Notes:

Highlight Faves on current page

c=JSON.parse(localStorage.favCache); $('div.thumb')
.each(function(i,e){l=$('a',e).eq(0).attr('href').substr(11); 
if(l in c) $(e).css('box-shadow', '0 0 20px red')})

My botsEdit

I'm the developer/operator of three bots

  • User:QICbot (ec) handles image promotions, tagging, archival, and user notifications at COM:QIC
  • User:VICbot (ec) handles image promotion, tagging, bookkeeping, and user notifications at COM:VIC
  • User:DschwenBot (ec) runs on request and has performed tasks such as
    • extracting GPS coordinates from the EXIF data of uploaded images, and inserting {{Location}} templates.
    • finding uploaded {{geograph}} images without geocoding, fetching the location data from geograph.org.uk, and adding it to the image page.
    • finding animated GIF images and adding them to Category:Animated GIF.
    • maintaining {{LargeImage}} to tag pictures above 50 Megapixels.

Notable scriptsEdit

Commons:WikiMiniAtlasEdit

WMA button2.png Also available on the german, english, portugese, french, polish, and japanese wikipedias. A version for commons, which displays thumbnails of geocoded images on a panable and zoomable world map, has been activated by default for every user.

An off-site demo is available on the toolserver.

Coordinate conversion helperEdit

This little helper assists you in geocoding your images. I like to add a {{Location}} template to my photos, to mark their location with global coordinates.

SlideshowEdit

Another javascript plugin. It adds a full-screen slideshow functionality to all gallery blocks.

Pre-filled Special:Upload descriptionEdit

Tired of always entering the same stuff in Special:Upload Paste the following code into your common.js file (or other MediaWiki skin related file) and customize it:

// Insert a personalized Texttemplate into the Special:Upload edit box.
$(function () {
	var cn = "Some Name";
	if (wgPageName === 'Special:Upload')
		mw.loader.using('moment', function () {
		setTimeout(function () {
			$('#wpUploadDescription').val(
			'{{Information\n'+
			'|Description=\n{{de|}}\n{{en|}}\n'+
			'|Source={{own}}\n'+
			'|Date='+ moment().format('YYYY-M-D') +'\n'+
			'|Author=[[User: '+ wgUserName +']]\n'+
			'|Permission=\n'+
			'|other_versions=\n'+
			'}}\n\n'+
			'== {{int:license-header}} ==\n'+
			'{{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-3.0|author=I, [[User:'+ wgUserName +'|'+ cn +']]}}'
			);
		}, 100 );
	});
	else
		$('#n-uploadbtn>a').attr('href','//commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Upload&uselang='+
		((wgUserLanguage === 'en')?'': wgUserLanguage) + 'ownwork');
});

Note: the license IDs were changed recently. Please update the line with licensemenu.value = accordingly. --Dschwen 16:28, 7 February 2007 (UTC), and again --Dschwen 10:04, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Geo-data ExtrationEdit

Sourcecode for geo-data extration from commons database dumps and readily extracted location data files can be found on my toolserver page.
