Why do you categorise some letter images into a wrong category only because it looks like some other letter while it hasn't anything to do with it?Edit

  • When I miscategorize something I am not aware of the error at that time. Without specific examples, I cannot explain any more clearly. Please understand that the lack of good faith evidenced by the statement implied in your question («Why do you »…« only because») is against COM:AGF. Please understand also that the way your question was posed (long-ass heading including the whole point in convoluted syntax) met the threshold for chuckles and headshake. -- Tuválkin 02:14, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
    • 1/1b, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, 3c, for example. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 21:48, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
      • Pointing out other’s errors is a fun sport. Like how I’m chuckling at the clueless way you link to diffs. -- Tuválkin 02:40, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
        • Could you point out what exactly you found clueless in my way I link to diffs? Also, now that you have specific examples you could explain more clearly. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 17:12, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Sure thing:
  • clueless: [ number&oldid=previous edit number label]
  • neat: [[Special:Diff/edit number/previous edit number|label]]
About your examples of my mistakes they are just just that, mistakes. Not done willingly, meant to be something else, fruits of distraction or clumsiness, unintentional, and purposeless — I have no other explanation. -- Tuválkin 20:35, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Okay, but you can't tell me this was a mistake. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 08:54, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
  • No, that’s not a mistake, that’s correct — and a mistake is your reverting. Please refer to U+0192 LATIN SMALL LETTER F WITH HOOK, which is explicitly marked as a synonym of "florin sign" and how a move to disunify these two acceptions into separate Unicode characters has been stalled for 10 years now. Should Unicode ever contain two separate characters for F with hook and for the florin sign, we should certainly separate the two concepts, but as it is — probably not. Furthermore, the musical symbols for forte, fortissimo and fortississimo are expected to be typset as bold italic lowercase Latin effs and are present in Unicode as U+1D191 MUSICAL SYMBOL FORTE; it would be wise to treat this as a categorizable notion in Commons, should there be enough media item to justify it, but always as a subcat of F. -- Tuválkin 19:26, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
  • The “florin sign” is a certain usage of the F with hook, that's why I separated them (also, the capital F with hook is not used as a florin sign). Probably there could ve a category like “f as f with hook”. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 19:57, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Trams by fleet numberEdit

User_talk:Maxim75#Trams_by_fleet_number - OK. Will add categories for new entries

My UploadsEdit

Hi. I by mistake put wrong deletion request labels on some of my uploaded photos. What I meant was to put speedy deletion label instead of nomination for delet due to security reasons. Thank you for your contribution. I want to delete some information from them and re-apload them. However, I made a mistake to put the right label. If it is possible to delete those information (altitude- latitude) from them while pictures are still here without deletion I am more than happy for admins to do that. Thanks. Gharouni (talk) 02:18, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

  • I thought it would be a problem like that. That can be done routinely by anyone — including yourself: Instead of asking for deletion, either as speedy or as regular, just upload a new version with expunged EXIF (or whichever needed modification) onto the existing one and then ask from an admin the removal of the previous version from the file history. That’s the best, fastest, and simplest solution for everybody. -- Tuválkin 02:22, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

Mistaken rollbackEdit

Yeah, I'm sorry. Pressed the rollback button by mistake while viewing my watchlist on the phone. I did not even notice I did that until you reverted me. Thanks --Cuatro Remos (nütramyen) 15:10, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Cyrillic two letter combinationsEdit

Are you planning to make a navigation for combinations of two Cyrillic letters? That would be great, since there's a lot of images with two Cyrillic letter combinations and the navigation is practical. If you are going to create one, it would be easier create categories already with the navigation instead of editing them afterwards to add it. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 21:30, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

  • It’s the next logical step, and I plan to work on it, but I cannot make any promises concerning exact timelines and goals. If you wanna do it now, go ahead and I’ll catch you later, no problem. -- Tuválkin 21:33, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Category:VV as W vs Category:N as ИEdit

That is confusing. In the first one, VV (1) is used to represent W (2), but in the second, И (2) represents N (1). They (actually all categories from Category:Unusual spellings) should be unified, I think. I think it's better to have (actual letter) as (form), but there still has to be an explanation on the category description page. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 09:05, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

source=exif parameterEdit

Thanks for what you did on File:DiddleArena.JPG. I wasn't aware of the source=exif parameter, but I am now, and will certainly use it in the future thanks to you. Senator2029 11:04, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

  • @Senator2029: You’re welcome and thanks for creating the red cat my edit caused to materialize. What moved me to play with this was the use of an |location= in {{exif date}}, which was not being displayed nor otherwise used. I then created this mantainance cat and have been working on it after discussion. -- Tuválkin 11:09, 10 May 2019 (UTC)


Should there be two separate categories on St and st ligatures or are they unified? 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 08:17, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

  • @1234qwer1234qwer4: I think separated, if there is a clear and consistent typographic difference in the examples we have. If so, the name of these categories should be "Ligature "st"" and "Ligature "St"", to stress the exact description, and both, along with Ligature "ſt", should be categorized under ST ligature. A category for Ligature "ST" is also possible, if there are cases of it. (I wrote this before browsing our current content; will check it ASAP.) -- Tuválkin 16:21, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Back now. Looks like we have material enough (and solid enough) to create all these. Very good! -- Tuválkin 20:21, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Category:Peter Witt streetcars of the Toronto Transit CommissionEdit

I just looked at this category and noticed that there are many misidentified and miscategorized images in it. I intend to clean it up, but before I incur the wrath of the commons police, can you offer any comments or suggestions about making wholesale name changes so as to standardize titles (i.e. potentially controversial page moves)? Thanks. Useddenim (talk) 20:52, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

  • @Useddenim: I’d say you go ahead. There’s no significant kibbitz activity regarding most categorization, trams included. I’d say that photos of TTC cars should be categorized by date, model (incl. fleet number as appropriate), and route. -- Tuválkin 21:16, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. Useddenim (talk) 21:19, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
