Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Dqfn13!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Attend the award ceremony of the Dutch Wiki Loves Monuments 2011[edit]

Logo Wiki Loves Monuments 2011 English | Nederlands | +/−

Dear Dqfn13,

We've already thanked you for your contribution to the Wiki Loves monuments photo contest. But with a contest, there are prizes to win!

The award ceremony will be held in Utrecht on Saturday the 5th of November, at the end of the Dutch Wikimedia Conference at Media Plaza, held the same day. Media Plaza is located next to the Central Station in Utrecht, in the middle of the shopping mall.
Admittance is free from 3pm onwards, just in time to catch the last few presentations at the WCN. Off course you can join us for the full day conference as well and enjoy a day full of information on wiki's and cultural heritage. After the ceremony, our location sponsor generously offers a free drink to everyone!

Remember: in order to make a chance to win, you need a confirmed e-mail address added to your Commons settings.

Kind regards,
the Wiki Loves Monuments team and the Dutch Wikimedia Conference team

Lossy rotation[edit]

Please don't use lossy rotation as you did at File:394 Meeting Street.jpg and File:Sinter-claes-saint-nicolas-dam800.jpg. These files will have to be reverted and rotated the correct way instead. The way to rotate files is to add {{rotate|α}} for clockwise rotation by α degrees. By doing that, a bot will rotate the files the way they're supposed to be rotated. See User talk:Rotatebot#Dubble rotate for the discussion that your lossy rotations have caused. --Stefan4 (talk) 07:42, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I was just acting in good faith. Next time I'll do it the way you've just explained to me. Dqfn13 (talk) 07:53, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Category:Gable stones in the Netherlands[edit]

Ik had de category nog niet toegevoegd omdat er bij mij twijfel was over de Engelse omschrijving van gevelstenen. Het komt op mij vreemd over dat er kennelijk alleen gevelstenen zijn in Nederland en Zweden. Daar geloof ik niet in. Maar al rondkijkende vond ik nog niet hoe de Engelssprekenden die dingen noemen. --Stunteltje (talk) 15:37, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Geeft niet, ik weet eerlijk gezegd ook nergens anders gevelstenen, zelfs in Londen en Brussel heb ik ze niet gezien. Maar ze zijn nu toegevoegd, ik heb het alleen gedaan om je te helpen. Dqfn13 (talk) 17:46, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
Waarvoor mijn dank, no problem. En daarom meldde ik ook de reden van vertraging. Kom ik er nog een keer achter dat er een betere aanduiding is, zet ik alles wel over met Cat-a-lot. --Stunteltje (talk) 19:19, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Netherlands coat of arms[edit]

Do not interfere in something you do not understand. The way I have sorted them, Hens Bolens' two images are together and Sodacan's 10 images are together. The way you and him are edit warring, his images are all over the place. Fry1989 eh? 18:05, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Images are to be sorted on alphabetical order, not in series you've made up. Dqfn13 (talk) 18:07, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
You don't have a clue what you're talking about, this is done all the time! Sodacan's 10 images are a set, they are supposed to be together. Hens Bolens' two images are a set, they should be together. Fry1989 eh? 18:10, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
If Henk (that's with a k) doesn't categorize his coa's as sets. So don't do things you are not supposed to. And don't think I don't know shit about this because I'm here for over 4 years and over 5 years on wikipedia writing about coa's... Dqfn13 (talk) 18:15, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Except that Henk did, so maybe you don't know as much as you think. Fry1989 eh? 19:01, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
He didn't sort them as a serie... Dqfn13 (talk) 19:04, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
No, he just tried to sort them at the top because he and yourself think his are so much superior. I have no problem with them being at the top, bottom, middle or wherever else, but I do have a problem with them being mixed up with Sodacan's works which are a set whether you think so or not. Fry1989 eh? 19:10, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Fine, at least I've stopped the editwar. Also, next time try to think why Henk sorts his files at the top... maybe his are better and do follow the ruled made in the Dutch heraldry, because those rules do have a reason. Dqfn13 (talk) 19:20, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. 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

vatican coat of arms[edit]

Please let's not start a new edit war Face-wink.svg, but that coat of arms is not real, that shield is totally invented --Gambo7 (talk) 09:46, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

The shapes of shields are not set, everybody can design their own form of the escution. Dqfn13 (talk) 09:48, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
In classic heraldry maybe, but not when it becomes a registered official national emblem. National emblems are not freely changeable. --Gambo7 (talk) 09:52, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
I've written over 400 articles on COA... I've never read anything about the shape begin set or registered... specially not in Italy (including Vatican City and San Marino). Dqfn13 (talk) 09:55, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Find a proof that national emblems can have different shapes and we are ok --Gambo7 (talk) 09:57, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Here a pointed escution and here a rounded shield. And to make it complete this one has a flat underside with a point. I know for sure that one was even placed on official buildings like the Koninklijke Nederlandse Munt (Royal Dutch Mint). Dqfn13 (talk) 10:03, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
I also found an oval shaped one used on the gates of one of the royal palaces in The Hague... the royal crest is the same as the national crest. Dqfn13 (talk) 10:07, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Those are royal emblems and are subject to the usual free heraldic changes.
The Fundamental Law of Vatican City says that the emblem has to be according to the model pictured in it. I'll post in the talk page of the file so it can be openly discussed by those who would like to intervene. --Gambo7 (talk) 10:14, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
These so called royal emblems are also the coat of arms of the country... it happens to be one and the same. But show me the law of Vatican City and I'll stop talkig about that perticular one. Dqfn13 (talk) 10:20, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
I posted on the TP of the file --Gambo7 (talk) 10:54, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
I've seen it, I'm at my work, so I can't react to eleborate. Als my Italian and knowladge of the Italian/Vatican laws are too slim. I've read the translations and I can't realy see anyting saying the shape of the escution should be like shown. This is my last reaction for now, I'll react from 6pm and later (so in about 6 hours from now). Dqfn13 (talk) 10:57, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Over Commons:Deletion requests/File:Royal Standard of the Kingdom of France.svg[edit]

De overlapping gebeurt in beide bestanden (kijk naar de middelste boog van de Ssolbergj-versie), en ook in de bronbestanden. Het geheel is een vlag, dat zulke reguleringen jammer genoeg niet eens kent (er zijn hoogstens wat ontwerpprincipes die tegenwoordig aangenomen worden). Zelfs in de heraldiek worden die reguleringen niet zelden genegeerd. Zonder overlapping een geornamenteerd wapen plaatsen op een lelieveld lijkt me niet mogelijk zonder het patroon te verstoren, wat natuurlijk aantoont hoe een onzinnig concept deze vlag in het algemeen is. Het plaatsen van een wapen met externe ornamenten op een veld is sowieso al een bedenkelijke praktijk. Een banier met het heraldisch correcte, en vanop afstand zichtbare Franse wapen, had een veel betere keuze geweest. Als encyclopedisch project dienen we echter het jammerlijke bestaan van zulke vlaggen te erkennen, zoals we ook doen met de vreselijk beladen kerkelijke heraldiek die wijlen aartsbisschop Bruno Heim zo terecht bekritiseerde. Lemmens, Tom (talk) 20:34, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Ik zie dat er ook overleg is gestart bij Natuur12, zullen we daar verder overleggen, om de boel centraal te houden? Dqfn13 (talk) 21:06, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:DEU Stadtlohn COA.svg[edit]

Hi there - after we sorted out the problems regarding proper licensing of this file, I would like to ask you to withdraw the DR. --Maxxl2 - talk 11:47, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Maxx12, I won't take back the request as the first and third versions are still illegal and should be deleted. Dqfn13 (talk) 11:53, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Please be informed that it is technically impossible on commons to delete former uploads as this limitation is to keep proper record of the overall development. A deletion request applies only to the present file. --Maxxl2 - talk 12:10, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Then the entire file should be deleted and the current version reupoaded. Dqfn13 (talk) 12:12, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
As I am only third party and not involved, I'll wait for the final decision of the admins. AFAIK the decision will be a keep as good faith will be asumed. I just wanted to settle a mutual, friendly agreement. What a bummer. --Maxxl2 - talk 12:25, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Good faith while it is obvious illegal to recreate that seal? Dqfn13 (talk) 12:27, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
It is not illegal to create and store a seal of German governmental authorities on commons. As you see Category:Seals_of_Cologne here, commons keeps thousands of German seals in various formats. There is no problem or conflict with any regulations as far as the proper license template:PD-Seal-Germany is enabled. --Maxxl2 - talk 12:57, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
You clearly haven't read the site of Stadtlohn. They use it as logo, and logos are protected. Dqfn13 (talk) 12:59, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Wir brauchen beide dem Umweg über die Englische Sprache nicht. Als 1/4-Westfriese verstehe ich deine Sprache so gut, wie meine geliebte Großmutter (geboren in Leeuwarden)) es mich lehren konnte. :)

Auf der ganzen Website steht nirgendwo das Wort Logo nur Wappen, Fahne, Siegel in Bezug auf das Stadtwappen. Es handelt sich eindeutig nur um das Wappenschild, das seit 1909 in der unveränderten Blasonierung hier wiedergegeben wird. --Maxxl2 - talk 13:14, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

The Westfries you are talking about is Frysk, which I do not speak as I am from North Holland. I am from West-Friesland. The site of Stadtlohn talks about the official coat of arms and the one they use now... the last one is clearly being used as a logo. It is even called the daily coat of arms. Maybe you should ask the city if it is the official coat of arms or the logo. Dqfn13 (talk) 13:36, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Affected:


Yours sincerely, Vera (talk) 15:31, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

[1][edit]

It wasn't a matter of interest or not, but whether or not I wanted to help you. I was trying to decide, and forgot about your offer before I was able to answer. And while I can appreciate your attempt to send out an olive branch, I really want you to understand why I was hesitant.

Your colleagues drove me off of the Dutch Wikipedia for the crime of trying to contribute, using a rule that exists no-where else on Wikimedia. A rule so archaic that practically any edit which changes an article can be interpreted as going against the wishes of the original creator and therefore must be reverted. I know you have said that is an oversimplification, but I have to disagree and allow me to give you an example. File:Royal Standard of Belgium (1993–2013).svg is superior to File:Personal Standard of King Albert II of Belgium.svg in virtually every way, and even more important it is part of an identical set of Belgian royal standards which File:Personal Standard of King Albert II of Belgium.svg does not match. And yet, it is still used on this gallery with the other 4 files that all share a common design and this file does not. There should be no controversy about all 5 files matching, and nobody can even give a real reason against it, so instead they used that rule to revert me without cause and threaten me with blocks. As I attempted to point out on my talk page as well, this rule would make it impossible for me to improve and expand other articles where nobody can give any real reason against my contributions but did so anyway just to harass me, most likely because of nationalistic and linguistic motivation. You were part of that, and what I can not describe as anything less than a "gang" forced me to request my own user account be blocked on the Dutch Wikipedia giving me no possible alternative to contribute there.

I have tried to explain this to you before and you brush it off every time saying I just don't understand BTNI properly. Until you can understand what it feels like to be bullied off of a Wiki when you did nothing wrong and had the best possible intentions by users who are abusing a rule just to revert edits on sight whether or not they were positive, you cannot understand my hesitation to want to help you with anything. I don't expect you to agree, but please try and look at it from my side: Having all of your edits undone (even ones that were later reverted back to when it was decided they were positive) immediately, and users telling you that you don't belong there based on what languages you speak. Please just try to imagine that.

In any case, I can not directly extract these signs but I will see what I can do to construct them myself. Fry1989 eh? 01:34, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for taking the efford of creating the files from scratch, I realy appreciate it. I just had a look at the wiki page and they are still not placed there, so probably also not created yet.
I understand your hessitation, I would feel the same. Adding new information is not BTNI, so after creating the files you could add them... except you are blocked untill June next year. You can give me a heads up and I'll add the files.
I'm not going to discuss it all over. Okay, I'll summerice it for the last time: BTNI is about making small eddits who do not add information but only change the "looks", such as files who don't have to be changed unless they are clearly wrong. The differences between the two royal standards are only visually, changing one for the other would be BTNI. On nlwiki it is about correct informtion, not about having the same looks or using one set. In case of the road signs: they'll add new information so BTNI won't be even close. In case of quenstions about the road signs... just ask. Dqfn13 (talk) 08:47, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

---

I will upload the others soon. I will not be able to create L20 and L21 unless I can find the needed SVG elements, but the rest of them should turn out ok. Fry1989 eh? 03:38, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I have placed the two files already. Dqfn13 (talk) 14:45, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Here are the others. Fry1989 eh? 20:57, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much, I realy appreciate it. Dqfn13 (talk) 21:13, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
If you have any future requests, I will certainly do them for you if I can. I wish I could make the last two but I can't find the elements I need so you will need to request a more experienced user create them. Fry1989 eh? 21:46, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I don't expect any new roadsigns soon, but you'll be the first to know if I need any. Dqfn13 (talk) 22:11, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Here are two more I have created. Fry1989 eh? 20:12, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Added the one with only Douane (customs in English). Dqfn13 (talk) 20:26, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Vraagje[edit]

Hallo Dqfn13, ik ben de laatste tijd niet meer zo actief op Commons maar heb recent een afbeelding genomineerd voor verwijdering en toen gebeurde dit. Het lijkt me niet dat een anoniem kan besluiten dat een nominatie wordt afgewezen. Jij lijkt wat actiever op Commons, weet jij wat ik hier mee kan doen? - Robotje (talk) 07:08, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Hoi Robotje, ook hier is dat alleen aan de moderatoren om een dergelijk besluit te nemen. Jcb heeft het dan ook teruggedraaid. Dqfn13 (talk) 08:21, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
Beide bedankt. - Robotje (talk) 12:16, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

verkeerscode and wegenforum[edit]

There are many old Dutch signs here, if you know someone who can make them. I offered them to Bouwe Brouwer but they just ignored me. Fry1989 eh? 18:23, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Well... I know Archmedus (Arch/Henk Boelens) is able to create things from scratch. I don't know which signs there are on the photo's, but not on the list on nlwiki, maybe if you pin point them to me I can ask Arch. Or you show how brave you are and ask yourself, he is here to improve the encyclopedia, so he might be cooperative. Dqfn13 (talk) 08:49, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
