Hey Vanderdecken, glad you found it useful. :)

One reason not to have the bot signature is that the bot's talk page RDRs to the bot operator's talk page. His bot actually does heaps of work, including marking untagged images, so he is quite overwhelmed with random people contacting him already I think. :) cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 13:17, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Please note - the welcome template above is not subst'd on purpose - I need the most recent version, so I've left it as a normal transclusion. — Vanderdeckenξφ 17:18, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

no way....[edit]

hello there Vanderdecken,

thank you for your message. you must be joking, you were actually able to correct the image of Queen Elisabeth of Romania so much to make it look the new way it does now? I can't believe this, this is just amazing work! unless you are pulling my leg.... Gryffindor 21:54, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

I uploaded this image once, Image:Olympia Mancini Vienna Oct. 2006 009.jpg, I know it's a difficult one but is it possible to do something about it? I would like to compare results with one created by User:Para. thank you for your time and efforts, it is greatly appreciated. Gryffindor 21:59, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
amazing... well thanks for the information. I had the same problem, that by taking a picture of an image upfront, the reflection from the canvas would spoil it. on the other hand, I didn't know that by taking it from the side a photo-programme could still fix it. Good to know, I'll keep it in mind next time. I hope you stick around the Commons for a long time to come, your efforts are greatly appreciated and it's nice to have knowledgeable users like you, good job. if you ever need help with anything as well from a sysop, please let me know and I'll see what I can do. sincerely Gryffindor 21:06, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

categorising[edit]

Hey there Vanderdecken,

I am sorry but I had to completely revert your addition of other categories to the image Image:Elisabeth of Wied.jpg. Basic policy of the Commons is to avoid over-categorisation of images. To understand how the category tree and network works, I suggest you this link Commons:Categories#Over-categorization. Basically since the image is already in category A, which is listed in B and in C and so forth, the image itself is not listed in A, B, C again separately if it already exists in A. Otherwise categories would be teeming with images all over the place. Feel free to ask me or any other sysop if you have any further questions. Gryffindor 16:50, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

Thanks! thats very nice of you :) --Astrokey44 11:26, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Image:Erzherzogin Maria Elisabeth 001.jpg[edit]

hi Vanderdecken how are you?

I uploaded some images which are slanted, do you think you could create some magic again in your spare time? cheers Gryffindor 09:40, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Upload all you want, you don't have to ask me. Unfortunately I am not pleased with the result here Image:Martin van Meytens 003.jpg, can you try to figure it out with the original image that I uploaded? If the face of Erzherzogin Maria Elisabeth was too squashed, maybe try this one Image:Erzherzogin Maria Elisabeth 002.jpg? Thanks. Gryffindor 21:57, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the welcome. --Polygon! 15:39, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Vanderdecken!

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.
