Een cadeau voor onze nieuwe adminstrator van je collega's

Effeietsanders, gefeliciteerd! Je hebt nu administratorrechten op Commons. Neem een moment om Commons:Administrators te lezen en plaats gerelateerde pagina's op je volglijst (vooral Commons:Administrators' noticeboard en Commons:Deletion requests), voor je in verwijderen, beveiligen, blokkeren of wijzigen in beveiligde pagina's duikt. De meerderheid van de acties van administratoren kunnen ongedaan worden gemaakt door andere administratoren, behalve het samenvoegen van bewerkingsgeschiedenissen, die dus met bijzondere zorg behandeld moeten worden.

Neem eens een kijkje op het IRC-kanaal: #wikimedia-commons op irc.freenode.net.

Zie de Moderatorenhandleiding (Engels). En check of voeg je zelf toe aan List of administrators en de gerelateerde lijsten op taal en datum.

@Effeietsanders. Please take a look at this. I was forgotten administrators can do this by themselves. Trijnstel (talk) 15:03, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

@Trijnstel: Why exactly remove a redundant right? Maybe one day I need it again, until that day it is not in the way (at least not for me). but maybe I'm just missing something?
@Mathonius thanks :) Effeietsanders (talk) 18:01, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Because you don't need it at the moment and you may be an admin for years on this project. But of course it's up to you; I just think it's useless. ;-) Trijnstel (talk) 11:10, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Btw, if you lose the adminbit for inactivity, you won't need the patroller right too anymore. And if you request the removal yourself or otherwise lose it, you could always request the right back. Trijnstel (talk) 12:16, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

De-adminship warning[edit]

Dear Effeietsanders. I am writing to you to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2011 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you a×pdeHello! 16:52, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi,
This seems a bit premature, considering that my admin rights have not even been granted for six months. I assume this is a mistake? Effeietsanders (talk) 20:20, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
Premature, perhaps, but if you pro-rate your seven weeks as an Admin and the one action you have taken, you are still under the required activity level. Rather than our spending a lot of time discussing the question, why don't you just sign the list cited above and then do some Admin work in the next six months. Regards,      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:40, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
Because I think that if you are scaring people with this kind of messages, you should at least limit yourself to the cases which the procedure is meant for. Signing would imply me agreeing that I would fall under the said procedures already. I'm sorry if you're disappointed with my inactivity, but as stated in my application, my main use for this tool would be to do unlogged admin actions (i.e. viewing deleted images), for which purpose I already used my privileges several times so far. Effeietsanders (talk) 12:52, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
PS: of course i'm flattered that I'm being followed so carefully and that you all are worried about my activity level - I can only take that as a compliment obviously :) So for those who are concerned about me: yes, I have been busy with other stuff lately (Wikimania and all) and will be in the future too I hope. I will never become a really overactive admin though. Effeietsanders (talk) 12:55, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
I'm not the person doing the de-adminship actions -- I simply made the suggestion because we all have many better things to do than to spend time arguing over whether you should pro-rate a beginning Admin's time when determining whether he or she should continue as an Admin.
As for following you so closely, I automatically watchlist all pages I edit and remove them only when they show up again, so you were on my list from my "Welcome" note above. Axpde's note above is purely automatic.
     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 13:20, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
I know you didn't place the notice above - but I did feel it necessary to explain myself to you. Especially because it is an automated process I found it as a useful suggestion, because automated processes can be adjusted accordingly.
And too bad that you're not following me closely - I was just getting excited about all the good care given! ;-) (my remark about it was of course ironical and not meant as criticism) Effeietsanders (talk) 13:30, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
The tool that Axpde uses does not show when the 250+ Admins became Admins -- it just shows the number of Admin actions they have made in the last 15,768,000 seconds (=182.5 days or about six months). So it would take significant additional manual research to determine whether the 29 people with fewer than 5 edits are new Admins.
I do actually continue to watch "interesting" talk pages -- maybe this will become one? ;-)      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 13:51, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Oops, sorry, mea culpa. I checked each admin manually, but somehow I must have been blind or something alike. Please forgive me :-} a×pdeHello! 15:02, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

No problem, mistakes happen :) Thanks for the effort of checking though! Effeietsanders (talk) 15:48, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Anúncio[edit]

Wiki Loves Monuments 2011 Caro Effeietsanders, já estamos na recta final do Wiki Loves Monuments 2011!

A partir de hoje, a organização do Wiki Loves Monuments alargou o âmbito do concurso de cerca 5000 monumentos (classificados/protegidos) para cerca de 30000, fruto da parceria com o SIPA - Sistema de Informação para o Património Arquitectónico. A densidade de monumentos perto de si agora é bastante superior, pelo que recomendamos que saia de casa sempre com a máquina pois é bem possível cruzar-se com vários imóveis válidos para o concurso. Procure na lista quais calham em caminho!

Para mais informações, regulamento e ferramentas de ajuda, consulte o site oficial em http://www.wikilovesmonuments.org.pt

re: WLM super uploader[edit]

Hi, i've finally uploaded 809 pictures from my region - like mill you paste into my talk page ;-) Dąbrówka Wlkp - Pałac

WLM nog?[edit]

Hoi Effe, Ik weet niet of het nog zin heeft, maar het zou misschien goed zijn als deze gebruiker nog wordt aangemoedigd meer dan één van de foto's die hij in september geupload heeft in te zenden voor WLM. Hij hoeft alleen nog het wedstrijdsjabloon te plakken. Maar misschien is het te laat? Groet, Lymantria (talk) 15:57, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Hoi Lymantria,
Helaas, als de sjablonen nu nog niet zijn toegevoegd is het te laat - de jury is al begonnen met haar werk. Anders zou het zeker een goed idee zijn geweest. Effeietsanders (talk) 13:31, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Jammer, was ik al bang voor. Groet, Lymantria (talk) 08:27, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

File:Participating countries WLM2011.svg[edit]

Hello! Can you, please, remove Kosovo from this map per this arguments. I would do it my self, but i dont know how to edit SVG file. Or, on the other side, can you teach me anyway how to edit SVG file, and not to turn in in PNG? :) Thanks. --WhiteWriter speaks 14:39, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

I used the then available version of the European map. Please dont involve Wiki Loves Monuments in your political disagreements and leave this map alone. No country in the Balkan was participating so it is just background and not important. Let it be. Just have your discussion at the general map. Effeietsanders (talk) 14:46, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
By having Kosovo on Wiki Loves Monuments map, you used that map as propaganda tool for Kosovo independence. As it is only background, i would ask from you to remove it anyway, and keep it as it was, in the original version, before political activist from Kosovo asked from you to add it. Also, those are not mine disagreement, but ours, as you added Kosovo in this map. and not me. Why you didnt tell him then that it is not important? Please, remove it, and keep this map free of political connotations. Also, per COM:OVERWRITE, adding Kosovo is controversial and questionable, overwrite file with questionable data is not quite welcomed. Kosovo should be removed from this, and new map, with Kosovo should be created. What do you say? Or, at the very end, join discussion on talk page, and we will agree... --WhiteWriter speaks 14:52, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
It was mainly practical, because I had to use the svg map available at the time. I surely brought up the general question (after looking at the general map page history), but didn't take a strong position myself and still don't. Right now it is quite simple: one group of people considers it to be political if you add the border between Serbia and Kosovo, and one group considers it political if you remove that border. Right now we simply follow the general European map of Commons. I suggest you to focus on the general discussion and if that leads to consensus, we can see again. Right now I see no reason for action for the WLM map, on the contrary. Effeietsanders (talk) 15:06, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
I agree. We do follow general map of Europe. That map does not contain Kosovo. But ok, we will wait a bit, and talk later. No rush anyway. Aaand, you still need to teach me to edit SVG... :) :) --WhiteWriter speaks 15:26, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

"- WLM. uploar too late"[edit]

Thanks for check upload date for WLM files! I revert some of your edits, for the cases of re-uploading files that are uploaded during the WLM period, but was replaced by other files (by mistake, our authors was newcomers and poorly dealt with the Upload Wizard). See link to original file in the "Source" field of file description. This explanation of this situation makes it more understandable? If so, I'm too duplicates it for all of these files. --Kaganer (talk) 22:10, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

User:Delaysaid[edit]

Hi, thanks for reverse the attack from the user above, and for blocking him.

Otherwise, I think he is obviously user:Franciscossauro's sockpuppet, who attacked me yesterday in the same way (the very same image). Then, his block should be infinite, shouldn't it?

Best wishes.

Yanguas (talk) 16:16, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

I didn't dig that deep into it to be honest - I doubt that longer blocks will be of much use (will likely just switch accounts) but I have no objection if someone extends the duration. Effeietsanders (talk) 16:17, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Hoi,
Heb het inderdaad voorbij zien komen en de nominator lijkt gelijk te hebben. Bij het verwerken van de upload is panoramavrijheid (of het gebrek daaraam) onvoldoende meegenomen.

Winners in Kenya[edit]

Lodewijk for your information: four winners of WLM Kenya have no monument number

I moved a lot of Kenyas WLM entries to Category:Kenya Monuments without known IDs. This category contains 42 photos of the 97 WLM entries of Kenya. I did not remove the WML2012 template as I thought best to leave that to the organizers and I don't know enough about the monument list in Kenya. HenkvD (talk) 13:53, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Henk! I'll point some Kenyans to this list/category, and ask for their help. Effeietsanders (talk) 13:58, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Argentina and/or other spanish speaking countries[edit]

Lodewijk, as discussed I wil try to work on es:Wikiproyecto:Patrimonio histórico/Fotos de monumentos de Argentina sin usar. Also Chili, Mexico, Columbia and Spain still needs a lot of work. I will see what I can do.
PS. You told me there is a tool to check invalid monument numbers. Where can I find it? HenkvD (talk) 17:40, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Ha, Henk,
Great work - thanks a lot! The trick I used for India to find all incorrect identifiers (there are some mistakes in this tool if the lists are changed after the contest) is this tool. You select the country, and then list "by number of identifiers not in the lists". This makes it easier, because usually each user makes the same type of mistake for all his images (click on view). Then it shows all uploads - the ones in red were not in the lists. If you update the template on the image page - the tool usually updates within 15 minutes. Effeietsanders (talk) 18:13, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Help: no-FoP Italy[edit]

Hi. When you have a moment, could you do me a favor. I decided to occupy my time to list the no-FoP files in Italy. It has been a long and difficult work that needs to be reviewed by administrators. Please, could you check if everything is correct on User:Raoli/Deletion requests/FoP Italy? Thanks! Raoli ✉ (talk) 00:24, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

First of all, thank you that you want to spend your time on improving Commons! Considering deletions is definitely not the most fun thing to do. I see that you have asked the same question to a lot of other admins. I guess it makes more sense to ask someone who knows more about Italian copyright to review your suggestions. My only remark would be that there is currently a Request for Comment ongoing about what jurisdiction should actually be applied. If the outcome of that is that after all, only the US jurisdiction is relevant, the whole FoP-discussion becomes somewhat moot. I'm however not following it closely because of the huge amounts of text so perhaps you'd like to take a look yourself if that would be the case. Effeietsanders (talk) 08:57, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the suggestions. I'm going to request in Commons:Administrators' noticeboard. :) Raoli ✉ (talk) 15:13, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Antactica[edit]

Hello Lodewijk! Is this true or just a joke? I was very surprised. he he --Millars (talk) 21:50, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

It is quite true! At least, I'm trying to let it participate. Of course the fun factor is high and I don't expect a huge contest there, but they have about 300 sites recognized. See w:Antarctic Protected Area. Effeietsanders (talk) 22:02, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Wow! :) --Millars (talk) 16:29, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

4th prize WLM2012[edit]

Hi Effeietsanders,

sorry to disturb you again but I haven't received anything for the 4th prize of WLM2012. You wrote it was a 250€ voucher, have you sent it to me? It's already a long time ago, but I hope you'll find a solution.

Thanks for your concern,

--Selbymay (talk) 14:37, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi,
Apologies for the lack of communication on this! We're having some logistical problems, but I hope we'll be able to finalize this in the coming 2 weeks or so! I'll let you know of course when this happens. Effeietsanders (talk) 15:43, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Bonjour Bachounda, je suis Cristian et avec Lodewijk je fais partie du groupe organisateur de Wiki Loves Monuments international, si tu as besoin d'aide avec les listes de monuments et avec le jury on peut essayer de trouver quelques solution, par exemple pour le jury on a organisé un groupe international. N’hésite pas à nous contacter (en français aussi :-)). -- CristianCantoro (talk) 22:05, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
bonjour Cristian & Lodewijk merci pour votre aide precieuse cela va me permettre de continuer grace a vous - pour le jury j'ai pas encore trouvé si vous pouvez designer un jury por WLM algérie ce serais OK --Bachounda (talk) 16:20, 1 septembre 2013 (UTC)

Images authors[edit]

Hi! I have a small question; is it necessary that authors upload their images by themselves? Or can we. sometimes, upload it for them? --aad_Dira (talk) 20:11, 1 September 2013 (UTC).

For Wiki Loves Monuments, it is necessary that they upload it themselves (with a few exceptions like using Flickr as intermediate). The problem is that if we go into uploading for them, it becomes very very complicated with copyright. You would have to proof that you have their permission, that they are the author etc - that is a very complicated process, and will cost you even more time. With the simplified uploader (if they click on the direct upload button in the monument lists), we think that it should be possible for them to do. You can of course help them with creating an account and uploading, as long as they press the upload button in the end. Hope that helps! If it gives you specific problems, please let me know - maybe other countries had the same problems, and there is already a solution? Effeietsanders (talk) 20:16, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the fast answer! If Flickr can be an intermediate, that largely resolves the problem in many cases. I can understand the problem of copyright proofs as I have faced it several times before myself --aad_Dira (talk) 17:20, 2 September 2013 (UTC).
If you want to use Flickr as an intermediate, you will need to set up a bit of extra infrastructure though. Because they will have to submit the images with the right identifier to a dedicated Flickr group. You could perhaps ask user:Kippelboy or another user from the Catalan team to help you set it up. They did a good job for it for the Catalan areas & Andorra. Effeietsanders (talk) 20:05, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Number of Chinese contributers[edit]

Lodewijk, I noticed the statistics on Chinese contributors mark Chinese characters as ??? (2, 3, 4 or 6 question marks) on here. See for example 65 contribution for user ???? but is in fact 1 for User:水瓶啊靓 and probably many other users. As the names of the images with Chinese characters are also replaced by question marks (like File:??????.JPG) I can't find an example! Replacement of non standard characters is also on others like in France for User:Beata Poznań, which is display as User:Beata Pozna? HenkvD (talk) 05:26, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

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

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

De-adminship[edit]

Dear Lodewijk,
it is with a regret that I inform you that, following our de-adminship policy, you had your administrator rights on Wikimedia Commons removed today by a Wikimedia steward.

I would like to use this opportunity to thank you for your efforts and contributions in making Wikimedia Commons what it is today. If you'll feel like doing so at some point, please feel free to re-apply for adminship at COM:RFA. Again, thanks for all the help you gave us, and (hopefully) see you back soon! odder (talk) 21:08, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Dear Odder,
Thank you for the message. I have been waiting for it for the past 20 minutes or so :) May I suggest that in the future, you put such a message on the talkpage before the changes are made? Because with the new setup of the message warning system, people suddenly get a confusing message that their rights have been changed, without any way of figuring out why (they must search on meta to find out). If there was an explanation on their talkpage already, that would save some searching :) Thanks. Effeietsanders (talk) 21:18, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your contributions and hopefully you will return as an admin soon. Green Giant (talk) 21:32, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
