Am I not? Whats your problem? TomAlt (talk) 13:02, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Dear Tom,

thank you for your advice in my user talk page. You obviously know much better than me how to categorize building images in Wikipedia. Can you please do it with my images? I've spent at least two full days uploading, describing and categorizing my photographs, and within the next months I won't have the time to work on them again.

Best regards,

Myriam (user: thyes)

F. Wendt[edit]

Dear TomAlt, I recently uploaded Image:F. Wendt competition design for the Peace Palace The Hague.jpg, but I can't place the architect. The only information I have is that he worked in Berlin-Charlottenburg. Do you have a clue or do you know where to look for his bio? Regards, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 20:58, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

No idea, I had a look around on the usual databases (archinform) but could not find him on the web, sorry. TomAlt (talk) 11:23, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
ok, so I found a 'lost' architect. I'll have a look at my local library. Maybe he's listed in Brockhaus. Thanks anyway, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 15:34, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Buildings by association[edit]

Please do not remove "Buildings by association", and do not redirect the cat. Buildings are NOT automatically owned by a group or other organisation they are associated with (Masonic structures for example includes tons of formerly Masonic buildings) - I have no problem with a "Buildings by owner" cat, but it is not the same! Ingolfson (talk) 12:51, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

I see your point. Up to now we had one hierachy for buildings that are built for, built by and/or owned by used by (in the past or currenty) an person or organisation. All this was up to now subsumised in the Category:Buildings by owner. But you are right, this is not very precise. This tree contains cats like for example Category:Castles of the Teutonic Knights ("Client") or Category:Coca-Cola buildings ("Current Owner"). When I created the "Owner" tree I thought keep it simple. I'm not a natural english speaker, my dictionary says the word "Owner" can mean the person who gave the comission or current owner. But perhaps "Association" is the better lemma than "Owner"? Then we should rename the whole tree to "Association", if thats the best word for it. Whatever, we should avoid separate hierachies for this aspect, I think that would make things to complicated. TomAlt (talk) 13:32, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Sorry for not checking back here - but we effectively did all me / you had discussed here already. "Association" is also nicely flexibly for borderline cases (where owner isn't) and already exists as a category structure (which I am busy extending - no reason not to run with a good thing ;-). Also, the problem with an "owner" category is that it is a moving target. If Coca-Cola sells a coca-cola shaped building (just as a blunt example), it would still be associated - but unless some user hears about the fact that this specific building isn't OWNED by them anymore, it would stick around in the wrong cat... Cheers and happy editing. Ingolfson (talk) 10:10, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Larger version?[edit]

Hello, Does any higher-resolution version of this file exist? It is an excellent image, and I think the Wikimedia projects would benefit from having a version of higher resolution. Best, Notyourbroom (talk) 22:32, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Found the higher res version, and just uploaded it. TomAlt (talk) 23:42, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
Wonderful! --Notyourbroom (talk) 00:38, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Architectural categories[edit]

Hi, TomAlt! I am sorry I didn´t answer you before. I am quite disconnected to Commons these last months, and I didn´t see your message. Here is my opinion about the subject: [1]

Cheers! --Balbo (talk) 01:18, 1 June 2009 (UTC)


You may want to see the discussion I started at Commons:Village pump#Category:Libraries, since you have at some time edited Category:Libraries. - Jmabel ! talk 02:21, 26 January 2011 (UTC)


Category discussion notification Category:Gasometers has been listed at Commons:Categories for discussion so that the community can discuss ways in which it should be changed. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

Zollingerdach Klein Schneen[edit]

Hallo TomAlt, bei dem Foto File:Zollingerdach Klein Schneen 2.JPG hatte ich die Category:Zollingerdach gerade zuvor durch Category:Roof forms ersetzt, weil es sich nicht um ein Zollingerdach handelt, sondern um ein Bohlenbogendach oder Bohlendach, vgl. [2], [3] unter Bohlendach. Eine passende Kategorie für Bohlendächer habe ich nicht gefunden, aber nach dem Artikel de:Zollingerdach stelle ich mir darunter etwas anderes vor als ein Tragwerk, bei dem die (normal längs verlaufenden) Sparren aus kurzen bogenförmig zusammengesetzten Bohlenstücken bestehen, wie es in Klein Schneen der Fall ist. Die Dächer in Klein Schneen sind auch bereits Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts entstanden, als Zollinger noch gar nicht lebte. Die Bildbeschreibung hatte ich deshalb auch geändert. --Dehio (talk) 22:48, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, ich bin nach dem Bildnamen gegangen und davon ausgegangen, das das Bild einfach falsch kategorisiert wurde. TomAlt (talk) 08:44, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Kein Problem, nix passiert. Es sieht halt von außen ähnlich aus wie ein Zollingerdach, und als Presse03 mit uns das angeguckt und fotografiert hat, waren wir nicht auf dem Gutshof und erst recht nicht im Gebäude, sondern haben nur von außen geguckt. Erst am Tag des offenen Denkmals habe ich es dann von innen angesehen, und Herr von Schnehen hat das Dach genau gezeigt und erklärt. Vielleicht frage ich Presse03 mal, ob man die Datei umbenennen soll, damit es nicht mehr so verwirrend ist. --Dehio (talk) 11:41, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
