Parliament building of BeninEdit
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.

Photo of inside of Cappella PalatinaEdit
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
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
please delete this picture, it's of me and i can't figure out how to delete itEdit
someone uses an image of yours (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dragonfly_(8065197784).jpg) in this page http://libelula.com.pe/-Home-.html.

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
Dear Magnus Manske,
Are you the owner of this lovely photo and if not, can you direct me to the photographer. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Street_scene_from_Bundi,_Rajasthan.jpg
Hi Andrew, I used your awesome "JAWS" photo in a graphic. I ended up changing it quite a bit, but I still wanted to check with you before I publish it. Can I email you a copy? Thanks! Sarah email@example.com

The plant represented here - and on the associated file File:Asarum europaeum 'Asarabacca' (Aristolochiaceae) flower.jpg is not an asarum europaeum, but an erythronium dens-canis:
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?
Error in a picture of Beau de Rochas diagramEdit
The picture of the thermodynamic cycle here : http://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Cycle_de_Beau_de_Rochas contains an error. V1 and V2 on the bottom axis must be switched !
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.
PS: Gibt es für "Wikimedia Commons" eine de:Wikipedia:Verbesserungsvorschläge/Feature-Requests vergleichbare Seite?
- Hinweis: der Link "my toolserver tools": "https://toolserver.org/~magnus/" auf Deiner Diskussionsseite scheint veraltet zu sein: "We've moved!"
Bureau of Automotive RepairEdit
The picture of the Headquarters for the Bureau of Automotive Repair is incorrect because the Bureau moved in May 2012.
You have uploaded on Commons a picture of a toothbrush attributed to "Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte". Indeed, the handle is ornated with a crowned N, which is a personal emblem of the emperor Napoleon Ith. It is however dated 1795, but Napoleon was not Emperor until 1802. So there is a discrepancy here, the origin of which I cannot trace. Can you ? Can you correct it ? Thanks.
