I hope I did not discourage you - it's really great to have motivated new users, and you are already contributing very good and useful images! So, keep up the good work, but look around a little more and talk to people before starting to create and change organisational features. Thanks! --

Fox and Tame foxes[edit]

You seem to love fox, so I just want ask you a confirmation of something.
I had read , long time before, than some one raised many fox. And after (around) 8 generations, the new fox seems to be "doggyfied" : the new fox lost their bad smell, became more friendly with human, and they ears down (like dogs). That's true or just a legend ? Yug talk 11:25, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

The story reminds me a lot of narrations about a project in russia that started many years ago. For some reason they tried and still try to tame foxes, and as an effect of that they not only became more tame, but more dog-like as well (they wag their tail when they are happy for example). This is the only source I can find ad hoc, I think somewhere on the BBC website is also a more mature report on the same topic. I'm myself quite interested in this project, but the information on the web is quite sparsely.

I'm interresting but I'm a little afraid too by this project. I seen somewhere than tame dogs, which are come from wolf, have a brain 2 times smaller than their ancestor (wolf). I know than have a big trouble too for some tame and "selective" species, which haven't a big population, so they become fragile (weak).
For me, all the good point of fox is to still be "naturaly smart" and still have a good instinct, and to don't have a selected blood seem to be better. I'm curious and sceptic of what are the effects of a quick tame (50 years), which I suppose to be with a tiny population of ancestor.
Anyway, If one day you find around 10~20 pages about it : I interresting to read it.

Hi - please provide information about the authors/contributors and the source of this cute firefox. The GFDL requires the author to be named, if you made the image yourself, please say so - if you used someone elses work to make it, please credit the author.

Please also add license info to Image:Mongolfière.jpg. Thanks -- Duesentrieb 21:40, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC) &#4E00;

Hi Yup, you forgot to specify the Creative Commons licence at Image:Adoptfirefox.jpg. -guety 8 July 2005 10:58 (UTC)

Usually we can't make the choice for him, which is the best for him depends on what the author wants. The best would be to ask him. Can he be reacht via feedback((aaa)) -guety 8 July 2005 11:42 (UTC)
Well complicated, what about to assume a licence (cc-by or cc-by-sa) and ask him if it's ok for him that we assumed it, should work without explaining the detail he is not interested in and has a legal basis that just assuming does not has. -guety 8 July 2005 12:19 (UTC)
But it's CC-SA or only CC? Because CC don't need to republish in CC again. Only the CC-SA. But, if you preffer, I do it. ;) thanks! --FML IconSP.jpg hi 8 July 2005 19:48 (UTC)

Yug, please take a look at Image:Adoptfirefox-pt.png and say to me if it's OK.

Thank you very much! --FML IconSP.jpg hi 04:39, 12 July 2005 (UTC)


Hi Yug. CC-by-sa doesn't allow the author to require that "the red mark "Shari" have to stay on the pic". Unless Shari is willing to drop that condition and allow unrestricted modification, the image will have to be deleted. dbenbenn | talk 16:30, 15 July 2005 (UTC)

Image:Kind of chinese stroke 1.JPG and Image:Kind of chinese stroke 2.JPG[edit]

These images are reproductions of a book, and you can not license them as you like, because the creator of the book has rights to them (no matter if you do, too). If the book is public domain, please document that. If not, the images will have to be deleted. I have marked them as "unknown" for now. -- Duesentrieb 13:47, 11 July 2005 (UTC)

Also, Image:Kind of chinese stroke 1.JPG was tagged as redundant to Image:Kind_of_chinese_stroke_bw.png, which does not exist and never has existed. This is kind of confusing... -- Duesentrieb 13:49, 11 July 2005 (UTC)

Commons tags[edit]

Hey, you've tagged a few images with {{cc-2.0}} but no such licence exists. Were you hoping for {{cc-by-sa-2.0}} or {{cc-by-2.0}}? Thanks, Joolz 16:20, 24 July 2005 (UTC)


Hello dear Yug,
if you like to correct my English, please take a look at: [1] in section "logo". thank you very much! --FML IconSP.jpg hi 18:11, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

But about [2] in section "logo", you know? :-) thanks! --FML IconSP.jpg hi 18:35, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

Perhaps youre right, we may not have enough interested users. In any case, I will probably be participating in the English one, and I would in the French one to except for no speakie the french ;)--Orgullomoore 03:04, 16 July 2005 (UTC)


Bonjour Yug, Je te remercie pour les compliments à propos de mes photos. Mais je ne dispose pas d'appareil photo pour le moment. Je ne peux que décliné l'offre pour le moment --- Pixeltoo 20:07, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

SAlut, j'ai (un peu) modifier tes données sur l'image Image:Yug&Brother (Paris 2005).jpg. J'ai rajouter la catégorie Category:Wikipedians. Si tu veux tu peux aussi la remplacer par Category:Personal images. Ai fait, mon anglais n'est pas génial, que signifie cette catégorie ? --Pseudomoi 20:22, 21 October 2005 (UTC)


Hello Yug, unfortunately I have no more pictures of Indio villages of the Puyo region other than can be found on Category:Ecuador. But I plan to do a second trip to Ecuador in February 2006, maybe I can supply afterwards a few more pictures. --Mazbln 20:56, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Bonjour Yug, j'ai suivi tes conseils pour la version en anglais. Dis-moi si cela convient et permettra aux graphistes (ou autres) de traduire les légendes plus facilement.
merci encore pour le détourage.

Image:Solfuga2 CM.jpg[edit]

Hi Yug. Yes, they are truly scary creatures. See the articles linked at Solifugae (en, de, fr, pl).

They actually have eight legs plus two feeler appendages that look like legs, and are therefore Aracnids. The have the strongest jaws in the animal kingdom (with respect to their size) and run very fast. The wind_scorpion images I took are a North American species about 40mm in length. The Solfuga_CM images, from Polish user Radomil, are an Iraqi species about 150mm in length. --Duk 04:37, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

World map[edit]

Hello! I hope you're well; thanks for your note. Actually, that's no error: the current world map you indicated is only intended to include independent nation-states for easy colouring ... and none of the territories listed are. The last thing such a map needs is to include a plethora of archipelagos that will be difficult to identify or colour.

That doesn't mean we can't modify the map, but we should upload another one: the current one is widely used in the English Wikipedia. So, I propose this: the prior version I uploaded should be restored. However, we should upload a revised world map – with the additional island groups and details – to another file locale like "BlankMap-World-alt". Make sense? Let me know if you've any questions. E Pluribus Anthony 06:37, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

I'm fine :] , I think we already have a good limit : the size of one pixel, wich make something such as an island about 30km/30km (or 20/20km ?). I think islands big like this can be show on the map, and that was a calm choice.
I made about 15 maps from this World map, that was not really difficult to coloured islands because for one large country we commonly just have 10 little islands, so that's ok. But, when we want to show south east asia and India (for my version), I think this kind of "middle size" islands have to be on the map. For war and geopolitic, this islands are really importants.
At the time when I made my map, I considered this question, I made a calm choice for the biggest islands of the area.
I think we have to show a little more, and than we have to put the middle size islands too. ~ Yug (talk) 18:39, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
Hi there; thanks for your reply. I don't necessarily disagree, but I think we can create specific maps for South Asia and other regions (e.g., like the ones that already exist for the Caribbean and the Middle East) or create a new one without overcomplicating this map. The map in question is intended to be a simple world map and is used consistently throughout much of (the English) Wikipedia. By adding single pixels for territories that aren't nation-states or are already depicted, users may overlook or fail to colourise them if there are too many. And if you retain or edit the modified one, I recommend naming it something different while retaining/reverting to a simpler version of the current map at that location.
Also note that there are other (similar) world maps that are more detailed and do include more islands (and render them more accurately), like this map of Image:LocationAntarctica.png, for example. I suggest his be used as a base map for what you propose, not the current one. Make sense? E Pluribus Anthony 14:27, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Hispanophone world map[edit]

I'm not working on this map now. Most of the misunderstanding come from the unclear definition of "native speaker", please work to improve the legend before to ask anyone to improve the map. Yug (talk) 21:34, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Deletion script[edit]

Do you have Linux/Unix or similar (Cygwin)? If you do, I'll email it to you. If not, I can run it for you. But you have to PROMISE me that none of the images are being used and they're definitely not needed any more. :) --pfctdayelise (translate?) 14:10, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

OK. I checked the usage and none were used, except I can't check en.wp of course. I leave it to your responsibility to check!! pfctdayelise (translate?) 14:38, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
完了! :) --pfctdayelise (translate?) 15:09, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Image reutilization[edit]

Hi Yug I saw some of your pictures about CPE here on commons and I want to ask you if the combination of licence used (GFDL + CC BA-SA) permit the reuse of the photos for a publication (a free-press magazine), provided the author and the licence printed with the images. In any case i think it's right to ask you the permission for doing that (and in any case there's the need for a name of the author to "attribute" something!). my userpage on italian wikipedia is [[5]] thanks in advance c. -- 00:29, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Really great, really helpful, useful and so on.... maybe in the end I'm really *grateful* to you! See you here on wikipedia, have a nice... uh-ehm... a nice whatever o_O



Salut Yug.
Une très belle carte, très propre et claire. La vectoriser représenterait beaucoup de travail et malheureusement je n'ai pas vraiment le temps en ce moment. Désolé. D'autre part, je me demande si l'image finale en svg n'aura pas une taille en Ko rédhibitoire au vu de la quantité de détails. À plus. Sting 21:03, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Commons-l subscription[edit]

Hello Yug,

as per Commons talk:Administrators, I am asking all admins to subscribe to commons-l, a mailing list for Wikimedia Commons policy and project discussion. Since many admins are only on Commons infrequently, this is a good way to alert people about important happenings. The mailing list is nominally multilingual, but predominantly English.

If you are already subscribed to commons-l, I apologize for bothering you, and you are free to ignore this message. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail account, feel free to leave me a message, and I can send you a GMail invite. Traffic on the mailing list is relatively low, and we do not expect admins to read all messages to the list, but it would be nice if you could check on it at least every few weeks. Thanks for your time,--Eloquence 23:18, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
