Geograph files[edit]

Hi, I noticed you've nominated a number of Geograph images for deletion - as you had already uploaded a superior version of same image to Commons directly.

Duplicate files should be marked for speedy deletion with {{duplicate|Better file}}. Easiest thing would be if you can just provide a list of the files, then I can get that sorted.--Nilfanion (talk) 16:15, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Steve Morgan (talk) 18:45, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Regarding File:TPL folibus.jpg and File:TPL tram.jpg, in response to your message on my talk page:

As I see it, your mistake was accepting the claim by the original uploader ("ToBeDaniel") that he was the author of those photos. You say that the files were "appropriately licensed", but I say: No, I do not believe they were appropriately licensed, because I do not believe that ToBeDaniel was actually their author and, in that case, he does not have the legal right to place the photos in the public domain. The Lugano tram system closed in 1959, which I would imagine is before ToBeDaniel was even born, which would mean it is impossible for him to be the author of that tram photo, and that he made a false claim of authorship (or failed to understand what "author" means, for photos uploaded to Wikimedia sites). I tried to place the notice on his talk page, but it didn't function there, probably because it was a Wikipedia user page, not a Commons user page, but I've checked again now, and I found he does have Commons account (even though that is not where he uploaded these two Lugano photos), so I've now placed the notification template there. Anyway, it really doesn't matter whether you followed the proper Wikipedia/Commons process. My tagging/notification was really about the files, not about you. I believe the files are not legally licensed and should be deleted unless either the uploader or you can provide convincing evidence that either (1) he really was the photographer (author) or (2) that the true photographer released the images into the public domain.

File:Territet-Glion 04.JPG commentary[edit]

I saw your commentary to the photo of a funicular in Glion. It would have been better to put it on the discussion page. I don't know if you have been to Glion, if yes, the picture shows the disused railway coming from Territet going to (?). Traumrune (talk) 21:07, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

I didn't make a commentary to the photo. I made an edit comment explaining why I'd removed Category:Funiculars in Switzerland from the image. Basically because the image is not of a funicular. This is a clear case of an error in categorisation which I corrected as best I could. I see no reason to take such a correction to a discussion page.
No, I have never been to Glion and I do not know what this image is actually of, although I do have a suspicion. As I explicitly pointed out in my comment, this is why I have not updated the text or categories to say what the photo is of.
With regard to this being a disused line, well it might be. But the state of the rails suggests otherwise, and none of my reference books make any reference to there being a disused line in either Territet or Glion. -- Chris j wood (talk) 10:45, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Well, next time I go to that part of Switzerland I will make inquiries - if I don't forget ;). I had hoped you know Montreux. Traumrune (talk) 17:02, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Cable cars[edit]

This is also a cable car. Please read this article: Cable car in English wikipedia and look at the pictures. And look also at the pictures in Category:Cable cars. --Enfo (talk) 23:54, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

removed out of context reply; hadn't spotted your other change when I replied
I see that you reverted my removal of Category:Cable cars from the Category:Telefèric del Port cabin which I had created the day before. I did this because the text for Category:Cable cars says Cable cars are rail vehicles that .... I agree that the Cable car article in Wikipedia seems to disagree with that. But this is Commons, not Wikipedia. And categorisation needs more precision than WP articles, because you cannot explain in text. -- Chris j wood (talk) 10:23, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
I categorized according to the images I saw inside the category (go to category Cable cars and look which images are there), because I'm not a native English speaker, I just studied the language. Because I don't know the real use of terms, I searched the more appropriate category, but if it doesn't match, no problem in suppressing it. But now "cable cars" is also a subcategory included in "cableways"... --Enfo (talk) 12:10, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi, thank you for categorizing the Zurich tram photos. May I suggest that you use HotCat to do that? I think this is easier both for you, and for me because I can then see in the edit summary what you changed (I have all my uploads on my watchlist). Again, thanks for your work. darkweasel94 16:16, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
