Commons Batch Uploading is a project to centralize the uploading of a collection of files, that have released their work as PD or any Commons compatible license. The files would be assigned to a bot operator who would see how the request would be fulfilled. (To upload batches from Flickr, please make requests on Commons:Flickr batch uploading)

Before you request a batch upload here, please read the guide to batch uploading first.

See w:Wikipedia:Public domain image resources for potential future batch uploads.

Illustrations of Vietnamese cash coins from Ed Toda's "Annam and its minor currency".Edit

I would like to request these bots to fetch all images and their related text from Ed Toda’s Annam and its minor currency, I really would like to do this myself only I have very little experience uploading files from public domain, and I have extremely little free time at hand and the images almost number in 300. 😅 Now I really wouldn't request this here if I thought that I had many other options so here it goes...

Sent from my Microsoft Lumia 950 XL with Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile 📱.

I plan on using all of these in the Wikipedia article “Vietnamese cash”, so I do have an immediate usage for them. I hope that these ideas 💡 are plausible. 🙇🏻

  • Source to upload from:

Ed. Toda.’s Annam and its minor currency hosted on Art-Hanoi, a website operated by Sema (known on Wikipedia as @Pyvanet~commonswiki:).

    • Do the media URLs follow a pattern?

11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21(, and technically ALL coins here).

Do not copy after 21 as page 22 is originally created by Sema himself, though Sema did create the Wikipedia article I wish to add these to, and he did wish to upload them himself he eventually gave up on doing it as too many of his files of more recent South-Vietnamese banknotes got deleted, I would request these separately from him but a ticket 🎟 would have to be fetched, and it should be more clearly discriminated as more recent currencies may violate Vietnamese copyright ©.

    • Does the site have an API?

Not that I’m aware of.

    • What else could ease uploading? (is the site valid XHTML, do they use a WCM…?)
    • Did you contact the site owner?

Yes, I did though the other images would have to be uploaded by himself, these however are the images of Ed. Toda and are mere scans thus do not go over the threshold of originality, and are in public domain.

Note 📝: The owner really does want his content here but quit here after some of his images got deleted due to Vietnamese copyright © laws.

For context: this page describes the scans in detail and is entitled “Read this first”.

  • Describe the works to be uploaded in detail (audio files, images by …):

The files are all images (scans) from Eduardo Toda’s 1882 book 📚 “Annam and its minor currency”, the authoritive English-language “classic” on Vietnamese cash coins prior to its publication going in full detail on the history, and circumstances (both economically wth resource management as well cultural with various “religious” (read: Superstitious) reasoning behind the content of the alloys), the descriptions of the coins should also be uploaded (further below), all of these files are hand-drawn Vietnamese (Annamese/Annamite) cash coins, though they are somewhat factually inaccurate due to them only following a single Chinese calligraphic style. They are all images from the same book and number exactly at --- images.

How the files should be organised:

The files themselves should all be named “Toda Nr.[number]” and then if possible their inscription in Chinese characters. The description below the files could be like exempli gratia title = “Toda No. 1. 太平興寶“ description is “Quote: “ (Barker: 1.6-1.16) Obverse: 太平興寶 Thai-binh-hung-bao. Reverse: The character 丁 Dinh, the name of the Dynasty.” - Ed Toda, Annam and its minor currency, 1882” Maybe again with a link 🔗 to the appropriate page. It should copy all the text until the next image, it should not any text before that chapter’s first image. Even long text should be copied as these illustrations mostly rely on their context.

With “the appropriate page” I mean that if it were ploaded from “http://art-hanoi.com/toda/15.html” then that specific link 🔗 should be listed as “the source”.

Where white-spaces exist between paragraphs “
” could (or should) be added.

The files should be made in a new category called “Category:Illustrations from Annam and its minor currency by Ed Toda” which in itself falls under “Category:Coins of Vietnam”, and “Category:Eduard Toda”.

  • Which license tag(s) should be applied?

The license that should be applied is “

 

The author died in 1941, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 75 years or less.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1923.

This file has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.

” as the book was published in Shanghai (though the writer is Hispanic ABD/and if it were published in Spain the copyright © would still be valid until 2022, but it completely falls outside of this in both Chinese, and U.S. American law).

Each file should contain at the author “Eduardo Toda y Güell (though Dr. R. Allan Barker, “the Qui-Gon Jinn of Vietnamese cash coins” hypothesises that Toda’s wife drew them)” (I put a part in there as I'm a joker 🃏), or on a more serious note “Eduardo Toda y Güell (though Dr. R. Allan Barker hypothesises that Toda’s wife drew them)” as the authorship isn't 100% known, while the source should list their appropriate page at “Art-Hanoi” a website operated by Sema (known on Wikipedia as @Pyvanet~commonswiki:) for appropriate attribution.

How and where I would use these images on WikipediaEdit

For how I would use these images please see w:nl:Gebruiker:Donald Trung/Lijst van Vietnamese kèpèngs (geïdentificeerde munten) where I plan on adding an illustration next to the mentioned coin where applicable, and users can see more information ℹ on the coins by clicking on the images, and next to the Toda illustrations I would add an actual photograph of the coin (if they are available on Wikimedia Commons, which most unfortunately aren't). --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) ("The Chinese Coin Troll" 👿) (Articles 📚) 11:32, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Why this book (and its illustrations) are (still) importantEdit

The text itself is public domain and according to the Numismatic Bibliomania Society this book is still considered to be the main English language reference when dealing with Vietnamese cash coins.

“The E-Sylum: Volume 9, Number 47, November 19, 2006, Article 13. ONLINE BOOK: ANNAM AND ITS MINOR CURRENCY BY ED. TODA”

“Regarding last week's featured website (art-hanoi.com/collection), Dave Kellogg writes: "I know of a related website that I could not reach through the link above. It is an on-line copy of Ed Toda's book (1882) on ancient Annamese (Vietnamese) cash coins. It contains an interesting coin identifier feature which is a huge help for those of us who are marginally illiterate with Chinese characters. Here it is: coin identifier"

This book 📖 is still used a lot for novice Annamese (Vietnamese) cash coin collectors. The webite where I want to upload these images from operated by Sema (or Pyvanet~commonswiki) is the only online host I could find for this book 📖, of someone wants to know the coding of the website I’m sure that they could ask him. My experiences with him have been positive so far so I think that if the batch scripter wants the necessary code to script on then they could easily ask Sema.

“[The book is titled ANNAM AND ITS MINOR CURRENCY. From the web page: "This book written over 100 years ago still remains the main reference for all collectors of Vietnamese cash coins." -Editor]”

Annam and its minor currency 💲 has been used as the main English language reference for over a century, and I’m sure that these illustrations will be very useful for this subject. Even if the images won't immediately be used on Wikipedia it would still be of great educational value for Wikimedia Commons to host them.

“Dave adds: "That web page statement, "remains the main reference", is a bit of an exaggeration. That would have been true a couple of years ago if it said, "in English". There are some French references with an excellent reputation. Then, in 2004 Barker published Part 1 of what will undoubtedly become the definitive English reference. Nevertheless, Toda's on-line copy is still really helpful, and readers should know of it. Perhaps, it is still the main reference in that more people have access to it."

- © Wayne Homren, Editor”

So this book 📖 is no longer the main English language reference, but unlike Barker’s this is in public domain. There are indeed a lot of French language books 📚 that are superior to Toda’s Annam and its minor currency, however I do not have any (online) access to those, nor do I know which one of those are in the public domain. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) ("The Chinese Coin Troll" 👿) (Articles 📚) 09:42, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

ExamplesEdit

An example of all coins from the first page would be like this:

Toda No. 1 太平興寶

Description
English: No. 1. (Barker: 1.6-1.16)

Obverse: 太平興寶 Thai-binh-hung-bao.

Reverse: The character 丁 Dinh, the name of the Dynasty.
Date
Source Annam and its minor currency (Art-Hanoi)
Author Eduardo Toda y Güell

Toda No. 2 太平興寶

Description
English: No. 2. (Barker: 1.17-1.19)

Obverse: same as before. Reverse: plain. Coins made by the king 先皇 TIEN-HOANG. White copper. Note: Though the reign title was 太平, all coins actually bear the legend 大平興寶 instead of 太平興寶 as it was stated in the original Toda's book. The former 黎 Le Dynasty. - 981-1010. General LE-HOAN ascended the throne under the name of 天福 THIEN-PHUOC, and, following the policy initiated by his predecessor, secured peace on the frontiers by successful wars against China and Ciampa.

His son and successor, called LONG-VIET, was murdered by his brother 臥朝 NGOA-TRIEU, three days after he had come to power. This prince, whose conduct was extremely cruel and bad, soon afterwards proclaimed himself king and committed every kind of excess and crime, inventing new tortures and ruining the country in every way. With his death the LE Dynasty came to an end.
Date
Source Annam and its minor currency (Art-Hanoi)
Author Eduardo Toda y Güell

Toda No. 3 天福鎮寶

Description
English: No. 3. (Barker: 2.1-2.7)

Obverse: 天福鎮寶 Thien-phuc-tran-bao, or provincial coin of Thien-phuoc. At that time, as some fifty years before in China, the provinces of Annam were called 鎮 TRAN.

Reverse: The character 黎 LE, the name of the Dynasty.
Date

Author Eduardo Toda y Güell

Toda No. 4 黎

Description
English: No. 4. (Barker: none)

Obverse: Only the character 黎 LE in the lower part of the square hole. Reverse: plain.

The above two coins were cast in the 5th moon of the 5th year of 大行 DAI-HANH (986). They were made principally of white copper, and are rather smaller than the ordinary Chinese cash.

I hope that these examples are clear enough for any potential scripters, if asked I will try to make them more “upload-friendly”.   😉.

Sent 📩 from my Microsoft Lumia 950 XL with Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile 📱. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) ("The Chinese Coin Troll" 👿) (Articles 📚) 09:42, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

In case any scripter thinks that importing the text is too difficult they could just import the images and the titles could just be "Toda No. [X]" and I will manually request these images to be renamed and I will manually add the descriptions and organise these images per dynasty. The scripter would only have to create Category:Illustrations from Annam and its minor currency and I will manually add sub categories based on dynasties and chapters. I have no issue with organising, I just can't import these images via my cell.-phone without manually having to download every individual picture and then manually uploading them one for one. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) ("The Chinese Coin Troll" 👿) (Articles 📚) 10:00, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

An alternative proposalEdit

If the request is too difficult any scripter can upload the images like the following:

Toda No. 1

Description
English: Illustration from Annam and its minor currency.
Date
Source Annam and its minor currency (Art-Hanoi)
Author Eduardo Toda y Güell

This file has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.

Category:Illustrations from Annam and its minor currency

I will then manually add more informative descriptions, and will create subcategories such as Category:Illustrations from Annam and its minor currency (Ðinh Dynasty) to Category:Illustrations from Annam and its minor currency (Nguyễn Dynasty). Just make the code as easy as possible, and I'll do the rest of the work, my only issue here is that I don’t have a desktop computer 🖥 so I can’t run the script myself.

@Guanaco: There is a lot of copyrighted material within these images, e.g. [1] [2]. (Just because this is a U.S. government web site this does not mean all the material is U.S. government material and by this means freely usable!) Actually I have not found too many images that really can be used (e.g. [3]). You should at least provide a procedure how to distinguish between copyrighted and free material. --Reinhard Kraasch (talk) 11:02, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

US National ArchivesEdit

I am hoping to begin a bulk upload of media from the US National Archives in the next few weeks. This will be a very different approach from the first upload, which was based on uploading files from an offline drive and scraping HTML for the metadata. This time around, NARA has an API for our online catalog, and so I am building a bot, using mwclient, to upload using the live metadata and files from the API. Some details:

Dataset

The dataset includes all PD materials at https://catalog.archives.gov (API: https://catalog.archives.gov/api/v1). I plan to begin with a series of ~100,000 WWI-era photos. Technically, there are over 15 million files (and counting) in this dataset.

File names

The script is currently configured to name files with the formula: For single-page items:

  • "File:[TITLE] - NARA - [NAID].ext"
    Where "[TITLE]" is the catalog record's title field, and "[NAID]" is the National Archives Identifier. If this is over the character limit, "[TITLE]" is automatically truncated, with "(...)" appended.

For multi-page items (since the above formula would give all files belonging to one catalog record the same title):

  • "File:[TITLE] - NARA - [NAID] (page X).ext"
Metadata

We are developing a custom metadata mapping, since NARA does not adhere to a metadata standard. You can see the metadata template we use here: {{NARA-image-full}}. Some notes:

While all the records in this catalog come from NARA or partner institutions, there are many different facility locations, and some NARA facilities have their own institutions templates already (e.g. US presidential libraries). Therefore, I am creating institution templates to go along with all NARA locations, and the script will insert the correct institution template based on a mapping.

NARA's authority file is not yet mapped to Wikidata, however that is definitely something that would be useful in the future. For now, we will upload files with NARA's creator and author names and their NAIDs and links back to the catalog authority record. However, including the NAIDs in a Commons template field means that in the future, Wikidata could be used to make creator templates appear instead. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Licenses

Because NARA records are nearly all (>99%) derived from the records of US federal agencies, these uploads will use {{PD-USGov}} or its subtemplates. Most NARA records are in one of about 600 record groups based on their creating agency, so I am using a mapping of NARA record groups to Commons PD-USGov templates so that the bot can apply the more specific agency templates in most cases. Help filling out this mapping would be appreciated.

Nearly all holdings of the US National Archives are in the public domain as a work of the federal government (or, otherwise, due to age). This is marked in the "use restriction" field in the catalog, with a value of "Unrestricted" indicating public domain determination by the archivists. Therefore, the script will be configured to skip over any records in which the use restriction is anything other than "unrestricted" (even "possibly" ones, which could ultimately be PD, but need a human determination).

Categories

All uploads will be automatically categorized by the metadata template into Category:Media contributed by the National Archives and Records Administration and a category for the series they belong to (such as Category:US National Archives series: DOCUMERICA: The Environmental Protection Agency's Program to Photographically Document Subjects of Environmental Concern, compiled 1972 - 1977). Eventually, the script will be designed to create the series category if a file is uploaded for a series which does not yet have one.

When it comes to topical categories, past NARA uploads utilized the {{uncategorized}} tag to encourage the community to add topical tags. However, since this creates work for the community, I am planning this time around to run uploads a small batch (hundreds to a few thousand) at a time, so I can upload them with one or more topical categories that apply to all records in the batch, rather than uncategorized.

Code

You can find the upload bot's code at https://github.com/usnationalarchives/wikimedia-upload. This project is being developed in public on NARA's official GitHub account. I would welcome collaboration (pull requests or otherwise) there. In addition, the Commons community is welcome to file issue reports on that repo.

Examples

The most recent test uploads can be viewed in Category:US National Archives series: American Unofficial Collection of World War I Photographs. I am still polishing the upload script, but these examples essentially represent what should be expected from the bot once it gets started.

OpinionsEdit

The bot account is technically already flagged from the last bulk upload a couple of years ago, however I would like to submit the current plan to community review before restarting uploads. If there are any opinions on the bot's design or the format of uploads or other issues, I am happy to hear them. We'd also like to know whether to limit what is uploaded in any way—as in, would Commons actually be interested in 15 million files, or might some of these, like the millions of census cards, not be of interest. Also, if anyone is interested in helping out with the coding or other tasks, please feel free to let me know. This is a big undertaking. Thanks! Dominic (talk) 17:25, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

TrainpixEdit

  • Source to upload from:: http://trainpix.org ;
    • Did you observe an URL pattern:
      — Yes. Each photo from this site has an individual number from 1 to 145250 (last actual number at 11:50, 12 October 2015 (UTC) is 145250) and is available with link like trainpix.org/photo/<number of photo>. To get the direct url of JPG file:
      • prepend number of photo with zeros to get seven-digit number
      • remove the last digit
      • separate first 6 digits with "/" to get three 2-digit numbers
      • insert this numbers between trainpix.org/photo/ and the number without leading zeros, and append .jpg

For example, the direct file link of photo with number 4 (http://trainpix.org/photo/4) is http://trainpix.org/photo/00/00/00/4.jpg ; for photo with number 12345 (http://trainpix.org/photo/12345) is http://trainpix.org/photo/00/12/34/12345.jpg

    • Do you know whether the site has an API — No
    • What else can ease uploading (is the site valid XHTML, WCM they use…)?
    • Did you contact the site owner? — No
  • Describe the works to be uploaded in detail (audio files, images by …):

Trainpix is Russian photo gallery of railway rolling stock (default language is Russian, the site is also available in English, Ukrainian and Belorussian languages). The first string under photo describes the name of rolling stock (model and number), which should be used as name of file on Commons (also it can be appended with number of photo on this site like bot-uploaded photos from Flickr). The second string describes the place where a photo has been taken. The third string describes author's name and date. In the left part of page, each photo has description tag of license (in Russian — Лицензия), including copyright, zero, by, by-sa, by-nc, by-nc-sa, by-nd, by-nc-nd and mark. Any registered user of this site is available to select license in upload form (screenshot), also it includes Please read before license selection hyperlink to page, which describes Creative Commons 3.0 licenses. I am not understand what means mark license (it's description in upload form is No author rights) and is it simillar to Public Domain, but all photographs with free licenses zero, by, and by-sa should be uploaded on Commons. Note that some numbers are deleted photos (example — http://trainpix.org/photo/1/).


  • Which license tag(s) should be applied?
    • {{cc-zero}} — for images with license tag "zero"
    • {{cc-by 3.0}} — for images with license tag "by"
    • {{cc-by-sa 3.0}} — for images with license tag "by-sa"


  • Is there a template that could be used on the file description pages?

No

  • Do you think a special template should be created?

Maybe. Each rail vehicle on this site has description table with registration railway, model, current condition, etc.

RequestEdit


General notesEdit

There was a Wikimedian in Residence over 5 weeks in the summer when some uploads were done. AM blog post

At the time of upload, the API returned 70,789 objects marked with a CCBY license. This resulted in just over 101,000 photographs being uploaded.

Technical notesEdit

Files are in the format File:<title> (AM <accession number>-<sequential image number>).jpg

If there is only one image for the object, then no sequential image number is used. All images are added to a gallery using the "other versions" parameter of the Artwork template. Should any one image fail to load, the gallery will not be fixed automatically.

The API swagger page seems to never have been created, so the API usage is suck-it-and-see. Requests to the API are specified as limited to 1000 per day, though in practice this has yet to be an issue.

The API path discovering URIs for the data needed is:

(search) -> (objects) -> (media or dimensions)

Though the (search) can return many objects, the object requests have to be one at a time. It is unclear if the API throttling actually counts all different types of request.

Searching is arbitrarily chosen to be for 10 100 objects at a time, each object may have many images. In the upload comment the search page, number of object within that page and the sequential number for the image of the object is shown. This is for debugging or restarts, it has no long term value. Using the API search from day to day, appears to return the objects in different orders. It's unclear why this happens, but is probably because the search returns the most recently changed catalogue entries first. This means that re-starting batch upload should be run from the first page, rather than jumping to the last used position.

The API structure is complex, with hierarchical families of relationships. For the most part these appear redundant for Commons' purposes, for example identities of curators or massive detail of material composition, when the descriptive text probably suffices.

Metadata mappingEdit

Date may be difficult to abstract from the metadata. Field names may not be obvious and there is no dictionary to reference, for example "period" precise dates may be estimated even though not marked as such, and "exact" date appears to be used for date of acquisition even when it is against the object "made" metadata. It's not possible to tell if this is by design or practical usage has ended up mapping things differently from the literal descriptions.

Questions may arise from the data parameter including several dates, such as "20th century; 1935-1949; 1996". In these cases the metadata is picking up different ways of describing the object's creation period, plus the year of being donated to the museum is being included, which will always be the most recent year given. For copyright purposes, the earliest definitive date is the most useful, and the most accurate.

Description is based on the object field content and where a note exists against the object, these are added separately. Where the text of an object note exactly matches text in content, it is skipped.

Dimensions were added late in the batch run. These have to be detected as a property of the object, then a dictionary of URIs has to be interrogated. This may add to the API throttle count. Dimensions look like (type, value) where type can be anything like {length, height, note, string of multiple dimensions}.

CopyrightEdit

Should any question of copyright arise, such as when photographs contain other copyright statements (example), it can be confirmed that all files in this batch upload were created by searching the API with the parameter &q=copyright:CC, as discussed in Auckland Museum's API guidelines. This only returns files marked by the museum with a license of "CCBY". Example search link includes "copyright":["© Auckland Museum CC BY"] against each returned object. The copyright metadata is returned in the search returns per object, is not present in the object metadata, but for each media item under the object the rights can be later checked under that media URI, though the request header must set "accept" to "application/json" to get the metadata rather than the image; free plug-ins are available for most browsers to do this.

Example: https://api.aucklandmuseum.com/id/media/v/79416/rights returns:

{
"am:record_score" : [ {
    "type" : "int",
    "value" : "0"
  } ],
  "rdf:type" : [ {
    "type" : "uri",
    "value" : "ecrm:E30_Rights"
  } ],
  "rdf:value" : [ {
    "type" : "string",
    "value" : "© Auckland Museum CC BY"
  } ]
}

Some objects returned include modern era works, such as lacework, toys or clothing. Though the photograph is CC-BY, it is possible that some of these will have sufficient artwork content to be counted as non-utilitarian objects and potentially be copyrightable, at which point copyright can often be determined by age. Relevant guidelines are Threshold of originality and Copyright rules by subject matter.

Most modern objects appear to be mass produced design rather than drawings or other art. It is presumed that files selected by the museum do not represent any obvious copyright issue, including photographs of objects from the 1960s or later. Initial uploads show some images will be problematic under Commons' policies, for example modern political badges with drawings or product labels later than the 1940s with potentially copyrighted imagery. As these appear to be at the level of less than 1% of uploads, and not obvious from searching metadata at source, they can be weeded out as housekeeping. Uploading the files to Commons poses no risk to the uploader, host or reuser, as relying on the demonstrably good accuracy of prior publication by the museum, backed up both by volunteer manual review and a procedure for responding to take down requests, meets the legal sense of having taken reasonable precaution for respecting potential copyright claims; naturally this explanation is not legal advice.

Copyright housekeepingEdit

A retrospective (slow) housekeeping job is checking specific image rights (rather than just the object rights), taking action on those that do not explicitly match "CC BY". The rights statements are not of a predictable format, as the entry appears to be free text and may include typos. Actions are:

  1. Add Category:Images from Auckland Museum marked as copyright undetermined to files with rights of "Copyright undetermined - untraced rights owner" or similar.
  2. Add Category:Images from Auckland Museum marked with cultural permissions to files marked with "Cultural Permissions".
  3. Add Category:Images from Auckland Museum marked with All Rights Reserved to files marked "All Rights Reserved".

In theory this extra copyright check could happen at upload, but the potential discrepancy between the object level metadata being CC BY while individual photographs of the object may have a different copyright was raised late in the upload. The numbers involved appear to be under 1% and most of those still have an appropriate copyright release for Wikimedia Commons, so the batch upload is completing in a consistent way, then checks are run as housekeeping, possibly raising non-controversial speedy deletions as needed.

Reference deletion requestsEdit
Failure typesEdit
  • Image not retrievable, e.g. http://api.aucklandmuseum.com/id/media/v/390708 gives Error 500. Image is skipped after failing.
  • Page not found, e.g. http://api.aucklandmuseum.com/id/humanhistory/object/15043 gives Error 400, skipped.
  • No am:accessionNumber found. Accession number is replaced with the database object number. As accession numbers always appear to have periods, this should not lead to any confusion. The root cause is likely to be that the object is in a non-AM collection, in these cases the am:creditLine gives more detail on alternate collection reference numbers.
  • Blank images exist, such as http://api.aucklandmuseum.com/id/media/v/358003. These are detected and skipped if the object has one image and the image is 800x800 (the default blank card size).
  • Corrupt downloads. Due to the way a header field needs to be passed to the API with any image download request, a custom method in Python of opening the file has been used, which is less reliable for larger binary files than using Python's urlretrieve module. In a handful of cases this unexpectedly led to partly corrupted downloads, missing some of the last sets of pixels. This might have been an intermittent issue with a poor home internet connection. An additional test which "looks" at the last row of the downloaded image is used (relying on PIL modules), and reattempts download a few times which should stop this recurring.
HousekeepingEdit

Due to the varied nature of failure types, rather than working out where images are failing to be uploaded before adding predicted galleries to image pages, a housekeeping process goes through the collection looking for broken links. When these are in a gallery, and the image was uploaded at least a day ago, the link is removed. Example diff.

CategoriesEdit

The main/bucket category is Category:Images from Auckland Museum where the institution template is displayed and sub-categories are added.

Type category

New categories are created based on the object type. Examples:

Some of these may turn out to be not great, but it's a starting point.

Date category

Where the date fields include "19th century" or some other match to the regular expression "\d?\d(st|th) century", then a century category of the format Category:19th century in Auckland Museum is added. As the date fields are flexibly used, this will miss many items with periods or ranges, such as "George V (1910 - 1936)/House of Windsor/English reign".

When a date field matches a decade, like 1850s, or another match to "\d{4}s", then a decade category of the form Category:1850s in Auckland Museum is added. These are initially placed in the top category, but should be manually moved under the century as they arise.

ProgressEdit

Assigned to Progress Bot name Category
  • 24 Nov 2017 Started
  • 26 Nov 2017 Metadata usage improved, such as date categories, credit line and dimensions. Not retrospective.
  • 6 Dec 2017 Housekeeping of broken links in galleries created.
  • 7 Dec 2017 Change to 100 objects per page rather than 10, speeding up re-starts after recent outage problems with WMF servers.
  • 10 Dec 2017
    • Where a value is set for am:onDisplayFlag, this is taken as current display location and shown under exhibition history.
    • Restarts now jump to results page rather than iterating through them. It presumes returned pages are always the expected perpage value.
  • 17 Jan 2017 Upload run complete. There are remaining doubts about whether some images are individually marked with a NC restriction which is not apparent at the 'object' level license, this may require later housekeeping.
    • Housekeeping based on rights metadata started, but paused while a better re-run of the upload completes.
