Mistake[edit]

I'm sorry, it was of course not my intention. I got a warning, and moved up my text without deleting any text, do not know what went wrong. Best regards, --Ankara (talk) 19:30, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Zoomed version[edit]

Hello Wnt, can you provide a zoomed in version of the inflection point where growth turns around in this image? Thanks! --SJ+ 18:38, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

"Unpublished"[edit]

[1]: No, actually, I didn't specifically mean "unpublished". I think the matter is even clearer for published work. We have no need at all to track down subject-consent issues for images published before 1950. Given the assumption that the subject was at least 18 years old, if they are still alive they are now at least 78. Most will have been older (or the picture will have been earlier). - Jmabel ! talk 00:25, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

We already have a section that says that published work that makes it to a free license is assumed to have consent period. Isn't that how you read it? Wnt (talk) 04:18, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Take your filthy vicious rants elsewhere, because we don't want them on Commons[edit]

You may consider it allegedly "funny", but I don't (and if that makes me "uncool", then I really couldn't give a rat's ass) -- and I see absolutely no reason why I should have to put up with having my name be next to and associated with your odoriferous pile of obscenity-inanities... AnonMoos (talk) 19:46, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Hey, an editor made up a cute, elaborate little figure for an article, and you were griefing him about a few pixels of blank space around the edge. The usual gift-horse analogy seemed somewhat insufficient. Wnt (talk) 20:35, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
Whatever -- they're semi-nifty graphics (though quite ephemeral, each of interest for only a few days), but they're laid out in a program which seems to be intended for producing slides or report pages, not inline Wikipedia article graphics, and the uploader has done nothing to meaningfully compensate for this, but instead lashes out wildly in all directions and blames everybody but himself when the images don't display well inline in Wikipedia articles. And meanwhile, I see no reason why my user identity should be associated with your string of contumelious epithets in perpetuity by means of Google. AnonMoos (talk) 11:40, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
AnonMoos? AYFKM? And the only epithet I used was arse, not in reference to you, but to the gift-horse.
Seriously, remember that Wikimedia Commons is not just for Wikipedia articles, and certainly not just for inline previews in Wikipedia articles. Wnt (talk) 03:00, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
I have gone by AnonMoos for almost 10 years (almost 15 if you count a previous slightly different spelling before I changed ISP's) so it is not a "throwaway". If you search AnonMoos on Google you get over 20,000 hits, the vast majority of which are as a result of my activities. Amusing as it may seem to you, there is a consistent long-term identity associated with the name... AnonMoos (talk) 12:15, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Well, you learn something new every day. ;) I probably have seen the name in other formats and assumed it was just a common variation. Wnt (talk) 01:17, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Copy-edit to Copy-edit to COM:SEX[edit]

I did a pretty major copy-edit to the proposal. Can you give the current version a once over to check that it's still all intact. No major policy changes or info removed, but a lot of shuffling, and I want to make sure nothing got lost. Thanks, Ocaasi (talk) 05:33, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

(I should note that after some months, this proposal appears pretty dead, and there doesn't seem to be interest in reviving its parts - it may be time to redirect it to the subsequent Help:Sexual content and close the case). Wnt (talk) 00:56, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Babel boxes[edit]

The Commons community values the contributions of editors who speak many different languages. Please consider adding Babel boxes to your userpage. They may help others communicate with you. Walter Siegmund (talk) 17:49, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I forgot about this request before, but I've set it up now. Wnt (talk) 01:08, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you, Wnt, for the sound and reasoned rationale you have provided in your comment at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Speaking Out About Organized Scientology.pdf. Much appreciated. ;) Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 01:20, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Wnt!

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.

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

Note to self: the recommended upload tag is "{{self|cc-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}}". And you can't supersede an edit by clicking on the Upload button again after adding a tag, like you can in Wikipedia. Wnt (talk) 18:15, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Catawissa[edit]

Do you have any images of Catawissa when it's not flooded that you could upload to be added to w:Catawissa, Pennsylvania. I am using a flood image for now. It's not ideal, but better than nothing. Gerry D (talk) 22:50, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

'dot' template[edit]

... worked for me just now. I was surprised! :) - Alison 22:28, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Did you actually submit the edit? I don't see it, and preview works fine for any blacklisted site.
That thing dot ... ach... the way caching works remains obscure to me. The theory is:
  1. There's no blacklist check when a template is changed (otherwise thousands of pages would have to be purged and scanned), so a template can be changed after the fact to make a badlink. So for example, if I try to write
http://www.wikipediareview
  • com/(first I have to submit to see if reason prevailed, but I doubt it; censorship seems to stick to tools - indeed, I get their message still, so for now I'll put it in with User:Wnt/Sandbox)
OK - changing the Sandbox to "." it works, but if I recall correctly, this next edit won't save. And indeed it didn't, until I changed it back. Wnt (talk) 16:58, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
So the next thing is, suppose I have a template which evaluates the last time the page was edited, and compares that to the current time. Thus:
http://www.wikipediareview.com/ . Then the page displays a non-standard dot at the moment that it is edited, passing the filter, but changes to a dot immediately afterward. Problem solved. (This might be alleged to violate policy, but using the spam filter for censorship is the true violation of policy, and this merely is investigating a way to set it straight) Wnt (talk) 17:02, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
The problem is that I reload the page, and it still doesn't change. But I thought I could fix that by having the currenttime separate in User:Wnt/Templates/dot - then purge that template using [2], to reset the time. It seemed to work in previewing of the original template. This was a less-than-optimal solution, as for a busy page this would have to be purged over and over again to keep the link working, but I suppose it could be posted to 4chan "See my latest rickroll" or something. ;) Or put in an iframe somewhere, if there's somewhere convenient where those are still allowed. Wnt (talk) 17:07, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Problem is, I purge it, and unlike in the template itself when I looked... nothing happens. I'll guess what goes on is that the purged template is marked to be reevaluated in the template page it's in, but that that template isn't marked for reevaluation (and if it were, it would be like a fresh edit, resetting it to not a dot). So now I'll try a new idea, which is to subst the thing:
http://www.wikipediareview.com/ Wnt (talk) 17:09, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
But that doesn't work either. So it's not that any template ever gets marked for reevaluation, I guess - the page is simply cached the first time it's edited, and it stays the way it was when you edited it. But wait, no... otherwise the first example I did wouldn't work. I edited the Sandbox template and the page changed. But I purge the template dot and the time it returns doesn't change. So what gives? Hmmm... Wnt (talk) 17:14, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Aha... I tried purging a few more times - no proper periods. But then I added "testing" to the noinclude part of the template, and the links become fully clickable. So the point is, purging the template is not the same as editing it, no matter what the docs say. Editing it marks my page displaying it to be reevaluated - purging it only changes the result when I view the template directly. I think this weirdness has confused me more than a few times when trying to understand other templates for more conventional uses! Now to try an authentic edit-save null edit to see what happens. (Note - by submitting this edit, the periods will go back up to their funny position so as to avoid being rejected by the filter) Wnt (talk) 17:19, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Alright - that's odd. I saved that edit and the periods were still down, with clickable links, immediately after the edit. That's just not even in the range of possible options. Like I said - achh!! Wnt (talk) 17:21, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Whereas putting in that edit (no purges of any kind in the meanwhile) put them back up again... sigh... Wnt (talk) 17:22, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Alright, Edit and Save (without changing anything) brought the periods down to their right position just now (at least, this time). Whereas purge never does. Wnt (talk) 17:24, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Mexico cartel map[edit]

Can you update this image with this new map? Or at least create a new file. I am not unfamiliar with SVG files. Thanks! --87.16.217.246 01:59, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

I used w:Inkscape, which is free and not that complicated to use (and I didn't do a very good job with it) - I don't think I'm likely to get around to this anytime soon, especially not for an incremental change in boundaries/identities. Wnt (talk) 00:28, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Not really, I stopped hoping a long time ago. I think the category tree was created by hand after all... Matma Rex (talk) 07:55, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
