Unfortunate category names ("vagina" vs. "vulva")Edit

In the correct meanings of these two words, the vagina is rarely externally visible unless the lips are pulled apart. According to the way these words are usually used on Commons, most images in "Category:Human vaginas in art" should actually be in "Category:Human vulvas in art" (this certainly applies to File:Ishtar vase Louvre AO17000-detail.jpg‎ and other images on my watchlist). It's rather unfortunate that you just went ahead without paying proper attention to what these words really mean... AnonMoos (talk) 19:38, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

@AnonMoos: Thank you. I correct the name of the category. Best regards. --DenghiùComm (talk) 19:47, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

@AnonMoos: Post scriptum : I used the cat "Human vaginas in art" because it doesn't exist the cat "Vulvas in art". If you think that it's relevant, please create the new category and move the files in it. Thank you. --DenghiùComm (talk) 19:54, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Bad moveEdit

Hello! This move is totally inappropriate. Nobody has ever called him "Charles" - see the talk page there! His legal name is "Carl ..." --SergeWoodzing (talk) 14:16, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

@SergeWoodzing: So why all the other Swedish kings are called Charles? Theyr names were certainly Carl or Karl. I think it is important in the names of the categories to have a consistency in the given names. We cannot have three or four different ways of writing the same name. This is the reason of my rename. But I let a redirect. --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:43, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

We go by what they are known as. For Swedish kings, Charles VII (actually Charles I) to Charles XV: "Charles". Current king, legal name: Carl. We don't start using a name form that never has been used for a person anywhere else. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 23:19, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Categories by nameEdit

Hello, DenghiùComm. I noticed that you changed some "by name" categories from using the {{Catcat}} template to using the {{Metacat}} template. Many categories with "by name" in their names are not metacats. Many of the ones you changed are not metacats, so I have been changing them back.

The way to tell if one of these categories is a metacat is to look at the subcategories. If the subcategories are for multiple things with the same name, then it is a metacat. An example of this is Category:Hotels by name. One of the subcategories there is Category:Hotels named Majestic, which is for any and all hotels named "Majestic". An example of a "by name" category that is not a metacat is Category:Women of Italy by name, where each subcategory is for one individual woman.

The same thing is true for some other criteria, including by registration, by title, and some others.

I know this can be confusing, but I hope this helps explain it. Please be careful when working with these categories so that we don't tag categories as metacategories when they really aren't. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:15, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Auntof6: Thanks for your explanations. I knew that categories of categories are "catcat", while all other categories by something are "metacats". Is there in Commons a page where all this is explained and fixed? I never heard such distinctions nor rules. Thank you very much. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 14:25, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Auntof6: please can you answer me? I'm not convinced of what you say. Because if this were so, the 90% of the current metacats would not be metacats. Perhaps it needs a category discussion. Thank you. Best regards. --DenghiùComm (talk) 05:57, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Metacats are explained in two places that I know of. One is at Commons:Naming categories#Categories by CRITERION, where it says "These are special categories which are useful to group other related pages (not media files) according to a given criterion. They hold only other categories and should be marked with {{MetaCat}} template." The other place is the {{MetaCat}} template itself, which says "Use this tag for meta categories only, that should only contain other categories that are grouped by a specified criterion."
The key is the grouping by a criterion. If you look at Category:Buildings by country as an example, each individual subcategory is named "Buildings in <country>" -- each one contains information about buildings that share the same location, namely the indicated country.
If you try to apply that logic to "by name" categories (and a few other "by xxxx" categories such as serial number, registration ID, and maybe others I'm not thinking of right now), you run into a snag. That's because the expression "by name" is used two different ways in Commons categories.
  1. One way is the way it's used with the hotels category I mentioned above: each subcategory is for grouping any and all hotels that share the same name. Here, "by name" is a shortcut way of saying "grouped by name". With this, there is a many-to-one correspondence between hotels and name.
  2. The other way is the way it's commonly used in English speech: referring to something or someone by using their name instead of in some other way. For example, you can refer to Queen Elizabeth by name by calling her "Queen Elizabeth", or you can refer to in a different way by calling her "Queen of the United Kingdom", "Her Majesty", etc. With this, there is a one-to-one correspondence between "person" and "name".
It's only the categories the first group that group multiple things/people with a shared characteristic: those are metacategories, and the others are not. The prefix "meta" implies that there's something more to a metacategory than just having subcategories, and that "something more" is that the subcategories are groupings, not categories for individual things or people. One clue is to look at the things named in the category name. With "Buildings by country," it's easy to understand that one country would have multiple buildings. With "People by name," it's possible that one could apply to multiple people, but if the subcategories aren't grouped that way, then the parent category is not a metacat. The by-name categories I changed back aren't grouped that way, so they should be tagged with {{Catcat}}, not {{Metacat}}.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I wouldn't object to having a wider discussion about this because it comes up every so often and it would be nice to have something somewhere that spells this out. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:32, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Long shotEdit

Hi, I know this is a long shot, but perhaps you know if you came across this person in your categorisation of the Nadar photographs? It is marked "unknown person" on this photo, but it is likely he's a doctor (the image is from the Wellcome library collection), and there might just me more photos with an ID from the same session. I can't find anything (there are just too many), but if might just ring a bell with you. I hope you can solve this mystery :) Thanks, -- Deadstar (msg) 19:41, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I can not take care of this thing. I have only categorized the files. To identify the people on the photographs is not my work. Greetings --DenghiùComm (talk) 05:42, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Category:South TyrolEdit

Ciao, perchè hai annullato le modifiche sulla descrizione in italiano in Category:South Tyrol? I toponimi in lingua tedesca sono presenti nella apposita descrizione. --Afnecors (talk) 08:56, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

@Afnecors: Ciao. Il mio intervento è dovuto alle seguenti ragioni. 1) Perché in quei luoghi si parla tedesco, per cui la dizione esatta è Bozen e Südtyrol. La dizione / traduzione italiana è stata imposta dopo la prima guerra mondiale e soprattutto sotto il fascismo, ad una popolazione che parla invece il tedesco. 2) Oramai quelle zone fanno parte dell' Italia quindi Bolzano e Alto Adige hanno lo stesso diritto di esistere ed essere presenti nelle nostre categorie. 3) Poiché fra gli utenti attivi in Commons ci sono alcuni particolarmente agguerriti in questo senso che vogliono cancellare la dizione italiana, noi abbiamo avuto anni fa una guerra feroce per arrivare all'attuale equilibrio. Con il tuo intervento apparentemente minimo, insignificante, e banale si rischia invece di scatenare una nuova guerra logorante e sfibrante per tutti che non mi sembra proprio il caso. Tieni presente che per gli Altoatesini di lingua tedesca le dizioni in lingua italiana sono un nervo scoperto, non una questione da poco. Ti invito pertanto ad essere estremamente cauto in tutti i cambiamenti che vuoi fare nei nomi che riguardano l'Alto Adige. Grazie per la collaborazione. --DenghiùComm (talk) 14:41, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
@Afnecors:Se ti dovessero interessare i termini di quella sfibrante e tormentata discussione, la trovi qui. --DenghiùComm (talk) 19:25, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
La provincia autonoma di Bolzano è composta dal 4% di ladini, 26% di italofoni, 70% di germanofoni. Non è affatto vero che "la dizione esatta è Bozen e Südtyrol". O meglio non vi sono endonimi "giusti" o "sbagliati". Lo stesso territorio viene chiamato allo stesso tempo Alto Adige in italiano e Südtirol in tedesco. Quindi perchè nella descrizioni in italiano devono essere messi gli endonimi tedeschi, quando esistono i termini italiani utilizzati da più di un quarto della popolazione della provincia di Bolzano e da tutti gli italofoni? Semplicemente nel template de va la descrizione in tedesco, nel template it la descrizione in italiano: solo buon senso. Inserire termini tedeschi nella descrizione italiana (e pure viceversa) potrebbe invece dar vita ad una "guerra logorante e sfibrante". P.S. Alto Adige era già stato utilizzato da Napoleone (Dipartimento dell'Alto Adige). --Afnecors (talk) 13:56, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
Credo di aver spiegato molto chiaramente i termini della questione. Ti invito nuovamente a non provocare una nuova guerra su Commons. "Parigi val bene una messa", se mi capisci... Se una parolina in meno scatena una editwar... lascia perdere. Per il bene di tutti. Punto. DenghiùComm ( talk) 19:35, 2 November 2019 (UTC)]]

Important message for file moversEdit

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:35, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Pilone vs colonna....Edit

Ciao, sono rimasto un bel po' perplesso nello scoprire che la Category:Pillars in heraldry è stata creata da dall'Orto; ora non sono certo, ma mi sembra ben strano, che in araldica si identifichi un pilone (pillar) e non una colonna (column), che tra l'altro in sono trattati nella stessa voce. Sempre nella mia ignoranza un pilone è un semplice elemento strutturale tecnico, mentre una colonna è un elemento architettonico, ovvero il primo è di ambito tecnico, e il secondo di ambito artistico. Per quel poco che ricordo di impianti e costruzioni una colonna è anche un pilone, un pilone non sempre lo è (vedi un pilone di un ponte autostradale, semplice palo in cemento armato centrifugato. Morale io vedrei meglio la categoria rimontata in Columns in heraldry, @Marcok: tu che sei del ramo che ne pensi?--Threecharlie (talk) 09:27, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

@Threecharlie: Dal punto di vista strutturale sono la stessa cosa. Bisognerebbe a mio avviso capire poi se la scelta del termine sia dovuta alla terminologia araldica anglosassone (che ignoro). Quindi sarei prudente nel cambiare nome alla categoria. --Marcok (talk) 17:45, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Doors vs PortalsEdit

Ciao, dato che è patrimonio della città che ben conosci ti chiedo: coesistono due categorie similari, Category:Doors in Naples e Category:Portals in Naples e mi sa che nella prima ci sono immagini e sottocategorie che dovrebbero stare nella seconda perché, IMO, un portale è soprattutto l'elemento architettonico che "circonda" e valorizza un accesso, che sia una porta di ingresso per persone o che lo sia per mezzi come carri e carrozze in antichità, di un edificio, mentre "door" è solo la porta, che può anche avere connotazioni storico-artistiche di pregio ma che non è un portale, insomma come se si mettessero nella categoria dei portali tutte le facciate di palazzi ville e chiese perché si vede un portale (e non si vedono anche le finestre allora? e i tetti?). Morale, quando vuoi e puoi passa a dare un'occhiata, grazie ;-) --Threecharlie (talk) 10:23, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

Dato che si tratta della tua zona...Edit

Ciao, prima di spostare chiedo, o magari sposti tu: a parte che Category:Complesso di Santa Maria di Materdei potrebbe forse essere meglio indicato come nome della categoria (è un convento? è un monastero? a chi è dedicato?) IMO sarebbe da cambiare la categorizzazione da church a buildings e semmai fare un lavoro di fino creando una sottocategoria solo per la chiesa, come ho fatto ad esempio con Category:Abbey of Sant'Angelo in Formis (Capua) (se è abbazia non è chiesa, vedi la crono). Anzi sono ancora più "Nazigrammar", quando vedo che ci sono categorie nominate come abbazia, monastero, convento, sposto sempre a buildings, anche quando è rimasta la sola chiesa abbaziale, perché sia mai che qualcuno esumi un'immagine storica dove si vedeva tutto il complesso, sia questo disegno, mappa, pittura o altro, e anche un po' per presunzione di "educare" a non fare di ogni erba un fascio. Concludendo, fai te, o dimmi a cosa sarebbe meglio spostassi. PS: sto trasferendo con fatica, nel senso che alle volte devo andare a caccia di dove sia la chiesa raffigurata, immagini orfane da locale a Commons, tra le quali File:Basilica di San Lorenzo Maggiore. (3713).JPG... non è che riesci a risalire il soggetto, l'autore, la data di realizzazione e la tecnica pittorica? :-) --Threecharlie (talk) 09:17, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Materdei è una zona di Napoli che conosco poco e niente, né ci vado mai. debbo prima informarmi. Ti faccio sapere. Un abbraccio,

Category revertsEdit

Hi, you recently reverted a bunch of my category edits. Two things: first the Collegio degli Augustales at Herculaneum is definitely not a temple; it has a shrine in it, but so did every elite house in the Roman world. "House" admittedly is a little off for it, too, but it's much better than temple. Second an item shouldn't belong to a category and then a sub-category of that same category. So if "Lake Nemi in Art" is a category and "Nemi in art" is a subcategory, we should choose one, not both, for any given item. Thoughts? - Eponymous-Archon (talk) 11:07, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

@Eponymous-Archon: In the large exhibition on Herculaneum organized a few years ago at the Archaeological Museum of Naples, to which distinguished scholars have participated, the exact place of the discovery of the equestrian statues of M. Nonius Balbus remains doubtful. Therefore giving them the categories of both, the Basilica and the Forum of Herculaneum, is correct. As for the paintings of Lake Nemi if the village of Nemi is also shown, it is correct to assign both categories. A village is not a lake and a lake is not a village. They are two different subjects. What is debatable is that the village of Nemi is a subcat of Lake Nemi or that Lake Nemi is a subcat of the village of Nemi. Maybe we can delete both subcats and solve everything with "cat see also" at the top of the pages. Thank you. --DenghiùComm (talk) 07:08, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Ciao Tommaso, che piacere trovarti!!
Si, sono definitivamente a Milano - abbiamo anche venduto casa a Roma e giusto domani rogitiamo qui. Dove ero felice di essere approdata fino all'epidemia e ai relativi domiciliari - dal 7 marzo sono uscita da casa 4 volte x andare all'Esselunga (300mt da qui).. Non dico nemmeno + che passerà, xché ho capito che finita questa prima emergenza qui sarà tutto in salita e davvero niente sarà come prima e difficilmente sarà meglio. Vabbè, vedremo. Ma tu dove sei bloccato? a Napoli? Mi piacerebbe tanto che passassi da Milano! Quanto alla veduta aerea sono sicurissima che NON è Roma. E non riesco nemmeno a immaginare dove stia quel cupolone col campanile allampanato vicino, ma cmque tutti quei tetti a spioventi con tanti comignoli mi danno un'idea di città al nord: non c'è un solo tetto a terrazza, nè una facciata in travertino!.

from, of, in?Edit

Ciao Denghiù. Non ho parlato italiano da molti anni, quindi parlerò inglese. Abbi pazienza con me, prego! I got your comment on Andy's talk page when I was asking about organizing the pottery category tree. Could you walk me through the fastest way to rename categories? In the arts, there are subcategories by country. Should these be:

Pottery from Italy Pottery in Italy or Pottery of Italy?

Which is the commonly used form?

Similarly: Earthenware from Italy Earthenware in Italy Earthenware of Italy or Italian Earthenware

I have no preference, except to be clear. To me, as an American speaking English, the form:

Pottery of Italy Earthenware of Italy

is the most comprehensive and straightforward, but--all these forms have been used in the categories I am looking at. Thank you for your time, dedication, and patience! I'm sure these questions are repetitive. Sicklemoon (talk) 17:23, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Sicklemoon:. I'm glad to clarify this. In Italy we have had an enormous production of works of art for 2700 years (Greek, Italic, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, etc.). Many of these works of art produced in Italy are now located in other countries. As the categories were created in Commons, we found a huge confusion regarding the works of art. To give an example, among "Paintings in Italy" there was paintings by Italian artists who were in Rome, Florence, Venice, but also Paris, London, New York. So more than 10 years ago a group of users decided to organize the whole category-tree of Italian art in this way: works of art made or found in Italy are categorized "in Italy". Works of art made or found in Italy but which are now in other countries, are categorized "from Italy". Works of art that we don't know exactly where they are today, are categorized "of Italy", waiting to clarify better if they are in Italy or outside Italy. The "of Italy" category is at the same time the mother-cat of the two sub-cats "in Italy" and "from Italy". This is how all categories of Italian art are organized, whether by place, by era, by object or by type of art (painting, sculpture, mosaic, ceramics, glass, metals, etc.). I hope that the system applied for the art of Italy has become clear to you. Best regards, DenghiùComm (talk) 20:37, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

@Carlo Dani: E' vero, oramai Poste Italiane non ha più il monopolio, e ci sono anche altri operatori. Ma se nella foto di un ufficio postale non è specificata questa cosa, essa va messa nella categoria generica degli uffici postali in Italia.

Ah ok. I have not noticed. I'm sorry. Thank you. --DenghiùComm (talk) 20:32, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
No problem at all. I also noticed it several days ago, after 11 years of being active here on Commons. We always learn something new. :) --Orijentolog (talk) 08:16, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Bernd GrimmEdit

Hi, eine Frage. Warum hast du diese Kategorie entfernt? Category:Architectural models ? Es ist doch ein architektonisches Modell? Wäre dankbar für eine Info. LG, --Gyanda (talk) 21:34, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

@Gyanda: Weil es beim File:Bernd Grimm Modell des Parthenon.jpg um eine überkategoriesierung geht. überkategoriesierungen müssen abgeschafft werden. Die Kategorie, die angegeben werden muss, ist immer die spezifischste. Die überkategorien sind überflüssig, also müssen sie abgebaut werden. Das beweist die korrekte Kategorien Folge oder Kette : "Models of Parthenon" ist eine unterkategorie (=subcat) von "Models of ancient Greek temples", subcat von "Models of ancient Greek buildings", subcat von "Models of ancient Greek architecture", subcat von "Architectural models of Greece", subcat von "Architectural models by country", subcat von "Architectural models". Alles klar ? Liebe Grüsse, DenghiùComm (talk) 12:48, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
Ich bin voller Bewunderung, dass du das tatsächlich verstehen kannst! Ich bin schon froh, wenn ich überhaupt gut passende Kategorien finde, ich weiß nicht, ob ich das in Zukunft immer richtig machen kann, ich entschuldige mich jetzt schon vorab... manche Dinge gehen einfach nicht in meinen Kopf, Sprachen ja, aber Logik... *sigh*... Entschuldigung, bitte. LG, --Gyanda (talk) 13:55, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gyanda: Musst dich sicher nicht entschuldigen ! Wir mussten es auch verstehen und haben mehrere Fehler gemacht in der Vergangenheit. Wenn es dich trösten kann : es gibt gar nichts zu verstehen. Man muss es nur logisch wissen. Die Commons Struktur ist Baumartig, wie ein Stamm der sich mehr und mehr verastet, oder wie eine russische Puppe, ein grösseren Behälter, der immer kleinere Behälter enthält. Ein Beispiel : Du hast die Welt, in ihr hat es verschiedene Kontinente (subcat), in jedem Kontinent verschiedene Nationen, u.a. Deutschland (subcat), in Deutschland verschiedene Länder (subcat), in jedem Land verschiedene Kreise (subcat), in jedem Kreis verschiedene Gemeinden (subcat), usw. Bei unseren architektonischen Kategorien die Kategorie "Architecture" enthält verschiedene subcats, z. B. "Buildings" (=Gebäude) (subcat), und die bestehen aus Kirchen, Paläste, Häuser, Türme, Schlösser, usw (alles subcats), aber es gibt eben auch andere dinge die zur Architektur gehören aber keine Gebäude sind, z. B. Stadtmauern, Brücken, Monumente, Friedhöfe, Architektonische Elemente, Modelle, usw. die eben keine Gebäude sind aber einfach zur "Architectur" gehören. Weiss nicht ob es dir etwas klarer geworden ist. Frage mir was du wissen möchtest, ich beantworte dir gerne (was ich weiss). Alles Gute. DenghiùComm (talk) 15:54, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
@DenghiùComm: Hi, DenghiùComm, den Teil versteh ich durchaus noch, aber wenn ich dann konkret Kategorien suche, dann finde ich es nicht mehr verstehbar, welche was ist... sie sehen von der Überschrift her alle gleichwertig aus, von daher... ich bin dann glücklich, wenn ich überhaupt passende finde in dem Wust von Kategorie-Möglichkeiten, dass ich nicht mehr versteh, welche Ober- und welche Unterkategorie ist...beim nächsten Foto, das ich hochlade, melde ich mich hier nochmal vorher und frage, ob das so stimmt, wie ich es plane, okay? :-). Merci, --Gyanda (talk) 18:45, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gyanda: Ja, es sieht kompliziert aus. Es ist es aber nicht, wenn man nur weiss wie es organisiert ist. Und das ist ganz einfach : in der mitte der Seite findest du Unterkategorien (subcats), dafür zu unterst findest du die Oberkategorien (in dem ist es eigentlich unlogisch... genau das gegenteil...). Ich kann dir nur raten, wenn du mal Zeit und Lust hast, einfach zu üben. Such dir eine Kategorie aus die du gut kennst oder die dich besonders interessiert oder am Herz liegt, und "wandere" in ihr herum wie in einem Park... zuerst in die Oberen Kategorien (die sich eben zu unterst befinden), immer weiter hinauf, schaust mal wohin sie dich führen... Dann wenn du in Europa gelandet bist, rennst den Unterkategorien nach (die sich eben in der mitte der Seite befinden) und schaust mal wo du landest. Sehr einfach, und auch lustig. Entdeckst allerlei... So bekommst du das Kategorie Gefühl dass dich dann nachhinein ganz automatisch herumführt, ohne Probleme. Versuchs mal ! Viel Freude. Stelle mich weiter zur Verfügung. Auch für deine nächsten Fotos. LG, DenghiùComm (talk) 21:07, 1 October 2020 (UTC)


Ciao. Let me explain, no problem. I found the image at [3], I searched it and it seemed to me that it was Ponticelli Sabino, if I'm wrong, please correct me! I swapped towns in Europe by towns in Italy to see if someone with more knowledge of the area would do something (as you have done, thanks).

And the reversal, let me explain too. I removed the category because it is a general view of a building, there is an oculi, but many other things, which, I think, there is no need to categorize because it does not contribute anything, it's just incidental. Un abbraccio. --Joanbanjo (talk) 17:38, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Joanbanjo. I thought that Ponticelli Sabino was a name of a man, this is the reason because i asked to you. But after i found that it was the name of a village in Italy and that it was correct, and so i delete my message to you. I am very grateful to you that you have identified the location of this image which was unknown since many years.

About the deleted "oculi" i disagree with your deletion of the category. "Oculi" is an architectural element, and in that pictures of palaces you can see how they are used and where they are employed. Thank you. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 21:16, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
