Need help with a template[edit]

I need help of how to add a template that you made, "User uploads by year".

I already created categories of cars that were registered by decade and then years. (Only for 1990s, 2000s and 2010s) but I don't know how to add the template and make it work properly. --Vauxford (talk) 20:05, 21 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Vauxford: . It's pretty much the same thing you did, I am not sure what part of it is giving you problems. Mine are sorted with a sortkey at the end of the categorization, but it was all done manually. Very time consuming to do on one's existing uploads but now that I do it to all my uploads it's quite simple. Show me a link to your attempt and I'll help you out if I can. Best, mr.choppers (talk)-en- 19:20, 25 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Mr.choppers: This one attempt I done: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Photographs_by_Vauxford_%E2%80%94_2003 --Vauxford (talk) 21:00, 25 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Vauxford: - figured out the problem, not sure how to solve it (elegantly, at least). I made it so that the subcats' name is the same as the main category, with just the year added. Your ndash makes it not work with the template as written. I changed your page so that now it lists all of the other pages, but now there is a redlink there instead. I hope you can see what I mean. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 01:20, 27 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Mr.choppers: From the looks of things it works fine now. Thank you very much. --Vauxford (talk) 11:06, 27 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Aperture focus[edit]

I'm wondering where about do you put your AP (the little box thing on your camera screen). It just a shame seeing your photos all in the best situation to be ruined by the subject not being focused properly, e.g. the car is focused on one half but not the other. Are you using the tracking focus or the live 1-point AF? When I first got my DSLR I had this problem when one half of the car is focused not the other, turns out I was using the tracking focus which after covers one half of the screen. I solved this by switching to 1-point AF and moving the AP to the middle of the car, that way it will balance the focus overall. --Vauxford (talk) 10:20, 20 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Vauxford: Hm, I tried that once before and it would never focus at all. It may have been with my previous camera, cannot remember for sure. I am going to give it another shot. Thanks. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 00:59, 21 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Oh man, just spent a half hour fiddling with my camera and realized that the diopter was on a crazy setting - meaning I was never really able to tell whether the focus was right. No wonder I never had any luck with the manual focus either - I thought I was just retarded, which I guess I was, but in another manner. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 02:26, 21 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Nah, I was just sorting a bunch of photos of Fords from the period and realized that this one is a MY1969. The Custom 500 has an additional "500" script that is missing from the one you photographed.

Graham Paige sharknose[edit]

Hi Mr C. Why create this category? Eddaido (talk) 04:20, 1 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Because the 1940 Sharknoses were called Model 107, not 97. So Model 97 doesn't hold them all. Best, mr.choppers (talk)-en- 04:22, 1 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Eddaido: Actually, it gets worse - non-supercharged Sharknoses were Model 96 (in 1938/39). I can find little to no information about Graham's 1940 lineup, everyone only wants to talk Hollywood. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 04:30, 1 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Are you making allowance for the manufacture of the next model year beginning the previous August? Have you considered when Graham ended manufacture? (I don't remember but its about then) My only concern is that they should have been taken from appearing individually in the model year system which I think's now fixed. Cheers, Eddaido (talk) 01:01, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
American car, so model years only. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 14:11, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
(Moved from my talk page) Eddaido, an Oldsmobile F-36 is a 1936 Oldsmobile F-series. They are all model year 1936. For US cars, this is what matters, as that is when changes in design take place. Whether the car was built in December 1935 or January 1936 doesn't matter when it comes to model years. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 18:00, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I know we are both aware of that. "My only" real "concern is that they should have been taken from appearing individually in the model year system which I think's now fixed" (see above). Cheers and regards, Eddaido (talk) 20:43, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Eddaido: I am not sure I understand what you mean. If the parent category (Oldsmobile F-36) is in Category:1936 Oldsmobile automobiles, then the individual pictures do not themselves need to be in the category. See WP:Subcategorization for more. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 20:49, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Please do not continue with your mistaken edits. Take it to an authority like Michael Barera. Eddaido (talk) 20:58, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Important message for file movers[edit]

Commons File mover.svg

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:36, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Eddaido: Looks like a Chevrolet, I am at work so I can't really do too much research right now... I say upload them all, whether we can figure them out or not. Many are even labelled already.

I can't see why. What use would it be? Once we gather like with like (there weren't really myriads) we can see the likenesses — which is why I hate those burrows (solitary sub-categories) some are so fond of. I hate them because one cannot see them (without a lot of difficulty and a good visual memory) to identify the images by looking at what we have on file now. All the Rootes vehicles together by year?

Volvo 21134 E or F?[edit]

Hello Mr.choppers, just wondering, is there any difference between the Volvo 21134 A-F, M-P model codes cosmically? I have this photo of one from the NEC Classic Car Show, the example is 1965 and was imported August this year. Usually if the DVLA didn't get given the exact date for when it was registration in it original country would simply put 31st December XXXX. This makes me unsure whether this car was either a Volvo 21134 E (August '64 to August '65) or a F (August '65 to August '66) (Date range information I got from the German Wikipedia article of the PV445).

In a nutshell I can't tell if this car was registered before or after August 1965 so I thought there must be some minor difference between them, thanks. --Vauxford (talk) 21:40, 22 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Vauxford: The Duett, being a workhorse, saw very few annual changes. The last six model years had the B18 engine and 12V electrics, although I think that 1966 Duetts have the B18 badge on the left hand of the grille and 1965s have it on the right side of the grille, with a Volvo logo on the left side. If I could see the picture it would help. Volvo kept track of the model years, but it didn't always signify any modifications. See page 9 here for the colors through the years - if it is dark blue then it's definitely an F. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 01:32, 23 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Hello Mr.choppers, bit late telling but here is the Volvo P210 Dutt from the car show I went to. --Vauxford (talk) 13:30, 22 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Hi @Vauxford: , that looks to be an F, which would make it a 1966 model year vehicle. Volvo have traditionally carried out their annual changes in August/September. Is it okay if I change the title accordingly? Best, mr.choppers (talk)-en- 02:48, 23 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
21134 E or F?
Of course. --Vauxford (talk) 07:17, 23 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Multiple cancellations justified[edit]

Hello Mr.choppers Face-smile.svg
Thank you for your indication : "I think you should probably stop using cat-a-lot; a lot of miscategorizations and assumptions" (link) and your cancellations, some of which, as you say "doubtful" (link). It shows that I am a human and not a robot, if we consider that the error is human. But, you are right, I will raise my level of attention so that it is as fair as possible categorizations to reduce the threshold of uncertainty.

  • Regarding the use of cat-a-lot, I take care, beforehand, to open the corresponding page before putting it in the list of the gadget, in 80% of cases. But, I recognize that I can make mistakes.
  • Regarding the indication : "assumption". Without the presence of a label dedicated to the year of manufacture, if the vehicle is present in an international showroom for the current year, effectively, I consider that the model photographed in the same year corresponds to the year of manufacture, for example. More delicate with army vehicles, I focus on the years of photography so that the user has knowledge, in the ranking by years, the existence of military vehicles manufactured by the brand and so to continue our educational vocation and information sharing. For bicycles, mopeds and scooters, I take care to read the corresponding Wikipedia articles so that the dates correspond to the existence of the product.
  • Regarding the indication : "lot of miscategorizations". Thousand excuses, I can have moments of weakness. I will make sure that I am as accurate as possible. I seem to be quite attentive to the quality of the contributions in which I participate and to be thanked regularly, in addition to the courses that I teach daily to learn how to contribute on Wikipedia.
  • Regarding the classification by years and by brands that I have been carrying out for a few months, my motivation is driven by the desire to understand this industrial evolution over time and thus complement us in our tasks between the existence of models and their evolutions. Then, it will be possible for us with the creation of the corresponding pages to also complete the existing Wikipedia by indicating the distinctions that characterize each model with their particularities and put the story in its correct chronology. Having classified old books for twenty years, I moved stacks of books of uncertainty mentioned as "errors" to finally find a place that became "logical". It is also and "a little" what we do here, we have "uncertainties" and we try to make "logical".
  • Reflections of improvements. For lack of label mentioning the year of construction or that this is validated by a date, when importing new files for example. To improve categorization, it could be envisaged to create a categorization of the type : 2005 Peugeot automobiles photographed this year (for example) and thus to distinguish manufactured vehicles from photographed vehicles.

My wish, as much as my goal, is to be able to complement us in our contributions to provide users with knowledge of developments in the automotive industry with all the educational diversity understandable by a large audience. I again apologize to you, if sometimes I make mistakes in the quantity of contributions I make. I still consider myself in the learning phase where many subjects are to be discovered in the vast Wikimedia project.

Thank you again for reporting my errors Face-smile.svg
I started to fix them and I will check my contribution history to correct my youth error. The contributor Navigator84 also canceled some of my contributions to confirm my errors. I allow myself to use your page to thank him.
The logic is well preserved, we all learn from our mistakes. Another sincere thank you for your indications and correcting me in my errors of contributions.

For cars registered in the UK it is usually possible to find out (1) the year of manufacture and (2) the year of first registration in the UK here. Though GiGo applies: if the person registering the car gave the English bureaucrats wrong data, especially with older cars, that's the data that gets shared on the government website.
For Dutch license plates, look here - though other links are mentioned on Vehicle registration plates of the Netherlands. Mr C may be more up to date on the relevant links than I am. I think they may have changed recently.
For French cars, till about ten years ago the sequential numbers at the start of the license plate ran chronologically under most circumstances, but was administered on a departmental level. So if you are familiar with the department in question you can probably check approximately which number relates to which year of first registration simply by finding someone helpful to check records at the prefecture. Mais comme tu as l'air d'etre de la francophonie, j'estime que tu devriais beaucoup mieuz que moi maitriser telles choses. These days France and Italy simply use a national chronological sequence, though I'm not sure if they insist on changing the number if you move house. this table looks potentially useful for newer cars.
Changing plates when you change your residence used to be the problem with dating cars registered in Germany and Switzerland. Don't know if it still is. For Belgium there's a single national sequence, but as far as I remember it follows the owner rather than the car, which is less helpful than you might hope for in this context.
Sadly I've no idea how it works with cars registered in Sweden, but no doubt there's a wikipedia entry on Swedish license plates somewhere.
I appreciate you may both know all this stuff already. But if you didn't, and if it helps, then good. Wikipedia can never be perfect, but of course that is no reason why we should not try to make it better! Success Charles01 (talk) 16:23, 21 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Hi all. I think it best not to assign a model year to a vehicle unless it can be stated with some certainty. Being in a show room is a pretty good indication (except that model years usually shift in August or September and often leftover cars are sold new long afterwards). Like Charles says, many jurisdictions allow you to look a vehicle up using the plate number. But definitely go slower, better to have no model year category than the wrong one. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 01:14, 22 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for your information mr.choppers and Charles01 Face-smile.svg
Completely agree with your statements mr.choppers. The presentation of vehicles in international fairs allows an indication of current models to the nearest year according to the manufacturer's instructions, except, obviously for the part of the presentations of vintage cars. My misunderstanding of association between the date of manufacture and the date of photography is specific to the Peugeot brand. Each brand with its particularities, I thought for a moment that the project was sufficiently successful for this brand and that the seriousness of the depositors led to believe that the date mentioned was the date of manufacture, which is a regrettable error on my part which I will correct.
A big sincere thank you for your additional information Charles01. Your indications gave me ideas so that we centralize our resources in the Commons:WikiProject Automobiles to help other participating contributors and the community. I also searched and tested to recognize license plates in France (link) and Italy (link). Personally, I have a few hundred photographs of automobiles produced in France pending and these links will allow the description to be completed in order to provide complete information.
Thanks again to both of you ! I correct my errors and I will ensure that my future assignments comply with the contents of the descriptions. —— DePlusJean (talk) 11:36, 22 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I think the Mercedes logo is below the threshold of originality. The Abarth logo is a bit more complex which makes it above the threshold of originality.

Can you please use my talk page and remove the deletion requests such as this one https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marie-Claude_St-Laurent_au_Espace_Go.png while keeping the images instead of taking them down? Since last December, Myloufa began adding deletion requests to photos like crazy and most of them were retained (some were taken down). Just write "Kept per Deletion requests."

Årsmodell[edit]

Automobile chassis plate from a 1986 Hyundai, first sold in Kuwait

Vägverket gör misstag ibland. Som när de registrerade årsmodell på en udda Hyundai med papper ifrån Kuwait. boivie (talk) 18:36, 3 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Boivie: Coolt! Då korrigerar jag. Tack för att jag fick veta hur i h-e en Stellar kom till Sverige; det är ju typ en av de minst intressanta bilar som någonsin byggts. Jag älskar när folk gör sig trubbel för att ta in dylika alldagliga vagnar. Min konfirmationspräst hade varit stationerad i Yokohama och tog med sig en 1986 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.3 CG (en Colt, alltså). Han ville inte kosta på sig en kort skylt där bak, så han bara böjde en standardskylt. Inga bilder, tyvärr. Mvh mr.choppers (talk)-en- 22:22, 3 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Tack för korrigeringen. Min Stellar ägdes först av ett svenskt par som jobbade i Kuwait. Efter ett par år tog de hem bilen till Sverige och förutom 1990, när de var gisslan hos Saddam, så använde de bilen varje sommar när de var hemma på semester. Själv var jag sjukligt intresserad av Hyundai, och gillar bakhjulsdrivna bilar, så jag letade reda på bilens ägare med hjälp av fordonsregistret och kontaktade ägarna samma sommar som de hade planerat att sälja bilen. Nu har bilen dock varit avställd i många år, och börjar bli mer och mer förfallen. Och på tal om böjda skyltar (och ganska alldagliga import-bilar), på den här bilen fick jag också böja den röda tillfälliga import-skylten. Den gula Luxemburg-skylten på bilden har för övrigt ingen koppling till den bilen; jag importerade den direkt från Japan till Sverige. boivie (talk) 07:59, 4 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Boivie: Wow, cool samling! En Mark II Blit räknar iallafall inte jag som alldaglig! De enda bakhjulsdrivna jag ägt är en '93 240 Classic och en '87 Peugeot 505 Turbo S. Bor i NYC så det är lite struligt att ha bil övh här. mr.choppers (talk)-en- 02:11, 5 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

You clearly did not take that photo. Don't be ridiculous. What kind of camera did you use? Who did the lighting? mr.choppers (talk)-en- 15:52, 30 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I use Sony A7M3 and photography is my hobby and way of surviving through this world :)
This particular photo was made with no commercial benefit for me thus I uploaded it here and granted unlimited rights for its use. BTW, there was no lighting used for this shot, only natural ambient light coming through the trees, that's why it's pretty dark. The real car colour appears to be brighter. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SsrKelso (talk • contribs) 03:47, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
For the Nissan X-Trail photo that was deleted, you claimed that a Nissan publicity shot you uploaded was freely licensed.

Sure, will do this in my further uploads. Didn't know that fact about EXIFs requirement in Wikipedia resources.
