Wiki Loves Monuments is over[edit]

Uploading pictures of monuments is great. Thank you for your continued participation. But there's no need to keep tagging your photos as part of WLM 2012; it ended more then 10 days ago. Ntsimp (talk) 03:19, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2012!

Dear KLOTZ,
Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, and for sharing your pictures with the whole world!

Thanks to the participation of people like you, the contest gathered more than 350,000 pictures of cultural heritage objects from 36 countries around the world, becoming the largest photography competition to have ever taken place.

You can find all your pictures in your upload log, and are of course very welcome to keep uploading images and help develop Wikimedia Commons, even though you will not be able to win more prizes (just yet).

If you'd like to start editing relevant Wikipedia articles and share your knowledge with other people, please go to the Wikipedia Welcome page for more information, guidance, and help.

To make future contests even more successful than this year, we would like to invite you to share your experiences with us in a short survey. Please fill in this short survey in your own language, and help us learn what you liked and didn't like about Wiki Loves Monuments 2012.

Kind regards,
the Wiki Loves Monuments team

Your uploads[edit]

The images that you have uploaded recently are some of the best pictures that I've seen on Commons in some time, both in quality and historic value. They are remarkable, and I thank you for donating them to Commons. Can you please give some their backstory to how you got such an impressive collection of photos of hard-to-reach historic locations? --GrapedApe (talk) 18:48, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

user cats[edit]

Hi KLOTZ, user-categories, such as your Category:PHOTOGRAPHS BY USER: KLOTZ aren't part of the general category system of Commons, but should be tagged as user category, as is your Category:Photographs by User:KLOTZ. As the first cat was anyway redundant to the second cat, I've recategorized all content from Category:PHOTOGRAPHS BY USER: KLOTZ to Category:Photographs by User:KLOTZ. --Túrelio (talk) 13:56, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Вы хотели узнать, почему фотографии о национальной библиотеки удалялись. В Беларуси отсутствует Свобода панорамы. Фотографии о национальной библиотеки Белоруси (и вообще новых домов в Беларуси) поэтому не разрешаются здесь. Taivo (talk) 07:57, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Translation You wanted to know why the pictures of the national library were removed. In Belarus, there is no freedom of panorama. Photos of the National Library of Belarus (and more generally of new houses in Belarus) is therefore not allowed here.

File:NATIONAL LIBRARY OF BELARUS - MINSK.jpg[edit]

I am copying what you wrote at the above file here:

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THESE PICTURES WERE DELETED. I TRIED TO CONTACT THE PERSON WHO DELETED THEM BUT COULD NOT GET THROUGH. I SPENT SEVERAL WEEKS IN MINSK LIVING AT THE HOME OF MY DAUGHTER WHOSE HUSBAND WAS THE CHARGE D'AFFAIRES OF THE UNITED STATES IN BELARUS SO I KNOW THESE PICTURES ARE LEGITIMATE PICTURES. HER HOME WAS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE LIBRARY WHICH I VISYED SEVERAL TIMES.

The basic issue with the photograph is that the National Library of Belarus is a copyrighted building, so even though your picture of it is fine (you agreed to a free license for your work as a photographer), the building itself cannot be freely photographed and then published. Commons is only for images that are free in all aspects, since the building itself is copyrighted by the architect, that makes any photo of it ineligible for Commons. You could put the photo of the library on the English Wikipedia under a Fair Use claim (as there is an article on the library there). Please email me if you want to put the picture on Wikipedia. Ruhrfisch (talk) 21:10, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Copied from Commons Upload Help:

HI, CAN RUHRFISCH PLEASE WRITE TO ME AT MY EMAIL ADDRESS. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO REACH HIM OTHERWISE AND I WISH TO COMMUNICATE SOME INFORMATION CONCERNING THE BELARUS DELETION. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO HAVE HIM PUT IT ON THE BRITISH EDITION OF WIKIPEDIA. ROY KLOTZ

I will email you next. It is easiest for you just to reply here on your talk page (if you want). Ruhrfisch (talk) 03:22, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Hotel Nipton correction[edit]

The file you have as File:HOTEL NIPTON IN KELSO, CALIFORNIA.jpg is actually in Nipton, not Kelso. I've already requested a rename to File:HOTEL NIPTON IN NIPTON, CALIFORNIA.jpg here, but I'm letting you know in case you want to change it on your own computer also. The photograph's timestamp was 2004-06-22 06:30:00. Thanks for your contributions! --Closeapple (talk) 01:16, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

It was renamed to File:Hotel Nipton in Nipton, California.jpg. Just updating you for your own info. (As the uploading user, you probably have it on your watchlist anyway.) --Closeapple (talk) 22:06, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately there is no Freedom of Panorama in Belarus for targets whose architects/ designers are still alive or it is less than 50 years since their death. Thus even excellent photos like this which might violate copyright laws, could be deleted from Commons. Kindly note, however, that citation use might still be allowed. In such a case this (these) photo(s) should be - without delay - saved to and used from national wikipedia (as they are likely to be deleted in Commons).

Probably not a good idea to upload lots of photos with black bars along the top and bottom. If they're DVD screen captures, then you would need to explain more about the source... AnonMoos (talk) 01:35, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

User KLOTZ has traveled much of the world over the years and is an avid photographer of historic sites and natural sights. The photos with the black bars are scans of older slides and/or prints. Ruhrfisch (talk) 14:30, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Just checking[edit]

Bedens Brook ROAD Bridge?

I think the photo

File:Bedens brook road bridge.jpg

is actually the similarly named "Bedens Brook ROAD Bridge", there already being a photo for the "Bedens Brook Bridge."

Bedens Brook Bridge

"Bedens Brook Bridge" has a different structure (2 arches and no high wall in the middle) and from what I can tell from from Google Street View is correctly placed on the list.

If I'm correct, the title is very easily changed - just let me know.

Sincerely,

NRHP[edit]

Thank you for you continuing contributions. Just an FYI on National Register sites. I've done my share of photographing NRHP locations in Florida. I have run into no-longer-existent sites as you have. If you aren't aware, you can use Google Street View to check out most spots now. It wasn't too developed when I started my marathon photo roadtrips in 2007, but now pretty much the entire US is covered. Should you go on longer trips, it can be good to know ahead what is and isn't there. I also find myself revisiting favorite places I've been virtually. Saves money on gasoline, doncha know. Anyway, cheers, and have fun with the phototrippin'.  :) --Ebyabe (talk) 14:29, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:Upperville, Virginia[edit]

Hello. I have created Category:Upperville, Virginia, and added some of your pictures of Upperville to it. Let me know if you can take more--that would be great. Are you able to take a few pictures of the main streets and main buildings? Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:40, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Van Ness House[edit]

I came across this file that you uploaded. I found it because I'm looking at the media that has invalid syntax for the {{NRHP}} template. You put a note on it saying that it might be listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). I also can't find it listed, but I see a couple of things that might be confusing the issue:

  • There is another "Van Ness House" in New Jersey that is on the NRHP. The English Wikipedia article about it is at en:Van Ness House (Fairfield, New Jersey). Could that be the house that the New Jersey commission was referring to?
  • There is this "thing" where properties are found to be eligible for the NRHP, but they aren't necessarily added to the list. Could the commission have said that it had been found to be eligible, rather than actually listed?

In any case, because of these doubts, I am taking the NRHP info off of it. It can always be added back if we find the evidence.

I did find Category:Van Ness House, which is for a house in Pequannock Township, Morris County. The house in that category doesn't look like the house in your upload, though, so I am not putting it in there. It's reasonable to think that there were multiple people with the same surname in the area, and so there could be multiple houses called "Van Ness House". Still, take a look at the category to see if you think they might be the same. Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 04:56, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Dates / Places[edit]

The Samuel Miner House you took a picture of was destroyed a decade ago. You snapped the Shuntock Brook bridge and Hewitt Farmhouse instead. Also this is not March 2008, this is early October 2014. That dam wasn't wrecked until 2010 by floods. Could you please fix the dates as well? Another one, the Hallville Mill seems to show pre-replacement of the front. Seen in the right of the picture. That was probably done in the last month or so. Also... I've been looking for the Ashland Mill Bridge which was moved in 1999 - did you managed to track it down and snap a photo of it?

Hi KOTZ, indepedantly of the above mentioned DR, I would like to know whether the original photo was really shot in February 2014. It doesn't look so. --Túrelio (talk) 07:53, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
