U-Bahnhöfe[edit]

Hallo FDMS, ich halte die Umbenennung von Category:U-Bahnhof Hohenzollernplatz (München) zu Category:Hohenzollernplatz metro station (Munich) und ebenso Category:U-Bahnhof Hauptbahnhof (München) zu Category:Hauptbahnhof metro station (Munich) für nicht vorteilhaft: Auf Objektebene kann bei Eigennamen ("proper names") ja von der Englisch-Regel abgewichen werden und im konkreten Fall ist beim Hauptbahnhof nun nicht mehr klar, ob es um die S-Bahn-, die U-Bahn- oder die Straßenbahnhaltestelle geht - "Metro" ist kein so eindeutiger Begriff. Außerdem sind die Einträge unter Category:U-Bahn stations in Munich alle ziemlich einheitlich benannt, da jetzt einige umzubenennen, macht es unübersichtlicher, ohne dass ich einen konkreten Nutzen erkennen könnte. Viele Grüße, --Rudolph Buch (talk) 12:31, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Hm, schwieriges Thema :) . Ich habe ehrlich gesagt mit Opposition gerechnet, deshalb habe ich nur zwei kleine Kategorien umbenannt, die zusätzlich noch eine deutsche Begriffsklärung hatten. Ich glaube schon dass metro eindeutig ist, besonders wenn man U-Bahnen anderer Länder auf Commons "besucht". Letzlich gibt es aber im U-Bahn-Bereich allgemein soweit ich weiß keinen Konsens zur Verwendung von metro station vs. U-Bahnhof. Wenn es dich aber bezüglich Eigenname überzeugt: Die MVG selbst spricht auf ihrer englischen Website von "underground stations": http://www.mvg-mobil.de/en/safety.html. Falls nicht kann ich gerne ein CFD starten (und dann auch ggf. einen "kleinen" Konsens akzeptieren). Grüße,    FDMS  4    12:42, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Ja, nicht einfach - auch weil sich offenbar sogar die Native Speaker uneinig sind, wie man das Ding nennt: Aus den USA kenne ich "Metro" eher als Schnellbahnsystem analog zu unseren S-Bahnen (sonst wäre es "Subway") und in UK sagen sie ja wohl "Underground" dazu. Die Münchner selbst, das hast Du ja verlinkt, sprechen von "Underground" und übersetzen die S-Bahn mit "Urban Rail". Dass es relativ viele "Metro"-Kategorien auf Commons gibt, könnte auch daran liegen, dass es häufig die Eigenbezeichnung ist und eben gerade keine Übersetzung. Und wenn die englische Bezeichnung uneindeutig ist, frage ich, ob man nicht gleich besser die deutsche lässt. Aber egal - ich mache da sicher keinen Glaubenskrieg draus: Wichtig wäre mir vor allem, dass es einheitlich bleibt. Das lässt sich mit einer CfD sicher besser klären, dann haben wir entweder breiteren Konsens für den Status quo oder eine sichere Basis für die Umbenennung auch aller anderen Kategorien. --Rudolph Buch (talk) 17:02, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
@Rudolph Buch: Sorry für die Verspätung! Hier ist der CFD: Commons:Categories for discussion/2014/10/Category:U-Bahn stations in Munich. Könntest du noch (weitere) Benutzer pingen, die deiner Meinung nach Interesse an der Diskussion haben könnten?    FDMS  4    21:28, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

For catching the misplaced colon on User:Willscrlt/meta/lang and fixing it for me. Now I need to replicate that to the other wikis. :-) Willscrlt ( Talk | w:en | b:en | meta ) 01:54, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome :) .    FDMS  4    02:01, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Buses in New York City[edit]

I have replied on my talk page. I look forward to your comments on the points I've raised (and no, I genuinely do, that isn't sarcasm!). Skinsmoke (talk) 14:03, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

@Skinsmoke: I appreciate that, but I'm busy at the moment, so please don't expect to receive a reply before 20:00 (UTC). Sorry for that!    FDMS  4    14:09, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Not a problem. Skinsmoke (talk) 14:32, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

RE: your signature[edit]

FDMS4:

Otro castigo. No tienen autoridad, solo tienen poder. Tal vez lo logren y se queden solo ustedes.

Saludos de Girardelli G.Escucho 13:31, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Good to see you removed the image. Not so good to see you still think you are constantly getting punished here.    FDMS  4    14:54, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Por cortesía podría contestar en mi página de discusión.

¿Todavía? ¿Ya tendrían que haber cesado los castigos? ¿Cuando van a parar? o será una eterna persecución.

Girardelli G.Escucho 22:03, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Please keep a discussion on one talkpage (and watch it). I am afraid that whatever I do, you will see it as a "punishment". There is no conspiracy going on here.    FDMS  4    22:59, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Stop harassing me.[edit]

I was here before you and now EXACTLY what the rules say. Show me where it is stated I have to put that awful box in my DP, please. It's clearly indicated where you can find the so called "archive" there. In there you'll find that I promoted 51 of my own pictures to QI level (when I used to care about this broken place) and donated more than 4500 pics (nothing I can do to undo this, unfortunately). And your completely unhelpful automated deletion banners I'm not obligated to read since you yourself canceled your mass deletion proposal. Happily we can always load this pictures somewhere else. I'm on this projetct only to take care of the pictures I'm the author and only because I have no other choice on this. From time to time, some crazy always show up trying to delete something, curiously. José Luiz disc 09:03, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

And for what I can gather reading YOUR talk page, I know exactly the type of user you think you are.... If you come back to my DP to waste more of my time (since you seem to have a lot of time to waste harassing people), I'll undo your edits, so if you think you are right, I recommend you find some sysop to mediate, because I do not have anything else to say to you. And I truly believe I'm not alone in this. José Luiz disc 09:06, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
@Jbribeiro1: Just place a link the archive … if you want to, in <small><small> tags. After a few months or years, your talkpage will likely be full of notices and invitations again, and no one would be able to find the link in the history. I'm not harassing you – to be honest, I'm not quite sure why I had your talkpage on my watchlist in the first place. Please assume good faith, I can assure you that (almost) all of the deletion requests started have been done so with good intentions.    FDMS  4    15:29, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Translated Table test[edit]

I deleted the template and talk there, since it was more to keep track of a specific bug at the time. It is not corresponding to a sandbox and too specific to be a testcase. Esby (talk) 13:07, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Template in File:Autódromo 9 de Julio.svg[edit]

The user Gustavo Girardelli made the old versions of this file by tracing contents from Google maps, which is a copyright violation. So I indicated him to use OpenStreetMap instead, that has a compatible license.

After tracing the map from [1], he added the OpenStreetMap template. I think that the template should not be erased.

Best regards, Alpertron (talk) 13:45, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

@Alpertron: I don't think the racing circuit is © OpenStreetMap (also, it looks different there), if it's copyrightable at all the "architect" of it would be the copyright holder. However, I certainly don't want to cause any additional confusion for Gustavo Girardelli here, so if you told him it's © OpenStreetMap feel free to revert my removal. Although the CC BY-SA 4.0 is non-revocable …    FDMS  4    13:51, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
He knows a lot about car racing in Argentina so some annotations were done by himself. The only thing that he changed was the tracing of the tracks. I do not want that all of his work be erased just because he traced it from Google Maps. Best regards, Alpertron (talk) 14:27, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Erm … that's not how copyright works. Either a work copyrighted by the original author or someone who acquired the copyrights, or it is not copyrighted at all.    FDMS  4    14:36, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
If he traced the racing tracks from Google Maps, even if he adds his own markings, the result is a derivative work from Google Maps, so he is not allowed to upload the SVG file to Commons. But if he traces the tracks from OpenStreetMap (licensed as Open Data Commons Open Database License) and then he adds his own markings, he can license the SVG file as CC BY-SA 4.0 and upload the work here. Best regards, Alpertron (talk) 15:45, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
No … ? The racing circuit itself isn't copyrightable, as there is FOP in Argentina. The drawing is a derivative work of that circuit, no matter what source has been used to draw it. If the racing circuit was actually a Google Maps hoax, derivative works of it would be copyvios. File:U-Bahn Wien.svg wouldn't be a copyvio either even if File:U (4534631571).jpg was used used to draw it.    FDMS  4    01:13, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
