Your questions at Commons:Sexual contentEdit

Thanks for your input. The answers to those questions are quite easily derived, however due to the current chaos I am no longer able constructivly contribute to the proposal. - Stillwaterising (talk) 00:40, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Odd category additionEdit

File:Seattle - Uwajimaya Village 01.jpg: I removed Category:Japanese gardens, which you added to this photo. I see nothing in the photo (which I took) that can reasonably be called a "Japanese garden". - Jmabel ! talk 20:37, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello. It was because Category:Stone lanterns was in the category Category:Japanese gardens, but I deleted it because I moved all photographs to Category:Stone lanterns in Japan, except a few ones that were "Japanese stone lanterns, not in Japan" to which I reported Category:Japanese gardens by pure logic (without having a closer look to the photograph). I agree with you that there is no Japanese garden on this photograph; in fact, it may lack Category:Japanese stone lanterns one day... Regards, Jack ma (talk) 13:59, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

De-sysop RequestEdit

I would like to suggest that you request that your administrative privileges be revoked. - Stillwaterising (talk) 12:31, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Excuse me? Why would you suggest that? I'm unaware of anything inappropriate in my conduct at any time, and, indeed, I'm unaware of anyone, including you, ever having suggested that there is anything inappropriate in my conduct. - Jmabel ! talk 15:22, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
    • That seems quite strange to me... I'm relieved that you are an admin here, and the current heady discussions would be far less civil without your participation. SJ+ 16:44, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

Your description of the topics in question is quite accurate and to the point. Thanks for all the work you invested. Kind regards, Nemissimo (talk) 00:25, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Thank you. - Jmabel ! talk 00:57, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

IntentionEdit

Thanks for pushing forward with this, which is the fundamental question that will lead to a resolution. I think there are many different intentions that need to be teased out before we can find a good collaborative solution -- and perhaps identify some subintentions which are at odds with one another and need compromise. SJ+ 16:44, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

L'origine du mondeEdit

Hi Jmabel, of course I was sarcastic, or rather: I was angry. In fact, I still am. I am a steward and admin on several projects. In those roles I have stressed many, many times the importance of reaching consensus first before carrying out controversial edits. What do I say the next time now, when I advise somebody to strive for consensus and they reply: "Ah, you mean like Mr. Wales did?" Wutsje (talk) 20:04, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

I guess you reply, "And that all turned out so well, didn't it? We only lost, what, a dozen or two excellent contributors over something that if correctly handled would hardly have caused a ripple. Great model to emluate."
Sorry I didn't know your work, so I didn't know whether you were serious. You'll note that my response included "assuming you are serious" or words to that effect. - Jmabel ! talk 00:29, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Broken handEdit

I broke a bone in my right hand in a bike accident yesterday. Expect limited participation from me the next several weeks. - Jmabel ! talk 15:46, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks ...Edit

for this clarification [1] - I did not read the text carefully.... the business to find categories for uncategorized files has some problems from time to time. Best wishes Cholo Aleman (talk) 13:24, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Polar bearsEdit

Given your comments at the CFD for Category:Animals at the Philadelphia Zoo, you might want to take a look at the subcategories of Category:Ursus maritimus by country. Clearly most of those are not countries in which polar bears are actually found outside of zoos or museums, but categories like Category:Ursus maritimus in Italy nevertheless exist, in that case to categorize a single image of taxidermied specimens at an Italian natural history museum. And even more troubling, it's categorized by Category:Animals of Italy... These were created by User:Teofilo, who had also nominated the Philly category for deletion; I've left a note on his talk page. I'm used to dealing with these kinds of issues on Wikipedia; much less so here, where I tend to focus on just uploading and organizing my own content. Your help is appreciated.

Murals of Santa Maria AhuecatlanEdit

According to Mexican law, there is freedom of panorama even if the work is indoors. A church is considered to be public space.AlejandroLinaresGarcia (talk) 18:08, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Good. I didn't know that. - Jmabel ! talk 18:11, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

HelloEdit

question about page Arthur Sarkissian you have deleted the paintings from that page from that page and I would like to know how I can fix that problem I understand that I wrote "My own work" it was mistake and I was new in Wikipedia. please help me fix that problem I wrote "my own work" because I made that photos. please give me some advice. and also I have permission to use that photos because I asked Arthur Sarkissian to use that. PLEASE HELP. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hendrixmorisson (talk • contribs) 4 July 2010 (UTC)

I am guessing that the page in question is en:Arthur Sarkissian since there never has been a page Arthur Sarkissian. Those images were deleted by User:Wknight94, not by me, so he is more likely to know the specifics, but my guess is that they were photos of copyrighted works by Sarkissian with no evidence that he had granted an appropriate free license for these images. I had nominated one of them for discussion on that basis, and wrote a note on your talk page to alert you to that discussion; you never responded; Wknight94 followed up accordingly, and apparently extended my concern to numerous additional images you had uploaded. If you do indeed have Sarkissian's permission, please see COM:OTRS for how to make that clear, and then the pictures can be restored. - Jmabel ! talk 17:16, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Green Lake Aqua TheaterEdit

Hi Jmabel, it appears the Built in 1923 and 1938 categories were for File:Seattle - former Hollywood Theater 01.jpg, and then accidently copied and pasted to the three Green Lake Aqua Theater photos.

The en Wikipedia article Green Lake Aqua Theater says built in 1950. It has no mention of 1923, which is why I deleted that category. Benchill (talk) 01:59, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Oops. Sorry. - Jmabel ! talk 02:06, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

LithographiesEdit

It is an english word Why do you say it isn't?--Darwin (talk) 03:14, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

I replied you there as well. Please try to confirm if lithography really can't be used as a noun, apparently some people use it as such. If it is indeed incorrect, then it would be better to place a bot changing everything, there's a lot to change already. :S --Darwin (talk) 03:55, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Guilty as charged, though I wasn't the first to frenchify that word, it seems. Please accept my apologies for the mess I unwillingly caused. Can SieBot be back on business? --Darwin (talk) 04:20, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

FursEdit

After I have categorized your pow wow, you could look for some nice pictures of furriers or fur sellers for me?! http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Furriers_in_Seattle. Hopefull, in anticipation, best regards, the German furrier --Kürschner (talk) 07:06, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

I've just followed this list, feel free to revert. Nemo 17:45, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

ClarificationEdit

Just to clarify: you describe File:Magistrat hradec kralove.jpg as your own work. Are you, indeed, stating that you drew this yourself? If so, you may want to indicate some information about your background on your user page, since this is clearly the work of someone with professional training.

As posted on my talk page.

Yes File:Magistrat hradec kralove.jpg is indeed my own work. Its an HDR photograph. It is most certainly not drawing as I have no artistic talent at all. Feel free to look at other HDR photographs in my Picasa Galery. It is really easy to make them, anyone can do it. --Cz-David (talk) 09:16, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Admin inactivityEdit

Logos up for deletionEdit

Hey Jmabel,

I've been wondering this upon seeing so many, can we move 100px (and the majority of nonfree logos in article use) to Wikipedia under proper licensing? - Theornamentalist (talk) 16:07, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

As I remarked, I don't necessarily see a problem with that logo: it at least borders on being too simple to copyright. If the decision is reached that it is above the threshold for being copyrightable, certainly it should be moved to any Wikipedias that want it and that allow fair use justifications, rather than being deleted. I'll remark to that effect in the discussion. - Jmabel ! talk 16:32, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Got it, it seems like this comes up a lot, is there a process or bot, or is it done manually? - Theornamentalist (talk) 17:07, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
I think it's done manually. At least that's how I've done it the couple of times I took it on. I don't think the tool for interwiki transfers of images will transfer out of Commons. - Jmabel ! talk 18:45, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Please look at en:wpEdit

After deleting en:University Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), I thought of its picture and wondered — do you know if this church is in a National Register-listed historic district? If so, could you undelete and merge the content to the respective district article? Nyttend (talk) 21:55, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

No, it's not a listed building. It quite probably is worthy of an article—it is one of several rather notable congregations in Seattle's U. District—but it looks like the stub you deleted was no great loss. - Jmabel ! talk 04:46, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Good catchEdit

Thanks for spotting the problem with the "any time any purpose" text I added. Hopefully my revision will solve this... if not, your input is welcome. Wnt (talk) 19:41, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Deleting categoriesEdit

I see that, presumably after failing to get a response from User:Gödeke, you deleted Category:Cafés in Washington. The same editor created a number of inappropriate subcategories in Category:Restaurants in Nebraska. I moved the files back to their old categories, but the (empty) new ones are still around, and I'd like to get rid of them. Could you tell me how to go about this? I can't figure out the procedure for it. Thanks, and apologies for bothering you with newbie questions. --Ammodramus (talk) 20:12, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

WoodlandsEdit

Not sure what I was doing with Category:Woodlands Philadelphia rather than Category:The Woodlands Cemetery. I have now changed all the categories from Woodland Philadelphia to The Woodlands Cemetery. This leaves the question (as above) of what to do with the empty category? Thanks Smallbones (talk) 03:58, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

I'll clean it. - Jmabel ! talk 03:59, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

StopEdit

{{stop}} is for CommonsDelinker, not Siebot. As far as I know as soon as Siebot starts working on it the only way to stop it is to block it (I've tried changing/removing requests after I saved and it didn't work). I think putting {{stop}} on there stops Delinker until Byran starts it again. as it doesn't seem to be working now. (The same goes for blocking blocks, unblocking them won't make them automatically resume their work.) Rocket000 (talk) 06:32, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

My apologies, but someone should make that a lot clearer on the delinker page! - Jmabel ! talk 14:56, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Re: Nisqually quakeEdit

Thanks for the note. I encountered the categories at the photo you uploaded of the damage at the Cadillac Hotel, which was in both categories; this made me think that it was a Seattle earthquake, since I'd never before heard of it. Nyttend (talk) 11:12, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Pieter Kuiper (talk) 07:17, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Curious as to how you've handled commercial requests for your workEdit

Hello,

I’m curious as to how you’ve dealt with commercial requests to use your work, as I am trying to get some ideas on how to handle these types of requests. I have received a few myself but have deferred to the licensing terms of the CC/GFDL and now realize that I have probably left some money on the table. For example, what has or hasn’t worked for you, what kind (s) of licensing do you use for, and what else you can think of that may be helpful. If you feel it’s more appropriate, we can continue this discussion via email. Thanks. BrokenSphere (Talk) 20:19, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm perfectly glad to discuss it publicly.
First, let me say that for obviously low-budget, non-commercial uses of which I approve, I am always extremely accommodating. As long as they don't want me to sign away anything absurd - e.g., no, in a transaction where I'm receiving nothing, I won't indemnify you against someone else suing you over personality rights - I'm usually fine with just a photo credit.
For me, the division isn't whether they are commercial or not. There are non-commercial entities I'd treat the same way as commercial ones. For example, a photo of mine was recently used for the cover of a university course catalog. I certainly considered that to be in the same class as commercial use. But let's stick to the term "commercial use" as a shorthand, understanding that the term is meant loosely.
First, I always make it clear that they are free to conform to the terms of CC-BY-SA (or, in theory, GFDL, but it's much less convenient), and I explain what they'd have to do to conform.
Second, I explain to them that the reason I free-license my photos is primarily for the benefit of others who also work in a "copyleft" mode, and that since that is not what they are doing, and since they are doing something for which it would be normal to pay for photos, I basically expect to be paid, just like any other essentially professional-quality photographer. Again, they are free to conform to the "free license", but if they don't want to do that, then we should discuss this just like any other rights negotiation.
Often as not, at this point they walk away because they only want something they don't have to pay for. Oh, well. Otherwise, they typically offer their standard contract if they have one or, if not, a less formal statement of what they are willing to pay and what rights they want. I've found that the degree of formality varies widely, as does the degree of room for negotiation.
The rare times that they don't make the first offer, I'll make a fair guess based on what they are doing. The number will be higher if they are obviously working with a large budget; the per-photo number will be lower if they want to use several shots. I usually also want a copy of what's being produced, or at least bibliographical information I can add to the photo's Commons talk page.
Hope that helps. Feel free to ask further questions. - Jmabel ! talk 20:47, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the detailed response, I appreciate your insight. This is one of the unintended results of contributing a lot of my own work to the project. It's encouraging for me to see that I don't need a fancy camera (as I primarily use point and shoots) in order to generate these types of requests. I will let you know if I have further questions! BrokenSphere (Talk) 21:08, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for that from me too. I appreciate it. Andy Dingley (talk) 22:15, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

San Diego museumsEdit

Thanks for contacting me. I removed the categories from the Old Town images as the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park category is contained within the main Museums in San Diego, California category. Leaving the main category in there causes the images to show up twice, once in the main category and again in the sub-category. Please let me know if this makes sense. I've changed categories for hundreds of San Diego images recently and I'm sure I've made mistakes (fortunately I've caught some quickly). I'm also creating new sub-categories to help remove the large number of random images located in the main categories and improve the searching process for readers. --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 00:23, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

That makes sense. I'll research it further this weekend to see if there is a better category that can be created since there are several historic landmark locations throughout San Diego which could be better categorized. --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 07:14, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Category:Mehnaz Hoosein respectively Category:Manooghi HiEdit

moved to your page: May I ask why here and elsewhere you removed Category:Female vocalists from India from photos of Mehnaz Hoosein? She was born in India and her career has been mainly in India, where she has had at least one major chart hit. - Jmabel ! talk 01:28, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

You may. That and imho six other files have been categorized by you each other as Category:Female vocalists from India and Category:Manooghi Hi (all showing the same artist/lady). That's why Category:Female vocalists from India was added to Category:Manooghi Hi to provent "overwhelming" of Category:Female vocalists from India with images from the same artist ... i.e. removed from your series of files (from the same concert showing the Ms. Hoosein), one you've mentioned. BTW: According to Facebook, Ms. Mehnaz Hoosein is member ("lead vocal") of "Manooghi Hi", that's why that re-caterisation imho seem to be "correct". Please re-cat p.e. Category:Mehnaz Hoosein if wrong, thx. Please do not hesitate to create new categories for files showing the same (p.e.) artist, p.e. as "sub-category" of the band ;-) Roland 01:53, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Why ?Edit

Please, can you explain me why do you do this again? These are so simple requests! Thank you. --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:25, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Why is this necessary? Is Delinker not sufficient? And then, where is this "project page"? Thank you again. --DenghiùComm (talk) 16:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
As a non-admin, you have to put your requests on the talk page. An admin (that's me in this case) reviews them and moves them to the corresponding project page (User:CommonsDelinker/commands) to be acted on. - Jmabel ! talk 16:39, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

SlashesEdit

Hello. I just used the name used in the image descriptions. I have never heard that we aren't supposed to use slashes. If that's the case, I can move it. Have you seen that rule somewhere? I haven't come across it, but that doesn't mean anything. Best regards, --Skeezix1000 (talk) 12:38, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

I moved it anyway. Regardless of whether there is a rule against slashes or not, a Google search (which I ought to have checked in the first place) shows the monument appears to most commonly known as the Pioneer Monument. Thanks for picking up on the odd categor name. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 12:52, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

The imageEdit

It was a fusion of two images, one being this with the girl. The other was this. They're all freely licensed. It was of course to prove a point, but also to put some common sense in hard skulls that were showing up at the Commons:Sexual content page. Also, wonder if this image in question is useful for an encyclopedia. I think it isn't but opinions are just opinions. Also, what do you think of Photographs that would be illegal to host because the individual did not (or could not) give the necessary consent as required by law? Children can't give consent, and many people who are photographed haven't given explicit consent to be photographed and put on a site. Arbeforth (talk) 15:37, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

One half of the image
  1. In the United States, at least, no explicit consent is required for photographs taken in public places, and the definition of "public" is very broad.
  2. What's with the multiple accounts with similar names? It looks to me like an effort to evade a block. I personally am not going to block you again unless I see a second comparable incident, but I sure as hell won't defend you if someone else blocks this account.
  3. What you did is about as blatant a violation of COM:POINT as I've ever seen.
  4. It's a pretty damned long jump from the rather innocuous, tasteful nude pictures of adult women to which you have recently been objecting to the borderline legal, clearly useless, absolutely disgusting montage you uploaded.
  5. Commons images are not necessarily "useful for an encyclopedia". They merely have to be useful for some educational purpose, and "educational" is construed pretty broadly. If you look at my own work, I've taken a lot of pictures of Seattle and vicinity that are clearly not useful for an encyclopedia, but would be very useful for anyone a few decades from now who needs documentation of Seattle in the early 21st century.

Certainly your image violated the moral rights of the child depicted in the photo. Your intent was pretty unclear except if you were trying to show that you could create a disgusting and inappropriate image. If so, congratulations, you've proved yourself capable of being a successful troll, whoop-de-do. If your intent was to somehow suggest that we shouldn't have any images of erect penises, or of children, because one could be used inappropriately, you failed miserably. You could just as easily have montaged pictures of leading Nazis with leading figures of the British Labour Party to make an image just as inappropriate (if less disgusting): does that mean we shouldn't host pictures of Tony Blair or Adolf Hitler? - Jmabel ! talk 16:24, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

May I ask you to please explain?Edit

Hello Jmabel, I really have problems comprehending what you are trying to say here. As far as I'm concerned my comments were pretty much directed at the abstract, too. And do you think I am one of the people who liked Jimbo's rampage? Confused greetings --Dschwen (talk) 18:18, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Discussion sprawled over several pages and about six months, so I could easily have forgotten one person's remark, I have no sane way to find it, and so I don't think that is good use of my time to try. I don't remember you having been involved in the discussions at all, but perhaps you were and I have mis-remembered. I more than once suggested, during the half-year effort to hash out a policy, that despite Jimbo's rampage administrators should have discretion to speedy-delete an obviously useless sexual image. I got almost no support from anyone, except the uncomfortable "support" from people who thought that administrators should do more or less what Jimbo did. Many different people asserted that "out of scope" should never be grounds for speedy deletion, and that as long as an image was legal and proper rights had been granted, any judgment of it being "useless", "inappropriate", etc. came down to a judgment that it was out of scope. If you weighed in during that discussion and I've forgotten, my apologies. It was a long, complicated discussion with probably over 100 participants, and it is possible that I overlooked someone's participation, especially if they were not one of the people participating in a large way over time. - Jmabel ! talk 00:18, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I was not looking for an apology though ;-), I really jut needed clarification. I misunderstood the scope of discussion you were referring to. Indeed I did not participate in the sexual content discussion much, since it got so darn heated up in the beginning. But from what it sounds like we share very similar views. You are most welcome to notify me if you need any back up anytime on this subject. --Dschwen (talk) 00:45, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Great Northern FriezeEdit

Hi Joe, I saw the image of the Great Northern Building roof frieze on your Wikimedia home page: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Seattle_-_Great_Northern_Building_04_-_cropped.jpg

The size was perfect for a Firefox Persona image, so I tried it out today. Is it OK to put it up here? You are credited and it includes a link to the Wikimedia file: https://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/360354 I just uploaded a purple variant which should be visible from my list of Personas in a day or two: https://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/360400 Let me know and I can take them down ASAP.

Relocated buildings in BallardEdit

What's the substantive difference between the property you mention and the Blackman House Museum? All buildings in question were built as houses, and none are used as houses now; we generally put structures built as houses into house categories, even if they're no longer used as such, so I don't understand why you disagree with placing the Ballard photo into a house category. Nyttend (talk) 03:30, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

  • The Blackman House Museum is precisely a "house museum". It's laid out entirely like a house in use; it's just that no one lives in it. The buildings in Ballard were repurposed as part of the move. I don't think it's wrong to have some sort of house category attached to them (as well as an office building category); I just think that when something is referred to as a relocated house, there is a suggestion that the house structure remains more or less intact. In this case (unlike, say, Ward House in Seattle) it wasn't even the moving of a single building, it's two houses combined into an office building. Not a big deal, and I certainly won't fight about it, it's just one of the rare cases where I think your edit went in the wrong direction. - Jmabel ! talk 03:36, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
I wish I could come up with a parallel situation, but the closest I can think of is HMS Zubian, and both original pieces as well as the finished product were the same kind of boat. I just see it as useful to say that, because they were houses and because they've been relocated, they're relocated houses. Curious, is there a process here that's parallel to en:wp's Third Opinion? Nyttend (talk) 03:44, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

But there could well be other and better ideas... – Mu (talk) 09:43, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

BostonEdit

I noticed that you opposed the move from Category:Boston-> Category:Boston, Massachusetts] at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands, Foroa has rm'ed the move request (and your comment), you might want to participate in the discussion at Category talk:Boston.

I think this case highlights a couple issues Commons ought to handle: First is disambiguation should be tackled at Commons:Naming categories, and primary topics are part of that.

Secondly, I'm worried that the move process consists of "keep discussion active until the page is moved", and there's a presumption that once {{move}} is added the category will be moved in the end. The phrasing of the template suggests that to me - see Template talk:Move#Phrasing of template. We should be able to close discussions as "not moved" and "no consensus", not leave them floating for months.--Nilfanion (talk) 08:53, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Language questionEdit

Hi Joe, as a native speaker of English, could you advice us, whether a definite article should be used in titles like Castles in (the) Moravian-Silesian Region?

I. e., should we use:
  • Castles in Moravian-Silesian Region,
  • Castles in the Moravian-Silesian Region,
  • or both the variants are correct (preferably in the standard British English)?

Thanks, --Petrus Adamus (talk) 20:40, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

  • I'd use Castles in the Moravian-Silesian Region. I think "region" pretty much demands "the". I can't think offhand of an exception. - Jmabel ! talk 02:47, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
    What about Category:Churches in Pickens County, South Carolina or Category:Doors in County Londonderry? "Region" does demand "the", and "County" doesn't? How districts? Should we rename also all categories "... in ... District"? --ŠJů (talk) 05:10, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
    I can't really give you any rational basis for it, but, yes, "region" pretty much demands "the" and "county" doesn't. In fact, for "county" used this way, "the" is pretty much impossible. The only county I can think of where "the" is used is the Bronx ("in the Bronx"), but if one uses "county" then it's "in Bronx County", never "in the Bronx County".
    "District" usually gets "the": "in the Lakes District" in England, "in the University District" or "in the International District" in Seattle where I live. But if it's a numbered district, it's different, like "in District VII". - Jmabel ! talk 05:34, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
In general, I have a good feeling for it, but I have no idea about a precise rule. I tend to push it in the good direction when I am harmonising structures that have two camps. Bear in mind however that it takes one or two years to get it right (such as "The" cantons in Switzerland, "The" provinces in Italy). It seems to be easier/more natural when the name is "canton/district/province of xxx" than "xxx Canton/District/Province". I never understood why people try to drop the "the" in Category:Caucasus. In short, I only move to it when I see that many people are trying to use the "the" correctly"; I don't think that it is wise to push that as a one man action. --Foroa (talk) 07:42, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Foroa: The is probably the most elusive and mysterious word in English... at least for yours truly. The rules of the are never formulated in a concise manner (if it's possible at all), they are absolutely counterintuitive - drill and rote only (e.g. why "the Caucasus" but not "the Africa"?). I gave up looking for any logic there (and I'm speaking English for almost 40 years). Anyway, if you guys plan a global assault on districts-without-the, please tell the world before pressing the button. NVO (talk) 15:01, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Yes, as I can see anew, national languages are absolutely unsuitable for international communication, as foreigners cannot learn all the exceptions and use them correctly without extreme exertion and a period of life spent among native speakers, which is impossible for most of us. If only a neutral language was put into worldwide practice soon… --Petrus Adamus (talk) 17:42, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
I don't worry about it. Commons grows now at one new category per minute in an organic way. We have to do only 5 % of the harmonisation moves than we did 3 years ago. People are kind of auto-adaptive (basically, they copy from a related category). And there is a big difference between reading a language and writing it correctly. We try to use simple language constructs without inflections or conjugations, as those are a source of complexity and interpretation. Nevertheless, I would be happy to see a "The" rule in English. I would say that the The is needed if it concerns a collection (United States, Netherlands, "canton/district/province of xxx" ...) but there is more than that. --Foroa (talk) 18:59, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

cat sort - Building interiorsEdit

Hi Jmabel - I'm sorry my earlier response today (@ (Look2See1 talk) & @ Commons:Village pump#Sorting) did not directly address your specific question about [2]. I just re-clicked the link and was reminded. The Category:Building interiors in the United States has an alphabet full of subcategories of 'interiors by type' - and the specific example categories were lost among them. I had seen the cat. sort " |~ " used by other editors before in similar sub-cat/specific-cat. separations. If it is not an accepted wiki organizing technique I will not reuse it. Again, I'm sorry for the delay in addressing this.

File:Seattle Public Library ref desk 2A.jpgEdit

You wrote me:

I have now reverted you twice on an incorrect change at File:Seattle Public Library ref desk 2A.jpg. Category:Computer art is there for the artwork near the top of the picture, as mentioned in the description of the image. You have now twice removed that and added Category:Interiors which is redundant to Category:Library interiors. If you have some reason for the change you are making, please explain either here or on the file's talk page. However, please do not simply make the same change a third time.

Thank you for connecting joint with me. A few days ago I visited category 'Computer art', looking for a suitable picture. Category was like a garbage bin. There was everything: simple drawings, geometric figures, spirals and other mathematical curvies, photo-portraits of scientists and sculptors, pictures with rendering effects and photo effects, digital impressionism, digital mosaics, electronic musical instruments, computer generated images, icons, textures, inscriptions, diagrams, graphic scales, screen shots, pictures of old type monitors, software menus, broken files and etc. Several hundred images and nobody can find anything he wants. Hardly anyone will be able to navigate and find what needed. I placed the most files in the appropriate categories. But of course there were some images that I couldn't find suitable categories for them.

If you appoint me to an appropriate folder or an appropriate title for a new folder, I will surely locate the above mentioned picture there.

But if I leave the picture in that folder, it will soon be filled with pictures of all sorts and it will still look like a garbage bin; and the files placed there will be again 'unfindable' and unusable.

That is the meaning of the categories and the categorization - to find suitable images more easily and faster, and to use them more often.

What would you advise me in this case? --Gabriel VanHelsing (talk) 07:25, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Paragraph 5 is presumably irrelevant. It's not an idea, concept, principle, method, process, system, means, solution of technical, organizational or other problems, discovery, fact, or programming language. It's an image. The only potentially relevant passage I can see here is in Paragraph 6: "state symbols and signs". I have no doubt that the design of the coat of arms is not copyrighted, and that anyone would have a perfect right to do your own drawing or other rendering of the coat of arms. The question is whether once someone does such a drawing or rendering, that actual drawing or rendering is subject to copyright.

In other words, I have no doubt that we can host an image of this subject. I'm just not sure we can host this image.

May I suggest that you either take this to Commons:Village pump/Copyright (where copyright experts, far more expert than I claim to be, generally hang out) or consult Clindberg (talk · contribs), who is the most knowledgeable person on the topic I've encountered here?

OrthodoxEdit

As I am in Russia, where that Church was created 1000 years ago, I can't be an expert about American new organizations. But I think we should create main cat. Orthodox Christianity in the United States and put there Eastern Orthodox Christians from the United States and the particular Church. But you know, the words Orthodox Church it is the global word, like Catholic Church, but as we hadn't main pope, only many patriarchs, no one from Orthodoxes churches can't own the title of main and right. It just the battle of jurisdiction. E.g. exists such thing en:Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia and American buildings of en:Russian Orthodox Church who was enemy for an age - both Orthodox, and the only difference that second was Bolshevik's. So, just know that the particular Church isn't the only one who has the right for the name. Shakko (talk) 08:42, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

"Eastern Orthodoxy in the United States" or "Orthodox Christianity in the United States" absolutely would not be specific to that Church. But "Orthodox Church in America" is: it's a proper name, and there is little space for confusion because we don't normally use "...in America" categories, we have "...in the United States" categories and "... in North America" categories (the latter also including Canada and Mexico).
This is far from the only problem in the hierarchy around Eastern Orthodox churches. For example, en-wiki does a much better job in its category hierarchy of distinguishing Eastern Orthodoxy and Oriental Orthodoxy; also (as you allude to) there are several separate Russian Orthodox bodies operating outside of Russia (mostly split by the different attitudes they adopted during the Soviet era), and our category hierarchy here seems to have been put together by people who were largely ignorant of these distinctions. - Jmabel ! talk 09:00, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Elmer ScottEdit

So who is, or was, Elmer Scott and how does he come to have a memorial bench in front of the school in Carbonado? I was looking for a few photos of Carbonado to append as a gallery in the Esperanto Wikipedia article on the place, and wondered what makes this one notable. PS Glad to see that the Fremont Lenin statue is apparently not going to become invisible. --Haruo (talk) 11:40, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, no clue. I was passing through Carbonado for about 90 minutes (maybe less?), snapped a bunch of photos because Commons had almost none, and had to guess more or less arbitrarily what would be useful beyond the obvious public buildings. I figure pretty much any time a public memorial is erected that is of at least some significance, if only for someone who might be writing at length in the future about the specific town. - Jmabel ! talk 15:14, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Can you please give me some context here? If you are asking whether attributing the copyright is sufficient to upload an image to Commons, the answer is no. Commons only accepts public domain materials and certain free content. See Commons:SCOPE#Must_be_freely_licensed_or_public_domain.

DateiproblemEdit

?

Hallo Jmabel, ich habe eine Bilddatei in der deutschen Wikipedia hochgeladen, die den Anforderungen der Panoramafreiheit entsprach. Nun hat ein rumänischer User diese Datei auf Commons übertragen (sh. nebenstehend), leicht nachbearbeitet und "verkauft" sie in der angegebenen Lizenz als Urheber. Da ist doch einiges falsch. Ich habe die Datei bewußt nur in der deutschen WP veröffentlicht – aufgrund der Problematiken mit der Panoramafreiheit. Die Panoramafreiheit wird in der Kopie auf Commons auch verfälscht, weil das Bild nachbearbeitet wurde. Das ist zwar nur sehr geringfügig (an einem Tor wurde das Wort "Nordtor" entfernt), aber es geht doch auch um das Prinzip. Denn ich kann ja in diesem Sinne dann alle meine abfotographierten Bilder so nachbearbeiten, daß sie in meinem Sinne "perfekt" sind. Außerdem ist die Lizenz falsch. Was ist zu tun? Mediatus (talk) 10:54, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

I hope you don't mind my replying in English; it's a bit of a struggle for me to write in German, but let me know if there is anything you don't understand.
It looks from de:Datei:Weißenburg_Rekonstruktionsversuch.jpg that you released your image into the public domain. That would make it permissible (for example) for someone to claim the work as their own and not credit you at all, with or without that other person making modifications, so you really don't have any claim here at all. At least Saturnian chose to do you the courtesy of acknowledging you.
You could certainly add the information about Panoramafreiheit to the Commons page. You could even replace the image with what you consider the better version using the link that, in English, is called "Upload a new version of this file" (I don't know what the wording is in German). Or you could upload your original as an alternative version, and link the two using the "other_versions" field in the {tl|information}} template. But that's about all you could do.
I personally don't see much to choose between the two versions of the image. Saturnian was probably right to remove Nordtor for an inter-language version. Your image has, in theory, higher resolution, but it seems to me to have a resolution exceeding its actual level of meaningful information.
In the future, if you want to keep credit for your images, I'd recommend using a Creative Commons license that requires attribution instead of releasing your work into the public domain. Even then, though, Commons (and de-wiki) only allow licenses that allow others to freely create derivative versions of the image. - Jmabel ! talk 17:45, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your answer. I do not know, that you do not speak German. Sorry for me. My problem is, that I have made my photo from a table at the roman castle. In German I can upload it at the German Wikipadia with the word "Panoramafreiheit" (=en:Freedom of panorama). Freedom of panorama means – in German –, that you can photograph a objekt like this table, but you may not modify this object in a graphics program etc, because the rights are by the person, that made the table. Mediatus (talk) 18:07, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Ich kann Deutsch ganz gut lesen, aber ich schreibe es ganz schlecht. Ich habe es nür ein jahr in die Universität studiert, seit 40 jahre.
I wasn't aware of that particular limitation on Panoramafreiheit under German law, and I'm quite surprised. If your interpretation is correct -- that one cannot make derivative works -- then photographs whose rights are based on Panoramafreiheit should not be eligible for Commons at all. That has certainly not been the interpretation I believe has been used here up to now, and I'll bring the matter to Commons:Village pump/Copyright, with a cross-reference from Commons talk:Freedom of panorama. You can feel free to comment further (in English or German) at Commons:Village pump/Copyright. - Jmabel ! talk 19:16, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. Yes, I mean it is a problem with "Panoramafreiheit" at Commons. I and my friends at the German Wikipedia, upload this pictures only at the German Wikipedia. But I hope you can help. : ) Mediatus (talk) 19:21, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

  • OK! But don't blow on the water, buning with the milk. Have there been any claim from the authors (concerning the license)? And answer the question above (isn't that synonymous?). Is my variant actively wrong? Scriber en (talk) 19:21, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
    • No, what you wrote is not actively wrong, and you are more than entitled to word things that way on your own uploads. Everyone uploading their own material is pretty much entitled state their licensing terms their own way, as long as it is clear, and as a rule other people shouldn't change it once they do. - Jmabel ! talk 19:24, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
  • So, my action «was't actively wrong». Besides, template «Self|GFDL|Cc-by-sa-3.0|author=Joe Mabel» had been in file description before it (it wasn't my «invention»). There haven't been any claim from the authors (concerning the license). So, what was wrong? What rules are you based on? Scriber en (talk) 19:52, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
  • What was wrong was the removal from what I had in the "Permissions" section. Again: we allow people a lot of leeway as to how they state their permissions. You should not be overriding this on someone else's upload of their own work unless they are actively wrong. In this case, I'm not even consistent about how I do this, and it was no particularly big deal, but since you are apparently making edits to other people's files, it is best that you know that this is something not to do. - Jmabel ! talk 01:36, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
  • So, be correct, please: that was not deletion - that was substitution. (I could understand you if it was deletion.) But, what you had in the "Permissions" section was totally identical with that, what you had in the "Licensing" section (it's your temlate, isn't it?). Could you explain what's the difference between them? Again, you said: «we allow people a lot of leeway as to how they state their permissions» but didn't link with the rules are you based on - why twice(?), may be you should state your permission third time at one description (I don't know). And, of course, you should link the rules if you said: "it is best that you know that this is something not to do" (is it your personal /even though administrator's/ opinion "what is something not to do" and "best me to know"?). Scriber en (talk) 07:19, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I choose to restate my permissions beyond what is minimally required because my photos get picked up quite a lot by media, and in my experience if I don't restate things like this there is a tendency for them to be credited to "Wikimedia Commons" rather than to me.
  • I have no idea whether this particular rule has been formalized. Not everything here that is customary is written down. I've been an administrator here for several years. I've been a contributor even longer and have somewhere over 30,000 of my photos hosted here. I am telling you from my personal experience that edits like the one you made are seldom welcomed and often reverted. If you want to continue, I can't stop you. If you keep doing this to my photos, expect to be reverted. You will be wasting both of our time and leaving me with unfavorable feelings toward you. If you keep doing this to other people's photos, don't be surprised when someone else is much unhappier with this than I am. And I'm done discussing this. - Jmabel ! talk 15:20, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
  • 1. So, from the end. Of course, I respect your administrator and contributor experience. But, it's very sad that administrator has no idea whether this particular rule has been formalized. This ought me to leave myself with unfavorable feelings towards such an administrator. Thus, you've treated wikimedia rules as you wish for several years. It could be possible if wikimedia was your personal project. But, unfortunately, it isn't so. So, do me a favour, base your actions and claims upon a formal rules. But, I suppose that you can't do this because of absence of such rules. Am I wrong? Scriber en (talk) 21:00, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Seattle - Ellsworth Storey Cottages 02.jpgEdit

Please don't get me wrong, I was just being puzzled because of that laundry issue. I was not being sarcastic when I proposed to nominate the other one as well, though. I'm a bit surprised that it actually got deleted, but I'm perfectly fine with that. Greetings, --El Grafo (talk) 09:55, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

  • I didn't take it as sarcasm at all. It was an entirely reasonable question. If we hadn't had other decent backup photos, I'd have been opposed to the deletion myself. But, generally, as long as the subject of a photo who doesn't like the photo asks politely, and we have an appropriate replacement, I'll support removing a photo and not unnecessarily antagonizing someone. On the other hand, if they come in threatening lawsuits and acting like I don't have a perfect right to take photos in a public place & publishing them, I'll stand my ground. - Jmabel ! talk 16:35, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Rosh HaAyin and Rosh Ha'ayinEdit

You've left a note on my talkpage regarding the matter we have on the plate and the block, to which I replied straight the next morning. This was 5 days ago. It's possible that you were somehow waiting for a notification that a message is waiting for you, so that you can attend it as normally expected. You may (alternatively) be taking your time. However, conventions suggest that when you're involved - as a dedicated editor and all the more so as Admin - in whichever discussion you'd also stay alert to the possibility that responses are written to your comment(s), not to mention when these concern an editor that is on the wait with little technical way to extend their communication from within their own talkpage and are seeing the days of their unfounded block go by, –and you may there want to act in that light and manifest respect to your own message and to others.

File:Автограф Лубченко Карточка ПРЕСС СЖУ 2001.JPGEdit

hello! excuse me, would you mind looking at this, please? i'd like to know if it is okay to license it like this (every object has it's own tag, it seems). i've got a similar file i am not sure how to attribute correctly, as it consists of a PD-ineligeble one (though copyrighted) and a Cc-by-sa-2.1-jp one plus some text... thank you very much --antanana 04:47, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

  • In my non-expert opinion, assuming you took the photo yourself (since the finger there adds a creative element) the only thing that could imaginably be an issue is that one slightly non-trivial logo. If someone thinks that's above the threshold of eligibility, you could always do a Gaussian blur of the logo. - Jmabel ! talk 16:50, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
    • d'you mean this logo? that's not logo actually, that's our state's coat of arms. PD-UA-exempt (by our law). here is the file in question: uk:Файл:Wikimedia-UA-Baloha-concurs-logo.png. just cannot figure out how to license it right... but it does seem to me, that having just {{CopyrightByWikimedia}} tag is not okay... --antanana 17:06, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Chabad houses vs. synagoguesEdit

Sorry, I was just trying to tidy up categories. I think having "Congregation Shaarei Tefilah-Lubavitch" in the main Chabad category is too specific. I'll make a new category "Chabad synagogues and yeshivot", in which I'll put the 2 links I moved to "Chabad houses". I hope that's OK. April8 (talk) 19:28, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Penyulap 01:35, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Nope, sorry, I'm done talking to Ottava Rima. I don't really care whether he insulted me based because of a refusal to assume good faith on my part, misreading what I said, or what. The point of my remarks was that the change proposed ("active curation" at the level of individual photos) would drive away some good contributors, and I used myself as an example. He chose to read umpteen things into that, and ignored my categorical denials, and even used the AN:U about his conduct to keep insulting me. - Jmabel ! talk 03:19, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, I understand and don't blame you. But I'll keep trying to settle things down, and although you feel bad about it, and rightly so today, I do hope that will fade, I know you can't see the day, but I hope you'll feel different on another day. Everyone has a 'thing' or two about them, and it's not always their fault. I hope later on you can be dismissive of it if nothing else. I best not talk anymore, and let you settle.

You asked me about a picture I categorisedEdit

Hola

He estado tiempo sin conectar, así que no había visto tu pregunta [4]. Preguntabas por cómo sabía que lo mostrado en File:Infoshop.jpg era un local okupado / squat. No conozco el sitio. Supongo que en su día lo categoricé así porque vi la imagen en algún artículo de Wikipedia. Tanto ahora como en el momento de mi edición [5] la imagen se usa en es:Centro social okupado, pero ya no recuerdo si la vi en ese mismo artículo o en algún otro. Salud. --Javier ME (talk) 16:36, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Bastante bién. No importa mucho. Creo que yo estaba allí (en la misma Infoshop) en 1996, y no no era obvio que era una okupa. Debe haber sido un okupa para mucho tiempo para mirar tanto como una tienda de libros tan normal (aunque anarquista). - Jmabel ! talk 19:13, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

File:Walker on portable style of treadmill desk.jpgEdit

This image file was originally tagged as a copyvio from http://drmcbabe.com/product-detail/ on on Mar 17th (likely uploaded by the owner, but has they have never provided evidence through permissions-commons@wikimedia.org). Shortly after being taggeed, someone else changed the tag to a missing permissions tag ... which you then removed today, I am assuming because of the existing tagging in the image file claiming it to be under both the GNU Free Documentation License, and the CC-BY-SA-3.0. Unfortunately, this doesn't appear to resolve the original copyvio issue as I can't find anything on the source page explicitly releasing it, so I've retagged it - as the original uploader doesn't appear to have yet emailed the require evidence of it being released. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 16:46, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

It appears it has been deleted again, although the user has since also uploaded it to File:Walker on portable walking - treadmill desk.jpg.

OK. Deleter didn't indicate that problem at all in the deletion log. And all it had on it at time of deletion was a "no permissions since" tag and a permissions tag, so I just assumed someone had deleted without looking. - Jmabel ! talk 17:29, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

One more favor?Edit

Hi Jmabel. Thanks for the advice earlier this month regarding pUblic domain for photos from the Missouri House of Representatives website. Could I ask one more small favor? Would you take a peek at how I set up the licensing and description for File:RepNateWalker.JPG and/or File:RepCraigRedmon.JPG to make sure I've done it properly enough? I'd hate to upload more licensed in that manner only to have them deleted later. It would be a misuse of my time and more importantly a hassle for the admin that cleans up my mess having to delete them. Tnanks and have a great Wiki kind of day! Sector001 (talk) 22:09, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Convenience links File:RepNateWalker.JPG, File:RepCraigRedmon.JPG - JM
  • Mostly good. Three things:
    • Categories are not just tags. You want to try to use ones that already exist. For example, Category:Missouri Politicians doesn't exist; Category:Politicians of Missouri does. Category:Missouri Republicans doesn't exist; Category:Republicans from Missouri does. You can find these things pretty easily by navigating the hierarchy from a known point such as Category:Missouri.
    • Your note "This photo is public domain and free to use per e-mail from Tim Bonnell, official Missouri House of Representatives photographer. Confirmation e-mail was sent to Wikipedia on 4/22/2013" is probably a bit much. What you really need is {{OTRS pending|year=|month=|day=}}, where you specify the year, month, & day the email was sent, e.g. {{OTRS pending|year=2013|month=04|day=22}}.
    • You probably want to mark the date you gave in the information template as {{upload date|2013-04-22 15:04:50}} instead of just "2013-04-22 15:04:50". It's when you uploaded, not when the picture was taken. - Jmabel ! talk 23:25, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Paint will let you alter the text box, but you do have to know how to use it pretty well. The easiest approach to do this with Paint is probably to remove the text box & completely rebuild it. It may be that you can build that box more easily in some other application (e.g. Word) and then save a screen shot, crop it, and paste it into paint.

And about the meta-categories: I insert images in this type of categories because sometimes is convenient. For example here Category:Graffiti by language. I don't know the language of some of this images or I wait to find other images in the same language so, in the meantime, I put them here because I hope someone would recognise it and create a new specific category. I wish I were comprehensible, my English is not perfect. Thank you to monitoring my edits.--SunOfErat (talk) 13:57, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

re: CosplayEdit

I know that Wikipedia is not a primary source, but you can forgive me if I use en:Cosplay :)

Cosplay [...] is an activity in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea from a work of fiction.

So why can't those people be considered cosplayers? They're wearing costumes of Joker and Batman (although not 100%). --Superchilum(talk to me!) 15:55, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Because we wouldn't normally call marching in a parade "play" or "cosplay" in this sense. I see that en-wiki's article is clear on the term excluding theatrical performance, but I suspect no one writing it thought of this other similar exception. I'll raise the question on the talk page there. - Jmabel ! talk 15:58, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

You deleted Category:Bridges over the North Sasketchewan River...Edit

You deleted Category:Bridges over the North Sasketchewan River in favour of Category:Bridges over the North Saskatchewan River. Isn't it counter-policy to delete long-standing categories, even if someone figures out they were misnamed? The deleting administrator can have no idea how many external sites link to the category under its old name -- correct? So, since deletion can break links and cause chaos, doesn't policy call for a redirection, not deletion? Geo Swan (talk) 07:55, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

  • I believe that what you are describing is the policy for individual images (or other media items), but not for categories. There has been a pretty strong consensus on Commons to remove misspelled categories. When I first became an admin, I wasn't doing that, but I found that other admins always came in behind me and did it, and told me I should have, so I started doing it as well. - Jmabel ! talk 15:55, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
    • I agree, some administrators are extremely aggressive about removing empty categories. Some administrators even take the high-handed step of first emptying all the content from categories they don't like, into newly created categories -- and then deleting the original category, because it was then empty.
My personal opinion is that the category feature, as it exists today, is an unsatisfactory tool for contributors to use for organizing pictures, or articles.
  1. It does not keep track of what elements have been in a category, when they were added or when they were deleted. Hence, an administrator can come across an empty category, that had been full of content until recently emptied by a vandal, kook, or simply by someone overly-hasty.
  2. The current category system provides no mechanism for those who add an element to a category, or remove an element from a category, to leave an explanation for their action in a log associated with the category.
There are other serious weaknesses in using categories for organization. Unfortunately, until the wikimedia software is updated with a superior organization feature that supercedes categories, we are going to have to continue using them. However, I suggest it is absolutely essential that we use them in a discipline manner, to keep the chaos to a minimum. The same arguments apply for not deleting categories, but turning them into redirections as for turning redundant images into redirections.
Another factor deleting adminstrators may be overlooking is attribution. Most categories have no content of their own, beyond metadata, like the pointers to the parent categories. But when a category has even a single sentence of explanatory text, I suggest it has passed the bar and its contents is no longer de minimus, and that content should not be cut and paste into a new replacement category. Doing so violates the creative commons license under which that sentence of explanatory text was contributed.
In my opinion, so long as contributors are using categories to organize content, every category should have at least one sentence of explanatory text. We are using our category system like a database, and, in a properly managed database, there is a database schema -- something that says what goes where. We have no schema now -- instead we rely on guesswork.
categories creep when there is no schema
When I went away to University, several decades ago, I joined a food coop near the University. During the fifteen years I lived in that small college town I held several offices in the food coop, including the guy who met the truck from our central distributor. I'd meet the driver, help unload the shipment, and sign off that we received everything on the shipping list, which, for various reasons, could diverge from our invoice. We kept track of our inventory on a rolodex, one card per item. And it was my job to update the card for each item we received, with an entry that included the date, the amount, and the price.
I shared that rolodex with the treasurer and the purchaser, and with every other coop member who wanted to look up a product that seemed to be out of stock. No one person had responsibility for enforcing the organization scheme those cards were organized.
When I first took on the responsibility of meeting the shipments we mainly received dry bulk items, including raw grains of millet, wheat, barley, and the rolodex had a section for "cereals". If one wanted to be high-falutin, those grains were all cereals. The cereals section also included rolled oats. Well, I went away for a while, and when I returned we were carrying bulk, organic, crunchy granola, which had also been shoehorned into the cereals section. I went away a second time, and when I returned, we had had a buyer who had experimented with buying a range of prepackaged boxes of organic equivalents to cheerios and other similar breakfast foods. These shortlived product lines had been shoehorned into the cereals category. Someone who realized this was a mistake had started a new category entitled "breakfast foods", and someone else had started a new category for "grains and nuts", and had moved all the cards for raw grains of millet, wheat, barley and oats out of the cereal category into grains and nuts.
If you are looking for it, we experience the same kind of chaotic reorganizations here -- they are a complete wast of time, and might be at least partially avoidable if every time someone started a category we expected them to leave at least one sentence of explanatory text describing what should be put in the category, and perhaps what should be left out. Geo Swan (talk) 17:32, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I don't really have an opinion on that, and my talk page is probably not the place to try to hammer out a change in policy. When operating in my capacity as an admin rather than just a contributor, I try to work in accord with what appears to be the prevailing policy, whether formal or informal. As I said, earlier I was not making deletions like this, but it became clear that they would happen anyway in my wake, so I decided I might as well do this myself instead of leaving it for someone else to clean up after me. - Jmabel ! talk 19:12, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I accept at face value that the feedback more experienced administrators gave you may have looked like them educating you about a policy, or a policy-like unwritten consensus, based on meaningful, substantive discussion.
If I were an administrator I too would "work in accord with what appears to be the prevailing policy, whether formal or informal". I suggest this is not what we have in the long tradition of administrators deleting empty categories. I am not aware of any passages in policy that recommend deleting empty categories. More importantly, I have not heard of any meaningful, substantive discussions that ever arrived at a well-thought-out conclusion that empty categories should be deleted rather than redirected. I very strongly suspect that if anyone were to make a concerted attempt to track down discussion that reached those conclusion all they would find would be a series of assertions that we should keep deleting empty categories because we have always deleted empty categories in the past.
If I didn't think the practice of deleting empty categories wasn't a wasteful, chaotic, counter-productive practice, I would let sleeping dogs lie, and ignore it.
I think I have offered strong arguments as to why this practice should be deprecated. I think I have meaningfully challenged your suggestion that it is a policy, even if an informal one. I think your options include restoring the deleted category, and changing it to a redirect; doing nothing, waiting for me to initiate a central discussion, staying neutral there; or waiting for a central discussion, and voicing an opinion there. Geo Swan (talk) 19:46, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
