Old railway picturesEdit

Many of your recent uploads have an high resolution version which we might as well have. If you use Magnus' tool, you will get the high resolution version. (Or you can do it by hand by selecting the "more sizes" link at Geograph - you are logged in to Geograph aren't you?) — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 16:49, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. The "More Sizes" link wassn't obvious on my display,being pretty well off the screen to the right. My brain is hurting. I've spent the morning trying to find an efficient way of working with the necessary cross checks to avoid errors. Clearly we dont want to have duplicate images. I must say some of the images at maximum size appear to be a bit grainy Chevin (talk) 13:27, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

File:En-kedleston.oggEdit

In this file you pronounce 'Kedleston' with a distinct /-les-/. Could you please state your source for this pronunciation? (The Oxford guide to the pronunciation of place names has /-lst-/) Thanks, Boles Shikmim (talk) 00:50, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

It's the way I and everyone I know has pronounced it for the last seventy-odd years Chevin (talk) 11:00, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

PS: I've just discovered John Maidment's Blog Chevin (talk) 11:51, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

PPS: Do you mean the BBC Pronouncing Dictionary of British Names wich is published by the OUP? Chevin (talk) 12:42, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, this is the book I ment. But I uppose local pronunciation is a better reference than a dictionary. Thanks for the link! Boles Shikmim (talk) 07:05, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Monmouth Troy imageEdit

Conversation is brewing at File talk:Monmouth Troy Station 2028361 1dd6938f.jpg on what should be done with the correct image. I have a brief explanation of what is going on at the bottom of my talk page (follow the link in my signature) because everything is getting a bit messy with edits everywhere.

File:Roxburgh station geograph-2328602-by-Ben-Brooksbank.jpgEdit

Something abnormal happened during my move of this file - the image has disappeared and I can't find any log of what has happened. I've asked assistance here. I've also downloaded a copy of the file and can re-upload it any time, but I am curious to learn what happened and how to resolve it properly, thus waiting. Sorry for inconvenience - never seen such a glitch before. Materialscientist (talk) 07:58, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

OK No problem. I wasn't expecting so quick a response anyway. :-) I hope Ben Brooksbank hasnt made any other changes. I dont want to go through and check all 3400 of them Chevin (talk) 08:52, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
This seems to be a rare wikimedia software bug. I have no idea when it will be brought up to the right person at the wikimedia foundation, and thus uploaded a copy into File:St Boswells station geograph-2328602 by-Ben-Brooksbank.jpg. If something bad happens, like Ben Brooksbank decides to correct information in thousands of images on geograph.org.uk, then do not rush to correct this manually on wikimedia commons - ask help and someone will write an automated script/bot for this task. Cheers. Materialscientist (talk) 05:17, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks Chevin (talk) 12:23, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Hey Chevin, as a contributor of pronunciation audio samples, please share your opinion on the creation of a gadget guiding through the whole process (recording, uploading and inclusion) and, provided that you’ll attend Wikimania, please feel invited showing your interest in a proposal for a presentation that will cover the gadget for 5-15 minutes (depending on the audience).

Thanks for uploading File:Weymouth Station geograph-4069601-by-Ben-Brooksbank.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.
