RFC Joyce Green site map 1911 airfield[edit]

Hiya,

thumb

I saw your request for a digitized version of the RFC Joyce Green map. I'm not sure what the copyright restrictions are on that map you uploaded, but if it's helpful, I've colored it and converted it into a vector format. This is my first time trying to make graphics for the commons, so please let me know if this is of any help at all. --Sinclairsolutions (talk) 22:53, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

  • @Sinclairsolutions, Sinclairsolutions:Thanks for the great map. Yes we have to replace the original map file. I have done a lot of research recently and discovered a number of inaccuracies in it; which works in our favour. Please e-mail me and I will send you the results of my research. Best regards --BeckenhamBear (talk) 10:33, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Sun Pier, Chatham[edit]

Hi there,

In cases like this, where it's an obvious mistake that you (the original creator) want deleted, it's usually okay to tag it as {{Speedy}} without having to put it through a deletion request.

Just make this clear in the reason; something like "Original author/uploader requests deletion; created in error."

Hope this helps,

Category for paintings of naval battles[edit]

Hi Broichmore. You have just changed the category of "Paintings of naval battles by Nicholas Pocock" from "Marine paintings by Nicholas Pocock" to just "Nicholas Pocock". Not a big deal, really, but still - what was your reason? I hope you agree on the definition of "Marine paintings" as paintings that portray the sea. Marine paintings are one of the 11 genres of paintings on Commons, so care should be taken to include all subcategories herein. And I believe that paintings of naval battles is a proper subcategory. So the move you have made distorts this system. Maybe you were not aware of this, or maybe you disagree, but please state your reasons. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 05:25, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this concept to my attention. Is there a policy (guidelines) somewhere? I decided to have a crack at organizing NP yesterday there was a significant number of images outside of his existing cats, so I added them in. The great majority of his work is Naval Battle (120), then straight forward peacetime? maritime (77), and 49 (portraits, notes, maps, partial landscapes, misc.). I re-allocated battles to NP because that is his main body of work. Frankly for Pocock I would have had only 1 cat, despite him being profligate, he is largely almost exclusively Maritime. I have had a look at [Category:Marine_paintings]. Unwittingly I seem to have followed the spirit of this hierarchical structure. Marine paintings by artist is at the same level as Paintings of naval battles or not? This is a minefield; Drawings (he did some) are at the same level as Paintings, yet he has no cat for that. More importantly I don't see cats for Watercolours or Works after (the artist) to cover engravings, Lithographs, aquatints etc. done by others. Both of which are important during his period. Interested in your thoughts? The more I think about it below the artist level the cats should all be at the same level, unless they have to be split by decade or year. Broichmore (talk) 14:58, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
Well, you're not the only one looking for guidelines here - I've been there too. I have written a short introduction in the discussion for Category:Marine art. Marine art is the root, then you have marine paintings, marine drawings, marine prints etc. side by side. Below them you have - relevant for this artist - paintings of naval battles, drawings of naval battles and prints of naval battles. And for Pocock you need to use the categories with the addition "by Nicholas Pocock". It will quickly become a lot of categories, and the point is that you only create them if there is enough relevant material for them. So, some of the NP categories have not been made yet - feel free to do so. Watercolours count as paintings. Prints made after NP's paintings and drawings can be credited to him. I did not check, but if there are paintings made in his style, but not by him, they should have a category as "Works after Nicholas Pocock". Marine art is a very popular subject, and people upload works in the strangest places. It would be nice to have some help arranging it all - if you should feel the urge. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 17:37, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Category: Black Star Line[edit]

Hi @Broichmore: why did you removed the category Category:Black Star Line from images of the Yarmouth? Looking forward to your repsonse. MassiveEartha (talk) 18:32, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Black Star Line (BSL) as a cat was removed from those images because they all pertain to Yarmouth (ship, 1887). The Yarmouth (ship, 1887) is now a sub cat of the BSL. This is in preparation to my issuing an article about the ship: Yarmouth (ship, 1887) which was the flagship of the BSL. Do you want to read it? Broichmore (talk) 19:33, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

your mysterious messages on my talk page[edit]

Please would you explain what you are talking about. Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 12:26, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

@Broichmore:Just tell me what you are on about that relates to me. Eddaido (talk) 12:37, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Categories for discussion/2018/10/Category:Ships by name (flat list)[edit]

Simple question: Can you put some white lines in the text? It reads more comfortable. --Stunteltje (talk) 20:25, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

I'll have a go, thanks. Broichmore (talk) 20:27, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
It works, thanks. --Stunteltje (talk) 20:43, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

Personal attacks[edit]

I have maintained politeness throughout our discussion despite your personal attacks. I have asked you repeatedly to stop your personal attacks. If you persist, I have no choice but to seek appropriate action. - Themightyquill (talk) 10:41, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

I strongly suggest you re-read all that's been said on the matter, in an ambivalent way and reconsider. I for my part have been perfectly polite, if I've been blunt it's because you forced the issue. Your the one making it personal. Nobody has backed you on this change to the category. -Broichmore (talk) 11:04, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Waiting for PD to arrive[edit]

You propose: upload an image which is not yet publick domain; let it be deleted; come back when the PD deadline has passed and request undeletion. I feel this approach is fragile and might even be deemed a mis-use of Commons. I have just done a check on the English Wikipedia: for all images deleted before a certain date, the file itself has been fully deleted, ie. beyond the scope of any admin. restoration. The image description and any edits to it are still there - they take up a lot less space than files. The cut-off point when I looked just now is about 2006-06-16 03:40. I don't have admin rights on Commons so I cannot say if similar is happening here. — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 21:11, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Johan Erik Christian Petersen[edit]

Hi Broichmore. Thanks for your fine uploads of works by this rather elusive marine painter. As you can see, I have done a slight rearrangement of the category you made for him, because he was already there (under his real name). We can not always trust galleries to get it right, and for a Dane it is easier to get to the proper Danish sources. Hope this does not upset you, and again thanks for your fine work on all things naval. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 05:25, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. I did look for variations in spelling, but missed this one, thanks for sorting it out. I have uploaded some more images. As your aware the Gallery stateside names him John, I think the majority of the pictures I've uploaded (if not all) were probably painted in the USA. Regards Broichmore (talk) 11:51, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Now the American way of spelling his name has been added to Wikidata. Hopefully that means he will now be found in searches like yours. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 04:02, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Broichmore!

You are receiving this message because you have previously contributed to the annual Wiki Loves Monuments contest in India. We would be very delighted if you would do so again this year, help record our monuments for future generations and win exciting prizes.

You can find more details in this page. Or, if you have images taken in other countries, you can check the international options. This year's contest runs until 30 September 2019.

If you wish it to be only in Category:Portsmouth, Virginia, that's fine. I have no opinion on the question, so I won't offer any comments on why it's wise or why it's not wise. The only problem is having it in both categories simultaneously. Nyttend (talk) 23:40, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

You added the category "George Weedon" to the image File:George Weedon Centennial Grave Marker.jpg, however, the grave marker says George Weedon died in 1842. The category about George Weedon references 1793 deaths. This is not the same person. Regards Nv8200p (talk) 10:38, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments UK 2019![edit]

Hi

Thank you so much for contributing to the UK section of this year's Wiki Loves Monuments contest, which finished yesterday. We really do appreciate the time and effort you've put in to record the UK's built cultural heritage for future generations.

Your contribution has been been added to our collections here on Wikimedia Commons, and is already available for editors to make use of on Wikipedia and elsewhere. It has also been entered into this year's contest. If you'd like to see your own images, just click on the uploads link at the top right of this page (if you don't see it, click on the Log in option first).

We've received over 10,000 UK entries this year, and it will take a few weeks for our volunteers and professional judges to decide on the final top 10. The winners will be announced by the end of this month, both here on Wikimedia Commons and also on the competition website.

The top 10 UK images will go forward to the international section where they will compete against winners from some 50 other countries. The international winners should be announced here in December.

Don't forget, by the way, that if you're hoping to win a prize in the contest it's essential that you have enabled email in your Wikimedia preferences. If you haven't, you're not eligible to win. If you're unsure, please check here.

Once again, many thanks for your help! MichaelMaggs (talk) 15:58, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you. Thank you. -- ~riley (talk) 03:29, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

A very broad category is to be avoided (examine its subcategories using specialist tools available if possible please)[edit]

File:Sailing barges and a steamer, with a power station in the distance RMG PV1680.jpg" should have been put into River Thames in art, even if not drilling down beneath that into any applicable sub-category. I am not particularly fussy myself about this sort of thing. But other editors rightly make categorisation a fine art, it is better to look first then jump in, i.e. try using the + - tools before you just click on a big category; otherwise you are creating work for fellow people just like me you and everyone else, when we would rather be delving into subcategories and other stuff. Thanks.Adam37 (talk) 17:56, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

@Adam37:It was left in the broad category because categorisation is incomplete, the power station has not been identified. Also I'm not a fan of over diffusion of a subject by creating too many sub categories, though the Thames (I do agree) is a good candidate. Broichmore (talk) 04:02, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Evening, just to let you know this: file is back as it was. Apologies for the inconvenience. Eastfarthingan (talk) 22:40, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Please discuss before you delete active categories[edit]

Hi Broichmore. So sad to see our latest edits concerning Category:Oil marine paintings by Carl Locher, Category:Marine paintings by Carl Locher, Category:Paintings of ships by Jens Thielsen Locher and others. You may have your ideas about "diffusion of categories", but it would be more polite and following the spirit of Wikipedia to discuss such sweeping changes with other members of the community. What you have done now is casting aside your colleagues' work through months and years, making your edits seem more like vandalism. Please revert them and let us have the discussion. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 05:03, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Broichmore. Can see that you are continuing on this disputed road of action concerning categories. Look, there is a reason why we have a system of "Categories for discussion". It is meant exactly for a situation like this, where somebody wants to remove or radically change categories. You should use it - and please revert your edits in this field, and please do not make any more of this kind - you are bordering on vandalism. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 10:34, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
@Rsteen, Rsteen: It take time to respond to this!!!
Forgive my rudeness. However here you have a painter who paints marine subjects in oil. I don't think there are more than 60 paintings represented here. With one exception they are all marine pictures. There's debatably another sub category covering ships, actually I'm being generous to him in even ascribing that to him, he has no interest in identifying, or detailing the ships he paints; they are purely incidental. Only one was painstakingly accurate (painted against a debt), and he even refused to sign it. Only six ships in pictures are possible to identify by name, the rest are effectively seascapes.

I realize he's Danish and therefore one of your pets. I realize it's a big ask to implore you to be objective here as you have invested heavily in his work. He's linked into a wider variety of main cat headings than any other marine painter here, possibly even more than Turner.

In all he had 9 categories
Carl Locher
Portraits of Carl Locher
Paintings by Carl Locher
Paintings of seascapes by Carl Locher
Marine paintings by Carl Locher
Oil marine paintings by Carl Locher
Paintings of ships by Carl Locher
Oil paintings of ships by Carl Locher
Google Art Project works by Carl Locher

How can this many be justified? Sketches: none. Etchings : none. Watercolours: none. Same ship / same picture: only one and its unidentifiable. Landscapes: one. Night scene: maybe two or three.

They are all oil paintings

I left it as 4 sub cats.
1. Portraits of Carl Locher, this shouldn't even exist, the paintings should be in Carl Locher.
2. Paintings by Carl Locher, there are only 44 images here. They are all marine except three; one a landscape (so it should be in Carl Locher), a fire, and another a night scene but it does have water in it. As for the rest they are all debatably seascapes, almost all in the daytime (apart from three nightscapes, and a further three in the evening).
3. Only six ship's pictures are possible to identify by name, the rest are effectively seascapes. He's really an impressionistic marine painter, and an extraordinary one at that.
4. "Google Art Project works by Carl Locher" hold three files. This should really be a hidden category, it's useless really, except to a curator, for attribution? They don't even own the pictures. Flickr is a hidden cat and so should be Google.

Go back to Turner we have 1200 or so images. Locher has 66 images and a ratio of three times more cats devoted to him than Turner. Broichmore (talk) 10:44, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Broichmore. You do not seem to understand that we should have this discussion before you decided to make all your far reaching changes. No, I do not agree with your points - otherwise I would not have participated in setting up the categories as they were - but that is not the issue here. We have rules for behaviour on Wikipedia and Commons and we should respect the work of our colleagues. You show lack of respect for the rest of the community and therefore I ask you again to revert your edits. --Rsteen (talk) 12:05, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

@Rsteen, Rsteen: Forgive me I had not noticed you (or anyone else) were the architect of a scheme here, and had I noticed I would have done (touched base with you). You do know that I hold you in great esteem, I've proven that in the past. Please advise what you think the scheme should be rather than the above, a marine painting is a seascape. A seascape is a marine painting. A ship on water from a distance is a seascape. I don't think there are more than six pictures here that have any historical date or special significance to assign to them; irregardless of how fine a painter he is that's not in dispute. This is just sea, sea, and sea apart from one or two pictures and a handful of portraits of the man. These pictures are a simple story to the eye.  Broichmore (talk) 12:23, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Yes Broichmore, we have collaborated fine in the past, but this is not about who set up the present structure, it is about respect for your colleagues - no matter who they are. We usually have a point in making our edits, and most editors are willing to discuss that. So the correct starting point would be for you to revert your edits and put down your proposals in Categories for discussion - and we will take it from there.

@Rsteen, Rsteen: Respect, yes, I have apologized twice already, and I have given you a very detailed rationale for the scheme I have used here. To be honest I didn't need to say sorry; it was unrecognisablethat there was a scheme in the first place. There were duplicated cats IMO, some nested from sight, as well as cats leading into each other and back again. None of them were deleted, merely redirected. The scheme is now better than it was, and to change it would be vandalism as opposed to bordering on it. What value is there in moving paintings (all of which are in oil) from Paintings of ships by Carl Locher to Oil paintings of ships by Carl Locher. Please, I implore you, tell me that. Do you seriously want to debate this in an open forum, where every nutcase and troll can have their two cents. You do brilliant work, but in this instance you've not served Locher well. Best regards.

So, no reverting. For my part. This discussion ends here. --Rsteen (talk) 16:16, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Rijksmuseum Amsterdam[edit]

Good day! I have noticed that you are working with uncategorized files but as a result of corrections you are relocating these files to the main category. Please consider the new destination in more specific categories (like books, drawings, prints, etc.) of Rijksmuseum collections. I think it would be much more better keep the main category clean. --Vasyatka1 (talk) 17:24, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

"Sea Witch" clipper ship sailing card you posted in 2019[edit]

SEA WITCH Clipper ship sailing card

Neglected to mention...My best email address is: windships@earthlink.net Because I don't visit WikiMedia Commons often, perhaps you would be so kind as to reply to me via email, unless you prefer not to. Thanks once again.

Hello,

I am a "vessel historian" and builder of scale ship models. 'Assisting a friend and colleague with research about the clipper ship of this name, built at East Boston, Mass in 1872. She is a different "Sea Witch" than the vessel of the same name, built earlier (1853).

We thank you for posting this image of a clipper ship sailing card for the "Sea Witch" of our interest.

We are wondering if you can tell us the provenance or source of the image. For example, do you own an original card? Did you pick up the image from somewhere else on the Web? Or, perhaps a friend or institution provided the opportunity to scan the image?

You note on your post that no higher resolution is available, which suggest you found it as a secondary source. It would be ideal to get a higher resolution image somehow, because it is almost impossible to read the smaller text on the card, even upon further magnification, as with, say Picasa.

[Although I contribute to support Wikipedia, this is my very first posting to Wikimedia, so thank you for bearing with me.]

Thank you for whatever information or guidance you might provide. And, thank you again for your exceptional generosity is making your collection of images available.WINDSHIPS (talk) 20:39, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

WINDSHIPS

@WINDSHIPS: Sorry I can't help much. The file was from a secondary source, to the best of my knowledge a throwaway auction site, namely picclick. I have further deciphered the card, but can't confirm a year for it; see File:SEA WITCH Clipper ship sailing card.jpg. I think the card is probably from the 1880's and the Captain John Henry Drew. Seems almost certain that it is the ‘SEA WITCH’ Built 1872. Wood ship of 1288 Tons. Length; 197 ft. Breadth; 37 ft. Depth; 24 ft. Built at East Boston for E. Lawrence. Think the printer is Rogers & Sherwood, New York. Hopefully your research will confirm, if interested. Meanwhile I have uploaded a photo of the ship in question. Let me know what comes up, please. Broichmore (talk) 12:43, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Broichmore: Not sure I'm doing this correctly. Thank you VERY MUCH for this useful reply. Knowing the printer may get us to an example of the card. I did go to picclick earlier, and will try there again. This is the SEA WITCH we are researching. I'll look for the photo you posted. So far, we have only found one verifiable photo, so hopefully "yours" will be new to us. User:WINDSHIPS
@WINDSHIPS: piclick does not archive image files and google etc do not scrape and archive their images. Currently [this photo is doing the rounds], its apparently dated 1967, which if true means its subject to copywrite, and its provenance is unclear, you would certainly need to know that for permission to use it. That's on the basis, of course, it's the ship you want; you would need a confirm on that too. PS: You sign your posts with four ~'s. I suggest you try the Maine maritime museums. Regards.

Why Karaman[edit]

Regarding the Karaman category, to which I myself will contribute several pictures taken in that town, I was utterly nonplussed finding your curious picture.
The tragedy of the seas; or, Sorrow on the ocean, lake, and river, from shipwreck, plague, fire and famine (1848) (14763280232)
It's a nice picture with a good story, butː Karaman is landlocked, I found no reference to the plaque, yet you added it to this category. What made you do so? If it is a mistake, I suggest you correct it. If it makes sense, what sense? If the latter, I'd suggest you add the story somewhere, so people can understand. Maybe you'll rewrite Karaman history, but I doubt that. Kindest regards, Dosseman (talk) 13:31, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dosseman: I confused it, with Karamania. Thanks. Broichmore (talk) 16:41, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
