Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, Baseball Bugs!

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").

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.

Autopatrol given[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted.

Alexander Liptak[edit]

Hi Baseball Bugs; Alexander Liptak has seen Anonmoos message and has removed it. Please don't restore it again. Thank you, Walter Siegmund (talk) 03:57, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

While I appreciate the idea of your fascination with me, I hardly think I deserve it (same goes for the other editors so interested to gossip about me). Please avoid me in the future. Alexander Liptak (talk) 10:48, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
If you behave yourself, you shouldn't hear from me again. Although socking at wikipedia was not in your favor.[1][2]Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 11:23, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
An IP address is not a sock. Also, it is not socking to sign into your account after the system has logged you out to add your proper signature. Avoid me, stop stalking me and stop turning every mundane occurrence into some zealous Crusade. Alexander Liptak (talk) 17:25, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
You're wrong on all counts. Your future here depends completely on your own behavior. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 19:14, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Foo[edit]

While lurking, I noticed you were participating in an AN thread on the English Wikipedia.

As I'm blocked from editing en.wiki (some retarded IP block, don't these people know what collateral damage is?!), I thought I'd send this to you here.

Errors in transfers[edit]

Hi!

I just noticed that the files you transfer get a broken description page. Example File:Harold_Baines_1986.JPG. It has a lot of #'s. I have recreated the information with http://toolserver.org/~magnus/commonshelper.php [3].

I do not know what the problem is but you should not move more files untill the problem is fixed. Perhaps you could usee http://toolserver.org/~magnus/commonshelper.php instead. We can also transfer the files for you if you just give us a list or a category to move. We just need someone to check the files after the transfer. --MGA73 (talk) 22:05, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

I think I've finished the file moves. I reckon I'll have to look at each one and see what the CommonsHelper screwed up. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 05:06, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

User:ItsLassieTime...[edit]

Thanks for information! Anyway we have to add copyright templates to user talks, even if they are off. Herr Kriss (talk) 23:23, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Please review your argument[edit]

You argument here appears to be out of commons' project scope. Please review it and make it clearer.--Amore Mio (talk) 10:04, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

More specifically, that argument is for why it qualifies for fair use. Great for English Wikipedia - and many of the other Wikipedias. But Commons doesn't accept fair use images under any circumstance. Free only. Wknight94 talk 21:11, 3 May 2011 (UTC)
I had somehow missed the fact that the illustration was at Commons rather than Wikipedia. I think the issue has been resolved now at Wikipedia. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 11:00, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

-mattbuck (Talk) 17:01, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Given the circumstances, I wear this as a badge of honor. :) As regards the allegations of incompetence on the part of Commons operators... My answer is these two words: Alexander Liptak. The way the Commons operators botched that situation destroyed any faith I previously had in the competence of the operators here. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 17:03, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
I don't know who Alexander Liptak is. I will remind you however that deletion requests are forums for community discussion when you're not sure about whether something should be deleted. If someone is certain an image needs to be deleted, they will either tag for speedy deletion, or do it themselves if they're an admin. Deletion requests are where people are unsure. -mattbuck (Talk) 20:23, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
If the deletionist had bothered to look into it, he wouldn't be unsure - but of course taking the time to do that would interfere with his need to delete stuff, and that's par for the deletionist course. And if you don't know who Xanderliptak is, maybe you could bother to look into that also. He abused commons for a year and then bullied them into getting his way, by issuing bogus legal threats to the clueless "leaders" of commons. Once that happened, I concluded that the leaders of commons were incompetent morons. I haven't seen any evidence since then to challenge that conclusion. Why I continue giving you my personal photos from time to time is anybody's guess - maybe it's because I think they might be useful in wikipedia. It's certainly not because of any desire to do any favors for commons. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 20:36, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi and welcome to Commons, Bugs. Pretty funny Mattbuck telling someone else not to be a dick. Too bad he does not take his own advice. Malcolm Schosha (talk) 11:21, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

It's just a further example of the Commons operators living down to my expectations. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 12:18, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Camp fire.jpg Grown man's feet 1.jpg

Aw, BB, while standing for excellence is honorable, and sometimes you may get blocked for it -- I certainly know that! -- blocks themselves are just blocks, some are for good cause, some not, but they all have the same effect and all have the same real cause: some admin was moved to push the button.
I suggest that there may be a bit of "attitude" behind the application of that quote. Is your goal to "get to" people, i.e., to irritate them? I can tell you that it's very tempting to blame project problems on "them." You know, the "bad people." The logical consequence will be that you will be relieved of the burden of editing the project involved, after all, we would not want to force you to associate with "bad people." Wouldn't that be cruel?
It took me years to figure out that I was beating my head against the wall with Wikipedia, but the problem there is not "bad people," it is defective structure that creates roles that people play, roles that are incompatible with the goals of the project. I've been blocked many times, and about half the blocks were at least reasonable. When banned, I started socking, of course, and the ordinary blocks were fine, they were expected and consistent with policy, even though the edits themselves were harmless or better (as shown by how they were subsequently handled, often). Range blocks, an edit filter to prevent me from self-identifying when self-reverting (simplifying ban enforcement) which then caused more collateral damage, and even revision deletion for harmless or even positively helpful edits, those were not fine, they violated policy, not just the guideline w:WP:RBI. But everyone makes mistakes. Big deal. I'm having more fun on Wikiversity than you can imagine.
Good luck. --Abd (talk) 16:55, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

{{unblock|Block should be expired by now, but I'm still blocked. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 00:10, 10 August 2011 (UTC)}}

I think it was a leftover autoblock which I lifted. Try now. Wknight94 talk 00:38, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Hmm[edit]

You were right, of course. It is rather hypocritical that the people saying the older images don't prove permission but are allowing recent porn pictures shows that there is a gap in rationale and reason. Ww2 claims that there is a burden of proof on the uploader, but there are literally thousands of images of different women taken from flickr galleries that can't possibly be the person who owns the gallery nor proof of any ownership. Your statement of these not being found anywhere is far more proof than what passes around her.

Welcome to Commons. What more can I say? Ottava Rima (talk) 02:49, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

I find Commons to be uncommonly weird. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 06:00, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Is it any less hypocritical, nonsensible, brutal, and illogical than any other project? Here you have all people as "equals", which means that those who would not deserve to have power have power. Then you strip away having to face another person and recognize their humanity, and the anonymity inspires words and actions that people would be unwilling to have characterize them irl. The ganging up on others, the inability to recognize that someone may have a point, etc., is no different than barbarians or of a culture that lacks culture. Sure, there is a claim of "civility", but more often than not it is used as a weapon in the most incivil way to justify actions that would be unacceptable irl. It is a word of censorship and abuse, instead of a word of peace and calm. Of course, when "love" is redefined as sex, and porn is the dominant marker of this culture, then there is no ability to truly appropriate another person with dignity and respect. The only exceptions are those you consider part of your "group", which emphasizes the barbarity even more.
You pointed out a problem. You were rightfully upset, and others should have been upset. You made a strong case. Of course you were ignored, then blocked, then pushed to the side. Such behavior is the disease of the internet. People throw around claims of incivility, unability to cooperate with others, and the such, but those same people are unwilling to or unable to truly love another human being. If they were, they would be unable to act in the way they do and find that pushing anyone to the fringe, ignoring them, etc, is something truly unacceptable. It is kinda sad that there are more people who ask for sympathy to be given to murders than there are who ask for sympathy for a person who merely upsets the wrong person on the internet. Those who cause true harm are rewarded while those who seek honest, truth, and trying to make everything the best it could be are tossed away. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:44, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Kansas City Municipal Stadium plaque.jpg[edit]

Its a derivative image which is a picture of a picture that someone else created for the Municipal stadium...and the flickr owner than took. The flickr license should have neen ARR. That other person would have the rights. I had the same problem once: I took a picture of a picture in a museum of a photograph (of a modern 1990's singer) that someone took...and I received this DR notice that the first photographer owned the rights. I just infringed on his/her rights by taking the photo, assuming I owned the rights and licensing it freely. So my upload was deleted after 7 days. Something like COM:DW Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:03, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Do you have a better version of File:Antenna tree.jpg?[edit]

Deutsch | English | Español | Suomi | Français | עברית | Magyar | 日本語 | Македонски | Nederlands | Polski | Português | Svenska | Українська | +/−


Thank you for your submission of File:Antenna tree.jpg. While all submissions are useful, do you think you might be able to supply a better quality version of the same, or similar, content? In many cases, the largest and highest resolution possible is the most useful version to have available. (MediaWiki has automatic resizing functionality, so there is no need for multiple versions of the same image at different sizes, users can select any size and the software will generate and cache the needed resolution on the fly.)

If you can supply the same exact image as File:Antenna tree.jpg at a larger resolution (or media at a higher bitrate, etc.), please just upload it over the original, users will get the new higher quality version with no further effort on your part. If on the other hand, the content is only similar, it is best to select a new image name, as there may be uses already where some aspect of the existing media was key to the usage. In the latter case, if you can provide a crosslink reference to the new image in the older one and vice versa, that will be extremely helpful.

Again, thank you very much for your contribution, it is appreciated.

--Saibo (Δ) 20:52, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Maybe you could rename it by appending its upload date to it? That would get around the potential for duplication. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 05:08, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Xanderliptak[edit]

I said that because filing a DCMA takedown involves swearing in a copyright case (thus federal law) that something was used without your permission when you know that it went there because you put it there; that's obviously perjury, which is a federal offense if committed in a setting where federal law applies. Nyttend (talk) 15:28, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Presumably because nobody particularly cared about the images enough to file a counterclaim. You've still broken the law if you swear falsely under oath, regardless of whether you get caught. If I remember rightly, X's images were poor-quality coats of arms, which are substantially easier to replace than good-quality photos of sportsmen in action; as such, we had a lot less to lose and a lot less reason to file a counterclaim. Nyttend (talk) 04:25, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
