Hello, Diliff!

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

Template:Diliff/LicensingEdit

Hi Diliff,

As I regularly write descriptions in french for VI, QI & FP, I came across your custom permission template, Template:Diliff/Licensing, and noticed that it was used on many pages (congratulations and thanks, by the way, for all these nice pictures).

I believe it would be nice if this template was internationalised, so your message would be displayed using the language of the user. If you don't mind, I think I can do it for you. I mean creating the "architecture" (all the subpages) and the french version of your message.

What do you think ? Cheers, Jean-Fred (talk) 19:41, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

P.S. Minor point : do you have any objection if I move on your pictures the tech info (such as « Taken with a Canon 5D and 24-105mm f/4L IS lens. ») from the description field to {{Photo Information}} ?

No problem for the lag. As for the camera details, I just thought of moving the info to the template for the ones I have to edit anyway. But maybe it could be done by bot, I will look into that. In any case, don't worry, I don't plan to go on every single picture you have uploaded :-)
As for the license template : according to Category:User custom license tags, those templates should be in the user namespace. I do not know if it is a policy or just the guy who wrote this opinion ; but well, let's leave it where it is for now.
If you are interested in the process : I first thought of using {{Autotranslate}}, which uses as many subpages as languages (and is really hard to understand). But I just noticed that your summary was just text. It is better to use {{LangSwitch}} in this case, and much simpler, as you can see (no need to be black belt in templates !). I just translated your text. I did the best I can, and I believe I am faithful to your original text. You may see the result using this link, and an example.
That is as mush as I can do though. You may want to ask some german, spanish and so-on locutors for the rest. If no translation exists, english would be used. Jean-Fred (talk) 16:09, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Template:Diliff/Licensing‎Edit

On which page did it look broken? File:Port Vell, Barcelona, Spain - Jan 2007.jpg seemed ok. -- User:Docu at 16:48, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

  • [1] looked strange - it seemed to make everything below the permission (eg the 'other versions') appear within the permission section. You can revert my change back to see what it did if you like, but I still prefer the way the license is presented with the bold and font sizing anyway. Diliff (talk) 18:14, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
    • At least, could we reduce the size of the "summary" heading? It's currently larger than any other header on the page? -- User:Docu at 17:27, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Profile size and activity criterion for Commons:Meet our photographersEdit

Dear member of Commons:Meet our photographers,

Two issues have recently been raised at Commons talk:Meet our photographers:

Profile size creep
The page is becoming increasing cluttered due to a tendency among some members to make personal profiles, which are unreasonably large. You are kindly requested to consider the size used by your profile and consider if it has a reasonable size. Note that the same message is being send to all members, so it is up to you to use your own good judgement in this. We are not interesting in setting up exact quantitatve rules. It should be a matter of common sense.
Activity criterion
It has been suggested to introduce an activity criterion in addition to the minimum 10 FPs criterion to be included on the list. You are kindly requested to voice your opinion on this proposal.

Re: Two featured picture candidates on the English WikipediaEdit

Hi David,

I feel honored that you nominated these two pictures. They aren't what I saw best in Laos, but you are right, there aren't --sadly-- that many FP for Laos, if any. When I have time, I'll upload a bunch of pictures of temples (Vat). Have some in stock. I was in Laos and Thailand in September. Though this is then the end of rain season, it's still is a nice moment to go, because rain "cleans off" dust from the sky I believe (hence the very clear picture of Bangkok, despite the pollution) and make the sun spots enjoyable for grabbing images. Same for Luang Prabang. I wish I had gone to Laos by myself... I would have taken much more time to shot. I was sort of in a hurry there, and had to follow my family. Luang Prabang has many temples and sites around that I've missed... I've miss people too. I'm sure you'll grab many more things that I haven't caught myself. You have the "touch" much more than I. Your latest additions to wiki are very impressive and beautiful. I now seldom come to have a look, but never miss your user page when I do so ;).

Thank you and good shooting in Asia ! - Benh (talk) 22:09, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

misrepresenting CC-BYEdit

I am looking at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/deed.en and I do not see where "commercial licensing" is "restricted". The terms that you attach to the use of your work imply that such restrictions exist and I accordingly think that you are misrepresenting the terms of CC-BY. In my mind, and I believe the mind of the Wiki community, "free" means that we do not have to "negotiate" commercial use with you as you demand. What, exactly, do you expect to negotiate if this is not a demand for money? Restrictions on attribution or remixing? Then why not state such restrictions plainly in your terms? If you are not misrepresenting CC-BY, then why do you not follow your own terms and provide "a copy of, or full URL of the license." If you don't like what it says then select a license other an CC-BY. If you don't want to freely license your work, fine, no one is required to contribute the Commons. Indeed, your work is outstanding. But trying to mislead people into concluding that CC-BY is more restrictive than it is is another matter. I've gotten requests to use my Commons uploads and they make reference to how little they can pay even though all of my uploads are unambiguously declared public domain and I just repeat to them what the license was. I don't play on people's ignorance to make a buck because I consider myself a Wikipedian: my contributions are free. If I had photos I wanted to make money on, I would have a for-profit agency like Gettys market them fairly, I would not use Wiki projects as my personal IStockPhoto. Do you tell everyone who contacts you about using your photos the truth, which is that free commercial use (with attribution) is permitted by CC-BY, or not?--Bdell555 (talk) 04:33, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

  • I don't feel the need to explain myself to you when you make so many bad faith assumptions about why I've used the wording I have. I'll just summarise with some facts instead:
  1. I don't treat Wikipedia like my own personal iStockPhoto. My primary motivation is for people to learn from my photos.
  2. Commercial entities inevitably want to use photos on Wikipedia, and some of them don't want to adhere to the CC-BY-CA terms because it looks unprofessional. Commercial use is restricted by the way. They have to attribute and they have to license any re-use of the images as CC-BY-SA. That means including a caption or similar below the image saying Image by [xxx]. Licensed as CC-BY-SA 3.0". As you can imagine, many commercial re-users of Wiki Commons images want to use the image without these restrictions.
  3. I have done my best to explain in simple terms what it is that CC-BY-CA requires. The reason I have done this is because I am constantly (even now) asked whether my image can be used in paricular situations and in particular ways. I have attempted to make the terms simple to understand to minimise the number of questions I receive. If my motivation was to convince them that no commercial use is possible, I wouldn't have bothered to do that.
  4. Rather than have them abuse the terms or not use the image at all, I give them the opportunity to negotiate the restrictions that CC-BY-CA imposes. Sometimes by not requiring them to attribute or release their derivative of my image as CC-BY-CA too, I would expect that they should pay for it. Sometimes I'm just willing to let them use it for free if they'd prefer to attribute in a different way, or something. It depends, that's why it's called negotiation. The key thing to understand here is that I'm not trying to convince them to pay for a CC-BY-CA licensed image when they have no obligation to. I'm giving them alternative license choices, and I'm completely within my right to do that as the copyright holder. They can then make their own decision. Diliff (talk) 09:45, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Your license does not, in fact, say what you just said to me here. If it did, I would have no objections. It does not just say, "You have to attribute and license any re-use of the images as CC-BY-SA," like you say here. Neither does it say "Include a caption or similar below the image saying Image by [xxx]. Licensed as CC-BY-SA 3.0" like you say here. With respect to what your license does say, I'm of the opinion that the existing, collaboratively developed licensing templates "explain in simple terms what it is that CC-BY-CA requires" and if you disagree with that, you can change those templates accordingly. Why do you only identify what users CANNOT do and not what they CAN if your "primary motivation is for people to learn"? An "opt out" licensing regime creates a very problematic precedent, and other users are doing the same thing you are, sometimes even more problematically (e.g. an uploader this week who explicitly says CC-BY-NC-ND in his "custom" license tag). Best practices in licensing is a collaborative project in my view just like the rest of Wiki projects. In any case, a fuller explanation of why I think this is a serious issue is here.--Bdell555 (talk) 10:33, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
The reason why my permission summary details more what can't be done than what can be done is because I'm personally more concerned by misuse of my images than legitimate commercial use. I'm not trying to hide that it's permissable to use the images commercially within the bounds of CC-BY-SA, I just don't care to spell it out any further than what is already said in the license template. I'm ideologically opposed to 'exploitive' commercial use such as when a big corporation, standing to benefit financially from a photo, and having a choice between (a) paying good photographers for their time and effort, or (b) taking the cheap and ethically ambiguous way out and using photos for free (often without bothering to read the fine print), chooses the latter. I see that as unethical. I'd love to have our Commons images restricted to non-commercial use, but the powers that be have decided not to go down that path, and have only offered fairly tame reasons why, such as allowing for the ability to sell DVDs containing Wikipedia 'at cost'. I've never shied away from expressing my opinion on the issue of licensing when it's been brought up in discussions in the past. There are plenty of contributing photographers who feel the same way as me. We grudgingly submit to the rules because we think the benefits of educational access to the photos outweighs the potential exploitation from commercial re-users. Clearly I can't change the behemoth that is Commons, but I don't have to pander to it and submit to the ideology absolutely either. People with different opinions and motivations can co-exist within Wikipedia. It would be a less interesting and stimulating place if it were otherwise. Diliff (talk) 10:57, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
"Using a photo for free" is not "ethically ambiguous" when it comes from a project that says "anyone" can freely use. What's ethically ambiguous is instead of trying to change the free use notice that outsiders see on the project as a whole, just setting up one's own little sign on Commons as if it is one's private property in an effort to send a more personally satisfying or privately rewarding message. In other words you DO have to submit to the "ideology" of free use when that is a cornerstone of the project. You're not entitled to use the project to advance some anti-"corporate" "ideology" or whatever it is any more than I am. Just where to draw the line on what is free and what is not, however, is a matter on which reasonable people can, and do, disagree, and that is a matter that is settled by the Wikimedia Foundation and the consensus of the community. At present the line is draw at CC-BY-SA. You have had, and have, your opportunity to speak up for a more restrictive license just like I had, and have, my opportunity to speak up for a less restrictive license. Respecting consensus means using CC-BY-SA without additional conditions, embellishments, declaring that one is in a position to unilaterally "clarify the terms of the license" or otherwise use some idiosyncratic creation that is more restrictive.--Bdell555 (talk) 20:07, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Well it appears that I can set up my own little sign, because it's happily sat there for almost two years without any complaints. You're the only person who's said anything about it, so will you accept consensus that it's not a big deal? I wonder. Diliff (talk) 21:06, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Fir0002 was a great contributor, perhaps not as great as yourself but still a very good photographer, but after carefully considering objections to his license choice he decided that he would rather not upload his work than upload it under the conditions that had been agreed to by the Commons community and the Wikimedia Foundation. It is unfortunate, and it is possible that Fir0002 felt that he or his work was not being given the respect it was due, but somehow and somewhere a clear bright line needs to be drawn and it is my understanding that the Foundation wants to encourage good contributors to come over to the free side of the line without offering a fudging of the line as an inducement. If anything I have said implies that I or anyone else would rather you not contribute to the Commons as opposed to making contributions that are clearly inside the bright line I sincerely apologize. If the Commons community and the Wikimedia Foundation have no objections to your licensing practices I fully accept that and "I wonder" what your evidence is for doubting that I would support licensing practices that have been approved by the Commons community and/or the Foundation.--Bdell555 (talk) 21:52, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
I don't think Fir0002 wanted more respect for his work - he just wanted more control over the re-use of his images. As he mentions, he simply wanted a non-commercial license for Wikipedia so that he could satisfy his desire to help the encyclopaedia without allowing his images to be used commercially. I fully sympathise with him on that. I assume very few of us would be submitting images to Commons if it wasn't close associated with Wikipedia. Clearly we donate images primarily because of their use in the encyclopaedia, rather than because we like the idea of them being used commercially. There's a fundamental schism between the goals of many Commons contributors and the goals of Commons itself. We co-exist because we each benefit each other in some way or another. But that doesn't mean it's perfect harmony by any means. And yes, there are also many people out there like you, who have no commercial interest in the photos they take, and that's great, but I think it's an imposition to expect everyone to be like you in order to contribute. Anyway, I'm glad to hear you are willing to accept consensus. It's a constantly evolving thing, but right now, it looks pretty clear that consensus is to allow custom notices relating the licensing. As for evidence for doubting your support for consensus, it seems fairly self evident that you're driven by your own ideology and not by policy/consensus. Whether you can bite your tongue when consensus doesn't go your way on this issue, well, that's what I wondered. We'll see. Diliff (talk) 23:14, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi Diliff,

I just went through all the Pristis-pictures I found in Commons, checking them, using Fishbase, the FAO identification guides and the IUCN site and saw that what you photographed cannot be P. pectinata. Since there are less than 21 teeth per side on the rostrum, the caudal finhas has a distinct lower lobe and the first dorsal fin begins distinctly before the origin of ventral fins it clearly is a member of the P. pristis-group and most likely Pristis perotteti, which occurs (together with P. pectinata at the US East coast.

Was there any rationale for you to buy the NN3 instead of a Novoflex product? The haptic of the VR II is amazing (I made some tests at a frieds who owns the adapter). Thanks for the information. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:14, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks Tuxyso. If you take a lot of interior panoramic photos, it's definitely worth investing in a panoramic head. When I bought the Nodal Ninja (more than 5 years ago), I don't think the Novoflex VR II Pro even existed at that time. I'd certainly never heard of it before. But I'm quite certain that even if it did exist, I definitely would not have spent €749 on it. ;-) It looks much better built than the Nodal Ninja but since it is 3-4 times more expensive, I would expect nothing less. I don't think the Nodal Ninja is perfect, but it is everything a panoramic head needs to be. I noticed that the Novaflex is much much heavier at 1.7kg. The Nodal Ninja 3 is 750g. If you plan to shoot with large lenses, it might be worth paying more and getting the Nodal Ninja 4 or Ultimate M because the arms are larger. If the vertical arm is too small, the lens will bump into the horizontal arm when tilted down, or the camera will when tilted up). But this depends on what lens you are using and how much you want to tilt (it's important if you do 360 degree panoramas including the zenith and nadir points, but not usually so important for regular stitched mosaics like I do where the angle of view is not extreme. Anyway, if you are even considering the Novoflex then cost probably isn't such an issue! I'm happy enough with the NN3 though. Diliff (talk) 22:00, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your in-detail reply. I asked YOU for the difference between NN and Novoflex because my first impression from product shots was that the NN looks a bit shaky. The heaviest lens I plan to mount is the Nikon AF-S 105mm macro. Most of the times it will be the AF-S (35 / 50 / 85) f1.8 60mm Macro or any wide-angle zoom. For that use case and for a hobby shooter the VR II might be overkill. If one takes a look into the NN shop there is no significant price difference between NN 3 and NN 4 (if you buy a package with leveler or rotator). Do you use a rotator / leveler from NN or a ball head from a different brand? --Tuxyso (talk) 07:34, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
The NN isn't shaky, it's pretty rock-solid. There isn't really any bend or wobble in the arms as they are solidly built. The only issue I found once was that occasionally the tilt arm - the one that attaches to the camera - would slowly rotate downwards (due to the weight of the camera and lens). The annoying thing was that it would happen very slowly and I wouldn't notice it happening until after I had completed my set of photos. Sometimes I didn't even notice until I got home and saw that the there was some blur in the photo. Apparently this is a common problem and is related to the teflon washers used in the tightening knob, and the rubber friction plate. This might not make much sense to you if you haven't already seen a NN and all its parts. In any case, I read the NN forums and apparently if there is contamination (such as oil) of these washers and rubber, it can cause the sagging problem. I've resolved the issue by cleaning the washers and also adding an additional washer and making sure I have tightened the knob extra hard. It's possible that the larger NN4 or Ultimate is much stronger but the NN4 arm looks almost the same as the NN3 arm, only slightly longer to work with larger lenses. It says that the NN3 and NN4 are both capable of working with up to 3.5kg but I don't think the upper rotator could handle that load without sagging. My 5D and 35mm lens combination is 1.6kg and I wouldn't expect it to hold too much more than that.
Actually I didn't get the advanced rotator (just the basic one that comes with NN3) or leveller. I use my Markins Q3 ball head for levelling. I attach the ball head's quick release plate to the rotator of my Nodal Ninja and put the Nodal Ninja plate (not quick release) on my camera's tripod mount, and then screw the plate onto the Nodal Ninja when I'm setting up for the panorama. It would be nice to have a quick release plate to connect and disconnect the camera from the NN also (and I believe it's possible to buy one for the NN3) but using a knob to screw the camera in doesn't take long so it's not really an issue. Because the NN3 has a built in bubble level, it's very easy to use the ball head to provide the levelling, then just lock the ball head and rotate the head with the NN's rotator. Anyway, all of this is difficult to explain in text. It's a very mechanical process and the best way to understand is to use it. As I said earlier, the NN3 is not perfect, but I'm very happy with it overall and can recommend it. As for the pricing of NN3 and NN4, I think you are comparing the NN3 with the advanced rotator and the NN4 with a standard rotator, because the NN4 with the standard rotator is the same price as the NN3 with the advanced rotator. The main difference between the standard and advanced rotator seems to be that with the advanced rotator, you can switch very easily between the rotation stop increments. With the standard rotator, it's necessary to change a brass ring inside the rotator to get different stops. However, I can tell you that you don't need to use the stops. The rotator can stop anywhere along the rotation if you want it to. The stops are just haptic feedback to tell you that you have rotated x degrees. I have mine set to provide the correct rotation for my 35mm lens which is what I almost always use with the NN. It's not that simple to change lenses anyhow because you also need to find the correct measurements to eliminate parallax for each lens and then move the camera along the rails on the arm. So I find it's easier to just use one lens and therefore I don't need to change the rotator stops either. If you do use multiple lenses and you'd like the haptic feedback of the rotator stops then maybe it's worth upgrading to the advanced rotator but as I said, for me it's not necessary. Hope this info helps you to make a decision. Diliff (talk) 12:17, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for this circumstantial answer. A very valuable answer for me. --Tuxyso (talk) 12:43, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
Do you use the stops to just help produce a reasonable number of overlapping images, or do you actually input the x-degree steps into PtGui/Hugin? I've read somewhere that this can be useful for really-high MP images that include sky -- where the software can't produce enough (or any) control points. But I worry how accurate this is compared to actual control points for areas where there is common detail. -- Colin (talk) 13:28, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
The rotator stops are only used as a quick and lazy way of ensuring that there is overlap. Rather than visually identifying overlap, you just rotate the head until it clicks (as I said though, if you use a different focal length, you can still use any rotation amount you like as there is sufficient stiffness in the rotator to hold the head steady virtually where ever you like. The rotator has the haptic feedback of a small rare earth magnet so it locks into place when you get very close to the stop, but is unaffected at any other time during the rotation. I still let PTGui do the control point matching. With blank sky, I usually just manually drag the sky images into roughly the correct location (I assume Hugin can do the same) and let smartblend sort the blending out. If there's nothing for control points to lock onto, there's also nothing to be screwed up by poor alignment. ;-) Diliff (talk) 13:58, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Meeting in FranceEdit

Hello, as first excuse my very bad english! I look forward to meet you in France at European Parliament. To me are your pictures ("really Diliffs") the greatest here in Commons. It is my honor, to take Photos with you there. The aspect of "Europe" is now truly global with you from Australia ;) We have already photographed many politicians in Germany, it's a good idea to make it now in Europe. See you in Strasbourg. --Ralf Roleček 22:46, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Ralf, thank you very much for your kind words. How did you know I was going to be involved in the photography in the European Parliament? I didn't know that the details of the volunteers had been announced. (I haven't heard anything yet myself). As for my photos, I have quite a lot of experience with landscape and cityscape photography but I'm not so experienced with portraiture, so I will probably take some advice from you as you've 'been there, done that' before. :-) I'm looking forward to the experience though, it should be interesting. Diliff (talk) 23:36, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
You are a great photographer and I admire your pictures. Yes, portraits of politicians are something other than buildings, houses do not run away. Houses must not nice smile. But the whole thing is not magic. As an experienced photographer, it is for you perhaps unusual but not difficult. I photograph portraits for 30 years and you will learn that too quickly.
I am one of the organizers of Strasbourg, you're in! More than later. --Ralf Roleček 00:06, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
