Notice For anyone following the Library of Congress batch uploads, the library has a planned power outage, taking the collections offline, from Friday 16 Feb. through Monday 19 Feb. The uploads will continue once the sites are back up. -- (talk) 11:11, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
Notice

If you are concerned that a category gets flooded with automated uploads, check that a template like {{Disambig}}, {{Photographs}}, {{Categorise}}, {{CatDiffuse}} or {{CatCat}} has been applied before complaining. In the case of my batch upload projects, any category marked this way will not be added to new photographs. -- (talk) 17:16, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Notice I have enabled two-factor authentication for my account. I have started using OAuth credentials for terminal logins, so I can continue to use old housekeeping and uploading scripts. Refer to Pywikibot OAuth and OAuth registration, it's not as complex as it looks. The BotPasswords alternative does not currently work for Pywikibot. -- (talk) 11:39, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

After a recent village pump discussion on Biodiversity Heritage Library duplicate files, the batch upload will continue but I shall be spending some time researching how to map the BHL uploaded jpeg files to their zipped/archived JP2 equivalent pages. User:Fæ/Project list/Biodiversity Heritage Library

This batch upload project is awaiting Commons allowing JP2 files. We've been waiting a LONG time. If you want to support this format, and these uploads, you can add a token to Phab:T161934. Thanks -- (talk) 14:21, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

@Green Giant: please undelete. Speedy was not appropriate, see master category talk. Thanks -- (talk) 11:32, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
  Done Hmm... we need a note of some kind on the description pages because it isn’t immediately obvious to look there. I only realised there was something wrong when I moved to the cropped version and saw it was in wide use. Anyway I’ve added it to the DR but my first instinct would be to close the DR and add the note to affected files together with perhaps a license review. Your thoughts? Green Giant (talk) 12:02, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
@Green Giant: There have been several other DRs, the license at the time of upload is correct, hence all get kept. A permission field note about the change of licence at the source makes sense. -- (talk) 19:25, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
I’d suggest {{change-of-license}}. A VFC task or a job for Fæbot perhaps? Green Giant (talk) 20:56, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
Happy to do it after Christmas. -- (talk) 21:06, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Now running, example diff. The change is limited to files in Images from norden.org uploaded by Fæ, which is probably most of them anyway. -- (talk) 14:29, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

  Done -- (talk) 15:50, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Not useful uncrop.Edit

here and here. The problem is that the maps are closed and not open, so the files are not useful. And the bot doesn't understand this. --DenghiùComm (talk) 23:54, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

If the opened map is not on IA, there's nothing a bot can do. If it is opened in the next 'page', the link can be changed and the uncrop will give that image. -- (talk) 18:11, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files on User:Martin H./World War I posters in the Library of Congress for jpg file matches to "Rehse-Archiv"Edit

I deleted three files that you uploaded again with PD-old-70-1923 from Max Pechstein (d. 1955), Heinz Richter (d. 1976) and Lucien Bernhard (d. 1972). --Martin H. (talk) 18:05, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for taking action. There must be a bug with the way LOC uploads are seeing previous deletions, as these should be skipped on the right API error. I think it's a rare case of handling multiple errors, and reacting to the first. I'll halt the poster upload until I can investigate. I can either trap the error correctly, or if that remains unreliable, filter on the WW1 collection name. -- (talk) 18:40, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
After investigating, I'll add a filter using partof to wwi posters AND then do a check on location. If location is given in a set of reliable countries where 100% of photos are going to be public domain, then upload should be fine and extra countries can be added as we go along. Exclusion examples: belgium, russia, inclusion: 'australia', 'canada', 'britain', 'united states', 'new york'
I'm deliberately running these through the wwipos collection as a test. Refer to User:Fæ/LOC#World_War_I_posters_(wwipos) -- (talk) 13:39, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

UTRS for CommonsEdit

I saw that you're one of the most active administrators on Wikimedia Commons and saw you discuss more unblock requests than any other admin, and after seeing you defend talk page access I couldn't help but think about Amitie 10g who lost talk page access simply because their request was rejected, to that end I wanted to suggest an UTRS for Wikimedia Commons but don't know if the reason this hasn't been implemented was technical or "cultural". I know that if I would propose it that it might be viewed as "trolling" so how realistic would you think that a UTRS proposal would be for Wikimedia Commons? Should I pitch this at the proposals Village Pump or at the Administrators' noticeboard? --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 19:33, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

I'm not an admin.
This has been discussed before. Effectively IRC takes the role of this type of back channel. UTRS is unlikely to get much support, so if clarification is needed for blocked accounts, it may be more practical to have more explicit suggestions to use IRC in the guidelines. -- (talk) 19:49, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Wow, I'm still surprised that you're not an admin and if you ever wish to become one I would be sure to vote  , well, I could try to draft a way for users who lose talk page access to know more about the IRC but after my own negative experiences there I think that a UTRS would be "more humane" but I will probably use the village pump sometime in the future to get more feedback. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 21:07, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

Have you ever been nominated for adminship? Would you mind if someone else nominated you? (well, not me as I don't exactly have a good reputation on Wikimedia projects)? --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 21:09, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

You can find past unsuccessful RFAs in the archive. I think it's coming up to 2 years since my last RFA, and I expect someone will nominate me, it's better than a self-nom. -- (talk) 22:39, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
I underestimated, it's been 2.5 years since the last RFA. A long time. -- (talk) 12:22, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

project improvementEdit

"and instead put that same energy into making proposals or assembling case studies, which have a chance improve the project."

that is very good. i did try m:Grants:IdeaLab/images of living people and m:Grants:IdeaLab/train reviewers to become ambassadors, but there is not much interest. you could try a grant to transform Commons:Help desk to be more like Teahouse (a proven model). but the lack of civility rests with the admin corps. until the culture changes to be image curators and facilitators, rather than image deleters, and commanders, there will not be much project improvement around here. and i cannot improve the reputation of commons among cultural professionals. Slowking4 § Sander.v.Ginkel's revenge 02:35, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

I'm off grants for the moment, due to a cancelled project.
Case studies with neutral summaries and high quality evidence, or high quality user essays, like the copyright of toys one, can make a difference. It's a long term gambit, but has the benefits of hindsight.
Commons remains a problem culture among many problem Internet communities. Until there is a recognition of a well defined issue by those with tools, trying to force change is not only a fool's errand, but is most likely to bruise the one who inserted the lever.
Many find firefighting rewarding, nobody gets a medal for a smoking ban. -- (talk) 09:54, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
@Slowking4: The problems stem from a desire to be just the Free-To-Reuse Repository rather than The Only Wikimedia Image Repository. IMHO, the majority of files deleted here are due to copyright concerns. What else can we do but delete an image and recommend it be transferred to local upload? If Commons ever overcomes the reluctance to host non-free media, we could eliminate half the online tension we have by allowing tagged images to be reduced in size and re-oriented to non-free use. It would be so much simpler than messing around with inter-wiki transfers.
On a related note, that whole talkpage template dispute could be mostly solved by trimming away unnecessary transclusions but nobody replied to my question. I might just suggest it on the relevant template talk pages. Anyway, remind me where I can find the button to DELETE SLOWKING4? :P Green Giant (talk) 14:55, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

report to the Board of TrusteesEdit

Thank you for giving me a good suggestion and showing me the proper way to act. At the same time, please consider that good education would imply that that Swedish youngster answers my message (for example, by simply writing what you wrote to me). Ignoring kind messages is highly impolite and unethical. Thanks again, Luenséin (talk) 11:43, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

I do respond to messages when I get time to do so. We all edit here on our spare time, and therefore normal triage applies to messages. --Jonatan Svensson Glad (talk) 17:02, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

PingingEdit

Regarding this edit at AN/B, I doubt those users will have received notifications. AIUI the process is triggered by the presence of a user-link or template in the same edit as a four-tildes signature. Otherwise people would be notified whenever postings containing pings get refactored, archived, or otherwise ‘re-entered’.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 20:38, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
