Please help replace this outdated license[edit]


Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:

Hello. We need the help of a Chinese speaker with an interest in art for some advice about creator templates.

As you may know, in each file about a non-anonymous artwork should be included a "creator" template that inludes the name of the artist, his dates, and a few other infos. When it is fully displayed, it looks like this

Pietro Perugino  (1448–1523) Link back to Creator infobox template wikidata:Q5827
Pietro Perugino
Alternative names birth name: Pietro Vannucci
Description Italian painter
Date of birth/death between circa 1445 and circa 1448 1523
Location of birth/death Città della Pieve Fontignano
Work location Perugia, Florence, Rome, Orvieto
Authority control

This kind of template is often lacking for Chinese artists. One of the reasons is that it is not always easy for non-Chinese to create this kind of template. That's why we should probably have a standardized payout that would help us to create them.

The main question is about the "alternative names" field. The thing is that if we put all possible alternative names, with all romanisation system that exist, we get something huge and cumbersome. I suggest that in most cases, we use Chinese characters for the Chinese versions, and only pinyin and Chinese characters on the Western-languages versions. This means that we don't use Wade-Giles and other romanisation systems that have sometimes been quite widely used in English. The justification is that these systems are less and less used, except for 20th century Taiwanese names. For them, we can probably add Wade-Giles and drop simplified Chinese characters. Besides, Wade-Giles spellings are not really "alternative names", just different spellings and they easily inferred from the pinyin. So they should only be created as redirects.

So, what I suggest for non-20th-century artists is an "alternative names" field looking like this:

  • In English:

surname and name: Li Bai (李白)
Template:Courtesy name: Tai Bai (太白)
peudonym: Qīnglián Jūshì (青莲居士/青蓮居士)

  • In simplified Chinese :

姓名: 李白
表字: 太白
号: 青莲居士 (青蓮居士)

  • in traditional Chinese:

姓名: 李白
表字: 太白
號: 青蓮居士

Does it seem all right to you ?--Zolo (talk) 08:33, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
