abgebildete Dorf sei Tägerwilen, es sei denn, er kennt sich genügend gut aus, um zu merken, dass das nicht sein kann. Es sollte wenigstens in der Beschreibung vermerkt sein, dass das abgebildete Dorf Märstetten ist. Und meiner Ansicht nach sollte eine Luftaufnahme von einem Dorf (egal von wo aus aufgenommen, Zürich, Zeppelin, Orbit, Mond, etc.) in dessen Kategorie eingereiht sein. Ist doch Schade um dein Foto, wenn es in der Kategorie "Tägerwilen" rumdümpelt, wo niemand was damit anfangen kann. Beste Grüsse --Pingelig (talk) 13:02, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

    • Hallo Pingelig! Ich weiss, Du schätzt diese Regel nicht. Der Aufnahmestandort (oder sollte man hier sagen Aufnahmeflugort?) liegt auf dem Gebiet der Gemeinde Tägerwilen. Aber man kann das Problemchen ganz einfach lösen, indem man den Infotext ändert, z.B. auf "Märstetten from overhead Tägerwilen". Dass man die Kategorie "Märstetten" ebenfalls noch dazufügt, ist m.E. kein Problem. Ich werde das Bild 'mal so anpassen. Im übrigen danke ich Dir für die aufmerksame Durchsicht meiner Bilder.

Please give uploaded images meaningful names. Otherwise they are difficult to track and it is hard to tell what the image is about without actually looking at it. I suggest you rename your image with an intuitive name that describes the image itself. Thanks, and happy editing!

Hallo Simisa,
Ich habe bei Deinem Bild am Text geabeitet und Links angefügt.
Beim Betrachten des Bildes ist mir der Mitteleinstiegwagen hinter dem ABe 8/12 aufgefallen, der eigentlich auf der Berninabahn nichts zu suchen hat. Ich habe dazu eine Note hinzugefügt. Kannst Du bestätigen, ob mein Note-Text OK ist, ich habe nämlich den Fahrplan durchgewühlt und nichts von einem regulären Einsatz – als "Velowagen"? – gesehen.
Herzliche Grüsse --Lord Koxinga (talk) 13:44, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Hallo Lord Koxinga, besten Dank für Deine Anmerkung. Die Anmerkung ist ok., wie sind am Abend sogar im Velowagen von der Station Morteratsch bis nach Pontresina mitgefahren. Ich vermute, dass der Wagen wegen des grossen Andrangs beigestellt wurde. Gruss Simisa (talk) 21:43, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
Hallo Simisa,
Danke für Deine schnelle Antwort.
Sie hat gezeigt, dass ich das richtig wahrgenommen habe.
Ich habe aber trotzdem noch eine Anpassung vorgenommen. Mitteleinstiegswagen ist zwar sicher korrekt, aber ich denke, es ist ein SIG-Leichtstahlwagen für die Rhätische Bahn und nicht ein SWS-Leichtstahlwagen für die Rhätische Bahn.
Mea Culpa und Herzliche Grüsse --Lord Koxinga (talk) 14:00, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Fuerteventura[edit]

Hallo Simisa, könntest Du bei Deinen Bildern aus Fuerteventura bitte auch die Ortschaften (Category:Municipalities in Fuerteventura) kategorisieren? Das würde mir beim Aufräumen eine Menge Arbeit ersparen und Du weißt ja sowieso besser als ich, wo genau Du warst. Gruß, -- Ies (talk) 11:31, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Hallo les! Mache ich eigentlich meist. Ich lege aber nicht alle Ortschaften neue an, wenn man sie auf den Bildern nicht sieht. Ich habe mir auch einige Zeit genommen, um in die Kategorie Fuerteventura Strukturen einzubringen. Aber optimal ist es noch nicht. Ich werde aber die Ortschaften so viel wie möglich angeben auf den nächsten Uploads. Gruss -- Simisa (talk) 12:09, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Category:Panoramics in Baden-Württemberg[edit]

Es wäre schon noch gut, wenn du eine solche Kategorie erst dann einfügst, wenn du sicher bist, dass das entsprechende Bild aus Baden-Württemberg ist. Meines Wissens gehört der Aargau nach wie vor zur Schweiz ;-) (z.B. hier und hier) -- Badener  08:52, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Hallo Badener, es wäre auch gut, wenn Du Dich an die Regeln hältst und dass Bild dort kategorisierst, wo es gemacht worden ist. Deshalb heissen die Kategorien auch "Panoramics in ..." und nicht "Panoramics of ...". Es besteht immer noch die Möglichkeit, einzelne Komponenten des Bildes mit Beschriftungsfeldern zu versehen oder zu kategoriesieren, wie z.B. mit "Lägern". Die Küssaburg liegt m.W. in Baden-Württemberg und daher ist die Kategorie "Panoramics in Baden-Württemberg" korrekt. Zudem gibt es in der Kategorie "Panoramics in Switzerland" für jeden Kanton eine Unter-Kategorie. Wenn alle Panoramabilder der Schweiz in einer Kategorie abgelegt werden, dann haben wir in kürzester Zeit ein Chaos. Gruss, -- Simisa (talk) 14:34, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay, sorry, bei der Lägern habe ich einen Fehler gemacht. Aber Tegerfelden habe ich wirklich im Aargau fotografiert ;-) -- Badener  20:37, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Kein Problem, ich versuche nur, die Hauptkategorie sauber zu halten. Beim Bild in Tegerfelden habe ich Deinen ungefähren Standort a.G. von Google Earth zu erahnen versucht und habe angenommen, dass Du über den Rhein fotografiert hast. ;-) -- Simisa (talk) 23:14, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:2010-10-21_13-12-21_-_Malawi_-_Njolomole.JPG. I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

http://www.freeenglishsite.com/

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

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

Bilder Luzern[edit]

Hallo Roland Du hast viele meine Bilder von Luzern in den Ordner "Unidentified locations of Lucerne" verschoben. Das verstehe ich nicht ganz, da alle Bilder 'geotagged' sind und der Aufnahmeort daher sehr genau ersehen werden kann. Gruss Simisa (talk) 21:15, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

[quotation end]
Hallo Simisa, richtig, gleichzeitig aber auch eine deutlich grössere Anzahl Uploads exakter kategorierisiert als 'nur' Category:Lucerne ;-)
In der "Hauptkategorie" waren viele der Bilder m.E. 'falsch' platziert respective (einige wenige auch von Dir) gleichzeitig bereits mit einer 'passenderen' Unter-Kategorie versehen.
Persönlich kenne ich mich in Luzern zwar es bizzeli aus, sprich habe gleichzeitig einige Dutzend Bilder 'passender' kategorisiert, aber viele 'Gebäude/Monumente' kann ich nicht exakt zuordnen.
So Du's mittels geotag kannst, dann Dankeschön für exaktere Kategorisierung, ansonsten wird das sicherlich jemand 'Ortskundiger' (irgendwann)vornehmen.
'Zwischenlösung': Mittels dem absolut genialen Tool HotCat mit einem Mausclick die Grosse Mehrheit nach "Buildings in ..." verschieben, was mE aber eine spätere Fein-Kategorisierung nicht vereinfacht.
Liebe Grüsse, Roland 21:27, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
Hallo Roland, ich kenne mich leider auch nicht so gut aus in Luzern und ich hoffe, dass sich jemand findet für die Feinkategorisierung. Mir ist die Sache nicht so wichtig. LG Simisa (talk) 19:15, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Salü Simisa, dankeschön, einige konnte ich noch vage (=Reuss in Luzern) kategoririseren, und ja, mit der Zeit wird sich sicher ein/e ExpertIn für Luzern noch Deiner Bilder annehmen :-) Liebe Grüsse, Roland 20:37, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Hallo Herr Krapf,

ich bin auf Ihre exzellenten aerial-images zur Oberen Donau (Schloss Bronnen) von 2005/6 in den commons categories gestoßen. Da ich zur Geologie der Schwäbischen Alb Texte und images in wiki(p/m)edia.org publiziere und da Sie in Ihrem commons User:Simisa schreiben

"...please do not hesitate to contact me for a full resolution version. I am pleased to share them."

wollte ich anfragen, ob Sie noch Fotos von der Donau um das Schloss Bronnen haben, die ich bisher nicht gefunden habe, mir aber von Ihnen vorstellen kann....

Hier ihr Foto, welches die Schüssel ansatzweise zeigt:

Panoramas Iceland[edit]

Hello Hanuseli, within a project of introducing new page banners at Wikivoage (Wikivoyage:Banner_Expedition), I have used your pretty panoramas (see VW: Iceland, VW: Route_1-Ring_Road). I used your original files and cropped them to 7:1 ratio and saved in a designated destination http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikivoyage_banners_of_Iceland in a reduced resolution. I hope I used your pictures correctly and you agree with using these and perhaps other pictures of yours for wikivoyage. --Danapit (talk) 09:58, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

profile for Wikimedia blog?[edit]

Hi Hansueli, my name is Matthew and I work on the Communications team with the Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco. We have a feature on the Foundation blog where we profile the photographers behind the beautiful photos that become Picture of the Day (POTD) on the Commons home page. You can see some of our past POTD posts here: https://blog.wikimedia.org/c/communications/picture-of-the-day/

Given that one of your photos is scheduled for 15 May 2013, I'd love to do a short interview with you by email to discuss your work and your POTD. Please let me know if you think you'd be interested!

Thanks, Matthew (WMF) (talk) 00:40, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Hallo Simisa, das Bild ist ja schon mal bei den Featured pictures durchgefallen, weil einige Juroren sich keinen enzyklopädischen Wert vorstellen konnten. Für mich illustriert es am ehesten eine bestimmte sommerliche Wolkenbildung. Um das enzyklopädisch zu verwerten, müsste man zunächst den Wolkentypus herausfinden und das Bild dort einordnen. Vielleicht irgendwo unter Category:Cumulus clouds (siehe auch Cumulus), vielleicht ist es auch eine Cumulonimbuswolke in der Entstehung. Bei der genauen Bestimmung kann ich allerdings nicht helfen.

Permission to Use Image for Documentary[edit]

Dear Simisa,

I've had the good fortune of coming across one of your amazing photos - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Kenya_Aerial_2009-08-27_14-27-32.JPG

I work at a production house and we would like to use one of your photos for an international documentary.

I'll like to ensure we credit you properly. As such, would it be possible for you to email me at charlene.chan@infocusasia.com so that I may be able to tell you more about our project and gain your permission to use the photo?

Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!


MH370 / 9M-MRO Airliner Permission and Backstory Request[edit]

Hello Simisa-

I hope this finds you well,

I've been in touch with many other Planespotters in regards to the Flight 370 story and I would love to feature yours. It's incredible that you were able to capture this aircraft back in 2011 given it's story in modern aviation history.

I wanted to get your feelings about the image you took of the Malaysia Airlines missing airliner. Was there any back story to the image and when you took it? Emotions felt when you heard the news?

I'd like to feature your story and image along with other assembled 9M-MRO photographer stories on my blog. This project is a non-profit storytelling tribute on behalf of this unfolding story. All images would be credited back to you and collections.

I've already heard from Austria, Istanbul, Frankfurt, Rome to Los Angeles

South Africa would be a wonderful addition. Thanks, I hope to hear from you.

I can be reached at michael_raisch@yahoo.com

My photo and history work is available at www.raischstudios.org

Category:Elephants of Kruger National Park[edit]

There is no need for an additional category definig the elephant species as in Kruger National Park you only find Loxodonta africana, and if you follow the categoy tree (Category:Elephants of Kruger National Park --> Category:Elephants of South Africa --> Category:Loxodonta africana by location) , it will lead to the correct species --Kersti (talk) 21:54, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
