So I'm new to all of this Wiki editing stuff. Throw me a frickin' bone here, OK.

Bones schmones; have a beer instead. You richly deserve one for your creation of Consuelo Kanaga. -- Hoary (talk) 05:17, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, Hoary. That's what I'm talkin' about. I really appreciate the feedback.

Frederick Hollyer[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. I've been editing for sometime, but I am a novice on the history of photography - I'd appreciate it if you'd take a quick look at Frederick Hollyer and see if there are any obvious improvements to be made. Thanks! - PKM (talk) 19:33, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your suggestions; I am going to use that quote. - PKM (talk) 19:58, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Alice Boughton[edit]

Hi, just wanted to say "Great Work!" on the Alice Boughton article. Thanks! --Scotchorama (talk) 09:16, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. I had been assembling information about her for a while, so when I came across the introductory piece you started everything just fell together. It seems Boughton's ripe for additional research - for someone as productive as she was there's not much in print about her. Lexaxis7 (talk) 23:22, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Time for another beer, mate. The Steerage is first-rate. -- Hoary (talk) 08:52, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
Dammit, no, it's party season and you deserve not one beer but two, the second being for Equivalents. (Just don't drive home, understood?) -- Hoary (talk) 08:52, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Invitation to Meetup/Seattle6, a focus group[edit]

Hello. I'm part of a research group at the University of Washington (Seattle campus), and my group is reaching out to Wikipedians in the Puget Sound area. We're hosting a focus group designed to gather information on what Wikipedians would like to know about each other when interacting on Wikipedia. Our end goal is to create an embedded application that helps people quickly know more about others' history and activity on Wikipedia, and we feel our design will be much more useful if it's based on insights of users like you.

I'm hoping that the chance to help out local researchers, to engage in lively face-to-face discussion with other Seattle Wikipedians, and to contribute to Wikipedia in a new way will entice you to join us. The session lasts 2 hours and snacks are provided. Sessions will be held on UW Seattle campus - directions will be sent after registration. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated!

Willing and able to help us out? RSVP here. Want to know more? Visit our user talk page . Please help us contact other local Wikipedians, too! Commprac01 (talk) 03:30, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

IPA[edit]

Hey, thanks for formatting the IPA at Charis Wilson. However, the two-letter code after "IPA" in the template name refers to the language; if -vi, it links the reader to an IPA chart for Vietnamese. The one for English is IPA-en. kwami (talk) 16:43, 31 March 2010 (UTC)


DYK for Edward Weston[edit]

Proposed deletion of List of photographs by Edward Weston[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of photographs by Edward Weston has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The article is just a gallery of copyrighted photographs

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Racklever (talk) 23:27, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

I appreciate the issue that is raised; however, it would be useful to have a clarification of exactly what the problem is. There are several similar pages that list the notable output of various artists, including List of paintings by Johannes Vermeer, List of paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, List of paintings by Paul Cezanne, etc. I understand that these are older works that have no copyright, but I would like to know the justification for not applying fair use simply because the images are not included in a detailed article. As I understand your reasoning, if I had included all of these images in the main Edward Weston article, they might be acceptable even though there might be no more detail about them than in the list I created. This seems to be a double-standard of some sort, but I readily admit that there may be more going on here than I understand. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.Lexaxis7 (talk) 05:21, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Including a few famous images on the Edward Weston page is fair use. Having a gallery of the artists best work is not Racklever (talk) 09:50, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia's own article on Fair use (under Fair use on the Internet) includes a reference to a Court of Appeals case that found that displaying a gallery of thumbnails was not a violation of the fair use standard. I'm having trouble seeing how the issues in that case are any different from the ones with the gallery of Weston's images.Lexaxis7 (talk) 18:06, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
  • You've retagged the page with {{prod}}. Given that you're the only real author of the page, you can tag it with {{db-author}}. Prods take a long time. db's don't. --Hammersoft (talk) 22:15, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Constant Puyo[edit]

Thanks for the Barnstar. I enjoyed writing the article for Joseph Knaffl, a photographer from my hometown, so I decided to see what other long-dead photographers needed bios, and Puyo's seemed to stand out. Bms4880 (talk) 00:47, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Minor White[edit]

Hello Lexaxis7,

I visited the photo gallery at the Mumm Cuvee Napa winery a few months ago, and they had an exhibit of photos and documents from the time that Minor White was in charge of the photography department at the California School of Fine Arts. I took a photo on my mobile phone of a very nice portrait of White with a typewritten caption. Though it can't be used on Wikipedia, you may find it interesting. If so, send me an email, and I will send it to you. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:45, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Pictorialism[edit]

Hi Lexaxis, I would like to dispute your reversion of my edit to "Pictorialism". I had added my grandfather (Soichi Sunami), a historically significant photographer who began his career as a Pictorialist, to an appropriate list. A little basic research online will confirm both his importance and his identification with Pictorialism from multiple independent sources.

(The other changes I made were just to alphabetize the existing entries --I have no opinion on whether those entries belong on the list or not). You had indicated I was promoting a "contemporary" photographer, which is incorrect. Please respond and if you find my statements accurate, please revert your reversion. Kitoba (talk) 20:11, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

  • My apologies. Due to the alphabetization I mistook your addition to be that of the name Karl Maria Udo Remmes, who is a contemporary. The addition of Soichi Sunmai is completely appropriate. I see that you have already reverted my change, so my mistake has already been corrected. Lexaxis7 (talk) 22:00, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks very much! I thought that might have been it. Kitoba (talk) 03:12, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Sourcing of Anna Atkins work at Google[edit]

needs source

Was this in one of the volumes of her book? If so, perhaps it can replace one of the lower quality images at Anna Atkins? Samsara 01:43, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

your new article on abstract photography[edit]

Hello Lexaxis7 - I read this: I'm currently researching material for a new article on abstract photography. It's a bigger topic than I originally imagined, especailly since the definition is fairly broad. If anyone is interested in collaborating please let me know. Otherwise look for a first iteration in a week or so. I am from Germany and have some information about this topic. How can I see your first iteration?--Maxim Pouska (talk) 18:57, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

  • My Abstract photography article has already been published. Please feel free to add to it, especially the 21st Century section.Lexaxis7 (talk) 22:59, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
    • I have information that are of interest from the fifties and sixties. Abstract photography using analog computer - 1956 etc. So some more references in international magazines.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 17:43, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Weston1923.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Weston1923.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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 02:31, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
