I'm aware that this template is used for identical images and I always use it for that purpose. However, in the case of the photos of the US National Weather Center in Norman Oklahoma (see below), I made an exception as they are not only of the same objet but from the same angle. Differences are minimal and those three photos are representing essentially the same thing. So there is no need to keep three images that are identical and filling up the memory of Wikipedia for nothing.

Hi, we only deleted duplicate images for clean-up and maintenance reasons. But they are not really deleted, just hidden from view. Since these photos are very different (at leas the colors of 1,2 vs.3; and the angle of 1 vs. 2,3), I would simply not care, if there aren’t other reasons supporting deletion.

Dupplikate löschen

Hi, beim verschieben von einigen Dateien ist bei ein paar ein seltsamer Fehler aufgetreten und die Datei-Beschreibungsseiten sind jetzt doppelt da (neuer und alter Name). Kannst du die löschen? Die Seiten sind:

Mfg, Michi

Erledigt. Schau nochmal drauf aber soweit ich sehe, sollte das Problem damit gelöst sein. Grüße --h-stt !? 10:32, 18 May 2012 (UTC)


You caused quite a mess when you deleted this file. Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Reichstagsbrand.jpg is the deletion request you're basing this on. Here there's only talk about pd-old, not the reasoning in the permission field. No clear copyright violation, so no speedy deletion. Could you please clean up the mess? Multichill (talk) 22:13, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Why would I? The Bundesarchiv-License is obviously wrong. It is credited by the Bundesarchiv to ADN, a photo- and news-agency that did not exist at the time the photo was taken and with not a hint of a line of licensing how this GDR-agency could have acquired the rights. All the licenses are faulty or fraudulent, the file needs to be deleted. --h-stt !? 10:15, 18 May 2012 (UTC) PS: Now: Commons talk:Licensing#Licensing problems with ubiquitously used image

Minoan frescos

Hi. I have replied to your message to me on my discussion page.Botteville (talk) 16:40, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

PS I knew it! There is a reason for all this confusion, and I will tell you what it is. There is about a three-day lag in commons work. That is, between the time you enter a change and the time when it shows up to the population at large is about 3 days. When I first noticed it I incorrectly concluded they were not putting my changes in. When I logged in I saw that they were visible in my login's copy. Eventually what is in my or your login gets promulgated generally. Meanwhile, what seems to have happened is that one and the same picture can have different subcategories depending on the category you access it from. What a headache! "The Cows" for example has a different set of subcategories under Minoan and Akrotiri. That can't be. There is only one picture. It has to have the same categories no matter where it is. This has happened because your change has not yet generally been implemented in Commons. The systems people are behind! So, what do we do now. Well, I can't do anything with it until I see how it looks when all the changes have been fully implemented. If feel that if you had seen the effects of your changes on those pictures that you altered, you would have realized you were wrong. The pictures can't go under Akrotiri archaeological site, because I intended that for site pictures only. They go in another subcategory of Akrotiri minoan site; that is, the museum of Thira. We don't need two Akrotiri minoan sites! If everything is to go under Archaeological site of Akrotiri, what was the point of subcategorizing Akrotiri minoan site? I would like to distinguish the site pictures from the frescos, so if you would respect that I would appreciate it.Botteville (talk) 18:03, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
I received your demands that I revert everything I did as well as your accusations. I feel I have been more than polite you you. You are abusing your position as administrator. 1) Stop harassing me 2) resign your position as administrator on the English WP immediately. You will find more on my talk page. No talk is really possible at your level of rudeness. Leave me alone.Botteville (talk) 14:41, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Falscher Name

Es ist lange her, dass ich hier Bilder hochgeladen habe. Deshalb weiß ich nicht mehr, wie man einen falschen Dateinamen korrigiert. Es handelt sich um Johan von Bevern.JPG. Der Mann heißt "Johan von Brevern". Da fehlt also ein "r". Wie repariert man sowas? Fingalo (talk) 08:55, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Ich habe es verschoben. Die Rechte dazu habe ich dir praktischer Weise gleich gegeben, du müsstest also ab sofort einige neue "Knöpfe" haben. Grüße --h-stt !? 09:01, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Vielen Dank. Hab' ich. Fingalo (talk) 09:55, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Category:Boulder Worldcup Munich 2012

Thanks for these beautiful images and videos. Nice job. --Rotpunkt (talk) 10:07, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

So, ich habe eben die letzten Bilder (von der Siegerehrung) hochgeladen. Ich habe vor, zwei der Videos bei Bouldern einzusetzen: Anna Stöhr und Melissa Le Neve am W3-Final Boulder. Weil man da sehr schön sehen kann, worin die Unterschiede zwischen der Weltranglisten 1 und der 6. liegen - nicht nur in der Laufzeit der Videos von 23 sec to 1:10. Bitte mach ansonsten aus dem Material was du willst. Mir hat es großen Spaß gemacht, den Event zu fotografieren und zu filmen. Grüße --h-stt !? 10:12, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Hi, despite of nickname, I am italian, however I have translated with google ;) I surely will use a lot of these images. --Rotpunkt (talk) 10:43, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. Please ask me for a translation if you need anything in English. rgds --h-stt !? 11:14, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
