I need an opinion on a photo from an expert on the subject[edit]

I have long been attached to this image of the battlecruiser Frunze, but the image at high res is dreadful. Is there any way that the image could be digitally cleaned up enough to have a shot at obtaining FP status? I'd be happy to list this as a co0nom at FPC if you think its got a chance. TomStar81 (Talk) 11:32, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

It's a lovely photograph but it isn't featured picture material. Serious restoration size starts at 10 MB. On rare occasions something smaller passes, but for that sort of work a file isn't really large until it's over 100 MB. If a larger source file could be located the photographers at FPC would go hard on the result of work because it was shot on high speed film, which would have been a reasonable choice during the film era in low light conditions but not the thing to use on a sunny day. You can tell that this is high speed film from the grain at full resolution. That isn't really a correctable problem, at least not in the sense of featured picture criteria. Best regards. Durova412 19:46, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
Amending that. This might possibly be a scan from a cheaply printed book. In which case a scan from an original print might yield something workable. Durova412 19:50, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

File:BHouse2.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:BHouse2.jpg is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:29, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Someone else was the original uploader. I did minor edits at his request. Have posted to his user talk regarding your request, but he appears to have retired. Durova412 02:38, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

If you're around[edit]

Hi Durova! It's been a long time since I left you a note. I was wondering if you knew about the newly formed Editor Retention project? We're looking at ways to help retain users both new users and experienced ones. I'm especially interested in finding ways to help restore users who have significant experience with wp back to the project (see this thread here). If you had any reflections on what keeps you here and/or what contributes to you spending less timer here etc they'd be most welcome. Besides all that I hope you're doing well, best--Cailil talk 02:42, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

How to reply to that? "Retained" doesn't exactly describe me; haven't made a mainspace edit in over 2 years. Durova412 06:15, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
Well that's why I thought I'd drop you a line - if you had any thoughts on what would get you back to mainspace edits etc. But listen no pressure. If you'd prefer not, no worries :) --Cailil talk 14:31, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
You're very kind to ask. Durova412 18:06, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Credo Reference Update & Survey (your opinion requested)[edit]

Credo Reference, who generously donated 400 free Credo 250 research accounts to Wikipedia editors over the past two years, has offered to expand the program to include 100 additional reference resources. Credo wants Wikipedia editors to select which resources they want most. So, we put together a quick survey to do that:

It also asks some basic questions about what you like about the Credo program and what you might want to improve.

At this time only the initial 400 editors have accounts, but even if you do not have an account, you still might want to weigh in on which resources would be most valuable for the community (for example, through WikiProject Resource Exchange).

Also, if you have an account but no longer want to use it, please leave me a note so another editor can take your spot.

If you have any other questions or comments, drop by my talk page or email me at wikiocaasi@yahoo.com. Cheers! Ocaasi t | c 17:14, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hi Durova. I stumbled across this photo while rewriting the associated article, and wondered if it was a good candidate for WP:FP. There are some small imperfections (dust, what looks like a wrinkle in the top right corner, etc.), so it could use some TLC. I don't know anything about image restoration, or have any specialized imagery software, so I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. Thanks for any help you can provide. Parsecboy (talk) 13:13, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

There's a free program called GIMP that can perform all the edits necessary. This is glass plate photography in pretty good condition. Lots of specks, a few scratches, but no major degradation in any critical area. The original photograph needs a small amount of rotation; notice how uneven the horizon is. The histogram also needs adjustment. In spite of the filters that attempt to perform these edits, a really good result has to be obtained manually.
Below are two different restorations of the same photograph. The image at center was a restoration uploaded by a programmer who had spent years coding plugins for the specific purpose of automating photo restoration. The inherent problem with that type of approach is that it would take a breakthrough in artificial intelligence before it could be effective. No matter how a programmer sets the tolerances, current technology compares raw pixel data without a human understanding of context. A filter doesn't know the difference between sky and sandy beach; it can't tell the difference between a surface scratch and the support cables on the Wright Flyer. As you'll notice at high resolution, several of the support cables were obliterated in the automated edit while scratches and dirt remain. The histogram adjustment problems are obvious even at thumbnail.
So if you're asking with a sigh whether that means a good restoration actually goes in at full resolution and zaps every speck of dust manually, the answer is yes. Actually I worked in at least 200% resolution and would use the highest resolution TIFF file available (157.7 MB). The edit on your photo would take me about 8 hours. A first timer usually spends a week.


Best regards, Durova412 20:43, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks for your help, I can see how this can take a long time. I downloaded GIMP and started playing around with it. How do you fix imperfections? The blur or smudge tools? Parsecboy (talk) 02:07, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Here's a tutorial.[1] Durova412 03:13, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
One more thought: these skills you're working on are reusable. Running a first time featured picture candidate is harder than a first time featured article candidate (or that was the case a couple of years ago when I was active) but media volunteering skills have greater reusability. Every image is different, but once you have a grasp of FPC requirements and the software and the medium it is possible to do a large amount of featured level work in a relatively short span of time. Depending on your interests that can be quite useful--the best aspect is the sense of contributing something of lasting value to an important topic. Best regards. :) Durova412 04:51, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Request for image cleanup[edit]

Durova, do you still do image cleanup? If so, would you consider taking a look at File:King the Vice President.jpg? I'm not set up to do it, or I wouldn't pester you. thanks - KillerChihuahua 14:18, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Heavily damaged eyes are possibly the most difficult thing to restore. The human eye interprets that gaze intuitively, but imaging software has no understanding of context. A few misplaced pixels would change the expression.
Took a look at the original from the Library of Congress site. Daguerrotypes carry all the difficulties of other nineteenth century photographic processes with added problems because photography was in its infancy and people hadn't really learned to take care of the delicate print surface. This is a very soft focus portrait. If a restoration were successful it might end up something like the Augustus Washington portrait of Chancy Brown, which was much less heavily damaged before restoration. The only daguerrotype that approached this much damage I worked on was Jenny Lind, which was a better original and I abandoned that project after 30 hours of effort.
Admiral Farragut had less extensive damage to the eyes before restoration. It was still very much a challenge to preserve his steely military expression that balanced great determination with great self-control. This was the man who said, "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead."
The last portrait ever taken of John Quincy Adams was so stained and so faded that had peen passed over for reproduction in modern publications. Adams had suffered a massive stroke while announcing his vote on veterans' benefits for the Mexican-American War (which he adamantly opposed) and it was impossible to move him from the rotunda; he lingered three days before expiring. Are his eyes closed or barely open? That ambiguity is one of the things that makes portrait fascinating, as is the context that this was the very last of the American revolutionaries to remain active in public service. The living memory of a country's founding is slipping out of view as this rough sketch was drawn.
You might want to check out a blog post about restoring damaged eyes. Work on your original would be more difficult than the David Farragut restoration, and in terms of technical challenge on par with the John Quincy Adams restoration. The after version of Farragut and the before version of Adams are posted here (alternates linked through the respective Commons hosting pages). A lot of editors have the mistaken impression that this is done in filters with a few clicks. Actually the featured restorations are manual work, usually done at 200% resolution for clothing and backgrounds but often 500% to 700% for delicate facial expressions. A 12.5 MB TIFF original is on the low end of usable file sizes for that sort of work. There are basically two routes for this project: a quick-and-dirty approach that would yield a low quality result; or else find a very patient editor and treat that person very well. My work was, by and large, taken for granted (and frequently abused) and I stopped donating the effort nearly three years ago. Best regards and best wishes on your project. Durova412 21:29, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
Dammit, dammit, dammit, I appreciated your skills, why do you think I am asking you? *pout pout pout*
I mean, of course I understand, and respect your decision. Thank you for the time you took to reply in such a detailed fashion as well. If I ever get a computer up and running again I'll definitely read through your info prior to beginning work on this. In the meantime, should you ever change your mind, or feel like a stiff challenge, you know where the image is. Yrs, KillerChihuahua 05:10, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
If you get the chance, GIMP is a good open source program that can do most of the work as well as Photoshop. Something simpler would make a good first project. Seriously, your request is in the realm where the human brain recognizes the patterns, but cleaning up the rest is next to impossible. If I were still an active editor it would be about a 50 hour project pulling teeth all the way. Durova412 05:25, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Image identification[edit]

Greetings, The subject, broadly, is camels. A couple of us on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Military history#U.S. Camel Corps (revisited) were discussing how the image you uploaded of a camel unit at Beersheba came to be identified in French as "Cavalerie américaine sur dromadaires à Beer-Sheva." Any ideas? Thanks,--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 00:26, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Later editors changed the source link and the description. As you can see from the original upload, the original file description was a transcription of an archivist's note at the border of the image frame. It states only, "The camel corps at Beersheba," and does not attempt to identify the nationality of the unit. The image is dated 1915, which as your talk page discussion correctly observes rules out any possibility of it being an American camel corps because the United States had not yet entered the war. Haven't checked the chronology of how or why a later editor decided to claim that this was an American unit, but the most plausible explanation was that someone confused the nationality of the photographer with that of the unit. The American Colony Jerusalem is a treasure trove of public domain photography of the Near East from the early twentieth century; they by no means limited themselves to American photographic subjects. Strongly recommend reverting the image source link and description unless the editor(s) who made the changes produce documentation to justify their alterations. It hardly makes sense to refer the reader to a hodgepodge of 243 photographs for reference, when a direct link is more informative.
Thank you for taking the time to inquire. Best regards. Durova412 01:01, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your speedy response. If File:US Camel Corp 1.jpg, which is my first upload, rings a bell, please comment. Don't turn it into a project. I don't think I'll have to fight to keep the image, but you never can tell. Thanks again.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 01:37, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Best thing to do would be to contact the author of that page and request source information. It would be a wonderful find if true, but Blogspot isn't exactly a reliable source. If it's a book scan you could request a copy through interlibrary loan to confirm and cite that as the source. Durova412 02:29, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Songs by songwriter[edit]

You have created one or more sub-categories in this scheme which I have nominated for deletion here. This nomination is only on the grounds that there is no corresponding article. If an editor can create a suitable article then there is no reason why the category(ies) should be deleted. Cheers. --Richhoncho (talk) 12:02, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

It was a little confusing sorting through that long list for the one category I had created. Might be simpler to inform the category creator which item is theirs--after five years I had no recollection of Category:Songs_written_by_Ed_Nelson. You'll find, however, that the category does not lack a corresponding article. Durova412 15:15, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
I take your point, but having shown an interest in the category, another editor might reasonably assume you had interest in songwriters generally. BTW You might like to clarify where the main article is, I am none the wiser. --Richhoncho (talk) 17:13, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the followup; after reading the full deletion discussion this makes perfect sense. Well done and thank you for your attention to the subject. :) Durova412 04:30, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

WP:BLANK[edit]

I am going over your edits and activities, and noticed you have blanked User talk:Arkhamite. Is this kosher? Is this standard practice per WP:BLANK or some other community policy? To blank other people's user pages? What is the current state of affairs on this? Int21h (talk) 02:36, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

If you have indeed been going over my edits and activities, then surely you have noticed that I haven't edited mainspace in three years. Please direct your questions to an active Wikipedian. The name you mention scarcely rings a bell, and I am not your servant to be ordered in such a way. Durova412 04:34, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
My good sir (or madam), after reading this conversation and negotiating with Durova I have an offer to make. She is willing to research and an answer to your question if you first explain the decisions you made on April 12, 2007. Bring documentation and be prepared to answer loaded questions from a random stranger. Or if you prefer alternatives, either create a fully disclosed alternate account and earn Wikipedia's Triple Crown or else upload a video to YouTube of yourself dancing the pas de deux from The Nutcracker. Hamlet, Prince of Trollmarkbugs and goblins 06:14, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Whoa whoa whoa. I came here because you were simply the most accessable and veteran on a topic of concern to me. Jeez. Int21h (talk) 18:20, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
(edit conflict) To answer the question, yes it is kosher, and can easily be undone if necessary (which it isn't in this case). I am curious, though, why you are concerned about something which happened almost 6 years ago? (see this diff). The edit summaries give you all the information you need: the editor was blocked for making personal threats and other similarly unacceptable actions. It is often the case that the user's talk page is blanked on request and the userpage is deleted on request. I can't say if there was a request, but it's certainly a strong possibility. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 06:17, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Joe. So it was him? I didn't even remember. Cheers. :) Durova412 06:34, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
If you're asking if Int21h and Arkhamite are related, I'm not sure. Certainly, bringing up such a stale topic as if it was current ("...I am going over your edits and activities, and noticed you have blanked...") lends some credence to that train of thought. I haven't had time to compare and see if there are any ducks around. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:38, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
FWIW this is what the blanking guideline looked like in April 2007. Seems like an attempt to manufacture an ex post facto complaint. Funny that anyone would bother. Durova412 06:48, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that conflict is what brought this to my attention, but I care not about the actual conflict, and just the reasons for the blanking. Durova, this was simply the most obvious example, like I said from an active editor (active in that you were still editing as of within a month.) "It is often the case that the user's talk page is blanked on request and the userpage is deleted on request." And from the comment above, a previous version of WP:BLANK that has been edited away, is why I go to veteran editors. Int21h (talk) 18:20, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
And as to why I am "concerned", it relates to a recent conflict of mine, for which a review of major controversies and actions by "flagged" editors (as in some sort of administrative responsibility) is in order. Again, simply the most accessible and veteran. Int21h (talk) 18:24, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

To Nihonjoe: The OP was asking whether Arkhamite was a well-known banned editor. The Arkhamite userpage links to the ban discussion where no mention of that other editor occurred. It also provides context for why the userspace got blanked--very understandable under the circumstances. So it seems unlikely that Int21h is connected to either account. The odd thing is why anyone would dig back so far in the past to a unanimous and uncontroversial community decision, and then halt at that point to raise a fuss without taking another two minutes to see why it was handled that way.

To Int21h: whatever recent controversy you were in that you think this relates to, it is remarkable that you found that obscure user page without noticing that WP:BLANK had nothing to say about blanking user pages back in early 2007. My edit history has nearly 60,000 actions. The only easily searchable index is at the administrative noticeboard where the ban was discussed, and if you had searched there you would have quickly seen why it was handled that way. I have little idea how standards have changed six years later, although it would not be difficult to imagine that if something that extreme occurred again the end result would have been about the same. Durova412 18:38, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

OK OK. I missed the whole discussion about whoever that person was. My bad. I don't care about Arkhamite (yes I obviously know he was banned that much is obvious by the userpage) or the controversy surrounding it at this point. The link to the old policy (it is changed) was what I was after. These controversies are too much for me and it would simply take too long to go through old controversies to determine policy as a first step; it is simpler just to ask the most reasonably informed editor and get shortcuts about a point in question. You obviously think I am wrong, and I would love to answer your question about my question's remarkable-ness but I'm not sure that is really what you want here, so with that goodbye. Int21h (talk) 18:50, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
So how exactly did you find that example, did someone point you there? If "it would simply take too long to go through old controversies," then why search for precedents in the edit history of a former admin who resigned the bit more than five years ago and hasn't edited an article in three years? There's something here you aren't telling. Durova412 18:56, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Admin?[edit]

Are you an Admin? Dell table (talk) 00:46, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Durova is not an admin, and is pretty much inactive here. I'm not sure what the context for this question is. For future reference, you can type a user's name into the box here to check. If you want more background info, see this arbcom case.Jake Wartenberg 03:09, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. (she's an appreciated and missed contributor). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dell_table (talkcontribs)
Um, actually I apologized and resigned. Why are you so concerned about something that happened in 2007? Especially since I haven't even edited in three years? Durova412 21:00, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Well...its not what I remember.--MONGO 22:59, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Mongo. You're a trooper. :) Durova412 23:01, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Biscayne National Park languishes at FAC...it could use a set of neutral eyes to help a first time FA nominator out. You always did a good job providing a neutral analysis of articles I thought....if you feel inclined.--MONGO 23:08, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

(outdent) The FAC is a redlink, but it's quite an impressive achievement you've made at that article. Good structure, well referenced. A few suggestions:

  • The official park map should be US Government public domain, right? Would be very useful to see a visual outline of the park's boundaries (linked for convenience, can be modified for article display).
  • The article introduction gives a misleading impression that the only endangered species within the park boundaries are cacti and palms. One of the more interesting and significant things about this park is the variety of endangered species that live there, including the American Crocodile (definitely endangered, and an impressive creature--one of the world's largest crocodilians). Rather than listing specific endangered species, might be better to provide an estimate of the scope and variety.
  • If I recall correctly, south Florida has the only habitats in the world where alligators and crocodiles coexist. Don't have a source for that unfortunately (learned it many years ago) but should be easily verifiable if true. Worth mentioning even though alligators are relatively uncommon within park grounds.
  • Are there endangered insects and endangered fish in the park?
  • Might be useful to organize the bird population in terms of migratory patterns. Florida is the winter migratory location for a variety of North American bird species and the summer migratory location for several South American and Mesoamerican species. Since it's one of the few major land masses in this part of the world at that latitude that isn't arid, the variety of species is incredible. Could be good to provide an indication of which season various species would be present, as well as a mention of the nonmigratory species (the Snail Kite comes to mind because it's a common site in the Everglades, although am unsure whether apple snails would be found around Biscayne Bay).
  • A handful of phrases could use a little proofreading polish. One of the facts most readers would be unfamiliar with is that "island" and "key" or "cay" are essentially interchangeable terms in this part of the world (the latter two originated from the Taino people of the Bahamas). Might be too much of a digression to give the etymology, so not sure how to rephrase "The largest key or island is..." which is a turn of phrase that could easily give the impression that keys and islands are different. Subordinate commas might solve that dilemma. Another much simpler phrasing that needs minor editing is, "as well as an occasional crocodiles..."

Overall, great work as always. Mainly could use a bit of expansion about the ecology. Durova412 00:24, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank You! Excellent suggestions. I recognize that things went sideways for you and you have every right to feel somewhat indignant, but you have a keen eye which can still make a difference, especially at FAC and similar. The primary editor there (Acroterion) is an excellent admin and has 1600 plus article starts but this is his first FA effort. My contributions are minimal.--MONGO 10:46, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
I've addressed and responded to your comments on the FAC page if you'd like to take another look - thanks for everything. Acroterion (talk) 22:40, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Supported. Great work. :) Durova412 19:01, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

In keeping with current standards and acknowledging your contributions and your voluntary sacrifice...

For grace under withering fire in 2007 (and continuing until today...), you are hereby awarded this Purple Heart.

--DHeyward (talk) 06:27, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks both of you. And don't worry too much, it wasn't the trolls that caused the departure. Cheers! Durova412 20:24, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
You're one of the good guys, Penwhale. Don't know how you do it; kudos to you. :) Durova412 20:16, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Do you want to collaborate in the edition of Jessie J's page?[edit]

Hi, I'm JD3rulo. The thing is that I'm a huge fan of Jessie J, I have made changes in her page, but other users have removed them, replying that the links I referred to don't belong to reliable sources. So I'm wondering if you could dedicate part of your time in helping me to fill some topics that are abandoned, such as Jessie J's vocal type, range and also writing updated news about her career lately. I hope you can help me, cause it seems Jessie's page has been forgotten. If you need some help to write about any article or making research, you can count on me, so this is the only thing I can give you: my friendship to make wikipedia a better and updated site. Chao, have a nice day!JD3rulo (talk) 00:32, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
