WP:FILMS Questionnaire[edit]

As a member of WikiProject Films, you are invited to take part in the project's first questionnaire. It is intended to gauge your participation and views on the project. At the conclusion of the questionnaire, the project's coordinators will use the gathered feedback to find new ways to improve the project and reach out to potential members. The results of the questionnaire will be published in next month's newsletter. If you know of any editors who have edited film articles in the past, please invite them to take part in the questionnaire. Please stop by and take a few minutes to answer the questions so that we can continue to improve our project. Happy editing!

Features images[edit]

I know you're a regular on Featured images, so I thought I might point you at File:2TE10U_Russian_Locomotive.jpg which I happened across. I found the colours and the contrast almost oil-on-canvas like. —Sladen (talk) 23:34, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

you hardworking spam fighter![edit]

heh heh I am just having my first good look at wikip edit/history structure. I put an external link to my company

into animatics page and wondered why it had gone.

I see you have been very bust keeping the page tidy - particularly tidy about ronald kaiser storyboard artist.

Louis Marx train[edit]

WOW - This is very weird. My last name is Janke as well and I've been looking for information on this train set. I was given the exact set from my father whom was given it by his parents when he was little. Do you know where I can go or find out how much it is worth? You can reach me at djanke1108@aol.com.

File:Dettifoss Iceland3.jpg[edit]

Would you mind adjusting the license on File:Dettifoss Iceland3.jpg to, basically, any other license? The problem with "GFDL 1.2 only" is that if WP goes to Creative Commons (which may happen sometime this year) this tag will not be compatible. GFDL 1.3 is compatible, as are almost all of our other tags. BTW, it's a really great image. Thanks. ~ JohnnyMrNinja 21:50, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, I like your version better. I fixed the tag (it was slightly different than the original), uploaded it to Commons and linked to it from the original. Thanks! ~ JohnnyMrNinja 09:26, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

WP:DERM[edit]

I recently started the Dermatology task force and want to create a subpage for the taskforce that addresses dermatologic photos, giving guidelines/recommendations for good images. On that page I was simply going to link over to Wikipedia_talk:Featured_picture_criteria, but also wanted to added a few comments specifically geared towards dermatologic photos (like something about always having a ruler, etc in the picture to keep size in perspective, etc.). I also found a paper online (see [1]) and thought I could integrate some of its pointers into the page. However, I am a dermatologist, not professional photographer, and therefore wanted to know if you, or any of your friends, would help me develop this page? kilbad (talk) 17:30, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

From Saratov[edit]

Hello.

Look at your request and learned of the existence of the magazine «Live Steam». I write with the help of machine translation of Google, the quality of the translation to his conscience.

Allowed to use the photo series locomotive Еа (Parovoz-Ea-629.jpg) made by me in the city of Ussuriisk for publication in the the magazine «Live Steam». Suffice it to mention me as author photos «Photo by Zimin. V.G».


In addition, I have a high-quality photos of steam locomotives:

Паровоз серии Э и его модификации / Steam locomotive series Э and its modifications

Паровоз серии Су / Steam locomotive series Су ru:Паровоз Су

Паровоз серии Л / Steam locomotive series Л ru:Паровоз Л

There's also a series of photos of steam locomotives Ov (ru:Паровоз О) (not available in the network).

If you are interested and they are - please, agree. Zimin.V.G. (talk) 11:56, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Can I get a copy of the author's journal, which will be issued photo? I would be happy to supplement their collection of publications. If it is expensive and not possible, then at least the URL of the page where it will appear. Zimin.V.G. (talk) 12:30, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Photo use[edit]

I don't see any problem with using a short credit with the photo. If you need my name I can email it to you.Shinerunner (talk) 12:33, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Magician Picture[edit]

Hello, Hope all is well. You make valuable contributions to Wiki but could you please remove the magician picture? It is offensive and insulting to me. It shows and stands for every thing that is wrong with magic and helps foster poor public perception. Magic is relegated to the lowest rung of the entertainment ladder by most of the public and your picture shows the prime reasons why. Magic is a performing art and should be the richest of all performing arts. In a baseball article would anyone show poor performer it their living room playing WII baseball?

Sincerely, Vick Gisin —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.55.153.40 (talk) 04:58, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Your improving my photo[edit]

Just to thank you for improving my photo at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:6308-340DisneyLandChopper-R.jpg

I was not able to get that much contrast and brightness improvement, out of my Adobe photo software.

I am curious as to why the KBytes made such a reduction, with your editing (from 1.36MB, to 631KB). When I improve my existing photos, I rarely get much KB reduction, and sometimes it actually increases.

I am eager to learn more about the how and why to improve old photos, so any pointers, information or explanations will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,

Azala[edit]

Hi there. It looks like you were trying to nominate this redirect for deletion, but whatever you were doing didn't work. I've gone ahead and put up a nomination at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2009 May 11#Azala with what appears to be your deletion rationale, but I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment to clarify things; I don't like to speak on other people's behalf, and I can't be certain I've done so accurately. Thanks. Gavia immer (talk) 20:25, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

FPC discussion[edit]

This page has been started to review, discuss, and propose changes to the current closure process of Wikipedia Featured picture candidates. The need for this discussion has arisen following complaints and suggestions raised at the FPC talk page in May 2009. This time I believe we are getting somewhere and would appreciate your participation. Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:58, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

FPC[edit]

I apologise if this is unwanted. You signed off from FPC a while ago dissatisfied. I therefore think your input at Wikipedia:Featured_picture_candidates/Review_of_closure_process#Straw_Poll could be valuable. There is no need to enter into arguments and waste time. Noodle snacks (talk) 03:42, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Fair enough. I kind of think it is sad that so much time is spent discussing policy and debating things. My hope is that with some change to the way things are done people might be more inclined to get back to productive activity. Noodle snacks (talk) 22:40, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

triang T/T[edit]

Hi Janke I live on Vancouver Island BC - my dad bought a bunch of Triang TT in 1959 on a visit back to England. I have it now. Do you know much about it? I have quite a bit of track about 8 personal railcars and about 8 industrial ones with 4 engines and coal cars. a few extra bits too like a walkover bridge, a station that says Plymouth on it and a railyard building. My Dad was an Electrical engineer trained in England but moved to Canada in 1952. He made his own transformer that was quite large but I do not have it now. We bought a new one and it works fine. Some of the old switches burned out when hooked up. I have not run the set for about 10 years and the engines probably need cleaning and oiling. Thanks Mark Lawrence. yes we have many of the boxes and paperwork —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.116.131.137 (talk) 03:17, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Sorry, I have no information about your set. The reason for the switches burning out is probably a difference in voltage of the transformer. --Janke | Talk 07:21, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

poisonous mushroom icon[edit]

Hello Janke,

I made it green because green is used for sickness, at least in America. See, for example, a couple of the images when one googles sick person also, poison control stickers in this country are green. I've never seen a magenta icon to indicate sickness or poisoning. de Bivort 15:11, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

You say green's not something you'd think of for sickliness, and yet when I've asked two co-workers and my girlfriend (and no one else) what color an icon indicating poison would be, all three said green. Here's a google for poison icon. Guess what color appears many times? Green. Guess what color appears never? Magenta. But here's me not really caring that much to replace your image... de Bivort 13:44, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Ammendment, I found two magenta icons on the 4th page. de Bivort 13:48, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

removing warnings[edit]

Hey- per this, you may not know it's actually permissible for IPs to remove warnings. They just aren't supposed to remove blocks and whois notices. I can dig out the policy if you'd like. tedder (talk) 17:37, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your note. IPs may indeed be allowed to remove warnings (I haven't followed policy discussions), but in this case, a school IP, I thought they should not be removed. --Janke | Talk 08:05, 24 November 2009 (UTC)


Orphaned non-free image (File:FH5.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:FH5.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Aspects (talk) 23:58, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

I am the author of a forthcoming book, "Design Essentials for the motion media artist". It's t be published by Focal Press, Publishing in October 2010, Worldwide. First print run is for 6000, we expect the book to be used as a textbook too.

I would like to use the image; http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tartan_Ribbon.jpg in the book itself. Would it be possible for you to give me written permission to do so. Obviously I'd be happy to credit you wherever needed.

I can send you a permissions form that I would need to be returned, confirming that you are happy for me to use the images.

Hi. This poster is distorted. The image should really be stretched vertically. You can see examples of the poster in proper proportions from Google Images. The image is now used on Disney which should be a high-profile page, so it would be nice if this could be fixed. I also note that there is no fair-use rationale for using that image on Disney. I'd do it myself but I'm not comfortable with the copyright implications of uploading images or writing fair-use rationales. Care to fix?

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:KariSuomalainen.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.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

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:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too.

Question[edit]

Hello Janke, I'm Hunter. I have what is perhaps an unusual question, but I thought you might be uniquely suited to answer it since you are an animator, and you took a picture of Frank Thomas. I am trying to find information specifically about the famous spaghetti eating/kiss scene in Lady and the Tramp. I'm looking for anything I can find about the scene, including how it was conceived, animated, critically received, etc. etc. I've been told Disney Animation: The Illusion of Life is a good source for this, but am looking for any other books, journals, news articles, etc. that could be helpful, and wonder if you could perhaps give me some advice of where to look? You can let me know at my talk page or, if you prefer, my email hunterkhn(at)gmail.com. Thanks! — Hunter Kahn 20:54, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Tracklayingwork5.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Tracklayingwork5.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.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

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:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:57, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

  • No, I won't bother. Last time I sent an OTRS it was such a hassle. If you don't accept my statement of permission, go ahead and delete. I don't care. Greetings, --Janke | Talk 06:35, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

File:Colorcomp.jpg[edit]

This file really ought to be a lossless PNG, so that JPEG compression artifacts don't get in the way of illustrating what you want to illustrate. I'd convert it myself, but really, if you still have the original, that would be better.

If you have a reason why it should be a JPEG, I'm all ears. And, of course, if there's no way to get a PNG version, you might as well remove the tag I put on the image, since it would be better to leave it as a JPEG than to convert it again. — trlkly 15:50, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Animating on 3s[edit]

TRAINS AND MORE TRAINS[edit]

I have been working on these pages

I also wrote many (but not quite all) of the pages on individual Soumi lokos and uploaded my own photos. You can find my work.

I wanted to write a good page on the Finnish Railway Museum because when I visited back in 2006 nothing was in English but I am told that has changed and now the museum has information in English.

So I have now done all I can on these projects. Perhaps you would like to add your own photos, information and fill some gaps.

Animation use[edit]

Hello,

My Name is Russell Wallace. I'am currently a senior at the State University at Fredonia, in Fredonia,NY. As a student here at Fredonia I'am pursuing a degree in History with a minor in Museum studies. For my minor I'am working with the local historical society to renovate and reestablish a local train exhibit. For this train exhibit we were looking for a detailed cutout of how a Locomotive works. We found a website that had many pictures and animations by a man named R.A. Booty. We are looking for permission to use both the animations as well as the cut out of the train. I wasn't able to find a way to communicate with R.A Booty him or herself but I saw that you worked with this person on another page. I was hoping you could lead me in a direction of how to get in contact with R.A Booty. Any help would be greatly appreciated and any material we would used would be used for purely educational purposes.

Thank you, Russell Wallace

Higher resolution version of Louis Marx photo ...[edit]

Janke:

I edit Steam in the Garden magazine in the United States (http://www.steamup.com). One of our contributors has written an article about converting a Louis Marx "Commodore Vanderbilt" locomotive from clockwork to live steam.

To illustrate a sidebar article about Marx and its history, I was wondering if you had a higher resolution version of the boxed set that you have posted here. The version uploaded is too small by about half to be able to run in a print magazine. If you would provide your full name, I'll credit you in the article and send you a hard copy of the final printed issue.

If you don't have a bigger version of the photo, that's OK. I'll find something else.

Regarding one of the photos on the featured picture page,[edit]

Hey, can I convince you to change your mind on a featured image linked here, would you reconsider keeping in mind the historical value of the picture as well, knowing that you are quite right on what you stated there but the photograph is the only copy in this case, there is so much we can do ourselves to eliminate the damage done by time with no access to the original also I mentioned that things that could be done with the source we have here, would like your response on the matter please. I noticed you have a great deal of experience, looking forward to your reply. And just as a reminder, if you wish to remove the link I have given here right above, you could do so to prevent any advertising that might happen through this page. Many thanks for your interest. @Janke: HardMental (talk) 22:38, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Gertie[edit]

The cel is from The Library of Congress. The JPG you're looking at points to the original TIFF version from the LOC. I just when through the video frame-by-frame and found the exact frame (at 12:47), and it's clearly not the same—and looking at other frames reproduced in Canemaker's book, it's not marked the same, either. I have no idea what's going on with the LOC item. They should probably be informed. Curly "JFC" Turkey 🍁 ¡gobble! 13:05, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia's rules regarding when to revert someone else's contribution to an article[edit]

You have violated a few of Wikipedia's rules regarding content removal when you removed the sentence I had added to "cartoon animations." Please read through "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Content_removal" so as to not make that mistake again. To summarize, the proper thing to do would be one of the following: a) Ask more than one unaffiliated party their advice on whether or not to remove the sentence and citation. The talk page is great for this. b) Immediately explain to me why you removed it in a message just like this one. Leaving a detailed explanation post-edit works as well. c) Edit my contribution to fix it (without removing it entirely), if the reason you removed it was because the citation was done poorly, or if the contribution needed revision.

I suspect you removed my content for reason (c), because you felt my contribution was poorly implemented. Removing my contribution for that reason, in my opinion, would be lazy; inconsiderate; and extreme. Wikipedia editors are exactly that; they aren't meant to delete everything they have minor problems with, with the expectation that the original contributor will try again, as I'm sure you know; that would be antagonistic, as opposed to cooperative and helpful. Unfortunately, this is a common misconception, so it is worth reminding you about our role, as I have just done. UnderCloud (talk) 03:06, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your note. The reason I removed your contribution (which I stated was GF = good faith), was due to its banality and obviousness. However, I'll leve it in this time. Best regards, --Janke | Talk 13:09, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Stop Motion[edit]

Hi Janke,

I made the edit on the stop motion page. In reference to your original undo reasoning, stop motion is a form of animation, (speaking as a professional MoCap animator) - however it is considered a separate sub-category, hence just a 1 line reference and a link to its own page.

Obviously the kineograph led to modern animation of drawn cells and keyframes, and thus CG. In the modern era, a flipbook is it's own thing and depending on its implementation can be a form of stop motion. But check the use of the parlence in this example of PBS: http://www.pbs.org/parents/crafts-for-kids/diy-stop-motion-flipbook/

Any search for 'stop motion flipbook' in google will show amateur and professional animation using the terms in conjunction.

I have redone the edit because of this.

Re: Animation[edit]

Thank you Janke, but I've been adding all citations and doing a little bit of grammar, mainly looking around at Google Books. I don't have time to improve the animation article since I believe it may quickfail at GAN or at FAC. The article had its peer review in 2007, and here's what it looks like after this wasn't reviewed. It shows the lack of referencing as well as cleanup tags. I think the article is very bloated, since it has lot of cruft, balance and lack of focus at least. What I think I can believe is we can possibly format to a better prose without the copyvios, but I don't at moment since I can't think about it. John (Talk) 06:06, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

Carolwood Pacific Railroad Layout[edit]

Carolwood Pacific Railroad layout

I see that you are the author of the image for the layout (pictured) of the Carolwood Pacific Railroad currently in place in its article. It appears to be hand-drawn. Have you ever thought about creating a computer-based drawing of the layout? The reason I ask is because I am in the early stages of improving the article so that it can eventually achieve featured article status, just like the Disneyland Railroad article, which I re-wrote earlier this year. I don't know how familiar you are with the process of elevating an article to featured status (in short, it's a giant pain-in-the-neck), but one aspect of it is a focused review of the article's images, and frankly, I don't know if an image of an informal sketch is going to make it past that point. As you know, I attempted to create a route diagram of the CPRR here: Template:Carolwood Pacific Railroad, and as you correctly pointed out, it's not a 100% accurate representation of the actual layout. If you have the ability and time to do so, consider creating a new, computer-based map of the CPRR's layout. That way, you can continue to be the author of the layout image in the CPRR article and help pave the way for it to become a featured article. Jackdude101 (Talk) 23:43, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Carolwood Pacific Railroad FAC[edit]

Thank you for supporting the featured article candidacy for the Carolwood Pacific Railroad here: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Carolwood Pacific Railroad/archive1. The review is going well, but the FA admin Sarastro wants additional review regarding the FA criteria, specifically whether the article is well-written, comprehensive, well-researched, and neutral. Since you are very familiar with the subject (I believe you also own at least one of the books used as a source in the article), adding a follow-up to your previous comment on the FAC page regarding these criteria will be very helpful. Once that's done, the article will be ready for promotion. Jackdude101 talk cont 15:50, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Celestial map from 1670, by the Dutch cartographer Frederik de Wit.[edit]

Hi Janke

May I ask your help.

Did you take the photograph of the original Celestial Map and then uploaded it? I know you are familiar with TV and I am working on a drama in the UK and we wish to use it in the background. I need to seek your permission to use 'World Rights inc North America, all media in perpetuity' it if you took the photograph of the original.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Category deletion discussion[edit]

I would like to hear your input on the following discussions: Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2018 August 15#Category:Heritage railways in Hong Kong and Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2018 August 15#Category:Heritage railways in Japan. Both are presently occupied exclusively by rail lines in Disney parks. Basically, the nominator for both, Jc86035, wants them deleted because he doesn't think that rail lines run by Disney can be considered heritage railways. I have countered that they in fact do meet the minimum requirements to be considered as such (note the new info I added here: Heritage railway#Definition for reference).
