Hi! I used your excellent picture for the main page of edition 363 of my online horse magazine. See - the main article deals with the recommendation of Prof. Cook regarding Strasser's work on hoof care. Thanks a lot! --Werner Popken 17:27, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi! I used your excellent picture for the main page and main article of edition 364 of my online horse magazine. See and - it deals with the open letter of Prof. Cook regarding Strasser's work on hoof care. Thanks a lot! --Werner Popken 17:27, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome[edit]

I will probably spend more time here on the Commons than on the .it side, so it's easiest to communicate with me here. I like your ideas for categorization and management of the histopathology slides. I have been working on making .svg medical diagrams and hopefully can contribute some to the proliferation of public domain (etc) high-quality medical images! InvictaHOG 16:58, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Image use in textbook[edit]

Hi Alex,

My name is Christine and I work for an educational textbook publishers and we would like to use one of your images in a textbook of ours. The image we would like to use is the Prostate pin images. I was hoping you could contact me through email, at athos2001 ---- @ ----- (please take the spaces out, trying to save myself from spam). I look forward to hearing from you and all the best, Christine

Approvazione di page rename[edit]

Ho approvato il rename, ma la cosa non è detto che sia rapidissima, a volte serve più di una settimana. Se hai veramente fretta ricarica il file con il nome corretto e poi chiedi la cancellazione di quello vecchio con il template {{bad name|correctly named image}}. --Luigi Chiesa (talk) 19:12, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Image:A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism Volume 1 Fig2.png[edit]

Treatise, Maxwell[edit]

You asked me a few days ago, if I can help you with the scans I've uploaded from James Clerk Maxwell's "treatise on electricity and magnetism". If you have concrete questions, I can help you perhaps. The question, If I own the book is yes, but the scanned pages are from another source. I also have a pdf-version of this book, from where the images where extracted. The pdf contains no text, only scanned pages, so the uploaded pictures have the same quality. I found, that some users here are discussing about copyright-issues. I can assure you that this uploading this pictures is fully legal, because the author of this book died more than 80 years ago. Red Rooster (talk) 21:47, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Red, yes, would be that I will need to understand better some characters into some formula. I'll mark the proofread pages as "problematic" and I'll write questionable details in red: see [Vol. I, pag. 29] for an example. With a little increasing experience and a better scanned source I solved (I hope) other pendings problems. --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 20:13, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Alex brollo!

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:


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]]

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").

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.

Ciao Alex. Si, è da un po' che odio Commons. Per un sacco di motivi e quindi in genere ci giro al largo. Poi avevo un'immagine "obbligatoria" per s:Inaugurazione della strada ferrata da Milano a Monza in quanto facente parte del piccolo articolo e il buon Edo mi ha detto mettila in Commons e poi link. L'ho fatto ma ho molto sofferto. :) Poi ne ho inserita un'altra e ho cercato altre categorie risolvendo "questo" problema. Una delle categorie è proprio quella che mi hai suggerito. Ma resta il problema di perché esistano le categorie Railway in Germany e in Austria mentre in Italy c'era ed è stata cancellata. Se segui Commons da qualche anno il perché lo sai. Ecco anche il perché io me ne sto alla larga. Non voglio fare il patriottico italico ma qui dentro c'è puzza.--Silvio Gallio (talk) 15:01, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

valid SVG[edit]

Il codice delle tue immagini non presenta problemi particolari. All'inizio ho semplicemente allineato meglio linee e palline e già che c'ero ho inserito dati necessari per rendere il codice valido. Comunque non c'è alcuna necessita reale di ridisegnare i diagrammi, le linee e le palline sono solo leggermente disallineate. --Luigi Chiesa (talk) 21:24, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Re:Saluti da it.source[edit]

Per la categorizzazione c'è un po' di anarchia, ho cercato di mettere un po' d'ordine, ma non è il massimo dell'efficienza (ad esempio categorizzare per djvu o pdf non è molto efficiente). Per gli elementi grafici puoi usare queste categorie: Category:Initials (con sottocategorie per lettera) Category:Typographic ornaments Category:SVG printing art. Comunque non farti problemi per il lavoro di categorizzazione, se posso ti aiuto senza problemi, d'altronde come Luigi62 anch'io ti do molto lavoro. --Luigi Chiesa (talk) 20:02, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Alex brollo, I don't now what you mean by your remark on de Book Illustrations category. I have been wondering if it's not possible to do this in an automated fashion.

Really too much work to remove the Book illustrations category by hand, like Histoire des églises et chapelles de Lyon (455 pictures!). Can you help? Judithcomm


No, guarda non mi appare nulla, non so perché. è molto strano e non capisco perché proprio a me. Come in quote ho infilato ilcodice in Common.js poiché gli altri codice di javascript stanno lì e così evito che vadano in conflitto, ma qui apro la pagina Creator e non appare nessun pulsante. Puoi vedere perfavore se ho sbagliato qualcosa? Raoli ✉ (talk) 17:53, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

hai ragione, non dovrebbero comparire pulsanti, ma due voci nella sidebar a sinistra, più o meno in fondo: metadati it:w e metadati en:w. Per attivare i pulsanti ci vuole qualche passaggio in più. Le due voci dovrebbero comparire all'apertura di una pagina Creator. --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 09:17, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Ora si che li vedo. Genio che sei! Praticamente in 3 secondi compilo il template. in più uso l'Add authority control e in 5 secondi creo il template creator per qualcuno. Certo, poi devo ricontrollare i dati, ma il grosso è fatto. Si potrebbe applicare la stesa cosa per trascludere il template film di Pedia su Quote. I pratica quando creo una nuova voce su Quote sarebbe utile che la stessa funzione di qui mi incolli in quella voce il template film da Pedia esattamente come è su Pedia, tanto i parametri di Quote sono gli stessi di Pedia. é geniale quest'idea. Dovresti far richiesta su Meta per avere supporto dalla Wikimedia Foundation per sviluppare tale progetto. Qui m:Research:Subject recruitment (puoi anche parlare con w:en:User:DarTar che parla italiano e fa parte della fondazione) o qui m:Wikimedia_Fellowships/Project_Ideas e quindi qui m:Wikimedia_Fellowships/Process#Submit_a_Project_Idea (puoi anche parlare con w:it:Elitre che ha già fatto qualche proposta in queste pagine per un nuovo progetto). In generale per me devi far sapere alla Wikimedia Foundation delle possibilità offerte dalla tua idea in modo che venga aiutato a sviluppare applicazioni di questa cosa nel miglior modo possibile.

Mi spiace moltissimo di sentirtelo dire. Pensaci con calma e considera anche che per me sarebbe un motivo di grave rincrescimento e di vivo senso di colpa; mi sentirei inevitabilmente, in parte, responsabile, per non aver trovato il giusto equilibrio fra incoraggiarti e frenarti.

Non ti conviene mettere nella tua pagina un bel {{LangSwitch}} in modo che la descrizione "Pagina collassata" appaia nella lingua dell'utente? Se ti può far comodo ti segnalo uno strumento VisualFileChange che ti permette di eseguire le operazioni più comuni su Commons in massa senza essere amministratore. In pratica potresti spostare migliaia di immagini con un solo clic oppure altre cose che faresti con un bot. Inoltre ti consiglio ti proporre come gadget per Commons il tuo strumento per aggiungere automaticamente la roba in "Creator", "Information" o "Book". Sarebbe più semplice utilizzarlo come sai da tutte e richiede solo che tu diventi suo mantenitore per casi in cui va in errore. --Raoli ✉ (talk) 14:25, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Grazie dei suggerimenti! Tuttavia, in questo momento ho una priorità assoluta: finire il passaggio a SAL 75% di Zibaldone, vol.VII ed ultimo. Ci vorrnno ancora una-due settimane, il testo è tosto.... A proposito: ho "mollato" anche quote, in questo momento; non tira aria. --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 23:27, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
Per quando avrai un momento allora ti conviene scriverti tutte le cose da una parte, senò ti scordi. Su quote, bahh, facessero come gli pare. Quando le persone si fissano con i preconcetti non c'è nulla da fare, mi dispiace. La cosa strana è che proprio Nemo, laureato in matematica va a dire che non si devono usare i template per le citazioni e quant'altro. Boh! Ha ragione chi dice che i matematici vivono nel loro mondo!

File:Decurtins - Rätoromanische chrestomathie, I.djvu[edit]

Sorry if my editing that file broke any of the work you had started at it wikisource... I would assume it would be no big deal to tweak the page numbers. It's generally considered 'best' to remove the Google cover sheets, since they essentially claim (with no legal basis) that the books can only be used for non-commercial purposes. Revent (talk) 05:49, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

@Revent: There are many it.source djvu files with the same trouble. Can you use DivuLibre library? There's a cleaner, simpler solution using it, I briefly described it at it.wikisource where I "pinged" you. Please avoid to delete front pages, use the "replace disturbing pages" trick if you feel the need of removing Google claims. If you can't use so far DjvuLibre routines, I could give you needed directives. It's a simple job (if you know how to do it!) --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 10:20, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
I was actually using that software (the djvm program) to remove the pages, so using it in another way won't be a big deal, I'll just have to read the manual to sort out exactly how. I replied to you 'over there', also. Definitely not interested in causing any drama with other projects that are using files, just really prefer not to have 'bogus' copyright claims displayed. On the English Wikisource, at least, the 'upload directions' specifically ask people to remove those cover sheets before uploading. Revent (talk) 11:56, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
here all what needs (you have to download DjvuLibre before) to replace Google cover sheats:
  1. download djvu file and open in into DjView
  2. using File->Save as create a djvu with needed number of pages (usually two); in the case of File:Dell'oreficeria antica.djvu I saved a 7-8.djvu file selectin from 7 to 8;
  3. now open a console and run djvm -d [djvu file name] 1 twice, to remove twice the first page;
  4. then run djvm -i [djvu file name] [djvu extracted file name] 1; done. --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 12:08, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
The problem comes from use of IA Upload tool, since it uploads from Internet Archive into Commons djvu files "as they are", and many books are loaded into IA from Google "as they are", IA doesn't cares about. --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 12:30, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
I had, actually, just figured out exactly that same method via Google, and used it to replace the specific file linked here (which is not actually the same one as the 'completed' transcription I'd mentioned over at itws). Thanks for letting me know that it's the 'best' way, however... I was messing with djvuextract for several minutes before I gave up and Googled it. More than happy to sort it out in a way that avoids breaking anything, sorry for the hassle. I had not been hunting them 'systematically', I just came across a couple while fixing something else over here, but now I know (and can fix it, or pass it along to other people).
(Edit conflict) Yes, I was aware that IA left the coversheets (and the watermarks, ugh) in, and that people get the files converted there. I have (in the past) gone to the effort of removing the watermarks from a Google Books file, but it's rather a pain, to be honest. Revent (talk) 12:35, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for these examples. They helped me to figure out how to add a missing page to a djvu file. Helder 18:35, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) 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. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.

Code issues in User:Alex brollo/Sandbox.js[edit]

Hi Alex brollo, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:Alex brollo/Sandbox.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 1 new jshint issue -- the page's status is now having warnings. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
  1. ISSUE: line 12 character 16: 'gallery' is already defined. - Evidence: var gallery="";
