File:North Santaim River at Niagara County Park.jpg[edit]

Hi Jsayre64; Please take care to follow the enumerated rename criteria of Commons:FR#What_files_should_be_renamed.3F.[1] Also, please avoid introducing obvious errors in file names (e.g. wrong proper noun). It is Santiam not"Santaim". Kindly note that it is "best to leave all files with generally valid names at their locations, even if slightly better names may exist." Thank you, Walter Siegmund (talk) 19:16, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about my spelling error. I'm not a filemover, so I've tagged the image for renaming once again. The reason I requested a move was because the original filename was misleading; it said "File:Santiam River 06268.JPG" although according to your description, the photo is of the North Santiam River. Thank you for showing me the file-moving criteria, however. I tend to request moves a lot, so that will be useful in the future. Jsayre64 (talk) 03:23, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
"North Santiam River" may be a somewhat better title than "Santiam River" but I probably wouldn't bother to rename it. As one of two major tributaries, the North Santiam River is closely associated with the Santiam River. I'm happy to help. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 03:58, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

marys river[edit]

should be fixed now, thanks for noticing Famartin (talk) 00:51, 24 November 2014 (UTC)


You were right in the first place :-) File:Calocedrus decurrens, young specimen, OR.jpg is Calocedrus decurrens not Thuja plicata; I've renamed it back to the original name (except ending .jpg rather than .JPG, as the file rename software won't allow cap "JPG") - MPF (talk) 13:24, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

@MPF: If you really think so. It looked more like incense cedar, but it was surrounded by western red cedar in an ideal western-red-cedar environment. Jsayre64 (talk) 15:10, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Yep; it has the more open shoot structure of Incense-cedar. Western Redcedar has much more closely-spaced side shoot branching. Might be worth getting more pics of the other trees if you're in the area again. - MPF (talk) 15:30, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
As an aside, Commons is in general still rather short of decent close-up pics of foliage / cones etc., of N American conifers in their native environment (why do people only ever take close-ups of dubious cultivated plants???) - the more you can get, the better :-) Some Lawson's Cypress and Brewer's Spruce would be particularly welcome! - MPF (talk) 15:44, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I definitely enjoy photographing native tree species. I do need to get better at identifying them, which of course can be hard. I use a pretty ordinary camera, so it's hard to get good close-ups, but I've done some and I'll keep working at it. And I do have a Brewer's spruce photo, by the way. Jsayre64 (talk) 20:30, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Excellent pic :-) Any you can't identify, just add them to Category:Unidentified Cupressaceae / Category:Unidentified Pinaceae etc., and I'll see what I can make of them (I check those cats for new additions regularly) - MPF (talk) 15:51, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I've put some of my mushroom photos in "unidentified" categories before. Jsayre64 (talk) 03:26, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
