Forgotten old set[edit]

At Category:Icons for railway descriptions/set 2CA05A there were 15 icons not yet fully recategorized. ✓ All done now. -- Tuválkin 10:52, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

I did not forget about it! I removed half of items from it a couple of days ago while renaming them, and was planning on recategorising the rest — indeed, you stole from me the pleasure of getting rid of it!! Still, thanks ;) YLSS (talk) 13:44, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, sorry about that! Indeed after I did it I thought that this might be the case, but sadly there's no simple way of checking the history of all affluent pages of a given page. Anyway, the merit is yours, of course! -- Tuválkin 14:04, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Set "o": new light green from w:de[edit]

Template BSo-sol-header existed since december 2010 (used in a few infoboxes, none with a route diagram) but on january 2014 (long after the “other colors” of BSicons were fully discussed and standartized) user MBxd1 (talk · contribs) decided to change its color from      to      and to create a new set o to categorize the newly created light green icons in use in de:Oberleitungsbus Wuhlehirsk.

In view of the (both actual and percieved) role w:de has had in the BSicon project, input is necessary to deal with this situation. I started a discussion at de:Diskussion:Oberleitungsbus Wuhlehirsk#Farben, but what concerns Commons should be discussed here.

Shouldn't these new icons be in Category:Icons for railway descriptions/set 61A375? Useddenim (talk) 17:33, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
IMHO, they shouldn't be anywhere... You were too condescending, Tuválkin... YLSS (talk) 19:50, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
The color of template BSo-sol-header was initially not related to colors of railway icons. It was adapted to the color of trolleybus lines in maps. As this is a local template, the change of color cannot be discussed here. It was caused by an adaption to the mainly used color in maps.
The railway icons are not the preferred option for trolleybus lines, but they are used in some cases. de:Oberleitungsbus Wuhlehirsk was one of them, according to practice in German Wikipedia with the blue icons of tramway lines. When this article needed an update in January 2014 (when a new map made the table nearly redundant), I decided to keep it, but to adapt to the color of trolleybus lines in maps. The color of the template was then adapted to that of the icons. A change to other green icons would have been possible, but they were either already used for completely different purposes or too bright. Of course this can be changed again - also for the maps.
Unfortunately there is no real discussion on de:Diskussion:Oberleitungsbus Wuhlehirsk#Farben, but only a table with icons. This does not help anything. --MBxd1 (talk) 20:13, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
How about changing the icons to set g? It is already quite extensive. As far as I know, these icons are not used at de.wp at all, but only in en.wp for former (unwatered) canals – so it would be completely OK to re-use them for this purpose. (The colour sets do not need to be assigned strictly to a single purpose: even the "u" set is used both for U-Bahn lines and for canals!) YLSS (talk) 20:33, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Set g is too bright, it is not well visible in maps. I would prefer set f, but it is already used for cycling routes in de.wp. --MBxd1 (talk) 21:04, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
