Unsuitable behaviorEdit

Your contempt for my work might be considered aggression. I do not believe it and I'm sure you have the desire to do well. Be more constructive and do not forget that a administrator must give the example of his qualities by his actions. I want, in the moment, forget this little misunderstanding --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 14:04, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Archaeodontosaurus, Your work as photographer is superb, but unusual layout of the description pages is just confusing and unnecessary. File pages are suppose to be as uniform as possible to help others navigate them and they are not suppose to have htlm tables or other unusual formatting as it is interfering with regular templates. Your reverts go against "You agreed to allow others to modify your work here. So let them." mantra explained in Commons:Ownership of pages and files. --Jarekt (talk) 14:42, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
The addition does not interfere with anything. By cons it comes over the automatic title and it is more complete. This addition also has the merit of being universal and apply to any image. I claim the right to be able to improve the work on COMMONS and I encourage the others to do it and this for all the types of image the debate having gone beyond the model ArtWork. Removing freedom of expression will kill the project. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 17:36, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Standardisation request for File:London tram cars.jpg, and a query..Edit

I added some more information using {{information field}}s but when I queried Fae on the Commons IRC channel about there being a project to track what sorts of fields were being added using this, they suggested I talk to you.

In respect of this media, if there's a more "appropriate" template this could be converted to use it should perhaps be converted to that, if you can suggest which one to use.

The more generalised query, is to do with a concern about their being the potential for collision of usage between, various of what might be the same named "information field" name. I will also not mine were in good faith added in English, and thus are not necessarily going to be automatically translated for users whose language is not English, Commons is multilingual isn't it?

If there was a version of {{information field}} which utilised an appropriate Wikidata property perhaps ( which could be translated) I might feel slightly happier. Maybe is this something you could feedback into the Structured Data implementation? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 19:44, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

ShakespeareFan00, "Other fields" field in {{Information}} was mostly meant for creating other templates with additional fields or for adding preferred attribution line. People use it for adding other fields directly to the files but a prefered solution would be to use proper existing template. Some alternative infoboxes are listed in Commons:Infobox_templates. {{Artwork}} is at the moment most powerful as it can fetch most of the metadata from Wikidata, if you have item there devoted to your object. If I was uploading now file like File:London tram cars.jpg, which is based to a specific record in some official repository, I would create unique item for it on Wikidata and use QuickStatements to upload all the metadata and than use {{Artwork|Wikidata=..|...}}. To fix infobox of File:London tram cars.jpg without using wikidata, I would also use {{Artwork}} and try to map fields to the fields there. {{Artwork}} does not have a "publisher" (I am planning to add it and {{Artwork/sandbox}} already has it), so that field would have to be added by {{information field}}, or for that file it should probably go into author field. --Jarekt (talk) 20:32, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Used {{photograph}}; but left the existing {{description}} for comparison. I can remove the latter if you approve. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:51, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Template:Art PhotoEdit

Hi, currently the files using this template are in Category:Images without source, where they don't belong. Do you have another solution to fix this? Jcb (talk) 11:27, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Jcb it seems like field "strict" is broken. I will look into fixing it, but give me a few days. --Jarekt (talk) 13:23, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
Jcb I think it should be fixed now. Please verify. --Jarekt (talk) 16:57, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
As far as I can see, the files are still in Category:Files with no machine-readable source. Jcb (talk) 17:35, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
Jcb, I do not know how files end up in Category:Files with no machine-readable source, all I know is how Category:Images without source is assigned. I looked at 2 files: File:Adriano, 117-138 ca, collez. albani.JPG which is not in Category:Files with no machine-readable source and File:'The Raising of the Cross' by Tania Dey.JPG which is. Both files use Template:Art photo with "source={{own}}" and I did minor edits to both to make sure it is not a cache issue. Their html source codes have identical: <tr valign="top"> <td id="fileinfotpl_src" class="fileinfo-paramfield" lang="en">Source</td> <td> <span class="int-own-work" lang="en">Own work</span></td> </tr>, so it seems like that directory is assigned based on something else. --Jarekt (talk) 18:57, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
See meta:Talk:File_metadata_cleanup_drive/How_to_fix_metadata#Mystery_files_in_c:Category:Files_with_no_machine-readable_source. --Jarekt (talk) 19:13, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
Ok, never mind. I am glad they are out of Images without source, because that is the one I do maintenance from. The other category is pretty useless anyway. Jcb (talk) 19:24, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Polish cavalry in SochaczewEdit

Hi Jarek, I have just sent you an e-mail with the information. I hope it works. Best regards from Warsaw. Boston9 (talk) 15:36, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Adrian, Thanks a lot. It is a very interesting article. I think this photograph might warant a short article explaining what we know of it's history. I will look into writing one. --Jarekt (talk) 03:17, 12 November 2018 (UTC)


My photo Nyerges-hegy is alright, I already have that tag, I checked it!... what is your problem???Kapeter77 (talk) 08:01, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

I think you are refering to a tag I left on your page 5 years ago [1] . --Jarekt (talk) 21:27, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Creator:Lucien JonasEdit

Hi, Why did you delete this? I think that Creator templates should not ever be deleted, even if not used. Beside there is an issue with the place of death. Any idea? Regards, Yann (talk) 13:26, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Yann I have no idea why I have deleted it a year and half ago. I rarely delete non-empty creator templates. I might have been working on removing the unused ones after their metadata was moved to Wikidata, under assumption that they are at this point trivial to recreate. --Jarekt (talk) 13:38, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

File:The Nativity A16363.jpgEdit

"Lua error in Module:Institution at line 562: Tried to write global AC_cats." I think this is related to your recent update. Can you check? Multichill (talk) 15:49, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

I am working on it. --Jarekt (talk) 15:50, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
It should be   Fixed now and Category:Pages with script errors is emptying out. It was caused by Module:No globals, a module that converts sloppy and potentially unsafe code to actual errors. It is great at detecting unintended global variables, but each "discovery" shows up as error. --Jarekt (talk) 16:13, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing it! Multichill (talk) 22:34, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
