Hi Dedalus. I like what you did with nl:Afbeelding:Creil-OG-20.JPG at Category:OG28-08-2005. That's a neat idea! The only problem is that you scaled the photo down at the same time. I think I'll go stick an {{ifc}} tag somewhere. dbenbenn | talk 14:01, 1 September 2005 (UTC)

Also, do you have any reason to think the photo is licensed under cc-by-sa-2.5? It's tagged as GFDL at NL. dbenbenn | talk 15:59, 1 September 2005 (UTC)
I purposely scaled it down - that is allowed within both GFDL and CC-BY-SA. I uploaded only pieces cut out of the original - and tagged a double license on it - the upload page recommends the double license for "own work". Finally - the pictures I uploaded are only used at: nl:Wikipedia:Ontmoeten/Plaatsgevonden#Groepsfoto.27s , the third picture which is another assembly of the two dozen pictures I uploaded, however with another ingenious application of templates: if you click on a head you will arrive at a user page. Isn't that nice? If you don't like the pictures here - license problem or so, just hit the delete button if you are a sysop and scare away as many people from commons as you like. Bye. Dedalus 22:27, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
Well, I am an admin, but of course I won't "just hit the delete button ... and scare away as many people from commons as you like". Although it is allowed to scale down images, we generally only want the largest possible photos. If you'd be willing to fix that, great! Otherwise, someone else will. Also, you don't get to relicense photos that don't belong to you. You didn't take the picture, did you? I'd appreciate if you'd remove the {{cc-by-sa-2.5}} from the photos (or ask the author to release under that license). I'll fix it eventually if you don't. Cheers, dbenbenn | talk 23:56, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
The license is now GFDL on all the 23 picture fragments I uploaded. I understand you like to view at an unscaled picture. Please look at Image:Creil-OG-20.JPG, the unscaled picture at commons. Please read carefully what I've written at Category:OG28-08-2005 before you do anything stupid. Dedalus 08:23, 5 September 2005 (UTC)
Don't worry, I won't do anything stupid. I uploaded the full-resolution version of Image:Creil-empoor!.jpg. Note that the display at Category:OG28-08-2005 is exactly the same as before. There was no need for you to scale the picture: MediaWiki can do it automatically. dbenbenn | talk 16:11, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

Commons talk:Reusing content outside Wikimedia[edit]

Did you mean for this edit to go on Commons talk:Reusing content outside Wikimedia or on its talk page? The edit looks like commentary. Davidwr (talk) 15:16, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

It is a commentary - as is usual in legal pleadings - on a substantially misleading guidance to readers, that is plainly and utterly false, which can be interpreted by anyone who can read english, and takes due notice of the original text which was ad verbatim copied in my commentary. In know way am I going to whitewash a previous misleading guidance to readers by copyediting the guidance to another guidance. I rather like to expose the original author or authors - which frankly I am not aware who that might be as I didn't research that so far - in his or her or their act to disinform and mislead the public. Not to say the original advice can only be interpreted as detrimental to the mission of the WMF. Of course I encourage anyone to publish aggregate works under a free license, but I don't have the power nor the will to enforce that. If you belief my commentary should be merged or restyled Template:So-fix-it. Enjoy your day. Dedalus (talk) 20:35, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah. The general practice on non-discussion pages is to either put commentary on the talk page or to edit the original so it is accurate. not-logged-inuser.230.4 21:13, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah, ah. Edited the article dear not-logged-inuser. Dedalus (talk) 15:27, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Dedalus!
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.

Hey Ad, ik zie dat dit bestand is overschreven door een andere foto, dat is niet de bedoeling. Is de OTRS alleen van toepassing op een van de twee foto's? Zal ik ze weer van elkaar scheiden? Is een van de twee een auteursrechtenschending? --Vera (talk) 14:09, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
