Image:Episyrphus balteatus male - side (aka).jpg[edit]

  • Hi, I've seen that you made edits like this one. The image was already included in the page Episyrphus balteatus, which is sorted into the category Category:Episyrphus. It does not make sens to put the images themself in this category too. So, I'll revert your edits. -- aka 19:17, 26 April 2006 (UTC)



You have created several categories about ice age, ending with BCE. In my opinion, this notation is inaccurate, since in geology years are counted before 1950, not before 1 AD. The correct notation is BP, for Before Present. --Juiced lemon 23:43, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi Juiced lemon - I will remember that when editing later - thanks. I not anyone else change it, I will change when I have the time. --Glenn 06:28, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
Hi Juiced lemon - it has now been changed. --Glenn 07:37, 6 July 2007 (UTC)


Hi Nbrouard - Placing those article was a first categorisation, later me or other can move some of those article in some of the articles in subcategories. --Glenn 05:57, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Category:Weighting scales[edit]

Hi. You are invited to discuss Category:Weighting scales at Commons:Categories for discussion/Current requests/2007/09#Category:Weighting_scales.   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 04:38, 23 September 2007 (UTC)


Hi ! Thank you for the cleaning ! The place is now shining :) One remark : maybe Pulse amplitude modulation and Pulse width modulation should not be in Amplitude modulation, because they may contain only numerical modulation ? Regards --Zedh 00:08, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi Zedh - Thanx for your appreciation. I think of amplitude modulation as a broad category - and therefore encompasses all amplitude like modulation. Please read this: [1] Quote: "...A simple form of AM often used for digital communications is on-off keying, a type of amplitude-shift keying by which binary data is represented as the presence or absence of a carrier wave. This is commonly used at radio frequencies to transmit Morse code, referred to as continuous wave (CW) operation....". Regards --Glenn 22:29, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
ok, but in this case every modulation could be used for digital communications, for example Frequency modulation and RDS systems .. therefore I agree that multiple categorization will be usefull for searching images. So this is a good solution --Zedh 20:23, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Power cable edits[edit]

I saw your work on the pictures I uploaded. Well done! --Achim Hering 00:24, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Glenn!

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:


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]]

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.

I uploaded it from en-wiki. en:User:Eyreland uploaded it to en-wiki 9. okt 2006, 00:58 and released it under public domain as written in the upload page. --Glenn (talk) 17:48, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Category:River Manifold[edit]

I have removed your recent additions since the river has no connection to manifolds in either mathematics or engineering, so these categories are irrelevant. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 16:17, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, but it was temporary - later exchanged with "see also"-links. --Glenn (talk) 16:20, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
