Image:BayerPatternSimpleMosaic.jpg[edit]

Image deletion warning Image:BayerPatternSimpleMosaic.jpg has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. If you feel that this image should not be deleted, please go there to voice your opinion.

I remade Image:BayerPatternSimpleMosaic.jpg as Image:BayerPatternSimpleMosaic.png as per WP:IUP#Format. I've nominated the original for deletion as obsolete.

Do you have the original Illustrator file for Image:BayerPatternFiltration.jpg? I could redo it like the other one, but that would take way more work than it's worth. It would be much easier if you could just re-export in PNG. —Ilmari Karonen 23:48:20, 2005-08-30 (UTC)

I've similarly remade Image:BayerPatternFiltration.jpg as Image:BayerPatternFiltration.png and nominated the original for deletion as obsolete. Thoughm if you have the original Illustrator file, that would be still better. --Interiot 06:41, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Colour is no more correct and less used. (Syndicated)[edit]

In all the literature I have about photography and computer graphics, writers use the word Color not Colour. Color is equally grammatically correct and more commenly used. So why change color to colour. (Unsigned: User:Plowboylifestyle)

First up, there's a huge arse boilerplate on the top of my talk page, you can't miss it, it sets out some basic politesse that I ask of people, one of them is namely that you sign your posts. In future, please sign your posts using ~~~~, otherwise people will take you as being rude, or new to the project, which you seem not to be either of.
I beg to differ. Numerically English is vastly more used than American. Perhaps a bit of travel or research is in order before making broad sweeping statements such as that. The reason I forked those articles is because US-English sites are not maintainable as educational resources under the Australian Education system from K-12, therefore narrow minded authors who seem to have a grudge against English have made numerous schools skip over the Wiki project as a source of knowledge. It's not hard to maintain correct spelling and colloqialised spelling for the benefit of both groups. Jachin 04:23, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Perhaps, but the question is why change the text from one language to another. Your preference for English is no more justifiable than my preference for American. So if the text was originally in American why change it. If the Australian education system is overlooking Wikipedia, they have more problems than the tiny differences between the languages. Maybe I'm just tired of looking at my watchlist and seeing tons of meaningless changes, instead of research and content. Plowboylifestyle 05:47, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
There is nothing questionable about the AU EDU prefering to utilise sites that teach children how to use the worlds most common language in it's correct and proper form. I grew up using the US deviation of English due to Microsoft's OS being default shipped here with US-English and most people being too lazy to change over to English-proper.
You see, if you write proper English in America, people will just think it 'neat' or 'different'. If you write American English in English speaking countries, people will think you uneducated, illiterate and poorly skilled in the written word. I can fully appreciate the need for an exemplar usage of the language being stipulated for academic resources, I also really think that narrow minded editors who think it's a he-said-she-said scenario and not one based purely on academia are a major thorn in the side of progress on the matter.
Perhaps your watchlist will be full of better changes if you used your time making those changes instead of simply being the faux American-spelling police? :) Jachin 07:24, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Slow motion[edit]

Your graphics are nice, but may be a little confusing to the non-initiated. Could you change them so that instead of showing one whole second at 10 fps, you'd show only 1/4 or 1/3 of a second at 24 fps? This would remove the ambiguity between graphic and text. Thanks, --Janke | Talk 10:48, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

Space elevator edits[edit]

I do not constantly monitor Wikipedia and only occasionally make edits, so I only noticed the changes that were made today. I honestly don't see that they are entirely improvements, and do believe that the alternate concepts should at least be mentioned early in the article. ~ Achilles 23:18, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

That is your opinion[edit]

I am aware that DP has a low acceptance rate and unusual application burdens, but you are comparing DP to Harvard, Juilliard, the military academies, etc. I am unconvinced that multiple 1500 word essays make DP the most selective in the country, above those preeminent schools. Lotsofissues 06:30, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Space Elevator Graphics[edit]

You asked on m my 'talk' page 'How do I know which Liftport graphics are available for wikipedia.'

The answer is - all of them are available for wikipedia. More generally we have a liberal re-use license for educational and private use. We only ask for attribution to Liftport Group with a web link to our main page where appropriate, if alterations are made to the original work to note this. Bdunbar 12:44, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Shutter angle[edit]

Hi there. I recently moved shutter angle to rotary disc shutter, as this was linked from the shutter (photography) article, and I thought it looked like the right article. However, I wanted to check with people who know about movie projectors, adn I see that you've worked on this article. Was this the right thing to do? Carcharoth 12:02, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Image:Match_moving_-_projection_de_points_3D.jpg & Image:Tracking.jpg[edit]

Hello,

I need to use Match moving - projection de points 3D.jpg and 100 px but I can't since the tags are obsolete. As you are the uploader of these images could you precise the license ?

Thank you in advance.

Image:CalvaryCemeteryQueensNY.jpg[edit]

I just wanted to say....Wow! nice photo! - Nunh-huh 00:05, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Sure, why not. I've done the deed. They're brutal on that page, though! - Nunh-huh 00:08, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
I replied to the questions you left on my talk page there, on my talk page. -- moondigger 04:45, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
Featured status is given after seven days with four or more supporting votes (including the nominator if it was not a self-nomination), if the consensus is in its favor. So if the consensus holds until 6 July, it's in. - Nunh-huh 04:00, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
I replied to the new questions on my talk page again, to keep the entire conversation in one place. -- moondigger 14:30, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
This is my favourite photo of all time. I'm serious. I've never seen one I liked more. It's, quite simply put, the best photo I have ever seen in my life. I love you. Jellocube27 01:27, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
QUESTION: is it possible to license this photo for print media in the United Kingdom? How would we go about contacting the creator? (Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask this) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Grovereaper (talkcontribs) 15:55, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Filmmaking[edit]

Hey, I decided to finally get together and try to start a WikiProject for Filmmaking. Currently the temporary page is User:Girolamo Savonarola/wikiproject until I have a few more editors - enough to justify making it into a proper Project. Anyhow, just wanted to invite you to participate, and of course offer any comments you may have on the project. Thanks! (PS - don't forget to sign here as well.)

Featured Picture[edit]

An edit of a photo you took, Image:CalvaryCemeteryQueens edit.jpg, was just made a Featured Picture! Congratulations, and thanks for taking the photo for us. Since your original was not promoted, it is now not used in any articles. Would you mind if I deleted it as a redundant image? Raven4x4x 09:03, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

CalvaryCemeteryQueens edit.jpg
Your Featured picture candidate has been promoted
Your nomination for featured picture status, Image:CalvaryCemeteryQueens edit.jpg, gained a consensus of support, and has been promoted. If you would like to nominate another image, please do so at Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates.
(I got this on my talk page, but you're the deserving party :) - Nunh-huh 19:08, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
I can't really tell you when the picture will appear on the Main Page. It might be a while though. User:Solipsist might be able to give you a better idea. He's the one that manages Picture of the Day, so he'd be the one to ask. Raven4x4x 00:22, 8 July 2006 (UTC)


Just a question.[edit]

I hate to bug you, but I was wondering if you could tell me if and when a photo I took that was made a featured picture, might appear on the picture of the day. I just want to show my family. The image is Image:CalvaryCemeteryQueens edit.jpg. --Plowboylifestyle 18:58, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Sorry Plowboy, I'm not updating the POTD lists just at the moment. My laptop died recently, which is making it difficult to spend much time on Wikipedia.
The pictures are generally selected in the order that they were promoted, so you should be able to work out when your picture should to be due. Check Wikipedia:Picture of the day/July 2006 and the following August archive to see where we are currently up to. Nice picture by the way. -- Solipsist 14:34, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Graphics Lab[edit]

I saw your name listed on Wikiproject Illustration or the list of graphic artists, and I thought I'd let you know that a Graphics Lab has been created on EN. Based on the highly successful French and German graphics labs, it seeks to better organise and coordinate our graphic design and photo-editing efforts. Up until now, there has been no common space on EN where users could ask for maps, charts and other SVG files to be created. What's more, the Graphics Lab has discussion boards, tips, tools and links; in sum, a good common workspace. Come help us out! The infrastucture is already in place, and now we need participants. :) --Zantastik talk 02:07, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Match moving[edit]

Hi

I noticed that you have deleted the robotic arm entry from the article. Industrial Light and Magic used that exact process for capturing scenes of the spacecraft in the Star Trek series The Next Generation and Voyager. The spacecraft models are fixed and the camera is moved with an arm.

Is this not what that sentence was talking about (and no, I am not a "Trekkie"! lol) or were robotic arms not used?

Thanks Chaosdruid (talk) 16:41, 10 January 2012 (UTC) PS this is only for personal info, I am happy that automation covers all methods, as I thought systems used rails rather than arms Chaosdruid (talk) 17:04, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
