Cape Verde[edit]

All the Photos i have uploaded were made by myself with "paint". I just forgot the status, how can I change this now? --Monsieur Caresse 15:35, 29 April 2006 (UTC)


What information you wish? It´s a figure of 1200 a.c. I´m new here. I´ll get information about the photo, just a moment!

SVG requests[edit]

Re: many of your SVG requests (such as Image:Cross-Fourchee-Heraldry.png etc.) -- in most cases, I provide the PostScript vector source right on the image page, so the SVG is almost there, but I'm not uploading actual SVG files unless <title> elements are taken off of the ban list. I filed a bug-report over a month ago ( ), but nothing has been done on it, and I'm not sure where else to complain... AnonMoos 19:41, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Nope, the TITLE elements are there precisely because I want them to be there (not to mention that the SVG standard recommends that they be there -- look at bug 4388 again...) AnonMoos 23:44, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
Technically, by posting the SVGs on the image description page you have released them under the GFDL, entitling others to remove these elements if they so desire. But this may be in bad faith. Deco 04:25, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
Actually, I posted PostScript vector source code on the image description pages (not quite the same thing, though a conversion between the two is not difficult with the proper tools). AnonMoos 15:33, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Знамя Победы[edit]

Is the original image that was not altered? If so, can I upload this? While I am at it, I want to create an article about this banner at EN Wikipedia, but I want to know if Image:Victory banner.svg is correct. Thanks. Zach (Smack Back) 02:30, 11 February 2006 (UTC)


Hi Eugene. I see you (quite rightly) tagged quite a few of this user's images as {{unknown}}. Did you think to leave a note on this user's talk page? They have uploaded dozens of pictures now, and really should have been stopped and made to understand the Commons requirements, before uploading so many. Also marking a change like that as "minor" and not putting an edit summary, is not very helpful. If someone has legitimate pictures but just doesn't understand what information to put, we should give them as much chance as possible to get it right before deleting their images.

Now, this user, I'm not sure about. some of their contributions are quite strange (like this one - licensed under Creative Commons by who, I have to wonder?). But some could be legitimate. But I guess we won't know until they start explaining where the images are from.

Anyway, thanks for your time. I hope you will take this message in a friendly way, as it is intended. cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 06:47, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

I'll do this when I'll have time. --EugeneZelenko 15:22, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Video from the Kremlin website[edit]

Hello. I understand that we have a template for images from the Kremlin website, I think it is called {{}}. While it works for images, I wonder how it will work for videos or video clips. The reason why I ask is that I want to take some clips from a video released by the Kremlin website of Putin's 2006 New Years Address. In the video, Gimn Rossii plays and there are shots of the RU Presidental standard and of the Russian Flag. I want to use those clips on the article on the Russian hymn on EN. Can I do that or no?

Album covers[edit]

Hello. I appreciate the efforts put to keep the licence politics. But what is the case with the album covers. I have upload the same images like those in english wikipedia [1] and [2] , but have not been able to find suitable template for that kind of licence in commons. Is it possible to keep them or not in commons under some licence. Please, explain since there are promotional.--BloodIce 08:51, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, was on the point of doing it but you beat me to it! I have to say the Commons is a bit hard to navigate at present - some things are listed by category, others on specific topic pages. Makes it a bit confusing. My images are being uploaded principally to go in Wikipedia articles. — SteveRwanda 16:19, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

OK, sorry. It was published in en Wiki into GFDL, so it's why I uploaded it here into GFDL-en. Sorry, I didn't know it was a trademark. Delete it, if you want to. Greets, --Odder 11:52, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Hi, Eugene, how are you? (about:Manuel Quintana)[edit]

Hi, Eugene, how are you? Hope you're doing fine. I was writing a translation to Portuguese about Manuel Quintana when I've found, in his image (at [[image:Manuelquintana.jpg]]) an information of "unknown copyright status". When I saw the copyright tags available, I'd thought that the best ones could be {{PD-Argentina}}, because it has more than 25 years since it was taken (the man has died in 1906!), or even a tag that said "it's copyright has expired", because, as he had died in 1906 and we are in 2006, there's been 100 years, time enough to expire a copyright anywhere. I did not modify the tag because I don't know which one is more apropriate in this case.
How's the winter in Belarus this year? With regards,Joao Xavier 20:16, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Copyright tag[edit]

Well, take a look at and tell if its ok... I did know, i'v never even thouhgt, we could create tags/templates. --Cyberpunk 22:24, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Map of Calgary[edit]

I'm sorry, I know that, the problem is that when I tried to save the flag in the Enlgish Wikipedia in my PC, to upload it here, I could save it only as PNG, and not as SVG, I don't know why. Thanks for correcting it. Leslie 19:29, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I did indeed clicked directly in the image. Thanks very much for your answer. Leslie 00:46, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

thumb images[edit]

What a shame... so sorry i didnt see that, i'll have more attetion next time. All images name and resolution original fixed, not all by me, i see that other ppl already changed some of them. So i thing that tag saying there's an image with the same name on commons also means that the image will be deleted? i saw there was a very poor image on the portugues wiki, and one with the same name on commons, no reason to have 2 of them. --Cyberpunk 23:37, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Image:Arrondissement de Chateau Thierry.png[edit]

Hi, Thnaks for the message - didn't realise that more than the source data was needed but I'll copy the rest in future. I plan to use the image for an article I'm still writing in the next couple of days. Dlyons493 Talk 03:18, 8 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for your note re the above image. I think I've now added a category to the image - although it doesn't show up at the bottom of the page. Have I done it right? You may be able to help out with another question - I've uploaded Oulton.jpg, and have been trying to link to it from a wikipedia page. However, when it seems there is a another file with the same name on wikipedia that the page links to rather than my image. Do you know how I can force the page to link to the one here on the Commons. (I shall replace them with png versions when I can get to a computer than do a reasonable conversion).

Thank you for your advice in the image. I changed it. Please let me know if I did it ok. The sentence: "La foto la tomé yo el 26 de febrero de 2006" (spanish)means "The picture was taken by me on February 26/2006" --Albasmalko 17:48, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Image:Russian coa.svg[edit] can only license the EPS file as-is. That Copyright notice applies only to original works.

As the coat of arms itself is public domain, can only license the exact vector image that they created without modification. As soon as we converted this image to SVG, it reverted to the original license. The terms of use can only apply only to original work by, not their rendition of existing public domain images. Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 14:48, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

I don't sure about that. Why vectorization itself could not be copyrighted? I think good idea to ask for clarification. --EugeneZelenko 15:43, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
That would be silly. Whatever answer they give you will be in their own interest. They will tell you they own the copyright because you may send them money to secure your use of it. But the Russian COA is ineligible for copyright because it's a Public Domain image. No matter who created the graphic. You cannot copyright a Coat of Arms belonging to another entity. Even if you put a lot of hard work into it. Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 15:49, 12 March 2006 (UTC)


I use the raw file name because I am not englishi native speaker, so it will cost me much time to work out a resonalble file name, so I use the original one. I think file name is not nesseccery, because we have search and category function. I does not put some english description,too. so it may made it very difficult to others use this image.

I will use these images on chinese version wikipedia. --Yongxinge 14:21, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

Chemical structures in SVG format[edit]

Hi Eugene. I'll add my images to categories when I get the time. But as for SVG vs. PNG, I can't create SVG files from Photoshop Elements which I use, and also, the Wikiproject on Chemistry suggests uploading chemical structures as hi-res PNGs, so that's what I'm doing.


Ben 17:34, 21 March 2006 (UTC).

try coreldraw ? it is vectorized.
or try out :-) Schmierer 16:35, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
I don't have CorelDRAW. I downloaded Inkscape, but it requires me to install X11 and I don't have the space for all that on my laptop. Gchemical only runs on Linux, which I don't have either. So I can't upload my images as SVG. Should I not upload any images anymore if I can only make PNGs?

Tagging images 'screenshot' 'logo' etc[edit]

Hi Eugene...

I look at Category:Candidates for speedy deletion and I always notice images that you have tagged there. So I just wanted to say thanks for doing all this work and for always notifying the uploader.

But I wonder why you don't delete them yourself...? Since you're an admin... If we delete such images as early as possible, hopefully we can delete them before other people start using them.

cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 00:49, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

It depends on free time and how well CheckUsage works. But I'll try to make such deletions when my time will allow me to do so. --EugeneZelenko 04:31, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Question About Album Covers[edit]

Spain traffic signals[edit]

Thank you very much for your comments. Would you tell me how I can put them in the category? And would you say me which programm is the best for edit SVG files? Fireworks can do it?

I'm converting some PNG images to vector images in Fireworks, to export to Freehand later. But in Freehand there's no possible save the file as SVG, so I must save it in .fh11 or .eps. But the Inkscape don't open this extensions. Do you know how I can transfer PNG vectors from Fireworks to SVG in Inkscape? Thanks. Benedicto XVI Español | English 12:36, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Logos of Ukrainian political parties[edit]

Hello Eugene! You tagged some logos of Ukrainian political parties for speedy deletion. Are you sure, that these logos are not included in {{PD-UA-exempt}}? I think, that "d) ... symbols and signs of enterprises, institutions and organizations" applies here. Shouldn't we bring this case to Commons:Deletion requests? Regards --Franz Xaver 15:54, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi! It sounds logical to me, that logos of political parties should be copyrighted. Otherwise everybody, who has founded a new party, could adopt the logo of another very popular party and use it for campaigning. However, the text in {{PD-UA-exempt}} is ambivalent to this point. There is mentioning of the state at the beginning, but I am not sure, if this also applies at the end. E.g. enterprises are listed, and for me it is unlikely, that logos of private enterprises should be protected, but logos of state enterprises should not be. Would it be possible to check the original text of this law and, if necessary, improve the text in {{PD-UA-exempt}}? --Franz Xaver 16:24, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
Text in Russian translation looks same as in {{PD-UA-exempt}}. --EugeneZelenko 14:33, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
Many thanks! As far as I can understand, this really seems to be the same as {{PD-UA-exempt}}. As I am not a lawyer and I do not know, how Ukrainian laws are working, this matter still is unclear to me. Probably, you are right. --Franz Xaver 16:29, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi Eugene, regarding these images, they have been sitting in CAT:CSD for a while now -- I think you should delete them. It is better that you delete them than another admin because you can read them and understand what they are and why they're copyvios. I don't think admins are happy deleting things they can't understand (I know I'm not!). Cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:32, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

I deleted some of them. Some of images are used in nl: and en:. I'll comment their usage in nl: (as I did in ru:) and upload locally in en:. --EugeneZelenko 15:03, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Hello, you wrote to User:Mwk because of copyrighted files - have a look at him, on de.wp he also uploaded two copyrighted pictures, too. On this picture he loaded up another picture to hide the copyright infringement. Now the picture is on Commons (Image:Ural4320.jpg), too - I think it is very dubious because of the previous activity and the size (25 kB - is for a self taken picture very low). --Tout (Diskussion) 22:01, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Ну а потом перейдем к русским и т.д. Могу помочь. С уважением, Olegzima.

Спасибо за исчерпывающую информацию по поводу удаленных политических логотипов. Буду пользоваться приведеными Вами законами, хотя чувствую, что запутался с лицензиями на украинские логотипы, размещенными на американских серверах в русскоязычной части Википедии. Не вполне понятно, например, что изменится с юридической точки зрения, если по Вашему совету разместить те же логотипы в русской Wikipedia с шаблоном {{logo}}. Существует ли вообще возможность размещения таких логотипов без получения официальных лицензий у всех субъектов избирательного процесса (сейчас их на Украине 45, а если будет больше).

Image:Spain traffic signal r2.svg and Image:Spain traffic signal s3.svg[edit]

Hello, EugeneZelenko. I upload the images small 'cause the file size is smaller and 'cause if you click on the image you go to here, where you can resize the image. Also it is bigger in the article's galleries. Anyway I'll make the next pictures bigger.

Respect the background, it only appears in the image page, but in Traffic sign#Señales de prioridad: and in Señales de prioridad (the picture is the STOP sign) you can see it correctly. So, I think the problem is not the picture. Perhaps the problem is the Wikipedia server. I don't know. Do you know how I can repear it?

Spain map[edit]

I've just uploaded a Spain raiways in 19th century map in SVG. Of course I've drawn it by myself, but the source is an atlas. That is legal, ¿isn't it? And, like I drew the map, the license must be {{PD-myself}}? Best regards, Benedicto XVI Español | English 21:25, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Regarding Image:LocationBangladesh.png[edit]

This image was incorrect (link to discussion) - the borders were skewed. A decision was reached to upload a new one with the errors corrected. The corrected image was uploaded to Image:Location-Bangladesh.png - but this has resulted in two really similar images. I think I should've contacted you earlier about this before uploading... but, well, I forgot. Sorry.

So one of them has to be deleted now. Either the old image needs to be re-uploaded with the correct version or it has to be deleted. If you re-upload the corrected image, the file Location-Bangladesh.png can be deleted, which is fine by me. What do you think? Sheehan 02:20, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

No More "Fair Use"?[edit]

There used to be a "Fair Use" option under licensing, is it no longer available? I posted the question at the Talk page of the image as well: [Image talk:TcsLogo.gif]. Did it change latetly? If no logo images are allowed, then it mean no logos AT ALL will be added to wikipedia from now on? Waqas.usman 05:24, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Commons since beginning allow only images which anybady could use for any purposes. This automatically excludes all fair use, non commercial, non derivative content. See Commons:Licensing for details.
So please upload logos, CD covers and etc. on English Wikipedia.
EugeneZelenko 14:18, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Right, I got it, "Fair Use" allowed on wikipedia English collection but not on commons, I had forgotten that.
Waqas.usman 03:17, 18 April 2006 (UTC)


Dear colleague, I started uploading these files oly after asking an administrator of pt-wikipedia whether it was legal or not. since the answer was yes, it is legal, I started working on it.

Hello EugeneZelenko:

Please deleted it the "File:FeriaAbrilPortadaDia.jpeg", i cannot (excuse me english, is very bad). Thank you. --Lobillo 07:39, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Hello EugeneZelenko:

You can deleted it by there is anyone, i forget it the licensed and put in... other one (jaja, excuse me inglish, is bad bad bad...). Look at "Image:FeriaAbrilPortadaDia2.jpeg", then you can deleted it. Thank you --Lobillo 17:25, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Zhukov reversion?[edit]

What is your reasoning for your version on this photo? Image:Russia-Moscow-Georgy Zhukov Monument.jpg

The benefits of my addition are many.

  • Multilingual navigation to wiki articles on Zhukov
  • Multiingual descriptions of Zhukov
  • When google and MSN search commons properly, sufficient text will be on this page that people can find it using terms from their native language. Actually, there should be even more in the case of a man who was arguably the greatest tank commander of WWII. Consider the variations:
    • گئورگی ژوکوف
    • ჟუკოვი, გეორგი
    • ジューコフ
    • Jukov
    • Zjukov
    • Żukow
    • 朱可夫

This is a great photo. It doesn't do any good if no one can find it, or if it is regarded as no more than a pretty decoration to a forgotten person. Transwikis mean people will find it. Interwikis means they will know what it is when they find it. Both are extremely valuable. If I understood your objection though, perhaps I could address it with mutually acceptable changes?

Your thoughts?

(If you prefer Russian, go ahead, but few others will be able to understand the conversation.) -Mak 16:11, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

I could agree if you'll provide translation of exact description. Repeating same stuff (not very related) on all images is not good idea. There are articles and categories for that purposes. --EugeneZelenko 16:15, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
So you have no problem with including the Interwiki links. It is just the translated captions you have an issue with. Is that correct?

Regarding the translated more information text: You are correct. Unique text for images is best. So if I were to suppress the captions for which there are already unique text in a particular language, would that be satisfactory? Isn't some text in an alternate language better than no text at all? BTW- if you are concerned about the clutter of the extra languages, Dbenbenn has a nice little thing so that you will only see the language(s) you are interested in.

I understand the weakness of "repeated" "generic" text. However consider the case of searching for Krushchev and Gagarin. How will they ever get a search hit on a large picture using Google Image search. Impossible. The text for both must be on the image page for the search to work. And what if the person searching uses a transliteration different than the one that is commonly used for english? You know Russian- Does K make any sense at all? It's about as weird as tranliterating Hawaii into Гавайи, or Firenze into Florence. Or Wien into Vienna. And these are proper names that really ought to be invariant across languages. But consider ordinary nouns. What if someone wants to search for pictures of a giraffe and a lion? What I am pointing out here is that gallery and category pages are inherently incapable of addressing this issue of internet searching with multiple terms, or with languages other than english. This solution addresses that, but I would like to address its weaknesses if I could. Thanks for your advice in advance.

Lastly, even though it is far from ideal, the generic text is not utterly valueless for information purposes. If someone winds up on a Commons page due to a search, they may not understand anything about how to navigate to category and gallery pages for further information, or even what the significance of the image is.
-Mak 19:54, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
Just take this picture as example. It's relevant to both Georgy Zhukov and Red Square. So based on your idea we should place templates (completely unrelated) for both terms. I don't think I'll want to read such descriptions.
Again, relevancy of search result will be worse. For example, if I'll look for Lenin photos, I don't want to see all his monuments.
I think categories and articles on Commons contains enough clues (interwiki included) for search engines. So your templates are definitely redundant.
EugeneZelenko 14:25, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
Explain to me how a user using cyrillic can google for Zhukov and Red square and get a hit on your page. Nowhere does there appear any occurance of Красная or Площадь. Do a few image searches using google on the net. Here is the google image search I describe. One hit. Try to understand why there is a hit. It is because the words are there- not off on some other pages. So I don't know how you imagine how it works, but the search engine has to find the words in a predictable and uniform way that they can apply to all sites. If you want your page to be invisible to search engines, then your position makes sense.
Single sentence text in alternate languages describing pertinent details in an image is not redundancy. It illuminates the user as to what they are viewing in their own language, and provides search targets that internet search engines can readily acquire.
Your wish is for your page remain invisible to the rest of the net. That's fine. Perhaps you can content yourself with the fact that those adept at navigating around Commons may find it. Of course it means that dozens rather than thousands will see this statue or get a clue about why it is significant. Suit yourself. -Mak 16:29, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
If you want to help in this case, please translate exact description on other languages you know without trashing description with useless keywords. --EugeneZelenko 02:56, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, but you offer no rebuttal, only a slight. I can only gather from this that you have no arguments to offer. As a suggestion, perhaps at least you could add Красная Площадь to your description. That would be a start at getting exact descriptions for the half million images in what? the 20 major languages. Let's see... 10 million exact descriptions to be remedially applied to the existing set of images. Want to take a guess how many images will be in the database by the time that happens? Anyway, I agree it is not ideal and certainly I will respect your POV for this image, but really. Perhaps you might want to think through this problem a bit more? Some time it might benefit you to understand why the google search found the rather poor photo of Zhukov's red square statue. It might help if you ever want your picture to be found. -Mak 07:26, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
My arguments is based on my POV that most relevant information should be present in description (including categories), your arguments are based on your POV to use keywords as wide as possible. So what do you want to prove in this case?
I added Category:Red Square to description. Translation of Red Square should be located (and maintained) there.
EugeneZelenko 14:19, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
I agree that the verbosity is an issue- particularly when you consider how many languages it would have to be in. Consider the descriptions for Category:Adolf Hitler for example. I recognize the issue. Anyway I'd like to understand your view a little better though. Is it correct to say that you prefer that text be extremely minimal- like a 6 to 8 word Caption? If text minimalism is the goal, would you oppose having a line of text corresponding to all the major variants of the term "Zhukov"? FYI- My POV is that internet search engines should be able to find your image. It is not correct to say my POV is associated with any particular way of doing that. If you have a better practical alternative, I am fully prepared to adopt it. I showed why there is a problem with searchers being able to find your page. So are you saying that visibility to internet searches is not important to you? -Mak 15:46, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
As far as I remember there was discussion on VP about Google search. That Google doesn't look into image page at all. So this problem should be fixed first, then we could discuss which variants of transliteration should be included. --EugeneZelenko 15:50, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
If you look, you will see that it was I who initiated that VP exchange. The problem is that the Google spider looks at the extention of a page and decides that it does not have to fetch a page named with .jpg ending because it will have no text. A reasonable assumption as part of a perfectly reasonable optimization, but it fails on Commons. Pretty trivial to deal with, so it is hard to make a case that the search text issue is an academic one.
The issue isn't pretty for multilingual sites like ours. If you look at that section discussion you will see that the requirements for such text is that it be nearby the image itself. Would it be satisfactory to you to see Zhukov transliteration variants directly underneath the image? How many to you think would be unreasonable? -Mak 16:18, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Reasonable text is Памятник Георгию Константиновичу Жукову. Москва, Россия. (may be with Красная площадь). Unreasonable text is (19 ноября (1 декабря) 1896 — 18 июня 1974) — великий советский полководец, Маршал Советского Союза, министр обороны СССР в 1955—1957 гг.. --EugeneZelenko 03:10, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
This was the summary sentence for General Zhukov from Russian Wikipedia ru:Жуков, Георгий Константинович. Actually the "Unreasonable text" did begin with his full name, but yeah, I agree it is pretty bad- more like an almanac entry than an introductory sentence to an encyclopedia article. Usually the summary sentence is pretty concise and covers the essential facts. The English blurb for Zhukov would be "Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov, GCB (Russian: Гео́ргий Константи́нович Жу́ков) (December 1 [O.S. November 19] 1896–June 18, 1974), Soviet military commander and politician, considered by many as one of the most successful field commanders of World War II." Do you consider the english version just as unsuitable for transclusion with an image of Zhukov? -Mak 04:04, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
At least words GCB (Russian: Гео́ргий Константи́нович Жу́ков) (December 1 [O.S. November 19] 1896–June 18, 1974), considered by many as one of the most successful field commanders of World War II. are completely irrelevant in this description and will not help search. --EugeneZelenko 04:23, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
Have you verified that? Try searching for "World War II" "Russian" "Commander". Those terms are all there. Here is a search that would have returned your image as well as many of the german commanders who were ground under the treads of Zhukov's tank forces.image search for wwII russian commanders. Shall we leave this descriptive text for Zhukov out so that users will get only the german commanders? But I press. I do understand that it clutters the presentation a bit and it would be much better if all 10 million descriptions needed were hand tailored for each image. Sure we can toil away and get a few hundred images accurately captioned. But that doesn't make much of a dent on the 10 million required today, and what could easily be triple that a year from now. I don't have any easy solutions. Possibly the best solution is that Google would use keyword meta tags on Commons. This used to be the norm for search engines- long ago html had the ability to hide keywords for search engine use on the page. They weren't displayed, but they were misused by spammers so the Search guys ignore the fields now. Well, if all the text from all these languages could be made invisible, then the text wouldn't junk up the pages. Until Google is persuaded to do the right thing, then we either settle for ugly and searchable, or set the standard at Concise and relevant or not at all, and if the searches fail then so be it. Ugly, or pretty, but invisible. Not great choices.
-Mak 07:29, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
If I need to look to particular commander, I don't need to add commander and so on. I know the name. It's useless to walk through the heap of unrelated images (please try to think about people who doesn't have fast connection, or slowdown with server (quite often on Commons)).
Just philosophical things: technology can't replace general education. If I don't know something, I need to investigate: read book, article in Wikipedia, browse generic categories here. I don't care if search engine will return stupid result for stupid request.
EugeneZelenko 15:01, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
People use Google to educate themselves, and most education is done outside of classrooms. Knowing your way around the reference section of a library is an essential skill. There are different kinds of searches.
  1. Searching for what is known (Zhukov statue, red square),
  2. returning information that the user knows is unknown (Russian commanders WWII)
  3. returning information that the user does not know is unknown. (WWII Moscow)- intending to find pictures about the defence of moscow, and instead discovering a statue to a Soviet military figure they didn't know about.
    Google searches help with all three. But if you offer very few words on a page, there is much less likelihood that users in the last two categories will find your site.
Sorry, I think this is cultural differences :-) I studied in Soviet school and post-Soviet university. As far as I remember we moved from topic to topic sequentially not random jumps. --EugeneZelenko 19:13, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
I agree technology does not replace education. Technology is part of education. Consider the technology of the Gutenberg press for example. You want to return to education without books? Perhaps we should have books without indexes in them? Because that is effectively what internet search provides. It is not for free with images though. We have to provide target text for the searcher to hit on. Having a practical way of providing that text for 10 million target texts is my objective. Thanks for your time and your thoughts. I do not yet have a mature proposal yet and your comments made me question some of my assumptions.

CJust to clarify though: Is it true:

  1. that you are completely opposed to any associated text that is not uniquely tailored to the image?
    Sure. For example, if image is photo of Zhukov, it should contains text when, where and in which circumstances it was made. Every photo is unique, until is not a part of series (like building from different angles). --EugeneZelenko 19:13, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
  2. Alternatively, is it true that you would find a single generic sentence for each language acceptable, but only if they met some stringent criteria?
    May be. It's depend... See comment about series of images above. --EugeneZelenko 19:13, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
  3. Regarding much more restrained applications, would a limited number of transliteration variants would be acceptable for terms that are problematic for non russian speakers- eg Zhukov?
    I agree when it'll be part of particular language description. --EugeneZelenko 19:13, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
Again, thanks for your time. Your advice on this is very helpful, because your perspective though I don't agree is a reasonable one and I very much wish to find a solution that is not so objectionable to it. -Mak 18:32, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi Eugene,

I know you have left a few message on this user's talk page in the past, I was wondering if you could talk to them again. The number of image deletion warnings they have is really ridiculous. I think this user should be blocked because they never seem to do anything about it. But I will leave it to your judgement. Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 00:48, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

SVG image won't show[edit]

Sorry about forgetting the self-made tags - my computer crashed and I forgot to reset the license info.

I would upload as SVG, and I would like to as it is clearly better, but whenever I do this, some thumbnails don't show on the article page, on Wikibooks or Wikisource, which is the reason I upload them in the first place. They come up with a white and grey checquered background, and you can only actually see the SVG when you click on the link below the preview. For an example, see image:Slope_Field_1.svg. I'm using Adobe SVG viewer with Opera.

If you can tell me what it is I'm doing wrong, then I will be more than willing to use SVG over PNG. In the meantime, I try to make the PNGs large to give extra information. Alos, what is the best font to use for labelling SVG diagrams?

Hi! Thanks for notifying me my fault. Basically I often fail to understand the signicance of each licensing, as I am rather infrequent in wikimedia commons. I see that FlickR uses several types of licemsing, version 2.0. make commercial use of the work" are two basic requirements to upload images in commons. Am I right? And that is irrespective of versions. in FlickR, mostly they use version 2.0, however some are licensed under no derivatives or no commercial use or both. Such images cannot be uploaded in commons. Right? I ask you because this clarification would be very helpful, and I shall not upload images that are not acceptable in commons henceforth. Please help.--Dwaipayanc 14:02, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

I guess that is not acceptable here in commons, right? In that case, should I upload it in wikipedia and use the email permission? What do you think? I have appealed in the image's talk page also. help, again :( --Dwaipayanc 14:39, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
Same thing applies to Image:Flowermarket.jpg where I have even supplied the link to the email by the author!--Dwaipayanc 14:42, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

BLS.png -- User:Shesacoustic[edit]

I edited the information on the image, BLS.png. Is it sufficient? I am new here (this is my first time contributing) and I am trying my best. Please let me know if it is okay now! Thank you so much!

MacBook Pro[edit]

The pictures were simply reference pictures I used during the construction of the model. They aren't used in the final model and therefore aren't in the picture I uploaded. Sorry if my earlier post implied otherwise. Eatrains 21:34, 4 June 2006 (UTC)


""Vandalizing User talk:EugeneZelenko""???

¿¿¿ Why ????

You are paranoic, I should punish you instead you to me, freaky; Why do you put to me this message?

<<< Vandalizing user talk pages is definitely could be punished by permanent block. I could rollback one time, but you are warned. I suggest you to spend some time reading Spanish copyright law instead of such activity. EugeneZelenko 13:14, 1 June 2006 (UTC) >>

Anyone can explain me what means this and why I have this message? ;·(


Hi Eugene! Okay, I am going to admit, I am very confused with the copyright issues. How can I use the image with the information that I have?

Me again :)[edit]

Hey Eugene...I got your message, and I think I have a better understanding now. I tagged both of the images I had uploaded into the Wikimedia Commons for deletion because of copyright violations. Thank you for all of your help, it is very much appreciated, and I apologize for the mistakes!


Hi Eugene! about the deletiion of my images, Sorry I'm pretty news uploading images, but: 1)I'm the copyright holder of the Terror haza Picture 2)For the Italian and San Marino Republic laws, the Party logo's&symbols are of Public Domain the only restriction they have is that no either parties can use the same symbols, names and colors in order to avoid missunderstendig! So I've kindly to ask you to update the copyright licence because I don't know how to do it! Thank you very much! Nickel Chromo
