Hello, Briarfallen!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

DONE adding the categories. I apologize for the error on my part.

A barnstar for you![edit]

Barnstar of Diligence Hires.png The Barnstar of Diligence
Thanks for your help, your philosophy of making Wikimedia a better place for the researchers, the new generation and those who, like many Filipinos, have a little learning of the internet research on photography. Best New Year 2014. Ramon FVelasquez (talk) 23:45, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Double level categories[edit]

Hi Briarfallen, thanks for all your efforts in categorizing images. Just another tip: I noticed you added Category:Churches in Iloilo to File:Cabatuan Iloilo.jpg. But that is not necessary since Category:Saint Nicholas of Tolentino Church in Cabatuan, Iloilo is already a subcategory of Category:Churches in Iloilo. Same with File:Jaro Church.jpg where you also added Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Iloilo. But Category:Jaro Cathedral is already a subcategory of Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Iloilo and Category:Churches in Iloilo. So, those categories are double level categories and therefore not to be added. See COM:CAT. Maraming salamat po. --P 1 9 9   20:22, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

I was just trying to put one file from each folder in the category (just the facade of the churches) to represent the churches with folders in the lower section. If you don't think that's a good idea, that's fine by me, I could remove them. I am familiar with over-categorizing and have been cleaning up other categories. Please tell that to User:Ramon FVelasquez, it seems he doesn't want to follow that rule. His recent uploads still have some doubles. I reminded him about it, but... Thanks. Briarfallen (talk) 20:43, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Briarfallen for your editing my works. I deeply understand the I am slow in learning these, difficult categories. But rest assured, that, I will try my best to put just few if not 1 or 2 categories in my uploads. I am concentrated on taking pictures, at age 60, I am overtaken by these technologies, and if you give me examples, I may be able to understand better. Thanks again and apology for my slow learning.--Ramon FVelasquez (talk) 01:18, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
There is no practice on Commons of adding 1 image to the parent category, and I don't think that would be a good idea; that may become confusing and water-down the main category. And yes, I have been sorting out images of Ramon Velasquez for a long time, and left numerous comments on his talk page. His answer above about being a slow learner is getting tiresome. He seems to be more concerned about setting some upload record than quality (whether in image, description, and categorization quality). Anyway, I appreciate your efforts. -- P 1 9 9   14:40, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

your recent posting at Ramon FVelasquez' talkpage[edit]

Hi Briarfallen, by the unnecessarily aggressive and AGF-violating wording (for example: 3x ABUSING) of your posting at Ramon FVelasquez' talkpage you rather invalidate the likely justified concerns about Ramon's uploads/edits, in addition to the fact that you have hurted him and make him feel threatened[1]. Instead of doing this by myself, I would ask you to tone down the wording of your posting[2] and remove clear PAs, such as "You are a MISGUIDED individual". In addition, by mixing up of the cited problems and your interpretation in your posting, you are making it unnecessarily difficult for Ramon to get a clear message about how to improve. --Túrelio (talk) 12:02, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

I only told him that he is misguided because he does not want to follow Wikipedia rules. His purpose here in Commons is to load as much pictures as possible, because he thinks that this is a quantity game and not quality; he even uploaded blurry ones and pictures that make no sense as these would count as an upload. I have told him about this problem before on November 19, 2013 (Please see User talk:Ramon FVelasquez/Archive 3#Unclear descriptions). He does not select what's the best among his pictures of the same subjects even though a lot of people have already talked to him about this problems besides myself, but still he disregard our suggestion and keeps on doing what he knows thinks is right.
He does not give the proper description of the file content. He only gives one generic description that is good for a group of his uploads and change it a little bit for the other uploads. He gives article-long descriptions.(For example, one of his recent descriptions: File:Mailajf9457 13.JPG). I told him on Nov. 20, 2013 (User talk:Ramon FVelasquez/Archive 3#Unclear descriptions) that according to Commons:First steps/Quality and description#Good file descriptions (under Description), Description should be what you see, hear, or otherwise perceive on the picture only. I told him what not to put, but then he never listens. My perception is he believes that the more the better. Because of these extra unnecessary information that he put on the description, he messed up the SEARCH results on items about the Philippines. Non-related items will show up on searches because the Commons search results are based on the description of each files.
He does not follow the rule about OVER-CATEGORIZATION. I talked to him about this problem on December 21, 2013 (User talk:Ramon FVelasquez/Archive 3#Over-categorization) but still he does not follow them. But still, his recent uploads like, e.g., Category:Plaza Lacson have items both on this and Category:Arsenio Lacson - (I have removed some of the overcat today)). Other editors like User:P199, have complained about this as well. (User talk:Ramon FVelasquez/Archive 2#Request for adoption. It's not just myself who is getting frustrated, please read the entry above this. But Ramon just do whatever he wants.
And now his new "thing" is making up many unnecessary categories so that he can put his pictures on all of them. For example, he recently created Category:China–Philippines relations, Category:Chinese Filipino,Category:Filipino-Chinese Bridge of Friendship, Category:Manila Chinatown, Chinese New Year 2014, which are related categories and have a lot of common files, even though one is a sub-category of the others or vice versa. (I already recategorize Category:Manila Chinatown, Chinese New Year 2014). Another example Category:IBPS Manila and Category:Fo Guang Shan Mabuhay Temple (Malate) which are subcategories of each other, and both categories have the same files inside.... Still, he does not give the proper description for each picture on his recent uploads, e.g. File:Mailajf9457 13.JPG, File:ChurchofSantaCruzjf0162 13.JPG, File:ManilaChinatownjf0180 07.JPG, each file description is similar to all the sets. The file File:Binondojf0257 23.JPG is about a bakery in Chinatown but nothing is mentioned about the place being a bakery except the description is full of nonsense trivia, neither it is categorized as a bakery. Over-categorization recent examples: File:Binondojf0257 15.JPG, this file is on the following categories: Category:Manila Chinatown, Category:Sincerity Café and Restaurant, and Category:Binondo, Manila. Category:Sincerity Café and Restaurant is also inside the Category:Manila Chinatown and the Chinatown is inside Category:Binondo, Manila.
He does not follow the rule on creating new categories per Commons:Categories#Creating a new category which states on the first line: "Do a thorough search, to be sure there isn't an existing category that will serve the purpose." We already had the category Category:Knox United Methodist Church in Manila but he started his own Category:Knox United Methodist Church, which is the same church. Another example is Category:San Miguel Church, Manila and made his own under Category:National Shrine of St. Michael and the Archangels. Another example is Category:Baclaran Church, and he created Category:National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help (and there are more). He knew that the other category existed because he put some files on both categories. I already fixed the problem by moving the files into the larger category. He is clearly abusing his power to make categories. And I think he should be banned or stopped.
I edit Philippine-related articles and categorize files here on Wikipedia and Commons because I would like to present them, to the best of my capabilities, at par with the good articles. I don't want other nationalities think that we are inferior, ignorant about following rules, uncaring or selfish. I owe Ramon an apology, but I also felt helpless, as talking to him nicely has no effect. He doesn't care about Commons rules, show any effort in improving his skills, or follow any recommendations. He is blinded by quantity, he would put his files in as much categories as possible, even though they are not related to the Categories. To prove my point, his new Category:Filipino-Chinese Bridge of Friendship is in the following categories:Category:Bridges in the Philippines; Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Metro Manila (even though is not a Cultural heritage monuments); Category:Binondo, Manila; Category:Manila Chinatown; Category:Manila Chinatown, Chinese New Year 2014 (this has no relation to the bridge); Category:Chinese Filipino; Category:China–Philippines relations; and Category:Chinatowns in Asia (the bridge is not a Chinatown). Some of these categories are sub-categories of the other.
You see, User:Ramon FVelasquez is defiant on following Commons rules. Do you, Túrelio, have any suggestions? Thanks. -- Briarfallen (talk) 02:45, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
One thing you have in common with Ramon is to create excessively long postings ;-). Currently I don't have the time to read that all.
Anyway, I criticized only your wording, not your concerns about Ramon's uploading and editing. Just in short: I can and will tell Ramon that he needs to be more selective at upload and take more care about what to upload and what not. This is a thing he has to do by himself, as we can only delete unusable images. However, this is not simply a black/white question, as you may be aware. Quite a number of other users upload 10 or more photos from the same thing, just taken from slightly different angles.
About the categorizing: if you think he permanently fails to do this basicly correct, would it be an acceptable "solution" to request him to add just 1 cat (for example, the town) to each image and leave the fine-tuning completely to other users? --Túrelio (talk) 08:11, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Too bad you don't have the patience to read what I wrote as our problems with User:Ramon FVelasquez are really that long. It looks longer because I added evidences (links) to support my complaints about him. But basically it ends up with him not following rules on Commons and makes a lot of excuses why he can't do them - he is obsessed with quantity but does not care about quality (in description and categories). What he does is Over-Over-categorization. (yes two 'overs' as he would make two to four related categories and fill them up with the same pictures, simply because he can do it and no one is stopping him.) Please read his talk page on his position about this matter.

Regarding your suggested "solution", I don't think you can just tell him that, and he will obliged. Plus he loads like 100-350 each upload., please think how long will it take to change the categories on each files (including the description). -- Briarfallen (talk) 05:30, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

I fully agree with you Briarfallen on all the foregoing. We have told him already a long time ago, but he doesn't care. Actually, now I'm starting to think that he just doesn't get it or is clueless. Just look at the massive long-winded spiritual dissertation I got after my last message to him. It is mostly off-topic and irrelevant. So I don't know what he is thinking... A good solution would be if Ramon uploaded his images to Flickr or similar site under a compatible license and we take from there what we need. -- P 1 9 9   17:01, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes, he thinks only about his convenience and promoting his pictures here on Commons disregarding Wikipedia rules about Categories. He makes a lot of excuses and I wish he would do something to fix them. His creation of similar categories that are related and dumping all of them with his pictures is just shameless. Your suggestion of uploading his pictures on Flickr and giving them the public domain tag would be a great solution. BTW, thanks also for your work and concern about Philippine-related articles and files here at Commons and Wikipedia. -- Briarfallen (talk) 17:40, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Re: Category and description[edit]

On behalf of User:Ramon FVelasquez and by way of rejoinder to the above-talk-discussion - we state that Ramon on short Wikibreak awaits the sentiment, stance and position of Commons via its administrators, on whether, Ramon may opt to retire, or continue vis-a-vis the voice of 1 editor that he must be banned or stopped because of defiance on category and description problems. He explained that in as much as He would follow the requests of herein editors, still, there are factors that prevents him from so doing. Regarding Flicker and other sites to share his photos, he states that he has shared thousands of his photos in FB, in Flicker, photobucket, friendster and even in 140 forums. He has had enough for them. It is purely gratuitous and Ramon as giver, has never set any onerous condition upon his gift of photos. He has even donated freely via copy from memory card to computer in Philippines, his original files of Nikon and Sony photos since 2010. The problem he says about further sharing with Flicker and free sites for Commons, with license, is that, Ramon is vulnerable to deletion if any of his detractors would find the photos against their religious beliefs or spiritual discernment. In one instance, 700 photos were removed in photobucket without notice because of politics. Here in Commons, there is due process of substance before erasure of photos. Ramon has even offered to have his photos copied by means of this manner: if you are in Philippines, he or we can let you copy paste his photos using a card reader, putting in there his memory card, Transcend of 600 photos each, then, copy in your computer or USB and you are free to upload any and all and be the one to describe and categorize. That is the only option available to gratuitously share the photos. Ramon cannot email you the photos since the process is too slow, that is the same here, about only 90 photos per 2 hours. The problem with description and category is not so great as to cover 110,000 of his photos but say, only about 1,000 of them. He said that his mistakes happen, when during the times of closing of the Internet shop, he is forced to upload the about 200 photos, for he wasted 2 hours for them and he has to go and photo again the next day from 6 am to 11 pm to Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao and Quezon. On over-category, he only wanted his photos to reach as many readers as possible. Thus, he never objected to your editing, deleting any description, photo or category. At any rate, Ramon is willing if time allows and destiny, to put his photos in just 1 or 2 categories, and the description, in its proper perspective. We await the reply of any administrator for Ramon believes that time and only time will determine the course of Commons. Sincerely for Ramon-- 15:26, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Philippines historical marker images[edit]

Hello Briarfallen, you removed certain categories from the following files: File:Historical Marker for Andres Bonifacio at Lawton.JPG‎‎, File:Historical Marker at the San Francisco Church in Naga City.jpg‎ and File:Historical Marker at the Church of Nuestra Señora de Peña de Francia.JPG without giving any reasons. I reverted you on the last one of them but thought it better to ask you before doing the same with the rest. In particular, why did you remove categories like Category:Churches built in 1711, Category:National Historical Commission of the Philippines and Category:Monuments and memorials in Manila from these files. Best, Rahul Bott (talk) 15:26, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Rahul, I didn't give any reasons for not removing some categories because I used HotCat, which has no option of adding a reason on Commons, unlike when using it in Wikipedia. I removed the all the NHCP category from all of them because of over-categorization (per Commons:Overcat) as the parent category of the all Historical markers in the Philippines is the NHCP. When I removed the Category:Churches built in 1711 from File:Historical Marker at the Church of Nuestra Señora de Peña de Francia.JPG, I was supposed to add it to its main category of Category:Peñafrancia Shrine, but forgot to do it afterwards. But now, it's all done. Sorry for forgetting.
Same with File:Historical Marker for Andres Bonifacio at Lawton.JPG‎‎, just like the NHCP category, all historical markers also have Category:Monuments and memorials in Manila as a parent category, so there is no need for this category. All of these cleaning up is done to avoid category clutter, please also read WP:Overcategorization. Thanks. -- Briarfallen (talk) 04:52, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi again, I understand OVERCAT (at least somewhat). Just got confused because I did not find the removed categories as a parent for any of the other categories. Thanks for clarifying and teaching me :-) Rahul Bott (talk) 18:08, 12 February 2014 (UTC)


Commons barnstar.png The Commons Barnstar
Hi Briarfallen, I already gave you a barnstar on Wikipedia, time now for one here at Commons. We're both working on sorting out Philippine images and categories, so I know how much work this is (especially sorting out images of RFVelasquez = Judgefloro - that alone deserves a barnstar). Thanks for your hard work. -- P 1 9 9   14:31, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, P199. I only edit in Wikipedia and Commons for the sake of Philippine articles, file and categories, not expecting any in return. I stopped believing in Barnstars as they can can sometimes blind other editors into false achievements. As long as I'm doing this for the sake of presenting the Philippines to the world and abiding within the rules of Commons or Wikimedia, I'm satisfied. I appreciate your recognition anyway. -- Briarfallen (talk) 22:31, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
  • It is admirable that you don't expect anything in return. On other hand I want to express my appreciation, and since barnstars are the established way of recognizing somebody's achievements or efforts, I use barnstars. Unless you award a barnstar to yourself, I don't think it gives a false impression. Regards, -- P 1 9 9   16:29, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi to both of you. As member of the Philippine judiciary, our judicial system has been accused of corruption based on SWS2006 surveys. As Philippine magistrate, I, like you and Judge Florentino Floro, have one thing in common: integrity and good faith. The last thing we will do is to engage in using Commons by illegal means. Hence, rest assured that, User:Judgefloro uploads photos of Judge Florentino Floro, the real one of Br. 73, RTC, Malabon who granted permission by donation inter vivos of any and almost all of his photos to many members of the Judiciary and his friends. I can upload here a letter of Judge Floro's Donation of Inter Vivos of his photos to me. We appreciate how much work you have done, not only in creating maps, stub Philippine articles by User:TheCoffee and improvement thereof. May I suggest that you bring the matter to the Commons Administrators or Help Desk, in accordance with due process of law, to determine if User:Judgefloro should be stopped from uploading or the account be declared sockpuppet instead. Thanks so much for your times, and I reiterate that User:Judgefloro has began uploading since, lately based on the invitation years ago by a User here, uploading Nikon photos of Florentino Floro, the Philippine Judge and photographer. Cheers.-- 23:59, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

There is no rule against User:Judgefloro or User:Ramon FVelasquez being stopped from uploading. The problem with him is he is not following the RULES or LAWS of Commons on over-categorizing and categories, which other editors and myself have reiterated to him. He is not following the rules on Descriptions (that is, describe only what is shown on a particular picture, nothing more) giving unnecessary general descriptions thereby messing up the SEARCH results on Commons. He is not following the hierarchy of category levels and create unnecessary categories. He is only thinking about himself as he is concerned more about promoting his pictures. (Voluntary work should be a selfless act, never asking for something in return.) I have brought this problems on his talk page but still he is not following. Since he doesn't want to follow any rules, I ONLY SUGGESTED that he should join 'Flickr' or maybe 'WikiPilipinas' instead, since they are more lax with rules there. We, myself and User:P199, are just making Ramon or Jugefloro follow the rules of Commons in order to preserve the integrity of Commons and Wikipedia; and for the sake of the Philippine-related categories and files here. Nothing in our hearts is for personal gain.

Also, please stop sending messages from IP addresses whether you are Ramon, Judgefloro or one of his 'so-called' friends, that is just cowardly. Do you know that you are traceable? This just shows what your character is. -- Briarfallen (talk) 22:31, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Category:Base Memorial Hospital, Tagudin, Ilocos Sur[edit]

For future reference, please don't nominate populated categories for deletion, you can first request User:CommonsDelinker/commands to move images if you don't want to do it yourself.--KTo288 (talk) 16:04, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I always empty the categories before I submit them. I preview them and make sure that they are empty. The last one I did, I emptied it right before I pressed 'Save page'. Maybe there was a short delay. I apologize if that has happened. Thanks. -- Briarfallen (talk) 16:14, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Category:Saint Dominic de Guzman Parish Church (Abucay, Bataan)[edit]

FYI, I changed those names you suggested slightly, and moved them... then I looked at the category, and discovered they are all like that, so I flagged the whole category as 'renames requiring a target'. My version of the names might not have been the greatest, either, but I didn't realize at the time there were over 80 of them. An admin should handle it with the 'mass rename' tool at some point, unless you really want to flag them all individually. Tedious, tho. Revent (talk) 07:39, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Revent, thanks for renaming the ones I submitted, but I only submitted a few. I didn't know that there's an admin tool that can do a mass rename. How can I make the submission for mass renaming? There are several categories made by the same uploader with massive unidentifiable file names as he use the upload wizard. BTW, Is there a tool that can erased file descriptions as well? Before, the same uploader used to put a lot of junk information not related to what the file actually is, thereby screwing up the SEARCH results. I tried replacing them one by one but it took a lot of time. Thanks for the info, and the renaming. -- Briarfallen (talk) 12:21, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Manually add the entire category (not the files) to Category:Media renaming requests needing target‎. As far as the other, you could use VFC (Visual File Change) to do a 'batch task' if the change was always exactly the same, or use AWB (Auto Wiki Browser) in 'manual' mode (instead of it's purpose as an 'automatic' editor, you can simply use AWB to edit a list of pages in sequence without having to actually load the rendered page and then hit edit). Either way, though, you should be careful to review the results if you do it in an 'automatic' way.. the advantage of AWB in 'manual' is just that it's a more efficient way to get to the source of each page.

Hello, Briar. There is a proposal for a style guideline for image descriptions at the Village Pump. Previously, you have expressed an opinion about such formatting. Please feel free to join in the discussion! — hike395 (talk) 18:17, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
