File:Wikimedia UK Governance Review Descriptive Chronology v6.pdfEdit

Richard, I think you will agree that uploading "version 7" over the file named "Wikimedia UK Governance Review Descriptive Chronology v6" is going to result in confusion. Can you upload the new version as a new file and find someone to delete your overwriting of the original? Both should be available here. Thanks. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 22:14, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Incidentally, did Compass make the changes or was this done by WMUK? Delicious carbuncle (talk) 22:14, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
You're right, though it seemed inevitable that either route will lead to some confusion. People have already linked to version 6, which is now out of date as Compass have made corrections. Having two versions of the same document will lead to fragmentation which I would prefer to avoid, so I replaced the older one to minimise the chance that the inaccuracies in v6 proliferate. As the original has not been deleted it is still available in the file history. If I were to upload v7 under a separate name, how would you suggest I make sure people don't use v6 by mistake? Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 11:16, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
Hello Delicious carbuncle. The changes to the descriptive chronology were made by Compass after discussion with WMUK. The reason that I suggested to Richard that he upload v7 of the file over v6 was because there are many places around the web that link to the file. In my opinion it is better that those links point to the most accurate and up to date version of the chronology. I hope you would agree. As ever, I am more than happy to engage with you in conversation on this (or indeed any) topic so please do let me know if you have any further questions. Stevie Benton (WMUK) (talk) 11:34, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
Stevie, in some cases the most recent version is what people will want, but in other cases people will expect to get the version that was released at the time. If they download a file identified as version six, that's what they think they are getting, not version seven. I think it would be best to upload the newer version separately (perhaps as "Wikimedia UK Governance Review Descriptive Chronology" with no version number) and add a note (and link) in the description of this file. Another solution would be to rename this file and leave a redirect. The current situation is, um, less than ideal. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 13:08, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
The files have been renamed and a redirect left behind so that "v6" has been removed. Hopefully this should prevent confusion arising when people download version 7 expecting version 6. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 15:48, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

WLM in the UKEdit

Thanks for your interest in this. I'd like to get some proper teams in place now, so we can decide who will be doing what, and I wonder if you could go to Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 in the United Kingdom/People and move your signature to the correct heading? Many thanks, MichaelMaggs (talk) 14:42, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves MonumentsEdit

Hi, thank you for removing the tag of the stonehenge and the advice, and I still would like you to tag them. P.S. I'm new to wikimedia so I don't know a lot about it, if my method of leaving messages of User Talk please tell me about that. Thanks!--Ffffafsd (talk) 13:27, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

No need to worry, you have got the hang of leaving messages on talk pages. I've added the right tags to your other two pictures, so that's all sorted. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 13:25, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

An update from Wiki Loves Monuments UKEdit

Thank you for taking part in Wiki Loves Monuments UK  
More than 300 people have contributed a total of 4,000 photos to this year's competition and we wanted to say thank you for helping us get this far. The competition runs until the end of September, and you can upload as many images as you want - so feel free to document some more sites. Or why not go through your old images to see if you have any others that could be submitted?

Since you've already submitted some pictures to the competition, you might be interested in the banner mini-contest; to take part you crop your images to a 7:1 and upload a new version. You can find out more about how to do that here. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the competition and share it with others! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 12:24, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

CategoryEdit

FYI there is a category Category:Quality images from Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 of England inside Category:Quality images from Wiki Loves Monuments UK 2017. -- Colin (talk) 13:26, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

@Colin: Thanks for pointing that out, I hadn't noticed the sub-category. I've filtered down the images from the main category to the more specific one. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 13:41, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
