Category:Richard Hamilton (painter)[edit]

You added a couple of pics of Richard Hamilton with the date 22 December 2011. As R.H. died in Sept 2011, could you please add the date of the interview taken and the copyrights of the source, just in case that you are not the author. --Goesseln (talk) 13:41, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

British Library images[edit]

Thanks for some of the categorising you've been doing on the BL images set. It's turned out to be a bigger undertaking than I'd expected, so I'm really grateful for your help.

One thing though: Is there any chance you could hold off, at least for a couple of days, from removing some of the cats that were auto-added at the upload stage? I know some of these are redlinks at the moment, but ideally (it seems to me) each book or each manuscript or each finite set of prints ought to have its own category, and I do intend to set these up - it's just I haven't got to it yet.

Of course, where the classmark corresponds to only a single unique item, or a single watercolour or drawing or engraving, then it doesn't make sense to set up a category. But where there's an identifiable thing that many items belong to (and which may have its own cataloguing data that we can link to), then I think creating a separate category probably makes sense.

Is that something you would agree with, or do you think I need to be more wary than I perhaps am of the dangers of over-categorisation?

All best, Jheald (talk) 17:04, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Useful comments on my talkpage. Thanks. I've done quite a lot of categorisation on the last 50 or so images in the set; manuscripts are next, but I wanted to be a bit clearer about what we already had -- which, to me, meant trying to organise what was already there a bit more systematically to see what was what. Hence quite a lot of category moving over the last couple of days.
Thanks for the Beowulf updates. Is there a Commons tool to help with such replacements? I queued File:Portrait of Henry, Duke of Lancaster - William Bruges's Garter Book (c.1440-1450), f.8 - BL Stowe MS 594 (cropped).jpg to replace File:Henry_of_Grosmont.JPG at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands (diff), but it seems that nobody has touched the page for months. All best, Jheald (talk) 09:09, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Good suggestion about AWB. I've been using it a certain amount on Commons recently, and I have the permissions for it for en-wiki; but not for other language projects (and I'm not sure it has much cross-project project functionality -- I think you need to separately log it in to each project in turn, then build a hit-list for it, so it's not much substitute.
Re further updates -- I'm not planning any more big uploads with GWtoolset at the moment. My main project recently has been the "Mechanical Curator" set of images from the British Library on Flickr; but for those the metadata is *very* weak, so it's easier to make the uploads directly using Flickr2Commons bot one book at a time, then use AWB, rather than trying to wrangle together some XML.
Before any release, I do hope Europeana will make some fixes. In particular, the Commons pages it's producing at the moment simply aren't good enough, with unrecognised fields being added to the {{Artwork}} template, whereas expected ones are not being created, and the fields are not being created in standard order. This MUST be fixed before any wide release. The developers did say they'd get back to me on the list about my comments, but (unless I've missed a post) so far there hasn't been a word.

Sculptures by Joan Miró[edit]

Encara que la majoria de fotos d'escultures de la Fundació Miró siguin obra del Joan Miró, no totes ho són. Per exemple: 4 wings by Alexander Calder. Per tant, no podem usar "Sculptures by Joan Miró" directament a "Sculptures in the Fundació Joan Miró". Potser una solució seria crear una categoria intermitja anomenada "Sculptures of Joan Miró in the Fundació Joan Miró". Altrament, hauries d'afegir "Sculptures by Joan Miró" individualment a les escultures que siguin obra d'ell. --Jordiferrer (talk) 21:07, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
