Hey there! My name is Philip Terry Graham! I am a frequent contributor to Wikimedia Commons, having uploaded over 1,700 files onto the site since I first started actively uploading in 2015. I am a thorough supporter of free media and nearly all photos I've taken are published under the Creative Commons Attribution license; most of which can be found over at my Flickr page! I've also put in time and effort to upload existing Creative Commons images onto Wikimedia Commons for usage on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. I am also the self-declared curator of Category:NASA Photojournal, having started the category and helping upload all NASA Photojournal entries since January 2017 onto Wikimedia Commons. If you want to discuss anything related to me or my contributions on Wikimedia Commons, feel free to hit me up by clicking "Add topic" at the top of this page and write away! In addition, if you see any photographs on my Flickr page that I haven't uploaded onto Wikimedia Commons already, and you would like to have them uploaded, be sure to request it here! Place a link to the particular photo(s) you want to have uploaded, and describe why you want to have them uploaded – such as you believe it to have encyclopedic value for a particular Wikipedia article, you want to populate a particular Commons category, or something else! Discussions will be moved to the archive after six months without reply.

(13 December 2018) Comment: Category:Transport icons by Philip Terry GrahamEdit

Hello Philip. I am wondering have you created the Stylised M 'roundel' for the TfNSW Metro Service? Hawkeyebasil (talk) 10:55, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

@Hawkeyebasil: Hey there! I sincerely apologise for the unfathomably long time to reply, as I do not often check my Commons talk page! Unfortunately, I cannot create a vector image of the "M" roundel if there isn't a high quality image of the roundel to base it off. I am anticipating that Transport for New South Wales will have a new information page on the Metro such as this one for the trains, which will have a high quality "M" roundel at the top that I can rip. – PhilipTerryGraham (talk) 00:44, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

(14 April 2019) Comment: Category:PōwehiEdit

Philip, do you really think we should be using a category like this, when it is a completely informal designation created by one group of scientists without input from any others involved in the EHT Collaboration? For that matter, shouldn't we be using "M87*" since that is a more widely used and is what the IAU considers its proper designation (per New Scientist)?

@Huntster: Hey there! I saw the recent controversy surrounding the name, and have opted to rename the category to a generic descriptor name in lieu of an official one, since both "Pōwehi" and "M87*" are both unofficial and have virtually equal notability. – PhilipTerryGraham (talk) 00:44, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

(10 May 2019) Discussion: Category:Hubble Legacy FieldEdit

Hey Philip, out of curiosity, why did you remove the Fornax category from Category:Hubble Legacy Field? It does exist entirely within the bounds of the constellation. Additionally, what's up with Category:South Galactic Hole? There is literally nothing about this online that I can find (under that exact name) except for a mention in the paper The AXAF Deep Field. I understand conceptually what it is, of course, but not why we need a category of this nature. Huntster (t @ c) 14:04, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@Huntster: It seems like you’ve probably already surmised that I removed the category because it was redundant to Category:South Galactic Hole, which in itself is a location in Fornax. It was a way to group all the fields centred on this significant location in Fornax into a single category to a) conveniently group all photographs and categories on the location into one group and b) clarify any potential confusion about the Chandra Deep Field South, Hubble Ultra Deep Field, GOODS-S field, ect. being seperate locations when they are essentially the same location in the sky. – PhilipTerryGraham (talk)
I surmised that might be a possibility, but Fornax wasn't removed from any of the other applicable categories, nor was it added to the South Galactic Hole category, so I couldn't know what was going on. If you don't mind, would you add a description to the category page with some details on what it is, etc? I simply don't know enough to write anything myself. Huntster (t @ c) 20:38, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
@Huntster: My apologises, it seems I had forgotten to add Category:Fornax (constellation) to Category:South Galactic Hole. I went ahead and added that, along with a description as you requested. – PhilipTerryGraham (talk) 21:37, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! Huntster (t @ c) 05:46, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
