Hallo, herzlich willkommen.

Ich hab dein Bild von den Steinböcken auf der Roten Wand gesehen. Ich war selbst vor einer Woche dort, hab aber keinen gefunden. Sind die schwer aufzutreiben? Sind die immer an bestimmten Orten? Oder bist du einfach drüber gestolpert? mfg. -- 12:58, 21 May 2007 (UTC) Ich war jetzt ca. das dritte Mal auf der Roten Wand (Steiermark) und habe sie jedesmal gesehen. Diesmal auf der Wiese südwestlich vom Gipfelkreuz.--IKAl 16:42, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Image of centurionEdit

Hi, I found your picture - Image:GrabmedaillonCanturio.jpg and wanted to use it in an article on the English wikipedia. However, you do not mention in your image description what year this relief is from - do you know the date it was made? many thanks - Dan 17:53, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately not. I found the figure in a museum here in Graz with Roman findings from the region (Styria, Austria). No date is given. --IKAl 08:20, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Now I found et least some date in a folder showing the Grabmedaillon: 2nd century.--IKAl 10:02, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Hello, IKAl!

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]]

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.

now categorised, thank you for the info. --IKAl (talk) 18:16, 16 June 2009 (UTC)


...and file:BrunneraMacrophylla2.jpg, file:BrunneraMacrophylla3.jpg has been identified as Omphalodes verna. I have moved them but the file names are the same. Uleli (talk) 18:55, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the information. The same must be true then also for File:BrunneraMacrophylla.jpg. --IKAl (talk) 18:15, 6 September 2011 (UTC)



My name is Edoardo Bit, I am an architect and also a “young researcher” of the University of Ferarra (Italy).

I am writing a book on the “green walls technologies” and I have found very interesting a photo in your page. So, I would kindly ask you if I can use it in my book.

Obviously, if you gently decide to grant me the permission, your name (or your nickname) and the link of the picture will be correctly cited in the credits of my publication.

The photo which I would use is:

Thank you very much! I hope you will attend my request…

My e-mail is:



Hi Edoardo, please use my Foto, I really would like it. I will write you an Email with my real name, and you can use also my real name, if you want to. Thank you for asking

Thanks for uploading File:Judendorf-Straßengel.png. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Nicht fairEdit

Hi, zu behaupten, File:IKAl 20130126 Trisetum flavescens.jpg wäre dein Werk, ist ja nunmal gelinde gesagt nicht ganz richtig. Findest du es anderen Leuten gegenüber fair, sowas als dein Werk auszugeben? Daß du das 1885 veröffentlich hast, erscheint eher unwahrscheinlich. Bitte stelle das richtig. Marcus Cyron (talk) 16:39, 26 January 2014 (UTC) PS: und dann sollte dein Nick auch nicht im Namen der Datei stehen.

Naja, ich habe es überarbeitet und angegeben, woher es kommt, auch bei der Verwendung im Artikel, die ja jetzt wegen der falschen Zuordnung obsolet ist. Aber fühl Dich frei, es so richtig zu stellen, wie Du es für angemessen empfindest. --IKAl (talk) 17:14, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Eventuell auch löschen, da es für die Art genug bessere Illustrationen gibt, wäre das nur fair. --IKAl (talk) 17:34, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Und noch besser wäre es endlich die Option: "abgeleitetet Objekt hochladen", siehe unten, zu reparieren, und dann kann man sich aufregen.--IKAl (talk) 17:39, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Es ist ein abgeleitetes Werk einer Datei aus Commons (NICHT zu empfehlen, siehe ausführliche Benutzungshinweise wegen Fehlern, immer noch aktuell – Januar 2014 – ).== Please replace File:IKAl Passiflora coccinea 1.jpg ==

{{Edit request}} This page is protected while posting this message. Please replace File:IKAl Passiflora coccinea 1.jpg with File:IKAl Passiflora miniata 1.jpg because File renamed: Thank you. Message by MediaWiki:Gadget-GlobalReplace.js -- Uleli (talk) 04:05, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
