Steigerberg etc.Edit

Hallo Gretarsson, hab gedacht, da es Rhyolith ist, würde es sich um Tuff handeln. PS: Bist Du auch ein deutscher Island-Freund (Dein Name!)? Reykholt (talk) 12:57, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Dir ist aber schon klar, dass Rhyolith ein Lavagestein ist und dass das dazugehörige Tuffgestein explizit Rhyolith-Tuff heißt? Ja, mein Nick ist isländisch, ist aber eher Zufall. Ich hab eigentlich keine besondere Affinität zu Island oder Nordeuropa allgemein... --Gretarsson (talk) 13:21, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

File:Teufelstisch Kreuzschichtung.jpgEdit

Hallo Gretarsson,
ich habe die Kategorie [[::Category:Buntsandstein|Buntsandstein]] aus dem Foto gelöscht weil die Kategorie Teufelstisch (Hinterweidenthal) eine Unterkategorie von Buntsandstein ist.
Meines Wissens sollen Bilder immer der untersten Kategorie zugeordnet werden und nicht gleichzeitig in einer übergeordneten.

MudcracksEdit

I agree with the fact mudcrakcs are related to sedimetology, but in an undirect way, no more than theese. I removed that category because i'm actually trying to organize part of the matter eliminating the recursive sub-categories. (Mudcracks->Dried muds->Muds->Types of soil->Soils->Sedimentology; and also Mudcracks->Dried muds->Soil cracks->Soils->Sedimentology).--Ciaurlec (talk) 22:24, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

OK, I see the problem: Soils are erroneously categorized under Sedimentology because soils are subject of their own science, soil science, which has only slight overlap with sedimentology... --Gretarsson (talk) 23:14, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
As you suggest, for the moment "Mudcracks" could stay on category "Sedimentology" as a direct sub; surely the partial overlapping of sedimentology, geomorphology and soil science requires a less linear classifying system and more attention on classifying files. Thanks for your opinion. Good work and see you again. --Ciaurlec (talk) 22:19, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Kategorie Middle Ugab ValleyEdit

Danke für das Erstellen der neuen Kategorie: "Middle Ugab Valley" und das Verschieben der dazugehörigen Bilder ! Gruß --Olga Ernst (talk) 13:43, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

@Olga Ernst: Keine Ursache. Es scheint wirklich so zu sein, dass dem Namibia-Geotouristen die Gegend mit der Fingerklippe als das „Ugab Valley“ verkauft wird, aber ich hatte ja schon ausgeführt, warum das eine sehr unglückliche Namenswahl ist. Nun ist „Middle Ugab Valley“ auch nicht sehr viel glücklicher, verhindert aber hoffentlich, das keine Bilder vom Ugab River dort landen, die an anderen Stellen des tatsächlichen Ugab-Tals aufgenommen wurden, wie dieses hier, das am „Unterlauf“ aufgenommen wurde, ca. 150 km Luftlinie von der Vingerklip entfernt...
Was ich jetzt aber nicht verstehe ist, warum du jetzt deine Bilder von den Organ Pipes in die Kategorie Namib Desert gesteckt hast. Meines Wissens ist die Namib auf die Küstenebene beschränkt und reicht ausschließlich im Bereich der Sand Sea mehr als ein paar Dutzend Kilometer weit ins Landesinnere... --Gretarsson (talk) 18:27, 31 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi Gretarsson, habe gelesen dass sich die Namib Desert bis ca. 160 km ins Landesinnere erstreckt - deshalb fast überall noch "Namib Desert" dazugetan ! Wenn dies falsch ist nehme ich die Kategorie natürlich wieder raus ! --Olga Ernst (talk) 21:39, 31 August 2018 (UTC)
Im Artikel Namib hatte ich diese 160 km gefunden. Stimmt das etwa nicht ? Gruß --Olga Ernst (talk) 08:46, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Naja, da steht „bis 160 Kilometer“, das gilt wohl nicht für den gesamten Küstenstreifen vom Namaqualand bis nach Angola... --Gretarsson (talk) 16:21, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Ich entferne deine Bilder daher erstmal wieder aus dieser Kategorie, und auch die übrigen Bilder in dieser Kategorie, die Basaltsäulen zeigen, für die (überdies) sämtliche geographische Angaben fehlen... --Gretarsson (talk) 16:52, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Ist in Ordnung so ! Danke für die Mühe ! Gruß und schönes Wochenende --Olga Ernst (talk) 17:08, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

remove CDATAEdit

In File:Ascendonanus_skull_reconstruction.svg as well as in File:PalZ_logo.svg the files contain useless CDATA-Elements, they should be removed before uploading.

In Template:Cdata/doc you can find some posibilites how to remove CDATA in SVG-files.

If you need any help please ask me.

Thank you you decreased the filesize of File:PalZ_logo.svg from 490kB to 2.6kB (0.0052 of original file) .  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 21:35, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Yes, this was truly “code overkill”. Think I should disable “preserve illustrator editing capability” when saving illustrator work as SVG... --Gretarsson (talk) 21:57, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Category:AptychiEdit

Hello,
Every taxon category (like Category:Aptychi) must be placed in its parent taxon category (like Category:Cephalopoda).
Category:Ammonoidea fossils is not a taxon category.
For information, Category:Ammonoidea fossils should contains only fossils pictures or Category:XXXX fossils, no taxon categories.
So Category:Aptychi should not be in Category:Ammonoidea fossils (because Category:Aptychi can contain mdeia that are not fossils, like reconstitutions, pdf...)
Regards Liné1 (talk) 17:14, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Aptychi is not a ‘normal’ taxon but a form taxon or parataxon of ammonoid fossils, hence it doesn't make much sense to put it in a ‘normal’ taxon category (the correct one of which btw would be Ammonoidea, not Cephalopoda). So Ammonoidea fossils IMHO is quite a good parent category for Aptychi... --Gretarsson (talk) 17:36, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
Addendum: ... and ‘subclass Aptychi’ is plain nonsense. Where does this come from?! --Gretarsson (talk) 17:40, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Categories/subcategoriesEdit

Hello!

I am helping out @MHNNBL: to upload the fish fossils photographs on here, and to add categories to the images. Unfortunately, neither of us is experienced creating categories as subcategories. For example, I would like to create the category for Planohybodus, a kind of Hybodontidae fossil. So I went to the relevant category, but then was not so sure of the next move. Where do I create the "Planohybodus fossil" category to make sure it becomes a subcategory of "Hybodontidae fossil"? Thanks in advance!--Flor WMCH (talk) 12:31, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

The correct order ist to create the category first, and then put it into parent categories: Create Category:Planohybodus fossils by klicking on the redlink (note that category names should – almost – always be plural forms). You will get to the edit mode of that category page. At that point the page will not definitely be created yet. Add the text [[Category:Hybodontidae fossils]] in the edit window. Save the page. The category then will be created an will be a subcategory of the category “Hybodontidae fossils”.
Alternatively you could simply save without adding any text and then add the category to parent categories using HotCat, i.e. the “(++)” sign in the footer of the category page. Hope that helps. --Gretarsson (talk) 12:46, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Geological maps of the MoonEdit

 
For comparison: ↑ This ↑ is a geological map of the moon...
 
...↑ this ↑, however, is not a geological map of the moon, but a map related to one aspect of the moon’s geology, the crustal thickness...

Please, explain to me the issue, then. I'm up for education. (Also, in the future, don't simply blanket revert an edit if it contains elements that aren't at issue.) Huntster (t @ c) 21:04, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

I have already outlined the issue in the edit comment line, accompanied by a link to w:Geological map. As it becomes obvious from that article, the concept of „geological map“ does not include every map that is somehow related to geology but only a certain type of maps that are related to geology. Geological maps typically depict the surface geology of the mapped area. This is done by subdivision of the surface geology into geologic units. These units can be defined by lithology only (i.e. granite, basalt, sandstone, limestone), by relative age only or by something in between (so-called rock-stratigraphic units). The map in question is a thickness map in which the (calculated/inferred) thickness of the moon’s crust is shown. It is related to the moon’s geology but has in fact nothing to to with a geological map.
Regarding “blanket revert”: Thanks for mentioning. I also do not consider your other edits helpful and/or necessary. Why do you replace the annotation that the given date marks the last update (as it is stated on the NASA page) by “released”? What exactly is the benefit? Why do you replace the annotated/labelled source link by a naked URL? This is, sorry, silly! If the link will break at some point and someone is for some reason interested in the source page no one will know what to search for! The URL is included in the wikitext anyway! --Gretarsson (talk) 14:27, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for the more detailed explanation. While I don't necessarily agree in terms of our basic categorisation, I'm not going to press the issue as you've clearly made your argument. As for the other points. The vast majority of top-level nasa.gov webpages include a templated footer, which "Page Last Updated" is part of. If you look on the Photojournal page, however, it is more clearly demarked as when the image was released, rather than simply when the page was last edited. For the URL, I personally find piping links unnecessarily cosmetic and pointless. It accomplishes not very much other than obfuscating at a glance the source of the image. For purposes of identification, I specifically included {{NASA-image|center=JPL|id=PIA17674}}, which is the image's universal identifier. Huntster (t @ c) 20:52, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
In don’t agree in that a “piped link” is generally an “obfuscation”. As long as the link text (and accompanied text) do clearly identify the source it is at least equally helpful/telling than a naked URL. And, as I already said, when the link breaks at some point, e.g. because the linked website/webpage moves to a new server with quite different page/file/database structure, a naked URL may become completely useless... --Gretarsson (talk) 10:39, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

WarningEdit

Hallo, bitte entferne nicht die Ortskategorie. Du kannst gerne eine Unter-Kategorie davon anegen und dorthin verschieben, aber bitte entferne nicht komplett und schon gar nicht durch Edit-War. Es gibt hier keine Regel, die besagt, dass eine Ortskategorie unter keinen Umständen angemessen ist.

Bloßes Entfernen gegen den Konsens (weitere Benutzer im Forum sagen, die Ortskategorie sollte nicht entfernt werden) kann als Vandalismus angesehen werden und zur Sperre führen. Danke. --A.Savin 18:29, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Uiuiui, „Warning“, jetzt krieg ich aber Angst. Dachte immer, zu einem Edit-War gehören zwei? Ansonsten denke ich, sollten wir die Diskussion dort weiterführen wo sie angefangen hat. Ich hab da auch schon mal was vorbereitet… :-) --Gretarsson (talk) 00:47, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Allosaurus?Edit

Hi Gretarsson,

You don't agree that this skull belongs to a Megalosaurus, File:Dino - Megalosaurus - 1.jpg. But I think that on the label in the museum they wrote Megalosaurus. Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 08:29, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

 
Skull reconstruction of Megalosaurus; unknown bones are rendered in dark grey
Allosaurus skull reconstruction…
…and another one…
…and yet another one.
All three look as if they were identical to the alleged “Megalosaurus” skull reconstruction (which is because all four are probably replicas of the same Allosaurus fragilis skull reconstruction, based on the work of Madsen, 1976)
Hi DenesFeri,
then there are three possibilities:
1) The labelling was plain wrong, which would be a really severe lapsus, and I can hardly imagine that.
2) You confused the label with that of a nearby exhibit of Megalosaurus.
3) Your memory is incorrect.
Anyhow, the skull reconstruction on your picture is extremely similar to the skull reconstruction of Allosaurus fragilis as published by Madsen (1976, Plate 1). Furthermore, there are only a few skull bones known from Megalosaurus (cf. drawing in the upper image to the right). For instance, the lacrimal is not known. So reconstructing the skull of Megalosaurus with a prominent lacrimal “horn” would be quite speculative since most Megalosaurids from which the lacrimal is known do not have a pronounced lacrimal “horn” (e.g. Torvosaurus, Dubreuillosaurus, Eustreptospondylus). Also, the skulls of megalosaurids are generally rather low and elongated, accompanied by a dorsal/nasal process of the maxilla that is directed posteriorly rather than dorsally. So the skull of Megalosaurus may have resembled that of Torvosaurus rather than that of Allosaurus… --Gretarsson (talk) 11:53, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
Hi Gretarsson, I'm not an expert in dinosaurs, so I believe you. And thank you for the correction! Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 08:29, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
