Species categories[edit]

Hi, please do not put images into species categories if they are already on a species page. Please read this discussion. -- aka 08:11, 8 July 2007 (UTC)


I am creating gallery articles for this species and placing them in the higher order Category:Agrimonia and removing the now duplicate image in the Category. Some believe there should be images in both but I believe it makes for a cleaner looking page. This is just to let you know what I am doing in case you want to put them back. Just your Britton & Brown scanx actually. WayneRay (talk) 18:19, 2 July 2008 (UTC)WayneRay


Yeah, we're pretty sure it is Solidago rugosa which seems to be goldenrod. I asked my dad about it and he says it's goldenrod, too. He took some forestry classes in college and he really likes plants. Dincher (talk) 16:43, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Category:Maianthemum racemosum[edit]

Thank you.[1] Walter Siegmund (talk) 04:36, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Category:Historic American Engineering Record[edit]

Hi Choess, thank you for your help in categorization of historic landmarks. Please do not add this category manually to the image. The Category:Historic American Engineering Record is a source and license category for images using the {{HAER}} license only. Myself im only working on quality in this single category, but i remember Category:National Register of Historic Places by state and subcategories for topic categorization. The HAER category is only for images from the LOC/HAER. --Martin H. (talk) 10:11, 4 April 2009 (UTC)


Hi, well, I do not understand what a serpentine barren is, perhaps because English is not my native language. Does this mean that this flower (almost) only grows on a soil that is made of the mineral called "serpentine" ? If so, well, maybe it would be ok to put it back in the category serpentine. But, as you may see, the content of this category is images of the mineral serpentine, or of objects made of it.

So, at the end of the day, it's up to you..

Yours, Frédéric (talk) 19:18, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Former train stations[edit]

If you look at the current parent categories Category:Former train stations and Category:Disused train stations, "Former" implies a change in function while "Disused" implies abandoned. Also, I wanted to match other "Former (buildings)" categories since I only see "Disused" for trains stations and I'm not sure why. Hope that explains it and perhaps there needs to be some changes of categories for images of buildings. Xnatedawgx (talk) 02:12, 31 August 2010 (UTC)


I really like your work on commons: sorting all these pictures is a tedious but vital work (it is what I also do ;-))
About this modification, don't you feel that it would be better to provide a new {{Genera}} entry with your source as source= or ref=.
What you did here is change the content of Smith et al. 2006 which is obviously not post-2006 ;-).

Pittsburgh trolleys[edit]

Thanks for categorising the Pittsburgh trolley photos. I came back today to do the work to find you had done it all already :) Scillystuff (talk) 20:14, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

categorizing minerals as mines?[edit]

I'm not sure this is a good idea: see,_central_Pitkin_County,_west-central_Colorado,_USA.jpg

Wouldn't it be better to make a Category:Minerals of the_Mollie_Gibson_Mine instead? --Pete Tillman (talk) 21:11, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

HABS housekeeping[edit]

Hi, looking at your change here, I suspect that the housekeeping routine I'm running might restore the geocoordinates, and possibly other stuff. I could add your account name as an exception, i.e. any file you have edited should not be changed again, but this might lead to good changes being missed.

I'm leaving it for the moment. If you see changes that make images worse, please leave a note on my talk page and I'll probably go ahead and make your touched files exempt from future housekeeping (though I could also skip files based on the particular edit comment left on the file history).

Note, after the full HABS uploads are complete (possibly a couple more weeks to go), there will probably be final checks for a few days, then there should be no more systematic housekeeping stuff going on. Thanks -- (talk) 13:07, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

I'll just stop and wait for the housekeeping to finish running next month or whenever. I think there are some I've touched that haven't been geotagged yet and hence are missing whatever other metadata (related names, etc.) you're putting in, so go ahead and I'll figure out how to deal with these when I'm done. Choess (talk) 13:11, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I've just added an exception to geocoordinate additions. If the file version history contains the word "inaccurate" in the comments, then adding or correcting geocoordinates will be skipped; this is not specific to any account name. Other checks/improvements would not be affected. So if you see any geocoordinates that are badly wrong, please do just go ahead an improve them, just remember to use the key word "inaccurate" somewhere in your edit comment.
