Queensland local government[edit]

Hi Bidgee. Absolutely no pressure at all but did we make any progress with the individual LG maps for infoboxes? If not, that's OK - it was a huge job. I haven't been out and about for photos lately - hopefully next month. -- Mattinbgn (talk) 03:51, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Just needing to replace the hard drive (close to failing) on the computer that I use for mapping, hoping to have it running again later in the week. Bidgee (talk) 05:09, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Old socks/RFCU[edit]

Hi Bidgee. Through checks and contribs, I've determined that Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/Rukshanawahab are early accounts of sockmaster Jermboy27. I've re-tagged the Rukshanawahab socks to demonstrate the connection and avoid any future confusion. If you see further accounts like these with edits on roadsigns, please block them as socks of JB27. Thanks. INeverCry 19:20, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Categories of File:LED traffic light.jpg[edit]


Category:Traffic lights at green state is a sub-category of Category:Green light. Thus with your revert File:LED traffic light.jpg is categorized two times into Category:Green light (one times directly, one time as part of Category:Traffic lights at green state.Torsch (talk) 14:08, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Road signs copyright and no exemption under FOP[edit]

Hi Bidgee,

I have been tooling around some Riverina articles on WP recently and have spruced up a couple of images as I go. I uploaded a new version of File:Entering Old Junee.jpg and in less than 24 hours later it was nommed for deletion as likely having creative rights and having no FOP exemption for 2D artwork. A bit of a surprise but there you go. It might have implications for some images in Australia and articles on WP that use them such as Millwood.

Some thoughts include; are these images worth going into bat for? What would the owners of the rights want? (Presumably the councils involved. They may wish to give permission to use to retain images in the project.) That maybe an OTRS issue.

Appreciate your thoughts. Bleakcomb (talk) 06:22, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

FOP for 2D, even if it's in the public space, isn't "free". Thankfully Queensland Government has made its road signs free under the CC-BY-SA license. With town signs, I think the only hope is to get OTRS permissions. Bidgee (talk) 13:59, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Re:Flag of the Minister of Defence of Chile.svg[edit]

Hello Bidgee: I don't want to start an edit-warring. So that's why I left a message on the Administrator's page. Many times I tried to explain my reasons and sources to Fry1989, but it seems that he prefers the confrontation instead the collaboration. Best regards, --Echando una mano (talk) 02:58, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

You both edit warred before the AN/U topic was created. Collaboration is more then just uploading, it is also discussing when conflicts arise. You will have people who have different view points, this is were a civil discussion becomes helpful to work towards a positive out come (even if it doesn't end in your favour). Bidgee (talk) 03:04, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
I'll try to talk to him about this, but I'm not who have a lot of conflicts with other users. And I am always polite to others. --Echando una mano (talk) 03:17, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Now there is no problem. It's not necessary the dialog with anybody... the file is lock indefinitely. Regards, --Echando una mano (talk) 01:39, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

category on Gymnorhina tibicen[edit]

Because it serves no useful purpose, and also acts as a diversion away from useful categorisation (people use junk categories like this as a dumping ground for (± unidentified) birds, where they then get lost, instead of properly using the species category, or category:unidentified birds). I am planning to propose the category for deletion. - MPF (talk) 23:24, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
