Astronaut transfer vans[edit]

hi Hunster, I am trying to sort out the various kinds of Astronaut Transfer Vans but feel I am not doing it quite right. Thank you for trying to fix things, and please try one more time to get things sorted out. I will be very glad to go with what you think best. cheers and best wishes, Daderot (talk) 22:25, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Daderot, I've reformulated the category structure. Check out Category:Astronaut transfer vehicles and let me know what you think. Huntster (t @ c) 02:52, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes! now things look very good. Thank you for excellent work. Daderot (talk) 10:17, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Daderot, good deal. I'm also going through and fixing category names for some other creations. In particular, naming schemes for collections are typically "item at location" (for outdoors objects) or "item in location" (for indoor objects). Parentheses are normally only used to disambiguate shared common names for different things: good examples are names like "John Smith (politician)" or "Ocean (ship, 1996)". Let me know any time you have questions about the site. Huntster (t @ c) 01:58, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

ESA images[edit]

Hi, Could I check whether this image's CC BY-SA IGO 3.0 is valid for reuse in Wikipedia? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 10:14, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Evolution_and_evolvability, it is not, which is why I had already nominated it for deletion. The Cc-by-sa-3.0-igo license only applies to the Rosetta/NAVCAM component, not the Rosetta/MPS images. Huntster (t @ c) 18:43, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
Ah, thank you for the explanation! I've contacted some people at ESA to see if there is any version of the image published under a compatible license. It'd be pretty disappointing for such a significant image to be inaccessible to Wikipedia. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 04:36, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
Evolution_and_evolvability, yeah, it's great that the Navcam images were released freely, but there are *so* many from MPS, CIVA and Philae that we could use. Good luck on your request...ESA said a year ago or so that they were working to relicense as many of their images under IGO as possible, but there's not been much progress.

The Life of Hurricane Irene from Caribbean to Canada Viewed by Satellites.webm[edit]

Thank you for your video upload. Is there an "easy" way to crop such videos? I work with FFmpeg and commands like "ffmpeg -i ###.mp4 -codec:v libvpx-vp9 -b:v 2000k -quality good -filter:v "crop=914:720:183:0" -an ###.webm are exhaustive. Warm regards --Ras67 (talk) 15:21, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Ras67, honestly, I just use online tools for my video needs. I certainly can't afford any proper software. I just regret the lack of precision and good compression, especially from our own conversion tool... Video Convert is convenient but the output files are horrifically size-inflated from what they should be. I'll drop here a few links to the sites I use when I get home from work.
