Changing image size[edit]

Hello have you read the manual of style, particularly this: WP:ImageSize? It appears that changing the default size of thumbnails is wrong. If you agree, please undo your edits. Thank you --CutOffTies (talk) 16:24, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I have read WP:ImageSize and I don't think my edits are in violation of WP:ImageSize. I have only enlarged some images that already had another size lower than 300px set, but was still bigger than 220px. Some of these I maybe should have removed the specified size instead, but i did not want to reduce the image size if the editor had a reason to enlarge it. Feel free the remove the image size altogether if you find images were an enlargement is not warranted. My other edits have been removing the specified image size so that users preferences is honored. Have I done any other edits that you think is in violation? Tholme (talk) 17:03, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't realize that the image already had a size set. It seems to me that there should no size set at all. Whether or not you want to update the images is your decision. Thanks. --CutOffTies (talk) 17:19, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

June 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from NATO phonetic alphabet. When removing content, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the content has been restored, as you can see from the page history. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Please do not remove language links to articles; this is considered harmful editing. Lighthead (talk) 21:30, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I removed the language link to nn:Bravo from the Nato phonetic alphabet because Bravo in Norwegian does not mean NATO phonetic alphabet. Bravo has the same meaning in Norwegian as in English. It is only one letter in the phonetic alphabet and the Norwegian article does not give any information about the Nato phonetic alphabet, except that Bravo is part of this alphabet. I can not see how this could in any way be seen as a wrong edit.Tholme (talk) 14:37, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Image sizes[edit]

Tholme, you have been resizing the lead images on a number of articles as thumbs. That is not appropriate. Please read Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Image, and revert your edits. --Epipelagic (talk) 22:12, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I don't see how my edits are in violation of Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Images. And I think the edits are very much in line with Wikipedia:ImageSize#Displayed_image_size. Specially the note about forcing image size below 300px which makes lead images smaller than the rest of the images. After your comments I have set the lead image to 300px in Gestation crate (I think removing the image size here was wrong and I intended to set it to 300px which my edit summary said). I also set it to 300px on Gas van. If you find any other pages where you think my edits are in violations of the policy please give some examples.Tholme (talk) 16:16, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Considering your choice with Catwoman made sections craptastic, you may want to actually consider looking at what you leave behind instead of just sliding everything to 220. - J Greb (talk) 22:52, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
Hi,
First of all i didn't slide everything to 220px, but to the default image size (and some with upright set) so that users can decide on an image size between 120px and 300px (with a default of 220px).
And can you please describe what you are seeing as craptastic in this version: [1]? I have tried several resolutions and not in one can I see anything resembling craptastic (except for extremely low resolution below 400px width, but even then less craptastic that a lot of wikipedia articles with images.) I would have liked it better without clear-left, but I can definitely see no reason why clear should be preferred over clear-left. Tholme (talk)

Pigeon photography[edit]

You have changed numerous image sizes on pigeon photography, and I had to revert it because it was not an improvement. Due to its photographic topic, the article is overloaded with photographs and there is nothing much one can do about it other than remove vital information or make images smaller. I put a lot of effort into this before nominating the article as a featured article candidate, making sure that images are displayed in relative sizes that roughly correspond to their importance and size of relevant details, and that the layout is still relatively sane in most use cases (various browsers, screen resolutions and font sizes). If there is any policy-based reason for the degradation that you caused, then the policy needs fixing. Hans Adler 15:08, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Eichmann, Adolf.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Eichmann, Adolf.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 01:20, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Photographer Barnstar.png The Photographer's Barnstar
Congratulations, Tholme, you've recently made your 1,000th edit to articles on English Wikipedia!

Thanks for your tireless efforts to standardize the size of images in the encyclopedia, and for all your contributions. Keep up the good work! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 18:00, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Vrba[edit]

Hi Tholme, please don't keep changing the image sizes at Vrba. It's a featured article, so it has to look tidy, and the MoS allows sizes to be fixed. Removing the sizes is leaving some images large, some small. Please discuss on the article talk page if you disagree, rather than continuing to make the changes. Many thanks, SlimVirgin (talk) 17:07, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Also, the alt text isn't useless. It used to be required for featured-article status, but isn't now. Nevertheless, filling it in (even with just the word "photograph") apparently stops screen readers reading the caption out twice. That's why it's there. SlimVirgin (talk) 17:14, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Calendar and Contacts Server, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Python (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Orphaned non-free media (File:GirlWithASuitcase.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:GirlWithASuitcase.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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 15:46, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.
