Hello, Stemonitis!

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.

Unidentified plantsEdit

I notice that you refined the category of some of mine unidentified plants. Thank you very much. I was wondering if you have any idea what plant could this be? File:Flower.1613.jpg It is on a dry stone wall, overgrow with moss, in a humid, shadowy place in the forest. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 07:41, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't know the Swiss flora well enough to be absolutely certain, but it looks a lot like Moehringia muscosa (de:Moos-Nabelmiere). --Stemonitis (talk) 07:57, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Thx :) --Chris.urs-o (talk) 10:41, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Hello Stemonitis
I need help again. Are you able to identify #2 (File:Cyperaceae spp Sturm9.jpg)? ThePlantList.org tells that:[1]
  • Cyperus capitatus Vand., syn. Cyperus mucronatus (L.) Mabille
  • Cyperus laevigatus subsp. distachyos (All.) Ball, syn. Cyperus mucronatus Rottb.
  • Cyperus laevigatus L., syn. Cyperus mucronatus L.
  • Pycreus flavidus (Retz.) T.Koyama, syn. Cyperus mucronatus Steud.
  • FloraWeb.de lists Schoenoplectus mucronatus (L.) Palla,[2] the others seem to be quite absent in France & Germany.[3]
Can you help? Thx. Regards --Chris.urs-o (talk) 08:17, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
Although I have had modest successes with the genus Carex, Cyperus and related genera are still beyond me. Unless Sturm included authority information (several authors have described a "Cyperus mucronatus", presumably referring to different species), it will be difficult to guess which is correct. --Stemonitis (talk) 08:24, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
Thx, I know, this book is a pain in the neck ;) --Chris.urs-o (talk) 08:28, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
BTW, it might interest you. I'm updating this book Regal:Biologie#Bestimmungsbücher. 13 volumes of 14 are done, I think that they look nice ;) --Chris.urs-o (talk) 09:21, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Ilex aquifoliumEdit

Hi Stemonitis,

This is Ilex aquifolium too? File:1 Plant sp. - Kew 30.jpg

And thank you for recognizing the other pictures! Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 14:38, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

No, that looks like a Hedera helix cultivar, but there are also other species in the same genus. --Stemonitis (talk) 14:40, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

OK, thank you! DenesFeri (talk) 14:45, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm here again! It could be this × Fatshedera lizei or Hedera algeriensis. Both look like my plant. What is your opinion? DenesFeri (talk) 14:52, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

I would say not Fatshedera, just guessing from the leaf shape in other pictures. H. algeriensis is a possibility. It's really difficult to say just on the basis of the leaves. --Stemonitis (talk) 15:13, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

OK, thanks anyway! I will put it in Hedera algeriensis category, untill someone who new better will put it on its right place. Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 09:48, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the identifications! DenesFeri (talk) 10:24, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Thalassina anomalaEdit

The real Thalassina anomala

Hi Stemonitis,

I'm almost sure that on its label/paper with the name, it was written Thalassina anomala. Or now, thats only a synonym? Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 09:46, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

I assume this is in reference to File:Iz - Thalassina anomala 2.jpg. Thalassina anomala is still very much a valid name, but for a quite different animal (see image). Your photo shows a very clear example of a slipper lobster (family Scyllaridae), but I can't identify it any more precisely than that at the moment. Sometimes specimens get mislabelled. (Could you have read the label for an adjacent specimen?) --Stemonitis (talk) 10:05, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I might read another specimen's label. Than, I don't know the real name of my creature. Thank you for the correcting my mistake! DenesFeri (talk) 15:21, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

Photographer Barnstar.png The Photographer's Barnstar
Hi!

My name is Edoardo Bit, I am an architect and also a “young researcher” of the University of Ferarra (Italy).

I am writing a book on the “green walls technologies” and I have found very interesting a photo in your page. So, I would kindly ask you if I can use it in my book.

Obviously, if you gently decide to grant me the permission, your name (or your nickname) and the link of the picture will be correctly cited in the credits of my publication.


The photo which I would use is: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Isopyrum_thalictroides.jpg


Thank you very much! I hope you will attend my request… My e-mail is: edoardo.bit@gmail.com

Bye,

Edoardo

Thank you, and of course you can use it! It's already available under a Creative Commons licence, which is probably enough. If you would like me to release it under another licence, do ask. --Stemonitis (talk) 10:23, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Use Request for NPS Dock 102 Visitor CenterEdit

Hello!

I’m contacting you from Formations Inc., an exhibit design firm in Portland, Oregon. We’re working on a series of exhibits for the National Park Service’s Dock 102 visitor center on Governor’s Island in New York. We'd like to use your photo of barnacles (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Barnacles.jpg) on a panel that will show visitors the kinds of creatures they can find on and around the dock.

I see that the page for the barnacles has a note that the image has been released for any type of use; however, our client (the NPS) has asked that we be diligent in verifying all sources, so I'm contacting you to verify that you did take the image and are the copyright holder and that the intended use mentioned above is acceptable.

Thank you very much for your time.

Best regards,

Katie

Yes, I took the picture, I hold the copyright, and I am more than happy for you to use it in your exhibit (or anywhere else). --Stemonitis (talk) 16:23, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks so much for sharing your work! It'll be a great addition to the exhibits. If you're ever in New York, hope you can stop by Governor's Island and check out the visitor center! -Katie

your changes in Orchis areaEdit

Hi Stemonitis, as per User_talk:Túrelio#Wiederherstellung I've reverted several of your edits of today, which resulted in an invalidation of a system created by User:Orchi, who is quite a specialist in botanics. Before making such changes, it's always better to first discuss with other players, in this case with User:Orchi. --Túrelio (talk) 23:18, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

It cuts both ways. Orchi should have discussed these changes before making them, because they produce an inconsistent and ultimately unhelpful system. The MediaWiki software already alphabetises the pages and subcategories within a category, and deals very well with the situation of there being more than can be shown on one page. The system imposed by Orchi is far inferior to that which already exists. As to the collation of species, why should nothospsecies in particular be separated from the others? The standard practice in botanical listings and elsewhere (including en.wiki, for instance), is for the "×" to be ignored for the purposes of collation (it doesn't really have a place in alphabetical order, anyway, even if it has a position in ASCII). Under normal alphabetical ordering (i.e. Epipactis × reinekii appearing under "R" in Epipactis), the nothospecies are still visibly distinguished, but the overall order makes more sense. In this regard, the current situation at Category:Epipactis is much better than that at Category:Ophrys. I don't doubt Orchi's botanical credentials, but his/her proposed system for categories here was an unfortunate choice, and should be undone, and that also applies to Category:Oncidium, which I haven't yet had time to address. --Stemonitis (talk) 07:47, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
In fact, all of the following categories need to be fixed, because the system of dividing into alphabetical categories is deeply flawed. I'm sorry I didn't spot the introduction of this ill-advised system sooner, because it would have saved all of us a lot of work. --Stemonitis (talk) 07:54, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
At the same time when I posted my above comment, I have also asked Orchi to discuss this with you. If you (both) finally cannot come to an agreement, you might involve other editors experienced with botanical taxonomy and/or classification. Regrettably that's not my expertise. --Túrelio (talk) 08:49, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
