xls summaryEdit

Hi, I want to point out that with my very very new PC with Windows 10 and office package, the downloaded xls files is unusable, because the columns do not discriminate the data, it is all one row as text. On my old MAC with an old MS office package, no problem! The table is very clear, the name of files and the data of each jurors on one column, as it should be.--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:42, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

@Yarl: is this related to front-end? --LilyOfTheWest (talk) 18:38, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

@Alexmar983: is this problem resolved? and are you not just confusing xls and csv? Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 16:28, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
ok it's still the same with the new software updates and I know the difference between xls and csv, I am saying that when I open with MS Excell on both compute the same file on one computer (MAC, old MS package) it opens me the file in a way I can read, on Windows 10 it does not. Now I simply always used it on one computer and I paid no particular attention to it, besides telling you. Also, of all the possible problems of confusing xls and csv file, such as for example not saving additional data sheet put in the same file, or not saving color background of cells, I have never heard of such problem of format. Shouldn't they both read cells and rows as cells and rows? That's the basic part of the data sheet.--Alexmar983 (talk) 18:56, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

By the way it seems fine with two LibreOffice from two different people I know. In that case they also read the farsi and Cyrillic script.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:26, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

I had some similar issues in the past. For me the trick was to not open the file directly, but open a blank sheet, and then 'import' the csv with the correct settings (you have to select the right character set etc). This may be dependent on your packages' default settings, which may be different on Windows and your old mac. Effeietsanders (talk) 15:01, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
I run into the same problem. It's not related to the tool, but instead, to how Excel handles csv files. I uploaded it on to Google Spreadsheet and it worked fine. Alhen .::··¨ 13:07, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

The national team will also have there own jury process.I would like set up for the international process and national process. Please advise --Erinamukuta (talk) 07:25, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Erinamukuta, do you need it already now, or after March 15? --Alexander 08:14, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Alexander, i need it --Erinamukuta (talk) 12:54, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Erinamukuta, here you go. --Alexander 13:57, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Alexander, can i add more than one category from Wikimedia Commons for the same round e.g images from x, images from y --Erinamukuta (talk) 09:49, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

No, I don't think so. You will have to make a list of files from both categories and load the files through the list. --Alexander 09:55, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Alexander, when i upload my csv (url,filename,username) the number of files are not reflected when i add round one. what should be the formart of csv. please not i saved the csv on my google drive and pasted the shared link. Please advise--Erinamukuta (talk) 10:11, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Africa 2019 - GhanaEdit

Wiki Loves Africa started 1st February and ended on 15th March. I am coordinating our national jury process. I would like set up for national process.SAgbley (talk)

SAgbley, here is your campaign. --Alexander 23:10, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

we are facing a challenge. Jurors are unable to see images in round one --Erinamukuta (talk) 15:52, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Erinamukuta, sorry that I did not respond earlier. Do you still have this problem? As far as I can see, you did not activate the first round, and Montage did not distribute the photos between the jurors. I have just done it, and now each of your three jurors has 638 photos to grade. Is it fine? --Alexander 08:33, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Falles 2019Edit

2019 edition of Wiki Loves Falles started 20th March and will end on 30th April. We (User:19Tarrestnom65 and myself) are coordinating the process and would like set up for it (for which we will be extremely grateful, as we are newbies). We already have a category in place (c:Category:Uploaded via Campaign:wlfalles 2019). B25es (talk) 19:48, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

B25es, please, leave me a note (on this page) when your upload period is over, and you are ready to start the grading. --Alexander 20:42, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
The upload period has just finished and we want to start the greding. We two prizes, for diferent kind of stuff pictured. Do we need two uses of the tool, just one? Thanks. B25es (talk) 14:18, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
B25es, Montage allows you to import photos from a given category or from a list, and grade them. It is up to you to decide whether you want to grade the photos for your two prizes completely independently (e.g., using different criteria), or you grade them together and then choose two suitable winners from the top of the list. From our side, it would be easier when only one grading campaign is used for each competition. --Alexander 15:21, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
Ok. We have them in two categories:
* Category:Wlfalles:fotografies que il·lustren un aspecte social de la festa fallera
* Category:Wlfalles:fotografies que il·lustren una falla
We will evaluate them independently. B25es (talk) 14:09, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, but, how do we access the tool? Thanks.B25es (talk) 07:04, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

B25es, sorry, I missed your previous message. Your two campaigns are here: one, two. Enjoy! --Alexander 08:43, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

¡Gracias! B25es (talk) 16:21, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Sorry to disturb you but we are having some problem.

  • Wiki Loves Falles-1 has five jurors and 220 photos (257 less 57 disqualified). We want all photos revisited by all jurors (quorum 5 jurors per photo). But the applications has distributed a smaller amount of photos (from 127 to 138) to each juror. We understand that all jurors should have 220 photos to check.
  • Wiki Loves Falles-2 has five jurors and 166 photos (185 less 19 disqualified). We want all photos revisited by all jurors (quorum 5 jurors per photo). But the applications has distributed a smaller amount of photos (from 94 to 106) to each juror. We understand that all jurors should have 166 photos to check.

Maybe we just made some mistake, but we cannot fix this situation.

Could you help us? Thanks! B25es (talk) 20:12, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

B25es, I had a look at this campaign. When I start from scratch (i.e., delete the round, import the files anew, and set up the round), all files go to all jurors. I used same settings as in your first round. However, I switched off the jurors/maintainers/organizers filters, because I had bad experience with them in the past.
You can try to delete this round and create it again with the settings you want. It's possible that your problem occurred because you asked for a different number of jurors in the beginning and only later switched to five jurors per photo. Then Montage already took the earlier number into account and could no longer re-distribute the files. But it could also be that the filters do something strange and should be deactivated. --Alexander 21:52, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
All has gone OK. Thanks for your help! B25es (talk) 15:02, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Earth 2019 - CanadaEdit


Would it be possible to setup Montage for Wiki Loves Earth 2019 - Canada? You can put myself as organiser of the Canadian instance. Thank you in advance, Benoit Rochon (talk) 13:40, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Benoit Rochon, your request is really premature, given that WLE has not even started. Please, reach us when the upload period is over, and you are ready to proceed with the grading. --Alexander 17:12, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
I sure will. Thank you Atsirlin. Best. Benoit Rochon (talk) 11:58, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Bad Request: can not activate empty round, try importing entries firstEdit

Hi! I fill all the information required but cannot activate the first round of WLE in Colombia. Maybe @Atsirlin: could help us?. When I try, appears the following message Bad Request: can not activate empty round, try importing entries first. The category of the contests is Category:Images from Wiki Loves Earth 2019 in Colombia. --Sahaquiel - Hast du eine Frage?   20:10, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Well, you have to import some photos before starting the round. --Alexander 21:10, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I dit it. Three times. When I tried to start a round I put the category (the one above), and fill the required fields. Then save the round, appears the message "please be patient" and then an error "Internal server error: <ExceptionInfo [pymysql.err.InternalError: (1054, u"Unknown column 'img_user' in 'field list'")] (39 frames, last=Callpoint('raise_mysql_exception', 107, 'pymysql.err', '/data/project/montage/www/python/venv/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pymysql/', 131, ' raise errorclass(errno, errval)'))>". Then I try to edit the campaign but it doesn't appear and option for add a category in that moment, and when I try to activate the round it shows the "Bad request" message. --Sahaquiel - Hast du eine Frage?   22:09, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I am afraid there is a problem with one of the files. Stephen or Mahmoud have to look into this, I simply do not have access to the database. In the meantime, you can try to make a list of your photos and import part of it using the 'File list' option. Then delete the round and import another part, and so on, until you recognize which file causes the problem. --Alexander 07:32, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
Hi! Same problem as Sahaquiel, in this case trying to activate the round for the Portugal campaign. --Rubén Ojeda (WMES) (talk) 15:09, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
Any chance to fix the problem? We received more than 1600 photos and seek for a single one giving the problem listing all of them would not be easy. --Sahaquiel - Hast du eine Frage?   01:16, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Well, someone has to look for this single one in order to fix the problem. I may do it, but probably not before the weekend. --Alexander 06:34, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Hey all, did a bit of debugging last night, we think it's an issue with the new MediaWiki schema. We'll make some quick changes ASAP. Will post back here once the fixes are deployed. Thanks for your patience! --MahmoudHashemi (talk) 16:54, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Debugging update: I've deployed the queries for the new schema and started a test round which appears to be working. Let me know how it works for you! --MahmoudHashemi (talk) 08:03, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

@Sahaquiel9102, Rubén Ojeda (WMES): Can you re-check, please? Yarl 💭  08:16, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

It works for me! Amazing! Thanks. --Sahaquiel - Hast du eine Frage?   17:53, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
