Communes du Doubs

Bon le bonjour.

Je suis en train de faire un modèle commune pour simplifier la saisie dans la table. Le modèle intègre le lien vers le teste osmose, et des options de contrôle qualité.

Il me faudrait juste quelques minutes pur que je transforme le code de la page pour intégrer le modèle... FrViPofm 12:11, 18 May 2009 (UTC) Ça roule !FrViPofm 12:54, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Templates FR:Map Features

Slt Damouns, pourquoi as-tu arrêté de migrer les sections de la page FR:Map Features vers des templates ? Maintenant, on se retrouve avec la moitié du travail fait. Faut-il que je le termine moi-même ou tu avais juste fais une pause ? -- Pieren 07:36, 17 September 2009 (UTC)


Bien vu. J'avais ancré l'expression au début (^) et à la fin ($). Mais le plugin d'Étienne (qui vient d'être papa) ajoute ces ancrages. J'espère que c'est réparé. FrViPofm 08:55, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Massive pointless edits on the wiki

Please do not start mass changes on the wiki which have little point( (e.g., removing national flags as small icons to indicate language). It makes the Recent Changes page useless, by filling it with spam. SK53 13:27, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

OK, should I have noted them as minor edits? Damouns 13:29, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
That's a start, even better don't even do them. Most people are used to a convention whereby the flag of a large country where most inhabitants speak one language is used as a shorthand reference for the language. It may be a pain if you come from a small country, and in your eyes appear to be 'cultural imperialism', but in the main it's the only kludge (and it is a kludge) we have for visually indicating availability of text in other languages. Removing this reduces the usablity of the wiki in a small but significant way. SK53 14:28, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
I am sorry but I disagree with you. As an example, in the Wikipedias the languages aren't indicated by a flag (exepted maybe some exceptions, but I haven't seen them). And mixing the concepts of country and language is inacceptable for me and leads to miscomprehensions and errors. See this best practice from W3C ("Do not use flag icons to indicate languages"), this discussion in Wikipedia and also [1] and [2] Damouns 12:50, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

social facility

hey i read your french examples at the dicussionpage at social_facility. what about adding a french translation to the page? think that would be great ;) cheers kerosin

Mise à jour état d'avancement commune

J'ai vu ta mise à jour de cette page, j'espère que tu n'as pas loupé, en page talk, qu'un script en python pouvait faire ça et que tu ne l'as pas fais à la main ;-) sletuffe 21:54, 8 July 2011 (BST)

Argh. Tant pis. Damouns 14:05, 11 July 2011 (BST)

Remapping of relations

You are right, of course and I was trying to stir up the discussion, in fact. The fact remains that there are some/many relations with lots of members which have such long histories, that the browser window times out while trying to show this history (it would, of course, be better to show a partial history by LIMITing the query and providing it in pieces.

The problem with relations is, of course, the question what is licensable? Its tags? The composition of its members through time? That's a nightmare to try to find out whether somebody added/removed a member and now for that particular member you have to find an independent source. I am, of course, talking about route or boundary relations with 800 members or more, which because of the sheer amount of their members are getting a lot of modifications each time one of their ways is split, recombined, replaced, etc. Which means (or should mean) that many of these relations for which nobody wants to do the impossible work of finding out what can and what can't remain, will simply be deleted on April 1st 2012.

Anyway, I was simply trying to explain the workflow in JOSM. I hope, at least, I did a good job at that. It was already late. You can delete the offending paragraph, if you prefer.

Don't forget that in most countries, the cadastre is not (yet) made available in a way that it can be used in OSM. Route relations for cycling are a 'well guarded secret' as far as the Provincial Tourism Offices are concerned (They don't mind we reuse them, as long as they are the only ones that can actually print them and make booklets about them...)
These relations have been pieced together by countless people in the field. The history is very hard to obtain, if not impossible, and some now appear to be 'tainted' by <1% of users who unfortunately touched many, many objects. The history is even harder to analyze, even if the web server does still provide it. So what to do? Drop and recreate is a pragmatic way of dealing with this conundrum. Check that it is actually correct, as much as possible and make them adhere to the standards all the others adhere to (for our kind of rcn route relations, which are links between numbered nodes, this means to drop the names and keep the note tags, etc). When they are correct and verified against other sources, sometimes even rerouted over cycleways, etc. it will be very hard for somebody to come and claim copyright on that kind of data.
If people disagree with this, I will stand corrected. Wait until April 1st before touching OSM again and if I didn't find another time sink activity by then, I'll come back to come and mend the heavily damaged data. Because, let's face it, >80% of elements have been 'tainted' in one way or another. I can now, I've been using the license change plugin for a few months now. There is one region (almost the entire province of Oost-Vlaanderen) in Belgium, which I already refuse to even touch, because when one starts changing one street there, then Ctrl-f: modified, Check license status, it will keep one busy for several hours, if not days to resolve all the problems reported.

I modified the offending passage. No idea if it's really better now and especially if it's good enough already to be acceptable. --Polyglot 22:52, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm certainly not an authority. Feel free to modify/improve the English version while translating. You could add that as an example, but it only help French people in France forward. Or we leave it out, the remark is a bit out of place under the JOSM section. The nicest would be if somebody went one step further and improved the license change plugin, in such a way that the problematic tags/members are flagged individually. It would save a lot of time for the human trying to determine what is compliant and what isn't. --Polyglot 07:05, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Feedback request


Sorry for writing in english. I am working to add new features to Search Translations (link) and would like your feedback on the same. I have an idea of a new feature, called "text search with autosuggest" through which you can specify your search filters in the search box itself (apart from the UI), and also have autosuggest to show the possible values for the filter options. An example is this.

Please write a comment here about what you think of this feature. Also here you may read about the other improvements that are planned.

Thank you and I shall be waiting for your feedback.
