Add project template to filesEdit


I would like to request bot work. I need to add {{Mediagrant 2018|Foto českých obcí}} below the Information template in files from these categories, where Atelerixx is uploader:

I am redirected here from Commons:Administrators' noticeboard#Autopatrolled. Thanks!--Marek Preis (talk) 18:49, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

@Marek Preis: I can't read Czech, but it would help if you could explain (link) why {{Mediagrant 2018|Foto českých obcí}} needs to be added. (so whoever does it can verify it's the right thing to do) - Alexis Jazz ping plz 19:29, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
It would also help to know why you are making this request.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 19:43, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: for now I just ran it (so it's   Done), 148 files were affected and it can be undone if it turns out it was wrong. @Marek Preis: for future requests please provide more information. Also, you can run VisualFileChange yourself. You don't need autopatrol. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 19:50, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: Thanks. What strings did you use?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 20:30, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: I replaced "=={{int:license-header}}==" with "{{Mediagrant 2018|Foto českých obcí}} =={{int:license-header}}==". (and some newlines) I checked a dozen files before running it and examined my contributions afterwards. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 20:55, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: 1) I am sorry Alexis Jazz, next time I will provide further explanation. Atelerixx (images uploader and author) request to cover some expenses of picture taking to Mediagrant. Mediagrant rules (#3) requires the use of project template. I help Atelerixx and other new users with this process. 2) I dont know, how to run VisualFileChange.js, I have tryed several options to install it and none of them worked. --Marek Preis (talk) 21:26, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: As I told to Alexis Jazz, Atelerixx and others are new, so I am helping them. I was trained for that.--Marek Preis (talk) 21:26, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz, Marek Preis: Thank you both.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 22:00, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Panoramio upload bot post processingEdit

For a better finding and categorizing of images uploaded by User:Panoramio upload bot I propose a bot run for all files located in Category:Panoramio files uploaded by Panoramio upload bot. The primary job is

Complemental minor changes are recommendable:

  • replacing template {{Taken on}} (exact day of shooting is needed) with {{According to Exif data}}; for many images nobody can trust on the date given in the exif-data, particularly it's given the local time and not UTC time (the date can beeing different by one day); some panoramio users didn't take the trouble to adjust the camera's system time, often (but not always) identifiable by the value january 1st
  • replacing underscores with spaces in the string "Category:Panoramio files uploaded by Panoramio_upload_bot"
  • possibly looking for and removing invisible misplaced LTR marks within category names

Bot to license review videos imported from YouTubeEdit

Category:License review needed has been flooded with thousands of videos imported from YouTube. Someone should write a bot to review them all so that we can get this category back to a manageable state. Pinging Bryan and Zhuyifei1999 in case they can help. Kaldari (talk) 02:38, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

The thing that makes auto-LR videos complicated is there is no easy way to determine if the video on Commons is the same as the video on YouTube. All the image review bots check the file contents match, not just the license, to prevent abuse. But video codecs are lossy and they could well be transcoded... --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 04:16, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

False coordinates - TřeboňEdit

Hi. Please remove {{Location dec|49.228036|14.770572|source:Flickr}} (and replace with {{Location possible}}) for 81 Flickr images of the town of Třeboň by Herbert Frank. The coordinates are completely wrong. --ŠJů (talk) 21:06, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

  Done, removed manually. --ŠJů (talk) 23:16, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
