Re: Li hing mui[edit]

FYI.. I did get a few shots of Li hing mui, but my depth of field was off and it was too blurry. It was a tough shot as I had the wrong lens on the camera. I'll give it another go soon enough. I think you're going to like what I'm planning; I've got some good ideas. Viriditas (talk) 12:29, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Burial-Mounds-at-GyeongJu.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Burial-Mounds-at-GyeongJu.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

Lily Kwan[edit]

It's not that I have a problem with nudity. I simply didn't know that we had a cropped version of the same image of Lily Kwan which only showed Kwan's face. Also, it's been a long standing practice to not use a nude image unless it's immediately relevant to the article e.g. breast or penis. Dismas|(talk) 13:45, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

No worries! And I personally agree irrelevant nudity offers nothing to an article. However, just as a note of friendly reproach, all it took was a quick glance at the history to see the image that was previously used. I have no connection to the subject, I just try to make it a habit to check the history in such cases. Anyway, keep on keeping it real as they say, Nesnad (talk) 14:53, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Aikawanase-red-cover-andcd.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Aikawanase-red-cover-andcd.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 18:11, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Are you planning on adding to the list of JSL yubimoji pics?

Ukigusa/Ukikusa[edit]

I am happy to defer to what I presume is your specialized knowledge, but I was going by the fact that every other reference source out there has Ukigusa (which fits with my understanding of how Japanese intermorphemic voicing works); I would suggest you add a footnote explaining why this is the correct form to avoid similar (mis?)corrections in future. Languagehat (talk) 16:13, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

But a quick look in a dictionary or the Japanese Wikipedia reveals Ukikusa, not sure why anyone would change it? I am curious what is driving the change and misunderstanding? Could you elaborate on your linguistic hunch that made you make the change? Evan Wikipedia's page on "Japanese intermorphemic voicing" (I thought you meant Rendaku) seems to support my opinion... but now I am starting to doubt myself, am I (and Japanese Wiki, etc) reading it wrong? Hmm. After all the "Rendaku" page says, "Rendaku is common but unpredictable." When I have time I will ask some other speakers of the language, and see what the average reading turns out to be. Nesnad (talk) 17:31, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I don't know what you mean by "a quick look in a dictionary or the Japanese Wikipedia reveals Ukikusa"; Japanese uses kanji, which do not reveal pronunciation (which is, as you say, unpredictable). For the voicing, compare Tsurezuregusa for 徒然草, where the last character is of course kusa by itself. I'm glad you're going to ask some speakers; I'm always happy to be proven wrong (because that way I learn something), but (like you) I want Wikipedia to be as accurate as possible. Thanks for taking our exchange so well! Languagehat (talk) 19:51, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I suppose I should be careful Wikipedia-ing while drinking, that makes my explanations less clear than needed... but it feels like you do not understand Japanese Wikipedia. It provided the reading of most kanji names (as it does in this case, but not all cases) and you would know that if you ever ventured forth. In any case, if you read the English rendaku page it might make it clear why this word is not voiced in ukikusa and as voiced in tsurezuregusa (a different word!)... maybe you are under the impression that all words when combined become voiced? No. I humbly agree I, and Japanese Wiki, might be wrong--- it wouldn't be the first time for either of us. I need sleep and less alcohol to confirm for absolute certainty I am right, though. In any case, best of luck, cheers, 20:16, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
It's true I don't use Japanese Wikipedia. Of course I know tsurezuregusa is a different word, it was just an analogy, and of course I know all words do not become voiced in combination (I thought that was clear from what I wrote); as I say, I was going by the fact that other reference sources give "Ukigusa." It is strange, if it is in fact Ukikusa, that that mistake is so common. In any case, as I say, I bow to your greater knowledge of Japanese. Languagehat (talk) 22:05, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

TOP 4 requests[edit]

If you want to participate in the graphic lab, you should be more careful and precise. Your removal of watermark was done carelessly. Please re-do that. Thanks. Vearthy (talk) 16:07, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

LOL ... What? I try to help and you mock my work? Thank you? Fix it if you don't like my work, but dont mock my efforts. Offended, Nesnad (talk) 16:39, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
You don't create the rules here, in TOP 4: done carelessly = not done. Try to do it better and I will put your name on the list back. Vearthy (talk) 22:10, 7 February 2011 (UTC) I'm in care of high level of doing tasks in the Photographic Lab. I won't let you destroy the order just to not hurt your feelings, noticed that I wrote it as mildly as I can. I believe you could do better, could you at least try? Vearthy (talk) 22:14, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
YOU ARE RUDE. I will complain about it. I did not do it carelessly, I did it for the better of the project. I have been around, I know there are many rude people like you on Wikipedia, and it is a shame. This is what stifles help. Offended, 02:22, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Humble video request[edit]

1. Thank you very much for the help displaying the cover image for my turtle video. Someone had told me it was impossible. (Nothing against him, he was trying to help.) I'm glad I asked for more help.

2. Could you see if you can make the video run better? No one can see it with IE (or Safari or Chrome). And it's not about me watching the videos, it's about me wanting to show them to my audience (to have WP have good content...every little blogger or company website or such has well functioning video, but WP does not seem to display well). I can see other videos on WP, so I wonder if it is something about the conversion that was done (I did not do it, had a volunteer do it). Can you please see if you can do the conversion better so that it displays to non Firefox users? I just thought since my other volunteer was wrong about not showing a cover image, maybe he made a mistake on the conversion also (and nothing bad on him, he was trying to help). I got permission for the content and it is up on youtube. Can you see what you can do?

TCO (talk) 00:07, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Wow, thank you for your kind words. A user on that same graphics lab did the opposite, belittled my efforts, so I was a bit disappointed. Kind words are nice. About the video, I don't have IE or Chrome, but I do have Safari... so I checked into it and you are right. It just sits there "buffering..." so I tried to upload a reencoded and smaller file to see if that was the problem for those browsers, but no luck. I tried to play some of my own uploaded videos in Safari, and although they kind of played, they didn't really work either. It might be the Wikimedia video player, not the video itself. I will look into it and let you know. Once again, thanks for being kind, Nesnad (talk) 15:14, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

power station image[edit]

Hi. I'm sorry if you were upset and hope you won't take my view personally. I think this ought to be decided by a collection of people interested in the article, but I reverted your addition because you had added it, so I had to make a choice. As far as copyright goes, I see that as an all or nothing thing. Either we can use an image or we cannot. If we cannot, then we cannot. If we can, then it is a question of merit of the actual image. I do not think that what is wanted is a diagram. Yes, I would love a nice perspective drawing of the plant showing where the important things are and what has happened to them. However, my choice in this case is because there is nothing which can replace a genuine image of the real thing in a sutuation like this. Doesnt matter if it is rubbish quality, it is a capturing of the actual moment this thing happened. Like it says on the fair use tag, you cannot recreate that instant. If you want to address this on the talk page, then I will be happy to state my views there and see what others have to say. Personally, I think the original comparison shot which was first on the page showing the buildings from a longer distance was better, though probably even harder to make out details. Sandpiper (talk) 16:38, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

At that quality how do you know NHK isn't also using a visualization? Nesnad (talk) 16:42, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your additions to the Japan Scout article. Are you living here?--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 13:01, 26 April 2011 (UTC) Thanks.

Thanks for the thoughts, Nesnad (talk) 15:20, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Glider in flight[edit]

The video is only four seconds long of a distant glider against an uninteresting background. It cannot show much more than a still photo could. I didn't see what it was trying to illustrate, beyond the fact that gliders fly. Perhaps I should have put a question on the talk page and asked for opinions, but I still cannot imagine too many others being in favour. This is still a possibility for you if you still feel aggrieved. There are a huge number of videos which show gliders in flight extremely well but sadly Wikipedia can't be a "link farm". A good example is www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fs666zqMw0s Down at the Sea-side. JMcC (talk) 09:33, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

It was hard to get shots from a moving glider, I'll look through my raw videos and see if I can find anything better. Thanks for the feedback, I suppose it is fair. :) Nesnad (talk) 13:28, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
A definite improvement. I had a look at the tutorial on videos to see if there were any recommendations. One point in the tutorial that is worth passing on is that the video should be used to illustrate information in the article. For example this could include launching, landing, a tour of the glider such as controls, control surfaces, instruments,and an engine coming out of the fuselage. I won't do anything to your video but if can improve on it, please do so. JMcC (talk) 20:21, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Re: seaorbiter[edit]

Re your message: As I stated on the talk page, your rendering, which was derived from another editor's rendering, is of such poor quality that I think no illustration is better than that. I've asked for a third opinion on the image inclusion since the article appears to have very few watchers and page views. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 18:16, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Re your message: I requested the deletion on Commons after I removed the image from the article, but before you restored it. Since you restored it, there is a disagreement on content and I therefore asked for a third opinion. I am not attacking you in bad faith as it is my opinion that the image is of poor quality. I'm sorry that you feel that I am attacking you, but I'm not. I think the original image is as just as poor and I would have requested deletion of it too if it were not used on the French Wikipedia. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 18:28, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Re your message: A third opinion has been given and I think their resolution is a good one. While I agree that Wikipedia works by continuous improvements, I also believe that there exists certain quality standards. I'm sorry that you think that I am acting like I am better than you, as I do not think that at all. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 20:09, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Doorwarning-seoulsubway.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Doorwarning-seoulsubway.jpg.

This image is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such images would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a screenshot of a computer game or movie. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original image must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the image description page states the source and copyright status of the derivative work, it only names the creator of the original work without specifying the status of their copyright over the work.

Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the original image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other derivative works, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. Thanks again for your cooperation. Kelly hi! 16:01, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Image for lost John Barrymore comedy On the Quiet[edit]

Hi Nesnad, would you be interested in uploading to the template of On the Quiet, a promo image of the comedy that appeared in the Sausalito News dated May 31 1919. Im not good at template pics to commons but can link them. Since this image is from before 1923 I think it is copyright clear. The Url is below:

http://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=d&d=SN19190531.2.86#

I much enjoy all the template images you and others like Deanlaw and Raconish upload to silent films. Any help you can contribute is much appreciated. ThanksKoplimek (talk) 21:41, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words. The occasional kind words to be found on Wikipedia really give me a smile. I also noticed the others seem to be doing similar work, it's great I guess, huh? I uploaded the one you mentioned, although the source is a little low-resolution. Was there any reason for this film to get your focus? Just curious. Eventually all pages will get my notice! :) Cheers, Nesnad (talk) 03:32, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes, usually Barrymore's silent comedies are dismissed by people like his friend and biographer Gene Fowler. Fowler and others and even Barrymore himself liked to emphasize the big costume films he made in the twenties. And also it's kind of hard to find poster or newspaper artwork on his silent Paramount comedies, all made before 1920. Since these films no longer exist, fixing up a wiki article with pictures, posters etc may be as close to seein them as we'll get. The image looks great in place. Thanks much.Koplimek (talk) 15:46, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Yahoo and WebCrawler archived versions of lantern slide The Test of Honor[edit]

Nesnad , much kudos to you on some of the other newspaper adds on John Barrymore lost silent comedies. I don't know where you find them. "The Test of Honor" seems to have no adverts on the web, at least that I can seem to find for the template. To my surprise both Yahoo and WebCrawler have archived versions of the color-tinted lantern slide that was once linked on Wikipedia from the Multimania site which is now off. It may be the only available advert for this lost film. I thought you may be interested.

WebCrawler: WebCrawler images

If this is a do-able template image, it would make a great promotional as it is better than nothing. All my best.Koplimek (talk) 15:22, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, and that's great that you found the ghost of that file online... buuut the original file was something like 300 pixels wide... that isn't quite achievable materiel. Using a considerable amount of 'search kungfu' (was a bit of a headache) I was able to secure a 690 pixel image. It is still too compressed and small for my liking, but it helps to preserve this film. (The site I acquired it from was selling the original slide at over US$150! Too pricy for me to get for the article, but that would provide amazing resolution if scanned!) Personally, I think the newspaper clipping with the story summary is a better choice for the infobox, but if you think the colour lantern slide is better, feel free to swap it. I made a category for all related images on Commons: [2] Anyway, thanks again, cheers, Nesnad (talk) 16:52, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
Ohmygod, drunk Wikipedia-ing is a lopsided idea. I did all that for The Dictator. Oops. Gaaah. Ooops. haha :o) Nesnad (talk) 16:54, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
  • OK! Now I did it! This time it really, really, took a lot of scouring the net. The only decent slightly high resolution (and still too low resolution for proper archiving I think, sadly) image I could find was a monochrome slide. I used the links you provided to try to match the colours a bit manually, and now the image is on the article! Phew! Regards, Nesnad (talk) 17:28, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
Nesdad, I was wondering about what you were saying until I clicked "The Dictator" Commons link. Another movie altogether. The newspaper advert is splendid for it. But good grief no!!!, don't go spending $150 dollars on a slide. I wouldn't want to put you through that kind of trouble. Not having a scanner or anything, I learned something from you today about using two images to color a usable one. Or mutate the resolutions from two slide versions to make an appropriate wiki version if Im slightly correct. Forgive my lack of tech jargon but Wow! I didn't know you could do that. thanks. I didn't know George Eastman House had a slide version of "The Test of Honor" though faded. I'm acquainted with GEH(and the Cleveland Library one), both have incredible collections. However I never went to GEH through their home page, always through a search engine(Google, Yahoo etc) to go straight to their lantern slide section. Somewhere I missed "The Test of Honor" slide being in their collection. Thanks for all your help and great images.Koplimek (talk) 20:20, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Fukubukuro[edit]

The image name uses the word Fukubukuro, why is it not relevant?

Can you read Japanese? The image is essentially the same thing but is not labeled as such in Japanese. Why is it so important for you to add that image back if the article already has one that is labeled correctly? Please discuss this. Cheers, Nesnad (talk) 23:57, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
