Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you. Thank you. INeverCry 04:15, 17 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

House identification[edit]

Thank you for the research on the house I mistakenly identified in Spring Valley, Minnesota. Sometimes I photograph many places in one day and my notes may get mixed up. By the way, I looked at your gallery and your photos are as good as your articles. Great work. Jonathunder (talk) 02:11, 11 December 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quality image nominations[edit]

I hope you don't mind that I nominated several of your state park photos as quality images. I think they certainly are good examples. Jonathunder (talk) 00:57, 19 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why did you remove Category:Apartment buildings on the National Register of Historic Places in Minnesota, while leaving Category:Apartment buildings in Minneapolis, Minnesota? If it is an apartment building, which the article states, then there's no reason it shouldn't be in the category. kennethaw88talk 02:50, 19 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rather, that kind of category is intended to be applied to properties that are listed on the National Register for being apartment buildings during their period of significance. The Bremer School building was listed for its historical significance as a school and was only adapted into an apartment building in recent years. Your addition of that category has a certain holistic logic, but it is not the convention on Wikipedia or Commons. -McGhiever (talk) 21:23, 19 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 in the United States during the month of October! The United States contest saw over 1,400 people (the most of any nation this year) contribute over 8,000 great photos of cultural and historic sites from all over the United States and its territories. Hundreds of these photos are already being used to illustrate pages on various Wikimedia projects.

We're excited to announce that our national judging process has concluded, and that we have selected the winners of Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 in the United States! These photos are recognized for their photographic quality, artistic merit, and their encyclopedic value as illustrations of unique historical sites. We were amazed by all of the uploads, and regret only being able to formally recognize the top 10. That being said – congratulations to our national winners and their amazing shots! Our 10 winners will be sent to the international Wiki Loves Monuments jury, who will then select the winners of the international contest. If you're interested in seeing the winners of the other national contests, you may do so at Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 winners.

If you would like to view all the photos submitted for the U.S. this year, you may do so here.

Finally, we have also created a feedback form for all U.S. participants to fill out. The survey is optional and anonymous, and only takes a minute or two – we hope to use the feedback to organize better events in the future!

A quick thank you to our national jury, as well as Commons editors who have helped categorize and place photos for the event. And finally, thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments and helping to preserve our history through photography - we hope to see you again for future Commons photography events!

Hi there! Kevin from Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States here. I know it's been a tough year for everyone, and I hope this message finds you well.

You are receiving this message as a participant in last year's Wiki Loves Monuments 2019 in the United States. First, a recap: We concluded with over 5,200 great photos of U.S. historical sites made possible by contributors like you. If you haven't yet seen, last year's U.S. winners are viewable here, and the international winners here (including multiple from the United States!).

Second, as you may have seen from the banner notices on Wikipedia, this year's Wiki Loves Monuments 2020 in the United States has been running through October instead of September in consideration of the pandemic and the hectic start of the fall season. Despite the challenges of the year, we're thrilled that the United States has surpassed 5,000 photo contributions so far.

October 31st is the last day to upload photos for the U.S. competition this year. If you've already contributed, thank you so much - and it's great to have you again this year! If you haven't yet contributed but are interested in participating again, you're invited to join us during these last couple days. Check out the United States event page for more information. Remember that you are welcome to upload and submit photos of historic sites that you've taken any time in the past, not just this month.

As always, thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments! If you'd like to respond to this message directly, please do so on on my talk page. ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 07:20, 30 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you![edit]

Hey McGhiever, thanks for the great new photo of Arvonne Fraser Library! If you're ever in the area again and happen to be passing by, we could use a good photo of the WaHu Student Apartments too. Thank you! Kindly Bobamnertiopsis (talk) 23:29, 9 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
