Lepidoptera of FranceEdit

Hi Rudolphous; copying pictures from Category:Lepidoptera of French Guiana directly into Category:Nymphalidae of France (and similars) is not a great idea, because French mainland and Guiana are on different continents and thus have completely different species. Could you make your bot use categories such as Category:Nymphalidae of French Guiana instead? Thanks --LamBoet (talk) 17:12, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

yes, good idea. Rudolphous (talk) 17:15, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
This is done Category:Lepidoptera of French Guiana. I think we need this for Category:Lepidoptera of Réunion too? Rudolphous (talk) 17:56, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your prompt reaction :-)
Yes, the same trick would be useful for other overseas territories: currently there are categories for Réunion, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and New Caledonia. --LamBoet (talk) 18:04, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
done for these territories now too. Rudolphous (talk) 19:21, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Papilio sennomaEdit

Hi, I just noticed that you had created Category:Papilio sennoma, and I was surprised that this species doesn't seem to exist at all. Well, it turns out that the filename "Papilio sennoma" is not a scientific name, but just means "unnamed butterfly" in esperanto ;-D --LamBoet (talk) 18:44, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

 :-) Oke, that cat is removed now. Rudolphous (talk) 18:46, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Lepidoptera of the United StatesEdit

Hi Rudolphous, thanks for putting some order into these categories :-) Could you perhaps also make your bot add "Unidentified Lepidoptera of the United States" in situations such as --> this one? Thanks --LamBoet (talk) 21:36, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

I can have a look later next week. Do we have already a clear definition when a lepidoptera is unidentified? Rudolphous (talk) 21:43, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
I would say, anything that isn't identified all the way to species level, i.e. any picture that is recursively in a subcategory of Category:Unidentified Lepidoptera. --LamBoet (talk) 22:10, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

2 imagesEdit

Dear Rudolphous, Do you have time to review these 2 images. Sadly, Commons does not have any images of this Tubaria confragosa mushroom species.

Thank for all your help and Have a Good Day. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 22:39, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Its OK. MB298 has marked them. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 22:40, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

Lepidoptera in zoosEdit

Hi Rudolphous, please keep in mind that pictures categorized in Category:Lepidoptera in zoos (and its subcategories) should not be put in any subcategory of Category:Lepidoptera by country, because they are not wild animals, and the location of their butterfly house/zoo is often completely different from their origin. See for example File:Papilio demoleus (Wroclaw zoo)-2.jpg. Thanks --LamBoet (talk) 16:20, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Agree, shall take care. Rudolphous (talk) 16:23, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Odd location editEdit

[1] Yes, panoramio geo tag was some 100 meters off mark ... but it was just as far from Nikolskaya street. I wonder how many similarly tagged files ended up in wrong streets? is it possible to extract logs, say, related to category:Moscow? Retired electrician (talk) 17:57, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

The following files are changed by RudolphousBot and related to Moscow User:Rudolphous/Moscow. 20:41, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
Pefect! thank you, Retired electrician (talk) 06:49, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

....please pay attention to the many duplicates of the orchids. Orchi (talk) 13:26, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Oke, good to know. Will delete them. Rudolphous (talk) 15:47, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
....dank u wel. Orchi (talk) 14:55, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Nieuwedijk --> NieuwendijkEdit

Hallo Rudolphous, er zijn nogal wat files waar de spelling kan gecorrigeerd worden (zowel de filenames als de beschrijving ervan). Kan jij dit in one go doen?   Lotje (talk) 10:58, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Ik heb de meeste inmiddels gedaan. Rudolphous (talk) 11:55, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
Bedankt, wanneer ik er nog tegenkom pas ik ze ook nog aan. :) Lotje (talk) 14:24, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Caution with uncertain species namesEdit

Hi Rudolphous, when the species name in the description has a question mark, could you please not put the picture in this species category, but in the higher-level "Unidentified..." one? This will avoid mistakes such as this and this. Thanks. --LamBoet (talk) 07:02, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Ok, shall do this. Rudolphous (talk) 07:07, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
