Thanks, but it is easy. It is just one or two clicks on the automatic function in the software AcdSee . The software is not really expansive but the automatic functions are brilliant. --Marku1988 21:17, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello just here making certain that the welcome template was here alsoEdit

I will be honest, I only used the help template to remember the badname template because I occasionally get a little discombobulated with the naming of my uploads. A link to the deletion guidelines is in there!! Yay!

I personally had much more luck though just putting the delete template on it and following those instructions and haven't actually read these guidelines in a long while. -- carol (talk) 23:47, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Baker Electric BuildingEdit

Thanks for uploading so many Cleveland images. The building on Euclid is officially the Baker Motor Vehicle Company Building in the NRHP, but it is more commonly called the Baker Electric Building. Here's a recent Plain Dealer article about its restoration. I'm not sure where the Baker factory was located, but given the large footprint of auto factories and the high values of Euclid Avenue land at the turn of the century, it seems reasonable to assume that the factory wasn't on Euclid. - EurekaLott (talk) 04:32, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Re:File:Winnibigoshish Lake Dam.jpgEdit

Its simple, follow the LOC templates link http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/hhh.mn0389 and you will come to the archival description page of this survey. The survay consists of 11 b&w photographs, 10 data pages and 1 photo caption card, you see the survey number somewhere on the page (HAER MN-65) and the stable link with the digital ID hhh.nm0389. You can click the Item on the Top 11 b&w photographs because they are already digitalized. Klick it and you will see the 11 photographs. Your photo is nr. 4, survey id MN-65-4, thats important to find the image in the caption card. Click the photo. You have two download options at the bottom, select the High res TIFF image. Its 19 MB large, so the download will take some time. Open the file with a software i dont even have photoshop so i use ms office picture manager. Edit the TIFF file like you want, maybe crop the borders, and export it to jpg. You can get the informations about date and author from the photo caption card. --Martin H.

File:180px-Kujau wiki.jpgEdit

Hi Nyttend, please do not remove a {{Delete}} template inserted by someone else as you did here. This has to be done by the admin who processes the associated deletion request. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 12:01, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Permission templates questionEdit

Earlier today, you dealt with the File:Waterfall in the War Memorial Park.jpg, changing the "OTRS pending" to the standard template with the OTRS ticket number. I was confused about one thing, however: you replaced the {{Attribution}} with the OTRS ticket number template — don't we need to have some sort of copyright tag as well as the OTRS ticket number template? I've restored the permission template and moved the OTRS number elsewhere in the image description; if you get a chance, please look at the page and fix it if I've done something wrong. Nyttend (talk) 14:35, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

You've left it exactly how I should have done; my script for adding OTRS templates failed. Thanks. Stifle (talk) 15:40, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

1531 Stout StreetEdit

It was fun to go down and take this picture. Thanks as always for your great edits to this and others. It was a difficult building to photograph; the street is narrow. Here is the front view, which I though was not as good as the shot I eventuall chose. Denverjeffrey (talk) 12:24, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

File:Puye Ruins.jpgEdit

It was a nice photograph and agree but if the author does end up replying and agrees to have it under a free license forward it to OTRS and contact me and I'll be happy to restore the photograph. Bidgee (talk) 13:03, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

TalkbackEdit

Photo requests - NRHP sites in Valencia CountyEdit

I will take some photos on my next trip (I live in southern New Mexico, but I travel through this area a few times a year). I got a photo of the Harvey House Museum on this trip, which I have uploaded. File:Harvey House Museum Belen New Mexico.jpg (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs) --AllenS (talk) 14:43, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

OK, I will collect them statewide. Leave a note on my talk page is there is anything you think is especially needed. --AllenS (talk) 03:46, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Lake County Courthous photoEdit

Hello Nyttend, I have changed the license on my Flickr photo page of the Lake County Courthouse. I hope I used the correct license. If not please let me know. I am sorry for all the confusion regarding this photo. Thank you. --Pdepalma (talk) 13:45, 26 July 2009 (UTC)


RE: Nikbot not giving me a messageEdit

You're right. I'm back from holiday and I've just seen that's a bug on wikipedia.py that make the bot crash just before it can notify the problem to the user. However, I've just fixed it :-) Thank you, --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 10:56, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Image license question (Denver)Edit

I think the license that was there was the one I originally gave to the picture. Definitely please do not delete it from Wikicommons. I just changed the license to attribution only. That solves the problem, no? Thanks, Denverjeffrey (talk) 21:55, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for my confusion on this picture's license. I made a change just now -- is it the one you seek? My intent is to give it a license that allows it to remain on Wikicommons, but I guess I am confusing either the picture or the license. Also, thanks for your comments on my Speer Boulevard photo!Denverjeffrey (talk) 11:12, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

User talk:Abigor#Talk page speedy deletion?Edit

I deleted the talk page, as you requested; no need for further bureaucracy. –Tryphon 14:03, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

CommentEdit

I'm sorry for the error here: File:Miami County Courthouse clock and Justice.jpg

The situation is as MGA explained. When one sees the flickr license, I thought it might be 'safer' to pass it as I saw it: 'cc by 2.0' in this case. I usually check the license and the resolution. My apologies, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:26, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

File:Mounds.jpgEdit

I'm not quite sure, but as far as remember 7 years later the picture was taken at the Bynum Mounds, near milepost 232 on the Natchez Trace Parkway. --Jan Kronsell (talk) 10:20, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Category:Media with erroneous locationsEdit

Nyttend, I just fixed your files to be compatible with the {{Location}} template you are using, and today they are back in Category:Media with erroneous locations with clear error messages showing on the file page. You can keep {{Location}} template on top (sorry for moving it), but please leave the parameters inside the template intact. --Jarekt (talk) 20:03, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Your recent edits on several of my imagesEdit

Thanks for the category cleanup, but please don't mess with how other people choose to state their re-use permissions. This has been discussed several times on the Village Pump. Unless someone actually gives the wrong permission info - e.g. misattributes the work, claims a CC license on something that is actually PD, etc. - you (and I, and anyone but the uploader) should leave alone their one statements about the image (adding is fine, but removing is another thing). I choose on my images always to be explicit, not implicit, about myself as a source, and that I, as the photographer, am granting rights. I do this as a precaution, because I've found that quite a few of my images get used outside of Wikimedia Foundation projects, and that "own work" has a tendency to turn into a credit to the Commons or to Wikipedia instead of to the actual photographer.

Again, sincerely, thanks for the category cleanup, but please don't "fix" what is not broken. - Jmabel ! talk 03:59, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

concerns: Licence for File:Cityhall-Little Rock 131.jpgEdit

Hello, you mentioned that this foto has no correct licence. Please read, what I wrote on the File:Cityhall-Little Rock 131.jpg , that the fotographer W.Beckers gave all rights to me. He is my brother in law!! There are dozens of other fotos of my br.i.l. Please remove the Licencedeletion plague. Greets. --Peng (talk) 15:11, 15 December 2009 (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.

Karthaus Truss BridgeEdit

I just uploaded File:Karthaus Truss Bridge Steelwork.jpg it's over the West Branch Susquehanna River between Centre and Clearfield Counties. I am not sure if it's part of the bridge project that you've been working on or not. Either way it's uploaded and available. Dincher (talk) 23:40, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

RollbackerEdit

With the high level of trust that you have demonstrated as a long-term administrator on the English Wikipedia, I have given you the rollbacker permission here on Commons. I am certain you would use it wisely. Royalbroil 14:33, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Please use it to roll back your tagging of all those files that already have an active deletion request. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 07:03, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
Easier to keep discussion here. As I pointed out in several of the DRs: the license was recently changed. If the problem is that the DR's were not logged, you can log them. And they should be bundled in a mass DR. But tagging bypasses the discussion. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 07:12, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

copyright on centerpoint imageEdit

What do I need to do I am the webmaster from centerpointminsities. It is our image for our church. I uploaded for a new wiki page for the church

Thanks


I give my page on wiki got killed as not relevant, until I get more references my Church and its activity I am not going to try again. You can delete my pic I will try again when I am ready to attempt a new wiki page

Sorry for the trouble

NewarkEdit

I was only in Newark for a day, mostly by happenstance, on the way from Nashville to Allentown. Did research afterwards on it. The Great Circle Earthworks, which I took photos of, is in a public park, anyone can get in. Another part is in a country club, I don't know how accessible is is. There's a third bit, but don't know where it is. Newark is a nice town, visit Dawes Arboretum and the nearby Velvet Ice Cream Company in Utica if you ever get there. --Ebyabe (talk) 05:56, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

File:First Presbyterian Church, Napoleon 1.jpgEdit

I've wondered about removing duplicated descriptions in files that I've modified. I've never done it, probably because, like many things on Wikipedia, there are no clear guidelines. So I appreciate your educating me that it's not only OK, but good. . . . . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talkcontribs) 12:53, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

AdviceEdit

Hi! Regarding this:

Ohio!Edit

Thanks for the note. As I noted in reply on my talk page, as you've been working on Ohio topics on Wikimedia, if you haven't checked out the Flickr photos of Dok1 / Don O'Brien I'd suggest you do so. I've copied a few of his pix here, but I bet people who know more about that part of the country than I could find good use for more. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 21:48, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

ColorsEdit

Hi, I've read about your little problem in Commons:Help_desk. If you are using w:Firefox maybe the Addon colorZilla (screenshot there) could be a help for you. It shows you the RGB code (see also RGB color model) of any color on a webpage/image you pick using your mouse. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 14:48, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

File:Sackville House site in Washington.jpgEdit

DeletionEdit

When you get a chance, could you have a look at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Kent Roosevelt New.jpg and comment if you can? I'm not sure why it's taken so long for this to get deleted. I personally think it should be speedily deleted as it serves no purpose here at all. --JonRidinger (talk) 05:22, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Never mind...I put a speedy tag on it as it is out of the project scope. No need to discuss something so obvious. --JonRidinger (talk) 05:32, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Bulgarian Copyright and Related Rights Law.Edit

Hi!

Best wishes, Bulgarian Herald (talk) 23:59, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

no-source-tag removalEdit

Hi Nyttend,
I have seen that you removed no-source-tags from a lot of files only because there was an own-tag. As you are not new on Commons, you might know that even copyvio-uploaders usually tag their uploads as "own". When an admin or another experienced user tags an allegedly own-sourced image with no-source, that simply means (with less harsh words), we don't believe you or we aren't sure, whether this is really your own work. In some instances the uploader reacts and either provides evicence or concedes that it was actually not his own work. In my impression, that strategy is more productive than directly requesting such files for deletion. Therefore, you should be more cautious in removing such tags without any further evidence. --Túrelio (talk) 13:56, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

I know that they do, but I also know that the policy says an {{Own}} claim is sufficient. If one disbelieves the claim, one can file a deletion request. Nyttend (talk) 14:00, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
You may also comment here. --Túrelio (talk) 14:35, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

GFDL / CCEdit

Please stop changing the license of the red wine glass image. I uploaded it years ago using the GFDL license, but changed it later to CC-BY-SA 2.5 because images licensed this way are much easier to use for third parties. Nobody looses something, because its less restricted than before. -- regards, aka 13:18, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

There appears to be consensus, at Commons_talk:Licensing#User_keeps_removing_GFDL_tag, that Aka may change the licensing to whatever he/she wants as long as it remains suitable for Commons purposes. Yes, licenses are un-revokable -- you can't go up to a re-user who obtained the image while it was licensed GFDL and demand they stop using it that way -- but Commons can certainly change the license under which we distribute the file as long as the copyright holder agrees.

Removing parent categoriesEdit

Hello, I see you have an interest in HABS photos and the NRHP (and that hidden category in all the image pages). Why do you like to work with these photos and categories? I'm interested in places around the neighborhood, and I appreciate the details in the photographs as an architect.

Can I ask about your reason for taking Category:Historic American Buildings Survey in West Virginia out of Category:Beverly?

Your objection was that "the house itself isn't related to HABS". But the house, at one time, was surveyed. Much like the houses in the Category:National Register of Historic Places. Actually, this parent category has the same function as Category:National Register of Historic Places in West Virginia (where Beverly appears): to "make it easier to move through the category tree" of HABS by state as per COM:C.

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.

Remove parent categoryEdit

Howdy, I'd be more than willing to remove the redundancies. Just didn't want to spoil anyone's fun by removing their favorite image that appears on the "tens" (Category:1660s houses in the United States, etc.) Anything earlier than 1660 will stay in the tens until there's enough entries for separate years. P.S. I appreciate your tactful communications which make it easier to get along here. Some of my other critiquers are rather blunt with their edit summary.

Dogears (talk) 04:08, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

So what's the "policy" on: There's such a thing as alphabetical order.

The list of categories serves the user best to be ordered from specific to general, with the credit for the photographers last. Otherwise, there's no order to the categories: national, then local, then national, who's this guy? (Jet Lowe), local, national ... Dogears (talk) 05:17, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Best to follow the categorizer's preferences, so be it. Dogears (talk) 19:59, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Re: Cane River Creole National Historical Park — Simple google search found the website, then click the "maps" tab. Google maps has an add-on that lets you drop a coordinate onto the map (right click menu). Then cut and paste the coordinate into the template and then format. Dogears (talk) 01:32, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

  • The coords are in the middle of a field for this one, hence the {{Object_location}} template was used. With google Street View, the coordinates on the street can be pinpointed, and the (Camera) {{Location}} template can be used (when not in the middle of a field).

Admin?Edit

While we haven't always agreed on every little thing, you've given me a lot of help on WP:EN in the past. I see you asking for Admin help from time to time here. If you'd be willing to do an RfA, I'd be delighted to sponsor you. We certainly need all the help we can get.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 20:34, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks very much for the offer! Unfortunately, I must decline — I have enough to do at en:wp, and I begin grad school in a week, so I expect soon to have much less time. Nyttend (talk) 22:02, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
The thought occurs to me — I doubt that I would risk being desysopped per the inactivity portion of the de-adminship policy, but I'm sure that I'd perform far fewer admin actions than I do at en:wp. I'd probably only use them when I found them necessary for what I wanted to do, rather than going places such as COM:AN and looking for jobs that needed to be fulfilled. If you think that such a low level of activity would be welcomed in a request for administratorship, feel free to nominate me; I'm not going to make a Shermanesque statement. Nyttend (talk) 22:21, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
Fair enough, I won't twist your arm. I was one of those who proposed raising the bar for being a sysop to ten edits a month, so I would be inconsistent if I didn't agree that we don't need inactive ones. On the other hand, that proposal failed, so the bar remains at five edits in six months and your various work here would have generated far more than that number of Admin edits without having to look for more.
So, what are you studying?     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 10:33, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Mass deletion requestEdit

Could you use a mass DR when you go to town on a particular subject? It saves both the nom and the closing admin several pageloads per file. Thanks      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 16:02, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

As at Miral Faisal, when you nominate a lot of images on the same subject, with the same rationale, a Mass DR saves you time because you only have to make one entry in the log and create one DR subpage (I know that a script can do the work, but you still have to watch all the pages load). It saves the closing Admin time because he or she has to click only once, to keep or delete the image, omitting the second time to close the DR. See, for example: Commons:Deletion requests/Images of User:M1keRTM.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 17:05, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Question about featured picturesEdit

Hello, I was on a trip to Israel in the last days, so I couldn't answer to your question. There is a page on the english wikipedia, where you perhaps get hints how to improve your photographs: Photography_workshop. Before presenting your pictures at Faetured Picture Candidates you should go to Quality images candidates where you can get also valuable hints. For File:Monroe County Courthouse in Bloomington, dome interior from floor.jpg: nice composition but there ist too much noise and overexposed parts. At File:Downtown Bedford, Indiana.jpg perspective shouls be corrected to avoid converging lines. A very useful software to do this is the free shiftn (also available in english). So good luck :-) --Berthold Werner (talk) 08:49, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Nisqually quakeEdit

I don't think you made a good move adding Category:Seattle, Washington in the 2000s to Category:2001 Nisqually earthquake and removing if from individual photos. The quake was centered near Olympia, Washington, a good 80 km from Seattle. While its effects in Seattle were dramatic, so were its effects in many places, some of them even on the other side of the epicenter and hence not within 100km of Seattle. I think the Category:Seattle, Washington in the 2000s category should only be on photos taken in Seattle. - Jmabel ! talk 03:29, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. I encountered the categories at the photo you uploaded of the damage at the Cadillac Hotel, which was in both categories; this made me think that it was a Seattle earthquake, since I'd never before heard of it. Nyttend (talk) 11:12, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
Seattle was certainly affected, but so were many other places in Washington, hence it shouldn't be subordinate to the one city. - Jmabel ! talk 01:33, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

new templates for US-StatesEdit

Hi Nyttend,

I have simplified the use of the templates again, actually for Pennsylvania, see for ex.: Category:Built in Pennsylvania in 1869 (Template:PennsylvaniaArc) and Category:1860s architecture in Pennsylvania (Template:PennsylvaniaArcDecade). You see the US-States navigation templates are included now in the "built in" templates and you have much less work with single pages. ---anro (talk) 20:30, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

File:Pinal County Courthouse.jpg -- original uploader?Edit

I tracked the origin of this photo, and found that I added it to the Pinal County article back in March 2008, and uploaded the photo shortly before.

For whatever reason, when it got moved to Commons, it was deleted in favor of the copy you uploaded in April 2009.

This is true Wikitrivia, but I couldn't figure out why you reverted my credit line, so spent a few minutes tracking it down, instead of doing unwelcome chores...

House?Edit

Hmm. I generally agree with your edits, but I wonder about this one. It was a pair of houses moved from the International District to Ballard; in Ballard, they are used as offices, not houses.

File:The Assam News.jpgEdit

Hey Nyttend, this file was added recently to illustrate The Assam News. I find it odd, though, that the tag says "own work" and the image itself says ©The Assam News. Shouldn't this be accompanied by a ticket (OTRS ticket, is that it?) that says that permission has been granted by The Assam News? Thanks, Drmies (talk) 15:31, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Permission vs. no sourceEdit

Hi. You declined three of my "no source" tags at English Wikipedia. Unfortunately, when dealing with thousands of images, I make mistakes, and what I meant to click was "no permission" (since corrected). However, you then came to commons and declined the "no permission" as "Permission was provided at en:wp" [1] [2] [3]. However, I really don't see anything to indicate there is any permission on the page. Could you correct this or explain the decline? Thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) 07:24, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

The whole issue is very simple: you tagged the images for lack of a source and then lack of permission when they're sourced to the uploader. If you read the NPD template, you'll see that it depends on the image being sourced to someone other than the uploader. If we have an {{Own}} source statement for an image, it may not be deleted by NPD. Moreover, when your deletion was declined, you tagged them as having been marked for lack of permission several days before you actually tagged them — kindly observe that images are required to be tagged for lack of permission for several days before they may be deleted for that reason. I don't care what kind of mistake you make: don't put a false date on a tag so that it can be deleted sooner. Nyttend (talk) 12:00, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

I don't see that wording in the NPD template at all: template:no permission since. In fact the template specifically says "This also applies if you are the author yourself." If you disagree, you might also want to have a talk with w:User:Diannaa, who deleted more than just those three images. She also deleted several other uploads by the same author. Also, I don't have a problem with constructive criticism, but I don't appreciate being tersely commanded to do something; it's not polite. I would appreciate though if you could phrase your requests to me in a kind manner. Thanks. Magog the Ogre (talk) 23:58, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Since it also applies if the uploader is the author, you have my permission to go ahead and tag all of my own-work images for deletion, since I've never provided OTRS permission for any of them. Moreover, I give constructive criticism when people are doing things in good faith that could be improved. When someone intentionally falsifies information in order to circumvent policy, I am under no illusion that he is acting in good faith. Nyttend (talk) 00:16, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

I don't see how that helps us to answer the question in any form. I could continue, but, as you've become combative and show no desire to help, I'm afraid I'll have to ask some others in the community. the relevant thread will be at COM:AN. I may of course be proven wrong, but your assumption of bad faith not only is wrong-headed, it's against community rules. Magog the Ogre (talk) 00:37, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Southcoastpl-pano1.jpgEdit

Hi, I noticed that the category Category:1980s architecture in California was recently removed for the image Southcoastpl-pano1.jpg. The building photographed (Sears at South Coast Plaza) was built in 1966 however in 1985 the exterior went through a complete remodel, voiding any sign of the 1960s from most of the department store. As a result, the outside of the store is now prominently clad in pink faux stone-surface tiles and white stucco, all motifs of 1980s architecture and design. Therefore I think that it is appropriate to keep the category in order to reflect this. Please speak up if you suggest otherwise. Thanks! --Amineshaker (talk) 04:02, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Greetings again! Thank you for the quick response. I definitely understand your point and it makes sense. Since the Category:1980s Architecture in California is set up to contain the sub-categories Category:Built in California in 198x, then I can see why it should only contain photographs of buildings built during that decade. However I invite you to consider this: the reason for my concern is based on what is implied, linguistically, with the category name Category:1980s Architecture in California. Without considering what sub-categories are contained here, one would be lead to believe that the aforementioned category is dedicated to any structure that reflects architectural design, style, motifs, etc. from the 1980's. On the other hand, Category:Built in California in 198x linguistically implies specifically that a structure was built between 1980-1989, regardless of if the structure contains any defining architectural style or not (i.e.: a tool shed built in 1982; a park restroom built in 1988, etc.). Based on these definitions, I think the two categories in question do not necessarily have to be mutually inclusive, since one is referring to the architecture while the other is referring to the year a structure was built.
I would imagine many years in the future that an enthusiast of architecture would look at the category titled Category:1980s Architecture in California and expect to see images of not just structures built in that decade, but also of any structure which reflects architectural elements designed in the 1980s (regardless of when the actual structure was built). I'm eager to hear your thoughts and further suggestions. Finally thank you for your tireless work in going through the countless number of images on Wikimedia and correcting the category designation--I know that its a tedious task but certainly one that will be appreciated for future users of this site!

Missvain Indianapolis categoriesEdit

I noticed you were reverting categorizations made by User:Missvain. I can't figure out what is wrong with most of them, particularly if they end up having more than an image or two. A could see a few of them being too specific (Category:1970 in Indianapolis), but I think that user is from the area and she's drilling down a lot of Indianapolis stuff, so it could be that several of the categories she's adding end up populated. (For example, Category:High schools in Indianapolis was removed from File:Arsenal Technical High School.jpg, yet that category already has 5 images, and is almost certainly fillable with media lurking around Commons.) Is she being overly aggressive somewhere and people are needing to just mass-revert her and figure it out later? --Closeapple (talk) 00:01, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

File:YumaTrestle1.jpg & FlickrLickrEdit

Your review of this image is completely unacceptable. You say "its never been reviewed." That's just nonsense! This image was uploaded and its flickr license reviewed and verified by the FlickrLickr bot on 26 July 2007 here which could Only upload flickr images which were freely licensed as "cc by generic" (ie. cc by 2.0) as this one was. You don't know what FlickrLickr was? If you don't trust me, ask another Admin who knows about bots. FlickrLickr was one of the earlier bots which viewed the licenses of images at upload at Commons--much like Magnus Manske does today--from 2005 until 2009 when it stopped being used and was replaced by the Flickr Upload bot. I can't believe you could have got an image deleted because of what you didn't know; so, I'm sending you a notice as a trusted user now! Its important.

Once an image is uploaded by the FlickrLickr, Magnus Manske bot, Flickr Upload bot or passes flickrreview, it is considered passed for life and non-revocable...unless there are FOP or copy vio problems. Please remember this the next time you see that an image was uploaded by FlickrLickr. Also, please read the message at the top of this Category for FlickrLickr images...because I did NOT type it. Someone else did. I hope this clear things up. Some people may mark Flickrlickr images later but that's irrelevant because they were free at upload and that's what counts. You can't delete them just because a flickr copyright owner changes the license 2 or 3 years after they were uploaded onto Commons. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:50, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

  •   Comment: I'm sorry if I was angry. It was midnight in BC, Canada, and I was tired. All I'm saying is that in 2011, FlickrLickr images don't need to be reviewed because the FlickrLickr bot confirmed the image's flickr license was 'cc by 2.0' at upload. So, its non-revocable. I thought maybe you didn't know about FlickrLickr since it hasn't been used to upload images since August 2009. My sincere apologies. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 18:55, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Deleting Brian ReichleEdit

Perhaps he's not the most relevant man in the world but I believe his pursuits are relevant enough for the existence of a Wikipedia page for him.

He is a lightning rod for many established and not so established comedians coming up and adapting the new technologies that are becoming available in our increasingly connected world.

If the Brian Reichle article itself was poorly edited/sourced/structured that can be fixed.

He's an Ohioan that deserves his own article. Please, I believe it would be helpful if you undeleted him.

NRHP templateEdit

Are you sure about the rationale behind this removal? Because you are reverting some of the literaly thousands of such edits I made over the last several weeks after this discussion on the Village Pump. It seems to me that my edits are in accord with what was said there. Could you please either bring this back to the Village Pump or discuss it with User:Multichill before reversing more such edits? I don't want to waste hours of my time or yours. - Jmabel ! talk 16:43, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

copied from User talk:Jmabel, let's try to keep the conversation on one page.

I don't understand what you mean. If I understand the VP section correctly, you believed that the categories should be tagged with the template, not the images; since the categories are tagged, the images shouldn't be. Am I missing something? Nyttend (talk) 21:35, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Well, that was what I originally suggested, but User:Multichill, who created the template disagreed and wanted it on all images (indeed, he had originally placed it on 8 or so of my images, not on any of my categories). The discussion linked from the VP seems to go his way on this, so I was going along. Do note that (somewhat to my surprise) this does seem to be the common practice for other subcats of Category:Cultural heritage monuments with known IDs.
Again, I could go either way on this, but I think you & Multichill should try to reach a consensus, rather than my doing what he said to do and you reverting my edits. I will lay off of further related edits until a consensus emerges. - Jmabel ! talk 01:21, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, thanks for the clarification; I indeed misread it. I agree with "what I originally suggested", since one of the main points of having category trees is to prevent some categories from becoming too full; e.g., {{CatDiffuse}}. However, I don't feel like putting much effort into convincing people that they need to change, so I'll just not remove these templates in the future. Nyttend (talk) 03:54, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
As far as I can tell, none of this puts anything in a new category, it's just a matter of what gets a template. I believe the idea is eventually to hook to some DB that can use the reference numbers, so that anyone encountering a category or image with this template can click through to a page based on the database entry. - Jmabel ! talk 04:30, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Imho individual images should be tagged and categories can be tagged. All subcategories of Category:Cultural heritage monuments with known IDs are flat (big) tracker categories. We use this system in other countries to assist in categorization, to add location templates, etc. This is now also possible for the US. Multichill (talk) 16:42, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

KetteringEdit

What does "People from <fooville>" mean?

Charles Kettering was born in Loudonville in central Ohio. As a rich man he later built a large mansion in South West Ohio, near his business interests in Dayton, a location that later chose to rename itself after him as Kettering.

He was from Loudonville. He lived in Kettering. When we have a category for Category:Residents of Kettering, Ohio, we can add him to that. He's only from one place though, and that place is Loudonville, not Kettering.

Similarly Brooklyn Decker, another member of Category:People from Kettering, Ohio. Born in Kettering, she now lives in NC. Commons listed her as "from" three places at once. Andy Dingley (talk) 19:29, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Re: Another request for helpEdit

One of the 3 images was already geo-tagged (though some 100 m off; I've corrected it now); another showed essentially the same scene; and for the third, I can't exactly figure the point of view, but I believe I've identified the building (another church!) as shown on Google Maps sat view. Have adjusted captions accordingly. Not sure about the 2 trees near the church, but maybe they have been cut since I've taken the picture... -- Vmenkov (talk) 03:29, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

NRHP taggingEdit

You might be happy to see that one of my bots is filling up Category:National Register of Historic Places with known IDs. The tagging is based on the usage of the images in lists at the English Wikipedia. This will result in about 34.000 images in this category (based on these statistics).

New nomination on File:Abetomb03 (December 2005).jpgEdit

There is a new deletion nomination at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Abetomb03 (December 2005).jpg. We were the participants in the original 2010 nomination. I'm not sure if it's important, but you were the original nominator, so there it is. --Closeapple (talk) 02:36, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Re: NR and HD categoriesEdit

Really? Then can you sort out the ones that are, and the ones that aren't? I've considered something similar for Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, because some other user is loading up images from parts of Texas and adding bad categories, and sometimes none at all. However, with the distinction of Historic districts that aren't on NRHP, you left me with something to keep in mind. ----DanTD (talk) 16:27, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

One more church photoEdit

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.

House museumEdit

http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Freeport_Historical_Museum&curid=18785735&diff=85977943&oldid=73867686: although this is a museum in a former house, I wouldn't particularly call it a "house museum". No effort has been made to restore any of the rooms of the house or to reflect what it looked like in a past time; they simply used it as a convenient and appropriately historic building in which to place the museum, which has artifacts of a pretty diverse nature. Is there something I'm missing about the meaning of this category, or should this be reverted? - Jmabel ! talk 21:15, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

NoteEdit

Considering how the Xanderliptak case was (mis-)handled, I don't think it's right to tell an editor he'll be committing a federal crime if he fraudulently uses DCMA. However, it would be totally fair to tell the editor that if he goes ahead with it, he will necessarily be indef'd, for violations of the wikimedia rules. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 13:19, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Given your response, then tell me why Xanderliptak wasn't taken to court and charged with perjury? His pretext for getting his images deleted was a blatant lie. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 21:56, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Agreed, there was nothing special about Xander's illustrations, and as I recall the feud erupted because his watermarks were removed, which is pretty much analogous to the current situation. But are you aware of what specific tactic Xander used to get his stuff deleted? I am, but I don't want to say it out loud here. And it's other than the obvious fact that wikimedia just didn't want to bother with that clown anymore. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 05:26, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

NR-listedEdit

Hey, I don't understand your edit to File:George Boxley Cabin, southern and western sides.jpg. What is NR-listed, and why does it mean that we should link to a Wikipedia article that doesn't exist? (specifically, why does it being on the National Register mean that we link to non-existing articles; I'm not as familiar with Commons policies as I am with enwp's, I'll admit, but your edit makes no sense to me) EVula // talk // // 00:50, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Town Hall vs City HallEdit

I'm trying to understand your reasoning between Town Hall vs City Hall. You mentioned "Go with established category; throughout the US, we use simply "Town halls" regardless of the local jurisdictional name" yet Category:Minneapolis City Hall is ok to remain a City Hall? Per wikipedia : city hall: "chiefly N. Amer., the chief municipal offices of a city; hence, the municipal officers collectively" Other buildings you changed to town hall when even the building said city hall on them. Living in the US, I've never heard someone say let's go to the town hall even in a small city. --Mjrmtg (talk) 02:12, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Object location vs Camera locationEdit

I noticed that you undid my edit to File:Bishop's Block.jpg. I had converted the (somewhat inaccurate) object location formerly there to an accurate camera location. You reverted the change, explaining "The point is the object location, since the camera location isn't important; we're showing where the subject is."

In fact, if you look at Commons:Geocoding#Geocoding media on Commons you will see a clearly stated preference for camera locations over object locations: "On Commons we record the location of the camera as accurately as we can. The locations of subjects should be geocoded on their Wikipedia articles, and the Commons description should link to those Wikipedia articles."

I think you should revert your change (and put mine back), following this policy. Douglas W. Jones (talk) 21:44, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Nyttend Look2See1 Edit WarsEdit

Hi, Look2See1 (talk · contribs) and Nyttend (talk · contribs). I've noticed you two have been repeatedly reverting each other on numerous image pages (one example of many). I don't consider myself a novice about Wikipedia categories, but I'm not sure what the disagreement is about. I have no particular opinion about who is more correct, but I am getting increasingly annoyed at seeing so many counter edits back and forth on my watchlist. Let me suggest that you please take your disagreement to a forum here where other Commons regulars can comment, or submit the matter to third party arbitration. I think both of you are well capable of making better contributions to Commons than spending your time reverting each other. Thanks for your attention. (Same notice put on talk pages of both users.) -- Infrogmation (talk) 14:14, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

@Nyttend, Your response to this (more of the same misuse of the rollback button on what you consider your files), ad-hominem attacks, denial, and the ongoing concerns many editors have with your poor behaviour prompts me to bring the matter up at AN/U. Penyulap 01:11, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

NRHP in Missouri by countyEdit

I just added categories to nearly a dozen commons categories you created for various National Register of Historic Places listings in XXXXXXXX County, Missouri.
