Ceiling[edit]

HI there! I see that you nom of that very nice ceiling is going a bit slow. Reading Daniel's comment, I think he's right. Anyway, I did some very delicate tweaking of the photo using gradient filters in Lightroom. I adjusted the color temp of the shadows vs highlights so that they match each other more and used the gradients to get a more homogeneous color/saturation/light/etc in the pic. Also added a bit of light, folks here like that. ;) cf. this. You can find my tweaked version in my Dropbox via this link. It's yours if you want to use it or try to copy the alterations. If you like that version better, you could shut down the current nom and make a new with a tweaked pic. Cheers, --cart-Talk 20:46, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

@W.carter: Slow indeed. I also agree with Daniel's comment, though it's not something I feel confident about fixing. Thanks so much for making these adjustments. I agree it looks better/more uniform now. I'm going to go ahead and just upload that version -- is it possible to export those adjustments in a lightroom file so I can see what you did? No worries if it's a bother.
I'm unclear about best practices for new versions at FPC. Just checked the rules again and didn't find a recommendation. It seems like sometimes people withdraw and renominate, sometimes people create a second section of the same page, etc. Based on your advice, it sounds like you recommend starting anew -- is that a general practice or just in this case? — Rhododendrites talk |  21:26, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
It would be bordering on impossible to tell you exactly what I've done, since the gradient filters can't be quantified. It would require a screenshot of the whole setup for each gradient and I'm not up to doing that right now, sorry. The basis for the whole thing though is the use of Split toning, you could check that out in this tutorial. It's useful when you have scenes that are in both shadow and light.
There are no specific rules or ways of nominating a new fixed version of a photo, it's a case by case decision. If the nomination is just a day or so old, and it's high on the list, adding an "Alt version" is usually best. When the nom has slided down the list a bit, it's better to make a new nom since most users seldom revisit noms they have passed over or 'opposed' to before. There are also voters who only show up about once a week and they will miss an "Alt version" if it's added a bit into the voting period. In this case, I think it's better to make a fresh start to shake things up a bit. --cart-Talk 21:47, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear license reviewer[edit]

If you use the helper scripts, you will find the links next to the search box (vector) or as single tabs (monobook). They are named license+ and license-.

Hi Rhododendrites, thanks for your request for license reviewer status. The request has been closed as successful, and you've been added to the list of reviewers. You can now start reviewing files – please see Commons:License review and Commons:Flickr files if you haven't done so already. We also have a guide how to detect copyright violations. Potential backlogs include Flickr review, Picasa review, Panoramio review, and files from other sources. You can use one of the following scripts by adding one of the lines to your common.js:

importScript('User:ZooFari/licensereviewer.js'); // stable script for reviewing images from any kind of source OR
importScript('User:Rillke/LicenseReview.js'); // contains also user notification when review fails, auto blacklist-check and auto-thank you message for Flickr-reviews.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons webchat on irc.freenode.net. You can also add {{user license reviewer}} to your user page if you wish. Thank you for your contributions on Commons! Guanaco (talk) 01:59, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Weak votes at FPC[edit]

Hi! Please don't use any other voting templates that the three basic ones at FPC ( s, o, neutral ). The bot counting the votes can't read {{weak oppose}} and such. Use the piping instead, like this: {{o|Weak oppose}}, or you can write whatever colorful vote you want. I saw that you had used the 'weak' template in one of your votes, I hade fixed that for you. Cheers, --cart-Talk 09:25, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

@W.carter: Aha! Thanks for fixing. BTW haven't had a chance to come back to the ceiling/Lightroom yet, but thanks for that. On my way out now to a little wildlife refuge I didn't know existed on an island in Queens. :) — Rhododendrites talk |  14:34, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
No worries! :) "There is no deadline on the Wiki project." Enjoy your time in the wild. Please tell me a bit about it later, my sister lives on Long Island from time to time, so I'll have to give her a tip about it. --cart-Talk 14:51, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

2017-01-29 'Muslim ban' protests[edit]

I note with some surprise that you have yet to fix the damage discussed at User talk:Pigsonthewing/Archive 1#'Muslim_ban'. Please do so now. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:03, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

@Pigsonthewing: I do remember you created an absurdly named category called "29 January 2017 SFO 'Muslim Ban' protest", complete with weird quotes and a lead-off date when there was not yet another event/date to distinguish it from (and, I might add, all of the images we had at the time were for an event on 28 January, not the 29th -- a few of the images were just taken shortly after midnight).
So I changed it to "Protest at San Francisco International Airport against Donald Trump's January 2017 executive order on immigration", standardizing it with the others. You nonetheless complained about "damage", and I told you that I'd check again in a few days, and if we had images from more than one event at SFO, I would reintroduce the date. Then, a few days later, I did just that. People went back to SFO the following evening to stage another protest, and we got some pictures from it. Voila, a parent category for protests and subcategories for two events.
So looking at your category, "29 January 2017 SFO 'Muslim Ban' protest" and the current category, "Protest at San Francisco International Airport against Donald Trump's January 2017 executive order on immigration, 2017-01-29", the only thing that could be perceived as "damage" is, what, that it's longer now rather than 'Muslim Ban'? — Rhododendrites talk |  14:02, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Foliage[edit]

Yeah, I knew that day was going to be special when I headed up there. This image I took on the way up was how it looked. Of course, all the shutterbugging stops from that trip delayed the start of the hike, to the point that when I finally reached Buck Ridge I passed on continuing on to the summit (not like I haven't been there before), and had to head down early so I could get back to the falls while it was still not quite dark (which I did, but only with my headlamp on. Not the first or last time that's happened when I've gone hiking, either).

I suppose I should at some point drive up to the Catskills just for the pictures, and not try to hike on the same trip. Daniel Case (talk) 19:06, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Pinging you because one or more of your images are included. We'll have a good sized display screen set up somewhere, cycling through them throughout the day. You can see the images at User:Rhododendrites/Wikipedia Day 2018. That page is just a drafting space I used while collecting the images, though.

Xmas light pics[edit]

There is, to be honest, an extremely low likelihood that I will ever find myself with enough free time/be motivated enough to actually put the whole DR list together. I give myself too much to do that will not be so controversial. If I actually do, I will give you a heads-up. Daniel Case (talk) 05:40, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

@Daniel Case: I hope you can see why this might be frustrating. Rather than assessing based on an image's merits, you're opposing at FPC based on the belief that images violate FOP rather than go through the proper channels that actually determine whether Commons considers them to violate FOP. I will take the risk of nominating one or more myself to resolve this. Presumably, if there is not support for deletion, and if the nature of the image is generalizable, then that would remove the need to oppose (for that reason anyway)? — Rhododendrites talk |  05:45, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

New upload[edit]

@Rhododendrites: I've uploaded a new version of my paddy fields, cropped following your suggestion Commons:Featured_picture_candidates/File:Blond_and_green_rice_fields.jpg -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:05, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

a heads up[edit]

You wrote, "We have a dedicated "author" field that looks to have been properly filled out."

With regard to the reliability of the author field... I did a google search for images associated with WMF contributor Rhododendrites, re-used by people outside of the WMF. A quick glance didn't show any obvious instances where Rhododendrites was credited for images you had merely uploaded.

My experience is different. A similar google search for images credited to me shows lots of good faith re-users, who want to comply with their obligation to properly credit the images they re-use, get it wrong. A considerable fraction of the time people re-use images I merely uploaded, that were taken by someone else, they credit me, not the actual photographer.

I've called for a redesign of how we present images to our readers. Even putting the content of the author field in a larger font, or in bold, would make a big difference. Geo Swan (talk) 21:47, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

@Geo Swan: Thanks for the note. The point I wanted to make at Anna Frodesiak's page is just that I don't think the wording of a user category is very consequential in this regard. When an external site gets it wrong, it's almost certainly because they looked at the uploader field at the bottom of the page, not that they turned on hidden categories and looked at the little text there. Ultimately, they were just lazy, and it's hard to account for that. :) Maybe there's something to be said for your proposed strategies (e.g. making the font bigger). Or maybe a big "use this media" button, that copies the information to the user's clipboard or something.
On the google search tangent, I had to scroll pretty far down before finding something that I uploaded but didn't create being credited to me: this one (File:Zazel3 edited.jpg) despite the wording of my usercats. :) — Rhododendrites talk |  15:19, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Oh dear. I found several including this one. There must be many more. Rhododendrites, thanks for sticking up for me, but I think Geo Swan makes a good point. I'm so sorry for all of this. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 00:23, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
@Anna Frodesiak: I'm sticking to my story. :) I cannot imagine a usercat is to blame, but the point is nonetheless well taken. — Rhododendrites talk |  00:26, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. But are there cases with Category:Files uploaded by Mary Jane, Source:Bob Tographer and the image gives credit to Mary Jane? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 00:32, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Oh, by the way, Google is blocked here in China. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 00:35, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Couldn't say, re: Mary and Bob. I think for that to be likely you would need an improperly formatted usercat (not hidden), and for someone's eyes to slip to the bottom of the screen past all of the more obvious content. Not saying it's impossible, though, and I agree it's better to name them properly.
Out of curiosity, what's your preferred image search engine? I don't think I've used anything other than here, Flickr, and Google. — Rhododendrites talk |  00:42, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Understood about your first point. About your second: Bing images and Yahoo images. Terrible, I know, but no choice. I do miss Google. By the way, Flickr is blocked here to. :( Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:02, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the reply Rhododendrites, I am going to strongly disagree with your comment "When an external site gets it wrong, it's almost certainly because they looked at the uploader field at the bottom of the page..."
When end users make the same mistake, over and over again, the person to blame, is not the end user, but the team who designed the original interface, and didn't fix it, when repeated mistakes indicated its design flaws caused it to be a regular trigger for end user errors.
Surely it would be trivial to render the contents of the author field in bold? In a font twice as large as the uploader field?
Are you familiar with the long-running RISKS digest? I've been reading it for over thirty years. This is an issue the experts who comment there return to, again and again. The Airbus 320 is a good example. It was the first airliner designed with "fly-by-wire" control system -- like a high-performance jet fighter. Old-fashioned planes, even the 747, have a mechanical connection between the pilot's control stick, pedals, and the planes control surfaces, the flasp, rudder, etc.
The Airbus 320's controls were connected solely to a flight control computer system. The computer system interprets the pilot's use of the traditioal controls, and decides how to move the plane's control surfaces. It can over-ride the pilot's intent. It can basically outsmart the pilot.
Hubris.
First, the designers did not understand the full complexity of the skills an experienced pilot can bring to piloting, Second, they didn't fully take into account the human factors issues in their design.
Guess what? The Airbus wasn't safer than airliners piloted in the traditional fashion. There was great pressure on crash investigators to blame the pilot -- not the interface.
The Airbus interface had a complex suite of audible warnings. During some emergencies a dozen audible warnings would sound -- often with none of them having to do with actual trigger to the emergency. After the crash Airbus would say (paraphrasing) "Clear pilot error! Why the pilot should have realized that the ABC warning was a clue that the DEF system had failed. A dozen warnings are distracting, when eleven of them are largely or entirely irrelevant.
We have something similar here. While the uploader's name is in the same font as the author field, from a human factors point of view, it is much more prominent. The author field is surrounded by text a potential re-user probably isn't paying attention to, in the middle of a very long page. The uploader field is not surrounded by as much distracting text, and it is right at the end pf the page. Like movie credits, the very beginning is the most prominent place, and the end is the second most prominent place. That is why when a movie has a really well known star, in a cameo, or smaller role, than the lead actors, the credits will list the lead, followed by the ordinary supporting actors, and, at the end, it will say "with Marlon Brando". Actor's agents fight tooth and nail for whom gets listed in the second most prominent spot, but we give it to the uploader -- not the author.
So, when our end users make the mistake of crediting the uploader, the fault lies with our design. Sorry, I think there is really no two ways about this. Geo Swan (talk) 18:53, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
@Geo Swan: I don't disagree with you. :) It sounds like a good idea to restyle the page to make it clearer. The only point I wanted to make through al of this is about the likelihood of the usercat to cause misattribution (that it's very unlikely, but more likely that it's because someone looked at the uploader field). Fine to reframe the discussion to say it's not the user's fault at all, but this started with a usercat issue, not a redesign issue. :) Do ping me if you propose a redesign and I would likely support. — Rhododendrites talk |  03:19, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Contest Blue January Voting[edit]

Salud Rhododendrites, not sure if you can work and support with this issue. I added this in comment, but have "delete entry" --->

Hello, I miss some entries at "2018 - January - Blue/Voting" and I see double entries. I submitted "File:Hotel Pyramide 001 (Fürth).jpg" this is a missing image, from me. Doublettes areː 106. Twilight in Goa Late evening on the Mandovi, Goa 109. Kochi Harbour Bolgatty Palace as seen from Marine drive, Kochi " Sorry for asking, but I don´t know someone else ;-)Regards, Hans-Jürgen Neubert

@Hans-Jürgen Neubert: Hello. I looked into your missing image. It looks like it was removed because the contest is only open to images uploaded during the month of January. File:Hotel Pyramide 001 (Fürth).jpg was uploaded in December, so would not be eligible, sorry to say. As for the duplicates, I will ping Jarekt as I am not sure the best way to remove them. He may know better. — Rhododendrites talk |  06:50, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
ː@Rhododendrites: Hello, Rhododendrites. Thanks for your supportǃ Bad thing with upöoad-Time, something new for me. We will see what Jarekt can correct. Nice WE, Hans-Jürgen
sorry about the discualification of the image. Software processing those pages rejects images outside of upload window. We should craft some message to notify photographers, but there are always many images rejected in each challenge. I will fix the duplicates Jarekt (talk) 16:47, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

FPC dahlia[edit]

Sorry if I got your hopes up too much. The photo is very good for QI but just short of FP. I've also noticed, sometimes to my dismay, that I've become increasingly picky at FPC. :-( Becoming more seasoned is good when writing articles, but I'm not sure if losing that sense of wonder for beautiful photos because of some small thing is progress. --cart-Talk 09:19, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

While walking down memory lane with your photos, I gave two of my favorites some TLC. (File:Xiangqi in Sara D. Roosevelt Park (00185).jpg & File:Golden eagle at ACES (11738).jpg) Please revert if you don't like it and tell me to mind my own business. IMO they are now good to go for FPC. I will nominate them later if you don't beat me to it. Right now I'm on a "one of mine and one by someone else" run. ;) --cart-Talk 16:39, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
@W.carter: to the first point: nothing to be sorry for. Took a shot; didn't work out. :) Feedback is useful regardless of whether it's for the purpose of FPC.
To the second, that's very interesting. I do remember you commenting on the xiangqi pic. As usual, though I do like both, neither of these are the sort that I would've thought to send to FPC. Figured not every person being in focus in the first and the bird partially covering her face in the second might be practically disqualifying. We shall see. :) Thanks. — Rhododendrites talk |  22:00, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
While you may not know it, you are one of the few people here who take good photos of events and people in their daily lives. That is actually your strength and perhaps you should focus more on that for good shots rather than flowers. There are so many of us snapping flowers but very few who go out and photograph events like you do. Given that you have easy access to NY, you are also more likely than most to get really interesting documentary photos. Like these: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6], a fixed-up version of this [7] would be wonderful, as would this [8]. Most of these may not be slam-dunk FPs, but the "eye" behind them can certainly deliver.

User:Stephencdickson's collages[edit]

Looks like this thread got autoarchived after a week with no responses. What's the best thing to do from here? Restarting the conversation at the Copyright Pump? --Lord Belbury (talk) 09:12, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

@Lord Belbury: Not sure what the best route would be. I did post to that thread after it had largely died down. I also happened across another user's page which had similar images displayed: File:Zoe Lund.jpg, File:Miranda Kerr drawing.jpg, and File:Malcolm X drawing.png are clear copies of (and do not even provide attribution to) this, this, and this, respectively. Worth bringing back to VP, or just to DR? I hate to nominate people's hard work like this, but these seem pretty egregious. — Rhododendrites talk |  23:54, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
I wouldn't want to put them up for deletion without seeing the "specific requests from other wikimedia/wikipedia authors and senior editors to use the technique" that the user was telling us about, in case we're all missing something, but I assume there must have been some kind of misunderstanding here. I'll raise it on the copyright pump. --Lord Belbury (talk) 09:23, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
