Thanks! --WhiteWriter speaks 17:01, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello, tell me, did you find OTRS? I posted one of those, so you can find it easier... File:Banjska_front_view.jpg --WhiteWriter speaks 12:07, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Unfortunately, I'm not an OTRS user, so I can't confirm or deny (hopefully confirm) that the image may be used. It shouldn't take too long for an OTRS user to get around to it, though, perhaps a week or two? –Juliancolton | Talk 15:49, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Importer

Hi, Juliancolton. Could you flag me with the "Import" flag? I am currently testing import functions in relation to Bug 4547... Rehman 07:31, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Evidently bureaucrats can't locally assign the import flag (who knew?), so I guess you'll have to talk to a steward... sorry about that. –Juliancolton | Talk 13:32, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. Will ask a steward. Thanks! Rehman 13:59, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
The local stewards list is empty. Does it make sense to contact someone from another wiki? En.wiki maybe? Rehman 14:11, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

OTRS

Hi, Juliancolton. Could you flag my account as OTRS volunteer? I am now volunteering there. Thanks! Rehman 14:05, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Aye. –Juliancolton | Talk 20:36, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Account renaming

Hello, I've already been able to rename my account from "gaby_la_star" to "gbrlhtclcq" in the French and English wikipedia, but in commons.wikimedia.org my user name is still "gaby_la_star". Could you please rename my account from "gaby_la_star" to "gbrlhtclcq" ? That would be awesome. I want to rename because I don't want my name to be associated with "gaby_la_star" anymore. Thanks for any help ! Kind regards, Gaby la star (talk) 07:37, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Edit : Sorry, I now followed the procedure on http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Changing_username#Procedure :)

Re: Your RfA JDavid

Thank You :) If I have any question, I'll contact to You. Thanks :) JDavid (talk) 19:17, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Adminship

So... I was thinking about going for adminship here again. I am an OTRS volunteer and as you know an enWP admin. I would like to be able to help with COM:DEL as it always seems to be bogged down as well as help with "speedy" deletions. Let me know if you think I am adminable :p --Admrboltz (talk) 01:25, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Hey Russell, glad to see you're still interested. Just took another look at your vitals (contribs, deleted contribs, talkpage) and it seems to me the community would be readily willing to promote you to +sysop. We always need more admins over at DR, so if you're prepared to trudge through the years of overdue stuff, then I'd say you're good to go. Want a nom? –Juliancolton | Talk 02:55, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks :) and sure, go ahead. --Admrboltz (talk) 02:57, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
Awesome! Commons:Administrators/Requests/Admrboltz - let me know when you're ready to accept and I'll set it rolling. –Juliancolton | Talk 03:16, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Question

I do not at all mean to be rude by this question, but have you seen my last question at the "Changing username" page? If you haven't been online, I'm very sorry for "nagging" a bit, but I just wanted to make sure that you got it. Thank you in advance!

Dutch773

My apologies for the delay, I'll take a look in due course. –Juliancolton | Talk 19:48, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

I have replied at the page with the file in question. Reasons for deletion of my versions are, as you will find there, anonymity, bad quality, and because a new version is already up. Is it possible to delete my version and the reverted one by Jcb, which is mine as well, without deleting the new version that's in use? You would do me a huge favour, and I will not ask anymore of you.

Aude

I note that you put Aude at the bottom of the Commons:List of administrators by date -- hasn't it been our practice to put restored Admins back in their original position? #87 in this case?     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:56, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, I'm honestly not sure to be honest. In retrospect it seems more practical that way, so I'll try to do that from now on. Thanks. –Juliancolton | Talk 19:28, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

OTRS

Hi. I've noticed that I still have an OTRS operator flag, which is not valid anymore, because I ceased to be one some time ago. Could you please remove it from my Commons account? Thanks! Masur (talk) 19:22, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Sure, ✓ Done. Thanks for the note. –Juliancolton | Talk 20:38, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Unified account

There is a little problem with the user Gaijin. I use that name as my unified account, and the two contributions in Commons are related to articles I created in the Spanish wikipedia, so I don´t understand why the account here in Commons is not unified. Can you check if there is any problem? Thanks a lot! --210.165.148.173 14:28, 31 March 2011 (UTC) P.S. Here is my SUL data, and links to the two articles I mentioned: Blitz related to this sound file and Nakajima Sakae, related to this picture.

I solved it. I just requested a new password and used as new one my global password. --Gaijin (talk) 12:11, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

I have the global account associated with Tathar, and I'd like to use the same name on Commons, but someone currently has a Commons account of that name.

File:Sudbury sno.jpg

Hiya Julian, how are things? I have a question, licence for File:Sudbury sno.jpg says it is public domain because it's copyright expired, (likely because creation prior to 1923), but the date on the source says 1999 (also I doubt there was much thought put into observing neutrenos in Sudbury in 1923). The link is a NASA website (which would suggest public domain) but the credit is to a fella from Queens University, in Kingston, Ontario...Queens in cahoots with NASA = PD? Thoughs?--Kelapstick (talk) 19:42, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Undeletion query

Hello Julian!

I came across an old deletion request that was closed by you. I think that the deleted GIF picture should be undeleted: it's (probably) part of a derivative work hosted and used on DE-WP: de:Datei:BestandteileBewerbungsunterlagen.jpg (usage: Bewerbung). Could you please consider the revision of the deletion? Regards, Grand-Duc (talk) 20:16, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Undeletion

Please undelete file File:Mlawacentrumlotnicze.JPG and another files uploaded by same user in same time. It must be about 15 files. We have permission for this files in OTRS system (2011101310016599) from 18 days, but we have not active user with sysop rights in polish queues for supporting this.

File:Fuel impingement in an engine cylinder modeled with KIVA-3V.gif

I'm not familiar with the finer points of licensing on Commons. According to the summary, this image's author is the University of Michigan, yet the license says the file is PD because it's a work of the U.S. Federal Government. The source is listed as a Google cache copy of a page from the University of Michigan's website. I'm not extremely knowledgeable about Commons policies, but this seems a little fishy to me. Is there a template to add to an image description page to tag it for closer inspection? —danhash (talk) 20:15, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

De-adminship request closure

Hi Julian, would you mind taking a look at the long overdue Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb (de-adminship 2)? None of the other crats seem to be responding although it was posted at COM:BN 4 days ago. Thanks, Jafeluv (talk) 10:59, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

A script in your user namespace may stop working in February 2012

Hi Juliancolton, I found the deprecated function akeytt somewhere in your user-namespace, e.g. Special:MyPage/monobook.js, , User:Juliancolton/easyblock.js. It is likely that this will cause JavaScript errors after Commons is updated to MediaWiki 1.19 in February. You can simply remove this function-call as it currently does nothing. If you have a copy of user-messages in your script, you may remove it and instead activate User Messages in your preferences. Please also note that addLink is now natively supported by mw.util.addPortletLink. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 10:39, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

De-adminship warning

This talk page in other languages:

Dear Juliancolton/Archive 6. I am writing to you to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you Trijnstel (talk) 21:48, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Re: Your RfA

Thank you for the kind words - I will try to make as good use of the tools as I can, and although I feel quite safe in most situations, I will take you up on that declaration to help me out in a pinch :) Wpedzich (talk) 21:29, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Help with unified login

Hi Julian, thanks for helping me to sort out my login to Commons. However, I'm still having trouble with setting up my unified login because I've got the same problem with my Mediawiki Bazonka account (which I don't think I've ever used). I can't log in or change my password. Can you help please, or will I need to find a Mediawiki admin/bureaucrat to help? Bazonka (talk) 22:23, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

If Special:MergeAccount didn't work, then I think you might have to ask a bureaucrat at mediawiki to do the same thing I did. You should still be able to merge your global Bazonka account in the mean time, assuming you don't use the local mediawiki account very often, though. Keep me updated. –Juliancolton | Talk 00:34, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I thought I might have to do that. I wasn't sure if your powers of bureaucracy crossed over into other Wikis - obviously not. Bazonka (talk) 08:08, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I couldn't help with your issues over there. Hopefully you're a little easier off here at Commons now though. –Juliancolton | Talk 00:48, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I made a request for bot flag, I hope you approve it. Thanks in advance.--M.Gedawy Talk 15:42, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello

Hello Juliancolton, I hope I am not bothering you, but since you are a bureaucrat here on commons and I recognise your name from en.wikipedia I figured I would ask you about my current situation. Recently, I have been usurping accounts all over the wikimedia wikis, as detailed here. I was eventually hoping to obtain a Commons account by usurpation, but when I read the guidelines and found that an account with any helpful edits to its name does not qualify under the current rules, with no provisions for age (7 years since last editing), it seemed a little excessive, so I thought I would ask a few questions:

  1. I appreciate that the Commons usurpation guidelines are more strict than on other projects, but is there room for flexibility in the rules in a case such as this one (where the user is more than likely never to return)?
  2. What are the "GDFL copyright issues" (referenced on the COM:CHU/U page) a renaming could cause?
  3. Ultimately, is it feasible that I could eventually obtain the username on Commons?

Thank you for your time, en:User:Clay (en:User talk:Clay) (64.74.212.18 09:57, 6 March 2012 (UTC))

Clay, I am exactly in the same boat. I have been trying to usurp User:Ahmerkhan into my SUL for more than 3 weeks now, as I am using the same name on the English (en:User:Ahmerkhan) and German (de:User:Ahmerkhan) Wikipedia. I had successfully usurped the English one, but on Commons User:EugeneZelenko has rejected my request saying "User has useful contribution.". This however is not the case IMHO. That user I am trying to usurp has uploaded one picture of two cats back in 2007 which is not being used anywhere. He has no user page, no other articles, no contribution whatsoever. In fact he has probably never logged in to Wikimedia again after uploading the one (!) picture and never will, but it stops me from having a single username on all Wikiprojects I'd like to work in. Very frustrating. --212.183.20.34 11:31, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Here's the background: User_talk:EugeneZelenko/Archive15#Usurp_request_Ahmerkhan

Global account issues

Hi, i'm Silver seren over on English Wikipedia. I set up a global account a couple of months ago and, unfortunately, the Commons one didn't attach. It's only now become an annoyance, so i'm looking to get it fixed. Could you usurp the account on here (which seems to have never been used anyways) so I can reattach it to my global account? Silverseren5 (talk) 22:16, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Are you ignoring this section? Silverseren5 (talk) 05:04, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Former admin?

Hi Juliancolton. By coincidence I noticed you gave user PumpkinSky admin rights on 10 July. As for the reason, this is what I found in the log: "return of rights to former admin, resigned with no controversy locally. private correspondence." But PumpkinSky started contributing in 2011 and never got any admin rights nor was his account renamed. Did he have admin rights under a previous account? Could you please clarify this? Furthermore I'd appreciate it if you could add him/her to Commons:List of administrators and the other corresponding pages. A note on the Commons:Bureaucrats' noticeboard would be a nice thing to do too. Thanks in advance. Kind regards, Trijnsteltalk 20:11, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Okay, so I now noticed it's User:Rlevse. I added him to the list of admins, but imho as he was away for so long (1,5 year), a RfA would've been better. Trijnsteltalk 20:21, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
You know that I have been a supporter of yours - however I do think think that, given your own effective absence from the project, regranting admin rights to someone who left the project approaching two years ago without any mention to the community is not really right. I look forward to seeing something more public. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 21:14, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
My apologies if it's agreed that I was too aggressive. I haven't been editing or logging many actions for a while due to family issues and personal business, but I have not abandoned the project by any means. With that said, you are all absolutely right; I should have made a public notice, but failed to due to my own absent-mindedness. I'll do what I can to make this right. –Juliancolton | Talk 01:46, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
I've been keeping up policy and the length of time isn't a problem for me. I have been and will continue to be extra careful and check on things if I have any doubt whatsoever. PumpkinSky talk 02:29, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
To JC - I understand real life issues - we all have them and I do hope you find more time soon. I look forward to seeing some posting regarding this action on a community page in the next day or two. Admins are granted rights through the support of the community and the community must be informed of such actions.
To PumpkinSky. I am sure that you have kept up to date however the community has not been kept informed about this and you will find that there is effectively a new community compared to the time you left the project and many of those now active will not know you - they need to be happy with this. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 07:38, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

File:Airbus Beluga.jpg

Hi Julian, in January 2010 you closed a deletion request in which a large number of files was listed. Your decision was “keep”. This was probably right for most files, but what about File:Airbus Beluga.jpg? On the website it was taken from I read: “All images courtesy of USRA”, which is not NASA. -- Robert Weemeyer (talk) 21:33, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes, you are correct. Thanks for pointing that out. –Juliancolton | Talk 13:40, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Image permission

Hey Julian, can I ask you for some help? I just uploaded Henrik Vibskov.jpg, which was sent to me by his agency. I have the email message giving me permission, and I assume I need to send that to someone to verify the license (it doesn't actually mention the specific license, BTW, so I kind of you know ahem made a guess). Can you help me out? BTW, the guy looks super cool. I'm jealous. Thanks so much, Drmies (talk) 20:35, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Allow me to throw in two bits. I used to do OTRS. My suggestion would be to email the guy back, have him specify the license in a reply, then send it to OTRS Commons for processing. No one will ever question it. Make suggestions about which license to use in the email back to him. JC: file link is File:Henrik Vibskov.jpg PumpkinSky talk 20:56, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Hurricane Fifi (Fiji?) images

Hey,

Just a courtesy notice — I've renamed File:September 18, 1974 Hurricane Fifi weather map.jpg and File:September 19, 1974 Hurricane Fifi weather map.jpg from "Hurricane Fiji" (?). If I misinterpreted the titles, feel free to move back.

Forced user renames coming soon for SUL

Hi, sorry for writing in English. I'm writing to ask you, as a bureaucrat of this wiki, to translate and review the notification that will be sent to all users, also on this wiki, who will be forced to change their user name on May 27 and will probably need your help with renames.

Commons:Bureaucrats/Requests/Russavia (de-Bureaucrat)

I have very serious reservations about this process. First off how this vote came to start is problematic. Secondly we seem to have a non-Commons community (en.wikipedia) attempting to decide our Bureaucrats for us given the evidence of canvassing at least through Jimbo's talk page on en.wikipedia. And thirdly I do not think the issue is advertised enough for the general community to know. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:23, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Username change question

Hi Julian- I'm wondering if you might have a minute to look at a name change/usurp request I made a few days ago. Can you tell me if you think I've presented it properly? I should tell you that I contacted another bureaucrat a couple days ago to ask him the same thing, and he did not agree with the proposal. In the interim, I have received the consent of the target account holder. Thanks in advance looking in. --Eric my en.wp talk page 17:19, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

I personally don't have any objection, but there are very few local bureaucrats and I'd hate to unilaterally overturn the decision of a far more active (and therefore trusted) user. Could you let him know I think it's ok and see if he consents? –Juliancolton | Talk 04:40, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I'll let him know. He didn't decide against it--just told me on his talk page that he doesn't think it's a good idea in general to usurp usernames that are common names. But that was before I got in touch with the target account holder, who consented with no hesitation. Thanks. --Eric my en.wp talk page 12:48, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi Julian- Got a reply from Eugene, but not sure exactly how to read it. Seems he's more ambivalent than against... --Eric my en.wp talk page 18:57, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

This projects bureaucrat's are asleep at the wheel? -- please wake up

As we know from COM:BUREAUCRATS, "bureaucrats are expected be capable of leading where necessary and of guiding (but not imposing their will on) policy discussions and other major community issues."

I need to draw your attention to an issue which is going to blow up in the collective faces of this project, and with the exception of User:Odder, every single one of our bureaucrats has been asleep at the wheel. We are now destined for a trainwreck, and a whole heap of fallout. Numerous chapters, including Wikimedia Israel, Wikimedia Spain, Wikimedia Argentina and Wikimedia Venezuela, are going to be in a mighty pissed mood and ready to have the head on a stick of any bureaucrat who dares come along and do what has to be done for the good of this project.

As User:Odder has opined in the discussion, him doing what needs to be done will surely have cries of "INVOLVED" levelled at him, so this is now left up to the remaining 8 bureaucrats to snap out of the slumber they seem to be in as it relates to this issue, and deal with it before it blows up further in our collective faces.

Further information can be found at:

  1. Commons:Massive_restoration_of_deleted_images_by_the_URAA
  2. associated policy pages, templates, wikimedia-l mailing list, undeletion request forums, etc.

The community is waiting for immediate action on this issue. Can you please initially confirm that you have received this message, so that the community knows that you haven't died in your sleep :) russavia (talk) 00:10, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Dear Julian,
it is with a regret that I inform you that, following our de-adminship policy, you had your administrator rights on Wikimedia Commons removed today by a Wikimedia steward.

I would like to use this opportunity to thank you for your efforts and contributions in making Wikimedia Commons what it is today. If you'll feel like doing so at some point, please feel free to re-apply for adminship at COM:RFA. Again, thanks for all the help you gave us, and (hopefully) see you back soon! odder (talk) 21:07, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open!

POTY barnstar.svg

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Juliancolton,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.

Thanks,
-- Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 09:43, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States - Thank You!

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States - Logo (text under).svg

Hi there! Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States. We're excited to see people uploading thousands of photos from all over the country! You and others have collectively uploaded 4,929 photos so far, all of which are viewable at Category:Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States (sorted by state).

We encourage you to continue contributing through the rest of the month. Uploading your photos of monuments isn't the only way to contribute, however. If you're interested, we have compiled a list of auxiliary ways to contribute - which include improving Wikipedia's coverage of historic and cultural sites, as well as finding existing free photos that can be shared on the Commons. While these contributions don't count towards the contest, we are still keeping track of them and they are great ways to contribute to the spirit of the project.

If you are interesting in contributing to Wikipedia, WikiProject National Register of Historic Places is also great place to start. The WikiProject showcases the work that has been done so far in covering NRHP sites, and can also help you find articles that need improving.

If you're on Twitter, give us a follow Twitter Logo Mini.svg @WLMUnitedStates for updates, news, and more.

If you have any questions between now or the end of the month, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Thank you! ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 09:28, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States - Logo (text under).svg

Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States during the month of October! The United States contest saw over 1,700 people contribute over 11,000 great photos of cultural and historic sites from all over the United States and its territories. In addition to National Register of Historic Places sites, we welcomed uploads of sites designated by state- and local-level historical institutions and societies. Hundreds of these photos are already being used to illustrate Wikipedia articles!

We're excited to announce that our national judging process has concluded, and that we have selected the winners of Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States! We were amazed by all of the uploads, and regret having to narrow it down to just 10. That being said – congratulations to our national winners and their amazing shots! Our 10 winners will be sent to the international Wiki Loves Monuments jury, who will then select the winners of the international contest. If you're interested in seeing the winners of the other various national contests as they are announced, you may do so at Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 winners.

Finally, we have also created a feedback form for all participants in the United States to fill out. The survey is optional and anonymous, and only takes a minute or two – we hope to use the feedback to organize better events in the future!

Once again, thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2016, and we hope to see you again for future Commons photography events! ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 06:30, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Norrie State Park shoreline

I had the same idea as you last summer

Julian,

As I said when !voting for your image at FPC, I was similarly struck myself last summer at Norrie. Daniel Case (talk) 21:17, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

@Daniel Case: Great shot! I'd definitely support that at FPC. Conceptually the same as my nom, but the greenery really gives it an entirely different atmosphere. That stretch of shoreline there is a hidden photography gem, I think... my trips to Norrie always began and ended with the pier by the visitor's center until I started doing some exploring last winter. I'm pretty sure there's a photo to be had on/of the breakwater across from the marina, maybe a long exposure of flowing ice, but the conditions haven't worked out for me so far. –Juliancolton | Talk 16:06, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Photo versions question

Hi Julian (or anyone reading this). I have been learning how to use photo improvement software. But sometimes when I upload new versions of a photo, the version displayed at the top of the File: page is the previous version, not the freshly uploaded one. Am I doing something wrong or is this just an issue with file caches not being updated yet? Thanks. PumpkinSky talk 00:22, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

@PumpkinSky: Yup, that's perfectly normal and expected from the cache being out of date. Check out Help:Purge. Sometimes a simple purge shows the latest version for me but other times it seems to require a sequence of purging and refreshing. –Juliancolton | Talk 00:31, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. I just took a bunch more pics of that chicken flock. We'll see what comes of it. PumpkinSky talk 00:40, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Very nice, look forward to seeing some of them once they're uploaded. I think you said you just got your new camera recently, how do you like it so far? My old D5000 was (and still is) a great camera, so hopefully that held true for the newer models in the line. –Juliancolton | Talk 00:51, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
I love it. I've had it maybe 3-3.5 weeks now. I'm slowly getting better at photos. I really like macro but have learned it's one of the trickier parts of photo taking. I have 3 lenses: 18-55mm, 70-300mm, and a macro 85mm. I uploaded modified versions of my QI and VI pics; I keep a running list on my user page at the bottom. The chicken one and the VI ones are just waiting for a bot run. The others are pending review. I'll let you know when I upload the latest chicken pics. Should be sometime today. PumpkinSky talk 01:08, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

More Thai chickens

I've uploaded nine more.

The original one, which is now officially QI, is here and I did some touch ups on it last night, the legs are much sharper:

The others are here, I cut off their legs in "white head 2" and "white head 3" so I didn't retouch them and won't put up for QI. I know what I plan to do with them and which two I think are best, but if you have the time and inclination, I'd like to know what you think.

I have five others at QIC right now. I think the Buddhist temple ruins one will be successful. Not to sure about the others. Thanks. PumpkinSky talk 22:56, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Nice shots! Definitely some QI contenders in there... red 1, red 3, and white head 1 have a good shot for sure. I really like the lighting and processing on white head 4 which I think might benefit from a crop. Your technique is solid - it's good to see you aren't afraid to boost your ISO to keep the shutter speed nice and fast. Many folks just learning photography (myself included at one point) try to get away with low ISOs when shooting handheld in overcast conditions, and only end up with lots of motion blur. I really like the temple shot, by the way. That one might stand a chance at FPC if you can deal with the slight chance that the hivemind is in bad mood on the day you nominate it... –Juliancolton | Talk 03:08, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the helpful and positive feedback!!! After I made the above post I nom'd one flower and 4 more temple shots, a different one than the first temple. As for FPC, do you mean the first one: File:Wat Mae Chon ruins 2 -Sukhothai.JPG or one of the ones I just uploaded (Wat Chang Rob)? I keep a list of all my pending noms at the bottom of my user page. Right now there are 10 at QIC that need reviews. I'll crop white head 4. I have to wait to tomorrow to nom more as I hit my quota of 5 this am. PumpkinSky talk 08:23, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Glad to help! And yes, sorry, that's the one. If any of the QICs are still awaiting review this afternoon, I'll head over there and take a look. –Juliancolton | Talk 14:51, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. You've been very kind and helpful. PumpkinSky talk 22:57, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Down to 7 noms. That's ok. I knew they all wouldn't make it. In a bit when the next wiki day rolls around I'll put up 5 of the chickens--the more you mention plus the preening one because IMHO that one's pretty good too. Even when my noms are declined I learn from the comments. See email too if you haven't already. All my Nikon D5300 pics on commons are here: User:PumpkinSky/Uploads/2017, including the Thailand ones.

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Juliancolton, congratulations! You now have administrator rights on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard an it subpages), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Have a look at the list of Gadgets (on the bottom there are the ones specifically for admins – however, for example the UserMessages are very helpful too).

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons-lr webchat on irc.freenode.net. There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators: #wikimedia-commons-admin webchat.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading. You can find the admin backlog overview at COM:AB.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references.
