Just to let you know that I am using your picture in a power point text book for AP Physics to help illustrate electric generation through magnetic effects. Thank you.

Hello, Sidpatil!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Use of Tie-Dye Picture[edit]

Hello Siddharth. I used your tie-dye picture to promote my libertarian politics. I hope you don't mind! End result: A Libertarian World Could Be More Colorful.

I don't mind at all! Thank you for using it! --Siddharth Patil (talk) 13:28, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello! I'm also using your tye-dye picture. It's going to be a background in a Gamestar Mechanic game (Wiki Page.) I plan to enter the game in a contest sponsered by Scholastic, in hopes of winning a 'Golden Key Award' and 1000 U.S dollars! The game? I'm still currently making it, but I should be able to post a link here when I'm done with it. -Robby P.S: You can look for me in GSM. My username is Thegreenrobby.

Hello! I'm also using your tie-dye picture on my blog. I have only just (September 2013) created an account here, so sorry for the delay. --Sue

Hi Siddharth Patil,

I am using your photo in a brochure about producing and selling compost in Oregon for the Oregon Department of Agriculture Pesticide Division. Of course I included an attribution crediting you for the photo. Thank you for making it available.
Thank you for using it! :-) --Siddharth Patil (talk) 00:43, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello Siddharth Patil, I'm using your photo (cropped for emphasis) in an article on on composting, and I'm making sure to credit you as the source. You can see it at --Jennifer September 2012

Thank you for using it! However, I'm getting a 404 when I go to that link. :-/ --Siddharth Patil (talk) 23:14, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I don't get the 404 anymore. Nice website! --Siddharth Patil (talk) 17:23, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

== Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture ==

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture ( I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at:

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at:

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: Slang Dictionary link at:

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

Your content in Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision museum exhibitionGood afternoon[edit]

Good afternoon,

My name is Lotte Baltussen, and I work at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. We are the archive of Dutch public broadcasters and hold many other types of audiovisual heritage as well. We have recently opened our new exhibition "3FM Presents: Your Serious Radio", which looks back at the last 50 years of pop music on the radio.

One of the interactives of our exhibition is a videomapping installation that depicts a teen room. When visitors enter the exhibition, they provide information that builds up their profile: their year of birth, gender and the favourite radio show, song, musical genre from their teens. This information is used to recreate their teen room; a sparse white space with 25 different elements such as a white bed, desk, and couch that are projected upon when a visitor activates his or her profile. We've divided the teen room into 10 time periods: 1965-1969, 1970-1974 and so forth.

In creating the videomapping, we have used countless free to use images, textures and patterns, among which is your tie dye image. We'd like to thank you very much for making your content available and thus making it possible us to use it. You can find a complete overview of the content used here, a blog post about the whole process here and pictures of the videomapping here, so you can see your content in action.

Thanks again!

All best,

Your VFC installation method is deprecated[edit]

Hello Sidpatil, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well. A detailed explanation can be found here. Important: To prevent problems please remove the old VFC installation code from your common.js and instead enable the VFC gadget in your preferences. Thanks! --VFC devs (q) 16:24, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
