Done. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:52, 1 September 2016 (UTC)


can someone run Pywikibot on Category:Creator templates with Wikidata link: item missing P1472 and Category:Creator templates with Wikidata link: item missing P373. My version of Pywikibot is out of date, but if nobody can do it I will reinstall. --Jarekt (talk) 13:20, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Doing ( -catr:"Creator_templates_with_Wikidata_link:_item_missing_P1472", ...). --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:39, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
 Thank you that is a big help. We lost 90% of templates in each category. --Jarekt (talk) 15:56, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Run is complete now. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:17, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Redundant templateEdit

A willing user created a nav template for each of the 50 U.S. states and attached it a bit everywhere in the categories related (even where it was not necessary... : ). In particular, in the categories: "people of XXXX county, YYYYY" has included the template "YYYYY counties nav" (where "YYYYYY" is the U.S. state) (see here for an example).

The fact is such template has become redundant because already included in the general template {{people of the United States by county}}.

A bot should remove from the subcategories of the 48 states subdivided in counties (except thus Alaska and Louisiana) the template "YYYY counties nav" (for the abovementioned case, Alabama counties nav). -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 14:18, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Photographs by Dinesh ValkeEdit

Hi, I uploaded images from the flickr user using Flickr2Commons tool and now there is no way for me to track the uploads. Can all the uploads from this user be moved to Category:Photographs by Dinesh Valke? There are over 20,000 images. Is there a quick way? --Sreejith K (talk) 17:31, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

I was able to categorize the first 10,000 files using Cat-a-lot from the search. But the search fails after that. is it a bug? Jee 14:49, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Looks like a bug :/. Doing the rest with a Bot. @Sreejithk2000: I noticed the files don't have a category at all, do you plan to categorize them? --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:15, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Steinsplitter. We'll do the subject categorization as a collective effort, soon. Jee 15:24, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
I enabled auto categories half way through the upload. So some of them have categories and some of them don't. Even for the ones for which the categories were automatically added, there are duplicates or redundant ones. We need category cleanup. I have sent a note to a lot of Wikipedians I know and I am hoping to get some help. --Sreejith K (talk) 18:57, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
