Question[edit]

Hello, did you took the Henri Cernuschi picture in Musée Cernuschi ? It looks like the Antonin Carlès sculpture of Cernuschi, like the one kept in Strasbourg. Take a look : http://www.linternaute.com/musee/diaporama/1/7160/musee-alsacien/5/34697/buste-d-henri/

I am writing the article in French about Antonin Carlès, but I want to be sure where this sculpture is. 12 May 2008

Musée Cernuschi[edit]

Hello, I am PericlesofAthens. I like the pictures you took from the Category:Musée Cernuschi and I would like to use them in Wikipedia articles, but there is one huge problem which stops me from using them: you forgot to date your pictures! There's only a couple of them where you allude to at least the era they were made (such as "Warring Kingdoms" in the title for one bronzeware or another that said "Ming dynasty gilded bronze"). Could you please go back and properly date each item according to the era of Chinese history they were made? Thank you.--PericlesofAthens 16:48, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:Musée Nissim de Camondo - Bedroom (son).JPG[edit]

Hello, after verification on the museum guide, I confirm you that your picture "Musée Nissim de Camondo - Bedroom (son).jpg" is in fact related to the office (even if there is a bed). I corrected the french article on the museum, but I don't know how to modify the title of your image. Lycaonicus, 13 July 2008.

I apologize; I checked these with the Smithsonian Institute arts database and they are likely to be fine. I have since restored the images. howcheng {chat} 18:46, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

File:Arizona Biltmore - Wright sprite 3.JPG[edit]

Hi Daderot,
are you really sure these statues aren't still copyrighted? There is not FOP for statues in the US and the statues seem to from post 1923.--Túrelio (talk) 22:43, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Greetings! I am not an attorney, and alas cannot answer your question. I have received quite a few conflicting suggestions about statues in public areas in the US. Sometimes pictures have been removed, and then put back by the same person who removed them (cf Chester A. Beach, two items above this one). I will gladly learn from anyone who is an expert in copyright law in the US, and how it pertains to public statues. Cheers, Daderot (talk) 22:50, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, the basics are here. I'm also no expert for the US. I fear, to attract expert input we need to start a rfd, but not today. Good night.--Túrelio (talk) 22:53, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
Hello again! I have done a little googling (very little) and discovered this claim on the About.com website: "Now called the Biltmore Sprites, the Sprites of Midway Gardens were in a sense the lost children of architect Frank Lloyd Wright and sculptor Alfonso Iannelli. These geometric architectural statues were conceived in 1914 for the specific purpose of adorning and watching over Midway Gardens, once a center for premier entertainment, fine food and music on Chicago's lakefront." Of course, I cannot vouch for this statement, but if true, the statues date from 1914, and hence were 'published' before 1923. Cheers, Daderot (talk) 22:55, 5 February 2009 (UTC)


Cleveland Apollo[edit]

Hi! I saw your pictures of statues in the Cleveland Museum of Art. Have you got any pictures of the Cleveland Apollo? It's a very fine bronze sculpture of the Apollo Sauroctonus type (picture on the CMA website. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 16:22, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi Jastrow - Alas! I wish.... My apologies. Daderot (talk) 22:56, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
As follow-up.... I went back to Cleveland this fall, and took photos per your request, which I've added to the "Apollo Sauroktonos attributed to Praxiteles" category. cheers, Daderot (talk) 12:20, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Photo request: the bixi stele on Harvard campus[edit]

Hello, and Happy New Year!

I see that you've posted many good pictures from the Boston area, and in particular from the Harvard University campus, e.g. this one: File:Harvard-Yenching_Institute,_Harvard_University_-_statue.jpg. So I would like to ask if you have happened to ever take a picture of the "Chinese stele" located near Widener Library and Boylston Hall on that campus? The stele in question looks like this, and was a gift to Harvard University for its tercentenary anniversary (i.e., 1936) from its alumni in China. As far as I know, this is the only example in North America of a stele supported by a bixi - sort of a dragon-headed tortoise. The statue itself is much older then 1936 (from the Qing Dynasty), so there are no copyright issues. So if you have a photo of that monument in your collection already, or if you plan another photo trip to the Harvard campus some time in the future and don't mind hunting down that creature and taking a new picture of it, I would love to see it uploaded to the Commons and added to the collection at Category:Bixi! Thanks a lot, Vmenkov (talk) 12:16, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Delighted to do it. I've got some kind of photo somewhere, but I'll go retake some photos to show the various details. Then I'll add it to the Bixi category. Thanks for telling me about bixi - quite interesting! Happy new year, Daderot (talk) 20:41, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! Incidentally, the Harvard Magazine wrote in 2000 that they university covers this stele (as well as some other sculptures) for the winter to protect the marble from the acid rain... Don't know if that is still the case, but even if it is, the photograph of a covered monument would have a value of its own, too. Vmenkov (talk) 01:18, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Ok, done. I'll try to get some good pictures once it's unwrapped. cheers, Daderot (talk) 22:15, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! The wrapped stele actually makes for a rather interesting picture too; I've added it to the acid rain article. Vmenkov (talk) 11:19, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the new photos in Category:Bixi in Harvard University, too! I just saw them. -- Vmenkov (talk) 11:01, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Eubrontes photo request[edit]

I am working on a children's book highlighting cool places to visit in Connecticut, and one of those places is Dinosaur State Park. I would like to include the image you posted to the Eubrontes page in Wikipedia (Dinosaur State Park (Rocky Hill, CT) - close-up.JPG) in the book. Please confirm that this is okay with you, and let me know how you would like to be credited on the copyright page. My email address is liz@mightymedia.com. I'll look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Yes, of course. Please use that image in any way that seems good to you. There are no restrictions on its use, and no requirements for credit. If you do wish to give credit, please credit Daderot from Wikimedia. Sounds like a great project, and I wish you all the best! Daderot (talk) 22:52, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Richmond Avenue Methodist-Episcopal Church (Buffalo)[edit]

Hi Daderot ... I'm confused by your description on this image. According to the nomination form, this certainly appears to be the building listed on the NRHP as Richmond Avenue Methodist-Episcopal Church. Do you know otherwise? Did you just intend to indicate that it's no longer a church? --Sanfranman59 (talk) 05:35, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Sandfranman - I'm sorry to be so confusing! Obviously I've confused myself at least once in this process, so we'll have to take my current note with a grain of salt. At first I had believed that my photograph was of the Richmond Avenue Methodist-Episcopal Church. However, close inspection of various features in the NRHP document (eg, architecture of the tower, location of the tower in relation to the facades) seemed to prove that I was mistaken. Ultimately I concluded that this church was not the NRHP church, located at the Richmond Avenue at Ferry Circle, but rather a different but somewhat similar church, located 5-6 blocks away at the intersection of Richmond Avenue and Bryant Street. Google maps seems to bear this out: check out the street view for "richmond and bryant street, buffalo, ny". So that's what led to this rather confusing note to the image - my apologies! Hope you can help straighten things out. All the best, Daderot (talk) 21:20, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying. Based on the Google Maps street views, I think you're absolutely correct. Your photo is not of the church that's listed on the NRHP. The one by Pubdog on Wikipedia that's included in the Buffalo NRHP list as well as the article about the church itself is the correct photo. Thanks again and keep up the good work on the photos. --Sanfranman59 (talk) 18:47, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for uploading so many nice pictures from National Museum, New Delhi, India. I am trying to get some from flickr, but had no luck. Some of your pictures can be valuable additions to Hinduism-related articles on wikipedia. However, it would be easier to identify the subjects of your pictures if you add a short description of the subject as written on the plaque in the picture and categorize it according to the subject like I did in File:Stone sculpt 2 NMND-10.JPG etc. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 05:41, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind words! Yes, I do intend to add a short description to each picture - my plan (such as it is) has been to upload a number of photos, then go back and expand the description for each, plus add categories as appropriate. But it will probably take me another week or so.... with all best wishes, and thank you again, Daderot (talk) 13:56, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Please don't blank pages[edit]

Hi Daderot,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed you blanked Category:Murinan on Commons. If you meant for the page to be deleted, blanking the page is not the right way to do this. Please use {{speedy| type reason here }} and add it on top of the page you would like to have deleted; This way it will be placed on a special list that administrators check regularly for deletion. Without this it might take a long time before it's noticed. For redirects use #REDIRECT[[Target]] or {{category redirect|Targetcategoryname}}. Thanks again. –Krinkletalk 01:53, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! i have wondered how to do that, and very much appreciate your help! Daderot (talk) 01:55, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Please release photos of artwork with frames under a license[edit]

Hi Daderot, I noticed you uploaded some photos such as File:'Wharves of Boston' by Robert Salmon, 1829 - Old State House Museum, Boston, MA - IMG 6794.JPG using the {{PD-Art}} tag. PD-Art is intended for images acquired from other sources like books and websites - photos taken by the uploader should generally be marked either {{PD-old}} if they don't include the frame or with the license of your choice (CC0, CC-BY, etc) if they do include the frame (or other three dimensional elements). Among other things, this will avoid the need to delete versions including the frame. Thanks! Dcoetzee (talk) 01:55, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi Dcoetzee - I appreciate your note but do not (yet) quite understand what I should do. Personally, I do like to include the frames with old art, so viewers can (a) see the whole picture, and (b) see the distortion in the photo. So... should I be using something like CC0 or CC-BY for these photos? I think that's what you are suggesting, and I would gladly put all works in the public domain. Thank you! Daderot (talk) 02:48, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Hi Daderot - yes please use CC0 for photos including frames. I realise you have many uploads, but when you get the chance, please go back through your old uploads and replace the {{PD-Art}} tag by {{cc-zero}}, and remove the {{non-free frame}} tag if I added. This will ensure the version with the frame is not deleted. Thanks! Dcoetzee (talk) 03:33, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Dcoetzee! I continue to be baffled by how intellectual property laws work out in practice, but I will follow your lead. Thanks so much, and all the best, Daderot (talk) 00:30, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Template loop[edit]

Hi Daderot,

I suppose you are using a faulty template. Several pictures loaded up by you show a "template loop" that has to be corrected.--Dr. med. Mabuse (talk) 11:53, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi Dr. med. Mabuse - Yes, so it seems. I have been using the 'upload' page to upload multiple images, and that seems to cause the problem. It looks like it adds one additional 'self' layer for each time it is used. Perhaps I should submit a bug report.... with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 14:33, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Brussels Central station - IMG 4662.JPG[edit]

Dear Daderot, Thanks for uploading this image. However, it seems to me that it is mislabelled. Unless there is some mysterious corner of Brussels Central Station that I have never seen, this is not in the central station. My guess is Bruges, but could be wrong. Anyway, I will go ahead and relabel unless you object. thx, Peregrine981 (talk) 10:42, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Ah! my sincere apologies. I am sure that you are correct, and am sorry to have mislabelled the image. Please do go ahead and correct it. Thank you so much. Daderot (talk) 21:51, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Preserved specimens[edit]

Dear Daderot, I am just categorizing your pictures of preserved specimen to the species categories. Unfortunately for File:Preserved specimens - Kunming Natural History Museum of Zoology - DSC02413.JPG I am not able to read the label - is there any chance for you to handle with the original photo to get a slightly darker version where the label may be read?

Hello Achim! I am truly delighted that you are taking all this effort - many thanks to you!

File:Board of Trade Building, Kansas City, Mo. - LOC 4a13236a.jpg[edit]

Why did you upload File:Board of Trade Building, Kansas City, Mo. - LOC 4a13236a.jpg claiming that you took the photograph and listing yourself as the author? That is highly inappropriate. Please: BE HONEST. BE ACCURATE. If you have made similar false or mistaken statements in other uploads, please correct them. Thank you much. If you have questions about using Wikimedia Commons you can't find the answer to, ask. -- Infrogmation (talk) 18:32, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

I note you placed similar absurd falsehoods in the description of File:Country club, Kansas City, Mo. - LOC 6a07173u.jpg. Astonished, -- Infrogmation (talk) 18:33, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Hello! I am sorry indeed if I have somehow listed myself as a person taking the photograph. I hope I have made it clear that it was taken by the Detroit Publishing Co., c. 1906, and listed in the Library of Congress online database. I believe I have given a pointer to the reference information for these photographs. Although I have no trouble believing that I have made a mistake using the tagging tools, I think you have gone a bit overboard with the "please be honest", "false or mistaken statements", and "absurd falsehoods". Yours, Daderot (talk) 22:41, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Following up a bit, I see that I have listed the author for the second photo you mention as "W. H. Jones", which is what the Library of Congress states, and also that I have tagged both images as "This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1923", which I do believe is correct. Am I really claiming these as my photos? Daderot (talk) 22:44, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Ah, I see that you have corrected my upload tag, for which I thank you. However, I think you are again going overboard for noting the update as correcting my "insulting lies". Daderot (talk) 22:49, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Pardon if I went overboard. Certainly everyone makes mistakes sometimes. However when someone uploads images with statements that are very far removed from the truth, and then does not fix them, the result can be unsettling. Here is another image of yours I just noticed which you claimed to be the photographer of: File:Public library, Kansas City, Mo. - LOC 4a13244a.jpg I removed the claim. (If I was mistaken in this, and you were actually taking photographs in Kansas City 110 years ago, I beg your pardon and offer my congratulations on your longevity.) If I was correct in my assumption that your statements were false, please replace them with truthful information. If you have uploaded other images with similar cases of misinformation, I encourage you to correct them. If there are questions or assistance I might help with, please feel free to ask. Thank you. -- Infrogmation (talk) 18:01, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Recent uploads[edit]

For paintings such as File:Portrait of a Young Man, Bronzino, Florence, 1550-1555 - Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art - DSC08606.JPG (including a frame, thats an 3D object) please provide a license for the photographic work too, for example {{cc0}}.

For your photos of 3D objects such as File:Tazza, attributed to workshop of Pierre Reymond, Limoges, c. 1560 - Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art - DSC08638.JPG please provide a license, the pd-old maybe applies to the shown object but thats unimportant. What matters is the copyright on the photography, thats yours and that is unlicensed at the moment. --Martin H. (talk) 23:13, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Hello! OK, will do. I am constantly surprised by the rules for old art. It is certainly my intent to put my images into the public domain. with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 00:32, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
See COM:ART, no copyright for reproductions of 2D art, if there is something that is 3D in the photo a license/permission from the photographer is required. --Martin H. (talk) 00:40, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

the spetum pics[edit]

I'm not sure if I'm even in the right place. Everything is so confusing here. I have a question. The question is this: the picture of the spetum does it show the blade and the scabbard without the pole?

Hello! You are on the 'talk' page for one particular user (me). I did upload several photographs of one spetum. That spetum was folding, so it showed both the blade and the pole (it folded in the middle). The other ones - I don't know! with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 02:21, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi! I see that you have recently uploaded a few photos from Sŏul. Are you aware of freedom of panorama? Wikipedia Commons only allows pictures of South Korean architecture (buildings, statues and other things) if the architect, sculptor or equivalent died at least 50 years ago. Some of the buildings and sculptures on your photos look recent. --Stefan4 (talk) 00:17, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello! I do understand the general concept of freedom of panorama, but do not know the rules for South Korea. Of course the relevant national rules must be followed. with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 00:22, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Also note that outdoors artwork in Japan isn't allowed unless the architect died at least 50 years ago, but Japanese buildings are allowed. I saw a few Japanese statues among your uploads. Japanese outdoors artwork can, however, sometimes be hosted on Japanese Wikipedia under the okugai bijutsu template, with some restrictions. For example, the number of pixels may not exceed 310,000. There are instructions about this at Wikipedia:Okugai Bijutsu wo Hishatai to Suru Shashin no Riyō Hōshin (only in Japanese). --Stefan4 (talk) 00:37, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Good heavens! Remarkably complicated! I would prefer to just do "pure Commons" while trying to stay within all the different national laws. Thank you for your help, and all best wishes for the holidays - Daderot (talk) 01:55, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Murasaki Shikibu Diary Emaki[edit]

Murasaki shikibu diary.JPG

Hello! Do you by chance know what this image is? The source says that it is from 1503, while the original emaki is 13th century. Also this image has a fold (running vertically through Fujiwara no Michinaga), so it could be from a folding screen or rather from an illustration in a book!? bamse (talk) 10:26, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello bamse! A most interesting question, but alas I do not know. As an alternate thought, perhaps this is part of a long scroll, and the line comes where two pieces of paper are glued together? Unfortunately, I really know nothing about it! By the way, the maps that you have been contributing over the years are *wonderful*. with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 10:35, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Could be also glued papers, but why would they do that in the middle of a painting? Also the very right of that image looks strange to me (like a frame?). Thank you also for the many pictures of Miyajima/Itsukushima Shrine. bamse (talk) 12:25, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Old images of Charlestown[edit]

Just wanted to let you know: I'm going through old images to populate Category:Charlestown Elevated, including about a half-dozen postcards that you uploaded (possibly from here?). I'm correcting a bit of information on them; you're listed as the author rather than the uploader, etc. I don't want you to think I'm maliciously messing with your uploads or something!

Cheers, Pi.1415926535 (talk) 04:30, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

As you can see below, I did nominate one for deletion. Again, no offense intended: as it happens, I'd uploaded a larger but identical version from Flickr a few months back. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 06:26, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your note, and many thanks for straightening out my mistake - I'm certainly not the author of those images! I agree with your nomination for deletion, and have said so on the deletion page. Many thanks again, and happy new year to you! Daderot (talk) 09:52, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the seconding, and may your new year be filled with precisely your chosen style of reveling! Pi.1415926535 (talk) 23:54, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Misidentified images of Tolpis staticifolia[edit]

Hi Daderot, your two images File:Tolpis staticifolia - Botanischer Garten München-Nymphenburg - DSC07677.JPG and File:Tolpis staticifolia - Botanischer Garten München-Nymphenburg - DSC07678.JPG from the Munich Botanical Garden show mainly Dryas octopetala - the plants with the showy white flowers. A specimen of Tolpis staticifolia can be seen on File:Tolpis staticifolia - Botanischer Garten München-Nymphenburg - DSC07677.JPG if you enlarge it to full size. Unfortunately it is not very conspicuous, when it is not in bloom. It looks like this: [1]. So I suggest that both of your photographs should be moved to Category:Dryas octopetala, because Tolpis staticifolia is hardly visible. Best regards --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 21:47, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Robert - Thank you! I am not a botanist, and very much appreciate your help. I have changed the categories as you suggest. With all best wishes, Daderot (talk) 23:51, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Hi Daderot, you are welcome. I changed the descriptions of the images accordingly; I forgot to log in first, though. Best regards --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 11:51, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Robert - thank you! I'm very glad to have a knowledgeable person make things right. All best wishes, Daderot (talk) 12:32, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

American Star Bicycle[edit]

Can you tell me please if the American Star Bicycle you photographed is actually located in Smithville, NJ? Thanks. -AndrewDressel (talk) 15:54, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

No, it was not located in New Jersey. I took the picture at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation, Waltham, Massachusetts, where it was part of a temporary exhibit. Best wishes, Daderot (talk) 12:28, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

User:Daderot/gallery[edit]

Hi Daderot - could I suggest you split this up into about 20 separate pages, to make it more manageable? I wanted to re-link some images I'm renaming (identification), but the page is so huge that it crashed my computer. Thanks! MPF (talk) 11:56, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

My apologies for crashing your computer! Yes, I will gladly do that, and am delighted that you are tidying up some images. with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 12:03, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks! - MPF (talk) 12:32, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
I've taken a quick pass and broken out some of the older images. This is my first time doing such a thing, and unfortunately I lost the subgallery with the oldest images. Ah well; I do hope those were not ones you wanted to re-link... I'll keep at it, but right now have to go to work. Cheers, Daderot (talk) 12:44, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I will be very glad to do so. However, I don't know how to use Wikimail. Can you pass me a pointer, or tell me how? Best wishes, Daderot (talk) 11:32, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Great, simply mail to shop(at)denkmalschutz.de. Thank you!

The Hiker (both Kitson and Newman) as Spanish-American War memorials[edit]

You recently added Category:The Hiker (Kitson) and Category:The Hiker (Newman) to Category:Memorials of the Spanish-American War. Per Commons:Categories#For more appropriate categorization I don't think this is right. Those categories are for images of the statues, and although, to my knowledge, all of the installations pictured are Spanish-American War memorials/monuments, I don't think the statues in and of themselves are, nor am I confident that every installation of these statues is as a Spanish-American War memorial. Unless you have information to the contrary, I'm going to remove them from that category. However, I think it would be appropriate for images and/or subcategories of specific installations (e.g. Category:The Hiker (Spanish War Veterans Memorial)) to go into Category:Memorials of the Spanish-American War. Thanks, cmadler (talk) 14:45, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Greetings! I believe I understand your line of reasoning, and indeed it seems reasonable to me. Thank you for making sure that categories are well organized and tidy. With best wishes, Daderot (talk) 02:26, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Eagle Figure Pendant[edit]

Hello Daderot. Per Commons:Licensing#Scope of licensing, I was wondering if you could clarify the licensing for your photo of the Diquis Eagle Figure Pendant. You correctly list the object itself as public domain, but since it is a 3D object, you are entitled to separate copyrights over your photography (as there is some degree of creativity involved in photographing 3D objects). If you would like to release your own copyrights to the public domain as well, I would suggest adding a {{PD-self}} or {{cc0}} template under the {{PD-old}} template and marking what each corresponds to. You can see an example of what I'm talking about here. Hope that makes sense! Kaldari (talk) 21:13, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello Kaldari! Yes, I will certainly put my photo in the public domain. As might be clear, I am constantly confused about which licenses apply to which kinds of objects, but whenever possible do put my own images in the public domain. Thank you! Daderot (talk) 21:59, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Using one of your pictures in a textbook[edit]

I would like to include a cropped version (focus is on the hairdo) of your Zeus hurling the lightning bolt in Munich, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Zeus_lightning_Glyptothek_Munich_4339.jpg

in an architecture textbook.

Would that be OK with you? Also, would you still want it to be credited to 'Wikimedia:Daderot'? I could add any real name/contact/information you would like to add. Just in case, I can be contacted at thechabon [at] hotmail dot com. --Iiiiaaaa (talk) 15:38, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello Iiiiaaaa! First, let me say that I like your name. Second, yes, please go right ahead and use the image in any way that you wish. If you want to give credit, I would be very happy with 'Wikimedia:Daderot'. Thank you and best wishes - Daderot (talk) 22:00, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Your participating in voting[edit]

Dear Daderot,

I can see that you have uploaded some great pictures of the Steinway Alma-Tadema grand piano.[2]

I would kindly ask you if you would like to give your vote in this featured picture voting about a Steinway upright piano "Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Steinway & Sons upright piano, model K-132, manufactured at Steinway's factory in Hamburg, Germany.png" before it ends on 9 May 2012 at 01:58:26 (UTC). The rules says that there has to be at least 7 supporting votes and a ratio of supporting/opposing votes at least 2/1 (a two-thirds majority).[3]

Thanks!

Yours sincerely, --Hereiamfriends (talk) 18:19, 5 May 2012 (UTC).

Cycleron propinquus[edit]

Hello, I think that creb in image File:Cycleron propinquus, crustacean, Late Late Jurassic, Tithonian Age, Solnhofen Lithographic Limestone, Solnhofen, Bavaria, Germany - Houston Museum of Natural Science - DSC01801.JPG is Eryon arctiformis not Cycleron propinquus, an other Eryonidae. You can see clearly comparing with File:Eryon arctiformis Solnhofen Plattenkalk.jpg, both are very diferent, see also: Malz, H. (1976) Solnhofener Plattenkalk: Eine Welt in Stein. Maxberg: Freunde des Museums beim Solenhofer Aktien-Verein. Pages 45 and 46). Best regards, --PePeEfe (talk) 22:26, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Aha, most interesting! Unfortunately I have essentially zero knowledge of this field, and so simply transcribed the museum's description. It's quite possible that I made a mistake in my transcription, or they may have misidentified the fossil. Please do feel free to go ahead and change the title / description since you seem to have quite good understanding of these fossils. And my apologies for my mistakes! with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 22:30, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Fogg Art Museum[edit]

You've placed File:RHoffman-AEinsle-EineFrau.jpg into an engravings category. I don't mind, but the artwork is actually a lithograph. Perhaps the category should be renamed "Engravings & lithographs"? There are just 4 entries. Cheers, Easchiff (talk) 18:50, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Ah yes. Right you are. Maybe "prints" would be better? cheers, Daderot (talk) 22:55, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for my slow reply. I haven't found anything better than "prints", but the word suggests the reproductions in the giftshop. Perhaps "printed artworks"? There's a pretty good article on Printmaking, but it doesn't suggests a single word to cover the multitude of technologies for producing printed artworks.

Copyrights request[edit]

Hello,

I am writing on behalf of Fagbokforlaget publishing house, Norway.

We are currently working on a book about art, crafts, technology and design for higher education. The title of the book is Kunst, håndverk, teknologi og design (9788245012880). The foreseen print run of the book is 2000 copies. The book will be available on the Norwegian market only. The publication is planned to be released in April 2013. Authors of the book would like to use a photo of Louis Majorelle's Armchair. I have found the above mantioned photo here:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Armchair,_Louis_Majorelle,_1900_-_IMG_1639.JPG

We hereby ask for your permission to publish the above mentioned picture in our book in first edition and following reprints.

We would really appreciate if you could contact us via email: Anna.Sontowska@fagbokforlaget.no

Thank you for asking - I am delighted to give permission, and will send an email note to you as requested. With best wishes, Daderot (talk) 10:13, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Copyright Request[edit]

Hello Daderot,

I'm a grafic-designer and presently working on a stamp-design for the 300th anniverary of Christoph Willibald Gluck, the german opera-composer. In this connection I looked for good photos of his bust by Jean-Antoine Houdon. The one I found in your gallery which shows him nearly in profile is the one I like most. I would love to use it in my layout!

It is called: File:Christoph Willibard Gluck by Jean-Antoine Houdon.jpg Wikimedia Commons

Now my question is: would you give permission to do so?

And if – there are new questions: The german stamp-design is organised as small invited competitions by the financial ministry. A layout is only accepted, when we can make sure that the rights on all pictures are cleared up. First of all they want to know: of who's origin is the picture. Then it would be good if I have an e-mail in which you give the permission. In case my layout will be choosen for realisation the financial ministry will contact you for the payment of the right to use your photo.

Uff! Difficult all this bloody formalities, especially in a foreign language … ;)

It would be great, if you could contact me via e-mail: kommunikation@scholzkaren.de

RE: Thomas Biddle[edit]

What do you think you were doing?!? In all my years as a....OH WAIT...Wrong rant! LOL Reboot! Just a quick thanks for adding the very nice Biddle photo to the article. Much appreciated. Back several mos. ago when I expanded the article I'd intended to track down a photo/portrait but then my W.A.D.D. (Wiki Attention Deficit Disorder) kicked in and I got distracted on to other articles and forgot about it. Thanks, and have a great Wiki kinda day! Sector001 (talk) 15:04, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

You know, I was just admiring that article. It was interesting, well-written, and informative. Glad to add a picture, and thank you for your very kind rant! Daderot (talk) 15:08, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Winged Genie Photo[edit]

I noticed your great picture of the winged genie taken at the Nelson Atkins art museum, it is described obviously as a genie in your photo. I believe that it may actually be a photo of Shamash, a Babylonian sun god.

Hi there! thank you for your very interesting note. I don't know very much about these things, so what I did was to copy out the information given on the museum description next to it. It would not surprise me if you know more about this than the museum does, and you almost certainly know more than I do! with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 22:44, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

"Rubus pertritus", fotographed in 2012 at Botanischer Garten Frankfurt am Main is synonym to Rubus limitis Matzke-Hajek & Großheim in Matzke-Hajek 1996 (Corylifolii). Greetings Garden stuff FRT.

William Prentiss House photo[edit]

Hi Daderot ... First off, thanks for all of your great work out here on Commons and on Wikipedia. I'm just dropping you a quick note to let you know that this photo isn't of the William Prentiss House at 252 Gray St., Arlington, MA, but rather the house next door at 248 Gray St. MACRIS identifies the building in your photo as the Philip Everhardt House. I'm changing the description and re-categorizing accordingly here on Commons and will also remove it from the applicable articles on Wikipedia. Cheers! --Sanfranman59 (talk) 19:59, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Cincinnati Art Museum - Request[edit]

Hi Daderot, I see that you have uploaded several pictures of exhibits from Cincinnati Art Museum. I am not sure if you are from Cincinnati. But, if you are going back there again, can you please capture this exhibit? Thanks --వైజాసత్య (talk) 04:32, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

File:Michelia charlacea - Kunming Botanical Garden - DSC02906.JPG[edit]

Hi Daderot, Please could you check the name of this plant ? Le name Michelia charlacea is not listed by Flora of China or Kew Garden. Thanks for your help !--Pixeltoo (talk) 10:38, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi there! Thank you for your eagle eye. I'm not a botanist, so what I do is copy down the name recorded on the plant's tag. In this case, I have fortunately kept my original photo of the tag, and its binomial clearly reads: Michelia charlacea B.L.Chon. Looking up Michelia in www.theplantlist.org, which is now my usual way of checking names, I found this: "Michelia chartacea B.L.Chen & S.C.Yang is a synonym of Magnolia chapensis (Dandy) Sima". In short, there may be two errors on the tag: charlacea/chartacea and Chon/Chen. If so, this plant really should be Magnolia chapensis. I am not an expert, and hence not sure of any of this, but if you feel you understand things well, please go right ahead and fix as needed. My apologies for getting things wrong! And all best wishes for the New Year - Daderot (talk) 13:23, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok thanks, I m not expert of this genus but I think you're probably right. Thanks for your help ! Happy new year to you too !--Pixeltoo (talk) 13:42, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

File:Acer tsinglingense - Morris Arboretum - DSC00499.jpg[edit]

Hi Daderot - do you know which this is, please? Acer sterculiaceum subsp. franchetii and Acer tsinglingense are treated as separate taxa by the Flora of China. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 10:11, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi MPF! I'm a fan of your work, and you know considerably more botany than I do. Since I am not a botanist, I use theplantlist (Kew et al) as my source of taxonomic information. Thus the tree was tagged Acer tsinglingense by the Morris Arboretum, but theplantlist considers this to be a synonym. Here is a pointer: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/kew-2616602. Personally, I don't have any dog in the taxonomic fight, and would be happy with either classification! with all best wishes, and please keep up your great work - Daderot (talk) 20:26, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks! Before you replied I checked them against the drawings in Flora of China, and they match Acer tsinglingense perfectly while differing from Acer sterculiaceum subsp. franchetii, so the Morris Arb have it as what I already expected. The Plant List is still in an early stage and full of numerous errors and odd results, so I reckon it is best to go with the Flora of China and accept them as different; I'll remane the files accordingly shortly. - MPF (talk) 19:30, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
Done! - MPF (talk) 08:50, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Notice of upload removal[edit]

Dear Daderot:

The Wikimedia Foundation (“Wikimedia”) has taken down content that you posted at File:View of Niagara Falls in Moonlight, Herman Herzog, 1872 - Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA - DSC03997.JPG due to Wikimedia’s receipt of a validly formulated notice that your posted content was infringing an existing copyright. When someone sends us a validly formulated notice of copyright infringement, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Section (c)(1)(C) requires Wikimedia to take the content down, and to notify you that we have removed that content. This notice, by itself, does not mean that the party requesting that the content be taken down are suing you. The party requesting the take down might only be interested in removing the content from our site.

What Can You Do?

You are not obligated to take any action. However, if you feel that your content does not infringe upon any copyrights, you may contest the take down request by submitting a ‘counter notice’ to Wikimedia. Before doing so, you should understand your legal position, and you may wish to consult with an attorney. If you choose to submit a counter notice, the alleged copyright holder can either refuse to contest the counter notice or decide to file a lawsuit against you to restrain Wikimedia from re-posting the content. Please note that Wikimedia will not be a party to any legal action that arises from you sending a counter notice, and that Wikimedia is unable to provide you with legal advice.

Filing a Counter Notice

If you choose to submit a counter notice, you must send a letter asking Wikimedia to restore your content to legal@wikimedia.org, or to our service processor at the following address: Wikimedia Foundation, c/o CT Corporation System, 818 West Seventh Street, Los Angeles, California, 90017. The letter must comply with DMCA standards, set out in Section (g)(3)(A-D), and must contain the following:

  • A link to where the content was before we took it down and a description of the material that was removed;
  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
  • Your name, address, and phone number;
  • If your address is in the United States, a statement that says “I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the district where my address is located, and I will accept service of process from the person who complained about the content I posted”; alternatively, if your address is outside the United States, a statement that says “I agree to accept service of process in any jurisdiction where the Wikimedia Foundation can be found, and I will accept service of process from the person who complained about the content I posted”; and finally,
  • Your physical or electronic signature.

Pursuant to the DMCA, Wikimedia must inform the alleged copyright holder that you sent us a counter notice, and give the alleged copyright holder a copy of the counter notice. The alleged copyright holder will then have fourteen (14) business days to file a lawsuit against you to restrain Wikimedia from reposting the content. If Wikimedia does not receive proper notification that the alleged copyright holder has initiated such a lawsuit against you, we will repost your content within ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days.

Miscellaneous

As a matter of policy and under appropriate circumstances, Wikimedia will block the accounts of repeat infringers as provided by Section 512(i)(1)(A) of the DMCA. However: The Legal team has made a determination that they do not believe this takedown counts as a strike against you.

If you would like to learn more about Wikimedia’s policies, please refer to the Wikimedia Terms of Use, available at Terms of use, and the Wikimedia Legal Policies, available at m:Legal/Legal_Policies. More information on DMCA compliance may also be found at:


Wikimedia appreciates your support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding this notice.

Thanks for uploading so many good photos[edit]

Hello. Thanks for uploading so many good photos about National Museum of Nature and Science, Tokyo.--BunBun-J (talk) 05:30, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi BunBun-J. Thank you. It is an extraordinary museum, isn't it? I am sorry that many of my photos are not so good, and I hope someone else can do better. I've noticed that you are adding categories to the photographs - thank you so much! You are doing an amazing amount of work, and it makes a huge improvement. I still have a few more left to upload to the commons, which I will probably do within one week. I particularly like the seaweed collections at the museum. with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 21:44, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

"Artefacts"[edit]

Here and elsewhere, I wonder about the term "artefacts". Seems very condescending, especially for a work attributed to a particular artist. Would we ever use that term for a comparable work of a European or European-descended artist? - Jmabel ! talk 16:20, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I'm really not sure what to call such a category, and certainly do not intend to offend. Please do go right ahead and change the category names, and I will fit into whatever you have selected. with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 17:39, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
I think the problem may be the very existence of a single category that embraces both mundane objects and even the highest art of a culture. Contrast, for example Category:Art of France vs. Category:Clothing of France vs. Category:Crafts of France vs. Category:Products of France. I'm not sure what would be the correct solution, but I'm pretty sure that people would be appropriately offended if we lumped all of those under a Category:Artefacts of France. (Also, separate question, why "artefacts" rather than the normal English "artifacts"? Is there a distinction I'm missing or is this just wrong/foreign spelling? Trying to get some clarity before I bring this to the Village pump, which is probably where we should try to build some sort of consensus.) - Jmabel ! talk 21:15, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Hello again - As may be apparent, I am somewhat at a loss how to deal with these objects. I am taking photographs of items in museums ranging from objects such as mortars/pestles to objects that are very well painted/crafted but do not seem to be intended as artwork for contemplation. Clothing seems easy enough, as do (for example) baskets, and so I just use those categories when appropriate. For what it's worth, I've been wrestling with these questions in museum displays of objects from Africa and North America recently. And finally, I use the spelling "artefacts" because the highest level Commons category (Artefacts) is spelled that way, not because I have any agenda. As I say, just trying to fit in.... but sometimes it's not so easy.... cheers, Daderot (talk) 23:11, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll use this discussion as a basis to pose a question at the VP. Feel more than free to weigh in there. - Jmabel ! talk 05:37, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and it turns out that artefact is the more common UK usage, which means it's a perfectly acceptable form of the word. I'm from the U.S., but I've spent enough time in the UK that I'm rarely surprised by these differences, but in this case I was. - Jmabel ! talk 05:41, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Dear Liné1 - I greatly admire your work, so am happy to have this opportunity to interact. First, I would be very happy if you transformed the categories as you suggest; that would be a great improvement, in my view. Unfortunately I do not remember why I created those categories in the first place, but I do feel that your changes would be a major improvement. With my respects, and all best wishes, Daderot (talk) 13:16, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

I am pretty sure[edit]

that the sculpture Fountain of Eternal Life (wikipedia link) [4] are copyright violations. I added simlar pictures to the article in 2006 and they wee removed as violations in 2008. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 20:55, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi there Einar (aka Carptrash)! Hope all's well with you. Here's the investigation I did, which I put into the images that I uploaded: "According to the SIRIS record, the fountain was cast in 1962 and dedicated on May 31, 1964. There is no mention of a copyright notice in the description and thus it is assumed to be public domain in the United States by virtue of being published without any such notice." So it could be copyrighted, but I didn't find any evidence that it was. If not, the appropriate license tag would seem to be: "PD-US-no notice – any work first published without copyright notice prior to 1978." But I sure don't make any strong claims here! with all best wishes to you, Daderot (talk) 21:04, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
I am not intending to make an issue, I just am a bit pissed off (not at you, your pictures are a vital part of describing the work) because I had maybe hundreds of pictures removed during the first wiki copyright police blitzkrieg years ago and I still can't post something without all sorts of folks showing up, wanting to argue. At that time the need for pre 1973 (or whatever) copyrights to be renewed was not known, at least not by me, so I did not have that line of defense. Also, having been part of the Save Outdoor Sculpture! project back in the early 1990s - the results of which became much of the SIRIS database - I know that a lot of information, such as copyright marks were missed. It being particularly difficult to examine fountains. And so life goes on. Carptrash (talk) 20:52, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Dear Carptrash - I know, it's EXTREMELY annoying, a pretty clear case of "guilty until proven innocent". Worse yet, things get deleted before one gets back to the wiki, and that's that. On the brighter side, however, over the years I've taken quite a few photos of public monuments and statues, and have always been pleased to see that "you have been here" before me. It seems that there are only a few of us who are really into having such great public statues in our cities and towns. I didn't know about the Save Outdoor Sculpture project - is anything like it still going? with a tip of the hat and all best wishes, Daderot (talk) 22:18, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
The SOS project is, I believe, still going on and is looking for folks who are willing to survey sculpture. It is an interesting way to get your work put into the Smithsonian. They are not fussy about picture copyrights, I've talked (written) to them about it and so far no artist has wanted pictures of his or her work removed. I suspect that wikipedia would get the same results but are choosing to take a different route. It is a good feeling to know that someone has noticed my footprints through wikipedia's coverage of American sculpture, and yes, there are not a lot of us. Carptrash (talk) 23:04, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

National World War I Museum[edit]

Hey, I just recently noticed this category of images about items in the World War I museum: Category:Weapons_in_the_National_World_War_I_Museum. Are you a local to the KC area? We had an event at the World War I museum recently: see the page on En Wikipedia. Let me know if you would like to participate in future activities, Sadads (talk) 15:32, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Sadads - Thanks much! Unfortunately I am half a continent away. It's a really great museum - one of the best around - so I'm very sorry indeed to miss the activities. All best wishes to you, and thank you so much for the kind invitation - Daderot (talk) 22:39, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

User:Daderot/gallery[edit]

Hi Daderot - your gallery User:Daderot/gallery is so gigantic that it made my computer crash when I tried to open it to update a filename. Could you split it into about 20 separate sub-page galleries, please. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 23:15, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi MPF - I've just deleted most of the gallery, as it was automatically created by some upload tool and I don't want it. Hope this solves the problem for you. with best wishes, Daderot (talk) 12:03, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

File:Hawk by Soga Shohaku - Museum of Fine Arts, Boston - DSC02748.JPG[edit]

I saw you uploaded this file. I am sending you this message to encourage you to add valid SOURCE and AUTHOR information to it, as well correct its COPYRIGHT information, all of which have been entered incorrectly. The "Source" field should indicate where you got the image (a web page? A book? Did you actually take the photo yourself?), the "Author" should be the name of the artist who created the painting (which is not you), and since you are not the copyright holder of the painting, you need to use a different public domain copyright tag such as {{PD-Art}} or one of its derivatives. It's a beautiful image— please make sure that it gets the correct file information! Thank you! KDS4444 (talk) 23:44, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your note! Yes, I did take this photograph myself; that's why I labelled it "Source: Own work". The original artist is Soga Shōhaku; that's why I labelled it "Hawk by Soga Shōhaku (曾我蕭白) (1730–1781), possibly created in 1763". I am not sure exactly what I am doing wrong, but am always glad to mend my ways. cheers, Daderot (talk) 23:48, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Oops, I definitely forgot
Public domain This work is in the public domain in the European Union and non-EU countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years or less.

German thermite incendiary bomb[edit]

I hope you don't mind my contacting you. I am the curator at the National Museum of Flight at East Fortune in Scotland. I am currently working on a major redevelopment which will see two of our hangars restored with new displays inside. I am working on the interpretation and am seeking images for our aircraft and other objects as well as a timeline of aviation technology.

We would love to include your superb photograph of the German incendiary bomb at the National World War 1 Museum in Kansas City. I assume under the terms of use you are happy for us to use this image, but I want to check the wording of the acknowledgement you would like us to use. Would you like "© Daderot" or your real name, or something else. If you could email me at i.brown@nms.ac.uk to let me know, I will make sure we use your preferred form.

Done. Thank you for your kind words, and congratulations on a very fine museum. Daderot (talk) 11:54, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Image license for Natural History Museum of Utah[edit]

Please change the creative commons license for all images taken of Natural History Museum of Utah exhibits. You are incorrect that the museum allows "photography without restriction". As per its stated policies (https://nhmu.utah.edu/policies): "Photography and videography by our gallery visitors is encouraged. However, all media created by visitors must be for personal, noncommercial use only."

Therefore, any images of exhibits at the Natural History Museum of Utah should be posted to Wikimedia using a CC BY-NC creative commons license.

I am very sorry about that. I have no argument with the policy, and clearly I was mistaken about it. Right now I am traveling but when I am back home and have a block of free time, I will make the corrections. My sincere apologies. Daderot (talk) 19:29, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
