Re:Den Haag[edit]


Thank you for message on my talk page. I see the problem that you are pointing out. The reason of the problem, many subcategories under Category:Netherlands, is related to the source data used for category creation. Almost all categories were created from UN/LOCODE lists and hierarchy of the lists is poor; for example, Japan's list have 1 layer (Subdivision code) and Netherlands have no layer. Now I'm growing Japan's seed categories little by little, by hiding names of road terminals/fishing ports under names of cities/towns. If you have time, would you please grow Netherlands' seed categories little by little? At the start of work, I think it's better to put 12 provinces at the head of subcategories by using sort key like this; for example, Category:Honshu has [[Category:Japan|*2]] in it and I can rewrite it to [[Category:Japan|*Honshu]] if I want to make it alphabetical order under *.

As to Template:Den Haag, though I don't know how it works in detail, general users will not use the link "What links here" to find Den Haag photos. I think it's better to create the page in main namespace rather than template namespace, and use <gallery> tag to show photos or make it redirect page to Category:Den Haag simply like the page Japan which has "#REDIRECT [[Category:Japan]]" in it. -- Tatata 01:21, 23 October 2007 (EDT)


Great work on maintaining Netherlands' subcategories! -- Tatata 21:50, 24 December 2007 (EST)

Admin status on Shared[edit]

Hello Rein N.!

Cacahuate flipped your admin flag on shared. Now you can do a speedy deletion like that Peter deleted "Farming+gold in WoW". Enjoy! -- Tatata 21:25, 11 December 2008 (EST)

Thanks for the photo corrections[edit]

I just wanted to thank you for correcting the tags on my images Redbear's contributions

At first I couldn't figure out who had edited my images, or why. Now I understand.

--Redbear 13:17, 2 June 2009 (EDT)

No problem. I am glad you got the message how to tag. --Rein N. 15:50, 2 June 2009 (EDT)

Map categorizing[edit]

Hi Rein, I'm not sure what you mean by "Not all under M." Would you care to join this discussion on how to organize our map categories? It would be good to develop a standard procedure for map categorizing so that we don't use unnecessary effort going back and forth. --Peter Talk 01:07, 8 June 2009 (EDT)

By the way, great work getting all these maps properly categorized. That looks like a lot of work! --Peter Talk 00:47, 25 June 2009 (EDT)
Its a view clicks for one map, but there are a lot of them. Peter, I think, making maps like you are, is far more work. --Rein N. 05:42, 25 June 2009 (EDT)


I'm pretty sure Wieckse is Dutch...? Jpatokal 21:49, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

Admin on fr[edit]

Hello! As you already know, fr is a mess. Since you are already active in the clean up effort, I'd like to just go ahead and give you admin privileges there. Would this be ok with you? --Peter Talk 20:59, 19 August 2009 (EDT)

Yes, I realize you are not proficient in French, but I just need help taking care of the spam & vandalism there! Realistically, given the work I already do on other language versions, I won't be able to keep it, fr, he, & hu clean without some other administrators helping out. (Drozd does a lot of work already on the Polish version.) So if you are willing, I will flip your admin switch on fr—just let me know.
Re: VolkovBot, see Script_nominations#VolkovBot. It is probably easier to get in contact with the bot owner there. --Peter Talk 16:45, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
I haven't yet heard you accept the position, but I went ahead and made you an admin on :fr anyway. I'll be away for a couple weeks, so I'd better do it now ;) --Peter 17:29, 22 August 2009 (EDT)
I have already used my new buttons, so merci (thanks) for those. It makes cleaning up more effective. Rein N. 05:10, 24 August 2009 (EDT)

Thailand Map[edit]

Thanks for the advice, I had no idea I was supposed to fill something in there! And yes, I speak Dutch, as I am Dutch :)

Misschien kunnen we voor de Nederlandse provincies de categorieën South-Holland en North-Holland maken (dus met het streepje), dat zijn de echte namen van de provincies in het Engels (en anders dan South Holland, Illinois, die zonder streepje is. Globe-trotter 08:42, 21 December 2009 (EST)

Kan natuurlijk ook. Alleen kan een categorie niet makkelijk hernoemd worden. Nieuwe aanmaken en oude wissen. Alle onderliggende categorieën pas je met de hand aan. Ik heb dit opgezet, omdat er een paar honderd subcategorieën waren zonder indeling in Nederland. De categorieën zijn oorspronkelijk automatisch gegenereerd door een bot aan de hand van een lijst van de VN. Sommige plaatsen kom op internet alleen op andere websites die op dezelfde lijst gebaseerd zijn. Havens en industrieterreinen en goederenstations incluis. Ik heb de provincie en gemeente lagen ingevoegd met behulp van o.a. Google en Wikipedia ingedeeld.--Rein N. 12:45, 21 December 2009 (EST)


Hi, Rein. Last year, you marked Image:Katherine1.jpg, Image:Katherine2.jpg, and Image:Katherine3.jpg as copyright violations but didn't explain why, or provide a link to the originals. Can you elaborate? If you aren't sure, I would suggest nominating them for deletion and seeing what others think. LtPowers 15:16, 24 August 2010 (EDT)
