Hello, Famartin!

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

File:Moores Knob Pinus virginiana 1.jpg[edit]

What are your reasons, please? When I uploaded the photo, I did consider P. rigida, but came down in favour of P. virginiana on the basis of the slender cones, which don't fit the broad ovoid shape of closed P. rigida cones (see image notes, added on photo; then see at full resolution). - MPF (talk) 21:29, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi,

File:2014-03-10 13 45 26 Cumulonimbus clouds in Elko, Nevada.JPG[edit]

Hi,

I had removed the category:cumulonimbus clouds because there is no way, but your word, to know this is such a cloud. There is no particular feature to put it in either of the sudcategories of the category and it serves no purpose to remain there. I'm thinking that it is better to be only in the Elko categegory.

Category:Kelly Ostler Horizon Hospice Memorial Rose Garden[edit]

Hello Famartin,
I just noticed your pictures of the Kelly Ostler Horizon Hospice Memorial Rose Garden and wanted to ask if the roses there are identified (some signs), as pictures of identified cultivars would be even more valuable (while there are quite a lot of rose pictures, most rose cultivars have no or only one or two pictures).
Best wishes,
Anna reg (talk) 11:06, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

I didn't see any signs identifying them... sorry. Famartin (talk) 15:26, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Bristlecone signboards[edit]

Ooops, sorry, got the wrong forest! But they don't belong in Cat:Pinus longaeva either, because the photos don't show the species, only signboards about it. I've copied them to Cat:Tree signs in the United States. - MPF (talk) 08:10, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Close-ups of [species] flowers to [Species] flowers moves[edit]

Why are you moving the more specific "Close-ups of [species] flowers" format categories to the less specific "[Species] flowers"? Was there a discussion somewhere? There are dozens of flower close-up categories, if you think all should be renamed as you have done, it needs to be discussed. Reminder that not all photos of flowers are close-ups. --Pitke (talk) 11:30, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

I thought there was redundancy between "(tree species) in flower" and "close ups of (tree species) flowers". Also, if you are entering a category, most people will naturally input the species name first, not thinking of "closeups" first... with the format "(species) (flowers)" for flower categories, they then show up as options, while "closeups" won't. If you want, I could go back and re-create the "closeups" within the "(tree species) (flowers)" categories. I'm more or less done with it anyway, I wasn't planning on doing any others, at least not any time soon. Famartin (talk) 11:37, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Those Pinus brutia photos[edit]

I remain sure they're Pinus brutia (a species I'm very familiar with), even despite the lack of decent quality photos (no cone shots, no clearer shot with the frost thawed or brushed off to show the needles better). They're only young trees, so may well not yet have experienced a winter severe enough to harm them. Pinus brutia can survive temperatures down to around -30°C, possibly lower where conditions are dry; what is the lowest recorded in Elko in the last 20 years or so? (what does "-21 Fahrenheit" mean?? - I, like most in the world, don't do that archaic cr@p ;-) They're certainly not any Nevada native pine, nor Pinus nigra, which is virtually the only other possible option. I do remain curious though - what's the point of uploading such a large series of photos of trees that you don't consider identifiable?? - MPF (talk) 11:46, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

MFP, do you have a source on them surviving -30C? I cannot find anything which suggest below -23C, and most I can find suggest -18C is the limit. -21F is about -30C, and they have definitely survived that with no problem. Elko is not Las Vegas or anything like it (believe it or not, Nevada is a very big state, and Las Vegas is only a very small part of it; most of Nevada is nothing like Las Vegas, and Elko is a cold place; average extreme temp range is about +37C to -24C in any given year. Anyway, I digress) While I'm sure P. brutia is planted in Las Vegas, the likelyhood of cultivation in Elko seems remote. Also, to answer your question, they were uploaded for the rime. Famartin (talk) 12:20, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Yep, I know how large Nevada is ;-) Possible that Elko may be unsuitable for long-term cultivation, but given a run of mild or average winters with nothing severe, it would be very easy for it to reach the size of those in your photos (and see my comments from google street view, below, too). References for its temperature tolerance: Nahal, I (1983), Le Pin Brutia (Pinus brutia Tenore). Forêt méditerranéenne 5 (2): 165-172; Weber, E. J. (1981), Pinus eldarica: a valuable resource for arid zones? Arid Lands Newsletter 13: 41-44. Nahal cites temperatures of -25°C within its native range (Bursa and Uşak, western Turkey: both in the warmer, western part of the species' range). Weber points out that its [P. eldarica, = Pinus brutia subsp. eldarica] cold-tolerance (and also its summer heat tolerance) is greater in dry climates (e.g. undamaged by -29°C in WA); the warmer limits you cite likely refer to losses incurred in more humid climates (Weber cites killed by -29°C in MI, KS, NY, OH, and by -23°C in RI).
I just did a check on google street view, and quickly found several more young P. brutia nearby, e.g. here and here, and plenty of older trees too, e.g. here and here in older parts of Elko. Clearly it is more reliable, and more commonly planted in Elko, than even I thought likely. - MPF (talk) 15:08, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
MFP, obviously whatever it is, its doing well, but how are you making the identification of P. brutia? Also, how are you determining "dry" versus more humid? While Elko is high desert, in winter (especially when it gets below zero) odds strongly favor snow on the ground, and freezing fog is not rare (hence the rime photos, though temps in that particular instance were no where near -30C). It just seems like another species that is more cold tolerant would make more sense. A ponderosa subspecies perhaps. Famartin (talk) 19:28, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Bark, branch structure, crown shape, needle length, cones (visible on a few of the streetview trees) and (in a couple of your pics) needle number countable. And what birders call 'jizz' - instant recognition developed from good experience. The old trees in the last street view link I gave are strikingly similar to the trees I studied in native forests in southwest Turkey. Definitely not any of the subspecies of P. ponderosa. Quite what influences hardiness is difficult to know; it is unfortunate that Weber didn't expand further on the topic, nor state where in WA his test was done. But the observations show that temperature range tolerance is greater where rainfall is low, and humidity (perhaps particularly in summer) is low; the species is very susceptible to fungal leaf diseases in high summer humidity, and that could possibly affect its ability to tolerate cold. Worth adding though, that in Turkey it also gets winter snow and fog (low cloud). - MPF (talk) 21:50, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
MFP, I return to Elko next week, and I'll take some more detailed photos along with make a visit to the local nurseries; given its apparent commonality, it is most likely continuing to be sold, so we'll see what they are identifying it as. Famartin (talk) 22:44, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
Good idea! Close-up photos of cones would be the most useful. It may be sold under the names of 'afghan pine', 'mondell pine', 'eilar pine', or 'eldar pine' as well as by scientific name Pinus brutia or Pinus [brutia subsp.] eldarica. Best wishes for Christmas! - MPF (talk) 18:18, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately MFP, both nurseries I visited today had nearly completely cleared out their nursery stock for the winter, with no pines visible at either location. I am curious... after bringing up P. nigra, it occurred to me that it could be that species we're dealing with. But, you said you were certain it was not P. nigra... may I ask how? Famartin (talk) 02:10, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, been forgetting to reply - P. nigra is easily excluded by its branching structure, very different from these trees. - MPF (talk) 16:36, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
MFP, I don't know if branch structure is a good method for identification in this case, since many pines which typically grow in a rather irregular fashion in nature can grow much more orderly in a good cultivated environment. At least, that's been my experience. Anyway, I just (literally within the last half hour) took these photos... it was dark so hopefully they are adequate: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2015-01-08_19_33_12_Closed_pine_cone_in_Elko,_Nevada.JPG https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2015-01-08_19_39_55_Pine_terminal_bud_in_Elko,_Nevada.JPG https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2015-01-08_19_34_23_Pine_bark_in_Elko,_Nevada.JPG https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2015-01-08_19_38_57_Opened_pine_cone_in_Elko,_Nevada.JPG https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2015-01-08_19_39_22_Pine_needles_in_Elko,_Nevada.JPG https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2015-01-08_19_42_57_Pine_needles_and_terminal_bud_in_Elko,_Nevada.JPG Hopefully this will yield an answer.

File:2015-05-01 15 16 27 Cumulonimbus clouds south of Elko, Nevada.jpg[edit]

Hi;

Cumulonimbus Category is a mother category and all files should be put into subcategories. While I beleive tour that is a cumulonimbus moving in, this picture has no characteristics permitting for the viewer to recognized it as this type of cloud. All we see is a dark base and a mass of cumuliform clouds. There is no anvil, arcus, wall cloud, etc... Since we have the location (Elko, Nevada), I have moved it the nearest best category: Category:Thunderstorms in Elko, Nevada.

What reason can you put to contradict this?

Pierre cb (talk) 01:00, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Pierre cb,
1, who decided that "cumulonimbus" was a "mother category"?
2, since its already within "clouds in Elko, Nevada", "thunderstorms in Elko, Nevada" is partially redundant (and besides which, you can only see the cloud, not the rain or lightning or hail which would make it more appropriate for "thunderstorms in Elko, Nevada"
3, I'm telling you they are CB, so you should go with it. you're not the only meteorologist on this website, you know.
Sincerely, Famartin (talk) 07:52, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
I don't doubt what you say but nobody else can see any feature associated with cumulonimbus and thus it does not belong in this category, only in "clouds in Elko, Nevada". Pierre cb (talk) 10:26, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
You are bind Pierre cb. The cirrus blow-off of the anvil is clearly visible toward the top of the photo. Your views are very limited. Famartin (talk) 10:28, 19 September 2015 (UTC).
Yes, there is cirrus blow off but nobody would recognized it for an anvil. Pierre cb (talk) 10:32, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
Well, it is one Pierre cb. Last I checked, categories were for objects that ARE a certain item, not objects that "look like" a certain item. Famartin (talk) 11:31, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Excessive subcaterorisation[edit]

Hi Famartin - please stop dividing various conifer taxon categories up into multiple tiny subcategories. It results in the files being lost to access by automatic searching which uses the {{Taxonavigation}} template, and also destroys the value of the mapping facility provided by {{GeoGroupTemplate}}. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 01:46, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

MPF, no, I will not do as you ask. There are a lot of species categories which have been divided up by others in the way I have done, so I see no reason to do as you ask when others have done so in many instances already. Perhaps those tools need to be adjusted to be able to find the images better in the sub-cats.

PS - I was highly annoyed to see the other admin, User:AnRo0002, go through many of my photos with one variety of subcatting (based on location), and then see you come along, undo all of what he did, and then do another version of sub-catting as *you* saw fit (based on sub-species). Either version should be perfectly acceptable. Famartin (talk) 01:58, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Wrong ID[edit]

Hello, Your picture called "2015-04-12 11 23 46 Marsh marigolds blooming on Terrace Boulevard in Ewing, New Jersey.jpg" is not Caltha palustris but Ranunculus ficaria.

Hello Dwergenpaartje, actually it appears the name Ranunculus ficaria is considered a synonym of Ficaria verna on commons, so I moved them to that category. I've renamed the files. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I had no idea I was mis-identifying the plants for so long. Famartin (talk) 04:16, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Over-categorization & U.S. Route 191[edit]

Several thoughts on the matter:

1) The primary focus of the over-categorization issue is listing images under general categories and then again in one or more subcategories of that general category.

2) "Category:Navajo Nation...US 191 just passes through Navajo Nation and is otherwise unrelated to it, and large sections do not pass through the nation, thus US 191 in southeastern Utah should not be a subcat of Navajo Nation." However, the route is a major component of the "transport network" within the Navajo Nation (there just isn't a "Transport in the Navajo Nation" sub-category, . . . yet).

3) Look it this way: "Say you go to the '[Populated places in Utah County, Utah]' category. Within it, you see '[Draper, Utah]' as a subcat. You click on it, and then find that most of the files there have nothing to do with [Utah County]. Why would you then consider it a valid sub-cat?" Because, even though nearly all of city of Draper is not located within Utah County, part of it is and therefore constitutes a part of the category "Populated places in Utah County, Utah". In addition, because U.S. Route 191 is the primary component of the "transport network" in White Mesa, therefore it should be included within that city. However, unlike Salt Lake City, which has multiple subcategories, over-categorization would occur if "U.S. Route 191 in Utah" were in the subcatgory "Roads in White Mesa, Utah", being a subcategory of "Transport in White Mesa, Utah", being a subcategory of "White Mesa, Utah". (It should be obvious to the intelligent, but uninformed Commons user that the entire U.S. Route 191 is not located within the community of White Mesa.)
