Files from Ministry of external affairs Flickr Acoount[edit]

Hi @Jkadavoor: there are more than 30,000+ files in MEA flickr stream but all of them are copyrighted which is against GODL-India, is there is any possible way to transfer these files to commons [1] Perumalism (talk) 15:56, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Perumalism: The banner there says "all photographs are free to use". You may ask them through Flickr mail to change the license by mentioning GODL in the profile page. I randomly checked some images; most of them seem copied from pib.nic.in If true, we can find better copies there. Jee 16:08, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
I have mailed them couple of times but no response from them, if the files are available in pib.nic.in okay then. Hope near-future someone would develop a bot for mass transfer of files from pib.nic.in Face-smile.svg Perumalism (talk) 16:37, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Indian coast guard[edit]

Hi, I would like confirmation that these are OK:

Thanks, Yann (talk) 14:10, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

OK, thanks. It could theoretically be that the Indian coast guard is not the source. I doubt that the first image is own work. I would just like to be sure that my reviews are correct, and I am fine with whatever consensus we have about these cases.
What about images which are obviously from the Indian government, but we don't have the source (e.g. File:MI-35.JPG and File:SU-30.jpg)? Is it OK to put them in a category Category:Images from the Indian government with broken source and to forget about the review? Regards, Yann (talk) 16:02, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
The problem with IAF is that they do not keep old photos in ther gallery. So we can't find the source of old uploads. I think they can be kept in that special category and we can review future uploads. Jee 16:14, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

GODL-India[edit]

Hi, When I review the source, I check that there isn't a higher resolution available. If there is one, I upload it over the file (File:Rajiv Gauba, IAS with Rajnath Singh, Kiren Rijju and Rajiv Mehrishi, IAS.jpg). We need a way to check that. What do you think? Regards, Yann (talk) 13:23, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

And here, it is the wrong source. Yann (talk) 13:25, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
Oops; sorry, don't know how I missed it. Regarding higher resolution, it is possible to upload one by one while we review them. Perumalism's comment above is also interesting. We may ask at COM:BATCH to upload contents from PIB using script. Jee 13:37, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Money of India[edit]

Hi Jee, Do you think we can now undelete Commons:Deletion requests/Money of India2 and Commons:Deletion requests/Money of India. If {{GODL-India}} applies to all works made by the Indian government, it also should apply to banknotes, isn't? Regards, Yann (talk) 16:52, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Yann, {{GODL-India}} is applicable to works by RBI too; but we should be careful as chances that some existing laws may prevent the reproduction. IPC 489E prohibits "making or using documents resembling currency-notes or bank-notes". I don't know how much it is applicable to photos and scans. Jee 02:23, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi, Thanks for your answer. I would interpret that as "printed documents". A picture isn't a document resembling a banknote. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:12, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
May be; but not sure. Jee 10:25, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Crowdfunding Campaign for a new computer for User:Jkadavoor[edit]

I'm starting this thread here, but it might be moved to some other page later. Anyway, for most of the FPC regulars, Jee and his work needs no introduction. Ever since he got his good camera equipment, he has been dazzling us with his photos of butterflies, moths, caterpillars and bugs. This has now unfortunately come to a bit of a halt since he no longer has access to a good computer on which to process his photos. He is now editing via an old (XP) computer with not enough capacity for hi-res photos and sometimes even on his mobile due to constant breaks in the power distribution. Some users here have also been kind enough to edit his raw files and they have so far resulted in QIs, VIs and FPs. I know that the Wikimedia foundation sometimes contributes with computers and other equipment for valued users, but that takes time, a lot of paperwork and it often comes with some sort of conditions. I think that we, Jee's friends here on Commons, could pool our resources and get this done quicker and better.

The previous crowdfunding we did here for Jee went through Indiegogo. Another campaign we did here was for The Photographer through Generosity. Generosity, had better contitions, but it has now beem merged into Gofundme which is a part of Indiegogo. Unfortunately, that branch does not list India among the countries it supports, so it looks like we should go with the normal Indiegogo. One advantage with using the same platform is that we can use the first campaign as a template when we set up this one and also refer back to that first campaign and its very successful result.

A new reasonably good laptop costs about 40,000-50,000 INR (USD 585-730) in India. Indiegogo also charges a fee of 5% and the credit card company 3%+$0.30/per donation. There is also a transfer fee of $25. To cover all of this we would need to raise about USD 830.

I'm not that familiar with what programs for raw processing there are for free, so we might consider an Adobe license (PS and LR) as a second goal.

So, what do you say, shall we get started? Suggestions and ideas are very welcome. --Cart (talk) 19:16, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Let's get this started. I'm in. --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 20:02, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Seems like several good-causes fundraising sites have merged into GoFundMe, and the latter only supports a limited number of countries. However, this comment says "you may ask a friend or family member who is a citizen of one of the supported countries to start a GoFundMe campaign on your behalf." GoFundMe has 0% platform fees only in even fewer countries; some still have a 5% fee. In addition, if donors pay by credit card, there may be a foreign-currency transaction charge, depending on your card or bank. I know in the UK there are a few cards that charge no fee (I have one), but many charge up to 3%. Not sure what the deal is with US and EU credit cards -- would like to hear from others about that. I believe the currency exchange rate offered by credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Amex) is considered to be as good as it gets, so it is just the fee to worry about. Perhaps if most donors are in the Euro, it would be slightly better to host the fundraiser in a Euro country that has 0% platform fees.
So I think we can avoid the Indiegogo 5% platform fee. I would be happy to setup the campaign if we think having the campaign in GBP will not be an issue, and Jee trusts me not to run away with the money! GBP also has some Brexit turbulence, but I guess nobody can predict which country might do stupid things. Perhaps someone in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands or Spain could offer a better hosting country/currency? -- Colin (talk) 07:48, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Cart, Frank and Colin. Feel free to use any project convinent to you and the donors. I have no problem in Colin or Cart host it on behalf of me. Hope to be back from hospital soon. (From mobile) Jee 14:26, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
My gut feeling is that any international fundraiser would be best conducted from the UK where Colin is based. I think the banks there have better connections to banks in India than Swedish banks. So if you Colin are prepared to host this, I have no problem with that. Just tell us what help you need. --Cart (talk) 14:48, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Help needed on Flickr[edit]

Hello.
Some months ago we collaborated on the {{GODL-India}} template. May you now help me a bit with Flickr? I need to contact certain Flickr user – but haven’t an account myself, don’t usually register on a site having no intention to contribute, and in any case a message from an established Flickr account will be more credible. Could you pass an information to that user on my behalf? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:39, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

I'm in hospital now. Will be back after a few days. Jee 04:50, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
Returned. Incnis Mrsi, let me know the details. Jee 12:09, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

I’m glad to know that you are well. Emailed. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:40, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

PIB naming convention[edit]

If you find a file name in pmindia.gov.in of the format sYYYYMMDDxxxxx.jpg or lYYYYMMDDxxxxx.jpg (for example http://www.pmindia.gov.in/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/s2016050182127.jpg), the image is also published at PIB. The last 5-6 digits form the PIB photo ID and you can append the the ID at the end of the URL http://pib.nic.in/newsite/photo.aspx?photoid= to get to the picture. For the example that I gave before, the PIB photo ID is 82127 and the URL is http://pib.nic.in/newsite/photo.aspx?photoid=82127. Sometimes pmindia.gov.in and the Flickr stream have lower resolution images, but PIB will always have the full resolution image. —Gazoth (talk) 04:28, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Only a formal, authoritative publication synonymising parrhasius with contracta would be reason to change the status here.

Hi ACCassidy, please check the links in Luthrodes contracta (Butler, 1880). Stempffer, 1967 The genera of the African Lycaenidae (Lepidoptera: Rhopalocera) Bull. Br. Mus. nat. Hist. (Ent) Suppl. 10 : 248 says Luthrodes contracta (Butler, 1880) is a synonym of Chilades parrhasius (Fabricius, 1793). Jee 14:40, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
