KategorierEdit

Hei Blue Elf, jeg ser du har lastet opp en del som ikke er kategorisert ([1]). Tar du en kikk på Commons:Categories? Jeg puttet f.eks. Image:IMG 1146a - Bø kirke.jpg i Category:Churches of Nordland. Hilsen Kjetil_r 00:10, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Jeg har vært sløv med kategoriseringa ja. Skal skjerpe meg med det. --Blue Elf 17:04, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Fishing boats/shipsEdit

Hi Blue Elf. I notice you have a tag on Category:Fishing boats and Category:Fishing ships, suggesting they be merged. However, you don't seems to have given your reasons for this. In my view, as an editor who writes a lot of the articles on fishing vessels on the English wiki, the merger would not be a good idea. Most fishing vessels are boats, that is, small vessels which are definitely not ships. Similarly, it is not really appropriate to refer to large blue water factory ships as "boats". If the categories are to be changed at all, it would be better if they were both replaced with Category:Fishing vessels. --Geronimo20 (talk) 02:45, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Blue Elf!

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:

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").

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.

File:Mývatn11.jpgEdit

I was working on cleaning up some of the Commons maintenance backlog and came across the above file was just wondering why you placed a No Source {{Nsd}} template on the image. The information template has Own Work by uploaded, the image seems full size and has EXIF data. Do you have some reason to believe that the image was not taken by the uploader? Thanks. --Captain-tucker (talk) 16:27, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

I don't remember why I placed the No Source template on it - when I look at it now it seems as strange to me as it did to you. So I have removed the template again. Sorry for that. Blue Elf (talk) 20:04, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Not a problem and thanks. --Captain-tucker (talk) 20:53, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

ski jumpEdit

Hi Blue Elf,

I'm wondering if you can give me any further information on the ski jump picture you posted?

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Snowflake_ski_jump_%28January_23,_2010%29.JPG

I've written a novel about ski jumping in the 1930's and I'm wondering how close this is.

Thanks! Rachel from Wisconsin, USA

Hi Rachel. I see you found the photographer, Farmercarlos on English Wikipedia. I think the best I can do, is to point you to the English Wikipedia article about the ski jumping hill, and to the article about it on the site Skisprungschanzen-Archiv (in English). Both of them have coordinates / map reference. I believe Snowflake is the sixth biggest ski jumping hill in the US, after the ski flying hill in Ironwood, Michigan (which isn't used anymore) and the big hills in Iron Mountain (also in Michigan), Park City, Lake Placid and Steamboat Springs. It would be interesting to read your novel! Blue Elf (talk) 21:20, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

File:Frozen Lake Huron- icebreakers and commercial vessels.jpgEdit

Hello!

Why did you remove Category:Lakers (ships) from the image? --High Contrast (talk) 16:41, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I removed it because the ship Canadian Transport was in it, and I thought the ship was already categorized as a laker, so this picture didn't need to have that category as well. It turns out that it wasn't (I should have checked!), but I have now added the laker category to the ship. But you can of course put Category:Lakers (ships) back on for this image.

OslobilderEdit

Hei, god jobb du gjør med å overføre bilder fra oslobilder.no! Jeg var inne og tittet litt på siden, men hvordan får du egentlig lastet de ned? Må du putte de i handlekurven og trille den ut? – Danmichaelo (δ) 23:09, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Takk. Jeg laster ned bildene på vanlig måte (høyreklikke, "Lagre bilde som") og lagrer dem på min egen PC. Museet har jo versjoner med høyere oppløsning, men dem må man bestille og betale for. Men den versjonen som ligger på nettet (Oslobilder og/eller Digitalt Museum) med denne lisensen er til fri bruk. Når jeg laster opp, liker jeg det gamle skjemaet best, så da velger jeg "Tilbake til det gamle skjemaet" i opplastingsveiviseren, og deretter "It is from somewhere else".
Jeg hadde plukket ut en god del interessante bilder alt i forrige uke, men jeg så at det kunne bli mange etter hvert, så jeg ville maile Oslo Museum for sikkerhets skyld før jeg tok altfor mange, som jeg skrev på Torget. Nå når svaret er klart og positivt, så kjører jeg i gang og laster opp flere. Blue Elf (talk) 23:26, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Flott at du sjekket opp, og takk for tipset om siden! Egentlig kunne man jo ønsket seg at institusjoner drevet hovedsaklig på statlig/kommunale tilskudd gjorde full oppløsning tilgjengelig når de først har gjort arbeidet med å klarere rettighetene, men dette er selvfølgelig et stort steg å ta. Oppløsningen på bildene er jo heller slett ikke så værst, og tydeligvis bedre enn før :) Mye interessante bilder – og hele 48 829 med CC-BY-SA! Skal se om jeg får lastet opp litt jeg også etterhvert. – Danmichaelo (δ) 07:55, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Hei igjen, jeg har visst ikke fått lastet opp noe særlig, men har ryddet litt og tenkt litt på hvordan vi kan unngå duplikater fra oslobilder.no etterhvert som det blir mange bilder, og også hvordan vi generelt kan holde oversikt, og har i den forbindelse snekret sammen et verktøy som jeg tror kan være nyttig, basert på sider merket med {{Oslobilder}}. Det er ikke alt som virker helt enda (miniatyrbilder for bilder med æøå i filnavnet f.eks.), men prøv det gjerne ut, og si fra hvis du kommer på noe lurt som mangler :) Hvis jeg får tid, kunne jeg også tenkt meg å lage et verktøy for assistert overføring, ála flickr2commons. – Danmichaelo (δ) 16:40, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Kjempebra. Førsteinntrykket er at det fungerer greit og gir en god oversikt. Det er en stund siden jeg lastet opp bilder fra Oslobilder nå, men det kommer nok mer etter hvert. Et verktøy for assistert overføring ville være veldig praktisk hvis du får anledning til å lage det, for selv om det går greit å legge inn det som bør være med når man laster opp bilder fra Oslobilder, så tar det tid å få med alt. Det verktøyet jeg har brukt når jeg har hentet bilder fra Flickr er Flinfo, som jeg synes fungerer veldig bra. Blue Elf (talk) 19:30, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee


Delivered by Orbot1 (talk) at 08:53, 19 January 2013 (UTC) - you are receiving this message because you voted last year

Kyrkje eller kirkeEdit

Hei! Commons er er jo et flerspråklig prosjekt og det er like riktig at en kategori heter kirke som at den heter noe med kyrkje. Jeg ser ikke helt hensikten med forslagene dine. Jeg kommer til å ta det opp på nynorsk-utgaven av WP. Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 19:17, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Jeg synes det kan være naturlig å ha kategorinavn med kyrkje for kirkene i de delene av landet der nynorsk brukes, altså hovedsakelig på Vestlandet. Jeg har ikke tenkt å foreslå flytting av kategorier for de kirkene, eller der det kan være usikkert hva som bør velges. Men det er ikke logisk å bruke kyrkje om kirker i Nord-Norge eller i Vestfold der ingen lokale bruker den formen. Det finnes ingen lokale som snakker om Sortland kyrkje, man sier Sortland kjerke (eller Sortlandskjerka) og skriver Sortland kirke. Vi bør vel holde oss til enten bokmål eller nynorsk, og da er bokmålsformen den eneste som faktisk brukes skriftlig. Tilsvarende gjelder for kirker i mange andre fylker.
Dette med nynorsk og bokmål kan være en utfordring når vi har kategorier med norske navn, og jeg synes vi godt kan foretrekke former som i størst mulig grad fungerer på begge målformene, f.eks. veg selv om jeg egentlig liker vei best. For slikt som kirker blir det vanskeligere. Slik det er nå, er det ikke konsekvent og logisk i det hele tatt. Kirkekategoriene i f.eks. Nordland og Vestfold finnes med navn både på bokmål, nynorsk og engelsk. Det trengs å ryddes opp i. Jeg mener vi bør bruke den norske formen (kirke eller kyrkje) som kirkefolket selv bruker. Blue Elf (talk) 19:56, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Jeg tok det for øvrig opp på Commons-Tinget i april i fjor, men fikk liten respons. Det er fremdeles behov for å få ryddet opp i disse kategorinavnene. Blue Elf (talk) 20:05, 30 January 2013 (UTC) Vil bare legge til at jeg ikke hadde tenkt å starte noen klassisk språkdiskusjon, for de fører nesten aldri til noe konstruktivt. Poenget var å gjøre kategorinavnene logiske og konsekvente. Vi har vel som prinsipp at oppslagsord og kategorinavn skal være på en form som flest mulig forventer å finne dem. Blue Elf (talk) 21:07, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Eg voner at Anne-Sophie då og vil nemne den totale mangelen på respekt for andre sitt valg som Jorunn viste då ho henta bilete frå lokalhistoriewiki.no. Ho døypte om filer frå bokmålsområde i mellom anna Østfold til landsmål, noko som ikkje gjer det lettare å finne att bileta. Eg såg i haust at det framleis ligg merknader på bilete på lokalhistoriewiki.no som seier noko liknande "Jorunn, vennligst respekter mitt målvalg". Eg kan ikkje seie anna enn at Blue Elf gjer vel når han freister å få eit skikkeleg system som og respekterar kyrkjene sine rette namn. Noorse (talk) 20:57, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Til Blue Elf. Jeg har ganske god oversikt over kirkekategoriene her på Commons ettersom jeg bl.a. har laget kategorier og ryddet i mange av bildene som kom inn til WLM sist og første gang det ble arrangert; jeg er derfor klar over at det er mangel på konsistens her. Beklager om jeg virket brå i henvendelsen min, fikk nok litt hakeslepp ved første øyekast. Nei, regner ikke med at du ønsker noen språkstrid og jeg ser jo at hensikten er god i tillegg til at det må ryddes opp i. Du skriver at du har tatt det opp på Commons-Tinget og det så jeg for ikke så lenge siden, jeg var inntil ganske nylig ikke klar over at vi har eget Ting her og det tror jeg gjelder flere av bidragsyterne fra nb og nn.
Til Noorse; det må du nesten ta opp med henne, jeg aner ikke noe om hvem hun er eller hva hun har gjort, har bare sett navnet hennes her på Commons, tror jeg. Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 00:16, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Jeg aner heller ikke noe om henne, annet enn det jeg viser til mht manglende respekt og hvordan andre reagerer på det. Dermed kan jeg ikke si annet enn at du er hjertelig velkommen til å ta det dersom veiene deres krysses senere. Noorse (talk) 16:41, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Bjørnskinn kirke 02.JPG. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Hurtigruten by locationEdit

Hi Blue Elf; greetings from Switzerland and thanks for your "Hurtigruten by location" categorization, I think that's a really good idea! Just a quick question on how you envision this category... I think there are two possible approaches. Either one could list only ships there which were in Hurtigruten service when the picture was taken, or all Hurtigruten ships, also former ones. For example, when I took File:Nordstjernen-fjordsteam-01.jpg at the Fjordsteam festival in Bergen in August, the Nordstjernen was already no longer a Hurtigruten ship (sold to new owners, renovated in Poland etc. - probably, as you are Norwegian, you know her story). You added her to the "Hurtigruten in Bergen" category, and if we want to follow the second approach, this is fine. However, then we would also have to categorize e.g. appearances of National Geographic Explorer (ship, 1982) (as this is the former Hurtigruten ship Midnatsol / Lyngen), or of Sjøkurs (ship, 1956), the former Ragnvald Jarl in this structure, to be consistent. What do you think? Gestumblindi (talk) 19:20, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

My plan is to only list the ships which were in Hurtigruten service when the photo was taken. I have checked about it for the oldest ships, which may in some cases only have been in Hurtigruten service for a shorter while, but I didn't think of it when I added the categories to the photos of Nordstjernen. Thank you for making me aware of it. I'll probably take those photos out of the "Hurtigruten in Bergen" category, but add a hidden message to them, explaining why those few photos shouldn't be in that category. I should probably also add a short explanation at the top of all the "Hurtigruten by location" categories, explaining that they are only meant for photos from the time when the ships were in Hurtigruten service. Does that sound ok? Blue Elf (talk) 19:34, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes, thanks, sounds like a good approach :-) Gestumblindi (talk) 19:48, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

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 »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Just curious as to why you chose to nominate this particular photo of mine. If you want, I have a list of images to nominate... I expect to be done roughly never! -mattbuck (Talk) 19:44, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

It was mostly accidental, really. Some time ago I noticed the bot-created page User:OgreBot/Watercraft and thought it was a good place to look for new photos of boats and ships, including some that haven't been categorized properly. Your photos (here) of course had the categories they needed, but I liked the two photos of the boat with the tractor. So I decided to nominate the biggest and possibly best of the two.

You uploaded this, dating it 1948

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Vidar_Lindboe-Hansen_Arne_Hoel_1022.jpeg

Well spotted! It seems a little strange, though, because the Svenska skidspelen were in Östersund in 1948, like the source text at Digitalt Museum says. So I wonder, could the photo actually be from Svenska skidspelen in Sundsvall in 1947, or did they get the year wrong on the sign in 1948? Blue Elf (talk) 14:59, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

church categoriesEdit

Did you forget about User talk:FDMS4/archive/2015/II#Torvastad kirke / church? Again, do not change such category names to non-English variants, this is clearly against to-be-followed policy.    FDMS  4    23:52, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Please show me exactly where in the language policy it is stated that church names should be in English. I have now checked what seems to be the actual policy (practice) for church names in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Russia, Hungary, Poland. Most church category names seem to be in English in Finland, Russia, Hungary, Poland. Church names of Spain seem to vary, some are in English, some in Spanish. For Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Germany, Italy, France, most church names seem to be in these countries' local languages. I have only looked into it quickly now, so I can't give any proper statistics about it, but this is how it looks to me.
The standard practice for naming of categories for things like roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings in Norway is also to keep them in Norwegian. Of course, always category names like "Bridges in XXX" or "Sports venues in YYY", but the actual name, in Norwegian, for the category for each object.
If the category naming policy for things in Norway needs to be changed, then it also needs to be changed for categories of other countries where the same naming practice is used. I am of course not against standardization, and different languages are among those things that can make it difficult to find what we are looking for on Wikimedia Commons. Maybe it would be wise to change the actual category naming language standard so that English is used absolutely everywhere. But that would be quite a big change, and it should be brought up for principal discussion, rather than trying to force a change for a relatively limited number of categories and keep many other categories of the same kind unchanged. Blue Elf (talk) 23:53, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your detailed response! We have to assume that the two relevant policies, COM:LP and COM:CAT, were created and adapted as a result of community-wide consensus. Both of them apply globally. However, some users did not follow them (or created categories before these policies were written), and later other users (like you) considered the scheme the wrong names followed to be the norm. Often, there were not even a handful of users who have consciously decided to use non-English names. The only way to leave this vicious cycle is to show users that non-English category names are not the norm, by having at least some English object category names. I have manually renamed (and updated sortkeys and Commonscat links from other projects) "selected" categories of Austrian train stations for ~1,5 years now, and despite still being far from having given all categories English names, I don't remember anyone having voiced substantial objections so far. (On a side note, unlike German or Austrian churches, the English and local category names of Norwegian churches fortunately both start with the name of the respective church.)    FDMS  4    03:32, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

FortepanEdit

Hi, can you give me some help how to upload pictures from fortepan.hu easily? I mean is there some tool as for Flickr? Thanks for any advice. --RomanM82 (talk) 20:38, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Unfortunately I don't know of a tool for it. When I upload pictures from Fortepan to Commons, I copy the file description from a similar picture and then fill in the right description, year, categories and so on. It is easy to make mistakes that way, but I try to be careful and check after I have uploaded the picture, so I can correct the mistakes if I have made any.

Aha. Dette med status for kulturminner er litt uklart for meg, derfor har jeg ikke gjort noe spesielt med de ulike "Cultural heritage"-kategoriene. Kanskje det bare er fordi jeg ikke har satt meg spesielt inn i det. Jeg har ikke noen spesiell mening om det du tar opp, dessverre, men hvis du finner ut noe lurt, så har jeg slett ikke noe imot om du flytter eller justerer litt på kategoriene det gjelder.

Category:ØstfoldEdit

Hello Blue Elf, what is the aim of these [2] [3] changes? --Hydro (talk) 20:17, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

There is no consensus that names beginning with Ø should be sorted under O. Blue Elf (talk) 20:24, 19 June 2016 (UTC)
My first reply to you was both too sharp and too short. Sorry for that. Also sorry for taking this long to reply properly.
After this issue came up, I tried to look for a guideline about sorting and alphabetization, but I couldn't find anything. The best I could find was this help page, where it says: "The sort key system should be obvious, otherwise the order seems random and items are hard to find." But what is obvious, then, isn't necessarily... well, obvious.
I suppose a lot boils down to what language we speak and are used to. The main language on Commons is English, which is natural and makes sense. But that doesn't mean that all such preferences need to follow those of (most of) the people with English as their first language. In practice, it doesn't.
I see that you have set this kind of defaultsort on several categories starting with the letters Ø, Ö and Å. I'll avoid the issue from now on (I know better than to get involved in edit wars), but I'll still argue that there is no consensus for this, and that it makes the sorting unpredictable and confusing. In general, I think we should be careful not to overdo defaultsort or sort keys, except in obvious cases like sorting categories for people on last names and so on.

Flere norske skisportsutøvereEdit

Hei Blue Elf. Ser at Bruker:Materialscientist (listfiles) har lastet opp flere bilder fra digitalt museum av flere skisportsutøvere både norske og utenlandske. Er dette noe du vil ta deg av for innlegging av bilde og kategori på wikidata slik at bilde dukker opp i en wikidata-henterbilde infoboks på NO:WP. Jeg har fikset noen skøyteløpere som han lastet opp. I tillegg lastet han også opp en del boksere og brytere også fra digitalt museum ? Med vennlig hilsen Migrant (talk) 15:22, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Beklager at jeg ikke har svart deg før. Det kan hende at jeg pusler litt på Wikidata senere, men akkurat nå konsentrerer jeg meg mest om Commons. Blue Elf (talk) 10:14, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

IMO-nummerEdit

Hei, jeg ser du har lagt inn IMO-nummer på Category:Roald Amundsen (ship, 1904). Hvor har du funnet dette nummeret? IMO-nummer ble innført på 1960-tallet, lenge etter at «Roald Amundsen» ble hugget. Jeg vet at Miramar Ship Index har operert med fiktive IMO-numre, muligens for å koble sammen ulike navn på et skip. - 4ing (talk) 10:04, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Hei. Jeg fant nummeret i Skipshistorie, der det står under "Off.no". Jeg stusset også på det, for jeg er jo klar over at IMO-numrene ble innført senere. Ta det gjerne ut igjen, så skal jeg være mer kritisk til numrene som er oppgitt på det nettstedet heretter. Blue Elf (talk) 10:12, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
Takk, jeg fant det også der etter å ha lett litt rundt. Vanskelig å vite hva de mener med "Off.no", men jeg ser for nyere fartøy at det spesifieres "IMO no". Da fjerner jeg nummeret. Commons håndterer uansett skifte av fartøynavn ved å kategorisere eldre navn under nyeste navn i de tilfelle IMO-nummer ikke eksisterer. - 4ing (talk) 10:33, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Another item on IMO numbers, for your information: I categorise ships with IMO numbers always by name as Category:Ships built in a certain country and by IMO number as Ships built at a certain shipyard. It has the advantage that in the IMO category for a shipyard only 1 built ship is mentioned, by that IMO number with different names. That is why I moved ships you already categorised by shipyard. It has another advantage, but less important: Categories by shipname direct always to the countries where the ships have been built, even when the yard not is given. --Stunteltje (talk) 08:27, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
I see your point. It makes sense to connect the categories for ships by shipyard or ships built in X country to the IMO number, which is unique for each ship, and not to the ship names. The reason why I hadn't done it like that, is that I think the IMO numbers in the categories look quite "anonymous" - a name says more than just a number. I've had to think through this again today and get used to the idea, but I'll start doing it the way you prefer it from now on. Blue Elf (talk) 16:45, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
By the way, I am considering categorizing ships by their home port (port of registration). There hasn't been a lot of that so far, only for a few countries. I have no better reason for it, I suppose, than that it can be an interesting way of grouping the ships, when that information is available. Do you think that sounds okay, or would it be rather pointless? Blue Elf (talk) 16:56, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Very good to add the home port categories. I did it for some Category:Ships registered in Rotterdam. It takes a lot of extra work for many ships to find the place of registration and the maintenance, that's all. I'll support it by adding more ship categories that way myself. --Stunteltje (talk) 06:06, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

categories for ships by home portEdit

Hi, Blue Elf. When you place the metacat template for a category for ships by home port (for example, Category:Ships of Italy by home port), please use "home port" for the sort criterion instead of just "port". The documentation for Template:MetaCat explains this more. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:18, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Understood. I had just copied the metacat template that 4ing had put in one of the other categories, I hadn't thought of that. I'll remember the "home port" in there from now on. Blue Elf (talk) 08:52, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Earlier I checked all the ones that existed at that time and changed the ones that needed it. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:41, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Category:Rheinland (ship, 1964)Edit

Please have a check at the bow of the ship for her name. Then you will understand why I chose to categorise her with M/S. I alway use the name that has been painted on the ship. --Stunteltje (talk) 20:42, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Fair enough. I saw that, but I also saw that the M/S part was not included at the stern of the ship. But you can change the category name back, of course. Blue Elf (talk) 20:50, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Did not realise that. We'll keep the category as it is now. Thanks. --Stunteltje (talk) 21:02, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
No problem. Both you and I could be right here. And I could have kept my fingers off it anyway. Blue Elf (talk) 21:05, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

IMO 8871297 (international)Edit

Hi, Blue Elf. Please use for ships category name maritime English letters only! No multi-culti please, thanks,--PjotrMahh1 (talk) 13:37, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Well, "multi-culti" is what Wikimedia Commons is about, and we should use the correct spelling of names. Blue Elf (talk) 13:52, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
The category name follows the official policy described on Commons:Categories: Particular individual object (a specific person, building, monument, artwork, organization, event etc.) uses a singular form usually (but not always). Proper nouns which do not have an established English variant are not translated ad hoc but use the original form – Latin alphabets are used in original form including diacritics and derived letters, non-Latin alphabets are transcribed to the English Latin script. In this specific case, the ship name includes a diacritic letter, but it is written in the Latin alphabet. See also User_talk:4ing#SKANDI_ACU. - 4ing (talk) 14:13, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
For a couple of names of Japanese ship names I used an ō, which I am not absolutely certain that English transcription of Japanese uses. I'll avoid that if it turns out that I made a mistake there. And my knowledge of Latvian spelling is next to nothing. Some such letters in place names can be avoided because different name forms are used in English, like Munich for München or Copenhagen for København. I do use the English forms when I am aware of them and they seem to be used elsewhere on Commons. But avoiding letters like æ, ø, å, ä, ö completely isn't possible. For instance, the Norwegian town Tønsberg is called just that, not Tonsberg or Toensberg - and so on. Blue Elf (talk) 14:18, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
  • You don't understand me. Category:Liepāja (city) or Category:Krišjāņa Barona iela (Riga) is o.k. if you want. But I told you: Please use for ships category name maritime English letters only! Like here LIEPAJA and in international data base, this is an official name for international shipping, do not use the originally はやしお型潜水艦 (ship, 20xx) or Åǔŕųŵø (ship, 20xx), please avoid det (that), regards,--PjotrMahh1 (talk) 16:38, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
I could be wrong (that is always possible, of course), but I believe the official name is painted on the ship, and not necessarily to be found in one of many databases that may or may not be absolutely correct. Also, take a look at the picture on the page you linked to. Blue Elf (talk) 17:05, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
    • Well, all right. The “File:Liepaja Riga Sign Riga 8 July 2016.jpg” is my file (own work), with description en : Sign ‘ Liepāja Riga’, Riga 8 July 2016, but in the file name and in the category name I avoid Non-English letters. By national registers the names of ships are in the languages of these countries and below the Russian name the name in English like here for example, Category name AKADEMIK SHOKALSKIY. In Poland or in the Baltic provinces of Russia, what was the name of this country? are the same rules. Are you from Poland? Ship Solidarność by Polish register changed to Solidarnosc in Vanuatu Category:Solidarnosc_(ship,_1991). Please do not change the category name!--PjotrMahh1 (talk) 17:49, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
      • Russian Shipping, direct access from Wikimedia denied!--PjotrMahh1 (talk) 17:56, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
I agree a little with you. As well as the name painted on the ship, the official spelling is probably the one used in the particular register that the ship is in. I don't know what the Latvian ship register says about Liepāja. But if I may take a different example, again from my own country Norway: The ship Bjørnvåg has that spelling in the Norwegian ship register, which is the official register that that particular vessel is in. MarineTraffic, Shipspotting and similar websites are useful places to find data for ships, but they are not official registers. In most cases I'll believe that the spelling that is actually on the ship is the official one, unless a better, authoritative source can be found. Blue Elf (talk) 18:17, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
        • LIEPĀJA is the official name of this ship and her English Transliteration is LIEPAJA for all Maritime services all over the world, for pilot stations and WTAs, port authorities, for equasis (the best website for ship names worldwide) and all international regulations, court etc. We had in Norway national register and NIS register. In DNV (Det Norske Veritas) I had seen the name with Ö - HÖEGH OSAKA or an other ship name but we make the "Ordnung" in DNV-GL HOEGH OSAKA now. We can allow ö, å, ø in official names for Norwegian small ferries for national service but it would be very bad for us, for one billion Wikimedia users from Non-Norge. LIEPĀJA is good for Russia but bad for Brits and international use, regards--PjotrMahh1 (talk) 19:08, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
I am uncertain of the status of DNV GL, even though I see the Wikipedia articles about it. But at least for the example of Hoegh Osaka, it doesn't matter, because the spelling of that ship is Hoegh, without the diacritics. I may think it's silly, but that's the name, as can be seen here or here. On the other hand, consider Höegh Trapper, which can be found in DNV GL as... Höegh Trapper, with the diacritics. Blue Elf (talk) 19:56, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Category:Ships registered in WuppertalEdit

Category:Ships registered in Wuppertal? No, very unlikely. Wuppertal is not on a waterway. What is the source of the registration? --Atamari (talk) 15:43, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

The source is this photo. But I admit that I don't know the area. Corrections are welcome, of course.   Blue Elf (talk) 16:01, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
Wuppertal has no waterways, no harbor, no pier, no dock. This picture shows Frankfurt (am Main). --Atamari (talk) 16:08, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
I was refering to the home port written on the aft of the barge, which does say Wuppertal. But that could still be wrong, of course. Blue Elf (talk) 16:12, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
Home port Wuppertal? Fake News! Why is Magic (Town) not the home port? --Atamari (talk) 16:22, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Færgelejet has 10 October 1981 as date of build. But it happens that they get it wrong. Maybe I was too quick with changing the year on this one. Blue Elf (talk) 21:39, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Pour vos dernières modifcations vers "ship" je ne suis pas d'accord.Edit

Et si vous n'avez pas compris le français, c'est non, cette catégorie était parfaite. --H2O(talk) 19:16, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

The general rule is that category names should be in English, although I admit that that isn't as simple as it may seem. I have been on the other side of discussions about that about some other kinds of categories. Also, generally, the type of watercraft is identified by category, except for submarines and tugboats. (See Category:Ships.) So a barque should be identified as a ship in the category name. Blue Elf (talk) 19:34, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
Je ne vous comprend pas, merci de me parler en français. --H2O(talk) 19:41, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
Pardon. Je ne parle pas français, mais je traduirai aussi bien que possible avec Google Translate. La règle générale est que les noms de catégorie devraient être en anglais, bien que j'admette que ce n'est pas aussi simple que cela puisse paraître. J'ai été de l'autre côté des discussions à ce sujet au sujet d'autres types de catégories. En outre, généralement, le type de motomarine est identifié par catégorie, sauf pour les sous-marins et les remorqueurs. (Voir Category:Ships.) Ainsi, une barque devrait être identifiée comme navire dans le nom de la catégorie. Blue Elf (talk) 19:46, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
"Barque" étant un terme propre à ce ce type de navire du Léman, la catégorie "ship" doit se faire à la catégorie supérieure. --H2O(talk) 19:57, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
Assez juste, je ne changerai pas les noms de catégories similaires. Vous pouvez annuler le changement que j'ai fait. Blue Elf (talk) 20:05, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Category:Ships registered in Ballard, WashingtonEdit

 
Ok, so I didn't make [[Category:Ships registered in Radiator Springs]].  

Category:Ships registered in Ballard, Washington seems to me like a dubious category. Ballard hasn't had a legal existence as a formal entity since it was annexed by Seattle in 1907. There's a strong sense of neighborhood pride & all that, and someone might choose to write "Ballard" on their boat rather than "Seattle," but I don't see any way a present-day craft could be in any serious sense registered in a place that doesn't even have clear boundaries or a legal existence. - Jmabel ! talk 00:16, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

That's definitely a valid point. Hm... I also see now that we/I should have startet off with "Watercraft registered in..." instead of "Ships...", because it seems kind of silly to have small boats in ship categories. Blue Elf (talk) 08:36, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
I leave you to sort this out, but I strongly suggest that category be removed, and that any ships that may say "Ballard" as place of registration on their stern be listed as registered in Seattle. - Jmabel ! talk 14:50, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Category:Baltika (ship, 2015)Edit

Hello, I noticed that you moved this page from Category:Baltika (ship, 2014). There are two issues with this edit. First of all, category pages should never be moved with the "move" button like regular pages. If you need a new category, please start a new page from scratch and recategorise the images. Second, your source seems to be wrong because this report claims that Baltika entered service in December 2014. So 2014 is the year of build. I am therefore inclined to restore the 2014 category. De728631 (talk) 14:12, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

You are probably right about the date (year). My source says Date of completion: 2.15, but it could be wrong. Why is it that categories shouldn't be moved with the "move" button? Is it because when it's done that way, the history will follow the new category instead of the old one? I hadn't thought it was a problem, but I'll do as you say from now on. Thank you for correcting me. Blue Elf (talk) 18:46, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Well, these moving instructions are not a Commons guideline. In fact, the official recommendation is to use the "move" tab. The main problem with moving category pages, however, is that most people forget to sort the files into the new page and just walk away after moving the category page. Therefore I always recommend using the method above. In case of controversial names like this, it also makes reverting easier. You did recategorize the images though, so that's not much of an issue and I won't mind you going on like this. As to the year of build, I'm going to put the files back into "2014". De728631 (talk) 14:16, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay, I understand now. I definitely see your pont there, it's easy to forget to sort the files into the new page. I always try to be careful about that, but if I do forget, don't hesitate to remind me to do it. And it's fine that you put the files back in the "2014" category, it does seem to be the correct one. Blue Elf (talk) 16:04, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Category:Hermina (ship, 2008)Edit

The ship has been built at Santierul Naval Orsova SA, Orsova, Romania. The Dutch yard De Waal, Werkendam. did not more than the finishing touch. --Stunteltje (talk) 19:54, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

Ah, okay. Point taken.   Blue Elf (talk) 10:09, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Category:Ships built in ...Edit

Hi Blue Elf, please check, wether a ship category, is already a subcat of a "Category:Ships built in ..." before adding it ([6], [7], [8], [9] etc.). Many of those categories are overloaded as it is already and shouldn't be additionally filled through overcats. Cheers, --MB-one (talk) 13:37, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

I was actually waiting for that. There have been discussions about having the "Ships built in..." categories as subcategories of the ships' IMO number, and I certainly see the point in that, because the IMO number is a unique identifier for the ships. But I also think that would make it more difficult to get a quick overview of the ships' most important data, because one would have to check the IMO number category as well as the category for the ship's name. (Does that make sense?) As far as I know, the discussions haven't lead to a consensus on changing the practice. Blue Elf (talk) 13:51, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
The question whether the building location should be at the IMO No or ship name level seems to be a different issue to me. Because regardless of that, the ship name category, shouldn't be categorized in the build country category, if it is already in a more specific category (e.g. by state or shipyard). --MB-one (talk) 14:08, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
Hm, maybe I misunderstood you. I try to avoid overcategorization. But I have also noticed that some ship name categories have both "Ships built in XX country" and "Ships built in XX ship yard". Blue Elf (talk) 14:18, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
I categorise the IMO number category in Category:Ships built at a certain shipyard and the ship name category in Category:Ships built in a certain country. --Stunteltje (talk) 19:14, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
@Stunteltje: Sorry for interposing but... what is the logic behind that? - Jmabel ! talk 00:44, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
The logic is that the IMO number identifies the vessel by every name, flag and so on. So the IMO category contains the ship by every name the ship gets in her lifetime. Usually changing flag means changing name. E.G. Category:IMO 5282627. The yard built only the ship with her first name. Categorising by name in the Category:Ships built at gives a not correct idea about the number of ships built there. --Stunteltje (talk) 11:22, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
That's absurd. So the ship, under it's second name, was still built in a certain country, but no longer in a certain yard? - Jmabel ! talk 17:28, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Please read more carefully. I repeat: "Categorising by name in the Category:Ships built at gives a not correct idea about the number of ships built there." One has to use the IMO number for that purpose. By name isn't the yard mentioned, only the country. --Stunteltje (talk) 18:04, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Category:Fishing ships of IcelandEdit

Hi Blue Elf, I'm wondering why you changed the positions of all the hull numbers in these category names. Last time I checked there was consensus to create fishing ship category names like "AB123 Neptunus (ship, 1998)" instead of "Neptunus AB123..." De728631 (talk) 20:20, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

I know it is common to have the registry number first, and I started out doing it that way for the fishing vessels from Iceland as well. But it seems to be (more or less?) standard practice in Iceland to have the registry number at the end. Like for instance for the ship Heimaey, with the registry number VE 1, see its entry at the Icelandic Directorate of Fisheries or the unofficial ship search at Icelandic newspaper Morgunblaðið. I don't really have a very strong opinion about it, though, and we could change it back. I have no plans to change this for fishing vessels from other countries.
Also, I am not absolutely certain whether there should be a space, a hyphen or nothing between the letters and the number, like VE 1, VE-1 or VE1. All of those seem to be used, but the space seems to be the most common, at least when the numbers are painted on the ships. Blue Elf (talk) 21:03, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Ah, now I see your motivation. In this light we might just keep your new categories. Concerning the pennant numbers, I seem to remember that there was some sort of consensus here to not use any separation characters like hyphens or spaces at all. Ideally though, we want to go with the numbers as they come in any official registration documents. So, if Fiskistofa uses "VE-1" that should be our designation too.

Category Ships BonnEdit

Hi! You've created the Commons Cat "Category:Ships named Bonn", but there's already existing that one: "Category:Ships named after Bonn". Greets from Bonn - --Sir James (talk) 06:45, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Ah yes, I hadn't noticed that. I have put the 'Ships named Bonn' into the category 'Ships named after Bonn' now. Blue Elf (talk) 13:11, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Glenorchy / ItaliaEdit

Can you explain what's going on here? Why is it desired to change the category to use a later name of the same ship? And why now have two categories for this ship? - Jmabel ! talk

Ah yes. The photo was categorized under the original ship name Glenorchy, but in the file name and summary it is Italia, so I created a category for that name and moved the photo to it. However, according to the information here, the name of the ship would actually have been Fratelli Beverino in 1904... Blue Elf (talk) 09:23, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Title came from University of Washington Libraries, and we try to keep titles from institutions unless they are dead wrong, but I think if the category merited change at all it should be to the name at the time of the photo. FWIW, I went with Glenorchy because it is a much less common name for a ship, and much more likely to be useful for anyone searching for further info. - Jmabel ! talk 17:52, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
I could have left it as it was, fair enough. But as far as I know, we try to keep ship photos in categories of the name they have at the time, rather than just one category for each ship, regardless of the name they had at the time. (Obviously for newer ships that have IMO numbers and similar, but also for older ships.) Blue Elf (talk) 17:57, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Category:Totara (ship, 1924)Edit

You have added back category:Ships of Australia. Why?

This is not a trick question, I need you to follow my explanation why this is not a "ship of Australia" (and I doubt it is even in Australia). When your categorisation is explained then we can talk more. You may know more than I do. Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 05:06, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

There was a risk that that might be wrong, and I see now that it probably is. The thing is, lots of photos that were uploaded from the State Library of Queensland were put in the "Ships of Australia" category when they were uploaded to Commons, without any checking if they actually were from Australia. I am looking through many of the photos in that category now, and I have fixed the error for some of them, but for some, I have just moved the "Ships of Australia" category from the photo to the ship category without actually checking it. So sometimes the error persists, unfortunately. It seems that this happened with Totara. According to Miramar Ship Index (if it's the same ship, but it probably is), Totara was registered in New Zealand and for a short time in the UK. I'll fix the error. Miramar has the year of completition as 1925 - I guess 1924 could be the year it was launched. Would it be ok to change the building year to 1925? Blue Elf (talk) 08:33, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
There's a very good chance that both Kiwi ships, owned by the ANCHOR SHIPPING & FOUNDRY CO. LTD. are in Wellington in this photo. The clincher would be the whereabouts of the SS Cape Verde. See here https://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/s-s-cape-verde-2. Also the VW van is post 1949. Actually if you look at this photo, just behind the funnel of the Titoki see the side of the shed roof there are two sidewall windows, just the same as the shed in this photo. https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=320250&nojs=1 Broichmore (talk) 19:58, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
I have updated the categories now, but kept the building year at 1924. Blue Elf (talk) 20:26, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

single-entry sub-categoriesEdit

do not really serve any useful function and do obfuscate the parent category. Please avoid unless you have high confidence more images will appear chortly. Dankarl (talk) 01:15, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

In principle I agree with that. But there are some exceptions. I have made new sub-categories with just one entry for things like individual ships, ships by home port, ski jumping hills by country... But when I diffuse bigger categories, I usually avoid creating a sub-category unless I have at least 5 entries to put in it. Blue Elf (talk) 07:29, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Sunrise (ship, 2016)Edit

Hi, Talk me through me it, why is this a ship and not a yacht? I specifically changed ship to yacht, because this is one of those names that defies logical search patterns, and from memory I actually populated the cat with several stray images that had previously eluded others. That's why I changed it. Broichmore (talk) 05:11, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Maybe it was nitpicking from me. But in Category:Ships it is explained: 'Submarines use "<name> (submarine, <year>)" and tugs/towboats use "<name> (tugboat, <year>)". All other types are identified by category:Ships by type.' So according to that, all other watercraft should be named as ships. Blue Elf (talk) 10:22, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Mmmm Yes, well a yacht is closer to a boat than a ship isn't it. I'm constantly dismayed at how rules can be set in stone here, by people who know Jack about ships, or who have a prejudice that they should conform to the same classification system as a barge. Broichmore (talk) 09:46, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
I see your point to some degree. I suppose it was set that way just to make it easy to show categories of watercraft, and without making much point in the category names of exactly what kind of watercraft, but leave that for the "Ships by type" categories. But then, they could have dropped the 'tugboat' and 'submarine' parts, too... Blue Elf (talk) 09:52, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
I would promote the idea of moving yachts away from ships, from a catting viewpoint its a very messy area, unless they are involved in the Americas race, they are poorly documented and almost always virtually unrecognisable to a name or even an owner. Added to which they are very often named cheaply, there must be many thousands of Sunrises. The exception being, steam yachts which are are really ships despite their name.

Hurtigruten minutt for minuttEdit

I copied all the images from the NRKbeta's Hurtigruten minutt for minutt album to the Commons. They are all in the Hurtigruten minutt for minutt category. Can you please add additional categories to these images (if applicable)? Many thanks -- Meisam (talk) 09:24, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

BTW, I'm also trying to transcode and upload their free version of the Hurtigruten minutt for minutt to the Commons. The description pages with the missing files are there as the place-holder. -- Meisam (talk) 09:26, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
I'll take a look at it.   Blue Elf (talk) 15:07, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Ships of Liberia vs Ships registered in MonroviaEdit

I've been reverting a couple of your changes, adding "Ships of Liberia" (and the like) to categories which are already a member of "Ships registered in Liberia", per COM:OVERCAT. Typically, the "registered in" categories are already subcats of the "ships of <country>", so it's redundant category to add. In particular, I think it's more appropriate for flags of convenience, as there is nothing besides paperwork linking the ship to the country -- there may be more of a case when a ship is built in a country and run by a company there, and spends a lot of its life there, even though it may still technically be an overcategorization. But for many international ships the "registered in" is the more accurate category, for me, and we don't need the other. Do you disagree? Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:55, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

File:Gruppe-G Brühl 2018.JPGEdit

Hallo, weshalb änderten Sie an meinem in Brühl aufgenommenen Photo? Gibt es dafür einen Grund? Oder war es nur Vandalismus? --GFHund (talk) 03:49, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi. I removed the category for Carmen Voicu, because she isn't in the photo. (At least I don't think I can see her in that one?) Blue Elf (talk) 17:05, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
Das Foto zeigt ihren Sohn! Weshalb soll die Familie getrennt werden? --GFHund (talk) 18:14, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
I think it would be natural to just have her in that category. But it isn't important. Just put it back. I certainly didn't intend it as vandalism. Blue Elf (talk) 18:28, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Tugboats of the United KingdomEdit

Hi Blue Elf

You have removed the Category:Tugboats of the United Kingdom from a number of my photographs of tugboats of the United Kingdom. Could you explain why you thought this was necessary? Murgatroyd49 (talk) 09:14, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi. The categories for those tugboats were already categorized as Tugboats of the United Kingdom, and they were the only such boats on those photographs, so it wasn't necessary to have the photographs as well in that category. Blue Elf (talk) 10:12, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
I see, thanks for the reponse. Murgatroyd49 (talk) 21:37, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
