Your assistance please...[edit]

Hi!

I saw you removed Category:Skylines of Seattle from a bunch of files. When you removed that category were you aware of the steps I took to initiate a discussion over renaming Category:Seattle skylines to Category:Skylines of Seattle?

If so, was there a reason why you didn't weigh in with an opinion as to why that renaming shouldn't take place?

Some of my correspondents can be really unpleasant with demands that categories be renamed, in order to "be consistent with other cats". Most cities have a Category:Skylines of Foo or a Category:Skyline of Foo not a Category:Foo skylines. I don't care which name we choose as the parent name, so long as the other name redirects to the basename. I had to waste time searching for the right category name.

The {{move}} template I chose sounds like it is the simplest way to initiate a renaming, that preserves the original revision history in the right place.

If you didn't have any actual objections to the name itself, and your only objection was that they were red-links, can I assume you have no objection to restoring that category? Alternately, if you do have an objection, could you state it at Category talk:Seattle skylines? Geo Swan (talk) 11:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

George! You are such an idiot. Secondarywaltz (talk) 02:45, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

MLS[edit]

Hello there. You wrote on my talk page saying that File:MLS logo (2014).png is up for deletion as you have uploaded a vector version found in this PDF. I have no objections to the deletion, though I ask a small favour: could you also upload the LAFC, Atlanta 2017 and MLS 20th season emblems on the same PDF too? I'd do it myself but I'm never sure on SVG uploads here and since you seem to know your stuff, I figured I'd ask. Cheers, Malpass93 (talk) 13:31, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

@Malpass93: I'll upload them as soon as I'm not confined to a mobile device. Thanks for pointing that out for me. SounderBruce 17:39, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

File:Houston METRORail East End Line Maintenance Base.png[edit]

You're right, I didn't check closely for the image being Flickr-washed. Thanks for catching that. Conifer (talk) 03:08, 27 May 2015 (UTC)


Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi SounderBruce, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

Capitol Hill Station & permissions[edit]

You recently updated a bunch of photos such as File:Photo by Don Wilson Capitol Hill Station 2016 (25161940723).jpg that say in their description "To request permission to use this photo, contact Darrius Wells at Darrius.wells@soundtransit.org or 206.689.3381". That seems to sit oddly with a CC-By-2.0 license, though I guess it could relate to using the image in manners incompatible with that license. Still, it seems like putting these on Commons may go against the photographer's (ill-expressed) intent. Can you follow up on this (probably make the contact)? Thanks. - Jmabel ! talk 00:19, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Looks like an error on my part (in letting the automated tool run pretty much unimpeded) and on Sound Transit's (if they indeed did not want these images CC-BY-2.0). Not all of the photos on the Special Collections account are licensed as CC-BY-2.0 (quite a few non-commercial and All rights reserved licenses), so it may be intended as open use. I've notified the listed e-mail offering guidance. (Though I really hope we can keep a few of the photos, especially the portraits and construction pictures; most everything else is replaceable). SounderBruce 01:47, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, Bruce. They're good photos, I hope we get to keep some. - Jmabel ! talk 15:39, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear SounderBruce,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.

Thanks,
-- Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 09:43, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Sounder commuter rail categorization[edit]

Just a heads up: I've created Category:Sounder commuter rail trains, as I've been doing for several other commuter rail systems (MBTA and VRE among them). All images of Sounder trains in revenue service should be categorized in there (as well as the appropriate rolling stock and station categories). This allows one-stop shopping for images of Sounder trains, but keeps Category:Sounder commuter rail as an uncrowded top-level category. Thanks once again for all the hard work you've done in finding good images of Sounder! Cheers, Pi.1415926535 (talk) 16:28, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Your VFC installation method is deprecated[edit]

Hello SounderBruce, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well. A detailed explanation can be found here. Important: To prevent problems please remove the old VFC installation code from your common.js and instead enable the VFC gadget in your preferences. Thanks! --VFC devs (q) 16:23, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
