Hoi Henk. Ik heb mijn antwoord op 'De Kroeg' geplaatst. Mijn Engels is erg goed. Kan ik dat beter gebruiken voor Wikimedia Commons? Fred (overleg) 21:47, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Sister projects[edit]

Hi Henk. Check out the code at Category:Graph theory. Long strings of |||| in the sisterwiki templates are no longer necessary! Cheers, User:dbenbenn 17:44, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

Interwiki Login[edit]

Hallo Henk
I find it a good idea to have an account for all wiki projects instead of one per project. This means, if you create an account at wikicommons this account is automatically valid for all other projects. If you login at one project you are logged in all projects and if you want to contribute to another project no new login is necessary. But this concerns only the account, user page, discussion and contributions remain separated.
How do you find this idea, to whom can I make this proposal, and was there already such an idea or is it already realized?
Hubert22 08:03, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

See bugzilla:57. User:dbenbenn 08:46, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
As you can see there is already such an idea. It will be implemented for sure, probably in a few months. HenkvD 10:29, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Categorisatie[edit]

Beste Henk, de categorisatie hier op Commons is een regelrechte ramp. Als er twee mensen langs elkaar heen werken is dat dan ook geen wonder. Ik heb alleen zojuist wel een wijziging van jou teruuggedraaid en ik wil daar wel even de logica van toelichten:

Ik ben op het moment op de Limburgse Wikipedia alle Nederlandse gemeente aan het aanmaken en daarvoor upload ik alle NL gemeentekaartjes hier. Ik maak dan steeds een artikel aan over die gemeente, en die deel ik vervolgens in bij de categorie van de provincie waar de plaats inligt. Dorpjes in die gemeente krijgen geen eigen lemma of categorie maar worden onder een apart kopje geplaatst. Aparte gemeentes krijgen niet ook nog eens een categorie.
Nou heb ik deze werkwijze ook met Grave (city) gevolgd: ingedeeld in de category:North Brabant, en bij voorkeur geen aparte cat voor de gemeente. Bestaande catgeorieën voor gemeentes of plaatsen moeten m.i. maar verwijderd worden (plaatjes overgebracht naar de gemeentepagina). Jouw wijzigingen gingen daar dus duidelijk tegenin. Nu is mijn wil natuurlijk geen wet, niet op commons en niet op welke Wikipedia dan ook, maar ik ben wel heel erg voor een consequent beleid, zodat pagina's en bestanden hier iets beter te vinden zijn. Commons zucht nog steeds zwaar onder een chaotische indeling. Mvg Caesarion 20:58, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Typo or misspelling[edit]

There is a typographical error resulting in the misspelling (in English) of Wiktionary as Wikitionary... which I discovered using the double application of {{wikiPtmp}} and following the link, the cross application of w:template:Commonstmp (en.wp!!!)... which would not connect to the properly spelled template. Since the computer is doing the spelling, the error sticks out.

I also fixed the link to the proper root category on Category:CommonsRoot which was pointing to a daughter {Fundamental, iirc) category, not the actual root.

Overall, we appear to have been working along similar lines, though I can't imagine why you haven't ported this system yet to en.wp!.

I'm doing so now. See Category:Wikipedia navigation templates (i.e. See on each sister Category:Wikipedia navigation templatesw:Category:Wikipedia navigation templates—viewing only one shows partial progress, both equalized, means that template is ported and documented!) where you can see the progress I'm making in porting the template on CommonsRoot to en.wp CAT:CAT! Where that typo occurs affects my logic of course... It showed up after porting Template:sisterwikis.

My approach was various WikiPcat templates in the following category Category:Navigation templates (Soon to go away)

Note the tagging: WikiPtmp on your templates, and conversely apply Commonstmp instead when logic is ported into en.wp. You must use a noinclude block!!!

Just thought to mention the typo, in case you're around. // FrankB 22:50, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Cameralocatie[edit]

Beste Henk, je voegt een cameralocatie toe aan de door mij gemaakte foto's. Helaas is dat niet altijd de juiste locatie, bijv. hier File:Kerk van Uithuizermeeden.jpg en File:Lopik zendmast in kersttijd.jpg. Als je niet zelf de maker bent kan je je gemakkelijk vergissen. In Uithuizermeeden zat je zelfs niet in de buurt. Naar mijn mening beter geen locatie, dan een verkeerde. Gouwenaar (talk) 20:34, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Excuses voor de foute locatie. Badeankt voor het corrigeren. Niet iedere maker zal zelf de cameralocatie opgeven. Ik tracht om zoveel mogelijke nederlandse locaties aan een foto te koppelen. Vergeef me mocht ik onverhoopt één van jouw fotos opnieuw van een foute locatie voorzien. Draai het dan zonodig terug. HenkvD (talk) 17:32, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Hierbij toch het vriendelijke verzoek om geen locaties toe te voegen als je niet absoluut zeker van je zaak bent. Ik heb er inmiddels meer dan 20 moeten corrigeren, waaronder enkele hele grote missers o.a. File:Nije Hemelriek Gasselte.jpg‎, File:De Emmerdennen.jpg‎, File:Amsterdamsche Veld Bargerveen1.jpg, File:Amsterdamsche Veld Bargerveen2.jpg‎, File:Meerstalblok Bargerveen2.jpg, File:Scholtenskanaal.jpg, File:Verlengde Hoogeveensche Vaart bij Zwartemeer.jpg‎, File:Mantingerzand.jpg, File:Oosterbos.jpg en File:Drentsche Aa bij de Witte molen.jpg. Gouwenaar (talk) 18:36, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Nogmaals mijn excuses en bedankt voor het corrigeren. Ik zal me beperken, of mogelijk dat ik me voorlopig geheel onthoud van het toevoegen van camera locaties, en me richt op iets anders.PS. Natuurfoto's zijn bijzonder moeilijk te voorzien van een exacte locatie. Zou jij je eigen foto's misschien kunnen voorzien van een locatie? HenkvD (talk) 17:52, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia growth model[edit]

Hi, thanks for maintaining the nice Wikipedia growth statistics!

However, the growth model you are using for extrapolation does not seem to fit the data very well. I see no theoretical reason to assume that the rate of increase should follow a Gaussian over time; and the plots seem to show that it doesn't. What I see in File:EnwikipediaArtLog.PNG and File:Enwikipediagrowth.PNG is several distinct periods, each with its own regime. Let S(t) be the total number of articles, S'(t) the number of new articles per month. Then:

  • P1: before fall/2002: quite complicated (natural, given the small size)
  • P2: fall/2002 to mid/2006: S'(t) is a rising exponential A exp(B t), with B > 0 and one broad yearly peak roughly march-nov
  • P3: mid/2006 to present: S'(t) is a falling linear function, C - Dt with D > 0, with TWO yearly peaks, each in mid-semester.

To me it is clear that something changed in 2006 that (a) caused S' to switch from an exponential increase to a steady decline, and (b) changed the yearly pattern from one to two peaks. This discontinuity seems quite clear also in File:Enwikipediagrowthder.PNG.

What could that event be? My best guess is that its was the policy of requiring source citations for all contents. This requirement must have changed substantially the body of active editors (from general public to academics, since only they are used to finding and citing sources. Note that academia, unlike the real world, lives on a 6-month cycle). The requirement for source citations also made editing much less enjoyable (I spend much more time looking for sources than actually writing the article. Moreover citations are a pain to type, even if one does not use the {{cite ...}} templates, and make the wiki source almost unreadable for newbies). So it is not surprising that even regular academic editors who ejoyed writing new articles are now getting tired of the game and dropping off, little by little; while readers that would otherwise join the pool of editors are being kept away by the increased complexity of Wikipedia. However, I cannot recall when the policy was instituted; if it wasn't in 2006, then forget it...

Another possible cause for the "P2-P3 catastrphe" may the crackdown on pop music articles. I recall that, in the early days, fans were creating a separate article for each song in each album, even for the most obscure pop bands. At some point Wikipedia decided that one article per band was enough inmost cases, and only really notable albums or songs deserved their own articles. I don't recall when that happened either, and I cannot guess how big the effect may have been.

Anyway, for prediction purposes I would fit a model like S'(t) = E*exp(-F*t)*Y(t mod 12) to the P3 data, where E,F are constants and Y(t) is a seasonal trend factor. From the plots,one cannot tell whether the long-term trend in P3 is linear or a negative exponential, but we may assume that S' will never become negative, and so we may stick to exponential. Then the predicted size will tend to a finite maximum. But I suspect that the value of this maximum will be quite sensitive to the value of F...

All the best,

--Jorge Stolfi (talk) 16:23, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for this comment. I would advise you to add this text on en:Wikipedia talk:Modelling Wikipedia's growth. As for my comment; The above reasons may well be valid. The reasons you give apply to the english wikipedia. Other wikipedia's don't have that strict citation rules, but still follow the same trend. So I would like to see that as more or less inevitable, hence all could fit in one model.
I agree the model does not fit exactly. I would like that you prepare your own prediction. I am happy to include it in my graphs (provided you give me the modelled article counts per month in a spreadsheet or so). HenkvD (talk) 19:07, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Problem with 2005 data[edit]

Hi again, there seems to be a problem with the data between June 2005 and February 2006, as posted in your growth modeling page. That table says that the size of wikipedia at the end of those months was always a multiple of 1000. Indeed at the end of Feb/2006 the size is given as 1000000 exactly. Also for April and May of 2006 the monthly increase is exactly the same (+55858 articles).
Looking at the plot of the monthly increases, those months with rounded figures are clearly anomalous, althouh the overall increase over those 8 months fits the exponential trend. So I would guess that those numbers are corrupted, not just rounded. What do you think?

    year mo       size      increase
    ---- --   --------      --------
    2005 05     591089         35331

    2006 07    1289079         64790

All the best, --Jorge Stolfi (talk) 04:35, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Jorge, the rounded numbers of 2005 were not taken from a csv file from Erik Zachte but from his website which shows only rounded figures like 626 k. If you look at the current statistics for June 2005 it shows 591 k. The value on the statistic site changes every month, because deleted pages are treated like they never were there in the past either. I think that is incorrect. I try to use as much historical values as possible, but for 2005 I do not have good figures. I cannot update these because of the reason mentioned. As for the increase of 55858: I don't have an explation for that, other than it is pure coincindence. HenkvD (talk) 12:31, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Hello, HenkvD!

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.

Country maps[edit]

Hi, although country maps can be interesting, it is not acceptable that the major part of all by country categories are having the major part of the initial screen obscured by such a country map.

So those maps will be collapsable or I will remove them with a bot. Best regards. --Foroa (talk) 21:28, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Copyright on tenwiki map[edit]

Hi Henk, hope you're well. Just a quick question... Is the reason you put File:Map ten.wikipedia.org.png under WMF copyright because it includes "ten.wikipedia.org" in the image? I would love to have that map CC so it can be reused, so if it's okay we should remove the URL mark and just put it in the description instead. I'm also going to update it so it shows the events on the 15th roughly speaking, if that's okay with you. Steven Walling at work 18:20, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

That license seemed approriate. The "ten.wikipedia.org" is not really the reason. It is OK by me to have it changed into any CC licence. HenkvD (talk) 19:29, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Okay, cool. Steven Walling at work 22:02, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorry I was not aware of this (strange) categorisation: all windmils in category:Windmills in Belgium, Category:Windmills in Belgium by location, as well as in several subcategories. I won't destroy any more, and will try to fix the ones I deleted today. HenkvD (talk) 18:08, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

You deserve this barnstar...[edit]

Original Barnstar.png The Original Barnstar
For your awesome and ingenious Countrymap template. TFCforever (talk) 04:22, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

HenkvD,

I absolutely love your Countrymap template: the way that it allows a user to visualize data geographically is just incredible and the fact that each country's locater dot is clickable is even better. This template is one of the coolest things I've ever seen on a Wikimedia site, and I've seen a lot of cool stuff during my time here. I love it so much that I've just added it to a number of sports by country categories, where it really effectively illustrates the way interest and/or the balance of power in each sport changes geographically: for instance, check out how field hockey compares with ice hockey and how baseball compares with cricket. I've never seen this kind of geographic data visualized before coming across your template. It is truly an amazing tool, and one that definitely deserves a barnstar and some attention. Thanks for all your hard work!

Divergence from trend[edit]

It looks like in recent months the Wikipedia statistics are starting to diverge from the trend line. More articles are being added than the function predicts. I expected this to happen eventually...the articles will not level out at 4.4 million when events keep happening in real time. Maybe the line will turn linear. (by User:75.187.207.99)

User:75.187.207.99 (whoever you are), you might be right. I hope so. On File:EnwikipediaGom.PNG the acual line is starting to diverge. On File:EnwikipediagrowthGom.PNG though the trend is still negative. Maybe it will level off at 15.000 (+/- 5.000) new articles a month. HenkvD (talk) 08:27, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Logistic Wikipedia growth model[edit]

Hello, I'm a student and I'm writing a school report about Wikipedia growth models. I'm studying the exponential, logistic and Gompertz models. Can you please tell me the parameters and the equation you used to plot the graphs in the logistic model here (File:Enwikipedialin.PNG)?

Thank you very much! :-) --Pietrodn · talk with me 20:51, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

The function is y(t)=@NORMAL(t,a,b)*c
and the paramters for the 3 functions are
a=71.226385 75.183300 78.692400
b=23.742128 25.061100 26.230800
c=3000000 3500000 4000000
t is the time in months since 1/1/2000 (so 1/1/2010 is t=120.00)
PS @NORMAL(x;[mean];[std];[type]) is the function in my spreadsheet program that calculates the normal distribution function for x.
Type 0 (the default) = Cumulative distribution function.

Hello , If you check with attention the historic this file have been uploaded the 28 september 2012. Best regards--Pixeltoo (talk) 20:06, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry you are right. I reverted my edit. BUT you have overwritten an earlier one (this one). That is why I saw it was of July 2012. HenkvD (talk) 17:54, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hi HenkvD! Why did you remove these categories? Cheers - --Sir James (talk) 15:18, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

This image does not depict the Belfry of Brugge, but mainly the emblem "Beschermd monument", that fits good in the Category:Distinctive emblems for the Protection of Cultural Property. HenkvD (talk) 15:22, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Monumenten met veel foto's[edit]

Hallo Henk,

Ik zag dat je bij Beers alle foto's van de N.H. kerk aan het categoriseren was met de hand. Ik heb het laatste stukje nu met mijn bot gedaan, dat lijkt me handiger (scheelt tijd). Vanaf zo'n 20 foto's is het erg de moeite waard om met een botje de categorisatie en het plaatsen van de rm-tags te doen. Mocht je in het vervolg dergelijke monumenten tegenkomen dan wil ik ze best met de bot verwerken.

Mvg, Basvb (talk) 19:10, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

OK dank je. HenkvD (talk) 19:17, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Zie User:Basvb/RCE voor als je er nog meer tegenkomt. Basvb (talk) 19:27, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Possible Rijksmonumenten cats[edit]

Hallo Henk, mooi dat je cats aanmaakt voor plaatsen waar veel foto's van zijn (en die niet 1 op 1 dezelfde naam hebben in de rijksmonumentenlijsten op nl-wiki). Zou je deze cats aub wel van dezelfde vorm willen laten zijn als alle andere cats, het is handig als deze cats hiddencats zijn. Zie [1] voor de toevoegingen. Mvg, Basvb (talk) 19:51, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Ok, zal ik doen. HenkvD (talk) 19:37, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Rijksmonumentencats[edit]

Hallo Henk,

Je maakt veel rijksmonumentencats aan maar vergeet daarbij iets erg belangrijks, ik was er een paar dagen terug ook mee bezig maar doe wat andere dingetjes, het lijkt me handig als het een beetje uniform is allemaal (en als ik niet alles straks nog na moet lopen achteraf). Bij deze cat heb je geen commonscat op nl-wiki in de lijst gezet. Commonscats zorgen ervoor dat de categorisatiebot de afbeeldingen op de juiste manier categoriseert. Daarnaast ben ik van plan enkel cats aan te maken voor plaatsen die een eigen lijst hebben, andere plaatsen wil ik bij de gemeente gooien (die hebben minder dan 7 monumenten) als er in die andere plaatsen veel foto's zijn komt dat doordat er monumenten met veel foto's zijn. Dan kunnen beter die monumenten een eigen cat krijgen (en niet de hele plaats).

Ik wil overigens nog even wachten met het massaal aanmaken van Rijksmonumenten in XXX cats, totdat alles is geupload, anders ben ik dubbel werk aan het doen. Als alles geupload is ga ik er heel hard mee aan de slag. Tot die tijd hebben andere wel last van hele grote categorieën, iemand zet die nu in [2], daar zitten veel foute namen tussen, dat zal ik ook over 10 dagen wel aanpakken.

Mvg, Basvb (talk) 12:13, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

OK, als jij binnenkort van plan bent met het massaal aanmaken van ontbrekende Rijksmonumenten in XXX cats ga ik ondertussen iets anders doen. HenkvD (talk) 19:01, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Ik begreep dat er werd geworsteld met het hoge aantal plaatscategorieën tussen Special:WantedCategories (dus de niet RM cats). Basvb (talk) 19:15, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Sisterlinks project[edit]

Hi,

I saw User:HenkvD/Sisterproject and I would like to know if this project is yet useful; do you know?

When I see Category:InterProject templates, all the templates are link to not existing pages. Could you explain me what does mean?

Thanks by adavance, and sorry for my English,

Automatik (talk) 16:36, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

1) The sisterlinks on Commons are still used. See for instance Category:CommonsRoot. On the sisterproject (for instance Wiktionary) is it is less used.
2) as for Category:InterProject templates: This is not related to the above project. I don't know that.
3) As Wikidata has started this year and will probably link sister projects as well all of the above could be replaced soon. See meta:Wikidata/Notes/Future. I certainly hope so. HenkvD (talk) 17:45, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer :) Automatik (talk) 19:37, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata diagrams[edit]

Hi there. Regarding File:Wikidata II before.PNG and File:Wikidata II after.PNG, would it be possible for you to provide some sort of key for those diagrams? At present I find it hard to discern what the different symbols (e.g. the shields) mean. Thanks, It Is Me Here t / c 21:01, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

It is very generic. like a coat of arms for a city, region, country. In general a picture of the item, or even more general a claim like the other claims. Different colors mean that the picture is NOT the same. Same for the other claims. Some have claim Aaaaaaa, but others don't. HenkvD (talk) 08:24, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Category:Rijksmonumenten categories to be classified[edit]

Dag. denk je dat er nog iets zal gebeuren met de items in Category:Rijksmonumenten categories to be classified ? Het is er uiterst "rustig". --Foroa (talk) 07:02, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Geen idee. Ik ben zelf even wat anders gaan doen want het werd war eentonig. Mogelijk dat ik het over een paar maanden weer oppak. HenkvD (talk) 18:16, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Idem voor Category:Rijksmonumenten places to be classified

More than 6 months since last updated[edit]

Wondering if you could update this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ActiveWikipedians.PNG Many thanks James Heilman, MD (talk) 11:28, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

I lowered the frequency of update as it does not seem to change much. Not sure when I will update it. Do you have a particular reason for a speedy update? HenkvD (talk) 18:19, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Lijst van gemeentelijke monumenten in Wijdemeren[edit]

Beste Henk,

Zoals je kunt zien heb ik vandaag de Lijst van gemeentelijke monumenten in Wijdemeren gepubliceerd, en ik zie dat jij in die omgeving al foto's hebt gemaakt. Zou jij voor Nederhorst den Berg en Loosdrecht nog kunnen kijken of er al foto's zijn van gemeentelijke monumenten? Ik heb de andere plaatsen binnen de gemeente al gecheckt. --Vera (talk) 17:59, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Actualisation graph average article length[edit]

Hi,

In 2008, you uploaded File:Articlesizelog-nl.PNG. Could you please update this graph by uploading a new version (under a different name)? I'm interested in the results. I hope you still know how you did it back then Face-smile.svg Kind regards, Smile4ever (talk) 17:32, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I described the process at en:User:HenkvD/Articlesize. The data came from stats.wikimedia.org from the sections "Articles that contain at least one internal link and .. characters readable text, disregarding wiki- and html codes, hidden links, etc.; also headers do not count (excl. redirects)". That data is still in the statistics, but not updated anymore. For the NL version up to May 2011. So I can't give you an update. HenkvD (talk) 17:45, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick reply. Could you update it to 2011? :) Undoubtedly, that would be better than what we now have. Kind regards, Smile4ever (talk) 17:48, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Daar moet ik even over nadenken. Hopelijk kan ik mijn spreadsheet nog vinden. HenkvD (talk) 17:52, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Oké! Het zou fijn zijn :) Smile4ever (talk) 18:00, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Groepsschuilplaats versus kazemat[edit]

Hallo Henk, een opmerking n.a.v. deze bewerking. Bij nadere bestudering van dit type bouwwerken lijkt me het verwijderen van de 'air raid shelters'-categorie wel terecht, ze zijn namelijk gebouwd voor grondgevechten. Bij het toevoegen van de 'casemates'-categorie heb ik echter twijfels. Uit het artikel nl:Groepsschuilplaats Type P maak ik op dat er een vrij duidelijk onderscheid is met kazematten; die waren ingericht om er vanuit te schieten. Wellicht biedt Category:Bunkers in the Netherlands soelaas ('bunker' lijkt meer een verzamelterm), of een nieuwe, specifieke categorie. Ideeën? Groet, Apdency (talk) 19:26, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Ik dacht eerst dat Kazematten/Casemates Nederlands/Engels en Bunkers een germanisme. Wat de vertaling van Groepsschuilplaats is weet ik niet. Category:Bunkers lijkt inderdaad meer als verzamelnaam gebruikt te worden. Ik heb dit voor je afbeelding aangepast. HenkvD (talk) 21:14, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
OK, dank. Ik heb trouwens ook heel lang geloofd dat 'bunker' een germanisme was. Maar we hebben het gewoon uit het Engels. Apdency (talk) 15:52, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Monumenten verstopt[edit]

Beste Henk, omdat categorisering er volgens mij toe dient om afbeeldingen vindbaar te maken, vind ik bewerkingen als deze, waarvan jij er heel veel hebt gedaan, niet zo geslaagd. Monumenten zijn op deze manier alleen nog te vinden als je weet dat het een monument is (en bovendien het woord "Rijksmonument" kunt begrijpen). Dat lijkt me niet de bedoeling. De rijksmonumenten-categorie zou een categorie moeten zijn die parallel aan andere bestaat, en niet de schakel tussen plaatsen en bouwwerken in die plaatsen, wat jij ervan maakt. Zou je die acties voorzover mogelijk ongedaan willen maken of in elk geval willen staken? Veel dank! Fransvannes (talk) 18:56, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Frans, ik ben het niet helemaal met je eens. De categegorien van plaatsen en steden zijn volledig vervuild met monumenten, zowel rijksmonumenten als possible rijksmonumenten. Hoe fijnmaziger je categoriseerd hoe moeilijker het soms is een on bepaald object te vinden, maar dat is helaas het gevolg van de gekozen categorisering. Als je van mening bent dat er parallel categorieen moeten bestaan als Churches in plaats etc. ben ik het met je eens, maar als die niet bestaan zal men ze eerst aan moeten maken. HenkvD (talk) 19:08, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Zou je dan, voordat je gebouwen wegstopt in de rijksmonumentencategorie, éérst een Buildings in...-categorie van die plaats willen aanmaken? Ik vind het echt heel gebruikersonvriendelijk dat objecten hier als monument te vinden zijn, of niet. Dat zou een averechts effect van de massale monumenten-uploads zijn (dat we in de monumenten verdrinken, vinden we geloof ik allebei). Fransvannes (talk) 20:46, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Persoonlijk ziet ik geen voordelen om alle afbeeldingen van gebouwen in een categorie Buildings in... te plaatsen. Ik zal die categorieen dan ook niet aanmaken, maar het staat een ieder vrij om dat wel te doen. Bovendien worden die categorien bij lange na niet niet consequent gevuld. Zie bijvoorbeeld 44 files in Category:Buildings in Sneek en ongeveer 150 files van gebouwen in Category:Rijksmonumenten in Sneek. HenkvD (talk) 19:37, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Dat laatste is precies het probleem. Maar goed, als de bereidheid om het op te lossen er niet is, moet het maar blijven bestaan. Fransvannes (talk) 21:00, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Categorization of my photos[edit]

Hi Henk, you moved many of my photos to category:Wikimania 2013 food. I want to inform you that none of the photographed food had been offered on Wikimania, so it was NOT Wikimania food. --Schwäbin (talk) 19:09, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

I see your point, but they should not be moved back to category:Wikimania 2013 either. If you don't mind I will leave them at category:Wikimania 2013 food. Feel free to correct yourself. HenkvD (talk) 21:03, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
I will delete the wikimania cat then. Food of Hong Kong should be sufficient. --Schwäbin (talk) 12:21, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Agreed. HenkvD (talk) 13:55, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
