Hello, Worldantiques!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

where was picture taken?[edit]

Where was File:Ashiko cleats.JPG taken? Is it in a museum or other public collection? 69.119.144.253 19:44, 9 June 2010 (UTC) The ashiko are from a private collection, there are more pictures here http://s831.photobucket.com/albums/zz238/estcrh/ninja%20type%20items/ {{samuraiantiqueworld.com (talk) 22:34, 9 June 2010 (UTC)}}

User:Samuraiantiqueworld/Japanese Kikko armor[edit]

Kikko is a type of Japanese (samurai) armor made from small iron or hardened leather hexagon plates. Kikko is a lightweight portable folding (tatami) armor and is the Japanese version of brigandine. The kikko was attached to clothing by sewing the kikko to cloth through holes drilled through the kikko, or the kikko could be sewn between two layers of cloth and hidden from sight by sewing around each individual piece of kikko and enclosing the kikko in individual compartments. The kikko could be attached to each other by links of chain (kusari) through holes drilled in the kikko. Kikko was used in traditional armor (kikko gusoku) and kikko armored clothing was also made. Kikko armor was made for every class of samurai, from high level to low level.


Just a note: If you finished your work in usernamespace, see Special:PrefixIndex/User:Samuraiantiqueworld/, you can move your galleries to the gallerie namespace. But please reduce the 'brief description of the subject' a little bit. This is a multilingual project with only very, very short descriptions in various languages. Long descriptions are difficult to handle and should rather go to Wikipedia with a [[:en:Wikipedia|wikilink]] to the subjects wikipedia article where all the text information is written then. --Martin H. (talk) 22:02, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Martin, thanks for the advice, I plan on using my usernamespace work to transfer to a wikipedia article..I will certainly leave just a brief description when I move to gallerie namespace any advice is appreciated... thanks samuraiantiqueworld.com (talk) 22:24, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Answer from Xenophon concerning the chainmail category[edit]

With 130 images the Chainmail-Category had grown relatively large. All the images I removed from this category, can easily be found in the Chainmail-Subcategory "Japanese chain mail". That´s what subcategories are made for: Images can more easily be found and categories don´t get to fat. Happy new Year from Xenophon (talk) 12.00, 01 January 2011 ( UTC )

  • Of course there is no such a thing as a limit of images for any category. It´s more a matter of common sense to make categories as user friendly as possible - therefore a different category for "Japanese chain mail" - and there is no need to put the very same images in the overlaying category "Chainmail". I agree with you that historical chainmail should be separated from all kinds of modern ones - why not create a category "Historical chainmail" and leave all the others in the "Chainmail"-category ? Apart from that it would be nice to discuss my category changes before you undo them all - after all it´s some work! Xenophon (talk) 18.36, 06 January 2011 ( UTC )

File:Sake.gift.certificate.samurai.woodblock.print.jpg[edit]

dear user/editor;

this image File:Sake.gift.certificate.samurai.woodblock.print.jpg

depicts a SAMURAI; therefore it belongs in the category of samurai images.

being commercial art does not make it either more, or less "historic"; it is a taisho-era popular culture depiction of a samurai warrior on horseback, framed with several samurai weapons.

it is also a (woodblock) print, & an antique; therefore "historical prints of samurai". i admit that the "samurai" category could use further organization, feel free to improve the sub-categorizations.

BUT please stop de-listing this file from a category in which it clearly belongs.

arigato.

Categorization[edit]

Hello! Why include in category Armour of Russia illustration of helmets, if exists categories Military helmets of Russia and Russian medieval helmets? And what for add there not russian origin armour, for example 1 - West Europe, 2 - Georgia? In my opinion, this category must contain only russian-made armours.

And also - Battle axes of Russia. Bardiche is not kind of battle axe. And Ball and chain flails of Russia, according to russian terminology, "Ball and chain flail" is incorrect name. Лапоть (talk) 10:12, 1 October 2012 (UTC).

  • Лапоть, I added Category:Russian medieval helmets‎ to Category:Armour of Russia, feel free to remove helmets that are not Russian. As for Bardiche I was using this description ("Bardiche, a Russian form of pole-ax with a long cutting edge."), what would you suggest instead? As for ball and chain flail that is the English term, what is the Russian term?samuraiantiqueworld (talk) 10:26, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
    • OK. In russian weaponology, bardiche is special type of pole weapons, because it have two points of fixing to handle (not one, as axe). One-handed flails have name «kisten'» («кистень» - russian), «kiścień» (polish), «kistän» («кистән» - tatar). This weapon hardly ever has chain, usually leather strap. Examples: [1], [2] (only "balls"), [3] (chain and handle is new). Лапоть (talk) 10:59, 1 October 2012 (UTC).

Hello[edit]

Hey samuraiantiqueworld, I am writing to you here because I was not sure you would get a message on Wikipedia. I am having some difficulties currently on Wikipedia and could use your help. I recently found out that you were blocked, if I was aware of what was happening I would have supported you unfortunately I was just an occasional Wiki user and was anon at the time. I went over the details of your block and it is perfectly obvious that you were set up by the people who supported your block, the ones from FA especially (you know who I am referring to). The person who caused this in the first place (b rabbit) has been BANNED!! were you aware of this? I did some digging and found that the admin (deathstar) who banned you had dealings with members of the group before and after you were banned, this does not seem right, a non involved admin should have been making the decision. I do not understand why you have not appealed your block, there is no way you would not be unblocked, I can see that you did nothing to provoke the vicious attack that substituted as a discussion when you were blocked. As a side note I have been accused of being a sock puppet of you by some editors who want to make significant changes to the kabuto article, this article and the rest of the Japanese armor and weapons articles that you created and or worked on are the best reference materials in the world that I know of, I think removing the images would ruin the value of the articles and have protested that type of editing. Also one of the same editors is trying to change the name of the jutte article to jitte, I know that there is a separate weapon called jitte, I was wondering if you have any images that you would post on commons (thats the help I need).Darkness walks (talk) 03:31, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Hello Darkness, I have had no intention of editing again on Wiki, its full of cretins and trolls with no real knowledge of the subjects that they editing. I much prefer to work on Wiki commons, its much more civilized. Thanks for your comments, I am sure that I would eventually be unblocked it I did appeal but your information is interesting, I will look into that when I get a chance. I see what is happening on Wiki, konja is very obsessive and rude, and also completely wrong, a gunto is a machine made blade, very frowned upon in nihonto circles, I would have removed the image as well, how could anyone tell what kind of sword that is, it may as well be a German sword, all you can tell is that it is a sword. As for jutte and jitte, they are two separate weapons. Older references often use jitte for all weapons of that type but since there is a weapon called jitte it would be problematic to call two weapons by that name. A jitte is a collapsible hand held parring weapon with a shear like point, I cant remember if I have an image of one available, I will have to look. There is a "Koto period" when it comes to swords, its right there in the reference, konja again is wrong, and on the karuta article it is linked to the Wiki article. I will take a look at the other edits Konja has made if I have time.samuraiantiqueworld (talk) 04:44, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Hello Darkness, problem solved, I already had an image of a jitte uploaded, it was incorrectly labeled as a marohoshi, research shows that the marohoshi had a hinge at the blade allowing the blade to fold as well as the guard, it is now called a karakuri jitte which comes from p.36 of Serge Mol's book "Classical Weapons of Japan". A standard jitte did not fold so it did not have a stopper, this one has the folding hand guard and stopper, hope this helps, I will create a new category called "Jitte" and a sub category for the karakuri jitte.samuraiantiqueworld (talk) 06:51, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

    • Jameslwoodward, thats not nice, you block an editor with 15,000+ edits without even discussing it with me first? You say I should "open a new account" when I can simply change my name?? What up with that, if the situation were reversed I would not treat you like that...Im just saying....samuraiantiqueworld (talk) 14:46, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Sorry about the abrupt action -- please realize that Commons Admins have vastly more to do than we have time for -- we delete around 2,000 pages every day and have a variety of other tasks as well. We get new accounts with bad names two or three times a week. Sorry for any confusion -- "open a new account" is easier for newbies, so it is in the script -- you are obviously experienced enough to know that you can just change your name. .     Jim . . . .

    • Jameslwoodward, thanks for the reply, I realize you guys are busy but I have had this name for over 3yrs, a message asking me to change my name would have been appropriate / sufficient, this is not end of the world type stuff, and how can I change it if I am blocked???samuraiantiqueworld (talk) 16:12, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi Samuraiantiqueworld. Firstly I would like to make a personal apology for Jim's action here as one of our administrators. In my view he is taking an over-literal approach to the policy on user names, in particular your use of this account in no way damages Wikimedia Commons and your uploads are in scope, educational and (for those that I have reviewed) are not in any way promotional apart from mentioning "Samuraiantiqueworld". The indefinite block of your account was unnecessarily agressive and I am not surprised you are upset, anyone would be. A thread has been raised on Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/User_problems#Obvious_username_violation and if you have anything you would like to say in that conversation please put your remarks here and I will copy them on. In the meantime I suggest that if you have a preferred alternative name that Jim unblocks this account so that you can raise a request for yourself at COM:CHU. Again, I am very sorry to see this behaviour from one of our most experienced administrators. Thanks -- (talk) 17:44, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

I am pleased to say that you have now been unblocked. I suggest you follow the procedure at Changing username and the folks there can advise if a new name you fancy is within policy or not. Thank you for your contributions over the last 3 years, I am sorry that a matter housekeeping was not handled better. -- (talk) 17:58, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Unblocked[edit]

I've unblocked this account. There is no immediate need for a block here. We can discuss this and I'm sure we'll find a solution. If a rename is ok for you I can help with that. --Dschwen (talk) 17:55, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Renames of LACMA photos[edit]

Hi, I can see you are making some filenames in Category:Images from LACMA uploaded by Fæ more accurate, though in recent examples you have dropped the LACMA name and accession number from the name. Could you keep this in please? The format of the batch uploads, including the accession number as the only unique number we have for each artefact, is as agreed by community consensus at Commons:Batch_uploading/Los_Angeles_County_Museum_of_Public_Art. Thanks -- (talk) 21:12, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

    • Thanks for letting me know that, they should all be corrected now, if not let me know, thanks.samuraiantiqueworld (talk) 22:14, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
