Commons:Mobile access/Mobile upload needing check

BackgroundEdit

 
Mobile uploads: junk ratio

After long discussions, uploads to Commons through the mobile/web interface have been turned off on . Reason for this was the enormous amount of copyright violations and useless files uploaded throught this channel, with a peak of 100% junk on . Lots of these junk files were being discovered through recent uploads patrolling and subsequently deleted. However, the portion of copyright violations and out-of-scope files among the remaining mobile uploads is still high. Since we don't have to deal with new mobile uploads at the moment, we should now have a bit of extra time to go through all the remaining files previously uploaded from a mobile device again. This is also a great opportunity to add some Categories and clean up the file description pages of the "good" uploads.

How to checkEdit

  1. pick a date from the list by clicking on the link to the mobile upload log
  2. check every file not yet deleted for:
    1. copyright violations
    2. Commons:SCOPE
  3. mark inappropriate files for deletion
  4. while you're at it: ideally clean up the remaining files concerning
    1. categories
    2. descriptions
    3. date= field (if missing, put in {{According to EXIF}} or {{Original upload date}})
  5. make your way through the list by clicking on older 50 until you reach the previous day
  6. when finished with a day, mark it as done (using {{done}} --~~~~)
  •   Attention: Most of the very obvious cases have probably already been taken care of, so please take your time to do this thoroughly.
  • It may be a good idea to mark the day's log you are currently working on to avoid two people working on the same day. You can do this by putting something like {{On hold|I'll have this done by Tuesday}} --~~~~ next to the day's entry in the list
  • If you come across single files you are unsure about, list them below the day's entry in the list to get a second opinion

useful gadgetsEdit

Here are some tools (Preferences → Gadgets) that might help you reviewing files:

  • Pretty log: Adds thumbnails to the log pages.
  • Quick Delete: Adds useful links to tag files as missing source/license/permission or for deletion, and notify users accordingly
  • Tineye tab: On File pages, adds a new tab to easily search for similar images on the Internet using Tineye.
  • GoogleImages tab: On File pages, adds a new tab to easily search for similar images on the Internet using Google Images.

Probably OK, but if someone cares to check:

Starting May 8, 2014 mobile/web uploads were scrutinized shortly after the upload. There should not be many problem cases left in the logs below; but they may still need categorization, moving to better names, improving the description, and other cleanup.
