Can you please check your recent uploads?[edit]

You have recently uploaded many files which belong in Category:Birmingham, Alabama to the incorrect categories Category:Alabama and Category:Birmingham (the latter being a city in England). Could you please correct them? Thanks. - Takeaway (talk) 12:55, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
PS As these files are mainly images of food that have been ordered in restaurants in Birmingham, Alabama, perhaps you could create Category:Restaurants in Birmingham, Alabama while you are at it, and also remove the extremely broad Category:Restaurants from these files. - Takeaway (talk) 12:56, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Those categories were all automatically added by the Flickr2commons bot and I have not even had time to review the upload much less fiddle around with new cats or remove inaccurate ones. BTW I think the restaurants are actually all over the place, not just Alabama, as I seem to recall seeing New York. Right now I won't have the time but will look at them when I am available again which, unfortunately, will not be before mid-December as I am travellling abroad from early tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up. Ww2censor (talk) 15:32, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm... Perhaps next time you shouldn't just copy the Flickr categories as these are not so much categories as in Wikimedia Commons but more tags. They also tend to overload main categories and simply copying them pushes the workload of correctly categorising them to others. - Takeaway (talk) 17:08, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I see that but I think it is all or nothing. One either allows the bot to tag all the files based on what it finds or add no categories at all unless one applies the same category/ies to all the images in an upload. Perhaps you are damned you do or damned if you don't. Either way these all need a look after upload. If you do some corrections while I am away, try to do it from my upload list starting at the earliest (which are less than 100 from the newest) and let me know where your stopped, so I know where to restart. Thanks Ww2censor (talk) 17:20, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
I'll not be going through your uploads 1 by 1 to remove the Flickr crud. I'll just change it from certain categories with Cat-a-lot so some of the crud will still need to be removed manually when you are back. Perhaps best to upload to a private category next time and then correctly categorise them from there instead of polluting main or incorrect categories with Flickr uploads. Takeaway (talk) 19:38, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
That sound reasonable enough. I'll have a look when I return and as you suggest make a special cat for future uploads. Ww2censor (talk) 21:15, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
