Gymnastics icons

Hi there! It seems like we both started working on these at the same time. It's my personal opinion that these files should all be the same size (most of the PNGs are 56x56), just so that they are as clean as possible. Unless you have any objections, I'll edit the ones you've already done at some point in order to reduce the size. If you want to do this yourself, go ahead!

The one file that we now have two of I'll nominate for deletion. Again, if you have an objection, feel free to say, but there's no reason to keep both!

I've also removed all the 1s from your filenames, as this is due to the uploader bug and I assume you intend them to be direct replacements. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 16:50, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lotǃ That all sounds fine to me. I am done for now, so you can work on the rest without conflict. I will fix the sizes of the ones I uploaded, though. Would 30x30px be better, since that seems to be the size they're actually used at? BMacZero (talk) 16:56, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. 30x30 seems like a much better choice. I wonder why they were at such strange sizes before? Anyway, thanks for your understanding! Hopefully we'll have a full set and we can clear them off the most used rasters list. :) NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 18:16, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

BMacZeroBot and other people's uploads

I've uploaded lots of images that won't matter to this request (they're in Category:Other people's pictures by User:Nyttend, which I intentionally didn't list) that don't have certain dates, simply because the sources don't have certain dates. Of course, tons of other people's uploads don't have certain dates, whether for the same reason or because the uploaders didn't record photo dates. If possible, would we be able to run with EXIF information? And if that's not available for an image, would the bot be able to handle partial dates? I wonder about files like File:332-334 Lackawanna Avenue, Scranton.jpg (year only), File:1938 Lincoln County Courthouse.jpg (year and month), in particular; I know that totally dateless images like File:Beaver Creek Bridge in Wind Cave National Park.jpg can rely on the {{Unknown}} template, and non-number dates can rely on {{Other date}} (I've uploaded some images with nothing but "Fall 1980", and those got the other date template), but outright partial dates I don't know. Nyttend (talk) 13:00, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

@Nyttend: Thanks for finding those templates. I'm currently set up to use the "Date Time Original" metadata field if there is nothing in "date=" at all - all of your photos have it, but the files you linked don't, and the metadata date they do have seems to be the date they were digitized. I'll work on integrating the Other Date template so we can handle differently-formatted dates, though we will probably still need the category to flag completely non-readable dates. BMacZero (talk) 16:48, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
"Other date" seems to be targeted toward displaying things like ranges, and/or, before/after, rather than less precise dates. I think what we want for cases where we only have month/year or just year is {{Taken in}}. We can use {{other date|?}} for totally missing dates. BMacZero (talk) 20:52, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Congrats. For some reason, the edits aren't being flagged as coming from a bot. The account has bot status, so I'm not sure why that's happening. - Eureka Lott 13:40, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
@EurekaLott: Thank you. Looks like I wasn't passing the bot URL parameter to the API correctly. I'll change that. BMacZero (talk) 15:43, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much for the help! I appreciate that you had the bot look for discrepancies between dates and categories; I never would have caught this obvious date error otherwise. Nyttend (talk) 12:11, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Wrong categories

Please see here. "Moray" is a type of fish, and their category would be "Morays", except that we categorise by binomial classifications, e.g. "Muraenidae X". On the other hand, "Moray" is a council area of Scotland. Can you try to ensure this doesn't happen again? Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 19:48, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

@Rodhullandemu:: I'm sure we'll run into other issues like that, which is the reason I'm adding Template:Check categories to the files. I can fix that specific category's mapping - but I'll have to do it when I get home this evening. Thanks for the report! BMacZero (talk) 20:54, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Heads-up

Hi, as an active colleague on upload projects, I thought I'd drop you a personal heads-up for my request for adminship, today being the last day for views.

Franklin Landers House

The photo of the Franklin Landers home does not show the front of the house. It is just the east side of the house. The front of the house faces south. I know this as I've owned the property for 20+ years.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.175.60.40 (talk • contribs)
@166.175.60.40:: Are you talking about this image: File:Franklin_Landers-Black_and_Adams_Farmhouse.jpg? I don't know anything about that image, I only adjusted some formatting on the page at the request of the author. You might want to ask @Nyttend:, who is the original photographer, about it - or, since this is a Wiki, you can simply change the text yourself when you see an error (see Commons:Welcome). I pinged Nyttend for you. BMacZero (talk) 20:22, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

File(s) appeared in Category:Pages using Information template with incorrect parameter

Hello BMacZero, it seems that your latest changes or uploads of the file(s) Royal Air Force Marine Branch broke a template. This assumption has been made because the file(s) appeared in the maintenance Category:Pages using Information template with incorrect parameter. To fix this issue please check this category for further information. If the file(s) is/are not contained in the maintenance category anymore someone else already did the work and you can ignore this message.

Bot seems to have added the wrong century of birth

I noticed a category with a creator born circa 1550 {{other date|ca|1550}}. This bot added Category:15th-century births. It seems to me that it should have added Category:16th-century births, since 1550 is in the 16th century --Robert.Allen (talk) 08:30, 3 February 2016 (UTC).

@Robert.Allen: Thanks for the report! I fixed the bot. BMacZero (talk) 16:34, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Additional bot request

Last year, you helped me with a big bot project, replacing dates with {{Taken on}} in more than thirteen thousand image description pages, as typified here. Could you request permission for a more limited project that doesn't affect my images? Occasionally I'll see the phrase "Taken on [date]" in the date field of description pages: sometimes "Taken on 4 February 2016", sometimes "Taken on February 4, 2016", sometimes even "Taken on 2016-02-04", and in the case of one formerly active photographer, "Taken on 2016-02-04". I was wondering if you could request permission to have your bot replace all of these phrases with {{Taken on}}? I didn't request mass bot-tagging of dates in this section for anyone other than myself, since of course lots of files aren't photographs in the first place and thus shouldn't have this template, but when an uploader is already using the phrase "Taken on [date]", we'll have almost no mistakes, and any exceptions will have already been there before the bot came through. Nyttend (talk) 14:34, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@Nyttend: I think that's a good idea. I'd be happy to do if needed, but I think there may be other bots already making similar substitutions (like the ones listed at Commons:Template i18n/bot replacements) that would be better suited to add this to what they're already doing. I know that @Schlurcher: has one, but there might be others. Maybe we should raise this at COM:BWR and see if anyone can pick it up easily. BMacZero (talk) 18:15, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good. I didn't know that there might be any better-suited bots than yours; I'll be happy to leave a note there unless Schlurcher is able/willing to help. Nyttend (talk) 18:18, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
@Nyttend: Yeah, my bot isn't capable (yet) of translating all the different date formats people use into YYYY-MM-DD - when I did your photos, I made some assumptions, including that they would all be in YYYY-MM-DD format already (if I remember correctly). Probably not too much more work to add that, but there are other bots that already have it. BMacZero (talk) 18:28, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Text accompanying Frank La Roche images

A large number of photographs by Frank La Roche uploaded 9 June 2016 contain as part of their description, "Steamboat NORTH PACIFIC (left) and unidentified steamboat at the Oregon Improvement Company and Union Pacific dock", which may be an accurate description of some one photo, but is misleading for many others (especially ones that show other boats!). I'm inclined to delete this text, but there may be some documentary purpose (unknown to me) to keep it. I believe you did the upload; do you have some intention here? - Jmabel ! talk 02:07, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: All the text on those files just comes directly from the source pages at the University of Washington. It looks like it got copied around on their end accidentally when they were copying the "Prospectus of the Lake Union Improvement Company" bit to appropriate files. I'd say it's a mistake and should be removed (except from the image it actually applies to, of course; I think it's this one. Fortunately it only seems to affect about 22 files.

A ship ID

I was wondering about your identification of the ship in File:Four-masted bark ITALIA at anchor at dock, Seattle, Washington, ca 1904 (HESTER 18).jpeg. Yes, it is a 4-masted barque called Italia, but the date of the image is described as c. 1904 and the one you linked seems to have been given that name later, in 1911. (Actually, I have serious doubt about the image being Seattle c. 1904, but that's another matter.) Any thoughts would be welcome. - Jmabel ! talk 03:17, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Yes, I would agree that the identification is sketchy. On closer inspection, it doesn't seem to have enough topsails, either. What are your thoughts on the date? BMacZero (talk) 05:04, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
More inclined to believe the date than the location. I've looked at a lot of old photos of Seattle; that doesn't look like Seattle. Of course, it's possible that both the date & location are wrong. Maybe the ship ID is right & if we can trace where Hester worked when we can work it out: a city that looks like that, at a date where this ship would have been the Italia. But for now, I'd be more inclined to remove it from that category and just put a note about the doubts (and a reference to info about that ship; I agree it might be that ship). - Jmabel ! talk 14:58, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
I see I had made a note earlier that it sure looks like the same ship shown at http://www.themodelshipwright.com/high-resolution-ship-plans/sailing-vessels/italian-four-masted-barque-erasmo-erasmus/ (first photo), identified there as Italian ship Erasmo. That was built 1903, which would be congruent with the date given here. However, text on that page suggests that ship was more likely in the Southern Pacific than the Northern. - Jmabel ! talk 23:04, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
@Jmabel: Those do look pretty similar, but Italia has one yard second from the top instead of two, and more notably the anchor port (?) looks to be a lot closer to the waterline. BMacZero (talk) 16:05, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
For what it's worth, though, my friend Wendi says that according to the Seattle Daily Times a ship called Italia was in Port Townsend, Port Gamble, and Port Blakeley (all on Puget Sound) in August and October of 1904. I just have a feeling the caption & the photo don't correspond. - Jmabel ! talk 23:13, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
I'm back to thinking Seattle after all. The buildings at left in this photo seem to be the same ones at right in File:Union Pacific Dock at the foot of Main St, Seattle, Washington, June 6, 1891 (LAROCHE 179).jpeg, and the latter is definitely what it claims to be. - Jmabel ! talk

Hi. :) Since you were so nice to make the corrections, I thought I'd ask you about one more thing I missed in this file. Second row, left column, the second word should be: KLASYCZNY.

"Does the bot know something?"

In File:Timber for the construction of the Mechanics Pavilion at the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition, Seattle, Washington, ca 1893 (LAROCHE 210).jpeg, where your bot added Category:Road-rail vehicles: is this based on something I'm not seeing, or is the bot just confused? - Jmabel ! talk 00:31, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

@Jmabel: It seems to have come from the tag 'Railroad cars--Washington (State)--Seattle', which got interpreted as Category:Railroad cars which is a redirect to Category:Road-rail vehicles. That is probably not a good redirect. Should it redirect to Category:Rail vehicles instead? BMacZero (talk) 01:05, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
I would think so. - Jmabel ! talk 01:10, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Gothic revival architecture

Followup to your participation at Commons:Categories for discussion/2012/01/Revival architectural styles: I've gradually been moving individual "revival" categories to "Revival", but there are so many of them — over 1,400 in total! I've just now given up on the manual moves and made a massive CommonsDelinker request, and SteinsplitterBot has already begun moving the categories and their contents. At the rate things are going, we may see everything moved before a significant amount of time has passed, but then of course we'll have to start on the Romanesque revival categories. Thanks for your help in the discussion and followup! Nyttend (talk) 14:37, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

@Nyttend: Great, thanks! I am now set up to do searches and request large batches of these, too - hopefully we can finally burn through them (see my comment on the CfD page).

@Verne Equinox: The author is just listed as "C. W. Vernon" at the source, and it's possible I mis-identified the person this was supposed to refer to. Maybe it's more likely that is is [Charles William Vernon https://viaf.org/viaf/68820651/#Vernon,_Charles_William], though there's not much information available about him, either. Does that seem more likely to you? If so, I'll fix it up. BMacZero (talk) 04:22, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
@BMacZero: Charles seems to be the correct name. See this bio of him which mentions the book about Cape Breton. Based on this article, I would have to question whether Vernon was also the photographer.Verne Equinox (talk) 03:59, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
@Verne Equinox: That is probably true. I located a PDF of the book, but no illustrators were named that I could see, though some are signed. I've gone ahead and changed the authors of those images to "unknown", and moved all the images from Category:Clarence William Vernon to Category:Cape Breton Canada at the Beginning of the Twentieth Century: a Treatise of Natural Resources and Development. BMacZero (talk) 07:36, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I added a few other images from this work some years ago. I'll add them to the new category soon.Verne Equinox (talk) 03:00, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Odd photographer credit

File:Plymouth Congregational Church interior, Seattle, February 22 1912 (WARNER 196).jpeg was uploaded with photographer={{Creator:Arthur Churchill Warner}}, but says in the description, "Original photograph by Nowell and Rognon", certainly Frank Nowell and Orville J. Rognon. Not sure what was the basis for the misattribution (which I'll fix), but thought you might want to look into it. - Jmabel ! talk 03:45, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jmabel: The source data lists Warner as the Photographer, and the bot just trusts that data. Hopefully there aren't too many of these; I don't know that I can detect them automatically unless they always say "Original Photograph by X" at the end of the description or something. I know they do name other photographers in that field in at least some cases. Thanks for the catch! BMacZero (talk) 04:16, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I've spotted a few like this, I'll just fix them where I can spot them. - Jmabel ! talk 04:32, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
@Jmabel: Relatedly, there are about 30 images that list "Warner and Randolph" as the photographer (example). The descriptions say "Stamped on verso: Warner & Randolph". The collection page mentions that S. P. Randolph was Warner's business partner, so I imagine the "Photographer" line should still just credit Warner. Does that sound correct to you? It could also be referring to Warner's wife, but given that it's "stamped" it sounds more like a business thing to me. BMacZero (talk) 05:04, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
I don't know Warner & Randolph, so no real opinion. Frank H. Nowell, on the other hand, was kind of a big deal; I'm surprised en-wiki doesn't have an article on him. He was (among other things) the official photographer of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. - Jmabel ! talk 05:12, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Changing "depicted place" on material from a GLAM

Are you sure https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Historic_American_Buildings_Survey,_Arnold_Moses,_Photographer_May_12,_1936,_VIEW_FROM_THE_PARK._-_Block_Houses_(Nos._1_and_2),_Central_(110th_Street)_and_Morningside_Parks_(123rd_HABS_NY,31-NEYO,33-4.tif&diff=321419550&oldid=278667421 is desirable? Usually, on material from GLAMs, we try to leave their descriptions, etc., intact. - Jmabel ! talk 01:51, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

@Jmabel: - The reason I made the change was that the original page was registering New York; New York County; New York and Category:New York; New York County; New York as redlinks on Special:WantedPages; and of course, it wasn't automatically linking to en:New York City. I can definitely understand wanting to make sure none of the imported information is lost, but when we can make improvements to the pages without losing any information it seems like we should do that - this is a wiki, after all. I didn't know anything about any standard practices for these kinds of images. BMacZero (talk) 06:21, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
I certainly see your point. Perhaps we should take this to a broader forum? It seems we have two valid principles in contradiction, and I honestly don't know how they are best resolved. - Jmabel ! talk 15:43, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Asahel Curtis photos from University of Washington Library

Not that you could have been expected to have known or to have done anything about it, but those Asahel Curtis photos you uploaded from University of Washington Library were very incompetently curated by someone at the library. Some dates clearly off by years (I can tell from what buildings exist, or the state of a regrade of land), locations off by miles (e.g. a picture of the construction of the Montlake Cut misidentified as being the construction of the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks), confusion of the two different Rainier breweries, not to mention things like using the original, briefly-used name of a still-extant early 20th-century building and not mentioning a different name that has now been used for over a century, etc. Worst supposedly professional curation of a set of photos I've ever seen. I've been sending the library a correction or addition on roughly one out of five of these, and even that's been with restraint on my part. - Jmabel ! talk 01:07, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

@Jmabel: That's a shame. At least you can help fix that. I stopped adding to-check categories to the images since I didn't think they were useful; I could go back through and add a check category to the ones you haven't edited yet if that would help. BMacZero (talk) 17:11, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Probably would. I've just been going through Category:Seattle rather than the to-check category, but it's an unusually slow slog because the error rate is so high. I can't really trust anything there, so I'm probably only getting through 5 to 20 a day. I'm really lucky that ex-Wikimedians Benjamin Lukoff and Rob Ketcherside (both of whom left to write books on Seattle history, and Rob went on to serve several years on the city landmarks commission) have been willing to "play backup" and confirm when I'm at all in doubt. Rob even further researched a few of these where he wasn't sure either. - Jmabel ! talk 19:16, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
@Jmabel: Category:Images from the Asahel Curtis Photo Company Photographs Collection to check is being populated with all photos from that collection that you haven't edited yet. BMacZero (talk) 03:47, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Broken link

File:Bolcom Mills offices, lumber and shingle mills, 1540 NW 46th St, Ballard district, Seattle (CURTIS 1738).jpeg: Source link is broken. Also, it refers to being part of a panorama with something else, but I can't find the other photo. - Jmabel ! talk 04:13, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

@Jmabel: The Accession Number and Source links on that file work okay for me here. I think you're right about the panorama, it doesn't look like it matches up with any of the other Bolcom Mills images. BMacZero (talk) 17:02, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
Working for me now, too, must have been a problem on the UW site. Still, what do you think we should do about the pano thing? - Jmabel ! talk 23:13, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
@Jmabel: The description (even the identifying numbers in it) is identical to the one for File:Bolcom Mills, Ballard district, Seattle (CURTIS 1740).jpeg, which clearly is a panorama, so I think the description for that file got inadvertently copied or reused for this one. Therefore the description on File:Bolcom Mills offices, lumber and shingle mills, 1540 NW 46th St, Ballard district, Seattle (CURTIS 1738).jpeg is probably just entirely wrong. BMacZero (talk) 04:47, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I've emailed them to let them know. This keeps being the highest ratio of problems I've ever had in a set like this from a GLAM. I've stopped even informing them of mere obvious typos, because I'm still sending multiple emails per day with corrections. - Jmabel ! talk 16:45, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

Attributions to Frank Nowell

On images like File:Architectural rendering of the Arctic Brotherhood Building, Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition, Seattle, 1908 (AYP 286).jpeg, why do we have {{Frank H. Nowell}}? Nowell was a photographer (the official photographer of the A-Y-P Exposition) and certainly did not do these architectural drawings. - Jmabel ! talk 05:00, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Again, all this data just comes straight from what the University of Washington says, and they identify Nowell as the author of that image. I guess I'll have to run back over these again and mark the ones that look like photographs of artwork for a manual author check. Hopefully I can do that tonight. BMacZero (talk) 19:05, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
@Jmabel: Forgot to ping. BMacZero (talk) 19:57, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Permission question

When I do something like this, what should I do with the permission field? Curtis's death date is not relevant. - Jmabel ! talk 19:26, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

@Jmabel: The license should be changed to whatever license applies to the corrected information. So if we knew the new, real photographer's death date, we could change the deathyear to that. I don't think we know Boyd or Braas's death dates, nor do we know which one took the photo, so I think {{PD-1923}} is the best we can do in that case. BMacZero (talk) 06:39, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable. - Jmabel ! talk 07:34, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

NPGallery

Hey BMacZero, just wondering if you've made any headway on Commons:Batch uploading/NPGallery. Looks like you might have your hands full with Commons:Batch uploading/University of Washington Digital Collections, so no rush. Cheers, --Animalparty (talk) 22:25, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

@Animalparty: Thanks for the reminder! I did start looking at it and writing some code a few months ago. It's a bit tricky to collect all of the metadata because there isn't an API or an easy, ordered URL format, so I have to write some new code to do that. I actually had a chance to work on that just now, so now I have the bot combing the site and gathering up all the image IDs. That should be done tomorrow if it doesn't go wrong.
I'm also still not too sure about how to automatically verify the public domain status of media. I posted a comment just now on the Batch Uploading page about it. BMacZero (talk) 04:31, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

@Jmabel: That's an error that can be undone.

Pace of Seattle-related uploads

I feel like I'm drinking from a firehose! - Jmabel ! talk 23:58, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

@Jmabel: Haha. Yeah, I noticed that I had missed about half of the Peiser uploads when I did that collection a while back, so I pointed the bot back over there. How do you track them?
You are awesome, by the way. BMacZero (talk) 01:15, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks.
I try to track anything that goes in Category:Seattle or Category:Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, because that pretty much guarantees that they are undercategorized. Traditionally, I move well beyond those to other Pacific Northwest categories, but for about 7-8 months you've been dumping enough into just those to keep me more than busy. (Not that this is all I do on Commons, but it's one of the things I've taken on.) I think you've uploaded somewhere between 2000 & 3000 to these categories, and (except for recent uploads) I've long since gotten the low-hanging fruit, so most of the remaining older ones require some research.
In the process of this, I've been able to point http://pcad.lib.washington.edu at images of about 10 buildings for which they previously had none, and I've given several hundred corrections to the UW Libraries, though I've noticed that, while they've expressed thanks a few times and made some of these changes, they've ignored about half of my corrections; I've ended up with an awful lot of descriptions that say things that begin "Despite the University of Washington Libraries reference to …" etc. - Jmabel ! talk 02:04, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Isn't it, though? And there aren't a ton of photos of those buildings on the west side of First between Cherry and Columbia, so this is great to have. - 03:00, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

& since you've been following this work, check out the history of the one I've retitled as File:Seattle City Light Yesler Substation, 7th Ave and Yesler Way, Seattle, 1919 (CURTIS 493).jpg. About the only things the UW librarian got right are that the building was somewhere on Yesler Way & had something to do with electricity. - Jmabel ! talk 06:10, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
