Thank You that you added me to confirmed users, so after that I really succeeded to upload my first work. The quality of Nokia Lumia 630 was so-so and after converting into WebM format on www.online-convert.com it became as water paintings at all, but in future I will have good experience how to work on Wikimedia Commons Upload Wizard. --PoetVeches (talk) 17:19, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

A little bit later, there also video clip (the same video, but much more longer version, about 300 MB) was uploaded there, that i had been trying to upload over video2commons converter into the same WebM format, but this has a little bit better quality, in all, this is very interesting experience for me.

HI dear Jdx,

I am writing to ask you if you could pass this list to the commons undeletion request, I unfortunately can not do it directly, because I would delete it for no reason, I can ask you if you could kindly pass this list on that file restore page, and if he felt then he would have to take a look to see if there is any file that would have the appropriate information to restore files, the files in question, are only portraits and paintings from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. all of PD-100 license--79.31.200.33 20:09, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2017 is open!

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2017 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in R2.

Dear Jdx,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2017 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the twelfth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2017) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top 2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2017.

Round 2 will end on 22 July 2018, 23:59 UTC.

Click here to vote now!

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 11:33, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Translation verification

Hi Jdx, again I need professional help because I do not know anything about the Polish language. There exists a category SVG coat of arms elements - escutcheon shapes, containing currently two subcategories as you can see; one is SVG coat of arms elements - ejemplos españoles, and the other one with a lot of Polish work is just called SVG coat of arms elements - escutcheon shapes 2 which is telling nothing. I am thinking to change it to a more specific name, e.g. SVG coat of arms elements - polskie tarcze herbów; but before I do that I ask you whether that is 1) correct due to Polish grammar, and 2) a good describing name. May be you have a better idea?. To the other name "ejemplos españoles" someting like 'Polish examples' would fit better. Every suggestion for a short, well describing and correct name is most welcome! -- sarang사랑 07:34, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

@Sarang: It should be SVG coat of arms elements - polskie tarcze herbowe. But I think that according to COM:CAT#Category names both subcategories should be named in English, i.e. "Polish examples" and "Spanish examples". --jdx Re: 06:40, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Give your feedback about changes to Special:Block

Hello,

You are receiving this message because you are a top user of Special:Block on this wiki. Thank you for the important work that you do. There is a discussion happening about plans to improve Special:Block with the ability to set new types of blocks. To get the best design and new functions added, it is essential that people who use the tool join the discussion and share their opinions about these changes.

Instead of a full site wide block, you would be able to set a Partial Block. A user could be blocked from a single page, multiple pages, one or more namespaces, from uploading files, etc. There are several different ways to add this feature to Special:Block. Right now Important decisions are being made about the design and function.

Please review the page on Meta and share your feedback on the discussion page. Or you can reach me by email Also, share this message with anyone else who might be interested in participating in the discussion.

I appreciate any time that you can give to assist with making improvements to this feature. Cheers, SPoore (WMF) (talk) , Trust and Safety Specialist, Community health initiative (talk) 02:00, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, may I ask you again? A better version in Created with Adobe Illustrator/sandbox needs to be transferred into production. It is not urgent but should be done sometime. Thank you, -- sarang사랑 15:55, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

@Sarang: Should {{SVG created with/doc}} be called with sandbox=yes? --jdx Re: 09:35, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes - I think it might be good if the "sandbox"-box is displayed by the documentation, in the case of Adobe (and also of Inkscape, but that later). -- sarang사랑 09:57, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
@Sarang: OK, done. --jdx Re: 06:55, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. In the meantime the servers are not anymore stressed by the new Adobe version, so I can ask you to transfer the other much-used template Created with Inkscape/sandbox. It will make some things better, so it will be fine to replace it. -- sarang사랑 08:45, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

You can see a talking about this on my User Talk. There is no reason for war. --VAP+VYK (talk) 16:32, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

There wasn't any objections because of my edits. I discussed this theme with two users (see my UserTalk), they didn't object. I don't see any consensus for returning the old version. --VAP+VYK (talk) 16:51, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

MOTD

Hi. I added you to a ping from Admin Noticeboard with regard to an issue. The contributions of the user concern me with their interaction with MOTD as their personal opinion seems contrary to a quality and consensus approach that we would take: looking at uploads, self-nom for admin, and discussions. I am removed from MOTD so don't feel qualified to comment on processes utilised, though thought that my disquiet should be broached.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:39, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Africa

The Wiki Loves Africa 2017 photographic contest is officially closed. Thank you all for your participation !

This year, the photographic competition has resulted in an amazing 18,294 image uploads to Commons around the theme People at Work.
International winners have been announced !!! Check it out on Commons:Wiki Loves Africa 2017/Winners. Congratulations to winners and all those who participated and organised events. More national winners are yet to be announced.
Please follow us on Facebook to know more and stay informed next year.

There are several fun ways you can help us to make the impact of Wiki Loves Africa stronger:

  • Add more categories to your images so that people will find them to use them in articles ... you can see how to do this here: Quick Guide to Categories on Commons
  • Improve the images description to make them easier to understand and reuse.
  • Add your image to a relevant Wikipedia article, i.e. if your image shows a tailor sewing, then add the image to an article on Sewing or Tailors - this allows readers to see different global perspectives of a universal subject. You can see how to do this here: How to insert images into Wikipedia using WikiText
  • If there is no article that reflects the subject of your images, then start an article about that subject. If you are a new editor, you can see how to do that here: Creating your first article
  • Add more images - you can add more images or media that reflect interesting and encyclopedic subjects in your immediate community.
  • Use the images produced during the contest. Here is a short link to the best ones : c:Category:Best images from Wiki Loves Africa 2017

We look forward to seeing your contributions!!

Warmest,

Hi, my talk indicates that you erased my file PFiat126p.jpg under to alleged copyright violation "Screenshot from a copyrighted movie, as the description says". I made myself and posted the file from the edited copy of the movie under assumption that it does not violate the copyright of copyrighted movie in that case because the movie shot displays the mass popular item in Poland and the shot was exclusive used in the context of the article about this item (the car) and that it was used on the copyrighted movie plan.

Bielsk Podlaski station

 
the slide before

This clearly looks like the same station. As far as i can reconstruct from the other slides (some are of people from my group, so I have to respect portrait rigths), the day was spent travelling from are camping place in the Białowieża forest, (problably close to the Białowieża Grundki train station) to the starting point for the kanoe trip on the Bug river. We certainly stopped in Hajnówka and spend a long time waiting for a bus in Bielsk Podlaski.Smiley.toerist (talk) 11:58, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

@Smiley.toerist: Yep, it is the same station. This photo shows this corner 20 years later. The rails are on the other side of the building. --jdx Re: 12:40, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Happy New 2019

  Happy New 2019
Pan de jamón and Hallaca are a typical Christmas dish of my country, and I would like to share it with you, wishing you the best year 2019.. I would like to give you this humble recognition. Happy year 2019 dear!!! Photographer 01:44, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Starting point of kano trip

I have uploaded more images in Category:Smiley Toerist 1991 Poland trip. I can reconstruct that we left Bielsk Podlaski busstation to take a local bus somewhere along the river. Do you know the buslines in 1991 (the busplatform where the tourist are waiting is maybe a clue) or recognize the river images? Wich PKS category can be used?Smiley.toerist (talk) 11:34, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

@Smiley.toerist: Unfortunately, I don't remember bus lines to the south from that time. And I don't think that there has ever been a direct line from Bielsk to a place like Mielnik or Drohiczyn. I guess that from Bielsk you went to Siemiatycze and then took another bus, perhaps to Mielnik (although other places are possible). Perhaps a look at the map could remind you where did you start the canoe trip. --jdx Re: 16:03, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
I am further along with scanning the slides. The location of the bridge is known. This place with two churches must be recognizable.Smiley.toerist (talk) 22:35, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@Smiley.toerist: The place with two churches is Drohiczyn that I mentioned before. The church in the middle is Drohiczyn Cathedral and the church on the left is All Saints church. The building in front of the cathedral is the registrar's office of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Drohiczyn. Here is the map. Anyway, because you took the photo of the bridge in Fronołów, I bet that you started the trip in Mielnik. --jdx Re: 23:22, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@Smiley.toerist: A note about Drohiczyn 1991 72.jpg and Drohiczyn 1991 74.jpg – this is not All Saints church but Drohiczyn Cathedral, more formally known as Holy Trinity Cathedral. The yellow building is registrar's office. --jdx Re: 13:32, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

New Request for talk page protection

Hello there. If it is possible, can you please upgrade my user rights to extended-confirmed, and then apply Extended-Protection to my talk page for 1 year? (Similar to the type of page protection at the Donald Trump article). The ROXELANA22 LTA has returned after the expiration of his Global IP rangeblock, and he's making a mess on my talk page again. Other forms of page protection appear to be ineffective. If this isn't possible, then only blocks + Global locks will be effective against this LTA. Thank you.

File:Havrat Neve Zedek.jpg

Dear Jdx,

I am Yael's assistant, and deal with copyright infringement issues in this image.

Therefore, we need a full name on the page of the image.

There is nothing wrong with the introduction of this name in terms of the policy of the Wikimedia Foundation. And the removal of the name harms copyright infringement proceedings by both the photographer and the Wikimedia Foundation.

Therefore, I ask you to return the edit, or alternatively prevent future deletion of the artist's full name.

Category:Railway line 542 (Poland)

This is the number I see on my railatlas but I see other railway line numbers wich dont match. The railway line is not in use anymore.Smiley.toerist (talk) 15:38, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

@Smiley.toerist: OK, but what is your question? It seems that line 542 still exists and is in use. This line is łącznica, that is a short line which connects two other lines, 14 and 131 in this case. Till 2008 it was 7 km long, now it is about 3,5 km. --jdx Re: 18:30, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
I am talking of the historic railway line between Ostroleka, Ostrow Mazowiecka, Malkinia, Treblinka en Siedlce. On Google Earth the section between Ostroleka and Malkinia still extist, however the bridge over the Bug river has been replaced by a road and the railway between Malkinia and Kostki has been replaced biy a road and/or broken up. I am using the nummering used in a railway map in 1993. In some countries railway lines are frequently renumbered and reordered, as lines are broken up and lines and connections created. And dont know want the Commons policy is on the nummering of Polish railway lines. Or are only the railway lines in use categorized? It can get confusing when artikels are written over historic lines where sections are broken up. Is there an accepted where the numbers are used? Look at Category:Railway lines in Belgium: A 1932 map is used as reference for the Commons and the Dutch and French articles over railway lines.Smiley.toerist (talk) 20:41, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
@Smiley.toerist: This is line 34. The section between Ostrołęka and Małkinia is still called line 34. The section between Małkinia and Sokołów Podlaski was disassembled in the first decade of the current century (the embankment near the bridge over Bug, i.e. between Małkinia and Kosów Lacki has been used for road 627). The section between Sokołów Podlaski and Siedlce in 2004 was renamed to line 55. BTW. Which Kostki are you talking about? This one, near Sokołów Podlaski? --jdx Re: 22:31, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

The last uploads

I uploaded the last files for the Category:Smiley Toerist 1991 Poland trip. (there are other pictures, but they are more group pictures and out of scope) Wich streets and squares in Warsaw I dont know. In the latter part of the river I used the Category:1991 in Masovian Voivodeship. Before that it is the border between two Voivodeships. I also uploaded Polish tram and rail pictures from 2011 (Category:2011 in tram transport in Poland and some pictures of 2014. I introduced many tram lines routes categories in Category:Tram lines in Upper Silesia. However I did not put the tram types in the rigth categories (Category:Rolling stock of Upper Silesian urban area tram.

File:Flag of Turkmenistan.svg

While I know you have protected the file, there is an issue with two of the hoist elements that was fixed with the edit on 16:27, 28 January 2019 that was missed. Also I have tried to work with the uploader on fixing the other files, but judging by what I saw in the edit history, it is more of reverting instead of pointing out fixes or allowing for fixes to occur.

THANK YOU FOR PROTECTION!!!! User talk:FDRMRZUSA.

That is the same user I had issues with on the Turkmen images. I noticed he hit images from Argentina as well but, I am not as versed (yet) on how accurate the images are. I think the issue I am running into is instead of the user letting us know what needs to be fixed where, he reverts and says "Oh, this is this way, so reverting" and without looking at history or seeing the context. Even if we make the changes as he asks us to, it gets changed again for some unknown or random reason (like moving the goalposts, if I can use an Americanism). I also find it strange his first edits was to revert images, but that is the former admin in me. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 02:07, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

File:Flag of Mozambique (1975-1983).svg and its "ALTERNATIVE VERSION"

Ciao,
on 24 February, I restored an old version of this file: File:Flag of Mozambique (1975-1983).svg >> (this), overwritten by user Arramall by his new version (without previous consensus according to COM:OVERWRITE), but I re-uploaded Arramall's version with this name: File:Flag of Mozambique (1975-1983) alternative version.svg.

On 25 February, Arramall restored his version on File:Flag of Mozambique (1975-1983).svg >> result: now "alternative version" is equal to its "original"!!!!

Can you (please!) to solver this discrepancy restoring this original Mozambican file (this) as File:Flag of Mozambique (1975-1983).svg or File:Flag of Mozambique (1975-1983) alternative version.svg and then locked the related file against further overwriting? >> reason: it is illogical that an "alternative version" is the same of its "original". Moreover it's better have two (or more) different versions available, it's right?

In my opinion Arramall want his version both as "original" and as "alternative version"!!

I remember you that the file restoring is this.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT ACTION JDX, I WANT AVOID (WISELY) EDIT WARS.

THANK YOU JDX, CIAO. User talk:FDRMRZUSA (25 February 2019; 15,45 UTC+1).

@FDRMRZUSA: Look closer at the cogwheel – the flags are not the same. And both look very similar to flags mentioned here, here or here. Although IMO the flags should be swapped, i.e. "original" should be "alternative" and vice versa because UN is IMO more reliable source. Ping @Arramall as involved party. --jdx Re: 18:47, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Red color tone for File:Coat of arms of Albania.svg

Ciao,
user "Sshu94" has corrected the red color tone for this flag: File:Flag of Albania.svg, according to the Albanian Parliament Law 8926 22.07.2002 (see pages 3-4 for red color tone).

Now, the Albanian coat of arms color tone, this File:Coat of arms of Albania.svg is not aligned to related national flag in violation of Law 8926 22.07.2002 (see page 11 for coat of arms red color tone).

Can you (please), it's possible, correct the red color tone for the coat of arms? >>> File blocked.

According to Law 8926 22.07.2002 the flag-coat of arms color tone must be identical: it's logical.

it is necessary renaming File:Coat of arms of Albania (1992-2002).svg (created by me yesterday) as "File:Coat of arms of Albania (1998-2002).svg", because otherwise there is a chronological overlap on File:Coat of arms of Albania (1992-1998).svg.

File:Peter Huang and Jason Lin 2015-04-10.jpg

Just curious but why did you delete File:Peter Huang and Jason Lin 2015-04-10.jpg? It was uploaded before the Nipponese Dog was banned from Wikimedia Commons and is within scope so there isn't much reason to delete it.

Also it was in use at several pages (including at a talk page of a Wikimedia Taiwan member to prove that another user is in fact not the Nipponese Dog), note that blocks and bans are preventative and not punitive and deleting content which was previously allowed as a punishment should not be allowed. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 08:20, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Lion of Judah.svg for Ethiopian flags

Ciao,
on 12 March 2019 I aligned the Lion of Judah to related lion in Ethiopian imperial coat of arms:   for the Ethiopian flags listed below. The design of this "lion" ( ) is undoubtedly better then previuos lion ( )
>>> My version is a true "imperial" lion for design elegance and details (mane, skin color, tongue, eyes, shining crown, etc.; instead previous lion is similar to "rottweiler dog" ( ) > bad svg design.
On 13 March 2019, an user ("Varavour") has reverted (see related file history) an obsolete and bad design version for this Ethiopian flags:

The situation is similar to "Bolivian flags" with user-vandal "Tio Dari", do you remember?

Thanks for help, I'm sorry because I didn't noticed something that's existing .--MaGa 16:40, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

I have to bother you again... I would like to change link Commons:Featured pictures to Commons:Featured pictures/hr in this template. It is a impossible mission for me, so if you could be kind to do it, I would be thankful...--MaGa 16:47, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

@MaGa:   Done. This template is really screwed up. Let me know if "Izabrane slike" is the proper form (singular or plural). --jdx Re: 11:10, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Izabrane slike is proper plural form.--MaGa 10:50, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Translating translation template

I saw you fixed translation of the {{Policy}} template at the top of Commons:De minimis by putting it into {{TNT}}. That worked, in the sense of getting a translation of {{Policy}} on the non-English pages, but it turns out that {{Policy}} should not be used on non-English pages. {{Translated policy}} should be used instead. I put in a bit of logic to use {{Policy}} if the page language is English and {{Translated policy}} otherwise, but it will not display in anything but English. Can you see what I am doing wrong? Thanks, Aymatth2 (talk) 14:54, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Ignore the above. The reason it did not show French or Spanish versions of the message is that they did not exist. Duh. It works now. Aymatth2 (talk) 16:35, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

No deletion (please)

Don’t remove the photo of my father from personal details because I myself took the photo once I was in Dhaka . I cropped its size because of unnecessary things surrounding him . Keep the photo the way it is . The remains photos I uploaded from our family albums. Professor Mohammad Abdullah (talk) 16:59, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

File:Strong iron mottling.jpg

Hi, Jdx, you placed a "missing permission" tag on File:Strong iron mottling.jpg that I have uploaded in 2013. I could not find a page to discuss this subject, so I write directly to you. This picture is made by myself when I worked on soil surveys in Jamaica. I did not copy it from the publication by Rob Henneman. (I have to confess I do not even have it) This author information was added by an anonymous user (User:137.224.252.11) on 29th March[2]. Of course I gave permission for my own work, so I corrected the information under source and permission. Herewith I would ask you to remove the Template:No permission since. Thanks, The Geo (talk) 10:38, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

@De Geo:   Done --jdx Re: 11:00, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

ER: Created with

Hi again, it's almost one year that we had the last change of the Template:Created with. Now I made some improvements of the category handling, and the content of Template:Created with/sandbox should replace the coding - as requested at the talk page. It is not urgent, but I will need it for further simplifications. May I ask you to do the copy?   Done
BTW, about one thousand national Created with-templates are not anymore used since more than a year, and they all can be deleted; their content is emptied. I heard the opinion that they should be kept for documentary reasons, which I cannot understand - IMHO they should be removed from the system because the have no use and may just irritate users not so well knowing what they are for. What is your idea: remove this garbage, or keep it "for documentation" of an outdated processing method? -- sarang사랑 13:51, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Вікі любить Землю 2019 в Україні триває до 31 травня!

Вітаємо!

З 1 по 31 травня триває сьомий конкурс «Вікі любить Землю» (Wiki Loves Earth), метою якого є фотографування пам'яток природи. Протягом травня ви можете завантажувати власні фото природно-заповідного фонду України та змагатися за призи. Зі списками пам'яток природи України можна ознайомитися тут. Приєднуйтеся!

Цього року є деякі зміни в правилах, зокрема:

  • фотографії пам'яток, які на момент початку конкурсу не мали жодної ілюстрації на Вікісховищі або у Вікіпедії, отримують коефіцієнт 10 в кількісній номінації. Якщо ви маєте фото ще не проілюстрованих пам'яток — це збільшить ваші шанси на перемогу;
  • окрема спецномінація для аерофотозйомки (фото з дронів тощо).

Більше інформації про конкурс читайте на сайті конкурсу. Якщо у Вас є запитання, можете звертатися wle wikimedia.org.ua – Оргкомітет «Вікі любить Землю» (in English). 22:28, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi. What did you do in this edit, which allegedly removed 127 bytes but shows nothing in the diff?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 11:58, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

@Jeff G.: I have just reverted to the version from 10 July 2017 using popups. This issue (?) is related to structured data, or, more precisely, to file captions. When one creates a caption, not only the actual caption (text) is created, but also some additional, invisible, data. Then, when one removes the caption using the thrash can icon, only the text (caption) is removed, but not the additional data. Undo/revert removes all. Here is a better example. --jdx Re: 18:01, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for that info. It's very strange, because I also used undo in my previous edit, not the trash can. However, I haven't agreed to license my SDC contributions CC0, and of course I'm not an Admin.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 18:57, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: You have used regular undo, while I have used popups. You have undone one edit, while I have undone five, including yours and Nabil931260's, who also created "additional data". --jdx Re: 19:26, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 20:04, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
