File:Friedrich Amerling - The Young Eastern Woman - 1991.163 - Cleveland Museum of Art.tiffEdit

Why did you delete this file and not the other one? The convention on Commons has always been to delete the newer upload. In this case the licensing on the older file is also better. Multichill (talk) 15:11, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

And you did it again with File:Boston, from Southeast Expressway.jpg. Please be more careful. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 17:44, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Rocko picturesEdit

I got a bit disappointed with the lack of good pictures on the Rockingham area here so I decided to take a few and upload them here. The stormy days we had provided a good opportunity for some unusual pictures (see wrecked boats images). I'm a very average photographer at best and my own little camera did not survive swimming with the seals up at Jurien a few month ago (awesome experience!). I had to borrow my daughters. My wife got a good camera however and does great photos, I'm hoping I can get her to take some images for me. Catching up is not impossible but I'm flying out to the Pilbara tomorrow for a shut down. Are you still at the State Library a lot? If so, I might drop into the city for a day at some stage and we have a coffee. Calistemon (talk) 03:50, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Expedition 59 Soyuz MS-11 Landing (NHQ201906250003).jpgEdit

Hi JarrahTree, why did you remove the "original" and promote the "duplicate"? Expedition 59 Soyuz MS-11 Landing (NHQ201906250003).jpg is Bill Ingalls' original with less compression and the better color space Adobe RGB 1998. The other one is a sRGB high compression version from Johnson Space Center. Unfortunately now we have the technically worse image as standard not the better one. Regards --Ras67 (talk) 16:10, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for your efforts but Magog the Ogre does nothing, what's a pity. Warm regards! --Ras67 (talk) 15:51, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Seeing (A) for adminsEdit

How do you do that? Is it a gadget? Sounds handy. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 08:04, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Fremantle Ports or Harbour?Edit

I would like to gauge your opinion of Fremantle Ports and Harbour. The commons category is at Category:Fremantle Harbour and the English Wikipedia article is also at Fremantle Harbour. The official website however seems to be Fremantle Ports, which oversees the inner and outer Harbour, consisting of assets at Fremantle as well as at Kwinana. I've created a number of sub-categories, like Category:Kwinana Bulk Terminal and Category:Kwinana Bulk Jetty. The CBH Jetty further south is another that is part of the Port. Should all these be sub-categories of Fremantle Harbour or should a new master, Category:Fremantle Ports, be created? What is your opinion? Note that the Fremantle Harbour article also has some detail on the Outer (Kwinana) Harbour. Calistemon (talk) 11:12, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Palm Beach Jetty
What about Wednesday next week (17th)? I'm at work now (night shift) but back next Tuesday (but will be tired and grumpy that day from night shift). Wednesday is about the only day I have got. "Spill the beans" at Palm Beach Jetty would be a great place to catch up as, whether permitting, it actually is a great photo spot, too. If yes, bring your camera! I can pick you up from Rocko station if you don't want to drive. Calistemon (talk) 13:47, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
No worries, let me know when the day gets closer. Calistemon (talk) 13:55, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
have sent my number by email - give me a call!!! JarrahTree (talk) 23:21, 16 July 2019 (UTC)


Hi. Following your message I'm not sure City of Canning works are Government works (in this case the uploader must use {{PD-AustraliaGov}}). In my opinion these works are not Government works and only anonymous/pseudonymous works published before 1 January 1955 are in the public domain. Please read Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Australia for more details. If you don't agree with this rationale please feel free to open a regular deletion request. Kind regards, --Patrick Rogel (talk) 11:23, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

@Patrick Rogel, JarrahTree: The copyright in these works is owned by the City of Canning, and they are releasing them under a CC-BY-SA license. The OTRS permission is in the process of being lodged and the ticket number will be added to the uploads soon. The reason you've given for their deletion is that they have no source, but they do and it's correct (the City of Canning photographic collection). — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 11:26, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
the owner of the works is by definition under the act the employer as these photos were taken as part of an employee's duties. The fact the employer was the City of Canning is irrelevant and as such its nothing to do with pd-gov because its the copyright holder who has released the images under CC-by-SA.

The first ten images in Category:Western AustraliaEdit

Going through the images in Category:Western Australia and assigning them to a more suitable and precise category I can't make up my mind about the first ten images of this list. They are all about the HMAS Sydney and while there is of course the obvious connection with WA there is nothing in these images indicating a precise time and location for them. Quite possibly these were taken thousands of kilometres away from WA, I just don't know. What would you suggest, just remove the WA category altogether on those ten? Your advice would be appreciated. Calistemon (talk) 13:44, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

No worries, I will leave those ten to last, another 400 images to go, about 350 done. Calistemon (talk) 14:17, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Copyright questionEdit

Sorry, me again. This time I have a copyright question: File:Hon Matthew Swinbourn.jpg is copied from the WA Parliament website and I'm wondering what the copyright status is there. The Copyright and conditions of use page on the website sort of indicates it might be ok to use in the English Wikipedia article (where it isn't actually used) but I'm not sure it is fit for commons, especially under the current licence. I always struggle with copyright questions, do you know? Calistemon (talk) 08:28, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia takes Elizabeth QuayEdit

Hi, please be aware that gallery pages are required to have at least two images on it. Without, they are eligible for speedy deletion. Jcb (talk) 16:28, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Woodman Point & Munster, Western AustraliaEdit

I had a great opportunity this morning to take the dog around Woodman Point and uploaded some photos. Now, looking at the Woodman Point article on the English Wikipedia, it states that it is located at Munster, Western Australia. The Munster, Western Australia article there repeats that claim. My UBD for Perth as well as Google maps show Woodman Point squarely at Coogee. Munster only got the Woodman Light, as far as I can see, and no part of the Woodman Point Regional Park is located in that suburb. Am I missing something here or is the English Wikipedia just plain wrong? Calistemon (talk) 15:23, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Busy weekend, too. Just came back from camping at Lane Poole. Have to look at the photos to see what is worth uploading. Calistemon (talk) 09:22, 15 September 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for your email. I've put the contested logos on deletion. Kind regards, --Patrick Rogel (talk) 09:26, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
