Your photos and your camerasEdit
Hi Foreign Species, you are photographing mainly with a Sony Ericsson W810i but there are two notable exceptions: File:Thomas Bernardy 2014.jpg was taken using a Nikon D5000 while File:Horst Förther AFN2013.jpg has been digitized using a Fuji Scanner SP-3000. Were these photographs taken by yourself? And how do you come to describe File:Thomas Bernardy 2014.jpg as being taken in 2014 when it appears to have been taken on 2 July 2009? Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 09:51, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
- File:Thomas Bernardy 2014.jpg I've been taking myself in December 2014 with a camera, that I borrowed from a friend, because no flashlight was allowed during the shows. Its date was not set properly.
- File:Horst Förther AFN2013.jpg I've been taking myself in June 2013 with my old Nikon AF 30 and digitized later. There are no legal issues; keep. Greeting, --Foreign Species (talk) 11:22, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
I have just come across a few images you have recently uploaded from Flickr. I would appreciate it if in the future, you used the Flickr2Commons tool. This tool allows images to be moved to Commons from Flickr without having to download the images to your own computer. It also brings in the largest resolution of the image, as well making sure to list the correct license and url, making it easy for the automated Flickr Review system. Also, it is fairly easy to categorize images with this tool. Elisfkc (talk) 22:47, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi, When tagging copyright violations, please inform the uploader. This is best done using the gagdet. See in your preferences to enable them, tab "Gadget", section "Maintenance tools" : "AjaxQuickDelete" and "Quick delete". These add links in the left column (or right column for Hebrew, Arabic, etc., language interface). Regards, Yann (talk) 19:40, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
