Flickr reviewingEdit

Hello Mahanga, and thank you for your application to be a flickr reviewer. The application has been removed as successful, and you've been added to the list of reviewers. Congratulations! Please see Commons:Flickr images if you haven't done so already, and the backlogs at Category:Flickr images needing human review and Category:Flickr review needed. A helpful script for easy-tagging flickr images is at importScript('User:Patstuart/Flickrreview.js'); (which you can add to your monobook.js), and you can add {{user reviewer}} or {{user trusted}} to your user page if you wish. Thank you for your work on Commons! Pmlineditor  15:39, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Video categoriesEdit

It would make more sense to add the categories to the parent categories, instead of also to each of the individual applicable files within those categories. Cirt (talk) 08:25, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

For example, instead of adding Category:Films and television videos to the page File:2009 Razzies Worst Actress - Paris Hilton.ogv, you could instead add it to its parent category, Category:Video from 29th Golden Raspberry Awards. Would make things much easier. Can you please go ahead and make those fixes? Thank you, Cirt (talk) 08:28, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Got it. mahanga (talk) 15:25, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

At File:Heather Higginbottom Reacts to the Citizen's Briefing Book.ogv, again, that cat is already in the parent cat.... Cirt (talk) 01:56, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Got new pics up for Romo, Ogletree and Jenkins on their pages. Will work on the roster more this weekend. Great list so this could be addressed properly! 75.27.227.159 18:42, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Dallas Cowboys Vandalism - User: Jongb35Edit

I was able to revert all of this guys recent advertisement vandalism, however he created a page Dallas Cowboys Times that he is claiming is the official blog of the Dallas Cowboys. Can something be done about this please? It is nothing more than an advertisement. I put a vandalism warning on his user talk page "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Jongb35" and commented about the new site, but I have limited knowledge about bringing the hammer down on someone! Any help is appreciated. 71.158.218.17 12:48, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

File moverEdit

The functionality of the template {{rename}} has recently changed. You might need to clear your cache to see the changes. If successful you should then be able to use the new "Quick adding" link in the template to instruct CommonsDelinker to replace the old name with the new name in all wikis. Please use that every time you rename a file. If further questions arise, feel free to write on my talk page --DieBuche (talk) 10:00, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

use of a fileEdit

Hello,

Working on a small video about life under the sea, I would like to use your video "Sea_Nettle_("Chrysaora_Fuscescens"),_Monterey_Bay_Aquarium.ogv".

Would you allow me to do it?

Thanks for your answer,

Alice. ferrealice@yahoo.fr

Firstly, I did not record the video but merely uploaded it. As long as you give credit to the author ([1]) in your video, you may use the video. This applies to all videos of Commons. As long as you follow the licensing requirements, you don't have to ask permission. Mahanga (Talk) 21:29, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

File:Firefogg screencast.ogvEdit

Would you mind if I uploaded an updated version above your file? --McZusatz (talk) 14:04, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

No need to ask. Please do. But do we still want to push Firefogg? I think Miro is a better option since it converts to the better WebM format (and also to Ogg video) and doesn't require Firefox. I've been meaning of redoing the Commons:Video and Help:Converting video pages but I'm lacking time, unfortunately. It's currently far too technical. Mahanga (Talk) 15:30, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Found this good tutorial on YouTube. We can link to it. Mahanga (Talk) 16:00, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Miro does not support quality settings but highest quality is encouraged now that TMH can convert a video to low bandwidth files. You may noticed I already did some changes to both pages but now I am not sure how we can make things easier. (Keep in mind there are plenty of users who work with OSes other that Windows.) --McZusatz (talk) 16:55, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I see now, that's some great cleanup. It was badly needed after Wikimedia's recent update. Thank you for that. Just a note, Miro supports WebM HD (whatever that means). Miro is available on Win and Mac platforms, which comprise ~97% of Wikimedia's non-mobile traffic. We should focus on this group. For Linux, maybe there's Arista? I haven't used Linux is some time. We should figure out who we are targeting: novices who don't know anything about resolution, bitrate (typical smartphone user) in which case Miro is perfect. Then there's advanced users with more knowledge of the technical details (they can use Firefogg or some other app). Honestly, even though I know some technical details, I'll still be using Miro WebM HD since I don't want to mess with the conversion too much. Mahanga (Talk) 17:42, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

per User_talk:Mdale#Still_working_on_easier_video_uploading.3FEdit

Could you open a bug in bugzill for better visibility on firefogg auto conversion ? It may just be a matter of updating a configuration file. Mdale (talk) 18:22, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Video contestEdit

Hi Mahanga! I'm one of the organizers of the video contest Videos für Wikipedia-Artikel in the German Wikipedia which aims at including more videos into Wikipedia articles. The topic of our contest is "Digital Society". I discovered that your video of a Peterbilt application on Microsoft Surface is included in the German article called Tabletop Groupware. Therefor I want to invite you to participate with this video in the contest. The procedure is very easy: You would just have to add the template {{Video für Wikipedia-Artikel 2014}}. Obviously, if you have other video material consistent with the topic "Digital Society", you are wellcome to participate with it as well. --NSm (VWA) (talk)
