User talk:Ronhjones

Hi there! To keep the flow of conversations, I like to keep threads on one page where possible. So, if you post a message here, I'll probably respond to it here - I do have e-mail alerts for this page. Conversely, if I post a message on your talk page, you can respond there if you wish; since I've edited your talk page I'll have it on my watchlist. Thanks!

If you wish to contact me privately you can email me

Thank you for your contribution to Wiki Loves Africa 2017

The project is a celebration of the visual diversity of Africa on Wikipedia and its sister projects. There are several fun ways you can help us to make the impact of Wiki Loves Africa stronger:

  • Add more categories to your images so that people will find them to use them in articles ... you can see how to do this here: Quick Guide to Categories on Commons
  • Add your image to a relevant Wikipedia article, i.e. if your image shows a tailor sewing, then add the image to an article on Sewing or Tailors - this allows readers to see different global perspectives of a universal subject. You can see how to do this here: How to insert images into Wikipedia using WikiText
  • Improve the images description to make them easier to understand and reuse.
  • If there is no article that reflects the subject of your images, then start an article about that subject. If you are a new editor, you can see how to do that here: Creating your first article
  • Add more images - you can add more images or media that reflect interesting and encyclopedic subjects in your immediate community.
  • Become involved in (or start) your local Wikimedia community groups - it is a lot of fun, and is important! Find the existing groups here: Wikimedia groups across Africa

We look forward to seeing your contributions!!

Here is the license information of File tagging File:Lydia Wabs.jpgEdit

I got the licence link from flickr to the file allowing its re-use thank you in advance and hope the tag will be removed {{Boy Addi (talk) 07:49, 24 November 2017 (UTC)|07:38, 24 November 2017|Boy Addi}} Here is the link to file marked for deletion

Files Uploaded by User:Boy AddiEdit

Pliz I am sorry since most of the photos are marked Copyvio. The flikr account belongs to a photographer who I source most of the files from .Please give it a second thought. I upload from the flikr account because I regularly follow it.Please let others not suffer from my actions.I frequently rush to post on the same day they are posted to avoid bloggers and web owners from uploading them before I upload on Wiki commons.Please allow the uncopyrigted ones.I request Boy Addi (talk) 22:54, 30 November 2017 (UTC) Boy Addi (talk) 22:54, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

@Boy Addi: Since he is apparently uploading his photos all over the web well before uploading at Flickr, then he (as the copyright holder) will have to donate his files via Commons:Email templates/Consent. If they get deleted, then the OTRS agent will undelete them when they have validated his ownership. Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:18, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

I think the Email providing permission has been sent #Thank You in Advance Boy Addi (talk) 00:55, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Deleted ImagesEdit

Hi! I have uploaded four images that are my work with the help of my team. One of the picture is a picture taken from one of our teammate's camera. Please let me know what the issue is and how I can correct it in order to upload my images. My Page is called SPC-DTU. Since you have deleted the images, I cannot link them here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kshitijahuja17 (talk • contribs) 05:08, 5 December 2017 (UTC) (replied by e-mail) Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:32, 5 December 2017 (UTC)


Hi Ronhjones, Thank you for your advice, I tried different instructions to upload the image to Draft:Anula Karunathilaka article. I used number of templates given by Wikipedia and Commons. At this end I am unable to understand what has gone wrong, or the exact/correct way to upload the image! I really appreciate your kind advice, direction or help to upload the image to the article I have drafted and submitted for the review. Sending you regards rane2030 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rane2030 (talk • contribs) 16:26, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

@Rane2030: I fixed the Draft - but you need to get the author's (Malaka Nandana) permission to have it on commons - see COM:CONSENT Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:36, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi there, Thank you very much for your work. I appreciate it, and keep following your instructions etc Regards Rane2030


Hello, Ronhjones

You are an admin here too? That's cool. :) Working with you on images in English Wikipedia had been pleasant. Anyway...

Do you mind if you clarify something for me? I marked Filetopia images for deletion and you declined with the comment " says PD". This what the uploader said too, in File talk:Filetopia Logo.png. But as I replied, I don't find said sentence. I am reposting the link to the screenshot of what I see: As you can see, there is no PD permission.

Best regards,

@Codename Lisa: Yes, admin here as well... Try - I just saved a screenshot - Firefox with menus cropped out. Ronhjones  (Talk) 15:44, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Maybe your browser is looking at a cached page? Ronhjones  (Talk) 15:45, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I am seeing the notice now. Perhaps the author had temporarily (accidentally?) removed it. The cache isn't a factor because I am on another computer at the moment. And on the other computer, it was the first time I visited Filetopia.
It is all okay now.
Best regards,

  File:Tennis,-CBFry-Mag.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

I am contacting to report a case of harassment and vandalism. (The welcome pages says I should contact an admin directly. It seem this site doesn't have the equivalent of ANI in English Wikipedia.)

It is in Commons:Deletion requests/File:K-3d example, rendered in LuxRender.jpg. There is this User:Dsmatthews who has recently tried to disrupt the discussion by:

Can you do something about it?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
Codename Lisa (talk) 05:39, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

@Codename Lisa: Restored text and warned user. FYI - AIV here is COM:ANV Ronhjones  (Talk) 20:21, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. You are the best. He has definitely stopped vandalizing, although he has switched to casting aspersions. Well... what did I expect? —Codename Lisa (talk) 01:32, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Due diligence on the part of an Administrator will uncover the truth with regard to the "Codename Lisa & Fleet Command" entity which I maintain is a vexatious - Sock/Meatpuppet phenomena who preys on "newbies" in order to create drama then have them "punished" for it. If an Administrator requires assistance they can contact me directly about it. I would place the information here but the dossier (thanks M. for all that work) on the "Codename Lisa & Fleet Command" entity runs to several pages and is derived from data already on the servers anyway, it is a collation of facts that are compelling. Personally I'd rather spend my time fulfilling citation requests by researching books on than waste any more time on "Codename Lisa & Fleet Command". This sort of "game" that they play for pleasure is Pathological, and harmful to individual contributors and more broadly to wikimedia and wikipedia. --Dsmatthews (talk) 19:33, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
