Plant photos[edit]

Hi Gerrit - I fear the source you are using has a considerable number of typographical errors, and also out-of-date taxonomy in several instances. It would be a lot easier if these errors could be corrected before uploading the pics, rather than having to do all the corrections after the event. Before uploading any more pics, could you post a text list of what there is to come, so corrections can be done in advance of uploading? - Thanks, MPF 18:15, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I'm sorry to hear this. As I know nothing about plant taxonomy myself, I didn't notice. Before uploading the next batch, I will post a list somewhere of the categorization and other properties, so that more knowledgeable users like you are able to correct it in advance. Thanks for your help on this issue, as I like to get it correct. Gerrit 18:55, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Thanks; I'll take a look and check it out - MPF 21:25, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Hi Gerrit - the Images shown on the page Lilium pensylvanicum are absolutely mis-identified. They probably show Hemerocallis, but definitely not Lilium. And of course it is not a pensylvanicum too. Sorry, Denisoliver 20:08, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Hello Gerrit. Could you please have a look to User talk:Topjabot. I answered to some problems which were already mentioned there. Thanx --:Bdk: 07:47, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I also found misidentified plants. The pictures on the page Anthericum liliago (Liliaceae) both do not show this plant. The first picture seems to be a some kind of Cornus. BerndH 15:50, 26 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Image:Lemna minor0.jpg[edit]

Hello Gerrit, Other misidentified plant. This is a lemnaceae but Lemna minor, possibly a Spirodela polyrhiza. (common duckmeat from North America) Pixeltoo 11:10, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Hi Gerrit, I read that you got permission to use all images of Kurt Stüber under GFDL. At first I want to say wow congratulations as I myself have asked serval times people releasing their content GFDL-free (and I was not always sucessfull). I would suggest to you that you put the (Email) permission for documentation on a subpage of your user page so that there can be no question in future. E.g. look at my subpage: User:Arnomane/Requests. As I'm also trying to improve the descriptions of images within the Wikimedia Commons I have created Template:Information recently and I think it is quite useful out of several reasons (look at Commons:Village pump archive-13#New image description template). You can find an example using this template e.g. at Image:Magic-Telescope.jpg. Some more info can be found at Commons:Criteria for inclusion and Template talk:Information. So I would be glad if you can add the usage of this template to your bot if you like it. Arnomane 17:38, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Acnistus australis[edit]

Shouldnt some of these px be rotated 90 degrees? TeunSpaans 20:18, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Illustration of Vicia hirsuta[edit]

Hi. I'd like to ask you for assistance for the following illustration: [[1]] I'm not sure if that picture is under copyright restrictions or not. And I do not want to upload it without permission. If that illustration is free it would be really nice if you could upload it to wikimedia commons and add a link to Vicia hirsuta. PS: I read [my german discussion] more often. Many thanks. Fabelfroh 20:16, 17 July 2005 (UTC)

Licenses[edit]

Hello Gerrit, could you please go through all your old images and add description, source and license information where it is necessary, soon. See Image:Cairn 3.jpg for example. Thanks --:Bdk: 07:41, 15 September 2005 (UTC)

Neomarica northiana[edit]

I've also found misidentified photos. I hid the photos on the article -- they are most definitely not Neomarica northiana. Not quite sure what they are. I didn't edit the photo descriptions--thought I might leave that up to you. Thanks! Rkitko 08:20, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Image deletion notice[edit]

Hi Gerrit,

Because of misidentification and low image quality, I have put :Image:Sarracenia purpurea2.jpg up for deletion.

Small confusion with username[edit]

Hi I stumbled across a user page of a non existant user User:Gerritholl which got refered from your bot page User:Topjabot. The non existant user's page has been deleted in order to avoid confusion and the links on Topjabot have ben changed to you: [2] (I hope this is right that way). There were also some old questions from users on the talk page of User:Gerritholl that therefor you never did see, so I am copying them here below (in case they are still relevant). Arnomane 09:05, 15 April 2006 (UTC)


hi Gerrit,

you placed Lysimachia vulgaris in the family Primulacea, why? Shouldnt it be in Myrsinaceae? TeunSpaans 17:17, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Poor image quality[edit]

Hi Gerrit,

Because of poor image quality, I requested deletion for some of the plant-images you uploaded. I would be ashamed to place such out-of-focus images on the internet, even if they were not my pictures.

Hello, you are the author of one of the images in the category Grande Arche. This category has been recently proposed for deletion under the pretext that there is no FOP in France. I believe not all the images in this category deserve to be deleted, some of them do not present copyright issues. You can express your opinion on this page Commons:Deletion_requests/Category:Grande_Arche if you believe the category should stay. I noticed this deletion request after one of my images (also featured picture) belonging to this category has been proposed for deletion here. Best Regards. --Atoma 16:34, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Plant images from biolib.de[edit]

Can you for the sake of avoiding an argument forward the permission you got, to the OTRS permission queue, and get someone with access to flag the images concerned as OK.

You know they are probably Ok, the source you got them probably knows , but us mere Commons users don't.

A barnstar for you![edit]

Photographer Barnstar.png The Photographer's Barnstar
Hi!

My name is Edoardo Bit, I am an architect and also a “young researcher” of the University of Ferarra (Italy).

I am writing a book on the “green walls technologies” and I have found very interesting a photo in your page. So, I would kindly ask you if I can use it in my book.

Obviously, if you gently decide to grant me the permission, your name (or your nickname) and the link of the picture will be correctly cited in the credits of my publication.

The photo which I would use is: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Acanthus_hungaricus1.jpg


Thank you very much! I hope you will attend my request… My e-mail is: edoardo.bit@gmail.com

Bye, Edoardo

Edoardo.bit (talk) 09:33, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
Although I uploaded the photograph to Wikimedia Commons, I did not take it. The photograph is originally by Kurt Stueber, as indicated on the photo page: http://www.kurtstueber.de/ . So, I do not deserve this Barnstar... --Gerrit (talk) 08:14, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
