Hello Alain, why did you this change on the english wiki page?

If you want to have that wiki page in nederlands language, create a new one with the right prefif for language namespace ... that means for example: all wiki pages in German start with DE:...

SO I will revert your edit, but you can take your translation from the version history of that wiki page (it is not lost!), and create a new one ... right? --Stephan75 (talk) 06:26, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

meaning of Track, conflicting with the general interpretation.

Hi Alain,

in this edit, you wrote something difficult to use as a guideline: Morocco has very clear classification of its roads, so it's a particularly easy place for people to understand the meaning of "unclassified", all that hasn't been classified. the text in the wiki for Morocco is perfect to this extent.

your above contribution, which you put before the explanation for "unclassified", gives "track" precedence, and explains it otherwise than the general rule, which is: "Roads for agricultural use, forestry use, etc". please note: the value of "highway" specifies the function of the road, not its condition. please do refer to the Highway_Tag_Africa page, in particular if you come from or live in a less rural country than Morocco.

hope you don't mind, but I will revert your edit during the next few hours.

Hello! And sorry for bothering you, but descriptions of files you uploaded need to be improved.

You have uploaded files which are licensed as requiring attribution. But right now attribution is not specified properly.

Please, ask for help if something is confusing or unclear in this message.

Please, fix that problem with this uploads - note that images with unclear licensing situation may be deleted.

Attribution may be missing completely or just be specified in nonstandard way, in either case it needs to be improved. Note that using CC-BY files without specifying attribution is a copyright violation, which is often unethical and unwanted. So clearly specifying required attribution is needed if license which makes attribution mandatory was used.

If it is applying to your own work which not based on work by others - then you can select own user name or some other preferred attribution or even change license to for example {{CC0-self}}

For your own work: ensure that it is clearly stated at file page that you created image/took the photo/etc

For works by others - please ensure that there is link to the original source which confirms license and that you used proper attribution, or that source is clearly stated in some other way.

Especially for old OSM-baded maps, made from data before license change on 12 September 2012 you should use "map data © OpenStreetMap contributors" as at least part of attribution

For old OSM Carto maps, which predate license change on 12 September 2012 you can use a special template {{OSM Carto screenshot||old_license}}

Note: Maybe the current license on this file is wrong and a different one should be used! Wiki:Media file license chart may be helpful. If unsure, ask on Talk:Wiki
