Hey! I noticed the following on someone else's talk page and thought it would be good to have on my own.

breaks in the info templates[edit]

It does make the info page require more space on each image page. A lot of folks barely tolerate the Info pages as is. With that said, I am glad to see someone expressing an interest. Also thanks for catching the Close bracket error.

As you may have read, I am undertaking yet another rewrite of the Info Template code. All the Info page you edit will be converted over to the new format- so no worries there. Just thought I'd let you know that this will change in the new month or so... Not a high priority for me at the time, so it may slide. -Mak 23:59, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hi, please see User talk:Drini#Categorizing images. Thanks. -- aka 09:24, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. I was't sure what was considered the correct way to do it. I noticed a lot of places where images are in both articles and categories, and I was trying to be consistant with that. I couldn't find any clear guidelines for what should be in an article and what should be in a category. I can see advantages to both ways -- Nonenmac 12:25, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Stamp sharpness[edit]

Hi, good to see more US stamp images coming in! I have a question about resolution though - the full-size images seem awfully fuzzy. At the sizes you're using, the engraving lines should mostly have sharp edges and individual paper fibers should be visible too. Pushing the scanner past its plausible limits perhaps? Stan Shebs 04:28, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

I agree that your scans look a lot sharper than mine. I've been scanning at the max resolution, adjusting the rotation a bit if needed and then shrinking down to a reasonable size. I'll try scanning at some lower resolutions and see how it works. Thanks for the observation. Nonenmac 15:14, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
My scanner is rated at 2400 dpi, but I scan at 1200 dpi, rotate, and then scale down to 600 dpi. For typographed designs I usually do a edge-sharpening filter, but not for line-engraved, because at 600 dpi patterns of parallel lines will develop artifacts and the like. Which scanner do you have? I have an Epson 2400 Photo. Stan Shebs 23:10, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
I couldn't get any better results with our Canon scanner, though it was rated the same as your Epson, so we went out and got a new Epson 4490, which does a much better job. If you look at my later scans (starting at 1898) in User:Nonenmac/postage stamps you can see the difference. Thanks for giving me an excuse to get a new toy. Nonenmac 00:13, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Categories in Category:Odonata[edit]

Hi Nonenmac, I have seen, that you have uploaded a lot of Odonata images. :-) You also created many categories. We will try to change the long tree to a shorter one (see Category:Coleoptera and Category:Lepidoptera) to make navigation easier. You are invited to discuss this at irc://irc.freenode.net/bio.wikipedia 2006-11-27 7:00 p.m. (UTC). Best regards, --Olei 10:00, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Screwed up the Artist Template!![edit]

I have modified the Artist Template in error, and don't know how to revert it. Very sorry indeed - could you please help? I was trying to create a new template for an artist, and I thought it would do just that - not modify the template. My apologies and many thanks. Yellow Lion

OK, I worked at it and think I have managed to revert the modifications. Sorry to have bothered you... Yellow Lion

Octomino Image Error[edit]

Hello, I noticed that your file, All 369 free octominoes.svg at File:All_369_free_octominoes.svg has two errors (impostors?). In particular, two of the polyominoes are heptominoes, not octominoes.

The first is on the seventh row down from the top and sixth column in from the left. It's grey. The other is on the third row from the bottom and twelfth column in from the left. It's green and looks like a staircase.

-Justin

I just checked every piece in this diagram manually. There are a total of 7 hept/duplicates and 7 unrepresented pieces. See this thing for which are bad on File:All_369_free_octominoes.svg. Splarka (talk) 22:34, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Octomino Figure[edit]

Hi, my research group has been doing some work on polyominos and there are two heptominos in your octomino figure. The first is 6 from the right on line 7. The second is the second green structure on line 17. I removed the figure from the polyomino and octomino pages but it'd be good to fix - is there a bug in your enumeration algorithm? The integer sequence A000105 suggests that there are 369 octominos - if this number is from your algorithm, it should be fixed.

See #Octomino_Image_Error. Splarka (talk) 22:36, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
I made the changes that you indicated in the octomino diagram. You may want to check to make sure that I didn't introduce any new problems. I moved the disputed-diagram template in the image's talk page. You can move it back if there's a problem. -- Nonenmac (talk) 23:13, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
It was too much work to check manually once! Might be better for you to check by generating then with a different method and comparing results? I am not sure how you have them organized. Ishino Keiichiro's polyomino data is apparently organized from most significant to least significant bit, in an 8x4 grid for octominoes. So you get: this (and the binary representation). In a chart it would look like testwiki:File:369.svg.
This could probably be easily recreated by taking all permutations of 8 bits in a 32 bit number, organizing in the 8x4 grid, checking and eliminating diagonals/floaters, rotating/mirroring/upper-lefting all to most significant bits and removing duplicates, and then sorting by most significant bits (lazily done by converting to binary numbers and sorting). Just an idea. Splarka (talk) 00:28, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Nonenmac!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

BotMultichillT 21:46, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

I checked the categorization of the above pictures. I think I got them all. Nonenmac (talk) 21:30, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Renaming files[edit]

Hi Nonenmac; May I point out that Ambiguous is not a COM:RENAME criterion?[1] Harmonize (Criterion 6) fits better, perhaps. You've been a file mover since last June with no complaints, but I see a November move that does not comply with my reading of the criteria either.[2] Please review the rename criteria, if you would, and cite one of the listed criterion in your edit summary. The discussion at Commons_talk:File_renaming#Too_general_names may be helpful to you as well. Thank you, Walter Siegmund (talk) 07:52, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

I think the moves in question, in which genus and specific epithet are for some reason merged with no delimiter between them, to some extent fit all of the criteria except the first and last. They are meaningless if the reader can't figure out where the space goes. They are misleading if the reader thinks the space goes in the wrong place, or that there is no space, or more than one space. That's pretty much what I meant by ambiguous. (Maybe that's only "potentially misleading".) They are also errors because the correct spelling includes a space. It's inharmonious because they may occur in the wrong place in an alphabetized list of images, where most of the others are spelled correctly. Nonenmac (talk) 18:21, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Correction request[edit]

Hi Nonenmac - could you make a small correction to File:Pinus ponderosa & arizonica subspecies range map 0.png and File:Pinus ponderosa subspecies range map 0.png please? For some unknown reason, I can't open the full size originals to work on them. The correction is that the 3 small green dots in westernmost Washington state need to be changed to red (i.e., from Pinus ponderosa subsp. ponderosa to subsp. benthamiana). I've done the other three versions, which I was able to open; check any of them to see the difference. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 10:31, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Byrsonima lucida range maps[edit]

Hi, could you take a look at the range maps that you created for this plant (Category:Byrsonima lucida range maps)? The data that were used are for the US only, and the plant is far more important on Caribbean islands. I don't know what to suggest, perhaps the images and the category should be deleted, since I don't know a source of better data other than the text entry at USDA GRIN. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 22:02, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

The source was Elbert Little's Atlas of United States Trees, Volume 5. Florida, so it just showed the native range within the state of Florida. I agree that makes it quite misleading. I don't mind if the files are deleted. I could modify the maps to show the species present on the islands shown in the ARS-GRIN database if there is an interest, but that could be misleading too if the tree is only native to parts of the larger islands. - R.
