Thanks for that smile...[edit]

Hola Slaunger, how are things? Hope all well... Thanks for that smile... I changed the text because of your comment a few weeks ago... I had in the back of my mind that I had to make sure my page did not feel as having a commercial angle. But let me ask you something... How you noticed so quickly??? I did not mention you... Best, --Arturo de Frias Marques (talk)

Bonsoir Arturo de Frias Marques
Sorry for the French greetings, but I am in Lille these daysSmile. Soy muy bien, gracias! I am glad you appreciated the smile. The reason why I noticed so fast is because I have edited your talk page, and then I have setup my preferences such that every page I edit is automatically added to my Watchlist. So when I saw you changing your user page on my Watchlist, I got curious to see what changes you had made, remembering our old commercialization discussion. And then I was glad to see that. 1. You now had a few FPs, and 2. You tweaked the formulation to emphasize that the referenced web pages were not intended as commercial advertising pages:)

one of the best pictures I have ever seen. Sehr schön! (Orientalist in der de:WP)


Thanks Slaunger, you were right, I thought the more categories the better... a steep learning curve indeed...

Arturo de Frias Marques No problem. You are not the first having misunderstood this initially, and I am sure you will not be the last either Smile. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:31, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Commons bot inactivity[edit]

Hello! Your bot User:SlaungerBot has been listed at Commons:Bots/Requests/de-flag_3 as being inactive for over two years. As a housekeeping measure we'd like to remove the bot flag from inactive bot accounts, unless you expect the bot will be operated again in the near future. If you consent to the removal of the bot flag (or do not reply on the deflag page) you can rerequest the bot flag at Commons:Bots/Requests should you need it again. --Dschwen (talk) 19:56, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

WLM 2014 in Spain[edit]

Hi Slaunger,

Did you notice this ?. We both have pictures in the top 100 !--Jebulon (talk) 10:36, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jebulon,
Yes, thanks to your nice tripod, and I did notice more that a week ago. You have several in the competition left. Not bad, considering there were more than 23000 nominated photos in Spain! Good luck getting in top 10 too! -- Slaunger (talk) 16:33, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Well, I hope they will change their choice for the good one (but I did as they did: I just noticed the thumbnail...)--Jebulon (talk) 18:13, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Slaunger, never mind the thumbnail size: both your panoramas look excellent filling my 2560x1440 display. Even the blurry one when reduced to 33% is over twice the width of my monitor and lovely and sharp. If printed at 240dpi, it would make an excellent poster of high quality. I wish the same could be said for many other WLM winners. I do wonder if, when the judging is over, you would consider downsizing the blurry one to a sharp size -- that way I think it would be much more likely to be reused, which is the point (and the original is retained in the history, should anyone need it). -- Colin (talk) 20:00, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Colin: I made a 10 Mpixel downsampled version long ago already, linked as "other version". Anyway, thanks for your appraisal. Appreciated! -- Slaunger (talk) 20:10, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Jebulon, which image(s) of yours made the top 100? -- Colin (talk) 20:01, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Jebulons works are easy to spot, if you know his style -- Slaunger (talk) 20:16, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Wow ! So biiig ? Anyway, happy to know I have my own "style" ! 🎨+📷=🏆. I'm an artist !--Jebulon (talk) 20:42, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Jebulon: I also cheated a bit, to be honest. The door was not so distict "Jebulon"ish, I think (I did not catch by-eye on the thumb that was yours at least). Instead, I used the slideshow gadget to rapidly sift through all 100 and find your contributions among them Clin. But yes, I think you have a distinct meticulous high quality style, which suits very well the type of photos which are most useful on Commons. -- Slaunger (talk) 22:29, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Jebulon: Game over. Insert coin! Better luck next year.. Poco a poco won. In our hearts, we knew he was both better and a more hard working than us, didn't weSmile? Congratz to him and the other WLM 2014 winners! -- Slaunger (talk) 20:39, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes. But now, thanks to you, I know that I have a style 💪!--Jebulon (talk) 23:39, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
