Hume Castle[edit]

Gorgeous piccie of Hume. You aren't any where near Fast Castle in the near future? I'm a little bit vehicularly challenged just now so no abiltity to get any illustrations. Brendandh 18:13, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Sure wish I could help, but am somewhat removed. My folks immigrated to the colonies in 1715, and I rarely have the opportunity to visit. I reside in Cincinnati, OH. Greg5030 14:58, 12 November 2006 (UTC)


Nice panorama picture of Johnstown, and the Johnstown Incline Plane. It really improves the entry.Honeygo.

Honeypot Ants Image[edit]

Hello there is a great image on commons of honey pot ants ( see here Image:HoneyAnt.jpg ) that I think you are the original author of. Can you confirm this so I can make sure the attribution is correct. GameKeeper (talk) 22:38, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

I can confirm that the image is mine. --Greg Hume (talk) 18:09, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks , the image on commons has now been updated so you are correctly attributed. GameKeeper (talk) 17:46, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you Greg for sharing the nice honeypot ant photo. I am using it here: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lubertazzi (talkcontribs) 17:34, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Dayton pictures today[edit]

I was just looking at those pictures you took today and uploaded tonight for NRHP properties in Dayton. Great job! Nyttend (talk) 02:17, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

I've noticed that you've uploaded a lot of very nice pictures in and around Cincinnati and I was wondering if I could interest you in this Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Loves_Art event that is going on this month. See: here for more details on what we've got going on at the Taft Museum of Art downtown. Or contact me. Thanks, and keep up the good work. DaveMenninger (talk) 21:54, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

I haven't heard of any other participants yet, but I'm working on getting an "event" of some sort or other put together for this weekend. It is probably going to be this Sunday the 22nd, from 11-12 since that's the only time I'm free. You're welcome to take part at any time though. In fact, I'd say you have pretty good chances at winning the Taft's prize since no one else has contributed a photo yet. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

File copyright problem with File:GrantBirthplace.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:GrantBirthplace.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Radiant chains (talk) 09:08, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

This is due to vandalism; someone removed your copyright tag, so Radiant chains couldn't know that you had once licensed it properly. Thanks for a great picture! Nyttend (talk) 11:44, 9 April 2009 (UTC)


Just curious, why remove this image from the Montgomery County list? Nyttend (talk) 21:28, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Ah, okay; I didn't want to restore it for fear that it was actually some other house. Nyttend (talk) 21:45, 2 September 2009 (UTC)


I was able to add a couple of your photos to this article. Thanks for uploading so many nice shots. Have you ever been by the Springifield High School (now South Springfield I believe) that supposedly looks like the U.S. Capitol building, Stivers School for the Arts (old building, NRHP listed), the Engineers Club of Dayton building or the Reibold Building? Also, I need a photo of the Dixie Terminal in Cincinnati. :) I have other requests too if you take them. Carry on. ChildofMidnight (talk) 19:04, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Nice job![edit]

I just wanted to say I appreciate all the nice work you're doing taking pictures around Dayton. You do beautiful work and it helps to represent the city in an attractive way, keep up the great work!csnoke. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:17, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Advice, please?[edit]

I've posted a request for advice at Talk:National Register of Historic Places listings in Cincinnati, Ohio. Would you be willing and able to try to help me? Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 02:11, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the input! You're so rarely on here that I didn't expect to hear from you for some weeks yet :-) I wonder, however, about the significantly different sizes of the lists that would result. I've thought of a new possible division:
  • Downtown as you defined it
  • North as being north and east of a line: following I-74 from the city's western edge to I-75, then down I-75 to Martin Luther King Dr., along it to the I-71 interchange, and then following it to the city's eastern edge
  • East as being everything between Downtown and North that's east of Vine Street
  • West as being everything between Downtown and North that's west of Vine Street
This looks to me as if it would result in lists that are more equally balanced. Since Vine is the east-west meridian, I'd like to use it if possible, and I'd also find it rather odd to classify structures on the southern edge of Over-the-Rhine as being in northern Cincinnati. What do you think? Nyttend (talk) 00:40, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
I've copied your comment on my talk and my comment on your talk to the NRHP list's talk page. If you have more comments, would you be willing to reply there? Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 00:54, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry to keep piling on the comments, but...are the gas street lamps scattered all over the city, or are they all in Clifton? Nyttend (talk) 01:01, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Forest Tent Caterpillar.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Forest Tent Caterpillar.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 13:21, 5 June 2010 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:21, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Pachliopta kotzebuea[edit]

No problem! I am glad to see new articles. Would you mind checking the taxonomy though? Funet lists it in a different genus, not sure which one is current. I redirected the name funet uses to your page, so it is no big problem. Keep up the good work! Oh, and if you are interested: here is a list of Lepidoptera images we have on commons, without articles on wikipedia, if you want to help out making some articles, that would be great!

Araneus cavaticus[edit]

Your image on the Araneus cavaticus page is actually a Neoscona sp. It should be removed. Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:33, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:DixieTerminalEntrance.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:DixieTerminalEntrance.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 04:06, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Charles Woodruff House[edit]

Very interesting point. I concluded that the house was destroyed because I couldn't find an Italianate house along that part of Springfield Pike, and when I saw its Ohio Historical Society profile, I knew that the house was gone, since that house definitely isn't along the street. However, in my opinion, the building you can see from Bing looks just like the OHS picture, and the Google Street View of the house you found at Bing is conclusive: there's no way that it could have been destroyed. I'll remove the image from both pages where it's used, and I'll request its deletion at Commons. Nyttend (talk) 18:20, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

By the way, you'll note that the end of the OHS profile says that it's not been demolished. This section of the profiles is never reliable — it says that the Van Wert Bandstand has been destroyed; meanwhile, it says that the Lockington Covered Bridge is still in existence, even though it burned in 1989. Nyttend (talk) 18:27, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for getting the photo! I've been concentrating on expanding lots of articles on National Register sites in Hamilton County, and some of the articles with your pictures (such as Alms and Doepke Dry Goods Company and Lombardy Apartment Building) will soon be at DYK. My biggest amount of work has been on buildings in the Samuel Hannaford and Sons TR, which has a lot of currently unillustrated buildings. If you get the chance, could you try to focus on getting pictures for the Hannaford buildings? Nyttend (talk) 23:35, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Winton Place Methodist Episcopal Church[edit]

Just wanted to let you know — this article is scheduled to be the lead for DYK on Sunday morning, and the picture you took of it will be the featured picture. Nyttend (talk) 22:24, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm slightly confused: did I make a mistake in what I said? My point about the Winton Place photo was that it appeared on the Main Page, unlike photos such as the Cox House that are simply in articles that are on the Main Page. And also, I highly appreciate all the Hamilton County photos you've taken; my emphasis right now is on expanding Hamilton County NR sites, and I much prefer working on articles that have been illustrated. Nyttend (talk) 01:52, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
You're wrong — in the last month alone, I've had six DYKs with articles that you illustrated :-) A mostly-complete list is at User:Nyttend/DYK; I'm looking to expand more Hannaford building articles for DYK, so you should expect even more of your photos to get increased visibility.

Speedy deletion of Mighty Og[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Mighty Og requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article provides no indication of why this subject is important. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. Adding a simple sentence or two to the article justifying notability will shift this article from speedy deletion to a longer nomination for deletion unless notable citations can be provided.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Sincerely Dkriegls (talk) 22:03, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi, the deletion is an issue of Wikipedia:Notability. It seems to me that this topic at best belongs on a page about North Dakota roadside attractions, not on its own page. The first issue, is that you have not said why this is notable. Roadside attractions are not a class typically given Wikipedia pages by default like towns. Here is a list of notable roadside attractions, all are notable for holding the "world's largest title". The second issue is that the notable references you added (LA Times) actually diminish the claim of notability because they discuss this statue as one among many. Please review the significant coverage requirement for notability. I would support your effort if you wanted to try and make a page about this quark of North Dekota. Another, possibly more appropriate, option would be to add a line or two about these attractions on the states page, under tourism . I hope this helps, Dkriegls (talk) 04:23, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
I just wanted to let you know that I am not going to propose full deletion process. Notability was not considered with speedy deletion, only the notability of your citations. However, I think this item would be more interesting as an article about North Dakota Roadside attractions. The LA times article alone would be enough to support such an article. So instead of deletion I would like to work with you on making that more interesting and definitely notable article. Dkriegls (talk) 05:39, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

King of Kings statue image[edit]

Regarding this image: the Wikipedia:Non-free content policy and guideline prohibits the display of non-free content outside of actual articles. See WP:NFCC#9.

This photograph (Image:MacroCRT.JPG) that you recently uploaded and applied as an illustration to the article Cathode ray tube has generated a minor edit war and a fair bit of discussion. You can see the discussion at Talk:Cathode ray tube#Image of CRT or LCD?. Basically, it has been asserted that the photograph is not of the colour patterns on a cathode ray tube but of a liquid crystal display and one of the contributors has outlined several reasons he believes this to be the case. Your editing history suggest that you are not technically minded, and as such there is no suggestion that the image was uploaded in anything other than good faith. As you took the photograph, perhaps you could visit the discussion and clear up the matter once and for all. If the photo really is of a CRT, then to close the matter, it might be helpful to all concerned if you could advise of the make and model of the monitor photographed.
