Hello, Craigboy!

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.

File:Skylab illustration.jpgEdit

Hello Craigboy! You've recently overwritten this file with a downsampled version. At Commons, the highest possible resolution is always required, and there's no limitation of desk space or bandwidth (see the FAQ and Commons:Why we need high resolution media). An 8 mb images is not that large, and it's possible to download smaller versions with the "download" button above the image. We do upload downsampled version sometimes, but usually for images of 20 mb or more, and only as separate files, named something on the lines of "File:original image - downsampled.jpg" with a link back to the original image. Regards! -- Orionisttalk 11:40, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Both images are about the same quality, but the original is 5X larger in file size. When the original image is viewed at full size it is in very poor quality. The smaller image (2,000×1,705 px) it was replaced by had been cleaned up.--Craigboy (talk) 23:59, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Bigelow imagesEdit

Hi. An example deletion request that ended in deletion is Commons:Deletion requests/Image:SANY1606.jpg. It used this exact argument (and is where I got it from). I spoke to several folks on IRC regarding these, and the consensus (backing up my own thoughts) was that these are models/sculptures that are protected by copyright. If no other non-free image exists on a Wikipedia project, they could potentially be moved there, but for en.wiki, my home project, only the BA-2100 image could potentially have use there, since all others have images that were kindly provided by Bigelow themselves. Let me know if you have any more questions...I thought long and hard about this before nominating them. I would love to have more Bigelow images on Commons, but my first and foremost concern is keeping non-free images out of here. Huntster (t @ c) 03:35, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

The fact that it demonstrates something visually is irrelevant to its copyright status. Think, for example, of automobiles. It is fine to take a photo of a production car, because it serves a utilitarian purpose, even if they may incorporate many artistic elements. A model of said vehicle, however, would fall under copyright because it is merely intended to visually describe the actual vehicle. Huntster (t @ c) 04:07, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
I've already moved the BA-2100 image over to en.wiki. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bigelow_BA-2100_expandable_space_module.jpg. I would not recommend moving any others over at this time. In general, only one non-free image is acceptable per article, and each article has one. I understand the concern about proper configuration, but until we know for certain how the modules will be configured, I recommend leaving the Bigelow images in place. Huntster (t @ c) 05:27, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
There's already a non-free image there which effectively conveys the idea of how the complex might look (which, to be blunt, it still fairly up-in-the-air right now). These will not, especially after they are downsized to 350 or so pixels (backgrounds are too 'busy'). They'll still be on Flickr if we need them in the future. Huntster (t @ c) 09:36, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
I know, but I hold strictly to the concept of only one fair-use image per article (and none if a free image is available). Huntster (t @ c) 09:55, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Policy is for absolute minimal use of non-free material, which by necessity means one. An exemption is occasionally made for song articles, where they may have a cover illustration and short sample. Huntster (t @ c) 22:55, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Done. I'm still not thinking it's a good idea, but for now we'll let it stand. Reevaluate after a while. Huntster (t @ c) 12:38, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Image concernEdit

File:Nasa Docking System or internation Low Impact Docking System.png is described as being a work of NASA, but the website describes the design as a collaboration between all the international partners. Can you explain why you credited NASA with this? Otherwise, it cannot remain on Commons, since the other partners do not release works under a free license. Beyond that, as far as I can tell, this docking standard is not LIDS or the NASA Docking System...it is a universal docking system designed to accommodate all the international designs.

Also, whenever you upload a file with a NASA id, such as JSC2010-E-168906 or S99-05359, try to remember to use the {{NASA-image}} template, as that helps produce machine-readable information, and in the future may be useful for dynamically producing links to NASA image databases. Huntster (t @ c) 01:37, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Exact Duplicates and scaled down copiesEdit

Hi Craigboy, the reason we delete scaled down versions of images is that the wiki software automatically scales images, there is no use for scaled down versions.
The reason we delete exact duplicates (ie copies of exactly the same file) is that they are liable to end up with different descriptions, categorization etc - just unneeded work to keep them synchronised. Note that the nature of wiki software is that nothing is ever really deleted, everything can be reverted and restored - so no space is saved by deleting images - I think of 'deleting duplicates' as a simple merging operation.
We do not generally delete different edits or crops of the same image.
In relation to these two images, they were certainly not exact duplicates. One appears to be a white balance 'corrected' version of the other. We normally retain originals of derivative versions. --Tony Wills (talk) 06:29, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
I guess I misunderstood wikicommons deletion policy. Thank you for the explanation.--Craigboy (talk) 06:40, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, the reasoning is not self evident :-). Do I assume that the white balance correction was your work? I couldn't see that version on the NASA site, speaking of which the 'High Quality' source link from File:Carr i Pogue..jpg doesn't appear to go to the right image. --Tony Wills (talk) 06:52, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Ok, found the original full size TIFF image. They must have posted those other images before they corrected the white balance and posted the full TIFF image. --Tony Wills (talk) 07:24, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Re: DR and duplicatesEdit

DR = Deletion request, the Commons equivalent of Wikipedia's XfD. With regards to File:First Light.jpg, speedy deletion is for exact (or scaled down) duplicates only. As there is a slightly more substantial difference between the two images, the deletion should be discussed really. Like you said the crop is probably unintentional, but there may be a reason.--Nilfanion (talk) 08:30, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

It was apparently part of a slideshow presentation in 1997, I don't know whether the other slides have been uploaded. I expect given the bandwidth limitations at the time, the cropping and compression were very deliberate :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 00:19, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Edits like this are not productive. Its not a duplicate, and should not ever be speedy deleted as such. If you feel the file should be deleted, it needs to be discussed... so tag with {{delete}} and send to Commons:Deletion requests. Such files need discussion.--Nilfanion (talk) 23:36, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

But what purpose do these low quality and strangely cropped (there seems to be no intent behind any of the croppings) .gif images serve?--Craigboy (talk) 08:42, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

I think the intent is obvious - to high-light the people and ignore the staged backdrops. It could be done better and to a higher quality, but some of them have been used in a lot of places, so obviously sufficient for their needs. There is no advantage to Commons in deleting them, the best option IMHO is to mark each of the GIFs as {{superseded}} which will direct future editors of those articles to the superior images. --Tony Wills (talk) 12:18, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
The first three crops partially cut out a crew member. I can personally go to the other wikis and replace the GIF with the higher quality JPEG (if that can't be done automatically). The GIFs were used because at the time no higher quality version was available and they haven't been replaced because GIF isn't the best format for still images. --Craigboy (talk) 12:47, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

File:Tiangong-spacelabmod-computergraphics-orbit2011.ogvEdit

Hello! It was great to see your username in the deletion debate (which I am still annoyed about, why do people always throw such baseless claims these days?) but anyway, it's not that debate I came here for. I came here to say thank you for the excellent image of the layout, it was that image in the article that inspired me to make a 3D model, and it was from that image that I got structural information. After I finished it, I noticed there were a few coloring errors and maybe a few geometry errors (based on my pure novice skill at the modeling tools) but nothing seemed big enough to exclude it from helping the project in my humble opinion. Could you point out anything that you think is too majorly wrong with the model as-is? Cheers, Nesnad (talk) 17:18, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. In your model the the Orbital Module (OM) of Shenzhou looks as if it's part of Tiangong 1. Also if you need some reference images than I have a few saved if you want them.--Craigboy (talk) 17:50, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I noticed you took off the video but I don't see how any errors that can make it not good enough to be helpful to visualize the craft since a video from space is unavailable. Also, your comment about what is wrong "shenzhou looks as if it's part of Tiangong" wasn't clear enough for me to try to fix anything. Cheers, Nesnad (talk) 05:56, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
The basic shape is wrong. Here's a reference image.--Craigboy (talk) 19:12, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Call me stupid if you will, but although my geometry is a bit off, not sure how it is *so* wrong? here is a frame from my video and you can see that the coloring is off, and slightly too long in the back, but I fail to see how it is so substantially different than your reference image? Cheers, Nesnad (talk) 11:35, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
I circled the part of the above images to show you what I mean by the Orbital Module of Shenzhou look as if it's part of Tiangong 1. Also the re-entry module shape isn't right (I'm being very anal about that because there's a very important reason for its shape). And there isn't supposed to be a cylinder connecting the Orbital Modules to the re-entry module. After those three issues are fixed I'll be fine with it, thank you for your patience.--Craigboy (talk) 00:17, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
But they are connected in your image? I'm confused. Also it was hard to get the curved reentry shape in the modeler I'm using, I did make the end curved, but it ended up not quite looking the same, that could use work, I agree. It also looks like I got the colour scheme flipped, oops. I do agree this needs work, I will try to fix the reentry shape (not sure I can though) and redo the colour scheme, not sure why those little things are so big for you though? Nesnad (talk) 04:59, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Do you see anything difference between their Tiangong 1 and yours? I don't care about the color scheme.--Craigboy

Dude delete it if you want I dont really care. You just seem bored. Leebrandoncremer (talk) 05:24, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

It wasnt just you, I am giving up on Wiki, seriously I decided to get a life. Leebrandoncremer (talk)

Wow how bored do you have to be HAHA whatever. Seriously all you have to do in life is find pics to delete. Fuck you. -unsigned comment by Leebrandoncremer

Why do you keep acting like this? You're an accomplished author for which besides some of comments you've made here I hold a lot of respect for. You can't upload copyrighted images onto wikicommons, and you cannot claim an ESA created image as your own. Is something going on with you that's just made you pissed off at everyone?--Craigboy (talk) 23:16, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
I really dont care, I just find that you are quite pathetic that all you can do is find reasons to delete other peoples stuff. Its a relevant photo, but I dont care if you delete it. I am just over how feeble you people are on Wiki, I swear you are all so sad. The definition of nerd. Please do what you like
I wont respond anymore. I find you quite sad. Try going out side sometime and getting some sun and maybe meet a girl and move on from all this.-unsigned comment by Leebrandoncremer
I'm not looking for reasons to delete your stuff (which has consisted of two clear copyright violations). Legally you cannot claim an ESA image as your own, it doesn't matter how relevant the photo is. Nor could I use a picture you took, upload onto wikicommons and claim it as my own. I don't understand why you're taking this as a personnel insult and feel the need for retaliation.--Craigboy (talk) 00:29, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Stop messaging me its bordering on the obsessive.-unsigned comment by Leebrandoncremer


Craig, he got pissed when I deleted some of his images a few months back, and apparently he hasn't pulled himself out of that funk since. -mattbuck (Talk) 01:20, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

File:Unmanned resupply spacecraft comparison.pngEdit

This illustration would work much better as a Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG). Do you know if it was originally created in a vector format, or even better, do you have it in a vector format (EPS, DWG, DXF, etc.) as a master image? Other vector formats can be converted to SVG with moderate effort. —Quicksilver@ 14:44, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:ISS crew inside Dragon C2-circle.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 created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. 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.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.)

Can't reach me ?Edit

I thought it was a global ban.--Craigboy (talk) 04:08, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm pretty sure some people would like to ban me from using legit socks everywhere altogether and have me walk barefoot forever more. I still haven't got a straight answer from Elen (she is nice and we talk, but I can't edit after I complained to the ombudsman.) as to whether her ban on sock creation extends to thewik.net, or Russian, Japanese, and Belgian wikipedias. I do know precisely what the policy is naturally, you can't possibly pass a BRFA without a clue, but En.wiki is a strange place lately. Anyhow PALZ has more user rights on Russian wikipedia than Elen and I combined. If Elen thinks her sysop bit extends as far as Russia, I don't know who is going to break it to PALZ. I've tried numerous times to ban and unplug him, as his english user talkpage shows, but he's so much smarter than I am and just finds some way around it. I really don't know, and with this whole checkuser to try to work out who is actually controlling PALZ, well, the BRFA process is comparable to a RfA I think, because a bot flag is a measure of community trust, and if the BRFA can't establish who is in control of PALZ, and a checkuser can't work it out either, than I may have to provide DNA samples and take a lie detector test. One of which I'm willing to do. But I don't like talking about it, I'm too scared to find out the truth so I've been on the run instead, too scared to go home. I'm actually patching through by a trained carrier pigeon who is doing the typing because I know PALZ is vegetarian.
In the meantime, that legit sock everyone seems to blame me for is steaming full ahead, making gazillions of edits to Russian Japanese and a bunch of wiks I can't even remember. It's all in his global contribs, and PALZ, Bitty, and any other LEGIT socks are just as welcome as I am on all other servers. You know, like, until I get a fair trial by airstrike. Those drones really save money on lawyers. Americans are so efficient. Penyulap 21:04, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Hallo Craigboy, please don't upload pictures, that are here since years. The count of duplicates should not rise, apart from the additional work. Warm regards --Ras67 (talk) 15:56, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

I didn't think it was. Typically commons lets me know beforehand.--Craigboy (talk) 16:00, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

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

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Gemini 11Edit

Hi there. Take this as an opportunity to explain to both me and the rest of the people reading your talk page why you decided to scale up this image here and upload it the Commons here. I understand rotating it, but why on Earth did you size it up? What did you hope to gain? Did you expect to magic extra detail from thin air? Another user seems to have made the file even worse, but I can understand why he might have done it, if not sympathise. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 13:37, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Please see the fourth pillar of wikipedia. I didn't scale up the image. I uploaded it in its original resolution. I rotated the image to match the orientation of the image it was replacing. Also because it would be the correction orientation if you were sitting in the Gemini spacecraft. This orientation also looks better (at least in my opinion) and makes it easier for the reader to decipher what's going on. --Craigboy (talk) 00:59, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:NASA spacecrafts.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 created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. 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.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

Just to explain, this is a 'derivative work' that you made of a PD-NASA image, but the licensing you put on it doesn't actually give a license from you. Stating that "This file is in the public domain because it was solely created by NASA" is inaccurate, you own a copyright in your modifications to the image, and so you need to state a license for your modifications instead of restating the license for the original. Not that this should be deleted, not at all, you just need to fix it. Thanks. Revent (talk) 19:25, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
