Re: Possible tornadoEdit

First of all, sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The rain shaft was rotating, giving it the appearance of a heavily rain-wrapped tornado. It occurred northeast of Highway 403 in a forested area, where there were several reports of broken branches and some snapped trees. The tree damage may also have been due to straight-line winds, which were very strong that day. --Anonymous Macaw (talk) 20:02, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Do you have images of the damaged trees? What was the trees' falling shape like? Did trees lay straight in a line or like Mikado sticks? Sturmjäger (talk) 07:32, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
@Sturmjäger: I have transferred your question to User talk:Anonymous Macaw. Pierre cb (talk) 13:42, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Supercell final fr.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Why follow edit?Edit

Hello Pierre, why this edit? --Jean11 (talk) 16:22, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

@Jean11: Hi: "Category:Innenstadt (Villach)" does not exist and should not be there. There is no point to link to a non-existant category. If you ever create this category, then you could add it, but I see no point into creating it since there is already Category:Flood in Villach which is a subcategory of Category:Villach already with the picture Pierre cb (talk) 03:48, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Pierre simply because the category has not been created, which is not an argument for removing this. Innenstadt (Villach) is a district, so an entirely different meaning. --Jean11 (talk) 10:18, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
@Jean11: So create it. As I said it is useless to have a category indicated on an image if it is leading to nothing. Pierre cb (talk) 10:21, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
This is not correct, because it is used to sort the images in a virtual category, and if there are enough images in the virtual category to create this only. This is common practice here at commons. --Jean11 (talk) 10:31, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
@Jean11: First news I have of such a practice and I'm an old fart in Commons. Can you cite the rule on that? Pierre cb (talk) 14:40, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

move to commonsEdit

Hello Pierre, these two photos are stuck on English wikipedia. and It seems the proper steps were taken to allow them to be transferred, but they just sit there. Can you move them please. I don't know how to thanks-Pocketthis (talk) 19:31, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

@Pocketthis: Done! Pierre cb (talk) 03:29, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

User gone Looney?Edit

Hello my friend. Got a notice that someone had edited one of my photos on here. When I got to the sunset photo, some user had added another 6 When I went to his page, I saw that he is on a mission here today to edit many sunset photos. If what he is doing is OK.....then fine. However, if not, I wanted to check with you first before I decided if I was going to reverse these edits. You can visit this URL to see what he has been up to: I respect your opinion here on Commons, and I don't have much luck here when I get in conflicts. As usual: Thanks-Pocketthis (talk) 15:17, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

@Pocketthis: Hi. Some of the added categories are OK but others are not present in the photos. For instance in File:Beach Sunset Newport Coast (6677432533).jpg I can see an "Orange sunset" but not the other color categories. That IP is either color blind, and cannot decide the real color of the sunsets, or is blanketting all possible color categories. If I were you, I would keep the correct color category and remove all the others. Pierre cb (talk) 04:21, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
OK buddy...thanks-Pocketthis (talk) 15:14, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
This is what I mean Pierre about my luck on this site. I take out a couple of unnecessary categories, and this "phantom" puts them back. I have always believed that on Commons: "No one belongs in another man's photo files but the author, admin, or someone authorized by the author or uploader. Anyone else is a vandal in my opinion, and I have been "blocked" from here and punished for voicing this opinion here in various debates on this site. An example of proper procedure in my opinion: When you messaged me the first time you were interested in moving some of my files over here. You didn't just "do it", you asked me first. We then became friends. You wouldn't believe the vandalism I've had to remove from my photo files on here over the years, because any idiot can go into a man's photo files and type things like "Suck my Dick" in the license area, or wherever. I've actually had entire "commercials" printed in my photo files. That is why I didn't upload a single photo to this site for over a year. Well, I'm back because of your help and kindness, but nothing's changed in policy around here. It just doesn't make any sense to me that anyone can edit "Commons". Thanks for all of your help and advice here, but the situation here is hopeless. At least on en.wikipedia, the vandalism is caught very quickly by Bot programs, and removed. Here, they stay until you find them. Pocketthis (talk) 17:25, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
I agree with anon(s) because all colors exist on the images IMHO. If it is not so, you possibly use old computer with bad color reproduction /St1995 17:38, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Sir, you may have missed the entire point here. True, this particular phantom editing is not harmful, and I could care less what categories he wants to add my work into. However, I don't think that anyone looking for editing credits should be able to get into an art form. FYI: I have five computers with the highest resolution available on the planet. There is only one of my images in question: He has been editing at random in other users files as well. In this case, he is not a vandal, but a vandal has the same access as him or anyone else. However, I guess I have to get it in my head that once I donate a photo to Commons, I don't own it anymore. But out of respect for the author, I'd like to see some limited, or protected editing privileges. Happy editing! - Pocketthis (talk) 18:08, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

This is a fascinating conversation and I agree partially Pocketthis:

  • Stupid added comments are vandalism in all cases and should be reverted. Bot policing should improved.
  • If there is a good justification given, I have no problem with it. Many of my images have been recategorized by other users for better categorization and that did not bother me.

However, I would ask that you all continue on the Commons:Village pump, not on my discussion page. Thanks. Pierre cb (talk) 20:47, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for helping to categorize logosEdit

Your contributions to Wikimedia Commons are appreciated. One minor point is to have "logos" be lowercase instead of "Logos". But I am glad to see you taking the initiative. Again, thanks! Senator2029 ➔ “Talk” 09:59, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

@Senator2029: OK. Sorry about the extra work you had to do! Pierre cb (talk) 20:52, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Image for deletion is clicked by me.Edit

Hi Pierre,

I strongly disagree with the deletion of the as these images are clicked by me

please refer to the similar image uploaded by me. File:Buildings at Rishi Chaitanya Ashram.jpg and website from where I have shared these.

please compare the images and take decisions — Preceding unsigned comment added by Salilchaudhary (talk • contribs) 11:00, 07 July 2016 (UTC)

@Salilchaudhar, Rodhullandemu: Sorry but images with website on them are likely copyrighted. You must contact Commons to certify that they are yours and not copyrighted (OTRS procedure). In the least, your photos are publicity for this website which not accepted by Commons. Pierre cb (talk) 03:33, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

As per the deletion of the images with the tag of copyright an email to OTRS has been shared by the concern organization from to grant me the permission to upload their images anywhere across the globle as those images were clicked by me and also request you to rollback all my images been removed from wiki commons. Let me know if anything else id required. Salilchaudhary (talk) 14:41, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
@Salilchaudhar: I am NOT an administrator. You have to refer to their decision. However I can say that your photos are purely publicity for that Ashram and if it was up to me, they would never be reinstated! Pierre cb (talk) 19:23, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
