Notice If you want to see Python source code that supports some of my projects, go to Github and help yourself. The code is not written with reuse in mind... -- (talk) 15:57, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

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) 16:32, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for uploading this (and all the other) image(s)!Edit

Hello Fæ,

thank you for uploading this image from the LACMA (and all the countless other images, of course!)! It served us perfectly well as an illustration for a parochial periodical (in German Gemeindebrief). If you are interested, here is a PDF file of the issue; the image is on page 3, the attribution (for all images etc.) on page 25. Sidenote: This parochial periodical is kind of a non-commercial publication; it is free for all members of the parish; almost all work is done by volunteers; only the printing house get’s paid.

Best regards and thank you again, --Aristeas (talk) 08:56, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback! A nice looking publication, and of course it's for high quality printed reuse that our archive quality GLAM collections are at their best.   -- (talk) 09:02, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the nice words! Best, --Aristeas (talk) 10:23, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Crace CollectionEdit

  This thread may be parked for a while, but it is in my backlog. If it gets archived, feel free to un-archive it.

Hi Fae! About 18 months ago you did a fabulous job of scaping, de-zoomifying and uploading map images from the Goad fire-insurance map collection in the British Library c:Category:Goad fire insurance maps from the British Library.

I was wondering, if you still have the scripts to hand, would it be possible to do a similar job on the BL's Crace Collection of maps of London? [1] (about 1200 in all, of which about 285 have georeferencing). We have a few low-res uploads in c:Category:Crace_Collection, but it would be great to have the whole lot in high resolution -- there are some lovely maps there, eg a whole clutch from the Grosvenor Estate relating to the development of Pimlico [2].

It would be great to have these on Commons, both in their own right; and also because I'm hoping the "Layers of London" project [3] might be interested in some of the ones that have been georeferenced (and also some of the Goad maps) -- for them it would be a lot easier to deal with whole images from Commons as a starting point, rather than zoomified ones at the BL.

If you could find any time to look at these, I'd be really grateful. Best wishes, Jheald (talk) 14:55, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Tiny little extra to the request: it would be great if the Commons filenames could include the BL shelfmark, eg "- BL Maps Crace Port. 8.39" for [4] - this is quite helpful for seeing what's in a category, and where it's come from. Thanks! Jheald (talk) 18:52, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
I will take a look, but realistically a proper look may have to wait to the end of the month. -- (talk) 22:30, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

ESA duplicate picturesEdit

  This thread may be parked for a while, but it is in my backlog. If it gets archived, feel free to un-archive it.

Hi Fæ! Thanks a lot for User:Fæ/Project list/ESA! I'm categorizing many pictures from Category:ESA images (review needed) and found some duplicates of pictures previously imported in Category:ESA_files_uploaded_by_Revent. I didn't check all of them but it's likely all of these 254 photos have been duplicated. What should we do? Keep the oldest ones (those imported by Revent) or yours? vip (talk) 15:39, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

@: searching for a photo of Frances Carpenter here on commons, I came across the images from Category:Chevy Chase Club and noticed the TIF files, I was wondering if it makes sense these files to be added to the same categories like for example jpg files. Thank you for your time. Also, this being the last day of 2018, allow me to present my very best wishes for 2019! Lotje (talk) 13:32, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Request & Invitation for Wiki Loves Love 2019 JuryEdit

Hello @:, Hope you are doing well! I am co-ordinator of Wiki Loves Love 2019, an international Commons Contest aimed at documenting love in different cultures and the theme of 2019 is festivals, ceremonies and rituals of love. We would be honored to have you on Jury for the contest, which will happen from February 1- February 28 2019. Please let us know if it is agreeable, our team would be excited and thrilled to have you on board. The timeline would be after first week of March to couple first weeks of April.

Happy New Year to you. Wishing you lots of love and happiness.Wikilover90 (talk) 10:12, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

@Wikilover90: Count me in. Happy to help out with the final selection and comfortable to take part in Skype or similar conferencing as part of that process. -- (talk) 11:46, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

State Library of VictoriaEdit

[Acknowledging that you're on a Wiki break. This is not urgent, and can await your return/ later availability; hope all is well with you]

This search (for example) lists pictures in the collection of State Library of Victoria that are out of copyright. Each is available (via the "Available online" link) as a jpg, and as a high-res tif. The resultant "Download" pages lists them as "Out of Copyright". Could you automate downloading all their OoC artworks, please? They have an API. Category:Paintings in the State Library of Victoria has very few members. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:04, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

@Rodrigolopes: I was attempting to convert to a DR, but this seemed to fail on my tablet. There is no consensus to speedy delete files simply because they have linkrot. If you wish to act further, please use a DR rather than tagging with no source. Keep in mind that there is no guideline or policy that justifies using the no source template on uploads with linkrot. -- (talk) 09:31, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

FaeBot duplicate analysisEdit

Hello, would you be willing to run the FaeBot duplicate identifier again? Since you last ran it, thousands of flickr bot uploads have resulted in even more dups, and identifying them manually is a time consuming task. Kges1901 (talk) 21:31, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

I am unsure which project you refer to. My duplicate analysis using image hashes was for DoD images, it was not a generic Flickr duplicate finder.
If there are digitally identical duplicates, these should be easy to find with a SQL report. You would have to specific what the particular problem is, and I'm not really available for anything especially complex. -- (talk) 22:16, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Apologies for my vagueness. I meant User:Fæ/Imagehash, and specifically just for matching virin images, which is most of the problem. Kges1901 (talk) 00:53, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Wrong date from NYPL databaseEdit

I figure you have more idea than I how we usually handle things like the following. File:Totem Pole, Seattle, Wash (NYPL b12647398-66442).tiff had a date of "1898", presumably from the NYPL database. However, as any number of sources will attest, the totem pole was not erected on that site until October 18, 1899. So what do we normally do to handle that? For the moment, I've written in the date field, "1898 (says the NYPL database, but that's very unlikely: if so, major historical records are wrong about the erection of the totem pole in 1899)". Do we contact NYPL? I do that with various Seattle institutions, and they almost always update their databases based on my corrections, which I can then reflect back to Commons, but I have no contacts at NYPL. Or do we do something else? - Jmabel ! talk 00:20, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
