Commons:Batch uploading/LSHEdit

Do you have more details about the LSH upload? There are other frameworks that do implement chunked uploading (it's not difficult to implement). Alternatively, you could provide an xml/json file with all the necessary data for the upload, and some other bot op could upload.Smallman12q (talk) 14:55, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi. The metadata delivery for the LSH upload was delayed which is why there have been no recent updates. I'm hoping to get it later this week though. Which are the other frameworks that have implemented chunked uploading? We have been looking at several different ways of uploading the files. My preprocessing would be aiming to construct one meta file per image file containing the image page contents and the (on-wiki) target filename. Part of the problem with putting the upload on someone else is the lack of an easy way of transferring the images, it's ~1.5 TB after all. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 11:01, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
I've implemented it in my own Python 2.7 class (~500 lines w/ujson, pycurl, and cstringio...the stash and stashupload portion is ~100 lines using mmap). Honestly, not sure about which frameworks at mw:API:Client_code support it. It's not hard to implement ( fir the framework overall you're only looking for 4 functions, login, stash, stashupload, logout). Regarding the total file size, if you could host the images on an ftp server or some site, I could easily grab and upload them from there. If you can get that TB plugged in, I'll be good to go. I've done that for 1000's of files with User:Smallbot. Alternatively, I could clean up the source and pass it along.Smallman12q (talk) 00:01, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Sorry for the delayed reply. If you could pass along the source that would be great. Since the images will most likely be hosted on one of the museum machines that is probably the easiest solution. As a bonus I also get to see working code which might explain why my own solution didn't work. If the offer remains open and if we can put the images on a machine which is accessible I might take you up on the Smallbot offer though. As I mentioned we had been looking at a few different alternatives for the main upload but whatever the solution we pick I would need something like your tool during the test uploads. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 12:59, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
Will refactor/add some documentation and put it up tmrw. Cheers.Smallman12q (talk) 00:00, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
I've put up the initial source at User:Smallman12q/PyCJWiki. I'll add better doc/expand this weekend, but it's not too long, and hopefully useful.Smallman12q (talk) 02:30, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Sorry for the delay. In addition to everything else I was in the middle of moving which put a halt to many things. I'll try out the code later this week but looking through it it looks pretty straight forward (to use). Many thanks! /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 19:00, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
That's fine. Let me know if it works. Smallman12q (talk) 23:41, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Data delivery was delayed once again. Will try it on an unrelated image (when I get the time) and make sure it works. Will get back to you as soon as I've tested it. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 16:54, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
OK sorry for the huge delay. Finally got around to testing the script (not on a large file though). It works fine apart from two issues. the first is that I couldn't get it to work using the https address of the api (got 'An error occurred: 60:', 'SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate'), http worked fine though. The next one is that "commons.setEditToken()" should be added to the instructions since it is required before attempting an upload (might be worth calling it automatically if self.edittoken is None in any of the upload methods). I'll try to find a larger image to give it a proper test but so far it seems to do the trick =) /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 23:33, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
this was the file btw. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 23:36, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
The SSL error stems from libcurl failing to get the CA certs. You could try "sudo apt-get install ca-certificates" to make sure the proper ca certs are installed. You could add self.sitecurl.setopt(curl.SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0) to init to skip verification (since you'll only be contacting the wiki with the shouldn't be a security issue). Relevant links: [1], [2], [3]. I purposely don't fetch editToken automatically. Permissions should be set explicitly by the programmer...from IRL, I've had horrid experiences with implicit permissions. It's only a line, so not too troublesome. Glad to see it worked, at least with a small file and a single chunk. Cheers.Smallman12q (talk) 01:40, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
It worked with a somewhat larger file (122.02 MB) as well =). No SSL issues this time. Many thanks for a great tool! /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 19:49, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

WLPA campaignEdit

Hi, André. I've translated header templates for WLPA campaign in Spanish and Catalan, but in the UploadWizard they show the footnote "NOTE: Please do not use this template directly! This is just for translation": Not sure how to fix it. --V.Riullop (talk) 08:18, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

I think the problem comes from {{Upload campaign header wlpa-es-ct}} that calls directly the lang versions for before and after the contest. Probably {{Upload campaign header Wiki Loves Public Art 2013 April}} should be moved to a /layout subtemplate and this template should choose the lang version with {{autotranslate}}.
Another question: {{WLPA-is-running}} sets start time at 201305012200 UTC and this is 2013-05-02-00:00 for CEST timezone. If I have not missed anything, it should be 201304302200. --V.Riullop (talk) 09:02, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for spotting this. Upload campaign header wlpa-es-ct isn't designed in the way I originally intended since I had to bake {{WLPA-is-running}} into that rather than implement it in the upload campaign. This also means I'm now calling in a different way from how was intended. I'll sort this out.
And also correct with respect to the timestamps. Now changed. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:40, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
And the "NOTE: Please do not use this template directly!..." should be sorted as well. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 12:48, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

WLPA imagesEdit

I'm using Commonist to upload images. Do you need a participant to test the upload wizard?--Pere prlpz (talk) 23:02, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

I'll change it, but Commonist is already running and a few tens of images will be uploaded with "es" tonight.--Pere prlpz (talk) 23:15, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Can you run your AWB again to clean the remaining images? Please notice that some of them are wrongly tagged "ct-es" instead of "es-ct". Thank you.--Pere prlpz (talk) 20:39, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

WLPA logosEdit

I have removed the logo of Amical from the template Wiki Loves Public Art 2013. We did not use it in Wiki Loves Monuments Andorra as we did not want to create any confusion with chapters. Now we are in process of recognition as a thematic Wikimedia organization and I think it is better to wait the final decision. Anyway, I am impressed by your work preparing the infrastructure of the competition. Great work! --V.Riullop (talk) 09:32, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! My fault about the logo, just wanted to make sure you guys knew we appreciated all of the hard work. Still understand not wanting to cause any confusion =) /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:55, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Upload Wizard campaign editorEdit


I'm dropping you a message because you are a Upload Wizard campaign editor who may not have used the tool, or at least not recently. Consensus has been determined that this user right should be removed from users who are not using it or not planning on using it (see previous discussion.) If you have a reason that your upwizcampeditor be kept, please let me know below! If you think you got this message in error, please also let me know. :) ~riley via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 00:41, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi @~riley:. I definitely still need it since I'm the Swedish coordinator of WLM and also use it to handle ÖDOK/ In general campaigns don't regularly need poking but when they do it's normally with short notice. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:06, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, throught I removed you from the distribution list. You're good, don't mean to bother you! :) ~riley (talk) 11:19, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
No worries. Better one message too many than one too few =) /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 11:34, 24 May 2016 (UTC)


Hi, Thank you for downloading the excellent collections of Nationalmuseum.   Will you continue to load a collections?

If so, then the request, including download this portrait: Gustav I, 1497-1560, konung av Sverige

Good luck and all the best--IgorSokol (talk) 07:06, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi. There are ~300 images left to upload but unfortunately the image you mention is not one of them. The museum has however changed their license so most of the images on their website should now be available as Public Domain. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:08, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, the images that can be obtained from the site of the museum are large in size, but not high resolution. The images that you downloaded high resolution images, big thank you for this work. I wonder whether continued this work with images of other museums in the world. I am interested in photos of portraits of the rulers of Europe. In the genre of painting and high quality--IgorSokol (talk) 11:45, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Voila =) /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:46, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Many thanks. Excellent image. I'll wait for your new downloads. Good luck--IgorSokol (talk) 13:36, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I wonder whether the continuation of the collection of Nationalmuseum? If yes, then when. You wrote that there are 300 images--IgorSokol (talk) 18:44, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Uploads by LSHuploadBotEdit

Hello, André. LSHuploadBot has been putting files in Category:Photographs. That category isn't supposed to have files, just other categories. Can you stop the bot from putting files in it? --Auntof6 (talk) 04:22, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

@Auntof6:: Thanks for letting me know. I've blacklisted the category for any future uploads [4][5] and I'll clean up the category at the end of the current round (since it is non-trivial to correct it for the ones which are currently uploading). /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:54, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
You're welcome, and thanks for your reply. I'm also curious about why Category:Photograph albums is used, even for images that don't seem to show such albums. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:59, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
The matching was made based on the museums use of a keyword "Resealbum" (which means roughly "Travel photograph album"). Looking at the images I see that they are numbered so they are all part of an album but (individually) of course don't depict that. I see that previous uploads have been moved down into a created subcategory of Category:Bild från familjen von Hallwyls resa genom. I'll do the same with this. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:50, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good. Thanks again. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:55, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
The bot is still putting things in Category:Photographs. I've removed it from a lot of files myself, because having it interferes with a check I do. Can you give an estimate of when this current round might finish? Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 12:49, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
@Auntof6: I've been going over the category and categorising the images a couple of times. The last images should be uploaded today after which I'll do a final cleanup of Category:Photographs, Category:Portrait photography and Category:Photograph albums. Apologies again for the interference and thanks for your understanding. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:13, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good, thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:03, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Image such as Lampett i stora salongen, 1700-tal - Hallwylska museet - 106889.tifEdit

Please stop your bot for adding Category:Lightning to Chandeliers images such as the above while it should be Category:Lighting or the more specific Category:Lighting fixtures sub-categories!

Pierre cb (talk) 20:02, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I've corrected the mappings so that this won't happen with future uploads. I've also corrected the rest of the ones which will be uploaded in this batch. I'll also go over Category:Lightning in the end of the batch to ensure there are none left there. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:00, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Commons:Categories for discussion/2016/12/Category:Historical images of Barcelona by Jenny BergenstenEdit

Hi André, I'm a little bit confused about this Jenny Bergensten and his claimed authorship of thousands of pictures. As far as I understand, he's possibly the responsible of the scan procedure and therefore, he's not relevant enough for having his own category (at most, a hidden category stating "uploaded by" or "scanned by"). Could please show your opinion in the discussion mentioned in the subject of this topic? Thanks --Discasto talk 14:46, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I've commented on the discussion. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 15:19, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

About Category:Bild från familjen von Hallwyls resa genomEdit

Hi André. I work on historical photographs of Italy. I am working again on pictures of the Hallwyl Museum to identify the location and (if possible) the author of the photo, and I update each photograph and his category. When I worked the first time on these pictures (on 2016 December 7) I made a mistake. I don't speak Swedish. So at that time I don't understud that the cat Category:Bild från Johanna Kempe, f. Wallis resor genom Italien och Schweiz (1888) was for a photo album and not for all the trips in Italy. So I gave this cat to all the pictures of Italy found in the cat Category:Bild från familjen von Hallwyls resa genom. Of course this is wrong. Now I can identify each picture and put it again in the new generic category Category:Von Hallwyl family photo albums. Do you think that this is a good solution? Or do you propose a better solution? I think that the files in this category must be put in one of the photo albums. What do you think about? Please let me know what do you think it's the best thing to do. Thank you so much. Sorry for my bad english. Best regards. --DenghiùComm (talk) 02:40, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi DenghiùComm!
Thanks for all of your work with the images. I've also made the Hallwyl Museum aware so that they can update their internal metadata based on your work!
Don't worry about the categorisation these things happen. Only images with a Numero d'inventario starting with "HWY LXVI:K.G" should be in the category any others you can move back up into the Von Hallwyl family photo albums parent category and I'll try to sort them automatically later =) Many thanks. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 07:44, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
@DenghiùComm: I've now also added a key for the subcategories of Category:Von Hallwyl family photo albums. It is probably not complete but I hope it helps. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 07:59, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Oh, that's fine ! Thank you very much ! I see, a lot of files that are yet in the generic category, they have the right cat of the album. So it's only necessary to cancel the over categorization. I do it. After we see how many files need a automatically sort. Thank you so much again. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 13:51, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
@DenghiùComm: Yes that is true. I've been using cat-a-lot from the search interface to categorise many of them and had the plan to write a little script to remove the parent category if it was in one of the children... but I still haven't found the time to do it ;) /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:56, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi André. So, I cleaned the generic Category:Von Hallwyl family photo albums of all the files that was over categorized. Then I cleaned the Category:Von Hallwyl family photo albums - Johanna Kempe, f. Wallis resor genom Italien och Schweiz (1888) of all the files that I had miscategorized in it: the most part of them must be in the cat "Frankrike och Italien"; I have done it. Thank you so much for your key for the subcategories of albums: it was a BIG HELP for me to give the right category to each file. It is a very good instrument to work quickly ! Thank you again ! Now, a little notice for you: can you please control some files of Venice, Triest, Padua, Abbazia (Croatia) and Fiume (Slovenia) which I put back in the generic category, because they have not an inventory number with C or G but with H (that means the album "...resan till Algeriet och Tunisien". I think there is a mistake in the inventory number... perhaps... Thank you very much. Now I go back to finish my work of the files of Italy in the Hallwil Museum collections ... :-D Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 10:07, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
(post scriptum): There are a lot of other files of the Archaeological Museum in Naples which have an inventory number with E (more than 100 numbers) like this. But they are not of the photo album of the trip in Norway (E)...

Hi! I finally took the time to write that script for handling overcategorisation and combined it with search queries sucha as this to clean up a bit more.
The is the H category "LXVI:H."? If so that is not the same as "LXVI:K.H.". I realised that I was missing some subcategories for albums which I now creating. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 14:30, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much ! Please look at here: E  Done Von Hallwyl family photo albums - Resor genom Schweiz (1924). Cheers, --DenghiùComm (talk) 14:49, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
And here: B   Done. Thanks. --DenghiùComm (talk) 14:56, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
And here C   Done, and here G  Done, and here P  Done, .... etc... etc... --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:05, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
I Fixed E but the others will have to wait for now. Thanks for finding them =) /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 15:10, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks again. --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:15, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Wonderful ! Other to do are : here I  Done, and here L  Done, and here P  Done, and here R  Done, and here K.I.  Done, and here K.K.  Done, and here K.L.  Done, and here K.M.  Done. Finish ! Thanks very much ! Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 16:54, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Fixed the last ones. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 14:53, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Wonderful ! Thank you so much. Cheers, --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:37, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

ME too, . I don't speak Swedish, so please try to categorise everything in the Category:Exhibitions in the Livrustkammaren with the correct english name of the exhibit, so we can avoid problems and save time. I will try to clean this category, but because i do not understand the swedish titles it will be very difficult. thank you.--Carolus (talk) 23:10, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

@Carolus, Fred ande: Honestly I'm not even sure there is such a thing as a "correct English name" for these exhibits. Being a Swedish museum their exhibits will have Swedish names. Some of the newer ones likely also have English names but probably not the older ones. I've pinged staff at the GLAM who might know more. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 08:22, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

File:Fotografi av Vue d´une ville - Hallwylska museet - 104870.tifEdit

Hi André. I started a discussion in the geography group on it:WP to identify the location of this picture of an unidentified city in Italy. And really they identyfied the city as Trento. Now there is a little datation problem. Somebody sayd that the picture is taken after 1889 because the San Lorenzo Bridge in iron was finished to build in that year. Now, how it is possible that a photograph of 1889 is in a trip album of 1880 ? What do you think about? Have a nice day ! --DenghiùComm (talk) 07:41, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

if necessary we could link the whole category to the Swiss users on dewiki and verify the possible dates, they seem very good in comparing the photos with ancient maps saved on the Swiss federal gov't database. I mean if they prove that at least some of the pictures depict places after 1880, than it is possible that Trento is not the "intruder" in the series, but maybe a "9" with a short leg or consumed ink was read as a "0" on an old folder.--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:44, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi Alexmar983 and DenghiùComm. Thanks for your research into this. I took a look at the notes in the museum which says it was purchased between 1880 and 1900. And when I took a look at the category that is also what the (Swedish) description says so after 1889 would still work as a date. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:45, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

For your information...Edit

... the Swiss geography group on de:WP has identified the other two picture of unknow location in the Hallwyl voyage albums.

The files name was changes (or will be soon), and I updated the files. Cheers, --DenghiùComm (talk) 07:14, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for this. Most of my contacts at the GLAM are on vacation now but once they get back I'll ping them about all of these changes so that we ensure the data also gets updated on their end =) /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:46, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

No photo album categoryEdit

Hi André. Sorry if I still disturb you. Casually I found some files that haven't the category of any photo album. What do you think, how can we quickly find these files between the 7.700 files of "Category: Images from Hallwylska museet"? Thank you very much for your help. Cheers, --DenghiùComm (talk) 16:30, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi DenghiùComm! No worries. I've categorised a few more (by searching on inventory number). If you find any other uncategorised ones then drop me a note with a link here and I'll investigate why it hasn't been categorised.
Other than visually inspecting the remaining images there is no easy way of seeing if there are any more historical images among the uploaded images. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 07:38, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi André. Ok. This picture was one File:Amfiteater, Les Arènes, Arles - Hallwylska museet - 107229.tif, and this other one too File:Fotografi från Neapel, Italien. Vy från havet - Hallwylska museet - 106829.tif. The others I can't remember the subject. Have a nice day. --DenghiùComm (talk) 07:49, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Casually I found now these other in your PetScan File:Fotografi från Korfu, Grekland - Hallwylska museet - 104583.tif, File:Fotografi från Korfu, Grekland - Hallwylska museet - 104582.tif, File:Fotografi från Korfu, Grekland - Hallwylska museet - 104584.tif, File:Bild ur Johanna Kempes samling från resan till Algeriet och Tunisien, 1889-1890."Tunis - Hallwylska museet - 91810.tif, File:Fotografi av Hildesborg.Hildesborgs altan - Hallwylska museet - 106439.tif, etc. There are a lot. You can find them quickly if you search by word like "Bild" or "Fotografi" or "Algeriet" or one of the other words that usually are in the file name on the historical images. --DenghiùComm (talk) 08:18, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Looks like there was one category I missed. HWY LXVI:K.#. I'll investigate it and add it. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 08:57, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Fine that you have found another category. Strange to distinguish K. and K.# What means this? There are categories K.O. and L. they seems too to be the same... --DenghiùComm (talk) 09:31, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Done. I also noticed that there are about 60 images in LXVI:K.H. missing because the images were not correctly linked to the physical photos at the time of upload. I've collected them in Category:Media_contributed_by_LSH:_add_object_connection but I'll need to do some more work on these in addition to adding the category.
LXIV:I:L.a.f.b.#. Doesn't look like it is a travel journal so it shouldn't be part of that category tree. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:33, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
I believe K.O. and L. differ only by to whom the images belonged. I.e. if btoh people travelled together and bought a copy of the image it might be included twice in the archives. But that is only my guess. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:35, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
With the LXVI.K.# and missing LXVI.K.H.# images identified I don't think there are any other which are systematically missing from the category tree. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 09:40, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I saw. Our message crossed them... --DenghiùComm (talk) 09:41, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Ekonomiska kartan och upphovsrättEdit

Hej! Eftersom du har laddat upp tre kartblad från Lantmäteriets kartserie ekonomiska kartan med speciellt tillstånd från Lantmäteriet(bl.a. den här), och apropå raderingen av ett annat kartblad från Lantmäteriet (se här), så tänkte jag att jag skulle fråga dig vad som egentligen gäller. På lantmäteriets hemsida har de skrivit "Kartor i Lantmäteriets historiska kartarkiv som är äldre än 70 år omfattas inte av upphovsrätten likt "nutida kartor"" men "[i] de historiska kartserierna, Generalstabskartan (1827-1971) och Ekonomiska kartan (1935-1978), har alla ingående kartblad ännu inte uppnått 70 års ålder. Lantmäteriet har ändå valt att avstå upphovsrätten till de blad som är yngre än 70 år, vilket innebär att dessa kartserier i sin helhet kan betraktas som upphovsrättsfria." ("Upphovsrätt till kartor och bilder"). Det tolkar jag som att bilderna helt enkelt är PD, och att t.ex. mallen Template:PD-because skulle kunna användas för att beskriva detta. Är det något jag har missat eller misstolkat? moralist (talk) 06:57, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Det var inte PD när jag först laddade upp dem (därav att jag begärde ett tillstånd från dem). Men i år så lättade de ju på sina upphovsrättsregler så det kan ju hända att det var i den vevan som de öppnade upp dessa som PD? /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 15:36, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Ja, så är det nog. Tack för svar! moralist (talk) 18:26, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Errors in mass uploadsEdit

Could you fix your bot? It prescribes Knivsta KMB runestones images to Uppsala instead of Uppland, and NEVER adds DEFAULTSORT tag! Also, if it uploads more than 2 images for the same stone, please, create a new "Upplands runinskrifter (X)XXX" category and put all images in there! Macuser (talk) 12:09, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

@Macuser: Thanks for being interested in the images. Do you mind giving me a link to one of the Knivsta/Uppsala runestone images? The metadata all comes from the National Heritage Board so either there is a mistake in their data or we've done some mismatch during the upload. One possible explanation is that Knivsta municipality has only existed since 2003, so the images (which pre-date Knivsta Municipality) may be tagged with Uppsala Municipality (which was true when the images were taken). Note that this is just a guess on my part, I would need to see an actual image to verify.
Since the upload did not just consist of runestone images there is no natural value to use for DEFAULTSORT, the standards for how and when DEFAULTSORT is used differs between the various types of images which were uploaded.
Where specific runestone categories existed (and were connected to the runestone object on Wikidata) the images have been put into these. As for create a category as soon as there are two images of the same object that is not the default threshold for Commons. While we pre-emptively created some categories we quickly determined that this creation was more appropriately handled by humans who have a more natural feel for when a subcategory is warranted (again a suitable criteria for the runestones might not be applicable to interior images from a church). Sincerely /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 08:20, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
@André Costa (WMSE): Check File:U462 Prästgården - KMB - 16000300026279.jpg - you put it to Uppsala instead of Uppland! It has a correct Fornminne tag, which says Knivsta! Macuser (talk) 09:22, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
@Macuser:Ah I see. The archeological finds database correctly lists it as Knivsta Municipality (because it is being kept up to date), the image database however still lists it as Uppsala Municipality (which was true when the image was taken). /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:33, 27 April 2018 (UTC)
This is a known bug at Riksantikvarieämbetet and investigations are ongoing on how to fix this first in the source and then in the uploads. Ainali (talk) 21:10, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello!. You should always try to categorize your uploaded media in a more accurate category. In this case, four categories has been redirect to Category:Indigenous traditional healers from the Americas. Before upload a media, you should browse by categories to determine the most convenient one/s (or create a new category). Perhaps you prefer create a nem Category as "Indigenous traditional healers from the South America". Thanks. Jmarchn (talk) 17:52, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Jmarchn:. Thanks for your interest in the images and for helping out with the categorisation. The images are part of a batch upload from a Swesish museum. The images are tagged with keywords there which are mapped to categories here (see the mapping document). The process includes some attempts at getting to more specific categories (of the type Rivers in Brazil rather than Brazil + Rivers). Unfortunately a lot of intersections which are trivial to do by hand are impossible to automate so some overcategorisation is inevitable. If you see a large number of images whoch has systematically been miscategorised in a certain way then let me know and I'll see if I can do a batch correction and/or if it is fixable for future uploads.

Translation requestEdit

Hello André, may I ask you for some help? The Template:Created with/sv (working together with the Template:Created with .../sv) needs a professional translation. Examples how to do are the English version Created with .../en which is very simple, may be your language needs a more complicated layout like e.g. Created with .../pt or Created with .../es.
Far below at that documentation it can be seen swiftly how each selected language is translated. May be I made not clear what I am asking you to do, just give me a Ping to get more explanations. -- sarang사랑 08:18, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

@Sarang: The base text looks good but several of the topics use the incorrect form. E.g. diagram should be diagramet. It's unclear where these are translated. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:04, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
The base text is not yet complete, the case of unspecified pics needs to be added; this is when no statement for the W3C-validity exists, neither valid nor invalid; either it is not checked ("validated"), or the result of such a check is not told.
The topics are translated by the template Igen/top; because it contains very few sv-translations, for most topics the English text is used as default - like for diagram. If you will add some more topics, keep in mind that the template is very frequented and all should be done with one edit. Or you use the talk page. Thank you for your help -- sarang사랑 12:44, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
I just made some corrections: when no translation exists, the standard text is shown (not the English text as before); the only translation into sv exists for "Vapen". The correct translation for "unspecified" is still unknown to me. -- sarang사랑 08:40, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi André. I think that in this file is some problem between the picture and his name... Best regards. --DenghiùComm (talk) 12:03, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

@DenghiùComm: Thanks for the report. I've added it to Commons:LSH/Error_reports. The correct item depicted is this one [6]. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:17, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I see now: the mistake is in the inventory numbers : LRK 10293 and LRK 10295.
Thank you. --DenghiùComm (talk) 14:37, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Expiry of GWToolset user group membershipsEdit

There is a proposal on the Bureaucrat's noticeboard to automatically expire GWT memberships after one year unless the user requests an extension. Please add your views and suggestions to the discussion. The reasonably informal process for getting access to GWT access will remain as is.

For archive hapiness. I'm happy to let this one expire. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:22, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Request for help to set up Wiki Loves Culture campaignEdit


This year Wikimedia Indonesia will host Wiki Loves Culture, starting this September. This event will welcome contributors to upload images related to Indonesia culture. Last year, we have a campaign upload page on Commons and was very effective to quickly track the images uploaded. We would like to have a special campaign for this Wiki Loves Culture as well. I don't know if there are some instances is available, but I have prepared codes here: User:Rachmat04/Campaign:wlc-id, just in case.

Please let me know if you need something else, and thank you for your help! :) ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 05:58, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Hello André, the campaign page has been created already by another user. I am just letting you know. :) Thanks, ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 03:22, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
@Rachmat04: Sorry for not getting back to you. I was away on holidays. Good to hear that everything worked out in the end anyway. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 10:23, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
