Could you please explain on Image:Vs bez visp.png what is the area that is shown? Thanks in advance. - Andre Engels 01:25, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Purpose of Zug[edit]

Salut Greatpatton, Zug is meant for images concerning Zug Stadt, the capital of canton of Zug and not for everything concerning the canton itself. Although you described the coat of arms as "Zug Stadt" it shows the coat of arms of the canton of Zug (Image:Canton_zoug-drapeau.png), which is not the same. The coat of arms of Zug Stadt has a slight different blue and a castle on top (cp. [1]) The linked image was in but had to be deleted because of copyright problems. As far as I know there is no free image of the coat of arms of Stadt Zug. Therefore Image:Canton_zoug-drapeau.png should be placed on a page for the canton of Zug, which has not yet been created and I don't know about the naming scheme on commons. --Baikonur 15:08, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)

This is not the coat of arm of the the city of Zug but the flag of the city of Zug which is the same as the flag of the canton with the héraldique (dont' know the english word) Argent a Bar Azure (in french). This is the same for instance as the city of Geneva where the flag of the city and the flag of the canton are the same. ref: FLOW Greatpatton 17:00, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Ah okay, I was irritated because the German word "Wappen" means coat of arms in English. The correct translation is "Flagge". I'll correct it in Zug. If you have a free image of the coat of arms of the city or know a source for it I would really appreciate it. --Baikonur 19:08, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Sorry, but I was looking for Flagge, but the only word that came to me was Wappen. ;-) (my german is not that good). I m currently redrawing all the flags (not the coat of arms) for all swiss Gemeinde see fr:Wikipédia:Projet, Blasons, communes et cantons suisses, with a free license. For each flag I have the vectorial file (.svg or .ai) from which it should not be difficult to draw the coat of arms, maybe we can team up between de: and fr: to do this job.

Image info[edit]

I have found some old uploads of yours that are missing license info and categorization, namely Image:Tessin-blason.jpg and Image:Paudex-blason.jpg (but there may be more). Please have a look and add the missing info! Thanks -- Duesentrieb 01:37, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

Commons-l subscription[edit]

Hello Greatpatton,

as per Commons talk:Administrators, I am asking all admins to subscribe to commons-l, a mailing list for Wikimedia Commons policy and project discussion. Since many admins are only on Commons infrequently, this is a good way to alert people about important happenings. The mailing list is nominally multilingual, but predominantly English.

If you are already subscribed to commons-l, I apologize for bothering you, and you are free to ignore this message. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail account, feel free to leave me a message, and I can send you a GMail invite. Traffic on the mailing list is relatively low, and we do not expect admins to read all messages to the list, but it would be nice if you could check on it at least every few weeks. Thanks for your time,--Eloquence 23:03, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

duplicate imge: Image:Greatsanddunesbig.jpg[edit]

This image is a duplicate of Image:Coloradodunes.jpg. I tagged it accordingly and exchanged its only use in the fr-wikipedia against the other version. --h-stt !? 12:21, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Image deletion warning Image:Täsch-drapeau.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this image, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue. If the file is up for deletion because it has been superseded by a superior derivative of your work, consider the notion that although the file may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new file.
In all cases, please do not take the deletion request personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!

Request removal of sysop access[edit]

Hi. I have requested the removal of your sysop access, at meta:Requests_for_permissions#Removal_of_access. Following Commons:Administrators#What_is_expected_from_an_administrator.3F, an administrator with less than 50 edits in 12 months is considered inactive and may have his/her sysop status revoked.

This is not a personal attack on you, but a way to make sure that those administrator's listed as such are available for administrative tasks. If you feel that you will again become active and need the sysop tools, you are of course welcome to apply for adminship again.

removal of adminstatus[edit]

Hello, Greatpatton,

your adminstatus has been removed per request on metawiki due to inactivity. You can re-apply for admin through normal procedure. Effeietsanders 18:01, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Greatpatton!

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.

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]


Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:
