My apologies[edit]

I do try to take care when processing CAT:CV, but the above two files slipped through. I would be deeply sorry to be the cause of your retirement, and hope you reconsider. Storkk (talk) 09:49, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

The Espy[edit]

Hi, I didn't mean to offend by cropping your photo. I wanted a good shot of The Epsy for this section. I cropped yours so the hotel is recognisable at thumbnail level. If this is a problem then I'll go with a different image. Cheers. - HappyWaldo (talk) 08:03, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

@HappyWaldo: whether it was my photo or not COM:OVERWRITE exists for a reason. Use Commons:CropTool, which will allow you to not just crop but upload under a new title and the information will also be added. Bidgee (talk) 09:14, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
I wasn't aware of the crop tool. Thanks for sharing. - HappyWaldo (talk) 04:12, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

File:Tang Dynasty circa 700 CE.png requires updating[edit]

Hi Bidgee,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed File:Tang Dynasty circa 700 CE.png is out of date. the Soviet Union has split up, Korea is divided, Bangladesh is not West Burma and Afghanistan exists Could you update it? Thanks again. Geographyinitiative (talk) 23:09, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

I’m not the uploaded. Though any update should be uploaded as a new name/title per COM:OVERWRITE. I’m also won’t be getting involved in creating a map, ask the original uploader. Bidgee (talk) 23:47, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

South Sudan border[edit]

Hello.

There is an edit war going on in both maps, but if it is allowed, could you add the border of South Sudan in these two maps?

I am adding South Sudan (as well as Montenegro and other possible missing updates) in the PNG and GIF maps in Category:Maps needing South Sudan political boundaries and then remove this category after updating them. There were close to 1100 maps since I started to update these files on 1 March 2018, now it is reduced to less than 500 maps, but there is a long way to go.

Yours sincerely, Maphobbyist (talk) 19:33, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Hello.
Can you add the border of South Sudan in File:Wikimedia chapters existing and regional user groups.svg, File:Wikimedia chapters.svg, and File:Wikimedia chapters existing.svg? I have no knowledge about SVG files, and therefore cannot update them.
The war torn country where the internet is haphazard, has no Wikimedia chapter or regional user groups. So the color for the country is gray. Even the Dinka Wikipedia from South Sudan is barely active.
Yours sincerely, Maphobbyist (talk) 09:00, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
Not high on my list of things to do, since updating my OS, I no longer can use 32 bit software. When I can see value in purchasing a subscription for the software I know (there are freeware editing software but I'm not trained in using them) how to use, I will do it.

Help[edit]

Hello, this is the first time that I upload images from Flickr to Commons and I have doubts how I can adapt the images, as I transferred some images [1][2][3] whose creator was Queensland State Archives, which is linked to the Australian government and the images were put in the public domain, what kind of information is still needed, could you help me? For example, what I need to do in this image? Bruno Ishiai 10:32, 1 August 2020 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ishiai (talk • contribs) 10:32, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't think they are in the public domain per "E Commonwealth, State or Territory owned2 photographs and engravings" {{PD-Australia}}, so it would be in the public domain in 2036. Since the "Public Domain" is "Public Mark", something Commons user disagree with being "Public Domain". Bidgee (talk) 07:44, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
