File:Différence nb d'articles de-fr.png[edit]

May you update this diagram?--Kopiersperre (talk) 21:53, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I don't think so, sorry. I lost the file in my previous computer, and I don't have quite the time to redo everything. Rhadamante (talk) 01:21, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Amides and category names[edit]

Leaving aside [[the question of whether the amides are primary, secondary, or tertiary, please note that the category name is misspelled: it should be "substituted", not "substitued" (which feels like a compromise between the English and French spellings: ("substitué" + "substituted") / 2 = substitued?))

I've spoken to an admin, who says that he's not willing to implement the automatic changing of all relevant category tags to correct that error for as long as the issue may be controversial.

I politely request that you post on that discussion page and assent to at least having the spelling error corrected. DS (talk) 14:01, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Chemical structure and Organic compounds[edit]

I see from your contributions that you moved a lot of images from Category:Chemical structures to Category:Organic compounds (example [1]). It is fine to put these files in Category:Organic compounds, but you have to leave them in Category:Chemical structures, too, because these two categories are independent. --Daniele Pugliesi (talk) 02:47, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:Chemical structures should only contain subcategories, not files. --Leyo 20:33, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
I strongly agree with Leyo. Category:Chemical structures is a supercategory that should only contain subcategories. Rhadamante (talk) 04:46, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Oxazolidinones as carbamates[edit]

Looks like I was too focused on the oxazolidin-2-one‎ isomer:( Should Category:Oxazolidinones be diffused into -2- (subcat of Category:Carbamates), -4- (subcat of Category:Gamma-lactams), and -5- (subcat of Category:Gamma-lactones) subcats? That is, split it up among the various isomers File:Oxazolidinones.png of the general ring. DMacks (talk) 12:49, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

@DMacks: That's one solution, and probably, on the long term, the best. Another would be to let all these files in Oxazolidinones, and cross-categorize in the pertinent categories (carbamates/gamma-lactones) the adequate files, independently. But I have the feeling the first solution fits best the "Common's categorization optics", meaning multiple ultra-specialized sub-categories instead of cross-categorization. Rhadamante (talk) 06:03, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Former states and their successors[edit]

Hi. Thanks for creating the Category:Ambassadors of the Ottoman Empire to France. It attracted my attention how you constructed it, by using a red link to Category:Relations of France and the Ottoman Empire instead of Category:Relations of France and Turkey. I think the "former country" is valid only for Turks but not for the French who have set up various kingdoms, empires and republics in the same time period; they are always "France" (?). If you make a visit to Ankara I may show you many state institutions (of the Republic of Turkey) with sign boards on their entrance saying "Established in 1866" etc. Also you can see how many institutions of Turkey celebrate their 150th anniversary, etc, while the Turkish Republic is not yet 100 years old. (See, for instance, https://www.sayistay.gov.tr/en/?p=2&CategoryId=10) I'm sure you understand me. Cheers. --E4024 (talk) 08:41, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

@E4024: Hi, it's always tricky dealing with ancient countries, or countries which existed under different names/forms in the history. You point the fact of how are treated differently France in Turkey on the matter. Not necessarily. I mean, in this situation, the one with the different treatment here is France, because France is maybe one of the few exception in the world (with some countries like Japan) with some sort of continuum (in name/territory, etc) for at least a thousand years (maybe less for France, it officially exists on the paper since 843, but in the reality, as a country of the whole, probably not before the end of the Hundred Years' War). England exists since the ~1000s, but changed to become the Kingdom of Great Britain (1707) when it "merged" with Scotland, and then the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in 1801. Germany, as a country, didn't exist before 1870. Italy before 1860. Spain before the ~15th century. Russia existed as a country since the ~16th century, but disappeared in the Soviet Union in 1917, an reappeared as Russia in 1991. Long story short, I try to respect this historic reality and avoid anachronisms as much as I can (but it's always tricky). On the matter of Turkey/Ottoman Empire, I don't pretend to be a specialist, and I may be wrong, but Turkey is not the Ottoman Empire. It's a big part of it, its major heir, but not it. And on this point, it seems the difference between the two entities as been placed in 1919 (as much for the difference between Austria and the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918), as the empire ceased to exist as this date, and was broken up in several countries, one of them being Turkey (and again, the same happened to the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918).
And back to the categories, you can see that I did the same thing with the OE/Turkey than with England/Great Britain/UK. Rhadamante (talk) 18:37, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
When you have a chance to visit Vienna go to see the Turkish Embassy, which is a palace. At the outer gate you will see a sign board (plaquette) saying it was bought during the reign of Sultan Mehmed V (Reshad) in 1915. This signboard was hanged there in late Republican (Turkish Republic) times. You can see at the Ambassador's office walls the pictures of all "Turkish" Ambassadors to Austria (Austrian Empire, Austria-Hungary whatsoever) from the very first Ottoman envoy to current days. The same is valid for our Embassy residence, a palacette (Hôtel de Lamballe) in Paris. Been there, seen that. Let me also give you an "official" link for the list of Turkish Ambassadors to Paris since 1797, as our case was Turco-French relations. Best. --E4024 (talk) 07:36, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Sportspeople by continent[edit]

Hi. I believe continent templates you add to sportspeople cats should consider the "Federation" to which the country belongs and not the geographical facts. For example Cyprus is an island belonging to Asia Minor but they participate in European Federations and their activities. IMHO, either we should limit these continent templates to Federation affiliation as I suggest above, or add all transcontinental countries to more than one continent, so there will not be a double standard. For example, You should add Spain cats to Africa, as only the Canary Islands have an area of 7.493 km² on that continent, even if you ignore the two cities of Spain in Northern Africa. (Of course we can ignore the small islands there which do not have permanent civilian settlement.) If you make a comparison with the area of the Canary Islands to smaller countries from Africa or Europe you will be surprised that they are larger than many countries in one or the other continent. All the best. --E4024 (talk) 07:18, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

@E4024: The problem is, I use what already exists (I try to avoid as much as possible to put my hands inside templates on Commons). And for instance, for now, the few templates available are mostly the geographical ones; templates such as Template:UEFA member associations are fairly recent and 1) have the disadvantage to not be auto-translated, as Template:Countries of Europe is, 2) are currently only available for Europe (UEFA), Asia (AFC) and South America (CONMEBOL) 3) for as far as I know, only work for football (soccer). So for now, I will keep using the geographical templates, for lack of a proper alternative (and honestly, it is far less annoying to use the same template everywhere). Regarding the multi-continent countries, I think we agree the problem is not Spain, or Cyprus (which is geographically in Asia Minor, but politically, economically and many other -ly in Europe, as a member of the EU for instance) - or even France, which has literately territories on all the continents, expect Asia - but countries at (or considered at) the edge of Asia/Europe (Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, etc.). For those, I have no problem on just keeping the geographical template relative to their actual sportive federation (ie Europe); but the problem will arise specifically for Israel, which is not on the European geographical template, but is European for sport relative matters (at least for soccer).

Sportswomen/Female sportspeople categories[edit]

I noticed that you have renamed some sportswomen categories to be use the term "female sportspeople". You might not have known, but there is currently a discussion here about whether this should be done. Until that discussion is finished, please do not make these changes. Do feel free to give your input there, however. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:39, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

(TPS) Yesterday I was going to write at that CfD "close this discussion if consensus have been reached at etc" but some browser problem impeded me and I avoided insisting. Now that I see what you say, I'm afraid we don't use well enough the discussion method in Commons. Some discussions continue forever without reaching a common point and others just wait for participants... Sorry to interrupt. Best. --E4024 (talk) 09:52, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
@E4024: I agree that discussions could be managed better and that there often aren't enough participants. I have no objection to the cfd being closed if you think there's been enough discussion, I just think it shouldn't be acted on until it closes. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:49, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
@Auntof6, E4024: Well 1) it was something I was waiting for a long time, ie correcting the discrepancy between men/male and women/female categories (~95% of "men categories" were "male sportspeople", almost 100% "women categories" were "sportswomen") and something that pissed me off when I created new categories (but I followed that implicit rule) 2) I saw some re-namings in my watchlist, a few days old 3) I looked to see if there was a discussion about it a found the CfD 4) I saw everyone there agreed and no one posted anything in the last 4 days 5) this + the already existent renamings = I've been bold, even if it is not a guideline here. And when I see CFDs were everyone agreed 1 year ago and nothing has been done yet, sometimes I wish it was... Rhadamante (talk) 19:25, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Auntof, no, I did not think that the discussion was enough. You did not see the "etc" part I had in mind. I was also caught between using my lousy English or my worse Nabolidano in the discussion. Frankly I wish we had only a women cat for all "human females" (sic). Imagine some guy disturbing an attractive woman whose age he cannot imagine: "What a charming human female you are!" :) In this sense I like the use of Spanish I've seen in some countries: "Escuela de mujeres"; and you look into the backyard, the average age of the students playing there is 8 or 9... On the other hand, just as we have Category:Businesswomen I would like to have a "Category:Businessmen" and keep Category:Businesspeople only as a "common ceiling". (Thank God we don't have Category:Business girls or Category:Business old women, or do we? I'm afraid to use the brackets and see we might really have them! :) Take care, both. --E4024 (talk) 06:58, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Xavier Dugoin[edit]

Bonjour

J'avoue ne pas avoir compris ce que vous avez voulu faire comme "ménage" dans les catégories relatives à Xavier Dugoin.

J'ai essayé de recatégoriser les photos plus simplement (c'est peut-être ce que vous vouliez faire) en indiquant que chacune de ces photos relèvent directement ou indirectement :

Là est le rôle de la catégorie : Category:Xavier Dugoin à Villabé

Est-ce que cela vous conviendrait ?

Cordialement, --Poudou99 (talk) 01:57, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

@Poudou99: Avant mon intervention, toutes les photos étaient dans "Xavier Dugoin à la cérémonie des vœux du maire de Villabé (2016)", qui était elle-même dans la catégorie "Xavier Dugoin à Villabé", et dont elle était le seul item, cette même catégorie étant à son tour dans la catégorie "Xavier Dugoin", et dont elle était également le seul item. Il y avait donc au moins une catégorie de trop dans cet empilement de catégories quasiment vides. Le choix logique de suppression était la catégorie intermédiaire, "Xavier Dugoin à Villabé" qui n'a pas vraiment de sens, vu à quel point elle est limitative (même des personnes infiniment plus célèbres que Xavier Dugoin n'ont pas de catégorie spécifique par lieu, tout au plus par année, voire par année et événement - durant telle campagne/meeting/cérémonies/réunion etc, la catégories "Xavier Dugoin à la cérémonie des vœux du maire de Villabé (2016)" pouvant s'assimiler à ce genre de catégories, encore qu'il s'agisse à mon sens sans doute encore là d'un excès de catégorisation, vu qu'à part cette série category:Xavier Dugoin est vide). Au passage Category:Personnalités à Villabé (et toutes ses sous-catégories) me semble extrêmement douteux quant à sa pertinence, tant qu'à sa dénomination, en français dans le texte. Je ne pense pas qu'il existe le moindre autre exemple de ce type de catégories Rhadamante (talk) 02:25, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Volcanoes by country category hierarchy[edit]

Hello Rhadamante,
you appear to have recently moved many volcanoe categories from a name with "Volcanoes of..." to "Volcanoes in...". For me it seems to be more appropriate to name the categories "Volcanoes of ...". This naming scheme is quite common for categories regarding geographical objects. For example: Category:Landforms of the United States‎, Category:Shorelines of the United States‎, Category:Mountains of the United States and many more. It also makes sense for me since such landforms are quite unlikely to change their location. However, if there was a community discussion with an agreement prior to this mass rename operation I would agree with that but I can't find one. Can you help me on that? Yours sincerely --Zaccarias (talk) 09:43, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Döderlein portrait[edit]

Hi Rhadamante, when I uploaded Döderlein's portrait, I gave that file a name that explicitely mentioned the source of the portrait, and the date it was published. I'm quite convinced this is not only relevant information, but it will surely help when more portraits of Döderlein will become available in the public domain, to distinguish between them. I cannot see a single reason why this file would have to be renamed, and yet this is what you did today.

Information on the subject of a file should not only be hidden in the description page: file names should be as descriptive as possible too, especially when one can expect more files of the same kind to exist or to be uploaded in the near future. I therefore undid your edit, and reverted the file name to the one I originally very deliberately gave. I expect you to leave the name as it is now. Wikiklaas (talk) 22:54, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
