Sabbath[edit]

One isn't even allowed to write a comment to you on the Sabbath? I wasn't aware that other non-Jews' actions could influence your adherence to the rules of the Sabbath? Diliff (talk) 16:14, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

It is more appliable to Jews, as one is not allowed to get enjoyment/pleasure or profit from another Jews breaking of shabbat. If a non-Jew does "Melacha" for a Jew, say turns on the light and he does this only for the Jew and gets no profit/enjoyment from it, the Jew isn't meant to use the light. As I'm not sure how Halacha would rule on this case (as there wasn't electricity in the times of our Sages), I would still prefer that people won't write to me on the Sabbath and also because I wouldn't be able to answer it at that time. If it is important for the person to write at that time and it can't wait, I suppose he could decide for himself if to write or not. Thanks, SuperJew (talk) 17:20, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

FP voting[edit]

Please use standard voting (in any language) to oppose or support a picture. We've had long discussions about this years ago. It is not that your vote won't be counted but it is to be impartial. The problem is not as much with the support votes, but with the oppose votes. Soon somebody will start to use things like 'I hate it' or 'awful' and we really want to avoid that kind of unfriendliness. I'm not saying you are doing anything wrong, but better not wake some sleeping dogs, if you catch my drift. Thanks. Lycaon (talk) 17:39, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

File:Northern Harrier Biblical Zoo.JPG[edit]

Sorry, this is definitely not a Short-toed Eagle! Definitely a Buteo species; very probably Buteo rufinus (native in Israel), but Buteo regalis (if imported from North America) and maybe Buteo hemilasius (Asia) are also possible - MPF (talk) 10:04, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

And why do you say this? --SuperJew (talk) 13:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Hi SuperJew - a combination of several features, including structure, plumage colour and eye colour. Short-toed Eagle has a very distinctive shape, with a large head, often appearing crested (compare here or here), and with very bright yellow eyes, and a white or very pale belly with any dark confined to the upper breast (as here). The Jerusalem Zoo bird conversely shows a pale upper breast and dark belly, characteristic of Long-legged Buzzard Buteo rufinus and Ferruginous Hawk B. regalis, as is the dark eye (indicates an adult Buteo) and the relatively smaller head. Hope this helps! - MPF (talk) 17:53, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, I, on the other hand, took this pic at the zoo and there was one sign for Short toed Eagle and one for Northern Harrier... --> this pic is one of those --> It's not a Bueto Q.E.D --SuperJew (talk) 18:44, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
I fear, not the first time an incorrect label has been seen at a zoo! The bird shown on the website link you posted is clearly a different bird (see the bright yellow eyes!) and is a Short-toed Eagle. It may just be that they have not yet updated old signs to represent new occupants of the cage. Maybe ask the staff next time you visit there? - MPF (talk) 19:52, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
I will, though heavens knows when that will be. Thank you for you sharp eyedness (or something like that ;)) --SuperJew (talk) 06:41, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Haim Watzman[edit]

You'd be better asking a COM:OTRS volunteer: The details of the e-mail and any permission we can work out matters. We will need to work out a free licence, and it will need to have the photographer's permission (or evidence that the rights were granted to him), since English Wikipediia's fair-use policy forbids fair-use images of living people. Only exceptions might be complete recluses, like J. D. Salinger. Adam Cuerden (talk) 02:00, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Distribution of Boomerangs in Australia[edit]

Hi SuperJew, where from did you get the boomerang related information to create the image depicting the distribution of boomerangs in Australia? The map certainly is interesting, but unfortunately we have no clue where the basic information comes from. Apart from that, I think it would be better to substitute the fancy font you used for the word "legend" with another one (e.g. the one you use for the rest of the legend) to make it more encyclopaedic. --Marsupilami04 (talk) 11:10, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

I made this map for an assignment at school. The information is from "The Boomerang Information Book" by S. G. King (2001), published by J.B. Books Australia. Feel free to change the font and re-upload it if you wish. --SuperJew (talk) 10:35, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the information about the book, I added it to the description page. But the quality of the image will suffer if I was to change it because I can't download the map (image layer) and the legend (text layer) separately. Would you be so kind to change that, since you certainly still have the original file? You don't have to do it today... :-) --Marsupilami04 (talk) 12:02, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Yours sincerely cmadler (talk) 13:24, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

I riff-raffed through the discussions and i have to agree with Fry1989 and Spiridon ([1]) that this is a RIDICULOUS idea.
Tomorrow maybe I'll go, design a red circle (like in the middle of the Wikimedia commons symbol), copyright and then sue everyone, starting with wikimedia obviously.
I cannot even begin to comprehend how such a thing could be copyrighted.
But I'm not gonna argue, because I can see it will be talking to blank walls.
Sadly and Sincerely, SuperJew (talk) 14:55, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
I agree that it's idiotic, but when a court has ruled, we are stuck with it. The only change we could make is to eliminate the Commons requirement that a work must be free in both the US and the source country (and lower the requirement to free in the US); you could try to start a discussion on that topic at Commons talk:Licensing, though I wouldn't hold my breath. cmadler (talk) 15:17, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
I don't think I have enough experience here to start such a discussion. I would be grateful to you if you could do it.
--SuperJew (talk) 15:42, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
I'm not going to start that discussion, because I think the current rule is generally good, since it ensures that works on Commons will be free in much of the world (countries that use the rule of the shorter term), although it does result in a few frustrating cases like this. cmadler (talk) 16:40, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
An Australian friend of mine says this: "It's protected under the copywrite act 1968, in which rather than state it can't be reproduced, it essentially states that any reproduction of it should be handled fairly. It's aim is to ensure the concept of the Aboriginal flag isn't mocked or parodied, rather than never used."
Is this correct, and if so, can we have it under fair use?
--SuperJew (talk) 17:03, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Because "fair use" laws vary from country to country, and are often dependent on context, Commons does not accept "fair-use" files. Many other Wikimedia projects do; [[[:m:Non-free content|here's a list]]. Also, other Wikimedia projects may have different rules about where an image must be free. For example, English Wikipedia only requires a file to be free under US law. So there you will find en:File:Australian Aboriginal Flag.svg listed as a free file (too simple for US copyright), but marked not to be copied to Commons since it would be deleted here. cmadler (talk) 17:34, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

File:Horse Israel 01.jpg[edit]

Sorry, but there aren no horses looking like this on the world. It's a mule, whatever the sign there stated. Kersti (talk) 20:11, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Tell me one single horse breed which looks like this mule. I looked on all horse breeds we have photos of - and none of them looked that mule-like. Kersti (talk) 03:51, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, but don't revert my edits without answering my questions!!!! Please tell me why you believe this animal may be a horse. In sorting the horse pictures of Wikimedia Commons I looked on horses of breeds from all over the world, from the smallest pony or mini-horse to the biggest ones, from heaviest draft horses too arabs, akhal thekes and thoroughbreds, there are no horses, whick are looking this mule-like on the world. So tell me why you believe this is a horse or don't revert my edits! --Kersti (talk) 12:19, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

renominating an image for QI[edit]

Sorry I'm a bit slow in replying. Yes, you can renominate images that haven't been assessed, but probably best not to do it straight away as it will probably annoy people, especially if the reason they weren't assessed is because there are so many images waiting. It may also be that the images are marginal (I haven't checked to see) or by-passed for more interesting images - so look critically at your own images and decide if they could be improved. Best of luck :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 05:53, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

File:Water Wings.jpg[edit]

Hi SuperJew - just to explain my edit: categories are to help people find images. If someone wants to find a photo of a flying Black-headed Gull Chroicocephalus ridibundus to illustrate a wikipedia article, they'll go first to Category:Chroicocephalus ridibundus and from there to Category:Chroicocephalus ridibundus in flight. But they won't want an incomplete, blurred image that does not show the subject well and is clearly not the main subject of the image. So all that File:Water Wings.jpg does is clutter up that category without being useful in it, slowing down searches. Therefore, I consider it is best not to include it in that category. Of the brackets, they are not normally used in ornithological or other scientific literature, so are superfluous. I have frequently removed surplus brackets like these (I don't specifically hunt out to remove them, but do remove them when editing pages for any other reasons); this is the first time anyone has queried their removal. Hope this helps! - MPF (talk) 00:01, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I may understand your point about categories, not 100% sure i agree with it, but I moved the photo to broader cat. about the brackets, they help read the description, and it is IMO very weird and unclear to read a description "Coots Fulica atra" instead of "Coots (Fulica atra)". --SuperJew (talk) 11:17, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
MPF, I was just looking at this again, and I want to point out to you about the brackets that the Wikipedia pages of animals have the same format I used (with the brackets). see for example W:Eurasian Coot or W:Black-headed Gull. --SuperJew (talk) 07:49, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

File:Vidua macroura01.jpg[edit]

Why do you think, this is a female? The stripes at the head are too prominent for this and the beak is more reddish than in the females. --Kersti (talk) 11:21, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

I in the summary that the bill has a black-tinge, meaning it's female. look up some images of it on google. --SuperJew (talk) 12:21, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, now I understand your edit here.

Please answer my above question concerning the horse/mule - there are some a bit horse-like looking mules and there are some a bit mule-like-looking horses - but theses are mules which are not in the range where one couldn't be shure.

It is much more difficult to explain than in the birds, its something about the form of the head, the length of the ears and the mane, the form ob breast and legs, but it is the general impression, that is clearly out of the range a horse may look like and if you don't know exactly mother and father of the animal or it is clearly stated that this individual (not only all the animals in this stable) is a horse, which looks accidently like a mule, I would be shure, that it is a mule. --Kersti (talk) 12:23, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
