CIMSS images[edit]

Hi Nilfanion,

I was wondering if the information you provided at Template talk:UWiscCIMSS some time ago is still valid. The institution's copyright notice only seems to permit noncommercial use with attribution, which ordinarily would lead me to believe that many of the images populating Category:University of Wisconsin CIMSS images are not free for our purposes. Am I simply overlooking something that should be obvious? –Juliancolton | Talk 00:46, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

@Juliancolton: I no longer have OTRS access, so cannot review the ticket. My reading of the info I left is "most of our pictures are really the government's, so they are PD anyway. Help yourself". With regards to their current disclaimer, that's an odd one - and its a disclaimer not a copyright notice. In particular it permits commercial use under the same conditions as non-commerical use. That is because the only difference is a request for a donation. A request isn't an obligation, so you can use commercially without payment.--Nilfanion (talk) 17:07, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

New ward map[edit]

Hello Nilfanion, the wards have changed for the upcoming elections in Kingston upon Hull, would you be able to produce a new ward map to use in place of File:Kingston upon Hull UK ward map 2010 (blank).svg. Thanks. Keith D (talk) 23:39, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

I will try to run through all the changes since my last sweep in the next couple of days. I'll make sure Hull is done as a high priority (probably tomorrow).--Nilfanion (talk) 21:15, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, though unsure how to colour it as the full council is being elected rather than 1 for each ward as usual. Keith D (talk) 22:52, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Uploaded to File:Kingston upon Hull UK ward map 2018 (blank).svg. There are a few options for colouring which boil down into two options:
  1. Just show the party with majority of councillors for the ward (or no overall control)
  2. Attempt to show the breakdown. w:User:Nilfanon/Elections demonstrates one approach - using stripes of appropriate thickness and colour.--Nilfanion (talk) 18:42, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Cross-namespace redirects[edit]

We have had a guideline allowing the use of cross-namespace redirects from gallery page names to the equivalent category for some time, but now it has been deleted without discussion [1]. On the other hand we have a policy for speedy deletion of these redirects. I wanted to understand how this discrepancy arose [2]. I searched the archives for Commons talk:Criteria for speedy deletion for any discussion that resulted in the adoption of this policy, but I didn't find it. Is this the wrong place to look? I did find a comment you made concerning this issue, so I thought you might be able to help. --Robert.Allen (talk) 22:21, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
