re Image:PeriodicoTrazos.jpgEdit

They give me permissions to distribute this image but not to modify it, so i think that it is ok to be deleted, does there is not anohter license that grants distribution but not modification? Thanks.

TUL? TUL???? That's the worst shortcut ever, dude. :) How about COM:TOOLS? I always think shortcuts should be obvious above all else. Otherwise they're not very short. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 06:09, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Monteros ImageEdit

Hi I saw you tagged a photo I uploaded as "unknown source". I made a mistake. I thought "all rights released" and "public domain" were the same. I took the photo and I've already deleted "public domain" in the picture's page. Is there anything else I need to add? Jlazarte

No, it's my mistake. I misread it, thinking you wrote "all rights reserved" (the opposite) instead of "all rights released". And because of me copying and pasting text into the edit summary, I did not catch my error until now. Sorry. Zzyzx11 20:54, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Image:Aichi Expo 2005 Hamasaki Ayumi.jpgEdit

I've already added the sources for image Image:Aichi Expo 2005 Hamasaki Ayumi.jpg, I though that saying that was GNU material from the english wikipedia was enough but i was wrong obviously. Clouded 23:39, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

On en:Image:Aichi Expo Hamasaki Ayumi.jpg, you cited the source as http://japan.people.com.cn/. So far, I do not see anything that says that this image has been released under the GNU Free Documentation License. Unless I see it, I might have to put it up for deletion, both here and on en.wikipedia. Zzyzx11 00:01, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Cosmo y Wanda.jpgEdit

Lo que pasa es que yo La obtení de La Wikipedia en Inglés, recién después de subirla leí algo así como que era copyright de historietas y dibujos animados (No sé mucho de inglés), pero si está allá, ¿Por qué no acá?. Walterzum (Nota:Aunque no me he registrado sí soy yo, no me registré por falta de tiempo.

Re: Image:Logo_commonpedia.png.Edit

Many thanks for your interest. I have specified where we found the image: now there exists a link to the website where we got it, and the terms of use for it. With respect to the license, please, notice that the image is a logo. Thank you very much. Best wishes. --EizoOlderog 18:06, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Answering your comment on Ravanchol talk page, as you haven't answered me at my user talk page: We know that your policy doesn't allow a CC by-nd, but please note that we are claiming for the protection given by the mention right. This universal right allows us to mention even protected work in order to comment or talk about it, mainly in educational and research environments as Wikipedia is. So perhaps we've got the wrong way; perhaps we must directly upload this logo to Wikipedia without Wikimedia Commons taking part. Please, is this the right way? Thank you very much. Best wishes. --EizoOlderog 16:36, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Image:Piratey transparent background.svgEdit

Why GFDL? I mean: if the original was donated to the public domain and there is no original artwork involved in this version, it must be under the public domain. Or am I wrong? --Dodo 12:18, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Yes, the original image, en:Image:Piratey.jpg, is in fact tagged as PD. However, I used Image:Piratey, vector version.svg as my direct source, and therefore copied and pasted directly from that image description page; that is currently marked as GFDL, so I also made Image:Piratey transparent background.svg GFDL too. Zzyzx11 15:19, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
All right. I still think that vectorizing the original PD image is not original artwork and it should be considered PD, but alas, it's not your fault. Thanks. Regards. --Dodo 15:29, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
With respect to the comment by Dodo in some cases the archive format is an essential part of the artwork. --EizoOlderog 16:56, 1 December 2006 (UTC)


Friedrich SilcherEdit

The picture of Friedrich Silcher and his wife was created in 1829. As the painter as dead since over 100 years I doubt there is a copyright infringement at hand.--Tresckow 03:17, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

If that is the case, please indicate its license status by entering one one of the specific copyright tags listed on Commons:Copyright tags. Thanks. Zzyzx11 05:08, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

You will be running for admin sometime soon... right? I am sick of seeing your name on my watchlist :) (if you want a nominator) --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 15:01, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Zzyzx11, congratulations! You now have the the rights of administrator on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other SYSOPS, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net.

"Caltrans" stands for the California Department of Transportation, a government agency in California. If that is not "a work of the state of California", then I do not know what is. Zzyzx11 19:19, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Image:Trolley Square Mall.jpgEdit

Hello! I'd like you to delete this image. I uploaded it thinking it was attached to the CC-by-sa-2.5 license in the page 20minutos.es, but I further read and the image was not originally from the website. Thus, it's copyright infringement (to a local newspaper of Utah, can't remember well..). Thanks Rock 'n Roll 22:34, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Scottie PippenEdit

Could you delete this pic? I think the flickr user either changed the copyright status or I just screwed up because it says copyrighted. Thanks in advance. Quadzilla99 12:43, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

This pic. I can't remember for certain but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have dl'd it otherwise. I could have just made a mistake though and since it was never reviewed, I would suggest to delete it. Quadzilla99 02:42, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
Since you are unsure, I have to follow the proper guidelines of tagging it as a possibly unfree Flickr image. Zzyzx11 02:55, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
...because the image is being used on other Wikipedias, such as the French and German versions. Zzyzx11 02:57, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

MistakeEdit

I mistakenly gave this pic the wrong title, it was taken in 2006 not 2007 could you move it to Ovechkin 2006.jpg? Also while you're at it, would you mind looking it over and verifying it? (checking the license against it on flickr I mean and cetifying it as correct) Quadzilla99 08:10, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Never mind I just uploaded it again with the correct title, can you just delete the old one? Quadzilla99 08:14, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

The images of User:TonyWWE1Edit

I have tagged each of his images for speedy deletion because near as I can tell he just did a google image search for images and then uploaded them under non-existent free licenses.

You reviewed one of his images from flickr as having an invalid license however in the process removed my tag for deletion. The image was uploaded only a day ago along with his other images and near as I can tell all of them are copyrighted. Can you take a look at his uploads and give a second opinion?

In addition to which it seems he had another account at User:TonyWWE who, judging from his wiped talk page, also uploaded a tonne of copyvios while the last image remaining that wasn't purged is sourced to a wikipedia fork.

somebody watkins who worked for beano magazine in britain wrote a strip called the gasworks gang for another british outfit called cor!! comic in the 1970's and like the Giles cartoons in one of the british newspapers there was a clever parody of all things british . My in-laws are a living testament to Watkins' wit and skill and many others who have married into an english family would doubtless appreciate this ... this isnt vandalism its an information request for scanned images, the copyright must surely have expired. please allow time for someone to respond before this effort is deleted too --144.138.115.81

What image(s) or page(s) are you specifically referring to? I frequently delete and/or revert a number of images and pages frequently, so unless you can give me the specific image or page name, I cannot help you at this time. Thanks. Zzyzx11 04:26, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
If you are referring to the The Gasworks Gang page, please remember that the Wikimedia Commons is targeted at media files such as photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text and video clips. Wikimedia Commons does not contain text articles like encyclopedia articles, textbooks, news, word definitions — or in this case, personal essays and such.

Edward VIEdit

Beautiful painting, but two things should be noted: The artist mistakenly added at least 20 years to Edwards'age by giving him the muscular legs of a 20 something man and then topped it off by endowing 8 yr old Edward with a huge codpiece shown poking out through all his finery! Frank 3/14

Which particular Edward VI of England image are you referring to? Zzyzx11 16:40, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Protecting images referenced from EN main pageEdit

Thanks for your efforts to protect these images from vandalism. I'm surprised images inside of the articles on the main page aren't also vandalism targets.

In the long run, this whole process of identifying and protecting things because they appear or are linked to from the main page needs to be automated. Davidwr2 15:28, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

missing protection noticeEdit

Hi, it would be nice if you could put a protection notice (like the one on User:Zzyzx11/En main page) on the image description pages. I, a normal user, reworked the poor picture Image:Alvin Meyer3.jpg and tried to upload it. It failed with an error about missing permissions. Work for nothing... Nevertheless I will replace the image when it's unprotected again... Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 18:52, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for the inconvenience, but that does essentially defeat the purpose of using the cascading protection of User:Zzyzx11/En main page to automatically protect images rotated onto the "Today's featured article", "On this day", and "Today's featured picture" of the main page of the English Wikipedia without having to maintain the protection/unprotection of images here on a daily basis. For a complete explanation on why I created this page and how it works, see User talk:Zzyzx11/En main page.
What do you suggest? For me to add the protection tag when I update the list every few days or so ... even when it will not appear on the en.wikipedia main page for 48-72 hours or so? Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 05:01, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Smith SystemEdit

Could you please explain why this image classification structure page was deleted? I moved this information off Category:Pteridophyta to parallel all the other such pages that are used in conjunction with Template:Taxonavigation. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:57, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

It seemed to me that it was purely a page in the main gallery namespace that did not have any images or media files on it, just a bullet list of links and concepts (It is one of the options listed on MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown). Remember that Wikimedia Commons is a "media file repository" and that mere text articles and lists are not allowed.
However, I might be willing to restore it if are there any other similar image classification structure pages – without any images, sounds, or other media files – that have existed for some time. That is the first time I have seen one before (which is why primarily why I deleted it), and I do not recall any description of it on a Commons namespace page other than routine disambiguation page with {{disambig}} tags. As I take a quick scan of Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Taxonavigation, the pages in the main namespace listed there seem to have at least one image or media file on them. So it would be helpful to explain what your objective was. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (talk) 23:54, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
But did you look at the bottom of the Template:Taxonavigation description page itself? This is where there are several other such guides. There are many competing systems of plant classification, and a guide delineating where items are classified is thus an index useful for users looking to categorize an image. That is why all these pages exist. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:45, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Looking at the main namespace pages listed on Template:Taxonavigation#Which classification, the Cronquist System page has at least one image file posted, and APG II has several ... so those two pages would qualify IMO.
As for Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, I noticed in the deletion log and the page history that I originally deleted that page at 08:19, 29 September 2007 (UTC) for not following COM:PS. The page was then recreated on 30 December 2007. A few hours later, based on this discussion, another admin deleted the page for the exact same reason as mine, then was persuaded by the creator to undelete it.
I disagree with the undeletion of that page; or the explanations provided either on that admin's talk page, Talk:Cronquist System, or Talk:Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy. This the Wikimedia Commons, not Wikipedia. IMO, the content should either be moved to a subpage of Template:Taxonavigation, images or media files should be posted on those gallery pages, or the links on Template:Taxonavigation#Which classification should be converted to interwiki links pointing to the respective Wikipedia articles.
Since we disagree on whether the text alone, without any media files, should be in the main namespace, the proper course of action would either to pick one of the options I suggested, or post a request on COM:UNDEL for a full discussion. Because even if I blindly undelete Smith System, there might be another admin who will delete it again citing COM:PS, just like what has happened to the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy page. Regards. Zzyzx11 (talk) 04:52, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, moving to Wikipedia would not help Commons classification. The links are designed to allow users to browse for the location the image should be placed, then make one click to get there for verification. They also serve as a handy one-page navigation, rather than having to floow down individual links in the taxonaigation at the tops of pages. Moving everything to subpages of Taxonavigation sounds like a good idea, but I still can't make any of the necessary changes. An admin will have to do it all because of page protection. Of course there are images here that could be added to the page as well, making it a gallery page, but it would have to be undeleted first. (And then an admin would still have to link in the taxonavigation). --EncycloPetey (talk) 05:33, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. I have added the four images of the Smith system phylogeny. --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:37, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

edit conflict Looks like this was also a problem in mid-2007 too, see Commons talk:WikiProject Plants#Deletion of the Cronquist System article.

Nevertheless, as you saw, I have undeleted the page and moved it to Template:Taxonavigation/Smith System. I also moved Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy to the template namespace, and made what I hope the necessary changes to Template:Taxonavigation/classification. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 00:40, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I moved Smith System back now. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (talk) 00:43, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Olympic rings.svgEdit

Can you protect Image:Olympic rings.svg here? You can delete the enwiki version when you're done, obviously. RockMFR (talk) 16:30, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Restoring List of Fabaceae speciesEdit

The assumption I make here that I am not comfortable with is that you have an experience with taxonomy. To know if something fits into the project scope implies knowledge of the something (being the basis for my assumption), let me know if this is an incorrect assumption. Please see Template_talk:Taxonavigation#classical_.2F_phylogenical_classification and explain what parts of that extra list (too many to go onto the category page) do not fit within the project scope and keep in mind that the Cronquist system is being used on several of the wikipedias. -- carol (talk) 12:14, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

"Acrocarpus" could you look on that list and see if that genus is there? I need to know if the old yet still in use taxonomy should be included so I can add the correct conditionals to the template. Thank you for your patience, assistance and understanding which will be required until the point that "links to" also shows things at the other wikipedia -- although that will be a pain as those are typically articles and not simple lists of things that should go into catagories or galleries.... -- carol (talk) 12:55, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
I find requesting that a human visually look at a list to tell me that something is there so that I should know how to put all of the phylogenical classification categories upon them to be eh, kind of funny for a way to work in the 21st century but since the taxonomy is within the scope (as it is being used on several of the wikipedia including English wikipedia) I will work with your decision here. Please look for Acrocarpus, Cercidium, Erythrophleum, Erythrostemon, Heteroflorum, Mezoneuron, Mezonevron, Poincianella, Pomaria, Sclerolobium, Tara (Fabaceae) also. There is 430 genera on that list, btw. It seems as if the software should be allowed to function. In my mind, the Commons should reflect the decisions that were made by English wikipedia that cause articles to exist and not the way that decisions were made <-- my opinion which is all too easy to now have the time for as I am asking that a human look at a list when the software would have just showed me this information. -- carol (talk) 13:05, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
It would be included on the category page if it contained less than 200 genera/items. One system has those items linked directly to the family and other systems have nested them. In addition, one system has some families that do not exist any longer in the newer systems and this family is one of them. So the list is of genera (or should be) that were included in a family which has become much larger now in newer systems. About self-promotion, I did not make the list which is what makes it wrong for it to be included in my personal stuff. Similar to Category:Ayacop/Blanco which that User uploaded a lot of impressive, valuable and needed images here -- the category makes it look as if that upload is actually authorship? I suspect that a similar problem occurred then where the reason a category kept being deleted was due to a gallery existing. It seems very immature.
I also am of the mind that slapping a few images onto a useful page should not qualify it educationally. If there were words explaining the reason that the list exists other than the fact it was made by a person and used here and other places then it would be an article. If it had less than 200 items it would be included where it is more useful on the category it represents. However, 430 items is just too much even with the javascript that hides them -- I usually have javascript un-enabled. Also, there seems to be some administrative conflicts of self in play here -- one of the administrators whose hand has been in this has 1)recently become an administrator 2)showed signs of not being available due to real life things 3)after showing those signs, forgot how to do some of the manual tasks the user used to know how to do.
In summary, 1)I did not make the list so it hardly belongs in my personal space; 2)The tradition here seems to be a gallery vs category war and not anything involving education and the plant taxonomy reflects this; 3)Just because an administrator showed a knowledge of taxonomy a few months ago should imply that they have a knowledge of it now but other things have been forgotten so I suggest that this is not a good default if that is to be considered.
Also, the only thing I read here was Herby thanking you for watching the Recent Changes list. Probably, most of your decisions, I would thank you also. -- carol (talk) 14:50, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Based on your reasonable reason that the file size of the list is currently too big to be including onto another category page, I will restore it temporarily for now, but I cannot guarantee that another admin will come along, disagree with me, and delete it again. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 15:09, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Apodora speedy deleteEdit

I disagreed with this idea, as I'm under the impression that creating empty categories at Wikimedia Commons is a common and accepted practice. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it be helpful to create such categories in advance, so that anyone who eventually contributes such images that we do not yet have will have a place to put them? BTW, if you keep to the rules, disagreeing with a Speedy Delete request is certainly more work than creating one! Cheers, --Jwinius (talk) 11:39, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Where did you get that impression? My understanding, as specifically stated on COM:D#Speedy deletion, is that a category with no content or containing only a parent category can be speedy deleted. Zzyzx11 (talk) 14:56, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
You're right that a "category with no content or containing only a parent category" can be a candidate for speedy delete, but I suppose the question should be whether deleting an empty category is always a good thing or not. I got the idea of creating empty categories from carol. She recently showed my how she uses custom templates to create the taxnavs and category tags for categories, although I've now also used them for gallery pages. She has apparently created very many empty categories for plants using a system that supports multiple taxonomies. It's impressive! I haven't gone that far yet, but the idea seems appealing. Her arguments for creating the necessary categories in advance, based on taxonomic structures, were good enough for me, so I've done a little experimenting, but nothing systematic yet. --Jwinius (talk) 21:21, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
There is a software that will move images into a category if it exists. This software is running now even though the categories do not exist or are being deleted due to some rules that were suggested in 2004 (or perhaps because they are strictly enforced for no good reason other than enforcing as occurs on other wikipedias). So, the category is perhaps being deleted before the software is allowed to fill it. For my plans and from what I see (a simile is about to occur in this text), this is not unlike putting several tablespoons of jelly onto a slice of bread and then attempting to spread the stouter peanut butter upon the jelly which is on single bread slice sandwich -- terrible and poorly considered construction design. All I can honestly say is that the way things are working at this point in time, I am really really happy that I do not have to claim that I was one of the people who was in a leadership position while it happened. -- carol (talk) 17:46, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

List of Euphorbiaceae generaEdit

Hello again. Apparently this list of genus that was too long to be on the category page (of expected genus and of the older classification genera) was not on my watchlist.

My reaction to the deletion of the List of Fabaceae species was quick (I was using it when it was deleted), early in my day (not my best time) and well, now there exists a List of Fabaceae species and a Genera of Fabaceae and the fact of that whole delete, recreate, move and discuss the usefulness of the list as a separate thing neglected the fact that it is not a list of species but a list of several genus. The upload software that is used here only suggests existing categories -- the effect of this is that I think that I had to create a category for one of the states of Mexico (don't hold me to this claim, it is presented as an example of the problem) even though there were maps that belonged there already and several other images. The plants are worse, I have found some families who have one taxonomy for one genus that goes all the way through a subfamily, tribe and then to the genus and the same family might have galleries for another genus in the family category. If the category exists, then the upload software will be able to suggest it as a destination for images.

Beyond making it easier for the upload software to place images into the category it belongs to, reflecting three taxonomy trees reduces the arguments of the science of taxonomy greatly. Users from any where and any schooling have a choice of three systems to navigate through and the ability to add a new system to the templates exists as well. The system that put them from family directly to genus was/is not so workable for some of these larger families. Another thing about making the genus categories with the expectation that there will be images to populate them is that it will make commons into one of the most flexible databases for plant genus that I have seen online. Every other site I have seen uses one taxonomy tree -- sometimes an attempt to describe how other taxonomy places the genus but never an option or the ability to display what genus belongs to one order in one taxonomy and to another order in another taxonomy. That list also has the information that a software needs to create the genus categories, apply the template that places them into all of the taxonomy and turn whatever the fraction of the 3 million images that are hosted here which are of plants into the best species name server available online right now.

It is difficult to filter my enthusiasm and it is also difficult to summarize what I have learned and seen in this field over the last 8 to 9 months (I think I started this education with the question "Why is a tribe smaller than a family?", heh). I watch uploads here of images from English wikipedia and where the license information should be is a lesson in defensiveness which is a sad sad commentary on methods being used there. If a person does not understand how the fuel injection works in their automobile, should it be removed? I don't think so, but there are several who are in charge of deletion and moving things that seem to think that way. I always appreciated that things like fuel injection and power steering worked (I drove a vehicle without power steering enough to know what the power steering has provided, btw). Please consider this analogy when deleting things; I am disappointed in myself for not having this list on my watch page but I am perhaps more disappointed in a user instance with "x11" in their name who didn't realize that it was the same thing and restore that at the same time.

Unrelated to taxonomy but related to x11, I have been watching a new flatscreen television and when the display ratio has been changed from using the whole display to using the 4:3 -- the padding is "thistle" or "thistle2" of the Named Colors. I just think that "Black" or "Dark Slate Gray" would have been so much better or even a choice of padding colors like gtk+ has in the last few years. If you would prefer discussing things like this over taxonomy, my talk page is always open for you. If you have no idea of what x11 or the Named colors are (or access to a palette) please change your user name!! Heh :) -- carol (talk) 17:25, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Since you have been active since I wrote this, I am just going to restore the page myself -- I don't think that I had the (family) names there yet. I am going to suggest that restoring one page like this and not restoring the other page like this is not a good sign. At least for myself, I would start to question if I was doing too much or that (perhaps if this is what is going on) it is best for one user to manage one user instance. -- carol (talk) 21:16, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

I apologise. I was a little busy and got a little distracted so I could only do a few things earlier today. Again, restoring the page by yourself is not a big deal as long as the admin who originally deleted it (me) does not object (as I stated above with List of Fabaceae species); and you can persuade any other admin who comes along, disagrees, and deletes it again. Zzyzx11 (talk) 00:31, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
That was an interesting day, actually. That list List of Fabaceae species is not of "species" and can safely be deleted. I am actually juggling more names and ideas than the "powers that be" in the history of the "Plants of" things here are able to juggle, so I actually forgave myself of this name problem and think that others can also.
Do you think that it is in the best interest of the commons for it not to become the most versatile and enabled species name server that is available? Taxonomy is the base of the study of botany (at both secondary level education and above); unless I am mistaken. -- carol (talk) 00:40, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah, and btw -- can you easily grab the text file that is included with the x11 source for the named colors? Any person can find it on English wikipedia, but not just anyone can grab it from the versioning server. Any nick with x11 in it should (seriously) be easily able to do this. I can do the second and would never have a nick with x11 in its name. It is a respect thing. -- carol (talk) 00:45, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the words on the talk page for that file. With the allowance of the duplication of images here, it seems kind of not on scope for the quickness of the deletion of useful and educational ways the database here can be used. Education like that enhances textbook information and college course content and high school course content and ways the science is going; I realize that the information and the database here can also be used for other things -- that should not interrupt that more honest scope I just tried to outline. Sigh. -- carol (talk) 02:59, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
If you are looking for a versatile and enabled species name server, you might want to try Wikispecies, also owned by the Wikimedia Foundation.
Also, my user name is named after Zzyzx, California, a settlement in the southeastern area of California. Zzyzx11 (talk) 19:52, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
It is unclear which taxonomy they follow and I don't think the decision to follow a single taxonomy makes sense due to the international parts of the wiki projects (this one in particular) and also due to the fact that technically, it is unnecessary due to the fact that wiki seems to be made for this. In addition, wikispecies is a snapshot of whatever taxonomy they are following -- when all the species are sequenced, they will need a complete rewrite (they nested the templates, it is a mess). In one of my conversations here, templates were called "data" and they are not data just like the blueprint is not a building and a printed recipe is not a meal.
The "science" itself gets stuck in their own problems before it can happen as the discussion of which taxonomy to follow is a dead end road. I have no opinion about this stuff and am not enabled to make an opinion (I don't have access to the sequencing equipment and if I did, I do not have enthusiasm perhaps). What commons is getting is a snapshot of three of the dead ends that have been followed, heh, in simple terms. It is the study of a science that is 300 or more years old by now with what they were doing in 1980, what they did in 1998 and what the Germans are trying to do. Oh, and the orchids -- a new taxonomy which doesn't seem to give a damn about where anyone thinks it goes, heh.
I really have no opinion about this taxon stuff -- it is more interesting to see the attempts and it actually uses the wiki frame work usefully. Commons serves images to wikipedias that use all of the taxonomy I represent here. Wikispecies isn't doing that either. I am not certain what wikispecies is doing but I do know that if they want to do things differently, it is going to take a lot of work -- much more than should be necessary. The nested templates are a mistake and one that I could have made myself if I hadn't seen that one.
Then about x11 and California. I grew up in the "Midwest" which is actually more east when looking at a map of this country. I had so many images of California that were taken in Southern and coastal California in my mind and "experience" that I was surprised by the cooler temperatures that can be found in the Bay area here. The local Californians like to think that they have a more international culture thing occuring here than anywhere else -- they are really wrong about this in my actual experiences in other places. x11 is really an impressive and long lived set of display software, being started in the early 1980s -- it should be possible, with a little technical knowledge (more than I have) to get computer displays from the 1980s working using that software package. Many *nix have used this software. IBM opted to put DOS on personal computers in the early eighties and then in eh, 2003 (with XP) they finally stop crashing?
When I first got access to a home computer that was "mine", I was kind of new or ignorant of things while I was learning. Like, I built my own web server (the instructions then were kind of complicated and modules had to be installed or not) but could not find where it had installed itself on my computer. Heh. I attempted to build the x11 software then and just simply failed. I knew others who could get it to build and understood that enough to determine ways to optimize and improve it for their own installation and equipment. That is what is good about the *nix operating systems. It is also with such an experience getting into this shared information environment that it is such a disappointment when the software is not utilized especially when it can be used to escape the problems of others (like politics and opinions about one taxonomy tree or another).
The x11 in your nick is cooler than I would ever think I could be (even having built it for this new a year or so ago computer at least once). -- carol (talk) 20:31, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

WHY DID YOU ERASE MY NEW ENTREE SHIT?????Edit

—Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.167.201.241 (talk • contribs)

The article you wrote was outside the project scope of the Wikimedia Commons. It was a pure text article without any images or other media. Such textual material should be placed elsewhere like Wikipedia's article on that subject. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (talk) 08:37, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Apologies - I reverted rather than reading it (& assumed it was a friend you'd made on en wp :)). --Herby talk thyme 08:43, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
At first glance, it looked like it was ... but I then was curious at that user's previous contributions, including the deleted ones, and found it was actually one of those "newbies or drive-by vandals who get mad when his/her stuff is deleted without paying attention to the policies". Since this is the case, I am not sure if a three day block is warranted now, but you make the call if you think it was a newbie or just an average vandal. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 08:50, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah agreed & unblocked. I took it as a normal en wp attack one without looking further (wrong!) and so will do the full AGF :) --Herby talk thyme 09:06, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

re User talk:Zzyzx11/En main pageEdit

WikiThanks.png

In response to your latest post at User talk:Zzyzx11/En main page, I wish to say "heck yeah!" The weird thing about the frantic discussion at en AN is how everyone was asking why the situation was so much worse than before the bot started and nobody seems to have had the slightest idea that you were handling the "planned" images for over a year. In any case, I'm grateful you've picked the burden up once again until someone figures out how to make one of those newfangled bot inventions work. - BanyanTree 04:53, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I myself was not keeping up with the activities and block of en:User:MPUploadBot, and so I sort of got complacent too – until I spotted the large discussion on en:WP:ANI. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 04:57, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Italybombing4.jpgEdit

Hi - if you could make the edit I've mentioned on the talk page of that image (added location and overlay), that'd be great. Particularly if you could do it while it's still on the En main page. While it's great for preventing vandalism, protection does tend to prevent legitimate users making legitimate changes while the iron is hot. Cheers anyway! - gobeirne (talk) 09:38, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

I see you have done this already. [15]. And yes, I fully know that protecting images directly on Commons has that disadvantage, and its not my preferred choice, but no one there at en.wikipedia has the time or the energy to temporary upload local copies and protect there on a regular basis. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 12:23, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Transfer to CommonsEdit

Dear Administrator, I've seen there are some images in wikipedia that should be transferred to commons. However, I don't have the CommonsHelper. Could you please do it? In concret, these are the images:

Thank you very much.--Aylaross (talk) 18:19, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Done.
If you would like to use CommonsHelper, it is at http://toolserver.org/~magnus/commonshelper.php (You will have to register first at Toolserver User Screening Control ) Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 11:54, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Smith SystemEdit

Hello,
I just discovered that some cat and articles of Wikicommons now follow Smith System.
But at the same time Smith System has no interwiki.
Don't you feel it strange ? Is this classification really interesting that it should be followed even if it is unknown from wikipedia?
Cheers Liné1 (talk) 10:15, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

My understanding is that the content about the Smith System is currently on en:Fern#Evolution and classification. If you insist, an interwiki link can be made here and a redirect created on en.wiki]]. Zzyzx11 (talk) 18:42, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

JamaicaEdit

How do we provide information about Jamaica's primary source of MSME information. it is supported by the government and other public and private entities. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SBAJ (talk • contribs)

Could you be more specific about the material you wish to upload? Keep in mind that the Wikimedia Commons accepts only free content, that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. Although material may supported by the government and other public and private entities, that does not mean that it is free and not copyrighted. For example, all web pages on the http://www.sbaj.org.jm/ website has "Copyright © 2005 - 2009 Small Business Association Of Jamaica" on the bottom. Thus, anything copied from there to here on the Wikimedia Commons would be deleted as a copyright violation. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (talk) 21:25, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Trixt (talk) 19:27, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Nothing personal, but I would not rather engage in another debate with armchair lawyers about what is and what is not permitted under the laws of freedom of panorama and derivative works. I have already participated in too many of those and those on en.wikipedia regarding fair use images. Besides, its not my image; I only transwikied that image from en.wikipedia using the CommonsHelper tool. So if it is not free content here, than it is not free content period. Cheers.

Question...Edit

Sorry for the inconvenience, but where can I make a request to a user ceases to be administrator here? Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 15h39min de 9 de Maio de 2009 (UTC)

Information can be found at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship (the Portuguese version is at Commons:Administrador/Revogação) But if you are thinking about User:Martin H. and the deletion of Rihanna images, I do not think he "is acting against policy and routinely abusing his or her status." If he believes that the Flickr user MiKeARB is actually making copyright violations by incorrectly marking his images as Creative Commons, then he has the right to delete those images here on the Wikimedia Commons. Zzyzx11 (talk) 04:01, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Correction in File:Reference ranges for blood tests - by mass.pngEdit

There was an error in this image, which is being put on display tomorrow on Picture of the day (interva --> interval in legend box). However, I couldn't update it because it was protected by being transcluded on a subpage of yours. So I uploaded it as a separate image (File:Reference ranges for blood tests - by mass (July 12 update).png), and I'll appreciate if you upload it so that it won't be the "wrong" version that will be put on the main page tomorrow.

The main discussion about this can be found at w:Talk:Main Page#Non-free image on the main page?.

Your assistance pleaseEdit

You deleted File:The Hudson's Bay Company in Nunavut.jpg I uploaded a non-corrupt version of the file. But the image faces deletion because it has no source and liscensing metadata.

Please restore that metadata.

FWIW I think your deletion was premature.

FWIW I think it is a mistake for administrators to delete material, without prior warning -- and then to not inform the good faith contributor of the deletion afterwards.

Hello, Sorry for spaming your talk page, but this is very important. On the behalf of the Wikiproject medicine at the en.wikipedia, I am inviting you to be a part of the discussion going on the project's talk page about Patient images, The discussion started after I obtained a permission to more than 23000 dermatology related images, and about 1500 radiology images. As some editors of the Wikiproject medicine have some concerns regarding the policy of using patient images on wikipedia, and regarding patient consents. Also they believe that common's policy is not so clear regarding the issue. And since you are the experts please join us at this very important discussion -- MaenK.A.Talk 14:24, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

A spoilerEdit

I work on a background article for to understood a ethnographic Category. A category as you do not have in your culture. But you deleted that because you despise strange cultures (racist?). But if Commons do not have place for strange cultures, what is so the substance of a encyclopedia? If the article had home in wikipedia so move the article to wikipedia. Now is the Category intelligible and you had spoiled this Category. haabet 11:39, 24 May 2010 (UTC) "Page is out of project scope: appears to be a normal text article" If the text was project scope a other project have need of the text.haabet 09:08, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

The Wikimedia Commons is not an encyclopedia. It is a media file repository to store images, video clips, and other media files. Your page was deleted because you were trying to write an encyclopedia or some other text article. As a general rule, it is not my job or any other admin's job to move it to one of the over 270 Wikipedias or any of the many other Wikimedia project sites. This is because, at the time we delete the page, we usually do not know what the original author's intention is or was, or which one of the numerous Wikimedia project sites was preferred.
Therefore, feel free to add it to your preferred Wikimedia project site. Since you were the only major contributor to that page, the text as it was when the page was deleted is copied below:
{{delete}}
speedy|out of scope -- 
*This is not a Gallery
*The text here gives information that is not supported by the description attached to the image -- there is no indication there whether these women are marriageable or not.

In many cultures been women married at an early age, shortly after her first menstruation, from at age of 12 years old. In some of that cultures been women married by unfamiliar single guests. For the marry the girls be show for explorers and been photographed. Many old photos are from that show of unmarried girls. But only if the dress show the unmarried status or the explorer understand the point this show been identified. Often the girls had a worried, shy expression or cheerful smile, but that is normally for girls in that age.

Text:Adagio_de.pdfEdit

I inserted a short poem in the article "Fausto Cercignani" on wikipedia.de. It was removed by an administrator and I was requested to license it. I licensed it as "public domain". But then another administrator informed me that it was not correct to insert it in that particular article and suggested a link to Wikisource, after uploading the text in this project. The poem was originally inserted as normal text. Now I have it as Adagio_de.pdf. May I upload this file to Wikisource now? Thank you very much for your help! -- Karlhillmann (talk) 10:06, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not familiar with WikiSource, so I cannot fully answer your question on how to link PDF files from here on the Wikimedia Commons to there. So you might need to ask a WikiSource administrator for assistance. But you can definitely upload "public domain" PDF files here on Commons as if it were a "public domain" images. Make sure you put {{PDF}} on the file description page. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 01:36, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

The problem is that if I restore here on the Wikimedia Commons, then by the time you read this another admin might delete it for the same reason. A cropped screenshot of the German version of apple.com, File:Steve Jobs.png, is also currently marked for deletion, and may also be gone by the time you read this.
Do you still have the image on your computer that can upload? apple.com may also still have it up. If not, en:wp already has a version at en:File:Applecom homepage after death of Steve Jobs.png. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 15:03, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I still have the image on my computer. The file on en:wp is also marked, and there is the fair use, which is not allowed in de:wp. I think the File:Steve Jobs.png is okay. If it will be deleted, I will upload my version in de:wp. Cheers, -- ianusius ✆ Disk. 07:56, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Looking at the page history, the image was renamed as File:Steve Jobs tribute-de.png, and there is now consensus to keep it since it is only the message itself, and not the entire web page with the apple.com navigation menu bar. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 01:52, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi there

It appears to me that today you deleted my profile page that I was working on earlier in the day.

To the best of my knowledge I had followed Wiki protocol in the creation and publishing of the page, and it also linked to other Wikipedia pages featuring some of my work.

Please advise how my profile page will be restored to how it was, or in a similar fashion.

I will appreciate a swift reply.

Thank you.
