Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Overcat?[edit]

[1], [2]: Category:Mount Rainier National Park seems to me to be redundant to Category:National Register of Historic Places in Mount Rainier National Park. What is your intent here? - Jmabel ! talk 20:25, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Trying to provide easier access to the images based on how the user may or will approach the subject. 1st, Mount Rainer - the Mountain. 2nd, Mount Rainier National Park - the administrative managers and information source, i.e., tourist destination. 3rd, visitor districts, i.e., Paradise. 4th, subsection of the district, i.e., Historic Districts, views, meadows, etc. And 5th, if there is more than one structure in the Historic District, a category for the building.
  • Normally, subcategories report only to the category above, unless there is a related outside category, i.e., flora or fauna species, architectural style. With Mt Rainier, I was overwhelmed by the volume of images and the difficulty in finding what I wanted or finding where to add an image I was posting.
  • I agree, over-categorized. In the process of organizing, it may become convoluted, posting the desired category, before the discontinued category has been removed from a category or image. I figure, 2-5 weeks to work out this one subject area. --Chris Light (talk) 20:37, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

OK, I'll leave it alone for now, but when you are done, please, these should not be in both a category and its immediate parent category.

Also, if your intent is a temporary category for your own work, you might consider implementing one or more User categories for your own purposes, which won't mess things up for anyone else. - Jmabel ! talk 22:15, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I haven't been following your work closely, but this is wrong on two counts (and, by the way, you gave no edit summary when you did it); I only became aware of it when I saw that Category:Bridges in Mount Rainier National Park had been deleted as an empty category.
    1. You have eliminated a more specific category in favor of a less specific one.
    2. If your new category should exist at all—which I don't think it should, because we normally have descendants of Category:Roads and Category:Bridges, not of some nonexistent Category:Roads and bridges—should not be capitalized that way. There is no reason for "bridges" to be capitalized in the middle of a category name.
  • If you are willing to revert this and analogous changes and restore Category:Bridges in Mount Rainier National Park, fine. (Ask me if you need help to restore the category, I'm an admin so I can undelete it.) If you think I'm wrong about this, let's seek third-party comment on the Village pump, because I don't want an edit war. If you think I'm right but won't fix it yourself, I will reluctantly take on fixing it myself, let me know. - Jmabel ! talk 17:08, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
    • It has been a week with no response. While I would rather have worked this out with you, I will take the liberty to fix it myself to what I believe is correct. - Jmabel ! talk 03:59, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
  • I've been out of the country for 2 weeks. Just got back yesterday. I agree reversion of Roads & Bridges to Bridges makes better sense.--Chris Light (talk) 14:03, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Category:Town Hall (Chardon, Ohio)[edit]

Hello, can you explain to me why this category is called the Town Hall? It looks like it is the en:Geauga County Courthouse, and as far as I can tell, the city hall is located around the corner. kennethaw88talk 04:29, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Correct, this is the courthouse. Brain slip when uploading the file. --Chris Light (talk) 18:19, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I'll go ahead and move the category and request the files to be renamed, so that they are all consistent and easier to search for. kennethaw88talk 22:58, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Please take a look...[edit]

... at what you wrote here. It's ungrammatical. I think I know what you meant, but I'm not certain, so you should probably correct it yourself. - Jmabel ! talk 02:11, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Too much text[edit]

You seem to be turning Category:George Washington (Washington pioneer) into an article. Category text like this is really meant only to provide an indication of what the category is about, maybe a one-sentence summary on a person. Articles about people belong in Wikipedia, not Commons, and should be cited. - Jmabel ! talk 23:17, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Files with incorrect description and dates[edit]

Could you take a look at File:Union Station-Train pulling out.jpg and File:Union Station-Train waiting to pull out.jpg? You labeled these as being at Union Station in DC (which they don't appear to be) and as taken in June 2016 (clearly impossible). I'd like to be able to correct the location and date if possible. Thanks, Pi.1415926535 (talk) 03:46, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States - Thank You![edit]

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States - Logo (text under).svg

Hi there! Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States. We're excited to see people uploading thousands of photos from all over the country! You and others have collectively uploaded 4,929 photos so far, all of which are viewable at Category:Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States (sorted by state).

We encourage you to continue contributing through the rest of the month. Uploading your photos of monuments isn't the only way to contribute, however. If you're interested, we have compiled a list of auxiliary ways to contribute - which include improving Wikipedia's coverage of historic and cultural sites, as well as finding existing free photos that can be shared on the Commons. While these contributions don't count towards the contest, we are still keeping track of them and they are great ways to contribute to the spirit of the project.

If you are interesting in contributing to Wikipedia, WikiProject National Register of Historic Places is also great place to start. The WikiProject showcases the work that has been done so far in covering NRHP sites, and can also help you find articles that need improving.

If you're on Twitter, give us a follow Twitter Logo Mini.svg @WLMUnitedStates for updates, news, and more.

If you have any questions between now or the end of the month, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Thank you! ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 09:28, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States - Logo (text under).svg

Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States during the month of October! The United States contest saw over 1,700 people contribute over 11,000 great photos of cultural and historic sites from all over the United States and its territories. In addition to National Register of Historic Places sites, we welcomed uploads of sites designated by state- and local-level historical institutions and societies. Hundreds of these photos are already being used to illustrate Wikipedia articles!

We're excited to announce that our national judging process has concluded, and that we have selected the winners of Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 in the United States! We were amazed by all of the uploads, and regret having to narrow it down to just 10. That being said – congratulations to our national winners and their amazing shots! Our 10 winners will be sent to the international Wiki Loves Monuments jury, who will then select the winners of the international contest. If you're interested in seeing the winners of the other various national contests as they are announced, you may do so at Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 winners.

Finally, we have also created a feedback form for all participants in the United States to fill out. The survey is optional and anonymous, and only takes a minute or two – we hope to use the feedback to organize better events in the future!

Once again, thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2016, and we hope to see you again for future Commons photography events! ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 06:29, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Photo-phylles[edit]

Hi Chris,

I'm an administrator of the french Wikibooks, and occupated with lots of other things.

In this period I'm organizing the Photographic Art international Salon Photo-phylles in the Botanical Garden of Bordeaux, France. As I noticed your own works, I had the idea of inviting you to participate. It's completely free of charges, and if some of your pictures are selected for the exhibition, they will be sawn by several thousands of persons, among them 2,500 - 3,000 young people who come to visit with their teachers.

Please feel free to visit my website http://www.jjmilan.sitew.fr/#accueil.A , you will find there the rules and entry form and many other data.

If you need anything else, please ask to photophylles2017@gmail.com

Hi there! My name is Kevin, one of the organizers of Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States. Last year, you contributed to our 2016 event. It was a great success thanks to you and many others, with over 1,700 people contributing over 11,000 great photos of cultural and historic sites from all over the United States. Over 1,000 of these photos now help illustrate Wikipedia articles, making our open knowledge about United States history and heritage all the better.

I'm pleased to say that we're back this year with Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 in the United States, and I'd like to welcome you to participate once again in the event. Check out our updated event page for more information, including updated tips, lists, and prizes. Like last year, you'll be able to upload your new photos of any registered historical site in the United States through the end of September (even if the photos were taken before this month).

Once again, thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2016, and we hope to see you in this year's event! If you'd like to respond to this message directly, please do so on my talk page. ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 08:05, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Misidentified Washington State ferries[edit]

Hello, I noticed that when you uploaded pictures of Washington state ferries, you misidentified many of them (i.e. labeled them with the wrong ferry name in the description and category). I corrected many of them, but there may be some that I missed.

However, there is one that I know is wrong, but I cannot identify what the correct ferry name is. It's this one: File:In Seattle 2016-09 1329.jpg. I know that it is not the w:MV Kitsap as you labeled it, but rather it looks like a w:Jumbo Mark II-class ferry. Problem is that the photo is not clear enough for me to actually read the ferry's nameplate so that I can identify which one it is. Would you be able to tell perhaps? Thanks, Compdude123 07:08, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Based on the other images I took that trip, the Tacoma was in drydock, the Puyallup was not seen in any of the pictures, thus it must be the Wenatchee, which I have two images of it at the Colman dock, while boarding the Hyak for Bremerton. I've changed the categories appropriately. Thanks for the review and corrections.--Chris Light (talk) 16:05, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! —Compdude123 03:06, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

Buildings in Cleveland, Ohio, category[edit]

Is something going to happen with that category? I see you're stripping it from a number of images. Is there a replacement category coming? - Tim1965 (talk) 14:14, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

  • No images should be lost from this group. I'm segmenting individual buildings from the general category of Buildings in Cleveland and creating their own category. That category, is then linked as a unit of photos back to Buildings in Cleveland, Ohio and the appropriate categories for that building.
  • Example;
    • HAER OHIO,18-CLEV, 25a takes all the HAER images for Winton Motor Carriage Company and places them into a single category. This category is then available in Buildings in Cleveland, Ohio, but as a group under sub-categories. The only issue I'm concerned about is that maybe the category name HAER OHIO,18-CLEV, 25a should include 'Winton Motor Carriage Company' in the title, or it should be in a group called Winton Motor Carriage Company, Cleveland. Creating a Cleveland titled sub-group would allow other images for Winton Motor Carriage Company in Cleveland to be grouped, but then the stacking becomes too deep, i.e.,
      • Buildings in Cleveland, Ohio
        • Winton Motor Carriage Company, Cleveland
          • HAER OHIO,18-CLEV, 25a
      • Currently I've set it up as:
        • Buildings in Cleveland, Ohio
          • HAER OHIO,18-CLEV, 25a, See why I'm considering adding the building-company name to the category. Users don't necessarily know what this is.
  • The intent is not to eliminate any pictures, but to group related pictures of a single buildings into a single category. Thus If you're interested in the company w:White Motor Corporation you'll find all the building image for Cleveland in one category, included in the Corporation group, as well as the category of White Motor Company vehicles. Possible, even images of stock certificates and other documents.
  • I find it confusing to look through 200 images of 'Buildings in Cleveland, Ohio', when I want pictures of the Terminal Tower or of the Illuminating Building. To me, it's easier to look at a group of 5-20 images of a single building to find the one I want, rather and look through 200+ for the 5 or 10 images that are of interest. I briefly considered renaming images by the building name. That's a lot of work and requires the system to be used and denies the contributor their own naming process.
  • Suggestions: I'll listen. Thanks.--Chris Light (talk) 21:53, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
You're doing yeoman's work: Good job!!! I normally don't create a category unless there are three or more images. But that's just my own rule of thumb. Is there a guideline somewhere? I admit, I'm awful when categorizing images on Commons. - Tim1965 (talk) 01:19, 29 December 2017 (UTC)
      • Agreed, about 3 images or more, just that I was seeing a similar HAER number and thought it was dozens. Turns out to be only 3-6 for each specific structure. But, I started it, so I'll continue with the HAER files, atleast.--Chris Light (talk) 18:50, 29 December 2017 (UTC)

Poorly named category[edit]

Category:Jellyfish Seattle Aquarium. (1) There is no such thing as the "Jellyfish Seattle Aquarium", and if you mean something like "Jellyfish at the Seattle Aquarium" it should use actual genus or species name: e.g. "Aurelia at the Seattle Aquarium", if your intent is specifically Aurelia, but I can't even be sure from a colloquial name like that. Also, certainly there should be a parent category related to the genus or species.

What is your actual intent here, so I can help sort it out? - Jmabel ! talk 23:01, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

  • The Category:Seattle Aquarium has over 200 images and locating anything specific is difficult. So, my category was a 1st attempt as how to sub-categorize the entry. I like your suggestion for "Aurelia at the Seattle Aquarium" as it can them like to Category:Aurelia aurita as a location for people to go to to see this species. Also, the Category:Seattle is poorly organized, but I don't have time to deal with that, only with the area where I've got images to contribute.--Chris Light (talk) 14:28, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
    • I'm fine with creating the category, just didn't like the name. Sounds like "Aurelia at the Seattle Aquarium" is fine with you, so that's what I'll do. - Jmabel ! talk 23:39, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
    • Thanks. When I get back to adding images for the aquarium, I'll create sub-categories in the same way.--Chris Light (talk) 18:21, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for...[edit]

Boy Scouts yearly categories[edit]

Hi. I noticed on my watchlist you splitting up Boy Scouts of America photos into yearly categories. I would suggest naming them something like "Boy Scouts of America in 2018" rather than just "Scouting ...". There Scouts in lots of other countries (and Girl Scouts in the US) all of whom consider themselves "Scouting". --B (talk) 20:46, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Good Idea. I'm trying to reduce the uncategorized Boy Scouts of America from nearly 500 images to specific sub-categories. I've begun to see the Scouts from other areas in cross referencing.

Thanks.--Chris Light (talk) 14:34, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

Category:Alaskan Way Viaduct - 2016[edit]

Why does this particular conjunction of place and year get a separate category? - Jmabel ! talk 23:02, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Good Question. I created this category, because, the Viaduct is coming down beginning in 2017 or 2018. Thus, this may be the last year that it stands. May be a poor reason, and I wouldn't have a problem with it being consolidated.--Chris Light (talk) 16:59, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
    • I'm going to take this back apart. We have photos of the viaduct from almost every year in the last 20, and except for the removal of the southern part of the viaduct below Pioneer Square, it hasn't changed much visually. - Jmabel ! talk 18:27, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Category:Issaquah Theatre[edit]

What is your basis for calling this the "Issaquah Theatre"? It's been the "Village Theatre" for at least the several decades that I've known it. Is that a prior name, and if so why prefer it to the current name? - Jmabel ! talk 23:29, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Not knowing local naming history, I used the Nat'l Register of Historic Places standard of using the first name of the place. That would be what? 'Glenn Theatre" or an unidentified name, unavailable to me.
  • The use of 'Village Theatre', even if several decades old, 1950's(?) would leave out the earlier 20-4 years of a previous name. It would be acceptable, with prior information needed. But, I've seen signs at the Gaudette Theatre and Google Maps identified the Gaudette Theatre as the "Village Theatre". I'd defer to your suggestions, except for the Google Map identify, right or wrong. It would add confusion.
  • The Historic Downtown, Issaquah, Walking Tour by the Issaquah History Museum, lists it as "First State/Issaquah Theatre (1913), Copyright 2000, revised 2006. Assuming that they are an acceptable source, I took the Issaquah Theatre name from them, seeing that First Stage appears to be a modern appelation, not from historic use. Without information on an older given name, I chose to use Issaquah Theatre for lack of a more historically appropriate name.
    • Note, I'm not going to suggest to Google that they change the Gaudette Theatre name from Village Theatre to Gaudette, nor add Village Theater or Issquah Theatre or First Stage to Google Maps.
  • I'm happy to follow local custom, which isn't clear at this time. A specific reference to an older earlier name would be acceptable. To a clarification through Google maps would be accpetable. Otherwise for lack of information, I'll let this stand.--Chris Light (talk) 00:04, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Category:Sister City (Issaquah, WA)[edit]

This category is just wrong. What is it supposed to represent? If it is specific to the door, then it is poorly named. If it is not, then it has the wrong parents. Also, Chefchaouen is not Issaquah's only sister city. Unless you have a concrete suggestion (to which I'm certainly open), I think things would be improved by just deleting this category and reverting the two photos in it to their previous categorization. - Jmabel ! talk 23:36, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

As I understand that, if you upload without that header, Special:Upload adds it automatically, so it would seem to be generally desired. Do you have a reason to remove it here? - Jmabel ! talk 03:58, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Copyright on Notre Dame cross-section[edit]

Sorry, but I"m confused by the copyright info on File:Notre Dame 531.jpg. Can you tell me what edition this image is from? If 1946, the edition number and copyright notice seems wrong; otherwise, the source metadata seems wrong. Thank you for uploading it, it's a really useful image and I've made some derivatives.

Green River Trail[edit]

What is the advantage of breaking down Category:Green River Trail into separate categories for each municipality it passes through? - Jmabel ! talk 00:05, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

  • I didn't know if it would be advantageous to users to be able to find the segment of the trail that they would be hiking. Maybe at 19.6 miles (31.5 km) the trail is fairly uniform and it doesn't need to be split by jurisdiction.
    • I usually like to keep category content limited to a specific type/item and limit the volume that gets placed in a general area. Here, the 25 Green River Trail images under Category:Kent, Washington, cluttered up the Kent category, and could be gathered together into a trail group, allowing the general listing for a variety of image related only by their location in Kent.
    • The choice was then to create a category within Kent, Washington for the trail and thus sub-dividing the Category:Green River Trail. The new category is over-kill for the Green River Trail category. Alternatively, putting the Green River Trail as a sub-category under Kent, Washington, bringing trail images from the other jurisdictions along. Since there were 25 images, I choose to create the trail specific category, rather than putting Green River Trail, under Kent, Washington. Here, the 25 Green River Trail images under Category:Kent, Washington, cluttered up the Kent category, and could be gathered together into a trail group, allowing the general listing for a variety of image related only by their location in Kent. --Chris Light (talk) 20:08, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Category:Issaquah Valley Trolley[edit]

It seems to me that in terms of parent categories Category:Issaquah Valley Trolley mixes the one surviving trolley car (and where it is on display) with the defunct trolley line. At the moment, all the images we have are of that one surviving trolley car, out of use and on display, but this categorization won't work if we were to get older images of the trolley line back when it was functioning. - Jmabel ! talk 22:25, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Chickamauga[edit]

Hi Chris, I visited Chickamauga Battlefield earlier this year and took quite a few pictures of the monuments there which I have begun to upload. I created the category Monuments of Chickamauga Battlefield as a subcategory of the category Chickamauga Battlefield. Shortly after that I realized you had already created a broader category on memorials and monuments of both Chickamauga and Chattanooga NMP. Having already made the category strictly about Chickamauga, I added it as a subcategory to the category you already created as well. Hope you are OK with this. If so, I wanted to suggest that you create a second subcategory on just Chattanooga monuments to separate the pictures for those who are not familiar with both sites. I would be happy to do it but unfortunately have not had the chance to visit the Chattanooga portion of the NMP, and am less certain of the memorials there. Hope this makes sense. DrStew82 (Dan).

File names[edit]

Hey, i've seen that you uploaded some media of Munichs S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations, and i've noticed that some of them seem to have incorrect names.

Maybe you can check the files and request a rename, as i just got a rename request declined. Best regards, Nyamo Kurosawa (talk) 09:46, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Quick update: File:Hauptbanhof (S) 19-05-20 1114.jpg, File:Hauptbanhof (S) 19-05-20 1115.jpg and File:HauptBanhof (U) 19-05-22 511.jpg already got renamed. File:Odeonplatz 19-05-23 556.jpg has its rename request pending. File:Arrival odenplatz 19-05-23 557.ogv had its rename request declined. Regards, Nyamo Kurosawa (talk) 15:31, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Never worked out the rename request procedure. I agree with most of your suggestions.--Chris Light (talk) 18:07, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

File:Yellow Butterfly (Papilio glaucus).jpg[edit]

Hi Chris Light, may I ask what makes you identify this butterfly as Papilio glaucus rather than as the closely related Papilio canadensis? The location is near the contact zone between these two species, but apparently slighly more in the canadensis zone. Thanks and best regards --LamBoet (talk) 19:02, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

  • Always appreciate better taxonomic information. It's not really my area.--Chris Light (talk) 18:04, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
