MistakeEdit

This edit deleted a whole section. I think you meant to just add your vote. -- Colin (talk) 20:55, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Colin, Thanks so much for informing me, I had absolutely no idea that had even been removed!, As explained in the edit summary I have a mouse issue - It's hard to explain but basically I cannot copy/highlight anything with it and selecting a certain area of the text it can highlight from a certain point and then when I type I'm then basically overtyping over everything!,
Anyway yeah that certainly wasn't intentional so my sincere apologies for that cock up there!,
Many thanks again for informing me,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:06, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Rename request for File:Therme (28899133011).jpgEdit

Hi Davey2010, you requested this file to be renamed but you didn't provide a new name for it :) Please can you edit the template on the file description page to suggest an accurate new name? Thanks in advance,

Best regards, -- AlNo (discuter/talk/hablar/falar) 16:03, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Alno, I specifically stated "Criterion 2 (To change from a meaningless or ambiguous name to a name that describes what the image particularly displays.) · name needs to be more specific" (emphasis mine) - The file was transferred from Flickr however I have no idea what the image is or even where it is and so I cannot provide a better rationale.
The image has since been deleted on Flickr[1] so I have idea if it was in an album,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 16:24, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
OK, then I'll skip this one :) Thanks for your quick reply! -- AlNo (discuter/talk/hablar/falar) 16:30, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Alno, You're welcome :), Give me 2 ticks I'll see if I uloaded the image with others - I believe the image was taken in Pompey (or however you spell it), I'll take a look now :), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 16:40, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi Alno, I've found the image:
The image seems to have come from an Album that had images from Pompeii and Rome (atleast judging by my uploads),
I hope this helps :), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 16:49, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

ANU boardEdit

Hey @Davey2010:. So look, I made a mistake regarding the copyright of several photos I recently uploaded. I have acted swiftly and decisively to rectify them. But I ask of you to please not to cruelly call for me to be "indeffed" and for every single photo that I have uploaded to be deleted without review. My contributions have otherwise been substantial. The vast majority of photos I have uploaded are quite firmly public domain under Australian laws - many of which are for past political figures who had previously had zero photos on their Wiki pages. I have also been working hard to update every federal Australian government Ministry to an acceptable standard. Here's an example of a page before my edits: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McMahon_Ministry and here's one after: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McEwen_Ministry. Likewise I have been doing similar with the pages of different federal divisions - once again here's one before: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Division_of_Holt and here's one after: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Division_of_Corangamite. At the very least I ask of you to weigh up my contributions more fairly and without blatant hostility --Thescrubbythug (talk) 06:51, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Thescrubbythug, Sorry you were meant to have recieved a reply here first, Not to assume bad faith but the majority of people here who upload copyvios etc etc end up blocked .. and then when it expires they immediately return to where they left off which is why I was all "indef and delete" as I thought it was a was just another cut and dried case, Anyway I again sincerely apologise,
I hope you stick around and if you have any questions or need help then I'd be more than happy too :),
Thanks and Happy editing. –Davey2010Talk 14:22, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Request & Invitation for Wiki Loves Love 2019 JuryEdit

Hello @Davey2010:, Hope you are doing well! I am co-ordinator of [Wiki Loves Love 2019], an international Commons Contest aimed at documenting love in different cultures and the theme of 2019 is festivals, ceremonies and rituals of love. We would be honored to have you on Jury for the contest, which will happen from February 1- February 28 2019. Please let us know if it is agreeable, our team would be excited and thrilled to have you on board. The timeline would be after first week of March to couple first weeks of April. Hopefully, that time would be enough for the jury. And if it is not, then we can always extend. But we will do the pre-work and your work would be to select the winner photographs. Happy New Year to you. Wishing you lots of love and happiness.Wikilover90 (talk) 10:12, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Wikilover90, Thank you very much for your message and for bearing me in mind but unfortunately this isn't really something I'm interested in, Thank you for your message tho I greatly appreciate it:),
I wish you all the very the best with your project and hope all goes well :),
Thanks again, Take care, –Davey2010Talk 14:29, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

File:ESC HONEY.svgEdit

According to previous discussions, this should be deleted?

You could nominate again, listing above links.--BevinKacon (talk) 12:35, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi BevinKacon, Personally I would say the file is copyrighted I certainly don't think it was taken from the source I provided however as you note I did indeed nomninate it where it was closed, If you want to renom it I have no issues with that, Thanks for your message, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 14:16, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

The VicuñaUploaderEdit

You could always use the VicuñaUploader for mass-uploads or Commonist. At least that way you won't be limited by the 50 (fifty) files selection limit, note that rate limits are independent from upload tools, upload tools are just upload clients, much like how the Google Play app can only upload one (1) file at a time the MediaWiki Upload Wizard is limited to 50 (fifty), so these tools should solve your issues(, hopefully). --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 08:15, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Donald Trung 『徵國單』, Ah thanks for the suggestion, Unfortunately all of my images are "DSCN<number>" so I prefer to use the uploadwizard as you can apply names, descriptions and categories to all images with a click of a button and given my mouse on the spare laptop likes to disable itself for me I don't think this would work, Anyway thanks again for your suggestion :), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 10:32, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Limit stuffEdit

Hi! Jarekt found this out a while ago:

  1. go to this stage using Chrome browser
  2. open java script console with Ctrl + Shift + J
  3. paste "mw.UploadWizard.config.maxUploads = 500;"
  4. now if you open an album or a photostream with up to 500 images you can upload them all at once

Just remembered I had this on my user page.   --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 09:06, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

@Hedwig in Washington: That's awesome! - Alexis Jazz ping plz 17:32, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

So sorryEdit

Davey, I did not mean to offend, I can see why I might have, and apologize. Honestly, that was a tricky test, that I might well not pass myself; sometimes I give tests with a few clearly good images and a few clearly bad ones, but not a lot of debatable ones like that one. --GRuban (talk) 16:48, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi GRuban, Thank you for your apology it's really appreciated and it goes without saying I apologise for my reaction after,
On the LR page Alexis stated let's test. Answer the following questions for each of the following images: 1. Would you pass the image? (ignore scope, only look at the license) 2. Why am I asking you about this particular image? - Now given all images were Pixabay I simply assumed Alexis was referring to the fact Pixabay changed their licence and that they wanted to see if I would pass those based on the licences and without sounding funny Alexis didn't mention copyright stuff etc (I didn't realise it was essentially everything in your reply after) - As I said I simply assumed it was licence-related so without paying much attention to the actual images I spent all my time concentrating on the actual licences .... and then seeing your reply genuinely did offend me because it felt like I did try, The question could've perhaps been much clearer but either way It was my fault for not picking up on the images properly,
Without realising it at the time I think I'd got the wrong end of the stick,
Anyway I don't have a great understanding of everything mentioned in your reply so maybe it was for the best if it was rejected,
Anyway thank you for your apology and for coming here I genuinely do appreciate it and as I said I too apologise for my reaction and comments,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 17:37, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
You didn't really think I was going to make it easy, did you?   I did warn for traps.. Checking the license also includes checking the validity of the license. I just added that note because some of the examples could arguably be out of scope, but that's not really relevant for a license review. I simply collected the examples from Category:Unreviewed files from Pixabay. Unreviewed files, because if I used files with a review, that would be too easy. Actually, I did consider trying to find some upload that was after 9 January, but I found so many more interesting cases so easily I decided to skip that. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 01:29, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
Just like GRuban btw, I wouldn't have expected or required a perfect score. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 01:31, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I'll hold on my tongue and simply say thanks for your questions, Happy editing. –Davey2010Talk 01:48, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I'm sorry if it was unclear.. I knew you had been active on Commons:License review/requests, I thought if I threw you a curveball you'd be able to actually catch it, resulting in an easy promotion.. Without it, I figured people would go and dig up Commons:Deletion requests/File:Tribute, Westminster Bridge (34309489793).jpg or the initial upload from Commons:Deletion requests/File:London June 7 2016 021 ITV EU Referendum Debate Cameron v Farage (2) (26917273454).jpg. So I was hoping to avoid that by throwing you a curveball. That was my mistake. I misjudged. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 02:13, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi Alexis Jazz, Ahhhh I'm with you, Not your fault at all I should've picked up on certain things anyway, There's obviously a lot I don't know (and certainly don't understand) so I said my fault entirely,
As I said on the LR page I'm glad you did ask because despite it all going south there was things I obviously don't know so actually thank you for asking :),
I'm just sorry it all went wrong but anyway new day and all that,
Thanks for your message Alexis, Take care, –Davey2010Talk 11:59, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Another point of viewEdit

Why not consider your withdrawal may have been rushed and others may appreciate your contributions? Please reconsider  . — Racconish💬 16:55, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

+ 1 --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 20:55, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

+ 1 --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:45, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Racconish, Thanks so much for your kind message it's very much appreciated it really is so thank you,
I'll be honest I originally planned to upload the remaining images I've taken, categorise them all ... and then leave the project for good with an indef block,
Not to make a big deal out of it as GRuban did apologise above but their comment here did deeply offend me to the point where I no longer wanted to be a part of this project anymore - I answered the test in good faith and with my full honesty but was instead met with that which as I said did deeply offend me,
I'm still in the mindset of moving all of my images to a category and requesting an indef right now but I know in a few days I could end up regretting that decision so hopefully after a good nights sleep I might wake up in a better mindset than now
Anyway babbling on lol - thanks again for your kind and thoughtful message :), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 22:01, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi User:Hedwig in Washington, Thanks and also thanks for your tip earlier :), I'll try it out in a few days and let you know if it works, Hope you're well buddy   :) –Davey2010Talk 22:01, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Some baklava for you!Edit

  Hopefully you had a good night's sleep, and you woke up today in a better mindset than yesterday, so you would remove {{Retired}} from your userpage. 4nn1l2 (talk) 14:09, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi 4nn1l2, I did thanks! :), Certainly feel a lot better than yesterday that's for sure, Thanks for your kind message and turkish treat :),
It's amazing what a goods nights sleep can do!, Anyway thanks again :), –Davey2010Talk 15:20, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks again!Edit

Thanks again for your great help. I will definitely keep uploading images to Wikicommons. I have a ton of great images from my travels and will sort through them in the near future. Another question: Who evaluates the "good pictures"? How do you get on them? Grenz (talk) 23:01, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

You're welcome Grenz, given the bs that's occurred it's the least I can do,
Oh wow well thank you for sharing them - Having obviously seen the images you've already uploaded I know without a doubt your travel images are going to be amazing! :), I'd love to go travelling but not exactly cheap lol),
I have absolutely no idea I believe people !vote on them (?) (I could be wrong) - We have COM:Featured pictures, COM:Quality images and COM:Valued images - Featured being top dog, Quality being good and Valued being the bottom of the barrel essentially,
If it helps you could always go to Commons:Photography_critiques and "showcase" 4-5 of your best images and then people there will say whether your images are Featured/Quality/Valued-worthy or not (Featured and Quality would be your best bet IMHO),
Many thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:19, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Buses in OxfordEdit

Hi Davey, no objections to your reverts. I was sorting through the Saïd Business School and the majority of the category was bus images.Aloneinthewild (talk) 22:25, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Aloneinthewild, Thanks, I have a feeling I was the who added the school category n the first place but yeah not all needed to be there so thanks for removing them :), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:32, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

File:Monochrom Eignblunzn (2003), documentation.jpgEdit

Dear Davey2010! Long time no see/type. Last time you kindly offered to contact you in case I have questions, and now I'm really doing it! :) I just realized that a file that I uploaded has been deleted. I see no reason why and why specifically this image was targeted. Can you make sense of this? I left a message at the user page of the user in charge, but haven't heard back yet. Grenz (talk) 11:18, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Grenz, Haha long time no see!, Nah it's fine mate it's not like you're hounding me 24/7 so it's cool :), If I can help in any way then I will :),
Anyway basically someone has again tagged it under No Permission (would be interesting to know who!), Jcb hasn't been on since 22:11 (26 Feb) so it's fair to assume they haven't seen your message yet, If you ask him nicely he always undeletes files (which is appreciated) so it's best to wait it out for now :),
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 11:39, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! :) Grenz (talk) 11:42, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome mate :), –Davey2010Talk 11:49, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Update: I filed an undeletion request, and the they are not very helpful there. Seems the whole discussion again: Commons:Undeletion_requests Grenz (talk) 20:58, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi Grenz, Sorry I couldn't of been more help here,
If I were you I would simply stick 2 fingers to this pathetic website and upload elsewhere where my photographs would be appreciated,
If you want to continue uploading here then my best advice I can give is to simply upload at Flickr, and then use COM:Flickr 2 Commons to transfer them here (or I can use Com2Flickr for you) - That should then skip around the whole OTRS bollocks, But like I said failing that stick 2 fingers up and never return,
Quiet frankly I'm absolutely appalled at the way you've been treated here and If I were in your shoes I'd simply leave and join another photography site where my uploads are actually appreciated and are not treated like they're absolute shit!,
I'm truly sorry I can't help in anyway I just wish there's something I could do or say that would help but not being an admin I'm unfortunately limited to asking and praying for miracles here!,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:12, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
I am used to bureaucratic processes. I understand. Yes, in the future I will use Flickr references with clear CC license. Easier. Thanks! Grenz (talk) 12:31, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Just an update, User:Davey2010... the fun keeps going. But I hope it will be settled soon. I'm starting to enjoy how many people have to deal with my images :) https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard#Images_by_Grenz Grenz (talk) 15:47, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi Grenz, Hope all's well,
Haha I suppose that's a plus, I hope you can get all of this resolved and now more eyes are on it it should be resolved a lot quicker (and plus those there have access to OTRS (whereas I don't), Good luck my friend!. –Davey2010Talk 17:11, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
