Misidentification of Image:Medicago_lupulina_kz1.jpgEdit
Your photograph Image:Medicago_lupulina_kz1.jpg does not show Medicago lupulina but a Trifolium species. The flowers of Medicago lupulina look quite different (see e. g. Image:MedicagoLupulina.jpg) and the stalks of the individual flowers are very short so that the inflorescence looks more compact than an inflorescence of a similar Trifolium species. I added a remark in the index page and also in the image discussion page. I suggest that you move your image to Category:Unidentified_Trifolium and rename it accordingly.

Witam. Probówałem znaleźć email do Ciebie, ale chyba go nie podałeś w preferencjach pl.Wiki i piszę tu. Mimo wielu propozycji do Ciebie chciałbym ponowić prośbę byś rozważył otrzymanie przycisków na pl.Wiki. Twój wkład jest spory, jest regularny a bycie sysopem na pewno ułatwiłoby Ci pracę. Nie wiem czy wyobrażasz sobie pracę administratora jako osoby, która niesamowicie ciężko pracuje, ale to tylko wynika z nazwy tej funkcji. Bycie sysopem jest po prostu ułatwieniem twojej pracy na Wikipedii, która jest regularna i spora jak na resztę wikipedystów. Pragnę Ci przypomnieć słowa adminship is not big deal, a także aktywny i godny zaufania uczestnik projektu, który pomaga innym. Masz spory elektorat i zaufanie społeczności. To ty przedstawiałeś chłodne nastawienie i pomoc w moim początkach edytorskich jakimi były dyskusje PDA i PAnM. Chciałbym Ciebie zgłosić na PUA na pl.Wiki, jeśli uważasz że rekomendacja nie powinna wyjść ode mnie to ja już widzę las rąk. Przemyśl moje słowa i pamiętaj że bycie adminem ma Ci pomóc, a nie być twoim brzemieniem. Oferuję także swoją pomoc jeśli byś chciał. JDavid (talk) 12:04, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
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.
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]]
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.

Are sure that this and the other pictures like this are not Parthenocissus quinquefolia? What made you to believe that they were missidentified?

- I have hundreds pictures made there. To category Jardín Botánico I have put pictures which present views garden or somehow its specific parts. I do not think that photos only with plants and their parts are usefull in garden category. Especially that plant photos are not separated from photos which presents garden. Kenraiz (talk) 15:47, 25 December 2015 (UTC)
- I'm afraid I have to disagree. On the contrary it's very informatic and useful to see what certain plant species are grown in a certain Botanical Garden. (Personally, I visited several Botanical Gardens only because I read or heared that for me interesting plants (succulent plants and Euphorbiaceae) are grown there.) Therefore I established Category:Plants in Jardín Botánico Canario Viera y Clavijo and hope that you use it for all your images of plants taken there.

Zauważyłem, że pisałeś gdzieś na Wikipedii, że wybierasz się w tym roku do Armenii. Dość dobrze zwiedziłem ten bardzo ciekawy kraj w roku 2014, więc jakbyś miał jakieś pytania co do podróży czy kraju, to śmiało pytaj, chętnie odpowiem i pomogę:) Pod tym adresem zaś znajdziesz wrzucane przeze mnie fotki z Armenii (jeszcze nie wszystkie wrzuciłem, na razie tkwię przy fotkach z Górskiego Karabachu): Category:Images of Armenia by Hons084 (Halavar) --Halavar (talk) 12:36, 27 March 2016 (UTC)
- Mnie osobiście urzekły dwie prowincje, Jeghegnadzor i Sjunik, czyli południowo-wschodnie prowincje, ze wspaniałymi krajobrazami. W Azerbejdżanie (a więc też w Nachiczewanie) nie byłem, bo tam trzeba wizę, które bardzo trudno dostać. Azerowie strasznie utrudniają przez formalności wjazd do swojego kraju. Z kolei wjazd do Górskiego Karabachu jest bardzo prosty. Z miasta Goris odjeżdżają minibusy (marszrutki) do Stepanakertu. Na granicy, wysiadacie i dostajecie karteczkę wjazdu na teren Republiki Górskiego Karabachu, którą musisz zachować. Następnie w ciągu 3 dni musisz zgłosić się w Stepanakercie do tego budynku: File:2014 Stepanakert, Budynek Ministerstwa Spraw Zagranicznych Republiki Górskiego Karabachu (02).jpg czyli Ministerstwa Spraw Zagranicznych, wypełnić formularz wizowy, zapłacić 3000 AMD (za wizę do 10 dni) i poczekać kilkanaście minut. Możesz wybrać, czy chcesz mieć wklejoną wizę do paszportu (a więc dzięki temu nie wjedziesz już do Azerbejdżanu aż do końca ważności Twojego paszportu) czy też na osobnej kartce, którą po wyjeździe z Górskiego Karabachu możesz sobie zatrzymać na pamiątkę. Górski Karabach w zasadzie niczym nie różni się od Armenii. Jeśli lubisz przyrodę, to gorąco polecam jedyny znakowany w tym kraju pieszy szlak turystyczny Janapar Trail: http://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#route?type=relation&id=3668100&map=11!39.7215!46.8448 (znakowałem go na OSM). Aha, jeśli nie znasz języka rosyjskiego, to polecam się poduczyć przez wyjazdem podstawowych zwrotów, bo z angielskim tam słabo (zarówno w Górskim Karabachu jak i Armenii, no może poza stolicą). Ludzie są bardzo mili, przyjaźni i pomocni, spędziłem tam 3 tygodnie i ani razu nie było najmniejszych nieprzyjemności. Armenia jest bardzo tania, tańsza niż Gruzja, więc pieniędzy zbyt dużo nie wydacie. Wszystko jest bardzo tanie, noclegi, przejazdy, wstępy, jedzenie i picie a to duży plus. Mam spisane różne ceny, więc jak coś cię interesuje, to mogę podać co ile kosztowało. Gdy będziesz w prowincji Sjunik to polecam spróbować oghi, czyli mocnej wódki robionej z owoców morwy, a więc z tego: File:2014 Górski Karabach, Klasztor Gandzasar, Morwa biała (02).jpg File:2014 Górski Karabach, Klasztor Gandzasar, Morwa biała (01).jpg.

request non-commercial use of imagesEdit
Good morning Kenraiz:
I've seen https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Quercus_robur_fl_kz1.jpg pretty pictures. I wonder if I might use photography Flower Quercus robur for a small non-profit publication, of course the source of the proceeding would be mentioned.

Sedum spurium, Phedimus spurius or Sedum acre?Edit
You say that this is not Sedum acre, but Sedum spurium File:Saxifragales - Sedum spurium - 1.jpg; but it is now in the Phedimus spurius category. Why? Which is the accepted name, and which the synonym? What about this File:Sedum acre - Transylvania 1.jpg? The 2 pictures show the same sp. and even the same specimen. So the second picture also show Sedum spurium? Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 10:50, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

"Pinus wangii var. wilsonii" in the San Francisco Botanical GardenEdit
Hi Ken - did the SF BG give any info on this? The name is not validly published, and the specimen in the photo is Pinus parviflora, not P. wangii. My guess is that the SF BG was given the plant by a nursery, and that the nursery invented a "new" plant as a sales tactic (i.e., the BG is a victim of advertising fraud by the nursery). - MPF (talk) 11:10, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
File renaming reasonEdit
Hello, you’ve requested the renaming of several files showing Paronychia argentea exemplars. I followed your requests, but you should in future be careful, which renaming reason you select. This time it was number 3 "error in filename", and this was clearly wrong. Instead you should have chosen reason number 2 "meaningless or ambiguous filename" or (this time even better, but I noticed it too late) reason number 1, because you have uploaded the files. (Side remark: If you want to add some files to this series of "Paronychia argentea kz…", start with number 14: For whatever reason you had left out no. 11, so I shifted the last 3 files one down.) — Speravir – 00:29, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Iberis sempervirens 'Schneeflocke' or Iberis sempervirens 'Snowflake'Edit
Bitte entschuldige, dass ich auf Deutsch schreibe. Aber wenn ich mit meinen schlechten Englischkentnissen Google-Translator nutze, dann kann es zu Missverständnissen führen.
Meine Fragen an Dich: Du hast die Kategorie Category:Iberis sempervirens 'Schneeflocke' angelegt. Ein Benutzer hat viele Bilder mit dem Namen 'Snowball' hochgeladen (). Sind beide identisch ( und )? Welchen Namen würdest Du vorschlagen, den deutschen oder den englischen? Für den anderen wird dann natürlich eine Weiterleitung eingerichtet. Der Benutzer hat mehr als 34.000 Fotos von Pflanzen hochgeladen. Sehr, sehr viele Bilder von Pflanzensorten. Ich habe bisher die Sorten nur in vorhandene Kategorien einsortiert oder neue erstellt, wenn ich den Namen der Sorte in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur fand. Ansonsten habe ich die Fotos erst einmal in die Oberkategorien einsortiert (Art oder Gattung). Hast Du noch einen Hinweis für mich, wie man Pflanzensorten leichter finden kann? Vielen Dank im Voraus und mit freundlichen Grüßen, Hystrix (talk) 08:17, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
(Please excuse me for writing in German. But if I use Google Translator with my bad English skills, then it can lead to misunderstandings.
My questions to you: You have created the category Category:Iberis sempervirens 'Schneeflocke'. A user has uploaded many pictures with the name 'Snowball' (). Are both identical ( and )? What name would you suggest the German or the English? For the other, of course, a redirect is established. The user has uploaded more than 34,000 photos of plants. Very, very many pictures of plant varieties. I have so far sorted the varieties only into existing categories or created new ones when I found the name of the variety in the scientific literature. Otherwise, I have the photos only once sorted into the top categories (species or genus). Do you still have a hint for me how to find plant cultivations easier? Thanks in advance and sincerely, Hystrix (talk) 08:17, 10 August 2017 (UTC))
Ten gatunek był opisany jako Nothofagus × alpina. Na The Plant List są:
- Nothofagus alpina (Poepp. ex A. DC.) Oerst. – osobny gatunek
- Nothofagus × alpina (Poepp. ex A. DC.) Oerst. – synonim Nothofagus antarctica
Araucaria araucana subcategoriesEdit
Hi @Kenraiz, Salicyna: - you recently created a number of new subcategories in Category:Araucaria araucana. This has unfortunately resulted in serious loss of important information, whereby all natural occurrence specimens were in the root category, and all cultivated specimens were in Category:Araucaria araucana (cultivated) or subcategories thereof. Your recategorising has wrecked this important separation, making it impossible for users to know whether a photo is of wild specimens or not, without detailed examination of the image text. Please undo this mess so that the natural and the cultivated are separated again. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 00:24, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi Kenraiz - apologies for the miscategorisation of these 3! I'd assumed that all in the sequence File:Cakile maritima kz1.jpg - File:Cakile maritima kz9.jpg were part of one set all from the same location. It helps a lot if the file names include the location, then this wouldn't happen so easily ;-) MPF (talk) 00:53, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
Misidentified images of HippocrepisEdit
Hi Kenraiz, I found the three photographs above in Category:Hippocrepis multisiliquosa. However, these images cannot show Hippocrepis multisiliquosa, because the fruits of your species have their "holes" on the inner side of the arcs that the fruits form (the convex side), whereas real Hippocrepis multisiliquosa has the "holes" on the outer side (the concave side), see e.g. my photograph File:Hippocrepis multisiliquosa RF.jpg and also File:Horseshoe plant on Malta.jpg. I found this (in other words) both in the Flora Europaea and in a German language flora of Crete (Jahn/Schönfelder, Exkursionsflora für Kreta) and also got it explained to me by the botanist who told me the ID of my photograph in a German botany forum, https://forum.pflanzenbestimmung.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=36541 . So assuming that the species given at the site http://www.flora-of-cyprus.eu/ are complete, your plant must be Hippocrepis ciliata. The large papillae on the fruits also nicely match Hipocrepis ciliata, whereas Hippocrepis multisiliquosa should have small or no papillae on the fruits according to Flora Europaea. And this is something that might mean that the image of Hipocrepis multisiliquosa on http://www.flora-of-cyprus.eu/cdm_dataportal/taxon/98b7ba31-7e63-4483-b5ec-d73b65dd6352 might actually also show a different species. Anyway, your Hipocrepis was clearly misidentified and I am going to change this. If you do not disagree, we should also have the photographs renamed to avoid any confusion. With best regards, --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 12:34, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
