microformat

Hi,

You said you could offer assistance in microformats. There is a page where they could be very present : the main page or Current events page... Maybe new templates can be developed for a more clever calendar.

-- FrViPofm 13:26, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Sure. I'll have a think, how best to do this. Pigsonthewing 20:34, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
What do you think of the date format used in: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Mappa_Mercia&oldid=435946#Next_Group_Meet-ups_.26_Micro_Mapping_Events ?

OSM for the blind

Hi,

you have renamed my project-page from "OSM for the blind" to "OSM for blind people" - Don't you think this needs some discussion first? After all you have not only renamed a wiki page, but a project!

--Lulu-Ann 09:26, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

your page? Pigsonthewing 20:31, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Did you see any other contributors to this page other than me? Or do you expect me to hide a big relevant topic like accessibility as a subpage under my user page? Lulu-Ann
Do you think you can personally own a big relevant topic like accessibility? Pigsonthewing 23:11, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
I "own" a bundle of projects called "OSM for the blind", with Lorodux, Haptorender, blindOSM and blindmap. You would not rename ohter person's software projects, would you? As long as you contributions are reduced on renaming a title and my contributions are 90% of all page changes, I don't think you will overtake. And I am sorry to say that, accessibility is not a "big relevant topic" in OSM yet, BECAUSE I am one of few mappers that are aware of it. If it WAS a big relevant topic already, then there would be many more edits by others. Please join. If you think you need a general page "OSM for blind people" with content other than my projects, you are welcome to fill it with content! :-) --Lulu-Ann 14:50, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedian

Any chance the 'Wikipedian' template could be made to work for those of us with spaces in our usernames? —Tom Morris (talk) 03:12, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

reorganisation of this wiki's navigation

Hello, I write to you because you are part of the Wiki Team. I would like to establish a navigation concept for this wiki, lead by use cases. I wrote an example main page and an example navigation page (for the use case 'contribute map data'). In January, I wrote a correspendent proposal on Talk:Wiki_organisation, with some but not much feedback. I would be happy if you could add your feedback in order to decide either to refuse the proposal or to proceed. In the latter case I will incorporate all feedback, write the two missing navigation pages ('about' and 'use') and finally I would like to change the main page. Best wishes, --Cantho (talk) 07:22, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Now I proposed to apply the proposed changes to the main page. Your feedback/ vote is welcome. If you want to respond but don't have the time right now, please give a notice about when you think you can respond. Have a nice day --Cantho (talk) 10:15, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons

Hi Pigsonthewing, I am very new here and I found the tag Wikimedia Commons as dscription. But I never found the tag in the prax. It would be very interest from myside, becaus I am a photograph during long years in Commons (like as author in the german wikipedia ;-) - Perhaps you can give me more details, where it is used. --regards from Austria K@rl (talk) 17:21, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Please see the "Taginfo" panel and links on Key:wikimedia commons. Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 17:19, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
I didn't mean here in Wiki but in the maps ;-) in wiki I knows it :-) --K@rl (talk) 21:20, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Adminship

As I see you are now a crat (congrats), any chance I can be +sysopped? I promise I won't break anything (I haven't broken Wikipedia yet) and will use my superpowers for good. —Tom Morris (talk) 09:13, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Sorry tom. The bit was unrequested, and I don't plan to use it. Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 17:52, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikidata

Lets get the wikidata proposal rolling, what do you think is the next step to push this through? --Planemad/Talk 14:35, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. I wish I knew... Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 17:51, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

public artwork vs artwork

Hi, you have reverted "artwork" to "public artwork" on the wikipedia page. Can you explain why "public" is necessary there? Are there other tags for "private artwork"? If someone wanted to tag individual artwork in a gallery, shouldn't he at all, or should he use a different tag? --Dieterdreist (talk) 19:37, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Public art has as specific meaning in English. No, we don't want people tagging artworks inside galleries. Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 17:49, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Who is "we" and do you extend this to artwork in churches or facades of private buildings as well? What about "private artwork", one example is here: https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/hen-magonza/6169163041/ That is private ground and a privately commissioned and owned sculpture but publicly accessible In OSM currently not tagged specifically, it is here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1311129517#map=17/52.51085/13.37576 --Dieterdreist (talk) 18:53, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Feedback and change request in upload file message

Hi. Can you please give some feedback in MediaWiki talk:Uploadtext to improve the message shown to users? I'm requesting this to the 3 most active admins. I hope it's not considered spam :-) Thank you in advance. Zermes (talk) 06:56, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Andy, could you please continue the discussion at MediaWiki_talk:Uploadtext, maybe you've forgotten it? Otherwise, please revert the changes which I have commented on. Thank you. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 21:40, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
