Thanks for letting us know. :-) Rock drum (talkcontribs) 08:39, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Won't be able to make it either. Turns out I need to sleep from time to time or something.Geni (talk) 05:20, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Thanks for a good day. Enjoyed taking photos and meeting everyone. However, having trouble uploading, or more particularly sorting. Uploaded a bunch , went through one by one, showed as uploaded but not visible when I clicked sort your pictures. Tried again, then transferred to another computer. One uploaded and was visible in sort but the block did same and the one was also not visible. Any ideas? Follow-up Finally got to edit up-loads last night but not visible this morning.

If you put in the same details as you did yesterday, it should work. What was your team name? Rock drum (talkcontribs) 09:21, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Cannot get back in now. Team name PC (Philip Stebbings & Chris Bennett Cben 12:43, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Your team has 95 photos uploaded. We can sort through them if you can't log in; did you have any more that needed uploading? Rock drum (talkcontribs) 14:11, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

No that will do thanks Cben 20:01, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi a great day yesterday, was going to upload my images today (Sunday) but your uploader tool is now not available? Can you help at all?

Hi, you can access the tool by following the instructions at Wikipedia Takes Coventry/Upload Thanks, Rock drum (talkcontribs) 09:21, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi can you see if I have any images uploaded, when I go to sort images they are not showing. Name in which they are under is Phil Radbourne. Thanks

There are 7 photos to your name. Rock drum (talkcontribs) 15:57, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, there should be 41? I uploaded this number..I'll try again.
I've changed the upload webpage so pictures can be uploaded and tagged today. Regards, Rock drum (talkcontribs) 17:29, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Hi you said I had 7 uploaded I thought 41. Have now uploaded individually another 10 could you tell me how many you have from me? my name for the site is Phil Radbourne. Many thanks
They've not shown up. I can only recommend you try again at Thanks, Rock drum (talkcontribs) 17:57, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Done exactly as you have said and used your link, it took me to the page I was using previously. Says 11 photos now uploaded so should now have 19 photos under Phil Radbourne. Could you confirm for me? If not then I dont think you will get my images which is a shame. Thanks again for your help. The sorter still does not show my images? Phil
Can you send the files to me through Dropbox - I'm really sorry this has taken so long and has been so inconvenient. Rock drum (talkcontribs) 18:35, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi have sent you the files through Dropbox. Hope they have come through OK? Just I'm not familiar with Dropbox as a tool. Thanks Phil

I have seen some file names of the files that have been recently uploaded, but some of the file names do not appear to be descriptive about the image. The file name guidelines say that descriptive names should be used and I think that it also says that author's names in the file name is discouraged. I am a bit dissappointed to see file names in this format; "WTC PC WikiCov Team PC-59.jpg", because it is says nothing useful about the image and also "PC" is duplicated. 15:26, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

When and where will all the images be available to view online ? Cheers Jez.

See commons:Category:Wikipedia Takes Coventry. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 09:42, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Please see the guidelines on naming files. File names should be descriptive. There is not need for the photographer's name to dominate in the file name. 10:23, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
