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

File:Asarum europaeum 'Asarabacca' (Aristolochiaceae) plant.jpgEdit
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!"

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 firstname.lastname@example.org so that I am sure that I get this right. Dean Snow —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:26, 03 December 2015 (UTC)

Guten Tag, Magnus Manske! Ich habe versucht dieses File für "ru.wikipedia.org." hochzuladen. Aber ich finde das nicht in commons. Habe ich etwas falsch gemacht? Danke für die Antwort! --DarDar (talk) 14:25, 6 August 2016 (UTC)
I lost all the material which I wrote in the article because of your bot. Are you think - it's normal, if the bot making changes to the article, which is contein "actively edited"? I agree, it was some problems with the license of the image, but why you can't customize deletion after editing? I lost articles material irreparably, because of the conflict between my edit and the action of your bot. Artem Ponomarenko (talk) 08:14, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
- Which article? Which bot? If it's Commons Delinker removing an image, that image was deleted by someone else on Commons, before the bot removed the broken image from the article. --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:17, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
- (talk page stalker) Searching this user's name on en:wiki, they only made two contributions, both were to remove material from articles. I don't see any article to which a +contribution was made and therefore cannot assist with the situation. Ellin Beltz (talk) 14:44, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Hi Magnus - your bot ListeriaBot ooperates this page; it is a very useful page, but as audio files are added to wikidata for more and more species, it will eventually become unmanageably large (very large galleries often cause computer crashes!). Not necessary yet, but do you think you could plan for a future division of it into two or more pages, please? Maybe non-passerines and passerines to start with? Thanks! - MPF (talk) 20:54, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Flickr 2 Commons BlacklistEdit
Sorry for not using BitBucket, but I don't know how to use it. I had a problem using the bot. I've found a couple of good galleries in Commons (one) and (two) but unfortunatelly, most of the filenames are inside the bot's blacklists, so it can't upload them. Can You fix this issue? tx!--Coentor (talk) 09:48, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
- Have you tried using "Prefix selected names" and writing in a short description that applies to all files? That will add what you write in to the beginning of all filenames. This probably isn't an issue with F2C but with MediaWiki:Titleblacklist. darkweasel94 10:09, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
