Hello, Christian Ries!

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.

Gruss[edit]

Wüstenpflanze
Blüte

Hallo Christian, es macht Freude, deine wohlkomponierten und illustrativen Bilder zu betrachten. Schade, dass du zu deinem exzellenten Kamerabody ein so schlechtes (im Weitwinkelbereich) Objektiv hast, ich hoffe, du nimmst mir nicht übel, dass ich hier einiges verändert habe.

Ich sehe, dass du als Doktor-Agronome ein Spezialist für Pflanzen bist. Vielleicht kannst du mir helfen, diese beiden Büsche zu taxieren, denn davon habe ich keine blasse Ahnung:

Vielen Dank zum Voraus, --Ikiwaner (talk) 17:12, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Ikiwaner, besten Dank für die Verbesserung des Fotos. Welches Objektiv würdest Du denn empfehlen? Bei der wunderschönen Wüstenpflanze weiss ich leider nicht worum es sich handelt. Ich könnte allerdings die Fotos weiterleiten um das herauszufinden. MfG, --Christian Ries (talk) 10:01, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Das wär natürlich toll. Für eine QI-Nominierung ist die Taxierung notwendig, ausserdem interessieren mich die Hintergründe dessen, was ich fotografiere. Liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz --Ikiwaner (talk) 18:30, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
A propos Objektiv: Ich benutze das EF-S 17-55 und schätze daran, dass es bei 17mm (Architektur, Panoramas) praktisch frei von CA und Verzeichnung ist, trotzdem kann man Zoomen und es kostet weniger als ein L-Profiobjektiv. Der Nachteil ist, dass ihm Namibias Wüsten gar nicht bekommen, es ist nicht so sanddicht wie ein L-Objektiv. Alternativ eignet sich das im robusten Gehäuse verpackte Tamron SD 12-24 für Panoramen. Ich benutze es allerdings weniger, weil es weniger scharf ist als das obige Canon. Panoramakönig wär wohl das Canon EF 14 II, aber der Preis... --Ikiwaner (talk) 23:36, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Martin H. (talk) 20:18, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Please forward the written release to COM:OTRS, the same image can be found at http://www.ukzn.ac.za/cca/images/tow/TOW2006/img/Agualusa/7agualusa.jpg, so permission is required. Also please correct the author information, that was already wrong for the first upload as it is not own work. --Martin H. (talk) 20:20, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry I answered so late, the photo is available online at the following address: http://www.agualusa.info/cgi-bin/baseportal.pl?htx=/agualusa/div&fname=ze_0010&page=fotos&lg=en&cs= . It's from there that I took the photo (I am the webmaster of this website) with the authorization of José Eduardo Agualusa. The author is Jorge Simão, who made these photos for public relation purpuses. --Christian Ries (talk) 16:05, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Ferraris-Lizenz[edit]

Moie Christian op enger ongewinnter Plaz. Ech hu grad gesinn, du hues de Ferraris-Kaarten-Ausschnëtter d'Lizenz "PD-self" ginn, dat heescht, du häss déi selwer gemoolt...

Well Lizenze nëmme vun deem, dee se vergëtt, geännert kënne ginn, misst Du se, ier en anere sech dru stéisst (a se vläit geläscht géif) an "PD-old" (d.h.: Domaine public, well Copyright ofgelaf - de Ferraris ass ëmmerhi schonns iwwer 2OO Joer dout) ëmnennen.

Bescht Gréiss,

--Zinneke (talk) 11:57, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Merci Zinneke, ech änneren d'Lizenz da bei alle Kaarten. --Christian Ries (talk) 12:52, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
  • PD-self doesn't mean the underlying work is from you. It's perfectly ok to publish a scan or photograph of a PD work under any license, as long as you make a distinction between your work and the original source. Otherwise those licenses would be useless; no photographer could ever publish his photographs of old castle ruins under PD-self for instance, as he didn't design/build those castles... Also remember that publishing those maps as PD allows anyone to use them as they see fit without giving any credits. Cheers. -- Bjung (talk) 06:20, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

I added the following explenation to the image: "The author of the self-portrait José Eduardo Agualusa asked User Christian Ries to upload this file under the license CC BY-SA."

This seems to be a never ending story. Why do you give yourself so much time to react here? Why do you just give me only 7 days? This is voluntary work and you stress people. This is really motivating... --Christian Ries (talk) 11:36, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

The permission seems fine, you just need to forward it to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org
Then a user from OTRS will add an OTRS-tag to the image and everything is ok.


My above notice is a standard text. I categorize most self-portraits and I came across this upload.
When the script added the notice, I didn't notice that you already received one for other images. Apparently Martin H. left you the same some time ago.
We require an OTRS tag for uploads outlined at Commons:Permission#Where_OTRS_confirmation_is_necessary and yours seem to qualify. Thus, nothing personal. --  Docu  at 12:22, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't understand from the above if there remains something to do or not. --Christian Ries (talk) 12:36, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
There are several possibilities:
  • If you have an email from the copyright holder similar to this, forward it to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org
  • If you don't have, request the copyright holder to send one to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org
  • If the copyright holder doesn't use email, ask him to sign the text, scan it, and send the scan to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org
Hope this helps. --  Docu  at 14:31, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, it will be done, but perhaps it will need more than 7 days. --Christian Ries (talk) 06:43, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
