Ty nejsi na dovče?

Rozhodl jsem se přeložit hlavní kategorie. Je to teda kopec práce. A občas to moc nechápu, ale snad se zadaří. Užij si lyže. Chrabros (talk) 15:50, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Jsem, ale občas je chvilka, tak mě to nedá. A já nelyžuji, dělám pod kopcem technický servis. Lenochod (talk) 16:55, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

zmena group=historic na group=Historic

Cau, nech to plavat. V tuto chvili to tak bohuzel podle jeho zvlastni mysli musi byt, aby se to spravne zatridilo do kategorii skupin. Viz diskusi, kterou se snazim o tom rozpoutat tady. Chrabros (talk) 16:56, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Deleting group on French pages

You're removing the group properties on French pages. You should update information not remove information: the correct group for Properties is Propriétés. In général look for the value in the target language (here FR: implies French) and check if the group exists. Or ask if you don't know. So please insert |group=Propriétés where you've removed |group=Properties on FR:-prefixed pages. Thanks --Nospam2005 (talk) 14:31, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

License of images

Hi! I see that you have given the images the {{GPL}} license. Is that on purpose? {{GPL}} goes better with software. For images, {{CC0-self}}, {{CC-BY-4.0-self}} or {{PD-self}} are better, as far as I know. Just as a hint. Maybe you can consider that. --Chris2map (talk) 22:02, 8 January 2022 (UTC)

Missing file information

Hello! And thanks for your upload - but some extra info is necessary.

Sorry for bothering you about this, but it is important to know source of the uploaded files.

Are you the creator of image File:Ikonky o adrese v traceru.jpg ?

Or is it copied from some other place (which one?)?

Please, add this info to the file page - something like "I took this photo" or "downloaded from -website link-" or "I took this screeshot of program XYZ" or "this is map generated from OpenStreetMap data and SRTM data" or "map generated from OSM data and only OSM data" or "This is my work based on file -link-to-page-with-that-file-and-its-licensing-info-" or "used file downloaded from internet to create it, no idea which one".

Doing this would be already very useful.

Licensing - photos

In case that you are the author of the image: Would you agree to open licensing of this image, allowing its use by anyone (similarly to your OSM edits)?

In case where it is a photo you (except relatively rare cases) author can make it available under a specific free license.

Would you be OK with CC0 (it allows use without attribution or any other requirement)?

Or do you prefer to require attribution and some other things using CC-BY-SA-4.0?

If you are the author: Please add {{CC0-self}} to the file page to publish the image under CC0 license.

You can also use {{CC-BY-SA-4.0-self|Lenochod}} to publish under CC-BY-SA-4.0 license.

Once you add missing data - please remove {{Unknown|subcategory=uploader notified 2022, June}} from the file page.

Licensing - other images

If it is not a photo situation gets a bit more complicated.

See Drafts/Media file license chart that may help.

note: if you took screenshot of program made by someone else, screenshot of OSM editor with aerial imagery: then licensing of that elements also matter and you are not a sole author.

note: If you downloaded image made by someone else then you are NOT the author.

Note that in cases where photo is a screenshot of some software interface: usually it is needed to handle also copyright of software itself.

Note that in cases where aerial imagery is present: also licensing of an aerial imagery matter.


Feel free to ask for help if you need it - you can do it for example by asking on Talk:Wiki: new topic.

Please ask there if you are not sure what is the proper next step. Especially when you are uploading files that are not your own work or are derivative work (screenshots, composition of images, using aerial imagery etc).

If you are interested in wider discussion about handling licencing at OSM Wiki, see this thread.

(sorry if I missed something that already states license and source: I am looking through over 20 000 files and fixing obvious cases on my own, in other I ask people who upladed files, but it is possible that I missed something - in such case also please answer)

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


Note that it will be in about moth cleaned with a bot, there is no need to do it manually Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 19:32, 13 September 2022 (UTC)

But processing and and and many other would be a great help! Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 19:38, 13 September 2022 (UTC)

Dot at the end of the description

Hello, are you deliberately adding a dot at the end of the description? It’s just that I have already translated many articles in Russian and I specifically do it in the same style without a dot. — Grass-snake (talk) 07:12, 26 September 2022 (UTC)

@Grass-snake: See Data items. "This is the primary way to describe the key using proper sentences that end with a period, and whose first word is capitalized. Must not contain any wiki markup or HTML. Must be less than 250 symbols. When translating, it is usually enough to add just the description to the item. Any key:... and tag:...=... will be automatically shown as links. " -- Lenochod (talk) 08:32, 26. September 2022 (UTC)
@Lenochod: If I'm not mistaken, this restriction applies only to wikidata, there are no such restrictions for the template {{KeyDescription}} and {{ValueDescription}}. — Grass-snake (talk) 07:42, 26 September 2022 (UTC)
@Grass-snake: Data items is a new model that will be used for the side box etc. For example, someone creates a page for key flood_date and also creates Data items. In it, the translator translates description, and the others are automatically filled in from Data items. The system still has bugs so it is not in full operation. Everything is being prepared gradually. -- Lenochod (talk) 08:32, 26. September 2022 (UTC)
Not exactly: there is no consensus to remove infobox parameters in English pages, and such drastic change would require clear consensus. It is also not matter of few bugs - for example watchlisting of data items is currently broken and fixing it (watchlisting without getting flooded by every single translation) would require major new feature in Wikibase Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 12:31, 27 April 2023 (UTC)

deleting unused PossibleSynonyms

Hi, I think "possbile synonyms/tagging mistakes" should stay, even if those tags are no longer in the database, because they will keep coming back. So this is not a one-time cleanup. They will keep coming back because people enter values manually. You can see this in the graph***/shop/empty - as you can see in 2014 someone corrected all occurrences of this tag, but then they came back again. So I have a request that you do not delete Possible Synonyms, even if they don't occur in the database. maro21 17:53, 19 April 2023 (UTC)

In this case as result of Mechanical Edits/Mateusz Konieczny - bot account/fixing malformed shop tags this value will not come back as long as this bot reruns (runs should be expected every few days up to every few months, so built-up to serious values is unlikely) Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 12:28, 27 April 2023 (UTC)
