Kategorier[edit]

Hej. Hvorfor alle de mærkelige kategorier på dine uploadede billeder. Bemærk venligst kategori strukturen, ligesom dette ikke er en dansk side. Mvh. --Pixi Uno (talk) 17:48, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Hej. Tak for kommentaren. Hvor "bemærker jeg kategori strukturen" henne? Jeg har givet mine uploadede billeder kategorier på både dansk og engelsk fordi jeg er aktiv begge steder og at de så kan bruges af begge steder. At du synes de er "mærkelige" er din personlige mening. Jeg vil gerne lære mere om de forskellige kategorier, hvor kan jeg lære om det? RhinoMind (talk) 19:56, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Atomium[edit]

There is no non commercial use clause in Belgian copyright law so CC-BY-NC would make no difference.Geni (talk) 13:36, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

If this is really true, it would make it easier to allow for one, if Wiki Commons allowed for non-commercial licenses in the first place. By the way, the possible Belgian prohibition of non-commercial publishing, has nothing to do with the FOPs of that country. RhinoMind (talk) 14:09, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
The prohibition of non-commercial publishing is just standard bern convention stuff. Even Napoleonic code countries tend not to produce copyright wavies outs that wide (the closest I'm aware of is South korea which had/has a very board opt out for educational use. Caused issues with text books). Commons and the wider wikimedia movement has very little influence on how countries chose to run their copyright system and allowing NC material would provide little incentive for reform.
Worse still "non-commercial" is legaly a very poorly defined concept. See for example the recent German ruling that basically decided that all forms of publication were commercial. While I expect that ruling to be appealed I can't predict which way the appeal will go and there are many many other grey areas around the term.Geni (talk) 15:37, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

@Colin: Done. Thanks for your notice! RhinoMind (talk) 08:50, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
RhinoMind, I reverted your edit as it deleted a lot of content and undid updates. Please try again. HelenOnline 09:22, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
@HelenOnline: Strange. I didn't edit that page at all. Anyway, I have corrected my voting on this page also now, as originally encouraged by User:Colin RhinoMind (talk) 09:55, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I think it is ok now. You may have edited an earlier version dated when you first voted via Colin's link above, in which case it should have warned you: "You are editing a prior version of this page. If you save it, any changes made since this version will be removed." HelenOnline 10:59, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Oops sorry, I see you have now allocated one 3 star rating and two 2 star ratings. You need to allocate one 3 star rating, one 2 star rating and one 1 star rating. HelenOnline 11:04, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
@HelenOnline: Corrected. Hope it was the right page? Sorry for my errors. RhinoMind (talk) 13:49, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
RhinoMind, I'm still waiting for you to fix your vote per above. Please could you do it soon, otherwise I'll have to eliminate your votes from the count and just go with the others. Thanks. -- Colin (talk) 11:32, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
@Colin: Well it would definitely help if you told me what page I am to edit! The links you provided was bullsh... RhinoMind (talk) 13:42, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
I told you want page to edit, in the link that makes the header of this section. What is wrong with it? -- Colin (talk) 14:30, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
@Colin: I don't know, but something went wrong apparently. Maybe not your fault, I dont know. Anyway hope everything is ok now. RhinoMind (talk) 14:41, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks RhinoMind, I think it is fine now. You have to be careful not to edit an older version than the current version (assuming that is what happened here). Colin's link was a diff to show your historical edit but you need to open the current page to edit the current version. HelenOnline 08:15, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

House of culture[edit]

Even stranger, we have Category:Palaces of culture and Category:Houses of culture, which appear to be the same thing. in the US, we have "cultural centers" which are much more informally structured than in the communiist bloc. I think we need to merge the cats as you suggested, and further merge these two, and create a parallel "cultural center" for all the buildings around the world not part of the communist concept.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 16:59, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

@Mercurywoodrose: Hi and thanks for your thoughts on this! I really endorse a meta-category so to speak, a bit like what you are talking about. Just for the sake of simplicity, usefulness and an overview. However, I see no reason why various forms of cultural centers in different cultures, should be omitted from such a meta-category? Actually, I believe every kind of cultural center should be gathered and contained in such a category. The specific everyday structure of the centers, will be explained on the specific pages. Or perhaps in sub-categories if needed. Is this something you have thought deeply about? Do you have good explanations, as to why the cultural centres of the former Soviet Union, should not be contained in any meta-category?
I think "Cultural center" is a good name-choice for a meta-category, as it does not specify the type of the specific centers. The usual problem is, if we should use the British "centres" instead of the American "centers" if you know what I mean? :-) I am not aware of Wikipedias policies on this.
Hope to hear from you.
Btw. I think we should discourage the use of the word "communist", as this is a word with different meanings to different people.
RhinoMind (talk) 21:06, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
yes, we need a metacategory for all of them, "commie" or not, with definitions of each subgroup. "Cultural center" is a great neutral choice. as to whether it should be the british spelling: if we have many more such sites in either america or the british spelling world, choose that spelling for the category. it doesnt really matter though, for a culturally neutral term. policy is mostly around culturally specific articles, such as "oscar wilde" or "ernest hemingway" using their versions of english in their articles.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 21:22, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
Great, thats something to progress from there.
I would have really liked to discuss the meaning and structure of various centers in different cultures. Because I personally needs some clarifications and because it will also ease the categorization further down the road. I am however taking a break from on-line activities, as I am getting really busy elsewhere at the moment. I just state these intentions so I/we can catch up on this issue later on. That is one of the comforting aspects of on-line editing; time is not your master to the same extent :-) RhinoMind (talk) 21:34, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
I agree the word communist is completely inappropriate. just used for shorthand in this discussion. "second world", which is never used, would be more neutral. or just "soviet bloc" and "china".Mercurywoodrose (talk) 01:30, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Ole[edit]

Well, all i know is a search shows no works into english aside from "otto is a rhino: stories and drawings" ([2]), which is out of print and expensive. maybe someone would like to translate them? Rightscenter.com used to promote translation, but its long gone. getting publishing companies to move on an older childrens author is going to be very hard. you would need to make friends with a childrens book sales rep who is bilingual in danish, and get them to fall in love with his work. or an editor. I suspect the editors in new york like white wine-ship a scholastic editor a case of wine, perhaps?Mercurywoodrose (talk) 01:30, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

@Mercurywoodrose: Great info! I have had big trouble finding proper databases to search for Danish-English translations in general. Another author was "Ebbe Kløvedal Reich", but there are plenty. My "best" solution turned out to be just Google, which is really not a very good solution after all.
I dont know how you did it Mercurywoodrose, but you guessed somehow, that I would personally like to translate some works! :-) It is true. First of all though, I was simply looking for already translated works, to fill in on Wikipedia articles and as a first-order investigation on which author was noteworthy and had notability. In the long run, I might get into some publishing also, as I am translating works into both English and Danish (back and forth) as a hobby of mine. I am working on translating "Lafacadio Hearn" into Danish fx. I think with todays technology I might be able publish them myself, if it ever gets to that. I use LaTeX, if you know that program? I dont think this will ever be a way to earn money for me - unfortunately -, so I have little aspirations to engage in the proper editing business. The future might turn out different of course, so thanks a lot for the advice, I didn't knew white-wine was such a treat in NY ... lol Cheers. RhinoMind (talk) 12:11, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
i used to know some people in the publishing business, but no longer do. I do remember that 2 canadian childrens book publishers seemed to be open to quirky, nonmainstream books, of which an old danish work would possibly fit their lists: firefly books [3][4] and Annick press[5], which has a Wikipedia article. I agree this might be a good time to self publish such a work, but getting the rights to translate would be tricky, as publishers hold onto them fiercely. you would have to write to the copyright holders of his works and find out if they are open to this. Its possible that they might be willing to look at a translation if done for free, and then decide if they wanted to pay you. thats speculation on my part, and i dont know enough about the copyright status of such a work to say if thats a risk.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 18:57, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I guess the copyright issue is a whole chapter of its own and even though it is probably the most important one, I haven't wrestled much with it yet. At the moment, I am just translating stuff occasionally for my own enjoyment and I am not even sure, if the quality of it will be acceptable for markets abroad. I much appreciate your input on relevant publishers and I will definitely look into it. I am not sure I will ever get to the business side of things, as it has never been a die hard goal for me to get there in the first place, but it is surely interesting to play with the thought of it, so who knows what might happen? If I was only to translate and publishers handled all the copyright issues, marketing and printing stuff it wouldn't be so hard... an interesting thought.
Besides, we dont make much white wine here in Denmark (or Scandinavia for that matter), but we happen to produce excellent cherry-wines.[6] It is not so well-known for some reason, and the quirkiness of it all might perhaps suit a few Canadian publishers...?RhinoMind (talk) 21:21, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Deletion fenzy[edit]

Where was the discussion about the deletion of this photo?

I know it was mentioned on File:Søystgade 2.jpg, but in the deleting-frenzy initiated there, there has never been given any reasons why this specific photo was or should be deleted.

The graffiti was (does not exist any more) painted in a place where graffiti is officially allowed. It can be debated if it is considered an artwork. I dont think so and would like to see the WP-police present good arguments that is was.

RhinoMind (talk) 23:59, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Above moved from File:Graffiti (wall peace).jpg by Jarekt (talk) 17:02, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
The discussion took place at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Sølystgade 2.jpg --Jarekt (talk) 17:02, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
@Jarekt:
No.
Please read the discussion that you (and I myself!) are referring to. The files was never discussed prior to deletion.
To spell it out in capitals: The discussion was about the specific File:Sølystgade 2.jpg. The other 8 (!) files that User:Túrelio mentioned there, has never ever been discussed prior to their deletion and no arguments or reasons for their deletion was ever given or documented. Túrelio hints that they all fall in the same category as File:Sølystgade 2.jpg, but this is complete bullocks. Complete bullocks. I am not saying that all 8 files should be restored, I am first and foremost complaining about the complete lack of arguments and discussion prior to deletion. At least 2 of the files on Túrelios random black list, should indeed never have been deleted for quite clear reasons. I have now spend time putting these reasons up here: File talk:Graffiti (wall peace).jpg and here: File talk:Grundfos Kollegiet (detalje 1).JPG. Again.
I would like to discuss specific file-related details on the specific files own talk-pages, not here. Here on my talk page, we can discuss the violation of proper procedures in general, a very important issue.
If the sad procedures I have experienced here is becoming standard on WP, we have a very serious problem! I would certainly like to call attention to this problem.
RhinoMind (talk) 17:59, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
As if all this mess was not enough, you (Jarekt) completely deleted my complaints on File talk:Grundfos Kollegiet (detalje 1).JPG, which was an even worse example of the disturbing Deletion Frenzy. This specific photo was not showing any kind of Art. It was a photo of a construction of which there is very clearly FOP. Túrelio even points it out specifically to me. I have re-created my post on the files talk page now, and hopefully someone could reassure me that it was indeed a violation of procedures, a mistake and perhaps write an apology?
RhinoMind (talk) 17:59, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
RhinoMind, we do not keep pages in file namespace which do not have files, so do not be surprised if they are deleted. As for the discussion it is quite common to have deletion requests with multiple files, when the reason for the deletion is exactly the same. If you do not agree with the deletion, or with the indirect claim that reason for the deletion is exactly the same, than please discuss it at Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests instead of on the file namespace pages, which will just get deleted. --Jarekt (talk) 18:53, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
Ok then, I will have a look at the page you mention and perhaps post there later. I would like deletion procedures to be taken seriously, I would like some kind of professional communication to be enforced as well. Its important. If some things needs to be explained over and over again, make a template or something for it. Bots do that, so human editors can just as well. Thanks for the info Jarekt.
