SPLaq or SPLl?Edit

Considering this:

(Move log); 22:13 . . YLSS (talk | contribs) moved page File:BSicon SPLaq(yellow).svg to File:BSicon vSPLl yellow.svg ‎(following File:BSicon vSPLl 99CCFF.svg)

I’m not 100% sure how the ongoing debates about the role of "q" and about "SPL" will end, but I’m very sure that going around renaming each other’s experimental filenaming without discussion (or, as in this case, in spite of ongoing discussion) is not the proper way of reaching consensus. -- Tuválkin 22:32, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I was unaware that the question is not settled yet, just though that since you re-uploaded the 99CCFF one later than the yellow one, that was the final choice. YLSS (talk) 22:37, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
I reuploaded   (vSPLl 99CCFF) with the same name because Useddenim had renamed it before (from an obviously wrong name) because I don’t force my naming views on others like that. That’s why I don’t like it when others do it to me. Lets settle the matters about "q" and about "SPL", first, then lets rename it all as needed. -- Tuválkin 22:57, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
I was just unable to find a discussion fresher than a year old. That said, I do not favour "q" or "l" or anything in the least, I'm utterly afraid of those parallel lines and have no intention of entering related discussions! YLSS (talk) 23:04, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
Those discussions seem to be stalled, yes. But these kind of things some times suddenly flare up and old blocked isses find a fast solution — just like the matter of other colors. We’ll see. For what’s worth,   is what I’d call SPLl. (I have no preference for SPL over vSPL, other than that consistency should be attained in the final convention — they both seem to mean the same, given the meaning of SPL.) -- Tuválkin 23:16, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

"set green" vs. "set f"Edit

You're moving files from "set green" to "set f". IMHO this is not a good idea, we also have "set blue" instead of "set u" or alike! a×pdeHello! 14:03, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Well, that was discussed at Talk:BSicon/Colors. The idea is to release "green" and "blue" for other sets, since they are not actually used in naming. YLSS (talk) 14:05, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm, not so easy to find this, I started a new section Talk:BSicon/Colors#"set blue" and "set green". Regards a×pdeHello! 14:25, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

BSicon renamesEdit


Unfortunately there is no easy means to rename BSicon files due to the means that they are embedded within the corresponding templates. The attached pages at the wikis will need to be updated to the preferred filename prior to the deletion of the duplicate file. Alternatively, just leave it is currently.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:19, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

I repeat that you will need to manually update any BSicon file name changes, the bots cannot achieve it. Further we cannot undertake a file move where the filename is in use.  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:10, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Re: BS icons VEdit

Someone in Chinese WP reported that the utSTRlf and uextSTRlf icon shows mysterious line in the file description page preview images. So what I did is to add more xmlns definitions in the beginning of the SVG element. But I am not confident if that actually fixed the problem because while the top preview in the file description page looks fine, hours ago that mysterious line appeared in my version in the upload history preview. This is a long standing glitch of MediaWiki's SVG-to-PNG renderer. Random line pops up randomly at random image scale so there's not much we can do to prevent that. As long as the icon looks OK at 20px high, all fine. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 11:39, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply. This is a different issue from e.g. File:BSicon tABZlf.svg, right? YLSS (talk) 11:43, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Same issue. So I uploaded my revision with the same trick did on utSTRlf. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 14:32, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Icon colorEdit

I don't reply you in the project talk page because this is not related to my topic. The transfer station nodes of Russian metro maps in Russian Wikipedia (e.g. ru:Шаблон:Сокольническая линия) is confusing to visually impaired reader. They (or "you") didn't use the number icon like in English Wikipedia. But since you have said that "the blue colour (instead of red) and by the peculiar INT stations; DSTs, on the other hand, are more intuitive", I want to know how that is related to the differentiation between DST and INT. Do you mean you think we should modify the shape of INT instead of DST or the INT set should have not been created at all? It puzzles me. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 06:56, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Well, I don't say that something shouldn't have been created at all, I just wouldn't use INTs myself, because I find the concept quite puzzling: first we have a plain station without a transfer and visualise it with a filled circle (BHF), and then we have another station that does not differ from the first except for the fact that another station on another line has been built next to it, with e.g. a transfer passage; however, we mark it with a 1) black and 2) empty circle (INT)... Various HUBs, CPICs, BHF-Ls represent the situation better, IMHO. Visually impaired readers (and others as well) can possibly use hovering/clicking on the station in order to find out what line it is on. That said, I'm all for using e.g.  6  in the text field in addition to the HUBs in the diagram. YLSS (talk) 07:14, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

File:BSicon lBHFf.svg et al.Edit

Re this change: no I didn't forget them. Please see this discussion. Useddenim (talk) 01:11, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Axpde at his best. Actually, the whole expansion of lBHF/lHST sets that I undertook was not concerned with stations, but rather with basins in canals. I could've uploaded only the "u" variants, but decided to make the "bahn" icons just in case - it's very easy to change one RGB code. As for the result, see ru:User:YLSS/Sandbox; maybe one day I'll finish it... YLSS (talk) 07:35, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

User pages and CUTLEdit

Hello! About this edit, I don’t mind at all, and I thank you. Indeed, I consider that user pages should not be exempted from trivial fixes like this, as they are supposed to be also somwhat part of the project. When updated changed names, I only avoid those who are ovbiously abbandoned, and those about naming where old names are important (but also for non-user talk pages about icons). But I had to undo your change from   (CUT-L) to   (CUTL), because it is still not renamed yet. -- Tuválkin 13:32, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Category:Icons for railway descriptions/set u/parallel lines/single lineEdit

Can I understand why you remove all icons from that category and delete it since the category Category:Icons for railway descriptions/parallel lines/single line still exists and is fullfilled. Is there something I didn't understood?--Akiry (talk) 01:31, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

I can't say that I'm happy with Category:Icons for railway descriptions/parallel lines/single line or its implementation. In most cases, it just hides some files that are expected to be in the parent category (as the things stand now). If properly implemented, any single subcategory of Category:Icons for railway descriptions/parallel railways should have a subcategory with "single lines" - even the smallest one. Seeing that there are quite enough other criteria for breaking up (if needed, more can be introduced for particular geometries), it does not really serve it purpose of structuring BSicons. The icons you are talking about should have rather been placed into *Category:Icons for railway descriptions/set u/parallel lines/straight/single line and removed from Category:Icons for railway descriptions/set u/parallel lines/straight - but the latter, if needed, should be better separated into straights with arrows, straight with dams/cuts etc. I do not go around removing "single lines" from red icons, since ultimately there are plans to migrate to Category:BSicon, but I'm against introducing it into the set "u". YLSS (talk) 06:22, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
Ok. And where is the discussion about migrating categories of BS Icons? I feel like bringing some help I needed.--Akiry (talk) 10:09, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

BSicon exCONTr.svgEdit

Hi. Please, can u do somewat for this? Thank U in advance.--Ale Sasso (talk) 22:56, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

This is a MediaWiki lag following a file move. Unfortunately, nothing can be done as yet. The image will be back to normal after a couple of days, so we just have to wait. YLSS (talk) 23:05, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
There is a way to fix it immediately by changing the display dimension differently such as 250 by 250 px. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 01:07, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
What do you mean? For me, if I change them in the URL of the thumbnail, the "new" thumb will show a new design; but if some thumbnail was heavily used, like 20px and sometimes 120px, it may show the older design - or just nothing - for a couple of days. YLSS (talk) 05:53, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Trust me, the same bug happened to me on different SVG files. I waited like months and the problem didn't get solved magically until I changed the width of the SVG element (retaining the viewBox values) and re-upload it. This method exactly forces Wikimedia to abandon the thumbnails of older version and re-generate new thumbnail. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 06:36, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Ah, you mean to change the code... Seems like quite a brutal solution. Still, if I encounter such a prolonged issue, I'll use it, thanks! YLSS (talk) 08:21, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Did I miss something? When was it decided to rename the   (CONT) family of icons? Useddenim (talk) 01:38, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Well, there wasn't a centralised decision "yes, we can!", but I think it was on the verge for some time... Cf. Talk:BSicon/Renaming#CONTrf inconsistency. Because really, you can't have   (ENDEl) and   (CONTl) to show different designs... YLSS (talk) 05:53, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Sum bug in the systemEdit

Hi YLSS. I noticed that your requests at COM:HMS were laying dormant for some time... Hence I decided to just clear 'em off. Then smack. Some bug in the system ruined the history of the final output of File:BSicon LSHI1+r.svg. Please see if this file is still usable? If not, you may have to re-upload a fresh file again :( The same happened to this as well... Rehman 12:39, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Wow, a 2012 revision before 2013 revisions... That's really some black magic! Yes, the file is still usable, but shows the older geometry. Not a big deal of course, and I suppose it is possible to revert "back to the future". May I suggest that you proceed with the second pair, but this time moving the revisions of File:BSicon exLSHI1+r.svg to File:BSicon exLSPLer.svg first, and then both to File:BSicon exLSHI1+r.svg? In any case, thanks for dealing with this! YLSS (talk) 12:57, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the intrusion but I think you could gain more help by making your request to Commons:Graphic Lab/Map workshop. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 02:49, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Umph, sorry, but I'm afraid I will be of little use here... As yet, I've only dealt with extremely primitive SVGs and only once tried out something similar to {{SVG Chart}}. So possibly I could convert those images, but I would need quite a lot of time to learn. I can only double Sameboat's suggestion to post a request at the Graphic Lab.

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 AnnouncementEdit

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Your edit in Chinese WPEdit

Sorry to tell you that the track map for 羅湖站/Lo Wu Station in Chinese WP is actually wrong, but that was not your fault. It was the IP user added the wrong map of another station. I would be terribly sorry if anyone mistook you for vandalism.-- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 23:16, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for checking that! No offence for removing it. BTW, in many articles I replaced embedded maps with dedicated templates. Actually, I don't know the situation around there, and if it had been decided that it is better to embed maps, could you them please take care of the templates? That is, embed them and nominate for deletion or something. (I just don't want to update icons in two places instead of one.)

About the District Line route map, I didn't make any big progress because I'm recently busy at work. I'm just curious why you want me to translate it to zh.wp, even though that map will be translated any time soon. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 23:16, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Oops, I suppose I expressed myself wrong... I don't want you to translate it; I had just translated it then to Russian and converted it to Lua (which was an interesting experience – I found a sequence of regular expressions for Notepad++ for a nearly automatic conversion!), and suggested that you may want to translate it, if you find it interesting and challenging as I did. Sorry for burdening you with this! YLSS (talk) 23:37, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I've downloaded Notepad++ and start learning the regex myself. It's quite tricky but kinda fun to use once I get the basic like ([^...]+). -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 03:54, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

SElephant reverted your edit because Chrome makes the mw-collapsible button unclickable. And the reason for that is because Chrome and Safari still retain the height of text even if the font-size is defined zero, which I used to space out the title text and collapsible button. In the end I reverted BS-map from div to table and mw-collapsible to old collapsible again (old collapsible does not support div, only mw-collapsible does) while retaining the inline parameter. I'm motivated for this rollback also because MediaWiki processes wiki markup faster than html command in general. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 07:12, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Icons for railway descriptions/PoliciesEdit

User (talk · contribs) has been poking at this dead horse. Even though much of his editing has been deletion of commented-out German text, I’m not sure that’s constructive. Personally, I think the page should either be deleted completely or merged into the existing set of talk pages and Commons:WikiProject BSicon. Your thoughts? Useddenim (talk) 13:23, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Oumph... "last update: 12:57, Apr 2 2007 (UTC)" – that is, six days after I first edited Wikipedia... So really, don't ask me what to do with it... I wouldn't mind if it gets deleted, but I do not advise anything here... YLSS (talk) 14:32, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

File:BSicon exÜWur.svgEdit

If you want me to delete that file, you need to replace it on the userpages where it appears. It's not nice to unnecessarily orphan the links on those people's pages. Once you do that, I'll happily speedy it for you. In the mean time, I have removed the speedy request again. Sven Manguard Wha? 19:08, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

You know... I do not ask you to do anything with that page. There's a dozen other admins who routinely delete such redirects – just because they trust those members of COM:WPBS who routinely rename these icons and replace their usage. WRT user pages: the majority of them are galleries of BSicons that are long neglected, and it is expected that the files will go redlink (or blank) under the obsolete titles. Some even have notices that they should not be updated in case of renaming, but should show the historical state of affairs. And some are abandoned sandboxes; those that are more or less recent, I do update. And to finish off, in ja.wp, for example, editing other users' pages is prohibited. YLSS (talk) 19:16, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Request for adminshipEdit

Hi, YLSS. Unfortunately wikiproject BSicon has no administrators. Have you thought about being an administrator? That case you can delete your own trash. Taivo (talk) 18:10, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Whew... Well, I am really grateful for your proposal, but I think I can't accept it... Adminship requires quite a lot of responsibility and quite a lot of time, while I won't boast of the former, and I'm going to lack the latter quite soon. I have dealt with several admins that showed more or less abuse of their powers, and I'm afraid of going down that track — I already noticed that I sometimes show disrespect to unregistered users, even though I had edited only as an IP myself for several years. If it was possible to limit the admin tools to pages with "File:BSicon" prefix only, I would be thrilled to get them; but I don't have any desire to deal with other things...
That said, maybe it would be better if I periodically make some lists of things to be deleted instead of tagging them one by one?
Once again, thanks for you kind suggestion... YLSS (talk) 09:49, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
I am not sure about making lists of files, which need deletion. You can do such list and if I see it, then I can periodically delete the files. But I am not every day in Commons. What then? You can note to others. Taivo (talk) 20:29, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Shifted overlaysEdit

Okay, So I understand the concept of d icons and (generally) how they work, but I was having difficulty in applying that to en:Racine (CTA Blue Line station). At the top of the diagram are three track lines. One heading "f", one in the middle, and one heading "g." As of right now the middle track (which abruptly stops) is composed of overlays of a left and a right half to form a track in between the others. What I wanted was a CONT arrow in between the two existing tracks (hence the request for left and right halves). Attempting to overlay with "d" icons so far hasn't enabled me to get this as one of the other pieces is now offset in the wrong place. I'm not sure how to fix this.

Here you are. You just have to "imagine" the middle CONT arrow to be a full-width icon, and to realise where that icon "starts" and "ends", speaking horizontally. The starting point would be precisely half-way across   (uCONTfa), so we should "leave" only half of it: we place it on top of   (d), so that it takes only 10px in width instead of 20px and the next icon will "start" at that point;   (uCONTfa) itself will be positioned just like if it wasn't overlaid at all. Similarly, the middle arrow should "end" just before the right arrow starts, so it should take only 10px instead of 20px, and we overlay it on top of   (d), once again. So we have three full-width icons (3×20px) that take up 10+10+20=40px, as if there were only two. YLSS (talk) 07:31, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
I see my mistake now. When adding the "d" pieces, I forgot to expand the number of rows by 1. Silly me. Thanks! Lost on Belmont (talk) 21:48, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

What are you doing?!Edit

moved to Talk:BSicon/Renaming#Diagonal + curve

P.S. It’s easier to reupload the correct geometry instead of going through the whole (temp) renaming exercise. Useddenim (talk) 18:29, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Of course it is. But somehow I dislike seeing an icon uploaded on top of a different one. With my own uploads I can tolerate that, but I struggle not to do that with others' uploads. YLSS (talk) 19:30, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
I don’t see it as a problem regardless of who the original uploader was, so no offense taken if you over-write my work. Useddenim (talk) 01:49, 16 July 2014 (UTC)


Just leave that Asperger infant be. You begin to look funnier when you try to sincerely reason with him. I wanted to retort him, but I felt I will look as silly as him if I start any conversation with such creature. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 04:20, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Ich denke es ist, aber 12h Uhren werden in Category:Time 00:00 zu Category:Time 11:59 kategorisiert, unabhängig von der Tageszeit. Siehe die Anmerkungen auf Category:Time 00:17 und Category:Time 12:17. YLSS (talk) 19:50, 6 October 2014 (UTC)


Thank you very much for your comments. I searched the icons in the categories but has not been possible to find them. I'm sorry. From now on , I will use notepad to create icons, if necessary. Best regards. Monmr (talk) 08:40, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

No problem. If you have any questions, ask at Talk:BSicon and subpages, we'll be glad to help you! YLSS (talk) 08:42, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Here's my shared Google Drive folder[2]. It contains Moscow Metro maps which are updated for the opening of Troparyovo and new livery colors of TPK and Kozhukhovskaya Line. In case I am absent when Troparyovo opens, you may update the maps on Commons for me. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 03:21, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

BS vs PLTEdit

About this: While I can remember a discussion where everybody agreed that "BS" is a terrible choice (only two letters, and one more thing starting with "B") and that "PLT" may be a better choice, I don’t remember and cannot find any discussion saying that "BS" is pretty good after all and that all use of "PLT" should be replaced. -- Tuválkin 00:07, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Well, I was unable to find any discussion like that, only Circeus's note here, where he proposed (PLF). (I don't think that confusion with (BST) is anyhow possible, and if anything, (BS2) can and should be got rid off.) And then there was this discussion, where Useddenim proposed yet another root, (PFM)... And also I explained my thoughts why it would be better to keep it as ROOT+ROOT, and to keep (BS) – but nobody cared to answer... Please note that I did not go straight away with that, those half-width I renamed back in May; and (leer+BS) →   (BS) I renamed in September. It appeared at User:AlgaeGraphix/BSicon 103 – did anybody notice?.. All in all, I'm quite neutral on what is better – (BS) or (PLT) or anything; but I have no desire to rename   (STR+BSl) and the rest, especially since they are quite good as they are; on the other hand, I managed to move pretty much all of (PLT)s in a single day (except a couple that puzzle me). If you wish, feel free to rename them back, but that would necessitate renaming   (STR+BSl) & co. – spare me that! YLSS (talk) 09:44, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

better placeEdit

Hi YLSS, I'm sure you know a better for User:Circeus/BSicon renaming/Non-rail crossings this userspace discussions. Moreover: My old lame PC is running into deep problems opening some of the BSicon discussion tree. Could you please divide those talks into smaller portions and create in index to all discussions on the tree root? I guess you're the only one, who still has the overview ... :-} Thanks in advance! a×pdeHello! 08:23, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Axpde, I removed that note from Circeus's page (shouldn't have posted it there in the first place). WRT Talk:BSicon subpages, I'll see what I can do... But I only remember more or less those discussions that started only after I got enmeshed with this business, discovering earlier ones is often quite a surprise for me.

Blue hour vs. TwilightEdit

Привет! Собственно, у меня возник вопрос после этой правки. Как определяется, что это не просто сумерки (twilight), но ещё и blue hour? Почитал статьи ru:режимное время & Blue hour — и все равно остались непонятки. Есть предположения, что это — середина сумерек, но не уверен. Не объясните? Спасибо. --Brateevsky {talk} 08:43, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Честно — понятия не имею! ;) Именно поэтому не перекидывал фотки из Category:Twilight in Moscow в Category:Blue hour in Moscow, а только лишь из Category:Blue hour in Russia (поскольку их всё равно в какую-то московскую категорию надо было), плюс вашу (поскольку её всё равно надо было убрать из родительской Category:Twilights of Russia, а вы её помимо этого поместили в Category:Blue sunsets), ну и собственно ту, которую я изначально и хотел куда-нибудь засунуть. Вообще я предполагаю, что blue hour — это когда всё очень-очень синее, и то есть небо ещё не чёрное (и не серое), но уже и освещение явно не дневное... Ну то есть как в Blue hour написано, синие волны солнечного света ещё пока преломляются атмосферой и всё освещают, а красные уже не доходят. По идее должны искажаться цвета объектов (тех, что не под фонарями). Не уверен, что тут стоит опираться на описание режимного времени... Понятия, похоже, часто пересекающиеся, но всё же тут категория называется именно Blue hour. YLSS (talk) 10:36, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Спасибо. По-моему, всё правильно сделали! ну и я кое-что понял. :) --Brateevsky {talk} 11:08, 9 January 2015 (UTC)


Потому, что категории надо добавлять только того, что в центре внимания на фотке, а не того, что можно разглядеть только под лупой. Прекратите заниматься ерундой, лучше позаботьтесь о тысячах загрузок из России, которые вообще никаких категорий не имеют. --A.Savin 16:22, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Кто вам такое сказал? Категории нужны для того, чтобы составить наиболее полную информацию о чём-либо, и если какая-то фотография позволяет её получить, то стоит её в эту категорию добавить. Если какой-то объект расположен на заднем плане, то не значит, что конкретно такой его вид не будет интересен человеку, ищущему что-то подобное. Возможно, именно на этой фотографии и будет виден тот аспект, который он хочет найти. Если в соответствующей категории получится много файлов, то всегда можно будет выделить подкатегории, пусть даже "Something in background" или "Partial views of something". Данное фото вполне неплохого размера и качества, при желании из него можно вырезать кусочки, акцентирующие внимание на чём-то конкретном. Например, из него видно, что у нас в Москве светоотражающую одежду носят в том числе водители трамваев; что рекламные плакаты вешают на железнодорожных путепроводах, причём так, чтобы они были вровень с нижним уровнем перекрытия; что даже одни из самых простых видов московских фонарей имеют какую-то причудливую ковку у основания, ну а выломанная дверца — вообще шик. И да, всё это на одной фотографии. Если бы вы сфотографировали все эти объекты ещё и поотдельности, в тот же момент времени, — то да, этот файл можно было бы не категоризировать как не несущий дополнительной информации. А так он несёт. YLSS (talk) 16:40, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Есть не только правила, но и здравый смысл. При желании на любой панораме или уличной сцене можно разыскать несколько десятков мотивов, которые теоретически можно запихнуть в отдельную категорию. Но пятнадцать категорий - это слишком. Даже я тогда путаюсь окончательно и не могу разыскать важные категории среди такого количества третьестепенных, чего уж говорить об ординарном пользователе, для которого и делается Викисклад. --A.Savin 17:04, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Почему это для ординарных? Он для всех делается. Ординарные, я вам больше скажу, испугаются самого понятия категорий, ибо на фейсбуке таких нет. Важные категории можно передвинуть первыми в коде, их порядок сохранится и на итоговой странице, это пожалуйста. Опять же, на фотографии уличной сцены одни люди могут обратить внимание на какой-то один объект или событие, а другие — на совершенно иной, заренее не предугадаешь. На панораме теоретически может быть хоть сотня категорий типа "Remote views of something" (хотя лучше бы они автоматически подставлялись через рамки на фото). Так что большого количества категорий бояться не стоит. Вот пожалуйста: +22 категории, в результате файл стало одним из всего пяти в Category:Tram track ends, одним из шести в Category:Trams with advertisement in Moscow, одним из восьми в Category:Reflections in pavement, дополнил весьма скудную на данный момент Category:Rain in Russia, ну и положил начало Category:Photographs taken on 2010-11-08.
