Вікі любить пам'ятки 2018 в УкраїніEdit


1 вересня вже традиційно стартувала українська частина міжнародного фотоконкурсу «Вікі любить пам'ятки»! До 30 вересня включно Ви можете подавати власні фото пам'яток історико-культурної спадщини України — і змагатися за призи. Цього року є трохи змін у правилах конкурсу:

  • фотографії пам'яток, для яких на момент початку конкурсу (відповідно до відомої Організаційному комітету інформації) не було жодної ілюстрації на Вікісховищі або у Вікіпедії, отримують коефіцієнт рівний 7 (для кожної пам'ятки);
  • фотографії автоматично вантажаться у категорію, яка бере учать у номінації за найбільшу кількість сфотографованих об'єктів, для того, щоб фото позмагалося у номінації за найкраще фото потрібно вибрати необхідні налаштування у завантажувачі;
  • окремо буде нагороджено десять конкурсантів-новачків (тобто таких, які ще не брали участі у попередніх конкурсах «Вікі любить пам'ятки» в Україні), які сфотографували найбільше пам'яток.

Також у конкурсі є спецномінація банерів для статей у Вікімандрах, детальніше за посиланням.

Приєднуйтеся! Зі списками пам'яток можна ознайомитися тут. Більше інформації про конкурс дивіться у блозі конкурсу. Якщо у Вас є запитання, можете звертатися wlm – З повагою, Оргкомітет «Вікі любить пам'ятки» 23:07, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

File:HA Neuhaus Mappe1 Militaria Kays Königl Generalitäts... 1817.jpgEdit

Hello, Auntof6. Would you be so kind to help me to describe this picture and help me to put it into the correct Categories? I do not really know what that is exactly named nor what this is. But I am very sure, that some people will see it. I am sorry, normally I speak german, my English is not very well. Greetings from Linz, Austria. Zabia (talk) 15:33, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

@Zabia: I'm sorry, but I can't identify anything in it. Are you looking for categories for a particular subject area? A good place to ask for help is Commons:Village pump. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:43, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much, I will do it. 04:42, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Regions of peruEdit

Hi, Auntof6! To create a navigation by regions of Peru, you can also use the metatemplate Template:Navigation by/administrative division. This saves you from having to enter all the region names manually in the template, and it also displays all region names translated to the user's language.

For example, you could create a Template:Navigation by regions of Peru like this:

<includeonly><onlyinclude>{{Navigation by|administrative division
 | item = Q419
 | level = children
 | pattern = {{{pattern|<<region>>}}}
 | redlinks = {{{redlinks|yes}}}
 | style = {{{style|box}}}
}}</onlyinclude></includeonly>{{Documentation|content={{Navigation by/templatedoc|variable=state|pattern=Buildings in <<region>>}}}}

[[Category:Category navigational templates for Peru|Regions of Peru]]
[[Category:Internationalised navigational templates|Regions of Peru]]
[[Category:Regions of Peru|~Navigation]]

That template can then be used like this: {{Navigation by regions of Peru|pattern=Buildings in <<region>>}}

This could help to save you some work when creating such navigation bars. --Reinhard Müller (talk) 08:45, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

@Reinhard Müller: Thanks -- I'll definitely try that if I create such a template.
It seems like the flag at the left of the output of templates that use that template take up a lot of room. Can it be reformatted somehow? --Auntof6 (talk) 12:33, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
The flag currently is formatted with 50px width, I took this suggestion from Template:Navbox. It looks good on my computer screen, but I guess it might be too big for a mobile device. What would you think is a good width? --Reinhard Müller (talk) 13:07, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
My preference would be no flag, or a tiny flag in the heading. Otherwise, it makes the box take up more vertical space than necessary. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:35, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
I've looked at a few other navigation boxes, especially such based on Template:Navbox, and many of them seem to use a graphic either left or right inside the box. I'm by no means a professional designer, but I always felt that such a graphical element makes the overall appearance of such a box more attractive. I now made it smaller so the box should now not take significantly more vertical space than without it. --Reinhard Müller (talk) 21:58, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
It still takes up more room than necessary, at least on the mobile device I'm using. I haven't had a chance yet to see what it looks like on my laptop. Looking at just the example that displays on the template itself, there should be room to display all the states of Austria on one line, but the space taken up by the flag, including the wide white space to the left and right, forces them to use two lines. When I look at Template:Presidents of the United States, the graphic does not have these wide margins.
Another issue may be that I'm looking for something to use on categories, not on gallery pages where a lot of these seem to be used. On a category, you want to use as little vertical space as possible so that you don't have to scroll past too much to get to the actual category entries. The templates we've been discussing do indeed look nice, but I prefer minimal use of space on category pages. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:30, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Strange. The only white space I can see to the left and right is what results in the line break, when I change the browser window width so that all items just fit into one line, there's virtually no white space to the left and right.
The template actually is designed to be used on category pages. I do agree that we should not waste space on the top of category pages, but I think that a single line is not a high price for a more appealing design :-) --Reinhard Müller (talk) 08:23, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Maybe it just doesn't display well on mobile devices. (The one I'm using, by the way, is an eight-inch Kindle Fire.) I'll try to check on my laptop in the next few days, but I'm not likely to use that format while it looks like that on my tablet. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:35, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Out of curiosity: do you use the mobile view or the desktop view? I thought that the Template:Navbox is by design completely suppressed in the mobile view. --Reinhard Müller (talk) 09:35, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
I use the desktop view. What I see on Template:Navigation by/administrative division, to explain more completely, is the flag centered in the left half of the box, and the list of states centered in the right half (across two lines because there isn't space for them all on one line). --Auntof6 (talk) 09:57, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

@Reinhard Müller: I emailed you the screenshot you wanted. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:52, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

My apologiesEdit

I accidentally did a rollback on a recent edit of yours. Thankfully Bidgee noticed my mistake and corrected my error. My apologies, I am not sure how the rollback happened. —RP88 (talk) 10:00, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

No worries -- I've done the same thing several times! Thanks for letting me know. --Auntof6 (talk) 12:34, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Why ?Edit

Why do yo cancel this important category? here and here. DenghiùComm (talk) 18:32, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

@DenghiùComm: Looking at those changes now, I don't know why I removed that category. The only guess I have is that the category was getting added by something else, so I didn't think it needed to be hardcoded. Many times recently I've seen either the creator template or the Wikidata infobox add categories: maybe it was something like that, and the underlying data or code changed after I removed the category. I can't tell now, but I agree that the category needs to be there one way or another. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:16, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

Quick questionEdit

Aloha! Why did you remove the cat here? Just curious. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:26, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

@Hedwig in Washington: Category:African American history by location is a metacat so the file doesn't belong there. The logical place to move the file to would be Category:African American history, but it's already in a subcat of that (Category:African American history of the 1920s), so I just removed the metacat. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:16, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
  I didn't notice the meta cat part. I knew you had a good reason. Thanks for cleaning up!   --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 06:35, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
@Hedwig in Washington: No problem. I'm always happy to explain why I did something. :) --Auntof6 (talk) 07:37, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Cats with “by (property)” in their name are almost always meta, whether tagged as such or not.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 18:35, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
