Image:Turkey.Konya007.jpgEdit

I appreciate your effort to improve the original image. But I'm afraid that your version doesn't resemble the clock as it stands in the museum. The image is just too bright. You have to keep in mind that the interior of the Mevlana museum is rather dark. My photo was made with flashlight and renders the exact colors. I admit the sign on the wall could have been filtered out by me. But you're always free to give it another try. JoJan 15:52, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm afraid I sacrificed faithfully rendering the lighting in your beautiful original photo for a purpose. I was trying to bring out the clock's details so I could use the picture in the article Wikipedia:Longcase clock. In the original, you can barely see the clock's face. I agree, it does look garish. I uploaded another version. It still looks like it's floodlighted, but the colors are a little more realistic. --Chetvorno 11:54, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Category:Animated SVGEdit

You can upload your animated SVG on commons, even if Wikipedia can't display them, that can allow (wiki)graphists to learn more about Animated SVG (which display fine when look directly on the true url , ex. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1b/Animate_sbs.svg_tutorial.svg ), and encourage to allow SVG animation directly on wikipedia. 19:01, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Mignon 4 typewriterEdit

Thank you for correcting info in Image:Maszyna.do.pisania.XIXw.jpg.

There is small one question regarding this typewriter: you can see three buttons here, but on Image:Maszyna.do.pisania.XIXw.jpg there are only two...

Best regards,

I see, you're right. Your machine must be a Mignon 3, not Mignon 4. From The Virtual Typewriter Museum, 'The only difference between the Mignon 3 and 4 was the addition of a backspace key to the right of the mechanism.' I changed the image description. --Chetvorno 19:45, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Home recording v/s dictation machineEdit

The machine shown at Image:PhonoCylinderHomeRecord.jpg is a home phonograph with recording head attachment, not uncommon at the era, and not the same as the dictation machines of the era, which had additional machinery, for example enabling stenographers to pause or replay sections of a recording. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 01:54, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Deleted this image as a duplicate, no worries. Please just use {{duplicate}} for such cases in future. -mattbuck (Talk) 23:55, 28 June 2008 (UTC)


You're now a filemoverEdit

Hi Chetvorno, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, like InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • For guideline when to rename a file, please see Commons:File renaming and Commons:File naming.

Your pictures about negative differential resistanceEdit

I have placed your two pictures about negative differential resistance at the top of Circuit idea story about negative differential resistance as they look very well; I like them. I have only made some corrections in CCNR image. If you have something against, let me know and I will remove them. Circuit-fantasist (talk) 22:22, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

I think its a little misleading to say the current controlled graph looks like a neon lamp characteristic. The neon lamp has a much flatter curve below the breakdown voltage V2 and a much sharper falloff of voltage above it. I added the statement that the voltage controlled graph looks like a tunnel diode curve because it happened to come out very close to an actual tunnel diode curve, not just to give an example. --Chetvorno (talk) 06:10, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

File:Electrical Experimenter Aug 1916 pg228.png page moveEdit

Your page move of File:Electrical Experimenter Aug 1916 pg228.png was not the best way to create a cropped image for the De Forest advertisement. You should have just created a new page named Audion vacuum tube advertisement.png. The Clapp-Eastman advertisement is lost. I have asked on Commons:Village_pump#Unusual_Page_Move for assistance on correcting this. -- Swtpc6800 (talk) 06:57, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes, this was a very bad move. The cropped version should have been uploaded as a seperate file, and the original page left alone, with the original correct name. Please study the guidelines for renaming files {and associated talk page} and understand the value of not moving/renaming files unless really necessary. Also large modifications to existing files should almost aways be uploaded as seperate files. In this case the original file is a record of the complete printed page and is part of a set of images of the publication and should not have been over written with something different. --Tony Wills (talk) 07:52, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm really sorry; I should have known better. I salvaged a copy of the original file and uploaded it to File:Electrical Experimenter Aug 1916 pg 228.png. Hope this will help undo some of the damage. --Chetvorno (talk) 10:30, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Broadcasting_a_radio_play_at_NBC_studio.jpgEdit

Hello! The date listed on the image (1907) seems a bit off, because the first commercial broadcast station (KDKA) went live in 1930. Unless there is time-travel involved, I'm not sure how they did it. :) — Safety Cap (talk) 01:49, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks so much for catching that; I should have noticed that little anachronism. You really uncovered a mystery, though. The source I got the picture from, an encyclopedia on Google Books, lists a publication date of 1907, and it's title page is stamped "Harvard Library 1908". Yet the text has references to dates up to 1931!!!! It was obviously written after that date. You must have been right about the time travel.
BTW, didn't KDKA begin broadcasting in 1919, not 1930?--Chetvorno (talk) 05:06, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
