Why this edit?[edit]

https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Middle_East_Technical_University&diff=195001413&oldid=13927783

The category doesn't seem to make sense to me in this context. - Jmabel ! talk 05:25, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Jmabel, your judgment is probably definitely better than mine. Those fotos were in Category:Architecture, so I put them all together under the one name they all had and returned them to the same category (Architecture). Please do what you think best. All those many fotos under the general category Architecture but not in a sub category didn't make sense to me either but I didn't know what was best. (Some of those photos were already in the category, but I didn't realize that at the time. Now I see what a mess I made. Sorry.) Thanks, Kalbbes (talk) 12:36, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

walking street in Chiang Mai[edit]

Go have a look on Google Street View what the walking street in Chiang Mai looks like -> https://www.google.com/maps/place/Rachadamnoen+Rd,+Amphoe+Mueang+Chiang+Mai,+Chang+Wat+Chiang+Mai,+Thailand/@18.7879009,98.9895576,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x30da3aa213a1642b:0xaae6a3d0370d06e6!8m2!3d18.7879009!4d98.9917516?hl=en - Takeaway (talk) 20:45, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Takeaway, I can't make much sense of that map (poor eye sight). The category was probably a poor decision on my part. Kalbbes (talk) 20:56, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
It was really a puzzle for me because nothing in the images indicated either that they had been photographed on the non-existing "Walking street of Chiang Mai". - Takeaway (talk) 21:23, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
Puzzle to me now too, as I said on the cat discussion page. Kalbbes (talk) 21:32, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Category:Boualam village[edit]

Are you sure that Category:Boualam village is the name of a village? I always assumed that it was just the name of the uploader. See the text in his profile -> User:محمد بوعلام عصامي. Could you please revert your edits and also have the category deleted? - Takeaway (talk) 21:22, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Categories in Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Next time, also put categories into a location category such as here. - Takeaway (talk) 21:35, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

And try to be as complete as possible when creating categories. See for instance this here. - Takeaway (talk) 21:55, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

I also changed this because the category that you created (Category:Traditional dance with guests) is not a good category at all. The category name does not specify where it is but it was still categorised as if it was part of a specific location. It would be best if you asked for a speedy delete for the category because if I do it, it will first need to go through a whole deletion request system that will take at least a week and would involve more work for more people. - Takeaway (talk) 22:01, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi, in addition a further hint: please avoid to categorize images on 'state' or 'capital city' level which are tagged with the Template:Categorise, among them [Category:Kerala], [Category:Andhra Pradesh], [Category:Hyderabad, India], etc, as you increasingly started to do February 2017. thx and bibi, Roland zh (talk) 20:44, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Category:Akchour mountain. Akchour is not a mountain but a village. See -> https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akchour - Takeaway (talk) 21:42, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

As for Category:Piusa koobaste ümbrus, "Piusa koobaste" means "Piusa Caves" (for which there is already a category), and "ümbrus" just means "surroundings". Please do not just copy stuff int a category name if you are not sure what it actually means. - Takeaway (talk) 21:50, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

There is no Mohammedia Province. There is a Category:Mohammedia Prefecture. Read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Administrative_divisions_of_Morocco#Casablanca-Settat_Region for more info. - Takeaway (talk) 22:23, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

(edit conflict) Takeaway, I'm sorry. Maybe this isn't ok but I used this method for other countries successfully I think. When I finally obtained a map of Pakistan, I found I ultimately was accurate overall. It's a way for me to figure out the country, and I do keep track of these categories I make up. Then I update them as I learn more. If you would rather, I can just stay away from Morocco. That would be best I think. I don't want to upset anyone. Again, I'm sorry. Kalbbes (talk) 22:29, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
p.s. I didn't make up province. It was already there and the category came up automatically. Kalbbes (talk) 22:29, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
It would probably be best to stick to categorising things that are known to you. But if you do not know them, you should really verify things as much as possible before creating a category. If you are more comfortable and knowledgeable about Pakistan, perhaps it would be best to stick to recategorising files there. Just applying whatever someone has written in an upload as a category name is not a good idea because many uploaders, tourists for instance but also non-English speakers who are trying out their best English for wikipedia, have no idea themselves of what the correct name is for something.
You are correct, you did not create that province category. I discovered that a lot of them are incorrect. Other people who had no idea of what they were doing, apparently made those mistakes in the subcategories of Category:Provinces of Morocco. :( - Takeaway (talk) 22:38, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Trang trại.jpg[edit]

Just wondering what "Trang trại" is that you added as a category with this edit, and also, how do you know that the water in the background is a river? I changed the river category into Category:Unidentified bodies of water and Google Translate says that "Trang trai" means "farm" in Vietnamese. I don't think that just using a file's name as a category is a good idea, especially not if you yourself have no idea what it means. I suggest that you to stop using file names as category names. - Takeaway (talk) 15:43, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

(edit conflict) Takeaway, I don't know what "Trang trại" is, although I think it is a place. I don't read the Vietnam language so I'm trying to figure it out. I have looked through this contributor's photos; I think they would be an addition to the Commons if their location could be figured out. The up-loader does not seem to understand English, so I try to help out in such situations. My plan is to look through Vietnam categories and learn more about the country. This gives me pleasure and I have learned so much about the world doing this. Meanwhile, I try to add the photos to categories where there is some chance a person familiar with the language and geographical area will know and fix any errors I make. (I come across so many picture uploaded years ago that have been essentially lost because they have never been categorized. I have fixed the errors of others many times when I am familiar with the place and can confidently do so. When I have made numerous corrections to the mistakes of others I don't upset them by notifying them. Working on the Commons is a big learning curve and it is easy to become very discouraged. Is there a rule that my research attempts are forbidden or that I have done a large damage to the Commons in my efforts? Do you feel that I am a net negative to the Commons? If you wish I can stop categorizing on the Commons and go elsewhere on the web that I enjoy also. Please let me know if this is the case. I will leave instantly if that is you preference. I become sad when I receive your messages and feel there is no point for me to try to help out here. Best wishes, Kalbbes (talk) 16:21, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Takeaway, I see you changed your message while I was answering you. Your rewritten message is more helpful and less discouraging. I love looking at the photos and figuring them out, but perhaps I'm not up to the job. Best wishes, Kalbbes (talk) 16:27, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
If you use Chrome as a browser, you can highlight a piece of text, and then right click on it. The drop-down menu then shows you the option to choose to translate the highlighted piece of text. You can also copy and paste text and put it into https://translate.google.com.

Karakorams etc.[edit]

This is NOT Ladyfinger peak

Hi Kalbbes, I came across your categorization work in northern pakistan from time to time. And I must admit that I cannot agree with all your edits. First of all I am not sure if it is necessary to have sub-categories for views of mountains from similar directions. Take for example Ladyfinger Peak in the Batura Muztagh, a subpeak of Hunza Peak, which again is a subpeak of Ultar Sar. This mountain can only be seen from the Hunza Valley near Karimabad. Ok, there are some aerial views and a view from the rash lake area, too, but these are rare exceptions... I therefore emptied the categories Category:Ladyfinger Peak (Hunza Valley view) and Category:Ladyfinger Peak (Karimabad view) and had asked for deletion. I did so with some other mountain views, too.

Maybe there are some cases where it is suitable to sort mountain images by their views, but if you create those categories, you should IMHO be more consistent and put all files that are sharing a certain perspective in those new categories.

That needed to be said in the first place...

What I found even more crucial is the fact that you seem to derive category names from file names or image discriptions without verifying them. Please be aware that the info found in those files is not always correct. Especially some (not all) pictures that have been uploaded during wiki loves earth seem to be problematic. (Not talking about licences at all...)

So Ladyfinger Peak again. Please look at the picture. Filename says File:Ladyfinger_Peak_from_Karimabad_Hunza_Valley_Northern_Pakistan.JPG But it is not. This is Ultar Sar itself. Please compare with this Picture where you find Ultar Sar on the right and Ladyfinger Peak on the left. I had already corrected the image description to Ultar Sar when I changed the category to Ultar Sar, but now you re-changed it to Ladyfinger. I will revert this in a minute... (Of course I should have already asked for renaming the file to a name containing Ultar Sar, but I haven't done it yet...Did so just now... --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 22:06, 19 September 2016 (UTC))

So don't get me wrong, I make mistakes too. Just be a bit more careful and don't just relie on the first hand information of the original uploader when you create categories. best regards --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 21:47, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Spantik[edit]

and another one. You took all images from category:Spantik and moved them to category:Golden Peak some month ago. Why did you do that? That mountain is one of the eponymous mountains of the category:Spantik-Sosbun Mountains after all. --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 21:55, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Category:Carillon Point[edit]

I'm dubious about putting Category:Carillon Point as a child category of Category:Carillons in the United States. Apparently the three images we currently have in the category all do show the carillon, but Carillon Point is an entire complex of buildings. - Jmabel ! talk 00:08, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Jmabel, I agree with your conclusion re Category:Carillons in the United States. I copied that cat without sufficient thought. I should have been more careful. Thanks for checking it out. I've hopefully remedied the mistake by removing that cat and adding the three other Carillon Point images in Kirkland, WA. Also added another aerial view labeled Carillon Point, though perhaps that should be in a more general cat re Kirkland. Kalbbes (talk) 15:07, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Poor categorisation[edit]

Can you please improve your categories of Australian subjects? One of many examples include Category:Rock formations on South Pearson Island but also dumping photographs into city categories (e.g. Category:Sydney, Category:Perth and Category:Melbourne). You have also been putting categories of objects/places into a single category where it'll get lost. While most are uncategorised, there has been a handful whose categories were ok that have been part of the extra workload you've but onto others (which in some cases if worse than having it as 'uncategorised'.

What's the reason for this category-removal? (diff link) --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 19:57, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Rupert Pupkin, the reason I removed it was I felt that Ultar Sar was so far in the background as to be unrecognizable and therefore confusing. Just my opinion, and I'm sorry if I was mistaken. Kalbbes (talk) 20:04, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
OK, thank you, that's an explanation. But I would argue that it is visible enough. And therefore the image gives evidence that Ultar Sar is visible from Rash Lake. So I'd keep the category. --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 21:36, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Rupert Pupkin, I'm trying to be more responsible in naming Pakistan categories. I do almost always google, but didn't for that glacier.

Kalbbes (talk) 23:02, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
Hey, I'm sorry if I was talking too rude in the discussion. I didn't mean notorious. But on the other hand it wasn't the first time that I stumbled over (in my opinion) incorrectly named categories created by you. But I have to acknowledge that you're doing a lot of good work. Sometimes your categories could use a little fine-tuning ;-) , but without your work, too many files would remain uncategorized in the first place.

Be more careful[edit]

You recently created a useless category (Duck Valley, Nevada). This category has been made a redirect, sending all files to Owyhee, Nevada, which is the actual name of the town. Duck Valley is the name of the Indian Reservation the town is located within. I see you are working hard to categorize uncategorized items, and its appreciated, but be more careful with creating new categories for subjects you don't seem to know about. Famartin (talk) 21:55, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Famartin, I'm very sorry I upset you. I did spend time researching via Google and also I know there is a place called Duck Valley having lived in the area. Unfortunately there is no category for the Indian Reservation as there are obvious cultural biases on the Commons and I am very aware of this one. I realized that I took a risk when I couldn't tack a WP article on for verification to protect myself. I'm sorry you cannot be more tolerant. I fix plenty of mistakes by other people without complaining to them or drawing their attention to their missteps. I wish you could do the same. Kalbbes (talk) 22:12, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
Your comment is quite sarcastic, but I'm quite serious. If you actually did live in the area, you would realize that the category should be named Duck Valley Reservation. I went ahead and created it as a catch-all to include in the Idaho side, though all items within the Nevada side are properly referred to as Owyhee. Famartin (talk) 02:10, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi Kalbbes,

I think, you're one of Commons' most valuable categorizers! You deserve a little more merits, even if you make errors from time to time.

(I've worked a little bit on your Category:El Alamein 70th Anniversary Commemoration)

Category:Dureji tehsil: False info[edit]

Hi Kalbbes,


You have added Category:Dureji tehsil in Muhabbat faqir's shrine and on lahoot, can you please stop adding false info-category? Read:The shrine is in the Wadh tehsil of Khuzdar district but it is located in a remote, sparsely populated and mountainous area. People, mostly from Punjab and Karachi, visit the Shah Noorani shrine every Saturday as traditional dhamaal is held there in the night. Thanks BukhariSaeed (talk) 08:09, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

BukhariSaeed, I did not add false information. I removed some false information from an unverified source. I use Wikipedia for my information. I know nothing about what you are talking about above. The source you reference above is not a reliable source per Wikipedia guidelines for source validation. Thanks, Kalbbes (talk) 10:47, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
I know you're most valuable categorizers, but please read this pg 71: "La Makan Lahoot Sharif is located in a village Vadh, District Khuzdar, Baluchistan" -BukhariSaeed (talk) 10:55, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

((edit conflict)) BukhariSaeed, it is not my job to evaluate sources and vet information. That is Wikipedia's job. Just because a book has been written and information exists in writing does not mean it is unbiased and from a reliable source. Get it assessed on Wikipedia by those with extensive experience in assessing reliability and neutrality. We as those who categorize are not primarily in the role of evaluating the reliability of sources; this is doubly so when the information is of a religious nature. Thanks for understanding.

Category:Nanga Parbat (Rama Lake view)[edit]

Hi, as most (3 out of 4) pictures in that category stated in their descriptions: Nanga Parbat is not visible from Rama Lake. You can see some of the summits of Chongra Peak, which is east of Nanga Parbat but is considered as an independent mountain. So I opened a speedy deletion request for that category. Best regards. --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 19:37, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Rupert Pupkin, you will be happy to know that I'll not touch any pictures of Pakistan from now on. I never could figure out the "Monkey Puzzle" thing and should have stopped long ago. For a long time I thought of myself as "rescuing" pictures from Pakistan, since no one else was doing it! But now I realize that staying away from Pakistan is the secret to my happiness if I am to continue categorizing here. I am closing in on 200,000 edits and my only continuing problems are with you.

Category:Bologna[edit]

Thanks for uploading photos from Panoramio. Please note however that your photos are inappropriately categorized and it will take users quite some work to fix them. Kindly make sure you categorize properly the images you upload in the future!!--Desyman (talk) 15:08, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

Desyman, Sorry, for your having to work. I didn't upload those photos but categorized them generally from the "uncategorized" images for each day. I will be sure to leave them "uncategorized" in the future to spare you. That way you can go through the "uncategorized" images for each day and categorized them to your liking. Best wish, Kalbbes (talk) 16:01, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
My bad then, it is probably better to put them in Bologna's general category (at least i know they exist). It would be useful to signal this to the uploader, however, so that in the future he/she may be more careful. If you know how to figure out his/her identity, would you mind leaving a message in the user's talk page? Thanks and best, --Desyman (talk) 16:04, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
Desyman, why don't you do it? I have no way of knowing what photos you are talking about as I have categorized thousands of images since whatever ones you are referring to. Best, Kalbbes (talk) 16:12, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

Worthless categories[edit]

Hello, I think that categories such as this only pretend that the image is correctly categorized and remove the uncategorized template. It is better to keep it without such relatively worthless categories, so that the picture is listed as uncategorized and can be corrected in future. We have a routine on Czech Wikipedia to run quarries for new uncategorized pictures with Czech description and we fix all of those. Thanks --Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 10:00, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Vojtěch Dostál, Thank you for the information and I agree with your viewpoint. Somewhere I had read that these categories about men needed filling, but you are right that it is worthless.

Astoria[edit]

[2]: maybe I'm missing something, but isn't Category:Astoria, Oregon redundant to both Category:Views from the Astoria Column and Category:Astoria-Megler Bridge? - Jmabel ! talk 23:32, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Jmabel, I guess that everyone has their own point of view. One of my problems on the Commons as a user has to know detailed information about an image in order to find it. (e.g. in many cases, a user has to know an image's district or province in a country in order to know it exists. Or know whether its a village, city, populated place etc. Even though I lived in Oregon at one point and am familiar with Astoria, I never would have looked under the categories you mention to grok that a container ship could be off the shore of the Astoria I remember. Never would have thought it and didn't know about the bridge or column. I guess the whole area has become very urbanized since I was there last. Isn't the Commons supposed to be a communal endeavor? Please feel free to narrow down its category. I've stayed away from Washington State because you objected previously that I wasn't narrowing down the categories sufficiently. If you so wish, I can do the same for Oregon. Best wishes, Kalbbes (talk) 00:02, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
No, go ahead, I just suspect someone will remove it as redundant. - Jmabel ! talk 00:28, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Shwe In Bin Monastery in Mandalay[edit]

Shwe In Bin Monastery (1), Shwe Inbin Temple (2) and Teak Monastery (3) are all the same. I suggest to use (1) as name for the commons category, eventually redirect (3) to (1) and delete (2) after moving all files to (1). If this is ok for You I would do that work. Gerd Eichmann (talk) 18:52, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi Gerd Eichmann. Earlier today I make a redirect for the Shwe In Bin Monastery to the Teak Monastery [3] and have been categorizing the monastery photos I ran across as the Teak Monastery. So you are saying there is no temple? Just the Teak Monastery? If so, it's fine with me if you cat-a-lot the temple into the Teak Monastery. Thanks for letting me know that the temple doesn't exist. Best wishes, Kalbbes (talk) 19:14, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
Hi Kalbbes, we should use (1) as name for the commons category, because (3) is only a kind of nick name - the monastery has been bulit from teak wood, but its name is Shwe In Bin. What do You think about this suggestion? Gerd Eichmann (talk) 19:33, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
Gerd Eichmann, you are certainly more of an authority than I am on this subject. My only concern is that it's clear that the correct name is confusing to many, given the several ways used to spell it. My concern is that the common name "Teak Monastery" is probably more well known to users than its formal name. As long as there are clear redirects, so that those looking for the common name can find it. On the English Wikipedia, the monastery is apparently called Shwenandaw Monastery. On Google this name is more common as well. The Commons has a category Category:Shwenandaw Monastery. Could you clarify all this for me? Are these different monasteries or different ways of spelling the same one? I am now very confused. Kalbbes (talk) 20:02, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
Hi Kalbbes, the English Wikipedia has Shwenandaw Monastery and Shweinbin Monastery, two different things. The second one is our (1), spelled without blanks. Different spelling is due to the fact, that nobody except scientists use the scientific transcription from burmese to latin alphabet. Really confusing! What are we doing? Both monasteries are built from teak wood, which one is the real Teak Monastery? I hope You sleep well this night und dream in burmese letters! Gerd Eichmann (talk) 20:47, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Kai3952, I had only been editing on the Commons a few months, since January 2016, when I made those edits and made many mistakes. My knowledge has improved using coordinates on maps and Google translate. Hopefully I corrected the categories on those images correctly just now. Many apologies to you for any trouble. Kalbbes (talk) 12:49, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
It's okay. I just want to know why you do that. If the photo is not taken in Anle District, Keelung, then I'll fix the category. Thank you for your reply.--Kai3952 (talk) 13:01, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Kai3952, I don't know enough about the geography of the area to be more precise. Now I don't even try to categorize images from that part of the world, unless I already know the category. I don't go through "Media needing categories" very much anymore. I stick mostly to places I already know. Thanks for your help! Kalbbes (talk) 15:53, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Whatever the reason, if in the beginning you can't put the correct category in the file, then I would advise you not to add categories. It is hard for people to find incorrect categories, in contrast, it is easy to notice no added category in the file. Do you understand me?--Kai3952 (talk) 16:54, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Kai3952, I agree and that is what I do now. Best wishes, Kalbbes (talk) 16:57, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
No, I see you didn't do that. This edit is the first time I ask you, and this edit is the second time I ask you. Therefore, this shows that you didn't do that in the beginning. You don't seem to understand what I say, or you pretend that you understand. Do you know that you have caused me to do extra work?--Kai3952 (talk) 17:57, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Kai3952, then I don't understand what you are saying. I don't know what you are pointing out in your above note. I made a lot of mistakes in the past, but if you look at my editing stats, you will see that I do many edits and that I do best at making categories. Best wishes, Kalbbes (talk) 18:09, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
I do not think so. Because you mean like telling me that "I will continue to make the same mistake". As I said earlier, at these three photos, I see that you didn't do that. Obviously you need someone to remind you that put the correct category in the file. I mean to tell you that, if you can't put the correct category to the files, then I hope you don't to put any categories. This is why I will handle it for you. Since you know that you don't know enough about the geography of the area, why don't you ask for Taiwanese user to help you?--Kai3952 (talk) 19:53, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Kai3952, it has been a long time since I categorized anything in Taiwan. I realize that mistakes I made a year ago are catching up with me now and I'm sorry that I made more work for you. Thank you for your suggestion and if I ever find myself tempted to categorize anything about Taiwan, I will take your advice. Best wishes, Kalbbes (talk) 20:02, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

you better add template and make populated places in texas by county category first before towns in texas by county last —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 104.243.165.143 (talk) 00:52, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

so you're everywhere... ;-)[edit]

I'm planning a visit to this place [10] and I was only looking at pictures from commons on google earth... Then I saw that there were categories to be added... And usually I don't look at every History-page, but something didn't work properly with hotcat so I checked, and then I saw your name in the list... just to avoid the thought I might be editing files that you had worked on for a reason. --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 23:18, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

@Rupert Pupkin: Yes, I'm everywhere! I amaze myself even. There's hardly a country in the world I haven't touched. But don't ever worry about editing the same file I have. You seem to make very careful edits, while I can be a little impulsive. In fact, I've been speedy deleting some faulty Pakistan categories, made in 2016 when I was a relatively new here. Pakistan is the country I have the most trouble categorizing, yet I'm always attracted back to it. Kalbbes (talk) 00:02, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Re: Texas category[edit]

I have no objection to the new cemetery category. However, the name of the cemetery is so generic-sounding that I suspect there are lots of other cemeteries with the same name which may require disambiguation at some point in the future. For now, though, I don't think you need to cross that bridge yet. Fortguy (talk) 04:14, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Passu (village)[edit]

Hi, I just realized that there were two categories about Passu, Category:Passu and Category:Passu Village. The first one was more integrated and hat subcats so I decided against Passu village. I don't think the addition of "Village" is always necassary. --Rupert Pupkin (talk) 19:31, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Nom for deletion reversal[edit]

I notice that you rescinded your nomination for deletion of this one [11]. I believe that your original instinct was correct, and have added a rationale on the nomination page. Thanks. Acabashi (talk) 13:31, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

@Acabashi, thanks! Kalbbes (talk) 13:33, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Re:Thank you for all your wonderful photos[edit]

  • Thank you for your nice comments Kalbbes, you made my day. I appreciate the fact that you have dedicated your time to categorizing my photos. The reason that I haven't done it especially when I upload them is because I know that I will make a mess. I am not a professional, I'm just lucky at the things that I do. The Arizona Republic has even used my photos on a series of articles about historical buildings and such and they credit me, which is kind-of cool. You know what is kind of funny? I have uploaded hundreds of photos in Wikipedia and have not received one little barnstar for it (smile).

But, it doesn't matter my friend, I write in Wikipedia because I love writing and sharing what I know without expecting any type of recognition. That is why when my work in Wikipedia began to be recognized by the government, pentagon and so on, I was in total shock. Thank you once more, Marine 69-71 (talk) 05:29, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

@Marine 69-71: Yes, you have a definite talent. Even in simple things, like photos of houses; your house photos really stand out. But other subjects also. And Arizona is a beautiful place when photographed by you. Plus you photograph subjects that are really important but ignored by others. They look great with the infoboxes which they received right away. I hope any photos you uploaded to Wikipedia have been transferred to the Commons and are not languishing there.
