Regarding "hai thar"Edit

I hadn't even considered that it might be mistaken for some dialect of English (other than that of traditional Internet mis-spelling). It was just for fun. :) Lewis Collard! (hai thar, wut u doin) 05:27, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Well, as you also did a Norfolk pic (or more, I just noticed the nomination; I got curious ;) having been interested in Pitcairn's history, a while ago. BTW, would YOU be able to merge accounts on request? (enWP, Commons; if YES, I'd contact you by mail.) WeHaWoe 05:38, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
You mean, merge the contributions of your accounts? That's definitely not something I could do on en.wp (I don't have any flags there, just a normal user). I also don't know of any way to do it here, though you might want to ask on IRC or something. Lewis Collard! (hai thar, wut u doin) 10:35, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
That's what I meant, but it's not all-too-very-much an issue to me. I do not (and probably will not ever) use IRC. TX, -- w. WeHaWoe 11:02, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

My Request for AdminshipEdit

Admin mop.PNG Dear W.,

Thank you for voting in my request for adminship, which passed with 25 support, 4 oppose, and 3 neutral. I'm honoured that the community have granted me the administrative tools. If there is anything, then do not hesitate to ask me.

Thank you for the nomination Rocket, it wouldn't have been possible otherwise. Kanonkas(talk)

Thank you very much WeHaWoe for your trust in me. If their is anything you need help with, then don't forget to leave me a note on my talk page :) --Kanonkas(talk) 17:42, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Never mind. I think my (+) just joined a bunch of more competent people's opinions ;) -- WeHaWoe 20:57, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi, you probably really could do something:
I've got a "Barnstar" (of which I'm proud -- call it a vanity) in deWP which was moved away by some bot, some day.

If, at reasonable expense, it might be possible&allowed to "kind-of-move" such to COM (i.e., to THIS place, where it might might be allowed to stay), I'd be pleased. I do not care very much about any deWP's opinions. --WeHaWoe

RE: Your messageEdit

I belive Rocket could help you with that template and all if you do not mind. Not so good with that, sorry. For your other question, the template is about our project scope in English. --Kanonkas(talk) 15:21, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Can you explain a bit here pleaseEdit

Hi - I've become involved with this deletion request. While I see Kelson as quite wrong to repeated remove the deletion tag I confess I am not at all sure of your reasoning in bringing the request. I'd appreciate it if you would make it far clearer. What aspect of our policy & practice here does this gallery infringe? Thanks --Herby talk thyme 12:02, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

I'll do soon. WeHaWoe 13:22, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Why?Edit

Hm, maybe I'm slow but what would be the purpose of this [1] "Outdated version"?? - then we must try to bring it up to date (as I just did earlier today). Now the text gives the impression that the whole page is obsolete, the intention (mine, that is) was to separate general discussions from the short information/trusted user requests. Finn Rindahl (talk) 16:20, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Just having passed by for a moment:
I'm sorry if it did come 'over that way. I wanted to say that the section 'instructions" is meanwhile outdated, and being discussed elsewhere. I totally agree that the "How-To" for the procedure and the talk about it should be split, therefore support your efforts. If you can put this into better English, please do so asap; I'll have another try tomorrow. Best, --WeHaWoe (talk) 17:26, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
OK, if you don't mind I'll rather revert it back to my last version. If people keep adding new sections/discussions later we could always tru to figure out something else. Thanks, Finn Rindahl (talk) 18:26, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
As this concerns work on the related articles, I copy+paste this to Commons talk:MediaMoveBot. Let's please continue there (+eod here). --WeHaWoe (talk) 07:46, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Image:2008-01-03-Magnoliophyta-older-talk.pngEdit

I have no opinion about the rename of this image; thank you for keeping it accurate, if that is what the renaming is doing. I did look at it because it is in my watch list and I was curious about what the suggested rename of it was.

When I saw the screengrab, I chuckled (again) as I probably did when I took it. Because I do not think that commons or wikipedia or any of the public software or instances of it which claim to have been from GPL (or even did come from) should be a place in which individual users are not allowed to have and express opinions in the places that allow that, I am interested to know of your opinion of the screengrab. -- carol (talk) 06:42, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

  1. I just edited this image as a kind of trial run because I try to improve on the renaming process by bot, which is somewhat chaotic by now (too many templates interfering [imo], and the bot does not seem to do exactly what it should, or what instructions claim it should do).
  2. Second: In case you want to have a different target name, please tell me and I'd be pleased to help, because
  3. my English is less than perfect. Having said that, I admit that I do not understand what you mean by "... GPL (or even did come from) should be a place in which individual users are not allowed to have and express opinions in the places that allow that" Could you please put that part in two or three simpler sentences?
  • I mean, in principle: WP = GPL = free. Why disallow anyone to "express opinions" (for as long as its in an appropriate way)?
  • Or, do you talk about the article talk or the seemingly moving of the talk (which you probably wanted to be documented by the screenshot) -- in this case I cannot and probably will not help, hating talk turning into chat and avoiding it as much as I can, even in German, and, moreover: see #3 -- Best, --WeHaWoe (talk) 07:05, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
I guess the screengrab made me laugh. The memory of the Reagan years in the search thingie, my frustration at the time that I took it. Probably, mostly, I think I asked if the screen grab made you laugh at all. And whats more, I am really bored now that the "drama boards" at english wikipedia aren't. I am going to try to reverse this ineffective and unproductive mood I am in now.
I don't care what the name of that image is. Image:Ronald Reagen Ketchup.jpg seems to be available.... -- carol (talk) 13:02, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
SOOO sorry, that it (the pic) didn't make me laugh ;)))) -- i just used it as one sample 8b --WP "as-is" makes me laugh (and, not less often, wheep), sometimes.
BTW: Is the term "sreengrab" more common than "screenshot", meanwhile? Where?
Anyways: My love&best_wishes to you, from an old-ould-man. <3 kshanti. --WeHaWoe (talk) 18:49, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

@CarolEdit

Hi, are you aware that your user page comes like this to a WinXP+Firefox user? (just to tell you; you should see a sreengrab. In case you read something like "ThinkPink", there's more delay in WP than I expected ;[ ). --WeHaWoe (talk) 12:40, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Pink CC + v.GoghEdit

Hi Samuel, I'm pleased to see that you use the template I invented & designed (the hard technical work was done by user:Rocket000; details on request). Unfortunately, user:Duesentrieb's omnipresent "Gallery tool" does still not recognize Pink_CC as valuably tagging pictures as "CC-by-3.0", although it does (you'd get those shocking red notes when using the gallery tool). In case you have any idea how to animate Duesentrieb to improve on this bug: go ahead. My effort was in vain (no response at all; link on request).

Besides: In case you can pass by Category talk:Vincent van Gogh, my actual major COM-project, and give feedback, you'd be more than welcome. It's pretty lonely "out there", for a while. It is not so much about "van Gogh experts" than about file description and -names and designing sub-categories. Best, --WeHaWoe (talk) 13:49, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Wolfgang, I am Diti, the “maintainer” of Samuel's works. Theoretically, all my contributions on his photos —like the recent changes from {{Cc-by-sa-3.0}} to {{Pink_CC}}— are applied according to his consent ; meaning that I let him know as soon as possible and revert if he doesn't agree (practically, I wonder whether an OTRS permission for each contrib of mine is actually needed). So, even though he's an amazingly good photographer and can give his opinion for such works, he has neither motivation nor time to help people on Commons (for example, he went on Antarctica until late March).
I'll try to contact Duesentrieb, hopefully I get more lucky. But I planned on adding an additional parameter, which could transform this BY license into a BY-SA one. In that case, wouldn't a link within Duesentrieb's tool be problematic, if this template does indicate several kind of licenses? Anyway, copyright status become clearer as soon as the Image page get displayed.
I skimmed through your category talk page, what is that about? For creating a special category/namespace according to filetype, am I right?
Thanks for your template though, it's very useful for professional photographers like Samuel (and I like that pink color ;). Diti (talk to the penguin) 18:54, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
FIRST, I think, if the category talk page is not self-explaining, it's badly made ;(((.
Well… There is no "summing up section" on this page, and the talk page itself is huge! Diti (talk to the penguin) 22:14, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
SECOND: In case you can get in contact with D., it would be fine. Concerning WORK on the templates, I could not help, THAT was done by someone highly skilled who does not seem to be available to WP/COM at this time any more. Best, --WeHaWoe (talk) 19:13, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
According to the one who REALY did the job, a while ago, it should tag files to cc.by-sa-3.0 and not to anything else.--WeHaWoe (talk) 20:01, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
I have just changed this, since the template does not say that we "may distribute the resulting work only under the same, similar or a compatible license." I can take care of the modification that would add the wanted Share-Alike clause soon. Diti (talk to the penguin) 22:14, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The warning at the top of your userpage is hardly noticeable. Sorry, I didn't see it… If you want to continue the talk somewhere else, just delete this discussion, I will reply on Samuel's talk page. =) Diti (talk to the penguin) 22:19, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

That's not the terrifying thing ;)) -- I however strongly oppose to any changes on that template which was created with much effort to keep it as simple as ever possible. See /TestSite. It was exactly the point to create something useful which avoids all "stuff" which hardly is of anyone's interest, but ennoys the viewer by blowing up the display. Therefore, we really had worked on each single word for quite a while. Anyone can look-up the exact cc-by-conditions on their page to which the template links (and hardly anyone will ever do), and I have the written OK from CC that the template was fine as-was. Besides, there were made quite elaborated multilingual translations. Sorry, I'm going to revert. --WeHaWoe (talk) 07:05, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Your renameEdit

It seems as if something went wrong with your rename: The talk-pages where not mooved. I fixed this and I hope its okay now. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 14:04, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

TX a lot. This seems to be due to one enWP user who successfully addressed me at COM:WeHaWoe and left a message there, AFTER my rename to COM:user:W., which I wanted to remove. After doing so, my W._talk page appeared for a while under "user talk:WeHaWoe", SOLELY. I actually do not care very much about talks at all, but I'm VERY glad that you obviously fixed the problem: B.I.G_thanks. --Wolfgang H.W. (talk) 14:22, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

SchwierigEdit

Hallo Wolfgang, ich bin ein bißchen verunsichert, da ich alles, was englisch geschrieben wird, nur ungenau und deshalb auch die Schwierigkeiten mit Pink kaum verstehe.

Deshalb meine Fragen:

1.) Muß ich schnell etwas an meinen Bilddaten ändern?

2.) Wäre es sinnvoll, bei Gelegenheit etwas zu ändern?

3.) Was konkret sollte geändert werden?

oder 4.) Kann ich alles so lassen wie es ist? Dann wäre mir lieb zu wissen, wie meine Vorlage in Zukunft aussehen sollte.

Mit herzlichen Grüßen - und Dank im Voraus --Galbrima (talk) 11:38, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, war jetzt 3 Tagel ang offline -- gelegentlich, wenngleich selten, gibt's auch "real life" ;))
Nein, DU musst eigentlich nix tun -- insbesondere, da ich erinnere, dass Dich Details der von Dir vergebenen Lizenzen wenig scheren. PASSIERT ist ein NAHEZU-Undenkbares "Hoppala"", nämlich, dass die Lizenz als cc-by-sa AUSGEWIESEN und KATEGORISIERT wurde, das "TEMPLASTE" jedoch auf die weniger enge Lizenz "CC-by" (ohne "SA", d.h. "Weitergeben NUR unter denselben Bedingungen") verwies.
WIE das passierte, ist nicht mehr nachvollziehbar, der Mann (damals COM-Admin), der die Programmierarbeit machte, ist inzwischen nicht mehr in COM aktiv und reagiert auch nicht auf Privatmails, aber ein Franzose, der (für einen dritten) das Template nutzt, entdeckte den Fehler und befand es für wichtig, "der Sachge auf den Grund zu gehen".

FAKTEN:

  1. Das Template Pink_CC verweist dzt. auf die falsche Lizenz, nämlich CC_by statt des versprochenen CC-by-sa (cc-by schließt nicht aus, dass ein von dritter Seite genutztes Bild unter einer anderen Lizenz weiterverbreitet werden dürfte, im Gegensatz zu ..._sa)
  2. ALLE DREI (+mich, vier) betroffenen Urheber (einschließlich des vom Frenchman eingebrachten) wollten EIGENTLICH CC_BY_SA lizenzieren.
  3. Wenn Du also, wie ich annehme, auch nix dagegen hast, passe ich wie im Talk vor etlichem angekündigt, den Verweis im Template an, statt den Palaver über das Pseudo-Problemchen ins Unendliche zu führen ;)
  4. Dein OK hier wäre sehr erwünscht, Rest per Privatmail. Danke, lgw.

Hallo, danke für die Antwort. Es stimmt schon, daß mir das mit den Lizenzen eher ein lästiges Übel erscheint. Trotzdem ist mir natürlich CC_BY_SA lieber, und wenn Du das Template entsprechend anpasen kannst, danke ich Dir. Aber ich würde mir auch mal wieder Bildchen für Bildchen vornehmen und überprüfen, wenn es notwendig wäre. Demnächst kommen übrigens noch einige der längst versprochenen Bronzefiguren dazu :) Mit den besten Grüßen --Galbrima (talk) 17:12, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Also wenn nicht nochwer auf "sophisticated" macht, sollte die Anpassung seit 1 Tag erledigt sein wie vorgeschlagen. Ist echt grotesk wenn sowieso alle das selbe wollen und der am wenigsten Betroffene von denen sagt "...aber das kann+darf doch sooo nicht gehen..." ;)) -- mein wirkliches Problem ist aber dzt., dass mich die Vandalismusgeschichte vom Mai dzt. eine Menge Kraft+Nerven kostet (und tatsächlich halb krank macht), und da hat mir DER mit seiner Zickigkeit gerade noch gefehlt ;)
Bin übrigens, weil ich bei vanGogh unlängst umkrempeln wollte, auf die Vorlage "Painting" (statt der allgemeineren "information") gestoßen und erwarte, dass in den nächsten Tagen ein wenig Rückmeldung kommt (nicht über die Diskus, wo ich großteils Selbstgespräche führte, aber über Leute die ich per Mail extra anquatschte). Es könnte also sein, dass für zukünftige Uploads von Gemälden Template:Painting die bessere Lösung wäre -- vorhandene Templates zu ändern, wäre jedoch meistens witzlos, ausgenommen z.B. vGogh, wo sie großteils saumäßig schlecht ausgefüllt wurden und man sowieso ausmisten sollte. Um "Kurzweil" bis gg. Weihnachten brauche ich mich also nicht extra zu bemühen ;)) lgw. Wolfgang (talk) 18:19, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

wiki rendered user pagesEdit

I am here to thank you for giving me an opportunity to once again spew my opinion of what seems to be a very "rank system" here. In the case that I stray from this goal, it should be here at the beginning and in no uncertain terms of what might become another spewing of opinions of mine. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to once again spew my opinion of what seems to be a very "rank system" here.

A very long while ago when I was first learning css, I had an opportunity to use an application to make html with (I think it was adobe's dreamweaver but it has been quite a few years since then) as someone I knew then had purchased it. I think that attempt to use that application ended up with me purchasing a css reference for this acquaintance (should have been "friend" and not just "acquaintance" but this word needs two people with a certain tolerance and investment to use) as the interface just popped up a little box so that the user could type the style stuff in one line at a time. Or, put another way, just typing it with a text editor was much more simple and almost the same thing and the user who purchased the application needed to know css style stuffs to use the application....

That person actually liked the little bus icon that MSWord provided then for moving text and image things around, so it is a big world and there are many different tastes and appreciations for many different things that it should make it a nicer world to be in as we are not all grabbing for the same things. Also, truth be known, I started with Linux but am one of those rare pre-2000 Linux users who uses a gui text editor (not emacs and rarely vi, terminal interfaced text editors) so I have my own preferences that others have a strong distaste for.

I tried to just cover a broad spectrum of interfaces because of how silly it often seems to me to be using wiki mark up to make html with when html is often much easier to just type directly and acts more predictably because it isn't being filtered through an interpreter. It is not unlike using the language translators to go from one language to another and then back to the original. The additional interface is supposed to make it easier for people to work together with?

What is interesting for this "working together" idea is that the last time I was able to actually work together with people it was in making an interface that made making web sites a little more simple to manage and the web site that used it. It was very long ago now and from a nicer bunch of days when the feeling that I had was that I was being asked how to make computers do things instead of these last several years now where I feel that I am being observed instead of asked (to accomplish the same thing). Just a feeling and not anything that I can prove -- so much so that all I can do since then is make the claim over and over again about how mostly wrong my situation is. This is a good place to interject the thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion of some of the rank systems that are in place and how people are working together with them....

I think that one of the first things I did here was to make that template and my understanding of how the additional interface worked was so non-existent that I then went on to use the mixed html and wiki markup instead of the template to render the little opinion box on my user page. A year later (give or take a few weeks) I have a few good feelings and also I have quite a few months now of making useful templates via wiki interface. These templates actually do make a presentation of a few complicated sets of systems easier and the wiki-interface makes sense to use for this case (and perhaps for other similar information sets). There is still a failure of the interface to provide the "working together" parts that it promised though.

So, in conclusion, I am actually sorry that my somewhat current browser renders my user page nicely. Too many years of bad, wrong and ugly feelings which are mostly of aloneness in a world which was I had imagined would be nicer because real people could work together more easily due to an internet connection which would super-cede the rank systems which had been in place. Too many years of being required to not care about the opinions of others perhaps, especially when most of what I see and hear is so negative and un-informed and nit-picky.

Part two, if you are caring enough and I am still enthused enough would be about how the nature of this project should not be about beautiful user pages. That being said, I appreciate that you took the time to look at the page and mention its broken-ness. I really do.

Also, your talk page was already on my watchlist and I have no memory for the reason for that. Was I previously rude or unhappy and expressing it here? -- carol (talk) 14:30, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

No, Carol, you for sure were never rude to me nor anything similar -- I myself do not remember why we contacted (why I might have contacted you), either, but it for-sure was "quite a while ago" ;)) (remember: MAY'08= "a little while ago", to ME ;))), and for little reason.
So, please, do not worry at all. Thank you, and: Best. --Wolfgang (talk) 14:56, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
BTW: I, for myself, never-ever cared about any "ranking", and therefore feel that I am not at all a competent dialogue partner on such.
I did see something very beautiful today, a technology advance/application of which made me feel delightfully incompetent in a very real way: the Earth Observatory Image of the Day. 1966 was perhaps the last chance that I had for any real happiness and feelings of fairness as this was the year my only whole younger sibling was born, thus destroying the perfectly good and complete and mostly fair world in which I happily existed in.... That image was taken about a month and two weeks after the end of all happiness! -- carol (talk) 15:32, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for that wonderful pic. There's nothing wrong about an Earth Rise, I'd say ;))) ??? -- Regarding siblings, I do not feel competent: I unfortunately[???] didn't have any. --Wolfgang (talk) 15:40, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
In my limited experience, an only child is also not a good purveyor of mistruths to other people but is perhaps really good at lying to themselves. Sibs that shared early childhood together are the closest things to peers that any system can provide, perhaps. It is too bad the emotional crap also exists within that system.
You should always remain an incompetent for dialogs of rank systems. -- carol (talk) 16:11, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
ACK. &eod. Best, love, &anything, ;]]]] -Wolfgang (talk) 16:20, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

your messageEdit

hi there,

well first of all there are not many users on the Commons, that's why it can take a long time to get a response. And users are involved with their own work, so not noticing something can happen.

About your question: The format for naming images in my opinion is laid down by the Yorck project. So if you want to upload van Gogh images, you have to start with the number Image:Vincent_Willem_van_Gogh_141.jpg, then Image:Vincent_Willem_van_Gogh_142.jpg, etc. Use the painting template

{{Painting| |Title= |Technique= |Dimensions= |Location= |Country={{de| Niederlande und Frankreich}} |Gallery= |Notes= |Source= |Year= |Artist=[[Vincent Willem van Gogh|Gogh, Vincent Willem van]] |Permission={{pd-art}} |Other versions= }} and don't forget to add the language template for each description, see "Country" which oddly in this case means where van Gogh worked, not in which country the art piece is. As for the categories it should be as specific as possible. So a drawing is not a painting, that is true. Divide into "Paintings by Vincent van Gogh" and "Drawings by Vincent van Gogh", etc. depending on which medium was used. You can sort images by type and by location. I cleaned up some categories here, for example Category:Paintings by Vincent van Gogh in the Musée d'Orsay, which should stay as it is.

So basically use the format for files by the Yorck Project. Categorise by 1) medium (painting, drawing, etc.) 2) Location of the painting (which museum) 3) Type (what does it show? apples, flowers, a specific landscape, person, city, etc.). 4) year created (optional). Hope this answers your questions. Gryffindor (talk) 20:43, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer, which however does not REALLY answer my questions. Some arbitrary number seems to me less than satisfying. Did you ever pass by at Category_talk:Vincent_van_Gogh? The questions I put there were by far more elaborated, as were the questions about Template:Painting which lack answers for quite a while. tx, (I'll answer tomorrow, i.e. within ca. 12-18 hrs) Wolfgang (talk) 20:58, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Image:Vincent van Gogh The Sower.jpgEdit

Dear W., it probably escaped your attention, but this image is used on wikisource page s:nl:De nieuwe beweging in de schilderkunst/afbeeldingenkatern. Could you please undu the deletion request, then I will make clear what it's doing on commons. Thank you, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 13:58, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

I did not care where outdated stuff is used [I think those people running "CommonsDelinker" have-to], I just do my best to cleanup the mess which was created by idiots NAMING files by arbitrary uploads without describing them (which does not apply in this case. I of course withdraw this "speedy").
Question: Is there a simple-man's way to mark any file for "NO_DELETION", due to being used on e.g. ws? [or whatever project?] I cannot afford the time to lookup every louzy file's usage.
Thanks for the information, indeed. Best, Wolfgang (talk) 14:06, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
No problem, Wolfgang. I was wondering the same. I know there's a tag for "Images with intentional borders" (see Template:Border is intentional), but not for warning people it's being used elsewhere. I'll just do what i did with Image:Vincent van Gogh The Pavilion.jpg and make a little note, but I can't promise it will be resorted under Vincent van Gogh by someone one day. So you might see it again. Regards, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 14:24, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
Hi. I for sure never will oppose any construcive criticism.
Unfortunately, my (by-far-less-than-perfect) lists do not identify "The Pavilion". Could you provide any F_ or JH_ ID on thisone?
The problem, imo, occurs by translating an item's name [which, BTW, is not even "authoritative" by itself, even if given in French or Dutch] more-than-once. tx, Wolfgang (talk) 14:37, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
I think it's identical to "Das Gemeindehaus in Auvers". The title "The Pavilion" is taken from the caption the 1919 publication Drie voordrachten over de nieuwe beeldende kunst, (see http://sdrc.lib.uiowa.edu/dada/Drie_Voordrachten/pages/083.htm) and since that is not a scientific publication on Van Gogh I wouldn't think too much of it. Regards, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 14:51, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
TX. The lists I use are from http://www.vangoghgallery.com/catalog/ which is, as far as I can see, more-or-less a copy from (less easy-to-search) http://www.vggallery.com. I am aware that even the VGM-supported vggallery might have deficiencies, but it is the best that I can afford.
Besides, I widely use the two versions (en+de) of the most recent catalogue editions from the "Albertina" exhibition [which closes today]. Thisone was edited by "Klaus Albrecht Schröder", director of the "Albertina" which did this show, plus one "Heinz Widauer", plus one "Sjaar van Heugten", plus one "Marije Vellekoop". I do think those names stand for themselves.

Massen-UploadsEdit

Sorry, hab Deine E-Mail erst jetzt gesehen. Wenn ich das recht verstehe, stört Dich der Einleitungstext? Probier 'mal das hier... Aber für Massen-Uploads solltest Du Dir vielleicht auch einmal Commons:Tools/Commonist anschauen. Hab' selbst keine Erfahrung damit, aber andere scheinen dieses Programm ohne Probleme zu benutzen. Lupo 13:37, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

a) <3<3<3 ;)) genau das brauch' ich.
b1) mit derlei tools tue ich mir generell+speziell sehr schwer; z.T. weil ich da mehr als eine Genaeraion "drüber" bin.
b2) Ich befürchte, dass sich die Massenuploader damit leicht tun, aber denen die dann den Mischmasch aufräumen das Leben gewaltig versauern. Für eine Kunst-Sammlung habe ich das jetzt annähernd mitbekommen, was bei Wischiwaschi-Uploads an "Nachbetreung" anfällt. Ich sage bloß das Stichwort "Yorck poject", das aber ohnedies noch relativ gut dokumentiert (beschreibt). Trotzdem brauche ich, nachdem ich in van Gogh halbwegs eingearbeitet bin, für etwa 80 Dateien rund 600 min um sie überhaupt katalogisieren zu können -- für ein oeuvre, für das seit 1970 zu mehr als 95% eindeutige IDs zur Verfügung standen!!!
Und Mehrfachedits der selben Datei waren nötig, d.h. teilweise vor-sortieren, und erst in einem 2. oder 3. Durchgang ist es dann einem ~Verrückten zumutbar, das File / das Gemälde gezielt im Internet zu suchen (wobei es für van Gogh eine fast perfekte Sammlung gibt, und eine weitere, hochgradig vollständige, die man zum crosscheck heranziehen kann.
Dies alles bloß, weil derjenige der husch-husch massenhaft hochlud nicht einwandfrei katalogisierte. Dazu kommt, dass gut 25% der Arbeit durch "Multiples" verursacht wird, die häufig deswegen hochgeladen sein worden könnten, weil aus dem Saustall in der Kategorie nicht ersichtlich sein konnte, dass es files zu diesem Originalgemälde bereits gab. Besonders genial war es, dass manche Uploads dann noch Bildtitel ausschließlich auf Deutsch angaben, was in den meisten Fällen eine noch schlechtere Übersetzung der fr oder für Frühwerke nl-üblichen Bezeichnung ergibt, wobei ohnedies die im Web verfügbaren Komplettsammlungen Englisch titeln und auf die weitgehende Beliebigkeit der en-Titel hinweisen). Ich habe gerade kein Beispiel zur Hand, bin auch etwas überdreht, weil seit ~0306 UT am Arbeiten, mit jetzt einer kurzen Nach-Mittagspause. Unterm Strich: Meine Uploads werden gewiss manuell vorbereitet und dann einzeln gesichtet und hochgeladen.
c) Möchte ich aber darauf hinweisen, dass ich dzt. eine sehr ausführlich beschreibende Category talk:Vincent van Gogh im Selbstgespräch führe. Sollte es Dir zumutbar sein, dort vorbeizuschauen und zu kommentieren, wär's toll. Wenn Du freie Valenzen hast, schicke ich Dir gern auch per Mail oder auf Deine Talk page die dzt. dringendsten Fragen, dann brauchst Du Dich dort nicht durchzulesen (Siebrand, beispielsweise, scheint zu verweigern). Wenn auch das nicht drin ist, mach hier eine kurze Notiz und ich lass' Dich in Frieden.
d) Auf der CAT:vG talk page nicht oder kaum erwähnt wird derzeit, dass ich seit geraumer Zeit anfrage, ob man denn nicht {{Painting}} um ein Feld "Location created=" erweitern könnte. Null traffic im dortigen talk. Verstehe bitte recht, ich will nix erzwingen, aber zur Vorbereitung meiner Nachbesserungen existierender Dateibeschreibungen (die teilweise vor neuen Uploads erfolgen sollten) und der Uploads, [was ich aus Word-Tabellen zusammenstricke, mit denen ich recht gut umgehen kann] brauche ich die info, ob mein Ansinnen "drin ist" oder ich es auf absehbare Zeit vergessen soll. Meine Meinung ist: falls es ausdrücklich ein solches Feld gibt, besteht die ~Chance dass es ausgefüllt wird. Falls so ein Feld nicht existiert, ist Chance~NULL.
e) und zuletzt: Es scheint relativ knifflig, ein Template wie {{Creator}} "zusammenklappbar" zu machen, wäre aber sehr wünschenswert. Dzt. "bequasselt" die Dateibeschreibung auch jeden der vG kennt mit seiner Lebens-Kurzgeschichte -- und wer kennt ihn nicht wenigstens annähernd? Uploader wie die für's Yorck-Projekt nutzten daher das erste Feld Artist= fast immer für eine Verlinkung zum en-Artikel, oder zur Kategorie, und flickten dann das {{Creator}} hinten-unten dazu, was ja wohl nicht im Sinn der Sache ist und auch noch meist potthässlich aussieht. Falls Dir dazu was "aus dem Handgelenk rutscht", wär's traumhaft. Als Beispiel nimm Image:Vincent Willem van Gogh 071.jpg und die history ;) Lieben Gruß, und danke nochmals, Wolfgang (talk) 16:01, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
Zu hinterletzt: Linkspammer, die van-Goghs hochladen, scheinbar um Links auf selbsterstellte uninformative Seiten zu platzieren und nebenbei eigene künstlerische Produkte zu promoten: User:Nolan mit Verweis auf z.B. http://galeon.com/nolangallery/vangogh/10.jpg und http://www.abcgallery.com/index.html im selben Upload -- wie damit umgehen? Die beiden[???] machten einen Haufen Arbeit mit ihren lausig beschrifteten "Multiples" zu Vorhandenem -- andererseits war auch ein paarmal eine bessere Datei dabei als wir=COM sonst hätten. Da wird AGF zum Äußersten strapaziert. Etwa Image:Van_gogh_1.jpg (zufällig soeben gefunden, weil unkategorisiert) vs. Image:Van_Gogh_1.jpg und History. ohne ein anderwärts leidlich beschriftetes Exemplar vom selben Original hätte ich die ID immer noch nicht. Wobei man halt bei den paar Dutzend files nie sagen kann, ob der Uploader bloß so saublöd war oder die Verwirrung mit System schafft (was ich allerdings befürchte, und wozu ihm Yorck die Handhabe gibt [gab?]). -- huch, ist entsetzlich lang geworden. Sorry. Wolfgang (talk) 16:01, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
Uff. Willst Du mich erschlagen? Eins nach dem anderen. Das Einfache zuerst: ausklappbare {{Creator}}-Templates. Schau 'mal bei COM:VP#Creator templates 'rein... Lupo 22:06, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
"Wes das Herz voll ist..." 8(( -- um Gotteswillen nein, ich brauch' Dich doch. Und auf der vG talk page lässt sich keine Sau blicken seit ich G. abblitzen ließ (falls Du vielzuviel Zeit hast, im Archiv ist's nachzulesen ;) Und ich habe ein Problem mit talks die sich über verschiedene Seiten erstrecken, weil es mir sehr schwer fällt sie im Auge zu behalten -- deswegen hab' ich standardmäßig den VP nicht (mehr) auf der watchlist und meide ihn.
Gerade das Dir einfach scheinende liegt mir seit Wochen am meisten am Herzen und inzwischen im Magen. Ich hatte mich kaum zu fragen getraut! Super! Betr. tl|Oil on canvas und tl|X-museum hab' ich mich aber doch an Deine Frage dort anzuhängen versucht -- in Summe geht's um die Nutzbarkeit und ggf. geringfügige Umgestaltung von {{Painting}}. Womit wir beim Thema wären:
Jetzt geht's (m.i.r ;) eigentlich nur noch darum, abzuklären, ob das mir wünschenswert scheinende Feld "Location created=" kommen wird, und wie es heißen soll.
(Dazu: ich bat um ein Feld "ID=", das mike.l dann auch einfügte. Da ich überzeugt war dass es kommen muss, hatte ich es in meinen Mustern bereits ausgefüllt. Allerdings steht jetzt zwar ID= aufm Bildschirm, aber das Feld heißt "id=", meine edits "ID=" erscheinen also nicht -- kein Problem dzt, abgesehen davon dass ich mich wundere A verlangt und a bekommen zu haben, obwohl sämtliche anderen Feldnamen mit Großbuchstaben beginnen. Für meine Großaktion, die letztlich nicht weniger als 400 Dateibeschreibungen betreffen wird, eher 500, möchte ich daher schon wissen, wie tl|painting genau aussehen wird / =aussieht, bevor ich aus meiner Tabelle heraus die Beschreibungen "stricke".) lg, Wolfgang (talk) 03:17, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Ok, ich habe 'mal das ID-Feld in {{painting}} umgebaut, so dass es sowohl mit "ID" als auch mit "id" und "Id" funktioniert. Was "Location created" angeht: weshalb kann man solche Zusatzinformationen nicht einfach im Feld "Notes" unterbringen? Lupo 08:02, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Man kann. Meine Überlegung war, dass ein Feld das ausdrücklich nach einer bestimmten Eingabe fragt größere Chancen hat "beschickt" zu werden als das allgemeine "Notes". Der Albertins-Katalog etwa gäbe für jedes ausgestellte Bild etliche Bildschirmseiten teilweise sehr interessanter Informastionen her, ... ;) -- es ist also abzuwägen, ob das eine zusätzlich Feld die Informationen mehr überschaubar gestaltet als irritiert, und meine Meinung hab' ich ja dargelegt.
Einen Krieg werd' ich darum nicht anfangen, aber ich möchte auch möglichst vermeiden dass ich meine Beschreibungen "stricke" und eingebe, und drei Tage danach kommt "man" drauf dass die Idee doch gut war und umgesetzt wird (weil vorher keiner in die Disku reinschaute).
Aber wie gesagt, von der Programmierer-Seite her (ev. Serverbelastung?) kann ich's nicht abschätzen, von der Sicht anderer möglicher Anwender her auch nicht, und ohne drüber reden zu können steh' ich halt im Regen und warte. Es war einfach ein Vorschlag auf den keiner reagierte. Gruß, Wolfgang 08:17, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Private Frage/Bitte @LupoEdit

Was muss ich tun, damit meine Unterschrift so gestrickt wird wie Deine, also entweder W. oder lieber, falls mit gleichem Aufwand erreichbar, Wolfgang?

Da ich meine Userseite ohnedies für den Rest meines Lebens auf die D-Seit weiterleiten werden, ist mir der dzt. nach vier Tilden generierte Rattenschwanz eigentlich "peinlich".

Vielleicht (wenn da nicht ein Skript dahintersteckt) kannst Du einfach mit einem Screenshot, der die nötigen Einstellungen zeigt, mein semi-privates Image:How-To.gif überschreiben -- es wurde genau für Deppen wie mich und meine Bekanntschaften geschaffen, um vorzeigen zu können, wo+wie eine Einstellung vorzunehmen ist. Wolfgang (talk) 03:39, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Dazu braucht's keinen Screenshot. Gehe zu Deinen Einstellungen und gib im Feld "Signature" (oder "Unterschrift") folgendes ein:
[[User:W.|Wolfgang]]
Dann klickst Du noch in das Kästchen neben "Raw signatures" bzw. "Signatur ohne Verlinkung zur Benutzerseite" (blöder Text, sollte eher "handgestrickte Unterschrift" oder so heissen). Zu guter Letzt klickst Du auf "Einstellungen speichern". Fertig. Fortan sollte Deine Unterschrift wie gewünscht aussehen. Lupo 07:53, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Nadannissjaguut. (Ronja Räubertochter ;) Gerade auf einfach Lösungen kommt man oft schwer. Aber wem sag' ich das. Vor der "raw signature" hatte ich einige Abneigung, seit ich sie auf deWP echt "ohne Verlinkung" nutzte und nach einem darauf folgenden "Handgemenge" mit einem Blödian der mich anstänkerte nicht signiert zu haben prompt gesperrt wurde ;) -- lg, Wolfgang 08:02, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Es ist wichtig einen kühlen Kopf zu bewahren, besonders dann, wenn man selbst oder das eigene Tun kritisiert wird. Persönliche Angriffe und störende oder unpassende Kommentare führen nur zu einer Eskalation der Situation. Denk also daran: Der klügere gibt nach! Notfalls kann man sich immer noch an einen Administrator oder eine andere Person seines vertrauens wenden. Versuche bitte höflich zu bleiben. Danke! abf /talk to me/ 18:58, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Mein&Dein "Der Klügere gibt nach..." wird konterkariert durch [in etwa:] '"Der Klügere gibt nach ..." ...ist ein Sprichwort zugunsten der Dummen (ich versuche den Text einer ihrerzeit recht gescheiten Frau demnächst nachzureichen; im www sollte er jedoch jederzeit nachvollziehbar sein). lg, w.

E-MailsEdit

Hallo Wolfgang, eine Bitte: ich beantworte Anfragen nur dann via E-Mail - aufgrund einer allzu vollen Inbox - wenn diese privat bleiben sollen/können oder sich nicht auf das Projekt beziehen. Alles auf das Projekt Bezogene gehört bitte auf meine oder auf sonstige Projekt-Diskussionsseiten, schon alleine deswegen, weil es vielleicht anderen hilft meine Aktionen zu verstehen und nachzuvollziehen und eventuell manchmal sogar anderen eine Hilfe ist, usw.

re:Template talk:Pink CC/deEdit

Hallo Wolfgang, tut mir leid ich weisz wirklich nicht, was Du dort von mir erwartest. Ein Vorschlag: warum sprichst Du nicht die Person an, die die Aenderung vorgenommen hat, die Dich stört. Ich habe auf Commons sicher nicht sehr viel Erfahrung mit Vorlagen und noch weniger mit deren Kategorisierung. LG., --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:02, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Tat ich ja, aber da kommt zu wenig zurück. Oder findest Du echt, eine Frage an Duesentrieb vom 6. Juni auf die es trotz mindestens zweimaligen Nachhakens bis heute keine Reaktion gibt fällt unter "Kommunikation"? (bin mir nicht mehr sicher, glaube aber zweimal in ~Monatsabstand gemailt zu haben). Ich komme mir, ehrlich gestanden, auch bei vier Tagen Wartezeit auf eine simple Frage wie an Multichill bereits ein wenig verarscht vor, wenn er ohnedies laufend aktiv ist.
Ich habe daher den heutigen Vormittag investiert, um das Problem wenigstens auf Deutsch zu schildern, und zwar dort wo es hauptsächlich auftritt, und vielleicht eine Diskussion in Gang zu setzen -- auf Englisch wäre mir das dzt. zu anstrengend. Vor allem: Wo jemand nicht verstehen will, lässt sich jederzeit die Ausrede des Sprachproblems finden.
Grundsatzfrage (auf die ich von Dir eine kompetente Antwort erhoffte -- Cecil ist ja dzt. nicht verfügbar): kann man sowas machen, und wenn ja, wie / bzw., wen damit befassen? Die wenigen Leute die mir bereits mit Templates und Problemchen im van-Gogh Projekt laufend helfen/geholfen haben wollte ich damit nicht auch noch belasten, und ich kenne nur sehr wenige Kompetente (vor allem Manske, Lupo, Dschwen; ein paar andere hab' ich noch im Hinterkopf).
Mir wäre also bereits ernsthaft geholfen, wenn Du mir ein paar Namen nennen könntest (vorläufig, wie gesagt, deutschsprachig -- ich bin total saumüde, und van Gogh wird nach jetziger Schätzung noch mindestens 1 Monat meine Kraft zu 90% in Anspruch nehmen (oder sich noch länger verzögern). Aber DER ist's auch GEWISS wert -- beim tl|Pink_CC bin ich inzwischen nicht mehr sicher. Vor allem nicht, wenn ich ohnedies zusehen muss wie es verwässert und abgetragen wird). Gruß, Wolfgang 15:40, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

File:Van gogh - oescolar06.jpgEdit

Gern geschehen. Und vielen Dank für den Warnung! (I hope I've got it right... to be honest, I need to train my German a lot...)

And thanks a lot for creating collapsible MASP! It's a wonderful and very useful initiative. I had been worried about how extensive the predefinition of paitings was becoming, and I liked a lot the appearance of it in this file.

Oh... I'll soon start editing my userpage, don't worry.

Best, Dornicke (talk) 21:19, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi, nice to read compliments, from time to time.
Note: it is more usual at COM to continue talks where they began. This "babylonic" enterprise is by itself difficult enough to be "followed", and spreading talks to more pages does not make things easier ;) -- after a conversation with an Italian, however, I'm aware that in some countries it is "common practice" to address someone who left a message at the sender's talk page. Here, it is rather not. (Thatone had addressed me at my deWP talk page, after I left a msg at his COM page, and I'd felt somewhat disturbed about ;)
BTW: The quickest accepted way to turn the red link to your page into a blue one is to set a redirect to the talk page (I do so for a while, not feeling it worth to invest much time for self-description) -- unless you intentionally want that link staying red. Best, and happy editing. Wolfgang 03:42, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

sr:Madre LunaEdit

Do you like Madre Luna? No? I too. On nl-wiki you made link to the articles from sr-wiki. What is the meaning of this edit? Perhaps you tried to explain to me that I edit too much. I agree with you. Above 300 edits on sr-wiki (30% of this edits it was really hard work). From time too time I like to link articles "wihout interwiki". In one case article from sr-wiki existed 4 years without interwiki. In other case article from pt-wiki was not connected with parallel article from es-wiki 1,5 year. But... perhaps I edit too much. Above 20 000 edits in 9 months. I initiated articles on 14 wikis. On en-wiki above 500 articles, pl-wiki above 200, fr-wiki 100 articles. I lost my time? For now I can not stop, but in the future... With regards. Why I cannot edit on your talk page from nl-wiki, we can talk there. I am very occasionaly visit Commons (too much work on wikipedia). With regards. 84.10.17.211 21:04, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Dear Leszek Jańczuk,
I actually do not remember wherefrom I became aware of you, but I think if you are en=2 on COM, it has to be same on any WP project ;) That's why I edited your nl-page. In case you are en=3, please set same value on COM (oh, I just now see that you recently upgraded your en- and ru-levels on COM; I'm BTW in doubt that we share same opinion on language levels).
I-for-myself refuse talk on my nl page, as my nl~0, in other words not worth while to start talking, and, besides, it is not possible to be notified by mail on incoming traffic in nlWP. So, on a project which I might visit even less often than once a month, it would not even be polite to encourage talk. I just now noted your edit on Multichill's talk page and have to add that nobody is (nor was ever) disallowed to edit any of my talk pages, I just ask not to do so unless for serious reason. I'm not at all a chatter.
I am, BTW, aware that one might become dependent on wikipedia ;)

Re: Checking on this OTRSEdit

enWP: FairUse, and more.Edit

From my nl wikipedia talk page Hi Multichill, not being very much active on enWP, I ask you following:

  1. For en:Émile Bernard, I'd like to upload a few (say 5-12) more samples of his non-free oeuvre (he died in 1941, so, it is only free as of 2012). Would such probably be accepted, or should I be reluctant (I mean, restrain to 4-6 pieces)? It is meant to illustrate the artistic interrelationship between v Gogh, Gaugin and Bernard, where B. to some extent was turned down by Gaugin, concerning his "credit" as a major contributor (to which he, Bernard, himself had contributed, after ~1891, by backdating some of his pieces).
  2. I'd like to use e.g. COM:Templates|Size and especially ~Painting (thinking it might be easier for importing files to COM in 2012) on enWP /would like to introduce such there. Do you think such would be accepted, or should I better forget about? Would I have to ask somewhere, to have such discussed first, and if, yes where?
  3. I'm not able to copy tl|Painting myself. Would you help? It should be called en:Template:Art, being useable for any piece of art (including sculptures ... video installations) and possibly be used in addition to en:Template:Non-free use rationale on enWP.
  4. I'd prefer you to answer on Commons:User talk:W.: [or, of course, by mail if you'd prefer ;]] Thanks, [w.] 4 jan 2009 13:17 (CET)

End of post

  1. I'm not really into the fair use policy at enwp, you should probably ask one of the more active enwp users.
  2. You could always transfer it to enwp, but might be worth checking if a you're not creating a duplicate template. Not really sure where to discus this at enwp.
  3. What's wrong with en:Template:Painting?
  4. Please reply here, i'm watching this page now. Why did you post this at my nlwp page by the way? Commons talk too crowded? ;-)

Southerly Clubs DonationEdit

Please see my user page and the link there to our main image category! We have contributed 442 images to Wikimedia Commons so far, all with the same format (as file:Christine Drakenhall.jpg) approved by various other editors. What are you suggesting we do? EmilEikS (talk) 09:32, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm ~aware of the quantity of your uploads, just wanted to notify you by my edit that it would be better to use the template the way it is meant to be used ;] -- unless you have a bot at hand to repair, it's probably best to leave that stuff as-is. It is not very much used, I think. Best, [w.] 08:36, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for replying. I will do my best to update the info according to your kind advice whenever I go in to do any other work on an image page. And I will use the format for any new upoloads. Servus! EmilEikS (talk) 12:42, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
PS I have now updated, one by one, all the images that (to my knowledge) appear in articles on English, Swedish, German or Norwegian WP. EmilEikS (talk) 17:54, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Oil on canvasEdit

I only added the Hungarian form:

Magyar: Olaj, vászon.

What was the problem, I dont know. However, I re-added the text. Baxter9 (talk) 10:17, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

I saw it from the history, and that's why I contacted you. I do think there should be talk about reverts like thisone, which imo are rather disturbing than helping the project. In case multilinguality shall be an issue for COM (of which I'm sure), there must be a way to collapse information like "o/c", unless one wants to fill up the users' screens with "stuff" which is hardly ever needed. Just imagine that some day there will be ~the double quantity of translations... [w.] 07:45, 20 January 2009 (UTC)


No entenc prou bé l'anglès. Je ne comprends pas très bien l'anglais. Io non capisco bene l'inglese. Us demanaria els missatges en català, francès o italià, si us plau.

Everything updated!Edit

I thought you might be extra pleased to know that I have now finally updated each and every Southerly Clubs image according to the proper format you were so kind to inform me of, adding a lot more categories along the way. Cheers! EmilEikS (talk) 22:00, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Company, m'estàs enviant missatges en anglès, llengua que no entenc. Et pregaria que, mentre no me'ls puguis enviar en català, ho facis en francès, si et plau. Gràcies.

Copain, je reçois des messages toujours en anglais, langue que je ne comprends pas. Je voudrais te prier que, tandis tu ne puisses me les envoyer en catalan, veuilles te m'adresser en français, s'il te plait. Merci.--Claudefa (talk) 21:23, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

C'est que la langue générale à commons, c'est l'anglais. Moi je ne parle pas catalan du tout (je ne le comprends qu' un tout-petit peu, grace à français×latin ;), mais le français me va bien. J'essaierai de m'occuper de ton problème. À bientôt, Wolfgang [w.] 03:28, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Vielen Dank, Wolfgang!Edit

An diesen Tagen bin ich nicht in meinem Haus, und ich habe kein Deutschwörterbuch zur Hand (ich brauche es: mir fehlt Vokabular). Deshalb bevorzuge ich bis zum Ende des Sommers, die Kontakte in Französisch zu machen, da ich in dieser Sprache normalerweise das Wörterbuch nicht brauche. Immerhin habe ich im Großen und Ganzen verstanden, was du mir zeigst, und so werde ich es von jetzt an von jetzt machen. Ich bitte dich um Verzeihung, wenn es auf Deutsch Fehler gibt. Es ist eine Sprache, die mir gefällt, und es würde mir gefallen, sie sprechen zu lernen. Im Moment habe ich Grundbegriffe von Grammatik, und mit einem Wörterbuch kostet es mich nicht viel, die Sprache zu verstehen, aber natürlich ist mein Niveau sehr elementar. Vielen Dank!--Claudefa (talk) 17:36, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

  1. Gern geschehen. Mein Vorschlag war ohnedies, dass Du mich auf Französisch kontaktierst und ich lieber auf Deutsch antworten möchte -- wäre doch eine charmante Form ;) -- Ich glaube übrigens, das Wesentliche gesagt zu haben, mit einer wesentlichen Ausnahme, die mir erst letzte Nacht einfiel:
  2. Das Template, das MultichillBot Dir gelegentlich sendet, hat eine "Autotranslate"-Funktion: Wenn Du Deine Benutzersprache auf fr einstellst (Préférences), kannst Du den Inhalt auf fr lesen! Ich glaube, dass auch andere häufig von Bots gesendete Botschaften eher auf fr als auf ca zur Verfügung stellen (weshalb ich als meine eigene Benutzersprache hier en einstelle (das Original ist immer en, eine Übersetzung kann erst hinterher vorliegen). Ich habe mir übrigens soeben erlaubt, auf Deiner D-Seite (Diskussionsseite) ein Inhaltsverzeichnis zu erzwingen -- das spart Nerven ;)
  3. Dein Deutsch empfinde ich durchaus "de-2", aber vielleicht ist es dennoch besser, es de-1 zu deklarieren, damit nicht allzuviel anstrengender Schriftverkehr hereinkommt. Aus demselben Grund lasse ich auf meinen Seiten en-2, fr-2, obwohl en-3, fr-3 genauer wäre ;)
  4. Dein letztes Mail habe ich vorgestern beantwortet, die Rück-Antwort eilt nicht, insbesondere, da Du in Ferien bist.
  5. Zuletzt erlaubte ich mir noch, Deinen Edit (oben) auf "de-4" zu korrigieren: In der Hoffnung, Dir dadurch nützliche Hinweise zu geben, wo genau scheinbare Gallizismen (aus dem Französischen, möglicherweise auch aus dem Lateinischen stammende Redewendungen, Ausdrucksweisen, Satz-Stellungen) Dich als ~frankophon ausweisen ;)) -- siehe dazu die Versionsgeschichte ("historique") dieser Seite.
Lieben Gruß und eine schöne Zeit, [w.] 08:43, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Template de-versionEdit

There's already a de-version of the template you've told me. So.. what's the problem? Sorry, but I haven't really understood. --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 11:02, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Ooops. &, sorry for a while: I'm quite a way "OFF" WP&COM, at this date. I think I proposed (wanted to propose) an improvement, a while ago, but the de-version as-is does not seem THAT bad, today. I'd possibly re-contact you as soon as I'd really be "back" ;]] -- Best, [w.] 17:36, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

PatruBOT mistakeEdit

Sorry, I didn't answer before because I can't modify the behaviour of the bot; I just run a copy of the original AVBOT from my server to "help" AVBOT with a missing function. To report mistakes, please leave a message in es:Usuario:AVBOT/Errores. -jem- (talk) 00:12, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I might do so, in the future -- as you might have noticed, my Spanish is Babel~0.213 ;)) and I disliked to edit a rather "official" error page. To me it seemed that you were the owner of the bot.
Admittedly, I had added some "Christmas greeting" to the article, which, by itself, would not be "really" appropriate ;]] -- so, the bot was not really wrong. Maybe, you enjoy the picture gallery of de:Furoshiki
It is imo quite interesting that Austrian Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a freak and precursor of environment protection, created his furoshiki-design about one decade (or even earlier, I still do not have the exact date) before the Japanese minister for Environment did similar. But I would be unable to edit properly the Spanish article. Maybe, someone es~4 speaker with de=1, minimum, might do so. See also Category:Furoshiki, for instance. -- Best, Wolfgang [w.] 09:08, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Rename requestEdit

Thank you. Your edit was manually moved to file talk. [w.] 07:45, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

on vGEdit

Wolfgang, I know you are fond of van Gogh. May I ask you to look at this couple of paintings. Which is really from NG? Thanks! 4649 02:22, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I indeed am fond of vG, but I'm sorry to inform you that as-of-now [and for quite a while] I do not care very much about trying to categorize his work more precisely. It would be a "Sisyphus" job, but I am not going to live that long ... ;]]. Other editors overwrote some of my "defaultsorts", which were complete in 2009-01.
"It's a f*cking wiki," and, as of now, I prefer to waste my time on more interesting "stuff". Any ~idiot owning a couple of catalogues might repair at any time. Sorry to say so.
I suggest to consult David Brooks who created the most competent website on vG, http://www.vggallery.com/index.html and whose work was stolen eversince. To be more precise, I feel ashamed to be one of the thieves "borrowing" for COMMONS.
Besides, I'm aware that vG is dead for quite a while and, with high probability, would not care ;]]
Best, Wolfgang [w.] 15:01, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply! 4649 13:24, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
I think I also remember you as being "fond of vG", too. Sorry that, at this time, I feel absolutely unable for more help. cu, [w.] 13:33, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
BTW: Are you aware that he claimed to sign by just Vincent becaus he was [for good reason] sure that the French wouldn't ever be able to pronounce his family name correctly? They'd even have a problem in pronouncing "Wolfgang" ;))

Flag of the Austrian PresidentEdit

The flag is not a hoax. It is described as the "Standard for a Member of the Federal Government or the Federal President (Stander für ein Mitglied der Bundesregierung oder den Herrn Bundespräsidenten)" on the web page for the Austrian Federal Ministry for National Defence, and apparently has been used on two patrol vessels of the Danube flotilla of the Austrian Military. Regards, Fry1989 (talk) 19:53, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

In this case, I'd feel extremely sorry and have to apologize. I never-ever saw thisone style, last 60 years, and I am still uncertain whether there even might be an error on the official page. This square-type standard anyways is, IMO, over- or mis-represented in wikipedias: There is no real 'Danube flotilla' for quite a while.
I also did not find any source mentionned on occasion of any of your uploads of this style. Would you be as kind as to note the precise link, where you found it / where anyone can check it, on the files talk page? I think we should move further talks to that 'better' place.
Thanks, Wolfgang, from Vienna, Austria.
(Note that today is Austria's National holiday, and I obviously was over-emotional, yesterday, especially after having found out that the up-to-then only available and technically poor picture of Austria's most-beloved and honourable president EVER, Category:Rudolf Kirchschläger shows him in talk with more-than-dubious Romanian en:Nicolae Ceauşescu. [This applies to most wikipedia projects BUT enWP, where 'Fair Use' is allowed. Austrian officials which I approached on this issue were too narrow-minded to 'react' adequately, up to now.])
Sorry again, [w.] 08:45, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Hello, W.!

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.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Beloved "Nikbot", there rather seems to be a problem of WP, concerning such files. The "just-now" edited part of some ridiculous map, scratched from ~anywhwere, is just derivated work-of-some-derivated-work. Maybe it helps to declare such as so-called "derivated work" (which I recently did). Best, Wolfgang, [w.] 21:06, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Hallo lieber W. (aka Wolfgang), freut mich von dir zu lesen. Der gute Nikbot wird dir nicht antworten und auch für ihn wird (anders als beim BLUbot in der de.Wikipedia) niemand antworten - daher der Verweis auf den Helpdesk bei Fragen.
1. Bitte vermeide zukünftig gif - speichere alles, was kein Foto ist, in png. Gif kann nur 256 Farben und ist veraltet. Png ist gewissermaßen das Nachfolgeformat. Optimal wäre natürlich, wenn du das svg als svg weiterbearbeiten würdest - z.B. in inkscape.
2. Beim Hochladen von abgeleiteten Werken (wie deiner Karte hier) verwendest du am besten derivativeFX - über Commons:Hochladen bei Auswahl von "Es ist ein abgeleitetes Werk einer Datei aus Commons." erreichbar. Das habe ich nun nachgeholt und damit die Beschreibung angepasst. Der Nikbot hat nur "bemeckert", dass keine Lizenzvorlage da war.
Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 23:37, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

ad_1. "Im Prinzip" hast Du vollkommen Recht [Radio Erivan lässt grüßen ;],
A.B.E.R: Dass ein Bot nicht zurückschreibt, ist mit klar. Ich wollte zunächst [M]eine Anmerkung hier "verankern" [wobei jeder halbwegs Informierte weiß, dass derlei auch_hier jederzeit "spurlos" gelöscht werden könnte]
Ansonsten: Sorry, GIF ist seit etlichen Jahren ein hier anerkanntes "offenes" Format (zuvor schrieb ich PNGs, meist unter anderen Nicks ;). Da ich ein veraltetes PS6 nutze und davon zeitlebens wohl nicht mehr abgehe, wären diesbezügliche PNGs größer als GIFs (und enthielten keinerlei Mehrwert). SVG kann der PS6 sowieso nicht. Abgesehen davon ist der "Mehr-Wert" sinnloser Vergrößerung in solchen Fällen mir nicht erkennbar. Ich verweise diesbezüglich auf meinen Kommentar, Anno Schnee [Hochdeutsch: Die SVGitis trage ich nicht mit]. Dass ich selber ein Auslaufmodell bin, bestreite ich nicht.
Ansonsten ist das Thema/Lemma "Augartenspitz" dzt. in deWP offensichtlich strittig, und ich wollte mit Minimalaufwand dem Initiator des Lemmas "einen kleinen Gefallen tun", weil ich die_Sache_&_das Lemma für OK halte. Siehe dazu die DS.
Falls der Artikel nicht in den nächsten Tagen "gekippt" wird [wobei wahrscheinlich politische Gründe mehr Rollen spielen würden als enzyklopädische], und meine Gesundheit es mir erlaubt, möchte ich per Nummerierung noch auf etliche Details "meines" [lächerlichen!!] Detailplans verweisen [d.h., GIF mit GIF überschreiben] -- bis dahin wäre also eine Übertragung nach SVG mindesten-vollkommen sinnlos. ;)
ad_2 -- (und überhaupt) danke ich Dir herzlichST. Wolfgang. [w.] 07:11, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Falls Du noch ein wenig Scherz verträgst (Ein Hr. Mag. Scherz, "Turnograph" war zeitweise unser Turn&GeograPFie Lehrer. Zu dieser Zeit wurde das Buch Dummheit ist gefährlich im SCHERZ-Verlag publiziert ;). [w.]_&_;)
Gegen diese umfassende Erläuterung deines Handelns sind meine Argumente völligst machtlos und ich wünsche dir Gesundheit und frohes Schaffen, wie es beliebt. :-) Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 13:42, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Du hast es mehrfach geschriebenEdit

dass du weder gesprächig noch jung und neu bist. Bis auf gesprächig trifft das auch auf mich zu. Aber nachdem ich mir deine Disku durchgelesen habe - inkl. der Gründe für deine Sperre (ach wie kann ich das nachvollziehen) und auch dein Œuvre, hast du mich schon neugierig gemacht. Hättest du nicht Lust, uns beim nächsten Stammtisch aufzusuchen? In WP bin ich ja oft grantig - was mich nicht gerade zum Liebling er teutonischen Kollegen macht - aber bei unseren Treffen, da bin ich gerne und völlig gelöst. Denn es gibt genug unter uns, die einfach nur einen Abend Spaß haben wollen. Und den haben wir. Hier gibts die Infos dazu.

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, W.!

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.

File:Vienna 2010-11-20 'Kinderrechte' Smart Mob 043 All those formally granted children's rights -- WHERE ARE THEY.jpgEdit

Hallo!

Von den 5 auf dem Bild [4] abgebildeten Personen sind gerade mal Franz Prokop und vermutlich auch Gernot Rammer Personen der Zeitgeschichte. Dies trifft aber nicht für die beiden Kameraleute und den Sohn Prokops zu. Eine Einwilligung der Abgebildeten ist aus der Freigabe nicht zu erkennen, nach österreichischem Recht wäre das Bild folglich zu löschen. Könntest Du die Freigabe nachreichen? Grüße Marcus (talk) 16:51, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

NFU, lieber MKir 13;
ich war, wie nachvollziehbar, bis heute "geraume Zeit" WP-offline [und werde auch in Bälde eher selten "vorbeischauen"], finde aber das genannte Bild immer noch vor. Ob's "herinnen" bleibt oder nicht, ist mir ehrlich gestanden nicht wichtig genug um da MAIL-mäßig aktiv zu werden. lg, [w.] 12:43, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
Nachdem ich das "Problem" hier gesehen habe, könnte ich zumindest die beiden Kameraleute "wegschneiden", wenn es dir nichts ausmacht. Das Kind wegzuschneiden würde das Bild wohl zerstören. --Túrelio (talk) 12:42, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
Soeben gemerkt: "it's a wiki". ICH hielt die Kameraleute für "BILD_relevant" im Sinn des von mir Gemeinten, kann aber mit dem Beschnitt leben. [w.] 13:03, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
NB: Da es sich um die Dokumentation einer öffentlichen Versammlung handelt(e), schien mir das "Persönlichkeitrecht" etwa anderer Anwesender nicht als Hinderungsgrund, "Beiwerk" auf dem Bild zu belassen. Den Kameraleuten, sofern sie sich nicht drüber amüsierten, wär's wohl AUCH am Arsch vorbeigegangen. Sind aber nicht wikPÄD veranlagt, soweit mir bekannt. [w.] 13:17, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

File:Vienna 2012-06-02 - Xi - Thomas Declaude 066e.jpgEdit

Hallo W., ich weiß nicht, ob du immer "uploader" ins Author-Feld deiner Fotos setzt. Ich halte das bei CC-BY-lizensierten Werken, bei denen Nutzer ja die vom Urheber vorgegebene Namensnennung exakt einhalten müssen, für nicht sehr zielführend, weil es keine zuverlässige Zuordnung erlaubt und eine lizenzwidrige Nutzung begünstigt. --Túrelio (talk) 12:39, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Also, Frage: WAS sollte ich stattdessen Deiner Meinung nach ins Feld Author schreiben?
ICH uploade, ICH lizensiere, und die Lizenz scheint mir "hinreichend eindeutig".
(EIN-eindeutig, wie mein seinerzeitiger Mathematiklehrer (+) korrekt zu formulieren pflegte ;)
Da Du mir wikimäßig seit ~7_Jahren ein Begriff bist, nehme ich Deine Rück-Antwort gewiss ernst.
Frühere uploads entsprechend "nach"zubessern überließe ich jedoch einem bot, falls dies dzt. unabdingbar schiene.
Bin vermutlich morgen wieder online. lg, [w.] 12:57, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
PS:
Da ich keine Rechtsanwälte beschäftige, habe ich VORLÄUFIG nicht vor, etwaige "lizenzwidrige Nutzung" (die mir eh kaum bekannt würde) strafrechtlich verfolgen zu lassen ;))
PPS: Das wiki-übliche Geschwätz "um Kaisers Bart" halte übrigens ICH nicht für sinnvoll. nfu, lg, [w.] 13:06, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
Es geht dabei nicht um richtig oder falsch. Es hängt auch davon ab, wie sehr du dich darüber ärgern würdest, wenn irgendjemand dein Foto benutzt, ohne dich bzw. deine gewünschte Attribution zu nennen. (Mein Motiv, andere Benutzer darauf hinzuweisen, liegt darin, den Anteil korrekter Nachnutzungen zu steigern.) Durch eindeutige Angaben kann man eine korrekte Attribution bei der Nachnutzung (vermutlich) erleichtern/begünstigen. Nehmen wir z.B. File:Vienna 2010-11-20 'Kinderrechte' Smart Mob 043 All those formally granted children's rights -- WHERE ARE THEY.jpg, von dem ich jetzt mal "frech" (s.o.) einen crop gemacht habe, um das mögliche Persönlichkeitsrechtsproblem zu minimieren. In der Tabelle unterhalb der Beschreibung stehe jetzt ich als Uploader, was für den Crop auch sachlich richtig ist. Trotzdem bin ich natürlich nicht der Urheber/Fotograf und käme auch garnicht auf die Idee das zu beanspruchen. Ein ahnungsloser Nachnutzer könnte jetzt mit bestem Gewissen "Túrelio" als Urheber anführen, sofern er nicht einfach "uploader" schreibt. Tatsächlich hast du bei diesem Bild aber [W.] als Author (Urheber) angegeben und in der Lizenzvorlage sogar deinen vermutlichen Realnamen, so dass das fiktive Problem nicht auftreten kann. Ob ein Nachnutzer nun aber W. oder deinen Realnamen angibt, bleibt damit ihm überlassen. Quintessenz: wenn dir das (mein 2. Satz) eh relativ egal ist, brauchst du garnichts zu ändern. Ansonsten wäre es nicht schlecht, wenn du dich für eine eindeutige Attributionsvorgabe (z.B. "W.", dein Realname, o.a.) bei deinen Uploads entscheiden würdest. Nachträglich ändern würde ich höchstens Uploads der jüngeren Zeit. Ausnahme: in Fällen, in denen du ins Author-Feld "uploader", in die Lizenzvorlage aber deinen Realname oder W. geschrieben hast, könntest du den Author-Eintrag einfach der Lizenzvorlage anpassen, im Sinne von Konsistenz. Das wäre m.E. auch bei länger zurückliegenden Uploads vertretbar, weil es ja keine echte Änderung der Attribution darstellt. --Túrelio (talk) 13:19, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
Lieben Dank für Deine ausführliche Antwort, ich werde versuchen sie in Zukunft zu beherzigen. Frühere Uploads (auch die heutigen) greife ich bloß noch an, wenn mir ZUFÄLLIG inhaltliche Fehler auffallen/gemeldet werden [was durchaus auch vorkommt], d.h. Bildbeschreibung oder Kategorisierung ERHEBLICH korrektur- oder ergänzungsbedürftig sind
-- bei aller Liebe (naja, gelegentlich auch Hassliebe) zu WP und COM bin ich nicht der Feind meiner eigenen Lebenszeit, behaupte ich zumindest ;)).
Da ich auch einen Useracount unter Klarname habe
(
das ist eine längere Geschichte aus der Zeit ~3_Tage_vor_SUL, als eine Rotznase ~2_Dutzend Nicks unter MEINEM damaligen DE, EN, FR und COM-Nick in diversen anderen fremsprachigen wikis anlegte
[kann bloß ein Pennäler gewesen sein, der mir nicht grün war
-- DER hatte sich etliche Stunden dafür "engagiert", um mich ebendort zu blamieren oder nach Möglichkeit sperren zu lassen],
)
schien's mir, bislang, "hüpfte-wie-hadschte".
lg, [w.] 13:55, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
Nachtrag, @Turelio: Dem NACH-Nutzer ist's N.I.C.H.T überlassen, "w."_oder_den_Klarnamen anzugeben: Die ausgewiesene Lizenz meint AUSDRÜCKLICH den Klarnamen. lg, [w.] 11:56, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

HalloEdit

Hallo Wolfgang, beide sind wir nicht mehr jung und beide sind wir schon einige Jahre bei Wikipedia und Commons und trotzdem sind wir uns trotz Heimat nicht weit von einander auch hier noch nicht über den Weg gelaufen. Deswegen möchte ich die Gelegenheit für ein Hallo nutzen. Vielleicht hast du einmal bei de:WP:Wien bei einem Stammtisch einmal Interesse. Fotografisch ist das nächste Projekt de:Portal:Essen und Trinken/Wien 2013 oder auch die Politiker in den de:Wikipedia:Landtagsprojekten. Ich würde mich freuen neue "alte" Wikipedianer" kennenzulernen. --gruß aus dem Wienerwald K@rl (talk) 16:32, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Lieber Karl,
danke für Deine Einladung, aber danke, bislang nein. Dzt. (seit Längerem) besuche ich keinerlei Stammtische und beteilige mich auch nicht an "Projekten". Sofern vom von mir gelegentlich produzierten Bildmaterial mir was für die Öffentlichkeit "sinnvoll" scheint lade ich es hoch und bringe mich dann öftermal in kürzestmöglicher Form auch in betreffende Artikel ein -- damit hat sich's aber auch schon.
Sei mir bitte nicht gram, SO verläuft dzt. mein Leben, und möglicherweise auch noch der Rest davon.
Dem "tsui" Manfred Werner bin ich irgendwann 1-2-3mal über'n Weg gelaufen, da wir dieselben Ereignisse "fotografisch wahrnahmen", und es war auch "recht nett", aber "pflegen" werde ich dies nicht.
Mit liebem Gruß, [w.] 18:15, 16 August 2013 (UTC) [Text wird nach längstens 72h archiviert.]
Hallo Wolfgang, danke für deine Antwort, die ich natürlich auch respektiere. Für mich ist Wikipedia auch ein Teil des real life und nicht nur allein und hinter dem Bildschirm. Aus diesem Grund auch die Frage. Weiterhin viel Spaß und schönen Sonntag K@rl (talk) 12:53, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

ArchiveBotEdit

Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed. For the time being, I have volunteered to operate a MiszaBot clone (running the exact same code). With that said, your input would be appreciated at Commons:Bots/Requests/ArchiveBot 1. Regards, FASTILY 07:40, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Sad to hear that MiszaBot seems to have leaved. YOU're more than welcome to run anything appropriate. Best, & have a good time, [w.] 08:41, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Romanian WikipediaEdit

Hello! I just saw your edit at the Romanian article of Torstein Raaby. It is a bit unclear to me. You erased the name (Sf. Olav), but not the fact that he received the Royal Norwegian Cross (Crucea Regală Norvegiană). If instead he received the Norwegian War Cross with Sword (Crucea de Război Norvegiană cu Spade), please correct the text. As you noticed, I wrote the Romanian translation for both expressions.

If you intend to reply, please do it on my ro.wikipedia or en.wikipedia page. Thank you. --Wintereu (talk) 17:40, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm going to do so. As enWP declared him to be of "St. Olavs Order", but no mention of such in Norwegian is found, I asked the "DET KONGELIGE HOFF" and recently was answered that he definitely was not awarded with thisone.
My further request, whether "Norwegian War Cross with Sword" is ascertained, was not answered up to now, but such is highly probable. Best, [w.] 18:28, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
