Streptopus amplexifolius

Hello Walter, have you read my comment on "Streptopus amplexifolius" in VI? --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 06:40, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

I replied there. Thank you. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 06:53, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Metadata in file description

Hi, I noticed that you added metadata in file description. Your photos are good and I understand you pay attention to technical specs, but I wonder if this is necessary to do that. For users that do not know much about photo technique, it looks rather confusing. For those who know, it is better to directly look at the automatically added metadata: they are not wiki-editable (fool-proof), machine readable and translated into numerous languages, which is not the case of manually added metadata)--Zolo (talk) 12:11, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

I automated metadata listing for my files in 2006 when support for extracting metadata was unreliable and my bug report was not addressed in a reasonable time, c.f., File:Purshia tridentata 8234.jpg. It seems to be more robust now. Thank you. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 16:38, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
Ooh I see. I think it is fixed now - at least I have never any major problem on recent files)--Zolo (talk) 17:51, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Upload mistake


I've uploaded a picture from flickr this morning (File:GoreText_Experience_Tour_-_Chris_Sharma.jpg). But I've seen that I did a mistake regarding to the license. Can you help me to correct this and delete the file that, if I'm correct, doesn't fit Wiki license? Cordially. --Helgismidh (talk) 10:47, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello my friend,
Could you copy the content of {{Taxonavigation/sandbox}} into {{Taxonavigation}}?
I have added a bad usage detector ;-)
