problems with nl.wikipedia community and SVG imagesEdit

Hi Walter, I notice you are an admin and you speak Dutch. I was wondering if you can maybe help out here. It seems like there are a lot of problems lately between nl.wikipedia and PNG flags and coat-of-arms being updated to SVG (see Commons:Village_pump#problem for the latest). We need some help so that nl.wikipedia people are happy with what we're doing, understand what we're doing and why we're doing it. At the moment it is very heated with talk of boycotting the Commons etc. I think we desparately need to improve our reputation with nl.wikipedia so I am hoping you can look into this issue and help keep it calm any way you can. Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 23:45, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Nederlandse taal op commonsEdit

Beste Walter,
Het valt me op dat er vrij vaak een verschil zit tussen de Nederlandse vertaling van MediaWiki teksten op commons en op wikipedia. Kan commons niet simpelweg de vertalingen van wikipedia aanhouden? Voorbeelden zijn discussie op commons en overleg op wikipedia, verplaats op commons en wijzig titel op wikipedia, bijdragen per gebruiker en bijdragen gebruiker. Het maakt natuurlijk niet zo veel uit, maar ik vind het simpelweg opvallend.
Groeten, Erwin85 21:50, 31 May 2006 (UTC). PS Ik heb geen flauw idee waar ik dit kan plaatsen, dus heb ik maar gezocht naar een moderator die Nederlands spreekt.

Ik werd net gewezen op [1] en dat dat de manier is om talen overal gelijk te maken. Groeten, Erwin85 18:01, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
Ja, dat wou ik je ook juist komen vertellen. Ik moet wel zeggen dat ik de werkwijze daar totaal niet begrijp.
De oorzaak van de verschiillen is dat er een onvolledige default vertaling is die actief is op alle wikis. Dan worden los van elkaar steeds die vertalingen lokaal bijgewerkt. --Walter 20:04, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
De BetaWiki is de plaats waar centraal de localisatie van MediaWiki geregeld wordt. De boodschappen die hier aangepast worden komen terecht in de overige wikis. Aanpassingen zijn natuurlijk niet wiki specifiek. Texten die specifiek voor een bepaald project zijn, zijn hier uit den boze. GerardM 02:29, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Commons-l subscriptionEdit

Hello Walter,

as per Commons talk:Administrators, I am asking all admins to subscribe to commons-l, a mailing list for Wikimedia Commons policy and project discussion. Since many admins are only on Commons infrequently, this is a good way to alert people about important happenings. The mailing list is nominally multilingual, but predominantly English.

If you are already subscribed to commons-l, I apologize for bothering you, and you are free to ignore this message. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail account, feel free to leave me a message, and I can send you a GMail invite. Traffic on the mailing list is relatively low, and we do not expect admins to read all messages to the list, but it would be nice if you could check on it at least every few weeks. Thanks for your time,--Eloquence 23:18, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Alfa P3 <> Amilcar CGSSEdit

Dag Walter,

Blijkbaar heb je je vergist bij het uploaden van de Alfa P3 en de Amilcar CGSS Sport. De wagen die jij als P3 hebt geüpload is de Amilcar en omgekeerd. Ik heb de beschrijvingen reeds aangepast, maar misschien wil je die onder de juiste naam uploaden?

Admin newsEdit

Hello,

If you consent for statistics to be published about your actions as an administrator, please sign here: Commons:Administrator permission for statistics. (I expect that most people will not have a problem with it unless you are especially concerned with privacy.)

Also, please be aware that we now have a Commons:Administrators' noticeboard. Please put it on your watchlist, if you haven't already!

cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 05:33, 7 September 2006 (UTC) P.S.: Pardon if this is a repeat (bot debugging...)

nabend Walter,

das oben verlinkte Bild ist leider nicht richtig geschnitten, da sich auf der linken Seite ein weisser Rand befindet. Wäre schön wenn du es noch einmal geschnitten hochladen würdest. Manecke 01:06, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

I have re-uploaded an other version that is also transparent. --Walter 20:46, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

That is Image:Wikizinede.png. It is live and in use on w:de:Wikipedia:wikizine If you do not see it empty your local cache --Walter 22:13, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Allright, here you can see it being used (de:Wikipedia:Wikizine), thanks again :) Manecke 22:17, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

permissions for wikipedia logo imagesEdit

Hi Walter, Who can I ask for permission to use some of the wikipedia logo images (globe etc) for use within the wikipedia (page English as well as page Assamese versions? We might need to create a new one with an language Assamese text like many other versions that seem to exist. -Deepraj 14:13, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

You do not need to ask for permission for that. To ask to make a new logo for you wikipedia see meta:Requests_for_logos#Requests --Walter 21:57, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Administrative noticeEdit

Deutsch

Hi. This message is sent out to you because you are an administrator on Commons, and you made little use (or no use) of the admin tools lately: less than 5 times in the last five months.

Commons has a new policy on admin activity, Commons:Administrators/De-adminship, taken into use on June 13, 2007 (after a poll among users). According to that policy, admins who use their tools infrequently will be asked whether they still need their adminship, and if they do not respond or require them the removal of the tools will be requested.

If you feel you still need your admin tools, please sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section within 30 days from the date this message was sent out. However, if you then don't make 5 admin actions in the following 5 months, you will lose the adminship without any notice.

This is not a comment on the considerable help you have given to the project in the past but reflects the wish of the community to see active administrators and to ensure that possible security breaches are minimized.

This message is sent out by bot. If you want to give feedback on it, you can do so here — 08:50, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Notice of namespace-rename "Image" -> "File"Edit

Dear user, the MediaWiki developers recently announced that the "Image:" namespace is going to be renamed to "File:". "Image:" will remain an alias. The canonical namespace name wgCanonicalNamespace will change from "Image" to "File".

I noticed that you use wgCanonicalNamespace in either your monobook.js page or a JavaScript file in your userspace (check this list).

Please check and replace all occurrences of

wgCanonicalNamespace == "Image"

with

wgNamespaceNumber == 6

to ensure that your scripts keep working. Thanks! --Dschwen (talk) 18:41, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Walter!

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.

Please help replace this outdated licenseEdit

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.

The images we would like you to check are:

I have nothing to do with those files. There not mine. --Walter (talk) 21:52, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Kuifje auto'sEdit

Hey Walter, Ik zie dat je meer auto's hebt gefotografeerd die geselecteerd waren voor een beurs omdat ze voorkwamen in de Kuifje serie. Misschien is het leuk om een categorie "Cars featured in the Tintin series" aan te maken? Aangezien ik niet op de beurs ben geweest weet ik niet welke auto's nou wel en niet in deze categorie zouden horen. --Vera (talk) 19:32, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
