Voorne[edit]

Hello Please do something about File:Voorne in 500 - 700 AD (Berendsen).jpg. This picture is really good. I don't understand what is wrong with it. Best Regards.--Io Herodotus (talk) 21:28, 28 June 2013 (UTC)[]

I'm sorry, but I can't do very much in this case. The image never had a license which is required on commons - compare Commons:Licensing. I cannot find any inication for a free license on the given source - http://www.geo.uu.nl/fg/palaeogeography/data/geology/ICFS.pdf - either. You may try to raise an Commons:Undeletion request but I don't see a big chance for success. regards--JuTa 21:38, 28 June 2013 (UTC)[]

You are right, probably the pic. was made in 2014 . --Milei.vencel (talk) 05:19, 9 January 2016 (UTC)[]

Parthenon[edit]

About the categories "Parthenon in (date)" you have removed "Restoration of the Parthenon". Why did you remove it ? It really showed the different steps of the restorations. At least this category must have a link, whatsoever, with the Parthenon and not only Greece. It could be ""The Parthenon per year" or something like that. What do you think ?--Io Herodotus (talk) 08:46, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[]

@Io Herodotus: Sorting categories by year into restoration is wrong. Restoration is when you see scaffolds, machines, and/or workers on the picture. This is not the case on all pictures by year. So, category "Parthenon in 2009" is logically to sort into "2009 in Athens". There could be also a category "Partehon by year", as sub of "Athens by year", but currently there is none. The category "Restoration of the Parthenon" is to add independently to each picture that shows restoration. --A.Savin 13:41, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[]
OK I agree, a restoration doesn't last so long, it's wasn't the right word. "Athens by year" could be a sub of "Athens by year", but also a sub of "Parthenon". I insist on that point. Someone looking for images of the Partenon wouldn't necessarily look for "Athens by year".--Io Herodotus (talk) 16:06, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[]
@Io Herodotus: Yes. Category:Parthenon by year and for parental categories: Category:Parthenon + Category:Athens by year. --A.Savin 16:09, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[]
Since each category, like "cat. The Parthenon in 2009" has a sub, here "cat. Athens in 2009". Do you think it's necessary for "cat. Partenon by year" to have a sub "cat. Athens by year", it looks like a duplicate to me. --Io Herodotus (talk) 17:33, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[]

Maps[edit]

Hello. I would like to create maps for the provinces of Cambodia (for the geolocalization). I don't know how to create them or how to start them. Regards --Io Herodotus (talk) 02:24, 14 August 2016 (UTC)[]

Hello! You need to know to work with a vector graphics program like Inkscape, Illustrator or CorelDraw (better) or a raster graphic program like Gimp or Photoshop (worse). Then it is necessary to know what map projections are and how they work. Without this knowledge it is senseless to start to work on location maps. Do you have the knowledge? Regards, NNW 11:59, 15 August 2016 (UTC)[]
Thank you for your anwer. I know what a map projection is, only on theory, I have tried to use Inskape but I gave up, I couldn't find the tutorials for that. Nevertherless I have created some maps Zuiderzee Works, Stelling van Amsterdam or Plan Delta. Do you think that's enough ?--Io Herodotus (talk) 14:17, 15 August 2016 (UTC)[]
Difficult to say. It depends on how good you want to have your maps. Which source do you want to use? You could use OSM but it has the wrong projection. You could ignore this because the provinces in Cambodia are relatively small but if you want to create a correct location map then OSM won't be a good source for you. Then you will have to be attentive with the data, e.g. it is a pity that you chose JPG for Stelling van Amsterdam the Netherlands blank.jpg. The first version is a map with sharp edges but the more you changed the file the more blurred it became. This could have been avoided by using PNG instead of JPG. For location maps it is important to have a good quality of data because you don't know in which size your location map will be used (that's why a vector graphic is always better than a raster graphic).

Lift bridges in Amsterdam ?[edit]

Hallo You Herodotus, when trying today improving the categorization of bridges in Amsterdam, i saw to my surprise that there is new (dd. 10 apr 2017) Category:Lift bridges in Amsterdam. And i saw that the category is very empty: no text, no comment, no explanation, no image and no sub-category...

And then i saw that you made it. I really appreciate that you are also working with bridges in Amsterdam, but i have doubts here. Do you know many lift bridges in Amsterdam? Do you know files on Commons that belong in this category? Do you know about yourself or other people intending to upload relevant files to Commons?

When i checked the Category:Lift bridges in the Netherlands, i saw 11 subcategories, ten with contents and this one, and 11 files that were not in a subcat. I saw one file that should be put in an existing subcat, which i did. So now there are 10 (ten) orphany files in the category Lift bridges in the Netherlands, really not a good start to make new subcategories. Keeping in mind that all bridges can be categorized in a bridges-category, so local as is reasonable, as in: Bridges in North Holland, Bridges in Amsterdam, Bridges in Amsterdam-Noord, etc. Yours, --Paulbe (talk) 22:35, 26 April 2017 (UTC)[]

Hello. When I created Category:Lift bridges in Amsterdam, I didn't know the existence of Category:Drawbridges in Amsterdam, I apologize for that; we may ask for its deletion.
By the way a drawbridge is a bascule bridge, isn't ? Category:Bascule bridges in the Netherlands has bridges in Amsterdam which are not drawbridges, is there a need for another category ? How to name it ? When I saw that I gave up...We could think about it. Regards.--Io Herodotus (talk) 23:40, 26 April 2017 (UTC)[]

inkspace[edit]

Il est conseillé d'utiliser inkspace plutôt que des logiciels donnant des images en jpeg; ceci je le comprends fort bien. J'essaie de m'y mettre mais je bute sur quelques problèmes. Où trouver un forum ou un lieu adéquate pour avoir une assistance ?--Io Herodotus (talk) 15:16, 29 April 2018 (UTC)[]

Bonjour, il y a plein de choses sur fr:Wikipédia:Atelier graphique/Contenu wikigraphiste. Pour les forums, linux graphics est pas mal même si vous utilisez pas linux. Aussi Imppao's Weblog | Un autre weblog sur les logiciels libres est bien. Bon courage ! --Touam (talk) 19:04, 29 April 2018 (UTC)[]
Après, les images jpg ne sont pas proscrites, ça dépend vraiment de ce que tu veux représenter. Un dessin vectoriel réalisé sous Inkscape est plus utile pour un schéma, mais si il s'agit d'un dessin réaliste/détaillé, un jpg convient très bien. Triton (talk) 18:01, 30 April 2018 (UTC)[]
L'image jpg bave quand je la travaille trop, c'est horrible. Merci pour l'info sur le forum linux, qui a l'air pas mal. Y a-t-il un bac à sable sur wikimedia commons ? pour en discuter. --Io Herodotus (talk) 03:24, 1 May 2018 (UTC)[]
C'est pour la couverture de la pochette d'album des Beatles? Un dessin vectoriel serait en effet mieux. Le mieux est de demander sur l'Atelier comme dit Touam Triton (talk) 11:13, 1 May 2018 (UTC)[]
Ce pourrait être ça en effet, mais je travaille sur "File:Sarasvati-ancient-river.jpg". Sinon l'atelier graphic est surchargé; j'ai longtemps été dessinateur donc j'aimerais maîtriser cet outils, mais j'ai des réflexes autocad ou microstation qui ne m'induisent souvent en erreur. --Io Herodotus (talk) 14:49, 1 May 2018 (UTC)[]
Salut, si tu veux je connais assez bien Inkscape et les cartes comme celle sur laquelle tu travailles. Il faudrait la vectoriser en svg. N'hésite pas si tu as des questions ! Skimel (talk) 15:59, 1 May 2018 (UTC)[]
Merci. J'ai commencé un svg. Puis-je le mettre sur un brouillon quelque part ? J'ai colorié "rivage actuel" pas de problème, mais pas "rivage ancien" qui est adjacent et a donc une limite commune et je ne sais pas comment faire (d'ailleurs je viens de voir une erreur sur la carte, rivage actuel n'est pas dans la légende. --Io Herodotus (talk) 11:43, 2 May 2018 (UTC)[]

RE: Vitraux de la Sagrada Familia[edit]

Que voulez-vous dire, les saints fondateurs?--Canaan (talk) 15:01, 16 June 2018 (UTC)[]
Par exemple les saints sur ces photos: File:Barcelona 2015 10 12 0241 (22559512203).jpg, File:SF - Claustro.jpg. --Io Herodotus (talk) 15:25, 16 June 2018 (UTC)[]

Saints at the exterior of the nave[edit]

  • Gaudí said that the the saints who are founders of religion orders and that are linked to Barcelona, should have sculptures. Full list is: Pere Nolasc, Antoni Maria Claret i Clarà, Joaquima de Vedruna, Joan Bosco, Josep Oriol, Josep Manyanet i Vives, Joana de Lestonnac, Vicenç de Paül, Felip Neri, Josep de Calassanç, Ignasi de Loiola, Jeroni, Francesc d'Assís i Teresa de Jesús.
  • Good job. I have edited som of the categories. --Jordiferrer (talk) 14:18, 18 June 2018 (UTC)[]
    I didn't name the category of St Vicent of Paul, because he is barely visible. --Io Herodotus (talk) 15:23, 18 June 2018 (UTC)[]
  • I've been aways for a while, sorry. Not sure if Caiaphas is present at the sculpture of the trial of Jesus. The catalan references just mention Pontius Pilate washing his hands. And, maybe we could create the category "Sculptures of people at the Segrada Família" but not sure if that is needed, for now. --Jordiferrer (talk) 18:31, 23 August 2018 (UTC)[]

Photos[edit]

Je vais chercher à voir, même si je n'ai pas un très bon zoom.--Canaan (talk) 15:09, 18 June 2018 (UTC)[]

Merci, oui il doit falloir ça...ou un drone. --Io Herodotus (talk) 06:13, 19 June 2018 (UTC)[]
Salut. A propos de cela reste le même, je suis désolé. J'ai fait une nouvelle photo de l'abside, de la façade de la Passion avec la nouvelle croix triomphale et la croix. Aujourd'hui, je n'ai pas été à l'intérieur, de quoi exactement avez-vous besoin des vitraux? Je pourrais regarder mes fichiers. Salutations.--Canaan (talk) 16:26, 10 July 2018 (UTC)[]
Waoh Génial. Merci. Pour les vitraux, je qu'ils ne sont pas encore installés ,je verrais demain, il est tard ici. --Io Herodotus (talk) 16:46, 10 July 2018 (UTC)[]
Ce que je cherche, ce sont les vitraux de la partie haute de la nef comme ici File:2008 Sagrada Familia 13.JPG, mais je crois qu'ils ne sont pas encore posés, ainsi que le saint Vincent de Paul si l'échafaudage est parti. --Io Herodotus (talk) 11:13, 11 July 2018 (UTC)[]
Ils sont trois anges.--Canaan (talk) 15:22, 15 July 2018 (UTC)[]
Je ne suis pas tout à fait sûr, mais je crois que Marie est plus avancée que celles des évangélistes.--Canaan (talk) 10:59, 18 July 2018 (UTC)[]
Je regarderai pour voir, bien que cette photo semble être faite à partir d'une terrasse ou quelque chose, non? Salutations.--Canaan (talk) 15:22, 20 July 2018 (UTC)[]

Salut. Je ne sais pas si l'un de ceux-ci vous servira ([1], [2], [3]), il est difficile de faire une bonne photo générale comme ça au niveau de la rue. Nouvelle photo de la croix triomphale plus d'échafaudage ([4]).--Canaan (talk) 16:36, 21 July 2018 (UTC)[]

Derivative of copyrightable original graphic; uploader claimed authorship only for the photograph but not the original graphic Fut.Perf. 10:26, 16 August 2018 (UTC)[]

This is a message I had from Leonard (the author of the pic) in 2016. --Io Herodotus (talk) 04:20, 6 November 2018 (UTC)[]
Is this the image you reference?
This is mis-attributed, likely being a cropped camera image that I took of interpretive materials publicly presented at the site or a nearby museum. My PD release is for that image and not the original text. I believe that the credit for the original image should be attributed to the Hellenic Ministry of Culture.
This was quite some time ago and I do not have the supporting detail.
Regarding the color scheme, the bottoms of the columns reflect the standing portions prior to reconstruction. The mixed assembly above illustrates the 1923-1930 re-stacking of fallen pieces. Accurate measurements enabled by modern technology enable the original source of the column drums to be identified. A proper modern reconstruction will involve the disassembly and re-stacking (after insertion of new stone cuttings into the earlier restoration's cement-filled cavities in the drums).
The source image's descriptive text:
The north collonade of the Parthenon was restored for the first time during the years 1923-1930.
Restoration work was focused on the area between the 4th and the 11th columns from the east.

:
The purpose of the current restoration project, in process since the year 2000, is to correct
the inadequacies of the previous intervention.

for this purpose, the monument;s architectural members are dismantled and conserved. The cement
fillings are replaced with new ones of Pentelic marble and the restored members are reinstalled in
their original positions. Titanium clamps are used for joining the architectural members.

Completion of the work, with all previous misplacements of architectural members corrected, will
give the north side of the monument the appearance it had before the explosion of 1687

@Io Herodotus: Hi, it would be better for you to set up these categories correctly rather than having me follow you along fixing your well-intentioned mistakes.

Rolls Royce Silver Dawn[edit]

Ci-joint une message que je viens de mettre sur le page discursive pour la "Rolls Royce en Australie":

What it is[edit]

I've done a bit of googling and I'm >98% sure it's a Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn (unless they had a special name for Australian customers ... which seems very unlikely).

Quand je veux regarder le nombre de vue d'une photo, je tombe toujours sur "Analyse des pages vues" pour "cats" et "dogs". Est-ce un bug? --Io Herodotus (talk) 03:17, 18 October 2019 (UTC)[]

C'est que le lien est complété. Il suffit de choisir le bon projet (commons.wikimedia.org) et remplacer "cats" et "dogs" par le nom de l'image (File:abc.jpg). --H2O(talk) 10:34, 18 October 2019 (UTC)[]
Merci, cela fonctionne. Bizarre tout de même, il faudra donc faire cette manipulation à chaque fois! --Io Herodotus (talk) 03:21, 19 October 2019 (UTC)[]
Question: Est-ce l'Analyse des pages vues qui a changé, ou ais-je changé involontairement un paramètre? C'est quand même pénible de remettre le bon projet et d'écrire le nom du fichier à chaque fois. --Io Herodotus (talk) 03:36, 22 October 2019 (UTC)[]
Comment faire pour que cela revienne comme avant ? Suis-je le seul à avoir ce problème? --Io Herodotus (talk) 16:55, 8 November 2019 (UTC)[]
Ça dépend des paramètres personnels que tu as choisis et de l'endroit d'où tu lances l'outil. Si tu cliques sur le lien de l'outil depuis la page de l'historique d'un fichier et que ton paramètre est «auto-complétion», alors l'outil affiche directement les statistiques de ce fichier. Si tu lances l'outil depuis la page principale de l'outil et que ton paramètre est «auto-complétion», alors l'outil affiche l'exemple de cat et dog. Si tu lances l'outil alors que tu as choisi et enregistré le paramètre «pas d'auto-complétion», je suppose que l'outil affiche une boîte vide. -- Asclepias (talk) 17:46, 8 November 2019 (UTC)[]
Merci. Mais où sont ces paramètres? Je suppose que c'est quelque part dans préférence, mais impossible de trouver. --Io Herodotus (talk) 14:17, 10 November 2019 (UTC)[]
Il s'agit des paramètres disponibles sur l'interface même de l'outil, en haut à droite. -- Asclepias (talk) 19:14, 10 November 2019 (UTC)[]
Merci. Je clique sur le lien de l'outil depuis "historique du fichier" (depuis la page principale, je ne vois pas cet outil); dans ces paramètres, "auto-complétion" est bien renseigné, pourtant les chiens chats reviennent quand même! Peux-t-on choisir le projet? Je tombe sur wiki.en alors que je suis en commons-wikimedia. --Io Herodotus (talk) 06:39, 11 November 2019 (UTC)[]
Ah, je crois qu'il y a un problème dans la version française de l'interface de Commons. Normalement, sur Commons, j'utilise la version anglaise de l'interface, c'est pourquoi cela fonctionne. Mais si tu utilises la version française, c'est probablement ce qui explique que ça ne fonctionne pas. Prenons un exemple concret. Disons le fichier File:Molenplaat.jpg.
-- Asclepias (talk) 14:31, 11 November 2019 (UTC)[]

ionic capitals[edit]

Hello friend

You seem to be a specialist on the matter. When I look at those two pictures File:Propylaea, Athenian Acropolis (internal view), Athens cityscape. Athens, Greece.jpg and File:Propylaea, Acropolis, Athens (10045826295).jpg an ionic capital has turn 90 degrees! Would you have any explanation for this ?

Regards --Io Herodotus (talk) 01:55, 4 March 2020 (UTC)[]

@Io Herodotus: Hello, Io Herodotus. I studied classical archaeology long ago. I do this as a hobby. The Propylaea has two facades decorated with Doric columns while its interior is supported by Ionic columns. The capitals of these columns face those walking inside the building and look up to admire the structure. The main priority of men like Pericles, Phidias, Ictinus, Callicrates and Mnesicles was to satisfy the vanity of the Athenians who would reward or ruin them at will with their vote in the assembly. This is my interpretation. Best regards.

Thank you. Look closely those at two pictures. In one of them (in 2013), the ionic capitals are both facing East-West, whereas on the other picture (picture of 2011) one capital is oriented East-West and the other one is oriented North-South. The 2011 picture looks odd! Did they try different possibilities ? Maybe we don't know how originally, they were oriented.

Best regards --Io Herodotus (talk) 05:23, 4 March 2020 (UTC)[]

Propylaea, Athenian Acropolis (cropped).jpg Le_Bistro français

Good evening, Io Herodotus. Tomorrow I am going to climb the Rock myself and see with my own eyes. I will also photograph the Propylaea from every angle giving the necessary attention to the Ionic columns. Then I will upload the photos to Wikimedia Commons. The pictures you sent me are a few years old. The whole place up there is under heavy reconstruction. Things might have changed since then. I can only say that in the reconstruction of the Acropolis work the best minds of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture. Personally, I never noticed what you are telling me but to be honest I never focused my attention on it. Also, my instructors at college (that was 20 years ago) never made a mention of it, either. I doubt, however, if the capitals were in place back then. I will see if I can find an archaeologist up there to answer my question. I will tell you more tomorrow. Best regards.

@Io Herodotus: This is one of the pictures I took of the Propylaea earlier today: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_two_Ionic_capitals_of_the_Propylaea_on_March_5,_2020.jpg There are only two Ionic capitals in the whole structure and this is their current position. I do not know why the place them like this but my assumption as I told you yesterday is that their purpose is to face people as they look up for aesthetic reasons. I do not think there has been any experiment up in the reconstruction in general. The people responsible for the work are all highly experienced archaeologists, scientists, and professors in universities.

@George E. Koronaios: I think I solved the mystery. It was an optical illusion. Even in 2011 the capitals were both in the same direction. I made a zoom in the picture to realize this. Sorry I wasted your time. Io Herodotus

Catégorie Parthénon[edit]

Bonjour. J'ai en effet essayé de trouver la cause du problème, mais je n'ai rien trouvé et je n'ai pas de piste. Cordialement. BrightRaven (talk) 15:36, 14 April 2020 (UTC)[]

Mysterious categories[edit]

On those files :Parthenon 1, Parthenon 2, Parthenon 3, category "North-East view of the Parthenon" is mysterious to me. If it is inquired on the file, it appears twice (which does not interfere with the tag which normally prohibits that); if it's not inquired, it still appears and I don't know where this information comes from. --Io Herodotus (talk) 04:36, 15 April 2020 (UTC)[]

You speak of the doubled category. I do not understand, too, but as info: I purged the file pages and also did null edits. So let’s hope this will be fixed in some hours (recently a similar issue lasted for another day). — Speravir – 23:16, 15 April 2020 (UTC)[]
The problem is still not resolved. Some people work on it... nearly 1000 views for those files! --Io Herodotus (talk) 03:26, 19 April 2020 (UTC)[]

They had the category within the description, perhaps that is the reason for that. Erechtheum 2 still has its category within the description (I didn't do any edit on it). --Io Herodotus (talk) 11:49, 19 April 2020 (UTC)[]

I fixed this one, and this does not display anymore the category twice. Strange, it is. — Speravir – 01:43, 20 April 2020 (UTC)[]
No, it's not properly fixed yet, look closely. --Io Herodotus (talk) 03:56, 21 April 2020 (UTC)[]
Regarding the category issue the edit has fixed this! If you did not see this this is or was a caching issue. — Speravir – 23:55, 21 April 2020 (UTC)[]
Categories are written (usually on the bottom) in the file, they can be modified. This not true for this file. --Io Herodotus (talk) 02:51, 22 April 2020 (UTC)[]

Look at that one : Mausoleo !...--Io Herodotus (talk) 16:20, 21 April 2020 (UTC)[]

  • Try to remove "Category:Eastern side of the Erechtheum" on that one : Erechtheum 3 !!! --Io Herodotus (talk) 09:40, 25 April 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Some people keep searching, even if not many people write on this problem here (nearly 1000 views for some pictures)... No one has found the solution yet. --Io Herodotus (talk) 04:05, 6 May 2020 (UTC)[]

  • Impossible to connect to Phabricator. "You must verify your email address to log in" nothing there. --Io Herodotus (talk) 02:22, 18 May 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Conclusion: At the creation of a file on commons wikimedia, if the category is inquired within the description, this creates a bug which is yet impossible to fix (hoping someone will resolve the problem). --Io Herodotus (talk) 10:37, 22 May 2020 (UTC)[]
  • The problem seems to be nearly solved. If the category is inquired within the description, this no longer creates a bug, (I tried tried it). The files I have mentioned may be modified... except that one : Erechtheum 3, impossible to remove "Category:Eastern side of the Erechtheum". --Io Herodotus (talk) 03:31, 23 May 2020 (UTC)[]
  • The problem was solved a while ago, but it came back. For instance Mausoleo has no categories within the file, but they are still shown for some unknown reason. --Io Herodotus (talk) 04:01, 16 June 2020 (UTC)[]

Structured data[edit]

Commons asked me to fill structured data, to create claims.commons.wikimedia.org/SuggestedTags

I have a problem. Are the items the same as categories in Wikimedia Commons?

For instance on File:Al-Muttaqin-2020-3.jpg, I would like to add "column" in structured data But the item is understood as "column of a newspaper" and I cannot find "column (architecture)"

We already fill categories. What is the purpose of those claims except on very specific cases ?

--Io Herodotus 12:41, 15 July 2020 (UTC)[]

@Io Herodotus: This is a very contentious issue. Category names are solely in English, and so are not particularly accessible to non-English speakers. They're also not necessarily precise: categories about artists often contain a mix of images of the artist and images by the artist. Structured data is based on Wikidata items, which are translatable and often have many translations, and there are enough properties to make fine distinctions about the relationship between the image and some items.
In your specific case: If you type "Q4817" into the depicts box, the right kind of column will appear. This is because "Q4817" is the Wikidata identifier. If you ever run into this problem in the future, you can find the Wikipedia page for the concept you're trying to add, then click "Wikidata item" on the sidebar. The ID will appear in the header of that page. Vahurzpu (talk) 14:32, 15 July 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Also note: adding structured data is not a substitute for adding categories. One of the reasons this is, as Vahurzpu put it, "contentious" is that a second system ("depicts" via structured data) was added, largely paralleling categories, but independent of it. - Jmabel ! talk 15:22, 15 July 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Thank you for your answers. This seems complicated. I don't know how the search engine works, with those statements or with categories or both. Very often it doesn't find what I'm looking for, when I click on something I would like to open it writes "haswbstatement:P180=Q(...)". But that's probably another question. --Io Herodotus 15:48, 15 July 2020 (UTC)[]
  • @Io Herodotus: better search for media is in the works, with the first round of prototyping finished up and a new round to begin early next month. You can keep an eye on that page and the talk page for immediate updates on the project. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:14, 15 July 2020 (UTC)[]
  • I don't know what information to enter.
    Let's talk about a bridge for instance
    What to enter?
    just bridge
    category with the name of the bridge
    transport
    country
    What precision is needed ???--Io Herodotus 12:06, 16 July 2020 (UTC)[]
If not already done you should read COM:DEPICTS maybe some of your questions are answered there. Current policy is most precise statement what in most cases will be the same as the category. For many information there are specific properties for. Like e.g. country (P17), located in the administrative territorial entity (P131), location (P276) or located in protected area (P3018). --GPSLeo (talk) 13:23, 16 July 2020 (UTC)[]
If statements are the same as categories, a bot could very well do that. --Io Herodotus 04:24, 17 July 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Several bots do that — all those I know of remove categorization that is in wikitext of a page when it is equivalent to what is in Wikidata. -- Tuválkin 14:11, 17 July 2020 (UTC)[]
  • makes it sound that the contention behind these two models is that the Wikidata mechanism is label-indenpendent and thus can be multilingual, while the wikitext-based Commons categories are hardcoded (usually in English). Well, to make a long story short, it is very much not the issue. -- Tuválkin 06:55, 17 July 2020 (UTC)[]
    • Fair point. That was more responding to "We already fill categories. What is the purpose of those claims except on very specific cases?", which as far as I can tell is one of the criticisms of the system. Vahurzpu (talk) 13:45, 17 July 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Sure. Like I said, long story short. -- Tuválkin 14:11, 17 July 2020 (UTC)[]

The Parthenon[edit]

Hello George

Sorry to bother again. This file here should be a picture of an element of the Parthenon. I really don't see anything like this on today's building. Do you think this is correct? Io Herodotus 08:22, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Greetings Io Herodotus. You do not bother me at all. I know where this is. I have taken several pictures of the Parthenon from that particular spot. This fragment lies opposite the West Facade of the Parthenon. If I recall correctly it used to be part of the temple. However, I am going to go there tomorrow to verify it to take a picture of it. In the meantime, please check this out. "File:The interior of the Temple of Hephaestus on June 27, 2020.jpg" This is a picture I took from another Doric temple, the Temple of Hephaestus in the Ancient Agora of Athens. Zoom in the picture and notice the roof between the four Doric columns. I think the fragment in your picture is from the roof of the Parthenon (that is not the proper term to describe it, though) which was blown up in the 17th century. What I do not recall also is if this is part of the original temple or it was made after a similar piece found near the temple. Tomorrow I will be able to give you more details.

Thank you for your answer, it's strange nobody ever took that picture since that time. I hope they will put it back where it belongs

Someone, who probably worked there, took those pics:

column Where was this picture taken from? Probably the interior

Angle Where was this picture taken from?

South side Somebody was able to jump up there

Regards --Io Herodotus (talk) 07:24, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Greetings, Io Herodotus, once again. I have news. Today I climbed the Rock and photographed the slabs. I will upload the photos to Wikimedia later during the day and I will send you with a new message the names of the files. As I told you yesterday these slabs have been placed opposite the West Facade of the Parthenon. According to the guard they are modern copies of the originals used in previous restorations but removed during the current one because the archaeologists think they are dated. They have not decided yet if they are going to resuse them or not. This is what the guard told me. I checked all the site markers on the Rock and I was not able to find any picture of the slabs. The guard was unable to date them either. The process of restoring the Acropolis is a neverending one. What you see in the pictures you show me most probably does not exist anymore. I mean most of these pieces may have been relocated. I am talking about the decoration and not the columns. These are two pictures of site markers I took which you may find useful. They will give you an idea of the nature of the restoration process througout the last decades: "File:The site marker about the restoration of the Parthenon on September 13, 2020.jpg" "File:The site marker about the first restorations of the monuments on the Athenian acropolis on September 13, 2020.jpg". The reason why nobody has photographed these slabs is because from the moment they were removed from the monument, were treated with contempt by the visitors who tend to focus their photography on the monuments themselves and not the surrounding area. As for the last three pictures you showed me I can only make assumptions but only for the first and the third. These are from the Parthenon. I think they were taken from the scaffolding in place back then. The mountain you see in the distance of the third picture is Hymettus. As for the second one it can be from anywhere but if it is from the Parthenon you can be sure that these fragments have all been removed and replaced as you will read on the site markers I sent you. In a few hours I will send you the pictures of the slabs. Best regards.

P.S. These are the pictures: "File:West Facade of the Parthenon on September 20, 2020.jpg" "File:Architectural elements from the restoration of the Parthenon on September 20, 2020.jpg" "File:Marble slabs from the Parthenon on the Acropolis, 20 September 2020.jpg" "File:Marble slabs from the Parthenon on September 20, 2020.jpg"

Thnak you very much for your explanations. I have created a category for the slabs.

Concerning the south side, there is a capital on the ground and 3 columns remain to be completed. Is there a plan to restore it, like they did for the north side? Io Herodotus 09:30, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

Always a pleasure. I am glad I was able to help. I will visit again the Acropolis on September 29. I am going to photograph the south side even though is not that easy since it is full of kiosks and containers. I will definitely try to find out what are their plans for this side even though it depends on the mood of the guard on duty or the engineers I may come across. I will message you as soon as I have news. Best regards.

George E. Koronaios

@Io Herodotus:Greetings, Io Herodotus. Yesterday I revisited the Acropolis because I realized I had forgotten to photograph a site marker I was very interested in. I had the chance to talk with 3 archaeologists. They told me that in regards to the south side of the Parthenon they intend to restore the sekos. Eventually they will fully restore the temple, however, this is not something which is going to happen anytime soon. Personally, I do not expect any of us to live long enough to see this. I took this photograph of the north side (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_restoration_process_of_the_Parthenon_on_September_25,_2020.jpg). The people you see talking in a circle are engineers and archaeologists. They had placed a plan of the temple on the ground but I did not have the chance to ask them anything because they looked very busy. I took several other pictures of the south side which I am going to upload gradually during the next few days which you may find useful. So long as I have the physical strength, the time, and the money I will be keeping a photographic record of the whole process. Best regards.

George E. Koronaios

Thank you very very much. Personnaly I would think they should add copies of the metopes on the South side, but it's only an ignorant's wish. They built it in ten years... But to restore it a bit more difficult. Io Herodotus

Always a pleasure! I remember long ago when I read The Knights by Aristophanes. Paphlagon (Cleon the demagogue) threatens his opponent that he is going to put him in charge of an old trireme which in order to repair it he will need more money than if he built a new one. Eventually, they will restore everything but I do not think any of us will be around to appreciate the final result. By the way, whenever you need pictures or an update on any archaeological site in Athens do not hesitate to ask. I do this as a hobby and I really enjoy it. This also apply to any archaeological site within Attica but this might take a little longer since I will have to schedule and excursion and also to take into consideration possible quarantines within my municipality etc.

Temple of Artemis Agrotera[edit]

There was a small temple in Athens, I have created Category:Theorical anastylosis of the Temple of Artemis Agrotera about it and I'm not sure if those drawings refer to that very temple as they have little informations on the descriptions. As I was writing, I just realized you took a picture of what is left today! I understand the river Ilissus has almost desappeared. Best wishes again and thank you for the news on the Parthenon. --Io Herodotus 03:34, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Greetings again, Laurent :-). I would like to add something in regards to River Ilissos. The river still exists but it flows under the streets and avenues passing over the old riverbed. A decision was made in the time of my grandparents by the authorities to turn the old river into a sewer because the locals used to throw all kinds of garbage in the river which in the warm months of summer became a threat to public health. Both ancient rivers (Ilisos and Cephissus) still exist but shared the same faith. Unlike Ilissos, however, Cephissus in certain areas is still open, has water that is visible and during the rainy months of the year, the stream becomes very violent. As for the Temple of Artemis Agrotera, I am going to photograph again the site in a few days. It is closed to the public but I cannot be sure whether that is because there is an excavation underway or because there are no funds currently available for the partial restoration of the temple. I am adding to this message two links from YouTube. They are both from a Greek channel dedicated to the exploration of the underground rivers of Attica. The first one is about Ilissos while the second one is about Cephissus. It is a sad sight but the team managed to make these recordings because it was not a period with heavy rains. Otherwise, these tunnels would be full of water. Mount Hymettus is still in place and all its water passes under Attica until it reaches the sea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWI2hprUiDc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfQLrXhV2MM&t=855s

Category[edit]

Category:The Parthenon in 1853 has the special category (on the bottom of the page) Category:The Acropolis in 1853, but when I click on it, it says "There are no pages or files in this category". --Io Herodotus 09:27, 26 February 2021 (UTC)[]

@Io Herodotus: I null edited the former, fixing the latter. A back end process should have gotten to it eventually.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 12:47, 26 February 2021 (UTC)[]
@Jeff G.: Thank you. Why does it happen ? How do you fix it ? It happens again to Category:The Acropolis in 1916 Category:The Acropolis in 1923 and probably much more. Perhaps I should wait for the back end process, how long does it take for that ? --Io Herodotus 15:02, 26 February 2021 (UTC)[]
@Io Herodotus: You used Template:ParthenonYear in Category:The Parthenon in 1853 in this edit 10:33, 14 February 2020 (UTC). You created Category:The Acropolis in 1853 in this edit 09:19, 26 February 2021‎ (UTC). You started this section 8 minutes later. Making sure that pages are currently categorized by templates, and that the corresponding categories show them, appear to be background processes with low priorities that sit in job queues until the required resources are available. Once the changes happen at the master database for a project, they then have to be propagated to all the slaves, and then the cached results have to expire. All that takes time. You can increase the speed dramatically by null or content editing the source page once you have created the target page.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 05:44, 27 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Search engine[edit]

I hate that stupid search engine ! Often it gives that result "haswbstatement:P180=something something" which means nothing to me. I hope it will be improved, one day. Wikimedia Commons deserves something better. --Io Herodotus 13:34, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

See Special:MediaSearch. Zoozaz1 21:05, 18 March 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you. This one works well. Why don't they change it ? Io Herodotus
Hi I'm glad you like the new search experience! We are planning to make Special:MediaSearch the default search landing page starting with anonymous/not-logged-in users first at the end of March, and then moving to logged-in users at the end of April as long as no blockers arise. You can read more about it in the release announcement here. CBogen (WMF) 13:35, 19 March 2021 (UTC)
