JFTR: artefact was no typo[edit]

Check out artefact, it might be a case of en-US vs. en-GB vs. en-oed, I've added the COM:REDCAT template for the bots.:tongue:Be..anyone (talk) 18:51, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Be..anyone — I see what you mean; I didn’t know: I assumed it was a typo, the kind of typo I’d make myself, actually, as it is spelled with an "e" in all other languages I know. -- Tuválkin 13:14, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

*mtKRZt*[edit]

I'm puzzled:   (mtKRZtq) vs.   (umtKRZt). Or do you intend to overwrite   (umtKRZt) with blue on top of red as in   (umtKRZtq)? YLSS (talk) 12:19, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, User:YLSS, and apologies for the delay. The way I see it, in these cases we can ditch the implicit rule that bahn goes always on top of u, as the naming system allows for an exact description:   (mtKRZtq) means that that “main” item of the icon is horizontal (suffix "q") and red (no preffix "u"); thats the opposite of   (umtKRZtq), where “main” item of the icon is still horizontal (suffix "q") but blue (preffix "u"); in this view,   (umtKRZt) should be redrawn (re-stacked) to show the blue over the red, as its main item is vertical (no suffix "q") and blue (preffix "u"). This is especially useful for tunnels, as its semantics is more free than for surface level crossings, where trams yield almost always to heavier rail — as a tram tunnel can be simply deeper than a rail tunnel. Feel free to move this to Talk:BSicon/Renaming (o.s.l.t.) and continue the discussion there. -- Tuválkin 20:16, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
No, no, I understood your logic back then, and pretty much agree with it. I just hope that there won't be any opposition from the adherents of Bilderkatalog. And also my usual complain about duplication/cluttering of revisions instead of renaming... But I'm nagging. YLSS (talk) 23:15, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
You’re right again — sorry I was too quick to draw a defense. Anyway, at least it is well documented now. Maybe moved this to a talk page… -- Tuválkin 13:14, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

kea + mwl[edit]

Hi, I've created some missing {{User kea}}-[0|1|2|3|N], added them to {{User/Language1}}@k, created the missing Category:User kea-[0|1|2|3|N], and requested an {{editprotected}} on Template:Babel list of languages adding older {{User ain}} and {{User av}} sets while at it.

So far it was simple, and maybe pointless, at the moment you are the only user in the new kea categories. But on your user page you also have {{User mwl-1}}, and apparently that should be {{User ast-1}}, or rather, that's what the link in {{User mwl-1}} suggests. Is that correct, can I simply redirect {{User mwl-1}} to {{User ast-1}}, or is something not as it should be? –Be..anyone (talk) 10:19, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Be..anyone, thanks for the kea work — Capeverdean is a vibrant language with almost half a million speakers on three continents. I hope and expect its usage scope to grow soon and its speakers to finally start using it for things like Wikimedia projects. (My knowledge of it is merely passive, though: I cannot create any content, only read others’.)
You’re right that mwl is a subset of ast, however, Mirandese (thusly termed) is enshrined in the Constitution as an official language of Portugal (a completely bogus accolade, with no practical meaning), and has even a separate, official spelling (you can trust Portuguese linguists to make a mess of things and ignore a century of dialectological and orthographic ground work made by their collegues abroad). I’d warmly welcome a solution that would subsum me among Asturian-Leonese speakers (again, as a non-speaker with mere passive understanding) yet somehow, if possible, retaining the separate Babel boxes and their labels for user pages…

Streets are not roses[edit]

Hello, Tuvalkin! I see you reverted my removal of Rua da Rosa from Rosa. Surely Things named after plants covers that relationship? If you think it’s important to link there directly from the rose cat, wouldn’t it be better to create a named-after-roses category under both TNAP and R, and put the street (and whatever else may qualify) in there?—Odysseus1479 (talk) 03:08, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Streets are not roses, surely. Streets are not generals, either, so I suggest you go to Category:Avenue Foch (Paris) and break its semantic nexus with its namesake, too. And from there you can go around in Commons, removing categorization that doesnt follow the principle [child] is [parent]. When you’re done with that, Commons will be significantly less useful — I’m sure there’s a barnstar for that. -- Tuválkin 03:18, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

Add patroller & rollback flag to your account because you are very active. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:07, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Cool! Shade.png Thanks for your trust. -- Tuválkin 15:23, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Category:Trams on display[edit]

I've removed several parent categories from Category:Trams on display because that title, if I understand the English right, does not necessary mean that these trams aren't in service any more: they may be not in service yet, or temporary taken away to some exhibition to be returned later... E.g., in Category:Trams in Moscow on display only Category:Retro trams in Moscow are permanently out of service. Maybe those parent categories should be re-assigned to member cats, or something like that?.. YLSS (talk) 13:48, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Well, they could or should, but you removed them, didn’t you? You could have changed the parent-child link to a {{see also}} links, or brought the matter to discussion first, instead. For now we have yet another half hearted, experimental, scarcely populated subcat under Category:Trams, with no other parent, no explanation, and relying solely on its (easily changeable and easily misundertsanble) name. I wish you directed your zeal to much older and even less clear “rare animals” in that category, such as Category:Double-ended streetcars and light rail vehicles‎ (yes, this exists and it is a subcat of Category:Trams…).
I can't invent any other parent category except Category:Transport exhibitions, although "on display" isn't strictly equal to "at exhibition"... Well, I can snap back with you own phrase "it's a work in progress" — but let's not go that bitchy ;) After all, I did populate that category: no less than 4 events of Moscow trams on display, plus those retro trams.

Hi, Tuválkin. I do not understand Portuguese, so please help me and comment the request. Taivo (talk) 13:58, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

My 2,00 c€ added and sadly a Symbol delete vote.svg delete vote. But maybe User:Gunnex has a better idea: unlike him, I don’t know much about copyright, and I’m not Brazilian. -- Tuválkin 01:28, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
