Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, Heironymous Rowe!

Adding categories[edit]

Hello! Thanks for categorizing your uploaded images. I just wanted to remind you to add square brackets around the Category:categoryname text, like this: [[Category:Category name]]. It's the same as you do for wiki links. See here for an example of the change.

Do let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything! Cheers, -- Editor at Largetalk 04:59, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

I noticed in my watchlist that you'd fixed them, you got to them all before I could get back to them. Thanks, lol, was gonna drop you a note at the time to say thanx for catching my fubar, but was already in the process of moving on to something in the real world. Thanks, not sure why I spaced that. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 05:48, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
No worries, we all fubar from time to time ;) I figured you were a somewhat experienced editor since you seemed to find your way around categories easily, but thought I'd drop a note just in case. Thanks for your contribs, the maps look great! -- Editor at Largetalk 17:33, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! They were all originally at the en wiki, but have had several people request that I move them to commons, I finally broke down and setup a commons acct. I've uploaded alot of other images, mostly pics of archaeological subjects, is there any way to do a mass move or is it one at a time as I've been doing? I've prolly got 75 or 100 images that could be moved, would save some time and energy. Thanks, H. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 21:32, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, if they're your own images you can perform a mass upload using tools like Commonist or Commonplace, which take away the hassle of uploading each image individually. There's no mass move tool that I'm aware of to move images from wikipedia to here, but for your own images you don't need to worry about keeping the original upload data and such, so you can perform fresh uploads using a mass upload tool.
Another bothersome task will be tagging the en.wp files to be deleted; however, that can be done with AWB fairly quickly (30 minutes for 100 files?). I think your best bet is to save all the files to your harddrive if they aren't there currently, mass upload them using one of the tools linked above, then use AWB (or ask someone with AWB priviledges, like myself) to tag the wpimages to be deleted.
If you need any help with this just give me a shout, I'd be happy to lend a hand! -- Editor at Largetalk 23:44, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Heironymous Rowe!

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.

Image-Converted to SVG (blue).svg
Please use SVG
Thank you for uploading File:Unintentional_prescription_drug_deaths-Ohio-2004-2008.jpg!

Did you know that the SVG format is often the best alternative for this type of image? Scalable Vector Graphics have a lot of advantages: They scale better, the file size is usually smaller then raster graphics, and they are easier to modify and translate, helping Wikimedia to distribute knowledge to all of the world. A lot of modern programs support SVG export, though the result is not always what you may expect. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask me, a member of the Graphic Lab, or the Graphics village pump. However, it will be also an improvement if you can export (save) this image in PNG format without artefacts and upload. Uploading images in SVG format isn't mandatory, but it would help. (Just to avoid any misunderstandings, please don't just put the raster image into a svg container as embedded raster.)[1] Thanks, and happy editing!

Your work[edit]

Just came across your image of Beausoleil. Nice! Thanks also for your many maps and illustrations of Mississippian culture. They help bring those powerful centers alive.Parkwells (talk) 12:31, 25 May 2011 (UTC)


Copper repoussé bird effigy, American Natural History Museum

Hey, my brain has been elsewhere recently. Amazing illustrations of the copper plates. I hope you are getting great book illustration and museum display gigs! Anyway here is one more image I have of copper repoussé plates, but unfortuately little to no information because the AMNH is in the Dark Ages. I don't know if it is Mississippian or Hopewellian or other. Keep up all the great work! Cheers, -Uyvsdi (talk) 03:22, 17 May 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Just uploaded a bad photo of a Lick Creek gorget. I changed the categories for Category:Citico, Lick Creek and Saltville style shell gorgets because these have nothing to do with water monsters/ukten/tie snakes/avanyu/etc. (my empirical evidence is that none of them actually have horns). They reference something completely different. Cheers, -Uyvsdi (talk) 03:33, 17 May 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Any interest in creating maps in SVG?[edit]

I recently noticed this map in an article I was reading, an image you apparently created four years ago. The image made a great addition to that article. As a map creator, I was wondering if you had considered transitioning to SVG as a file format for the maps you create. In addition to Commons:Transition to SVG, articles like Help:SVG and COM:MFC talk about advantages and techniques for working with SVG. Since you;ve been an active contributor for over three years I suspect you are well aware of this, but I thought I'd draw it to your attention anyway. 20:24, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Hopewell bird figure[edit]

Native North American - Bird Figure - Walters 2006155 - Side.jpg

I noticed you referred to this artifact as a pipe. The Walters calls this a (probable) atlatl weight. Did they get it wrong?

The Walters also asks for corrections, if you think they have it misdated.

Regardless, a beautiful piece of work. Great minimalist art, really. Best regards, Pete Tillman (talk) 20:02, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Photo date[edit]

Hi. Could you please clarify the date of File:Blue Moon Lost Bayou Ramblers HRoe 2008.jpg? The name and EXIF suggest it is from 2008, while the description states it is from 2011. Thanks for your attention. -- Infrogmation (talk) 06:10, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

The photo was taken in 2008 but uploaded in 2011. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 00:07, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I fixed the image description accordingly. Thanks for your attention.Infrogmation (talk) 00:52, 17 December 2012 (UTC)


Trophy.png licensing
Had a question about licensing for one of your images. Jimbo Cephus (talk) 21:12, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Joseph Broussard[edit]

Hi, are you the painter of the meanwhile deleted image File:Joseph Broussard Beausoleil acadian HRoe.jpg.? Or did you take a photograph of the painting somewhere? If you are the painter, you should say so explicitly. TIA --h-stt !? 13:21, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

I am the creator of the image. I painted the original 30" x 40 oil painting. I took the photo of the image. I uploaded the image. I'm not quite sure why the DR is being decided now in favor of deletion, I answered this on the deletion request when it was first made 5 years ago. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 19:44, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

File:Holly Bluff Aerial HRoe 2016.jpg[edit]

It seems your upload has gone wrong somehow. Could you re-upload it? --Túrelio (talk) 20:17, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I tried that, but will try it again. Weird. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 20:19, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
It might also be a problem of the Wikimedia server, as they have been slow now and then today. So, you could just wait a couple of hours. --Túrelio (talk) 20:20, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Right on. I just tried again and got the same result. Will try again later. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 20:21, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

I tried reuploading again, same result. So I tried to upload a different file, also same result. Not sure what is going on. When I click on the blank thumbnail image it goes to the uploaded image, which appears fine. So it appears there was a problem generating the thumbnail? Any ideas? Heironymous Rowe (talk) 21:28, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Damn, looks like whatever you did while I was typing the above worked. Wanna try it with File:Winterville Aerial View HRoe 2016.jpg too? Heironymous Rowe (talk) 21:32, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Poverty Point Mounds overview HRoe 2013.jpg[edit]

Hi, would you please add the newly discovered small "Mound F", as it is shown at File:Louisiana - Poverty Point - Karte.png. Source: TIA --h-stt !? 12:27, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Your Spiro bird cup[edit]

File:Spiro engraved shell HRoe 2005.jpg

I just posted a sharper version at File:Whelk shell cup, Woolaroc museum.jpg, which look like the same cup. Is yours from Woolaroc?

Hadn't been there in many years. They have some great Spiro stuff. Cheers, Pete Tillman (talk) 05:37, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Oh, and please have a look at the Talk page on my image. I'm trying to parse this as a bird image. I get the featheres (sort of), and presume the dots in cicles/diamonds are eyes. Ah, now I see a beak  ;-]
Well, they still look like spiky little SF aliens to me..... --Pete Tillman (talk) 05:47, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
It depicts an avian head. Think the head of a bald eagle, there is a beak, eyes, and the feathers going down the neck. I took the photo at Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. I believe the ones at Woolaroc are reproductions and not the real thing. Also, the one you recently added to the Spiro page is a replica too. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 17:39, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
