Hi[edit]

You should delete it, it is unpossible to find out the author as it appears to be over 300 years old. - FrancisTyers 16:05, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Wouldn't that make it PD-old? 68.39.174.238 07:17, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
Well it would, if there were any evidence for the age other than "it sure looks old", which there was not in this case.--Pharos 21:39, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Template:PD-USNWR[edit]

Hi there. I see you created Template:PD-USNWR. Would you be able to advise on creating a similar template to use on the staff photographers of the New York World-Telegram and the Sun, whose photos are in the Library of Congress archives? An example is Image:Martin Luther King Jr NYWTS 4.jpg, which is currently using PD-author. I'd be interested in searching through the LoC archives and finding other ones covered by this. It is only a small amount: "A small portion of the photographs were taken by NYWT&S staff photographers, and are in the public domain per the instrument of gift.", but it could be worthwhile creating a template to cover them all. Carcharoth (Commons) 14:17, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

For example, 41 pics by Walter Albertin. I'm checking to see how many we have already. Carcharoth (Commons) 14:23, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Image:Federico Fellini NYWTS 2.jpg, Image:Federico Fellini NYWTS.jpg, Image:Carlos Montoya NYWTS.jpg. The first three we already have. I also found 53 by Fred Palumbo. Including Image:Robert Frost NYWTS.jpg. It would be nice to have something like the USNWR template to cover all these, and I'd be happy to work my way through these lists and find articles to use them in. Carcharoth (Commons) 14:33, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I did a search for "New York World Telegram and the Sun Newspaper Photograph Collection no known restrictions" and there were 578 hits. Many don't have more than a thumbnail (some don't even have that), and some are, well, just documenting day-to-day life and are not terribly encyclopedic, but some have potential. Forgive me for dumping a load of link here to the staff photographer links I've found so far (from the first few pages of the search), as the original search doesn't seem amenable to saving as a link. [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12]. Carcharoth (Commons) 14:56, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply. Will try and do some more later today or tomorrow. Carcharoth (Commons) 10:36, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Commons:Village pump#Commons:Wikis Take Manhattan and project scope[edit]

Hi Pharos, I just noted the uploads by WTMuploader from yesterday. I have some trouble in understanding how the entire volume of this is within the project's scope and would welcome your comments to the discussion which was opened by me at the village pump. Thanks and best wishes, AFBorchert (talk) 07:14, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Spam[edit]

The way User:WTMuploader/gallery has been categorised, is pure unadaulterated spam. Although individual images are useful, there is no need to plaster WTM's contribution in every category that these images have been added. (sarcasm begins) Should we all sigh, be grateful and worship WTM for all the wonderful images that WTM has produced? (sarcasm ends). The fact is the vast majority of images in the WTMuploader/gallery have nothing to do with the categories they have benn added to. For example of the what looks like 500 or so image in the gallery only two images are of Franklin Wharton (and those two are near dupes), so thats less than 1/2 of one precent of the images belong tp the Franklin Wharton category, making the user category grossly mis-categorised. From my calculations, this applies to all the categories that this user gallery has been added to. (frustration begins) I would not have written this, if the user gallery had not used templates for categorisation, I was going to re-categorise this gallery for you, but was unable to do so because of the use of templates. Please fix this yourself, the only categories this gallery needs is WTM user pages and user galleries. No other contributer, or group of contributers attempts to demand the level of recognition that WTM seems to desire, how would Commons pages and categories look, if every uploader of original images was to behave as your group has done and was to add every image that they have created, and not just the pertinent ones, into every category that they have contributed to? (frustration ends). My apologies if your intentions were other than I surmised, but thats why I hate categorisation templates so much as they are a bit of a blunt instrument and behave in a way that is not always predicatable and desired. KTo288 (talk) 09:34, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

The intention was not to spam all of these categories at all. The gallery page was automatically generated by Commonist, and yes, it requires cleanup, because the categories are only supposed to go on the individual image pages, not on the gallery itself. I'll have to remove these shortly by adding a new parameter to the template and activating it on the gallery page, as was done with Commons:Wikipedia Takes Manhattan/Gallery from last April. Please bear with me if this takes a little while to get through them all. Thanks.
Fair enough. On a related note is there any reason why Category:Categories improved by Wikipedia Takes Manhattan shouldn't be a hidden category?

Wiki takes Manhattan project[edit]

In contrast what you might be thinking, I sympatize with your project. I encountered however a number of maintenance problems as you can see in here.

I noticed that for the new version, you have a separate file for naming and categorising, which is already a big step forward. You should keep in mind that on commons, hundreds of images are deleted daily because there is no clear user, description and/or permission field in the image file itself. We move/rename hundreds of categories per week, and I am pretty much sure that in the category names you selected, several are not compliant with commons naming rules, so will need to be moved one day or another. Moreover, we try to educate our uploaders to use a descriptive, meaningfull file name.

So I feel that we better react as to have improvements overtime, as already present in the last batch. --Foroa (talk) 18:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Improve WTM[edit]

Hi Pharos, dont understand me wrong, i really like the idea of a scavenger hunt to get more images for articles. The only thing i dont like is the current implementation. I understand you have images scattered around and you want them on wiki as fast as possible. This is possible without all to much extra work. In the end we want each image to have to following {{information}} template

  • Description : What did we photograph? We did it for <insert your favorite hunt>
  • Source : Own work of team <the team>
  • Data : The date of the hunt
  • Author : <The team> of <insert your favorite hunt>
  • Permission : All the teams in <insert your favorite hunt> agreed to release their images under the <insert licence template>

And besides the information template you need one or more categories.

This can all be accomplished in one template you substitute at upload (or later if you want time to fix things). The way you're doing it now (lot's of templates) break several processes here at Commons (like categorization). I created a test template at User:Multichill/Scavenger hunt. It produces a page with all the information + categories andit can be substituted. It still needs some tuniing, but maybe we can use it to clean up the old scavenger hunts and use it as a basis for future hunts. Categories can be altered at User:Multichill/Scavenger hunt/category and descriptions at User:Multichill/Scavenger hunt/description. Some examples:

Hello Pharos!

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. BotMultichillT (talk) 17:45, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Can we also have the true author? The uploader also claimed authorship on (and attribution for...) the Walter Lewin videos which is corrected already.

In the last days, users have nominated for deletion some of the context photos of Wikis takes Manhattan 2008. I don't know if you still have an opinion about it after three years, like then, but I thought you might want to be notified anyway, in case you wanted to say something, or not. Current deletion requests are listed on the pages for June 30 and July 1st, 2011. -- Asclepias (talk) 23:17, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Creating new copyright code template[edit]

Hi Pharos, I tried what you said, and created a new /en copyright code. I based it off of the Brooklyn Museum, and the Flickr ones. At each step along the way, I tried to reproduce what I found in the Flickr one, but I don't think it is working right. Here are the ones I created:

This what the code in the /en template looks like, if were displayed properly:

This image was taken from the Getty Research Institute's Open Content Program, which states the following regarding their assessment that no known copyright restrictions exist:
The Getty Research Open content images are digital surrogates of works of art that are in the Getty's collections and in the public domain, for which we hold all rights, or for which we are not aware of any rights restrictions.[13]
Note: While the Getty Research Institute cannot make an absolute statement on copyright status for legal reasons, "Open content images can be used for any purpose without first seeking permission from the Getty."[14]
More information can be found at http://www.getty.edu/about/opencontent.html

The code in the edit tab looks the same in each, as in the Flickr ones, but clearly isn't activated. Something is missing... HALP!--Theredproject (talk) 22:09, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I've noticed that you have made an input regarding PD-US-no notice. I would be grateful if you could advise on undeletion of the subject file. In my opinion it is fullfiling requirements to be published under the above license. Thank you in advance Vert (talk) 12:43, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
