Orphaned non-free media (Image:Dali DiscoveryOfAmerica.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Dali DiscoveryOfAmerica.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:25, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Template loop[edit]

You have a template loop on User:Sparkit/sandbox/templates2. This is indeed not a big problem, but since it is only a sandbox and the article Roman Vishniac exists allready (and is even a featured article), perhaps you don't need it any more? Debresser (talk) 18:43, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

File:RGB CMYK 4.jpg[edit]

I don't understand your image at File:RGB CMYK 4.jpg and have made my position clear at File talk:RGB CMYK 4.jpg. I intend to nominate this image to WP:FFD but first I wanted to ask your opinion about what this image is trying to show and why it should be kept. How is this image a fair comparison? What is it trying to show? Since both sides of the image can be displayed on an RGB device (my monitor), or on a CMYK device (a printer), on what basis do you label the left side "RGB" and the right side "CMYK"? rhebus (talk) 16:29, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Oops, I see it's hosted at commons, not wikipedia, and so WP:FFD wouldn't make any sense at all anyway. I note however that over at [1], a very similar comment has been made. I'm not about to go nominating it for removal from commons, since I don't understand commons at all; but if you want it to be referenced from wikipedia again, I'd like to hear a rationale explaining the image. rhebus (talk) 16:33, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
The image demonstrates the difference between the RGB and CMYK color gamuts. The CMYK color gamut is much smaller than the RGB color gamut, thus the CMYK colors look muted. If you were to print the image on a CMYK device (an offset press or maybe even a ink jet printer) the two sides would likely look much more similar, since the combination of cyan, yellow, magenta and black cannot reproduce the range (gamut) of color that a computer monitor displays.
This is a constant issue for those who work in print production. Clients produce bright and colorful images on their computers and are disappointed to see them look muted in print. (An exception is photo processing. In photo processing, like snapshots or 8x10 glossies, most of the RGB gamut is reproduced.)

(Let's keep the discussion on this talkpage rather than duplicating it; I have it on my watchlist. If you like, you can buzz my talk page and say "I've replied").

There's no description of the size of the CMYK gamut on the CMYK page. Different resources seem to indicate different things. RGB #ff0000 corresponds to CMYK #00ffff00 according to this; but this seems to support your view. It seems to me that both RGB and CMYK are not absolute color spaces but are dependent on the particular technology used to produce them; there is no absolute gamut comparison possible as a result. Your mention of the difference between photo and ordinary printing only reinforces this point -- with good inks and paper, CMYK has a larger gamut. In which case, your image is not a comparison of colour spaces but of reproduction technologies. Such a discussion would be an interesting and relevant addition to the CMYK page. rhebus (talk) 11:53, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

I have opened a debate at Talk:CMYK color model if you want to contribute. rhebus (talk) 16:21, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Silk Route Museum[edit]

I am a new editor. Can you help me with the "Silk Route Museum" article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by ChinaUpdater (talkcontribs) 16:51, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

I'll sure try. What would you like help with? --sparkitTALK 19:08, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Template use - infobox:Painter[edit]

Hello Sparkit,

I noticed that you put some effort into creation of templates to organize knowledge, e.g. on painters. Of course it always takes some time until a template is being accepted and used by the majority of authors.

At the moment the immediate benefit for the author is a "nice box" in the article and the creation of some links to proper categories. Maybe more can be done!

I wrote (improved) a Mediawiki extension called DynamicPageList (DPL) which is able to create arbitrary reports of wiki pages. Reports can contain content from template invocations (See http://semeb.com/dpldemo for a demonstration). Using DPL one could build reports which contain name and style of painters, their birth date, a typical painting or whatsoever. A variety of selection criteria can be applied and output tables are sortable (if designed so by the author of the report). Writing a DPL report is not more complicated than advanced use of wiki templates.

I can think of many useful applications of DPL but as I am mainly a technician, not an author, I would like to collect a view opinions of experienced people on that idea.

DPL is powerful but it may also consume a lot of resources if used carelessly. I would be willing to discuss this issue (and ways how to restrict the use of DPL) with 'tech people' - but only if there is interest from the users' side.

Vincent van Gogh PR[edit]

You were part of the group of editors who contributed over 500 edits to the WP:GAR of Vincent van Gogh. There was talk page discussion of nominating his article for WP:FAC, but I think WP:PR is a better next step. Please watch and assist at Wikipedia:Peer review/Vincent van Gogh/archive2. Hopefully, then we can pursue a WP:FA.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 23:16, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

GA reassessment of Caravaggio[edit]

I have conducted a GA Sweeps reassessment of this article and found a large number of concerns which can be see ay Talk:Caravaggio/GA1. The article has been de-listed, but can be brought back to WP:GAN when these have been addressed. Thanks. Jezhotwells (talk) 15:21, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:VanGogh-Irises 1.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:VanGogh-Irises 1.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image page for a missing or corrupt image or an empty image description page for a Commons-hosted image.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
