Wieder Ärger um US-TerminologieEdit

Guten Morgen. Es gibt wieder Ärger darum, dass zwei Amis mit aller Gewalt den bei ICAO in diesem Kontext nicht benutzten Ausdruck "model" statt "type" durchdrücken wollen: Diskussion Aircraft by type name.

Hierzu hattest Du dies schon einmal geschrieben: "And "type" is the official ICAO designation for what may otherwise be called an aircraft model. Using "model" for general aircraft categories is problematic though, because it should only be used for categories of scale models. Hence the "by type" wording of the subcategories that was rightfully introduced by Uli Elch. De728631 (talk) 19:47, 5 April 2018 (UTC)".

Ich hatte ergänzt: See also Category:Models of aircraft sowie jetzt: "Please type in aircraft model in the English Wikipedia - and see what happens."
Nun ist Joshbaumgartner auch noch dazu übergegangen, seine Argumentation mit glatten Lügen stützen zu wollen: Es ware ich gewesen, der Kategorien "to his liking" umbenannt hätte - während gerade er selbst genau das getan hatte, was ich in der Disk anhand etlicher Beispiele belegt habe.
Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn Du die Möglichkeit fändest, Dich zu diesem Thema einzubringen. Viele Grüße --Uli Elch (talk) 10:26, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Olympic Tent City - Day 1 - Housing activists.jpgEdit

While I'm inclined to close this as a keep per your rationale what do we do with the file information page? It can't stay in Category:Unsourced Flickr images checked by trusted user permanently but it also can't "officially" be license reviewed. I know we have flickr related tags when a license is changed but I don't see any if the source is gone. I'm also not really a fan of just removing the {{Flickr no source}} without something to put in it's place since that will just open the possibility for a repeat of this. Ideas? --Majora (talk) 17:11, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

@Majora: I think you can easily remove the {{Flickr no source}} tag and add a {{kept}} at the talk page instead. This will link to the deletion discussion where points were made for keeping this image. De728631 (talk) 17:13, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
Looks like Jcb was faster.   De728631 (talk) 01:23, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

This is howEdit

Commons:Undeletion requests/Archive/2018-10#File:Walt Whitman - George Collins Cox.jpg

"how did it even get into this mass DR in the first place?!"

This is how. Several PD images were mentioned in the DR. The admin didn't do so much as lift a finger to repair any damage. Well I'm sure you remember, it was a big thread. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 08:51, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

While I don't remember the original DR thread, I'd say the damage was partially caused by you, too. Tossing 1.7k files from a broad search result into one DR will inevitably cause collateral damage. I don't agree with a lot of what Jcb is doing at Commons, but in this case I think he can't be blamed. The problem is that it would've taken ages to sift through all these uploads one by one and find any possible PD images. So dumping the whole lot into the waste bin was a practical solution, if not a pretty one. De728631 (talk) 19:09, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
All but 150 were categorized by the time the deletion hammer hit, including some categories for images that had to be deleted. I sank many hours of work into that. There was no reason to delete the whole DR. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 23:11, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Petre AntonescuEdit

Petre Antonescu died 1965. But here you have rejected me (double standard?). See also Category:Buildings by Petre Antonescu. --Turbojet (talk) 22:45, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Double standards? Where and why? I don't see why you would reference a thread from half a year ago. Even more so since Jameslwoodward explained the situation there pretty well. De728631 (talk) 01:42, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Both are about Romanian architects. If the image which was discussing was covered in Romanian legislation, not recognized by Jim, there is no justification for the images in the category Petre Antonescu. Yet they are preserved, and the one I have discussed not. This is the double standard of Commons administrators. --Turbojet (talk) 11:50, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Then why don't you go ahead and nominate these other images for deletion? At the English Wikipedia there is a very informative essay on what not to do in a deletion discussion: WP:OTHERSTUFF and WP:ALLORNOTHING come to my mind. Moreover, I fail to see why you are now coming up with this argument when the undeletion discussion took place more than half a year ago. Anyhow, I have now started Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Accademia di Romania (Rome). De728631 (talk) 14:39, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
I am a simple user, I have to respect the policies only on the pictures uploaded by me. You are an administrator, you have the duty to enforce policy compliance throughout the whole project. Now that you know the situation with Petre Antonescu, if you do not do everything with your hand, I will maintain the view that you and Jim are applying a double standard. --Turbojet (talk) 15:14, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Commons lives off its "simple users" as you call them, so yes, you can act here as well. We administrators have to deal with thousands of problematic images every day, and believe it or not, we do have a life outside of Commons. We're not here at a full-time job to fix up anything ar once that the community probably messed up. I only made comments in a case that was handled by another administrator and where several other editors contributed. So, honestly, your allegations of a double standard a few months after the case was decided are just lame. De728631 (talk) 15:23, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
That case was wrongly decided, but this is another discussion that I promised to resume, but the time has not come.
I understand that you, as an administrator, all you do is just comment on some discussions, not to work on the project. Okay, I'm done in this discussion, I understand what the Commons' administrators do. --Turbojet (talk) 16:53, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
