Need help with a templateEdit

I need help of how to add a template that you made, "User uploads by year".

I already created categories of cars that were registered by decade and then years. (Only for 1990s, 2000s and 2010s) but I don't know how to add the template and make it work properly. --Vauxford (talk) 20:05, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Vauxford:. It's pretty much the same thing you did, I am not sure what part of it is giving you problems. Mine are sorted with a sortkey at the end of the categorization, but it was all done manually. Very time consuming to do on one's existing uploads but now that I do it to all my uploads it's quite simple. Show me a link to your attempt and I'll help you out if I can. Best, mr.choppers (talk)-en- 19:20, 25 June 2018 (UTC)
@Mr.choppers: This one attempt I done: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Photographs_by_Vauxford_%E2%80%94_2003 --Vauxford (talk) 21:00, 25 June 2018 (UTC)
@Vauxford: - figured out the problem, not sure how to solve it (elegantly, at least). I made it so that the subcats' name is the same as the main category, with just the year added. Your ndash makes it not work with the template as written. I changed your page so that now it lists all of the other pages, but now there is a redlink there instead. I hope you can see what I mean. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 01:20, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
@Mr.choppers: From the looks of things it works fine now. Thank you very much. --Vauxford (talk) 11:06, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Aperture focusEdit

I'm wondering where about do you put your AP (the little box thing on your camera screen). It just a shame seeing your photos all in the best situation to be ruined by the subject not being focused properly, e.g. the car is focused on one half but not the other. Are you using the tracking focus or the live 1-point AF? When I first got my DSLR I had this problem when one half of the car is focused not the other, turns out I was using the tracking focus which after covers one half of the screen. I solved this by switching to 1-point AF and moving the AP to the middle of the car, that way it will balance the focus overall. --Vauxford (talk) 10:20, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

@Vauxford: Hm, I tried that once before and it would never focus at all. It may have been with my previous camera, cannot remember for sure. I am going to give it another shot. Thanks. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 00:59, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Oh man, just spent a half hour fiddling with my camera and realized that the diopter was on a crazy setting - meaning I was never really able to tell whether the focus was right. No wonder I never had any luck with the manual focus either - I thought I was just retarded, which I guess I was, but in another manner. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 02:26, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

I see that you are not a gentleman and refuse to delete your pics of my car as I asked you to. I do remember you and can't wait to see you again.

120ZACK120 If you get this worked up over people photographing your car, which in the photos, appears to be at some meet up where possibly hundreds of people have their cameras and phones out taking pictures, why did you bring your car there in the first place? --Vauxford (talk) 13:52, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
