I don't want to be boring, maybe you have forgot this.--MaGa 10:01, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

yes I did forget. I found MediaWiki:Com-poty-thumbsize, but it already has correct MediaWiki:Com-poty-thumbsize/hr. There is also MediaWiki:Thumbsize translated at translatewiki and it also has HR version. Where do you see this "Thumbnail size"? --Jarekt (talk) 13:58, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
See this. I hope that rest of the interface in Croatian won't be a problem.--MaGa 14:24, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
Commons:Picture_of_the_Year in Croatian (see here [3]) seems to have correctly translated thumbnail size. --Jarekt (talk) 02:00, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for that. The second part of forgotten thing is: can you fix date format here? It is displayed in English instead of Croatian (see problem marked with two red elypses).--MaGa 18:12, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
User:MaGa, According to Help:Extension:ParserFunctions that page should be showing dated in Croatian, but I guess it is not working right. I did some changes. Can you check if it helped? --Jarekt (talk) 02:51, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
Perfect, it's OK now. Last thing: can you add translation in Croatian of template to it's language list? I would do it, but, it's protected from editing for all but admins.--MaGa 16:31, 13 March 2019 (UTC)


d:Q28810348 has a bit weird data imported from Commons. Looks like it went wrong in this edit. Can you have a look? Multichill (talk) 17:42, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Yes my bad. I had regex looking for strings like "|pretty_display_date = 14th century" and if found than adding {{Other date}}, I tested it an few dozen pages but I guess I did not realized that we might have "14th century BCE". --Jarekt (talk) 02:09, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - development update, March 2019Edit

This text is also posted on the Structured Data hub talk page. You can reply there with questions, comments, or concerns.

A development update for the current work by the Structured Data on Commons team:

After the release of multilingual file captions, work began on getting depicts and other statements ready for release. These were originally scheduled for release in February and into March, however there are currently two major blockers to finishing this work (T215642, T217157). We will know more next week about when depicts and statements can likely be ready for testing and then release; until then I've tentatively updated the release schedule.

Once the depicts feature is ready for testing, it will take place in two stages on TestCommons. The first is checking the very basics; is the design comfortable, how does the simple workflow of adding/editing/removing statements work, and building up help and process pages from there. The second part is a more detailed test of depicts and other statements, checking the edge-case examples of using the features, bugs that did not come up during simple testing, etc. Additionally we'll be looking with the community for bugs in interaction with bots, gadgets, and other scripts once the features are live on Commons. Please let me know if you're interesting in helping test and fix these bugs if they show up upon release, it is really hard to find them in a test environment or, in some cases, bugs won't show up in a testing environment at all.

One new thing is definitely coming within the next few weeks, pending testing: the ability to search for captions. This is done using the inlabel keyword in search strings, and will be the first step in helping users find content that is specifically structured data. I'll post a notice when that feature is live and ready for use.

Thanks, let me know if you have questions about these plans. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Template:Art photoEdit

Hi Jarekt, this edit seems to have included the template documentation a second time. See Template_talk:Art_Photo#Documentation_included_twice. Can you fix? Thanks in advance, MartinPoulter (talk) 12:11, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

  Done --Jarekt (talk) 12:39, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Great requestEdit

Hi Jarek, as usual I have a great request to make. Beginning of March I took this photo of Beata Chomątowska during a conference in bad light, from distance. Later we established contact and decided that this pic is no good, and much better is needed for Wikipedia. So we met today and this is the result 1 and 2. Could you please now delate the first photo? I agree, it gives me a really bad name as a photographer. Many thanks for your support here! Boston9 (talk) 20:43, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Boston9, I think the original photo is fine, you sometimes have to work with conditions you encounter and if there is not enough light you do what you need to do to get a photo. I would argue for keeping it as the lady looks quite different in those 2 photos and might be helpful in identifying her in other photographs. In general we do not delete once uploaded images unless there is some issue with it. If you (or Ms. Chomątowska) feel strongly about it I will use justification #7 of Commons:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion, but if it was mine photo I would just keep it. --Jarekt (talk) 00:25, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi Jarek, yes, unfortunately the second reason is that she does feel strongly about that pic. She does not like it, to put it mildly, so it was she who arranged the meeting to take another one. Thank you. Boston9 (talk) 06:57, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
  Done --Jarekt (talk) 20:09, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! Boston9 (talk) 20:33, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - early depicts testingEdit

The Structured Data on Commons development team has the very basic version of depicts statements available for early testing on Test-Commons. You can add very basic depicts statements to the file page by going into the new “Structured Data” tab located below the "Open in Media Viewer button." You can use the Latest Files link in the left side nav bar to select existing images, or use the UploadWizard to upload new ones to test with (although those images won’t actually show up on the site). The test site is not a fully functional replica of Commons, so there may be some overall problems in using the site, but you should be able to get a general idea of what using the feature is like.

Early next week I will call for broad, community-wide testing of the feature similar to what we did for Captions, with instructions for testing, known bugs, and a dedicated space to discuss the feature as well as a simple help page for using statements. Until then, you're welcome to post on the SDC talk page with what you might find while testing depicts.

Thanks in advance for trying it out, you'll be hearing more from me next week. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
