Hello, Hans Erren!

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.

Deutsch: Hallo Hans Erren,

Zur der Karte Ripuarisch.png habe ich zwei Frage, die Du vielleicht beantworten kannst:

  1. Was ist das grün markierte Gebiet? Ich vermute unbewohnt, Naturschutzgbiet und offiziell französichsprachig.
  2. Im Artikel de:Ripuarische Dialektgruppe steht etwas von der Region Ahrweiler und der Umgebung von Brohl, die ripuarisch sprächen, und ich kann das für Ahrweiler nach meinem unmaßgeblichen Ohrenschein als Tourist wohl bestätigen. Auf der Karte erscheint aber die Landesgrenze in dem Gebiet als Sprachgrenze, oder interpretiere ich die Karte fehl?
Danke! --Purodha Blissenbach (talk) 11:40, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

English: Hi Hans Erren,

Ther are two questions about the map Ripuarisch.png which you might be able to answr:

  1. The article de:Ripuarische Dialektgruppe states that in the region of Ahrweiler and in the vincinity of Brohl, they were speaking Ripuarian. As a traveler, my acoustic impression is backing the first. Yet the map shows the federal state border as the language border. How that? Am I misinterpreting the map?
  2. What about the green area in the map? I assume, it's uninhabitated, natural reservere, and officially speaking french.
Than you for a reply. --Purodha Blissenbach (talk) 11:40, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Deutsch: Antwort: Hallo Purodha

Gruen is unbewohnt/wald, also de facto sprachenlos. Hier [1] ist meine quelle fuer das Ripuarisch,

Wie man sieht is Ahrweiler hier nicht ripuarisch angedeutet. Hans Erren (talk) 20:35, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Votive inscription thermae coriovallum.jpg[edit]

Hello, I don't know the language is the best to talk to you...(french for me, but english is ok)... Would you mind if I touch it up and add a black background so as to not see the reflection on the window, like I do with my own imports, or as I did for a pic made by DerHexer (File:Römermuseum Osterburken (DerHexer) 2012-09-30 091.jpg) ? You can answer here if you like, I follow this page. Nonopoly (talk) 10:33, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

What, already deleted? I did not even have time to check! Hans Erren (talk) 19:47, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, all my fault. I loved that pic and used it on Amsterdamer Pegel. Later I found your pic shown on and there ( ) marked Copyright 2013, Stichting Normaal Amsterdams Peil. I started an investigation here, which went totally wrong. After a complain your pic is now back online. Thanks for your work and sorry for the trouble. Feel free to sue Stichting Normaal Amsterdams Peil. --Rknbg (talk) 18:16, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
no harm done, I sent Stichting Normaal Amsterdams Peil a notification. Hans Erren (talk) 22:07, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
