The tireless ‎Hazard-Bot has been replacing {{int:license}} with {{int:license-header}} for some time now. However, the derivativeFX tool that you're using still includes the older tag; maybe it would be better to update that tool/contact its developer/do something else? (No idea, I don't use it, just a suggestion.) YLSS (talk) 17:03, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up, YLSS; I had noticed the bot edits, but overlooked that derivativeFX was introducing the obsolete wikicode. I’ll fix it manually from now on; as it is, the code generated by derivativeFX needs to be copied and pastes to the upload page, after the latest WMF fuckup user experience enhacement. -- Tuválkin 10:30, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

BTW, I encountered this pretty template: {{AttribSVG}}, used for example in   (exv-STRr+SHI1+l). It seems to be more dedicated for SVGs (and takes less space...). YLSS (talk) 09:15, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

YLSS; , I had that icon in my “radar” for renaming, but you were faster. I noticed {{AttribSVG}}, too, and added it to my toolbox. Along with Special:Upload and copy&paste from other icons, and it is all one needs. -- Tuválkin 10:22, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Olive Branch[edit]

Hi Tuvalkin, hope you're well. I am not sure how it happened, but we clearly seem to have started things off on the wrong foot. I would like to extend an olive branch of peace (here's a nifty pictorial: Olive branch.svg) and ask that we be friends & collaborators. I have a lot of respect for the work you do here for the BSicon project and on Commons' train images, and I would very much like for us to be able to help one another work towards our shared goal improving Commons :) Please consider. Best, FASTILY 20:08, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Your contact is unexpected, Fastily, as well as its contents. It will surely consider it, along with all our previous interactions. -- Tuválkin 00:54, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Category:Unidentified trams in Europe[edit]

Saluton. Mi ne bone komprenas, kial vi metas multajn tramfotojn el Århus de Kurt Rasmussen (eble ankaŭ aliajn) en Category:Unidentified trams in Europe. Ja en la priskribaj paĝoj, la tramtipoj kaj ankaŭ vagonnumeroj estas plene menciitaj? Ni por ili ankoraŭ ne havas kategoriojn, sed mi ne pensas, ke tio signifas, ke ili estas "neidentigitaj" - tio laŭ mi uziĝu por okazoj, kie ni vere ne scias, kion montras la foto. darkweasel94 13:51, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Saluton, Darkweasel! Mi laboras pri detaligo de Århus, nun, post Sóller kaj Lisboa. Vi notos ke mi markis per tiu kategorio tiujn fotojn kie la flotnumero estas neindikita (temas ĝis nun ĉiam pri remorkoj). Mi planas movi tion al nova, kreota subkategorio Unidentified trams in Denmark, aŭ eble eĉ Unidentified trams in Århus (aŭ eĉ Unidentified trams trailers in Århus, se indos!), same kiel pri aliaj, nune ŝveliĝantaj kategorioj. Mi petas toleri la inundon dum kelkaj tagoj! :-) -- Tuválkin 14:07, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
La flotnumeroj de File:Aarhus-197s-sl-2-scandia-tw-746365.jpg, File:Aarhus-197s-sl-2-scandia-tw-746364.jpg kaj File:Aarhus-rhus-sporveje-s-sl-610462.jpg estas ja indikitaj kaj ili estas eĉ tiel enkategoriigitaj. Mi ne komprenas, kio estas "neidentigita" tie ĉi. Ĉu temas nur pri la (neidentigeblaj!) kromvagonoj? darkweasel94 14:14, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Jes, pri pluraj senmotoraj vagonoj la numero estas nekonata. Sed ekz. en File:Aarhus-s-sl-1-bw-572908.jpg okazas male: La remorko montras sian numeron (57) dum la tramo restas neidentigita — sed egalas! Kompreneble tio signifas preskaŭ ĉiam neidentigebla — mi preferas la pli klaran vortumon en Lisbon trams with undiscernible number. -- Tuválkin 14:24, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Ah, bone, jes, mi komprenas. darkweasel94 14:30, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Trams in Denmark[edit]

Hello Tuvalkin

I have noticed, that you have been working with categories for Danish trams. Generally it looks fine, but I must say that Category:Trams in Skælskør simply doesn't make sense. Skælskør never had regular tram transport, and the little club Omstigningsklubben only ended up there, because there was an old empty locomotive depot at the railway station. The trams themselves all came from Copenhagen and as such all had trolley pole, not pantographs. However there was never any overhead wire on the old harbor railway they used, so they used batteries instead.

Generally speaking, only Copenhagen, Odense and Aarhus (known as Århus 1948-2010) is considered as (former) tramway cities in Denmark. Of course Skælskør is a city as well, but the trams there was only heritage trams. Today both trams and tracks are gone from Skælskør. Omstigningsklubben still exist, but the trams now belongs to Sporvejsmuseet Skjoldenæsholm. The three bogie cars are in depot for an unseen future, but tram 267 is under restoration.

--Dannebrog Spy (talk) 21:52, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

When I created Category:Trams in Skælskør, I noticed that its “natural” contents match what was in Category:Omstigningsklubben; as you say, Skælskør is in Denmark, and it is neither Copenhagen, nor Odense, nor Århus. The question you raise, and rightly so, can be addressed by adequately categorizing Category:Trams in Skælskør as a museum / enthusiast / touristic operation, not as a commuter transit service. The club’s rolling stock can be simply categorized as second-hand from Copenhagen (thanks for correction about the collection device!) while individual cars can be categorized under their individual categories as Copenhagen rolling stock, once those are created. -- Tuválkin 19:38, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Also a word about Category:Unidentified trams in Denmark. All the pictures are of the same type of motorcar and trailer in Aarhus. In 1944 during the German occupation of Denmark all trams except two trailers was destroyed in a fire set on by German henchmen. In 1945 some of the trams were rebuild and later new was delivered, but they all got the same design, that in the pictures. They all had two axles, but they didn't had any special name. After all, there was only that type. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 21:52, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

I marked as Category:Unidentified trams in Denmark those Århus trams (mostly trailers, but also a few motorcars) whose fleet numbers cannot be seen on the photos. I plan to move those to something like Category:Århus trams with undiscernible number‎ — they are unidentified and, in practice, using only those photos, unidentifiable. That categorization marks those items on photos for which a subcategorization under Category:Århus trams by fleet number‎ (to be created) was attempted, not just overlooked.
Concerning the fleet series of Århus rolling stock, I trust that you or other more learned will fill in the missing data. So far I only know that there’s (at least) two series — the trailers and the motorcars, both single-truck, yellow, and second-hand from Copenhagen. Categories reflecting that will be created to bag the single number categories such as Category:Århus tram 18 etc.
-- Tuválkin 19:38, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
The problem with Category:Trams in Skælskør is, that one could get the idea, that there was other tramways in Skælskør than the club, despite it never being the case. It was simply just a museum tramway and should be categorized at such regardless of place. Category:National Tramway Museum isn't placed in Tram in Crich either, because there was never any other tramways in the village of Crich.
Regarding the trams from the Aarhus I wasn't aware that is was the numbers of them which was unidentified. Creating categories for the types should be easy enough. I recalled that people now tends to simply call them Aarhus cars (Aarhusvogne in Danish), when not involving the pre war cars. But neither the pre war or the post war cars was the second hand from Copenhagen. The post war cars was all build for Aarhus. But they was clearly modeled after the trams that Copenhagen got at the same time like the preserved motorcar 470 and trailer 1065. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 22:12, 27 March 2014 (UTC)


The file "Mapa esquemático METROMED 2013.svg" has been marked for deletion. I was thinking with the modifications will be enough. I have no idea how to create an image. Can you told about some tools?

By the way I am waiting for the website's response to my permission request to use that modificated image. If I get it, which is the next step?

Thank you :D
