SpBot archives all sections tagged with {{Section resolved|1=~~~~}} after 1 day. URL changesEdit

The website changed their URL structure and broke >250 links.

  • 201 images link to it as source, all links are broken but could be fixed like that:[a-z0-9]+).html ->$1/
  • 61 images also link to the image directly, pattern here: -> (changed subdomain and /archives/)

Can some bot fix those links please? --mfb (talk) 23:58, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

@Mfb: I think I got them all, except in the original upload log. Did sample a few leftovers only, tho. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 12:26, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Some are left, e. g. File:Altair-Tarazed-heic0720c.jpg. The search function finds 34 and 43, respectively, I don't know how many of them are due to cache issues. --mfb (talk) 12:49, 2 December 2016 (UTC)


Bonjour, Je recherche un dresseur de bot pour ajouter ceci :


This image shows a flag, a coat of arms, a seal or some other official insignia. The use of such symbols is restricted in many countries. These restrictions are independent of the copyright status.

Sur les images contenues dans les catégories suivantes : Category:Military insignia of France

Est ce possible ? Merci d'avance Oursmili (talk) 19:59, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

  Done for files with permission= (and similar) in the information template. Files without need to be done manually. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 14:10, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Comparison of file versionsEdit

Commons needs a bot which will find all overwritten images, download each image version for a file and check by color format, scheme how different are those images. An automatic log with results should be published somewhere on a public place here on Commons to let users analyze it for these files is needed a file_history split or to hide an older version. There are many cases when newly uploaded version of an image is absolutely different or unrelated to the old version. --XXN, 11:41, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
