The Dod page I took the image from didn't credit the actual copyright holder, but another page, found by Schlendrian, did. I didn't know this. I asked them how they found the other image. No reply so far. Geo Swan 17:56, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
see http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Schlendrian&diff=prev&oldid=9791782. It was purly coincidental that I knew this picture was credited to Northrop on navy.mil.

AfghanistanEdit

I was telling you before that you were adding too many categories to images relating to Afghanistan. Most of your uploads belong in Category:2001-present war in Afghanistan but you are wrongly putting Category:Afghanistan instead. Try to minimize categories by following the way I categorized your images. Thanks!--Executioner 09:23, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

And I believe I responded with a request that you provide specific examples of where you thought I had made lapses in judgment. Geo Swan 15:29, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
You've been using Commons since 2005, way before me, so you should know the rules here. See Commons:Categories on how to categorize images the right way. Your images of Afghanistan should not go in Category:Afghanistan directly, they should only be in Category:2001-present war in Afghanistan because "2001-present war in Afghanistan" is in Category:History of Afghanistan and "History of Afghanistan" is already in "Category:Afghanistan". All this creates confusion, do you understand this or do I have to further teach you?--Executioner 16:35, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Category:2001-present war in Afghanistan, not Category:Afghanistan? Sometime in the next 48 hours I will go through my uploads and check to see whether any of the uploads I made, and tagged under Category:Afghanistan should be in Category:2001-present war in Afghanistan.
Could you please make a greater effort to be polite? I know I for one would appreciate it. Geo Swan 06:41, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
I am an extremely polite person, what did I say that was not polite?--Executioner 10:09, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

OC-1 photos from the July 27 2002 skirmish...Edit

Three photos taken by GIs immediately following the skirmish where Omar Khadr was captured have been nominated for deletion by a contributor who I believe does not understand liscencing issues. These DoD images were published by the Toronto Star.

I pointed out that the images were uncredited.

The challenger seems to be claiming that, since the Toronto Star has a department where one can purchase rights to re-use some images they published they must own all the rights to the DoD images. Iwrote the following letter to the photo department. I've got a reply, that it has been forwarded to the editorial department:

An article about Omar Khadr, and the photo it was published with, have been removed from your web-site. The following URL is the version that (temporarily) remains in google's cache. http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:http://www.thestar.com/article/326337
And this URL is the obfuscated URL of the image. http://multimedia.thestar.com/images/d6/9b/2309531c4880b8acb15cf74ea6fd.jpeg
I have a couple of questions.
First -- unlike most images you publish, this one was not credited. All photos taken by employees of US Federal Agencies are automatically in the public domain, correct? This image, because it was taken by a GI, is in the public domain, correct? When you republish a public domain image, do you ordinarily state it is in the public domain where you would normally credit the copyright holder?
Second -- if my understanding of public domain and images that are the work of US Federal employees is incorrect, how much are you charging for a copy of that image?
Third -- was the article removed, after just a few days, because of pressure from US officials? Was it removed because it is so strong?

user: Executioner falsifying ethnicity category on Image:S. J. al-Afghani.jpgEdit

Hello. user: Executioner (banned user: NisarKand on the enWiki) is making false claims on that picture. Not a single source mentions him being Pashtun and scholarly sources that I've provided say that he was from Iran. Yet, Executioner, as a Pashtun nationalist, insists that that individual was Pashtun. Can you please give your input on this on the picture's talk page and also on the ANI? I would really appreciate that. Thanks. Le Behnam 20:49, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

I uploaded a new version that I have lightened the nozzle area. See if that looks better on your system.

A "calibrated monitor" is one that has been calibrated to industry standards. I use a Colorvision Spyder2 to calibrate mine. Google monitor calibration.

Re. Could you please explain more fully...Edit

You're absolutely correct. Thank you for pointing it out. I obviously looked too quickly at the images. It's not clear to me the value in having two almost identical images on the project, but that's just a personal opinion, and certainly neither image merits deletion. To the extent that there is some significant difference between the two that I am just missing, perhaps you could add a reference to it in the image description. Otherwise, I've removed the tag and sorry to have put you to any trouble. Cheers. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 12:22, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Do you realy want this image deleted? They are different and we can keep them both. I deleted the 3rd image per your Userrequest, but if you want to have it here i can restore it. One reason is maybe, that we have Goderham1+2 and 4-6 now, the 3 is missing ;) --Martin H. (talk) 09:52, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, if we kept it, I anticipate other people might challenge whether it belongs here when it is so similar to Image:Gooderham4.jpg. And I can't think of a good reason. I didn't upload all my Gooderham pictures, and I probably should have exercised greater editorial control and only uploaded one of those two. You are right, some future readers might wonder why #3 was missing. But, your entry in the deletion log is pretty clear, so I don't see that as a real problem.

Hello Geo Swan/archive/2008!

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. BotMultichillT (talk) 22:46, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

explanationEdit

I asked User:J.smith to explain why he or she deleted Image:First 20 Guantanamo captives.jpg based on the claim it was an exact duplicate -- when it was not an exact duplicate. Image talk:First 20 Guantanamo captives.jpg was not deleted at the same time -- not should it have been, since it contained important information about this iconic image. I am recording this here now in case some robot deletes it too, as the talk page of a deleted image, before the original is restored. Geo Swan (talk) 01:45, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

It was just a procedural deletion of a low-resolution version of an image that we have a high-resolution copy of. I'm more then happy to undelete it if you want. I'm just having a hard time seeing what the low resolution image offered that the high resolution doesn't have? --J.smith (talk) 02:44, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

NotesEdit

Hello Geo Swan, two short notes:
1. File:Icy lagoon in Eastern Greenland.jpg was already uploaded to Commons (I deleted your redundant upload from today therefore).
2. Please don't add Category:Geotagged to files. Geotagged images automatically go to Category:Media with locations.
Thanks :-) --:bdk: 15:53, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Shipping imagesEdit

I noticed you've been getting some great ship images from Flickr. But you've been downloading the low-resolution version. If you click "All sizes" above the picture on flickr and download it at the Original resolution, you get a much richer image. Best and thanks again. MBisanz talk 04:18, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

FlickrBot runs a bit infrequently, so a bunch of us hand-review the images. Also helps catch people who upload blatant copyvios to flickr, license them there under CC and then upload to Commons. Lastly, some Flickr people change their licenses, so certifying the image as quickly as possible tends to ensure we can keep it. MBisanz talk 04:43, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I will be more careful. Cheers! Geo Swan (talk) 04:58, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

File:Resolute Bay Airport.jpgEdit

You uploaded two versions of File:Resolute Bay Airport.jpg, I reverted to the one that matched the Flickr link, but you may need to find and upload to a different name the other image. MBisanz talk 04:33, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I was [File talk:Resolute Bay Airport.jpg being lazy again.] Geo Swan (talk) 04:57, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
I LOVE being lazy!!! MBisanz talk 05:20, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

IcebreakerEdit

You reverted the recat of the Argentine icebreaker. It is categorised under Icebreakers and Icebreakers of Argentina. That is not according the standard policy. --Stunteltje (talk) 21:59, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
