It helps me keeping track of all the requests. Beats spreading them over half a dozen talk pages ;-)

Parliament building of BeninEdit

Greetings,

I saw the picture mentionned in the subject on the Benin page as well as Porto-Novo page. And it is written that it is the siege of Benin Parliament. Please, note that this is wrong. The building name in French is Palais des Congrès which can be litteraly translated as Palace of Congress, but its purpose is just to host events like seminars, conference and meeting. Benin Parliament siege is the "Palais des Gouverneurs" in French. And it is located in Porto-Novo, not Cotonou. Since i'm not used to editing wikipedia articles, I think i might let you know so you can correct this.

Best regards

Gildas Jr.

Photo of inside of Cappella PalatinaEdit

Hello, Magnus.

Would it please be possible to have your permission to use your photo of the inside of the Cappella Palatina, specifically the one that shows the upper wall and part of the stalactite ceiling? I am writing a book on Norman Sicily and would really like to use this as the composition is so unusual. Thank you.

The Vernaccia picEdit

Hi, my name is Marco. I just would like to tell that the pic uploaded in the Vernaccia article it is not a Vernaccia from Sardinia, but (as stated on the label on the bottle) is a Vernaccia di San Gimignano. These two wines are quite different. I think the caption should be corrected. Best regards

image on wikipedia entry for margaret cavendishEdit

Hi Magnus,

The image you uploaded on the Margaret Cavendish page in Wikipedia does not represent her. According to her biography, Mad Madge, it is an image of Mary Lucas, her sister. Is it possible to remove it? It is misleading as is. This is the link to the image: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Margaret_Cavendish.jpg

Thanks!

please delete this picture, it's of me and i can't figure out how to delete itEdit

Mislabel leading to Embarrassing Situations "Patch Adams at Sarvodaya.jpg"Edit

Hello Magnus, My name is Derek Busby, and I am the assistant to Dr. Patch Adams. I am writing to you because the picture entitled "Patch Adams at Sarvodaya" has been incorrectly labeled. This picture is actually of Dr. Bowen White: http://bowenwhite.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/IMG_3774.jpg . While Drs. Adams and White are both amused by the mix-up, this picture has been used on several wikipedia pages (Spanish and Italian at least), and has been picked up by fans who came to believe this was a picture of Dr. Adams. We now have T-Shirts and a statue which feature the image of Dr. White, which have been presented to Dr. Adams--much to the confusion to all those involved. So, I would ask that you please edit this picture to reflect the reality that this is an image of Dr. Bowen White. Thank you. -Derek

Perhaps an overlooked issue?Edit

 

Contains an element labelled "Aluminum Cans"... I cannot find any reference to that as a battery type. Is this a copy/paste error?

maximale Länge (Zeichenzahl incl. Erweiterung) für Dateinamen auf Wikimedia CommonsEdit

Hallo Magnus Manske,

gern verwende ich lange beschreibende Dateinamen. Gestern hatte ich es das erste Mal wohl übertrieben und Schierigkeit beim Hochladen, so dass ich die Datei umbenennen (kürzen) lassen musste.

Leider finde ich nirgends eine Angabe, wie lang ein Dateinamen maximal sein darf.

Kannst Du mir mitteilen, wie groß die maximale Länge (Zeichenzahl incl. Erweiterung) für Dateinamen auf Wikimedia Commons sein darf?

Danke für Deine Mühe.

Viele Grüße

PS: Gibt es für "Wikimedia Commons" eine de:Wikipedia:Verbesserungsvorschläge/Feature-Requests vergleichbare Seite?

Simon Fraser of BalnainEdit

Hi Magnus I have written a book on the 1777 battles of Saratoga, which will be published by Oxford University Press next year. Simon Fraser of Balnain was mortally wounded in the second battle (about 3 PM on Oct. 7, 1777) at the moment that the battle and thus the entire American War of Independence reached its tipping point. It is, of course, important for us to include the image you uploaded, the only good one of Fraser. While I understand that credit is not required, I would like to include the credit line "Courtesy of Magnus Manske" or whatever alternative credit line you would prefer. Please contact me at drs17@psu.edu so that I am sure that I get this right. Dean Snow —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.58.104.51 (talk) 16:26, 03 December 2015 (UTC)

Zito photoEdit

Hi: I would like to use a photo I see your name associated with. I plan to use it in a book called Heads-Up Baseball 2.0. I think I'm free to do so (if I read the rules here correctly) -- please let me know if you would prefer I not use it.

CommonsDelinker have deleted a photoEdit

Hallo, Magnus! Wie gehts?

The bot have deleted https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:CRW_DZ_Menzelinsk.jpg I know the guy, who made this photo. But he is not in Wikimedia. How I should place the photo? What to do?

bad crop requestEdit

This crop request makes no sense to me . None of the people in the image is identified and person of d:Q28057796 has no connection to the photograph except that the photo was taken about the same time and in the same place where she was killed. So it is unclear what to crop. --Jarekt (talk) 11:42, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Muss das wirklich seinEdit

Hallo Magnus, ich überlege mir eigentlich recht genau, wie ich meine Bilder croppe. Ja, mir ist klar, dass ich rechtlich keine Handhabe gegen diese Form von Verstümmelung meiner Bilder habe, aber es stört mich trotzdem, vor allem wenn ich angeblich Urheber von sowas bin. Bitte wähle wenigsten nicht unscharfe Personen im Hintergrund für diese Anfragen.--Ailura (talk) 16:26, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Category:Crop for WikidataEdit

Anstatt hier hunderte Bilder - auch vollkommen ungeeignete - im Minutentakt in diese Category einzuordnen, mache das Croppen doch selbst. Was soll dieser Stumpfsinn? Gruß --Frze > talk 05:28, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Nochmal: Mach die Arbeit gefälligst selbst anstatt hier unsinnig Kategorien zu füllen! --Frze > talk 13:15, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

URVEdit

Hallo Magnus, Dir ist aber schon bewusst, dass das Abfotografieren von urheberrechtlich geschützten Fotos eine URV ist? Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass es legal ist, dieses Bild freizustellen. --Ailura (talk) 09:21, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

CroppingEdit

Hello! I saw this request: there are already cropped version of this photo (File:Francesca Dallapè e Stefano Bizzotto 00.jpg, File:Francesca Dallapè e Stefano Bizzotto 03.jpg, File:Francesca Dallapè e Stefano Bizzotto 04.jpg actually different photos, but it's the same result), isn't it better to use on of these for Wikidata? -- Syrio posso aiutare? 11:15, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Tag: Widar [1.4]Edit

Hi Magnus Manske;

I see you are adding {{Crop for Wikidata}} to many file pages with the edit summary Tag: Widar [1.4].[3] The Widar link is uninformative.[4] Would it be possible to link your edit summary to an explanatory page, and/or to provide an explanation at the top of your talk page, please? Users have questioned these edits, and I am not nearly as well-informed as I should like to be.[5] Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 17:12, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Übertrag von Disk FrzeEdit

Hallo Frze, ich glaube ich muss mal eingreifen: Hinter Magnus Manskes Änderungen steht jeweils Widar [1.4] --> das heißt dieser Edit wurde von einem automatischen Tool durchgeführt. Das was dich stört, macht Herr Manske gar nicht persönlich, sondern irgendeins seiner Tools. Seine letze Änderung ohne Widar ist vom 7. März 2017 – seitdem hat er sich vermutlich nicht mehr eingeloggt, und überhaupt nicht mitbekommen, was ihr von ihm wollt.--Tostman (talk) 10:40, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Na dann ist ja gut. Oder besser nicht gut:
Magnus Manske, bitte ändere den Bearbeitungskommentar und mach die Bearbeitung als die eines Bots kenntlich.
Wo ist die Whitelist dieses Bots, um weitere Sinnlosigkeiten nicht zuzulassen? Danke & Gruß --Frze > talk 10:57, 28 April 2017 (UTC) CC: User:Ailura
