NHLE taggingEdit

I saw your comment on Peter I. Vardy's talk page regarding the "listed buildings with known IDs" category and wondered what your opinion on commonly accepted best practice is? I have taken a lot of photographs of listed buildings in England and dream of either an ultimate category (with c.600k subcats) OR a giant category which could be mined/shared with Historic England users et all. How should I be tagging? Thanks so much for all your hard work here, I've always been an admirer. No Swan So Fine (talk) 13:47, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi, I've long thought that categories should be used for removing redundancy by listing commonalities, and that seems largely to be norm. I disagree with Peter's argument that adding {{Listed building England}} to individual images within a category is performing a service for the reader- I don't think our users (if any) are so disinterested that having found an image, they wouldn't also know that information about the subject of the image, rather than the image, is going to be in its category. As for the "listed buildings with known IDs" category, I can see how it's useful for Historic Britain/English Heritage users but there doesn't appear (at a cursory glance ) to be any sorting criterion. Thanks for the plaudit, it's rare here but appreciated. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 11:35, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Commons Conference projectEdit

Hello Rodhullandemu,

I'm writing you as one of the most active Commons users right now. Since a while now, the idea of a dedicated Commons conference has been floating around, but since the last Wikimania concrete steps have been taken to actually make it happen next year. If you're interested in participation or maybe willing to help organize the first ever Commons Conference, I invite you to check out the project page and leave your comments; or just show your support for the idea, by signing up.
