Careful cleanup[edit]

Hi Acabashi , thank you for the cleanup works you did with Panoramio photos. But please be more careful to not destroy the information template. I needed to repair them.[1] --Arnd (talk) 07:18, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

sorry for your wrist. Maybe you know already, but I am informing all previous up-loaders consistently. There is a good chance that a botanist-photographer will be in the second-level international jury that evaluate the files from countries like UK, so images of wild flora and fauna are welcome and will be appreciated (if their description is scientific, of course).--Alexmar983 (talk) 13:04, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

"Remove over-categorization" ?[edit]

How on earth are images like these over-categorised? [2] [3] Are you suggesting that an image of the National Maritime Museum shouldn't be in Category:National Maritime Museum, London, and that an image of either of the Geenwich Footway Tunnel entrance building shouldn't be in Category:Greenwich foot tunnel? Exactly what categories do you think they are in, or should be in instead? -- KTC (talk) 07:57, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

You are right. My mistake. I think it might be an over-reliance on 'Cat-a-lots' over-categorization tool, which is usually reliable, or might be a bad click select of mine from those offered by the tool. Thanks for picking this up and reverting. Acabashi (talk) 10:35, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Think cat-a-lots isn't handling it well because of all the hidden categories, from WLM, with location, with maps etc. No worries. -- KTC (talk) 13:04, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Not down to me, I just trimmed off the watermark. Go for it :) Acabashi (talk) 21:48, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Religious buildings vs churches[edit]

Good time of the day,

You moved the picture Ruhpolding, Wasen, Kapelle, 1.jpeg‎ from Category:Square photos of religious buildings to Category:Square photos of churches). English was not spoken to me in my cradle, and I cannot say whether a chapel is a (subcategory of) a church. Other categories, such as Religious buildings in Martinique, suggest that churches and chapels should be parallel subcategories of religious buildings. What do you think?

Best regards, -- Renardo la vulpo (talk) 21:26, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

In English (I don't know about other cultures but I think it fairly typical), chapels are either separate religious buildings of lower rank to churches, or are parts within a church that are set aside for worship of a particular religious figure or for the remembrance of a high-ranking local family, therefore part of 'churches'. So there is a bit of confusion here in these cats. Given that there isn't a separate cat for chapels under 'square photos' (as separate buildings) it might be OK to put chapels under churches (as small churches). However, I am not dogmatic about this, and if you want to revert I have no objection. Or better, as you suggest, we can have a separate category here for 'Square photos of chapels', and put it under under a larger category of 'Square photos of Christian religious buildings' and add 'Square photos of churches' under there too. I'll leave it up to you. Many thanks. Acabashi (talk) 22:08, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I see. -- Renardo la vulpo (talk) 22:43, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Concerns over crops of Geograph images[edit]

Hi. I notice you've been overwriting some Geograph images with cropped versions. In general this is a good idea, but I'm a little concerned that in some cases this makes some {{derived from}} templates a bit silly. For instance, File:Beach at Port Charlotte, Islay - - 24076.jpg is labelled as having a derivative, File:Beach at Port Charlotte, Islay - - 24076 (cropped).jpg, but that one is now actually bigger than the "original". I think in cases like this, it might be better to upload your cropped images under a different name. --bjh21 (talk) 09:57, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Edit summary[edit]

Is that a selfie? Cheers. --E4024 (talk) 13:30, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

I believe that it is, and this user's contributions here and on Wikipedia are pure self-promo... rationale here: [4]. Thanks. Acabashi (talk) 13:33, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
