Timber framing in Essen[edit]

Hallo Sjokolade, die Kategorie für Fachwerk in Essen ist Category:Timber framing in Essen, nicht etwa das unzulässige Category:Fachwerkhaus in Essen (NRW). -- Ies (talk) 16:01, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Und diese Kategorie gehören auch nur Bilder, auf denen Fachwerk zu sehen ist und nicht beispielsweise File:Landsberger Str. 8, Essen-Kettwig.jpg. Für solche Türen in Essen gibt es dafür aber Category:Doors in Essen. -- Ies (talk) 16:07, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Norway puzzle[edit]

Hallo Sjokolade!

Ich (und vielleicht auch Andere) bin am Rätseln über den Unterschied zwischen Category:Norway puzzle und Category:Unidentified locations in Norway. Aufklärung ist gefragt! MfG BjørnN (talk) 19:05, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

hallo, da gibt's momentan noch keinen, da ich gestern erst angefangen habe sie zu füllen. Sie dient dazu das Norwegen-Bilderrätsel zu bestücken (siehe hier: de:Wikipedia:WikiProjekt Norwegen/Bilderrätsel. Diese Kategorie soll jedoch etwas weiter gehen als nicht lokalisierte Dateien zu zeigen, in den folgenden Wochen wollte ich noch Bilder raussuchen, die kategorisiert sind. Viele haben nur das Schlagwort einer Insel oder eines Gebirges, doch welche Berge oder Täler zu sehen sind, erfährt man selten. Das soll nun mit dem Bilderrätsel aufgeklärt werden. Die Kategorie bitte nicht entfernen sie ist noch nicht "fertig". Wenn du Lust hast kannst du sie mitbefüllen, ich bin für Hilfe dankbar. Liebe Grüße --Sjokolade (talk) 19:19, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Earth 2014 - Ein Wiki-Beitrag für den Naturschutz[edit]

WLE-Deutschland-2014.jpg

Hallo Sjokolade,

vor einer Woche endete der zweimonatige Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth. Du hast daran aktiv teilgenommen und wir möchten Dir dafür herzlich danken.

Mit rund 14.500 Fotos hat Deutschland einen Anteil von 20 % an diesem internationalen Projekt erbracht, an dem sich 15 Länder beteiligten. Sehr erfreulich ist die hohe Zahl an 729 Teilnehmern allein in Deutschland. Einen Überblick zu den Fotos und Teilnehmern findest du auf unserer WLE-Projektseite.

Gegenwärtig ist die deutsche Jury dabei, diesen wertvollen Fotobestand zu geschützten Naturlandschaften und Naturdenkmalen zu sichten. Am kommenden Wochenende wird in Hamburg die entscheidende Jury-Sitzung stattfinden. Wir wünschen auch Dir mit Deinem Foto-Beitrag dabei viel Glück und Erfolg.

Der nächste Fotowettbewerb steht bereits vor der Tür. Im September findet nun schon zum vierten Mal der Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments statt, wo die Kulturdenkmale im Vordergrund stehen. Doch du musst mit dem Fotografieren nicht bis zum September warten. Vielleicht kannst du den Sommer nutzen um entsprechend den offiziellen Denkmallisten geeignete Motive aufzuspüren. Ebenso kannst du gerne dabei helfen, die hochgeladenen Fotos zu kategorisieren oder in Wikipedia-Artikel und Listen einzubinden.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß dabei wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 10. Juli 2014)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in Kürze[edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo Sjokolade,

in Kürze ist es wieder soweit. Der nun schon traditionelle Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments wird im September zum vierten Mal stattfinden. In ähnlicher Form hatte unlängst der Wettbewerb "Wiki Loves Earth" eine erfolgreiche Premiere. Zu allen bisherigen vier Wettbewerben haben seit 2011 gut 3000 unterschiedliche Teilnehmer (User) ihren Beitrag geleistet. Du warst dabei, und bist auch herzlich eingeladen, am bevorstehenden WLM-Wettbewerb wieder dabei zu sein.

Allein in Deutschland wurden in den letzten drei Jahren im Rahmen von WLM rund 100.000 Fotos zu den insgesamt ca. 850.000 Kulturdenkmalen bundesweit hochgeladen. Jährlich haben sich mehrere Hundert Wiki-Fotographen daran beteiligt. Auch im kommenden Denkmalmonat wird dies gewiss wieder der Fall sein. Der Tag des offenen Denkmals am 14. September bietet bundesweit vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Denkmale nicht nur von außen, sondern auch von innen zu fotografieren. Denkmallisten sind dabei ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt und zugleich auch Ziel der Einbindung der Fotos. Auch in diesem Jahr sind wieder neue Denkmallisten hinzugekommen, die hilfreich bei der Planung von individuellen oder Gruppen-Fototouren sind und auf eine Bebilderung warten, wie z.B. zu Görlitz oder Zittau. Unter den Landeshauptstädten fehlt nur noch Stuttgart. Aber auch hier ist Licht in Sicht.

In der Mitte Deutschlands hat die Denkmallandschaft der thüringischen Landeshauptstadt Erfurt nun das Licht der Wikipedia-Welt entdeckt. Mehr als 50 Tabellen enthalten 3.700 Denkmale. Allein die wunderschön restaurierte Altstadt umfasst 1.800 Denkmale. Eine von WMDE geförderte WLM-Fototour nach Erfurt am Wochenende vom 29. – 31. August lädt herzlich ein, diese einzigartige Kulturlandschaft zu dokumentieren. Mehr Informationen findest Du auf der Projektseite.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 16. August 2014)

wrong category for Lars Tiller's artwork[edit]

Hello, Sjokolade, I have already commented on this on the discussion page for the new category you have created, "Paintings by Lars Tiller", but as you have not answered there, I mention it here, as well: Only a few of the works of art that you have given this category are actually paintings. I suggest you change it to either "Artwork by Lars Tiller" or "Works of art by Lars Tiller" - or move those that are not paintings back to the "Lars Tiller"-category. I see you are working with the Bjørn Krogstad category now. There are a few prints (not paintings) there, as well. All the best, Kjersti L. 12:07, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Kjersti, I'm sorry I missed this discussion, I'm not every day online. Are these prints reproductions of the artwork (painting) or produced Tiller / Krogstad his artwork as a print? If it is a reproduction it would be wonderful if you could annotate it in the description. Otherwise I have to create a new cat "Prints by ..." or move it back to the "name"-cat. A "artwork by"-cat is not common as I can see, just for unknown artists. Can you please help me, what is "pva"? I will look up Lars Tiller soon. Thank you very much. - hilsen --Sjokolade (talk) 12:27, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Here I am again: No, the ones that are not paintings, are not reproductions. (Apart from Lars Tiller "the sculptor". They are serigraphies, drawings and linocuts (those I remember), as is stated in the description field for each file. PVA=Polyvinyl Acetate, used as a binding with acrylic paint - I think. I have asked the artist Bjørn Krogstad to write a short explanation in German, which I will forward to you. It may not be precise or correct of me to write just "PVA", but that was what the artist had done. I'll be back! :) Kjersti L. 12:46, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Ok I've looked through it. In the sculptures description is mentioned "painting" but I thought of a drawing too. If you're sure it is, I would change it to drawing and move it. The other ones in Lars Tiller I could not identify, so 2 are still not correct. Which ones In Krogstads cat are wrong? Bukser mi (and badebilder?)? Description of bukser mi is just mixed technique... If you want you can optimise it yourself. - greetings --Sjokolade (talk) 13:19, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Bjørn Krogstad's explanation: "Polyvinylacetat(PVA, auch als PVAC bezeichnet) ist ein in der Kunstmalerei verwendetes Bindemittel. PVA wird als Dispersion verarbeitet, und kann mit Farbpigmenten vermischt werden. In der Malerei haben die PVA-Farben fast die selben Eigenschaften als Acrylfarben und andere synthetischen Kunstharzfarben, obwohl die Pigmente nicht so fein zermalt werden können. PVA-Farben können mit Wasser verdünnt werden, sind aber nach dem Trocknen wasserfest." "The sculptor" by Lars Tiller is a reproduction of a painting, it is not a drawing. I had a look at the content of the categories now. It looks OK to me! Thank you! Kjersti L. 17:49, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
you're welcome and thanks for the good explanation :) - --Sjokolade (talk) 13:37, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Stabbur vs. loft[edit]

Ifølge Norsk Folkemuseum er Berdalsloftet et loft, ikke et stabbur: http://www.norskfolkemuseum.no/no/utstillinger/friluftsmuseet/Oscar-IIs-Samling/Hovestua/ - mvh 4ing (talk) 11:19, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Hei, ja jeg har sett det, men Berdalsloft har ikke utvendig trappa og står på stolper, det er kjennetegn for (til?) et stabbur. Her er en artikkel om loft-bygningstypen. mvh --Sjokolade (talk) 11:33, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Trappa er utenfor buret, men er skjult av svalen. I stabbur er trappa inni buret. Berdalsloftet står på samme type stabber og sviller som Tveitoloftet som er avbildet på siden du lenker til ovenfor. - 4ing (talk) 12:02, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
ja vel, da gjorde jeg en feil. Takk for hjelpen. --Sjokolade (talk) 12:15, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Jeg er ingen ekspert på temaet, men har erfart at det kan være vanskelig å skille mellom loft og stabbur for en amatør. nowp skriver da også "En loftsbygning må ikke forveksles med et stabbur, selv om det ikke alltid er lett å se forskjell". Ellers vil jeg gjerne takke deg for grundig jobb med kategorisering av norske emner. - 4ing (talk) 12:27, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
vær så god. Det er virkelig vanskelig, på grunn av ulike bygningsstikker og fordi man har enderet noen over tiden. Mange hilsner --Sjokolade (talk) 12:39, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Aha! Jeg kan kommunisere med deg på norsk. Så bra! Jeg ser at du bruker mye av din tid her inne til å legge nye kategorier på opplastede filer. Det er som regel bra, så blir bildene lettere å finne - for flere, men kategoriene bør helst være korrekte og relevante, det er du sikkert enig i! :) Disse stabburene (som de kalles i bygda. Loft brukes ikke lokalt om disse), er ikke "medieval": File:Nordre Ekre 10.JPG. Kjersti L. 18:43, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

hm... det er vanskelig, da kategori "loft" var ikke så god og man blandet det med kategori "lofts". Har du en idé om et godt navn? Mange hilsner --Sjokolade (talk) 20:34, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Gunnerus biblioteket - feil norsk, feil navn[edit]

Hei, Gunnerusbiblioteket (ett ord) er et av de tolv bibliotekene under NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket. Hvis du vil opprette en ny kategori for Gunnerusbiblioteket, må du for det første skrive det i ett ord, for det andre fjerne NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket som kategori under de bildene som får Gunnerusbiblioteket som kategori. Gunnerusbiblioteket må ligge i kategori NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket. Kjersti L. 11:36, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

ups... takk for hjelpen --Sjokolade (talk) 11:38, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Ikke forandre til gal kategori![edit]

Hei, jeg skjønner at du vil ha en "smalere", mer presis kategori på denne: File:Mural 2 Martin Enevold Thømt.JPG, men for det første er ikke fresken inne i biblioteket, for det andre er det ikke noe som heter Hovedbiblioteket NTNU. Den gangen fresken ble malt, het biblioteket Hovedbiblioteket, men da eksisterte ikke NTNU ennå, kun NTH. At du vil flytte den til HovedBYGNINGEN NTNU(med små bokstaver i Hovedbygningen, selvsagt) er helt OK. Den kan forsåvidt også ha NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket som tilleggskategori, ettersom teksten henspiller på vår inntreden i biblioteket. Kjersti L. 11:52, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

har du et problem med navnet Hovedbibliotek (NTNU)? I beskrivelsen står Hovedbibliotek og den er i Hovedbygningen som hører til NTNU - NTH ikke eksistere lenger. --Sjokolade (talk) 12:09, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
This is the precise and correct category: "Category:Interior of Hovedbygningen (NTNU)" I cannot see Hovedbiblioteket anywhere in the description? Hovedbygningen, on the other hand, =The main building, is mentioned. The mural was painted in the main hall of HovedBYGNINGEN, not HovedBIBLIOTEKET, above the entrance to the library, which was the main library 100 years ago, when it was painted. Kjersti L. 12:13, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
It is in the hall next to where I sit and work right now! :D Kjersti L. 12:14, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
oh this was a missunderstanding, I displaced the murals meanwhile to hovedbygningen but I thought you worried of the name of the category too... sorry just level no-2. Nevertheless nice to improve my skills :). hilsen --Sjokolade (talk) 12:30, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

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.

File:NTNU UB Fine art library 2.jpg[edit]

Hello again, Sjokolade. I understand that you spend most of your time on Commons adding, changing - and sometimes removing - categories to files uploaded by others (at least by me!). I do not always agree with what you choose to do, but as long as your changes help people find the photos, I do not argue with you, although I have learnt that one should not create new categories when there are less than say 10-15 photos relevant for that category.

The file I have used as a headline for this message to you, now has both "shelves in Norway" and "shelves"., added by you. I take it you are going to remove one of them? (I wonder how relevant the category "shelves in Norway" is - to anybody, but it's OK, if you insist. )

Sometimes you add more specific categories (like "residential buildings ..." instead of my "buildings ..."). That is, of course, an improvement, but I ask you not to remove categories that I have given the files I have uploaded, without considering if there is a reason for my choice. The files are uploaded for a specific reason, and there is also a reason for the categories. In this case: "NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket". The idea is that all the NTNU UB libraries should be tagged with this category, so you can get a list showing both exterior and interior of all the libraries together. I therefore put it back again, and ask you not to remove it. Kjersti L. 22:41, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

hi Kjersti, I did not removed the category as you think. The fine art library is located in Industribygget, therefore I categorised the Industribygget as a head-category with NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket. So everything is fine - now you can find all photos of industribygget and the library photos are collected to. Maybe you wonder why I look up the the photos but if you have a look yourself, you'll find a lot of them uncategorized or in wrong or not very specific categories. If you search for a specific building for example there are a lot categories where it could get lost iwhen the filename or description is missing. Maybe you find it in History of... or historical images or very specific category but not connected to the country (so mostly you have then to search in 1000 of photos). Furthermore you have a chance to find it in Architecture of,,, or by architecture style, maybe in "city by date" and so on. I hope you understand my intension a little bit better now. If I mede a mistake or you have a better idea you can talk to me. You know your city better than me. mvh --Sjokolade (talk) 04:20, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Sjokolade.:I have no problems understanding your good intentions, as you explained them, and I applaud you (most of the times) and say: Keep up the good work! The changes you have made concerning Industribygget are not entirely logical to me, though. The building contains both commercial firms and organizations; areas for NTNU - Faculty of architecture and fine art - and for NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket. The way the Industribygget files are categorized now, you will not find the building as one of the NTNU campuses. (Maybe that should be a category?) :) Kjersti L. 08:23, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
aha at least the penny's dropped! The Industribygget is categorized as a sub-category of "NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket", cause I thought there is just the library of architecture and fine arts. (NTNU Trondheim → NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket → Industribygget.) If there is, as you said (I didn't know that), the faculty of architecture and fine arts it needs to be categorized as a sub-cat of NTNU Trondheim (which campus is it?). As so long it was in good order to me (building and building interior together = not out of the common run → not many photos; offices and NTNU not mixup until now → more photos = more sub-cats). Do you wish a sub-cat for the library right now? --Sjokolade (talk) 17:38, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
(Obviously, I was thrown out while writing to you. But what follows here, is written by Kjersti L.): This takes time, Sjokolade, for both you and me - and I prefer editing articles to categorizing photos while online in this timeconsuming society! :) Therefore you don't always get prompt replies from me, but here goes:

As the collection of photos grows, the need for subcategories also grows, and sometimes some of the files that have been uploaded before, are not moved to the new, more specific subcategory - then the new subcategories are not as useful as they could be... Big job!

You ask if I want a subcategory for the library, I suppose you mean the art lib.? Maybe it is OK that it has NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket as its category for now? I see that some of the libraries have their own subcategories - others have not. Not always logical, as the number of photos - so far - is almost the same for them. If you like, you may create subcategories for all of them - or none?! Whichever solution you prefer: "Dora, Trondheim‎" should not be a subcategory of NTNU Universitetsbiblioteket. It should be replaced by "Dorabiblioteket". "Dora, Trondheim" may very well be a category, but this German bunker from WWII contains both national and local archives and other organizations, in addition to the NTNU UB library "Dorabiblioteket" and the NTNU Main Archive.

You ask what campus the Industribygget activities belong to. I have forwarded your question to a person at NTNU, as they seem to have changed the campus names, due to the development of an interactive map solution, "Mazemap". There it is called "Solsiden" - and includes both the activities in Industribygget and in Dokkhuset (mainly a concert arena). In an older map of the NTNU campuses it is simply called "Kunstakademiet". It would - as I wrote last time - probably be a good idea to have a subcategory (under Category:NTNU, Trondheim) for all the campuses, and I will forward his reply when I receive it. Summer holiday time, you know. Kjersti L. 13:38, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Kjersti, now I tried my very best to sort out the photos. I found a map of the campus locations on NTNU website and collected the university buildings by campuses. Afterwards I looked through the photos of the libraries. If the library is just part of a building with further functions, just the photo of the library interior is part of the collection. Therefore Valgrinda campus was sorted out. Except the photos of buildings which are discribed where the library is located and you can see it on the photo. Have a nice day --Sjokolade (talk) 11:04, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

File:NTNU UB Marine Technology Library 1.jpg[edit]

Hm … there is so much explaining to do, when you change categories ... This time: MARINTEK is not the same as Marinteknisk senter. MARINTEK is not an NTNU dept, but of SINTEF, and uses some of the offices/labs in Marinteknisk senter. I understand that you read Norwegian, so I quote, from the article NTNU Tyholt: "NTNU-avdelingene og -sentrene på Tyholt har geografisk nærhet til, og et nært samarbeid med, Norsk Marinteknisk Forskningsinstitutt AS (MARINTEK), et selskap i SINTEF-gruppen." In other words, giving the photos of Marinteknisk senter the category MARINTEK is not correct. I have seen that the uploader sometimes has given the photos names like "Marintek", when the photo actually shows Marinteknisk senter, but that is, as you understand now, not correct. Kjersti L. 11:20, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done you said they uses offices/labs in the building therefore I made a sub cat. If you think it's not necessary just delete the cat-link. Thank you --Sjokolade (talk) 12:22, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

File:Lille Sølvbergtorget Stavanger.jpg[edit]

Hei igjen, Sjokolade. For meg ser det ut som du har satt inn både kategorier og subkategorier for denne filen!? Kanskje er du ikke ferdig med arbeidet ennå, men jeg har filen på min overvåkningsliste - og fikk opp endringene:

Kategori: "Go'dagen (Kånå) må være en subkategori under "Sculptures by Tone Thiis Schjetne" og "Sculptures by Tone Thiis Schjetne" en subkategori under "Tone Thiis Schjetne" Kategori: 1983 sculptures in Norway er en subkategori under "1983 sculptures".

Her har du vel "overkategorisert" litt? 129.241.221.104 08:23, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Hei, ja da har du rett, men det har systemet :) Der er nå ikke nok bilder for den een eller annen kategori. Så kan det være at der komme mer bilder av Go'dagen da kann vi lage kategori for denne skulptur under kategori Sculptures by Tone Thiis Schjetne. På den annen side kan der kommer mer bilder av skupturer fra Schjente. Så hvis alle kategorier er rødt, jeg lager mer kategorier enn nødvendig. Takk for å passer opp :) Mange hilsner --Sjokolade (talk) 08:53, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Beklager, Sjokolade. Det var jeg som skrev forrige innlegg. Trodde jeg var pålogget! Kjersti L. 14:05, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Fem kommuner i Finnmark[edit]

Hei, Sjokolade og god søndag! Jeg ser at du har flyttet fem av kommunene i Finnmark fra bare kommunenavnet til navnet med municipality etter seg. Det gjelder Alta, Hammerfest, Hasvik, Karasjok og Kautokeino. Det er 19 fylker i Norge hvorav Finnmark er det ene og per i dag har Norge 428 kommuner. Alle andre norske kommunekategorier på Commons har kun selve kommunenavnet som kategorinavn med unntak av noen få som f.eks Category:Rana, Norway, hvor Norway er lagt til for å skille kategorien fra Category:Rana om froskene. Alta het også Alta, Norway

Det er en enorm jobb om alle norske kommunekategorier skal flyttes og jeg tror en slik endring bør tas opp på tinget og i såfall utføres av en bot. Jeg tenker at det i stedet er bedre om jeg endrer kategoriene tilbake til de opprinnelige. Er det OK for deg? Hilsen --Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 11:12, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Hei, Anne-Sofie, takk, jeg håper du har også en fin dag. Ja det kan du gjøre. Jeg startet det, for å skille den fra landsbyer og byer. Det var ikke altid så klart. En annen ting var, av og til navner er ..., Norway og ..., fylkenavnet eller annet. Men jeg ser at den er en stor oppgave, og det er ikke nød til å gjøre det. Jeg fant det bare litt mer elegant. Hilsen --Sjokolade (talk) 11:58, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Det er greit, da gjør jeg det. Takk for svar! Hilsen --Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 12:16, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Bergen[edit]

Hi! What is the reason for renaming the "<YEAR> in Bergen" categories to "<YEAR> in Bergen, Norway"? Could you point any discussion about this change? I know, there are places named "Bergen" other than Bergen, Norway, but they seem to be much smaller/of less significance than Bergen, Norway, and at least some of them are probably named after Bergen, Norway. ––Apalsola tc 11:58, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Hyvää päivää, yes I know the importance of Bergen, Norway but it seems there are many people who don't. In the main category Bergen I found a lot of pictures from all over the world f.e from USA, Netherlands and Germany. So in the long term it will be better to sort them in a specific category and use of disambiguations-sites, so that the photographer has to decide which place is meant. --Sjokolade (talk) 12:26, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
