Anna

Vote

For the last couple of weeks I have noticed that this user is asking people to provide a tag or a source to photos they upload. Anna has also been busy trying to give some structure to the category system. I am convinced that this is a trustworthy user who can be given more responsibilities.

Anna is also an administrator of Spanish Wikipedia, es:User:Cookie. So far, WikiCommons has only ony administrator who's native language is Spanish. On a related note, it has long been my impression that WikiCommons has more than its share of Spanish-speaking users who upload photos not published under a free license. Administrators who speak Spanish may be helpful to counter that.

--Prevert(talk) 08:51, 28 September 2005 (UTC)

Both of the edits cited date back to July, two months ago. I think it is very possible that she has learned the policies/realized her mistake since then. An absolutely different issue would be if this happened yesterday.--Orgullomoore 20:15, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
Also, regarding the Playa de la Barceloneta edit, besides it dating back 2 months, both Spanish and Catalan are official languages of Barcelona, Spain.--Orgullomoore 20:17, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
I don't think that Anna is violating any rule. As you point out, policy states native name. I don't know if native means official (it would support your statement) or name in the official language of the place (that way, Anna would not be violating anything). My personal opinion is that the policy is obscure (and can be interpreted) and your vote can be regarded as biased by your political option. --Ecemaml 10:24, 28 September 2005 (UTC)
  • Please assume good faith, avoid bias about my argument and do not distort my point of view. Assume that Commons's policies are different from spanish wikipedia. This a multilingual wiki and native names are preferred. I want to know if Anna it agrees with Common's policies and in her edits avoid her personal opinion. Please explain me if this message is agreed with Commons:Language policy:
Anna´s message from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:217.124.66.49: 
Please, stop duplicating categories, there is already a category:Autonomous communities of Spain with the bulk  of the  
communities in it, no need for another named in Spanish with separated articles. It also existed a  Category:Islas Baleares, so   
Illes Balears is redundant and unnecessary. Eivissa is the vernacular name,  understood in Spain but not outside, therefore it is  
now a redirect to Ibiza and also, no need of having a Majorca,  Mallorca, Minorca and Menorca. Let's be coherent, this is Commons 
and articles must be easy to find and understand  for any foreigners who ignore the different languages in Spain. Anna 
01:14, 20 July 2005 (UTC)
And, please, does not transfer spanish wikipedia's discussions to commons. She could be a good administrator in Spanish Wikipedia and not good for Commons. --Prevert(talk) 11:53, 28 September 2005 (UTC)

    • I don't think you've read the guidelines of the DRAE. It says that even if the official name has been changed, it does not affect the way Spanish-speaking people use tradicional exonyms (quien escribe en castellano puede utilizar con toda libertad la denominación castellana de un topónimo o de su institución o departamento correspondiente). Please, read it more carefully and do not make the poor RAE say things that it does not actually say. Regards --Ecemaml 08:40, 28 September 2005 (UTC)

Pau, your statement is laughable. Aren't you one of the guys that violate wikipetiquette in es.wikipedia whenever appears there? You know perfectly that guidelines in es.wikipedia are using traditional exonyms whenever they exist (BTW, the same rules than in ca.wikipedia). If you say that's abuse.... you probably don't understand what conventions are. --Ecemaml 10:24, 28 September 2005 (UTC)
I agree with the use of 'traditional exonyms', but I think a exonymus is traditional when people really use it, not when it appeared in Franco's documents, even if it appears in Encarta or Google Earth. Besides, Ecemaml also have had some accusation of abusing adm powers and imposing unnatural translations of, haven't he?--62.15.156.164 21:09, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I believe Anna to be among the fairest-minded administrators I've ever worked with, and to the best of my knowledge she has no linguistic or political agenda to push. The allegedly broken rule on endonymy is ambiguous, in that both Catalan and Spanish are officially-spoken languages in Catalonia and the Balearic islands, as are Galician and Spanish; this should be clarified in policy before any heated arguments about her fitness for the position is called into question (that being said, I'm for the Catalan and Galician toponyms). Taragüí @ 11:34, 28 September 2005 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm against what she is doing with the toponyms. If you want to put the official name of a town, you must put both languages and not only in Spanish (Alacant/Alicante, Castelló de la Plana/Castellón de la Plana, Eivissa/Ibiza, and so on), because of bilinguism of these Communities, but there are some towns that have only a Catalan, Galician or Basque toponym (you can see it in the road signs) like Lleida (not Lérida) or Girona (not Gerona) or Sanxenxo (not Sanjenjo).

That's how the'd be found in almost any spanish map (maybe different in little regional maps) so that's the language it should be written. Moreover, many spanish people wouldn't know what name that place has (i wouldn't have found Ibiza with that name and i'm spanish born). And people would try to find them at first by a guess with the name not duplicated/triplicated names.
