Re: [Wikimediaindia-l] [Wikimedia-in-WB] Kolkata Photo Walk (Esplanade Dalhousie)

2011-12-23 Thread wheredevelsdare

Thanks for bringing this up Ashwin (and for the detailed feedback). If the 
images are not named properly, people will not be able to recognise them, which 
makes the whole exercise useless.

Can I suggest, now that the images have been uploaded such, the uploaders 
update the image summary with details of each image, so that people outside 
Kolkata can identify images and use them where required.

 Dalhousie)

Hi,

First of all many thanks to our Calcutta brethren  for conducting this photo 
walk and many thanks for uploading the images to Commons. Such events will 
greatly help our country's herittage buildings, architecture, landmarks etc be 
preserved.


After trying a quick  dirty look up with the results of your wonderful event,  
some points come to mind.

1. NAMING OF IMAGES - . The images with building names included in name are 
very useful  easily locatable


eg : 
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Aayakar_Bhawan_-_Kolkata_2011-12-18_0067.JPG

Images named in the following manner are not at all useful to find the building 
concerned


eg : File:Wikimedia_Photowalk_-_Kolkata_2011-12-18_(32).JPG

especially since about 150 of these are so named.

2. CATEGORISATION - Images need to be categorised otherwise the images cannot 
be located/used by those who dont know where to look for them.


3. ARTICLE USAGE - Tried to see what has stubs/images on English Wikipedia  -

1. Shahid Minar - No link. [[Shaheed Minar]] of Bangladesh not India
2. Metropolitan Building - [[Metropolitan Building (Minneapolis0]] not Kolkata

3. Tipu Sultan Mosque - [[Tipu Sultan Mosque]], image already available
4. Victoria House - no article
5. Statesman House - no article but an image may be added (when located) to 
[[The_Statesman]]


6. Aaykar Bhawan - no stub
7. Great Eastern Hotel - can be added to 
[[Places_of_interest_in_Kolkata#Historic_hotels]]
8. Central Telegraph Office - page for CTO Colombo  London but not for Mumbai 
 Kolkata

9. National Assurance Building - no building
10. Junior Staff Quarters of the Governor11. Raj Bhawan - can be added to 
[[Raj_Bhavan_(West_Bengal)]]

12. St. John's Church - Meerut  Secunderabad pictured for India only
13. General Post Office - can be added to [[General_Post_Office,_Kolkata]]
14. Kolkata Collectorate - no article

15. Writers' Building - [[Writers'_Building]]
16. St. Andrews Chapel - no article

4. STUB IMPROVEMENT - Many buildings have no stubs. These need to be made. 
Others need references, geo-code, images, etc.


Hope this feedback is useful in some way.
Warm regards,

Ashwin Baindur

Just went through the pictures. There are so many wonderful images from the 
firewood seller to the sugar cane juice machine to the road-side shave to the 
wonderful stained glass inside of St John to Kolkata's delightfully quaint 
trams!  

Thank you so much!

I am guessing the thank you should be directed to everyone in this image 
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikimedia_Photowalk_-_Kolkata_2011-12-18_0009.JPG
 (and the photographer who took it!)  You all look like you had a wonderful

There's something cooking in the West Bengal community and it tastes sweet as 
sandesh!

 Just went through the pictures. There are so many wonderful images from the

 wonderful stained glass inside of St John to Kolkata's delightfully quaint

 Thank you so much!
 
 I am guessing the thank you should be directed to everyone in this image
