Your videos[edit]

Hello Rushenb, just want to say "thank you" for sharing your nice videos here. Please do not stop contributing here... Best wishes, --Pristurus (talk) 09:26, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Created categories[edit]

Hi Rushenb,
I really like your photos, videos and also your audio recording. I created a few categories just for you. You can find them at Category:Files of Thailand by User:Rushenb. Could you in future, besides placing your uploaded files in to one of the regular categories, also place them into one of these categories that I have just created? Photos into "Images of...", videos into "Videos of..." and all else into "Files of...". This will ensure that your files are easily accessible for others.

Hi again. I introduced an additional layer to the above user categories because I discovered that one of your photos was actually made in Sweden. The new category for files that are not from Thailand is Category:Files by User:Rushenb. It might seem that I am stalking your edits (which in a way is a bit true) but that is because, as I already mentioned above, I really like your uploads, and it would seem that you have a slight problem sometimes in getting your files correctly categorised. It is mainly because of the latter that I monitor your uploads, and categorise them where needed. Many thanks for the images, videos and audio recordings, Regards Takeaway (talk) 14:01, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi there.. First time I am using "talk" style messaging as I wasn't sure before where to reply, here in my profile or at yours. :) Thanks for your comments about my photos and thanks for correcting my categories. Now that you say, I will go through my files and see the amends you have made to categories so I can try mimic that for future uploads. Regards, 6 October 2014
Because categories sometimes change, it's best to check once in a while. An easy way to keep track of all changes to your files, is to, if you already haven't done so, to click on the "watch" button for each of your files. All changes will show up on your watchlist. Cheers! - Takeaway (talk) 19:34, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

That DR[edit]

Hope you weren't offended (through you didn't come across that way). I gather now that several people know you (and now I do), it just was not apparent from what I could see that it wasn't potentially a case of someone flickrwashing. I'm very glad it's not... your photos are very good. Sorry for the misunderstanding, and thanks for the awesome images. :) Revent (talk) 22:56, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

No, not at all. It is your job to follow up with the quality, but also from a legal perspective to make sure licenses are appropriate! I have a bit break with photography due to broken lenses, but it will be more photography contributions rest of my life I can assure. Cheers,

Spider photo[edit]

Hi, I assume you took the photo at File:Haplopelma lividum, Cobalt blue tarantula.jpg. Nice photo, but how was the spider identified? The usually reliable World Spider Catalog says it only occurs in Myanmar. Peter coxhead (talk) 21:01, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi. The location where I found it is a national park, the spot is nearly 40 km from Myanmars border in Phetchaburi Province of Thailand. The forest there is part of Western Forex Complex which is a continuous complex on both sides of the border covering over 18,000 sqkm. I posted the photo to a closed facebook group I am member of, called siamensig.org (there is a website with the same name). One of regular commentators there I know identified the species as Haplopelma lividum. Another friend of mine, mainly herper, too identified this species same. Googled a bit, I see many websites mention it is found in Thailand too; site #1, site #2, site #3, #4, #5. I can't find any scientific paper on this (about Thai locality), there is a potential one on a website which I don't want to pay for. -- Rushen (talk) 21:01, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
It all seems very likely to be correct. I do have access to some scientific journals through my academic institution, so I'll do a search myself. Peter coxhead (talk) 13:50, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Ah, this paper has a map on p. 16 showing H. lividum occurring along the Myanmar/Thai border. I'll add this information to the Wikipedia article. Peter coxhead (talk) 14:06, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Very glad to hear that. I wouldn't get disappointed if you dismissed this, I understand the importance of scientific evidence :) -- Rushen (talk) 21:23, 8 June 2016 (UTC+07:00)
Let me correct my opening remark: it's not a "nice photo", it's a fantastic photo. I've created a cropped version that looks better at the small size normal for a taxobox (see File:Haplopelma lividum, Cobalt blue tarantula cropped.jpg. Peter coxhead (talk) 17:17, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Lol, thanks! -- Rushen (talk) 01:12, 9 June 2016 (UTC+07:00)
