User:Karelj

Passt du mal bitte auf Image:Borassus aethiopum 0098.jpg, Image:Borassus aethiopum 0073.jpg, Image:Borassus aethiopum 0060.jpg und Image:Borassus aethiopum 0035.jpg auf. User:Karelj "vandalisiert" hier ein wenig, er glaubt das es sich hier um exakte Dublikate handelt. In wirklichkeit sind es leicht verschiedene Bilder, die einen anderen Ausschnitt oder Schärfe haben. --Atamari 20:43, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Manchmal wird zu langsam manchmal wird zu schnell gelöscht

Es wurde mal zu schnell gelöscht, so dass man nicht mehr kontrollieren kann:
Frage: Image:1014196-Compound near Nema-The Gambia.jpg wurde gelöscht, ist es wirklich doppelt gewesen, dieser Filenamen erscheint mir aber besser geeignet zu sein als Image:2521448-Things To Do-The Gambia.jpg
dito bei Image:1917178-Travel Picture-The Gambia.jpg image:2521398-Serrekunda-The Gambia.jpg
und bei Image:2521491-Local Customs-The Gambia.jpg Image:1915316-tailor in Banjul-The Gambia.jpg
noch interessanter die Frage: sind alle Informationen (insbesondere Kategorien) übertragen? --Atamari 00:29, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Die Motive sind alle identisch. Bei einem Bild fehlten zwei Kategorien, sonst war alles da. --::Slomox:: >< 15:06, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

SVG maps

Hello. Thank you very much for uploading such wonderful SVG maps of African countries. Hope you will upload also such maps for countries of other continents. Very appreciated. Bis bald. - Darwinek 19:30, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. But I am sorry, that's all I have. I found the geospatial data on the Uganda Bureau of Statistics website and created those maps of it. But they had only data on African countries. If I had data on other countries, creating maps would be no problem (it's just a bit formatting the data). So, if you know a source... --::Slomox:: >< 00:18, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

I am making flag-maps from your svg outlines, see [1] and [2] for example. I would like to create such flag-maps for the rest of the world + for some subnational divisions like the U.S. states. I do not know how such geospatial data should look like, but I found some websites which should have them: Australia and USA-1, USA-2, hope some data for Australian territories/states and the U.S. states can be found there. Please, take a look if you can find desired data there. Very appreciated. Thank you. - Darwinek 21:52, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

What I need are the coordinates of all the points which make up the outline of the country when connected. I had a look on the pages, but did not find the needed data. But it was only a quick look, cause I have not much time to thoroughly look at it. If you could provide a direct link to such data, I could make the maps. --::Slomox:: >< 00:50, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
For the US there are many SVG maps around on Commons. Should be no problem. And for Australia too. --::Slomox:: >< 01:00, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I have created all the maps for Australia and its states. Please be aware, that the quality is less than for the African countries. The data in the source text of the SVG does not correspond to the coordinates (only relevant for re-use). For Northern Territory and New South Wales there were no maps of the Local Government Areas, so I had to take the data from Image:AUS_locator_map.svg. This two images are of lesser quality. --::Slomox:: >< 02:27, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks again. I will try to find precise data you demand, maybe I will also write e-mails to proper institutions. If such detailed data for Africa are available, then it could be surely obtained also for the rest of the world. Is there any exact technical name for the dataset you need? - Darwinek 22:50, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

I actually have to admit: I have no idea, whether there is a special technical name for it ;-) Please be aware: I am no expert in any way for anything geo-related. I actually do nothing else than using a text editor and the replace function to re-format the data so it can be rendered as SVG. There's not much knowledge or magic involved ;-) --::Slomox:: >< 19:13, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

OK. I've found something, data for the U.S., Canada and North America. Please take a look at it, hope it will work. All data are free, including Canadian ones.

Thank you very much. - Darwinek 20:09, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello, I think you uploaded the original of this file. The author status isn't completed. Were you the author, and if so could you complete the field? I have made some derivative maps based on this, but can't upload them because the author of the original is not shown.Meddlin' Pedant 22:25, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

User:F l a n k e r is the author of the original Image:Regione Abruzzo.svg and User:Helix84 created maps for the other Italian regions based on Image:Regione Abruzzo.svg. I just completed the collection with the blank map. --::Slomox:: >< 00:45, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

bitte füg in das template nicht ständig wieder Plattdeutsch ein, das soll ein Übersetzungstemplate sein als Hilfe für Leute die z.B. kein Englisch sprechen. Dabei muß man auch gewisse Kompromisse eingehen weil wir gewiss nicht alle über 200 Sprachen und Dialekte da unterbringen können. Ich behaupte mal, dass die Menge der Leute die ausschließlich Plattdeutsch aber kein Holländisch/Englisch/Deutsch sprechen gegen 0 geht. -- Gorgo (talk) 08:30, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

localiseSignatue

Hallo Slomox, hilf mir mal auf die spruenge, was genau macht diese neue Funktion in common.js. Sie fuegt eine extra klasse signature-talk-de (o.ae.) an. Was mache ich mit der? --Dschwen (talk) 12:22, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Mit der wird die Signatur lokalisiert. Per CSS wird dann der entsprechende lokalisierte Text mit dem Hinweis auf die Diskussionsseite eingeblendet. Also talk, wenn du für Commons Englisch als Interface-Sprache eingestellt hast oder Diskussion, wenn du Deutsch eingestellt hast. ---Slomox (talk) 16:51, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Ich seh da immernoch bloss talk (Konqueror, cache purged). --Dschwen ( ) 16:57, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Koennte daran liegen, dass in den Signaturen weder ein span tag vorkommt, noch eine CSS Klasse signature-talk. Woher hast Du denn den code, und wo hat der jemals funktioniert? --Dschwen ( ) 17:01, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Es funktionierte zwischenzeitlich nicht, da Giggy das in Mediawiki:Signature revertiert hatte (erst hatte er aus optischen Gründen Leerzeichen entfernt, was leider dazu führte, dass die ganze Sache nicht mehr funktionierte, woraufhin er komplett revertierte). Deine Signatur, die du grade gemacht hast, sollte aber nach Cache leeren lokalisiert sein. --Slomox ( ) 17:09, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Jo, stimmt. Da ist jetzt aber noch ein unschoenes Leerzeichen vor Diskussion. --Dschwen ( ) 17:23, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
aha. langsam schaue ich da durch. Das nbsp ist wohl noetig, da im span tag sonst kein textnode erzeugt wird. Hmmm. vielleicht kann mans mit dem javascript entfernen. Ich probier mal rum. --Dschwen ( ) 17:26, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Ok, lass mich mal nen Vorschlag machen. Die jetzige loesung hat ein paar Macken, was sowohl die Optik (leerzeichen) als auch accessibility (in textbasierten browsern erscheint nun gar kein talk link mehr).
Entferne die CSS-magich fuer die signature-talk klasse komplett, und hardcode talk in das span tag. Dann kann das nbsp auch weg. Im Javascript wird dann einfach der default text weggeloescht bevor die signature-talk-lang klasse gesetzt wird. Dann hat die chose ein ordentliches fallback. --Dschwen ( ) 17:31, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, im Firefox funktioniert es schonmal. In Konqueror noch nicht... --Dschwen (talk) 17:39, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Ok, im IE klappts auch. Das ist erstmal "gut genug"(tm) ich versuch mal herauszufinden warum Konqueror sich noch straeubt, aber so siehts schonmal besser aus (kein leerzeichen und kein leerer link in textbasierten browsern). --Dschwen (talk) 17:49, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Please, see my note on MediaWiki talk:Signature#Talk link localisation (and my change of MediaWiki:Common.js). Thanks --Mormegil (talk) 20:41, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Mandala bangkok.jpg

Thank you for notifying, but I am not the uploader. I have only checked, whether the licence on Flickr matched the licence on the image description page (and it did). I can not help in investigating the original author. I guess, even the Flickr user who made that image can not. Do you really think, there is any chance, that the painter of a mandala on a Bangkok temple wall (or wherever they place mandalas in Thailand, I have no idea...) will sue the Wikimedia foundation on copyright infringement? He most likely will be happy and proud that his piece of religious work will be shown to so many people in countries far, far away. Maybe this mandala is even PD-old, who knows? The question for the original author may be formally correct, but if we go for common sense, I very much doubt, that we should delete this image. --Slomox (talk) 19:59, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Hello Slomox,

  • Do you have any idea why this picture was uploaded on Commons ? Is it uploaded randomly by the Flickrlicker robot, without purpose ?
  • If we have no idea what this picture actually depicts, does it pass COM:SCOPE ? In particular "Must be realistically useful for an educational purpose" ? Can a teacher teach pupills by saying "Well, this is from Bangkok, but don't ask me what it is" ? Teofilo (talk) 20:45, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Commons:Licensing says "The following restrictions must not apply to the image or other media file: Use by Wikimedia only (...)" : this means that any kind of people may use the picture, including for commercial use. Would a bouddhist painter from Bangkok appreciate that his painting is used as a pattern on mugs or throw-away paper plates ? Teofilo (talk) 21:11, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
We don't know exactly what it is, but according to my personal assessment 99 % of all pictures uploaded to Commons have a description that is clearly improvable. We at least know, that it is a mandala from Bangkok. That's not much, but enough to be able to use it in some contexts in a meaningful way.
Well, I don't know much about the mentality of Eastern Asian Buddhist religious artists (I don't even know, whether this kind of art is regarded art in Thailand, maybe they regard it as craft without any special level of creativity, I don't know exactly), but if I try to put myself in the mindset of the creator, I wouldn't mind about throw-away paper plates. I don't think, that fits the Buddhist mentality. I guess, they are more like: weirdo westerners... But if they want to, let them do whatever they like. Perhaps I'm completely wrong, I don't know. But I'm positive, I'm not completely wrong ;-)
Well, the rules ask for the authors of 2D artworks in images being known, so if you want to carry forward the deletion process, there is few I can do about it. But my advice is: if it is unlikely that anybody will sue us ever and if the image is hosted on Commons since three years ... just leave the image untouched. It won't hurt anybody --Slomox (talk) 22:28, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Hello. I'm the author of Image:Chromium zhwiki.png. Could you help delete the first version of the image? I have updated it by uploading the second version. The first version is not used any more. Thank you in advance.--百楽兎 (talk) 04:24, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

There's no need to delete old versions. It's completely normal, that old, unused versions are kept in the version history. Old versions are only deleted if there are special reasons like privacy or copyright concerns. --Slomox (talk) 04:29, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
I got it. It indeed contains some privacy of mine. So please help delete for me. Thank you. --百楽兎 (talk) 04:33, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay, now I see the difference. I have no idea, what the Chinese signs are saying ;-) but it seems to be okay. --Slomox (talk) 04:40, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
