Cats for petrographical filesEdit

Hi Kri, thanks for the revision of cats. Note categories with geoscientific significance, please. best regards --Lysippos (talk) 16:47, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi, what do you mean by note categories with geoscientific significance? —Kri (talk) 17:06, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
Sorry Kri. I mean the following edits by me:
18:43, 14. Aug. 2011 (Unterschied | Versionen) Category:Sandstone textures ‎ (cat removed (sand is not a stone))
18:36, 14. Aug. 2011 (Unterschied | Versionen) K File:Sandstone alveolization - Strasbourg.jpg ‎ (added Category:Sandstone using HotCat)
18:17, 14. Aug. 2011 (Unterschied | Versionen) K File:Karoo sandstone with bushmen paintings.jpg ‎ (added Category:Sandstone using HotCat)
Not all images are only an artistic picture. Some images of rocks have a special geoscientific message. Adding a category is not a problem. Sometimes the deletion of a category is unfavorable. That was only marginal. A lot of thanks. :-) Best regards --Lysippos (talk) 15:25, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for telling me. I shouldn't assume categories to be redundant so quickly in the future. —Kri (talk) 19:01, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Category:Barnsley fernEdit

Hi. You have added Category:Fractals by type to Category:Barnsley fern. but it is a subcategory of Category:Iterated function systems which is in category Category:Fractals by type. See history. Regards --Adam majewski (talk) 19:44, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Okay, it seems like you know better in this case. Go ahead and change it back if that is better. —Kri (talk) 22:42, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Ah, okay. I didn't really understand what you meant first (I guess I was tired or something), but now I have changed it back. —Kri (talk) 14:08, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
By the way, I went ahead and moved Category:Iterated function systems from Category:Barnsley fern and added it to Category:Computer generated fractal plants instead. —Kri (talk) 14:13, 26 July 2012 (UTC)


Hi. You have added category fractals to File:Quadratic Golden Mean Siegel Disc Average Velocity - Gray.png. It is in Siegel disc category which is a subcategory of JUlia sets and Fractals by type. Regards. --Adam majewski (talk) 13:40, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Okay, sorry for that. It's undone now. —Kri (talk) 14:06, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Error in file "Place T10 (Paris), pignon école.jpg"Edit

On my computer and on my web browser (Firefox 14.0.1), the file Place T10 (Paris), pignon école.jpg "cannot be displayed because it contains errors". Please don't remove the template {{Broken file}} I put in it just because it can be displayed on your computer. It doesn't work on my computer so there is clearly something wrong with it or something that prevents it from working properly. It doesn't matter if it is the file that causes the error or if it is my system that is incompatible with it; the two are equally bad and people who want to use the image on any Wikimedia site should be aware of that fact that not all web browsers can display it. I have restored the template again and please let it be there. —Kri (talk) 17:48, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

The problem is obviously on your computer and you should fix it, not blame a file which by the way is correctly displayed by Firefox 14.0.1. --Coyau (talk) 22:02, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
It is obviously on my computer? Well can you tell me what the problem is then maybe I can fix it. Look, all I'm saying is that the file can't be displayed in every web browser and on every computer (which is not good), I'm not blaming the picture. Firefox on my computer says that the file contains errors, which users should be aware of. I don't know whether Firefox's error message is correct or not, but perhaps someone who sees this template instance knows why this error occurs and can fix it. —Kri (talk) 22:44, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
I changed back my edit in the picture. See the edit summary. —Kri (talk) 11:49, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Category:Reflections of the Sun in still waterEdit

Hi, you added the category Category:Reflections of the Sun in still water to File:Sunrise at al-Masjid al-Nabawi.jpg, but that's not still water, so I removed the category, and the category is empty right now, and it should be deleted unless you find an image to add to it. --Z 11:54, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

So the water is moving? —Kri (talk) 17:07, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Now I see what you mean. That's not water at all; it's polished stone! :P It really looked like water, though. —Kri (talk) 07:21, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
LoL so far everyone that I've showed the photo to thought that's water. --Z 14:56, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
I can imagine! :) It's a really nice image by the way. —Kri (talk) 15:04, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Sad that didn't have a better camera. --Z 11:34, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
