Puerto del RosarioEdit

Hola, tienes razón la situación es caótica, hay grandes discusiones al respecto lo que sí es cierto que , conforme a fuentes documentales, las descripciones del BOE o sus equivalentes autonómicos son lo más preciso, pero en la práctica, como se reconoce autononía a los entes locales la situación es caótica porque con frecuencia mantienen diseños tradicionales o incluso desde hace ya años los vienen sustituyendo arbitrariamente por logos que nada tienen que ver sin derogar los escudos heráldicos.

Resumiendo: Oficialmente el escudo tendría que tener azul intenso (azur) que destacaría sobre la bandera. El ayuntamiento usa el azul más o menos claro de su bandera que en heráldica se blasona (describe) como CELESTE, término que no aparece en la descripción...

Para evitarte perder el tiempo en discusiones, debes saber que en la Wikipedia se acordó que en caso de discusión prevalece lo que aparezca en BOE o boletín autonómico, algo que me parece lógico. Aunque en la vida real y, dada la autonomía municipal ten en cuenta eso, que usan un azul blasonado como celeste, la situación como te comenté es caótica, este caso es un ejemplo aunque los hay peores.

  • Celeste heráldico, uso de facto municipal [1]
  • Azur (azul oscuro), ajustado a la descripción del boletín en una web oficial canaria [2]

Un saludo--Heralder (talk) 17:21, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Lo mejor es que uses los colores y líneas de aquí  , el azul es más próximo al celeste pero continúa siendo oscuro, yo uso otro diseño. En la consola (adorno exterior) tendría el color amarillo sin brillo de la base de la corona sería también plano (deja una única capa de color y cambia el borde a color negro con menor grosor). La corona (y la consola) la tienes más ajustada tanto en colores como diseño aquí   Un saludo de nuevo --Heralder (talk) 18:19, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Categoría Castle of La PerojaEdit

Hola, he visto que has creado las categorías Castle of La Peroja y Bridge of the Bibei, los nombres de esas categorías son incorrectos porque en inglés esos nombres deben ser los oficiales y por lo tanto deben ser A Peroxa y O Bibei. Revisa los nombres que hayas creado en otras categorías de monumentos de la Comunidad de Galica y otras porque puede que sean incorrectos. Si necesitas ayuda puedes contactar conmigo. Saludos, --Elisardojm (talk) 09:34, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Voy a revisar las de Galicia y las que pueda arreglar ya las cambio, pero os quedan las de las demás comunidades. Además hay que tener cuidado porque puede que ya existan otras categorías para eses monumentos con el nombre en castellano o en el idioma de la comunidad, yo acabo de encontrar la categoría "Castelo de Castro Caldelas" y la he pasado a "Castle of Castro Caldelas" que hiciste tu, y que había quedado repetida.

Hola Iván, creo que deberíais retirar la es:Necrópolis de Arteara del listado, porque tiene fotos e incluso categoría. También habría que actualizar es:Anexo:Bienes de interés cultural de la provincia de Las Palmas para incluir alguna foto y el enlace correcto a la categoría (Category:Necrópolis de Arteara). Saludos --Discasto talk 10:53, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

No me convencéis ;-) pero... en todo caso, incluye la categoría en el listado de es:Wikiproyecto:WLM/Bienes de interés cultural de la provincia de Las Palmas para que, al menos, si alguien sube alguna foto, quede bien categorizada. Un placer oír de ti también :-) --Discasto talk 13:18, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

FotoEdit

Para es:Monumento natural de Isla de Terreros e Isla Negra: File:Isla Negra - Almería.jpg. Un saludo --Discasto talk 22:39, 2 September 2016 (UTC) PS: se puede usar también para es:Anexo:Lugares de importancia comunitaria del MAGRAMA (Fondos del levante almeriense)

Hola, tengo algunas "tareas" más. He conseguido una foto para ilustrar es:Isla de Terreros. Es esta: File:Isla de Terreros.jpg. Por otra parte, he estado trasteando con algunas categorías de BIC. Category:Castle of San Juan de los Terreros es la categoría del es:Castillo de San Juan de los Terreros. Habría que incluir la categoría en los dos listados pertinentes: es:Anexo:Bienes de interés cultural de la provincia de Almería y el equivalente de WLM de este año (sí, este BIC tenía ya foto). Por otra parte, he adecuado el nombre de la categoría de la es:Iglesia Matriz de Santa María de Guía, para que sea Category:Mother church of Santa María de Guía, así que toca cambiarlo en los anexos correspondientes.

Muchas graciasEdit

Hola, me paso por aquí para agradecerte sinceramente tu participación en el debate de mi desbloqueo, incluso si ha sido finalmente infructuoso. Tras más de dos años completamente alejado de la interacción con la Wikipedia en Español, me causa gran tristeza el nuevo fracaso de mi petición. Como ya he comentado en mis peticiones de desbloqueo de las últimas semanas, mi única intención es pasar página y seguir contribuyendo al conocimiento libre. Reconozco la frustración de seguir en el mismo punto en el que estábamos en 2012, cuando ya se arguyeron políticas inexistentes para negar un desbloqueo que, aparentemente, cuenta con un respaldo mayoritario por parte de todos aquellos que han querido pronunciarse sobre el tema.

También te lo agradezco porque, posiblemente, no has apoyado mi desbloqueo por tu simpatía o cercanía hacia mí, sino porque crees que ese precisamente no es un argumento relevante y sí el avance del proyecto. Precisamente porque soy consciente de todo lo ocurrido y de todas las cosas que hice mal es que te doy las gracias por querer darme una oportunidad para demostrar con hechos que lo lamento y que deseo reparar los perjuicios causados. No voy a tirar la toalla y seguiré intentando poder volver a reintegrarme en el proyecto, con los mismos deberes que todos los demás, pero también con los mismos derechos. Hasta que esto ocurra, seguiré con mi labor en Wikiexilio, aquí en Commons y en Wikidata.Gracias finalmente por haber dado la cara en un debate en el que lo más cómodo era simplemente quedarse al margen. Un afectuoso saludo --Discasto talk 15:05, 7 September 2016 (UTC)


Welcome, Dear Filemover!Edit

 

Hi Ivanhercaz, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{Rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{Speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

Valued Image PromotionEdit

Your nomination has been reviewed and promoted
Congratulations! The image you nominated was reviewed and has now been promoted as a valued image. It is considered to be the most valued image on Commons within the scope:
Facade of Town hall of Almadrones Spain.
If you would like to nominate another image, please do so at Valued images candidates.

File:Governor-General Pierre Ryckmans.jpgEdit

First, Second, Thrid. Phantastic. This is how we wokr here together? I decline a request, because if names confuse, the file on the Wikipedia has to be changed, not the Commons file, because of here is the center for files, that get used by different projects. So the file names on the single projects must change. Then comes a person who undo my administrative descission - und you then do what this person wants. Phantastic! Great! So we can stop projects as Commons, because this can not work for longer. Marcus Cyron (talk) 12:47, 24 October 2016 (UTC) PS: maybe we have to talk about your right to move files.


Code issues in User:Ivanhercaz/toolbarPlus.jsEdit

Hi Ivanhercaz, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:Ivanhercaz/toolbarPlus.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 5 new jshint issues — the page's status is now having warnings. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
  1. ISSUE: line 1 character 2: Expected a string and instead saw {. - Evidence: {{Delete|Unnecessary}}
  2. ISSUE: line 1 character 3: Expected ':' and instead saw 'Delete'. - Evidence: {{Delete|Unnecessary}}
  3. ISSUE: line 1 character 9: Expected a JSON value. - Evidence: {{Delete|Unnecessary}}
  4. ISSUE: line 1 character 9: Expected '}' and instead saw '|'. - Evidence: {{Delete|Unnecessary}}
  5. ISSUE: line 1 character 10: Expected '(end)' and instead saw 'Unnecessary'. - Evidence: {{Delete|Unnecessary}}

Category:Old town of Santa Cruz de La PalmaEdit

Hi Ivanhercaz, what streets and buildings are included and what is excluded? Note that there are modern buildings within the old town and that there is no clearly visible border between the old town and the rest of Santa Cruz de La Palma. This category urgently requires a clear definition. Otherwise it will degenerate to a hotchpotch of everything that in Santa Cruz de La Palma looks old in the eyes of some users. Greetings, -- Ies (talk) 15:14, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Ies!
Excuse me for not reply to you until now. At this moment, I can't define the streets and buildings included and excluded in the old town of Santa Cruz de La Palma. I am going to search official resources that allow me to define the limits of this old town. I made a fast-research and I found the BIC declaration (in Spanish, if you are interested, I can translate the fragment about it), but it doesn't define what is included; it talks about what has historical and artistic value. I am not sure with that.
I am agree with you, if we don't define this category it could converted in a hotpotch of everything in S. C. de La Palma. I will try to fix it. I created this category as part of Wiki Loves Monuments, to review the photographs and have the lists prepared for the contest. Excuse me for not define it fine.
When I have something to tell you, I will send you another message!

Planos de Las PalmasEdit

Gracias por la sugerencia. Ya están subsanados los errores en este y los otros 4 planos que subí. Dichos errores fueron producto de mi apresurado e incorrecto uso del asistente automático de subidas.

La fuente es un cuadernillo de uso escolar editado por emalsa y la ULPGC referido al aula ambiental de Fuente Morales: Fuente Morales y el abastecimiento de agua a la ciudad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Aula Ambiental Fuente Morales. Ayto de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria; ULPGC; Emalsa. eduambiental.org.

Un saludo. Beta15 (talk) 23:22, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

¡Exquisitos planos, Beta15! Sin problema por los errores, para que es esto colaborativo sino para ayudarnos en todo lo que podamos. Muy interesante ese cuadernillo que comentas, no he tenido el placer de verlo. Gracias por hacerme saber que existe. A ver si un día puedo encontrarlo.
Por cierto, aprovecho que tenemos este «enlace» ―quiero decir que hemos tenido oportunidad de hablar a partir de esto― para preguntarte si estás interesado en que te notifique sobre actividades que se realicen en Canarias relacionadas con el Movimiento Wikimedia ―editatones, charlas, talleres, etcétera―. En su momento te compartí el anuncio de una editatón que organizamos desde Wikimedia España en el Castillo de Mata. Uno de los objetivos que tenemos es intentar agrupar a todos aquellos interesados en este movimiento. Y, de esa forma, estar en contacto, ya sean miembros o no de Wikimedia España; el punto de unión es nuestro objetivo e interés.
Espero tu respuesta. Si te puedo ayudar algún día en algo, me lo comentas y lo miramos.
Saludos, Ivanhercaz (talk) 02:10, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
En primer lugar decirte que en la pagina web de medioambiente del Ayto. de LPGC (eduambiental.org) puedes acceder a material imprimible para educación. Este concretamente aparece bajo el epígrafe Fuente Morales. Yo lo tengo físicamente y escaneé los planos (5 en total) porque igualmente me parecieron una referencia magnífica para muchos artículos relacionados con la historia de la ciudad y que por supuesto te invito a que uses, modifiques, o añadas información como te parezca oportuno, con la seguridad de que lo harás con buen criterio.
Con respecto a la información no dudes en comunicarte conmigo, aunque por desgracia no suelo contar con mucho tiempo libre por mis obligaciones familiares. En cualquier caso para alguna colaboración puntual podría encontrar un hueco. Un saludo y encantado de que hayamos contactado. Beta15 (talk) 19:37, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
¡Genial! Muchas gracias por la información, Beta15. Totalmente de acuerdo contigo, son planos bastante útiles que nos pueden ayudar a mejorar muchos artículos.
Te entiendo. Lo primero es lo primero, y ese puesto debe ser siempre para la familia. Yo hasta hace unos días he estado bastante desconectado por eso mismo. Entonces, te tendré en cuenta. He visto que tienes activada la opción de enviarte un correo electrónico, por lo que cuando tenga alguna actividad que comunicarte te lo notificaré en la discusión y te enviaré un correo electrónico. Por si acaso esos días no pasas por los wikiproyectos.
Igualmente, encantado de que hayamos establecido contacto.

Greetings,

The newsletter omitted two interwiki prefixes, breaking the links on non-meta wikis as you might see above. Here are the correct links:

  1. m:Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. m:Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.

  • The info portal on Structured Commons now includes a section on GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).
  • We are currently planning the first GLAM pilot projects that will use structured data on Wikimedia Commons. One project has already started: the Swedish Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. Read the project brief.
  • The documentation for batch uploads of files to Wikimedia Commons will be improved in 2019, as part of preparing for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. To prepare, the GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to understand better which types of documentation you already use, and how you like to learn new GLAM-Wiki skills and knowledge. Fill in a short survey to provide input!
Stay up to date!

Wiki Loves Love help neededEdit

Hello Ivanhercaz, You endorsed the Wiki Loves Love photo contest on Meta. This photo contest starts on 1 February. To be able to make the photo contest more accessible and available to more people in the world, it needs translations of the upload wizard, templates and pages to your local language. Please help us! Go to Commons:Wiki Loves Love 2019/Translations to see how needs to be translated. (In some languages there are maybe already some translations available.) Thanks in advance!!

Captions in JanuaryEdit

The previous message from today says captions will be released in November in the text. January is the correct month. My apologies for the potential confusion. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)Edit

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Problem in VIEdit

We must put in the caption the geocoding. For architectural images it is recommended to correct the percpetive errors. Like this Town hall of Almadrones.jpg. Welcome to VI where you seem to have a bright future.--Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:25, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Archaeodontosaurus! Thanks for your comments. I have put a {{Location}} template in each photograph of the respective categories of the three nominations I did, but I didn't add it in the caption. Should be added in this structured field?
I have many doubts about the perspective errors of the architectural images. I am reading about and trying to fix it. In the case of three photographs I nominated, whats exactly the error? I would like to see it clearly to learn to identify and solve it. What I tried with the Town hall of Almadrones.jpg was to keep all the horizontal lines straight and a central focus for the image. I am going to tell what I think of each image and I will wait your feedback to confirm that I have to correct this:
I await your answers! Again, thank you!
Regards, Ivanhercaz (talk) 09:30, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Perfect for geocoding. The vertical lines should be at most near the vertical. For the counter-dive one can accept a symmetrical angulation; the others follow without any need for correction. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 13:11, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
@Archaeodontosaurus: Nice! So after your comments I think the first and second file, the bell tower and the town respectively, should be straighten a bit. Before to upload new versions to Commons I would like to be sure that I understand you and I fix it fine. This link is the bell tower and this one is the town hall (public links will expire in 7 days). Could you confirm these are the changes you said me? As you said "the others follow without any need for correction" I understand just the bell tower needs a perspective correction, but just in case you refer to the town hall too I did a small correction in its perspective.
I await your answers!
Regards, Ivanhercaz (talk) 15:56, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi, On my Commons user page you have the possibility to send me an Email. Send me your address I quickly made the corrections in small formats I can send them to you so that you are an idea. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:39, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

did you receive my message yesterday? --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:23, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
@Archaeodontosaurus: Yes! Excuse me for the delay replying you, but yesterday I was busy and today I have been with migraine, so until now I couldn't reply nor work in nothing. Regards, Ivanhercaz (talk) 19:34, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
@Archaeodontosaurus: Fixed both images, the bell tower and the town hall. I await your comments. Regards, Ivanhercaz (talk) 20:27, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2019Edit

 
Hallo Ivanhercaz,

bald ist es soweit: Vom 1. bis zum 30. September 2019 findet zum neunten Mal der internationale Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments statt. Dabei können Bau- und Kulturdenkmale fotografiert und die Fotos hochgeladen werden. Du hast an einem der vergangenen Fotowettbewerbe teilgenommen. Deshalb laden wir dich ein, dieses Jahr wieder mitzumachen. Wir freuen uns auf deine Fotos!

Es sind viele spannende Motive überall in Deutschland zu fotografieren. Neben beeindruckenden märchenhaften Schlössern, Burgen und Kirchen können auch andere Kulturdenkmale wie Brücken, Industrieruinen, Bauernhöfe oder Parks fotografiert werden, um sie unter anderem in der Wikipedia zu dokumentieren. In den letzten Jahren sind zahlreiche neue Denkmallisten entstanden, die sich über Fotos freuen. Für die Suche nach Motiven gibt es bei Wikipedia zahlreiche Listen und Karten. Als Einstieg hilft diese Übersichtsseite. Weitere Informationen erhältst du auf der Mitmach-Seite.

Du bist interessiert, am Wettbewerb mitzuwirken, dir fehlt aber die richtige Technik? Dann wirf doch mal einen Blick in den Technikpool und das Technikleihportal von Wikimedia Deutschland! Dort findest du Kameras, Objektive und Zubehör verschiedenster Art. Sollte noch Technik fehlen, die aber in Zukunft unbedingt benötigt wird, dann freut sich Wikimedia Deutschland über dein Feedback zum Technikpool.

Außerdem laden wir Dich ein, ab Mitte September 2019 an der Vorjury teilzunehmen. Diese bewertet die hochgeladenen Bilder und ermittelt so gemeinsam mit der Jury, die im Oktober tagt, die Sieger von Wiki Loves Monuments 2019 in Deutschland. Das Vorjurytool ist hier bald freigeschaltet. Du benötigst dafür nur deinen Benutzernamen und das Passwort.

Für Fragen steht das Organisationsteam gerne auf der Support-Seite zur Verfügung.

Viel Spaß und Erfolg bei größten Fotowettbewerb wünscht dir im Namen des Organisationsteams --Z thomas 14:28, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - blogs posted in Wikimedia SpaceEdit

There are two separate blog entries for Structured Data on Commons posted to Wikimedia Space that are of interest:

  • Working with Structured Data on Commons: A Status Report, by Lucas Werkmeister, discusses some ways that editors can work with structured data. Topics include tools that have been written or modified for structured data, in addition to future plans for tools and querying services.
  • Structured Data on Commons - A Blog Series, written by me, is a five-part posting that covers the basics of the software and features that were built to make structured data happen. The series is meant to be friendly to those who may have some knowledge of Commons, but may not know much about the structured data project.
I hope these are informative and useful, comments and questions are welcome. All the blogs offer a comment feature, and you can log in with your Wikimedia account using oAuth. I look forward to seeing some posts over there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:33, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
