Headshot Photo[edit]

Hi Stemoc, I noticed that you changed Jeremy Renner's headshot photo a while ago, but wrote that your reason for doing so was was because it wasn't good enough. Can I ask what in particular made the new one better/why the last one was insufficient? Thanks, RichWatt (talk) 01:40, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

RichWatt, hey, yes the previous image as you can see is a 'side shot', see the ONE adn ONLY reason we add images to the infobox is for identification purposes ONLY which means the image that appears in their infobox should ALWAYS focus on their face, preferably from the front. Other images can be used within the article provided the article is big enough to allow for multiple images. I had it changed because thats a side view of his face and body, We prefer "headshots" in the infobox as its the only reason wikipedia allows images on the wiki in the first place. The main priority is the article itself..I hope this reason is good enough for you..--Stemoc (talk) 03:22, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

I see. Thank you for your explanation RichWatt (talk) 17:08, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Edited Selfie picture[edit]

Why do you feel this distinctive image should be in the popularity section, and not head the article? Nim205 (talk) 09:10, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

actually, it shouldn't be there in the fist place, there are Better images that can be used so if you try to push your OWN IMAGE to the top of the article, it will be removed completely. WIKIPEDIA is NOT for WP:SELFPROMOTION--Stemoc (talk) 10:09, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

James Morrison Image[edit]

Greetings - would you please give clarification on why you reverted my image change (as there was none given). I spent a long time finding one and contacting the photographer to ensure it had the correct CC license and I had their permission. Why has it been reverted? Jamespmorrison (talk) 09:57, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Jamespmorrison, are you intentionally trying to degrade wikipedia? yes that image was fine, it qualifies our cc2.0 criteria but its one of the worst images possible, first its badly cropped, secondly its of very very inferior quality and thirdly, if you actually worked for Mr Morrison, he would FIRE you for using such a poor quality image for his wikipedia profile. The current image on his profile is of a very high quality, so next time you try to change the image with something similar, I will report you...find one with a higher quality and better shot or don't bother changing it again...--Stemoc (talk) 10:07, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Please stop attacking other editors, as you did on Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Personal attacks are not permitted anywhere in Wikipedia. That includes in edit summaries,[1] which you have been warned about previously AussieLegend () 22:42, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

so i was right, you just got "personal", just because you did not get your way in commonswiki, you think trying to undermine me here will help your what, ego? Please refrain from posting on my talk page, its for discussion relating to more important issues, not your petty insults...--Stemoc (talk) 22:48, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
No, you were not right. Your edit summary calling another editor an idiot is inappropriate. You've been warned by an admin about similar actions on commons. Please remain civil and refrain from making personal attacks. --AussieLegend () 22:57, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Frank Bainimarama[edit]

Just so you know. Changing the context of an article, like promoting someone in an article without providing a reference will always be reverted. As yet you have not provided a reference reference to back your claim, though someone else who also does not come from Fiji has. Respect is not a privilege, it's earned.

I was reverting a Russavia sock. Per policy you need to take personal responsibility for the edit if you restore it as banned users cannot edit. I have undone your revert so that you can decide whether you want to do that. If you do, just undo me again but can you comment on your accepting the edit in your summary? Ta, Spartaz Humbug! 05:12, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

No problem, done that, regardless of whether i was done by a blocked editor, its a good edit and provides a lot more information that the previous version...wish we could do a similar thing for all diplomats..p.s i didn't see your comments here when i made the "undo" ..--

Soliciting comment...[edit]

Hi! Would you care to review my FA nomination for the article Of Human Feelings? The article is about a jazz album by Ornette Coleman, and the criteria for FA articles is at WP:FACR. If not, feel free to ignore this message. Cheers! Dan56 (talk) 05:08, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

2014–15 Liga I[edit]

Hello, may I ask why you have removed the UEFA competitions template in 2014–15 Liga I? gogo3o 10:02, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

the edits before yours were all vandalism so i restored to the best/stable can add it back in again if you wish..--Stemoc (talk) 11:43, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
IMO you should have done that, cause my edit was not a vandalism. anyway, thx for answering. gogo3o 14:27, 20 July 2014 (UTC)


I'm not her, you made me laugh. :D She has better things to do than convincing you that your image is not the best just because it's you who has taken it. And me actually too, I'm tilting at windmills here when trying to convince the established user who thinks that he has always the truth. Do whatever you want haha. You should check a country of my IP first before making such statements (no open proxy here). ;-) -- (talk) 09:40, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Lupita Nyong'o[edit]

Just wondering who considers it "demeaning" to darken a "colored persons" photo? The flash is too much that it loses detail, the darker image is of her actual coloring. Why is that a problem? You'd wouldn't lighten up a white person because darkening it is "demeaning" would you? LADY LOTUSTALK 15:08, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

I figured you would post here soon enough, yes she is dark coloured but the picture was taken outside, in broad daylight so colouring her to make her darker even though she isn't really that dark in sunlight is a bit similar to the early 1900s 'blackface' that image to the one which was taken inside then you would know why that image is not really a good indication of her looks..--Stemoc (talk) 15:15, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Well other than the fact that you keep changing all my images! lol I'm kidding, I don't care, whatever image works best, I was just wondering about the "demeaning" part of the image revert. I haven't reverted any image (at least I don't think I have) because I trust your judgement :) LADY LOTUSTALK 16:44, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes "ALL YOUR IMAGES ARE BELONG TO ME", hehe, nah we need to get the best images for articles, i changed a few with those with better angles and higher quality, advice, use 'lossless' method, it retains the image's higher quality so it can be used by others elsewhere and yeah regarding Lupita, she is dark skinned but even people with dark skin appear lighter in the sun...coming from someone who is of a 'dark' skinned, i found it a bit too rude to 'darken' someone who would not look that dark in the it only camera flash or the does the sunlight play a part? ...btw, not a fan of the new pic for Henry Cavill, I added a new image myself but when i tried to use it on the article, i realized the previous one (2013) was actually better...i didn't crop the one u added cause it was slightly hazy..we don't need to replace all images, only those which are quite old (3+ years) or of poor quality..--Stemoc (talk) 23:47, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
I myself didn't darken the image, I just cropped it, that's just how the image was when I found it. I wasn't trying to be rude or offensive by saying it was "darkened", that's just what I say to any image with the flash lightened. LADY LOTUSTALK 16:47, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Btw, I added your Cavill image because I like the angel better but what about his mouth? It looks like it's in mid sentence while the other one was smirking. Thoughts? LADY LOTUSTALK 16:48, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
I didn't say you darkened the image, the person who originally cropped and added it did and who i reverted last year and regarding Cavill, as i said, I tried the image i cropped as well, it was good but they both failed in comparison to the previous image..regarding the smirk, there is another picture of them bursting into laughter so i assume Singer was saying something funny about them...--Stemoc (talk) 01:02, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

"ruthlessly replacing lady lotus's pic *evil laugh*" best. edit summary. ever. LADY LOTUSTALK 12:37, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
