Emergency vehicle lighting[edit]

Hi Zaccarias,

Thank you for reverting my edit at File:Asali gnangarra 160915-136.jpg.

Reviewing categories about special transports e.g. category:Oversized loads, I wanted to categorize the gear used to warn drivers for road hazards. Not sure where to place them, I found the article nl:Zwaailicht in my native language. This Dutch word (literally: 'swinging light') is used for all types of signalling lights that are placed on vehicle roofs and outlines as warning signs. However, the article is coupled to en:Emergency vehicle lighting, which has a different focus but somewhat thoughtlessly I took the emergency lights to be equivalent to the zwaailichten. Waking up this morning I realized my mistake but I had not yet found time to correct it. Thank you for doing so.

As far as I can see, there are no categories specifically for this type of gear although there are various related categories:

There are probably some more but these would do as parent categories I suppose. Another issue is the naming of a new category. My choice would be create Category:Vehicle hazard lights within Category:Road hazard lights but then I am no native English speaker. Googling I found that the term hazard lights includes the use of all four turning lights as warning signs, which may give rise to a corresponding subcategory.

Your advice would be welcome on both the category structure and the naming issue but feel free to refer me to pages like the Village pump if you prefer so. — bertux (=user:B222) 10:07, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Community discussions[edit]

When something is marked for community discussion, eg. {{delete}} discussion, then please do not remove that and make it a COPYVIO. Community discussions will manage it appropriately and for a 2008 upload it is better that we have that discussion.  — billinghurst sDrewth 16:28, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

File:Visteon Corporate Campus.JPG[edit]

The description of this file is:

"English: Visteon corporate campus at Grace Lake Corporate Center, Van Buren Township, Michigan"

Why did you add it to unknown locations in Michigan category? Rmhermen (talk) 03:25, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

@Rmhermen: I clean up littered general categories such as Category:Companies, Category:Industries, Category:Factories and so forth. Usually these are littered with hundreds of files listed directly in the category. When I move files I take care of the subject and categorize them: it this case it was "automotive industry" and "Michigan". Because I didn't want to check the precise location in detail I used the maintenance category Category:Unidentified locations in Michigan to make sure that someone eventually will do that. Sometimes I search for the exact location for myself sometimes I leave that up to other users who might be more familiar. This is my understanding of a normal workflow. --Zaccarias (talk) 16:24, 30 May 2018 (UTC)


Hi, Zaccarias. I'm author of this file. --Dfotev 09:16, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

@Dfotev: I've converted the "missing permission"-tag of the file to a regular deletion request (these are the rules) and linked your comment there. (Otherwise your image would have been deleted without further discussion. This is takes place 7 days after the files have been tagged.) Please place your further comments on the page of the deletion request: Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Cooolbox.jpg Eventually an administrator will handle this task.

If you are related to that firm it would be best to give official permission via Commons:OTRS. You can find the link and some instructions for that procedure in the box on your talkpage. Thank you. --Zaccarias (talk) 16:59, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
