Trains and depots in Historic American Buildings Survey photographsEdit

Hi, I have created /sandbox to put a report for matches to the key words "train" and "depot" in the file names of HABS uploads that you asked about on my talk page. Feel free to use it however you wish. If you would like a different search, or an update to the galleries in a few weeks time, drop another note on my talk page and I'll take a look. Thanks -- (talk) 17:26, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Tim Griffin Panjshanbe bazar - 13.jpg, is missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. Please edit the file description and add the missing information, or the file may be deleted.

If you created the content yourself, enter {{Own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

  • Image has no online flickr source to verify the license. --Leoboudv (talk) 05:19, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi Leoboudv, I'm new at this but I believe the image does have all of the needed information. I provided the author's name and the website and the license that the image is registered under. If you just type Panjshanbe bazar into Flickr the image is the first one you will see immediately at the top of the page.Monopoly31121993 (talk) 08:19, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately verification relies on direct links, if you leave this as needing searches it is reasonable to be challenged on the sourcing. I have added a direct link to the image and verified the license. If you include a direct link of this sort, a bot will normally verify the license which avoids the need for a human reviewer to spend time checking it out. This may seem a bit heavy, but keep in mind that Commons gets an awful lot of images that are incorrectly uploaded from Flickr as they do not have an appropriate license. Thanks -- (talk) 08:38, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Ok, thank you for adding the link, I just added a link to to the license page too. In the future I will add the shortened version of the web address but how did you find that?Monopoly31121993 (talk) 08:57, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
If you look at a photo in Flickr, you can normally cut down the URL to the bit that ends with "photos/<user id OR friendly name>/<10 digit photo id>". The rest of the URL is often just telling the system which album you want to view it in or what size it should be viewed at, all of which can be safely dropped. There's a whole schema for Flickr URLs as they break down into (parameter, value) pairs, however none if it is particularly helpful for Commons and we ought to stick to the most basic type of link. -- (talk) 11:12, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

  •   Comment: Images by TommyJapan are flickrwashes or stolen images taken elsewhere which this person posted on his/her flickr account and should not be uploaded on Commons. In contrast, David Wilson's 1960s (or 1970s or 1980s--if there are any) images of trains, scenery, are indeed 'own work' as he says on his David Wilson flickr profile since he has been in working in his career for 40+ years. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 23:39, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Ok, thank you for this Leoboudv. I will keep my eye out for this in the future. As far as I knew the copyright provided on Flickr was always correct but it's good to know that there is copyright violation going on there and I'll need to watch out for that. Do you have any suggestions on places to look for images of things like the Cambodian and Laotian Civil Wars? They happened over 40 years ago but it seems like there's still less than half a dozen images for both of those wars combined. Are there any pages where I can post to request the help of more experienced editors for these fields? Thansk again,Monopoly31121993 (talk) 09:23, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
  • I think the legitimate images of the Cambodian/Loatian wars on flickr were likely posted to Commons years ago. The rest are probably just flickrwashes. I don't upload these images and don't know where to look. Sorry, --Leoboudv (talk) 18:20, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

File:Sounder train.jpgEdit

The reason that I reverted your change was because the file was already in the subcategories, therefore it does not need to be in the parent category. That is Commons policy - see COM:OVERCAT. It appears that you have made this same mistake on dozens of files, which needs to be reverted. If you prefer, I will ask an uninvolved admin to check before reverting.

If you look at the file description page, you will note that I was responsible for the transfer from Flickr. That's why I have the file watchlisted - it has absolutely nothing to do with you. While I disagree with you about several articles on Wikipedia, that does not translate into "stalking" you. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 19:21, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Ok, please ask an uninvolved admin to join the discussion.Monopoly31121993 (talk) 20:52, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
I've asked JamesIwoodward here. Reputation as a good admin, but not one I've had substantial interactions with. You're free to comment there, or wait till he responds. I noted there that I do intend to respond to your message on en.wikipedia; however I'm waiting till I'm not under stress that may affect my ability to discuss things calmly. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 22:32, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
I can't remember ever having had an interaction with either of you in the past, so I'm about as independent as you could hope for.
It is clear to me that adding Category:Sounder commuter rail to File:Sounder train.jpg is Overcat. The file has both Category:Bombardier BiLevel coaches of Sounder and Category:EMD F59PHI locomotives of Sounder, both of which are sub-cats, albeit not direct ones, of Category:Sounder commuter rail. I have removed it. Please do not add it again.
I encourage both of you to clean up any similar over-categorization which you see. Having unnecessary categories on files simply makes it harder for people to find files relevant to their needs. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 01:17, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi (Jameslwoodward), thank you for your help. I'm new to wikicommons and what strikes me as strange is that there is a category called Category:EMD F59PHI locomotives of Sounder when there is no page for EMD F59PHI or even Sounder locomotives. It's far too specific to be useful to users to categorize images in this way, especially when only one or two images are going into each category. In total we're talking about there only being 15 or so images of all locomotives, coaches, etc. It's certainly not making it easier for users to find the images they need by having them categorized this this. That said, I'm also a bit preoccupied at the moment to try to learn how such categories were legitimately created to begin with so I'll get back to this in a couple of days. Thanks again.Monopoly31121993 (talk) 18:43, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Your point is well taken -- I would not put all the images of locomotives and cars into the existing category Category:Rolling stock of Sounder. There are a total of 46 images in its subcats, with some duplicates. I think I'd be inclined to do this:

and eliminate the finer detail. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:10, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

There already are the categories you were looking for: Category:EMD F59PHI locomotives --> Category:EMD F59PHI locomotives by operator --> Category:EMD F59PHI locomotives of Sounder; also Category:Rolling stock of Sounder --> Category:Sounder diesel locomotives. Very focused subcategorization is common and even necessary in a few areas of Commons - airplanes are often categorized by their individual tail number. (That system works amazingly well - when an incident occurs, Wikipedia usually has an image of the aircraft available long before conventional news sources do).
What might be very valuable here is a flat category containing all Sounder trains, in addition to the very focused rolling stock categories. I created one long ago at Category:Shore Line East trains for the SLE system, and it works in complement to the rolling stock categories. I'd like to propose the flat categories Category:VRE trains and Category:Sounder trains; I think that would provide a useful catchall category while not clogging up the main categories for each system. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 22:39, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Please establish consensus for establishing flat (non-"by name") file category trees first, that's something not intended to exist per COM:CAT. I recall somebody creating Media of [type] "flat" categories of Trams in Prague, I had to remove these from thousands of files after a CFD. There is a great, default-enabled tool called FastCCI.    FDMS  4    00:14, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
I think you miss my point -- since we have only 15 locomotive pictures for Sounder. I think they should be in Category:Sounder diesel locomotives. At the moment that category is empty except for the subcat, which simply means that the user must step down one additional level to find what he wants. In other words, while subcatting by model is essential for Category:Union Pacific Railroad diesel locomotives, it is simply a nuisance here. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:39, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Thank you everyone for contributing to the discussion. I agree with (Jameslwoodward), forcing users to step down 2, or 3 levels before they can find a image which they might want to use (and if not to step back up and then back down again) has the effect of making it very difficult (and time consuming) for users to find images. Pi.1415926535's suggestion to create a category of Category:VRE trains would solve most of the usability problem by giving users a page where they can see most images of the railroad that they can use for articles without having to know things about which model number engine/ cab unit, etc. they should click on in order to find a usable image of the general category (which actually has a Wikipedia page written about it).Monopoly31121993 (talk) 08:10, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
@Monopoly31121993: Please, try FastCCI: Just click on the dropdown of Good pictures and then All images:
This is your overview, and you can create it for any category you want.    FDMS  4    12:13, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons, and Commons:Image casebook for some specific examples. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on Wikimedia Commons; "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please note that derivative works of copyrighted material are also considered copyrighted. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how Wikimedia Commons works. Thanks for your contribution, and please do leave me a message if you have further questions.

Thanks for uploading File:Toledo 1900.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Removing files from Category:2016 in rail transport in the United StatesEdit

Hi, is there a reason you removed a number of files from Category:2016 in rail transport in the United States? Images of former stations and lines do belong in the year-by-year categories. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 14:09, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

I removed images of abandoned stations and right-of-way from the rail transport in 2016. I think they should be part of a category of abandoned rail transport but similar types of images are not included in any other year.Monopoly31121993 (talk) 13:21, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
Well first off, that's not true. There are numerous other images of abandoned rail transport facilities and vehicles which have been added to the yearly categories by a number of editors, which constitutes a pretty obvious consensus. If you wish to remove such images from the category, you would want consensus to do so. Second, it is be your responsibility to explain your actions in your edit summary, which you did not do (the default cat-a-lot edit summary is for uncontroversial technical moves only). Third, it would be your responsibility to create the parallel abandoned category structure and populate it, rather than merely removing files from a category. Fourth, you removed two images (1,2) of an active freight line (your edits were reverted by another editor), and several of my images are also of active freight lines, which means that you did not carefully check the images to determine what they were actually of. I will be reverting to the current consensus, which includes the yearly category on images of inactive lines. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 14:27, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
Ok, sorry about that. I never noticed that that was the case but if you really think that's the best place for them then you can keep adding them there. I really doubt people looking for rail transport are going to be looking for images of abandoned stations from 50+ years ago but it's not soemthing I'm motivated to do right now.

Thanks for your work on the Fortepan collection.   (talk) 10:50, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Hey ! Thanks a lot! I guess you're still uploading images from the fortepan collection so I think it's best if I wait until you're done with all of the images and then I'll continue to place them into categories. What an interesting archive of photographs! Please let me know when everything is uploaded and I'll go back and spend some time to make sure they're in the right categories. Thanks again!Monopoly31121993 (talk) 11:05, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
It'll be a few weeks yet. My estimate is that the uploads are under half way and so will take at least as long again to complete. Lots to look at!   -- (talk) 11:11, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Some of your DRsEdit

Hello.

This is just a reminder because you did not see Commons:Deletion requests/File:2016 머슬마니아 박은주 선수 6.jpg. Please do not blindly file a DR for the file which source is in the language you do not know. User:-revi/Tistory explains the correct procedures, and usually your lack of specific languages does not constitute a reason for deletion. If you do not know certain languages and you're unsure its license status, you may want to ask someone who speaks that language.

Thank you for your work, and have a nice day. — regards, Revi 11:21, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Copying to Category:XXXX in rail transport in the United StatesEdit

Please stop copying from the Amtrak and MBTA yearly categories to the general yearly categories. The Amtrak and MBTA categories are already subcategories of the general category. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 16:34, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

When an image is already in Category:Amtrak in XXXX, it's duplicative to put it in XXXX in rail transport in the United States, except for those limited cases where the train is in Canada. Mackensen (talk) 15:42, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Ok Pi.1415926535 and Mackensen, I'll try not to include Amtrak pictures but the problem is that XXXX in rail transport in the United States is the macro-category so by adding Category:Amtrak in XXXX before first adding all relevant images to the macro-category it makes it harder and slower to go back and dissect out all of the Amtrak images. I have now added "XXXX in rail transport in the United States" to all of the "Roger Puta" images prior to 1986. If either of you would be willing to take over adding the "XXXX in rail transport in the United States" for the remainder of years it should be easier to add sub-categories for Amtrak and MBTA by "moving" those images to their new category from "XXXX in rail transport in the United States" once they have been added. In the meantime, I'll go back and check the 1972-1985 images. Happy New Year!Monopoly31121993 (talk) 17:03, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi Dogad75, this image was first uploaded onto the Russian version of Commons and there it has a PD pre-1923 tag. I don't read Russian so please double check what you see there but if this image is from 1917 as it says it's almost certainly in the public domain.

В русскоязычной версии Википедии тоже не указан источник, но похоже, что фото взято из газеты или книги. Не важно, когда сделана фотография, важен автор и его годы жизни, а он неизвестен. Значит, необходима точная дата обнародования файла, чтобы подтвердить переход фото в общественное достояние. С уважением, --Dogad75 (talk) 17:22, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi Dogad75, I would appreciate if you asked for help on the Russian version of Wikipedia before moving to delete this. There are very few historical images from Central Asia during this period so keeping those that are already in commons is extremely helpful.
