Get an admin or someone in the know to comment on if this image is free to use. I and others don't think it is and as such we have to air of the side of caution. Also that image is just a blur and I would oppose it being used wide spread of wiki Gnevin (talk) 18:49, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Then email the logo to the IRFU , wiki is no the place to experiment with copyright. You should of asked the IRFU if we could use File:IRFU Flag of Ireland.svg Gnevin (talk) 19:16, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

File:All Ireland Rugby Emblem .jpg[edit]

I'm looking into the copyright status of this image and the edit-warring at Six Nations Championship (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). You said here that the image came from a source already used as non-free content on Wikipedia. Please would you provide me a link to the source image. Please reply here, I have watchlisted your talk page. CIreland (talk) 19:52, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Because the small logo is a derivative of a non-free image, the public domain tag which it has is incorrect. Please could you immediately update the tag to reflect this. I should immediately delete the image using WP:CSD#I9 but this appears to be a good-faith mistake. Please correct it quickly. CIreland (talk) 20:16, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Please could you supply a link to the mini icon from the IRFU website and the relevant licensing information, as I am having difficulty finding them at http://www.irishrugby.ie/ CIreland (talk) 20:28, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
If the image your are referring to is the one visible http://www.irishrugby.ie/ at then I afraid it is not public domain unless there is a clear statement saying it is. In fact, the licensing information at the bottom of http://www.irishrugby.ie/3_6.php would appear to suggest the opposite. CIreland (talk) 20:36, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry but the fact your assertion that "because the mini-icon in the tab is not technically on the page it falls outside that copyright notice" is not correct. Regardless, an image is assumed to be fully protected by the copyright rights of the owner unless their is evidence that they have fully or partially waived those rights. Do you have a link or anything that suggests this? CIreland (talk) 20:47, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
You need to find details of the licensing of the image or the source of the derived image if you wish to assert a license other than full copyright. In the meantime, I am going to delete the mini-icon; it can be undeleted at a later date if required. CIreland (talk) 22:01, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
As I asked on your page "If I get the IRFU Webmaster to upload the mini-icon to Wikipedia under the appropriate license (Cc-by-sa-3.0 has been sugested, but presumably there are other options) will this be acceptable?". I just need to know what, exactly, I need to request from them. Bloodholds (talk) 22:52, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
You need the correct licensing information to keep it uploaded. If you want to use it as a free image (rather than justify it use with the non-free content criteria), you need to ensure it is released under a GFDL compatible license - typically this means, GFDL, cc-by-sa (or freer) or public domain. Licenses which include restrictions such as "no derivatives", "non-commercial use" or "used on Wikipedia with permission" are considered to be non-free. CIreland (talk) 23:01, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
So to clarify, if the IRFU or myself (with their permission) upload the image using a cc-by-sa (or freer) or public domain, compatible license it will be acceptable.Bloodholds (talk) 23:16, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, that would mean it was classified as "free content". Typically, they would give that permission by emailing it to OTRS. CIreland (talk) 23:19, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
OK, that's good. Can you tell me the relevent email address at OTRS (I can't see a relevent link on their contact page[1]), thanks.Bloodholds (talk) 23:49, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Nothing to add, just a thanks for your efforts in attempting to resolve this issue. Too many people see the negative in any situation and your attitude is refreshing and needed in WP. Fingers crossed that your angle gets results, the pages look poor since the icon deletion. Keep fighting the good fight. FruitMonkey (talk) 23:26, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Stelling-Riley(crop).jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Stelling-Riley(crop).jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 22:51, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

National Theatre[edit]

When I went to page it was completely blank except for the map, so I went into the history and undid the last revision, which was you, to see if that would bring back the page back and it did. Stevenscollege (talk) 12:41, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I guess glitches happen sometimes. I will re-instate the image - please let me know if it "glitches-out" on you again. Best wishes, Richard Bloodholds (talk) 13:04, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

London South Bank By Night[edit]

As you may have noticed, I've changed my mind and restored your File:London South Bank By Night (9%).jpg. See the article talk page. Regarding the image, you said "wiki refused the full 430MB, so it's dropped down to 80% res. and only 8bit/channel colour". I assume by this you tried to upload a 16-bit tiff? Although some editors upload tiffs, it isn't common, particularly for such huge images. Do you mean 80% res or 80% quality? The image does lack a bit of sharpness when I view it 100%, and I've have expected an 80% downsample, combined with a bit of sharpening, to make it look pretty good. Although I generally support uploading the full sized image, for huge panoramas I don't feel it is worth uploading larger than the detail contained -- and sometimes after it has been stitched and rotated and processed, the pixel-level detail isn't there. If you've dropped the quality level to 80% then that might be losing some detail and 90% might be more appropriate. A quick test (using IrfanView to downsample+sharpen -- nothing scientific) made me think a height of 2000px might be a suitable point still giving the viewer all the detail but not making them see a soft image at 100% -- but do some sharpening when you reduce.

You might also like to consider uploading a crop of the image. Take it from the left of St Pauls and just to the right of the King's Reach Tower. That to my mind gives a great view of Blackfriars Bridge, the lights on the river, and the immediate surrounds, and could replace one of the low-res images on that article. It also crops out the National Theatre which is giving off a lot of flare as well as having a blown sign.

After that, I suggest contacting User:Diliff who is a master at such panoramas. He might be able to give you some help improving your processing of the image. I think the crop I suggest, and its inclusion in Blackfriars Bridge might give you a chance of Featured Picture. Colin°Talk 19:13, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Colin, I appreciate your gracious change of opinion, regarding the subject and the image. I did prefer the image constrained to 850px, but hey – it’s no big deal to have the panorama format. I acknowledge the NT flare issue – I actually asked a friend of mine if it was too much, we agreed it was. I have all the images from east to west of the bridge, I corrected the “flare” a few days ago.
I think what I may do is upload the panorama in its entirety (with noted corrections made) – featuring Somerset House too. If the panorama format (rather than a static shrunk image) is preferred, this will give users more to look at, although it will lack the compositional balance. Adjusting the pixel density is probably very helpful for the user experience, which was a good change, for sure. I was loading a tiff file when Wiki became uncooperative, as the worlkflow for this image has been 32bit (because of HDR) – I will compress/optimise the dynamic range prior to uploading the revised/additional image. Thank you for your support and your suggestions – I agree the central crop, featuring Blackfriars Bridge could be strong in its own right. I love those light reflections.Bloodholds (talk)
For the article image, the problem with just specifying a width of 850px is that it gets truncated if your screen is less than that (e.g. portable device). The panorma format lets you specify a height and will add scroll bars if the browser width isn't enough. So you could change the pano to have a height of 124px and this would produce the same effect you had before on any browser window larger than 850px but add scroll bars if less. I felt the extra height of 200px was useful extra detail. This produces a width of 1287px which fits if you have a modern HD monitor put has scroll bars on older ones. If you want to reduce the height, perhaps somewhere in between, then go ahead.
Although your workflow should involve tiffs, it is better for WP if you upload a JPG that has been carefully adjusted for 8-bit. If you have the dynamic range in your tiff then hopefully you can rescue some of the blown highlights. This is an area that Diliff might be able to advise on as I haven't experience here.
The crop I suggest is I think a stronger picture, though I accept that a very wide panorama is useful for the information it gives. The problem is that it is so wide that it lacks a clear subject other than "view east from Waterloo bridge". If you want the image to be retained in an article and to be considered for FP then cropping to a more defined subject will help the case. I think such a crop has a very good case for inclusion in the Blackfriars Bridge article. Also the National Theatre portion, as it stands, ruins its chances at FP due to flare/blown highlights, though I hope you can fix this.
Btw, I see you've amended the permission to be "non commercial use" (effectively CC BY-NC). This isn't allowed, I'm afraid. All work on Commons or WP has to allow commercial reuse. However, the licence chosen does require the user to explicitly attribute the image to you. I suggest you spell out how this this attribution should be done. Have a look at my images for how I've used the standard template for that, or Diliff's images for a more elaborate solution. Such attribution requirements do limit the commercial re-use potential, so this leaves open the option for you arrange different licence terms with such a party for a fee if you want. (I'll watchlist this page so you don't need to reply on my talk) Colin°Talk 07:23, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and if you upload a different image (e.g., wider view, narrower view) then do so with a different filename. For example, the cropped one should probably have "Blackfriars Bridge" and "Night" in its name. Such an image would probably be a #1 Google Image result. Colin°Talk 07:26, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
I accept and agree with all your points (image format and height) and appreciate your advice (license, crop, processing etc…). The crop you suggested would result in a stronger image. I would certainly award you a Barnstar for your input and assistance, if I was able to. I’ll action your suggestions soon. Thanks again Bloodholds (talk)

File:London South Bank By Night (9%).jpg[edit]

Your pic has been nominated for deletion due to the incompatible licence. If you want to keep it on Wikipedia/Commons, then you need to remove your "non commercial use" clause. I suggest you look at one of my Commons pics for how to make clear any attribution requirements you want to request. Colin°Talk 18:40, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I will allow the file to be deleted. In the meantime, I will upload a superior version of the image (with better name) and the crop of Blackfriars using your atribution clause.Bloodholds (talk) 16:27, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
You can ask for files to be renamed. I think you just use the "Move" tool and this makes the request. Some admin does the actual move and patches things up. The problem with allowing the file to be deleted is that we lose it from the Wikipedia you fought so hard to keep it on! and would then have to re-add it once you've got a better one. Anyway, if you do decide to let this one go, you should make a comment at the Commons deletion discussion so folk there know it is uncontested. Colin°Talk 18:53, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I did fight quite hard. I’ve uploaded the cleaner image and replaced all references within Wikipedia. Thanks for advising me on the etiquette for images under the deletion cloud. I followed your advice, clearly stating that the original images deletion was uncontested. I have done a few crops of Blackfriars bridge (uploaded none) – I just haven’t found the sweet spot yet.Bloodholds (talk) 07:58, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited NW5, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lee Thompson. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Ways to improve Dia-Compe[edit]

Hi, I'm Crystallizedcarbon. Bloodholds, thanks for creating Dia-Compe!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Please add references with in-depth coverage of the company from independent reliable sources to the article to meet our notablility requirements.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.
