Category:Rana, Norway, not Category:Rana[edit]

English: Please use category:Rana, Norway when uploading images related to the municipality Rana in Nordland. Category:Rana is related to frogs! You should also concider subcategories when uploading many images on the same subject, see Category:Plura and category:Mo Church, Rana as examples.
Norsk bokmål: Vær snill å bruk category:Rana, Norway når du laster opp bilder relatert til den norske kommunen. Category:Rana er relatert til frosker! Du bør også lage underkategorier når du laster opp mange bilder om samme tema, se Category:Plura og category:Mo Church, Rana som eksempler.

Made a cleaning up. Moved 10 photos of Fossetangen into the subcategory Ranelva, and 18 photos of Langneset from Rana, Norway into the new subcategory Langneset (Mo i Rana). Sandivas 22:51, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
Made a through examination, as far as I could see, creating new subcategories, in order to find new sensible placings of photos. More may remain. Please inform me about typos. Sandivas 02:16, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for sorting those pictures (and of course for taking and uploading them in the first place!) Rana and Mo i Rana are now maybe the municipality and city in Norway with the best photo-coverage on wikipedia commons, thanks to your efforts. One more detail about subcategories, when creating a category like Category:Andfiskvatnet it should be a subategory of both category:Rana, Norway and Category:Lakes of Nordland - that way they are organised together either we search for Andfiskvatnet as a lake in Nordland or as a geografic place in Rana. I will do some recat later today with this and some other categories, I have I nice tool for changing categories on several pictures at the same time (which unfortunately doesn't work on my jobcomputer which uses Internet Explorer instead of Firefox...). Again thanks for all those images and for making them more avvailable for other users through categories (keeping our talk in english for the benefit of users passing by who may not speak helgelending ;) Finn Rindahl 11:33, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. Added 5 more subcategories, moved pictures and made some more cleanup. I once wrote category:Rana (municipality) when adding images, in order to avoid ambigousness. Those images are now in appropriate subcategories. That said, I have more photos, ready to become copyleft. It is enough time to upload those images, which have been a problem. It's a shame that more people do not release their photos into copyleft. Just because I took the snapshots, doesn't mean that I own the place! (although it seems to be the attitude by many). If people spent a few minutes of their spare time to take some snapshots, making them free, it would ease my work. But (sorry for accusing people) maybe it is a symptom of laziness when people cannot do the simplest things without demanding payments for it. Escpesially when releasing photos into copyleft is of uttermost importance in order to reduce the power of the patent mafia. Sandivas 23:16, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

More concerning categories...[edit]

...please make sure that you don't include a space before the categoryname.

[[Category: Rana]]

leads to the right category (well, in this case the wrong one ;), but makes it impossible to use semiautomatic processes for recategorisation. Another thing, be sure to check the excisting name of categories, especially when it comes to in/of (Category:Rivers in Nordland/Category:Rivers of Nordland) Finn Rindahl 22:33, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

The Category Mo i Rana railway station[edit]

Could you help me moving the category Category:Mo i Rana railway station as a subcategory of Category:Nordlandsbanen in Rana? How do I do it? Removing the category tag from every single image, until none in the category is left, and then adding anew the Category:Mo i Rana railway station on every single image? Sandivas 19:58, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

First of all, if this was a question for me - it might be useful to leave such questions at my user talk instead of here, as there is a risk that I'll miss it otherwise. But this time I noticed your question, so here we go: I'll simply edited the excisting Category:Mo i Rana railway station to be a subcat of Category:Nordlandsbanen in Rana and then removed the now unneccessary Category:Nordlandsbanen in Rana from every image in that category, hope that's how you wanted it? Finn Rindahl 19:15, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I was a bit stressed, but figured out how to remove the subcategory from "Mo i Rana". In order to help the municipality of Vefsn, I uploaded images of Elsfjord and Elsfjord church and created the new subcategories "Elsfjord church" and "Elsfjord". ... while simultaniously having to deal with disrupting phone calls ! But now everything is OK. Thanks. Sandivas 21:33, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
Glad you're looking after Vefsningan as well, they could do with some help ;o) Feel free to ask if you need some help with large recategorisations, I have some tools that make me able to do such things rather efficiently. Regards, Finn Rindahl 19:47, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
I actually drove the whole way with my car, two municipalities southwards to Elsfjord in order take those snapshots for Wikipedia. Maybe Elsfjord is one of the most exotic and least visited parts of their municipality; however, it should be possible for Vefsningan themselves to ease my work a bit. :) Sandivas 22:17, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful informations about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

This message was added automatically by Filbot, if you need some help about it, ask its master (Filnik) or go to the Commons:Help desk. --Filnik 17:29, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

The license problem is solved. I simply forgot to add the necessary licence tags to this file when uploading it. The appropriate tags are now added. Sandivas 20:36, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I saw this as well as on some other of your uploads, and just wanted to inform you by the message, cos images without licence may be deleted and there were non at the time of my warning. Have a good day --Justass (talk) 15:45, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
Thats OK. I first uploaded each image without a license, and then added the license afterwards. I wasn't sure what choice to choose from the upload menu in the first place, and figured out that a possible solution was specify the license afterwards. And begin with a dummy, temporarily "no license" upload. Sandivas 17:36, 5 November 2009 (UTC)


File:Karita Bekkemellem 05.jpg[edit]

Hi Sandivas,
if the copyright holder requests "The images are free, but the photographer shall be mentioned in the text describing the image", then PD is not the correct choice of license. You should instead choose {{attribution}}. In this case {{attribution|nolink=Full name|text=Required attribution text: by Someuser, available from somewhere.}} would be the best fitting template. --Túrelio (talk) 17:24, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm in a bit stressfull situation right now (a long travel by air plane in a few hours). So I became a bit stressed here. Sorry. Sandivas 18:50, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
No problem, have a good and save journey. --Túrelio (talk) 22:33, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
