About the deletion of File:Access Shaft at Hill Road, West Island Line 1.jpg[edit]

Why does nobody notify me about the deletion request of this photo? I'm the original uploader.

Also, FYI, these can be deleted as well, according to the reason:

--Minghong (talk) 04:08, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, my mistake. I thought you are the one who deleted my photo. --Minghong (talk) 08:21, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Category:Ride with the Hespertalbahn[edit]

I reactivated this category and reverted your image moves from this category. There is a big difference between the Hespertalbahn itself and images taken during a ride with the Hespertalbahn as shown in this category you shouldn't ignore! -- Ies (talk) 20:53, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, there is a difference, but the category still doesn't fit into the established schemes. A similar category "Ride with ..." does not exist on Commons for any other railway, road or vehicle. Images are primarily categorized by what they show. Sometimes they are also categorized by the locatiopn or objekt from which they were taken. In the latter case the category is usually named "View from ..." (see Category:Views by viewpoint and Category:Views from vehicles). Hence, if the category is reactivated, it should be renamed Category:Views from the Hespertalbahn, and it should only contain images not showing the Hespertalbahn itself (which belong directly into Category: Hespertalbahn or Category: Rolling stock of Hespertalbahn) but only the surrounding landscape, especially the Baldeneysee and the Hardenbergufer. --Tetris L (talk) 09:04, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
Let's continue the discussion at Category talk:Ride with the Hespertalbahn#Move. --Tetris L (talk) 09:12, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Re: Graphs, charts, schemas and diagrams[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you removed Category:Energy statistics from Category:Energy schemas and diagrams (and subcategories accordingly), stating that "Charts and graphs are not schemas or diagrams". I see where you're coming from, but I have to say that (unfortunatly) the definition of these terms is not quite as clear as you (and me too) would like them to be. If you read the relevant articles in Wikipedia (which should be the main reference, not some Google search), you see that the terms are pretty wide, collective terms, often used like synonyms. The term diagram includes various charts, graphs, schemas, plans, technical drawings and even maps. Consequently, the terms are largely mixed up all over Wikipedia and Commons. To make life easier, I put schemas and diagrams together in one category in the energy tree, because there is no clear difference anyway. Maybe I should have named the category Category:Energy schemas, diagrams, charts, graphs, plans and all the rest. --Tetris L (talk) 19:51, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

If you want to include statistics under schemas and diagrams, I believe that is incorrect. But I don't want to spend a lot of time arguing about it.
Just please do not remove obvious statistical charts and graphs from statistics categories. Many people will not look for statistical charts, graphs, and tables in schemas and diagrams categories.
So statistics categories need to also be direct subcategories of their topics. For example; Category:Energy statistics should be directly under Category:Energy. If you also want to put Category:Energy statistics under Category:Energy schemas and diagrams that is OK by me if you insist. But leave Category:Energy statistics directly under Category:Energy too. --Timeshifter (talk) 18:34, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I didn't remove any content from any statistical category. Quite the opposite, I added a lot to them during my recent clean-ups.
Well, I believe that it's not expected too much from somebody who is looking for a statistical diagram (charts and graphs are diagrams) to understand that he will find it in the diagram category. Off course everybody wants his favorite object or topic as high up in the category tree as possible. But I feel that this clutters the main categories. In a flat category that is packed it is much harder to find something than in one that is well structured with subcategories in multiple levels. It's a matter of taste. --Tetris L (talk) 18:48, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Mass broken edits[edit]

You've just moved a lot of files from Category:North Sea to undefined:Coasts of the North Sea (example). Please repair the damage done and fix your scripts before continuing. BR, tsca (talk) 09:08, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Must have been a temporary hick-up of Cat-a-lot, which is not my script but an official Gadget. I'm not a script coder, just a plain user, so I wouldn't mess with the script to fix or break it. However, everything seems to be okay again now. Did you fix all of those errors? If yes, thank you! --Tetris L (talk) 21:33, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

File:PearlRiverTower Jan.jpg[edit]

You removed categories about renewable energy on this file, without comments, have you got a reason for that ? This skycrapper use wind turbines and solar panel to be energy positive. 82.225.234.108 14:30, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

The file was already in multiple sub-categories of Category:Renewable energy: Category:Renewable energy in China and Category:Solar energy in China and Category:Solar architecture. Please read Commons:Categories#Over-categorization, it explains why I removed the category. Actually, I should have removed even more. --Tetris L (talk) 21:34, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Photo Gruhl[edit]

As the photographer is unknown nobody can be sure that he died before 1943. So the photo is not public domain. Best regards 88.77.135.126 17:36, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in Kürze[edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo Tetris L,

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)
