Categorize!Edit

Hello Alf, thanks for all of the great photos. However, might I ask that you add the requisite categories to your photos? It makes it easier to find them, so that they don't get lost in the maelstrom of information available here. I just edited a few of your photos to add categories, you can check my work if you have any questions or concerns. Best, Mr.choppers (talk) 07:21, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Got you! I don't use bots much; as I upload each and every picture manually I find it easier to categorize right away. And again, great photos and thanks for sharing. Mr.choppers (talk) 17:25, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

You might want to check out HotCat. // Liftarn (talk)

  • Hello Alf, may I ask you again to categorize your photos more carefully. In the last days, you uploaded beautiful photos of Volkswagen Transporter, generation T1 and T2. It would be nice if you put these cars in the proper category. It is quite a lot of work to recategorize all your photos. Thanks in advance. OnkelFordTaunus (talk) 16:33, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

picture framesEdit

In most cases, Wikimedia Commons is more interested in the painting themselves than in the frames, and sometimes frames can have problematic copyright status anyway... AnonMoos (talk) 18:58, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

It's possible in some cases for the frames to be copyrighted; I have no idea whether that's true for what you're photographing. See File:Moritz Calisch (1819-1870), Jonge Italiaanse vrouw in gebed, 1850, Olieverf op doek photo2.JPG for a few tips... AnonMoos (talk) 19:52, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Auto Union 1000 break image Doubt about the date of the carEdit

Auto Union AU 1000 (1968), Dutch licence registration JK-55-85 pic2.JPG

I think this excellent picture is unlikely to be of a 1968 car. As far as I know the model was replaced in Europe several years earlier. Please, why do you think it is a 1968 car? If it is down to the kenteken, then maybe the car was used first in Germany and then imported to NL in 1968. I think they were still manufactured in 1968 in Argentina but (1) I do not know if that included the estate model and (2) you would need to be very rich and determined to import an out of date Auto Union model from Argentina to Europe back then?

OR (which is very likely) am I missing something obvious? Thank you if you will have any thoughts on this. Regards Charles01 (talk) 13:39, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

The DKW/Auto-Union estate was made in Argentina till 1969 → http://www.cocheargentino.com.ar/a/auto_union.htm , one in that condition will set you back about 30,000 dollars down under, this one has the suicide doors so its probably a 1958 F94, good way of finding out is by the engine size, if its a 1000 cc it may be from Argentina.
...and by the way Charles01, saw that you've got a Mk 1 Scirocco on your talk page, I owned one of those (brand new) in that same colour! cheers - Moebiusuibeom-en (talk) 22:43, 26 January 2012 (UTC)


It looks as though there were rear hinged doors on the Argentinian built Auto Union 1000 even where it has four doors. Structural rigidity must have been horrible.
Thanks for a full and thoughtful answer. According to the english language wiki entry the Duesseldorf (ie German) built version had a 981cc engine which would have counted as 1000 cc Auto Union branded car (and was up from 896cc on the previous DKW badged model). I wrote most of that entry, so maybe I do not add much by quoting myself! But I did copy most of it from the German language entry, and I see that in the info box at the top of the page I did add the name of a book as an independent authoritative source for the (new) engine size, so I promise I didn't simply make it up! The door hinges do indeed recall the previous model / DKW F93, but the positioning of the badge on the front grill (not above it) suggest it is a feature of the Auto Union 1000. And when you took the picture it presumably had Auto Union (not DKW) written on it somewhere. So it looks like a sort of hybrid between the old and new. Maybe in the workshop where they did the estate they had some previous year components to use up so they put the new model's front decor (and maybe fitted its engine) on what was in other respects last year's model so as to sell it as the newer model at a newer price. The company was very short of cash at this time. 1958 seems a likely build year, but as you can tell, I'm still pretty confused...
The Argentinian website looks as if its been put together with some care, so I guess the car might be a more recent (than 1958) model built there. The Argentine version does indeed seem to have retained the rear hinged doors even after the European version had switched to front hinged doors - even for the four door version. Though it would still have been ... very unusual that anyone should take the Argentinian version of an (in European terms) obsolete car and spend time and money to import it to the Netherlands. Ah well.
Volkswagen ur Scirrocco Muenchen.JPG
Beautiful car (the original Giugaro Scirocco), though I think from inside more suitable for short people than for tall people, so probably NL was not their best market. At least, when I moved to work in Amstelveen I went from feeling tall (in England) to feeling on the small side of normal (in Nederland)....
I have another picture that same colour on a Scirocco taken in Munich when the car was newly introduced. (The month the German postage stamps were advertising some Weltmeisterschaft - I guess football?) I always liked that picture, but the lighting was never easy under a tree, and when I look at it now, either my eyes have changed or the film has faded. The angle's still usefully interesting but otherwise it doesn't look so good these days. Sorry .... you didn't deserve such a lengthy reaction. Regards Charles01 (talk) 07:11, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
Flickr disagrees. I found two other photos of the same car (here and here) which claim it as a "1962", and another one here which simply states that this car was built between 1957 and 1959. The mystery deepens. Mr.choppers (talk) 18:53, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Hoj Alf, if you have any more images of that Fennek vehicle, please add also [[Category:Fennek reconnaissance vehicles in Dutch service]]. Regards, De728631 (talk) 17:40, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Author categoryEdit

Hi Alfvanbeem,

If you are interested, I could create a category Category:Photographs by Alfvanbeem or Category:Photographs by Alf van Beem and have my bot add your uploads in there. It would take the bot some time to add them, but it wouldn't involve too much work. It could make it easier to navigate through your photographs, similar to Category:Images by S.J. de Waard.

BTW thanks for sharing your photographs with us. It's a substantial part of our Commons ships collection. --  Docu  at 14:17, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Reply: Hi Docu, I hope i am responding in the right way. Please do as you suggested. Thanks and regards, Alf

Thanks for your response. Do you prefer "Photographs by Alfvanbeem" or "Photographs by Alf van Beem" (or some other variant)? Subcategories at Category:User categories (flat list) use quite a few different variations. --  Docu  at 20:09, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Reply: Hi Docu, "Photographs by Alf van Beem" would be nice i think. Thanks, Alf

Ok. I did some of it today. I will try to finish tomorrow. --  Docu  at 19:13, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

I guess this was just a mistake. But you better check so you haven't "taken credit" from someone else on other images :-) Cheers! /V-wolf (talk) 20:48, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Alfvanbeem
Similarly, I asked for a series of images to be corrected (see Commons:Bots/Work_requests#Fix_author_name). I assume this is correct. --  Docu  at 02:19, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi Alf van Beem,

I was about to move about 400 ships from "Photographs by Alf van Beem" to "Ships photographed by Alf van Beem", but after about 100 I stopped as I noticed that you had moved some in the opposite direction. If it's a problem, I can undo the 100.

With my Best Wishes for 2013. --  Docu  at 17:07, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

BinnenschepenEdit

Vraagje. Tot op heden zie ik dat je meestal foto's van zeeschepen uploadt, maar mijn vraag is om bij het rondvaren door de haven ook eens wat meer aandacht te besteden aan de binnenvaart. Maar dan wel gelijk het verzoek om bij die schepen ook een foto te maken waarbij je duidelijk het Europanummer (ENI-nummer) kunt aflezen. Ik zoek me vaak mottig om dat achteraf bij binnenschepen weer terug te vinden. En als de naam er dan niet bijstaat is dat geen probleem, via dat nummer is die meestal wel te vinden op de site van De binnenvaart. Zo doe ik dat meestal, zie: Category:Companion (ship, 2009).

Der Weltkrig im BildEdit

Hi Rcbutcher, They deleted all the files that where nominated for deletion. The reason was this: Deleted: Unclear copyright status. Unless we have clear, explicit written/textual, tangible evidence indicating that these files are indeed freely licensed under a Commons compatible license, we cannot host them on Commons FASTILY 07:52, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

So i guess this means our arguments had no meaning or any significance. Can i conclude that any arguments whatsoever have no use at all if there is no clear, explicit written/textual, tangible evidence? does this means that we never have to answer whit the keep option anymore because it will not do any good? Regards, Alfvanbeem (talk) 07:35, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

No, keep trying and contributing. Wikipedia/Wikimedia takes a lot of patience. The big picture works very well even if in the small picture some silly things happen. In this case, I think most of those British images which have copyright expired are still available from Imperial War Museum (IWM) collection. Freedom ! Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 08:46, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Many thanks for the excellent car images that you upload to Wikimedia. However it would be a great assistance if you would provide more detail about the vehicle in your photograph, particularly the things that cannot be established from the photo like the precise model, year of manufacture, engine size etc. Yes, it is very true that an image of a rare car is much much nicer than no image at all but often it becomes important to be able to distinguish between cars and when many details are provided important distinctions can be made.

Images of cansEdit

Hello, Alfvanbeem. Could you consider giving a license to the cans of the images you're uploading? I am not familiar with the subject, and I can't read Dutch so I cannot research it either. You can do it via the {{3-D in PD|<Template or reason here>}} template. Thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 15:41, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Magog, I do not understand the question. As i look back to these uploads i see i have given them a licence. Did you mean i should categorize them? Regards, Alf Alfvanbeem (talk) 16:19, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

You haven't provided a license to the cans. Your photographs qualify as derivative works; if the cans themselves are not out of copyright, then we must delete the photographs. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 16:25, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Magog, If i follow the tree on https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Derivative_Works_Decision_Tree.svg, it is permanently installed in a public place (the museum Terug in de Tijd) and free of FOP. Than it should be ok or not? Regards, Alf

Panoramafreiheit refers to photographs of permanently fixed items, namely statues and buildings. Museums are not considered OK in most countries, including the Netherlands. So I don't believe so. However, if the cans are old enough, they may be in the public domain already. Also, we only have to worry about the part of the cans that has artwork on it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:09, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

OK, thanks for the info. The only thing i know about the museum is that the stuff they have expositioned is from 1900 - 1960's. So if you think some of them should be deleted, please go ahead. Regards, Alfvanbeem (talk) 17:16, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

This regards the creation of Category:Old Gold (cigarettes) to replace Category:Old Gold (cigarette).

Please use the {{move}} template to request a category move, or place non-controversial move requests (such as this one) at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands. These will (somewhat) preserve the history of the category, instead of eliminating it entirely. Thank you. Mindmatrix 16:29, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Hallo Alf,

Hallo G. van Gerven,
Ik heb dit gefotografeerd op de Verzamelbeurs te Nieuwegein. Het blik was in der daad te koop, maar ik weet niet hoe contact te krijgen met de verkoper, alleen dat zijn naam Han is en hij een woning in Amsterdam heeft.
In Maart zal er weer een verzamelbeurs in Nieuwegijn zijn en dan zal ik hem eea kunnen vragen, of als ik hem op een andere verzamelbeurs tegen kom.
Is dat ok?
Groetjes,
Alf

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

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 . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Hello, Alfvanbeem!

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.

Dry electrolytic capacitorEdit

Hallo Alfvanbeem, Du hast vor kurzem einige Fotos von "dry electrolytic capacitors" hochgeladen. Danke dafür, konnte eines gleich in der Historie von Aluminium Elektrolytkondensatoren einbauen. Eine Frage: Kannst Du auf Deinen Fotos die aufgedruckte Patent-Nummer erkennen? Ich schreibe grade einen Artikel über die Geschichte der Elkos und dieses Patent könnte die Beschreibung beeinflussen. Danke im Voraus für Deine Hilfe. Grüsse --Elcap (talk) 07:08, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
