CC QuestionEdit

Hi Jarek, just a short question regarding this photo downnloaded from FB. Does this general license statement Creative Commons Attributions meet WC legal requirements? Boston9 (talk) 07:04, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Boston9 usually we do want the version number too, but in this case intentions are clear and defaulting to the current version seems OK to me. However someone could challenge that. --Jarekt (talk) 11:41, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! Boston9 (talk) 11:55, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of Template:BS-category/sandboxEdit

Hi, please undelete Template:BS-category/sandbox. It is a template sandbox, so it isn't supposed to be used anywhere (I tend to test templates in preview and may need to do so with this template in the future). Jc86035 (talk) 19:12, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Jc86035   Done but I blanked it so it does not show up in Category:Pages with script errors. --Jarekt (talk) 19:45, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Structured Data on Commons Newsletter - Summer 2018Edit

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.

Research

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.
Development
  • Prototypes will be available for Depicts soon.
Stay up to date!

Structured Data Newsletter - Research link fixEdit

Greetings,

The newsletter omitted two interwiki prefixes, breaking the links on non-meta wikis as you might see above. Here are the correct links:

  1. m: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. m: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.

My apologies, I hope you find the corrected links helpful.

Images without sourceEdit

Hi, you edits of the past 24 hours have added over 200 files to the. Could you please prevent this from happening? I have spent many hours on this backlog over the past years. I am apparently the only one working on this backlog, although this category contains a lot of blatant copyright violations, some of which have gone undetected for over a decade. This is a very time consuming job. Jcb (talk) 11:41, 7 July 2018 (UTC)


File:Chase Alice p.237.jpgEdit

Jarekt. This is an 1893 engraving after the ca. 1892 painting by William Merritt Chase. Chase died in 1916. Charles W. Kurtz, the author of the book in which it was published, died in 1909. And the book does not identify the name of the engraver. If not PD-old-100, what should the copyright tag be? == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 19:39, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Template:PhotographEdit

Hi, Is there a script to convert {{Information}} to {{Photograph}}? It seems it would useful when pictures have an entry in Wikidata, i.e. d:Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts/Item structure/Photographs, en:List of iconic photographs, etc. I am trying to fix WD entries for these. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:25, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Yann I would use Template:Information/subst2photograph template (version of Template:Photograph/subst template) by replacing "{{Information" with "{{subst:Information/subst2photograph|wikidata=Q..." as I did in here. --Jarekt (talk) 11:57, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
OK, but is there a script to do it, or should it be done manually? Regards, Yann (talk) 13:33, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Yann I do not have any scripts to do that, but I would use AutoWikiBrouwser to do the replacements. Also if you can generate a lookup table where one can look up wikidata item id based on file pagename than you can use trick described here to add different wikidata item ids to each page. AWB can be run in bot mode if you have bot account and if not I can run it for you. --Jarekt (talk) 14:00, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Removing the tagEdit

Can you please review and remove tag on this picture? The author of it changed the licence on Flicker on my request. I can send you our conversation.--MaGa 18:42, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Author changed licence a few minutes ago to CC BY 2.0, so please change it again. Sorry for inconvinience.--MaGa 19:23, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Done, As I watched the license went from CC-by-nc to CC-zero to CC-by-2.0 and original license was PDM. It is now CC-by-2.0. Congratulations. --Jarekt (talk) 19:25, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
