Hello, Joostik!

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File:Ordensland-1410.svgEdit

Hallo Joostik, I have noticed that the position of Koningsbergen (Königsberg) is not correct. It should be a bit more West at the mouth of the River Pregel. Otherwise the map is fine!

teh wrong "mal'ta venus"Edit

the picture is not showing the "Venus of Mal'ta", but maybe a venusfigurine from Gagarino (Russia). Evidence: Henri Delporte (1979), L’image de la femme dans l‘art préhistorique. Page 114 (left side) See also: http://donsmaps.com/gagarino.html. Wikipedia must avoid to "copy and paste" the mistakes from authors.

thank you for your agreement. but the file still existe and is used by many wikis. how can we rename/delete this pic? Mr. bobby (talk) 17:04, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

On the top of the page click on "more" then on "move". You can then make a request to rename the picture. Please provide a good source and accurate name. I haven't tried it yet but I guess all the links will automatically be corrected by a bot. Success! --Joostik (talk) 13:12, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Pre-Columbian projectile pointsEdit

Hi Joostik. I see you have been categorising projectile point cats. I notice that Category:Pre-Columbian North American projectile points is currently a subcategory of Category:Flint arrowheads, which results in non-flint projectile points being incorrectly categorised as flint. There is definitely at least one quartz artefact there, and if Mesoamerican projectile points end up being categorised under North America, this will result in a large number of obsidian items being categorised as flint. I haven't done anything with the cats myself since I don't want to jump into the middle of whatever reorganisationy you may be doing, but the artefact material may be better set out as a parallel/overlapping category tree. Best regards, Simon Burchell (talk) 11:54, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello;
To be honest I wasn't too happy with the category Flint arrowheads. First off, it should be Flint projectile points as arrowheads isn't a valid archeological term (it's impossible to make a clear distinction between arrowheads and spearpoints). Also, for many pictures a reliable determination of the material is impossible. I agree, however, that the current situation is unsatisfactory. Maybe it's best to make them parallel categories. Yours, Joostik (talk) 16:53, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
OK, I'll go ahead and move flint arrowheads to flint projectile points, under projectile points be material, and we'll see where we go from there. All the best, Simon Burchell (talk) 10:59, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Why?Edit

I don't know the delete a City gate is a building and a architectural element, or not? Are you a architect?--Threecharlie (talk) 14:26, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Quote: "English: Architectural elements are the unique details and component parts that together, form the architectural style of houses, buildings and structures." So no, it isn't. Joostik (talk) 15:38, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
And I understand, a church tower (or church bell tower) is a building but a portal no, I think don't.--Threecharlie (talk) 14:28, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Okay, that one is debatable. If you want to you can change it back. Joostik (talk) 15:38, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks.--Threecharlie (talk) 18:26, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

WelcomeEdit

Hello Joostik,
Welcome in wikicommons. I often see your contributions recently.
If I may, I have some small recommandations to make:

Best regards Liné1 (talk) 20:48, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

You are right; my excuse was that there were so many of those uncategorized species that I was a bit hasty. Actually it might have been just as easy... Greetings, --Joostik (talk) 20:52, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks.
I am slowly working on those.
When you create a species cat, you should move all the pictures in the species cat. If they are also in the genus category, I will still have to do the work ;-)
What source do you follow to know if the species exists ?
Cheers Liné1 (talk) 20:55, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Removing my tagsEdit

Hello Joostik, you recently removed the tag "Kirche in Brandenburg" from some of my pictures (for example this one: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dorfkirche_Brodowin_aussen_03.jpg). I live around Brandenburg and collect pictures of churches in this region and I think it makes sense to give them an overall tag like this. So I kindly ask you to explain why this tag should be removed? Especially as there are many similar tags in Wikimedia commons, for example "Kirchen in Münster" or "Kirchenburgen in Baden-Württemberg" ... ?

See Commons:Categories#Over-categorization : "Over-categorization is when a file, category or other page is placed in several levels of the same branch in the category tree. The general rule is always place an image in the most specific categories, and not in the levels above those." Unfortunately, this rule is very often ignored, making the upper-level categories unworkably bloated. Choose the most specific category, in this case "Category:Dorfkirche Brodowin", which is already a subcategory of "Category:Kirche in Brandenburg", and that's it. No need to add "Category:Church" or "Category:Building in Germany" or such. --Joostik (talk) 15:45, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation -- Dreirik (talk) 14:25, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

CavatesEdit

Cavates is the standard archaeological term for a natural or artificial cave used as a dwelling place. Please don't remove this classification. Thanks, --Pete Tillman (talk) 19:17, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Well, maybe in America it is. Remarkably few items though in that category. Gives the impression that maybe it isn't that common a term. Anyway, I won't bother with it anymore. --Joostik (talk) 14:20, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
SW-US archaeological term, from the Spanish. I learned it in New Mexico, especially around Bandelier Nat Mon, which is likely where you saw the WP examples. Cheers, --Pete Tillman (talk) 20:01, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

Category removalsEdit

Hi,

thank you for trying to provide help, but I mostly disagree with your category removals and some of the moves are even erronous:

  1. Moving from Category:Unidentified railroads in the Czech Republic to Category:Rail transport in Moravian-Silesian Region - could by in both cats. Still we have cats of railroads in the Czech Republic and since I had no time for the identification, we can leave it in that cat.
  2. Moving from Category:Works of Jaroslava Lukešová to Category:Jaroslava Lukešová -> the file should be in the category of what its dislaying. In this case its not displaying Jaroslava Lukešová, but her work. Such categories are common on Commons.
  3. Moving from Category:Slezská Harta to Category:Slezská Harta Reservoir -> This is completly erronous! Pictures are of Slezská Harta village, the reservoir is somewhere else. There are even two different articles in wp

--Juandev (talk) 09:16, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello,

  • The first category you mentioned did not exist, plus the location of the pictures was clearly indicated.
  • The second category did not exist either; as with many artists all her other works were in her personal category. You can of course create a new category yourself, if you wish, and transfer all the files.
  • The third example I may agree with. However, Category:Slezská Harta was previously deleted with the comment "(Incorrect name: now Category:Slezská Harta Reservoir)". I guess the person who who deleted it was in error. Anyway, I corrected that one.

Yours, --Joostik (talk) 09:27, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

  1. Nonexistent category on Commons is not the problem. Thats why is a collaborative project and you can create it. Sure the place is indicated by geoologaction, but category system here has a function to sort the pictures out. When youll be looking for pictures on Wikipedia for a specific railroad, youll be looking in a specific category. I am not saying your moves are completly nonsense, but if you want to help it would be better to create those cats. Note also, that these images are from Wikixpedition, where we created thousands of images. Now we are in process of upload and than well be placing them to wp and sorting them on commons, so this activity gives us more activity. So could you create those categories instead of moving it outside.
  2. The second category did not exist either; --> and why you havent created the category? || as with many artists all her other works were in her personal category --> this is not the argument. Wikimedia projects are in continuous creation. || You can of course create a new category yourself --> As I wrote you above: it is planned. But let me give the answer back, why you havent created the category yourself?
  3. There is other explanation. The person might not be incorrect if the images in that cat where of Slezská Harta Reservoir. Moreover, the cat name you moved it second time is discutable.

--Juandev (talk) 09:02, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

More examplesEdit

  1. Moving from Category:Olomoucká (Dvorce (Bruntál District)) to Category:Olomoucká (Bruntál District) --> this does not make much sense to the system we have for streets. There are two types of categories which fits here: cat:Street (municipality), cat:Streets of this name in the Czech republic. So the creation of cats like cat:Street (district) could be, but my question is, why you havent created the previous category?--Juandev (talk) 09:02, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Category:Belogorsky district of CrimeaEdit

You have moved the category, but you haven't clean up after this movement. It can't be done by bots. Fix it, please. Wieralee (talk) 10:16, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

The problem was with Category:Protected areas of Belogorsky district of Crimea which had a template which had to be changed. Figured it out and fixed. --Joostik (talk) 11:12, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Category:1954 Farnborough AirshowEdit

What's the reasoning behind adding Category:Airfields in the United Kingdom and Category:Farnborough Aerodrome to the files already categorised in Category:1954 Farnborough Airshow, ref. [1]? - 4ing (talk) 21:50, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

You are right -- I wasn't paying proper attention. I think I corrected it now.--Joostik (talk) 23:27, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Category:Celtic crosses in LatviaEdit

Hello! I've spotted that you recently created the category Celtic crosses in Latvia. Most of the categorized images are in fact Sun crosses, inherited from the Swedish times, so they will be moved to a different category. The difference is in the position of the ring. Nonetheless there are some uncategorized images of the very few Celtic crosses in Latvia, so the category is just as useful. Thanks! --AgrisR (talk) 20:02, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, that's a distinction I didnt know. --Joostik (talk) 22:01, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

BruniquelEdit

Attention there are 3 distinct sites for prehistory in Bruniquel. The elements you have tried to classify do not relate to it. If you have a doubt asks before you go to the authors.

Natural heritage sites in Ukraine by raion categoriesEdit

Dear Joostik, why did you destroy Category:Natural heritage sites in Ternopil Oblast by raion and Category:Natural heritage sites in Vinnytsia Oblast by raion? Had any discussion taken place before taking that action? --Djadjko (talk) 22:18, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Because its a useless layer which does not add anything. In fact it encourages people to put categories in two upper categories, which isnt desirable. In short, they only make things messier, and all the natural heritag site categories in Ukraine are already a big mess anyway. Of course, if you want to restore them I won't stop you. --Joostik (talk) 08:43, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply.
I don't fully understand what you mean by "it encourages people to put categories in two upper categories", but I admit it forms a somewhat too deep structure (e. g.: "Nature reserve X" ← "Natural heritage sites in Y Raion" ← "Natural heritage sites in N Oblast by raion" ← "Natural heritage sites in N Oblast").
Regarding the messy Ukrainian natural heritage site categories, feel free to visit Ukrainian Wiki Loves Earth talk page: we're trying to sort the things out, and it can benefit from your findings. --Djadjko (talk) 03:24, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Category:Nevers maiolicaEdit

Hi Joostik, I don't understand why you took of pictures from Category:Nevers maiolica to Category:Faience of Nevers. Nevres maiolica is real, see for example https://craham.hypotheses.org/249 (it's in French) Sincerely yours. --Faqscl (talk) 17:28, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Because they are the same. --Joostik (talk) 17:30, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer, but obviously all faience of Nevers are not Nevers maiolica so they are not the same. I still don't understand...--Faqscl (talk) 17:37, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
The problem is that the terms maiolica and faience are used differently in different countries. Sometimes they do make a difference, sometimes they are used interchangeable. Whats called faience in one place is maiolica in another. When they come from the same factory it would be difficult to make a distinction. --Joostik (talk) 17:51, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
In France (where I live), there is a distinction between Majolica and Faience, for instance in the Louvre museum in Paris.--Faqscl (talk) 19:09, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
If you want to change it back then go ahead. Problem is that it is as good as impossible to make such a distinction on the basis of these photographs. We dont know who made the distinction in the first place. We only know that they are from the same factory, and as far as can be told roughly from the same period. Did they really change the production? It is a pretty technical distinction which is hard to make, but that goes for the entire category maiolica vs. faience. --Joostik (talk) 08:18, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your proposal, I will change it back. Have a good day !--Faqscl (talk) 14:03, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Just by coincidence I came across this file: File:Majolica (Porcelain) ornamental violin, Bassano del Grappa, Vocenza, Italy (1830-1890) - MIM PHX.jpg. Now what is it? Maiolica or porcelain? It cant be both. --Joostik (talk) 08:27, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

MetacatsEdit

Hi, Joostik. When you use the {{Metacat}} template, please remember to include the required criterion parameter. I have just added the parameter to several categories you created. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 11:28, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Verenigd Koninkrijk der NederlandenEdit

Beste Joostik, ik zag dat je een kaart over het VKN maakte, die in veel lemma's opgenomen is (1815-VerenigdKoninkrijkNederlanden.svg en anderstalige varianten). Terecht trouwens, want het is een prachtige kaart. Wel wil ik graag je aandacht vestigen op een foutje dat in deze kaart is geslopen. Voor de westgrens van het groothertogdom Luxemburg heb je die van de latere provincie (Belgisch-)Luxemburg gevolgd, maar zij stemmen niet overeen. Hierdoor zijn sommige gebieden onjuist gekleurd:

  • De zuidpunt van de provincie Namen (o.a. Orchimont) hoorde bij het ghd. Luxemburg
  • Het westelijke deel van Luxemburg (o.a. Marche-en-Famenne, La Roche-en-Ardenne, St.-Hubert) hoorde bij de provincie Luik
  • De noordpunt van Luxemburg (o.a. Vielsalm) hoorde bij de provincie Luik

Deze kaart geeft een overzichtelijk beeld van de oude situatie. Grosso modo vormde de westgrens een lijn langs negen plaatsen: Bagimont, Redu, Framont, Laneuville, Roumont, Engreux, Bérisménil, Fraiture en Deiffelt. Het precieze verloop kun je terugvinden op deze oudere kaart, ten noorden van het roze gekleurde département des Forêts.

Heb je de werkversie van jouw kaart nog? Dan kun je dit misschien snel corrigeren? Ik hoop dat het lukt, en de kaart binnenkort nog beter de toenmalige situatie zal weergeven. Wil je dit doen? Bij vragen of opmerkingen, geef me gerust een seintje! Met vriendelijke groeten, Wimpi (talk) 21:00, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Hallo,
Sorry voor de late reactie wegens vakantie. Ik heb geen aparte "werkversie", de gepubliceerde versie is de enige. Deze kan overigens door iedereen bewerkt worden. Als je enige ervaring hebt met .svg bestanden kan je dat eenvoudig zelf doen, dan kan je precies bepalen welke grenzen je wilt verschuiven. Zelf heb ik Inkscape gebruikt, welk programma je gratis kan downloaden. Succes, --Joostik (talk) 08:56, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

File:新港社大道空拍實景.jpgEdit

I've looked at your edits on File:新港社大道空拍實景.jpg. "Tainan" has been written under it. I don't understand why your modify the category that refers to Category:高速公路 as Category:Roads in China.--Kai3952 (talk) 01:17, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Because categories should always be in English and NEVER in any non-latin script. --Joostik (talk) 08:46, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I know what You said, but I'm not asking that what language is used to name categories. What I was asking is: Why do you classify Tainan under China?--Kai3952 (talk) 18:31, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
Officially thats still considered China. But lets not get into that: just change the category to Roads in Taiwan. --Joostik (talk) 20:34, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean. Can you say more about why you say that "Officially thats still considered China"?--Kai3952 (talk) 13:59, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
No, look it up yourself. --Joostik (talk) 14:39, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
Why? "Tainan" and "China" are different concepts, but I don't know how you think that "Officially thats still considered China". Shouldn't we use more precise category? Looking at this edit, clearly you can see that the description was originally written as "新港社大道空拍實景" by the uploader(User:Guanting17). I've found on Wikipedia about 新港社大道, even I try to search with a map(see here) for it. The final results prove that it is indeed located in Tainan.--Kai3952 (talk) 15:59, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
Joostik, I am waiting for your reply.--Kai3952 (talk) 09:50, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

Joostik, Category:Roads in China is not very precise. I'm not sure why you think of "Roads in Tainan" as "Roads in Taiwan".--Kai3952 (talk) 02:25, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Category:Buildings in WirralEdit

Pointless. We don't categorise anything much by geographical areas, which is what Wirral is, since the current hierarchy is political, i.e. country -> county -> council area -> suburb. Items in Category:Buildings in Wirral should either be in Category:Buildings in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral or Category:Buildings in Cheshire West and Chester. Cheers.

Nizhny Novgorod OblastEdit

Hi, how did you find out the location for [2] and [3]? (and are you sure?) --Te750iv (talk) 21:34, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Not 100%, but at least some of the (limited in number and time period) photos of User:Psihonavt20-21 (File:Кудьма.jpg, File:Колодец в Лисьих Ямках.jpg) I could positively identify and they are closely located in places which you would need to be familiar with as a local. His other photos are all of the kind you would make in your local area, like the pictures of those railroad tracks or electricity lines, or a small local brook or the angler the photographer knows by name. Agreed, that's not 100% but it never is, even when the photographer tells you so. --Joostik (talk) 23:29, 2 April 2018 (UTC) P.S.: That small brook, File:Ункер.jpg, is also located nearby (actually Unkor on the map). Theres also a railway line passing by the village, which looks pretty similar in Google Streetview. I would almost be tempted to put all of them in Category:Bogorodsky District of Nizhny Novgorod Oblast, but won't go that far.--Joostik (talk) 16:17, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

File:Security palace.jpgEdit

I have a question about your edits. File:Security palace.jpg shown is a Chinese temple, but I don't understand why you think it is "Religious rituals in Japan"? Also, I noticed the same problem at your other edits(see: [4]).--Kai3952 (talk) 16:49, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for noticing! I really cant remember that particular edit, but it probably was one of a large batch of un- or badly categorized pictures. Most were probably of a particular subject to do with religious rituals in Japan, but sometimes unrelated pictures can slip between them. --Joostik (talk) 16:13, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

List_of_species_and_genera_in_Category:Mollusc_specimens_at_Naturalis_Biodiversity_CenterEdit

Hello Joostik,
I am working List_of_species_and_genera_in_Category:Mollusc_specimens_at_Naturalis_Biodiversity_Center.
I saw that you created a lot of species category (Cyclotopsis hinduorum, all the species of Category:Cyclotus... ).
Sadly when I am looking for references about those species, I find none.
Maybe they are badly written, maybee they have been renamed a long time ago and we lost the renaming.
Please, don't create species category if you don't have proof that it exists and is recognized.
I also would not mind if you provided at least one of thoses references.
Best regards Liné1 (talk) 06:45, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

If you are interested I provide a free english tool for biology in commons to search for references: fr:Utilisateur:Liné1/WikipediaBioReferences
You copy/paste a scientific name, press search, wait, then copy paste the wikicommons syntax in commons
The result is something like: this

Category:Israel Radio InternationalEdit

Hello. I saw that you moved many pictures from Category:Radio Reka to Category:Israel Radio International. Could you explain why, please? I can see two problems. One, these people do not belong any more to Reka. And two, they belong now to Israel Radio International, which is wrong, at least without sources. Thank you. IKhitron (talk) 22:02, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

At least the English, French and Russian Wikipedias agree that Israel Radio International and Reka are the same. If they are not, I suggest you could make this clear in at least the English WP. Of course you can then move the items back. Sincerely, Joostik (talk) 22:10, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
The same??? Well, I understand now. For your information, Reka was local station, intended for new immigrants in first years of their life in the new country, until they learn the new language. Israel Radio International (Channel 5) was a station for abroad, and its programs were on Farsi only. Where do you mean, in English? About Russion, it's surprising, because I wrote the Russion article about Reka, and I do not remember such text. Btw, the word Reka is an abbreviation, meaning Reshet Klitat Aliya, Immigration Absorbtion Channel. Thank you. IKhitron (talk) 22:21, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
I have to partially correct myself here: the Russian WP doesn't actually say they are the same, but all the international versions are linked to the same Wikidata item. In some languages there seems to be a mix-up with Voice of Israel as well.Joostik (talk) 07:16, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
I see. Again, where it is in English? IKhitron (talk) 11:41, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
en:Israel Radio International starts with: "Israel Radio International or Reka (Hebrew: רשת קליטת עלייה‬ Reshet Klitat Aliya, or רק"ע‬ Reka) is the radio service of Israel Broadcasting Authority for immigrants and listeners abroad." Joostik (talk) 15:42, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Well, enwiki is always full of mistakes, and any try of fixing brings undoing and blocking. So I'll not try any more. "Reka is" shows enough, radio was closed a year and half ago. Could you, please, read the original Hebrew version with Google Translate, see I'm right, and undo your edits? Thank you. IKhitron (talk) 16:58, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi. What's up? No both categories are empty. IKhitron (talk) 13:25, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry, with all that renaming it seems I somehow have put hem all in Category:Radio Kan Reka. --Joostik (talk) 15:38, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Caegory:Erich Klann (politician)Edit

In reply to an email by User:1970gemini:

First of, I suggest such questions to be discussed here and not by email.

The question being why I changed the uncategorized category Category:Erich Klann (Kommunist) to Category:Erich Klann (politician).

As is clearly stated in the page on naming conventions on Wikimedia commons: category names should always be in English, except with untranslateable names or concepts, in which case they should at least be in Latin-based script. Erich Klann (Kommunist) should therefore be written as Erich Klann (communist). The fact that theres only a German-language WP-article about him is irrelevant. Subjects about which there is only a Chinese-language article should not have a Chinese-language Commons category either. Actually there are many subjects and people without any Wikipedia article in any language which do have a category on Wikimedia Commons.

Then there is the question whether he should be defined as a communist or a politician. That is of course debateable. Personally I considered politician to be more neutral, and his relevance lies in him having been a local politician, not in having been a communist, of which there have been millions more. But if you think he would be better described as a communist, then you can still change the category to Category:Erich Klann (communist); with a c, that is.

Yours, Joostik (talk) 10:39, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Dem wage ich doch stark zu widersprechen. Unter den Weblinks ist es hinreichend 'Template:'Commonscat'' einzugeben um eine entsprechende Seite zu erhalten. Ich zitiere mal aus einem Film: "all animals are equal, but some of them are more equal than others"?
Sicher, Fragen sollten hier diskuttiert werden, nur ist jede Frage würdig hier diskuttiert zu werden! Wenn x das Handeln von y nicht versteht und dieses Nichtverstehen aus Sicht von x nicht zwangsläufig den Tatbestand erfüllt, ist es mE besser, die Frage vorerst über die Email-Fkt zu klären.
Due to this "As is clearly stated in the page on naming conventions on Wikimedia commons: category names should always be in English, except with untranslateable names or concepts, in which case they should at least be in Latin-based script." I would like to remeber the Tiananmen Square. Everyone knows that Wikipedia and the chinese goverments made an agreement. The chinese ones can't see, what the rest of the world could see. Conversion: The rule you specify can not be binding on anyone.
Yours1970gemini 13:47, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your reaction, whhich however does not address any of the points I made above, other than that I understand you consider it unfair that English is the standard language on Commons. Although I did not make that rule myself I strongly agree with it. First off, there has to be one common language for categories because of general understanding and to prevent parallel category trees. Second, Wikipedia and its sattelite projects started as an English-language effort. Also, English is the common language of a great part of the internet world and the world in general. Very unfair toward German, but there it is. What Tienanmen Sqare and the Chinese government have to do with that I really cant follow. Yours, Joostik (talk) 15:50, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

This is not a female politicianEdit

Please fix the category you recently changed. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 10:25, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Depends on your definition of female politician. If it includes only women holding political offices, then probably not. If it includes any woman involved in politics, then probably more than one. The categories as they were had at least 95% overlap, and their relation to wikidata items was similarly unclear. I can restore Category:Women in politics as a bona fide category, but it will probably become a mess again. Joostik (talk) 18:36, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Lisk-Carew BrothersEdit

Dear Joostik, You redirected [[Category:Lisk-Carew Brothers]] to [[Category:Alphonso Lisk-Carew]], and replaced all photographs to the latter category. I would like to hear arguments on which these actions are based. I read every scrap of paper written about the Lisk-Carew Brothers, and I don't think it is clear who made these photographs. Alphonso's brother was his assistant, and it might well be there was a division of tasks. Moreover, every photo mentions "Lisk-Carew Brothers", so there was a clear reason why the images were in that category. It would be nice if you could give some arguments for changing these categories. Of course I won't change the categories back, if your arguments are convincing. Vysotsky (talk) 18:44, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

You can argue about the position of an assistant, but never mind. If you thin that's undecided I'll change it back. Joostik (talk) 18:54, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
