Image:Map of Streams in Lycoming and Sullivan Counties Pennsylvania.png deletionEdit

I deleted this, but for next time, you know that you can just upload the accurate map over the top of the old one, right? Just use the same filename. As long as your account is more than 4 days old, you can do it. You will get an upload warning but ignore it, since you're obviously intending to replace the old image. Just a tip. pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:53, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

That's ok, it's no trouble :) Sometimes users don't realise they can upload over existing images, that's all. If the name is wrong then that's no trouble at all to be deleted. pfctdayelise (translate?) 23:24, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Photo of StrasbourgEdit

Hello,

I am writing to you in regards to the panoramic photo of Strasbourg. It is a great photo and I would like to use it on a website (www.britishtours.com). Would you permit this? We would of course credit you.

Many kind regards,

Hi. Your maps of Townships of NC are awesome. Do U have one of Blount County, TN w/ the CDP's as in your example of Transylvania NC? 71.56.55.35 05:09, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

I will work on it. See here [1] for how I make the maps. Thanks for asking, Ruhrfisch 03:13, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

GO AND take a look at your new Category. The upper left side name is RED. This means that is needs a link, no one will see this subcategory. I went through 5000 uncategorized categories over the past three days and placed hundreds of Maps in their appropriate state or country.

Locator map TemplatesEdit

HI, I put them in their own category because they were hidden in the main Category. I thought if people were looking for locator maps to add a city or a county, they would find them easier that way. There shouldn't really be any images in the Maps of Category only name links to more specific galleries or categories. What would you suggest? There are two of us right now, cleaning up ht eMaps WayneRay 14:25, 6 November 2007 (UTC)WayneRay

Licensing for Locator MapsEdit

I also replied on Kaldari's Wikipedia talk page

Hi Ruhrfisch, I'm writing to ask if you would consider licensing your locator maps as public domain rather than GFDL/cc-by-sa. There are several reasons this would be preferable. First of all, there is a convention of making generic unlabeled maps ("locator maps") public domain in Wikipedia as it ensures there are no re-licensing issues with subsequent uses and modifications of those maps. Secondly, it is unlikely that your modifications of the census bureau's map constitute enough "creative effort" to justify any relicensing (as you merely cropped the images and adjusted the colors). Thus it would be debatable whether or not your images are in fact public domain already in spite of the license notices. Thirdly, many of the images that your locator maps are replacing are public domain and there is some debate about whether it is preferable to switch to a "less free" image. Thanks for taking the time to consider this. Cheers. Kaldari 00:39, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

I have several questions (you can reply on my Wikipedia or Commons talk page, as you prefer). Which locator maps specifically do you mean, the 49 states? (User:VerruckteDan beat me to Delware) Would just GFDL be free enough? Can you point me to this convention as a policy or guideline here or on Commons? I based my current licensing on User:Ram-Man's maps (see Image:Map of Delaware County, Pennsylvania No Text.png as one example). They are quite similar to mine in source and effort. Could you please point me to the debate? Can you also give examples of the maps mine are replacing? I made the maps as they were consistent in style and followed the model of Image:US Locator Blank.svg stylistically.
I have not decided what to do regarding your request. I will say that the only reward I get with these maps (besides satisfaction) is attribution, which you are asking me to give up. Despite what comes across as a dismissal of my contributions, I have spent a lot of time and effort on these maps. If the maps are replacing others, then they must be perceived as better or more useful by the editors choosing to use them, so maybe my contributions are worth something. Finally, if GFDL is good enough for all my other contributions on Wikipedia, why isn't it good enough for the maps I've made? Thanks, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 04:26, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. It is weird that the school district is split up, i.e. the townships are not contiguous. But I guess that's the way it is. Dincher 23:47, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Ruhrfisch!

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.

Better source request for Image:Sixthfleet.gifEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Sixthfleet.gif. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the help desk or me at my talkpage. Thank you. High Contrast (talk) 17:49, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

I fixed this, thanks. Ruhrfisch (talk) 21:00, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Another problem: This image File:Captured NVA Weapons.jpg has no valid source in the sense of Commons: This link [2] contains no source information of the image. Please correct that as well. Thank you! --High Contrast (talk) 17:57, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

There was a request on the English Wikipedia to move these two images here, which I did (without checking source quality first). I have played around looking for the image on the web site mentioned as the source (Carlisle Army War College) but cannot find it. I am OK with deleting it here and will put a PUI tag on the Englsih Wikipedia version. Thanks, Ruhrfisch (talk) 21:00, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Motivating QI oppose on pump house imageEdit

Hi. I opposed a QI status for your image File:Black Moshannon SP Pump House 2.jpg. I gave two reasons on the candidate page. Firstly, I think the picture should be tilted about 1.5 degrees clockwise. Secondly, the background car is distracting in a picture like this. Beyond this, the grass in the foreground is somewhat overexposed. The first of these three can be easily corrected, but the other two would call for a reshoot. This is unfortunate, because I really like the mood of the image. Keep up the good work! /Dcastor (talk) 13:22, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Marcellus Shale Gas Drilling Tower 1.jpgEdit

Hello,

My name is Willa and I'm an intern with PennEnvironment. We would like to use your photo for a poster we are doing about the Marcellus Shale drilling. I just wanted to verify that it is okay to use your photo, and for credit should I use the name "Ruhrfisch"

Thanks so much, Willa

Sure, as long as you attribute it to Ruhrfisch that is fine. You might prefer File:Marcellus Shale Gas Drilling Tower 1 crop.jpg as it focuses more on the tower. Ruhrfisch (talk) 15:37, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Need some helpEdit

I'm kind of a new user, and I was wondering how exactly you get the county map images that you have submitted. So far, I have submitted two county maps in New York (here they are: File:Chautauqua County, New York Divisions.png, File:Cattaraugus County, New York Divisions.png) by using the same source that you got all of your county maps from. However, in order to get maps of individual counties I had to put them in Paint and do a lot of erasing, copying, and pasting. Also, I couldn't get either of my maps as big as yours because I had to cut them directly from the U.S. census bureau source to put them in Paint. Is there a better/easier way to make maps of individual counties that look as good as this one? —Reelcheeper (talk) 18:35, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, it was very helpful. Do you have any idea when the 2010 census maps will be released? —Reelcheeper (talk) 18:18, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

New York locator map with Adirondack Park and RiversEdit

You did a locator map for New York State that included county lines, File:New York Locator Map.PNG. An older map, File:New York Adirondack.svg lacks the county lines, but has the Adirondack Park area shaded, and shows major rivers. Any chance you could combine the two? Not to replace the present Locator Map, but as a separate map for use on pages in and near the park. -- Mwanner (talk) 21:07, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Many thanks! I didn't realize it would be so labor intensive. Can you make an SVG version? I tried converting it myself, but without success-- I'm afraid I'm pretty clueless with image files. Thanks again, -- Mwanner (talk) 12:12, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Use of Locator Map - Washington CountiesEdit

I am sorry but I am not very conversant in how all of this works. I would like to use the Washington Counties locator map, as per the terms you have posted. The problem is, how do I put it on to my website?

I want to be able to use it with the hyperlinks to the county wiki pages, as it is used on the Wiki site for Washington's Counties. I have downloaded the map, uploaded it to my web domain, then put the programming for the map/hyperlinks in place - however - the way I have programmed it the map does not show up. If I do this:

<a href="/File:Washington_Locator_Map.PNG" class="image"><img alt="" src="//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2d/Washington_Locator_Map.PNG" width="400" height="256" /></a>

the map and the hyperlinks over the map are fine when I publish the website. But that is relying on the .png file that is with wikimedia.

I wanted to have it so it was self contained on my website and wasn't reliant on having to go to the wiki site to get the map file. I've tried variants of the above, substituting the location of the map .png file with where it is out on my domain site:

<a href="/File:Washington_Locator_Map.PNG" class="image"><img alt="" scr="//upload.scatnow.com/democracyworkshop/Washington_Locator_Map.PNG" width="400" height="256" /></a>

I've spent quite a bit of time on this but can never get the map to work like it does using the wiki url.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong. I want to use it, give the proper attribution of course, but I cannot go further at this point. Any help you could give me would be very appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bethatuw (talk • contribs) 02:04, 16 November 2012‎ (UTC)

Hi Bethatuw, while I am fairly familiar with the Wiki software, I am not as conversant with HTML, and am afraid I cannot help you. My only suggestion is that I think you need to download the file (map) and then upload it on your website (not link to it here). It is also very difficult to figure out anything when you do not provide links to the website you are working on. Sorry, Ruhrfisch (talk) 18:58, 19 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

Thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2013! Please help with this survey.

Dear Ruhrfisch,
Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2013, and for sharing your pictures with the whole world! We would like to ask again a few minutes of your time.

Thanks to the participation of people like you, the contest gathered more than 365,000 pictures of cultural heritage objects from more than 50 countries around the world, becoming the largest photography competition to have ever taken place.

You can find all your pictures in your upload log, and are of course very welcome to keep uploading images and help develop Wikimedia Commons, even though you will not be able to win more prizes (just yet).

If you'd like to start editing relevant Wikipedia articles and share your knowledge with other people, please go to the Wikipedia Welcome page for more information, guidance, and help.

To make future contests even more successful than this year, we would like to invite you to share your experiences with us in a short survey. Please fill in this short survey in your own language, and help us learn what you liked and didn't like about Wiki Loves Monuments 2013.

Kind regards,
the Wiki Loves Monuments team
