Hi, you recently uploaded this image. Can you make the specification of the source a little bit more exact? People have a tendency to slap "NASA" on every image that seems to be space related, even though some are not. Can you add to the image from which specific NASA source this image was downloaded? Thank you very much. TheDJ 21:34, 4 May 2008 (UTC)


Aupa, Assar! Zalduondo ez da Asparrena [1] :-) --Unai Fdz. de Betoño (talk) 14:16, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Fotos VitoriaEdit

Estoy conforme, pero permíteme que haga la poda de fotos yo. Que tal una linea (5 fotos) maximo por monumento. Saludos--Zarateman (talk) 15:16, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Borrado de categoríasEdit

Estimado Assar: te ruego que no borres más categorías como has hecho, entre otras categorías, con Cathedrals in the Basque Country[2]. Es completamente distinto, dado que se ha elegido por votación que en Commons Basque Country incluye los territorios en Francia y en España de Basse Navarre, Labourde, Navarra y Treviño, añadir la categoría Category:Cathedrals in France que simplemente borrar Category:Cathedrals in Spain. De esta manera, además de la localización de dichas catedrales se pierde el acceso de quien quiera a través de la categoría Cathedrals. Gracias y un saludo, --Balbo (talk) 12:52, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

French versionEdit

Kaixo! Why did you remove the French version of Vitoria-Gasteiz. Regards --Zorion (talk) 04:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Colour tweaks in File:Txindokitik ekialdera.JPGEdit

Hi Assar, Thanks for your interests in the pictures I uploaded. I liked the tweak in another Aralar picture. However, in your last tweak on the above mentioned the outcome is worse than the original. Admittedly, the problem is often little contrast in my photos, but by adding more contrast is has created dark areas where before was perfectly neat and natural (the shade over the formation in the foreground and the hikers' colours).

Hello, Assar!

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:

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]]

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").

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.

Thanks for uploading File:Uribarri (aramaio).jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Condado de TreviñoEdit

Hello Assar, thank you for your message. I really have no desire to get involved in any linguistic war but I disagree in the case of Condado de Treviño. Condado de Treviño is a municipality and its official name is Condado de Treviño, in Castilian Spanish. The names of municipalities are not translated into English. Even in the English wiki the name of the article is Condado de Treviño. That is the name that should be used in the relevant commons category.

The case of the Category:Enclave of Treviño is different. That is named correctly in English, because "enclave" is a common term, as opposed to the official name of a municipality.

A similar case would be Category:La Puebla de Arganzón, where the official name is correctly used. The name of this municipality is different in Basque, Argantzun, and that doesn't mean that the category should be named "The Village of Arganzón". County of Treviño is not a historic name that would justify its translation into English. Please, do reconsider reverting your edits.

Kind regards, tyk (talk) 19:07, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
