ISS-55 Kilauea volcano ash plume (1).jpg and otherEdit

Hallo Howcheng, why did you remove the category Satellite pictures of Hawaii? The image shows the whole island and not only the erupting Kilauea. I thought that this "over categorizing" is allowed. Warm regards --Ras67 (talk) 21:19, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

@Ras67: This is not the type of over-categorization that OVERCAT discusses. If, for example, there was a smaller island off the coast of Hawaii and was included in the picture, then you could also put it in Category:Satellite pictures of Hawaii as well. Does that make sense? howcheng {chat} 03:43, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Are you sure that this photo was taken in 1996?--Kai3952 (talk) 14:26, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

@Kai3952: Could have been early 1997. I was living in Taipei from November 1996 to March 1997. howcheng {chat} 17:20, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Daily gallery updater has failed on User:Howcheng/Recent uploads/HawaiiEdit

Hello. This message is to inform you that a daily gallery in your userspace, User:Howcheng/Recent uploads/Hawaii, has failed. Due to software limitations, the bot has a hard upper-limit of about 6000 files per day (including overflow galleries), while your gallery had 19444 files.

This usually happens because a gallery is too broad, encompassing too many subcategories. Please review the logs here and request that a subcategory be excluded, or narrow your category choice(s).

Please make your request for removal within 4 days, or your gallery will be subject to removal.

ommons:Deletion requests/File:Interview 16 October 1957 of Dale Whittaker and Wesley B. Harding re Sputnik-1 observations with recording of the satellite.wavEdit

Clearly I am not a wikipedia power user. I just want this historical interview to be available. I've reached out to KATL for permission/a license/whatever I need. I would appreciate a clue about how one would obtain and document a license from a third party. I've looked at the CC page and figure that the Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International. But, if I do get their agreement, how do I satisfy you that I really have it? Do I need to have them sign a printed copy of the license and put up a scan? Seriously, after reading for about an hour, I really don't know how to (formally) get a license and how to document it on the link/file. thank you Ben — Preceding unsigned comment added by Volga89 (talk • contribs) 17:36, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Kalani Pe'aEdit

Aloha, The image you flagged was a image I took with my cell phone. Yes, it is the same image all over the web - because we cleared it for them to use. I have the original on my cell phone. Pls advise. Allanbcool (talk) 11:10, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

@Allanbcool: OK, from my end I can't tell the difference between you having the image on your phone and you downloading it from the Internet (especially because you are a new user), so sorry about that. Is it possible for you to upload the full-size version? That way it will be larger than anything else available on the Internet. Also, please go to https://tools.wmflabs.org/relgen/ and you can declare yourself as the copyright holder of the image. I've never used the tool myself, but it's supposed to be pretty easy. Thanks! howcheng {chat} 16:58, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Reinstating ImagesEdit

Moved here from User talk:Howcheng/Archive2.Odysseus1479 (talk) 02:54, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello. I received a notification from you that several images I uploaded last month were removed due to copyright policy violations. I work for a company that has several clients in the vacation rental industry and they have given us permission to upload those images that they provided and credit them for it. Is there any way to get them re-added to wikimedia commons? Would I need to get declarations from our clients? If our clients somehow provided copyrighted material without our knowledge, please let me know.

I added the file names below for the sake of reference:

File:Rocks by the Ocean.jpg File:Scenic Maui Beach.jpg File:Bay pool in Hawaii.jpg File:Pool and flowers.jpg File:Iron Boardwalk in Hawaii.jpg File:Jamaican Ocean View.jpg File:Jamaica Shoreline.jpg File:Jamaica Sea.jpg File:Jamaican Water.jpg File:Torrey pines view.jpg File:Sunset over California.jpg File:San Diego Sunset.jpg File:Surfer kid.jpg File:USS Midway in Harbor.jpg — Preceding unsigned comment added by BizWitwiki (talk • contribs) 00:55, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

@BizWitwiki: Hi, they have to agree to allow anyone to use these images for any purpose (including commercial ones): please read https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0 for details. If that's acceptable to them, then you may upload the images again, and then they need to go to https://tools.wmflabs.org/relgen/, which will log their permissions.

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

Vinyl AlbumsEdit

I saw randomly this delete request that you closed. Maybe you can answer me: all similar vinyl/photos like this and this can be uploaded? Thanks in advance. Sincerely, --Chrishonduras (talk) 09:56, 7 April 2020 (UTC)

@Chrishonduras: Those look fine to me, but they're so generic that I don't see how useful they would be. howcheng {chat} 00:06, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
I noted, all are very "generic". But maybe it's better have that don't have nothing since we have some Wikipedia's versions without fair use. Thanks again, --Chrishonduras (talk) 01:28, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
Hi again. Sorry for disturbing. I just uploaded a couple of those vinyl labels. But i'm not sure if some of them now are acceptable. For example (i can see now, that the Maverick's logo could be a problem) and others with more details: 1, 2, 3 or this that I noted its a CD after all. If they have copyright you could delete it, or you can let me know what I can do . Sincerely, --Chrishonduras (talk) 04:53, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
