Category:Truck-Makers[edit]

Incorrect category: there is no truck manufucturer that is calles "Truck Makers". The category name was chosen because there wasa wiki article on de:wiki with this lemma. Now, the article has been moved on German Wikipedia because such manufucturer is not existent. Thus, please remove this category and keep the two subcats, that are correct 91.57.90.5 08:27, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Category:Roads_in_Corsica[edit]

All files in this category are views of roads in Scotland, not in Corsica. Fr.Latreille (talk) 21:13, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Yes probably, but these are errors in the file description pages, created when these images were imported, not of the category itself.
In other words, you should correct each of these image pages (after checking their actual content and description). Do not move the subcategory listed there, which is still accurate. It seems that the images were classified there due to the presence of the word "Corse" in some of their description. "Corse" is the French name from "Corsica" in English. (Note that the Corsican name for this island and regions is also "Corsica", not "Corse"). Whever the region itself should be named in French (the only official language) or in Corsican (regional language only, supported only at a cultural level in education, but not in administrations), is something that could be debated, given that the parent category has an existing unified naming for lots of subcategories reusing the same word "Corsica" (in both English and Corsican). verdy_p (talk) 21:48, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
I dropped the incorrect categorizing of those images, using speedy HotCat (clicking on the [-] link). The category is clean now. You could have done this yourself instead of posting something about the category that had absolutely no problem at all. In fact, there are a lot of images in Commons that are listed in incorrect categories or that need better sorting. When there are so few files to recategorize, the simplest way to handle the problem is to recategorize those files. This does not require any discussion, as these files were already categorized in another correct category (Roads in Aberdeenshire, that may eventually need its own separate maintenance). verdy_p (talk) 21:55, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
Note: as the problem is fixed, I will remove the tag added to the category. It should have never been there... verdy_p (talk) 22:16, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
Well, there's five more today. It just seems futile: there are nearly 2 million files from geograph.co.uk, they flood everything. Someone (who? not me) should police category:Roads in Corsica at least weekly to keep it clean. NVO (talk) 05:28, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Closed, the images are sorted now, if more of them appear, no discussion is needed - just correct their categorization. --rimshottalk 22:26, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Leider widersprüchliche Angaben, die ich bisher nicht klären konnte.--Reinhardhauke (talk) 06:52, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Die deutsche Wikipedia verwendet auch gerne innerhalb eines Artikels beide Namen. Vielleicht ist es das Beste, beide in den Beschreibungstext für die Kategorie zu schreiben, und den Kategorienamen so zu lassen. Dann findet man die Kategorie wenigstens mit der Suche unter St. Rochus und St. Quirinus. --rimshottalk 19:12, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Category:Rotate270[edit]

Unnecessary category; creator believed it rotated images. Previous discussion from Commons:Deletion requests/Category:Rotate270

  • Symbol delete vote.svg Delete {{rotate}} marks a file for rotation by a bot. I am not aware that placing an image in this category has any automated action. Finavon (talk) 19:25, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
This category works, I just used it . please dont delete . I dont want to delete this. Mdupont (talk) 20:00, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
Which file(s) did you use it to rotate? Finavon (talk) 20:15, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
see my history:

10:15, 2 July 2011 (diff | hist) N Category:Rotate270 ‎ (←Created page with '{ { Rotate|270 } }') 10:15, 2 July 2011 (diff | hist) File:OffenbachDSC00314.jpg ‎ (Cat-a-lot: Copying from Category:Offenbach am Main to Category:Rotate270) Mdupont (talk) 18:32, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Those batches of files were rotated by Rotatebot after I added {{rotate|270}} - see Page History. This Category does not have a function. If you need to rotate images, add {{rotate}} with the appropriate amount (90, 180, 270}. Better still, rotate images before uploading! Finavon (talk) 06:35, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

Maybe we could ask Luxo to tweak his bot to work with that. It's actually easier to cat-a-lot a series of images in there than to tag each with a template.
Personally, I had move images in a temporary category in the past and then tagged them by bot with {{rotate}} --  Docu  at 08:20, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Category:Weilburger_Schiffstunnel[edit]

Should be renamed to Category:Weilburger Schifffahrtstunnel due to movement of article in german wikipedia. SteMicha (talk) 08:43, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Correct name should be used in Commons, too. --Emha (talk) 08:50, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support I'm of the same opinion. --Sir James (talk) 20:38, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Question: is there any reason for a German category name? Category names are usually English: "Canal tunnel in Weilburg", or similar. --rimshottalk 07:30, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
No; I think, it could be also named in english language. Greets --Sir James (talk) 08:22, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Category:Inscenizacja_bitwy_polsko-szwedzkiej_o_Warszawę_z_1656[edit]

Category name should be in English, per Commons:Language policy cmadler (talk) 13:32, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Google translate gives the category name as "The staging of the Polish-Swedish battle for Warsaw in 1656". cmadler (talk) 13:37, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
I propose to call "Events in Skaryszewski Park" - Ala z talk 15:12, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
What about "Battle of Warsaw (1656) reenactments"? This follows the name of the English Wikipedia article, w:Battle of Warsaw (1656), and the naming convention that appears to be in use for historical reenactments. cmadler (talk) 15:39, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Category:Spitzer_space_telescope_(NASA_images)[edit]

Some of the images in this category here appear to claim public domain status, but fail to link to the correct image policy. Caltech's image policy changed between 2004 December when [1] appeared to forbif commercial use without obtaining a release form, and 2005 July (here) which became more relaxed as long as the credit line contained no organisations " other than Caltech, JPL, or NASA". I have already nominated two Spitzer images that originated before 2004 December, or that had an extra copyright holder in the credit line. This category needs a clear notice to clarify the change and the importance of checking the original image, the image use policy then in effect and the correct credit line. 84user (talk) 16:06, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Links to nominations I mentioned above: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Perseus' Stellar Neighbors.jpg and Commons:Deletion requests/File:SIRTF ir 1.jpg. -84user (talk) 16:15, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

I have opened a discussion at Commons:Village pump/Copyright#NASA JPL Caltech Spitzer policy. -84user (talk) 19:30, 21 July 2011 (UTC)


Non-admin closure. This request is from 2011 and generated no discussion. However, all linked cases resulted in a Keep, with one garnering a comment from someone who works in the Spitzer program, explaining the situation. I believe it is safe to close this request as no action taken. Huntster (t @ c) 18:45, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
