Changing categories[edit]

I've moved some images from categories, such as Tallinn to Tallinn old town, as the Tallinn category has become very large and it has an insubordinate amounts of pictures of the Tallinn Old Town — not that I mind those images, but I am more for organising them better, whilst the best option is to view the Tallinn gallery or any of the potential sub-galleries. Therefore, if anyone has anything to add about it, then you are very welcome to do so. -Mardus 16:17, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Slightly wrong edit descriptions[edit]

Where the following applies:

I believe I did make the right edits in categorization, but I learned that many of my edit descriptions were wrong by one level:

  • cat change: specificity: Skyscrapers > Skyscrapers in the United Kingdom (child of Skyscrapers):
    In parentheses should be: child of Skyscrapers by country, grandchild of Skyscrapers
    Subsequently, I moved images from Category:Skyscrapers in the United Kingdom to Tall buildings in London and remembered to add correct edit descriptions, so this point is somewhat moot and therefore I didn't refer to here in respective images' Talk pages.
  • cat change: specificity: Skyscrapers > Skyscrapers in Singapore (child of Skyscrapers)
    In parentheses should be: child of Skyscrapers by country, grandchild of Skyscrapers

Image:Personal_computer.bristol.jpg[edit]

You said: "Hello. The image more appears to depict a typical table set up with technology, rather than your "three gigahertz personal computer", most of which is out of the picture at the bottom right of the image"

Depends on whether the reader regards "computer" as the entire set up or just the tower, and it depends on the subject of the article the pic is in (none, in this case). So I'm not clear what point you're making. Best Wishes, - Arpingstone 09:39, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Turns out that this image was a duplicate of Image:Pc.computer.bristol.750pix.jpg. -Mardus (talk) 13:57, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Either you fix it qickly or it will get quickly reverted ;-) Please use the PREVIEW before saving. --ALE! ¿…? 09:50, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

I noticed the mistake right away, so I reverted it as soon as possible, with Lynx, no less, so I hope my revert won't have to be reverted. Gonna use the sandbox after that... And thanks for telling. -Mardus (talk) 10:21, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

hu:Fájlvita:HEWabr.jpg[edit]

Hi mardus! I'm reacting to your message on behalf of the uploader because he doesn't speak English. It is a known fact in the community of huwiki that the uploader is actually the designer of the said device (Ganz factory) and the pictures you found are on websites of resellers. Uploader has sent me the original picture which is way bigger in size than any of those you can possibly find online. I will reupload with original size. Hope this clarifies the situation. 194.151.37.123 16:49, 29 November 2011 (UTC) (Sorry, forgot to login Teemeah (talk) 16:50, 29 November 2011 (UTC))

thanks for the suggestions, I will let him know. --Teemeah (talk) 08:21, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

I think this is getting way confusing and knowing him he will see all these as useless bureaucracy. I think it is best these photos stay on huwiki... Teemeah (talk) 14:13, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Jordan FOP[edit]

Hi Mardus, You posted a NO Jordan FOP last year. You missed the fact that articles 17 and 20 target Books, booklets and other written material. Please check to the original new 2014 Arabic Text, not the old translated one. --Tarawneh (talk) 14:39, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, User:Tarawneh. I can't read Arabic, so I don't know the current nature of Jordanian copyright law. The main idea is, that just as "books, booklets and other written materal", works of architecture also fall under 'published works', and for FOP to apply (to be 'OK'), there should not be any requirement to ask permission from the author (one or more architects) or the owner of the building, and/or requirements of payments to the author or any collection agency for publishing a photo or other audiovisual media made of a work of architecture. -Mardus (talk) 15:39, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Mardus, you are just extrapolating other laws into the Jordanian law based on the meaning of English words used by some translator. The only acceptable laws texts in Jordanian courts are Arabic text, cause the parliament produces the laws in Arabic. The concept of asking for permission to get a photo of an intentionally-publicly available structure ( not persons ) has no meaning in Jordan or in the Jordanian law. This concept does not exist in Jordan. I my self when I joined commons 10 years ago had some rough time to get the idea of forbidding a user of using images he shot him self. I even dare anyone to get me a single case outside of our commons servers that talks about the existence of the concept in general in Jordanian laws :P . --Tarawneh (talk) 16:02, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

@Tarawneh: Because the main FOP page on Commons relies on the English language, then other users also rely on English-langauge translations of the law.
Unless Jordanian copyright law explicitly says that it's permissible to make and freely publish visual media that depicts works of art situated in public spaces (including photos of works of architecture), then it is really not permissible.
Assuming that maybe it's permissible only because it doesn't say that it's prohibited, inevitably opens a huge can of worms, because then other users might begin assuming this about other countries' copyright laws that are at best ambiguous and at worst confusing. Therefore it's better to err on the safe side. -Mardus (talk) 16:27, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Mardus and Tarawneh, I would suggest to discuss this at CT:FOP. Thanks for the important point that the copyright law was amended in 2014. This amendment is already recorded at WIPO but has unfortunately not yet been translated to English. It would be helpful to provide a translation of the relevant passages of the amendment from Arabic to English at CT:FOP. When this discussion has been opened, I will post a notice to the three deletion requests that they should be suspended until we have resolved this. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 16:54, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

@Mardus: @Tarawneh: I'd like to jump in and add that after reading the supplied link of the amended law that the law explicitly exempts Architectural Structures from copyright (public domain. owned by the state) if they can be considered "folklore" or connected to the Jordanian heritage or tradition. --Hexafluoride (talk) 00:42, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

USGS Postscript[edit]

Hi. Where can i find that USGS Postscript-shakemaps ? -- ...

OK, found it in the drop-down below ... but e.g. looking at recent Ecuador-quake: pdfinfo intensity.ps says only 612x792 and it looks much low-res even compared to the previous versions of File:Shakemap_Ecuador_April_2016.jpg. --Itu (talk) 05:44, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

@Itu, it seems, that the USGS website went through a redesign. Anyways, I went to a recent shakemap of Equador from the USGS website, and the page has a Downloads section. The file you might be looking for, is the intensity map and a ZIP version of it, which is actually ps.zip; it's size is approximately over 800 Kb. I looked through my recent Commons maps files, and I have intensity.ps.zip for the Nepal earthquake map. I used The GIMP to open that file, and Ghostscript. Before the file is opened in GIMP, I can set height and width parameters as in the JPEG original, such as 2125 × 2480 pixels, and specify graphic and text antialiasing. Antialiasing must be be set to strong to avoid hairy text and lines in the map. -Mardus /talk 11:57, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
@Itu: GPL GhostScript binaries can be downloaded from SourceForge here. -Mardus /talk 12:02, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
It's not easy to follow your procedure and its pretty manual. Generally there should be some automatic processing with the basic tools given by a commandline. --Itu (talk) 13:18, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Installing The GIMP is easy; intalling Ghostscript is easy, too. All I need to do after that, is download that intensity.ps.zip file and set the dimensions to 2125 × 2480, and crop after that. It does take several steps, of course. Most Linux setups already have The Gimp and Ghostscript installed out of the box. -Mardus /talk 13:53, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
