If I somehow missed the advisory on the County webpage that states that the mapping is in the public domain, please provide the link and we can clear this up. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 18:52, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
You're probably right, I was just hoping that when a municipality releases a map, it is in the public domain, like a bylaw. 117Avenue (talk) 07:54, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
In some countries, that's true. Unfortunately, that's not the case in Canada, unless a municipality expressly decides to do so. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 17:54, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

File:ABelection poll.jpg[edit]

Hello. Not trying to be difficult here, I'm just not sure that your proposed category works. I thought I would leave you a note and we can chat about it and try and figure out something. There seem to be two issues here:

1) The 2012 elections category: As far as I know (and correct me if I am wrong), there are no fixed election dates in Alberta. So while the election must occur sometime before March 2013, it could theoretically occur in 2011, 2012 or even 2013. While pundits might expect it in 2012, we don't that will be the case this far out. We tend not to categorize by year when things are so speculative. Moreover, the image doesn't really pertain to the election per se. Yes, it shows opinion polls, which are fodder for election talk. However, the graph relates to the next provincial election much in the same way that all politics pertains to elections. The elections categories are really intended to contain media respecting the elections themselves, not the years leading up to the elections. Otherwise, if the latter were the case, we'd be putting every image since 2008 of Danielle Smith talking at a banquet, every image of Stelmach at a ceremony, etc. into the elections category, because the politicians typically act and behave with the next election in mind. And then the category would cease to be about the election and would be more about politics generally.

2) 2010 in Alberta - You are absolutely correct that the graph pertains to 2008 and 2009 as well. Since it doesn't make sense (as you implied in your edit summary) to categorize in multiple year categories (and we usually don't do that for graphs of this type that span a number of years), we typically do one of three things: categorize it in the year in which the data culminates (and the graph was made), put it in a decades category instead (in this case, it would be in both Category:Alberta in the 2000s and Category:Alberta in the 2010s), or just not put it in a year/decade category. My approach has usually (IIRC) been to choose the first approach, but I am not particularly fussed if you prefer a different one.--Skeezix1000 (talk) 18:15, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

You're right that the 28th Alberta general election, does not have a set date, which is why it isn't in a year category on Wikipedia, but it is very likely to be 2012. I was just hoping I could get away with it here. The problem I have with placing it in a single year category, is that it could span five years. Is it all right to place it in three year categories? 117Avenue (talk) 03:04, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Barrel racing pic[edit]

Hi 117, when you get the copyright stuff cleared up for File:Barrel-Racing-Szmurlo.jpg, can you replace the "correct" version in all the articles it's in over at en.wikipedia? We have it in about 5 or 6 places. Thanks! Montanabw (talk) 20:49, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

I already uploaded a good version, the old version just needs to be deleted. Is the tag not clear? 117Avenue (talk) 00:09, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Well that sucks. I suppose there's no way to prove that they were CC when I uploaded them? 117Avenue (talk) 23:03, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately not. But are you sure that you took indeed their license? It's written below all the data about certain clip, below tags, last line. Masur (talk) 06:32, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I'm sure I saw the correct licence. I found another one, but unfortunately it's too dark to use. 117Avenue (talk) 23:39, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Vancouver photo montage.jpg[edit]

Please add a proper attribution of the original authors of the source images, either in the author field or behind each image link. In the current state the compilation is a copyvio due to missing attribution. Please be careful on selecting a license for such a compilation, at least one source image had an attribution-sharealike license but you used a less restrictive attribution license. I don't think the {{User}} template is intended to be placed on image description pages, better use a standard wikilink to your page. --Denniss (talk) 05:35, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I actually thought the sharealike licence was a less restrictive licence. I've got to give myself a refresher with licences, thanks. 117Avenue (talk) 04:19, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Fort Edmonton[edit]

Hello, 117Avenue! I moved File:Fort Edmonton 1800.jpg to Category:Fort Edmonton, rather than copying it, because the (replica) Fort is inside the Park and likewise for the corresponding categories. But no big deal: that shot doesn’t give much of a view of the structure itself, and IIANM the rest of the Fort files are historical pictures of the original building.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 09:27, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

  • I had another look at the Fort category, and all its content is indeed historic, relating to the original site on or near the present Legislature grounds. So I don’t think it really belongs in the Park at all; a “See also category” template is already there. Moreover, ISTM Category:Parks in Edmonton & Category:Museums and galleries in Edmonton apply to the Park but not the original site, which shouldn‘t be inheriting them. What do you think? I’ll drop a line to Steve Morgan as well, since he created the Park cat and added the Fort cat to it.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 21:50, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes, they should probably be two different things, just like on the English Wikipedia. 117Avenue (talk) 23:27, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
That sounds fine to me. I now realize that I should not have put the Fort cat into the Park cat. Steve Morgan (talk) 08:00, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Category:Athabasca_Landing[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg Category:Athabasca_Landing has been listed at Commons:Categories for discussion so that the community can discuss ways in which it should be changed. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this category, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for discussion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it. If the category is up for deletion because it has been superseded, consider the notion that although the category may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new category.

In all cases, please do not take the category discussion personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!

Geo Swan (talk) 20:13, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Could you please consider following this order of steps?[edit]

I believe you are correct, and that Category:Athabasca Landing, Slave River was incorrectly named, and contained incorrect information. Good catch.

I am sorry, but I disagree with the steps you took, following this determination. Nominating the category for discussion was good, followed procedure, etc. but moving its elements to another category, emptying it, was not just premature -- because it implies you had already triggered a consensus, it exposes the project to a time-wasting round of confusion.

Categories, as currently implemented, really suck as an organizing tool, as there is no convenient or reliable way to check to see what contents a category once had, and no convenient or reliable way to see why elements were added or why they were removed.

Unfortunately, many administrators remove empty categories on sight.

I request you initiate the discussion, in cases like this, and leave the recategorization until after the discussion is complete.

I have written elsewhere as to why I disagree with your suggestion that it is satisfactory to conflate photos taken that were described as being taken in Athabasca Landing with photos taken after 1913 in the Town of Athabasca. Short version -- it is confusing and there is no real advantage to the conflation.

I am going to move the images back to the old category. This makes considering your nomination more meaningful for other parties. Geo Swan (talk) 20:32, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

I edited the files because they were improperly categorized, saying they were linked to the Slave River, when the source said they were from Athabasca Landing, which is on the Athabasca River. Not all the files ended up in the same category. I did not nominate the category for deletion because it was empty, but for discussion because I could have been wrong, and something could have been categorized with it. 117Avenue (talk) 02:50, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Cat-a-lot accident[edit]

Hello again! I just had an accident with Cat-a-lot, and am in the process of fixing it manually … will explain later if you like. Sorry for the watchlist alarms.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 06:30, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

How do you accidentally remove a category from 100 pages? This can't be a good gadget to use. 117Avenue (talk) 06:34, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
OK, all restored; thanks for your help. Cat-a-lot certainly is powerful—probably enough to be considered a bot. Short version: I misunderstood one of the functions.
Longer version: Some photos from the neighbourhood of Parkdale, Edmonton, had been uploaded in Category:Parkdale as well as Category:Edmonton. Since Toronto is the centre of the universe, its Parkdale has the undisambiguated name … anyway, I wanted to remove it from all those pix. Now usually, when you tell Cat-a-lot to do something to a batch of selected items, it just skips the ones for which the action is already done. So, lazy as I am, I thought I’d just select everything in Edmonton, bring up Parkdale, click the “Remove from this category” link, and only the miscategorized files would be affected. Well, as I found out, “this category” actually means the page you’re on, regardless of what other cat may be selected as a target … and you know the rest.
Apologies again, and I’ll certainly be more careful in future!—Odysseus1479 (talk) 08:06, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Funny that it's Parkdale, I used it as an example in en:Template:Calgary City Council/doc because Parkdale is in Ward 7 in both Calgary and Edmonton. 117Avenue (talk) 01:34, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
