Category Arcade[edit]

Hi, please observe: a cloister is not an arcade! --Wuselig (talk) 18:06, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Oops, I was using the secondary english definition of cloister, meaning "monastery", and assumed that those images were arcades in a monastery. My mistake. Mindmatrix (talk) 18:11, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
arcade: vaulted passageway suported by colums. The difference to most cloisters is that the space between the colums there is usually not open. In German there is a differentiation between "Arkade" and "Laubengang" which are both translated into English as arcade. The "Laubengang" does not have to be open between the colums, but that is because the "Laubengang" is usually one story off the ground. --Wuselig (talk) 20:52, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Your "refine category" edits[edit]

Thank you for your precise categorization of the species in my Nature pics. But please don't do the same with my user categories (like here, it took me a lot of (manual) work to organize my galleries! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 14:41, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

In that particular edit, I retained your user category. I think I may have inadvertently deleted a category in a few rare occasions. If so, my apologies. (Though wouldn't it be better to structure your categories so that Category:Quality images by Alvesgaspar is a sub-category of Category:Photos by Alvesgaspar, and likewise for your other categories? I do see you have a few images that are not photos in that category, so perhaps splitting that up may be useful. Just a thought.) Anyway, I'll certainly ensure that I don't accidentally delete your user categories, and I'm sorry if I've created extra work for you. Mindmatrix (talk) 14:54, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
By the way, I can understand why you undid this revision (and this one too), in which I deleted one of your user categories, but why undo this and this? In the latter two, I retained your user categories, and simply refined the species category. (I also moved them to the bottom.) Just curious. Mindmatrix (talk) 15:43, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Is there a difference between road signs and street signs?[edit]

I was moving this and this over to Category:Road signs in Toronto, when it occurred to me that there might actually be a distinction between road signs and street signs. I would have thought not, although if I had to guess I'd say street signs indicate the name of the street or road, and road signs provide other directions to traffic. Is there a meaningful distinction, or do we simply have two (almost) duplicate category trees? I'd say the latter, but am not sure. --skeezix1000 (talk) 17:53, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Personally, I agree with you distinction, but I'm not sure others would. I had created Category:Street signs in Canada as a temporary intermediary between Category:Street signs by country at one end, and Category:Road signs in Toronto and Category:Road signs in Canada on the other. There's an intermingling of terms here that's confusing and should be resolved. For the record, English WP uses the term Traffic sign, though entries in en:Category:Traffic signs include articles such as en:Road signs in Norway. We should probably have a broader discussion about this, and public signage in general, uh, somewhere. Perhaps the Village Pump here and on WP? Mindmatrix (talk) 13:29, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Events by year vs. Establishments by year[edit]

hi Mindmatrix,

While I have created templates to categorize establishments by year I have realized that you have categorized railway stations by opening date and when you create a new category like 1871 establishments you are used to categorize it to 1871 events. But there are just a few subcategories in "events by year" so It will make much trouble to change my template in the way tat any establishment will be categorized automatically as "event", theoretically from 3.000 BC up to today. I just want to let you know this, and that you must not think I am boycotting your work. Once, when every year up from the 19th century will have its subcategory "events" its a 1/2 minute work to create another template which will categorize the establishments as events... --anro (talk) 20:55, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

I have started to create templates for Railway stations, see Category:Railway stations opened in 1910 ff (the template is Template:Railcat) --anro (talk) 00:41, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
I have no problem with using a template to categorize them. However, wouldn't it make more sense to have the template with parameters for century, decade, and year, instead of a three-digit decade such as "191" for 1910s? That is, instead of {{railcat|191|0|1909|1920}}, shouldn't we use {{railcat|19|1|0|1909|1920}}? I think the latter would make it easier to categorize by decade, when that need arises, without any further changes. (It would need the use of switches in the template, of course.) Mindmatrix (talk) 02:01, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Here is the template for decades: Template:RailwaystationsInDecade, it is used for categories like Railway stations opened in the 1920s, a template for centuries is actually superfluous, coz there are just three with railways... --anro (talk) 13:33, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
On a slightly related point, which I mentioned to Anro this morning, I'm not sure that these railway categories belong in the establishments category tree to begin with -- there is a separate category tree that organizes buildings by completion date. I've raised the issue at Commons:Village pump#Establishments vs. Buildings category trees to get some feedback, including both your two cents. --skeezix1000 (talk) 19:12, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Cool[edit]

This is interesting! --Skeezix1000 (talk) 18:04, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Heh - I didn't even notice the other file. I've been uploading quite a few files from flickr, but about half the Toronto-related CC pics I find have (ahem) already been uploaded. Mindmatrix (talk) 18:16, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
I thought that tree looked familiar.

Ahem, indeed. But mostly only those in the past year or two or so (I go onto Flickr about once a week and download anything that seems interesting - or, more often than not, that I have time to do). There are thousands upon thousands still to be uploaded. Delighted, by the way, that you are taking the time to recognize some of the photographers on Flickr who release their images through CC. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 18:24, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I figure they deserve the credit; a useful side-effect is that it also makes it easier to determine if a file has already been uploaded, as the upload tool doesn't catch (or warn about) all duplicates. Mindmatrix (talk) 19:50, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

HotCat and MW 1.15[edit]

It shouldn't fail on MW 1.15, the dependency on wgNamespaceIds should be optional. If it isn't, that's a bug in HotCat. Is your wiki publicly accessible, so that I could go take a look? Lupo 19:02, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

The error is fixed now. Any version of our MediaWiki:Gadget-HotCat.js since 07:20, 10 July 2010 (UTC) should also work if wgNamespaceIds is not present. (There was a simple typo, "unknown" instead of "undefined".) Lupo 07:26, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

For categorizing my pictures in a less lazy way than me :) Léna (talk) 18:43, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm just searching various categories to find images not yet included in those categories. Some have a surprising number of results. Mindmatrix 18:47, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Tool[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you care to add / edit / remove categories from the files. Very often it is tedious to change the categories to many files in the same category. In these cases comes to your rescue the tool "Visual File Change". It allows you for example to edit / add categories to many files in the same category in one minute. Help:VisualFileChange.js It's great like you! :) Raoli ✉ (talk) 02:15, 29 November 2012 (UTC)


I'll check it out, though I'm already using HotCat coupled with the "search not in category" tool seem to make effective partners for my use. Mindmatrix 02:21, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

About the categorization of stamps by colors.[edit]

Hello, Mindmatrix!

I want to note that from the strictly philatelic point of view the stamps like this or this are not "yellow" or "blue". Catalogues describe them as "multicoloured". The most of today’s offset stamps are multicoloured (there are rather rare exceptions, though). As a rule, catalogues specify the colours of a stamp if it is printed in 1 or in 2 colour(s) (and sometimes, in 3 colours). All other stamps are "multicoloured".

For example:

The mentioned stamp is described as "multicoloured", though the blue colour is really dominant. The stamp with Lenin is multicoloured, too, in spite of the wide yellow frame.

Best wishes and every success in your creative work at Wiki.

Dmitry Ivanov (talk) 22:19, 12 January 2013 (UTC) :-)

Thanks for the message. For the record, I'm not sorting stamps according to philatelic colour definitions. I'm sorting them by the most prominent colour, as a casual visitor to Commons would expect. Using strict philatelic sorting would result in awfully large Bicoloured stamps and Multicoloured stamps categories, and small categories for all other colours, so I don't think that would be useful. If you disagree with this, please let me know, and we can discuss it to find a better solution. Mindmatrix 22:34, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
As of me, I do not attach special importance to the categorization of the stamps by colours, and I am not ready to be engaged in it. I think the present sorting ("unprofessional", so to say:-) has its "right to life", so I have no objection. May be, another philatelist, stricter and more consistent, would disagree with this, and some arguments are possible in future. Best regards, Dmitry Ivanov (talk) 23:24, 12 January 2013 (UTC).

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Why this edit?[edit]

https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Casson_Trenor_01.jpg&diff=104233583&oldid=55433715: he's a restaurateur who is (as the description says) a leading advocate for sustainable sushi. So why remove Category:Sushi? - Jmabel ! talk 00:51, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

I recently created Category:Sushi chefs that may be more suitable; if he's not a sushi chef, perhaps a more appropriate category can be created. (I think the primary category should include only media about the food itself, though most people don't seem to bother creating sub-categories for people related to a product for many of the categories I've come across.) Mindmatrix 03:53, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I understand what you are trying to do. I don't think he's a chef; he's a restaurateur, writer, and activist. He's certainly a person associated with sushi, and there ought to be some connection between him and that category. I'd be perfectly glad to see the connection made some other way, but I think what was there before is better than eliminating it entirely. - Jmabel ! talk 04:30, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

YRT Categories[edit]

Have you seen Category:Bus rapid transit in York Region? I noticed you were cleaning up YRT. Secondarywaltz (talk) 20:29, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Yeah. I was going to invert that category tree at some point, as Viva is a type of bus rapid transit system, instead of "Bus rapid transit in York Region" being a type of Viva. There's also the YRT/Viva joint operation to deal with, but I'm not getting into that one. Mindmatrix 22:53, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Toronto Public Library locations map[edit]

I've downloaded the most recent kml file from the City of Toronto website, I'll upload the map. I didn't see anything different, but I think they've added one extra location... Oaktree b (talk) 03:20, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
