Coincidence?[edit]

Hans, als dát geen toeval is... Prachtig beeld van een mij inderdaad bekende plek! Het doet me plezier van die zo in wintertooi te zien. Jammer genoeg moest ik vrijdag werken, anders was ik er ook op uit getrokken. Dat is een mooie QI-kandidaat (al is er iets met de scherpte van sommige grassen rechts beneden, een fenomeen dat ik niet direct kan verklaren). Let ook op het vlekje rechtsboven in de blauwe lucht, dat makkelijk te verwijderen is - je kan de kritiek beter vóór zijn. Met vriendelijke groeten, Marc (MJJR (talk) 22:31, 10 January 2009 (UTC))

Toeval niet echt natuurlijk. Ik had je foto wel niet uitgeprint, dus de compo was op het geheugen. Ik passeer de Koninklijk Baan daar wel tweemaal daags, dus had ik wel een idee van waar het was. Echter, met de huidige sfeer op FPC (de restaurateurskliek die zich zo onterecht verongelijkt voelt) voel ik me niet geroepen QI's of FP's te nomineren. Ik wacht wel tot ik deze zomer terug ben van Madagascar, daar moeten wel pareltjes te schieten zijn :-). Met vriendelijke groet, Hans. Lycaon (talk) 00:49, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Madagascar is ondertussen Costa Rica geworden. Antananarivo lijkt me een beetje te link tegenwoordig, vooral met een dochter van zeven... Lycaon (talk) 09:42, 26 March 2009 (UTC)


VI galleries: Spermatophyta[edit]

Hi, I've added a conifer subgallery in the Spermatophyta gallery, but I think you had suggestions for Magnoliophytes. Feel free to create the galleries you deem justified, transclude them and add them in MediaWiki:VIhelper.js. You can also, if you will, have a look at Commons:Valued images by topic/Life forms and check the tree for mistakes (I have not added the VIs yet). --Eusebius (talk) 20:47, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Yep, will check. Lycaon (talk) 20:48, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Small question: is there a particular reason why subdivisions of animals are alphabetically ordered? Lycaon (talk) 20:53, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
I'd say "alphabetic order" :-) Actually I don't think I have reordered them. If there is a better order, help yourself. --Eusebius (talk) 21:02, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

I just have one question[edit]

Hi, I had uploaded, File:Punjab map pa.svg, which was a modification of File:Punjab map.svg, so I was not sure if I supposed to use the RetouchedPicture template for picture whose writing was translated or some other template. Also it also keep saying "Template loop detected" but can't find what it is. So could you please check if I entered the correct information when uploading? Thank You. --Gman124 (talk) 04:38, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. The {{RetouchedPicture}} template was fine. the problem apparently was with the Licensing template. Removing the self clause solved the problem. Regards. Lycaon (talk) 07:23, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks you. --Gman124 (talk) 14:00, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Menara gardens[edit]

Hi, I have changed the scope, the pavillion is the landmark of the garden. -- Bgag (talk) 12:37, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Dear Lycaon. I am sincerely impressed by your photos. Great. I wanted to use two of your photos on the webpage for my company (legal services). Do you mind it? How would i do it in comliance with licensing rights? Can i attribute it to you, by placing your name in the corner of the images?

Thank you.

You are welcome to use the pictures with attribution. You can contact me by mail here. A link on this page (or by mail) to your website would be appreciated. Regards. Lycaon (talk) 06:20, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Follow up question. Please answer[edit]

Thank you for response. And thank you for your courtesy. I was trying to send you an e-mail, but was unable to do so. This entire webpage is complicating in navigation for non-professional:-)

I think the photo Pont de Brooklyn was taken by Martin St-Amant, correct? Then, would you mind if i attribute it to you by writing: " Photo by Martin St-Amant, edited by Lycaon" ?

It is my pleasure to send you the link. However, i want to send it to your e-mail if possible. How can i do so? My e-mail is sell2010@gmail.com

Thank you.

Hi again. You don't need to credit this picture to me. It is Martin's photograph and I just did a slight modification. Thanks anyway.
BTW, you should sign your message with ~~~~ (four tildes), then your username and the date will automatically appear. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 18:49, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Permission to use Moringa Image[edit]

We are a small company looking into developing a Moringa brand. In researching for images, we came across yours and we would like to use it with your permission.

Would it be possible to make an arrangement for us to have exclusive rights to use it for our marketing pieces? If it can’t be exclusive, we would be interested in just having permission to use your photo.

Is this the highest resolution available? If you have this photo available with a higher resolution, please let us know. Also, we would be interested if you have any additional images with Moringa.

We would plan on using your image for web, brochures, presentations, and educational/promotional materials. We’re not sure how long we would be using the image for, perhaps a couple years.

Please give us a price you have in mind for us to use your photo. We would also give you a photo credit if/when we use your image(s).

You can reach me at earce@alchemicalcourtyard.com.

Thank you for your time.

Large unknown beetle[edit]

Hi Hans, I'm having trouble with the id of this fellow. I first thought it was a Stag Beetle (Lucanus cervus) but the body shape doesn't match and the antennae are different from those of the Lucanidae family, which are supposed to be elbowed and clubed. Quite large, about 4 cm long, found in the dunes near the sea. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:58, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Maybe a Scaritas sp., from the Carabidae family? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 09:34, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Most likely a Scarites species. Maybe this page may be of any help. Thare are a few species and they all tend to live in dunes. They dig in the ground during daytime and they hunt at night. I found a similar one in Sardinia last year but haven't come up with a definitive species name so far. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 20:38, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

VI galleries[edit]

Hi. If you create entries in VIHelper, please do create the corresponding galleries, or tell me what you've modified! I've taken your latest edits into accounts. Also, I've moved all the Spermatophyta in Magnoliophyta, but there could be some exceptions, if you could be kind enough to have a quick look some time... Anyway, thanks. --Eusebius (talk) 15:13, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Sure I will. Unfortunately I'm not having too much time at the moment. I'm just back from an internet incommunicado holiday in Mallorca (two weeks) and am now on a one week meeting on a small island (Askö) in Sweden. As soon as I find some time I promise I will help you out. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 20:13, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry, that's not a request, I only wanted to remind you that the JS and the gallery scheme were linked... and that I'm not sure what EuseBot would actually do if a categorization template pointed to a non-existing gallery :-) --Eusebius (talk) 20:32, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Hey Hans, I found this bee on a flower, app 2-3mm in size. Could you provide any id? Sorry to bother you again. --Muhammad (talk) 19:50, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry Muhammad, I'm currently on a meeting on a small uninhabited (but for the marine biological station) island in Sweden and don't have access to my literature. It 'll have to wait until I'm back next week. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 20:15, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Inappropriate use of rollback tool[edit]

This [1] is an inappropriate use of the rollback tool, which is intended pretty much solely to revert vandalism very quickly when it is obvious vandalism and no edit summary or explanation is needed, or sometimes it is okay also to use it to revert one's own edits if they made a mistake and want to revert their own edit quickly. I am giving this notice to the other admin as well that also used the rollback tool inappropriately. Cirt (talk) 14:36, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

I do not monitor all uses of the rollback tool. I happen to have the page Commons:Featured picture candidates watchlisted and noticed the inappropriate use of rollback. Cirt (talk) 03:34, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

My Moves[edit]

I'm guessing that the move button works now. The list at User talk:Lycaon/Move requests is still outstanding. Noodle snacks (talk) 11:01, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Sorry to butt in, but what is the 'move' button? I thought the only way files could be shifted was by using MediaMoveBot? Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 21:18, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
    • The 'move' button was implemented for a short period a couple of months ago (admin only). Something went wrong however and that functionality has been disabled since. I am eagerly waiting a restart. Lycaon (talk) 22:17, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hans, I appreciate the concern.

Well, we´ll see what happens. Hard to say what will occur, but I am taking all the precautions that are reasonable.

I am about 400 kms from Mexico City, but the stuff is spreading fast.

I do not overlook the reports, but life has to go on. Tomorrow I travel by plane, but have my masks and hand sanitizer with me!!!

Anyway, I hope it stops soon. It reminds me of Stephen King´s novel The Stand.

Teach me something![edit]

Hi Lycaon, I noticed some changes you made at Arthropods. Just wondering if you could help me understand why you moved the firebugs to "other Neoptera"? There is probably something abstruse about the naming structures of these things, but I checked the scientific classification of Pyrrhocoris apterus and it doesn't mention Neoptera at all. What am I missing here? Thanks! :-) Maedin\talk 19:57, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Ouch ;-). Systematics is not for the faint hearted. en:Neoptera has an order called en:Hemiptera where the true bugs belong. They don't have a separate subsection (yet) so they go with the other Neoptera. Maybe we should have a kind of holding pen for promoted animals, where specialists can sort them afterwards. I'd be willing to do the sorting.
In the case of P. apterus e.g. you'd have to know that they are Hemiptera to start with and then that Hemiptera is an order of the Infraclass Neoptera. Systematics are complex and large parts of it are in a constant flux, governed by new discoveries and directed by splitters and lumpers. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 20:12, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Kind of, ;-). It's a further distinction which isn't included in the short and sweet taxonomy boxes . . . fair enough!
Considering how long some things hang around on here without getting attended to, I think that having a holding pen would probably be more trouble than it's worth. Not all of the bugs I've put in Arthropods have been done incorrectly anyway (I hope!), and where there is uncertainty and I do make a mistake, it's probably easier for a specialist like yourself to have a little tidy from time to time.
By the way, I hope you didn't mind that I undid your edit at Commons:Featured pictures/Animals/Birds‎, on account of the image stating that the chilensis isn't a positive identification. If you know better, you can undo me, too. Out of interest, should this have been picked up in order for it to be FP, or is having Phoenicopterus enough? Thanks for your help and the interesting answer about the bugs, :-) Maedin\talk 06:39, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

response[edit]

hi, i appreciate you trying to cool things down, 2 points however:

1. i'm not the one who made it personal, i don't like being accused of cheating

2. i did not "puppet" anyone. masterasbian is a friend & college who does occasional work on wikim, nathan is another friend who i convinced to join wmc in order to contribute pics, for use on articles i'm editing on wikip. nathan wanted to try noming some of his work for FP (i did warn him of what to expect). i asked asbian to have a look @ the pics nathan chose to nom for FP, & vote his conscience. i in no way manipulated the vote. pls don't try & convince me that you never have interactions with colleges on wmc, where you discuss pic noms; this is not a sequestered jury. given the large number of "ditto" votes that my accuser seems to collect, i'd say that sockpupetting is a question better put in the other direct. if he doesn't retract, i might consider pursuing it, too.

sorry, but i don't like being called a cheater, & i don't like rudeness or excessive arrogance.

Lx 121 (talk) 05:47, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Regarding pursuing. Here is a list of another 28 sockpuppets of mine. Best regards --Richard Bartz (talk) 21:48, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Because there are only few self nominators. When opposing there is no discussion about oppose votes because that discussions comes mostly from the nominator/creator (like it is here often). So there is a nice and serious working atmosphere with freedom of opinion, that's why everybody likes to be part of. --Richard Bartz (talk) 22:26, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

File:Rooster crowing close-up.jpg[edit]

Hey Lycaon, this picture I took show's the inside of the rooster's mouth. I was informed that the teethlike structures projecting from the palate aid in mechanical digestion. Is this accurate? BTW, thanks for the welcome :) --Muhammad (talk) 21:35, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Hans? --Muhammad (talk) 16:17, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, lost track of this. Those projections are called papillae. They help birds hold and move food around. They are generally pointed backwards and are keratinized tubercles. Mechanical digestion mostly occurs in the stomach with the help of stones (grit) that the chicken swallows with its food. Lycaon (talk) 16:38, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Merci[edit]

Dank je voor je welwillendheid, het verwijderen van een foto op mijn verzoek :). Er zijn trouwens nog meer foto's, waarbij ik mij, in mijn enthousiasme (in het begin) heb vergis, door deze up te loaden. Daar heb ik spijt van, blijkt nu. Maar wie durft te zeggen dat hij zich nooit eens vergist? Ik laat deze, met pijn in mijn hart overigens, maar staan. groetjes --Aelske (talk) 07:48, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Lycaon, waarom verwijder je de foto zonder een gewone DR, terwijl vrij duidelijk andere gebruikers het niet eens zijn met de verwijdering? Groet, Ciell (talk) 10:19, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Hoi Lycaon, ik ben haast bang dat je over mijn vraag heengelezen hebt? Groetjes, Ciell (talk) 06:49, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Misschien omdat als Aelske de licentie formeel toch wel kan intrekken als ze het echt wil ([3]), en een afbeelding zonder vrije licentie valt niet meer onder de COM:SCOPE, en zal dus verwijderd moeten worden. --Wimmel (talk) 18:22, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

@Ciell. Sorry, inderdaad het oorpronkelijk bericht over het hoofd gezien. Er waren in deze verschillende opties. Eén ervan was een DR, waar zoals het er nu naar uitzag, flink op elkaars tenen zou worden getrapt. Ik heb een andere weg gekozen, die van de administrator's discretion. Het bestand werd niet gebruikt en er bestaat een valabel, zij het kleiner, alternatief. Het resultaat → geen ruzie en een bijdraagster die het project niet verlaat. Ik wil dit geval echter niet als precedent gebruiken maar als een eenmalige goodwill actie. Met vriendelijke groet. Lycaon (talk) 06:32, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Het bestand werd niet gebruikt, omdat Aelske het op de projecten al vervangen heeft ;-). Maar goed, eenmalige goodwil kan ik me wel in vinden, maar voor de andere afbeeldingen, die zij eigenlijk ook verwijderd wil hebben, hoop ik dat het inderdaad niet als precedent gelden gaat.

Beetle ID[edit]

Hi Hans,

Could you please help identifying this beetle (also here)? First I thought it was a Cantharid (Rhagonycha sp.), but the shape of the pronotum doesn't match. Could it be a Oedemera (Ocomera) femorata ? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 14:09, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Will check. Lycaon (talk) 06:47, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Probably Nacerdes melanura (Linnaeus, 1758), indeed Oedomeridae. Lycaon (talk) 18:44, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Hans! There were plenty of them last week near my house, in Lisbon. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 21:27, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Advice on procuring entry level DSLR + lens for macro photography (primarily flora)[edit]

Hi Hans,

I think the time has finally come for a much needed upgrade of my equipment, which so far has been just a Canon IXUS 800 IS. My budget is not that big though, about 700 €, so I do not have much degree of freedom for getting good stuff. My basic idea is to acquire an entry level DSLR, perhaps with entry level lens kit such that I can also do "normal" photography of buildings, landscapes and so forth, and then buy a reasonable f2.8 macro lens, such that I can do some better macro shots of plants, and the occasional critter. I could be a 50 mm, 60 mm, or 100 mm (the latter is probably too expensive)

One of the paths of investment I am pursuing is the Sony Alpha series, preferably the Apha 350 (530 € including 18-70mm Lens Kit), which has this cool live-view system and tiltable LDC, alternatively "just" the no-nonsense alpha 200 (350 € w. 18-70mm Lens Kit). It seesm for me that with the Sony alpha series you get a lok of technical performance considering the price tag. It will probably be the latter as it seems unrealistic to acquire a real macro lens for 170 €, 250 € is hard too ;-(.

Anyway, I am much in doubt what kind of entry level macro lens would be suitable for such a camera. I know you are using the Sony alpha series.

I could also go the second-hand path, and step back a technology generation or two, I do not mind that, if that is what it takes to meet the budget.

Do you have any advice for me?

--Slaunger (talk) 18:33, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Took a decision and ordered an alpha 300 w. std lens kit today for 470€. Realizing I cannot get decent macro within my budget I've decided to postpone the investment in a dedicated macro lens until I have acquinted myself with the new camera, which I should get in a few days. Advise concerning lenses would still be appreciated, but I am in no hurry. --Slaunger (talk) 19:47, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Oops! You are a fast decider. I was still pondering my 'advice' ;-). Did you know the α330 model is out soon? Anyway, I think any of the three larger brands (Nikon, Sony or Canon) would be a good buy. The only small caveat with Sony (too late now I realise) is the smaller choice of glass (e.g. Sigma doesn't make its 150 mm Macro for this fitting). I originally started with Sony because I had some good old Minolta lenses, and I haven't regretted it (yet). I currently shoot with α700 and also still have my old α100. For macro I used until a few months ago a Minolta AF 50mm f/2.8 Macro. Since I bought the Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG Macro, the Minolta lens is only used for studio photography. What is also important is a good tripod. I only acquired one a few months ago and I don't understand how I ever lived without now ;-) (especially with 105 mm). Before travelling to Costa Rica this summer, I still want to get the Sigma APO 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM. To be continued... Lycaon (talk) 20:25, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Not thaat fast, I have had the alpha on my wishlist for a loong time, I have looked at it in stores, I have read about it. I realize I may be restricting my future options regarding lenses, but then again I do not think I am as ambituous as the top-notch FP photographers here. I just want to do better macros in the foreseable future. I just suddenly had the money, and I could not wait one more day. A very sudden urge to consume just had to be released Smile I got some positive feedback on the alpha, from a Danish nature site as well and that made me hit the "Order" button. --Slaunger (talk) 20:37, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Well good luck. I'm looking forward to the results. Lycaon (talk) 20:41, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
I got it, and here is a sample ;-) So much to learn... --Slaunger (talk) 22:20, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
You're a fast learner ;-). Now the trick is how to avoid the CA, that could be an issue with the kit lens at wide angles with strong light... Lycaon (talk) 22:36, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, the kit lens probably has not the best CA properties. A while ago I read a procedure for how to correct that in postprocessing. I think I should start going to raw mode such that I have better possibilities for doing postprocessing and correcting such issues (until I get better glas). --Slaunger (talk) 10:04, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

I have a question about the licencing[edit]

I uploaded five files that were a derivative of this file (this had the {{GFDL}} permission template), the derivatives I uploaded were:

  1. File:Gurmukhi kakka.png
  2. File:Gurmukhi khukha.png
  3. File:Gurmukhi gugga.png
  4. Gurmukhi ghugga.png
  5. Gurmukhi ungga.png

currently the files I uploaded have the {{self|GFDL}} permission template. But I was wondering if this should have the {{pd-ineligible}} template instead. Since the files I uploaded were of the Gurmukhi script alphabets, so would they need {{pd-ineligible}} template instead of {{self|GFDL}}. Gman124 (talk) 03:22, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Please read the Quility-Image rules[edit]

I shall quote the relevant parts: " If you have objection, just change its status to Discuss and it will be moved to the Consensual review section." "To ask for consensual review, just change the /Promotion, /Decline to /Discuss and add your comments immediately following the review. An automatic bot will move it to the consensual review section within one day." "Please only send things to consensual review that have been reviewed as promoted/declined."

You have opposed to the nomination of my picture Tel-Aviv-100.JPG . I've had an objection, and then, according to the rules, I have change the /Decline to /Discuss

However, you have decided to break the rules, and to change it back to /Decline, before it was moved to Consensual review. (http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:Quality_images_candidates/candidate_list&diff=prev&oldid=21834839)

I see that very seriously, and consider it as breaking the rules. Rastaman3000 (talk) 15:32, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

I am not sure how much time Lycaon has at the moment and whether he has seen your concern. I can not see that this has been dealt with elsewhere, so I will add my 2 cents worth :-). Looking at the edit log comments it appears Lycaon thought he had accidentally entered /Discuss instead on /Decline when he reviewed it, and so "corrected" it back to /Decline. I expect that if you had added a comment as to why you disputed his review then he would have realised that he had not just mistyped the entry. I am happy to extract your nomination from the archive and put it back into Consensual Review if you like, but I think that you will find that you will have to de-noise the sky and sharpen the image to meet QI requirements :-). I would have suggested that you need a smaller aperature (higher "f" number), but maybe the camera is not capable of that. --Tony Wills (talk) 11:43, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
