Hello ... Pls Delete all Old & New version of this file

Thanks :)

« Wemmick's Castle »[edit]

Thanks for the information. You're absolutely right. The best thing is to remove the file from Commons. It's not all that important, since it's not a genuine illustration. Personally, I'm deleting from the article Les Grandes Espérances. Best wishes, Robert Ferrieux

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Hopefully you took my comment in the spirit it was meant, as a 'teasing' joke. What you said was quite apt, just a bit of a 'wall of text'... I try to keep things friendly.. the OP's comment was rather not, so a bit of a digression seemed in order. Revent (talk)

Oh, no offense taken ;-) That's hardly my worst example of a stream-of-consciousness wall of text reply on here either... I have some pretty long ones sometimes ;-)


this got archived within hours. :-( Missed it?

Oshima Shipbuilding[edit]

Hello Clindberg, I need your help. From my point of view is Oshima Shipbuilding only one shipyard, located in Saikai. Unfortunately, we have two categories for the ships built by this shipyard: Ships built at Oshima Shipbuilding, Saikai and Ships built at Oshima SB, Oshima. Please let me know, if you agree to merge both categories to one. Greetings --Ein Dahmer (talk) 18:41, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

@Ein Dahmer: Ah, I'd never looked into that. I think you're right. Ship-db has just one shipyard, Oshima Zosensho (Nagasaki-Oshima), and that list has ships from both of the categories here. It looks like Oshima was one of the five towns which combined (in 2005) to form the current city of Saikai, Nagasaki. I would probably keep the "Ships built at Oshima Shipbuilding, Saikai" name. I guess references would either use the older name of Oshima, or the newer city name of Saikai, and so I guess we ended up with two cats for the same yard. Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:52, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
Hello Carl, thanks for the quick response. Ship-db is a good source, but sometimes late with actualization. If we look to a register (for example DNV GL) is there also only one shipyard listed. My intention is to move all ships from Ships built at Oshima SB, Oshima to Ships built at Oshima Shipbuilding, Saikai and to redirect the first to the second. --Ein Dahmer (talk) 19:15, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@Ein Dahmer: Sounds good. Ship-db at least lets you search on the name of a shipyard, to see if they have separate lists under similar names. I haven't found many sources like that which list shipyards, then let you see the list under each yard, so it's hard to learn (and sometimes histories of name changes are also hard to come by). DNVGL may be an exception, but not sure that the exact text of the shipyard names in the registers is always consistent. Feels like I've seen cases where a company added a second shipyard, but the text for the original did not change, things like that. Or some use historical names as of when the ship was created, some use current names, things like that. But I'm not really sure, and don't have a great feel for things in this area, so I haven't done a lot of work on creating yard categories. Many of the yards in China seem particularly hard to get a grasp on -- lots of similar names. But this case seems obvious, once you look into it a little, which I had never done.

Done. Greetings across the ocean --Ein Dahmer (talk) 20:26, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

FOP in Vietnam[edit]

Hi! I made a nice little category on Vietnamese Wikipedia of derivative works: vi:Thể loại:Derivative works. There is Freedom of panorama in Vietnam. I wonder if it only covers buildings, statues, signs etc located in a public place or if it also covers product packaging and everything else you can place in a public place. Do you have an idea? --MGA73 (talk) 12:58, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

It doesn't have the "permanent" condition, which seems to mean almost anything is fair game, but it also doesn't define "public place". So that may well not include stores, museums, and things like that. Not much idea beyond the (translated) text of the law. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:21, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
Thank. In that case I guess I will not start mass deletions on --MGA73 (talk) 15:24, 23 July 2020 (UTC)


Hi! You responded to a post I made about US state copyright law in an informative, cogent, and friendly manner a couple days ago. Since then, I've been peeking at the copyright Village pump archives for a bit, and I just wanted to express my appreciation for the quality and length of your involvement with this project. You rock! Jlevi (talk) 19:44, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
