Categories Lviv

Hi Ahonc, would you please stop deleting categories I create for monuments in Ukraine? I connect them with the monument IDs in the ukrainian monuments lists and the Erfgoedbot will fill them regularly. I'm sure you have heard of this Bot that support us with the fantastic amounts of images that were uploaded throug Wiki Loves Monuments. It would have been nice if you asked what I do before you just destroy my work which is not easy for me as I am not a native speaker of Ukrainian. Thank you. --Elya (talk) 19:23, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

PS: I just saw that you completely deleted my work of the last days. Please restore the categories, they are definitely needed and will be filled. --Elya (talk) 19:28, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
I would just like to add that even if those categories were not related to Wiki Loves Monuments, some care and consideration should have been given to the work of a fellow Commons administrator. You know that we all here try to help in creating and managing this great media repository, and also know the basic rules, so I think you should've guessed that those seemingly empty categories were there for a reason :-) Thanks, odder (talk) 19:29, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Empty categories fall under speedy deletion. If you create category, you should place in it at least two images. There is no need to create category for only one image. And if we get other image for this topic, we create new category.Anatoliy (talk) 19:32, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
As I explained, this is team work: I create the category, Erfgoedbot will fill it automatically. The categories are linked at uk.wp and will be filled, as a result of the deletions we will have filled but non-existent categories. --Elya (talk) 19:41, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
But not all monuments have photos. Some categories will stay empty.--Anatoliy (talk) 19:44, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
I created categories only for existing images that are listed under [1]. We have around 6000 unused monument images from WLM Ukraine that need to be categorized and put into the lists. If you'd like to join us with this huge work it would be much more constructive than deleting categories without even asking what I'm doing. Regarda, --Elya (talk) 19:49, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your support, I see you restore the categories. --Elya (talk) 19:50, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Well, but Брюллов transliterated as Briullov, and you wrote Brullov = Бруллов.--Anatoliy (talk) 19:57, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

  • But Britannica (and EnWiki) uses English traditional spelling Brullov [2]. Bogomolov.PL (talk) 23:41, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Вилучи бдлск порожні категорії в [3] я переніс їх вміст у більш адекватно названі. --A1 (talk) 19:37, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Just to let you know. --Leyo 08:49, 11 October 2012 (UTC)


Не понимаю, какое нужно было разрешение? Этот файл загрузил лично Сидоренко. --Wanderer777 (talk) 15:18, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Его загрузил User:VovanA. А это не Александр Сидоренко--Anatoliy (talk) 15:23, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
А там точно не было более ранней версии? --Wanderer777 (talk) 15:28, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Не было.--Anatoliy (talk) 15:40, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
File:Aleksandr Sidorenko.jpg - такого на складе не было? --Wanderer777 (talk) 15:35, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Было. Загружено тем же участником.--Anatoliy (talk) 15:40, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Однако: [4]. --Wanderer777 (talk) 15:59, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Category:Taras Shelestuk

Чи не могли/знаєте як перейменувати дану категорію у дану. Саме так в англ вікі стаття про нього називається.--KuRaG (talk) 13:50, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Olesya Povh


Olesya Povh is a valid transliteration from cyrillic, so you should make it a redirection instead of deleting it. Cheers. Badzil (talk) 14:35, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Misuse of tools

Never rollback (per COM:RBK) anyone's edit when it isn't vandalism and never change categories when it is disputed, as an Admin you should know this. Bidgee (talk) 10:00, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
