map linksDeasaich

You have changed a lot of map links to use a template which says "mapa a' bhaile", when many of the articles are clearly not bailtean at all. --Vclaw 23:57, 22 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)

'baile' is town/village etc, so "mapa a' bhaile" would be something like "map of the town". I don't know if its worth having a template to specifically say that? I shall see if I can figure out something Gaelic for "map sources for grid reference". --Vclaw 01:04, 23 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
  • Worth having a template to specifically say town. I would say definitely not. The article establishes what type of feature it is about. To repeat that in the template is redundant. RHaworth 01:07, 23 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)


Sguir dheth “delete” a chur ris na dealbhan. Chan eil riaghailt sam bith far a bheilear ag ràdh gum feumar a h-uile leth-breacan a dubhadh às. Mar a thuirt mi roimhe tha fàilte ort gur cuideachadh leis na teamplaidean is an stuth teicneòlas eile ceangailte ris na dealbhan, ach an-dràsta tha na mùthaidhean agad gun fheum sam bith. --Sionnach 22:53, 27 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)

  • I am very sorry, I do not have the Gaelic. I could probably manage German but English is preferred. RHaworth 22:56, 27 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, but that is your problem, this is the Gaelic Wikipedia. So I would suggest that you learn this language, or do your clean up in for example en:Category:Wikipedia files with the same name on Wikimedia Commons. --Sionnach 23:01, 27 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
  • A significant difference between the files here and on the English Wikipedia is that those in en: all have proper source and licence tags. Uploads that do not are deleted within hours. The best I can offer you is that I will stick to my original plan of dealing with Geograph images and leave the rest to you. And I have already cleaned up en:Category:Images of the Geograph British Isles project! — RHaworth 23:16, 27 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
  • Incidentally, credit where it is due: as far as your Geograph uploads go, you have at least clearly identified the source of each image. Which is more than can be said for the majority of images here. RHaworth 23:20, 27 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for at least giving me credit for that, I was trying to set an example to show others that sources have to go with the image. But as I said before, we still have a lack of technical knowlegde here. I'll see what I can do about licence and stuff like that, but this takes time, as I'm doing this in my spare time and there are a few more jobs to be done around here as well.
But concerning the Images of the Geograph British Isles project, please show me the rule, where its written that they must be transfered to Commons only. Maybe this is a rule on WP:en only? I know, that it is not a "must" to delete all duplicates, only a "should". I'll raise this matter to the community as it is their decision.--Sionnach 23:47, 27 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
  • I agree it is "should" not "must". But if someone has transferred them to the Commons, what earthly reason is there to keep them here? See this discussion and especially the last comment: "there's no valid reason to maintain local copies of Commons files. Just makes more work for everyone". And that was for an image where there is genuine doubt about the copyright status. With Geograph images there is no such doubt. Incidentally, please see the previous section here. Could you spare a moment to go to template:gbmappingsmall and change it to the Gaelic equivalent of Map sources for grid reference {{{1}}}. — RHaworth 01:12, 28 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
Interesting discussion you linked above, as it says also: "even if the Commons version were unproblematic, we're still allowed to keep local copies". As this is not the English Wikipedia, I raised the matter at our community portal to see how the other user think about it. As this may take a while (the gaelic Wiki is kind of slow on discussions like this) I would strongly recommend not to tag any more images with "delete" in the meantime.
I translated template:gbmappingsmall now (thanks for adding it). Could you please add a brief explanation on its talk page about a quick and easy way how to find the correct grid references for each location? Usually I use geolocator for coordinates, but it doesn't show the grid references.--Sionnach 12:31, 28 dhen Fhaoilleach 2011 (UTC)
