Hello, Lobsterthermidor!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Nutwell[edit]

There is only one Nutwell on the east bank of the Exe Estuary - namely Nutwell Court in Woodbury CP. I don't quite get why you tried to separate this one concept in two and certainly see no need for BLOCK CAPITALS to say its ambiguous when it isn't! I've redirected Nutwell, Lympstone to Nutwell, Woodbury as that reflects the reality of the matter.--Nilfanion (talk) 22:18, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

I think you'll find that the two houses are totally different. I know a fair bit about Nutwell Court, Woodbury, rebuilt in 1799 from a mediaeval house, which is NOT the smaller, white, crenellated building in the images remaining in Category:Nutwell, Lympstone, which I know nothing about, except that it is not "Nutwell Court". Apologies for my capitals. (Lobsterthermidor (talk) 20:15, 20 November 2013 (UTC))
Ah I see the issue. Nutwell is an estate, not just the country house at its centre (which is Nutwell Court). There is only the one Nutwell estate - in Woodbury parish between the village of Lympstone and the Marine base. Nutwell, Lympsone, does not exist. The smaller building is The Belvedere, which is within the Nutwell estate. See these records for Nutwell Court, Belvedere and Nutwell Park.
Nutwell, Woodbury, is the overarching name for the entire estate and all buildings within it, if you want to make a distinction between the house and its estate, then Category:Nutwell, Woodbury and Category:Nutwell Court, Woodbury are needed.--Nilfanion (talk) 22:25, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
The confusion has arisen due to the uploader of the photos of the Belvedere naming his/her photos incorrectly as "Nutwell Court". Quite possibly the Belvedere and/or the pub (former "Nutwell Lodge"??) is situated in Lympstone parish, I don't know. It's a large estate and may straddle parish boundaries. The Court is definitely in Woodbury parish, but a long way from the church on the extremity. I think I'll create 3 new sub-cats, more or less as you suggest, all under "Nutwell, Woodbury": "Nutwell Court", "Nutwell Belvedere" & "Nutwell Lodge". I'll check that last name. OK? (Lobsterthermidor (talk) 11:58, 21 November 2013 (UTC))
That makes sense, but its worth mentioning the modern estate is wholly within Woodbury, as can be verified on OS maps. Its possible that we will have photos of the estate - its ponds and parkland - after all. As for the bad file names, I will correct them this evening.--Nilfanion (talk) 12:24, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
Job done, thanks.(Lobsterthermidor (talk) 12:29, 21 November 2013 (UTC))

Country houses[edit]

Hi 3 separate messages, hence 3 separate threads: when creating cat for a country house, please place it at its full name as this avoids any potential ambiguity. eg Category:Mothecombe is a small hamlet, best known for its beach, and is not just the house. Furthermore, the houses are generally best known by the full name.

If you look at well known properties, like Category:Blenheim Palace or Category:Chatsworth House, the main category for the estate is the house's cat, and things in the broader estate like the gardens are a subcat. I'd suggest this is best approach in general, so the structure for Mothecombe House would be: Holbeton (parish) -> Mothecombe (hamlet) -> Mothecombe House (estate) -> Mothecombe House gardens.--Nilfanion (talk) 11:04, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Noted, thanks(Lobsterthermidor (talk) 12:41, 2 July 2014 (UTC))

Plympton[edit]

Plympton St Mary was a large rural CP, and has long been abolished, which covered the land that is now modern Plympton (less St Maurice), plus a large chunk of land now in Sparkwell. The southern area of the parish is now a densely populated urban landscape, and that is best described in modern terms like Woodford, Colebrook and Chaddlewood. To add to the confusion the current ward of Plympton St Mary is much smaller than the former parish, for instance St Mary's church is not in Plympton St Mary ward.

The category scheme reflects the current situation, so I've moved Newnham to Sparkwell. As for Plympton St Mary - I've redirected it to Plympton. Its not a helpful subdivision in the modern urban area, especially with confusion between the former parish and modern ward.

In contrast, Plympton St Maurice is the ancient town, and it still has a distinct identity within the urban area - so Category:Plympton St Maurice is worthwhile.--Nilfanion (talk) 11:04, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

... in heraldry[edit]

Hello - if a category is named "... in heraldry" it means that only coats of arms may be grouped therein. SVG coat of elements shall not be assigned to it as they don't show a shield. Therefore I reverted your categorisations of the merlettes. -- Maxxl² - talk 16:14, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

I don't think you're correct here, I can't see why an heraldic charge can not be included in "... in heraldry" cats when shown on its own not on a shield. It is "used in heraldry" is it not? Are you following some Wikicommons guideline perhaps? The category is not called "... coats of arms ...", in which case I would agree with you.(Lobsterthermidor (talk) 11:12, 5 September 2014 (UTC))
FYI just read the warning at the parent category and pls stop messing up a longtime proven structure. -- Maxxl² - talk 12:31, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Please do not use incivil language. The category was/is in a real mess because it mixes up two totally different heraldic figures: the English martlet and the French merlette. I am trying to disentangle the two varieties, which will not be a simple task. You have misinterpreted the "warning" above, which reads: "WARNING: In this context, when a category says "Category:Xyz in heraldry", it means ...in shield, not ...in crest or something external ornaments". This therefore allows for heraldic elements which usually appear in shields (as opposed to on crests or in supporters or elsewhere) to be shown alone. It does not mean "shields only can appear in this category".(Lobsterthermidor (talk) 12:57, 5 September 2014 (UTC))

chevron[edit]

Ermine spots on chevrons is not same of chevrons Ermine. the first are a charge and a second are fur. (excuse my english) --Chatsam (talk) 20:05, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

Pas de problème, merci. Disagree, chevrons ermine are blazoned "A chevron ermine", not "on a chevron argent X ermine spots". I have never seen the latter as a blazon in an authoritative source. If you can tell me otherwise (French or English heraldry), I will be able to agree with you.(Lobsterthermidor (talk) 20:16, 13 December 2015 (UTC))

Some advice?[edit]

Hello Lobsterthermidor, I just completed illustrating Foster's Some Feudal Coats of Arms, totalling 5,196 arms and variations, from Abehall to Zouche. Would love to get your thoughts on how best to publish them here on the Commons. The illustrations were daunting, but the idea of uploading the files and associated metadata has my head spinning. Best, --R. S. Nourse (talk) 20:02, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Sounds like another great piece of work, congratulations and am looking forward to seeing them! It's not a work I was familiar with, but having found it on archive.org[1], clearly it's a great authority. As to the best way of publishing them here, I would guess that depends on exactly what they are. For example if an illustration of arms or a seal used by a specified person, I would suggest display on that person's wikipedia page, with caption stating "based on drawing of his seal attached to XYZ document, date..., illustrated by Foster...", with blazon. That's clearly a lot of work for so many images. However, you could just upload them several to a page (as for example you did with your rolls of arms images), perhaps in alphabetical order if no more logical order suggests itself, and then add the relevant categories in Category:Coats of arms of families of England. If in high resolution (as with your rolls of arms images), these can then be individually cropped and re-allocated to specific pages by another interested user at some future time (WP is after all a collaborative project). You will at least have delivered your image to a place where it will be seen by persons interested in that family's arms. Your overall category would thus be "Category:Foster's Some Feudal Coats of Arms" which could arguably be a sub-cat of Category:Rolls of arms. I suppose if you want to reduce your work to a minimum, which seems a fair option faced with 5,196 images, you could just upload each page of images with just a reference to the source, a page number if convenient and a link to the archive.org text, then leave it for someone else to pick up the baton. Is that helpful? I'm sure there is a way of uploading such a huge number of images mechanically, for example User:Dcoetzee did so with thousands of portraits in the National Portrait Gallery, London (see for background User:Dcoetzee/NPG legal threat). Perhaps you could ask him how he did it (p.s. you can't now as he's been banned, shame for someone who did such a great job!) or enquire at the Commons:Village pump, where possibly someone with the relevant technical expertise could help you make such a mass upload. Regards, Lobsterthermidor (talk) 14:06, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for this. Great thoughts/advice. I'm going to start exploring all options. Might even see if I can track down Dcoetzee, though he appears to be rather pre-occupied at the moment. Best,--R. S. Nourse (talk) 18:51, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

PNG[edit]

Hi, I've noticed you created a ton of PNG files of arms, using SVG elements. The files should SVG format. Is there a reason you're doing this? Thank you. Wikimandia (talk) 06:57, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Yes, there is a very good reason! It's very easy to create extremely flexible images in Inkscape using a "magic shield" which is basically an excluded shield-shaped window in a slightly larger white square, so chevrons, chiefs, bends, etc can be lowered to bottom when they "stick out" beyond the shield boundaries without having to be made to fit. Using this method they can very easily be adjusted in size, position etc. The completed arrangement is then exported as PNG and is cropped in MS Paint, and turns into a neat useable form, all within the shield boundaries. The resulting PNG quality and definition is excellent for WP commons purposes. Where I do useful original work, such as creating new charges in svg, I do generally upload those in svg format for others to use if they wish, see for example my recent creations File:BarnacleGoose svg element.svg, File:SteyningsArms.svg (my image of a bat), File:MulletFish svg-element.svg, File:Martlet (English) svg element.svg, File:Garb Example.svg, File:RoachFish in heraldry.svg, File:Owl svg Element.svg, etc. Hope that answers your question. By the way, I am a big fan of your work, which I have borrowed many times, always, I hope, properly credited to you!Lobsterthermidor (talk) 02:31, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
