Louisville pictures[edit]

I noticed the message you left on Stevie's talk page. I am the one who posted many of the pictures you've been wanting to use, but were unable to as I did not put them on Commons. I only recently made a Commons account, and it was so much easier for me to upload directly onto English Wikipedia. There are tags available to request photos to be moved to Commons. I also saw that you want to have Louisville featured in French Wikipedia. You might want to check out Portal:Louisville, which recently became a Featured Portal. I hope this helps.--Bedford 16:09, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

No prob. I know that it is possible to put picture from wikipedia EN to commons. I was just speaking for the pictures that you will make in the future... I will upload the interesting pictures that I need in a couple of days.... For the portal, I know it and it helps me ! :) For the featured article, I think that we have already done a good job. I needed to create a lof of articles about Louisville but now I think the most important are done... I think all the interessant information in the wikipedia En are now in the french version... ;) Have you seen our job ? :) User:Sylfred1977 22:15, 31 March 2008 (CET) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.186.46.16 (talk)
I have occasionally, where I see a new link to a French version of an article I worked on, especially if I created it. So far, so good. You probably ought to make sure you use pictures I took of the King Louis XVI statue in front of Louisville Metro Hall, seeing as how it was given to the city by Montpelier.--Bedford 00:47, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
The article about Louisville Metro Hall is done in french now. I will put the pictures. But I don't understand the difference between Louisville Metro Hall and Louisville City Hall ? Could you explain me? Sylfred1977 17:40, 1 April 2008 (CET)
Sure thing, Before the city of Louisville and Jefferson County merged governments, Louisville Metro Hall was known as the Jefferson County Courthouse. After merger, the Courthouse became Louisville Metro Hall, and Louisville City Hall kept the same name. Different offices are in the different buildings. BTW, have you done an article for Little Loomhouse? You might also want to mention the cities across the river of Jeffersonville, Clarksville, and New Albany. Jeffersonville was the only city designed by Thomas Jefferson, Clarksville is the oldest town in the "Old Northwest", and New Albany was the largest city in Indiana prior to 1970. Plenty of history there as well. Also note we recently did History of the French in Louisville.--Bedford 16:42, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Ok, understand. The 2 articles are done now... I will do tomorrow Little Loomhouse (for happy birthay song or Joyeux anniversaire) and History of the French in Louisville (have you got History of the Belgian in Louisville ? lol :) ). New Albany and Clarksville are already done... But I will be short in time to do the article about Jeffersonville... In fact, there is a contest on wikipedia fr from march to end of april. Our team are working on 5 articles about Geography of USA. (Louisville, Glacier national park, mammoth national park, Baltimore and Denver). And we have still a lot of work for this month ! ;-)...
