Viscri fortified church[edit]

I saw your comment on the picture of the fortified church at Viscri. It is actually a church that is not easy to take a really good picture of. I have some on my picasaweb site, although not one I would nominate. I have plans to upload quite a few pictures from churches in Romania when I get around to it. It will be mainly from the wooden churches in Maramureș and the painted monastries in Bucovina. Haros (talk) 18:53, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

You're now a filemover[edit]

Hi Elekhh/Archive2, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, like InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • For guideline when to rename a file, please see Commons:File renaming and Commons:File naming.

Flicker problems[edit]

Hi Elekhh, a while ago you recommended me to use the Flifinfo tool. At first it worked fine but as of lately I have been experiencing problems with it and I can't find out why. For instance when I try to upload this picture, It won't upluad it. I get this message: "Warning: file_get_contents(http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:FlickreviewR/bad-authors&action=raw) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden in /home/www/kunden/ramselehof.de/wikipedia/flinfo/FlinfoFlickr.php on line 121

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/www/kunden/ramselehof.de/wikipedia/flinfo/FlinfoFlickr.php:121) in /home/www/kunden/ramselehof.de/wikipedia/flinfo/FlinfoOut.php on line 168" Any idea what is wrong? I seem to do exactly as I did when it worked fine.Ramblersen (talk) 11:33, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

The problem seems to be that it suddanly doesn't seem to choose a license automatically ("none selected") - which I guess is the whole point with using it. Still can't find out why though.Ramblersen (talk) 12:31, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Uploaded here. The problem was the "|" character used in the filename. --ELEKHHT 21:11, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

I hate to be so difficult but I jeep on getting the same fail message and have the same problem with all images. It does provide the "file info" and I save "the largest available size" but when I open the upload form, it doesn't seem to find the right "destination file name" (it writes its original Flicker name and not the name I have saved it under) and doesn't select any license. Very weird since I seem to be doing exactly as I did back when it worked just fine. Well don't thibk more about it if you don't recognize the symptoms and thanks for uploading the picture.Ramblersen (talk) 10:06, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Oh, indeed warning messages still come up. No idea what's wrong but I'm noticing that one can still proceed and upload despite the warning messages. When tested, the license has been imported, and there is no need to add another license, so the drop-down license menu can stay as "none selected". The destination file name could be edited. Should report this to the tool's creator. Nice too see your systematically improvements to the coverage of Danish arts. I see you still managed to do uploads, but if there is any which did not work at all just let me know. --ELEKHHT 21:33, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Need advice[edit]

What would be an appropriate English category name for these:

??? I have around a hundred more, and it's from just one town. TIA, NVO (talk) 18:26, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Very very nice images! Those are all window frames, and happen to be also made of carved wood. This is what google found for "carved wooden window frames" [1]. But I am not a native English speaker, neither specialist in architectural heritage --ELEKHHT 20:52, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm not quite comfortable with carved - carving disappeared from local crafts around World War II, and was replaced with jigsaw-only work. The window in the fourth picture was (again imo) made from stock, factory-made jigsaw pieces. Oldest-looking houses don't have any jigsaw pieces - but then this may be a fault of reasoning (they decayed faster then solid wood).
Take a look at this - amazing collection. The stuff from Krasnoyarsk [2] is quite a puzzle - there's an apparent Buddhist or even Japanese influence, and yet it does not show up in any other Siberian town. No one knows why. NVO (talk) 02:38, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

More upload troubles[edit]

Sorry to be so hopeless and trouble you again but now I am also having problems with non-Flicker images. When I use the new "upload wizard# which seems to have been implemented in the set up, I repeatedly get the message "Please make this title more meaningful" above the "title" spot in the form and the result is that it won't upload the picture. For instance with this image of Hvidøre House north of Copenhagen but it is whit any picture and any title I have tried (eg "Hvidøre vintage photo, c. 1900"). Any idea how to make title meaningful to Mr. Wizard?Ramblersen (talk) 12:38, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Maybe is some temporary bug as the upload wizard does not work right now on my computer. --ELEKHHT 14:45, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Aarh now commons is back to normal it seems. I suddanly got the Wizard directly when pressing "ipload file" on the main page but now it is its good old self. And thanks for fixing the nomination of the Hotel Astoria article, I see it has been up today.Ramblersen (talk) 18:44, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Um es nicht weiter ausarten zu lassen[edit]

Hallo Elekhh,

offensichtlich haben wir hier etwas unterschiedliche Auffassungen von dem was man sollte oder nicht. Ich bin der Ansicht, dass es zum guten Ton gehört bei besonders leicht zu behebenden Mängeln (zumal es sich hier auch noch um eine Auslegungsfrage handelt, ob es überhaupt ein Mangel ist) entweder selbst Hand anzulegen oder einen Bewertungsneutralen Hinweis zu vergeben. Dass Änderungen vollzogen sind, sind nämlich erstens über die Versionsgeschichte nachzuvollziehen und damit ist mit Sicherheit ausgeschlossen, dass hier jemand irre geführt wird, dazu kommt, dass bei QIC sowieso nicht genug Platz für uferlose Gespräche existiert was man sich ohnehin gleich von vorne herein schenken sollte. --Wladyslaw (talk) 13:21, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Promovieren ist aber nicht Bewertungsneutal, und dein Sicherheitsgefühl teile ich nicht ganz, aber sonst bin ich gleicher Meinung. --ELEKHHT 13:53, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Promovieren ist keine Bewertung sondern die Evaluation einer nach Regeln vorgegebenen Vorgehensweise. Deine wiederholte persönliche gefärbte Unterstellung und dein tendenziöses Dummstellen sind nicht Gegenstand für die allgemeine Diskussionsseite von QI. Deine persönlichen Animositäten interessieren keinen und ich werde weiterhin Bewertungen schließen wenn sie zu lange rumgammeln; ob meine eigenen oder nicht. --Wladyslaw (talk) 14:15, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Du verwechselst nun unterschiedliche Dinge: ich habe "promovieren" wie hier gemeint, dass weißt du ganz genau. Mit dem Rest deiner letzten Kommentar bin ich überhaupt nicht einverstanden, vielleicht überlegst du es nochmal. --ELEKHHT 22:26, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Ferrari[edit]

hello, why you have delete my image of Ferrari in Milan? --Serenato (talk) 17:05, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

The image was deleted because there was no conclusive evidence of its license, having been published on the internet prior to upload here, and hence the given date of creation was also wrong. In such cases COM:OTRS is required. If you think it was deleted in error please request undelete at Commons:Undeletion requests. --ELEKHHT 23:20, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Uploading problems[edit]

Hi Elekhh, you once gave me a link to this Flicker uploader but now it won't work for me. I keep getting messages like this one: "Cannot determine image ID from input http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2562/3706353018_6fdd3c085b_o.jpg" (with this image but it is a random example, it is the same no matter which image I try to upload even though the license is ok). This has been the case for quite a while now. Any idea what the problem is?Ramblersen (talk) 17:47, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

It works if you enter the main URL of the page "http://www.flickr.com/photos/smaedli/3706353018/" or only the image ID "3706353018". Cheers, and happy holidays! --ELEKHHT 22:12, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

You are probably right, and I am sorry. But the problems are worse than I could help much. And there are other forums I can participate without being brutalised, so I am simply choosing to work where I am not repeatedly assaulted, as I assume others do as well. Please don't blame me for that. I understand that given the French Wiki does not have an FP you are less inclined for other options. Maybe you can set up a "Gentlemen's FP", with very explicit rules to exclude those acting as barbarians (this is not to characterise anybody, only the actions of some). As I am continuing to work on Wikipedia inevitably will use Commons, but will avoid the QI and FP forums. I hope you stay strong and continue the good work. --ELEKHHT 13:10, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

File:Kyoto_Protocol_participation_map_2010.png[edit]

Hi can you recolor this map slightly:

109.130.144.44 10:20, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

I see no evidence that Japan or Russia would have withdrawn from the Kyoto Protocol, only that they are not participating in a continuation of it between 2013-20. So probably you are asking for a map to illustrate Post–Kyoto Protocol negotiations on greenhouse gas emissions. However as negotiations are ongoing in Qatar until December 7, I think is better to wait with the new map until the end of those negotiations. Also note that the map does differentiate between Annex I+II countries (with targets, dark green) and other countries (no targets, light green). The status of Cyprus and Malta is explained at List of parties to the Kyoto Protocol. --ELEKHHT 22:44, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm, so you mean that the lightgreen countries all have no targets ? Then the file description needs changing, I allready did this, look whether it's accurate (not sure on distinction Annex I and Annex 2 )

Kyoto Protocol participation map as of February 2012

  • Green (darkgreen, lightgreen) indicates countries that have ratified the treaty
    • Annex I & II countries with targets: dark green
    • Annex I & II countries without targets: light green
  • Grey = no position taken or position unknown
  • Brown = Countries with no intention to ratify the treaty
  • Red = Countries which have withdrawn from the Protocol.
