Permissions and removed categories on "File:לא שווה להיות ביסקסואלית.jpg"[edit]

I'm not sure why you removed these? The poster is a protest poster from the Tel Aviv Pride month radical LGBT campaign, and refers to bisexual oppression. You also put a permissions warning on it even though I clearly stated I own the rights to it... Why? TMagen (talk) 19:11, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I am writing in response to the email notification regarding the violation of the rights to the logo used in IV LO entry. I would like to confirm that I am the author of the school logo used both on the facebook website http://www.facebook.com/pages/4LO/176947745693389 and in the Wikipedia entry that has been recently created by me. Should I obtain a confirmation from the school to make sure the entry is not deleted ? Or maybe there is some other way to confirm that I have actually made it ? I am quite new at this and this is my first Wiki entry, therefore I would like to do it by the book. Looking forward to hearing from you Thank you for your help

Cat modifications[edit]

I think you better stop doing useless category changes. Silesia is a region in Europe.

Unless you are very familiar with the various complex combined category systems as Category:Musical instruments classification, you better don't change them. It took many days of experts to get those categories stable. --Foroa (talk) 05:42, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello. Why change en: to w:? If it’s to make it clearer in code that it is a link to Wikipedia, there is a better way: {{w}}. For example:

Voting templates at FPC[edit]

Hi Cathy,

I changed two of you voting templates at FPC, cf the recognised voting templates. You can express a nuance to your vote using an optional parameter in the voting templates. I.e., {{Support|Weak support}} gives Symbol support vote.svg Weak support, and {{Support|Strong Support}} gives Symbol support vote.svg Strong support. --Slaunger (talk) 18:27, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Your participating in voting[edit]

Dear Cathy,

I can see that you participated in the featured picture voting on Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Steinway & Sons concert grand piano, model D-274, manufactured at Steinway's factory in Hamburg, Germany.png. Fortunately, this beautiful picture became a featured picture because many persons participated in the voting period. The rules says that there has to be at least 7 supporting votes and a ratio of supporting/opposing votes at least 2/1 (a two-thirds majority).[1]

Therfore, I would kindly ask you if you would like to give your vote in this similar voting Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Steinway & Sons upright piano, model K-132, manufactured at Steinway's factory in Hamburg, Germany.png before it ends on 9 May 2012 at 01:58:26 (UTC).

Thanks!

Yours sincerely, --Hereiamfriends (talk) 15:23, 5 May 2012 (UTC).

What are you doing on categories? Please stop it ![edit]

Hi Cathy Richards. What are you doing on categories? What is the sense of your destructive edits? Please stop it! I lost a lot of time to revert many of your wrong edits. Why do you delete inter-wikis? Why do you cancel important mother-categories like here? And please, don't delete at Ancient Roman categories the Category:Ancient Roman categories: this is a very important category for maintenance of these cats, and for the correct assignment of the categories that relate to the world and culture of ancient Rome. Don't do it again! If you don't undestand the sense or the importance of all these categories and the complex system of category-trees of Commons, please let it be, don't make any edits. Otherwise they are to be considered vandalism. Thank you! --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:24, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Gq flag.png[edit]

Don't see how it can be a "Gender symbol" when it doesn't indicate any particular gender... AnonMoos (talk) 18:23, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Creating apparent category inconsistency[edit]

You should either remove all Venus symbols from Category:Female symbols, or leave them all in... AnonMoos (talk) 18:49, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Why are you removing "Category:Female symbols" from only some images in "Category:Venus symbols", but leaving it place for others? I don't understand it, and I doubt whether it's resulting in clearer categorization... AnonMoos (talk) 06:28, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Category:Snake Goddess[edit]

It doesn't make too much sense to add "Wicca" to this category (and Wicca also should not have been in Category:Mother Goddess). Wiccans did not invent neo-pagan Goddess worship, Wiccans do not monopolize neo-pagan Goddess worship, and Wiccans do not define neo-pagan Goddess worship for other groups. At most it can be said that they publicized it (though they must share the honors with Robert Graves, who significantly influenced the concept of the Wiccan Goddess, while Wiccans didn't influence Robert Graves at all). If "Mother Goddess" is de facto a Wiccan category, then its name should be changed to indicate this, because its current name does not indicate Wiccan-specificity. AnonMoos (talk) 13:39, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Why?[edit]

Hi Cathy Richards. Can I know why do you continue to delete the "category Ithyphallic representations" at the Category:Mercurius-Priapus fresco (from Pompeii)? Do you know what it means "ithyphallic"? Thank you for your answer. --DenghiùComm (talk) 23:09, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Why? 2[edit]

And why are you removing neighborhood categories? Beyond My Ken (talk) 19:49, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

If a photo or category is listed in both a general category (say "Manhattan") and a specific category which is entirely included in the general category (say "Kips Bay, Manhattan"), then remove the general category, not the specific one. Also, many categories are not entirely included in another categories: streets, for instance, can pass through many neighborhoods. I've rollback many of your edits of the past couple of days because your deletions were incorrect. Please be more careful in your editing. If you are uncertain about whether to take a cat out or not, leave it in! Beyond My Ken (talk) 20:01, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
You continue to make these kinds of errors. Why did you remove Flagler College from the Henry Flagler category? The school is named after him. I do not think that you are employing good judgment, so I suggest that you stop making category edits before I'm forced to report your editing to an uninvolved admin. Beyond My Ken (talk) 20:07, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
Looking up at your talk page, the majority of the comments there are complaints about your category work. Please take the message there to heart and stop making category edits. Beyond My Ken (talk) 20:12, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Category[edit]

Hi,

You removed the Category:Male human genitals in heraldry from this picture: Coa Italy Family Mocking arms Colleoni.svg These things are a pair of testiles so I think they are male human genitals. You can find a Hungarian article about the mocking arms: [3] Maybe the Google translator can translate it to your language. Bye: Madboy74 (talk) 00:56, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

symbolic doves[edit]

Dear Cathy, pleace take my edit comment into consideration. As you may see, there are three doves depicted. Two of them are a symbol of divine love. The third one? Holy Spirit? Baptism? Pentecostal? ...? Thank you, PigeonIP (talk) 07:57, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Coats of Arms[edit]

Stop removing categories and revert them all now. The two categories are not the same and not equal. Both are required. Revert now or I will escalate this. You made the mess, now clean it up! Kiltpin (talk) 22:15, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Hearts in heraldry ?[edit]

You are doing it again! "(Cat-a-lot: Removing from Category:Hearts in heraldry)" - Why? Yesterday might have been a mistake or a misunderstanding of requirements, but this is vandalism.

Removing from Category:Wikimedia Community Logos[edit]

Możesz wyjaśnić, co spowodowało tę edycję i kilkanaście innych, w których z plików zależnych od File:Wikimedia Community Logo.svg usunęłaś Category:Wikimedia Community Logos? Jeśli chodzi o to, że w nazwie kategorii nie powinno się Nadużywać Wielkich Liter, to wystarczyłoby chyba podmienić jedną kategorię na drugą, a nie usuwać istniejącą… odder (talk) 09:24, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:Social equality[edit]

Not sure why you removed individual quality symbol images from "Category:Social equality", since "Category:Equality symbols" is not a subcategory of "Category:Social equality" (nor would it seem appropriate)... AnonMoos (talk) 00:12, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Sexuality and Reproduction[edit]

Hi. I'm very glad with your participation in the sex-themed categories. I think we both agree on that in actual terms (AKA real life), reproduction --- being a derivative of life cycle --- gives birth to sexuality and not the other way around. Sexuality, being the physiological, social and psychological infrastructure that is in turn materialized in activity(ies) of sex, is in service of the primordial call to reproduce. So the only question is about the specific category directionality - "from cause to result" vs "from result to cause", that Commons should employ to best demonstrate this path for navigational purposes. The way I see it, category trees typically and ideally begin from the "larger" base, i.e. the causes-of-life, and then step gradually across the stations down to "birth" (where it all starts again, hehe), and by this, Category:Reproduction must contain Category:Sexuality, and not be parented by it. See my in changes in these cats and tell me if you see eye to eye with that method or have other insights. Orrlingtalk 20:02, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Porn is art[edit]

Pornography is a (artistic) representation of humans having sex, - not only by movies but most mediae, so I can't see why Category:People having sex in art shoudn't be parent-category for Category:Pornography. In this light, porn films don't need themselves the "People having sex in art"-tag, simply because films are one medium of art within the broader pornography that includes also books, web porn, live shows... = all being arts (as I see it). Please tell if you see things in a different way. Thanks, Orrlingtalk 16:47, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Stop the obsession about red parents please[edit]

Stop creating categories that only include a single item, or omitting them from where they are. Red parents are a most legitimate infrastructure for future categories that may not necessarily have enough content at present when they are added, therefore removing them is wrong - and at the same time, "bluing" them without caring to populate them is also wrong. Orrlingtalk 20:59, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

O.K., but I isn't a very strong obsession. Cathy Richards (talk) 21:12, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

I agree with you that non-existent categories serve very little useful purpose... AnonMoos (talk) 00:26, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Please stop removing the principals of architectural firms[edit]

Perhaps you are not aware that the names you are removing are those of architects who founded or were othewrwise principals of those firms. As such they need to be cross-categorized. The obsession with a single-hierarchy structure is damaging, and makes it harder for people to find things. Life isn't a straight-forward hierarchy, and neither should our categorization be. You can help by stopping these edits. Beyond My Ken (talk) 18:56, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Fellatio in art[edit]

Hi Cathy Richards. To give the Category:Males having sex in art to the Category:Fellatio in art is wrong! "Fellatio" means "oral sex" and can be performed by males and by females. These two sub-categories are in the cat "Fellatio in art". The category "Males having sex in art" ist just given (correctly!) to the category "Males performing fellatio in art‎". So please don't overcat the generic category "Fellatio in art" with the specific category "Males performing fellatio in art‎", because this is wrong, and it's an overcategorization too. Tank you! Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 22:58, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Fur clothing in art[edit]

Thank you for your work. I think, all sorts of fur (clothing) in art should be in the category "Fur garments in art", also if there another upper category (by example, kolinsky in marten)?!

Grazie[edit]

Thanks for assisting at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands. When moving between categories though, I would advise leaving an attribution notice in the edit summary to comply with the CC-BY-SA guidelines as well as note the original authors of a category. Also as part of my routine for moving between categories, I normally create an associated Wikidata item for the category, with an additional qualifier of some sort; you can check the results of that activity here. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 22:44, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hello Cathy, when you've time would you please consider helping standardize the category tree "people of the United States"? If you are interested ask me how to proceed, I've created several maintenance templates for easing the job. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 15:20, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Your Cat-a-lot[edit]

Hi Cathy, because the category Hearts with transparent background is too heavily crowded (at the moment 472 items) I thought to diffuse some groups of files into useful subcategories. I made a note about that into the category.
One suggested action would be to move all files «Valentines-day-hearts-X-alphabet-at-coloring-pages-for-kids-boys-dotcom.svg» into an own subcategory, the Valentine's Day hearts alphabet. To avoid crowding of that subcategory, I established an own subcategory for all the GIF files. This structure seemed useful to me, and it would make subcategories with not more than 40 items.

You recategorized many of these alphabet files, thank you. But at the moment all SVGs are still additionally contained in the main category, and all the GIFs in the higher subcategory instead of the lower one.

I would like to find an agreeable solution, together with you. I am not sure whether Cat-a-lot is the best tool for that, may be you know to request a bot? Let's talk about! sarang사랑 15:43, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

your moves out of Category:WikiProject Scouting logos[edit]

Please move them all back-they are all created as non-copyright facsimiles and visually recognizable substitutes for copyrighted logos we cannot host on Commons. As such they are not the same as "fleur-de-lis in Scouting" and they don't go there. I appreciate your hard work, but there is a reason we put them where we did.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 11:55, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Category:Two males[edit]

Thank you for your recent edits to the categories I created. Do you think the category Category:Two human males, Category:Two human females should be created? I only ask because I found in the category Category:Brothers that there were animal brothers that I didn't expect to find, moved to Category:Two brothers. Then, maybe a Category:Two animal brothers category should be created too? Because two brothers is under the category Category:Two males. What do you think? and thanks for your thoughts :) --Mjrmtg (talk) 22:22, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

United States military ribbon-cutting ceremonies outside the United States[edit]

I noticed that you tagged Category:United States military ribbon-cutting ceremonies outside the United States for speedy, which I guess is my own fault for making it and then going out and doing other things the past couple days without explaining first. But there are 50+, maybe 100+ items in Category:Ribbon-cutting ceremonies to drill down there, which I'll try and get to over the weekend; it's basically all the U.S. military images that I didn't already drill down into Category:United States military ribbon-cutting ceremonies in the United States‎. I've explained further at Category talk:United States military ribbon-cutting ceremonies outside the United States#New category. --Closeapple (talk) 15:35, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Correction: It appears I didn't get all the photos that should go "in the United States" either; probably forgot to check past the 200 file mark when I was doing them. So there are still files from Category:Ribbon-cutting ceremonies to put into both subcategories. --Closeapple (talk) 15:50, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Julie or Vipsania ?[edit]

Hello, can you show me sources about your opinion ? I have seen and take picture myself of the sculpture in the Grand Palais Auguste (I will return one day to see again) and the head is attribued to Julie and also here [[4]] - [[5]] - Thanks for more informations. - Siren-Com (talk) 12:46, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. I see, but why since 2004 the Toulouse museum have not change his mind about this problem. Wainting for more information, I prefer to expose the two way of attribution of the head. I will continue to try to understand better where is the thruth (sorry for my imperfect english) - Siren-Com (talk) 19:32, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Also, where do you get the information that File:-0020 Altes Museum Mädchenkopf anagoria.JPG is Julia head ?

Gender-neutral actor subcategories[edit]

I noticed that you put Category:Not Ready For Prime Time Players in an actress category. Why do we have "Actors by production" and "Actresses by production" separately anyway? I had the same problem with Category:Television actors vs. Category:Television actresses, but I understood that one, so I just left it off as a parent category. Is there any sense at all to actors being split by gender by production? I think there needs to be a gender-neutral actor category structure of some kind, because (1) people who are not thinking about gender are going to drop everyone in "actor"; (2) the current split makes it impossible to properly categorize gender-neutral categories like Category:Not Ready For Prime Time Players because both parent categories make large number of actors and actresses descendant categories of the explicitly-declared wrong gender. If someone were to use {{intersect categories}} on an actress category right now, for example, it might throw all the guys on SNL into another "actress" category because they're only one level removed from being an actress. Has there been any discussion of renaming male-specific categories to "Male actors" instead, so that we at least have a primitive gender-neutral actor structure when the subject requires it? --Closeapple (talk) 23:08, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

This High School Has Closets[edit]

Hi Cathy, I did send the permission. It was emailed on june 17th but I resent it today and placed "As per Cathy" in the subject. Please let me know if I can be of any further help. Thanks.Desaderal (talk) 20:59, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your help with LGBT cats, my brain is a bit overloaded at the moment. I have a lot more related images to upload but no more flags for now I did them all first. HelenOnline 07:04, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

I, too, wish to thank you for assisting with LGBT categories, especially with the newly-uploaded Wiki Loves Pride images. Your help is very much appreciated! --Another Believer (talk) 20:46, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Categories must be in plural ![edit]

Hi Cathy Richards. What you have done here is wrong ! Consider that in Commons the categories must be expressed in the plural form. I will be greatful if you may revert what you have done. Thank you very much. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 08:41, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Murder is a perfectly good uncountable noun, much like, say, architecture. There's absolutely no need to change it to refer to the individual acts instead of the overarching idea.--Prosfilaes (talk) 19:58, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

I think the best thing to do now is that the community of Commons decide. I open a CfD and I copy the discussion above in it. Thank you at all. --DenghiùComm (talk) 22:37, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

LGBT activists categories[edit]

Hi Cathy. The reason for including both Category:LGBT people from South Africa and Category:LGBT activists from South Africa is that the latter is not necessary LGBT people per Category:LGBT activists description and the associated w:en:Category:LGBT rights activists description. I put Category:LGBT activists from South Africa in Category:LGBT people from South Africa by mistake, removed it but I see you have just put it back again. HelenOnline 16:43, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

FYI I responded to your reply on my talk page as it is common practice to keep discussions in one place. HelenOnline 11:58, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Flagging File:DPART Roundel Final Version.png ?[edit]

Cathy Richards,

May i ask why have you nominated our new logo for deletion? Would it not have been pertinent to check that the logo is actually hosted on our website prior to doing so? http://www.dpart.org/

I find it rather perplexing that you would flag a self designed logo for "permission" deletion when it clearly has attribution attached to it. :/

Regardless I have now submitted an email to permissions @ wikicommons, it is just frustrating as I have enough on my plate and then having to take time out to "re-explain" my position to Wiki is highly irregular considering I created the logo and have creative ownership of said item and have allowed it be shared on the public domain. What ever happened to Wikimedia and Wikipedia being the "people" portal?!

Please could you kindly send users a message prior to such edits or flags.

Cheers.

Rastafari symbols[edit]

Hi Cathy. Please explain why you removed Category:Rastafari symbols from Category:Lion of Judah and Category:Star of David (see Wikipedia article on the Rastafari movement). It does not help me learn if I do not know what I did wrong. Please reply here. HelenOnline 06:33, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Images deleted and email send about copyright... can you help me?[edit]

Hi Cathy: Sorry to bother you, but I will like to ask you for advise and help. I add some images into my account and I send the authorization form by email. Some of the pictures were deleted. I receive an email asking for more information (like websites where I use it). I already send this new email with links to different websites (and keeping the reference number of the previous email on the subject), but i didn't receive any reply and I am thinking that may be more images will be deleted if I don't receive an answer soon. We are not a big company or famous photographer, so we don't have official registrations in agencies or anything like that, but we use all the images, that produce ourselves, to show our film work and we never charge anything anywhere. We have different accounts in internet where we showcase the pictures. We send the information on the email and we follow all the instructions that we receive before. Also I cannot upload the images that were deleted previously. Do you think that, after it is clear, there is any way to re-upload it? Can you check for me, if possible, please? Thanks and sorry again for the trouble. All the best. Almost Red Productions.

Could you please explain...[edit]

Could you please explain why you moved Category:Sharon Lewis from a gender neutral parent category to a gender based parent category? If there is a policy or guideline that recommends we should prefer non-gender neutral parent categories I'll follow your example. Otherwise I am going to use the gender neutral names. Geo Swan (talk) 17:31, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the time to reply User talk:Geo Swan. Is there a reason we shouldn't keep the discussion here, where it started?
I didn't see a link, in your reply, to a policy or guideline. All I saw wa an expression of an opinion. As I wrote above, if there is a policy or guideline, I'll yield to it. If there isn't an established convention then we should be having this discussion somewhere more central, where everyone can weigh in. Geo Swan (talk) 19:35, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

I don't know if if there is a policy or guideline. Cathy Richards (talk) 20:43, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Proszę o informację, dlaczego plik który dodałem https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tim_Clark.JPG jest w trakcie usuwania? Dodałem go za zgodą autora, jego autor na moją prośbę wysyłał jeszcze w sierpniu oficjalnego maila do permissions-commons@wikimedia.org z pozwoleniem na jego wykorzystywanie, a mimo to plik jest odrzucany przez Redaktorów. Dlaczego? Co jeszcze powinienem zrobić? Co robię nie tak? Pozdrawiam
