Hi. Jim.henderson (talk) 20:28, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so much for introducing me to this wonderful tool. Atsme Talk 📧 21:47, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
Jim.henderson - help!! *lol* Re: the most recent 21 images (1 is a video) that I uploaded - well, I forgot to add them to Category:Photographs by User:Atsme when I was doing the categorization. I attempted to use cat-a-lot after-the-fact but it didn't work as easy for me as it did you when you were showing me how. I opened User uploads, opened the Cat-a-lot feature, highlighted all 21 images and that's where it ended. I don't know what to do next to add the 21 images/video to the catalogue all at once. Can you help? Atsme Talk 📧 13:58, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
I don't have much time at this moment; must do a few things quickly and begone for a few hours. Meanwhile, you can look at Help:Gadget-Cat-a-lot and see if it helps. Quick searches in Commons, in Youtube, and on the wide Web by Google, has failed to see a video on this topic. I am hoping to give a lightning talk about it in a few months; ought to prepare and publish a slide show beforehand. Jim.henderson (talk) 20:03, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
Finished quicker than expected. I see you have moved some files by Cat-a-lot but I fail to see the purpose for some of the moves. Category:Categories requiring permanent diffusion to zero, to pick the most prominent example, is only for categories, not for files. It has thousands of subcategories but, at the moment, no files except the ones you added by Cat-a-lot. Was this an error? Jim.henderson (talk) 20:03, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
LOL - Don't try to figure those out - they are mistakes and why I pinged you for help. 😊 Atsme Talk 📧 20:05, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
Ah. I was going to leave it as an exercise for you but didn't say so, so one of our most thoughtful admins, Auntof6 used Cat-a-lot to expel those files from the inappropriate category. You still should use that tool to copy the lot of them into appropriate categories. As it happens, it becomes more clumsy (at least for me) when used in a category with too long a list of subcats, so I'm extra careful about whether to move files into cats of that size. If the thing you wish to do remains difficult, perhaps you should explain the problem in more detail. Jim.henderson (talk) 01:25, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
FYI, I am not an admin here. :) I just keep an eye on some of the categories that shouldn't contain files, so I saw those. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:29, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, Auntof6. I don't know why categories cause me problems when it should be a very simple Category:Photographs by User:Atsme or is it a Subcategory? Anyway, that's the one that trips me up - it appears to be a subcategory of User:Atsme. In order for my images to be added to Category:Photographs by User:Atsme (which actually does exist), it appears I have to upload them to my UP first? I encountered issues trying to add that category during the bulk upload process when one has to enter all the info, like caption, description, location, categories, etc. Jim, I'll try to study the help page tomorrow. ??? Enjoy the weekend!! Atsme Talk 📧 01:54, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
I hope you're getting this straightened out. Categories are in a family tree. Every category is a subcategory or child of at least one other category, usually a few, who are its parent cats. Many, perhaps the majority, of categories have subcats. Thus, my personal Category:Jim Henderson (Wikipedian) has, at this moment, six subcategories, two being for pictures of me and four for pictures by me. Maybe my personcat will grow so big that I want to insert intermediate categories. Those will be kittens of the personal cat, and they will be parental cats of the categories of places I got pictures, but my personal category tree doesn't have to be so complex this year.
My personcat also has, currently, seven mama cats that are out in the open, and two more that are hiding. One reason my categories have so many mothers is, I use my real name, and much other information about me is also open for all to see. This is under the assumption that hiding in the Internet will only succeed in hiding us from our friends; our enemies will find us anyway. Others don't make that assumption, so they don't let it all hang out in the open. Jim.henderson (talk) 15:33, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Thank you Jim! It is all saved right here on my UTP for easy reference. At the moment, I am involved in a very unpleasant time sink at the en.WP's ARCA noticeboard. It exemplifies the reason I hung out a semi-retired sign on en.WP UTP - the POV warriors have worn me down and I have pretty much lost what little incentive I had remaining to create/edit/help promote GA/FA articles, especially when one has to fight POV warriors who create and protect coatracks thinking they can influence an American election. 😂 Hope you're doing well.

Cats - not the musical.
Yipes, that looks like a dreadful case. It's the kind that made me retire years ago from Wikipedia writing about politics, and keep to more productive activities. I see my stalwart friend David, DGG is involved, thus confirming that it's far too heavy for my tender soul. Also I never saw much fun in promoting pretty good articles into something that can gain recognition for quality. I prefer to push horribly bad articles into mediocrity, and even more often I happily categorize old pictures, tonight's crop being postcards from eastern Massachusetts and southern India. Ask more questions, if my writing omitted something important. Jim.henderson (talk) 01:48, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
Jim.henderson, I too prefer to work with the stuff at the bottom. I'm not sure why--a weakness for bedraggled stray cats, perhaps? DGG (talk) 04:47, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Science Competition 2019[edit]

Logo for Wiki Science Competition

Dear uploader of European Science Photo Competition 2015 and Wiki Science Competition 2017, we would like to remind you that Wiki Science Competition 2019 has started in the whole world. It is now completed in Russia (active in May), Ukraine and France (active during November), but it's still open in all the other countries.

If you want to take part where WSC2019 is still open, please consult this page. There is also an international upload category with no national prize.

If you are an expert user, please consider that images uploaded within the deadline can be included in any case in the [[:c::Category:Images from Wiki Science Competition 2019 by country|national categories]] even if not uploaded with the main interface.

Please keep in mind that there is a new category this year, i.e. "nature and wildlife".

If you already took part in a country that has completed its upload phase please consider improving the description in English of your files (click on the edit button), since such description is what the international jury will use to evaluate such files at next step. World finalists will be finalized after March 2020.

Sorry for bothering you and have a nice wiki.
