Dosseman is not my proper name, which is Dick Osseman. However, when - after 15 years of Wikipedia use - I started to publish in Wikicommons I found that I needed an identity for that purpose. This is it.

My pictures, tens of thousands of them, concerning Turkey and to a lesser extent Syria (from right before the war), Jordan and Italy are at and related sites. I intend to add a decent number of pictures to commons (so far over 10000, counting in October 2020), often to illustrate sights that I liked a lot, or maybe more often the ones that are overlooked by the general tourist. In general mainly historical and cultural ones. Always I claim copyright for large size pictures, so contact me in those cases through Pbase. Or write to . And if you use a picture I took anywhere, please mention me, using my full name.

I have been granted autopatrol rights on 25-3-2020. That indicates I do not have the ability to mark [other's] actions as patrolled; instead only their own [my own] actions are automatically marked as patrolled. This right is commonly granted to users who aren't necessarily involved in patrolling pages, edits or uploads, but create a high level of quality pages or uploads that do not require patrolling by other users. It seems to have advantages that I will be working out, and maybe use to good advantage. I mention it because I have on occassion been bothered by other users who thought they ought to correct my work. Please don't, but write to me instead if you feel I'm wrong.

I was pleased to receive a message as shown below (can be checked in my talk page, 25-6-2020). And I do intend to keep it up.
