Files from Fotopedia[edit]

Hi, I was surprised to see some on Commons some of my pictures transferred from Fotopedia, because Fotopedia itself did`nt initiate any transfers. So, from one side it is good, because it was placed under one correct category and (wow!) under my name , but from other - there is no date, no description, strange name (File:Neĝa domo.jpg) and, moreover, that particular file (File:SvirzhCastle EasternCorner.JPG) was already loaded by me to the Commons with all that additional info. So, now there are sitting side-by-side two identical pictures with different descriptions. Now, my question: is there any possibility to inform me about my files transferred to wiki? In that case I`d have a possibility to add some information I have as an author in my disposition. Thanks, Mykola Swarnyk (talk) 03:37, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello, Mykola, thank you for your message! (It is, by the way, great to found one more of Fotopedia’s fotonauts also active here in Commons.) Some points:
  • The copying of material from Fotopedia to Commons is, on one hand, routine, as we here strive to gather all available media that is both in scope and that has a suitable copyright status (public domain or free license) — just like it is done for outher surces, such as Flickr, and on the other hand because it was announced that Fotopedia was about to close on August 10th, and there was a rush to grab as most material as possible. (Meanwhile all content was salvaged elsewhere and the usable fraction of it will eventually added to Commons, with less haste.)
  • This hurry caused some of the importing/uploading details (incl. duplicates) done by me to be less accurate that normal, as you noticed.
  • Lack of information for some files — namely those you mention, is due to lack of information in Fotopedia itself. I suggest you go on about improving that, by adding to the information box and categories in your photos.
  • Duplicated images should be merged, of course, that’s a routine operation in Commons.
  • An author category for your photography work should also be created.
Thanks again! -- Tuválkin 08:16, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
I just noticed that Category:Photographs by Mykola Swarnyk already exists: I added to it your photos newly brought over from Fotopedia and also some others that were already in Commons. -- Tuválkin 09:00, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for prompt answer! It`s a pity to hear that about Fotopedia! Who could expect! It was a very good school for me and now I understand the situation. So, good luck with transferring all the goods from there to here. Now, as I understand, I can go to my hidden autorship category and check the imported pictures? By the way, don't you think, these pictures have to be marked as particular category Category:transferred from Fotopedia? Mykola Swarnyk (talk) 06:51, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, now I see, it is under category Category:Photos from Fotopedia. Good! Mykola Swarnyk (talk) 06:57, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Yup, that’s right. I’m not sure, though, if in that cat should also go photos which were also available in Fotopedia, but have been uploaded to Commons independently of that. Probably so. -- Tuválkin 07:18, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
About requested deletion, I understand it`s not a good step. OK, please help me to be correct. How do I link these files, which are duplicating existing files? I am quite illiterate in these things. Also, am I not entitled to confirm the license? Another question, the link to "my Fotobedia account" shows nothing - is`nt be better to replace it with Mykola Swarnyk, because the category "Transferred from Fotopedia" is there? Also, most of these files are not showing any geotags or geographic places - should I add them manually? Also, I don't see many of my pictures from Fotopedia - are they already lost or they still will appear here? Thanks for your help and patience.

Hi Tuvalkin, I've blocked you for making personal attacks: [1], [2]. This is not the first instance where you have been blocked for gross incivility, but I do hope it will be the last. Please use this time to think about why personal attacks are not tolerated on Commons and how you will edit in a collegial fashion when this block expires. Have a nice day. Regards, FASTILY 07:24, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for taking your valuable time to block me, especially since you did it in such a way that the usual boilerplate template is not showing in my userpage — the one which includes instructions for me to ask to be unblocked. Never mind, I will find it. -- Tuválkin 08:37, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
That should help. -mattbuck (Talk) 10:28, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Mattbuck. (Seems that the thank function is absent from my talk page history, probably due to the blocking, maybe?) -- Tuválkin 10:56, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Trams by gauge[edit]

I just stumbled on Category:Trams by gauge (occasionally I do), and have a question for you. All trams in Russia use 1524 mm gauge, except those in Pyatigorsk, Rostov-on-Don & Kaliningrad, which I categorised accordingly. (Also, 4 out of 5 tram systems in Crimea are/were 1000 mm, which I've categorised, but those in Kerch are 1524 mm.) So... should the remaining 57 subcats of Category:Trams in Russia by city be just copied to Category:1524 mm track gauge trams or what? YLSS (talk) 22:10, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi YLSS! I think that the best way to do this elegantly is to create a separate tree under Category:Railways in Russia by track gauge, with subcats Category:1524 mm track gauge railways in Russia, Category:1000 mm track gauge railways in Russia, etc. Those will be used to categorize each individual railways system, big or small, and will have as their parents also Category:1000 mm track gauge, etc. The same for the rolling stock, as usually it grows enough to split that way. But it is impossible to do it all at once, so a couple weeks with slightly incomplete or inconsistent categorization is not the end of the world, while it gives you (and us all) to think about the best way to do stuff. -- Tuválkin 23:01, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
