Cats[edit]

I don't think that there's any real meaningful distinction between Category:Bathing women in art and Category:Bathing females in art (probably one should be merged into the other)... AnonMoos (talk) 18:25, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Females includes girls, Women are adult. Directly in Category:Bathing females in art should only girls (or only a Category:Bathing girls) and groups with women and girls. --Diwas (talk) 18:41, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

That could be a theoretical distinction, but in practice people will not observe it when categorizing the images that they upload, and the distinction is not observed in the images currently in the categories, so it's dubious how useful it actually is... AnonMoos (talk) 08:33, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
The categories can be merged, but a category that named „females ...“ must not be a subcategory of a „women ...“ named parent category. (And a category that named „... in art“ must not be a subcategory of a „... in paintings“ named parent category.) There are some categories with „females“ and some with „women“. Probably a better way is to have only the Category:Females and some subcategories „women ...“ or all categories named „females ...“.

Category:Actresses from Jamaica[edit]

Hello Diwas,

Just noticed that you've created Category:Women of Jamaica and Category:Actresses from Jamaica and populated the later with a couple of female actors. Some questions arise:

  1. Are you aware that in contemporary English the word "actor" has become gender neutral? It is used for both males and females.
  2. More generally, are you sure we should be going down this route? Taken to its logical conclusion it would require that every sub category of people throughout Commons be split along gender lines. To clarify, if we put "Actresses of ..." under "Women of ..." then surely we ought to put "Actors of ..." under "Men of ..." and so on for every profession and other permutation of "People...". What would be the point of that?

For other examples of the trend in English to neuter occupations, Google for "Fire fighters" now used in preference to Fireman/woman or the rather ugly "Fishers" now used in preference to Fisherman/woman.

-Arb. (talk) 15:02, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Hello Arbus Driver. (Sorry for my bad english)

The not existed Category:Actresses from Jamaica was populated first at 11 July. I created it one day later. (http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Grace_Jones&action=history)

But categorizing all people in those categories occupation/gender/country would be a way to make some categories smaller (women, men, women of country, men of country, ...) A really good functionality to show category intersections of several categories including their subcategories would make many categories obsolet. --Diwas (talk) 17:41, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Category:Covers of The Argus[edit]

Given that Seattle's Argus was not normally a magazine—it was a weekly newspaper that put out magazine-like issues now and then, for example at Christmas or for the A-Y-P Exposition—this seems to me to be a rather odd category. - Jmabel ! talk 23:35, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Should the category be renamed or should the covers categorized back in Category:Magazine covers or should the covers categorized in another cover-category or should the cover-categorization of the Argus covers be removed? --Diwas (talk) 23:51, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Feel free to delete/remove/move/rename/recat... --Diwas (talk) 08:07, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

How about renaming as Category:Covers of The Argus (Seattle) special editions, which is what it seems to be? - Jmabel ! talk 01:55, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Yes, that is the right name. Please, rename it. --Diwas (talk) 09:38, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
I put a move request on User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands--Diwas (talk) 12:16, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

hi. please tell me if I chose a good license at this painting of a painter dead in 1907 (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Portrait_of_Sofronie_Miclescu.jpg). Thanks. Cezarika1 (talk) 15:03, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi, sorry but I am really not an expert for licensing. I think it is the right licence, but try to ask on Commons talk:Licensing to be sure. --Diwas (talk) 15:27, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

File:Poil smoke.jpg[edit]

Hello CalistaZ, what is the matter about File:Poil smoke.jpg? I do not see anything. --Diwas (talk) 14:00, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Hello ! I don't know exactly what's wrong with this file, but I see my drawing. This is a shemas of a smoke cat hair. It's strange because, when I log in from my work, I don't see the image too. Others peoples from the "Projet Félins" in the french wikipédia, can also view the image and they put it in different articles. I suppose this is a problem with certain PC or Mac ? CalistaZ (talk) 17:21, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for answering. --Diwas (talk) 17:38, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

file Nomen.jpg[edit]

dear Diwas

The category is very crowded, and the File: Nomen.JPG is only written on the door but I can't see the door. i think the category: doors isn't the appropiate.

if it is a problem you can restore. for me no problem--gixie (talk) 16:21, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

No it is not a problem. I had thought you had not seen the door and the description. But the category is not absolutely appropiate, thats right. --Diwas (talk) 16:34, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

how about creating a category, written on the doors--gixie (talk) 16:31, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Why not. --Diwas (talk) 16:34, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Category:Written doors is ready--gixie (talk) 17:44, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, it's fine. --Diwas (talk) 17:52, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

the link to your personal page on the de.wikipedia is broken--gixie (talk) 18:12, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, now it works--Diwas (talk) 19:03, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Facing left[edit]

Hi. For two of them, it's obviously a mistake (I knew I still had to check if I had made errors, but thanks for pointings them out) For some others, it's actually more ambiguous. To me File:Anton_Graff_Portrait_Konstancja_Rzewuska_1789.jpg is definitely facing left (legs and body). File:Brooklyn Museum - Emily Post - Emil Fuchs - overall.jpg and File:Brooklyn Museum - Mrs. Elizabeth Smith (née Elizabeth Chew) - John Hesselius - overall.jpg are more ambiguous : the body is facing right, but the head is facing right, giving a mixed feeling, but yes, I tend to agree that it's rather fecing right.--Zolo (talk) 21:13, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much. --Diwas (talk) 22:34, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
It's just that I changed the category name from three-quarter view portraits of women to three-quarter painted portraits of women, which is more precise (actually, I could keep the former category and make three-quarter painted portraits of women a subcategory, but I don't know how to move the files, except do it automatically, which would be longish. In a few days, all files will be automatically moved to "three-quarter painted portraits of women" and that will be simpler.--Zolo (talk) 23:40, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanx for explaination. --Diwas (talk) 23:47, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
hallo diwas, kannst du mir eine - möglicherweise sinnvolle - begründung für eine derartige kategorisierung [1] geben? ich jedenfalls - für meinen teil - halte diese atomisierungs-kategorisierung für hochgradig hirnrissig! dontworry (talk) 07:27, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
I highly recommend you to be less rude if you want someone to discuss with you. --Eva K. is evil 13:31, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Einmal das was EvaK meint, sonst kommst beim nächsten mal zum block, zum Zweiten ist dies erwünscht (siehe COM:OVERCAT)--DieBuche (talk) 13:52, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Dontworry, die Kategorie habe ich nicht erfunden, sie besteht bereits seit Monaten und bisher hat sie niemand (zumindest nicht offiziell) infrage gestellt. Atomar ist die Kategorie wohl noch nicht, die Kriterien passen auf tausende Bilder. Da die Kategorie existiert sollte sie auch die passenden Elemente enthalten. Ich denke, bei der Suche von passenden Bildern ist die Kategorie beispielsweise besonders dann hilfreich, wenn mehrere Bilder nebeneinander verwendet werden sollen, die eine ähnliche Ausrichtung aufweisen. Kategorien sind nunmal wesentlich schneller als catscan. Wie ich schon an anderer Stelle geäußert habe, würde ich mir eine technische Lösung wünschen bei der alle vorhandenen Informationen (dann tatsächlich atomar) aller Objekte nur einmal eingegeben werden, und diese dann derart nutzbar sind, dass ein starres Kategoriensystem überflüssig wird. --Diwas (talk) 16:43, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

File mover[edit]

The functionality of the template {{rename}} has recently changed. You might need to clear your cache to see the changes. If successful you should then be able to use the new "Quick adding" link in the template to instruct CommonsDelinker to replace the old name with the new name in all wikis. Please use that every time you rename a file. If further questions arise, feel free to write on my talk page --DieBuche (talk) 10:00, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

{{bad name}}[edit]

A quick note. Generally this template would only be used by the uploader. When it is by another party, it is probably more accurate to use {{duplicate}}. Thx.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:08, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Ersetzung Genitiv durch Dativ[edit]

Hallo Diwas, mein Lexikon sagt "nahe (Dativ), (auch Genitiv)". Wieso biegst Du auf Dativ um, wo Genitiv nicht unrichtig war? Gruß -- KlausFoehl (talk) 11:56, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Hallo, KlausFoehl, dein Lexikon sagt ja Dativ, also ist doch Dativ anscheinend das treffendere, mehrere Lexika, in denen ich nachgeschaut habe, sagten nur Dativ. Darüberhinaus sehe ich Dativ als richtig und sogar logisch an. Wenn man es mal mit Personen betrachten, sagt man ja auch nicht: Sie stand seiner nahe, sondern sie stand ihm nahe. Man fragt: Wem ist es nahe! Fragt man: Wessen ist es nahe? Warum sollten wir den Genitiv wählen? Hätte ich einen Hinweis darauf gesehen, dass der Autor aus einem bestimmten Grund ganz bewusst vom Standard abgewichen wäre, hätte ich es gelassen. Oft schleicht sich aber ein falscher oder wenig treffender Kasus unbewusst ein, weil man es irgendwo gerade so gelesen hat oder weil jemand unbewusst die gleichlautenden Fälle (der) beim Femininum verwechselt hat und dies sich dann beim Maskulinum und Neutrum offenbart. Grüße --Diwas (talk) 00:50, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Re: File:Ul. 3 Maja 24.JPG[edit]

Hi!

I'm not english native speaker too. "3th" is my mistake, it should be "3rd". "3rd May 24 Street" is adress - 3rd May Street, number 24. File name is adress in polish. If something is wrong, please correct or write to me. Flyz1 (talk) 09:44, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

In my opinion "of the first mid-nineteenth" means . I have no idea, which one is correct... Flyz1 (talk) 19:02, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
I guess, "first half of nineteenth century" will be understood by the most people. Street names are names, it is not needed to translate it, but for information the translation is there in brackets, now. I have edited the description to be more clear (in my opinion). --Diwas (talk) 23:02, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Category:Women in not widely known artworks[edit]

Hi, a few years ago you created this category. It isn'n a very helpfull category since a lot of the paintings on wikimedia are not widely known. --Vera (talk) 13:28, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

See Category talk:Women in not widely known artworks and recategorize the artworks well before delete the category. --Diwas (talk) 14:55, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry I used a template with old titles when I uploaded the newer files. I'm going to put your correction.

Thank you--Heralder (talk) 12:55, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Code issues in User:Diwas/commons.js[edit]

Hi Diwas, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:Diwas/commons.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 4 new jshint issues -- the page's status is now having warnings. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
