El Labrador or Miguel de Pret[edit]

Hello, Hedwig, (first apologize for my bad English). Recently, in 2013, the scholars have found the signature of Miguel de Pret, by x-ray, in one of the paintings in the Museo Cerralbo attributed previously to El Labrador. The explanation is in the Museo del Prado website (although the paintings I have asked rename are from the Museo Cerralbo, not the Prado, it refers to them in the text). (in english, from the Museo del Prado website):

and on the website itself of the Museo Cerralbo (in spanish):

Best regards. --Zumalabe (talk) 08:20, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

There is no map on the site. Where does the map come from? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:09, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Its a creative mapping as the Particular kingdom named its territories , then what license should I used to why seems tha map become so questionable ? (JournalmanManila (talk))
{question}} What do you mean with creative mapping? You didn't draw the map yourself by hand, just name the source. That's all. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:09, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Ordinateur Mammouth.jpg[edit]

Hi. I am new on wikipedia and I don't know how to properly import my images. I tried to import this file File:Ordinateur Mammouth.jpg and I thought I repected copyrights. Help please — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moctar.h (talk • contribs) 04:03, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

@Moctar.h: As a general rule: Don't upload photographs you didn't take yourself. Have a look at: Com:L as well. Cheers! C(_) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:08, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Phillip Medhurst Collection[edit]

Hi Hedwig, I sourced a huge pile of pictures from the Phillip Medhurst Collection, made a category for that Category:The Phillip Medhurst Collection and tried to cat-a-lot about 600 pictures into the category... being on a remote rural line, the cat-a-lot failed and I only got a few into the category before it stopped. Could you help with the rest of them? I found that both De Vere and Medhurst are contributors, just read their user pages which say all the pictures are from that collection, where it's located and where the online copies are (at flickr). I see a lot of good faith in all that, so I changed all the "no sources" to sourced from that flickr set and from the Real Life collection. I notice that the unique titles and creator's names are listed in the long file names of the files and they're all pre-1900 from published sources, so I think it's all good. Please let me know if there's any problem with the foregoing and also if you could cat-a-lot them into the category, that would rock. Thank you so much for all your hard work here! Cheers!! Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:56, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

I used VFC to add the category. I hate being online in a rural area. Testing my patience every time. ☈ --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:49, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Re: Temp undelete[edit]

I just checked Canadian Wikilivres but did not see the two files to be transferred. I do not know which tool facilitates such a transfer.--Jusjih (talk) 01:54, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

I asked Yann to finish the transfer, I don't have upload rights over there. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:29, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
