Bitte beachten COM:OVERCAT, Buildings in Osnabrück ist logischerweise bereits in Osnabrück drin. --A.Savin 19:53, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Zu jeder Themenkategorie gehört mind. die Überkategorie zu WAS und WO (zB bei Category:Water towers in Kreis Pinneberg, habe ich hinzugefügt). Solange Sie sich nicht mit Help:Categories vertraut gemacht haben, sollten Sie nicht im grossen Stil Kategorien anlegen, das schadet der Struktur und Transparenz. Thanks --A.Savin 20:03, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Danke, ich werde es soweit ergänzen --Bardenoki (talk) 20:26, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Hallo Bardenoki,

ich habe gesehen, dass Du bei vielen Dateien die Kategorie Cultural heritage monuments hinzufügst. Dateien mit einer Denkmalvorlage werden automatisch in der jeweiligen Ortskategorie als Denkmal eingetragen. Beispiel hierfür ist diese Grabstätte in Iserlohn. Die Denkmal-Vorlage findest Du hier. Da nicht jeder weiß, dass ein Grabstein denkmalgeschützt ist, wurde der Grabstein auch noch in der allgemeinen Kategorie Iserlohn belassen. Gruß --Asio 21:54, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Asio,
danke für den Hinweis. jetzt versteht ich auch, woher die Kategorie Cultural heritage monuments... kommt, obwohl sie nicht explizit eingetragen ist. Allerdings stellt sich mir dann die Frage, ob man durch die zusätzliche Angabe der Kategorie Iserlohn nicht bei COM:OVERCAT landet, da Iserlohn schon in Culutural heriatage monuments in Iserlohn enthalten ist. Gruß Bardenoki (talk) 07:48, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Bardenoki, Du hast recht. In Iserlohn gehört es nicht nochmal rein. Das obige Beispielbild ist auch in der Kategorie Friedhof und wird somit gefunden. Gruß --Asio 22:09, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Category:Cornelis Steenbergh and Categories about Medemblik[edit]

Dear Bardenoki,

I think you made a mistake by deleting Category:Cornelis Steenbergh on a number of photographs by CS and putting whole categories about Medemblik in Category:Cornelis Steenbergh. Why?

  1. single photographs made by CS must logically be in Category:Cornelis Steenbergh, even when a house in Medemblik is depicted. Otherwise, the Category:Cornelis Steenbergh would not be complete.
  2. a category with photo's by various photographers cannot logically be a subcategory in the Category:Cornelis Steenbergh. Otherwise, any category containing just 1 photo by CS would be a subcategory of Category:Cornelis Steenbergh.

I hope that you agree with me changing the categories back. Kind regards, Hansmuller (talk) 11:03, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello Hansmuller,
of course your are right. Sorry, that was my mistake. I guess I thought that "Cornelis Steenberg" was the architect. I will take care in future on this. Thanks for changing the categories and pictures back. Regards, Bardenoki (talk) 11:26, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Amazing work[edit]

Hello Bardenoki,

I want to thank you for all your amazing work with the categorization of the Rijksmonumenten. Thanks!

Mvg, Basvb (talk) 21:35, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi Basvb,
thanks a lot. It's something like a treasure hunt ;O) Kind regards Bardenoki (talk) 16:02, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi, Yesterday I've uploaded around 4000 images of mills. The images can be found in Category:Mills in the Netherlands. I saw that you were categorizing some already, which is wonderful. I found that the easiest way to categorize those is to go to the Rijksmonumenten in XXX category, and move them with cat-a-lot to their relevant mill (which is mostly mentioned in the first line). I leave them in Category:Mills in the Netherlands because it is possible to remove them from this category using "perform batch task" (I can do this in 10 minutes for the whole category (see the regex if you're familiar with the perform batch task)). Mvg, Basvb (talk) 12:58, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi Basvb, great! I will help to categorize the mills. A short holiday from possible rijksmonumenten in Zierikzee ;O) Realy great, especially because they are all tagged with their monument id. So it is easy to find the category for most of the mills. In stead of working in teh category "Rijksmonumenten in XXX" I prefer to search for (e.g.) "12345 rijksmonumenten mills". This should deliver all the new pictures and the category. Then I will add the category by cat-a-lot. Finally I open all the new pictures and remove the rijksmonumentaten category and the mill in NL category. Maybe there is a more efficient way do the last step, but I find it hard to identify a mill only by its picture ("working in Rijksmonumenten in XXX") and I would like to start in "Mills in the Netherlands" as the category containing all the mills that have to be categorized, so I have to remove the "Mills in ..." category too. Regards, Norbert Bardenoki (talk) 17:11, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi Bardenoki, nice! I think your way is better for accuracy. Mvg, Basvb (talk) 21:03, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Removing historical images[edit]

Bardenoki, I have seen that you removed the Category:Historical images of Arnhem in File:Arnhem willemsplein 1963.jpg. This is a photo of (a part of) the Willemsplein in 1963. The category Historical images specifies clearly that historical means more than about 40 years old. 2015-1963= 52 years. That the photo is in colour was special in that time as black and white was the usual type of photo. I reverted your change. Regards, Wouter (talk) 20:54, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello Wouter, yes I saw that you reverted my edit. Ok, if you think so. Let me explain why I removed the category: there are tons of "historical images" of Arnhem in the sense, that they are older than 40 years. Most of the RCE pictures fulfill this criterion. See e.g. category Category:Possible Rijksmonumenten in Arnhem of not identified "possible rijksmonumenten". Or all the other images showing rijksmonumenten taken by RCE. Would you like to categorize all of those images as "historical images"? For me the image was "only" one of all those old pictures. But I agree that a colour picture of 1963 is something special. Kind regards, Bardenoki (talk) 21:09, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

File:Klarenbeek Stenen Tafel watertoren.jpg[edit]

Beste Bardenoki Waarom moets bij dit bestand de categorie Rijksmonumenten in Arnhem verdwijnen? Haagschebluf (talk) 21:43, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Hallo Haagschebluf, auch hier gibt es die neue Kategorie Category:De Steenen Tafel (Arnhem). Die ist als Rijksmonument in Arnhem kategorisiert und fasst alle Bilder zur "Steenen Tafel" zusammen. Sonst haben wir hier COM:OVERCAT. Gruß Bardenoki (talk) 21:57, 8 March 2015 (UTC)


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

A barnstar for you![edit]

I see that you're still going strong identifying thousands of images of Rijksmonumenten a week. I recently took a look again at Category:Possible Rijksmonumenten and saw that it was quite a bit more empty. A few days ago I found an easy way to count the number of Possible Rijksmonumenten using this search. 4 days ago it was at 78.900 now it is at 77.800. Sadly I did not find this out much earlier, but I believe we started with between 200 and 300.000. The fact that lowering this number for the most part has been done by you and Rudolphous is truly amazing. I saw that the RCE currently lists 750.000 images at their site. Time for me to upload some more soon? Basvb (talk) 21:06, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi Bas, thank you for the honour! It is a pleasure for me to work on this topic :O) And there is still work for some years left. Concerning a new upload: Do whatever you want. Kind regards, Norbert. Bardenoki (talk) 19:30, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
