Date format

I respectfully disagree with the ISO 8601 date format and I choose not to use it in my pictures. Dantadd 13:23, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Categorizing & date format

Thanks for the information. I will try my best to subcategorize my pictures in the future. The thing is that it is not so easy to find an appropriate subcategory because there is an ocean of categories out there. --Siipikarja 12:42, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree with you; finding an appropriate category is often quite tricky. --Apalsola tc 22:44, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Also, where is it said that one should prefer the ISO 8601 date format? In my opinion, it is less informative than the date format I originally provided. From the ISO 8601 date format it is not self-evident when the picture was taken. Was it the 6th of April or the 4th of June? Unless you can provide a decent justification for the use of the ISO 8601 date format, please change the date format back to what it used to be. Ps. look at the date format of the signatures, it is not ISO 8601, is it? ;) --Siipikarja 13:01, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
From Commons:First steps/Quality and description: Date. Date of creation (or date of release), preferably in ISO 8601 format, such as "2006-01-15" for 15 January 2006. The ISO 8601 is an international, language-independent standard. As far as I know, "YYYY-DD-MM" like format is not widely used anywhere, so the ISO 8601 format should not cause any confusion, either. --Apalsola tc 22:44, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Okay, fair enough. I stand corrected. Thank you. --Siipikarja (talk) 12:30, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Road building categories

Howdy, I just spotted that you are moving a number of Road building in [PLACE] categories from the Road transport in [PLACE] category over to Roads in [PLACE]. I've been trying to do considerable work on roadway categories, which have been a mess; and in doing so I've been trying to keep the Roads in [PLACE] categories just for roads themselves; and then everything else having to do with roads is intended to be with Road transport in [PLACE]. Do you have any objection if I undo your changes? Cheers! --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 03:11, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

The main category Category:Road building was in Category:Roads (not Category:Road transport), so I moved the Road building in [PLACE] categories to the respective Roads in [PLACE] categories for consistency. That being said, consistency can also be achieved by moving all the Road building in [PLACE] categories to the respective Road transport in [PLACE] categories and by moving Category:Road building to Category:Road transport. So, I don't object if you undo my changes. BR, --Apalsola tc 15:52, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

--WPK (talk) 19:25, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

I answered at the WPK's talk page because the discussion was started there. --Apalsola tc 20:00, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Taken by category renames

Thank you for your uniformisation efforts (and translations from finish category names). I am just wondering if in the camera category names, we better omit the omnipresent word digital, as anyway, the camera brand and type name has that implicitly. --Foroa (talk) 08:18, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Actually original Canon IXUS cameras were analog APS cameras. If we removed the word "digital" from Digital IXUS category names, there is possibility that at least category names for Canon Digital IXUS II and Canon IXUS II cameras would conflict.
But, on the other hand, that confliction is quite unlikely, and the change would make category names shorter, which generally is a good thing. So, it is OK for me to remove the word "digital" from all "Canon Digital IXUS *" and "Taken with Canon Digital IXUS *" category names. But I hope, someone controlling a bot could rename the categories. It is too much work to move over 1,000 images manually. ;-) --Apalsola tc 10:26, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, the simpler the better. I'll get the bot moving things one of these days (without digital in the "Taken by cam_manuf cam_type" categories). --Foroa (talk) 11:21, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
I opened a discussion on this at Category talk:Photos taken with Canon Digital IXUS. --Apalsola tc 16:25, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
Thank you! Can you remove the word "DIGITAL" also from categories Category:Taken with Canon EOS 300D DIGITAL, Category:Taken with Canon EOS 350D DIGITAL and Category:Taken with Canon EOS 450D DIGITAL? --Apalsola tc 21:47, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Where is this Categorization coming from? Any discussion you could point me to? I was wondering about the point of this data duplication. The data is in the EXIF fields already. And you are essentially doing a job that a bot could easily perform. Isn't this pretty dull? --Dschwen (talk) 16:03, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I do not know where is it coming from; it wasn't me who initially started to categorize photographs by camera, and I do not know whether there has been some discussion about it. The oldest Taken with category I found was created in June 2006, so they have existed quite a long while already.
About the data duplication, virtually all categorizing is data duplication; the same information is (or at least it should be) available on the image description. Categorizing is a way to get the images organized. Categorizing by camera is one basis to do that.
And yes, a bot could easily perform the job once the categories actually exist and their names are standardized. At the moment, they are not. --Apalsola tc 17:43, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Ok, fair enough. But then I suggest standardizing the Category names first. The straight forward way would be basing the category names on the EXIF data. That would make bot development very easy. Otherwise we'll have to create a lookup table to translate from the EXIF data to the category name. Just manually categorizing is a huge waste of time. --Dschwen (talk) 19:39, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
A lookup table seems unavoidable as many cameras have a different name in different countries/continents. And I agree that this is bot work, I would not bother to do it manually anyway. --Foroa (talk) 06:44, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Approved users

As you can see here, now you can request image renames without additional approval. Might make your live a little bit simpler. Note that you can request category move requests at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands. Keep up the good work. --Foroa (talk) 19:23, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! :-) --Apalsola tc 19:26, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Maps related to the Finnish war

Hi, I saw that you have done a map of the battle of Revolax. Any chance you would do more maps of it? I am currently translating various pages of it into Norwegian bokmål/riksmål, you may check the main article here. Ulflarsen (talk) 17:06, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Actually the original map is drawn by Andrein (talk). I just made some minor modifications to it and translated it into Finnish. I can still do some translation work but unfortunatelly I don't have skills to draw maps from scratch. --Apalsola tc 21:19, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I checked his userpage here but it does not seem that he is active. Too bad as we could need more good maps from that conflict. Ulflarsen (talk) 10:45, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Template:Infobox aircraft image/lang

Hi there! I reverted your last edit on Template:Infobox aircraft image/lang. I based my decision on all other autotranslated templates where the alphabetical order of languages used is based on the English spelling, not the Finnish one. Hence, Finnish goes before French, not Ranska before Suomi. I hope you have a pleasant day. Phil13 (talk) 12:15, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

I thought it would be better to order the templates by the native name of the language likewise the interwiki links are ordered at the English Wikipedia, i.e. Deutsch – English – Français – Suomi – Svenska, for example. Then the language names would actually be displayed alphabetically which in my opinion would be more user friendly. But if it is a standard or policy to order the template by the ISO language code, I am OK with that though I think we should consider to change the policy. (But that requires a separate discussion in a larger forum, of course.) I hope you have a pleasant day, too. --Apalsola tc 21:58, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Terve! Tarkkailulistallani näkyy silloin tällöin muutoksia, joissa olet lisännyt koordinaattien eteen nollia. Olen ihmetellyt muutoksia joka kerta, enkä malta enää olla jännityksessä. Mitä hyötyä niistä etunollista on? --Para (talk) 10:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Itse asiassa nyt, kun kysyit, niin huomasin, että Commonsissa ei mitään hyötyä, koska malline ei näköjään enää niitä näytä. :-) (Joskus on kyllä näyttänyt.) Yleisesti koordinaatteja ilmoitettaessa noita etunollia on tapana käyttää (näin ainakin minun havaintojeni mukaan; en tiedä, onko jollain Wikimedia-projektilla, standardisointiorganisaatiolla tai esim. suomen kielen osalta kielitoimistolla jotain virallisempaa kantaa asiaan), joten olen niitä lisäillyt samalla, kun olen tehnyt muitakin muokkauksia. (Ja ainakin Wikipedian puolella nollat kyllä edelleen näkyvät.) --Apalsola tc 10:23, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


Hi. I wanted to remind you that interwikis on Commons and most other projects are sorted by the language code. Only nine projects (among them fi.WP don't do that). But otherwise, thanks, keep on your good work. -- Cecil (talk) 16:25, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi! Is there a written policy about the iw sorting on Commons? I have tried to find one without luck. --Apalsola tc 16:28, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
It's on meta: Interwiki sorting order as information for bot-users. I thought I already had discussed with you about it, but must have been a name-mix-up. For some reason I'm nearly unable to remember Finnish words, even after nearly two years in the country. -- Cecil (talk) 16:56, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, that's not a Commons policy. And, there have been recently a shot discussion in the Village Pump and the outcome was that there is no policy. Although only nine projects do not sort iw's by language code, (the largest project by any means) is one of them. And, I consider it much more user friendly to sort them by language name because then they actually are listed alphabetically in the left column. And, yes, we have discussed that earlier. --Apalsola tc 17:12, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
It's the policy for all interwiki-bots how to sort and valid for all projects. How do you think the definition of how to sort landed on meta as definition for the bots? The Meta-users did not decide that by themselves for the other projects, but we have a huge huge archive and this original discussion could be everywhere. And you only feel it to be more user-friendly because you are used to it from your home wiki. Currently you are working against the bots who all sort as it was defined. One question: are you sorting like this on other projects too? Some month ago on German Wikipedia I gave you the right for flagged revisions, so that nobody needs to check if your edits are ok, so I'd like to know if that trust in your updates was wrong. -- Cecil (talk) 23:17, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, bots need some default values for sorting even if a project does not have any written down policy, and apparently that is "by language code". If there is a written down policy on Commons (and someone points that out), I will – of course – act according to the policy and so I do, for example, on the German Wikipedia. But, please, no "it has to be somewhere" talk. And about the "you only feel" thing: you do not know me so, please, do not assume my motives. --Apalsola tc 10:24, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
First, you said so yourself, so it is not an assumption. It was an I consider, not an it is considered. And I just said that the discussion it is somewhere, because I don't think it is worth searching for it. First, because Interwiki-bots are operating on multiple projects, not just one, so it would not make sense to store the sorting-information locally, so that the programmers have to search in all projects to find the local customs. And second, the next time a properly programmed interwiki-bot works on the pages he will restore the order, so you are just doing fruitless extra-work. Do you really think it is userfriendly to sort a few galleries and categories in a different order than the rest? You can't beat the bots. By the time you have finished resorting the interwikis in one place and start the next one, the bots will come and restore them again. So "your" sorting will always be the minority. And then users have to really search for it, because depending on who was last sorting on the page the interwikis can be anywhere. -- Cecil (talk) 12:56, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I did say that I consider that more user-friendly and I did also say that this is because then the interwiki links actually are listed alphabetically in the left column. I did not say that I consider it more user-friendly only – – because I am used to it from my home wiki. That is where you are assuming my motives. --Apalsola tc 21:38, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
Since you and me could argue on that (whether there is a policy or not, and which way is more user-friendly and why is that) forever without any productive outcome, I opened a discussion in the Village pump. I really hope the Commons community reaches consensus on this and alike issues. (And if we do not reach consensus the we should vote.) And whatever the consensus or vote result would be, I am fine with that. --Apalsola tc 22:37, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
Good idea. I'm just not sure if the Village pump is really the best place for this discussion. Not sure where it would be, but on Village pump you mainly have users from en-projects, while the users of other language communities, who have the experience with the other sorting outside of Commons (and probably also know the reason why other projects have language-code-sorting except that it is comfortable) will mostly not see it. Since it seems a rather important topic (based on the many questions about it in the archives), it should be something with voting. So maybe it would be better to start a guideline-page (as we have it for the language templates), where the arguments for the different options, solutions and stuff are collected and then prepared for a voting (which should be announced in the different language forums). I'm currently in my last week before holidays and have to finish lots of stuff at work and then on holidays will be not able to go online that often, but I will try to check back a few times and help translating the arguments for voting. -- Cecil (talk) 18:42, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

my photos

Thank you for categorizing my photos. My english is too bad to find here anything. And the delete-requests aren't a problem for me. When i'm uploading, i don't knew, that there protectet sculptures. Sorry for the bad english. --Ralf Roletschek (talk) 16:13, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Kein Problem! Dank für die gute Fotos! :-) (Und Verzeihung für mein schlecht Deutsch...) --Apalsola tc 20:56, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
At 18. August we have a wikipedia-meeting in Helsinki, i'll take some new photos and i look, that there are no sculptures ;) --Ralf Roletschek (talk) 14:35, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
(Writing in English. I hope you understand.) You can take photographs of sculptures, but only publish photographs of statues, if the sculptor died in 1938 or earlier. (For example, copyright of Havis Amanda statue will expire on 1 January 2011, so in about 1,5 years these photographs will not need to be deleted anymore.)
When uploading the images it would be nice if you could write some short description (in German; they don't necessarily be in English) of them. Categorizing and writing descriptions in other languages would be a lot easier then. --Apalsola tc 10:31, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
I knew, what ist freedom of panorama. I only have no think of the fact, that this in Finland no exist. Ok, the description can be better ;) Categorys i can't find here in the english system. --Ralf Roletschek (talk) 12:16, 18 August 2009 (UTC)


Hei! Olit lisännyt aikoinaan [1] Personality rights-mallineen kuvaan Image:Haipakka1.JPG. Kyselen, että pitääkö minun ruveta johonkin toiminpiteisiin kuvan takia? Ymmärtäisin, että julkiseltapaikalla otettu valokuva on sallittu käyttää Wikipedian w:fi:Korttelihaipakka-artikkelissa. Kuvassa näkyy suurikin ihmisjoukko, mutta kuvan on otettu itse tapahtumasta, ei yksilöity keneenkään ihmiseen/ihmisiin. Terv. --Ville Siliämaa (talk) 15:42, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Ei ainakaan minun puolestani tarvitse ryhtyä mihinkään toimenpiteisiin. {{Personalityrights}}-mallineen tarkoitus on olla varoitus kuvan (mahdolliselle) käyttäjälle siitä, että tekijänoikeudesta riippumatta paikallinen lainsäädäntö saattaa rajoittaa kuvan käyttöä, jos/kun kuvassa esiintyviltä ihmisiltä ei ole saatu suostumusta kuvan julkaisemiseen. Malline ei siis ole mikään poistovaroitus tms.
Toinen kysymys on sitten, että esimerkiksi Suomessa lainsäädäntö saattaa rajoittaa kuvien julkaisemista (esimerkiksi tallentamista Commonsiin), jos kuvissa esiintyy tunnistettavia henkilöitä. Tältä osin löydät internetistä lisätietoja esimerkiksi tietosuojavaltuutetun[2] tai Jukka Korpelan[3] kotisivuilta (jälkimmäiseen tosin kannattaa suhtautua pienellä varauksella), taikka sitten esimerkiksi hakusanayhdistelmillä "valokuva julkaiseminen" ja "valokuva yksityisyyden suoja". Kyseisen haipakkakuvan osalta tämän pohtiminen on tietysti jo vähän myöhäistä, mutta asiaan kannattaa tutustua, jos vastaisuudessa aikoo kuvia Commonsiin tallentaa. --Apalsola tc 17:23, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Kyllä, ymmärrän mitä tarkoitat ja pyrin jatkossa ottamaan tämän asian huomioon. Pystyisikö kuvan poistamaan myöhemmin, jos esimerkiksi joku julkisella paikalla kuvassa esiintyvistä "henkilöstä"/"henkilöt" sitä vaatisi? --Ville Siliämaa (talk) 21:08, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Ilmeisesti Commonsista ainakin joskus on kuvia tällä perusteella poistettu. Tosin enpä oikein jaksa uskoa, että kukaan moista vaatisi. Kyseessä on kuitenkin tavallinen julkisella paikalla otettu yleiskuva, josta on vaikea kuvitella, että se ketään loukkaisi. Samanlaisiahan on Commonsissa vaikka kuinka paljon. (Ja jos vielä otetaan huomioon, minkälaisia hyvinkin loukkaavia kuvia ja videoita nykyisin julkaistaan yhtään miettimättä tai mitään lupia kyselemättä, niin onhan tuo haipakkakuva aika pientä...) --Apalsola tc 22:38, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Joops, eipä tässä sitten mitään ongelmaa taida loppujen lopuksi olla. Mutta kiitos tarkennuksesta kuitenkin. (Tänä iltana sitä taas Oulussa olisi haipakat tiedossa ;) ) --Ville Siliämaa (talk) 04:26, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Tour Eiffel


ça aurait été sympa d'expliquer pourquoi tu as renommé la catégorie Tour Eiffel en Eiffel tower. Je trouve que c'est une faute de goût de ta part car le nom officiel de ce monument est "Tour Eiffel" et pas autre chose. Aussi, quand on ne parle pas français, on évite de faire ce type de modifications aventureuse (surtout sans explications !)

Benchaum (talk) 06:45, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

(I don't speak French, but I got the idea with the help of Google translate.) According to the Language policy and the Categories page the category names should be in English. I did explain that when I made the move request[4] on 4 October. The move was made two weeks later, on 19 October, beacuse there were no objections. --Apalsola tc 08:47, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

National Road vs. Regional Road

Tere! Seututiet näkyvät olevan pääluokassa Regional roads in Finland mutta alaluokat ovat muotoa National Road nnn. Eikös olisi parempi muuttaa alaluokatki regionaaleksi, joka on samalla parempi muoto kuvaamaan seudullista tietä? Tve4 (talk) 06:41, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

En muista, minkä maan alaluokkien nimeämiskäytännöstä tuon aikanaan kopioin, mutta nimenmuutos voisi kieltämättä olla järkevä. Tällöin tosin pitäisi muuttaa myös valtateiden alaluokat muotoon Highway n (Finland) tms. Tiehallinnon käyttämä muoto valtateistä on tosin "Main road", mutta koska Commons käyttää kaikkien maiden kohdalla termiä highway, olisi varmaan järkevää pitäytyä valtateiden osalta siinä. Sitten pitäisi vielä miettiä, miten kantatiet nimetään. Yksi vaihtoehto olisi "Highway (2nd class) n (Finland)". Sisältää melkoisen määrän sulkeita kyllä.
Monien maiden tieluokat on kyllä nimetty aivan paikallisenkin kielen mukaan (Suomen tapauksessa siis "Valtatie 4", "Kantatie 51" tai "Seututie 847"), mutta minusta tämä ei ole järkevää, kun yleisohje on kuitenkin käyttää luokkien nimissä englannin kieltä. Commonsilla ei taida olla mitään yhtenäistä käytäntöä tästä(kään) asiasta. --Apalsola tc 11:13, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks in advance. Kmw2700 (talk) 20:44, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

It is not my own work (I just transferred it from the English Wikipedia), so I don't know surely. But according to the caption Rwon en:Halych it is quite safe to assume that the location is Krylos. BR, --Apalsola tc 20:50, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. And I always use {{move}} if I consider that the move in any way could be controversial. This time I didn't use {{move}} because I thought that this one would be a routine move only. But apparently it's not, so it is better use {{move}}. --Apalsola tc 17:56, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Frozen lakes

Hi, thanks for categorizing. Can you please translate the description in Category:Frozen lakes of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, too? Greets -- Niteshift (talk) 13:41, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for help

Thank you for the help, I'm not an expert with your rules. Sorry form my mistakes. -- 13:11, 16 February 2010 (UTC) (Roccodm as unlogged)

You're welcome. And hope these rules don't cause you too much trouble. --Apalsola tc 13:13, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Halusin jotenkin kiittää siitä, että olet niin ahkerasti luokitellut kuvia ja muuten parannellut yhteenvetoja, mutta kun en paikallisia palkintomallineita osaa käyttää niin tämä on ihan näin tekstinä. Luokittelutyösi ansiosta Commonsista tulee huomattavasti helpommin käytettävä, varsinkin kun monet ovat niin laiskoja luokittelijoita (minäkin, valitettavasti) ja kuvat löytävät käyttötapoja. Toivottavasti jaksat jatkossakin luokitella kuvia. Kiitokset! Face-smile.svg kallerna 13:07, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Eipä kestä. Ehkä tämä luokitteluinto kuvastaa tällaista nörtti–insinöörimieltä. Face-smile.svg Ja kiitokset itsellesi hyvistä kuvista. (Minulla taas olisi tässä puolessa parannettavaa – nytkin odottaa iso kasa kuvia, että saisin ne käytyä läpi ja tallennettua parhaat Commonsiin...) --Apalsola tc 09:05, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
