I translated the article en:Regions of Peru in French and presented it to the Good Article Review (it is a vote in the French wikipedia). One of the voter suggests that the map would be better with a scale (in kilometers). Do you think that you could add it ? May I suggest that you add scales on your other maps ? Thanks for the maps, they are very useful. Best. Poppy 19:53, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
- I noticed the translation on fr.wiki, great job. I will look into it. Next thing on my list is to work on the maps again. --ErickAgain 19:25, 20 April 2008 (UTC).
- Added a scale bar on the administrative blue map of Peru. --ErickAgain 17:18, 7 May 2008 (UTC).

PLEASE STOP REVERTINGEdit
You have "reverted" work that I spent hours on for several projects on WikiSource. I place Books on WikiSource and I want these images to go in those books. I uploaded them for a reason. This work (& more to come) exist only because M.F. Maury sent 2 expeditions to draw scenes & explore South America. They are to be used by me again in BOOKS on WIKISOURCE. PLEASE stop reverting. PLEASE undo your reverting. We here on Wiki areas are supposed to work together, not against one another. I did not do as I did for no reason. I have many more images I plan to use but I don't want them reverted too. Otherwise it is useless for me to scan, resize, and clean these many images right down to **pixel editing** (a lot of time and work) these images.

- "Hi, You've recently re-added categories after I removed them in several files. The reason I removed them was to avoid over-categorisation, which significantly reduces the usefulness of categories. Please read COM:OVERCAT before making more of these types of edits. Thanks Ozhiker (talk) 22:44, 19 October 2009 (UTC)"
- I didn't see a talk page for the above person so I guess it is you (with another account?)since you are the person who reverted. Okay, I see the point about over-categorisation and that makes a lot of sense. I have seen areas that had so many categories that I began to add more categories which is only more work. I had assumed since I was seeing them that they were supposed to be like that. My mistake and I don't want to add a lot of categories anyhow. However, I do need this, at least until I finish what I need to do with several books. I do need to add the category Category: Matthew Fontaine Maury. As far as I care that is the only one I actually need. I have about six books going on WikiSource now with several more to come. Kind regards and thank you for the polite explanation, William Maury Morris (talk) 23:09, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
- Nope, Ozhiker is not me ;-). My first revert concerned Category:Peru, which i try to keep clear of images by moving all images to specific categories. My recent reverts were to versions that Ozhiker already had investigated. In my edit summaries I tried to explain my reverts. I tried to keep the William Maury Morris categories but as it seems inadvertently reverted some of them also, my apologies for that. --ErickAgain (talk) 14:00, 20 October 2009 (UTC).
Peru: Cities and villages in region of [..]Edit
Hi Erick. Two weeks ago, you made a series of requests to move pages from the above to "Cities and villages in the [..] region.". I was about to move them when I noticed that the parent category has "region" spelled with a capital "R". May I change it directly to that? -- User:Docu at 06:27, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

I noticed that you have uploaded several pictures of the surroundings of Casma, I'm definitely interested if you have one picture representative of the city (Plaza de armas, Church etc.) to illustrate an article about Casma, which is missing on the French wikipedia.
Thanks by advance !
My name is Abby Sullivan and I am a master's student studying in Iceland looking at the potential for marine spatial planning in Iceland. I am working on creating a marine spatial plan for a pilot study of Ísafjarðardjúp. I've been living in Isafjordur now for a year, so I have some local knowledge about the djup, but I need to find as much information (in english) as I can about the djup. If you have any sources or recommendations for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, the image that you added doesn't include Jokulfirdir to the north -I've been told by a few people that those fjords are also technically part of Ísafjarðardjúp???
Thanks, any information would be greatly appreciated. Abby
Main catagory RotterdamEdit
Because you don't seem to know why some images that you 'catagorised away from' the Rotterdam main catagory have been placed back there (too), hereby the motivation:
Especcially now that the Rijksdienst voor het Culturele Erfgoed has overloaded the main catagory of most Dutch cities and other places with hundreds and in some cases thousands of black/white images of decennia ago, of which a lot more than that are either too detailed and structural for a general photo-site like Commons, or too unsightly and in some cases really disgusting, it is concidered to be relatively important that in the main category of the relevant places as much as possible good and representative other photo's are in the first rows.
For only thus these catagories can function as the 'show-window' of the relevant subject (i.c. town or other place) which they should be in the interest of most visitors, who most likely expect to immedeately find a collection of the most representative images about the subject they turn to Commons for.
Of course it's possible that you think one or more of the Rotterdam images I uploaded thus that they are in the first rows of the main category are not "good" and/ or not "representative", but in that case please give a motivation before categorising them away from the main one; especcially now (which situation according to the discussion of which a copy goes hereby, still can last for years).
- Thanks for the info, for the time being seems ok, but the idea still is to categorise all images and completely empty the Rotterdam category. Just as it almost was when i was working on it before the upload of all the RCE images. So to make clear the reason for recategorising was not beacasue the images were not good or not representative. Besides all this: for a general show-window the Rotterdam page can be used --ErickAgain 19:57, 30 July 2013 (UTC).
- User Natubico apparently has some preconceived ideas about Commons that are not common on Commons, as far as I know. I agree with your stance to empty the city category completely. A "show-window" will per definition be filled with POV pictures, which is not as per wikipedia for the common good. --VanBuren (talk) 12:55, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
Visual File Changer.jsEdit
Hi, I see you created some order in pictures related to Rotterdam, good work! Do you know VisualFileChange.js? It's a tool that lets you batch-edit files. For instance, you can prepand and append any text or replace WikiText. I find it really useful. --Vera (talk) 16:49, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth 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 (2013) 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. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 2 will end on .

When you move a category like Category:Haven van Dordrecht, it's better (and easier) to rename it instead of creating a new one. See the "move" link in the dropdown to the left of the Search box (if your interface is like mine). --ghouston (talk) 10:03, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Categorising with Cat-A-LotEdit
- Thank you for noticing. As a fact i'm using both gadgets at this moment more or less depending on the number of files and the number of categories i encounter. Hot-Cat is a bit easier to use and takes category redirection and disambiguation into account. --ErickAgain 15:21, 17 March 2015 (UTC).
