I am a member of WikiProject Moving files to Commons, and now and then I upload images to Commons from Wikipedia with the help of For the Common Good or the CommonsHelper. Im also an OTRS agent.

Im from Stockholm, Sweden, and spent the last years in SE Asia, but presently live at the island Ljusterö, in the Stockholm archipelago. I have pictures from primarily animals and wildlife, as well as normal tourist places in Asia, like temples and likewise. I also have numerous pictures of smaller tropical animals like freshwater and salt water fishes, frogs and toads, reptiles like lizards and snakes etc. Im also interested in heraldry, being a member in the Swedish Heraldry Society, and I made a couple of weapon shields.

  • I made my first two edits on commons 3rd April 2005
  • became active contributor 27th of March 2014
  • rollback and patroller 5th of March 2015
  • filemover 2nd of June 2016.

But I believe I made some input earlier, 29th of November 2002 I described on Meta-Wiki an example of how to systematize animals and organisms on the Wikipedia which I had implemented on the Swedish Wikipedia:

Linné´s System of Organisms: / Domain / Kingdom / Phylum / Class / Family / Genus / Species / Subspecies / Race

This system is more or less used used in the same way today, as Template:Taxonavigation on Commons.

Use of my pictures

For those of my pictures released with the CC BY-SA 3.0 licence
 I would be glad if my name is mentioned when the pictures are used. 
For use within the Wikimedia projects my username Dan Koehl or even 
just the link to the description page at Wikimedia Commons will do nicely. 
For use outside the Wikimedia projects I would prefer that 
"'''Dan Koehl, Wikimedia Commons'''" is mentioned as source 
along with the licence code '''CC BY-SA 3.0'''.
