Possibly useless[edit]

Some users have no resources against boredom. What the heck means this spam, that we can include into 1.500.000 pics? Geograv 14:20, 24 September 2007 (UTC)


I think we need to add translations for this template in same fashion as for license templates. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:48, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Very good Idea. I was just looking how to do this. But I am not very good in this Template formating.
The Text for German (DE) could be:
A geocoded location could be added to this image.
Eine geografische Position kann zu diesem Bild hinzugefügt werden.
Visit Commons:Geocoding for information on how to add coordinates.
Besuche Commons: Geocoding um zu erfahren wie Du einfach Koordinaten ermitteln und hinzufügen kannst.

I integrated subsites for de en and es and so it is easy over the /lang subsite to make new translation. I hope for some more input! HBR (talk) 22:49, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

less pictures in category[edit]

To make it more easy to find pictures witch someone knows, it should be possible to make subcategorys in the category:locations possible, like germany oder japan and so on. i would like to do this with a parameter. can someone help to implement this? HBR (talk) 02:39, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

If the country or place is already known and present in any of the categories, you could use CatScan:
That would be much easier than manually adding a parameter and a whole new category tree. --Slomox (talk) 12:43, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Hello Slomox, you are right. This is a much better way! HBR (talk) 21:56, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
tools:~para/GeoCommons/geocodingtodo.php is another option. In Special:Preferences (Gadges), you can have a link to the tool added to all categories. -- User:Docu at 05:01, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


Please add these: [[id:Templat:Coord missing]] [[mk:Шаблон:Нема координати]] [[zh:Template:Coord missing]]

Some bug with non-ASCII characters[edit]

Hello, I uploaded File:Kochertalbrücke01crop 2011-04-17.jpg and then used


but I get the error message

Wikimedia Commons does not yet have a media file called Kochertalbrücke01crop 2011-04-17.jpg.

Toolserver status is SNAFU, and other toolserver scripts have up-to-date content. Might there be an Umlaut problem in the script? -- KlausFoehl (talk) 12:53, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Probably a UTF-8 encoding problem. [[user:Akoopal] is working on a more general improved version of the tool. He'll probably tackle this problem too. Multichill (talk) 14:07, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
