nice gastropod imageEdit

Hello, your photo File:Triboniophorus graeffei - Chatswood West.jpg is very useful for wiki. I have put it in the article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athoracophoridae already. Feel free to upload more of them, you can also let me to know about your gastropod images. Thank you. Have a nice day. --Snek01 (talk) 13:25, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

File:Orange Bush Elvina Bay.jpgEdit

Your most recent change to the description of this file,

"English: Plant at Elvina Bay, Australia delete this file, incorrect identification"

confuses me. What is that you want to happen with this image and why?

If the problem is the name of the file -- if it is not an Orange Bush from Elvina Bay, you can put {{rename|newname|reason}} at the top of the file's text and an administrator will rename it to whatever you like. Or tell me, below, what you want to happen, and I'll see if it can be done.

Why not use {{rename|File:Unknown plant from Elvina Bay.jpg|It's not an Orange Bush}}? It's a pretty good image and I'll bet someone else will identify it. . . . . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talkcontribs) 10:27, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

File informationEdit

Hi Poyt448, I noticed you filled the "Permission" and "Other versions" fields with texts like "No", "OK", "Yes" etc. I'd like to ask you not to do that as this doesn't do anything but create unneeded fields in display. Only fill in fields if there is information for them. For example, if somebody else (or you) makes a different version of a file, you can link to it from Other_versions and it'll appear on the File-page. And when the field is empty it won't appear on the File-page as it's not needed. But if it's filled with "no", the field is forced to display because there is a value. See an example here. Thanks, –Krinkletalk 17:12, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Poyt448!

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.

Gmelina leaves forest floorEdit

Hi, I put your photo of Gmelina leaves on the forest floor in the Wikipedia article on plant litter, w:Litterfall. I shortened the caption a bit to just say the photo is from Barrington Tops National Park. I hope that's okay.--Brambleshire (talk) 03:38, 29 April 2012 (UTC) Thank you for using the photo. It's a fine article indeed. White Beech is a fairly uncommon to rare species, one of the best ways to identify it is the fallen leaves. It had a very high rate of leaf loss and new growth. cheers Poyt448 (talk) 02:51, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

OwlEdit

Hi, Re File:Powerful Owl - April 6 2009 Chatswood West edited..JPG | This is an interesting photograph. Can you confirm that it was taken at night or not. Please add this detail to the image description on Commons to explain the photograph better. It would be interesting to know what time of day it was photographed. Did you use flash photography? or is there another reason to explain the light reflection from the owl's eyes? How did you identify the owl in the dark? Snowmanradio (talk) 17:16, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Dear Snowmanradio,

Thank you for looking at the owl picture. The picture was taken at night, with a flash on a tripod. The owl is easily identified because of the large size, (Australia's largest owl species), and the distinctive high pitched "HOO HOO" double call of the same note. The photo was taken at 22:23 in the evening. The call is so loud, that it got me out of bed. And is subsequently the owl has woken me from sleep when they call from the TV aerial above. I wasn't sure if this photo was suitable for Wikipedia, and thought it would be deleted. Glad you like it.

kind regards Peter Poyt448 (talk) 00:58, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you!Edit
