Categories like "Railway bridges in the Outer Hebrides"[edit]

Hi! If you find any more empty and unneeded categories like this you can add a {{Speedy|Reason}} - it is probably easer than starting a category for discussion. I created thousand of categories with my bot when we prepared an upload of about one million files. A few of those categories are useless but it was much easier to create all the categories and just delete the empty ones after the upload. --MGA73 (talk) 00:22, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I'd worked out the reason but wasn't sure of the etiquette involved in deleting them. S a g a C i t y (talk) 09:47, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

London categories?[edit]

Hi, have you found any advice on what should be included in London / Greater London categories? I see you have moved File:Roman Catholic Church of St. James the Great, Petts Wood, Kent - geograph.org.uk - 137223.jpg from Category:Roman Catholic churches in London to Category:Roman Catholic churches in Greater London. I believe in most cases, the former category has been used for Greater London rather than London or City of London. This may be ambiguous, but is supported by the entry in the Counties of England template {{Counties of England|prefix=:Category:Roman Catholic churches in|suffix=}} being London rather than Greater London. Just thought I'd better warn you that if you are creating or populating Greater London categories then they won't appear in the general "Counties of England" navbox unless you ask for a change to it and that most established English ceremonial county groupings use London instead of Greater London, so they would all need changing or diffusion as well.

Category:Pictures and images[edit]

Hi, I see you've added some images to this previously-deleted category, and I can't think of a good reason for recreating such a broad category. It would seem that if these should be anywhere, Category:Views would be the obvious candidate; however, I suspect that there are more specific categories for them. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 18:26, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

It's the default category for Cat-a-lot; so a few have got in there by mistake. I then move them out again to their correct destination. S a g a C i t y (talk) 18:31, 20 December 2012 (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

Recent Edit[edit]

Not sure if this edit is strictly correct... Navigable (to me) suggests that a boat could use it - well maybe in the fullness of time, but since it's an empty trough over the M6toll with no connections - not as this time! I'm not fussed either way, I just did not know if you knew about the oddness of it - it's one of those odd things where the motorway got put in only if the builder made an aqueduct when the canal crossed the path. It went up in 2003, I guess another 10 years will go before it see any water... :-(  Ronhjones  (Talk) 19:53, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

I have found that canal aqueducts are spread, chaotically, between Aqueducts, Canal Aqueducts and Navigable Aqueducts. As this stage I am trying to get the all in once place. Navigable Aqueduct seeming the most popular so I moving everything to there and this is one you noticed. As to the final naming my preference is 'Aqueducts built for canal traffic' as this will include those in and out of use - they will be contrasted against 'Aqueducts built to carry water'.

Shipley Bridge[edit]

Hi, Shipley Bridge is a bridge, not a hamlet - so the majority of images placed in Category:Shipley Bridge do not belong there, and the cat should have the normal bridge categories (eg its listed status).--Nilfanion (talk) 13:05, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

RfC on the scope of file renaming criterion 2[edit]

Pursuant to the closing of the RFC "Proposed overhaul of the "Which files should be renamed?" section", a second RfC has been opened at Commons:Requests for comment/File renaming criterion 2 specifically to address the scope of criterion 2, which currently reads "To change from a completely meaningless name to a name that describes what the image displays." Since you participated in the initial discussion, I am notifying you of the follow-up RfC.

Please note that I fully anticipate that the first few days will see a number of additional options proposed, so it may be a good idea to check back periodically on the RfC.

Thank you. Sven Manguard Wha? 01:43, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

A road numbering[edit]

Bots[edit]


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

Cobblers Thumb, Brighton[edit]

Hi, just wondering about this edit? The pub was demolished in summer/autumn 2013, and the site is now used for "shipping container" housing ([1]). Hassocks5489 (talk) 21:50, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

But it wasn't demolished when the photo was taken. S a g a C i t y (talk) 22:03, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
OK; when I found that category and started using it, that wasn't apparent (and looking at it now, the majority of images in it show buildings that were still standing at the time of the photo). Am I right in thinking, then, that the cat should only be used for buildings that are in the process of demolition, or of demolition sites? Hassocks5489 (talk) 22:11, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
