Why are you removing Category:Aircraft at unidentified locations ?[edit]

Without adding an actual location (e.g. airport) category ? e.g. File:Caravelle (5989454901) (2).jpg. regards, Rod in Sydney Rcbutcher (talk) 10:41, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

@Rcbutcher: Hi Rod, the categories in the Category:Unidentified subjects-subtree are maintenance categories, where images are temporarily put until someone can identify whatever was unidentified (I've added the missing {{Unidentified header}} now). If an image contains no clues that could lead to an identification (here: only aircraft and sky visible), there's no chance anybody will ever be able to identify the location. Images like this clutter the maintenance categories, making those images that really could be identified hard to find. Also, for aircraft-in-front-of-sky images the location doesn't really matter – it's a nice-to-know information if we have it, but basically File:Caravelle (5989454901) (2).jpg could have been taken at any airport in the world and still would look the same. Hope that clears things up? --El Grafo (talk) 09:37, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
I disagree. Locations of photographs can be identified from a wide range of factors : photographer, similar photographs, image uploader, date, other information about the image, known activities of the aircraft. No photograph is beyond identification, so it should remain in the Category:Aircraft at unidentified locations. Eventually somebody will locate it. Rcbutcher (talk) 05:26, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
Mmmmh, maybe you're right. I guess I'll just keep my hands off this - there are more important (or fun) things to do. Cheers, --El Grafo (talk) 15:24, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Research_team_editing), I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.
