Old imageEdit

Hello. While going through some old stuff of mine I noticed this: Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Paul Verlaine by Emile Cohl.jpg, to which you had added this note: "Deleted... Can be restored next January 1 [2009]." To be honest, I don't remember if this particular image is worth retrieving or not, but a number of others in Category:Émile Cohl seem so far to have survived and it might be worth taking a look. Thanks. - Mu (talk) 19:37, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

That was quick work. No Leonardo, to be sure, but not such a bad image after all. Many thanks! - Mu (talk) 22:00, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

File:Helleborus-viridis-DS-032.JPGEdit

Hi Davepape! Can you look at File:Helleborus-viridis-DS-032.JPG and delete it? It shows the wrong species. It is right under File:Helleborus-foetidus-DS-032.jpg. Thank you. --Danny Steaven (talk) 05:26, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

delete photoEdit

Can you just delete the photo? They already said no. You don't have to wait for seven days. --Kate432 (talk) 17:28, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Done. --dave pape (talk) 18:35, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Caroline Durieux illustrationEdit

Hello. I'd love for Caroline Durieux "Gumbo Ya-Ya" illustrations to be shown to be PD so I could upload more of them, but I've not yet found any confirmation. Your feedback is appreciated at Commons:Deletion requests/File:He Believes Everything.png. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 18:40, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

No source etc...Edit

Hello! I just noticed that you clean up in the no xxx categories. That is cool. I just wonder if you check if uploader has ben warned on his/her talkpage before deleting? That way uploader has a chance to fix the problem before deletion. --MGA73 (talk) 15:09, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

No, that's one thing I don't normally check - I expect the person tagging it to have done it (usually automatically via the JavaScript tools); or when an image is tagged as part of the upload process rather than by a person or bot, the big red warning box is there on the resulting page that the uploader sees. The main thing I always check is the file history, to make sure the tagging isn't due to vandalism of the description (which happens once in a while).
So yes, there may be a few cases where uploaders weren't informed - if there's a noticeable number of cases, perhaps a bot should be set up to handle it more quickly. Otherwise, given the two-month backlog in Category:Unknown, deleting images is much more likely to get uploaders' attention than a message on a talk page that they don't visit. (Not that it's a perfect solution either - although we can always undelete when somebody comes back with the needed info, some people will just give up in disgust.) --dave pape (talk) 14:54, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Having said all that - most tagging is done by regulars that I'd trust to do things correctly. I'll try to remember to check on the tagging done by people I don't recognize, to see if there is a problem. --dave pape (talk) 14:58, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

imagen File:Get_Back.JPGEdit

I am the author because in Word (program) create the image (sentences, the logo color and margins). Does this if it works? Thank you.--Zak Smith (talk) 03:46, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

File: Torso_Fragment.JPGEdit

Uh oh! Thanks for letting me know. I thought I had it figured out, but now realize I didn't. So, after doing some more research, seems like I can upload it to English Wikipedia under fair use, if I advocate for the fair use purposes it serves. (And include the fair use template.) Does this seem okay? Thanks again. Kpetrole (talk) 05:19, 25 November 2009 (UTC)Kpetrole

Update: I will be working hard over the next day or two to transfer the images to English Wikipedia under fair use. I did the Torso Fragment image already (props to the HelpChat people for helping me figure out what I needed to add). Feel free to take a look at that one to see if it's okay. And it currently says duplicate image to the one on wikimedia commons, but that one will eventually be deleted, right? Kpetrole (talk) 06:45, 25 November 2009 (UTC)Kpetrole

in the description of the picture Panthera tigris altaica 13 - Buffalo Zoo.jpg you wrote: Cubs Thyme and Warner, with their mother Sungari. but there are only visible two animals. Can you correct this? Thank you and Greetings Wladyslaw (talk) 08:38, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Satellite photosEdit

Hey Dave, there is currently a featured picture nomination of South America at en.wiki that I think could be made better. Your Antarctica image is wonderful, and I was wondering if you could help me out. If you wanted to create the image yourself, or if you wanted to send the c-program you wrote to create your image, it would be much appreciated. I simply would like this image to be the best it can be. Thanks for any help you are able to provide. Jujutacular (talk) 23:29, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you so much, that looks fantastic. I made a comment at the nomination page. Jujutacular (talk) 17:06, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

We need your help at the Wikiproject medicineEdit

Rod of asclepius.png

Hello, Sorry for spaming your talk page, but this is very important. On the behalf of the Wikiproject medicine at the en.wikipedia, I am inviting you to be a part of the discussion going on the project's talk page about Patient images, The discussion started after I obtained a permission to more than 23000 dermatology related images, and about 1500 radiology images. As some editors of the Wikiproject medicine have some concerns regarding the policy of using patient images on wikipedia, and regarding patient consents. Also they believe that common's policy is not so clear regarding the issue. And since you are the experts please join us at this very important discussion -- MaenK.A.Talk 14:20, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Blue Marble rotatingEdit

Hi Dave,

I'd like to create an image similar to File:Blue_Marble_rotating_1024x1024.ogg, except rotating in the opposite direction and overlaying a KML track. Do you have any suggestions for how one would go about this? Did you use any warping software, or did you use images which were already properly projected? What was your source? 173.170.157.188 14:14, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

The source was the Blue Marble composite [1], which is in a simple rectangular projection. I rendered the frames using my own custom OpenGL code to apply the image to a sphere - I'm sure there are many simpler ways using packaged software, I only did it with my own code because it's the way I've done it for a couple decades. For someone starting from scratch, I would suggest just using whatever 3D animation package that you feel comfortable with - any of them should be able to render a sphere with a texture map applied, which is all you need for a spinning earth. --dave pape (talk) 04:37, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! 173.170.157.188 00:27, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi Dave, just letting you know about Commons:Deletion requests/Images uploaded by Gallerygal, since you had some contact with this user back in 2008 (but they seem to have not followed through on your recommendations). Please comment if you can. Dcoetzee (talk) 10:14, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

King Albert's Book revisitedEdit

Howdy. I was looking about and I saw that's you'd uploaded some of the pics from King Albert's Book. I had a dig through it and I think there are a few more pics in the public domain (PD-old-70 for the UK and PD-US-1923-abroad in the US). I made a list of the rest of the illustrations at en:User:Angusmclellan/KAB ills with my guesses. I don't want to step on your toes if you are planning on revisiting this. If you aren't, please say, otherwise I'll assume you have plans for this and leave it alone. Whatever you're planning - or not - here, I will upload the not-yet-PD-old-70 ones on enwp, where PD-US-1923-abroad on its own is acceptable, and tag them with the move-to-Commons year. Cheers, Angus McLellan (Talk) 10:49, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

File Tagging File:Lady of Shalott edmo.jpgEdit

Hi, I'm not really interested, so delete if you must. The file was copied across from Wikipedia where it doesn't seem to have any permission issues, so go figure. cheers Androstachys (talk) 13:40, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Joanne siegel.jpg DeletionEdit

Hello Davepape. I noticed that one of the images I uploaded a few months back was deleted by you. I'm just wondering why it was deleted and why I wasn't contacted and given some chance to supply what was needed. I have observed this in the logs; I just do not know how to comprehend it "No permission since 10 March 2011". Niluop (talk) 22:29, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Nevermind. I have more information now that was posted to my discussion page. I just wasn't aware of it. Niluop (talk) 22:35, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

File:Yul Brynner as Chris Adams.jpgEdit

Wasn't a movie screenshot. Please, provide more convincing argumentation. -- George Serdechny 07:31, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

The image lacks correct copyright information. It's sourced to a flickr user who is not the author or copyright owner - the CC-BY license there is meaningless. The flickr page states that it came from MGM by way of the Wisconsin Film Festival, which appears correct, but there's no information on whether or where/when it was actually published prior to February 2000; without that, we can't just assume it's public domain. If the necessary copyright information is found, it can be brought up at Commons:Undeletion requests. --dave pape (talk) 15:06, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
You're joking, aren't you? How on the Earth we are supposed to find out where/when it was actually published prior to February 2000? -- George Serdechny 19:49, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Help with an imageEdit

Help! I added a somewhat older image of yours File:Memorial obelisk - Old North Bridge.jpg (2007) to the article on Concord Hymn but it's displaying very wrong. I see it as twisted 90 degrees, and somewhat stretched into the box. Any idea what happened? --Midnightdreary (talk) 14:29, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

It probably has something to do with the new automatic-rotation-based-on-EXIF feature that's been enabled. I'll look into it. --dave pape (talk) 14:07, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Technical assistance in filemoves for names that are taken by redirectsEdit

I'm texting you as a recently-active en-speaker Admin, 16 of my uploads were renamed three days ago in a series of multiple identical acts by one of our users, and I need to fix them back (given that the filenames which had existed prior to those acts were valid and that the renaming was invalid), but my filemove feature isn't helpful for this because all superseded filenames were automatically converted to respective redirect pages, which makes the restoration to them fail (you get a "The name you have specified exists"). Very kindly help. I messaged another Admin two or three days ago with this pressing request, strangely however no action has so far been taken and the files are still corrupt and I'm very very unhappy; if I'm granted the delete tool I can manage this by just kicking the redirs and retrieve my filenames as easy as editing anything else, but since I can't delete the redirs it's all about getting you repairing it. thank you 16 times.
