New FP gallery page “Places/Cemeteries”[edit]

On the base of an idea suggested by Ikan and Charles (see here), I have created a new Featured Pictures gallery page Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Cemeteries and collected on it the FPs of cemeteries and graveyards which were previously scattered over the gallery pages Places/Other, Places/Settlements, Architecture/Religious buildings and others. I hope this is OK for all of you. I have added only photos which show larger views of several graves; for pictures showing individual monuments and memorials (including solitary graves), we will continue to use the Monuments and memorials section, and for details of grave sculptures the different sections of the Objects/Sculptures gallery page.

The icon on top of the new gallery page is not distinct enough, I will exchange it soon by a more specific one. If you find other problems or errors, just tell me about them or correct them yourself ;–). Best, --Aristeas (talk) 16:56, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Confusing template[edit]

On a current nomination I incorrectly assumed Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Oversaturated was an oppose vote by Basile Morin. If it confused me (been here for years) it will likely confuse others. Should we eliminate this template? Charlesjsharp (talk) 11:41, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Symbol delete vote.svg No, because it's currently used in a bunch of (previous) nominations.
This template is like Symbol wtf vote.svg Overprocessed. The color is different from Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- Basile Morin (talk) 11:49, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
the colour is only slightly different - but it is the minus sign that I think is wrong. Charlesjsharp (talk) 12:22, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No worry, the FPC bot counts well at the end of the voting period. Possibly we can discuss the icon/pictogram on the talk page of the template (but please don't choose Symbol flower.svg {{Flower}}'s Face-grin.svg) -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:38, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Given the file name and description of File:Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg, Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg was indeed originally intended as an oppose vote. We don't use it like that, which is confusing because Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg is very similar to the icon used in Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose (which is recognized as a vote by the bot). I think we should have consistent icons for comment templates like Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Oversaturated, Symbol wtf vote.svg Overprocessed and whatever else we have. How about File:Pictogram voting comment (orange).svg, which is used by Pictogram voting comment (orange).svg Comment (recently changed from the grey File:Pictogram voting comment.svg).

It makes sens to me. There's also File:Symbol problem vote.svg. Tests added in Template talk:Oversaturated#Icon -- Basile Morin (talk) 16:02, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist  :-) Basile Morin (talk) 12:40, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wouldn't it address all concerns to simply replace the image the template uses to be the same as {{Overprocessed}}? If it's not supposed to be counted as an oppose vote, it probably shouldn't be nearly identical to an oppose vote, and its usage seems to be more similar to {{Overexposed}} than {{Oppose}} anyway. — Rhododendrites talk |  16:39, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
