Category:Photo credit[edit]

Hi, Bidgee, would you kindly be able to alter the comment on the file history of this image: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bob_hoskins_filming_ruby_blue.jpg to remove the middle name of the author (myself) please? Many thanks —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 2A02:C7D:C55F:2B00:959C:BB1B:C884:7384 (talk) 13:04, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Category:2012 Leeton SunRice Festival[edit]

Hi, Bidgee, I noticed your edit, though I do not quite understand what you mean when saying " makes it impossible to find". Thank you for your time. Face-smile.svg Lotje (talk) 10:05, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Well you'll need to jump though many hoops, by removing the main category (yes, not ideal having it but worse but not having it).
I hope you get the idea above as to why I state "makes it impossible to find". Bidgee (talk) 02:08, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Category:Buildings in Bathurst[edit]

I don't see why I should redirect Building in Bathurst to Building in Bathurst, New South Wales. Building in Bathurst could be at best a disambiguation page, since there are in the world at least three towns named "Bathurst", all of them with their own buildings. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 16:48, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't see the point in keeping the chronology of a category which has no copyright issues involved like in a wikipedia article (which is why we keep chronology), hence I don't even understand why you're still complaining about that. Anyway, since you seem to be passionate about the topic, I saved the category's chronology so I guess we all are satisfied now. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 09:46, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
I didn't mean to be rude, but as we know the main rationale of keeping chronology is for copyright issues, which is not much an issue for categories -- Ok, hereinafter I'll move them. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 12:25, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

McDonalds[edit]

Hi there, the actual restaurants of McDonald's are categorised in Category:McDonald's restaurants. This again is categorised under Category:Hamburger restaurants, which is a subcategory of Category:Fast food restaurants. The overall Category:McDonald's on the other hand, also contains museums, office buildings etcetera and it is therefore that I feel that it should not be categorised under Category:Fast food restaurants. - Takeaway (talk) 23:59, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Rodger that, I wasn't too sure why it was removed (I did have an edit summary but seems it didn't show) and have a bit on my mind ATM. Bidgee (talk) 11:56, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
I used HotCat to remove the category, and unfortunately HotCat doesn't give much of an edit summary. Regards, Takeaway (talk) 12:02, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Sydney Japanese International School[edit]

Are you interested in photographing the Sydney Japanese International School? It's at 112 Booralie Road, Terrey Hills, NSW 2084 Australia. It's unique among overseas Japanese schools since it actively includes Australian local children as students.

If you are interested in other ideas please let me know and I'll give you some others. Thanks! WhisperToMe (talk) 16:40, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Not sure when I'll be in Sydney next, quite busy with university and my other volunteering roles, which includes travelling to Melbourne and Nowra. Sorry. Bidgee (talk) 07:34, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Toyota Corona[edit]

Any reason for reversion of my edits to restore two Toyota Corona images back to factory specification? I note that you did not leave an explanation for your reversion which is odd considering the time I spent making the edits. OSX II (talk) 01:02, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

File:Apis mellifera feeding on nectar from a Corymbia ficifolia flower.jpg[edit]

No need to be flipping rude about it, sheesh. To be honest, you need to brush up the use of the rollback tool or have it removed.

Why did you revert the changes on this file? This is by no means a wolf spiders. These carry their cocoons at their spinnerets, not under the prosoma, and their eye field is completely different. --Mhohner (talk) 11:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Food for thought[edit]

Wouldn't it be better to have

  • Regional Express aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport

or

  • Regional Express Saab 340 aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport [option 1, if disam is required]

or

  • Regional Express aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport (Saab 340) [option 2, if disam is required]

Rather then;

  • Aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport
  • Saab 340 at Sydney Airport
  • Saab 340 on final approach
  • Regional Express aircraft at Sydney Airport

Just a thought... Bidgee (talk) 12:56, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

I see final approach, landing etc as an attribute of the aircraft model, not the airline. I.e. the destinations etc are an attribute of the airline, but flying characteristics are an attribute of the airplane type. An airplane type XYZ lands the same way for any airline. I think categories like Saab 340 landing at Sydney Airport would be over-categorization. I am available to discus this ! Rcbutcher (talk) 13:09, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Category:Scania K94UB[edit]

An explanation would not fit on one line, so I do it here. First of all I understand that we don't fully agree on what is best practice, based on earlier encounters. As you may have noticed, about one month ago I changed so that Category:Scania K-series and similar N and F are exclusively related to the current range (post 4-series). Despite my effort, I could not find one single use of the term "K-series" or similar by Scania officially prior to its introduction with the current range in 2005. (It may however have been used by some local distributor in some country prior to that, but local variants should not be considered at that level anyway.) Then it would be both historically and technically incorrect to use the current marketing name on the older ones, so I instead introduced the Category:Scania K chassis which even includes similar chassis before they were given the letter K at the introduction of the 2-series. (BR85, BR115 and BR145 in "0-series" and BR86 and BR116 in "1-series", but only one of these have been created yet due to lack of content.) Those updates were in line with my updates to the Scania article on English Wikipedia and the timelines that can be found at the bottom of the page there. However I was not sure what to do with K UB, K EB, N UB, etc., as they kind of fit both in the current range and to some extent in the 4-series. I have only found one source using N UB, K EB, etc. explicitly about the 4-series, which can be found here: Scania data sheets (choose Chassis range). Back then I didn't decide about it, but last week I decided that it would be best not to mix models from the 4-series and the current range within those cagetories. I am truly not sure what would be the best solution for this, but if the answer is that K UB should contain both 4-series and K-series models, my edits of last week should be reverted on the other models of the 4-series too.

John Robertson[edit]

See John Robertson. Apart that there's several people named John Robertson, at least two of whom are politicians who come from New South Wales, the disambiguation was inconsistent. Usually the disambiguation is by occupation and, whereas two or more persons share the same occupation, by year of birth. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 15:28, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Image reversion[edit]

I do not comprehend your comments at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:MotorolaStarTAC.jpg ... I removed the ridiculous background cleanly and lightened the image, helping people to see the subject. Why do you feel you have the right to claim this was done badly and to destroy this work without so much as leaving a comment? Pratyeka (talk) 01:49, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Category:VH-ZXB (Boeing 767-300ER)[edit]

Note your reversion of my edit. My edit was done as previous information was objected to by planespotters.net as being taken direct from their website without permission. They object to this throughout Wikimedia and many similar revisions will have to be made elsewhere as a result - hence my cutting down of the info to essentials. It would be good if you could revert to my edit and avoid conflict with planespotters.net which is a most useful info source. Ardfern (talk) 12:43, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

I take it as insult that "previous information was objected to by planespotters.net as being taken direct from their website without permission", when in fact I had sourced it from the FAA (along with FA and FR24) and the fact no one asked me(thought I had added it [as I have with others]) regardless PlaneSpotters.net do not own the information when it is already freely available on the FAA, therefore I will not revert it. Next time, don't use the "m" that isn't a minor edit and without an edit summary. Bidgee (talk) 12:50, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Help regarding FOP[edit]

Hello, Bidgee. I was thinking of Freedom of Panorama in India. I had a doubt. Since India has the right of FoP, is it okay for someone to charge money for taking photos of monuments like Taj Mahal? Is it okay for zoo owners to charge money for taking photos of animals? And is a person supposed to delete photos of a restricted area (some old monument) if the in-charge asks you provided you have taken the photos. Can you please clear my doubt?

VH-JSO category[edit]

there is 1 citationJet and 1 TBM, the category can't be both. [1] --Marc Lacoste (talk) 09:29, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes I'm well aware of that but it isn't an issue. I will be separating them when I have my Mac working smoothly but removing those categories was the wrong thing to do. Bidgee (talk) 09:34, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
what to do then? if you're searching for TBM pics and you get a CJ or viceversa it's an issue --Marc Lacoste (talk)
It will be split, similar to Category:VH-ZXF (aircraft) has been done. Bidgee (talk) 09:48, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Logical, what is the good way to do that if I find similar situations? --Marc Lacoste (talk)
I've noticed some people have put some registrations that have the aircraft type in brackets as its own main category (eg. Category:N582C (Socata TBM 700), rather than creating a main category (eg. Category:VH-JSO (aircraft); which is the cat system I'm using) which has sister categories (means the Aircraft registered in and Aircraft by registration becoming full of of same rego). Hope I haven't confused you. Bidgee (talk) 13:17, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

International[edit]

1933 International D1 at Bill Richardson Transport World, Invercargill, NZ.jpg
1930 International A4 at Bill Richardson Transport World, Invercargill, NZ.jpg

Hi Bidgee. I thought to settle the question of the name of the trucks before moving on to the various sub-categories.

Don't you think it better to settle a principle? I mean like following / not-following a recognised naming system for the categorisation? If Australia wants to be different there is some justification because I think they later built purely Australian trucks but I must admit that is only my impression and it may not be what actually happened. I think Navistar / IHC also have or had an operation in Brazil which I suppose should be handled the same way as Australia. You won't know this so I'll explain that my particular interest in images of old things (in this case old trucks) arises from the habit of most editors to be concerned only for things in Their recent past - quite recent for a 20 year-old, less so for someone in their forties. There is also a tendency for contributors to dodge categorisation, I think often because they don't know how to handle it. Have a look at this pair of images which I managed to spring out of a collector yesterday morning. She was only prepared to categorise them as trucks and also part of her collection. Regards, Eddaido (talk) 23:28, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

OK, no worries. I'd guess it's one of the aircraft listed as having their "Fin and rudder preserved at RAAF Base Amberley" in the article - given the number of aircraft with this status, it seems logical this was some kind of interim arrangement. Nick-D (talk) 10:00, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

Cessna aircraft at Wagga Wagga Airport[edit]

Hi Bidgee Your reversion of my edits re Category:Cessna aircraft at Wagga Wagga Airport and related Cessna 182 files leaves Wagga Wagga Airport out of step with other airports. The purpose is to ensure that the Private and executive aircraft category for Wagga Wagga Airport does become too crowded with individual files. This is the norm everywhere else. So please revert. Ardfern (talk) 14:35, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Putting unrelated aircraft (training, freight or other non-private/executive uses, which could be aircraft hire to skydiving) is incorrect categorisation. Two wrongs don't make it right (stating it is the norm elsewhere), so I will not revert myself. Bidgee (talk) 15:04, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Cessna 172S[edit]

Please note that for every other aircraft (see Airbus A320 etc etc) variants (eg Cessna 172S) of the main aircraft (Cessna 172) are not listed in a by registration cat. Only the main aircraft is in a by registration cat. Revert please as the Cessna 172S by registration cat is not required. Ardfern (talk) 21:37, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

So? Just because there isn't a category for the Airbus variants doesn't mean there shouldn't be. Using the "Bad Name" speedy delete was poor form from you, since it wasn't a bad name. No I will not be reverting. Bidgee (talk) 21:39, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Brilliant, just you keep on with your own little site completely out of step with the rest of aviation on Wikimedia. If you don't accept any of the norms or common practices fire away.Ardfern (talk) 21:47, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Sorry but YOU don't own nor run Commons. Should we have hundreds or even thousands variants in a single category? I'm not saying every single variant should have one but at least say A320-200 (aka A322). Bidgee (talk) 21:50, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
You are so right I don't own or run Commons (and of course neither do you), but I do have very large and long term experience of working on aircraft categorisation and try to ensure that the standards and norms and common practices that have developed are maintained and developed. The objective is consistency so that researchers etc can easily find and view aircraft files. What you have done with Cessna 172S is completely inconsistent with the rest of Commons and even the rest of Cessna 172 variants (whether you think it is right or wrong). Your reversions have also now ensured that one cannot see a full list of Cessna 172 registrations in one place. With regard to Airbus A320 you can see a full list of all Airbus A320s by registration in one place. You can also see a full list of each variant (eg Airbus A320-232) just not with a by registration file name. This is simply what I wanted to do with the Cessna 172S ie the files all appear in the cat Cessna 172S and the aircraft also appear in the Cessna 172 by registration cat ie consistency.

Never said I did, I'm using commonsense and you're using your ego (by saying "but I do have very large and long term experience of working on aircraft categorisation and try to ensure that the standards and norms and common practices that have developed are maintained and developed"). So you want over-categorisation by having Cessna 172S and Cessna 172 by registration? With the latter being littered with hundreds of different variants? I've not had anyone else say to me that want what you want. I'll be happy if you opened up a discussion to other aviation contributors so that they can add in there thoughts on how categorisation should be (rather than just from our own prospective, because clearly we both have differing views). Bidgee (talk) 22:18, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Commonsense v ego, you are a laugh. Happy to have discussion opened. Go for it Ardfern (talk) 22:34, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Commas[edit]

I used brackets, not comma because that's what the WP article is even though I think that commas are correct, w:WP:COMMADIS would suggest that commas are correct. Oddly settlements in Australia are often disambiguated even when not necessary. Thanks for fixing it anyway. Crouch, Swale (talk) 12:29, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Wikidata infoboxes[edit]

Dear Bidgee, Could you please add Family names in Wikidata before creating Wikidata infoboxes in Commons? And please do not remove Defaultsort in Commons unless a Family name is added in the Wikidata item. Otherwise sorting becomes a mess, see this category. Vysotsky (talk) 20:06, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
