Mountain artillery[edit]

[1] 1 If you adding categories write them like that

[[category]] 
[[category]]

not that

[[category]][[category]][[category]]

2 if you add a category Category:World War I Mountain artillery not add Category:Mountain artillery - its wrong double.

3 If you add a category Category:World War I Mountain artillery to Category:QF 2.95 inch Mountain Gun- then you shuldn`t add that category to Image:Pack Howitzer2.jpg - its also double.

Nice work. Pmgpmg 19:33, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Duplicates[edit]

Hi! There are some reasons for deletion where you don't need to start a deletion request. Duplicates (or bad named pictures or copyvios, ...) can be deleted speedily. Instructions how to do that can be found at Commons:Deletion guidelines. In case of a duplicate just add {{duplicate|Image:example.jpg}} to your picture (the parameter is the name of the other picture). I have closed your deletion request and made a speedy delete of the duplicate (Positioning18pdrSommeSpring1917Quality100.jpg). -- Cecil 11:44, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

BL 8 inch Howitzer Mk 6 - 8[edit]

Thanks for correcting the captions. I added 3 photos of the Mark VIII at the Canadian War Museum that I had on my hard drive since the summer. Enjoy. Balcer 16:07, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Increasing the brightness of dark pictures is useful, but please make sure your monitor is properly calibrated first. If your monitor brightness is set too low, for example, pictures will appear too dark for you, but normal to most other people. Consequently, when you make them brighter to appear normal on your display, they will in turn appear too bright for other people.
These two links contain useful tests. [2] [3]
Also, thanks for extending the image captions using CWM web information. If you could track down the info for Image:Panzer II CWM Ottawa.jpg, I would be grateful. The museum tablet only said it was a Panzer II, nothing more specific (version, year of manufacture etc.) Balcer 17:43, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Does that mean I have my monitor set too dark, and that the pictures I've brightened, such as your photo of the 8 inch how, appear too bright on other people's screens ? I have an LCD monitor with brightness and contrast set to 50%. On the test you point to, my contrast setting appears correct but I cannot set brighness to differentiate the light and dark sides of the black box - its all just black no matter what brightness setting I use.
I'd be really grateful if you could help me to correctly calibrate my LCD monitor. You can click on "E-Mail this user" on the left.
I'll try to find the panzer info you asked for.Rcbutcher 05:43, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
I am not sure how much I can help, as I am no expert in this area. There should be a specialized discussion page somewhere on Wikipedia concerning this topic. Anyway, on my end, the modified picture you uploaded seems a little too bright. When I was playing with my settings to calibrate my monitor, I found out that not everything can be fixed with monitor controls, and that some things may have to be fixed in the computer settings as well (en:Gamma correction is the key, if I remember correctly, though it seems that can be controlled on some monitors as well). On Linux this can be done with a simple command (not sure about other systems). Your setting of 50% contrast and 50% brightness seems a bit on the low end to me, but that is just my gut feeling (and of course that might be what you find comfortable for your use of the computer, as for some things that is fine).
At any rate, feel free to experiment with image alterations. The original unaltered images are after all still there and clearly linked, so no harm is being done. Balcer 06:57, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
Here is a nice and simple gamma test. Balcer 06:59, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
Now I know what's happened. I use Linux, and I had set my Gamma to 0.4, via software, because with higher settings everything is too bright. But with Gamma set to 0.4 the square in the test you pointed to is all black with no circle visible. Now, if I increase Gamma to 1.05 using software, the circle appears with left side faint and right side clearly visible. But again, my screen is too bright (i.e. firefox window is nearly white, and the task bar is very bright) but your photos appear correctly. So... isn't it the photos that should be adjusted, not the monitor ? I think I've read somewhere that photos display darker on a screen than they do in print... the conclusion would appear to be that they should be gamma-corrected before uploading to the internet, rather than people adjusting their monitors. Or is it my contact lenses that add extra gamma correction ??? Rod Rcbutcher 09:01, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
You may be right, it is quite possible that the monitor on my end is set incorrectly in some way. Plus I guess different people perceive brightness of photos differently, the lighting in the room in which you work may be different, etc. This whole issue of getting the colors and brightness right seems to be fascinating indeed. At the end of the day, I guess if someone really needs an image from Commons, they can download it and adjust it themselves in any way they see fit.
Here is one more thing that I suggest you try. Since you are using Linux, you must have the program en:GIMP installed by default. Try usings its Tools -> Colour Tools -> Levels option, and then adjust the colour levels automatically. That should produce reasonably well adjusted brightness levels independent of the display you are using (though it does not work perfectly all the time). Balcer 16:11, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
I couldn't find any reference to a Panzer II in the CWM catalog... I came up with all kinds of other tanks but not yours. It's probably incorrectly catalogued and hence doesn't come up on a search. Rcbutcher 06:39, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

I really appreciate your help in placing some of the images I uploaded in the appropriate categories. It took me a while to figure out the idea behind the category system, so some of my earlier pictures are only linked to articles. Thanks again. Balcer 03:47, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

BL 6 inch[edit]

I uploaded some new pictures into Category:BL 6 inch Gun Mk 7. I am sure this is a BL 6 inch gun but I am not sure which Mark it is. The museum label was unfortunately in Finnish only. Maybe you can help with precise identification here. Balcer 02:08, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

These are great photos ! The gun appears to be a 6 inch Mk 7. It came on various types of carriage, giving different guns a different overall appearance. But the barrel and breech do look like 6 inch Mk 7. Is this at The Front museum Hanko - Lappohja ? Maybe I can contact them and try to trace its history - this is part of my interest, to try and discover the story if possible. These guns link us to the past. thanks. Rod Rcbutcher 03:11, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes, that's the one. Contacting them may be a good idea. Finnish weapons are usually described at the comprehensive http://www.jaegerplatoon.net/, but for some reason this gun is not mentioned there. Balcer 20:29, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Chalmette Battlefield[edit]

Hello. I reverted your edit at Image:ChalmetteBattlefieldCannonBattery4Location.jpg because that was a battlefield from the War of 1812, not the American Civil War. (I don't see any category for artillery from that war yet. Should there be?) Cheers, -- Infrogmation 14:03, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

d'uh - and I'm always criticizing movies for getting facts wrong ! Indeed the Civil War was not fought against the British in 1815 ! My interest is artillery through history, and I'm trying to move the photos of guns into useful categories so people can find them and see what was used when/where/what for, and link it with information about it if possible in the en, de, fr Wikipedia etc. - not possible if we just have it under artillery, too much there. For the major wars we have artillery categories, but I suppose we can't have such a category for every single war. I'll put it under Category:Field artillery of the XIX century.

Renaming British artillery shell diagrams[edit]

Excuse me, Inkwina proposed new name, I checked only it's was formally correct. --Luigi Chiesa (talk) 10:10, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

OK, thanks, I have forwarded my message to Inkwina. Rcbutcher (talk) 10:21, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry but I'm not an artillery specialist. I just proposed the rename because BL15inchAPMkXXIIBNTShell1943Diagram.jpg (and similar file names) looks like gibberish to anyone who is not familiar with the subject. Also, typically naming on commons tries to use correct English (therefore Diagram of ...). I think its fine to have the names as you suggested: e.g. "BL 15 inch APMk XXII BNT Shell 1943 (Diagram).jpg" even if it is not too descriptive; but please remember that 1. most users are unfamiliar with the subject and 2. somewhat more descriptive names would make the images more useful. thank for your heads up --Inkwina (talk contribs) 17:35, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Can you photograph ammunition also ?[edit]

Thanks for the words of appreciation. The problem with ammunition in museums is that it is extremely poorly labeled. There are quite often lots of shells around as exhibits and decorations, but it is usually impossible to find out what one is looking at. I can try to take photos of these in the future, hoping that someone will identify them, but I am not sure how to go about this. Uploading many photos to Commons entitled Unidentified_Shell_1.jpg seems akward. Even worse, from the photo you cannot judge the caliber unless you add a ruler somewhere (then again if the shell is behind glass, then the ruler will not help much). Overall, it does not seem to be an easy problem to solve. balcer (talk) 03:50, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Your photo of the 37-mm pom-pom[edit]

I don't currently have specific info on the gun, but can easily get it. The museum is only a couple of km from where I work; I'll pop in there over lunch during the week. I have a number of other Military Museum photos that I also want to the the details for. --NJR ZA (talk) 19:50, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

You may also be interested in Image:Boer war-37 mm Maxim-002.jpg. Same gun from a different angle. --NJR ZA (talk) 20:56, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I totally got my guns mixed up on this one. This is a German WW1 gun captured by South African forces in South West Africa in 1915. I have renamed the photos as Image:WWI-German-37 mm Maxim-001.jpg and Image:WWI-German-37 mm Maxim-002.jpg and updated the information on the image pages. The gun in the photos is Nr. 542 manufactured by the Deutsche Waffen und Munitions Fabriken in 1903. There are two of these at the museum, Nr. 542 and 543.
According to museum staff the Boer War gun is at a museum in Pretoria. I'm sure I've seen it before and will have to go find it again sometime and take a photo. --NJR ZA (talk) 15:14, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm rather disappointed with the 7 pounder photos. The flash on my camera was not good enough to get a clear shot of the 7 pounders on field carriages. I've put a gallery of guns from the museum at http://www.roux.co.za/mhm/gallery.html if you want to have a look and let me know if any will be useful on commons. The 75mm mountain gun is quite interesting as it is serial Nr. 1, but there is no wikipedia page for it yet. More info on that gun is available at http://www.sacktrick.com/igu/germancolonialuniforms/militaria/mountaingun.htm --NJR ZA (talk) 18:35, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
My interest in Wikipedia in this case is to upload information, photos, diagrams etc. that allow e.g. a school student to research what great-grandad or great-great-grandad did in these wars, whatever side he was on. E.g. if the ancestor is known to have worked a Krupp field gun, it's great if people can go to Wikipedia and find the gun, see the gun details, how it was operated, how far it could shoot, how it was moved around etc : and be able to imagine great-great-grandad in action. So images of shells, closeup gun breech details, gun being towed etc. are most useful. Stuff that contributes to building an action mind-picture : bringing history to life and hence making it interesting. Rod Rcbutcher (talk) 09:04, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Category navigation boxes[edit]

Regarding Category:Battle of the Marne (1914), how about if there was just a timeline, like the category navigation so that the vistor to commons might more easily discover content related to other time periods for the same location, or other places in for the same time period in the western theater? EG: I think you would agree that the category navigation template can be useful- eg Category:1910s ships or Category:1910s paintings. In wikipedia, it is possible to navigate in a less narrow fashion because contributors manually added large numbers of relevant links to the material. This sort of reference information should not be included in Commons, but the links are extremely valuable for finding related media on commons. Now, all we have is category structure for navigation. Category navboxes allow another way of navigating commons content. This particular template is a heavyweight example of that class and I agree it is not that useful for the battle of the marne at this time. Dynamic navboxes present to the visitors other categories of the same time period or regarding the same place. The marne area is not richly categorized this way, so I agree placement of that template probably won't reveal many interesting related categories at this time. This will change when more categories exist for regions of the western front in the 1910s.

I was wondering if you would find it acceptable that for the time being that the navbox be minimized, or if you could recommend some of the groups in the navboxes that should be masked off? -J JMesserly (talk) 16:20, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

I've been thinking about the navbox idea.. my view is that it can be useful if the presented navboxes are useful to the viewer rather than being seen as just cluttering up the page, or at worst confusing the viewer. I feel that e.g. navboxes relating to the History of France on a category page about a particular battle are just confusing & disruptive. I think if a viewer has got to a category about a specific battle, they probably want to see media about that specific battle, so navboxes in front of them should assist that objective.. I don't see how a navbox about History of France, France in the 1910s or Navigating France meets that requirement - but e.g. navboxes about the Schlieffen plan, geography of the Marne etc. could be useful on the battle category page. But I'm just one person, and Wikipedia is a democratic enterprise... I'll leave this issue to others to decide. Always good to see others trying to improve Wikipedia. regards, Rod Rcbutcher (talk) 03:22, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, I am removing it from Marne anyway because for it to be useful this would be a year by year template, and not focused on France as you say but narrower scope. This is something I need to do because it is obviously useful for the scenario of a war. You could then move around various regions of France Belgium and Germany and see what was going on year by year. Maybe I can generalize it to handle specific battles, but who knows. Anyway for the marne template would not be useful until this variation is developed, and would take a lot of manual work to spread it to all battles of WW I. At this point I am focusing on getting feedback from folks that care enough about a page to talk about it. Thanks. -J JMesserly (talk) 03:54, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

I know it can be a pain, and everyone likely does know what it means. However I think that we should try to spell things like this out instead of abbreviating if we want to maintain an encylopedic tone. I actually find the use of WW I and WW II abbreviations in articles on the English Wikipedia annoying. --BrokenSphere 17:18, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

Category navigation templates.[edit]

Do you have a generic disagreement with the use of any category navigation templates? You commented with your change that the nav template removed has "nothing to do with 1880s ships". You left the other nav template that allows navigation to other ships in other periods. How do you know a visitor trying to find an image on commons doesn't want some other category in the 1880s? -J JMesserly (talk) 22:45, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't have a "generic disagreement"... but if users go to a category about ships they don't want to see links about art, culture, sport, whatever... they want to see images about ships. Just because something totally unrelated was around in the same era does not make a connection. Also, the template occupies a ridiculous amount of space on the screen and overshadows the real content. I don't think "How do you know a visitor trying to find an image on commons doesn't want some other category in the xxxxs" is a strong argument fot its inclusion. regards. Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 22:08, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Well Rod, our category system tends to pigeonhole content. Our search system sucks because not a lot of text is associated with images. No one interlinks pages, so what that leaves is 4 million islands of content in category pigeonholes. Navboxes offer a way out of the commons trap. I can symphathize with your remarks about the decorative elements or the other things of the same time period. Those decisions are up to editors whether to include or not include. But at the very least, the navbox cell with all of the decades for ships is useful, and if that were displayed you would presumably have no trouble with its inclusion with this category. Is that correct? -J JMesserly (talk) 04:30, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I agree that we need more than just categories to help users navigate commons.. ideally we need accurate and detailed text descriptions for images so people can use Google-type searches - that seems to be the Internet standard. But as you said, because most images lack detailed text. I feel that Navboxes will help so long as they are relevant and unobtrusive - just occupying a few lines at the top, and pointing to associated subjects. e.g. just arts, military, politics or science of the period... e.g. the ship decades navbox is useful.. ultimately though, we need to get descriptions (i.e. metadata) added to images to enable Google searches. I would be interested in participating in a study group to discuss this. Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 08:45, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Armstrong guns from Bundesarchiv[edit]

Hi, the images you recently removed from Category:Armstrong guns are in fact pictures of armstrong cannons (except one).

Vanity fair cropping[edit]

Hi. Just wondering why you reverted the border removal of the vanity fair caricatures? All of the information in the borders had already been moved to the description page (so none is lost due to cropping) and the border less image is more useful for illustrating the subject in Wikipedia articles. /Lokal_Profil 10:53, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

The reason is that the "work" consists of the the whole page as printed, not just the "picture". By removing the border you are actually corrupting the historical record. To put it another way, there is much more to the Vanity Fair caricatures than just the pretty picture : the picture together with the surrounding details : Frame, text, page heading, date etc are a complete unit and need to be preserved as such, in the ORIGINAL visual form i.e. the whole layout is important, not just the so-called "words". Regarding the use to "illustrate" subjects in articles : these are not photographs, they are artistic impressions : users need to see it as it was printed in its day, not the way you want it to appear to suit the article's purpose. Rcbutcher (talk) 11:27, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Well we might disagree about which function is the more important for these images but I'll use {{extract}} instead of {{crop}} from now on. That way both versions will exist. /Lokal_Profil 22:27, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

State Library of Victoria[edit]

Since you have a knowledge on Australian copyright policy, then what do you think about using Allan Green's photos from State Library of Victoria, like this one File:HMS_Kingston.jpg? They are marked as "out of copyright ", nonetheless they say in general copyright notice, that: Unaltered images or text may be downloaded, saved and printed from the State Library website to use as reference or study material for personal use or illustration in a project, assignment, essay or thesis and not for any publication in any medium. All of the accompanying caption information must be included without alteration. (...) To use images ...for all other uses ... you must contact the Library to seek prior written permission. ... A reproduction fee may be charged depending on the nature of the proposed use. [6] When downloading high resolution photos (I've only uploadad several low-res ones), there's a notice: Although there are no copyright restrictions on this work, the State Library of Victoria does not endorse or support any derogatory uses of this work. In using this work you agree to acknowledge the work's creator and the State Library of Victoria as the source of the work. Pibwl (talk) 15:08, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I think the same about smaller images. However I don't know, if they appreciate it ;-) There is a lot of fine images in this collection (of naval and civilian ship), so I'm going to pick several most interesting ones. Captions are no problem, for they are limited to ships' names. Pibwl (talk) 15:43, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello, dear Rcbutcher thank you for your interest in the file above mentioned. Sorry but I can not help you. Fortunately you seem to be pasion in this matter and and I'm sure that some other contributors will help you. Please, let me let me know if you have any information about this gun.

Image: Twin6pdr10cwtCoastMount1943.jpg‎[edit]

You describe this as:

IWM caption : "Munitions production: Work being carried out on a 6 pounder twin coastal artillery gun. Workers in a Ministry of Supply ordnance factory aligning the sights of the gun in elevation." Comment : The guns are QF 6 pounder 10 cwt.

However the internal diameter of the barrel looks a bit large for a 6 pounder 10 cwt (57mm). I've used it on a new page for the 6 pounder 10 cwt: QF 6 pounder 10 cwt gun

I think it is an illusion caused by the photographer being up close : the muzzles appear larger than they really are; also possibly the man is small. Such a distortion would have had propaganda value at the time if published. Rod

Request help identifying artillery fuzes[edit]

Rod,

I have uploaded some pictures of sectioned artillery fuzes that I took in Finnish artillery museum in Hämeenlinna. Unfortunately the fuzes were not labeled and the museum weekend staff could not help me. I have created the Category:Unidentified fuzes for them. I pestered the museum staff by email later and found that the fuzes are mostly from light caliber (75-105 mm) shells. I got some details of one (File:Artillery fuze Hämeenlinna 13.jpg), but did not press the issue on others. Given the mix-and-match of equipment used by Finnish army these fuzes could be Russian/Soviet, British, French, German, Swedish, Finnish, American, even Austro-Hungarian or Japanese (and that's just presuming they were actually used by Finland and not acquired by the museum later).

You seem to know quite a lot of artillery fuzes based on your edits. If you can find anything of these, it would be most appriciated. MKFI (talk) 20:56, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Sorteren[edit]

Even een vraagje. Ik doe nogal wat aan het categoriseren van schepen en zie nu dat je veel werk steekt in het sorteren. Niet dat ik verschil van mening over de plaats waar je ze naartoe verwijst, maar ik heb zo het idee dat je overbodig werk doet en dat is zonde van je tijd en moeite. De bestanden worden automatisch gesorteerd op de filename. Het gaat dus pas fout als er HMS, M/S, S/S, Ferry of iets dergelijke voor staat. De vraag is dus: Is er een speciale reden waarom je nu op deze manier sorteert? Voorbeeld: File:Zuiho1944.png --Stunteltje (talk) 06:33, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Vanity fair list[edit]

Hi. I've finally got around to answering your message at User_talk:Lokal_Profil#"Test" list of Vanity Fair caricatures with image thumbnails and think I've figured out a working solution. /Lokal_Profil 12:46, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

If you are ok with it (seeing that you are the other main contributor) I'll try changing over to the "by year" subpage system I mentioned. As I mentioned on my talk page I don't think it will make editing any harder than it currently is but there might be other things that crop up, such as a possible software limit on how much info can be included through templates. /Lokal_Profil 12:50, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
I thinks it's OK to go ahead with it if you are committed to being around to fixup any mistakes other people might make. I intend to support Wikipedia longterm so I can also monitor it. regards, Rod Rcbutcher (talk) 13:49, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

File:Heugh Battery memorial plaque Geograph 1608078 0295fa65-by-Andrew-Curtis.jpg - character of the 'War Memorial Tablet' on the Promenade in Hartlepool UK[edit]

I contact you Sir with reference to your apparent involvement in one of the architectural elements within what were formerly the 'Hartlepools' ('West' and 'East', 'West' being a Victorian new town and 'East' known historically over a period of centuries as 'Hartlepool') and the 1914 East Coast Raid.

Is there anyone interested in this matter? For a start you may wish to see the most recent (January 2011) edit by myself to what so far as I can make it is indeed a contribution by the manager of this talk page to the illustrated ('jpg') site in question. I shall check this present site where I leave this message over the next fortnight from today, if not later. (I warn everyone in advance it is to myself at least an extremely complicated matter, historically, involving a number of those UK and European legal issues which have never, with respect, been addressed at all, so far as I can make out, within the international 'wiki' system, extraordinary though this clearly is, from a technical point of view, going in fact beyond my own understanding. Can this be resolved? I doubt it. In the meantime however, given the evidence available in a British public document, which can be confirmed and if necessary made more clear as to its significance, the correction of the title so that it is at least no more misleading than the original upon which it happens to be based, in relation to a site of completely unique historical character within the UK, seems to be something that is perfectly elementary, with regard to how to do it and what needs to be done.)

New entries in Vanity Fair list[edit]

Hi. Just wondering if you know if there were ever two Vanity Fair caricatures issued on the same day? I discovered a print which I couldn't find in the list (or in [7]) and which supposedly was also released on 1906-09-05 (same date as this one). /Lokal_Profil 19:59, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Found answer to that question when looking at the 1878 where this seems to have occurred twice. /Lokal_Profil 13:41, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Category:Union Buildings[edit]

Sorry about that mess, I mistakenly thought that the category was for images of the buldings of labor unions (i.e. "Union buildings"), and did not realize that "Union Buildings" was a title. Perhaps the category name should have a disambiguator to make it clearer. In any case, my apologies for screwing up, and thanks for cleaning up my mess.

Heads up on some VF prints[edit]

Just wanted to give you the heads up (so you don't spend time hunting for them) that I've got the Vanity Fair prints for the following dates on my computer and will be uploading them over the coming week(s). Great work on finishing of a few more of the years =) /Lokal_Profil 11:57, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

All done. Thanks. /Lokal_Profil 23:20, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
On a side note. Don't know if you spotted it but for the darvillsrareprints page there are normally larger image versions even for the "sold" images even if the are not linked to. E.g. on [8] the Searle print is "sold" and non clickable. But still available at [9]. Another useful tool is tinEye where one can stick the low res antiquemapsandprints image and sometimes find highres versions on other webpages e.g. [10] (link expires in 72 hrs.). You might have known about both or not have a need for either but figured I should share =) /Lokal_Profil 13:45, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you so much for adding categories to Mr. Bernini's pics. Hopefully in the future even Italian users will help. --Elitre (talk) 12:23, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Frank Berryman[edit]

Why were the pictures of Frank Berryman (File:Allen Berryman Syria 1941.jpg and File:Frank Berryman 1918.jpg) moved to Commons? I had not uploaded them to commons in the first instance because of the watermarks, per Commons:Watermarks. Hawkeye7 (talk) 03:33, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

I understand the watermark issue is a guideline or preference rather that a total prohibition, and I thought the benefit of having all the Berryman images in a category on Commons outweighed any concern over the watermarks. Some of the watermarks can be removed, but the image with signature has the watermark over the signature so there's not much that can be done there. Do you want me to request a moderator to remove it from Commons ? regards. Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 08:08, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

I came across this file (File:El Alamein 1942 - British Matilda tanks.jpg), and thought it needed moving ( I've explained here) but I don't know how to go about it. I notice your name on the edit history there, so I thought I'd ask for your advice.

Thank you (belatedly!) for replying to my query and for your advice.

File:French370mmRailwayHowitzer1917.jpg seems to be free (or it would be proposed for deletion), but it was identified as having a wrong license. Usually, it is because a public domain image is tagged with a free license, or because the stated source or other information is not sufficient to prove the selected tag is correct. Please verify that you applied the correct license tag for this file.

If you believe this file has the correct license, please explain why on the file description page.


Deutsch | English | español | français | polski | português | svenska | +/−


The reason given by the user who added this tag is: The claims on the website have no value for copyright status on the image. It might be possible that this photo is ok for {{PD-EU-no author disclosure}} or {{PD-old-70}}

de:User:Schoringer whom you named as author doesn't exist on de-WP. Do you have a possibilty to find out the right account name? --Martina talk 21:39, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

The evidence of the original uploader is in the Original upload log section, which came from the DE Wiki. This indicates that such a user did exist. I think the actual user pages are not automatically created - they only get created when some content is placed on them. Rcbutcher (talk) 07:14, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

{{category redirect}}[edit]

With categories that have been existing for more than a short time, we usually would place the template {{category redirect}} rather than {{badname}}, there are a few exceptions to that rule. This is especially useful for those using HotCat, as if they find something like 10in artillery in the lookup function then it will automatically apply the redirected category name.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:17, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

IWM template[edit]

Hi, I can see you have been reformatting some of the Imperial War Museum uploads, thanks for helping out. I am a bit concerned that you have removed the explanatory text I added based on my emails with the IWM IP copyrights manager (see example diff and User:Fæ/email/IWM). The problem with removing the explanation, is that later folks that review the copyright status will click on the catalogue link and see the IWM non-commercial use only licence being a potentially valid claim by the IWM. I am considering changing all the templates for all 12,000 of my uploads to include the template you have used (as part of a data-ingestion variation and can replace the standard information template). This will also avoid duplicating images in a parent and child category unnecessarily. I'll avoid touching anything you have done so far, happy to leave this up to you, but you may want want to consider holding back from doing a lot of these until I've had a chance to get the clearer alternative underway (hopefully this week, though I do have a lot on right now). Thanks -- (talk) 11:48, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Better source request for File:Kenley Sqn photo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Kenley Sqn photo.jpg. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the file because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact web page where you found the file, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the file itself. Please update the file description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the help desk or me at my talkpage. Thank you.

Luftstreitkräfte[edit]

Hi, I notice that in 2011 you created Category:World War I people of the German Air Force, that appears to be a duplication of the existing Category:People of the Luftstreitkräfte, and the latter is both a parent and child of the former. I'm no expert on WWI German forces, so perhaps you might merge those two cats, and any related anomalies, or at least make it clear in description headers for the likes of me what the difference is. MTIA, PeterWD (talk) 11:31, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Greetings. Thanks for pointing that out. I've moved all the images and categories to Luftstreitkräfte and redirected World War I people of the German Air Force to it. regards, Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 00:46, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Der Weltkrig im Bild[edit]

Hi Rcbutcher, They deleted all the files that where nominated for deletion. The reason was this: Deleted: Unclear copyright status. Unless we have clear, explicit written/textual, tangible evidence indicating that these files are indeed freely licensed under a Commons compatible license, we cannot host them on Commons FASTILY 07:52, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

So i guess this means our arguments had no meaning or any significance. Can i conclude that any arguments whatsoever have no use at all if there is no clear, explicit written/textual, tangible evidence? does this means that we never have to answer whit the keep option anymore because it will not do any good? Regards, Alfvanbeem (talk) 07:35, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

No, keep trying and contributing. Wikipedia/Wikimedia takes a lot of patience. The big picture works very well even if in the small picture some silly things happen. Freedom ! Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 08:46, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

General upgrade?[edit]

Hi, a while ago you made this edit which removed a licence. I'm not sure if other files that used my custom templates were similarly affected, you might want to double check what happened, just in case many more files had similar problems. Cheers -- (talk) 21:39, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Please revert your moves[edit]

Please revert your moves on aircraft categories, you haven't discussed these changes to the structure and have no consensus for it. Bidgee (talk) 05:08, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Mystery ship[edit]

I've just noticed your edits on File:HMS Canterbury FL7489.jpg which I seem to have miscategorised some time ago! After a bit of digging, I think this is the former SS Canterbury; we have an article at w:HMS Arpha. No idea why they got the old name, but the pictures seem to match. Andrew Gray (talk) 22:20, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Strike that - it's probably this Canterbury, which replaced the earlier ship. Thoughts? Andrew Gray (talk) 22:23, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Keith Payne[edit]

(WP is SO slow at the moment that it's hard to keep track of which edits have actually been saved. My apologies if there's a "synchronisation" problem.)
Please note that the Australian War Memorial themselves have stated that they have released photos into the public domain. This matter has been debated many times in many places by many minds who know MUCH more about copyright issues than I do, and than I ever want to.
If there is a problem with whatever the currently claimed license is, I have little doubt that the photograph would qualify as fair use of a historical event. After all, he is the LAST Australian recipient of the Imperial Victoria Cross, and also the ONLY living Australian of the Imperial Victoria Cross.
I am not, and don't pretend to be, a copyright expert, but the level of knowledge I have suggests to me that there isn't a problem. If there is a problem, I would VERY MUCH appreciate you bringing this to my attention so I can bring it to the attention of an "expert" who can address those issues.
Many thanks for posting on my talk page - most appreciated! Pdfpdf (talk) 11:16, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey! If you're trying to confuse me (and I warn you, that isn't hard), you've succeeded!!!
There now seem to be conversations on 3 or 4 (or more?) pages. How about you nominate ONE page as "the" page, and we consolidate all the bits and pieces onto that one page? I have the impression we agree with each other, but as I said, it's not hard to confuse me ... Thanks in advance. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 12:41, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
Some people are slower than others, then there's me ...
OK - (regarding this edit) Brain now engaged. (Thanks.) (As an aside, on such matters, it would be impossible to offend the AWM, but yes, I agree, that's not relevant.) Start again:
OK, thanks. Pdfpdf (talk) 13:03, 14 October 2013 (UTC) (What's the terminology? Roger. Wilco?)
LONG list of expletives deleted!
I've made 8 attempts to upload the photo to en:wp, but there's a new user-unfriendly brain-dead wizard that refuses to allow me to do it.
I have MANY better ways to waste my time, all-of-which do NOT lead to me wanting to re-program my computer with an axe.
Help?

Aircraft categories[edit]

Hi, in case you have not noticed yet, I have carried out a big cleanup of the Category:Supermarine Spitfire warbirds. Due to the variability, duplications and errors in sub-cat names there, I have converted all the sub-cats to the 'standard' registration cat format, [xxxxx (aircraft)], plus additional sub-cats for the (often hidden) civil registrations. This ensures that users can hopefully find images via any registration or serial as well as via aircraft type. I know from your talk history that an editor raised this subject with you before. Personally, I have never liked the registration cat format, but we appear to be stuck with it. However, I have occasionally modified it for disambiguation of same registration used on multiple aircraft, so perhaps an intermediate format could also be used in relevant cases, eg museum aircraft. So, for example we could have [xxxxx (Spitfire IX)] instead of your favoured format [Spitfire xxxxx]. This would follow a common practice on en:wp and Commons of separating parameters by placing one within brackets. An additional benefit of this format would be that we would not need to manually add a registration sort key for each sub-cat. If appropriate, we could propose this on Commons talk:WikiProject Aviation. I welcome your agreement or comments. I'll be watching here. PeterWD (talk) 18:12, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Peter, read and understood. The reason I used the Aircraft type+Serial category names is that it's really irritating and timewasting to find a parent category such as Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and not know what types the aircraft in it are. If I'm just looking for Hurricanes there I would have to look at all the categories to find all the Hurricanes. So I would support e.g. [xxxxx (Spitfire IX)]. Regarding all the different IDs a plane can have or has had in the past, I provided them in the category description when known, which is searchable. I agree we need a standard category name format and if I create any in future I'll conform with it. But I think the current format is unsuitable for the reason given above, and needs to be discussed and hopefully modified. I'm happy to participate constructively in any discussion on this. My approach is that whatever best meets our customers' needs should be the way to go. Regards, Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 00:36, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Rod, thanks for your thoughts. I'll try to write a proposal for WikiProject Aviation for perhaps this time tomorrow, using some existing examples of mixing the standard registration format with other methods. So far, I've identified Category:G-BOAD (aircraft) and Category:N740 (aircraft) as possible candidates. PeterWD (talk) 11:10, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Further progress, or more likely lack of. The place for getting consensus is Category talk:Aircraft by registration, but there is an unresolved CFD there, and some of the talk contributions display lack of rational thought, analysis or open mindedness, so I'm scared off that for the moment. I have experimented with placing registration (or serial) ahead of description, but it only seems practical for very short category names, as in my N740 example. To me, longer names don't look good in Category:Aircraft by registration, so I've had to fall back on the two-step method as in G-BOAD example, while working on cats for N515NA and N7001U, and for NC91008 I had to chop the aircraft type down to just DC-3 in the descriptive cat name to minimise the length. (BTW, now discovered that MoF has 2 DC-3s marked NC91008, and another 727). I'll continue thinking and exploring.PeterWD (talk) 11:10, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Battles[edit]

I found out that you created two almost identical categories:

Assume we are talking about the same battle. I am not specialised in naval history, so I think we have to integrate these categories. I know another battle of the Falkland Islands:

What do you suggest? --Stunteltje (talk) 14:28, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

"Battle of Coronel" was a German victory, "Battle of the Falkland Islands" was what the British called their victory in the succeeding battle i.e they were separate battles in 1914. "Falklands War" was what the British call the1982 war, Argentina calls it "Malvinas War". I agree that this can be confusing to non-Brits and possibly "Battle of the Falkland Islands (1914)" and "Falklands War (1982)" may prevent confusion. But much discussion would be necessary first ! Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 02:26, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Definately. I feel that this concerns politics and although being a blunt Dutchman, I know that just changing will be dangerous. I'll do a suggestion in the village pump and from there the discussion will start in the right place. --Stunteltje (talk) 08:23, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
I went to the Dutch village punp and wrote:

Ik verwacht een (politiek) gevoelige discussie over het samenvoegen en/of hernoemen van een paar categorieën:

en de bijbehorende:

De "Battle of Coronel" was een Duitse zege, maar Engeland zegevierde uiteindelijk in de daarop volgende "Battle of the Falkland Islands", oftewel het zijn twee verschillende zeeslagen in dezelfde oorlog van 1914. En of het de "Falklands War" was in 1982 of de "Malvinas War" hangt van het land van de gebruiker af. Ik dacht dus aan Category:Battles of the Falkland Islands (1914) met subcategie Category:Battle of Coronel en daarnaast aan Category:Falklands War (1982) om het eenvoudig op te lossen. (Met redirects vanaf de overeenkomstige categorieën van de Maldivas). De vraag is dus, waar kaart ik dat het beste aan in Commons, zodat iedereen er z'n zegje over kan doen en er hopelijk geen editwars over ontstaan. --Stunteltje (talk) 09:07, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Battle of Coronel was in the Pacific. Battle of Falkland Islands was in the Atlantic. Two totally separate battles, part of World War I. But I agree about redirect for Malvinas, to Falklands War (1982); and I agree geen editwars ! Rcbutcher (talk) 09:30, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

File:The Defence of Duffer's Drift prologue. The book is attributed to a Lieutenant N. Backsight Forethought, otherwise known as Major General Sir Ernest Dunlop Swinton..jpg[edit]

Hi, I've replied on the talk page - the image should be speedily removed, while the book's cover (another image) should go as a thumbnail to Wikipedia so I can write a fair use rationale for it - that should be an uncontroversial move.

Hello. I usually agree with Jim's logic, but I am not sure I do so in this case. In any event, I've left a brief note on his talk page questioning the use of U.S. copyright law to make a determination on Commonwealth copyright law, and we'll see what happens.

WWI posters[edit]

Hi, as you have been helping with improving scans of wartime artwork, I thought I'd drop you a head's up about my recently started uploads from the Library of Congress at World War I posters in the Library of Congress, a collection which includes non-US posters. All files should be in jpg and tif format, so if you want to help by cropping any, the best thing would probably be to crop the high resolution tif, and create the result as a new jpg as a linked derived work. -- (talk) 09:37, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

National Portrait Gallery[edit]

Hi, I notice you have recently uploaded two images from the NPG; Frederickpile.jpg, Aylmerhaldane.jpg. The NPG claim copyright on both and are not currently making either image available for use on wikipedia. As I understand it Wikipedia policy would not regard one of them at least to be free of copyright. Next month, the NPG have a planned review of their licencing arrangements and I hope they will relax their current restrictions by which the images they hold can be used on wikipedia. The appearance now of these and other images both on wikipedia and in wikimedia commons is unfortunate timing. Please can you hold off uploading anything else from this source outside of the terms of their licence arrangements and consider removing from commons any more of their images you have uploaded. Thanks. Graemp (talk) 21:05, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Rod, in fact i'm not, maybe i have some minor knowledge referring to South Indian issues i'm interested in ;-) In case of doubt those media generally may be placed p.e. in "Unidentified temples in Kerala" etc. or for India-related unidentified media long-time-ago i tryed to use wiki respectively g...le assistance by the file description trying to identify such buildings.

Royal Arthur[edit]

In Commons we use the Commons way of categorising, not the way the national Wikipedia's use. They differ from country to country. For naval ships we use the year of first commisioning here and not the year of launching. Please revert.

Seems strange to me : why should ships have different names on Commons than they do on e.g. EN Wikipedia ? Who are "we" ? Where was this decided by a group of experts ? Personally I don't care which of the years we use so long as Wiki is consistent across its different repositories. It can't be (1891) in EN Wiki and (ship, 1893) in Commons.

Obvious in Template:Rename[edit]

I cannot rename as "obvious errors" as per a recent request. An obvious error is "standing on an arm" when it is a leg. If there is an error that can be proved via research then we need to step through the hoops with the use of Template:Fact disputed. Start the talk page discussion, etc. Then we can look to a rename with the use of an additional parameter used as the argument and point to the discussion.
In the recent request the source says Syria, so please use File talk:451 Sqn RAAF Hurricanes Syria 1942.jpg to go through the process.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:49, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion.

NO. 10 group ops room[edit]

Sorry, just saw this message again and actually read it this time. Your original response came in before I saw the first post, so I never really looked at it.

Actually the reason I removed the Middle Wallop tag was because, according to my references, No. 10 was not located Middle Wallop, but at RAF Box. But I can honestly say I don't know which one it really was, and it seems the description with the image is authoritative...

So, may I task you with the job of doing a tiny bit of research into this and finding out where this room really was?

Thanks for uploading File:BL 6 inch 26 cwt MK I howitzer buffer and recuperator diagram.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Bots[edit]


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.
