Drei Zinnen / Tre Cime di Lavaredo[edit]

Hi Gun Powder Ma, I noticed that you have moved Tre Cime di Lavaredo to Drei Zinnen. This is the opposite direction as was decided for the corresponding categories (discussion here). I do not have an opinion regarding the correct name, but page and category should go the same direction. So I would like to ask you to revert this move. thanks --Herzi Pinki (talk) 09:28, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Parasols and umbrellas[edit]

Hi! Parasols are not uncommon in Magna Graecian pottery. Unfortunately, I don't think we have pictures of those vases on Commons. If you know people who can take pictures in the British Museum, I can give you some refs. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 12:09, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

I'll certainly keep my eyes peeled for umbrellas and sunshades on Greek vases. I may be going to Berlin this year, so I'll try to shoot that vase again. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 18:26, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

cycles in categories[edit]

Hi Gun Powder Ma, according to Category structure in Wikimedia Commons there should be no cycles in the category tree. Categories form a containment relationship. If Category:Martelltal is contained in Category:Martell, South Tyrol and Category:Martell, South Tyrol is contained in Category:Martelltal, the conclusion is

  • either this is a cycle, which is not wanted by convention, policies and logic. In that case one of the containments has to be removed.
  • or Category:Martelltal and Category:Martell, South Tyrol are alias names for the same object. Then one of them is obsolete and should be changed to a redirect.

What would be your proposal to solve this?

BTW: Category:Martelltal should be changed to Category:Martell valley? --Herzi Pinki (talk) 21:13, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, fine with me, let's remove the cycle then. As for the category names, there is somewhere a certain regulation which stipulates that category names should be in English (while article names in the respective local languages), but it is not really enforced, since there is currently still no consensus. Personally, I prefer English names for cats, but in cases where no widespread English name seems to exist, the local name may be preferred. This may be the case with "Martell Valley". Btw, Martelltal and Martell are from a logical point two different entities, the former a valley, while the later is municipality in the valley. Better to keep both cats, since - as with other similar cases - I am not sure whether both are absolutely identical down to the last square metre.

Rename[edit]

Hi - I think Foroa was pointing to the explanation regarding disputed renames further up at the Delinker page. If a rename is contentious (as some of the ones you proposed now automatically have become, with you and Foroa disagreeing), you should make individual {{move|Category:Target|Explanation}} requests on these category pages, and discuss the pro and con there. 125.236.217.145 20:42, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, I gave my reasons briefly here: Category talk:Tiberius bridge in Rimini. Part of the problem stems from the fact that Foroa seems to be not even aware that place names are generally put into brackets in case of bridges (in fact, for all things; only if we are dealing with two locations, like in London, Great Britain, a comma is employed).

Dear Gun Powder,

I am emailing from a documentary company in England called Parthenon Entertainment and we would love to use the following image within our documentary series entitled Mystery Files.

We were wondering if you own the copyright to this image as we would like to use it within our documentary for the rights for worlwide, all media and for perpetuity.

If you can email me at: emily.rudge@parthenonentertainment.com or call me on 0044 1923 286 886 that would be great!

Maps of South Tyrol[edit]

Hi Gun Powder Ma. In the Category:Maps of South Tyrol you have the under-Category:Maps of municipalities of the province of South Tyrol where all the maps are of the municipalities in theyr german names. Now in the category Maps of South Tyrol, you have maps of South Tyrol and then a lot of maps of the same municipalities of South Tyrol but in their italian names. So I created the under-Category:Maps of municipalities of the province of Bolzano where to put all this yellow maps. I don't think that this is a problem. You know that Province of South Tyrol = Province of Bolzano. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 22:56, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Commons WikiProject Dacia[edit]

Roman bust of a Dacian tarabostes, Hermitage, St Petersburg, Russia - 20070614.jpg
Hi! I created the Commons:WikiProject Dacia as a sister project to WP:DACIA English and WP:DACIA română to better organize, categorize and improve the quality of media and galleries related to ancient Dacia. From your contributions, I think you might be interested and maybe you wish to join and support the project. Your input is welcomed! Thanks and best regards!

--Codrin.B (talk) 03:47, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks sooo much for the Category:Trajan's Column - Cichorius Plates!--Codrin.B (talk) 03:47, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
You are welcome. It was quite an effort, but the reliefs are of paramount importance to ancient history and, of course, that of Dacia. What you could do is translating all captions (in the image summaries called "title") into Romanian, which I assume is your mother tongue. Note that the English captions are a faithful translation of the original German ones by Cichorius. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 09:49, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
I can imagine the work behind it. I was planning to add the Romanian descriptions eventually. Also, each individual image would benefit from having the narrative from the Trajan's Column - Cichorius Plates gallery inside its description since most users don't know about the gallery but they get to the images first. I did many times and had to search around to figure out the scene description. Another thing I have in mind is a previous and next navigation, as in this book example: File:Oskar Panizza - Der Illusionismus und Die Rettung der Persönlichkeit - Seite 02.jpg. I would be very helpful to navigate around. There is also one thing that confuses me: it is possible to see another Roman number inside most of the pictures which is out of sync with the name of the picture. For example: File:056 Conrad Cichorius, Die Reliefs der Traianssäule, Tafel LVI.jpg has Tafel LVI (i.e. 56) but if you look at the image, you can see LXXVI (i.e. 76). Let alone there is another numbering scheme at the bottom of some images. I guess they were done by the museum/casts? But then these are not the actual Cichorius plates? --Codrin.B (talk) 21:23, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Hi Codrin. Sorry for the late reply. First, I have to say I am unhappy with how the relief descriptions by Cichorius (German) and Frank & Lepper (English translations from Chichorius) which I used for all plates were later swapped by some user when he replaced my original template with the current one. This had the effect that today these descriptions are subsumed erroneously under "title", while the field "description" contains the general title, but I haven't found time yet to undo this change with the necessary scrupulousness. Now to your points:
  1. Not sure what you mean with narrative. The captions on Trajan's Column - Cichorius Plates are identical with the "titles" of the individual images. Each image, moreover, contains a link to the page under "File usage on Commons".
  2. Previous and next navigation: you have my support here
  3. This is the actual and complete set of the Cichorius plates. The faint "LXXVI" actually refers to the scene, not the plate. Many of the plates in Cichorius categorization system which I have reproduced faithfully contain more than one scene. In the "title" you find the captions sorted by scene which is always given in brackets. As for the third numbering system, in this case "201", "202", "203", I have to inform myself about it, but in any case it is of ephemeral importance.
If you are interested in the original documentation by Cichorius and Frank & Lepper send me an e-mail. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 10:40, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the detail and all clarifications. The numbering schemes makes sense now, but for the unadvised user, it might be great to write this in the gallery itself as a note.

  1. When I was talking about the narrative missing, I must have spotted some images which don't have the detailed descriptions from the gallery. But right now, I couldn't find an example to show you. I will send one if it comes up.
  2. Regarding the swapped "title" and "description", I noticed that. It was done by a bot: User:JarektBot, probably using AWB, which could also be used to swap them back. I will drop a note to the user, to see if it can be easily swapped automatically. But I think the intention was good. {{Artwork}} is a great template for archaeological objects and art. I don't know how {{Reliefs of Trajans Column}} was, since it was deleted, but maybe, if it makes sense, a new version could be created based on {{Artwork}}. Or maybe a combination {{Artwork}} and {{Book}} as I did for Category:Danubius Pannonico-Mysicus. See File:Ardea Cinerea in Danubius Pannonico-Mysicus 1726 by Marsigli.jpg for an example. I assume the original {{Reliefs of Trajans Column}} was based on {{Information}} but is just a guess.
  3. I will send you an e-mail. Would love to have that documentation.

Thanks!--Codrin.B (talk) 15:57, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

I merged titles and descriptions of files in Trajan's Column - Cichorius Plates and placed them in description field. Two multilingual fields with 2 halves of the message were too confusing. Hopefully it is OK now. If not let me know and I will try to fix it again. --Jarekt (talk) 18:37, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

It looks nice. Updating to {{Creator}} for Apollodorus and using institution is neat too. Not sure if search engines or commons search will benefit from having a "title" field with a brief description, but looks ok to me. Are you using a bot or AWB directly for these kinds of changes? Would love to get some of your scripts\replacement rules.--Codrin.B (talk) 19:38, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

I was using AWB for this task, but after I was done I deleted all the en:regexp rules I used. As I recall The key portion was "([^\}]*)" used to match strings inside {{...}} brackets for example "\{\{en\|([^\}]*)\}\}" will match strings inside {{en}} as long as no templates were used inside. if you ever need help with any AWB regexp rules I will be happy to help. --Jarekt (talk) 20:10, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

The summary box looks now better arranged, but I still have a couple of improvements in my mind which I exemplarily executed in plate 56:

  1. arranging sculpture and graphics consistently in all field one below the other
  2. removing the quotation marks from the scenes (the plates don't have them either)
  3. unlinking "bas-relief" (-> overlinking)
  4. Tafeln 1-57 --> Tafeln 1–57 (respectively Tafeln 58–113 for the second half of the images)
  5. due to the collapsible infoboxes we still have double links for both en:Trajan's Column and de:Conrad Cichorius, but I do not know how to avoid them

Gun Powder Ma (talk) 10:05, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

I changed your bullets to numbers for easier referencing. In general I am confused about your concerns about "overlinking". I have never run into that term before and usually encounter much too few links than too many. For example why would you want to remove link from link "bas-relief" (#3)? It is not widely known term. I also do not understand your last concern (#5) about double links, since I do not think that is an issue. I think #1 is a good idea to add a few <br/> but I would still prefer to keep wikicode in a single line since some of your changes, like artist field do not influence the outcome. #2 about removing the italic formatting quotation marks, I added them to delineate info about all the plates and info about specific plate. I think it is easier to read but I am not very attached to it. #4 I see a lot of changes like that in templates and I am often confused about them, since I can not tell the difference between the 2 types of dash - may be different font. It is fine with me to change it. About #5 I think we should remove author info from description field - it is redundant with the author field. --Jarekt (talk) 12:57, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Silk Road[edit]

Hey there, I just saw your comment on the silk road map (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/74/Silk_route.jpg) I have no idea if it is original research of not. In my version of the map I had simply used the same caption of the original map image: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Silk_Route_extant.JPG Maybe it's best to get in touch with that author if he is still around. Best, Splette (talk) 00:13, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I did not mean to take away something from your work. The graphics are fine. But to the best my knowledge, the Silk Road denotes only the land routes. I raised the issue here. Regards Gun Powder Ma (talk) 10:23, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
User:Wikiality123 is more or less retired. But I think we should remove it from our articles as it's clearly original research and wrong. Dougweller (talk) 13:18, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
We can quickly fix this: Splette, could you upload a new version without all the sea routes and those running to the east and west of India northward? Also, you should shorten the route in China itself to a point above the "a" of China. This way we could continue to use the map. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 15:58, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
Found a number of clearly reliable sources about the sea routes. So this is a bit premature, let's wait until we can agree on this. Dougweller (talk) 15:36, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
These sources called the sea routes explicitly "silk road"? Apart from the question of problematic terminology (how a road can exist on sea?), I am not aware of such usage. However, I don't have an overt interest in this question, I just passingly noticed it, so if it gets complicated or time-consuming, I rather prefer to be out, meaning: do as you think best. :-) Regards Gun Powder Ma (talk) 17:26, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Roman bridges in Turkey[edit]

Both of these two bridges are located near Limyra respectively Kemer; they are not situated in these towns but several kilometres outside of them. That's the reason why they are called in specialist literature Bridge near Limyra and Bridge near Kemer. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 14:25, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

I recommend you to request naming in English Wikipedia. Takabeg (talk) 14:27, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
You are aware that you have started edit-warring about it? Gun Powder Ma (talk) 18:51, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
Please don't continue edit wars. Commons is not a place of discussion on Commons is not battle field. You don't have any intention to apply to en:Wikipedia:Requested moves ? If so I'll never support such original titles. For example, I couldn't find "Bridge near Kemer" in reliable sources but I could find "Kemer Bridge". Takabeg (talk) 21:28, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
As you say, Commons is not place for edit-wars, so I wonder why you have been edit-warring against the editor who happened to wrote the articles on these two bridges, that is me. There is only a single scholarly source, Wurster and Ganzert, about the bridge in the entire Wikipedia, if not entire internet, and it speaks on p. 304 of a Bridge 4 km upstream of Kemer. On p. 305, fig. 19 the bridge is called "Brücke bei Kemer" = Bridge near Kemer. Hope this settles our dispute. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 21:45, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Kategorien mit namensgleichen gallery pages[edit]

Was ich in Commons:Deletion requests/Eurymedon Bridge (Aspendos) zur Sprache brachte, gilt ebenso für Bridge near Kemer / http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Bridge_near_Kemer und Bridge near Limyra / http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Bridge_near_Limyra: Die Kategorie enthält jeweils außer den einzelnen files eine Seite mit gleichem Namen, die alle diese files noch einmal zeigt.

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Celje[edit]

Hi, what do the mountains of Tyrol have to do with Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Celje? --Eleassar (t/p) 16:22, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Nothing. I don't know why it appeared there. I put it on the general page. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 16:23, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Then please don't revert me when I remove your comment from this request. Thanks. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:25, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
You also removed it from the general page, where it belongs. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 16:26, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
No, I was editing the specific request page, which you may verify in the history.[1] The article title is "Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_in_Category:Celje". --Eleassar (t/p) 16:27, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
I posted it on Commons:Deletion requests/2013/01/22 where it appears as 1.107 Category:Mountains of Tyrol. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 16:33, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
You have obviously not posted it right, because the main page doesn't contain your edit in the history,[2] whereas the mentioned request does.[3] I'm now going to undo your edit. It would be welcome if you verified which page were you editing before you saved your edits. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:40, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Irish Air Corps Anson[edit]

I am 100% certain that the photo I added to the IAC article is of an Avro 652A Anson 19. Many thousands of these were built. The link you provided was to the Avro Type 652, not 652A. Only the very few 652's built had just three windows and none of these survived WW2. RuthAS (talk) 16:33, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
