Commonist ErrorsEdit


Hi! I'd suggest some images uploaded with you to speedy deletion, because they don't rendered proper and don't used in any projects excluding your personal gallery. —Bandar Lego (talk) 13:02, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

No problem. Those were just test files. I was considering uploading a few hundred of those files here, but decided to put them on a separate web page ([1]) because it's so hard to upload here.


Hi Xpda, the way you categorize your new pictures is problematic: would you please read this explanation? For example, this picture should only be in the most specific category, namely Category:Dysstroma brunneata, while all the other categories you have put are redundant because they contain it. Thank you in advance for correcting this (and thus for avoiding giving other users more work). --LamBoet (talk) 22:36, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi LamBoet,
Thanks for the information. I'll fix that immediately in future uploads, and over time I'll remove those superfluous categories in previous uploads. (Incidentally, I'm not sure of the proper way to respond here. Hope this works.) --xpda (talk) 00:50, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Yes, this way works; what you could also do is use the template {{reply to|Username}} for the other person to be directly notified of your answer :-) --LamBoet (talk) 07:30, 15 December 2017 (UTC)


I saw you add reference to so I added this for you:
