Duplicate category[edit]

Hello, can you help me with Category:Budapesti Ferences Mária Missziós nővérek temploma and Category:Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, Budapest categories. I think these are duplicate cats. I think one is good, but Hungarian, other name is not really pass to the article. Sincerely, - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 21:24, 29 January 2020 (UTC)[]

Interesting. I've never heard of it before, but judging from en:Franciscan Missionaries of Mary is the proper name of the order. What about Category:Franciscan Missionaries of Mary church, Budapest ? - Themightyquill (talk) 21:32, 29 January 2020 (UTC)[]
OK for me. - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 09:27, 30 January 2020 (UTC)[]

Category:Signs of motorways in Hungary and Category:Motorway signs in Hungary[edit]

Hello, can You help me. Duplicate (or Not?) - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 15:43, 5 February 2020 (UTC)[]

Yes, surely duplicate. The only other "country" category in Category:Signs of motorways is Category:Motorway signs in New Zealand (which is also in Category:Motorway signs by country. I'll move it. - Themightyquill (talk) 08:15, 6 February 2020 (UTC)[]

Closing CFD[edit]

If you close CFD and mention it in corresponding talk page, then the policy (Commons:Categories_for_discussion#Closing_a_discussion) says that proper is to use construction "{{Archive box|*[[Commons:Categories for discussion...". If done so, less info pollution in talk pages. One example: Category talk:Mísia (Portuguese singer)--Estopedist1 (talk) 07:32, 19 February 2020 (UTC)[]

@Estopedist1: Firstly, that page is not marked as official policy. Second, I did that for many years, but I noticed that others weren't. I don't see "pollution" in talk pages as a problem, since they are almost entirely unused. By contrast, linking to an archive makes the discussion less visible. But maybe I should propose a change on that page. - Themightyquill (talk) 09:06, 19 February 2020 (UTC)[]
@Joshbaumgartner: also. The caption of CFD says "This discussion of one or several categories is now closed. Please do not make any edits to this archive." In Wikimedia projects, archived texts are usually not visible, but are moved to the archive box ({{Archive box}})--Estopedist1 (talk) 09:16, 19 February 2020 (UTC)[]
@Estopedist1: I don't use the {{Archive box}} since it seems kind of an extra step that is not needed. Category talk pages are almost always empty or minimally used at most, so having and archive of them seems a step too much to me. I simply directly link the discussion on the talk page so it is immediately there to see for anyone clicking on the discussion tab. I figure the spirit of step 5 at Commons:Categories_for_discussion#Closing_a_discussion is really just to make sure any visitor to that category can quickly see that there was once a CfD held on it and have a way to find that CfD to avoid having to repeat old discussions over and over, and that is satisfied by simply adding the discussion to the talk page itself. If that is a problem, then I'm happy to discuss a better process. Josh (talk) 19:11, 19 February 2020 (UTC)[]
Are you arguing for wikimedia-wide consistency over local functionality? - Themightyquill (talk) 09:21, 19 February 2020 (UTC)[]
no, every Wikimedia project has its features. But see, eg this one Category talk:2 groups. I think better is with {{Archive box}}--Estopedist1 (talk) 18:58, 19 February 2020 (UTC)[]
@Estopedist1: I think that one is a good example, but exactly why I do not use the archive box process, because doing so would mean you would only have an archive box and would have to click there on two separate links to read the two relevant discussions, versus just including them directly as I did in order that the user can see both immediately without having to dig any further.

QuickCfdClose Gadget[edit]

I've found closing CfDs to be a bit of an arduous multi-step process, so I started a gadget for streamlining the process. Since you participate in CfD frequently, I thought this might be helpful to you. Currently it only handles the closing of the discussion page itself, but when I have time I will expand it to some of the other repetitive tasks like removing the notification templates from the affected categories. See User:BMacZero/QuickCfdClose. – BMacZero (🗩) 20:39, 27 March 2020 (UTC)[]

@BMacZero: Nice! Thank you! - Themightyquill (talk) 12:30, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[]

Am I pinging you?[edit]

I am responding to a lot of CfDs today and that means mentioning your name often in ways that probably don't require your attention. Am I pinging you when I do this? The documentation for {{U}} doesn't say. Very sorry if so. – BMacZero (🗩) 04:39, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[]

@BMacZero: Yes, using {{U}} does ping me, but I'm actually quite happy to be pinged. I try to watch discussions I participate in, but I don't always remember. - Themightyquill (talk) 09:07, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[]

Ireland[edit]

Hi! I notice you are fixing categories related to Ireland. That's great!

I created many of those years ago because of Commons:Batch uploading/Geograph. I'm not 100 % sure but I think the reason I created them as Ireland is because they had images from both The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland‎. (Some images could not be categorized by bot.)

I have no strong feelings about the categories. They could either be kept as a meta category with subcategories or they could be deleted once all the photos in them and split them up in one of the sub categories of Ireland.

I noticed that there are some categories like Category:Geography of Ireland by county so if anyone want meta categories I think they should be made like that instead.

Not sure if this post is of any use to you but now you know why they were created :-) --MGA73 (talk) 07:34, 31 March 2020 (UTC)[]

@MGA73: Thanks so much for your message! It's actually very good to know how they originated. I had never heard of Geograph before now. As per the discussion at Commons:Categories for discussion/2018/08/Category:Ireland, I think it makes to keep the general "in Ireland" category for some things, particularly culture, history and landforms that span both countries, but for things like buildings that are concretely in one country or the other, it makes sense to divide them. But using metacategories like Category:Geography of Ireland by county makes sense as well. Thanks again! - Themightyquill (talk) 08:35, 31 March 2020 (UTC)[]
I took a break so I never noticed the discussion you mention. I agree with you that we should put as much as possible in the two subcategories and only use "in Ireland" in a few cases. And happy the info was useful. --MGA73 (talk) 13:22, 31 March 2020 (UTC)[]

Mirroring[edit]

You were in a 2018 discussion over a particular category viability (seemingly unresolved), here. You therefore might be able to help me.

There are quite a number of files that show a recognized phenomenon, covered by a Wikipedia page that seems to apply to a cat that appears not to exist (I may have missed it of course), e.g: this. I suggest such files could be under something like 'Mirroring (behaviour)' or 'Mirroring (posture)'. Human (or animal) mirroring (gesture or sound), usually unconscious (sometimes conscious), is a social device providing a positive or negative bond between two or more people. This appears allied to 'Mimicry' and 'Mirroring'. Mirroring seems contentious, as has been pointed out. Mimicry doesn't entirely fit as the object is not to pretend to be something else. 'Imitation' doesn't quite fit either as this can be done by one entity or can mean something pretending to be something else, i.e. a fake. It might fit under the cat trees of 'Imitation', 'Reflections', 'Social psychology' and/or 'Gestures' or any of their sub cats, although none of these seem to quite fit comfortably. Do you have any ideas on the viability of such a cat and what name and which tree it might fall under? Acabashi (talk) 09:44, 25 June 2020 (UTC)[]

Need help to Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by city and Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by town[edit]

I ask your help. I nomineted for deletion Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary in Pécs because none of the content files passed to the category. The category creator started to crop some files for his right! Even so the files 90 percent not fit to there! This user also created 75 different categories Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by town most of it only with one or two pics or example Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary in Kisvárda (37 files) my opinion none of them is a 'flag photo'! And it is same generally all of the Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by city (16 categories!) there is example Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary in Miskolc with 176 files and only circa 3 of them real 'flag photo'. It is not vandalism? My opinion all subcat of Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary under county level means town(s), city(s), district(s) circa 100 categories should be delete! I think if 90-95 percent of these photos unrelated to the category the answer 'I will crop for to fit',-like here,-is not the good solution! BTW: In France this user create same situation see discuss here. What can I do? I should the 'fit photos' (1-2% of all) moving the cats to county level category and others removing? Nominate the over 100 categories for delete or? I'd like to know your opinion. Sincerely, - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 17:00, 30 June 2020 (UTC)[]

I just wanted to let you know. Until the CFD is complete, more and more incorrect categorizations to occur!

Please participate in the Universal Code of Conduct consultation on Wikimedia Commons![edit]

Dear Themightyquill

Thank you for your hard work to create the sum of all knowledge that is freely sharable to every single human being across the world. As our diverse community grows, we need a guideline that will help all of our work collectively and constructively where everyone feels safe, welcomed, and part of a team. That is why the Wikimedia movement is working on establishing a global guideline called the Universal Code of Conduct, often referred to as UCoC.

After the months-long policy consultation, we have prepared a policy (available in many languages) that has been ratified by the Board of Trustees. We’re currently in the second phase of the process. During this round of consultation, we want to discuss the implementation of this policy. As a member of the functionary team of Wikimedia Commons, your opinion on enforcement is of great value. We want to hear from you on how this policy can be enforced on the Wikimedia Commons community and what might be needed to do so. There are a few enforcement questions so you can easily outline your answers based on them. Please do not hesitate to bring any more questions/challenges you think are not yet discussed.

The discussion is taking place on Commons:Universal Code of Conduct consultation. You can also share your thoughts by replying to this message (Please ping me so I get notified), posting your message on my talk page. I am aware that some thoughts cannot be expressed publicly, so you can always share your opinion by emailing me as well.

As a valued member of the Commons community, please share your thoughts, ideas, and experiences that relate to UCoC. Let us know what needs to be improved so we can build a more friendly and cooperative space to increase editor engagement and retention of new users.

Wikimedia projects are governed by you. So, it is you who needs to step up to ensure a safe, comfortable, and pleasant working environment.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Please take a short survey regarding UCoC[edit]

Hello Themightyquill,

I would like to inform you that we now have a survey in place to take part in the UCoC consultation. It is not a long one and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. You can take the survey even if you have already participated in the on-wiki consultation. It has a different set of questions and allows you to participate anonymously and privately.

As a member of the Commons functionaries, your opinion is especially essential. Please click here to participate in the survey.

You are still welcome to participate in the on-wiki discussions. If you prefer you can have your say by sending me an email. You can also drop me an email if you want to have a one-to-one chat.

Categories related to Ireland[edit]

Hi! I have noticed that you are moving some categories related to Ireland. For example Category:Swimming pools in Ireland --> Category:Swimming pools in the Republic of Ireland.

I do not know if it was discussed somewhere or if you are just renaming the categories. But I do not think that the old categories were wrong.

The categories related to Ireland are (or were) categorized like this:

Same with all other categories like that.

Instead of renaming categories you could create the categories for "Foo in the Republic of Ireland" to complete the category tree. --MGA73 (talk) 21:01, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[]

@MGA73: Yes, the discussion was here. You can see from the wikidata infoboxes that "Ireland" in this case is already referring to the Republic of Ireland, but the categories have been named in an ambiguous way. There are certain natural geographic and cultural categories that justify an "in Ireland" category (e.g. Category:Surnames from Ireland‎ or Category:Geology of Ireland‎), but sports venues are very clearly in either the RoI or in the UK. There's no need of an "in Ireland" category for basketball courts. -- Themightyquill (talk) 08:03, 15 February 2021 (UTC)[]
Okay. There is of course also the possibility that someone added the wikidata incorrect ;-) Anyway I just wanted to make sure that you were aware that there are categories for "Big Ireland". --MGA73 (talk) 19:21, 15 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Ireland / Republic of Ireland[edit]

Why do you persist in renaming "Ireland" categories as "Republic of Ireland" categories? You know by now that each RoI category has an automatic parent of "Ireland". You also know by now that each NI category has an automatic double parentage of "Ireland" and "UK". Please stop playing disruptive games. Laurel Lodged (talk) 15:10, 18 February 2021 (UTC)[]

@Laurel Lodged: Please see Commons:Categories for discussion/2018/04/Category:Ireland. There's no reason to have an ambiguous "in Ireland" for something which is clearly in either N. Ireland or in the Republic of Ireland. - Themightyquill (talk) 15:16, 20 February 2021 (UTC)[]
That decision was just wrong. It flies in the face of how categories are organised in Wikipedia. I will start a new discussion to reverse the ill-conceived decision.Laurel Lodged (talk) 15:31, 20 February 2021 (UTC)[]
Actually, that decision may not be as clear cut as the citation above seems to imply. There is, for example, this discussion: Commons:Categories for discussion/2018/08/Category:Ireland. One of the contributors there states: "Yes in most cases there should be a "Foo in Ireland" containing "Foo in the Republic of Ireland" and "Foo in Northern Ireland" ". This is certainly the correct position. Laurel Lodged (talk) 15:45, 20 February 2021 (UTC)[]
@Laurel Lodged: Please start a new discussion, and I'll hold off on any more deletions until it's resolved a second time. - Themightyquill (talk) 20:09, 21 February 2021 (UTC)[]
I've started the discussion but don't have time to fill it out. Will get back to it later. Laurel Lodged (talk) 08:51, 23 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Specific ship categories in Category:Categories by name (flat list)[edit]

I see that you added a number of individual ship categories, including Category:Lian (ship), to Category:Categories by name (flat list). I don't believe they belong there. Am I missing something? --Auntof6 (talk) 16:50, 22 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Just a mistaken click on my part. Thanks for pointing it out! I think I've fixed it now. - Themightyquill (talk) 21:22, 22 February 2021 (UTC)[]
No problem. I've done similar things! --Auntof6 (talk) 04:25, 23 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Images from Auckland Museum[edit]

Hi there! I was wondering if you would be able to take a look at the discussion at Commons:Categories for discussion/2019/10/Category:Images from Auckland Museum - I believe that a consensus has been reached around wanting to split the category into two at this point. Would you mind taking a look and seeing if this discussion can be closed? (I'd create a category myself, but creating and populating a hidden category is a little beyond my abilities at this stage!). --Prosperosity (talk) 03:08, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Why are you mass adding Category:Images from Auckland Museum when the consensus is to use a different category name? Please stop and finish the discussion at Commons:Categories for discussion/2019/10/Category:Images from Auckland Museum before doing any more mass edits. Multichill (talk) 09:51, 29 March 2021 (UTC)[]
@Multichill: Firstly, I don't think there was a clear consensus, except that people didn't care very much, and were okay with Auckland Museum. Second, the CFD has been stuck for over a year, and most people don't care about the category title, they just want the images split. Third, Category:Images from Auckland Museum is the existing category since 2017, not one I've created. They are going into the right place, whether or not it's named perfectly. I'm going to continue the mass copy. Once it's done, it's easy to rename the category and move the images if necessary. - Themightyquill (talk) 10:13, 29 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Fremont[edit]

Was there a consensus to move Category:Fremont, Seattle, Washington to Category:Fremont, Seattle? It goes against what we do for virtually every other neighborhood of Seattle (about 90 of them). - Jmabel ! talk 15:55, 11 April 2021 (UTC)[]

  • And even more so, was there a consensus to delete the name that fits the usual pattern rather than make it a cat redirect? This seems really odd. - Jmabel ! talk 15:56, 11 April 2021 (UTC)[]
@Jmabel: There was consensus to move it (Commons:Categories for discussion/2021/01/Category:Fremont, Washington) though I see now that your category was not tagged by the nominator, and I didn't look at the other neighbourhoods in Seattle before moving. Sorry for that. Seattle, Washington follows the pattern at en:Seattle, Washington. I can't imagine there are many "Neighborhood, City" combinations that exist in multiple states, so I find this existing pattern pretty weird, but if you want to move it back to Category:Fremont, Seattle, Washington, it's fine with me. - Themightyquill (talk) 17:23, 11 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Obviously, "Fremont, Washington" was someone's poor choice. It hasn't been a city of its own since Seattle annexed it in 1891.
It's not that it exists in multiple states. It's mostly that we settled on that pattern for Seattle neighborhoods early (like almost as soon as Commons categories were created). If you want to change all 90 categories, fine. Changing a small number of them seems like a really poor idea. Changing a small number of them and not leaving even a soft redirect from the one that fits the pattern of all the others seems like a terrible idea.
So which way would you rather go? Change 80+ other categories or change this one? Clearly the pattern should be consistent. - Jmabel ! talk 03:40, 12 April 2021 (UTC)[]
@Jmabel: It's a lot more than 80, because it's in about half the states in the US. It's usually consistent within each state, but not state to state. I've moved it back to Category:Fremont, Seattle, Washington for now. I'll have to decide if I want to nominate the whole Category:Neighbourhoods in the United States tree for discussion. -- Themightyquill (talk) 05:34, 12 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks. I presume that would be Category:Neighborhoods in the United States. - Jmabel ! talk 18:10, 12 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Deletion of dyke march (americas)[edit]

You deleted category dyke march (americas) with a reasoning "topless women (americas)".

As far as I know there was never a DR or CfD for the dyke march (americas) category.

But why is the cat deleted with a topless category resoning? While some participants of dyke marches do go topless, 99% do not. You wouldn't delete a "pride parade" category with a "nude cat" reasoning? (or without a DR or CfD at all, for that matter)

--C.Suthorn (talk) 15:00, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[]

  • @C.Suthorn: I assume you are referring to Category:Dyke March (Americas). Terribly named in any case: there are numerous "dyke marches" in various places in the Americas, many of which are not called "Dyke March" as a proper noun so shouldn't be capitalized. What did this even cover? - Jmabel ! talk 15:28, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Dyke Marches are traditionally held on the eve of a pride parade (but, espacially with covid, but also for other reasons a week or more before or after the pride parade or pride week, and often Dykes on Bikes do lead the march. The general motto of Dyke Marches is Lesbian Visibility (therefore the extra event complimantory to a pride parade) --C.Suthorn (talk) 15:58, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[]

@C.Suthorn: Thanks for your message. I'm well aware of what a Dyke March is and I certainly have no opposition to them or their inclusion on commons. I also didn't delete it with a "nude" reasoning. As far as I know, there is no such thing as a "nude" reasoning for deleting a category. I deleted it for the same reason stated in Commons:Categories for discussion/20/08/Category:Topless women in the Americas, which is why I included that link in the edit summary. The toplessness parent category was also its only link to the "Americas" category tree. "The Americas" is a supercontinent, not a continent. There's no more reason to group Dyke Marches by "in the Americas" than there is to group them by "in Eurasia". You'll not that we don't have Category:Demonstrations and protests in the Americas in Category:Demonstrations and protests by continent‎ , or Category:Parades in the Americas in Category:Parades by continent or Category:LGBT in the Americas in Category:LGBT by continent. If you want to great categories for North America and South America (though preferably in the format Category:Dyke March in North America or possibly Category:Dyke Marches in North America or Category:Dyke marches in North America) that's fine with me. - Themightyquill (talk) 07:21, 23 April 2021 (UTC)[]
At the moment I am aware of Dyke Marches in the Americas (2x North Amnerica, 1x South America, 0x Middle America) and in Europe (DACH, while there may have been one in London, but do not have a link). While it would make sense to have cats for Africa, Asia, Australia-Oceania once there are a number or subcats, at the moment it does make most sense to have cats for the Americas and Europe. it does not matter to me if they are Uppercase or Lowercase. However it is not ok to delete a cat without DR, CfD or other notice before, and it is not ok to give a reasoning of topless. I have seen that a tree of cats has been deleted that match the criteria of topless, but the DMAcat does not. I do not even know, why it actually was a subcat of the topless cats. --C.Suthorn (talk) 08:11, 23 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Creating Category:Dyke Marches by country would make a lot more sense than creating a "in the Americas" category which is totally unparalleled by anything similar. - Themightyquill (talk) 09:49, 23 April 2021 (UTC)[]
It is a wiki. I created Americas and Europe cat, everyone can replace it with a by country cat, but deleting it (without DR, CfD, or telling before) does not. If I had tought by country would make sense I had done so. --C.Suthorn (talk) 10:38, 23 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Television channels from/in[edit]

I'm wondering why the discussion was closed and the categories were changed when, from what I can tell, there wasn't a consensus yet. --Adamant1 (talk) 06:01, 13 June 2021 (UTC)[]

@Adamant1: You said, "On 'x of y from z', I don't have a problem with that." which I read as a compromise. We can go on arguing over in vs of, but the discussion has been open since 2018. If you're not opposed to of/from, why wouldn't we use that? - Themightyquill (talk) 08:24, 15 June 2021 (UTC)[]
I said I'd be fine with it "but" and then I added a bunch of reasons I wasn't into it afterwards. Then when you asked me I was fine with "from" instead of "in" I clearly said no. So what if it's been open since 2018? That doesn't mean a discussion just gets to default to whatever a single person wants before there's actually a consensus. Ultimately I would have liked there to be more opinions. Since it's not really a consensus if only two people are involved in the discussion and they disagree with each other. That said, I guess it doesn't ultimately matter anyway since the whole thing is massively screwed up and that isn't going to change just because one category is changed. Still though, I would have liked more opinions. I was hoping the original participates would say what they thought. I'm pretty sure both are still active. --Adamant1 (talk) 10:49, 15 June 2021 (UTC)[]

We need your feedback![edit]

Hello. Apologies if this message is not in your native language: please feel free to respond in the language of your choice. Thank you!

I am writing to you because we are looking for feedback for a new Wikimedia Foundation project, Structured Data Across Wikimedia (SDAW). SDAW is a grant-funded programme that will explore ways to structure content on wikitext pages in a way that will be machine-recognizable and -relatable, in order to make reading, editing, and searching easier and more accessible across projects and on the Internet. We are now focusing on designing and building image suggestion features for experienced users.

We have some questions to ask you about your experience with uploading images here on Wikimedia Commons and then adding them to Wikipedia. You can answer these questions on a specific feedback page on Mediawiki, where we will gather feedback. As I said, these questions are in English, but your answers do not need to be in English! You can also answer in your own language, if you feel more comfortable.

Once the collecting of feedback will be over, we will sum it up and share with you a summary, along with updated mocks that will incorporate your inputs.

Also, if you want to keep in touch with us or you want to know more about the project, you can subscribe to our newsletter.

Hope to hear from you soon! -- Sannita (WMF) (talk to me!) 09:57, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[]

About the template for a closed discussion[edit]

Dear Themightyquill, I saw that you changed the template for the archive of the discussion in at least two Discussion pages to {{Commons:Categories for discussion/2020/07/Category:Traditional clothes by country}}. Thanks! This is more clear an easier. But I followed the manual on Commons:Categories for discussion#Closing a discussion, point 5. If there has been a change, shouldn't this be changed as well in this manual? JopkeB (talk) 03:11, 5 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Yes, it probably should be. Sometime last year (I think?), I followed someone else's lead in shifting toward just posting the whole discussion on talk pages. Our talk pages are so little used, that posting the full discussion doesn't clutter anything up, and it's easier than requiring a second click to read the discussion. - Themightyquill (talk) 08:01, 6 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks for your reply. I left a question on the Talk page of Commons:Categories for discussion about this matter. JopkeB (talk) 18:57, 6 October 2021 (UTC)[]
