Your uploads from Flickr[edit]

Could you please tell me what you where thinking by uploading e.g. Image:Leffler - WomensLib1970 WashingtonDC.jpg and Image:Leffler -1968 WashingtonDC MLK riots.jpg with the FlickrUploadBot. Did you believe that the bot can read the image description and thus will know that this image is not by the Flickr-user and not under the licence the flickr-user selected. For your information: a bot can't read that kind of information. For that you need a thinking human, one who uploads this image with the correct attribution and licence. -- Cecil (talk) 03:05, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

transferring source info?[edit]

hi, I have been transfering them with s bot. I f there is missing info I need to stop! Which image in particular? (Off2riorob (talk) 21:27, 30 May 2009 (UTC))

Ok quill, what can I say I have transfered about 1000 files and these two, I can only suggest they never had any source info and perhaps I was mistaken to transfer them, these two files have no links to any page. I need to know what if anything I did wrong as I intend to move more files, so if you can explain I would be grateful. thanks (Off2riorob (talk) 18:16, 31 May 2009 (UTC))

I will not transfer any more files until this is cleared up, best regards. (Off2riorob (talk) 18:21, 31 May 2009 (UTC))

did you see the comment on my talk page regarding these files by Quadell? (Off2riorob (talk) 10:34, 1 June 2009 (UTC))

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Themightyquill!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

[edit]

Dear Mightyquill, thanks for your work, but I don't quite understand why you removed the categories that I found for my picture File:Libélo-Valence.jpg: it is about bike sharing, therefore belongs in Category:Bicycles and Category:Transport in my humble opinion. SInce this service is provided by a firm, it belongs as well in the Category:Industry, don't you think so? If you don't give me elements against it, I will put these categories back.

Thanks, regards, Christian.Mercat (talk) 15:14, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

CC[edit]

Hi Themightyquill, I noticed you started using Commons Commander. As I use it regularly, if you need help with it or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me. The alpha-version still has a few bugs and sometimes gets stuck, but overall I think it's quite useful. -- User:Docu at 22:44, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

FYI, I started a page about it at Commons:Tools/cc. -- User:Docu at 10:15, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

RE: Map[edit]

Look, I could care less to be honest, but are you oblivious to the fact that the blue doesn't make it clear who annexed it? Mnmazur (talk)

Just because you made the image does not give you the sole right to edit it. And please, mind the attitude, you're not being very civil. Mnmazur (talk)

I don't quite get it[edit]

Could you provide an explanation for why you removed all these categories? Thanks, cheers, --Edelseider (talk) 17:07, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Aww, shucks. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 12:45, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

NHSC[edit]

Hi. Sorry for the delay in responding. Patriotic pride wasn't my intent -- I just used the symbol I thought logically could be used as a marker (the stylized beaver used by Parks Canada is presumably copyrighted). But I'm not trying to be jingoistic -- I appreciate you letting me know you know that's how it came across. Any suggestions? --Skeezix1000 (talk) 15:07, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

No worries - the question was fine, and I am glad you raised it. Someone when one does something, one doesn't notice all the implications until someone else points them out. I agree that I should replace the maple leaf, because I don't want to create a precedent for patriotic icons on various categories. I kind of think a marker is helpful (although maybe it should like to Wikipedia articles, using LangSwitch, rather than simply to the parent category), and a marker been used for the French monuments historiques for some time (see, for example, Category:Château de Brest). Other heritage designations, like the Dutch Rijksmonument or World Heritage Sites have full templates with designation numbers - since NHSC aren't assigned numbers, and the designation categories aren't well known, I thought a full template here was a bit overblown. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 16:10, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 14:50, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

People of / People from[edit]

Hello. I do think that the current category tree is a bit of a mess, because there is no rhyme or reason whether it is "of" or "from". As you know, it's consistent for Canada, except for Vancouver (all provinces → "of", all cities → "from"), but not across the board (e.g. People of Ontario, but People from Wisconsin; People from Toronto, but People of London). Are you interested in making changes just to the Canadian cats, or to the whole category tree? If just Cdn., I wouldn't oppose a switch of everything to "from" (except perhaps for "People of Canada", as then there would be a consistency problem with other countries). If across the board, there are several possible solutions, which could include:

  • People from [country, region/subnational entity, city, neighbourhood] (standard format for everyone)
  • People of [country, region/subnational entity, city, neighbourhood] (same approach)
  • People of [country], People from [region/subnational entity, city, neighbourhood] ("of" for countries, "from" for everything else)
  • People of [country], People of [region/subnational entity], People from [city/neighbourhood] ("of" for countries and provinces, "from" for municipalities, etc.)

There are other variations, of course, but those seem to make most sense. I may be worth raising at COM:CAT. What do you think? --Skeezix1000 (talk) 17:28, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Interestingly, note this discussion. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 17:29, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for initiating all the necessary moves. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 18:13, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I see you're using the {{move}} tag - I might have been less cautious and just listed them at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands, but your approach is probably the right one. When I get the chance I will help you tag 'em. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 18:19, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Hi. Did you mean to do this? I didn't want to revert it, because maybe I am missing something. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 14:44, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Art of/Art in[edit]

Hello. As is so often the case, the art categories are inconsistent across the board. Having been categorizing so many monuments and memorials this past year, I've found most categories are "Art of". It didn't occur to me that there should be a different convention for cities, although maybe that should be the case. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 03:15, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

In what sense are File:Rainier Beer - filling bottles - 1900.jpg and File:Rainier Beer - bottle storage - 1900.jpg "Unidentified beverage bottles"?

Why deleted ?[edit]

Hello. You deleted Cécémel_assortiment.jpg. This is a picture I took myself at the request of the contributor Avatar (here's the proof!) representing different bricks, cup and glassware of Cécémel in possession of the inn of the en:Gourmet Museum and Library where I free work.

I don't understand why you deleted it. And why pictures in Coca-Cola or Category:Lipton (tea) or Category:Jupiler_beer can stay...

The picture shows packagings of Cécémel as sold by supermarkets and grocery stores in French-speaking Belgium and typical cup and glassware used for this product in the coffeehouses of Belgium to serve this drink. There are therefore objects of common utilities and packaging just as common...

So I thank you to restore this picture.

American Indian vs. "Native Americans in the United States"[edit]

Why did you do this? I am American Indian and I do not like the term "Native American" to describe us. Anyone born in the Americas (For example: someone named Schultz born in Argentine is a "Native American") is a Native American. Are you an official of Wikipedia? Was there a discussion at Wikipedia about this change? Has Wikipedia decided that this is the official opinion of Wikipedia?

When I enter my photos (many of which had their category changed due to your apparent efforts) as American Indian in their category, I mean it. If someone wants to ALSO ADD it to another category, that is up to them.

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

Copyright Norway vs USA[edit]

Thanks for your feedback regarding Vigeland pictures. Do you know if the US 95 year rule really applies to pictures objects in Norway? Regards --Erik den yngre (talk) 18:56, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Ethiopia pics[edit]

Dear Themightyquill, thank you very much for taking the time to evaluate these pics, I appreciate that. I recall that some were already deleted for the very same reason, since these are batch uploaded and I did not mean to break any rules but evidently we must have missed some. You might also ask for speedy deletion because they were not meant to be uploaded, of course, citing that criterion and this message, if you will. Also feel free to skip notifications if this helps :) --Elitre (talk) 18:48, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Thermal baths[edit]

Why do you think this removal is correct? Orrlingtalk 20:34, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for asking. I removed it for two reasons. One, it was redlinked. Two, I don't think of human-constructed thermal baths as being nature. I just checked and Category:Thermal baths is not a subcategory of Category:Nature (nor is Category:Hot springs, for that matter), and Category:Thermal baths in Germany is not a sub-cat of Category:Nature in Germany (nor are other similar thermal baths by country x categories). I hope that makes sense. - Themightyquill (talk) 20:44, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Actually, neither is a reason. :/ First and foremost, hotsprings/thermal baths and about anything that has to do with geological phenomenae is hard for me to think of as not directly related to nature; that equivalent categories other than Budapest haven't yet been aligned to this obviousity is clearly not warranting that those very-famous thermal baths of Budapest be off-derivation of the city's nature... And no, red links as parent cats are not omitted because they are red. Eventually there'll be enough content and Category:Nature of Budapest will be created. Cheers. Orrlingtalk 21:17, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Actually, they're both reasons, but I see you don't agree. Again, it's not just equivalent categories for other cities: Category:Thermal baths is not a subcategory of Category:Nature and neither is Category:Hot springs. It doesn't make sense to just add it in this one case. However, all the other equivalent categories AND Category:Thermal baths are categorized under Category:Geothermal features so I've added Hungary and Budapest's thermal baths to that category. Good compromise? - Themightyquill (talk) 21:31, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Of course Category:Hot springs and Category:Thermal baths are subcategories of Category:Nature. Where do you think they both go uptree? Category:Springs >>> Category:Bodies of water >>> Category:Landforms >>> Category:Nature. This would be so unbelievably strange if "Hot springs" weren't related to "Nature", don't you think? The problem now, as I see it, is that you've apparently created a category – Category:Geothermal features in Budapest – whose sole cause was to contain that one single item we're talking about, and, unlike "Nature of Budapest", it has quite obviously nil growth prospect... which makes it rather useless. If you know how the categorization principle works, you may know that this is a less helpful solution, not to say odd (there is no "Category:Geothermal features by city" while there is Category:Nature by city) and even if it does exist, it can't evade the "Nature of"-parent, itself... I'll appreciate if you undo yourself and discard the uncustomary, unnecessary "Category:Geothermal features in Budapest" replacing it with Category:Nature of Budapest, which will soon after be a blue link for at least that one concern. Thanks. Orrlingtalk 21:58, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
I think it's far stranger to have a bunch of photos of buildings in a subcategory of the category nature. Yes, they have a connection to nature, but they are hardly photos of nature, any more than a drinking fountain or a wooden desk is a photo of nature. I've created the reasonable sub-categories including Category:Nature of Budapest. If you want to propose deletion of Geothermal features of Budapest, go right ahead. Thanks for your help on this matter. - Themightyquill (talk) 15:22, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
It isn't the buildings that are the nature, it's the encyclopedic fact that these are primarily related to an ever-throbbing subterranean natural activity. I wouldn't bother to categorize Swimming pools as subset of Nature, would I? And finally, when it comes to nature-in-cities, most elements are man-modified/processed which doesn't efface the nature kernel of them i.e. parks. Cheerz Orrlingtalk 16:26, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. I'm glad it worked out though. By the way, are you sure there aren't any geothermal features in Budapest that haven't been turned into thermal baths? - Themightyquill (talk) 16:30, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Budapest boasts of its nature just for these baths, so I don't see where the disagreement is. Advise you to have a look at contents of random city's nature categories so you fetch an idea on the wide range of things that qualify as urban nature. To your last question, I assume with most probability that "geothermal features in Budapest" has no value other than embracing the one cat you created it for. This makes that parent as odd enough to be unwelcome, and we generally avoid constructing categories unless we know they potentially have more than one child. Orrlingtalk 16:41, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
I can't understand why you won't accept that my view has at least some validity. There's a difference between "things that use nature" and "nature." Category:Painters from Hungary back be tracked through Category:Colours to Category:Nature. Painters use colours, and colours are a natural phenomenon. I have no problem with that line of categories, but that doesn't mean I think Category:Painters from Hungary belongs in Category:Nature of Hungary. For a less extreme example, Category:Windmills in Amsterdam isn't listed under Category:Nature of Amsterdam. I understand your point of view, and I've found a solution that seems to suit us both, but your instance that you are 100% right is starting to look like bullying. I'd appreciate if you'd let the conversation end here.- Themightyquill (talk) 18:11, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Changes to the Category of a photo for the Pausilipo[edit]

Hi,

I do not understand why you change a perfectly valid category ("Monuments of Los Santos Province") to a description (Finca "Pausílipo" del Doctor Belisario Porras) which does not constitute a category, but the name of the monument... If you want to create "El Pausilipo" as category, it is clearly a sub-category of the previous one. Changing the category by a specific name of the monument does not make sense to me... specially since is done only for this monument. The name of the photo clearly specifies already it as "El Pausilipo" and there is no need to change a useful general category. So I will undo it until you explain the change..

use of your picture Pinot Blanc grapes[edit]

Hello, I would like to make you aware of the placement of your photo (a section of, rotatetd) on my website:
