Hello, Edokter!

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.

CSSEdit

You seem to be an expert. That's rare here on commons. Therefore I wonder if you could quick-check MediaWiki:Gadget-GallerySlideshow.css and make a suggestion for the new code at its talk-page. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 19:33, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm pretty knowledgable, but this is a big gadget. I can't say for certain if that fix will work or not. Edokter (talk) — 09:55, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
I referred to this edit. My proposed fix seems to work; I tested it before. It's just that there are a lot of traps while working with CSS, which I do not know. -- RE rillke questions? 12:57, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Seems to be taken care of. Edokter (talk) — 21:47, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Autopatrol givenEdit

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. -- RE rillke questions? 11:01, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. Edokter (talk) — 12:19, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

D'oh!Edit

Thanks for fixing File:Ishiquiver.jpg. I'd forgotten to clear out the dimensions for my crop tool, hence the wonky size. On the plus side, that image was the perfect size for the sidebars on the website I've been working on all week... EVula // talk // // 07:02, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Original Barnstar
Hello,

I love your image of the lightbulb (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gluehlampe_01_KMJ.jpg) and I was hoping to use it in a book of my poems that is coming out next summer. I realize it's in the Creative Commons; however, it has the "Share Alike" license, I need to obtain written permission since the publisher would likely not issue the entire book with that license. You will of course be attributed and I would be happy to send you a copy of the book. Please let me know -- & thanks for the great pics! -Nate nshoks (at) gmail (dot) com Nshoks (talk) 14:10, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Note that I did not create that image, KMJ did. I only made a transparent version of it (Gluehlampe_01_KMJ.png). You should ask KMJ if he is willing to provide the image under a different license. Edokter (talk) — 17:45, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Horizontal_lists on CommonsEdit

Hi, I noticed that you are maintaining hlist section of en:MediaWiki:Common.css. Could you help with adding this code to css on Commons? See MediaWiki_talk:Common.css#Horizontal_lists. I can edit MediaWiki_talk:Common.css but since I do not speak CSS, I am looking for help from those that are more familiar with it. --Jarekt (talk) 18:24, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Personality rights templateEdit

Thank you for helping translating Template:Personality_rights/i18n last month. The template was (again) updated recently. Could you please help us again with updating the translation? You can find the version before the update in an older version of the translated page. whym (talk) 11:22, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Bullet-icon.svg still does not show full size on iosEdit

Hi the new updated image still does not show properly. It may be because of list-style-image. It may have to be replaced with background-image. But I doint know how that would work. 151.229.248.12 21:32, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Then it is an iOS issue. Using a background image as bullet is not without risk eihter, especially with regards to positioning. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 23:03, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
oh ok. Should this image go through to ferris and get approved even if it looks smaller on iOS it is still something and it is SVG and and issue with iOS itself then. 151.229.248.12 23:11, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Special:Diff/147868277Edit

Hello Edokter,
welcome to the word of Commons... we can not always name files the way we like it (or we have to go through the tedious task of renaming all the files).
In any case overwriting of files has to be done with extreme caution and only as a last resort.
Regards, --Patrick87 (talk) 20:59, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Oh, and please stop removing images from galleries without reason... Commons is a free image repository, so every image of the same type has the same right to be here... --Patrick87 (talk) 21:02, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
I do have reason; they are not used, and you only uploaded them because you didn't like the green bullets that are now in use. So in that regard, I would like to keep confusion levels as low as possible. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 21:07, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Exactly... and I'm still using those icons (they're part of my global.css). But what you don't get: That doesn't matter. We're on Commons here, a free repository for image content of any type. Even if those icons are not used right now, they are as good or as bad as any of the other bullet icons. Therefore the belong into this list exactly like the others do. Usage is not a point here! --Patrick87 (talk) 21:14, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
P.S: "The word "skin" in the description is necessary (how should the occasional user know that "Vector" and "Monobook" are MediaWiki skins?). --Patrick87 (talk) 21:03, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Template:Other versions/MediaWiki list bulletsEdit

Um, sorry, can you point me to a location where the green variations of those icons are actually used in the official MediaWiki distribution (that is not on some local Wikipedia or the like)?

If not: Can you explain to me why are you trying to mess up what was a compact and clear overview of MedaWiki-Bullets and modified MediaWiki-Bullets at Template:Other versions/HTML list bullets? Why are you trying to hide certain bullets on purpose, therefore deliberately messing up categorization? Commons is not about policy! --Patrick87 (talk) 10:11, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Look, I want to group a set of certain self-created icons, and I don't appriciate others coming in polluting that set; you created yours, I created mine. And in the the categories, nothing is hidden. And the green bullets may well be included in MediaWiki in the near future. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 11:04, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Well, you're free to do so, but please respect Commons:User-specific galleries, templates and categories policy and especially Commons:Ownership of pages and files.
You're free to additionally put files you created in a user gallery of yours (in your user space!) and certainly nobody will "pollute" it there. You're not free to build artificial boundaries between files (only because you might not like some versions you didn't create yourself) by removing a useful gallery representation of a complete set of similar files from only a subset of those files.
You're not new to Wikipedia so I don't understand why I have to bring it up here (maybe because it's even more important on Commons than it is on other projects): None of those files belongs to you (exactly as none of them belongs to me) so whatever is put on the file page is absolutely independent of any ownership you might feel! All those icons are exact copies of the original MediaWiki bullet icons with slight color variations, so they're all equivalent. This has to be reflected by any gallery-like compilation of those icons; any artificial pre-selection has no point and therefore no place on Commons (with the exception of your user space).
I'd favor if you'd take this as a suggestion in good faith and would put back the complete gallery of the set for those files where you have removed it. It would be a shame if your ego would get in the way of a complete, consistent, clean and simple gallery representation of the whole set of MediaWiki bullet icons and derivatives thereof... --Patrick87 (talk) 19:01, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Looking back how this all started, I'm not inclined to take your suggestion to heart. I created the green icons as a distinct supplement to existing Monobook and Vector skin bullets, with intent to make them part of the software, and they are categorized as such. They are used in concert with the default bullets on multiple projects (using CSS links, so not visible as file usage). Then you came along to complain about the color and create derivatives. But those were never picked up. So you'll just have to excuse me if I want to have the "official" icons organized without getting too complicated. If you must group them all togehter, at least separate your icons as being 'additional'. But in any case, someone else should review this matter, as you are just as involved. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 20:07, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
And on you go making this decision personal instead of being objective. Additionally you declare your versions as "official" just because you used (if not to say misused) your tools to put them in specific site CSS. However, right now they're not any more official than mine are, and you should accept that fact!
Even if at some point they actually become official (see side note) there's still no reason to not include modified bullet versions into the gallery (I'm open to mark every button not part of the default MediaWiki distribution as modified). There are many maintainers of MediaWiki installations who might not want to use the default colors and who would directly benefit from a gallery including a consistent set of all modified bullet versions for their convenience (in fact I know of a Wiki which uses very nice red bullets – mabye I should upload them too).
Side note: If by any chance you're trying to add your gren bullet versions by default in MediaWiki please tell me where I can complain, since my points from back then still stand: A green bullet with a gradient does not fit in with the default blue bullet without gradient... --Patrick87 (talk) 20:34, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
