Karl Theodor Liebe

Danke für deine Fotos von der (mir bisher unbekannten) Karl-Theodor-Liebe-Büste in Moderwitz! Du weißt aber sonst nichts Näheres über diese Büste? Den Bildern nach zu urteilen scheint sie ja noch recht neuen Datums zu sein. Wenn sich herausfinden ließe, wann und von wem sie aufgestellt wurde, könnte man das im WP-Artikel über Karl Theodor Liebe ergänzen. --slg (talk) 11:39, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Steffen, eine Frau in Moderwitz erzählte mir, dass sie zufällig an diese Büste herangekommen sind und diese dann spontan auf dem Dorfplatz aufgestellt haben. Leider habe ich erst danach gelesen, dass auch das Geburtshaus von Liebe mit einer Tafel im Ort zu finden sein soll. Eventuell ist es das hier file:Moderwitz, Thuringia 06.jpg - auch wenn da keine Tafel zu sehen ist. Vielleicht komme ich in Moderwitz ja nochmal vorbei. Sind ja noch ein paar Ort offen in der Gegend. Gruß, --Arnd (talk) 12:15, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Daily gallery updater has failed on User:Aschroet/Uploads/Thuringia

Hello. This message is to inform you that a daily gallery in your userspace, User:Aschroet/Uploads/Thuringia, has failed. Due to software limitations, the bot has a hard upper-limit of about 6000 files per day (including overflow galleries), while your gallery had 22190 files.

This usually happens because a gallery is too broad, encompassing too many subcategories. Please review the logs here and request that a subcategory be excluded, or narrow your category choice(s).

Please make your request for removal within 4 days, or your gallery will be subject to removal.

Thank you. Magog the Ogre (via OgreBot (talk) 03:21, 28 June 2018 (UTC))

What properties does Commons need?


Structured Commons will need properties to make statements about files. The development team is working on making the software ready to support properties; the question is, what properties does Commons need?

You can find more information and examples to help find properties in a workshop on Commons. Please participate and help fill in the list, and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:53, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Bot edits

Hello Aschroet, thanks for your maintenance here, unfortunately it seems you are a part of the reason (the beginning of demotivation) why Commons protected edit requests is raised over 100 (before your intervention it was 5-10). Can you give me your script so I can fulfill your requests? -- User: Perhelion 07:40, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi User: Perhelion, my edits are often semi-automated or even manual. So i cannot provide a script. Just take the category as a game inbetween serious work ;-) Or just ignore the growing. I myself watch many maintenance categories which grow sometimes by 100 per day. --Arnd (talk) 07:58, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
Okay, vielleicht geht einiges einfacher wenn du der Gruppe der Admins beitrittst!? ;-) -- User: Perhelion 08:10, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
Wäre es tatsächlich. Aber dann müsste ich mich sicher um Dinge kümmern, die mir nicht liegen. --Arnd (talk) 11:22, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Structured Data on Commons Newsletter - Summer 2018

Welcome to the newsletter for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons! You can update your subscription to the newsletter and contribute to the next issue. Do inform others who you think will want to be involved in the project!

Community updates
  • Our dedicated IRC channel: wikimedia-commons-sd webchat
  • Since our last newsletter, the Structured Data team has moved into designing and building prototypes for various features. The use of multilingual captions in the UploadWizard and on the file page has been researched, designed, discussed, and built out for use. Behind the scenes, back-end work on search is taking place and designs are being drawn up for the front-end. There will soon be specifications published for the use of the first Wikidata property on Commons, "Depicts," and a prototype is to be released to go along with that.

Two research projects about Wikimedia Commons are currently ongoing, or in the process of being finished:

  1. Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.
  • Prototypes will be available for Depicts soon.
Stay up to date!
