Categories in Grez-Doiceau[edit]

Hello P199 !

Thank you for your work on organizing the files for the category "Grez-Doiceau".  :-) It really helps.

I took the initiative, however, of moving the subcategory "Stampia, Grez-Doiceau" back from "Nature of Grez-Doiceau" to "Grez-Doiceau". The Stampia is a neighborhood of Grez-Doiceau. The category may host in the future some pictures related to the Stampia but unrelated to nature, for example architectural peculiarities or pictures of events happening there. As a subzone of Grez-Doiceau, I felt it would be better to place it directly in the main Grez-Doiceau category. I also added the category "Nature of Grez-Doiceau" to the files of the Stampia category which pertain to it (that is all but one, the one about the little Chapel at the corner of the Rue de la Sainte du Chêne and the Ancien Tracé du Vicinal).

Have a very nice day ! VerboseDreamer (talk) 14:47, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

  • @VerboseDreamer: You are welcome. Can I suggest to take general view photos of the towns? That would make for better additions to WP articles. Regards, P 1 9 9   03:37, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, I guess the lack of them doesn't allow for an accurate picture of what Grez-Doiceau is. My only concern is that such features would contain private houses. I don't really know whether the Belgian laws allow me to take such pictures. Do you know where I can find information about it? Also, I haven't had much free time lately, I guess it'll have to wait a bit. VerboseDreamer (talk) 15:00, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much.  :-) I'll try to take general views of squares and streets then. VerboseDreamer (talk) 17:21, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Categories - lakes of Quebec[edit]

Hello P199 I'm adding a precision for categories when more than one lake of that name exist in the province. For example, There are 14 different "Lac Deschênes" in Quebec. I'm using the "Commission de Toponymie du Québec" website to do this (http://www.toponymie.gouv.qc.ca/ct/). --Cephas (talk) 14:19, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Skinner Bluff[edit]

Hi P199 I had a glance at this picture. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f8/Skinner_Bluff.jpg

From looking at it I think it might actually be the Malcolm Bluff if your vantage point is on the south shore of Colpoy's Bay. Its easy to confuse with Skinner's Bluff which is on the south shore. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ‎216.110.239.69 (talk • contribs) 11:35, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Thank you for noticing this and bringing it to my attention. (How come I never noticed this myself before?) I will rename the file accordingly. Thanks again. --P 1 9 9   16:23, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Admin worden[edit]

Beste P199,

Is het niet wat voor jou om admin te worden? Ik zag dat INC het een tijd terug al gevraagd heeft en toen waren er nog wat twijfels. Ik denk dat je een prima kandidaat bent en als je wilt kan ik je nomineren. En wat betreft de verhitte discussies, er zijn meeeeer dan genoeg niet controversiële adminacties om uit te voeren :). Ik hoop dat je nu we de stap wilt zetten. Natuur12 (talk) 18:32, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Overigens zijn de knopjes ook een goede hulp bij het dagelijkse onderhoudswerk. Natuur12 (talk) 18:33, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
  • @Natuur12: Bedankt voor je vertrouwen in mij as admin. Mijn twijfels zijn niet minder, vooral omdat ik gewoon niet meer tijd aan Commons kan spanderen dan ik nu al doe. Maar ja, dat is geen rede om niet admin te zijn. OK, met 2 endorsements, accepteer ik je nominatie. Maar het is beter om dat proces na het weekend te beginnen (ik zal weinig tijd hebben om alle vragen te beantwoorden in het weekend). -- P 1 9 9   18:40, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Fijn :). Dank zal ik zorgen dat ik aan het eind van het weekend een concepttekst voor de nominatie heb. Als er nog dingen zijn die ik moet vermelden hoor ik het graag. Natuur12 (talk) 18:45, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
      • Bedankt, en tot dan. --P 1 9 9   18:48, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
        • Ik heb een conceptmotivatie geschreven: User:Natuur12/P199. Indien je akkoord bent zal ik hem naar de juiste plek verplaatsen. Desgewenst kan je er nog een eigen motivatie onder zetten. Natuur12 (talk) 20:02, 7 June 2015 (UTC)


Congratulations, Dear Administrator![edit]

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

P199, congratulations! You now have administrator rights on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard an it subpages), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Have a look at the list of Gadgets (on the bottom there are the ones specifically for admins – however, for example the UserMessages are very helpful too).

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons webchat on irc.freenode.net. There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators: #wikimedia-commons-admin webchat.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading. You can find the admin backlog overview at COM:AB.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references.

    • And you made your first f**k up. Welcome :-)
    • You don't speedy delete files that are used over 500+ times, like File:Europeana 1914-1918.png. Especially if it's uploaded by the organization itself. Multichill (talk) 14:59, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
      • Ah sucks! Yes, still need to learn more... --P 1 9 9   15:01, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

А еще дорогой администратор, вас вообще не парит, что данный файл использовался в викиновостях, в отличии от миллионов нигде не используемых File:Афиша Фотовыставки клуба Летний берег.jpg? боле того, он именно в тему статьи. Я вас тоже поздравляю- вы в кругу таких-же... единомышленников. -- Schekinov Alexey Victorovich 21:59, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Portraits by Mikhail Nesterov[edit]

I am seriously disappointed that you did not even try to understand the arguments.--Ymblanter (talk) 16:39, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

  • I tried very hard. But both sides of the argument couldn't agree, so precautionary principle prevails. --P 1 9 9   16:46, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
    Well, do you mean if I now nominate any of your files for deletion, you object, and i disagree with you, the file should be deleted out of precautionary principle?--Ymblanter (talk) 16:51, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
  • This only applies if there are serious doubts about the copyright status, not personal preferences. --P 1 9 9   16:53, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
    Ok, now we have some practical material to discuss.--Ymblanter (talk) 17:02, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Duplicate[edit]

Yes, thanks, I recently found it out. --Horcrux92 (talk) 15:12, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Larger series?[edit]

Please see these two items: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:1974._%D0%A0%D0%BE%D1%81%D1%81%D0%B8%D1%8F-%D0%90_Soviet_stamp_Airplane.jpg

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:1974._%D0%A0%D1%83%D1%81%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%B9_%D0%B2%D0%B8%D1%82%D1%8F%D0%B7%D1%8C_Soviet_stamp_a.jpg

In both cases, the file I requested to be deleted is much worse quality than the replacement image. The subject matter of the replacement image is exactly the same in both cases -- the only difference is that the poor-quality image looks to be a blurry photograph and the good-quality image is properly scanned. In the first case, you closed the deletion request. The worse quality images add absolutely nothing to the archive, and it is per the Wikimedia Commons policy that otherwise identical images of much worse quality should be deleted. Further, I don't understand your comment about the file being "part of a larger series". --Agamemnus (talk) 01:41, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

I see. In a series or not, I would still like it to be deleted because it may come up before the other image in a search, and we don't want people to use blurry poor-quality images when better quality is available, do we? It's not really only a duplicate if the other image is much worse quality. Regarding the coloration, you can see that in these photos the color changes from left to right... it's pretty bad. I don't think I have the stamps myself (haven't checked), but the better-quality image has a much more consistent color and it is in line with what other scans are showing, like https://www.colourbox.com/image/russia-circa-1974-a-stamp-printed-in-ussr-show-the-first-plane-constructed-mozhaiskiy-af-circa-1974-image-6115682. The contrast of the better images may be a tad high though, but it's just down to individual scan settings and the brightness of the room (depending on how well the scanner area is isolated, which is usually not very well for almost all commercial scanners) --Agamemnus (talk)

Thanks[edit]

I categorized that image. --Llorenzi (talk) 06:35, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
