though being the illustrator of Image:Nyhus Opp og ut 00.jpg, are you sure the editor does not have exclusive rights over the drawing? --Túrelio (talk) 13:16, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, in this low res version and without the logo of the publishing house it's OK. Wolfmann (talk) 13:18, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]

Hello!

Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

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.

Europeana 1914-18 collection[edit]

Hi Wolfmann,
I noticed that you'd categorised a few of the images that I'd recently uploaded from the http://www.europeana1914-1918.eu collection and was wondering if you'd be interested in had seen the complete project here: Commons:Europeana/Europeana 1914-1918 batch upload. Basically, it is ~800 files from crowdsourced personal collections across Europe of items relating to WWI. Because of the way I had to do this upload, these files are HAND CHOSEN to have a high likelihood of being usable in Wikipedia articles. It's not just a massive dump of pictures, but the ones from Europeana 14-18 that are BOTH freely licensed AND "encyclopedic". Also, because these are crowdsourced items, many of them tell a much more personal kind of story to the things we see from war-museums.
If you're interested in this material, I would very much appreciate if you could have a look at some of the items and perhaps use them in WP articles directly, or help me check their categories and list 'suggested articles'. Sincerely, Wittylama (talk) 13:46, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Shell Oil Company[edit]

Hei, jeg ser du har opprettet kategorien Category:Shell Oil Company in Norway. Shell Oil Company er Royal Dutch Shells datterselskap i USA, med hovedkontor i Houston. Dette selskapet har vel ingen virksomhet i Norge, den er organisert i selskapet A/S Norske Shell som har over 100 års historie: [1]. Jeg foreslår derfor at kategorien flyttes til Category:Norske Shell. - 4ing (talk) 20:13, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Perfekt! Jeg flytter nå. Wolfmann (talk) 20:14, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Og jeg flyttet videre til korrekt selskapsnavn ;-) 4ing (talk) 20:26, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Takk! Sjekka ikke ordentlig, men trodde «Norske Shell» nå var erstatta med «Shell Norge». Wolfmann (talk) 20:29, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Ser at det kan misforstås ved å se på www.shell.no, men selskapet heter A/S Norske Shell. Tror ikke det er noen planer om å endre det. 4ing (talk) 20:36, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Joda, kjenner navnet A/S Norske Shell, men følger ikke med på omorganiseringer, navneendringer og så videre i næringslivet, og antok at selskapet hadde skifta navn. Fint du passer på! Wolfmann (talk) 20:40, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Educational wall pictures[edit]

Hej Wolfman. Tak for dine mange kategoriseringer af disse billeder. Jeg er enig i de fleste, men håber ikke du bliver fornærmet, når jeg fører nogle stykker tilbage. Det handler om de oprindelige billeder, opklæbet på pap. Jeg synes ikke de er nødvendige at vise udenfor samlingen fra Emdrup, så mit forslag er, at vi nøjes med de beskårne (cropped) udgaver, der viser de egentlige litografier. Og med "history prints" forstår jeg litografier, der skildrer historiske begivenheder, og det gør for eksempel en fiktiv scene fra en havn ikke. Håber, du er enig. Venlig hilsen --Rsteen (talk) 18:44, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Ja, hei, åndsfrende! Tror jeg forstår hvordan du tenker. Dette er ikke viktig for meg, men min erfaring med bilder i den enorme samlingen her, er at det likevel er mest praktisk å samle alle versjoner i alle kategorier. Vanligvis vil selvsagt den "beste", beskårede versjon benyttes, men fordi jeg ikke vet hva brukerne er ute etter, og man ganske snart mister oversikten, mener jeg altså det beste er å presentere alt, hele veien, om du forstår hva jeg mener. Så blir det opp til brukerne selv å avgjøre hvilken versjon de vil anvende. Mange kategorier vil også gjøre bildene mer tilgjengelige: forskjellige kategorier og flere stikkord gir mulighet for forskjellige innganger til å finne det rette motiv.
Forstår også din definisjon av "History prints" som "grafiske trykk med motiver fra betydningsfulle historiske hendelser", altså som viser konkrete begivenheter gra den kjente historien, selv om man nok kan argumentere for at kategorien like gjerne kan omfatte enhver "historisk scene".
Vel, gjør som du selv ønsker. Uansett tusen takk for responsen og bidragene dine her! Det er morsomt og spennende med Wikipedia og wikimedia. Og skolemuseets samling av plansjer er fantastisk! Alt godt fra Wolfmann (talk) 21:01, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Hej Wolfmann. Tak for dit venlige svar. Der kommer mere fra Skolemuseet efterhånden som de får afklaret copyright på materialet. Plancherne er i øvrigt et godt eksempel på samarbejde mellem nordmænd og danskere - jeg tænker på Louis Moes flotte illustrationer. Venlig hilsen --Rsteen (talk) 07:15, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure. I think keeping these categories apart is the best solution for now? Perhaps we could add for instance "see also category:Edderkoppen" etc.? Wolfmann (talk) 01:53, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

categories of architectural elements[edit]

Hello Wolfmann, thank you for showing interest in architectural details and categorizing images in this matter. If you do so like here for example could you possibly pick more specific categories? The main category Category:Stairs actually holds over 450 images. If you add images there, sooner or later all of them have to be looked again and sorted into subcategories by someone else. Categorizing in this way is quite inefficient and very time consuming. Imagine: Would you like to do the work sorting allmost 500 images? In this chase if you had added Category:Outside stairs in West Virginia and Category:Wooden stairs instead of the general Category:Stairs you would have been a lot more efficient.

If I did the categorization of this image I would went even beyond that. I would also create a subcategory of "wooden stairs" (holds also 400 images) Category:Wooden stairs in the United States based on the similiar ones (of other countries) and listed in Category:Wooden stairs by country. It doesn't matter to have such a category with just one file in it, because it will eventually fill up with other ones.

I don't now the reason for your edit which I have mentioned and I also not know how you categorize normally. I just wanted to make sure that you are aware of this. Thank you. --Zaccarias (talk) 02:59, 5 July 2017 (UTC)


Dear Zaccarias! Thank you for reminding me! As a procrastinating Illustrator loving pictures and avoiding work, I spend a lot of time finding and creating correct and more specific categories for images on Wikimedia Commons (as you can see from my contributions). Nevertheless, now and then I make it easy for myself by just adding a very broad category to an image. When I'm in a hurry or getting exhausted, I consider it to be better to add a top or parent category than no category at all. By giving images keywords we make them searchable, and many of the superb photos and illustrations copied from the big archives are unfortunately very poorly marked.
Ok. I will try my best to put images into correct subcategories (but perhaps allowing myself to make some easy solutions from time to time).
Once again thank you for keeping a sharp eye on contributors! All the best from me – and keep up the good work! --Wolfmann (talk) 07:47, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Dear Wolfmann, if you sometimes take the easy way I am fine with that. I thought that you might allready be aware. As you said adding a general category is also an improvement. Thank you for your very welcoming reply, I am also very pleased to see other users taking media categorization seriously. Like you said there is a lot of potential here to improve the usability of the allready obtained content. At the moment that is basically the issue I am focussing on. My skills are improving: I am shifting more and more from one by one categorization, to mass categorization. Right now I am learning search expressions helping me to automate some categorization work. I also wish you all the best! --Zaccarias (talk) 19:30, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
