B216 bei Sonnenuntergang.jpg I am taking a part-time wikibreak from the following topics:
1) Princess Meridia uploads (including uploading -wm versions)
2) deleting any files (listing for future RfD is ok).

I am allowed to edit five Princess Meridia files per day.

If found violating this break I should be slapped firmly in the head with Roger's sizely salmon.

Hi Pitke, I was wondering wat cateogry-bot does. Thank you for your time.Lotje (talk) 13:46, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Category-bot used to imagine categories such as "1982 animal births" were for humans, resulting in all kinds of miscategorisations. It's been a while though. --Pitke (talk) 15:13, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, it adamantly added "people by name" categories to animal categories with animal birth/death year cats. See here. --Pitke (talk) 15:16, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Wanted roses[edit]

I added all rose cultivar articles missing a picture I noticed on your list - hope that's fine with you...
just thinking... perhaps I/we should create a 'puplic' subpage of Rosa cultivars, where people could add rose pictures they are looking for - and hopefully also see which ones we'd really like pictures of... what do you think?
All the best, Anna reg (talk) 10:50, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for expanding the page, that really saved me a lot of work :3 As for a public list, I suppose we should just use the existing alphabetical galleries and add an noinclude section for links to missing cultivar galleries with breeder + year info as available. --Pitke (talk) 12:00, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

File:A Close-Up of Sunny Lane's Ass at AEE.jpg[edit]

How do you explain this out of process deletion? This image is in scope of Sunny Lane, Red clothing, Close-ups of female human buttocks and Adult Entertainment Expo, was posted by joanna8555 at It was uploaded by Electroguv to Commons in 18:28, 30 May 2011 and reviewed on 30 May 2011 by the FlickreviewR robot and was confirmed to be licensed under the terms of the cc-by-sa-2.0. So undelete this file and if you think this file is out of scope nominate it to DR as out of scope is not a reason to speedy deletion. Tm (talk) 23:41, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

As a low-quality buttocks-only close-up of a person of whom we have a better quality, wider shot in the exact same clothing (and pose, even) to take up whatever use (none) it was doing in any of its scopes, I liken it to similarly low-quality close-ups of any other highly sexualised body parts. If you don't find this reason satisfactory, please let me know and I'll restore the file to DR it properly. --Pitke (talk) 00:55, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Pitke,

you created Category:Tortoiseshell cavies and Category:Tortoiseshell variant cavies. Is the last one really necessary?

To get an overview over American and European breeds I recently created:

Maybe you can help with a riddle: Teddy cavies. The EE knows the "US Teddy" and the "Swiss Teddy". The ACBA the "Teddy" and the "Teddy Satin". Category:Teddy cavies could be a disambiguation, but there are 3 to 4 breeds... How'd you handle that?

'''Teddy cavies''' might refer to:
* [[:Category:Teddy (US cavy)]], US "Teddy" breed in Europe
** [[:Category:Teddy (cavy)]], US "Teddy" breed
** [[:Category:Teddy Satin]], US "Teddy" breed
* [[:Category:Swiss (cavy)]], Swiss "Teddy" breed

For others I planed this scheme: European: Category:Peruvian cavies with {{cat see also|Peruvian (cavy)|Peruvian Satin}} --PigeonIP (talk) 13:17, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Well the other issues are more complicated and I'll need to think about them more, but as for the tortoiseshell variant cat, yes I think it is necessary or at least user-friendly. AFAIK the only cavies that are "actually" tortoiseshell (i.e. get to be called that) are those with pure red and black pigments. Any others, although genetically variants of the tortoiseshell, are called simply "bicolor" or "tricolor" depending on whether they have white or not, and sorted by whatever colours their patches are. (We really have quite a small collection of cavy photos, I might go Flickr-mining today.) --Pitke (talk) 09:23, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Thank you.
Bicolor and Tricolor may be Category:Bi-colour cavies and Category:Tricolour cavies.
I asked the EE per mail, if they donate some photos. It got forwarded to Evelyne van Vliet. p.14–95 --PigeonIP (talk) 10:32, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Bicolor and tricolor cats should follow the form and spelling that are used for virtually every other cat with those words. Here's hoping the EE greenlight some nice piggy pics! -Pitke (talk) 17:35, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

gallery mode[edit]

Hallo Pitke,
I saw that you are changing the gallery mode of some rose cultivar offspring galleries. I think that it's better if all galleries on a page have the same mode (but not necessarily the same size). What do you think of 'Ophelia' and 'Condesa de Sástago'? In the latter I made a separate gallery for upright pictures to have them as prominently featured as the ones in landscape format. Anna reg (talk) 10:14, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

My only qualm about having the same mode for all galleries on the same page is that when browsing short (1-3 images) with a larger screen, the centered alignment of the otherwise superior packed mode looks weird. -Pitke (talk) 17:31, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
I know what you mean - the smaller === headlines === look especially weird. And I just tried, align="left" doesn't work. Another thing I really don't like, is that to have the pictures reach both borders without changing the gap width (much), the rows have a different height, making it difficult to choose a good height, as the results will vary - and you get a strange effect, if you narrow or broaden your browser window. Anna reg (talk) 22:35, 1 November 2014 (UTC)


Moi, ja kiitos erittäin ahkerasta luokittelusta. Lisäsit Halikonlahden luokkaan Birdwatching in Finland. Halikonlahti on varsin laaja alue ja pääasiassa vain sen perukka, Viurilanlahti, on alue jossa käy lintuharrastajia ja siellä on lintutorneja. Suurin osa Halikonlahden luokastahan on aivan muita kuvia kuin lintuharrastukseen liittyviä. Täten en pidä tämänkaltaista luokittelua mielekkäänä, mutta ymmärrän kyllä pointtisi tässä. Tarkoituksenani on luoda tänne luokka Important Bird Areas (IBA) ja siitä edelleen maittain. Toinen erillinen luokitus on Finnish Important Bird Areas Suomen tärkeät lintualueet (FINIBA). Ne voisi ehkä lisätä sitten myös luokkaan Birdwatching in Finland. Lisäsin Birdwatching in Finland luokkaan Birdwatching towers in Finland. tässä tullut joku väärä koodi. –Makele-90 (talk) 19:52, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Joo monet näistä luokista on vielä "vaiheessa" koska sisältöä ei oikein ole tarpeeksi että tarkempi luokittelu olis järkevää tai siitä jaksaisi. Siksi "Birdwatching in Finland" käsittää lähinnä parin lintulahden luokat just nyt. Pitihän mun joskus tehä joku tommonen IBA-luokitusrakenne tänne mut jäi tekemäti. Katotaan jos tulis tehtyä tällä kertaa kun on nyt täälläkin tullut juttua aiheesta, saattais jopa muistaa. --Pitke (talk) 20:39, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Lajit Suomessa[edit]

[Species in Finland categories]

Taidat olla luomassa kattavaa luokkapuuta Suomen lajeista. Jos projekti onnistuu, eli luokkiin saadaan edustavasti sisältöä, siitä on varmasti hyvinkin paljon hyötyä. Minua kuitenkin askarruttaa miten välivaihe toimii.

Olen monasti muissa yhteyksissä löytänyt tarvitsemani luokan Commonsissa, mutta vain vähän kuvia. Eihän kaikesta ole vielä kattavasti kuvia täällä. Mutta sitten, toisessa yhteydessä, löydän kuvan jota olin ollut etsimässä. Kuva on ehkä luokiteltu, mutta toisessa hierarkiassa (esim. toinen käsittelee talvea ja toinen lunta ja Suomesta sitten on "talviset maisemat" ja "lumiset maisemat", ilman kytköstä ja ilman järkevää työnjakoa). Kun kohtaan tällaisia, yritän luoda puuttuvat kytkökset, vähintään {{cat see also}}-mallineella.

Luokka Kuuset Suomessa sisältää nyt kolme kuvaa, joista mikään ei ole kovin edustava. Suomea tuntematon ei välttämättä hoksaa, että sadoista muista luokista löytyy kuusia joka toisessa kuvassa (vastaava tilanne on Suomen puutalojen kohdalla: vain tusina taloa on luokiteltu puutaloksi).

Jos kestää ennen kuin luokka itsessään saa kattavasti sisältöä, mielestäni on kohtuullista antaa vinkki luokkaan törmäävälle siitä, mistä kuvia kannattaa etsiä. Meillä on huomattavasti paremmat edellitykset antaa vinkkejä kuin mitä ulkomaisella Commonsia tuntemattomalla käyttäjällä on etsiä kuvia omillaan. "Nature of Finland" on tietenkin turhan laaja luokka, mutta en äkkiseltään keksinyt parempaa - ja kuusia varmaankin löytyy suurimmasta osasta alaluokkia.

Onko muuten missään ohjeistusta siitä, miten näitä luomiasi luokkia pitäisi käyttää? Käyn melko usein läpi luontokuvia Suomesta ja lajiluokkien lisääminen kävisi sillöin tällöin luontevasti siinä sivussa. Yritätkö saada luokkiin rajoitetun määrän hyviä kuvia vai pitäisikö jokainen kuusimetsän (ja ehkä sekametsän?) kuva liittää kuusi-luokkaan? Miten mustikat, kanervat ja poronjäkälät?

--LPfi (talk) 17:05, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Mjoo kyllä, näin on. Pyrin siihen että kaikkiin luomiini luokkiin tulee kohtalainen sisältö. Jotkin luokat ovat niin keskeisiä (esim. Picea abies in Finland) että uskallan luoda ne jo ennen kuin olen kerännyt "tarpeeksi" sisältöä mukaan koska sisältöä on ihan takuulla tulossa aikanaan. Muita luokkia seuloessani sitten valikoin en suinkaan kaikkia kuvia joissa kuusia vilahtaa, vaan hyvälaatuisia tai muuten edustavia esim. vaihtelevine kuusibiomeineen, -muotoineen, sellaisia joissa näkyy Suomelle tyypillistä ympäristöä tai muuta lajistoa, jne. Kuusikuvia kuitenkin on niin perhanasti. Samaan tapaan toimivat pitkälti muutkin lajiluokitukset. Kaikkien kuvien ei suinkaan tarvitse olla lähikuvia, joissa koko yksilö näkyy selkeästi. Esimerkiksi miljöökuva on ihan ok, jos esiintymispaikka on tyypillinen ja kuvassa kuitenkin esiintyy lajitunnistettu yksilö. Jos yksilön sijainti ei ole ihan selkeä, niin Note-toiminnolla voi osoittaa sen paikan.
Siihen, että luokka löytyy mutta sisältöä ei, en oikein voi sanoa muuta kuin että tervetuloa talkoisiin. Luokittelu on sellainen puuha, joka ei täällä lopu. Monet luokat syntyvät niin, että joku luo ne omaan tarpeeseen, muttei jää seulomaan ylempiä luokkatasoja erotellakseen sieltä loppuja aihepiirin tiedostoja tarkempaan luokitteluun. Esimerkki: siirrän luokasta "Trees of Finland" tiedostoja luokkaan "Tilia cordata in Finland". Piipahdan luokassa "Tilia cordata" siirtämässä suomeksi nimetyt tiedostot ja muut ilmiselvät tapaukset uuteen alaluokkaan. En kuitenkaan jää selaamaan kaikkia kuvia, joita luokassa on lajista riippuen kymmenistä satoihin. Tunnen omantunnonpistoksen, koska en saman tien kopioinut maakohtaiseen luokkaan siirtämiäni kuvia asianmukaisiin aiheluokkiin kuten "Tilia cordata - plants", "Tilia cordata - saplings". En edes viitsi aloittaa moista luokittelua, koska muista luokkanimikäytänteistä eroava tapa nimetä luokkia tyyliin "Laji - aihepiiri" turhauttaa ja hämmentää sisäistä insinööriäni.
"Katso myös" -linkit on hyvä idea, koetan muistaa lisäillä niitä milloin kytkös lähiaiheisiin ei ole luokan oma yläluokka tai alaluokka.
Lisäyksenä vielä tuohon mainitsemaasi tapaukseen Lumi Suomessa, Talvi Suomessa -- täydellisemmässä luokkarakenteessa ongelmaa ei olisi, koska suurin osa lumikuvista löytyisi molempien luokkien alla olevasta luokasta Lumi talvella Suomessa. Tai sitten ei-talviset lumet olisi erotettu omaansa ja lumiluokka olisi talviluokan alla koska lumi kuitenkin on ennen kaikkea talvi-ilmiö täällä. Luokittelusta on paljon näkemyksiä. --Pitke (talk) 21:34, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
Juu, talkoita riittää. Luokkien luomisessa vain on se, että ne voivat lisätä työmäärää olematta hyödyllisiä ennen kuin joku on tehnyt työn. Ajatuksesi näistä luokista kuulostavat kuitenkin hyviltä, eikä minulle liene huomauttamista, kunhan aika tietyn luokan luomisesta edes jonkinlaisen sisällön varmistamiseen ei veny liikaa.
Minulla on ollut vastaavaa omantunnontutkiskelua, kun olen joitakin luokkia yrittänyt selventää. Oman haasteensa tuo kieli (mitkä reet, kelkat, ahkiot tai pulkat ovat sledgejä ja mitkä sleightejä?) ja ennestään sekavat hierarkiat (eläinjälkien suhteen luovutin, en uskaltanut ryhtyä suursiivoukseen ilman keskustelua, enkä keksinyt missä keskustella).
Lumi ja talvi Suomessa ovat ongelma, koska emme elä täydellisessä maailmassa. Kahden luokan lisääminen melkein jokaiseen Suomen talvikuvaan on työlästä ja jäisi useimmilta tekemättä. Siksi luokat pitäisi jotenkin yhdistää (ehkä ehdottomallasi tavalla), mutta se taas tuo ongelmia kansainväliseen symmetriaan. Helpoin tapa on tuo "katso myös", jonka avulla kuvat löytyvät vaikka luokkarakenne olisi hiukan sekava ja kuvat vain osassa luokkia.
Kuusille kannattaisi varmaankin luoda galleria (Picea abies in Finland tms.). Hyvä lajitelma hukkuu nopeasti, kun muut alkavat käyttää luokkaa, mutta galleriassa se säilyy ainakin kohtalaisesti, koska siihen ei lisätä kuvia sattumanvaraisesti. Toki luokastakin pitää huolehtia, mutta ainakin galleriaan "pelastetut" kuvat löytyvät helposti.

INeverCry Blocked - Serious or Joking?[edit]

I noticed that the account of User:INeverCry has been blocked for "abuse of admin tools, baseless accusations, disruptive editing." If I'm not mistaken, this admin has already announced his/her retirement from Wikipedia, although that may be a joke in itself. Perhaps you are participating in some sort of inside joke by blocking the user? Please help me understand what's going on here! Thanks, --BDS2006 (talk) 07:49, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

I would never block a user as a joke. One block reason I did not remember to enter while blocking was pointiness: admins mustn't block users for sockpuppetry based on no disclosed proof. The block I issued is temporary and rather short, unlike the infinite block INC had placed on themselves on grounds of "Intimidation/harassment". In light of recent discussion on Russavia's sockpuppets and so on, I think this indefinite self-block was not a genuine "leaving forever" autoblock (AFAIK, Commons does not grant users blocks on their own request even if they want to abandon an account forever). Rather, it seems to me the autoblock was a part of a pointy demonstration that went something like this: 1) "these users are Russavia's sockpuppets or cronies, no one else is going to block them so I will" 2) "and here's the block the Secret Cabal will give me when they catch me so I'll save them the trouble and block myself". The edit summary ICN left as they deleted their user page supports this assumption rather heftily. I hope that in a month's time they will have calmed down and will be able to discuss the situation in a constructive way. However my experience on Wikipedia is that users who start acting out or being pointy due to beliefs of a Secret Cabal do not have a favourable prognosis.
I personally view my block action not only as a block but as an amendment of an overly long block made based on wrong reasons. I'll copy this comment on their talk page for clarity. --Pitke (talk) 12:24, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Please complete template[edit]

Hiya Pitke: If you're going to keep an image, like Commons:Deletion requests/File:(north) Ballachulish Church 1829.JPG, please be sure that you provide a source for the image, otherwise it ends right back up in image without a source and the problem is not solved. I'd point out there is no proof to any of the following "Photo taken circa 1890. Photographer unknown. We don't know when the creator of this image died." If we do not know the photographer or the source, we cannot confirm and 1890 photograph. This looks in much too good quality to be pre 1900. Would you please take another look at this totally unused file and see if you can complete the information, else perhaps consider reclosing this "not kept". Thanks!

Expressing valid concern (in this case, lack of labelling to pair specimen with species info) is not vandalism. --Pitke (talk) 18:53, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
(Just a passerby comment) Category:Unidentified organisms and its subcategories are maintenance categories to attract expert eyes so that they get identified. So if a work is already identified to the lowest level maximum possible by viewing a photo (can be a genus or family for small subjects), there is not much meaning in adding it to "unidentified ...". See similar expert opinions here. It is a pity we don't have a good mechanism to identify organisms so far. We're working on it. Any suggestion, help, and participation is highly appreciated. (BTW, I think this edit war is due to a small misunderstanding as many people here believe all organisms here need to identified to species level or added to "unidentified". It can be discussed. So I don't like the edit-war; nor the bold accuse like he vandalized. Personally I don't like admins fight for a small topic hurting each other. Be friendly and help to make a positive environment. Have a nice day to all.) Jee 02:18, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

You may have noticed INeverCry has retired and there are some personal attacks which have been revdelled on his talk page:


It is plain to see that he has "retired" to avoid the consequences of this disgraceful behaviour. I would suggest that you take it to COM:AN/U to have it dealt with it so that he can't simply return as if nothing happened.

On a sidenote, you might like to contact WMFOffice as well given that calling an editor a "cunt" is now grounds for being globally banned by the WMF. 18:23, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

  • My apologies Pitke. My behavior a few days ago certainly was crappy and embarrassing to say the least. It won't happen again. I ask you to give me one last chance to put this behind me and get back to doing helpful work. I agree that a block would definitely be warranted as a preventative measure if I run my mouth again, but I really don't think that will be a problem going forward.

    I'd also like to address Russavia: Scott, I don't know why I've been such a hardass toward you. I think I took the whole "sock-hunter" idea of adminship and carried it way too far. We never had any problems and got along fine. I wish it was 2014 again, and you and me were still fellow admins. As I say at my talk, I won't be interfering with you or your activity here in any way going forward. I wish you both a Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. INeverCry 21:22, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Please undelete[edit]

These are all linked to from other editor's userpages. Move them if need be, but they should be undeleted please. Sr71a2015 (talk) 00:32, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Kuvan poistopyyntö[edit]

Pystytkö poistamaan File:Samsung Xcover 2 back open.JPG kuvan aiemmat versiot, koska niissä näkyy sarjanumero? --Zunter (talk) 10:44, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Piilotin ne. --Pitke (talk) 18:13, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
Kiitän. --Zunter (talk) 21:02, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Types of Red?[edit]

I see you added Category:Types of red to File:Great tit side-on.jpg on 21 January 2015‎. I see no reason why that image should be in that category. Sure, it has a reddish background but that seems super tenuous. Was it a mistake or is there a reason I'm not realizing. Have you added more images of birds to categories of color? Jason Quinn (talk) 12:42, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

It was for the curious shade of red in the background. It's not my habit to add images like these but for a few I've done it for the same reason. --Pitke (talk) 13:30, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Pitke, I created the category:Chaperones an now I come across the category:Chaperons (people). Face-sad.svg Sorry for that. What to you suggest? Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 13:43, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Well, the thing to do is figure out which is the dominantly used form and move the media from the other name under that name, and make the other name a category redirect. It's not an easy question, but I think we could go with the Oxford English Dictionary, which says that "chaperone" is a common misspelling. Chaperons (people) is also clearer for people who aren't fluent in English. If you agree we can merge these categories without further ado. --Pitke (talk) 15:54, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
That's fine by me. Thank you. Face-smile.svg Lotje (talk) 05:46, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
Mark Cavendish and chaperone, this says it all... Lotje (talk) 05:49, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
I don't quite follow.... --Pitke (talk) 20:10, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
Me again, why can't I just explain in a proper whay what I want to say Face-sad.svg, I mean: if I would have paid more attention to that image before creating the category Chaperone , I would have known, it clearly says: "chaperon" Lotje (talk) 08:48, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

De-adminship warning[edit]

This talk page in other languages:

Dear Pitke, I am writing to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2016 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you, odder (talk) 22:28, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Note to self and to anyone it may concern; I have dealt with this. --Pitke (talk) 09:06, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Are these colours correct?[edit]


As you are specialized into animal colours, I wanted to ask you whether these colour categories are correct (especially in black&tan dogs there are some that are not completely black in their "black" region): Suomenlapinkoira --Canarian (talk) 15:02, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll take a look. --Pitke (talk) 23:32, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Happy New Year, Pitke![edit]

Category:Plants damaged by pests[edit]

Terve Pitke,

we should define a clear border between Category:Insect damage and Category:Plants damaged by pests. I'm not sure, how to categorize damages from insects to plants in the moment.--Kémite (talk) 19:38, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Well, plants have pests that are not insects, and insect damage can occur on things that are not plants, also plants can be damaged by insects that are not pests; it would be good to have a common subcategory of Plants damaged by pest insects (or similar) for these. --Pitke (talk) 14:54, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
