You broke CroptoolEdit

Your recent update forces users to the "Authorization required " window when trying to crop images even though the tool has been given authorization already and repeatedly ....--Stemoc (talk) 00:25, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

@Stemoc: But it works after you re-authorized, right? Re-authorization was needed because the scope of the tool was extended from Commons to all Wikimedia projects. – Danmichaelo (δ) 09:45, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Thats the problem, i have repeatedly authorized it, its just not going to the crop keeps telling me "Authorization required " even though i have repeatedly given it authorization and it appears in my "Managed Apps" section is the web console log for the problem, hope u can make heads or tails out of this..--Stemoc (talk) 12:29, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm forced to manually remove cookies for wmflabs everytime i try to crop an image. it probably does not like firefox browser..the mwkey and mwsecret keys ..the problem maybe "Send For" as the other tools use on wmflabs use "Any type of connection" and your tool uses "Encrypted connections only" --Stemoc (talk) 15:22, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
@Stemoc: Thanks for providing more info. You're right that it's probably related to the cookies. Authorization is stored in those cookies, meaning you should in general only have to re-authorize whenever you loose the cookies, or whenever you use a new browser or computer. I'm still a bit confused. I've tested with Firefox, and it works for me. You do use the tool with https, right? I noticed that the automatic redirect from http to https does not work now. And do you have to re-authorize each time you want to crop a file, or each time you restart the browser? And this began after the update? – Danmichaelo (δ) 15:40, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Btw. I fixed a http→https redirect now. It's quite important since the cookies are not available unless you use https. – Danmichaelo (δ) 15:45, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Its working now, thanks..I love the tool, probably the only one who uses it the most :P --Stemoc 01:29, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
@Stemoc: Great to hear, also that you love the tool :) – Danmichaelo (δ) 15:06, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

By the way, Croptool appears to be broken again. Specifically, it turns up an error when you try to go to the authorization page. G S Palmer (talk) 15:50, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

@G S Palmer: Thanks for notifying me! There had been a change in the OAuth service I was not aware of. Authorization should work again now.. – Danmichaelo (δ) 23:28, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Yep, working fine. G S Palmer (talk) 14:40, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dan. This tool's been broken for me for a while, and seems to be due to this OAth issue - it just keeps kicking me back to the authorisation page after clicking Connect. I can't remember if I've ever had it working using OAuth, but I've definitely had other tools work that use it. I've tried deleting cookies, and checking/unchecking in Gadgets. I'm using chrome, and it all appears to be using https throughout the sequence. Any suggestions? It's a great tool btw, I can't imagine going back to the manual method now. I do have one suggestion though - is it possible to add Template:Image extracted to the donor file? Ultra7 (talk) 18:57, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

@Ultra7 The tool's been using OAuth right since it launched, but you're perhaps refering to CropBot, which the tool is inspired by? Anyways, thanks for letting me know about the problem. I'm not really sure where to start looking though. If you go to Special:OAuthManageMyGrants, do you see CropTool listed? Version 1.2? If you see it listed, you could try to recall it, although I don't really expect that to help.. – Danmichaelo (δ) 19:08, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
No, definitely CropTool. It was listed as 1.2, I removed and re-authorised, but no change. It definitely stopped working for me about a month ago - I didn't do anything about it at the time as I thought it would be back up later, and I wasn't needing to do much cropping at the time. Ultra7 (talk) 21:01, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dan, seems like the same bug, asks for authorization everytime i try to use it..i use the tool on https but i use wikimedia on http, can you fix it again please?..I'm your biggest (non-paying :P) client :P--Stemoc 00:39, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Man montageEdit

I notice that the grid with pictures of men on the page Man contains no pictures of transgender men, which could be taken to bolster the incorrect idea that such men are not "real" men. I also see that the grid contains a picture of Vitruvian Man which is also shown in the body of the article. Does it need to be shown twice? I thought it could be replaced with a picture of a transgender man. I would suggest Chaz Bono but I am open to other suggestions. I know the grid can't contain examples of every type of man, but I think an example of a transgender man is especially important because some deny such men are men at all, and we don't want to seem to be in favor of that idea. I suggested this on the talk page for Man and got no objections. I can't change the grid myself because I don't know how, so would you mind doing it? Thank you.

Seems reasonable! There you go: File:Men montage 2.jpg. I've also commented on the discussion page at enwp. – Danmichaelo (δ) 22:05, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
