Really sorry, I have made a total rewrite of the script today (I have written it some months ago) and now shouldn't be problems at all. By the way, If you can test it (maybe uploading an image that you need to upload) can be a nice Idea :-) If the bot is still too fast (but it doesn't..) I will stop it ;) Sorry for the bug-problems, --Filnik 21:35, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. Tried it as suggested, and no problems with a five minute delay between upload and licence information add. PeterJewell 00:58, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
No, thank you :-) for the patience, the kindness and your help ^__^ Bye, --Filnik 05:44, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Templates, categories and parserFunctions[edit]

I've improved the template {{Scans from 'The Book of the Motor Car', 1912}} and this should solve the categorization problem. It's done with "parser functions" (a good subject for searching, but there's a lot to them) so that it only categorizes when it's in the right place. See what you think.

I ought to do this properly, think it through and even make a meta-template for all these. Time! Andy Dingley (talk) 13:04, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for making you more work! I sometimes find myself haunting Commons and refining image categories -- sometimes getting trapped for hours! I think it was quite late when I encountered this cat and I clicked on the "sub-cat" several times before I realised I was going round in circles! (Yes, I know that sounds daft...)
I know a little about templates and parser functions (I developed the RoutemapRoute template used to show arrowed directions on some railway/canal route maps at WP.) But this seemed to be a simple include/noinclude issue. When I discovered it wasn't, the only obvious action to prevent a recursive category was to copy the template content.
Your solution does appear to work. In answer to your comment, it should be possible to do your cat inclusion in the opposite direction -- ie ONLY include it in mainspace pages, rather than excluding it from cat namespace. That would avoid the user page issue you highlight. (The noinclude will handle the template page for you.) 'fraid you'll have to work out the parser code for yourself, as I don't know off-hand what the correct syntax would be. Fortunately, what you're trying to do is relatively simple.

Traction engines[edit]

Hi Peter, I just reverted your "steam-powered" category addition to "traction engines" because there is a "steam tractor" subcat, and as such, only that cat should have the "steam powered" category. However, on looking up Wikipedia, it seems that technically ALL traction engines are steam-powered. Now what should we do to clarify the situation here? Merge "Steam tractors" into "traction engines" and then make it redirect here in the future? Ingolfson (talk) 12:13, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, one of the defining features of a traction engine is it being steam-powered!
Unfortunately, the related terminology does not neatly fit into categories. 'Traction Engine' is a fairly generic term, and covers a number of different sub-types, of which the "steam tractor" is one. In the UK, the recognised sub-type "light steam tractor" would also be identified as (and equally correctly named) as a traction engine. You will find that some people refer to any type of traction engine as a steam tractor (which I realise is tending to undermine my argument!) but I'm not convinced that just converting Steam Tractor into a redirect is a good idea either: there are US-built steam vehicles that would not be called traction engines (there's a picture of a Best steam tractor, which is an excellent example). I felt that my categorisation reflected the appropriate subdivisions as best as could be expected.
Having seen that the category has been changed to Category:Steam-powered tractors, I would suggest that there is no longer a problem. I have re-added the correct category to the Traction Engine page and heavily revised the pre-amble to try and address any remaining issues. I have also removed 'steam-powered tractors' from the traction engines cat, if that's what is required to resolve this.
In due course we will need to create sub-cats for 'Agricultural engine' and 'light steam tractor', but these are rather harder to distinguish as they are much more 'general purpose' forms of traction engine.
Note that there are numerous mis-classified steam engine -related images. I am gradually sorting them, and creating the necessary categories as I go, but it is a time-consuming task...

Happy to go along with your suggestions. Cheers, Ingolfson (talk) 04:20, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
