nice gastropod imageEdit

Hello, your photo File:Triboniophorus graeffei - Chatswood West.jpg is very useful for wiki. I have put it in the article already. Feel free to upload more of them, you can also let me to know about your gastropod images. Thank you. Have a nice day. --Snek01 (talk) 13:25, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

File:Orange Bush Elvina Bay.jpgEdit

Your most recent change to the description of this file,

"English: Plant at Elvina Bay, Australia delete this file, incorrect identification"

confuses me. What is that you want to happen with this image and why?

If the problem is the name of the file -- if it is not an Orange Bush from Elvina Bay, you can put {{rename|newname|reason}} at the top of the file's text and an administrator will rename it to whatever you like. Or tell me, below, what you want to happen, and I'll see if it can be done.

Why not use {{rename|File:Unknown plant from Elvina Bay.jpg|It's not an Orange Bush}}? It's a pretty good image and I'll bet someone else will identify it. . . . . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talkcontribs) 10:27, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

File informationEdit

Hi Poyt448, I noticed you filled the "Permission" and "Other versions" fields with texts like "No", "OK", "Yes" etc. I'd like to ask you not to do that as this doesn't do anything but create unneeded fields in display. Only fill in fields if there is information for them. For example, if somebody else (or you) makes a different version of a file, you can link to it from Other_versions and it'll appear on the File-page. And when the field is empty it won't appear on the File-page as it's not needed. But if it's filled with "no", the field is forced to display because there is a value. See an example here. Thanks, –Krinkletalk 17:12, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Poyt448!

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Gmelina leaves forest floorEdit

Hi, I put your photo of Gmelina leaves on the forest floor in the Wikipedia article on plant litter, w:Litterfall. I shortened the caption a bit to just say the photo is from Barrington Tops National Park. I hope that's okay.--Brambleshire (talk) 03:38, 29 April 2012 (UTC) Thank you for using the photo. It's a fine article indeed. White Beech is a fairly uncommon to rare species, one of the best ways to identify it is the fallen leaves. It had a very high rate of leaf loss and new growth. cheers Poyt448 (talk) 02:51, 30 April 2012 (UTC)


Hi, Re File:Powerful Owl - April 6 2009 Chatswood West edited..JPG | This is an interesting photograph. Can you confirm that it was taken at night or not. Please add this detail to the image description on Commons to explain the photograph better. It would be interesting to know what time of day it was photographed. Did you use flash photography? or is there another reason to explain the light reflection from the owl's eyes? How did you identify the owl in the dark? Snowmanradio (talk) 17:16, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Dear Snowmanradio,

Thank you for looking at the owl picture. The picture was taken at night, with a flash on a tripod. The owl is easily identified because of the large size, (Australia's largest owl species), and the distinctive high pitched "HOO HOO" double call of the same note. The photo was taken at 22:23 in the evening. The call is so loud, that it got me out of bed. And is subsequently the owl has woken me from sleep when they call from the TV aerial above. I wasn't sure if this photo was suitable for Wikipedia, and thought it would be deleted. Glad you like it.

kind regards Peter Poyt448 (talk) 00:58, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Quintinia verdonii Margaret Flockton.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.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

I requested assistance from Commons to include the correct tags for the public domain status of this file. The reply does not help. The original website for the file is included in the text.

There are many of Margaret Flockton's drawings on Commons, such as this.

They are all fine in a legal sense. As should this image, if correctly tagged.

This image is a candidate for a new "Did You Know"

As I mentioned before, please advise the correct tabs. Surely it should be easy for a Commons expert to copy the correct ones across.

Lomatia fraseriEdit

Hello Poyt448,

I think your image labelled Lomatia fraseri is of the leaves of Lomatia myricoides. The leaves of L. fraseri are roughly 4x as long as wide - those of L. myricoides more like 10x as long as wide. I think you will agree that the leaves in your photo are very much like those on the Wikipedia page about L. myricoides. L. fraseri does not occur in the Brisbane Waters area, however L. myricoides is common there. (The distributions are mapped on the RBGS pages - L. fraseri here and L. myricoides here.) I suspect Casliber's image from Joseph Banks Nature Reserve is of a cultivated specimen. I hope you will not mind if I replace your image on the Wikipedia page.

Thanks very much. I hope you realize that this image may or may not be correctly identified. I tried as best as I could to get proper identification. But there is no absolute proof that this is so. I hope the image is correct, probably is. regards, Poyt448 (talk) 08:09, 8 May 2018 (UTC)
