Brick-coloured TachinidEdit

Hi Hans,

Maybe the ID is wrong, I made it by visual comparison with the photos in Diptera.com, but this is a a large genus ... and family. Thanks for the contact, I'll try to talk to those people. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:40, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

e-mail?Edit

Hi Hans,

It seems like you do not have e-mail enabled(? - I thought admin users always had e-mail enabled - ?) I'd like to discuss an issue with you in private. If that is OK with you, could you please e-mail ping me at my user name dot gmail dot com. If you, for whatever reason do not want to reveal your e-mail address to me that is something I respect, and no offense will be taken. Cheers --Slaunger (talk) 15:53, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

This is an image I moved to Commons. If you think it is a potential candidate for featured or quality images, please feel free to nominate it. Only 1 image from this guy at Wikipedia...but at least its an excellent one. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:00, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

It is excellent for this species, but technically it is a bit lacking (mainly noise). I see what I can do. Thanks for telling me. Lycaon (talk) 16:45, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Sure. No problem. I wish there were more image of this quality and resolution on wikipedia sometimes. Cheers, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:26, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Cistus albidus (plant).jpgEdit

Hi, Lycaon!

I have two questions:

  • In what cases is correctly repeatedly to place an image nomination?
  • The rumpled flower is norm for this plant?

As a whole I like this composition, only bit small DOF.

With best regards,

--George Chernilevsky (talk) 14:37, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi George.
Renomination of a QI candidate is OK when it has not been assessed. If it was turned down (declined), it has to be improved before renomination.
About the flower: the wrinkling is normal for this species.

Ownership of QI candidateEdit

Hello, I have replied to your objection about the ownership of the image submitted by me to COM:QIC (Suurhusen church). Is that sufficient for you? If not: do you have a Flickr account? Then I could send you a Flickr mail from my Flickr account, the very same one used to originally upload the image to Flickr. Shall I send you the original RAW/NEF files used to produce the HDR image?

Flowers identificationEdit

Hi Lycaon,

I just came back from a trip to Kilimanjaro and have a large collection of flowers without id. Could you please help out? If possible could you also point me to some flower identifying website as well? --Muhammad (talk) 20:27, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

I will have a look. At a first glance, most of them come from a garden and are not wild (Dahlia, Chrysanthemum, Rose, Canna) and one is a weed (some amaranth I guess). I'll have a closer check soon. Cheers Lycaon (talk) 05:27, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
I have nominated the canna sp at wikipedia FPC but there is a request for more id, could you please have a look? Regarding the others, would a species id be possible? Onece you have id'd, could you please leave me a note on my talkpage? Thanks --Muhammad (talk) 15:20, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

QuestionEdit

I see that you're dealing with copyright of images, so I have two questions. 1. If we have a picture with public domain license in low resolution is it ok to replace it with the same image in better resolution which can be found on Internet, no matter who scanned it? 2. If I find an image with GNU license on Flickr, can I upload the modified version only, providing a link to original? Regards. --Lošmi (talk) 10:36, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Ouch I seem to have overlooked this. I usually try to keep to the simple copyright issues, cause I'm not a die-hard specialist ;-). I could try to answer your questions, but to be honest I'm not certain about either. So I will instead refer you to Commons_talk:Licensing or specifically to Michael Maggs who is a real specialist in these matters. Regards. Lycaon (talk) 09:31, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Mediation?Edit

Hi Hans, seems like you are leaving soon for an extended period. Are you heading for a new exotic location, on the eternal quest for new insights and new good photos ;-). Anyway just wanted to drop a note saying that it would be interesting to hear if you have made any thoughts following the mediation proposal put forward by Durova at COM:AN/UP? --Slaunger (talk) 23:32, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi again Hans. I see you have been active here since my post. I do not very easily get annoyed at other users, but I must admit that I am beginning to be slightly irritated that you have chosen not to respond at all to this message on your talk page. As a minimum, you could write, that "No, I have not done any further thoughts about this", or "Well, I did think about it, but I do not think there is anything more to add.", or "I will not respond because that is the best strategy for just making this issue go away", or "I will not waste my time on this, it is a non-issue and i have better things to do" or "Other admins are taking care of this, I should stay out to not inflame further dispoutes" or whatever... For instance, one thought I have had is that you might think I am just a pain in a specific body part normally used for sitting onSmile. It is all speculations though as I have no idea. Considering the many fruitful and interesting interactions (well for me at least) I perceive we have had in the past, I would really, really like you to put some kind of response slightly higher up on your job queue. Best wishes, --Slaunger (talk) 21:49, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
One question first, Kim. Did you get my 22/06/2009 mail? Lycaon (talk) 05:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Your statement "I will not waste my time on this, it is a non-issue and I have better things to do" may come closest to the reality. Commons is about trying to provide good content for other wikimedia projects and not about quarrelling, insulting and bickering. I already regret putting up that message at COM:AN/UP, where Durova is making a mountain out of an molehill. I may have exaggerated with the original two years of harassment comment, but that was my perception at that time. If you received my mail you know how I think about the whole issue and I'd rather drop it here and now. I do appreciate the concern that you and some others have shown though. Lycaon (talk) 07:22, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Hi Hans, No, I never received an e-mail from you? Would you be so kind to resend it? Anyway, thank you for giving some insights in your thoughts about this. --Slaunger (talk) 09:19, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
I'll resend as soon as I am home. I'm surprised you didn't get as I didn't see a bounce report. Lycaon (talk) 09:22, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I am surprised as well. I just double-checked my spam mails and it was not hidden there either. As you may understand the fact that I never received a reply did not help on my perception of the situation either... --Slaunger (talk) 09:49, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Image renameEdit

Good evening Lycaon (or whatever time it is that you read this). Aside from my time at FP, over the past few months I've been helping to clear the backlog over at Image Renaming. While working through the files there, I came across this picture, one of a set that had been nominated to be renamed, and rejected due to lack of trusted user status. The name seemed rather generic, so I figured that if it was going to be renamed, it should have a more descriptive title, and for that matter, a description. I went to the history, intending to ask the renamer if they knew anything else about the picture that I could add to it, or if they could contact the author (whose language I do not speak) for more information. Imagine my surprise when I saw your name! I thought that Administrators would automatically have rename rights, but that's beside the point.

As far as I can make out (due to limited access to the internet at work) the picture features Agatha of Sicily, at the Santa Gadea church; though I'm still trying to find out what (or where)'Illereichen' is. I am going to attempt to find out more so I can add to the description and give the set a more meaningful title, so, in the meantime, I hope you will not mind if I remove your rename tags. If you know anything more about the subject, or can talk to the photographer for me, I would be much obliged.

Yours,

Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 11:04, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

It is part of a misnamed set. Slobot touched the file after me and before the renamebot, which stopped the process (last edit has to be by an admin or trusted). It is from a St Agatha church in Illerrieden in Baden-Würtemberg, Germany (see category). Don't worry I did my research. Lycaon (talk) 14:07, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Good thing I decided to wait for your response before doing anything rash. I will still add to the description when I get the chance, simply to make the pictures more useful. Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 12:59, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

GeocodingEdit

Basically, two points:

  • There are classes of images explicitly exempted from geocoding: Your language didn't exempt these from having to say why they were exempted, which creates an awful lot of garbage on the description pages.
  • Even for things not in the automatically exempt category, a description page should contain relevant material. It's hard to see a statement about why it isn't geocoded being a useful contribution to the description page, though I could see a note on the image's talk page.

Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:08, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but: we're talking about VI's, not just any image but a tiny fraction of all images on Commons. This makes it easier an unambiguous. There is a geocoding statement required, whether this is in the form of coordinates (in most cases) or in the form of an exemption statement, for which we can be quite lenient as long as it is properly explained. Then there won't be long discussions any more and for a valuable image there can't be too much info on the description page. Lycaon (talk) 18:19, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but VI cannot hurt the usability of the image description page, and including off-topic discussion does that. If you want to suggest it be put on the image talk page (and preferably exclude the default categories from this requirement), then I could get behind you. Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:49, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I agree a statement of why it does not need geocoding would be appropriate on the talk page - it is not information about the image, but information about information (or lack there of) on the image page (ie meta information). --Tony Wills (talk) 21:21, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
And then a link to the talk page?? You people really want to make it needlessly complicated. And then it will start all over with requests why an image has no need for geolocation and the the discussion starts again for all those borderline cases. Just do the sensible thing and put it on the description. E.g. knowing that geolocation is approximate or absent because of rarity/protection of a plant is very relevant information and not meta-sub-info stuff!! Lycaon (talk) 21:27, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Have added category:Location not applicable which seems to be the nearest we've got (maybe create a category for location withheld if there are going to be a lot of them?). There is nothing requiring a reason for non geo-location in the VI criteria, just a requirement for "coarse location". --Tony Wills (talk) 21:41, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Yep I noticed the recat. Made me drop my opposition. What I don't get though is the fear of extra info on the description page. Things like picture taken in the lab, or picture taken in a private home do add to the value of an image and stop people from asking irrelevant questions. This phrases are akin to giving location info. Just imagine a picture of one of my Amphipods without the lab statement. The first reviewer that comes around states oppose cause not geocoded. A simple short sentence can avoid that. So, why not? Lycaon (talk) 21:56, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

A pack of misnamed and micategorized files (by a bot ?)Edit

Hello Lycaon,
May I ask you an advice (and perhaps some help)? There are a lot of misnamed and micategorized files in Category:Olea europaea subsp. europaea, e.g. File:Starr 071224-0642 Olea europaea subsp. europaea.jpg (in fact a blurry image of a false Eiffel tower in Las Vegas...). What can be done? Thanks in advance for your answer, --Myrabella (talk) 10:21, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Hmmm. This is not the first time that Starr images get a wrong category. I will recategorize those that don't belong. Thanks for telling. Lycaon (talk) 10:29, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your immediate answer! I bring your attention to the fact that these files contain the sub-species name in their own name so perhaps a recategorization won't be enough. Because of their name, they will continue to appear in search results, won't they? --Myrabella (talk) 10:47, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

CommentEdit

I was just wondering. I saw you typed in a flickrpass for this image on Asta's behalf:

The image is by Kenny Muir. I know he licensed some of his photos as cc by 2.0 in 2006 since Sandstein typed in a flickpass for this old photo he uploaded: File:Jokulsarlon lake, Iceland.jpg I had contacted Muir about it (to see if Muir would change the license from ARR) and he never replied....to even protest that the photo was licensed with an unfree Non-commercial restriction. So, it was likely licensed freely.

My question is if Asta was a trusted user, would typing in a flickr pass for this other 2006 photo uploaded by him from Muir's account be OK...or not?

What do you think? Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 01:35, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

I think I made a mistake there. Thanks for noticing. We may eventually give User Asta the benefit of the doubt but first (s)he will have to be contacted. I reversed my edit. Lycaon (talk) 19:16, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

TranslationEdit

As a biologist I am hoping that you can translate "anteroventral seta on the mid tibia" for me. See http://www.diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=23343 in relation to File:Undentified Fly 9820.jpg. Noodle snacks (talk) 06:51, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

pd-ineligibleEdit

Hi. I was wondering if you could shed some light onto the edit you made to File:Smsi logo.png‎, as far as changing it to {{pd-ineligible}}. If you look at what I wrote on the uploader's talk page, could you explain to me how a logo such as this qualifies as pd-ineligible? I'm pretty new to Commons, so I could be wrong in my thoughts, but this is a straightforward copyrighted logo, no? Killiondude (talk) 07:11, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

The logo only exists of text, which makes it pd ineligible. I might also have used: {{PD-textlogo}}. regards. Lycaon (talk) 07:16, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for responding and giving that link, I appreciate it. I've been watcing Special:NewFiles recently, and tagging a lot of logos as copyvios. I'm glad you pointed that out to me. :-) Killiondude (talk) 07:37, 17 July 2009 (UTC)


Lycaon,
in case you aren't already off to wiki-break, couldn't you shortly explain your halo comment on Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Rainbow Falls in GGP.jpg as asked by Mila? Even in full-res I couldn't see anything what I deem a halo, but I've to admit that I know halos only from x-ray/CT images. Thanks and happy holiday. --Túrelio (talk) 12:43, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

File:Peilican.jpgEdit

Thank you for making the suggestion to rename the above file due to a spelling error in the filename. There is actually a different version of the file in my gallery. File:Pelican-pink-backed.jpg, so perhaps I should request a delete of the orginal [mispelled file], rather than a rename? I am still new to the commons, and am trying to familiarise myself with the way things work here.

GTSYEdit

Hans! Welcome back! Maedin\talk 12:14, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

GTSY2! The trip was very fine save for a car accident (no one injured) and a stolen wallet. Beautiful country and friendly people. The images are a bit less successful because of difficult shooting circumstances (almost daily 100% humidity, high temperatures, shooting from boats and under low light conditions) so don't expect FP candidates ;-), yet some interesting snaps on their way.
@Maedin, sorry to hear about your interrupted hike. Are you OK now?
Lycaon (talk) 20:22, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
So glad to hear you had a good time, though shame about the wallet and the accident. I've read some fantastic things about the Costa Rican reserves and national parks; apparently they have one of the best systems in the world and dedicate a huge portion of their land to protection. I'd certainly love to go there some day, and look forward to seeing some of your pictures. In fact, although I haven't looked, I could bet that Costa Rica is sparsely covered on Wikipedia and I'd like to write some articles on the area, so I'll keep an eye on your uploads and see if anything inspires me, ;-)
I'm getting better, definitely, though still not 100% and I have another week off work. I was gutted to have to interrupt my hike, though I did at least have eight straight days of fantastic hiking weather. I managed to travel 40km, which I suppose isn't too bad considering that it was all uphill and downhill! At least the time off work has given me the opportunity to go for adminship at Wikipedia; I don't think I'd have gone for it if I had the pressure of work to think about at the same time! Still not sure what the outcome will be, but I have my fingers crossed and am trying to be relaxed about it, ;-)
Great to have you back, so pleased that you had a great time! Maedin\talk 07:31, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Image:Papio ursinus.jpgEdit

Hi! Sorry for bothering. I just happened to come across this photo you had uploaded. I'm afraid the monkey depicted doesn't belong to the Papio ursinus (Chacma Baboon) species, but rather the Papio cynocephalus (Yellow Baboon) which is easy to prove: Chacma Baboons and other species of the genus don't live in Malawi, only Yellow Baboons do. Not to mention the obvious sign of the yellowish coloured pelage, while Chacma Baboons are much darker, brownish and blackish. I think the image should be renamed, if it's possible. --Mathae (talk) 17:27, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

That can be done. Thanks for telling me. Any day soon I'll make the corrections. Regards. Lycaon (talk) 21:14, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! --Mathae (talk) 23:13, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

QI candidatesEdit

Welcome back :-). I see you've been a bit further abroad than usual :-). I am impressed with a 500mm focal length lens and I sympathise with the difficult shooting conditions! But I do wonder whether those images need a bit of cropping (large areas of blurred forest, small area of bird :-).
PS Have you thought of adding something like {{Photo Information}} to your images, most just duplicates EXIF info (so I would leave those blank) but you can add info about the lens model, the flash unit (if any), and what sort of support was used (eg freehand, tripod etc), and other notes (eg from a rocking boat ;-))
PPS Do you know that all your edits are marked "m" ? I'm sure you must do some edits that aren't minor :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 11:55, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
PPPS I have recently decided that I will upload the full, unedited version of my photos, then my best edit over top. That way better editors can have something to work from (although I expect that they may prefer RAW files :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 11:58, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

I understand what you're saying Tony. I actually made two version of those three files, they each have a cropped counterpart for taxobox use, yet they are only 1024×768 in size (see VI noms). So for QI I'd rather leave them uncropped. Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 12:23, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
PS's: I'll look into the template, my contributions are mostly minor (I untag when I create a new file/lemma if I don't forget), and your last comment looks like an interesting idea. Lycaon (talk) 12:23, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
I just looked at your upload gallery, yes I see those other versions. You could probably crop to 1600x1250 or so and get something just acceptable in size for QI (for people who find that important ;-), good luck getting the full size ones through :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 12:34, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

DenoiseEdit

I have seen that you denoised one of my images. If you tell me how to do it with gimp, I might be able to do it myself in the future. =) Best regards -Korall (talk) 22:20, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd love to, but unfortunately I use commercial stuff (Corel Paint Shop Pro with Neat Image). Lycaon (talk) 09:37, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Try playing with the values of the plug-ins. The defaults for these are intended for an average and well, my plan was to one day start with the smallest values possible and work my way up on a few noisy images to see 1)if the plug-in works and 2)start to get some experience with it which should lead eventually to that kind of knowledge where I could look at the image and just know about what settings it would need to improve it.
My theory is that they use the same mathematical transformations, all of these applications. It is the way that the application accepts the input (the GUI) that differs. In truth, whoever first started to denoise with PaintShopPro started the way I suggested and shared this knowledge either in a classroom or in a book/magazine or in an online how-to and even Lycaon had to use the plug-in often to get a feel for how to make it work.
I think that the default settings for this plug-in that comes with GIMP are simply set too high and are too destructive. I also acknowledge the fact that I haven't tried to use this plug-in for several years now. So, the only thing I really know is what I shared with you in previous paragraph here, my plan.... -- (sorry Lycaon, I was only lightly trolling...) carol (talk) 10:00, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

May I askEdit

Why the revert? I don't want to edit war with you, but a file page is supposed to follow a convenient format. You do not reserve ownership of the page so I politely ask you to revert.ZooFari 16:24, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for inquiring. My 1300+ uploaded photo's use the same convenient format which uses no exotic custom templates. I don't plan to change the lay-out. Thanks. Lycaon (talk) 17:01, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Well the only thing that bothered me is the placement of the coordinates, but never mind, those are too many files :) ZooFari 14:11, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Opinions/comments are unwantedEdit

Nice thumbnails of hummingbirds at QI. I was thinking about a /Promotion and then I thought screw that and didn't.

I am here wasting electrons and public disc-space at your talk page to complain about the local hummingbirds here. There was one gruffing just outside of the window here. I have a difficult time onomatopoeia-ing the sound that these birds make -- gruffing seems to be reasonable for this -- their noise doesn't match their size or visual character in my opinion. Well, back to the point....

I grabbed my camera, thinking that I might be able to get the sound file from a movie (even if the camera is making broken images) made while the bird was chirping gruffing and it was as if the damn thing was watching me and quit as soon as I was ready to record it.

In truth, I have little evidence that my last few months photographing in my hometown was not being interferred with by posers -- here, I have a semi-domesticated wildlife that seems to know enough to know when not to pose.

Next time: crows who apparently become friends with the more generous of the subdivision inhabitants within their range....

Lesson learned too late: if you take some awesome photographs real quickly with another persons camera, don't put them online until you are done playing with the borrowed camera. -- carol
Hi Carol. Real cameras are not always a bonanza. Circumstances (and luck) are even more important. Thirty days and 3000+ shots in a hot and humid (close to 100% every day) climate yield only a handful of pretty pictures. Lucky you that you can enjoy the hummingbirds outside your window. I occasionally see a blackbird here or a sparrow... Lycaon (talk) 13:49, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Conflict ?Edit

Possible, it is personal conflict. Kallerna's voting is very similar to personal hostility. It is inadmissible in Commons and very incorrect for an administrator. Same was earlier two times. At that time Kallerna has received the polite remark from other users.

Possibly, the reason that I have rejected a few Kallerna's nominations. However I always support its good works. I am surprised by such relation, however I concern Kallerna friendly.

VoteEdit

Hoi Lycaon,

Ik waardeer dat je de tijd genomen hebt om te stemmen, ik weet dat het verzoek voor een herbevesting raar is maar het is zeker geen zoeken naar aandacht.

Sinds gisteren zat ik met het idee om te stoppen omdat ik al een tijdje het gevoel heb dat ik teveel fouten maakt en daardoor andere admins te veel aan het werk zet. Toen ik aangaf op IRC dat ik wou stoppen als admin kwam iemand met het idee om een rfa te doen om te kijken of er nog voldoende vertrouwen is en daarop te beslissen om te stoppen of niet, het liefst had ik persoonlijk alles in stilte laten verlopen en nu geedit als een gewone gebruiker.

En ja ik weet iedereen maakt fouten, we zijn allemaal mensen en alleen mensen die zeggen dat ze geen fouten maken zijn fout maar het is een verschil tussen een foutje maken en teveel fouten maken, en ik vind persoonlijk dat ik over dat laatste ben heen gegaan.

Groetjes, Huib talk 17:56, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

File:Puerto Banús Dusk Panorama, Andalucia, Spain - Sept 2009.jpgEdit

Hi Lycaon, can you be more specific about the stitching error? I looked and couldn't see anything. The boat on the right is a little blurry because it was moving. Thanks, :) Maedin\talk 17:27, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

I've indicated the two most noticeable stitch faults with numbers 1 and 2 (to be removed after viewing). A few others are so minor as to be negligible. The movement of some of the boats (the rightmost one specifically) at the other hand is rather more disturbing than those stitch errors. A crop might fix that. Lycaon (talk) 18:24, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, Hans, for taking the time. I spoke to Diliff about the errors and he'll keep it in mind for a future upload, but might not be able to correct them. Cheers, Maedin\talk 17:42, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Your revertEdit

Hi!

Any thoughts on why you reverted my (arguably uncontroversial) addition to the FPC rules? Small changes in that vein are being done all the time without voting on them, such as the aforementioned "Well documented" criterion, or even the whole section "Artworks, illustrations, and historical documents" for that matter...

Cheers, JovanCormac 18:05, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Yep. No discussion → no consensus (viz. [1]). Lycaon (talk) 18:14, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Ok, but only acceptable if that principle (no rule change w/o consensus) is being enforced consistently (cf. [2], the discussion here featured everything but consensus). -- JovanCormac 19:48, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

F-16 VICEdit

You see, the problem is than when I had nominated a different picture for VI some time ago, it was rejected by Yann (see here), because the scope was not exactly the same as the category (even though it was, just a different word was used to make it more precise - and thus a bit narrower). This time scope=category and it's wrong again. Your oppose is correct, of course, as there really are two SDTs, but then what should the scope be? [[:Category:Solo Display Team|F-16 Solo Display Team]]? Airwolf (talk) 08:13, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Hmmm, tightrope walking between narrow scope and a scope not fitting the contents ;-). I'd go for F-16 Solo Display Team as a scope and see what happens (I would tend to support that, but from monday I will be at sea for three weeks...). Cheers. Lycaon (talk) 08:23, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
And how about splitting? I mean, creating two categories, one for the F-16, one for the PC-7 (with one picture). Airwolf (talk) 08:37, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
Why not? One may envision more pictures to populate this two cats in the future. Lycaon (talk) 08:42, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Quercus coccifera flowers misidentifiedEdit

The picture you have loaded labeled Quercus coccifera is something else. If I knew what it was, I'd rename it. Please see the discussion to that page to see what the flowers really look like. I think you must have a holly or some other look-alike plant. Brillig (talk) 04:33, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Arghh!! You are so right. How embarrassing. It is of course a Mediterranean Buckthorn (Rhamnus alaternus). I will fix this ASAP. Thanks a lot for noticing. Lycaon (talk) 08:45, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Oh, good. Now I can stop trying to figure out what to do about it. Cheers! Brillig (talk) 15:17, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
