Thanks re: Category:Churches in MunichEdit

I went in to knock out some more of these this morning and found you had gone and finished the remaining to be done. Thank you very much for the help! Josh (talk) 16:27, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

@Joshbaumgartner: You're welcome. I hope I got everything, including all the subcats. I wonder if there are any other categories that need to be changed from München to Munich. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:31, 29 July 2019 (UTC)


The United Nations Operation in the Congo is generally abbreviated as ONUC. See for instance [1], [2], [3] or en:United Nations Operation in the Congo. I propose to rename back c:Category:Swedish Army in UNOC to c:Category:Swedish Army in ONUC (and all the similar categories), and to rename c:Category:UNOC into c:Category:ONUC. Is that ok for you?--Le Petit Chat (talk) 20:18, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

@Le Petit Chat: If you want to do that, I recommend opening a CFD first because you'd be reversing the outcome of another CFD. This CFD is the reason I renamed those two: all the other categories used UNOC. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:17, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
Ok. I don't know how to create a CFD so I will give up. UNOC remains an acceptable "alternative" name for ONUC.--Le Petit Chat (talk) 21:24, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

Category:Western AustraliaEdit

No worries. I put the categorize template on three weeks ago after I cleared almost 800 images out of Category:Western Australia and placed them in more precise WA categories. I changed it to the other template a few hours, wondering whether it might be the better choice, ago and you changed it back. I'm perfectly fine with either as long as the category doesn't get flooded again with images that really could go somewhere else. Re-categorising a few at a time as they come in is easy enough, clearing 800 out is a bit harder! Thanks for letting me know, Calistemon (talk) 08:02, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

@Calistemon: Having the catcat template wouldn't stop people from adding files anyway. If it's a category you want to keep an eye on, you could watch it and use the "category changes" filter in your watchlist. That way you'd see anything added or removed. That's actually how I noticed this: I watch Category:Categories requiring permanent diffusion to zero, so I saw this category show up there. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:12, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
I'm keeping a regular eye on the category. I'm happy for new images to go in there and to re categorise them from there. Thanks for the advise, I will look into it. Calistemon (talk) 08:18, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
Amazing: 12 years on Wikipedia and I never new the "category changes filter" tool existed! Thank you very much for that hint! Calistemon (talk) 00:13, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
@Calistemon: Don't feel bad -- it's pretty new. There used to be a few filters you could activate via checkboxes, but the new system has more options. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:58, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Вікі любить пам'ятки 2019 в УкраїніEdit


1 вересня вже традиційно стартує українська частина міжнародного фотоконкурсу «Вікі любить пам'ятки»! До кінця вересня Ви можете подавати власні фото пам'яток історико-культурної спадщини України — і змагатися за призи. Більше про те, як взяти участь, можна прочитати за посиланням.

Із детальними правилами можна ознайомитися тут. Для тих, хто раніше уже брав участь у конкурсі — зауважте, що цього року є певні зміни:

  • у номінації «Найкраще фото» — файли повинні мати не менше 4 МПкс;
  • у номінації «За найбільшу кількість сфотографованих пам’яток» — оцінка фотографії пам'ятки складається із суми базового та додаткових балів (в останній враховується чи ця пам'ятка вже фотографувалася іншими авторами та скільки фотографій пам'яток уже є з цього населеного пункту);

Нагадаємо, що фотографії автоматично беруть участь у номінації «За найбільшу кількість сфотографованих пам’яток»; однак для того, щоб фото позмагалося у номінації «Найкраще фото», потрібно підтвердити це при завантаженні.

Також цього року маємо спецномінації «Єврейська спадщина» та «Млини». Також окремо відзначатимуться найкращі відео із пам'ятками.


Зі списками пам'яток можна ознайомитися тут. Більше інформації про конкурс дивіться у блозі конкурсу. Щоб отримувати інформацію про новинки у конкурсі — підпишіться на наші блог та сторінку у фейсбук.

Якщо у Вас є запитання, можете звертатися wlm чи у фейсбук – З повагою, Оргкомітет «Вікі любить пам'ятки». 19:04, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

Orinda stationEdit

Why'd you decide to move the category? There isn't any other Orinda station to disambiguate it from; the enwiki article is at en:Orinda station. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 08:28, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

@Pi.1415926535: I thought I was seeing that all the BART stations had that qualifier, but now that I look again I see others that don't have it. Sorry about that. It's not letting me do the move back because the redirect now exists, so would you mind doing the move back? Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:33, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Will do! Station naming can be confusing, especially with systems like BART that share many station names with other systems. I tend to follow en:WP:USSTATION when naming Commons categories - it has certainly simplified naming on enwiki, but it isn't always easy to figure out whether a parenthetical disambiguation is needed.

Wine shops by regionEdit

Bonjour, Marianne. I noticed that you created categories for wine shops in the regions of France, and marked them as metacategories. Category:Wine shops in France by region is a metacat, because the category name indicates a sort criterion (region) to show that each subcategory is for an individual region. However, Category:Wine shops in Hauts-de-France is not a metacategory because the name doesn't specify a sort criterion. I have removed the metacat template from several of those categories, and I'm letting you know so that you can stop adding it. If you have any questions, feel free to let me know. Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 08:43, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Ok, no problem. Marianne Casamance (talk) 09:36, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
