CategoryEdit

(Copied from User talk:OSX) Hi, thank you for your advice. I have a question for you: how can we eliminate the categories?

Navigator84 17:53, 15 April 2009 (UTC+1)

Hi, first of all I would go to "My preferences" --> Gadgets --> and select the boxes "Cat-a-lot" and "Hot Cat". These tools will make it much easier for you to rename the categories. Note: After saving, you have to bypass your browser's cache to see the changes. Internet Explorer: press Ctrl-F5, Mozilla: hold down Shift while clicking Reload (or press Ctrl-Shift-R), Opera/Konqueror: press F5, Safari: press Cmd-Opt-E.
I'll let you work out how to use them for yourself, but if you can't just ask me and I'll try and guide you.
Now back to your original question. When you've used the above tools to batch re-categorise the images, you will need to create the category page. To delete the old category, use the following template, {{badname|new name of category}}. An administrator will then delete the old one for you. OSX (talkcontributions) 01:41, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
P.S. Please remember to use the category naming conventions. Rather than using "Category:Second-generation Pontiac Vibe" use "Category:Pontiac Vibe (second generation)". Cheers OSX (talkcontributions) 01:39, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Just quickly, could you please use "second generation" instead of "2nd generation" as you did for Category:Cadillac CTS (2nd generation)? OSX (talkcontributions) 05:32, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi, to add to the above, when using model codes in category names, make sure the codes go in parentheses too. Rather than using "Category:Ford Escape ZD" use "Category:Ford Escape (ZD)". On the subject of the Ford Escape, et al. please do not make such drastic categorical changes unless you know the subject well enough. The "ZC" and "ZD" codes are used only in Australasia (not North America, et cetera) to designate the 2006 and 2008 updates of the Escape. The original Australasian Ford Escapes (2001–2006) utilised the codes, "BA", "ZA", and "ZB". As a result, I have separated the category into generations. The Mazda Tribute and Mercury Mariner versions of the Escape also definitely do not utilise the ZC and ZD codes. OSX (talkcontributions) 08:38, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Hello, Navigator84!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

CatégorisationEdit

Bonsoir, j'essayerai de catégoriser indépendantement mes photos à l'avenir! Meilleures salutations -- M 93 (talk) 20:55, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Bonjour. Pas de problème. Je suis désolé si cela vous a engendré des gênes. Cordialement. Navigator84, 17:04, 17 January 2011 (CET)

UploadsEdit

Ooh lá lá!

Thanks for all your uploads of Chinese vehicles. Nice to see my blurry little crops becoming superseded by much better images. Cheers, mr.choppers (talk)-en- 17:50, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

I just want to help. I had a big opportunity to live in Shanghai for 4 months, thus I am going to try to photograph a maximum of chinese cars. Do I have to mask number plates? If yes, I manage not at the good to make it, somebody would have to help me. In China, there are lots of Minivan of chinese brands but I don't know these brands, so I will upload these in Chinese automobile category. Your work is fantastic, thank so much !! Navigator84 03:56, 11 April 2012 (UTC+1)
I will be more than happy to help identifying these minivans; taking notes on number codes on the trunk (like "SQL7394" and that sort of stuff) helps immensely. I would also appreciate pictures of the Tianjin Xiali - they are so common that no one has ever been interested in providING a good photograph of one. Enjoy your stay, I hope you get to see lots and lots of interesting stuff. If you really want to see some interesting things I would recommend contacting the China Vehicle Documentation Centre. They respond very quickly to emails and can sometimes get people entry into private car collections and museums. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 04:15, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
That Shanghai Maple is indeed horrible! Thanks for sharing - by the time your trip is over, and if you don't find any un-stickered such cars, I will try to photoshop them all away. Keep the pics coming! mr.choppers (talk)-en- 06:11, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Sorry for this bad picture >_< I need of your help. I have photagraphed some chinese cars which I don't know. http://i46.tinypic.com/10893kl.jpg. I think it is a Nanjing Soyat 7150/Unique. But I don't sure. Navigator84 17:16, 28 April 2012 (UTC+1)
I believe it is a Nanjing Yuejin Encore NJ6400 (I believe that the "Unique" name was only applied to the Van version, and after a facelift with a more rounded grille), but it's hard to see precisely with these bizarre little manufacturers. Also see here. It could have been built last week with a pile of leftover grilles... Sorry I didn't see this before, please go ahead and upload it! I have been searching for a shot of one of these. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 20:29, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Fiat ViaggioEdit

Hi Navigator84 can you photograph the Fiat Viaggio? Because on commons there aren't photo of this car :(( --Corvettec6r (talk) 11:18, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Hello corvettec6r !! I'm sorry but I'm currently in my home in France. I was in China from April to August this year for an intership. But I will go to China 10 days in February 2013. I will try to find one to take a picture :) But if you have an address of a Fiat dealer in Shanghai, please let me know !! I photographed some Fiat vehicles : Palio (hatch, sedan and Wagon), Perla, Freemont and Bravo. Bye, happy holidays !! Navigator84, Talk 17:16, 23 December 2012 (UTC+1)

okok Navigator84 :) and can you upload the photo of chinese Palio and Perla? I can't speak english and on the GAC Fiat site i can't find the address of Fiat Shanghai http://www.gacfiatauto.com/ :( --Corvettec6r (talk) 19:47, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

and Happy Holidays :):) i live in Italy but the Palio isn't sold, there are only Panda and Punto :)--Corvettec6r (talk) 19:49, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

I took this photo in Beijing (http://i50.tinypic.com/o5yfbr.jpg), is it the Perla ? I'm not sure. The Palio was built in China by Nanjing-Fiat joint-venture until 2007. The facelift Multipla and the old Palio are still building in China by a small chinese carmaker (Zotye : http://www.zotye.com/). And now, it's GAC-Fiat which are building the Viaggio sedan and soon the hatchback version and maybe the new Panda in 2013 (http://www.carnewschina.com/2012/12/21/patent-applied-fiat-panda-will-come-to-china/) sorry it's in english. I like this blog on the chinese car market created by a very friendly dutch man who living in China. I can't promis you to take a picture of the Viaggio, but I will try. I will stay 10 days in Shanghai, but 3 days in a wine trade show. In 5 months, I didn't see many Italian cars, mainly Fiat Palio and Ferraris, but I saw one time an Alfa 156, a Lancia Thesis (using by the Italian consulate in Shanghai) and an Abarth 500 (see my photos for the 500), but the Renault vehicles are also rare ^^ Sorry I don't speak Italian >_< Navigator84, Talk 22:13, 23 December 2012 (UTC+1)

Yes, is a Fiat Perla! :D on it.wikipedia there are the article about Fiat Perla but there aren't a photo http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_Perla i have look your photo about Abarth 500, is very rare because the Abarth version don't is import in China :) --Corvettec6r (talk) 14:20, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

ok !! I will upload it soon !! But I don't understand one thing. In the italian page on wikipedia about Fiat Perla, if I well understood, Fiat had a join venture with Chery Automobiles between 2007 and 2009. But the Perla was built from 2006 to 2009. So, which built the Perla ? Nanjing-Fiat or Chery-Fiat ? And so, Fiat sold licence to Zotye for the Multipla, Siena/Albea/Perla. We can see some Multipla as taxi in Hangzhou (beautiful place in China ^^). The chinese automobile industry is very complicated, but very very interested !! Meery Christmas !! Navigator84, Talk 17:18, 24 December 2012 (UTC+1)
The Perla! Fantastic!!! Can't wait to see it uploaded. The car was introduced by Nanjing-Fiat, don't know what exactly what happened to Fiat's Chinese subsidiaries in the period concerned. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 20:24, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Done !! http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fiat_Perla_China_2012-08-09.JPG sorry for the delay >_<. Navigator84, Talk 23:27, 29 December 2012 (UTC+1)
Great! The Nanjing Ibiza is coming too, right? If you have any more questions about pictures, just go ahead and upload them with whatever name - I can change the names on files, so if anything is misidentified then no worries. Also, you could always take a quick closeup of the text on the trunk. While I don't read Chinese many other people (tons) do. Cheers again. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 22:27, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

thanks for the photo of Perla and Palio Weekend :) and happy new year :))--Corvettec6r (talk) 13:35, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

New pictures of last daysEdit

Hey, do you know why these brand new BMW vehicles seem to be leaved there in Shanghai and getting dirty and becoming overgrown? --Thomas doerfer (talk) 16:38, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Hello! Honestly, I don't know. I found this big parking next to a BMW dealer on Ziteng Road near of Shanghai's downtown. There is also a Jaguar-Land Rover dealer in front of this. I think, the cars are waiting there before to dispatch to other BMW dealers in Shanghai area. Because all the vehicles I saw are imported from Europe to China by the Shanghai's harbour. There were tens of E92's BMW, 6-Series, 5-Series, X1, X5, Land Rover, Jaguar.... many hundred thousands euros. More photos I took of this place : http://i47.tinypic.com/axyzd1.jpg / http://i46.tinypic.com/315fo1h.jpg / http://i47.tinypic.com/2e1x9mw.jpg Navigator84, Talk 00:43, 04 January 2013 (UTC+1)
Intriguing - I guess they're in some non-customs no mans land? I was also intrigued by all the photos of very new Changfengs which looked semi-abandoned. You have taken some priceless photos, thanks again for sharing. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 07:44, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Probably, because they have to wait for a long time. In fact, I took the both Changfeng vehicles and the Englon TX4 (chinese famous-english cabs) in the american-automobile-supplier Delphi's plant situated in one of chinese coastal development areas in Shanghai. I took the photos behind the fence and not in the plant. I believed that these both cars were really new with their disguise but then I checked on Internet and I realized the both cars were already on sale !! I was really disappointed. I will upload more pictures later, because I took about 3.000-3.500 pictures of cars in China, it's a little bit long to upload them ! Because the chinese auto market is now the biggest in the world, but on Wikipedia, there are not lots of pages about chinese cars / cars sold in China; so I hope with pictures, someone will creat more pages about that! Have a nice day. Navigator84, Talk 09:45, 04 January 2013 (UTC+1)
Sadly it takes me much longer to create an entry for a car than it does for Geely to develop a new one... My prime interest is in those old joint venture cars like the Chinese-built Austin Maestros and Seat Ibizas, so that's where I do most of my work. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 16:46, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
No problem ^^ I didn't know a chinese-built Austin Maestro ... I would like to take a photo of the chinese-built Citroën Visa, sold as a Wuling's model at the beginning of 90's, just 901 vehicles were produced. Navigator84, Talk 10:05, 05 January 2013 (UTC+1)
Those are probably all disappeared by now, at least according to the experts. Erik Van Ingen Schenau has photographed a few, but unless you're going to Liuzhou (with a good local guide) I don't think there's much of a chance. Would make for a pretty cool pilgrimage, though. Check this out for more on the Lubao Maestro. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 10:10, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
The other strange thing is, that there are these fuel efficiency-labels in some cars. --Thomas doerfer (talk) 14:40, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Three StarsEdit

The Sanxing Voyager is intriguing - it seems they were imported fully built, sans wheels. This allowed the "manufacturer" to pay import taxes at a much lower rate, but not much manufacturing of any sort took place. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 02:44, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

You're right. I don't know why I wrote CKD production. I found this car in a second-hand car market in Shanghai. It's Erik from http://www.chinesecars.net/ who told me about this car. Indeed, the Voyager was imported sans wheels and battery. I will edit the small text I wrote. There are not lots of information about this company, I found this : http://www.chinacartimes.com/2012/08/sighted-china-introducing-chrysler-voyager-chrysler-voyager/ / http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1346&dat=19980609&id=dsJNAAAAIBAJ&sjid=LP0DAAAAIBAJ&pg=6444,6331929 The Sanxing Voyager cost about 44.000 US$ and the imported Chrysler Voyager at this time 56.000 US$. Navigator84, Talk 09:00, 27 March 2013 (UTC+1)
Please check the new text. Navigator84, Talk 09:51, 27 March 2013 (UTC+1)
Oh, I hadn't even realized there was an error, just wanted to share. But I'm glad I could be of help. Keep the photos coming, I hope you get sent into the countryside soon... where the cars are older. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 17:02, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I'm not living in China... I was 5 months last year for an internship and 10 days last month. So, I took many pictures of vehicles in China (about 4-5.000, I uploaded just 1.500 ^^ ). But, I really want to go everywhere in China to see old Chinese cars like Citroën Visa-based Wuling, BYD S8and others. I hope go to China many times in the future. I took photos in Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Shanghai and Huangshan. Navigator84, Talk 20:52, 27 March 2013 (UTC+1)

Ford Mondeo catsEdit

Thanks for creating Category:Ford Mondeo Hybrid. :-) I've added the europe photos back to Category:Ford Mondeo Mk V (sedan) (while keeping the hybrid category) as presumably there will also be hatchback/estate versions of the hybrid, so I'd like to see us continuing to have separate categories for body style and engine type (where the engine type is known). Hope that's OK with you. I'm not sure how the europe/us versioning should be handled here though - any suggestions? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 22:06, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
