KRZu ochre

If would say that   (KRZu ochre) should be ochre crossing ochre, like   (uKRZu)... But I still don't know if that one should be   (KRZu ochre+) or   (mKRZu ochre+) (or something other yet). Right? YLSS (talk) 16:37, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

I’m doing the ochres right now. In principle the "m" should always be present when there are color names included (seems pleonasm, yess) — as also when there are color prefixes. The hanging "+" means that one of the colors is normalred (or blue or one of the greens, depending on the preffix next to "m"). -- Tuválkin 16:56, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
«I’m doing the ochres right now.» — means it will be messy for a bit. -- Tuválkin 16:58, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

well done

BTW, I guess you missed Category:Icons for railway descriptions/stations and stops/towers. YLSS (talk) 11:38, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Hehe, thanks, your bold and accurate work is inspirin — that and the fact that Axpde seems finally to have accepted that BSicons can/should be categorized the same way as any other Commons’ medium. About towers: I think I fell asleep before I could get it going. -- Tuválkin 19:32, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Bad cat move

[1]. Not all trams in Denver are in the Museum. Please restore that cat to this and other similar images. (It could be replaced only by Category:Trams in the Forney Transportation Museum, which would also replace the Trams in Denver cat). Thanks, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 06:06, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

I meant to add Category:Trams in Denver, not replace Category:Forney Transportation Museum with it — thanks for letting me know! I put the latter back and kept the former only for those photos showing what’s obviously a (former) Denver tram — as it says so on the livery. I also add Category:Forney Transportation Museum under the larger Category:Transport in Denver, Colorado, under which also goes Category:Trams in Denver. A new Category:Trams in the Forney Transportation Museum will have to be created sooner or later; its affiliation is trivial. Other cities with more trams and/or more media have their categorization trees more complete. Berlin, Milan, Lisbon, or Moscow — all good starting places. -- Tuválkin 03:42, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Ditto for [2]. You have identified a location, but not the tram model, hence it is still unidentified. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 06:09, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Allow me to disagree: If all media showing trams not fully identified (down to fleet number, even!) were tagged with Category:Unidentified trams it would encompass many thousands of items, obscuring the most urgent cases. I suggest instead that what was done for Category:Lisbon trams with undiscernible number‎ be extended to all categories. In this case Category:Unidentified trams in Denver is what should be created, to be categorized under both Category:Transport in Denver, Colorado and Category:Unidentified trams. -- Tuválkin 03:42, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

File:BSicon TUNNELql.svg

When did you get undelete privileges? (Or is that part of being a filemover?) Useddenim (talk) 00:05, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

I dont have undelete privileges: I just reüploaded those two files, with the same names. ;-) -- Tuválkin 00:13, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Estranho...

Olá, tudo bem? Epá, hoje estive por aqui a categorizar imagens do ML e apercebi-me de um facto... curioso. Não achas estranho que não haja uma única imagem das obras de construção da estação Aeroporto? Quer dizer, esteve um estaleiro enorme mesmo ali ao lado do aeroporto durante pelo menos 5 anos, e com tanto estrangeiro a passar por ali ninguém tirou uma foto e carregou aqui? Isto para não falar das obras do Terreiro do Paço, que tiveram lá o estaleiro durante mais de 10 anos... Cps, EuTuga msg 20:25, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

ex_black

I guess pt:Predefinição:DiagramaSMTUC (one of my favourites, so unique ;) ) has to be reworked somehow, now that ex_black != grey, but I don't know how since it also uses ex_grey... YLSS (talk) 15:40, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Why not? [3][4][5] YLSS (talk) 17:32, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Because I’m dumb. :-\ Thanks for the heads up. Feel free to revert if I let any of these slip. -- Tuválkin 17:43, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

tram categories...

So, I really wonder what you thought of when locating Novopolotsk and Pavlodar in Russia. [6] [7]. --A.Savin 19:22, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Actually I knew where’s Pavlodar, and made that mistake for no good reason. As for Novopolotsk, the name didn’t ring a bell, although it should. Sorry about that. -- Tuválkin 19:28, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Category:Bishopville Volunteer Fire Department (Maryland)

Hello Tuvalkin!

Thank you for your support with this category. Oftenly, the CommonsDelinker-bot is not online. What a disaster. Best regards, High Contrast (talk) 22:14, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

It is no bother to move files to new categories with Cat-a-lot (subcats is trickeir). I only regret I didn’t install it (and Hotcat) much earlier, after I got filemover rights. Cheers, and keep up! -- Tuválkin 00:10, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

PD-shape

Noticed this one:   (exlZOLL). If the Upload Wizard you mean is that extremely Javascript one, then I usually select "It's not my own work", where it is possible to enter a particular license you need. But since one has to fill all the fields each time anew (browsers seem to fail remembering previously entered items), I only use this one for uploading en masse; otherwise, I just enter the needed file name and use the "older" form. YLSS (talk) 15:02, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

BHFq1 teal

Should this one:   (BHFq1 teal) rather be   (BHFr+1 teal), like   (STRr+1)? The several existent   (BHF+1)s seem to follow STR naming. Or do you plan to propose some major renaming? YLSS (talk) 09:29, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

I don’t insist on it. -- Tuválkin 09:35, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice

  1. I don't know how to "look out for any compression" and if I found it, would not know how to fix it.
  2. Not sure how to change all the GIFs to PNG or TIFF in some automated way. Is it just OK if I upload the GIFs.

I will do a wrapper category like you said. At the worst, we can just redo it. It's a Wiki so I won't break anything. TCO (talk) 02:33, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

  1. If it was 1st a JPG which was late converted yo GIF (big mistake) there will be tell tale artifacts: Areas that should be flat all-black or all-white will show a sprinkle of grey pixels here and there — see Template:BadJPEG.
  2. XnView is a great free tool for this and many other image management. If you upload as GIF, someone will some day convert to PNG, anyway, so don’t bother too much.
-- Tuválkin 09:27, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

DR

Hi Tuvalkin, how did you create this DR? Did you use the toolbox-script or did make in manually? I am asking because the resulting DR discussion page is completely irregular, which shouldn't have happening when using the script. --Túrelio (talk) 19:06, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello! Yes, I did it manually — usually I use the script but this time I was thinking of something else. Sorry about the mess. -- Tuválkin 19:10, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
No problem. I have now re-run the DR-script with your rationale. --Túrelio (talk) 19:16, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Portuguese flag

3 of 5 shields are missing when I click on this link. Can you fix it? 18:21, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Must be a transitional rendering issue: All 5 escutcheons are there, the SVG code is valid, and it renders well in all tests I made so far. -- Tuválkin 23:14, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

ÜWc# grey

AFAIK, Useddenim placed these four into Category:Icons for motorway descriptions/generic with purpose, since they are perfectly usable with e.g.   (RP23+1), as in en:Template:Railways in Bridgwater RDT & en:Template:Duckmanton Junction. (However, maybe some redirects with "RP2" root should be created and categorised instead.) YLSS (talk) 18:30, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Regular railway lines are 100px thick, while RP2 roads are 110px thick. Looks good enough with 20px icons, but it is but a hack. Proper RP2 corners should be created, and ÜWc icons should not be categorized as compatible with RP2, which they are not. -- Tuválkin 18:33, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
You do realize that we're talking about a difference of 4/10 of 1 pixel on a x20x icon, don't you? Useddenim (talk) 03:46, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I do. This hack is good for most wikipedias, not so good for :wp:nl. Still, it is not something we can say — that these are the corners for   (RP23+1), by categorizing them. And don’t underrate the accuracy of human eye, also: Remember we have had many cases of misdrawn icons which looked slightly off even at 20px because the 500px original had something like 123.766549 instead of 125… I’m not saying don’t use them — I’m saying, don’t categorize them as RP2. -- Tuválkin 12:40, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi!

I assume that you called the uploader of this file a donkey, not the thing someone sits on. Please be careful with your comments, no matter if you are right or not. Thanks! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:48, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I’m always careful, both with my comments and and with my uploads. If calling this ass an ass (burro, in Portuguese — means both a donkey and, metaphorically, an unastute person) is worth a warning from you, what’s the penaly for uploading a copyrighted file under false pertences causing seven wikipedias to be displaying it illegally for five years? -- Tuválkin 01:26, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
Hold your horses, err donkeys! Wasn't a warning warning in the first place, just a hint. Face-smile.svg --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:51, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

File:BSicon RP4.svg

Is this roadway too narrow, or are other 4-lane icons too wide? Useddenim (talk) 23:27, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

I hope neither — they are all 220 px wide, right? -- Tuválkin 00:06, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Late reply about subpages

You asked: "Is there a way of listing all subpages of a given page?" The "hard" way is to go to Special:PrefixIndex, type in the "prefix" (in this case, "Personality rights/"), and choose the namespace ("Template"). This is equivalent to using the following link: Special:PrefixIndex/Template:Personality rights/. But now (and I don't know if this has changed since you asked the question), the user interface apparently automatically provides a "Subpages" link in the left margin (under "Toolbox") for most types of pages. You should see this if you visit Template:Personality rights. - dcljr (talk) 09:40, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Oh, great! Thanks! -- Tuválkin 17:00, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Gallery

Hi. I know you don't like the new gallery stuff I talked about on the village pump. However a lot of the other feedback has been positive, so I've now gone ahead and created an RFC in an attempt to gather consensus to change the default gallery type (Commons:Requests_for_comment/Changing_default_gallery_mode). I thought I'd leave you a note, as I want to make sure it doesn't appear I'm trying to sneak something by you, or anything like that. Bawolff (talk) 16:21, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

This is not about sneaking. I am sure you mean no harm, and thanks for the heads up. However, your eye-candy will break any attempt at serious use of category view and concomitantly of Cat-a-Lot. That will mean even more uncategorized items — lets see if that is enough to shove back your “improvement” for category view; recent trends (VE, etc.) suggest it wont. I hope I’m wrong and you will never look back to contemplate the day you single-handedly caused Commons to go from a structured repository of media into an unusable pile of trash. -- Tuválkin 17:00, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

File:V. Postoja, Krizna pout Stevanovci.JPG

Hi, thank you for the crop of File:V. Postoja, Krizna pout Stevanovci.JPG. However, it seems that it would be better to keep the frame: it is of historical value and contains an inscription. --Eleassar (t/p) 07:47, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

I avoided the frame because it is not complete in the original image (the cross is missing — or that’s a separate object?) and besides it is three-dimensional, makinging it hard to “correct” the perspective. So I worked on the flat part only, but uploaded it as a separate file to preserve the three-dimensional object information. -- Tuválkin 08:11, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Ok, the new file is very useful and appreciated in any case. Nonetheless, I hope the uploader will take another photo with a better perspective and the full cross some day. --Eleassar (t/p) 09:32, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

No description but subject known

I noticed Commons:Undeletion_requests/Current_requests#File:223661 101503sn.jpg, where you said "Description (name of the musician depicted) was given in the discussion." The undeletion request was closed and I was going to complain, but I cannot find "the discussion" where the name was given. In the DR there was no discussion. --LPfi (talk) 17:58, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

The discussion I meant is here: Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_of_User:Salamjawed. Apparently the name of the band is Salam Jawed. -- Tuválkin 23:22, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
OK. As there are two deletion requests involved, the undeletion request was closed before a link to the discussion was given etcetera, I think this needs more time I am willing to use on it, especially as I have no expertise. I still suppose the "blatantly out of scope" was blatantly ignorant and presumptuous (and the "DR was according to the policies" at least somewhat so). I will probably support undeletion if I happen to notice further discussion. --LPfi (talk) 07:41, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Sound wise, and I agree on all accounts. Sadly I have no knowledge about music in Afghanistan, other that what I managed to learn while investigating these files. -- Tuválkin 08:35, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello in this moment i feel very confused

¿How are you Tuvalkin?... I prefer speak in Spanish... Desde hace tiempo he tratado de hacer un collage con fotos o imágenes mas representativas de la ciudad de Cali, no había encontrado alguien que me ayudara en Wikipedia porque esto se vera raro pero apenas hace un mes me entere que existe el botón de discusión en el cual uno puedo contactar otros usuarios, debatir problemas, etc. Gracias a la ayuda de el usuario Jmvkrecords pude responder muchos interrogantes, por ejemplo: Yo hacia un collage (con fotos tomadas de paginas como por ejemplo: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?s=09d764c86ed30807d0b30b2afabf1a0f&f=3551) entonces los collages eran borrados, entonces yo me enojaba ya que dedicaba mucho tiempo a estos, pero, este usuario me explico que no podía utilizar estas imágenes de cualquier pagina, bueno en fin, el tema me quedo claro. Otro usuario me explico que los collages ya subidos tenían que borrarse, se borraron unos pero otros no entonces yo postule este https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cali-moderna.jpg pero no supe explicar porque lo nomine para borrarlo. Quiero que me expliques algo, pero, primero yo te explico que casi todas esas imágenes son tomadas de otras paginas por eso lo postule, estoy en proceso de crear nuevos collages esperando claro esta, que estos estén en regla. Ahora si, ¿por que tu en la respuesta que me das aquí https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Cali-moderna.jpg, sugieres que se sustituya en la pagina con miniaturas de las imágenes no problemáticas? NO ENTENDÍ. A lo que te refieres es que por ejemplo este collage de florencia https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Collage_Firenze.jpg en donde dice fuente hay unas imágenes en miniatura a eso te refieres?. Gracias por tu tiempo y dedicación sobre mi tema --Jhosimar-Murillo (talk) 02:32, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

URLs for cruise pictures

I'm glad you're adding these; finding them by hand would be a pain but we need them , if for no other reason than to confirm they are on the site. I'll let you know when I find non-working links. Dankarl (talk) 16:38, 9 October 2013 (UTC) File:Port Call in Alaska.jpg - the link gives the following error message: The requested URL: http://www.un-cruise.com/stuff/contentmgr/files/0/02cb8dd7594a9c7ec47d961f276cde61/hiresimage/11_historic_port.jpg could not be found.

Trams em sítios desconhecidos de Lisboa

Olá Tuvalkin, este eléctrico não está exactamente no sítio mais desconhecido de Lisboa. ;) Aquilo ao lado dele é o São Carlos, e à direita é a antiga Comédia Portuguesa, depois boate Nina, depois bar de travecas, e que no ano da foto era o Rock in Chiado, e agora não sei o que é. --- Darwin Ahoy! 21:52, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Pois é, essa foto e muitas outras — movi para essa categoria nova os elétricos q estavam em Category:Streets in Lisbon, que está muito cheia (coisas do Tm…). Espero em breve deixá-la vazia, mas obrigado pela dica! -- Tuválkin 01:18, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

rotação

Já agora, fazes alguma ideia se aquela rotação que pediste dá para fazer em lossless? É que tive de usar o GIMP, que a ferramenta que eles aconselhavam n faz rotações de 1%. Não sei se a qualidade da imagem baixou (o tamanho minguou bastante, quase para metade).

Abraço,--- Darwin Ahoy! 21:52, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

(Desculpa ter-te partido a posta.) Rotações lossless só mesmo a 90° ou a 180°, por que mantêm o “mosaico” dos píxeis (e mesmo assim, isto é pra encurtar). E mesmo qd ñ é JPG, qq rotação em outros ângulos implica mexidas na imagem, por vezes grandes, já q ficam sempre 4 triângulos q é necessário aparar fora, perdendo-se detalhes às vezes importantes. Uma hipótese para casos extremos é carregar a imagem rodada/aparada em separado (compara esta com esta), marcando o original “torto” como Category:Dutch angle. Não sei qual a das muitas rotações q eu encomendei te referes, ando sempre nisso, mas não te rales muito com elas — planeio ir a todas se lá ninguém chegar primeiro. -- Tuválkin 01:18, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Era esta. Não sei se a qualidade ficou pior, a mim parece-me igual. :P --- Darwin Ahoy! 02:51, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Foto do metro inglês

Já agora, se te interessar, dá um saltinho aqui e dá a tua opinião sobre a foto do metro que eu pedi para restaurar. Não sei se a consegues ver, se não conseguires diz que eu faço o upload para qualquer lado. Aquela estação de metro que o Ultra diz ser "única" a mim parece-me um bocado feiinha e desinteressante, mas a foto de facto mostra um ângulo da estação que não se vê em nenhuma das outras que estão na categoria. --- Darwin Ahoy! 02:51, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Trams in Maputo?

Oi Tuvalkin, dei com esta imagem que mostra a existência de algum tipo de transporte sobre carris em Lourenço Marques, no início do século 20, que não estava catalogada nesse âmbito, e talvez te interesse. Abraço, --- Darwin Ahoy! 23:03, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Outra - Parecem ser eléctricos ou trolleys.--- Darwin Ahoy! 23:21, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Olá e muito obrigado pela dica! Sim, existiram elétricos em Maputo até certa altura. Sabia disso por acaso: Quando inaugurarm o de Sintra em 1904 algum material (folhetos, ações?, já não sei) mostrava, por “engano”, imagens do «Electrico de Lourenço Marques». Neste postal deve ser pré-eletrificação (a cavalo, ou a vapor?), já que não tem cabo sobre a via, mas o outro já tem. -- Tuválkin 01:31, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
Já achei os tais eléctricos, estão nas fotos do Rufino que estive a carregar, se tiveres curiosidade vai à categoria category:Trams in Lourenço Marques ("Trams in Maputo" era demasiado anacrónico).--- Darwin Ahoy! 03:05, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Re:Foto de convenção do P.M.D.B.

Oi Tuvalkin! Na foto aparece Teresa Surita, prefeita de Boa Vista, uma capital brasileira. Então, o argumento de que a foto só tem pessoas anônimos é inválido.

Carruagem do Sud Express

  • Quando escrevo os nomes dos ficheiros em inglês, é manter tanto quanto possível os termos em inglês europeu... sinceramente, até julgo que não tem assim tanta importância, é mais tipo uma mania minha, uma questão de opinião. A minha preferência baseia-se principalmente no facto de terem sido os britânicos os pioneiros nos caminhos de ferro, pelo que penso que os termos que eles utilizam são mais adequados. Mas, como disse, isto é só uma questão de opinião, e não vejo qualquer problema em ser mudado, especialmente se for mais adequado à imagem. Boas festas.

images with borders template

re: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Remove_border/en&oldid=112696340&diff=prev

I'm surprised you felt like the previous state of the template was better formatted, and easier to read, also you mentioned that i removed important text, which I did not, rather I rewrote it for clarity and rearranged the sections so it was easier to read. The current version does not read in a natural way, and has too much text, while I understand there is some complexity involved, a block of text that big will just be ignored by many users, editing for clarity would really help.
Jaredzimmerman (WMF) (talk) 05:34, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

  • The part you erased is very important — that’s not rewriting for clarity, that’s throwing stuff away: If the current version is unclear, lets clarify it, but lets not erase important caveats that were added through years of experience with this template. Any change, such as the one you tried to push, should be discussed in the talk page first.
  • The SMALL tag makes the font smaller but keeps the leading at normal height (thanks to your employer’s insisting on pushing Vector down our throats), making the text harder to read (“fine print”) without making the box more compact.
  • Finally, your argument that something will be «ignored by many users», while used to justify all kinds of dumbing down, is irrelevant here, as this warning is supposed to attract the attention of involved and careful users: Removing borders can be a serious job, and whoever doesn’t want to read the whole deal about it is probably not cut (pun not intentional) to the task.

Category:Washington Oakes

I removed Category:Things named after oaks, which you recently added. It's named from Oakes Avenue, which in turn is named after Thomas Fletcher Oakes. Perhaps his surname came from the tree, but saying the name of the retirement home does is quite a stretch. - Jmabel ! talk 16:15, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Well, you can guess how I ended here. Trying to categorize a Lisbon street named after a guy whose surname means oak in Portuguese — and I got carried away. Ideally, of course, this category about a retirement home will/should be categorized under Category:things named after Oakes Avenue (Everett, Washington), in turn categorized under Category:Oakes Avenue (Everett, Washington), in turn categorized under Category:Things named after Thomas Fletcher Oakes, in turn categorized under Category:Thomas Fletcher Oakes, in turn categorized under Category:Oakes (surname), in turn categorized under Category:Things named after oaks. But there are gaps in this breadcrumb trail, of course. -- Tuválkin 16:22, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
But we don't even know for sure that Thomas Fletcher Oakes' name came from the tree, rather than being (for example) an anglicization of the German (sometimes Jewish) name "Ochs", or who knows what else. - Jmabel ! talk 23:00, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
Fair point. It should be researched, and probably not too hard to look up. Any legitimate relationship can be the base for categorization, while surely any spurious one should not. -- Tuválkin 01:21, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Your recent behavior at COM:UD is intimidation/harassment and harassment of another user, which is not permitted on Commons. This is not the first sort of incident where you've acted inappropriately like this, and I've warned you about it before. Given your history here, you really ought know better; I've blocked you for 3 days so you can take a break and familiarize yourself with our civility policies. -FASTILY 21:27, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Three days, huh? Well, you rightly said that there was some intimidation/harassment going on at the Anabel_a.jpg undelete request: Three admins piling up on me over bogus tone concerns, and now a forth comes to block me. Nice to see you took the time you usually lack when closing DRs to block me, Fastily. Thank you, all, for being obvious in your cliquishness. -- Tuválkin 23:42, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Since you're clearly not interested in using your talk page constructively while blocked, I've revoked your talk page access.

Two categories!

hi. what u think about this two categories: Category:Children not at home in nights and Category:People taking bought stuff to home . i think will be delete.--Sonia Sevilla (talk) 11:25, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello, and sorry I didn’t reply before. Sometimes categories are more useful than they seem at first time. If you want my opinion, a good way to keep your categories from being deteled hastily by others is to make sure that:
  1. The new category is not a duplicate of another already existing one, with a slightly different name.
  2. The new category name is correct English (and also any other language it may include).
  3. The new category name matches the wording used by similar categories.
  4. There is content for any new category you create — not only the one or few images you created the new category for. (F.i., when I created Category:Reading in bed I need it for this image, but I searched a couple dozen more and categorized them with the new category, too.)
  5. The new category is linked to others, both as child and parent: Nothing says more that a new category is useful than its integration in the existing multi-tree structure, even if it doesn’t contain many media items.

(…)

Meanwhile I notice that both Category:Children not at home in nights and Category:People taking bought stuff to home were created and not deleted, so congratulations! I’d still advise you to go through the topics above, though. Good categorization and good categories is one of the most important aspects of curating — without it Commons would be a scarcely usable heap of files. -- Tuválkin 01:38, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Lake houses

A house being in a city, town, neighborhood, or street with "lake" in the name does not necessarily make it a "lake house". Thanks for your attention. -- Infrogmation (talk) 20:59, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

You’re right, Infrogmation. Most of the items currently (still) at Category:Lake houses were added not by design but via unadverted use of the "all" feature in Cat-a-lot, due probably to not enough coffee. I undid immediately the most obvious cases, and will be fixing the remaining ones one-by-one using the gallery view for that category. Thanks for noticing. -- Tuválkin 21:54, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
I found a similar problem with the three files in Category:Lake Bridenthal house (Wymore, Nebraska); in that case, "Lake" was the builder's given name. When I created the category, I included a note to that effect, with a link to the information source, in the hope that it'd keep this sort of thing from happening. Unfortunately...

Blue pics

Hi Tuvalkin - many thanks for correcting File:Ecuador-234.jpg! There are a number of other files with the same problem, by the same uploader, involving most (but not all) of the files dated from 7 December 2009 (File:Chimborazo2004.jpg) back to 10 November 2009 (File:Altensteinia virescens.jpg); scroll to near the end of his File list page 1. Can you fix these too please, or give me details of how to fix them please? (I'd do it if I knew how, but I don't). Thanks again! - MPF (talk) 21:26, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Rotate earth

Sorry, that was a mistake. I was seeing what would happen if I rotated the mage. I thought it would affect only my view of it. Please undo my action. Thank you. Michael J (talk) 23:31, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Moving to subcategories

I appreciate the creation of subcategories per country. However the sort parameter is often left alone. For example: 2008 in tram transport|France --> 2008 in tram transport in France|France. While for it should be 2008 in tram transport in France|Lyon for trams in Lyon. I spend a lot of time setting the rigth sort parameter so that it is easier to move the file later on the a subcategory when there are enough files. Smiley.toerist (talk) 10:23, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

You’re right, of course. I blame Cat-a-Lot for copying the keys, but I’ll be more careful in the future. -- Tuválkin 10:30, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Olive Branch

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)

derivativeFX

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)

Category:Unidentified trams in Europe

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

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)

Help

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

Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed. For the time being, I have volunteered to operate a MiszaBot clone (running the exact same code). With that said, your input would be appreciated at Commons:Bots/Requests/ArchiveBot 1.

Martin de Bataille

According to the french article fr:Jean-Baptiste Martin (peintre) the painter died in 1735, so he could not have painted it. "Martin de Bataille" is not his real name, but an alias because he painted a lot of battles (Bataille). He has a brother fr:Pierre-Denis Martin (1663-1742). Buy the way the pictures are not exactly the same. A boat is added on the rigth and it is cropped. My guess is that his brother copied the painting and added some minor changes.

File:BSicon bvABZg+r-ABZg+l.svg

Do you still need this one? It's kinda bad drawn... And there's a big question how to name these "b" icons: the straight lines can be here or there... YLSS (talk) 08:03, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

YLSS, I corrected the SVG code to look better in any rendering. Yes, I think it is a needed proof of concept, especially to compare   (bvABZg+r-ABZg+l) with   (vABZg+r-ABZg+l), and maybe to make a case of one-and-half wide (750 px) icons. As for the name, while I agree with you that b-width icon names are not an easy thing, I think that this one is correct (and that names like   (bvWSL-BS2+r) are not…), and would gladly discuss it that matter at Talk:BSicon/Renaming. -- Tuválkin 04:12, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
And how are you planning to differentiate between the similar cases where the separation between the lines is not 250px but 500px or 750px? (No, I'm ready to discuss that in a centalized way... I'm too scared of the consequences... I would be pretty happy with BSicon v-STR+r.svgBSicon v-STR.svg BSicon vSTR+l-.svgBSicon vSTR-.svg , with the geometry of   (v-STR+r) modified to circular arcs.)
