Thank you for your images on Commons and on flickr[edit]

A huge thank you for all your image uploads to Wikimedia Commons and for the generous licensing of your images on your flickr account! The images truly add a value to the Wikipedia articles which they illustrate. Some images are outright stunning. I look forward to seing your future images and hope you will receive the recognition I think you deserve. --Bensin (talk) 21:23, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi! You have uploaded a 1991 prized photograph by Alberto Garcia of the Mount Pinatubo eruption (http://albertogarcia.ca/28/mount-pinatubo-1991-eruption/), probably by mistake - Possibly it was in exposition at São Vicente caves, madeira Island, and you photographed it?

I photographed it in the Sao Vicente caves. If it violates anything, please feel free to delete it.Bengt Nyman (talk) 16:48, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
It's a derivative work, so it had to be deleted due to Alberto Garcia's copyright. But no worries, it happens every time. :) -- Darwin Ahoy! 23:27, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Nobel prize 2015[edit]

Dear Bengt, thank you for your pictures of the 2015 Nobel prize laureates, they are highly valuable. Just to improve the descriptions, what kind of an event was this? Was it the "get together" at the Nobel museum (as the nobelprize.org site says)? This kind of information helps a lot to understand the story behind a photo and makes it even more valuable in encyclopedic sense. — Yerpo Eh? 07:38, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

I noticed you've uploaded File:DIMG 7792 (2561709488).jpg and I thought I should draw your attention to a common error. Please give uploaded images meaningful names. Otherwise they are difficult to track and it is hard to tell what the image is about without actually looking at it. I suggest you rename your image with an intuitive name that describes the image itself. Thanks, and happy editing!

Steinsplitter (talk) 14:15, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

I noticed that you uploaded hundreds of files from flick'r with generic filenames, you have to give them all better names. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:25, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
+1. By giving random names, you give work to others. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:15, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
In addition, you need to check the usefulness of the files you upload. Not all files under a free license on Flickr are suitable for Commons. Files need to have an educational purpose. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:24, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
Wikimedia Commons is on the wrong track when it comes to the purpose of file names versus file descriptions. There is a industry world standard here which Wikimedia Commons presently violates. I agree that there are a lot of poor quality and non-educational images uploaded to Commons, but I do not see any effort on behalf of Commons to enforce an "educational purpose" which probably should be an administrative "No Thank You" effort rather than a user choice.Bengt Nyman (talk) 15:53, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
If administrators wish to se the original file description without having to open the image page I believe it would be better if the upload tools were designed to display both file name, description and file size under the Commons thumbnail, just as it presently lists file name and file size. Bengt Nyman (talk) 23:19, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
You have to follow wikimedia commons standards and policy's, the American Society of Media Photographers is not relevant at all and has zero influence to wikimedia commons. This is community approved, please also read COM:OWN and COM:POLICY. We don't change policies just because a single user (or the American Society of Media Photographers) believers that they are wrong. I have nothing further to add here, because it leads nowhere. --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:05, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Final recommendation: The blacklisting of common camera file names to satisfy Wikimedias policy about descriptive file names is an impractical solution to the problem. I am suggesting that a Wikimedia filename can be made descriptive WITHOUT LOOSING the trace-ability provided by the original file name. This simply requires adding a description as a prefix to existing filename. I am recommending updating for example flickr2commons with the choice "Add prefix to every filename: [ ]". This will save serious users a lot of time, preserve the file trace-ability and eliminate the negativism of blacklisting. Bengt Nyman (talk) 19:40, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Recommendations[edit]

Wikimedia Commons present blacklisting of camera filenames creates an impractical user work-flow.

The long term solution would be to restructure Commons upload tools to where original filenames would be left intact but augmented by a brief description to be shown with Commons image thumbnails, while a more complete description would be shown as present on the image page.

A temporary solution would be to offer a batch-file-renaming feature as part of Commons upload tools.

The present blacklisting of filenames places a barrier in the way of Wikimedia Commons ability to attract quality images. Bengt Nyman (talk) 09:10, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons in error[edit]

The following resites recommendations of the American Society of Media Photographers:

File naming is an important component of file management. Here are the basic rules and recommendations.

Follow basic computer system rules for file-naming.

Use unique file names for each image.
Avoid incorporating job names or descriptions in file names.
Append file names to distinguish originals from derivatives.
Apply file-naming system consistently.
Never use multiple names for the same image file.

Wikimedia Commons' present practice to demand descriptive file-names unnecessarily violates several of the recommended ground rules for file-naming. Since this is demanded by Wikimedia Commons for the convenience of image administration it would be better if the above rules were respected and that Wikimedia Commons image thumbnail engine(s) were updated to display the requested information, such as image description or part thereof, without violating accepted rules and good practices for file-naming.

Category moves[edit]

Hi Bengt Nyman, When requesting category moves could I ask you in future you provide valid reasons, Here you only put "3" which means nothing to me (or anyone else),
Usually I decline those if the template's been set up incorrectly or no valid reason was given (It was your lucky day today :) ),
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 11:04, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

I used the recommended command: [{move|new_name|numeric rationale|additional reason}] (use to change the name of a category). 3 is the numeric rationale, Correction is the reason in english for your convenience. See: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:File_renaming. If this is no longer the correct command for requesting to change/move a category please direct me to the right one.

Probably not. The quality is good. We don't know if they are in use outside Wikipedia/Wikimedia and we don't want to put external reusers at risk. Jcb (talk) 21:34, 5 March 2017 (UTC)
I thought that reusers external to Wiki had to download, if they wanted a copy of an image.
That's not necessary. But even if they do, what if you decide to change the license at Flickr and then start accusing the reusers of copyright violation? It would be difficult for the victims to show that you are wrong if we delete the files from our servers.

Hej Bengt! Jag kanske kan räta ut några frågetecken. Skillnaden ligger i det avbildade verkets upphovsrätt. Till skillnad från Mona Lisa skyddas nutida verk av upphovsrätten. För att sprida och licensera avbildningar av nutida verk krävs därför tillstånd från det avbildade verkets upphovsrättsinnehavare. Att det inte finns några skyltar med fotoförbud eller andra restriktioner spelar ingen roll. Det krävs inga särskilda skyltar eller meddelanden om upphovsrätten för att upphovsrätten ska gälla. LX (talk, contribs) 18:31, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
That means it becomes a question of how old the peace of art is, compared to when generalized copyright went into effect. Maybe you know ? Bengt Nyman (talk) 22:03, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
If I'm not mistaken, this particular painting was created in 2013. The copyright term in Europe is typically 70 years after the death of the author (the painter in this case), so a work from 2013 is obviously going to be copyrighted for many decades. LX (talk, contribs) 22:26, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Wiki Science Competition 2017 closes on December, the 15th[edit]

Logo for Wiki Science Competition.svg
Hi, "Wiki Science Competition" 2017 has started

It is a world event.
The upload phase in Asian, American and European countries without juries ends on December 15th. In Africa two weeks later.
Here you can find more details.

This is a manually inserted message for commons users who are also globally active or who have uploaded images related to the competition's themes (science buildings, microscopic images, scientists, wildlife...).

Twitter Logo Mini.svg #WSC2017 #WikiScience #WikiScience2017

Linkedin icon.svg Wiki Science Competition

You can use a tag for pictures uploaded after November, the 1st. Some countries upload forms are closed, but if the image is related to an open challenge, you can uploaded it there, it's not rigid. Country level division is also to provide some prize, but it is based on good sense.--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:56, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Image problems[edit]

Several of your recent uploads are not complete. Maybe you are being too hasty with large files, so they need to be uploaded again. Then change the "flickrevieweR 2" tag to {{Flickrreview}} (with the curly brackets) to get the bot to try again because it cannot see the flickr image based on an incomplete upload. Thanks. Ww2censor (talk) 15:51, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

I have heard that this is a recent and known problem with flickr2Wiki uploads. I have no control over how fast this process works. I updated one of the images only to get the same result again. I believe this is a flickr2Wiki bug that needs attention. Bengt Nyman (talk) 16:16, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Hi Bengt. I don't suppose you can recall when you took this great photo. See File talk:Sunset over Kanholmsfjärden, Sweden - panoramio - Bengt Nyman.jpg. -- Chris j wood (talk) 10:39, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Category:La Bohème (Metropolitan Opera 2014)[edit]

There are a lot of photos of operas indicating you as the author. Have you really been in the opera house and taken the photos? Or have you just captured them from a television or computer screen? -- Robert Weemeyer (talk) 08:51, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

I was commissioned by the local government where I live to capture transmissions from the Metropolitan Opera and publish these images electronically. Upon later legal scrutiny the same body decided to end capture and re-publication of these images. Even if this capture had been done first hand in the Opera House, republication is according to current regulations not advisable. These images should all be deleted from Wikimedia Commons or archived. Thank You. Bengt Nyman (talk) 10:53, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Kastellet 5249 (9098147985).jpg[edit]

Hi Bengt. This is a duplicate of your File:Kastellet Vaxholm June 2013 - panoramio.jpg cross-loaded by a different route. The camera locations on the two images differ, but comparison of the image with Google Maps suggest that the camera location on the other image is correct. Hence nominating this one for deletion. If you would prefer the other one kept instead, then please say so on the discussion page (below).

Finding something?[edit]

Hi Bengt - I've just had 3 emails saying you can't find something? What can't you find? - MPF (talk) 22:37, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

you moved or recategorized some beach birds of mine. Bengt Nyman (talk) 22:56, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
That will be some files where the species was misidentified, which I renamed with the correct species. If you look at the 'missing' file name, it will tell you what it has been moved to. I find it odd though that you can't find them, the wiki software will have renamed them in your contributions list. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any further queries - MPF (talk) 23:20, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
Found them; they are Larus fuscus (note the bright yellow legs, and slender bill), not Larus marinus as originally named:
MPF (talk) 23:31, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, however I was referring to: "MPF moved page File:Surf Calidris minutilla 4541 (3119002868).jpg to File:Calidris alba, San Diego 4541 (3119002868).jpg without leaving a redirect: identity) (undo | thank)." However, thanks to my own User Categories I found them this morning. Question: When an editor moves an image I get a message, I click on the link to the new file, but the image NEVER appears. How come I always have to go to Commons and search for it? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP Bengt Nyman (talk) 10:24, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Of "I click on the link to the new file, but the image NEVER appears" - I really don't know why that has happened? You should be able to see it with the link to the new name, it is very strange that you can't. It sounds like a software bug to me, it might be worth asking on the MediaWiki notice board? - MPF (talk) 14:53, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
This (link not showing the new page) has been going on for over a year, I just have not bothered reporting it. Thanks. Bengt Nyman (talk) 16:35, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
Very odd! I just looked at one of the old filenames, and it said "28 September 2018 MPF (talk | contribs | block) moved page File:Surf Calidris minutilla 4541 (3119002868).jpg to File:Calidris alba, San Diego 4541 (3119002868).jpg without leaving a redirect (identity)" - the link to the new name working OK. Clearly the bug doesn't happen for everyone; I can see it would be extremely annoying when it does happen! MPF (talk) 17:44, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Neither of these three shots are Panoramas in the sense of being composed by several individual photographs. They are all single photographs taken in a public place of a public building and cropped to highlight the object in question. I am aware of the customs in Morocco where snake handlers and street entertainers expect to be paid for photographs of their way of making a living, however, I am not aware of any general rules in Morocco prohibiting the photography of the outside of a mosque. There were no signs posted on or near the property prohibiting the photography of this subject. I see no reason to prohibit or delete these three photographs.

This media was probably deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Norrberget NZ7 1919 20 (49658876672).jpg, was missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. The file probably has been deleted. If you've got all required information, request undeletion providing this information and the link to the concerned file ([[:File:Norrberget NZ7 1919 20 (49658876672).jpg]]).

If you created the content yourself, enter {{Own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

I was able to find the source and correct two of your other images (File:Norrberget NZ7 1914 15 (49666091827).jpg & File:Norrberget NZ7 1924 25 (49664120372).jpg) but not this one. --Elisfkc (talk) 18:53, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. All three files were deleted from Flickr by mistake and later uploaded again by myself with cc logo Attribution 2.0 Generic (CC BY 2.0), the same license as all my other photos. Bengt Nyman (talk) 19:54, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Category:Princess[edit]

I think Princess is probably a bad name for this category, as it's quite generic and is bound to fill up with all sorts of other detritus. Perhaps you could include the boat's ID number or something? -mattbuck (Talk) 23:07, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Agreed, requesting change to Princess boats. Bengt Nyman (talk) 23:29, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
