Update map[edit]

This map needs updating

Hi, could you please update File:Map of Pirate Parties.svg? Helper201 (talk) 06:29, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

cannot, too technical for me Estopedist1 (talk) 10:29, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Administraator?[edit]

Tere, Estopedist! Kas sa soovid saada Commonsi administraatoriks? Ma võin luua vastava taotluse. Muide, palun arhiveeri oma kasutajalehekülge nii eesti vikis kui Commonsis. Taivo (talk) 10:56, 14 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You may also want to assess your English skills and update your babel boxes.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 11:27, 14 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, Taivo! It is a great distinction. I have to think about it. It means great responsibility for the world largest free files database. When fighting against massive vandalism in Wikidata, I have encountered several attacks to my Wikimedia account, and my user account is still not double-authenticated--Estopedist1 (talk) 09:14, 15 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Palace of Auburn Hills[edit]

Hello, can you shine light on this edit? I think I am a bit confused as to why a CFD needs to take place when the official title of the venue is incorrect, as evidenced by enwiki.--Astros4477 (talk) 15:16, 21 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Astros4477: I am not a native English speaker. I guess that "the" can be add in any event venue in USA. Is there any other venue in Commons, which start with "the"? Couldn't find at Category:Sports venues in the United States by state Estopedist1 (talk) 15:45, 21 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"The" is certainly a prefix that is informally used for many sports venues; however, there are some venues that have "The" formally as a prefix. On Commons, the most notable example is Category:The Forum (Inglewood, California). Overall, it is not particullarly common, but the inclusion on enwiki and the logo of the venue itself, seems sufficient enough to show it is a part of the formal name of the venue.--Astros4477 (talk) 15:58, 21 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Astros4477 @Themightyquill and Auntof6: is the using of "the" certainly necessary here? Estopedist1 (talk) 17:04, 21 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The extra space after "1906" may not fit the specific criteria of aims #3 and 6, but is it not an obvious human error that should be corrected? CentreLeftRight 18:51, 1 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@CentreLeftRight we rarely correct file names with redundant or missing spaces. It is possible that in future a bot will fix such technical mistakes Estopedist1 (talk) 20:49, 1 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

E. Liiv[edit]

Esitasid kasutaja Liivasiil pilte kustutamiseks, aga praktikas on põhjust eeldada, et tal on vajalikud load olemas. Suheldes kasutajatega, kes on Commonsiga vähe tuttavad (lisanud ainult üksikuid pilte), oleks vaja neile seda eraldi seletada, et mida ja kuidas teha. Muidu tekitab see ainult arusaamatusi. Kruusamägi (talk) 21:38, 26 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Kruusamägi sorry, I don't remember this User talk:Liivasiil's case from 25 August 2021. Maybe user:Taivo wants to say something? Estopedist1 (talk) 05:46, 27 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Mis seal ikka, Eestis puudub panoraamivabadus, mis tähendab, et sihukesed fotod vajavad KAHT luba: niihästi arhitektilt/skulptorilt/kunstnikult kui ka fotograafilt. Taivo (talk) 09:59, 27 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Vajavadki. Aga see ei muuda kuigi seda, mida alustuseks välja tõin: on vaja kasutajale selgitada, et mida ja kuidas ta tegema peab. Lihtsalt asjade kustutamine tekitab ainult arusaamatusi ja probleeme. Kruusamägi (talk) 10:51, 27 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wrong nationality[edit]

Thank you for adding this. His nationality is wrong. He was only a citizen of the United States from 1957 until his death. Have tried to fix it, but apparently I don't know how. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 12:38, 26 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pictogram voting keep-light-green.svg Fixed now. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 12:42, 26 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SergeWoodzing I moved the description into Wikidata. Now the description is redundant in Commons. Please keep Commons clean and centralized info will be collected into Wikidata entry Estopedist1 (talk) 14:37, 27 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK as long as you stop removing details from the category descriptions which are not covered by Wikidata. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 14:40, 27 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Church category names[edit]

Please note that in i.e. Denmark, Sweden, Norway & Germany we almost exclusively use the native names for church categories (see for example Category:Listed churches in Ystad Municipality). In my experience this has the advantage of reducing risk of confusion between same name churches in different countries, makes it easier to determine which country a church is located in and makes it much more likely that a native contributor will select the correct category.--Hjart (talk) 11:16, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Hjart I think it is not sustainable solution (currently solved by redirects), and hardens to harmonize global churches naming. For a visionary human (considering globalization and global language harmonization), this native/regional pecularity is just a temporary stage. However, I can live with it, if others want it. Estopedist1 (talk) 11:31, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A visionary would try to exploit wikidata for globalization rather than try to "harmonize" commons category names too much. I think a lot of people would appreciate it if your church categories end in "kirik" rather than "chuch". Hjart (talk) 11:41, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In the future, you may just want to change Template:Religion in Sweden by year. I see that the churches categories were included so there's maybe 100 more categories needed. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 00:55, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Geogroup templates?[edit]

Can I ask you to add {{Geogroup|level=1}} to all streets in Denmark, that doesn't allready have it? Preferably right above any {{Wikidata Infobox}} template. I'm on a Linux box and it appears AWB doesn't work quite as well here. Hjart (talk) 08:14, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Hjart of course I can, but do you have a good idea, how to get full list of streets in Denmark? Estopedist1 (talk) 08:25, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That would be https://petscan.wmflabs.org/?psid=22332869 . Just filter out all titles with " in " or " of " in them (easy with awk). Hjart (talk) 08:35, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Hjart like this? https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Adelgade_(Hobro)&action=edit Estopedist1 (talk) 08:50, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Exactly! If you can avoid the empty line between the 2 templates, that would be preferred though. Hjart (talk) 08:54, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Hjart: Done. But some problems:
  1. Category:Streets on Slotsholmen #preposition “ON”, adequacy?
  2. Category:Gader i Den gamle By #category name should be in English?
  3. Category:Ryk Ind # Wikidata Infobox is missing
  4. Category:Søborg Hovedgade # Wikidata Infobox is missing --Estopedist1 (talk) 09:47, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Thank you. Slotsholmen is an island in Copenhagen, so I figured "on" would be appropriate. Fixed the others.
    Can you do [Copenhagen] too? That's a list of almost 900 though. Hjart (talk) 10:10, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @Hjart I will put this Copenhagen in my to-do-list (very likely for this month). If this should be geogrouped ASAP, then let me know. Nice holidays! Estopedist1 (talk) 11:06, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I'm in no hurry. Would just be very nice to have. Happens once in a while that I'm trying to find things in there. Hjart (talk) 11:11, 22 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Isn't it possible to let a bot do this? I created many of Copenhagen categories so the adding of geogroup to them takes a lot of space on my watchlist right now. Alternatively split it up in portions. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 08:30, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Dannebrog Spy it is a one-time job, so I don't create a bot account for it. AutoWikiBrowser is quite bot-like. Sorry, if it cluttered your watchlist. 92 categories is still in my AutoWikiBrowser list. Do you mind, If I finish this job for 92 categories yet, so there is not loose ends? Estopedist1 (talk) 08:36, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Could you please wait just a day or two? Just so I have a chance to se if there are other things on my watchlist. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 08:46, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Dannebrog Spy: no problem. But please tell me when you are ready Estopedist1 (talk) 08:47, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, I will do that. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 08:53, 23 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, you may continue. I had to chance my watchlist from the normal 250 posts to 500 so that I could still see everything from the past week. But with 400+ posts at the moment it takes some time to load. And it also took some time to look it through. So please remember another time that so many edits in a short time may have consequences for other users. --Dannebrog Spy (talk) 14:58, 24 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Hjart: finally ✓ Done. Thanks for the comment Dannebrog Spy! Estopedist1 (talk) 18:46, 24 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tesla Supercharger category changes[edit]

Hello Estopedist1. A question about your changes for the Tesla Supercharger charging stations categories: Why would you change the template in a category from world wide to europe-only even the category itself already holds categories outside of europe? --D-Kuru (talk) 06:39, 27 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@D-Kuru really thanks, mate! ✓ Done: all corrected. Sidenotice: the visual layout of the template (i.e. {{Navigation by country}} should be better Estopedist1 (talk) 06:46, 27 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please don't delete the introduction[edit]

Categories should contain at least some minimal textual information to ensure, that the correct wikidata item is linked. Wikidata alone is never sufficient. --Rodomonte (talk) 06:27, 5 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Minor spelling note[edit]

Hi, Estopedist1. I noticed some of the CFDs you started. When you give the reasoning for something, the word to use is rationale, not rational. :) -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:47, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sports in the Isle of Wight[edit]

"Isle of Wight" is an English county. The main category is Sports in England by county, thus the category is "Sports in the Isle of Wight".. We don't care what en.wiki does, we are Commons. The correction was suggested to me by some English speaking Commoners from England. -- Blackcat Ar Icon Contact.svg 20:28, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Blackcat I am not native English speaker, so I am helpless. But certainly we care what enwiki do, however we don't need to follow enwiki in every time. For the sake of harmony, "in" fits best, but I reckon that CFD would be best solution. In addition, category's history is lost, I cannot see who requested the move Estopedist1 (talk) 05:55, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
CfD might be an appropriate solution, anyway I wish to point you out that I got advice, on the topic, by a native speaker back in 2015 (i had to look back in my talk archive). -- Blackcat Ar Icon Contact.svg 18:33, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
