License request[edit]

Before I delete your Image:500px-The_Earth_the_Moon_and_1_Ceres_(1_px_=_10_km).jpg, I thought I'd ask: did anything ever come of the license request? If not, please tell me so the image can be deleted. If the request was granted, please amend the image's license accordingly, and mention your success on Commons:Deletion requests so I can archive the discussion. Regards — Dan | Talk 19:21, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I've yet to receive any kind of answer. What I'll do is I'll replace the danged Ceres part of the image with a formless grey blob and re-upload the image. There isn't much in the way of detail in the offending image anyway.

Dear Urhixidur, first of all, many thanks for taking care of my request. I have added a suggestion for a better editing of the image at the address in subject. Again my thanks for your very kind help. Best, --Piero Montesacro 22:54, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Neptune's irregulars[edit]

Hi! Thank you for updating the svg file (Neptune irregulars); I’m a bit stuck in real life recently so I hardly noticed yesterday’s eclipse not alone the naming of the Neptune’s irregulars … Tried to improve the labels by switching from stroke to fill. "Fill" produced better results with the wiki renderer in the past but apparently not so any more. Feel free to switch back. Cheers. Eurocommuter 20:12, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Template:SupersededSVG[edit]

Please don't use this template on SVG images. AnonMoos 12:19, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Makes sense. Which image are you talking about? Urhixidur 02:52, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Image:Copper-symbol.svg and Image:Symbol venus.svg -- AnonMoos 01:19, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I should have used Template:Superseded instead. Thanks. Urhixidur 13:21, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Please stop misusing superseded tags[edit]

Dude, there are only limited circumstances in which one image can supersede another: when two images are visually basically equivalent, but one is in a preferred image format; when one image is visually "cleaner" and/or at a higher pixel resolution (this applies mainly to photograph-type images, rather than to abstract symbol images); and when one image is simply outright factually incorrect or obviously "broken" in some way. That's pretty much it -- and none of these reasons applies to the two images referenced above, and you personally happening not to like a particular image (from your individual aesthetic point of view) is not a valid reason to slap a "superseded" tag on... AnonMoos 14:58, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

I respectfully disagree. When given a choice between two SVGs where one uses a thin line and the other a thick one, the latter wins hands down over the former if the image is rendered at small sizes (such as thumbnails). You may have a point that one doesn't actually "supersede" the other, since I guess the thin-line version could have its uses somewhere. If the images are properly categorised, then there isn't even a need for cross-linking them. Seen in this light, I guess there isn't a need for a "Superseded" template then.
See, I argued myself to your stance. Maybe you should take a few notes and try reasonable argument before cranking the volume up to the next notch, as you did here (I never brought aesthetic considerations into the picture: you assumed that I did).  :-) Urhixidur 04:15, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Irregulars; update needed[edit]

Did not logged in for a few months; apologies. Started to look “what’s new” yesterday. Updating the data sources for TNOs. Irregulars will follow. Eurocommuter 15:17, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Bonjour, j'ai reverté l'ajout des accents sur Haumea et Makemake, n'ayant pas trouvé de preuve que ces graphies sont usitées dans les sources francophones de qualités de façon prépondérante.----Lilyu (talk) 23:30, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Pourquoi attendre ? Historiquement, on a toujours francisé les noms des corps célestes. Il suffit de regarder les noms des premières planètes mineures (Cérès, Junon, Astrée, etc.). Comme Maké-maké et Hauméa sont déjà les graphies établies des divinités éponymes, les graphies anglaises sont erronées. Urhixidur (talk) 12:43, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
Ce n'est pas de l'anglais, mais du maori. Je vous invite à militer auprès des astronomes français pour qu'ils utilisent des accents.
Quant aux dieux, les usages des formes avec accents sont minoritaires dans la littérature francophone, je ne dirais pas que les graphies que vous proposez soient "établies". --Lilyu (talk) 14:07, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]

Hello!

Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:

Dear Urhixidur,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.
