Category:Spiral staircases in the United StatesEdit

Hello Auntof6, This category was deleted as were all the Spiral staircase categories. I noticed you added to it. To me "Spiral staircases" is needed and would be a help to Category:Staircases. But it seems I have to prove that this category is different from Category:Spiral stairs To me it is as many images were categorized because they had "Spiral staircase" in the file name. Thanks, Krok6kola (talk) 14:50, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

@Krok6kola: I'm not sure what you want from me on this. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:44, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Вікі любить пам'ятки 2020 в Україні / Wiki Loves Monuments 2020 in UkraineEdit


З 1 по 30 вересня вже традиційно пройде українська частина міжнародного фотоконкурсу «Вікі любить пам'ятки»! На конкурс можна подавати власні фото пам'яток історико-культурної спадщини України — і змагатися за призи. Більше можна прочитати за посиланням.

Радимо ознайомитися із детальними правилами, а також із відповідями на часті питання. З найважливіших змін цього року:

  • у номінації «За найбільшу кількість сфотографованих пам’яток» — збільшився додатковий бал за фотографії пам'яток (якщо світлин пам'ятки раніше не було завантажено, то можна отримати 21 бал.

Нагадаємо, що всі 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.

Цього року теж є спецномінації «Єврейська спадщина», «Млини» та «Відео». Також є спеціальна номінація від проєкту «Via Regia Ukraine» — у ній автоматично беруть участь світлини всіх пам’яток міст України, через які пролягає Via RegiaДубно, Рівне, Острог, Львів, Броди, Городок (Львівська область), Луцьк, Володимир-Волинський, Радомишль, Житомир та Київ. Цього року у Завантажувачі не передбачено окремих параметрів для спецномінацій — світлини зараховуватимуться автоматично з відповідних списків.

Усі номінації та спецномінації конкурсу описані тут.


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

Category:Specific people who have died with COVID-19Edit

Hi. How do you find this cat name? --E4024 (talk) 19:14, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

@E4024: "Specific people" sounds like the category would be for subcats only, and such a category would normally have a name like "People who have died with COVID-19 by name". However, this category contains individual files, so maybe it should just be called "People who have died with COVID-19".
Also, the preposition "with" indicates that the people had COVID-19 when they died, but it wasn't necessarily the cause of death. I don't think we have (or even need) categories like that, so we might want to say "from COVID-19" and make sure that that's what the included people died of.
Are you considering proposing a rename? --Auntof6 (talk) 21:05, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
No. I am hoping that you take the initiative. I'm afraid people are bored of my CfDs. Indeed do not even open a CfD (they remain for years without result) but just move it; and to your discretion. If anybody says anything I will defend you. Best. --E4024 (talk) 21:10, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Literary paintingsEdit

Hi Auntof6. In a recent edit, you deleted the link between Category:Literary paintings and Category:Mythological paintings by subject. You probably had a reason for this, but you did not state it, which would have been a good idea when you are removing links, except when there has been an obvious error. The link was not an error. Yes, Literary paintings have their own subject in the system of paintings by subject, but they are not one of the 11 genres of paintings. So in order to make them fit into the genre system, it was necessary to make a link to mythological paintings (which is a genre). Because literature is a form of creating mythology. If you do not submit to this kind of reasoning, please state so - otherwise you are expected to revert your edit. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 17:20, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

@Rsteen: Sorry, I'll try to remember that -- I did state a reason on some other removals, such as this one. The reason for this removal was that not all literature is mythological. For example, Category:Literary paintings contains Category:Works of Shakespeare in paintings. Some of Shakespeare's works have mythological characters or themes, but not all (for example, Hamlet and Othello, which are both represented in the category). Since literature is not a subset of mythology -- in fact, the opposite is more true -- maybe literary works in and of themselves don't fit under genre -- or should be their own genre? Is it written somewhere that there are only 11 genres? --Auntof6 (talk) 19:47, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi again. Actually it does make sense to see literature as the creation of myths. This is just a broader definition of mythology - not specified as greek, roman, norse and so on, but mythology seen as based on "stories". In that way it fits, and it becomes possible to get to these paintings from the mythology genre. As to the 11 genres, they are (for instance) shown at the top of Category:Paintings by genre. The point is that some users swear to the genre system and expect to find paintings according to genres (as opposed to subjects). So, in order to make this possible, items are categorized so they fit into the genres. Literary paintings also did that - until you removed the link. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 15:13, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi again. Your lack of response may be seen as a sign of lack of interest in this subject on your part. However, it is important to other users, so for that reason the link you deleted has been restored. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 12:05, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

a categoryEdit

I used this long standing category Category:Bodies of water by continent by country as a model. Isn't it wrongly named also? Thanks Hmains (talk) 05:13, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

@Hmains: I would say it's wrongly named, yes. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:44, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
I have now moved it. Hmains (talk) 15:01, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
and Category:Wetlands by continent by country seems to be another. There may be a whole collection of these. Hmains (talk) 05:14, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

Category:Reigious stained-glass windowsEdit

Sorry, do not understand this category. We already have Bible events categorised as such. Unless "reigious" is a word with which I am not familiar? Rodhullandemu (talk) 07:43, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

@Rodhullandemu: Sorry, I misspelled it. I have fixed the misspelling. Note, however, that there is more to being religious than being a Bible event/story -- baptism, eucharist, rosaries, etc., which are all represented in the subcategories. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:47, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
