User:Jon Harald Søby/Kartlisens[edit]

Hi. Just want to inform you that I've requested that a bot subst all uses of the above template since personalised license/creator templates should always be substed. /Lokal_Profil 20:37, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

What on earth would be the point of that? The only thing you'll accomplish is makig it 400 times harder to localise these pages' description (e.g. translate). Please don't. Jon Harald Søby 05:11, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
The reason is that personalised licenses are discouraged and after the last discussion on the village pump it was decided that if used they should be substed. The reason for this is that it otherwise becomes impossible to trace any change in licenses etc.. Another reason, the reason why I noticed in the first place, is that one cannot make any sensible edits/changes to the image pages. For instance the map of Lund linked (and was placed in the category of) the swedish municipality Lund, and only by substing the template was it possible to correct this.
If one want's to ad on a translation at a later point it's not that hard to do that using a bot. If you wish to keep track of the images for personal reasons then I'd recomend adding a personalised category to the images (via the template before it's substed). /Lokal_Profil 10:46, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
This isn't intended as a personal template, it is intended as a practical way of unifying the pages for these maps. I will never change the license (AFAIK, I'm not entitled to when I've already released it to the public domain), so that's not an issue. I made some changes to the Lund page, so that is is correct now. I believe that is the only case where this would occur ever. If there are more places, I can change the code so that it is easy to customize. Jon Harald Søby 17:07, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
The problem is twofolded. Firstly even though I trust that you won't change you're license (and I know you can't legaly) if you (or anyone else) changes it in the template then it automatically changes on all the images without it being noticed in the image history. it's for this reason that the decission was taken to always subst personal license templates.
The second less critical problem is that it simply makes any edit to the image pages a lot harder for the less wiki savvy. /Lokal_Profil 23:04, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
Found the Village Pump discussion Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2007Jan#Personal_license_templates /Lokal_Profil 10:15, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, the solution with double templates seems to slove both problems. Do you mind if User:Jon Harald Søby/Kartlisens (but not User:Jon Harald Søby/Kartbeskrivelse) is substed? /Lokal_Profil 22:36, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
Yup, that's the intention. Jon Harald Søby 19:42, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

...and apparently that substing did not happen. There's a problem with categorisation here as well, I've manually substed some Norwegian municipalities where the proper category name was Rana, Norway instead of Rana and such, but still all munic. are stuck in Category:maps of FYLKE along with Elisabethtds .png locatormaps. That leaves categories like Maps of Nordland overcrowded and not very helpful for practical purposes, even after I moved the png maps to Category:PNG Locator maps of municipalities in Nordland using cat-a-lot. Could you consider editing User:Jon Harald Søby/Kartlisens so that these locatormap go into a separate subcat? Finn Rindahl 21:30, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:Distribution-sv.png[edit]

Hi Jon Harald, I see you updated the Swedish language shading the Sami-speaking areas of Lapland as well as the Swedish-speaking parts of Finland. That's better than the previous map, but there remain some points about this map: First of all, Aland is unilingually Swedish, so there's no need to mark it in shaded coulours. On the other hand, what about the Finnish-speaking areas in Tornedalen? I don't know if Meänkieli has an official status there, but de facto those areas are certainly not unilingually Swedish. And marking a dot near Tampere in central Finland seems quite incorrect, since that area is nowhere near Swedish-speaking. Best regards, --BishkekRocks 19:41, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

OTRS-fråga[edit]

Hej, Jon Harald. Jag har förstått att du har tillgång till OTRS. Enligt beskrivningen av bilden Image:Bianca Press Pic.jpg har ett tillstånd skickats in men det finns ingen uppgift om OTRS-nummer. Finns det ett sådant? Thuresson 22:15, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Hei, jeg blander meg inn her, håper det går bra.
Tillatelsen for dette bildet er problematisk. Det er OTRS Ticket#: 2007033010018121 som Image:Bianca Press Pic.jpg refererer til, men den nevner ikke noen lisens. Det er kun User:RadioKirk som sier at «Licensing will be the same as for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:BR_Studio.jpg». Image:BR_Studio.jpg viser til OTRS Ticket#: 2006112510014228, der RadioKirk ber om et bilde der foreldrene til Bianca er «willing to release all rights worldwide». Jeanette Ryan sender da en e-post med bilder til RadioKirk der hun sier «Hi Kirk, Hope these will do».
Jeg minnes at jeg så disse e-postene i systemet før de ble besvart, men at jeg bestemte meg for å la noen andre ta problemet. Jeg vet ikke helt hva vi bør gjøre med bildene. --Kjetil r 23:11, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Image Question Image:Nauru_satellite.jpg[edit]

Hi Jon Harald, since you are the uploader of this high-res image of Nauru, may I ask you if the same source has an image of similar quality of neighboring Banaba Island? I haven't figured out how to navigate or search the source http://www.amr.gov very well.--Ratzer1 19:30, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Autres versions[edit]

Hi,

Funny, I didn't realize that other people created other versions templates (apart me). That's a good news since it can be considered as a proof of success, but now we have to deal with two close but different standards (Template:Other_versions/Easter_Island_map and Template:Other versions/Homer world map).

Your arguments are good sense but in fact, I always thought that above, below, left or right, the little plus/minus was a mistake... not flashy enough. Perhaps should we consider a more significative way to notify the user that other versions are centralized in a subtemplate? Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 19:19, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I was just about to say that using +/- is best because it is most neutral, language-wise. But then I did a test, and it turns out that {{int:...}} is turned on here (perhaps even universally). That means that when I write {{int:Edit}}, it will show up as Rediger for me, Modifier for you, and سمادول for a Pashto user. That will be a lot more visible, and probably very familiar to users as well (much more so than +/-). About placement, I think that it then might be best to have it above the gallery, to the right, just like the edit button for sections. I'll make an example on Template:Other versions/Märket plain. Jon Harald Søby 20:59, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Good for me. I guess we should finally create a template (Template:Edit other versions?) to wrap the wikicode on. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 10:05, 25 December 2007 (UTC)
I was thinking Template:Other versions could work for that, as it's not being used for anything else. Jon Harald Søby 12:59, 25 December 2007 (UTC)
In fact, as we use Template:Other versions/... as basename, I find a bit confusing to use it also as a true template. Furthermore if we just create a template for the “edit” link, it seems natural to me to use “edit” in the template name. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 17:39, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes, good point. I’ve created Template:Edit other versions now, and am in the process of inserting it to all the Other versions templates. Face-smile.svg Jon Harald Søby 20:05, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
Good work. OV templates are now ready to colonize Commons :) Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 10:31, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
