Cheese images[edit]

Hi, I noticed you uploaded a number of cheese images from PDphoto.org. Thanks. However, next time you upload some images, please remember to give them more descriptive names (his default file names don't tell us much), put in a better description (instead of just "Cheese", you could at least specify the type of cheese), and give a direct URL to the page containing the image (rather than just "PDphoto.org"). Thanks so much. howcheng {chat} 23:16, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Elezione amministratori/Requests for adminship[edit]

Ciao Broc, ti scrivo a proposito di questo tuo intervento. In serata l'utente in questione è passato su IRC e ci ha chiesto spiegazioni possibili per il tuo gesto, dopo aver scoperto che sei italiano. In effetti non ha contestato tanto il tuo gesto, quanto la completa assenza di motivazioni che hai addotto. Puoi immaginarti il suo stupore, quando, dopo essersi assicurato di non avere mai avuto contatti di alcun tipo con te, si è trovato un voto contro (peraltro in spagnolo) e privo di una qualsivoglia indicazione. Se tu potessi fornire chiarimenti, sia noi che l'utente in questione lo apprezzeremmo molto :)


Hi Broc, i'm writing you regarding your intervention on this page. This evening the user in question came on our IRC channel and asked for explanations about your behaviour, as he previously found out that you're italian. In fact, he didn't question your choice, but the absolute lack of reasons you left. You can easily imagine his astonishment when, after being sure he's never had any kind of contact with you, he saw a vote against him (even in spanish) with no reasons. If you could please clarify this, both we and the user above would be very glad :) --Emc2 21:29, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Donc, per il voto in spagnolo io avevo scritto semplicemente {{contro}} e credevo fosse in italiano... La motivazione del mio parere sfavorevole è che ha fatto così pochi edit negli ultimi mesi che non mi sembrava adatto a fare l'admin. tutto qui... e poi, sono per forza tenuto a dare spiegazioni sul mio parere??? Bye

About the vote expressed in spanish, I just wrote {{contro}} [italian for "against" NbEmc2] as I thought it was in italian... The reason for my vote against him is that he made so few edits within the last months that I don't think he's suitable for the sysop role. that's all... besides, am I really forced to give explanations for my opinion??? Bye, --Broc 11:28, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
Negative, you are not required to give explanations, but I want to live up to your expectations and I only asked to know what was your reasoning so I could improve myself. Thanks for your reply. --Cool CatTalk|@ 21:04, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Ciao Broc,

il seguente materiale che hai caricato non è libero e quindi sarà cancellato:

Image:Penguins 5 bg 010101.jpg

Wikimedia Commons (questo sito web) ospita soltanto file multimediali che possono essere usati per qualsiasi scopo, incluso:

  • l'utilizzo in qualsiasi lavoro, indipendentemente dal contenuto
  • la creazione di opere derivate
  • l'uso commerciale
  • la distribuzione libera

Vedi Commons:Licenze per la politica sul copyright di Wikimedia Commons. Altri progetti Wikimedia potrebbero avere politiche differenti; per esempio, la Wikipedia in lingua inglese consente il fair use di suoni e fotografie. Questo non è il caso di Wikimedia Commons: il materiale "in fair use" non è accettabile qui.

Per favore, assicurati di caricare solo materiale creato da te stesso, senza copyright o del quale possiedi le necessarie autorizzazioni che consentono di utilizzarlo per tutti gli scopi descritti precedentemente. Di nuovo, per favore leggi Commons:Licenze, che è davvero cruciale per capire come funziona Wikimedia Commons. Grazie per il tuo contributo e ti prego di lasciarmi un messaggio se hai ulteriori domande.


Hi Broc! You have uploaded the following pictures from http://pdphoto.org/ :

They are not PD as you claim. They are provided under CC-by-NC-SA which is incompatible with Commons, therefore I must delete them. As said on the main page, PDphoto.org is not really a repository of true public domain photos, despite the name. It contains pictures whose license is incompatible with Commons.

Please keep in mind that you must provide:

  • a (helpful) description
  • a valid and exact source URL (PD-photo.org is not sufficient)
  • an author (Jon Sullivan I guess - PD-photo.org is just a repository)
  • a license that matches the actual picture license (check it)

Could you please check your previous uploads of PDphoto.org pictures and 1. ask the deletion of those that don't conform to Commons policy; 2. complete the description of those that do?

Thanks. — Xavier, 13:39, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Ok, thank you for the warning. I uploaded some images of PDphoto.org alot of time ago. Are they in PD or not? --Broc 14:08, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
I did not check all the pictures you uploaded here. I only checked all the PDphoto pictures of penguins and all (but one) were not PD and, therefore, were speedy-deleted. As said above, it'd be kind of you to check if the other PDphoto pictures you uploaded are PD or not. thanks. — Xavier, 15:10, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

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, Broc!

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

Nuovo metodo...[edit]

Ciao Broc! Non ricordo se ci siamo già incontrati, io lavoro su it.source.

Stiamo rastrellando il ns Indice per convertire i file "a pagina singola" in jpg in file "multipagina" (pdf o, molto meglio, djvu) e l'ultimo Indice da sistemare è quello che deriva dalle immagini raccolte qui in Category:Nuova edizione aumentata e riveduta dell'unico metodo accelerato razionale per imparare a parlare, leggere e scrivere la lingua tedesca. Il problema è che sembra che manchino alcune pagine finali. Puoi dare un'occhiata? Se mancano davvero, ce la faresti a completare il caricamento, e poi ci penso io a risistemare il tutto? Grazie! --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 12:41, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

A una seconda occhiata, potrebbe anche essere che il libretto finisca veramente a pag. 34,e che ci fosse semplicemente un errore nel file Indice su Source, che puntava a inesistenti pagine 35-40 (l'ho corretto). In questo caso siamo a posto! Fammi sapere! --Alex_brollo Talk|Contrib 12:48, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Patroller ![edit]

Hi Broc !

You now have the Patroller right and may call yourself a patroller ! Please take a moment to read the updated Commons:Patrol to learn how Patrolling works and how we use it to fight vandalism.

As you know already, the patrolling functionality is enabled for all edits, not just for new-page creations. This enables us to keep track of, for example, edits made by anonymous users here on Commons.

We could use you help at the Counter Vandalism Unit. For example by patrolling an Anonymous-edits checklist and checking a day-part. There is a short video tutorial which addresses some things you may not know about.

If you have any questions please leave a message on the CVU talkpage or ask for help on IRC in #wikimedia-commons. — Tanvir | Talk ] 14:36, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

File:MicrosaveLogo.png[edit]

I removed the speedy deletion tag you placed on this image and re-tagged it at {{PD-text}} and {{trademark}}. Given that this image is composed entirely of text, it is not eligible for copyright protections and thus is acceptable on Commons. --Hammersoft (talk) 13:56, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Your duplicate POTY vote reminders[edit]

Could you please actually check that somebody votes twice and not just assume so by looking at their contribution log? You know, it is just one more click to see the difference between two versins and then you see if somebody really voted twice (or more). Does this look like I took a second vote to you? Sorry, but saving yourself the one second it requires to actually confirm that another user made a mistake causes just my (and probably other users too) anger at being accused falsely. -- Cecil (talk) 15:24, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like.
