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.

Thank you. Magog the Ogre (via OgreBot (talk) 03:21, 3 July 2018 (UTC))

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
