Lion Gardiner[edit]

Hi, I am writing a book that includes noted military engineer and Indian fighter Lion Gardiner. You have a very cool photograph of him that I think you took yourself.

Can I have written permission from you to use that photograph in my book?

I will give a photograph courtesy to you if you want, I'd really appreciate it if you let me use that photograph of his tomb in my book.

It wasn't mine. I just uploaded it to the commons. ----DanTD (talk) 21:03, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

category name[edit]

Someone recently created a Category:Wayside Park for my photos of the rest area in Hamilton County, Florida along US41. I think that category name isn't descriptive enough. If I was to follow my other naming conventions for rest areas in Georgia, I think the category should be named "U.S. Route 41 wayside park, Hamilton County, Florida". Also, they created a category called Category:Suwanne River boat ramp. Besides being misspelled, as I don't know how many other boat ramps could be along the Suwannee River, I think that category should be renamed "Suwannee River boat ramp (Hamilton County, Florida)". What do you think? --Mjrmtg (talk) 02:23, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

"Wayside Park" would make a great generic category for other wayside parks. I think I'm going to add it to that one on US 301 south of Coleman, Florida. ----DanTD (talk) 02:39, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Category creation[edit]

Hey, in general, I usually don't create a category for a railroad station unless it has at least three images on Commons (unless it's a former station that's a subcategory of a current station, in which case I'll do it at two to separate the historical images from the current ones). Cheers, Pi.1415926535 (talk) 22:52, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

That's understandable. I try not to do it myself. However with the recent crusade to obliterate the naming structure we had before on station articles, I had to do something. Any station with only one image, I tend to leave alone though. This is why I didn't make a lot of station galleries of LIRR and New York City Subway stations until I added more pictures on previous vacations. ----DanTD (talk) 23:09, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

MTA blizzard[edit]

I noticed that MTA released many snowy pictures and you sorted them by place, etc. Ought they also go in Category:January 2016 United States winter storm or more likely a not yet made NY subcat? Jim.henderson (talk) 03:36, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I think they should. But I wanted to concentrate mostly on sorting them in specific MTA divisions first. I ----DanTD (talk) 04:44, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
