File:Bender mountains.jpgEdit

Smaller texts are badly readable. Do you have a bigger version? In addition, here is no exact source. Sometimes this is reason for deletion, although not here: the file is obviously work of US government. Nevertheless: do you have exact source? Taivo (talk) 09:06, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Got your message. Sorry, that upload was poorly done. Thank you for contacting me to point out its shortcomings. I acquired the original map from here on Commons where, incidentally, it is also lacking author and source information. All of this can be fixed, I think: the source for both images should probably be indicated as "United States Geological Survey Map of Leverett Glacier, Antarctica, SV 1-10/7, S8500—W13500/1x15" published in 1966 (I am taking that from the map itself) with the author as "United States Geological Survey in cooperation with the National Science Foundation". Now, when I go to the USGS website and look for this map, what I find are three links to pages which supposedly show it but were published in 2018 (see here). And when I try to download and view any of these files, my computer informs me that although it did download something called usarcmp3tst2.shtml, that file is only 26kb and the intended file itself was not findable (try it yourself, if you like). I have now sent the USGS a message about this, will let you know if I hear back from them. In the mean time, I will re-upload my modified map in much higher resolution so that the names on it can be properly read, and I will add the sourcing and author information as indicated above unless you think these should say something else (?). Again, thanks again for pointing this out. A loose noose (talk) 12:35, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Fixed, have now heard back from the USGS and they gave me a link to the correct set of maps. I have placed this link in both files. A loose noose (talk) 23:08, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Copyright violationsEdit

Hi there, and thanks for your work spotting copyright violations. For really obvious cases, you don't need to bother starting a deletion discussion. Just tag the file {{Copyvio |1= |source= }}, with the reason you believe it's a copyvio in the field 1=, and, when available, a URL in the field source=. In cases where the file has an author and a source, but no evidence the author agreed to its publication under a free license, tag it {{subst:npd}}. Happy hunting! --Rrburke (talk) 13:01, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Request for confirmationEdit

You created a file called Greenhouse-effect-t2.svg that shows CO2, H2O, and NH4 as the major greenhouse gases. The Wikipedia article on greenhouse gases, however, states that the primary greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, water, methane (CH4), nitrous oxide, and ozone. Ammonium (NH4) is not mentioned in the article. Which leads me to ask if the NH4 in your file is not a typo for CH4. Could you check this out and let me know what you think? Thanks

  • That is absolutely a typo. Will fix and re-upload post haste. Thank you for pointing this out to me. A loose necktie (talk) 09:16, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
