Hello, Rosser1954!

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

Thank you for your contributions. Your image or other content was recently deleted, or will soon be deleted, in accordance with our process and policies, because it was not, or is not, within our scope.

Hello Rosser1954!

Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the 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 the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. — Manecke 23:15, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello Rosser1954

Having looked at your photograph entitled Powgree Railway Bridge.JPG I would ask exactly where is this bridge?. I lived and played around that area as a child and written a book on my escapades there but don't recognise the bridge and as far as I know the Caledonia Railway Line was not near Kersland Glen. There was a railway line from the mine that was upstream from the Tianna Falls which crossed the Powgree Burn via a wooden bridge which no longer exists.

Thanking in in anticipation of an early reply.

Bill.

Hello Bill,

This is at the end of the old railway cutting that runs down from the site of Brackenhills station and crosses the Powgree Burn where the old cutting leading off to Kilbirnie East railway station has been filled in. The line closed in the 30s I think and came off the main line at Giffen - Kilbirnie Junction as it was called. You wrote a book - how can I get a copy?

Roger

Author[edit]

I assume that images such as the following are either scans or digital crops of the book(s). In that case you are not the author! Thanks! Duly noted.

and plenty more in your gallery. Unless you know better, these should probably be marked "unknown artist" or similar. Thanks for your comments on en.wiki - we all need to learn. It is worth "signing" your Talk page posts with "~~~~" Finavon (talk) 19:28, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Station categories[edit]

I have been tidying up the "Railway stations in ..." categories. You will find that all the stations with multiple images now have their own subcategories. If you upload a photo survey for a station without its own category then please create one and move any existing images from its county category into the new one.

Keep up the good work. Geof Sheppard (talk) 07:26, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

John Dunlop[edit]

Hi, I am interested in the image of a memorial to John Dunlop Esq you have uploaded to the Susanna Montgomery, Countess of Eglinton and Dundonald, South Ayrshire pages. The description you have given says James Dunlop, but my interpretation is that it reads John Dunlop.

I am wondering if you have any further information regarding this factor (or agent as I understand this to mean)? My specific interest is that my g-g-g-grandfather was a John Dunlop from Scotland born in 1777. If reading memorial correctly (which is very hard to do) it was dedicated in 1836 when Dunlop was 60. This would align with the birth date I have.

Thanks and best regards,

Jeremy

Kerse Bridge house[edit]

My grandmother Mrs Kirk managed the Railway inn at the turn of the last century and my father Alexander Kirk spent his boyhood years there. I have a photo of him outside the then 'Kirk's railway Inn' around 1910. He later attended Spier's school and served in France from 1917, graduated in medicine at Glasgow university and spent his professional life in England. I was excited at seeing the photo of the present Kerse bridge house . My photo is in an album but will try and upload it .

Any idea what the house round the corner on the edge of the Dubbs water was built for? Water bailliff for the loch? RSLlGriffith (talk) 20:16, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Barskimming Mill plaque[edit]

Hi

My great,great,grandfather William Alexander was the owner of this mill. I have visited the mill a few times but I never found the plaque stone in your photo. Can you remember the position of the plaque on the building.

Cheers Barry

Hello,

The plaque is situated above the large warehouse style entrance at the back of the mill, just after the old resedential flat. An interesting site with a lovely situation. I hope that the old mill gets converted into flats to save it from total ruin. RSLlGriffith (talk) 11:37, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

SEEKING PERMISSION TO USE 3 OF YOUR IMAGES[edit]

Dear Roger Griffith (Rosser1954)

We are visual artists and academics who are currently working on a chapter in a book entitled ‘The Photograph and the Album’ (published by MuseumsEtc http://museumsetc.com/blogs/news/7422776-forthcoming-the-photograph-and-the-album). We are also contributing to the editorship of this volume.

Our chapter is examining the role that the internet plays in acting as a 'giant photograph album'. We have taken this principle and have begun to look for images, searching – as many of us do – under our own names, curious to find out what images appear.

The following images came up in relation to one of our surnames:

Miller family of Chapeltoun - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Miller_chapeltoun.JPG Victorian Miller’s Sitting Room - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Victorian_Miller%27s_sittingroom.JPG Miller’s House - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hessilhead_Mill_and_Miller%27s_House.JPG

We are interested in using the image in our chapter and want to confirm that you agree that we can do this in line with the statement that appears in Wikimedia Commons which is as follows:

“I, the copyright holder of this work, release this work into the public domain. This applies worldwide. In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so: I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.”

To be clear about our use of the image, it will appear as part of a sequence of images for which we will provide full captions and acknowledgement (in reference to the information which appears on the webpage provided above).

We hope you are willing to give permissionand would appreciate if you would confirm this via this email - r.miller@salford.ac.uk . We would also be very grateful if you could inform us of any other parties from whom we should seek permission in reference to these images, if you are aware of any such parties.

We would appreciate it if you could respond by Friday April 19th 2013.

Thank you for your consideration & please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Very best regards

Rosie Miller & Jonathan Carson r.miller@salford.ac.uk

Andricus grossulariae gall pictures[edit]

I'm sorry to tell you that the nice pictures you have labelled Andricus grossulariae are certainly Knopper Galls. I will move them to the Andricus quercuscalicis category and remove them from associated wikipedia articles. In the meantime I will try and find some substitute pictures for grossulariae. As the text of the wikipedia article states, the galls are on the acorn cup, whereas those in your pictures are clearly developing on the acorn. Furthermore this species was not known as far north as Scotland in 2010 (and may not yet have reached Scotland): researchers at Edinburgh University did not have access to local material.
