Col. Walter W. Williams[edit]

My mother is Margaret Warren. She gave me a picture of Col. Walter W. Williams, age 114, in about 1957. I was wondering if you are related to him. Please e-mail me, we are related to some Williams that came from Tennessee. If you are not, please disregard this message.

I forgot to give you my e-mail address, it is jrsouhog@hughes.net

Everything is copyrighted by default. (There are a few, limited exceptions, most notably for works of the federal government.) So even if the city government or the artist didn't intend to reserve any rights to this image, they have. If you want to ask the city to release their rights to the image (assuming these don't belong to the artist him/herself, which can be tricky to determine), you can look at the helpful guide at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Requesting_copyright_permission .

Rose with mantis[edit]

Hi,
Carol is not always easy to understand. I presume he considers one edit one polling. Nevertheless, I find it too severe for just a slight enhancement. Anyway, the result is your picture is going to be promoted. And about another crop, his comments were «suggestion with his support» (use of “Perhaps”) and not «condition to his support». That's not fair of him now to threaten with an opposition. --B.navez (talk) 16:50, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the guidance. I'm excited that the image will be promoted! Huwmanbeing  17:18, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Geotagging[edit]

How in the world can you find the exact location of pictures such as Image:Snowy corn fields in Forest Township.jpg? I could never do that unless I'd marked the picture on a map as soon as I took it. Nyttend (talk) 00:50, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

It's actually due to your good photo caption that I was able to pinpoint it. Given that the photo looked north from 26 in Forest Township, there was fairly short stretch of highway it could've been on. The four distinctive buildings in the background combined with the fringe of pine tree (both visible in Google Earth) zeroed it in to within a hundred feet or so. It's silly, but extrapolating a position based on small clues can be kind of a fun puzzle! Huwmanbeing  01:24, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Williamsport :-)[edit]

Wow, you are quick, I just uploaded those... --Dschwen (talk) 17:05, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Utterly irrelevant question[edit]

Because I live in Ireland, I'm not familiar with the sorority traditions of the USA. Can I ask why the young ladies in File:Alpha Xi Delta sorority rush.png are so formally dressed while attending school and joining a club? Stifle (talk) 15:44, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

By way of a disclaimer I should first mention that, even though I attended the university shown in the photo, I'm largely ignorant of the traditions surrounding what's known as "Greek" campus culture. However, I do know that the particular sorority shown in the photo is considered venerable and prestigious, and that there's a decent amount of competition to join, so the formality may be a reflection of that. I suspect it's also partly due to the fact that participants tend not to consider their fraternities or sororities to be just clubs, but something more important and lasting, hence their formal initiation rites. Certainly under normal circumstances students would never dress that formally!
When I took the photo, I recall that the sisters were singing in unison a sorority song to the prospective new members as they were ushered in -- another interesting tradition. Huwmanbeing  17:17, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

File:Benton County wind turbines.png[edit]

Do you know the camera location for this photo: File:Benton County wind turbines.png? I would like to determine whether the wind turbines are part of the en:Benton County Wind Farm or the en:Fowler Ridge Wind Farm. The upload date makes the former more likely, as the Benton County Wind Farm was operating in early 2008, whereas Fowler Ridge was under construction in 2008 and began operating in early 2009. --Teratornis (talk) 20:33, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Pano360 and non-JPG[edit]

Hey, where did you find a 360 non-JPG pano? --Dschwen (talk) 17:14, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

File:Ockley, Indiana panorama.png is the one I know of. Huwmanbeing  23:24, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
Not to start an argument here, but PNG is clearly the wrong format for this type of content. --Dschwen (talk) 23:46, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
When you say "clearly", is there a Wikimedia standard your alluding to, or is this merely a personal preference? Editing and re-editing a JPEG inevitably causes some loss; not so with a lossless and compression-artifact-free PNG which is one of reasons I prefer using the format. It does make for a larger file size, though not radically larger than a maximum-quality JPEG. (The 8MB file size of the PNG I mentioned actually pales next to some of the 20MB+ JPEGs in the 360 Panoramics directory.) Huwmanbeing  01:06, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
I was about to point you to Commons:File types but they actually recommend PNG if the image has never been compressed with a lossy codec (so you processed your panorama from raw?). Well, never mind then. It is just that I always find it funny to see images downscaled by a factor of 5 saved as PNG when they could have been saved at the exact same filesize at original resolution with JPG, and the total quality would still be vastly better. In a way saving downscaled images as PNG is a lossy compression, and one that is way less efficient than full size JPG saving. People generally get way too hung up on the lossy/lossless bussiness. For most applications JPG does just fine (and even better than PNG per my reasoning above). --Dschwen (talk) 01:18, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
As regards the 360-degree pano viewer, do you know if it might support PNG in the future, or is it intended only for JPEGs? (If PNG support isn't on the cards, perhaps the viewer could be made to fail more gracefully — when I tried it on the Ockley pano it gave screenfuls of garbage characters.) Huwmanbeing  14:13, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
I could probably add PNG support, but it would have to be by converting to JPG on the fly. --Dschwen (talk) 14:29, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
If do-able, that'd be cool. Pano360's an excellent tool and it'd be neat to have it available for images in both formats. Huwmanbeing  17:15, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Glen Hall[edit]

The store in Glenn Hall Indiana, a suburb of Westpoint Indiana, I loved seeing it as it is, and recalling how it looked 1945-1949. We lived in the store, Grandma baked bread each day for sale, and the odor encouraged purchases Jack D Singer, grandson o.

I recall how it looked in 1945-1949. My grandparents William R, and Myrtle Bradley owned the store. It puts me in perspective of how OLD am I! WOW!

Quick photo request[edit]

If you're still around, would you be able to get a photo for a pair of Tippecanoe County sites? There are two newly-added sites at en:National Register of Historic Places listings in Tippecanoe County, Indiana; one's an archaeological site in Tippecanoe Township (Indian Mound Drive, and look south down the bluff toward the coords), and the other's part of the Happy Hollow neighborhood of West Lafayette.
