Categories[edit]

Hi!

I'm the one that removed some categories you were adding. Usually we do not put any file or category in both a category and a subcategory of that category. E.g. any categories describing the ship Johanna TG326 are added to Category:Johanna TG326, and individual photos need only that category, plus categories pertaining to where the photo was taken, what part of the ship is in the photo etcetera, where such additional categories are useful. In this way the main categories do not become more crowded than necessary.

There may be some situations where "redundant" categories are helpful, but I did not see any obvious reason in this case. Sometimes one wants to have one or a few good pictures on the category page, e.g. for people to see what the category is about without clicking on subcategories. In that case I think it is better to put the image directly on the category page together with a category description (as if the category was an ordinary page).

Nice to see your work here!

Hi LPfi

Thanks for the info, I try to do my best :) There were other photos than the one of Johanna TG326 in the category, they were not removed from it. I started the category beacause of Johanna, which is from my town Vágur, Erik's photo was there already and I found a photo of Norðlýsið too and added: Category:Sailing ships of the Faroe Islands - and then I uploaded a few photos of other sail ships from the Faroe Islands: "Dragin" from Klaksvík and "Norðlýsið" from Tórshavn. Now there are four subcategories and three photos in this category: Category:Sailing ships of the Faroe Islands - I don't think this category will be too crowded, the Faroe Islands is a small country with 50.000 inhabitants and there are not that many sail ships, it would be nice, if one photo of Johanna TG326 could be in the group too.

Best regards

File:Johan Dalsgaard 2012.JPG[edit]

Hi EileenSanda, who is the sculptor of that statue behind the man? When was it installed? As you may know (or not), Denmark has no freedom-of-panorama exemption for non-buildings. --Túrelio (talk) 19:13, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

I uploaded this photo because of Johan Dalsgaard not because of the statue behind him. The Faroese laws are not the same as the Danish ones, but I am not sure, there was a discussion about it here earlier. The statue was installed there sometimes in the 1970'ies, the sculpturor died some years ago. The statue could perhaps be cropped out of this photo, or what it best to do? Or just delete it, it is not that important. Best regards EileenSanda (talk) 23:47, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
The Faroer have an own copyright law? Well then please provide me a link or something where it deals with works in public space (i.e., the question of freedom of panorama). If you remember that similar cases were kept in the past, please browse through to find one. This little extra work would help in future cases. Otherwise, you could simply crop the statue away. --Túrelio (talk) 06:50, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
Well, you can hava a look at a discussion about this here. EileenSanda (talk) 09:48, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
I have uploaded a cropped version of the same photo of Johan Dalsgaard, now without the statue, so you can delete the other photo, if the copyright law does not permit it here.
After reading through, it seems that this is the currently valid law for Faroer. However, I don't understand a word of it. If you know this language, could you try to find whether it says anything about works in public space/places? It would be worth the effort even beyond the image in dispute, as currently our COM:FOP page has no information about Faroer at all. --Túrelio (talk) 10:04, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Borkur Hanagleiv[edit]

Hello! Permission should be send to OTRS. Here are the instructions: OTRS. Thanks for your help! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 07:15, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Ok, thanks, I will let the uploader know. But why have both files already been deleted? Was it not possible to wait a few minutes for User:Benadikt to send the permission? Kind regards --EileenSanda (talk) 07:25, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
OTRS has a huge backlog, 2 weeks and more. It is not feasible to wait for every single file that may or may not have proper permission, that would make it much much worse. Restoring the file(s) is no big deal and can be done in seconds. Best regards, --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 07:30, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I understand :) Thanks for your reply. --EileenSanda (talk) 07:44, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Uncategorized transfers from fo.wikipedia[edit]

There are many files transferred from fo.wikipedia [1] that have no category. Probably many are politicians, (and members of "logting"?). 91.9.118.230 09:29, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello. Yes, I have noticed. Yes, I think most of them are politician. If the source is the history of the Løgting, the person must have been a member of the Løgting. I have categorized som of them but there are many. I will do some more. --EileenSanda (talk) 11:18, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Tysen takk. Better link - all until "Harald Emil Høst.png" have been touched, probably by you. There might be a robot fixing some errors in all transfers, so the indicator "(current)" may soon go away. But then Harald is the boundary where to proceed with adding a category. 91.9.118.230 18:23, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Martin (Bakkafrost)[edit]

I saw your question at Jcb's talk page and I can confirm that Martin is in fact a used ship built in 2005. It was named Havila Princess before, and Bakkafrost made this announcement about the planned purchase. Anyhow, thank you for contributing these images. I'm currently digging through the thousands of files in Category:Shetland (check needed) and every now and then there are a few Faroese ships in there that are steaming past your southern neighbours. So may I get back to you if I have questions about these vessels? De728631 (talk) 00:26, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello, yes you are welcome to ask me about Faroese vessels :) I not sure that I can be of any help, but it could be that I know about it or can find informations about it. Yes, I realized, that I had made a mistake thinking that Martin was a newly built ship, I had not heard anything about its past. Thansk for correcting me. Are you from Shetland? There are many Faroese men who are fishermen, my father was one, my uncle is too. There were many more ships here on my island (Suðuroy) some thirty years ago than now. Best regards --EileenSanda (talk) 05:30, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
No, I'm actually from the north of Germany, but I'm interested in aircraft and ships and there is one gentleman from Shetland who has uploaded tons of free images at Flickr which we have now imported. That's how came across this particular category. De728631 (talk) 19:27, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Okay, interesting :) --EileenSanda (talk) 19:32, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
