LiguusEdit

I only placed it in the correct category. It was placed in Liguus, but the genus Liguus comprises a lot of species an subspecies. So I placed it together with the other pictures of this species in the species-category. --Llez (talk) 06:12, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Something in latin sitting on a stump over water.jpg, ooops, my bad. I had just prepped the rename template in case someone from en:wp reference desk/science came over to give it a correct name. They think it should be File:Hylobates lar sitting on a stump over water.jpg. Here is the link. --Canoe1967 (talk) 18:31, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Fixed now. Sorry, the incorrect template setup leapt out at me, I didn't notice that you'd proxied the name. - Jmabel ! talk 20:25, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. The two re-directs can be deleted if they are taking up resources. I resolved the en:wp section that is the only link to them and added a blue link there to the new file.--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:14, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Known bugEdit

Hi Jmabel, in answer at the Commons Help Desk about images not updating, you said that it was a known bug. Any idea how long we have to wait, it's been over a week now since I uploaded a higher res version of File:USGS Balanced Section.png? Thanks, Mikenorton (talk) 23:14, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

  • No, I have on idea. This has been going on for weeks, and if you look through you'll see that something like 15% of questions on the Help desk & Village pump have been effectively the same question. - Jmabel ! talk 15:38, 1 February 2013 (UTC)71666

from many years ago.. now NNS needs helpEdit

Hey Jmabel, I'm Ling.Nut from a billion years ago. I saw your sig when I went to the help Desk; I'm happy to see you active. Alas, I have a request. I have no idea who does what on Commons. A speaker of English as a second language is asking for my help with image licensing issues; the owner of the relevant license-tagging-bot is very long AWOL (very poor form, that). Please forgive the intrusion, but I wonder if you could help User:Krupski Oleg with File:Bonus-Sweden.png..? Thanks and again, apologies... ServiceableVillain (talk) 12:23, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi again ! I am sorry that Ottava upset you, I wrote a note on his talkpage, and I think that if he doesn't change what he said, that you should march yourself over there and poke out your tongue at him thus 8^P and if you get in any trouble, tell them I put you up to it and it was ALL my idea ok? please have a read of the comment I have written there first though. 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. If you want my help with anything, art, whatever, do let me know. Penyulap 03:56, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

You asked me about a picture I categorisedEdit

Hola

He estado tiempo sin conectar, así que no había visto tu pregunta [1]. 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 [2] 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)

Re: Order of categoriesEdit

I know of no mandate regarding category order. My preference is for categories to be in alphabetical order, so I often make changes accordingly. --Another Believer (talk) 14:48, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

    • The term "related" is subjective to me. I wish categories were sorted alphabetically automatically, for all Wikimedia wikis. --Another Believer (talk) 15:13, 1 April 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. I've also added a comment on this at Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests#‎File:Walker on portable style of treadmill desk.jpg --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:02, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
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!

PaintEdit

You said i could use microsoft paint to alter this image. But M paint won't allow me to alter the written text box on the bottom-left. Do you have an alternative? Pass a Method (talk) 09:40, 13 June 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. Sorry I don't have something more concrete, I have done this sort of thing but not often. - Jmabel ! talk 15:27, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Re:Images don't belong directly in a meta-categoryEdit

Actually I thought there were more images of that topic. But then I realized I was wrong. Anyhow I reverted my edits. 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.

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)

In this particular case I just forget to create the category...

Sometimes I do this kind of edit because I wait to find similar files to fill the category. Then I create the category. Or someone could create it because it's in this list: Special:WantedCategories. I don't see why this edit is wrong.

daguerreotype King MongkutEdit

Is the dezoomify version of this image any larger than this.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 07:21, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

The former certainly appears to be higher resolution in terms of number of pixels, but I think the latter is either a better scan of the underlying photo. If you look at them at equal resolution, the latter looks better. Which is to say that the apparent precision of the former exceeds its accuracy. I'd go for the latter (the nara.gov one). - Jmabel ! talk 16:45, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

RfC on the scope of file renaming criterion 2Edit

Pursuant to the closing of the RFC "Proposed overhaul of the "Which files should be renamed?" section", a second RfC has been opened at Commons:Requests for comment/File renaming criterion 2 specifically to address the scope of criterion 2, which currently reads "To change from a completely meaningless name to a name that describes what the image displays." Since you participated in the initial discussion, I am notifying you of the follow-up RfC.

Please note that I fully anticipate that the first few days will see a number of additional options proposed, so it may be a good idea to check back periodically on the RfC.

Thank you. Sven Manguard Wha? 01:43, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Adding an "other photo"Edit

Thank you for your help last week with my question at the help desk. I'd like to crop this photo, and then add it to the Akron, Iowa article. While I've added many "new versions" of photos, I'm not quite sure how or where to add an "other version". There doesn't seem to be a link to that. Any help you can give would be appreciated! Magnolia677 (talk) 14:18, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

That's what I don't understand. I did some editing to the TIF file, and now I want to add it as an "other photo". To get the new edited photo onto the Commons server, I need to upload it as a new file. This means adding all the information about it, such as the date and photographer. Essentially, this creates an entirely new photo file. This isn't like adding a "new version", where the new photo gets merged into the existing photo file. But this is what I'm trying to do. I see this done with Library of Congress photos all the time. I'm not sure I explained my concern, but if I'm going to add a new photo, with all new information, why don't I just use that one (which creates two unique photo files, containing identical photo information, but two versions of the same photo, one edited and one raw)? I hope you can figure out my concern. Thanks again. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:03, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Assuming that by "that one" you mean "the 'upload new version' button", once you add it as a "new version" of the photo (rather than a separately loaded "other version"), (1) the old version is no longer accessible for inclusion in articles and (2) there is no way to give any different information in the description (e.g. "cropped by..."). - Jmabel ! talk 01:35, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Hey Joe, I noticed you put up some pictures of UW Bothell campus from 2009. I'm looking for any images of a glacial erratic that was there, where the ballfields are now.

Any other contributions to the draft are also welcome, of course. We have a parallel one going for Sno County as well. -- Brianhe (talk) 17:07, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Local Wedgwood historian Valarie Bunn might have mentioned it some time; it's not that big (smaller than a car), so it's not quite into the range where it's likely to have been much written about. - Jmabel ! talk 18:55, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Por favor No quiero que BORREN las imágenesEdit

Es enserio quiero las imágenes para el proyecto que estoy realizando, por favor no quiero que las BORREN, por favor, necesito estas imágenes. Ó díganme ¿Cómo puedo conservarlas? ¿hay alguna manera de que pudiera conservar las imágenes?, éstas imágenes son fotos antiguas e históricas y es por eso que quiero conservarlas CDGJ965commons (talk) 23:00, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Léese Commons:Alcance del proyecto. Para retenerlos como en el dominio público Vd. necesita mostrar que los imágenes son libre de restricciones de copyright. Véase Commons:Copyright_rules_by_territory/Mexico (yo no sé donde hay un sumario similar en español, pero nada allí es especifica a Commons). ¿Son anónimas las obras? Si son, y si son de 1965 o más temprano, son en el dominio público. Si no, no son, porque no puede h pasado un siglo desde la muerte del fotógrafo. La responsabilidad recae sobre Vd. para demostrar la fuente original, y que son anónimas. La única otra posibilidad para retenerlos, que en estan instancia no me parece posible, es obtener un licensia apropriada desde el dueño de los derechos de copyright.

Run CommonsDelinker?Edit

I just happened on Commons:Categories for discussion/2014/05/Category:American craftsman style in the United States, which apparently nobody's touched since you left a question for me in September. Could you get CommonsDelinker to change the categories? I'd be happy to move the categories themselves, but the contents need a bot, because we have twelve categories that will be moved, meaning hundreds and hundreds of images; just one of them has more than 200 files.

Hi Jmabel, I've taken the liberty to crop away the bystander. Hope that's o.k. for you. --Túrelio (talk) 06:53, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

  • That really should be uploaded to a separate name. I'll do that. It's a photo from the Municipal Archive and much like anything else from an official source, we should preserve the original. (I also think that just as a photo the original is a better composition, although your crop is probably a better illustration for the article on Clark.) - Jmabel ! talk 14:58, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Ticket no.Edit

Hi!Jmabel.I sad to say that I can't remember the first two ticket no. I received because I deleted the confirmation of receipt together with the ticket no. in the subject. But first, I sent a message to OTRS twice.That is why I sent a message for a third time and finally I received another ticket no., which is [Ticket#2015050310002357] — Preceding unsigned comment added by RenRen070193 (talk • contribs)

6x6 againEdit

Thanks for your answer at help desk, but I'm still a bit up in the air. The problem seems to be with the first two, Kyarra and St Ives. When I click on them, I get a blank screen, instead of the large image. What problem did you see with the last two?

  1. File:(1)Kyarra_Hunters_Hill.jpg
  2. File:(1)St_Ives_Hunters_Hill.jpg
  3. File:(1)Vailele_in_Hunters_Hill_(1892).jpg
  4. File:(1)Waiwera_in_Hunters_Hill.jpg

Sardaka (talk) 07:50, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

The first two appear roughly square (1,133 × 1,024 pixels and 1,021 × 1,024 pixels, respectively). They look fine.
File:(1)Vailele_in_Hunters_Hill_(1892).jpg is 1,280 × 859 pixels. If this started out square, then part of it was lost.
Similarly, File:(1)Waiwera_in_Hunters_Hill.jpg is 601 × 1,024 pixels. If this started out square, then part of it was lost.
Have you cleared your cache? If you are getting a blank screen, I can't think of any other reason. - Jmabel ! talk 15:15, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Late July meetup to revitalize & prioritize WikiProject SeattleEdit

Joe, hi, I wanted to ping you about a suitable date, time, & place for a late July meetup to revitalize & prioritize WikiProject Seattle. I will be away for Wikimania 2015 & returning late on Monday, 7/20. Evenings that I am available are Wed 7/22, Thu 7/23, Mon 7/27, Wed 7/29, & Thu 7/30. I am unavailable Tuesday evenings. What evening would work best for you? I would like to meet for 2½ to 3 hours, so we could get some editing done. I also will leave it to you to suggest a suitable place. I do not know where you will be coming from, but as I am generally off work in Bothell by 4pm, I can pretty much get anywhere in the Seattle area by 6pm or so.

Heads-upEdit

Hi, as an active colleague on upload projects, I thought I'd drop you a personal heads-up for my request for adminship, today being the last day for views.

Hi Joe, I didn't notice this safe in the museum; where does it stand there? You wouldn't have a sharper image; the duilian is hardly readable. SebastianHelm (talk) 18:41, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

I need an advice.Edit

Hello, Jmabel!
I want to ask you two questions, if you have time to answer them.
I want to erase some works of my own, some are useless, some have uncertain sources(sources exist, but when i got to primary source, it was a dead end) and are used in community, regardless of this, and it is a bad thing.
If you can give me a code, or a page where i can post them to be erased i would be very happy. There is such page or code?
And if i uploaded versions, can i erase some of them, to to not fill commons with surplus data?
Viuser (talk) 18:08, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Once you've uploaded a photo and granted a license, you can't revoke that (unless these are very recent, accidental uploads). You can, however, nominate them for deletion just like anyone else's photos. There should be a "nominate for deletion" link on every file page. (If you can't find that, there is a procedure explained at Commons:Deletion requests, but it's more complicated than using the button.) When you do so, explain that you were the uploader.
  • Removing files or versions from public display does not save Commons any space: they are permanently on our servers. The only difference is whether they are publicly visible. - Jmabel ! talk 18:59, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jmabel, help me, my Category problemEdit

Hello, Jmabel! Please help me, the Category does not include the uploaded images; Yesterday, almost all my uploaded images were fixed and the Categories included my images after some hours; but now, I have upladed many images, but not even 1 has been put into the categories: Category:Santo Cristo Parish Church (Cupang, Balanga City, Bataan); Category:Cupang North, Cupang Proper, Cupang West and Central, Balanga City, Bataan ; Category:Cataning, Balanga City, Bataan; Category:Poblacion, Balanga City, Bataan; Category:Bagumbayan, Balanga City, Bataan, even if I use this debug in uploading; please help me, thanks and best regards --Judgefloro (talk) --Judgefloro 16:37, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Again: they are in the categories. If you click on the file page for the image, you will see the categories correctly listed. The problem is strictly with the display of the categories, it's some sort of caching issue, and I presume it will be fixed sooner or later.

Romanian FOPEdit

One night, in 2009, I uploaded several dozen images from Romania, unaware of FOP. Like many contributors I find FOP counter-intuitive.

When one of them was nominated for deletion, and someone tried to explain Romanian FOP to me, I put those images into a list: User:Geo Swan/Romanian buildings. I think some of them don't measure up to the Romanian FOP restrictions, while others are OK. I link to the list every time one of the images is nominated for deletion. Geo Swan (talk) 14:35, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Quite a few of those (e.g. File:A Bucuresti street scene -c.jpg should be no problem. The emphasis is clearly on Biserica Nașterea Maicii Domnului; the modern building is just inevitable background. I guess is someone had an issue with it, it could be cropped. On the other hand, I hope you won't take offense that File:Bucuresti flats -c -- Victoriei Square, Bucharest, Romania.jpg almost certainly should be deleted.
I guess I'll run through the list at some point and see what I'm pretty sure should be deleted. I'm not really going after, say, 1920s buildings that might be in copyright, just stuff 1950 and later that almost certainly is. Thanks for pointing these out. - Jmabel ! talk 17:37, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
I took a pass through and nominated the ones that looked most problematic to me. I guess we should see how those go. If some of those are deemed OK, then the others should be safe. Some of these are certainly OK: for example, the Filaret bus station is a former train station and goes back to the 19th century. - Jmabel ! talk 18:07, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi,

Yes it looks strange. When I check/edit : I simply do not know what I have done and how to change it. I wanted to add category for discusion. If you can change it please do it. I do not want to spoil other requests. TIA --Adam majewski (talk) 22:24, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Now I know what I have done wrong : I did it manually, but I should put template on category page . Thx for help. --Adam majewski (talk) 16:18, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

VFC?Edit

It would be good if you used COM:VFC for DRs like this one: File:Bucharest Day 4 - AFI Cotroceni (9434231871).jpg -- much faster for you and three times faster for the closing Admin. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:36, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Ah. I've never used VFC for DRs, just for making mass changes (e.g. category moves). When you say "DRs like this one" (emphasis mine), what would characterize DRs where VFC is in order rather than the "Nominate for deletion" tool in the left nav? - Jmabel ! talk 16:39, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
    • Well, use your judgement -- I know that sometimes I'll be working along and I'll nominate one, then two, then three.... of a user's images before I realized that it was going to be more than one, so not those. But, if the user looks hinky, then I'd guess that copying the user name to the clipboard and pasting it into VFC probably takes as long as doing two nominations using the left column -- and that only if you've copied the DR comment to the clipboard so you don't have to type it twice. VFC gives you some of the information you need to add an image to a DR, so sometimes you can just click on the ones you want to DR without loading them, but you can also easily load them from VFC to look more closely. So for me, as soon as realize that the user looks like a problem, I'll go to VFC -- but you'll develop your own rhythm with it.
    • For the closing Admin using DelReqHandler, closing a single image DR takes (A) a click on "Delete (the image)", the an Enter to accept the default closing comment, and then (B) a click on Close Deleted, entry of a comment, and another Enter. Combining two or more with VFC allows you to do part B for the whole batch only once.
    • BTW, although I don't think you close many DRs, if you ever switch to that mode, note that Admins can also use VFC to delete images. That's helpful if the DR has many images -- 50 or more -- from the same user. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:27, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
      • Ah, I see, you are assuming these were from a single user or constituted a large part of a single category. They might have been, but I ran across them one-by-one when going through a couple of thousand images in Category:Bucharest. Since they we scattered through there, VFC would not have been at all easy to use (would have had to let all of them load, go through and identify the ones at issue again, instead of just clicking through from the category page as I noticed these in and among other stuff). - Jmabel ! talk 00:36, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Copyvios post "final warning"Edit

You might want to have a look at User talk:Deepakhmwiki. - Brianhe (talk) 22:04, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

  • @Denniss: You gave the warning; is there followup you want to do here? - Jmabel ! talk 22:08, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
I can't see new copyvios uploaded by this user. --Denniss (talk) 23:11, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
  • OK. @Brianhe:, is there something in particular you have in mind here? - Jmabel ! talk 23:13, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
  • The several copyvio corporate logos, mainly. -- Brianhe (talk) 09:33, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
    • Unless I'm mistaken (I looked on the 20th, and so did Denniss) they were all older uploads. The issue is if the user uploads new copyvios, not whether we determine that some additional older uploads were copyvios. Also, uploading something like a logo could be an entirely innocent mistake; the issue was passing off others' work as their own. - Jmabel ! talk 16:39, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

ANUEdit

I saw your Ping on Fae's page but I won't respond there because Fae doesn't wish it. I agree you "included the possibility" of carelessness in your expanded explanation. But it wasn't in your initial comment that accused me of using "apophasis". I gave you, per Hanlon's razor, the benefit of the doubt in assuming you misunderstood the term, and meant something different that didn't require such a huge dollop of bad faith on your part. But your laboured expansion of your usage of that word made it quite clear you believed I was (to quote our favourite encyclopaedia), making a "subversive ad hominem attack". All these terrible crimes you expanded upon in words of absolute confidence, whereas the remote possibility that I was acting in good faith, if insensitively, was left as a questioned and unlikely option. Honestly, if you really still believe I was conducting a nasty homophobic attack on another editor, then I don't see how "knock it off" should rescue me. I don't think such an editor should be shown any tolerance on this project so just press the block button if that's your solid and confident assessment. But I rather hope that you now regret your bad faith comments and naivety in being swept up in Fae's ridiculous accusations. I have apologised for my misjudgement in the matter and that should be the end of it. -- Colin (talk) 19:57, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

  • I agree that should be the end of it. - Jmabel ! talk 23:29, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Regarding my close (that Fae questioned on my talk) I hope you don't mind my squashing that. There could be legitimate complaints about Colin's 'method of argumentation', but I really don't think the particular comment was illustrative of any 'raging homophobia' on his part... it was instead just a particular example of his debating style (which is, itself, IMO questionable, but a conversation about it based on the premise given by Fae was rather obviously not going anywhere useful). Colin rather specifically doesn't use actual 'ad hominem attacks', from what I have seen... he uses a rhetorical method that stays short of that, by stating his 'disappointment', etc... it's basically a method of ad hominem argument, while not actually being an attack. Any complaint about Colin should not be based on a particular comment (as any such block would be short and inherently punitive), but on his general level of discourse, and I would expect to see a 'very' broad consensus before he was blocked, because it would really be more of a 'cultural' thing.

Ballard Locks categoriesEdit

I've started uploading photos to Category:Hiram M. Chittenden Locks large lock maintenance 2015. I think I'll put the pump well photos in a subcategory under Category:Hiram M. Chittenden Locks Administration Building. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 18:06, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Agreed. By the way, would you rather be identified or not in pictures where you appear prominently? Fine to go whichever way you prefer on ones where I may appear. - Jmabel ! talk 18:53, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
    • I don't mind if you identify me. How about you? --Dennis Bratland (talk) 19:05, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
      • As I said, it's fine to go whichever way you prefer on ones where I may appear. - Jmabel ! talk 19:08, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
        • I'm under the weather today and having trouble concentrating. :\ I'll probably put off uploading most of my photos since it takes a while to figure out the correct title and description of each one. I just added a link to the bottom of w:Ballard Locks that had some detailed terminology on the Stoney Gate valves and their plans for hydraulic replacement. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 19:22, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
        • Sure. I'm still going through mine, making panos as appropriate, etc., haven't even started uploading. I really don't have a lot of technical knowledge about the locks, and you may want to go through some of mine once I'm done and improve descriptions, since it looks like you are going pretty deeply into the topic. - Jmabel ! talk 19:43, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm finished uploading, describing, etc. Feel free to supplement descriptions (and add further categories) on anything I did if you have more specific technical knowledge. - Jmabel ! talk 07:27, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm starting to upload these. I have a few hundred and I will probably try to avoid duplicating yours. I just uploaded a set from when I climbed to the bottom of the pump well. Here is one of you. I think our photos are at least as good as the Seattle Times got. Their culvert photo has camera shake. They were lucky they got to see the top of a Stoney Gate being worked on, but they didn't go in the pump well. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 20:57, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

PeopleEdit

If there's any policy, it's one of the most obscure policies around here. See my edit summary here, but aside from Ohio, everything's so fractured that I would demand a link to policy before believing anyone who said that there was such a policy. For example, while we have almost everything as "from" in Ohio, Category:People of Pennsylvania by city and Category:People of Pennsylvania by county are almost (but not entirely) "of".

Weird licensingEdit

Joe, regarding File:USMC-05313.jpg. This looks like a family snapshot but is licensed as PD-DOD, which seems unlikely. The source link given by the uploader doesn't work. The uploader happens to be a bot that I'm not familiar with. Thought you might want to have a look at it. - Brianhe.public (talk) 01:19, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Feel more than free to nominate it for deletion on that basis, or to contact User:Slick, who owns the bot. I would add that the Internet Archive has no record of that URL having existed. - Jmabel ! talk 06:56, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes this image was imported from the given source with a bot. At this moment the image was published under PD-DOD. The source page was changed later, so the original source is no more accessible. If you think that this image is wrong, suggest it for deletion (please refer to this comment), but in the moment of the import all was fine and official published by DoD (and the bot did not check the content of the image). Maybe there are more affected images like this, see Category:Import by User:Slick-o-bot/Marines.mil images --Slick (talk) 08:34, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Looks like the DOD probably got that wrong, and no particular reason to think they owned the rights they granted. - Jmabel ! talk 01:08, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

  • I'm missing context here. I don't remember ever asking to use your picture, and I'm certainly not currently using it. Perhaps this relates to someone else's query on the Help desk or Village pump, where I answer a lot of the questions. (Ich vermisse Kontext hier. Ich glaube nicht daran erinnern, jemals zu fragen, um Ihr Bild zu benutzen, und ich bin sicher nicht gerade benutzen. Vielleicht bezieht sich auf Abfrage die jemand anderes im Helpdesk oder Dorfpumpe, wo ich beantworten viele der Fragen.) - Jmabel ! talk 17:36, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Industrial laundriesEdit

I don't think I had any other options:

  • You're probably right about it being a dry-cleaning place, but dry cleaning isn't something that would have come to mind
  • The description for Category:Laundromat read "Laundromats, launderettes or laundrettes are commercial laundries where the customer can operate the machines". So-and-so Cleaners doesn't sound like a place with customer-operated machines.
  • Category:Laundries was created in 2011, and Category:Laundries in the United States just last year.

I'm not seeing any other laundry-related categories that would be applicable to buildings, except for stuff created after I uploaded it with Category:Industrial laundry. Thanks for letting me know, as I'll fix it, but I don't think I could have done any better in 2009. Nyttend (talk) 01:54, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Usually a bot fills that in, but I do not know how often it is run. If one is filled and the other empty the bot migrates it to fill the field. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:11, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

    • Well, I've seen instances where you can get histories of articles and categories, and instance where you can, even without restoration. I just looked up my history from that time, and I don't even see my name attached to either category. As for restoring this, don't even bother. ----DanTD (talk) 13:33, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

File:White Genocide Illustrated.pngEdit

Would you have a look at File:White Genocide Illustrated.png? I suspect that it is not original work and may be a copyright violation as it may have been created without credit by combining graphics from this source: Diversity Explosion: How New Racial Demographics are Remaking America - William H. Frey - Google Books.

I also object to the name of the file, which I do not believe represents the data in the graphic. Ipso facto from the data, it is absurd to conclude that anyone is actually carrying out genocide against whites.

Peaceray (talk) 06:27, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Quite possibly nothing copyrightable there: it may be all so simple as to be ineligible. But if all the colors are straight from the book, then it could possibly be problematic. And I certainly agree about the contentious name. Is there any reason you wrote to me rather than nominate it for deletion? - Jmabel ! talk 14:21, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Code issues in User:Jmabel/common.jsEdit

Hi Jmabel, 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:Jmabel/common.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 1 new jshint issue -- 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 96: Script URL. - Evidence: addPortletLink('p-tb', 'javascript:{importScript(\'MediaWiki:VisualFileChange.js\'); void(0);}', "Perform batch task", 't-AjaxQuickDeleteOnDemand', null); // [[MediaWiki:VisualFileChange.js]]

Just wanted to say thanks for setting up all these categories. I think they'll be really helpful. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:12, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

  • You're welcome. I got tired of the hodgepodge and especially of the nonsense of extant buildings often being classified hierarchically as "former buildings" just because they were (for example) former post offices. - Jmabel ! talk 04:14, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Advice?Edit

Hi, Jmabel. I wonder if you would mind sending me an email. There's something I'd like your advice on. I'm not able to use the email function (something about Yahoo! emails not working with it), but I can reply if you send one. Thanks in advance. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:37, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

  • You don't have "email this user" on your user page, so I can't do that. I'm guessing you have to add your email address to your preferences, or some such. You can find my email address elsewhere online easily enough, but I have no problem stating it here: jmabel AT speakeasy DOT org. - Jmabel ! talk 15:11, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you...Edit

... for re-categorizing some of my recent Georgetown uploads (Category:2016 photographs of Seattle by Another Believer). Much appreciated! -Another Believer (talk) 00:06, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Image File: Hierarchy of EffectsEdit

While I created the image, using Word and Photoshop, it is based on ideas taken from the cited source. On review, and after re-reading the original article from 1961, it is clear that the diagram is similar, but not identical to a diagram used in the article. I think that the safest route would be to withdraw my request to reinstate the image. Thank-you for trying. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BronHiggs (talk • contribs) 06:25, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Incorrect government photo permissionsEdit

Joe, as far as I know all government employee photographs should be public domain. However it appears that the Vienna Embassy photos on Flickr are all tagged "no derivatives". I wanted to pull one from this album but the flickr2commons tool won't do it, probably because of this. Any idea why they are doing this, and do we maybe have a formal way of requesting that they re-tag their albums? - Brianhe (talk) 20:18, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

P.s. I went ahead and uploaded File:Wesner Zeitlhofer and Gürtler.jpg with the PD-DOS tag. But it would still be nice to alert the embassy that their Flickr uploads are incorrectly tagged. - Brianhe (talk) 20:35, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
@Brianhe: They are PD if they are taken by a government employee in the performance of his or her duties. It's not absolutely clear to me that is the case; for example, what if the photo was taken by a volunteer? You might want to contact them and ask for that to be clarified. - Jmabel ! talk 21:09, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
I can do that, then send in the official response for OTRS documentation, I suppose. It seems unlikely the whole photostream is on somebody's off time though. Brianhe (talk) 00:37, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
Agree, but any individual photo could be. - Jmabel ! talk 00:41, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

A consultation regarding Podkarpackie Voivodeship or Subcarpathian VoivodeshipEdit

Since you are an administrator with very extensive experience at Commons and have created, three days ago, Category:Historical Park Blizna, I would like to consult with you regarding the subject mentioned in the above header.

As a result of the August 2011 Wikipedia discussion at en:Talk:Podkarpackie Voivodeship#Requested move, a decision was made to move the main title header "Subcarpathian Voivodeship" to "Podkarpackie Voivodeship".

On Commons, however, the main title header is still the Polish form, Województwo podkarpackie (created 7 January 2009 as Podkarpackie, and moved on 24 April 2014 to Województwo podkarpackie), with Subcarpathian Voivodeship (created 4 January 2009) redirecting to it and Podkarpackie Voivodeship remaining as a redlink.

I just moved Category:Blizna (województwo podkarpackie) to Category:Blizna (Podkarpackie Voivodeship) and adjusted that category within two files (File:Blizna Church.JPG and File:PL-PK Blizna, przydrożna kapliczka 2014-06-21--19-11-50-047 cr.jpg) as well as within the category that you created, (Category:Historical Park Blizna).

As a result of these adjustments, however, your creation, Category:Historical Park Blizna, is now in two categories with competing voivodeship names, Category:Blizna (Podkarpackie Voivodeship) and Category:Museums in Subcarpathian Voivodeship.

Furthermore, Category:Subcarpathian Voivodeship has 30 subcategories, all of which contain the term "Subcarpathian", a term that also appears in a substantial number of files.

Thus, before embarking on any further changes which would have to be fairly extensive, I would like to consult with you whether it would be best to leave well enough alone and move Category:Blizna (Podkarpackie Voivodeship) to Category:Blizna (Subcarpathian Voivodeship) as well as adjust the categories to that form in your creation and the two files, or whether to start numerous moves to bring the name "Subcarpathian" in compliance/harmony with the form used in Wikipedia, "Podkarpackie".

Finally, it should be noted that there are numerous other such inconsistencies: for example, all 25 subcategories in Category:Churches in Subcarpathian Voivodeship by powiat use the Polish form instead of the form which appears in English Wikipedia's main title header. To use the first of these subcategories (Category:Churches in powiat bieszczadzki) as an example, "powiat bieszczadzki" in English Wikipedia is en:Bieszczady County.
Roman Spinner (talk) 21:06, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

@Roman Spinner: I personally would go with "Subcarpathian Voivodeship". Both Subcarpathian and Voivodeship are English words well understood by any English-speaker with an interest in the region. Similarly, unless there is a strong reason not to consider a powiat a "county", I'd go with the English there as well. (By "strong reason" I mean something like that we don't translate the Spanish comarca as "county" even though they are largely analogous, because they Spanish has a distinct word condado that specifically refers to an area historically ruled by a count, and so "county" for comarca is definitely not appropriate.) Certainly we use "county" for the Romanian judeţ.
I have very little Polish, so I can't really judge the Polish-language issues here, but certainly Commons policy is for category names to use any common English words when they exist. - Jmabel ! talk 22:17, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
My appreciation for your advice and, since I am wary of Commons forms differing from those existing on Wikipedia, I will solicit additional input at en:Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Poland. The consensus at en:Talk:Podkarpackie Voivodeship#Requested move was not unanimous and the participation was relatively small, but the form has remained in place since then. The Polish county names at Commons will also need to be moved per your suggestion.
