This is the requests and votes page, a centralized place where you can keep track of ongoing user requests, and where you can comment and leave your vote. Any user is welcome to comment on these requests, and any logged in user is welcome to vote.

When requesting rights that do not need the support of the community (e.g. filemover) please go to Commons:Requests for rights!

How and where to apply for additional user rights on CommonsEdit

How to comment and voteEdit

Any logged-in user is welcome to vote and to comment on the requests below. Votes from unregistered users are not counted, but comments may still be made. If the nomination is successful, a bureaucrat will grant the relevant rights. However, the closing bureaucrat has discretion in judging community consensus, and the decision will not necessarily be based on the raw numbers. Among other things, the closing bureaucrat may take into account the strength of any arguments presented and the experience and knowledge of the commenting users. For example, the comments and votes of users who have zero or few contributions on Commons may at the bureaucrat's discretion be discounted.

It is preferable if you give reasons both for   Support votes or   Oppose ones as this will help the closing bureaucrat in their decision. Greater weight is given to argument, with supporting evidence if needed, than to a simple vote.

Requests for permission to run a botEdit

Before making a bot request, please read the new version of the Commons:Bots page. Read Commons:Bots#Information on bots and make sure you have added the required details to the bot's page. A good example can be found here.

When complete, pages listed here should be archived to Commons:Bots/Archive.

Any user may comment on the merits of the request to run a bot. Please give reasons, as that makes it easier for the closing bureaucrat. Read Commons:Bots before commenting.

    • Curation of these image pages to fix minor errors (e.g. missing descriptions) introduced due to parsing of inconsistent source HTML.

Automatic or manually assisted: Automatic (but manually checked for the first ~50)

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): Multiple individual runs.

Maximum edit rate (e.g. edits per minute): 5 per minute, but starting slower.

Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y

Programming language(s): Python

DiscussionEdit

Test run tonight, if there are no objections. Storkk (talk) 11:40, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

I've started the test. I've had to add {{LicenseReview}} to get around Special:AbuseFilter/156... but unfortunately the NFC website is down at the moment, so the license cannot be independently checked. Storkk (talk) 21:52, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
An error where descriptions were occasionally appended was fixed. Storkk (talk) 22:13, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
The preliminary run has now completed. Storkk (talk) 22:37, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
Please use language templates for textual data in {{Information}}. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:56, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
I've used VFC to wrap the English description for the files already uploaded, and will amend the bot to do the same. I've left {{NFC fruit}} outside, since it ideally will be internationalized separately. What is the procedure now? Should I perform another test run? Storkk (talk) 15:14, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: I've done a small additional run now. I have also incorporated adding the |other versions= parameter where appropriate. Storkk (talk) 19:29, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
I've added a subtask that I'd also like to request permission for. The source pages have a slightly inconsistent structure, and it would be easiest to correct that with a subsequent run of the same bot. Storkk (talk) 10:20, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
Author field should be wrapped into language template too. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:26, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
I can of course do this if it is helpful, but I don't remember ever seeing the author field wrapped in a language template. Are you sure I should do this? I understand why you might want to do this for authors where the name is descriptive rather than "official" in some sense, but I'm not sure (either way) whether "National Fruit Collection" should be translated into other languages. Would "XYZ Metropolitan Museum" require translation? Storkk (talk) 13:22, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
