Linking category...[edit]

Thanks for your clear description in undo - that's my logical mistake, but properly linking by categories generates another problem: I don't see anything under "my" OS category. I need some time to find good solutions. Greetings, --Jasc PL (talk) 21:49, 16 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jasc PL: If you are unable to find any meaningful content to a category that probably means that it is an unnecessary category. And particularly that is not an excuse to improperly categorise useful categories under them, not even temporarily.
Another problem in the categories you have created is the naming: "Raspberry Pi" is the name chosen for the root category, so it should be used also in the sub-categories. In addition, abbreviations like "RPi" may be ambiguous, so they should be avoided. ––Apalsola tc 23:39, 16 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Apalsola: Thanks for your answer and contribution to this problem; I still working on it. We talking about Category:Raspberry Pi operating systems - from this point of view all is now exact as should be: user, after click on "[Linux distro name] on RPi" should see direct the screenshots of that distro working on PI and, as a reference, as a subcategory, main distro category. The easiest way may be able to link direct main distro category - but I don't want something like e.g. Category:Fedora (operating system) and every names in another form.
Naming: I keep that in mind; one - avoiding repeating many times in category tree "Raspberry Pi...", second - keeping all category names clear, easy to guess or find. However, only 8 of 31 subcategories are empty now - all of them are needed; first I must have categories as a destinations for uploading images.
So, I'm open to any proposals - I would like the final effect will be as good as possible. --Jasc PL (talk) 00:52, 17 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jasc PL: The main distro category (e.g. Category:Fedora (operating system) must be the parent category for Category:Fedora on RPi, not sub-category. That is how the Commons categorisation works and you cannot have different system for one subtree.
In my opinion, you should create categories only if there already is some meaningful content to add or upload to them. You should not create empty categories for possible future use. ––Apalsola tc 20:27, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Apalsola, I had a good discuss with one of admins here - unfortunately there is any way to keep the proper category tree (as you mention) and keep functionality I'v think about. So, I will remove all the same wrongly constructions, rename "my" RPi categories to full name and/or use some redirections. Then I link from RPi distro to main OS category, by usual links.
Keep calm Apalsola - I don't leave Raspberry Pi project until all work I planed will be done. Today empty categories are not for undefined future; I keep some open browser tabs with Flickr resources, or, if I couldn't find all what I need - I'll make the lacking screenshots myself. I simply don't have enough time to doing all in one time. --Jasc PL (talk) 20:56, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see, you are a very impatient. OK, but maybe more urgently is to implement {{LangSwitch}} at Fedora and the rest of similar OS pages. Isn't it? --Jasc PL (talk) 21:34, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jasc PL: First, please add your comments below the comment you are referring to instead of splitting someone else's comments.
And about impatiency: maybe it would be better to focus to the actual issue here instead of making assumptions about my personality.
I am not asking you to do everything at the same time. I also do know that people make mistakes. I have made many of them myself. However, you should not revert other users' edits, when they I trying to help you. That is what I was referring to in the first paragraph of my previous comments.
And about the empty categories: I am not asking you or anyone else to remove the current empty categories if you are planning to add content to them. But usually it is better to create categories only after (or the same time) you have the content.
But anyway, I think discussion is pretty much closed now. I look forward to see nice screenshots of different OS's running on Raspberry Pi. BR, ––Apalsola tc 11:42, 26 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Huomion objektin huomautus[edit]

Näytät nyt patsaskeskustelun jälkeen ottaneen minut tiiviin huomiosi kohteeksi. Aikaisemmin sellaista tiivistä tarkkailua on ollut vain Wikipediassa mutta sama näyttää nyt levinneen tänne. En voi sinua kieltääkään mutta koska commonsissa on paljon tapahtumia ja käyttäjiä, ei olisi pahitteeksi että jättäisit kuvani ja minut rauhaan ja kohdistaisit suurennuslasisi muualle, sillä kokemukseni mukaan Commonsin kuvissa on paljon virheellistä tietoa ja muuta korjattavaa, joka hyötyisi toiminnastasi enemmän. Seurauksena voisi myös olla vähemmän erimielisyyttä. --Abc10 (talk) 15:27, 10 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Panin juuri merkille, että Kospo75 on merkinnyt lataamiinsa kuviin tekijäksi "Publisher of the magazine Apu". Jos on tekemisen puutetta, siinä sinulle työsarkaa. Huomautin lataajalle asiasta tässä tapauksessa, mutta vastedes voit keskittyä esimerkiksi tällaisiin tekijänoikeusloukkauksiin. --Abc10 (talk) 09:42, 11 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Abc10: Teen paljon etenkin Suomessa otettuihin kuviin liittyvää luokittelu- ym. työtä, ja koska tallennat paljon Suomeen liittyviä kuvia (mikä on tietysti hyvä asia), on aivan luonnollista, että sinunkin kuviasi joukkoon sattuu. Minulla on myös käytössä OgreBotin tarjoama toiminto, joka luo automaattisesti tiettyihin luokkiin ja niiden alaluokkiin tallennetuista uusista kuvista päivittäin galleriat käyttäjäsivuni alle. Esimerkiksi Uskelan vanhan kirkon kellotapulista ottamasi kuvat löysin nimenomaan tämän toiminnon avulla, en siksi, että olisin erityisesti etsinyt sinun tallentamiasi kuvia. Kuvastasi tekemä poistopyyntö taas on yksi monista tekemistäni samankaltaisista poistopyynnöistä (poistokeskustelusivulla on linkki muutamaan esimerkkiin), joten siinäkään mielessä et ole saanut minulta mitään erityiskohtelua.
En siis ole ottanut sinun kuviasi mitenkään erityisesti huomioni kohteeksi enkä ota jatkossakaan. Minulla ei ole sellaiseen aikaa, kiinnostusta eikä mitään tarvetta. Toisaalta, jos havaitsen kuvissasi tai niiden kuvauksissa, luokissa tms. ongelmia, en aio jatkossakaan välttää niiden korjaamista vain siksi, että sinä jostain syystä saattaisit ottaa sen henkilökohtaisesti. Samasta syystä en aio ottaa myöskään käyttäjää Kospo75 tai ketään muutakaan käyttäjää minkään erityisen huomioni kohteeksi. Minun keskustelusivuni ei myöskään ole oikea paikka jonkun toisen käyttäjän tallentamissa kuvissa mahdollisesti olevien ongelmien käsittelyyn. Huomautan myös, että lukuisissa eri yhteisissä esittämäsi väite, että kuvastasi tekemäni poistoesitys olisi henkilökohtainen, on juuri sellaista motiivien keksimistä, josta itse muutama päivä sitten syytit minua suomenkielisen Wikipedian Kahvihuoneessa. ––Apalsola tc 10:46, 11 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Poistelet luokkia lataamistani kuvista. Kuitenkin Commonsissa on yleinen käytäntö, että kuvat voidaan liittää sekä alaluokkaan että pääluokkaan. Juuri siksi olen näin toisinaan tehnyt. Wikipediassa on aina paljon selittelyä miksi joku ottaa jonkun käyttäjän erityisen huomion kohtaaksi, mikä on käytännössä harrasmenttia. Olen Wikipediassa kokenut, että toimintani siellä halutaan lopettaa (en nimeä käyttäjiä, uskon että se on monen tiedossa), ja olenkin supistanut kirjoittamistani aika minimiin, mutta toivoisin, että edes Commonsissa ei tällaista ilmenisi. Jos tuntuu että huomio alkaa käydä kiusalliseksi, minun on pakko lopettaa tallentaminen ja keskittyä kuvien tallentamiseen jollekin omalle verkkosivulle ilman vapaata käyttöoikeutta. Kenen etu lopputulos sitten on, sitä voi pohtia. --Abc10 (talk) 06:51, 14 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Abc10: Commonsin virallisessa käytännössä sanotaan hyvin selvästi: "Over-categorization is placing a file, category or other page in several levels of the same branch in the category tree. The general rule is always place an image in the most specific categories, and not in the levels above those." Lisäksi siellä sanotaan: "Don't place an item into a category and its parent. For example, a black and white photo of the Eiffel Tower should be placed in Black and white photographs of the Eiffel Tower. It should not be placed in both that category and the Paris category at the same time." Pääsääntö siis on, että tiedostoja ei saa sijoittaa yhtä aikaa pää- ja alaluokkaan. Sääntöön on muutama harva poikkeus, mutta en ole huomannut, että ne sopisivat tiedostoihin, joiden luokkia olen korjannut. Jos jonkin yksittäisen tiedoston kohdalla mielestäsi näin on, pyydän kertomaan, mistä tiedostosta on kysymys. Muussa tapauksessa pyydän sinua lopettamaan aiheettomien syytösten esittämisen.
Ja mitä huomioon ja harrassmenttiin tulee, niin kannattaa nyt huomata, että sinä itse esimerkiksi pyysit taannoiselle poistokeskustelulle huomiota sekä Commonsin että suomenkielisen Wikipedian kahvihuoneessa. Myös kuvastasi tekemääni poistoesitystä katsoit aiheelliseksi kommentoida varsinaisen poistokeskustelun lisäksi ainakin kahdessa paikassa. Samoin sinä olet meistä kahdesta se, joka on aloittanut tämänkin keskustelun täällä minun keskustelusivullani. Kaikissa näissä keskusteluissa tunnut keskittyvän pääasiassa muiden käyttäjien henkilöihin etkä käsiteltävään asiaan. En hirveästi ihmettele, jos tuollaisella toiminnalla keräät itseesi ylimääräistä huomiota.
Ja koska asia ei ole vieläkään tuntunut menneen perille: Minulla ei ole edes mitään halua kohdistaa sinuun mitään erityistä huomioita. Päinvastoin, nytkin tekisin mieluummin jotain aivan muuta kuin vastailisin täällä esittämiisi aiheettomiin syytoksiin. ––Apalsola tc 11:27, 14 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A question for you[edit]

Hi, excuse me for my poor English... since you are the author of the {{According to Exif data}}, would be able to modify it to insert a parameter by country as well as the {{Taken on}}? It would serve to categorize correctly by year by moving images from the upper category, often crowded, exemple Category:Photographs taken on 2018-09-25 ---> Category:Germany photographs taken on 2018-09-25... Thanks for your patience :-) --Threecharlie (talk) 10:10, 27 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Salmijärvi and tekijänoikeushuomautus[edit]

Hello! Mikä ihmeen tekjänoikeusjuttu tässä (sinänsä heikkolaatuisessa) File:SalmijärviKajaaniFinland01.jpg -kuvassa on? Olenko painanut jotain väärää nappia? terv. --Höyhens (talk) 11:23, 27 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jos tarkoitat {{Watermark}}-mallinetta, niin sen tarkoitukseni oli vain huomauttaa kuvassa olevasta päivämäärästä. Commonsissa suositellaan, että kuvissa ei ole näkyviä vesileimoja, kuten kuvaajan nimeä tai päivämäärää. Kyseinen malline ei siis tarkoita, että kuvassa olisi mitään tekijänoikeudellista ongelmaa, vaan kyse on vain kuvassa olevista merkinnöistä.
Koska tässä tapauksessa kyse oli kuitenkin päivämäärästä eikä tekijänoikeudellisesta merkinnästä, oikeampi malline olisi ollut {{Metadata from image}}. Vaihdoin mallineen.
Mitä kuvan laatuun tulee, niin eihän tuo toki aivan parasta luokkaa ole, mutta on Commonsissa toisaalta paljon huonolaatuisempiakin kuvia, joten ainakaan minusta tuo ei ole mikään ongelma. ––Apalsola tc 12:23, 27 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:RallyFinlandYear[edit]

Hi, first i would to thank you for creating this template that, in fact, i'm using as a "default model" for many other rallies in the world. I don't wanna start an edit war for categorization reasons and i well know that most of the rally is held in the fantastic gravel roads outside Jyvaskila, but i did put XXXX in Jyvaskyla because i think that categorizing in the city of the headquarters (or service park etc..) is a "good marker" to center the rally. The category "XXX in Central Finland" obiouvsly is good and proper but it's already included in the child category "XXX in Jyvaskyla". Then i did not made missing any proper information, it's all about "including" categories and widening the range. I hope you understand my way. Greetings from Italy and let's rally!--Lou6977 (talk) 12:39, 17 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Lou6977: Categories should form a hierarchical structure. The subcategory should always be more specific than the parent category. The problem in categorising all Rally Finland related images under Category:Rally Finland is that now a lot of photographs not taken in Jyväskylä are categorised as they were taken there. That is not hierarchical. ––Apalsola tc 15:39, 21 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm struggling to understand your statement, btw i categorized the editions of the rally, not every single picture. I didn't make any violation i think. Why i do mind at every single pic? Afterwards, with your solution the problem that you raised can be solved? I don't know.--Lou6977 (talk) 19:37, 21 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
PS the category "Rally Finland" was already there way before my work--Lou6977 (talk) 19:38, 21 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Lou6977: What I mean is that for example this photograph is now categorised under Category:Jyväskylä even though the photograph was not taken in Jyväskylä.
The whole idea of categorisation is eventually to categorise photographs (or files in general), so yes, you do have to mind that part, too.
This is the version of Category:Rally Finland before your edits of 2019-04-13. So, yes, it was you who placed Category:Rally Finland under Category:Jyväskylä. ––Apalsola tc 19:50, 21 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ops, that was really my mistake, i'm going to fix it immediately, i didn't see "Rally Finland in Jyvaskyla". BTW i wanna reach a common point between us. Question: if i put "Central Finland" instead of Jyvaskyla in the template code of "RallyFinlandyear", it could be better in your opinion? In your edit appears only "Finland". Furthermore you deleted the information about Finnish Rally Championships entries and added a code about "Rally races" into an #if that i think is redundant. Summarizing, i can change the "localization part" code of the template but i would replace "Jyvaskyla" with "Central Finland". Do you think is Ok? About the main category can i put "Events in Central Finland" avoiding any possible conflict with the pics?--Lou6977 (talk) 20:03, 21 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
..But i can't understand this: "this photograph is now categorised under Category:Jyväskylä even though the photograph was not taken in Jyväskylä". I did't see any "Jyvaskyla categorization" in the pic... OK you made a "jump" from child to "grand-father" but a little bit forcedly i think--Lou6977 (talk) 21:28, 21 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kuntaliitosten vaikutus vuosilukukategorioihin[edit]

Terve! Olit poistanut tiedostosta File:Eno railway station.jpg luokan "2006 in Joensuu", koska Eno ei tuolloin vielä kuulunut Joensuuhun. Perustelu on sinänsä aivan ymmärrettävä, mutta olen luullut että olisi normaalin käytännön mukaista luokitella liitoskuntien historiaa esittävät kuvat nykyisen kunnan historian alle. Vastaavasti esimerkiksi liitoskunnissa sijaitsevat rakennukset on luokiteltu nykyisen kunnan rakennuskantaan, vaikka ne olisi purettu kauan ennen kuntaliitoksen tapahtumista. Tulisiko entisten kuntien alle perustaa erilliset "Municipality X by year" -luokat, jotka päättyisivät liitosvuoteen? Onko tästä olemassa jotain virallista ohjeistusta, jotta osaan toimia jatkossa tarkemmin? Niera (talk) 17:46, 3 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Luokittelu ei koskaan voi olla täydellinen, mutta paras kompromissi on minusta normaalisti luokitella lakkautettujen kuntien alueella otetut luokat ja tiedostot uuden kunnan alle, ihan niin kuin on tehtykin. Selvästi ajankohtaan sidottujen luokkien ja tiedostojen kohdalla tekisin kuitenkin poikkeuksen: Ei ole mitään järkeä luokitella esim. kyseistä Enon rautatieasemaa koskevaa kuvaa luokkaan "2006 in Joensuu", koska kuva ei millään tavalla kuvaa Joensuuta vuonna 2006. Jos kyseinen kuva taas luokiteltaisiin ko. luokkaan, pitäisi myös esim. Viipurissa vuonna 1930 otetut kuvat luokitella "1930 in Russia" (tai "1930 in the Soviet Union") -luokan alle.
Jos (ja tämä on iso jos) jostain lakkautetusta kunnasta on niin paljon tiedostoja ajalta ennen kuntaliitosta, että niille kannattaa vuosikohtaisia luokkia luoda, niin silloin loisin niille omat luokat. Nykyisellään Commonsissa ei kuitenkaan taida olla yhdestäkään lakkautetusta kunnasta niin paljon tiedostoja (ajalta ennen lakkauttamista), että niiden vuosiluokittelussa olisi yhtään mitään järkeä. (Ylipäätään vuosiluokittelussa on minusta järkeä vasta sitten, kun kyseisellä kunnalla tai muulla kohteella on muu kattava alaluokittelu. Jos ei ole, johtaa vuosiluokittelu siihen, että tiedostot "hukkuvat" vuosiluokkiin ja niitä on hankala löytää. Ts. vuosiluokittelu ei koskaan saisi olla ainoa tapa luokitella tiedostoja.)
Virallista ohjeistusta asiasta tuskin on, mutta monen käyttäjän (muistaakseni ainakin @Estormiz: ) olen havainnut toimivan samalla tavalla, joten jonkinlainen hiljainen konsensus asiasta lienee. ––Apalsola tc 18:06, 3 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Se on selvä, ettei vuosiluokittelu voi olla ainoa luokittelutapa. Ja hassulta tuntuisi luokitella juuri liitetyn kunnan vanhoja tiedostoja uuden kunnan vuosien alle. Uskon kuitenkin, että lopulta käy niin kuin esim. File:Malmin lentokentän vihkiäiset 1938.jpg -tiedoston kohdalla on käynyt. Kun kuntaliitoksesta on kulunut tarpeeksi kauan aikaa, niin ei enää muisteta entistä kuntaa. Jotenkin olisikin hassua laittaa ko. tiedosto Vantaan luokkiin, vaikka Vantaa onkin entinen Helsingin mlk. johon Malmi tuolloin kuului. --Estormiz (talk) 17:45, 4 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kaitoväylä[edit]

Kaitoväylä is not the only street in Oulu located in two or more districts. Most of the streets in the central districts are located in two or three or even more districts.

@Estormiz: If Kaitoväylä was categorised both under Category:Linnanmaa and Category:Kaijonharju (or any road or street in multiple same-level location categories), it would lead to several problems:
Yes, I know there are many streets categorised under multiple district categories. However, having some existing problematic categories should lead to creation new problematic categories. Instead, the existing ones should be fixed, too.

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

Category:Categories of (country) by (criterion)[edit]

Dear Apalsola, you have just reverted my 3 edits, removing „Category:Categories of Finland by decade“. In fact all the categories of a country by a given criterion have to be collected in their respective „Category:Categories of (country) by (criterion)“, including together sub-categories and super-categories. This is like the gathering of all categories by a criterion through the template „MetaCat|(criterion)“, but only for a chosen country.

I recommend you to look at categories of other countries. Let's take „Category:Categories of Sweden by city“ – you'll see there „Category:Religious buildings in Sweden by city‎“ together with its sub-categories and super-categories like „Category:Churches in Sweden by city“ and „Category:Buildings in Sweden by city‎“. Good night! --Elkost (talk) 18:37, 19 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Category:Lakes of Savonlinna[edit]

You reversed the my categorization of Lake Haukivesi into Category:Lakes and watersways of Savonlinna. OK, in a way, I understand, but then it is a dead-end-logic, because that would force us to create category "Parts of Haukivesi belonging to Savonlinna"? "Parts of Haukivesi belonging to Rantasalmi" and "Parts of Haukivesi belonging to Varkaus". I do not think that is viable option and where do we categorize e.g. images that show area of different municipalities, then? Since you are more experienced user, please clarify! --Periegetes (talk) 10:00, 30 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Periegetes: Categorisation structure is supposed to be hierarchial. I.e. files in Category:Savonlinna and its subcategories should be related to Savonlinna. Since Haukivesi is located in multiple municipalities, categorising Category:Haukivesi under Category:Lakes of Savonlinna would break the hierarchy: there would be file not related to Savonlinna under Category:Savonlinna.
I don't think the per-municipality subcategories like Category:Haukivesi in Savonlinna or Category:Haukivesi in Rantasalmi would be a problem provided there are enough files to be categorised in those categories. See Category:Lake Hiidenvesi and its sub-categories for example.
Please also notice that category naming should follow the present structure. I.e. Category:Lakes of Savonlinna is better than Category:Lakes and waterways of Savonlinna, since it fits to the present category structure below Category:Lakes. Best regards, ––Apalsola tc 12:18, 30 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If I take a upload a picture of Haukivesi depicting area of Savonlinna, I should be able to categorize it so that people looking for images of Savonlinna areas are likely to find it. I did research on this, and it seems there are precedents that the logic I am proposing works; e.g. Category:Lake Nasser is categorized in "Reservoirs in Egypt" and in "Reservoirs in Sudan, which is entirely logical. Similar example is Category:Lake Tanganyika. Based on my research, the categorization I prosed is entirely normal and logical for features of physical geography extending over more than one administrative entities. Puruvesi, Pihlajavesi and Haukivesi are essential features of physical geography in Savonlinna, so it is really artificial to try to suppress them from Savonlinna categories. I urge you to reconsider this in the light of logic and comparative evidence --Periegetes (talk) 06:43, 1 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FinnaUploadBot:n taideteoskuvat[edit]

Kasasin tänne noita tallennettuja taideteoskuvia. Alkuperäinen galleriana näkyvä lista on tehty siten, että kasasin finnan avainsanojen perusteella taideteoksia sisältäviä kuvia ja sitten poimin käsin siihen sivun alkuun listaksi sellaisia kuvia joissa on minusta tekijänoikeudensuojaama taideteos. Kysymys oikeastaan kuuluu, että miten noita kannattaisi lähteä poistamaan eli teenkö yhden listan per taiteilija per poistopyyntö vai listaanko ne kaikki samaan? --Zache (talk) 14:15, 24 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Zache: En ihan varmasti tiedä, onko tästä jokin suositus, mutta voi olla helpointa käsitellä kaikki yhdessä poistopyynnössä, vaikkei lopputulos välttämättä kaikkien osalta olekaan sama. (Voi olla, että osa kuvista säästetään esim. de minimis -käytännön perusteella.) Toinen vaihtoehto on ryhmitellä pyynnöt esim. teoksittain tai taiteilijoittain. Sen sijaan missään nimessä ei minusta kannata tehdä jokaisesta tiedostosta erillistä pyyntöä, koska silloin tulee aivan turhaan päällekkäisiä keskusteluita, mutta etpä tällaista vaihtoehtoa kyllä ehdottanutkaan.
Jos päätät listata kaikki samaan listaan, pitäisi kunkin tiedoston kohdalle merkitä kuitenkin ainakin ko. teoksen tekijä ja mielellään myös yksilöidä teos (jos sitä ei ole jo yksilöity esim. tiedostonimessä). Lisäksi poistokeskustelusivut kannattaa lisätä Category:Finnish FOP cases/pending -luokkaan <noinclude></noinclude>-tagin sisässä.
Ja poistamiset pitää hoitaa siis nimenomaan poistokeskustelun kautta; Freedom of panorama -tapauksissa pikapoistoa ei voi käyttää. ––Apalsola tc 14:27, 24 August 2020 (UTC) –– (pingaus lisätty) Apalsola tc 16:56, 24 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kategorioiden kuvaustekstit[edit]

Terve taas! Huomasin että olit kumonnut Loviisan kirkon kategoriaan tekemäni muutoksen, jossa olin poistanut suomen- ja englanninkieliset esittelytekstit. Käsitykseni on ollut, ettei noita lyhyitä esittelytekstejä tarvittaisi, jos Wikidatan infoboksi kertoo jo samat ja kattavammat tiedot kategorian sisällöstä. Onko kuitenkin periaatteena, että tekstit kuuluisi säilyttää infotaulukosta huolimatta? Kysyn jotten vastaisuudessa tekisi enää turhia tekstipoistoja. Niera (talk) 09:42, 21 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ainakin COM:CAT#Creating a new category ohjeistaa edelleen kirjoittamaan lyhyen kuvauksen, ja ainakin omasta mielestäni kuvaus on edelleen hyödyllinen, vaikka luokassa tietolaatikko olisikin. Tietystikin kuvaukset on syytä pitää lyhyenä; pitemmät selostukset kuuluvat Wikipedia-projektien puolelle. ––Apalsola tc 17:32, 22 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Zelenymuzik: At least en:Irreligion states that atheism is part of irreligion which is "the absence, indifference to, or rejection of religion". For many people funerals certainly present faith and religion, but not all of them, and that is the reason root categories for funerals or cemeteries should not be categorized under religion. ––Apalsola tc 16:21, 16 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

P1071[edit]

You added "location of creation", P1071, to File:Scouthamn Satava 2010.jpg. The property description says "Wikidata property related to processes and manufacturing" etc. – nothing about location of the shot. Is this property meant to be used for all photos? In that case something to that effect should be added to the description. If not, what is the intention here? –LPfi (talk) 13:10, 6 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What is the source of the description you quoted? The description in Wikidata:Property:P1071 says: "place where the item was made; where applicable, location of final assembly" which can be applied to photographs, too. I actually used "location" property before but I was corrected. ––Apalsola tc 13:48, 6 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It was the "instance of". The aliases also have many related to manufacturing etc. But yes, I understand those descriptions may have to be odd for many marginal uses.
What puzzles me most, I think, is the difference between properties of the photograph itself (and if made in a darkroom, wouldn't that be the location of creation?) and properties of the subject of the photo.
Oh, I see. The motif should be described with qualifiers, not by properties of the photo. We still have the darkroom problem if we are to add "location of final assembly". For digital photos that would be my desk, where I crop and resize the image. Or, as it is the file description page, most properties should be qualifiers to a separate media description (instance of photo?).
For properties to be added to most media, we should have a proper guideline page, not just ad hoc reasoning by those adding properties, adjusted as one personally gathers experience. I mean a best practices page on Commons, not just the descriptions of individual properties, which can be quite confusing.
LPfi (talk) 21:53, 9 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@LPfi: Yes, I think the statements always refer to the photograph, not its subjects. As you said qualifiers should be used for the properties of the subject.
I think the photograph is created when it is captured. What happens in the darkroom or Photoshop, is more like modification or processing of a photograph that already has been created.
I agree that more specific guidelines for the structured data would help. Now many users tend to just put to the "depicts" field anything that is even remotely related to the photograph. ––Apalsola tc 11:56, 13 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mansku[edit]

Kategoristi kaipaa jälleen rohkaisua luokituksiin. Mannerheimintie-luokkaan kuuluu nyt 6 kaupunginosaluokkaa, ja se on kieltämättä häirinnyt jo tovin. Uskaltaako ne kaikki ottaa pois? Tie ulottuu kovin pitkälle pohjoiseen, niin ilmeisesti ei myöskään sovi käyttää tuota Helsinki city centre -luokkaa. Jos siitä sitten hiljalleen pudottelisi spesifejä kaupunginosa- ja katuluokkia yksittäisiin kuviin. Jonkun verran tätä on tullut jo tehtyäkin, myös satoja kuvia sisältävässä Hämeentie-luokassa (jossa kaupunginosaluokkia on 5). Jos taktiikka on tämä, niin koitan noudattaa parhaani mukaan. --Coen (talk) 11:29, 13 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Coen: Näistä on toki eriäviäkin mielipiteitä, mutta jos minulta kysytään, niin uskaltaa. :-) Tuollainen massaluokittelu johtaa siihen, että nyt esim. luokan Category:Kluuvi alla on kuvia, jotka on otettu monen kilometrin päässä Kluuvista. Ja jos tällainen luokittelu laajennettaisiin yhä pitempiin katuihin tai teihin, voi vain miettiä, monessako luokassa esim. Category:National road 4 (Finland) olisi.
Kaupunkiosakohtaisessa luokittelussa on hyvä myös pitää mielessä, mikä on luokittelun alkuperäinen tarkoitus. Minusta (eri mieltä saa taas olla) se on tiettyyn aihepiiriin liittyvien kuvien löytämisen helpottaminen. Joissain tapauksissa liian tarkka luokittelu saattaa sotia tätä tarkoitusta vastaan. Esim. Helsingin keskustan kaupunginosien tarkkoja rajoja ei varmaan moni helsinkiläinenkään tunne, ulkopaikkakuntalaisista puhumattakaan. Jos siis tekee kaupunginosille alaluokkia (esim. "Buildings in ..." tai "Streets in ..."), kannattaa pyrkiä siihen, että kaupunginosa ei ole ainoa luokitteluperuste. Ts. esim. rakennusten olisi hyvä olla aina myös esim. rakennusten käyttötarkoitusta kuvaavassa luokassa ("Schools in Helsinki", "Museums in Helsinki", "Churches in Helsinki" jne.), ja näille ei pitäisi enää tehdä kaupunkiosakohtaisia alaluokkia. Tämän vuoksi esim. Category:Schools in Hakunila on minusta tarpeeton tai jopa haitallinen: löytääkseen esim. Hevoshaan koulun kuvia, pitäisi ensin tietää koulun sijaitsevan Hakunilassa. Lisäksi Vantaallakaan ei ole niin paljon kouluja, etteivätkö ne voisi olla vain suoraan yhdessä Category:Schools in Vantaa -luokassa. ––Apalsola tc 11:47, 13 March 2021 (UTC) –– (lisätty ping) Apalsola tc 11:56, 13 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hmm, hyvää filosofiaa. Yksityiskohtaisuus ja artikkelien sitominen yhä tiiviimmin tarkkoihin paikkoihin on sinänsä ihanan systemaattista, mutta toisaalta sopii yrittää hautoa yhä enemmän tuota saavutettavuutta. Keskusta-alueilla ja ties missä metropoleissa tuo rakennusjaottelu on mielestäni paikallaan, koska nää isommat kaupunginosaluokat ovat kyllästymiseen asti pullollaan kaiken maailman tönöjä, julkisivuja ja porttikongeja, ja jos ne ovat kaikki samassa kaupunginosakategoriassa, vaikeutuu sekä yleisen kaupunkikuvan tutkiminen että myös spesifimmän arkkitehtuurin tutkiminen. Ja selattavaa tulee siinä vaiheessa jo ärsyttävän paljon. Apartments buildings- ja office buildings -kategoriat jne. auttanevat sitten siinä käyttötarkoituksen navigoinnissa. Pienemmissä paikoissa asia on eri. En oikeastaan muista, millä motiivilla tuo Schools in Hakunila on syntynyt, ja se kieltämättä erottuu hölmön turhanpäiväisenä. Sen kaiketi voi navigointisyistä deletoida? Hakunilassa on kyllä paljon kuvattavaa, mutta ei nyt sentään ihan noin tarkkoihin alaluokkiin asti... --Coen (talk) 13:15, 13 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am writing to you because we are looking for feedback for a new Wikimedia Foundation project, Structured Data Across Wikimedia (SDAW). SDAW is a grant-funded programme that will explore ways to structure content on wikitext pages in a way that will be machine-recognizable and -relatable, in order to make reading, editing, and searching easier and more accessible across projects and on the Internet. We are now focusing on designing and building image suggestion features for experienced users.

We have some questions to ask you about your experience with uploading images here on Wikimedia Commons and then adding them to Wikipedia. You can answer these questions on a specific feedback page on Mediawiki, where we will gather feedback. As I said, these questions are in English, but your answers do not need to be in English! You can also answer in your own language, if you feel more comfortable.

Once the collecting of feedback will be over, we will sum it up and share with you a summary, along with updated mocks that will incorporate your inputs.

Also, if you want to keep in touch with us or you want to know more about the project, you can subscribe to our newsletter.

Some categories[edit]

For some regions of Finland, categories for Monuments and memorials in Finland by region had been created. I began to create more of them but realised soon that the task was bigger than I had now resources for, even if I was going to create only some new categories. What seemed to be too difficult with my current time resourses was to join together in a proper way the categories in Category:Monuments and memorials in Finland by region and the categories in Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Finland by region that was created by you. As the category Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Finland is a subcategory of Category:Monuments and memorials in Finland, then the same hierarchy should probably be applied also in the regional level. But however, now it is not applied in an uniform manner in all cases. So this should be fixed first, something that I did not realise when I just decided to add a couple of lacking regional subcategories into the Category:Monuments and memorials in Finland by region. And because for some regions there was a regional category in Category:Culture of Finland by region and for some regions there was not, I first created this main category Category:Culture of Finland by region into which the catecories for Monuments and memorials in Finland by region should be added and then the catgories of Cultural heritage monuments in Finland by region should be added into these. But then I realised that just now I will have no time to finish this, or at lest it will be happening very very slowly and little by little. - And actually I am not sure if the mediating catecory of "Culture in region X" is necessary if the regional category for monuments would be the only coontent in it.

The task that I was going to do was and is a part of the Finnish languge Wikipedia project fi:Wikiprojekti:Suomen julkiset taideteokset ja muistomerkit Wikipediaan in which among active participants are also such users as fi:Käyttäjä:Kulttuurinavigaattori, fi:Käyttäjä:Htm and fi:Käyttäjä:Aulis Eskola to mention just a few of them. - But this idea of trying to complete the categories by region in commons wás was wholly mine when there happened not to be anything elso to do last weekend. But now it seems that I have no resources to finish it or I may be able too finish it only slowly or bit by bit. But anyway, this was the consept I was going to apply. for this projcet becaus it will help to manage the contents in commons for the fi-Wikipedia project mentioned above. - Another part of the project is to find images that shuold be in the categories Monuments and memorials in Finland by city but are not, and for municipalities from which there are less than three images (or subcategories?) I would be going to sort the images to the regional monument categories.

I already presented this concept to the participants of the project mentioned above but realised then only afterwards that the categories upper in the hierarchy of categories mentioned above should be organicesed first in a uniform manner in the same process. So I will link this discussion in this discussion page in the discussion page of the project in fi-Wikipedia to make this concept clear. If you have comments to this feel free to comment. --Urjanhai (talk) 16:47, 24 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
