subcats of Category:Quedlinburg[edit]

Hi Gryffindor.

Editing the article of de:Stiftskirche St. Servatius (Quedlinburg) I look up to the categories on Commons. There is Category:Quedlinburg - fine. But then there is the subcat Category:Collegiate Church, Castle, and Old Town of Quedlinburg, a term that looks like the naming for the "world heritage" - title. But already, there are some subcats. There is the Category:Castle of Quedlinburg and Category:Collegiate Church of Quedlinburg. But really, both of them are on the so called "Schlossberg" (translated Castle-Hill) and all files on the Castle shows the Church, too. So i think it would be the best to delete the Category:Old Town of Quedlinburg (because there's only a minority of pictures in the cat and subcats of Category:Quedlinburg not shown the buildings or things in "old town"). For both the others, getting them together in Category:Schlossberg Quedlinburg or Collegiate Church and Castle of Quedlinburg.

I would do it self, if there wasn't the Category:World Heritage Sites in Germany. Because there is the naming correct. So this is difficult. And there, your opinion (you have created this categories) is called. What can be the reason? Moving categories like "Churches in Quedlinburg" into "Collegiate Church, Castle, and Old Town of Quedlinburg", but then there would be the Category Quedlinburg be minimized out to round 20 pictures.

Jeah, sorry for this english. You know, school-english isn't that, what it sould be ;)

With greetings from Germany. --Quedel (talk) 19:09, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

hi Quedel,
thank you for your message. Well, remember that main policy is to use English for the categories, while you can use the native language for articles, which I think is a fair compromise because not everyone can speak German. So translation is always a bit difficult. As you rightly pointed out, the idea for the category Category:Collegiate Church, Castle, and Old Town of Quedlinburg is the UNESCO name, as you can see here Category:World Heritage Sites in Germany. So it only makes sense to break the main category down into "Collegiate Church of Quedlinburg", "Castle of Quedlinburg" and "Old town of Quedlinburg", don't you think? I am no expert on Quedlinburg, I don't know where the old town starts and where the new one begins, but the images should all be in their right categories if possible. If that does not make sense, I suppose you can get rid of "Old town of Quedlinburg", but the rest should remain with their English names. The English names were registered that way by the German government when applying to the UNESCO list, so I suppose the names they use must be official translations. sincerely Gryffindor (talk) 20:13, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
It's quite difficult. Because the "old town" is really greater than the most think. So, the called "new town" (Neustadt) is already part of the historical city of Quedlinburg and also included in the world heritage. I discovered a map from the Advisory Body Evaluation [1], but this was alreay a nomination and isn't including areas like the Münzenberg or the St. Wiperti-church listened in the text in paper.
  1. So the main problem is this: moving all pictures showing buildings of the historical town to "old town of Quedlinburg" will nearly clear the main category (only some pictures will remain). This isn't very useful for clicking on the category:Quedlinburg. Leaving all at status quo gives a well view about the town, but the few people clicking down UNESCO won't see most of the pictures. So moving the pictures from Category:Quedlinburg to Category:Old Town of Quedlinburg?
  2. Next: all pictures in Category:Castle of Quedlinburg are showing the Castle and the Collegiate church. There is currently one picture (File:Quedlinburg Schloss.JPG) only showing the Castle without the Collegiate Church. What to do here? Getting the pictures in both of the categories?
  3. I would mentioned to get Category:Old Town of Quedlinburg as a subcat from Quedlinburg directly, too. So it will be recognised better. Because all pictures with buildings (except the 2 of the Bahnhof/train station 1 / 2 within the world heritage and had to go in "old town" subcat.
So, as you see, i get the discussion completely moved to my talk page. I hope, its okay.

Commons-Übertragung[edit]

Hallo Quedel,
du hast heute einige Wespen-Bilder wie File:209 - bearbeitet Insekt auf Möhre.jpg nach Commons übertragen, auf denen jetzt ein merkwürdiges Lösch-tag ("'Wunsch des Urhebers Muscari 00:03, 14. Nov. 2010 (CET)") erscheint. Was hat es damit auf sich? --Túrelio (talk) 23:45, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Das ist wohl ein Fehler beim Übertragen: während ich mir eine Liste mit Dateien zum Übertragen machte, kam wohl ein SLA auf die Dateien, was der CH wohl mitnahm. Da ich nicht alle Transfers geprüft hatte, sah ich erst später diese Vorlage (warum auch immer die mit rübertransferiert wird). Die können raus diese Vorlagen. --Quedel (talk) 23:50, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
Da ich jetzt ins Bett möchte, mach du das am besten noch schnell, damit die Bilder nicht schnell-gelöscht werden. Hier Category:Other speedy deletions findest du die betroffenen. --Túrelio (talk) 23:54, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
das ist kein Fehler, die Bilder bitte wieder löschen --Muscarix (talk) 23:55, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Da Muscarix erneuten Speedydelete eingesetzt hat, hab ich gemäß den Regeln diesen in einen DeletionRequest gewandelt und aufgrund der Vielzahl halt einen MDR draus gemacht. Alles weitere dort. --Quedel (talk) 00:25, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Habe es jetzt mal mit dem Listcomparer im Autowikibrowser gemacht, wie es noch anders geht, weiß ich nicht.

Vielen lieben Dank. Das war ja eine tolle Liste. Interessante Bilder sind dabei zustande gekommen. Ein paar konnte man dabei ganz gut auch in andere Kategorien noch mit einbetten. Mal schauen, was ich mit den paar mache, die ich noch nicht wirklcih gut zuordnen konnte. Nur noch eins: woher kommen die (lt. Logbuch) nie existenten Bilder? Oder zeigt mir das das Logbuch nicht an, wenn ich oben auf "Log" klicke? (Monobook) --Quedel (talk) 13:07, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Weiß ich auch nicht.--Diwas (talk) 13:28, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Was die nur geographische Nähe angeht, da steht in der Beschreibungsvorlage Kreis Quedlinburg drin, ist aber nur im Quelltext zu sehen.--Diwas (talk) 13:40, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Okay, in den Quelltext hab ich zugegebenermaßen nicht geschaut. Die Redlinks hab ich jetzt erklärt (nachdem ich meine eigenen Redlinks darunter mal analysiert habe), es war die Unterscheidung von .jpg zu .JPG - da macht MediaWiki einen Unterschied. --Quedel (talk) 14:09, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Quedel!

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.

File:Tatra KT4D Zwickau.jpg[edit]

Hi Quedel, ich bin gerade über dieses Foto gestolpert. Die Uhr ganz oben wurde in den 1980ern im Zuge der Neugestaltung des ganzen Areals (Bahnhofstraße, Wiederaufnahme der Linie 1, neue Zentralhaltestelle, Fußgängeunterführung usw.) angebracht. Schon kurze Zeit später ging sie kaputt, wurde repariert, ging wieder kaputt usw. etc. ad nauseam. Irgendwann (wann? Hätte man damals aufschreiben müssen) wurden die Reparaturversuche aufgegeben. NdW wurde dann an derselben Giebelwand eine neue Uhr (plug'n-play) angebracht, ohne die alte zu entfernen. Wenn Du auf Deinem Foto genau hinsiehst, so erkennst Du sie hinter der Fahrerkabine der Straßenbahn. als Du daß Foto geschossen hast, war die Original-Uhr schon ein paar Jahre außer Betrieb.

Hi,

When you need to nominate for deletion several pictures with the same rationale, you can use the mass deletion request. This allows a coherent and uniform request handling. --Dereckson (talk) 23:56, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

User:ItsLassieTime and Easter card[edit]

ItsLassieTime was banned on Wikipedia nearly 3 years ago, and that's also about the last time he posted here. The curious things are (1) he remains unblocked here; and (2) another editor seems to have taken over, at least where this one image is concerned. I have not investigated further. But I can tell you that ItsLassieTime and its many socks were notorious for many things, including copyright violations. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 15:19, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

I doubt there is a connection between the two editors. They seem to have substantially different approaches to the project. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 15:26, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
I hadn't view about the block-log, only seeing that the user is not active sind three years. I figured out this file while the de.wikinews uses this file. Maybe one of the other have more informations about this file while seeing it on the DR? But thanks to you for this information. --Quedel (talk) 16:06, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

File:Bürgermeister Wilde.jpg[edit]

Hallo Quedel, vielen Dank für die Info. Die Datei kann hier auf Commons gelöscht werden. Es gibt eine andere Version des Fotos in der deutschen Wikipedia. Das Bild ist definitiv vor 1907 entstanden. Ich habe das Bild in einer Zeitung aus dem Jahr gefunden.--Viele Grüße S. F. B. Morse (talk) 17:33, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Man sollte nur beachten, dass es einerseits um eine Commons-Datei geht und andererseits um eine Datei auf de.wikipedia, die nicht nach Commons kann. Über Löschanträge entscheide nicht ich. --Quedel (talk) 19:36, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Das ist mir bewusst und ich finde solche Löschanträge auch absolut in Ordnung. Es gibt genug Gründe, solche Bilder im Zweifelsfall lieber wieder aus Commons raus zunehmen.

Ich wünsche dir noch ein schönes WE.--Viele Grüße S. F. B. Morse (talk) 05:45, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in Kürze[edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo Quedel,

in Kürze ist es wieder soweit. Der nun schon traditionelle Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments wird im September zum vierten Mal stattfinden. In ähnlicher Form hatte unlängst der Wettbewerb "Wiki Loves Earth" eine erfolgreiche Premiere. Zu allen bisherigen vier Wettbewerben haben seit 2011 gut 3000 unterschiedliche Teilnehmer (User) ihren Beitrag geleistet. Du warst dabei, und bist auch herzlich eingeladen, am bevorstehenden WLM-Wettbewerb wieder dabei zu sein.

Allein in Deutschland wurden in den letzten drei Jahren im Rahmen von WLM rund 100.000 Fotos zu den insgesamt ca. 850.000 Kulturdenkmalen bundesweit hochgeladen. Jährlich haben sich mehrere Hundert Wiki-Fotographen daran beteiligt. Auch im kommenden Denkmalmonat wird dies gewiss wieder der Fall sein. Der Tag des offenen Denkmals am 14. September bietet bundesweit vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Denkmale nicht nur von außen, sondern auch von innen zu fotografieren. Denkmallisten sind dabei ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt und zugleich auch Ziel der Einbindung der Fotos. Auch in diesem Jahr sind wieder neue Denkmallisten hinzugekommen, die hilfreich bei der Planung von individuellen oder Gruppen-Fototouren sind und auf eine Bebilderung warten, wie z.B. zu Görlitz oder Zittau. Unter den Landeshauptstädten fehlt nur noch Stuttgart. Aber auch hier ist Licht in Sicht.

In der Mitte Deutschlands hat die Denkmallandschaft der thüringischen Landeshauptstadt Erfurt nun das Licht der Wikipedia-Welt entdeckt. Mehr als 50 Tabellen enthalten 3.700 Denkmale. Allein die wunderschön restaurierte Altstadt umfasst 1.800 Denkmale. Eine von WMDE geförderte WLM-Fototour nach Erfurt am Wochenende vom 29. – 31. August lädt herzlich ein, diese einzigartige Kulturlandschaft zu dokumentieren. Mehr Informationen findest Du auf der Projektseite.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 16. August 2014)
