Potentially undesirable edits[edit]

Take a look When editing out images from infoboxes (e.g. here), the Commons Delinker leaves caption information that appears in the infobox implying that there is an image. You may want to resolve this. If you would like to respond to me, please do so on my talk on the English Wikipedia. Koavf (talk) 01:17, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

I think the best solution is to change the template, so it can handle an empty image parameter. Cheers! Siebrand 11:52, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I think the template is already handling the problem by showing parts of the tag that would not display if the image were present. The purpose is to highlight to the editor, Zariane, that the edit was not complete: s/he has left behind some information which suggests an image should be here. Editors are supposed to take a glance at the results of their edits. The problem in this case is human error, and the software is doing its best to point it out. --99.226.159.95 02:13, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Re: Template:Lang-mp[edit]

Yes, we no longer track protected templates through that template since there was recently a huge increase in template namespace protection. As an alternative we use the more informative {{permprot}} on talk pages to inform users on how to make {{editprotected}} requests. And since many of the templates which contain the now (somewhat) deprecated template are heavily used, removing them has been a gradual process. Rocket000 (talk) 09:18, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. I notice that you have uploaded a new image and at the same time replaced an older one. I think you should know that this is only allowed when the two images are almost exactly alike. Here in Commons we would like to host as many different, useful versions as possible for Wikimedia projects to choose from. I have restored your image to an older version, but I hope you will upload your fine image with another name. Thank you, and happy editing! Cecil (talk) 23:31, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, had not seen your post on my page. You have changed several images in a way not intended by the original author without a consens, even going so far as creating duplicates, since for one of them your version was already on Commons under a different name. You also removed text of an official picture made by the CIA. If you don't like their descriptions tell them, but don't just counterfeit it (people would think it was made that way by CIA while in fact in wasn't) and then upload the file in a really bad quality too. -- Cecil (talk) 00:12, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Please don't tag high-resolution rendered images as {{SVG}}[edit]

Pictures like File:Octahedron.png are fine as they are. They are raytraced renderings of a 3D model and as such very difficult—if not impossible—to faithfully represent as SVG. It may be possible, sure, but takes a huge amount of work and isn't really necessary, especially considering that the source image is of fairly high resolution already. Note, however, that images such as File:Tetrahedral-octahedral honeycomb2.png are fine to tag with {{SVG}} since they are easily representable in their entirety as a vector graphic and are likely to benefit from such a representation (the latter isn't really the case for realistic renders of 3D objects). —Johannes Rössel (talk) 08:33, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

File:Flag-map of Western Sahara.svg[edit]

As clearly indicated, there are four maps, each different:

It is really not constructive or productive to overwrite one of these images with another, so that there are only three different maps... AnonMoos (talk) 02:18, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Whatever -- a decision has been arrived at more or less by consensus that the simplest name "File:Flag-map of Western Sahara.svg" should not endorse the claims of one side or the other, and you trying to change this situation is distinctly unconstructive and unproductive, and pointing to the "original version" changes absolutely nothing. AnonMoos (talk) 02:34, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately, you are greatly mistaken -- the UN map has been in place since "06:10, 5 May 2011". I really don't understand why you have taken it upon yourself to create controversy and stir up trouble where there was none recently... AnonMoos (talk) 02:44, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
In fact, I quote your own words on that point: "it's in use on Wikimedia projects--just changing its contents here changes what displays there"... AnonMoos (talk) 02:47, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

OK, fine (if both Fry1989 and myself are on the same side of an issue -- something which happens rather rarely -- then maybe that's a sign that there's some merit to that position SFriendly.gif)... AnonMoos (talk) 02:49, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Moving files[edit]

Hi Justin Anthony, you are a file mover and recently moved some files.

While on Wikipedia this is not such an issue, at Wikimedia Commons, you have to be very careful. This includes updating the redirects pointing to the file and to replace all its usage globally. Otherwise there is a chance that other articles look damaged/broken (also because MediaWiki, the server software currently has issues with new created file redirects).

I herby ask you to please take care of these tasks in future. You can do this manually using Special:GlobalUsage and Special:WhatLinksHere or you use the service of User:CommonsDelinker/commands (just add the commands to its talk page) or, much easier, you use Move & Replace which will care about all the tasks while moving but requires JavaScript enabled in your browser.

For example Special:GlobalUsage/IMG22586-寶楊路站-3號線月台.JPG and Special:GlobalUsage/IMG12563-上海體育館站-4號線大堂.jpg was not replaced and the files did not display at Chinese Wikipedia.

I am going to update the usage for the files you moved recently (have a script that compiles the list of your moves for me) but in future please take care of this issue.

Have some nice and peaceful Christmas days.

Kind regards -- Rillke(q?) 12:18, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks I didn't think about usage outside of Commons... What about other wikis that use Commons files? There's an extension for that on MediaWiki--would I have to go off-site to fix those problems? Thanks again. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:01, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
We usually care for all Wikimedia wikis but we don't see usage outside the cluster, thus don't update other wikis. This is BTW why file redirects created during moving should work (but currently they don't) and they of course must be updated while moving (Move & Replace also takes care of this task). -- Rillke(q?) 19:10, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Videos with borders[edit]

Hi, please undo your removal of the category "images with borders" I have added to videos with borders. There is no alternate category, and the videos are usually cropped when they are in this one. FunkMonk (talk) 15:35, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Categories I can re-add them, but the category is inaccurate. Why not just make Category:Videos with borders and add it yourself? If you want me to do it, I can. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:44, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Is that the right term to use? FunkMonk (talk) 18:57, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Videos Probably... You could have Category:Media with borders as a container (although it seems unnecessary, as audio can't have a border) and then images and videos inside. Commons doesn't host any other kinds of media, so those are really your only options. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:59, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Alright, what could be another parent category then? In a sense, videos are images, a series of images. FunkMonk (talk) 19:30, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Files with borders ? not sure. --McZusatz (talk) 19:57, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Files with borders That works. Videos aren't images that move anymore than they're audio with stuff to see. Either way, if you want to create this, feel free and if you want me to create it, that's fine, too. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:36, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I can make a cat, but never made a templpate before. FunkMonk (talk) 08:05, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Cat and template Just copy and paste the text from the one template and swap out the relevant words (and note what you did in the edit summary!)--again, I can do this if you'd like or show you how to do it step-by-step. —Justin (koavf)TCM

But where to put the Files with borders Cat? in Category:Multimedia for cleanup?? in Category:Images for cleanup??
Maybe it would be better to create a independent category:videos with borders in Category:Multimedia for cleanup ! --McZusatz (talk) 11:38, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
Categorizing Just place the Media... one where the images one is now and make Images with borders and Videos with borders is child categories. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:35, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
So you would propose a rename of category:images for cleanup to category:media for cleanup and then merge the two contents? --McZusatz (talk) 20:08, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
Sure That's not what I was trying to say, but that makes sense, too. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:10, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, what did you wanted to say in first place. I think I did not understand. (Hint: I created category:Videos with borders in the meantime) --McZusatz (talk) 12:37, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
Parent I meant that Media... would be a parent category that would include Images... and Video... But, as you pointed out, there will only ever be two subcategories, so a container may not really be necessary. If you need/want any help with any of this, let me know. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:22, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
So do you think it is fine the way it is now? (Category:Videos with borders) --McZusatz (talk) 18:27, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
Looks good to me! FunkMonk (talk) 18:30, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
I agree Totally fine. Did you make a template as well? —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:32, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
✓ Done.--McZusatz (talk) 20:32, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

No Neutral WP:RS call the Moroccan Wall a Separation barrier[edit]

After I removed Category:Separation barriers from Category:Moroccan Wall as being a "WP:OR/POV neologism category" you reverted it writing (Rv. If you think the category should be deleted, nomimate it)

I wasn't clear that it was WP:OR/Neogologis for that wall. It obviously applies to barriers/walls/etc. in Israel where hundreds of WP:RS use the phrase, but in working on the relevant Wikipedia article I found no sources that do so for the Moroccan wall, or just about anything else, except usually in a pejorative fashion. Therefore that Moroccan Wall does not belong in Category:Separation barriers. Carolmooredc (talk) 04:57, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Neutrality Pejoratives are not inherently incorrect or inaccurate: many (most?) references to the Israeli separation fence/barrier/wall with the West Bank is frequently referred to in pejorative terms. The problem is whether or not it is accurate to call the Moroccan berm a "separation barrier". I'm curious as to why you think it's not, as it serves as the dividing line between occupied Western Sahara and the SADR-controlled Free Zone. —Justin (koavf)TCM 05:00, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
Ok, did some research and I see aside from obvious nonsense (categorizing a frog as a horse for example), Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2012/12#No_Original_Research original research is not applied quite the same way. So people will have to go to the article to find out that no neutral WP:RS calls the Moroccan Wall a separation barrier. Carolmooredc (talk) 15:11, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
Research Three clicks on Google Scholar showed me this. —Justin (koavf)TCM 15:20, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
Israeli advocacy organizations trying to apply "separation barrier" to every wall or fence every built to condone their own controversial use of such a wall would not be considered reliable in most article and/or the POV would have to be identified as not to mislead readers. Carolmooredc (talk) 15:29, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
Sources' I'm confused: are you saying that this source is not reliable when it comes to claims about Western Sahara? —Justin (koavf)TCM 15:30, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
In a wikipedia article it would have to be identified so that its biases would be obvious. Wiki commons has a much lower standard. Carolmooredc (talk) 16:52, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
Standards If that's the case, then doesn't that make it easier to rely on it for categorization? —Justin (koavf)TCM 16:53, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
That's the point I was making in second posting; after investigating further I saw that Commons is not that restrictive with references and about "original research" and doesn't even require refs except in unusual cases or, it seems, for drawing maps, graphs, etc. from sources that are copyrighted. Avoiding such copyright restrictions being one of the main reasons. Common sense seems to rule. Carolmooredc (talk) 17:24, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Carol is not here to build an encyclopedia. She is a fringe politician who ran for the Libertarian Party on an anti-Semitic platform. See http://carolmoorereport.blogspot.com/2012/11/israelis-bombing-to-support-stolen-land.html for anti-Semitic blogs clearly demonstrating Carol is only here to promote a Pallywood agenda. Here are some racist quotes of her:

I then traveled over to “Wiki, Women and Museums” which to my dismay featured discussions of Israeli museums. I have a feeling most Israeli museums distort history to justify Israel’s land grabbing expansionist policies, human rights abuses, aggressive Israel lobbies in a number of countries, etc. I always say that Palestinians are the only people who are lied about more than women. Don’t get me started. I was on my best behavior and only wore a low key “fashion kefiyah” around my waist.

[1]

Why is AnonIp ‎68.6.227.26 adding barely relevant material about women (pregnant or not) disguising themselves as suicide bombers, except to once again blame Palestinians for all the malnutrition and deaths of their children? This is wikipedia, not the Israeli Defense Forces website. I reverted the first occasion where you inserted material in the middle of of sourced info, in a very POV way that interferred with proper referencing. And then you added similar opinions from an American politician? Not very WP:RS. I wish I had time to clean this article up and properly balance it with indoctrination of Israeli children into historical inaccuracies, hatred and supremacy. When I have time to clean it up I will and then take it to a noticeboard where NPOV editors will surely agree with the way the article is being abused. A properly ref'd and placed mention of the Israeli excuses for these deaths might be permitted but both of these were just offensive.

@Cerevisae: I'd be happy to help but I'm pretty ignorant on the topic. Do you want to IM maybe? Or e-mail me? —Justin (koavf)TCM 03:29, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your willingness to help. I have sent a picture to you last Friday. Regards. Cerevisae (talk) 08:47, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Flag of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.svg[edit]

This flag is the flag of Western Sahara, which is one of the countries that is regonized only by 84 countries, the rest doesn't recognized Western Sahara as a sovereign state and is part of Morocco. Because of this reason, it is a partly-recognized state. 174.113.217.132 19:58, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

OTRS ticket for Pulchrism[edit]

Can you add the OTRS ticket number to File:Pulchrism - Championing Beauty as the Purpose of Art.pdf? The auto-reply when you send an email to OTRS will include the ticket number. You'll need to use the {{OP}} template to add the OTRS status (template needs to be subst'd).

I'm also concerned about the work's overall copyright status. Did the second copyright holder, Carpophage Press, also release it under CC-BY-4.0? Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 16:36, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

@Mukkakukaku: The OTRS ticket is unnecessary as the author has declared it on his site now. The press is a vanity press owned and run by the creator of the work. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:32, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Fair enough, though we don't transcribe vanity press as a rule on Wikisource. The copyright page of the PDF clearly says © Carpophage Press, which indicates they have a stake in it as well, so the point about the publisher's permission stands. If the publisher also has copyright, the author alone cannot release the work as CC-by-4.0, as far as I know. --Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 07:49, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Justin, just wanted to let you know that I responded to your post on my talk page. --Yarnalgo (talk) 03:04, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Responded again. --Yarnalgo (talk) 21:19, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Damaged template[edit]

Hi Koavf, you made the template {{Countries of Europe}} faulty by this your edit which caused that the template didn't detect an display existing corresponding links to the "Czech Republic". If you check the situation before the edit, you can notice that the two links are not identic (one of them links to "Czechia" links, the second one to the "Czech Republic" links) and as you can read in related discussions, the alternative links in the templates is the most effective way how to treat the temporary situation that the general consensus to prefer timeless geographical names of countries to the political names of states is a bit blocked in case of Czechia. --ŠJů (talk) 20:47, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

@ŠJů: Where and why are we using two different English names for the same state? —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:57, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

:@ŠJů: Note also that your edit broke the display for "the Czech Republic". —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:58, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

@Koavf: See Template talk:Countries of Europe#CZ/CZR for temporary transitional disunity and Commons:Categories for discussion/2016/12/Category:History of Czechia for more information. The first name is a geographical name of the country, the second name is the political name of the current state. Generally, for most of countries, the timeless geographical names of countries are prefered to the full political names of specific state forms (kingdoms, republics etc.). The official geographical name of Czechia is problematic because it is not very known among uneducated people, however the political name of the Czech Republic is quite unusable for pre-1969 periods of Czechia. The most problematic categories (especially related to pre-1969 times and items) were renamed to the geographical names already, but the consensus to unify the name is not achievable yet.
(Btw. could you unify your nickname? It's a bit confusing when you are displayed as "Koavf" in page history lists but your signature is "Justin".). --ŠJů (talk) 21:20, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

A Love Supreme[edit]

Hi, please do not create cross-namespace redirects. Jcb (talk) 16:35, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

@Jcb: Is there a policy on this? Cross-namespace redirects are very useful for searching and will help with hundreds of incoming links. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:11, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
Commons:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion#General_reasons - general reason 2 - Jcb (talk) 19:12, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
@Jcb: But that's precisely what I'm saying: this isn't an implausible redirect. What is implausible about this? Actual incoming links from Wikipedia go to the main namespace and since there are far less galleries than there are categories, it is both helpful and solves an existing problem. I am asking you about cross-namespace redirects in particular: is there some policy about those? I think it's not at all clear that something being cross-namespace is inherently implausible. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:02, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
You seem to missread the sentence. I will cut it in peaces for you. Deletion reason G2 is valid for:
  1. Page is an unused and implausible redirect,
  2. a redirect that is dependent on deleted or non-existent content.
  3. Unused talkpage redirects that was created as a result of a page move,
  4. cross-namespace redirects.
Links from Wikipedia actually almost always link to categories rather than galleries. Jcb (talk) 20:07, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
@Jcb: I did in fact, misread it—that was simple on another line in my browser and I saw it as a talk page for a cross-namespace redirect that is deleted. And yes, most Wikipedia links are proper but there are certainly dozens or hundreds (thousands?) which aren't. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:24, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

@Jcb: And I should thank you for your patience and guidance. Sorry for that. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:32, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

No problem, many users missread the often difficult to understand long sentences of our policies. About the bad links from Wikipedia, yes there is in issue there. I also have seen links from Wikipedia to non-existing Commons categories. Maybe somebody could write a tool to detect bad links from Wikipedia to Commons, but that is outside my field of knowledge.

Categories[edit]

Hi, Justin. I saw your question to a user about categorization. I hope you will have a constructive, satisfactory answer. I am sick and tired of trying to communicate with some colleagues -those who never accept their mistakes and do not interact with others- here. If you still have energies in that search of interaction and cooperation, maybe you can also have a look at this categorization, on a category opened for just one file... Cheers and many thanks for all your contributions. --E4024 (talk) 15:07, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

@E4024: Some of those were redundant categories, so I removed them. I'm a lot more active on other WMF projects but sometimes when I come to Commons, it's bewildering. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:40, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Correction requests[edit]

Hello, Koavf.

There are mistakes in these maps which have not been undone. Would you correct them?

In both File:Christian States.svg and File:State Religions.svg, El Salvador is wrongly included, which needs to be removed because it doesn't have a state religion. Article 26 of the Constitution of El Salvador does not declare the Catholic Church as a state religion: "The juridical personality of the Catholic Church is recognized. The other churches may obtain recognition of their personality in conformity with the law". Source: http://confinder.richmond.edu/admin/docs/ElSalvador1983English.pdf

In File:Map of state religions.svg, Georgia is wrongly included, which needs to be removed because it doesn't have a state religion. Section 1 of Article 9 of the Constitution of Georgia does not declare the Georgian Orthodox Church as a state religion: "The state shall declare complete freedom of belief and religion, as well as shall recognise the special role of the Apostle Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Georgia in the history of Georgia and its independence from the state." Source: http://www.parliament.ge/files/68_1944_951190_CONSTIT_27_12.06.pdf

In File:Paises con mayoría cristiana.svg Nakchivan needs to be painted in pink, because it is an exclave of Azerbaijan, and like Azerbaijan as a whole, Nakchivan doesn't have a Christian majority.

@Artoxx: No problem--I can do this. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:27, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Can you actually update these four maps, because personally I am "illiterate" when it comes to SVG maps. I have no knowledge how to edit and upload SVG files. Artoxx (talk) 13:55, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
@Artoxx: I will--I just got busy yesterday. I downloaded them and I'm working on a new computer, so I had to download my standard SVG editor. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:05, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
