photo attribution bug

Hi Hans,

Noticing this edit of yours

At one time, I was also adding the ending "on Flickr" to photo credits, because many Flickr users have such cryptic screen names. Unfortunately it creates a problem: if an image-by category already exists for the photographer, the name must always be entered consistently (same punctuation, capitalization, etc.) in the "image_by= " field, or the page won't be indexed in the correct category.

Thanks, --Vox 15:48, 5 May 2011 (PDT)

Photo pool membership

Hi Hans,

I noticed you have made a few edits (like this one) removing the "in/pool-camerapedia" suffix from the URL of Creative Commons photos (ones not in the CW pool).

Because of the quirks of how Flickr operates, it is actually helpful to keep some pool membership suffix on the URL—even if CP is the only choice. In a couple of circumstances, the Flickr page where the photo appears can become inaccessible: Non-pro accounts with >200 subsequent photos; or when the photographer changes a photo to Private. But! In both cases, if a photo was added to a Flickr pool, its page remains accessible to all members of that Flickr group. This is useful to editors, because sometimes there will be descriptions or comments about a photo with information a page editor needs. It also lets us leave comments below the photo, to make another appeal that they add it to the CW pool.

If a photographer has ignored our request to add a creative commons photo to the CW pool, I will check which other pools the photo is in. Sometimes I've changed the pool membership to other photo-gear groups: The largest are #1, #2, and #3. It serves the same purpose but without a Camerapedia reference. --Vox 07:34, 14 November 2011 (PST)

Argh! Hans, I apologize for belaboring the point above—I didn't click through to see that Arty Smokes had actually removed his photos from the CP pool! Feel free to delete this whole comment. --Vox 08:09, 14 November 2011 (PST)

Hi Ross, Normally i allways leave the CP in place with these problem photos because it's easier to trace (search on a page). As you allready observed with these non-commercial photos the author was invited twice to contribute to our pool and not in CP anymore. A fact is that i could have changed cp to cw but then the flaw of not being in our pool is hidden at first sight. The idea of using another pools name as you suggested is of course also a sound one !

Yes, Arty Smokes has not been consistent: He actually has moved many photos to the CW pool (you can see all his wiki photos here) but others are still left in the CP pool, and others still not in any pool at all... but you are absolutely proper in removing the CP pool membership from URLs if you discover he withdrew that photo. --Vox 11:25, 14 November 2011 (PST)

CC Licenses

I think Steve meant to put this comment here on your talk page, but it ended up on your User page instead (I've done that too!). --Vox 07:37, 2 March 2012 (PST)

Oops - thanks, Vox! Moving it here:

Hi Hans, I noticed you were changing the image rights notice on some of my photos from creative commons to non-commercial. I use the CC BY-SA license on my photos which does allow commercial use, provided any derived works are also released under the CC BY-SA, so marking it as "non-commercial" is not correct. There are 6 types of CC licenses and only three of those prohibit commercial use, so you may want to double check before using the "nc" (non-commercial) template for image rights on a CC licensed image. At present we don't have a template for each of the six CC types, so the "cc" template is the closest match. I've updated the cc to explain in more detail what the different types of CC licenses allow. Steevithak 07:04, 2 March 2012 (PST)

I also added an explanatory note about the difference between CC and NC licenses on the community discussions page under the Image License section. Steevithak 07:19, 2 March 2012 (PST)

Hello Hans, just wanted to thank you for correcting the image rights on many of my photos. It occurred to me that I should be doing that myself, so I corrected most of the remaining photos. Thanks again! --John Kratz 06:44, 26 April 2012 (PDT)

rollei tlr

thanks for working on a few rollei TLR pages! I've been thinking about working on them for years but so far have only worked on a overview evolution of the Rolleiflex 2.8 series page. Just so many darn variations could not decide on the best place to start. --Tkmedia (talk) 18:26, 16 November 2014 (PST)

Apologies Hans for my premature addition to the page, I thought you had finished it. It's now a nice-looking page and the links etc. are good also, well done! Geoff H (talk) 14:17, 2 December 2014 (PST)

creating user pages

be careful creating user pages. I notice various improper flickr usernames in some pages you created. These dont link to the proper pages. --Tkmedia (talk) 20:22, 2 December 2014 (PST)

Sure, to tell you the truth i wasn't aware of the fact that an automatic procedure extension created these links. Otherwise would have checked. Hanskerensky (talk) 23:50, 2 December 2014 (PST)


Thanks for the welcome...

I'll try to figure out how to put in some profile info, seems a bit tedious, but then I'm not really up on HTML editing...

Thanks for all the work you guys do here, a very good resource!

Minolta Freedom Zoom 140EX Panorama Date Picture

Thanks for making the image bigger. I always hesitate to make it too big because I'm not sure how it will look on somebody else's monitor screen. Kenny HaarFager (talk) 14:07, 16 April 2016 (CDT)

Kenny, the first image on a page can always be a bit bigger, 500 pixels wide is our standard. In this case it was also the only image and it looked a bit lost in the smaller size. Hanskerensky (talk) 14:28, 16 April 2016 (CDT)
Would more images, from other spots on the camera be helpful? Because I can take some of the back, insides, battery chamber, etc. I suppose I could look for the original manual and come up with more information as well. Kenny HaarFager (talk) 14:53, 16 April 2016 (CDT)

Sure, it's always good to include some images which show sides, back and top. These are generally smaller images. An example for that you can find here : Hanskerensky (talk) 00:52, 17 April 2016 (CDT)

Japanese Vest!

Hi Hans!

{{Japanese Vest}} inserts one of those navigation boxes into the page, where you can click to other Japanese Vest-pocket-size cameras. I guess it wasn't displaying because the closing brackets had become separated by an earlier edit. The template still works if you keep it all together. Rebollo and some of the other early editors loved these things. I'm not sure I'd include one on the camera-maker page though; more for the page on an individual camera. Here, I think only the Minion is in the template, and that has its own page, where the template is shown (top right). So you did right to remove the broken code. Cheers! --Dustin McAmera (talk) 11:36, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Hello Dustin, Thanks for pointing out ! I did forget about those templates. Guess that Topcon page has enough information and still looks good without another list popping up. Cheers ! Hanskerensky (talk) 17:34, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

what is expected deletion on flickr?

BTW, as I Russian resident I have trouble adding pictures to flickr, as it's partially blocked -- I can view pictures but I can't log in.Alliumnsk (talk) 05:15, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Nobody knows anymore when is expected deletion on Flickr. I hope never !!
About the log in I do not know. I see other Russian, man from Mockba, who has no problem. Maybe because of the change from Yahoo to Smugmug ?
btw You can also reach me through Camera-Wiki mail system. Hanskerensky (talk) 05:48, 21 August 2019 (UTC)


dat can be considered offensive :/ I can read English, thank you... Alliumnsk (talk) 15:45, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
